Clean-Up!

Pile of Flood Debris Growing Daily
at County's Landfill, More to Come
4Debris from the flood clean-up is piling up fast at the
county landfill site, just north of Port St. Joe.
"It's piling up big time, now, with clean-up in full swing
in all flood areas," Larry Wells, Civil Defense Director, said.
The County commission has placed trailers in every flood
location to collect the clean-up debris with monitors on
-hand to see that only flood related materials are placed in
the trailers. The county public works trucks are pulling the
trailers to the landfill site for burial. The flood debris is kept
.separate from other debris in order for the county to collect
,disaster aid money for handling the material.
This mound. of debris was barely a hump at the landfill a
week ago; but it..has grown to a mountain of monumental
proportions in thi past week and is still being enlarged eve-
ry day.,
Public' works superintendent Bob Lester said-he had no
idea how much. debris was created by the flood. 'With' this
much, already on hand this soon after clean-up'started, there
is a heiapl" he said.

The request for Gulf County
to. Join in the movement came
from Denton, Texas. where the
commission has passed a similar
resolution and is now calling on
other counties for their grassroots
support.
6 The state of Texas already
has resolutions approving the
measure from 159 of its counties.


School Starts!!

Accompanied by Signs of Relief;
Along with Much Gnashing of Teeth
To the delight of the administrative staff and the chagrin of
the students, the school plant work is finished to the point, t
where classes can be safely held in'all buildings in Gulf county.
Up until the middle of last week, there was some.doubt that con-
tractors would be far enough along- on changing lights in eveiy
school building in the county and replacing air conditioner ma-
chinery and duct work in Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe high
schools for classes to begin.
p The biggest worry was the air conditioner project. There was
no air conditioning in either building last week. There was no air
conditioning in either building Monday of this week! Superinten-
dent Walter Wilder told The Star yesterday. "As of right now.
there is cool in the building. I felt it!" he said, indicating that
school could begin in comfort.
WORK NOT FULLY COMPLETEb
Wilder said, "Neither building Is 100% completed nor will
they be by the time classes begin tomorrow [Thursday]. The
work still to be done is all located in the halls and will not inter-
fere with classes."
The Superintendent said there are still some few instances
where air conditioning duct work still must be tied in, but he
said most of t ~e work remaining to be done is on changing out
light fixtures i the hallways.
SThe lights re being changed to upgrade the illumination in
the rooms and replace the fixtures with more energy efficient re-
" ceptacles. The change-over is expected to offset the expense In-
volved in energy savings over a period of just a few years.
The. air conditioning machinery is being changed after nearly
25 years of use. The machinery was being changed due to age
and energy requirements.
EVERYTHING ELSE READY-SET-GOl
Wilder said that every other aspectof the school operation is
'ready to operate. "We' have a full faculty of teacher-s. Our sup-
plies are in the building and everything is in place," he said.
The school had to cancel its annual open house 'for parents
this year because of the work going.on in the building. "We're
getting on with the really important aspects of school, however;
'the learning program for the students,'" he continued.
SWilder warned students to take caution' on the school
grounds, however. 'There are still piles of debris and constmc-
tiori trash around every building. Students should take caution
,when they are outside, and avoid these areas."


The measure calls for allow-
ing voluntary prayer activity. in
public schools. The, request front
the Texas county 'is calling 'fdr

Positions
Five candidates have
qualified to seek election
to two Commission posts
which will be voted on
September 8, according-to
City Clerk Tweda McGlon.
Incumbents Earnest
Morris and Olivia Landry
are seeking re-election' to
Commission posts I and II.
Opposing Morris are
Harold Armstrong and
Mark Yoder. Landry has
Ben Nunnery as her oppo-
sition.
Landry became Wewa-
hitchka's first female Com-
missioner last year in a
special election to finish
the term of Robert Na-
tions, who resigned. She is
seeking her first full term
on the Commission.


No One Hurt In This Surprise Stop


Mike Burkett, his mother-in-law Jean-
Jones, his daughter Kelly. and son Bucky
ponder the possible damage done to Mrs.
Jones car last Thursday afternoon, shortly
after Mrs. Jones was struck by a second ve-


hicle attempting to pass, just as she was
turning into the Burkett's drive at Simmons
Bayou. Mrs. Jones' vehicle ended up, nose
first, in a deep ditch filled with water. There
were no injuries reported.


Claims Filed by Richters

Workman's Compensation Asked for Damage Payments


Secretary of State Candidate In Whistlestop


Ron' Saunders, a Representative from
Key West running for the vacant Secretary
of State position for the state of Florida,
was in town Tuesday afternoon for a meet-
ing with several local citizens who gathered
for coffee and a greeting from Saunders at J.
Patrick's Restaurant. Saunders said he
brought a "small county resident's outlook


to Florida government" and said he hoped
he could count on the support of the small
counties. "Our needs are different from the
larger counties and have been largely ig-
nored," the candidate stated. Saunders said
he was committed to enhancing the quality
of life for all the citizens of Florida and pre-
serving our historical heritage.


The Gulf County Commission
took the official position of having
no active involvement in the
worker's compensation claim filed
for the late Linda Richter nor her
sister-in-law, Janie Richter.
Unofficiallyv. the members of
the Board claim the claim filed by
Janie Richter is inaccurate be-
cause she "didn't work eight
hours a day, 40 hours a week".
Interim Sheriff James Coats said
Janie Richter also worked as a
Jail officer for the state for some
of her lime in the office. Coats
said it was possible but unlikely
she was a full ume employee of
the county during the months on
which she is basing her claim.
Linda Richter's claim was
filed by her surviving husband.
Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl
Richter and 15-year-old daugh-
ter, it was revealed late last week.
Richter's claim presumed
that his wife was murdered as a
result of cooperation with the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement, or that she killed her-
self fearing reprisal. retaliation or
Insult as a result of cooperating.
"In either case. her death
stemmed from her job." Richter's
attorney, Steve M. Watkinsof Tal-
lahassee, claimed.
The claim seeks up to
$100,000 in death and other ben-
efits under state worker's com-
pensation laws. Linda Richter
was a clerk in the Gulf County
Sheriffs office at the time of her
death.
At first, the death was ruled a
suicide. Later it was declared to
be "uncletennined".
Janie Richter is the wife' of
Ray Richter, currently employed
as captain in the Gulf County

