Planning Consortium Approaches Commission With
Ideas on Financing, Planning and Locations


The proposed marina, to be
located adjacent to the city pier,
and a city limit to city limit rede-
velopment action plan for Port St.
Joe entered the planning stages
with the agreement of the City
Commission during Tuesday eve-
ning's commission meeting.
The Chamber of Commerce
has been exploring the possibilityr'
and feasibility of building a mari-
na for the past several months,
recently establishing a marina

Board Considers Policy, Financial Cuts


Search for Method to
Expel Any Student
Found At School
With Weapon
The Gulf County School
Board expressing concern over
the future took at least two steps
In their meeting Tuesday to get
ready to cope with two worrisome
matters.
First the Board drew up a
presentation to be publicized and
advertised which will allow them
to expel problem students from
school for the entire year. Using a
state law which prohibits the pos-
session, by students, of firearms
on the school campus the Board
expanded on the.law to meet local- --
,purposes.
They would, as the state re-
quires, immediately expel any
student caught with possession
of a firearm or weapon which
shoots a deadly projectile on the
school campus. Their only ques-
tion was who should do the expel-
ling. After considerable discus-
sion the Board agreed that they
would do the expelling with the
concurrence of the Superinten-
dent; making all in agreement.
In addition the Board agreed
they would add their own require-
ment that students be expelled
also if caught using any other
substance as a weapon against a
fellow student or teacher. This
would Include knives, pipes,
sticks, even pens and pencils
used to stab, which causes harm
to be inflicted upon another per-
son.
They agreed unanimously
that the student would be ex-
pelled from school for the remain-
der of the year should he/she be
in possession of any of these
deadly weapons. Board member
Oscar Redd asked if the school
wouldn't be required to provide
alternative education for students
so expelled.
Superintendent Walter Wilder
replied that under state law they
probably would be; but he felt '
there was still. a need to get stu-
dents with such belligerent atti-


tudes off the school campus,
away from 'the other students,
both for their safety and their
peace of mind while attempting to
get an education.
ANOTHER CONCERN
The Board was also appre-
hensive over state funding follow-
ing the present session of the
Florida Legislature. Temple Wat-
son. Administrative Assistant,
said he is "scared to death" of
what's going to happen on the'
state level for school financing.
Watson suggested the Board
make plans as if a disastrous cut
In funds is in the very near fu-


ture. "It very well might become a
reality", said Watson. as he told
the Board that committee In the
administrative office has been
looking over the budget with a
close eye for the past six weeks.
Watson said It would be desirable
to be prepared as much as possi-
ble even though any cuts at all
would have tremendous affect on
the close budget of the Board this
year.
POSSIBLE FUNDS REDUCTION
Oscar Redd asked the Board,
"Just how far have we gone in
this matter? When people ask me


on the street what our financial
condition is and how we're pre-

paring for these cuts they're read-
ing about in other counties, how
am I going to answer them?"
Wilder said a committee is
made up' of knowledgeable people
In the school system who are
.aware of the expenditures and
'the needs. He said, "As soon as
they get through with their exam-
ination of our entire financial pic-
ture, they will make recommen-
dations to the Board as to what
we should do about financial

vice from a consultant with exper-
tise in this field.
The Florida Planning Consor-
tium, headed by Deborah Gest-
ner, was highly recommended to
the Chamber. After being contact-
ed by the committee, she visited
Port St. Joe to" evaluate the pro-
ject. She recommended a plan
folding the marina project into a
complete city redevelopment plan
which would make all of the pro-
jects more marketable as funding
sources were searched for.
Tamara Laine, Chamber of
Commerce Executive Assistant,
told the City Commissioners that
funds to pay the consultant's fees
to draw up the plan had been
pledged by local-business, indus-
try and individuals, but were con-
tingent upon the city's accep-
tance of the gift and committing
to be part of the plan.
Laine said, 'The pledges are
contingent upon the acceptance
by the City Commission that the
plan would not be just another
document to sit on the shelf."
Gestner, Florida Planning
Consortium, was present at the
meeting and fielded questions
from the board concerning the
plan.
Mayor Frank Pate asked
Gestner if the plan would be du-
plicating the downtown redevel-
opment plan currently being pur-
sued by the Downtown Rede-
velopment Committee. The city is
in the process of applying for a

