"It smells, It is noisy and it is
dusty," John P. Hays, Jr., said of
a project currently' n progress by
Sunbelt Resources, Inc., of Ala-
bama.
Hays led a delegation from
the Avenue A neighborhood, near
the project, In making his com-
plaint to the City Commission
Tuesday night. Hays, Era Boule
and Dorothy Daniels each said
the project was causing them
problems with health as well as
creating a miserable situation in
their homes.
Sunbelt is burning the dirt in
and around the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad depot, to rid it.
of a three-quarter century of ac-
cumulated oil and contaminants
on orders of the Department of
Environmental Services of Flori-
da. The DES has ordered the dirt
be sent through an asphalt fur-
nace-like machine and the con-
taminants burned ouL
PEOPLE DISTURBED
Hays told the Commission
the-operation had filled the near-
by homes with dust and fumes.
"The Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road [who Sunbelt is working fori
has-told us they will clean up the
homes and property, but mean-
while, we're suffering from odors
and constant noise," he said.
Hayes said they had contact-
ed DES which came Monday and
inspected the site.
Mayor Frank Pate informed
Hayes the City Commission had
no authority to do anything, since
the ANRR is in an industrial
- zone_. "But; if you -have-oUtfled
DES. you went to the proper
source to get something done if it
is causing a nuisance. They or-
dered the work be done in the
first place," he said. "I have been
told they only have about a week
to gb on the project," he added.
Hays said Sunbelt had in-
stalled sprinklers in an attempt
to keep down the dust, but said
they weren't settling it all.
The Commission said they
would write DES a letter outlining
the complaints and. send it imme-
diately. 'That may give you a little
relief," Mayor Pate said. 'That is
really all we have the power to
do."
: Hays and his delegation
seemed satisfied with that at-
Stempt. and asked that a copy of

GARBAGE SCHEDULE
The City is switching its gar-
bage collection service over to
only one route serving the com-
plete city. In the past, the service
has operated two collection com-
pactors on two routes. The move
is being made to. save the expense
,of operating one of the trucks and
manning it with a second crew.
Under. the new collection
plan, which is to take effect the
middle of May, the collection var-
ies some In portions of the City,
with pick-up days changed.
Under the new routing of the
single truck operation the north-
emr portion of the city will be col-
lected on Monday and Tuesday,
with the southern portion receiv-
ing pick-up service Thursday and
Friday.
Commercial pick-up service
schedules will remain the same.
Frank Healy. public works
superintendent, said he would
have a schedule ready, along with
maps to outline collection routes
ready for publication In The Star
next week.
APPROVE PURCHASE
The Commission approved an
agreement with Gulf County to
purchase the jointly-owned com-
pactor on Industrial Road. The
county agreed to sell their share
of the facility to the city for
$50,000 cash and a used fire
truck, which has been appraised
at $17,500. The county will use
the flre truck In one of its rural
stations.

agreed to pay the county half of
any revenues they may receive in
the future from the facility over
and above $115,000.

Find Another Way

AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS of soul searching, trying to ar-
rive at a decision as to whether or not we should personally sup-
port the national medical program as an idea which would do
the people of the nation the most.good, we have definitely ar-
rived at the conclusion that we cannot support it in any manner.
Universal medicine and the government regulations it would
bring about is simply not in the best interest of all concerned-
even the government-according to what we see and what we
have read on the subject.
In the first place, we believe the large percentage of our na-
tion's people have access to what is undoubtedly the finest medi-
cal care which can be obtained in all the world, no matter where
you go. People from every nation on this globe presently come to
the United States -of America with their hopeless medical cases,
hoping for a miracle from this top-notch medical service. There
is a valid reason for this.
CHANGING THE SYSTEM might possibly. make the service
better. There is enough doubt that this could happen that we're
not willing to risk it. There is enough "maybe's" and "might's"
about the financing and operation of this very important service
to our people that we don't want to take a gamble on it. Once the
medical community of this nation has been changed, it will re-
main that way for a long, long time. If it won't work, it'll be too
late.
We don't think it will work.
THERE IS NOBODY IN this nation denied medical attention
of any sort, if they need it. Granted, the cost is 'high, but at least
you can get it. If the system is changed as drastically as Presi-
dent Clinton and his supporters want, we may be able to afford
it, but will it be available on demand any longer?
The main ingredient which is absent from our present medi-
cal system is a lack of medical insurance by about .10% of the
nation's people. The largest number of those are without simply
because they don't want to spend the money for the coverage
when they aren't sick.
Coverage isn't available for a small minority and these, are
the ones who need the. attention. But, we don't need the system
wrecked for the vast majority to provide medical coverage for the
small minority.
Find another way, guys.



