Fourth Draws Crowd

First Annual July Fourth Celebration Attracts Large
Crowd of People Which Continued To Grow Until Dark


The largest crowd ever re-
corded for a Fourth of July cel-
ebratlon turned out Monday to
participate'in the celebration
activities and fireworks which
followed.
The celebration, held at
the First Union Park. ath'acLed
families to the fun and enter-
tainment which started at 4:00
and continued to swell until
the fireworks began at 9:15
p.m.
Cars w re parked in every
space imaglnable In the park
vicinity and along Highway 98
to Madison Street in Oak
Grove. The cars were bumper
to bumper..
Tonya Nixon. chairperson
of the celebration- sponsored
by the Chamber of Commerce
and the Merchants Associa-
tion. said the first annual af-
ternoon of celebration went off
In a fantasticc fashion". She
said the crowds were very re-
ceptive of the event, which fea-
tured games, entertainment
and food.
High winds swept the park
area, an aftennath of tropical


Fireworks Bad

Fire Chief Said Quick Fuses, Premature
Explosions Made Use Dangerous
High wind and apparently faulty fireworks ham-
pered the annual fireworks display Monday night, ac-
cording to Port St. Joe Fire Inspector Al Ray Tuesday
morning.
"The Fire Department didn't explode all the materi-
als they had on hand. After one fireman, Larry Edge,
was caught by an exploding pyrotechnic which went off
pre-maturely, the Department decided to call it quits."
Ray said.
"They had been bothered all evening by pre-
maturely exploding pieces, causing a highly dangerous
situation. Those fireworks packed almost as much ex-
plosive as a piece of dynamite. The, fuses were also
burning too quickly for the men to get safely out of the
way, once they were llt," Ray continued.
Ray and Fire Chief John Ford said the high winds
were probably responsible for the fuses burning so fast,
but faulty fireworks also were responsible for part of
the dangerous conditions. "One mortar, which holds
the pieces being shot had its load explode inside, blow-
ing out the bottom and leaving a three foot hole in the
ground. Those mortars were made of steel pipe," he
continued.


FDLE Spokesman:

"The St. Petersburg Times Didn't Get The Information
In the Story In This Sunday's Paper From Us."


Despite interest-piquing reports from area
daily newspapers, spurred by a week end story
in the St. Petersburg Times, which were circu-
lated the first part of the week. there have been
no'new developments in the investigation by
.FDLE into alleged charges of harassment by
CGulf County's Sheriff Al Harrison.
An interview with John Joyce, spokesman
for FDLE, by The Star Tuesday. revealed the
'stories didn't come from an official source and
are not to be considered as such.
Joyce answered a direct question as to
'whether the information came from his depart-
,ment or not, by saying. "No. The FDLE does not
'give out privileged Information to any source
concerning an on-going investigation."


Joyce acknowledged that the investigation
was continuing and said the policy of the FDLE
was not to comment in any way about an inves-
ltigation they are involved in.
Meanwhile suspended Sheriff Al Harrison
continues to proclaim his innocence in all the
matters he has been alleged to be involved in,
by rumor and innuendo. Harrison stated. "I
would have been foolish to be involved in these
actions which have been made up about me..
Nobody. even me. could get by with such be-
havior for a period of years in such a small ';
county where everybody knows .everybody .and
their habits."
"I am certainly not stupid!" Harrison con-
cluded.

"Alberto" wasn't much of a
stonn, as, far as storms go. but
"he' was big enough to get the at-
tention of emergency operations
along the Gulf Coast Friday
through Sunday; especially the
Northwest Florida coast.
The storm slammed into the
Destin area Sunday about mid-
morning. Accompanying "Alberto"
were heavy rain squalls and a
stiff breeze; hardly enough to gain
more than scant attention here in
, Gulf Cdunty.
The heavy surf and rising
tides Which accompanied the
stonn did the most damage to the
Panhancdle area, as It caused con-
siderable erosion of sand shore-
line.
Here in Gulf County. Civil De-
fense director Larry Wells said

the storm was centered in the

low-lying areas.

nearing their crest at about

expected to add to the rising

was a few tree linbs blown down

The storm was a welcome
sight by surf board owners, who
took advantage of the unrest by
the weather to get in some quality
surfing time.
It also provided a "dry run"

all precautions because Alberto
could be a dangerous and de-

Is It Fair?

