PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, ---- J~LaL


Veteran School Board Member Quits Pos.

James Hanlon (Dist. 3) Steps Down After Stormy Career; Cites Health As Reason'


James Hanlon, School Board member from
District Three, brought his often stormy career
as a board member to a close this week when
he announced his resignation after 10 years of
representing his district on the board.
Hanlon, who campaigned as 'The Runner",
listed himself as a man of action on his cam-
paign literature and lived up to his slogan dur-
ing a tumultuous 10 years. A resident of St.
Joe Beach, Hanlon was elected to the board for
another four year term in 1992 and still had a
year and 10 months yet to serve in his current
term.
In his letter to Board Chairperson Charlotte
Pierce he wrote, "It is with deep regret that I
ask the board to accept my resignation as a
member of the Gulf County School Board, effec-
. tive January 31, 1995.


CITES HEALTH AS REASON
"My condition has deteriorated to the point
that I no longer feel that I can effectively and ef-
ficiently represent the people of Gulf County as
a member of the board. I have enjoyed a long
and successful tenure with the Board and it is
with deep regret that I make this decision," said
Hanlon.
Hanlon has been treated for several years
for a physical condition he says was brought
about by a chemical Imbalance he has con-
tracted from his job as a chemist. In making
his decision known to The Star concerning his
resignation Hanlon said his doctors advised
him to step down from his public position. Cit-
, ng a worsening physical condition he said, "I
feel I should take my doctor's advice in this
matter. After all, that's what you pay them for;
to advise you in health matters."


The Board member said he had enjoyed his
association with the Gulf County School Board
and said, "I didn't get done all I had hoped to.
but my prayers are with the Board members as
they attempt to provide a quality school system
for our children."
10 YEARS ON BOARD
Hanlon was first elected in November of
1984 and will announce his retirement: to the
full School Board at their next meeting.sched-,
uled for February 7.
He will be replaced by Governor Lawton
Chiles when his decision Is forwarded on to
him in Tallahassee. Nobody knows when that
appointment will be made but it will probably
be within the next month or two. The appointee
will serve Hanlon's unexpired term and then
will face election if he/she chooses to serve a
full term.

ity: A Stink in the Air


Mile-Long Walking Track Being Considered for Park


The City Commission took a
step back to "smell the garbage"
as they met in their regular ses-
sion Tuesday evening, pondering
the stink in the air being generat-
ed by the citizens of Port St. Joe
over the new three bag recycling
program recently enacted by the
city. The Commissioners were
unanimous as they echoed com-
plaints from their constituents'
that the three bag system of gar-
bage collection was confusing and
required too much space to im-
plement.
Laura Adams approached the
board wanting to know "w'Vhyot-
ed for recycling", pointing 't .
that surrounding communities
4_dn'tbhaye to separate their gar-
a--ge and, as she understood,
paid less for garbage collection
service than city residents.
Mayor Frank Pate reasoned
to Adams noting that the board
was aware of the problems sur-
rounding the three bag collection
system and that he and Public
Works Superintendent Frank
Healy had met In efforts to come
up with a simplified solution to
the confusion that existed. "We
feel the easiest solution to the
problem Is to return to a two bag
collection and recycling system."
Pate said.
Under the revised system the
green bags will be used to discard
wet, messy or odorous garbage
such as food scraps, food wrap-
pers and boxes, diapers, etc.
While the blue or orange bags
should contain clean recyclables
such as paper bags, magazines,
cardboard, newspapers, etc. Hea-
.ly further pointed out that the
city will furnish free garbage bags
that can be picked up at the city's
warehouse on 10th Street and
that residents can call 229-8247
if they have any questions or
need any clarification concerning
the system.
Examples of types of garbage
to go in each are: ,
Green Bag-wet / messy /
odorous: fruit, vegetables, meat.
fish, chicken, bones, saran wrap,
aluminum foil, frozen food boxes.
take-out food boxes, plastic food
bags, diapers, used cooking oil,
styrofoam items, grease such as
bacon, tubes such' as toothpaste,
coffee or tea bags.

Bridge Detour
Workers of a subcontractor for C. W.
Roberts Construction Company are near-
ing completion of a temporary bridge to
serve as a temporary detour while a new
bridge is being built across Depot Creek
on Highway 98, east of Port .St. Joe. When
the bridge is completed, Roberts' firm will
begin re-suffacing Highway 98 eastward to


o'- -, .

the Gulf/Franklin county line. The bridge
spans Depot Creek, near Odena eight
miles east of. Port St. Joe. The Highway
98 project is Just one of several re-
surfacing jobs scheduled by the state De-
partment of Transportation in the vicinity
during the next year. Highway 98 re-,
surfacing is winding down inside the City
and another paving operation is scheduled
for Highway 71 after the Highway 98 job
is completed, according to the DOT.


stCourt Protest of Netan by Area Shrimp Industry Men


Three area people working in
the shrimping industry have
tossed a gauntlet of the first chal-
lenge of Florida's new constitu-
tional amendment ban and regu-
lation of fishing nets in this area.
Pat Floyd, Port St. Joe attorney,
told the Rotary Club Thursday of
a suit he, representing a shrim-
per, ,a seafood dealer and a net
manufacturer have challenged
the Marine Fisheries Commission
in their attempt to interpret the
language of the amendment.
He said shrimpers want to
use a net which by their measure
comes to 15 feet and which they
.say falls within the allowable size.
The fishermen are measuring the
net with the mesh open and not
(n the stretched out working posi-
tion.


