Gulf County's Doc Whitfield Road serving the Ho-
.ward Creek community and Gulf Forestry Camp is
paying the price. .. numerous-heavy truck loads of
dirt being hauled to Saul's Creek Road area is fin-

ishing off the already deteriorated road..
-I


Trucks dump huge quantities of dirt on Saul's Creek Road while George Roberts, contractor, and Ralph Rish, engineer, watch.



Road Repair Work, Also Cause Problems


Work Underway on Saul's Creek Road has December Completion Date


Rebuilding of the Saul's Creek Road is nearing completion
with over 15,000 yards of fill material already used to repair
the flood-damaged road, according to George Roberts of C. W.
Roberts Construction.
The county road which runs for several miles makes
Saul's Creek accessible by vehicle. Traffic on the road is at its
peak during hunting season since the road also gives. access
to some of the county's most popular hunting spots.
'The road is open to traffic but motorists are urged to
drive- with -caution in"-the- areas where& onstact'n-h vork--i--
continuing." Roberts said. Twventy to thirty thousand yards of
fill material will be required to totally bring the road back to


grade. The fill material is being hauled from David Taunton's
pit in Honeyville and is proving to be excellent fill for the pro-
ject according to Roberts. But, the access roads have created
delays for the project, failing to hold up the loaded trucks car-
rying material to the project.
Roberts projected that work on the road should be com-
pleted by Christmas if the weather and road conditions don't
force further delays.
Severalis6ctfons-ofth'e-dirt road were totally washed away
by the floor waters created by Tropical Storm Alberto, leaving
large lakes of water where the road once was.


Portions of Howard Creek Road bear evidence of heavy damage.


Gulf Schools Rank First In State

i In Percentage of Graduates; Third In Low Percentage of Dropouts


"Miss Annie" Gaskin


AreaLeader,

Dies Monday
Annie Elizabeth Gaskin, af--
fectionately known as "Miss An-
nie", died Monday,. ending a long
and fruitful life as a pioneer in
Gulf County. Born in 1906 to
Champion Travis Traylor and Ida
Richards Traylor in Red Qak, she
came to Gulf County with her
hew husband, Dave, and set up
housekeeping in Wewahitchka
where they put down roots which
endured until their death. Both
Miss Annie and Dave were fix-
tures in Gulf Countys' social and .
business life for over 70 years.
Entering business as farinm-
ers, bankers, cattle ranchers, the
Gaskins were prime movers in
the creation of the Wewallitchka
State Bank in 1927. For many
years it was the only financial in-
sutution operating in the county.
Mrs. Gaskin was well known
in the county for giving a helping
hand to those who needed it and
being the "mother" to many peo-.
ple., in the Wewahitchka area.
She was very active in the
Wewahitchka First United Metho-
dist Church and the United Meth-
odist Women. She was a member
of the Order of the Eastern Star,
a charter member of the Women's
Club of Wewahitchka, and a
member of Who's Who of Ameri-
can Women.


Gulf County had a pleasant
surprise Monday, when the Flori-
da Department of Education re-
leased figures which placed Gulf
school in the top ranking among
state education facilities in drop
out rates and graduates finishing
their entire secondary school ca-
reer.
1 Gulf schools have historically
led the pack in these two catego-
ries but showed the state systems
how it was done in the report is-
sued this week with state per-
centages on the rise for dropouts
and showing a big reduction in
graduates, Gulf County was just
the opposite. State percentages of
students who dropped out before
completing high school had
shown an increase to 5.63 per-
cent. Nearly a full percentage
point higher than the previous
year. Graduation rate dipped
from 78.73 percent in 1992-93 to
75.64 percent last year.
GULF BETTERS GOALS
Gulf County, on the other
hand, showed a decrease over the
previous year of more than one
percentage point to rank third
among the state in the low num-
ber of dropouts.. In 92-93, Gulf
showed a dropout rate of 2.69
percent. Last year's rate dipped to
1.64 percent. This however was
not a low for Gulf County which
showed only 1.05 percent in the
9.1-92 school year. Only Liberty
County with a rate of 1.11 per-
cent and Flagler County with a
1.14 percent rate were lower than
Gulf.
> As for the graduation num-
bers, Gulf topped the state list.
with 97.55 percent matriculating
through the full twelve years of
school. Only two other counties
in the state were above 90 per-
cent; these were Collier County
with a 93.99 percent rate and
Liberty County with a 92.98 per-
cent.
DOE GIVES REASONS
The D. O. E. Office gave sev-
eral reasons why the important
figures should be worsening. One
was the Blueprint 2000 School
Improvement Plan and the other
was the tremendous budget cuts


which had been implemented last
year.
The Blueprint 2000 Plan stip-
ulates that all districts through-
out the state will set higher stan-
dards for students to achieve. The
higher standards were believed to
discourage already marginal stu-
dents into dropping out from
school. School are now required'
to prepare annual reports detail-
ing how they are doing. These re-


