odot"Pressed Into War Against Drugs


Gulf County has, received
some surprise help in its war on
drugs. She answers to the name
.of Zodot and has a real nose for
sniffing out the illegal substanc-
es.
Zodot, a seven-year-old Ger-
man shepherd, was a gift to the


Gulf County Sheriffs Department
from the Crestview Police Depart-
ment, who found itself with a sur-
plus drug dog after a personnel
change within their departmentL
Deputy Greg Cole went to
Crestview last Wednesday to pick
up Zodot and start the process of


St. Joe Paper Company's Board of Directors
decided last Thursday to offer for sale a large
chunk of the Company's manufacturing and
service interests.
The Board sided with its largest share hold-
en, the duPont Trust, In the decision to sell off
part of its assets. The Board agreed to seek of-
fers for Its papermill here In Port St. Joe, 16
box plants, 5,200 acres of sugar' cane produc-
ing land in central Florida, and three telephone
companies In Port St. Joe, Florala, Alabama,
and Perry. The Directors said that any or all
sales would be subject to board approval.
ESTIMATED $900 MILLION VALUE
Financial analysts estimated all of these
holdings were valued at $900 million. The esti-
mate was made over a month ago when a study
of the value of the sale to the -major share hold-
er was begun by outside personnel. Use of the
proceeds from the sale still has not been 're-
vealed and is still under review according to the
directors.
James Schmitt of West-Country Financial,
Somis, California, minority shareholder stated,
'They have an environment that's working very
favorably for them at this time so this will all
happen this year," referring to the sale.

HOLDINGS BENEFIT TRUST
DuPont established a, trust of his estate to
benefit disabled children and elderly people
through the profits earned. Several sharehold-
ers were angered in recent years because so
much of the profits had to be plowed back into
the business rather than declaring dividends.
Should the manufacturing and service in-
terest be sold, St. Joe would largely become a
real estate holding company with over a million
acres in north and central Florida and would
maintain control of Florida East-Coast Railroad
which runs from Jacksonville to Miami. Includ-
ed in the proposed sale would be the mill at
Port St. Joe and its container operations which
is the largest single employer in Gulf County,
providing jobs for nearly 950 people.
St. Joe officials said they did not anticipate
any job cut-backs or closure of its papermill or
box manufacturing concerns as a result of the
pending sale.
St. Joe had $18.8 million in profits on $686
million in revenue last year. Its telephone com-
panies serve approximately 38,000 customers.

handler had no idea where the
stash was hidden, but the dog
found the drugs in only a few sec-

side of a desk drawer, while the
other was in a cardboard box
stuffed under several items.
Zodot's talents can be utilized
while working road blocks, en-
forcing search warrants, and even
in the schools throughout the
county Cole said.


Deputy Greg Cole is shown with the newest addition to
Gulf County's law enforcement team. She is a German shep-
herd, and answers to the name of Zodot. Those dealing and
using illegal drugs need beware there's a new deputy on the
force. She's not very tall, might shed a little hair, has long
ears, but ohhhhhhh, what a nose.

Good Deal

THE GULF COUNTY Commission under-scored their rea-
sons for doing our paving work in the manner which they were,
two weeks ago, by once again calling for bids and awarding our
business to C. W. Roberts Construction Company to the chagrin
of the Panama City News-Herald.
In reporting the story, the News-Herald points out that the
first time bids were received on the Job, they were all too high.
You.see, we have a resident engineer who lives over here in Gulf
'County who pays taxes also, so he is looking out for his interests
while he is also looking out for our interests. We have had engi-
neers from other counties, with fancy certificates and degrees
working for us before. Some of the designed projects crumbled
up and disintegrated in just a short while, some didn't work
from the very beginning and some have caused us nothing but
trouble.
Not so with our paving. Even other road pavers have testified
to the fact that we received more than we asked, or paid for.
So what if our engineer doesn't have a fancy certificate? At
least he asks for advice from a person who does have, and -a per-
son he, and we, can trust to have our best interests at heart and
not just his own.
WE ARE GETTING nearly all the paving we wanted, at a
price we can afford to pay and don't have to worry about being
cheated in the deal, because the paver is a friend. A friend is a
valuable asset to have, whether you are buying paving or trust-
ing him with your bird dog.
George nor Chuck Roberts have become rich from their pav-
ing business, but we look for them to be rich one day, because
they treat their customers right!
Having been in the position of our officials in past years, we
can tell you it is a relief to have someone working for you who
does what they say they will do and don't have to be watched for
wrong-doing all the time. You can't understand how valuable a
situation that is.
ROBERTS SAVED OUR COUNTY nearly $70,000 with his
price. Never mind that the bidders on the first land second] call
for bids entered bids which called for price tags which were for
more money than Gulf County had available for the job. With
Roberts' bid, Gulf county can afford to have nearly two more
miles resurfaced than they could with the other bids.
That difference, friend, is significant!
We'll take a deal like that, any old day we can get it!


