Gulf Getting Its Second State Prison

No Official Announcement Yet, But $300,000 Engineering/Design Contract Signed For Newest Facility


Although the Florida Department of Correc-
tions hasn't made any formal announcements
yet, all indications point to the fact that Gulf
County is about to have the second state pris-
on located in its borders, adjacent to the
present Gulf Correctional Institute.
Identified as a "prison annex", the new facil-
ity will occupy a 100 acre tract of land next to
the present installation and will .handle over
1,000 inmates, employing nearly 300 people.
Preble-Rish Engineers, of Port St. Joe, has
signed a $300,000 contract last week with the
prison system to design the $5.5 million project
with instructions to be finished with the design
in early summer. Ralph Rish, a partner in the
firm, says. "We're already working on it. The
state has signed a contract with us and we're


going full steam ahead, right now, on the pro-
ject."
COUNTY PROVIDING PROPERTY
The Gulf County Commission has. been ad-
vised of the amount of land the prison will re- .
quire and was advised by Bud Palmer, assist-'
ant to DOC Secretary Harry Singletary that if
the county wants the prison-along with its
300 jobs-to make the land available by the lat-
ter part of April. The county also had to pur-
chase the property the present prison is occu- .
pying.
The county has been arranging to purchase
the property site for the past month; locating
another plot to purchase and trade to the pro-
posed prison site land owner, W. T. Neal and
Company. The couhity has also been scurrying


around, raising the approximately $140,000
necessary to purchase the property in question.
At Tuesday's meeting, Mayor Ray Dickens of
Wewahitchka, along with Wewahitchka city at-
torney, Robert M. Moore, presented a check to
the Commission in the amount of $20,000 and
offered a pledge of a second $20,000 to be paid
in monthly installments, to be used toward the
purchase.
Hub Norris, manager of Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative allowed the county to take a giant
step toward reaching the purchase goal, when
he also presented a check for $60.000 to the
Commission. Norris explained that GCEC was'
paying the second $20,000 for the City of We-
wahitchka, providing $20,000 from the Cooper-
alive and a third $20,000 from the industrial


development fund of the 14 cooperatives in
their group.
COMMISSION PLEDGES FUNDS
Commissioner Billy Traylor, noting the. con-
tributions to the property purchase funds,
urged the Commission to immediately pledge
the money to make the land purchase, citing
the agreement with the city of Port St. Joe the
night before, as a source of money which could
be used for the purchase. "We're expecting a
contribution from the city of Port St. Joe after
their next meeting, also," Traylor added.
The Commission approved Traylor's motion
unanimously giving chairman Warren Yeager
authority to sign any documents necessary to
complete the transfer from the owner to the
county and from the county to the state.

Port St. Joe and Gulf County built this porting to the incinerator. Port St. Jo
compactor as a co-operative effort in the been using it in recent years as a hi
mid-80's to compact solid waste for trans- point for its solid waste.


City Buys County Share of Compact

SJFP Urges Continued Public Ownership of Facil


The City Commission of Port St. Joe and the
Gulf County Commission hammered out a deal
to sell complete ownership of the solid waste
compactor to Port St. Joe in a workshop ses-
sion Monday evening.
The compactor was built- as a joint project
by the city and the county on Industrial Road
near Port St. Joe and operated for several years
by both political subdivisions.
_Now, the county wants to divest .itself of
ownership of the facility, with a waste collection
firm interested in its ownership.
The city, however, instead of agreeing to the
sale, felt the compactor could be an important
bargaining chip in its own attempts at contract-
ing out solid waste collection and .decided ,to
purchase the installation. "
i In the: negotiation session, Mayor Frank
V Pate also told the County Board. "I don't think
we should bum all our bridges behind us. If we
do, we will be at the mercy of the contractor.
We want to maintain a bargaining chip and
some way of determining our own future. Be-
sides, we may not accept the' bid of any pro-


posed contractor and remain I4n the col
business ourselves."
The city offered the county $50.00
and a 1978 fire truck, valued at $17.5
the full ownership with the stipulate
county could get back into the business
the compactor if. the need ever arises.
County Commission chairman .
Yeager said the county had received app
of $107,000 and $140,000 for the coin]
and an offer of $140,000 from their solid
contractor. But half of any money they r
from the facility would go to the city for i
ownership.
Robert Nedley, president of St. Joe
Products Company advised both Board
his firm would like to. see continued
ownership of the compactor, "So we wi]
greater control over what goes into it. We
need any dangerous pollutants that ne
company's fresh water canal."
The county accepted the city's deal
was to be affirmed at Tuesday night's m
and the transaction made.