USE DIFFERENT YARDSTICK
The Marine Fisheries Com-
mission maintains that a nedt
comes to 25 feet when stretched
out and measured by methods
the agency regards as the proper
way to measure.
Floyd said, "Fishing nets have
historically been measured with
the mesh open and shrimp nets
cannot be measured unless they
are taken apart and laid down
flat. The Marine Fisheries Com-
mission, we feel is over stepping
their bounds in trying to dictate
what the constitutional amend-
ment says. We have decided to
challenge that method of meas-
urement and interpretation by
the Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion."


The attorney said, 'We're ask-
ing that the court define which
nets can be used for shrimping
and how they are measured for
regulation. We've asked for a de-
claratory decree stating that this
particular net is within the re-
quirements of the constitutional
amendment and that the method
of measure is an open mesh-
that is that they should measure
an open mesh rather than pulling
it tight.
The MFC has gone to the At-
torney General's office with their
interpretation of the type net to
be used by shrimpers. Shrimpers
have said that they could get by
with the 15 foot net (which opens
to a 25 foot net when stretched).
in their shrimping operations.


They are now pulling two 25 foot
nets behind their boats. Floyd
said they could use the smaller
net and pull more often and make
the operation economically feasi-
ble.
SUIT FILED
The suit according to Floyd
has been filed in the names of
Franklin County resident Bruce
Millender, a wholesale dealer;
Wakulla County resident Ronald
Crum, who wants to help manu-
facture the nets; and Franklin
County resident Timmy McClain,
a commercial shrimper.
Floyd said industry represen-
tatives spoke with MFC members
previously and had asked the
Commission to approve the nets


as proposed by the trio. There
was a request for the MFC to ac-
knowledge that this type net of
this size was within the require-
ments of the constitutional
amendment and the MFC wanted
to say no and construed the lan-
guage of the amendment differ-
ently. The suit of the three is to
prevent the MFC from making
regulations without the backing*
of government officials.
VARIOUS AGENCIES NAMED
The suit named the State of
Florida, the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Florida Ma-
rine Patrol and the Florida Ma-
rine Fisheries Commission as co-
defendants. it would pinpoint the
responsibility for interpreting the
amendment and accurately ap-


plying this regulations to the fish-
irig industry. Plaintiff Crum devel-
oped a new net following the
passage of the net ban amend-
ment in November's elections and
he 'and other plaintiffs intend to
use it in Florida waters. As the
lawsuit explains, "However in or-
der not to expend monies unnec-
essarily and prepare. a' certain
type of gear that may be chal-
lenged by the MFC as not being
proper or lawful, the plaintiffs de-
sire to have a declaratory judge-
ment entered by the court.
Floyd said other legal chal-
lenges to the amendment are be-
ing prepared by commercial fish-
ermen but that this one was the
only one filed thus far strictly re-
lating to shrimping.

Regulations

FOR YEARS JIMMY McNeill, IE! M &t
Corripany has been belly-aching abof government controls sti-
fling his business and serving to put him out of business, rather
than protect him, his product, or his customers.
Everybody in business has' commiserated with him. Not only
does government smother small business with regulations, limi-
tations and special bookkeeping, but there are several inspectors
to do the same regulation activities, when it should be the other
way around; one inspector to do several of the small, mundane
tasks.; Not only are the-inspectors literally tripping over each oth-
er, but each has a different set of rules to enforce about a single Ever
operation. ill co
A good example is the oyster business coming out of Apa- stupend
lachicola Bay and Indian Lagoon. Their inspections have become son's in
so often and regular, and their requirements so stringent, that need to t

Now,
ARE THE REGULATIONS doing any good'? Let's take a look. about v
The most recent closure of Apalachicola Bay to the taking of oys- there wa
ters is a good case in point. The Bay has been closed for a while,
at this writing, because some people got sick over around Jack-
sonville- after they ate oysters which carried a tag identifying
them as having originated in Apalachicola.
The tag doesn't say how the oysters were treated or handled
after they left the dealer at Apalachicola. The tag doesn't say
how they were handled during the preparation for consumption.
The tag. doesn't speak for the remainder of the food or drink in-
gested during the meal. The tag doesn't even speak for the con-
dition of the dishes or utensils used to prepare and serve the
succulent bivalves nor does it speak to the quantity of oys-
ters each consumed.
Apalachicola, and their world-famous product gets the blame
in spite 6f all these other variables and all the while, tests on the
water quality of the Bay show there is no contaminaUon. Still,
state regulations demand it be shut down. Can you rationally
explain the reasoning behind such a rule, other than it performs
like a typical'government regulation which seems more attuned
to giving a few inspectors a job than It does in providing the pub-
lie any sort of effective protection from harm.



