Flood Waters Slowl
Flood waters in the Howard
Creek area aren't moving out as
quickly as previously predicted.
Civil Defense Director Larry Wells
said yesterday. "We have unusu-
ally high tides holding back the
water at its outlet at Apalachicola
Bay, delaying the time when the
River will return to its banks."
Originally, the weather ser-
vice predicted the water would be
nearly back to normal by this
week end, "but that date has now
been pushed back to approxi-.
mately July 30 for the flood wa-
ters to begonee" he continued.
Already the waters have start-
ed receding in Gulf county with,
many families, forced from their
homes by the high water, moving
back in and starting the business
of cleaning up the gooey mess of
mud and slime left by the dpeclin-
ing water level.
'We're concerned, big time,
about disease and infection, now
that the water is falling out,"
Wells said. 'The Gulf County
Health Department is on the job,
every day, now, giving shots for
tetanus 'and handing out anti-
biotics and medication to those
who need it and still can't maneu-

"Most residents of the river-front

their primary water supply and
these wells have been invaded by
the flood waters, making them
hazardous as a drinking' water
provider. People should sterilize
their wells as a precaution. We
have already had one case of dys-
entery reported. Contaminated
water is a prime source of the in-
testinal infection. There are worse
diseases which could result from
lack of sanitation in the wells and
the flood sites," Wells said.
Wells said the Health Depart-
ment is offering a water testing
service, free of charge, to anyone
who brings in a sample and gives

CLEANING UP AND
But in spite of the danger of
water-borne diseases from possi-
ble contamination, the job of
cleaning up and repair has start-
ed. A photo-taking trip to the Ho-
ward Creek area Tuesday, by The
Star revealed people with mops,
pails, rakes and carpenter tools
at many of the residences, pulling
out Isoaked carpet, tearing out
water-swollen and buckled
boards, tearing out soggy sheet-
rock and cleaning up stains left
. by the flood waters;
Some homes 'are still inac-
cessible because of water and
mud surrounding them,'making
it impossible to approach the
dwellings without a major effort.
STILL AN EMERGENCY
Wells said the situation is
still 'considered 'an emergency,
with the emergency services and
supplies still being provided to
those who need them. Wells said
the emergency headquarters is
still operating on an active basis
and the emergency services cen-
ter is still open and will remain
open until everyone can enter
their dwelling and the situation is
nearly back to normal.

