$4,500 Raised for Terry With BB-Q
Volunteers Help Raise Funds to Pay for Liver Transplant Expenses
Friends, classmates, employees, fellow tradesmen, ac-
quaintances and many, many just plain concerned people of
the Port St. Joe area got together Saturday to put feet their
concern and raised some $4,500 with a chicken barbecue to
help pay the tremendous expense of a recent liver transplant
for their friend, classmate, employer, fellow builder and object
of their concern-Terry Parrish.
The concerned friends recruited Rev. Zedoc Baxter. a
Methodist preacher of considerable barbecue fame to be their
supply officer and organize the cooking process, which began
at 1:30 on a cold morning Saturday.
There was plenty of helplavailable for the preparation of
the barbecue, which continued until around 9:00 Saturday.
The fund-raiser idea was 'hatched in the fertile[?] minds of
school-mates Teedy Nobles and Willie Ramsey about a monthZ,
The group prepared over 1,000 chicken halves for the
meal, which other volunteers sold from the City Park near the
First Union Bank building, 'with serving beginning at 11:00 ,
a.m. By 12:30 the barbecuedchicken had been sold out. ",
It was a perfect day for a barbecue. Even Terry had come A .* l
home from the hospital and had the opportunity to enjoy
some of the chicken. He is recovering well from his ordeal,
even though he is back in the hospital this week for a check-
up and a little "fine tuning". He is expected back home later
The barbecue was a success, helping pay for a liver trans-
plant, which was also apparently a success.
Poll Shows Local People Concerned Over Economy, Crimes
No longer will the people of
Port St. Joe be considered as just
one of the masses, fitting into one
nationwide survey niche or the
other, but the city now has: its
own survey of just what the citi-.
zens consider as their most
pressing need and their most im-
portant attributes; how they rate
some services, such as schools.
Arizona Chemical has com-
piled a survey of what, residents
of Port St. Joe thought were the
most pressing needs of the people
of the community.
Its a surprising revelation.
When plant manager Bill Dun-
ning began to reveal the findings

of the Marketing Research Insti-
tute, which is no slouch at mak-
ing such surveys, to the Rotary
Club last Thursday, the members
sort of went to sleep with their
eyes open. But as Dunning-start-
ed to reveal some of the statistics
the MRI had obtained, those eyes
popped open, people sat .up in
their seats and even. began to
lean forward a little to better hear
what was being said.
The analysis was startling to
the members and revealed some
facts which were contrary to
those generally accepted as gos-
jpel by everyone.
SFor instance; taxes are of
very little concern to most people.
Only four percent of those sur-
veyed were overly concerned
about the tax rate. Nor did health
care particularly concern our citi- ,
zens. Only four percent were con-
cerned about health care, even"
with President Clinton's "cheer
leading" for the subject almost
every day. Apparently, the people
of Port St. Joe think their health
care system is satisfactory.
But the people of Port St. Joe
are really concerned about such
things as the economy and jobs,,
crime and drugs.
A survey of whites show their
main concerns are about the
economy and jobs. A full 25% are
concerned over these matters,
even in the face of reasonable sta-
bility in Port St. Joe. Next comes
concern over crime and drugs at
18%; education, 12%; environ-
ment, 11%; -and politics, 6%.
Bringing up the rear is taxes ,at
The blacks of the community'
have the same concerns, except
at a slightly different percentage.
The whopping majority of blacks
are most concerned about crime
and drugs and its effect on the
community-46% of them. A fifth,
or 20% of blacks are concerned
about the economy and jobs. Ed-
ucation needs concern 6%; health
care 4/"; the environment, '2%
and politics, 2%. .
Women are more concerned
over health care than men. The
survey shows that 7% are con-
cerned while it didn't even make
the list of concerned subjects
with the men.
SAME FOR ALL AGES
The concerns, are the same
for all ages.' Education worries
are greater among white collar
workers and those of child bear-
ing ages, but the subject is virtu-
ally at the same spot on the lad-
der for all ages. Only concerns
over crime and drugs shift places
significantly as those surveyed
grow older. The category of 45.
years and older show 43% of
them worried about crime and
drugs; up from 19% for white col-
lar workers and 23% for younger
blue collar workers.
