Residents of Gulf County had emergency
services, of all types at their fingertips now with
the implementation of the 9-1-1- nationwide
emergency number Tuesday morning at 10:00.
Gulf County's system, which is the E-911, is
state of the art and provides memory-stored ad-
dress, phone numbers, names, numbers of res-
idences, nay unusual conditions,, etc. of all res-
idents of the county who have a telephone.
The emergency system has two answering
points, the Port St. Joe Police Department and
the Gulf County Sheriffs Department, with all
calls originating in Port St. Joe directed to the
Police Department and all other calls through-
out the county directed to the Sheriffs Dept.
The system handles notification of all emer-
gency services in Gulf County Including ambu-
lance,., fire, police, and sheriff, automatically, It
also provides emergency crews with the de-
scription of the parties involved and pinpoints
their exact location for easy and accurate re-
sponse.
-Larry Wells, the county board's administra-
tive assistant, has been in charge or worked
with the committee for the past 10 years set-
ting up a 911 system and has directed most
phases of the herculean task of preparation for
service of the county's citizens with this con-
venience.


Three years ago the county levied a 500 per
telephone outlet surcharge on its residents to
pay for the system. Along with two emergency
state grants and the purchase of switching
equipment by St. Joseph Telecommunications
the county was able to complete the $500,00
expenditure necessary for the implementation
of the system. For nearly a year Marshall Nel-
son has been employed by the county as chief
director of the emergency net to complete ar-
rangements for the system and its operation.
The switching equipment provided by the'
telephone company is capable of providing the
same E-911 service to Calhoun. Liberty and
Franklin counties in addition to handling Gulf
County's needs. Officials from the three
counties were present Tuesday morning to wit-
ness the inauguration of service and are ex-
pected to follow suit in their own counties, thus
reducing by a small portion Gulf County's ex-
pense for the lease of the switching equipment.
According to John Vaughan, vice president
of St. Joseph Telecommunications, the lease is
for .10 years. "Probably within 10 years the
equipment will be obsolete", he said. Commis-
sion Chairman Michel Hammond made the cer-
emonial first call on the emergency system at
exactly 10:07 Tuesday morning putting the
long awaited system into operation.


County Commission Chairman Michael and Commissioners Jesse Armstrong, Billy
Hammond makes the first ceremonial E-911 Traylor and Warren Yeager. Commissioner

Former Resident to Speak

at Veterans Day Program
All veterans and members of the community are cordially
invited to attend a ceremony recognizing the veterans and
their contributions to our country on Friday, November 11 at
9:00 a.m. EST in the R. Marion Craig Coliseum of Port St.
Joe High School.
Guest speaker for this year's program will be Colonel Pe-
ter H. Fox, a 196,5 graduate of Port St. Joe High School.
Colonel Fox received his commission in 1970 from the Unit-
ed States Air Force Academy where he earned a Bachelor of
Science Degree in Engineering Management. He was selected
for the graduate studies program and attended the Universi-
ty of California at Los Angeles from which he received a Mas-
ter of Science Degree in Business Administration in 1971.
His present assignment is Air Education and Training Com-
mand, Randolph AFB, Texas.
During the ceremony a flag, commemorating the 50th an-
niversary of World War II, will be presented to Port St. Joe
High School's NJROTC Unit by the St. Joseph,Bay Chapter
of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The ceremony will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and dis-
miss by 9:55 a.m., thus allowing ample time to .attend the
annual Veterans Day Services at the Gulf County Court
House.
Guests who will be attending the ceremony are asked to
call the Gulf County School Board office, 229-8256, and
leave your name so that a seat will be reserved for you. On

Joe High and Middle Schools for this very special occasion.


Gulf County will have over
8,000 voters eligible to vote in the
Tuesday. November 8 general
election, and nearly 200 have reg-
istered since August 8 until the
October 11 cutoff date. According
to Supervisor of Elections, Cora
Sue Robinson, an estimated 77%
of the registered voters will active-
S ly -cast their "-ballots-a. far cry
from the 51% which voted in the
first primary and 11% which
went to the polls for the second
primary.
Constitutional Amendments
Two of the proposed constitu-
tional amendments on the ballot
have generated staunch opposi-
tion in Gulf County. The pro-
posed amendment number three
would limit the use of fishing nets
over 500 square feet within three
miles of Gulf County's coastline.
Gulf County's history of being a
fishing village for many decades
has generated considerable oppo-
sition to the amendment here and
is not expected to pass, although
its future on a statewide basis is
still nebulous.
Constitutional amendment
#8 would allow casino gambling
In every county In the state of
Florida. Both of these amend-
ments have drawn vehement op-
position from Gulf County's citi-
zens.

questions five, six and seven deal-
Ing with limits on taxation are
currently being heard by the
United States Supreme Court.
They appear on Gulf County's
ballot, though some of the
counties throughout the state did
not include them on their ballots.
Proposed amendment one
would give a starting date for the
Florida Legislature, and amend-
ment two would place a limitation
on state revenue collections.'

City To Use Miled Asphalt

to Repair Potholes and Alleyways Within City Limits


The City Commission decided
to purchased milled asphalt from
Baxter's Construction Company
during its regular scheduled
meeting Tuesday night.
According to Mayor Frank
Pate, he had inquired of officials
from the paving company as to
their intentions of disposing of
the millings they had removed
from Highway 98 inside the City
limits, in preparation 'for the re-
surfacing of that section of high-
way. Pate reported to the Com-


mission that the material could
be bought for $200 per truck load
or $10 per ton.
Superintendent of Public
Works Frank Healey told the
Board that the millings have
proved to be a great substance for
use as a base in repairing pot
holes. Healey said the material
could also prove valuable in the
city's current alley repair project
for filling in holes, as well has
controlling some erosion prob-
lems.


