County Declares War
Every year for about an eight month span between April
and November, mosquito arid man are at odds with each oth-
er in Gulf County. This year has already proven to be no ex-
ception as unseasonably wet weather has produced a bump-
er crop of the blood-sucking critters.
Gulf County's Mosquito Control Director, Paul Wood,
told The Star that the county started their annual spraying
program Monday night to help in controlling the mosquito
population. He said county crews would be spraying five
nights a week, covering the entire county twice a week, alter-
ing their spraying schedule throughout the season, accord-
ing to the weather and mosquito population.
According to Wood, traps have been set in areas around
to county to get a count on the mosquito population and
measure the effectiveness of the spraying process. Trapped
mosquitos are then sent off to be tested for St. Louis enceph-
alitis, and Eastern Equine encephalitis to insure that no dis-
ease carrying insects are lurking about in Gulf County.
Within the next few weeks the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment will be putting two new spraying and trucks into ser-
vice which were recently purchased by the county to upgrade
their mosquito control equipment.
The annual business report
and points of interest will be pre-
sented by Cooperative officials. A
door prize will be given to each
member attending, and 40 prizes
with a grand prize of a TV/VCR
combination will be given away
during the day.
City Qualifies for 5% Reduction
in Flood Insurance Cost
Verification has been received
From the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency that the City's
application for reclassificaton for
flood insurance had been ,ap-
proved. Mayor Pate said the city
went from a class 10 to a class
nine rating under the National
Flood Insurance rating program.
which should reflect a 5% reduc-
tion in flood Insurance costs.
In applying for the reclassifi-
cation through FEMA the City
had to meet the criteria spelled
out through the process. This in-
cluded such things, as, drainage
ditch and storm water drainage
maintenance and providing infor-
mation to the public concerning
flood prone areas.
The 5% reduction is good for
five years before the City must go
through the application process

It's Due Him
HOLD THE PHONEI Wait just a ding-dang minute Governor
Chiles! We think you are just a little bit off base here. Your pro-
posal to withdraw Al Harrison's pension is a slightly drastic
move, don't you think? We understand you are piqued by him.
We understand that you thought he had committed offenses
which were bad enough to have him removed from office at least
until it can be decided through the legal system whether or not
he is guilty. We also understand that legal procedure is still in
Just because he was the sheriff of a county is no reason to
treat him and his constitutional rights any differently than the
dope dealer on the corner, nor the murderer of his kin folks, or
the thief who would break into a person's personal property or
possessions and rob him. The United States government is being
more careful of the rights of the slime-ball who blew up the
World Trade Center in New York City than you are of Harrison's
THE MAN HAS a right to his pension. He worked 'for the
State of Florida for many years before he was ever sheriff. He
worked for many years as sheriff without a complaint against his
He earned that pension, fair and square.
Suppose, Governor, that the Legislature took your pension
from you, simply because you entered your position without tell-
ing the people you were under the influence of a drug called 'Pro-
zac'? Wouldn't that be operating under false pretenses?
THE FAMILY OF Al Harrison will need this pension to carry
on their lives. We're sure your family is depending on your pen-
sion to ensure their future, just as the families everywhere are
doing. So really, you are hurting them; not him. What did they do
to you or anyone? Nothing!
We think the majority of our county residents feel very
strongly about this. ,Many of them work for industry and they
are depending on their pension in their later years. As a matter
of fact, they are assured of receiving that pension, no matter
what they might do or simply be accused of doing, after a certain
amount of time has passed. Harrison has more than that
amount of time in service to the state of Florida as a Highway
Florida owes it to the man. We feel you are out of line to try
to take it away from him.
We've Lost A Booster
GULF COUNTY LOST AN avid booster when Harland Prid-
geon died last week. Harland was unique in that he thought
about what his actions in his office would do for or to Gulf
County or to individual people in the county before he made a
decision, a change in office procedure, a purchase, or a rule to
be followed. He always moved in favor of the county and its peo-
ple. He was,a friend to everybody.
Gulf ,County has had a history of having friends in our
county officials' positions. They may have lacked some of the ex-
"pertise such offices.called for, but they, almost every one of
them, had the welfare of the people foremost in every decision
HARLAND MADE IT A practice to treat everyone the same.
He had a reputation which- most people would envy. He never
- met a stranger. If he did, that person didn't remain a stranger
for very long. The object of Harland's new-found friendship knew
You couldn't be an enemy of Harland Pridgeon because that
booming voice and laugh would soon wear you down. Harland
had no time for disliking anyone. You could disagree with him
'and he would still consider you a friend. He allowed everyone
around him to have their own opinion about anything. He sort of
figured that was everyone's privilege; to think as they wished.
AS MUCH AS HARLAND loved the Dead Lakes, he didn't
have hard feelings against anyone who did not share his convic-
tions about what was best for them, just so long as your beliefs
were not tainted with selfishness.
When the dam was removed to improve the integrity of the
waters there, this writer was sympathetic to the reasons for re-
mnoval; Harland was not.
Harland invested' one of his valuable afternoons to give this
writer a tour of the Lakes; a tour which was one of the most en-
joyable afternoons this writer has ever had. The tour was de-
signed to show why he favored leaving the dam in place.
He tried to make his point in a genteel manner and kept a
friendship functioning in the meantime. That was the kind of
man he was.
I'm going to have trouble with
this story today because I keep
getting ESP mixed up with ESPN.
ESP is what my wife has. She
won't watch nothing on ESPN un-
less, of course, they're showing
boxing or a NASCAR race.
ESPN stands for Total Sports'
Network. I ain't figured out ESP',
yet but is has something to-,do
with clairvoyance or telepathy.
Listen riQw, you don't have. to
wrap a towel around your head or
keep a giant crystal ball on ;the
living room table or be named
Rhue, to know about ESP. Real
people have it! You get to think-
ing about something and all of a
sudden out of the clear blue your
cousin from Minneapolis calls to
discuss with you the very thing
you had on your mind ..... It
can be amazing! I think It has to
do with some kind of extrasenso-