The '94 Flood
THE FLOOD OF '94 will probably be remembered by that
nomenclature until a larger one comes along. During events
which occurred 'during the recent flood we have heard references
-,to the "big flood of 1929". Obviously, the ones who experienced it
feel the flood of 1929 was the grandaddy of all floods. The water.
-wds a little deeper, it came up on the road more, it isolated
more people, homes .and area. 'Spotball Barbee even bragged
that he tied his 'boat to the east side "of the Calhoun County
courthouse during the flood of 1929!
SMaybe 'the flood of'1929 had more impact on this area than
did the flood of,1994; ,we don't know. The flood of 1994 wasn't
-anything- to; ignore, so far as floods go. The Mississippi River
floods of last year may be fair comparisons since they hung on
for so long. Too, the Mississippi River is just a.little bit larger
than the Flint;" the Chattahoochee, the Apalachicola or the
Brothers.' It oughttb have more impact on its drainage area!
THE FLOOD OF' 1990 tas almost as devastating as the most
recent one, but there is one difference involved here, which had
considerable impact on 'some dwellings being flooded and not be-
"ing flooded. Every building' which has been built in the flood
zone, since 199f0, has, been required, by law, to build high
eriough to possibly escapethe tremendous damage a flood can
It took a flood for Building Department head, Don Butler, to
be able to'say, 'I tbod you so!' Knowing Butler, he probably didn't
say' .I told you so'.; He's' not the kind of fellow to gloat. We ima-
gine-having firsthand knowledge of some of the fire and brim-.
stone Butler had taken over the most recent building require-
ments-he came as near expressing the 'I told you so' retort to a
person, or two who'has castigated him over insisting they abide
by the rules, as a person could without verbally expressing him-
self. .. : .- .
BUTLER WAS EXONERATED for his actions in applying the
rules designed to make the flood insurance availability work for
everyone. As one constructing a. new home, they probably are to
'be considered' a nuisance and an urt-needed expense in the con-
,struction of a home. But, when a flood, like the one of 1929,.
1990 or even 1994 comes along, it probably made those who re-
sisted the strongest, the happiest over being made, of even bul-
lied, into building their home to requirements.
OUR MONEY IS IN FOR a face-lifting.
The faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham
Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson. Ulysses Grant
-and Benjamin Franklin. are subject to be changed in size and lo-
cation on United States currency, making it harder to counter-
According to the information we received on the matter, the
$100 bill is the favorite target of counterfeiters. We thought all
along, it was the $20 bill, since it is more commonly used in fi-
nancial transactions than the $100. We would be more prone to
closely examine the bills if a customer were to hand us five $100
to pay for an article than if he were to hand us 25 $20 bills.
\Yh'y? .W4don't knoow! It's thietsame.amount of money. but it just
sees to b'e more reasonable foria person to have $20 bills, than it
iis to have a handful of $100 bills.
BUT, WHY CHANGE THE appearance of the bills, otherwise?
Is it to make them more functional, prettier, match the color of
our eyes or to make them more appealing?
It seems American currency is already appealing enough .
to people all over the world. People will take a "greenback" when
they will take nothing else. Maybe the bills are due for a color,
change; from the familiar green to a nice teal blue, or perhaps a
shade of one of the earth tones.
I have read somewhere that the favorite color of more people
is'red! They like the flash, the clash, the loud attention-drawing
characteristics of a nice, bright red! Will the new bills be a bright
red? We have to be careful here and not make the bills too ap--