Relax, White City
THE WHITE CITY water system construction project is a
fine example of what can happen to our medical system if it is
tampered with. The White City water system installation is way.
behind schedule and the people are worried they might not be
getting the quality system their money paid for. This is a com-
mon occurrence when such a project is built or operated by the
low bidder. The low bidder is the low bidder for some reason.
Of course, one has to do something to keep from being taken
advantage of by unscrupulous people, who would skin you good
if they had the opportunity.
In this instance, the people of White City have the County
Commission-one of whom lives in White City-taking care of
their interests. But,' suffice it to say that in such instances .i
public board can have its hailds full coping with -people yh.sage '
determined to make up for their low bids somewhere. .;
WE THINK THE PEOPLE of White City are getting a good
deal. .one which will serve the community for years to come. In
such a small community, it's kind of hard to get by with any
shenanigans, even if-someone wanted to. In this instance, we
don't think Lhat is the case and the people of that community
have nothing to worry about.
But, it's a prime example of how things can slip by with us
staring right at them.
The contractor at White City has just lapsed into taking his
time. The Qounty Commissioln will see that he doesn't abuse the
practice without it costing him money.
But, if that were a heart transplant, say, or a hip replace-
ment, or even treating your child for a broken arm or leg; would
you be delighted with leaving the task to the lowest bidder, one
designated by the government, or would you want to make your
own choice of who did the job? No matter what the cost!
WE MANAGE TO GET ourselves tangled up in a mess at
times because of the tendency of hiring the low bidder to per-
form tasks.for us. Personally, we had rather select the craftsman
we want and trust to look after our interests.
When it comes to matters of health-and a water system can
reasonably fit that category-we want a man we explicitly trust
to slice our belly open in a surgical procedure. If we don't know
the man, but have him designated by some government official,
how do we know he is deserving of our faith?


I heard about that lady over
in Arkansas who invested a thou-
sand dollars in cattle futures-
and got back A HUNDRED.
THOUSAND 'DOLLARS! Son of a
gunl Cattle! I couldn't hardly be-.
lieve my ears! I'm thinking seri-
ously about riding over there
right now and asking her how she
did it. Listen. I know cattle fu- ..
tures. I know the ins and outs,
the ups and downs. I never be-
lieved anyone could manage that
kind of profit banking on cattle.
As a matter of fact, that's the
most money by far I've ever
"heard tell of' being made in the
risky and unsure cattle business.
I still can't fathom how she did it!
And like I said, I know and un-
derstand the game.
You see, me and cattle fu-
tures go way back.

unker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


[heir Numbers Are the Same


day in the first grade feeling
about as low as you could get.
Although no one had said any-
thing about my hand-me-down
shoes that were two sizes too big,
I know everyone noticed. : "Dad,
I need a new pair of shoes."
"Son, I'm going to sell a
couple of cows come late
September. You hold on 'til,
then-we'll buy you the finest
shoes .... "
Early in life, I was banking on
the future of two lop-eared old
cows. I mostly kept my feet under
the desk and waited for
September. It was ,a long wait.
Both of those cows came down
with the worst case of pink-eye
I've ever seen. Doctor Holmes had
to come out twice and work on,
'em. Doc was not really a veteri-
narian, we didn't have, one of
those, but after he'd fixed all the
people down at his clinic, he'd
come out and help you with your
animals in an emergency, ,
The Tri-County Stockyards
frowned on you bringing in cows
with pink-eye. We had to carry
those two through another win-
ter. Instead of getting about six


hundred dollars a piece for
them-we put another two hun-
dred of hay and medicine Into
'em.
One of those cows died of old
age before we could sell her and
by the third grade it didn't matter
anyway-I 'had grown into those
shoes.
You want to talk about cattle
futures with. me, drag up a chair.
My dad tried 'em all. We had
Black Angus, Brahmas,
Charolais, Herefords, Polled
Herefords, .and several In be-
tween. We always kept a milk cow
or two around, usually asHolstein'
or a Jersey. We .even, had a
Ayrshire once. Dad sure : was
proud of her. But I never thought
she gave much milk and she was
mean as all get-out. She kicked
half the stall down one fine ,winter
morning and Dad sold her soon
afterwards-for less than. he
paid for her.
SLitlde League was Just around
the corner. My old, Revelation
glove had a hole in .the pocket.
"Kes,' I know'you need a new.
glove. The market's down right
now, let's give it a few /weeks.


