Gulf County's flood victims
began to experience Just a little
bit of relief yesterday, according
to Civil Defense director Larry
Wells. 'The water started to re-
cede from the Wewahitchka area
Wednesday morning and from the
Howard Creek area later in the
day. It reached a height of a re-
ported 27.4 feet--12.4 feet above
flood level-covering everything in
its path for a mile west of the Ho-
ward Creek highway."
Wells reported that the fig-
ures released by state authorities
on river readings at Blountstown,
placed the flood waters .nearly a
foot higher than the flood .of
1990, which reached 26.7 on the
gauge at Blountstown.
WVells said the high water im-:
pacted 700 to 800 citizens in Gulf

PAGETWO THURSDAY, JULY 14,1994
.PORT ST. JOE HAS had annual fireworks displays for many
years, how. We don't really know how many years, but'it has al- .
most been long enough to become a tradition. People have come
to expect.a, fine pyrotechnic show at the First Union Park on the
shores of St. Joseph's Bay on the .Fourth. of July every year.
-Why, we.suppose we wouldn't .even have to announce it in The
Star and crowds of people would still gather around dark on the
evening of July Fourth to witness the show. ...
This tradition has failed 'to draw the first criticism in all these
- years.' 'Nothing has been heard from its performance except
praise and pleasure.
THIS YEAR,. THE City Commission logged a half .dozen com-
plaints from citizens Who didn't know what happened. They just
the knew the fireworks this year weren't as good as previous
years. The !Boonis!' were' farther apart. The shots didn't seem to9

this year. One fireman was slightly injured when a bomb burst
prematurely, going off in his face. The fireworks .are placed in a
six-inch pipe mortar to-shoot up into the air. The mortars are
placed in the ground and fireworks dropped into them and lit.
ONE OF' THOSE' mortars had its charge explode inside,
blowing the welded bottom out of the mortar and a three foot
hole in the ground. The firemen decided, then, that after all
these problems: of premature exploding bombs, a fireman injured
and a half dozen narrowly escaping injury, it was time to draw .
the activity to'a close, which they did.
The next day, the newspapers had' stories of malfunctioning
fireworks in at least another half dozen towns in Florida, Georgia
and Alabama. Perhaps they all came from the same supplier

LAST YEAR, WE KEPT up with the devastation caused by
;the flooding Mississippi River for weeks. The same situation ex-
isted. People's homes under water, dams broken, roads and rail-
yroad tracks made useless and no drinking water readily availa-
ble. Of all the disruptions caused by flood waters, the last one-,
,no drinking water--would seem to be the worst blow to man.
$ Remember Desert Storm? How vital it was that each soldier
'consumne a certain amount of water each day in order to main-
tain life and remain functional. 'Drinking water was' a real con-.

they were, they weren't as bad as the other'floods in the south,
including those in the. Panhandle. 'Gulf county people had suffi-

and themselves from the path of uncontrollable water.
Our disaster team met at noon last Thursday to make prep-
arations to meet the rising water with the least possible incon-
venience. We can be thankful for these people who offer their.
time and.talents to make all natural disasters more bearable.

There used to be a man up, in
Hopkinsville, Kentucky, that folks

himself as a psychic.
People would come from miles
'around to bring their sick children,
parents, friends, etc. to Cayce for a

When the Cat's Away
Most men never realize the stability and conformity a woman's
presence adds to a home. If a lot of us men would take time to ana-
lyze the difference, say, between our home and a hunting lodge that
only men frequent, then we would know the profound difference.
Most men, I've found, don't place the importance on cleanliness
and home orderliness that most women do. Forlinstance, when a
sink is full of dirty dishes; most men, when left to their own re-
sources, will pass them by and use paper plates until a convenient
time comes to wash the dishes. 'And that time is when we run out of
paper plates, saucers, salad bowls' and everything else that will hold

