Gulf County Calls Halt To "Cutting Bait"
.. -Decide to Fish Instead
.... Utilizing Idle Anglers
A delegation of 75 to 100
commercial fishermen, whole-
salers, and retailers packed into
the Gulf County Commission
room Monday night for a special
meeting between the Board of
Commissioners and representa-
tives of the fishing industry-iron-
ing out details of Gulf County's
venture into the commercial fish-
As reported in last Thursday's
edition of The Star, the Gulf
County Commissioners voted to
enter Into the commercial fishing
business for governmental pur-
poses. Citing Section 16 of Article
10 in the Net Ban Amendment
which says, "This section shall,
not apply to the use of nets for
scientific research or governmen-
tal purposes," Commissioner
Warren Yeager told the group
Monday, "If keeping Gulf County
citizens employed is not a govern-
mental purpose, then we don't
JUST UNDER THE WIRE
The county's program kicks
off June 15, just 17 days before

been passed down for genera-

Gulf County's plan establish-
es the county -as the governmen-
tal entity authorizing agents to
buy fishery products from proper-
ly licensed Gulf County citizens.
The agents and fishermen will be
required to enter into a contractu-
al agreement with the county in

In Yeager's reading of the res-
oluUon passed by the Board, he
pointed out to participate In Gulf
County's Fisheries Program, flsh-

ucts thorough a county-designat-
ed wholesale or retail seafood
dealer, who will collect a partici-
pation fee, of two percent of the
dockside value of the fishery
product unloaded, and remit it to
the county on a monthly basis.
After explaining the resolu-
tion and contract specifications
the Board fielded questions con-
cerning the program from those'
present. Small County Coalition
consultant, and Director of
Southeastern Fisheries Associa-
tion, Bob Jones, was also present
to help explain the county's posi-
tion. He told the fishermen,
"Things shouldn't be much differ-
ent than what you're doing now if
this holds up."

German Economic Group Visits 8 ;(

In Port St. Joe and Gu
Last week four German eco-
nomic development professionals
from the Ostthuringen region of
tht: state of Thuringia toured the'
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council, headquartered in
Blountstown, to learn about
American approaches to econom-
i.c development. The group was in
Port St. Joe and Gulf County Fri-
day, touring small business,
banks and management corpora-
tions. The Germans are visiting
as part of an exchange which
pairs regional development organ-
izations in the U. S. and regions
in the former East Germany. The
exchange program is organized by
the National Association of Devel-
opment Organizations (NADO) Re-
Ssearch Foundation in cooperation
with the German Marshall Fund
of the United States and the Ger-
-man Federal Economics Ministry.

tween German and American eco-
nomic development professionals.
"We are sharing our 30 years

Gera which anchors the region;
Dr. Wolf-Peter Pankau, head of
economic development for the city
of Altenburg; Holgar Richter, a
member of the management staff.
responsible for the new German
states as the Federal Ministry of
Economics. His main duty is fos-
tering cooperation with local com-
munities and counties in the area
of economic development. Prior to
working at the Economics Minis-

eral privatization agency (the
Treuhandanstalt) helping with
the sale of former East German
businesses and property.