ment grant to be earmarked for
renovating Reid Avenue in Port
St. Joe.
Gestrier responded noting in
order for the marina to work she
felt that it had. to be physically
connected to the downtown area.
She pointed out that Port St. Joe
had a very well laid out down-
town area but that the plans for
the city needed to flow together,
tying the development: programs
together.
Gestner explained that her
document would consist of more
than just a plan for redevelop-
ment but would include recom-
mendations for implementation, a
feature left out of most develop-
ment projects.
According to Gestner the plan
would be developed in three stag-
es. First, the city commissioners
and community leaders would
participate in a workshop identi-
fying the needs and directions the
plan needs to take. Then work-
shops would be conducted with
the public to get their feedback
and recommendations. After the
basic plan had been drawn up, a
meeting with state and federal
agencies, which would be in-
volved in the permitting aid fi-
nancing of the various aspects of
the plan, would be held to see
how they receive the plan and get
feedback from them.

Committee, pointed out that the

In County
Tracey Fitzgerald, an
eighth grade student at Port
St. Joe Middle School, spelled
her way to a repeat county
spelling championship on
Wednesday, .March 1. This
year's county bee was held in
the Media Center .at Port St.
'Joe Middle and High Schools
and had six contestants, one
from each school in the county
having grades five through
eight.
After several rounds of
competition the field had been
narrowed to Tracey and Sarah
Bailey, a Wewahitchka eighth
grader. The competition see-
sawed back and forth .until Sa-
rah missed "spherical". Tracey
then spelled it and also the
next word on the pronouncer's
list, "lustrous", for her champi-
onship.
Other school champs par-
ti6ipating in the bee were:
Lindsey, Carter, Wewahitchka
Elementary; Lisa Curry, Port
St. Joe Elementary; Drew Tu-
ten, Highland View Elemen-
tary; and Rachel Geoghagan,
Faith Christian School.
Barbara Shirley Scott
served as pronouncer for the

What's Best for Us

IS ST. JOE PAPER Company going to make the decision to
sell our paper mill or is it going to remain a part of this business
giant here in Florida? For 'selfish reasons, we hope ownership re-
mains as it has been for the past 60 years. St. Joe Paper has
served Port St. Joe well and even though they have some busi-
ness practices some people don't like, they are there for the long
range protection of the firm and its future well-being.
Supposition as to whether or not they will decide to sell the
mill and/or other portions of the now-solid business empire has
rocked the business world of Florida and sent reverberations as
far as the halls of Congress in Washington, D.C., with musing
Son whether they will or they won't, occupying the conversations
both public and private throughout the eastern portion of the
nation.
A SALE WILL OBVIOUSLY benefit some people and some
operations throughout the south. Maintaining the assets will
just as obviously benefit others and we're not about to speculate
as to which group is largest or more in need of increased or pro-
longed benefits.
We only know, that as far as we can see, it will benefit Port
St. Joe more if the situation is left as is and if any changes are
made, they be made to strengthen that situation.
It's no deep dark secret that St. Joe Paper Company, under
its present ownership has been good for Port St. Joe. Any'
change could be disastrous or it might possibly be advanta-
geous. It will bode us- all well to stay abreast of what is happen-
ing with the situation at all times and do what we can to assure
a sweet deal for Port St. Joe, regardless of what happens.
WE REALIZE THAT paper mills arid other manufacturing in-
stallations have been sold in the past throughout the nation
without any deleterious effect. That is likely to be the case here.
Each cog of the duPont business machine-which comes under
the management of St. Joe Paper Company, depends on the
strength of the other cog for its well-being. Likely that position'
will still serve to protect any portion of the empire when the ulti-
mate decision is made.
We will hear all kinds of rumors before a- final decision is
made in this matter. It will pay us all to get factual Information'
before we go off the deep end with any reaction. Remember, the
decision has been made only to consider sale. The decision on
whether or not to sell will, properly, not be made overnight.