And Children i
A courtroom full of residents
from the Methodist Hill area and
nearby sections of Wewahitchka
were united in their opposition to
a zone change which would allow
Installation of a bar and lounge in
the neighborhood.
Residents of the neighbor-
hood were backed up by the We-
-A : wahitchka Chamber of Commerce
president Jim McKnight saying,
"because it would have a negative
impact on the churches, families
and their children that reside in
this area."
Clayvon Turner, a resident of
th e neighborhood, was requesting
the change, "allowing some black
owned business establishments
in the neighborhood and provide
a place for the youth to get in off
the streets."
De has SHERIFF OPPOSES
holding Sheriff Al Harrison popped up
from his seat and said, "I arrested
this man for selling marijuana on
the school grounds. He's under'

dealers."
Turner didn't get his request-
ed change in zoning.
THE PEOPLE SPEAK
Turner's request set off such
a ground swell in opposition to
the activities described. at the
meeting Tuesday night, that he
left when his request was still in
the process of being discussed. It
was so obvious he wasn't going to
get his zone change request and
so obvious he didn't even have a
single, voice in support of his in-
tentions, he left, tbe room.J befre, .
his request was finally decided
upon.
Resident after resident took
the floor to oppose the sale and
use of drugs in the neighborhood.
In recent weeks, nearly 18
people were arrested in one night
by the Gulf County Sheriffs De-
- apartment 'for selling and .buying
crack cocaine in the same neigh-
borhood. Sheriff Al Harrison said,


"It's getting pretty bad whei a
man who has been with my de-
partment for 12, years can be ap-
proached by person after person,
trying to buy drugs!"
The overwhelming message to
come out of the confrontation was
that the people who lived in Meth-
odist Hill were adamant about the
fact that they wanted the Sheriff
and the Police : Department to
continue in their efforts to rid
them of the dope activities.

William J. Rish,Former Legislator, Named to


State Ethics Committee by Senator Thomas


Veteran Port St, Joe attor-
ney and businessman William
J. Rish has been appointed to
the Florida Commission on
Ethics, charged with investi-
gating complaints of unethical
conduct by public officials and
sanctions those it finds in the
wrong.
Rish also served in the
Legislature, representing Gulf
and Calhoun counties from
1970 to 1978, choosing not to
run for re-election for personal
reasons. Rish has.consistently
resisted suggestions that he
get back into public service on
both a state and national level.
The new appointee was
named to the commission by
Senate President Pat Thomas


of Quincy. He will serve out
the remaining term of resigned
Commissioner Steve Zack of
Miami, whose term expired in
July of this year.
Rish told The Star, "I really
didn't go out looking for this
job, but I told my friend Pat
Thomas I would stay on at
least until July and then make
a decision about-the future."
Thomas, who is president
of the Florida Senate this year,
said, "Billy Joe is one of the
finest people I .know. I know
him to be a man of honor and
integrity who will bring his full
commitment to doing the right
thing to the commissionn"
The purpose of the 'Ethics
Commission is to punish un-


William J. Rish


ethical conduct by public offi-
cials. "Its visibility plays an im-
portant role," Rish said,
knowing the Commission can
take action against wrongdo-
ing even when it does not fall
into the legal realm.
The Commission is
charged with dealing fairly
with the public and accused
public servants, alike. "Folks
don't usually want to return to
office those with a bad back-
ground," Rish said.
"Probably the most impor-
tant thing we have to do is
separate the wheat from the
chaff," he continued.
Rish will continue to prac-
tice law here in Port St. Joe, as
well as serve on the board.


Replacing Sidewalk
City Street Department crews were busy this week re-
placing a section of sidewalk adjacent to Long Avenue be-
tween Sixth and Seventh Streets. The sidewalk is probably
the oldest in Port St. Joe and had become broken and un-
even over the years. The section of sidewalk, nearly a half
block long, was dug up and replaced with a new one. In the
photo above, a dragline is being used to remove the old con-
crete walk in chunks.

The Big Lie!

JUST AS FLORIDA IS having the "big sell" beginning, de-
signed to wear down the citizens' resistance to casino gambling;
a study is completed, outlining the true effects on a community
in which a casino is located. So, taking into consideration that
the campaign promoting casino gambling's foothold in Florida is
shifting into high gear, it must not be too early to step up the
tempo of opposition.
Just so you don't draw any erroneous conclusions, The Star
is opposed to casino gambling in the state of Florida. .. even if
it is centered in Miami.
: Scratch the surface of the gilt facade in any state in the un-
tion which allows casino gambling and you will get the true story
... the story of why we are vehemently opposed.
THE STUDY TO which we refer, is one done by a group
headed up by Professor Robert Goodman of the University of
Massachusetts. You read the- results of the study in the newspa-
pers the other day. We're not telling you any deep, dark secret or
something we have just dreamed up. Professor Goodman and
his study group have verified our position and that of many oth-
ers who shudder at the thought of casino gambling coming to
our state.
Of course the 'carrot' of jobs, tourists, tax revenues and busi-
ness growth is held out to the gullible voters in order to get them
to cast their votes in favor of the measure.
First and primarify, casino gambling lines the pockets of
someone who doesn't particularly care whether Florida gets any-
thing out of the deal or not, so long as they reap their profits;
and the profits are considerable for the owners, else they
wouldn't be spending millions in order to sell you the idea.
CASINO GAMBLING WILL take business from the estab-
lished tourist attractions we already have and depend upon. It
will also result in their reducing their work force, thus costing
jobs. Where casinos exist-such as Atlantic City-they have
damaged existing businesses and sparked a crime wave. Don't
we already have enough crime in Florida? We have prisons in,
nearly every county in the state and .still can't build them fast
enough to take care of the criminals; We're talking about creat-
ing an atmosphere which will attract more criminals? .
: People who have been to Gulfport will testify they lost a lot of
money before they realized it, when they visited the casinos
there. What about the poor sucker who can't afford to lose more
than he realizes?
A RESIDENT OF Atlantic City told this editor, personally,
some 15 years ago at a League of Cities meeting,\in private con-
versation, "If Florida ever considers casino gambling you gather
up your forces and fight it with every weapon you can muster. It
ruined Atlantic city; it will ruin your community and your state!"
That testimonial came from a public official, who was supposed
to have his tax dilemma solved by the magic of casino gambling
coming to his city and state.


