The City of Port St. Joe is ini-
tiating a new program of garbage
recycling and separation intended
to control arid even possibly re-
duce disposal costs in the future.
Currently the City requires
its customers to separate their
garbage Into two categories, recy-
clables and other garbage. Under
the new program three bags will
be required to dispose of house-
hold garbage. The bags will be
provided by the city free of charge.
and can be picked up at the city
warehouse, located at 1002 Tenth
Street, between 7:30 a.m. and
4:00 p.m., Monday through Fri-:
The bags will be color coded,
signifying which type of garbage'
goes in the appropriate bag.-
Green bags Table scraps
(vegetables, fruit, meat, fish,
chicken, bones, or the like).. :
Blue bags .Recyclables (as
you have done in the past: news-
papers, cardboard, aluminum
and tin cans, clear plastic milk or
soft drink bottles).
Orange bags All other gar-
bage (not yard trash).. ..
The bags should then be
placed in your green recycling
container and put out for collec-
tion just as it has been done in
According to Superintendent
of Public Works Frank Healey,
the program will start off being
voluntary to city customers. Hea-
ly pointed out that cost was the-
major reason for changing collec-
tion procedures. "With 100%
cooperation we could reduce the
city's incinerator volume by 85%,"
Healy said. This would, of course,
save the tax payers' money in sev-
eral ways-the cost of incinera-
tion, transportation, collection,
and separation of garbage.
Currently, because trash atid
table scraps are all mixed togeth-
er, both must be disposed of by
incineration. Once the two are
separated only the table :scraps
would require incineration and
the other trash could be utilized
as burnable fuel and disposed of
in landfills, either making money
through sale of fuel or saving
money with a less expensive dis-
Healy revealed the long-term
plans for the disposal of table
scraps were' to build a compost
unit to further eliminate incinera-
tor fees. This method is currently
In extensive use overseas accord-
ing to Healey. Many families cur-
rently have compost piles on their
property, and use the compost for
fertilizer and top soil.
The city's project would be
much more scientific than .a
backyard project though. The
compost pile would require con-
stant temperature monitoring,
aerating, and turning the pile to
kill harmful bacteria, while culti-
vating helpful bacteria in control-
ling the rotting process.
Over the course of the 30 day
compost process, the volume of
the table scraps would be re-
duced by 75%, yielding approxi-
mately 25 pounds of compost for
every 100 pounds of raw materi-
als put into the pile.
Healy said, the end product
would be a marketable material
that could either be sold, or used
by the city in its upkeep of parks
and right-of-ways throughout the
The project will probably take
about -three years to implement,
using the city's share of recycling
grants to build the facility, once
the permits have been approved.
Port St. Joe and Wewahitch-
ka are cooperating with each oth-
er in staging Christmas parades/
festivals this Christmas season.
Port St. Joe has scheduled its an-
nual parade and day of festivities
for Saturday, December 10 and
Wewahitchka has made plans for
December 17 with entries sched-
uled to participate in both events.
Port St. Joe's day of festivities
will feature such. activities, as
craft booths, games for kids, all
types of food booths, during the
day with a visit by Santa Claus to
highlight both celebrations.
The parade, in downtown
Port St. Joe will begin at 5:00
p.m. and end with a tree lighting
and carol singing activity.
Cash prizes of $100, $75.00
and $50.00 will be given to the
best three floats in the parade.
Organizations may enter floats by

Park Construction Project Is Nearing Completion
Work is winding down on the new City Park on the shores of
St. Joseph Bay this week with the installation of children's play
equipment on the site at the end of last week.
According to Bill Kennedy, engineer, of Preble-Rish engi-
neers, project designer, the entire installation will be complete
within two weeks, weather permitting. Kennedy says the project
lacks only the walking paths, project sign and some work on the
rest room facilities. Picnic tables and grills are scheduled to be
installed Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
Kennedy said, 'The park is already being, used, before we get
through with it." The facility is being built by Southeastern Me-
chanical, of Port St. Joe.