To Play This Matter "Close To
The Vest" andExpect Neutrality?
EVIDENTLY, THE PROPOSED resolution the County Com-
mission was preparing for FDLE served its purpose before it was
ever. composed or delivered. The resolution called for an end to
all.this mystery surrounding the investigation of the Gulf County
Sheriffs office and. get on with the. search .in an expedient fash-
ion. .
"We concur with the resolution. We have been more than a
month Into' the matter, with no inkling made public about the
nature of the investigation or what the FDLE is looking for.
Whatever Sheriff Harrison's involvement may or may not'be in
this: matter, the FDLE will have to give us some information con-
cerning the case' befori-ewe can properly deal with it. This is what
the County's resolution was calling for.
NOW, BEFORE WE even know about it here at home, the St.
Petersburg Times comes up with their version of actions alleged
to the, Sheriff. We pose, a question to the FDLE, is that fair?
Don't you feel, a's we' do, that the people of Gulf County deserve
a factual report: on the subject of your investigation before they
read a' version, in some newspaper published 300 miles from
here?- "
The people of Gulf County already have an opinion about the
veracity of.the St. Petersburg T-imes, writing about occurrences
here in Gulf County. So even though the Times may spread our
'so-called dirty linen over the state, it is given scant credulity
here.
WE KNOW THE STAR has been singled out as being sympa-
thetic toward Sheriff Harrison's plight. That's because The Star.
could 'not stand by and see anybody getting the. railroad job the
Sheriff was getting from the silent treatment of the authorities. It
was a silent treatment, too! Why, the St. Petersburg Times didn't
pven have the story until it was six weeks old!
We know more'about the. O.J Simpson case here in Gulf
bounty, by official' statements, than we know about official ac-
tions concerning our own Sheriffs department. 0. J. Simpson is
in California and the Sherifis department is in Gulf County.
Isn't it reasonable to expect that scenario to be reversed?





; THE PRO CASINO folks have started playing hard ball and
wve expect that ball to get even harder and the pitch to'.become
faster, the nearer it gets to November. The proponents of the ca-
sino gambling conglomerate are now spending money in the mil-
lions, rather than the thousands to get their project approved by
Florida voters.
They know that Florida's voters have already turned thumbs
down on whether or not to allow casino gambling in the state of
Florida. Opponents of casino gambling in our state know, the
question has been defeated twice, also. The pro-casino group
also know the more times they come back and attempt to get
their tpe:-projectapproved'by 'the voters, the closer they will
come A cdeedirig.- They khow Flofida's electorate ill becomee
complacent. take the'attittudeithat casino gambling cannot gain
approval in Florida, so why vote!
Before you know it, the voices of the pros will out-number
the cons and casino gambling will become as common as lottery
sales In the state, if we don't remain alert.
THE CASINO FORCES are not leaving any stone unturned.
They spent a pile of money, paying workers to gather enough sig-
natures in Florida to get the question on the ballot: The casino
forces plan on getting this money back. in a hurry!
Casino. gambling cannot do anything except erode the life-
style of Florida even further than it has been eroded already.
Just the other day, we saw a news clip on TV, featuring one
of the pro-casino leaders and he was touting the "good" casino
gambling would offer Florida. Paraphrasing what he said on the
news spot, his statement went something like this: "We want to.
bring in casino gambling to maintain the wholesome family at-
mosphere reputation.type of vacation Florida. has been noted
" for." .. .
'THAT SOUNDS GOOD to the average Floridian. He is anx-
lousifor that clean family atmosphere to continue, for his own
benefit. '
We have just one question to pose to you: When was the law
changed allowing children entrance to places of gaining and bet-
ting? Children are still an integral part of families, you know.
The pro-casino forces brag that they have the necessary peti-
tions to gain a spot on the ballot. Let's pledge ourselves to seeing
that they get a resounding "NO" from us for their trouble.


Computers Catching A

OUR COMPUTERS caught a -
virus last week arid had us wor-
ried there for a day or two. Co-
puter viruses are virulent little E A
buggers which can nearly drive '

the machines to do a job which By
only they can do, '


I don't know how the boxes
caught the virus, but I have my
own theory. Mind you. it doesn't
jibe with what the computer doc-
tors say the problem was, but it
sounds more viable to me than
their explanation of how the ma:
chines caught the virus and how
it Is spread from computer to
computer.
Before we caught on to the
fact that one was. sick. the virus
had spread to all three of our ma-
chines and was subtly making its
way-through the tangle of cables
which link them together, toward
both the laser printers they are
hooked up to.
The symptom of the virus


was losing a page or two which
had already been set, for no ap-
parent reason. Also, one of the
machines wouldn't "talk" to either
of the printers. It was just like:it
was mad: at the printers. We
could command it to accept'the'
Information from the computer
and print it up on, a sheet of

LIKE I SAY, I have my own
idea of how the computers caught

smart people did the hiring for

chance that a student would run

"Hqw long you reckon Ruth

munching down his second ham-

I glanced in her direction. It
was impossible to guess. Shoot, I
,couldn't tell if she was twenty or

"What do yo know abut what

She let me go on and on. Most of

old one, or disinfect the area to

be lurking around, or take pre-

THE VIRUS WAS there be-
fore'we knew it. We,didn't have
any penicillin, or any streptomy-

drugs here in the composing
room. I have never vaccinated my
bird-dogs for the distemper, so I

also the fact I have never had a.

couldn't see it even if you did. I
have heard of other people's com-
puters 'catching a virus, but it.
had never happened to ours.:.
The Apalachicola Times had
computer problems a week or two
ago, but they never said what it
was. Maybe they didn't know and
they spread the virus over here in
some of their page negatives
when 'they brought them over

WE DON'T KNOW how the vi-
rus arrived and we don't know
what we did which finally got rid
of it. We contacted the computer
"doctor" at the Apple place and he
repeated some mumbo-jumbo,
sent us a "disinfectant disc" and
gave us some maneuvers to per-
form in order to get rid of the vi-
. rus. We might be rid of it now,
but we didn't see it leave.

