In Ban the Net Fight
Gulf County seafood produc-
ers are getting Into the heat of the
battle to decide whether or not to
allow net fishing to continue in
Florida. With the group who call
themselves Save Our Seafood
A) mounting an expensive and ex-
tensive campaign to woo Florida
voters to their way of thinking,
the Seafood Producers and Con-
sumers are shifting into overdrive
in their effort to sink the no-net
movement.
With the question already as-
sured for the November ballot,
voters from all over Florida will be
making their decisions on wheth-
er or not to allow the continued
use of nets in Florida waters, by
fishermen.
To the Consumers and Pro-
ducers, this vote equals contin-
ued commercial fishing activities.
or it will mean they will be put
out of business if the amendment
is adopted.,
Commercial fishermen, and
many non-commercial fishermen
who are sympathetic with their
cause are getting into the same
kind of advertising campaign.
This past week, the commer-
cial people mailed letters to thou-
sands of individuals, organiza-
tions and firms, asking for help in
their fight to, maintain their busi-
ness. The fishermen are asking
for money, supplies, support, or
anything you can spare them to
be used in promoting their cause.
Gene Raffield. president of a
local firm which deals in seafood
and a leader in the effort to defeat
the no-ne, amendment, s,

Science Grant Helps Students


Gain Access to World Knowledge


A grant of $5,000 to Port SL
Joe High School to use for math
and science equipment will be-
come a part of a plan by the
schools to give every student In-
stant access to all the informa-
tion, knowledge and facts con-
tained anywhere in the world in a
school, college or institute, ac-
cording to Principal Wes Taylor.


The grant was announced by
Bill Dunning. Manager of Arizona
Chemical's Port St. Joe facility.
He presented David Bidwell with
the $5,000 check in a brief cere-
mony on Monday, August 22. The
grant will help purchase three
computer systems and five com-
puter software programs for sci-
ence classes.


Bill Dunning, shown above right, manager of the Arizona
Chemical Plant here in Port St. Joe, is shown presenting Da-,
vid Bidwell of the Gulf County School district with a check
for $5,000, to be used in improving the computer science
department of the schools.



Prayer Pact OK'd
The Gulf County Commission gave its unanimous en-
dorsement for approval of a resolution to allow prayer in
schools, Tuesday, despite a Supreme Court ruling which
would give one the impression of banning the practice.
The Commission followed the example set by several
counties In the state of Texas, which is swelling into a
nation-wide movement. The Commission also approved
copies of their action being sent all counties in Florida.


Dunning said, "Arizona
Chemical Is committed to being a
good corporate citizen and to
helping improve the quality of life
in Gulf County. We believe educa-
tion is the key to improving quali-
ty of life for all, and opinion re-
search shows educational quality
is one of this community's top
three concerns. For these rea-
sons, I'm pleased to present this
grant on behalf of all Arizona
Chemical employees, and particu-
larly pleased it will benefit the
science program."
Taylor said the system is al-
ready in the installation stage.
'We thought we would have it
ready by the time school started
this year, but other construction
needs at the school put this one
aside for a period of time. We
plan on having it in operation be-
fore this semester is over," he
continued.
USED FOR EQUIPMENT
Taylor said the Arizona mon-
ey will be used to purchase some
of the equipment used in the
computer network. The network
allows ,any student in the school
to access any educational institu-
tion in the nation for information
or instruction. 'The student can
do this himself from his owner
classroom," Taylor said.
'The system is state-of-the-
art and we have been able to in-
stall it for the benefit of our stu-
dents because of access to some
special tax funds and contribu-
tions from the private sector. It is
, a valuable asset to our school
and its educational program,"
Taylor said.
Arizona Chemical, headquar-
tered in Panama City, is a divi-
sion of International Paper, and
.the grant. announced this week
was provided through the Inter-
national Paper Company Founda-
tion following Dunning's endorse-
ment of the school proposal.
Arizona Chemical has plants
in seven U.S. locations and two
facilities in Europe, and is a lead-
ing supplier of resins and other
products -made using natural
chemicals obtained from trees.


Floods Costly

To Gulfs
"Road Dept.
Gulf County Pubic.
Works. Director Bob Lester
told the Gulf County Com- :'
mission Tuesday evening,
that. recent floods had
been devastating. to the
county road system,
Lester said the' dam-
age to dirt roads had been
estimated at $661,500.
"The Sauls Creek Road
alone -had over a quarter
million dollars damages to
its road. bed and bridges,"
Lester said.
Most of the road dam-
age was in the northern
and central sections of the
county.
Lester said. the 'dam-
age is not over yet. "The
constant rains wash out
repairs as fast as we -make
them," he said,.