Forced Into It
WE DON'T PARTICULARLY like the government getting into
private business operations; especially where private individuals
and capital can do a better and more efficient job at a cheaper
price to the customer. One of these ventures is the fishing busi-
However, the state of Florida doesn't leave us any alternative.
Local government must get involved or just forfeit any hopes off
maintaining any semblance of a commercial fishing operation,
which the great majority of those of us here in Gulf county don't
wish to see happen.
So, local government has fulfilled its duty. Gulf County's lo-
cal government has taken the only avenue left available to us by,
getting the county in the position of becoming a commercial en-
terprise in order to protect the livelihood of a goodly portion of
its people and protect its sizable investment in a giant freezer-
the largest along the coast from Tampa t: Mobile, Ala.-built
specifically for handling seafood
WITH THE OPPOSITION the commercial fishermen have
from the Marine Fisheries Commission here in Florida, we don't
see them allowing the County to get away with this ploy, accept-
ing the position of commercial fishermen in name only, just to
get around the law. We expect them to buck it, just as they have
every move made by the commercial fishermen; a group they
were originally created to help, instead of hinder.
Don't look for each of the five Gulf County Commissioners to
go around with a pair of white rubber boots in their car, charac-
teristic of a fisherman; or become the rugged individualist which
most fishermen are. They will still be politicians, willing to bend
to any task for the good of their constituents. We're just proud of
them for seeing a need and meeting that need before it's too late.
THE STATE TOURISM community should join in approving
their actions also. What will a Florida be like which has no fish
or shrimp for the thousands of seafood restaurants which have
sprung up over the state and become renowned for serving their
tasty, fresh seafood. Florida wouldn't be the same without them.
There are a number of imitators, but somehow their frozen
fare which is mostly caught in distant waters, just doesn't meet
muster when it comes to comparing with the fresh-caught prod-
uct. We've gotten used to it and we feel the MFC would be a little
less inclined to enforce regulations which weren't there' if they
could only eat one fried-while-it-was-still-flipping mullet!
Use Warning Restraints
WE AGREE WITH Panama City Beach Police Chief Lee Sulli-
van. It has been our contention for a long time. Officials should
stop scaring the be-Jeebers out of people unless there is some-
thing to scare them about.
Hurricane Allison should be a case in point. At no time along
its journey through the Gulf did it pose the threat which it was
given credit for., .
A professional member of a National Weather Service hurri-
cane hunter squadron; whose business and duty it is to fly into
the eye of such storms for several years said there, was no real
danger from Allison. If he knew, the emergency: people knew.
WE ARE NOT ADVOCATING the abolition ,pf giving out dan-
;ger warnings and keeping the people advised on a storm's
progress. That should be a mandatory task of the emergency
people. But call a screeching halt to this practice of advising eve-
rybody to get out of the path of every blow which springs up.
In our mind, that practice is more dangerous than the storm
the magnitude of Allison could ever be for two reasons:
Reason number 1-People aren't fools. They can protect
themselves if they know what they are facing. When they return
to their homes after leaving for an Allison and see a minimum of
inconvenience to those "foolhardy" people who' stayed, they just
may ignore the same warnings on, say, a "Kate" and really get
Reason number 2-Trying to safely drive in a glut of traffic
with the crying kids and the family dog and cat in the car at one
time is an activity which is difficult enough on a clear day, with-
out compounding the risk of having to do it In stormy weather.
WE'RE NOT DOWN-GRADING the purpose of the emergency
people here. We have left for a safer location on occasion, but we
have exhibited a little common sense in doing so, weighing the
danger in staying and the danger in leaving. You emergency peo-
ple do a good and needed job.
And, for heaven's sakes, notify the people in Weather that "in
between" Apalachicola and Panama City is a very important little
city, containing a numberi- of good people, by the name of Port St.
Joe. A number of people here are lulled into a sense of false se-
curity, because we haven't been identified as the possible target
of ANY storm!

Emily Was All State Two Years Running
I'm not a big basketball fan,
but I've been watching some of
the NBA playoffs. They play on a
plane that's above my compre-
hension. Of course, at 5'10 1/2" I
didn't shoot many sky hooks over
anyone and I didn't spend much
time above the rim. As a matter of
fact I've 1NEVER been above the
rim. I guess that's why I watch in
awe as Shaq and Hakeem battle
for rebounds bouncing up off the

is the 3 point shooting from nev-

those guys are bombing 'em in

small back yard. And an ever
spreading mimosa tree took up
most of it. The basketball goal
was tucked in a back corner. I

I'd followed my big brother down
the street. Leon and Jackie would
be taking on Paul David and big.
John Ed Gardner. They missed
more than they hit. And if they
were playing to 10 baskets I no-

teams reached 7 or 8. I'd never
seen a real basketball game-I
didn't know a thing about fouls
and free throws, and such-but

he started for the basket didn't

Clearly, that shot was a har-
binger of my basketball career.
A few years passed and Leon

to the high school gym. Ricky
Gene and Yogi and me moved
into Paul David's back yard. Our
ball was autographed *by some
guy' named Bob Cousy. And it
wouldn't .bounce worth a flip on
that grass. And just imagine try-
ing to dribble on the uneven dirt
"court" we'd worn down directly
in front of the goal. After a rain
we'd have to dnbble over the wa-
ter in the pot poles. That's when
we adopted the two step rule. You
could take two steps (sometimes
vou could stretch it to three or
four) after your last dribble if you
were going to shoot. I know you
must be familiar with this rule-
the NBA has been using it for

to move a little .closer. But that
didn't help, much. I tried one

took that as a positive sign.