Pate said that Baxter had
quite a large amount of the mate-
rial, but felt that the City should
purchase all of it and stockpile it
to be used as needed on city pro-
jects. On a motion by Comm. Lin-
ton and seconded by Comm. Ed-
win Williams, the Board approved
the purchase of the milled as-
phalt.

Gulf Schools Receive $260,450 Grant

to Implement Blueprint for Career Preparation Within School System


For the better part of last
year, teachers, administrators,
and 'guidance personnel from
each school worked to implement
Blueprint for Career Preparation.
The Blueprint for Career Prepara-
tion provides a matrix for system
wide and organizational change
with all levels of education, kin-
dergarten through postsecondary,
being affected. It utilizes a com-
prehensive school Improvement
model which incorporporates school
level decision-making, feeder pat-
tern articulation and community,
business, and family involvement
in the process. It is a guide for
preparing all Florida students to
succeed in a competitive global


marketplace and is designed to
address the increasing gap be-
tween emerging job requirements
and the ability of Florida's work
force to meet them.
The Blueprint Steering Com-
mittee met and identified six
areas of emphasis for the imple-
mentation plans of each school.
They are as follows;
1. Staff Development; 2. Cur-
riculum Improvement; 3. Articu-
lation between Schools; 4. Self
Awareness and Personal Assess-
ment; 5. Career Awareness and
Development; and 6. Evaluation
of the Blueprint program.
Under the staff development


component, teacher inservice ac-
tivities were planned, site visits to
other schools scheduled, and op-
portunities for teachers to attend
state conferences were presented.
The purpose of this component is
to help teachers become more fa-
miliar with initiatives being used
in other Blueprint schools
throughout the state. With this
information, teachers will become
empowered to help their students
gain the skills necessary to be
successful in our advanced tech-
nological society.
The curriculum improvement
component of the program em-
phasizes upgrading and changing
existing curricula so that stu-


dents fiave more opportunities to
gain knowledge that will lead to
successful futures. The essential
components of curriculum
change are increasing emphasis
on technology, demonstrating the'
relevancy of the subject to the
"real world," using problems to
apply and extend subject content,
and breaking the barriers be-
tween vocational and academic
instruction and between academ-
ic instructional areas. The deliv-
ery of learning is restructured so
teachers become facilitators and
classroom managers, student
team organizers, providers of in-

Vote Nov. 8

ELECTION DAY.IS TUESDAY and the ball is now definitely
in your court as an elector and citizen of Gulf County and Flori-
da. Probably at no time in history has Florida faced a more cru-
cial vote-crucial to the people and the state-than is faced
Tuesday, November 8.
People from.all over Florida need to' be concerned not only at
electing a governor during a year in which you have a clear cut
choice between candidates of opposing mind-sets but also' at
electing new cabinet members than at this time in history. In
fact voters have the responsibility Tuesday for changing a major
portion of high government officers in our state and nation.
FLORIDA ALSO FACES two important issues which every-
one needs to be vitally concerned with; everybody from one year
old to 100 years old. These questions can affect our state detri-
mentally through the ages to come. And you don't have to be a
fisherman or a gambler to feel the effects of these two vitally im-
portant questions.
Naturally we would, like to see every person in Florida voting
against the proposed net ban and the proposed casino amend-
ment, and we feel in so doing everybody would be the director of
their own destiny. But even so it Would be our wish that at least
most of the voters would vote against these two issues which we
$iave relegated to the realm of the most distasteful of amend-
ments which might be passed in Florida.
- WE URGE THAT YOU set aside a few minutes next Tuesday
and go to the polls, casting your opinion on the issues and the
personalities on the ballot, one way or another. Preferably we
would have you vote our druthers, but if enough of you oppose
our druthers and would like to see Florida be another Las Vegas,
Nevada or Gloucester, Massachusetts then by all means express
yourselves and don't sit back after the election is over commiser-
ating the results one way or another. Whichever question wins
will be your responsibility and not that of "them" or "they".

The first play, or "drama" as
Miss Carolyn called it, that I ever
saw -- I was in. We staged this
production in late November and
of course it had a Thanksgiving
theme. Miss Carolyn hand picked,
me and Yogi for what she called.
the "introduction to the'grand fi-
nale." We didn't have a clue what
she was talking about. We Just
-stood over behind the curtain
until Miss Carolyn whispered
"now" and shoved us toward the-
center of the stage. We held the
cardboard masks up in front of
our faces like we had practiced,:
.gobbled twice, and exited stage
right. My acting debut came and
went rather quickly.
I don't recall much about that;
first drama. I think it had some-,
thing to do with Indians and Pil-
grims eating corn on the cob to-i

plunged backwards off the stage
into Mr. J. A. Abernathy's lap

I took it as a high compli-

My acting career kinda' went
into remission for the next several
years. I figured I was washed up
by age twelve and was concen-
trating on the Baseball Hall of
Fame when Mr. Wallace Milam
asked if I'd "be in" the junior.
class play. Like an idiot I said
yes. I don't know how far back
you go so you may not remember
the junior class play. Listen, that
thing was a production We prac-
ticed for weeks and weeks' Every

