County Wants Better



Ambulance Service

Amnesty Day Scheduled for Saturday,May 20


As ambulance service negoti-
ations for the southern end of
Gulf County prepare to get under-
way between the Gulf County
Board of Commissioners and Gulf
Pines Hospital; questions con-
cerning the failure to provide a
backup crew were aired at the
regular Commission ,, meeting
Tuesday night.
Past contracts between the
two parties have resulted in AD-
VANCE Life Support services be-
ing provided to residents of south
Gulf County. 'he agreement also
calls for backup crews to be pro-
vided when the primary ambu-
lance crew on call is in service, or
on an out-of-county transfer to
another hospital.
Joe Nugent, City of Port St.


Joe Police Sgt., told the Board he
was aware of three incidents in
just the last few weeks in which
the ambulance was called and
didn't respond in a timely fash-,
ion, because there was no backup,
crew to respond. Nugent issued
his concerns, noting that thus far
the county had been lucky be-
cause the nature of the calls had
Snot been life-threatening. But he
expressed his fear of the possibili-
ty of a major accident or illness
situation where an ambulance
was needed immediately, but no.
backup crew is going to be availa-
ble.
"Someone is going to die
sooner or later if something Isn't
done., he told the Board.

Consumer Alert

Cautioned Against Product Tampering
A report from the Gulf County Sheriffs Department was re-
ceived by the Environmental Health Section of the Gulf County
Public Health Unit concerning possible product tampering of a bev-
erage. A pinhole size puncture in the lid of the beverage's container
had been noted. Both agencies have investigated what could be an
isolated Incident at a local convenience store. No additional evi-
dence of tampering was found at the site. Further testing and anal-
ysis is being conducted.
At this time there has been no ingestion and no injury due to
consumption of a contaminated product For public safety and pro-
tection, the Gulf County Public Health Unit is asking the general
public and store personnel to be alert to possible product tamper-
ing.
If you have any questions or information regarding this matter,
please contact Doug Kent, at the Gulf County Public Health Unit at
227-12902.


tract negotiation session for May
2 at 5:00 p.m. to be held In the
Board's meeting room. Chairman
Michael Hammond said the con-
tract clearly states that a backup
crew will be provided and that the
problem would be addressed, em-
phasizing enforcement of the con-
tract.
AMNESTY DAY
Joe Danford, Gulf County's -
Solid Waste Director, told the
Board that Saturday, May 20th.
had been set aside for the
county's annual Amnesty Day.
The program allows Gulf County
citizens to dispose of such items
as paints, batteries, oils, house-
hold cleaning chemicals, and in-
secticides at no charge to the
household.
According to Danford there
will be two collection sites in the
county. One will be set up at the
Gulf County Courthouse to ac-
cept items for disposal from 9
a.m. till 4 p.m..EDT to serve the
south end of the county. The oth-
er site will be located at Lister's
Hardware in Wewahitchka, oper-
ating from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. CDT
'for residents in the northern part
of the county.

Gulf Fights for Disast


A furor ignited by several
unincorporated areas in flood
zones of the Panhandle seems to
have resulted in a more equitable
distribution of some $43 million
in grants which were awarded ini-
tially to eight flooded communi-
ties for distribution under the
Hazard Mitigation program.
The forty-three million is
part of a 180 million dollars doled
out by HUD for the states of
Georgia, Florida and Alabama to
compete with heavy flood damag-
es caused by last year's Tropical
Storm Alberto.
The grants were earmarked
for Tallahassee and Leon County
to share $18.7 million, the City of
Caryville in Washington County


$11.8 million, and the City of
Blountstown in Calhoun County
$7.3 million, Wakulla County $2
million and Franklin County $1.7
million, the City of Bonifay In
Holmes County $1.3 million and
the City of Chattahoochee.
$99,000. Gulf County and several
unincorporated areas in Washing-
ton, Holmes and Calhoun
counties were snubbed, as were
seven other counties. All of these
were under presidential disaster
declarations and all were recom-
mended for HUD grants by a
state community development
task force.
Gulf County Ignored
Larry Wells. Gulf County's
Disaster Preparedness Director,


er Money
told The Star that the county still
has received no funds from feder-
al or state sources, even though:.
they were approved late last sum-
mer. Wells stated to The Star, "We
weren't even invited to Join those'
other communities which were
omitted from fund distributions
to make a united effort In obtain-
ing the money, nor were we invit-
ed to join the other communities
in a concentrated effort to visit
the Cabinet in Tallahassee in an
effort to pry some funds loose."
Wells said Gulf County suf-
fered considerable damages, both
to the county infrastructure and
to approximately 80 homes in the

New "Tech Lab" for Middle School


Work is about .half completed on a new
"Tech Lab" suite being added to Port St. Joe
Middle School, under 'a state grant of
$297,000 for the building. The project in-
cludes adding 1,500 square feet of new con-
struction and remodeling 3,800 square feet
of existing building for a total of 5,300
square feet to be incorporated in the Tech
Lab.
Plans are to have the new education pro-
gram complete and in operation for the
1995-96 school year if everything progress-


es according to schedule. The new class-
room suite will provide middle school stu-
dents with a variety of technical studies
based on mathematics and science compo-
nents which will be needed in the 21st cen-
tury. The new program will assist students
in making decisions for the future direction
of their curriculum or goals in life. Included
in the lab will be such things as computer
science to enhance technical skills for the
students.

