At It Again!
THE MARINE FISHERIES Commission is interfering in our
business again. First, it was attempting to save the mullet by se-
verely limiting the days we were allowed to catch them; next it
was an attempt to take away our fishing nets [again, so we
couldn't catch fish], next, it was placing an unreasonable limit
on oureredfish, a size limit on our snapper and speckled trout
[when anyone who has ever caught one knows they die when
they are caught, so why toss the under-sized ones back?]
Now the same regulators without a very good track record at
saving anything, are attempting to slap a moratorium on our bay
scallops. They're aiming in the proper direction to stop any har-
vest-the sports fisherman-but they're still using tactics which
are too heavy-handed.
FIRST OFF, WE believe the Marine Fisheries Commission
has out-lived its usefulness. They have become, a stiff-necked
bureaucratic organization with a reputation of slapping punitive
rules on a certain group of people without first studying the
whole picture. Who's going to be hurt by the rules? How deep
will this "hurt" go in affecting their lives? How necessary is their
'From information we have received or read about the need
for a year of moratorium in the harvest of scallops, the MFC is
uncertain whether or not this will even make any difference in
the scallop population.
Scallops are a migrating type shell fish. They are here today
and gone tomorrow. This particular situation has never been
mentioned in any of the MFC's information.
SCALLOPS ARE REPORTED to have disappeared in Tampa
Bay and points south. All we have read about Tampa Bay tells
us-that everything else has disappeared from that Bay also. The
pollution has been reported as the reason. So, we should do
without an important attraction to tourists, just because scal-
lops-and everything else-has disappeared from Tampa Bay.
Get real, people!
THE HOMOSEXUALS AND lesbians are up in arms because
th&eFlorida Citrus Commission has chosen Rush Limbaugh to be
a huckster for Florida orange juice. He's getting a million bucks
to sell Florida orange juice. They don't like it because Rush.
makes no bones about his disapproval of special rights for them.
We emphasize the word special.
The Citrus Commission has done a good bit. of research, we"
would think, before they spent that kind of money advertising-
with anyone! We can't for the life of us figure why they didn't
choose The Star as an effective means of advertising that favorite
of-Floridians, but we can't help but believe'they figured they
*were going to get more than $1 million worth of benefits. In oth-
er words, they were thinking about selling more orange juice;
not appeasing homosexuals and lesbians.
ACTUALLY, WITHOUT TRYING to sound like a prejudiced
old editor, we' think maybe if -they didn't choose Limbaugh, just
because he was opposed to homosexuals and lesbians receiving
extraordinary' benefits and rights, we might change our morning
beverage to pineapple juice, tomato juice, apple juice. or any-
thing buit orange juice. Heavens! One never knows! We might
even switch to drinking coffee, rather than orange juice!
You see folks, the world isn't going to change pace to your
style of living. Let's be honest about it. You're different and the
rest of the world thinks your way of doing things is, well, queer!
Why don't you change to our style? There's more of us than
there is of you.
IN LAST WEEK'S ISSUE theeditorial on "Rewarding Medioc-
rity" took the proposed 'increase in mail rates as a slap in the
face considering the caliber mail service we are, receiving. This

not Isolated, case of'poor service upon which to base our argu-

We had a piece of advertising material to be included in The
Star this week, coming from Fort Myers. Since the firm didn't
have an account with us, we opted for payment before the adver-
tisement was run. The firm readily agreed and mailed us -a
check, post-marked February 14. We received the check, from
Fort Myers, on February 24-10 days later. In our opinion, the
check should not have arrived later than February 17. Do you

Enough on A] and Tipper and
all their friends, let's get on to the
mail system. My relationship with
the U.S. Post Office began early
in life. Mr. Bill Thompson would
drive his car all the 'way out to
our house to stick the new Sears
and Roebuck catalog in our mail-
box. I was way too young to know
what "resident" meant but I con-
sidered it to be the first piece of
mail I ever received. Me and Leon
and David Mark would look at it
for hours. We'd start with the
toys, move through the shirts and
jackets.. listen, they had three
pages of nothing but bicycles! We
played this silly game-Leon
would turn to a page, "W1hat is
your favorite thing on this page?"