We Wish Him Well
ANOTHER PIECE OF EVIDENCE of evidence related to the
same subject has to do with what a person constructing what he
wants, in a manner he desires, on property he has worked and
paid for and holds the deed for. You can't do that, you know.
Governor Lawton "He-Coon" Chiles found that out, through per-
sonal experience. It wasn't like he hadn't been informed about
the condition of the plethora of regulations which stalk every
property owner in the state of Florida. Now it has struck the
Governor of the state. personally!
.And, heldoesn't like it, either!
TheGpoQ'e.rnor had ambitions of building what he termed a
.cook shock, in the middle of 200 acres of woodlands he has ac-
'quired-Plans he had for the cook shack i oild result in aistruic'-
ture which would fit his desires and needs to a 'T". and wouldn't
harm his nearest neighbors. one iota.
YOU CAN'T BUILD an $18,000 cook shack in the state of
Florida! Although, to this writer, $18.000 for a cook shack would
build a pretty elaborate structure to be used for that purpose.
A cook shack in Florida, built out in the woods, to be used
for barbecues, fish fries and the like, will cost you $64.000, the
Governor found out. If it's built at all, it must be built according
to state regulations, which require more cook shack than Gov-
emor Chiles wanted on his piece of property or, he thought
it was his. It must belong to the state of Florida, instead.
THE GOVERNOR GOT A piece of the bitter-cake the rest of
we peons in the state of Florida are having to choke down every
day. We'have no recourse except to gripe, grumble, object, ap-
peal, vote the rascals out and try some new representatives in
the state house, usually to no avail.
Governor Chiles was so.indignant about this threat to his
freedom of ownership of property, that he immediately gave Lieu-
tenant-Governor Buddy McKay instructions to do away with
50% of the state's thousands of regulations.
They say he hasn't enough time left in office to even examine
all the regulations, but he has started the job. I have never been
a particularly gung-ho supporter of Lawtop Chiles, but in this
endeavor we wish him well!

"SMUTTY"' SLEEPS


FOR


ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


most of the day in a box behind
'the counter, on a bed of Freddie
Harrison's rental shop rags, until
someone comes in or it's time to
eat. Then it's scratch,' Jump,
whine and yap! yap! yap!, to get,
out of the box and attract atten-
tion, doing' the usual cute puppy
tricks.
The girls in the front office
cuddle, coo, and talk baby talk to
"Smutty" while snuggling her up
close and jiggling her.
She eats that up.
Put her down and ignore her
and she lets you know just how


much she likes all the attention.
But, not to worry! She doesn't
get put down very often!
Just to let you know how
much she; enjoys the attention,
she hasn't had an accident on
anyone holding her, yet! The little
tyke is just two months old,
which makes her prone to sprin-
kle someone's lap.

IT'S STRANGE HOW babies-
-and puppies-know when they
are in charge. You take "Smud-
gie"; all she has to do is whine a
little and she gets picked up. She
licks you in the ear or in the face


and those big adult people melt.
She has no trouble at all in
getting someone to pay attention
to her wants. She'll roll over on
her back and put her little legs
up in the air and draw ooh's and
ohhhh's and "isn't that the cutest
thing?" by kicking and wriggling.
The other day a lady came in
to see about her printing order in
the middle of the afternoon and,
stayed until closing time, playing
with the, puppy.
If someone comes in the of-
fice, and brings their children
with them, there's no completing.
their business in a few minutes.
There's something about that lit-
tle black ball of fur which attracts
people. People just have .to linger
for a while to hold her for a while,'
at least.,

THEN, WHEN WE GET her
home, she is just exhausted by
all the attention. She stretches
out in the edge of my big, black
leather chair and re-rharges by


sleeping for about an hour while I
watch the evening news.
Then, after supper, it's play
time!
It's time to pull at sox, shoe
strings, nip ankles if you happen.
to be walking about the house.
Giving an old newspaper a vigor-
ous shake is on the agenda for
about 10 minutes or so. A furious
yapping session is on tap for the
other poodle, Rachel. Of course,
Rachel is 12 years old so her ad-
vanced years and 'spreading cata-
racts aren't amenable to doggie
antics, so she just ignores the
yapping, jumping and nipping.
Finding my sox in the morn-
ing is an adventure. Usually, they
'are deposited somewhere between
the kitchen and the bedroom.
Eating breakfast is an exercise in
trying to keep my feet from being
chewed on and the strings in my
shoes from behng shaken loose
and pulled out.
If I'm sitting in my chair after
supper, watching 'Wheel of For-


tune", it's a constant battle keep-
.ing the puppy off my shoulders,
cleaning out my ear and licking
my neck.