Gulf County is still experienc-
ing road problems resulting from
the floods of this past summer.
The .Board of Commissioners
heard a report in last Tuesday"s
meeting from Road Superinten-
dent Bob Lester that the Howard
Creek is "coming apart". ,
Lester said several large pot-
holes had developed on the road
with depths of as much as four to
five inches' in many areas. Dips
and bumps are also showing up
on the road, further signalling
damage. ,
He said county crews. have
done all they could to make re-
pairs to the road, but that it was
not possible for them to- repair
the road as quickly as it was com-
ing apart, especially with the
heavy traffic on the road while re-
pairs are in progress to. the Saul's
Creek Road. Lester told the Board
that signs and flashing warning
signals have been placed on the
road to alert motorists of the road
hazards that existed.
According to Administrative
Assistant Larry Wells the road
damage is indirect flood damage
caused by heavy traffic on the
road while repairs are in progress


ports include more accurate in-
formation on dropouts and were
thought to be part of the reason
for the deterioration in numbers.
Another main reason for in-
creased numbers of dropouts and
reduction in graduates was given
as being caused by the one billion
.in cuts in school spending as a
result of the recession in the early.
1990's. but Gulf, Liberty and Fla-
gler Counties also received cuts


on the Saul's Creek road. Sixty to
ninety trucks per day are using
the road to haul fill material and
heavy equipment to the project.
Wells said that the Howard Creek
Road just wasn't designed to han-
dle the extent of heavy usage it is
sustaining.
The Florida Division of Emer-
gency Management has already
approved the repair of direct flood
damage at the east end of the
road, but most of the current
problems are located on the west-
ward end. He said the state had
been contacted and, should be
here this week to assess the dam-
age and determine if the road
would-qualify for any disaster as-
sistance under the program.
Wells felt the state would proba-
bly offer some assistance to the
county after inspecting the dam-
age.
WAKE PROBLEMS
Smiley Miles of White City ad-
dressed the Board notifying them
of wake problems and damage in
the area. .around the White City
bridge. Miles said one of the prob-
lems was that the "No Wake"
signs that had been posted along
the Intracoastal Waterway were


in their budget which affected
school operations in those small
counties tremendously. Despite
the financial reductions forced
upon them, the school districts
continued to perform favorably.

MONEY PICTURE BETTER
Outgoing Education Commis-
sioner Doug Jamerson has asked
for $405 million to reduce class
sizes for students enrolled in ba-


no longer there.
"I contacted the Corps of En-
gineers, who told me to contact
the Coast guard, who told me to
contact the state, who told me I
should contact the county, and
here I am," said Miles, who has
been attempting to get new signs
installed on the canal.
Commission Chairman Mi-
chael Hammond suggested that
the county road department see if
they could come up with some
signs and the county install the
signs on the waterway. Hammon
said that since it was a replace-
ment of the signs, not a reauthor-
ization, the county should be
okay to erect the signs.
OTHER BUSINESS
-Heard and approved a re-
quest from Charles Hanlon to be
grandfathered in as a county con-
tractor enabling him to secure
county contractor's license with-
out having to take the state con-
tractors' exam.
-Accepted Carolina Soft-
ware's bid of $7,450 was the best
bid for equipment and work to
computerize and update the

sic programs. This is designed to
Improve student perfonnances in
the future.
According to the state report
about half of the 29,584 students
who dropped out of school last
year were white. 31 percent were
black, 18 percent were Hispanic,
and 1.3 percent were Asian Amer-
ican or American Indian.
The dropout rate measures
the number of students who quit
school during a given year. The
graduation rate measures the
percentage of students who re-
ceive a diploma, certificate of
completion or GED four years af-
ter their class enters ninth grade.

ISN'T IT STRANGE HOW the opponents of GATT use almost
the same arguments against the trade agreement as those who
Advocate shopping at home use at this time of the year, as we
'come into the Christmas shopping season?
Opponents to GATT see it as a deal with the third world
countries of the world and their cheaper goods made with cheap
labor, taking jobs from Americans who have made the products
for' years. The owner of a small textile dyeing concern in New
England expressed just these concerns last week. There was
none of this "It's my money; I can spend it 'for the least expensive
goods if I want to. There's nothing wrong with saving money!"
How many times have you heard this? How many times have
you used the same rationale to justify your own shopping hab-
its? What arguments did you hear against this position in de-
fense of GAIT?
Boosters of home towns are offering the same argument as
the opponents of GATT. They were such arguments as: "You get
'more value out of shopping at home which will balance out and
even surpass the few cents saved from shopping in a giant dis-
count store." 'You save time for the most part and time is
money in the raw!"
For instance, a huge discount store announced its opening
in an adjoining city a couple of weeks ago. As an "extra special",
they offered a counter-top range unit at a sale price. That coun-
ter-top range was available in Port St. Joe; everyday, for $10.00
less than the super store had it advertised, on special!
You get the merchant's personal guarantee you are getting
value received and-most important of all-he takes the mer-
chandise back if it is found to be faulty. Your local merchant
spends a considerable amount of the profits he has made from
his sales to you in bettering his community through taxes paid
and through donations/contributions to local activities,: church-
es and schools. Think of an attribute in your community and
think of whether of not it could exist without money-where
does that money come from and would you care to be without
that particular additive to your community life?
THERE ARE ,ANY NUMBER OF good solid reasons to at
least give your, local inerchant an opportunity to fill your needs
.-before you go out of town. If he can't, even he won't mind if you
. :go elsewhere to make that purchase. In fact, he will probably
make a suggestion as to where you might obtain a particular
item for the best- value and with the greatest dependability in the
*:source of supply.