Fitting Tribute

DEDICATION OF FRANK PATE Park Is a fitting tribute to
pay to a man who has given of himself and his taents for the
past 25 years or so. There has been precious little money paid
for his services and some have said, "But just look at the satis-
faction he has received!" Well, we don't remember anybody else
asking for all that "satisfaction" or peace of mind in knowing he
has served his neighbors and friends well.
'.At. been buotr privilege'to serve with Frank Pate' for several
*, years.'and we-c r-tellPyou it ish't all "satisfaction" whe- you
serv' the public or your community, in an attempt to put back
part of what the community has given you. On more than one
occasion we had a few old grouches give us and Frank, a hard
time, for something we were getting precious little pay or, even
recognition, for.
WE KNOW FOR A FACT the Wastewater Treatment Plant,
for instance, has been a constant source of irritation to all the
City Comissioners. When a.person spends 20 years 'enjoying'
the overseeing of that City property, that alone is reason to
name a park for an individual.
The Environmental Protection Agency and their constantly
changing the rules, is enough to drive a person bonkers. The av-
erage person has no earthly idea of the constant pressure they
can apply. It isn't very pretty.
NAMING A PARK FOR A person in honor of such lengthy
-: and dedicated service is a gesture we think is fitting for the occa-
sion. For 54 years that we know of, the City had used that prop-
-erty for a park, but had never had the ownership of the land. It's
use could be denied at an time. Through Frank Pate's leader-
ship, the City now not only has a fine developed park on the lo-
cation, but the City also owns the property. We know for a fact
that the former owner didn't exactly force ownership on the City.
It took considerable dickering to acquire.
The thing about this dedication we find so appealing is that
it was named in Pate's honor before he died! That's a smooth
and deserved move

Weddings Are All Alike, UnlessThey Involve Your Kids


WE HAD A WEDDING in the'
Ramsey clan last week-end which
tested the mettle of us all.
.The wedding wasn't unusual,
as weddings go, I suppose. There
were the usual boy and girl,
Pledging their troth, the preacher
presiding, the church full of peo-
pie and the ring-bearer looking
for all the world as If he had rath-
er, be in the beautiful outdoors
Saturday, playing baseball, rath-
er than waste that precious time
stuck in an "old wedding"
Everything was as you have
probably seen at a hundred wed-
dings; even complete with the
usual, "Wasn't that a beautiful
wedding?" "Wasn't the bride
beautiful?" "Didn't the groom look
dumb. Just standing there with
Shis bare face hanging outL with
that silly grin all over It?"' -
It was just like most other
weddings, I suppose, with one'ex-
ception; it was my grandson's
weddingg? Why, he isn't old
enough: to be getting married!


Only 211 What could his parents
have been thinking of, anyhow,
allowing, a child of such a tender
age to get married?

