County Applying for Flood Disaster Funds

Reject the Bids for Road

Paving; All Are Too High


Bridge Deto
Progress became evident on paving
of roads approaching Port St. Joe with
the closing of the main roadway on
Highway 98 at Depot Creek. five miles
west of Port St. Joe this week.
According to George Roberts,
spokesman for the C. W. Roberts Con-
tracting Company, prime contractor for
the job, the detour re-routes traffic on
the highway over a newly-constructed
temporary bridge, while a new structure

ur Erected on

is being built, crossing the creek.
After the new bridge is built, High'-
way 98 will be resurfaced from Port St.
Joe to the Franklin County line.
Meanwhile, a second paving project
the re-building and re-surfacing of
Highway 71 from the eastern city limits
to White City has gotten underway,
Crews are on the job doing prelimi-

Highway 98
nary work in preparation to the actual
surfacing of the road, which should be-
gin within two months. Again, according
to Roberts who also has the contract for'
re-surfacing Highway 71, .the road will
be widened by two feet on each side be-
fore the final paving cover is applied.
Both projects are the responsibility

Nemours Foundation, an operator of not-for-profit pediatric health care facilities in Florida and Delaware, this week confirmed that It is ex-
panding its role in pediatric specialty care In Florida, and trimming Its role in pediatric primary care in Florida by transferring ownership of 10
primary care clinics in Eastpoint, Marianna. DeFuniak Springs. Clewiston, La Belle. Macclenny. Green Cove Springs and Jacksonville.
According to Chip Cover, a spokesman with the Nemours Foundation in Jacksonville, the Port St. Joe Clinic's primary care pediat-
ric clinic's ownership will be transferred to another medical group if current negotiations are successful.
'"We anticipate these primary care practices will continue to serve their communities, but under direct ownership." said W. Jeff Wadsworth.
General Manager of The Nemours Foundation. Mr. Wadsworth confirmed that discussions are underway with both private and public entities
about transferring the ownership of the practices, as well as locating new specialty care facilities. "We will be expanding our operation in Ft.

Cambric concurred there was
no previous knowledge the pre-
applications would be awarded
from, or that funding would be
made available at 100%, rather
than 75/25 matching funds.
The Board appointed Larry
Wells as the designated staffer to
head Gulf County's task force to
draw up a Hazard Mitigation plan
and assist ARPC in applying for
Hazard Mitigation grants.
The Board unanimously re-
jected all bids for the Secondary
Road and Bridge Fund paving
project after the bids received
came in considerably above the
$350,000 available through the
road paving funds.
Three bids were received for
road paving services with Florida
Asphalt and paving Co. entering
the low bid at $599,161. Panhan-
dle Grading and Paving was the
second lowest bidder at
$627,040, and Gulf Asphalt bid
Commissioner Warren Yeager
asked the Board If anyone had
heard from C. W. Roberts Con-
struction, wondering if they might
be trying to make a point by not
bidding the road work. Comm.
Billy Traylor' reasoned saying he
hoped any contractor wouldn't
decide against bidding work in
Gulf County because of publicity
they might receive in area news-
The Board discussed looking
over the list of roads to be paved,
possibly cutting some of them.

The Florida Commission on
Ethics dismissed a complaint last
Thursday in Tallahassee which
had been filed against Gulf
County Commissioner Billy Tray-
Traylor had been charged
with improperly arranging, free
milled asphalt deliveries for his
.constituents before he won, his
primary: bid for re-election last
year. Investigators had found no
evidence of corrupt intent on
Traylor's part and concluded
there were no violations of ethics
The Commission concluded
an elected official's efforts to ob-
tain benefits for his constituents
does not violate ethics laws.
When contacted, Traylor vowed to
continue- to do all he could to
help his constituents in any way
he possibly cotld.

Drowns Mon.
A 16-year-old Wewahitchka
youth, Wilson David Andrews,
drowned Monday afternoon about
2:45 p.m. while swimming with
friends at the clay pit known as
the "Nook" on Highway 22A near
the Dead Lakes. He and others
decided to go swimming Monday
afternoon since they were out of
school due to teacher in-service,
and he developed cramps from
the cold water.
Andrews' body was recovered
by members of the Gulf County
Search and Rescue Team, accord-
ing to Sheriff Frank McKeithen,
and was transported to the Leon
County Medical Examiner's Of-

Patrol car remains. Lots of damage.

Sheriff Rolls Car In Chase; Vehicle Rear Ended

Gulf County Sheriff Frank.
McKeithen said he would take an
active "role" in curtailing drug
trafficking in Gulf County but we
didn't believe he intended to do it
in one of the Sheriffs depart-
ments old patrol cars being used
for undercover drug operations.
He and Florida Marine Patrol
officer Arnie McMillian were in-
volved in a high speed chase of a
1983 Mazda pickup, driven by
John Hudson, when the brakes of

