of Fifth Street.
Park Work Started
Work has started on Port St. Joe's newest park. west of Balt-
zell Avenue and south of Fifth Street, financed jointly by a state:
park grant and matching city funds. Scheduled to be completed
during the month of October, workmen have already put down
the surface of a new tennis court and constructed a large picnic
shelter. Work has begun on paving the designated parking area
and other facilities on the property. Bill Kennedy of Preble-Rish
reported Tuesday night at the Commission meeting.
The city purchased the property in the fall of last year from
St. Joe Land and Development Company, after utilizing the
property as an unofficial park for many years. The city has also
purchased the property east of Baltzell Avenue, known as "the
park" from First Union Bank early this year.
Southeastern Mechanical Contracting, Inc., of Port St. Joe is
doing the construction work.
WO C m lS~llS
The City of Wewahitch-
ka is also voting today
[Thursday], electing City
Commissioners in Groups I
All voters in the City
election will cast their bal-
lots in the Community
Building polling center.
Voters in Gulf County Dis-
trict Two will be casting
their county/state ballot at
the Ambulance Building
and will also need. to go to
the Community Building to
vote in the City Election.
Candidates in Group I
have incumbent Earnest
Morris pitted against chal-
lengers Harold Armstrong
and Mark Yoder.
In Group II, incumbent
Supervisor of Elections Cora
Sue Robinson said she expected
between 63% to 68% of Gulf
County's registered voters to go to
the polls today [Thursday], in the
first primary election for Florida
and Gulf County. "'That doesn't
sound like a very good percent-
age," Robipson said, "but the
most we have ever had to vote in
a first primary election is 87%
and we led the state in the num-
ber of voters that time."
Gulf has 7,893 total voters
registered to cast their ballots for
the primary. That means Gulf will,
send approximately 5,131 voters
to the polls today. provided at
least 65% vote.
In a breakdown of registered
voters by party, Gulf has 7,011
Democrats, 818 Republicans and
It is interesting to note
that the County will have its
first ever Republican first pri-
mary election today. -
On several occasions there
have been Republican candidates
running for election to local posi-
tions, but never has the County
had at least two Republicans run-
ningfor the same office.
This year, incumbent Repub-
lican County Commissioner Billy
Traylor is being opposed by Re-,
publican Jim Beatty, a Wewa-
hitchka restaurant operator.
CHANGE IN POLLING
In addition to the change in
the usual strictly Democratic bal-
lot, there will also be changes in
two traditional precinct voting lo-
cations. For many years, Precinct
10 in Port St. Joe has cast its bal-
lots in the: Scout Hut on 10th
Street. This polling place has
been changed to the Mosquito
Control building, farther east on
10th Street. Ironically, the Scout
Hut isn't located in Precinct 10,
but the Mosquito Control build-
Another polling location
change is in Wewahitchka. Those
from Precinct One, who formerly
voted in the Fire Station in Wewa-
hitchka will now vote in the Com-
JUDGES WILL BE ELECTED