conditions have been the same here at our home with us children.
left to our own resources, Below are a few of the things we do and
don't do 0When the lady of the house is away.
*We eatsa lot of fast-food, things like, sandwiches for breakfast,
SHardee's foe.lunch and soup for supper. Why waste time trying to
.cook when we- know nothing about, it except how to eat it when it's
cooked right. Pure waste.
*Wear underclothes for several days when we run.out of clean
ones. Who has time to put a load of clothes on, much less dry and
fold them? Even if one of us.did wash, dry and fold them, someone
would have to, carry them to.the respective rooms, or we would have
to run down to the laundry room each day to get a clean pair. I
can't remember anyone- dying of dirty underwear. '
*We don't have to put up groceries like we do when she's here.
The main reason .we don't is because we only buy what we need at
the' moment and when'we bring what we need in, we eat it immedi-
ately. Who has time for shopping?,
*We sleep a lot in front of the TV, leaving it on all night. Let's
face it, once you go to sleep watching TV, who feels like getting up,
taking a shower and going to bed? My chair.is just about as com-
fortable as our bed. anyway.
*We, never shave on weekends. With HER gone we don't fiave to
look, so. presentable arid go to parties and just about no onevisits
our home. Several times people did visit when she was gone, but
they never came back unless they called first and knew she was
here.'. :: .
*We are able ,to put off unnecessary things like brushing our
teeth on a regular basis, clipping our toenails and fingernails,
washing out the bathroom sinks and picking up wet: towels off.the
floor. Why do today what you can put off until the day before she
*A few other things we can do is eat leftover food that has been
In the refrigerator for a week or long (just warm it for a long time),
put dirty clothes under the bed when they'get so high we trip over
them. leave the breakfast sandwich scraps on the table and run the
dishwasher when all the plastic spoons and forks are gone.
Like it or not. men. women add substance and orderliness to
our lives. A home without a woman's touch is just a house! But
when the cat's away, the mice will play!

Board Deals From Page 1
with former county attorney Pat
Floyd about resuming his post.
Floyd resigned as the result of a-
disagreement between he and
Commissioner Billy Traylor,
which climaxed jn harsh words-
being directed at Floyd by Tray-
lor, over three weeks ago. Traylor
castigated Floyd for, in his judg-
ment, failing to have important le-
gal matters completed by an es-
tablished deadline and vocally
expressed his ire in harsh chas-
Traylor has since apologized
to Floyd, but Floyd has chosen'
not to be re-instated by the Board
because of continued differences
As a result of Floyd's decision
and Yeager's report that 'he was
still adamant about his resigna-
tion, the Board agreed to adver-
tis6 for a replacement.
In other matters to come be-
fore the Board, they took the fol-

clation of Retarded Citizens and a
County Chairman for the March
Moore appreciates the many
people in Gulf County, who over
the years have called on him for
assistance. At times it has
seemed similar to the popular
Ghostbuster's theme, "Who ya
gonna call?" Trying to help those
who called, without, regard to
their financial ability or position
has been Moore's approach,to 'le-
gal representation. Moore states,
"Being asked by someone for as-
sistance is, in itself, a showing of
Moore's pride and joy are his

and two grandchildren. All five
children have graduated from col-
lege; two form Florida State Uni-
yersity, two form West Florida
University and one .from South
Florida University. Moore believes
their success is a result of consis-
tent discipline and compassion
within the family environment.
Moore advises. "It is in the family,
at the earliest state, an individual
must learn respect."

One of the biggest concerns

which can spread disease and

Purify all water before using
it for drinking, food preparation.
dishwashing, or brushing teeth.
Strain water containing sediment:
or floating material through a'
cloth before treating it. There are
four methods for purifying water:
*Boll water at a rolling boil
for 10 minutes to kill .disease-
causing bacteria. To improve the
taste, add a pinch of salt to each
quart of boiled water.
*Use chlorine bleach.
Household bleach is a good disin-
fectant: however, check the label
to make sure the active Ingredi-
ent. sodium hypochlorite, is
l 5.25%9. Do not use bleach which
Mix bleach thoroughly Into
the water. Let it stand for 30 min-
utes. The water should have a
slight chlorine odor. If it doesn't
repeat the dose and let the water
stand for an additional 15 min-
The amount of bleach to use
per gallon of water depends upon
the percentage of chlorine In the

1 percent chlorine--40
drops of bleach; 4 to 6 percent
chlorine-8 drops of bleach: 7 to

Food contamination can be a
major problem following a flood.
Because flood waters, often carry