QUALITY OF LIFE
In a survey concerning "Qual-
ity of life factors" education and
drugs hit the top spot on the
charts, as being the most impor-
tant. Nearly 90% thought educa-
tion had that much to do with the.
quality of life in Port St. Joe and
the same percentage had the
same thoughts about drugs in
the community; even though
drugs were among the highest of
matters of concern.
Over 60% thought the com-
munity was providing adequately
for education and over half
thought the community was do-
ing an adequate job to combat
About 84% thought adequate
medical care was an important
quality of life factor, while about
half thought the community was
providing effective care.

THE GULF COUNTY School Board had just as well quit
pussy-footing around with this cheerleader selection question
and adopt a woi-kable rule and regulation standard to be fol-
lowed and be done with it. You say that's what they are trying to
do? Well, that isn't the way this writer heard it..The way we
heard the proceedings going was that they were seeking a solu-
'tion in which they would allow everyone to have full authority in
deciding rules for selection and guidelines for deportment.
You can't do that, people. You can't have anarchy in decision
making processes. We're sorry to have to say this, but it's true.
w One speaker at the meeting last Tuesday-a white man-
would open the selection to everyone. Just show up on the day
of selection. No training, or no preparation necessary. Isn't this
why we have problems now? Everyone else in the county knows
this won't work, as cheerleading is as much athletic training as
It is anything. Every cheerleader knows that and all aspiring
cheerleaders should be told this.
THE RULES FOR qualification, drawn up by a special com-
mittee, are as unbiased and as preserving of what a cheerleader
should be as any document could be. School Board member Da-
vid Byrd was, a member of that committee and [by his own ad-
mission] never attended a single meeting, or offered his sugges-
tions. Now he opposes the document, even though he doesn't
know what is in it. He may, now, but he didn't at the time he op-
But, that's not the point, here. The point is, that Mr. Byrd
had an elective responsibility to function with the committee. He
apparently wasn't interested enough in defusing this highly vola-
tile subject to at least give the committee the input of his ideas
about how the situation should be handled.
THE SET OF RULES as presented, was taken from the best
of several schools; some with some REAL problems on their cam-
puses. They were fair and non-biased. But from what we heard
Tuesday, we're not talking "fair and unbiased" here. We're talk-
ing, "my way or none at all".
The same goes for the requirements of a cheerleader after
he/she is chosen. Certain modes of activity, training, deport-
mrent, dress, etc., are set out in the document. The proposed
rules say a member can be ejected and not be eligible the follow-
ing year, for certain circumstances [all spelled out] but member
James Hanlon disagrees with that requirement. If 'the member
commits the infractions spelled out in the requirements for be-
havior, we don't need nor want them representing our school.
THE RULES ARE fair, they are unbiased, they aren't weight-
ing one race over another, the selection of the cheerleaders is
done by an out-of-town committee of people familiar with what
to look for. You can't get much more fair than that. If you water
it -down, you begin to be unfair in the matter of selection and
that's what we're trying to get away from, isn't it?
Check The Roots
BILL AND HILLARY should get a grassroots opinion of the
health of the health care system in the United States to get a
more realistic picture of needs, found in the minds of Americans.
It might surprise them.
i We think Port St..Joe:is J.ust.as "grassroots," as any place in
a4merica or maybe a little more so, In Port St. Joe, the people
aren't so concerned over health care as they are in their children
being able to get jobs, for instance. From what we read, the Fed-
eral government is responsible for more and more jobs disap-
pearing every day. because of its requirements and guidelines.
ARIZONA CHEMICAL, IN conjunction with the Chemical
Manufacturers Association, has made an actual survey of real
people, who live in Port St. Joe and Gulf county. They actually'
talked to 300 different people from all walks of life in and around
Pirt St. Joe. And the survey says ....
: ---24% of the people. say the economic climate is of the most
concern to them. Jobs for themselves and their children and an
assurance of continued work in the future.
I -23% are most concerned with crime and drugs in our com-
munrity and America. They're--white and black-more concerned
about the growing threat of drugs in our society and the threat
of crime to their families than about anything except jobs.
