City Gussies Up for Its


Annual Christmas Parade


Port St. Joe will throw its
annual bash in honor of old
Santa Claus, Saturday with the
activities getting underway at
11:00 a.m. and arriving at the
highlight, a parade in the down-
town area in honor of Santa
Claus, at 5:00 p.m. -
According to parade chair-
person, Tonya Nixon, the pa-
rade will be larger than last
year's full day of activities.
"There are already more floats
committed to be present and
participate in the parade than
there have been for several
years," Nixon told The Star.
Such crowd pleasers as the
Shriners, performing their zany
antics with their grown-up
boys' toys, along with antique
cars, the Mustang club, horses,
and other features will be high-
lighted in the parade, which
will trek up Reid Avenue, as
usual.
REINDEER FUN RUN
Saturday will begin early
for those who are participating
in the 5K Reindeer Run and the
one mile Fun Run.
The 5K Run begins and
ends at the Centennial Build-
ing, with the starters' gun
sounding at 8:30 a.m. The
-Reindeer Run will give medals
to the three top male and fe-


Mayor Frank Pate will be on hand to turn on the lights.


The City of Port St. Joe sent a message of objection to Flori-
da Power Corporation during Its regularly scheduled meeting
Tuesday night. "I think it's a disgrace to the City for Florida Pow-
er to close their business office here. The city pays nearly
$1,000,000 a year in power bills and I' can't believe that's not
enough to sustain an office here," Mayor Frank Pate told Mike
McDonald, local manager for the utility company.,
McDonald had approached the Board during their October
5th meeting informing them of Florida Power's intent to close
the local office sometime in December. That day came-Friday,
December 2-and according to Pate has created a flood of com-
plaints from customers experiencing problems paying their bills
and from people who have tried to make telephone contact with
the company.
Pate told McDonald. "I have received at least 30 calls today
from people complaining about paying their power bills." He con-
tinued, stating that the callers didn't know where to pay their
bills or had left their bills at home and had no way of finding out
how much the bill was through Florida Power's pay station
arrangements.


McDonald expressed his apol-
ogy for an inconvenience that
,may have been created but that
'Florida Power had made every ef-
ffort to notify customers of the
change. He said that customers
'had been notified by mail and by
informaLUon printed on the bills
they have received.
He went on to say that for ec-
onomical reasons Florida Power
'has closed several offices
.throughout the state and that
Some -short -term problems have'
existed during the transitiUon peri-
od with those closures. But ser-
vice problems were quickly ironed
out and things were running as


smoothly as In the past, he con-
tinued stating that he felt sure
that would be the case here also.
WWTP Permit Denied
City attorney Billy Joe Rish
told the board that the city's ap-
plications to lower the limits on
their permit to operate the Waste-
water Treatment Plan had been
denied along with a request for a
hearing on the matter. He went
on to ask the board if they want-
ed to appeal the decision. The
Board gave *Rish permission -to
proceed with the appeal.
For several years the City has
been trying to get the permit lev-
els lowered because the levels of


water purity permitted by the gov-
emrnment can not be consistently
met. The limits are also higher
than for similar plants in other
locations.
Speed Limits on Reid Ave.
Commissioner Johnny Linton
recommended the Board adopt a
15 mile per hour speed limit on
Reid Avenue and post speed limit
signs and no U-turn signs on the
road. The Board agreed, instruct-
ing Public Works Superintendent
Frank Healy to see if he can lo-
cate some signs to install reflect-
ing the new limits.
Downtown Redevelopment
Chairman of the Downtown
Redevelopment Committee Wayne
Taylor. approached the Board
seeking their appointment of Rex
Buzzett. Lynwood Wynne. Bob
Bearden and Wayne Taylor as
members of the Citizens Advisory
Task Force. The Task Force will
be empowered with the duties of
helping to secure the $600,000
Community Development Block
Grant that has been applied for
to assist in downtown redevelop-
ment.
Other business:
Bill Kennedy, with Preble-
Rish, Inc., told the Board that
work on Frank Pate Park should
be completed next week.
Agreed to negotiate with the
county to enter into an extended
contract with'th'ntitofurti'l Pi Wa-
ter to the beaches and Highland
View.
Agreed to cancel the Decem-
ber 20 meeting.

St. Joe Merchants Association
and coordinated by the Cham-
ber of Commerce.


In a meeting this past week
in Islamorada the Florida Marine
Commission backed off its inten-
tion to completely shut down bay
scalloping activities for the entire
state of Florida.
Such action would have elim-
inated one of Port St. Joe's main
attractions for visitors during
summer months. The F.M.C. had
previously seriously cut back on
the scalloping season, allowing

Santa In Wewa
December 17
The Wewahitchka Chamber
of Commerce is busy planning its
annual Christmas Parade, with
the festivities beginning next Sat-
urday, December 17. Santa Claus
will arrive in town at 10:00 a.m.
and will be available for photo
sessions until 12:30. "
Community members will be
asked to help trim the tree from
10:00 until 1:00 with various
handmade recyclable ornaments.
Various churches and groups will
-entertain those in the downtown
area from 10:00 3:00, and vari-
ous games, face painting, pony
rides, toy walk and cake walk will
also take place during the same
time frame along side the banks
of Lake Alice.
The Christmas parade will
begin at 5:00, followed by the
lighting of the tree at 6:00. All
-times are central.

Red Cross Blood
Drive Tuesday
The American Red Cross has
scheduled its annual blood drive
for Port St Joe next Tuesday, De-
cember 13. The blood collection
activities will be held at the First
United Methodist Church on
Monument Avenue according to
Red Cross officials.
The drive will' begin at 1:00
p.m. and continue through 6:00
p.m. on that date.
The drive is intended to raise
the blood stocks for the Port St.
Joe area, especially for the holi-
day season. Blood is furnished to
Gulf County medical facilities
from the American Red Cross


the activity to continue in St. Jo-
seph Bay during the months of
July and August. The season
here remained for this period of
time until the most recent meet-
ing of the commission which had
as one of its Intentions, the clos-
ing of scalloping altogether
throughout Florida.
Actions at the meeting above
had the F.M.C. reneging on their
intentions to the point of leaving
the season as they had previously
declared-July and August They


also set limitations for scalloping
at two gallons of the shellfish. un-
shucked, or ten gallons per boat.
in possession at one time.
Under the present arrange-
ments bay scalloping is allowed
in only St. Joseph Bay and Stein-
hatchee throughout Florida in an
attempt to rejuvenate a declining
population elsewhere. Scallop
fishermen argue that shoreside
development Is more to blame for
the bay scallops' decline than
over-harvesting has done.

