Suspicious Blaze Ruled Arson


A fire of an unoccupied dwelling caused
Port St. Joe Fire Department and fire in-
spection officials to have serious questions
about how It started last Tuesday night
about 9:30 p.m., at 214 Avenue B.
The unoccupied dwelling was suspected
by neighbors to have been used by people
unknown, for suspicious activities. The
owner, Carl White, had made several at-
tempts to keep the unknown parties out of
the hbose, td no avail, he said.
When the empty dwelling burst into
flame, officials questioned the cause of the
fire to the extent that Fire Marshal John


Hatcher was called in to investigate the
blaze and determine the cause. Hatcher
found traces of gasoline in a pile of trash
which had been gathered into a room of the
house and then set fire. His investigation
ruled that fire in the dwelling had been
started on purpose by a person or persons
unknown.
Damage to the building was limited to
the room in which the trash had been'piled
_up and ignited. -. ..

There were no utilities going to the emp-
ty structure.


Federal Disaster Furnshed


For Halfof Flood Damage


Six months after Tropical
Storm Alberto sent record floods
through 12 counties in the Flori-
da Panhandle, more than half of
the disaster-aid claims filed by 60
public agencies have been paid,
Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) officials said
Tuesday.
But big bills are still coming
in. Of $12.4 million in estimated
damages to public property, there
are 56 large projects worth some
$8 million, still to be completed.
For the most part, this is the slow
work of repairing roads and
bridges. More than 700 damaged
facilities were found eligible for
funding following detailed dam-
age surveys.
Alberto hit Florida, Alabama
and Georgia las July. dumping as


much as 20 inches of rain in the
flood plain of half a dozen rivers.
Federal aid became available
when President Clinton declared
the flooded counties a disaster
area.
Seventeen state agencies, 43
local government units and 33
other eligible applicants, such as
non-profit agencies, sought aid to
restore damaged properties to
their pre-flood condition and pay
the expenses of recovery.
'We anticipate that in six
more months nearly 90 percent of.
applicants found eligible for dis-
aster aid will have had their
claims satisfied," said Jack
Hurst, Infrastructure Officer in
FEMA's Tallahassee field office.
"In the disaster relief business,
where you have to clean up be-.


fore you can fix up, that's good
progress."
Washington and Walton
counties suffered the most dol-
lar damage to public property.
Each was found eligible for $3.7
million to repair roads and
bridges and remove debris.
Holmes and Gulf counties fol-
lowed and will get $810,248
and $736.810, respectively.
Under federal law. FEMA
pays 75 percent of the actual cost
of repairs, to public property.
State and local governments pay
the rest. JIn addition to physical
damage, state and local govern-
ments, can be reimbursed for.

Road Repair Projects



Given to Roberts4Firm

House Numbering Becomes Necessary Mandate


t, C. W. Roberts Construction
7 Company was awarded the con-
tract to repair Highway 22-A and
the Old Bay City Road during
Tuesday evening's County Com-
mission meeting. Roberts Con-
struction Company's bid of
$128.888.88 was the low bid
beating out the second lowest bid
by a little over $7,000. Highway
22-A and the Old Bay City Road
were damaged by Tropical Storm
Alberto over the summer and are
being repaired by funds furnished
jby Federal Emergency Funding
Act (FEMA).'Approval of the con-
tract is contingent upon the state
giving the go ahead to the project
since the bids were higher than
Sthe estimated cost by FEMA.
MAPPING COMMITTEE
Don Butler, Gulf County
Planning'/ Building Director, re-
ported to the Board that the map-
ping committee, appointed at the
last commission meeting, had
met and discussed the needs of
: the various departments of
county government. Butler point-
ed out that those with the biggest
Needs for mapping information
were Emergency 911, Gulf
County Building Department,
Gulf County Road Department
and the Prpperty Appraiser's of-
fice. He said the Supervisor of
Elections, Tax Collector's office
and other officers in the county
needed maps but they would not
be as complex to prepare as those
needed by the four other depart-
ments.
Butler also provided the
Board with a price of $44,400
Submitted by Preble & Rish Engi-
t-yeering to prepare .the maps for
"\the county. The Road Department
and Building Department agreed
to pay $26,000 of the price from
their budgets and the Board
agreed to proceed with the map-
ping plans, noting that they

would approach the other depart-
ments involved about paying their,
part of the remaining $18,000
from their budgets.
S'' 911 Numbers- "
Chairman Michael Hammond
asked the Board to make the pen-
alty for non-compliance of man-
datory posting of house numbers
a civil rather than a criminal
charge. The current wording of
the proposed house numbering
ordinance allows 30 days for a
person to conform to the ordi-
nance. Failure to conform would'
have been a misdemeanor penal-
ty. punishable by up to a $500
f, ine and/or up to 60 days in the
Gulf County Jail. Hammond said
he had received several phone
calls stating that the penalty was
too severe, especially the possibil-
ity of jail time.
Commissioner Billy Taylor re-
sponded to Hammond noting he
had received some of the same
calls but said, "We need numbers
posted on every household and
business in the county to aid
emergency personnel as .they an-
swer 911 calls."
Traylor said one caller had
said this was just one more case
of the government intruding into
a person's privacy.
Hammond replied that he
agreed but felt a civil penalty of
fines levied against those in non-


compliance would be sufficient to
get the job done.
Larry Wells. Gulf County Ad-
' ministrative Assistant, pointed
out that the intent of the 911
Committee's ordinance wdrdirtg
was not to send citizens to jail for
not posting their number proper-
ty, but to have leverage to force
compliance by those whose fail-
ure to comply might "Impact oth-
ers" such as a business or apart-
ment complex. He further stated
that the ordinance was patterned
after Bay County's 911 Ordi-
nance.
The Board decided to change
the ordinance wording making
-, failure to comply a civil penalty,
punishable by fines.
Marshall Nelson, 911 Coordi-
nator, handed out sample pack-
ets containing 911 information to
the board members. Nelson said
the packets will be distributed by
area fire departments over the
next several months to every
household in the county.
Work Crew Added to
Maintenance Department
The Board put the wheels
into motion to establish another
prison work crew for the county.
The crew would be assigned to
the Maintenance Department at
the courthouse, under the direc-