goals at each end. Folks, we were

Greg is probably the most in-

will see in his yard.
Greg must be a frustrated

walking by and saw ,three boats
sitting in his back yard, all lined
up side by side, like soldiers at

county 'would be identified, the
Board responded that Initially
they would have to carry a copy of
their contract with them, but
some type of I.D. system would be
worked out for the future.
WOULD COVER ALL NETS
The county's resolution Intent
would coQve all nets. including
shrimp nets,' under the Net Ban
Guy Gibson asked the Board
how new. rules ,.made by the
Marine Fisheries Commission
would affect them. Bob Jones
responded that the Commission
would still be able to make rules
but those rules had to be
approved by the Governor'and the.
Cabinet. "If we do our job right it
might not be a problem," he said.'
Gene Raffield thanked the
Board and Bob Jones, Individual-
ly and collectively, for their efforts
and leadership in trying to pre-
serve the fishing industry in Gulf
County. "It's been said you can
only get so low in the barrel-well,
we're about as low as you can
.get," Raffield said.
He, encouraged everyone to
abide by the laws. "We are law
abiding citizens-hopefully this
can- be handled through the
courts." Raffield told the Board
somewhere between 80 to 85 per-
cent of the people in Gulf County
agree with what they are doing
(according to Gulf Cdiunty's bal-
'loting on-the Net Ban Amendment
Bob Jones summarized to the
gathering that they were going to
be scrutinized very closely by the
other 66 counties in the state and
by those in other states. "This is
an unprecedented,move," he said
about determining what is a gov-
ernmental purpose by the Board
:of Commissioners. -
The resolution adopted by the
County Commission requests the
Florida Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion enact a rule capping the har-
vest of saltwater fishery products
from GUlf County at the highest
levels of harvest within the past
five years for all fishery species in
Gulf County that would have been
affected by the net ban.

fishery program can be picked up

Sliger reported that 15 teach-

caterpillars occur in the spring
and summer. And, as might be
expected, children, campers, and
gardeners are the most frequent
victims. When playing or working
outdoors in infested areas, it pays
to wear a long sleeved shirt, long
pants, and gloves.
Reactions to caterpillar poi-
son vary with an individuals.
Sensitivity itching, burning,
swelling, and nausea may be ex-
perienced. In several cases, fever,
shock and convulsions may oc-
cur. If a person has a history of
hay fever, asthma or allergy-or if
allergic symptoms develop-a
physician should be contacted w
immediately. In cases of milder
reactions, a strip of adhesive tape
should be placed on and pulled
off the affected area repeatedly to
remove the spines. Then apply ice
packs, followed by a paste of bak-
ing soda and water.
Since so few stinging caterpil-
lars are normally found on plants
around the home, mechanical
methods usually offer the easiest
means of control. Just carefully
remove and crush the caterpil-
lars, or knock them into a pan of
kerosene. If a pesticide is needed,
"sevin or diazinon may be used in
accordance with label directions
for caterpillar control.

Because hurricanes can
damage water systems and cause
contamination, store water if a
hurricane is imminent. Water can
be stored in clean bathtubs, jugs,
bottles and cooking utensils.
During hurricane season,
keep your vehicle's fuel tank full
to be prepared for sudden evacu-
ation. Service stations may be out
of service after a hurricane
If a hurricane warning is is-
sued, board up or tape windows.
Tape may not keep a window
from breaking, but it can help re-
duce the danger of flying glass.
Check refrigerated foods for
spoilage if an electrical power out-
age occurs. Foods that are not
properly refrigerated, or that are
not cooked thoroughly during
preparation, can harbor danger-
ous bacteria that can cause food
Check now to make sure
you have sufficient homeowners
and flood insurance. Most insu-
rance companies won't issue new
coverage once an area has been
placed under a hurricane watch
People should also inspect
the grounds around their homes
prior to hurricane season to help
eliminate or reduce damage from
trees. Foresters with the Depart-
ment's Division of forestry recom-
mend the following:
Look for dead or dying
branches on trees, and prune
them so they can't be torn off and
become destructive projectiles.
Remove dead or dying trees
from your property. Some trees or
branches tan be removed by the
homeowner without special
knowledge or equipment, but big
jobs should be performed by a
tree surgeon or professional tree
service. Make sure the company
is licensed and insured.
Remove branches that may
brush the roof during balmy days
with light breezes. During a hur-
ricane, the constant friction of a
large limb could wear a hole
through the roof.
If young trees need bracing,
avoid props that can be torn loose
by high winds and cause damage.