: A Little Help, Please

CALIFORNIA PASSED A LAW and is grumbling and fuming,
Floridd is complaining to high heaven over the expense involved
-and being saddled with the responsibility of caring for aliens.
"Meanwhile Cubans are on the way to our shores by the plane-
load., daily.
We don't have anything against Cubans and their pursuit of
happiness. We don't even have anything against them coming to
the United States to hunt that happiness or the U.S. welcoming
them to our shores. It does rankle our innards that we here in
Florida' are etpe'cted to pay the entire bill for the enjoyment of
their company.--- ;. .- '. -: :-. .... -
There's something about this playing the host to the "hud-
dled masses" which runs into more "fun" than we bargained for.
THOSE FOLKS OUT IN California are raising all amount of
disturbance over the flood of Mexicans flooding their confines
and using up all their social services money, while their citizens
have to get along on short rations or none at all.
They voted against having to pay for all the "have nots" in
their state recently and their governing people don't want to
abide by their wishes.
That's why so many public servants were voted out of office
in November; they didn't pay attention to the wishes of the peo-
ple. They lost sight of the fact that John Q. Papermaker was sick
and tired of working overtime to build monuments for public ser-
Vants.
FLORIDA'S REPRESENTATIVES IN Washington should
consider the cost Florida's taxpayers are being called on to bear
-in order to pay for the peoples of the Caribbean flocking to our
shores without any appreciable help. It's fine and desirable to be
charitable but the constituents of Illinois or South Dakota aren't
being called on to put up with.the crowds, put up with having to
deal with another culture, fit them into their school system and
provide instruction they can understand.
In other. words, don't cast stones at either Florida's or Cali-
:fornia's complaints over this problem until you have walked a
mile or two in their sandals.

"Are you ready?"
"I dunno. Leon, you sure this
is going to work?"
"Trust me. You are fixing to
take off just like him!"
"Him" was the guy in the seri-
al. For the past several Satur-
day's we'd sat enthralled at the
Park Theatre and watched "him"
miraculously escape week after
week from desperate and seem-
ingly hopeless situations. Now, if
you never partook in those Satur-
day afternoon double features
starring Lash LaRue, Johnny
Mack Brown or Gene Autry I've
probably lost you already. But if
the mere mention of "Previews of
Coming Attractions" and "Also Se-
lected Short Subjects" conjures
up the smell of popcorn and a
sudden, uncontrollable desire for
a Nello Wafer, pull up a chair ---
you've probably gone home and


done some of these same things.'
The year was 1956.
"Leon, this rope is not going
to slip. Is it?"
"No way. You just hold your
arms straight up. like he did ---
you're going to be the first Colbert
ever to fly like Rocket Man."
We couldn't go home to televi-
sion. videos or Super Nintendo.
For us. the Saturday matinee had
to last all week. It's no small won-
der that our imaginations kept Al-
lan "Rocky" Lane. Hopalong Cas-
sidy. Whip Wilson. Red Ryder.
Roy Rogers and anyone else we
needed "captured" down at the
barn to be summoned when we
needed them.
That old barn was a special
place.
The loft, alone., had seen
more gun battles than Frontier
Street In Dodge City. We watched
High. Noon and shot down Frank
Miller twenty seven times in the
next two days. I know we got him
every time 'he stepped off the
train. We worked a lot faster than
Coop because we didn't have to
worry about a sniffling, complain-
ing Grace Kelly showing up in


every scene. Back in those days
we stuck to strictly kissing the
horse. And we quite naturally had
the edge on Coop and Frank
'cause we never had to re-load.
We saw Broken Arrow and
got to pulling for the Indians. The
loft became Cochise's camp. We
piled up bales of hay for tepees.
And Leon decided for the big
scene where Jimmy Stewart rides
in to "lay it all out" for Jeff Chan-
dler we needed a camp fire --- lis-
ten, we darn near burnt the
whole place down. If Daddy
hadn't seen the smoke. I think
we'd a'lost it. He broke some
things over that deal and I guar-
antee you, it wasn't arrows .....
We didn't just do westerns.
We saw Sands Of Iwo JImo and
that loft became a beach. head in
the South Pacific. Don't you feel
sorry for kids today that are tied
to a box in the den?
"Leon. explain this thing to
me one more time."
"It's simple. The rope, tied se-
curely to your waist, runs
through the pulley up there and
comes back down to this bale of
hay."