City Brakes Variances
Compost Pile Experiment Can Eliminate Need for Incinerator Services
The City Commission has
* drawn the line on issuing vari-
ances for building on property in-
side the city limits, after Tuesday
Their most recent variance
request, of a virtual stream of re-
quests over the past several
months, has been a request for a
lb foot variance' on a piece of
property which requires a build-
ing be built 15 feet from the side
'That only leaves five feet on
the side of the building," Mayor
Frank Pate remarked. "I have
problems with that."
Bill Wood, an insurance
agent and member of the Com-
mission, said, "When the insu-
rance companies find out we're
handing out variances almost
wholesale, they are going to take
a look at our insurance rating
and are likely to raise it. The in-
surance ratings-as well as the
ascetics of a reasonable amount
cf space between buildings-is
the reason for our location re-
quirements in the first place.
We're creating a fire hazard," he
Tharpe said the new subdivision
on Marvin Avenue has sparked
all the variance requests. "It's Just
hard to build a decent house on a
50 foot-lot and still meet the set-
back requirements. But, we've got
to put a stop to it. If one person
puts up a fence, you can't drive a
utility truck between the houses
as they are being built."
The Commission reached a
unanimously agreed-upon deci-
sion Tuesday night, not to award
any more variances except in ex-
treme emergencies. One of those
emergencies will not be because
there is not enough room on the
lot to build a particular house as
presently required. Either the
builder will be required to pur-
chase more property or change
When Ward Ridge voted to be
included in the City Limits of the
City of Port St. Joe, the City fell
heir to ownership of the former
Ward Ridge City Hall. For most of
that time, the School Board has
had some of its administrative of-
fices located in the building, pay-
ing no rent, and some are still
there. This year, the Board has
made arrangements for their 'of-
fices to be consolidated in reno-
vated headquarters in the old Vo-
cational building, to the. rear of
the high school'.
The city reached an agree-
ment Tuesday night for a five
year lease to Marquis Home
Health service, for $1,501 per
month, with an option to buy the
building after the five year lease
The City will now serve notice
,on the single school board office
still in the building to vacate the
building by October 15, so Mar-
quis can move their operation.
COMPOST IDEA WORKS!
Public works superintendent
Frank Healey presented the Com-
mission with a jar of compost,
Tuesday night, which his depart-
ment had generated from table
garbage and grass clippings.
Healey said the system has been
worked down to where it is finan-
cially feasible, reducing garbage
by 75% and creating a useful
product in the process.
The process will mean that
the city can dispose of its garbage
without the expensive process of
having to haul it to the Bay
County incinerator for disposal.
Healey was given the green
light by the Board to proceed with
developing a commercial compost
operation for the city's use. Heal-
ey estimated the operation would
cost about $75,000 to build a
large enough facility to handle
the city's garbage.
This will be used on conjunc-
tion with its recycling program to
handle all the city's refuse. Yard
trash goes to the County landfill
[except grass trimmings, which
will be incorporated into the com-
post operation]. Cardboard, glass,
plastic, and cans are separated
for recycling and now the com-
post operation will eliminate any
need 'to use the incinerator and
give Port St. Joe a complete recy-
cling program of all its waste.
Probably, it will be about the
first community or city in the
state of Florida to do so.
Healey said he will have his
plans more definite later this
month and make them known to
the general public.
"We really couldn't have done
it without the willingness of our
people to cooperate with our oper-

Fire Damages Home
A fire, believed to be caused by electrical problems, complete-
ly destroyed the kitchen area of Deborah Gliem's home at 707
Long Avenue Friday at approximately 11:00 a.m.
The fire was confined to the kitchen area, which was in the
process of being remodeled. There was no one at home when the
fire broke out.
Firemen battled the stubborn blaze, which, originated be-
tween two layers of wall paneling. Fire Chief John Ford said
damage to the kitchen was "100%" with some water and heat
damage to the remainder of the house.

After 56 Years
We're Still Here and Going
Strong In Spite of Hardships
THE STAR BEGINS A NEW year of publication with this
week's issue. That's 56 years completed and beginning on year
57. Over a half century of printing the news every week, and
never an issue missed, in spite of wars, hurricanes, rain, high
water, illness or death.
No matter what the circumstances, the. paper has gone out
on its appointed publication day, though, admittedly, it was a
chore to do so at times.
For 42 of those 56 years, the present editor has been at the
.helm doing the best he knew how to bring you the news and ex-
.press the position of the paper on the several important matters
which have called for comment or a definite position on our part.,
THIS WEEK DOESN'T mark the first year the newspaper
was officially a newspaper. That date is October 27, 1937, but
the, newspaper was printed as a sort of check-out-the-water-
with-a-free-publication type newspaper. So far as we know,
there are no longer any copies in existence of the newspaper
printed during the months of September and October until It re-
ceived its Second Class mailing permit in late October, 1937 and
started publication, officially.
The first issue contained eight tabloid pages [approximately
3/4 the size of the present newspaper] and remained with that
size sheet until our anniversary date in 1953. It has remained a
broadsheet size newspaper ever since.
THE FIRST ISSUE contained an editorial setting out The
Star's editorial policy .and it hasn't changed since the paper was
first founded. -
Our policy was, '"We can't please all our readers all the time
in our striving to take the correct position. We are a newspaper
which believes that newspapers, like people, are judged by who
our enemies are as well as by who our friends happen to be."
That first issue also stated, "It's a darned poor excuse for a
.newspaper that doesn't make somebody mad once in a while."
. From the comments we have received over the years, we -
think we have managed to keep from being a "darned poor ex-
cuse for a newspaper."
ARIZONA CHEMICAL'S PRESENTATION to Port St. Joe,
High School this past week was only the most recent in a host of'
gifts to our public schools designed to increase the quality of
learning Gulf County youth may receive at the hands of our
teachers. Arizona is to be congratulated for their public concern,
as well as the many others who have made monetary and "in
kind" contributions in the past and in the future.
We never cease to be amazed at how students of today, along
with the assistance of scientific developments over the years, are
capable of accessing knowledge we never dreamed existed 30,
40, or 50 years ago. Students today take this capability as mat-,
ter of fact and don't consider it a miracle.
Because, some other "Arizona Chemical" or other benefactor
f- the-scioolt program- In the past has contributed to flit'chal-
fehge action of the system to provide the money and the tools
for some student to stretch himself and develop those tools.
A DOLLAR SPENT ON learning is never a dollar wasted or
Some student will learn just the right equation through the
tools being developed today, to provide the sustenance to a bet-
ter life maybe in our lifetime. all because somebody in-
vested in the future. '
G Giving money to athletics, stadiums, teams, playgrounds,
swimming pools, etc., is popular and all well and good. We con-
tribute to these things every year, because we know they are
necessary to build a well-rounded individual. But, to invest in a
mind is an investment in a better civilization.
IN THESE DAYS OF crime and violence, we need a boost to-
ward the moon. Thinking of journeys to the moon helps to take
the place of violent thoughts or inclinations, which we firmly be-
lieve are caused mostly by frustration.
But an individual, a race, or a nation striving to improve so-
ciety has no time in their daily schedule to steal something
which belongs to someone else, hurt someone for no apparent
reason, ot kill someone just because they want to see if they can
get away with it.
Do you think those boys 'in Monticello would have been out
late at night, hunting a British tourist to kill, if they had been in-
volved in learning something constructive?
I knew this day was coming.
I'd known for eighteen years this
day was coming. It just got here a