-11% are concerned about education and the quality of
knowledge which is being made available to their children; only
half as worried as they are about jobs, but interested in educa-
-9% are concerned about their environment.
But where is health care in this list of items we're concerned
about? Way -down to only 4% being concerned over our health
care system. They must consider there's not much to worry
about there now!

Why the obsession with
shamrocks on St. Pat's Day?
What is a shamrock? It behooves
us to know these things.
IN THE FIRST place, the
Irish .don't particularly care for
the color green, which is com-
monly associated with St. Pat-
rick's Day. St. Patrick's Day and
its observance as we know it,
didn't even originate in Ireland. It
originated with the Irish commu-
nity in Boston, way back in 1737.
The saint had been honored
in Ireland with a religious cere-
nhony in the Catholic Church pre-
viously, but not in,the manner of
parades, wearing of the green,
singing and dancing jigs, etc.
Old Pat wasn't even an Irish-
man, saints preserve us! Here we
are observing an Irish holy day,
commemorating an Irishman,
and the inspiration of the day is
an impostor. He was a Scotsman.
St. Patrick was born at Kilpa-
trick, near Dumbarton, Scotland
in the year, 387. His father was
Calphurnius, a member of a Ro-
man family of high rank. [He
might even have been Italian!]
When he was 16, he was cap-
tured by Irish marauders [out-
laws] and sold as a slave to a
high priest, where he learned to
speak the Celtic language.
Eventually he escaped his
captors and made his way to Ire-
land on an Irish sailing vessel.
ST. PATRICK WAS said to
have been a large man, standing
some 6' 6", a very tall man for his
day. He was also a "hippy", as
well as a zealot for the church. He
bounded about over the country-
side with an animal skin slung
over his shoulder, preaching and
He was the man most credit-
ed with bringing Christianity to
the Irish people. The Irish people
couldn't accept Christianity be-
cause they couldn't accept the
concept of the Trinity, taught by
the Church as being three dis-
tinct persons in one. He is said to
have plucked a shamrock [three-
leaf clover] and used it as an ex-
ample of how three entities could ,
It's strange how still another
observance of a special day has
grown out of the Church. St. Pat-
rick is know most for his work
with the Church and his intro-
duction of Christianity to Ireland.
In the United States it is
known, legend-wise, as a com-
memoration to the one who rid-
ded Ireland of snakes.
St. Patrick is credited with
making the Irish soil poisonous to
snakes; all except one old snake,
which refused to leave. St. Patrick
made a small box and invited this
old snake to get inside. The snake
insisted it wasn't large enough to
hold him; St. Patrick insisted it
was and in order to prove him
wrong, the old snake got inside.
St. Patrick immediately closed the.
lid to the box and tossed if and
'the old snake into the sea.
'THE REAL IRISH-not your
drink green beer on St. Patrick's
day. I can't blame them. Drinking
anything green would make me
turn the same color.
The Irishman, in Ireland,
worships on St. Patrick's day. The
Irishman in America celebrates;
and he's even doing less of that.
Even the New York St. Patrick's
day parade, and the large Irish
colony of Boston, are turning out
in fewer and fewer numbers each
year to celebrate St. Patrick's day.
Before long, it will probably
be left up to non-Irishmen and
non-Catholics to celebrate the
wearing of the green. _
But this probably won't' be
too bad since St. Patrick's day in
America was originated by a
Catholic and a Presbyterian, so
they had help right from the start
at celebrating the day of the
death of this saint, not the birth.
Patrick was born in 387 and died
March 17, 493. Could it 'be the
originators of St. Patrick's day
were celebrating because he was

Why Is Everyone Picking On
Well, not everyone, but a lot of people.
Now that the Winter Olympics are over. I feel free to voice my
opinion on the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan alTair. The remarks
below are my opinions alone and do not reflect the opinions of this
paper or anyone other than myself.