Project Results In Useful Product
j ec .. A.. .


From Waste Paper
to Useful Products
Wewahitchka High School
sophomore Charlie Cole demon-
strated his award winning science
'fair project to the Gulf County
Commissioners Tuesday night.
Charlie's project utilizes the
green plastic grass in the bottom
of Easter baskets, paper bags and
aluminum foil to produce dinner
plates stronger and more durable
than' paper and plastic plates
they were tested against.
The end product Is a cumula-
tion of four years of work that has
been refined, using different ma-
terials; to the point that it re-
ceived the "Showstopper Award"
at the regional science fair for the
project that attracted the most at-
tention by the judges. The exhibit
qualified Cole for the Internation-
al Science Fair, to be held in
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, by
winning the grand prize award for
the best physical science project
in the senior division. Along with
these awards, Charlie won two
special awards: the American Civ-
il Engineering Award and the Na-
val Science Award.
He explained to the commis-
sioners how he had re-pulped the
paper using a household blender
and added strips of aluminum foil
Sand the Easter grass when using
a mold, to shape the plate and a-
press to remove excess moisture.
He then oven-dried the material
fusing the product together as the
heat completed the drying pro-
cess.
Charlie said his plate held
Just over 55 pounds of weight


when tested against other paper
and plastic plates for surpassing
the pressure the "store bought"
plates were able to withstand.
The commissioners presented
Charlie with a check for $2,000,


from the county's recycling and
education grant, to help defray
his expenses to the International
Science Fair. In return, Cole will
set up demonstrations to show
other county students.

Big Mistake

ROBERT S. McNAMARA has probably done something no
other high ranking government official has done before and
probably won't happen again for a long while-admit he was
wrong on something as serious as the Vietnam War, which so
seriously divided the people of this nation.
,McNamara has written a book, explaining how the govern-
ment was so wrong in their assessment of the force behind the
Vietcong willingness to endure great hardship and casualties on
our supposition that Communism was the reasoning behind
their tenacity. The desire of Communism to rule the world was a
very real force in the days of the Vietnam War. As with most re-
cent conflicts, it was the 'flent' of Communism which steeled the
U. S. government's resolve to continue support of the War.
THE BOOK, AUTHORED by McNamara absolved every gov-
ernment leader of wrong reasons for continuing the War, al-
though it did admit that the decisions to continue at the time
were, looking from hindsight, wrong.
This admission didn't bring back the 58.000 American dead
from the war; It probably wasn't the first time military decisions
made by our government or other governments have been wrong
even though the leaders were convinced they were doing the
right thing at the time '..
SUPPOSE McNAMARA HADN'T been wrong in his opinion
about the conduct of the war and theUnited States had pulled
out and given way to Communism? Suppose it had then taken
over Southeast Asia and continued to spread unabated, as the
leaders feared? What would our legacy have been?
We're not saying, 'That's all right, fellows; you did what you
thought best and what if 58,000 young men did have to die?
Didn't they die protecting the world from insidious Commu-
nism?"
That's why our leaders age so much while they are' in office.
The tremendous weight of their responsibilities is so awesome!
PRESIDENTS KENNEDY and JOHNSON, Secretary of State
Dean Rusk, McNamara and General Westmoreland, all were
convinced if the United,States was not firm in Vietnam it would
have two results: Communism would take over that large por-
tion of the world [not realizing it was Ho Chi Minh's intense na-
tionalismfi and not Communism which was fueling the War] arid;
our declared intended support of our many allies against Com-
munism would be irreparably damaged.
Many of us in America could have been the co-authors of
McNamara's book!.It was an honest-although big-mistake!


Handy-Wasn't It?

PRAYER IN SCHOOLS AND other public functions, has all
but been outlawed during the past few years. "We didn't need it,"
was the almost universal cry. "It's unnecessary in these enlight-,
ened times," claimed the masses. Prayer in school was a waste of
time which could betterxbe spent studying. Besides that, if we al-
lowed prayer in school we had to allow all sorts of activities un-
der the guise of worship and we couldn't stand for that.
We've cut prayer out of many public activities graduation
exercises, Baccalaureate services, before ball games, opening
meetings, bef6re-public'.banquets and meals. Prayer was fast be-
coming something we-felt we could get along without-. We didn't
need It anymore.
UNTIL OUR NATION experiences a tragedy!
There were,no objections to bowing our collective heads in
prayer following the disaster of the bombing in Oklahoma
Wednesday.
There was an appropriate time for prayer and people didn't
have any problem with recognizing it as an appropriate time.
Even our President led the nation in prayer that things
would work out and people's lives would be spared in the disas-
ter which electrified the nation.
There was no embarrassment'or shame in bowing our heads
in prayer during this time when we had no other recourse.,
THE DAY SPENT IN prayer asking for God's help in dealing
with the trauma brought about by the devastation, publicly and
unashamedly calling on God, whom our nation had grown to ig-
nore, was joined in by the people of Oklahoma City, Sunday, as
well as the rest of the nation. We recognized we needed God's
help during this peflod of time and asked for. t-even begged for
it-expecting that help to be forthcoming. : ; *
Wouldn't we be better off if we kept prayer as our nation's
constant companion, rather than waiting to call on God, asking
for His Intervention only wheh we face insurmountable prob-
lems?

