Terry Parrish, a local contrac-

a long waiting period. After only
two weeks on the waiting list,
Sunday evening at 7:15 he
received word from Shands Hos-

with the matching characteristics
had become available, and he and
his wife, T.J.. left immediately.

According to Parrish's broth-

pleased with the success of the
transplant. The new liver began
secreting bile before the surgery
was completed., a process which
normally takes several days. The
first 72 hours following the sur-
gery are critical. As of Wednesday
morning Parrish's kidneys had
not become functional. necessi-

It is hoped that within the next
day the kidneys will kick in, and

thereafter.

City Receives Deed for Park Property


The City has received a deed for its second piece of proper-
ty in the vicinity of Fifth Street and Highway 98: this Lime,
from the First Union National Bank.
Two weeks ago, St. Joseph Land and Development gave a
deed on waterfront property the city had been dealing with for
some six months. The former deal had the Commission trad-
ing a piece of property, occupied by the old city warehouse,
across from the Gulf County Courthouse, for a block of prop-
erty adjoining the Fifth Street boat launch ramp at the west
end of Fifth Street.
This most recent acquisition was for property which, ironi-
cally, has been known locally as 'The City Park" for nearly 80
years, but has never been owned by the city. The most recent
owner was the First Union Bank. who obtained it in the sale
of the Florida National Banks to its banking firm. First Union,
like -Florida National, began receiving offers to purchase the.
valuable real estate.
Recently, First Union offered the block to the City of Port
St..Joe, agreeing to take substantially less than the appraised


price.
Friday of last week, the deal was finally consummated af-
'ter negotiations with -First Union by city attorney, William J.
Rish, and the Commission.
Gil Williams, president of the local First Union Bank, deliv-
ered the deed at about 2:00 p.m. Friday, to Mayor Frank Pate
and attorney Rish and received the check from the city for
:$148.000.
The deed was done and now the piece of property, most re-
cently kndwn as "First Union Bank Park" can now, correctly,
be referred to as 'The City Park."
Williams remarked, after the transaction, "I know First Un-
ion wanted the city to have the property for use by its citizens
as a park, I, personally, am glad to see this piece of beautiful,
prime real estate, placed in city ownership. It's a credit to any
city to have a park such as this."
Mayor Pate said, "I'm relieved that we finally were able to
purchase this property. The citizens of Port St. Joe now own
,all the way from Highway 98 to the water's edge."


Gulf,

Settle

Will Get Deed
to Freezer and
Lease to Fisheries
The,Gulf County Commission
has hammered out a deal with
the Apalachee Regional Planning
Commission, which will help the
giant Raffield Fisheries to stay in
business, following a disastrous
fire last March.
For the better part of a year,
the Commission has been dealing
with ARPC to settle a financial di-
lemma. ARPC was the fiscal agent
for a loan to Raffield, made from
federal funds provided Gulf
County to encourage industrial
-- expansion-o -'p 6vide'jdbs.: TThe .-
loan was made in 1986. to re-
build after another fire suffered
by the Fisheries. The loan funds
were provided by a federal agen-
cy, the U.S. Commerce Commis-
sion.
'SETTLEMENT DELAYED
Settlement of the loan has
been delayed due to the Com-
mierce Commission taking Raf-'
field to court, claiming all of the
loan was not spent according to
guidelines. There was rio claim of
mishandling funds or theft, but
only of not strictly following feder-
al procedures in the dispersing of
the loan funds. Commerce's case
was upheld by a federal judge,
with the judge stating in his opin-
ion that the rules call for a fine,
but that in all fairness a fine
should not be levied. Commerce
has not decided what to do about
the court's ruling, after nearly
four months.
Now, the County and ARPC
has come to agreement with Raf-
field to settle, which may spur
Commerce to follow suit.

In the agreement, Raffield will

Spare the Rod!

THE CURRENT SESSION of the Florida Legislature has beer
billed as a session which will not rock the boat. They will spend
their obligatory time- in Tallahassee, passing laws to publicly ob-
ject to crime, require every student in school to become a genius
and talk about the various and sundry problems which face the
state- of Florida and then get to the real meal of the coconut ...
adjourning early so they can all get busy campaigning for re-
election.
There was no intention of introducing any controversial legis-
lation in the current session, so as not to make any of their con-
stituents mad. Let's keep everybody happy. A happy constituen-,
cy is a contented constituency.
That was the intent until last week, when things began to get
sticky. Our correspondent in Tallahassee, Jack Harper, a report-
er of the old "snoop the facts out" school, has been writing the
last few weeks about the forthcoming sound of the shot heard
throughout Florida. Harper told us it was too good to last.
A COMMITTEE OF THE legislature has stirred up the hack-
les of parents all over the state of Florida by approving a bill, to-
* be introduced to the session, which would do away with corporal
punishment in Florida schools. If you have trouble reading legis-
lative bill, language, the words, "corporal punishment" means,
teachers will no longer be allowed to whip the britches of the lit-
tle darlings..
On the next page,' there was an article in the samevnewspa-
per, carrying the news about banning the board, which pounded
the table over teen age crime and violence in schools. One legis-
lator pontificated, 'Why all the fuss over corporal punishment.
*We have had it for these many years and we still have crime in
schools."
The same could be said for adult crime. Why build prisons;
"we have had prisons for these many years and we still have
crime!"
One uses prisons as a hammer over the head of criminals.
One also uses corporal punishment to encourage students to act
like little ladies and gentlemen.
Sparing the rod in Florida schools should send the kids the
word that we really mean business in our efforts to curb juvenile
disturbances... Yeah! !



