In Gulf Co.

Board Hires Medical Director,
Signs 10-Year Pact With A.S.L


Deputy Andrew Gainer, Sheriff Frank McKeithen and
Port St. Joe Police Patrolman Marty Williams survey a mari-
juana "farm" after its discovery Monday afternoon, in the
top photo. In the bottom photo, Sheriff McKeithen is shown
wielding en axe on the plant boxes and platform which were
destroyed by the officers.




Marijuana

"Farm" Located, Destroyed,
In River Slough Monday
Gulf County's Joint Task Force Monday afternoon seized 120
more marijuana plants which were growing several hundred
yards off the Apalachicola River, south of its confluence with the
Chipola River.
The plants, with an estimated street value of $120,000 upon
maturity, were the fruits of a two-month long search of the river
swamps. They were located by Task Force officers during a foot
search of the river's dense undergrowth. Helicopters, boats and
foot searches have been utilized in the hunt for the illegal weed.
I The plants were found growing in 64 bee boxes on a home-
made barge. The barge was constructed of styrofoam blocks with
a wooden platform approximately 16'x20' in dimensions.
Gtlf County Sheriff Frank McKeithen theorized the barge was-.
floated into the river swamps during high water and tied off so
that it would rest on the ground when the water subsided,
remaining in place,. but if the Wvier was to rise the barge would
refloat itself protecting the plants from water damage.
"We know who's growing this and they know we know.
Unfortunately we don't have as much time as they do or the per-
sonnel to wait them out," McKeithen said.
After pulling the plants officers destroyed the bee boxes and
barge being used to cultivate the marijuana.


Child Struck By A Hit and Run Driver Monday


Anna Tankersley, 10-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Danny
Tankersley of Barbara Drive, was
struck by a motorist on Garrison
Avenue, near 18th Street Mon-
day, as she was riding her bicycle
in a northerly direction.
The car was travelling in the


same direction, striking her bicy-
cle from the rear and knocking,
Anna to the ground.

The victim said the driver of
the vehicle stopped, but never got
out of the car. After a moment or
two, the car drove off and Anna


got up and pushed her disabled
bike on to her destination, her
grandmother's home, '10 blocks
away. She suffered only abra-
sions to her right knee, elbow,
hip and cheek.
Police are looking for a full-
size black Chrysler with dark tint-


ed windows in connection with,
the hit-and-run.
Anyone with information con-
cerning the accident is urged to
call Chief Richter at the depart-
ment headquarters, 229-8265.
-The Informant's name will be kept
confidential.


Beginning October Ist it will
cost Gulf County residents $5.00
and, non-residents $35.00 annu-
ally to use the county's right-of-
ways to gain access to, or park
your vehicle on-before, during,
or after launching a boat in Gulf
County.
The Gulf County Commission
has been kicking around for sev-
eral months the feasibility of levy-
ing permit fees to help defray the
cost of maintenance, clean-up
and the establishment of new
boat launching facilities- in the
county.
During Tuesday evening's:
meeting, the Board decided to
draft a county ordinance mandat-
ing the fees proposed by Com-
missioner Billy Traylor. Commis-
sioner Nathan Peters, Jr. voiced
the only objection to the motion
which passed four to one.
..The ordinance will require a
current permit decal to be affixed
to the boat ti-ailers on or around
the wench area. Permits will cost
local ri-esidents; $5.00 and non-
residents $35.00 annually.-
Resident senior citizens, 65
and over, will be exempted from
the permit fees but will still be
required to have a Senior Citizens
permit properly displayed on their-
boat trailer. Failure to properly
display or purchase permits will
carry a $35 fine.
'- HIRES MEDICAL DIRECTOR
The Board unanimously
approved Thomas L. Curry, M.D.
as the Medical Director for South
Gulf County's Ambulance Service.
Gulf County will take over the
operation of South Gulf County's
ambulance service July 31st after
failing to come to terms with Gulf
Pines .Hospital which had been
operating the ,service for the past
several years.
Curry's hiring as Medical
Director was one of the final hur-
dles to be crossed by the Board
before they could qualify for a
license to operate the ambulance
system. A Medical Director is a
must 'for the county to provide
ALS (Advanced Life Support) ser-
vice.
the Board also approved an
Emergency Medical Service per-
sonnel policy as represented by


Chief Administrator Don Butler,
outlining pay rates, shift sched-
ules, and vacation policies for
paramedics, emergency medical
technicians and ambulance dri-
vers to be hired by the Board to
operate the service.
Shane McGuffin was hired as
the Ambulance 'Director for the
service during the board's last
meeting. He will officially start.
work on July 17 operating out of
the county's ambulance building
located on the east side of the
courthouse complex.,