Money-Saver
WELL, WELL, WELL, what's going on here? Where was the
News-less Herald when this little fiasco was put over on Gulf
County? They have been so good at keeping us all abreast of the
goings-on over here, informing us all on how we are being cheat-
ed out of our money and taken advantage of.
We have still another road contract in Gulf County; this time
for repairs to flood-wash-outs on the Saul's Creek Road. C. W.
Roberts got that one too! Of course, the County offered the job to
the lowest bidder, but Roberts' was awarded the contract any-
way. We can't understand it. We thought that, where chicanery
of public funds were involved, the HIGH bidder was awarded the
contract.
BUT, LET US TAKE a look at how the latest job panned out.,
It will explain how C. W. Roberts gets all the paving in Gulf
County, where the contract is given to the LOW bidder. When
the bid was read,- publicly, in a County Commission meeting.
there were two bids submitted on the Saul's Creek Road job.
One bid was submitted by Florida Asphalt Paving Company of
Panama City, who offered to do the job for $448,820. C. W. Rob-
erts Contractors said they would do the job for $298,440! This
writer was present at the meeting and can verify these facts!
Who would you have given the job to?
That's who the Gulf County Commission gave it, to, also.
There wasn't any favoritism except what was engendered from a
firm which was willing to save Gulf County $150,380! That's
nearly a half mill of taxes! The Gulf County Commission would
have been crazy to give the contract to anyone else-especially
with their past experience with Roberts' performance record.
THE SAME EXPERIENCE has been realized on other road
work in Gulf County. The experience-and the price-with Rob-
erts has been unbeatable.
The state of Florida has contracted with Roberts to do three
other jobs in Gulf County for the very same reason the. County
has hired them. They're re-surfacing highway 98, east of Port St.
Joe to the Franklin County line. They are to do Fifth Street, in
Port St. Joe, to the end of the four-lane. They have also been
awarded a contract to re-pave Highway. 71, north, to the Indus-
trial Road.
Why?
Because they are good, Christian, honest folks, who:do a
good job at a fair-price-something the News-less Herald appar-
ently Isn't accustomed to dealing with in Bay County.



IsGATT Good?
THE' NATION IS NOW a part of the GATT trade agreement
along with a good part of the rest of the world. The. bad part of
the agreement is that so few of us know what it will-mean to the
average citizen in our nation. It was one of the least discussed
and least publicized of any subject which has come up in many
years.
We hope the GATT agreement is all it has cracked up to be.'
We trust it will be since such a large majority of the House and
Senate approved with such a short discussion period. Surely the
lame ducks in Congress wouldn't satisfy a pique at 'not being re-e
turned to office by passing an agreement which would not be in
the best interests of the nation, simply to pay us back for not re-
electing them to office.
IT IS WITH MORE than a little trepidation that we approach
.the GATT agreement. We would feel much better about the mat-
ter if we had been given more information before it was finally
decided upon. We knew more about NAFTA. We knew more
about the government description of health care. We knew more
about our nation's plan for Haiti. We even knew more about the
latest run-in with Saddam Hussein, even though it developed al-
most overnight.
i Americans wouldn't even buy a new car without first kicking
the tires, at least. Why should they accept GATT, without a
question, until they know a little bit about it.
Maybe the news media has been trying to publicize GATT in
the past several weeks, 'only to have it crowded out by the elec-,
tion news. The only information we saw about GATT was very
skimpy save for the articles by various columnists.
THE ONLY THING we particularly noticed about GATI'-
which sounded an alarm with .us-were the few articles which
told of it being an agreement to let a committee settle any disa-
greements with their decision binding on the nations involved.
We don't particularly like giving up control of our destiny with-
out having some input toward the binding decision.

We're Ready for Christmas Except Shopping and Decorating


PORT ST. JOE'S Christmas
Parade is on the calendar for Sat-
urday afternoon, along with a day
full of activities, according to Mer-
chant's Association general pa-
rade chairman Tonya Nixon. That
will mean the official start of the
Christmas shopping season here
in town, although I suspect it has
already started.
That means a large parade is
in the making for Saturday and a
meaningful ceremony at the town
Christmas tree, complete with
carols and a turning on of the
lights.
I read, the other day where
first lady Hillary Clinton got stuck'
at the top of a large tree and had
a shaky adventure in a lift bucket
before she hit the ground again.
Nothing was broken, however, ex-
cept, maybe, some egot

City's boom truck, and his ride to
the top of the tree gets shaky, he
might have to spend the holidays
aloft, since the operator of the
boom truck wouldn't take the
chance of bringing him down and
losing his job with Christmas just
around the corner.
It might be worth your time
to come to the tree lighting cere-
mony just to see if the Mayor is
going to spend his holiday season
stuck in the tree or not.

CITY CREWS WERE busy
putting up the rest of the City's
decorations last week. The down-


town area should be about as col-
orful as Dolly Parton's coat of.
many colors she sings about.
Speaking of Dolly Parton; she
puts on some fine musical pro-
grams at her theaters in Dolly-
wood at Christmas time. They're
worth seeing.
She makes an 'Old Fashioned
Christmas' come to life at her.
Smokey Mountain theme park.
The City's Public Works
crews are making Christmas
come to life here in Florida, also.
They're concentrating on the en-
trances to the city in their decora-
tion efforts. By the time you read


this, the City will really have that
'Chnsunas is, in the air' look
about it.
There are more decorated
homes every night. The day right
after Thanksgiving, Inoticed one
here and there about the City.
Now, they :are the rule"rather
than the exception.'
* We're even getting into the
Christmas spirit here at The Star.
This morning [Thursday] I tried to
go to the restroom in the back of
the building, right next to the
small warehouse section .we have.
I couldn't get in because the car-
tons of Christmas decorations
had been retrieved from their
storage place in the attic.
Blocking the entrance to the
restroom is something you don't
do around here for very long!

