School Board Approves Tentative Budget

School Lunch Prices Raised 250 Across the Board for Upcoming Session


The Gulf County School Board unanimously approved its
tentative budget 1995-96 fiscal budget Tuesday afternoon. The
$11,857,578 financial plan met no opposition from any Board
member nor from the sparse audience attending the session.
The Board also acted on the several items they levy, millage
for, with only board member Mary Pridgeon casting the lone dis-
,senting vote on the total millage. The Board had three votes on
village with. Pridgeon's nay vote on the third and last question

.The financial plan will be accompanied by a local millage levy
of 8.018, a reduction of .785 from last year's budget.

Watson said the recommended increase of 25 4. was still not
sufficient to make the, lunch program self-supporting. "It just
means we won't have to subsidize it as much this year," he said.
Lunches will be a total of $1.50 for students and $2.25 for
teachers and adults. Breakfasts served at the lunch room will be
75*. The prices will prevail for both elementary and high
schools.
The Board questioned Watson as to the reason for the in-
crease, briefly. Watson simply said, "Our groceries cost more
just like yours do."
Watson pointed out that most of the breakfasts served were
free breakfasts. He also said the increase in price was only for
paid meals and wouldn't affect subsidized meals.


It Took



A Miracle
One of the major projects
scheduled during St. Joe Forest
Products maintenance shutdown
has been to replace the existing I
#7, precipitator with a new
1,400.000 pound unit.T
The new precipitator, built
adjacent to the existing unit, took [1
four months for Environmental
Elements Corporation to con-
struct at SL Joe's local mill. What
makes the new system unique
isn't its construction but rather4,is-Y""
how it has replaced the old pre- :.
cipitator during the mill's present .
maintenance shutdown.
After the unit was shutdown
July 10 it took just 10 days to
demolish the old unit and build a
new support structure matching
the one that the replacement pre-
cipitator had been prefabricated .
upon. Hydraulic jacks were used ''
to lift the 1.4 million pound struc- ", "
,.Lure while-large rollers .were.
affixed to it before being lowered x,
back onto the I-beam platform.','...
The new precipitator was "
pulled into place rolling onto the
rew support structures in a man-
ner similar to the way railroad
cars roll across their tracks. It
was connected to the #7 recovery LP1 g
boiler, wired to electricity and all
the various auxiliary parts
attached to it in preparation to go
back on line Thursday, August 3.
when the boiler is scheduled to
start up.
According to John Presnell,.
plant engineer, and Stephen
Vaughn, project engineer for St.
Joe Forest Products, this system
being used to replace the precipi-n
tator unit has been used less then
20 times worldwide, and was a
first for St. Joe Forest Products.
"Throtugh prefabricating and
installing the #7 precipitator unit
In this manner we were able to
avert a lengthy shutdown," they
said.
The precipitator was installed
to meet environmental guidelinesItI

Fishermen Call for Investigation of FMC

Cite Differences In Language On Amendment and Ballot Wording


Patrick McFarland of Port St. Joe and Ray Pringle of
Jacksonville, held a press conference last Thursday, reveal-
ing alleged discrepancies in the recent Net Ban constitution-
al amendment vote which has prompted commercial fisher-
men to decide to call for an investigation.


Where do you think the no-
net-fishing ban border is? Three
miles out to sea from the shore?
The Florida Seafood Produc-
ers and Consumers thought so,
too-until last week. Now Pat
McFarland of Port St. Joe and
.Ray Pringle of Jacksonville, offi-
cers of the organization dedicated
to fighting the Net Ban Amend-.
ment, have revealed that the
language on the ballot which
went before the people; the lan-
guage on the constitutional
amendment text and the,. lan-
guage actually on file to govern
the state's actions by, are all dif-
ferent.
Because of this alleged .mis-
representation to the voters on
the -part.of the Marine Fisheries
Commission, Patrick's organiza-
tion will take their actions before
the Governor and Cabinet, asking
that the MFC be disbanded for
'their actions.
"We propose that the Florida
Marine Fisheries Commission
and the Florida Conservation As-
sociation are in a state of collu-
sion to totally annihilate the com-
mercial fishing industry in
Florida," McFarland said in a
called- news conference in the of-
fice of attorney Pat Floyd Thurs-
day afternoon.


Both McFarland and Pringle
said early this week they intend
to file charges of violation of eth-
ics against the MFC and its chair-
;man, the agency's executive di-
rector, and call for a full-scale
investigation of the agency by the
Attorney General of the state of
Florida.
SAY LIMITS EXTENDED
The two fishermen, both of
whom have been put out of busi-
ness by the net ban, claim recent-
-ly discovered discrepancies in the
amendment would make the net
ban effective six miles out to sea,
instead of the state-wide under-
stood limits of just three miles at
sea.
McFarland says the text of
the amendment reflects this
'greater distance, after the people
of Florida were successfully sold
on voting to ban nets only three
miles seaward.
McFarland and Pringle held
that the U. S. recognized coastline
actually is three miles at sea.
"This is the same all over the
United States," McFarland said.
"If we start measuring from the
coastal line, and tack on a prohi-
bition for fishing with nets in an
additional three miles, we're now
forbidden to fish six miles from


shore-a situation the voters of
Florida clearly did not Intend to
have happen."
Now, the Florida Marine Fish-
eries is recording the language,
"three miles seaward of the coast-
line along the Gulf of Mexico .."
* and trying to get it accepted by
the state authorities, according to
McFarland and Pringle.
S"'That effectively puts every-
body out of business and it
doesn't keep. faith with the voters
of Florida," McFarland said.. "It
also borders on intentional fraud,
which is illegal," Pringle added.
'The MFC wants the fisher-
men to abide by the law, and they
are- doing so.. Now, they come
along and try to manage the
amendment to comply with their
wishes," he continued.
ACCIDENTAL DISCOVERY
The discrepancies in the offi-
cial language describing the
banned waters first came to light
the first of last week when Pana-
cea businessman Ronald Crumn
discovered it while examining the
documentation in search of some-
thing else. Crum was "boning" up
on his facts to present to the Flor-
ida Supreme Court in defense of
the recent shrimp net ruling,


when he discovered the differenc-
es in wording contained in the
documentation,
Crum immediately alerted
others in 'the industry, with the
result being' that the. legality of
the role played by the Marine
Fisheries Commission is being at-
tacked by the commercial fisher-
men, who will ask for the dismis-
sal of the individuals serving on
the Commission, as well as ask-
ing for the abolishment of the
agency itself.
McFarland and Pringle will go
to Tallahassee this week hurling
charges of collusion between the
MFC, a governmental agency and
Florida Conservation Association,
a group of private citizens: an
ethics complaint against the MFC
chairman and the executive direc-
tor and staff, and demanding a
state .investigation of all parties
by the Florida Attorney General.
They cite in their charges
that the MFC is bound by state
law to make fisheries-related
rules by scientific and biological
research and by economic impact
and by their recent actions, they
are alleged to have exceeded that
boundary.