It's Your Fault!
ONE OF THE REASONS and perhaps one of the major rea-
:sons to you that we should cast our ballots Tuesday became ap-
parent last week as the Tax Collector announced the property
;tax notices being mailed but for fiscal 1994.
People from all across the nation, to quote recent television
news casts, are mad as hell over continued rising taxes with
apparently no valid reason for doing so. We realize some in-
crease in taxes is necessary both from a standpoint of increased
population and new services the population have expressed a
desire for having. But by and large over the nation people are
angry at the rampant use of tax money to perpetuate a term in
office through favors and pork-barrel expenditures.
We don't see this happening much in Gulf county on a local
basis, even though our taxes are up by a million dollars. Most of
.,hls increase came from new property going on the rolls and
Somehow or other our public officials have seen a need for an-
other million dollars in their coffers.
Over the nation however we see millions and billions of dol-
lars being collected and spent needlessly by our so-called public
servants. How do they get there? We either vote them in when
we go to the polls or else we let them remain by not going to the
polls. Voters who are not tied, placed in prison stockade, or re-,
fuse the use of the ballot have no one to blame but themselves
pver the sorry state of affairs our nation finds itself in-not even
the politician.
V COME ON, LET'S GET real now and admit to the cause of
bur gripes and complaints. People are ultimately responsible for
their own destiny whether it be a trip to the 7-11 or a detennrmina-
tion of the route to follow for a satisfying and rewarding career.
It's our fault, yours and mine, that our state of public affairs
is In such a dismal fix. We got it there and only you' and I can
make it any better in the future.
Be responsible. Admit your own personal shortcomings and
those of the nation. Come to the realization that you and you
alone can correct the situation as you would like to see it cor-
rected.
i If you think you belong to the "mad-as-hell" group and fail to
cast your ballot to express your desires, you're not really mad at
all. You're satisfied and deserve to be..


yelled 'Look angry. LOOK AN-
iRY. CAN'T ANYBODY UP
THERE LOOK ANGRY?
Well, I wasn't angry. But if he
didn't shut up ........
Besides the fact that it was
hard work, I only remember two
things about that play. I had to
kiss FRAN SMARTT and Betsy
Dinwiddie played a big football
coach who we made share deliv-
ered her lines from the very back
of the stage.
The next year Mrs. Ingram
pulled me aside, "Kes, the senior
class play is coming up -- we've
got this part that was made for
you ..
y No thanks. Playing turkeys
and kissing Fran Smartt was
-enough for me. .
Dr. Abbott Martin taught,
among, other things, English Lit-
erature at the University of the
South in the late 60's. As a part
of our grade, he insisted that we
journey down to Chattanooga and
catch a play some touring Euro-
peans.; were putting on. Now,
Abbo didn't actually make the


trip with us and about half way
through Act I we understood why.
They spoke with a Chaucer like
English brogue that I couldn't
make heads nor tails of. Everyone
wore tight stockings and if I'm
not mistaken boys played girl
parts. They'd have a big sword
fight and after the unlucky one
got stabbed, the others would
gather 'round and break out with
a song. By Act III most everyone
had been "stuck through the mid-
dle" and they were down to just a
couple of singers. When Abbo fin-
ished reading my essay on the
play he looked up, over those half
glasses, and peered at me i'n dis-
dain, "Colbert, did you even make
the trip to Chattanooga?"
I've said all this today to sim-
ply let you know that I have been
around the block when it comes
to plays. I do have a clue as to
what is going on. Of course, to be
honest, I don't really enjoy them
all that much. I can't even re-
member the story lines to the one
I had a part in .....
*I saw a drama at the First
Baptist Church this past Sunday
night that was different from any
I have ever. seen., Judgment
House spoke to me like the Pil-
grims, Indians, Fran1 Smartt and
MEN in tights couldn't. I under-
stood the message. I pondered
the choices and, plights of Chris
Peterson, Natalie Gray and Bud
Miller. The story was not a new
one, it's, been around since the
Beginning, but folks, I tell you, it
came alive at First Baptist. I
couldn't believe the work and the
amount of people that had come
together to present this message
to our community!
First Rate.
Arden Stephens looked like a
doctor. The young kids died right
in front of us. Becky cried thirty
times a night for five days. God
sent us to Hell. Satan was more
correct about "having us" than
we'd ever admit-- and the choice
is the same for us as it was for
those three teenagers.
It made me stop'and rahss
some things .. .
Sissy was odr' guide. When
she got down to the "In my Fa-
ther's house are many mansions"
part I saw the tears in her eyes --
bless her heart, this wasn't a play
for these folks, it was a MATTER
of life and death
And so it is for all of us.

Thank you so much,

I'm A 12 Cylinder Engine Now Firing On One Cylinder

After a week and two days taking
it easy, having pretty girls wait on
me hand and foot all day long,
the rest is over. Now comes the
part of getting into shape to play
"newspaper" again,
I'm as weak as a kitten,
grouchy as a lion, hungry as a
bear and have the patience of a
hummingbird. and almost the
same amount of strength.
I can tell you I got that way
through the pokings, the prod-
ding, a week without a shower
loath or head wash in a night-
gown Which rode up to my waist
every time I got up. My sense of
decency has been violated so
much as to be almost nonexistent
any more.
Everything from trying to wee
wee in a bottle to eating off a tray
while lying flat of my back was
enough to try the patience of Job.
And then to cap that off-no
shower bath and no head wash,
not even a decent sponge bath
made me smelly, as well as un-


comfortable and exposed.
I WILL SAY THIS THOUGH .
..if you have to go)to the hospital
Bay Memorial I suppose is about
as good a place as you can go for
food, care, and pretty nurses.
They have evidently quit
training cooks to fix hospital food
so that it tastes like cardboard
and reverted to putting a little of
taste in what you get. I ate pretty
good and the nurses I believe are
a little bit over zealous in their
care. No ringing the bell calling
the nurse because one is going to
show up at least every 15 min-
utes. They take your tempera-
ture, your blood pressure and all
your other vital signs, one right
behind the other. One day I had
one barely get out before here
came another for the very same
reason.. I don't know who got all
the ugly nurses when the hiring
was done, but I think Bay Memo-
rial got all the pretty nurses;
young and vigorous, sunny per-
sonalities, and a determined, re-
lentless compelling drive and de-

DURING MY HOSPITAL"
STAY, I had three rookies as fel-
low sufferers and they did suffer,
I think. One was a back surgery
patient who had to have the room
kept like an icebox, another a,
brain surgery candidate who
couldn't sleep and kept the televi-
sion going all night, and the other
an emphysema victim who liked
to watch Red Holland at an "un-'
godly" hour in the morning. He
also had a penchant for "Un-
solved Mysteries" and that rascal
would turn to every channel that
had a first run, re-run or other
depiction of an unsolved mystery.