A Starring Role

DO PEOPLE FROM Port St. Joe have underarm odor, halito-
sis or bad body odor?,Is the city itself offensive to the remainder
of the state-Tallahassee and state government especially? Or do
people tend to ignore us because we are small? Or could we have
an inferiority complex?
Is It our imagination or has our role in the formation of the
state of Florida 150 years ago last Friday been ignored by the re-
mainder of Florida? We admit we overlooked the day here at The
Star, but we didn't have a committee on the state payroll or any
other payroll whose sole responsibility was to call our attention
to it. ...
We-knew about the upcoming celebration, but we didn't real-
ize it was to begin last Friday. The late GeorgeAdkins of Blount-
stown called the upcoming event to our attention several years
ago at a Historical Society annual meeting and advised us all the
state of Florida was going to go "allf out" to celebrate the state's
150th birthday-its sesquicentennial.
WE HAVE BEEN IGNORED again! Port St. Joe just happens
to be the one spot in Florida where the new state's first constitu-
tion was drawn up, agreed to and'signed. Not Tallahassee; nor
in outer space; not in Washington, D.C., or even in Vernon; the
burial place of one of the signers. But all 'of these locations were
hosts to ceremonies marking the 150th anniversary of the initia-
tion of Florida statehood, making it the 27th state, Friday.
Do you feel, as we do, that at least some'sort of state spon-
sored arid financed ceremony should have been held at the State
Museum building here in Port St. Joe? It was here things were
accomplished in 1838 to get the necessary work done to make
the territory of Florida eligible for statehood. It was here the
agreement was hammered out by the representative from Ver-
non, from St. Augustine, from Jacksonville. and from other parts
of the territory, and officially signed, creating the way to become
a state. _
.It's only appropriate, that in all of the elaborate planning,.
celebration, recognition and paying honors which are to be done
throughout this sesquicentennial year, Port St. Joe should at
least be mentioned in one of them. We did play more than a mi-
nor role in Florida's birth


Did you hear about Jim and
Jennifer Barron up in Trentoin,
Tennessee? This enterprising
couple built their home and barn
under one roof. They have taken
the term 'getting things together"
to new heights. The Barron's have


bunker Down with Kes

Two Mules For Sister Ruby


three quarter horses and I guess
ole Jim got tired of tramping out
to the barn the old-fashioned way
through the rain, sleet and snow
to see about 'em in the rough
winter months. Now, if he wants
to check on 'em, he just turns
down the T.V. and whistles .....
e The couple pipes music into
'the stables for the well-kept hors-
es and a sprinkling system will
soon be added to keep the dust
down in the riding arena. I men-
Stioned to Cathy that we might
think about: one of those small


sprinkler systems to go over the
top of our kitchen cabinets .....
Jennifer is a member of the
Women's Professional Rodeo As-
sociation and competes in barrel
riding competitions at rodeos and
horse shows. The indoor arena
comes in handy when preparing
for competltlon or just exercising
the horses. I think they probably
refer to the stables as "the back
bed rooms". And the arena, quite
naturally, would be the ultimate
Great Room.
They've worked out a unique


system for temperature control. If
one of the horses gets a tad warm
during the night, he beats on his
"bed room wall". Tlde whole house
shakes Jim nudges Jen who
jumps up and cranks down the
thermostat a notch or two. And
feeding up, according to the Bar-
ron's, is no trouble at all. The
hungry horse will simply stroll
into the kitchen and sit down at
the table. 'The best thing," says
Mrs. Barron, "'is they are not
fussy eaters. About the only thing
they won't try are those rice
cakes."
What a novel idea It just nev-
er crossed my mird to.put horses
in -the back room. And I suspect
there could be some drawbacks.
I'd hate ,to get behind one trying
to turn around in the hall. And
you'd have to wonder if they
could ever "make it" to the up-
stairs bathroom. I've had dogs,
,cats and two children crawl into
my bed unannounced in the mid-
dle of the night, but folks; I draw
the line on Trigger ..
'We don't ,hardly ever hear
the horses.," Barron said,, "unless
they get really shook up." About
the only way you can "shake ,up"
a bunch of horses living in the
back room is to have the electrici-
ty to go off ln the middle of Crook
and Chase, or big Jim lets it slip
'that his mother-in-law is coming
for a visit
You know I could have really
put this house-barn thing to good
use in 1959. We, of course, were
still doing it the old-fashioned
way. Our barn set maybe fifty,
sixty yards behind the house. The
worst part of being so out-dated
were those early morning Janu-
ary dashes down to milk those
lop-eared old cows. Listen, the
back door knob was cold, the
screen door was. cold, ,the path
was cold, the barn was 40 below
and the cows were frigid. Most
mornings old Bessie didn't want
your freezing fingers wrapped
around anything she had....
If Dad had only known! We
could have added a couple of
rooms and let the cows move into
the big house. I'd 'a, kept a clean
pall and a strainer riglft beside
my bed. Every morning as Mother
shook me gently wake me, Fd
greet her and say, "Send in old
Bessie."
We could a' thrown Jerry Lee
Lewis on the hi-fl doing Great
Balls Of Fire or Little Queenie
and you talk about a milk-a-thonl
We could have gathered the cows
around the, kitchen table and
added a whole new meaning to
the term "instant milk", I tell you,
I can't believe we .didn't think
about this thirty.years ago.
I reckon we'd a' had to take
those twoold mules in also. They
couldn't even get along with each
other-much less anybody else.
There's flaws in every plan .....
Perhaps we could have let Aunt
Ruby Nell bunk in with them. I
bet that would have cut down on
her frequent, lengthy visits.
'Course, come to think of it, that
wouldn't 'a bothered Aunt Ruby
Nell much-she was (and is) as
stubborn as both of those mules