Tentative State


Funding For Gulf

Operating Prisons Is Expensive Matter
Gulf County is recommended to receive several state
funds in the 1995-96 budget it was announced this week by.
the state. Several, large parcels of money has tentatively
been allocated to the Gulf County Correctional Institution,
paving, schools, libraries and other public functions fi-
nanced by the state of Florida.
It's ironic to note that. Gulf is scheduled to receive
$13,668,721 to open and operate a 1,183 bed annex at Gulf
Correctional Institute. But public school operations will re-
ceive only $9,674,966 for education during the upcoming
school year. In addition the school system will receive
$292,492 for maintenance, repair and renovation and anoth-
er fund of $101,308 for public school construction. The
County will receive four million dollars more for their prison
addition than it receives for school operations. The prison
funding is in addition to an institution already constructed
and in operation on the Stone Mill Creek site.
Other governmental operations will receive $2,727,385
to resurface State Road 22 from Wetappo Creek to State
Road. 71 in Wewahitchka. The county will also receive-
$22,092 as state aid to libraries to enhance the Gulf County
Library operation and $38,562 to, eliminate a waiting list'for
Alzheimer's respite services.
All of these funds must, still be approved by the spring
session of the state legislature to be included in the newly
proposed budget.


First Witnesses Heard in Harrison Trial 'j. ,.

Defense Attorney Don Modisett Hammers at Former Inmates' Credibility


The federal trial of suspended Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison
got underway Monday in Panama City. Harrison is charged with 10
misdemeanor counts of violating the civil rights of five former in-
mates by: coercing them to engage in sexual acts. Each count could
carry a maximum penalty of one year in prison and/or up to
V100,000 in fines.
Jury selection and opening statements by both the prosecuting
attorney Randall Hensel and Harrison's attorney Don Modesitt were
completed Monday.
The 12-member jury selected consisted of eight women and four
men, none of whom are residents of Gulf county. Two alternates
were also selected.
In opening statements Hensel described how. Harrison allegedly
demanded sexual favors from female inmates who were seeking
trustee status, furloughs or other considerations: Hensel said that
the Sherif was the ultimate authority to grant furloughs and other
considerations.
He also said the prosecution would introduce DNA testing that
would show a high probability that semen found in the Sheriffs of-
fice is Harrison's.
In describing the former inmates who bought charges again the
suspended sheriff, Hensel acknowledged, they have long criminal
records but said they have the right not be sexually assaulted.
Harrison's attorney, Don Modesitt, described them in a different
light, referring to the accusers as "criminals of the worse sort". He
said they were greedy and out for revenge.
Modesitt said he had several witnesses who have heard former


inmates say they were "out to get" Harrison for arresting them.
He also questioned former Gulf County Judge David Taunton's
involvement in the case. He said Taunton relayed information to the
FDLE concerning former inmate("Barbara Grinslade's allegations
that Harrison had forced her to have sex with him.
Modesitt also said Taunton was upset with Harrison for discuss-
ing a problem concerning bad checks Taunton and his wife, Abigail,
had written.
Modesitt said Taunton enlisted an attorney for Grinslade who
has filed an Intent to sue the county over Harrison's alleged sexual
misconduct, and that the same 'attorney had also helped relieve
Taunton's financial woes by purchasing an overdue mortgage on
property which he and his wife had purchased. If Harrison is con-
victed Modesitt said, Taunton and the former inmates will gain fi-
nancially. Taunton denied he would gain financially from the pro-
ceedings when he took the stand Tuesday.
The prosecution began to present its case Tuesday, calling four
of the five former inmates to testify on their alleged sexual relations
with Harrison. Barbara Grinslade, Robin Goldsburg Johnson, Ann
Vitale and Josephine Walker all.graphicly described their alleged re-
lationship with Harrison.
Modesitt cross-examined the alleged victims pointing out dis-
crepancies in their stories.
The prosecution will continue to present its case against Harri-
son for the next few days-then Harrison's attorney will mount their
defense against the charges. The trial is expected to last for several
days before it is handed over to the jury to reach a verdict.

Tax Reform

LAST WEEK END, THE talk in Tallahassee was about tax
reform. The Governor' got in on the act and was all indignant
about how the current property tax wasn't fair to all concerned.
There's nothing new about that. Any property tax payer can
testify to that and give you chapter and verse as to just why and
how it is unfair. There's no rhyme or reason as to why property
tax payers should get an increase more often than a postage rate
increase while other taxes have almost a constant rate. The gas-
oline tax is one major exception.
Taxes as a whole are something less than palatable at their
most equally distributed, but when you get them so far out of
balance as ad valorem taxes are with other tax levies, it is time
for a tax reform.
WHAT DOES A TAX REFORM mean? In the past "tax re-.
form" has been nothing less than' a euphemism for "tax in-,
crease". Some tax payer, someplace, gets a hit in the wallet, and
it's called "tax reform". The last time we had tax reform, we got a
state law out of the deal which required all Property Appraisers
to levy a value against all property, declaring a piece of property
worth as much as a piece of property in the neighborhood which
was sold recently. It didn't matter that a certain buyer was will-
ing to pay more than a certain piece of property was worth just
because he wanted it and the owner wasn't particularly interest-
ed in selling. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Blow's property, just down the
street-wherei they had made their home for 40 years-went up
in value, accordingly. They end up losing 40 years of memories,'
simply because they can't pay the taxes! .
Taxing a -person's property can never be considered fair.
There are too many variables to consider.
TAX REFORM ALMOST invariably means a tax increase, be-
cause government seldom begins messing with taxes without the
goal being to make them produce.more money and do it pain-
lessly for the tax payer.
We've had "tax reform" in our school taxes, our road taxes,
our money for prisons taxes and our money for health, rehabili-
tation and welfare, and nobody was satisfied with the resulting
reforms; not even the recipients of the money the reforms pro-
duced. '
Tax reform by a reduction of taxes would be real reform. Tax
reform in any other manner would mean business as usual by
confiscatory methods.