No Fun!


I'M ALMOST ASHAMED to
tell you about this. It makes me
seem so Infantile and child-like.
It's definitely something which or-
dinarily happens to young chil-
dren-or it did when I was a
child. This procedure was per-
formed on children almost-rou-
tinely as the answer to myriad ail- .
ments which plague pre-teen age
children. :
Here I am nearly with pre-_
teen age great-grandchildren, re-
ceiving the attention and treat-
ment normally reserved, for ado-
lescents. It's affecting me in the
same manner it does the kids,
however.
No, I'm not experiencing my
second childhood .., yet!
Just as it formerly was with
kids, this procedure which was
performed on me was supposed '
to be a "cure-all"' for anything
which was supposed, to all me,
from ingrown toenails to bad
breath.


I HAD MY TONSILS removed
last Fridayl Can you Imagine a
person of my tender years having
such a procedure performed- will-
ingly? Well, maybe it wasn't ex-
actly willingly. Certainly it wasn't
willingly after the deed was done
, I just thought my wife was
starving me to death, with the
diet she has me on. She doesn't
even know how to deny me suste-
nance. Let me tell you; that tonsil

however. It's better than oatmeal
But then, isn't anything?

WAY BACK WHEN I got sick.
about five, months ago, the doc-,
tors ascertained I had sleep ap-`
nea which could have contributed
to my illness. I didn't know I had
. it. They determined I was "waking'
up" something like 100 times a
night, trying to catch my breath.
I didn't know that! I was dead


to the world in dreamland, but
the doctors assured me it was so
and declared it ias dangerous for.
me to continue in that condition.
So they have been reaming
out my nose and throat in order
to enable me to' breathe easier. I
thought I was breathing pretty
easy after I managed to pay off:
my, mortgage, but they assured
me that I wasn't.

DID YOU EVER have your
tonsils removed?
It's the next best experience
to having your fingernails yanked.
out.by the' roots. I knew I wasn't
going to die and my throat would
get well in just a few days, but ,
you would have had a heck of a
time convincing me of that fact
last Saturday and Sunday..
Folks told me all kinds of
tales about what I would experi-
ence before I went to the Surgery
Center to get it done. I was told I
would lose 1710 pounds the easy.


way... because I would be una-
ble; to eat. There was nothing easy
about it .. ..
I was warned Iv wouldn't be
able to swallow for about a week
or more. I didn't think about how
I was going to get a Tylenol down
for the pain--one of the little side :
effects nobody warned me about.
I was .even told ;there wasn't
anything -to 'it! I have since
thought I misunderstood that bit
of advice and the person actually
said. "There is nothing you can
do about it." Which is true!

ALONG ABOUT THE time I
was unable to eat at least my
fourth meal-and would gladly

Was now unable to-I began to
ruminate over my unfortunate
situation. Why would anyone in
his right mind get up at' 5:00 in
the morning to get to Panama
City at 7:00 to get someone to

find myself in?
I concluded they have you
come so early in the morning be-
fore you become wide awake and
begin to have second thoughts
about the matter.
After you come out of'the an-
-esthetic and are waiting for a pe- i
riod of time before they will let
you come home, a sweet little
nurse comes swishing her uni-
form up to where you are lying
and asks, "Are you feeling all
right, Mr. Ramsey? Can I get you
anything?"
Of course, I couldn't say a
thing, with my throat torn out by
the roots like it was, but if I could
have talked I would have proba-
bly replied something like, 'Yes
Ma'am. I enjoyed having my
throat slit and if it isn't too much
trouble, would you bring me a
nice juicy hamburger and a milk-
shake?"
Instead, I vowed to myself
never to have my tonsils removed
ever again

ITo Whom It May Concern:
I, Rhonda' House, was
present- at an' interview. with'
Channel 13 News orn Tuesday,
April 18, in reference to child
abuse charges made against Ms.
Becky Weston on the treatment of
her first graders at Highland View
Elementary. I was also present at
a meeting with Walter Wilder con-
cerning the same situation. I
would like to go on record stating
that I was not fully and complete-
ly informed of the charges, but as
a concerned and caring parent I
acted in what I thought to be the
proper manner at the time by tak-
ing Immediate action.
After talking with several oth-
er parents and Ms. Weston her-
self, I feel that initially I made an
irrational decision to act without
first having all the facts. While I
may not approve of Ms. Weston's
methods, I fully believe 'here was
never any abuse In her class-,
room. I feel that as a teacher of
21 first graders, she is doing the

best she can to maintain control
In a room she has no aide in and
still manage to teach. I do not "
agree with some measures taken.,
but I do understand and I feel
confident that there has been no
abuse. I do' feel however that
teachers need aides in their
rooms not only to help maintain
control, but also to ensure that
misunderstandings such as this
one do not occur and cause un-
necessary problems for both
teachers, parents, and students
involved.
I am sorry for any problems,

like to state that I was acting at

would do that felt their child had

lot of catching up to do. Well now, let's see,.you have more grandchildren. now,

family. Vince and Wendy have graduated now-Vince is in the Navy and Wendy is
about to get married..So you're really missing a lot of the fun da) s. I krnoi% that ou
know most of what is going on, because I feel you around me a lot.
Well, Dad, I could go, on and on, but there's not enough space to print all my
thoughts and ishes-just know we still love and think of you everyday.
This -is in remembrance of Hubert Miller, who left this world on August 6,