out, "I'll take the Roy Rogers

Ho-Hum Winter Olympics Turn Into Viewing Blockbuster
I WONDER HOW many peo-
ple watched TV Wednesday night,
long enough to see both Tonya
and Nancy skate?
Tonya hit the ice [literally]
about 9:00 p.m. and Nancy didn't
come on until nearly 10:45. All
the 'space in between was taken
up by other skaters; skil-ers,
commercials and more commer-
cials. What I'm wondering is; how
many would have been watching
and continued watching if Ton-
hadn't negotiated to have Nancy's
legs broken, to worldwide -free ad-
CIS was becoming the laugh-
ing stock of the TV industry, for
having poured so much money
and so much air time into con-
tracting to air the winter olympics
from a place called Lillehammer,
Norway. From what I read, CBS
was stuck with a white elephant
back last fall when things started
happening to make us all think
Now, it appears as if CBS has
come out smelling like a rose.
NANCY LIVED UP TO her
hype by skating a beautiful pro-
gram and she had the marks to
prove it. She was nearly flawless
in her presentation and didn't fall
Actually, I'm just jealous of
ice skaters' grace.
I tried ice skating when I was
a kid, on Lew Ferris' frozen pond .
. down at the edge of his cotton
field without benefit of skates.
We would just get a running start
and hit the ice sliding. Momma
didn't like for us to skate in this
manner because it wore the soles
off our shoes and there was no
money in the late 1930's for new
ones ... or even half soles.
Back then, you could buy a
shoe repair kit: two rubber soles,
a roughener, and a tube of glue,
included in a package.
The soles didn't usually fit,
the tool included to rough up the
old shoe before you applied the
rubber sole usually wouldn't get
the shoe rough enough and the
glue wasn't exactly super glue. It
was a miracle if it would hold.
To top that all off, you
couldn't slide on ice with rubber
soles on the bottom of your
shoes. So, -if you had the money
to buy the half sole kit, kids
would usually tear them off so
they could slide on the ice.
TONYA FELL A COUPLE of
times while attempting to do
something called a "double axle",
while she was warming up. She
nearly,fell in her presentation.
SI can relate to that. It's easy
to fall on ice. I can attest with ex-
perience to that.
Our elementary school sat on
a slight knoll in Shamrock, Okla-
homa, and on mornings when it
was, freezing and the water was
still running [which,it seldom was
on icy mornings] we would wet
the sidewalk in front of the school
and ice skate some more.
. There was more ice "falling"
than there was ice "skating".
The same thing always
seemed to happen, downtown on
the corner in front of the post of-
fice. They always had water rtifi-
ning across the sidewalk when it
You could bust your butt and

WHEN I LIVED where it
snowed and froze, I always want-
ed a pair of ice skates and a sled
that operated. As I said, the soles
of those old brogans we always
got each winter to keep our feet
from freezing, had to double as
Somehow or other, we came
up With a factory-made sled. It
was miracle enough that we
should obtain anything which
wasn't home-made, but we had
The only problem was that it
had a steel cap on only one wood-
en runner. Did you ever try to go
sledding on a .sled with only one
steel runner? The bare wooden
runner freezes in place and the
steel covered one wants to go.
WE HAD OUR "luge" too; or
rather our version of the "luge". It
happened to be a piece of old
rusty tin roofing. Bob sleds were
just something to dream about.
I don't miss our version of the
winter olympics at all. Nor do we
miss the winter activities. After
one snowball, the cloth Red Ryder
gloves with the fringe on the cuffs
would be soaking wet. Sodden
cloth gloves covering your hands;
or a pair of pants, soaking wet
from the snow; or frozen feet from
walking in the snow, don't add up
to much fun.
Katerina Witt did a perfect
presentation of her skating rou-
tine and was my favorite of them
all. But she was conditioned for
the cold activity from being
reared behind the Iron Curtain,
during the cold war and experi-
enced those Communist winters.
Now, that's cold weather! !

