Scallop season kicked off
Saturday, July 1, and it looked like From Crystal 1

lop season has traditionally been ..bied the Commi
one of the biggest tourist attrac- from the osing
tions for Gulf County as vacation- 'fr1 the losing
ers travel from all over the south- '^ "
eastern United States to enjoy the
activity.
TWO MONTH, SEASON
July 1 marks the opening of the two month season w
runs through August 31st, along the Northwest Florida
Coast. Scalloping is allowed north and west of the Suwan
River to the Alabama state line with no scallop season
where in the state.
Florida's Marine Fisheries Commission came within a
winkle shell of prohibiting all harvesting of bay scallops
year; noting that from Crystal River south scallops have bec
extremely scarce in the state. But that wasn't the case in
western section of the state as representatives from Gulf
several other Gulf Coast counties lobbied the Commission s
ing an exemption from the closing of the season.
The group asked the Commission to 'consider the econc
impact which closing the scallop season, would have on
area, according- to Tamara Laine, Gulf County Chambe
Com-merce Executive Director. Laine said they reasoned
the Marine Fisheries Commission noting that their studies i
-cating-South Florida's scallop scarcity was not a reflectio
how things were in the western section of the state.

of the season.


SA reprieve was won, but har-
vesterg need to be aware of new
bag limits and rules which accom-
panied the decision before they
decide to harvest the shellfish.
Scallopers are now limited to
two gallons per person (unshuck-
ed) or 10 gallons per vessel
(whichever is less). If shucked,
liiifts are one pint per person or
five pints per boat (whichever is


n t f, less).
Anyone who is required to
have a license to fish in saltwater is also required to have a per-
b mit to harvest scallops according to Captain Mike Sweet of the
which Florida Marine Patrol.
Gulf -The only exception to the license requirement is if you are a
nnee Florida resident wading in hot more than four feet of water and
else- are not using any type of breathing device (including snorkle) to
aid in locating the scallops. It should be noted that if you use a
peri- boat to get where you are scalloping, you must have a saltwa-
last ter fishing license regardless of the technique being used.

Sthe If purchased through the county's Tax Collector's office
and Florida residents can expect to pay $13 for a one-year saltwa-
eek- ter fishing license or they can pay $11 for a 10-day permit.
Non-residents can purchase a three-day license for $6, a seven-
)mic day license for $16 or an annual license for $31. Licenses pur-

with Donna and Ashley Sander, owners of Presnell's Bayside
ndi- Marina, reported to The Star, "that while the scallop shells were
n of a little small right now, the meat was full and there are plenty
of them-the most in several years."


Mitch Burke' of Woodbury, Tennessee, trudges through
the grass flats at the end of St. Joseph's Bay with his bag of
scallops taken on opening day.


A last minute effort to secure
a legal block to the impending
Net-Ban constitutional amend-
ment brought commercial fisher-
men's hopes to a screeching halt
last Thursday afternoon when
Judge Phil Podovano of Tallahas-"
see, ruled against the injunction.
The desired injunction was
the' last [although temporary]
hope the fishermen had to keep
fishing as usual. Judge Podova-
no's ruling stated the fishing in-
terests failed to show they had no
other recourse through the courts
to file objections to the constitu-
tional amendment.
Another attempted legal ma-
neuver in Gulf County had -been
met with rejection by Bay County
Judge Thomas Ellinor, when the
,,county sought to-have a license
granted, allowing the county to
continue net fishing for the ex-
empted "government purposes."
Judge Ellinor denied the in-
junction, but referred the matter
to a Tallahassee court for further
hearing. The matter still is to be


heard by the courts in Tallahas-
see. Judge Ellinor reasoned that
his granting of the injunction
would allow other counties in
Florida the same relief and effec-
tively make the net-ban amend-
ment worthless.
NO VIOLATIONS IN GULF
Captain .Mike Sweet of the
Florida Marine Patrol said there
have been no confrontations in
Gulf County between the Marine
Patrol and fishermnnen trying to
use their nets.
The FMP was out in force at
each entrance to St. Joseph Bay
over the weekend to prevent the
illegal use of nets. Marine Patrol
officers were out in force through-
out the state, but reported rela-
tive calm among the commercial
industry, state-wide. Less than a
half dozen cases of defiance of the
law had been reported early this
week.
Gene Raffield, of Raffield's
Fisheries in Port St. Joe, told The
(See NETS on Page 3)


Scallops began attracting large amounts of campers and
sportsmen as the scallop season opened July 1. Boats are


shown above being launched at Presnell's into St. Joseph's
Bay, one of only a few areas open to scallop collection.