Mother Lode
WHERE IS ALL THIS government money coming from which
is being thrown about all over Gulf County and Mexico Beach of
late? We were under the impression the government was broke
and such financing of local wishes was fast becoming a dying di-
nosaur.
We're not exactly objecting to the largess which is coming
our way, but we can't help but wonder how this could be, when
we fought -for such funds on things we really needed for many
years, only to be told. "The people of Gulf County make too
much money for us to give you any."
Actually, we were a little proud of that situation. We didn't
have the minions of people living on the streets here. Practically
everybody had a job. a roof over their head. food for their stom-
achs and clothes to cover their backside. We could get no hous-
ing money because the per' capital income here was too large to
qualify for the government hand outs. ...
IF THAT WERE SO, then where is it coming from now? In
just two weeks, Gulf county and Mexico Beach communities
have been the recipient of four sizeable grants. This is in addi-
tion to the quarter million dollar grant we are just now spending
the final dollar of here in Port St. Joe. This was to rehab houses
our elder citizens are trying to live in comfortably.
Within the past two weeks Wewahitchka has received
f$75,000 in funds for a park. Port St. Joe has received $75,000
for a park and a promise of about $250.000 to purchase proper-
,ty for another. Mexico Beach has received approval of a grant for
$50.000 to be spent upgrading a fine park they already have-
also financed by grants.
All these gifts come on the heels of grants received in the
county to install sewer and water in marginal revenue areas in
Wewahitchka: money to put a water system in White City; mon-
ey for a water system at the Beaches. It's true the Beaches and
White City must repay a portion of the money they received for
hnancing, but they each received a sizeable portion which they
Svill not have to repay.
IT'S TRUE SOME PLACE else would get this money if we
didn't. It's true, we deserve the parks and facilities this money
will buy just as much as Walla Walla. Washington. We pay our
taxes, too! The only question we are asking is: Where is all this
money coming from so suddenly?


I remember the first time 1I
heard the term 'Winter Olymn-
pics". We. were back up on that
hill behind Everett's Lake. Lebn,
Jackie, and Nicky Joe. the older
guys, were discussing some place
they couldn't really pronounce in
Italy where all these great ath-
letes from around the world had
gathered to compete In the winter -
games. :.
"What kind of games, Leon?"
Well, I'll have to admit right here.,
that probably wasn't the most in-
telligent question I've ever asked.
All I can say in my defense is I1
was 1956 and I hadn't turned ten
yet. And the cold winter air of late
January had slowed my brain
cells.
You can't imagine what a
mind like Leon's can do with'a
question like that .
"Oh Kes, they have all kinds
of contests; skiing, skating, bob-

'"Catapulting?" was I going
Down, hook, line, and sinker, or
what? "Leon, I've never heard of
catapu-" .
"Aw, It's been around for
years.- That Swedish guy used to
win it every time .. what is his,
Same, Olar. .Omar .. .Olaf. ."
Here, he turns and looks at
Nicky Joe. who without even a;
hint of hesitation says. Swensen-
hieur, Olaf Swensenhieur. I read
he's favored to take the gold
again this year."
"How 7-do you play?" This
couldn't 'a been any fun for those
guys. I was too easy.
"Well, first thing is you've got
to find the right tree."' Leon is
. searching the woods as he speaks
and I promise you, he looks dead
serious. "Of course, at the Olym-
plcs, they start 'working' their
trees as soon as the site is
picked.-
"Yeah. they'll get the trees
they want," I knew better than to
Sever believe anything Nicky Joe


said. That's easy to see, now,
"and then they clear out some of
the others for a landing zone."
:"Landing zone?"
"Kes. don't you know .any-
thing?" Well, naturally I'm feeling
pretty dumb by now ....
"Here's one that might work."
The guys gathered around a very
average looking pine tree that I
guessed to be about eighteen,
maybe twenty feet tall. They stud-
ied on that thing pretty hard,
walked around it a couple of
times, sho6k it, backed off and
looked .
"Who's going to ride?" '
"I dunno. Olaf is a pretty
small guy."
There's no question, the
lighter-the better.'
"A smaller guy could catapult
right over those thorn bushes
and land in that clearing." Leon
ran around the bushes and be-
gan to pile up what little snow
there was.
"Leon. what are you-"
"I'm making you a landing


