Commission Talks 'Lighting
To Concentrate On Illuminating Highways In City
This Christmas Season; Equipment Bought; Bid
The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission sifted through a light
agenda Tuesday night. Tamara
Laine, Chamber of Commerce di-
rector. approached the board on
behalf of the Downtown Mer-
chants' Association requesting
Col. Pete Fox
that this year's Christmas decora-
lions focus a little more on High-
way 98. Laine explained that the
merchants felt that the decora-
tions would be seen by more pas-
sers through the city on Highway
98, and that more decorations
were needed in that area,
Mayor Pate agreed with Laine
but explained that it was proba-
bly a little late to get any new
decorations in time to get up be-
fore the holiday season. Through
discussion the Commission ex-
pressed a desire to shiRt some of
the decorations around, dividing
them up throughout the down-
town area and Highway 98. Frank
Healey, Public Works Superinten-
dent, pointed out that providing
electrical power could be a prob-
lem on Highway 98. Mayor Pate
followed up by asking Healey to
look into the situation and see
what his crews might do the
spread out some of the displays.
WATER METER READING
Public Works Superintendent
Healey was granted approval to
advertise for bids seeking two
electronic meter reading instru-
ments. According to Healey, the
"new-fangled" computer driven
type machines should not only
cut the time required tp read the
city's meters, but also Improve on
accuracy, reducing the number of
callbacks to reread meters. The
route to be followed in reading
the meters, as well as a complete
water use history of each custom-
er, would be. stored in the units.
OPEN TRACTOR BIDS
Sealed bids were opened by
the Commission seeking to pur-
chase -a new tractor -and, at-tach-
ments for the city. Three of the
bidders were within just a few
dollars of each other, with Swear-
ingen-Lord, Inc. of Marianna, be-
ing the apparent low bidder at
$8,100.00. The Board accepted
the low bid pending review by Su-

Raffield Says Net Ban Will Change Scenery Around Here
Raffield Fisheries, long time seafood producing
company here in Port St. Joe and an employer of
nearly 200 people will take a "look and see" attitude
toward the devastating net ban vote of last week and
the effect it will have upon their operation here in
Port St. Joe.
Gene Raffield, president of the firm, had said
that they may have to move their sizable operation to
Louisiana to .maintain their business activities
should the net ban in Florida be approved. It was ap-
proved by a large statewide majority vote last Tues-
day, dashing, hopes and wishes of many fishermen
that it would be voted down. The ban forbids any
nets larger than 500 square- feet being used within
three miles of Florida's coast and bans gill nets for a
distance of five miles from shores.
CHANGE OUR WAYS
Raffield told, The Star "This will change the way
we and other fishermen on Florida's coastline oper-
ate." He said, "It puts us out of the mullet business.
There will, be no more Florida coastal mullet al-
though there is still plenty of fish if we could just
Raffield painted a dim future for the fisheries'
operation here. "We'll just have to play it by ear be-
tween now and June 30, the deadline for using nets
to ply our trade." He said the local fisheries will be.
forced at least to curtail their large operation here'
with a major worker reduction. "We may have to
handle some imported product rather than depend
on local sources as we have done in the past. It's go-
inrg to mean a different style of work for us. It's
something we had not planned on and it will mean a
different type of operation for Raffield Fisheries in
the future. We will no longer be able to rely on our
major products of mullet and bait fishes as a source
ELIMINATES BAY SHRIMP
'This new law will also eliminate the source of
our succulent white bay shrimp," according to Raf-
field. "It will mean about 60 percent of the total
shrimp supply will be eliminated and I look for the
price to go up on available shrimp by an equal
amount. The only shrimp available through the mar-
kets will be the offshore pink shrimp which doesn't
have the taste our bay shrimp does. We are in a little
better position than most fishermen since we do
-have a large offshore production boat which we may
utilize in the future. This boat however, does not
take many people to operate so our employee base
will be cut considerably if we decide to remain in,
production in this matter," said Raffield.
Raffield said he didn't know where people were
going to get the mullet and shrimp which have be-
come so popular along this area over the years, un-
less they catch their own. All nets have been banned
over 500 sq. ft. in size. Raffield says this is a net
about the size of a shrimpers "try" net which he lets
down to see if there is shrimp in the area before he
goes after them with a full size net. "You can't pay
the bills of operating a shrimp boat with the produc-
tion of a 'try' net," Raffield said.
The local firm is reported to have several options
available, among which may still be a move to Loui-
slana. But the firm definitely faces a future of a revo-
lution in their style of work, a restructuring in their
size'of operation and a drastic reduction of work
force In the future.
'You can't maintain an operation such as ours
with the expenses, taxes, and labor involved with
our main source of income cut off," Raffield said.
"We're going to do whatever we feel like we can in the
future whatever that might be," Raffield concluded.
Gene Raffleld said that Florida fisherman are
looking at the possibility of a challenge as to the con-
stitutionality of the net ban question.
"There are some questions as to the Florida Su-
preme Court's handling of the petition requests in
the first place," Ramield said. "For instance, fisher-'
men were denied any opportunity for input on the
matter when It came before the high court. That may
be a point of contention on our part. If we feel like
we have a chance to over turn the vote, we will prob-
ably challenge it, but if not, we probably won't issue
any objections," Raffield said.