Wells said, 'We've been left out in
the cold while other communities
such as Tallahassee, Blount-
stown and Caryville have been
approved for help."
The fuss raised over the dis-
tribution of funds is seeming to
get a more equitable distribution
promised to the communities, In-
corporated or unincorporated,
which suffered heavy flood dam-
age.
: Tallahassee City Comniis-
sioner Debbie Lightsey defended
the Tallahassee and Leon County

ignored. She said all the commu-

technicalities in some counties
which favor the rural communi-
ties flooded by Alberto.
Holmes County Commis-
sioner Earl Stafford hinted that
the inequitable division of funds
provided storm drainage in Leon
County while "we had homes
flooded here in our county."
GULF WORKING HARD
Wells stated that his office
and the Gulf County Commission
is putting forth every effort to see
that Gulf County gets its share
when the funds are redistributed
as Kenneth Williams, Deputy As-
sistant Secretary of HUD grant
programs in Washington, D.C.
promised, to Congressman Joe
Scarborough. Scarborough who


represents Congressional District
One (formerly Earl Hutto's dis-
trict) has been the force behind a
more equitable distribution of the
funds.' Williams said, "This is a lo-
cal issue. It is not rational that
HUD would make a choice as to
where the funds are distributed."
Wells said, "Since Gulf has
drawn attention to its needs not
being met, it appears as if Gulf
County might be in line to receive
a portion of the funds to correct
flood damages."

To the People of Port St. Joe

Allow me tp introduce myself; most of you know me, but to those that don't;'
my name is Wayne White, and I want to be YOUR City Commissioner -
Group I.
My wife, Geraldine, and I moved to Port St. Joe in 1954 where we have
Raised a family of four boys; Mike, Guy, Gary, and Stephen, all still reside in
the city with the exception of one-Guy. We love this city as well as the
people and wish to take a more active role in its future. I moved to St. Joe
because of a job opportunity with St. Joe Paper Company, and remained
employed there until 1957, when I accepted.a job with the late Byrd E. Park-
er, Sheriff of this county, as a Deputy Sheriff. I remained there for 13 years,
attaining the rank of Chief Deputy. In 1970 I accepted a position as the
Chief Investigator with the State Attorney's office, under the direction of the
late J. Frank Adams; serving in six counties: Gulf, Bay, Calhoui, Jackson,
:Holmes and Washington. I served in this position under three administra-
tions, the present being the Honorable Jim Applemanl, now State Attorney
for the 14th Judicial Circuit, where I now. serve as the Executive Director.
My primary responsibilities being the direction and supervision of 77 full
time employees, including: secretarial, administrative, investigative and ju-,
dicial departments, and the overseeing of a present state budget in excess of
3.5 million dollars.
I feel that with my 38 years of managerial experience and dealing with the
people on a day-to-day basis, often times handling crucial and difficult situa-
tions-fairly, enables me to be a commissioner for all of the citizens of Port
St. Joe.
My request to you is simple: Please go to the polls on May 9th and vote for
Wayne White for your City Commissioner.

I appreciate your help and support.

Allstate


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Port St. Joe for their support dur-
ing my term in office as your City Commissioner.
I am again asking for your support and vote in the upcoming election on May 9, 1995.
Much has been accomplished during the past four years. Some of these items that are of
particular interest I have discussed below.
1) I supported retaining the garbage program to preserve jobs in the City of Port St. Joe as
long as the program is self supporting.
2) I attended county commission meetings, with the support of Mayo" Pate, and have devel-
oped a working relationship with county government. I have requested and received funds
from the county for our garbage program, our recycling program and recreational facilities. I
have requested and received funds from the county for our road programs here in Port St.
Joe. I continually have a goal of working towards the betterment of government for all citi-
zens of Gulf County.
3) I support expanded sewer and water service for Ward Ridge through means that would
cost the current residents only their fair share with the balance being paid by owners of un-
developed properties in this area. Due to environmental concerns, this service will soon be
required for any further development.
4) I supported the Downtown Redevelopment Program from city limits to city limits. Grant
funds are up for approval for the first phase of this program.
5) During the past four years three new parks have been built in Port St. Joe and work is un-
derway on a fourth one., Our main concern is to get our kids off the street and provide ade-
quate recreational facilities for their enjoyment. Our program is so successful that.we have
had kids coming in from other counties to participate. A recreation director, Benny Roberts,
has been hired to coordinate recreation programs and oversee upkeep of recreational facili-
ties.
6) I supported new lights in the ball park in North Port St. Joe and the Washington gym.
7) A new '"walk park" for our older citizens is being built in North,Port St. Joe on the East-
side of the Washington gym. Consideration is also being given to building a "walk park"
from 10th to 16th Street.
8) Have proposed sidewalks from the high school all the way down Garrison Avenue and on;
Avenue A to the new housing development. This will allow our children to get off the street
when walking to and from school.
9) Supported Tripartite Committee working with Wastewater Treatment Plant in upgrading
lab and engineering programs to perform more duties in-house rather than going to outside
contractors at additional cost to the City.
The above are some of the main concerns I have been asked about. YoUr City Commission
is continually seeking ways to serve all citizens of Port St. Joe for their needs and concerns
and will welcome your comments and suggestions at any time.
If you have further questions or concerns, please call me at 229-8864.

