Will SJP Mill be Placed on Market?

SMillAlongwith Other-Holdings ofAlfred 4.-duPont XTrust Being Considered for Sale

In a memorandum circulated Tuesday with-
in the local paper mill and box plant, it was an-
nounced that St. Joe Paper Company has re-
ceived a request from the trustees of the Alfred
I. duPont Testamentary Trust to consider dis-
posing of certain of its assets for full value. The
assets would include the mill and box plants
used in its Forest Products Division, St. Joe's
communications businesses, and St. Joe's sug-,
ar business. Talisman Sugar Company in south
Florida. The Trust is the owner of approximate-
ly 69% of the outstanding stock of St. Joe
Paper Company. The communications business
is composed primarily of St. Joseph Telephone
Company, Gulf Telephone Co. and Florala Tele-
phone Co. in Florala. Alabama.
In response to the request from the Trus-

tees, St. Joe's Board of Directors acted Tuesday
to form a special committee of the Board, com-
posed of outside directors to consider the re-
quest of the Trustees and make recommenda-
tions to the St. Joe Board of Directors as to the
action to be taken in response.
According to the memorandum circulated
St. Joe is engaged in five lines of businesses,
forest products, transportation, communica-
tions, sugar and real estate. The recommenda-
tion to sell the; forest products, communica-
tions and sugar lines would result in the
disposal of the three making the least amount
of profit for the Trust. The Forest Products divi-
sion accounted for 56 percent of the total reve-,
nues but only generated three percent operat-
ing profit. The communications division

accounts for four percent of the total revenues
and the sugar division eight percent with'each
generating 10% operating profit. The two most
profitable divisions, transportation with 26% of
total revenues and real estate with six percent
of total revenues, generated 46% and 31% op-
erating profit respectively. All figures are based
on 1994 revenue figures. I
St. Joe's transportation business consists
of its 54.5 percent ownership of Florida East
Coast Industries, Inc., which operates the Flori-
da East Coast Railroad from Jacksonville to Mi-
ami. Florida East Coast is also the parent of
Gran Central Corp., a real estate development
On Tuesday St. Joe reported stronger earn-

ings for the fourth quarter. St. Joe earned
$18.8 million, or 61 cents a share, in the quar-
ter, up from $8.8 million, or 29 cents a share.
the year before. Revenues rose from $153.5
million to $186.3 million.
According to Winfred L. Thornton, chief ex-
ecutive officer of St. Joe and one of the seven
duPont trustees, the improved earnings result-
ed from increases in paper prices. For all of
1994, St. Joe earned $42.1 million, or $1.38 a
share, up from $32.6 million, or $1.07 a share,
-in 1993. Revenues were $685.8 million last

sion is bound by state law to
maintain an equal number of vot-
ers in the county's voting dis-
Hammond also is the chair-'
man of the county's Redistricting

Committee, formed to look into
realigning the districts to comply
with state regulations. 'Two dis-
tricts in the county are way out of
line, they are as much as 60 to
65% larger than the outer county
districts when they should be
within 12% In order to conform to
state guidelines," Hammond said.
The problem revolves around
the fact that the Gulf County
Commission is under a federal
court mandate to establish a mi-
nority district, District Four, just
like the Gulf County School
Board whose members are also
decided by the single member dis-
trict voting process. According to
Hammond the School Board does
not fall under the same state
guidelines requiring equal num-
bers of voters in their districts.
Hammond told the Board that the
School Board has not shown the
committee any interest in chang-
ing the district boundaries:
Hammond explained if the
School Board didn't want to
change district boundaries along
with the County Commission,
then the county would have to set
up two sets of districts in order to
comply with state guidelines. One
set would remain as is for the
School Board, and another set
with equal numbers for the
County Commission.
Hammond said the commit-
tee had been looking at a combi-
nation of single member districts
and at-large voting districts for
County Commissioners' elections

Small Counties Coalition

Gulf County Commissioner
Warren Yeager has been named
as Chairman of the Small County