Sharks Lost in Final Four but They're Still State Champs to Us


I WISH I COULD write this
column on an exultant note, re-
living the play at the state basket-
ball tournament and its resulting
state championship for Port St
Joe. But, I can't do it.
Of course I would like to en-
joy the "bragging rights" which'
goes with being state champions.
There's a certain satisfaction
about being able to say, our team
is state champions [in anything!]
and has been for two years in a
row!
The ability to do that would
. make me feel good and I know it
'would make you feel good too. We
all have had this luxury for the
past year and it felt good! It
makes your chest swell out with
pride and your step is a little
lighter.
The Sharks have brought
home the championship several
times over the past few years.
They have always been in the
thick of the play-offs; a team for
the opposition to beat, if they


were going to wrest the champi-
onship from the Sharks' grasp.

I WISH THIS were so for all
of us.
Most of all I wish it were so
for Jermaine, Mario, Brian, Bar-
ry, Damien, Damon, Chad, Chris,
Desmond, John, Doyle, and Rob-
ert, who worked so hard and long
over the past four or five years,
and played their hearts out over
the past years, in order to climb
to the lofty heights as the best
Class 3-A basketball team in the
state of Florida,. I don't care what
anybody says
I would also like to report a


second state championship for
Coach of the Year Vernon Eppin- j
ette and his assistants Chuck'
Gannon and Wayne Stevens.
These past two seasons have
been no bed of roses for them, el-
ther. There was working and
training to do; and teaching just
the right techniques. I'm sure
there had to also be a certain
amount of encouraging activity
going on, too.
WHAT I'M TRYING to say is:
this group of young men and
their coaches didn't just decide
one day they were going to be
state champions and just mark.i


time until state championship
play came around.
There was an awful lot of
planning. and work; conditioning
and work; practice and .work;
travelling a good ways from home
on a school night, only to have to
report for class the next morning
. on time. and work; there
was even having to report for
class on time on the morning af-
ter a stolen ball in the final 10
seconds of the semi-finals turned
a victory into defeat.!
Coach Eppinette said, at a
civic club meeting, recently, "We
can play with anybody All we
have to do is keep the score close
and we can wear 'em down by the
end of the game. Our young men
are in excellent condition. They
can run with anybody!"
They were keeping the score
close Friday afternoon-a little
ahead _for most of the game-and
ran with a passion, stealing ball
after ball. Desmond Baxter did
what he was best at; he scored.


two clutch baskets-five points-
with less than a minute to play.
Jermaine Larry did what he has
done best all season long-stolen
(the ball for the Sharks as they
took a narrow lead into the final
30 seconds of the game. Things
were going according to plan.
Then, with two Sharks and, a
Crusader battling for a loose baNll
at mid-court, the Crusader
tripped over a downed Shark and
the referee whistled the downed
Shark for a foul on a controver-
sial call. It was a judgment call
on the part of the referee, but it
resulted in the Crusaders tying
the game with the resulting foul
shots and the pressure-cooker
situation both teams found them-
selves facing the final 10 seconds
of the game.

IS THERE ANY consolation
in this situation for Port St. Joe?
I think so.
Port St. Joe has seen some of


the best in basketball played by
its high school team during the
past two -years than any small
town should ever expect to see.
The game has been played as it
should be played; fair, hard and
expertly. The school has not gone.
looking for "patsies" to throw at
its highly competent young men,
like a puppy tossing about an old
shoe.
Port St. Joe has had an op-
portunity to see and participate
in some of the highest level bas-
ketball play outside college and
professional ranks.
Fans such as Theo Johnson
and Paul Sewell, haven't had to
follow the team just because it
was the "home team".
And to their credit, the Port
St. Joe fans didn't leave it to the
team to have to appear in the cav-
ernous Civic Center in Tallahas-
see all alone. They were champi-
onship fans, too; in numbers and
spirit

day morning passed $50,000 in
pledges. This represents an 11$
increase over last 'year's initial
fundraiser. As the final hour end-

board, although this amount may
yet go higher as some persons,
who failed to donate during the
telethon, may do so at the local