FRENCHIE BRAGGED THE
other morning about how well be-
haved the puppy was. "She hasn't
messed up anywhere in the
house, even once!" she bragged.
We were in the bedroom getting
ready for the day when she did
her bragging. She had just come
in from taking "Smudgy" for her
morning training walk where she
deposited something for some-
body to step in, outside:
"Smudgy" immediately depos-
ited something for someone to
step in right in the middle of the
bedroom rug!
If I had done that .....
-Well, she scooped up that lit-
tle miniature dog, shouted "bad
doggie" and whisked her outside.
She is a cute little dog with
winning ways but she isn't
quite house-broken yet.

We over use the words best,
finest, greatest: but I tell you
what-if Willie and Shirley ever
invite you up to Nicholson's,
you'd be a fool not to take'em up
on it-even _f you have to pay.
Cathy (no doggie bag for us,
not now-not ever) was just fin-
ishing up my steak and ordering
the coconut cream pie when Wil-
lard and Paul strolled over. We
complimented them on the meal
and the service.
"Cookie works in the Attorney
General's office. She comes over
and helps us in the evenings."
Cookie sat the pie and straw-
berry shortcake down. 'This is
my sane job."
We talked about some of the
antiques they had hanging on the
walls. Now. I pride myself on be-
Ing old. And I know a thing or two
about antiques, but Nicholson's
Farmhouse has things hanging
on the wall that go back, way
back before my day. I wish they
had moving tables so you could
eat and browse at the same time.
Cathy wanted to meet the
cooks. We were ushered into the

much too busy for more than a

WALK PARK BEING
CONSIDERED
Comm. Charles Tharpe pro-
posed the city look at the possib-
lity of constructing a walking park
on the city's park property.
Tharpe said he had discussed the
project with County Commission-
er Warren Yeager (present at the
meeting) who also supported the
walk park. Yeager acknowledged
he would work with the county
and help as much as possible.
The site proposed by Tharpe
for the project's location is the
area across the drainage ditch
from the city's nine-hole golf
course between Marvin and
Woodward Avenues. The cityV
owns the land on the south side
of the drainage ditch throughout
that section of town and could
construct a walking path more

the owner and he or she always

It's probably the only City in the
country in this good of shape.

are proud of their City. All you
have to do is look down at the

progress that will benefit all the

his family, and send them to your ,.

pleasing atmosphere-don't
change it and you see see you

Report: Spinal manipulation is best


Reprint from USA Today, Friday, Oct.
29, 1993
Not many U. S. doctors have heard
about the new Canadian back pain
study, but they probably will soon -
because chiropractors can't stop talking
about it.
The study-done by a team of Cana-
dian health economists commissioned
and funded by the Ontario Ministry of
Health-is based on an extensive review
of international medical literature as
*ell .as interviews with researchers,
practitioners and patients.
Its conclusion: that the best clinical
studies show spinal manipulation by






mmmc


chiropractors 'is more effective, safer
and more cost-effective than other treat-
ment for low-back pain.
The report's principal researcher,
Pran Manga, says chiropractors could
save hundreds of millions of dollars a
year, but he doesn't stop there. "Many
medical therapies are of questionable
validity or are clearly inadequate," some
are "unsafe," and even cause complica-
tions, the report says.
Manga says he found "good empiri-
cal evidence patients are very satisfied"
with chiropractors and "considerably
less satisfied with physician manage-
ment" of low back pain. Many pay out-


of-pocket for chiropractor bills not cov-
ered by insurance; they wouldn't if it
didn't help, he says.
Manga, reached by phone at the
University of Ottawa, where he is a pro-
fessor, says he is "a little embarrassed"at
having become chiropractors' champion.
"I don't know where they got the
study-I did not talk to a single chiro-
practor or person working with them,
and they did not know the study was
being done," he says.
He knows his report may benefit
chiropractors. But it seems so positive
one can't help but wonder: does he have


some personal interest in giving chiro-
practors a boost?
"My interest is serving the public in-
terest," he responds. "It's not personal,
and not family-related. If anything, I
have many (medical) doctors in my fam-
ily."
He simply believes his findings.
"The evidence is overpowering," he
says.
When asked by, if this is true, medi-
cal doctors don't seem to know it, Man-
ga says, "I think doctors do know chiro-
practors are better and more effective"
for back pain. "Their beef is (chiroprac-
tors) also treat other kinds of problems."