The Coalition's main thrust is
addressing problems that small
counties in the state have in be-
ing an effective voice in govern-
Currently the group is ad-
dressing 'the net ban issue, which
goes into effect July 1, and how it
will impact the counties associat-
ed with fishing.
Yeager, in a news conference
in Tallahassee Monday, said
many small counties face wide-
spread unemployment, business
closures, defaults on personal
and business loans, and a surge
in social service expenses, noting
that economic losses in excess of
$100 million were predictable.
Coalition leaders spoke to the
Governor and Cabinet on Tues-
day seeking their assistance in
preparing for the impact the* net
ban will have on the economies of
small counties throughout the

sets of districts. Under 'the plan
the minority district would re-
',main intact as a single member
district, while the remaining com-
mission posts would be decided
by the at-large voting' press.
Gulf County voter" decided
by a 78% majority in a straw bal-
lot a few years back that they
would like for the county to -ex-
plore returning to the at-large
voting system. The major problem
would be a possible court battle if
the plan were to meet stiff resis-
tance from the minority' district.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
asked District Four Commission-
er Nathan Peters, Jr. if he intend-
ed to be open-mined to the com-
mittee's recommendations.
Peters responded, "I will only
agree to follow the law and that
says districts have to be equal in
numbers, other than that we'll
have to go to court."
The Board further discussed
the possibility of establishing two
single member districts and three
'at-large districts, asking Comm.
Peters what his thoughts would
be on that idea. Peters said that
he would look at District Two re-
maining a, single member district
along with his district with the
other three changing to at-large

property, delivered by county
trucks to aid members of District
Two only. He charged that the as-

that Traylor was using the as-

The advocate revealed in his
report that Traylor did not seek
personal gain when he arranged
free milled asphalt deliveries for
residents in his district.
'There is no evidence of cor-

Congrats Eppy!

HEAD BASKETBALL COACH Vernon Eppinette of Port St.
Joe High School has achieved an honor conferred on him by his
peers through the Florida Sport News, which deserves to be pub-
And Coach Eppinette deserves to be roundly congratulated
for his achievement.
In all likelihood, coach Eppinette will take an "Aw Shucks!"
attitude toward receiving his honors; most people who receive
such awards, do. Coach Eppy thought he was just attempting to
guide his young charges to their second consecutive state cham-
pionship and these people come along and interrupted him with
an honor for what he's doing and how he did it.
THE COACH CAN TRULY be proud of this achievement he
didn't realize he was attaining. It is a "state championship" of
sorts, too. The award is for being the best basketball coach in 3A
ranks for the entire state of Florida! As the late coach Marion
Craig used to say, 'That takes in a lot of territory the other side
of Wewa!"
We consider it quite an achievement for our basketball team
to win the state championship. To us, that means our team:is
better at playing basketball than all the other class 3A teams in
the entire state, from Pensacola to Key West.
When a coach is honored for statewide superlatives, it is an
even greater, singular achievement, since he had to do whatever
he did to receive the award, by himself. A team member has the
other members of his squad helping him.
COACH EPPINETTE, IS ANOTHER of a fine line of coaches
we presently have and have had in the past here in Port St. Joe.
The Superintendent and the School Board put personal example
and good citizenship right up there at the top of the requirement
list for a person when looking for a coaching replacement. As a
consequence, we have always had stellar performers here who
regularly turn out good teams with enviable records, even if they
don't win state championships every year.
The reason for the quality product turned out by coach Vern
Eppinette and all the rest of the coaches at Port St. Joe High
School is because they instill good citizenship, good sportsman-
ship and good solid Christian morals in their charges along with
the rudiments of dribbling, blocking, shooting, hitting, catching
and tackling.
Not to take anything from Eppinette's award, it is truly a
high honor for him. But, with those aims before him every day
he is in charge of our sons and daughters, how can he help but
achieve success in his profession?

Brotherly Love

LAST WEEK, THE nation of Pakistan was bent on executing
a teen-ager and his uncle for writing christian slogans on a Mus-
lin temple wall.
Death! For graffiti! That's pretty harsh treatment for some-
thing Arabs and other foreigners do to American walls, fences
and highway bridges every day. It also reminds us that maybe
caning is hot sucha',harsh penalty afternall. It was for scratching
the sife -'of a couple of cars which earned -an American, teen-
ager an official caning as punishment last year and drew a swell
of outrage from much of the civilized world. The consensus of
Americans, however, was that with caning applied to his posteri-
or, it would be a long time before he considered defacirng some-
one else's property ,
YOU'WON'T FIND many Americans, however, .who would
stand still for the death penalty being applied for the act of writ-
ing even muslim slogans on the side of Christian churches. We
.even balk, officially at giving the death penalty to muslims who
blow up our Trade Center in New York City.
This case, in Lahore, Pakistan, involving a 14-year-old youth
should convince us that a muslim outlaw; especially, places no
value on human life; especially on lives of those other than mus-
lims. We should not even harbor any second thoughts 'about
keeping a person or persons who would blow up a crowded cen-
ter at random, locked up away from society because he will sure-
ly carry out his intent if allowed the freedom to do so.
A CHANGE OF HEART was displayed by the Pakistan courts
toward the teen-ager. They couldn't find a witness who would re-
peat the alleged words contained in the graffiti so they had no
eye-witness. They dropped the charges. But the outrage of the
Pakistani muslims over their. own. court's actions should con-
vince us we are not dealing with rational people here.

