It's A'Near Miss' From Hurricane "Erin" County Moving


Storm Causes Minimal
Damage to Gulf County
Gulf County dodged the bul-
let a second time this young hur-
ricane season last Thursday.
Hurricane "Erin" skirted right on
by, with Gulf receiving a glancing
blow from the fifth storm of the
season.
When she skipped by Gulf,
"Erin" was barely at hurricane
force but she gathered strength
and became a class 2 storm by
the time it reached landfall in the
Escambia and Santa Rosa county
area, packing winds at .over 100
miles per hours
When "Erin" sailed by Gulf
County, about 80 miles to the
south, Port St. Joe 'experienced
winds of 50 mph with gusts bare-
ly reaching hurricane force.
MINIMUM WIND DAMAGE
Gulf County suffered relative-
ly minor wind damage from the
threatening storm. The Star had
reports of some roof and structu-
ral damage in the Indian Pass-
Cape San Blas area, a tree blown
over here in town which fell on a
pick-up truck and a tree which
fell on a mobile, home causing
only slight damage, in the Willis
Landing vicinity.
There was some flooding and
road damage in the Indian Pass
area, where water covered County
Road C30B, the major artery to
the Pass. Some road damage was
reported in south Gulf county,
but, again, there was nothing ma-
jor to report. Wave action was felt
throughout Gulf county, with
high, rough seas reported, but no
appreciable tidal surge of water
was experienced anywhere in the
county.

aim her fury fully at Port SL Joe.
A Red Cross shelter was opened
at the Community Building in
Wewahitchka, to be ready if it,
was needed to house county resi-
dents fleeing the storm.
Wells said, 'We missed being
storm victims one more time, but
we were ready if it had taken
dead aim at us."


An angry Gulf of Mexico and high winds attest to "Erin's"
visit in the area Thursday morning.



No casualties were reported in Gulf County as
a result of the storm. A vacationing Georgia man
and his daughter disappeared Wednesday as the
storm was approaching the coastline and hasn't
been seen since. (See accompanying story)


Emergency Manage-
ment director Larry Wells
and the Gulf County Com-
mission began conferring
at noon Wednesday about
steps to take to keep
county residents as safe as
possible. Here Wells con-
fers with some of his vol-

Gulf Couity Schools Open


Doors To Students Today

A Full Array OfActivities Will
Greet Students On Opening Day


Gulf County schools will open
this morning [Thursday] to a full
day of classroom activities and a
day spent in learning the "do's"
and "don't's" for the approximate-
ly 2,200 students expected to
show up on opening day.
According to Administrative
Assistant Temple Watson, all
schools in. the county will open
with a full complement of faculty.
For the most part, the faculty will
be the same .as last year, with a
few exceptions. All schools have
at least one new instructor on
staff, with the exception of the
Wewahitchka Elementary School,
which will have four new faces on
the staff.
STARTING TIME
All five schools in the District
will begin classes around the
same time. The two high schools
in the county will each start
school at 8:05, local time. High-
land View Elementary School and
Wewahitchka Elementary will be-
gin classes at 7:55, local time.
Port St Joe Elementary will start
at 7:50 and Prt St Joe Middle
School will begin at 8:00.
The day will end at 2:10 p.m.
at Highland View, Port St Joe
and Wewahitchka Elementary
and Wewahitchka High School;
2:18 for PSJ Middle School and
2:24 for PSJ High School.
The 2,200 student are divid-
ed between the five schools in the


county, with Highland View ex-
pecting approximately 180 stu-
dents, PSJ Elementary 506, PSJ
High 400. PSJ Middle School
220, Wewahitchka Elementary
485 and Wewa. High School 485.
NEW PROGRAMS
Two of the schools will intro-
duce new teaching programs this
school year. Wewahitchka Ele-
mentary school will Introduce
"Continued Progress" to students
in grades K through second
grade. Students in these three
grades will spend part of their
time together with the older stu-
dents helping the younger with
his classwork.
In the Wewahitchka High
school, SMART will be a new
teaching concept introduced. It is
an acronym for Students Making
A Remarkable Transition. Watson
said the system is expecting great
results from this program.
Port St. Joe High School is
nearing completion of a science
technology center which they
hope to have up and operating In
about six weeks.
To sort of temper the transi-
Uon from vacation lo school days,
the first break in classroom activ-
ity will be experienced in just
three weeks when the entire Dis-
trict will observe Labor Day.
All in all, it is a new school
year which will greet the students
with very few surprises.