Gulf Loses Out as Location for $250 Million Industry; 100 Jobs


Gulf County's hopes for land-
ing a $250 million industry .
employing approximately 100
people were dashed Friday when
the company ,notified Tamara
Laine, Gulf County Chamber
Director, .that Gulf County had


been excluded as a possible site.
Laine said ,she was notified
Friday of the firm's decision.
'"They said Gulf County and the
state presented a very enticing
package ($40 million economic


incentive plan) and were very pro-
fessional but we didn't make the
final list," Laine reported.
The company cited power cost
as their number one reason for
eliminating Gulf County, noting


that Florida's average power costs
were higher'than other states they
were looking at as prospective
sites. Costs for transporting raw
materials and land cost, also
entered into the picture according
to Laine.


Helen Kilbourn of Port St. Joe and her sister, Thelma
Blomquist of Carrabelle, sit on the shoreline to watch the
show.


Fireworks!

Pleased Crowds Witness Annual
Shows, Entertainment In County
Fireworks continue to be the most popular attraction all over
Gulf County as unprecedented crowds showed up In Port St. Joe
and along Wewahitchka's Lake Alice Tuesday night to witness
their pyrotechnic displays. Celebrations of the Fourth were
sponsored in both communities by the Individual cities and mer-
chants to provide entertainment for all of Gulf County.
Perfect weather prevailed for both showings.
Here in Port St. Joe, as usual, cars were parked out beyond
the city limits along the shores of St. Joseph's Bay in order to
view the colorful spectacle which was presented by the Volunteer
Fire Department. Prior to the fireworks display Frank Pate Park
was the scene of several kids games and contests as well as sev-
eral food booths.
In Wewahitchka crowds began to gather early for the pre-
show entertainment and games before the evening's "piece de
resistance" at dark and stayed on to enjoy a huge street dance
following.
Fireworks presentations in both communities have continued
to attract ever larger crowds year after year.


The bombs burst in air Tuesday night for nearly an hour
as fireworks were the feature of the evening.

Sewer Service

Mexico Beach Needs to Find Solution

Before Agencies Do It For Them

I FOR SEVERAL YEARS, now, the City of Mexico Beach has
pondered how they could come up with a sewage collection and
treatment system to serve their community. They can't seem to
come to any unified agreement, however. In the past the com-
munity has tried to get someone else to pay for their system-
grants, if you please. Mexico Beach is too affluent to be a good
first-class grant recipient. It seems as if they had better resign
themselves to paying for their system themselves.
It doesn't get any cheaper to build as time goes by, either.
We would guess that a sewer system today would cost three
times what it would 10 years ago, to serve Mexico Beach.
MEXICO BEACH IS getting large enough to need a sewage
collection and treatment- system. We remember what the EPA
did to Lynn Haven a few short years ago. They decreed there
would be no more building in that community unless they could
supply adequate sewage collection and treatment without over-
loading their current system. Mexico Beach relies on septic
tanks. How long can it be before the community is too densely
settled to depend on septic tanks? Remember Mr. Baxter's battle
to secure adequate sewage treatment for his motel?
Septic tank sewage systems are getting harder and harder
anywhere, much .less in a beachfront area. Mexico Beach can't
afford to pollute the beach. It is their economic life blood! We
don't see EPA nor DER allowing them to pollute their beaches
long before they feel, themselves, they have arrived at that point.
In other words, it.may be sooner than they think before either of
the agencies comes in and says, 'You shall!"
WE KNOW THE detractors of the latest sewage collection
proposal have the best interests of the people and their pocket-
books at. heart. But we know the Mayor of Mexico :Beach as a
fine Christian man with a good business sense. We. don't believe
he would accept a deal-no matter how much it is needed-
without getting the City's money's worth. .Mexico Beach does
need sewer service. It is costing more every day riot to have it
and could be devastating in the future if its acquirement is put
off for very much longer.
We say, give the guy a chance, at least. Let him explore this
deal. Trust him until he proves you can't.
On the surface, the deal looks good to us. If the City of Mexi-
co Beach can get a central sewer system and leave the respons-
bility of having to deal with EPA and DEP for the operation of the
treatment plant, that's almost like having your cake and eating
it too!