'There are a lot of tired folks,"
said Executive Director, Dick Pas-

it's a good tired. You've done a
wonderful thing. Everyone can


take pride," Pascoe also ex-
pressed "strong and heartfelt ap-

which again produced the pro-

Fevers

By

Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D. j

Normal oral (by mouth) temperature is 98.6 degrees and normal
rectal temperature is 99.6. Oral temperature of 99-100 and rectal
temperature of 101 degrees will be a definite fever.
Everyone needs to know how to read a thermometer. If you
really can not see, the silver line in a regular thermometer there are
red line thermometers or digital thermometers. You can have some
indication of fever by touch, but one really needs to definitely check
in order to know the magnitude of the problem. Experienced nurses
(mothers and grandmothers too) are unable to gauge a fever by
touch. If you think the child has a fever you need to check it with a
thermometer.
Fevers are not all bad. The body mounts a defense against a
viral or bacterial infection by running a fever. Often the body will
contain the infection by developing its own antibodies in the blood.
Fevers do, however, need to be controlled. Our usual
instructions for fever management are:
1. Acetominophen (Tylenol, Tempra or Liquiprin in appropriate
doses for age and weight) every four (4) hours for temperature
101 and over. In the past, Aspirin was used to reduce fever. It
worked well, but because Reyes Syndrome seemed associated
with the use of aspirin, we discontinued using, it in viral
illnesses with fevers. The incidence of Reyes Syndrome has
dropped from. 550 cases per year to 25 since aspirin is no
longer used to reduce fevers in children.
2. Bathe or sponge (usually 15-20 minutes) with tepid water for
temperature 103 or over. The bathing is done to keep the
temperature in the 100-102 level to prevent the child from
having a fever convulsion from temperatures of 104-105.
In recent years, doctors and patients have found ibuprofen
(Advil or Motrin).to be very helpful with high fevers. If your doctor
thinks ibuprofen may be indicated it will be suggested.
When children are feverish, we want the body heat to escape
and dissipate. That means you should not wrap up a child with
blankets. The child may feel chilly, but if wrapped in blankets the
temperature will rise. It is acceptable to wrap in a sheet if the
closeness makes the child feel better.
With the climate in Port St. Joe, there is no time a child could
not be taken outside if it is necessary. Generally speaking, when a
child is ill'.he should be in comfortable, surroundings with a,
competent caretaker. But, if the circumstances dictate moving him
for whatever reason, this is acceptable.
Children often run slight fevers during the first day or so of a
new cold. When running a fever, they use up much more liquid than
when they are normal. You always need to coax or push extra liquid
into the child running a fever. Dehydration can become an
additional problem for a child who has been running a fever and not
drinking fluids.
Children who have fevers that persist or children who exhibit
abnormal behavior will need to see the doctor.

Capping Front

Teeth


If you'd like to improve
the appearance of your front
teeth because they are
chipped, stained or have old-
looking fillings, ask your den-
tist if he would recommend
capping.
Your front teeth are the
first thing people see when
you open your mouth to talk
or smile. You want them to
look as attractive as possi-
ble. If the teeth are in good
alignment and your gums
are healthy, your dentist may
suggest two alternatives for
capping the teeth in which
porcelain will be used. One
is veneer bonding; the other
is porcelain fused to -


metal crowns.
Both have advantages,
but your dentist's recommen-
dation will depend on the
condition of your teeth. Cap-
ping your front teeth with
porcelain fused to metal
has the advantage of
strength as well as pleasing
appearance. Porcelain ve-
neers give the translucence
of natural teeth, and are also
very strong and beautiful.