pealing. A change in color could increase the crime rate; it could,.
feasibly, start wars or; call for a raid on our monetary system by
some foreign government who wants to own the largest supply of
that bright, colorful, currency!
Our currency is not .only the favorite target of counterfeiters
-who after all, want some return' on their labors-it is the favor-
ite target of every person in the world, to have and to hold. even
those who will work to have it de-valued, do so in order to be
able to get a supply more reasonably.,
WE VOTE FOR the color to be changed to red. It would seem

Fan-Foods for the Man-On-The-Go
If you are a man like me, who has a wife that works two jobs
and doesn't have time to prepare meals like momma used to do, or
'if you' are single, then you might be interested in a few of my "fast-
food" recipes for the man-on-the-go.
Let's face it, eating well-rounded meals.is important, especially
in this fast-moving, hectic world we live in today. And eating at fast-
food restaurants won't get it; we need meals with more substance
and that ard quickly and easily prepared.
I consider myself an expert in this field, having almost died four
times from food poisoning. But that was before I was married and
learned that you must cook two-week old leftovers WELLT before eat-
ing them. Just warming. two-week old meatloaf and eating it can
kill. Believe me,' I know from experience.
Meatloaf is -too hard to prepare, anyway. Instead, try fried bo-
logna. Fried bologna has a multitude of uses when it comes to well-
rounded, balanced meals. You can eat it with scrambled eggs for
breakfast (always a quick treat when you're in a rush to get to the
golf course), or you can eat a fried bologna and tomato sandwich for
lunch or dinner: Or, you might consider a fried bologna and scram-
bled egg sandwich for breakfast. That.way you don't have to wait for
the toast to toast and you can eat the. sandwich on the way to the
golf course, saving valuable time for extra holes or practice.
The tomato in the "bologna and tomato" sandwich gives you the
vegetable you need to maintain a well-rounded diet.
Another, time saver and nourishing food is soup. Canned soup.
Did you,know that you can buy vegetable soup, as well as chicken
soups of all kinds? They now have potato soup, seafood soups, and
many other soups that can be heated and eaten within minutes,
giving you nourishment and saving valuable minutes that might
make a difference on the golf course. An extra swing in the practice
tee could make the difference in the final score.
If push comes to shove and you find you're out of eggs and bo-
logna soup, look in the pantry for a can of beans. Beans are a good
source for killing hunger pains arid will fill you up for hours. If
you've never tried a pork and beans sandwich with a glass of milk, I
'suggest you do so soon. Just make sure you don't have traveling
companions in a closed car for a long distance afterwards.
There are other easily prepared foods, to be sure. May I recom-
mend sardines for a fast, Friday lunch or dinner. Sardines are a
most under-rated food. Buy a couple of cans of sardines, a raw on-
ion, a can of pork an.d beans, some saltine crackers, garnish with
Crystal hot sauce and enjoy with your favorite beverage. And be
sure to prepare for the aftermath: Heartburn City!
(Note: if your wife is coming home or your girlfriend is coming
over that evening and you feel romantic, leave off the onions or eat
Vidalia onions only.)
SSomie other foods that deserve 'honorable mention are Spainm
(can be eaten cold or fried), potted meat, vienna sausage, and Slim
Fast (it fills you up but not out).
Forget 'IV dinners. They sometimes take 30 minutes to cook
(less in a microwave) and will make you sick if you don't cook them.
What do you think thie odds are that I'll survive until next Mon-
day? That's when my wife is supposed to get home.