They spend forty minutes on

Jesse turned to me, "Daddy,

You reckon it's just a remark-

my mind that these three lovely
sisters could be making some
phone calls and special arrange-,
ments when I'm not around. Naw,
they wouldn't do that . ., be-
sides, it would. take away from
the ESP theory. And it wouldn't
explain Genia's letter. Genia is a
cousin living In England who
wrote last week to say that she
would be in Nashville for a few
weeks in April and could Cathy
come up .....
Genia did mention me down

I spoke with Genia's sister
last week and first thing Lyn said
was, "Is Cathy coming up during
spring break. ...'. "
It's near 'bout overwhelming!
Cathy had to call Jo Blair
back about the weather and what
to bring. Then Jo Blair called the
next night to remind Cathy to get
off the interstate' at Harding
Place. And Cathy then phoned
Gay-Foley to tell her she knew to
bring a warm coat, not to worry.
And, of course. Cathy had to call
,her brother and tell him where he
was supposed to be all week. Gay
called to. make sure ,everybody
knew the plan. Cathy called Jo
Blair and Bobby Brown to say
that Gay called and she was O.AK
with all the arrangements. And
Jo Blair was back on the horn
last night reminding Cathy not to

I KNOW HOW those folks feel
about basketball: or how they felt
about the, sport in. my childhood
They took it seriously! '
Football was a game played
by, other schools, but when I Was
a child,' living among the oil wells
on the edge of the "Tulsa Pool",
basketball was the game for win-
ter and baseball was, by far, the
most popular game the remainder
of the year. If you didn't play bas-
ketball or baseball, you were left
with only mumbly-peg to enter-
tain your competitive spirit.
Long, short, fat.or lean; bas-
ketball was the sport with football
only a legend some .folks talked
about while whittling through the
,board seat of 'the "'loafers bench'
while passing away the time arid
swapping stories outside my Un-
cle Connie's service station.
OF COURSE, I was just a lit-
tle fellow at the time; hardly big
enough to pick up 'a basketball,
much' less play the game. The,
boys in the small town where I.
lived, 'played on, an outdoors
court. until Fraihkliri Roosevelt
put the WPA into full. swing,
Then We got a gymnasium in
Shamrock! Built by WPA labor
from the sandstone rocks which
"were so plentiful in the area, we' ,
'had our first place to play on a- ,:
,regular. court and woe unto any-
one who walked out on that high-
ly-varnished hardwood floor,
wearing leather' shoes, or any oth-
er kind which had tacks holding
, on the soles or heels
: To this.day, I don't feel right
about walking on the gym floor
wearing hard-soled shoes!
SWE HAD A gym! The town
wasn't as large as Hosford. The
state, nor county, even furnished
free textbooks. Every year at the
end of school year, you cornered
someone in the grade above you
'and reserved their old textbooks.
You either had to buy used books
or else you had to buy new ones
,,and that was hard to do back
when you could rent a house for
$5.00 a month.
The highlight of every spring
was the basketball tournaments.
Basketball tournament time was,
a time I could spend down at the
gym all day long, watching the
games, without' having to get
,Momma's permission to be away
;-h Of course, the gym was down
the street in the- next block from
where we lived, so' I wasn't fat
from Mobmma's watchful eye and
she could still hear the occasional
noise from the gym and tell when
the game was over and I needed
to be home.
In our District there was a
school for Indian children who.
were deaf and dumb. They en-
tered the tournament every year
and they would beat any tearri
which walked on the floor.
I never- did figure how they
heard the. referee's whistle when
it was blown, but they managed.
Like I say, basketball was--
and probably still. is-taken seri-
ously in that part of the country.

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. APRIL 6. 1995
There's a lot to be said about living alone.
If you.are a person who has lived within the confines of a family
or a friends) for several years, you probably don't have any idea of
what it's like to live alone.
First of all, there is freedom: You can. come and go as you
please, go to bed and get up when you please, eat when and what
you want to and dress in anything you like. Or you may want to
dress in nothing. It is suggested, if you choose the latter, that you
make sure all the window shades are down, lest you draw: a crowd
and possibly the law to your house. This is particularly true if you
are a good-looking female. .
There are other aspects to living alone, to be sure. You can be
as smart or as lazy as you want to be. If you wake up in the middle
of the night and want to do a load or two of clothes, you are free to
do them without worrying that you might awaken someone In the
house. Or. maybe, you are a "yard freak" and feel the urge to weed
the flower bed at three in the morning. Just turn on the back or
front porch light and have at it. If. the neighbors wake up and see
you working in the flower bed, they. will know you're crazy. but
that's their problem. It is suggested that you not mow the lawn that
early, but a little weeding shouldn't do that much harm. .,
Humans,; by nature, are, not nocturnal., However,' there are
those who become night creatures, either by design od',pressure.
Some people just like the silence and solitude that darkness offers.,
Usually, night-time offers these people quietness and uninterrupted
freedom to do what they wish. Most of the time there are no phone
calls, no visitors and no demanding interruptions.

Some people are victims of sleeping disorders which compels
them to arise and take action of some sort. In other words,
night- time is a good time to worry about things, usually things that
they can do nothing about. It's sheer torture to lay awake in bed
worrying about something and see someone sleeping beside youi
knowing they are getting a good night's sleep while you suffer. It.
makes you want to shake them and say, "Hey! Wake up and help
me worry about how I'm going to solve this problem."
It's a rather difficult situation sometimes when it comes to eat-
ing, if you live alone. There's no problem If you are a "fast food"
freak, like a lot of folks are today. However, if you are one who likes
the taste of home-cooked meals, you may find it very difficult to

