Weekend Storm 'Pounds Gulf
Dumps Five Inches of Rain In
Florida Power service men tend to a dangerously*
leaning power pole in the ANRR service yard Sunday af-
ternoon during a lull in the storm.

Port St. Joe actually got off
lighter than most of the affect-
ed area, with a reported 4.88
inches of rainfall from 7:00
a.m. Saturday morning until
7:00 a.m. Monday. Some por-
tions of the Panhandle record-
ed up to a total of 10 inches
during the 48 hour period.
Rainfall in the Port St. Joe
area "was- -measured by the
Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Reports from rain gauges in the
beaches area, maintained by
home owners, reported up to
nine inches of rainfall over the
The heavy rains began
about mid-afternoon on Satur-
day and continued until mid-
afternoon Sunday with inter-
mittent showers until about
The downpour filled drain
ditches to the brim, with some
flooding reported. A block of
Battle Street was completely
inundated by rain water. Wind
:gusts blew limbs off trees and
helped topple undermined utili-
ty poles. One such pole was lo-
cated adjacent to the AN Rail-
road shop, with Florida Power
removing any danger from the
pole in case it fell.
Power went off for a few
seconds twice' during the
storm, but never failed for any
period of time.
The side of a tree fell on a
telephone transmission line on
Monument Avenue, but didn't
disrupt service. .Disaster work-
men removed the tree from the
line before it broke.
Emergency crews were
alerted but the storm didn't get
quite bad enough for them to
be needed very much.
This block on Battle Street was com- the 24-hour period of nearly incessant
pletely inundated with water, as were rainfall Saturday and Sunday. The adja-
several streets in Port St. Joe following cent homes narrowly escaped the flood.
An Economy M
Florida Power has told the
City Commission that they intend
to close their Port St. Joe office
sometime early in December.
The utility has been closing
offices in some of the smaller
communities they serve, for the
,past year. Last year, they en-
larged local manager Mike Mc-
Donald's territory considerably,
in an economy move as they 'cut
back on forces. The Carrabelle
and St. Mark's offices were closed
at that time, but Port St. Joe sur-
vived the cutback.
Now, offices in several smaller
communities will be closed as a
further economy move.
S OFFICE AT APALACHICOLA
The.business: office for this
area will be in Apalachlcola. with
the possibility of contracting with
someone locally to accept pay-
ment of electric bills. The Apa-
lachicola office will serve the

cerning problems or questions.

Gulf County Sends
11% of Voters to Polls
Voters Give Nod to Wiley, Brogan;
Name Fails to Carry Rodham
Gulf County poll workers felt more lonesome than the
Maytag service man Tuesday, as electors stayed away from
the polls in droves.
Gulf County Republicans and Democrats, alike, had
only one question on Tuesday's ballot to attract them to
the polls. As a result, the County sent only a measly 11%
of Its electors to the polls to cast their ballots.
Supervisor of Elections Cora Sue Robinson reported
that only 712 of Gulfs 7,893 registered voters even both-
ered to cast a ballot in the short ballot which was expected
to face attendance problems all across the state.
With the ballot containing no local candidates or ques-
tions to be decided, people stayed away in droves on what
was otherwise a perfect day to hold anrelection.
GULF DISAGREES WITH REST OF STATE
As a result of the light vote and a disgruntled attitude 1
toward the President and his wife, Hugh E. Rodham hardly
had enough votes to count in his bid for the senate seat
now occupied by Senator Connie Mack. ,
Rodham was soundly defeated in Gulf County, by a lop-
sided 261 vote majority out of a total of 656 votes cast. Un-
known Mike Wiley received 458 ballots, or 69.81%9, in his
bid for election. Rodham had only 197 votes, or 30.03% of
the ballots cast in the election.
Voters over the state, however, gave Rodham a majori-
In the one Republican question on Tuesday's ballot,
Frank T. Brogan carried a narrow margin of 27 to 25 votes
over his Republican opponent. Bob Morris.
Potential electors, who are not now registered to vote,
have until October 11 to register with the Supervisor in or-
der to be able to vote in the November 8 general election.
The registration books will close at the end of the work
day, October 11, and remain closed until after the general