For Gulf Victims
The recent floods in Gulf County, along the Apalachi-
cola and Chipola Rivers, both of which flow through the
county, have subsided, now, to the point where property
owners can begin the process of recovery of their homes
The clean-up has begun.
The process of distributing aid to those who suffered
loss is still available for flood victims, according to Tim-
othy E. Doyle of Federal Emergency Management Agency
[FEMA], this week. Dole told The Star Monday of this
week, that although the office of the disaster assistance
program had closed its Wewahitchka site, aid is still very
much available for Gulf County citizens.
Governor Lawton Chiles t'is requested President Clin-
ton to declare a major disaster f6r a 12-county area of
Florida, including Gulf county. making its residents eligi-
ble for state of Florida, Federal Emergency Management
Agency and other organizations' disaster assistance.
Doyle said that over 100 residents from Gulf county
have already applied for assistance to recover from flood
damage. "However, with over 300 homes damaged by the
recent floods, we feel there it still someone out there
who needs us," Dolye said. "People are eligible for FEMA
aid to make up the difference between insurance pay-
ments and actual damage costs. There is a number of
ways we can help victims with either'grants, low-interest
loans, business disaster loans, farm assistance and disas-
ter unemployment," he continued.
There are several numbers to call and make applica-
tion for any of the assistance programs which fit your
particular need. These include: 1-800-462-9029: or call

What Happened to Summer?
That blur that just went by' mst have been summer-and that
means that after a brief absence, I need to start bringing students
(and parents) up to.speed. August 11 is just around the comer, and'
we are slugging away trying to get ready. As we did last-year, WHS
will host an Open House for parents August 9th (Tuesday), 6:30 to

representatives to the School Advisory Committee will be elected
that night, so let's see if we can better last year's attendance (which
was the highest we've'had in many years).
Parents-please note-if you're planning a shopping trip for
school clothes. remember a couple of items. Shorts (and skirts)
length Is a problem. The handbook states that shorts need to cover
approximately 3/4 of the thigh. and each year some young ladies
have to call home to have alternate clothing brought to school. We
have to set a standard because some will continue to wear shorter
and shorter lengths, which can prove to be distracting to many.
Shirts must cover the midriff area--no short shirts-if need, a
shell should be worn beneath a shirt or outfit. For boys,, pull-over
hirts must cover the underarm area. The underarm area cannot be
exposed as in muscle shirts, etc. It is also important that no cloth-
ing display any type of alcohol, tobacco,, drug, vulgar or obscene
language or suggestive pictures, etc., or anything considered by the
administration to be in poor taste. Hats, which may not be worn in-
side the building, are governed by the same rules. If there is a ques-
tion in your mind about the dress code, please call and ask for a