The Enola Gay

THE MAJORITY OF Americans and most ot the rest of the
world are as proud as punch of the fact that the United States
had access to the atomic bomb first! There isn't even much dis-
pute over how we have handled that responsibility. We dropped
the first atomic bomb in the history of mankind duringithe Sec-
ond World War. It killed many thousands of Japanese, possibly,
more than the recent earthquake.
,Almost universally, people credit the bomb T'for bringing the
Pacific 'war to a close and saving more American and Japanese
lives thah were killed by the bomb, as a result. Harry Truman
was given a place in history for having the foresight and the in-
testinal fortitude to say, "Drop it!" Nobody can fault the steward-
ship of the United States in their possession of the bomb and
nuclear capabilities in general. The nation has been most cau-
tious and frugal with the dispensing of their knowledge and
hardware.
NOW COMES A GROUP which is letting its yellow streak
show. The Smithsonian Museum had plans to put the Enola
Gay, the B-29 which dropped that first bomb, on display. But
they had plans to exhibit the plane in a manner to display the
United States as the aggressor in that war and the Enola Gay as
a dispenser of needless death.
The American'Legi6n is opposing anything less than an hon-
orable method of display for the plane and the role it played in
mankind's history. The Legion should be joined by an outcry
from every American.
We doubt that. any survivor of Pearl Harbor, the Bataan
Death March, Corrigadore, Mount Surabachi. the Solomon Is-,
lands, the Philippines, Wake Island, Kwajalein or Guam will give
support to the portrayal of the Enola Gay as the aggressor in the
Pacific war.
If the Enola Gay portrays any role in the Smithsonian, it
should be one of the heroic act it performed.:


lunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


"Rescue The Perishing"


A few weeks back I men-
tioned that I had about run out of
things to tell you in this little
blurb. I marvelled at how Wesley
has been churning out stories
week after week for nigh on to 43
,years. Let me assure you, I won't
be around that long! (I can hear a
collective sigh of relief out there
in newspaper land.)
,I discussed the frightening
prospects, of facing a, deadline
with no story.. And I undoubtedly
must 'a thrown. something in


about taking up drinking if I
- didn't get some real good ideas
real fast.
The tone of the story was that
I needed help..
Laura called the day the
paper came out, "Kes, I'm here to
save you from a life of strong
drink-l've got a great article for
you."
"Let it rip."
'This is a true story."
'That's the only kind I do."
*"My aunt who lives up in At-
lanta got on the interstate going
the wrong way!"
"O.,K., then what happened?"
'Well, don't you see, ,she was
going one way and all these cars
were going the other."
"I got'cha. and the story here
is "


"Can't you just picture this
little old lady going the wrong
way? Everyone dodging-pointing
at her. I tell you Kes, it's a
scream!"
"I can picture a 72 car pile
up. Did she hit anybody?"
"Not that I know of."
"Laura, I .appreciate it, but I
don't think I can do your story-
people today want action, you,
know, blood and gutsl.
Robbert stopped me coming
out of the hardware store. "Kes-
ley, I kind'a understand what you'
were saving last week -" .
'Well, thank you." I could feel
my chest swelling up like a bloat-
ed sow, I wouldn't a' thought
Robert would have bothered to
rea-- .,
-- I've got to have a couple


of stiff belts myself before at-
tempting one of your articles."
Everybody fancies themselves
a critic!
Steve came by the, house.
"Coach, you could write about
our old history class. Remember,
how you'd chew that Red \Man
and tell us about, Loretta Lynn
and Adolph Hitler in between
spits."
"Let's see now, I remember
Loretta Lynn and Adolph Hitler."
"Come on Coach, you had
that big tin cup right up by your
deskl"
"Surely I didn't chew in
class."
"Heck,' you taught us the
quick hip-neck snap method of
long distance spitting."
"Did I happen to teach you
any history."
"You got us prepared for
those Jane Fonda red sock wear-
ing left wing give it all away pinko
Commie bleeding heart liberals."
"How about something simple
. like the Boston Tea Party.
Did we ever -
"Oh sure, you told us it was
when a bunch of Indians dressed
up like settlers and Infiltrated
Boston late at night. They were
trying to get some of their corn:
back."
Whewl Enough ''of this" pop
quiz. "Steve. son, how is .the fami-
ly?"
"Fine. Do you remember
when you made Kitty throw the.
erasers?"
"I didn't make her throw any-
thing. Kitty had a terrible temper
"Honey, telephone." My wife
snatched us back from 1972.
'Thanks for stopping by
Steve, but I'm not sure civilization
Is ready for some of those "room
105" war tales-too much blood
and guts! ... Hello."
"Kes, it was 1-75. She was in
a blue Ford Pinto. She was trying
to get to Marietta but somehow
she got in the Southbound lane
except. of course, she was head-
ing North. She rolled her window
down to ask for help but nobody
pulled up beside her. They just
whizzed past-going in the oppo-
site direction! I thought a few de-
tails might help you with the sto-
ry'. My aunt has red hair. Well,
it's not really red but she's been
"touching it up" since Uncle
George ran into Lucille Ball out in'
Wichita .....
A little later Leon called, "I
know you're searching for stories
but don't tell 'em about us taking
the red light off tl' police chiefs
car."
"0. K."
"And don't tell 'em about me
jumping off the bridge."
"0. K."
"And don't tell 'em about the
midnight ride through Archie
Moore's cotton field."
"O. K."
"And for goodness isakes,
don't tell them about the big fight
up at Slick Tosh's Skyway Grill."
"0. K."
Folks. I may not have to start
drinking after all. I think Leon

