County Begins Negotiations For Prison Site

Sign Letter of Intent With SJT to Provide 911 Service in October


School Board

Stalled On

Rules Change

Designed To Satisfy Flaps

Over Cheerleader Selection
The Gulf County School Board didn't please anybody, when
they couldn't agree to adopt a revised version of their cheerlead-
er selection rules and regulations Tuesday.evening at a regular
session of the Board.
.Superintendent of Schools Walter Wilder had been charged
by the Board to select a committee knowledgeable in such mat-
ters and have them overhaul the selection procedures and re-
quirements for those chosen. The committee selection' was
spurred by a confrontation by black students last year, when a
black girl, failed to be chosen as a cheerleader. School officials
said at the time said it, was'just a fluke in'selection because
blacks are usually included in the: final competition for.the 10
cheerleader positions.
School officials defended last year's choice by claiming no
blacks came out for the position except on the final day or two of
selection and that the final choice was made by an unbiased se-
lection committee from out-of-town. The school didn't even make
the choice. ,
Nevertheless. the schools agreed to take another look at the
selection manner before this year's choice was made and chang- -
es made to mollify the black claim of discrimination.
Wilder presented the final work of the committee Tuesday
evening and defended its content.4 Board member Charlotte
Pierce agreed with Wilder's assessment of the new rules and
urged their adoption. .
Pierce said the document needed to at least be approved by
the Board in the next few days, even.if they had to make amend-
ments later in the school year. "It's time for cheerleader selection
now, so they can reserve spots at state clinics they always at-
tend," she said. 'The deadline for selection Is April 6," she con-
But Board member James Hanlon stood squarely in the path
of approval by objectijg ^to h.eeelilltJ.stneki..J.h!1riLes .
which would prohibit a cheerleader from participating the follow-
Ing year, if she is dismissed from the squad for an accumulation
of infractions serious enough to warrant her dismissal during
the present school year.
Hanlon said he thought that requirement was too stringent
and stubbornly refused to approve, of the set of rules unless it
was changed.
Hanlon's position elicited some conversation from the audi-
ence,' questioning the set of rules and at least one threat to take
the finished product to the Commissioner of Education with the
one making the threat admitting he didn't even know what it
Wilder said he did just as he was told by the Board in select-
ing the committee. 'They spent many hours going over our rules,
studying the rules from at least a half dozen other schools and
coming up with a document which wouldn't favor anybody or
group. They worked hard over this set of rules and I'm sure
they'll be disappointed over the fact you didn't even give it fair
consideration. The ball is now in your court. It's your responsi-
bility to come up with what you think is a workable solution," he
Hanlon said, "I'm willing to adopt the document with that
one change I noted."
"When all the discussion was over, the Board agreed to at
least look at the document and amend it to their satisfaction,
approving or rejecting it at a special ineeting on March 22.
Paul Fitzgerald addressed the board at length, calling their
attention to crowded conditions which he said existed in the sec-
ond and third grade classrooms of Port St. Joe Elementary
School. Fitzgerald claimed the conditions hampered the stu-
dents' ability to learn.
Letters from the teachers pointed out the students were only
together for part of the day and went ,to other activities. They
said they felt it was not necessary to be concerned.

In a special session last
Thursday at noon, the Gulf
County Commission .set machin-
ery in motion to begin negotiating
for property on which to locate a
second state prison in north Gulf
Although the new prison
hasn't officially been announced
as yet by the state of Florida, the
Gulf County Commission is as-
sured enough of Gulfs choice as
the site for the new facility, offi-
cially termed an "annex", that
they are beginning to negotiate
with a land owner adjacent to the
present prison to trade for
enough property on which to lo-
cate the new facility, said to
house some 1400 inmates, mak-
ing it larger than the present pris-
The Commission is negotiat-
ing for property acquisition in
such a manner that will not cost
the county too much of a cash
outlay at this time.
Propertv on which the

present prison sits, was arranged
for in -a swap deal, with the
county getting the pine pulpwood
on the property, which off-set the
costs considerably.
Another state prison located
in the north end of Gulf county
would mean approximately 300
more. jobs for the Wewahitchka
The Commission agreed to is-
sue a letter of intent to St. Joseph
Telecommunications last Thurs-
day, for the local firm to begin
purchasing and installing equip-
ment for Gulfs new enhanced
911 telephone emergency system.
The system is to be installed
and in operation by October -1 of
this year.
The residents of Gulf County
have'been paying 50 per month
on their telephone bills for the
past two and a half years in order
to pay for the system, which must
be totally debt free when it goes
into operation. The payments