PERMITS COST MORE
Solid Waste Director Joe
Danford informed the Board that
the permit was due on their We-
tappo land fill site and that fees
for getting ready for the permit
.this year will cost some $11,.000
for the necessary engineering and
reports.
Danford gave the Commis-
sion an alternaUve to securing
the permit. He outlined a plan
where the county could close the
site and utilize trailers they have
left from fonner operations to col-
lect the allowable waste, hauling
it to Five Points landfill, near Port
St. Joe.
"The Board nixed Danford s
idea,' advising him they thought it


best to keep the landfill' site at'
Wetappo open and operating.
Danford also .advised the
Board the U.S. Supreme Court
has ruled they cannot give an ex-
clusive solid waste collection con-
tract to any one company. 'They
have ruled your exclusive con-
tract with Argus Services, illegal,"
he said.

--Tid-Bits-

A July 4th was a big day for us here in the Panhandle. We have
a lof more to'be thankful for than just our independence, don't we?
Anyway, Happy Birthday, America! I'm just happy to be here..
A Speaking of America, isn't it wonderful to live in the greatest
nation in the world? Sometimes I wonder about all the freedoms we
have and what they are doing to some people. President Clinton has
set up a "Clinton Defense Fund" that you and I can contribute to
(up to $1,000 per person, please) to help pay his lawyers for defend-
ing him against Whitewater and sexual harassment charges. Can
this, be the president of the United States?
A The first tropical storm of the season, Alberto, missed .is by
that much, thank goodness. We (my wife and I) were out of town on
business as Alberto made its way toward our area, and we rushed
home in the middle of the night only to see some rain and a little
wind. Thank goodness. We, who live in the Panhandle haven't been
so lucky in the past.
A Michael Fay, the Singapore Vandal, has returned home after
being convicted of his crimes, caned and served three months in
jail. He is now in the process of collecting his reward(s). Last Wveek
he appeared on Larry King and there ,is talk of a movie contract and
big bucks, ofjwhich he (Michael) says he won't keep any of the mon-
ey. He is going to contribute it to a fund to help travelers in foreign
countries. who are accused of crimes they didn't commit, like the
one he admitted to. "Crime doesn't pay" is as outdated as home-
made biscuits! (Read about Tonya Harding.)
<' I'll be glad when all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed in
the fiasco we are experiencing here in Gulf County, won't you? It's
wounds like this that can cause scars that will never go away. What
a shame for all of us.
o On the business scene, Wal-Mart is opening a "Super Store"
in Panama City Beach. Let's see, in the Panama City area, there are
three Wal-Marts and a Sam's Club. There is a Super Store opening
in Chipley, a bird's flight to the north and now another Super Store
opening soon in Panama City Beach. Are these people trying to. cap-
ture ALL the retail trade, or what?
& Yes, our house is for sale, but don't get your hopes up: We
ain't leaving town. We did that one time before and couldn't wait to
get back. Now that we are back we are going to stay. Now that most
of our children are free to leave home, we thought a house on the
beach somewhere would be nice. It's going; to be awfully difficult
trying to adjust to another home after all these years. That is, if we
sell this one. .
A There are those who think O.J. Simpson is innocent of mur-
dering his ex-wife and. her friend. I would give him the benefit' of
any doubt if there was another ,suspect and all of the evidence
didrin't point toward him. But; it's not for you' and I to decide. If will
be left up to a court.in California and it's my opinion that if the trial
is not held in another state, O.J. will walk!
TEXAS CRASHES LEAVE 31 DEAD! Fourteen were killed in
one wreck and 11 in another. The rest were killed in other separate
crashes. What a tragedy! e .
The article I read said that 42 people were killed in traffic acci-
dents.on Texas roads on Christmas Eve. 1975, and on December
19.J981, 41 people were killed on that state's roads..Texas is not a
safe place to travel, in my opinion.

"Beeline Highway" which ran between Port St.'
Joe and Apalachicola.
STATE ROAD 4
The 'old road is shown as Road "4" on the
"map of Florida Auto Trails and Roads" of that
day. The road was a trail of dirt, sand, and
mud-holes. The fence, just barely in the pic-.
ture, at right, is Jim McNeill's father's cow pas-
ture.
The photo was taken at the Franklin-Gulf
County line. The sign says: "Franklin County
line. Welcome. Apalachicola State Bank. Bee-
line Highway."
The old road and its designated number,
was bound to confuse motorists [one of which
, can be seen coming, in the background of the:
photo]. It was designated Road "4", From the
spot near Money Bayou where the road veers
north, it was designated as both Road "4" and
Road "6" all the way to just south of Marianna;
where it joins present-day Highway 90, labeled,
Road "4", on an old map NeSmith showed The'
Star.
NeSmith said it',took five to six.hours in a

er, a distance of some 95 miles.