Empathy Show.n
OUR COMMUNITY SHOWED its concern for a carpenter and
his serious fight with a problem which degenerated his liver to"
the point of uselessness March 12.-The only alternative to a
transplant was death. So, he opted for the transplant, even with
1is huge expense and the effect it will have on his life style. .-
Terry Parrish is just a guy who works extremely hard, minds
lis own business,' and does superb work. The popular builder
was in great demand in and around Port St. Joe and he contin-
ued to satisfy that demand even long after most other men
would have given up and decided to play the part of invalid.
Terry wants to go back to work. He wants to continue to be
useful. That's why he chose the, route he did, in choosing to go
through the considerable pain and inconvenience of having his
transplant.
The procedure took more money than he' ever had in his
young lifetime. You talk tens of thousands of dollars to Terry
and you are talking about a subject completely foreign to him,
insofar as, personal finances are concerned. He didn't know
where he would get the money; even the considerable amount he
would need to come up with himself, over and above what his in-
surance would pay.
SO, HIS FRIENDS JUST took over the job for him. Raising a
sum of cash by giving a chicken barbecue seemed to be the
thing to do. The chicken barbecue only raised $4,500, which is a
Ict of money, but not the kind of money Terry needs.
But the barbecue and the response of the, community to the
project gave Terry something which could not be'purchased with
even $400,500.00! It showed Terry the community was getting,
that liver transplant right along with him and that must be a
completely satisfying feeling.

My thoughts today are with
Weyman C. Wannamaker, Jr., a
great American-and boyhood
friend and idol 6f Lewis Grizzard.
I can Imagine the loss that Wey-
man must feel. If you've ever
spent any time reading over some
of Lewis' columns or one of his
books or listened to one of his
tapes, there's a good chance you


share in Weyman's grief.
Lewis Grizzard was from, and
of, the South.
And he was proud of it. '
Maybe that's why we liked
him so much. He grew up in tiny
Moreland, Georgia. His writing
ability brought him fame and
worldly accruements. He ap-
.peared on the 'Tonight Show"
and "Larry King Live". Shoot, you
can't get much higher than that
-but not many columns would
pass before Lewis would have us
back in Moreland -with Dudley
Stamps, Kathy Sue Loudermilk,
Uncle Grover or his aforemen-
tioned boyhood friend and idol
? ', -,


-30-

Weyman C. Wannamaker, Jr., a
great American.
I'll tell you why I liked him.
He once wrote a story in which he
insisted that Moamar Khaddafl
and former major league pitcher
Joaquin Andujar were the same
person. Preposterous you say!
Listen, you ever look closely into
the eyes of Khaddafl or Andujar?
They both had the same "wild"
look and both were given to doing
things that were irrational, if not
borderline Insane. And, as Lewis
pointed out, 'You never saw them
together."
Only a guy who started out
as a sports writer but had a keen


eye for "what's happening" would
have made that connection. And
only the most skilled of communi-
cators could have pulled the story
off. And he would have us to be-
lieve that all he did at the Univer-
sity of Georgia was attend football
games, mingle with cheerleaders,
and take weekend trips into At-
lanta to harass Georgia Tech fans
and eat at the Varsity Drive Inn.
I'd say he made it to a journalism
class or two!l
I think about his story on the
snake-handling Baptist Churchl
in East Tennessee and near 'bout
split my. sides all over again. I
read his piece on how nobody ac-
tually lived in North Dakota and
scratched my head; He wrote of
Hoot Gibson, Red Ryder, and
Lash LaRue. People that I know.
He was big on golf, loved his
black lab, and listened to country
music. It's not too hard to like a
guy with all that going for him.
He didn't wear socks, but
then, nobody's perfect.
And certainly, he .was not
liked by everyone. If you lived in
New Jersey, wore. black socks
with your multi-colored checked
shorts, and once a year paid good
Yankee money to visit an alligator
farm in North Florida, you proba-
bly never understood one thing
he wrote down. If you believed El-
vis was still alive, he'd hurt your
feelings. And I'm riot absolutely
positive about this one, but if you
happened to belong to a certain
hard-line feminist group, I think
he might have throwed off on you
one time.
Lewis wrote on some subject
matters that I wouldn't touch;
Kitty Dukakis, Jesse Jackson,
and Ted Kennedy come quickly to
mind. But he also wrote of his
third grade teacher who "pushed
hard" and "fussed" and "demand-
ed", but Lewis tempered the story
in such a way that you under-
stood the love and respect each
held for the other. I could relate
to that, and so could a lot of oth-
ers.
Lewis Grizzard had the ability
to connect with his reader. In this
game. that is the game!
He didn't turn out ac[inner
every Urme. He'd bQethe fli-rstto tell
you that he "borr&ved" from oth-
ers from time to time. He admit-
ted that. He wrote four columns a
week, every week. You try that for
awhile. I couldn't do it. I wouldn't
want to do it. And yet. Lewis hit
more times than he missed. He
was "in touch". He had a clue
about what the folks wanted and
he gave it to them.
He didn't compromise. I be-
lieve if he thought of it, he wrote
it down.
I'll tell you something else I
liked, he had great titles: Won't
You Come Home, Bill Bob Badtey;
Don't Sit Under The Grits-.T-ee:
With Anyone Else But Me; Elvis Is
Dead And- I Don't Feel So Good
Myself: Chill Dogs Always Bark At
Night. well,, you get the idea..
Hfs titles are better than a lot of
columnists' stories.
But I don't come today to eu-
logize Lewis Grizzard. That's go-
ing to be done by people. who

