oberts' Road Paving Bid w by A Bunch
Hosford Firm's Bid Beats Competition by $65,743.50; Each District GettingAnh Equal Amount
C. W. Roberts Construction
Company was unanimously
awarded the rebid for the Secon-
dary Road and Bridge, Fund pav-
ing project by the Gulf County
Commission with a bid of
$507,864.40 at their regular
scheduled meeting Tuesday eve-
: The Board had decided -to re-
bid the ,paving project after all
bids opened at the March 14th
meeting were considered out-of-
line with the engineering esti-
mates and far above the
$350,000 available through the
Secondary Road and Bridge pav-
Three bids were received for
the paving with Robert's bid of
$507.864.40 coming in $65.-
743.50 under the next lowest bid-
der, Florida Asphalt & Paving Co.,
which bid $573,607.98. Panhan-
dle Grading & Paving .bid
$622,146. Robert's bid was
$91,296.00 under the low bid re-
ceived at the March 14th meeting
of the Board when Florida As-
phalt &*Paving Co. entered the
low bid of $599,161.
The Board members still
must cut $157,864.40 worth of
road paving from Its list in order
to fall within the parameter of the
$350,000 available. Each of the
five commissioners were allowed
$70,000 of paving funds for their
district and had submitted a list
of roads which need paving. All
five districts came in above the
$70,000 allotted with District
One at $106.276, District Two
$126,538, District Three
$92,445, District Four $88,737,
and District Five, $93,861. The
motion to award the' contract was
contingent upon the commission-
ers cutting their respective list to
fall within the realm of the
$70,000 allowed to each of them.
When contacted, George Rob-
erts told The Star, "We are serving
the people the same today as my
dad did 20 years ago."
Apply for Erosion Study Grant
for Stumphole Area
The Board pushed forward in
their efforts to do something
about the erosion problem that
exists at the Stumphole area of
the Cape. For the past several
years the Gulf of Mexico has been
inching closer and closer to C-30-
E, raising the fears that if the
road bed is undermined then
there would be nothing to stop
the Gulf of Mexico from cutting
i Its way into St. Joseph's Bay,
creating ecological problems in
the bay and separating the St. Jo-
seph Point from the mainland.
The Board approved a resolu-
Uon to apply to the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection for a 75/25 grant to help
finance an estimated $100,000
According to District Five
Commissioner Warren Yeager,

mine the effects of the erosion.

Bay SperSee A Glimmer ofHope
Win First Round In Court to Interpret Net Measurement Formula
Shrimp fishermen who ply
their trade in St. Joseph's Bay
and Apalachicola Bay experi-
enced a ray of hope last Friday in
Franklin Circuit Court, as they
attempted to convince Circuit,
,Judge P. Kevin Davey that the
Florida Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion was using the wrong formula
in determining what size nets
would be alloyed after the net
ban rule takes ,effect on July I of
Floyd pointed out that the
language of the amendment re-
quired the 500 feet of mesh area
to be measured with the meshes
in their "open" as opposed to
"stretch" mesh or closed position.
A "stretch" mesh is twice as long
as. the "open" mesh bar length
and therefore use of the longer
measurement would greatly re-
duced the square foot .area of the
net actually allowed to be con-
tained in a trawl.
Furthermore the shrimpers
attorney, J. Patrick Floyd, of Port
St Joe was successful in convinc-
ing Judge Davey, Friday, that the
FMC and FCAr measuring formula
for the nets allowed only about
half the actual area of the mesh
portion of the net which the Con-
stitutional Amendment permits to
be used in shrimping operations.
'The size net they would force
upon the shrimpers would effec-
tively put them out of business,
but if the proper size is allowed
for use, the small bay shrimper
may survive," Floyd said.
FILE FOR JUDGMENT
Assistant Attorney General
Jonathan Glogau had filed for a
summary judgment by the court
claiming there was no factual dis-
pute that a net designed by Bu-
ford Golden to meet the net ban
requirements, was illegal under
terms of the new constitutional
provision.' This would have pre-
vented the shrimper's argument
from being heard Friday and de-
layed any appeals of the provision
prior to the effective date in July.
Attorney Floyd was success-
ful in introducing a mock-up of
the actual net the shrimpers pro-
posed using and was successful
in showing the Court the net
measured only 478 square feet.
The constitutional amendment al-
lows a 'net consisting of 500
Glogau had to admit that un-
der the FMC'smeasuring formula
the subject net's size had been
overstated by approximately
100%. He claimed the error on
FMC's part was "irrelevant be-
cause of the language in the
amendment. It's too late to com-
plain about the language of the
amendment," he. stated.
Judge Davey took exception
to Glogau's statement, which is
exactly what the shrimpers
wished to accomplish with their
day in court.
USED WRONG FORMULA
"That's what we wanted,"
Floyd said. 'We knew the formula
they wanted to apply would pro-
duce an absurd result not intend-
ed by the voters-it would only
permit the netters less than 250'
actual square feet of mesh actual-
ly contained in the net which is
so small the net would not be
functional or commercially feasi-
ble. This was labeled as a 'limit'
on netting not an elimination of
net fishing. Under the formula set
out in the amendment and meas-
ured properly we were successful
in showing the court the net
shrimpers propose using after
July 1 measured only 478 square
feet. We actually brought a net
into court, spread it out on the
floor and measured it for them,"
RULING IN 10-14 DAYS
Judge Davey agreed with the
shrimpers, that the nets con-
tained less than 500 square feet
of mesh area and said he would
issue a ruling in the case within
10 to 14 days.
Floyd pointed to the vague-
ness and conflicting language in
the amendment, in addition to
the obvious error in measurement
methods for nets; all of which the
Judge must examine and study.
Floyd told The Star the. Ma-