Jesse Wasn't No Help At All

Ume we run into each other.
Cathy got sick first. I think I

was waving good-bye when I felt a
small twinge way down at the
bottom of my throat. Ah, just a

Cathy wouldn't be back until
Tuesday night. She timed it just
right! She knew all along I was
going to be sick. I began to alter-

chills. That little Keebler guy
stopped making cookies and went
to banging on the inside of my
head with a sledge hammer he'd
borrowed from John Henry. Hon-
eymooners gathered around my
house to gawk at my nose-they
had the wrong falls! I couldn't get
up. I couldn't move!
"Help! Jess, JeSS, JESS .

A Few Words About Work
A few years back a friend and/or an interested reader sentme
the following:
"Work is man's great function. He is nothing, he can do noth-
ing, 'he can achieve nothing, fulfill nothing without working. If you
are poor, work. If you are rich, continue working. If you are bur-
dened with seemingly unfair responsibilities, work. If you are hap-
py, keep right on working. Idleness gives room for doubts and fears.
If disappointments come, work. If your health is threatened, work.
When faith falters, work. When dreams are shattered and hope
.seems dead, work. Work as if your life were in peril. It really is, No
matter what alls you, work. Work faithfully, work with faith. Work
is the greatest remedy for both mental and physical afflictions."
The sender of the above didinot sign his name and there was no
author's name at the top or bottom of the writing. I have no way of
knowing who wrote the article, but I believe it was written about my
My father, Fred Howard Campbell, had one hobby: He loved
workI I'm not putting you- on, either. Ask any of my brothers and
sisters. They will tell you the same thing.
All of the children had to work. If we were too young to work in
the fields, we were put to work raking the yard, picking up pecans
or gathering eggs from the chicken pen.
In the summer-time, we often worked from daylight to dark-
thirty. We would work in fields from early in the morning until it
was so hot we couldn't stand it and we would get, a "break" for
about three hours. We would then work until after the sun went
down. After that we would feed the stock, eat supper, get a bath
and go to bed.
Believe me, we were ready for bed about the time the chickens
went to roost. Even if we felt like going out, we didn't because it was
"early to rise" the next morning.
I'm a little like my father. I often get up before daylight and I.
love to work but not as much as the writing above suggests. I
think 'there Is a definite lack of a work ethic in our society today.
The problem is. I think, that everybody wants a job' and a pay-day,.
but very few want to work for either.
That is bad to a certain extent, but it opens the door of oppor-':
tunity for those who do want to and will work. I often heard the say-
ing. "It's never crowded at the top." And it's notl ,., ,
But'stLll, I think one can work too much. I'm not about to agree
with the unknown author of the above, that work solves everything.
It can create problems also. ,
Take my-. father, for instance. When he was sick, which was
most of my life, and couldn't work, he chose to watch work. My next
oldest brother and I would do the work and my father would watch.
When we became teenagers and "knew it all", his watching us work
created some serious problems. Show me a teenager who loves for a
parent to watch him or her do a chore and I'll show you some wa-
terfront property in Arizona.
Come to think of it, I believe my father did write that piece