Social

News...


The Social Security trust
fund that finances retirement and
survivors benefits for approxi-
mately 37 million Americans will
be able to pay benefits well into
the 21st century, according to the
1994 Annual Reports of the So-
cial Security and Medicare
Boards of Trustees.
At the same time, the trus-
tees reported for the second con-
secutive year that the disability
insurance trust fund will be ex-
hausted in 1995, a situation re-
quiring immediate action. The
trustees recommend a realloca-
tion of tax rates between the two
trust funds to remedy the short-
range deficit in the disability in-
surance fund. Such actions have
been taken in the past to address
shortfalls in one fund without re-
quiring increases in the overall
tax rate.
The report notes that this
year alone, the combined Social
Security trust funds will take In
about $377 billion, and outgo will '
total about $325 billion.
Long-term projections ,
Estimates show that, based
on the most likely assumptions,
the combined OASIand DI trust
funds will continue to grow for
the next 25 yearsand to then de-
Sdine until the funds are exhaust-
ed in 2029.
The trustees noted that there
is ample time to address long-
term deficit issues. They recom-
mended that the Advisory Council
on Social Security review the fi-
nancial status of the program

Chicken with Fruit


Chicken with curried fruit is loaded with flavor and it's easy to prepare,
,using only a single skillet. The tangy-sweet combination of pitted prunes,
fresh fruit and lightly curried chicken breasts is a satisfying entree with each
serving containing only 274 calories and more than 3 grams of dietary fiber..
The National Cancer Institute recommends eating five or more servings
of fruits and vegetables a day. Add chewy-sweet California prunes to fruit
salads, pork and chicken dishes or enjoy them straight from the.bag. It's
an easy and delicious way, to get your 5 a Day.


Chicken with
1 tablespoon margarine
4 chicken breast halves,
skinned and boned
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons dry vermouth or
dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)


Curried Fruit
1/2 cup pitted prunes
2 cups diced peaches, pears
and pineapple, and grapes
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon toasted slivered
almonds or walnut pieces
(optional) .


* In large nonstick skillet melt margarine over medium heat. Add chicken;
saute until light brown on both sides. While browning chicken, stir curry
,powder into margarine. Add vermouth and prunes. Cover and simmer.over
low heat 5 to 7 minutes until-chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken
to plates and keep hot. Add fruit and brown sugar to pan juices, bring to
boil and cook until syrupy., Pour over chicken. Top with nuts, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.

The trustees conunued to ex-

out of balance." This trust fund
pays for inpatient hospital care

time outdoors during the summer
months, the risk for accidental
poisonings related to insecticides,
plants, snakes, insects and other
Florida critters and agents in-
creases. Educate yourself and
your family on potential poison-
ing hazards and poison preven-
tion tips," recommends Dr. Jay L.
Schauben. FPIC/Jax director.
Common summer poisoning
hazards are listed below. Any par-
ent or, guardian who suspects a
poisoning exposure should imme-
diately call the poison center at 1-
800-282-3171 statewide.
The services offered by the
center reduce overall medical

*Apply to all exposed skin. To
apply repellent to the face, spray
on hands and rub onto the face,

*It often takes an expert to
tell a safe mushroom from a poi-
sonous mushroom. A mushroom

area In which it grows.
'ALL wild mushrooms ingest- ,
ed should be considered poten-
tially dangerous.

Washington, D.C., June 3p --
'America's largest conservation
group is celebrating the best
newsso far this year on the envi-
ronmental front: the.comeback of
this country's national symbol,
the bald eagle
S-There is good- news in our
environment, something we can'
be proud to celebrate on Indepen-
dence Day." said Jay D. Hair.
President of the National Wildlife
Federation. 'The American bald
eagle is coming back from the
edge of extinction."
Just before the long July 4th
weekend began, federal officials
proposed that this success be
recognized formally by reclassify-
ing the bald eagle from "endan-
gered to "threatened" in 45 of
the lower 48 states. "WVe support
this proposal under the Endan-
gered Species Act." Hair said.
The bald eagle was once com-
mon enough In North America
that Congress adopted the bird as
the national symbol of the United
SStates. One estimate suggests
there were 250.000 bald eagles in
North Amneerica before 1800. By
the turn of the century, though.
biologists had begun to see a de-
cline among bald eagles.
Pollution reached toxic levels
in ecosystems throughout North
America by the middle of this
century. Bald eagles were harmed
by the contaminants building up
in the food chain, especially DDT.
Meanwhile, people were altering
bald eagle habitat throughout
their range in the lower 48 states.
'This conversion of nesting
and wintering habitats often left
bald eagles without a home or re-
sulted in the killing of eagles by
electrocution, poisoning and
shooting," Hair said. "In 1964. a
survey found fewer than 500
nesting pairs In the lower 48, and
the population was still declining
rapidly."
Today, it's a different story.
Bald eagle populations have in-
creased every year since 1986,
and a 1992 U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service survey found evidence of
3,747 nesting pairs.
Thanks to the hard work of
volunteers, thanks to the banning
of DDT and, of course, the pas-
sage of the Endangered Species
Act, the bald eagle is coming
back. Hair said. '