I squinted up at Leon in the
loft door high above. Dad used
the rope and pulley to load the
hay into the loft. I didn't feel com-
fortable tied to anything. "Leon,
will it pick me off the ground?"
'This bale weighs about nine-

For Thanksgiving dinner I had
some dry turkey breast to go

I was told to enjoy that

Oh yeah! I got the type rice

SSome of My Favorite Stories"
If there's anything I enjoy it's a good, clean story that makes me
laugh. Good, clean humor is something we hear too little of these
days. The best humor is, in my opinion,, that which tells a story
that is funny but doesn't reflect on any cliss of people. -Below are a
few of my favorites.
Two farmers were walking down the road one day when one of-
them asked the other, "Say, Bubba, you: and I are real good friends,
ain't we?" Bubba didn't even hesitate when he answered, "Why,
shore, Sammy. You and me been friends all our life. You my very
best friend."
"Bubba," Sammy said, "let me agtyou something. If you had a
million dollars would you give me half of it?" Again Bubba didn't
hesitate when he answered, "Why, shore, Sammy, as good a friends
as we are, you know I'd give.you half of it."
"Let me ax you something else," Sammy said. "If you had a
hundred'bales of cotton, would you give me half of them?" As be-
fore,,Bubba didn't hesitate, "Why shore, Sammy, if I had a hundred
bales of cottdn, half of them would be yourn"
"Let me ax you one other thang. Bubba," Sammy said. "Bubba.
if you had two hogs would you giveime one of them?" This time
Bubba hesitated, but just for a second. He looked at Sammy and
,said, "Awww, shucks, Sammy. You know I got two hogsl"
Then theie was the farmer who was determined that his only
son was going to; get:the very best education- available. He sent off
to several colleges for information and finally settled on Yale Univer-
sity. His son was enrolled and when he had completed his; first
year, he returned home for the summer. "
About three days after Unice arrived home for the summer, he
* was.driving his daddy's car down the road when he spotted a friend
he had gone to high school with out in a field chopping' cotton. "
Unice stopped the car, got out and walked over to where Leroy was
working. Hei and Leroy exchanged greetings and Leroy attempted
some small talk but Unice cut him off, saying. "Actually, Leroy, I
didn't come out-here for small talk. I came out here to ax you a
Question."
"Well," Leroy replied, "go ahead and ax me. If I can answer it, I
w ill.", -' ... .
'"What I want to, ax you," Unice said, "is how do you spell rat?"
Leroy looked at Unice and said, "Unice, you don't, have: to go to no
college to know how to spell rat. You spell rat, r-a-Lt. That's how you
spell rat.",
"No, Leroy," Unibce said, "that is incorrectly spelled. That ain't
the way you spell rat." "It shore isl" countered Leroy. "R-a-t spells
ratio" "No, I'm sorry. Leroy, that is incorrectly spelled. You see, Le-
roy, I ain't talking' about no mousey rat. I'm talking' about 'rat nowl"'
And then there were the two farmers -talking one day. 'One of
them was the owner of a large number of hogs. "Say. Rudy. I heard
the other day that you might take all them hogs you got over to Do-
than and sell them. "'Well, I might," said the other farmer. "I heard
they is payin' .28t-a-pound. on hoof up there, so I might." ,
"I don't know. though," he continued. "I read in one of them
farm journals the other day that they is payin' .39e-a-pound for
hogs up there in Kansas City, so I might take them up there and
sell 'urn." ,
"Kansas City!" the first farmer replied, "Why would you want to
take them all the way up to Kansas City? Think of the time man.
Think of the time!"
"Shucks," said the other fanner. "What's time to a hog?" .
I guess I'm qualified to tell stories about country folks. I've been
V one all my life - -. .. ""

In a special called meeting
Monday the Gulf County Com-
mission took disciplinary action
in dealing with a county employee
who tested positive for drugs in
his system.

Dale Hall, employed by the
county road- department, was
suspended without pay until his
successful completion of an in-
- patient drug rehabilitation pro-
grain. Completion of such a pro-
gram would probably take four to
six weeks.

The Board unanimously ap-
proved the disciplinary action
with Comm. Nathan Peters mak-
ing the motion, seconded by Billy
Traylor.

In a proclamation signed by
Port St. Joe Mayor Frank Pate,
the week of November 27 through
December 3 is hereby recognized
as the first annual World Home
Care Week. The event establishes
a unique opportunity to pay trib-
ute to all the hard working indi-
viduals who provide high quality
health care services in homes
around the world. Although hos-'
pital services may at times be re-
quired for some individuals, our
health system's .strategy should
always be to bring health care
home.
Home care is, cost-effective,
saving millions of dollars annual-
ly. More importantly, 'surveys
show that home care is the peo-
ple's choice. It reinforces and
supplements the care provided by
friends and family members while
maintaining the recipient's digril-
ty and independence.


Spectrum Home Care will cel-
ebrate the week by hosting recep-
tions and offering blood pressure.