"Over the last few months, we
have heard plenty of tough rheto-

Unfortunately many of those
members of Congress doing all of
this talking appear to be only
concerned with limiting the terms

themselves." Peterson said last
week. "Of the four proposals, my

In the House or Senate, Simply
-put, .a vote against the,_PtersoDj-
Dingell Amenrdment by a-ny legfs-

term limits is a vote that smacks
of hypocrisy and arrogance."
In addition to imposing a
twelve-year limit to be applied ret-
roactively, the Peterson-Dingell
Amendment also allows individu-
al states to enact any limit below
twelve years. "If a particular state
wants to impose even stricter lim-
its on Its federally elected offi-
cials, then its right to to so
should be protected under the
Constitution." Peterson stated.
Peterson underscored the im-
portance of his proposed amend-
ment by citing the overwhelming
support across the nation for ret-
roactive term limits. Reliable na-
tion-wide surveys show that the
majority of Americans want to
limit the number of terms served
by their representatives, more im-
portantly, each of these polls also
shows that the American people
want term limits applied to those
presently serving in office.

Florida Farm Fact
In 1714, five live strawberry
plants were taken back to France
from Chile by a French officer.
Plants of the North American
meadow strawberry had already
been taken to Europe. From ge-
retic crosses of these North and
South American varieties, the
modem strawberry was devel-
oped. Florida is the nation's num-
ber :two producer of fresh straw-
berries, accounting for 15 percent
of U.S. cash receipts for, fresh
sales. During the winter months,
Florida is the nation's No. I pro-
ducer of fresh strawberries.

New Oyster Rules Take Effect In Florida Immediately
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) announced this week that
new rules designed to reduce
risks to those who consume oys-
ters became effective April 1.
Last month in Orlando, mem-
bers of the Interstate Shellfish
Sanitation Conference (ISSC), the
National Shellfish Sanitation Pro-
gram and DEP officials met and
voted to implement two emergen-
:cy rules in an effort to counteract
the U. S. Food and Drug Adminis-
tration's recommended seven-
month closure for oyster harvest-
The ruling comes at a critical
time to oyster harvesters-with
water temperatures rising, the
marine bacteria Vibrio Vulnificus
becomes more prevalent. Vibrio
occtirs naturally, rather than as a
result of pollution, and therefore,
may be present in clean waters
that are approved for oyster har-
vesting during warm months
When added to existing rules
requiring oyster shellstock tags
and retail distributors to bear
warnings to high-risk individuals;
of the potential dangers from con-
suming the raw product, the po-.
tential for vibrio should be drasti-
The new rules include:
*A six-hour cut in handling
time to assure the consumer a
fresh product. Oyster harvesters,
as of April 1, must have their
products delivered to the process-
ing: plant by '6 p.m. of the same
day as harvest. Past rules allow'
the harvester to continue to har-
'vest until sunset and deliver by-
midnight the same night. -"
A termination date for un--
shucked oysters.; Under the new
rule, unshucked oysters will also
be required to have a "last sale"
date on It, similar to milk and,
dairy products. In the past, shelf
life rules have applied only to
shucked oysters. As of April 1,
both shucked and unshucked
oysters must be pulled from
shelves. if not sold after 14 days