zone."
"Me?"
'Yeah, you're 'going to love
this. Jackie and 'Nick are too
heavy for good lift: besides, I'm
not going to let them get ahead of
you on this one."
"Leon, it's forty feet from here
to that tree" 'I still didn't under-
stand this catapult game, but I
was beginning to doubt-,
"Yeah, it's not all that, far.
But I don't want to take any
chances until you get the feel of
it. I ve got to watch out for you!"
Nicky Joe climbed about
three-fourths of the way up "the
just about right tree" and rode it
down toward us. Leon and Jackie
quickly grabbed the top and
pulled it all the way to the ground
opposite the "landing zone".
'Hop on. Kes, we'll count to
three and let go, try to land where
we piled up the snow ....
"L-E-O-N?"

A Pioneer Panhandle Editor HaS Reached the 30" In


WALLACE FINDLAY DIED
the other day. I'm sure most of
you don't know Wallace Findlay,-
but if you came from up around;,
Blountstown like I think fully a:
quarter of, the people in and
around Port St. Joe did, you
should know of Wallace Findlay.
Wallace was the owner and.
editor of The Calhoun. County'
Record 42 years ago, when I first
took over The Star and has been.
writing his Musings column ever
since; up to as recent as. two,
weeks ago.
I had a lot of respect for Wal-
lade. He could sit down and flu1
ip' all the space he needed to fill.
even if he didn't have a subject to
write about. And it seemed so
easy for him. There was never a
week went by but what he had
his column written and in the
paper. The subject was always in-
teresting and the words always fit
the space he had to fill. I never
read his column when it ran over


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


to the next page because he
couldn't get said what he needed
to say on the editorial 'page. Nor
did. I ever see a filler on the edito-
rial page, which would be a good
. sign he had run out of words.
I NEVER RAN INTO Wallace
but what he failed to suggest that
all the editors in the Panhandle
should get together for a social
visit and get to know one another
better. We 'all knew each other,
but it was usually from writings
and looking for advice rather
than due to social mingling.
We never got together for that


social activity.
I suppose it was because we
were all so tied down ,by our
small, town weekly papers we
didn't have the opportunity to all
get out of town at the same town.
If the editor of a small town week-
ly doesn't get to the happening, it
doesn't get covered. If it doesn't
get covered, he doesn't get the
news .unless he scrounges and
scrounging takes time.
For whatever the reason, we
never did get together, although I
feel as if I knew Wallace as if we
conversed with each other every
day.


HE WAS A BIRD hunter who,
talked the activity as well as he.
did it. maybe lbetteri.
He kept quail dogs' and often
wrote of his favorite dog, which
died several years ago. Most of
out socializing together was done
on the dove fields of Calhoun
County.
Wallace was a scholar and a
school teacher. He was just an
editor on the side, but he worked
at lt a long time.:
Several years, ago, he semi-
reUtred and sold his newspaper to
a young fellow by. the. name of
Robert Turner. Robert is a fine
fellow who has upgraded the
County Record 'into a top-notch
weekly newspaper. He kept the
editorial page open' for' Wallace
and. he would fill it. up every
week. Robert doesn't know how
lucky he has been for all these
years. For the small town editor,
the editorial page takes more
time, planning and searching for
timely subjects than' any other


page of the newspaper.
WALLACE WAS AN unusual
country editor In that he.was a.
liberal. ,Most of our, breed are con-
servative, even at. times, to a',
fault.:: We all believe in' keeping
your nose to the grindstone for ;
whatever you have. His father.
was a'doctor for many.years in:' -
Blountstowyh, so he had no. ex- .
cuse forIhis slightly liberal bent.'
,He-had a green thumb, of
sorts: because he : was always
writing about his'vegetable patch,
"down on South Pear Street", .
the size :'and fruit of' his tomato
plants, his pear trees and. the
beets. Only Wallace would spend
time growing.beetsl
HE WAS ONE OF the last of
his breed among the Panhandle
editors.
There was a time when the
papers of the Panhandle had
Earl Sellers over at Chipley, Tom
Leonaid in Milton, Orren Smith


its Story
in Bonifay, 'The Marine in Dea-'"
niak Springs, Japk Dudley in Ha-
vana, T. C. Merchant at Monticel-
lo, Tommy Green [another liberal] .,

paper out every week. ,, '-,

knew-how much like giving birth
to a human baby giving birth to a

WE CAN NOW write "30" to
the long, fruitful and eventful life
of a valued member of the "fourth
estate". I'm sure he would say, in
a few hundred words or so, "It-
has been fun. If I had it to do over
again I wouldn't.change a thing."