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6,1994
SINGAPORE HAS SHOWN US the way to keeping peace once
again. Not only do they have an effective remedy for the petty
crime of defacing someone's property, such as scratching the
paint on a new car, but they also now show us they know an ab-
solutely effective method of dealing with the drug problem. The
solution guarantees they will have no repeaters. They hang 'em!
The story in the News-Herald last week, about the gang in
SBoaifay caught dealing in a half ton of marijuana and finally
sentenced by the courts after nearly a year, brought another ar-
ticle to mind we read recently about the same crime in Singa-
The Bonifay people got a few years in prison, which will
probably equate to two or three years actually served, then they
will get out and get to enjoy their ill-gotten gains.
But, don't even count .on them having to serve a couple of
years. They haven't had their first appeal of the verdict yet.
Some of our local drug dealers have been caught, sentenced,
gone to prison and caught again before the year was out. They
didn't even serve a year in prison. Some of them didn't even go
to prison. They got the opportunity to go on community control
so they could stay in business.
IN SINGAPORE, RECENTLY, four men were hanged after
being found guilty of dealing in drugs.
Hanged! As.like having a rope tied around one's, neck, lifted
off the ground and left there until the hang-ee is dead!
What a deterrent to drug dealing! We can imagine such a
penalty is pretty effective.
We remember when the small city-state gained world-wide
notoriety for switching a young man's bare posterior for a charge
of criminal mischief. The city-state didn't back down. As a re-
sult, they can expect no more mischief out of the young man.
They will spend no more money trying to apprehend the four
drug dealers. They will not be faced with having to rehabilitate
the lives ruined by their actions. It's over! Done with! That case
is closed! But not forgotten!
We wonder what would have happened if the four miscreants
in Bonifay had been hanged on the Courthouse square at
high noon for everyone to see .. for their crimes?
We aren't advocating hangifig or switching here; we're just
-saying these forms of punishment have done a number on the
trime rate in Singapore.
Is He or Isn't He?
JEAN-BERTRAND ARISTIDE isn't quite certain, yet, wheth-
er he appreciates the United States pulling his chestnuts out of
Sthe fire. Then again, maybe he is certain.. He isn't all that en-
thralled that the United States was the only one who would and
could do it. Or maybe he thinks the United States preparing the
way for him to resume power is also paving the way to set him
up on display in the Haitian shooting gallery.
We think Aristide felt more at ease playing the Haitian mar-
tyr who had been deprived of his duly elected position than he
was at actually having to fulfill the role.
He seems unhappy, or not quite pleased, that we allowed his
Enemies to continue to live inside the unfortunate nation's bor-
Maybe "uncomfortable" is the word to' describe his attitude.
Definitely, he is uncomfortable.
RUT WHO COULD feel comfortable in his position? He has
been tossed out of office-only after being elected-once already
"'ad allowed to merely leave the country. The next time, we're
sure he has considered, he may be invited to leave in a pine box.
Somehow, we don't picture the ungrateful leader of the Haitians
as overly patriotic nor involved with the well-being of "his peo-
ple". He seems to us to be more interested in old number one.
You know, kind of like the leaders of the military junta presently
in power in the nation ... for the next 30 days, at least.
When old John Aristide came to Washington, D. C. to offer
his thanks to the American people for liberating his country for
him, he seemed to fairly choke on the words, 'Thank You". 'One
would think he either didn't care to say them or someone had
forced them out of him.
THERE'S A LOT OF Americans who are not too crazy over
the deal, too. If they had their druthers, there would be no
American soldiers in Haiti. There would be no American dollars
feeding and caring for Haitians and Cubans in Guantanamo.
They're uncomfortable, too, with the whole deal, but probably
not for the same reason Mr. Aristide is. The Americans will be
glad when our troops are pulled out and return home, but will
Mr. Aristide? It would seem that will be when his problems begin
in earnest! That will probably be when his days are numbered ..
and he knows it!

Raffield showed six different

prepared to combat what is being
labeled by the fishermen as 'un-

Eugene, presented a sneak pre-
view of the ads, as well as a five
minute film clip of the fisher-
men's side of the charge which
accuses them of being responsi-
ble for killing manatees, porpois-
es, turtles and pelicans by their
operations with nets. Raffield said
government monitors went on
fishing boats in 1992, following
reports they were killing turtles.
'"The monitors were with the
boats for nearly four months and
Ao 1 ,1tprtie was even caught in
Olthe nets, much less killed, he
saidT""These facts are verified by
the National Marine Fisheries
Commission," he continued.
Raffeld pointed to the eco-
nomic impact the net ban would
have on Florida tourism. "If we
can't catch it, there will be no
fresh seafood to attract tourists to
our thousands of seafood restau-
rants throughout the state. These
restaurants are now a major at-
traction to the state."