BA,;PAT.TL IS IN TIHE air in Gulf County and the young
"Babe Ruth's" take the program and the success [or failure] of
their team seriously, in a manner of speaking. They care wheth-
er their team wins or not, but it's not the end of the world if they
don't win. They just shrug it off and come right back the next
day and try again. They just enjoy themselves and if their team
is a winner, then that's just so much icing on the cake. They
have had their good time.
We commend the sponsors of the program over the past 35
years or so. The little boys' league in Port St. Joe has remained
alive and strong throughout all those years and has even grown
and prospered,. until it now encompasses 16 teams offering a
chance to play organized baseball to 208 young boys and girls in
the Port St. Joe area.
THIS IS A. PROGRAM which is offered year after year, and
still the youth continue to come and participate. The adults con-
tinueto, come and guide the teams and run the league. There is
no shortage of sponsors. It's a far cry from that first year of Little
League, when six sponsors had to be persuaded to put up their
money to sponsor the initial half dozen teams of 15 boys each.
The first coaches had to have their arms twisted just ,a
might, in order to get them to donate their time for the three
months of play and it has been operating on a volunteer basis
BUT NOW THE PARENTS who come out to watch the games
are another matter.
Sometimes the audience contains a rabid fan or two and
things get a' little touchy on the field when certain teams are
playing. Parents take the game more seriously than do the
players, their children.
Little boys league is an organization designed to provide a
.place for the boys and girls to develop their playing skills. They
"have a good time doing it and don't need parents, acting like ado-
lescents giving them bad examples.

No New Taxes
AN ARTICLE OUT OF Tallahassee last week discussed tax-
es, as articles are prone to do when the Legislature is in session.
More specifically, the article explored options for getting things
financed in this era of no new taxes, or what the Republican's.
view as "their contract with America".
The article discussed a need for more money if the lawmak-
ers provided all they had interpreted as being what the public
wanted, along with their demand for "no new taxes".
Many lawmakers were described as looking over their shoul-
ders at the movement which kicked many of their cohorts out of
office last year for failure to exercise what the public determined
to be proper economies. These same lawmakers, ever anxious to
perpetuate their own terms in office, are frantically weighing rev-
enueources and potential sources against expressed desires.,
S&IOOL FUNDING IS the victim of all the conjecture about
'poss-frle shortfalls in the budget. You don't have-to be a Legisla-
tor for too many days until you learn that if you are short of
money, always be short in the education department. That way
there will always be a groundswell of support for additional reve-
nue sources. It's OKX to raise taxes to support education, but
don't you dare raise taxes for more people to staff the revenue.
department, no matter how badly they are needed!
Playing the game according to the established rules allows
the Legislature to have its cake and eat it too.
So, what do we do?
WE DON'T WONDER in the press what is happening to all
those lottery dollars which were ear-marked for education. Peo-
ple may then learn they were substituted for taxes to. support
the every day operation of the' school system and we can't allow-
that information to become public.
Instead we cry about how the school system Is going to suf-
fer from the shortfall in income. We come up with the solution
that each district should "raise their own taxes to finance their
operations' for whatever they -need over and above the state
The war cry is,.;'"We'll just change WHERE the taxes are
raised." We say that if they plan that method of financing the
schools, then lets apply the same formula to every other item in;
the state budget. Then, let's see whose heads roll!
I'm a little puzzled this morn-
ing. Two Americans have been
"caught", "tried", "convicted" and
imprisoned in Iraq. Their crime,