Please go to the polls on May 9, 1995, and re-elect me as your City Commissioner.

THANK YOUI

noon, until the final out in the fi-
nal inning, when a single and a
wild pitch helped the Tallahassee
team pull ahead of the Sharks in
the last few minutes of the game.
The Sharks' pitchers only al-
lowed the team three hits for the
entire game, while touching NFC
hurlers for five safeties, which
they turned into the lead run in
the fifth inning.
Des Baxter was. on the
mound for the Sharks until. the
last out in the seventh, giving up
all the NFC hits, striking out one
and walking two. Russell Young
came on in relief and threw a wild
pitch, scoring the winning run for
.the Eagles.

off a double by Jess Colbert,
which drove in Cameron Likely,
who had walked.
Colbert was one for three
with a double and an RBI. Likely,

ford each added a hit for the
Sharks.

If you have a tooth that is
so badly broken that it is frac-
tured right down to the gum
line, your dentist may recom-
mend root canal therapy (to
save the. tooth) followed by
the post-crown procedure. In
this procedure, a post is used
to provide added support to
the crown. The post he uses
is a metal rod with a core at
the end of it. After root canal
therapy, he will fit the metal
post directly, into the tooth's
nerve canal and cement it into
place with the core extended
out to receive the crown. This
is the first stage. A crown will
then be prepared to fit over,
the core so the tooth will be
restored to proper function


and appearance. The crown
will be shaped to match the
natural contours of your teeth
and a natural-looking color se-
lected.
Often times a tooth will be-
come so badly damaged and
decayed that your first thought
might be to have it extracted.
Any natural tooth is worth sav-
ing because no artificial tooth
can fully replace its function
and chewing efficiency.


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

North Fla. Medical Merger Realized
.ot'a' e l er a 1ed


North Florida Medical Cen-
ters, Inc. headquartered in Wewa-
hitchka, has expanded its opera-
tion through a formal merger with
four other primary health care
corporations in northern Florida.
Effective April 1, North Florida
Medical Centdrs, Inc. merged
with Gadsdeni- Medical Center,
Inc.. of Quincy, Tri-County Family
Medical Care of Greensville and
Madison, Lafayette-Suwannee
Rural Health Corporation of
Mayo, and Family Medical Prac-
tice of Cross City.
The newly constituted corpo-
ration will be headed by Jim
McKnight of Wewahitchka who
has been named President and
Chief Executive Officer. The cor-
poration will operate twelve pri-
-mary care centers, three dental
practices, two home health agen-
cy offices, a midwifery program,
social service program, and five
Head Start centers. The combined

corporate entities provided servic-
es to 50,000 people in 1994 with
150,000 patient visits.
According to President
McKnight, "This merger has been
brought on by the rapidly chang-
Ing health care environment.
Bigger is better and we must find
ways to reduce costs and improve
productivity. The merging entities
have done well historically, but
we all say the need to merge in
order to have the economies of
scale necessary to compete in to-
day's market place."
"We will move expediently to
consolidate and reduce costs of
programs by negotiating price:
breaks given to higher volume
buyers. Additionally, we will ex-
pand programs and services to,
better serve all the citizens of the:
counties we serve. Additional fa-'
cilities and acquisitions are'
'planned and an expansion of our
midwifery program is a high pri-


Prity,"
'This merger is seen as a be-
ginning to our developing a com-
prehensive health care delivery,
system for our rural communities
We intend -to establish linkages
and affiliations with hospitals,
HMO's, and other entities to allow
us to deliver a full range of health

Music is Important to the Curriculum


(Written by Lee Ann Harbin and Bill
Thompson, Mowat Middle School)
Music is a combination of al-
most all subjects and can serve
as the unifying, object within any
curriculum. One might ask what
subjects are involved. Here is an
explanation of all the subjects in-
cluded within the music realm.
Music is ... .spelling, as shown
through the spelling of note
names with the music alpha-
bet (A, B, C, D, E, F. G).
Music, is math, as shown
through fractions in time sig-
natures and rhythm, counting,
note values and tempos. Music
uses one of the most powerful
and complex symbol systems
in existence, which can be
used for the development of
critical thinking. skills in all
students.
Music is History, as shown,
through the history of different
time periods and the musical.