The Shark bats began to sing
out Tuesday evening, as the team
handed the Carrabelle eleven a
11-3 drubbing.
Pounding out 13 hits, the
Sharks had runs in the first two,
the fourth, sixth and seventh In-
nings with six Sharks getting two

bert, Ryan Yeager, Wayne Sum-
mers, Brian Jenkins and Des
Baxter, each hit safely twice in

times, Yeager drove in three runs,
with Colbert, Summers, and Bax-
ter each driving in two.
Brad Smith started on the
mound for the Sharks, striking
out five and giving up two runs
on four hits in picking up the
win. He turned a 6-2 lead over to
Russell Young who hurled three
strong innings in relief.
The Sharks, now 4-1, will

Finish Season
The Sharks were literally
beaten at the buzzer in the first
round of the Final Four last
Thursday in Tallahassee as Otis
Kitchen of Tampa Catholic hit a
15-foot jumper as the clock
wound down to 0:00 to win the;
game 67-65. Tampa went on. to
win the 3A state title Saturday
with a 69-67 win over Boca Raton
St. Andrews.
The Sharks, the 1994 defend- ;
ing champions, seemed 'to be gp-
ing to make a repeat performance!
of last year as they began the
game with a- sluggish first quarter
scoring only nine as the Crusad-
ers .pumped in 22, but managed
to play their brand of fast break
ball the second quarter and re-
gain the lead 40-35 at halftime.
In-the third quarter the Cru-
saders outscored the Sharks 16-
15 and still were down by four as:
the fourth quarter began.
The lead seesawed back and
forth during the fourth quarter
and Des Baxter tied the game
with a three-pointer with 59 sec-
onds left. Tampa Catholic went
into a stall, but Baxter managed
tb steal a cross court pass and
bank one off the glass to put the,
Sharks up 65-63 with 42.7 sec-
onds left. :
A controversial one-and-one'
foul call on Jermaine Larry at
mid-court as three players went
down scrambling for the ball sent
Tampa Catholic to the charity
stripe where both ends of the foul
were good to tie the game at 65-
65 .
The Sharks inbounded the
ball and were working toward the
goal for the final. shot of the
game. Jermaine Larry split two
defenders up top, but as he ap-
proached the foul line his pass to
Baxter, was stolen by Darrell'
Jackson with six seconds left.
Passing the ball down the court,
Tampa got into position and'
Kitchen let loose of the final shot
just as the buzzer sounded.
The Sharks finished the sea-
son at 30-4, having defeated nu-
merous 3A, 4A, 5A and even 6A
teams during the '94-'95 season.
Coach Vern Eppinette was named
the High School Coach of the
Year. But the dejection on the
faces of players and fans spelled
the end of their quest for a repeat
performance as state champions.

Trim State's Fat

Chiles, Legislative Leaders In
A Fight for School Funding
It will be interesting to watch two young politicians in the session of
the Florida Legislature that began Tuesday for the parts they will play in
funding schools in what is expected to be the biggest fight among law-
makers.
A study in contrasts, they are House Speaker Peter Wallace, D-St.
Petersburg, and newly elected Commissioner of Education Frank Brogan,
a Republican from Martin County.
In the best tradition of liberal Democratic politicians, Wallace-
whose kids attend private schools-announced at a public school in Tal-
lahassee last week a plan to reduce enrollment in elementary classrooms
to 20. students at an estimated cost of about $36 million a year. He'd also
insure free textbooks for every student, and would let parents list their
preference of public schools they'd like their children to attend as a cost
he couldn't estimate until he looks at pre-enrollment figures for next
year.
Brogan on the same day at a news conference urged the legislators to
repeal all laws and regulations dealing with education and start over by
re-enacting only rules it wants to keep as the only "realistic way' to de-
regulate the education system and return control back to the local school
districts.
Brogan would also implement tougher testing and standards to make
sure children Bearn what they should, especially in reading, writing and
math. '
Both Wallace and Brogan support Charter Schools that would be run'
by private educators operating under contract to the local school boards
but not under state rules. Wallace is adamantly against a tax voucher
system which would allow students to.take their tax money with them to
the private school of their choice while Brogan flirted with the idea of pi-
lot projects in counties which say they want them, but says he'd wait on
that until the Legislature clarifies how tax vouchers could be structured.
There are bills that would do that.
Wallace fired a handful of old-time "capitol employees just before
Christmas in his re-organization, some of whom he has already replaced
with his own choices. Brogan announced he plans to cut 350 jobs in the
Tallahassee headquarters of the state school system and, from that and
other streamlining efforts, boost per-pupil spending by $72 which is
about $239 million more than Chiles has proposed for schools next year.
The education bureaucracy feels Charter Schools will be the begin-
ning of the end of the education system as they have known it. If suc-
cessful, they say, charter schools will be followed by tax vouchers. Pris-
ons, they feel, willget the'lion's share of the budget increases that once
went to education.
The other big players at the annual poker game in Taxahassee are
Gov. Lawton (he-coon) Chiles and Senate President Jim Scott, R-Fort
Lauderdale, a native Kentuckian whose skills and manners, some say,
flow like smooth whiskev.
Scott says that by streamlining'the bureaucracy the Senate can raise
an extra $150 to $200 million for schools over Chiles proposed 4.2 per-
cent Increaseover last year.
"I'm in the 1-don't-give-a-damn period of my life," Chiles. who will not
seek re-election, told reporters. He said he'd compromise but not cave in
to conservatives in the House and Senate. although he has changed his
agenda for the changing times. He's now for reforming welfare, cutting all
state rules 50 percent, slashing bureaucratic fat, and improving the
economy.
But some things never change. Like cronyism. Chiles is getting heavy
criticism for hiring an old friend-Alachua County rancher James "Ben"
Rowe-as a special assistant to the governor on agricultural issues for
$70,000 a year. No one had the post the past four years. The state has
an elected Agriculture Commissioner with a big staff already. Rowe didn't
go through channels for a state job. He just asked his old friend for one.
SNOW WHITE and the six dwarfs comes to mind when you sit