Let Us Be
For A Land of Plenty
As we observe Thanksgiving in our nation today, we all
should pause to express our thanks to God for all the
many blessings we have experienced as Americans during
the past year. In spite of the bumpy times, the unfortunate
experiences we have all been involved with, it has been a
There are some signs that our national economy is re-
covering after a bout with the doldrums. The pessimistic
say the country is recovering in spite of itself and the tin-
: kering of politicians, but that's good! We're still trying to
get accustomed to a new President, after. two years, and
put our minds at ease and get,over the shock of electing a
whole new philosophy in our leadership,. but we are as-
sured we will survive whatever comes our way. Still, even
those of our citizens who are Inundated with problems are
the envy of the largest percentage of the population of the
The United States is STILL a nation others are trying to
become a part of; breaching our borders, if you will.
We find it hard to commiserate with people who are
worried about a few, inconveniences when: there are so
many people in the world who would give their right arm to
be able to have the type problems ,we complain about.
Many are dying everyday-trying to get to this land of milk
.and honey-on inner tubes, in-: overcrowded boats, over
walls, through fences; any way they can. If we are suffering
neatly as bad as some doom sayers claim, we're the only,
ones who know it!
We could live in a country where medical care is a nee-
dle jabbed in our neck, or arm; where a home is a few
sheets of tin, or cardboard, held up by a couple of poles;
where sanitation or proper waste disposal is a pause in the
woods, or an open ditch running down the middle of a dirt
path in front of the hovel where you are forced to exist.
We may complain about having to pay $4.00 or $5.00
for a piece of meat to eat... or 89 a pound for a turkey to
grace our Thanksgiving table. Here in America there will be
no standing in line at a super market for an hour or so to
buy that piece of meat or that turkey, only to have the
clerk announce, "Sorry, we're sold out 'til next week!"
There is plenty to be thankful for this year. One of the
things we can be most thankful about is that we live in a
nation which still pauses one full day each year to give God
thanks for what He has blessed us with. Considering our
drift toward. removing God from our public lives, the
growth of crime in our society pausing to give thanks
to Him means there ,still might be hope for us. We can cer-
tainly be thankful for that!
We complain about our growing medical expense, high-
er prices, ecological danger, disappearing acreage, water
shortages, floods, fires, earthquakes, crop failures, lack of
crop supports, etc., and etc. If there is nothing to complain
about, we'll invent something! But, it only takes a holiday
observance such as Thanksgiving to bring us back to the
reality of just how much we are truly blessed!

Physical Therapy Is Like Boot Camp Under 'Sgt. Stiffler
IF YOU EVER have a choice
of whether or not to have yourself
a stroke of whatever magnitude,
don't do it; hear? The physical
therapy (they call it) they put you
through is nothing but Just repe-
tition of lift, push, grip, twist and
turn everything from your neck to
This is not so bad when you
first start out your "therapy" in
the hospital because they are just
trying to get you up to go to the
bathroom without messing up
their beds. But afterwards, the
repetition tends to drive you up
Back when I was still in the
hospital, they hauled me around
on those wheelchairs to the phys-
ical therapy department and
back. There I was in a backless
hospital T-shirt with all my digni-
ty crushed, stinking like a dock
worker because I had no shower
for a week, my head itching like it
had a family of cooties living in it
because I had no hair wash for a
week and I was expected to per-
form like a trained seal.
IT WAS A tough three days*
with those cute little physical
therapists hanging on my every
move and me embarrassed to
high heaven by my appearance
and stench until they finally
tossed me in the shower. That
was nearly three weeks ago and I
still don't know if I have it accu-
rately figured out whether they
put me in there for my relief rath-
er than theirs.
Now that I'm back home, I at-
tend those sessions at Gulf Pines
Hospital under the watchful but
experienced eye of physical thera-
pist Charles Stiffler and his able
assistant Vic Sellers.
I'm here to tell ya, that's quite
a come down in physical thera-"
pists. I started out in Bay Memo-
rial with 'two of the cutest little
therapists you ever saw and I end
up with an ugly old buzzard like
Charles Stiffler. There's just no
Justice in it.
We get together in our twice
weekly sessions and he'll come at
me with "Alright, buckle up,
down on that floor and gimme
ten!" As we walk into the exercise
room, he rolls up his sleeve,,
grabs a pillow and a piece of rub-
ber hose arid I'm waiting to see
which he's going to use first and
HE COMES AT ME with
these intricate tools of the trade
along with a paper cup and says
"Boy we're going to make you like
; new again!"
Right then I knew he was
shooting me a line of bull because
I wasn't "new" to start with and
everybody knows you can't make
a purse out of a sow's ear. But.I
was willing to work hard if he
.could Just get me where I could
manipulate a fork and spoon with
my right hand again. Eating with
your left hand is enough to drive
anybody to diet.
What does he do? He set that
styrofoam cup down after pouring
out an assortment of little gad-
gets like coins, paperclips, rubber
bands, screws, etc.. and growling
"Alright buddy, pick'em up!"
That's easier said than done,
but I did it duly impressing Mr.
Stiffer with my abilities, but did
that satisfy Stiffler? No sir-ee-
bobl He just made-it a little hard-
er- by moving that cup all over'
creation and throwing down
smaller things for me to pick up.
Stiffer believes in his styro-
foam cup, his green rubber-
bands, which are.about four feet
long, and picking my foot up time
after time. He says it is to gain
dexterity. I say it's to test my pa-
tience for foolish exercises. For
some miraculous reason, I'm get-
ting back my dexterity, balance
and strength in spite of those silly
little baby exercises he has me
THE OLD CODGER ex-
plained to me, "Boy you've got to
learn to use that arm and leg all
over again so let's get started and
don't give me any guff." Well ap-
parently, old Stiffler isn't such a
stiff neck after all because he is
getting results with his unortho-
dox and infantile exercises. Gulf
Pines is well equipped to handle
physical therapy; as well
equipped as anything I saw in
Panama City and since. it's just a
block from home, that makes it
The only good thing about
this is that I currently have a
good excuse for staying out of
work. I let people like Shirley and
Nikki be my fingers on the com-
puters while I loll back in my
easy chair and dictate for them