Dial 911 and get Immediate
aid in an emergency.
This will become a reality in
Gulf County in about two
months, after three years of prep-
aration and getting ready for the
emergency calling system.
Tuesday evening, at the regu-
lar meeting of the County Com-
mission, chairman Warren Yeager
signed a check for $100.000.
which will be used for the down
payment for the system.
Gulf County Is contracting
with St. Joseph Telecommunica-
tions to furnish the service for a
period of 10 years, with the
county purchasing some of the
equipment and SL Joseph pur-
chasing some, providing the up-
keep, switchboard service and
rental of lines for a total of
$147,322 investment by the
county and monthly service pay-
ments of $2,991.15 for the 10
year lease period.
The 911 emergency enhanced
service system will cost Gulf
County residents a total of a half
million dollars over the 10 year
period.
NOT A CHEAP SYSTEM
Administrative assistant Lar-
ry Wells said, 'This is not a cheap
system, nor is any 911 system
cheap." The money Is being pro-
vided to pay for the system and
Sthe rental from the 50 surcharge,
the sbcriesiaveb payn g,
on their telephone bill for .the
past two and a half years, plus a
couple of grants the county has
received to help pay for the ser-
vice. The surcharge will pay
monthly rental payments also."
But, according to Wells, there
will be no extra money from the
50c surcharge. The phone bill
levy takes in about $3,100 per
month and the lease payments
are $2,991.
Gulf County will have a total
of $147,322 invested in the emer-
gency service in central oMce
consoles, and other in-house
equipment used for the purpose
of receiving calls and routing
emergency services where they
are needed.
The system, currently being
installed in the Gulf County Sher-
Iffs office and the Port St Joe Po-
lice Department dispatch room,.
include sophisticated machinery
to pinpoint where a call Is coming
from without the caller having to
Identify himself or, his position.
This feature was included for
those who may need an ambu-
lance but can't talk. to give their
location, or who may be too inco-
herent to be understood. In other
words, to provide help for those


who really need it.
NOVEMBER 1 START-UP
Emergency 911 coordinator
Marshall Nelson told the Commis-
sion Tuesday night the service
will be on line and in operation
on November I of this year.
That's only two months in the fu-
ture.
Nelson said, "Originally It ap-
peared as if we would have the
system on line by October 1,. but
the flood disaster took so much of
our emergency time, we had to
delay this project by nearly a
month. The November I date will
give us time to get the service in-
stalled, tested and in operation
by that time."
"This system will completely
overhaul our emergency services
in Gulf County." Wells said.
'Whether you want the police, the
sheriff, the Coast Guard, the Ma-
rine Patrol, any fire department
in the county, any ambulance
service; you just dial 911 and get
immediate response."
FLOOD ORDINANCE
In an additional bit of action.
brought on by things of an emer-
gency nature, the Commission
adopted a new version of their
flood damage prevention ordi-
nance.
There is nothing really new
and demandJng I,. Ja wta4;,,-L
riace oveer, what was required 'in, s-
the old one. National Emergency
Management requires periodic
changes in the 'flood ordinance in
order to keep discounts in force
to citizens for purchasing flood
insurance.
The new ordinance [like the
one it replaces] requires all build-
ings be built one foot above the
the mean flood level to participate
in the flood insurance program.


Gulf Can Give
Sand Permits
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection this week
granted permission for Gulf
County to issue emergency per-
mits to coastal residents to re-
plenish sand around structures
that was lost due to the erosion
caused by Tropical Storms Al-
berto and Beryl.
The emergency permits can
be obtained from the Gulf
County Planning/Building De-
partment, 229-8944.
Don Butler. GCPBD direc-
tor, said his department is au-
thorized to permit up to
100,000 cubic yards of sand to

Who Pays?

WE'RE NOT BEING CRITICAL, judgmental, not biased when
we write this little blurb, nor are we trying to tell anybody what
to do. We would hope that we would have the support of every
tax payer in Gulf County backing us in support of this position
we find ourselves in. Our county is in jeopardy and we have a
selfish motive for wanting to defend it from having to bear any
undue expenses.
Governor Lawtbn Chiles has put us in the position of having
to pay out thousands of dollars for which we are not going to get
any benefit. It will only satisfy someone's ego, or be the vehicle
for some as yet unknown person or persons to keep our Sheriff,
Al Harrison, in a bind for no proven reason.
WE HAVE GONE ON for nearly three months now, with this
thing regarding the Sheriff and whether or not he deported him-
self as a bad' sheriff. So far as we can see it, they are no closer to
a solution today than they were that day in early June when the
Governor removed the Sheriff from office on some trumped up
charges with little or no evidence to back them up.
That paragraph is either true, or the state of Florida has
some mighty inept investigators in the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement. They have come up with nothing yet and are
only serving to make a jackass out of themselves and Governor
Chiles.
WE WOULD BE SURPRISED if the governor received more
than a sprinkling of the Gulf County vote in his favor if this
thing keeps dragging on..
But, that's not the real purpose of this little blurb.
What we're overly concerned with is, who is going to pay the-
bill? Gulf County taxpayers?
What happens should nothing adverse be found after all this
high-powered, but quiet investigation? The Sheriff goes back to
work and has to be given back pay. Jack Davila goes back to;
work and has to be given back pay. The security chief must be
paid. But, all the money earmarked for these expenditures has
already been paid to their replacements! Where is the money go-
ing to come from' to pay all these back salaries? Where will the
money come from to pay the investigative expense?
THE STATE OF FLORIDA has already taken the position of
"it's your problem; you pay for it!" in other/ legal matters and
court actions' affecting Gulf County. Gulf County has to pay
when the state decrees a move of venue, the change of public de-
fenders from the local man to an out-of-county man, and nu-
merous court functions the county didn't originate. What's to
stop 'Gulf County from having to bear the substantial brunt of
the cost involved in this investigation which keeps being drug on
and on for no apparent reason?
We should demand an in-depth report of what has been ac-
complished or call a halt to the whole fiasco.