The mishap occurred around

partment, Port St. Joe Police De-
partment, and the Florida Marine
Patrol were on stake-out during a
reverse sting drug operation in
the vicinity of Creamer Road and
Highway 22A, when Hudson re-
portedly made a drug deal with
an undercover agent. When offi-
cers attempted to stop Hudson,
he tried to ram their vehicle and
fled the scene. It was during that
pursuit that the accident oc-

ment vehicle had been removed

from road service and was sched-

a coat of paint slapped on it and
put it back into service as an un-
dercover vehicle.
'The reasons we use these
types of vehicles is to not put our
more valuable cars in these type
situations and, of course, to
blend into the surroundings,
McKeithen said.
Deputies Andrew Gainer and
Tony Lee were commended by
McKeithen for tracking down and
arresting Hudson several' miles
further down the road from where
the accident occurred.
McKeithen said that the area
has been a hot spot for drug traf-

picking. "Whatever we've got to do,

Representatives from the Ap-
alachee Regional Planning Coun-
cil were at the County Commis-
sion meeting Tuesday .evening
offering their services to file for
Hazard Mitigation grant money
for victims of the flood occurring
as an aftermath of Tropical Storm
Hazard mitigation has been a
sore subject with the Board for
quite some time. They have ques-
tioned why other counties and
cities have received funds
through the Hazard Mitigation
Program when Gulf County has
not. Franklin County, Blount-
stown, Bonifay, Caryyille and
Chattahoochee were apportioned
$22.2 million dollars worth. of
community development block
grant money in January.
ARPC Assistant Director, Bob
Cambric, was present at the
meeting and Commissioner Billy
Traylor :asked, "Why- has Gulf
County been left out Gulf
County was one of the hardest hit
areas In the state yet we didn't re-
, ceive anything." Traylor wanted to
know if Gulf County had
"dropped the ball" or if there-was
some other reason Gulf was not
considered for the grant
Cambric explained saying un-
til March 7th, the Hazard Mitiga-
tion application process was in a
pre-appllcation mode and it was
not believed that grant money
would be awarded until the appli-
cation phase of the grant process
Swas reached.
Cambric told the Board that
the ARPC had issued a pre-
application for Gulf County which
asked for. 1) hydrological study to
evaluate the impact the old M&K
dike (which broke during the
floods) may have had on flood wa-
'terY-levels:" 2) 'fhItallitibh of river
gauges: and 3) training for the
Building DepartmentL
He stated, that these were evi-
dently not considered priorities
by the task force awarding the
grant money.
County Administrator Larry
Wells explained when the pre-
application was made: the county
was told that the grant money
would be awarded as 75/25
matching funds, but last Friday
he learned that the 25% match-




Yes It Should!

SHOULD GULF COUNTY re-align its commission districts or
shouldn't It? We say it should. The protection of the voting rights
of all its citizens demand it and the wishes or desires of no one
group or the other should decide the issue for the majority of us.
We can see the current make-up of the districts beginning to
polarize us as a county. We're not talking about polarization by
race, either, as much as we are talking about polarization by lo-
THE NORTH END of the county, for instance, is growing. It
deserves to have its people heard from. The south end is grow-
ing, also. Some attention needs to be paid to both ends and the
east and western portions of the county as well, to see that they
all have equal representation and that representation district or
districts aren't gerrymandered to pander to any group or individ-
ual. No representative of any group should remain in office for
very long if the needs of his/her district aren't held up before the
entire Board in discussion as to its needs.
We have said we are operating a modem, small county, here,
and for a few years we did. But demographics have gradually
shifted. Our County Commission and School Board shouldn't
have to be forced into doing what long-time law has said they,
shall do.
WE WELL REMEMBER the last time the county was re-
apportioned. It was court ordered and decided. Before that-for
the first time in umpteen years-it was done only after this writ-
er and one other person, now dead, rode the streets throughout
the county making an actual count of the people and where they
lived. An action set out and defined by the courts should not
need this type of unwilling prodding of our officials to get it
The biggest detriment then and one of the detriments now is
that one or more of the members of the two boards may lose his
too-high-paying job if care isn't taken into just where the lines
are drawn.
This is part of the Idea supporting re-apportionment-to see
that all the people, indeed, are getting fair representation out of
the present board's make-up. Some neighborhoods aren't getting
it now.

Happy Birthday,

IT WAS ON St. Patrick's Day, 1938, that St. Joe Paper Com-
pany first fired up its paper-making machines and made paper
from Gulf County's plentiful supply of pine trees. It has since
utilized pine trees from approximately a dozen counties adjoin-
ing Gulf in the process and directly had a positive effect on the
economic lives of their people.
'Thus it is that the pending decision as to whether or not to
sell the paper mill here in Port St. Joe makes families anxious
about the decision and the effect it will have on them, all the
way from Pensacola to Monticello. It is a major move by a major
provider of jobs in the Panhandle.
IT WAS EXACTLY 57 years ago, tomorrow, that the paper-
making firm did more than any firm to rescue the people within
a 100-mile radius of Port St. Joe out of-the grips of a grinding
poverty and into a future with a promise for their children. And
what a future it has proven to be!
Before that fateful St. Patrick's Day in 1938, the people of
Gulf County had the privilege of making as much of a living as
they could by fishing, crabbing, working in a saw mill, cutting
trees in the swamps to feed that saw mill, scratching the face of
pine trees in the deep woods to extract a cup full of pine sap
from which they had the pleasant job of boiling it over a wood
fire, extracting rosin, pitch, and other naval stores. Of course,
they had modem tools to work with. There were cross cut saws,
axes, wedges, hand operated draw knives, manpower, oxen pow-
er, mule power ...
And, no air conditioning, electric fans, central heat, electrici-
ty on demand, insulation. Entertainment was a trip down the
road to a neighbor's house who might have a. primitive radio, or
an occasional travelling outdoor moving picture show.
All of this came along with hordes of mosquitoes.
WE REPEAT, St. Joe Paper has been good for the Panhan-
dle. It has literally placed "a chicken in every pot," at least one
and more often two or three, cars in every garage. Gulf County
children have more opportunities to attend college than do
young people from any other county in Florida.
We never had it so good. Let's use whatever influence we
may have, individually, to see that this "good life" continues un-
disturbed, if at all possible.

bunker Down with Kes

by Kesley Colbert

Rumor Has It.....