TWO FAMILIAR FACES were returned to the County Com-
mission and a new one on the Gulf County School Board greet-
ed us Wednesday morning following election Tuesday. There was
centehtion over one position and two bitter enemies fighting over
a second, though one of them waited too long to qualify and had
to settle for write in candidacy which didn't go over too well.
With only 29 votes to count when the voting was over, you might
even say it wasn't worth the time it took to run.
The big winners, locally, are bitter enemies on the Board and
both are pretty strong-willed individuals. Both could be dynamic
individuals for Gulf County if the feud could just be put on hold
for the duration. To be candid there is more feud coming from
one side than there is the other. The same observation still ap-
OUR NATION NOW has a Republican majority in' the House
and Senate for the first time since 1952. That's a long time ago.
That's the year we first assumed leadership of The Star. What
does this mean for our nation? Not a darn thing if those guys
happen to be more "Republican" than "American". If they're not,
it just means four more years of putting up road-blocks in the
way of any good idea the minority might have: and minorities do
have good ideas which are best for everyone once in a while.
The health program wasn't one of them. the manner in
which it was constructed. The minority was successful in short
stopping this one, but at what cost? Will the opponents go along
with a more sensible program, or will they sabotage any idea the
present majority comes up with simply because it is their propo-
sal? Will we continue to have a political tug-of-war or will we see
cooperation for the good of the nation?
PRESIDENT CLINTON SAID the morning after the election,
"I have heard them loud and clear ..." If it took a catastrophic
defeat of his buddies, at the polls to get the President's atten-
Uion, with all his "listening" stations available at his disposal,
we're not real sure if he truly "heard" them or not. Still, one gets

GULF COAST COMMUNITY College is welcome to Port St.
Joe. Their announcement that their officials will actively pursue
state approval for a branch campus here in Port St. Joe is wel-
come news. For years this has been a proposal which has been
discussed pro and con with the location of the branch campus a
subject for supposition.
Of course a branch campus will need more than a hand-full
of students to populate its facilities. Currently, it is more cost ef-
fective for the students to drive to and from the Panama City
campus. This situation is beginning to change however. The col-
lege is staying abreast of this need for change and recognizes the
need for additional classrooms in a more accessible location for
a larg corps of their, potential students.
THE SCHOOL IS ALSO running out of space, to expand its
Panama City campus. This may seem like poor planning on the
part of the college's founders, but we're not so sure of that.
When Gulf Coast was founded, it followed the theme of a col-
lege being established on the neighborhood concept. Gulf Coast
is too large now to truly be termed a neighborhood college. It
only makes sense, then, to establish a new campus for the pur-
pose of serving still another neighborhood. A college in which a
student would feel at home and not overwhelmed by the sheer
numbers of people in attendance.
GULF COAST HAS ALWAYS been a neighborhood college,
run by people we knew. They have always maintained a stan-
dard of excellence which would stand up alongside the big boys.
They have an excellent track record and credentials of which
their students need not feel inferior for having matriculated
through their program.
Gulf Coast is no "Harvard", it has no national championship
football team or other attributes to make it nationally famous,
- although a fair number of basketball and baseball players have
made their mark over the years.
What the college does well is prepare its students well to
meet the challenges placed before them by the world, and they