Practical?
MILITIA IS COMING to Gulf County, if recent action by the
Gulf County Commission becomes reality. We will all be mem-
bers whether we wish to or not. Since the word "militia" is a
pseudo military term, we suppose we can all say we have been
.conscripted, drafted, into the service. But, what. is its purpose?
During the early days of our nation, we suppose the militia
was later superseded by the National Guard. The militia was
week end warriors, citizen soldiers, defenders of the nation
against attack, instant soldiers, if you will. Militia didn't get
much training, only the opportunity to serve as canrion fodder
for the country. You could say the militia was a body of men
used to plug up a gap with a living organism which was to serve
until the cork, molded for the job and equipped to stop a leak
with expertise, would arrive.
BEING A RABBIT in an experiment doesn't strike us as be-.
ing too desirable a position. The word "militia" comes across to
us as something experimental, something expendable,' some-
-thing designed to slow the progress of an enemy.
Our Commission wishes to adopt the measure proposed by
Santa Rosa County's Clayton Maypoles, to allow our people to
skirt any possible gun restriction law which may come down the
pike, taking advantage of wording in the Constitution, by being a
:member of'an organization specifically allowed to own guns by
That document, in name only.
We are not a liberal; really we stand on the opposite end of
the spectrum to liberalism. But, we too,'are opposed to the un-
bridled, availability of automatic assault weapons. The law says
we must limit our 16-gauge shotgun--designed for game hunt-
ing-to hold three shells. Why shouldn't that same requirement
be made of weapons designed for nothing but the death of peo-
pie? .
WE SEE NO PRACTICAL reason for persons in the United of
:States of America to own such obvious instruments of death as
.assault rifles unless he is bent on using them against people, or
for illegal purposes.
We understand, too, that the ban of assault rifles and auto-
matic weapons is seen as a-foot in the door to total ban or regis-
tration of all weapons by big brother. This is something totally
unacceptable for people in a "'free" nation with rampant crime.
We think the only.thing which keeps us reasonably free from
criminals, is our ability to own, possess and use protection in
the shape of a .45 magnum;.


Getting Prepared

SO, WE HAVE KIDS starting to school and politicians com-
ing calling all about the same time. It's officially "be kind to kids
and politicians" season. They have an equally tough and impor-
tant job to do.
In a way they are related. We're going to. be both pleased and
displeased with the outcome of their efforts.
SBut, in both activities, we need to be involved as both par-
ents and citizens. This is.an important season, following a win-.
ter of just keeping our head above water with our responsibili-
ties and a summer of inertia which immediately followed winter.
It is now time to become alert, interested, involved. knowledgea-
ble. and ready to do our part.; :'. :
THE KIDS ARE starting to school, as early as today. They
are returning to the classroom to prepare for their future. Be-
cause of this situation in their lives and because we all want the
best possible life for our children, we need to become involved,
big time!
Hardly a one of us can sit idly by and allow our children to
gO down the societal drains simply because we didn't care
e.pough to see that they get a good education; as good as possi-
bl). It is up to us as parents to cajole, urge, plead, or put-the
fear of God into our kids if they don't perform at their highestC
-.level in the classroom. Whatever it-takes, the end result and
Credits are worth it!
WE CAN HELP PREPARE for our future also. We can find
out all we can about the candidates running for office this year,
right here in Gulf county.
Don't take it for granted that you know their capabilities.
Thlk to their employers, neighbors, people they work with. It's al-
ready a foregone conclusion that each and every one of them will
tell you how great they would be in the job. Ask another party.
Old Joe may be a special friend 'of yours or somebody else, but
still not be worth a toot at governing your public affairs. He can't
help that, but you can.
Public servants all draw too much salary now. It's up to us to"
see that we get as much quality for the money we pay them as
possible. Selecting on ability and not likeability is the best way
of doing it.

bunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Tending Our Own Rows


"'" -




IThe summer of my twelfth
year Dwight Eisenhower was deep
into his second term. Fidel Castro
Swas just taking over In Cuba.
George Jones topped the country
charts with "Window Up Abo've',
and the Vice President of the
United States was showing off
kitchen appliances to Nikita
Khrushchev. I was oblivious to all
of it, Now, I had heard of those
new Edsel automobiles that were
out-but I hadn't seen one and


didn't really care to .
Baseball. That's where my
summer started and ended. And
what a season! The White Sox
were actually ahead of the hated
Yankees, and the Dodgers, In just
their second season in L.A.. were
challenging Milwaukee in the Na-
tional League. My Cardinals were
not out of it either-at least, in
my heart, they still had a chance.
Listen, If you'd asked me about
John F. Kennedy, you'd a'got a
blank stare-but I could tell you
where Curt Flood and Alex Gram-
mas like to eat after the game. We
all knew that Ken Boyer was
Cloyd's little brother and St.
Louis had this wild throwing roo-
kie right-hander that we didn't
think had a chance. His name
was Bob Gibson.


Baseball wasn't a game with
me-It was a way of life.
and I played It. too. Just like
Willie, Mickey, and the Duke.
That was my. last year-in Little
League. My big year! I was the
star. I was leading everybody in
home runs, batting averages, sto-
len bases. .
"Daddy." I leaned on my hoe,
he turned back, sweat pouring off
his face, "Daddy, I need to stop.
I've got to pitch tonight. I'm get-
ting blisters on my hands... ."
He looked out across our cot-
ton field as if he were estimating
the amount of work left and the
time it would take to get it done.
We grew most of the, corn for the
hogs. We ate the beans, turnips,
tomatoes, radishes, rutabagas,
and okra. But cotton-cotton was


our money crop. If the weeds got
part of it. ...
I was chopping one row, Dad
was working his usual four, may-
be five, and he was way ahead of
mel He straightened up to give
his back that refreshing pause
and looked me eyeball to eyeball,
"Son. that baseball Is important--
but It ain't necessary,!"
We hoed 'til near 'bout game
time.
Baseball is still a way of life
for me. When the sun comes up,
it's got stitches on it. I took my
first wife to St. Louis lor our hon-
eymoon. We saw four games in
three days.. I broke her in on sta-
dium hot dogs and seventh in-
ning stretches. We named our
children after ball players.
I have had the privilege of
seeing Stan Musial hit a home
run over the 355 sign in right
center in old Sportsman Park. I
saw Willie Mays on that same
field. And Warren Spahn. And
Red Schoendienst. And Ted Kius-
zewski. And Duke Snider... you
talk about a field of dreams!
In Atlanta Fultpn County Sta-
dium it was Hank Aaron, Pete
Rose, Willie McGee and, of
course, Dale Murphy. If you were'
having a rough day it was always,
nice to flip over to TBS and watch
Dale bust,one. If it was really a
tough day, you could absorb
yourself in the game, get away for
awhile.' Hey, that's an outlet that
we all can use.
I once sat in old Comiskey
Park and watched Nolan Ryan
pitch to Carlton Fisk. That stadi-
um was built in 1910 and Shoe-
less Joe Jackson, once patrolled
the outfield there: The go-go.
White Sox from my summer of '59
won the pennant and almost the
World Series. .Al Smith, Jim
Landis and company had that old
place rocking. .They tore Comis-
key Park down in 1990. Progress.
I cried.
Baseball watching is manda-
tory at our house. Supper table
discussions center3around Wade
Boggs. Kirby Puckett. Will Clark
and Delon Sanders. We don't
know any other way. You can't
have summer if you don't have
baseball.'My wife even watches
the games!l
And now. we brace for the,
strike. Un-American. It would
seem so. Unlawful. It should be.
And what about Matt Wil-
liams, Jeff Bagwell, and Ken Grif-
fey, ,'Jr.? They got a chanrce'at
home run records! And Tony
Gwynn could hit .400!
S I was about-half-mad. They
can't stop! What 'are we real base-
ball people going to---
I saw a sweat-stained face
from the past looking over his
"field of reality", "Son, it's. impor-
tant-but it ain't necessary.'
We'll all just get bn with our
hoeing.
Respecifully .'