There were decades in time
past when my reading in the
newspaper rarely got past the'
sports section. I remember a few
headlines with "Eisenhower did-
this" or "Ike says that" splattered,
across the front page in bold'
type. And I hit Junior high about
the time J. F. K. was moving into
the White House. But in October,

1961. the only missiles I was
reading about were being
launched by Frank Robinson,
Mickey Mantle and Roger Marts-
yes, most especially, Roger Maris.
When the baseball season
ended we had no use whatsoever
,for the paper until the following
spring. I spent the first fifteen
years of my life under the impres-
sion that if it wasn't a box score
or a by line on yesterday's game,
then it wasn't news.
; I sometimes think I'd a' been
better off if I had remained "ignor-
I ant"..
In the summer of 1962, that
big newspaper in Memphis sent a

reporter up to do a story on the Il-
legal whiskey being made in and
around our little town. Now. I'm
only fifteen years old. I'd never
actually seen any moonshine. But
I knew, like everyone else in
town, that John Clay Gallimore
used to run off a gallon or two
from a portable still that he'd
Kept most of the time out back of
Fairhope Point. The important
words of note in the last sentence
are "used to run". Mr. John Clay
had been out of business for
nearly three years. He'd sold his
"stuff' to one of those Hatcher
boys from over near Trezvant and'
moved to Nashville to be closer to

his sick Mother.
Folks, that big city reporter
investigated for three months.
Shoot. if he'd a' asked me I could
have given him the whole story in
five minutes. I would have even
taken him out to Fairhope Point.

My Dad smelled a rat from
the start. 'You've got to watch
those Communist pinko liberal
newspapers. They just exist to
cause trouble. 'The more you stir,
the more you sell' is their living
creed. They get some hot shot re-
porter fresh out of the Chicago
School of Journalism and they
turn 'im loose on a trusting and
unsuspecting public. The only di-
rection the editor gives is 'write
the facts when you can... ...'"
"Lonnie, that's enough" By
her tone it was apparent that
Mom had heard Dad's views on
newspapers before.
I was kicking myself for not
taking the front page more seri-
ous. I wonder if they ever show a
picture of one of those Commu-
nist pinko liberals-
"Dad," Leon interrupted my
thoughts, "why do you reckon
they're doing a story on Mr. John
Clay when he don't even live here
"Slow news summer, son. No
one has been shot down on Beale.
Street Nobody's jumped off the
Tennessee-Arkansas bridge. The
Republicans haven't been able to
work up a scandal-"
"Lonniel" :
The big time reporter set up
shop at the McKenzie Hotel. First
guy he interviewed was John
Clay's cousin, Highpockets Wad-
del. Highpockets used to haul
sugar in for Mr. John Clay until
he got to sampling too much of
the product .. ...
My Dad got a right good
chuckle out of that, "Now there is
a RELIABLE source"
The friendly enough reporter
finally got around to most of the
grown ups in town. Mary Beth
Wilkinson and Charlene Fenning
took to wearing hats on week
days and some how managed to
flifd lots of reasons'to stop by the
hotel: ."-- "

We had about half a line' on the
front page-the rest was contin-
ued on page 5. I thought the
heading- was a little excessive,
"Moonshining Runs Rampant In
Small Community". And the only
picture it showed was of Mr. Ed
Featherstone's house. The story
itself said Mr. Featherstone was
making, the "shine" in, the base-
ment of his house and two depu-
ties were slipping it out and
stashing it in Mr. Holland's milk
truck. Mrs. Fenning got her, name
in the article. She "informed" that
she had seen a 'light on in the
Featherstone house after dark. ,
John Clay Gallimore's name
was never mentioned.
Everyone knew that High-
. pockets had. had a big run-in
with Mr. Featherstone over in

week before the reporter showed

Terrorists In America
On Monday, February 13, there was an article in the News Her-
ald (page 5A) that I thought worthy of note. It was in the. upper
right-hand corner of the page with this headline: "Pakistani group
wants Madonna, Michael Jackson tried as terrorists".
"Michael Jackson and Madonna are the torch bearers of Ameri-
can society, their cultural and social values ..... that are destroy-
ing humanity," so said Nematullah Khan, a divisional chief of the
anti-American Party of Islam group.
Brother Nematullah had much more to say about Madonna and
Mr. Jackson. 'They are ruining the lives of thousands of Muslims
and leading them to destruction, away from their religion, ethics
and morality," he went on. 'Terrorists are not just those who set off
bombs; they are also those who hurt other's feelings," he added.
This startling news was in response to the extradition of Ramzi
Yousef, a suspect irin ,the World Trade Center bombing that killed
several people some time back.
Jamaat-e-Islami is a small but ,influential Pakistani religious
party. The article stated that they win only three or four Parliamen-
tary seats in Pakistan's elections each year. but political leaders are
wary of the group's ability to mobilize public opinion.
Mr. Khan also wants Britain and Sweden to extradite authors
Salman Rushlie and Taslima Nasrin to Pakistan so they can murder
them. Both authors have been sentenced to death by fundamental-
ist Muslims for insulting Islam.
Big Deall
Mr. KharV In my opinion. is headed down the right road but in
the wrong direction, if that makes any sense. It's like the pot calling
the kettle black.
I must agree with him on his statements about Madonna and
Mr. Jackson: they are a couple of slime-balls, in my opinion. But,
put them on trial in Pakistan for terrorists acts? No Sir! We need to
try them right here in America for committing lewd and lascivious
acts in public. We could pick the jury from the religious group in
Pakistan and try them in any state but California.
I have never been to one of their concerts and I have never
watched one of their videos all the way through. And it's not that
I'm a prude; it's Just that both of them, Michael and Madonna.
make me sick to my stomach.
Madonna was in the news recently. Right after she met Sharon
Stone, the movie actress, she stated that she was so impressed with
the actress that she would like to give her a "French kiss," to which

Thank y u, Ms. Stone, for those words of encouragement.
And then there's the reports of Michael Jackson and young
boys. He did pay the family of one of the boys a reported 15 million
dollars to drop molestation charges. That's big bucks to pay if one's
not guilty.
I take back what I said about trying them here in America.
Would someone just schedule both of them a concert in Islamabad.
Pakistan? Both of them might consider cleaning up their acts for
that one ..... If they lived long enough to get on stage.