THIS WASN'T THE first of
my grandsons to take that fateful
plunge. It was the fourth! They
were all too young Of course,
they were all older than I was
when I married, but that's beside
the point; they were just children
It was a different perspective
of the usual wedding, too.
You see, all but one of my
grandchildren, are grandsons.
That usually means that their
grandmother and I usually spring


for a wedding gift and attend the
ceremony, and that's about all.:
But this one was different
from all the rest. The other three
grandsons had uneventful wed-
dings and at the end of the day,
we just returned home after noth-
ing more than just witnessing the
ceremony and eating the refresh-
ments at a reception, which
someone else had the responsibil-
ity to get ready for, buy the food,
see that there was enough, clean
up after the big soiree and all
that good stuff.

THIM TIME WAS different!


Usually, all we had ever fur-
nished was the bridegroom.
This time, the family was 'in
on some of the planning and get-
ting things in shape and ready for
the ceremony. ,
You see, Bill chose a girl from
California to wed and her parents
had to do most of the planning
from: :across 'the i nation, which
meant the family which lived here
had the responsibility of carrying
out a good portion of those plans!
I never knew there was so
much to getting. married! Since
Bill was the number one son of
Willie and Shirley, both of whom
are associated with us here at
The Star. that wedding was an ad-
venture here at the office for at
least three weeks.
Work almost came to a
stand-still for those' three weeks,
while we made. wedding plans.
Even Bill, the groom-to-be, was
frustrated by all the plans and
walked up to hi-, mother, who


happens to be our main comput-
er technician here at The Star.'
who was involved with the bride-
to-be over the color of some rib-
bon.
Bill, who has been our dark-
room technician for about a.year,
now, said, "Momma, if you don't
shut up talking 'wedding' and get
to work,- we're not going to get
this issue of the paper out in time
.for the ceremony!"

THERE WAS ENOUGH
Cooked to have enough left-overs
to feed these hungry critters here
at the office for at least a month.
Every time someone would
come in to do a little business, he
'never left without an invitation to
the wedding, the rehearsal din-
ner, or both.
Poor little brother, Eric, al-
most ran his legs off for at least
two weeks, running errands,
picking up things or food or
something for the nuptials.


We'd miss Willie or Shirley
here at the office and it was al-
most invariably, "He/she had to
go see somebody about the wed-
ding."
To say that wedding took pri-
ority over everything for over two
weeks is an understatement!
Big brother Ray, barbecued
ribs, turkeys and pork roasts for
two days to feed the rehearsal
guests and those who just came
to eat; while others fixed craw-
fish, 'pickled shrimp, fried tur-
keys, made cakes, sausage balls,
'chicken wings, etc., getting ready
for the "big doins."
You would have thought
preparations were afoot for the
king and his affianced queen to
get married instead of just Bill
and a very sweet and lovely girl
named Melissa who made the
prettiest bride you ever saw.
But after it was all over, little
brother Eric said he'd Just take a
ladder and elope! Thank you!

most any day we couldn't come
up with enough cold hard cash to

over at the Dixie Coffee Cup Cafe.
My Dad peered at me, not
really understanding, "Son, forty-

cents" He said it like there might
not be that much money in the
whole world.
The sinking feeling that start-
ed way down in my stomach was
all the way out to my pancreas.
"Uh h u .. I'm about to be a
senior. It's my last year. Dad!
Please" I wasn't going down with-
out a fight. "All the other guys are
getting one. Bobby and Ricky and
Larr-"
"Forty-five, seventy-five," he
repeated, "don't they have any-

"They're all the same, Dad.
Except you can get a red stone or

"Son, do you realize forty-five
dollars and seventy-five cents is
near 'bout a month's worth of
groceries?"
The sinking feeling was wind-
ing itself around my esophagus.
"I .' uh I. uh ." I was
wanting to tell him what- he could
do with a month's worth of gro-
ceries. I thought about Jumping
up in front of him and yelling,
"It's just forty-five lousy dollars!"
'Course, I didn't say nothing. I
was a mad, frustrated, upset,
hurt, semi-rebellious teenager--
but I wasn't brain dead.
Plus; I knew money was
short. Dad was almost, maybe
just a little, right.
I changed gears. "Dad, I'll get
a job and pay you back. It's just
forty-five dollars." "
"And seventy-five cents."
Picky, Picky, Picky.
"Son, things seem important
to'you now that turn out a few
years down the road to be a lot