Breast Feeding


Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Breast milk is the ideal food for the human infant. There are
different amounts of fats, protein and lactose in the milk of different
species of animals. Thus, the slogan "Breast milk for babies and
cow's milk for calves".
A mother who plans to breast feed should be in good health
and maintain a nutritious diet which should be supplemented with
Initiating breast feeding is sometimes not too easy. The mother
needs encouragement and help from the father and from someone
experienced with breast feeding. This can be either a medical
person or some family member or friend who has been successful in
breast feeding.
Along with a nutritious diet, it should go without saying, a
breast feeding mother should not smoke or use illegal drugs.
It will often take 2-3 weeks for a new mother to establish her
milk supply and feel confident with what she is doing. During this
period it is helpful to use extra water and some supplementary
formula if the baby is hungry.
Some people think the, straw colored secretions present in the
early days of breast feeding are not' nutritious. This liquid is called
colustrum and is equally nutritious for babies. The colustrum also
is full of antibodies which help to protect the infant from infectious
No longer is it expected for a mother to "lose one tooth with
each baby". With proper dental care and a supplemented nutritious
diet a mother can breast feed and remain in good condition herself.
If a mother is concerned about maintaining her correct weight,.
(and all should be concerned) this I can be accomplished while:
breast feeding. No one uses as many calories as a breast feeding.
mother unless. it is someone physically digging ditches. Most
women will lose 10-12 pounds with the birth of their baby. Any
additional weight will have to be gradually worked off.
Some mothers use breast feeding as the excuse to overeat. "I
have to eat so I can feed the baby." These mothers end up, obese,,
tired and unhappy. Moderation! -A careful diet with gradual
increase in physical activity coupled with breast feeding should see
the mother back in shape after 5-6 months.
Families with limited incomes would fare better if the money
available was spent on good f6od for the nursing mother and other
family members than on a baby formula.
Nothing puts the end to breast feeding as quickly as having a
mother who has been up every 2 hours feeding her baby. She is
exhausted and needs to rest The father or some family member can
usually give some supplementary formula at this time. After her
rest mother will feel like continuing the feeding.
A mother's milk supply is usually lowest in the late afternoon or
early evening. It will often work well to have mother go to bed
immediately after dinner at 6:00 or 6:30 and have father give a
bottle feeding at 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. By 1:00 or 2:00 a.m., mother
has had a long period of rest and will be able to cope.
We will usually advise a breast feeding mother to, avoid
excesses of onion, garlic, chocolate, brussell sprouts or cauliflower.
There may be other foods the mother feels that upsets her baby
every time she eats it but the previous list includes the usual
Things to encourage are liquids of all kinds water, juice,
soups, weak tea, beer. This helps milk production.
Instead of supplementary formula some people would prefer to
use breast milk. If a mother wants to do this she can hand express
or pump her breasts after each feeding and collect bottles of breast
milk. The milk can be placed in clean bottles and put in the freezer.
If you have a small amount In one bottle more can be added each
time some is expressed or pumped until the bottle is full. When
ready to use Just thaw and feed.

Carter Gives Tips for

Spring Gardeners

Extension Agent Roy Carter
spoke to the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day, giving them some advice on
caring for their awakening lawn,
shrubbery and fruit trees and giv-
Ing some advice on which trees to
plant in the section of Florida, for
best results.
Carter said, "If 'you haven't
pruned your shrubs and fruit
trees yet, you're too late now..
Pruning fruit trees and flowering
shrubs now will result in cutting
off young blooms and set fruit"
The .agent said trees may be
trimmed slightly, to shape them
up but part of the price which
has to be paid is loss of some of
'its fruit.
He advised not planting cer-
,,tain strains of .peach, apples,
plums and pecans in Gulf
County. 'We don't have enough
cold to accommodate most of the
more common fruit trees, such as

All Calls Confidential

Elberta peaches and most com-
mon apples. About the only ap-
ples and peaches which will grow
here are Dorsett Gold and Anna.
Peaches should stick with Florida
Golds. Even these aren't desirable
because they require too much
care to make them flourish. Root
rot will get them after just two or
three years if extreme care isn't
Muscadines need fertilizing
now, he said. with an application
of one pound of 8-8-8 fertilizer for
each year of age, with a maxi-
mum of 15 pounds.
Fertilize your lawn at the first
'sign of green after March 15. For
best results, use a 10-10-10 ferti-
lizer. 'You can get good results by
using a 15-4-8 or a 15-0-15, for-
mula," he said.
Mole crickets are prevalent in
this area and can devastate' a
lawn almost overnight. The young
hatch out' in late May and early
June and the parent dies off.
'This is the time to most effective-
ly eradicate this pest," Carter
said. 'They flourish in wet weath-
er, so don't wait 'until you see
signs to go to war with this in-
sect. The best treatment readily
available is Dursban or Diazinon.
The Diazinon is also effective
against other lawn pests. ,Both
chemicals must be used accord-
ing to directions to be effective.