AnExperimentalModel; A Prototype; Oneof a Kind; But a Winner!


I'M FEELING SORT of.like
Barney Oldfield, or Jake Offen-
hauser, or one of the other fa-
mous race car builders, here of
late.
Why?
Because I helped build a suc-
cessful race car, that's why. This
car was an A. J./Ramsey special
which I worked on. It was more or
less a prototype, an experimental
car; one of a kind. Sort of a cus-
tom built car.
Most of the work took place
out in my back yard, in my work
shpd. It's called a "work shed" be-
cause of a lack of anything else to
call it. Precious little work goes
on in my work shed. It could
probably be more properly la-
.beled, an escape shed.
But some curious things go
on out in my work shed-
Including building race cars.
I've made buckets, shelves,
magazine racks, tables, cap
racks, squirrel feeders, stools,


t ETAOIN SHRDLU


napkin holders, Christmas trees,
tree stands, ladders. just any
number of things out in my work
shop. Most of all, I've made a big
mess or two or three.
MY LATEST PROJECT, how-
ever, was a race car. Before I go
any farther with this story, let me
tell you, the race car was.a com-
plete success. It won third place
honors and a trophy with the first
model produced and is destined
for the big money on its particu-
lar racing circuit.
I know Rocky Motley of Piggly
Wiggly fame is a big race enthu-
siast and would probably be more


By Wesley Ramsey


than happy to sponsor our model
if he were asked. Rocky will go to
the races at the slightest provoca-
tion, although I have never seen
him at the level our race car is
competing in.
We're in the competition
which lives close to the edge. It's
lock the throttle back and full
.speed ahead when our circuit
takes to the track.
Rocky would understand that
but he wouldn't understand our
shunning Richard Petty as a driv-
er of our race car.
: It's true "Goody's" headache
powders got to him first, but I feel
he would answer to the clarion


call if he were only to know the
type competition we enter.

YOU SEE, I'M talking "Pine-
wood Derby" here. There's no
more interest shown. n any track
than there is in the 30 foot down-
hill drag featured in a "Pinewood
Derby"...The competition is some-
thing fierce!
You ever hear of a "Pinewood
Derby"?
That's ,a highly competitive
type racing which involves a,
number of people just to 'get the
racer built and get the weight of
the car ju-u-u-u-st right!
'You see, grandson A.J. is in-
terested in Pinewood De'rbys. All'
iny other grandsons shunned the
fast' track of, the racing car. They
,. only wanted motorcycles as
did their fathers.
They didn't get them, howev-
er.
Pinewood Derbys, you under-
stand, is the Cub Scout racing
circuit. Cubs are handed a block


of pine wood and told by the Cub,
Scoutmaster to make a race car.
That's where I came in .
and David. and A. J.'s cousin
Erin, she of the colorful paint-,
brush.
That six inch race car was a
family project, with A. J. sitting
on the sidelines telling us just
how it was to be built.

A. J. STARTED ON me to
build his race car three weeks
ago. "Papaw, I need your help," he
said.: "I have to have my racer
built in two weeks and I want one
which will win!"
The little politician knows
how to get a Papaw to help him,
doesn't he? "I want one which will
win." He had just as well offered
me wages
A. J. brought over the pine
block and we set to work. We
fired up the band saw and sawed
the block into a streamlined
shape to make it fast. It was "en-
gineered" for strength and beau-


ty. There wasn't going to be an-
other race car like it in the
competition It was to have long,
sleek lines. Aerodynamics were
given ,full consideration and fig-
ured on my computer down at
the office. We used a "Solitaire"
card game to arrive at the make-
up which would win.
I "MACHINED" THE shape of
the car. David painted the entire
car in one night and Erin decorat-
.ed it with race. symbols. A. J.
said, "It still needs something."
A. J. took the kit out of the
box and lost two wheels, the grill
which was to be fastened to the
car and the directions for putting
such a complicated machine to-
gether.
Finally, the job was done. The
car stood in final spe ndor and 'it
just looked speedy enough to out-
run anything on wheels. We en-
tered the derby and came in
third. That third' place trophy
looks nice on A. J.'s dresser.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THUR!