Come 'on, they're slap in our face

Gulf War. It's tied in with the eco-
nomic sanctions imposed against
Iraq since that conflict. And the
sanctions, as I understand it, are
related to the dismantling of Iraqi

to Hamdoon America into coming

Signs of Spring Are Becoing Evient in Port St. Joe
THE SIGNS OF spring are
becoming more frequent every
day, here in the Panhandle. The
redbuds have already bloomed,
the trees are budding, the pine
pollen has covered everything and
been washed off by the rain, the
robins have made their flight
through town and the azaleas are

been left thick for them to congre-

there, every day, playing on and
around the, branches, scavenging

day. They seem to delight in rob-
bing the bird feeders anyhow.
I KNOW IT IS spring when
my birthday comes around again.
Spring and I got here at the same
time. It got here on Monday of
last week and the kids mercifully
didn't make a big thing of it and
rub it in that I was beginning to
get long in the t6oth.
My number last grandson,
Austin, gave me a card which
seemed to express the occasion
best. Austin is the baby of the
clan and more than a little bit
mischievous. His card contained
words to the effect, "I wanted. to
give you a card with a $20 bill in-
side" on the front. Then, when' I
opened it up and looked inside, it
said,,"But I looked through every'
card in the store, and couldn't
I received more gifts and:
wishes along that same line.; I
don't get no respect.
But God showed proper re-,
spect and offset all the other re-
marks, when He allowed me to be'
born on the first day of spring.
There's no excuse for anybody to ,
forget my birthday and forget:to :
get me a present!
ANOTHER SIGN OF spring is
the advent of Daylight Saving
Time Saturday. A sure sign of the
spring and summer activities is
the annual 'adjusting of the clock
and "springing ahead" an hour on
Saturday, to a longer day.
The changes every year make
half the people mad and the "fall-
ing back" an hour in the fall, to
standard time makes the other
half of the nation mad.
You can't please everybody at
one time no matter how hard one
tries. Most people who are per-
turbed at the time change are up-
set because the government is
messihg with the time and the
rest are upset because they don't
just leave it as is,the year around,
one way or another
But you just get ready. The
time is going to change Saturday
night and it will remain changed
That's a long time isn't it?
JuAt you wait, the time will be
changed back to standard time

Tupelo Honey Marks Spring
Springtime along the' Apa-
lachicola River is marked by the
'harvesting of tupelo honey. The
white tupelo blooms from early
April to early May and produces a
good quality honey with the
unique tupelo flavor. Black tupelo
blooms before white tupelo and is
used to build up bee colonies.
Black tupelo yields a darker col-
ored honey which granulates and
is usually sold as bakery-grade
honey. The Apalachicola River ba-
sin, along with the Ochlockonee
and Choctawhatchee Rivers, are
the only places in the world
where certified tupelo honey is
Tupelo honey can be used in
cooking as well as spread. For
best results, follow these tips:
One cup of honey contains
1/4 cup of liquid. Deduct 1/4
cup of liquid from the recipe
when using one cup of honey.
One cup of honey is equal to one
cup of sugar.
Honey retains moisture to a
greater extent than does sugar.
Honey cakes and cookies will re-
main moist longer than those
made with sugar.
Use low to moderate oven
temperatures for baking. Honey
caramelizes at a low temperature
and causes baked products to

r CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D. j
f-~~ ~~ ~~ *,"
Basically it is better to avoid serious problems than to be forced
into painful and expensive treatment Health care in children is
built on prevention-more arid more prevention!
Children should not be allowed to become burned and blistered
in the sun. Presently available sunblocks are very effective and
should be used. Planning to be outside early morning and late
afternoon will avoid the most intense rays of the sun. Hats 'and
shirts will also help.
Bites are painful and itchy for children. Small children are'
unable to stop scratching. The scratching often allows germs in the
skin to start an infection-either a boil or impetigo. Avoid ants,
bees, yellow Jackets and: hornets. Work toward prevention of
mosquito bites. Since mosquitoes are most active in the evening
hours, if a child must be outside in the evening have him wear a,
long sleeved shirt and long pants. Repellent:can be applied to the
shirt collar. Avoiding mosquito bites will also avoid malaria and
Anyone who takes small children to a river, lake, pool or ocean
should be prepared to watch them constantly. It is not fair to expect
strangers in the area to watch and protect your children. Always
have a clear view of your child. Do not let them play around boats
or pilings dr in ,areas where your vision is 'obscured. Jet skis are
going to become a greater danger as they become more prevalent.
Collisions with swimmers will be very detrimental. Jet skis should
not be allowed near swimming areas.
When children play in the bay or shallow gulf waters have them
wear beach shoes and learn to shuffle their feet as they walk so
they do not step on stingrays.
Even dead jellyfish and Portuguese Men-of-War are capable of
stinging-the toxic protein remains on the tentacles. Children
should not handle dead fish, dead crabs, jelly fish or Portuguese
Prevent cramps and loss of excessive fluids by exercising in the
cooler parts of the day. .
If cramps do occur they will usually respond to massage and
giving extra fluids. When symptoms of being excessively hot occurs
move the child to a cool environment and give extra liquid. Liquid is
usually all that is needed. Prevent loss of. liquid by giving extra
throughout the day.

If you ate corn on the cob last
summer, and found that it tasted
especially sweet, you might have
ben enjoying an extra sweet corn
variety that was developed several
years ago by the University odf
Florida's Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Science. Although this
hybrid, called Florida Staysweet,
has not replaced standard popu-
lar corn varieties, it has been
gaining increased use by both
commercial growers and home
As its name implies, Florida
Staysweet corn keeps its sweet
flavor long after it's been harvest-
ed ufilike common sweet corn.
which begins to taste starchy
soon after it's picked. According
to Extension Vegetable Specialist
Jim Stephen, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Ag-
riculture Sciences, the key to this
hybrid's sweetness is in its genet-
A new gene added to Florida'
Staysweet gives this corn a nine
percent sugar content, compared
to only a three percent sugar con-
tent in regular hybrids. The high-
Ser sugar content also means that
Florida Staysweet has less starch
in its kernels than regular hy-
brids. Obviously, those factors
give variety a true "staysweet"
In addition to its improved
flavor.' Florida Staysweet has
shown some resistance to north-'
ern leaf blight, a serious fungus
disease of many of the common,
sweet corn hybrids.
If you'd like to include Florida
Staysweet in your backyard gar-
den this year, you should be able
to obtain the seeds from your lo,-
cal garden center. The seeds wiU
be packaged in a moisture proof
bag, and they should be stored in
a cool dry area. If the seal is brok-
en, moisture in the air will cause
the seeds to lose their, vitality
quite rapidly. So, a seed bag that
has been opened should be re-
sealed as soon as possible.
Recommended planting dates
for Florida Staysweet are from
mid-March to mid-April in North
Since this hybrid has so little
starch in the kernels, its rate of
germination and degree of seed-
ling vigor may be less than for the
commonly grown sweet corn hy-
brids. To solve this problem, sim-

bors may be growing by at least
500 feet of distance. This is nec-
essary because pollen from any of
the regular sweet corn hybrids
that falls on Florida Staysweet

their excellent flavor.
In summary, Florida Stays-
weet is an improved sweet corn
hybrid, developed by the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agriculture Sciences, which
Is gaining popularity with com-
mercial growers and backyard
gardeners alike. It has three
times the sugar content of the