ARE YOU A MAP buff? If you are, you'll enjoy this one. Ed- 1.
die NeSmith, of Apalachicola. a historian of this section of Flori- Changes In Panhandle
da brought The Star this old man of the Panhandle of Florida.
The map was printed.back in 1922, by the Rand-McNally Com-
pany, before Gulf County was even formed out of Calhoun
County. Notice the population figures printed under the name of
eaclh'town printed on the map. Apalachicola was the largest
town in the Panhandle in 1922, with the exception of Tallah'as-
.see and Pensacola. Port St. Joe old timers say Apalachicola was
the shopping center of the area back then, rather than Panama
City, which wasn't as large as Apalachicola. Panama City had
only 1,722 people in population then. Port St. Joe had only
1,510' people living here then. Wewahitchka had 247 and Dal-
keith was a bustling 20 people.
ACCORDING TO THE road legend printed on the margin of
the map, there was only one piece of paved road in this entire
pictured map of 1922. A section of Road "10" leading into and
out of Perry was paved for about 10 miles in each direction, and
a section between Perry and Fenholloway was paved. The re-
mainder of the roads were either improvedd" dirt roads or just
"improved" trails throughout the section.
Note the steamboat routes, shown by dotted lines in the Gulf
between Panama City and Carrabelle. The dots which trickle out
of the picture at left extend over to Pensacola.
The Dead Lakes are identified as the "Chipola Lake". We're
not sure when it came to be known as :'Dead Lakes". The Chipo-
la Cut-off, between the Apalachicola and Chipola Rivers, at We-
wahitchka, is not even shown on the map. The Intracoastal Wa-
terway is also not shown.