have accumulated some $80,000
over the two and a half years, to-
ward the purchase price of ap-
proximately $250,000. State
grants of $120,000 have been re-
ceived in recent days, which have
allowed the county to proceed
with the working agreement.
The agreement with St. Jo-
seph Telecommunications was to
purchase the equipment and the
telephone company would main-
tain, keep current, replace as
necessary, and install the equip-
The main answering station
of 'the system will be in the Gulf
County Sheriffs office. The .ex-
pense of the renovation of the of-
fice to accommodate the 911 fa-
cilities is included in the
$250,000 price tag.
The system will cost approxi-
mately $3,000 per month to
maintain and operate.
The new emergency system

will serve every one of the St. Jo-
seph Telecommunications' tele-
phone installations in the Gulf
County vicinity. It will automati-
cally identify the caller who has
an emergency and give his loca-
tion for the benefit of the emer-
gency teams. All a person will
need to do is pick up a telephone
receiver and dial 911 for immedi-
ate response from the proper ser-
vice. The system will route the
emergency crew to the proper ad-
The County is responsible for
providing an address and name
for every parcel of land inside the
county's borders. This has been
in progress for the past three
years and has been unbelievably
complex. Streets had to be re-
named and names applied where
there were none, property and oc-
cupants identified and kept up to
date for three years. The 911 con-

To Florida's Number One Team
WELL! HOW DOES It feel to have the number one basketball
team in the state of Florida, sleeping in your bedrooms, eating at
your collective tables, walking your streets, attending 'your
schools In short, part of your family?
'Pretty good,. isn't it?
All of you who didn't get to go to Tallahassee Friday after-
noon to witness the Sharks fell the giant and take the champion-
ship from his grasp, truly missed an excellent example of push-
ing just a little harder to accomplish a desired goal-in this case,
the number one spot in Florida basketball.
No doubt everyone in Port St. Joe who has come in contact
with Jermaine Larry, Mario Larry, Kendrick Addison, Barry Ad-
kison, Damien Byrd, Damon Walker, Chad Quinn, Chris Wil-
liams, Des Baxter, John Bryant, Doyle Crosby or Robert Wil-
liams, or coach Verne Eppinette or assistant Steve Maxwell,
have already patted them on the back and offered your congrat-
ulations. You may even have wished an extra congratulatory sal-
utation to Des Baxter for being selected the most valuable player
in the tournament. It was easy to see why he was picked, even
over some stiff opposition. Jermaine Larry may have had .his
hand pumped by you an extra time or two for being selected to
the all-tournament team, along with Baxter.
AND, HOW ABOUT Doyle Crosby, the youngest athlete .on
the team, earning the scholastic award for having the highest
GPA of any athlete at the tournament! His award is especially
gratifying ,to Gulf County Schools and to Doyle Crosby.
If you are one of those in Port St. Joe who have not wished
them the best, following their victory, join with us in congratu-
'lating these young men for their feat. It was a tremendous one
against some tall odds.
: But when you consider .that every team they played, in their
quest for the prize of being first, since Chipley, had at least two
very tall boys playing against them, who knew what to do with a
basketball; none of the teams were made up of primarily sopho-
mores; it was an uphill battle all the way.
WHAT WAS THE secret of their success? It had to*be the
never quit attitude of the team and the way in which they gave
'the game all they had for the full 36 minutes of playing time. If
the opponent had the ball, the Sharks didn't wait on them to
shoot so they could get the ball. If the opponents had the ball,
they worried their opponents to death until the Sharks had it
back! Pestering, stealing, pushing to the limits. And, it paid off!
There was a page in the front of the official program at the
tournament, which best described why the Sharks won all the
marbles. It showed a photograph of a team bench following a
-game. There were cups, towels and all types of litter which re-
flected the tension and anxieties of the game. Underneath were
printed the words: 'The success of any team can be attributed to
the strength of their bench."
The Sharks' bench was STRONG and in the game every min-
ute.. H -

We Wonder, Too!
SEVRYtNE -WE HAVE 'talked to in the past-few days con--
cerning the subject, expressed relief that the Raffields have final-s
ly ,been removed from the U.S. government's list of people to tor-
ment. We suspect the family owned business is also more than a
little bit elated that the matter is all over and settled.
For the past three years, the federal government has suc-
ceeded in making life miserable for those neighbors of ours, and
almost to a man, the people of Port St. Joe didn't like it and
thought it was undeserved.
IT WAS A MYSTERY to most of the people of Port St. Joe
how the government could have attempted to be such good ste-
wards of our tax money in this instance and allowed so many
billions to fall through the cracks in the S&L scandal. Some of
those embezzlers went scot free, causing thousands of people to
lose their savings and the perpetrators suffering little to no con-
Meanwhile, a family which has worked hard for six genera-
tions-and commercial fishing is extra hard work-to build up a
going business only to be zapped by an over-zealous government
agency, has7 cause to wonder about the scheme of things.
GENE RAFFIELD HAS stated in recent days, "I know we
have the best government and the best system n the world. I
wouldn't trade it for anything, but I hope I can live long enough
to quit asking myself why my government would attempt to do
such a thing to me."
We wonder, too.