High School Senior Tria
This year niarks my youngest son's last year in high school.
When he graduates, it will be the last one for us until our grand-
daughter comes of age. I hope we have learned them something.
; As always, the senior class has a "senior trip" planned this
year. I don't know where the seniors have traveled to in the past,
but this year's seniors have a good one planned for this year: They
are going to'Cancun, Mexico, and will be there for about a week.
In addition to the senior trip, the seniors will be treated to a
party the night of graduation. It's an all-night affair called "Project
Graduation", and it is a very worthwhile endeavor. The party will be
garnished with the finest foods, live music, and comedy, and lots of
The object of this party is to keep the graduating seniors off the
sauce and the streets on this most dangerous night. This party
costs the parents, friends, and merchants thousands of dollars, but
it is well worth it if it saves just one life, and I'm certain it has saved
many since its inception.
And that's not all. Each year the seniors are treated to a trip to
Walt Disney World. Usually they leave one day, stay up all night at
Disney World and return the next day. The seniors call it a fun trip
but the teachers who go with them call it sheer torture.
Add to all of the above the thousands of dollars in scholarships
that are awarded at graduation each year, and the graduating sen-
iors have much to be thankful for.
Things were a mite different in June, 1957, when I was a senior
at Tate High School in Gonzalez, Florida. Oh, we had a senior trip,
too, but that was it There were no scholastic scholarships and no
Project Graduation and very few prizes. But let me tell you about
our senior trip.
Early one morning, about 6:00 a.mI, we were herded into a
long, yellow school bus and set sail for a place that was barely out
of the county: We went to Marianna, Florida. Yes, dear hearts, we
didl And I can't remember what we did all day long, but we stayed
I do remember going through the caverns and caves and eating
lunch in a park, but I have no idea what we did the rest of the day.
It was that kind of trip..
; The only reason I remember going at all is I was dating Ernes-
tine Joiner at the time and we got to sit beside each other on the
way back and it was dark and we kissed two or three time. Well, we
kissed all the wayback and my lips were chapped for two days after
That was our senior trip-
But the Port St Joe seniors are going to Mexico; actually going
out of the country and will be gone a .week. And they will have their
party and go to Disney World and get all those prizes. I wish I were
a member of the class.
But I'm not a member, thank goodness. I'm glad they get all the
trips and prizes arind I hope they have a wonderful time in Mexico. I
just hope my son doesn't get "lip-locked" on the payback. It's a
long way and he may never whistle again.

Had the plant been attached to

would have been lovely. As It was,
they charged us with wrongful
-use of 1the money because some
was spent .onthe plant",, he con-
"Even the government ad-
nmits, there was no money miss-
ing. They admit it was all spent
on the plant." he said.
The large freezer, which was
the crux of the whole unfortunate
affair, was deeded to Gulf
County, an actor in this drama,
due to the fact they were the
caretakers of some $600.000 be-
ing managed by Apalachee Re-
gional Planning Council.
The County ownership of the
freezer was accepted by Gulf
County, which Immediately
leased the building back to Raf-
field on a, five-year lease/
purchase agreement. The lease
payments over the five year peri-
od will be placed back into a fund'
to be loaned to dther firms in the
Gulf County area, for the purpose
of creating jobs through expan-
sion of existing or new firms.
A RELIEF -
"It's really a relief to have It
all behind us," Raffield said. "It's
taught us a lesson, never to bor-
row money from the government.
We'll do without things we need
in the future before we'll do it
"Now, all we have to worry
about is growing fishing regula-
tions designed to curtail our ac-
tivities and the product we pro-
duce. We're going to keep
improving on our value added op-.
eration as a source of revenue. If
we have to, we'll import the raw
product for that operation. That's
a shame, too, when we can pro-
duce it all in this area with no.
trouble at all," Raffield said.
"It seems as if the federal and
state governments are both trying
to stifle the commercial fishing in-
dustry while the foreign seafood
producers are laughing.-all- the
way to the bank. The proposed
net law will do away with 95% of
the commercial fishing activity in
Florida. That would be a disaster
for both Florida and the commer-
cial fishermen." the veteran sea-
food producer said.

"Florida-Bred" Tomatoes For Garden
Now that the Spring 1994

are arriving at street addresses
all over Florida on a daily basis,
gardeners are faced with the
problem (actually it is fun) of.
making selections for the scarcest
commodities in their garden -
space. Since the favorite item is
still the tomato, some special
help for choosing what kinds of
tomatoes get the space this year
S Most gardeners buy trans-
plants at garden supply centers
so are somewhat "locked" by what
varieties are available:at planting
time. However, probably 15-25%
start 'from seeds purchased thru
catalogs or seed racks. Now is the
time for these latter gardeners to
buy seeds, either to. sow right
away in seed-beds/seeding ,con-
tainers,or to have on hand at the
proper sowing time.
SBecause Florida Is such an
Important state,in the commercial-
production of tomatoes (crop val-
ued at over $700 million in 1991-
92 season), there have been many