Needed Help

THE GOOD GRACES of the people of Gulf County don't ap-
pear to mean' much to the people of Bay County; especially the
Bay County Commission. That body seems to disregard the fact
that we are neighbors. They seem to disregard the' sizable .eco-
nomic impact' the people of Gulf County have on Bay.:, In fact
they seem to disregard Gulf County and what its people are at-
tempting to do, entirely, at times.
Bay could have been a tremendous help to little Gulf County
two weeks ago, by merely assenting to the fact that they stood
by us in our attempt to create an area which allows net fishing
for governmental purposes., They could have declared themselves
a part and party to that section of the Constitutional Amend-
ment which allows such activity.
BAY COULD HAVE done that and given more clout to Gulf
in its attempt to keep its fishermen working; but it didn't! In-
stead, their leaders elected to take await and see attitude-wait
and see whether or not Gulf County would succeed and then
jump on the bandwagon. Bay could have supplied a little loc6-
motionpower to that bandwagon, merely by their acquiescence
to the plan, if they only would.
Tiny Gulf County against the .state of Florida is pretty une-
ven odds. Bay County is a pretty populous place with a number
of powerful people throughout the state. It is not without its in-
fluence. Why didn't it lend us that influence? Could it have been
they were thinking of their sizable sports fishing industry with
dollars in their eyes? Isn't this the source of Gulf County's prob-
lems with the rape called a net ban, in the first place?
WE KNOW IT'S AN uneven trade of influence, but for what
it's worth, Gulf County has always supported Bay County in its
dealings with,the state of Florida. What's to keep.Bay County
from reciprocating in our behalf?

The Funn3
FOR SEVERAL YEARS, now,
people have asked me when we're
going to put a comic strip in the
paper. I guess it is to give them a.
little literary stimulation or an al-
5ternative to reading even in
The Star.
My answer had always been
the same; we found it hard to find
decent comic strips, which weren't
drawn for daily newspapers, to
publish. Either there wasn't
enough literary stimulation, or
there was too much!
Too much is worse than not
enough.
Even the daily papers are

:and mofey.


The Two C's Task Force
(County/City) is continuing to
apply pressure to users and dis-
tributors of drugs in Gulf County.

Charged with Sexual Battery/
Burglary and Grand Theft Auto
The Gulf County Sheriffs
Department reported that Scotty
iMesser, also known as Scotty
Aman, was arrested in Wewa-
ihitchka Sunday morning and
charged with sexual battery, bur-
glary and grand theft auto.
.The arrest report Indicates
that at approximately 4:00 Sun-
day morning a residence in the
Wewahitchka area was forcibly
entered by Messer. The victim,
who was lying on a couch in the
. living room, *was choked and
dragged into a bedroom. During
the rape attempt she managed to
scream and awaken her son.
Upon hearing the son in the
house, the suspect fled the scene,
entering a wooded area adjacent
to the house.
The suspect was located in a
wooded area near Harden Circle
by Gulf County officers at 6:59
Sunday morning.
Messer was lodged in the Gulf
County Jail under a $10,000
bond following his arrest.


Nets
from page 3
Star, 'That doesn't mean we ap-
prove of the law; we don't like it
worth a darn, but we're willing to
wait for a while until the courts
can consider the matter."
The courts will not likely con-
sider the claims of an unconstitu-
tional status for the net-ban law
for another 60 days. The matters
decided last week, asked for tem-
porary injunctions against vari-
ous applications of the ban, all of
which were denied.
r Raffileld said the state's claim
that the fishermen can still fish
but just not along the shoreline,
rebutted the premise by stating.
'The only place you can catch
mullet, trout, mackerel and sever-
al other species is within about
two miles of the shoreline and the
species comprise the bulk of our
.Industry here along the Panhan-
dle."
SHRIMP FISHERMEN
The shrimp fishermen won
their attempt at installing the use
"-of a special net in court last week
and were able to continue fishing
under the new rules.
Port St. Joe attorney Pat
Floyd was successful in convinc-
ing the Cabinet of Florida last
Tuesday. that a net designed by
East Point net maker Buford
Golden, measured less than the
required 500 square feet, spelled
out in the new law.
The Cabinet approved a
shrimp net with a 60 foot opening
and approved the length of the
net designed by Golden.
NOT OVER YETI
Meanwhile the commercial
fishermen have vowed to peace-
fully fight the net-ban ruling,
through the courts to the very
end.

by Roy Lee Carter.
County Extension Director
On warm evenings y6ou may
have noticed some strange, look-
ing, six-legged critters crawling
around beneath nearby street
lamps. Because of their odd ap-
pearance, you've probably tried. to
avoid these insects. Actually you
had nothing to fear. They're
harmless to humans. But, they
can be lethal to your lawn. I'm,
talking about mole crickets:
Mole crickets live in the soil
and feed on plant roots, Their
front legs are short and stout--
well adapted for tunneling. Their
velvety skin is light brown, and
the adults which reach a. length
of about one and a half inches,
have prominent wings folded over
their back.
Each spring, mole crickets
lay in the soil. The nymphs,
which hatch in about two weeks,
look like the adults, except
they're smaller and lack fully- de-
veloped wings. These nymphs
mature very gradually, reaching


adulthood the following spring.
Thus, there Is qnly onge genera-
tion per year.
Although mole crickets live
mostly below ground, the adults
are readily attracted to lights-
especially in the spring and
throughout the summer. At these
times, they're commonly found
under street lamps, electric signs,
and similar illumination.
Mole crickets are most active
at night, especially after a rain or
irrigation, and when the tempera-
ture is about 70 degrees fahren-
heit. Under these conditions, they
make burrows in the upper inch
or two of the soil. And, occasion-
ally, they'll partially emerge to
gather bits of food. These surface
burrows, which range from about
one-eighth to three-quarters of an
inch in diameter, look like minia-
ture mole runs. This burrowing
loosens the soil, causing plants to
dry out. however,, the most seri-
ous damage Is cause by the crick-
ets feeding on the roots of lawn