From My Garden
Thank You, Mrs. Biggs....
'The phone is for you. It's Margaret Biggs. Do you know a
Margaret Biggs?" my wife asked with a puzzled look, on her
face. "Do I know her?" I thought to myself. ."How do you forget
someone like Mrs. Biggs?"
Behind her back we used to call her "Big Red". She proba-
bly knew this or else this writer may be in trouble as you read
this. She taught high school English, speech and literature in
St. Joe for nearly three generations. In the middle 70's, when I
was one of her students, she was teaching the kids of some of
her first students. She taught for several years after that.
Mrs. Biggs called ~jtllgjm.e howrmuchi she enjoyed my col-
umn and liow pr9ud she;was of me. Nothing could have meant,
any more to me. This writer can write thanks in large part to
the refinement of the mechanics of sentence structure and par-
agraph organization Mrs. Biggs taught me in 12th grade Eng-
lish. In the 11th grade, I had her for speech. I learned that clar-
ity and brevity are next to godliness when it comes to speaking.
From time to time, people say to me, 'You say so much in your
sermons in such a short period of time." This is one of my fa-
vorite comments about my preaching. And it always brings to,,
mind images of Mrs. Biggs. She left an indelible impression
upon me in many ways.
I can still quote the lines of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales
learned in the Old English she had us memorize. Also several
'lines from Shakespeare have stuck with me also. Mrs. Biggs
opened many eyes to the wonderful world of great literature.
She is also a woman of faith. She is unapologetically a Chris-
tian. But she never was pushy about this, but neither did she
try to hide the fact of her belief in God in the classroom. She
was always a faithful and winsome witness.,
They have brought, one of Katherine Marshall's novels,
Christy, to the TV screen. It is a pretty good show about com-
mitted teacher in a backwoods, rural setting. They ought to
make a movie about Mrs. Biggs. Folks from St. Joe and the far
reaches of Oak Grove, Jones Homestead, Highland View,' and
White City can attest to the lasting impact she had on so many.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1994
by Jack Harper
Gov. Lawton Chiles decided to not really take the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Services out of the treatment of teenage crimi-
nals business like many lawmakers intended when faced with clear signs
of HRS ,ineptness-they set up a new Depdrtment of Juvenile Justice in
the last session. Maybe it is a good thing. All us good conservatives hope
Chiles named Miami Police Chief Calvin Ross, 45, to head the hew
agency and RossO picked Woodrow Harper, old chief of the juvenile justice
program at HRS, as his number two man. Both are black professionals
and good;rold'mbdels for teenage criminals who are often black without
any role models (especially male) at home.
Chiles passed 'over Circuit Judge Charles McClure, of Tallahassee,
who showed a lot of leadership in getting at some of the root problems of
juvenile crime while serving on the bench of the Second Judicial Circuit.
He was the judge some of those juvie criminals HRS was.letting back out
in the street in a matter of hours threatened to kill. He was also on the
committees that gave lawmakers the most input in setting up the new
juvenile-justice system and boot camps.
McClure hails from the small North Florida town of Madison .and is a
'former U.S. .Marine. He would have been what you might call a white
man 's answer to the juvenile crime problems and he was interested in
the governor's appointment, although he wouldn't consider the number
) It's Just ,as well. Judge McClure can probable serve the state better
as a-circuit judge than as some kind of a juvenile justice czar. At least
that is how Gov. Chiles and the Black Legislative Caucus who have his
S.ear saw it
Chiles did send a message that the state intends to get tough on'
juvenile crime when he appointed a tough cop like Ross. Not as tough a
m; message, perhaps, as the appointment of a tough white Judge McClure,
but at least a change from the'old inept do-gooders in the HRS.'
1The public-black, white, yellow, brown and purple-wants reasonable
safety on their streets and in their homes and schools-period. Juvenile
crime was and is really out-of-hand.
Ross was probably right also in appointing Harper, a respected, expe-
rienced hand in treating juvenile criminals to the second spot in the new
agency. Just being tough alone is not enough. Sometimes, miracles hap-
pen when you put kids in a situation, around adults worthy of respect
where they know what to expect and can learn to respect the rest of the
world and themselves.
That Is true. The problem with it is that black activists often: insist
the role models (like in this case) be black. Washington D.C. tried that in
its police department and ended up with a rash of crimes being commit-
ted by police officers.
FAMILY VALUES:. Folk who snicker at family values or religion as
public policy issues may be in for a rude awakening in the upcoming
elections across the country and in Florida. Fifty-four percent of a poll
taken by a 'consortium of big daily newspapers in Florida said they
'thought moral decay and family values were critical issues.
Family values were viewed just below government waste and crime as
'Issues, but above health care and the environment. Moral issues were
considered more critical than jobs, controlling growth, homelessness,
special interests, race and ethnic relations, abortion, care for the elderly,
welfare reform, taxes, prisons, water supply. roads and traffic.
The News Round-Up
The Florida Supreme Court knocked another controversial amend-
ment proposal off the ballot last week on grounds it wouldn't do what it
says it would do in a ruling sounding to some like a deathblow to the
leading casino gambling initiative trying to get on the November ballot.
The-thumbs-down ruling came on the'STOP (stop turning out prison-
ers) petition calling for prisoners to serve at least 85 percent of their sen-
-tences. It was .lcked by U. S. Sen. Connie Mack and state.Sen., Charlie
Crisp, R-St. Petersburg, who said the public wanted to stop the early re-
lease of prisoners and they would rewrite it and try again. .
High court judges said the amendment contained so many loopholes
the governor and cabinet could Ignore it if they wished. The court has al-
ready this year struck down amendment proposals that would have
taxed sugar 'to pay for a cleanup of the Everglades and banned anti-
discrimination laws to protect gays.
"I think they're trying to protect against the kind .of deception that's
going on out there," said Stephen MacNamara, an attorney who says the
leading and best financed casino Initiative by Proposition for Limited Ca-
sinos Inc. would mislead voters as well and should be struck down by
the high court too.
MacNamara represents a No Casinos group that contends Limited
Casinos' petition now under review by the court leads voters to believe it
would limit casinos when, in fact, they are being authorized for the first
time in Florida.
Florida's seven Catholic bishops scattered across the state joined the
Orlando-based Council of Churches, representing 27 denominations, and
the Jacksonville-based Florida Baptist Convention last week in opposing'
the five 'casino gambling proposals trying to get on the November ballot.
'There is historical and anecdotal evidence that casino gambling is
accompanied by vice and social evils," said the statement signed by the.
While gambling of itself is not morally wrong, it is when it interferes'
with one's other duties, or responsibilities, the statement said in citing
concerns for the impact on low-and-moderate income families, comtpul-
sive.gamblers. neighborhoods, the homeless and public morality In gen-
eral. .... .
POLITICIANS' WELFARE: Jeb Bush is the only candidate that will
npt be taking taxpayers'. money to run for governor this fall, because-his
opponents' aides say-he has already collected more than anyone else in
campaign pledges and doesn't need it; .
Bush now has raised more than $3.8.million, (more than $1 million ,
in the last'three months), Gov. Lawton Chiles, author of'the campaign
fund law that allows matching money in state dollars for candidates who
accept contribution and campaign spending limits, is second in financing.
with about $700,000 collected so far, about $425,000 of that in the quar-
ter ending June 30.
', Commissioner Tom Gallagher was the surprise fund raiser who as a
late candidate garnered some $644,000 in contributions within a month
afletLe.his announcement. If he accepts public taxmoney, he will tip that
total to more than $1.1 million, making up for his late entry into the
ra cer : ... "
Secretary qf State Jim Smith collected $405,000 in the quarter, ac-
cording to his aides, retaining about $1. 1 million for his campaign war
chest, while Sen. Arider Crenshaw came in fifth among the candidates
with a total as of June 30 of about $300,000.
Smith, Gallagher, and Crenshaw are expected to accept public fl-
nancing of their campaigns, their aides say. Ken Connor, the least known
and little financed so far Republican candidate from Tallahassee, has al-
ready announced he will accept state matching money. Connor has
allout $70,000 ini the bank and will qualify for about $490,000 in state
Supporters of public financing led by Gov. -Chiles say'the fund limits
the, amount of money poured into campaigns by special interests. In or-
der, to qualify for the matching money, candidates must agreed to a $5
million campaign spending ceiling, confine the use 6f personal funds to
$25,000Q and party donations to $25,000.
It.will be a campaign issue.
"At a time when violent criminals are being released early and teach-
ers are paying for classroom supplies out of their own pockets, it is an in-
suit to the public for politicians to take their tax dollars to fund their.
campaigns," Bush said.
"It's really a waste of public money and welfare for politicians," he
said. ..* *
IROSEWOOD: More than 300 relatives of residents who fled the black
settlement of Rosewood in Levy County in1923 are expected to seek com-
pensation from the, state, the Florida Attorney General's office said last
week. State officials are also considering whether to expedite early pay-
ments of $150,000 each to a handful of elderly survivors who escaped