Well, the Florida Citrus Commission made a bad mistake. They
have done something that may cost them millions of dollars in legal
fees, not to mention some of the members their jobs. Have you read
ab6ut it?
The commission.up and hired Rush Limbaugh, the noted radio
and TV personality who is as Republican and right-wing as Jesse
Jackson is Democrat and left-wing, to promote and sell Florida
orange juice. And they did it before they checked with National Or-
ganization for Women (NOW), the NAACP, Gov. Lawton Chiles, sev-
eral gay rights groups, the Save the Rodent Society, the organiza-
tion to Prevent Deer Hunting in the World, the National Suicide
Association, Larry King,, Dr. Dean Edell, Jane Fonda or his wife,
Ted Turner, and I'm not sure they even contacted the KKK.
Yes, they didi Reports I read indicate that the Florida Citrus
Commission, composed of 12 members (11 of them white men, one
article pointed out) actually had the. gall not to consult one of the
aforementioned persons or organizations before they signed a con-
tract for advertising Florida orange juice with Rush.
Of all the gall!
Well, they won't get away with it, that's for sure. Governor
Chiles has already promised to appoint two women to the board in
June of this year, and if I know anything about politics, there will
be several other appointments; probably a couple of gays, two or
three blacks, and a Russian or two on the board before this thing is
through.. (I wonder how 11 white men got on the board in the first
place, and I wonder what, the 12th member is as far as race, sex,
etc.)
Siobhan McLaughlin, head of the state chapter of the National
Organization for Women; is not about, to sit back andtake this
without a fight. "We never would have ended up with somebody like
Rush Limbaugh if the board reflected the diversity of the state," she
exclaimed as she poured a glass of orange juice on a fire in protest.
"We are very offended."
They really are. As a matter of fact, they called a national meet-
ing of the NOW organization for this past weekend to discuss how
to best express NOWs outrage. That report came from Siobhan her-
self. (I assume Siobhan is a woman, and she may be the 12th mem-
ber of the FCC for all I know.) : '
The NAACP wasn't far behind NOW. "It is totally unbelievable
that the Citrus Commission could possibly be so insensitive as to
choose a'person of such extreme views td represent the chief prod-
uct of this state and by inference the state itself," the Florida State
Conference of Branches of that organization said in a statement.
Arcadia citrus grower Joe Smith said farmers in his area
planned to buy as much juice as possible to display support for the
commission decision. "All we want to do is sell orange juice, and
people have made this into something that is political.' Smith said.
There seems to be fire on both sides of the fence
Personally. I don't drink a lot of orange juice and it's Ivery sel-
dom that I listen to Rush Limbaugh or watch his TV show, although
I have liked a lot of what he has said when I did. But I'm going to
start doing a lot more of both.
Orange juice burns my stomach, but it must be good for me.
And Rush Limbaugh must be saying a lot of things I agree with if
all those people are upset about his pitching orange juice.
I wonder why Ross Perot isn t in on this.

Parents Make! the Difference
Kids who feel good about
themselves make smart deci-
sions. So boost your child's sense
of self-esteem with the, following
strategies:

SAY YOU SAW IT IN THE STAR!


Reward your child. Give
praise, recognition, special privi-
leges. or increased responsibility
for a job well done. Emphasize
the good things she does, rather
than the bad.
Define household rules and
limits clearly-and enforce them.
But allow leeway within these
limits when appropriate.
Be a good role model. Let
your child know that you feel
good about yourself. Also, let her
see that you, too, can make mis-
takes and learn from them.
Transportation
Available to Shop
Transportation services for a
monthly shopping trip are availa-
ble through Gulf County Trans-
portation. On the first Friday of

taged and need to go food shop-
ping, pay bills, etc. Services are

'ON yOUR
FEET'













DR. STEPHEN GROSS
Poodiatristooo
Intense Toe Pain
When a big toe suddenly
turns red, swells up and
becomes exceedingly pain-
ful, the likeliest explanation
is gout. This disorder re-
sults when excessive uric
acid accumulates in the
body and uric acid crystals
are deposited in and
around joints. Very often
this occurs in the big toe,
but sometimes in another
joint. For some, gout re-
sults from a diet that is
heavy in organ meats, but
there are other causes.
Gout affects men in
much greater numbers '
than women. The initial, ex-
tremely painful attack typi-
cally occurs during the
night. The pain is so in-
tense, a person needs no
prompting to see a podia-
trist for relief, Along with
an examination and a medi-
cal history, a laboratory
,test is employed for diagno-
`sis. Fluid from the affected
joint is analyzed for the
presence of tell-tale crystal
deposits. If gout is con-
firmed, medications can be
prescribed to relieve exist-
ing pain and to control the
condition against future
flare-ups. Without early
treatment, repeated gout at-
tacks can permanently
damage a joint.