I now hear Robert Stack's voice in
my sleep. By the way the third
roomie couldn't sleep either and.
made sure that, no one around,
him slept.
THE HIGHLIGHT OF the en-
tire week was actually two high-
lights. One came Friday when
they sent that mechanical worm
up my arteries from my groin to.
my head searching for stop signs
along the way. There that doctor,
was with that plumber's snake
running around in my innards
and he was talking to another fel-
low about what kind of racing
bike to buy, and how he liked his.
They talked about everything ex-


cept what'they were doing, and I-
wondered 'if What they were doing'
was being done right, but I guess
it, was since everything came out
all right.
Every once in a while they'd
stop and set me bn fire with a
_squirt of iodine dye and then
move onto the next place. That
was one procedure -that I was
glad to get rid of. The other high-
light came Wednesday the day be-
fore I got out of the hospital when
a pert, little nurse got in the
shower with me. There I,was, the
right arm and right leg wouldn't,
work to save their neck-in a
,shower with the cutest little Eng-
lish girl that you'd ever hope to
see and all I could think of was
covering up with that dinky, little
wash cloth. I must be getting old.
But boy it was a relief not to
smell like a can full of week old.'
garbage again.
PHYSICAL THERAPY was in-
troduced to me about Tuesday


"and let me tell you that is a har-
rowing experience if you're so
weak that you can't stand up to
comb, your own hair but still I
was' embarrassed by how I looked:
and smelled.
They turned me over to the
cutest, perkiest little Filipino girl
that you ever saw. There she was,
probably not even five feet tall,.
weighing about 95 pounds,
throwing me around, like I was a
bean bag. And believe me I'm no
light weight bean bag. She was
determined to get me back on my.
feet and walking once .again-and
she did that through prodding
and threatening until I was afraid
not to walk. Along with the occu-
pational therapist they kept me
turning cart wheels till a doctor
finally turned me loose to save
me froin any other harm.

.Now it's back in the hands of
"Sergeant Frenchie" who is seeing
that I-toe the mark but I think I'll
stay anyhow.

Dead Man Coming
'A young, aspiring writer once approached .Wlliam Faulkner
and said, "Mr. Faulkner, I have a deep. burning desire to write.,Can
you give me some good advice?" William Faulkner looked at. the
young man and'without hesitating said, 'Young man, if you want to-
write...writel"
And that's what David Middlebrooks, a resident of Panama
City, has done. His new book, "Dead Man Coming", is one, of the
most interesting books I have read in many-a-moon. In it is the
true st6rles of somp of the most famous and infamous men and
women currently on Florida's death row. The book went on sale Oc-
tober 1st. I was fortunate enough to get an advance copy, signed by
the author;
SIf you are a person who doesn't believe in capital punishment
and you don't want your mind changed, you shouldn't read this
book. The stores in this book are true, taken from actual court doc-
uments, showing the true horror of the crimes that put these men
and women on Death Row and they are presented in graphic, chill-
ing detail. These cases epitomize the type of individual for which
the death penalty was created. .. ,
The people depicted in this book %wre unable to live by society's.
rules, so they lived by their own. No 6he was safe from them, not
family, not the police, no one, as you. will see when you read this
b oo k : : :' .. 1 ., : ', : "
They prowled the streets of major 'cities tnd small rural com-
munities alike, looking for their victims. They bragged about their
abilities to kill, to rob, to rape, and to terrorize whole communities.
Some were so proud of their crimes, they even videotaped their.
murders to show others.
If these were not true stories, taken from' actual cases, no one
would believe human beings could be so cruel and sadistic to one .
another.
Read the book and tell me you don't think these people should
be given the same fate as their victims tell me you don't believe
in the death penalty then
Read about William T. Zeigler, Jr. who, on Christmas Eve,
1975, murdered his wife and her parents and another man, then
attempted to make it look like a robbery gone bad. He did this to
collect on his wife's insurance, a policy he had taken out on her
some weeks earlier. His problem was one of his intended victims es-
caped and testified against him.
This man has a right to live?
Or, what about James Hitchcock who,-after drinking beer and
smoking marijuana for a few hours one summer night In 1976,
brutally raped and killed his brother's stepdaughter. She was 13
years old. After the act, committed at about 2:30 a.m., he went into
his brother's house, showered and went to bed.
He should have taken his seat in "Old Sparkey" years ago, in
my opinion
And there are 109 other such cases in this interesting and in-
formative book, some a lot more chilling and brutal than the two
above. if you can believe that.
The title, "Dead Man Coming", is the chant that prisoners on
death row say when a man or woman is taking their last walk to
the room that houses "Old Sparky".
David Middlebropks, the author, is not without credentials. He
graduated from Criminology School at Florida State University. He
is a Marine Corps veteran and was decorated during the Vietnam
War. He has also worked in law enforcement with several major
criminal defense law firms.
David is a fine man and I'm glad to say, he a friend of mine. He
signed, my, book. "To. Wendell Canmpbell:-You're not.much., but'I like
you. Your friend, Daid, hl lebrooks.'' ,.- -.- .. .- .. ,
Read his.book and you won't have a problem remembering to
lock your doors at night.


Rabid Coon In Wewa; Those

In Contact Are Being Sought


A case of animal rabies has
been reported by the Gulf County
Public Health Unit. Several weeks
ago. a raccoon was found in the
wild and kept by a family in We-
wahitchka. The animal was tested
this week and diagnosed .with ra-
bles. At this time. it is uncertain
where the animal was actually
found. Several, family members
and friends anI schoolmates of a
family member were allowed to
pet and hold the animal; some
were bitten or scratched by the
raccoon.
Environmental Health per-
sonnel and nurses of the Bay and
Gulf County Public Health Units
are investigating and interviewing
those who have been in contact
S with the raccoon.