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
You may recall a joke or
two based on the famous
painter's name, "Too Loose"
(for Toulouse) Lautrec. But
it's not a Joke if you have re-
movable partial dentures
that are "too loose".
After several years'
wear, sometimes they be-
come so loose that you can
lift then in and out with
your tongue. Or you may
find yourself unconsciously
jiggling your tongue against
them to see how loose they
are. The looser they get, the
more temptation it is to jig-
gle them. It not only is dis-
tracting, it can be harmful.
If your partial dentures are
loose, they aren't doing the
Job they were intended to
'do. They aren't providing
the dental support you '
need to keep your natural.
teeth In good alignment or
to help you In chewing food
If "too loose" is your
problem, there are two
things you can do about it,
with your dentist's help. You
can get a new removable
partial denture that will fit
properly. Or -you can ask
him to make a fixed denture
(not removable) that will fit
into your gums just like your
natural teeth do. Ask your
dentist about it.
to promote better dental health.

Casino Gambling Would Cost Florida Jobs, Tourists, Taxes '
Former FPC Chief Says Big Business Which Will Benefit Oni.y Casino Operators; Cites AtlanticCity AsAn Example
Thl, fall, voters could decide
an issue that would affect Flori-
da's character, 'economy and
quality of life forever. Will we re-
maint .a state' of abundant eco-
nomic opportunity and a destina-
tion for .family 'travelers from
across' the world,: or.will we take
an enormous gamble with our fit-
ture,- our economy, our public
safety and our communities?
The decision will be yours
and mine on November 8th.
That's- because casino gambling
interests are once again attempt-
I. ng to legalize casino gambling in
Florida. Twice before-in 1978
and in 1986--They tried to per-
suade Florida voters to approve
casino gambling. Both of these
times, voters overwhelmingly said
"No Casinos". Casino gambling
was a bad idea then, and it's a
bad idea now. That's why polls
show that Florida voters still op-
pose casino gambling. The bot-
tom line is that the economic,, so-
clal and human costs of casino
gambling are enormous. and ben-
efits are non-existent.
-i Since the spread of crime is
S. perhaps the single greatest threat
to Florida tourism, the crime that
casino gambling would bring to
our state is one of the most dev-
astating costs. Atlantic City. New
Jersey, went from being 501h in
America per capital crime to first
.in per capital crime after Just
three years of casino gambling.
And in the first nine months of
casino 'operations in Ledyard.
Connecticut. calls for police in-
creased 300%. If voters approve
casinos, who would have to pay
for the additional police officers
and prison beds that casino gam-
bling would necessitate?-You and
I, that's who.
So why are five separate cam-
paigns underway to legalize casi-
no gambling? The answer is sim-
ple: money. If 'casino gambling
becomes legal In Florida, casino
interests woulkiprofit immeasura-
bly. and you and I would pick up
the tab. That's why they're gear-
ing up a slick public relations
campaign designed to make us
believe that -casino gambling
would benefit Florida. But make
no mistake, if casino gambling is
legalized, the ohly winners will be
casino owners. Their arguments
for casinos are based on a set of
,fallacies. I would like to address a
few of them:
FALLACY #1: Calhios Wdikld
Help-Touim .. ...i -r-- ---- >-
O, Gambling ipere ts say that
Unless we legalize casino gam-
bling, we'll lose tourists to other
states. In' reality, casinos would
i prey mostly upon residents, and
i n most cases n people who can
least afford to gamble. A: study
commissioned by riverboat casino
advocates estimated that 86% of
riverboat casino gamblers would
be Florida residents, and 'only'
14% tourists. Casinos funnel
tourist and resident dollars into
fewer hands while small busi-
nesses that surlvve on discretion-
ary spending by tourists and resi-
dents lose money. Gambling
meccas like Las Vegas are cur-
rently trying to re-invent them-
Sselves as Orlahdo-using family-
oriented theme parks to attract
visitors. They want the image that
we already have.
FALLACY #2: Casinos Would
According to Florida Trend
SMagazine, casino jobs usually
come at the- expense of existing
jobs and businesses. Casinos
"cannibalize" existing businesses
by attracting patrons and entic-
Ing them to stay with heavily dis-
counted or free meals and drinks.
In Atlantic City, there were 40%
,. fewer restaurants 10 years after
- casinos opened than before. Re-
tail establishments and other
business also suffer as a result of
order to compete. Florida is the
fourth largest state in America.
Mississippi is not. our economic
competitor. We compete with Cal-
ifornia, Texas, New York and
L'ennsylvania-none of which
Save .legalized casino gambling. In
fact, none of the rive largest
states in America have casinos-
and only one of the ten largest
slates has legalvied casino gain-
FALLACY #4: Casinos
Would Generate Tax Revenue
This is "the arguiinent that
was used to sell voters Ihe Florida
Lottery-and' we all know that
while Florida operates a very suc-
cessful lotte'r. t11 has done little to
provide enhancement dollars to
education. Similarly, casinos
would not enhance our lax base.
and in fact the tlcxpayers would
end tip stibsiklingi them Ihrough
higher la.\es Acconling to the llli-
nois Business Review, there is
$1.50 in public spending caused
by casinos for every $1.00 in
gambling tax revenues they gen-
eraie. That's because taxpayers
are saddled with the bills for
more police, more prisons, more
regulation, more addiction treat-
ment and counseling for compul-
sive gamblers, and a host of other
The bollom line is that casi-
rIs, profit at the expense of every-
one else. Let's not gamble with
Florida's future. Don t believe the
promises of casino gambling in-
terest-look at the facts, and say
NO CASINOS in Florida. Remem-
ber that casinoganibling is illegal
in Florida, and it will remain so
unless the people of Florida vote
to legalize it.
We need your .help to keep
casino gambling illegal in Florida.
If you oppose casinos, please re-
fuse to sign the casino petitions-
that paid canvassers are current-.,
ly circulating. To -keep casinos
out of Florida, our grassroots .
campaign needs the volunteer.
and financial' support of con-
cerned individuals and groups. If
-you can help. call the No Casinos
hotline at 1-S00-8NO-DICE.
Together. we can protect our .
state from the scourge ofi casino,