Board Member

Sought for HRS

HRS District 2's Health and
Human Services Board is looking
for a new imeinber. The nomiina-
lion and selection process to fill a
vacancy, created when a Board
member who was appointed by
the governor as an at-large repre-
sentative recently resigned, is
now underway.
A Health and Human Service
Board was created in the area in
early 1 993 as part of the reorgan-
ization of the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Servic-
es. The Board was established to
increase local control over how
money is targeted and spent to
meet community needs.
The HRS District 2 Board in-
cludes residents from Bay. Gulf,
Franklin, Calhoun. Holmes,
Washington, Gadsden, Jackson,
Liberty. Leon, Jefferson. Wakulla,
Madison and Taylor counties. As
required by law, the Board mem-
bers represent this area's popula-
tion with respect to age, gender.
and ethnic background, and have
demonstrated an interest in meet-
ing the community's health and
human services needs.
Any resident of the 14
counties that have been named
may apply to fill the Board vacan-
cy. Applications will be reviewed
by a committee of persons select-
ed by the chief circuit judges,
school boards, county commis-
sions and governor. The commit-
tee will then recommend .three
candidates to Governor Chiles to
make a selection.
Persons who have previously
applied for Board membership
need not reapply. Applications
should be received by April 4. For
more information on how to apply
for board membership, contact
Imna Brown at (904) 488-0569.

Ranked #3 In State



Sharks Advance To Regionals


The Sharks all took to the
court Saturday night, in the Dis-
trict 3 basketball finals, with
shaved heads, determined to win
the District championship finals.
All the players, except John
Bryant and Jermaine Larry had
the cue-ball look and even they
didn't have much more than a
"five o'clock shadow" covering
their chrome domes.
If the head shaving was de-
signed for speed, it worked!. The
Gladiators indicated from the tip-
off they wanted to run the Sharks
Into the ground, so the Sharks
obliged and proceeded to run the
Gladiators into the ground, steal
the ball from dribblers, intercept
rocket passes cross court and.
poured a deadly salvo at the bas-
ket from three-point territory.
When the smoke cleared the
Sharks had won the District
championship.
The game started off with the
Sharks sinking a two point bas-,-
ket and they never relinquished
the lead the entire game. Even
though Havana made a respecta-
ble game out of the contest in the
first half. The Sharks, using their'
entire team, on a rotation basis,,.
surged ahead with a 26-8 third


quarter to put the game out of
reach of the Gladiators. The
Sharks had a 31-22 lead at half
time and at one time in the game,
had a 30 point lead over the visi-
tors.
Damon Walker led the Shark
scoring with his 14 points-nine
coming from three-point goals.
Des Baxter had 13 and Kendrick
Addison added 10. Brian Davis
led Havana, barely getting into
the double figures, with 10.
Addison added two three-
pointers and Chad Quinn had
one.

PORT ST. JOE, 65
FLORIDA HIGH,. 57
Despite what Coach Vern Ep-


pinette termed "an offense which
wasn't real good", what the crowd
determined was an "overactive
referee" and Florida High's "dead-
eye" three-point shooter from the
2:00 position of the circle, David
Ross, the Sharks prevailed Tues-
day night and advanced a notch
in the state play-offs, with a win
. over Florida High.
The Sharks advanced in state
rankings this week, too, moving
up to the number three position
in state standings.
The 65-57 victory advances
the team to the Regional semifi-
nals against Chipley in the Gulf
Coast Community College gymna-
sium Friday night. Game time
was still unknown at press time..
In Tuesday night's game, the
Sharks may have "been a littlI
off' offensively, according to
Coach Eppinette, but their de-
fense was chugging along on all
five burners. Des Baxter wasn't
exactly loafing on the job, either,
as he "racked up 30 points, to
lead the Shark scoring. Half his
points came from three-point
goals. He made five. Chad .Quinn
and Damon Walker each added
two. Jerel Seamon led the Semi-.
noles with his 21 points.
But the defensive show stars
belonged to Mario and Jermaine
Larry, who continually picked the
Seminoles' pockets and handled
the ball upcourt for the .quick-
moving Sharks.
/ The home team was trailing
by one to three points up ,to half-
'time. As the buzzer approached
four seconds, the Sharks were in-
bounding the ball 'and John;
Bryant took the ball and sped up-
court, out-running both teams,
and nailed a lay-up as the buzzer-
sounded to give the Sharks a
one-point margin at half-time.
.Then, when play resumed,
Des Baxter started the third peri-


od by sinking a three-pointer, to
up the margin to four and the
Sharks were never behind again.

Fast-Pitch Softball Inaugural


The Lady Sharks will have
their inaugural into the ranks of
fast-pitch softball this Saturday
as they host a doubleheader
against Mosley at 2:00 p.m. State-
wide high schools are moving into
the arena of fast-pitch softball,
making the transition from slow
pitch.
Part of the reason for the
switch according to Coach Martin
Adkison, on the collegiate level
fast-pitch is the form of softball


played. Many young girls from
across the state are unable to
take advantage of scholarships on
the university level because of
their unfamiliarity with this form
of the game.
.The Lady Sharks will appre-
ciate the support of the communi-
ty. Plan a trip to the ballpark Sat-
urday afternoon. They play on the
fields located behind the high
school.