Purswell Gets Shot At Big Time

Two Recording Companies Set Nashville Interview


SDAY. MARCH 24. 1994


He Was The Salt Of The Earth
Last Monday a week ago, I had to make' a business trip to At-
lanta. I arrived early Monday! evening and left just before- noon on
Tuesday.
On the way back I was about 20 miles south of Atlanta on 1-85
When the hunger pains hit. Shortly thereafter. I saw. the sign that
said, "Moreland Exit". I decided to take the exit and try to find the
Bar-B-Q place that Lewis Grizzard wrote about so often.
I first heard of Lewis Grizzard in the early 1980's. A-friend from
West Point, GA, was visiting Port St. Joe,and read one of my arti-
cles. "Your writing reminds me of Lewis Grizzard," she said. "Who is
Lewis Grizzard?" I asked. I didn't realize, what a compliment she
was paying me at the time. ...
Forty-seven years is a short life for a man with so much talent.
Although I haven't read all 20 of his books; I rarely miss his Mon-
day, Wednesday, and Friday columns. Lewis Grizzard was a talent-,
ed and busy man, maybe too busy. in fact. His death last Sunday,
will leave a literary void that will be hard to fill. .
The article announcing his death stated Lewis was "A fiercely
proud Souherner," and I believe he was. His advice to Northern
people who came to the South and didn't like the way things were
done was, "Hey, Delta's ready when you arel" He took his own ad-
vice when he lived in Chicago: he quit his job and' moved back to
Atlanta and'wrote a book about it: If I Ever Get Back to Georgia, I'm
Gonna Nagl My Feet to the Ground.
During'his short life Lewis wrote 20 books, almost all of them
with unusually long and meaningful titles. He poked fun at Yan-
kees, draft dodgers, and feminists, but he also poked a lot of fun at
the Southern way of life. But more than anyone, he embellished his
own shortcomings, especially his marital'problems and his "red-
neck" heritage. I .
Lewis loved his mother and father without"reservation. His fa-
ther was his hero, although he left Lewis and his mother at an early
age. He was particularly.kind to those less fortunate than he. peo-
ple 'like, waitresses, farmers, and such., Not that all waitresses and
farmers are disadvantaged, but he believed that their positions
commanded more respect than' they' often received.
From his writings, there Were only two; things that. I disagreed
with Lewis on: one was gun control, and I can't remember what the
other one wais.
'.*Don't BendtOver in'the Garden, Granny,
You Know Them Taters Got Eyes.
They Tore OWurMy Heart and Stomped Thai Sucker Flat
S.* Daddy ,Was a Pistol and rm a Son of.a Gun-.
-.* Elvis is Dead And I- Don't Feel So Good Myself ,
*If I Ever Get Back To Georgia,
FIm Gonna Nail My Feet To The Ground. "
With titles like that, you know there's got to be some good read-
ing in those' books. Lewis Grizzard was the "Hank Williams" of the
literary world. in,'my opinion, and I- will miss his writings'each
week.
By the way, I never did find the Bar-B-Q place in Moreland.'

Democrats Gearing Up


For Election Process


The Gulf County Democratic
Executive Committee met on
March 15 and was addressed by
a party chief from Tallahassee,
Jon Ausman. vice chairman of
the state Dein,-cratic organiza-
tion.
Mr. Ausman spoke about the
voting habits of Floridians, both
in Gulf County and the entire
state. He presented a chart show-
ing that although the existence of
politics is present in everyone's
life each day, the political fires
are banked very low until election


time, flare up into an intense
heat until election day, and then
die down again. He said this is
the pattern around the state.
Ausman also said that in
presidential and gubernatorial
elections, Gulf County compares
favorably with the other 66'
counties in voter turn out. In the
governor's race in 1990, Gulf
County ranked 15 in the 67
counties. However, in comparing
Gulf County to the state turn out
in the presidential election of


Biologist Says River


Camps A Problem


Bill Manor, game biologist
with the Apalachicola River basin
gave the Kiwanis Club an over-
view of the wild game population
in the state-owned 28.000 acres
in the lower Apalachicola River
basin Tuesday, giving information
about the state presence in the
popular hunting and fishing area.
The area managed by Manor
and fellow biologist, Carl O'Barr,
stretches from the Apalachicola
tidal basin on the south to above
the Brothers River on the north.
Manor said the state is not
trying to manage the area so
much as it is to protect it and,
take a census of game it contains.
'There are too many creeks,
sloughs and -inlets to manage,"
Manor said.
He said the area Is mainly
populated with small game such
as squirrels, raccoons, coyotes.
gators, water fowl and a few deer
and turkey. 'The deer population
Isn't very numerous in this area
because of periodic flooding. We
haven't discovered much of a tur-
key population, either," he report-,
ed.
Manor said numerous camps
'and house boats along the river
within the state lands are a prob-
lem which has to be addressed.
'The camps are causing us prob-
lems in that they have pollution