Wear Life Jackets


Help .Sav
Florida has led the nation or
been near the top in terms of
boating accidents and fatalities
since the late 1980s. During
1994 alone, 74 boating deaths
were recorded and 1,191 boating
accidents Investigated.
During the summer and holi-
day seasons. the Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion Is urging boaters to use cau-
tion and wear their life jackets.,
"We have found that many of
our recreational boaters are in
compliance, in terms of the re-
quired safely equipment," said Lt.
Gary Applewhite. the Commis-
sion's boating safety coordinator
in Panama City. "However, we
strongly encourage the boating
public'to go beyond the minimum
safety equipment requirement
and wear their personal flotation
devices, or life jackets, at least
while the boat is underway.
"If you are involved in an ac-
cident, or are thrown or fall from
the vessel, wearing your personal
flotation device might save your
life."
Applewhite said. roughly 80%
of the people who die in boating
accidents perish as a result of
drowning. Florida law requires
only that children under age six
wear a life jacket while a vessel is
moving.
He said many accidents could

trolled; by either sprays or baits.
Apply sprays or baits when the
overnight temperature is expected
to be 70 degrees fahrenheit or
higher, and be sure the soil is
moisLt. If necessary, sprinkle the
area for about an hour before ap-
plication. Moisture aids soil pene-
tration of sprays. and with baits,
it attracts the mole crickets to the
surface to feed.
To insure even pesticide cov-
erage; it's best to treat no more


than 500 square feet at a time.
Mark off the area to be covered,
and apply half the recommended
amount evenly, back and forth in
one direction. Then, turn at right
angles and apply the rest. After
spraying, irrigate for about 40-60
minutes. But, do not water after
applying baits.
Baits are most effective when
the fast-growing nymphs need a
lot of food-from late June
through September. But, the
sooner baits are applied after the
damage is noticed, the more, effec-
tive they'll be. Baits may be ap-
plied by hand, but be sure to
wear rubber gloves. For sprays, a
garden hose attachment applica-
tor is recommended-one that re-
quires 15 to 20 gallons of water
passing through the hose to emp-
ty a quart Jar.
For specific pesticide recom-
mendations, check with your gar-
.den center or County Extension
Office.

Frt Union Corp., First Fidelity Bancorp, Join in Giant Merger


First Union Corp. will buy First
Fidelity Bancorp. for $5.4 billion in
a record deal that will create a
banking behemoth with offices
stretching from Connecticut to the
Florida Keys.
The all-stock transaction, an-
nounced Monday, represents the
largest marriage of two American
banks and creates the largest con-
tiguous network of bank branches
in the country, bank executives
said.
Bank executives said the com-
bined bank will seek to get even
bigger in' the Northeast by acquiring
community'banks and would even
consider expanding into Boston,
home to several large New England
banking companies.
Customers of First Union Bank,
Port St. Joe, will see no evidence of
the giant merger reflected in,the op-
eration of the Port St. Joe office, ac-
cording to Gil Williams, city presi-
dent.
"We have'opportunities for fur-
ther in-market 'transactions," said
Anthony Terracciano, chairman and
chief executive of First Fedelity. Ter-
rancciano becomes president of
First Union and will run the bank's

America's space program has
funded a $2,000 grant to the Gulf
County Chamber to assist in its
efforts to further economic devel-
opment. The support is being pro-
vided through a new, jointly fund-
ed cooperative agreement
between NASA-Kennedy Space
Center and the Florida Technol
logical Research and Develop-
inent Authority (TRDA).
The fundiAg is designed to
promote use of NASA technology
to solve the technical problems of
businesses of all sizes through a
grassroots Technology Outreach-
Program.
"Every Gulf County business
with a technical problem now has
access to up to 40 hours of .no-
cost consulting services by NASA
scientists and engineers." said
Gulf County Chamber Executive
Director, Tamara Laine. She cited
examples of how NASA has solved
problems in the dairy industry,
.I aquaculture, printing business
and. construction industry to
demonstrate the wide "range of
space technology applications.
The main purpose of the pro-
gram is to expand commercially
viable technologies from NASA-

help local businesses resolve
their technological problems at
no expense to the companies.