Olympic Torch

What RouteWill It Follow From
Panama City to Tallahassee?

THERE HAS BEEN considerable space given tob the pending
Olympic games in area newspapers lately. One of the facets of
the games themselves, which will happen a year from now/in At-
lanta, is the upcoming activity of the bearing of the olympic
torch and the circuitous route it will follow on: its way to the
Georgia city in time for the opening ceremony. :
The route which the olympic torch will follow covers the en-
tire area of the United States, back and forth, to go. through
many of the cities of the nation and all of the states.
For instance, the torch will enter Florida at the panhandle
and will zip through Panama City, just west of Port St. Joe.
From Panama City, the torch! will travel to Tallahassee, prior to
making a swing south to the Tampa, Clearwater. Miami vicinity;
then back to the Gainesville and Jacksonville areas.
OUR QUESTION IS THIS: What i-route'will the torch follow
from Panama City to Tallahassee?
: Could it be that the olympic committee intends to follow the
scenic route along the coast, or does it intend to trudge through
the farm and woodlands of inland Florida? ,,
It seems to us the coastal route would be more in keeping
with the way the people think of Florida; seashores, beaches,'
waterfront activities such as fishing and boating. Then there is
the matter of important historic happenings which took place in
Port St. Joe. and Apalachicola. Here in Port St.,Joe we have the
birthplace of Florida. .Not even Miami has -the distinction of
claiming this unique event, so important to our nation and state.'
You can't get much more important than being the place where
it happened! .
Then,.Apatlachic6la lays claim to being the place where refrig-
eration was discovered 'and the making of ice by mechanical
means. That bas proven very important to Florida. Where would
we be as a state without air conditioning?
THESE, AND MANY MORE reasons dictate the coastal route
as being. the most feasible for the course the flame should follow.
We should busy ourselves now to the task of convincing the
olympians this is the best way to go!


He Did It Himself

A BREATH OF FRESH air came through Port St. Joe Satur-
day. After the tragic events in Panama City the past few days,
Charlie Ward gave the youth assembled to hear him, the other
side of the coin of life; the side of responsibility and the reward
of living life with a purpose other than gratifying self.
It was almost a sermon, given by Ward. when he spoke, off
the cuff, of what components had meant the most to him in his
life and what he considered the foundation on which his life had
been built.
It was almost a talk like 'Pollyanna' would have given. But
the address, however extemporaneous, contained more truth
than poetry; more fact than fietioh imnorre of a~test4monyitto har#d-
work than to relying on luck or hand-outs.
"I DID IT MYSELF through dedication and hard work,
whether I wanted to or not." Ward said as he talked without
pause for nearly an hour without even a piece of paper rustling.
The kids who were there listened! Whether or not they marked
the advice down as something to emulate is another matter: but
they heard the recipe for success for about an hour, from some-
one who had paid the price to get to the pinnacle.
Charlie Ward's talk IWe won't identify it as a speech, or ad-
dress] was straight from the shoulder and gave perfect advice to
youths of every color, black, white, yellow, red or whatever.
THERE WAS NO "black" or "white" emphasis to his address.
He was just sharing the advice of his own experience with kids.
on the secrets of success. It boiled down to. respect, persevere,
live a clean life and have a goal to work for.
"Don't give up because of circumstances or any other ex-
cuse," he stressed, as he solidly emphasized the importance of
education as the foundation for success. Right along with educa-
tion, and just as important, he listed a solid supportive family
life and a faithful, fulfilling church life. As Charlie Ward put it so
succinctly, "With attributes like that, how can you fail?"
It's a pity more kids weren't present to hear this sage advice
from a young man who has it all sorted out.

Cannonball retired from the
railroad last week after forty
years of faithful service. And
folks, that faithful service part Is

about Mr. Clio. you are fully
aware that he puts God first In

He wasn't there just to punch

took it personally. In a day when

many workers are wanting to do
less and 'get more". Cannonball
is an exception. He truly rode for
the brand.
For forty. years .'
He began in 1955. 1 can't
hardly remember back that far! I
know he rode to work that first;
November listening to Webb
Pierce's In the Jadhouse No' or
Kitty VWells doing McLkin' Believe
and Tennessee Ernie had a new
song just out-Sixteen Tons. Can
nonball was bending the strings
on an old Gibson or Martin D-50
long before he hit Port St. Joe.
You talk to those guys down
at the railroad. I don t care if it's
Randy. Joel. Eddie, Gus. Danny, '
Kenny, Donnie, Wilbur, any of
'em-to the man, they will tell you
what a special person Cannonball
is. Listen, that's a great testimony
coming from fellow workers.. As a
rookie, Wilbur trained switch

Cannonball's watchful eye. Can
you imagine trying to tell Wilbur
Butts anything
Our hats are off to you Can-

One' of the 'guys at the shop


asked if I could "get up enough
material' to do a story on their
friend. Hey, I told him I could fill
up half the column if I just listed
the children's names. I have met'
Ann on occasion. Judy is a very
special friend. I had the privilege
of' teaching Perry. Martin, Vic.
Mary Dell. Martha and Chris.
Great young people who grew into
great adults. Another living testi-

let s be honest here-Cannonball
had all those great theories on
how to raise children correctly .
. .but Miss Jean was the one

. I met Cannonball years ago
at football practice. He would be
out there walking the sideline
and yelling. THIS WAS AT PRAC-

.'ball is pretty intense at every-
thing he does? Come game night
he played harder and coached
harder than anyone'on the field. I

he did his Seminoles-and folks,

I mention that Cannonball is gen-

We'd pause to catch up on
some commercials and he'd fill
me in on his upbringing around
Enterprise. How he worked in
those cotton fields all week and
played music at the American Le-
gion in Opp, Andalusia or Sam-
son on the weekends. It reminded
me of another country boy from
up in Georgiana who made those

Ho Would a MessofFresh-Caughtried Mullet Tasteigh No


HOW WOULD A nice mess of
fresh still kicking when you -
tossed them in the pan
mess of mullet taste to you right
now? I don't mean the reasonable
facsimile Ifrozen mulleti. [ mean
the real McCoyl
The longer this net-ban law,
lingers on, the better the memory
of mullet gets to us. Why, who
knows-we may get to the point
where we crave frozen mullet.
They may become a fish of choice
for our seafood platters we order '
in seafood restaurants, like
scamp is now.
A seafood commercial I saw
on TV the other night said scamp
was the choice of commercial
fishermen. They kept scamp for
their own seafood dinners and
gave us the grouper, snapper, etc.
They even gave us 'mullet! The
fish of choice for the public fry
has become the fish to be desired;
the fish of choice to discriminat-
S ing seafood diners: sought after
because they are so scarce.