Water Puts Snakes on Move
High water from the floods had snakes on the move in
the fringes around the rising waters, as these pictures

during their journey. Tommy Evans and Larry Young dis-

JouAsting at Windmills-
Florida's U.S. Sen. Bob. Graham did some sword-rattlng last month
'on Haiti, hinting thai an:invasion would be necessary to restore democra-
S-cv there. Last week. Gov. Law~on Chiles did Graham one better by recom-
Smending thie beachhead be on the 0ouih side of the island to prevent oil
spills on Florida's beaches.
; Yep. That's right. We'be got Florida, foreign policy all over the place.
After All, Grahiam'-was mn'entioned as a vice presidential candidate for
.Priesident Clint6onbef6re Wllie settled on that tree-fellow. Al Gore. So
Graham.needs a foreign policyjust in case he gels In national presiden-
tial politics again.I. Hecae up with it on one of his famous work days;
this'one as a tourist in the Dominiican Republic. an island from which
smugglers are suspected of violating the Amencan embargo against
goods going to Haiti next door.
But the Florida, cabinet? Well, it was a slow day last week and we
had three candidates for governor and one for education commissioner
-just sitting there with not much to do.
It started with'Insurance'Commissioner Tom Gallagher proposing to
ask President Cllriton to include ardiscussion of restoring democracy to
Cuba-in the Deceniber Summit of the Americas at Miami and ended with
dhiles outlining his plans to invade Haiti.
S'There's no better place to' start than In Cuba,'one of the'last remain-
,ing communist countries in the world and it is not going to be on the
agenda." .said, Gallagher., a Republican candidate for governor in the fall
Appointed Education Commissiorier Doug Jamerson, Democratic
candidate for a full, term In the post, wanted to amend the proposed cabi-
net resolution to also recommend a discussion of Haiti at the Miami sum-
.m it. : ," '
; a', Gallagher said Haiti was already' in the news and on the summit
,,:,genda, but Jamerson wanted to be certain. "Thugs control that country
a and we should restore democracy there, too," Jamerson said. "Let's in-
clude Haiti in the resolution, too." .
'Then Chiles introduced his foreign policy, replete with maps showing
Florida, Haiti and Cuba.
"I propose that we hit them on the soft side of the south coast right
here," Chiles said, pointing to the map. "Whatever the Haitian Navy has
: in scuds .or other missiles can explode south of the island so that any
spill-over or oil slicks caused by sinking vessels or hits .on the oil-rich
gulf floor will not.reach the Florida coastline."
"I'm really not that kind of a general. I wouldn't know," said Attorney
rGeneral Bob Butterworth. ,
S Maybe you should be our general and lead us," Secretary of State
.Y'Jim Smith, another-Republican candidate for governor told Chiles.
"I don't know how deep the water is there on the south coast of Haiti,
bbut I can show you some tide marks on my body.' Chiles answered.
Former Florida National Guard Commander Bobby Howell, sitting in
the audience, told spectators around him: '"Maybe I should volunteer to
help 'em out."
Gallagher's motion finally passed without objection.
-" Chiles stole his "tide mark on my body" punch line in the foreign pol-
l -icy debate from Milton Mayor Clyde Gracey. who told the cabinet earlier
he had tide marks on his body from fishing in Pensacola'Bay under
Gracey appeared before the cabinet to urge approval of a 3.1 mile
bridge that would provide a direct route from Milton to Gulf Breeze
across Pensacola Bay.
The; cabinet pulled the, issue off the agenda, probably delaying a deci-
sion until after the election in November.
"There may be a new cabinet by then, maybe even a new governor-
who knows?" Chiles said before thepote.
I had to tell Uncle Clem Red nek, over on Flat Creek In Gadsden
County,.about Florida's new foreign policy.to invade Haiti to make It safe
for democracy again. After all, Uncle Clem is one of bur greatest living
"Heck! Dey's all wrong," Clem said. 'The marines can make it safe
there and should, but dey can fergit about making it safe for democracy
agin. Agin? It ain't never been a democracy and probably never will. The
best time in dey's history was when the marines were in there before. At
least, they could work and were safe from torture and state crooks...a lot
worst ones even than the ones we have here in. our democracy which
ain't safe, either."
Capitol News Roundup
Amidst charges of unfairness and of minds already presuming guilt,
Florida State University President Sandy D'Alemberte put embattled Ath-
letic Director Bob Goin on paid leave until the Ethics Commission de-
clides if he used his position to get his house a new roof and his son a
\ In a Saturday news conference, D'Alemberte named long-time athlet-
ic department employee Wayne Hogan as the interim athletic director
and said: "It would be next to impossible for Bob (Goin) to perform effec-
Utiely...while these charges are pending."
"There's a great deal of pressure' to take some kind of action whether
it's right or wrong. We think it shows the school has prejudged the facts."
said Mark Herron,,Goin's attorney.
Saturday's action came in a spate of bad news for FSU's athletic pro-
gram since Its football Seminoles won the national championship New
It began with a May article in Sports Illustrated magazine depicting a.
hopping spree for Seminole football players at the Foot Locker in Talla-
tjassee financed by agents, and in recent months four FSU football

