vors, games for everyone and.entertainment to enjoy for the time

The activities will all take place at the First Union Park at the
corner of Fifth Street and Highway 98, next to the bay.


-Gulf County Is without the
services of an attorney following
the resignation of Pat Floyd last
Thursday, due to what has been
l Identifed by Chairman Warren
Yeager as "a lack of communica-
tion."
'The action which precipitated
an emotional outburst of anger
by, Commissioner Billy Traylor,
responsible for Floyd's tendering
his resignation, was the Board's
intent to raze a building which'
had been identified as a "crack
house" in Wewahitchka. The
Board decided' nearly two months
ago to put into motion a proce-
dure which would legally allow
them.to destroy the building, if
Sthe,owner refused to do so.
S'As the time drew near-
Friday, June 24-for the actual
work of destruction to begin, the
CorAmission repeatedly brought
the subject up. asking if the legal
matters were taken care of, to al-
low ,the County to remove the
building as called for in their Or-
dinAnce'93-05.
But. Thursday, according to
attorney Pat Floyd. he asked if
the Code'Enforcement .Board had
conducted 'its hearing which was
required before the building could
be razed. Failure to hold this
hearing threw a road-block in the
patH of the whole operation.
TRAYLOR INFURIATED
Commissioner Traylor, in
whose district the "crack house"
was .located became emotional
over the matter, called Mr. Floyd
on the telephone Thursday after-
noon-and proceeded to give Floyd
a "dressing down" for failure to
have legal matters in order so the
operation could proceed as
-4i planned. .. ..,- ....
Floyd said Traylor's "out-
burst" was completely out of con-'
trol. Traylor admitted he was out..
of line-Monday, saying. "I apolo-
gize. I shouldn't -have said what I
did, but I won't apologize for ac-
cusing Floyd of not doing his job.
This isn't the only foul-up he has
made since he has been the
Board's attorney. I have tried to
support Floyd, but this last fail-
ure of his makes it impossible for
me to support and work with him
any.longer."
Traylor went on to point out,
'The'people in Wewa and in this
district were expecting that build-
Ing, to' come down Friday. They
had been told it would. Now, we
find 'out Thursday afternoon all
the preliminaries haven't been
done."
Floyd was not present at the
special meeting held Monday
night at 9:00 p.m.. but sent the
Board a letter, which accused
Traylor of threatening him with

physical harm and saying he "will
not lower my standards by con-
tinuing to attempt to work with a
person of this mentality," leaving
his resignation intact.
BOARD DIVIDED
From the beginning of the
meeting, it was evident the Board
was divided over the matter, with
Hammond, Peters and Armstrong
wishing to work something out to
get Floyd to return, Traylor want-
ing to replace him immediately
and Chairman Yeager trying to
-moderate both .g~i..s ^pydha'd,.
the same support when he was
hired, with Traylor and Yeager de-
siring to keep attorney Bob
Moore, as the attorney.
Yeager pointed out the abort-
ed razing of the building was ac-
tually "All of our fault. It was ours
for not calling the meeting of the
Code Enforcement Board, rather
than leaving the matter up to
someone else to take care of; it
was Floyd's for not making cer-
tain we did call for the meeting
and it was the Building Depart-
inent's for assuming everything
had been taken care of, rather
than accepting a verbal assu-
rance that it had."
Yeager said he didn't agree
with Traylor's temperamental out-
burst, "but I understand why he
did it. He was upset over failure
of a very important operation."
Commissioner Hammond
supported Floyd by saying his ac-
tion at the last minute was dictat-
ed by his "desire to save this

Board's buttl In my opinion Floyd
has ably served, this Board and I
wish to see him continue to do
so.
Traylor stated. "I was totally
wrong in what I said to him and I
apologize. He didn't quit because
of what I said to him. My only
point was to make him do his
job."
Chairman Yeager pointed out
Floyd was hired on a 3-2 vote.
"but once he was hired I support-
ed him from the very beginning.
The record will show I supported
him right down the line. Traylor
has even supported himl"
Commissioner Peters, who
has been Floyd's staunchest sup-
porter from the beginning, said, "I
think Pat Floyd has been the best
attorney this Board has ever had.
since I have served here."
WRITE LETTER
The Board finally ended the
discussion by deciding to write a
letter of apology to Floyd. the lan-
guage still to be determined and

The Star-Spangled Banner
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As itfitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Some

We Rememer Am

THERE'S PROBABLY NOT a person in Gulf County who
doesn't remember Amy Tapper in one way or another. We would
say that in every. case, it is a fond memory arid one that will
probably be hard to forget. :
Amy is probably best remembered by the majority of people
here in Port St. Joe as the lady who lived in the large house be-
side the bayou. But she touched many lives from that large
house beside the bayou," which her late husband, George Tap-
per, built for her.
.Amy Tapper was also known as the widow of George G. Tap-.
per, a lady who continued the many generous contributions to
worthy organizations and was the largest single contributor to
the scholarship fund of Gulf Coast Community College. Amy
served ablvon the board of, the college after her.,late husbands
death. *ff.- ... ..
SHE WAS A philanthropist of considerable stature, a
church-woman, a business woman with considerable 'holdings
which she managed ably. She managed those holdings to benefit
others as much as she did for her own benefit. The award of the
Tapper Foundation funds every year made quite a dent in the
needs of many organizations throughout the Panhandle. What
people appreciated most about her was, she was.just plain
"Amy"
She was a mother, who was always participating or witness-
.ing the activities her daughter was Involved in. Business didn't'
get in the way of her parental duties at any time, as it does with
so many busy people.
BUT, WE REMEMBER Amy as the tomboy who lived at the
corner of Long Avenue and Ninth Street during the 40's and -
played cowboys, built camps among the palmetto covered lots in
the, neighborhood and played ball with ,us boys who lived next
door. She was as tough .as any boy, physically, in those days
and in business matters in more recent davs. We all knew her --
affectionately by a certain nick-name which she. being a lady,,
didn't particularly like after her childhood days were a thing of
the past..
But you always ,knew' Amy was a lady, from her childhood d
days of the 40's to the day she died. .There was no mistaking L
that attribute in Amelia Gibson Tapper.