Professor Visits Local School

Dr. Maxine Jones, Associate
Professor of History at Florida
State University, visited Port St.
Joe High School Tuesday to share
her insights into black history
and the roles of minorities during
and immediately following World
War II. During one session with
Mr. Herring's Honors American
History class. Dr. Jones shared a
number of interesting facts about
the Montgomery Bus Boycott in
preparation for their impending
trip to that city. Unknown to
many, according to Jones, much
of the movement was begun by
working women, even though
their male counterparts receive
most of the credit.
Afterward, Dr. Jones met
with a group of student leaders
and conducted a symposium on
the infamous Rosewodd Massacre
and efforts to win compensation
for the surviving families. She
was a member of a select team
which recently conducted re-
search in the events surrounding
the massacre and submitted its
findings to the state legislature.
The students posed some inter-
esting questions and offered a va-
riety of opinions concerning the
possibilities for a just settlement
after so many years.
In visiting Port St. Joe High
School, Dr. Jones volunteered her
services completely gratis, and of-
fered the opinion that the Port St.
Joe students were both informed
and well-mannered.
During the past several

.weeks, and coinciding with Black
History Month, American History
.students at the high school have
been studying the roles of Afri-
can-Americans, Japanese Ameri-
cans, and Native Americans, and
women like "Rosie the Riveter" on
the Home Front. They have be-

come familiar with the contribu-
tions of the Tuskegee Airmen, the
442nd Regimental Combat Team,
and the Marine "Code Talkers." A
number of students are interview-
ing survivors of the war years and
making presentations of their rec-
ollections of that time.

-Caladiums are tropical foliage
plants and are Tropical American
in origin, with a large portion of
them coming from the Amazon
basin in Brazil.
Two different types of caladi-
ums are available. These include
the fancy and lance leaved types.
The most popular and familiar is
the fancy leaved caladium. Large
somewhat rounded leaves are
characteristic of this type. The
distinguishing characteristic of
the lance leaved type is a narrow,
elongated leaf. The length of the
leaves is similar 'to the fancy
leaved type but the plant are usu-
, ally more dwarf in stature.
Caladiums add a cool look to
the summer garden and are easy
to grow, providing the gardener

guidelines. Plant the caladium tu-
ber in moderately rich well-
prepared soil in shaded or partly
shaded location. Soils for caladi-
ums should be porous and con-
tain organic matter. These condi-
tions insure aeration, drainage,
and sufficient water-holding ca-
pacity for proper growth. To ob-
tain these soil conditions it is
generally necessary to amend ei-
ther clay or sandy soils with or-
ganic matter. Sources or organic
matter include coarse peat moss,
well rotted manure, or well rotted
leaf mold.
The caladium is rugged, but
it will not tolerate the full sum-
mer sun. For best results, plant
caladiums in a semi-shaded loca-
tion. From 40 to 60 percent
shade is considered ideal. The
fancy leaved varieties can be used
in areas exposed to full sun for
one to two hours per day, prefera-
bly in the cooler morning hours.
Longer exposure destroys the
chlorophyll in the leaves and lim-.
its growth. Overexposure to full
sun may cause foliage bleaching
or even burning of the thinner
leaved varieties.
The caladiums prefers a
moist soil but not a soggy or
poorly drained one. Overwatering
in poorly drained soil will cause
decay of the fleshy tubers' or

roots. Mulching plants and main-
taining a high relative humidity
are beneficial in maintaining
healthy, turgid foliage. If soils are
allowed to dry, wilting occurs rap-
idly. Foliage loss is likely if plants
remain wilted for any considera-
ble length of time.
Caladiums respond to proper
fertilization. A complete fertilizer
should be mixed with the soil and
organic matter at planting time. A
minimum of two pounds of a gar-
den fertilizer (8-8-8) per 100
square feet (2 teaspoons per
square foot) is suggested. There-
after, apply one pound of 8-8-8
fertilizer, per 100 square feet (1
teaspoon per square foot), each
month during the growing sea-
Wait until all danger of frost
is past to plant out in the open.
Tubers should be planted two
inches deep and about 18 inches
apart. Pack the soil firmly around
them when planting.
If caladiums are started early
indoors or purchased in pots,
they should be hardened to out-
door conditions by gradually ex-
posing them to outdoor light and
heat. For early plants, sprout the
tubers in moist peat moss, sand
or loosp soil. Place in larger pots
or in garden beds as soon as the
roots begin to spread. If a bloom

everyone to formally take stock and see what you can do to prevent
poisoning in your children.
Highest Risk-the 1- to 3- year old child who will and does put
anything in his mouth.
Common Problems-medicines and household products include
aspirin, sleeping pills. iron pills, tranquilizers, moth balls,
furniture polish, drain cleaners, weed killers, insect and rat
poisons, lye, bleach and kerosene.
Safety Rules:
I. Keep dangerous products out ofsight atidin locked
2. Take extra care during times of family stress and when
S,,moving. "- "
3. Never call medicine "candy".
4. Buy medicine and household products In child resistant
packages, and use these packages as directed.
5. Never leave alcoholic beverages within a child's reach.
6. Keep syrup of Ipecac on hand and understand its use
(Syrup of Ipecac can be used to cause vomiting when a
child Ingests some materials. It should be kept on hand,
but not used unless medical personnel instruct you to do
so.) --
7. Keep poison control numbers by the telephone. ,
The poison control center is manned 24 hours a day and is
equipped to give advice on all possible poisons. Studies
show that 75% of poisoning exposures can be safely and
inexpensively managed at home.