"Our state would lose over $1
billion every year, presently gen-
erated by the seafood industry,"
Ramfield said. 'This doesn't in-
clude the millions of dollars in
sales tax, the income from the
thousands of fresh seafood res-
Staurants or the Income to the
40,000 families involved in sea-
,food production," he said.'
As an example, Raffield said
that 80% of the shrimp available
to. the Port St. ,Joe area alone,
come from waters affected by the
proposed net ban. "Where is that
shrimp going to come from if the
ban is approved?" he asked. He
said that even sport fishing would
be affected adversely by the ban.
because most of the live bait used.
by sports fishermen are caught
by net fishermen. "If the ban is
approved, there will be a severe
shortage of bait for sports fisher-
men," he said.
STARTED IN TEXAS
The speaker said the net ban
idea started nearly 10 years ago
in Texas. "Like now, it sounded
like a good idea to the average
man then until he took a
hard' look at it and saw what it
could do to the industry. It will
put fishermen out of business or
chase them out of the state, pure
and simple." he warned.
Raffield said that if the net
ban passes,. his family of six gen-
erations of fishermen are consid-
ering moving to Louisiana. "But.
if the net ban forces are success-
ful in Florida. it will only be a
matter of Uime before they will at-
tack Louisiana. If the movement
continues, you won t be able to
buy an ounce of domestically pro-
duced, truly fresh seafood at any
price, the seafood you get will be
foreign produced. frozen, certain-
ly not fresh like the people of
Florida are accustomed to."
Raffield said. the fishermen
are going to be fighting furiously
for the next 30 days to educate
the people of Florida as to just
what a total rnet ban would do to
the state. I

Elderly/High Risk Groups Urged to Get Flu Vaccine
I ---- -ommn7 u 1n-tue interQ r r~p
Health Officer Dr. Charles S. Ma-
han urged elder Floridians and
others in certain high-risk groups
to obtain vaccinations against in-
fluenza and pneumococal pneu-
monia before the start of the up-
coming flu season.
"In 1993, more than 3,650
Floridians died from influenza
and pneumonia," said Dr. Mahan.
"These deaths are particularly
tragic because many could have
been prevented through a simple
Individuals who are at the
greatest risk for influenza are:
*People over the age of 65;
*Adults and children with
long-term heart or lung problems,
including children with asthma;
*Adults and children who
have diabetes or see a doctor reg-
ularly for kidney problems, ane-
mia (including sickle cell), or im-
mune problems; and
*Children and teenagers (ages
infant to 18 years) who are on
long-term aspirin treatment.
"Floridians cannot rely upon
previous flu vaccinations to pro-
tect them because different flu
strains often dominate each sea-
son," Dr. Mahan said. "On the
other hand, vaccination against
pneumococcal pneumonia, which
may develop as a complication of01
a flu infection, usually provides

on a regular basis, vaccinations
must be given each year to pro-

Common during mthe winter
months, influenza is usually only
a minor illness for most healthy,
young people, but it is highly con-
tagious and can lead to life-
threatening illness in high-risk

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
By Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Did You Know?
Only on television is there violence that is even supposed to be,
funny? But, grownups know that real violence causes pain and sad-
ness. Just as children learn from their older brothers and sisters,
they also learn from their television heroes:
*Some children who watch violence on television learn to fight-
*Others learn to become victims;
*And, many learn that violence is fun to watch, even in real life.
These kids encourage their friends to fight.
Television characters use violence to solve their problems: We want
our children to solve their problems without fighting.
What Can Parents Do?
Here's how you can help protect your child from television violence