MULLET WAS THE fish one
first thought of when a plentiful ,
and inexpensive fish was needed
for a public, fish fry. Mullet has
raised more dollars for ball teams
trying to buy uniforms: groups
going on trips: school kids paying
their way to an after-school out-
ing to DIIsney World. the Baha-
,mas. or some such actIvity which.
is going to cost us money.
And. of course, the lowlyImul-
let has elected many a politician.
PoliUcs will hardly be the
same without 'the free fish fry.
People will not congregate as free-
ly anymore without the fried mul-


let to draw them' together. The
people of Florida have done a dis-
service to humanity .by regulating
the mullet out of business,
through the net-ban law.
The more I wnte on this sub-
ject, the more I want a mess of
fresh-caught mullet! But the Flori-
da Marine Fisheries Commission
and Florida Sportsman's maga-
zine have banded together to in-
terpret the constitutional amend-
ment, the.'people voted on last
November in such a manner that
it says I can't have any.

EVEN GEORGE McLawhon is


chagrined over the absence of.
mullet In our Florida Cracker
diet. George has always said he:
doesn't eat mullet and doesn't.
even associate with people who
do eat mullet. He was very ada-'
mant about the matter.
George even came' very :close
to divorcing .Miss .Audra in the'
'.first year of married life for them,
when she ordered a heaping plat-
ter of fresh fried St. Joseph Bay
mullet the first time he took his.
bride out to eat. It has been a
bone of contention between them
ever since, with Miss Audra's in-
herited appetite for the ambrosia.
of the sea still intact and well.
She still ppts for fried, mullet
when they go to, a real high-class
restaurant where they cater to
discriminating tastes, offering
only the ultimate in cuisine.,
.George has no other choice but to
sit at a different table until Audra
finishes her fried mullet dinner.
George says his distaste for


mullet is inborn because .he' had
nothing else to eat during. the
years of the depression. "'I ate so
many mullet, fried on water, I be-
gan to grow scales!" he proclaims. '

BUT, OF L4ATE; even George
has had a recurring taste for mul-
let!
There's something about their'
unavailability which makes them
more endearing to the discrimi-,
nating palate.
Before long they will be the
fish of choice. I envision the day
when they will be' sold in speak-
easies, like booze during prohibi-
tion. Bootleg mullet will become a
problem of great enormnnity, at
some time in the future. If you
happen to get an engraved invita-
tion to a fish fry [and all fish fry
invitations will be engraved in the
future] you can consider yourself
among the chosen.,
Mullet will be the meat of
choice for outdoor soirees and


parties where only, the best is
served. No1 longer will ribeye
steak, well-marbled and an inch
" arid .a half thick be considered
""the ultimate in outdoor cookery.
Lobster is passe. Chicken.is to be
shunned.

THE SUNDAY supplements
in the newspapers will all feature
the way to fix the banned mullet.
Recipes 'will abound and begin
with the words, "If you are lucky
enough, to, get your hands on a
couple: of mullet, whether by in-
heritance or illegal means...
Absence makes the heart:
grow fonder, they say. The fried
mullet was pretty popular when
they were plentiful, but they are
becoming a rare taste treat, in-
deed, now -that the very' people
who owe. their power to the lowly
free mullet fry have finagled
around and done away with this
most delicate of all denizens of
the shallow water.

Three people were injured
when' a deck collapsed, falling
approximately 10 feet to the
ground, as the Cassanis gathered
for a family barbecue. The acci-
dent occurred around 6:30 p.m.
Thursday evening at the home of
Henry Cassani on St. Joe Beach.
Henry, his wife, Florance, his
son, John and John's fiance,
Vickie Gudenburr of Michigan,
were on the deck which sur-'
rounds most of. the two story
home, when it apparently discon-
nected from the house and
plunged to the ground.
Florance Cassani received the
most serious, injuries from the
fall, crushing her ankle, breaking
her hip and fracturing a shoulder,
along with various cuts and abra-
sions. Gudenburr also crushed
her ankle and 'John Cassani
sprained his ankle.
Units of the South Gulf EMS
and St. Joe Beach Volunteer Fire
Department responded to the
scene to. give emergency medical
assistance and clear debris from
the fallen deck. ,
John reportedly proposed to
Vickie in her, hospital room after
the accident. She, ,accepted--
prompting one family member to
comment; "She's the sister-in-law
that brought the house down."
Vickie was flown to Michigan
Tuesday where she will undergo
surgery to repair her crushed
ankle. Florance Cassani already
has undergone two surgeries at
Bay Medical tenter to repair her
injuries.

Rear Editor,
It seems to me that "The
Star's" editorial of 7/27/95 titled'
"Back the Mayor" is again off the
mark as previous editorials have
been on the subject of sewers or
no sewers in Mexico Beach.
Mr. Ramsey, the Editor,
writes that he is in the middle of
this controversy and states, "we
can tell you now, flatly and une-
quivocally, we 'do not wan't to be
involved.


Yet this editorial of 7/27/95,
as others in the recent past go on
to appeal to. the citizen's of Mexi-
co Beach to trust Mayor Gaddis
as the best person to deal with
the city's needs. The editor goes
on to imply that those calling this
Mayor to task and accountability
are risking the loss of bright
young men being available for
public office in the future.
As a citizen of Mexico Beach,
I ask Mr. Ramsey as editor of
The Star to wake up and smell
the coffee. If Gary is our best
- hope for theJuture of our city. IL#-
is my opinion that we are in seri-
ous difficulty. And as far as the
statement that Mayor Gaddis has
the support of 75% of the proper-
ty owners as the editors states,
implying the large number of peti-
tioners are, meaningless, then I
suggest both,the Mayor and' city
Council back down from their ob-
noxious and fasciestic statement
That it is they, not we the citizens
who will decide to go ahead with
this sewer project. I suggest they
test your theory of having all the
support by bringing this matter
to a property owners vote.
Now with regard to the edi-
tors statement that he agrees
with Mr. Tollie Mullins, as a
member of the opposition, that
you agree to disagree without be-
ing disagreeable. A' Casper Mil-
quetoast statement if ever heard,
one. I further suggest you both
try telling a woman you love her
without heat or passion in your
words from your heart and soul.
One can not be luke warm in
matters of love whether of a wom-
an or rights as a citizen and hold
either. Let me state that our fore-


fathers were described as u....,
disagreeable with anyone who op-
posed their right to vote. While
Mr. Mullins can be very pleasant
on this matter, I can not. That is
his personality and his right. My
right is to protest in a manner
not to equivocate, not to excuse,
and not to surrender one single
inch of my Constitutional right to
vote' on this issue and any other
for that matter as a free man in a
free land.'
King George III of England
lost a people and a nation for
what history gives testimony too
as the acts' of a tyrant. Mayor
Gaddis and his supporters will
also disappear into the annals of
history with George and his back-
ers. I feel that come November,
the citizens of Mexico Beach will
reclaim their threatened rights *

strains of Wagner's traditional
"Bridal Chorus" on the arm of her
father. She was lovely in a gown of
Italian satin with a bodice of
reembroidered alencon lace en-
crusted with seed pearls. A very
becoming semi-open neckline and