How can some people be so insensitive when it comes to other
people? Did you notice how the newspaper and 'IV people followed
Tonya around, never giving her any "space"? And it started almost
immediately after Nancy was hit with a tire tool or something, an
obvious effort to keep her from competing in the U.S.A. Olympic fi-
nals. Why would anyone suspect Tonya? Was is just because Nancy
was her prime competitor? Or was it because Tonya's bodyguard
looks a little like a young Al Capone?
Then the press had the nerve to start digging into Tonya's past.
It was there that they discovered all the reasons why she "might be
guilty" of some part in the attack on Nancy.
The reports I read stated Tonya came from a broken home and
was abused by her mother. She married early and was again a vic-
tim of abuse by her husband. She had her husband arrested.
dropped the charges, was later reunited with him. and later had a
restraining order against him, and even later was reunited with him
prior to or right after the attack on Nancy. She was just a little con-
fused. I think.
Why would they suspect Tonya. just because her ex-husband
was arrested and they were closer than two peas in a pod? What
were they thinking about?
Another thing was the reported phone call Tonya made to Nan-
cy's room just before the attack. Why. It was probably just a call to
wish her good luck. Just because she asked what room Nancy was
In is no sign she was up to something. Maybe she wanted to go over
and wish heir good luck in person. Surely she didn't call just to find
out what room Nancy was in so the culprits could attack Nancy on
her way to her room.
But, then Tonya Immediately called her ex-husband. They spec-
ulate she called to give him Nancy's room number. What might
have happened was she called to voice her frustration in not being
able to contact Nancy to wish her good luck. She was probably cry-
ing when she might have said. "I just tried to call Nancy Kerrigan to
wish her good luck and she wasn't at the front desk. I'm so
ashamed. I should have called earlier. Oh, boo-hoo, boo-hoo!"
And then she told a little white lie about not knowing anything
about the attack immediately after it happened. Well, who wouldn't,
given the circumstances. Reporters were everywhere and she was
confused because she never thought she would be tied to the at-
tack. She later admitted she had lied, but just a little. All the time
she was still traveling with her ex; that is, until he was arrested and
She may not be guilty,. even though all of those who were ar-
rested, including her ex-husband, have confessed and. said she was
the one who planned the attack. We all know how'some people lie.
Why are all these people being so unfair to Tonya? Why, she
even had to hire a lawyer to go to court to prevent the skating asso-
ciation from meeting to decide if she should be prevented from per-
forming in the Olympics. They were going to sue for a zillion or so.
dollars if she wasn't allowed to perform. And when the poor dear
did perform, she was late and couldn't get her skates on properly.
and, well, it was a pitiful sight!
And now she and her attorney have gone to court again to pre-
vent the skating association from meeting on her status so she can
skate in the world competition in Japan. And the judge ruled in her
Why. I ask you, are all these people picking on thls [pboor girl?
Why. why, why?
Because she's as guilty as sin! THAT'S why!

Corn on The Cob One of Summer's Sweet Delights:
Florida Developed "Florida Staysweet" Hybrid Popular Among Many Home Gardeners
If you ate corn on the cob last
summer, and found that it tasted
especially sweet, you might have
been enjoying an extra-sweet
corn variety that was developed
several years ago by the Universi-
ty of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Science. Al-
though this hybrid, called "Flori-
da Staysweet", has not replaced
standard popular corn varieties,
it has .been gaining increased use
by both commercial growers and
home gardeners. -
As its name, implies, "Florida
Staysweet" corn keeps its sweet
flavor long after it's been harvest-
ed, unlike common sweet corn,
which begins to taste starchy
soon after it's picked. According
to Extension Vegetable Specialist
Jim Stephens of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Ag-
riculture Sciences, the key to this
hybrid's sweetness is in its genet-
A new gene added to "Florida
Staysweet" gives this corn a nine
percent sugar content, compared
to only a three percent sugar con-
tent in regular hybrids. The high-
er sugar content also means that
Roy Lee Carter
"Florida Staysweet" has less
starch in its kernels than regular
hybrids. Obviously, those factors
give the variety a true "staysweet"

your child's entire life. Tests are
.used not only in school but also
in the workplace. They can also
be required for getting jobs, ob-
taining a driver's license; or quali-
fying for a competitive event, hob-
same way as in the past.