"He needs you! Just give him
some good, sound fatherly base-
ball advice. You know he's going
to come in here and look up at
you like he always does and you'd
better be ready!".
Son of a gun, two minutes
later, here he comes. He stops
and gives me the Daddy-I'm-a-
"Uh-- Son-- uh-- keep your
shirt tail tucked in and run on

I shifted uneasily in the hall'.
Cathy was saying, "Now, Son, if
you need anything, you call-"
'Yes ma'am." Good old Josh,
he answered just like that was
the first time this weekend his
mother had reminded him about
Of course, we, were not totally
unprepared for this- moment.
Friends who had sent sons and
daughters off for the first time
told us how "it would tear your
hearts out". Listen, it can't be
that bad. I'm semi-intelligent. I
understand how it works. It will
be tough-but we're not the first .
couple in the history of the
known world to send a young
man off to college. We can handle
this. I mean, it's not like he was
going off to war. He is eighteen-
it's his time. It can't tear your
heart out when you know you're
doing the right thing. All you
have to do is reason through it.
I saw his little -hand go
around his mother's back. Except
the hand wasn't so little and he
was bending down, not reaching
up to hug her. I knew Cathy
wouldn't cry in front of hhri. She
had steeled herself for this mio-
ment. ... -
I thought of those yellow
Osh-Kosh pants with the match-

I look for it to take at least
another month for him to spin his
yarn of surgical adventure to eve-
ryone who will listen.
Frank's adventure was exag-
gerated somewhat by the fact that "
he had never been in a hospital
before. He never had reason to.
When he was born, the midwife
helped his mother through the or-
deal of birth back in the back
bedroom, out in the country on
the farm, in that little south Ala-
bama town; or rather, about eight
miles out in the 'country behind
that little town in south Alabama.
HE'S HAD 26 YEARS experi-
ence being Mayor of the town, but
no experience at being a hospital
patient. The nurses at Bay Memo-
rial Hospital found that out, too.
I understand he asked for a
30,000 mile road hazard guaran-
tee on his hernia surgery and a
pledge that they would replace
his gall bladder just like it was if
he wasn't satisfied.
You probably'don't know the
hard bargaining side of Frank
Pate like those of us who witness
him in'operation [no pun intend- ,
ed] at the. City Commission meet-
ings. Contractors are lucky to
come out of any negotiations with
him with their shirt intact.
I saw a guy one time trying to
sell the City a service, actually of-
fer to pay extra to allow the job to
go to another firm. He just want-
red to leave while he still could
call his gold teeth his own!
FRANK FIRST HAD a hernia
operation by the out-patient
method. He wound up with,com-
plications from the anesthetic.
His lungs started filling up with
He staggered through that .
session with the surgeon's knife
and was forced to, go back to '
work a few days after the surgery.,-
Old Frank was, sort of getting to .
, where he liked those days off and
he held his side and complained
and sat around downtown in his
station, telling everyone about his
adventures in the Fun House for-
mally named Bay Medical Center.
Smiley Anchors asked one
day to see his scar. "If Lyndon
Johnson could show the world
via television his scar, you ought-
to be able to put yours on display
for a while. It'll prove you were
really in the hospital and not just
Leonard Belin, another regu-
lar Visitor at the station said,
"Frank, if I was you, I would
'charge admission to see that
S"THAT STIRRED FRANK'S
,interest so much, he decided to
go back to the hospital and get a
gall bladder operation so he
would have a real scar and make
some big money! .
With a gall bladder removal, I
understand where they cut you
from belly-button -to- arm-pit
Frank heard that one too and he
was all excited!
Not only,~would he get a self-
,respecting scar-he had only that
small band-aid scar from his out-
patient surgery to show-but he
could return to the wonderful
world of bed pans and hospital
gowns which won't quite close in
It will probably be many
moons before anyone comes by
his bed again at night, shakes his
shoulder at 2:00 in the morning
Old Frank sleeps better when
people are clattering tin pans out-
side his bedroom door, clomping
' up and down the hall, singing,
laughing, shouting, moaning,
groaning, whistling and snoring.
After 45 years spent at the
service station, with its attendant
noises, he probably felt right at
home and slept like a log.
BUT, IT'S ALL OVER now.
Frank is back at home and
spending more and more time at
the service station. If you had
ambitions about seeing his scar,
you had better make an appoint-
ment. 'I understand there are at
least 50 ahead of you and you