this was a really big newspaper

I don't know how long they
are going to put up with it, but
I'm going to continue taking my

Cong. Peterson Takes
Active Transition Role
"Tid- its For Thanksgiving"
*We have an awful lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. As
far as I know we are all in good health and have a beautiful and lov-
ing grand-daughter. Good health is enough to give thanks for. And
not just at Thanksgiving, but year-round. 1.
*Speaking of our grand-daughter, just yesterday I asked my
wife how old she was. She told me she was 15 months old and I
couldn't help but think that she is just about the age of one of
those little boys who died when their mother strapped them in their
car seats and ran the car into a lake. There's a place waiting for
that woman, sick or not, and it's not going to be pleasant.
Our oldest son will miss Thanksgiving at home this year; the
first one he has missed in his 27 years on planet earth. He is out on
a boat in the Gulf doing some research and the boat won't be in un-
til late Thanksgiving day. We will miss him and someone will have
to eat his share of turkey and dressing, sweet potatoes, english pea
salad, corn bread, green beans, potato salad and freshly brewed ice
tea and bahana pudding. I think I'll appoint myself to the task.
Well, someone has to do it!
*Did you hear about the man who prayed for God to let him win
the lottery? He told God he would nevar ask Him for anything else if
He would just let him win the lottery ope time. One night, just after
he had prayed, the room became very still and quiet and a voice
came from out of the darkness and said, "'Do your part, Buy a tick-
'et!" There's a message in that story somewhere.
*Do you know what a Yankee is? Kenneth O'Neill does and he
told it in a letter to the New York Times Magazine, which was re-
printed in an old edition of Reader's Digest. Mr. O'Neill said: 'To.a
foreigner, a Yankee is an American. To a Southerner In the Unitrd
States, A Yankee is a Northerner. To a Northerner. a Yankee lives in
New England. Here in New England. a Yankee Is someone from Ver-
mont. To a Vermonter, a Yankee is someone who still uses an out-
house. I'll stoj. here." Very well put. Mr. O'Neilll
*Did you hear about the teenage boy who told his parents that
he was tired of living inr a small town like Port St. Joe? He said he
wanted to go somewhere where he could make some "real" money,
meet some beautiful girls and have a really good time. He said he
couldn't do any of that in Port St. Joe so he was leaving. Before he
got to his truck his father called out to him. "Don't try to stop me!"
he said, "My mind is made upl" "I'm not trying to stop you," I said.
"I want to go with you!"
*Well, the political dust has settled and most of the signs are
down and the ads on the radio and TV have stopped. Did you hear
about the politician who was so concerned about air pollution that
he cancelled 10 of his political speeches? I didn't either! '
*About a week ago I played a round of golf, the first time I had
played in about a year. One of our foursome was a new-comer I had
never played with, so I asked,him what his handicap was. "I'm a
scratch golfer," he said. "I write down all my good scores and
scratch out all my bad ones." I watched him very closely and