Two Weekend Accidents Cause Heavy Property Damage and Minor Injuries


Two automobile accidents in
the' Port St. Joe vicinity marred
an otherwise perfect weekend.
A sedan and a pick-up truck
collided on the state park road
Thursday, resulting, in only minor
injuries but heavy damages to
both vehicles.
Friday, just after the noon
hour, two more vehicles were in-
volved in a smash up at the inter-
section in front of the post office,
on Monument Avenue, which also


resulted in minor injuries but
considerable property damage.
Thursday evening, at 10:15, a
Ford Taurus, driven by Darlean
Ray of Apalachicola, struck a
parked Toyota pick-up truck near
the Stump Hole on C-30A, ac-
cording to a Florida Highway Pa-
trol report.
The Ford Taurus was east-
bound on the road, when the
driver lost control of her vehicle
and ran off the road on the south


shoulder, striking the pick-up
which was occupied by Jerry
Dean Washington of Bessemer,
Alabama.
Alexis Ray, daughter of Darle-
an Ray, driver of the Taurus, and.
a passenger in the sedan, suf-
fered minor injuries from the
crash. Both vehicles received se-
vere damages.
FRIDAY WRECK
Friday, at about 1:00 p.m.,


another car which was stopped,
was hit by a second vehicle here
in Port St. Joe.
A 1993 Pontiac, driven by
Deborah M. Harvey of Wewa-
hitchka, was stopped at the inter-
section at Second Street and
Monument Avenue, on the inside
lane awaiting an opening in traf-
fic to make a left turn into Sec-
ond Street. Her car was ap-
proached from the rear by a


second vehicle, a 1990 Dodge,
driven by Terry L. Dean of Fort
. Walton Beach.

Dean failed to observe that
the Harvey vehicle was stopped
until she was within 15 or 20 feet
of the sedan. She locked her
brakes and skidded for 15 feet
before striking the Harvey car,
which was pushed for about 153
feet, veering in a southeasterly di-
rection, crossing into the ap-


preaching traffic lane. The vehicle
then coasted into the HRS build-
ing parking lot.
Both drivers were transported
by Gulf County ambulance to the
hospital for treatment and re-
leased. Both vehicles had an esti-
mated total of $15,000 damages
inflicted from the crash.
The accident was investigated
by the Port St. Joe Police Depart-
ment Patrolman Tim Hightower.

Strain at a Gnat Li


THERE IS AN OLD and familiar cliche which aptly describes
man's propensity to major on the minors and leave the majors
be, It goes something like this: "strain at a gnat and swallow a
camel." Kind of silly, isn't it? Sort of a foolish activity, should one
try to do it?
But, today the State of Florida has exactly 12 days under its
belt of doing just that and is working on the 13th. It has been
precisely that long a period of time that Florida has forbidden
the taking of fish with the, assistance of nets, from state waters.
To quote another frequently used cliche which is apropos to
the situation; "ain't that a pretty kettle of fish?" One would an-
swer, "It might be, if we had any way to catch a kettle full!"
THE MARINE PATROL and allied law enforcement officers,
have been ordered to beef up their forces in order to adequately
deal with this situation. One supposes the powers that be in
state government are expecting to have all kinds of trouble from
the commercial fishermen over this matter.
We don't know why they should expect that. Shouldn't every-
body, who has had their livelihood .snatched from under them
and pushed out in the cold, be willing, nay, eager, to obey such
a law humbly and without argument? Isn't that what this great
nation is all about? The only thing which is more palatable is
that the voters didn't get to vote on whether or not they wanted
to get rid of-via a constitutional .amendment-all politicians
who spent money unwisely;. or all liquor; or all automobiles; or
all cigarettes; or maybe even the speed of automobiles on high-
ways.
All of these entities are causing us many times more destruc-
tion and the ultimate waste-unnecessary human deaths-than
fish nets have ever caused us.
REMVIEMBER WHAT INSPIRED the writing of The Star Span-
gled Banner? the. Bostqn Tea Party, or many other revolutionary
actions? It was a ruling by a popular government, passing un-
popular rules which riled the people up so much they kicked the
ones in office out of office. We do it in a more civilized manner.
these days, but we do it just as effectively and just as perma-
nently as the colonists who tossed the tea overboard in Boston
harbor that night long ago.
So continue to enforce a law which deprives honest, hard-
working people of their livelihood and their, sustenance at your
own peril. We wouldn't be in your shoes, expecting a life-time of
soft living for anything.
Like the fishermen who were relying on a historically accept-
able way of supporting their families; you may wake up to being
forced to give up your briefcase one morning.