I hate these discussions I
had no idea-what he was talking
about, But I, wanted 'a ring so I
played along "Different in
what way, Dad?" -
"Oh, you know, you'll give the

it. It will get broken or stolen."
Never!

can get the red one or the blue

I got the ring. Dad worked
several weekends hauling shelled

I wore it all of two weeks be-

Defends Hospital
Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter due to
the recent news and TV coverage
concerning Gulf Pines Hospital fi-
nancial status. Yes, it is true that
payroll was held a few days due
to funding problems. There is al-
ways, however, two sides to every
story, and at times the news me-
dia does not request the views

I have been in the position of
Director of Nursing for Gulf Pines
Hospital since 1992. My experi-
ence.has been 30 years of Critical
arid -Emergency nursing. I came
from Pinellas County, Florida.
SWhy? because like most visitors
that- come to this area I fell in love
with the6 community and people
of Port St. Joe. I also wanted to
be part of the TEAM of profes-
sionals that work at the small ru-
ral hospital. Most of my experi-
ence has been working for large
hospitals with 500 to 750 patient
bed capacity.
Working at a small 45'bed ru-
,ral hospital has been a challenge
but also greatly rewarding. Yes,
:there are times, that financial re-
Swards are not always present. At
Gulf Pines Hospital the adminis-
tration and employees have a
DREAM and a, iSION that work-
ing together we will meet our
goal.

Pate said he didn't expect to
have the park named after him,
but when his fellow commission-

unanimously in favor, he was
very appreciaUve of the honor. "I

Pate expressed his apprecia-

spearhead the park development.
The committee consisted of
James B. Roberts, Emily Roche,

Golden Oldies, All


A caravan of antique automobiles, dating
from the early days of the American love affair
with travel by highway, passed through and
paused in Port St. Joe Saturday morning.
Parking for a nostalgic visit with local citi-
zens who remembered when they travelled in
an old car similar to the ones preserved in
show-room condition, and those who simply
admired the old "horseless carriages" for their
workmanship and Ingenuity.
The caravan was on its way to Apalachicola
and a night spent at the old Gibson Inn, which
was of a more recent vintage than some of the
old vehicles.
All of the machines were restored with


pains-taking originality, except for electrical
systems on some of the vehicles and even some
of the drivers were outfitted in the costumes of
the era of their vintage automobile.
All of the ancient vehicles arrived in Port St.
Joe, from Panama City, under their own power
and each possessed an engine which would
purr like a kitten.
The restored vehicles were judged, accord-
ing to appearance here in Port St. Joe, with the
stately old Packard limousine, shown at right,
judged as the one the judges would like to take
home with them. The old Packard, a 1932 mod- .
el, was owned by Rube Waddell of Panama
City.

Empty Calories


Minus Value


If you think of your mouth
as a haven for strong, healthy
teeth, you'll want to keep
tooth-damaging foods out-
sweets, gummy foods; foods
with little nutritional value.
They're called "empty calorie"
foods.
The bacteria that work
hard to destroy teeth, gums,
and bone, love empty calories
and gummy foods. They turn
sugary foods to an acid-like
substance. They love gummy
foods because they're harder
to remove. when you clean
your teeth. And they have,
passion for "empty calorie"
carbohydrates such as unen-
riched bread, cereals, and
other foods that lack the vita-


mins, iron, and other minerals
your body needs, for good
health.
Keep the empty calories at
bay by limiting the amount of
sweets, sticky foods, and low-
value carbohydrates you eat.
Eat enough fresh fruit and
vegetables to give your chew-
ing muscles a good workout.
Get enough high protein in
meat and vitamin-rich foods to
maintain good health.
And, protect your dental
health with regular check-ups.