If you've noticed, that
your child has swollen gums
that tend to bleed when he's
brushing, this could be an
early sign of peridontal dis-
ease and should be treated
without delay,
Peridontal disease is an
infection of the gums aid
other tissues that support the
teeth. This is much more
common in adults but no less
serious when it happens to
children. It is caused by
plaque or bacteria that
forms along the gum line,
making the gums swollen
and tender. Left untreated,
the plaque will harden into
calculus or tartar, increasing
the decay area and infec-


tion. This causes the gums to
separate, from the teeth,
leaving pockets for the fur-
ther'spread of decay and in-
fection. Eventually peridon-
tal disease attacks and'
destroys the bones that sup-
port the teeth, causing the.
affected teeth to loosen and
fall out.
Protect your child's
health with regular dental
checkups and seek treat-
ment whenever a sign of
dental health problems, such
as bleeding gums, appears,

Warm, Damp Weather Makes Mole Crickets Become Active


rAnrVa .I


S On warm evenings you may
have noticed some strange look-
ing, six-legged critters crawling
around beneath nearby street
lamps. Because of their odd ap-
pearance, you've probably tried to
avoid these insects. Actually, you
had nothing to fear. They're
harmless to humans. But, they
can be lethal to your lawn. I'm
talking about mole crickets.
Mole crickets live in the soil
and ,feed on plant roots. Their
front legs are short and stout-
. well adapted for tunneling. Their
velvety skin is light. brown, and
the adults which reach a length
of about one-and-a-half inches,
have prominent wings folded over
their back.
Each spring, mole crickets
lay in the. soil. The ,nymphs,
which hiath in about two weeks,
look like: the .adults, except
they're smaller and lack fully de-
veloped wings. These nymphs
mature very gradually, reaching
adultloeod: the following: spring.
Thus, there is only one genera-
tion pir year.
Although mole crickets live
mostlN below ground. the :adults
are readily attracted to lights. Es-
pecially in '-.he:; spring, and
throughout the summer. At .these
times, they're 'comnionmoly found
under street lamIps, electric signs,
and similar illumination.
Mole crickets are most active
at night, especially after a rain or
irrigation, and when the tempera-
ture is about 70 degrees fahren-
heit. Under these conditions, they
make burrows in the upper inch
or two of the soil. And, occasion-
ally, they'll partially emerge to
gather bits of food. These surface
burrows, which range from about

one-eighth to three-quarters of an ture mole runs. This burrowing
inch in diameter, look like minia- loosens the soil,-causing plants to


dry out. However, the most seri-'
ous damage is caused by the
crickets feeding on the roots of
lawn grass.
Mole crickets can be con-
trolled by either sprays or baits.
Apply sprays or baits when the
overnight temperature is expected
to, be 70 degrees fahrenheit or
higher, and be sure the soil is
moist. If necessary, sprinkle the
area for about an hour before ap-
plication. Moisture aids soil pene-
tration of sprays, and with baits,
it attracts the mole crickets to the


surface to feed.
To insure even pesticide cov-
erage, it's best to treat no more
than 500 square feet at a time.
Mark off the area to be covered,
and apply half the recommended
amount evenly, back and forth in
one direction. Then, turn at right
angles and apply the rest. After
spraying, irrigate for about 40-60
minutes. But, do not water after
applying baits.
Baits are .most effective when
the fast-growing nymphs need a
lot of food-from late June


//


through September. But, the
sooner baits are applied after
damage is noticed, the more effec-
tive they'll be. Baits may be ap-
plied by hand, but be sure to
wear rubber gloves. For sprays, a
garden hose attachment applica-
tor is recommended-one that re-
quires 15 to 20 gallon of water
passing through the hose to emp-
ty a quart jar.
For specific pesticide recom-
mendations, check with your gar-
den center, or County extension
office.