Although we rarely hear about the physician that follows
the same old ways of daily house rounds, there are still
some of them left. In some remote areas it is the only way
for a doctor to bring health care to a community.
Today's modern physician serves in a very specialized
but much more efficient manner. He knows that if it is
possible for someone who is sick to get to the office, he is
better equipped to help them. With the facilities available he
is able to more quickly diagnose and treat his patients.
Should the services of a specialist be required, he will
suggest one.

' I ews On Dental 1Health


If you've lost a tooth and
never had it replaced, there are
changes going on in your
mouth that you may not notice
until a serious dental problem
develops. For one thing, some
of your teeth may be shifting
and tilting. Changes may also
be taking place in the roots and
supporting the bones of the
teeth on either side of the gap.
Teeth on either side are now
leaning toward the open space.
The opposing tooth on which
the missing tooth used to. rest
'is also probably moving toward
the open space. All in all, at
least seven teeth have proba-
bly been adversely affected be-
cause of the missing tooth.
This usually happens grad-

killing the


ually, but the problems begin to
mount. As the teeth shift and
tilt or lean into the open space,
this will affect your chewing ef
ficiency. Because your teeth .,
are out of alignment, extra
pressure is exerted on the.
bone and periodontal liga-
ments. This causes a weaken-
ing of supporting structures. If
you have a missing tooth, see.,
your dentist to find out what he,
would recommend to replace it
before serious problems devel-

Board of Directors
Three-Year Term-3 Vacancies

the Tyndall Federal Credit Union Board of Di-
rectors, and believe my qualifications will allow
ie to contribute to our continued success'and
I have served on the Tyndall Federal Credit
Union Board of Directors for the past fourteen
years. I am currently serving on the Building, Strategic Planning,
Budget, and Delinquent Loan Committees and I am currently
Chairman of the Insurance Committee. My goal during these
years has been to ensure personnel policies were fair, and our
continued growth in our facilities and equipment is the best to
serve our members.
I am currently employed as a Budget/Accounting Analyst and a
Financial Manager for the Headquarters Air Force Civi Engi-
neering Support Agency. I direct policy and procedures for our
Financial Managers worldwide.
My education is in accounting, budgeting and industrial engi-
neering and I have been employed by the Air Force for 37 years.
I truly wish to continue serving as a volunteer
for Tyndall Federal 'Credit Umon. Currently I'
am Treasurer of the Board of Directors, and
my first three-year term on the board is expir-
ing. I certainly enjoyed serving this first term
and was very pleased to receive the Volunteer
Achievement Program "Filene" Award for
Credit Union Volunteers. I served as Chairperson of the Market-
ing, Building, and Office Automation Committees. I also served
on other Board committees including Personnel, Strategic Plan-
ning, Budget, Execume, TQOM, and Asset/Liability Management.
My prior employment at WVriht-Patt Credit Union, Dayton Ohio;
recent experience as a TFCO Board Member; and management,
experience as Controller of Fust Charter FCU, Colorado springs ,
Colorado give me the background necessary to continue el-
fectively serving the membership of TFCU. In addition to my ed-
ucation and training in Accounting, I am seeking a degree in
Public Administration. I feel I am well qualified to continued
faithfully serving the TFCU. members, and would appreciate your-
I would like to continue to serve you as a
member of the Board of Directors at Tyndall
Federal Credit Union. I have approximately
nineteen years of Credit Union experience as
a volunteer and employee. I served as a mem-
ber of the Credit Corimmittee for eight years,
as a Board Member for nine years, and as a
Loan Officer for two years at Tyndall Federal Credit Union.
I currently serve as Secretary o the Board of Directors, in addition

Asset/Liability Management and Budget Committee. I have also
served the Gulf Coast Chapter of Credit Unions of the Flonda
Credit Union League as a Board Member, Education Chairman,
Vice President, and President during the past twelve sears.
I retired as a Chief Master Sergeant from the U.S. Air Force in
1978, after more than 28 years of active service. My formal edu-
cation consists of 65 credit hours in Human Resources, General
Management and Medical Technology. I have also completed nu-
merous Credit Union oriented training courses and programs. 1
hold the Edward A. Filene Award for having completed most of
the Volunteer Achiesement Programs offered by the Credit
Union National Association. I am a graduate of'ATC's NCO
Leadership School and the Air Force Senior NCO Academy.
I feel my experience and working knowledge of the Credit Union
movement will enable me to make a continued contribution to
the success of TFCU. This is a challenging opportunity requiring
not only knowledge and experience, but dedication and a willing-
ness to adapt to .changing times. I would appreciate your support
for re-election.
This is the best credit union in the Air Force!
I say this from 28 years of Air Force experi-
ence, fourteen of them here at Tyndall. TFCU
has been central to my success fi financial en-
deavors, whether real estate investments, life's
savings or 'home mortgage. My fervent desire
is to 'see this credit union maintain it's "personal service" heri-
tage, maximize savings return and ensure this "personal touch"
growvs with the Credit Union into the next century.
My background in planning, programing and budgeting as well as
engineenng, is most usefu to making informed decisions as your
voice on te Board of Directors. As Chief of the Wright Labora-
tory Operating Location at Tyndall AFB, I manage a force of en-
gineers, scientists, carpenters, admin., equipment operators, me-
chanics, and chemist who develop technology solutions to Air
Force civil engineering problems, with an annual budget of over
$14 million. Educationally, I have Bachelors & Master Degrees in
Mechanical Engineering and 28 years of experience managing
people, budgets and projects.
My wife of twenty years is the former Lois Freeman of Holt,
Florida and I am the proud father of one daughter, Jamie. I look
forward to earning your vote and continued service to OUR
Credit Union.