Reform Proposals Are
Refreshing to Legislature"
Two-Party System Brings End
To Many Entrenched Rules
A breath of fresh air is churning through the Florida ,Legislature,
thanks to the first two-party system in old Taxahassee in more than 120
years. It may just turn Into a real old-fashioned humdinger of a blowout.
Sacred cows are falling all over the place.
State capitol observers credit the reform to lawmakers on' the cam-
paign trail getting the message 'from their constituents back home that
they're tired of politics as usual and really want some reform. Going
down, according to early estimates that could change before the session
PUBLIC CAMPAIGN FINANCING that last year gave statewide candi-
dates $12 million in tax money to run some of the nastiest election cam-
paigns'in modem times. Dearly loved by Gov. Lawton chiles who spon-
sored it and got the most money, the program was shot down in
committee, at least for now, by Sen. Robert Harden, R-Fort Walton
Beach. Harden said it forces Florida taxpayers to support candidates who
need money to run but areIn't of their choosing.
LAST MINUTE ATTACK POLLS that sway voters with negative infor-
mation just before the election with no time left for a rebuttal or even an
opportunity to discount incorrect information given as truth.
PLUM COAThAITEE ASSIGNMENTS given by political party leaders to
-candidates who give surplus campaign money to the party, in effect, buy-
ing the appointment.-A bill sets a limit of $10,000 that can be returned.
SUBSTITUTE CANDIDATES viata bill that has strong support Which
will prohibit a candidate from withdrawing from one race and running in
another where a ringer candidate has qualified to hold a possible seat
open for a bigger-name candidate. Former Secretary' of State Jim Smith
comes,to mind. '
Another reform, which this old reporter doesntdlike much, is 'a bill
that would do,away with the 'second primary or runoffs' in elections be-
cause io candidate got a majority vote. I like the majority will to not be
circumvented the way politicians are'adept' at doing. ''': "
Many of the reform proposals are in a package groomed by recently
elected' Republican Secretary of State Sandra (What a girl) Mortharn.who
is challenging the old way politicians have been doing business in Flori-
A recent example of the need for campaign- law reform has been dis-
closed.,in the Florida panhandle; where newspapers have been reporting
Gov. Lawton Chiles did not include campaign contributions from sup-
porter-hunting buddy Joe Bruner, a Fort Walton Beach businessman,
who put up campaign signs throughout North Florida for Chiles in his
successful race against Jeb Bush. Chiles' pled ignorance to Bruner's in-
volvement.:His campaign spokesman said Bruner acted independently.
But guess what? Bruner has been appointed by Chiles to a spot on
the Florida Tourist Commission.
HYPOCRISY: A hypocritical scheme was being played' out last week
in the legislature as a Senate panel took the first step to repeal a law that
gives Florida a chance to win big in damages from the tobacco industry
by removing any blame from smokers for their illnesses.
Senators voted 11-3 for repeal of the law, claiming smokers deserve'
some of the blame and they were hoodwinked by Gov. Lawton Chiles and
a few key senators who slipped the new law through without debate in
the closing days of the session last year. .
"I'm very disappointed knowing that you personally were a part of
that deception," Sen. Fred Dudley, R-Cape Coral, told Attorney Gen. Bob,
Butterworth. "I'm disappointed that you were not aware of what was hap-
pening on the Senate floor," Butterworth answered.,
Gov. Chiles has used the law to file a $1.4 billion lawsuit against.