1992, Gulf County was below the
state average.
Ausman also addressed the
question of how to get people out
to vote. He said that advertising
in newspapers, radio, and TV is
indispensable, but the old fash-
ioned method of "pressing the
flesh" tops them all in effective-
ness.
In other business, Carl White
reported that he is "testing the
waters" in Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka concerning the launching
of a Young Democrats Club, and
so far It looks favorable; civic
,leaders in both cities stated they
believe such a group would en-
'courage an early acquaintance
with and participation in the
American political process.

The Right to Choose


Consumers strongly believe that they should
have the right to decide who provides their
health care. For example, in a nationwide sur-
vey conducted by the New York research firm of
Perin+Shoen Associates, Inc., 85 percept of con-
sumners said that they wanted to be able to
decide what pharmacy to patronize.
Yet, every day, millions of Americans are
being denied the freedom to choose their own
pharmacy by their health insurance company.

WHO UMITS CHOICE?
Many health insurance companies offer limited
prescription medication coverage. Some poli-
cies will cover only those prescriptions pur-
chased at a network pharmacy. Often, these
networks exclude community retail pharmacists
who offer valuable services such as counseling,
delivery, patient profiles, and continued moni-
toring of your medication use,
Other policies charge different deductibles.
and copayments for the same medications,
depending on where you have the prescription
filled. Many companies also limit the quantity
that you can purchase at your local pharmacy,
and require you to mail away for medications
that you buy in larger quantities. All of these
strategies used by insurers coerce consumers to
choose one pharmacy over another, or to forego


Convenient Drive-Through
Window

their local pharmacy and mail away for their
medications. Unregulated mail order pharma-
cies cannot keep updated patient profiles of the
medicines you are taking, which warn of possi-
ble allergic reactions or drug interactions.
Regular counseling on medication use is impos-
sible, and often mail order prescriptions aren't
delivered promptly or are exposed to harmful
temperature extremes..

WHAT CAN I DO?
If you receive your health insurance through
your employer, tell them how important it is to,
you to have the freedom to choose which phar-
macy you patronize. Explain to them that you
want to be able to choose health care providers
that give you the best care and are most conve-
nient for you.
NARD, the national association represent-
ing independent retail pharmacy, supports free-
dom of choice for all consumers. Choice is a
central principle of President Clinton's health
care reform efforts. But many large insurance
companies and others are doing all they can to
take away that., basic freedom in a reformed
health care system.
As health care reform proceeds, it will be
'critically important for you to stand up for your
right to choose your own health care providers.

Have you ever watched the
way your child chews his food?
Does he chew his food in a
straight up and down motion or is
.the motion "off side"? A child's-
chewing habits are an important
clue to the alignment of his teeth.
If'they are not properly aligned, he
may be compensating for this by
developing chewing habits that
can cause serious 'dental prob-
lems.
Malocclusion, for example, is
the irregular alignment of, teeth
and improper meshing of the teeth
during chewing. This dental prob-
lem may be the result of poor jaw
relationships and improper muscle

comes severe it may cause defor-


Jeremy Tull Signs With


Jacksonville University


The 1994 football season had
a stellar performance from Shark
senior Jereimy Tull. His great sen-
ior year spelled the difference for
the 6-foot-1, 245 pound offensive
and defensive tackle. He recently
signed a full scholarship to Jack-
sonville State University, a Divi-
sion 1-AA power in Alabama. Tull
was selected to the All-Big Bend
Team by the Tallahassee Demo-
crat and was Florida Athletic
Coaches Association district
offensive Player of the Year.
Jacksonville State, a school


of 8,200 students, recruited Tull
as a tight end. They were
impressed with his athletic ability
and speed, 4.9 seconds in the 40-
yard dash, and 27" vertical leap.
He has qualified for the state
weightlifting meet and won the
shotput and discus in several
meets already this spring for the
Shark track team.
According to Sharks coach
Fred Priest, '"Tull didn't have a
great Junior season or start this
year, but toward the end of the
year he was a dominant player.


He was a real sleeper. Anyone
would have been happy to have
him."
Tull plans to work on his
strength and speed this summer,
in preparation for playing for the
Gamecocks, who were national
runner-up last season after win-
ning the Division 1-AA national
crown in 1992. Arkansas State
also was very interested in Tull,
but the distance away from Port
St Joe helped to make his deci-
sion to play for Jacksonville,
which Is closer to home.