100 YEAR FLOOD: Georgia counties were hardest hit last -week by
R what meteorologists were calling the worst flooding in 100 y6ars along
the Flint and Chattahoochee 'Rivers brought on by a six day deluge from
stalled tropical storm, Alberto. A death toll of 28, 31 counties declared
disaster areas and tens of thousands of residents evacuated.
This week heavier damages may be seen in the Florida Panhandle as
those swollen Alabama and Georgia rivers flush on down to the Gulf of
Mexico. Florida meteorologist Mike Rucker said waters reached their
highest levels by the weekend since 1929, but there were no reports of
deaths, a few thousand residents along the banks were evacuated and no
looting. President Clinton declared Calhoun, Holmes, Washington and
Walton counties as disaster areas. The Apalachicola River crested -at
Blountstown at 28 feet (13 above flood-stage). The Choctawhatchee River
crested at 26.5 feet, 14 feet above its banks.
'We got good warning. We're trying to stay ahead of it," said Rucker,
a specialist with the Florida Division of Emergency Management.
GOIN GOING? Although at least 10 influential boosters of Florida
State University are asking for the ouster of Seminole Athletic Director
Bob Goin. President Sandy D'Alemberte and Board of Regents Chancellor
Charles Reed say they will take no action until they have the facts from
an investigation by the state comptroller and the state ethics commis-
Accusations made against Goin in the wake of charges aired by
Sports Illustrated magazines on NCAA rules violations by football players
He paid nothing for roof work done at his home by a subcontractor
working on FSU's $96 million football' stadium expansion. Goin paid
nothing for the roof for months, but after the investigation began he paid
$5,000 for the work investigators valued at $14,893.
He used his high-level post to get his son a job with a contractor
doing business with the FSU sports department.
And he made costly trips on state airplanes, some suspiciously ap-
pearing to mix pleasure with business.