SDiscerning When Tight"Leaves Off and "Frugality"Begins


LAST WEEK, OLD Kes came
up with about four names of peo-
ple you-would-least-expect-to-
offer-to-buy-your-dinner for you.
and I agreed with him. His selec-
tion was pretty much on target.
He had those guys pegged right
on the button.
But as sometimes happens
when one starts naming names
for anything someone gets his
name left off the list Usually, the,
name left off the list turns out to-
be the name, which should be at
the top of the list He should have
*been the :one thought of first;
number one on the hit parade!
Familiarity should be' ade-
quate to convince anyone in town
that Kes hardly scratched the
surface when it came to naming
those in Port St. Joe who are par-
simonious with the buck .
tight, if you will
,Kes should know this is a
newspapere, and his paragraph
on those who would be least like-


ly to pick up a dinner check was
hardly news to anyone. It was
more like common knowledge.
He should remember this the
next time he is writing. He didn't,
tell us anything: we 'didn't already
know. Actually, he told us a little
bit of history, there, instead of re-
vealing any 'news"" to us.

BUT OLD KES didn't tell us
about the chief of thrifty people.
He didn't tell us about the fellow
who will drive his old pick-up un-
til his feet hang out the rotted-out
bottom. He didn't tell us about
the one who comes calling on us
right at- 12:00 noon because he


knows there is usually something
good cooked in our kitchen here,
at The Star. He didn't tell you
about the guy who takes his wife
to a movie he wants to see, buys
her a bag of popcorn and calls it
"dining out". He didn't tell you
about the guy who -visits his
neighbors' squirrel feeders in the
fall, to collect enough pecans for
his wife to make a pecan pie.
In short, Kes didn't give you
his own name when he started
listing the name of those who
squeeze a buck till George Wash-
ington yells for mercy.
Kes can pretty much set the
pattern for those who are close.


You remember him writing -
ab'out that new cat that took up
at his house'? He didn't want to
let his sweet little wife keep it be-
cause it would eat too much .
and ,after Cathey said it could
have part of her share of the' fam-
fly rations.,

NOW, YOU TAKE me I'm
the epitome of generosity. I set
the pattern for others to follow.
There's not a "conservative"" bone
in my body. I don't mind paying
a quarter for a loaf of bread .
or $1.00 for gallon of ice cream.
You'll find me willing to spend
this kind of money almost any-
time! I'll even pay $1.25 for a
haircut most days. This is after
recalling that Bob Laird, who ran
the barber shop on Main Street in
Shamrock, Okla., offered to cut
the hair of me and my four broth-
ers for a $1.25, if Momma would
send us all to the shop at one
'time.
There's not a frugal bone in


my body, when -it comes 'to mon-
ey, so ,I wouldn't fit in with this
group, any way you figure it.
My.unreserved nature is en-
tirely spent in matters of an
anonymous nature, but it's there,
just the same.

I'LL TELL YOU a little secret;
something you probably didn't
know.
One of that number, named
by Kes, as someone not likely to
spring for his or anyone else's
dinner, has built himself quite a
reputation for his lack of generos-
ity. It's coming up Valentine's
Day before long and he is plan-
ning to give his wife a Tootsie Pop
and tell her she should be satis-
fled to receive candy for the day

of lovers; some men only give
their wives flowers!
Kes was correct In placing
him on the list.
Another took his wife to see
her parents,' Christmas, and
bragged to her how good he was.


to her, giving her a week end
travelling out of state as a Christ-
mas gift.
One of the men is generous to
a fault, provided it is one of his
toys he is buying. I understand
John bought his wife a new bass'
boat for Christmas. He listed it in
her name so she cold claim it. .
. and. pay the registration fee,
each and every year! That's a
thoughtful husband, that is.

IT'S EASY TO TALK about
the generosity/frugality of others,
but it's something else tQ live with
these eccentric habits. I wonder
which wife among' this group is
happy, putting up with this type
of behavior from their mate?
Somewhere along the line I
can't help but believe they will get
even somehow. They may sur-
prise their husband one day and
tell him Just how much he needed
new drapes in the living room,
rather than a new outboard mo-
tor ... like mine didl

Ten Highlights of My Life
Have you ever thought of the happiest moments of your life? If
not, you are probably a lot younger than I. The older I get, the more
I think of the good things that have happened to me and wish I
could experience some of them again.
It's human nature, I think, to forget the adversities of our past
life. That's why a lot of us make the same mistakes over and over
again.
I was in a reflective mood this morning so I decided to jot down
the ten happiest moments of my life, as I remember them. They are,
in chronological order:
*The day I won my first fight. It happened after school when I
was in the 7th grade at Ferry Pass Elementary. My fighting career
went downhill after that and when I lost that big one In Jackson,
Mississippi, about 5 years later, I decided to retire. Besides. I had to
endure enough physical abuse playing football. From that day on
fighting took a back seat to love.
*The night I graduated from high school. It was a feeling that I'll
never forget; like I had Just-been released from prison. No more
classes to attend, homework to do. -papers to write and no more
tests to study. for. I had no idea what college would be like.
*That fall day in 1961 when we (the University of Southern Mis-
sissippi Golden Eagles) beat F.S.U. at their homecoming game in
Tallahassee. I was a senior and It was the highlight of my college
football career. I artl now a Seminole fan, except when they play
U.S.M.
*My first kiss. How could I, or anyone else, for that matter, for-
get their first kiss? It is easy for me to remember because I was al-
most grown. Things were a lot different in those days. It almost
scared me to death, but it sure was fun!
*The night in Natchez, Mississippi, when a man pulled a gun on
me. It was then that I realized that I should have played profession-
al football. How many people do you know who have out-run a bul-
let?
*The first day I saw my future wife. I was at Speed's Southern
Gulf in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, when she stopped in to buy gas. I
spoke to her but she ignored me. She didn't know she was giving
the "brush-off' to a living Dick Tracy. I found her and chased her
until she caught mel
*The day I was married. Those of you who are married know
what Imean. The days our children were born were also unforgetta-
ble. It's like remembering where you were the day President Kenne-
dy was shot, if you were around then.
*The day I was fired. It is, to date, the only job from which I
have been fired. I didn't realize it then, but it was the best thing
that could have happened to me. I am not a "corporate man" and
never will be. Besides that, the stress of that job was about to kill
me.
*The day our granddaughter was born. It is a love that is more
than a love, me and my Punkey.-Poo-PI
*January 10, 1995.,The day that I met and played a round of
golf with the country music legend. Tom T. Hall. My friend, Roy Sol-
omon, arranged it and I will be forever in his debt. Tom T. Hall.
What'a talented man of character he Is! Thanks for the memory,
Tom T.