THERE ISN'T ANY small
children at our house anymore,
to make preparations for Christ-
mas really interesting. Small chil-


dren keep you on your toes at
this time of the year. There's one
in our family, by the name of
Austin Horton, and Austin. is
enough for any family to .have.
Even though Austin doesn't
live at our house, you would
think he did every time he comes
over to visit.,
By the time you get to be my
age, I guess the nearest thing to a
child in, the house is an "Austin"
in the family. It's about all one's
system can handle. You know the
type; all energy and curiosity.
Austin will be the reason for
Christmas at our house this year.
His cousins don't seem to mind
that he is now the center of atten-
tion. They all had their turn in
years past and now they help give
Austin his turn.
WE DON'T HAVE our Christ-
mas tree or decorations up at
home, but we're getting ready to
put them up. I
Frenchie has started to.drag


the boxes and cartons of lights,
garland and tinsel out of the at-
tic, from under the stairs and out
of the backs of the closets. Over
the 40-odd nearly 50 .
years we have been married,
Frenchie has collected enough
Christmas decorations to deco-
rate at least three homes for
Christmas. We don't put them all
up every year. As a matter of fact,
we have reached the point where
we leave more decorations in the
boxes than we put up.
Decorating is a busy time. It
takes a lot of spare time at the
time of the year when hardly any-
one has any spare time to spare..
We'll be just like you and every-
body else; I don't know where
we'll get the time to put up our
decorations but somehow they'll
get put up and look pretty good!
After all, it's the Christmas
season isn't it? And who ever
heard of it being Christmas with-
out the decorations commemorat-
ing the season?

I've got a sister-in-law who
could "fill" their needs. I'm think-
- ing about having a picture of San-
ta pulling a Ronco Veg-i-matic
out of his sack tattooed high up
on my left shoulder. The inscrip-
tion would read "Back to the ba-
sics Christmas, 1994."
I'm serious about this thing.
I want to tingle with anticipa-
tion. Remember being in the third
grade the week before the Christ-
mas holidays began? Folks, you
talk about excited! We'd gather
around in the famous Bluebird
reading. circle and find out what
Dick, Jane and Spot got for
Christmas. We made little snow-
balls out of clay and threw them
at LaRenda Bradfleld. We got to-
:gether at recess to lay out our
plans as to what we were going to
do each day we were out of
school. Notice here, we're excited
about reading class, we're excited
about a fake snowball fight with
LaRenda Bradfield, we're excited
about getting out of school -
we're just flat-out beside our-
selves and we haven't even gotten
to decorating the tree, staying up
to catch a glimpse of Santa or
opening the first gift
I want that feeling again.
I remember crawling up on
Santa's lap at J. A. Abernathy's
hardware store and asking for a
Lionel train set. "I want the one
that smokes when you drop the
special stuff down the smoke
stac-.."
"0. K. kid, I gotcha NEXTI"
I didn't even get to tell him
what my little brother wanted. I
was still a little miffed when I ran
into Buddy Wiggleton. "Hey, you
won't believe this, Santa was
down right rude -."
"Santa my hind foot," Buddy
leaned in real close, "He looks
just like Mr. J. A.'s. fat cousin
from Gibson-Wells."
'You mean Santa
Claus is a hoax?" Bud nodded
and I chewed on that for a min-
ute. "Listen, don't tell my parents,
they're a little slow about stuff
"like this I might still get my
train set....."
Nothing could get you down
at Christmas time.
I remember the shock resist-

And riding off the year before on
my very own Western Flyer
wasn't bad. Shoot, I even enjoyed
the Lincoln Logs and the Tinker
Toys.
One Christmas stands out
head and shoulders above all the
rest. And 'it's funny, I 'don't re-

that year. I'd been off to college -
since August! Four and a half
months! It was my first time ever

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, Dec. 8, 1994


Choose the Best Poinsettia for Long Life-


Poinsettias (poin-set-ee-ahs)
and Christmas go together espe-
cially here in Florida. The poin-
settia's bright red bracts and
.,dark green foliage give this plant
Sa festive appearance, which is es-
- pecially appreciated during- the
. holidays.
Poinsettias have become very
popular throughout the country
as symbols of Christmas. As a
Floridian, you have the widest se-
ledction of poinsettia varieties from
which to choose. If you plan to
buy a poinsettia this year or if
you have already bought one,
* you'll want to know what to look
- for, and- how to care for your pur-
,chase after you get it home.
You'll probably hear this
plant called both poinsettia (poin-
- -set-ah) and poinsettia (poin-set-
ee-ah). The second pronunciation
is preferred by most garden ex-


perts. But, don't feel you have to
say "poin-set-ee-ah." If you tell
your nurseryman you want poin-
set-ah," he'll know what you
mean.
When shopping for a poinset-
tia, look for several things. Be
sure the plant has green foliage
almost to the soil line.- A plant
which has lost most of its bottom
leaves is probably getting old. Of
course, factors such as sudden
temperature changes, soil pests,
and insects also can cause leaf
drop. So, a good supply of lower
leaves is a basic key to a healthi-
er, as well as a younger plant.
The showy parts, which most
people call flowers, aren't .flowers
at all. They're special kinds of
leaves, called bracts. These
should be large enough to extend
well beyond the lower green foli-
age, and they should be brightly
colored. The most popular poin-
settia color is red. But, you also
can find numerous shades of
pink, white and every color, com-
bination.
The real poinsettia flowers
are small green and yellow clus-
ters growing in' the center of the
bracts. You should select a plant
with small, green undeveloped
flower parts. If a poinsettia al-
ready has open, yellow flowers, a
good portion of the plant's display
lfe is over, and .the bracts soon
will begin to fade.
Poinsettias are native to the
warmer, humid regions of Mexico.
So, potted poinsettia need spe-
cial care. As house plants, poin-
settias should be located where
they'll enjoy. uniform tempera-
tures of 60 to 75 degrees fahren-
heit during the day, and about 60
degrees at night. They also

should receive bright light, but,
not direct sun. Avoid areas sub-
ject to drafts, sudden tempera-
ture changes, low humidity, and
dim light.
If you have poinsettias in
your landscape, you'll probably
use them as cut flowers, to
brighten your home's holiday de-
cor. To keep the bracts from wilt-
ing, the stem ,ends should be
singed to coagulate the milky sap
and prevent its loss. Also, it helps
to "condition" poinsettias, by

GC Extension
Department
NotAffected
Roy Lee Carter, Gulf County's
Extension Department agent told
The Star this week that President
Bill Clinton's decision to reduce
A.S.C.S. agent corps by approxi-
mately 1,000 agents would not di-
rectly affect Gulf County.
Carter said his office would
see no reduction in force with the
federal cut-back. Carter said,
"Our office works through and is
funded by the University of Flori-
da out of Gainesville and is not
directly affected by A.S.C.S. fund-
ing or activities."
Carter said that most
A.S.C.S. activities such as grants,
crop subsidies, etc. have been
handled out of the Panama City
office in the past. These duties
are now being shifted to Marian-
na and Chipley. Carter said he
saw no serious effects from the
reduction in force in Gulf County,
which is not very heavy Into row
crop farming anyhow.