Raffield's Eases


Pensacola's Pain

Local Firm Gives 80,000 Pounds
of Ice to Hurricane "Erin" Victims
It takes someone who has experienced destructive Inci-
dences in their life in the recent past to recognize the problems
of others who have faced massive destruction, whether from
storms, fire, or net ban rules.
Raffield Fisheries sacked up 80,000 pounds of ice and
shipped It by refrigerated truck to the Escambia and Santa
Rosa county areas Saturday to ease part of the discomfort
caused by the eye of Hurricane Erin passing through their
area causing considerable damage and power outages.
According to Emergency Management Director Larry Wells
the state emergency headquarters had said that lack of ice was
a crucial need in the storm's destructive path. Wells said when
he contacted Gene Raffield about buying ice, he immediately
replied, "We don't have much ice available right now, but If
you'll just give me a few minutes, I'll go turn the machine on.
and you can have all the ice you need or want."
Wells said. "That was a generous offer, considering the fact
that Raffield had no points to make through giving it, such as
other people had and he Immediately made all of his facilities
available to us for as long as we needed them."
The Ice was shipped to the Pensacola area in two tractor
trailer refrigerated trucks. One of them was provided by
SuperValue Grocers in Quincy, and the other was arranged for
out of the Franklin County area and made available at no
charge. The ice was bagged and loaded by approximately 40
inmates from Gulf Forestry Camp, who worked all day
Saturday and half the night in the humanitarian project.

Still Missingin Gulf

Report Of Recovery OfFrank And
Meagan StadlerIs Still Not Verified


Expectations were sent soar-
ing Tuesday. morning and then
began to be dashed again in the
late afternoon when reports that
Frank Stadler, 46, and his nine.
year-old daughter, Meagan, had
been found. After spending six
days In the Gulf of Mexico, in a
hurricane aboard a rubber raft,
the pair had been given a slim
chance, for survival. Later in the
day, inconsistencies in the rescue
report began to show up, creating
more anxieties.
Stadler and his young daugh-
ter, Meagan, disappeared in the
Gulf Wednesday between .11:00
a.m: and 2:30 p.m. in the face of
approaching Hurricane Erin. The
family had gone to, the beach
Wednesday to enjoy a beautiful
day in calm water. He and his
daughter were playing around the
water's, edge in a rubber raft
when his wife and son went back
to the vacation house they were
renting. The Stadler family of
Thomastpn, Georgia, where he
was a pilot for an air freight firm,
was spending a vacation week at
Cape San Bias. They appearantly
did not know of the approaching
storm.
REPORTED MISSING
About 12:30 p.m., Linda
Stadler missed her husband and
daughter and began looking for
them. Around 2:30 p.m., her
search fruitless, she called the
Gulf County Sheriffs office and
expressed her anxiety over the
fact that she couldn't find her
husband or daughter.
Sheriff Frank McKeithen im-
mediately enlisted the aide of the
Marine Patrol, U. S. Coast Guard,
and Gulf County Search and Res-
cue Unit to begin looking for the
pair.
Mrs. Stadler said the last
time she saw them, they were
playing around the edge of the
water in the rubber raft Her hus-
band, daughter and the raft were
all missing.
Searchers looked throughout
the rest of the day Wednesday for
the man and his daughter in the
face of deteriorating weather con-
ditions. I
The Sheriffs Department uti-
lized a boat furnished by Captain
Black's Marina to conduct a wa-
ter and beachside search and the
Coast Guard sent two aircraft
into the area.
All three agencies searched
diligently until late Wednesday


night when they had to cancel
their activities because of the em-
inant hurricane.
The search was resumed as
quickly as the weather would per-
mit but still no sign of Frank
Stadler or his daughter, Meagan.
Sunday night at 11:30 p.m.-
four days later a raft, which
was identified as the Stadler craft
by serial numbers, washed
ashore in Walton County, sixty
miles west of where the two had
disappeared.
Sheriff McKeithen sent two
Gulf County units to Walton
County to help look for the miss-
ing people where they continued
their search until Tuesday morn-
ing.
HOPE SURFACES TUESDAY
Tuesday the community was
electrified by a report that the two
had been found and were alive
and safe. A radio message re-
ceived by a Jacksonville shipping
firm reportedly from a Mexican
fishing boat said they had picked
up the father and daughter and

AV m m-mr-'ew Y W 5) .**"