Each scholarship student saves

house fifteen to twenty students live

division.
The new bank, to be called First
Union, .Wrould hold combined, assets
of $123.7 billion. That would make
it the sixth largest banking compa-
ny, displacing New York's Chase
Manhattan Corp., which holds as-
sets of $120.72 billion.
The combination will create a
bank with 10.5 million customers


through 2,000 offices in 12 states
along the east coast from Florida to
Connecticut.
Under the terms, First Union
has agreed to exchange 1.35 shares
of its common stock for each share
of First Fidelity's common stock.
Based- on First Union's closing
stock price of $47.625 on Friday,
June 16, the transaction would be
worth $64.29 for each share of First
Fidelity common stock, or about
$5.4 billion. The deal is expected to
close by the end of this year, subject
to the approval of regulators and


shareholders.
Both First Union, the nation's
ninth largest banking company, and
First Fidelity, which ranks 25th,
have been active acquirers, captur-
ing dominant positions in their re-
gions.
By expanding north into the
Middle Atlantic, First Union, based
in Charlotte, North Carolina, is tap-
ping into one of the wealthiest con-
sumer markets in the country and
gaining access to thousands of
! small and medium-sized businesses
that bank with First Fidelity.


Thirty-five percent of the na-
tion's wealthiest people live in the
Middle Atlantic and Southeastern
regions and 35 percent of all medi-
um-sized 'businesses are headquar-
tered there, bankers said.
First Union, which primarily ca-
ters to consumers but has also built
a respectable corporate business,
plans to offer First Fidelity custom-
ers everything from loans to mutual
funds to exotic derivative securities,
said Edward Crutchfield, chairman
and chief executive.
"We will gain substantial new


S


fee income" from marketing First
Union products, Crutchfield told a
news conference in New York.
Analysts said the deal makes
sense because the two banks oper-
ate in neighboring regions and cater
to similar types of customers. But
with little overlap in branch net-
works, cutting costs-which is often
the main reason banks merge-
won't be easy.
"They have their work cut out
for them," said David Berry, head of
research at Keefe Bruyette & Woods,
Inc., a New York investment firm.

Has A


Cure For


Arthritis

(All Three Types
Cause Severe Pain)


A cure for arthritis? Nobody
except one bothered by the crip-
pling disease, could hope so fer-
vently for such a cure. Mark Pow-
ell, speaker for the Kiwanis Club
meeting last week, began his pro-
ogram by telling his listeners he
had such a cure.
'The cure is in replaced
joints," he said.
There are basically three
kinds of arthritis, the speaker
said. They are degenerative, rheu-
matoid and traumatic arthritis.
The "degerative" type results
from the wearing out of joints and
accounts for about 85% of the
cases. "A worn out joint results in
bone working against bone and
there is nothing more painful,"
Powell said.

on the job says, the work will be complete
in just a short while, "if the. weather w

"Rheumatoid" arthritis is a
progressive disease by which car-
tilage is eaten away, causing the
same excruciating pain," the
speaker continued.
'Traumatic" arthritis results
from a break, a torn cartilage, or
some other traumatic injury to
the bone.
"All can be treated temporari-
ly by your doctor with medica-
tion," Powell said. He showed the
club several X-rays taken of ar-
thritic joints.
Powell showed several "after"
X-rays, also, where patients had
been fitted with new joints-hip,
and knee. "Joint replacement is
highly successful today," lie said.

ately. Knee joints require a short


I Sen. Thomas

Gets Good

' Ranking
'-"- Senator Pat Thomas (D-
Quincy) received a 100 percent
ranking from Associated Indus-
tries of Florida based on his votes
during the recently completely
regular session of the Legislation.
Associated Industries of Flori-
da based its rankings on votes
cast by senators on 51 bills dur-
ing the 1995 Legislative Session.
The business group's ratings dif-
fer from some other vote studies
. in that they are not based solely
on votes taken on the Senate
floor. Votes taken in committee
and on key amendments were
also factored into the overall
^ score.
WA "I'm pleased to have received

he said.
Powell was a medical supply
salesman for suppliers of the
prosthetic devices, and said the
medical profession was having
great success with them.
'The replacements last from
15 to 20 years, giving pain-free
activity," the speaker said. "Some
are put in with glue and some are
merely fitted to the patient. All
are as near custom fitted to each
patient as a replacement can be,"
he said.
He said the replacements are
made of materials which are long-
lasting and not rejected by the
body.