We're going to sell off all our
brown cows .
I believe it was Anthrax that
summer., Or maybe Foot-and-
Mouth disease. Anyway, they all
got sick. Doctor Holmes was mak-
ing more money on our cattle
than we were. My older brother
got to explaining that we'd be bet-
ter off if one died.,"Kes, we'll skin
It out, tan the hide, get us some
cotton for stuffing and we'll make
our own gloves." Lebn had abdut
"give up" on cattle futures.
I think part of. the problem
was most everyone,, around us
also raised a few head of cattle.
They'd all drop calves, inn the
spring, feed 'em up right on clo-
ver and bunch grass all summer
and '"sell down" their herd in the
fall so they wouldn't have to feed
.'em through the winter. Most
everybody was buying at the
same time and selling at the
same time. I didn't know didley
about 'supply' and demand and
cash flow and controllable and
.uncontrollable market 'factors-
but I did know that if we went to

More Government Notices; We Must Enlarge Our Facilities


I HEARD A hammering out
in the back shop the other day,
which disturbed my. very fragile
skein of unaccustomed thought.
It wasn't light hammering, either.
It was the Fram! Bang! Crash!
type of hammering; almost like a
sledge hammer;
I tried to ignore it but it
wouldn't go away. You know how
it is with unaccustomed noise.
There's not supposed to be any
hammering going on around
those presses, either. You 'treat
them delicately. So, I could stand
it, no longer. I had to find out
what was going on in the- back
shop, bad enough to get up from
my spot, slaving over a hot com-
puter and sashay to the back to
find out for myself what the prob-
lem was.
Well, what I found was Willie
nailing up another, government
notice which all our employees
are duty-bound to read in order
to find out just what their rights


ETAOIN SHRDLU

are.
Around here, they know what
their rights are. Their rights are
to o anything they want to ex-
cept drink the last Diet Dr. Pep-
per out of the refrigerator.
That's minel

I MADE AN immediate deci-
sion with my observation. It was
a decision which can't be put off
any longer. There's a definite
need.
I decided we needed an addi-
tion to the rest room in the back
shop. The' evidence is there. We
can do without it no longer. A


rest room is a necessity, that's
true, but a larger rest room isn't
exactly a luxury. In this case, it's
also a necessity!
You see, Willie was nailing
that government notice, under
demand that we display it in a,,
prominent place for all to see, on
top of another notice which was
under orders to be prominently
displayed.
Here in The Star that promi-
nent place where our government
notices are nailed up is on the
rest room wall.
There's notices from Work-
man's Compensation, Social Se-
curity, Sexual Harassment,


OSHA, Employees Rights, Toxic
'Substances, Job Safety and a
host of others.
The rest room wall is too
small to accommodate all these.
notices.
Thus the crying need, verily,
the emergency need for an' expan-
sion of the rest room in the press
room here at The Star..
I HAVE SURVEYED the mat-
ter and find that if we move the
Employee Safety poster. off the
east wall and extend in that di-
rection, the addition will allow for
the poster to be replaced and
have room for one or two more.
Some of the notices are yel-
lowed with age, but we don't dare,
remove them "under penalty of
law", it says. I wouldn't want to
be placed under the ,penalty of
the law. I would surely get. 10
years -in prison, for tearing down
one of those notices. Of course, if
it were a robbery offense, with a
gun, I cduld count on getting by


with maybe a maximum of three
years.
No sense tempting fate.
THE REAL REASON we're
going to enlarge the rest room is
to get more room to nail govern-
ment posters on the wall, which
must be displayed.
I suppose we could just nail
the-posters and notices up some-
where else but there's' no place on
the premises ,where we can guar-
antee every person -who works
here will pass by and see them.
The only spot- which would be
more conspicuous is on- the wall
inside the rest room, opposite the
commode. We have pretty much
.of, a 'captive 'audience in there
with .not much else to do except
read the posters.
That would take an expan-
sion program, also, to come up
with enough inside wall to attach
the notices.
We could put some notices
inside and some outside, but that


would crowd out the magazine
rack and the stack of newspa-
pers.
I WANT MY EMPLOYEES to
be well informed of what's availa-
ble to them and .know what their
rights are. So does the govern-
ment-both state and national-
which is the incentive to enlarge
the rest room. '
I wonder how other business
places handle this ticklish sub-.
ject? Are they having to enlarge
their rest room, too, or was it
large enough already?
We removed the bath tub
from the rest room several years
ago so there would be, more room
inside. That settled that need to
provide more space, but I'm not
sure I could remove anything
else, just to make more poster
room.
I still wouldn't have enough
room and besides,. it wouldn't be
a rest room then, it would be a
broom closet.