. Danger and All!


THE FOURTH OF JULY is
the favorite holiday of just about
every young boy that ever lived.
Not because of -the games and
contests for kids at p ics which
go along with the holiday. That's
enjoyable enough for them, but
what they really enjoy-after they
reach age five and above-is the
fireworks!
Yesl Light a big one. and let
her blow! ;
Fireworks .are dangerous.
Every adult knows that. They will
blow your hand off,, put out your
eyes, bum you, damage your
ears, etc. We hear of the danger
involved in using fireworks every
year about this time. 'Some,
states-Florida included-
completely outlaw them because
of the danger. .
The so-called "safe" fireworks
are just about as bad, except for
the explosive danger. Those suck-
ers will burn youl

ger involved, fireworks, are a fa-
vorite with kids. I remember
when I was a kid [Good memory,
huh?] Fireworks and July Fourth
were both my favorites. Fourth of
July meant watermelon, hand-
cranked ice cream, corn on the
cob and fried chicken. I hear it
means the same thing today.
Above all, July Fourth meant
almost every kid in- town received
a whole dollar from their parents
to spend on fireworks, back in
Oklahoma in the late 30s.
A buck would buy a pile of
fireworks, if you didn't waste it all
on sky rockets and roman can-


dles. That dollar would'buy a.:-
sack full of firecrackers!.
You could almost pop fire-'
crackers from breakfast until
noon, if you had a dollar's worth.
BACK IN SHAMROCK, Okla-
homa, in' the. late .30s, we had
probably the equivalent to Kes's
famous Woodrow Kennan's Store..
It was known as Eric Ferren's
Mercantile [they sold almost any- '
thing you wanted to.buyl.
It would take at least an hour
on July 3 to spend that dollar for
fireworks. We would check the la-,-
bels and see how many firecrack-


ers there were in a particular
package. to 'see which one gave
us the most bang for the buck.
After some careful, shopping,
.%we were set for the big day, when
iwe could open up our pyrotechnic
treasure and bang away. ..
I was up at the first crack of
Iday. A quick breakfast of eggs,
'bacon, cream gravy and biscuits
lwe thought we had it bad, having
'to eat all that old bacon, eggs out
of the chicken yard, butter we
.had to chum ourselves, and milk
'straight from the cow]. t
After a breakfast' ofthe only
z-hing.we had In the house to eat,
It was time to make a bee-line
down to Robert Jones' house 'and
'pool our firecrackers in order to
:have a big day,: blowing tip the
neighborhood.
'- WE BEGAN TO get. serious
'"with the.task at hand. We'blew
;up tin cans. We blew' holes in'the
'ground. -We blew up cardboard
boxes. We lit firecrackers .while


holding them' in our hands, and
threw them up in the air to ex-
plode. You name it. If you could
do it with a firecracker, we did it.
My .grandparents, who .lived
near Lubbock; Texas at the time,
sent us some fireworks for Christ-
mas and us kids were the envy of.
the town-fireworks twice in one
year!
.. We were all so taken with -
fireworks on the July Fourth lholi-
day, we almost forgot 'the water-
melon, corn, fried 'chicken, corn
on the cob' and lemonade..
That 'was lermonade made -by
squeezing fresh lemons into a'
pitcher and adding water and ice.
We .had.,'instant lemonade, too,
b~it we got :it' out of the. lemon
fruit instead of- an" envelope or'
can. .
I'll e.Jyou,. we had a ball on,
July Foufth! ,.
ONe JULY FOURTH was: a
little different from others. Morri
Sia arid IBaddy never had an anx-.


ious moment about the danger to
us boys blowing up firecrackers.
We were smart boys. We had
sense enough not to do any of
that dangerous stuff, like blowing
up glass bottles and holding fire-
crackers in our hands after they
were lit. We were the example of
good decorum with our fireworks.
One year, after we were older,
my little, brother, Will, decided to
pick -up .a firecracker which
hadn't gone off. We lit it and it
just sputtered and the fuse went.
out.
.Well,- Will ['Spee to most of>
you] decided .he would try picking
up the unexploded firecracker
and smoke it. If a grapevine, cof-
fee grounds, rabbit tobacco, etc.,
would smoke pretty good, an un-
'exploded firecracker should give
Syou a real bang, if you smoked it.
Will found out that it would,
and it did! He ate soup for a
While. Of course, he immediately .
- lost his taste for. smoked fire-
cracker! ,