short sleeves enhanced her natur-
al beauty. The unusual waistline
was accented with an appealing
off-center. pleated bow at the
front, and flowing from the back
of her gown was a graceful cathe-
dral train. Her elbow length veil of
illusion fell softly from a cluster of
white satin rosettes. Comple-
menting her ensemble were satin
gloves overlaid with matching
alencon lace. She -carried a beau-
tiful bouquet of white Tineke
roses, larkspur, freesia and gyp-
. sophila satiated with green tree
fern and 'embellished with lace
bows and streamers to comnple-
ment her gown. Her only orna-
ment was a hand painted heir-
loom ,brooch that had been
brought from Ireland by .the
groom's ancestral grand mother
in the 17QO0s. It has been worn by
his maternal family since that
time, and was worn by his moth-
er on her wedding day.
As the bride reached the altar,
David Lowery sang a beautiful
rendition of "Because". The bride
was given in marriage by her
father, who then took' his place
beside Rev. Baxter for the admin-
istering of the vows' spoken in
both Spanish and English.
Following the exchange of the
wedding rings, they -knelt for
prayer offered in Spanish by Rev.

played "Bless Be The Tie That

lit the candle representing their
union.

To climax the wedding cele-
bration guests were invited to a
reception in the church fellowship
hall. Laura Queen entertained the
guests during the reception with
her talent at the piano.
The, cake table provided a
lovely focal point for.the. room. It
held an artistic tiered wedding
cake. The traditional cutting of
the cake was done by the couple
with an engraved knife used by
the groom's parents June 11,

and served cake to the guests.

Juvenile Justice Secretary,
Calvin Ross, highlighted a recent
county chair meeting in Marian-
na. Melissa Ramsey of the Gulf
County Guidance Clinic was
present for the meeting and met.
with Secretary Ross about issues
relevant to the local juvenile jus-
tice program. Mrs. Ramsey. is the
Port St. Joe Juvenile Justice
counselor for the Guidance Clin-
ic.
Secretary Ross made meeting
introductions and also closing
comments. Meg Bates,- the Board
and Counsel's Coordinator, gave,
an update on the program. Pat
Nichols, Division Director of Pre-
ventiorn and Iritervniition, gave a.
funding initiative update for the
department. Rick Davision. the
Director of the Legislation Affairs

Office, gave a legislative status re-
port. There was time, for com-
mnents from council members.,
Concerns of the Juvenile Jus-
tice Program are that more pre-
vention and intervention services
are needed. to identify, at-risk
youth. Program officials noted
that services are working well,
but could use more funding for:
increased drug, alcohol and men-
tal health services, resources to
deal with truancy problems, more
in-home services for family sup-
port and preservation, and more
services in rural areas.
Locally,l Mrs. Ramsey, the city
police department and many oth-
er dedicated professionals have
been working to make the Gulf
County Juvenile Justice Program


a stand-out model of what a rural
county program can be. While
many inroads have been made,
there is still a great need for more
.professional people who are will-
ing to volunteer their time, talent
and concern for toinorrow's adult


population. ; '

Mail Comes

Through...

Finally

The mail still goes through,
even though it may run into a lit-
tle delay along the way, Marvin
Jones of Port St. Joe found out
this past week.
Jones received a birthday
"card last week, mailed to him
from New Port Richey, Florida,
just down the coast a piece from
Port St. Joe.
Nothing exceptional about
that-except-the card was
mailed four years and three,
months ago!
The errant birthday card took
the scenic route to Port St. Joe, to
New York, and possibly other
points. The envelope contained a
readable New York cancellation.
Nobody knows what hap-
pened to the envelope on its way
here. It was pretty beaten up and
mended with tape by the time it
was delivered.
Oh yes! The envelope con-
tained the wrong zip code in the
address! It was coded 32450. Port
St. Joe's code is 32456.'


Heartfelt Thanks
The Gulf County Senior Citi-
zens Association,, Inc. is very
grateful to Jeannie's Let's Knit
Yarn Shop, Linda's Restaurant,
Showtime Video, Ard's Florist.
The Star and the Big Barn for
selling peanut brittle to help raise
funds for the new center.

PHARMACY HAS
ITS LIGHTER SIDE


"Do you have Prince Albert in a can? You do! Well, please let
him out!" Youngsters just cannot resist calling us with this age-
old joke. But frankly, we have never really minded this or the
occasional other inoffensive joke. For it keeps our sense of
humor alert in a profession that is mostly concerned with the
seriousness of helping to treat sickness.
It also gives us a lift when a customer tells us a humorous
incident about their child or family. For it makes our
relationship more personal and we consider ourselves to be a
personal service pharmacy. We feel that a good laugh can
sometimes be the best available medicine and we try to always
have it in stock.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their pre-
Sscriptions, health needs and other pharmacy products.
We consider this trust a privilege and a duty. May we be
your personal family pharmacy?"

National Caliber Teams


The local Preble-Rish baseball
team hosted one field of the
National AAU 18 and under tour-
nament at the Port St. Joe High
School field Friday through
Monday of this past week. They
posted a 1-3 record in one pool of
the 28 team event.
Friday evening the local team
lost 4-3 in the bottom of the sev-


enth inning to the defending
national champions from Stow,
Ohio. Saturday they lost 10-1 to
Cincinnati, Ohio but bounced
back Sunday evening to defeat
South Carolina 13-0. Monday
evening they lost their final game
to Hartsell, North Carolina, 10-0.
The North Carolina team is prob-
ably one of the strongest teams in
* the tournament which is continu-


ing throughout this week.
In the 4-3 loss Friday, Russell
Young pitched a great game for
Preble-Rish with Cameron Likely
and Ryan Yeager supplying most
of the offense with two hits each.
Likely had a single-and triple with
two RBI's.

Aids In North's 15-0 Victory In Jacksonville


Robert Williams, tired from a
long night of work at his summer
job, climbed into his bed at 4:00
a.m.for what he thought would be
a nice, relaxing opportunity to
catch up on a night's sleep.
Maybe even dream of what waits
ahead for him as he checks into'
Liberty University (Lynchburg,
Virginia), next week fulfilling his
ambition to play college football.
Before the 6'4" 225 pound
lineman could get sound asleep
Port St. Joe High School head
coach and athletic director Fred


Priest was banging on his door at
6:00 in the morning. Priest asked,
Robert if he wanted to play in
Florida's North/South Allstar
game Saturday. He had previous-
ly been selected as an alternate
for the North team.
Williams answered, "Sure,
but I have to be at Liberty
University next Saturday."
"I'm not talking about next
Saturday," Priest retorted, "the
game is this Saturday."
To make a logg story short
Williams joined the North squad


in Jacksonville, at 12:00
Thursday and played defensive
tackle for the North team Sat-
urday night in the annual allstar
game.
Roberts' two solo tackles, two
tackles for losses, one caused
fumble, one quarterback sack and
two quarterback pressures were
instrumental in the North's 15-0
victory, making only the second
time in ,eight years that the North
team has won 'the intrastate foot-'
ball duel.

matched by the potent hitting of
the Cincinnati team.
In their only victory of the
tournament Preble-Rish jumped
on the South Carolina team early,
-scoring all 13 runs in the first two
innings. Cameron Likely led the
offense with his grand slam
homerun, and six RBI's. Ryan
Yeager got the win as Jarred
Patterson worked the fourth and

fifth, innings.
In the fourth game, Preble
Rish hung tight for six innings
with the score at 3-0, but were
unable to stop seven runs by the
North Carolina team in the sixth.
According to Coach Bill
Ramsey, the local team (com-
posed primarily of upcoming
juniors and seniors) gained valu-
able experience as they faced col-
lege pitchers all weekend. Most
teams entered in the tournament
had from three to nine players
already playing on the collegiate
level.