THE RULE OF THREE


Any teeth are susceptible to
decay if they meet three condi-
tions. You've got to have bacteria
in your mouth, eat foods with sug-'
ar in them, and have a tooth that's
susceptible to the decay attack.
Unfortunately, these are con-,
ditions that everyone can meet,
Bacteria thrive in the human
mouth. And the bacteria that love
to eat teeth are in ecstasy. Your
mouth is their heaven.
Even if you don't eat candy, a
lot of foods have sugar in them.
And who wants to give up eating
apple pie?
As for susceptible teeth, very
few can withstand the constant
barrage of bacteria that feast on
foods with sugar. Tooth enamel is


the hardest substance, in the hu-
man body. But the bacteria that
feed on teeth create acid. Without
good oral hygiene and regular
dental care, the acid soon breaks
down the enamel, causing cavi-
ties. Unstopped, it soon finds its
way to the tooth's pulp and can
destroy the tooth completely.
Taking good care of your
teeth, with regular dental check-
ups, can change "Rule of Three"
to "Cavity-Free".

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the. office of

Bob Bolduc of Whitehall,
Michigan, was the speaker at Ro-
tary Club Thursday, telling the
club of some of his experiences in
Venezuela. when American firms
went into that country to set up a
workable telephone system just
four years ago.
Bolduc, a retiree from GTE
with phone system operations ex-
pertise, was hired to help with
the organization of the re-
building.
The speaker said the system
in Venezuela was .in pitiful shape
in 1990, when the work begun.
"Their equipment was the same
as was used in the United States
back in the 1920s. There was an
even chance. when you called
someone locally, your call would
never go through. Long distance
was an even greater gamble than
that," the speaker said.
The town where he went to,
which was 30 miles from Cara-
cas, on the other side of the
mountain, had only one tele-
phone-a pay phone-for a town
about the size of Port St. Joe.
"Our goal was to have phone ser-
vice to 2 million additional cus-


tomers within the time limits of
our contract," Bolduc said. 'That
would equate to one telephone for
every 20 people in the country. It
formerly took 25 years to get a
telephone and then over half the,
time it wouldn't work."
'The country of Venezuela is
a beautiful country with a pleas-
ant temperature the year round,"'
he said. "The nation. like most of
those ,in South America, is: ham-
pered by bureaucracy. If the gov-,
ernment owes you money, it
takes several months to get paid
because 18 people has to sign the
check."
'The inflation rate of the na-
tion is about 40q%' per year. An
average worker earns $100 a
month and a decent place to rent
costs $3.000 a month. Health
care is free, but people who can
pay use ,a private system, which
flourishes in the nation, despite
free medical care. Everyone' who
owns a nice home has a concrete
wall around the yard, with brok-
en glass embedded in the top,"
according to the speaker.


was exactly the same as the day
before, except this-time the Ga-
tors ,scored in the final inning to
take the win over Port St. Joe.
David Hysmith scored the
winning run on a bases-loaded
infield hit by Mike Morgan. Hys-
mith was sacrificed .to third by
Pridgeon. Beau Whitfield and Ca-
sey Kelley were both intentionally
walked in the inning, loading the
bases.- Mike Morgan hit a little
dribbler off the bottom of his bat
and Hysmith scored the winning
run when catcher Keith Saleh
couldn't hold onto the ball 'on a
collision at the plate. ,
The Gators took an early
lead, scoring three in the first and.
once more in the second. The Ga-
tors had three men reach safely
on walks and Casey Kelley and
Mike Morgan drove them in. The
single run in the second came
when Adam Ake walked, moved
to third on a single by David Hys-
mith and scored on a single by
Jeremy Pridgeon.


The Sharks rallied in the
sixth, when Adam Taylor led off
with a double, Josh Colbert sin-
gled and Ryan Yeager doubled,
scoring Taylor and Colbert. Brian
Butts singled home' Yeager later,
in the inning.
The Sharks scored another
run in the fourth; The Gators
committed the only error of the
game.
Yeager started for Port St. Joe
but was relieved by Josh Colbert
in the third. Taylor came on in
the seventh. Saleh was behind
the plate. McLemore and Whit-
field went the route for the Ga-
tors.
Gators 310 000 1-56 1
Sharks 000 1030-45 0
WEEK'S SCHEDULE-Dur-
ing the first week of play, the Ga-
tors will travel to Port St. Joe

FIBERGLASS POOLS have been in, production since 1958.