Something To Write Home About
Many years ago when I was in school in Mississippi, I would
write home every week or so and, in return, my mother would write
to me. (Actually, I would write to her hinting that I needed some
money and she would write back telling me how hard things were.) "
We didn't make a lot of long distance telephone calls in those
days: Long distance telephone calls, for the most part, were re-
served by many as a means of conveying bad news, congratulations
on special days and things like that.
This morning, after a couple of eye-opening cups of coffee, I be-
gan to think of all the things that have happened in the past few
weeks and it occurred to me that many of the things that have hap-
pened would beworth writing to mother about.
The only problem is my mother-and father-is deceased, and
there is no one to write home to. If, however, she were alive and still
living at, 1600 Olive Road in Pensacola, I would probably write to
her, and the letter-would go like this:
Dear Mother: .
Just a note to let you know we are all doing fine here in
Port St. Joe. We have been real busy and haven't been able to
come home like we planned, but we -hope to- come home one
weekend before too long.* Everyone sends their love and we all
hope you are continuing to do well. Are you still taking your
0 blood pressure medicine 'like the doctor ordered? I hope so.
Mamma, can you believe what happened in California? I
can't. This O.J. Simpson affair has me completely bum-
fuzzled. It was tragic enough that two people were brutally
murdered and O.J. was arrested and charged with the deed;'
but did you see those mindless, raving idiots who were stand-
ing by the. side of the road cheering O.J. on as another mind"
less, raving idiot drove him around while he held a gun to his
head? .
I know you've been praying for the people in California,
Momma, but I really don't believe there's any hope for them. If
I ever had any doubt that insanity wasn't ramparit in that
state, those doubts were completely erased in the past couple,
of weeks. The federal government needs to fence off California
and rename it "The Funny Farm".
It must be something in the drinking water out there,
Mamma. Or, do you think the communists are putting some-
thing in the wine they make out there? Whatever it is, there;
are a lot of heathens out there.
Maybe it is something in the air. If it is, some of it must
have blown into Florida. Have you heard what happened right
here in Gulf County? Well, if you haven't, let me ,tell you. it's a
really big thing, especially for our small community. Califor-
nia. yes. But Gulf County? Never : .
There's really hot much. I can tell you about what hap-
pened because I.don't. know what happened, and no one else
seems to know except those.who do know, if that makes any
sense. The ones who seem to know ain't talking and that'
makes f6r a bad situation. Rumors and gossip are rampant
What did happen was that the governor sent some people
in here (Gulf County) and, removed the sheriff, scraped his
name off the jail house door, sealed off his office and took
charge of the sheriffs department. We now have an "acting
sheriff', a man from Pinellas County, a, place that reminds me
a lot of California.
Well, the governor is supposed to know what he's doing,
Mamma, and I hope he does. This mess-has our small com-rn:
munjty all upset. Maybe you can re direct some of your
prayers to he pars involved in the ties involved is affair. Ad don't forget
W1 the governor, bless his heart.
Well, I'll close for now and get to work. Take care of your-
self and'write when you can. We love you. .
With love, : '
Your son, WWC .
My mother would have said of the above. "Law-gee! I don't know

With more than 736,000 sig-
natures in hand, the Tax Cap
Committee has announced that it
has achieved Its goal of obtaining
enough' signatures to put its four
constitutional amendments re-.
turning control of taxes to taxpay-
ers and protecting property rights
on the November ballot.
David Biddulph. chairman of .
the. ,tatewide- grass roots orgahi-
zation that spearheaded the peti-
tion drive, said, 'The success of.
this citizens' campaign sent a-
clear message from the taxpayers
of Florida to their elected officials
that the days of 12 percent a year
government spending are over."
"We have had overwhelming
response from voters all over Flor-
ida-in small towns and large cit-
ies, everywhere our petition gath-
erers went," Biddulph. said.
- 'Florida's taxpayers have said
that they've had enough tax in-
creases to pay for programs that
don't work, aren't needed, or that
we can't afford."
Biddulph is a New Smyrna
4 Beach marketing executive who
was a key figure in the recent
Save Our Homes petition drive
approved in the last election,
which limits property tax increas-
es. He organized the current peti-
tion drive which will put on the
ballot this NovFmber measures
which would r quire voter ap-
proval of all new taxes, strong
new property rights protection,
tighter restrictions on ballot ini-
tiatives and clarifying language
for petition drive language.
Biddulph said the petition
drive received strong support
from every region of the state, but
that most impressive was the re-
sponse of a direct mail campaign
which resulted in people sending
back cash contributions with
their signed petitions. More than
9,000 voters contribute more
than $100,000 with average do-
nations of $13.25 each.
The ballot issues qualified by
Tax Cap are: a requirement that
all new taxes be submitted to the
voters for approval; property own-
ers would be compensated if their
property loses value as a result of
government action; a requirement
that two-thirds of the voters must


approve any new tax imposed by
constitutional amendment, such
as a state personal income tax;,:
modification of the current "single
subject" restriction in the Florida
Constitution to allow voters to'
make comprehensive changes in
the way tax increase decisions
are made. The restriction will re-
main, except for. those constitu-
tional amendments or revisions
that limit the power of govern-
ment to raise revenue.
To qualify to be placed on the
general election ballot, a, citizen
Initiative must- be signedd by
429,431 registered voters state-
wide. The petitions must be
signed by at least eight percent of
the voters who voted in the last
presidential election In at least 12
of Florida's 23 congressional dis-
tricts.
Biddulph said his organiza-
tion is in the process of pre-
qualifying all signatures that
have been gathered, checking
them against existing voter rolls
and marking them with voter
identification numbers, which will
make It easier for elections oim-
clals in individual counties to ver-
ify the names. The names are
then shipped to the counties for
final verification.
Enough signatures already
have been checked to qualify the
Tax Cap drive in eleven of the 12
needed congressional districts,
Biddulph said. He expects that
process to be completed success-
fully in the next few weeks.
Despite the fact that more
than enough signatures have
been gathered, Biddulph said his
petition gatherers will continue
working. "As long as there are
people who want to sign up with

fluence".