Free Counseling Services


Offered to Flood Victims


The Gulf County Guidance
Clinic, Inc. has announced that it
has received Federal and State
funds through the Florida De-
partment of Health and Rehabili-
tative Services to provide post-
disaster counseling services to
Gulf and Franklin County resi-
dents who were victims of Tropi-
cal Storm Alberto and the resul-
tant flooding. These funds sup-
port two counselors for Project
C.O.P.E. (Counseling. Ordinary
People in Emergencies). These
counselors are attempting to con-'
tact all Gulf and Franklin County
residents that were affected by
the storm. The counselors will
make house calls to as many vic-
tims as possible. counseling, ed-
ucational services, and case man-
agement and referral assistance
are provided by the counselors.
The range of normal reactions
':'o disasters varies dramatically in
intensity and type. It is typical for
people to experience different
phases in their reaction to a dis-
aster as Lime passes. The disaster
takes its toll on people's emotion-
al reserve as well as physical and
economic resources. These prob-
lems and feelings can last for
many months, and having some-
one to talk to about them can be
very helpful. In helping to deal
with the stresses and emotional
trauma that are inevitably experi-
enced In such a disaster, the Gulf
County Guidance Clinic's efforts
, through Project C.O.P.E. are di-
rected toward individual, couple,
and family counseling and dis-
tributing informational materials.
All Project C.O.P.E. services are
confidential and free of charge.
Anyone who would like to
know more about the type of ser-,
vices that are available to storm
victims in our area may call the
C.O.P.E. office at the Gulf County
Guidance Clinic at (904) 227-
1145. Counselors connected with
this project are Ms. Melinda Broo-
kins and Ms. Carrie Stauss. Since
Contacting storm victims is a diffi-
cult task, it is hoped that the
community will share this infor-
mation with any friends, neigh-

Helpful Hints for Buying Christmas Plants


Christmas shopping can 'be
'quite a challenge to your brain,
as well as your budget. In addi-
tion to the consideration of cost,
there's always that old question
of what to give. For some of these
on your list, plants might offer a
nice solution. A healthy, vigorous
plant usually is a welcome addi-
tion for either home or landscape.
But, before you rush to, your fa-
vorite nursery, you should con-
sider what to' look for, and what
to avoid in plant selection.
Whether you're shopping for
a gift plant for a friend, or for an
addition to your own collection,
youi should choose your purchase
carefully. Plants come in a wide
range of grades, conditions, and
Standards, and it's sometimes
hard to tell which ones have the
best chance for survival. Usually,
better plants will cost you more

money. But, this Isn't a hard and
fast rule. Where nurseries have
sales they offer top quality plants
at bargain prices. The important
thing is to be able to tell what
quality is.
If you visit a nursery which
tags plants according to the stan-
dards of the Florida Division of
Plant industry, you'll have a
much easier time deciding on
quality. A "Florida Fancy" is an
extremely healthy, vigorous plant
well shaped with good strong
branches and dense foliage.. A
"Florida Number One" is a
healthy vigorous plant with a
good shape and a good supply of
leaves. All other plants are la-
beled "Number Three." 'While
these are the cheapest plants,
thev also have the poorest chance
of survival. If your nursery
doesn't classify plants this way,
or if you buy gift plants from a
supermarket, discount store, or

similar outlet, you'll need to be
able to identify vigorous, healthy
plants on your own.
Look for compact, rather
than spindly plants. An abun-
dance of foliage is usually a sign.
A spindly plant without a good
supply of leaves may be the vic-
tim of various leaf spot diseases
or insect problems which have
caused leaves for brown or yellow
discoloration. Inspect the trunk
and branches to see that they are
well-formed, without cracks,
peels or scars. .
Carefully examine each plant
for any signs of insect or disease
problems. Some things to look for
are speckling on the leaves.,
which indicates spider mite Inju-
ry; curled or distorted leaves,
caused by aphid injury; and
small bumps on stems and un-
dersides of leaves, resulting from
a scale attack. Common disease
problems often show up in yellow

placed down for sleep on their
backs or sides. The recommenda-
tion was based on reports that
babies who sleep prone (facing
downward) have a significantly
increased chance of dying of
SIDS.
* Babies who do not sleep well
on their backs or sides can get
used to the positions. Infants
generally learn the behavior from
birth to four to six months. By six
months, most babies can roll
from their backs or sides to the
prone position and will assume
the position most comfortable to
them. Parents with Infants who
have much difficulty going to
sleep on their sides or backs can


consider placing the infants
prone and then switching the ba-
bies to their backs or sides once
he or she is asleep.
Soft sleeping surfaces can in-
crease the risk of SIDS In infants
who sleep prone. It is unclear.
however, how soft a surface must
be before it poses a threat. A
standard, firm infant mattress
with no more than a thin cover-
ing. such as a sheet or rubberized
pad between the infant and the
mattress Is recommended.

to make sure it has good color,
and hasn't been too heavily com-
pacted. Pick each plant up and
make sure that roots aren't grow-
ing out of the bottom of the pot.
Some other considerations
involve where a gift plant will
eventually be grown. If the plant
is to be kept indoors, you should
determine whether it requires
special lighting. If the plant is to
be grown outdoors, you must de,-


tennine whether it's adaptable to
the climatic conditions of its
eventual planting site. Your nurs-
eryman should be able to help
you in making such decisions.
If you follow these guidelines
for selecting gift plants, your liv-
ing Christmas p'Oesents should
provide many years of enjoyment.