There are many distinct advantages to owning a HAWAIIAN FIBERGLASS


POOL.
1. FIBERGLASS POOLS are the only permanent pools Imade -
Fiberglass gets stronger every year!
A. Fiberglass never deteriorates.
B. Fiberglass is 17 times stronger than concrete (flexible
strength of 54,000 psi) and can flex a full 12 inches .
movement that would destroy a concrete pool.
C. The color is molded in like formica counter tops and
gives a durable finish.
D. Fiberglass pools carry a 35 year warranty against struc-
tural failure.
2. HAWAIIAN FIBERGLASS POOLS never have to be remarcited
like concrete pools.
3. HAWAIIAN FIBERGLASS POOLS have smooth, non-porous
walls that do not harbor resident algae and make cleaning
walls:90% easier. .
A. Less vacuuming time.
B. No marcite to brush.
C. No remarciting (plastering) as in concrete pools (at a
cost of several thousand dollars)
4. HAWAIIAN FIBERGLASS POOLS do not require large amounts
of algacides to combat resident algae, therefore require up
to 2/3 less cost of chemicals.
A. Smooth non porous and non bleed surface not found in


concrete pools.
B. Chlorine level is maintained at 1.0 ppm (parts per mil-
lion) versus 3.0 for concrete pools (a savings of 2/3
with Hawaiian Fiberglass Pools)
C. Fiberglass pools require much less acid. A concrete pool
bleeds alki into water, therefore upsetting chemical bal-
ance and preventing chlorine from doing its job, thus re-
quiring more acid.
5. HAWAIIAN FIBERGLASS POOLS are built in a modern factory
under quality control and supervision.
6. HAWAIIAN FIBERGLASS POOLS are installed quickly with a
minimum of disruption to your home.
A. Faster installation means less damage to backyard since
we manufacture pool under factory controlled conditions
on a precision mold where it is inspected for quality and
not constructed in your backyard.
7. Safety
A. Np more skinned knees, torn or snagged bathing suits.
B. Less chlorine means no hair discoloration or faded bath-
ing suits.
8. Fiberglass pools, may cost a little more, however the advan-
tages will more than pay for the difference, every month,
with lower chemical costs, less maintenance. All this
means more pool pleasure.


*FIBERGLASS POOLS HAVE VIRTUALLY MADE OWNING A POOL A PLEASURE.

Canadian Bagpiper Visits Third
Grade and Plays for Them
Our Canadian visitor, Mr.
Jack Stratman, visited the third
grades on Friday and joined them
for their rendition of the Highland
Games. Complete in Scottish re-
galia. Mr. Stratman, thrilled the
students as he played old' and
new favorites on the bagpipes.
Then' he 'piped' us over to the
football field where the third
grade classes of Linda Tremain
and Linda WVhitfield competed in
putting the shot, relay races,
tossing the cabor, and finally, tug
of war. Wanda Hall said it best as
she was getting on the bus. 'This
has been the best day of my
whole life!" It was pretty special.

Good Behavior Rewarded
209 students (out of 365) received letters of commendation af-
ter the first semester indicating they had no discipline referrals, no
excessive tardies, and no bus discipline referrals for the entire first
semester. They also were awarded a new $1 bill, and their names
were entered into a grand prize drawing. Two high school winners
were drawn, winning $15 and $10. respectively. The two middle
school winners received $10 and $5. Hopefully, student behavior
will continue to Improve and the second semester will see an in-
crease in the number who are eligible to win! The real prize, howev-
er. is the increased learning time made possible by less frequent in-
terruptions.
Report cards are due out March 3-please insist that your stu-
dent hand deliver the report to you. If you insist on better perfo-
mance, they are more likely to deliver.

By Caroline Lister
Has your child been overly
lazy during the four day weekend,
with no interest in leaving the
house to go out at night? All this
laziness is caused by the relief
that six weeks tests are over, af-
ter an abnormally long week for
students. It seemed everyone
agreed that this long week was a
secret test to extend every period
by an hour so to wear every stu-
dent out. Why, you ask? Mr. Tay-
lor and Mr. Wilder like these va-
cations from students as well.
and if the kids are bad during the
4-day weekend, than the parents
wouldn't want to put up with
them.
Not all students have been
sitting around the house flipping
channels-the boys' basketball
team is still practicing all day.
everyday, playing in the state
play-offs, and becoming patrons
to a downtown barber shop. Fri-
day. a bald Shark team defeated
Havana for the district champion-
ship and by the time this article
Is published, the outcome of the
sub-regional game against Florida
High will be known. If you haven't
been to a game this year, now is
your last chance. Not only will
you see an exciting basketball
game with short Kareem Abdul
Jabars, but you will be support;
ing your school and town.
Another athlete is on the road


to state-Jeremy Tull. At Mosley
on Wednesday. Jeremy qualified
for the state weightlifting meet by
pressing 375 pounds and a 290
pound clean-and-jerk:; I'm sure I
could lift that any dayl Other
weightllfters finished either first
or second in the meet. Marcus
Gordon, Troy Williams. Man-
dricka Miller, and Matt Roberson
finished in 2nd place, and Vic
Sellers place 1st with Jeremy
Tull.