Another Tale Told About That


TODAY IS THE first day of
the new school year, so I and all
other columnists. are obligated to
write an interesting, nostalgic col-
umn about when we were chil-
dren and our summer vacations
came to a close.
If I were Kesley Colbert, I
could reminisce with total. recall,
my first day of school. If I
couldn't recall it, I could spin a
yam you and everybody else
would take for the gospel truth ..
f I were Kes!
j could tell you about my 'first
year in school, in Shamrock,
Oklahoma, in a two-story sand-
stone building surrounded by ball
fields. I could tell you about my
across-the-street neighbor start-
ing to school for the first time the
very first year I did. The only dif-
ference was, she was starting as
a first grade teacher and I was
starting the first grade.
If my memory was as good as
Kes's, I could also remember my
summer [and winter] playmate


and best friend who lived down at
the other end of the block. He
didn't want to go to school. His
grandmother [with whom he
lived] had to come get me to talk
him into coming out of hiding in
the woods and reporting for class.
There I was, a psychologist at
age six!
IF MY MEMORY were as
good as Kes leads .us to believe
his is, I could remember some of
the good times I had in school.
From the fights, to the incessant
game of "tops" and marbles and
the recess gatherings at the ball


field.
We played ball when I was
kid in school. We even played b
when the summer came and
,were out of school. We played b
all the time. When we were
playing ball we were roaming t
woods looking for prolific hickc
nut trees, black walnuts, peca
and possum grapes.
School cramped my 'st'
when it came time to report
class, but it was something whi
had to be 'endured.

STONEWALL, MISSISSIPPI-It always happens to us when
we're on a trip, or so it seems. My wife and I were traveling to
Stonewall for a short visit with her mother and father. We pulled.
into a quik-stop for a coke when she heard it.
"Sounds like we have a hole in our muffler," she said. '!Don't be
silly," I replied, "this is an almost new van. That was a'truck you
heard."
But it wasn't a truck. It was the muffler, just like she said. I al-
ways hate it when it's just like she said. She never lets me forget it.
"Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday," I said, 'Tll get someone
in Stonewall to fix it the first thing in the morning."
"If I were you," my father-in-law said, "I would take it to La-
Boone's in Quitman to have it fixed. He did some work for me a
while back and he did a good job and was very reasonable, but
you'll have to call first. He works by appointment only."
The first thing Friday morning I placed the call and explained
my situation. Me being from out of town didn't seem to impress Mr.
LaBoone, nor did the fact that I told him he had been highly recom-
mended by someone. "I've got an opening at noon and one at 4:30
-p.m." he said; ''Which one do you want?"
I told him I would take the one at noon, thinking I had better
get the. early one just in case he ran into trouble. Mr. LaBoone;
didn't talk like'a man who would enjoy working overtime, especially
on Friday afternoon.
From past experience and not knowing how much the muffler
and installation would cost and allowing that we had .a headlight
that was out and needed replacing, I decided to stop at. the bank in
Stonewall and get a check cashed. At least I would have money to
pay the bill and Mr. LaBoone probably wouldn't take an out-of-state
check, anyway. I figured high on the muffler and headlight, -then
added $100. My father-in-law was with me and I had no problem
cashing a check for $300. .
Quitman is a small town located about ten miles south of
Stonewall. It's smaller than Port St. Joe. but larger than Stonewall.
if that tells'you anything, Highway #45. that runs from Mobile to
Meridian, runs right through the business district of Quitman. Me-
ridianis the largest town in the immediate area and it ain't no met-
ropolitan city, by no means.
1Mississippi has a lot,of small towns.
LaBoone's. Service Center is located on Hwy. #45, about two
blocks from the cut-off road that goes to Stonewall. It is a tin build-
ing that has "GOODYEAR" written on the front, but has been par-
tially scraped off. Over part of it is a sign that reads, "LABOONE'S
SERVICE CENTER". I had to cut down a dirt road that runs beside
the building and enter from the side. There is one car rack, an open
space with a counter to the left, behind which stands several wood-
en shelves stocked with an assortment of parts, most of which are
mufflers.
There were three chairs in the open space. two of which were
occupied, and a standing fan that was turned on "high". It was a
hot, sticky,'Mlssissippi day.
I arrived early; ten minutes early. to be exact. When I got out of"
the van and walked up to the two men sitting in the chairs, one
looked, at.me and said. "You must be the Campbell feller from out of
town?" When I said I was he looked at the van and said, "That looks
like .a real expensive job there."
"Well.",I .said, thinkingg I had told myself.so,.,"I certainly- hope.

"Well." he said again, "I'm on my lunch hour and I ain't goin' to
start on it until rioon: That's what I told you on the phone." He ate
two more peanut butter cookies, drank the remainder of his Coke.
brushed off his pants, and started on the van.
"Yes sir," he said as he worked on the van. "this one's goin' to
be expensive." I asked my father-in-law how much money he had
on him, just in case.
When CliTff LaBoone finished with the muffler, he installed the
headlight and then went to the counter and started writing the tick-
et. I held my breath!
"There you go." he said when he had finally added the ticket on,
a calculator. "And here's another ticket to show you I didn't over-
charge you," he said, pushing another ticket out beside mine. The
total amount was $57.25. I couldn't believe itl
Would you like to guess what that would have cost me if I had
had it done in a small town in Florida, say on 1-10 or 1-75? I say it
would have been closer to the amount of the check I cashed.
Mr. Cliff LaBoone is proof that there are' still a lot of honest,
hard-working people in the world. Mississippi has many of them
within her borders.