I have not been keeping up
with the Senator Packwood situa-
tion. I know it concerns sexual
harassment and alcohol prob-
lems. I don't know if he's been of-

facially charged with any wrong
doing or if he's about to be-like I
said, I haven't paid much atten-
tion. But I read the other day that
some court or a judge or someone
had ruled that he would have to
turn over his personal diary to
help them sort through "the
whole affair".

This is not a story on Senator
Packwood. No one in his right,
mind condones that type of be-
havior. But what caught my eye
was that personal diary thing.,
Do you have to turn over
your personal, private thoughts if
they come for you?
Now, Senator Packwood

might have volunteered his diary
in an effort to exonerate himself;
maybe that's the case; I'm not
sure. But if he didn't, if there was
a court mandate or a decree or-
dering him to surrender the
diary, I've got some problems with
Christmas of 1960 Mother
gave both David Mark and I a
diary. It was a little green book
with gold lettering. Mom talked of
how we could record the events of
each day; our secret hopes,
dreams, aspirations; "Boys, I
know you'll look back one day
and treasure your own personal
history." She was excited, "It will
be your thoughts, your ideas,
your words "
The problem was I was in the
eighth grade. I didn't even know
what aspiration meant. I dutifully
wrote In it ofl and on for about a
year or so and' then got too
I remember along about .then
looking over at Millicent Black-
burn in Mrs. Mebane's junior
'high science class and wondering
what' it would be like to kiss a
girl. Not just any girl mind youl I
wasn't about-to kiss Mary E. or
LaRenda or Trudy Sullivan. But
Millicent had such pretty white
teeth. .. Listen folks, that was a
private thought. One that I don't
choose to share with the world.
And I'm wondering today if 1
wrote that thing down in that
diary or not. And is someone, go-
ing to come along .one day and
make me' "cough up" my inner-
most thoughts?
I tell you, it's scary. And it
could be embarrassing. Millicent,
by our Junior year, had gained a
pound or fifty. Her face broke out
in a permanent rash. About the
only thing we could say in Millie's
behalf was she made all of her
own clothes. If the guys ever'
knew that I 'once considered .
they'd still- be calling me on the
phone to hard time me about it.
'Let me give you anqther in-
nermost' though '"along hiose
same lines. Mary"E. Pendleton
chased me from kindergarten on.
She gave me Christmas presents,
sent valentine's cards, she even
tried to kiss me once at recess. I
thought she was an overweight,
green-eyed, hairy, lop-eared mon-
ster. And -I told her so. Many
times! She couldn't play third
base worth a hoot....
Funny thing happened some-
Where in there between our soph-
omore and junior year. Danged if
Mary E. didn't, undergo some
drastic changes. She got those
braces off, let her hair grow long,
shed some weight, or at least re-
distributed what ishe had, and
gosh, what a smile! Mary E. was
beautifully Problem was, she didn't
want to play third anymore. .
She was too busy going steady
with Martin Paschall: Had I been
a jerk or what? And I still remem-
ber that dumb, lost, empty little
puppy dog feeling. Life was up-
side down!

We all gathered at this La Fri-

THE ROOM WAS fixed up


By Wesley Ramsey

just like a restaurant in a high-
class hotel. Music in the back-
ground; flowers on the table;
thick carpet on the floor, and you
couldn't even hear pots and pans
rattling in the kitchen.
This big fellow started into
his spiel again. He told us about
how the students of the Culinary
Arts wanted our meal to .be some-
thing special. He went on and on
about how they made or grew
everything. "Not a can was
opened nor a bottle popped.
Everything," he declared, "was
made from scratch or prepared
from fresh ingredients even
the bread was baked from

I didn't know' whether that
meant we were going to have bis-
cults or "scratch" the top of our
own bread where it got too black
in the oven.

WE HAD A plate at each set-
ting, but no silverware! That was
soon taken care of when a short
little lady.with swept back coal-
black hair had the job of deposit-
ing a fork, spoon or a combina-
tion of both just before we were
served something to eat. They
didn't take a chance on our pick-
ing up the wrong one.