Tyndall AFB and NCSS Survive Cuts

Cong. Pete Peterson Announced Tuesday of This Week

Congressman Pete Peterson
announced this week that Tyndall
Air Force Base and the Naval
Coastal Systems Station, both lo-
cated in Panama City, are NOTT
slated for closure by the Penta-
In a release dated February,
28, Peterson stated, 'This morn-,
ing, the Secretary of Defense, Wil-
liam Perry, released his recom-
mended list for the final round of
base closures. I am very pleased
to announce that' Tyndall Air
Force Base and the Naval Coastal
Systems Station are safe. Tyndall
will gain 344 civilian and 53 mili-
tary personnel over the next five
years, while the Naval Station will
gain 28 civilian and 42 military
personnel. The Secretary will now
send the list to the Defense Base
Closure and Realignment Com-
mission (BRAC) for final approv-
Peterson credited the exclu-
sion of Tyndall and Coastal Sys-
tems Station from the closure list
to the fact that the Air Force Base
and the Naval facility are irre-,
placeable, essential military as-
sets, and to the outstanding ef-

forts of the Bay County BRAC
Committee, the Chamber of Com-
merce and other community lead-
ers and organizations who
worked so hard to ensure that
the Department of Defense's eval-
uation data was accurate and
complete. *'A lion's share of the
credit must go to the entire Bay
County community for support-
ing Tyndall and Coastal Systems
Station, and the thousands of
military' personnel assigned
there," Peterson said. "The tire-
less efforts of all those involved
demonstrated to the Pentagon
how much Panama City and
North Florida support the bases
and how much the United States
depends on both facilities for Its
national security."
Over the past two years, Pe-
terson has repeatedly spoken
with the White House and met
with the Secretary of Defense and
other high-ranking Pentagon offi-
clals to ensure that all military fa-
cilities in North Florida received
fair and careful consideration

'qTews On (Dental health

Lo Beware The


Maybe you think perfectly
aligned teeth are an ideal that
everyone should aspire to with
the help of their dentist. But it
is not unusual for teeth to shift
out of line somewhat as people
get older. Even teeth that
seem to be lined up-perfectly
in childhood or adolescence
may not remain that way when
a person reaches adulthood.
This is a natural consequence
of their use in chewing food.
Some teeth tend to pivot or jut
out slightly, though this may
not be very noticeable to, the
unpracticed eye. Unless there
is malocculsion (improper bite
problem), a minor misalign-
ment may not be a serious
For this reason, it is not

recommended that anyone
past the age of 15 select even,
white teeth for partial or full
dentures. If they are TOO even
or TOO white they will not look
natural and will not make a
. person look younger. Let your
dentist help you select den-
tures that appear natural in
color, shape and size. Good
false teeth do not beg to be
seen. When they fit well and
look natural, hardly anyone will
notice the difference.

Alumni Stops Sharks In Preseason Game

Saturday Climax of Annual 100 Innings of Baseball, Ending Spring Training
The Sharks baseball team completed its annual 100 innings A
of baseball Saturday, completing their spring training tune-up
for the regular season which was to begin Tuesday afternoon.
The opening game was rained out and will be made up at a later
The "100 innings" is also a fund-raiser for the team with var-
ious sponsors signing up for each of the innings of baseball. The
marathon started Thursday afternoon and continued through
the annual alumni game Saturday. Former members of the
Sharks' squad compete with the current team of varsity players, '
and the Junior Varsity, as they play the "old men" of Shark E A 1
baseball. '

Despite the mighty str-g-
gles ,of the current Shark
team, the alumni came out on
top of a 12-4 score. The high-
light of the game was a tower-
ing R. D. Davis three-run
homer off of Shark ace, Ryan.
Yeager had been taunting
Davis as being toofat and too
old to give the alumni a "real"
When Davis powered a
fast ball pitch over the left
field fence, he remarked to
Yeager, as he trotted around
the base paths, shaking a fin-
... ger in Yeager's direction,
laughing every step of the
way, "I hit pretty good for a fat
old man, don't you think?"
On the previous 'pitch
Yeager had caused Davis to
"ball out" of the batter's box
with a sharpi-breaking curve;
a feat which drew peals of
laughter from both squads.
The alumni game Satur-
day was dedicated to Terry
Parrish, a former member of
the Sharks' baseball squad.
The team appreciates the
support they received during
their annual 100 innings of
baseball activity.
The Sharks are scheduled
to meet Bristol in Shark stadi-
um Friday afternoon at 4:30
Tuesday, March 7, the
squad is scheduled to play at
Carrabelle at 7:00 p.m.