D.O.T. Cautions
About Snagged
Clothing
Secretary of Transportation
Federico Pena cautioned school
. officials, bus drivers and students
alike that drawstrings, clothing
and backpacks can be snagged
on school bus handrails as chil-
dren exit the bus, and that the
school bus driver may not notice
the potential hazard until it is too
late.
"Four children have died
needlessly since April 1991 after
getting parts of their clothing
.caught in handrails as they got
off their school buses. Thinking
the students were safely off the
bus. the drivers pulled away not
knowing that the children were
tethered to the handrail. The vic-
tins were dragged by the buses
until they fell under the wheels.
We must do all we possibly can to
avoid this type of tragic mishap,"
Secretary Pena said.
Investigations by the depart-
ment's National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA)
led to nine ,school bus manufac-
turers' conducting safety defect
recalls during which they modi-
fled handrails to reduce the risk
to children leaving the buses. Re-
calls were conducted by AmTran/
Ward, Blue Bird, Carpenter,
Coach and Equipment Co., Col-
lins Bus Corporation, Gflig Corpo-
ration, Sturdicorp, Thomas Built
Buses and Van-Con, Inc.
"Manufacturers cannot elimi-
nate 100 percent of the risk with
vehicle modifications," Secretary
Pena said. "Children who carry
backpacks and wear loose-fitting
clothes or clothes with draw--
strings still will run some risk of
snagging themselves as they de-
part." He urged parents and
school administrators to teach
children about the potential liaz-
ard and asked school bus drivers
to be especially vigilant as stu-
dents exit their buses.
School buses remain one of
the safest forms of transportation
in the United States, and most
serious incidents occur as chil-
dren are approaching or leaving
their busses, according to
NHTSA. Abut 23 million children
ride more than 18 million miles
in public school buses each
school day.

will be in Port St. Joe at the Gull
County Courthouse on Monday,

ASC Elections
Rescheduled
This year's election for posi-
tions on the local Agricultural
S'Stabilization and Conservation
(ASC) Committee, which were to
be held In December, are being
rescheduled to accommodate
changes brought on with last
month's enactment of the law to
reorganize the U. S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA).
According to the local ASOr
committee, the change in the
election schedule is nationwide
and. is authorized under regula-
tions issued by USDA. Current
members of ASC committees will
continue in their posts until the
new election is held next fall.
The law, which reorganized
USDA, created a :new agency --
The Farm Service Agency -- which
encompasses all of the commodi- i
ty support and basic conservation
programs of the former Agricultu-
ral Stabilization and Conserva-.
tion Service (ASCS), all of the risk
management programs of the
Federal Crop Insurance Corpora-
tion (FCIC), and the farm lending
activities of the Farmers Home
Administration (FmHA).
Thed new committee system,
when fully implemented, will ex-
ercipe increased responsibilities
in its enlarged role. Rescheduling
the elections on a nationwide ba-
sis avoids confusion which could'"
occur from hastily drawn rules .
and regulations. It will create effm-
clencies by using funds which
would have been spent on this
year's election process to be used
in training committees in per-
forming their added duties.

General Agreement on Tariffs and
Trade (GATI).
As the eighth round of GAIT
negotiations, the Uruguay Round
is considered an unprecedented
agreement In multinational trade.
By lowering tariffs globally by
one-third, this agreement will re-
sult in lower consumer prices and
is expected to produce more than
300,000 new high-wage jobs in
the United States.
In addition, the Uruguay
Round will benefit U. S. farmers
by bringing agriculture under the
purview of GATT for the first
time, and by requiring all mnem-
ber-nations to make substantial
reductions in their agriculture
subsidies. This is especially sig-
nificant for America's farmers
whose products can:now be sold
overseas at competitive prices.
The Uruguay Round also bol-
sters intellectual property protec-
tion for a wide array of goods and
services. Under this new agree-
ment, patents and copyrights for
intellectual property like comput-
er programs, books, films, and,
micro-chip designs are now pro-
tected from global piracy. The
agreement also strengthens the
authority of the U. S. to penalize
any GATr member-nation that at-
tempts to export goods at prices
that are below market costs. .
"Not only will the Uruguay
Round reinforce the U. S. as the
top exporter in d strongest eco-
nomic power in the world, this


agreement provides the U. S. with
the means to defend against un-
fair trade practices of other mem-
ber nations," Peterson said. "Sim-
ply put, the Uruguay Round
places all of the participating na-
tions in a more fair and competi-
tive climate, which is why this


agreement received such great bi-
partisan support --- because
greater competition means the
opening of new foreign markets to
U. S. goods and services, more
jobs for the U. S., and a stronger
U. S. economy.
"Finally, adoption of GAIT


brings with it positive national se-
curity enhancements. With 123
,nations around the world eco-
nomically linked by common
Cooperative principles, these na-
tions will work hard to secure
* world stability and to ensure eco-
nomic well-being."

Family time is hard to find.,
The amount of time parents'
spend withth eir children' has
dropped 40 percent during the
last 25 years. In a national sur-
vey conducted for the coalition for
America's Children, three in five
Americans said they worry that
children are growing, up without

food, and a good education. Here
are some simple ways that fami-"

meals, do chores, watch TV to-
gether. Volunteer as a family, and
talk about your experiences.
*Read together. Create a fam-

together-pay bills while the chil-
dren do their math.
*Put money in its place. De-
cide what is important and what


The telethon benefits the six

&Safe
By Bob Crawford
Commissioner of Agriculture
Decorating trees and homes
with colorful lights and orna-
ments are traditional ways of cel-
ebrating the winter holiday sea-
son., But careless maintenance of
a cut tree or improper use of dec-
orative lighting or candles can
turn a holiday celebration into
tragedy.
If choosing a cut tree, try to
select one that is as fresh as pos-
sible. The needles should be flexi-
ble rather than brittle, and
should adhere to the branches
when shaken., After a tree is se-
lected, cut about an Inch off the
base of the trunk and place it in a
stand with a large water-holding
capacity.
Place the tree in the home
away from heat sources, such as
a fireplace, television or heating
vents. Keep plenty of water in the
stand and check the level several
times a day. If the tree tree is allowed
to dry out it can become a fire
hazard.
, When decorating, consider
the following precautions:'
**Read Instructions carefully
to ensure proper usage of all
lighting decorations.
**Only use cool-burning
lights that have the Underwriters
Laboratory ,UL) seal of approval.
**Check all lighting for loose
connections, broken or cracked
sockets,, and frayed or bare wires.
**Use Indoor lighting only for
indoor purposes. and outdoor
lighting for outdoor purposes.
**Fasten outdoor -lights se--

Port St. Joe basketball coach
Vernon Eppinette said, 'This will
be a great opportunity to play two
good ball clubs in a hostile envi-
ronment. This road experience
should help us grow both Individ-
ually and as a team. In our first
three games I have been pleased
with our intensity, but our con-
sistency is nowhere near where it
needs to be. We must become
more consistent so we can begin
working on our weak areas," he
concluded.