Letters to the Editor



.,: Team is Truly

A "Class Act"


Dear Editor:
I never really liked basket-
ball. It move- too fast and there
,.are way too dlany points to keep
up with, but because of the video
technician for the high school. I
have been faced with attending
the St. Joe basketball team
games.
I now know what a double
dribble, traveling and trap mean.
I have been to almost every away
game, every home game and two
tournaments so far. I have been a.
good student of the game. I have
watched other coaches who cuss
and.throw fits during the game. I
have watched other teams who
try to start fights and are Just
plain rud e.
*My point- is this, this week-
end the St. Joe Tiger Sharks trav-

I was crawling into bed a
happy man when Cathy handed
me the phone. "I left out the most
important part.. My aunt didn't

signs all looked the same to her."
"Laura, how did she get off?"

She started out last week and

eled to Chipola to play two 6A
teams. Our old winning streak
had ended. It got me to start
thinking about our team and its
coaches. We have two terrific
coaches who respect their players
and who know how to coach bas-
ketball. They have class.
Our team plays hard, they
don't cause fights, they have fun
and they win games. They have
class.
Our fans cheer like no other.
with chants like "Uh Oh!" and
"Fire It Up St. Joe, Fire It Up."
They have class.
If you don't attend the local
basketball games, I invite you to
attend. It Is well worth the $3.00.
The Tiger Sharks do us proud
wherever they go. win or lose.
People are talking about the team
long after the game is over. Win-
ning streaks will always end and
be forgotten, but a team with
class Is a team that people don't
forget. -: .
Good luck St. Joe on the new
winning streak!

aren't made we in Gulf County.,. 0'-- '
- are going-to lose'that-privilege. px... LIJiU u -- '.-,'-. -'


The Mainagement'Area is our
children's last chance to realize
their dream of killing a trophy
buck, unless you own or lease
hunting land.
I wish someone could tell me
what part of a slash pine a deer
eats. Also why does the state even
bother having a biologist to sur-
vey the deer population yet never
does anything to help it.
We the hunters pay $20.00
for the privilege of hunting in Ed
Ball, and for what? Where a state
biologist can remove the jaw bone
of our 87 pound spike and tell us
he's four years old?
I seen the deer population de-
cline every year. I understand
that some of it is due to night
hunters and doe killers. But, a lot
has to do with the lack of food.
Is St. Joe Forest Products a
"non-profit" organization so hard
up for money that every square
foot of Management Area be
planted in pine trees? I think not.
I feel it is time we the hunters
demand that the Paper Co. set
aside land in the Management
Area for food plots. Even if the
hunters have to plant the food
plots themselves. I've talked to
several hunters who including
myself would be willing to donate
our own time and resources.
The Paper Co. has been a
part of Gulf County's history and
I hope they remain so. I also hope
they will be sympathetic toward
the people of Gulf County.
Thank you,
James L. Myrick

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 thari'two to three
days in bed.


UM:
U S E D
U...
am...
a....


* 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 $20 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.

1_ POTENCY IS AN
IMPORTANT QUALITY
No medicine can be really effective in curing an illness, if
it has, by the time it reaches your home, lost itp potency.
Just as certain foods can deteriorate if not kept properly, so
can medicines.
Some drugs must be refrigerated to retain their powers -
such as insulin, certain eye drops and many types of
vitamins. With other medicines exposure to light is the
culprit and special containers must be used to keep light
out. Every manufacturer of drugs supplies us with detailed
instructions on how best to preserve the potency of their
products, and we carefully follow their directions.

I Sharks Lose 2 to 6A Te


Port St Joe Shark's 31 game
win streak came to an abrupt end
in Marianna Friday night. The
Sharks ended their streak with
| the most tenacious performance
against 6A Miami Northwestern
in the Subway Shoot-Out Tourna-
ment, losing by a 73-68 score.
Facing a Miami team of "full
grown" boys., Port St Joe's stub-
born Sharks held on to a small
lead throughout the game with a
superb defensive effort. Ham-
pered by the loss of Damon Walk-
er and John Bryant, the Sharks'
long range artillery, they, never-
theless, gave the taller Miami
team all they wanted for a full 32
minutes of regulation play.
The Shark's lead wasn't very
large, but It was a lead of as
much as 10 points up until the
fourth quarter. Miami fielded a
team for the entire game measur-
ing anywhere from 6'5" to 6'8"
and they were not awkward el-
S their.