As a new chicken pox vaccine
becomes available across the

(MMR) inoculations and the
chicken pox vaccine.
"Right now the chicken pox
vaccine is usually given on the
same day as the MMR, but It has
to be given as a separate shot,"
said Dr. Peter Reuman, associate
professor in pediatric infectious
diseases at the University of Flori-
da College of Medicine.
"I hope that within two years
the Food and Drug Administra-
tion will approve a mixture of the
measles, mumps, rubella and
chicken pox vaccine. When that
happens I expect the combined
shot will be used In preference to
the two separate shots children
receive now."
Reuman and other research-
ers at the' UF College of Medicine
were part of .the 'chicken pox vac-
cine clinical trials, which began
in the late 1980's and resulted in
the inoculation of some 9,000
children. In addition to testing
the safety and effectiveness of the
vaccine, the researchers deter-
mined the chicken pox immuniza-
tion should be given at the same
time as the MMR, usually to chil-
dren between the ages of 12
months and 18 months.
Chicken pox, the last remain-
ing major childhood disease, in-
fects about 3.5 million Americans
each year, primarily children be-
tween the ages of five and nine. ,
Additionally, it costs the na-
tion more than $400 million an-
nually, according to the Centers
for Disease Control inAtlanta.
"If you have a single mother


with five children and one child
comes down with chicken pox,,
the mother either has to take off
work or. hire a baby sitter. When'
one child comes down with chick-
en pox, two weeks later 'another
one comes down with it and then
other cases may follow. A mother'
in such a family is literally out of
work or paying for a babysitter
for a month or more," said Reu-
man, who headed the UF portion
of the vaccine's clinical trials.
Although generally a compli-'
cation-free disease, about 100
children die from chicken pox
each year and approximately
9,000 are hospitalized. These
numbers are even higher when
an adult is infected .
"A child who gets chicken pox
in most cases will get a mild case.
An adult, however, has a 30
times higher death rate," Reuman
said.
Almost 20 percent of adults,
mostly southerners, have never
had chicken pox. Although re-'
searchers do not know why, the'
virus does not appear to transmit,
from person to person as easily in
southern states.
"Perhaps it's because of our
warm, humid environment, we
really don't know why. Adults
who don't remember having'
chicken pox should check with
their physician. The physician
might draw blood to see if anti-
bodies in the blood indicate
they've had the disease and are
therefore immune to future infec-
tions. Or they might just recom-
mend getting the vaccine,"