LET ATTORNEYS HANDLE
Officially considering the
matter at their meeting Tuesday
evening, the Commission took the
position of leaving the legal mat-
ters to their insurance carrier,
the Florida League of Cities, who
handles the county's workers'
compensation coverage.
The ..board unanimously
agreed to leave the dispensation
of both requests for payment up
to their carrier, saying, "That's
what we pay insurance premiums
for". ,..,, .
Chairman Warren Yeager ap-
pointed administrative assistant
Larry Wells as the county's con-
tact with the insurance carrier for
both cases.

morrow and ned 'to get this done

A few questions were asked
concerning the cost of the project,
with Coats replying that the paint

proximately $500. The Board was
holding up on the ceiling project

When the discussion finished,
however, the Board had agreed to

Port St. Joe High School
Band Program
For the past few years, the band program at Port St. Joe High
school has declined. This Is a situation that can be turned around
with the support of parents, students and community Interest. We
all want this to be the "Band of Gold" once again that made the
whole community proud. WE NEED YOUR HELP.
If your child plays an Instrument, please encourage him/her to
join the band. I know it is disappointing to be involved in such a
small band. But, if all who play will participate, we could have a
much larger one.
Due to scheduling conflicts, the marching band may only be
able to meet after school. This 'is an excellent way for your student
to earn an additional credit toward graduation and a college schol-
arship in addition to learning a musical skill that continues to give
pleasure long after the school years are just memories.
Also. If you have a child who is entering the seventh or eighth
grade, please encourage them to enroll in a band class at the new
, middle school.
Thanks for your support,
Mitch Bouington

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM







Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
> .
All of us have known children who compete fiercely with a
younger or an older sibling. This competition may stem from a per-
ceived or real inequity In treatment of the children within the fami-
ly. Parents need to be careful as they handle children, being sure
each child gets the attention and care he needs.
The groundwork for sibling problems usually begins when a
new baby enters the family and the older child feels displaced. Eve-
ryone Is "oo6ing and aahing" over the new baby while the older
child is ignored. The older child has been the center of attention,
but now feels displaced and upset. The problems that develops are
usually with bowel and bladder control, behavior, and sleeping.
With a little thought, parents can make a point of including the
older child. When parents exclaim over the new baby about how
cute and precious everything about the baby is, they can go on to..
comment "just like you when you were born".
Friends of the family who bring baby gifts can be asked to in-
clude some little something for the older child. ',
Often, if there has' not been too much reactiofa with the birth of!
Sa new baby, parents will assume all is well. Months down the road, .
as the baby begins to develop more of his own personality, prob-
lems may develop with the older child. He needs explanations and
understanding. Equality in handling is necessary. Each child re-
ceives according to his need.
There has to be some advantage to getting older. Adults recog-
nize this and adjust. Small children need some tangible recognition
of their status. For example, if the baby is taking a nap one parent
can take the older child to the grocery store. This happens all the
- time, but parents forget to say to the older child, 'You are older and-,
get to go with me to the grocery store. The baby is little and has to
stay home and take naps."
The older child can sometimes be given a later bedtime "be-
cause you are older". The advantages of being older must continual-
ly be stated.

on Ban the Nets
Dear Wesley:
I would appreciate your pub-
lishing this letter in the next edi-
tion pf THE STAR.
I urge everyone to take the
time to become fully informed be-
fore making their decision con-
cerning the proposed amendment
to ban gill net fishing in state wa-
iy ters.
The proponents have present-
re ed a very one-sided case, which-
taken on fage value-can-be per-.
suasive. It has been my experi-
ence that once you hear the facts
and give them thoughtful consid-
eration, you will come to the con-
ast, clusion, as I have,, that the pas-
sage of this amendment would
er not be in the best interests of the
m. people of Florida. Well thought
,out regulation of our fisheries
k' .based on sound research is nec-*
essary and good; but, in my opin-
ion, this amendment does not
meet either of these criteria.

-Collecting Trains Satisfying


Hobby, iSay sOlenn Hess


Almost every man or boy is
attracted to toy trains and the KI-
wanis had that interest titillated
Tuesday at their regular meeting
when Glenn Hess, Panama City
attorney, displayed his hobby be-
fore the club members, attracting
many admiring eyes. His hobby
just happens to be toy trains!
Hess had several trains he
had collected over the years, at-
tending toy train shows, auc-
tions. and sales. He is really into
the activity of collecting and hav-
ing knowledge of toy trains.
Hess said the trains were the
most popular toy of the nation
prior to the '50's and early '60,s,
when "Slot Cars" were introduced
and took over some of the popu-
larity from the trains. "The trains
are coming back," he declared,
with stores, shows, catalogs, and
meetings, all over the nation dedi-
cated to toy trains.
'Toy trains differ from model
trains," Hess declared. "Toy t-ains
are to play with: model trains are
built giving faithful attention to
accuracy of parts. You can take a.
picture of a model train and not
* be able to tell the difference from
a picture of a real train." he said.
The most popular American
toy trains, were, of course, made
by the Lionel company. Others of
almost equal popularity for differ-
ent reasons were made by Ameri-
can Flyer. and Marx. Lionel's
trains were the most. expensive
and usually thh ones which last-
ed for the greated length of time.
Hess had trains made before the
turn of the century. which still
work.
He said he got. into trains
when his father, a railroad buff
himself, gave him his -first train
for Christmas when he was five


years old. "Now, Christmas isn't
Christmas to me unless there are
some electric trains running on
the floor around the Christmas
tree!" Hess said.,


The speaker said collection of
trains isn't cheap, but it is one of
the most satisfying hobbies he
can Imagine. "All my kids are also
into enjoying toy trains." he said.

Eddie White of the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission's
Division of Wildlife, said one of
the most dramatic changes in the
new definition of antlered deer.
"Under the new regulation,
deer must have '., .one or more
antlers at least.Jlve inches. ,in
length visible'above the" hairline,'
to be legal game during antlered
deer hunting seasons," White
said. "Deer with antlers less than
five Inches long are considered
antlerless deer and will be legal to
take only during periods when
taking of antlerless deer is al-
lowed. That applies to public
lands."
Beginning this year. Florida'
has no open season on black
bears.
\ Deer dog training season in
the Northwest Zone (Oct. 29-Nov.
17) will start 28 days later than
in the Central and South Zones
(Oct. 1-20).
Persons who plan to hunt on
wildlife management areas or
wildlife and environmental areas
should study the individual areas'
regulation summaries and are
maps before taking to the field.