local County Extension Service,

and most Happy and Prosperous

Clean Vessel Grant Program


Effective October First


Marinas can now do their
part to keep Florida waters clean,
thanks to a new grant program
which offers funds through the
Florida Marine Patrol.
The five year program sup-
ported by th U. S. Fish and
Wildlife Servi9e, allows FMP to
,provide funds to private marinas
and local governments to expand,
renovate or construct boat waste
pumpout station and portable toi-
let waste reception facilities.
"Florida needs more pumpout
stations to protect the. 8,426
miles of fresh and salt water


coastline," Major Kent Thompson
said. "Pumpout stations service
-the 715,516 registered boats in
the state -- not to mention the
tourists who visit Florida's waters
each year."
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection's Office- of Wa-
terway Management received
more than $900,000 for its first
year .of the program. Marinas
must match the grant monies
with a 25 percent contribution to-
ward their project in funds or in-
kind services.

Football: Wrecks Your Body

According to Emmitt Smith


Emmitt Smith, star of the,
Dallas Cowboys professional foot-
ball team and the National Foot-
ball League's 1993 Most Valuable
Player, says a ball carrier takes
jarring punishment comparable
to being in a series of automobile
accidents without a seat belt.
In a recent interview with the
Journal of Chiropractic, he shared
his experiences on the field as he
related his reasons for utilizing a
doctor of chiropractic on a rou-
tine basis to maintain his health.
'The only way I can actually
describe what I'm going through
on the field in a physical sense is
It's like being in 30 or 40 auto ac-
cidents." Smith said. "1 carry the
ball at least 30 times a game, and
I may catch three or four passes
a game. That's a total of having
the ball in my hands 34 times a"
game. I may block five, 10. maybe",
12 times a game, and at five or 10
miles an hour each, my body
takes a lot of punishment, and we
play 16 or more games per year."
Smith pointed out that bad
backs are a common casualty of
football, and many players see
doctors of chiropractic for treat-
ment and to help them improve
their performance. At least one
team he know has a chiropractor.
on staff.
Smith is critical. of athletes
who neglect or abuse' their
health. He is particularly dis-
turbed when he hears of drug
use, although he says the NFL is'
doing an outstanding job of-test-
ing and controlling the use of all


substances. He is also concerned
about the movement of anabolic
steroids Into schools and the
trend for steroids to be used by
high school athletes.
He says he doesn't believe in
relying on medications. "I don't
even take aspirin for- headaches.
I'm just not a medicine fan."

News...
By Linda Whitfield


A Sacred Ceremony
Second grade student, Lacey
Wood, daughter of Gloria and
Tommy Wood, recently took part
in a ceremony at the Gulf County
Courthouse. She had the distinct
privilege of holding the Bible for
her grandfather, Oscar Redd, to
be sworn in. Mr. Redd was being
sworn in as a returning school
board member for District 1.
Eating On The Bus. But Liking It
When Pre-K students and
teachers went to the Junior Mu-
seum in Tallahassee on Novem-
ber 11, they had no idea it would
be so cold. I well remember be-
cause that was the day of our
Veteran's Day program. One of
*ry students said they were cold,
and I said, "Well, think of our
men fighting in the snow, and
warm up." We all did. After a
quick tour of the facilities,. the
students had to eat lunch on the
bus because they were freezing.
But, Joyce Groom, Janice Nelson
and Teresa Redd all had a good
time anyway.
Lori Price is Commended By
The Florida Council
In a letter written to Superin-
tendent Wilder, The Florida
Council on Elementary Education
said, "I am happy to inform you
that Lori 0. Price has been select-
ed by the Florida Council of Ele-
rientary Education to receive the
Louie Carhp Creative Teaching
Grant. This award includes a
$200.00 grant. The check and a
congratulatory letter are enclosed


..Thanksgiving is 'over and
Christmas is upon us. Perhaps
we can get in a few weeks of
study before our minds go on va-
cation!
I wonder how many recog-
nized my mistake in this column
tWo weeks ago. Our second grade
class did! Just to get things
straight, it is Gov. Bradford and
Captain Miles Standish. We are
sod thankful for the rich heritage
ws have because of.. these men
and others like them.
While our younger stude-nts
were celebrating Thanksgiving
with art, plays and a special din-
ner, the older students in grades
9-12 were having a practical les-
son in construction. Most had ,a
paint brush in hand and all were
working on the new building. A
pizza lunch was the reward for


for the presentation by the Super-
intendent on behalf of the Florida
Council. Congratulations to you
and your staff in your attempts to
provide excellence in education, in
your district." The letter was
signed by Linda H. Dicks, Selec-
tion Comm. (Two Gulf County
Teachers, Liz Howell and Linda
Whitfleld were on this Council for
over 10 years.)
Early Dismissal Again
WES will have early dismissal
on December 7 to develop a
school wide writing plan. The Lin-
Ston Site will dismiss at 12:05 and
the Main Street Site at 12:00.
Wouldn't you agree that commu-
nication is one of the number one
problems In the world today? And
if so. anything to improve writing
and communicating is well worth
time spent. ,