Nickolas Under The Knife Again

Undergoes Procedure To Relieve Pressure and Proceed On Into Adulthood


No Sympathy In Singapore
Michael Fay, 18, of Dayton., has gotten himself in a heap-of-
trouble in Singapore. Mr. Fay was caught vandalizing cars with
spray paint and eggs and tearing down traffic signs. ,He was caught
and pled guilty.
When Mr. Fay went on his destructive tear, he must have been
drinking something awfully strong or had a lapse of memory and
thought he was still in America. Whatever the case, he should have
had better sense than do something like that in Singapore. The au-
thorities in Singapore don't "coddle" criminals like we do here in the'
United States.
A good' case in point is Tonya Harding. Everyone knows what
she did and she not, only got off scott-free, she is making tons of
money from. the publicity surrounding her crime.
But Mr. Fay was not as lucky as Ms. Harding. The judge in Sin-
Sapore has sentenced Mr. Fay to four months in prison, fined him
2,215, -and awarded him a "flogging" of six ,whacks on the bare
buttocks with'a cane, administered by a martial arts expert. This
punishment sometimes leaves permanent : scars, they say. That's
why they flog them on the buttocks: Every time they sit down after
that, they think about the bad things .they did and are reminded
not to do it again.
That's the way it was when I was a child growing up in Ferry
Pass. My mother would flog me if I did something wrong, except she
did it with a persimmon switch. She would warn me, "If you do that
again, I'm 'gonna tan your hide!" And, believe me. she would do it.
That's probably the'reason I'm not in prison or dead today. Thanks.
Mother.
But back to Mr. Fay and his dilemma. Yes sir, Mr. Michael Fay
is in some hot water. I read that President Clinton has called the
punishment extreme, but what does he know? That's what the au-
thorities in Singapore told him when he complained through the
U.S. Embassy In Singapore. In effect, they told Mr. Clinton to mind'
-his own business. That's what my mother would have told him, too,
if he had said something to her when she was about to tan some-
one's hide. ,.
"Now, listen here, Mr. Man., she probably would have said.
"You just get on that plane and get yourself back up there to Wash-
ington and mind your own business or you'll get one, tool'
The ironic thing about this incident, though. is that most of the
reaction from Americans (with any sense) has been in favor of Mr.
Fay getting his just reward. Most people who called or wrote in
about the flogging think he deserves it and also think he should en-
act some of it in the United States. Some people want it to be a
public flogging. i
Syndicated columnist Mike Royko recently wrote a column
about the Fay incident, and he reports that he received a stack of
letters "several inches high", and 99 percent wrote that "yes. hoo-
ray, (Fay) should be flogged."
Personally. I thing they should not give Mr. Fay six whacks with
the cane: I think he should get 25 and they should just forget the
fine and jail Lime. That or let someone like my mother tan his hide
with a persimmon switch. Either way, Mr. Fay would think twice
(maybe three or four times) before he defaced someone's property
again.
An article I read quoted a letter from Silver Spring, MD. which
said. "I urge you to ...vigorously apply Singapore law to the crimi-
nal's rear end."
I couldn't have said it better. I only wish Tonya Harding had
committed her crime in Singapore. I would have flown over there to
watch.

Roads, Assistance, Schools
Receive Funding from State
Gulf County fared pretty well from state funding ap-
proved by the 1994 session of the Legislature.
Schools received most of the funding, but new road
paving, recreational projects and library operation came
in for their share of the state funds also. according to in-
formation received from our correspondent in Tallahas-
see, Jack Harper.
According to his report, the schools of Gulf County
are the deepest in the state's pocket, with roads coming
in second. Gulf County Schools will receive funds from
three state sources, totaling over $6 million. The schools
will receive an FEFP allocation of $5,258,201. This a fund
paid the school for each student in daily attendance, offi-
cially known as the Florida Education Finance Program.
The schools will also receive $473,373 in Florida Lottery
receipts. In addition, they will receive $621,312 in total
categoricals, which supplies funds for capital improve-
ments, certain special subjects and other requirements of
the state.
Gulf county also received road paving funds in the
amount of $1,119,381. The specific road this money is to
be spent on Is a paving project on State Road 71, from
the east end of the four-lane in Port St. Joe to its inter-
section with CR 382/Industrial Road, during fiscal 1995.
Beacon Hill Park is another beneficiary of state fund-
ing. The park project will receive $75,000 for develop-
ment. The county library system will receive $26,609
from the state of Florida as a part of its operational bud-
get.

Food Poisoning is Very Common


Food poisoning may be one of
the most common causes of ill-
ness. Upset stomach and diar-
rhea are the usual results of food
poisoning, but sometime symp-
toms may be, more severe and
may even lead to death.
There are many different
causes for food poisoning, and
nearly all may be prevented by
proper food-handling practices
and personal cleanliness. The fol-
lowing are ten rules for safe food
preparation: *Wash your hands
repeatedly. Always wash your
hands before handling food and
after using the bathroom. *Do not
prepare food If you have sores on
your hands or if you feel sick.
*Avoid contact between raw foods
and cooked foods. Clean surfaces
and utensils after use with raw
meat or poultry before use with
other foods. "Keep all kitchen
surfaces meticulously clean.
*Cook food thoroughly. This is es-
pecially important for meats,
eggs, poultry and seafood. Juice
from cooked meats should run
clear. *Eat cooked food immedi-
ately. Serve hot foods hot (at least
140 degrees Fahrenheit), and cold
foods cold (less than. 50 degrees