One Shot at Prize
IF IT WEREN'T FOR the Gubernatorial candidates trying to
get elected, one would hardly suspect there is an important elec-
tion coming up on Thursday, September 8; a mere two weeks
from today.
But, in fact, one of the more important races willbe not only
voted op, but will be decided in that primary election on Septem-
ber 8. There ifs no precedent for it, but it's there. We will actually
vote on and decide the fate of candidates in two'non-partisan
elections during a partisan primary.
The Gulf County Judge question and the Circuit Judge selec-
tions will be made-finally--on September 8. The candidates
running for those offices, with the most votes on that day, will be
our Gulf County Judge and our Circuit Judge.
THE FIRST PRIMARY election doesn't take a back seat to,
any of the primaries, nor the general election, so far as being the
most important goes.
One' would think that a non-partisan elecUon, such as. the
judge of either court, should have their selection in the general
election, rather than a primary selection. For this reason, some
people may fail to vote on September 8, thinking that it is just a.
primary contest for selecting party candidates.
We shouldn't fail to vote in any election, for any reason, but:
we surely don't need to forget nor neglect to vote in the Septem-
ber 8 primary :
;,ON THE OTHER HAND the election process is sort of quiet
th$s year. This is what is termed an "off-year" election and there
is aot much activity going on out there so far as replacing public
servants is concerned. It may be hard to generate much interest
in any race but the governor's or some other state-wide race.
An interested citizen shouldn't fail to vote in any election, but
please, folks, don't forget this one!


Li


Hunker Down with Kes


. by Kesley Colbert


Mary Hadley Never Did Get A Tattoo


Two events that took place in,
mid to late August every year
had a profound effect on my out-
look concerning a formal educa-
tion. One was the Carroll County
Fair, the other was getting out of
school for cotton picking. The'
fair usually ran the week before


school "took in" for another year.
You can see our dilemma
right off.
"Listen guys," Curtiss
Friendsley was always thinking,
that was what he was good at,
"we can get a job with these guys
.and we won't have to go back to
school at all."
We'd just come out of the fat
lady's tent and we pondered :on
Curtiss' words.
"I tell you, I'd rather look at
Big Claudia everyday than to
face old lady Childress in Eng-
lish." Ricky Gene was like me.


We'd both had just about been
sacked up by eighth grade Eng-
lish and we'd heard nightmare
stories of Miss Childress' ninth
grade classes.
I was sure going to keep an
open mind to any alternatives
that might come up.
"What would we do here?"
Mary Hadley Hayden was the
only decent girl we knew. She'd
played baseball with us since
birth, wore pig tails most of the
time, had eight zillion freckles,
chewed Brown Mule like the rest
of us, could outrun everybody


except Fast Eddie, nobody would
arm wrestle her anymore and
she didn't throw up after riding
the Tilt-A-Whirl. 'She was O.K.
Plus,. she could throw in a good
question every now and then.
What could we do at a
county/ fair?,
We pondered some more.
"Surely we could stand over
at that booth with all those cups
and saucers and glasses and
pick up 'the pennies and dimes
the suckers tossed on the floor."
"Ricky Gene could pick up
that yellow duck and yell out,
'Seventeen' ".
"We could all help move Big
Claudia!"
"Mary Hadley could get some
tattoos-" -
"I've got it!' Curtis yelled, "I %
want to be that slicked up dude
out in front of the big tent who
brings in the crowd with, "Step
right up ladies. and gentlemenI
See the greatest show on earthly
See Lady Francina do the dance
of the seven veils. She walks, she
talks, she crawls on her belly like
a reptile. One thin dime, one tenth
of a dollars Get your tickets here.
Don't miss Lady Francinal She
once danced for the King of Hol-
landl Step right up, everything
goes but the lights-' "
"Shut up, 'Curtiss," Mary
Hadley was laughing but she al-
most looked embarrassed. You
just want to see the show."
Weren't 'none of us' old
enough to get in but we'd all
talked about what it would be
like.
"Maybe if we worked here,
they'd let us in."
Mary -Hadley was laughing
for real, "You guys come back in
about ten years."
We ate cotton candy, rode
eyery ride, lost money trying to
'set that Coke bottle up without
tipping it over and couldn't
knock those milk bottles com-
pletely off that stand with three
throws. I think the bottles had
lead in the bottom of 'em.
And we went home broke,
wore out and half sick. -. -
,What a great, great time
"And Monday morningg school
started.' y s'
"We should have helped take
the tent down, we could have
slipped into the truck and been
in Arkansas this morning." We
discussed the terrible mistake
we'd made even being here all
through lunch.
"Good afternoon class, my
name is Miss Childress, spit up
straight, sit out that gum, we're
here to learn ."
I started practicing picking
up ducks.
We went to school for two
weeks, then we got out two
weeks for cotton'picking. I hated
those city kids. They slept 'till
noon, then cruised around the
DairyBar the rest of the day.
Curtiss picked cotton. Ricky
Gene picked cotton. iMary Hadley
picked cotton. I picked cotton.
From sun up 'til sun down!
My back hurt, my. knees hurt,