The Larry cousins buzzed
around the larger team like bees
around a syrup bucket, but the
number three state ranked team
prevailed and tied the score with
1.9 seconds remaining in the
game. Chad Quinn came to the
free-throw line for the Sharks at
this point, tired out from the
strain of competing with such a
tall team. With the score tied,
Quinn put up the first shot of a
one and one opportunity. missing
when his ball hit the right edge of
the rim, sending the game into
overtime. .
That was what Miami was
waiting for and with their pre-
dominate height, smothered the

points during the overtime, while
sinking seven.
Port St. Joe's Des Baxter
tried desperately to pull the game
out with a three point attempt
with only 30 seconds left. But his
shot missed and Miami's Watts
drew a foul, sinking his two free-
throws with 16 seconds left in the
overtime period. Baxter played
the game of his life bucketing 25

It has: been nearly two years
since the Sharks have lost two
games back-to-back and it took a
team of giants from' Miami and
the best team in Alabama-both
rated 6A-to do it.
Montgomery, Alabama's Rob-
ert E. Lee team held the Sharks
to their. lowest point total of the
season as they played flawless
basketball against the Sharks
Saturday afternoon in the tourna-
ment held at Chipola Junior Col-
lege gym in Marianna before
nearly 1,500 fans, half from Port'
SL Joe.
It was clear the Sharks were
.in a game 'against a foe which
was too much for them from the
very beginning. The Generals
jumped off to an, early lead and
held off several Shark runs
against their lead during the
game.
Robert E. Lee managed a 69-
55 win In what was probably
their lowest point production of
the year due, -to the Shark's
swarming defense. Still playing
without the services of their long-
ball scoring duo. John Bryant
and Damon Walker. the Sharks
just didn't have the fire power to
overcome the taller well-olled bas-
ketball machine from Montgom-
ery's Robert E. Lee High School,
ranked number one among 6A
schools in Alabama.
Chad Quinn was the Sharks
leading scorer with 15 points
Des Baxter and Jermaine Larry
added 10 while the Generals
Toberie Burton lead all scoring
with his 18 points.

According to Coach Vern Epi-
nette, 'The third quarter was our
demise in Friday's game against
Miami Northwestern. We missed
four lay-ups, but still could have
pulled the game out. Saturday
night, I felt that we had just run
out of gas against Robert E. Lee."

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, JAN. 26. 1995 PAGE 1B


Sharks Can


Play with


Anybody

........Eppinette


Vern Eppinette, coach of Port
St. Joe High School's number one
ranked Sharks, gave the Rotary
Club a little insight to the reason
for the Shark's considerable suc-
cess in basketball last Thursday.
Asked for the secret ingredient as
to why the team was possibly the
best cage team in Florida, Eppin-
ette responded: "It's because our
kids are willing to pay the price to
keep the pressure higher than the
other teams can stand for an en-
tire game, and never let up,"'
The team' has now won 31
games in a row, 'as of last Thurs-
day, counting their successive
wins last season also, which in-'
cluded winning the state champi-


onship at the end of the season.
The team is well on its way
toward winning its second
straight championship, and has
played some tough opponents
this season in preparation for the
state tournament. "The Christ-
mas tournament in Gainesville,
the Governor's Cup in Tallahas-
see and the North Florida Shoot-
out in Marianna '[last week end]
provided excellent opposition and'
gaining for the state champion-
ship tournament," the coach said.,
"We'll be meeting the two best
teams in Fibrida and Alabama,
regardless of rankings Friday and.
Saturday," Eppinette said, "which
will present us the best challenge


we have had all year."
The speaker had nothing but
praise for the abilities, work hab-
its and unselfish play of his
young charges this season. "we
don't know how good this team
is, because they have never
played to their full potential," he
said. "this team just plays as
hard as they can, for as long as
they can, then' we stick another
mian in and he goes as hard as he
can for as long as, he can. Nobody
can go for more than four or five
inuIIIILes. with the intensity we
play al." he continued..
Eppinette said the team has
given most of its practice alitten-1
tiord to defense thus far, in the.


season, "but we're now majoring
on offense and our shooting is be-
ginning to show it."
He said the team has come
this far without serious injury.
"we have two starters out with in-
juries, now--Damon Walker and
John Bryant-but they are re-
sponding to treatment, and
should be back in the lineup just
any day." the coach said. "Already
they have started practicing with
the team."
Eppinette reported to the
club that this year, the District
Tournament will be ,held in
Blountstown..


Use Some Yard Debris As A Valuable Mulch


SERVICE




Ph 227127


Pine needles, leaves, grass
Clippings and plant trimmings
have been collected, stuffed In
plastic bags and placed on the
curbside where they were collect-
ed and transported to landfills.
These materials accounted for 20
percent of the waste dumped in
landfills. Florida has passed legis-
lation that prohibits lined land-.
fills from receiving this so called
yard trash as of January, 1992.
Much of this yard trash.can be-
recycled on site as a mulch.
Pine needles, leaves and,
grass clippings can each be used
alone as a mulch or in a combi-
natUon. Of the three, pine needles
are the best mulching material.
They are attractive, not easily re-
moved from beds by wind or rain,
and don't "mat down" excessively.
However, they' don't last more
than 6 months due to rapid de-
composition. Leaves can be used
alone as a mulch, however, they
are difficult to keep In place in7
windy locations and are easily
washed from beds during heavy
rain showers. Leaves perform
best as a mulching material when
they are shredded and/or com-
posted. Grass clippings are the
least desirable mulching material.
They are easily-transported by
the wind. decompose very rapidly,
and pack down to form a mat
which can exclude air and water
from the root zone. They should
be spread thinly over the ground,
mixed with other mulching mate-
rials or better yet, composted
with other yard waste. Plant trim-'
mings such as twigs and small
branches should-be shredded be-
fore they are used as mulch. A
mechanical chipper/shredder is
S needed for this process.
Yard trash is readily available

in many yards and so it is a very
inexpensive source of mulch.
However, there is some reluc-
tance to use it as mulch because
it is not as attractive as some of
the more expensive mulch materi-
als. This problem can be over-
come by adding a thin layer of a
more uniform mulch over the
yard trash.
Mulch can be used around
plants in beds or around individ-
ual trees and shrubs in a lawn.
Eliminating grass from around
plants greatly reduces the compe-
tition for water and nutrients
from the turf and Increases -the -
growth rate and health of trees
and shrubs. When mulching Indi-
vidual trees in lawns, create a cir-
cle of mulch about two feet in dl-