Special Sessions On


Health Care Likely


to be Blood Letting

Two Special Sessions Have Good

Chance of Being In the Future
SPECIAL SESSION READY OR NOT
Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles says he is going to call lawmakers into a
special session on health care in July and maybe on education in August
in spite of a promise last year he wouldn't call them back again without
a consensus on the issue first
Some consensus.
The comments came a day after Republican Senate President Jim
Scott said a special session would be a considerable waste of money and
, time because Republicans will not act on Chiles' subsidized health Insur-
ance plan.
"I'll not allow Scott to make a unilateral decision that should be made
by all .160 state legislators," Chiles said.
Chiles wants lawmakers to approve a federal waiver that would allow
the state to divert Medicaid. money into a plan to help subsidize health
insurance for as many as 1.1 million working poor who are not now cov-
ered.
He wants the approval, before Congress caps Medicaid spending and
begins sending payments to the states in the form of block grants.
Scott-after meeting with U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole and
House Speaker Newt Gingrich in Washington-said he was told Congress
has no intention of grandfatheringg in" any Medicaid waivers for Florida.
The Florida Legislature has rejected Chiles' plan twice in 1994 and
again in the regular session this year.
Of course, those familiar with Florida's "he-coon" governor's habit of
getting his way aren't surprised. He is out to prove his relevancy as the
only big-state tax-and-spend Democratic governor to win in the November
elections and saving public time and money isn't one of his long suits.
After all, he got a law passed that gave him $5 million in taxpayer
money to run his last political campaign, he created a job for one of his
Gainesville rancher buddies to be his "agriculture affairs advisor" and he
gave Health and Rehabilitative Secretary Jim Towey another cushy state
job after he was ousted by the senate on grounds he was a poor manag-
er.
You don't think the estimated $40,000 a day it is estimated taxpay-
ers will pay for a special session will even make him pause for a second?
What taxpayers and Republicans had better worry about is: what is
he really up to this time? You can be sure it's not just health care. Tax
reform-make: that tax increase-is one of his long-term objectives. He
says he has given up on getting it out of the Legislature and is planning
to take it to the voters in a constitutional amendment in 1996, something
like the successful fish net ban that environmentalists pulled off in 1994.
So. We're going to have maybe two special sessions this year. Hang
onto your hats folks. Anything can happen.
WHAT COMMERCIAL FISHING INDUSTRY?
Perhaps, the most ludicrous, quote of the day at the cabinet meeting
Tuesday came after the Department of Environmental "scientists" came
up with a $1.93 billion damage figure for.an oil leak scenario forecast on
exploratory d-illing for oil in the Gulf pf Mexico.
Only an environmental "scientist" (the same folk who predicted the
earth was freezing 40 years ago and is warming today) could come up
with such a figure, but it was.welcomed by cabinet members wanting to
take a popular stand against oil leases. They immediately set a $1.9 bil-
lion bond for Coastal Petroleum to put up before they will be allowed to
drill on a lease they have on Gulf floor bottom-land off Apalachicola.
"How much damage would it do to the commercial fishing industry?"
asked Atty. Gen. Bob Butterworth.
'What commercial fishing industry?" came the quote from fishermen
in the audience who oppose the fish net ban they contend is going to put
- therrdw t of work .... .. .. ..
Here's the Capitol News Round-up
Florida's commercial fishermen won a compromise on the shape of
trawling nets that shrimpers can live with, but Circuit Judge Phil
Padovano refused them a temporary injunction on the state-wide ban on
gill nets in coastal waters that became effective July 1.
The compromise on net sizes for shrimpers came at the Florida
Cabinet meeting when Gov. Lawton Chiles assured some 50 fishermen in
the audience he was instructing the Florida Marine Patrol to not consid-
er the length of shrimp nets In enforcing the emergency rules adopted by
the cabinet.
The length of the shrimp nets is the controversy between shrimpers
and the Florida Marine Commission.
Judge Padovano told commercial fishermen there was no doubt the
net ban will adversely affect commercial fishermen and many others'
depending on the fishing industry, but the voters evidently reasoned the
ultimate harm would be far greater if they did not take some action to
protect the state's marine resources.
'The democratic process has taken its course and all citizens must
now accept the results," Padovano said in his ruling.
The case isn't over. Padovano only took arguments on a temporary
injunction. A full-blown hearing on whether the amendment is unconsti-
tutional will be held later.
Commercial fishermen were also hoping to continue to fish under a
clause in the amendment adopted by the voters last year that allows fish-
ing for "scientific research or for a government purpose."
Several counties had declared continued netting was a government
purpose to them, mainly to keep their citizens working in the seafood
industry.
MINOR SEX NOT RAPE: The Florida Supreme Court ruled privacy
rights for minors 16 and under prevented them from being charged with
statutory rape in a. consensual sexual situation, but an adult can still be
charged for having sex with a minor under any circumstance.
"All the ruling does," Justice Charles Wells wrote, "is prevent a 16-
year-old having sex with another 16-year-old from being charged with a
felony."
LOBBYIST CONVICTED: A lobbyist who once represented Walt
Disney World was convicted in federal court in Tallahassee on five counts
of cheating on his taxes by failing to report about $300,000 on his
income.
n Bernie Parrish, 52, argued he never intended to cheat the govern-
ment, but he just forgot to report all of his taxes because he was not "a
detail man."
He faces 15 years at sentencing set for Sept 15. His attorney also
said he will appeal the jury's verdict..
OOPSI OIL DRILLING OK'D? As Florida's cabinet set a whopping
$1.9 billion bond for one company to drill in the Gulf of Mexico, the U. S.
Department of Commerce last week approved a request by Mobile Oil to
drill an exploratory oil and gas well 13.5 miles off Pensacola.
Commerce Secretary Ron Brown distributed the ruling last week as

ROUND-UP
by Jack Harper


U. S. Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt toured Florida and a week after
President Clinton vowed to block offshore drilling along Florida's coast-
line.
Florida Republican Sen. Connie Mack noted the commerce ruling and
said it wasn't unusual for the Clinton administration to say one thing and
do another.
He pledged that Florida leaders in Congress which include Democrat
Sen. Bob Graham will continue to fight drilling in waters off the state's
coast.


Parker Returns
From Mediterranean
Navy Ensign Gregory L. Park-
er, son of Bruce L. and Sharon J.
Parker of Port St. Joe, recently re-
turned to Norfolk, Virginia, from
a six-month overseas deployment
to the. Mediterranean Sea with
the destroyer tender USS She-
inandoah..
Parker was one of 1,528 sail-
tors aboard the ship who complet-
ed the 11,000-mile voyage which
began in late November.
1 Parker's ship served as a
! floating repair facility for forward
deployed U.S. Navy surface ships.
duringg the deployment, Parker
rand fellow shipmates used a wide
assortment of high-tech skills to.
'repair electronic equipment, re-.
;wind, electric motors,. and weld
exotic metals. Parker's ship also
'is equipped with machine shops
and even has a foundry for mak-
ing parts.
Parker's ship repaired 17
ships that were berthed along
side or at anchor during the trip.
Fly-away teams from USS She-
nandoah also repaired several
ships moored in other countries
as well. During the deployment,
crew members also participated