Terry attracted the interest
and4.empathy of the entire com-
mudlity 'during his long battle
with hepatitis B. Thought to have
been contracted while he was a
youth, the disease attacked his
body during the past several
years, big time the last few years
with Terry fighting' back tena-
ciously all the time. .
He too was in his early 40's
at the time of his untimely death.
TERRY WAS A classmate to

Church. His brothers have fam-

Like so many others here, he
was a first-class Monday morning
quarterback of the FSU Semi-

pected Bobby Bowden to hire him
as an assistant at just any time.
I guess we will remember Ter-
ry best here at The Star for the
face-lift he- gave our building
about four years ago.
Terry would tease Willie on
his periodic visits here with, "Why
don't you do something with that
The' inevitable answer would
be, "We want to, but we don't
know what to. do rthith it."
Finally one day Terry
bounced in and announced, "'I
have a few free days. I'm going to
dress up your front for you."
"Go to it!" we said. "What are.
you going to do to it?" we asked.
"Just watch" he said. And
that's .how. The Star building be-
came renovated and Terry operat-

was how he lived his life and now
we can just stand back and look
at what he and Rusty did during
their short lives,

The City of Port St. Joe
has purchased 540 tons of
milled asphalt from Baxter's
Asphalt which has been resur-
facing Highway 98 within the
city limits. The material,
shown at left, Is being stock-
piled at the City's warehouse
property on 10th Street.
The milled asphalt was re-
moved from the existing sur-
face of the roadway before the
new asphalt was laid. The City
had uUlized some of the mate-
rial in repairing pot holes and
found the substance provided
much more satisfactory re-
sults than matelals which
were being currently used.
The City has plans to use it
for repair work on the town's
streets and alleyways.
'MY DEAR MS. HOFFMAN"
Thank you for your letter (letter to the editor, The Tires, Thurs-
day, 3 November, 1994) in reply to my "biting" reply to your first let-
ter (to the editor).
Leave it up to Wendell to jump in before checking the water; to
open his mouth before getting his brain working, or to just make a
complete fool of-himself. I do it. all the time, Ms. Hoffman, so my re-
ply to your first letter was no exception.
"He's'just impulsive," my father and friends once said. Now they
say, "Wendell is just plain crazy!" .
Had I done my homework before writing my impulsive reply to
your first letter, I would have never written my reply. I apologize. It
is not you who should be sorry, but me.
You see, I pictured you, B. L. Hoffman, as.a burly, ruffian bent
on destroying me and discrediting my little'article. I also haive a per-
secution complex, or so I was told at my last psychoanalysis ses-
sion. (My psychoanalysis session was last Thursday night, two
weeks ago, and was performed by three of my close friends who had
downed several drinks and tolc me exactlyy what they thought of
m e.) .. .- . ,
So you see, Ms. Hoffman, it is I who should apologize and not
you. It's just my Southern, rural upbringing and lack of intelligence
that made me do it.
I'm sorry, and I won't do it again. Please forgive me. And thank
you for saying you will continue to read my article eadh week. I J.s
hope the editor will continue to print my article after I made such'A
You might be Interested to know a few things that have hap- g
opened since we 'last :communicated. Tragedy has struck our dog
family and we are devastated!
About a week after I wrote my foolish article, my son's dog. Ru-
fus, who was about 6 months old, committed suicide. We are not
sure what happened, but that Saturday night he jumped from my
son's truck while he was driving to a hunting lodge to train Rufus
to hunt. The tragedy happened on C-30. about two miles from Port
SL Joe. And, although we are not sure he died from the jump. we
have been unable to find him.
I just assume it was. suicide, that somehow he knew he had
been mistreated, having to stay in that dog pen, and decided to end
it all. It was my article, I think, that compelled him to jump. Howev-
er, he may have seen a hog In the bush and jumped to chase him.
We will never know, but Rufus is gone
We searched for several days. combing the road and woods, but.
to no avail.
Several days before the tragic accident my dog. Duke, left the
confines of our yard and has never returned. He had left on previ-
ous occasions but always returned. This time he did not return.
Let me say this about Duke: I don't believe he's dead. I think he
has run off and gotten married. Girl dogs will cause boy dogs to do'
strange things. Duke is a "survivor" and I know he's alive and well,
somewhere in Gulf County.
Shortly after Rufus disappeared we moved from our home to es-
tablish a better life somewhere else. We now reside at St. Joe Beach
and are trying to deal with our loss as best we can.
So you see, Ms. Hoffman, what goes around, comes around.
Thank you again for your beautiful letter and I wish you God's
speei and a happyand enjoyable life withyopur dog..... ..
Sincerely, Wendell Campbell