Capitol News

Round-Up
By Jack Harper




"It's a good thing that there is still a majority of members in this leg-
islature who are not lawyers," Senate Rules Committee Chairman George
Kirkpatrick, Jr., said last week.
o Kirkpatrick, D-Gainesville, made the comment in the closing minutes
ofa two-hourhearing on whether to recommend to the full Senate the re-
iinstatement of a Hernando County school board member who was sus-
- pRended by Gov. Lawton Chiles for/Sunshine Law violations.
Attorney members on the committee were complaining the case was
poorly presented and would have been thrown out of a regular court.
-."We're just going to have to go ahead and do the best that we can for
the people," said Kirkpatrick, who has a real estate background and a
college degree in psychology.
The same principle applies even more to the Rosewood bill hearings
which ended last week and may go to the floor of the House soon.. Eleven
survivors and 45 descendants are asking for $71 million on a claim that
1923 Gov. Carey Hardee and Levy County sheriff,.officials knew about
and allowed a white massacre of blacks at the long-since abandoned
sawmill town.
w The ranmpage followed a disputed charge by a white woman that she
Swas assaulted by a black man. The evidence hinges on memories handed
down from one generation to another in families and old newspaper re-
ports. At least eight people were killed, and an unknown number of black
residents were scattered.
Very little of the "evidence"-particularly the lack of any corrobora-
tion of the assumption that the governor and the sheriff conspired to let
it happen-would stand up in a regular-court.
: But then,. as Kirkpatrick said, it doesn't have to, stupid; it's the Flori-
da Legislature. "
This old reporter agrees with that and doesn't mind going where an-
gels fear to tread with some honest opinions on the controversial issues. I
think legislators should vote to reinstate (after censuring) the old school
board member, but not pay the $7.1 million claim against the state.
Diane Rowden, of Spring Hill, was singled out by Gov. Chiles for sus-
pension, although the grand jury had recommended another member be
suspended as well and three other board members pleaded no contest to
charges of meeting law violations (talking abut public business in infor-
mal" conversations with each other).
It's apparent on the face of it Chiles was a bit heavy-handed. The
Florida Supreme Court, irian advisory opinion, told him he could sus-
pend but only the Senate could remove a school board member from of-
fice.
That opinion is easy. Why lower the boom on a little novice school
board member when almost every year the senators themselves get in
trouble with the press by attempting to do business behind closed doors
,,.one way or the other? Let's start the enforcement from the top. right up
.here in Tallahassee.
; Incidentally, the swing vote on the.evenly split party-wise select com-
-iAttee that voted 4-2 to recommend reinstating Rowden was a Democrat
lad a lawyer, Sen. Rick Dantzler, Winter Haven.
The decision on the Rosewood bill Is much more difficult, of course.
Most Floridians would gladly pay their share of the $7.1 million they're
asking for in tax money if they thought it would settle anything or bring

But that isn't what it would, do. It would encourage a flood of claims
from other victims- (aren't we all?) of state neglect. How about Indians,
Mormons, Quakers, Jews, Chinese, and all other immigrants?
I'm a descendant of the Wiles family that was almost-wJped out by Ip-

S'h'uldnI't I have some fish-bait money from the state in my retirenmelt

No, a payoff for the Rosewood tragedy can't help but polarize Florida
a little more when we should all be in this together. There will be a movie
made on it. God knows what those Hollywood producers are going to do
to0.our state. Some of the researchers-paid to document the story under
; $75,000 grant from the Florida House-have refused to report all the
in formation they have found because they want to save some for a book.
So just who is going to .profit by this guilt trip down memory lane?
Could it be that all any American really deserves is equal opportunity
and freedom under the law now? That's everyth ing. Isn't it?
CAPITOL NEWS ROUND-UP:
A bill allowing property owners to seek non-court relief when they
feel government rules have damaged the value of their land emerged last
week in the House Judiciary Committee.
Environmentalists opposed it as a step backward from growth man-
4agement. Developers and landowners praised it as correcting an ancient
!wrong.
The measure, backed by the Florida Chamber of Commerce and Flor-
,ida Home Builders, would extend compensation to property owners af-
fected by changes in local.zoning, rather than just environmental regula-
tions, said Department of Community Affairs Secretary Linda Shelley.
It would cause an explosion of litigation against local government,
she said.
.. A proposed compromise.to the bill spearheaded by Rep. Dean Saun-
ders, D-Lakeland, combined bills filed by lawmakers and a study com-
mission picked by Gov. Lawton Chiles which differed on how to pay land-
owners.
The panel's bill that Chiles favors left it to lawmakers to find a source
of funding.
'a The new bill, proposed by Reps. Saunders, Bert Harris, D-Lake Place,
Sand Kenneth Pruitt, R-Port St. Lucie, would use half the money given
Each year to the Florida Communities Trust Fund which receives its
money from state Preservation 2000 environmental bonds.
Saunders, a member of the Property Rights Commission, said he had
the votes to pass a compromise version last week, but it would be wise to
wait for a committee vote on it this week to gain more support for it.
His compromise calls for the landowner to go through a hearing offi-
cer within 45 days after a property owner feels that any development or-
der from a state agency has devalued his land value. ,
The intermediator will hold hearings between the local government
and property owner to determine if the action does affect the value of the
property. If it does, then an adjustment of the government action or com-
pensation up to a $500,000 limit to the land owner could be ordered.
"It is not automatic compensation or 'mitigation for the landowner,
but it is a process through a third party to determine if an action has af-
fected another person's property,." Saunders said-
Another bill by Harris and Pruitt would require compensation to
landowners who could prove their property had been devalued by 40 per-
cent or-require backtrack on government ruling.
SMORALITY TRAIN: A 9-1 Senate committee vote to allow a non-
sectarian voluntary prayer at public school-events if a majority of stu-
dents vote for it led a morality train thundering through the legislature
last week.....
It was followed by unanimous passage of bills in the Senate which
would mandate school courses about the horrors of the holocaust and