styles and composers who
were a part of that time.
Music Is ... science, through ex-
perimentation of ideas and
sounds. New ideas are always
being created through different
types of sounds and rhythm
patterns.
Music is foreign language.
Most musical terms and sym-
bols have origins in languages
other than English. Music is
also referred to as the "univer-
sal language". One fundamen-
tal purpose of education is to
transmit our cultural heritage,
and music is a powerful means
for communicating that mes-
sage. '
Music is art, through expres-
sive beauty and style which
create all sorts of moods and
feelings.
Music is physical education,
through. finger movements
when playing instruments and'


the utilization of many muscle
groups for proper breathing,'
feeling and actually playing or
singing music.
Music also teaches the stu-
dent important values such as
self discipline, responsibility, in-
dependence. respect. good citi-
zenship, self-esteem and team-
work. It provides motivation and
an opportunity for success for at-
risk students. Music ,helps stu-
dents develop and mature. .
Musical potential is one of
those basic abilities that exists in
every human being and It has al-,
ways played a major role in socie-,
ty. It exalts the human spirit and,,
enhances the quality of life.
Through regular practices, it;
gives, students drive and determi-
nation, as well as something with
which to fill their time wisely.
Music makes a person com-',.
plete, more so. than food,' water,
words, or even love. One can feel.


and appreciate music, not just
sing or play it. It gives children
encouragement to grow and to
learn a great deal.
Music teachers can fill chil-
dren's lives with an enjoyment
and appreciation for music and
good values through their ideas,
efforts and creativity.
Exciting new research looks
into the benefits of listening to
, and especially studying music.
Reisher and Shaw have conduct-
ed controlled experiments and
concluded that listening to com-
plex, organized music (such as
Mozart) in some way exercises
pathways to the brain which en-
hances higher brain functions.
This "Mozart effect", as they
call it, causes an increase in
scores in the special reasoning IQ
tests they administered. The ef-
fect lasts for only about '10 min-
utes, since listening Is a passive
activity.


Continued research conclud-
ed that students who actually
participated in music by learning
an instrument or training the
voice received lasting benefits
which actually raised their spe-
cial reasoning skills.
SThe ancient Greeks realized
the benefits of studying'good mu-
sic and required it as part of a ba-
sic education. And many of the
current school reform studies na-
tionally are emphasizing the "to-
tal learning and leadership" con-
cept which is based on a solid


foundation in the arts.
Presidents and chief execu-
tive officers of some of America's
major 'corporations have testified
that the critical and intuitive
thinking skills, that students
learn in music, they are. looking
for in employees and corporate of-
ficers.
It is obvious that what has
been used in education practice
is not working to its fullest poten-
tial. Why don't we give music
and the arts a chance to make a
significant impact?

New Guidelines Set For WIC Certifition
New ui e rer flcatm r' $ ..


The Department of Health
and Human Services has released
the new. poverty income guide-
lines which are based on the Con-
sumer Price Index. These guide-'
lines became 'effective on-
February 9, the date of their pub-
lication in the Federal Register.
They are used to determine in-
come eligibility for the WIC pro-


gram at the time of certification
or recertification.
If you have children under
the age of five or a new baby on
the way, then you .may be inter-,
ested in this Federal Nutrition
Program offered here. in Gulf

gram of Women, Infants and Chil-'


dren up to age five.
WIC supplies foods for chil-
dren before they enter school' and
become eligible for the free or re-
duced school breakfast and lunch
programs. WIC also serves preg-
nant, postpartum and breast-
feeding women.-
Eligibility for WIC is based on
income and nutritional risks. In-l


come guidelines 'are very 'gener-
ous and vary according to the
number of persons in the family.
For example, a family of four
making $28,028,per year or $539
per week would qualify. Nutrition-
al' risk Is determined by obtaining
the height, weight. and hemoglo-
bin and health status of the per-
son applying for the program.
Persons receiving assistance from
other programs are also eligible
for the WIC program.
WIC provides a food package
tailored to meet the nutritional
needs of the population it serves.
Foods available include: milk,
cheese, juice, cereal, eggs, peanut
butter or dried beans or peas.
WIC benefits both the mother
and child.:,Pregnant' women en-
rolled in WIC have healthier ba-
bies. at birth. Children on WIC
have less anemia, which means
they will learn better in school.
The general public benefits since -
every $1 invested saves $3.50 in
special education and ,Medicaid
costs.