Fishing Season Open
On St. Vincent Island
St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge"s 1995 public fishing sea-
son has been set. Refuge Manager Donald J. Kosin has announced
that fishing will open Iin .Lakes 1, 2, and Oyster pond, April 1
through September 30. Fishing will open in Lakes 3, 4, and 5, May
15 through September 30. The fishing season has been designed to
/minimize disturbances to nesting bald eagles. The St. Vincent
Creek water control structure will be open during April, May and
June. Low water levels may make access difficult to Lakes 1
through 5 during that time period. Due to lake drawdowns and ren-
ovations, the fish populations in Lakes 1-4 are low.
*.Sport fishing will be allowed in accordance with all applicable
state and federal regulations and subject to the following specific
(1) Fishing is permitted from sunrise to sunset;
(2) Boats with electric motors are permitted (all other motors
must be removed from the. boats and secured to a refuge motor
rack with a lock and chain);
(3) Boats may not be left on the refuge overnight, and camping
(4) The use of live;minnows as bait is not permitted.

As Land Management Tool
with naming our ,state "Florida-
the Land of Flowers." The major
reason that Florida was a natural
wildflower garden.when the Span-
iards arrived was that lightning-
caused fires crept across the land
these fires, were started by light-
ning; others were started by Indi-
ans. Indians used fires extensive-
ly throughout this region for
thousands of years to attract
game, to increase edible plant
foods and to reduce mosquitoes.
Pioneer farmers and cattlemen
followed the Indians' example and
used fire to Improve natural
range for their livestock. Florida
was."a Land of Fire."
Today : resource managers
and biologists prescribe fire. for
the health of the land just as doc-
tors prescribe medicine for the
health of the human body. The
fires are planned by professional
biologists and conducted by
trained resource managers to im-
prove the condition of the land.
The fires have low flames, move
slowly and are not a threat to
wildlife, In fact, wildlife is attract-
ed to the freshly burned areas.
Deer, turkeys and many-other
species of wildlife are. commonly
seen moving on to burned areas
as soon as the fire passes.
If you enjoy wildlife and sup-
port the protection of endangered
species such as the Florida scrub
jay, then encourage the use of
prescribed fire in the manage-
ment of natural lands. Many spe-
cies of plants and animals cannot
survive if, their habitat is not
burned every few years. If you en-
joy scenic natural landscape with
abundant wildflowers and butter-
flies, then support the land' man-
agers' right to use prescribed fire.
If. you believe homes should be
protected from wildfires, then en-
courage the reduction of hazard-
ous, natural fuels with prescribed
The perpetuation ,of wildflow-
ers, butterflies, birds and other
wildlife is dependent upon the
continuation of prescribed bum-
ing as a land management tool. If
you support the wise manage-
ment of public lands then. don't
complain if these lands produce
.some smoke or ashes one or two
days a year. Instead. complain if
they don't. Fire is as important to
Florida's pinelands and grass-
lands as rain Is to the rain forest.
'Realtors promote the advan-
tages of owning a house next to a
state park or nature preserve
with its scenic beauty and wild-'
life. But they fail to mention that
natural areas produce mosqui-
toes during the summer that will
feast on you while you are cook-
ing-out in the backyard. Rac-
coons will raid your garbage can
and tear through the screens on
the porch to eat your dog's food.
You may experience smoke and
ashes that drift to your home
from periodic prescribed fires.
Lots of smoke is often pro-
duced in South Florida when sug-
ar cane fields are. burped-off be-
fore the harvest. Probably the
worst smoke problem is. caused
by burning debris at land clearing
projects. Piles of debris may smol-
der and produce smoke for days.
In contrast, smoke from pre-
scribed bums is of very short du-
ration because the fire is planned
and conducted so as to produce
the least amount of smoke and to
send the smoke in a direction so
as not to be a nuisance. Land
managers 'strive to control smoke
by using winds to direct it away'
from roads, residential areas,
hospitals and airports.
If you live near a state park
or other natural area and you
have a respiratory ailment: that
could be aggravated by smoke.
then contact the park or land'
manager to request that you be.
notified before a prescribed fire is
conducted so that you can ar-
range to be away from home the

an effort to help Floridians better
understand energy and the role it
plays in our lives. The Florida En-

Community Affairs has designed
the Governor's Energy and Envi-

take an active role in learning
about Florida's energy use and
how it relates to environmental

Demonstration At WES'
Lt. Larry M. Costanzo of Par-"
ama City and Deputy Greg Cole
of Gulf County presented an in-
formative demonstration on the
use of seat belts. Seat belts do
save lives and that message was
brought home loud and clear at
our school. Lt Costanzo told the
students that even at 10 miles
per hour,, four times one's body
weight is forced on one at the
time of impact.
When one is strapped in by a
seat belt, one is "part" of the car
and doesn't keep moving when
the car strikes a tree or other im-
movable objects. (Remember New-
ton's Lawl) Brave ones at our
school who took the ride were.