Only one utensil stayed on
the table for the entire meal,
which was served in shifts, and
that was a spoon. It turned 'out to
be the spoon one stirred his cof-
fee with. The coffee was served af-
ter ev'erythlng else was cleared off
the table. Even the crumbs were
removed with a crumb scraper,
yett I told the lady I she didn't
have to worry about them, I
wasn't going to take them home.-
wivth me. .

I. HAD GREAT expectations
for that meal, since the dinner
plate sitting at each place was
about 14. inches across; But,
don't let that fool you. We didn't,:
eat out of that plate. It was' mere-
ly to sit other plates in!
The menu, was printed in
French, but that didn't matter;
we all received the same thing .
The menu said: "Potage,
Bonne Femme" as the first item
on tap :for the evening. Know

what that is? I didn't either, but
what we got to eat was a cup of
potato and onion soupl
Next came "Grilled fresh
shrimp on a bed of wilted spinach
with sauce Beurre Blanc". That
was three [count 'em, three!]
grilled shrimp HIDING in their
bed of spinach, with some clear
'gravy poured on top.
Now, get this Next came
some "Sorbet au Citron". That
could have passed for a table-
spoon of lemon sherbet anywhere
else .'and a baby spoon-to eat
that taste 6f "Sorbet au Citron".
Then came.the main dish, or
dishes, whichever way you want
to look at it. There was either
"Grilled Yellow-fin Tuna with
pineapple and fresh lime salsa" or
."Roasted Loin of Veal au Jus Nat-
ural tourneed carrots with fresh
asparagus", which is what I had.
It looked suspiciously like two
bites of medium.rare steak .with
four steamed asparagus spears
and some carrot-colored spaghet-

They served a "Medley of
fresh garden greens sweet tarra-
gon and basil vinaigrette" which
tasted like the outside leaves of a
head of lettuce covered with some
vinegar, along with a few slices of
mushrooms and a couple hunks
of cheese.
Finally, there came a 'Ter-
rine of Chocolate with Sabayon"
for dessert, which could have
passed for egg custard and choco-
late syrup most anywhere.
my mystique at what I was eating
to mean it wasn't good. It was de-
liciousl I just didn't know what I
was eating until I tasted it. Above
all, the students were top notch.
They did their job well. Nobody
had soup spilled in their lap. The
bread was good, whether the stu-
dents baked it or not!
Who knows, I may quit eating
potato soup altogether and stick
with "Potage Bonne Femme".

A Business Trip
This past week I took a business trip (combined with some
pleasure) to central Florida. I visited my brother and his family in
Orange City, Florida, where we also have a store. Orange City is a
small but crowded town about 25 miles north of Orlando.
I traveled along and below are a few of my observations and
thoughts while driving there and back.
-I bought a radio for my truck because 'it was going to be a
long rip. The radio was on sale for less than $30, but I wound up
paying about $150. by the time I paid for speakers, an adapter kit,
and had it installed. They get us one way or another, don't they?
-1 don't mind traveling alone from time to time, but 325 miles
is too much continuous driving. I played the radio, listened to some
tapes, sang some songs myself, and talked to myself. just a lit-
tle. When I started that, I stopped for a rest.
-There wasn't time to find a variety of tapes when I left. so I
carried my Jerry 'Lee Lewis Greatest Hits set and two recorded by
Willie Nelson. I know know all the words to all the songs on those
tapes. I also made up a few songs myself.
-There's a bar close to Old Town named 'The 'I Ain't Here' Sa-
loon". I've been meaning to stop in and see what goes on there, but
so far I've managed to pass it by. I'm kinda skeptical: There may not
be anyone there
< on -1 was close to a million motorcycle riders the four days I was
on the road and in the Orange City area. More than half of them
were riding Harley Davidsons. They were some pitiful sights; some
of those riders. My brother told me they were all there to attend the
annual "Bike Week" they have each year in Daytona Beach. Most of
the riders I saw were men with long hair and beards, wearing leath-
er jackets and dirty dungarees and black boots. Most looked like
they hadn't had a bath since before Christmas. 1957. I have no de-
sire to attend "'Bike Week". I wonder what they do when they get
there., just stand around and stink, maybe?
-It's a long, boring drive from Perry to Chiefland. And you can't
drive fast because the cops are everywhere.
-There Is an agricultural check-station somewhere down there
that has a sign that says, "All trucks, vans, and pickups exit left." I
didn't stop going or coming and they didn't chase me down. But, I
wasn't carrying no agriculture, either.
-My brother's grandson, Noah, came home from church a few
Sunday back and told his mother he learned something new in
Sunday School. When she asked him what he learned, he replied,
"There are two books in the Bible; the New testicle and the Old tes-
ticle." Noah is four, going on five years old.
-If you think any area around here is getting crowded, you
haven't visited the Orlando-Disney World area yet. There are so
many people down there that I couldn't name or count them all. I
ain't even gonna try!
-On the way back, I stopped at a quick-stop just west of Oca-
la, and they had a lady in there serving breakfast. She was cooking
real eggs, bacon, and toast, but no grits. She gave me a fried potato
log Instead. I had indigestion so bad I thought I was going'to die.
All In all, It was a great trip and I had an enjoyable time while I
was do\vn there. I don't want to take it alone again, however.,