us, we will take their signatures.
We want to send an even stronger
message to the political leader-
ship of Florida that the voters are
ready for some. fundamental
change and they will be looking
for candidates who agree with
them."


Biddulph said that many
business groups and a number of
elected officials have expressed
support for the Tax Cap drive and
that he will be announcing the
names of those supporting the ef-
fort over the coming weeks.

Dear Wesley:
I've just returned from the
50th anniversary reunion of my
June 1944 graduating class,
Pierre S. duPont High School.
Wilmington. Delaware. What a
joyous experience it was to be re-
united with those whom I had not
seen for all these years!
While in Wilmington. I was
given a list of class members for
whom the reunion committee had
no addresses. As I scanned the
list, I came across the name Flora
Stabler Conger. I thought. "Gee,
that's funny. I work at P.A.E.C. in
Chipley with a Dr. Flora Conger.
But, of course. It couldn't be the
same person."
When I returned home, just
for the heck of it I called Flora
who lives in DeFuniak Springs
and posed the question to her.-As
you've probably guessed by now.
she and I were classmates. She Is
a semi-retired college instructor
attached to Okaloosa-Walton
community College and works
with the Even Start program at
P.A.E.C. Since I work on a differ-
ent project, we only spoke to one
another in passlrig and never
compared notes about our back-
grounds. We shall be having
lunch together soon and you can
bet your life we'll be doing a lot of
comparing and catching up.
This was such a unique expe-
rience I wanted to share It with
you and your readers. Truth is
stranger than fiction.
Sincerely.
Barbara Shirle.-Scott

Apply Now for Quota Hunts


The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission has applica-
tions available for ,some unique
quota hunt opportunities. Sports-
men can pick them up at any of
the Commission's regional offices.
The Commission fills the quo-
ta of participants for each hunt in
a. computerized random drawing
process. To be included in. the
drawing, applications must be de-
livered to the Commission's Talla-
hassee headquarters, via a postal
delivery service, between July 13
and July 29.
*-2
Hunters who, have mobility
impairments and require special
equipment are eligible for quota
hunts on the Three Lakes and
Seminole Forest wildlife manage-
ment areas (WMA's in central
Florida, the Holton Creek WMA in
northeast Florida and the .John
G. and Susan H., Dupuis, ,Jr.,
Wildlife ,and Environmental Area
in south Florida.
These hunts are exclusively
for persons who are permanently
confined to a wheelchair, require
the : use of mechanical aids
(crutches or walkers) or, persons
with complete single leg amputa-
tions. They should submit a Mo-
bility Impaired Persons Hunt ap-

plication.
Two WMA's.in northeast Flor-
ida-Camp Blanding and An-
drews-offer the opportunity for
adults to take young hunters be-
tween the ages of 8 and 16, on a
public hunting area where safety
and a positive learning environ-
.ment are emphasized above all
else.
"These hunts have been ex-
tremely popular with youngsters,
and the number of applicants ex-
ceeds 'the spaces available each
year," Eddie White, quota hunt
coordinator, said.
Interested youngsters should
submit a Camp Blanding and An-
drews Supervised Youth Hunt ap-
plication.
'The Goethe WMA in Levy
County has a quota hunt for
groups that use dogs to hunt
deer. The quota is seven groups,
ranging in size from five to 15
hunters. Goethe Dog Hunt appli-
cations are available from any of
the regional offices.
Wildlife management areas in
the southern part of the state, of-
fer hunters an unusual challenge
because of the glades-like envi-
ronment. Hunting there requires
tracked vehicles, and permits to
operate tracked vehicles on the


Rotenberger. Everglades and Ho-
ley Land WMA's are issued in two
random selections.
Last year's applicants who
, did not receive a permit, are eligi-
ble to be included in the first se-
lection this year. All others will be
processed in the second random
selection. Applicants should sub-
mit an Everglades Airboat appli-
cation to take part in the special
quota hunt there. Airboat appli-
cations also are processed in two
random selections.
Because of fluctuating water
levels, the quota for the Rotenber-
ger Walk Hunt can't be estab-
lished early enough to be includ-
ed with regular nine-day anid
special quota hunts. However,, the
Commission's regional offices
have applications for permits to
hunt during the Rotenberger


Walk Hunt.,
"Approximately 55,000 re-
quests for regular nine-day and
special quota' hunt permits were
received during the June 1-13 ap-
plication period," White said.
The random selection should,
be completed by July 20. Appll-'
cants will receive either a quota
" hunt permit or a rejection notice
a few days later. Rejection notices
contain instruction for reapplying
for areas that still have permits
available.
Applications received after
June 13 are processed in first-
come, first-served order for re-
maining permits after the random;
selection. /
For additional information,
interested persons should contact
the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission.