in a mock civilian evacuation ex-
ercise, in which Shenandoah sail-
ors volunteered to be rescued.
While spending 48 days at
'sea, Parker also visited Crete, Cy-
prus, Israel, Italy, Sardinia, Sicily
and Spain. During a tour to
Rome, Shenandoah crew mem-
bers attended a Papal Audience
at St. Peter's Basilica. Another
highlight occurred when about a
dozen crew members were bap-
tized in the Jordan River during a
port visit to Haifa, Israel.
Parker's involvement in the
deployment reflects the Navy-
Marine Corps team's unique ca-
' ability of being able to conduct
air, ground and logistics opera-
tions supported entirely by ships
at sea-a critical option in re-
gions where access to land bases
is limited or does not exist.
The 1987 graduate of Port St.
Joe High School joined the Navy.
in May, 1994.

Best selling author, Stephen
Covey, refers to the "principle of
the farm" in many of his books.
The principle is simple, yet pro-
found. You never see a good farm-
er sitting around. If he is not
planting, he is getting ready, toil-
ing, tending,. and tilling. He must
wait for the right season to plant
and must eagerly anticipate the
harvest, but he is persistent, pa-
tient, and forever busy. You don't
just decide one day to have a crop
and run out and plant one. If you
do, don't expect much. Yet, this is
how so many of us manage our
time and our lives. The tyranny of
the urgent takes its toll.
Covey compares the farm
principle to the exam principle.
Remember those guys who never
studied until the night before the
test. They crammed, passed, by
the skin of their teeth. They re-
ceived their degree, but didn't get
much of an. education. Many of"
us live by this principle, forever
moving from one crisis to another
with little direction and purpose.

5-Day Clubs
Are Coming!
Children in the area between
the ages of five and 12 years are
invited to come and join in the
fun and fellowship that a 5-Day
Club has to offer.
A 5-Day Club is a children's
Bible club that is held for one
,hour each day, for five consecu-
tive days. Each day the boys and
girls are taught a visualized Bible
lesson, memory verse, songs and'
continued missionary-story. ,,The
entire hour's 'teaching is built
around the spiritual needs of the
children. The clubs are taught by
trained teenagers who have dedi-
cated their summer months to
reaching children as Summer
Missionaries with C.E.F.
Child Evangelism Fellowship
(C.E.F.) is an international, Inter-
denominational faith work dedi-
cated to winning boys and girls to
Christ.
In Port St. Joe, the 5-Day
Clubs will be held Monday
through Friday, July 10-14 at
the following locations:
The home of Tom & Dawne
Ford, 100 SLt. Joseph Drive, Port
St. Joe, 9:00 10:30 a.m.
Beach Baptist Chapel, Port
St. Joe Beach, 10:30 11:30 a.m.
The home of Fred & Brenda
Goebert, 909 20th Street, Port St.
Joe, 1:00 2:00 p.m.
The home of Buddy &
Rhonda Caswell, 2101 Juniper
Avenue, Port St. Joe, 3:00 4:00.
Children are welcome to at-
tend the club of their choice


S308 Williams Ave.


-Covey rightly points out that the
principle of the farm applies even
in school. Study a little every day
and you won't have much to do
the night before the test.
True leaders live and lead by
the principle of the farm. The big
question is not what does it mean
today or how much does it cost,
but what will it mean tomorrow
and will it be sufficient for the fu-
ture. Too often Wve over commit,
under plan, and but then quick-
fix and then find that what we
have is not adequate for the
changes and challenges of the fu-
ture. Forward thinking people are
in short supply these days. There
is a crisis, of leadership in our na-
tion.
Covey also uses another pro-
vocative picture about leadership.
Imagine a logging company. You
have workers in the forest,
cutting down trees. You have
foremen (managers) who organize
the crews, making sure they have
.saws that are sharp so the trees
can be cut down efficiently as
possible. Covey says a true leader
can chop wood with the best of
them. He knows the value of or-
ganization and the importance of'
good equipment. But a true lead-
er is in the top of the tallest tree
taking a good look around and
occasionally yells down, "we're in,
the wrong forest."
Is this Biblical? In the Prov-
erbs we read, "Go to the ant, you!
sluggard; consider its ways and
be wise! It has no commander, no
overseer or ruler, yet it stores its
provisions in summer and gath-
ers its food at harvest" (Proverlbs
6:6-8 NIV).
Our nation sure could use
some ants that live on the farm
and in the trees.

Fish Commission has selected
583 persons to participate in this

The Commission uses a com-

This year's hunt, which will
take place at 36 sites across the
state, is divided into two phases.
The first phase is scheduled for

Each trapper is authorized to

completing a three-hour training
session before the season begins.
Participants must purchase a
$250 resident alligator trapping
license or a $1,000 nonresident
license by July 15 or forfeit their
slots to other applicants. The