Des Baxter, playing with four
fouls to his credit, scored seven of
'eight free throws and a three-
point goal with three seconds re-
maining in the basketball game,
Friday night, to gain the Sharks a
hard-fought victory over the Chi-
pley Tigers in the Regional 2A
semi-finals in the Gulf Coast Col-
lege Billy Harrison Health Center.
Baxter had sat out most of
the third quarter, in foul trouble
:and when Mario Larry picked his
fourth penalty at the beginning of
the fourth quarter, came back in
to the game to take his place. In
the final three minutes of the
game and the Sharks sporting
their biggest lead of either team
in the game, seven points, Chi-
pley began a game plan of fouling
as soon as the Sharks would in-
bound the ball.
The Sharks countered with
inbounding the ball to Baxter,
who made foul shot after foul
shot to mntain the Shark lead.
But Chipley was chipping away
the Sharks' lead by countering
As the game drew down to
the final 51 seconds, Chipley took
a slim lead with a Demetrius Da-
vis lay-up and a jumper on which
he drew a foul. That put the Ti-
gers up 51-50 with 19 seconds
left in the game. Another Chipley
foul shot and the Tigers had a
two point lead with five seconds
After a time-out to get the
ball to mid-court, Baxter took the
ball on the inbound pass from
Mario Larry and went to the top
of the key, where he leapt and
shot over the out-stretched arms
of three Chipley defenders to sink
the winning three-point goal.
At press time Wednes-
day the Sharks were play-
ing in the "Final Four" of
Class AA competition in the
Civic Center in Tallahassee.

In the first half, it was Dam-
on Walker who had kept the
Sharks in the running with his
three-pointers-four in the game-
-as the taller Chipley team com-
pletely denied the Sharks the lux-
ury of a lay-up.
There was never a time in the
game when one of the teams had
more than a six point lead, except
in the final period.
Walker paced the Sharks, on
his long-distance shooting, net-
ting 18 precious points for the
Sharks. Baxter, who logged a lot
of bench time due to foul trouble,
still collected 15 points, seven of
them coming in the final period
off foul shots, in the final period.
Chad Quinn added 12 points, in-
cluding his two treys.
Chipley was taller and more
dominating than, the Sharks, but
they didn't have the Larry broth-
ers, Jermaine and Mario, playing
defense for their side. It was the
quick, slick, ball hawking defense
which won the game for the
Sharks, as it has so many close
games this season.