Repairing A

Fractured Tooth


If you have a fractured
front tooth, whether chipped
or broken, this not only de-
tracts from your appear-
ance, it also can make the
tooth more vulnerable to de-
cay. It should be repaired as
soon as possible.
If the problem is. small,
the dentist may use a com-
posite resin in an acid etch
process. The chipped or
broken tooth will first be
cleaned with pumice and a
revolving rubber wheel. Then
he'll apply a dilute acid to
the surface of the tooth so
the composite resin will ad-
here to it. After the correct
shade has been selected, he
will shape the resin directly
onto the fractured area. In a


few minutes it will harden,
and then the dentist will give
the repaired area its final
shaping and polishing.
A. larger problem will
probably require a porcelain
crown or veneer, These resto-
rations' will hold the tooth to-
gether and not allow any fu-
ture cracking or chipping,
These restorations will also
last an extremely long time,
usually a lifetime if properly
cared for and regular clean-
ings and checkups are per-
formed.

game at 10:20 p.m.
Callaway Jumped out to a 3-0
lead in the top of the first inning.

went up 4-1 in the top of the'
fourth inning. St. Joe scored two,
runs in the bottom of the fourth
inning, on four consecutive sin-
gles by Micah Dodson, Ray Ray
Bailey,- Stephen Tarantino, and
Cody Strickland. St. Joe tied the
game in the fifth inning with a
single by Shawn Reynolds, a sto-
len base, and single by Kale Guil-
lot to force the game into three in-
nings of overtime.
Neither team scored in the
sixth, seventh, or eighth innings
with both teams making out-
standing defensive plays. After
Callaway National went ahead 5-
4 in the ninth inning, St. Joe' got
Michael Rowan to third base in
the bottom of the ninth, on an er-
ror and two stolen bases, but was,
unable to get him home.
The coaches for St. Joe were
extremely proud of their players,"
who gave everything they had to
give during the three hour game.
The boys really, matured and'
came together as a unit during
that game. It was something to


see eight year olds playing their
hearts out. St. Joe's defense was
superb, no more than two errors
were made in any game, and only
one error was made in the nine
inning contest. No team, came
close to beating the Callaway Na-
tional team in the tournament ex-
cept St. Joe, who lost to them by
one run in both games.
Leading hitters for the tour-
nament were Ray Ray Bailey

Funds to Research and Control Exotic Weeds Threatening Crops


Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford announced
this week an agreement that will
provide $95,000 to fund Florida's
research into controlling tropical
soda apple-an exotic noxious
weed that could threaten Florida
Agriculture by crowding out na-
tive plants and crops.
The agreement established a
partnership between the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and the Inter-
state Pest Control Compact
(IPCC), a coalition of 24 member
states that have developed an ag-
ricultural pest eradication and
control insurance fund for exotic
pests.
Crawford said winning the
funding was a regional effort, ac-


complished with the assistance of
his fellow agriculture commis-
sioners in Georgia, South Caroli-
na and North Carolina.
"We are all very concerned
about the spread of tropical soda
apple," Crawford said. 'This exot-
ic pest plant is very invasive and
difficult to control, which makes
it a potential threat to agriculture
wherever it becomes established.
This funding will be used to sup-
port a variety of tropical soda ap-
ple research projects designed to
assist in developing effective con-
trol and regulatory measures."
Crawford said the IPCC is an
excellent means of 'funding pro-,
jects that target agricultural pest
problems of regional or national
concern.


Projects to be funded will in-
clude a USDA/ARS ecological
range study; a preliminary survey
by scientists from the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences of potential
biological control agents in Brazil;
and. tests involving combinations
of cultural and chemical controls.
Probably Introduced into
Florida from' South' America or
the Caribbean, tropical soda ap-
ple has invaded more than
400,000 acres of pasture land in
the south central part of the ';"
state.
Once established, it rapidly.
becomes the dominant vegeta-;
tion. .
The plant grows about two i
feet tall and is covered with sharp


prickles. Each plant may produce
more than 100 seed-filled fruits,
which are eaten and spread by
cattle and wildlife.
Tropical soda apple was
placed on Florida's noxious weed
list and is being considered for a
similar federal listing because it
displaces native and preferred
range land forage plants.

Anti-Net

Forces Claim

Enough

Signatures

Organizers of the Save Our
Sealife Campaign today an-
nounced the successful conclu-
sion of their historic voter initia-
tive petition campaign to place on
the November ballot an 'amend-
ment to limit marine net fishing
in Florida. waters. S.O.S. volun-
teers have gathered enough sig-
natures, over'540,000, to meet
the state's, requirement of.
429,428 valid signatures.
Dr. Tom Rainey, who served
10 years on the Florida Freshwa-
ter Fish and Game Commission,
said the net-limits will bring to
saltwater animals the same level
of protection that has protected
inland wildlife. "If the amendment
passes, the reform will have, a
more profound effect on Florida's
future than anything else on the
November ballot," Rainey de-
clared.
The announcement was also
historic because it represents the
first 'time that Florida voters will
consider a marine- conservation
issue on the ballot, which in the
coming days is likely to be
dubbed by the state "Amendment "
3." If approved by the voters, the
amendment, entitled "Limiting
Marine Net Fishing", would -pro-
hibit the use of gill nets in Florida
waters, and prohibit the use of
other nets larger than 500 square.
feet in mesh area from nearshore
waters. The amendment would
take effect on July 1, 1995.
S.O.S. is proposing' the
amendment, which they say is
designed to protect saltwater fish,
shellfish and other marine ani-
mals from overfishing and waste-
ful fishing practices.