Patrick Store Has Arrived


at Nicholson's In Havana


The Nicholson Farmhouse
Restaurant is a delightful mixture
of. aged buildings located just
west of Havana on State Road 12.
If the old Patrick Store Couldn't
survive in Gulf County, it could
not have picked a better final
resting place. "Isn't she some-
thingl." Paul Nicholson.stood ad-
miring the old building that had
just that day been "delivered" to
his site. "We plan to get it set up,
restore where need be and then
reopen it as. a country store."
SNicholson knows *a thing or
two about reopenings. Eight years
ago the opportunity arose for him
to purchase the old Nicholson
family house which was originally
constructed In 1828 by Dr. Mal-
colm Nicholson, 'Paul's great,
great grandfather. Along with wife
Ann and long-ti.ne friends Willard
and Carolyn Rudd. they formed a
partnership to restore 'and "re-
open" the farmhouse as a restau-
rant featuring big steaks and
genuine, down home, old fash-
ioned service.
The excellently. prepared
meals and the friendly, family at-
mosphere has certainly paid off.-
From a modest opening on Sep-
tember 20, 1988 in the one
house, they have expanded sever-
al times and now have a seating
capacity of around 600 in five dif-
ferent houes. "Expanding" to
them means bringing In a new,
old building loaded with southern
grace, style, unique characteris-
tics and a storied past. These spe-
cial relics are then carefully re-
stored with tender, loving, care
and placed into service. They -tru-
ly come alive again under the
watchful eye of'the Nicholson-
Rudd team.
Willard Rudd calls this won-
derful, step back in time-eatery,
'The occasion place for a dining
experience." And that is what 'it
truly is, an experience. No one
rushes through the meal for fear.
of being rude. And what a treat to
browse through the separate
houses taking in the anUque-
laden rooms And. of course, the
owners are there every Tuesday
through Saturday moving from ta-
ble to table, room to room, build-
ing to building -adding their per-
sonal touch. This family oriented
business is not open on Sunday
or Monday.
It Is obviously a labor of love.
And they have no thoughts of
resting on,their highly successful
laurels. Paul and- Willard took
turns explaini.g, i'e had
planned a bed and breakfast type
thing. We feel the folks in this
area would enjoy that."
"But Patrick's Store put that
on hold."
"Yes, it was just too good a:
situation to pass up."
"Once it is restored, we'll
stock it with old country sausage,
can goods, bottle drinks, hoop
cheese, you know, the old
things-It will definitely be a
working store."
"We have mixed emotions, we
hate to uproot these old buildings '
but we also hate to see them de-

can't be saved."

Another Victim of a Femdle
Local teen. Jamie White, spent her Christmas holiday time
wisely this year. Following fourteen years of coat-tailing her dad,.
Harlan Haddock into the woods, she shot her first buck on the
morning of January 3rd. She killed the deer while standing "her
side" of a block of woods in southeastern Bay County as dogs were
trailing him. Her comments to staff at The Star were, "he may not
have a big rack of horns, but he's got just enough for me."

test range alternative
i-he Final EIS has assessed potential Irn-
pacts associated with conducting extended range
missile and sensor tests at rour alternative test
range areas: Eglm Air Force Base. Florida. White
Sands Missile Range. New Mexico. Western Range
(Vandenberg AFB, San Nicolas Island. and San
Clemnrte Island). California. and Kwajalein Missile
Range in the mid Pacific The TMD program allows

around the world. against attacks by short- and
medium-range. ballistic, cruise, or air-to-surface
rmissil a armed with convenuonal., nuclear, biology.

These tests would consist of multiple dem-
onstranon and developmental missile launches

The Final EIS addresses the potential envi-
ronmertal Impacts that would result from test site
modifications, launch preparation requirements,
missile flights along the proposed flight paths, and
Intercepts of targets over existing ranges or open
sea areas. It also identifies rrmitgation mTeasures
that would lessen the impacts. Environmental re
source topics evaluatea include: health and safety.

PROPOSED ACTION: The action is to conduct de-
fenslse missile tests, and associated sensor tests
at one or more of four extended test ranges. The
tests involve targei'missile launches and defensive
missile launches from existing test ranges and
from off-range locafflons Potential off-range loca-
tions included land areas and sea-based plat-
forms. Missile-Lo- missile Intercepts %ill occur over
existing test range areas or over open sea areas.
Up to approximately 100 flight tests could occur
during the period 1995 to 2000, from more than
one off-range location, and potentially from more
than one test range area. These tests may contin-
ue well beyond 2000.
Alternatves for conducting these missile
flight tests and intercepts, evaluated in the TMD
Extended Test Range EIS, are:
1. White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), NM.
This alternative includes defensive missile missile launch-
es and associated sensor testing at WSMR and FL
Bliss, TX, with off-range target missile launches
from Ft. Wingate Depot Activity, NM, and the
Green River Launch Complex, UT.
2. Eglin Air Force Base (AFB). FL. This alter-
native includes defensive missile launches and as-
sociated sensor, testing at Eglin. AFB on Santa.
Rosa Island and at Cape San Blas,. with off-range
missile launches from a sea-based platform in the.
Gulf of Mexico.
3. The Western Range, CA. This alternative
includes defensive missile launches and associat-
ed sensor testing at Vandenberg AFB, San Nicolas
Island, and San Clemente Island, with off-range
target missile launches from a sea-based platform