Horse Trading
PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON'S deal with the Japanese to ac-
cept.more Anierican-made automobiles and parts was welcomed
by the dealers of Japanese automobiles in the U. S., with a more
than fair amount of joy, according to television news the middle
of last week. They were toasting and celebrating the deal with
glee, because it meant they would still be in business today.
The Japanese have agreed to allow Anierican-rimade "prod-
ucts-particularly automobiles-into their market place in ex-
change for a continued unfettered spot in ours. "honest in-
Jun", they will! It'll be tit-for-tat in both nations for the sale of
automobiles. Of course, they didn't say on the news Just what
requirements the Japanese would require of American manufac-
turers in order for them to sell over there.
AS NBC NEWS said Wednesday, there are no guarantees!
This is what bothers us but apparently it doesn't bother the
President, who seems to be banking his next election campaign
on what a hard bargainer he is with the Japanese. If we were
him, we had rather base the success of our next campaign on
getting the vote of the Republicans ... We feel he can depend on
that better!
This isn't to throw mud at the Japanese. They just "out-

Yankee-trader" the genuine article! The Japanese have enjoyed a
one-sided trade arrangement too long. The American buying
public is as much to blame for this situation as the President is .
. even more so.
WE WOULDN'T TRADE with someone who didn't trade with
us for all the tea in China! It just doesn't work that way for very
long. You are required to scratch our back if we take care of the
itch on yours'.
Our nation should be that way, too. The Japanese will accept
such a deal, too. We don't blame them for trying for the whole
loaf, especially if they have been so successful doing business
,that way for so long, and with such a good customer, too!

What Kind of Wife Wouldn't Buy Her HusbandA Cow?


MY OLD BUDDY-and I em-
phasize the word "old" intention-
ally-retired the last day of June.
He just walked away, cold turkey,
from a job he had held for nearly
30 years; He had worked for the
same company more than 30
years and been elevated to his
present position over 25 years
ago.,
He didn't seem to mind retir-
ing deciding to sit back and
.draw his "pennies" after all those
days spent struggling to spend
money at his job.
He was sort of laid back; the
sort who cares what happens but
smart enough to know he can't
do anything to change it, after he
has done the best he can to keep
it from getting all bollixed up.
He has great aspirations of
living the life of Riley, being a
city-dwelling "agriculturist" man-
aging a little plot of dirt he put-
chased several years ago up in
Jackson County. It isn't much


,ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


you know; just big enough for
him to grow a few turnip greens,
a hamper or two of peas and a
few ears of corn, along with may-
be a pig or a cow.

THAT COW HAS become a
bone of contention for my buddy,
Ralph Walton and his wife Betty.
It seems "Old" Ralph, [again, I
use the word "old" with perfect
description as to Ralph's chrono-
logical time spent upon this older
Earth!] "Old" Ralph had man-
aged to get his wife Betty a little
job before he retired. You know
the type; gainfully employed but


not a job which.will make her fee
independent enough to leave,
home and leave the cooking to
Ralph.
Ralph tried-unsuccessfully,
I might add-to talk Betty into
making sure she kept her job'
long enough to buy him a cow for
that Jackson County spread. Well
Betty didn't take too kindly to
buying "Old" Ralph any kind of
livestock for a retirement presentJ
"We need new carpet in the
den. I'm saving for that!" she told
him in a definite tone of voice;
which left little room for negotia-
tion.


So, if "Old" Ralph gets that
cow, he is just going to have to
come up with the money to buy
it. Of, course, he could just buy a
heifer calf and raise his own cow.

"OLD" RALPH IS a pretty in-
dustrious kind of guy, or he was
before he decided to retire.
Whatever he does, he's not
going to hurry!
To be diplomatic about this, I
might describe "Old" Ralph as be-
ing sort of 'deliberate' in every-
thing he does. I've never seen him
get in a hurry. I guess he could
say the same thing about me but
there. are times when I wanted to
get in a hurry, whether I ever did
or not!
I'm not standing around wait-
ing for a long, cold glass of un-
pasteurized genuine cow's milk,
you understand. Neither am I
waiting for a chunk of home-
grown rib-eye steak; whichever


fate he happened to have in mind
for that cow Betty wouldn't buy
for him.