Anyone who has been bitten
or scratched should contact the
local health department for ad-
vice. In addition to rabies, other
infections are possible.
Also, this incident points out
the danger of petting or trying to
capture wild or stray animals.
The public is reminded not to
take these animals 'home as pets
and especially not to bring them
to school.
If there are any questions,
call James M. Cersosimo, Jr.,
D.O.. Director of the Gulf County
Public Health Unit or Douglas M.
Kent, Environmental Health Di-
rector at 904-227-1276 or 904-
227-1202.


Helps to Fight Net Ban
Members of the welding class of Port St. Joe High School, un-
der the direction of instructor Tommy Knox, decided to get into
helping the community as they staged a mullet dinner to raise

ed the Board of the annual Toys
for Tots campaign. The program,
conducted by the Port St. Joe Vol-
unteer Fire Department, is get-
ting off to a slow start according
to Linton.
Members of the Fire Depart-
ment, located behind City Hall on
Williams Avenue, are at the sta-
tion from six to eight p.m. Mon-
day Saturday to receive toys or
non-perishable food items to be
distributed at Christmas to fami-
lies with a need.
Anyone wishing to help with
donations to the project are urged
to bring used or new toys and
food goods to the station. The lo-
cal firemen are donating their
time to fix up. paint, clean, reju-
venate, and rebuild the used toys,
getting them back into like-new
condition before being distribut-
ed.
Unton said, 'The City Com-
mission and the community need
to get behind this worthwhile pro-
ject."
Thank Merchants for Ha-
lowe'en -The Board felt it
should draft a letter to the Down-
town Merchants Association
thanking them for their involve-
ment in the Hallowe'en activities
Monday night.
Linton said, "There must_
have been a 1,000 kids dressed
up going from store to store trick
or treating downtown". He
thought that the merchants who
stayed open late, giving candy
and greeting the children, should
be thanked for what they did in
making this Hallowe'en safe and
enjoyable.
Change Workman's Com-
pensation Policy. The Board de-
cided to change its current work-
man's compensation policy.
Currently the city is making up
the difference in what workman's
compensation pays and an em-
ployee's regular pay. Under the
new provisions an employee's ac-
crued sick leave wouldbe used to
pay that difference and when it is
used up, then an employee would
have the option to use their vaca-
tion time to make up the differ-
ence.
Other,items of business.

Litter Alert Week has been
created by the Garden Clubs of
Gulf County and surrounding
counties to let each member and
every other man, woman, and'
child know the content of the
Florida Litter Law. It is an excel-
lent law passed by the Florida
legislature in 1971.
They want this Litter Alert to
be followed the same way the
Seat Belt Buckle Up and Drivers'
License Alerts were used, and
stress DON'T LITTER as a way of
life. '
Area clubs thank those who
have cleaned the highways and
streets-but these intrepid Indi-
viduals cannot keep doing this
.chore for the rest of their lives.
How long .do they stay clean?
How many times are our streets
and highways littered again be-
fore they can even be cleaned?
p" Isn't there a better way?
Read the law! Talk to mem-
bers of area civic clubs, city po-
lice, county sheriffs, highway pa-
trolmen and women, marine pa-
trol, forest rangers, park rangers
s- and so many more that can help,
in this endeavor.
A Litter Alert week was creat-
ed in Gulf and Bay Counties in
1993 and two mayors made proc-
lamations stating a Litter Alert
Week. Area newspapers took pic-
tures of the signing. Members of

Florida's anti-litter law states
in part that any person who
dumps litter weighing less than
15 pounds is liable for a fine of
$50 plus the violator may be re-
quired to pick up litter or perform
other labor commensurate with
,the offense committed.
Any person who dumps litter
weighing more than 15 pounds is
guilty of a misdemeanor of the
first degree. Further, if the viola-
tion involves the use of a motor
vehicle, upon a finding of guilt,
whether or, not adjudication is
withheld or whether imposition of
sentence is withheld, deferred, or
suspended, the court shall for-
ward a record of the finding to
the Department of Highway Safe-.


ty and Motor Vehicles, which
shall record a penalty of three
points on the violator's driver's li-
cense.
This is a worthwhile program
when you consider the. Florida
Department of Transportation
has spent over $60,000,000.00
cleaning up the roadways since
this law was passed.

Each school in Gulf County
will spend a major portion of their
Blueprint dollars to implement a
Career Awareness and Develop-
.ment Laboratory. These labs will
house state-of-the-art computers
and software. Students will be
scheduled into the CAREER LAB
at each school to learn about cur-
rent computer technology, and to
learn about different types of ca-
reer opportunities that exist for
them. The students will progress
through a personalized program
that will help them decide what
type of career interests them and
what course of study they need to
pursue to be able to enter that
profession. School personnel are
.VERY excited about the imple-
mentation of, the CAREER LABS