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office .of

ship skills, grades, financial need,
career goalsand a commitment to
study agriculture.
"At a time when many Floridl-
ans are faced with the approach-
ing federal income, tax deadline,
our Department is hoping to help
ease the financial burden of sev-
eial Florida families," Crawford
said.
The deadline for; applying is
May 31, 1995. Application pack-
ages must be postmarked by that
date and include the following:

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE FLe*TMURSDAY. APRIL 13, 1995


State Officials Jockey

for Power Positions

Sec. of State Sandra Mortham Trying
to Shortstop Abolishing the DOC

The Column:
Snow White is causing more trouble for Grumpy, one of the six little,
men serving with her on the Florida Cabinet which sometimes resembles'
Walt Disriey's classic tale.
Snow White, of course, is Republican Secretary of State sandra
Mbrtham, who is helping to stall legislation sponsored by Gov. Lawton'
Qhiles (Grumpy) to privatize the state Department of Commerce.
p Chiles would move export assistance and international offices to the
Florida International Affairs Commission (FIAC) as the Department of
C mmerce is dismantled in an economy move. He also wants lawmakers'
t6 pour $17 million tntp, Enterprise Florida and let it take over economic:
development programs. '
The bill is already bogged down in both Houses with stiff opposition
froi Tallahassee area politicians who don't want to lose people, salaries,
and all that good agency stuff to Orlando, where Enterprise Florida is
headquartered.
Now along comes Snow While, former Republican leader of the
House, who has many friends in the Republican dominated Senate. She6
says Republicans support a natural move of international trade promo-
tion to her office.;
"Somebody from China wouldn't know what FIAC Is, but could easi-
ly communicate with the, Florida Secretary of State," said Snow White (I
nlean NMortham).
"I can't get my head around that," said Chiles who is fighting not to
become a lame duck in his last term as governor.
,Ordinarily, this older reporter would side with what-a-girl Snow
White, but this one is ti-icky. Chiles does have a point about turning De-
partment of Commerce (about 300 employees) over to the public-private
Enterprise Florida formed in 1992 to create jobs. It has 'a good track'
record. .
Senate Republican President Jim Scott has balked at the $17 mil-
lion request from Chiles. "I favor privatizing only if it cuts state spending.
not increases It," Scott.said. .. .
Huminmn. It wouldn't be nice if oie of Chiles' good ideas is dumped
because Tallahassee area politicians don't want to lose jobs to Orlando
and a Republican Secretary of State wants more authority.
Folks Speak Up: Old Taxahassee saw a little grass-roots rebellion
last week in a local bill for the Madison County Sheriffs Department
which would, have given employees with five years or more experience
full-time status and job protection, meaning they couldn't be fired except
for cause before-a board.
The local bill differs with a Sheriffs Association Bill that 'extends
the job protection down to deputies; It covers secretaries and correction
officers as well.
: Madison weekly newspaper publisher Tommy Greene said the dang
thifg was:just too expensive: to taxpayers, would Ue the hands of a new
or the old sheriff in economizing and-set aside sheriff employees as a
privileged group. .. .
Phone- calls.,to Sen. :Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee. and, Rep.
Randy Mackey, D-Lake City, caused them to hold the bill up for more"
consideration. We'll let you know how it comes out. ,
..-' : .
CAPITOLL NEWS ROUNDUP:
An expected confrontation over a bipartisan amendment to take
$308 million out of programs for the poor and put It into education did
not happen last week as the House and Senate approved $39 billion bud-
gets that spend heavily on schools and education.
Instead, House sponsors of the $308 million figure agreed to back a
compromise that would provide only $25 million in additional money for
schools. '
.With no tax raises in either budget, conference committees .will
work out the differences in the two proposals after both houses vote on
them next week. following, the required 72-hour. cooling off period. ',
Gov. Law\torl .Chiles'.J)s already said henmighL-vqto a budget that .
dies not include money for .pre-kindergarten into a block grant to school
districts for several programs, a move Chiles has said is unacceptable.
The House provided $104 million from the lottery for the funds.
Chiles has also suggested he may call a special session this sum-
mer to consider educational funding only.
Comparison of the budget proposals shows the Senate would spend'
$2.53 billion on criminal Justice, including space for 3.728 new prison-
ers, the House $2.5 billion with space to accommodate 3.700 new prison-
ers.
On education, the. Senate earmarks $10.95 billion, the House, $11
billion. ,
Social services gets $14.68 billion from the Senate, $14.72 billion
'fromnthe House .....
Environment, Community .and Economic Development gets $5.42
billion from. the Senate and $5.5 billion from the House.
The big differences in spending last year and what is proposed this
year are in social services which were cut $400 million in the House bud-
get'and'c$700 mill6n..In the Senate's version.
Bell Weather Bill: State Sen. Ginny Brown-Walte, R-Spring Hill;
was the swing vote on the bell-weather issue of whether to repeal the
tWo-cerit- dvance.disposal fee on containers known as the bottle tax in
th'e Senate Natural Resources Commnittee last week.
She vrted for it in the key voice vote changing the earlier recom-
mendation of the committee to extend the tax another year to study it.
Observers say the issue is a signal as to just how well Republicans
and conservative Democrats are going to stay the course in really cutting
taxes and government waste in the Florida Legislature this year.
Conservative Democirat Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee, also con
sidered a swing vote on the issue, came down on the side of extending
the tax. I'd like to see us keep it around one more year to accomplish
some of the things it is designed to do." said Williams.
Businessmen, a college student. and an economist attacked it in
committee hearings as a secret and confusing tax on unknowing consu-
mers, including the poor and elderly. ': ',.,
SReports revealed that only about 12 percent of the $21 million the
tax raised last year went to recycling and that people are voluntarily recy-
cling more arid more now. : '
; Vice Chairman Rick, Dantzler. D-Winter Haven, proposed an
amendment that was turned down which would have recommended ex-
tending the tax for two years. He and Williams changed their voice votes
on the bill to make the recommendation to the Ways and Means Commit-
teq unanimous. ,, ;
"It's going to be well debated," Dantzler told committee members.
S"It's rgbt't'" get by the Houise," commented Environmental Protection