St. Joe 5 East Lakeland 9
Due to the two day backlog of
tourney games, St. Joe's team"
was forced to return to the field
for its second game at 10:00 p.m.
(eastern time). St. Joe faced the
host team, East Lakeland, in a
must win situation.
However, the game was called
to an abrupt halt in the top of the
first inning due to poor field con-
ditions. The players, officials and
spectators were relocated to the
primary field as soon as it be-
came available and play resumed
at 11:45 p.m.
St. Joe was putting forth a
fair fight as they entered the
fourth inning trailing by two
runs, when Jennifer Wise of East
Lakeland blasted a three-run
homer to bring the score to 6-1.
St. Joe rallied valiantly in the bot-
tom of the inning scoring four
runs on: two hits, but this would
not be enough to pull out a victo-
ry. East Lakeland went on to win
9-5.
On the mound, Adrian Peter-
son took the loss for St. Joe going
four innings giving up six runs on
three hits. James Daniels came in
to close the game in the fifth giv-
ing up three runs on three hits.

Leading hitter for St. Joe was
Duke Hamm, who blasted a triple
with the bases loaded to bring in
three runs. Adding to the offen-
sive attack was Bobby Phillips
with a single.

The Port St. Joe Police De-
partment will be conducting a

Anyone wishing to participate
may contact the Port St. Joe Po-
lice Department at 229-8265.


RECEIVE COVETED AWARD
With the losses to Sebring
and East Lakeland, Port St. Joe's
All Stars were eliminated from
further play. However, they did
leave a notable mark in the tour-
nament's records.
Word was received Sunday
that at the conclusion of the tour-
nament local host league, state,
and national Dixie Youth officials
unanimously voted St. Joe as the
recipient of the 1995 State

phies, will be awarded next week

their display of positive attitudes
and behavior while, representing
Port St. Joe.

Replacing


Dentures


If you've been wearing den-
tures for five years or more,
you should take a close look at
your appearance to see if there
have been any changes. For
example, when you look into a
mirror does the distance from
your nose to your chin seem
shorter than it used to be?
What about your mouth? Has it
"fallen" somewhat or lost some
of its resiliency? Does your
upper lip tend to pucker more
than the bottom one? If any of
these conditions are noticeable
you may need a new set of
dentures.
Dentures tend to settle into
the mouth over a period of time
'and show other signs of wear
that may be detracting from


your appearance. Even though
you may have thought your
dentures would last a lifetime,
'this is not usually the case.
They usually need to be adjust-
ed from time to time, and when
serious problems develop, they
may need to be replaced.
With new dentures some of
the defects in your appear-
ance, such as sags and wrin-
kles in the mouth area, may be
decreased or eliminated alto-
gether.

Ward Tells Secret of Success


Speaksto Young Boys and Fathers in Local Church Saturday;

Gives Credit to Family Life, Church Activity, and Work Ethic


Charlie Ward told a group of
young boys and their fathers just
what his secret for -success has
been and what he is relying on for
the future, Saturday afternoon.
That's THE Charlie Ward; the
one ,who quarterbacked the FSU
Seminoles to a5 national champi-
pnship and is how a part' of the
New York "Knicks" professional
basketball team. The professional
athlete, conducting himself in
less than a "heroic' way, consid-
ered his responsibility as' being
more that of a "role model" than a
"hero" prima dona, as he shared
.his secret of accomplishment
with his audience at the New Cov-
enant Church on Avenue E.
Ward had three ingredients
for his brand of success which'
didn't include the usual big sala-
ry, instant recognition by every-
body and high-flying life-style.


The three ingredients' he has
relied on for his entire life are: fol-
lowing the directions God has
stipulated in The Bible, his family
and active participation in his
church.
The former quarterback said
he had .a supportive family with
strong ties. "I have two brothers
and four sisters. We are all very,
close and supported by my par-
ents who .have been married to
each other for many years," Ward
said. "My oldest brother Is 39
years old and he is still active in
the church as are all members of
my family," he continued.
"I neither 'curse, smoke, drink
Or use drugs, even occasionally,"
he declared. ..
"With that kind of support
from. parents and looking to peo-'
ple like my pastor and other solid


citizens as role models and keep-
ing my personal life clean. I
couldn't fail. Ward affirmed. He
admitted to the tendency of
youths to look up to athletes who
receive a lot of publicity, whose
names are on the tongues of eve-
ryone at the height of their perfor-
mance career. "But, by keeping
your- values straight. you can
properly put 'our attention on
those upright people of your ac-
quaintance who are much better
people. to pattern your life after,"
he declared.
RESPECT YOURSELF
Ward said that with every
choice, there is a consequence.
"Nobody is going to give you any-
thing, free!" he emphatically de-
clared. He stressed a need for be-
ing able to respect yourself in
every accomplishment.
"God has a plan for you and
it's up to you to search for that
plan and find it. God had a plan
for me. No doubt about it. That's
why I'm not in football today. God
had another plan for my life. I
don't know what it is yet, but I'm
open to His leading in my life."
Ward said it might be in profes-
sional basketball, "but if it isn't,
I'll not be disappointed. I have en-
joyed my life to the fullest thus
far and I intend to conUnue en-
joying it, by not Insisting on be-
coming something which wasn't
meant to be. I Intend to strive for
achievement to the fullest of my
ability. It's the only way I know
how. But I won't be disappointed
if I don't reach my goal."
HAD TO WORK AT IT
Ward stressed the need for
school in anything a young per-
son expected to accomplish. "It is
the thing which makes it all
work," he said.
The speaker" said school was
nearly his downfall, too. He had a
hard time with his studies. "1
couldn't pass the entrance test to
get into college, and if I couldn't
get into college, it just wasn't go-
ing to happen," he emphasized.
Ward told-how he enrolled In
a junior college, when he failed to
get Into FSU. Even then, he had
to enroll on a 'Proposition 48' pro-
gram. He testified to having to
study and cram, even when his'
peers were out having a good'"
time. "Becausemy goal was to go
'to college and possibly play foot-
ball or basketball."
Ward finally made it' Into col-
lege, after going to junior college
for two years and laying out,
studying, for a year and the rest
Is history.
'"I'm proud of the fact that I
was a college athlete who gradu-
ated'" Ward exulted. "I'm more
proud of my.diploma-which, by
the way, I received with a 3.2 av-
erage-from a Proposition 48 stu-
dent to an honor graduate: I'm
more proud of that diploma than
I am of the Heisman Trophy!"
Ward expressed the impor-
tance of making your own oppor-
tunity. "An opportunity to try is
all you can ask for," he conclud-
ed.