Circuit Judge Glenn >-Hess
brought his toy electric train
presentation to the Rotary Club
Thursday, speaking of the trains
as though they were people.
Hess said he received his first
electric train when he was a child
of about 10 and has been mes'-
merized by them ever since. "Eve-
ry child should get an electric
train for Christmas at some time
in their lives," Hess said.
Hess said toy trains have be-
come a love affair with both he
and his dad for their entire lives.
Showing off some of his train
collection, Hess said he has col-
lected them over the years, pur-
chasing some from Individuals
who wanted, to get rid of them
and purchasing some from shows
and sales throughout the South.
He said two of the favorite toy
train shows in the south are, in
Asheville, North Carolina during
the summer and in Tampa, at the
fairgrounds the first week end af-
ter January 1.
"I've bought many trains by
just placing a classified ad in the
paper," he said.
"Trains are a Christmas tradi-
tion at our house," he said. 'They
are set up all around the Christ-
mas tree and throughout the
room where the tree is located. All
my kids have trains and appre-
Hess said there were two pri-
mary manufacturers of electric
toy trains during their heydey.
There was Lionel, perhaps the
most popular "and longest lasting
of the models. A Lionel is like a
Timex watch; it takes a licking
and keeps right on running," the
The other more popular train
and better than the Lionel in
some ways, was the American
Flyer. The American Flyer was
made by A. C. Gilbert, originator
of the erector set. Gilbert first
used plastics in making the toys
and was able to make them re-
semble real trains more easily.
"Both trains were just magnif-
icent toys." Hess said. 'Today,
you can still buy Lionel trains,
but they cost a good bit of money
for a toy. But, they always have,"
he said. Lionel has long since
bought out American Flyer.
Hess produced an old adver-
tisement by Lionel which revealed
the toys could run on electrical
current, dry cell batteries, or, "the
battery out of dad's car."
New members Ken Hicks and
Robert Brooks, were Inducted
into the club.

hadn't intended to buy. Well,
don't be frightened away by such
tales. The auctioneer realizes
when you are bidding and when
you are not.
In order to bid at an auction,
you need to make contact with
the auctioneer or the ringperson.
To do this, hold up your bidder

The auctioneer will make eye con-

immediately turn and seek anoth-

from the process at any point by

Homecoming is just around the corner. October 14, the Gators
host the Chattahoochee Yellow Jackets at 7:30 Central. Prior to the
game, the King & Queen will be crowned in pre-game ceremonies;
and prior to that, the Parade will kick-off at 2 p.m. School will be re-
leased at 12 noon to prepare for the parade. Contact Lisa Jordan at
the high school, if you want to sponsor a float or whatever. Many
Alumni have been contacted to return, and maybe even attend the
homecoming dance after the game in the commons!
Volleyball is up and. down. After a big win, over Altha, we
dropped a doubleheader to Sneads. Most of the matches are excit-

should take care of our A/C problems for years to come.
Report cards went out Monday, with the usual .moaning and
groaning. If you have questions, please call and arrange a confer-
ence with the teacher. While we encourage teachers to call parents,
it is often difficult to reach parents who work or are away from
home for other reasons. Often meeting with the teacher explains a
lot of things, especially if only one side of the story has been pre-
sented. Call the schools to arrange appointments during planning
periods or at the end of the day.
Senior portraits will be made October 13. We are trying a new
company this year which usually results in temporary adjustments,
but the sample pictures presented to us appeared far superior to
the ones we've used in the past. There is a higher sitting fee, but
still less than local Panama City photographers charge. Help sup-
port your school by having your pictures made at school.