who covers the cabinet. Oh yes. You won't find the seven dwarfs named
in the modem version of the Disney classic. It is not politically correct
you know. They're just a "family of little men" which isn't very kind ei-
ther. Hey, maybe the cabinet label should be Snow White and the Family
of Little Men. Huh?

Capitol News Round-Up
TALLAHASSEE (WNS -As an interstate shellfish board debated a
half-year ban on the sale of unshucked oysters for health reasons, the
Small Counties Coalition last week asked Gov. Lawton Chiles and the
Cabinet to set up a revolving loan fund to aid in economic development of
some two dozen Florida coastal counties expected to be hit hard by the
fishing net ban that begins July 1.
; The coalition-headed by Gulf County Commissioner Warren Yeager
this year-has set up a Legislative network for the session starting this
week to seek help in the small coastal counties which Yeager said are ex-
pecting a ripple of economic losses in excess of $100 million.
The group backs a bill by Rep. Allen Boyd. D-Monticello, that would
pay for retraining, net and boat buybacks, and job-hunting help for fish-
ermen put out of work by the ban that passed as a constitutional amend-
ment last year.
The proposed ban on the sale of raw oysters from the Gulf of Mexico
from April through October is one of two options presented to the execu-
tive board of Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference held In Orlando.
The other option is a package of oyster-processing regulation aimed
at reducing disease-causing germs in raw oysters, but still allow theftir
sale in the spring and summer months. ,
SA decision dn the recommendations is expected in August when the
31-state conference will meet again in Orlando.,
Since the state started keeping records in 1981. Florida has averaged
seven illnesses and three deaths per year through the consumption of
raw oysters in the summer and spring months.
Some state and industry officials have. Insisted the deaths were the
results of consumer ignorance as only people with liver and other health

tional programs.
But the federal Food and Drug Administration. on the recommenda-
tion of Florida's director of epidemiologic investigation, Gary Hlady,
asked the ISSC to ban raw oyster sales from April through October.
A LONG WAY, FLORIDA: The state capital will be a study of con-
trasts during this session of the Legislature set to consider a bill to open
cyberspace to Floridians while celebrating the 150th year of state govern-
ment.
It's rather ironic that the people who didn't much want to become a
state in 1845 when the feds decided to bring it into the union as a slave
state to balance free-state Iowa are now facing a massive intercommuni-
cations act in the Legislature which will open to about 13 million Floridi-
ans a vast array of electronic information services.
Florida's first state flag back then carried a statement on its second
stripe reading: "LET US ALONE.'
This week an estimated 130 lobbyists from telephone and cable-
vision services are gathered with lawmakers in Tallahassee to stake their
claims on access to cyberspace in a telecommunications bill being
groomed in the House Regulated Industries Committee:
They're slogan is" "LET US IN."! .. ,,
The average Floridian really doesn't know what's out there but the
lobbyists believe wide-open access to telephone, cable-TV, pay-per-movie,
home computer networks, home security and a huge array of information
services is worth millionss.
SAVE OUR STATE organizers who'd deny tax-paid social services to
illegal aliens in Florida are being faced off by a FAIR FLORIDA FOR ALL
group formed by supporters of immigrant farm workers.
SOS has applied for an application to raise money for a petition cam-
paign to put the question on the November, 1996, ballot.`
IRS BREAKUP: Two bills seeking to break up Florida's and the na-
tion's largest bureaucracy-the Department of Health and Rehabilitative
Services-seems to have the best chance in the recent history in this
year's session of the Florida Legislature. .
There are bills poised in both the House and Senate that would
create a new Department of Health Care Services that would take from
HRS the public health, children's medical services, substance abuse and
mental health programs.
A shift in those programs would'remove about $2 billion in funding
and 20,000 employed from HRS.
Another $7 billion budget and about 1,800 employees would be shift-
ed to the new agency from the old Agency for Health Care Administration
,under HRS which oversees the Medicaid program, medical professional
regulatory boards, and state health care reform efforts.
The reason the bills are considered good bets to pass 'this year are
the number of conservatives elected in the last election which resulted in
Republican control of the Senate and a narrow split in the House.