DOT Restricts Parking
'Parking wars" on Monument have raged for several
years and can be matched only by the water rights wars of
the old west. Owners of property along the street have
claimed the parking there is a hazard to driver safety. The
Department of Transportation finally solved that "war" last

Girl Scout Troop 242 would
like to thank the Port St Joe Ma-
SsonicLodge for the dinner they
held for us and also for the U.S.
Flag which they presented to us.
The Flag was flown over the Unit-
ed States capital. It took a lot of
time and effort to prepare this for
us and we wanted to let them
know how much- we appreciate
them doing this for, us; Thank

We have been studying ca-
reers with the girls and we would
like to thank the following people
for letting us come and visit them
and their work place. The Star
Publishing Co., showed us the
press and how it works. Our girls
loved it; The Wewa State Bank,
the girls were extremely im-
pressed wi t he vault and all the
money; Rish and Gibson Attor-
neys at Law, where we learned

some about the legal system, the
wall were filled with books, the
girls didn't know if they could
read quite that many; and Dr.
May's office where we learned
about dental ,care, they thought 7
that germ "bugs" were gross. We
thank you all for taking the time
to show the girls about your pro-
fession and let them know that
they can be anything they want
to be when they grow up. Thank
you, Troop 242.

Sharks Defeat West Palm Beach Cardinal

Newman to Officially Take the Top Spot In Class AA Basketball

The Sharks swarmed over
West Palm Beach Cardinal New-
man's basketball for four tension
packed quarters to win the state
basketball championship for
Class AA Friday afternoon in Tall-
lahassee's Civic Center, after,
spotting their foes a 12-4 lead"
early in the first quarter.
The Sharks played three
games getting to the final contest
and in each game, the opponents
,jumped off to a big lead in the
early going, and in all three
games, the Port St. Joe team
played the same swarm-type de-
fense to stop the other team, cold,
and take the lead, never to relin-
quish it again. Chipley took a big
eleven point lead in the first quar-
ter of the Regional. The same
thing' with Vernon and Union
County. When the same scenario
began in the championship game
with Cardinal Newman, the Port
St. Joe fans just sat back in their
seats, and waited for the tide to

With a little more than three
minutes remaining in the second
quarter, Des Baxter drove in for a
lay-up, giving the Sharks the lead
for the first time in the game; a.
lead they never turned loose the-
remainder of the evening.
The Sharks continued their
swarm tactics, non-stop; keeping
the. -pressure on, the Cardinal
Newman players every' step of the
way, on both ends of the court.
The Sharks used every player on
the bench, utilizing the fresh legs
when they needed them. The tem-
po didn't change. Mario Larry had
seven steals of the basketball
during the game. That was the
kind of swarm defense the Sharks
put up. It was awesome
The larger Cardinal Newman
team was a good, solid, large
team. They had a long distance
shooter in senior Tim McCoobray,
who kept his team In contention
for the last several minutes of the
championship game. But the in-

Baxter and Chad Quinn sealed'

luck Friday afternoon.
Things didn't subside any
during the second quarter, either.
If anything, the Sharks increased
the intensity of their defense and
the deliberateness of their shoot-
ing as they ran up a 31-19 lead
before a desperate Cardinal New-
man began to take measures to
turn the game around, to no
avail. -
By the end of the third quar-
ter, Cardinal Newman had cut
the Shark lead to 45-40, but they
still had those pesky little bees.

stealing basketballs and, surpris-
ingly, controlling the boards at
both ends of the court.
Things began to get close in
the final period, but the Port St.
Joe fans-which were in the Civic
Center in abundance-weren't
overly concerned. They had seen
it before. Fouling to get the ball
back, Cardinal Newman had been
utilizing the three-point effective-
ness of McCoobray to chip away
at the .Shark lead, but the move
fell short. With the score at 63-61

been defended effectively from
making his final treys. earning'
the Sharks a 67-61 state champI-.