Loquats may be grown In
three 'ways: froni seeds, rooted"

They are easy to grow from seeds,
but seed grown trees won't pro-
duce superior fruit varieties, and
may take years to bear at all. The
best fruit comes from loquats
that are vegetatively propagated.
Two ways this is done in Florida
are shield budding and grafting.
Loquats do best in subtropi-
cal climates, but mature trees
can withstand temperatures as
low as ten degrees fahrenheit
without freeze damage. However,
the blooms are easily killed by
frosts. Because of this, loquat
trees growing in the colder, north-
ern areas of our state usually do
not produce much fruit unless
they're protected from the cold.
Loquats can be grown in any
type Florida soil, as long as It's
well drained and free of salt. Lo-
quats need a good water supply
to produce good quality fruit.
But, this must be carefully moni-
tored. Never flood a loquat with
water. This will kill a tree.
Loquats need some fertilizer
for best fruit production. When
the soil is shallow, it's a good idea
to make three or four applications

The Sharks put the first
points up on the board taking the
opening kick-off and driving 60

proved he was going to be a force
to contend with, touching the ball

drive. Jenkins grabbed a 17-yard
pass from quarterback Ryan
Yeager on the Sharks' first play
from scrimmage. He followed a
few plays later, reeling off 17
yards on a draw play up the mid-
dle. and then capped it with a 13

I Had A Right
To Be There
This letter 1 in response to
Ms. Blount's letter in the Novem-
ber 3rd 1994 issue of "The Star".
Her letter seemed to contain
alot of"fluff" and no 'stufT.'.(short
First. Mrs. Gaylor. advised
me that somebody in a two-tone
grey van had been parking in the
street in front of her house. She
said that she could not see who
was in the vehicle, and the per-
son was not exiting the vehicle.
The van was only doing this when
her husband was gone. She stat-
ed that this occurred 2-3 times
over the past couple of days. I ad-
vised her that the area would be
extra-patrolled, and to call the
police when it happened again.
AtI about 2 p.m.. the dis-
patcher advised Mexico Beach Po-
lice Officer Nelson Hall that there
was a Trespasser/Unwanted indi-
vidual at Mrs. Caylor's house. I
was just around the comer, so I
responded also, and arrived be-
fore Hall. Upon arrival, I observed
an older whitj male standing on
the top step of her balcony. As I
climbed the steps. I heard Mrs.
Gaylor state "I don't want you
here. please leave." The man said
"I only want to give you this
paper. Please read it." She then
said "No. leave." He then said
"Just look'at it.: She said "No." I
then told the mian to leave, be-
cause she had told him three
times in my presence to leave. He
said that all he wanted to do was
give her the paper. She told him
that he was not welcome on her
property. I then told him to leave
the property, or go to jail for Tres-
pass after Warning. He then
started'down the stairs.
I asked her 'if she wanted a
written Trespass Warning issued.
and she said "yes." At this time,
Officer Hall arrived, and was exit-
ing his patrol car. I advised Hall
that she wanted a Trespass
Warning issued. The man, who
was then identified as Tollie Mul-
lins. was advised that if he came
back on the property, he would
be arrested for Trespassing. He
was also advised that if he contin-
x ued to park in front of her house.
he could possibly be charged with
stalking, harassment, and/or loi-
tering and prowling. He stated
that he understood and that he