WHAT REALLY IS
V Although commonly used by authorities to describe the
indiscriminate use of those drugs associated with "turning
on," "kicks," and "trips," it also is the unwise use of any
drug. Too much aspirin, constant use of a nose spray,
excessive dependence on a cough syrup would all be good
examples of drug abuse.
Actually, you abuse your body when you rely too much
on over-the-counter, non prescription medications when
you are sick. Rely instead on the knowledge and experience.

' Vews On Dental Y-ealth
FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
Does toothbrushing or eat-
ing hard foods make your gums
bleed? If so, you can be sure
that some inflammation is going
on. Pockets of bacteria may
have developed around some
of your teeth.
Gum tissue has two parts.
the lining or surface tissue is
called the epithelium. The
dense supportive tissue that
lies under it is called connec-
tive tissue. In the early destruc-
tion phase, called gingivitis,
bacteria attack the gum lining
and connective tissue. Your
body sends cells to fight the
bacteria, but some of them are
destroyed in the process.
When, these cells die, enzymes
and other substances are re-
leased that contribute to the
destruction of gum tissue and
bone. As the disease progress-
es you may notice that your
gum tissue looks red and
shiny. It may also look slightly
puffy or swollen and bleed
Fortunately, gum disease,
even at this stage, is reversible
if you ge,t the treatment you
need from your dentist. The
longer you delay treatment,
however, the greater your
chances of losing teeth.

vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of

Tropical Storm Alberto flooded my
family's trailer.- Just thinking
about the approaching storm sea-
son makes me nervous, and I
can't sleep when it rains. We did-
n't have enough money to fix the
whole trailer and there is still one
room that leaks. I am afraid that
the roof will fall in before we can
afford to get it replaced. I know
it's been a year but I feel like I'm
going crazy, and that I shouldn't
be so afraid of another storm.
What can I do to get over this?
Flooded with Anxiety
Alberto caused such vast
damage that it was a
Presidentially declared disaster.
Studies have shown that it often
takes disaster victims over a year
and sometimes up to three years
to feel that life is back to "nor-
mal." In fact, sleeplessness and
fears of another flood are two of
the most common lasting reac-
tions to this type of disaster. And
with all the confusing inforination
about government buy-outs and
free grants, many people are feel-
ing hopeless about repairing their

What are favorite ingredients for
Southern-style salads? According to an
informal poll, black-eyed peas, goat
cheese and dried fruits are just a few
ingredients gaining popularity among
the region's salad lovers. To get to the
bottom of Southern salad bowls, Kraft
Foods polled residents and chefs to find
out what's new and fun in salads.
According to the Kraft poll*, gone
are the days when salad meant mun-
dane-Southerners are taking advan-
tage of the increased availability of
fresh vegetables and setting new taste
trends by experimenting with non-tra-
ditional ingredients. On average, the
poll shows people in the South add four
to six ingredients to salads and popu-
lar additions are bacon bits, croutons
and bean sprouts. Southern restaurant
chefs give their salads a special twist
by adding such ingredients as fried egg
roll wrappers, purple potatoes, dried
cherries and tropical fruits.
The poll also found' chefs use the
fresh taste of herbs to unlock the great
taste of salads. Across the country,
herbs are becoming an increasingly
popular way to add flavor and excite-
ment to foods with little effort. In re-
sponse, Kraft is introducing fresh news
in salads with Kraft HerbTM dressings,
which feature one distinct herb flavor
for one great taste. The five varieties
are: Creamy Cucumber Dill, Dijon
Dill, Red Wine Vinegar & Thyme,
Garden Tomato Basil &. Oregano and
Italian Tomato & Oregano:
"'Southerners can have fun with
their salads by adding a variety of
foods indigenous to the region, whether
it's Georgia peaches, tropical fruits
and seafood from Florida or North
Carolina smoked .ham," says Carol
Blindauer, division manager, Kraft
Creative Kitchens. "To dress up these,
ingredients, salad lovers look for
dressings with personality, such as
new Kraft HerbTM dressings."
Here are some additional highlights.
from the, regional survey:
Compared to two years ago, 17
percent of Southerners are ejiing mo.re
Across America, more than
$4,000 worth of property is set on
fire every minute, making arson
one of the costliest crimes facing
the nation today. But that's just
part of the.cost. ,
"In addition to costing the
state nearly $30 million in prop-
erty losses last year, arson fires
killed 150 Floridians," said Bill
Nelson, State Treasurer an Fire
Marshal. 'Those tragedies mark
arson as a deadly crime that we
must all take steps to fight in eve-
ry way we can."
The first week of May was
designated National Arson Aware-
ness Week to raise Americans'
consciousness and enlist their ef-
forts in the fight against arson.
Motives for. arson vary widely
but include vandalism, revenge
and greed. Nelson urges citizens
to contact their local fire or police
department if they know or sus-
pect that an arson crime has
been committed. Citizens should
also report any suspicious activi-
ty near a house or other building
to the police and support Neigh-
borhood Watch programs. Nelson
offered other steps that should be
-Keep leaves, firewood or
other combustibles away from
buildings. A vandal may see a
stack of firewood against a house
or garage as an invitation to start
-Keep doors and windows
locked when a building is unoc-
-Take keys away from em-
ployees who leave the company. A
disgruntled former worker with
access to the building could de-
stroy a business.
-Take safety measures such
as installing a burglar alarm and