Philip Morris ahd other tobacco companies. He has said early on in.the
flak over the srieak law that he wouldn't veto it's repeal if lawmakers just
limited it to tobacco companies. The Associated Industries of Florida lob-.
by contends alcohol and meat industries could expect to be sued too if it
is allowed to stand.
Chiles issued an executive order limiting the law to tobacco compa-
nies, but Senator said such an order could be changed by any other gov-
ernor who goes into office in Florida. Dexter Douglas, his attorney, has
said Chiles will continue with the suit against the tobacco companies,
even if the House and Senate override his veto.
THEY SAID IT: "When they talk about cutting government.rl, guess
I'm talklg to lhe choir and,looking,at-.the Jead singer, over.here-ion -my
left," Presidenti tinton said in his speech to the Florida Legislature. refer-,
ring to Gov. Lawton Chiles. Yeah.
"What do you mean, what are we going to do with it? We're going to
beat Republicans." State Democratic Chairman Terris Brady said when
asked about the $500,000 big shots and lobbyists paid to attend a lunch-
eon with Clinton on his historic first time visit to the Florida Legislature.
"I could give a willy who the owner of the property is," Secretary of
State Sandra Mortham (sometimes known as Snow White), told Florida's
male cabinet members (sometimes known as the six little men) when
they voted to pay Lykes Brothers $12.4 million for set-aside land in Lake
County's Green Swamp. One of them, Insurance Commissioner Bill Nel-
son, said he may bring it up again at the April 13 meeting after he was
told later that Lykes has invested in Coastal Petroleum, a firm that wants
to drill for oil off Florida's Gulf Coast.
"I thought the governor was referring to a veto override session," Sen.
Fred R. Dudley, R-Cape Coral, saidto Education Commissioner Frank
Brogan in a subcommittee meeting during a discussion of Gov. Chiles'
suggestion to call for a special session on education. ,
"If you think we're going to sit here and let you Republicans pull a
truck' up to our programs in the rural areas of this state and.Just haul
them away, you're mistaken," fominer Senate President Pat Thomas, D-
Quincy, in a- Ways and Means subcommittee, meeting. Thomas told this
reporter later he thought he had stopped most of the raids on' rural pro-
grams, especially in his district, but he was waiting around to see if they
were going to be brought up again.
Capital News Round-Up:
On the day President Bill Clinton addressed the Legislature, a Flori-
da Senate committee passed. a no-new-taxes budget that would spend
$200 million more on schools than Gov. Lawton Chiles called for in his
session opening speech.
With prisons as another big winner, the $38.7 billion 'spending plan
goes to the full Senate Thursday where minority Democrats are expected
to challenge whether enough will be spent on welfare reform and disad-
vantaged pre-kindergarten programs for children of the poor.,
The full Florida House also on Thursday will consider It's $38.9 bil-
lion budget passed through committee after Cllnton's speech that appro-
priates about the same amount of money for schools and welfare but dif-'
fers widely on specific programs. House Speaker Peter Wallace, D-St.
Petersburg. for instance, wants money that isn't in the Senate budget to
limit class sizes in the first few grades of school to 20 students. The sen-
ate gives more money to higher education than the House.
Both bills will go to a joint legislative committee for compromises be-
fore final, adoption expected in the closing days of the regular session
scheduled to end May 5. The budget is the only bill'the Legislature is re-.