Fahrenheit). *Store cooked foods
carefully. Cool food rapidly and
keep refrigerated until serving
time. Large batches may. need to


be split into smaller containers
for rapid cooling. *Reheat cooked
foods thoroughly, and serve
promptly, while hot. *Wash all


fruits and vegetables before serv-
ing or cooking. *Protect foods
from insects, rodents and other
animals.

start out too bright Saturday, people still flocked to the We-
wahitchka annual Tupelo Honey Festival Saturday and had a
great time. There were free honey and biscuits for everyone,
plenty of good things to eat, cooked up by the good cooks of
the "Little City With A Big Heart" and some attractive arts
and crafts to view and purchase, ,
In the photo at top left, the beautiful setting under the
oaks on the shores of Lake Alice made a perfect background
for the festival. In the photo at left below, Hugh Semmes
demonstrates some of his crafts offered for sale. In the pho-

A younrig baby begins smiling in response to someone's smile.
After that initial learning experience, a great deal of what goes on in
early childhood is imitation of what the child sees and hears. Treat-
ed with love, kindness and respect, babies will grow up to be adults
who deal with the world in a like manner.
Children are very perceptive. They know if you-deal with them
t- ruthfully or if you say one thing and mean another. A father who
pushes. hits, 'and generally abuses his wife cannot expect the chil-
dren to respect and obey the mother.
Parents teach children to'be good citizens by being good citi-
zens themselves. A child will realize 'if his parents are careful to ob-
serve laws-traffic and'otherwise. This observation by the child will
allow him to accept house iules and rules of behavior better than if
he thought he was the only person 'In the world who had to live by
rules and regulations.
Parents who deal fairly with children and give out praise and
punishment where each is.due will teach a child to be fair in his re-
lationships at home and at school..
A good example will always go further than "laying down the
,k law". .

All You Tomato Growers-----,


Here's Some Important Info

Nothing Makes Up For Lots of Water, Fertilizer, and Mulches


The one vegetable that almost
all backyard gardeners include in
their garden is the tomato. If
you've followed our advice so far,
you should have healthy, vigor-
ous tomaiato plants, well on their,
way' to producing' high quality
fruit. In thit article I will talk
about staking and pruning.


Staking and pruning are "fine
tuning" techniques. They are not
absolutely necessary. They cer-
tainly won't make up for deficien-
cies in fertilizer, water, arid
mulches, or an inadequate spray
program. But' they can enhance
the quality of the tomatoes your
plants produce. I'll cover -these