Sophomore Des Baxter
walked away with' tournament
honors as most valuable player
and a spot on the all-tournament
team. Jermaine Larry, who had.
played his defensive heart out,

It was the fourth state cham-

since 1981-and the third for
head coach Vern Eppinette. The
Coach said he was very proud of
the tenacity and poise his team
showed in the Civic Center. "No
one expected us to win, being
such a young team, but other

Capitol NewS

By Jack Harper

The Florida Legislature with little fanfare and few headlines took
a tentative step last week in what is called "performance-based budget-
ing,". a gobbledegook term that average folk and most journalists don't
really understand, but means to direct tax dollars to well-managed pro-
grams and cut ineffective ones.
S It's a dramatic departure from the current system. of increased
spending on most programs every year without determining whether they
help the public or carry out the intent of the legislature.
: The new budgeting plan was included in the $38 billion appropria-
Stlons act preliminarily approved in the Hdthse for two pilot agencies, the
Department of Revenue and the Department of Administration. Some op-
position has been reported in the Senate, but mostly among staffers, not
elected officials.
: Bells should be ringing and rockets soaring in the air for taxpayers,
citizens who do business with the state, and clients of state agencies (all
of us, really). A more efficient and competitive state government means
happy days are ahead for everybody, including the bureaucracy which
thinks It may lose some of Its power.
S Performance based budgeting will break down spending by programs
and measure their results to see if they are worth continuing. Now pro-
Sgrams are measured by how much work-load they process, not if they
are doing any good.
The reforms are coming none too soon. Remember the computer fias-
co last year when the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services
(the largest state agency in the world) was costing millions in computer
errors? A Florida State University computer specialist said HRS got Into
that bind because it let the federal government talk it into buying a
bigger computer system than it needed or could manage. That wouldn't
happen in performance-based budgeting and, if it did, it would be quick-
ly detected and corrected.
Learning from pilot programs you try yourself or observe in operation
iri other states before investing the farm on some new idea is part of the
reform package, too.
Listen up, you boot camp enthusiasts
There is a lot of money earmarked in the budget that will be finalized
this week for boot camps to turn wayward youths around. The camps
sound good, something is certainly needed, but there is little history in
them. In fact, the one state boot camp for selected prisoners 14 to 24 op-
erated in Sumter County since 1987 has a poor record.
The House Criminal Justice Committee, headed by Rep. Kelley
Smith, D-Palatka, found the camp was reporting a 74 percent success
rate because only 26 percent of its grads were being reincarcerated. Actu-
ally 66 percent of them were re-arrested (a 44 percent success rate), but
not put back in jail because of plea outs, failure to appear after ball had
been set, or their probation time was extended. Some just took off to oth-
er -states where they were not tracked.
.-There will very probably be a new juvenile justice agency headed,
perhaps, by Circuit Judge Charles McClure of Tallahassee, If legislators
can talk him into accepting the job. McClure, a former marine experi-
enced in Juvenile criminal justice, likes boot camps. He also heads a coa-
lition that supports a one-half cent sales tax for prisons and criminal jus-
tice (including boot camps). instead of the one-percent tax proposed by
Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher.
Many of the decisions on boot camps and follow-up residential pro-
grams stressing education and jobs are being made in the legislature this
week. Both the House and Senate budgets include $613,200 for each of
the state's boot camps operating now in Leon, Manatee, Escambia, and
Pinellas counties, plus brand new facilities in Volusia and Martin
Seven boot camps (counting the one in Sumter operated by the De-
partment of Corrections) seems a little heavy for investments in pilot pro-
grams which don't have a track record. Maybe some early performance-
bdsed budg1ing"Is needed. -
I ROSEWOOD: House and, Senate committees. extended the hearings
In the 1923 Rosewood massacre late last week when the accuracy of a
Legislative report that the governor, the Levy County sheriff, and other
officials allowed a white mob to destroy the tiny black community was
Assistant Attorney General Jim Peters said he has been contacted by
people who claim it didn't happen as the survivors and their descendants
claim and there is no evidence the sheriff and governor knew abut the
impending rampage and did nothing to prevent it.
-A relative of one of the two white men killed at Rosewood will testify
that they were ambushed when they were invited to a black home to pick
up a rape suspect and thus avoid racial trouble, Peters said.
Meanwhile, writer Gary Moore, who uncovered and wrote about the
massacre for two Florida newspapers, has criticized the report and wants
the state to pay him $10,000 to testify at the hearing. Also, professors
hired by the state to research the claims of Rosewood survivors last week
refused to answer some questions at the hearing because they want to do
a book on the incident.
GUN CONTROL legislation is dead, at least for this session, after the
Senate Commerce Committee last week killed the assault weapon bill
and four other measures controlling the sale and possession of firearms.
GAYS WIN. A constitutional amendment that the American Family
Association of Florida wanted to put on the ballot that would ban anti-
discrimination laws for gay and lesbians was rejected by the Supreme
Court. The judges (6-0) did not say the proposed amendment would be
unconstitutional, only that it dealt with more than one subject and was
not;clear enough.
'SEX CONTROL. A House Human Services panel kept a bill alive that
would give bonuses to men and women on welfare to not have children.
$Id0 a month for 10 years for women who would consent to birth con-
trol. A single $500 payment for vasectomies for men. There was a tie vote
on the bill, but panel members decided to bring it back up for considera-
tion again this week.
The Senate Criminal Justice Committee added execution to chemical
castration for onnvicted rapists in a bill passed on a 5-2 vote. Judges
could force second-time convicted rapists to take a drug which reduces
sexual aggression. Third time rapists could get the death penalty.