Hunting Will Continue

OnWildlife Refuges


No hunting programs on na-
tional wildlife refuges will be halth-
ed this fall, U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service Director Mollie Beattie
said recently.
"I wish to clarify this situa-
fion for the many sportsmen and
4-omen who have become con-
-Verned by inaccurate reports that
the Fish and Wildlife Service is
planning to end hunting on na-
tional wildlife refuges." Beattie
said.
"The Service must continue
with its review of refuge funding
and compatibility issues, but will
not be making any final decisions
,,ntl late this year," Beattle said.
Therefore, we will not be halting
any refuge hunting programs this
fall. Any changes I propose to
make In refuge public uses as a
result of our funding review will
be submitted to the Congress for
review according to the rules of
the appropriations process. In ad-
j dtion.' we' still Involve the states
Shd the affected public use of ref-
uges." Beattle said.
"I want to emphasize that the
Fish and Wildlife Service has not
changed its long-standing policy

Are Child's Teeth

On Schedule?


Children's teeth are some-
what like trains or airplanes; if
they don't arrive on schedule.
you (or rather your child) may
be In for a problem. How do
you know If the permanent
teeth are replacing the prl-,
maries on schedule? Here's'
the "ballpark" timetable for
you to use as a reference.
Between the age of 7 1/2
to 10, he should have four
permanent incisors In front as
well as primary canine, first
and second molar, and a
permanent 6-year molar on
each side. This gives him a to-
tal of 12 teeth In each dental
arch.
By the time he's 12, he
should have lost the primary
(baby) molars. The perma-
nent premolars should have


worked their way through his
gums to replace them. So
should the permanent canine
teeth. The last step is for all
four 12-yearnd molars to
emerge behind the 6-year
molars. This should happen
between the ages of 11 and
13. -
There is no exact "date"
when all permanent teeth.
should be In. But there is a
normal schedule of events. If
your child is not "on sched-
ule", there may be a problem.
You'll need a dentist's help to
correct it.

Apalachicola Bay will not pro-
duce any-more oysters for.about
a year,,.Jim McNpill told the Ro-
tary Cl.pb Thursday.
S'iThe"-bundance- "of 'water-
.coming "into' he bay from the
flood .up-river has changed the
salinity so drastically that over
90% of'those 'oysters which were
there are dead,'" McNeill said.
He said oysters in the Bay
would have recovered around Oc-
tober' f they merely been dam-
aged by high water, but the huge
excess has virtually wiped the bi-
valves -out in the East Point area
and 'reported a, "kill" of about 90%
in all the summer leases, which
were located just west of the St.
George Island bridge. "It's the
winter bars which were complete-
ly wiped out," McNeill said.
The oyster population from
about 13 Mile. west to Indian La-


goon, appear to be surviving, but
they can't be harvested at 'the
present because of a' high bacte-
ia .count. "Hopefully, they will be
--given-the-green light- for harvest-
ing by October." the.speaker said.
Tentatively, we can look for
fresh oysters in the' area, being
shipped in from Louisiana, but
even that isn't certain, McNeill re-
vealed. "The food and drug agen-
cy is looking at all oysters in the
Gulf of Mexico ahd may ban all of
the shell fish from being con-
s'umed raw." according to McNeill.
At any rate. McNeill said local
,oyster lovers may look for oysters
to be back on the 'market by Oc-
Cober, "But don't. look for any
half-shell oysters or others for
raw consumption any time soon,"
he warned. 'The oysters you see
on the market after October have
a more than even chance of com-

"Evei s6.o there will' be any

cause of the higher cost of out-of-

Gleanings From My Gardei


Deadly Replay?
The headlines of the Pensacola, Florida, newspaper were
bold-DEADLY REPLAY. Here we go again. Another doctor who
performs abortions was murdered. Another man, the doctor's es-
cort, was also killed, and the escort's wife wounded outside a
Pensacola abortion clinic. The media frenzy has started once
again. The local papers are full. The TV coverage is continuous.
As in the previous episode, when Dr. David Gunn was shot and
killed, experts are making commentary, public officials issue
statements, and voices on both sides of the abortion issue
scramble to make their case clear. Attorney General Janet Reno
promises help arid a full-scale investigation. And I fully expect
another provocative statement from President Clinton about
stronger legislation.
Where were all these people when Pam Colson died? Just
over a month ago, Pam Colson had an abortion ini a Pensacola
Clinic. What followed might also be termed a DEADLY REPLAY.
This one started within the sterile confines of a clinic, not .in the
fenced parking lot outside. Instead of coming from a shotgun
blast of an extremist protester, this double murder was executed
by a trained physician. A tiny life was snuffed out before he or
she ever saw the light of day. In the process, a young mother's
uterus was perforated and an uterine artery was lacerated. Al-
though Pam Colson was bleeding heavily, this young mother of
two other children was released to be driven some 150 miles
home by friends. Ms. Colson never made it home. Some 26 miles
short of her destination, she was taken to a Panama City hospi-
tal. But it was tbo late. She died from excessive blood loss.
These deaths did not count much, at least in terms of media
coverage. Instead, it was last page. synopsis of the Metro section
of the Mobile (AL) Press Register. In one news story, a represen-,
tative of the National Organization for Women, however, said of

had been left at his home, he saii that if he had caught those
who left the pamphlets; "I would have held them atgnpoignt til the police arrived. If they pulled. weapons, I, wouldhave held
them for the 'undertaker." It seems Dr.,Britton knew the risks!
But does "knowing the risk,' mean you deserve to'die? I certainly
hope not. ... '
And a case could also be mrade'th-at a doctor's life rust be
worth more in our society than that of an unborn child and a
young mother. On the basis of media'scrutiny,. have wenot said
that an unborn child isexpendable tissue and a young mother is
just an interchangeable part of our system, and a doctor is -the
most important of the three? The Biblical prospective is quite dif-
ferent. All life is a sacred gift of a Sovereign Creator, even the life
of a doctor who- performs -abortions.; The Psaln mists'-said long ago,
"For You formed my inward parts; yrucover'd"'rhe'fin my moth-
er's womb. I will praise You, for'I 'am fearfully and wonderfully
made" (Psalm 139:13, 14). These words apl to all.'not just to a
privileged few. Tvo wrongs don't.make a right, let along three'or
more. Pam Colson, her unborn child, Dr. John, Britton, Mr. Jim
Barrett, and Dr. ;Peter 'Gunn all possessed a sacrament called life
which was tragically taken from them. On Judgment Day, an ac-
counting will have to be given to; One who is the 'giver fall life.
Then thete will be no excuses permitted. Somehow, we must find
a way to stop this insanity by our attitudes and actions find
ways to make the headlines read ALL .LIFE IS SACRED! Until
'we do, I ani afraid that we will witness other DEADLY REPLAYS.