Booth Launches Successful Navy Career

by Elizabeth Jones
Onboard USS Arleigh Burke-
-Dozens of officers and sailors are
seated at terminals in the dimly
lit combat information center of
this modem U.S. Navy warship.
Wearing headsets with micro-
phones, they communicate with
others onboard ship as they push
a variety of lighted buttons and
switches on the consoles in front.
of them. The room is quiet and
the concentration is intense-they
are preparing to launch a missile..
Exciting? Yes, but It's all in a
day's work for Grady Booth, son
of Grady and Lucretia Booth of
Wewahitchka and son-in-law of
Ben Gay, of Port St Joe. Booth, a
1983 graduate of Pace High
School, in Pace, is a fire control
technician onboard USS Arleigh
Burke, the first ship in a line of
modem U.S. Navy destroyers.
As a fire control technician,
Booth has a key role on the ship's
computer-based AEGIS weapons
system, which is the heart of the
ship's warfighting capability. The
system centers around a powerful
radar that enables the crew to de-
tect, track and fire on more than
a hundred targets.at a time.
"I work on. operate and repair
various electronic equipment as-
sociated with firing missiles, In-
cluding the computers, radars
and other systems," said the sec-'
ond class petty officer. "I also
work on illuminators, which radi-
ate a frequency beam onto a tar-
get" Important, because it's the
frequency beam that guides the
ship's missile to the target
'We can defend against in-'
coming anti-ship missiles up to
80.miles away," he ;said. For him
though, the most exciting part of
the job is actually being able to
fire the ship's missiles.
"I enjoy the challenge of re-

tense and quiet in the combat in-

_tme ofwar.,"
Booth joined the Navy in'
1990 at the age of 25. After work-
ing in a paper mill for four years,
he decided he was ready for a
change in life style. The Navy was
a natural choice, because he was
raised in a Navy family.
"'Dad was enlisted as a Chief
Electronic Technician." he :said.
"'He picked up Chief Warrant Offi-
cer, and then (was commissioned
as a) Limited Duty Officer (an offi-
cer who specializes In a technical
area). He retired after 20 years as
a lieutenant."
Although, Booth joined with
.an associate's degree in occupa-

tional electronics, it took a lot of
special schooling to prepare him
for the technology on his ship. He
received 17 months of training in
'advanced electronics and Har-
poon (missile) maintenance
schools, and a lot of ship-board
on-the-Job training. He said the
schools were tough, but he had
support from his wife, the former
Paula Gay, of Port St. Joe, to
whom he's been married for four
"My wife works at a depart-
ment store. She's very indepen-
dent, and willing to go along with
whatever makes me happy," he
said. In addition to her support,
'Booth says he also had a finan-
cial incentive to do well in school.
"I was guaranteed a spot in
electronics school and a (mone-
tary) bonus after graduation," he
,said. "The Navy schools were a
challenge and demand-
ing.sharder than any college
courses I ever took."
One goal he has already ac-
complished is earning his surface
warfare specialist pin, which re-
sembles a ship flanked by two
crossed swords. The pin signifies
that Booth has a working knowl-
edge of all the systems onboard
the ship.
Booth has also set other
,goals for himself too. They in-
clude continuing to advance in,
rank. "I plan to retire as high as I
can. I want to follow in my dad's
footsteps and obtain a commis-
sion. After the service, I'd like to
become an electrical engineer."
Sailors assigned to Arleigh
Burke-class destroyers are often
.'hand-picked after demonstrating
they have what It takes to suc-
ceed. So, like the 'missiles he
helps launch and guide steadily
to their targets. Booth is success-
fully tracking towards his goals.

Sea Turtle License Plate

Being Proposed for State

Supporters of a proposed sea
turtle license plate for Florida re-
ceived good news earlier this
month from Speaker of the House
Peter Rudy Wallace (D-52) and
Senator Howard Forman (D-32).
Both legislators agreed to sponsor
bills in 1995 that would make the
sea turtle tag a reality.
. .. 'We are very opUtimistic about
our changes hoW," "said David
Godfrey, Program' Director of the"
Gainesville-based Sea Turtle Sur-'
vival League, who is 'coordinating
the license plate effort, "An artist
has created a truly beautiful, li-
cense plate that all Floridians
should embrace, and ,now we
have sponsors to champion our
bill.' .
According to .Godfrey, his
group needs about :4,000 more
.people to sign a petition in sup-
port of the sea turtle plate before
the Legislature takes up the.
measure in early March. Before
approving a new license tag, the
legislature requires 8,500. signa-'
tures from Floridians who pledge
to purchase the plate when it be-
comes available.
'We are urging everyone who
supports the new sea turtle tag to
call us at (904) 373-6441 to get a
peutiton form," Godfrey said.
"Time is running short, and we
have come too far'to fail now."
The new license plate is need-
ed, supporters say,, to provide
funding for the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion's under-funded Marine Tur-
tle Protection Program.
The sea turtle tag would oper-
ate like the current manatee and
panther plates. The tags would be
available to. .vehicle owners