Charlie Ward, 1994 Heis-
man award winner, is shown as
spoke to local youth and their
parents at a conference at New
Coventant Church here last
Saturday .


With the new school year just
around the corner, parents
should take the Ume to ensure
that their children entering kin-
dergarten are properly imrnu-
nized and protected from seven
vaccine preventable childhood
diseases before the first class bell
nngs.
"Many parents may not real-
ize a new school year is only a
few weeks away and now is the
Lime to make sure their children's
immunizauons are up-to-date,"
said the Chief of the HRS Immu-
nization Program, Henry T. Ja-
nowski, M.P.H.
Florida law requires children
to receive immunizations for the
prevention of diphtheria. pertus-
sis, tetanus, polio, rubeola, rubel-
la. and mumps before kinde'igart-
en admittance and attendance..
Proof of two doses of measles vac-
cine is required for children en-
tering and attending kindergarten
through second grade for the
1995/1996 school year. Parents
must obtain a Certificate of lIm-
munization prior to the beginning
of school to document that their
children have completed the nec-
essary immunizations to attend
school. The certificates can be ob-
tained from their? private physi-
cian or county public health
units.
"To be fully protected from
vaccine-preventable diseases, a
child should complete the basic
series of Immunizations by age
two. The booster doses of vac-
cines should be completed prior
to starting kindergarten." he said.
"Many parents mistakenly be-
lieve these diseases are no longer
a threat to their children," Janow-
ski said. "Other'parents feel they
cannot afford to immunize their
children because they either have
no insurance or their insurance
does not cover immunizations."
One federally-funded pro-
gram is removing the cost barrier
and proving to be very successful
in increasing childhood immuni-
zation rates.
The Vaccines For Children
Program (VFC), implemented by
HRS only nine months ago.
creates a new and effective ap-
proach to protecting children
from potentially dangerous child-
hood diseases by reducing the po-
tential for missed immunization
opportunities. The program
makes vaccines available free of'.
charge to private health care pro-
viders who then immunize eligible
children in their offices instead of

"Immunization is one of the
simplest and most basic preven-
tive health care services available,
and for a child that can mean the
difference between a happy,
healthy school year or the possi-
bility of serious illness and hospl-
talization," said-Janowsk. -- --

JTPA Success Stories orientation


Heather McCall and Hiram Nix Both Fill Responsible
Positions in Gulf's Visible Business World Every Day


Two Gulf County workers,
Heather McCall and Hiram Nix,
are being honored this month at
theliorida Panhandle Private In-
dustry Council's annual meeting
as JTPA success stories.
Heather McCall realized that
to start a good career, she needed



L


to complete her high school edu-
cation. After receiving counseling
with JTPA, she decided to enroll
in adult high school while being
involved in JTPA's work .experi-
ence program. As .a result, she
obtained her high school diploma
in record time and was hired as
U-

director at Gulf County Chamber of Commerce.


Hiram Nix (right) works as assistant vice president at Citizens
Federal Savings Bank of Port St. Joe.


an assistant to the executive di-
rector at the Gulf County Cham-
ber of Commerce.
"At first I thought the JTPA
program was too good to be true.
But, I just walked into their office
and told them I needed a job-
JTPA started to help right away,'"
says McCall. ,
In her position as assistant to
Chamber Executive Director Ta-
mara Laine, McCall answers in-
quiries by telephone or mail from
all over the world (from places
such as Ghana in South Africa,
Germany, and England); types
the monthly newsletter; organizes
and mails newcomer packets;
handles' memberships; and sells
business advertising space for the
Chamber's Gulf County map.
"It's been over one year that
I've been employed here. I have
learned so much from Tamara.
She has served as my mentor.
Through her assistance, I've de-.
veloped better English writing
skills and social skills. I enjoy
meeting. the, public and this job
certainly provides opportunities
to do just that," adds McCall.
In the summer of 1988, Hir-
am Nix was looking f6r work in
Gulf County. Then in September.
of 1988, JTPA was able to offer,
Nix a job with Citizens Federal
Savings Bank of Port St. Joe as a,
microfilmer through the On-The-
Job Training Program.
In the past seven years, Nix
has received five promotions due."
to his ability to perform each job,
well and articulately. Now he,
serves as assistant vice president
of the bank.
"Looking back to that sum-
mer of 1988, I was so excited to
hear JTPA found me a job. I was
going to the JTPA office every day'
to see if new jobs were available,
'then the microfilmer position be-.
came open. JTPA provided me
with the tools and direction to get
this job," states Nix.
As assistant vice, president,
Nix oversees the Florida InfoMan-
agement System (FIS) computer,
operations; maintains bank,
equipment; supervises collec-
tions; and oversees the construc-:
tion of the bank's future Mexico,
. -Beach.location..- .-- ... ,,t.... 1
When asked.- 'what he enjoys)
,....maost.about his job, Nix respond-i
ed, "I like the flexibility of my job. !
I'm not tied down. I travel to Apa- i
lachicola, Mexico Beach, Mobile,'
.and Tallahassee. Every day is:
completely different with a new
set of challenges."

Plants Do Better When Their


Nutrient Supply Doesn't Fluctuate

Controlled Release Fertilizers Give Them An Even Dose
of Growth Chemicals Throughout Their Growth Span