I asked Rodney how he felt: "I
felt really nervous ... I was' shak-
ing a lot. Then after it was over, I
felt excited and happy!" Rodney
said he would mount those ant-
lers too.
During Thanksgiving week,
Rodney set up camp with his dad
in Gainesville, where he rode his
Kawasaki 80 in races on the
track. Rodney compared this
meet to the Big Bike Week which.
is held every year in that area.
Rodney-took part in the T-T
Race, which is an oval track with
a couple of bumps; the Super
Cross Race which is like the races
one sees on TV -- a regular track
with a bunch of hills and all dif-
ferent shapes and on Thariksgiv-
ing Day he rode the big track that
includes jumps one that went
straight up and straight down
and boulders that if you can't go
around them, you go over them
and usually slide down.
Rodney described the races
as including kids ten and eleven
years old from all over the world
and said. "I was racing with the
best boys In the world -- from
'Mexico,; Puerto Rico, Costa Rica,
and other places." Rodney de-
scribed his week as "Super
Great! "

Lame Duck Cabinet Deals With -


Bag Limits

On Coons and Speckled Trout
Coonskin caps were worn by House delegates who came to the Flori-
da Cabinet meeting to inform Gov. Chiles they had elected Rep. Peter
Wallace, D-St. Petersburg, speaker of the house. Ominously, there wasn't
a coonhead in the delegation of Senators (including Sen. George Kirkpa-
trick, D-Gainesville) who came in minutes later to announce they had
elected Republican Sen. Jim Scott, Fort Lauderdale, as Senate president
Grinning House members interrupted a heated debate on whether to
ban sea trout fishing in Northwest Florida in the cold months of January
and February next year or just set some bag limit on them. "Is there a
bag limit on coons?," one asked with a snicker. Nobody smiled, podner.
Coastal business people and recreational fishermen were dead serious
about avoiding the ban, Florida Marine Fisheries Commission speakers
were Just. as adamant for the ban.
.The lame duck Cabinet with four members going off the board Jan.
3 delayed a vote, although, outgoing Insurance Commissioner Tom Gal-
lagher wanted to pass an emergency closure, on sea trout fishing those
months. "I'd lMke to see what the net ban does to the harvest of all our
seafood," said Chiles." At some stage you have to consider the people as.
well as the resources."'
'This old reporter notices that environmentalists are poised to grab as
much leverage as they can out of the overwhelming 72 percent vote for a
constitutional ban: on certain types of net fishing in Florida coastal wa-
ters- that will go.into effect in July. ', .
They're getting ready' to propose some extensions like a net ban out-
side state waters, tougher enforcement laws' ith severe penalties, new
regulations' on 'commercial and recreation book-and-line fishing, and
(guess what?) a saltwater fishing license for recreational anglers who fish
from.bridges and beaches along the shoreline.
How all this is going to. come out is pretty iffy in light of the dramatic
turn toward conservatism reflected in the November election that
brought a truly two-party system to Florida since about 1871.
Republican.s,~who, control the Senate and with conservative Demo-
crats now have a clear, majority in the Florida House, are not well-known
for supporting .environmental ,causes. It is doubtful they will give the
well-organized but suffering environmental movement the kind of un-
qualified support.t wants.; ": "
Aid the'DEemociats -'shocked by the voters back home are trying to,
feel'their way'to a, middle ground which doesn't include more and more
tough government interference and regulations on anything.
Youc'an eel'the changes being quietly made in attitude and stances
up here in the beltway, ,.,
SIt's too.epally to tell. of course, but the likelihood of gridlock on emo'-
tional social issues such as prayer and sex courses in school, vouchers
for poor students to attend good private schools of their choice and wel-.
fare reform could result in bitter deadlock.
You can expect Florida's mostly liberal daily press to get more ag-
gressive and ,nasty in its news coverage, just as the politicians did in
their campaigns. They still haven't gotten the point the voters tried to get
across against waste, crime, and just too much government period. Bub-
bas like me and Clem beheve the folk don't want to see tax cuts or a
crack down on the poor. They just want some common sense, not the -
pie-in-the-sky the Democrats have given them for the last 100 years.
ABOUT THAT GAME: After recommending six of the winning Flori-
da Cabinet members in the Nov. 8 election, me and Uncle Clem Redneck
over there in Gadsden County picked the Gators by seven points over the
Noles last week. Shucks, you can't win them all. Now it appears we may
have a rematch. FSU Is a done deal for the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.
The Gators get there if they beat Alabama Saturday. Shame on Prince
Bowden for going for the tie. He's mellowed too much with age. Me and
Clem are picking the Gators again this Saturday.