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
One hundred and twenty-;
three years ago, In Nebraska, Ar-
bor Day had its beginning. On
January 4, 1872, J. Sterling Mor-
on, a member of the State Board
of Agriculture, and later governor,
Introduced and secured the adop-
tion of the following resolution:
"that Wednesday, the tenth day of
April, 1872, be especially set
apart and consecrated to tree
planting in the state of Nebraska"
and the, State Board of Agricul-
ture hereby named it "Arbor Day".
State-wide publicity was giv-
en the occasion, and more than a-
million trees were planted on the
first Arbor Day. Thereafter, the
Arbor Day tradition spread until
approximately two-thirds of the .
states have passed laws or reso-
lutions providing for the obser-
vance of Arbor Day. The citizens
of Florida had their first Arbor
Day celebration in 1886. In 1945,
the Florida Legislature adopted
the third Friday on January. 20.
Why don't you join In the 106th
Arbor Day celebration by planting
a tree?
Trees, not buildings are the
best measure of civilized land-
scape. A sense of time, history
and continuity are demonstrated
in a community in which trees
survive and more are regularly
planted.
Those sections of our com-
munities where old trees do sur-
vive-the better residential dis-
tricts, parks, and campuses- are
the pride of our towns and cities.
These are areas we quickly point
out to visitors and tourists. Cities
that are rich In trees have a char-
acter all their own of which the
citizens may be justly proud.
In addition to these aesthetic
reasons for having trees there are
also some very practical ones.
Trees may be referred to as na-
ture's air conditioners. They mod-
erate the climate by protecting
areas- from extreme of wind, heat,
cold, glare and drought.
Trees also purify the air. '
While humans and animals con-
sume oxygen and emit carbon di-

can transpire several tons of wa- livin
ter. That evaporation produces a in
cooling effect as 10 air condition- plac
ce ers running 20 hours, causing you
the air to be as much as 20 de- comr
grees cooler under the trees. year
Trees purify water, protect
watersheds and prevent soil ero-
sion. Three-fourths of the na-
tion's water comes from the fo-
rested third of the country.. Trees,
cushioning the impact of rainfall
on forest floors, regulate water
flow, so provide a vital link in the
earth's water system.
Trees reduce highway and
street noise. Solid belts of trees,
with shrub row plantings, may re-
duce noise up to 50 percent along
highways and streets.
Real estate people tell us that
one of the best reasons: to plant
good trees is to increase the value
and sales appeal of our homes.
The landscape architect is
the professional whose job it Is to
best select, and place trees in our
environment. Trees should be a

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JAN..19, 1995


Conservatives Rule


SState. Chicken Roost

Florida has a third "shadow government" to contend with in the up-
coming Legislative year. It is the five Republican House committees set
up to watch liberal Democrats and propose bills of their own. They'll join
agency administrators who govern by rules, and special interest lobbyists
who have historically almost become a third chamber.
The unusual pattern was taking shape last week as House Minority
Leader Dan Webster, R-Orlando, appointed five committees to take a
closer look at legislation because, as he put it: 'The agenda is ours. We're
that close to governing."
Although Speaker Peter Wallace, D-St Petersburg, is a classic liber-
al, he had to give Republicans a big role on all the committees to keep his
own office in the face of a coalition of Republicans (six seats shy of a ma-
jority) and conservative Democrats who could have easily picked another
speaker and set their own agenda.
With a Republican majority in the Senate, the shadow GOP govern-
ment in the House can be effective, especially in the late hours of the ses-
sion when Democrats have been known to slip some shady legislation
through without proper notice or debate. The most recent example is the
bill that made it easier for the state to sue the tobacco companies that
Wallace helped Gov. Lawton Chiles slip into law last year.
You might call the House conservatives a mini-shadow government,.
interesting because of its novelty. Biggie shadow governments, of course,
are state agencies which administer almost 28,000 rules, and the special
interest lobbies that pour influences and money into re-election cam-
paigns.
Gov. Lawton Chiles and LLt. Gov. Buddy MacKay have declared war
on government rules and there is no doubt they will automatically inherit
help from the first Republican Senate "and most conservative Florida
House since reconstruction.
The real rub, of course, is to come when the special interest "shadow
government" cranks up. This crowd-sometimes known as the evil em-
pire-isn't just well-financed businesses with paid lobbyists who rule in
the middle chamber in the capitol between the House and the Senate.
Other card carrying members are welfare, environmental and education
lobbyist, sometimes on state payrolls. This historic shadow government
peddles either influence: (voter swaying) or money on which to finance ,po-
litical campaigns. .... '
A $300,000 INAUGURAL: The Democratic Party raised $175,000 for
Chiles' $300.000 inaugural shindig that listed on the program such big-
gie contributors as $5,000 each from Florida Power & Light and Blue
Cross & Blue Shield. Other listed sponsors were AT&T and Florida Trial