^/// Thoughts On B an ning The Nets
With the ,beginning of the
1994-95 school year on August
11, Port St. Joe Middle School of-
ficially opened its doors as an au-
tonomous middle school. During
the summer major renovations
were made to separate the middle
school from the'high school to the
greatest extent possible. Walls
were built separating C-pod and
part of B-pod from the high
school. Areas of shared access,
the media center, the common
area and gymnasium were sched-
uled to accommodate the middle
school as an entity.

Some thoughts on the pro-
posed constitutional amendment
to ban nets. I am of the third gen-
eration of our family; and my for-
ty-year-old son is of the fourth
generation; to make a living from
the waters of Florida. For over
100 years my family has fed mil-
lions of Americans, with the same
tools that I use today. There were
good years and bad years, as
many things in nature are cycli-
cal. Then came the dredges.
Now, there are sea-walled ca-
nals and houses where there"
were once pine trees and deer. Of
course, there are thousands of
acres. of mangroves and grass
beds lost forever,, to say nothing
of the clams, scallops, oysters
and countless other creatures. A
young friend recently told me of
the day his family stood next to
the bay in Venice, and watched
the dredge come. A young, im-
pressionable lad, he watched his
big, strapping dad break down,
and cry like a baby as the ma-
chine relentlessly spewed millions,
of shreds of clams on the spoil
pile. This particular bed had fed
and clothed his family for several
years, and he' knew it was gone
forever. He learned to fish a gill
net, and joined the rest of us.
Now, Just a few short years
later, this same man and his son,.
now a strapping man with four
children of his own, stand on the
bank again, joined by thousands
more. Again, we face another
mindless, uncaring machine just
as relentless as the dredge. This,
time it is a rumor mill, spreading.
lies and hatred, devouring, people
and their lives, with no more logic
or purpose than the dredge. We
are people human beings, the
same as everyone else in this
state. We are the first true envi-'
ronmentalists, because we de-
pend on this ecosystem to feed.p
and clothe our families.
If you will talk to biologists
who have studied'this issue, you

will find they don't support the
net ban and feel it will serve no
purpose other than to destroy an
entire culture of people.
If you will allow netters and
an industry that supports 40,000,
to 50,000 Jobs to be ground into
oblivion today, will it be you to-
morrowi? When will the machine
come for you and your life? Who
will defend you from the lies?
No... To Casino Gambling
While I was talking to my
daughter In Mississippi, we had a
conversation about the casinos
being put on the ballot in Novem-
ber for Florida voters, and these
are some of the facts that she
gave me about what is happening
there in MS since the casinos
have been voted in that state.
My daughter and her family
have taken a stand against the
casinos. because they know what
gambling can do to a family. For
example, there was to be an out-
ing for the employees and their
children -where my daughter
works. She was approached by a
co-worker who asked if she would
put a deck of cards or a sun visor
with the Logo of the casinos in a
goody bag for. children. My
daughter said definitely NO be-,
cause that would be encouraging
gambling to the children. Parents
even go so far as to take their
children to the casino's amuse-,
ment areas, while they gamble
their week's wages. Is this 'the ex-
ample we are able to set for our
future citizens of America?
The owners of the Casinos
had promised to use the local citi-
zens for the jobs they furnished.
They are now laying off the local
employees and hiring the experi- %
enced employees from Las Vagas;
thus leaving local citizens without
jobs. My daughter said one lady
was treated like a criminal in that
the owner gave no notice of re-
placement. They Just came in and
escorted her out of the casino
and told her she Was being re-
placed by an experienced worker.
What they are doing to their State
should not be tolerated by local
citizens, and should definitely tell
citizens of Florida something.
. She said they are .bussing
Senior Citizens from other states
to gamble their life savings away.
What happens to these Senior
Citizens when they lose all of
their savings? The government or
the families have to support them
the rest of their lives.
The housing situation there
is really booming. Houses are be-
ing built In Just a month with
building material that is below
building standards. She over-
heard a real estate saleslady
mention that she hated to sell
these houses to anyone in their
present condition. The price rang-
es on these houses are $80,000
to $90,000 minimum. The houses
are built an arm-length apart.
She said the destruction from a
hurricane would be like Hurri-
cane Andrew all over again, but
in MS. If there was a hurricane
headed their way, the casinos
could not be moved for there are
too many and they would block
the evacuation access from the
bays. Florida citizens, Is this
what we want in our State?
A Lounge owner is even try-
ing to have an ordinance changed
so he can have a Strip Tease
Lounge built next door to a
church and school. Do we also
want this in Florida?