quired by the constitution to pass before adjourning.
None of the proposed malor legislation had passed halfway through
the session late last week. So far the House has dragged its feet on legis-
lation, prompting charges-denied by Speaker Wallace-that he is hold-
ing up Senate bills to gain leverage In the bargaining expected in the
closing days of the session.
The Senate has passed a strong bill eliminating many state rules and
regulations and making It harder to enact new ones, but the House so fari
has not passed its version. The Senate has also passed a criminal justice
reform package requiring prisoners to serve 85 percent of their sentences
and lengthening some sentences. The House has not passed on it or of-_
fered one of its own.
Other big issues expected In the closing days include bills to protect
private property owners from government rules without damaging the en-
vironment and a telecommunications package to assure competition for
local telephone services and thus bring prices down for the consumer.
Gov..Chiles' health insurance package that would subsidize pay-
ments for the working poor appears dead in both houses. Clinton-whose
own health reform program fizzled in Congress-didn't even mention It in
his speech, although he plugged thlles' welfare reform projects in
Gainesville and Pensacola mightily. Expansion of the program is not in
the Senate budget bill. .
The biggest environmental issue this session appIear to be whether
to dismantle Rodman Dam, thus draining Lake Oklawaha in Putnam and
Marion counties and restoring that section of the Oklawaha River. Senti-
ment in the House appears to be to dismantle the locks, but keep the
dam and lake for its recreational value. A bill by Rep. Kelley Smith, D-
Palatka, would do that and levyfees on sports fishermen to pay for its
maintenance. The dam and lake were a part of the once proposed but lat-
er abandoned Florida State Barge Canal.;
AUTO FEE RETURN: Motorists who paid a $295 impact fee for
bringing'an out-of-state motor vehicle into Florida between July 1. 1990
and June 30, 1991, would be refunded in a bill that passed the House Fi-
nance and Taxation subcommittee. There is strong sentiment in both the
House and Senate to pass the legislation. The Florida Supreme Court has
ruled the law requiring the Impact fee is unconstitutional in a lawsuit
filed for motorists who paid the fee.after June 30, 1991,,
NOT COLLEGE READY: A Readiness for College report presented to
the Florida Cabinet shows only 57.8 percent of high school graduates en-
tering college could pass all three sections of college entrance exams that
test reading, writing and math skills. The poorest performance was in ru-
ral North Florida and Dade counties. Only 36.3 percent of black students
who took the test passed all threesections; 42 percent. of the Hispanics
passed; 62.6 percent of the Asiars; and 67.9 percent of the white stu-
dents 1paissed. Studeiits going to state universities didfar better than stu-'
dents going to cbmminity colleges (92.2 percent passing all three tests to
41.1 percent). There were also wide disparities in performances between
counties in the report given by the Department of Education.
NEW OYSTER RULES: New state rules on harvesting oysters require
quicker processing and sale to make oysters safer to eat. Florida and oth-
er Gulf Coast states agreed to the rules to head off a proposed federal clo-