New Alignments


Put Blountstown


Back In District


The Florida High School Ac-
tivities Association recently re-
leased new district alignment for
the state's six classifications in
high school sports. Port St. Joe
High School is still in District Two
AAA, but North Florida Christian
School dropped to Class 2A, while
Blountstown High School moved
to District Two from District One
AAA.
The new alignment will renew
a rivalry that has been on-going
for as long as most people in
these parts can remember, that
being the annual duel between
the Sharks of Port St. Joe and the
Tigers of Blountstown. For the
past few years scheduling prob-
lems had forced an erid to compe-
tition between the two schools
who were forced into separate
districts by the FHSAA four years
ago.


Head football coach and ath-
letic director Fred Priest said he
was glad to see the rivalry re-
newed, noting that the Sharks
had not played Blountstown since
he had become coach at Port St.
Joe High School. "I have heard
much about the competitive spirit
between the two schools in the
past, and it will definitely be nice
to be able to schedule a game lit-
tle closer to home. All four of the
current district foes-North Flori-
da Christian, Florida High, Monti-
cello Jefferson County and Ha-
vana, are located two hours or
more driving time from Port SL
Joe, and to get there from here
you have to pass through Blount-
stown, an hour's drive away.
The new District Two AAA
will be comprised of Port St. Joe,
Blountstown, Havana, Monticello
- Jefferson County, and Florida
High.

KEEPING THE


NATURAL LOOK


If you have a decayed
tooth that needs filling, es-
pecially if it is in the front of
your mouth, your dentist
may fill it with a composite
resin to help keep the natu-
ral look.
Composite resin is a fast
hardening, white filling ma-
terial that has the look of
natural tooth enamel. It can
be bonded or fused directly
to the natural tooth. The
bonding process not only
permits the composite resin
to be held firmly in place, it
makes it more secure than
many of the older types of
filling materials. It has anoth-
er advantage too, because
the color can be blended
more evenly to the natural
tooth.


This relatively new type
of tooth filling can also be
used in other areas to help
maintain the natural ap-
pearance of your teeth. But
its most common use is to fill
front teeth that have be-
come decayed. Its advan-
tage over silver amalgam or
gold fillings, particularly in
this area of the mouth, is ob-
vious. The cosmetic results
are nothing short of amaz-
ing. You'll never be able to
tell that the tooth has beeh
filled.

People; Natural Gas Sa ety
pi -G. a'-.


Natural gas supplies vitally needed energy
to thousands of homes, businesses and indus-
tries in Florida. Energy, whether it be in the form
S of gas, electricity, oil, water, etc., when uncon- -
trolled can be dangerous.
Even though a record of safe operations has
been established over the years by the regulat-
ed gas industry, knowledge of the information
contained in this ad can assist you in recogniz-
ing a potentially hazardous condition and take
appropriate action to safeguard life and property.

Q. What Are Some of the Characteris-
tics of Natural Gas A User Should
Know?
SA. Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composedd mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics:
1. Odorless an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will-
rise into the atmosphere unless trapped.
.3.. It is nontoxic. However, as with any burn-
ing process, incomplete combustion will
form carbon monoxide which is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from 4% to
14% (approximate values by volume, of

company and have them investigate.


Q. What Additional Ways Can You
Detect A Gas Leak?
A. 1'. When the ground is wet, you may. detect'
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through,
puddles of water in a uniform manner.
-2. A larger leak of gas from underground
piping may be able to be seen by sand
blowing around a small hole in the
ground; it may be felt just as you may feel[
ir leaking from a small hole in a tire or
air hose: and if it is a large leak, a noise
can be heard similar to air leaking.
3. A flame at or around appliance piping
other than at the burner indicates leak-
age.

Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg"
Odor Is Detected, Does Than Mearin
That There Is A Natural Gas Leak?,
A. No. But this should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an. indication of a gas leak.


When the Gas Is Burned On A Gas
Range or Furnace?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is flam-
mable and is consumed in the process of
burning. If your equipment is properly adjust-
ed you should not detect the.odor when you
are using your appliances.

,Q. What Can One Do to Reduce the
Possibility of An Accident?
A. First keep the emergency telephone number
of your gas company handy. A'good place to
keep this number is'to write.-it down in the
front of your telephone book along with other
emergency telephone numbers such" as fire,
police, etc.


Other things 'which should be done to im
prove safety as well as conserve energy are'
1. Teach children that they are hot to play.

2. If a strong odor is detected in a building
or other confined space do not operate
electrical switches, light matches or use
an open flame; however, do open win-
dows and doors to ventilate the area
(caution: don't turn on exhaust fans)
leave the buildings and call the gas com-
pany.
3. If a strong odor is detected in a build-

do hnot operate electrical switches, lights
or other devices; do evacuate the build-
ing leaving exit doors open. on .your way

Things Are Getting "Hair-y"