,Winning this ,meet was a
great way to open the season and
boost the confidence of the young
Shark cross country team.. '
Last season the Sharks en-
joyed their finest season ever. The
team finished second in both the
district and regional meets, and
qualified for the state meet. At
the state meet, the ,team. finished
11 th and junior Kenny Daves fin-
ished 9th. He became the first lo-
pal cross country athlete to ever
earn AJI-State honors.
In 1994, the Sharks will com-
pete in District I-AAA along with
Baker, Freeport, North Florida
Christian, and Pensacola Catho-
lic. The top two teams at the dis-
trictmeet will qualify for the state
cross country meet.
In the pre-season state rank-
ings,. Pensacola Catholic is
ranked #1, North Florida Chris-
tian is ranked #7, and Port St.
Joe is ranked #8. This is where
the strongest district competition
should come from this season.
Pensacola.Catholic won the state -.-
championship last season and is
a heavy favorite to repeat this feat
this season. North Florida Chris-
tian returns most of last year's
team, which placed 10th at the

Ted White, 62, was leading the
overall championship. His 75
gave him a one-stroke lead over
Stacy Kirvin, 32, and a two-
stroke lead over defending cham-
pion, Dave Blackshear. Three-
strokes behind, from the Senior
Division, were Eric Schoelles and
Gary Howze. Gary Howze had an*
eight-shot lead over Kenny Wood
in the Senior Divislon (ages 50-

In Sunday's final, Stacy Kir-

Too Late For Good
If you have teeth that
would never be used In a
toothpaste ad, do you think
It's too- late to do anything
about It? Do you wish your
parents had had "your teeth
straightened or reshaped
when you were a child so
they'd look good now?
It's not too late to do
something about if. Correc-
tive treatment Is not Just for
kids. In fact, about 20 percent
of all the corrective treatment
performed In this country is
performed on adults. This fig-
ure will probably increase, as
more and more people real-
ize how much their dentists
can do to Improve their ap-
"Buck teeth" or crooked
teeth, for example, can be so
unattractive that the person
who has 'them tries to hide
them by not smiling. They're
embarrassed about their
mouths. But "buck teeth' can
be reshaped, unsightly gaps
can be filled, and crooked
teeth can be straightened.
That will not only give a lift to
your appearance and per-
sonality, but It will Improve
your dental health as well.
Keeping your teeth and
gums healthy are good rea-
sons for seeing your dentist.
So is Improvement of your
personal appearance. Ask
your dentist about it.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Shark motion play to get a drive
started. With David Hysmith dig-
ging for six yards and a, first
down, Will Sumner scrambled for
12 and Hysmith broke loose for
25 on. three successive plays.
Sumner again kept the ball and
squirmed to the 12, but a clip
penalty brought the ball back to
the 21. Sumner then found Tra-
num McLemore at the goal line
with one of his half dozen passes
In the game, for six points. Hys-
mith kicked the extra point and
the Gators were ahead at half
The Sharks nearly evened it':
up with a spectacular pass from
quarterback Ryan Yeager Intend-
ed for Andre Thomas at the goal
line. Troy Williams was defending
and had about four or five inches
of height on Thomas. Williams
and Thomas both jumped for the
ball and Williams came down
with it, cutting off the threat just
before the whistle.
The Gators came out of the
locker room after the half time
rest period, growling and snap-
ping. They laid down a perfect on-
side kick and recovered it at the
Shark 48 yard line. But the Ga-
tors started going in the wrong di-
rection. Shark pressure and pen-
alties pushed them back to their
them down or keeping sputtering
Gator drives going.
Late in the third quarter, the
Gators fumbled on a hand-off at
the Shark 38 and Brian Jenkins
pounced on the loose football.
In two plays the Sharks had
the ball at the 22 and appeared to
be on the way to a score, but pen-
alties again shut them down.
In their next possession,
starting from their own 27, Ryan
Yeager found Mandricka Miller on
a 22 yard pass play to start an-
other drive. Three plays later,
Yeager again connected bn a per-
fectly thrown pass to Andre
Thomas for a touchdown, which
was called back by another
penalty The Sharks stayed on
the ground then and got efforts
by Des Baxter and Thomas, gain-
ingyardage in great gulps be-
fore the ball was fumbled on the
Gator 23 with the Gators coming
up with the loose ball.
The Sharks finally got on the
score board with 2:18 remaining
in the game in a well executed
drive which started on the
Sharks' own 49 yard line. Yeager
kept it for a big 22 yard gain; a
Gator foul added five more yards
and Doyle Crosby pulled down a
pass at the three yard line. Three
seconds off the clock before they
coughed it up again, with a punt
deep Into Shark territory.
The Sharks had 222 yards