Capital News Round-Up
A circuit judge voiced serious doubts last week about school boards
suing for more money for education 'after a former state attorney general
argued it would create "legal chaos" and cost millions of dollars in new
'taxes.
Leon Circuit Judge L. Ralph Smith. Jr. said he didn't understand
why Gov. Lawton Chiles and Education Commissioner Frank Brogan are
named in the suit because they aren't responsible for paying for schools.
The legislature alone has that responsibility under the state constitution.
Smith seemed ready to dismiss the suit filed last year by a coalition
of 45 county school boards in Florida, but took the arguments under ad-
visement.L,.
The school boards have already spent more than $375,000 In the
suit that claims the-gover'eori,ediucaUtin commissioner and lawmakers"
have not adequately financed the state's education system.
Former State Attorney Robert Shevin argued that the lawsuit would
take more than two years to settle and that a constitutional amendment
capping state revenues makes a massive court overhaul of school financ-
ing impossible.
"But the bottom line." Shevin said, "is that only one branch of gov-
ernment controls the purse and that is the Legislature."
HRS OVERHAUL: In the wake of scathing criticism from a Palm
Beach grand jury after the deaths of four children in foster care homes.
the head of the state's social service agency called for a panel of outside
experts to overhaul Florida's child welfare system.
Jim Towey, secretary of the Health and Rehabilitative Services, said
confidence in the state's foster-care system is very low. He wants the Leg-
islature to authorize a check of every foster care home so lawmakers will
have the information in the session beginning March 7 to improve the
system.
BAY CLOSED AGAIN: Heavy rains kept Florida's most productive
Apalachicola Bay closed to the harvesting of oysters last weekend just as
state officials were prepared to lift the ban Imposed Jan. 4 following the
outbreak of illnesses linked to contaminated oysters.
State officials said the probability is that the bay will be opened
again to oystering by midweek. Although state officials closed Apalachico-
la Bay. the illness has been traced to Texas harvested oysters sold by
Florida seafood dealers. Later last week Texas authorities banned oyster
harvesting in Galveston Bay after an outbreak of illnesses In Texas.

'There is no way I can think of ...that the present graduation rate is a
sufficient return of investment to continue what you are doing," Kirkpa-
trick said.
Latest figures show Florida State leading in 4-year graduation rate
with 35,4 percent of the freshman class of 1988 graduating 'in four years
and 58.8 percent in five years. The lowest among nine universities in
Floridawas Florida A & M with 8 percent graduating in four years and
25 percent in five years.
w FAMU President Frederick Hu phries said compa ringhis university
with the others was unfair because it was the only school autllorized to

four year graduation schedule.
PRISON CHIEF IN TROUBLE: Florida Corrections Secretary Harry
Singleta.ry--already In trouble for firing former prisons chief Richard
Duggar for supporting Jeb Bush for governor-was grilled unmercifully
by a Senate committee on the reasons for the escape of five convicted
murderers at Belle Glade state prison Jan. 3. ,. 0 a
Singletary must be confirmed by the Florida Senate. Cov. Lawton
Chiles, who has reappointed him to the state's top prison post, also
called for a security review of the entire system.
Sen. Ken Jenne. D-Fort Lauderdale. asked Singletary how prisoners
had time to tunnel under the prison chapel to the outside and how they
were able to burrow undetected through the black muck.
"That bothers me too," Singletary said. He added that escapes were
cut from 1,640 in 1987-88 to 211 by 1991-92. after he was appointed
secretary. .
Duggar. who was fired by Singletary with Chiles' tacit approval, de-
nied he had coerced prison employees to support Bush in the heated
election campaign last November. He had only six months to go to reach
30 years of service in the state system which would have given him great-
er retirement benefits when Singletary fired him from a post in East Pa-
latka. Recently, he accepted a post as jail administrator in Clay County
where he will be able to pick up the six months he needs for full retire-
ment.
One of the escaped killers was killed in an exchange of gunfire and
three others had been recaptured late last week, leaving only one still at
large .