3 Ways to Remove Stumps...
They Take A While Or Quick Fix Costs Money
Removing a tree stump can
be time consuming, costly, or
back breaking. Take your pick.
There are three recommended
ways of tree stump removal. De-
pending on which method you
choose, you pay the price in time,
money, or muscle.
Tree stumps, which can be a
real problem in the home land-
scape, can be removed in three
basic ways. I'll describe each, and
you ,can decide which best suits
your needs. My information on
tree stump removal was provided
by Dr. Robert Black, Extension
Urban Horticulturist with IFAS of
the. University of Florida.
If you have time to spare, rot-
ting is probably the cheapest and
easiest method of removing
stumps. Rotting or decaying is a
process by which fungi break
down the wood. Since fungi
doesn't have chlorophyll and
can't make food the way green
pants do, they obtain their nour-
ishment from other sources, such
as wood stumps. Decaying a
stump will take a long time. But,
the process can be hastened by
keeping the fungi warm and
moist During periods of little
rainfall, keep a stump damp by
watering it frequently.
. Decaying also can be acceler-
ated by drilling large holes, at
least an inch in diameter, into the
siump. These holes expose more
wood surface to the decaying fun-
gi. Adding a little fertilizer also
will speed decay. However, be
careful not to add a lot of fertiliz-
er, because too much will burn
the decay causing fungi. About
two cups sprinkled over the
stump should be adequate.
If you don't have the time to
spare, the quickest way to remove
a stump is to cut it out of the
ground. But, we recommend this
method only if you have a strong
back and are willing to spend
many, hours of hard work. If this
process sounds right for you, dig
a trench around the stump,
about two feet wide and two feet
deep. Then, cut the roots with an
axe and drag the stump from the

hole. Depending upon size, you
may need some mechanical pow-

If you don't have the time,
muscle, or machinery to tackle
the first two methods, you may
want to call a professional tree re-
moval service. They have equip-
ment which removes stumps by
grinding them into small chips. It
usually takes a few minutes, but
it can be expensive.

Gov. Sets Retired
Governor Lawton Chiles re-
cently signed a proclamation de-
claring November 20 as "Retired
Teachers Day" in the state of Flor-
ida; a day to honor them and
their years of service.
In doing so he urged the resi-
dents of Florida to join with him
in saluting the many retired
teachers of the state for their val-
uable contributions to our educa-
tional system and its students.
Governor Chiles states in the
proclamation that the educational
system within our state is a vital
part of our society providing edu-
cation for young and old alike.
From this system comes many of
our professional people, including
lawyers, doctors, business admin-
istrators and others too numer-
ous to name. A vital part of the
educational process is the teach-
er who spends, much of their life-
time giving of themselves by con-
veying his br her knowledge and
experience to their students.
There are many-retired teach-
ers who reside in our community
who are well deserving of our ap-
preciation for their past service to
our families. Take time soon to
acknowledge one that you know.

stumps. Many of these products
have been tested, and have been
found to be ineffective. There are
no magic chemicals on the mar-
ket which will dissolve stumps in
a few days.
Also, burning was a method
once used to remove stumps.
However, this can be dangerous.
And, many communities have or-
dinances against burning. In
such cases, the procedures we've
discussed should be used.
Finally, if you're really
"stumped" about what to do with
an unsightly stump, just leave it
there. You can always find ways I
to use it in your landscape. For
example, a tree stump can be
made into a interesting container
for annuals. Or, you might place
potted plants on the stump, to
help it blend in with the rest of

when you re-elected me to serve you in the Florida
House of Representatives. In an election that. resulted
in so many incumbents being defeated, I am deeply
humbled .by your overwhelming support. However, I
recognize your frustration with government and its ina-
bility to solve the complex problems of this state.
Whether you were among the great majority who vot-
ed for me or one who wanted to see a change, I recom-
mit my pledge to represent all of you to the very best
of my ability. I will strive to reflect your values with a
strong effective voice.
Kay, Meredith, Doug and I appreciate your friend-
ship and support.