U. S. High Court Is A
Threat to Districts
Drawn to Favor Blacks
Most Florida Black Legislators Come
from Districts with White Majorities
As the U. S. Supreme Court considers doing ,away with those
odd-shaped voting districts designed to elect blacks, some encouraging
facts should be noted in the sunshine state.
Only one of Florida's five black state senators has a black majority
district. White voters have a small majority in three of the districts
where blacks were elected and in one district in Miami, black
Democratic Sen. Darryl Jones was elected from a 60 percent white
In the Florida House, which has 15 black representatives, black
voters are in the majority in nine of the districts. White voters make up
73 percent of Gainesville Democrat Cynthia Chestnut's district, 62
percent of Rep. Larcenia Bullard's Miami district, and 55 percent of
Rep. Muriel Dawson's Fort Lauderdale district.
A phenomenon this column has remarked on L.fore is that the gain
in total number of blacks elected (three in the Senate and four in the
House) came at the; expense of former Democratic incumbents. The
1992 redistricting to benefit blacks injured the Democratic party and
helped the Republicans. Combined with the conservative trend of the
times and, of course, the growing number of Republicans coming to
Florida, it created the first Republican Florida Senate in more than 100
The sad part is- that black folk especially black politicians have
lost influence in the political process because they were segregated into
black districts. Republicans not only got elected easier because blacks
are traditionally Democrats they don't have to court blacks on the issue
The U. S. Supreme Court appears likely in the next several weeks to
knock-down those bizarre districts that look like a spider web thrown
across a map. In Florida, that means two districts are in Jeopardy: U. S.
Rep. Corrine Brown's district stretching out of Jacksonville and State
Sen. Jim Hargrett's district out of Tampa. Both Democrats, of course.
The supreme court also may do something drastic about affirmative
action. programs that seem to have run their course in the U. S. and
may be relegated to a place in history.
It appears to be growing up time for some black citizens and it is
Me and Uncle Clem Rednek over on Flat Creek in Gadsden Coutnty
aren't suggesting Florida has suddenly become color blind. We aren't
making any patronizing statements that some of our best friends are
black either, although it may be true.
Our point was best made, perhaps, by white actor Gregory Peck
who looked at a complaining black soldier actor (I think It was Nat King
Cole) in an old Korean War movie named Pork Chop Hill after they had
finished a charge up that bloody hill and said: "Join the club."
It was a classic statement of that period cementing the fact that the
U. S. Army was finally really desegregated.
Me and Clem would say today: "We're all in this together. What's
good for us is good for you too."
Capitol News Round-Up
Florida's court system is about to drop the other shoe on how much
some 650,000 vehicle owners will get back of the $295 illegal impact
registration fee they paid to bring, their cars and trucks into the state.
The state high court last week denied a request for interest on the
money collected in 1991-92-93 before the fee was ruled unconstitution-
al and ordered the lower court to set court costs (including attorney
fees) and get cracking on returning the money.
The next shoe to drop, of course, will be the amount the lawyers,
will be allowed to charge for their successful suit. They asked $51.8
million in interest which was:denied. The lawyer fees and court costs
which the circuit was ordered to set within 3Q days will shrink the
amount payers of the $295 feewill eventually receive. ,. .
CASINOS ROLL 'EM AGAIN. Florida voters can expect to be asked
to approve as many as 20 casinos in hotels and on riverboats across
the state in, the 1996 election. The high court ruled last week the
constitutional amendment proposed by casino interests for the fourth
time meets the clear language and one subject requirements. The voters
have defeated casino proposals by huge majorities in 1994, 1986 and
1978, but gamblers itseems keep on rolling the dice.'
CHILES SIGNED BILLS: Although Gov. Lawton Chiles has
promised to veto the repeal of a law giving him a big advantage in suing
tobacco companies, he signed legislation requiring prisoners to serve 85
percent of their sentences.
It was the opening play in the veto-or-not game that will end at the
end of this week on the deadline Chiles has to sign, veto or let stand
without his signature some 373 bills passed by the Florida Legislature.
The ,85-percent prison sentencing bill was the centerpiece of Chiles'
narrowly defeated opponent Jeb Bush of Miami in the 1994 election.
Chiles- favored a slightly lower percentage. The law requires repeat and
violent criminals to serve 85 percent of their sentence time and imposes
life sentences for the fourth first degree felony conviction.
Attorney General Bob Butterworth asked Chiles to veto the
telecommunications bill that climaxed a huge lobbying effort in
Tallahassee and allows competition for local phone services.
"The consumer has to be protected until there is competition, and I
don't see that protection in this bill," Butterworth said.
.Local telephone,'companies and the cable TV industry favored the
bill while long distance companies, including AT&T, opposed it.
Chiles has threatened to veto the bill although it passed in the
House and Senate with only one nay vote, He hasalso threatened to
veto the entire budget* because, .he said, it stressed prisons over
Legislative observers think he will veto selectively. leaving most of
the laws intact because they were passed by large margins. A veto of
the whole budget would bring Legislators back before July 1 in a
session many members believe would turn into an override session. It
takes a two-thirds vote of both Houses to override a veto, but most of
the bills passed exceeded the needed two-thirds mInajority.