"OLD" RALPH LEFT his of-
* fice in something of a quandary,
and didn't attempt to offer a re-
placement. He just packed up his
Atlas, his sack of boiled peanuts'
Sand his give-away ballpoint pens
collected over the years, taking
about three weeks to do it [I told
you he was 'deliberate'] and
walked out Friday afternoon-
after he got his paycheck, of
course-raised his left hand in a
salute and chirped, "See Ya!"
"Old" Ralph likes to hunt
doves, too. He and I and Grady
Player, another retiree, lease
some shooting grounds every'
year. There'll be no more of that,
though. With he and Grady both
retired, they will go every day,
taking advantage of those poor
grey speedsters.
He didn't even seem sorry to
leave for the last time.



S Date T
SJuly 14 12:36


But, anyhow; Ralph was a:
cook, of sorts, as well as being an
artist, of sorts, a hunter, of sorts
and a farmer, of sorts and a.lot of.
other things, of sorts. He kept the
office supplied with his divinity,.
fudge [two colors] -and brunswick
stew. Ain't that a combination?
"Old" Ralph could make divin-
ity, fudge [two colors] and bruns-
wick stew! At Christmas-time, he
would keep the snack tray fully
supplied with his special brand of
sweets. I'm sure Becky, Barbara.
and Jim, as well as the rest of the
office personnel on the second
floor is going to miss "Old" Ralph.
They'll miss his efforts rattling
the pots, at least.

YOU CAN'T TAKE that mis-
placed Covington, Georgia farm'
boy, coop him up in an office, and
expect him to stay for very long,
though.
He figured nearly 30 years
was long enough!

A Letter From My Son
On June 27, 1995, I received the following letter from my son.
Itwas a response to a letter I wrote him thanking he and my young-
est son for their love, hospitality and friendship they shared with
me Father's Day weekend.
ft is reprinted, without his permission, below:
June 26, 1995
Dad:
Thanks for all the help. I sure do appreciate it.
Most of all, I want you to know what a grand time I had during
your visit. I can remember it vividly.
An east wind blowing across our bare backs, bathing us in a
cool breeze, pushing away the heat and humidity. The sun was
coming from the same direction, for it had just made entrance into
the day.
I am flanked. on either side by two strong men, powerful in stat-
ure and strong with spirit. To the left is my father and to the right
is my brother. What a feeling of camaraderie, trust, love and sense
of ease.
I was drifting off, feeling the saltwater as my eyes glazed over
some old dried scales lingering on my rod from a.trip gone by.
Suddenly Mother Nature erupted! The first noise was one that

The rod spoke of the strength of the fish as it bent to the very
edge of existence and the man's face showed determination, confl-

For all of these are a welcome part of the territory.
The fight continued and it was a good one. Give, take, make

His color glistened a thick gold back, brown to amber dorsal

Sen. Connie Mack

Visits In Gulf

Guest at Bar-B-Que Friday with
nearly 300 supporters attending


U. S. Senator Connie Mack
and his wife, Priscilla, made a
sweep through the Panhandle last
week and stopped off as the fea-
tured guests at an old fashion
"country" barbecue hosted at
Ralph Rish's residence Friday

Juvenile

Grant
Effective July 1, the Florida
Department of Juvenile Justice
will assume the duties and re-
sponsibilities of the Community
Juvenile Justice Partnership
Grants program from the Depart-
ment of Legal Affairs. These
grants are funded from the state's
Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention
Trust Fund and are awarded
yearly. Organizations applying for
grant funding provide services to
juveniles, such as alternatives to
out-of-school suspensions, mon-
toring, and school safety projects.
Said Juvenile Justice Secretary
Calvin Ross, "with state budget
cut-backs, these funds have be-
come essential to juvenile delin-
quency prevention, intervention
and diversion programs. With
these type programs targeting at-
risk youth, the youths have an
opportunity to interact with posi-
tive role models and influences,
thus helping them to avoid con-
tact with the juvenile justice sys-
tem."
The Office of the Attorney
General recently awarded the
1995-96 Community Juvenile
Justice Partnership Grants total-
ing $6,677,909 to 121 grant ap-
plicants. These funds are effective
July 1 for the programs.
Locally, the Gulf Juvenile
Justice Partnership received a
grant of $60,000. This prevention
and early intervention program
will provide after school activities
by counselors that will. help at-
risk youths learn conflict man-
agement skills, anxiety/anger
management and problem solv-
ing. The counselors will'also con-
duct home visits and provide fam-
ily counseling.

review of what's happening in
Washington, D.C.
Mack told the gathering that
the voters sent Washington a
message through the '94 elections
asking for "less taxing, less
spending and more freedoms. I
think the actions of Congress are
a reflection of that mandate from
the voters," he said.
He drew applause from the
crowd when he said he thought
Congress ought to have to live
under the same rules and regula-
tions everyone else in the country
does.'
Mack reiterated his objection
to unfunded mandates from the
federal government which affect
state and local governments, but
don't provide resources for them.-
to implement the mandates.
Concerning the balancing of
the federal budget, Mack said
strides had been made with the
passing of a budget resolution to
balance the budget over the next
seven years. He noted they still
had to firid a way to come togeth-
er with the President, stating both
parties did agree the budget
should be balanced by lowering
spending, not raising taxes.