A SORE THROAT
V Even a minor sore throat can be extremely dangerous to a
child if neglected. It might be one of-the early symptoms of
rheumatic fever and this disease causes more deaths than
polio did before Dr. Salk.
The cause of rheumatic fever is the streptococcus germ
which can be easily identified by your physician. The
diagnosis must be as soon as possible. Beginning symptoms _-
are the innocent looking minor sore throat, a feeling of
fatigue and mild joint pains. Don't wait for the severe
stages when the sore throat develops with a high fever, sore
neck glands, red and swollen joints. By this time
irreparable damage may have been done to the heart.

Gators Appear In Bowl Game
The Class AA Wewahitchka
Gators gave the AAA Blountstown
Tigers all they wanted for 3 and a
half quarters of hard-hitting foot-
ball action in the Seventh Annual
Quincy Rotary Bowl last Thurs-
day night. The Tigers' size advan-
tage began to take its toll in the
fourth quarter with Blountstown
scoring 16 unanswered points,
defeating the Gators, 40-19.
Wewa carried all the game's
momentum on the field with
them to start the contest. The Ga-
tors pounced on a Tiger fumble at
the 35 yard line to take their first
possession of the game. A few
plays later with fourth and ten on
the 19 yard line, Gator quarter-
back Will Sumner found receiver
Andrew Williams in the end zone,
giving Wewa a 6-0 lead early in
the first quarter.
Noseguard Allen Roberts gave,
the Gators good field position
again early in the second quarter,
sacking Blountstown's quarter-
back Travis Mosley on a fourth
down play, giving Wewahitchka's
offensive unit the ball on their 40
yard line. Sumner and Williams
paired up again on the first play
from scrimmage with a 60 yard
scoring pass, putting Wewa on
top 12-0, with eight minutes left
in the half.
The rest of the first half be- ,
longed to Blountstown as the Ti-

will be held at Gulf Coast Com-

or both camps. The 'cost for each
camp is $35 or $60 for both, and
includes lunch for both camps.

time, taking a 12-12 tie to the
Blountstown scored first in
the third quarter, going up 18-12
on their first possession, after re-
covering a Gator fumble.
Wewa didn't give in. taking
the ensuing kickoff arid driving
the length of the field, scoring on
a one yard run by quarterback
Sumner with 4:14 remaining in
the third quarter. David Hy-
smith's point after attempt was
good, putting the Gators back on
top 19-18. Hysmith and Williams
had 15 and 20 yard pass recep-
tions from Sumner keeping the
scoring drive alive.
The Tigers (9-2) broke the
contest open late in the fourth
quarter, but the Gators (8-3)
gained respect in their first Quin-

Probability of Another Look
One of the more interesting issues Florida lawmakers might take an-
other look at after organization this week is repeal of the public financing
law that authorizes matching campaign funds for governor and cabinet
candidates who accept a spending cap.
It is pretty clear the general public disliked the spectacle of politi-
cians stooping to new lows of campaigning with outlandish negative ad-
vertising bought in good measure with public matching money. It's bad
enough to have to listen to the garbage the average politician puts out
during a campaign, but it's infuriating to have to pay them out of the
public till to do it.
Nobody liked it It was welfare for politicians.
One reason repeal of the public campaign financing law is likely to
get a hearing is that Florida's new Secretary of State Sandra "What a Gal"
Mortham is absolutely opposed to it. As Republican House minority
whip, she worked for two years to kill the public financing measure. On
Jan. 3, she will. be the state's chief elections officer, a highly visible posi-
tion to continue her battle and bills can be readied for the drive now.
Of course, her main opponent will be Gov. Lawton Chiles who is the
chief sponsor of the law and also its biggest benefactor. It hasn't all been
counted tup yet, but he collected more than $2 million in public financing
for his campaign against Jeb Bush, who like Mortham in her cabinet
race, refused the public financing.
Chiles has control of the Florida cabinet which in January will have
.four Democrats (including Chiles) and three Republicans. However, he
has perhaps lost the strong control hedbnce had with the Florida House
and Senate. There is no doubt he would 'reto a bill repealing the public fi-
nancing law if it comes to his desk.:
S Mortham, 43,- suggested the Legislature might consider public fi-
nance in a separate bill and not a part of a- general campaign reform bill
which is close to the heart of House Speaker to be Peter Wallace..
"Democrats hate it as much as Republicans do," she said.

ings or on the floor of the House or Senate and especially by Gov. Lawton
However, I do feel a certain sympathy for my working class neighbors
in this liberal government town. Their golden parachutes aren't as well-
padded as the elected politicians they work for but they're taken better
care of than their counterparts who work in private sector jobs around
the rest of Florida. :