Is to introduce students to the
truth of God's Word and to God's,
love for them as shown in Christ's

Second, we want to provide a,

- CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D. j
" Many parents worry or are annoyed by various habit patterns
children exhibit Habits In children that cause parents to ask for
medical advice include: thumb sucking, biting fingernails,
bedwetting, tics, masturbation and head banging.
SThumb or finger sucking does distort the teeth and cause
dental occlusion if prolonged and excessive, but the sucking.is an
expression of a need for oral activity the child expresses in this way.
I tell parents the orthodontist is cheaper than the psychiatrist,
meaning it is better not to create more problems by strenuous
efforts to stop the sucking.
Nail biters feel a compulsive need to chew at every little sprig of
nail or cuticle that appears. Parents can help children who bite
nails by daily attention to the child's nails. Cream or lotion (applied
ahd rubbed in well) keep the skin in better condition and make it
less likely to annoy the child with rough areas or pieces of tissue.
Parents should keep all loose pieces or skin trimmed carefully. Little
girls can often be coaxed not to bite their nails by applying nail
Bedwetting is usually a developmental problem that can be
worked out once the child is old enough to cooperate in a program
to stretch his bladder and make it larger.
Tics are involuntarymovements of head, eyelids, face, arms or
other body parts. Some children clear their throats. Some children
cough. Some children stutter. These are all problems that improve if
undue attention is riot applied to the child.
Just as a newborn explores the world through sucking, it is
.normal for children as they grow older to explore other parts of their
bodies. They find it pleasurable to touch penis and vaginal areas.
Repetitive touching is masturbation. Masturbation is a. part of
normal development. Children should learn such activity is a
private activity and is not accepted in public.
Head banging is rarely of such severity as to need attention.
Rarely a chfld will bang his head with such force that a football
helmet or foam padding is reconjmended for protection;.
AddiUon'lly, some children grind their teeth when they sleep.
This does not mean they have worms. It does mean they may grind
down their teeth if the grinding is excessive. The dentist may need
to make a bite plate for the child to wear.while sleeping to prevent
damage to the teeth...

Now that the Spring, 1995
mail-order seed company catalogs
are arriving at street addresses
all over Florida on a daily basis,
gardeners are faced, with the
problem (actually it is fun) of
making selections: for the scarcest
commodities in their garden-
space. Since the favorite item is
still the tomato,, some special
help for choosing what kinds of
tomatoes get the space this year
Most gardeners buy' trans-
plants at garden supply centers
so are somewhat "locked" by what
varieties are ayallable at planting
time. However, probably 15-25%
start from seeds purchased
through catalogs or seed .racks.
Now is the time for these latter
gardeners to buy seeds, either to
sow right away in seed-beds/
seedling containers, or to have on
hand at the proper sowing time.
Because Florida is such an
important state in the commercial
production of tomatoes (crop val-
ued at over $700 million in 1991-
92 season), there have been many
outstanding varieties developed
and released by the University of
Florida over the years. Seeds of
many of these "native" old favor-'
ites are still available, along with
the newer releases. Here are
some that are still offered for sale
to gardeners. Since these are cus-
tot ;,, 'designed"'- vfor. Florida's
unique climate and growing con-
ditions, gardeners might be wise
to' include some of these along
with some other favorites such as
"Better Boy'", which like most-
Florida gardeners, has become a
"native" by acclimation.