Sen. Dol! s Health. Pla'


U.S. Senator Bob Graham
has joined 37 organizations rep-
resenting the interests of Amern-
ca's elderly and disabled includ-
ing the American Association of
Retired Persons, the Natiornal
Council of Senior Citizens. afio
the National Council on Aging, 10
opposing the health care plah
proposed by Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS)
in early July. .:;'
At a press conference held
July 19 with other DemocraUti
senators, Graham said Dolels
plan limits its long-term care',
prescription drug coverage and
funding for programs for the eld-


Kelley that our school would re-,
ceive $250 from 'Burdines for'
"quality education and for givirg
educators the chance to excel".
Positive Action Schools -

The three elementary schools
in'Gulf County will be incorporat-
ing a new self-esteem program in
their schools: Positive Action. In
an in-service at PSJES- teachers
were fired up to begin this pro-
gram. With strong results around
the country, rising test scores.
;and positive remarks' from teach-'
ers and students, we feel we are
going in the right direction.


early.
Graham-has been 41ghting'Tfor
long-term care coverage in a na-
tional health care plan. "The Pole
bill contains no funding. nio
home-and community-based long
term care program. and only mi-
nor changes In the tax provisions
,for' long :.term care insurance,"
Graham said.' '"
',: Graham added thai prescrip-
tibn drug coverage' must also be
included in a national prograih.
Approximately 85%'of ithe' elderly
.use at least one prescription ried-
icine during the year. Dole's pro-
posal, not to cover prescription
drugs. means the elderly "will be
left to carry the' burden of high
prescription' costs," Graham said.
Graham' also expressed his'
- concern that Dole's plan takes an

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper

"Zero Tolerance"


In Public Schools
"Zero tolerance" is a catchy sounding title for proposals to require
public school officials to automatically expel for a year or send to alterna-
tive classes any student who brings a gun or drugs on campus or com-
.miits an assault on anyone there.
Catchy, but not as good, once you think about it, as "school-based
management", which would allow teachers and parents to decide who
gets a second chance. Or better yet, "school choice", which would allow
tax money to follow students to the best ,schools in the area, whether
they be public, private, or religious.
The Florida Cabinet is considering, a zero tolerance policy suggested
by Education Commissioner Doug Jamerson to combat violence in Flori-
da Schools. Jamerson wants a policy sending students to alternative
school the first time they assault a teacher or classmate or carry a weap-
on on campus.
The U.S. Congress has already passed a zero tolerance amendment
ags part of the Goals 2000 education bill, but state participation in it is
voluntary. Now some members want to make it mandatory for schools ac-
cepting federal funding.
It and the Florida Cabinet's pending proposal are bad ideas, because
they take away local control of schools, where local people know what is
best for their situation.
Leon school teacher Judy Birtman, who was badly beaten by a stu-
dent on the last day of school in June, said she was given no disciplinary
authority by the principal. Teachers and parents should decide, she said,
not the principal or the school board or the state.
-'The 14-year-old who attacked her had a criminal record, including
arrests for strong-armed robberyand aggravated assault., but he had not
been arrested for school violence before. He would have slipped through
the cracks of a state zero violence policy. In fact. the Leon sheriffs office
say they have a zero violence policy already. They arrest and take stu-
dents to juvenile court the first time they assault a teacher or classmate.
A strict mandate from on high would have expelled for a year that
Crystal River six-year-old who brought a loaded pistol to school in his
backpack last May. but never pulled it out. He was suspended for awhile,
but: not a year, and he was not charged with a juvenile crime-the right
locWal decision, because he really had no concept of the seriousness of his
actions.
'Instead of the easy tough stances to get the anti-crime vote. state
and federal authorities should give the school choice idea some consider-:
ation. Florida has already adopted the school-based management plan,
but because of long-standing fears of the public school teacher unions,
we have backed off school choice.
Former Florida State University President Stan Marshall says he has
come to believe it is the best way to cut violence and bring academic ex-
cellence back into the classroom.
School choice is riding in-the tradition of American freedom, accord-
ing to Marshall. It gives parents the right to take the state tax money that
goes with every student to any school of their choice, thus creating a
healthy competition in education that will result in a better education for
students.
"MISS ROOT': Uncle Clem Rednek on Flat Creek about 30 miles
west of Tallahassee says all voters ought to write "Miss Root" over the
name of every politician on the ballot taking public tax money to cam-
paign for governor or the Florida Cabinet, then vote for the other candi-
date. .
Miss'Root is the name of an 800-pound hog, owned by.Don and
Alethea Corbitt of Lake City, who is dotting her countryside on campaign
signs in the Columbia .County commission race asking voters to: "Use,
your snout. Vote the others out" and "Put a twinkle in your sty!"
If they did as Uncle Clem suggests, it would pit Tampa businessman
Jack Gargan, the Democratic opponent of Gov. Lawton Chiles. against
Republican Jeb Bush, Miami businessman who is the shrub (son) of
Papa George Bush and Mama Martha Bush. on the November ballot for
governor.
"It'd be real Amerikin justice iffen we could jest go ahaid and elect a
genuine hog to the office," Clem said, "but the pork-barrel politicians
have made sure that can't happen. Miss Root can't even vote, which'
means she can never run for office and git in hog heaven where she
would raise her own pay and slop around happy spending other people's
money.
Uncle Clem was reacting to the.news last week that 10 candidates for
state-wide posts received $3.9 million in public financing under a new

Campaign Finance law sponsored by Chiles, who was the biggest dipper,
snagging $813,118 with more to come.
Bush and Gargan (famous for his citizen campaign to "Throw the Hy-
pocritical Rascals Out") have refused to accept tax money for their cam-
paigns, contended it is the same as "welfare for politicians". Two candi-
dates for cabinet seats-Republicans Sandy Mortham, who is running for
secretary of state, and Henry Farro, for attorney general-are also refus-
ing to accept the tax money. Sixteen other candidates have signed up for
public money, but haven't qualified to get it yet.
TV OR NOT TV: That's the question Florida sheriffs are asking them-
selves since the public has indicated it is tired of coddling criminals.
Gulf, Nassau, Marion and Clay county sheriffs have taken television sets
out of their jails. Duval County (adjacent to Clay), bowing to the trend,
cancelled 130 sets bought in, December.to replace damaged sets and
pulled the plugon what was left, announcing it might later put in con-
trolled sets with education and religious programs only.
Not a bad idea....but a lot better one is to find some hard labor for
the prisoners to do all day on government projects so they can earn their
own keep and sleep sound all night instead of sitting up looking at TV.
BROTHER JOE: Last week I helped bury. my red-headed brother Joe
Harper, Sr., (1918-1994), who served in the Army Infantry in the South
Pacific and in Europe during World War Two, worked 51 years at the
pulp mill in Palatka without time off for sickness, and (with the help of
his wife, Kathryn Gross) raised two fine sons.