NEWS: A Suitcase Parade
TALLAHASSEE (WNS) Former State Corrections Chief Richard Dug-
ger fired last week for backing the wrong candidate for governor is the
first in what is expected to be a rash of changes in state government per-
sonnel as a result of the Nov. 4 election.
The: oddity of It is that Gov'. Lawton Chiles fired Dugger, 51, six
months short of his 30-year career retiremenl-date,- because-he-support-
ed challenger 1leb Bush. Most of the changes. including some massive
downsizing in the Department of Education and Comptroller's office, are
expected to come after Jan. 3 when Republicans take over three cabinet
posts and the Florida Senate.
Dugger was corrections secretary in the Bob Martinez administra-
tion. Demoted by Chiles who appointed Harry Singletary to the post,
Dugger took a job running Putnam Corrections Institution at Palatka, he
contributed $1,400 to Bush, campaigned for him on off-duty hours, and
by Jack Harper
attended Bush's election night celebration in Miami.
'There can only be one secretary of the Florida Department of Correc-
tions," Singletary told the news media.: "It's necessary for us to part our
Dugger said he was informed of his dismissal (effective Dec. 1) by Re-
gional Corrections Director Joe Pewtrovsky. "He said the governor's office
had talked to Secretary Singletary and this was their decision," Dugger.
Chiles' Press Secretary Jo Miglino said the governor did not order the
firing, but left the decision to Singletary. 'We gave them the go-ahead,"
said Chief of Staff Tom Herndon.
Comptroller-elect Bob Milligan, former three-star Marine general, has
asked for the resignations of more that 70 senior managers and aides on
Comptroller Gerald Lewis' staff, but said those who.want to work for him
can submit resumes with their resignation letters. "I don't think you-have
to come in here with a big axe and start chopping, although I do intend
to'skinny-up' the operation," Milligan said.
Education Commissioner-elect Frank Brogan requested the resigna-
tion letters with resumes from 59 top managers on defeated Commission-
er Doug Jamerson's staff. Brogan said he envisioned eliminating about a
third of the management jobs and cutting the overall education bureau-
cracy 50 percent. Less government Interference, more choices for parents
and a return to local school district control highlights Brogan's conserva-
Live program he'll take to the Florida Cabinet on which Gov. Lawton
Chiles still has majority control.

more spending on preventive programs to cut juvenile crime and teacher
GOIN ROOFER SUES: The worker whose statements sparked an in-
vestigation that led to the subsequent firing of Florida State University
Athletic Director Bob G6bin is suing for payment for installing gutters and
other metal work on the controversial roof on Goin's former Tallahassee
home. "I just think-it is ironic that Goin gets a $300,000 reward and I'm
having to sue to get paid," said Ron Ellis.
The $300,000 he mentioned was the settlement over the next two
years Seminole Boosters gave Goin to resign in the face of criticism that
he accepted a free roof from builders of the multi-million dollar FSU sta-
Ellis told state investigators that the contractor who hired him in-
structed him to be careful not to leave paper trails on the roof work at
Goln's house because it was a deal to get the company additional con-
struction projects at FSU. It set off the investigation by the comptroller's
office that is still on-going.
Ellis is suing the contractor Southeast Enterprise Group for
$1,268.19. "It doesn't sound like much, but it's a lot to me," Ellis said.
WELFARE REFORM: Taking leadership over what is expected to be
THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, NOV. 24, 1994 PAGE 3B
a Republican thrust for welfare reform next year, Gov. Lawto'n Chiles
said Friday he'd like to expand the pilot programs designed to prepare re-
cipients (mostly welfare mothers) to get a job or accept one the state finds
for them within two years.
Speaking at tht Florida Commission on Human Rights's convention
on civil rights, Chiles said he wants to expand the programs now under-
way in Escambia and Alachua counties to, five more counties. About 110
families are in the Alachua program where enrollment is voluntary, More
than 900 families are enrolled in the Escambia program which is manda-
tory for parents on welfare with minor children older than six months.
A MISTRIAL: One Juror who is a full-time business-administration
student at Florida A & M University and part-time legal secretary in Mori-
ticello was the lone holdout last week that caused a mistrial in the case
of the British tourist slaying at a highway reststop near Tallahassee last
year. The 20 year old juror, who was also the forewoman of the jury, said
that from the evidence she had a hard time placing John (Billy Joe) Cru-
mitie, 17, in the stolen car and therefore at the reststop where the shoot-
ing occurred during an attempted robbery. There were four black women,
six white women and two white men on the jury.