A Rainy Saturday Brings Some Unusual Activities


THE LITTLE STORM we had
drift through the Panhandle a
couple of weeks ago happened
right in the middle of a week end
when I normally have a couple of
days off. It is a time to wash the
car, work on a project "or two in
my back-yard shop, sleep, read'. .
. or even cut the grass as a last
resort.
The past few weeks have put
most of these activities on hold
because of the rains and the trav-
elling to see a grandson graduate
from college. It seems as if I can
never get the projects going be-
cause of the rain, or having some-
thing else I have to do.
Frenchie and I went to Calla-
way Gardens for the July fourth
holiday and something has come,
up every week end since.
My car is beginning to look
like a refugee from a bog-in, my
saw blades are getting rusty, the
grass is out of control, except the
front yard. My neighbor, Betty
Rich, keeps it cut so it won't


make her yard look so bad. You
can hunt lions in the back yard.
MY GRAPE VINE needs
shaping up and my satsuma and
kumquat' trees need spraying.
Every time I schedule a little at-
tention for them, it starts raining.
I'm going to have to take one of
those stay at home vacations in
the middle of the week, to get the'
chores done. Even the eaves of
the house look like the inside of a
coal bin from the milldew which
has them coated. They need
spraying bad!
You know the next line of
that story. Tropical Storm "Beryl"


struck and deposited me indoors
for the duration.
ALL WAS NOT lost, however.
I decided it was a good time for
moving my long sleeve shirts out
of my closet into an upstairs'clos-
et, where they would stay until
cool weather and give me some
room in my downstairs closet.
While I was at it, I could
clean out the corner where all the
old magazines were stacked, ,wait-
ing to be read at a more leisurely
pace or tossed in the trash.
Well I lit into the job Satur-
day. By the time I had necessary
chores out, of the way, it was al-


most noon before the job began.
It was raining outside, which
made it a little cool inside. It was
an ideal time to be carrying shirts
upstairs and piling magazines up
with the thought in mind of get-
ting rid of them.
I went through my shirts, se-
lecting the long sleeve variety and
started upstairs, with a smug and
satisfied look on my face. At last,
I was making room in my closet
for clothes to hang without being
crowded and wrinkling up every-
thing in there. It was a job I had
been planning to- get to since
April. I was determined to get
them moved before I had to start
wearing them again.
I GOT UPSTAIRS, opened
the door to one and it was full!
Well, I thought, no problem; I'll
just go to the other bedroom and
deposit them- there.
Wrong!
That one was full, tool I laid
the shirts down and went down-
stairs to check the extra closets


for space to put my shirts and
found them full too.
What'is this? I thought. Two
people and an 89-year-old grand-
ma live in this house, which has
eight closets and they're all full!
I pushed and tugged and
made room for the shirts in one
of the upstairs closets and when
Frenchie came home I asked her,
What gives with the full closets?
"Oh the kids had some
clothes they couldn't get in their
closets and didn't want to throw
them away so they put them in
ours temporarily!" she said.
"How long is 'temporarily'?" I
grumbled.
"Not long," Frenchie replied.
'They should have them all out
by fall. That's only a couple of
months away."
Great! I won't need the extra
closets then
SO, I TURNED MY attention
to the pile of magazines, mum-
bling under my breath.
I worked for a full hour, sort-


ing old magazines from new ones,
stacking them in boxes to toss
out. I made headway, although I
did find many things which I had
to stop and read.
To make a long story short, I
got the magazines outside. I even
cleaned out the magazine racks.
. emptied one of them!
I was self satisfied. Some of
them were behind a 'reading
chair' and I even found a sack of
fireworks among the 'magazines,
which I had acquired for the kids
to shoot last Christmas, a pair of
house slippers which I know I
hadn't worn since winter, and a
week end -bag containing A. J.'s
change of clothes from the last
time he had spent the night.
But Sunday afternoon came
the question. 'Where did you put
my Southern Living magazine of
May 1992? It had a recipe I want-
ed inside. And where is my 1989
copy of Good Housekeeping and
my June 1990 copy of Readers
Digest ."
Good grief

Found the Band


Great Experience


I recently read Port St. Joe
High School Band Director Mitch-
Bouingtofi's notice in the August
11, 1994, issue'6f this newspaper
and have these comments.'
I agree that the band pro-
gram has been dying; fortunately

you have brought back one of the
best musicians ever to come out
of PSJ High and asked him to put
the band program back together.
Mitch was in high school
band, back just before what I
would call the dying out period
and-I am sure he remembers high
school band with great fondness.
I, too, remember high school
band well. For those students
who are missing out on this pro-
gram, let me tell you what I1
would have missed out on with-
out band.
Most people -who know me
know that I am not an athletic
person-not even close. If there
had not been a band program, I
would not have had an outlet-for
showing my school spirit and
pride. It was not only an extra-
curricular activity for me. but a

like myself, the bonds made were

The front of the Gulf County Courthouse is rapidly tak-

puts the finishing touches on a renovation job for the en-
trance. County Commission Chairman Warren Yeager said,
"We got tired of trying to deal wvith those blankety-blank dol-

could take care of that and is currently in the process. In

Mediation Taking Pressure Off Courts-Overstreet


Attorney Mike: Overstreet
spoke to the Klwanis Club Tues-
day, speaking on the subject of
mediation and the role It is play-
Ing in the court system through-
out the nation.
"Mediation has speeded up

Of course, there are always.
the perks of being in hband;- the
trips out'of town to all of the foot-
ball games; the experience of
competition from being able to,
participate in marching and con-
cert band contests; the awards
received from individual efforts at
solos; recognition earned by being
sent to honor band clinics
throughout the state; the scholar-
ships for furthering your educa-
tion; and the experience of a life-
time. The self-confidence you re--


from the formal court proceedings
in rendering decisions in damage
suits, divorce cases, and other
cases where both parties can
come to an agreement after a
cooling off period," Overstreet
said..