In addition to its improved
flavor, "Florida Staysweet" has
shown some resistance to north-
ern leaf blight, a serious fungus
disease of many of the common
sweet corn hybrids.
If you'd like to include "Flori-
da Staysweet" in your backyard
garden this year, you should be
able to obtain the seeds from
your local garden center. The
seeds will be packaged in a mois-
ture proof bag, and they should'
be stored in a cool, dry area. If
the seal is broken, moisture in
the air will cause the seeds to
lose their vitality quite rapidly.
So, a seed bag that has been
opened should be resealed as
soon as possible.
Recommended planting dates
for "Florida Staysweer are from
mid-March to mid-April in North
Since this hybrid has so little
starch in the kernels, its' rate of
germination and degree of seed-
ling vigor may be less than for the
commonly grown sweet corn hy-
brids. To solve this problem, sim-
ply plant extra seed in the row,
by, or recreational activity.
Tests are here to stay. As a
parent, you have the right to
know about the tests your child
.will take. And you can help your
child by understanding what they
attempt to measure and how test
results are used.
Your attitude about tests is
also important. Your child will be
more comfortable taking tests
,and possibly even do better-on,
them if you help him or her to see
tests not as barriers or problems,
It's important to think about
testing as an ongoing part of your
child's education. But tests alone
,'don't give a complete picture of.
your child's knowledge or ability/
to learn. For tests to be used
properly, teachers, ,school, par-
ents, and children need to work,

Congratulations. HAWK terri-

and thin the seedling plants to
the proper spacing.
One precautions Make sure
you keep plantings of "Florida
Staysweet" isolated from any reg-
ular sweet corn you or your
neighbors may be growing by at
least 500 feet of distance. This is
necessary because pollen from
any of the regular sweet corn hy-
brids that falls on "Florida Stays-
weet" silks will cause starchy. un-
sweet kernels on the ears, and
destroy their excellent flavor.
In summary-"Florida Stays-
weet" is an improved sweet corn
hybrid, developed by the Univer-
sily of .Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, which
is gaining popularity with com-
mercial growers and backyard
gardeners alike. It has three
times the sugar content of the
regular corn hybrids, and retains
its sweetness for a much longer
p. 'Period of time after harvest. So, if
, the corn you bite into this sum-
mer tastes particularly sweet,

More Than Money
This election year session of the Florida legislature isn't just about
taxes and prisons. It's about moral values, as in school prayer, parent re-
sponsibility for bad kids, chemical castration or the death .penalty for
rapists, mandated courses on the Holocaust and slavery, and whether to
pay survivors and their families on a claim a black town was destroyed
by a white mob back in 1923.
The Legislative turn to personal values and moral judgements came
to me at the halfway point of this session last week when I realized that I
no longer have to quote my fictitious Uncle Clem Rednek over on' Flat
Creek in Gadsden County to bring some outlandish old fashioned humor
and common sense to an issue of the day in this column.
Why bring up Uncle Clem-who says we should hang one politician
once every four years on the courthouse lawn just as an example-when
you've got Rep. Jim Kerrigan, R-Gulf Breeze, a retired New York cop who
) says John Wayne told him in a dream to lead the fight against gun con-
There is also.Sen. Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee now, but recently
of rural Suwannee County, who says he is proud to be picked as Flori-
da's most conservative legislator and will vote against paying the $7.1
million sought for survivors of Rosewood because the claim is based on
hearsay evidence and can't be proved one way or the other. Williams rep-
resents Levy County, where the incidents described as a massacre in a
House report took place.
It's not only the Archie Bunker boys who are harkening back to fami-
ly values of the good old days. Sen. Robert Wexler, D-Palm Beach, a 33
year old New York-born Jewish lawyer with twosmall children, wants
chastity, self-restraint. and sobriety taught in public schools. He would
require women who give birth to cocaine babies to have a mandatory con-
traceptive implant. Convicted rapists would be chemically castrated after
their second conviction and electrocuted after their third in bills Wexler
Sen. Rick Dantzler, D-Winter Haven, has a bill that would give birth
control bonuses to unwed welfare mothers who would wear a patch. and
Sen. Jim Hargrett, D-Tampa, would give some authority back to parents
in raising their kids by stopping the state from investigating anonymous
complaints of child abuse. He'd require those complaining to give their
names, which could be kept confidential, and he'd give parents the right
to spank their children without fear of government prosecution. "It's not
uncommon for some youngsters to threaten to report their parents for
child- abuse or for warring parents to report an ex-spouse anonymously
to get revenge," Hargrett said.