amieter for each inch of trunk
diameter. Increase the size of the
mulched area as the tree grows.
Pull mulch one to two inches
away from the stems and trunks
of plants. The high moisture envi-,
ronment created by mulch in-
creases the chances of stem and
trunk rot which result In plant
death.
In addition to being useful
around plants, mulch can used.
as a ground cover for walks.
trails, drive ways and play and
natural areas. It can be used to
cover low-growing, tender plants
to protect them from frost injury.
Mulch can also be composed and
used as a soil amendment for
flower and vegetable gardens.
The amount of mulch to ap-
ply will depend on the texture
and density of the mulch. Com-
post and many wood and bark
mulches are composed of fine
particles and should not be ap-
plied any deeper than two to
three inches (after settling). Ex-
cessive amounts of these fine tex-
tured mulches around shallow-
rooted plants can suffocate their
roots causing chlorosis and
growth. Coarse textured mulches
such as pine needles and pine
bark nuggets, which allow good
air movement through them, can
be maintained at a depth of three
inches.


Cypress mulch, should be
maintained at a depth of two to
three inches since it appears to
have a high water holding capaci-
ty which may reduce the amount
of water reaching the plant root
zone.
Mulches composed solely of
leaves or grass clippings should
never exceed a two-inch depth.
These materials have flat surfaces
and tend to mat together restrict-
Ing water and air to plant roots.

An Example of Honor



and Integrity Was He

It's my custom to always write a little about Confederate General
Robert E. Lee wherever I am on. his birthday January 19-no matter
what ,
'No writer has ever been able to successfully trash Lee's life as a sol-
dier, husband and churchman or his devotion to duty,., honor and state.
His historic and most painful decision to go with his native Virginia and
Neighbors rather than make war being true to himself, his kin, and his
state. Old-fashloned words, like honor, duty, gentleman, lady, charity,-
even responsibility that marked Lee and his era :aren't heard much in.
modem America anymore. ,
But you know, they might be 'coming back. I've heard more'about
state and local rights and family values lately than I have since ;Iwas a
boy.

NEWS



b ROUND-UT TP:ap- '

by Jack Harper,


It's ironic that Lee's birthday comes in the same week of the birthday
, of Martin Luther King. Jr. The slow news day during the King Holiday ..
gives me a chance to think about Lee. I've given up on getting Florida to
declare a combined Lee-King day although the two had one thing In coin-
mon-an unfulfilled dream.
Lee's dream of a free South ias never realized. King's dream of a
"color blind" America in which all children in the nation will not be,
Judged by the color of their skin but by the content of theii character Is
also still unfulfilled.
The civil rights movement-once supported by many thinking and
honest people everywhere-is now widely viewed as just another special
interest group. Why? Because it shifted its focus from Individual rights
for all to group benefits for those who have painted themselves as victims
in a politically correct society.-
Those aren't my words, but are taken from a piece by Thomas R.,
Dye, research associate of the James Madison Institute and professor of',
government and public policy at Florida State University.
Funny thing, but my dad, a Georgia cracker who worked some 100.
blacks and 25 whites at a big sawmiill in Palatka where I was raised, once,
told me the same thing. 'They lost me when they told us to put our color-
blind glasses back on and give special treatment just for them," my dad
told me. He was known back then as a fighter for his black and white
workers against'the Yankee owners of the mill (Wilson Cypress Co.) from
Michigan. ,
Professor'Dye says the inspiring principle of equal protection for all
under the law has been lost in legal bureaucratic maze of goals, timeta-
bles, guidelines, and affirmative action programs. '
Amen.
"Americans now find themselves divided among two classes-those
who enjoy legal mandated preferential treatment and those who can law-
fully be discriminated against," Dye said. "Moreover, the resentment en-
gendered among those being discriminated against is leading to renewed
levels of racism and sexism." .
But there is hope, not by King marchers parading down the main
streets of America demanding another free chicken in their pot but by a
movement being started-wouldn't you know it-in a crazy place like Cal-
ifornia where a constitutional amendment is being proposed that would
give full civil rights to every Californian.
It prohibits race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin as a criteria
for either discriminating against or granting preferential treatment to any
individual or group in state employment, public education or public con-
tracting.
It would not restrict preference in treatment for socioeconomic disad-
vantage, physical disability, veteran status, or other legitimate criteria.
-Simply put, it would give full civil rights to all Americans which was
King's dream. Or so he said.




Capital News Round-Up


Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles unveiled a $39.9 billion no-new-tax bud-
get Thursday that stressed public safety, economic development and wel-
fare reform.
Up $1.1 billion or 2.8 percent from the current budget, it is the low-
est proposed budget increase in 20 years.
"This budget reflects our top priorities," Chiles said. "We will contin-
ue to make our streets safer, spend our tax dollars more efficiently and
work hard to create stable, high paying jobs."
To keep criminals behind bars'ldnger. Chiles recommends increasing
' risoh capaify t6' l'0 percent, with room for about 4,000 more inmates
In state correction facilities. The budget provides more money to lock up
and rehabilitate repeat juvenile offenders by creating 1.620 new slots to
detain juveniles and 920 slots for aftercare and other related programs.
The governor seeks a five-cbunty expansion of Florida's landmark
welfare reform projects in Escambia and Alachua counties. The $28.1
million expansion program would place a two year limit on benefits and
prepare recipients to enter the job market. It provides day care. job train-
ing and other services to people whose goal is to get off welfare and into
the work force.
Several budget recommendations boost the state's economic develop-
ment efforts by expanding the role of Enterprise Florida, a public-private
partnership began in 1992. Chiles would privatize the Department of
Commerce, giving Enterprise Florida a greater role. The changes are ex-
pected to result In 158 fewer positions and a net savings of nearly
$1 million.
The budget calls for 124,392 full-time positions for state government,
a two percent increase over last year. Almost all of the new positions are
in public safety and corrections, including 2,930 corrections employees
to staff new prisons being built and to supervise offenders in the commu-
nity, 142 new Florida Highway Pqtrol troopers and 53 probation officers.
Chiles said the elimination of 1,800 positions in reorganization
helped make the new positions possible.
The fiscal year begins July 1. The governor's budget Is merely the
starting point for negotiations. The Legislature, set to convene March 7
for its regular session, has the final say on final passage of the budget.