Part of the crowd which greeted U. S. Senator Connie
Mack during a visit to Gulf County Friday, is, shown at a re-
ception at.the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Rish near Wewa-

Farming Facts
There is evidence that cab-
bage-possibly originating in the
eastern Mediterranean or Asia
Minor-has been in cultivation
for more than 4,000 years. The
Celts of Europe had much to ,do
with the distribution and popu-
larization of cabbage as a food


plant.
Cabbage was first introduced
into the Americas in 1541-42 by
Jacques Cartier, who planted it in
Canada. Florida ranks No. I na-
tionally in the value of fresh. cab-
bage, accounting for 17 percent
of the nation's cash receipts for
sales last year.

Poisonous Plants Pack A Powerful Punch


Summer is a great time to en-
joy things like hiking and camp-
ing, but before you go tromping
off into beckoning woods, you
should familiarize yourself with
some of the more common poi-
sonous plants. A little prepara-
tion could save you days of un-
comfortable after effects,
resulting from contact with such
noxious weeds.
Usually, we think of poison-
ous plants as species found only
in the woods. Actually, they are
everywhere. In this article, I will
describe three common poison-
ous plants poison ivy, poison
oak and poison sumac and tell
you where you might find them.
My information on poisonous
plants was provided by Extension
Urban Horitculture Dr. Robert
Black of .the University of Flori-
da's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences..
Now is a good time to be dis-
cussing poisonous plants, be-
cause the sap of these leafy ene-
mies is most abundant during
the summer and it's usually the
sap which causes the problems.
Poisonous plants can be divided
into two groups: those which
cause skin irritation and those
which cause internal distress,
and in rare cases, even death.
Many 'factors influence the
poisonous nature of a particular
kind of plant. For example,- the
poison may be dispersed through-
out a plant or it may be localized
in a specific, plant part, such as
the roots, berries or seeds. The
amount of poison in a plant may

also vary among plants of the
same species depending on the
time of year, weather condition
and soil. Reaction is another fac-
tor that varies depending on the
age, health and sensitivity to the
poison.
Poison ivy may have a variety
of leaf shapes, but one identifying
feature. remains constant the'
leaves always come in threes with
two of them directly opposite
each other. White waxy flowers
may be found on smaller branch-


Folklife Program Needs

divided into seven to thirteen leaf-
lets that grow in pairs with a sin-
gle leaflet found at the end of
each stem. In the spring, the
leaves are bright orange and vel-

dark green and glossy, while the
lower leaves turn a pale green.
These are Florida's most com-


mon poisonous plants, but there
are many more that you should
learn to recognize and avoid. It is
especially important to keep
young children away from such
dangerous species. In case of sus-

less of the victim's age, it is wise
to contact a physician immediate-
ly especially if there are signs
of internal distress or shock.

plant after the leaves have fallen.
Poison ivy commonly grows as a
vine, climbing trees, over fences
and up the sides of walls. Howev-
er, in open fields, poison ivy may
look like a shrub.
Poison oak usually has the
appearance of a low-growing
shrub. As the name implies, the
slender, upright branches bear
leaflets which resemble, oak
leaves and also grows in trees.
Usually, the undersides of the
leaves are lighter in color because
they are covered with fine hairs..
Poison sumac grows as a
wood shrub or small tree. It never
has the vinelike appearance of
many other poisonous plants.
Poison sumac is often found near
swamps and ranges from five to

"Disappearing"


Dental

Problems


Have you reached the point
where you think your dental
problems would disappear if all
your teeth were yanked and re-
placed with dentures? That's a
dangerous myth in more ways
than one. Even if all your teeth
were extracted, your dentures
would require care, and so
would the gums and bone that
support them. Furthermore, no
matter how well dentures may
fit and look, they cannot re-
place the comfort and strength
of your natural teeth. Complete
denture wearers lose 85% of
their chewing ability. You
should do whatever you can to
save and protect them. Rule
number one: always save your
natural teeth.