Grandmother Tackles Capitol
SA Hospital Problem
Lawmaker Suggests the Churches
Should Teach Family Values to Kids
Helen Spivey, 66 year old great-grandmother of the Florida House of
Representatives, didn't know what to expect when she came from Crystal
River for her first legislative session this month, but she has managed to
take on one of the biggest lobbies in the state-the Florida Association of
The crux of her House Bill 621 is that two staff members of the hos-
pital (one can be a volunteer) must be in the recovery room at all times
with a patient after an- operation. It's the only solution, she ways, to pre-
venting another Bruce Allen Young from raping some sedated patient
when they are most defenseless.
Young, a registered nurse and former Pinellas County school teacher,
pleaded no contest to raping seven women one a 15 year-old in the re-
covery room 'at Citrus Memorial Hospital and was sentenced to 17 years
"A rape is equal to losing a foot or an arm and it's going to take two
people in the recovery room of hospitals to assure it will never happen
again," Rep. Spivey said.
Her bill was passed out of the House subcommittee on aging and re-
habilitative services last week, but Rep. Alzo J. Reddick, D-Orlando,
tacked an amendment to it striking the provision requiring two hospital
staffers in the recovery room. ,He had help, Mrs. Spivey said, in. gutting
the bill's primary intent from Rep. Stephen R. Wise, R-Jacksonville. and
Rep. Carl Littlefield, R-Dade City.
"I'll withdraw the bill if that bad amendment stays on when it goes to
the floor," Mrs. Spivey told the subcommittee. The bill goes next to the
full committee. '
The feisty great-grandmother, who has three children, eight grand-
children and a husband called "Daddy Bear" William, said she intends to
fight for her bill.
Reddick said two staff people in the recovery room would be too ex-
pensive for hospitals. ,. I
Spivey said not so, the costs would be passed on to patients and
families who would be glad to pay the slightly higher cost.
"I realize now I am fighting a well organized hospital lobby," she said
after the meeting, "but I know I've. got a good 'bill. Remember how the
number of robberies plummeted when convenience stores put two people
on duty In them." I .
Her bill calls for hospitals to investigate allegations of sexual miscon-
duct by its personnel and report every allegation to the hospital adminis-
trator, the state's central abuse register, the hospital governing board,
and the local police. It provides for education sessions on abuse and ex-
pands the definition of "disabled adult" under the Protective Service Act
to inclUde persons temporarily incapacitated because of medical treat-
Although her major bill may have. been shot down, another health
care bill she authored passed the House Business and Professional Regu-
lations Committee anid was sent to appropriations. It provides that any
person who has had a license'or certificate revoked or suspended for sex-
ual misconduct not be allowed to apply for another position unless the li-
cense or certificate was fully reinstated. Young, before becoming a nurse
at the hospital,- left his school teaching job under a cloud of sexual mis-
conduct, but hospital officials didn't know it.
Turn to Churches? Bill Mattox, an author-researcher and vice presi-
dent of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., shocked a few
members of the conservative James Madison Institute of Tallahassee last
'week when he said the best way to restore family values is not to Jus.t
kick poor mothers off welfare for having illegitimate' children, but for
churches to provide real leadership in fighting divorce.
He told a luncheon audience that church members outnumber wel-
fare mothers enormously.'
"Somebody is going to have to provide the leadership. I'm not in-
clined to think churches are better qualified than government to do it,"
Mattox said. ,
He said the focus should be on the future, not the past. "It's easier to
blame the welfare state than take some responsibility for the high divorce
rate, fajyly breakdown, and increase of crime," he told the predominant-
ly white male crowd, .including former state Rep. Tim Ireland. Republican"
whip from Ft. Myers who has moved to Tallahassee to practice law. ,"'
Another shocker he delivered was that the Bible Belt southern states
I1 where Protestant churches dominate have the higher divorce rates in the
country. The lowest rates are In womanizer Sen. Ted Kennedy's Massa-
chussets, and in New York where there are more Catholic and strong
family-orien ted Jewish families.
Even Jim Towey, secretary of the Florida Health and Rehabilitative
Services, agrees government is enslaving people by making them depen-
dent on welfare) but he thinks business corporations not the churches.
and charities should take the lead in welfare reform programs.
"Corporations will help if they know their money isn't going to be
wasted," said Towey who once worked with Mother Teresa'and almost be-
came a Catholic priest
Uncle Clem Rednek on Flat Creek in Gadsden County said the "only
and bestest way for Amerika" to make a comeback is through personal
spiritual belief that used to be found in the market place and the church-
'Taxpayers would help too iffen-they knew their money isn't going to
be wasted," Clem said when I checked out the week's news with him.
Capitol News Round-Up:
More questions were raised last week on whether Department of La-
bor,Secretary Doug Jamerson should be. confirmed by the Florida Senate
as investigators look Into charges he signed a back-dated letter authoriz-'
ing a nine million dollar transfer 'to'Tallahassee Community College for
an experimental program.
Nothing has been proven as yet but still undisclosed whistle blowers
in the Department of Education have revealed they may have committed
illegal acts ordered by their superiors while Jamerson was still serving as
Florida Education Commissioner and head of the Department of Edtca-
'. The investigation was requested by Education Commissioner Frank
Brogan who defeated Jamerson in the November election. Jamerson was
then appointed by Gov. Chiles as Labor Secretary.
As a result of the allegations, the DOE said it would take back the $9
million until the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation is