Gun Registration'


r Meets Resistance

Uncle Clem Redneck Vows He'll 71
Never Register His Shootin' Iron
Uncle Clem Redneck over on Flat Creek In Gadsden County was fired
up on Freedom Day this week. He almost had Aunt Minnie Tennishoe,
home from St. Petersburg for the holiday, agreeing with him that guns
aren't the problem in America today, stupid, it's the criminal. -
The qualifying word is "almost". If the two ever get together on gun
-control In this country, professional burglars and robbers are going to
have a hard time making a living.
"How bout that new Metro Miami law that lets dam taxi drivers tote a
pistol right out In front of everybody now?" Clem tore into Aunt Minnie
when she got off the bus for the July 4th family shindig at Flat Creek.
"They've been carrying them all the time. Now they're just legal.
When are you going to get a permit to carry your gun?" Aunt Minnie shot
back like a bolt of lightening.
"Ain't neverl...ain't never!" Clem hollered, then settled down to reason
seriously with Aunt Minnie.
"What about that feller Gary Kleck. crimeologist over at Free Shoes
University in Tally? He sez the number of people who successfully defend
themselves with their guns every year is more than the arrests made for
"' violent crimes and burglaries," Clem said.
"Yes, but sensible people like this Kleck fellow have permits for their
guns. BUT NOT YOU," Aunt Minnie shoots back.
Flinching a little. Ole Clem quoted "facts" he had gathered' from a
Reader's Digest 'article he "readed" that said by far most handguns used
by felons are, stolen, borrowed, or -bought privately. Only two percent of
the 65 million or so privately owned handguns are used in crimes, and
only abut one-sixth of those are purchased from a gun or pawn shop.
"Iffen you stop the sale of weapons like the nitty-witty do-gooders are
trying to -do. it'd just disarm the honest folk," Clem said. He quoted
'facts" from the article that said people who defended themselves with a
weapon were less likely to lose property in a robbery or be injured in an
. 'assault than those who did not defend themselves. "It sez burglars don't
break Into American homes where they knows dere are guns as much as
do in Europe where the governments have disarmed homeowners," Clem
said.
'True. We shouldn't disarm the good citizen, but we've got to control
the number of guns carried illegally, and that means YOU GOT TO REG-
ISTER YOURS." Aunt Minnie said with her big winning smile spreading
across her face.
"Ain't neverl Ain't never!" Clem hollers. "What do you think we're
shooting off these fireworks fer today...the God-given right to bear arms
jest like it sez in the constitution...that's whyl"
Then, calming himself down a m.ite, Ole Flat Creek Clem went back
at it:
"How bout that town out in Riverside, Washington, where dey're re-
quiring every homeowner to have a gun and plenty of ammunition in the
house?" asked Clem, with an innocent smirk on his face. "Dey're showing
the state of Washinton dey don't like no gun control law."-
Then Aunt Minnie had what Clem calls a conniptionn fit" and she
doesn't even smoke. :,-. :,;
"That isn't going to work, you old fool. What we civilized people-who
live in cities need is for law enforcement to get illegal guns out of the
hands of criminals. We don't live in Riverside, Washington (population
290) or Flat Creek (00004) either.
Law enforcement has the technology now to detect a firearm from a
distance and people wouldn't even know they were being scanned." Aunt
Minnie said. warming to her subject.
'They can also place microphones on telephone poles in the cities
and zero in on a gunshot sound and be on. the scene in minutes...and
they're about to finish developing a 'safe gun' that can only be fired by
the legal owner." she said.
. "But for any of this to work, YOU'VE GOT TO GET A PERMIT FOR
..-YOUR GUN." she said, sitting down prissily in the rocking chair Uncle
Clem always brings for her to sit In for the July 4th fireworks.
"Ain't never Ain't Never!" Uncle Clem said while grinning like he real-
ly didn't mean it.


"Zero Tolerance" May be
Implemented Soon In State Schools
A new State rule on violence in schools called "zero tolerance" may be
implemented soon, and a North Florida school teacher who quit after she
was badly beaten by a student in June said she hoped it would put class-
room discipline into the hands of parents and teachers where it belongs.
The new "zero tolerance" rule was announced by Education Commis-
sioner Doug Jamerson at the Florida Cabinet meeting last week. He said
his first priority was to make sure that students who attack teachers.
carry weapons or repeatedly victimize other students are sent to alterna-
Live schools.
Jamerson said he was forming a task force to find better ways to
crack down on school violence, including changing the present law which
says teachers have only whatever disciplinary authority their school prin-
cipals delegate.
"It doesn't belong in the principals' hands. As parents, we need to
take back our schools." said Cobb rfliddle School teacher Judy Birtman
of Tallahassee. She suffered a concussion, a chipped tooth, black eyes.
bruises and cuts in a savage attack by a 14-year-old student who had a
criminal record. Including arrests for a strong-arm robbery and aggravat-
ed assault. In the incident, another student in the class chanted. "Kill
her. kill her".
Birtman said she had been informed her attacker had been released,
pending a July 27 hearing on whether he will'be tried as an adult.
"I don't think those children...with multiple arrests...need to be
mainstreamed into a regular classroom." she said.
Birtman said she was not going to return to teaching this fall, but
she was glad to see some action may be taken on school violence. "It
should have been done a long time ago," she said.
Leon County's Sheriffs Captain Charlie Brooks said the schools al-
ready have 'zero tolerance" for violent offenders. The first time they dis-
Srupt a class, they are arrested." he said.
But, Mrs. Birtman said teachers were given no disciplinary authority.
Teachers and parents should decide what conduct merits detention, sus-
pension, expulsion, or assignment to an alternative school, she said.
Some change in school violence policy is likely, thanks to the upcom-
ing election of education commissioner, but it's not clear whether it will
mean automatically taking any student arrested oTff campus for violent
criminal acts out of the regular classroom.
PRISON MONTH: That's what Corrections Department officials are
S calling July in which $273 million in new construction on 14,665 beds is
to begin in Florida, most of it in the upper peninsula from Lake to Es-
S cambia County. :
The reason? "North' Florida looks at prisons differently than South
Florida. The people there view them as ari economic-benefit and have an
S advantage in that there are fewer environmental obstacles to overcome in
Sa prison-building program," said Randy Denver, Chief of Facility Services
with the DOC. ..
SAmong the July projects listed by Denver are:
-At Milton in Santa Rosa County, a new 1,318 bed prison to go un-
der construction in less than a week at'ari estimated cost of $32 million.
-At Wewahitchka. 1.183 new beds to be built at a cost of $26 mil-
lion adjacent to the Gulf County Correctional Center.
-Hamilton and Wakulla counties will also see construction begin on
fnlew prison facilities costing $26 million each for 1,183 new beds in each
county;: '