.Capitol


NEWS

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper


I toyed with the idea of calling this column "Capitol Circus" so I could
0) use one of my. favorite journalistic axioms in a drop line below it reading:
"It's alright to write about the circus, but don't fall in love with the ele-
phants." ,
I discarded the idea as a little too flippant and left the naming of the
column to the editors. But now, after the first regular session, a lot of big
newspapers and lawmakers themselves are calling the Florida Legislature
a circus and the members animals. .goats. horses, cows, chickens
.and hogs." as put by veteran Senate dean. W. D. Childers. D-Pensacola.
"Legislature...or Circus? This year's state legislature is one of the
worst ever. Why?" said a front page headline in the St. Petersburg Times.
The story explained that wasting time on foolish debates on school
prayer, chemical ciastration for rapists, and public nudity left the real is-
sues of juvenile justice, prisons, the Everglades cleanup, health care, and
even the budget to the last awesome closing hours of the session.
Hey! What else is new? It was that way the first session I covered in
1967 and most all of the ones I've been around before retiring in 1987.
The reasons for this "worst than a circus" session, says the liberal
Times,. is the 20-20 split between Democrats and Republicans in the Sen-
ate, the election year, and even single-member districts which make leg-
islators parochial.
I don't buy any of that. Just stand back a minute and take a look at
what was accomplished in this session.
Although pollsters, many lobbyists and almost every do-gooder in the
state told them not to. lawmakers followed their gut iinstincts to adopt a
long-necked comprehensive approach to dealing with the state's young-
est criminals. They have for the first time provided enough money-$237
million-to finance the plan that balances punishment with prevention
and treatment.;
Perhaps, it took national shame and loss of tourist dollars in the af-
termath 'of the murder of a tourist in the rest stop near Monticello to
bring it on, but no longer will the young punks of Florida be able to laugh
at judges, police and theirivictims in the travesty that is the juvenile jus-
tice system. '
The circus legislators also begin a long-needed crack down on the'
parents of the bad kids, making them subject to "parenting classes" if
their kids stay in trouble. Under the new law, judges could order parents
to perform community service, like cleaning up trash or vandalized prop-
erty; or even make them pay for the costs of, detaining their kids who
break the law.-'n fact, under the law, if the parents are on welfare'theii
check*'iould be cut if their children stay in trouble. *' -
I right not work, of course. Only time will tell, but 'it is an honest
start.
This circus session also gave us a start in the clean-up of the Ever-
glades and put enough money in prisons so that not as many adult crim-
inals are going to be turned back onto the streets to prey on more inno-
cent victims. They didn't find a way to make the criminals pay for their
keep behind bars, but maybe they will next year.
There were things I disliked about the session, too. 1 didn't like the:
way Gov. Chiles and most of the Democratic leadership caved in to the
demands of the: black caucus on the Rosewood compensation bill, Nor
did I like the way the Democratic Senate leadership-including Pat
Thomas and Sen. Rick Dantzler, D-Winter Haven-took a walk when the
school prayer bill was brought up so they wouldn't have to vote on it,
Neither of those bills'worried me much. I just don't like chickens in
my circus.
I disliked even more the powerful lawmaker privilege of pulling'tur-
keys out of the public treasury-like the $4 million aquarium in Broward
County and the $500,000 to renovate the courthouse in Gadsden
County, as well as many others. It was unethical, I thought, for the spon-
sor of a school for public health at Florida A&MN to tell senators it was al-
ready funded in the budget when it wasn't. It was stupid of them to be-
lieve Sen. Betty Holzendor, D-Jacksonville, and pass her amendment
which, thankfully. was killed by the conference committee.
All of the bills-including the line items in the budget-can still be
vetoed by the old turkey hunter in the governor's mansion, but don't
count on it. He's got his eye on Republican turkeys. v.'hat with the elec-
tion this year, and just won't see those Democratic turkeys.
All in all, I liked this circus session with that-split Senate, and those
IHispanics and blacks from those single-member districts. It was interest-
ing and the product got out about as well as it did back in those early
porkchop days of Florida when everything was run by white males mostly
from the rural areas.
HERE'S THE CAPITOL ROUNDUP:
Florida lawmakers in overtime session Ipst week appropriated mil-
lions of new dollars for juvenile justice programs and prisons, set,up an
historic clean-up plan for the polluted Everglades, and took a short first
step toward performance-based budgeting.
But they left hanging a massive health care reform package that Gov.
Eawton Chiles says he will call them back into special session in June to.
complete. They also let. die a bill to allow voluntary prayers at high school
events that had passed the House, but couldn't get a two-thirds vote in
the Senate.
The $38.6 billion budget for 1994-95 that goes into effect July 1 if
signed by Gov. Chiles is 8.9 percent higher than the current budget. It,
includes $237 million for new juvenile justice programs and $267 million
to:expand the adult prison system to hold 17,033 additional prisoners.
'; Senate President Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, said the heavy emphasis on.
making Floridians safe from crime was a clear response to what the pub-
lic asked from their state leaders. He said the legislation includes new de-
tention facilities and boot camps as well as money for prevention pro-
grams:. ,
Chiles blamed the failure to adopt the health care package on politics
and said he would bring lawmakers back in the summer when it'll be
"kind of hard to campaign when you're in chambers."
Senate Republicans-who took most of the blame from Chiles-said '
he' was trying to use the health-care issue as a springboard for his elec-
tion campaign. They objected to, using state and federal Medicaid money
to' subsidize health insurance costs for families of four who make less
than $37,000 a year. Instead, they wanted to offer subsides only to fami-
lies making-less than $22,000..
Chiles favors the Everglades restoration bill-passed by both Hous-
es-that will tax sugar and vegetable growers and other South Florida
property owners and condemn 2,000 acres of farm land needed to help in
the cleanup and protect Florida Bay.
,.Most environmental groups opposed it, claiming agriculture, should
pay a bigger share. They are pinning their hopes on a proposed constitu-
tional amendment that may be on the November ballot putting a penny
tax a pound on raw sugar to help finance the cleanup.
A landmark budget reform bill that appeared dead in the Senate was
revived and sent to Gov. Chiles last week. Opposed mostly by state agen-
cy managers, it sets up a process to start measuring the effectiveness of
programs rather than automatically pouring money into them because
they are there. The system is to be implemented gradually over the next
eight years, beginning July 1 in the Department of Revenue. It is favored
by Chiles.