News Roundup
Florida's first public campaign money payday last week for candi-"
dates of statewide office who agree to limit their spending became the
main issue-at least early on-for the five Republicans and one Democrat
facing Gov. Lawton Chiles in his bid for reelection.
Miami business man Jeb Bush, son of an ex-president and leader in
the polls and campaign war-chest among the Republicans, set off the
fireworks with. a television spot lambasting Insurance Commissioner Tom
Gallagher, Secretary of State Jim Smith, and Chiles. They all spent years
in public office, backed taxes, oppose a public vote on any new tax, and
accepted public campaign funds, which is really "welfare for politicians",
Bush said.
Gallagher and Smith responded with a political spot that said Bush
and his partner borrowed $4 million from a failed S&L and walked away,
leaving taxpayers the bill. The three GOP'ers called a truce the next day
after Republican Party Chairman Tom Slade said no evidence exists that
.Bush borrowed the money. "If he didn't borrow it, he couldn't default on
it," Slade said.
.In what he later said was maybe "half-tongue in half-cheek", Chiles
joked that he was "very, very concerned" about Republican contenders
attacking each other. "I sure hope they'll stop it". Chiles said.
Tampa businessman and maverick politician Jack,Gargan is oppos-
ing Chiles as a Democrat in the September primary. He gained his main,
fame with his successful 'campaign against some members of Congress
with his "Throw the Hypocritical Rascals Out" advertising. Gargan is not
using public money under the new law in his race against Chiles.
Ten candidates for governor and state cabinet offices received state
checks for almost $4 million to use in their upcoming campaigns in a law
sponsored by Chiles last year and cleared of a challenge in a Florida Su-
preme Court. .
Chiles was the biggestfdipper in public money for his campaign in
the governor's race with $813,118. Others were former Senate President
Ander Crenshaw, $781,162; Jim Smith, $660,474; Tallahassee lawyer
Kenneth Connor, $401,011; and Gallagher, $348,147.
Cabinet races brought out public campaign dippers (all Democrats)
Attorney General Bob Butterworth. $106.110; Comptroller Gerald Lewis,
$139,655: Karen GClevers. $218,906: and Bill Nelson, $241,495, in the
state treasurer's race; and Education Commissioner Doug Jamerson,`
$204.148. ,
Bush and two other Republicans turned down the public money.
They are Sandra Mortham, who is running for Secretary of State, and
Henry Ferro, a candidate for Attorney General.
WANTS JUSTICE. TOO: Suspended Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison
in TV and print media statements last week said he wanted the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement to finish its investigation of him on sex-
ual harassment charges that began in March and let him get back to
work. ,
"1 didn't think this could happen in America." said Harrison. 'They
scraped my name off the door of the office and told my employees not to
contact me. that I am not sheriff any longer and won't be back." ,,
The FDLE, which has not yet' brought formal charges against the
sheriff, has said it may ask federal agents to investigate the allegations
made byjail Inmates under civil rights laws.
Last week. the case took another twist when Tallahassee attorney
Steve M. Watkins. Ill, said he was seeking up to $100,000 in death and
other benefits under sate workers' compensation laws for the family of
ULnda Richter, a clerk, in the Gulf County Sheriffs Office who was, found
dead in a ditch in woods north of Port St. Joe on June 1.
State Investigators have not determined whether she died of a drug
overdose or whether she was held face down in the ditch and drowned.,
Five days earlier she had testified. before state agents investigating the
complaints against Harrison.
The workers' comp documents say Mrs. Richter was killed as a result
of that cooperation or committed suicide from fear of reprisal as a result
of her cooperation. "In either case, her death stemmed from her job,"
Watkins said.
CITIZENS' RULE: So far only the Save Our .Sealife constitutional
amendment proposal that effectively bans coastal net-fishing has made it
to the November ballot, but all eyes are centered on the Florida Supreme
Court. which has become the gatekeeper on a flood of citizen initiatives
that almost represent a revolution in government. -
SAlready this election year, the course has thrown three proposed con-
stitutional amendments off the ballot for misleading language and failure
to stick to a single issue. Its big test comes August 23, when oral argu-
ments on four taxation amendments and the top three casino initiatives
will be heard.
The top three casino propositions are for limited casinos in some 47
hotel locations, riverboat casinos around the state, and one for no casino
gambling in Florida. What happens if conflicting proposals arc ratified for
the constitution by citizens in the election?" asked one observer. "It's a
lawyer's dream," said Beanie Murphy. of the Florida Locally Approved
Gaming initiative.
A CASINO HIT: Florida casino gambling opponents don't have to
look any further than the move announced last week of.the headquarters
of Lvkes Steamship Co. from New Orleans to Tampa for ammunition. The
company found itself located across the street from a new casino. "Would
you want a casino right outside your doorstep?" askedLykes spokesman
Ardley Hanemann .-

Choosing the Right Home Major Investment of Time & Money

SGoing nto Experience With Open Eyes and Examining Sound Areas Can Save Grief Money, and Time Later


By Judy Corbus
For most people, buying a
home Is a major Investment of
both time and money. Choosing
the "right" house for your needs
and budget takes time and plan-
ning. but can help you avoid re-
grets later on. The Better Busi-
ness ; Bureau surveyed home
buyers who had been living In
their homes for seven years and
asked'?Them what they regretted
most about their decision to buy.
Among their top responses were:
*Purchasing without suffi-
cient funds '/'
*Poor quality construction
SDeclining neighborhood, re-
ducing property value: and
*Layout of house unsuitable
for family.
The first step in finding the
right house is to- determine how
much house you can afford. The
principal, Interest, taxes, and In-
surance for the house plus other
long-term debts, such as loan
payments, should not exceed
41% of your gross Income. Once
you know what you can afford.
iJ look only at houses in your price
range. This will save you, and the
realtor if you are using one, much
time.
Next, determine what your
family's housing needs are and
the features the house should
have. Room size and lay-out are
very important considerations. If
you have small children, you may
want their bedroom next to yours
to save steps at night. If the chil-
dren are older, you may prefer a
split plan, with the master bed-
room across the house from the
kids' rooms to give you more pri-
vacy. Extra bathrooms are a de-
sirable feature for most families.
especially to handle the morning
rush! A laundry area. a family
room. storage,space, and a dining
room vs. an eat-in kitchen are
other features to consider.
If you have-a lot of furniture
or large pieces, calculate the
room size you will need to handle
it. You can sketch a potenUal
floor plan and draw in your furni-
ture and possessions to see if the
room size will be adequate. You
: should be able to move freely
about the furniture without trip-
ping or having to go out of the
way to get through the room.
Keep in mind, too, your life-
style and the amount of time you
will have for upkeep and mainte
nance on yourh`,ioe:-IFdou are