S. -Additions to existing prison facilities costing about $3.5 million for


Congressman Peter Peterson.
D-Marianna. recently introduced
the Comprehensive Long-Term
Care Act of 1994, H.R. 4632,
which was carefully drafted as an
amendment to the leading health
care reform proposals that are
currently pending before Con-
gress.
The Comprehensive Long-
Term Care Act of 1994 consists of
a new home and community-
based care program as well as im-
provements to the existing nurs-
ing home program. These im-
provements will help reduce the
cost of health care while insuring
that those needing long-term care
receive quality care.
"In my view, the current pro-
posals don't provide a 'satisfactory
long-term care plan that'main-
taining cost-effectiveness while
Insuring broader and better care


for the elderly and the families of
those with a catastrophic illness
or' Injury." Peterson said.


In Appreciation
The American Red Cross Gulf

tend their thanks to the following

FMP HEAD QUITS: Col. Curtis Earp, head of the Florida Marine Pa-
trol, said he had an indication it Was time to go when he quit last week,
but he wouldn't give any other reason why he gave up the post hp 'has
held since April, 1992.
His boss, Virginia Wetherell, secretary of the Department of Environ-
mental Protection, would. not say why Earp, former commander of the
Georgia-State Patrol, quit either. ,
"I'm sure he had his reasons., I think he has done a good job," she
said. ... .
, JUVIE NOMINATION: Two black candidates-Miami Police Chief
,Calvin Ross and Health & Rehabilitative Services Deputy Services Deputy
Secretary Woodrow Harper-are on Gov. Lawton Chiles' short list to head
the -new Department of Juvenile Justice created by the Florida Legisla-
ture in its regular session this year.
'Also on the list is a White candidate-Leon Circuit Judge Charles
McClure--who was active on the committees working to set up the new
justice system for teenagers.
Tallahassee Rep. Al Lawson. a Democrat and former head of the Flor-
ida Legislative Black Caucus. has said McClure is doing a great job as
circuit judge and Chiles should appoint a black candidate to head the
new department.
NO HEALTH CARE BILL: House Speaker Bo Johnson, D-Milton. has
proposed the creation of a joint committee to draw-up a health care bill.
but Senate President Pat Thomas. D-Quincy. said it would be a waste of
time until Republicans indicate they are willing to compromise.
Johnson made the proposal to Thomas last month after the Legisla-
ture adjourned a special session without taking any action on Gov. Law-
ton Chiles' health care reform package.
NO GENDER BIAS: The Florida Supreme Court ruled late last week
it was unconstitutional to exclude potential jurors based solely on gen-
der. The judges overturned the'conviction and death penalty sentence of
Michael Abshire In the murder of Stacy Ann Willetts" near St. Augustine
in 1991 on the grounds the prosecution Improperly removed women from
the jury pool simply because they were female.