Add A Touch of


Color to Landscape


Annual flowering plants can j
--provide-.hat,'-nbcessary todctir'oif -",
color to an often drab landscape.
They are best displayed as bor-
ders along walkways, fences and
shrub beds.: Annuals planted, in.
containers can add a splash of
color to a porch, deck or patio
area.
Ahnuals should' serve as an
accent to the landscape, not a
dominant feature in the setting.
Those used in front of the home
should harmonize with the set-
ting, and colors should blend
with each other and with the
home. Large elaborate 'annual
displays are usually too distract-
ing for this area and are best
used in the back yard.
When selecting annuals forl
beds or borders, it is best to limit
the choice to as few kinds as pos-
sible. Combinations of many flow-'
er colors and plant forms can dis-
tract from the overall appearance
of the display. Attractive. flower
beds can be created by using one
plant species.
Flower beds should be pre-
pared before plaints are pur-
chased. Allowing plants'to remain
in their original containers for
prolonged periods after purchase
can have a negative effect on their
performance after planting. Pur-
chase plants when you're ready
and plant them as soon as possi-
ble, preferably within twenty-four
hours.
The time spent preparing the
planting beds is important if you
are to be successful with annual
flowers. Flower beds should be
spaded or tilled at least six inches
deep several ,weeks before plant-
ing. Florida's sandy soils have

very low capacities for holding

materials such as compost or
peat should be thoroughly mixed
into the soil.
Garden soils, especially in re-
cently developed areas, are fre-

should be' fertilized prior to plant-
ing or at planting time and re-
peated on a monthly basis. Apply
8-8-8 or a similar complete ferti-
lizer at the rate of 2 pounds per

lease fertilizers can be
incorporated uniformly through-
out the soil before planting and
applied on the soil surface of es-
tablished planting.
Water the plants after plant-,
ing and water daily until the
plants have become established.
Water the plants "as needed"
thereafter.
Weeds should be controlled
by mulching and hand weeding..
Mulching materials should not
come in contact with plant stems.
The high moisture environment
created by mulch increases the
chances of stem rot which can re-
sult in plant death.
Annual flowers require more
maintenance than most other
landscape plants. However, their'
brilliant colors add an atmos-
phere of warmth and life to land-
scape which more than justifies
the additional maintenance.

Our Positive Action "Word For

you make a decision, do you fol-

Your brains or your feelings? Log-

is. What's Important Is to know
that you can use both. Some peo-
ple think that decisions based on
feelings aren't any good. They will
encourage you to use your head
and ignore your feelings. They
might say, "Don't be so emotion-
al." But your emotions matter.

Each day approximately ,200
poisoning emergency and infor-
mation calls are managed by. the
Florida Poison Information Center
in Jacksonville and that figure; is
projected to increase as Florida's
residents become more aware' of
the Center and its capabilities.
Florida's has three centers 'in
the statewide Poisori Information
Network, which were created 'by
the Florida Legislature. Each pro-
vides an invaluable service to citi-
zens by offering poison preven-
*tion and management informa-
tion through a statewide, toll-free
hotline which is 'open 24 hours a
day, seven days a week. Calls are
answered by specially 'trained
nurses, ,pharmacists, toxicology
fellows and on-call toxicologists
who have computerized access to
the latest, in-depth poison a'
sessment and management teci-
niques.
Residents of Florida may ac-.
cess the network 'of information "
centers by calling toll-free, '1-800-
282-3171.
Poisoning is one of the lead-
ing causes of health emergencies,
for children in Florida, ranking'
sixth on Florida's injury death
list. Ninety percent of poison ex-
posures are accidental, and over
S60% of poisonings occur in chil-
dren under the age of six. Acci-
dents such as these can be pre-
vented with public education and
awareness of poison, prevention
techniques in the home.