A proposed federal Environmental Protection Agency rule for pulp
and papermills could jeopardize plans to clean up Florida's only desig-
nated industrial river, a state environmental official said last week.
Richard Harvey, director of the state Department of Environmental
Protection water division, :said the new "cluster rule" for pulp mills is so
expensive that 'it would probably not be economically feasible to try and
reclassify.the Fenfiolloway River in Taylor County from iridustrial to rec-
reational waters. The state does the reclassification.
Harvey made his statements when he reported on, studies his divi-
sion is making on ways to improve the Fepholloway and nearby ground
water, according to the Perry News Herald. The proposed cluster rule, he
said, would require mills throughout the country to install modifications
to air and water cleaning equipment. Buckeye (the mill at Perry), he said,
has estimated it would exceed $200 million there.
U.S. Rep. Pete Peterson, D-Marianna, said he was against the cluster
rule and had talked with EPA.Secretary Carol Browner about it. 'They do
it all the time...put out rules without any cost estimates or risk assess-
ments on other environmental issues." Peterson said. "It is all win or all
lose with them. They allow no alternative to ideas that are not their own."
.- Harvey said the two-year study has investigated 130 options, in
.cleaning up the mill's discharges into the Fenholloway-including one
that would mean building a new mill at about $300 million, but would
not result in significant improvement to water quality.
The one option that would Aclean up the river is a pipeline, costing
about $40 million, to discharge the waste from the mill to a site near the
Gulf, about 20 miles away.
: 'MORE STATE LAND: Florida Senate and House natural resources
committees last week passed out bills that would assure permanent fi-
nancing for'the state's Preservation 2000 program to buy environmental-,
ly-sensitive land.
The program uses taxes collected from real estate transactions (docu-
mentary stamps), but has been on a year-by-year basis. Since 1991
when the program began. the state has also sold $1.2 billion in bonds to
finance the land buying. The Florida Farm Bureau Federation says gov-
ernment,now owns about 26 percent of the total land in the state with
accelerated plans currently under way to up that to 64 percent.
The Senate bill-authored by Sen. Curt Kiser, R-Palm Bay, who had
the idea-passed unanimously out of the Senate Natural Resources Com-
mittee, but not until Sen. James Hargrett. Jr., D-Tampa1 successfully
tacked on an amendment that would also earmark documentary stamp
i money to buy land for inter-city recreational parks.
The companion house bill passed unanimously, too. "Folks. we devel-
oped a program and it's working. Fighting over funding every year is a
waste of time," said Rep. R.Z. Safley. R-Clearwater, the bill's sponsor,
said." "
ARTIFICIAL REEFS: The Senate Natural Resources Committee
O.K.'d a bill to control the rampant dumping of everything from clunker
cars, refrigerators, and old tires in the Gulf of Mexico along Panhandle
counties from Cape San Bias to the Alabama line to form illegal artificial
reefs to improve commercial and sports fishing.
-The bill, authored by Sen. Rick Dantzler, committee chairman, sets
up.a permitting and inspection system for the private clubs. individuals
and counties to build the reefs and sets fines and penalties for violations.
Another bill that made the location of the artificial sites confidential was
also approved.
CASINOS: Miami Sen. Albert Gutman thinks a proposed amendment
to the constitution to allow casino gambling in major convention cities
will not pass voter muster, but the public would probably stand for his
bill allowing counties to have riverboat gambling when approved in a lo-
cal referendum. Voters turned down casino gambling proposals in 1978
and 1986. Its backers think the mood of the public has changed.
HRS IS OUT of the juvenile justice business, according to lawmakers
in loth houses where bills ai-e pending that would set up a separate de-
partment of juvenile justice or put it under the Department of Correc-"
tions. Jim Towey, secretary of the Department of Health and Rehabilita-
tive Services, says it is "Monticello Fever," referring to the small town east
- of Tallahassee where three youths are being tried for the death of an Eng-
lish tourist at a highway rest stop.
BIG TALK ON CRIME, but no action on taxes, may be the headline
for this election year session of the Florida Legislature, but somehow this
old reporter thinks they're going to do better than that...and that doesn't
mean they're going to just throw money at some half-baked ideas.
The tipoff came. I think, after the special session on workman's com-
penpation when Senate President Pat Thomas. D-Quincy, told members
of qhe conservative James Madison Institute here in Tallahassee they'd
be surprised at how many of his colleagues In the House and Senate
agree with their dislike of "big government and powerful government."
** "It's been a long time coming, but I believe the age of a smaller, more
efficient government is here," Thomas said on the eve of the regular ses-
sion this month.
*'.; Ordinarily, I'd dismiss such talk from the Quincy redhead as just
politics. He is doing his best to erase the liberal taint off Democrats so he
canget enough of them elected to the 20-20 split Senate to make him
President for another two years.
Put Ive ,met'more members, both Republican and Democrats, in
botl houses with the same view. Glory be, perhaps it's true.

Correction of

Star Story
In the story, two weeks ago,
concerning the speaker at the
Chamber of Commerce dinner, it
was reported the speaker's father,
T. J. Sullivan and John Blount
founded the St. Joe Furniture
Company. It has been learned
since that the late B. W. Eells
founded the firm with Blount as
manager, who shortly acquired a
share of the firm and later pur-
chased the entire stock of the
company from the Eells estate.
The Star regrets this error.