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Outdoor

:* Safety

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Bicycle helmets reduce the risk of head injury by 85 percent
:-and brain Injury by 88 percent. Despite this, helmets are used by
Sless than five percent of child bicyclists.
*An estimated 65,819 persons needed hospital emergency room
treatment in 1989 for injuries related to skateboards. Seven out of
ever' 10 skateboard injuries were to children under 15. Children
who ride skateboards should wear helmets and protective padding
to prevent injury. '.
'*Each' year. .over 12.000 individuals, more than half of them
children, sustain fireworks-related injuries that require hospital
treatment. According to the AAP,. families should attend public fire-
works displays rather than purchase fireworks for home use. The
AAP is working with government agencies to achieve a ban on all
home-use fireworks. ,
*Nearly 10,000 children 15 and younger were hurt by lawn
mowers (both ride-on anw nd models). Injuries included
deep cuts, loss of fingers and toes, broken and dislocated bones,
and eye injuries from flying stones. The AAP says children under 12
should not operate walk-behind mowers, and'children under 14
should not operate ride-on mowers.
*Approximately five to 20 percent- of children who'are hospital-
ized for near-drowning sustain severe, permanent brain damage.
The AAP recommends that swimming pools not be installed in a
backyard until children are over five years of age. If a pool is al-
ready in place, the AAP advises installing a fence around all four
sides with gates that have self-closing latches placed higher than
children can reach. ,
*In 1989, about 200,000 children age 15 or younger were treat-
ed in emergency rooms for playground-related injuries. The best
way to prevent serious head injuries is to provide a safe surface be-
neath swings, slides and other equipment. Safe surfaces include
sand (10 inches deep). wood chips (12 inches deep) or rubber out-
door mats .
*More than 300 children a year in the U.S. die as a result of
choking. In the past. objects such as safety pins and coins were pri-
mary causes of choking. but today food is responsible for most inci-
dents. Hot dogs are a favorite cookout item. but because they are
round and can easily lodge in the throat, the AAP says they pose a
choking hazard to children under four. Avoid serving hot dogs to
children under four unless you slice them lengthwise, then across.


they have so much at stake in ed-
ucation. Their support and exper-
tise are always welcome.
I The NREA is the oldest na-
tional organization of its kind in
the United States. It traces its ori-
gin back to 1907. Through the
years, it has evolved as a strong
arid respected entity with a mem'-
bership that is interested in
maintaining the vitality of rural

tional laboratories located at sev-
eral sites across the nation.
NREA members are often

Looking for Space


Program Assistance


Gov. Lawton Chiles recently'
sent letters to Florida's Congres-
sional Representatives requesting
their support for fully funding
NASA's proposed Space Station.,
The letters were timed to precede
this month's vote in Congress
that will determine the future of
the Space Station and the entire
U.S. space program.
According to the Governor,
the Space Station will provide a
multi-billion dollar boost to Flori-
'da's economy, maintaining and
increasing employment in the
state's crucial space industry.
Cancellation of the 'program
would have a broad, long-term
negative impact for both Florida
and NASA reducing the require-
ments for Space Shuttle launches
and shrinkingthe aerospace in-
dustry that comprises much of
the state's manufacturing sector.
"Florida has invested signifi-
cant resources toward increasing
space-related economic and edu-
cation development," the Govern-
or wrote. "The space industry has
been targeted for its high growth
potential and for its compatibility
with the State's environmental,
academic, and tourism goals. The ,
Space Station will serve as the
cornerstone of Florida's space ac-
tivities as we enter the next cen-
tury.'"
During similar -deliberations'


last year, 22 out of 23 Florida
Congressional Representatives
voted in favor of the Space Sta-
tion and the program survived by
only a single vote. This year's
Space Station vote is expected be
just as close, meaning Florida's
Delegation will once again play a
vital role in its survival.

What Does It Profit. .
Our golf game had been rained out. My friend sat with me
on his mother's front porch., We were talking about church life,
when he said to me "What does It profit a man if he gain the
whole church and lose his own family." These words were
shared, with me-ironically--on the same day that O.J. Simp-
son was arrested. I could not help but think of what my friend
had said, but also Jesus' original words, 'What does it profit
a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul"
(Matthew 16:26). '
O.J. Simpson was one of my favorites. He was the most
graceful runner I have ever watched carry the football. He was
the perfect combination of grace, speed, and power. He excelled
in college, winning the Heisman Trophy, but also in the pros,
setting standards for rushing yardage. With football stardom
also came celebrity status, His boyish grain, handsome looks,
and .winsome manner transcended racial barriers. Everyone
liked O.J. It seemed "'The Juice" had it all.
- But as we always learn-even the brightest stars cast dark
shadows. New Year's Day, 1989. police were called to the Simp-
son home because of a domestic dispute. He was subsequently
charged and convicted of beating his wife. But even after this,
O.J. still did commercials, sideline commentary, and basked in
the limelight, emerging with his stellar i-reputation intact. If re-
cent allegations- prove true, perhaps it will be said the the real
O.J: Simpson began to be known. There is a twin-faced duplici-
ty which is in all.of us. That gap between public perception and
our private selves is often wide. Onrily the redemptive grace of
God can bring the two into closer conformity.
O.J. was apprehended. after a lengthy chase televised na-
tionally. This once stalwart athlete was taken into custody
whimpering and clutching a picture of his family to his chest. I
really, hope the indictment of this tragic hero proves to be a
mistake. The rest of the story is yet to be told. How sad-a man
who had it all, one who had nearly gained the whole world, may
end up a modern example of one who did not heed our Lord's
words. We would do well. to fill in the blank for "whole world"
with what is of paramount importance for each of us.
What does it profit a man if he gains the
S blut loses his own soul? Or, what shall a,
man give in exchange for his soul?