Perhaps your teeth are not
as attractive as you, would like
them to be, and you find this
discouraging. Your dentist can
do many things to make your
teeth look more attractive. If
they protrude too much, they
can be corrected or shortened.
Gaps between teeth can be
closed. Chipped and broken
teeth can be repaired. Discuss
these problems with your den-
tist and find out how he can
make your mouth and smile at-
tractive.

vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of

Dear Counselor.
I am concerned about a co-
worker. I and other co-workers
have heard him mention the
desire.to'die. No reason Is ever
given. Only statements heard like,
I 'should just go ahead and kill
myself.-
I have always' heard that
statements like this, are hot to be
taken lightly.
This is a bright young person
, with many reasons; to live! I dbn't
know what to 'do 6r say to help in
his desperation. I really don't feel
that suggestions of counseling is.'
what he wants.or is ready to hear.
', Hope .you can give some
advice as to how I can be of help
and remain a friend in his eyes..
A True Friend
Dear True Friend,
You are :absolutely right to be
concerned about these comments.
Suggestions of suicide are always
to be taken seriously.
I understand your hesitation
on suggesting counseling to your,
friend. Many people hear "coun-
seling" and equate this with men-
tal illness. The truth is that most
people that seek counseling are
not 'mentally ill and in fact-most
suicidal people are not mentally
ill. Nevertheless, this person is
"asking for help" with his com-
ments and therefore needs two
things: professional assistance
and emotional support.
With regard to professional
assistance, remember that there
are many helping professionals.


Perhaps your friend would be
more receptive to counseling than'
you think, but if not, don't forget
that doctors.and clergy might be;
helpful professionals as well.'
Furthermore, most community
mental health clinics/centers pro-' ,
vide 24-hour telephone counsel-
ing without even requiring callers
to give their name. In Gulf
County. that telephone number is
227-1145.
Emotional support is the
most important ingredient for
assisting this individual. Don't
attempt to be a professional coun-
selor, but do show that you care,
and do listen. When you talk to
"him. he will see the same compas-
sion you expressed in your letter. -
Everyone experiences pain in
their' lves but no one has to go
through-pain alone. Your friend-
ship and support should be a,
great help to him in his time of.
need. Thanks for your concern.

Chiles to Tout


Health Care Plan


After Experience

Fishermen Must Pay $189 to be
Eligible for Financial Aid
One of the questions buzzing around the capitol dome in old
Taxahassee is whether Florida "he-coon" Gov. Lawton Chiles and his pro-
grams will be slowed by the early warning mini-stroke he suffered last
week while fishing with political cronies in the Everglades? It will not.
At least, that is the opinion of old Florida watchers like this reporter
who weren't surprised when he came out of the hospital plugging his
health care reform package coming up in special session because, he
said: "Everybody should have the same quality of treatment I received."
Beautiful politics. But after all, this is the old master who has a
sports hat that is Gator on one end and Seminole on the other. He also
collected $5 million from state tax money to underwrite his last campaign
for governor on a law he pressured through the legislature. And, of
course, he has never lost an election and is one of two millionaires on the
Florida cabinet.
About the only change we old-time press hounds expect from the last
of the big-state tax and spend Democrats is maybe that he-coon grin we
all expect and love may be a little lopsided after he suffered that tempo-
rary decrease of blood to his brain like the medics said.
Frankly, we were worried we might have to put up with Lt. Gov.
Buddy MacKay,-Chiles' constitutional replacement-as sort of a lack-
luster he-coon clone, maybe even possum,'with little of Chiles' colorful
flair which makes excellent news copy.
However, Chiles' health care reform package based in part on using
Medicaid payments to finance health care coverage for the working poor
is a long shot already turned down three times by the Florida Legislature.
"It is an expanded hew government subsidy program proposed at a
time when Florida and the country are going in the opposite direction and
are desperately trying to dig themselves out of a huge welfare entitlement
hole, said Senate President James Scott, R-Fort Lauderdale.
Chiles argues that the Clinton administration has already granted a
waiver for Florida to spend federal health care dollars on the working
poor, rather than on those on welfare, and that it could prevent a cap of
future federal spending on Medicaid in the state. ,:
Scott said his contacts in the Republican controlled U. S. Congress
tell him there is no chance of a "grandfather" clause as suggested by
Chiles to dodge the expected federal cap on Medicaid.
Incidentally, who paid for that fishing trip for Chiles and his cronies?
The state? It was arranged by Sumter County Sheriff Jamie Adams. They
went by private plane. Others along were former Senate President Mallory
Horne, now a Chiles' appointee; Inspector General Harold Lewis; and
hunting buddy-agriculture advisor Ben Rowe,. of Gainesvile, with friend
Bill Clayton. Stay tuned.