leading ground gainer with '61

Juvenile CrimeBecoming Worse Problem
THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. SEPT. 8. 1994
"Juvenile crime is growing
and becoming an even worse
problem In ourAnation and in our
county," Glenn Hess. Panama
'City attorney, told the Rotary
Club last Thursday. Hess, in-
volved in the Juvenile system in
Panama City for more than 15
years, said the problem is out-
stripping authorities' facilities to
deal with it.
"In Bay County, we are pres-
ently constructing a "Boot Camp"
to deal with the worst of the
worst problem juveniles," Hess
said. "But even this innovation is
Inadequate because it can hold a
youth for only four to six months
and he is back out on the street
again, with no after care."
Hess said the new camp Is
being staffed' with retired service
personnel, "the tougher, the bet-
ter," In order to direct the young
people in matteirs of respect, re-
sponsibility and discipline. There
are no policemen on the staff of
the boot0camp operation.
"We recognize the 'reaL prob-
lem is that so many children are
going through their adolescent
years in single parent families. So
often that single parent Is a fe-
male and has to scrape out a liv-
ing for her and her child and the
child is left to its own devices,
which leads to delinquency," Hess.
said. "A child needs a father." he
The speaker said the problem
was growing because the number
of single parent families is grow-
ing to the point where the num-
ber will reach 40% of our chil-
dren In just a few years at the
present rate of growth.

The first football game of the
season was tremendously exciting
and successful. The Gator Sound
Band did an excellent job of play-
ing and inspired a lot of team
spirit, both on the field and from
the stands. We hope you enjoyed
the half-time show; the hard work
really paid off. A lot of new rou-
tines are being Incorporated into
this year's show. The majorettes
gave an excellent performance
with their fire batons, and we're
proud to have the flag corps back
this season. The majorettes and
flags are under the direction of
Micah Peak, and the dance line is
sponsored by Debbie Cole.

'Hard Work Pays Off" 7 Times in 28 Years
There are those rare moments in history where the obvious un-
derdog rises to the top (David "rocked" Goliath, etc.), and so It was'
Friday night as the WHS Gators upended the PSJ Sharks. Tranum
McLemore and Andrew Williams caught the "bombs" tossed by Will
Sumner, but that's only three of many heroic efforts that led to the
victory. Every run, every tackle, Indeed every play and player con-
tributed to a-team win. If you weren't there, you should have been,
because these moments don't happen very often. To be honest, the
cards are usually stacked in favor or the larger school, so you'll
have to pardon us if we celebrate a little. To the Sharks' credit, their
late TD and ability to fight back had Gator fans a little nervous un-
til the final whistle.
Congratulations to Wayne Flowers and the coaching staff, who
proved that hard, work and patience still pays dividends.. However,
athletics is like the movies the question "what have you done late-
ly" needs to be considered. While the big win over PSJ was great,
youi have to come back to earth quickly and realize that Bronson
comes to Gator field Friday night at 7:30 p.m., the same Bronson
that pounded us last year with the best, running backs we saw all
Well, Open House was.a huge success as a large number of
parents turned out for a rather "informal" gathering. Everyone just
milled about, meeting and talking with teachers. It matched last
year's "best-ever" turn-out, and shows that parents are ntersted,,
in their high school. Thanks for coming '
La1bor-'Da holiday is gone-now the long grind starts as we
'work 'towards Thanksgiving. In October, students will get a long
weekend because of teacher inservice days October 24th, and 25th.
Progress reports should be out by now-please check them
carefully and call if there are problems indicated. No need to wait--
get behind your student now.
Please support the Gold Card program with a donation when
you are asked, and even if you're not asked! And by the way, the
phone calls about the Game Commission needing to come pick up
some dead Gator meat seem to have stopped, at least for this year.