Feast or famine? That's a real
-problem for many house plants
-and pQr 'tlnr-'ar rettofflned 'to
tsthdil areas. Research has shown
..that plants do.much better when-.
their nutrient supplies don't fluc-
tuate. Unfortunately, when using
regular garden fertilizer, the nu-
trient level is high Immediately af-
ter application, but can greatly
diminish before fertilizer is ap-
plied again.
Whenever we talk about ferti-
S llzers, we usually mention that
S most plants need several periodic
applications throughout the year.
Soils have a limited capacity to
retain nutrients. Those needed by
plants for healthy growth must be
replaced regularly. This method
of applying fertilizers at periodic
intervals is a sound and accepted
practice. But. It does require a lot
of time and work. In this article,
I'll describe an easier and more
efficient means of supplying plant
nutrients using controlled release
fertilizers. My information on time
released fertilizers was provided
In part by Extension Horticulture
Specialist Dr. Robert Black.
Controlled released fertilizers
have been used by commercial
growers for many years. They are
liquid fertilizers concentrated into
granules and surrounded by mul-
tiple layers of polymeric plastic
resin. This covering controls the
release of the fertilizer over a long
period of time. When these gran-
ules are placed in or on top of the
soil, the water from irrigation or

rain penetrates the plastic shell
and dissolves the nutrient core.
The granules then become tiny
reservoirs of liquid plant food,
and these automatically add reg-
ular amounts of nutrients to the
soil.
Various formulations of con-
trolled release fertilizers are avail-
able. And, each one is designed to
release nutrients for a specific pe-
riod of time. Some release their
elements within two or three
months, others supply nutrients
for four to five months.
A single application of a con-
trolled release fertilizer to flower:
pots, or small beds, should be
enough to keep the plant at the


d


optimum fertility level throughout
a normal growing season. Over
veiy Iorg p5eribds, it mfay be nec-
essary to make additional abpili:
- ,-cations to-keep the-fertility level
constant.
These fertilizers have other
advantages. They can be applied
any time of the year, and they're
moisture dependent, rather than
temperature dependent. With tra-
ditional fertilizers, nutrient up-
take is slowed, or stopped alto-
gelther, if the soil temperature
drops too low. Controlled release
fertilizers stop releasing nutrients
only when the soil dries out After
irrigation or rain, they continue
supplying their elements to the
soil.
:-With new plantings, con-
trolled release fertilizers can be
mixed into the soil. For estab-
lished plants. surface applica-
tions are most effective iff the
granules are tilled in lightly--
about a half-an-inch to an inch.
Be careful not to damage plant
roots when tilling. If the fertilizer
is applied to the soil surface, and
cannot be tilled In, you need to
wet the granules frequently and
thoroughly to insure release of
their nutrients. '
Generally speaking, you need'
to use less of this kind of fertilizer
if your plants are infrequently wa-
tered, have poor drainage, con-'
tain high salt levels, or grown in
areas exposed to low light. For
more Information about con-
trolled release fertilizers, check
with your local garden center op-
erator. He can provide brand
names and suggested rates of ap-
plication.

Gleanings


y Frqm
My Garden


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


"What will Vanna wear to-
night?" This was the heading of a
newspaper advertisement for the
popular game show, Wheel of For-
tune., My cynical' response was,
"Who cares what Vanna will wear
tonight?" But we are a people ob-'
sessed with whatwe wear. It is
. big 'business; and for parerits
raising children these days, a ma-
jor expense just to keep them in
blue jeans and tennis shoes, let
alone the latest fashions. A great
mystery of the ages is how ,a
woman can stand and look at a
closet full of clothes and exclaim,
"I don't have anything to wear."
But guys, let's be fair, we can be'
pretty picky ourselves.
This grand obsession with
clothes is far from the teachings
of the Bible on the subjecL Jesus
said it most grandly, "Therefore I
tell you, do not worry about life,
what you will eat or drink; or
about your body, what you will
wear. Is not life more important
than food, and the body more im-


portant than clothes?" (Matthew
6:25). The theme of clothing one-
self is elsewhere in the Bible. It is
however, a metaphor for a much
more important fashion state-
ment. "clothe yourselves with hu-
mility toward one another" (1 Pe-
ter 5:5 NIV); "for all of you who
were baptized Into Christ have
been clothed with Christ" (Gala-
tians 3:27 NIV); "clothe 'your-
selves With the Lord Jesus Christ
and do not think about how to
gratify the desires of the sinful
nature" (Romans 13:14 NIV).
With all this, people are most
obsessed with what they wear to
church. I understand the dilem-
ma because I think it Is proper to
wear our best when we go to wor-
ship. But not all of us have the
Same idea or the same price
range for what is best. There is a
clothing that is much more im-
portant than the things that hang
in our closets; it Is the real fabric
of our lives. I have met some peo-
ple who didn't know much about
dressing properly, but when It
came to living, they were in the

Our handsome suits,

Clothed in comely robes

Bre.astfeeding
Week Celebrated
Gulf County and community
groups throughout the state are
organizing activities for World
Breastfeeding Week, August 1-7.
This year's theme in Florida is
"Empowering Women: The Right
to Choose". Special attention is
being focused on programs and
health care providers who sup-
port and promote breastfeeding..
The Gulf/Franklin W1C pro-
gram provides breastfeeding in-
formation to all pregnant women
receiving W1C benefits and con-
tinues this support and encour-
agement after the baby is born.
WIC has an enhanced food pack-
age for those women who choose
to breastfeed, and the trained
staff provides assistance to par-
Ucipate if problems arise.
Florida has a unique history
in promoting breastfeeding. Prioi
legislation has been passed which
protects the rights of mothers tc
breastfeed in public. Last yeaJ
lawmakers adopted legislation
aimed at making healthcare pro-
viders and employers more sup
portive of breastfeeding. Thai
measure established a state
"Breastfeeding Health Initiative"
program.
Currently, the state of Florida
leads the nation in the number o
facilities participating in the
Breastfeeding Health Initiative
This.program Is part of a world
wide WHO/UJNICEF program de
signed to encourage the promo
Uton of breastfeeding In hospitals.
Anyone interested in finding
out more Information on breast
feeding can contact their health
care provider or the Gulf County
Public Health Unit at 227-7231.

"Song of Suffering"
Released With
An "R" Rating
No one is exempt from suffer-
ing. In fact, of the few things that
all people have In common, suf-
fering is primary. And yet, most
people give suffering little
thought, that is, until they are
suffering, and then can think o(
little else. We live during a time
and in a society filled with people
that go to great extremes to avoid
pain, usually to no avail. Surpris-
ingly, many people who suffer
have said that they were the bet-
ter for It. Historically, those who
have made meaningful contribu-
tion and have become extraordi-
nary people have done so, in part,
because of the suffering they
have experienced. Is it possible
for the suffering we endure to be
productive? Does suffering pro-

Dear Counselor,
Help, I can't sleep and it's
making life miserable My hus-
band is away on business and I
miss him, especially his physical
presence in the bed. I've tried over
the counter sleep aids and activi-
ties such as cleaning house before
bedtime. Neither one helped. I
usually get to sleep easily. What
do you recommend?
Sleepless in SL Joe
Dear Sleepless in St. Joe,
The mhjor reasonrr yu" are'
having problems sleeping is prob-
ably because your routine has
been temporarily changed while
your husband is gone. For-
tunately, you sleep well when he
Is home. There are a significant
number of people that suffer from
"insomnia." Some experience
insomnia for medical reasons and
others due to emotional stresses.
This list of suggestions for
better sleep may be helpful:
1. Avoid self-medication such as
sleeping pills or alcohol. Taken
night after night, pills will actual-
ly work in reverse and keep you
awake. Alcohol will cause a rest-
less sleep, and may wake you up.
possibly with a hangover.
2. Worry outside of bed. If you find
worries on your mind at bedtime,
get up and write the worries down
in a diary, but don't take your
stresses to bed with you.