Casinos: A Bad Bet for Florida


by No Casinos Chairman
Andy Hines
In a few days, Florida voters
will go to to the polls to decide the
future of our communities and of
our state.
In the most important elec-
tion this Fall, there will be no
candidate. Rather, it will be on an
issue--the issue of whether or not
to change the constitution of Flor-
ida to legalize high-stakes casino
gambling.
That's because in a couple of
years, we will have an opportuni-
ty to re-visit the decisions we
made about those who represent
us in the halls of government.
But if Amendment 8 is approved,
the State of Florida, our quality of
ife, our worldwide image, the
safety of our streets, and the
* communities in which we live will
be changed forever.
Casino gambling interests are
spending .more money than any
other campaign in the history of
Florida. Just 57 donors have giv-
en their campaign more than
$10.5 million -- most of which
has come from Las Vegas and for-
eign interests. They will spend
more than either candidate for,
governor, and perhaps more than
both candidates combined, trying
to buy our votes.
From the beginning their
campaign strategy has been four-
fold -- to exaggerate casino bene-
fits, to downplay casino impacts,
to deny casino consequences, and
to hide from the casino track
record.
They claim that casinos will
help tourism, create jobs and add
to state tax revenues. Nothing
could be further from the truth.
If casino gambling would be
so good for tourism, why does
Florida's tourism ,industry vehe-
mently oppose Amendment 8?
Those who speak for our state's
flagship industry -- the Florida.
Attractions Association, The Flori-
da Hotel-Motel Association, The
Florida Restaurant Association,
and the Florida Department of
Commerce -- all oppose Amend-
ment 8.
That's because casinos are a
predatory industry which succeed
at the price of destroying local
jobs and businesses. While Las
Vegas attracts a number of visi-
tors, their average stay is Just 3.1
days, while Florida visitors stay
an average of 12.5 days. Our visi-
tors patronize a number of attrac-
tions anrd-businesses, spreading
dconomic-benefit throughout the
state. Gambling visitors go to ca-
sinos, lose their money relatively
quickly, and go home. The only
winners are the casino owners.
While the gambling.industry
has paid for studies which sug-
gest that new jobs and tax reve-
nues would be created by casinos
independent studies on what has
actually happened in other states
prove that casinos "cannibalize"
existing jobs and businesses.
Further, independent studies
prove that casinos cost more In
government spending than they
produce in tax revenue. That's
because of the enormous public
costs associated with casino gam-
bling -- everything from regula-


tion and law enforcement to
counseling and treatment for
compulsive gamblers.
There are a number of rea-
sons why casinos are a bad bet
for Florida.
First, though Amendment 8
Is called "Limited Casinos," it
would actually make Florida sec-
ond only to Nevada in the amount
of casino gambling authorized.
Second, casinos bring crime.
Gambling interests have staged
countless" commercials and are
spending millions of dollars to
cloud this truth that just about
everyone intuitively knows.
Florida's law enforcement
community -- Florida Sheriffs,
Florida Police Chiefs, and the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement -- are all opposed to
casino gambling in Florida. That's
because the track record of casi-
no gambling in other states clear-
ly demonstrates that casinos
cause more street crime and
more violent crime and attract
more organized crime. Florida
has a crime problem today. Casi-


no gambling would just make it
worse.
Third, Amendment 8 would
force casinos into communities
throughout Florida,, even if local
voters don't want them. If Amend-
ment 8 passes, every dog track,
horse track and jai alai fronton
would become a full blown casi-
no. The legislature would have to
site an additional 17 casinos, for
a total of at least 50 casinos
throughout Florida. Even if local
voters reject the amendment but
it passes statewide, your commu-
nity would end up with casinos.
Fourth, Amendment 8 is
carefully designed to benefit the
small special interest group that
is bankrolling the campaign. In
addition to the dog tracks, horse
tracks and jai alai frontons which
would be guaranteed a casino li-
cense, Amendment 8 actually
mandates that one of the casinos
be built on a piece of privately-
owned land on Miami beach. The"
developer and casino operator
who plan to build this casino
have provided $3.5 million to the
Amendment 8 campaign. Our


constitution should not be re-
written to put money in the pock-
ets of anyone -- especially out-of-
state and foreign interests.
Fifth, taxpayers would have
to foot the bill for the crime and
social problems that casinos
bring. Independent studies con-
clude that for every dollar of tax
revenue generated in a casino,
there is at least $1.50 in social
costs caused by casinos.
Finally, there is an incalcula-
ble human cost caused by casino
gambling. If casinos are legalized
in Florida, there are lives that will
be destroyed as a result. Compul-
sive gambling causes financial
ruin, destroys marriages, divides
families, and leaves children in
despair.
My dictionary defines the
word "gamble" as follows: "to risk
something of value on an uncer-
tain event." Casino interests are
asking us to take an enormous
gamble with the future of our
state. Our best bet is to vote NO
on Amendment 8.


Letters to the Editors:

Writer on Mexico Beach Controversy


Dear Editor,
I spend a lot of time in Pana-
ma City and Port St. Joe. In talk-
ing with the people, it appears
that the government of Mexico
Beach has become the joke of the
area. I have heard that even some
of the other mayors are laughing
*about us.
One joke is that the Mayor of
Mexico Beach does not know that
three council votes equal more
than two council votes, and that
someone has asked, the attorney
general to send an investigator
down here to teach him how to
count.
Another joke concerns some
city employees signing a recall pe-
tition against one of their bosses,
a council member, with the city
administrator and police chief be-
ing at the top of the laughing list.
(It could only happen at Mexico
Beach)
The list goes on. It is not my
purpose to confirm or deny 'the
jokes or to condemn or defend
the Mexico Beach public officials
and employees who are the target
of the jokes. These officials and
employees have made their bed
and have drawn a line in the
sand. It appears that on one side
of the line there is the Mexico
Beach City Hall-Chamber of Com-
merce, and liberals power struc-
ture and on the other side is the
conservative homeowners and re-
tired community who want the
least possible government and
the .lowest possible taxes. The re-
tired community has the majority
vote and will win if truth prevails.
Therein lies the problem. In any
case, if the voters do not search
out what is true and accept the
lies and false allegations that are
being fed to them, and don't vote,
they will deserve what they are
going to get---more lies, more tax-
es, and more government con-
trols. The "Shootout at OK Corral"


will occur ri November 8, 1994.
Let truth prevail.