am responsible for the upkeep on

said, I did nothing wrong.

pied summer home near us in
Beacon Hill Uppn our investiga-
tion we came upon two clean cut
young boys on the premise. One
wore a while shirt and the other a
'red/maroon shirt. One boy. was
exiting a small outer apartment.
The other boy was at the window
of the large house preparing to
break the window: When they
saw us they bolted. One ran

down a fence row; the other ran
down First Avenue -and Second
Street. When the sheriff deputy
arrived, we could not believe the
devastation these Vwo boys had
done to. the area. I have, not slept
well for two nights thinking about
this sick act that two boys in our
neighborhood have done. If they
get away with this.what will they
become in a few years. These two
boys are in need of help. Will you
or I be their next victims? What is
wrong in our society?

is. It is when a candidate's run-
ning for office like 'Mr. Mullins
and others say they don't know a
businessman and his family who
has lived and worked in Mexico
Beach for over 12 years. When
the truth of a situation is
changed to meet your political

My hat'is off to the old he-coon from Lakeland today who I think said
somewhere in the millions of words that was his campaign that he was a
remnant of cracker history or something. This cracker often misunder-
stands that cracker, but it fits.
I just hope the he-coon remnant and most of the big dally newspa-
pers of Florida who helped mightily to give him four more years realize
there has been a revolution in Florida and the country. Otherwise, like
Sen. Ted Kennedy and President; Bill Clinton, they're going to be lonely
out there flailing away for liberal causes and the middle class voters are
going to have to do this all over again.
Make no mistake about it. There was a revolution. The Florida Sen-
ate is no longer homespun cracker. It's modern Republican outright, 21
to 19. And the Florida House is so closely split 63 Democrats to 57 Re-
publicans that conservative Democrats and Republicans have control.
According to my capitol sources, the deal has already been struck to
allow St. Petersburg Democrat Peter Wallace to become speaker at reor-
ganization Nov. 22 In exchange for a better split with Republicans of
committee appointments. There could easily be a coalition. But why
bother? Wallace. incidentally, paid maverick Democrat Rep. Randy Mack-
ev, of Lake City. a visit last week. I bet Mackey, who ran against Wallace
for speaker, got some help on his school prayer bill that he will re-
"I guess what we will do is se"e how well the Republicans do with the
responsibility of leadership," said outgoing Senate President Pat Thomas
of Quincy, who lost his dream in' the election of having a full two-terms
as president. He split it with Republican Sen. Ander Crenshaw when the
Senate was 20-20 in membership'.
Surprisingly, that split presidency seemed to have worked. Both sen-
ators got things done for Florida. Most voters are hoping he-coon Chiles
is willing to meet the upcoming conservative legislature half way to -pre-
vent four years of gridlock.
There is room for compromise on such things as welfare reform,
more prisons and boot camps, even school prayer and health insurance,
subsidies for the poor. There is no real reason except political pride and
vanity why bi-partisan action can't be taken on those subjects. -
The nitty-gritty one of course is going to be taxes, Politicians (Chiles
included) are going to have, to realize tax money doesn't grow on trees
and isn't their God-given right to have in abundance. No more millionaire
politicians wallowing around like hogs in public campaign funds. Even
super-liberal Ted Kennedy had td sell his Virginia home to pay for his re-
election campaign. '
Chiles wants to take what he calls tax reform directly to the people
through the constitutional amendment process which may become easier
now that voters have lifted the multiple subject ban that the supreme
court has used often to keep amendments off the ballot.
Chiles wants to tax many now exempt services to broaden the tax
base while at the same time reducing school property taxes. Sounds nice
huh? It isn't. It's just another tax grab for more and bigger, not less gov-
ernment. If he can keep it just between he and the people of Florida,
there may not be gridlock in the'legislature. Such a proposal is going to
be dead in the water in both the House and Senate.
Last week's election had reminders,of the Graham-Cracker ticket
that gave now U. S. Sen. Bob Graham his first term as governor of Flori-
da. Graham, a liberal Democratic state senator, from Miami, chose North
Florida's Rep. Wayne Mixson, a Marianna democrat and a real conserva-
tive cracker, as his running mate for that race. They won handily.
This time Graham campaigned hard in the closing week before the
election with Lakeland cracker dhiles and was, probably the main reason
the old he-coon got his bare 75.600 vote majority that, he is going to call
a, mandate for four more years of foolishness.
An interesting statistic of the race was that Chiles lost to Bush in
North Florida, the Panhandle, Central Florida, and West Florida which
make up what most folk figure is cracker country. e won primarily on
the Southeast Florida Gold Coast, including votie-rch Broward, Palm
Beach, and Dade counties.
Another interesting statistic: is that the ban against net fishing in
coastal Florida waters was passed by a 72 to 28.percent margin, mostly
in Central and South Florida. Itlwas defeated in only 22 of 67 counties,
all located in North Florida, :