I have been impressed with the foresight, pro-
gressive management and efficient operations
of Tyndall Federal Credit Union and would
welcome the opportunity to contribute to its
continued growth and success as a member of
your Board of Directors.
i I am a recently retired U.S. Air Force colonel
with nearly 29 years of service. During my Air Force career, I
commanded an F-15 fighter squadron, TAC's largest fighter
wing and NORAD's largest air defense sector, and retired as
vice commander of the First Air Force. In these assignments, I
managed multimillion dollar budgets, wide-ranging personnel
programs, and complex weapons systems, gaining extensive lead-
ership and management expertise.
My education includes an M.S. in Management, a B.A. in Eco-
nomics, as well as the completion of numerous Air Force Qual-
ity, Leadership' and Management courses and seminars.
After serving all over the world in the Air Force, my family and
I have gotten "sand in our shoes", and made Panama City our
home. I am currently employed with McDonnell Douglas Corpo-
ration at Tyndall AFB and my wife is a guidance counselor at
Bay High School. We are both active in community activities. I
am a member of the Order of Daedalians, the Air Force As-
sociation and The Retired Officers Association.
I have long been committed to the principles of quality leader-
ship and management, and have personally seen the positive im-
pacts of focusing on customer satisfaction as the primary objec-
tive of many organizations. As a member of your Board of Di-
rectors, I will work diligently to ensure that this same intense'
focus on meeting the needs of ouir'customers, our members, will
make a great credit union even better. I ask for your support.

I believe a Tyndall Federal Credit Union
S Board of Directors member must have a var-
"'' ied career and educational background, in
order to effectively serve the membership.
I served on active duty in the U.S. Air Force
from 1973 to 1977, after which I earned a
Pl l ib '1 ~Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting
m the University of Wisconsin. I worked for seven yearsas a
Compliance Representative and Field Auditor of the Wisconsin
Department of Revenue. I am a Wisconsin Certified Public Ac-
countant and my Florida certification is pending. I recently com-
pleted a Master Of Science in Management from Troy State
Upon leaving the U.S. Air Force in 1977, I joined the 148th
Fighter Group, Minnesota Air National Guard, and served for
14 years as a traditional weekend guardsman. In 1991, I re-
turned to active duty when the 148th activated Detachment 1 at
TyndaUll AFB. I continue to serve with the 148th as Specialist
Flight Supervisor for the F-16 aircraft on alert at Tyndall AFB.
As a Master Sergeant, I feel I can serve the needs of both the
enlisted members, and other members of Tyndall Federal Credit
Union. I ask for the opportunity to do so.
It is my desire to serve on the Board of Di-
rectors for Tyndall Federal Credit Union. I
have previously served ten years as a member
of the Board of Directors and I have served
on every committee in the Credit Union. Dur-
ing my previous term on the Board, I served
as Treasurer (4 years) and also as .Chairman
of the following committees: Budget, Personnel and Building. I
was previously Chairman of the Supervisory Committee (Internal
Auditor) for 13 years.
I retired from the U.S. Navy as a Chief Navy Exchange Special-
ist. I also passed the Federal Government Certified Accountant
examination and served as a professional accountant' for the
Government for 20 years.
My educational background is as follows: University of Illinois -
1 year, University of Southern Mississippi 4 years; my major
:was Business Administration with a minor in Accounting. I also
attended Gulf Coast Community College six months studying
Computer Science. I have completed credit union courses Audit-
ing, Auditing I, Auditing II, History, Philosophy, Financial Re-
ports, and Managing Risk for Credit Unions. I am a member of
following organizations; Fleet Reserve, Florida Sheriffs Associa-
tion, Fraternal Order of Police Association, Florida" Police As-s.
sociation, NARFE, AARP, Florida Association of Highway .Pa-
trol D.A.V., I am a member of Parker United Methodist Church
where I serve on the Finance Committee, the Administrative
-Board and I am Chairman of the Trustees. I am retired and will
serve the members to the best of my abilities. I feel like the
Credit Union should make a small but sufficient profit and pay
higher dividends on shares and lower interest rates on loans,
consistent with good business practices, and should compensate
the employees with comparable wages and benefits as other fi-
nancial institutions.