Wildlife Alert Is

A Big Success
A telephone hotline created to
fight crimes against wildlife con-
tinues to pay big dividends in
Florida. WILDLIFE ALERT re-
ceives 800 to 1.000 calls each
year from sportsmen and other
nature lovers concerned with pro-
tecting animals, fish and other
components of nature.
During the first six months of
1994, officers made 574 arrests .
as a result of the program, and
fines against violators totalled
more than $6.100. Examples in-
cluded one suspect who was ille-
gaily shocking fish before catch-
ing them and another man who
was keeping a cobra inside a stor-
age facility (not only was the sus-
pect arrested, but he had to be
rushed to the hospital for treat-
ment after the snake bit him).
Since its creation In 1979.
more than 13,000 arrests have
been made thanks to the WILD-
LIFE ALERT program, and fines
have averaged approximately
$20,000 per year.
"There's no doubt it's a big
help in stopping violators," In-
spector Kyle Hill said of WILD-
LIFE ALERT. "It's also nice to"
know there are lots of people out
there who care enough about
wildlife to call in when they see
something wrong."
WILDLIFE ALERT also has
been profitable for those who call
the hotline.: In many gases, call-
ers are eligible for rewards (some-
times as much as $1.000). and
everyone can remain anonymous.
In the first six months of
1994. the fund handed out 37 re-
wards totalling $7,050. Since
1979, rewards have topped
$207,000. That money comes
from a fund made up of tax-
deductible donations and fines
levied against those found guilty
of violating conservation laws.
To report wildlife law viola-
tors, .people should call their

Fish Commission office. The toll-

use. Chiles means to propose an average 85 percent, meaning some will
serve more and some less than 85 percent. Senate leaders are calling for
at least 85 percent, meaning all will serve at least 85 percent of their sen-
tence and none less. Republican Jeb Bush campaigned against Chiles in
the governor's race on a promise to make prisoners serve at least 85 per-
cent of their sentences. Chiles' camp said it would bankrupt the state.
Senate President Jim Scott, R-Ft. Lauderdale, said that a bill, that
cleared the Criminal Justice Committee accomplishes the 85 percent goal
and will pass in the full Senate early in the March 7 session. Scott said
the money needed could be raised without increasing taxes.
He also said that prisoners released over the. last 18 months had
served an average of 43 percent of their sententence time, although that was
increased to 57.9 percent for those released last month.
Chiles has announced he was eliminating unearned gain time so
those entering prison now would serve an average 75 percent of their
sentences. Aides said his budget proposals next week would include pro-
visions to increase the average to 85 percent.
The Legislative fight is expected to be in the House where the cost of
the sentence time increase will get a tougher look to see how much it in-
jures funding for education and environmental cleanup programs.

Government panel gives chiropractors a crack at back pain.


Reprint fromKnight-Ridder News-
papers, by Delthia Ricks
On Thursday, a 23-member fed-
eral panel led by an orthopedic
surgeon issued back-care guide-
lines that are already sparking con-
troversy but validate what chiro-
practors have said all along: spinal
manipulation works.
The panel of experts is advising
people with sudden, sharp back
pain to:
* Spend no more than two to three
days in bed.


06**4
Mm
em***

'am.


* Take over-the-counter painkillers
* Start moderate exercise as soon
as possible.
* If in need of professional help,
see a health-care professional who
performs spinal manipulation.
The guidelines, from the U. S.
Agency for Health Care Policy and
Research, focus on the sharp, acute
back pain that afflicts an estimated
8 million Americans and costs the
nation about S20 billion annually,
according to 1990 figures.
The federal panel of experts, led


by Dr. Stanley J. Bigos, professor of
orthopedic surgery at the Universi-
ty of Washington in Seattle, re-
viewed more than 3,900 studies to
prepare the new back-care guide-
lines.
"The real problem with back-
ache is not the pain but the impact
of being limited by the pain, which
can increase the possibility of long-
term disability," Bigos said.
Surgery helps only one in 100
people with acute low-back prob-
lems, he said, and there is no scien-


tific data supporting the use of po-
tent steroid medications.
Rather than high-tech diagnos-
tics and therapies the panel recom-
mended applying an ice pack to
the painful area for five or 10 min-
utes. That should provide relief
within the first 48 hours. If not, a
hot shower or heating pad may
work. If those fail, spinal manipu-
lation probably is the best profes-
sional treatment, the new guide-
lines state.

Positive Action
Our Positive Action 'Word for
'the Week" is RESPECT. The
teaching of respect is an interest-
ing and somewhat difficult propo-
sition. The main thing to ,remem-
ber is that respect isn't given
consistently unless it is received.
We need first to respect our
children (in terms of how we
speak to them and how we treat
them) and then to, absolutely de-
mand that they show respect for
us in return. The respect they re-
ceive in the home will.be the ba-
sis for their own self-respect; and
the respect they learn to show in
the home (to family members) will
be the foundation on which to
build respect for others outside
the home.