Moments after sitting. down
for interview with the Gulf De-
fender, two members of Detach-
ment 1, 148th Fighter Group
were high over the Gulf of Mexico,
responding to a speck on the ra-
dar and an urgent call from high-
er headquarters'. The blare of the
horn had sent airmen scrambling
in all directions, all for a common
goal-defending America's skies. .
SSgt. Rick Burnham-325th
Fighter Wing Public Affairs
In terms of numbers, Detach-
ment 1 of the Minnesota Air Na-
tional Guard's 148th Fighter
Group isn't exactly Tyndall Air
Force Base's most prominent,
unit. Only a handful of men and
women work on the small com-
pound near the east end of Tyn-
dall's runway, and the fleet of
three F-16 Falcons pales in com-
parison to the hoards of F-15 Ea-
gles across the tarmac.
But when you consider its
mission, it's easy to see why the
small detachment Is among the.
more important at Tyndall.
"It's our job to perform air,
alert duties over the eastern half
of the Gulf of Mexico--to defend
our borders." said Lieutenant
Colonel Ken Hagee, detachment
commander. '"Whenever an un-
known aircraft enters our air-
space, we respond."
And respond quickly. Falcon
pilots are typically in the air less
than five minutes after receiving
,the call from controllers at the
Southeast Air Defense Sector Op-
erations Control Center. And fol-
lowing each mission, Falcon crew
chiefs have. one hour to get each
jet ready to launch again. Senior
Master Sergeant John Matheson,
Jr., chief enlisted manager for the
detachment, said the nature of,
his unit's job makes teamwork a
'When the horn blows, every-
one merges to get the job done,"
said Matheson, whose job in-
cludes first sergeant for the 20 or
so members of Detachment 1,
"We train our people to be able to
drop what they're doing at a mo-
ment's notice and help to get
those jets in the air."
Matheson, who has direct In-
put into which enlisted members
come to Tyndall, said he looks for .'
certain characteristics in a Guard'
"We want people with good
attitudes and who are eager to
learn," he said. "The job requires
that our people be versatile, not
For example, the. sergeant
said, a F-16 crew chief'with De-
tachment I may find himself or
herself taking on vehicle control
officer duties or facility manager
responsibilities when not launch-
"We don't have the luxury of
just having to launch aircraft," he
said. "Additional duties are prob-
ably the biggest challenge our en-
listed people 'face."'
Of the 16 enlisted people as-
signed to the unit, 14 work di-
rectly with the jets, while once
handles supply responsibilities
and the other works administra-
Hagee and his operations offi-
cer round out the unit's perma-
nent duty force at Tyndall. And
like their enlisted counterparts,
they often find themselves going
above and beyond normal every-
'We have two pilots here, but
if one or both should get sick,
myself and Captain Jackson (ops
officer Brad Jackson) become the
pilots," Hagee said. 'We have to
be ready to climb Into the cockpit
at any time."
Most of the time, Hagee said,
it's the two' pilots who find them-
selves out over the Gulf. Two new
officers, along with the two new
planes, filter into Tyndall ever
four days or so from Duluth,
Minn., where the 148th is head-
Captain Scott Anderson, one
of two pilots who took to the skies
when the horn went off Tuesday
afternoon, said the experience is
something that takes a little get-
ting used to.
'The first time you're on alert,
you usually find yourself sitting
around in your g-suit and har-
ness, waiting for the horn to go
off," he said. "By the second or
third trip to Tyndall, you get more
relaxed. It's all a matter of getting
the confidence that you will have
time to get into the suit and get
out to the plane;'"
Captain Charley Nelson, who
has been coming to Tyndall,
"about 18 times a year since
1991," said the key is being calm.
"We have a saying-'Go slow-
er and get there faster,'" he said..
'You learn to take your time, to
use a methodical approach. In-
'stead of fumbling through the
switches, you take your time and
hit the right ones the first time."
Each pilot Is still waiting for
the first time they cone across a
hostile force over the Gulf,
though 'both said they have 'had
some interesting encounters.
"I came across a weather bal-
loon," said Anderson. "If you've
never seen one, it's a big, shiny
silver ball with spikes."
Most of the time, the scram-
bles Involve the intercept of drug
smugglers flying from South
America and the Caribbean, a
peacetime role of the detachment.