Here's the Capitol News Round-up
TALLAHASSEE (WNS) Florida Gov. Lawton Chile's early warning lit-
tle stroke last week is not expected to affect special sessions he is plan-
ning to call on health care and education this summer, say his aides and
Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay.
"It's not that big of a stoiy," MacKay told reporters after Chiles, 65,
was checked into a hospital with slurred speech, a loss of coordination
and vomiting, following an exhaustive weekend of fishing in the Florida
Everglades.
"I'm the lieutenant governor. Lawton Chiles is the governor," said
MacKay, who would succeed Chiles if the Florida Supreme Court decided
he was too ill to function as governor. ,
Chiles symptoms, were described as a transient ischemic attack (a
temporary decrease in the blood flow to the brain) by doctors who said it
was a possible warning sign of a stroke that could come later. They came
in the early morning hours July 5. Florida Law Enforcement officers -
notified by his wife Rhea rushed him to the hospital.
Dr. Charles Maitland said the condition could have been brought on
by dehydration during the fishing trip this weekend east of Punta Gorda.
He said 25 to 33 percent of the patients later have strokes if they don't
take precautions.
FISH PRICE UP, NETTERS MIFFED
The price on mullet and other bottom fish usually caught in gill nets
has gone steadily up on Florida's seafood markets since the ban went into
effect July 1 and out-of-work commercial fishermen have found they
must pay $189 each to sign up for unemployment compensation.
Fish dealers were expecting mullet prices to go up another 20 cents
by last weekend. In some markets it had already gone from $1.29 to
$1.49 a pound since the ban.
A Gainesville marine economist said there was no doubt the con-
sumer is going to get hit by higher prices because of the scarcity of the
usually inexpensive bottom fishes. "I don't know how high it will go or
how long it will take to get there, but the bulldozer is already headed our
way," said Chuck Adams.
Fishermen-already angry and discouraged-were told they had to ,
put out $189 up front to receive unemployment compensation payments
promised them by the Florida Legislature.
The reason given is that they nor their employers paid unemployment
insurance payments to the state all those'years they spent casting nets
into the sea for fish.
Meanwhile, enforcement of the net ban continued along the coast
with no violent outbreaks.
The courts are: still considering moves'for an injunction against the
ban on grounds brought by fishermen that the general public wasn't told
the ban would hike prices on seafood and increase taxes to provide train-
ing for fishermen to find another profession.
CLASSROOM SPENDING BATTLE
Although Gov. Lawton Chiles was ini the hospital suffering from
symptoms that could precede a stroke, his attorney was in the Florida
Supreme Court last week arguing he could legally stop lawmakers from
mandating that schools must spend more money on classrooms than on
administration.
Chiles says lawmakers do not have the authority to put directions in
the Florida budget on how the money is to be spent, unless it has been
debated and passed on by members of both Houses.
At issue is whether the Republican Senate can redirect an estimated
$127 million in spending on school administration to cover classroom

ROUND-UP

expenses.
MACK A CONSISTENT ANTI-TAXER
U. S; Sen. Connie Mack, R-Fort Myers, kept his consistency by blast-
ing President Bill CHnton's policies of higher taxes and heavy regulations
last week as the reasons the Federal Reserve Board had to reduce interest
rates again.
Family income and job growth have been substandard under
Clinton's 1993 deficit-reduction act which also raised taxes. Mack said.
In 1990, Mack urged then President George Bush to stick to his "read
my lips" pledge not to raise taxes. Instead, Bush gave in to Democrats in
Congress and his defeat at the polls is now history.
The small reduction in short-term interest rates the banks charge
their big borrowers is the first since 1992 when Bush was anxiously try-
ing to buck-up the economy before his race for a second term.
$4,400 AN HOUR
Attorneys were arguing they are entitled to $26 million (or about
$4,400 an hour) for their work in winning some $188 million in refunds
on automotive impact fees the state has collected which the Florida
Supreme Court has declared illegal.
TAX CAP BREWING
The Florida Cabinet is expected to get a dispute brewing in the con-
stitutional Save Our Homes amendment that limits yearly increases in
appraised values to three percent or the inflation rate, whichever is lower.
Florida homeowners this year get a 2.7 percent cap on property tax
appraisals because that was the inflation rate last year, but in August
when the Cabinet is back from summer break it will review a rule pro-
posed by the Department of Revenue that would allow an increase up to
3 percent even in years when the market value is flat.
HORNE HEADS HEALTHCARE LOBBY
,Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles has selected longtime Tallahassee master
politician,, legislator, and administrator Mallory Horne to head-up his
healthcare lobbying team for the August special session.
The idea came to him, he said, while they were fishing in the
Everglades over a steamy July 4th weekend in which both Chiles and
Horne suffered heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Horne, 70, served as House speaker and President of the Senate in.
the Florida legislature, then general counsel for the Department of
Agriculture and Chief of Staff to former Senate President Gwen Margolis,
D-North Miami Beach.,
Chiles appointed him chairman of the Public Employees Relations
Commission in 1993.