The U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission (CPSC) esti-
mates that.in 1993 approximately
12,600 people were treated in
hospital emergency rooms for in-
juries associated with fireworks.
Of those cases, 9,400 occurred
between June 23 and July 23.
There was one death in Florida
caused by fireworks last year, ac-'
cording to the Florida HRS Office
of Vital Statistics.
The spectacular pyrotechnic
displays that many communities
put on to celebrate the nation's
birthday are conducted by
trained and licensed profession-
Sals, and the devices they use are
not legally available to 'the public.
'People who, want to mark Inde-
pendence Day with fireworks dis-
plays would be advised to visit
such an event instead of risking ,
Speisonalinjury by using any kind
of fireworks.
However. Individuals who in-
sist on celebrating with their own
fireworks should use only legal
devises and follow safety-tips-'to
help keep their holiday from turn-
ing Into a tragedy.
The Federal Hazardous Sub-
stances Act prohibits the sale of
the most dangerous fireworks, in-
cluding reloadable shells, "Cherry
Bombs". aerial bombs. "M-80's",
arid "Silver Salutes".
Florida law goes further and
prohibits almost all that contain
explosives. That makes common
firecrackers like "Black Cats",
"Ladyfingers", and similar devices
illegal in Florida. Also illegal in
Florida are "Roman Candles",
"Skyrockets", and other devices,
that are ignited to become air-
borne.
In' fact, the only fireworks le-
gal for the public in Florida are
toy gun "caps"', "smoke bombs",
"party poppers" (which pop when
a string is pulled), "snappers"
(which pop when thrown on a.
hard surface), 'snakes" (which
produce a large snake-like ash
when lit), and various hand-held
or ground-based "sparklers" and

was nearly wiped out unintentionally. Not too long ago I had sprayed
my garden with some weed killer. In haste, I had not cleaned my
sprayer properly, only to use it a few days later trying to wipe out
some worms that were eating the leaves of my beans. I sprayed the in-
secticide and wiped out the worms, but also wilted the beans and
everything else as well. A quick rain and.some cool mornings salvaged
my garden. But it was nonetheless stunted. It never really recovered.
My neighbor explained I needed two sprayers-one for insecticide and
one for weed killer. But that wasn't the only lesson I learned.
It is so easy for us to hurt even when no harm was intended. The
words sprayed from our mouths can so quickly be deadly poison.
James described the tongue as "an unruly evil, full of deadly poison"
(James 3:8 NKJV). Some of us know this and use it purposely towards
such ends. But even the most seasoned and disciplined tongue can
spray the poisoned venom of unintended malice and meanness. Such
is the destructive capacity of our words. They sometimes mortally
wound, even when they were meaningfully meant to mend. To control
the tongue is to steer the ship of life on a proper course (James 3:4).
Words are revealing. Jesus said this about man's language, "For
out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks" (Luke 6:45
NKJV). We often say, "I didn't mean that," when what was said poured
forth from an unclean heart via a malicious mouth. Language has a
tremendous capacity to destroy.
But words also can build up and edify. James also says, "Now the
fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace"
(James 3:18). While the loose tongue can be lethal, a disciplined
mouth can be the source of much healing and help.
In the garden of your existence, what has your mouth been spray-
ing lately?

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


Entering


School
By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Probably most children entering kindergarten in the county are
already registered at this time, but if you are new to the area, it
would be good to review the requirements for entering school.
All children entering kindergarten or transferring into other
grades from other school systems will need a medical examination
and the following immunizations:
f 5 DTP Injections
t4 Polio Doses .
. 2 MMR Injections
If your child falls into the categories listed above, it would be
good to plan to have the examination and any needed immuniza-
tions done over the summer. Most doctor's offices and the Health
Department have more time during the summer to attend to these
routine matters.
August 11th is the scheduled date for school to open. Be sure
your child is ready to begin the next year's school work without any
delays.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 1994