Jak, Clemn Make the
SSel'ection for Cabinet
Me and Uncle im Rednek over on Flat Creek west of Tallahassee.
are proposing our ilrst maverick ticket for the Florida primary elections
o',e-"tember 8, Including the selection of Gentleman Jack Gargan over
Gd.; Lawton Chiles as the Democratic nominee.
V'4Wi are fir-'Gargan because she spent his own money in a Throw the
Hypocritical Rascals Out campaign in the last election, now feels the best
way fd-help is ,*Am himself, and isn't campaigning on taxpayer money. A
lot ofpre'stlgious newspapers feel theDemocratic deserves Chiles and his
liberalrunning mate, former Congressman Buddy MacKay. Me and Clem
like the )emncrats more than that. Heck, we often vote for them in the
General electiont...like four years ago when we both believed Chiles really
wanted to downsize government..
I It was more, difficult, picking a Republican, but we settled on young
` Jeb Bush, the Miami businessman who has great ideas about governing
and needs a chance .to prove them. Yes, the fact that he is the only major
candidate not accepting free public tax money to campaign on had a
'great bearliqg on our selection. .Like;Gargan, he is also an outsider.
It was difficult decision because Jascksonville's Sen. Ander Cren-
shaw deserved support for already stopping some of Chiles' free-spending
habits; -Keri Connor is a true conservative Christian badly needed in
some political office; Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher Is as tough
on crime as anybody; and Treasurer Jim Smith is probably the most ef-
fective conservative public office holder in Florida today. They all deserve
a shok, but it can't be...
We also like Arturo Perez, the unusual Winter Haven physician who
has his own national health care plan, for Democratic nominee for the
U.S. Senate over Hugh Rodman, Mike Wiley, and Ellis Rubin. Perez was
once elected to the Cuban House of Representatives, but never served.
Instead, he fought Fidel Castro at the Bay of Pigs, was wounded, rafted
to sea where he was rescued and returned tot he.U.S.-Me and Clem
would like to see a man with that background in public office. His health.
plan is' bound to be better than the one Bill Clinton is trying to spoon-
feed to us.
4VWeby no means prefer Dr, Perez over Incumbent U.S. Sen. Connie
mack in the November runoff, but he appears without doubt the best of
We'd also like to see GOP Frank Brogan, superintendent of schools in
i : Martin County, In the Nov. 8 general election for Commissioner of Educa-
tion with Democrat John Griffin of Ormond Beach, mainly because
bouthboth candidates believe in a voucher system to give students a
choice of either public or private-religious schools. Front-runner Doug
Jamerson, a lawmaker who was appointed to the post by Chiles, is highly
qualified with years of experience on the Education Commmittee int he

with them to private or schools and is too much an Integral part of the
present failing school system.
Jamerson is the only candidate against vouchers. It is true that the
Commissioner of Education does not alone decide that issue. Other cabi-
net members and lawmakers are responsible for It too. But the Educa-
tion Commissioner is expected to show the leadership.
Believing that five terms .are really enough, we mavericks would like
to see Comptroller Gerald Lewis runt into term limits with the selection

can nominee in the general election in November.
The only state senator's race we mavericks thought we should pick is

Florida to the ocean above Jacksonville and south halfway to Tampa to

freshman Sen. Charles Williams needs all the help he can get In his
Democratic primary. Uncle Clem and me think he did a creditable job in

prayer in schools when many Senators took a walk on it. Williams broke
with Gov. Chiles on the health care reform package and says tax money
for campaigning is welfare for politicians. We disagree that those are rea-