right thing by other people, no
matter what the situation. I find
it an easy matter to come to a
mediated agreement which both
parties can live with. Most cases
can usually be decided upon with
no more than five hours by the
time they reach the mediation
process," the speaker said.
He pointed that anyone cn
be a designated as a mediator. "It
doesn't require a lawyer to reach
a decision but once it is reached,
it is best if.an attorney be hired to
put the agreement Into words," he
said.
Mediation is mostly for people
who can't tell the full extent of
how they have been wronged in
court simply because the court.

stances, mediation is valuable be-
cause both parties can tell all
they want to about both sides of

Overstreet said the practice
of mediation has speeded up de-:

Cutting Medical



By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

There is nothing or no one more efficient in cutting medical
costs than your own doctor. If each patient would choose his own
doctor and see that doctor regularly, without flying off for emergen-
cy room visits, millions of dollars could be saved by patients, insu-
rance companies and tax payers.
When you choose your own doctor, it should be someone you
trust to see that you get the medical care you need.. Once having se-
lected that doctor, please let that person direct the show.
There is usually a normal progression of a disease. Your doctor
may see you on the first or second day of an illness and think you
need only Tylenol and liquids. If you are no better by the 4th or 5th
day of the illness, many people then go to the nearest emergency
room. This is a completely worthless, but often very costly visit. If
you are not better by the 4th or 5th day of an illness, you need to
let your doctor know. Sometimes all you need to do is make a tele-
phone call, but sometimes you need to be seen again.
Sometimes laboratory or x-ray studies will be indicated. Please
let your doctor decide when these should be done. At times the doc-
tor will not think extra studies need to be dne, but for some rea-
son the patient is anxious about the illness. If this occurs, the pa-
tient needs to communicate his concern to the doctor. The problem
should be discussed. I have never encountered a physician who is
not ready to help a patient answer a legitimate concern.
Doctor patient relationships are enhanced by truthful answers
being exchanged. Many patients will see a doctor and withhold in-
formation about medications they are taking from other physicians.
This is not only a costly practice but also a dangerous one.
Each patient needs a medical home where he feels comfortable
and happy with the concernm#d care he receives. This is in the
long run the most cost effective and emotionally rewarding situation
for the patient and the physician.
If you do not have a close relationship with a caring physician,
you are being short changed. Money is being wasted, but the worst
part of flitting from one source of care to another is, that no matter
who pays or how much, you never realize the benefits of a consis-
tent doctor-patient relationship. Discussions about care and plans .
of care should be arrived at together and patients should feel good
about this.

a small town with people that
have huge hearts.

Colby brought so much joy
and love and touched many lives
at age seven. I think we could all
learn something from him. He
was always considerate and with
a smile for everything and every-
one, including what life gave him.
May God bless you and yours and
I hope that you each will allow
Him to walk in your lives the way
He has in ours.

Gators, Sharks In Kick-Off Classics


Both high school football teams in Gulf County will
test their squads this week end in fall kick-off classics
Thursday and Friday nights.
The Wewahitchka Gators will test the waters with a
team they defeated in last year's classic in their initial ex-
perience of donning the pads for the real thing tonight.
The Gators will be hosting Freeport in Gator Field under
the lights at 7:00 p.m. The Gators took on Freeport in last
year's classic and won by a score of 14-6. It was one of few
times which the rebuilding Gators were successful in last
season and resulted in injuries to key players which prob-
ably played a tremendous role in their lack-luster season.
Coach Wayne Flowers and his charges have met with
rough experiences during the past two years but are ex-
pected to be more like, the Gators of old this season, as
they head into a season with a veteran team.


Port St. Joe's Sharks play their kick-off classic Friday
night, finding themselves in the uncomfortable position of
facing a much larger team for their testing process. Of
course, this isn't anything new for the Sharks. Last year's
classic involved a romp with the huge Niceville Eagles in a
pouring rain which resulted in a 40-15 drubbing for the
Sharks.
The Sharks will visit the Bay High Tornadoes at Tom-
my, Oliver Stadium Friday night, at 8:30 p.m. Port St. Joe
time. Tickets are on the sale in the front office of the
school through Friday noon, at $1.00 per ticket savings.
But when the playing began for real the following
week,. the Sharks embarked on a season which kept them
in the race for the;state play-offs all season long.
The Gators and the Sharks, play in Port St. Joe next
Friday night, in the 'season opener for both teams.

One Tooth,

Can Matter


Maybe your teeth are
free of decay and your gums
are healthy, but you have
one tooth right In the front of
your mouth that's unattrac-
tive. It may be chipped or dis-
colored. Or maybe It's been
twisted out of shape for some
reason or Is longer than It
need be. Don't let it detract
from your appearance. Ask
your dentist what can be
done about It.
A tooth that Is longer than
It need be, for Instance, can
look like a "fang". It may even
give you an "angry" look
when you open your mouth.
This tooth can be shortened
and shaped, and what a dif-
ference It will make In your
smile! The same goes for a
tooth that has been rotated


or twisted out of shape: The
problem may be that It
doesn't blend symmetrically
with your other teeth. Your
dentist can solve this problem
for you.
Chipped or discolored
teeth can be ,unsightly, no
matter where they happen to
be In your mouth, but espe-
cially If they are up front
where they show easily. Chips
can be repaired, and discol-
ored teeth can be bleached
and colored to look natural
again. Ask your dentist about
it.

Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

ROUND-UP ,.
by Jack Harper


We Already Have Cubans
..Sleeping On the Floor
Me and Uncle Clem Rednek over on Flat Creek in Gadsden County
are doffing our hats to Gov. Lawton Chiles for helping build a fire under
President Bill Clinton last week to divert the Florida-bound flow of Cuban
rafters back to Quantanamo Naval Base and thus hopefully fend off an-
other mass exodus to the United States.
The reversal of a.35-year policy on refugees from communistic Cuba
wasn't nice nor tidy,'or' even desirable, but it was maybe necessary to
block Dictator Fidel Castro's trump card, which is to blame the U.S. for
Shis problems and use immigration to our shores as an escape valve.
Uncle Clem said it hurt him personally to see the Cuban rafters
turned back (no rnmore will be allowed to land in Florida) "'cause dat's the
way we built this here country-taking in folks who want to be free to live
and work, But it was the right thing to do. Even Aunt Minnie Tenishoe
Down dere in St. Petersburg agrees wit me on dat."
It doesn't mean, Clem said, that he or Aunt Minnie are going to auto-
matically vote for Clinton or. Chiles in the. next election..'"Shucksl Dey's
all Democrats jest like that Democrat-Jack Kennedy-who started the
whole mess with Castro down there when he wouldn't back those Cuban
boys wanting to take their country back at The Bay of Pigs. He wouldn't
give them air cover and Jest let them get barbecued."
Not only that, according to Clem, Kennedy later made a deal with
,'Russia to get the missiles out of Cuba by promising not to try to oust
Castro through military means. .
Florida's U.S. Senators Bob'Graham and Connfie Mack also helped
-build the fire under Clinton late last week. insisting on other measures to
" confront Castro, including a reduction of money Cubans living in the
U.S. can send to relauves in Cuba, continuing the U.S. economic embar-
'go on Cuba, and asking the United Nations council to declare a world-
,'wide blockage of.Cuba, like the one now on Haiti.
"Dey all done good,"'Clem said. "Maybe only fer political reasons. But
iffen itworks, who keres."

IS THIS AN ISSUE? Like President Clinton. Sen. Ted Kennedy and
-many other Washington politicians, three GOP candidates for Florida
..governor send their children to private Instead of public school. So did
,Gov. Lawton Chiles when his kids got to high school age. Some newspa-
-pers are making a political issue out of it.
For the record, here is what is being reported: Jeb Bush, Ken Con-;
'nor, and Ander Crenshaw send all their children to either private or relig-
ious schools. Tom Gallagher has no children. Jim Smith split his chil-
'dren, with two graduating from public high school and one from a private
:school. Smith said it wasn't by accident. "Our strong feeling as parents
was to have our children .go to public schools--that's the real world,"
'Smith said.
Incumbent Gov. Lawton Chiles' four grown children attended Florida
public schools until high school, then graduated from private high
.schools. His five grandchildren will attend public schools this fall.

Floridians Want Results; Desires
State To Live Within Its Means
Four citizen tax initiatives came under bitter attack by critics last
week and more than a dozen state candidates favored them officially as
the Florida Supreme Court prepared to review them on their language,
clarity and single subject requirements before certifying them for the No-
vember 8 ballot.
"The opposition 'Is what we expected as the people of'Flbrida flight td
Orcoveruogntrol of their government," Tax Cap Committee Chairman Da9.
d Bicdilph said. "These constitutional amendment proposals can de-'
fine the direction the state will take Into the next century."
The committee organized a statewide referendum drive that collected
more than three million signatures.
But critics warned their passage would prevent adequate protection
of the environment, the successful operation of schools, and 'crime pre-
vention because it would cripple the government's ability to raise money..
"In reality, they would bring great harm to our communities while,
lbenefiting a few special interests," said Common Cause Executive Direc-
$tr Sally Spencer. "It would be impossible If they passed to protect wet-
Slhnds," said Charles Lee of the Florida Audubon Society.
I Favoring the amendments by signing the first of the court briefs were
Republican candidates for governor Jeb Bush, Jim Smith and Tom Gal-
lagher and Democratic candidate Jack Gargan. Also signing the briefs as
friends were Sen. Curt Kiser, R-Palm Harbor, Gallagher's running mate;
Rep. Sandy Mortham, candidate for Secretary of State; Henry Ferro, At-


Gator Band
Back in Action
Summer's over and it's time
for the. Wewahitchka High School
Gator Band to get back to work
again. There are lots of fresh new
faces in marching band this year;
the band is in a growth trehd. Mr.
Stryker had a good turn out for
the beginner and senior band
classes. '
: A second try-out competition
for drum major was held on:Au-
st 19. Congratulations go to
Ginny McClellan upon winning
the position. She is the daughter
df Dawn and Brinton McClellanh of
Wewahitchka. Ginny is a 10th
grader and plays both clarinet
and trumpet.
The band also elected officers
: for the 1994-1995 school year.
The new officers are: Captain -
Colin Hutchinson, Lieutenants -
Charlie Cole, Tana Copeland,
Kenneth Knowles and Rusty
McKnight.
They will be taking orders for
band calendars in the very near,
future, so watch for further infor-
nation. Everyone in the commu-
nity is encouraged to get out and
support the band whenever you .
can. Show these hardworking
students you care they really
will appreciate it.
The WHS Band Boosters will
have the concession stand open
during the Kick-Off Classic on
Thursday, August 25.