SMajor Court Cases Being

Dismissed by Major Flaw In


JURY DTY
With the mistrial in the British murder case in' Florida and the jury
selection process going on in the 0. J. Simpson affair In California in
mind, many think our criminal Justice system is in trouble. Certainly, It
Is oi trial itself.
:The trouble, in part, is due to the cynical process of Jury selection
that sometimes allows lawyers to put the most emotional,-least capable,
and most prejudiced people on Important cases.
It's called jury stacking, a science practiced throughout the land,
that allows lawyers, through what are called "peremptory challenges",. to,
reject a number of candidates without giving any reason. The Judge can
dismiss jurors for cause.
British reporters and Margaret Jagger, girlfriend of Gary Colley. who
waskilled in the shooting at the I-10 rest stop near Monticello in Septem-
ber, 1993, were outraged at the mistrial caused by a hung Jury which in-
cluded no elderly people and a former school teacher of accused, Billy
Joe Crumltie, 17,
A lone Juror 20-year-old Florida A & M University student LaRhon-
da Jones was the holdout that caused Circuit Judge F. E. Steinmeyer to
declare the mistrial. Crumltie will be tried again and is being held in the
Leori County Jail without ball.
S The British press has pointed out that in England the school teacher
would have been dismissed for cause, the defense, nor the prosecution
would not have had any peremptory challenges, and the lawyers would
not have been able to manipulate the composition of the jury. Perempto-
ry challenges have been eliminated in Great Britain. and now Jury selec-
tion there takes a matter of minutes or hours, not days and weeks or
months. .
In the great majority of cases our system based on a presumption of
innocence until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt before a jury of
your peers has worked. Not perfectly, but humanly well, as probably as
close to justice as you're going to get before you die and face Saint Peter
. at the pearly gates.
The modern trend has been toward more rights for the criminal at
the expense of the victim. This has not been caused by the jury system,
but by the rulings in higher courts based on an activist interpretation of
the constitution after the jury verdict Is obtained.
Every time I drive through Bainbridge, Georgia, and see the freeway
sign pointing to the Spring Creek exit ramp, I curse the so-called justices
of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. It was in that
small community on the shores of Lake Seminole just a few miles from
Tallahassee that ex-Baltimore prison escapees wiped out the Ned Alday
family in brutal murders in the 1970's. To this day not one of them has
been executed because judges in $400 suits sitting in air-conditioned of-
fices in Atlanta and Washington, D. C. find some flaw in how they were
tried in Seminole County. There are literally thousands of similar cases
in Florida and throughout the country.
No doubt elimination of the freebie juror challenges without cause
would help, especially in the big money cases and in the high-profile ra-
cial cases such as 0. J. Simpson charged with the murder of his ex-wife.
But Is won't help with those judges with lifetime appointments.
Jury manipulation is a player in the big money damage suits also.
The last few years of my reporting career were spent in Quincy, a small
town west of Tallahassee, where law firms from everywhere always know
that to win they had better hire a local Quincy attorney who know how to
pick a local jury.
I can recall several verdicts which flew in the face of the facts in the
case, but overall the jury system has served our country well. I expect
there will be a fair verdict in the British tourist murder case on a retrial
but at tremendous expense to the small county which can't afford IL The
death penalty has already been ruled out I don't have the same expecta-
tions for the Simpson case. It may be impossible to convict a wealthy,
black football hero of murder in a community like Los Angeles under the
present jury system we have in this country. We will see.
But let's not throw the jury system out just yet. No question it's more
-just that the political- systen"we've got up here. in tlih Tallahassee-blIt-
way. I refer to Gov. Lawton Chiles who suspended Gulf County Sheriff Al

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper


Harrison,in June before any official charges were made in an ongoing sex
,, harassment investigation .or In the death of Linda Sue Richter. a clerk in
-his office found dead in a ditch north of Port St. Joe.
The suspension effectively ended Harrison's career by government
decree without a trial by a jury of his peers. The state found there was
not sufficient evidence to bring charges. So it called for a federal investi-
gation into possible civil rights violations, whatever the heck that is. It's
going on six months now. State officials said Friday a federal grand jury
at Pensacola is now looking into the case. Hey. Harrison's worst mistake
could have been switching from a Democrat to a Republican awhile back.

Capitol News Round-Up
TALLAHASSEE (WNS) Republican senators say they may challenge
Florida Corrections Chief Harry Singletary at confirmation hearings in
January for firing Palatka Prison Supt. Richard Dugger after the Nov. 8
election.
Other Interesting possibilities inside the Tallahassee beltway are for-
mer Secretary of State Jim Smith to become Florida State University's
athletic director and former House Speaker T. K. Wetherell as president
of Tallahassee Community College.
Republican Senator Fred Dudley. Cape Coral, and Charlie Crist, St.
Petersburg. said they may question Singletary's ability to be corrections,
chief on grounds not enough people are being kept locked up and he may
have acted Illegally In firing Richard Dugger. Singletary accused Dugger,
a former Republican corrections chief, of bullying and threatening em-
ployees into donating money to Cov. Lawton Chiles' unsuccessful Repub-
lican opponent Jeb Bush. Dugger denied the charge.
Dudley said Singletary's confirmation could be in jeopardy unless he
can satisfactorily explain the department's policy on political activities
during a campaign. He also said he'd Investigate accusations that Single-
tary has covered up crimes committed within the department.
Chiles has directed the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to
look into Dudley's accusation to see "whether there is something there or
whether it is just politics."
HRS Secretary Jim Towey fired four top aides in a shake-up in the
biggest state agency before he goes to the Senate for confirmation. He is
also expected to come under close scrutiny.
They are: Dr. Michael Cupull, assistant secretary for children' medi-
cal services, salary $130,138; Tom Weinberg, liason between HRS and
users of the Florida computer system, $77,887; Sandi Harris, chief of
child care services, $64,656; and Carole Pettijohn, administrative sup-
port information systems director, $62,340.
Republican Smith who would have qualified for a top job in a Bush
administration because of his withdrawal from the governor's race said
he has talked to FSU President Sandy D'Alemberte about the athletic di-
rector's post once occupied by Bob Goin who resigned under fire over a
free roof put on his house by a contractor on the FSU stadium center.


A former attorney general as well as secretary of state, Smith said
they talked about the AD post and a teaching position. "My skills really
are in administration and motivating people, "Smith said.
Wetherell, another distinguished FSU grad, is on the final list of five
candidates for the Tallahassee Community College presidency. As House
speaker, he steered millions of dollars to FSU and is given an outside
chance for the TCC post because of his legislative experience. '
State Elections Supervisor Dot Joyce has also been notified that she
will be replaced when newly elected Secretary of State Sandra Mortham
takes over in January.
SHARING POWER: Senate President Jim Scott, R-Fort Lauderdale,
put a GOP majority on every condition except one last week but named
some Democratic chairmen, including Sen. Charles Williams, Tallahas-
see, over the Agriculture Committee. He dropped four committees.
House Speaker Rudy Wallace. D-St. Petersburg, kept all the chair-
manships Democratic. but gave Jobs to almost every member of both par-
ties by adding four new committees-and 20 new sub-committees. He alsp
named a Republican vice-chairman to every committee except two. .
The unusual sharing of power came after Republicans won a 21-19
majority in the Senate and narrowed the House split to 63 Democrats
and 57 Republicans.
Sen. Pat Thomas. D-Quincy. who was Senate President before the
election, was named to three committees but not as chairman of any. He
said he know he would not get a major post in the first Republican domi-
nated Senate since Reconstruction days and had not asked for one.
Rep. Allen Boyd, D-Monticello, got the powerful daily calendar com-
mittee chairmanship. Others named chairmen were Rep. Robert Tram-
mel. D-Marianna, Judiciary Committee. Rep. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee,
Governmental Operations, and Kelley Smith, D-Palatka, Transportation.
TEACHER BEATER: Fourteen-year-old Dirk Anderson was sen-
tenced to three years in prison for savagely beating Tallahassee Cobb
Middle School teacher Judith Birtman on the last day of school in June.
He was urged on by one classmate who yelled, "hit her, hit her!" The case
helped the Florida Cabinet to adopt a Zero Tolerance policy on violence in
public schools.
Anderson had a long juvenile record. He was charged with two felo-
nies in neighboring Wakulla County after he beat the teacher mercilessly.
As could be expected, the daily press, Anderson and his grandmother
wanted the usual slap on the wrist punishmenL Makes you want to
smirk. Huh?