How about doing away with the death penalty? Background checks
on applicants for jobs Involving children and vulnerable adults? Or chop
20,000 older Floridlans out of nursing homes while eliminating drugs,
eye-glasses, dental work, crutches and wheelchairs for poor people?
Don't laugh. Those are some .of the suggestions coming from state
agencies here in Taxahassee who have been asked to come up with 25 -
percent budget cuts by the Florida. Senate.
How about letting each of the state's 10 universities act as private
non-profit businesses?
There's more. The Department of Environmental Protection would
wipe out the Marine Fisheries Commission, geology research, 'river and
bay clean-up grants, small-city sewerage grants, and a $75 million ayear-
program clean up groundwater contamination from. leaking .storage
tanks.
'The Department of Transportation said it would- slash rest area se-
curity and $590 million in highway improVements, sack regional trans-

it off.

Wile said, "Florida law man-
dates that deer hunters or those
that accompany them on all wild-
life management areas wear a
minimum 500 square Inches of
hunter orange clothing as an out-
er garment during all except the
early archery seasons. We strong-
ly encourage hunters to wear
- hunter orange on privately-owned
lands as well but it's not required
under the law."

Hexeplained t'at the typical
sleeveless hirtef orange vest is
slightly more than 600 square
inches In size, while a baseball-
style hunter orange cap is rough-
ly 150 square inches.
S"Hunter orange is a color that
does not exist in nature, is highly
visible and has no effect on deer
due to the fact they're color
blind," Wile emphasized. "Wear-
ing it just makes good sense."

portation boards, and reduce grants for city bus systems, rail, ports and
aviation.
It's a little like the local school board asking its superintendent to
propose budget cuts and immediately gets a suggestion to eliminate the
popular high school football team.
Gov. Lawton Chiles Joined the fray Friday with a suggestion that the
Legislature submit its budget to him so "they could fully share in this en-
deavor" by cutting their own budget that ,he says has increased by 41
percent since 1989 .,
Senate Ways and Means Chairman Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, who
asked the agencies for their 25 percent budget cut proposals. said he did
not want agencies to cut politically popular programs or cuts that would
scare people. Ha.
Health and Rehabilitative Services Secretaiy Jim Tbwey said a 25
percent cut in HRS would cost 8,000 In jobs and make Florida a 'Third
World" state.
BOATERS DID IT: Sewage dumped by holiday boaters caused the
outbreak of illnesses from eating ,oysters taken in Apalachicola Bay,
federal health officials said last week. Dr. Roger Glass, of the Nation-
al Center for Disease Control at Atlanta, said the virus that caused
the stomach and intestinal illness is present only in human sewage.
"The bay was .highly used by recreational boaters over the holiday
season," Class said.
Apalachicola Bay was closed to oyster harvesting Jan. 4. Addi-
tional illnesses have been linked to oysters taken in Galveston Bay,
Texas, which was closed Jan. 13.
CHEMICAL CASTRATION: Sen. Robert Wexler. D-Boca Raton, has
flied a bill that would mandate the injection of the female hormone Depo-
Provera on someone convicted a second time for sexual battery against a
child younger than 12. The drug treatment would control the sexually de-
viant urges. A similar bill passed the Senate last year but died in the
House.
Wexler isn't calling it "chemical castration." His name for it is "phar-
macological treatment."
CHILES' CHALLENGE: Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles suggested in his
budget to end free insurance for elected officials and reduce the retire-
ment credits In their pension from three percent to two percent, meaning
most would retire with smaller state pensions. The suggestion, of course.
has to be passed by Florida lawmakers before it can become reality.
Chiles Is using it to upstage Legislators in the coming battle over his plan
to use federal Medicaid money to help pay for health insurance for the
working poor. Chiles himself is covered free by the state plan. He also
has federal coverage for his family through deduction from his U.S. Sen-
ate pension.
DEVELOPER CHARGED: Robert W. Browning, an East-Palalka de-
veloper, was arrested last week on grand theft and racketeering charges.
Assistant Statewide Prosecutor Gina Smith said Browning diverted mon-
ey from projects In Suwannee and Leon counties to his own use. In 1992,
he pleaded guilty to grand theft for misusing about $180.000 in escrow
funds from a Tallahassee apartment complex.





Orane Makes Good




Sense for Hunters


Hunting accidents are well
publicized but the truth of the
matter is firearm accidents in-
volve relatively few hunters each
year. During Florida's 1993-94
season there were only 23 acci-
dents, with no fatalities, among
the estimated 250,000 hunters
who ventured afield.
While hunter education
courses are designed to make
hunters more safety conscious
overall, wearing hunter orange re-
duces the risk of hunters, being
mistake for a game animal, says
Lt. Carl-Wile.,-the Florida Came
and Fresh Water' Fish Conrfmis-
slon's hunter education coordina-
tor in northwest Florida.
Although the 1994-95 hunt-
ing season is just beginning," .
there have been six accidents in
the panhandle thus far and three
of those may have been prevented
had the parties involved been
wearing hunter orange," Wile
said.
In one of those hunting acci-
dents, a 29-year-old Crestview
man was shot and killed Nov. 27
on the Blackwvater Wildlife Area in
Okaloosa County by a member of
his hunting party after beingminis-
taken for a deer." Ironically, 'the
victim had been wearing a hunter
orange vest earlier but had taken