Joe Fontaine,
Mexico Beach


Sad Day for Mexico Beacih
"Sad, Day f "


On Saturday, Mayoral Candi-
date Mullins stopped on 7th
Street and approached a house..
He had been informed a Captain
Gaylor lived there. Thinking Mr.
Gaylor was retired military' like
himself, he wanted to chat with a
'comrade-in-arms". Mr. Mullins
had no idea the title "Captain"
meant his position on his fishing
boat. .
Before reaching the door, he


was detained by Deputy Echler
and Policeman Nelson Hall. Mrs.
Gaylor signed a trespass com-
plaint and a written warning was
issued to Mr. Mullins.
What has happened to re-
spect and love for 'our fellow
man? Has a candidate lost his
freedom to campaign in Mexico
Beach? Indeed, tis a sad day for
all of us.

Over 1,000 people witnessed the "Judgement House" this week
at the First Baptist Church. A varied cast from several churches in
the community collaborated to present the drama depicting the
lives of three teenagers: a non-Christian, a Christian and a church
attending youth who hadn't accepted Christ. It was an emotional
gamut from the time the youths were involved in a fatal, alcohol-
related car crash, through their scenes in the judgementn seat be-
fore God, and being sent either to hell or heaven. In the photo be-
low, paramedics treat the patients at the accident scene and the
lower photo shows parents of one of the teenagers as they decide
to take life support away. In the photo above, the Christian teenag-
er is greeted in heaven by the Lord.

Hopes ofPlayoff


The Wewahitchka Gators saw
their playoff hopes diminish Fri-
day night when Liberty County
broke a 15-15 tie scoring a fourth
quarter touchdown to take a 22-'
1.5 win.
A glimmer of hope still, re-
mains for the Gators to have a
playoff opportunity, but will re-
quire the cooperation of district
rivals Sneads and Apalachicola.
Apalachicola would have to defeat
Sneads this weekend and the Ga-
tors in turn would have to defeat
Apalachicola in their season fl-
nale November 1 I In Wewahitch-
ka. If this were to happen Wewa-
hitchka, Sneads and Apalachicola
would finish the regular season
With a tie ln district competition
and have to meet in a post season
tie-breaker to decide on a district
runner-up. ..
Wewa's David Hysmith's sev-
en yard touchdown run in the
first quarter put the Gators out
front early in Friday night's ac-,
tion, but the conversion attempt
failed. Liberty County went up by
one point in the second quarter
7-6, but Trahum McLemore's 13
yard touchdown reception from
S quarterback Will Sumner gave
the Gators a 12-7 lead at half
time.
SThe see-saw battle continued
in the second half with Wewa.
hitchka increasing its lead 15-7,
behind the leg of David Hysmith
who kicked a 25 yard field goal to
give the Gators a little breathing
room.
`'The Bulldogs came right
back, pulling to within two points
on a 57 yard touchdown pass.
What may have been the play of
the game occurred as Bristol
completed a 17-yard pass for the
two-point conversion, tying 'the
game at 15 all in the third quar-
ter. A personal foul penalty had
moved the ball back to the 17
yard line.


Bristol doused the Gators
'hopes, of winning the district
championship, scoring on a one
yard plunge in the fourth quarter
to break the tie, with the final
score 22-15.
Penalties proved to be thi
Achilles' heel for the Gators, eight
for 75 yards: several of which
kept drives alive for the Bulldogs.

A victory over the Tigers of
Jefflrson County this Friday
night would put the Sharks back
in the Class AAA playoffs for the
first time in two years.
Friday night's 36-0 shellack-
ing of the Havana Gladiators,
evened St. Joe's and Jefferson
County's district record with one
loss each in district play. Both
teams district loss came at the
hands of North Florida Christian'
School. A Sharks' win this Friday.

ish in district play and- they
would face the first place team
from District One in the first
round of AAA play-offs. s
Head coach Fred Priest said
he has been telling his players, "If
we win, we're in." Priest said that
community support had been an
important factor in the achieve-
mIents of this year's young Shark;
squad and was looking forward to
being back in the friendly con-
fines of Shark stadium for the
first imne in a nonth.
The Shark defense.has begun
to gel in recent games, shutting
out its opponents for the second
consecutive week and limiting
Havana to 59 total yards of of-
fense in Friday's action.
Points were hard to come by
in the early going against the
Gladiators with Barry Adklson's
21-yard field goal for three points
being all the security the Sharks
could carry to the locker room at.
half time.

training in self-expression. For
the state winners, -there is also
the broadening experience of a
five-day tour of Washington, D.

lasting friendships with the other

for the Week" are possessions

sponsibility for what they do with
that money. Having, them buy
their own personal effects with
"their money" can provide tre-
mendous learning experiences.

Third Grade ..
As I walked in Mrs. Elkins'
classroom, I noticed it was dark,
so I thought the class had gone to
the library. But, as I turned I saw
why it was dark! There on the ta-
ble sat a huge pumpkin that had
been turned into a jack-o-lantern!
One of the most exciting carvlns' I
have ever seen!
Kindergarten
Kindergarten teacher. Kathy
Arnold walked in my office the
other day and saw this new batch
of hula hoops and almost before
she could say May I." I said.
'Yes, feel free to use them!' And
with that statement a group of
known hula hoopers were also re-
cruited to show those kinders
how to do it! So. on Wednesday,
the K-class went to the court out-
side where they watched the ex-
perts (and I mean that) hula
hoop. Thanks to Margaret Rober-
son, Carolyn Peak. Kathy Thom-
as. and Joyce Sweazy for the
great demonstration of hula
hoopingl The kids enjoyed hula
hooping after that and we found
that several of them did really
well with a hula hoop.
School Nurse
The Health Services school
Nurse, "Miss Gail" Blackmon has
been busy presenting programs.
She was in Mrs. Elkins' third
grade classroom teaching them
how to perform the Heimlich ma-
neuver for choking.
On Thursday, she was in the
Kindergarten class showing a vid-
eo called "Bicycle Safety Cajnp."
Thanks "Miss Gail."