Court May Kill
More "People Support" Than
Either Casinos or Net Ban
As election time nears, it appears the Florida Supreme Court may
leave the voters in November with only that watered down-version of tax
reform lawmakers have proposed as a constitutional amendment.
They still have a month, of course, but it appears those fellows in the
$400 suits aren't likely to put three tax cap and one property protection
citizen initiatives on the ballot, fn spite of the fact they carried more gen-
uine unsolicited voter signatures (more than 500,000) than any of the
other proposed amendments, including casino gambling.
If they are, they'd better do it soon for the people of Florida are going
to need 'some time to consider the merits of each of the initiatives in or-
der to cast an informed vote. The old news hound has a feeling in the
back of his neck the verdict of "no, you're not going to control taxes" will
come from the court at the opportune time selected by the judges, who
really do read the newspapers and look at the six o'clock news onT'V.
The fear by incumbent lawmakers, the top office holders, big govern-
ment bureaucrats, so called environmentalists, teacher unions, and even
maybe the high court judges themselves, is that voters will automatically
vote to limit taxes on themselves and the governing class will suffer.
It's a bum rap. Studies show that tax ceilings only mildly control gov-
ernment spending because of the ingenuity of the political class and the
willingness of voters to approve new taxes if shown they are needed.
The legislative proposal which will be on the ballot is simple enough.
It would tie government revenue growth to average personal income.
When income of the taxpayers go up, then taxes can go up that average
percentage amount. Lawmakers could ignore it with a two-thirds vote,'
thus retaining the taxing authority they now have.'
The citizens initiatives are much tougher, of course. They would:
Require voter approval of any new taxes, but allow legislators with a
three-fourths vote to pass emergency taxes of 12-month duration.
Require a two-thirds vote of the people (not the legislature) to raise
taxes or place a fee through, a constitutional amendment. Sponsors say.
this is an insurance policy against a Florida income tax. Critics say it
was put into the tax cap package to protect Big Sugar manufacturing in-
terests from a cent-a-pound state tax via the constitution on raw sugar,
to help clean up the Everglades.
Throw out the single-subject requirement for constitutional amend-
ments that has allowed judges to void many citizen initiatives in the past.
Allow property owners who suffer a loss because of a state action to
go directly to the court for compensation, bypassing the expensive and
lengthy administrative proceeding before the agency as now required.
It would be too much,: perhaps, to expect the court to put all four of
the citizen initiatives on the ballot, although they appear not to be vague
and confusing to the voter and do cover only one subject. Those are sup-
posed to be the only legal criteria.
They should, of course, mainly because citizens do have a right to
determine how much state spending and taxing they want.
FARMER SMITH:. Republicans and Democrats who vote for the can-
didate rather than the party don't really mind 'if Secretary of State Jim
Smith runs for the cabinet post of agriculture commissioner now held by
former Democrat, Senator Bob Crawford. Let the public decide if it was a
dirty trick to put a token candidate in the race who would agree to with-
draw if a highly qualified and well known Republican wanted to run.
Frank Darden, the lobbyist who was selected by GOP officials to qualify
against Crawford, said he was picked because he knew the difference be-
tween a goat and a chicken.
Some newspapers around the state are hollering foul, but it really,
isn't. It's politics. -
Smith said in accepting the nomination that he'd prefer the farm
post on the cabinet to his old secretary of state job and that, perhaps,
4 only the education commissioner's post would Interest him more. 1I
He told tlAs column last week he had a lifetime interest in education
and felt more decisions should be made locally on the school district lev-
el. All cabinet members have a vote with the education commissioner on
But don't put Smith down as favoring a voucher system to allow stu-
dents to take tax money to the schools their parents select for them
whether they be public, private or religious. Both Republican candidates
for education commissioner Frank Brogan and Bob Morris favor them.
So does Jeb Bush. Gov. Lawton Chiles and Education Commissioner
Doug Jamerson oppose vouchers.
"I'm not giving up on public education," Smith said. "Somiething like
that (vouchers) might be tried as a pilot project in the public system, but
I would leave it up to the local school." '
TALLAHASSEE(WNS) A new chapter in juvenile justice began Oct. 1
w. hen tougher laws and an independent agency to handle juvenile crimi-
nals passed by the Florida Legislature came on line.
Punishment as well as treatment is,made clear in the new laws
which give judges new powers backed by boot camps and nearly 1.200
new residential reform program beds added to the 2.100 the state al-
Judges can now cite disrespectful juveniles for contempt and sen-'
tence them.to five days for the first offense and 15 days for additional of-
fenses. Bad kids. sentenced to boot camps or.reform schools won't be
sent home if they're put on a waiting list. but be held in detention until
slots open up.
"The kid gloves are off. The resounding message is we're tired of kids
thumbing' their nose at justice," said Calvin Ross, former Miami police
chief who now is secretary of the new Juvenile Justice Department.
Another provision of new Florida law requires police to notify schools
when students are arrested- on felony charges and gives superintendents
48 hours to notify principals. '-
Police also will be able to release the names and photos of juveniles
arrested on felony charges or convicted on three misdemeanors. Parents
can now be found in contempt and ordered to pay costs of their chil-,
Sdren's custody or to attend parenting classes. Judges can garnish the
benefits of parents on welfare in.some cases.
The new Juvenile Justice Department was given Independence from
the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services. It has a
S$355 million budget and nearly 4,500 employees, ironically most trans-
ferred over from HRS.
DEBATE TANGO: Republican challenger Jeb Bush and Democratic
incumbent Gov. Lawton Chiles are doing the classic "debate or not de-,