pI


procedures in some detail, ex-
plaining how and why they're
done. My information was provid-
ed by Extension Vegetable Spe-
cialist Jim Stephens.
Staking tomato plants as
they grow .will keep the fruit off
the ground and conserve space in
the garden. Staking also makes it
easier to cultivate and harvest to-
matoes and it helps prevent some
fruit rots. .
First, a few words of caution,
about staking. Staked plants are
more subjepctto a condition called .
blossom-end rot than tomatoes
which are allowed to grow natu-
rally. You must be careful to
avoid plant root injury when you
drive the stakes into the ground."
Some popular tomato varie-
ties' Which benefit form staking'
are Floradel,. Tropic Indian River.,
and Manapal. Those which do'
well unstaked include Walter,
Tropi-Red, Homestead, and Flora-
merica.
One' method of staking which
seems to work well is to use 1x2
wooden stakes about six to eight
feet long. Drive these abut two
feet into the soil, -keeping them
three !to four inches from each.
plant.. As the plants grow, tie
them ,to ithe stakes with string, ,
soft twine, or strips of rags. You'll
probably need to make between
four and six ties during the grow-
ing season.' Always be sure you
make the ties below the, fruit'
clusters.
Pruning is the process of re-
moving the small shoots that de-
velop between the leaf stems and
the main plant stems. Removing
these shoots, or 'suckers', reduc-
es the total number of fruit that
your plants produce, but it caus-
es the fruit that is produced to be
Tomatoes should, be pruned
'about once a week. And, it's best
to prune by hand, holding a
shoot firmly between your thumb
and forefinger, bending it to one
side until it snaps. Then, pull the ':
shoot off in the opposite direc-
tion. Reversing the direction is
necessary to prevent injury to the
leaf axil or the main stem.
When you prune, leave two or
three main stems for plant devel-
opment. And, be careful not to
disturb the fruit buds which ap-
pear just above or below the' point
where the leaves are attached to
the leaf.stems.- .' .
Staking and pruning are ben-
eficial steps in tomato culturing.
As I said, staking certain varieties
keep fruit off the ground, reduc-
ing some disease problems. And;
it helps conserve space in the gar-
den. Pruning removes the small
side' branches, called suckers,
which form between 'the main
stems and 'leaf stems. While

Marketing or Ministry?
But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block
and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both
Jews and Greeks, the power of God and the wisdom of God (1 Co-
rinthians 1:23-24, NKJV)
In the so-called "Church Growth" movement, a man named George
Barna Js considered to be one of the authorities. His writings repre-
sent a fairly solid analysis of the mood and mentality of religion in
America. In one of his books, he makes a provocative statement-
'There is a fine line between clever marketing and compromised spiri-
tuality." Many have jumped aboard the marketing movement with lit-
tle regard for Barna's warning. While I often agree with Barna's analy-
sis, in my estimation, he-like most of his advocates-crosses the line
between the clever and the compromised.
Some claim that all this is the same old Gospel message in a new
medium. There Is no doubt that we are often outwitted and outworked
by the opposition. Substance and style need not stand as opposites. A
great message can get lost in a sloppy presentation. But methods and
message are so closely related, to be accommodating in our methods
often means compromise in our message. Like most deadly sins, this
is a subtlety. As we try to be slick in our spin yet solid in our story, we

By Rev. Steve Cloud


hardly notice the slide in our story, we hardly notice the slide down
the slippery slope of compromise. The compromise is costly-
righteousness becomes shallow piety, worship becomes entertainment,
Christian fellowship becomes church dinners, and Discipleship be-
comes recreation. In crossing over, the Cross is what is lost. The Cross
is not only central, it is crucial.
Max Lucado rightly says of the cross: "Every witness either steps
toward it or away from it. It simultaneously compels and repels. And
you are either on one side or the other. A choice is demanded. We can
do what we want with the cross. We can examine its history. We can
study its theology. We can reflect upon its prophecies. Yet the one
thing we can't do is walk away in neutral. No fence sitting is permitted
The cross, in its absurd splendor, doesn't allow that." (No Wonder
They Call Him Savior. p. 73).
While I sometimes agree with Barna's diagnosis, his cure is a bit-
ter pill to swallow and borders on a medicine of malpractice. Let us be
warned: Worldly methods most often yield worldly results. The locomo-
tive that drives this train is the thinking that growth is the greatest
good. If it reaches; it must be right. If it grows, it must be of God. Un-
precedented growth has become the sole measure of ministerial suc-
cess. I constantly remind myself of the words of the Quaker Theolo-
gian, Elton Trueblood: "The measurable may be but a fraction of what
is really meaningful." This Is not sour grapes. Our church is growing.
But the most Important measures of a church cannot always be re-
ported statistically.
The medical profession has a term for uncontrolled, unneeded,
meaningless growth. They call it cancer. Marketing the church may be
more of a malignancy in the body of Christ than most of us would care
to admit.