"As soon as we know the details (a Kansas City law firm has been
hired to investigate the episode) we'll make our move. I hope it's within a
week,'" Bowden said.
The allegations against Goin are:
-He had a new roof put on his former house at a greatly reduced
price by a subcontractor hired to help build the $96 million University
Center, including expansion of Doak Campbell Stadium.
-He influenced a North Carolina sports promoter to hire his son
Bruce while at the same time he was negotiating a deal for the men's
basketball team with the promoter-GNI/Host Events.
-He used a state aircraft eight times when a commercial airline
would have been much cheaper.
D'Alemberte said he made up his mind to suspend Goin when he
learned last week that 343 complimentary tickets for six home games
during the 1993 season were given to Culpepper Construction Co., the
primary contractor of the University Center. -
PAY RAISES: You might have missed it, but Florida legislators via a
1986 law and without debate got themselves a three percent pay hike ef-,
fective July 1 'while pay raises for most other state employees of 4 per-
cent have been postponed until Nov.'. "
House Speaker Bo Johnson, D-Milton, who is out of the country on
vacation, ordered 4 percent pay hikes for House staffers effective July 1.
Senate President'Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, said he does not intend to fol-
low Johnson's example. "All state employees should be treated the same.
-Therefore, I will give Senate employees a 4-percent raise on Nov. 1,"
The raises put House and Senate member salaries at $23,244 from:
$22.560. Thomas and Johnson's salaries went from $31.332 to $32,280
a year. The legislator raises tract the 1986 law that says state lawmakers
will receive, every July 1 whatever raise they gave career service employ-
ees the previous year.
Automatic, no embarrassing vote every year.
"I think it's inappropriate and ridiculous for us to receive raises this
way. We never even-talked about it.(in the session). It sends a bad mes-
sage,' said Rep. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee.
House Appropriations Chairman John Long, D-Land 6'Lakes, said
he tried to keep fellow members from including themselves, in the 4 per-
cent raises given to Career Service employees this year (they'll get them
next year). "I got a lot of flak from them privately, but nobody opposed
the exemption publicly," Long said.
CLINICS FLEECE STATE: Public health clinics that are supposed to
set an example for doctors, hospitals. and other care providers have over-
charged Florida's Medicaid program $3.7 million, according to auditors.
Overcharges by public health clinics ranged from $1,316 in Franklin
County to $709,551 in Orange County, audits show.
Overall, estimates are, state Medicald will :.lse"at least $200 million
this year to fraud and abuses of the system.: Losses could reach $600
"It's a matter of sloppy paperwork. They (public health clinics) obvi-
ously are not overcharging to enrich themselves." said Robert Pierce, a
Because Medicaid processes abut 100 million claims a year, the pro-
gram pays even erroneous bills, he said.
S42nd NOW: Florida dropped to 42 among the states in faculty pay at
public universities, according to a survey made by the American Associa-
tion of University Professors.
It ranked 35th last year and 33rd the year before that."It makes ius
less competitive in the national market," Board of Regent Chancellor
Charles Reed said.
FLOOD DAMAGES: Heavy rains and flooding in the wake of tropical
storm Alberto have destroyed about half of the peanut, corn, cotton and
. soybean crops in the Florida Panhandle, agricultural officials say. Florida
received $2.5 million in federal emergency money Sunday to repair roads
in 12 counties...that's on top of more than $60 million In relief President
Clinton granted on Wednesday.to Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.:
RUMORS: Curtis D. Earp, Jr., resigned as director of the Florida Ma-
rine Patrol two weeks ago in the wake of rumors about hisi conduct, ac-
cording to his boss at the Department of Environmental Protection.
"It was personal...nothing to do with illegal activity," EP Secretary
Virginia Wetherall said. She acknowledged that a July 11 memo about
unethical conduct and sexual harassment stemmed froni the rumors
that "obviously", were out about Earp. The memo was distributed to Ma-
rine Patrol supervisors. ..
Earp, who resigned without comment, was a fohner commander of
. the Georgia Highway Patrol. A 'retired colonel, he had received in his mili-
tary career the Silver Star and Purple Heart,

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Summertime and fishing increase the number of accidents with
fishhooks. Extreme care should be given to instructing young fish-
erpeople how to properly use a pole or rod and use them safely.
Wildly thrown lines can end up with hooks embedded in painful.lo-
cationsor even in an eye.
If the fishhook is lightly embedded' one should push the hook.'
through the skin, cut off the barb and then back the barbless hook;
With deeply embedded hooks, a local anesthetic will probably
be needed and medical attention is needed.
Local cleansing with alcohol or betadine should be done before
and after extraction of the hook. Apply antibiotic ointment to the
wound after the hook has been extracted.
Tetanus immunizations should be current;- and if not, a booster
needs to be given.