Annual Report Coming
The Annual School Report (based on 1993-94 school year sta-
tistics) is due to be sent home to parents next Thursday. December
15. Because of the size of this report, It will have to be given to stu-
dents to deliver home. Please insist that your student hand-deliver
your copy, and then set aside some time to read through It.'A sum-
mary page or pages will be included at the local school level, ex-
plaining some Items or areas that may have been left out or had in-
correct data entered. As always, a call to the high school might help
to clear up any questions you might have.
Christmas holidays begin at noon Wednesday, December 21 -
that's also when the first semester ends. Please encourage your stu-
dent(s) to. finish strongly. Afterwards, they can rest until Tuesday,
'January 10. Teachers return to work on the 9th of January, one
day ahead of students.
Basketball is rolling along, with the boys' and girls' teams al-
ready having played several games, with plenty more to go. The
boys' varsity team has been weakened some by key injuries, but
you'll still see competitive basketball if you can locate a schedule.
Check the sign on Highway 71 daily it's usually up to date on
game times.
The Christmas parade in Wewa is December-17. This is a popu-
lar event that is well attended by not only local folks, but many out
,of towner's as well. Plan on joining in on a whole day's activities
centered around the old courthouse.
Hunting is a popular (sometimes all consuming) past-time in
Wewahitchka. Please caution your students to constantly be on
guard it seems each year hunting accidents are on the rise, most
are due to carelessness on the part of one party or the other. Some-
times you don't get to walk away from these accidents.
Parents I'm sure you're aware that there is a lot of activity'
among some students involving alcohol. Some don't consider con-
suming beer as "drinking," but the price some might pay in legal
'problems or accidents while driving, etc., is exactly the same. One
.or two beers sound so innocent, but often the effect on young peo-.
ple can be devastating. Just being with someone else who is drink-
'ing can lead to these same results. Appeal to your'student's good
sense to avoid these situations.

beach and pick up interesting
things for ten minutes. So ,we
were offl Everybody picked up
one shell at least. Other people
picked up trash that seemed very
grotesque. Eddie found a piece
that went to a scuba mask. Mrs.
Pallas Gandy found a dead bird

for these parts in the year. Antho-
ny found wood that used to have
a. ship's name .on ILt. Then we.
played a habitat game. ,:
Then we went with Erik and
he took us to the oyster bar. The
oyster bar was very muddy and
wet. The outsides of the oyster is
gross and green. Animals live out-
side and in between each oyster,
such as stone crabs, muscles and
worms.
The stone crab Is very unique
in that It can crack a little oyster
open and eat them for food. The
way they crack It Is with their
snappers. They must be awfully
strong for them to crack oyster
shells.
: Another organism is the mus-
sel. It lives on the oyster with a
,sticky substance that holds it on
the oyster. I don't know what it
eats, but it has to eat tiny stuff.
There are lots of other organisms,
such as worms and barnacles.
St. George Island is a great
educational place. It Is filled with
a lot of great stuff. The 'class
learned a new stage in life and a
great deal on oysters and other
new organisms. Erik showed Us
the inside of an oyster and
showed us all its parts. Pallas

Reduce Your Home Heating System Risks

Have Your System Inspected and Install A Carbon Monoxide Detector
-H.e ....tm Ispete an Ins tll, Cab, onoideetct*


By: Bob Crawford, Commission-
er of Agriculture
Cooler weather is here -- and
so are the risks that can go with
keeping our homes warm. Ac-
cording- to National Fire Protec-
tion Association statistics, more
that a third of home fire deaths in
the United ,States occur during
the winter months of December,
January" and February. Home
heating equipment is the No. 1
cause of home fires, accounting
for, two of every five home fires
during; these months. With proper
installation, service .and use of
heating, equipment, most of these
fires could be .prevented,.
To operate properly, fuel-
burning home heating equipment
must have an air supply. Lacking
this supply, the equipment may
produce carbon monoxide (CO),
an invisible, silent killer that
takes an estimated 900 lives each
year-in the United States. CO is
produced when fuels are iricom-
pletely burned, so any heater that
bums fuel Is a potential source of
carbon: monoxide. For this rea-
son, fuel-bumrningheaters should


be vented to the outside. When
an unvented fuel-burning space
heater is in use, a window should
be.opened slightly-to provide ade-
quate ventilation. Unvented heat-
ers should be turned off at night.
.The symptoms of CO poison-
ing mimic those of the flu. At low
levels, it can cause headaches,
nausea and drowsiness: at higher
levels, vomiting, loss of con-
sciousness and death. The death
earlier this year of tennis star Vi-
tas Gerulaitus has been attribut-
ed to CO poisoning caused by a
faulty home heating system.
Consumers are advised to
have their home heating system -
including fireplaces and .chim-
neys -- inspected regularly by a
qualified technician. In addition,
at least one carbon monoxide de-
tector that meets the, require-
ments of Underwriters Laborato-
ries' standard 2034 should be
Installed in the hall outside the
bedrooms. The detector, will
sound an alarm before the CO
level in the home becomes. haz-'

Several NJROTC members are'
shown resting on the steps of the
,, John F. Kennedy Museum in the
Book Depository building in Dallas.
Gulf Cadets
Tour Dallas
On November 14. 48 Gulf
County NJROTC cadets and five
chaperones boarded a U. S. Navy,
C-9 passenger plane at Tyndall
Air Force Base and headed to
Dallas, Texas with a short stop In
New Orleans. The group arrived
in Dallas Naval Air Station at
11:30 p.m. in the pouring rain
and were housed In the B.E.Q.
Quarters at Naval Air Station,
Dallas.
During the group's stay, they
toured the Lockheed Aircraft
Plant at Fort Worth, and were
shown the complete assembly of
the F-16 fighter' The assembly
line is in a building 1 1/4 miles
long.
Also visited were the Fort,
Worth Stockyards, John F. Ken-
nedy Museum in the Book Depos-
itory Building, American Airlines
Museum and Ripley's Believe It
Or Not Museum.
The group visited the huge
Galleria Mall and tried their hand
at ice skating. Chester Nimitz
High.School In_ Irving, Texas, had.
their NJROTC Unit host the local

oupn Thursday night, Novem-
bet 17th, the group boarded a'
Navy C-9 and returned to Pana-
ma City Airport.