If This Is Thursday. Then It
Must Be St. Petersburg
Once I saw a movie by a
name similar to this and remem-
ber thinking how exciting it
would be to see so many'different
places, even in a relatively short
time. The Gifted Education class-
es of Joy Alles had quite an Itin-
erary this week. From the mana-
tees at Homosassa Springs, the
Historical Museum at Fort Myers,
Circus Life at Sarasota, and then
to St. Petersburg to tour-among
other things-the Salvador Dali
Museum. Of course, they went to
dozens more things, but I just hit'
the high spots. Gifted students
and their guests were: Alex Chan.

separate us from the love of God

Parents Make the Difference
One of the worst things a par-
ent can say to a child, notes De-
bora Phillips, Ph.D.. author of
How To Give Your Child A Great
Self Image (Random House,
1989), is "If you try harder, you
can do better." That statement'


implies that the child has more
than he's giving, "and he'll always.
feel there's some elusive goal he
could reach if only he did a little'
more," says Phillips. : l"'
Instead of focusing on' the
end product, concentrate on the'
effort your child makes. 'Dpn't'
say, 'You're; so smart. I'm really,'
proud of'you." but rather, 'Ytou-'
really tried hard; you must be so'
proud of yourself." .'.

band will be participating in the
iSeafood Festival held in May at
City Park.


The I Dare You Leadership
Award is made available each

others through lives of service.
The award takes 'I t- 'nam'e"fmrom

sonic boom. but we also have some Insurance cov-

Chairman Redd: The next Item will be the

changes in the old process, and they have come up
with a couple more auggesorns If you want to tell
us what they were Walter, we will go aih it
Superintendent .Wilder: The change is there
was some discussion about the cheerleader being
dismissed and not allowed to come back a year,
and that has been reworded as evidenced on page

new wording. That's the only change in the entire
document that you received that last time you
looked atLthe process. .
Chairman Redd: Is there any discussion on it?
Mr. Hanlon: Yes. I would like to ask some
questions Charles. Charles, we are. I think- You
had a chance to reslew this whole policy?
Mr. Cosun: Yes, I have reviewed
Mr. Hanlon: I think It was stated in one of the
board meeting that cheerleader ras part of, was
considered a sport. Was It not?
Mr. Costin I don t know IrM sure it s been re-
ferred to as a sport, yes.
Mr. Hanlon: Well, if it was considered as a
sport in one of ihe board meetings. Irm, sure we'
can verify It by going oer tLhe tapes or the ,min-
utes We should go on guidelines so the Athletic
State Association. athletics In the State of Florida.
Am rI correct? In other words, the guidelines or
policy procedures, what we may do cannot over-
ride them
i Mr. CoaLtin Im not sure that a cheerleader
would be under the definition of a sport under
those guidelines.
Mr Harlon Well. as far as )our knowledge if
I m reviewing this whole policy. n it a legal.
Mr. CosLin- I don't see anything wrong with it
Mr. Hanlon Okay.
Mr. Costin. Do you have anything in paracular
that comes to your mind that you would like to
bring out?
Mr. Hanion No, the only problem I had with IL
I did not dispute this policy that was renewed by
the committee and brought to us by the Superin-
tendent The only thing I had any problem with
was the discipline part which Ia Part 2 The reason
I'm elaborating on this. n-aotl) everyboei, done got
their Star. The Star had kinda led thal we had
Some questions on the selection process. We did
not. The selection process or any other section or
paragraph in this, I had no problems with; The
only one I had with is the Section 2 which is disci-.
plinary and that was I felt like that .if a student
that was in sports should be treated the same in
all sports baseball, basketball, football. It didn't
make no difference if they was kicked off the team
the year that they was playing, they had a ngit to
try out of the next following year, not to make the
team so to say, but they had a right to try out I
still stand on that. I have no problems with what
you got here today, and I just want to be cleared
up, and also want to clear up that you did review
it as our attorney, and your saying you don't have
any problem with the legal part of it.
Mr. Costin: I have no problem with it.
Mr. Hanlon: Okay. Then with that. I would
suggest, I would make a motion if nobody has any:
problem, that we accept this policy procedure that'
was recommended by the Superintendent and the
'committee that presented it to us as it is today.
Mrs. Pierce: I second it
Chairman Redd: A motion by Mr. Hanlon, sec-'
-and by Mrs. Pierce to accept the cheerleader selec-
tion process as recommended to the Board by the
Superintendent and approved by the Attorney. Is
there any more discussion? All in favor signify by
saying AYE. I panlon, Byrd, Pierce, Whitfield, and
Redd -AYE. All opposed None. The motion is car-
ried.
Mrs. Pierce: We voted on it. Will they start
practice Monday?
Superintendent Wilder. That would be at the
discretion of the sponsors. We have never told
them to tryout Whenever they get ready, they will.
Mrs. Pierce: Then this will allow them to pro-
ceed?
Superintendent Wilder: If they think it is an
appropriate time.
Chairman Redd: I might add. I stand to be cor-
rected, you mentioned that other night that if later
on we needed to come back and add to this, we
had the option to do that.
Mr. Costir: The discussion that we had the
other night was concerning the selection process.
If you were going to change the selection process,
you will need to reconvene before April or it will be
too late. They would already be selected the cheer-
leaders. If you want to make some changes on dis-
cipline, qualifications, on other selection process, I
don't see any problem.
Chairman Redd: Is there anything else to come
before the Board? The meeting is adjourned.