Food poisoning is caused by
bacteria or their toxins which in
most cases are undetectable by
sight, smell .or taste. Millions of
people are affected by food poi-
sonihg each year.
Itsf is important to practice
safe food handling and prepara-
tion method, throughout the
year. The hectic holidays can
present even more possibilities
for food poisoning at home: larg-
er-than-usual meals often are be-
ing prepared; new recipes and
cooking techniques may be tried:
buffets 'may be set out for guests;
large amounts of leftovers may re-
main for additional meals; food
may be transported from one
home to another, etc.
With the potential for food
-poisoning increased during the
holidays, it 'is especially impor-
tant to remember safe food han-
dling and preparation practices.
Here are a few tips:

frost your turkey in the refrigera-
tor; rather than on the counter
top. Allow one day of defrosting
for each five pounds of turkey
weight You can safely refrigerate
the thawed turkey another day or
two, but don't let the juices drip
on other foods. To reduce defrost-
ing time, wrap the bird in a wa-
terproof plastic bag, and 'sub-
merge it in cold water. Cold water
slows the' bacterial growth that
may occur: in the thawed outer
portions while the inner areas are
still thawing. Change the water
every 30 minutes.
Cooking the stuffing separate
from the turkey.
It's safest to cook stuffing.
separately rather than Inside the
turkey cavity. But, cooks who in-'
sist on cooking the stuffing inside
the turkey should keep safety
precautions in mind. Stuffing
placed inside an uncooked turkey
promotes bacterial 'growth, so
don't stuff a turkey before storing
it in the refrigerator. Instead, pre-
pare the stuffing ingredients the
day before and refrigerate them,
then combine the Ingredients and
stuff the bird just prior to cook- r
ing. Some frozen, turkeys come
pre-stuffed. Doi't cook a stuffed
bird the night before, and don't
thaw a pre-stuffed bird before
cooking. Closely follow all storing
and cooking directions, and ob-
serve extended cooking times to
ensure food safety.
Don't interrupt the cooking
Interrupting the cooking pro-
cess or cooking a turkey in stages
promotes the growth of bacteria.
This is because the turkey may
have been heated enough to acti-
vate bacteria but not enough
enough to kill them. So, once
you've started cooking the turkey,
continue the cooking, process
Carve the turkey into serving
slices before refrigerating.
Cooked, ,whole, stuffed tur-
keys don't store safely in the re-
frigerator. Remove the stuffing
from a turkey cooked in advance
and refrigerate it Immediately. Al-
low the turkey'juices to settle for
20 to 30 minutes, then carve the
fird into serving slices, place
them in shallow containers, cover
and refrigerate. When it's time to
serve. reheat dithe slices and the
stuffing in a conventional or mi-
ctrowave oven to a temperature of
at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit
Make sure cooking tempera-
tures are high enough to kill bac-
The temperatures between 40
and 140 degrees Fahrenheit are
the most dangerous for bacterial
growth. Bacteria grow best -- and
some produce heat-resistant tox-
iqs in this temperature range.
cooking a turkey at less than 325
degrees Is unsafe because It lets
t.e bird and the stuffing remain
ii the danger zone too long. A
meat thermometer -- inserted into
the thickest part of the thigh next
to. the body but not touching the
.pne -- is, the best way to assure
proper cooking to at least 180 de-
grees. Stuffing should be heated
ti at least 165 degrees.
Take extra care with holiday
Be sure you have enough
room in your refrigerator for the
perishable foods you plan to serve
at holiday buffets. Servings are
best kept small and replenished
directly from the refrigerator or
: stove. The longer food is kept out,
especially beyond two hours, the
greater the risk of food poisoning
even if hot trays or chaffing
dishes are used. Refrigerate per-
ishables -- especially the turkey
arid other meat and poultry prod-
ucts' -- as soon as possible after
your guests have finished eating.
S' Careful storage of leftovers
levels anclU Uca 1UUUseoo pUoisoning.
Leftover turkey can be safely re-
frigerated for three to four days,
but stuffing and gravy should be
used within a day or two. To
speed up the cooling. process,
slice leftovers into serving sizes