It was my privilege to serve as a member of
Tyndall Federal Credit Union's Board of Di-
rectors from 1991 to 1993 and to be the
TFCU Treasurer for 1993. I served on the
following committees: Personnel, Building,
investment, Strategic Planning, Delinquent
Loan, and was-.Chairman- of-the Insurance-
S Committee for two years.
My educational background includes a B.A. in Economics and a
Master's Degree from the University of Virginia. I am a gradu-
ate of the Army Command and Statf College. Also, my military
career has afforded me the opportunity to serve in a variety of
command positions from flight commander to squadron com-
mander. Presently I am the 475th Weapons Evaluation Group
Deputy Commander.
Serving the community has always been important to me. It is
my strong desire to continue my service to the community by
fairly and faithfully representing every member of Tyndall Fed-
eral Credit Union. I would appreciate your consideration for
again electing me to the TFCU Board of Directors.
I would appreciate the opportunity to use my
management experience and education as a
member of your Board of Directors. My mili-
tary experience includes seven years in the
U.S. Navy submarine service as a nuclear re-
actor operator. Subsequently, I was em-
ployed by an insurance company in Hartford,
Connecticut for fourteen years and was responsible for managing
a multi-million dollar profit center. In this position, I gained sig-
nificant experience in strategic and business planning, budgeting,
supervision, marketing, customer relations and other manage-
ment skills which would be useful as a director of.Tyndall Fed-
eral Credit Union.
In 1985, I returned home to Bay County and founded a manage-
ment consulting company which specialzes in offering quality as-
surance services, to companies domestically and abroad. As the
principal consultant, I visit many companies in the U.S., Europe
and Asia. This has given me the opportunity to observe a variety
of management practices and such experience should be valu-
able as your director.
I have been licensed as a stock broker since 1969. In 1994 I
opened an office for Quest Capital Strategies, Inc. which offers
a broad range of financial securities at discount commissions. As
an Independent Account Executive, I frequently .have the op-
portunity to discuss the financial needs and concerns of local-
My education includes graduation from Bay High.School, an
A.S. and B.S. degree in Finance from the University of the
State of New York, and an M.B.A. from the University of Hart-
ford. I am a member of the American Society for Quality Con-
trol, the American Society for Nondestructive Testing, .and
North Bay Alert. I have authored many articles which have been
published in national magazines and in local newspapers. My
profile is included in Marquis' Who's Who in Science and Engi-









PA w.4P.q



From October, 1984 to December, 1993, I
had the privilege of directing the administra-
tion of Tyndall Federal Credit Union. As
Data Processing Manager, Executive Vice
President and President/CEO I had the op-
portunity to conceive and implement many
superior beneits that are enjoyed by the members and em-
p loyees of the Credit Union today.
From 1970 to 1984 I was Assistant Manager and Manager of a-
Credit Union in North Carolina. During this tenure, I was a
member of several committees of the North Carolina Credit
Union .League and was Chairman of the ATM committee which
established the existing statewide system.
In 1957 I was elected-by the members of Tallahassee City Erm-
ployees F.C.U. as their Volunteer Treasurer/Manager. I held
that position until 1970. During that time I was'chosen by the
Credit Unions of the Tallahassee Chapter of Credit Unions to
function as their President and representative to the Board of
Directors of the Florida Credit Union League. In that position' I
served as Treasurer for two years and was elected in 1969 to the
position of President.
My entire adult business career was dedicated and devoted to
the Credit Union Movement. Sixteen of my thirty-seven years of
experience were as a volunteer member of a Credit Union
Board of Directors.
I promise, if elected, to devote my experience, knowledge and
efforts toward the continued growth, expanded services, financial
stability, and a harmonious relationship between the members,
employees, and the Board of Directors.

Positive Action
Our Positive Action "Word for,
the Week" is SELF-
IMPROVEMENT. Has someone
ever criticized you? Unless you're
a hermit, the answer is probably
'Yes". Maybe someone told youe
that your hair was messy or your
clothes were wrinkled. Was your
first reaction to say, "Mind your
own business"? Then you know
how it feels to be criticized. The
next time you're about to criticize
someone else, remember that
feeling. If that person wants to
improve, so be it. Meanwhile, fo-
cus on improving yourself.

Republican Legislators

Promise "No New Taxes"

Early Bills Introduced Will Show

People If They Really Mean It!

One of the early signals on how far this Florida legislature with all
those, conservatives in the House and Senate will go to really cut govern-
ment and taxes will come in about two weeks when the Senate Natural
Resources Committee votes on an extension of the Advance Disposal Fee.
The ADF is one of those little insidious secret taxes politicians love to
use to slip by consumers and businesses to' keep money flowing up Taxa-
hasse way without even calling it a tax. This little two cent-per-c6ntainer
fee will add up to $26 million for the state treasury this fiscal year and a
big headache for Florida's merchants and consumers.
It is a nightmare to administer. So complex the bureaucrats the-
some 100 employees in the Department of Revenue--who administer it
admit they are often confused themselves. Consumers certainly don't
'know which items on the grocery shelf are included. Or for that matter if
it's the same fee (tax) they pay when they have the radiator in Old Lizzie
rodded or the oil changed.
But worst, it is a regressive tax, hitting working families, the poor,
and those on fixed incomes.
The interesting thing about the upcoming vote is that the committee
has a six-four Republican majority. The swing votes, it appears, are new
chairwoman Sen. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Spring Hill, and the Democrat
in the Senate, Charles Williams, of Live Oak; who has the most conserva-
tive reputation in.all the legislature.
Williams waffled"on the issue when interviewed on TV last week
when sponsors presented a petition to not extend the rule and allow it to
sunset He said he "hadn't made up his: mind, that the state may need
that money to help provide landfills and that he would have to give it
some serJous thought before deciding definitely. ."
Brown-Waite said she could also be the swing vote on the issue. "I
understand both sides. I dislike taxes as much as anyone, but I'm having
to consider 'how losing the revenue from those fees might impact local
governments to raise local taxes to finance needed landfills."
The,$26 million item is not that Important in itself, but as a weather
vane might very well tip real mean old reformers off that they'd better put
their stock in a constitutional amendment voted on by the people be-
cause your everyday politician-including Republicans and conservative
Democrats-don't really want to cut taxes and government like they say.
Another example is indications in this session already that Charter,
Schools (which will operate ,under contract to local school boards, but
not under failed statewide public school regulations) will probably get a
try as pilot projects in Hernando and Polk counties where bills have been
,filed for them and local boards have approved. Tax vouchers to follow
students to any private or public school of their choice will probably not
get a shot, although bills for them in Dade, Duyal, and Clay counties
have also'been introduced, and Education Commissioner Frank Brogan
wants to include a pilot project on them with money from his discretion-
ary fund.
The reason? Charter schools are a threat to the education bureau-
crats, but can be controlled enough to have them fail to educate children :
too, thus not threaten the entrenched public school bureaucracy. Vouch-
ers hit home because it makes public schools compete on a fairly even
playing, field with private and religious schools,.
Senate Higher Education Committee Chairman George Kirkpatrick,
D-Gainesville, and Senate Ways and Means Education Committee Chair-
man Fred Dudley, R-Cape Coral. are soft pedaling vouchers as not so
revolutionary. They point to lab high schools operating in University
towns in the state which for years have allowed students to bring their
tax money with them.
Trouble is those schools-catering to children of egghead professors
at the colleges-have been very selective. Up here in Tallahassee where'
Florida A &,M and FSU have operated such voucher schools for year,
snobby parents wanting to get their kids in often register them for the
waiting list at birth.
The most serious opposition to vouchers are black leaders who feel
, they will add further to segregation, chief among them Sen. Betty Holzen-
dorf,'D-Jacksonville, where an old desegregation suit is going through its
last gasps" for breath. This is unfortunate because as Jeb Bush sald"1flf'
his race for governor Inner city and poor rural school districts would be
the first to be used in pilot projects in vouchers.
Vouchers worked after World War Two when a generation of return-
ing servicemen went to every school out there at the time to catch up on,
the education they had lost while in service.