more before the Nov. 8 election. Both candidates, of course say they want
the debates, but on their own terms.:.
No one is faulting Bush for turning down most of Chiles invitations
to debate such as the Women's Political Caucus round-table-luncheon in
Tallahassee which was obviously rigged in Chiles' favor. The women coa-
lition leadership held a news conference earlier in the day, ripping Bush
on his stand on women issues., It had endorsed- Chiles and Sec. of State
Jim Smith in the primaries.
There was an empty chair for Bush at the luncheon and the ladies
were ecstatic over Chiles' speech which displayed his strategy to turn the
race into a class struggle. Chiles got big cheers for his pro-choice stand
on abortion. He contrasted his background and the Democratic Party's
blue-collar base with Bush's wealthy upbringing and silk-stocking Re-
ETHICS REPORT: Florida State Athletic Director Bob Coin broke no
law by accepting a home roof job from'a contractor building the new foot-
ball stadium, but he should pay .$5,000 in a fine for creating a bad im-
pression, said Ethics Commission Chairman Joel K; Gustafson. The roof
was valued at more than $10,000. Goih paid $5,000 for it after officials
began investigating the deal.
IFSU President Sandy D'Alemberte said he didn't understand Gustaf-
son's statement and he would wait for the full commission's report before
making a decision on whether to return Goin to his job.
MONEY BACK? If you paid $295,to register an out-of-state car you
brought to Florida after July 1, 1991, you can get your money back be-
cause the state high court has ruled the fee violates a U. S. Constitution
provision that guarantees free trading,among,states.
However, there is a gotcha. If you paid the fee 'before July 1, 1991,
under a 1990 law, you don't get any money back because a three-year
statute of limitation applies. The highway department has set up a hot
line number (1-800-288-TAGS) you can call for information.
School Bus Injuries
On the Increase
The past three years have
shown a dramatic increase in
school bus accidents. Over
10,000 children were injured and
several score killed in 1992 and
1993, and at its current rate,
1994 is likely to exceed those fig-
Health and safety authorities
are deeply concerned about these
statistics since an estimated 22
million students ride school bus-
According to information
complied by the American' Chiro-
practic'. Association and -Logarn y
College of Chiropractic in Ches-
terfield, MO, from data supplies
by doctors of chiropractic whc
have treated children for structu-
ral problems, most of the injuries
have occurred in incidents while
waiting, boarding, riding or exit-
ing the bus, as opposed to actual
accidents involving the bus.
'"While there is always some
degree of danger traveling in a ve-
hicle carrying precious children,
the most significant safety hazard
seems to focus on the conduct of
the children and the supervision
they get" Florida Chiropractic As-
sociation President, Dr. Harold
Smith of Jacksonville, said. He of-
fers these safety tips:
Safety Precautions While
Waiting for a Bus
-Arrive early, so you don't
have to. dart between cars to
reach the bus.

hind, in front of, or along side of

children to the- side of the street
where the bus stops, wait with -
them-or turn them over to anoth-
er adult before leaving.
Safety Precautions While on

"In looking back on the case
histories of young patients who
have suffered neuromusculoskel-
etal injuries in bus accidents and
have required chiropractic treat-
ment, too many appear to have
been caused by negligence," Dr.
Smith said. "This calls for more
attention by parents, better selec-
tion of drivers by school officials,
and more safety awareness by

Old Pipe Organ
Conducting Fund Raising Activities
To Finish Paying for Restoration%
St. Joseph Catholic Church
recently installed ,a newly re-'
stored pipe organ. The previous.
electronic organ needed to be re-'
placed, and a committee was
formed last year to look into the
purchase of a new organ. The'
committee considered purchasing
a new electronic organ as well as
the possibility of restoring an ex- .
listing pipe organ. The quality of:
the music and the longevity of the
instrument led to the ultimate de-
cision to look for a pipe organ for
Last summer, an organ was
located for the church through
the Organ Clearing House, a non-
profit organization in New Hamp-
shire. The organ was originally
built by George S. Hutchings in
1886 for Centalia Chapel, a mis-
sion' of the, First Methodist
Church of San Jose, California.
John Huening, an organ builder
from Tampa, travelled to San
Jose to examine the organ. After
Mr. Huening approved the condi-
tion of the organ, he transported
it to his. workshop in Tampa
where, it took approximately six
months to restore. The organ was
installed in St. Joseph Catholic
Church in March. Finishing
touches were completed in May.
Fundralsing activities began
last fall with a spaghetti dinner
and bake sales. Members of the
congregation and friends of the
parish showed their overwhelm-
ing support by pledging almost
half of the amount needed to
fund the project within the first
few months. The Church applied
for a grant from the Jessie Ball
duPont Fund which was ap-
proved in November 1993. The
fund also provided a short-term
loan to help with' immediate ex-
The final fundraising activity. -
to help complete payment for the
pipe organ, will be a spaghetti
dinner on Friday, October 14,
from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Eat in or