Capitol





ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper


The disclosure late last week by federal officials that Florida overpaid
some $76.3 million to the jobless in 1993 after issuing $300 million in
foodstamp and welfare mistakes in 1992 is going to play a big part in the
governor's race.'
No wonder thoughtful state voters have cited government waste as
the biggest issue. But getting the politician (those running and those al-
ready elected) or even the average state worker in Tallahassee to recog-
nize it as their top priority too is another matter.
They really don't get it, even with a very popular constitutional
amendment proposal staring them in the face which would require the
government to get voter approval before raising taxes.
Invariably, they argue tight budgets are impossible to trim and there
really isn't very much waste.
The largest, of course, is the estimated $1 billion wasted annually on
erroneous payments in social. programs caused, they say, by fraudulent
claims and overwhelmed state workers. There are many more examples,
of course: $41 million in turkey projects powerful lawmakers got through
the legislature without proper review or priority in the 1994 budget
alone, and the well-publicized $1.8 million state meat inspection program
that duplicates a federal program.
But for the best example, let's take the biggest state government flas-
co-the problem-plagued Health and Rehabilitative Services' $204 million
computer system that was the root cause for many of the expensive er-
rors resulting in the overpayments.
When the full impact of the news hit the fan, the top HRS boss got
out of the kitchen. HRS Director Bob Williams resigned to go back to
Florida State Hospital at Chattahoochee, his old post. He was given im-
munity at the trial of the one woman-former HRS Florida computer pro-
ject manager Judy Mitchell-and testified he didn't know about the prob-
lems until it was too late.
Grand jurors.had blasted a dozen public servants but were hindered
by statute of limitations and other legal barriers in bringing criminal
charges against them. Instead, ,the biggest fiasco in Florida's history
came, down to the one woman, a mid-level bureaucrat who was found
guilty of making a false statement for signing off to pay EDS Federal
Corp. $11.5 million for the "uncompleted" computer services.
The most damaging testimony was a quote credited to her-"PTF!"-.
translated ;to "Pay the F-er!" that angered jurors.
Then, after the Tallahassee daily newspaper editorialized to not make.
Mitchell a -scapegoat, Chief Second Judicial Circuit Judge Phil Padovano
_-(another state employee you know) acquitted her on grounds prosecutors
did not present enough evidence for the guilty verdict to stick.
Welcome to the Tallahassee beltway. "..-
The people of Florida may have stopping government waste and plac-
ing responsibility for it as their highest priority, according to the polls,
but it doesn't get much attention around here. Nothing like, for instance,
a new way to get more tax money which they call (you got it) "tax reform".
GAY SPOTLIGHT: State Sen. Ander Crenshaw, R-Jacksonville,
doesn't have to worry anymore about name recognition. He got it when-
in as unsophisticated a statement as I have ever heard-he became the
first major candidate for governor in Florida to come right out and say he
wouldn't hire gays.
Presto! Immediate fame. The big city newspapers jumped all over it in
editorials and columns, just about as furiously as they recently attacked
school prayer and a suggestion to teach American culture in the class-
room.
Ander (short for Alexander) Crenshaw certainly didn't talk out of
both sides of his mouth at the same time, which most politicians learn to
do early in their careers.
"I guess I would say.that's a-in my view-that's a lifestyle that:still
is maybe not mainstream," Crenshaw said.
SWas he uncomfortable talking about It? "'No. I jusr'laven't studied a
* great deal about...the rights and obligations, you know, of gays and lesbi-
ans," Crenshaw said, adding that he didn't know any gays.
After the hubbub next day. he said he had no intention of persecut-
ing the gay community, showing he had (at last) given it some thought.
The other candidates, of course, had those politically correct answers
handy. .
Gov. Chiles daid he doesn't ask about sexual preferences in hiring,
whatever that means. Jeb Bush said gays should not get any additional
legal rights. Ken Connor condemned gay discrimination but found their
behavior morally abhorrent, Tom Gallagher said live and let live, and Jim
Smith said any laws protecting gays should be local.

Ross Perot in 1993, hopes to prove itself in the November elections in
Florida by providing the winning margins for their choices in the govern-
or and congressional races. In disrepute lately, the.group contains may
Reagan Democrats both political parties are now courting and deemed
necessary to win. Three gubernatorial candidate forums, two in the pri-
maries and one in the general election, are planned, State Director Pat
Muth said.

Proposed Constitutional
Amendments Getting a Look-See
State officials are taking a hard look at the 28 proposed constitution-
al amendments sponsors are attempting to put on the November ballot in
the new movement to govern directly by popular vote that is sweeping
Florida and the country.
The high court has already thrown out the idea of a penny-per-
pound tax on sugar farmers to clean up the Everglades and last week
was questioning the constitutionality of the penny hike in Florida's 6-
cent sales tax to build prisons.
Attorney General Bob Butterworth pointed out that the "Limited Ca-
sinos" measure is flawed because it would confuse the voter in that it
does not seek to limit casinos in the state but would authorize a number
of them. for the first time.
Then late last week, Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho
said. his examiners found "potentially fraudulent" about 25 percent of the
first few hundred of the signatures collected in Tallahassee on the river-
boat gambling petitions sponsored by the Safe Bet for Floridians Commit-
tee.
In some cases, the same name appeared on three petitions in differ-
ent handwriting. Also, a series of names appear in the same handwriting
on other petitions.
The Florida Supreme Court reviews the proposed amendments, when
they get 10 percent of the 429,428 valid signatures needed to be placed
on the ballot. The judges don't question the merit of the proposals, only if
they deal with just one subject and if they clearly explain the language
that will be added to the constitution. I
Signatures for both the Limited Casinos and Safe Bet for Florida peti-
tions are gathered by paid collectors, making from about $1.50 to $2 per
signature. All the proposed constitutional amendment drives have paid
individuals to collect signatures, except the Save Our Sealife committee,
which is proposing a ban on big commercial fish nets in Florida waters.
Specifically, the proposed amendment that is bitterly opposed by
commercial fishermen would ban gill and entangling nets in all Florida
waters and certain other nets from near shore waters out to a mile in the
Atlantic and three miles in the Gulf.
AMERICAN CULTURE got sanctioning of a sort from the Florida
School Board Association last week with a vote against interfering in a
Lake County plan to teach it in the classrooms along with already state-
mandated courses in black history and the Holocaust.
The state organization said a local school board has a right to set
standards reflecting community views, but it took no stand on the merits
of such a classroom subject.
Pat Hart, Lake County School Board chairwoman and author of the
policy, said .the vote was a victory for every school board in the state. She
said she supported teaching multi-culturism, but felt that children
should also be taught to understand the importance of the American cul-
ture.
The policy adopted by the Lake County School Board on a 3-2 vote
states that American culture is superior to other foreign or historic cul-
tures.
Hart said "superior" didn't mean "perfect," but America had a great
culture that is important for every student to understand regardless .of'
their ethnic origins.
The board is being sued by the teachers' union in Lake County. Flori-
da Education Commissioner Doug Jamerson said the policy violates state.
law.
A PENNY SAVED: Some Floridians will be able to save the penny fee
on milk, juice, soda, shampoo and motor oil bought in glass and plastic
containers if the companies they buy them from let state environmental-
ists know they can meet recycling goals during the next two years.
Environmental Protection Secretary Virginia Wetherall said the goal
behind the advanced disposal fee was to encourage recycling and.it
worked. State law allows companies producing the containers to dodge
Sthe fee beginning July 1 if they can certilfy they will meet recycling goals
during the next-twoyears. ...
1 GAG ORDER: A Tallahassee circuit Judge last week admonished and
slapped a gag order on lawyers for talking to the media 'about a police
lineup in which a British woman identified one of theteenagers charged
in the murder of a tourist at an Interstate 10 rest stop September 4th
near Monticello.
12% RATE HIKES on average is what hundreds of thousands of
homeowners can expect when they renew their polices through a state-
sponsored insurer of last resort set up after Hurricane Andrew hit South
Florida in 1992.
Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher approved the hike, which
was half the amount requested by the Joint Underwriting Association.