Capitol News Roundup:
It took lawmakers (and reporters) about 15 minutes after Gov. Law-
ton Chiles' opening day speech to the Legislature to see where he is going
this session: first out-Republican the Republicans -on crime, prisons and
government rule slashing, then come back in a special session on educa-
tion to offer his tax-reform (read Increase) constitutional amendment.
Leading Senate Democrats-a minority In the Senate for the first
time in 120 years-were good-old-days ecstatic over Gov. Chiles' state-of-
the-state address. "It was just great. Go ask the Republicans. They think
it was Just great too," said Pat Thomas. D-Quincy. while Sen. George
Kirkpatrick, D-Gainesville, nodded his head in agreement. Sen. Charles
Williams, D-Live Oak, said he thought it was a non-partisan speech that
could, lead to non-partisan cooperation and action that's good for the
people of Florida.
In it, Chiles praised new Commissioner Frank Brogan's initiative in
proposing stricter performance testing of students and turning control
back to the local school boards. In fact, he copied Brogan's suggestion to
repeal all rules and regulations, then re-enact those the legislature wants
to keep. He said in the next several weeks he will send his list he'd like to
see kept to the legislative leaders.
Chiles suggested this session would again be big on crime prevention
and prisons, but added: "Limited resources and competing priorities may'
restrict our ability to do all that needs to be done for our schools. That's
why we may consider coming back later this year for a special session de-
voted to education." .
The idea of a special session was rejected by Republican and Demo-
cratic leaders immediately, ,
Scott's Senate Speech: Although upstaged by Gov. Chiles' opening
day speech, soft-spoken Senate President Jim Scott, Fort Lauderdale,
called for action, not talk, on the conservation agenda of the first Repub-
lican Senate in 120 years.
"Some say higher taxes are absolutely unavoidable, I say higher tax-
es are dangerous fiscal drugs to which we must just say no," Scott said.
What's coming? The parameters of a fight between the Republican
Senate, House Speaker Peter Wallace and Gov. Lawton Chiles seem clear
already in the 1995, regular Legislative session. It's going to be a constitu-
tional amendment bill requiring a two-thirds vote of lawmakers to raise
new taxes and others that would restore voluntary school prayer in
schools, outlaw nudity in state parks on beaches, and funding education.
The Senate took the initiative in the first week, passing a crime pack-
age requiring prisoners to. serve 85 percent of their sentences, put career
criminals away longer, and hiking prison capacity by more than 4,000
beds. This week the Senate was headed toward clearing the two-thirds
vote for new taxes rule with the prayer and education bills expected to
come to the plate soon. .
Wallace said the crime legislation may be unstoppable, but there
would be a real fight on the rest. He even disagrees with ally Gov. Lawton
Chiles on the school funding, wanting to settle it now without going to a
special session later in the year.
President Clinton, probably without wife Hillary, will come to Talla-
hassee March 29-30 to address a joint session of the Florida legislature.

Gov. Chiles was the only Democrat to be elected in a big state in Novem-
ber. So Clinton and Chiles are interested in seeing how they can push
the Democratic agenda for 1996. Should be fascinating to Floridians anid
all Americans. Clinton is to go on to Miami for an Important speech too.
Prison Fury: A West Palm Beach grand jury just made the upcoming
Senate confirmation hearing for Corrections Chief Harry Singletary more
hazardous with an indictment of a prison inspector and sweeping criti-
cism of the operation of Glades Correctional Institution where six killers
escaped in January.
The jury said they found Inmates had too much free time, the state-
wide emergency escape response plan was inadequate, arid roadblocks
were not set up. The inspector-Paul :Welbom, 29- was charged with
tampering with a witness for trying to cause prison chaplain Doris Miller
to withhold testimony. Miller said sheqcomplained 'about,noises under
the chapel on the tunnel escape route and the escapees had obtained
flashlights from employees.