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper

Secretary Virginia Wetherell.
CHARTER SCHOOLS:
A bill cleared the Florida Senate that will allow innovative schools
free from bureaucratic control to get public money under charter con-
tracts with school boards. It appears likely the House will go along to
make the state the 12th in the nation to try experiments to upgrade a
failing public education system.
The endorsement of Charter Schools came, 33-7, after three hours,
of debate in which sponsors claimed it was a step into the future and op-
ponients said it treated school children as guinea pigs.
SCharter schools are already being eyed in Hernando and Polk
counties. Miami's Urban League and a private foundation founded by los.
ing gubernatorial candidate Jeb Bush are also planning at least one in'
Miami's Liberty City minority district. .
Bush contended in his campIaign that charter schools or a system ,
of tax vouchers to follow students to non-public schools could be a key to
Improving educational opportunities in .the poorer schqgqldistricts. Gov..
Lawton Chiles opposed the idea.
The bill was watered down considerably when an amendment allow-
ing charter schools be authorized by community. colleges as well as
school districts was defeated. *
Senators-all Democrats- v6ting against the charter school idea
were: Pat Thomas, Quincy; William H,, Turner. Miami; Betty S. Holzen-
dorg, Jacksonville; Howard C. Forman,w Pembroke Pines: Ronald A. Silver.
North Miami Beach: Matthew Meadows. Fort Lauderdale; and Karen
Johnson, Inverness. '
FAMILY CAP: A House panel voted against cuttingoff benefits for
additional children born to women on' welfare, but the issue can come up
again in another committee or on the floor when a companion bill in the
Senate which is expected to pass Is sent over.
The bills HB 2093 and SB 188 are sponsored by Rep. Carl Lit-
defleld. R-Dade City, and Sen. Giony Brown-Walte, R-Spring Hill. The
Senate bill Is now in the Ways and lMeans Committee. '

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


A Obesity



Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.