In 1991...the legislature
passed the! Marine Turtle Protec-
tion Act, which established laws,
protecting the five sea turtle spe-
cles, occurring in Florida waters.
The Act also created the Marine
Turtle Protection Program, which
was charged with enforcing sea
turtle regulations and coordinat-
ing recovery plans for depleted
turtle populations. However, the
Act failed ,to establish a secure
funding source for the program.
Program supporters have strug-
gled each -year to secure even
bare-minimum funding. As a re-
sult, sea turtle research, manage-
ment and enforcement efforts
have been limited, Godfrey says.
While raising awareness
.about Florida's sea turtles, the
sea turtle plate would provide the
annual funding necessary for.
DEP's Marine Turtle ,Program to
continue its critical mission.
"In the continental United
States, over 90% of all sea turtle
nesting occurs on Florida beach-
es-making sea turtle survival in
the U.S. dependent upon Flori-
da's commitment to protecting
turtles," Godfrey said. "That com-
mitment can be fulfilled if Floridi-
ans will support the proposed sea
turtle license plate."

Parents Make the Difference
What can a parent do to help
a child enjoy math and excel in
the subject?
S,*. Do ask your child's teacher
about the kinds of help your child
should get at home.
Do reward your child with
praise for the correct answer.
This builds self-confidence.
' Don't tell your child that
some people aren't good at math.
Never tell them that you are not
good at math, no matter how low
your opinion is of your own math

Battle of the Budget

to Highlight Session

Proposed Bill Would Suspend Under
21 Drivers with .02 Blood Alcohol
Governor Lawton Chiles-after winning the closest gubernatorial
race in Florida history with about $5.7 million in tax money from a pub-
lic campaign law he sponsored-went big time last week with a $1.43
billion lawsuit against tobacco companies for running up the state's
cost in treating smoking illnesses of welfare patients.'
This time private lawyers working for the state and Chiles' health-
care reform program would reap the profits if the slick law he and some
Insider cronies slipped through the Legislature without debate last year
lets him Win again.
The lawyers-some of Florida's most noteworthy-could reap $350
million in fees due to the up to 30 percent commission 'the state allows
them under the new law. If they lose, of course, nothing. But win or
lose, it will not cost Chiles or the state anything.
The real whammy is that the law re-arranges the playing field, by
removing the main defense of tobacco companies in the past that some
of the blame for health problems falls on the smoker. It aims right at
the deep-pocket companies with judgements based on their market
share and not their percentage of fault. In other words Phillip Morris
will have to pay its market share of the damage even if the Medicaid pa-
tient was smoking Camels.
Under the new law, the state doesn't have to prove that tobacco
caused the illness specifically only that statistics show a percentage of a
certain type of illnesses, are caused by smoking.
How much of the whammy Chiles can keep is in question as there
are at least three bills filed in the Legislature already to repeal the law,
. known as the Medicaid Third-Party Liability Act.
Chiles said he will veto any bill repealing it but has agreed to nar-
row its scope to apply only to tobacco companies. Dexter Douglas, his
general counsel, said it would be constitutional to aim it solely at the to-
bacco industry because "tobacco is the only legal product that leads to
How about the liquor industry? Or the fast fat food greasy sand-
wich industry and the ranchers who raise the products they use that
build up high cholesterol, throttles blood flow and causes heart at-
Business groups say the 'law exposes every manufacturer of almost
any product to unconstitutional lawsuits and would set off an ava-
lanche of litigation in which lawyers would be the principal beneficiar-
Chiles authorized the tobacco suit filing last week before leaving on
a trip to South Africa. It makes you wonder. What's next? He may come
: back with a plan to tax South.African diamond companies to support
,the ancestors of slaves who were brought to Florida. He-coons walk be-
fore the light of day, you know, and nobody but the red necked hoot owl
knows what they're gonna do next.
This old reporter has no sympathy for tobacco, having lost two
brothers to it and given up smoking In 1987 after 50 years of puffing
pipes and cigars. But the spectacle of a lifelong career politician-
himself a lawyer-singling tobacco out in a scheme, that will bring him
political approval and enrich a bunch of lawyers makes me nervous. I
worry about government's attempt to save.us from ourselves.