Do we have another Florida or what?
A sidelight to that vote was that liberal and highly Democratic Leon
County was the only one of 21 Panhandle counties between the Suwan-
nee River and Choctawhatchee Bay to vote for the ban.
Many folk in this section of our other Florida are bitter about it.
"Seems to me the state should be divided in two. If they don't want
nets in Dade County that's the way it should be. But they shouldn't take
away our jobs." said Apalachicola fisherman Lynn McClain.
THE MONEY: Gov. Lawton Chiles got the biggest amount $2.5 mil-
.lion of the $12.7 million the state doled out to 17 politicians who quali-
fied under the public campaign finance law that he sponsored and the
Florida Supreme Court approved this year.
The Infusion of state money helped Chiles defeat Jeb Bush who
called the public money "welfare for politicians." Bush and Republican
winner of the Secretary of State's race. Sandra Mortham, were the only
* statewide candidates who refused the public money.
Candidates for governor and six Cabinet posts raised more than
$34.5 million. They spent more than $30.3 million on their campaigns
through Nov. 3. according to the state elections office. Republican Jim
Smith received $1.1 million for his races for governor and agriculture
commissioner. After Chiles and Srnilth, the top recipients of public money
were In the governor's race: former Sen. Ander Crenshaw, $1 million;
outgoing Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher, $642,167; and Talla-
hassee trial lawyer Ken Conner, $634,684.
AMENDMENTS: The only proposed constitutional amendment voted
down last week would have allowed widespread casino gambling in Flori-
da. It had the most financing at $16.7 million but less support than any
of the four proposals that passed, losing overwhelmingly with only 38
percent of the vote.
Easily passing was an amendment to limit fishing nets in coastal wa-
ters by a 72 to 28 percent margin. Other citizen initiatives approved by
voters would move the beginning of the regular session of the Florida
Legislature from February to March, limit the annual growth. in state
spending to average personal income growth, and lift the requirement on
proposed amendments to cover only one subject.
THAT WORD AGAIN: Administrators at Florida A & M University
have suspended white assistant professor Gerald Gee for Iwo weeks with-
out pay because he used the "n----- word in a public relations class last
year in an effort to challenge students to stop complaining and to do bet-
Gee received a certified letter from FAMU President Frederick Hum-
phries that he will be restricted from teaching- classes from Nov. 21
through Dec. 2. Humphries had earlier decided that. Gee was 'to -lose his
job, but that was overturned by the Florida Board of Regents. The case
has received national publicity.