cal candidates. It gives politicians for certain major statewide offices pub-
lic money to campaign on if they limit contributions to $500 or less.
Wouldn't you know, they've already found a way to get around the $500
limit by giving from as many corporations as an individual controls.
The first pay-day last month was over $4 million for the welfare of
politicians running for ofTice. That figure is likely to be multiplied several
times before the general election.
The Florida Supreme Court has a hand in this. It ruled Chiles' law
was constitutional. Republican as well as Democratic candidates are tak-
ing advantage of it...and that Is the right word-taking advantage.
It would have been far fairer if, like in the federal law, taxpayers,
could VOLUNTARILY contribute to campaign expenses. Better yet, Flori-
da could do as England does. Require television and radio stations to air
free political forums for all candidates.
THE NEWS ROUNDUP:
TALLAHASSEE (WNS) State division of elections records show that
98 percent of the $4 million plus campaign fund of the Proposition for
Limited Casinos came from 55 individuals and corporations who stand to
profit the most from allowing big-time gambling in Florida.
Never before has a drive to amend the state Constitution raised so.
much money from so few.
The Florida Supreme Court did.not release rulings last week on
Thursday, which is its habit, on the constitutionality of Limited Casinos
or the four tax limiting amendments that were argued two weeks ago.
State records showed late this week the casino drive Is almost exclu-
sively bankrolled by parimutuels. Las Vegas-backed casinos, and others
who stand to profit directly if up to 47 sites for casinos (12 on riverboats)
is oked by voters in the Nov. 8 general election.
No Casinos Inc., the group fighting the legalizing of casinos, raised
only $200,000 in its campaign to fight casinos.
Big spenders in the Limited Casinos from Las Vegas were: the Golden
Nugget, $425,000; Boyd Gaming. $325,000: Mirage Resorts, $287.000;
and Rio Suite Hotel & Casino, $176,000. Florida gambling interests con-
tributing were: Palm Beach Kennel Club. $250,000; Thomas Kramer, a
Miami developer, $237,000. and Orange Park Kennel Club. Jacksonville,
$250,000. Another big one was casino equipment operator Promus Cos.,
GEE! HE'S BACK:
Gerald Gee, assistant journalism professor at Florida A & M Univer-
sity who was fired last year for using the "N----" word before a public re-
lations class, was back teaching last week on another one year contract.
But he is still under investigation by the college administration and
his new contract does not guarantee him he might not yet be fired for
good. The Board of Regents ruled this summer that Gee was dismissed
by the administration without following proper procedure. The reinstate-
ment order was only to apply until FAMU President Frederick Humphries
reconsidered his decision.
Gee, who is white, apologized for his remark that failing to make the
most of opportunities could be considered by some as a "'N----' mentalil-
ty...the sort of mentality that could keep us all on the back of the bus for-
RACISM CHARGED: U.S. Sen. Bob Graham and U.S. Attorney Gen-
eral Janet Reno are guilty of reverse discrimination for only considering a
black candidate for the middle district of Florida's U.S. attorney post,
says a white finalist who was turned down for the job last year.
\Vest Palm Beach attorney Walter Postula said the upcoming selec-
tion of U.S. Magistrate Charles Wilson. of Tampa, Is in violation of Gra-
ham's guidelines that he wouldn't recommend any nominee not chosen
by a federal judicial nominating commission he formed last year and that
the nominating process would start whenever a vacancy occurred.
Graham's chief aide said that President Clinton, Reno. and Graham
had agreed to allow Reno to fill the post because of her knowledge and
the need to fill the position quickly. Wilson will replace U.S. Attorney Lar-
ry Colleton who was reassigned to Washington after being filmed scuf-
fling with a TV cameraman in Jacksonville. Colleton was Florida's first
black U. S. Attorney.
CHILES STILL LAGS: The newest poll- shows Secretary of State Jim
Smith and Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher in a dead heat
for the runoff spot on the Republican ticket with frontrunner Jeb Bush
and Gov. Lawton Chiles still unable to get 50 percent of the statewide
Election observers aren't about to count Chiles out as he hasn't be-
gun to spend his lush campaign fund because he has only token opposi-
tion from unknown Tampa businessman Jack Gargan in the Democratic
But the bad news for the Chile's' campaign is that heavy advertising
featuring some bitter infighting in Central and South Florida has lifted
the standing of Republican candidates instead of as Chiles had hoped -
brought them down.
Bush is fighting some unfavorable name recognition, according to
the poll. So voters apparently don't like his father, former President
George Bush. although he carried Florida in his last race. The big ques-
tion is: will Bush get 40' percent of the vote in the crowded field of seven
GOP candidates in the first primary September 8. election? He'll need
that much to win easily in the second primary.
TATE'S HELL: The Nature Conservancy has signed a $10 million
agreement to purchase 6,800 acres of unspoiled swamp land around Ap-
alachicola Bay and turn it back to the U.S. Forest Service for preserva-
tion. a spokesperson for the environmental group said last week.
For $2.3 million, the Conservancy bought an initial 1.985 acres last
week along New River in Franklin County and agreed to purchase the
rest of the wilderness for a total price of $10 million in the next three
The Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that acquires sensitive
land in cooperation with public agencies. Denise Rains of the U.S. Forest
Service said that the first parcel of Tate's Hell will be converted to federal
ownership by the end of September. She said eventually ass of the Tate's
Hell New River Corridor will become part of the Apalachlcola National
Forest, linking the surrounding 212,000-acre wilderness to Apalachlcola
The initial purchase was from McDonald Investment Co. of Birming-
ham, Ala. which has unsuccessfully tried to promote housing on some of
the river-front acreages. .