Chiles Announces $3 Million
Emergency Loan Program
Governor Lawton Chiles has approved a $3 million emergeiicy
loan program that will provide interest-free loans to businesses in
Northwest Florida that were damaged by Tropical Storm Alberto
and the subsequent flooding. The loan program will be adminis-
tered by the Florida Department of Commerce in cooperation with
banks and community groups in the affected areas.
"As the floodwaters receded, so did the hopes of many North-
west Florida business owners who lost almost everything." Chiles
said. "We want to help them regain 'their footing and put these busi-
nesses back on solid ground.
The loans will be made available in 12 Florida counties desig-
nated as federal disaster areas-Bay, Calhoun, Franklin. Gadsden.
Gulf. Holmes. Jackson. Liberty. Okaloosa. Santa Rosa. Washington.
and Walton. The loans are designed to support small businesses
until federal funding. Insurance, or other forms of financing become
available.
The loans will range in amounts from $1.000 to $25.000 with
terms of 90 or 180 days. depending on the situation. Officials ex-
pect the first checks to be issued as soon as two weeks from today.
"It's extremely important that we get this money in the hands of
the people as quickly as possible,' said Commerce Secretary
- Charles Dusseau. 'These first few weeks are critical for small busi-
nesses that depend on a steady cash flow."
Starting Friday, the Florida Department of Commerce, local
banks economic development and community-based organizations
will meet to discuss the distribution, collection and processing of
loan applications. The loans will be made by the Florida First Capi-
tal Finance Corporation, a private, non-profit development corpora-
lion under contract with the Department of Commerce. to support
the growth and development of small businesses in the state.

Once you know what you
want and you begin your search,
luok for quality construction. A
house may look pretty but have.
many structural problems. Here,
are some points to consider: How
Swell do the doors shut? How solid',
is the floor? How energy efficient
, is the house? Is the roof ridge
. perfectly straight? Are there any
cracks in the foundation? Is there
a musty smell (a sign of moisture
problems)? Is the grading on the
lot sloping away from the house
enough to carr\ water away from
it'? \What is the condition of the
window frames? Why is the house
on the market'?
' It Is a good Idea to have a
professional inspector check out
a house you are seriously consid-
ereing. He or she can detect prob-
lems that may require costly re-
pairs. This may be a deciding
factor In whether or not to buy
the house.
Finally. if you are thinking of
buying an older house to remod-
el. remember not to overbuildd
the neighborhood". To reduce the
risk of a loss on your Investment.
it is best not to increase the value
of the house more than 15%0 over
the top value in the neighbor-
hood. For example, if you buy a
house in a $50,000 house neigh-
borhood and add a $24.000 addi-
tion. it is highly unlikely you will
sell your house to a family look-
ing for a $75.000 house. They will
be looking in a $75,000 neighbor-,
hood. Another "rule of thumb" is
the cost of the Improvement
should be less than 60% of the
cost of building a new home of
equal size and quality.
Finding your right house re-
quires time, patience, and a little
homework, but it is effort well
spent when you end up with a
home that fits your budget, your
needs, and most importantly.
YOU!

FLORIDA INCOME ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES
FOR FREE AND REDUCED PRICE MEALS
The Gulf County School Board today announced its policy for free and reduced price meals for chil-
dren unable to pay the full price of meals served under the national School Lunch and School Breakfast
programs. The District's/Sponsor's administrative office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed
by any interested party. The following household size and income criteria will be used for determining eli-
gibility, effective from July 1, 1994 to June 30, 1995.
These are the income scales used by the Gulf County School Board to determine eligibility for free
and reduced price meals.

Children from families whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible, for free or reduced
price meals.
Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter, to parents or'guardians. To apply for free
or reduced price meals, households should fill out the application and return it to the school. Additional
copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided on the application
will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school
year by school or other program officials.
Households that receive Food Stamps or AFDC "Aid to Families With Dependent Children" are re-
quired to list on the application only the child's name and food stamp or AFDC case number, and signa-
ture of adult household member.
For the school officials to determine eligibility, all other households must provide the following Infor-
mation listed on the application:
1) The total monthly household income must be listed by the amount received by each household
member receiving income and the type of income it is (such as wages, child support,-etc.);
2) Names of all household members; .
3) Social Security number of the adult signing the application or the word "none" for this house-
hold member if they do not have a Social Security number; and
4) The signature of an adult household member certifying that the information provided is correct.
Households that list income information and receive meal benefits must report to the school any de-
creases in household size and any increases in income of over $50 per month or $600 per year. House-
holds that list a food stamp or AFDC case number must report to the school when food stamps or AFDC,
is no longer received.
Applications may be submitted at any time during the year. ,
Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal policy, the principal or his/her designee will
review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the ruling of the
official, he may wish to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. If the par-
ent wishes to make a formal appeal, he may make a request either orally or in writing to Charles Temple
Watson, Director of Support Services, Gulf County School Board, 502 Niles Road, Port St. Joe, FL 32456,
227-1204 or 639-2871, for a hearing to appeal the decision. The policy contains an outline of the hearing
procedure.
If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the school should be
contacted. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for reduced price meals, or for
additional benefits, such as free meals for them, if the household income falls at or below the-levels shown
above.
In certain cases, foster children are also eligible for these benefits. If a household has foster children
living with them and wishes to apply for such meals for them, the household should contact the school
for more information. '
Unless otherwise indicated on the application, the information on the'free and reduced price meal ap-
plication may be used by the school system in determining whether the child is eligible for other educa-
tional programs.. ...
In the operation of child feeding programs administered by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. no
child will be discriminated against because of race, color, sex, national origin, age or handicap. If any
member of a household believes they have been discriminated against, they should write immediately to
the Secretary of Agriculture. Washington, D. C. 20250.