Investigators are, also looking into charges that DOE employees

the new Republican administration took over from Jamerson.
Jamerson has also been criticized for giving key workers in his un-
successful campaign for education commissioner and a distant cousin
high paying jobs'in the labor department he now heads via appointment
by Gov. Lawton Chiles.
CASH CAP ON BABIES: State Sen. Ginny Brown-Waite headed up a
press conference of conservative legislators who are calling for a cash cap
on women on welfare who keep on having babies.
The bill-authored by Brown-Waite, R-Spring Hill, and Rep. Carl Lit-
tlefield, R-Dade City-forbids the state from increasing welfare payments
$62 a month for each new child.
"I wouldn't debate with you that women are having children for the
additional $62 a month, but I believe that some of that is going on,"' said
Sen. Charles Williams, D-Live Oak who called the press conference out-
side the Senate chamber last week to back the bill.
BOOT CAMP figures cited by Manatee County Sheriff Charlie Wills
underreported the number of youths who have been arrested after com-
pleting the training camp for Juvenile criminals. In an earlier report sher-
iff officials reported only 20 percent of the camp graduated were rearrest-
ed. A separate report from the Juvenile Justice Department put the
figure at 75 percent. Wells said the mistake was made because of an in-
advertent failure to check a database of juvenile arrests.
CHARTER SCHOOLS were unanimously approved in the House Ed-
ucation Committee last week. but not before black legislators were as-
sured by Speaker Peter Wallace. D-St. Petersburg. their concerns would
be considered in the Appropriations Committee where It now goes. Black
lawmakers said charter schools-which are run by private educators un-
der contract to district boards-could take tax dollars from the public
SGULF SHERIFF: Suspended Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison was giv-
en the maximum 51 -month prison sentence for his conviction on charges
of coercing oral sex from female jail inmates. U. S. District Judge Lacy
Collier said he normally would have exceeded the guidelines for officials
who violate the public trust, but didn't this time because of Harrison's
previously spotless 30 years in law enforcement Harrison maintained his
claim of innocence.,
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Now I know why they changed the name of
the Senate Ways and Means Committee. They found the ways to be
mean," said Sen. Betty Holzendorf, D-Jacksonville, who has found it
tougher going for her programs since the Senate went Republican in the
November election. .

their costs by reducing the ainount of garbage created, and also
encourage more cost-effective management of solid waste by lo-
cal governments. The results of the solid waste calculations for

30, 1994 are as follows:
Monthly cost of trash collection ....................... ....... ......... $5.48