And if that is not enough, Rep. Randy Mackey, D-Lake City, and Wil-
hlams have identical bills In the House and Senate that would allow stu-
dents in public schools to vote on whether they could say voluntary
prayers. The bill-supported by more than 40 house members including
many blacks-is bitterly opposed by Jewish legislators.
The split between Jews and blacks, who often agree on social issues,
was calmed somewhat last week by the House Education Committee
when it put mandatory school courses on the Holocaust and the black,
experience in the U.S. from slavery to modem times into two separate.
But the inevitable clash and race to the courts to protest if any legis-
lation-is- passed, of course, has not been settled. This old reporter says
it'd b'e'far be ter-and less dlVfsive to give tlitionhtaxk credits so families
could afford to send their children to schools that fit their values.
Something like the G.I. Bill after World War Two, that helped finance
education for returning veterans at the schools of their choice. Then
there would be little need for legal litigation, which experience has shown
us is crippling the school system of the country.
House Speaker Bo Johnson, D-Mllton, said issues of personal values,
morals, and heritage always bring strong emotions. "It does test some of
the boundaries of the reach of government and raises some important is-
sues on the philosophy of government," Johnson said.
NOT DEAD YET: A bill that would allow free delivery shoppers.
which do not carry news in their columns, to qualify for legal advertise-
ments has not died yet in this session of the Legislature. The Senate ver-
sion of the bill was killed two weeks ago when a committee voted to table
it until an interim survey could be made later this year on its impact. The,
companion House bill last week was first voted down by the House Judi-
cial Committee, then was revived so it may be considered again this ses-
,sion at the committee's discretion. As they say in the Legislature, the real,
session starts a day before lawmakers are set to leave town.
SNEWS ROUNDUP: Swallowing a bitter pill of reality, the Florida
House Appropriations Committee late last week voted 31-0 to send its
"own version of a spending cap to the floor this session to head off a
even.stiffer constitutional amendment proposal expected on the Nov. 8
A similar measure is being considered in the Senate.
'There's no question...it will change the way we govern here in Flori-
da," Appropriations Chairman John Long, D-Land O'Lakes, said.
The House proposal would limit the growth in state revenue to the in-
,crease in the average growth in personal income for the previous,five
A'citizens' petition drive called "Enough is Enough" is collecting sig-
natures on constitutional amendment proposal to limit state spending
'to 95% of the Increase in personal Income over the previous five years.
This year the Legislature is debating a record $38-billion budget,
nearly two and one-half times greater than the state budget in 1986. This
is the first year lawmakers and Gov. Lawton Chiles have agreed not to
seek new taxes, in their proposed budgets, depending on a rise. in state
sales taxes and bonding for some prisons which will not have to be in
this year's budget. I
* No new taxes have been proposed so far, although the House Judici-
ary Committee late last week passed 11-10 a bill that would allow school
boards to levy 15 additional cents on every $100 in value on the real es-
tate transfer tax.
LICENSE HIKE? Because this is an election year with a Senate di-
vided along party lines, a House bill that would slap a $15 surcharge on
the present $12 saltwater fishing license isn't likely to pass in this ses-
sion, according to veteran legislators.
The House Natural Resources Committee passed the measure out
last week to compensate commercial fishermen who lost money because
df new restrictions on net fishing. The,Senate has a similar bill setting, a
$25 surcharge, but it hasn't come out of committee yet.