moral principles like honesty, chastity and respect for authority. Another
bill was introduced which would have special courses on slavery and Af-
rican-American history.
"I believe this could be the missing link, or spoke in the wheel, to
bring back some morality in our country and start reducing some of this
rampant crime," said Sen. Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee, a sponsor of
the school prayer bill.
. Gov. Lawton Chiles said in a press interview he would not want
someone in school telling his child how to pray, but he refused to dis-
close if he'll veto the bill or not if it passes both houses.
HURRAH: This is what small county officials are saying about a bill
already passed in the Senate and expecting smooth sailing through the
House that requires state agencies to consider the impact its rules that
are often designed for large cities have on them.
A small county was identified., as one with less than 50,000 popula-
tiun. "It allows some leeway in considering requirements on small com-
n4unities that may be necessary in metropolitan areas but not in small
towns and rural areas," said House sponsor Randy Mackey, D-Lake City.


Ornamentals Need Calcium For Growth

Nutrient is Fairly Abundant Throughout Most Florida Landscapes


Usually, when we talk about
woody ornamental and the nu-
trients they need, we emphasize
deficiencies, because most Flori-
da soils are low in many of the
necessary nutrients for good
plant growth. However, at least
one major nutrient is fairly abun-
dant in Florida landscapes. That
nutrient is calcium. "
Scientist have not found cal-
cium deficiency to be a problem
for woody ornamentals growing in
the Florida landscape. Several
factors account for this, including
the presence of calcium com-
pounds in much of our water and
commercial fertilizers. My infor-
mation on calcium was provided
by Extension Horticulture Spe-
cialist Dr. Robert J. Black.
.Calcium is important. to
plants for several reasons. It
functions as a plant nutrient, and
it also indirectly affects soil fertili-
ty. For one thing, calcium helps
maintain the right pH, or acid lev-
el, in the soil around your home.
This is important, because it re-
duces. leaching of ammonia,
phosphorous, and several other.
elements. In addition, keeping the
high pH range in the soil encour-
ages the growth of beneficial soil
organisms,, makes it, easier for
plants to utilize the' element mo-
lybdenum and reduces plant Inju-
ry form toxic elements such as
aluminum and excess copper. Ex-
cess copper may be a problem in
residential developments built on
old citrus groves.
In spite of all its benefits, cal-
cium can cause serious trouble
for your landscape plants. High

calcium levels increase soil pH
beyond the desirable range, mak-
' ing the soil too sweet, or alkaline.
This makes it harder for orna-
mental plants to take up several
other important nutrient ele-
-ments, including iron, manga-
nese, zinc, copper, boron, magne-
sium, potassium, and
phosphorous.
Although there usually is
enough calcium for normal
growth of landscape ornaments,
It is occasionally necessary to add
calcium to very acid soils by lim-
ing. As a rule. you'd only add lime
to your landscape if you had soil
test results showing that the pH

was too low-- too acid.
You may remember from
some of our programs about soil
pH that the'lower the pH ntimber,
the higher the soil acid level. Any-
time you have a soil pH below
'five-point-five or so, the soil acid
level is higher than most land-
scape plants like. To raise the pH
into the desirable range of be-
tween five-point-five and six-
point-five you need to add dal-
cluin to the.soil.
Materials commonly used for
adding calcium include agricultu-
ral limestone, 'hydrated lime, and
dolomite (DOLE-ah-mite). Dolo-
mite contains both .calcium' and
another important element --
magnesium. If you just need to
change the pH level of :your soil,

agricultural limestone is probably
the 'best material to use. Howev-
er, many acid sandy soils in Flori-
da are low in magnesium. In such
cases, dolomite can be used to
raise the pH and supply magne-
sium at the same time.
As we said, the decision to
use these materials should be
based on soil test results. The
'amount you need depends on the
pH of the soil around your
home,...the soil type,...and the
amount of organic matter in the
soil." For further advice on soil
testing, the best pH range for
your particular landscape plants,
and the use of liming materials,

Card of Thanks
I want to thank each an'd eve-
ryone of you who helped raise my
bail for the American Cancer So-
ciety this year. Because of your
generous contributions, I by-
passed the goal that I had set.
There were twenty-two of us
out there working 'for a very
worthwhile cause, and I deeply
appreciate all of you who donated
so freely.
Though I was the winner in
dollars and cents ($1,931.00), the
American Cancer Society is the
real winner. There are many in
Gulf County who will benefit.
Many thanks to everyone!
Look out-I'll be back next year!
Oletha Bowers .