TH1 E SHTAR.PORT ST .TJOBP. THURSDAY. MA.RCH3.1994
By Jack Harper
They're at it eternally. Free delivery shoppers who don't even pretend
:to carry news in their columns want to qualify for legal advertisements
and notices in bills in the Florida House and Senate which are apparent-
ly dead for this year at least.
Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week called for an
interim study on the proposed legislation before taking a vote on it and
relayed that request to Senate President Pat Thomas. The house bill was
not on the calendar for committee action last week.
What's surprising to this old reporter is the support the bills seem to
have from legislators. Nineteen sponsors are listed on the Senate bill, 27
- on the companion bill in the House.
It's a complicated subject, folks, but it boils down to whether you
Want to keep your local newspaper--especially the small town weekly-
alive and kicking for your tights.
Since colonial days (those exciting times when early Americans were
putting their lives on the line to get the freedoms we have today), there
has been a sort of love-hate relationship between the public, the press,
business and political leaders and, yes, lawyers.
Like Ben Franklin said, they decided back then that if they didn't
stick together they'd hang. separately. That i why when Peter Zenger
went on trial before, the Star Chamber for criticizing the British-
* appointed governor of Massachusetts that the best lawyers from all over
the colonies came to New York to argue for him for free.
Old Peter didn't even write the stuff (his wife- did anonymously), but
it appeared in his weekly Journal, I was told in my journalism class.. The
principal of the truth as a defense against libel was set in that trial. Be-'
fore, all the, Star Chamber lawyers had to prove was that the statements
ridiculing the government were made. It didn't matter of they were true
That trial sort of cemented a unique bond between the American peo-
ple and newspapers that has continued to this day. It couldn't have have,
of course, if Peter had been publishing a free-delivery shopper with ad-
vertising:and no news or editorial content. You can bet and put it in the
bank that as long as the American people feel their local newspaper will
-take up their cause if it is a just one that bond still exists. I believe it
Both bills-SB666 and HB723-take away the historical requirement
that in order to qualify for legal advertisements and notices, a publica-
tion must have a paid circulation and devote at least 25 percent of its
space to public information. If a newspaper meets that requirement and
is published at least once a week for a year, it can -qualify for a second
class mailing permit with the U.S. Post Office.
Our government for years has followed this policy. Florida law, since
1931, has tracked it.
But almost every year, shoppers try to break into the legal advertis-
ing business with proposed legislation. They may do it someday if the
public, politicians, and newspapers are lulled to sleep.
Many people don't understand the love-hate relationship between the
press and government. Newspaper reporters are the worst critics and
best friends of politicians and government, believe it or not.
An example? I was in the small North Florida town of Gretna last
month, keeping my hand in by covering a council meeting for three week-
ly newspapers. The meeting lasted to near midnight. The council was un-
able to decide on a new town manager and needed to get a legal adver-
tisement in one of the papers that week to get more applicants. I waited
until the town attorney worded the legal ad. then dropped it off at the
designated paper in the county on my way home to Tallahassee.
No "freebie" shopper would have provided that service.
The above is the human side on why shoppers shouldn't-be allowed
into the legal advertising business.
The Florida Press Association.has some more practical reasons in the
brief their lawyers prepared to oppose the bills. Their points include:
-Shoppers do not have audited circulation. There is no accountabili-
ty for delivery.
-Shopper readership is focused on commercial advertising and not
issues of public concern.
-Shoppers come and go and few preserve publication for extended
JUVENILE BOOT CAMPS: The most popular answer to rising juve-
nile crime-the boot camp-may have more problems than the public has
been- led to believe, according to a survey of Florida's only state boot
camp operated by the Department of Corrections since 1987 in Sumter
Mainly, because the boot camp there for prisoners under 24 has
been reporting a 26 percent success rate on grounds that only 26 per-
cent of its graduates 1987-1992) were re-incarcerated into the prison
Actually, according to House Corrections Committee analyst Abayomi
Adejokun, 66 percent of the graduates were re-arrested, but didn't show
up in the re-incarcerated rates because of pleas outs, failure to appear
after bail has been set, or extensions of their probation time.
The re-arrest rate was taken from a study of Florida Department of
Law Enforcement records made by the committee on 209 randomly se-
lected graduates of the boot camp over a five-year period. "It is a much
more accurate measure of the camp's success than the re-incarcerated
rate," said Rep. Kelley Smith, D-Palatka, chairman of the House Correc-
The study has resulted in a bill calling for extending the minimum
length of time in boot camp to at least 120 days and providing a new ba-
sic training program, new assessment procedures on substance abuse
and educational needs, and a follow-up community residential and alter-
native post-relief programs. Re-arrest rates are also to be included as one
of the assessment tools to determine the effectiveness of the camp.
Seeking a $1.7 million appropriation, the bill is scheduled to go be-
fore the full House Corrections Committee this week.
The community-residential program established by the bill, would be
located at the. existing site of the DOC's Probation and Restitution Center
at Tallahassee. Money appropriated from general revenue would be used
to purchase additional land at the site and expand the existing facility by
NOT A RIGHT: Early releases to make room for incoming prisoners
are not a right, the Florida Supreme Court said last week. 'The state has
a more than sufficient reason to revoke the credits leading to early re-
lease because of its need to protect society," the high court said in the
The ruling doesn't effect gain time given to prisoners to reward them
for good behavior. The Legislature last year decided to do away with auto-
matic early release to free space for new inmates.
SALARY FREEZE: No pay raises for legislators next year according
to a roll-call vote by the House Appropriation Committee. The irony of it
was that members voted the amendment down in a voice vote, then re-
versed the decision when the vote was taken by a roll call, putting each
member on records. Legislators haven't had a raise since 1990.
"Go" Players Invited to Compete
On St. George's Island March 19
Dr. Stephen Gross, the podia-
trist in Eastpoint, is inviting all
Go players in Florida and neigh-
boring states to join him for a Go
competition at noon, EST, on Sat-
urday, March 19 at the St.
George Inn on St. George Island.
1 The Forgotten Coast Theatre
of Apalachicola in association
with innkeeper Barbara Vail is
sponsoring the event..
Go is Japan's most popular
board game which originated in
China as Wei'ch'i- as early as
2356 B.C. The game for two
players was brought to Japan
around 500 A.D.
A territorial game, 181 black
and 180 white counters ("go-
ishi")-smooth, flat, round stones
about the diameter of US pen-
nies-are strategically placed on a
wooden board ruled with 19 verti-
cal and, 19, horizontal lines. Ac-
cording to Dr.. Gross, who is
sometimes called the "Go master
of Franklin County", there are
361 intersections of the board.
Players try to conquer territory by
enclosing vacant, points with
boundaries made of their own
Dr. Gross claims that the
rules of the game may be learned
by a child in about 10 minutes.
The competition is open to
children and adults who are expe-
rienced or merely interested in
this popular, Oriental game.
There are not entry fees.

Fast-pitch softball makes its debut in Wewa March 3 at 3:30

The weightlifters have started, placing 3rd behind Bay High and
PSJ. Future meets are at Rutherford (March 2) and at PSJ (March

bigger schools. One of our lifters, Dave Davis, has already qualified
for the state meet. Others are sure to follow

She manages to make very good grades. Maybe you should check
with your student's teachers to see if assignments are being done
and ,turned in-the next time your student says "Naw, we didn't
have any homework!"
Special note! There will be a Financial Aid Workshop Tuesday,
March 8, at WHS at 6:30 pI.m. Parents and interested students