"Salt water licenses are pretty expensive now. You and your wife and
kids go down to the coast, and- it is a pretty big hit," said Senate Presi-
dent Pat Thomas, D-Quincy. "Absolutely absurd," said Sen. Curt Kiser,
SBoth bills hinge on approval of a constitutional amendment restrict-
ing net fishing that has already collected most of the 429,000 required
signatures to get on the Nov. 8 ballot. The petition drive is sponsored by
an organization called Save Our Sealife, which claims commercial netters
are ruining fishing grounds by overfishing.
The bills designed to compensate netters by hiking sport fishing li-
cense fees is supported by the Organized Fishermen of Florida. "It's sim-
ple. If the amendment to ban nets passes, we will have a lot of people in
the state severely hurt," said Rep. Allen Boyd, D-Monticello. : ;
ROSEWOOD: Time is. running out for lawmakers to pass the $7.1
million compensation claim bill by Rep. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee, for
relatives and survivors of a 1923 massacre of blacks by whites in the
small Levy County town. The hearings were to end March 4, but are
scheduled to finish Friday. ,
Amrnett Doctor, head of the Rosewood Advisory Committee, is com-
plaining of delays in the hearings caused by Assistant Attorney General
Jimn Peters, who has Insisted on calling relatives of whites who were at
Rosewood but have since died. Peters said their testimony is needed by
legislators because the relatives of the survivors are relying too much on
hearsay memories and inaccurate newspaper stories of that day.

WHS will give the annual CTBS test on March 22, 23: and 24.
These tests are given each year to provide a measurement of
progress for individuals and for whole classes. Schools use the
scores to adjust a student's program and also to determine whether
or not a particular area of the school's program needs to be more
heavily emphasized. Insist that your student do his or her best!
Fund raising has gotten to be a serious problem-as the squeeze
on school budgets get tighter. It is very rewarding to have certain
groups of parents pitch in to help raise needed dollars for extra-
curricular activities. The WHS Band Boosters have for years raised
considerable sums to bolster the band program. Without their hard
work, the band program would sulTer greatly.
Recently, another group of parents have stepped forward to
raise much needed dollars to benefit the baseball program. Their ef-
forts have provided some much-appreciated uniforms and equip-
ment for this year's program. equipment that will be used for sever-
al years to come. In a small community like Wewahitchka. it is
rewarding to see this kind of support from parents. Thanks go to
these supporters as well as the Band Boosters. and of course to all
the parent groups that each year contribute so much to the success
The girls' softball team, which this year made the switch to fast-
pitch softball with some reservations, has shown real progress. The
team is heavily staffed with eighth graders. bolstered by a couple of
senior high players with experience. So far. behind some excellent
pitching, the Lady Gators are winning-let s hope they can continue
the great season. A couple of seventh graders have also made con-
tributions to our early success.
The annual Academic Banquet, this year to be divided Into sen-
ior high and middle school sections. Is scheduled for April 15 in the
commons. Invitations to award winners will go out soon. and I hope
all parents involved will help us to honor those students that have
been selected for recognition. Middle school honors will be recog-
nized in May (date to be announced).

Student Post Office Helps Students
Develop Reading and Writing
School has become one of hun-
dreds of schools across the na-
tion participating in a program
introduced by the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice to help promote literacy.
Wewahitchka Postmaster Jeff
Lord says this program allows
elementary school students to
use the experience of exchanging
letters through an In-School Post-
al Service to supplement their
regular reading and writing les-
sons. At' the same time, it gives
them a glimpse of the responsibil-
ities and challenges they will face
in the work world.
The Warrior Postal System
(WPS) officially began operation
on February 7. It was coordinated
by Sue McDaniel, fifth grade
teacher. It was set up with the
help of employees from the Wewa-
hitchka Post Office and it func-
tions as. much like an actual
postal operation as possible. It
has its own student postmaster,
letter carriers, and clerks. Coop-,
eration with the local Postal Ser-
vice provides student training as
to responsibilities and challenges
they will face in the work world.
Students designed their own
After completing job applica-
tions, students were selected to
operate the WPS based on the cri-
teria of a) Civil Service test
scores, b) school attendance, c)
discipline records, and d) a per-
sonal interview with school prin-
Card of Thanks-
To all friends and family, the
Lonnie Gray Family would like to
share our appreciation for the
prayers and food during the loss