Learn to Recognize Poison Oak, Ivy, and Sumac


Summer is a great time to en-
joy things like hiking and camp-
ing. But, before you go tromping
off into beckoning woods, you
should familiarize yourself with
some of the more common poi-
sonous plants. A little prepara-
tion could save you days of un-
comfortable after effects,
resulting from contact with such
noxious weeds.
Usually, we think of poison-
ous plants as species found only
in the woods. Actually, they're
everywhere. In this article, I will
describe three common poison-
ous plants-pdison ivy, poison
oak, and sumac, and tell you
where you might find them. My
information on poisonous plants
-.was provided by Extension Urban


Horticulturist Dr. Robert Black,
of the University of Florida' Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
Now is a good time to be dis-
cussing poisonous plants, be-
cause the sap of these leafy ene-
mies is most abundant during
the summer. It's usually the sap
which causes the problems. Poi-
sonous plants can be divided into
two. groups-those which cause
skin irritation, and those which
cause internal distress, in rare
cases, even death.
Many factors influence the
poisonous nature of a particular
kind of plant. The poison may be
dispersed throughout a plant, or
it may be localized in a specific
plant part, such as the roots, ber-


ries or seeds. The amount of poi-
son in a plant may vary even
among plants of the same species
depending on the time of year,
weather conditions, and the soil.
Reactions vary among people, de-
pending on their age, health, and
sensitivity to the poison.
Now, I'll describe three of the
most common poisonous plants-
those we mentioned earlier-
poison ivy, poison oak, and poi-
son sumac.
Poison ivy may have a variety
of leaf shapes. But, one identify-
ing feature remains constant-
the leaves always come in threes,
with two of them directly opposite



..::.....: .... .;.;::'. :.. .,.- '. :'. :;.,. .


each other. White waxy flowers
may be found on smaller branch-
es. These sometimes stay on the
plant even after the leaves have
fallen. Poison ivy commonly
grows as a vine, climbing into
trees, over fences, and up the
sides of walls. However, in open
fields, poison .ivy may look like a
a shrub.
Poison oak usually has the
appearance of a low-growing
shrub. As the name implies, the
slender, upright branches bear
leaflets which resemble oak
leaves. Poison oak also grows in
trees, like poison ivy. Usually, the
undersides of the leaves are light-
er in color; because they're cov-
ered with fine hairs.
Poison sumac grows as a


woods shrub, or small tree. It
never has the vine-like appear-'
ance of many other poisonous
plants. Poison sumac is often
found near swamps, and ranges
from five or six feet to as much as
25 feet in height. The leaves are
divided into seven to thirteen leaf-
lets that grow in pairs. A single
leaflet is found at theend of each
stem. In the spring, the leaves are
bright orange and velvety in tex-
ture. Later, in the summer, the,
upper leaves become dark green
and glossy, while the lower leaves
turn a paler green.
These are Florida's most com-
mon poisonous plants. But, there
are many more that you should,
learn to recognize and avoid. It's


especially important ,0 ccp
young children away from such
dangerous species. And, in case
of suspected plant poisoning, re-
gardless of the victim's age. it's
wise to contact a physician imme-
diately-especially if there are
signs of internal distress or
Shock.

A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST


.th microwave.way


Ttalian Vegetable Medley is a delicious way to enjoy a bountiful harvest of
home-grown vegetables. A plentiful supply from the supermarket will do
just- as well. Sliced zucchini and halved cherry tomatoes are colorful and
tasty with. a sliced onion in the lemon-basil dressing. The use of a
microwave oven, according to Whirlpool Corporation home economists,
makes this recipe quick to prepare. This dish would make an excellent
accompaniment for grilled chicken.