As I walked into Cathy Col-
bert's fifth grade Thursday, I went
back into time to America when
the Indians were the original pop-
ulation of our great land.

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper

'We recommend Reagan," Uncle Clem Rednek said last week when I
visited him at Flat Creek in Gadsden County to check on who's who on
the upcoming elections.
"But he's not even on the ticket, you old scumbug," I said.
"Nomatter, nomatter,. nohowl Just say: Liberal Democrats vs. for-
mer President Ronald Reagan. Our choice. is Reagan. Everybody'l know
exactly what you mean. They'll vote'em all out everywhere," insisted
Clem.
Realizing this wouldn't do, I changed the subject sort of..
'Why don't you and me and Aunt Minnie just pick the best for Flori-
da," I said.,
'You mean recommend someone for each of those highfalutin' state-
wide offices? Sounds like a fittin' idea to me," said Aunt Minnie Ten-
shoe, home from St Petersburg for homecoming at Greensboro High
School where she was once the queen. "Let's get at it," she said, taking
off her apron and pulling up a chair on the front porch.
Thus was born the 1994 Piney Needle Recommendations for the
Sunnysideup Florida elections next week. Here they be:
BUSH FOR GOV: Although two out of three of us had voted for old
cracker Walkin' Lawton. Chiles four years ago, the whole piney needle
committee this time was for young Jeb Bush, 41-year-old son of George
and Barbara Bush, lately of the White House, Washington, D. C.
'We should've known he was Just one of those liberal Democrats.
God bless Ronnie Reagaril," said Clem. Aunt Minnie added: "Jeb looks
like a warm-hearted young man who just might do right. He's certainly
a part of the future, not the old worn-out past" I
We agreed Bush's vision of less and more efficient government with
more freedom and local control for people, especially in tax matters,
was better than Chiles' apparently genuine effort to go that route, which
failed because he has too many ties to liberal Democratic policies and
politicians, including President Bill Clinton.
CRAWFORD: Agriculture Commissioner Bob Crawford deserves to
retain his post over challenger Jim Smith, former Secretary of State'
who withdrew from the governor's race and then was nominated by the
GOP for' the farm czar post when one of their little-known handpicked
candidates withdrew. Both men are well qualified for the job. The Piney
Needle committee wasn't too impressed with either, because they're a
couple of millionaire oldline politicians who are using taxpayer money
undei this new so-called campaign reform law. In the final call. Smith
who changed from a' Democrat to a Republican awhile back, has
switched Just once too often.;
BUTTERWORTH: Democrat Bob Butterworth, 52, deserves to be
re-elected to the attorney general's post he has held for three terms be-
cause of his experience, natural disposition and past accomplishments.
He has not hesitated to go after crooks in the state no matter who. He
has won some $200-million in rebates, reductions, and settlements.
working through his office and other agencies and backed the formation
of the state's new juvenile justice department. Why turn a good man
out? His opponent is Republican Henry G. Ferro, 36, a Miami attorney
and former circuit Judge. -
; WHAT A GAL: Rep. Sandy Mortham, Republican leader in the Florit-
da' House, is a natural for the Secretary of State Job being vacated by
Jim Smith. She opposes the public campaign financing law that this
year is showing it is what opponents said It was welfare for politicians,
particularly Incumbents who are mostly millionaires. She'd also limit
"soft money" contributions the political parties funnel to candidate cam-
paigns. The Democrats cleared recently by an ineffective State Elec-
tions Commission appointed by Gov. Chiles are especially bdd about
using such monies, skirting illegality this year the vague and loose way
campaign expenditures are reported. She'd make a welcome addition to
the powerful Florida Cabinet. Democratic Rep. Ron Saunders is an ex-
perienced legislator and has a good understanding of government He
also had the courage to be the only Democrat in a statewide race to
show up at President Clinton's luncheon in Tallahassee.'
But Sandy Mortham Is the better candidate by far.
FRANK BROGAN: Both Republican challenger Frank Brogan and
incumbent Education Commissioner Doug Jamerson are experienced
and effective educators. Brogan Is an award winning school superinten-
dent from Martin County. Jamerson, a former teacher, counselor and
experienced legislator in school affairs. The difference is that Jamerson,
does not have the vision for changes needed in the failing public school
system. in fact, he defends such things as overall low and falling Flori-
da scores on national tests, because there is some slightimprovement
in scores for minorities and inner-city school students. Brogan may not
have that vision and courage to make radical changes in the school sys-
tem either, but he has indicated he would at least give it a try.
We're talking of course, about vouchers that would allow students
to take their tax money to the school of their choice, whether it be pub-
lic, private or religious. Or charter schools which are public schools
contracted out by government to private schools first then, if it works,
expand the idea. Jamerson adamantly opposes them, saying they would
destroy the school system..
IT'S NELSON: Democrat Bill Nelson, a former Congressman and
unsuccessful candidate for Florida governor, is one of those tainted na-
tional Democrats along with Chiles and Lt. Gov. Buddy McKay. But Nel-
son, who is running for Insurance Commissioner, has put forth a con-
sumer oriented plan that shows he has given the subject considerable
thought. Me. Clem and Minnie are giving him the benefit of the doubt
and are. picking him over Republican Rep. Tim Ireland who doesn't
seem quite as well prepared.
BOB MILLIGAN, a retired Marine Corps general who commanded
the Fleet Marine Force with 92.000 troops in the Persian Gulf War in
1991, is our choice for state comptroller. He appears to have all the
qualifications needed to handle Florida's finances. He will, if elected, re-
place Democrat Gerald Lewis who has had. the post for the past 20
years and has rendered good service to the: people. But it's time for a
change in this low-profile post which usually is filled by a popularity
contest...