I It seemed to many Shark fans
that local media was not giving
.the varsity basketball team any
coverage except for an occasional
mention. Throughout this glori-
outis basketball season, the team
has been covered fully by this ar-
ticle and this paper. While other
news media are beginning their
coverage on the basketball team,
the team's coverage continues
In the first game against Un-
ion County High School (colors-
purple & gold), the crowd was an
interesting spectacle to watch.
Said one observer, "It was inter-
esting in the first half to see the
Lake Butler purple and gold jump
up and down, and then see them.
in a stumper and St. Joe's purple
and gold going crazy the rest of
the game." This exuberant crowd
was typical of every game St. Joe
played. Many agreed that no
crowd had spirit like that of the
Sharks. The score of the Shark's
victory over Union County is 78-
57, and the victory over Cardinal
Newman Is 67-61.
Congratulations not only goes
out to the team and Coach Eppin-

Delores Windolf, one of the
counselors from C.A.R.E. (Chemi-

at WES this week doing a drug
program in the third and sixth

how to make the decision not to
use drugs, Mrs. Windolf presents
a straight forward program about
this tough issue. Little children
have the right to .be protected
from drugs.

Barbara Fairchild to Perform

At the First Baptist Church

Barbara Fairchild, 'well-
known country and gospel singer,
is returning to Port St. Joe. She
will be in concert at the First
Baptist Church on Wednesday;
March.23, at 7 p.m.
Fairchild has sung at the
,Grand Old Opry in Nashville, and
in recent years has been a regu-
lar performer in Branson, MO.
She sang last year in the Jim
Stafford Theatre, but will move to
the brand new Charlie Pride com-
plex this upcoming season. In ad-'
dition to her regular schedule.,
she conducts Sunday worship
services that many of the per-,
formers attend.
In the recording field, Barba-
ra has had several Top 40 coun-
try records, including one #1
(Teddy Bear). that was also a
crossover to the pop charts. How-
ever, being a born-again Chris-.
tian, she is much more comforta-'
ble in doing gospel songs, and
has several hits in that field.
Everyone is invited to attend
the concert. Admission is free,'
but an offering will be taken. A
nursery for pre-school children
will be provided.

Jessica did just that. When say-
ing her mealtime prayer, she was,
heard saying, "God is great, God.,
is good, let us aggravate Him for
our food" (instead of 'let us
THANK HIM for our food).
The Ashley Test
When my college-aged daugh-
ter called me the other night and
said, "Mama, I think someone,"
likes me," I Immediately thought
of the profound words that my lit-
tle 4-year old niece in Tennessee.
told me. After her parents were
divorced, she told her mom (my
sister) that she knew what a good
man would be like. Curious, my ,



sister asked her what she meant,
and she said. "Are oo (you) going
to church? Do oo spend time with
oo family? Do oo work?" Then if
the answer is yes to the above,
she said she would say, 'Then oo
a good man." Not, perfect advice,.
but something to think about.
If You Think YourDay Was Bad-
When 5th & 6th grade teach-
er Lori Price went home Monday,
she thought she was about to re-
lax. Within minutes, her pre-
schoolers had poured a gallon of
grease in the floor, broke a lamp,
and then climbed to the top of the
closet and dumped all of it.....