torney General candidate; Comptroller candidates Chris Comstock and
Bob Milligan; Treasurer candidates R.K. "Skip" Hunter and Rep. Tom Ire-
land; Frank Brogan, candidate for Education Commissioner; Agricultural
Commission candidate Frank Darden; and Joe Scarborough, candidate
for the U. S. Senate.
The proposed citizen initiative calling for a two-thirds vote of the peo-'
ple to add a new tax through a constitutional amendment is perhaps the
most likely to meet critical opposition by the high court, according to ob-
servers.
Environmientalists contend it was aimed at eliminating any present
or future per pound tax through a constitutional amendment is perhaps
the most likely to meet critical opposition by the high court, according to
observers.
Environmentalists contend it was aimed at eliminating any present
or future per pound tax on sugar to make farmers pay for a cleanup of
the Florida Everglades. The court has already struck down the proposed,'
per pound tax on raw sugar in an earlier ruling.
Critics say the proposal was added to the Tax Committee's package.'
of constitutional amendments after big sugar farmers agreed to finance
the signature collection drives for all three of the tax amendments and a
property rights measure.
Another amendment would require voter approval of all new taxes at
the local, state, and county level. Citizens' initiatives would no longer be
required to deal with just a single subject in' another proposed amend-
ment. It would make it easier for citizens to put budget related measures
on the ballot.
The property rights amendment in the package would Tequire govern-
ment to compensate landowners when government action lowers the.val-,
ue of private property.
CABINET RACE: The sleeper issue in the race for the education com-
mission post on the Florida Cabinet is the Lake County School Board's
policy to teach American heritage and culture as superior to other foreign
or historic cultures.
Silly perhaps, because American history and culture was once the
centerpiece of every little red school house in the country, but no more.
The policy is in direct response, of course, to a 1991 Florida law that re-
quires schools to teach students to appreciate other cultures of the world
and thus be made to realize that no culture is superior or inferior to an-
other.
Education commissioner and Democratic candidate Doug Jamerson,
a Florida lawmaker appointed by Goy. Lawton Chiles to fill the post va-
cated by Betty Castor, informed the school board in a two-page letter the
policy was against Florida law. As a lawmaker he is right technically, but
wrong politically. The United States is a melting pot of multi-cultures
that for more than 200 years has attracted many immigrants to. its
shores because It is superior to the culture they left.
Jamerson. a black American, had better believe that Florida at least
is still a' melting pot where in the end It's what you are, not the color of
your skin, that counts. Otherwise, predominately white voter registration
figures will defeat him.
Many voters see the education commission post as a symbol of a fail-
ing school school system of low test scores and high dropout rates, where
good teaching and innovative ideas for academic excellence is seldom
found anymore.
But five candidates, including Jamerson, want the job that pays
$96,861 a year.
The other Democrat in the race is John Griffin of Ormond Beach, a
consultant with a background in the military, finance and education. Re-
publican 'candidates are Martin County school superintendent Frank
. Brogan; Bob Morris, a Sarasota businessman; and John Kager of Orange
Park, founder of Heritage Ministries, a Christian curriculum company,
Bookstore, school, and church.

High School.
-By Larry A. Mathes

Kick-Off Classic


Thursday night at 7 p.m., the Gators host Freeport High School
in a full-length practice game at Gator Field. This game replaces the
fall jamboree, and gives coaches an early look at where they stand
as they prepare for the official opener against Port St. Joe on Sep-
'tember 2. While the outcome doesn't count in any standings, I'm
sure Freeport remembers last year and will be out for revenge!l
Come on out and support the Gators at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Finishing a construction project is hard. There are so many lit-
tle things to be finished or touched up that It seems to take forever.
.But it will be finished to everyone s satisfaction. Now, if we can get
our bells and P.A. system working, we'll be back to "business as
usual". Once again, I have to brag on our students-faced with all
'he obstacles we've had, our students have reacted magnificently'
with one of the smoothest starts ever. Let's push to maintain this'
momentum the entire year!
Congratulations to Chris Earley and the new Port St. Joe Mid-
dle School as they embark on their new school. I'm sure Mr. Early'
will ensure a successful start for St. Joe's middle schoolers,.-
: WHS's open house has been rescheduled for August 30 (Tues-
'.day night) from 6:30-8 p.m. Please come, meet the, teachers;, -pick
up progress reports if needed, and just socialize a little. An election,
to choose; parental members of the School Advisory Council will
take place at the Open House. Join us.!
'Volleyball practice is moving along, as is cross-country. A large
number of students compete in these sports, so plan on trying to
see somrne volleyball matches and try to follow the cross-country
teams. They all need your support. And please remember-it does
cost a lot of money to put on these activities. so when you're asked
to pay for tickets, etc., you're helping to keep these programs run-
ning. Without your help, we would have to begin cutting back on
what students like to participate in. Thanks for your help!

Prior to the late 1950's, wild hors-

tangers,"' people who cruelly
rounded, up the horses and sold
them for slaughter. This activity,
however, was outlawed in 1971
when Congress passed the Wild'
Free-Roaming Horse and Burro'.
Act. This law protects wild horses'
from extinction and preserves
them as "living symbols of the.