NURSING BILLS RISE: Health Care Administration officials say the
bill for a year's stay in a Florida nursing home has climbed to $36,000
in a semi-private room, up 5.3 percent. The average daily charge went
from $94 to $99.
SEA TROUT HEARINGS: Public hearings have been approved by
the Florida Marine Fisheries Commission on a proposal to relieve stress
on the spotted sea trout population with a set of new regulations which
ultimately will have to be approved by the Florida Cabinet.
Dates for the public hearings have not as yet been adopted. The
proposed new rules would:
Ban harvesting in January and February from the Pinellas-Pasco
county line to the Florida-Alabama border, and in November and
December in other state waters.
Require daily recreational bag limits of 8, trout on the coastal
stretch from the Pinellas-Pasco line to the Florida Alabama border and
5 trout elsewhere.
Set 15-inch minimum and 20-inch maximum size allowing only
one fish longer than 20 inches daily.
Allow commercial harvest and sale of sea trout in June, July and
August only, with a 50-fish daily limit, and ban harvesting with gill
DRUG SWEEP: A statewide drug sweep similar to one earlier this
year aimed at dead beat parents who owed child support resulted in
the arrest of 1,860 people, seizure of $521,360 in cash and drugs with
a street value estimated at more than $28 million.
The task force was coordinated by Leon County Sheriff Eddie. Boone
and Pinellas County Sheriffs Sgt. Bob Diemer.
The two-day bust nabbed 689 pounds of cocaine; 4 pounds of crack
cocaine; 2,482 pounds of Marijuana; and 3 grams of heroin and other
Boone said the task force was already organizing its next statewide
effort, but.he didn't mention the target.

Medicare, and strong majorities
of all age groups oppose major
cuts to the program to balance
the federal budget by the year

An analysis prepared by
AARP this May showed that Indi-

Medicare beneficiaries could in-
crease by $3,500 over the next
seven years under the House
The time frame of the pro-
posed cuts also concerns most
"Most don't understand the'
rationale of a seven year dead-
line," Rother said. "More than
three-quarters of those polled
wondered, 'Why the hurry?' and
prefer a longer-range plan. We be-

lawmakers should address."
"Medicare is an important
program for the family, not just
the elderly," commented Rother.
"It keeps beneficiaries indepen-
dent so young families don't have
to shoulder the bills of their par-
ents and grandparents. And, be-
cause of this, it's a program most
people want protected."