Capitol News Round-Up:
What could be one of Florida's most eventful Legislative sessions
begins next week under conservation agendas sponsored by both par-
ties that calls for tax caps, plans to privatize some public schools, allow
voluntary student-led prayer, and put healthy welfare recipients to
work. ,
The Senate Ways and Means Committee has approved a joint reso-
.lution (25-7) to require two-thirds of the House and Senate to hike taxes
that now only takes a majority. All the Republicans favored the amend-
ment. Democrats joining them were Charles Williams, Tallahassee;
George,.Kirkpatrick, Gainesville; and James Hargrett, Jr., Tampa.
The biggest battles in the budget will be the amount of funding for,
education and prisons. Most of the pre-session fireworks has come from
state agencies objecting:to the Senate committee's insistence that they
submit budgets with 25 percent reductions.
Waiting offstage are three bills that have been filed seeking funding
from existing revenues or new taxes to have convicted criminals serve
85 percent of their sentences. Most political observers feel prisons will!
win over education when it gets down to push and shove because the
public views crime as the state's biggest problem.
Some counties are requesting in pre-filed bills to be allowed to set
up Charter Schools, run by private education companies under con-
tracts to school boards. Several others want to be considered in tax
voucher programs that would allow students to take their tax dollars-
more for the poor-to private schools of their choice. Another proposal
from the Higher Education Committee, chaired by Sen. Kirkpatrick,
would pay private schools to take some -students from Florida's over-
crowded nine state universities.
Cov. Chiles is trying to beat the conservative Senate and House to
the punch by proposing his pilot programs In Alachua and Escambia
counties to put welfare recipients in Jobs be extended to five more
counties. It is being watched closely by President Bill Clinton who
wants to change "welfare as we know it" nationally. He is also calling for
a slash of existing government rules by 50 percent.
S ZERO TOLERANCE: A Senate committee last week passed a bill-
co-sponsored by Sen. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Spring Hill-that would
automatically suspend licenses of drivers under 21 whose blood-alcohol
level is 0.02 or higher. One beer would likely hike a teenager's level to
an 0.02 reading.
A similar bill passed the Florida House last year' and 'was left hang-
ing in the Senate. Sen. Waite said she expects it to pass both Houses in
the regular session of the Legislature.
ELECTION LAW CHANGES? Public financing of statewide election
campaigns would be drastically cut in a Senate bill, but the plan that
gave Gov. Lawton Chiles a big push in his narrow victory against Jeb
Bush would not be abolished outright. ...
Instead, a compromise was put in the proposed bill before the Sen-
Sate Elections Committee that would provide public 'money to candidates
only when an opponent has exceeded the $2-million and $5-million lim-
its set in the cabinet and governor races.
Chiles' Chief of Staff, Tom Herndon, told the committee the govern-
or would not accept changes in the public campaign financing law and
would veto It.
The proposed bill would'also eliminate the second primary in state-
wide races, giving the office to the winner of the first primary without a
runoff. Under present law, the first primary winner must have a majori-

The. committee is also grooming a bill that would require campaign
telephone callers to identify themselves and the organization that paid
for the solicitation.
"PAID TO. LIE." That's the charge the three children of suspended
Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison has been leveled against a dozen wom-
en who testified against him in January at the trial in which he was
convicted on. charges of demanding oral sex for privileges from them
while they were serving time in his jail.
A letter signed by Harrison's three adult children and sent to all 67
Florida sheriffs warns them that they could also be victims of witnesses
paid to lie and asks for contributions to his defense fund. It says the'
Florida Department of Law Enforcement paid the witnesses to lie in a
carefully orchestrated plot to convict Harrison. ,
Harrison's son, Michael A. Harrison, an FDLE analyst, was sus-
pended last week after the letters were sent to the sheriffs.
Manatee Sheriff, Charlie Wells, president of the Florida Sheriffs As-
sociation, said most of the sheriffs in Florida would never get into such
a situation because they have policies to never be alone with female
prisoners in their jails. Wells denounced the claim that FDLE paid the
witnesses to lie.
SWITCHES PARTY: State Sen. W. C. Childers. D-Pensacola. be-'
came a Republican last week, saying he had always been a conservative
and felt more comfortable in the Republican Party. Childers said no one
had promised him any favors and he would have switched earlier except
for his loyalty to Sen. Pat Thomas, D-Quincy. who was president of the
Senate for one year.
Childer's switch gives the GOP a 22 to0 18 majority in the Senate.
This is the first year since reconstruction Republicans have a majority.
Thomas and former Sen. Ander Crenshaw, R-Jacksonville, shared the
two year Senate president's term when the chamber was split 20-20.