3. Avoid naps. Naps disrupt the th
sleep habit you are trying to
establish.'
4. Don't do energizing activity ti
before bedtime because you will
be full of energy instead of tired.
Exercise in the early evening to 7:'
promote sleep. El
5. Have a light snack before bed- Po
time- because hunger can disturb a.i
sleep. S
6. Don't smoke, and avoid caffeine w
close to bedtLme because It dis-,
,rupts sleep. -
7. Keep your bedroom quiet and
the temperature cooler if possible.
8. Lastly, sleep in moderation. Get
as much sleep as you need to feel
rested, but go to bed and awaken
on a regular schedule.
If'sleeplessness persists, con-
suit your physician or a psychia-
trist.

College Athletics


Not Strictly Sports


Programs Anywhere

High Coaching Salaries Top Pay
In Other Higher Echelon Jobs
GIVE COLLEGE ATHLETICS BACK TO THE STUDENTS
Perhaps the zenith of hypocrisy in this old government town of
Tallahassee is the fact that Florida State University football coach Bobby
Bowden and basketball: coach Pat Kennedy are paid a heck of a lot more
money than college presidents, professors, other high-ranking officials
and even he-coon Gov. Lawton Chiles.
It breaks this old sports reporter's heart to say it, but the win-at-all-
costs. tradition of big-time college athletics with its utter lack of sports-
manship, moral values, and leadership probably best portrays what many
are beginning to recognize as this country's post-Christian era.
You can quickly add, of course, that .the same anything-goes-to-win
situation exists in Gainesville where football coach Steve Spurrier and
basketball coach Ron Kruger compete with Bowden and Kennedy in pay
packages. It's not called a state payroll, but under a different name (the
University of Florida Athletic Association) it is the same thing-an embar-
rassing amount of money that sends the wrong message to our young
people.
Ditto for the University of Miami, a private school in the big Florida
three. When-all the figures are known you'll find Bowden at the top of the
big school pay field ($1 million anticipated soon) followed by Spurrier and
then the Miami football coach.
They're all nice guys (Bowden is even a Republican and sometimes
witnesses at Christian events with Billy Graham). It's the system that is
lousy.
In a simpler America not so long ago college athletics could teach
young men and women valuable sportsmanship, old-fashion honor, and
a lot about themselves in terms of determination, teamwork, and clean
living. Strong bodies and strong minds were the goals.
Nowadays, the championship Seminoles are often called the
Crimlnoles for good reasons and. of course, the same can be said of the.
Gators and the Hurricanes.
The fact is, that families once warned their children to stay away from
pool halls and the shady characters that hung out in those parts of town.
Nowadays they have to tell them to avoid .college campuses and you can
just about forget about college athletes being role models anymore. To be
a good sports reporter these days you've got to have a background in
crime and police beats. One of the country's greatest football heroes is on
trial out west for a double murder.
There was a sports story in the daily newspapers reporting the state
salaries for officials that I based this column on which said a new wide-
-receiver prospect for the Seminoles vwas cleared of his criminal record by
a committee so he could try out for the team. They've got committees to
explain it now.
When is enough enough? How about giving college athletics back to
the real students just for the good of the country? The money be damned.
And the so-called "sports fans" are just as bad. They are, perhaps the
real reasons big-time athletics is so sick. Did you read about the cop in
Jacksonville charged Sunday with beating his wife after the newly formed
Jaguars lost their first football game? The wife told police "all was fine
until the Jaguars lost."
JUSTICE GONE CRAZY: Thoughtful Floridiahs should be forgiven if
during this week as Janet Reno testifies in Washington on the unhappy
Waco, Texas affair they remember an unusual but significant name-
Bobby Fijnje' (pronounced FAIN-ya).
Fijnje, a 15-year-old baby sitter at a Miami Presbyterian Church (Old
Cutler) was found not guilty' in 1991 ofsix counts of sexual battery
-against two girls in the Sunday school class and one count of lewd and
lascivious assault. Jurors, during the three month sensational trial which
skyrocketed television ratings, concluded the charges based on testimo-
ny of chiWjren in the church after lengthy sessions with therapists were
4implyareaction to the. suggesuons made by-the psychologists and were
not factual. '' ''
'The children initially had nothing to say about abuse. Only with the
work of therapists over a number of months and constant pressure from
parents did any' allegations emerge," said Utah psychology professor
David C. Raskin, a defense expert witness.
'Then you had an ambitious state attorney (Janet Reno) who wanted
to make a name for herself," Dr. Raskin said.
The Reader's Digest published a story on the case in 1994 after
President Bill Clinton had appointed Dade County State Attorney Janet
Reno Attorney General of the. United States. Its title: "JUSTICE GONE
CRAZY."
Here's the Capitol News Round-up
A pioneering agreement being forged by the state and Georgia-Pacific
Corp. to buy development rights on some 50 square miles of north cen-
tral Florida wetlands is being hailed as a much better idea for taxpayers
than an outright purchase.
The St. John's. River Water Management District is buying the legal
rights to determine how the tracts in Volusia and Alachua counties are
used at a still undisclosed price. The huge timber and pulp mill company
would retain ownership and management of the land, but under a set of
negotiated guidelines set by the water management district,
The state has drawn much criticism for owning some 1.8 million
acres of land it paid too much for and is managing poorly.
Coming under specific attack is the South Florida Water Management
District that wants a big 25 percent hike in its property tax levy to buy
sugar cane farm land to set aside to help restore the polluted Everglades.
The Florida Cabinet is to decide in February whether to pay some $64
million to St. Joe Paper Co. for the cane, farm and under the CARL (con-
servation and recreation land), act. The negotiated use contract is not
under consideration in that proposal.
WHO FAVORED BUSINESS THE MOST? Former Democratic Senate
President Pat Thomas of Quincy and Republican Rules Chairwoman Toni
Jennings of Orlando cast the most votes (22) for business in this year's
session of the Florida legislature, according to Associated Industries of
Florida. Rep. Jerry Mehin of Fort Walton Beach, turned Republican this
year, cast the most pro-business votes (29) in the House.
Rep. Helen Spivey, D-Crystal River, the great-grandmother of the
House, got the worst record (perhaps in her eyes the best) against busi-
ness in her first session, casting only 12 votes for AIF positions on bills
and nine against for a 57 percent score.
Sen. Betty Holzendorf, D-Jacksonville, had the worst pro-business
record in the Senate, scoring 67 percent on the AIF score card.
LITTLE NET BAN VIOLENCE: Commercial fishermen did not turn to
violence in the face of a constitutionally mandated net ban that went into
effect July 1, said the Florida Marine-Commission. Instead, they have
taken their challenges of it to court.
FMC spokesman Lee Schlesinger said, aside from tacks being scat-
tered around some central Florida boat ramps favored by recreational
fishermen there have been very few incidents in the enforcement of the
net fishing ban.