ROUND-UP
-by Jack Harper



TALLAHASSEE (WNS) Gov. Lawton Chiles and the Florida Cabinet
have asked lawmakers for a special session of the Legislature in Decem-
ber to fix a glitch in the Hurricane Catastrophe Trust Fund that could
cost the state $140 million this year in federal corporate taxes.
,Chiles has the authority to call the lawmakers into special session.
After the election, which he won by a scant 70,000 votes, he said he
would not call them back unless a consensus was found on the proposed
issue before the session.
Republican Senate President Jim Scott will consider the request but
must study the issue first. The fear conservatives have in both the Sen-
ate and the House is that Chiles once the session is called will want to
broaden it to include his so far aborted Health' Care Reform program.
The Legislature created the trust fund for insurance companies fol-
lowing Hurricane Andrew in 1993. 'It provides a state sponsored pool of
money from insurance premiums in the .event another catastrophe
strikes.
The Internal Revenue Service has ruled that Florida has would be li-
able for corporate income taxes onthe trust fund unless some changes
are made in its financial structure. If changes are made, they say. it's
.$140 million in taxes this year and more in future years.
DNA SAMPLES: Attorney General Bob Butterworth says it is now le-
gal for state law enforcement authorities to collect DNA blood samples
from juvenile sex offenders and killers.
Florida is one of ten states developing a DNA data base that uses
samples from convicted sex offenders and murderers as genetic finger-
prints to match them against unsolved crimes.
DNA samples are now collected from most young killers, young sex
offenders are usually kept within the juvenlle-Justice system.
Child advocates aren't happy with the ruling. They claim the state
wants to treat Juveniles who commit violent crimes as adults.
GUANA PRESERVE: Amidst suspicions by landowners, the Florida
Cabinet has nominated a 15,000-acre tract in St. John's County for fed-
eral designation as the Guana River March Aquatic Preserve.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration must now ap-
prove the request before a plan can begin to set up a center in St. Johns
.or Flagler County to conduct research and educational programs. f
Officials of the Department of Environmental Protection insisted the
new designation would not result in new restrictions on the tract or,adja-
cent land, but a citizens committee recommended that action be delayed
until three years the southern part of the reserve which was nominated
In March begins operation.
It is expected NOAA will take two to three years to designate the land
as part of the preserve.
SCALLOPS NET BAN: The Florida Marine Fisheries Commission will
reopen a final hearing on bay scalloping rules, review the effects of the
recently passed net ban amendment and discuss options on managing
sea trout and shrimp by-catch at their Dec. 5-7 meeting next week.
MOBILE HOME RATES are expected to just about 'double for insu-
rance coverage from storms and hurricanes since the Residential Joint,
Underwriting Association approved a rate hike last week.
The association set up by the state as a last resort insurer covers
about 52,000 mobile home owners. Experts cite the full awareness of the
risk posed by another Hurricane Andrew as the reason for the big rate
hike which they say is necessary.
VOUCHERS: In hopes of proving the effectiveness of letting tax sup-
port follow poor children to private schools selected by their parents, a

I'd like to again thank the
woman on her way to work in
Marianna for stopping and help-
ing my daughter and I after bur
accident with the bear Wednes-
day morning. I was in such a
state of bewilderment, I forgot to
.get your name. .:
There are still a few people in
the world willing to stop and go
out of their way for someone else.
Thanks again,

leading environmental groups who have fallen on hard times lately are
joining together in their, fundraising strategy. It's call the Environmental,

Environnmentalists are hoping the big vote against coastal netting of:

Before



Donating

Make Sure They

Are Legitimate

Floridlans are quick to open
their hearts and pocketbooks to
help those who are less fortunate.
Often, helping others in need
means donating -money to an or-
ganization. But with so many
charitable organizations seeking
donations especially as the
holiday season approaches --
how can consumers make in-
formed decisions?
Under state law, "most organi-
zations that solicit contributions
in Florida must register with the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services. The law,
called the Florida Solicitations
Act, also.requires that:
*All non-exempt professional
fund raisers post a $50,000 sure-
ty bond.. with the Department.
Consumers may call 1-800-
HELPFLA to see if a solicitor is
registered and bonded, or to
check on complaints. -
e*The Department's toll-free
number must be included in all
printed Information distributed
by the charitable organization,
with a disclaimer stating that the
Department does not endorse or
recommend any particular group.
*All non-exempt organiza-

tions receiving contributions from
the public must make available a
copy of their financial report or
upcoming budget report to any-
one who requests it.
Some tips to consider before
contributing are:
Don't judge. a charitable, or-
ganization solely on the basis of
an impressive-sounding name.
Some questionable charities
choose names that sound like
better-known, well-respected
groups.
*Be wary of emotional ap-
peals and organizations that have

only vague plans for spending the
funds they collect.
*Ask if contributions are tax-
deductible and get the organiza-
tion's federal tax identification
number. You will need this to
claim your contribution as a tax
deduction.
Never give cash. Write a
check made out to 4he organiza-
Stio, not an individual.
*Be wary if a solicitor offers
to send a "runner" to pick up
your money. Reputable charities
are just as happy to receive your
gift tomorrow as today.
-*A contribution is not a debt,
therefore, you are under no legal
obligation to follow through on a
pledge if you have doubts later
and change your mind.