ing about this beneficial program,

Dole Receives Cheers In

Legislative Address
Only a Week In Session
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole got his biggest cheers fronr
the Florida Legislature last week with his call for more freedom for states
from federal government mandates and tougher measures against Cuban
dictator. Fidel Castro.
The cheers came from both Republican and Democrat members of
the Florida Legislature and their selected friends and families given pass-
es to the public galleries where the general public couldn't get in.
Why make a point- of the elitism of the Florida Legislature? Because
it's true. If the average Joe or Jane Doe comes to the capitol they pay for
through their taxes, they can't find a parking place or get in the so-called
public galleries on special occasions like the opening of the session or
visits from bigshots such as President Billary Clinton or Dole.
It's not fair, perhaps, for an old capitol hand like this reporter to
point it out. I can step inside press boxes in either chamber and probably
wouldn't be thrown out Age and experience in the news business has its
privileges too. I don't because I like to mingle with the average citizen
more and the un-retired press corps have more and tougher deadlines
than I do writing these pieces for 16 weekly and two better-than-average
small-daily newspapers.
I first noticed this capitol elitism (my Uncle Clem calls it bigshot-
itis) when I helped an artist cousin of mine sell some of her drawings at a
display at an arts and craft show held on the capital grounds a year or so
ago. Taxahassee officials had set up portable toilets for the workers and
general public on the capitol grounds. Just a few steps away, locked, up
like a drum, were spacious air-conditioned toilet facilities of the state
capitol.
If you're coming to Tallahassee you'd better brown-nose your repre-
sentative, the governor, a cabinet member, a judge, or a lobbyist first for
.a pass. They aren't hard to get. After all, they don't have to pay for it per-
sonally. \ .
I avoid perks as a policy. Sort of a reverse snob. I drive.my car to a
parking space far enough from the capitol to be free for the day and take
a ride in on the free downtown trolley designed for tourist and inner-city
folk. Going and coming that way gives me a chance to listen to the aver-
age citizen more. You hear a lot.'
I confess I didn't go to hear Clinton whom I consider a poor repre-
sentative and not typical of the best of our.baby boomer generation. I
watched Dole on inner-capitol television in the third house between the
two real house chambers where the lobbyists and political hangers-on
hang out.
Funny thing. Several spectators around me told me they'd-have
liked to have gotten into the gallery but they didn't want to be identified
in a quote. One was the daughter of a former.Florida circuit judge. The,
other a curious younger fellow, both working on some special political
project. They didn't want to offend the politicians inside. I even detected
soine fear of the power of the bigshots prancing around before the came-
ras inside. I don't get that fear from the folk on my public trolley.
Capitol police tell me much' of the controls they keep on visitors to
the capitol-including shutting down on weekends during local festivals-
- are safety precautions. I don't believe it. Clem is right. It's bigshot-itis.
The 1995 Florida legislature, like always, has come into focus with
only about a Wveek,left in this session which may-after all-go into a
short overtime onrthe nitty-gritty issues.
The Senate is poised to. undo the legislation slipped through last
year by Gov. Lawton Chiles and his cohorts stripping any responsibility
in lawsuits of snsmokers for sickness brought on by their habit. The bill
was pulled from Ways and Means. It can now appear-like magic-
anytime on the Seriate calendar.
.The House-with no debate--oted not to allow any state money to
'be used to pursue last year's bill which allows Chiles to sue for state
healthcare losses. It also voted not to allow attorneys to collect contin-
gency fees in the suits. Under the scheme, private attorneys would have
gotten a commission on the awards won. Nothing. If they lost.
Chiles is expected to veto any bill interfering with his plans to sue
the tobacco companies and-guess what?- he has even coined another
one of those old cracker sayings to help him do it.
"It is a sorry frog who won't holler in his own pond." Chiles wroteI

ulations and paid for in part by public tax money.
Two bills passed the Florida House last week allowing charter
schools and parental choice In all public schools. The senate had earlier
passed its charter school bill. There is no companion parental choice in
public schools in the Senate bill. It was a late idea by House Speaker Pe-
ter Wallace, who ha, been luke-warm in his support of charter schools,
opting instead for locker class sizes in the lower grades.
The principal differences in the Senate and House charter school
bills are: \
The Senate would allow, unlimited number of charter schools, the
House only three in counties with populations of 50,000 or more, and
only one in counties under 50,000.
Only local school boards can authorize charter schools in the Sen-
ate version. The House bill allows school boards the first right of refusal
but provides 'for the Board of Regents and State Board of Education to
also grant charters.
S The Senate provides a financial incentive to groups that organize
charter schools for the poor rural and inner-city districts. The House
gives no financial incentive.,
Both bills prevent existing private and parochial schools, from ap-
plying for charters to share in public tax money.


'CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM




Disease


Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.


SEvery spring there is a flurry of patients with Fifth Disease. It is
called Fifth Disease because it is the 5th childhood disease that is
remarkable because of a rash. The other childhood diseases with
ashes areimeasles," hickenpox, scarlet fever and roseola. Other
names used for Fifth Disease are, Erythema Infectiosum and
Parvovirus B 19 Disease. Parvoviius B 19 is the virus that causes
Fifth Disease.
In children, the rash of Fifth Disease is the striking feature.
There is little In the way of fever or other symptoms. Usually the
cheeks are bright red, giving a "slapped cheek" appearance. A lacy
rash appears on the arms and moves down the trunk, thighs and
legs. The rash comes and goes In response to changes In
temperature and sunlight and may appear for weeks or months.
Children do not need to be excluded from school or other group
activities.
The most serious problems with Fifth Disease occur when a
pregnant woman becomes Ill with the disease. In 10% of pregnant
women who become ill with Fifth Disease, during the first half of-the
pregnancy, the fetus dies. If the Illness occurs in the last half of the
pregnancy the danger is minimal. Congenital anomalies do not
occur with Parvovirus B 19 disease.
The incubation period for secondary illnesses in a family or
group is 4 14 days.
Rarely people with Fifth Disease .can have a crisis illness
because the red blood cells have been involved and destroyed, but
usually in children it is a very mild (undetectable) illness with the
characteristic rash.

many animals, particularly with the petting zoo where the giraffe
took Mrs. Weston's glasses off her head, along with a bit of her
hair! '
Shown are part of the class with Mrs. Weston: (1 to r, 'back row),,
Bridget Bryan, Justin Catrett, Crystal Lewis, Taylor Green, Joy
Martin, Brent Butler and Codee Richter. Sitting with their teacher
are Alisha Chavous, Kortney Presnell and A. J. Rhein. Mrs. Weston
and the.class appreciates the chaperones who participated..