The problem of childhood obesity becomes the problem of the
adult and can remain a problem for an individual's entire life. Many,
medical problems develop because of the obesity that would never
occur if the person would have maintained a normal weight.
Medicine does not have all the answers, but these are some
basic' principles that are established. A weight reduction of i or. 2
pounds a week Ia excellent and a goal to be accomplished. The
problem arises in most people not being able to adhere to any
program for the length of time necessary to achieve their goal.
Motivation and perseverance are the key. In order for a child to,
accomplish much weight reduction It has to become a family
project. The cook has to plan low fat, low caloric meals that are
attractive and satisfying. Meals should be ,,regular and not
haphazard.
Most children, if not regulated, will eat too rapidly. When eating
rapidly, they do ,not obtain the satiety value necessary to' stop
eating. Slowing everyone is very beneficial.
Eating between meals should be discontinued.
Exercise should be Increased. The increased activity will
produce some degree of satiety, and will use more calories.
if you are trying to motivate a child to embark on a weight
reduction program, the child has tobeleve can believe te done and be
willing to cooperate. He has to believe you have his best interest in"
mind and not look upon the program as punishment. Rewards for
successes should be built into your program.
Suggestions:
Motivate your child and get his cooperation.
Plan regular, low-fat, low-caloric meals.
Eat together and try to encourage table conversaUon.
Slow down actual eating time--more chewing.
Drink water before and between meals.,
Increase exercise-. : '
Incorporate rewards for success into the program.

Selecting Grass" "


for SanO

Centipede Grass Produces Medium'
Lawn, Has Good Shade Tolerance


Selecting a' lawn,:grass for.
Florida's sandy soils can be a ma-,
jor task. Focusing on the advan-
tages and disadvantages of the
varieties most commonly grown
in Florida should be given top pri-
ority by homeowners.
Centipede grass produces a
medium lawn with good shade
Tolerance and very few mainte-
nance problems. The' biggest
drawback with centipede grass is
its -poor salt tolerance. So. we
don't recommend It for beach
areas. My information on starting
and caring for a centipede lawn
was provided by Extension Urban
Horticulture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black, located at the University of
Florida.


Several types of centipede
grasses are grown in, the United
States. But here in Florida, we
use only the common variety. You
can start a centipede lawn with
sod, sprigs, or seeding is the most
common method. .
It's best to plant centipede
seed between April and Septem-
ber. PlanUng just before the rainy
season is Ideal because yb'utiWsh t
keep the soil continuously moist
until the seedlings are well estab-
lished.
Ifyou've never bought centi-
pede seed before, 'you're in for a
mild shock when you get to your
garden center. At first glance, the
seed .price, seems outrageous.
But, seeding is still cheaper than
sodding' or sprigging; that's, be-
cause a little seed goes a long
way. In fact, four ounces of centi-
pede seed is enough for a one-
thousand square foot area. That's
good news in terms. of seed cost.
But, It can be bad news when it
comes to spreading seed over the
lawnsite. You'd have a hard time
spreading such a small' amount
of seed evenly over such a large
area. So. mix the seed with some
kind of carrier, such as sand, to
make It easier to distribute.
Once you get the seed in the
ground, one of the most impor-
tant factors in establishing your
centipede lawn is proper fertiliza-
tion. Unlike many plants, grass
,needs very little fertilizer. In fact.
the more fertilizer you apply the
more serious pest problems be-
come. In most cases, one yearly
application of 15-0-13 or 10-10-
10 complete fertilizer is' all that's
needed.
You can add extra nitrogen in
the summer if the grass seems to
be losing color. Just don't add ni-
trogen in late summer or early
fall. Centipede grass that's had a'
lot of nitrogen will brown off very
quickly after a frost and lose its
cold 'tolerance. ,'
One of the common problems
with centipede grass is chlorosis.
or yellowing, caused by iron defi-
ciency. As we said earlier, centi-,
pede likes acid soil. If the soil is
too sweet-too alkaline-the
grass can't get the iron it needs.
You control iron chlorosis by low-
ering the soil pH. or by adding an
iron fertilizer-usually ferrous
sulfate or an iron chelate.
Centipede pest problems in-
clude insects called ground,
pearls. These can be especially
V-, .

.,troublesome. because there's no
good control available. 'Lawn iat- f

tion. check with your garden cen-