Col. Gardner Is.
Squadron Cmdr.
What is the difference be-
tween a, rated officer and a non-
rated officer in the Air Force?
Only pilots are classified as rated
officers. All others are non-rated.


The above explanation is nec-
essary to emphasize the out-
standing singular achievement of
LL Colonel Jon A. Gardner, son
of. Evelyn and Lewis Gardner of
Mexico Beach. Jon's wife, Pamela,
and daughter, Julie Ann, wait for
him at their home in San Anto-
nio, Texas.,
Colonel' Gardner, a, non-rated
officer stationed at Kunsan Air
Force Base. Korea, was installed
as Operations Support Squadron
Commander of a F-16 Squadron
In a change of command ceremo-
ny on November 14. His achieve-
ment is especially : noteworthy
since Air Force history indicated
this is the first time a non-rated
officer has commanded a flying
squadron since the Army Air
Corps was re-designated as the
United States Air Force in Novem-
ber, 1947. Jon has long been
flight qualified and holds Senior
Flight Observer wings. He will be
flying in that position on the F-16
fighter.

son, often resulting in accidental
poisoning exposures. Parents
should recognize these potential
dangers and take the necessary
precautions to avoid unfortunate
incidents," recommends Dr. Jay
L. Schauben, F.P.I.C. Jackson-
ville Director.
Common holiday poisoning
hazards are listed below. Anyone
who suspects a poisoning expo-
,sure should immediately call the
Poison Center at 1-800-282-
3171, statewide..
DECORATIONS. "Bubble
Lights" containing methylene
chloride can be poisonous If a
child drinks the fluid from even
one light (even if it is labeled non-
toxic). Snow sprays also may be
harmful if the aerosol propellants
are used improperly.
Many decorations, while not
, considered poisonous, are still a
threat to your child's safety:
Christmas tree needles, for exam-
ple, may cause painful cuts in the
mouth and throat if swallowed:
angel hair (made from finely spun
glass) and ornament hangers may
cause cuts on Irritation: Christ-
mas tree ornaments. icicles and
tinsel may block the airway or
cause choking.
PLANTS: Mistletoe, poinset-
tia, Christmas berry Christmas
rose, holly, bayberry and Jerusa-
lem cherry are all commonly used
for decorations during the holl-
days. Like many plants, all of
these are considered potentially
poisonous and should be kept
out of the reach of children.
Symptoms for plant poisoning
can range from rashes to nausea,
vomiting and diarrhea.
FOOD POISONING: Holiday
celebrations often include food,
and food poisoning can be a po-
tential threat during the holidays.
Food poisoning is caused by eat-
ing food contaminated with one
or several bacteria. It Is most of-
ten associated with meat, fish or
dairy products that have been al-
lowed to thaw improperly or have
been stored improperly, that have
come in contact with dirty work
utensils or work areas, or with
unwashed hands. Symptoms,
which are usually limited to vom-
iting and/or diarrhea, generally
occur within six to eight hours-
but may be delayed. No special
treatment is required, and symp-
toms are usually gone within 12
to 24 hours.
ALCOHOL: Alcohol poisoning
is a common risk for children
,during the holiday season. Dur-
ing parties where alcohol is
served, parents must take care to
remove all empty and partially
empty cups as soon as possible.
Make sure that alcohol is stored
in a locked cabinet out of reach
and sight of children. Since chil-
dren Imitate adults, they may
drink the beverages- they see
adults drinking. Due to their

smaller size, children become
"drunk" much more quickly than
adults, so even very small
amounts of alcohol can be dan-
gerous to children. Symptoms will
resemble "drunkenness" and may
include difficulty breathing, ex-
treme drowsiness, difficulty walk-*
ing, nausea and vomiting. Sei-
zures may occur in some cases.
Results of alcohol poisoning may
'be life-threatening, including hy-
poglycemia (low blood sugar) and
blocked airways,-
Other potential sources of al-
cohol poisoning include mouth-
wash, cologne, perfume. after-
shave lotion, rubbing alcohol and
.cough/cold medications.
CARBON MONOXIDE: A col-
orless, odorless gas, carbon mon-
oxide may be produced by vehicle
exhaust leaks, improperly work-
ing furnaces, gas-fueled hot Water
heaters or wood stoves, or by
burning charcoal indoors. It also
can be produced by attempting to
heat a home with a gas stove or-
oven. This gas can produce symp-
toms which resemble the flu, in-
cluding headache, nausea, sleepi-
ness and vomiting.
OTHER HOLIDAY POISON-
ING HAZARDS: Artificial tree
scents, tree preservatives, win-
dow "snow" spray, gift,wrap, fire-
place colors, hobby glues, batter-
ies/button batteries, cigars and
- cigarettes. .

Save Money by


RefinancingLoan


Some 100,000, veterans will
save almost $1.5 billion over the
,next 10 ,years because they re-
sponded to a Department of Vete-
rans Affairs' (VA) effort to inform
them of the benefits of refinanc-
ing their existing VA-guaranteed
home loans.
"VA's campaign earlier this
year to reach veterans still hold-
ing mortgages with high interest
rates has been a tremendous suc-
cess and will have resounding ef-
fects for years to come." said VA
Secretary Jesse Brown. "The ini-
tiative has both a powerful eco-
nomic impact on individual vete-
rans and on the U.S. economy in
terms of the increased disposable
income for veterans and their
families."
VA's Interest Rate Reduction
Refinancing Loan (IRRRL) pro-,
gram allows a veteran with an
outstanding VA-guaranteed loan
to obtain at little or no cost a new'
loan at a lower interest rate by
using the same entitlement the


veteran previously used to buy
the home. -
The department sent letters
to some 1.6 million veterans with
mortgages ranging from 8.5 to,
17.5 percent, explaining. Its
streamlined program. The aver-
age monthly saving for the
100;000 veterans who converted
their loans is $123, or $14,760
over an average loan life of 10
years. The total savings in pay-
ments for these veterans for the
10-year period Is nearly $1.5 bil-.
lion. i
Veterans interested in refl-
nancing their loan should contact
a lender. Veteran homeowners
who have difficulty locating a
lender who oilers VA-guaranteed
loans should call VA 1-800-827-
1000 for additional informatJon,
including a list of lenders who of-
fer IRRRL's and those that do not
require an appraisal or credit
check for these loans.