_ rPUBLIC NOTICES


the wild horse herds increased
rapidly since they have no natu-
ral predators.
The horses compete for limit-
ed forage and water with native
wildlife and domestic livestock
that also graze public lands. In
1973, the government began re-
moving excess numbers of wild
horses in order to achieve desig-
nated herd management levels.
As part of this management actlv-
ity. the BLM established the
Adopt-A-Horse and Burro Pro-
gram and made the animals,
available to people who would
agree to give them good homes.
More than 120,000 horses and
burros have been relocated as a
result.
The adoption fee helps recov-
er some the of the government's
expense for transportation and
veterinary care of the animals.
Before shipping, every animal
rounded/up by BLM is thoroughly
checked by a veterinarian, Cog-
gins tested, and vaccinated for
various equine disorders.
Requirements: Adopters are
required to provide 12x12 feet of
adequate shelter and 20x20 feet
of corral space with sturdy fenc-
ing 6 feet high. In order to trans-
port the animals) from the adop-
tion, they must have a solid con-
structed horse trailer with a cdv-
ered top and side-swing back
gates (drop ramps are not permit-
ted) along with halters and lead
ropes. BLM contract crews sort,
halter and load the animals) onto
, the adopter's trailer.
Application. forms can be
obtained from the Bureau of
Land Management, 411 Briar-
wood Drive, Suite 404,. Jack-
son, MS 39206, or call (601)
977-5430. Only those receiving
approval of their applications by
close of business on Monday,
September 2, 1994 will be eligible
for the "Lottery Drawing." Num-,
bers will be drawn between 7-8
a.m. on Friday, September 9,
1994 to determine the' selectirig
order. "Walk-up" applicants will
not participate in the lottery, but
will be accepted on- a first-come,
first-serve basis.
People who wish to adopt
horses and burros from the gov-
ernment must sign an agreement
to provide proper care and to ei-
ther not abuse or commercially
exploit the animals. On the first
anniversary of the animal's adop-
tion, the adopter is eligible to
make an application for certifi-
cate of title. If the animals) has
been humanely cared for, the
BLM will award the adopter clear
title to the animal. Until that ti-

Who's Who
On the Clean
Scene at WHS?
In order to have a great
school, all players on the team
are important and you have all
heard the old saying, "Cleanliness
is next to Godliness." Keeping our
school clean are Ada Dozier. Wil-
lie Mary Culver, and Teresa Wil-
liams. No chore is too big and no
task is too messy for these ladies.
Thei.Joy of Parenthood
In the preface of this book by
Jan Blaustone, she says, "We are
all caretakers of thee children.
'They're on loan to us for a limited
time, and only the loaner knows
for how long." How true that is.
School Is Going Great
Mr., Kelley always says that-
school is going great, and not Just
at the beginning of the year. As of
Monday, August 22, 462 students
had registered. That total is up
from last year, and of course we
always get new kids after Labor
Day. At WES; we always make
each new child feel welcome.

Former Student Helps Parent
Former WES student Eric
McDaniel, who is in the ninth
grade, usually had his father,
Ward, check over or help with his
math homework. Last week in be-
ginning algebra, Eric said to his
dad, "Daddy, I know how to do
something that I bet you can't
even do." What a special moment
in our lives for our children to
teach us, too. I imagine that in
that time when Ericwas explain-
ing'some algebraic formula to
Ward, he received an even better
understanding himself
Open House Last Week at WES
Last Tuesday, August 16, the

etc., discipline, homework, class
trips, course of study, and lots of
other things that we may some-
times take for granted.

No, it is not the name of the

Welcome Backj All You HAWKSI
Everyone is excited to be in
school (and I say that with little
reservation) as I see the smiling
faces each day. Even one sixth
Grader who had a stack of books
to take home had a "Whewl" and
a smile with a twinkle in the eye.
And parents! I challenge you
to help them keep that positive
attitude through the year Tell
them each day how much you
love them and how proud you are
to have them as part of your famni-
lyl Encourage the kids to do the
best they are able, and let them
know that they can do it!

;'.message, just punch in your
child's teacher's three digit code,
and if a message is there, it will
play for you. I put my message on
today and was surprised how
easy it was. The only hitch was
that I sounded like Mammy Yok-
um from Dogpatch, U.S.A.1 Your
child's teacher will give you the
code. The messages may be up-
graded daily or weekly. A lot of
primary teachers also send home
a weekly newsletter with all kinds
of info on it.
Kindergarten Student of the
Week
Kimrn Ludlam picked Andrew
Taylor as the kindergarten stu-
dent of the week. Andrew is the
son of Mat and Teresa Taylor. His
favorite subject in school is "cen-
ter time'. He admires his dad arid
wants to work at the papermill
just like him. His favorite TV
show is Bugs Bunny. He also
likes to look at books, especially
the Batman Book that makes
sounds., Andrew likes to play with
his baby brother and his dog. An-
drew said that, "School is fun!"
He is just starting on the discov-
ery road to lots of fun in school. If
the enthusiasm, would last on
students like they have in the be-
ginning of school, think of the
wonders we could see.


In talking with these leaders.
they expressed that their one goal
this year is to plan, prepare, and
sell a school yearbook.
Saying Good-Bye
For Christina Colson, Alisha
Chavous, Brittany Crocker, Aaron
Hamm, Jeff Hayes, Anthony