Time to Start "Scratching" Around New Potato Vines

Even Though Potatoes Are Hardy, They are Susceptible to Numerous Diseases and Insects


One of the most popular vege-
tables grown by backyard garden-
ers is the Irish potato. If you've
included potatoes 'in your spring
garden now's the time to think
about harvesting this crop. I will
address some of the proper tech-
'fiques' to, use, to avoid some of
the common, problems of decay,
sprouting and physical injury.
Irish potatoes grown in Flori-'
da are usually ready for digging
about 80 to 90 days after they're
planted. If they're left alone, the
tops of the plants die down natu-
rally and the tubers stop growing
by about 120 days after planting.
This 30 to 40 day period gives
you some harvesting options.
Like many gardeners, you
may choose to dig a few early po-
tatoes before the tubers have
reached full size and maturity.
Or, you could dig, the tubers as
you need them, from the time
most are ready until the plants
die. However, the most common
approach is to wait until the tu-
bers are completely mature, and
then harvest the entire crop.
If you choose the 'one-time
harvesting method you'll need to
be especially careful to dig and
store the potatoes properly. Many
problems can arise after this type
of harvest; problems such as tu-
ber decay, shriveling, sprouting,
greening, and Injury from insects

and rodents.
G'ulfCou First, if you're going to har-
Gruf COUnty vest the entire crop at one time,
Extension Service leave the potatoes in the ground
as long as possible until the plant
tops die back naturally. With this
additional maturity period, the
surface skin of the tubers be-
comes tougher, and more resist-
ant to scratching and digging in-
jury. However, to minimize
rotting, dig your potatoes before
the June rainy season.
About 10 to 14 days before
digging,, cut the vines at ground
level with shears, a sharp knife,
or a lawn mower. This helps the
skin become tougher. Be very
careful when removing tubers
from the 'ground. Skinned.
bruised, and cut potatoes are
much more prone to decay.
After the potatoes are dug,
Roy Lee Carter, clean them to remove dirt and
Agent possible decay organisms. If you
have only a few. potatoes-say a
*bushel or two-use a soft brush



Make Application


to Harvest Gators


Preparations are once again
underway for Florida's annual al-,
ligator :harvest, and anyone who
would like to take part can pick
up an application beginning May
'.
Applications will be available
at all Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission regional
offices. However, anyone who ap-
plied for a permit last year (even
if he was not selected) will have a
1995 application sent directly to
his' home automatically. Last
year's applicants need not call
the Commission unless their ad-
dress has changed, or they have,
not received an application' by the,,
first week in May.
Completed applications are
due by June I at the Commis-
sion's Gainesville office.
"Hunters will be selected to-
tally at random through a compu-
terized drawing," said Harry Dut-
ton, a biologist with the
Commission's Alligator manage-
ment Section, '"That way everyone
has an equal chance of being
picked, even if they were selected'
last year or at any time in the
past."
Dutton also said the drawing
i ill determine where the trappers
can hunt, and during' which
phase. The Commission has se-
lected 39 areas around the state
for harvesting from September 1-
15, and again from September
16-30. Hunters can rank their
areas of preference on their appli-
cations. -
'We expect to pick approxid.
mately 550 participants this
year," Dutton said.;, "Depending
on the results or our alligator.
surveys conducted in May. each.
trapper will be allowed to take'
four to six alligators."
Everyone who is chosen must
purchase a non-transferable trap-
ping license by July 15 (if they,
fall to do so. their permit will be
assigned to someone else). The,
cost is $250 for Florida residents,
$1,000 for non-residents. There
is also a charge for validating the

hides of all alligators taken dur-
ing the hunt. The fee is $15 for
hides measuring less than seven
feet, and' $30 for hides longer
than seven feet. It is illegal to.
take alligators less than four feet
long.
Selected applicants also. will
be required to attend a three-
hour training and orientation pro-
gram to be held at several loca-
tions throughout the state during
July and August.
"Anyone who wants to take
part in the harvest needs to re-
turn his application as quickly as
possible.." said Dutton. 'We will
start selecting hunters after the
application information is com-
piled in June and will notify, peo-
ple by June 30."
Hunters with permits will be
allowed to have three trapping
agents to assist them. Assistants
must have a non transferable
trapping agent's license, which
costs $50.
To be eligible for the hunt,
applicants must be at least 18
years old. Anyone convicted of vi-
olating wildlife laws relating to al-
ligator trapping during the past
five years is ineligible.

or burlap rag, and clean them by
hand. You can waslh larger quan-
tities. But, don't wash them to-
gether in a tub. This quickly
spreads decay organisms. In-
stead, spread the tubers out and
hose them down with a spray of
water or rinse each one by hand.
Damp potatoes are much more
likely to rot. So, dry them 'thor-
oughly before storage. A good rule
is to dry potatoes for three or four
hours in the sun, after washing.
Potatoes should be stored in
a cool, dark; dry, well-ventilated'
. area. While potatoes store best at