Florida Overturns
Judgement
Coastal Petroleum Company
said Florida's First District Court
of Appeal has reversed a lower
court's summary Judgement that
dismissed the company's inverse
condemnation claim against the
State.
The company's lawsuit, filed
in 1990, sought compensation
from the state for its expropria-
tion of Coastal's petroleum and
mineral royalty Interests in 2.5
million acres of tidal lands along
the Gulf Coast.
Coastal contended the state's
statutory ban on leasing made its
royalty interests worthless, and
therefore was tantamount to a
taking of its property. However.
the lower court entered a sum-
mary judgement against Coastal
in 1993, holding that the compa-
ny's royalty interest was so illuso-
ry that it could not be subject to
a taking.
The appellate court reversal.
handed down Friday. June 23,
said the summary'judgement had
been improperly granted, and re-
manded the case to the lower
court for further proceedings, a
Coastal spokesman said, noting
that this ruling could lead to a
trial on the merits of the compa-
ny's taking claim.
The spokesman further noted
that Coastal's 880,000-acre off-
shore working-interest leasehold
is not involved in this case.

Gle^anings From
GleaningS My Garden

By Stephen D. Cloud, Pastor of First Baptist Church, Lillian, AL


A League Of.Their Own?.
Another ball season i com-
ing to an end. Ours has been ex-
tended because our daughter is
an all-star this year. She reminds
me of her father with two excep-
tions; she is much prettier and a
better player. We have run the
toads, taking her .to and from
practice and once again I must
thank God for parents who fol-
lowed me from minor league on
all over the panhandle of Florida
to cheer their son on. They never
once complained, that I remem-
ber, and always seemed glad to
be there. My mother told me not
long ago, "If you don't have time
to coach your own daughter, then
you are too busy and need to give
some other things up." I heard
what she said because she and.
my father had always backed it
up with action. Actions speak
louder than words, but in dynam-
ic combination, they move moun-
tains.
This is the fifth year, I have
coached. One year I was an um-
pire. In those six years, I have
made some disturbing observa-
tions about the ball field. One is
that I wish the kids could truly


have a league of their own with-
out petty politics, rabid parents/
fans, and fanatical coaches. I am
the most competitive person in
Baldwin County, Alabama and in
the top five in the Southeast. But
it is just a game. folks and they
are Just kids. I won my trophies
and hung up my cleats a long
time ago. I've vowed not to play
out my fantasies of stardom
through my children or any other
child I coach. There !have been
several times I wish I could make
the parents go home and just let
the kids play.
The team I coached this year
was special. Talent wise it was
the worst team I've ever had, but
I have all ideas that this may be
my most memorable year. We
struggled all year, but with time
and patience, some girls who had
never played ball before got better
and better. By mid season we had
not won a game. After one partic-
ular game, I gave them my atti-
tude speech saying, "I don't really
care how many games we win
this year, if I can teach you to
play with spunk and sportsman-
ship, I will consider myself suc-
cessful." The girls kept asking,
"what's spunk and sportsman-

ship?" I kept telling them, it's
when you play hard, play fair and
play with enthusiasm. Interest-
ingly, we played our best in the
last few games winning one game
and tying one of the best teams in
the league. This may ibt make
me a great coach, but I am a hap-
py man about this season, be-
cause in trying to teach, I learned
myself.
What is coaching anyway? It
is teaching in an outdoor -class-
room. It is instructing in not only
how to play, but how to live. It is
the practice of mental discipline.,
Even when you no longer play.
what you learn in playing ball will
go with you for the rest of your
life. That is why I am there. I was
blessed to have some great coach-
es along the way'who taught me
to win gladly and lose graciously.
I hope I can do that for some oth-
er young person. Championships
are great. I have been on some
really good teams. But champion-
ships fade in comparison to char-
acter and that is what coaching is
all about teaching character.
Any coach that doesn't under-
stand this, and any parent who
cannot affirm it should stay home
and let the kids have a league of
their own.