9th Grade Pre-Registration!
This is important-next years ninth graders (94-95) will pre-
register and do their four-year plan Monday and Tuesday nights,
March 14 & 15. A parent must come with their student from 5:30-
7:30 either of these two nights. Advisory personnel will be there to
help plan the four-year program leading to graduation. Please, be'-
sure tgbe.inthecommons of WHS one of these two nights.
March 11, Black Tie of Panama City will host a Prom Fashion
Show first period, where male and female students from WHS will
demonstrate the latest in prom attire available this year.
March 17, class registration for students presently in grades 9-
11 will take place during TAP period.
March 18, an afternoon (6th period) dance for the Jr. High will
be sponsored by Ms. Harpers' Dance team to help raise funds for
summer camp.
i' The all-important CTBS tests are approaching March 22-24,
, and the GTAT (tenth grade assessment tests) are due the middle of
April. All of these tests are very important, with the results being
used a multitude of different ways. Please, encourage your student
to do his or her absolute best when these measurement tests are
The annual Excellence Awards Banquet has tentatively been set
for April 15. Plans this year are for the senior high students to be
honored that night, and then having an Honors night for middle
school students during the month of May. Senior honors are based
on first semester class performance. Middle school classes are year-
long classes, and it was felt that at least five six-week periods would
be a fairer measure of the 7th & 8th grade performance. As always,
attendance and disciplinary problems are considered before a stu-
dent is invited. Parents will be invited to both functions, and every
attempt is being made to keep thekdinner tickets, to as low a cost as
possible! I hope your student will receive an invitation. I wish every
student could receive one!,
It is unfortunate, the number of students we see daily whose
outlook of education mirrors their outlook on life. I know that suc-
cessful schools and teachers are supposed to mobilize students &
motivate them to succeed, and believe me when I say we go to great
lengths to do that. But there are some students that we, have not
been able to reach,. regardless of effort, and these students general-
ly waste time, refusing to make any effort to help themselves and
resisting any effort to improve their situation in school..The old ad-
age "you can lead them to water, but you can't force them to drink"
still applies. How unfortunate that we can't overcome that barrier in
some students, and how unfortunate that we are often judged by
our lack of. success with a few students rather than our success
with the majority of students.

Them Fresh Taters Should Have ,Eyes!

When you, buy a bag of pota-
toes at the supermarket, you may
think you're getting fresh pota-
toes, but you're probably not.
Usually, those potatoes have been
stored for several months before
reaching the grocery shelf. If you
want really fresh 'potatoes, you'll
have to grow your own. However,
if you decide to include potatoes
in your vegetable garden, you
may encounter several problems.
One of those is blind tubers.
Blind tubers are not an un-
common potato production prob-
lem. Let's consider a typical expe-
rience; a Florida gardener planted
Irish -potato seed pieces just as
directed. When, after several dis-
couraging days, there were no
signs of plants emerging, he
scratched into the soil to have a
look at the seed pieces. The piec-
es had sprouted, but the plants
weren't growing the way they
were supposed to. The sprouts
were short-about two or .three
inches long. There was, a small
young tuber at the end of each
one. However, there was no leafy
top growth; only the small, round
tubers, which would never reach
a useful size.
The experience I described re-
sulted from blind tubers, sprout
tubers, or more simply, potatoes
without tops. As I said, it's a fair-

ly common problem in home gar-
dens. throughout North Florida.
We probably would first think
that this problem results from
some kind of plant disease. But,
it isn't caused by fungi, bacteria,
or any kind of parasitic organism.
The problem actually starts in-
side the seed pieces themselves,
and seems to be caused by an ab-
normally. high concentration of
cell sap.
This unusually high amount
of cell sap is brought on by im-
proper storing and handling of
the seed pieces prior to plant-
ing-storing them in a warm,
dark place and removing sprouts.
When seed pieces are stored and
treated in this way, and then
planted in cool dry soil, the blind
tuber condition often results.
Relative to this problem we
have both, good and bad news.
Once you notice the blind tuber'
condition, there's nothing you
can do except start over with new
seed pieces. But, if you save your
own seed, you can avoid the
problem by storing, handling, and

planting the seed pieces properly.
Seed potatoes should be
stored in a cool, dark place-not,
a wann one. This helps prevent
sprouting: However, if the storage
temperature gets too high, and
sprouting does occur, just leave
the sprouts alone--don't remove
Your best bet is to buy fresh
seed pieces at a garden.center.
Then plant the seed quickly in
warm, moist soil-not cool, dry
soil. If you try to raise potatoes by
planting seed pieces cut from
stock potatoes you bought at the
grocery- store, we can, almost
guarantee that you'll see symp-
toms of blind tuber development.
Store potatoes are often treated
with a sprout inhibitor. And, this
treatment can result in the blind
tuber problem.
So, since blind tubers may
result from so many factors, we'll
reemphasize that our best chance
for a good spring potato crop
would be to buy fresh seed pieces
and plant them as soon as possi-
ble in warm, moist soil.

they are only a snapshot of what
he or she knows. Don't, however,
accept excuses for not studying

about various ways of helping
your child feel more confident.