Back To Class!
SCHOOL HAS BEEN out for two months and two weeks for
the annual summer vacation. Now It's getting set to start again.
Today!
Has the vacation been long enough? Ask any student and he
will tell you "No!" Ask any parent and he will tell you 'Yes, too
longl'
It seems as if school just let out for the summer last week
and now they are starting again. Like many other things in life,
summer vacation is not like it used to be. It doesn't seem to be'
as. long and the period of time is more crowded with activities
than it seemed to be when we were a child.
AROUND PORT ST. JOE, summer vacation has been filled
with baseball activity. As a matter of fact, baseball is just going'
to make it to the finish line in time for classes to begin once
more.
There have been three or four programs and tournaments for
Dixie Youth ages. Dizzy Dean League for older boys played right
up to last week end. American Legion ball, which local teams are
not Involved in, just had their state tournament this past week
end with the American Legion World Series still to go. Dixie
Youth League [which is a' big operation in Port St. Joe] still has
its World Series to play next week.
Summer just isn't long enough to get in all. the activity.
THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE the time kids spend at the beach,
on the river and creeks, on vacation with their parents, at the
amusement park, and just "hanging out". Kids don't have time
for a summer vacation any more!
Now, if mom and dad want to plan a summer vacation with
the family, they have to plan them around the kids' activities.
We noticed a couple of weeks. ago, when all the teams were in
this area for the AAU national baseball tournament, families
were here and:in Panama City from as far away as California,
with their kids, involved in the baseball tournament. For many
of them, the baseball tournament was their family vacation and
they seemed to be enjoying it.
Going back to school today, may be a welcome activity for,
kids as well as parents. Maybe now they can get rested up from
a busy schedule they have had all summer long.


Progress Through Cooperation


I don't remember exactly
when I realized that I was one of
those people that got confused
about "things" on a regular basis.
I do know the on-going situation
with the hogs still has me
scratching my head thirty-five
years later. We'd buy young pigs
for nineteen cents a pound. We'd
feed 'em,. medicine 'em up, care
for them real good every day
through most of the winter and
all spring and all summer. We'd
buy, plant, hoe, fertilize, water
and then pull all that corn to fat-
ten 'em up by fall. We'd sell 'em
over at the Tri-County Stockyard
Auction for .fourteen cents a
pound. You figure the time, food
medicine, etc. we had in those old
hogs- they'd a' had to weigh for-
ty-three hundred pounds a piece
for us to just break even. We nev-
er made money raising hogs.
NEVER! But we never quit trying
. year after year. .. .
I think I was confused over
that thin line between cost-
effective pig farming and just
plain old-fashioned stubborn-
ness.
I watched Leon grow up. That
could and would and did cause

scramble from time to time. Ra-
tional, orderly, every thing -
makes sense worlds are not for
his likes . .
I grew, up wanting to date
Mary Hadley Haden. Mary E. Pen-
dieton chased me from the sec-
ond grade on. Mary Hadley
looked like one of those girls on
the cover of TEEN magazine Mary
E. reminded me of death eating a
cracker. Mary Hadley was home-
coming queen. Mary E. was the
senior float. I often sat and pon-
dered why the Mary's of this
world couldn't a' just swapped
places.
I asked my Father once why
"things" could get so mixed up.
Was I the only guy that stayed
confused about half the time?
Would the picture get clearer as I
get older?
"Son, life gets :,tedious at
times." That answer to a fourteen
year old, as you can well Imagine,
really cleared things up.
"Dad, I don't understand---" ,
"Most days, son, I don't ei-',
ther."
Well, that gave me a lot, of
hope for the future .. .
Two weeks after I married I
discovered my new bride would
eat, actually liked, and served up
brussel sprouts and cauliflower.
She didn't like, wouldn't hardly
abide and staved on me constant-
ly about my chewing in the
house. Dad's words of not under-
standing all he knew came ring-


Ing home.
Then we had two boys. Folks.
my confused state reached an all-
Ume highly They would t buy a
pair of jeans unless they were al-
ready worn out-and cost forty
dollars. If something was "bad", it
was good. "Far out" was a place
they were trying to get to. I was
the only father In town who
"didn't understand" young people.
And I was "Just put on earth to
hold them back". And I'll never
forger the shaved lined Brian -
Bosworth Kiss Sting Grateful
Dead haircut. And his Mother
even took up for him. She
threw her body between us and
more than likely saved his life.
I've heard it said that the old-
er the children get-the smarter
the father becomes. That phe-
nomenon hasn't broken out yet at
our house.
S.I'm getting older and I want
,,top be 'less confused. I want
", things" to be orderly and in their
'place. I'm tired of being "turned
around".,
There's a couple of worldwide
events going on right now that's
'not helping my gray matter -rest
at all. One is the Croatia situa-
tion. And I'm not trying to make
light here of very serious life and
death struggles. I'd just like to
have a clear understanding of
what is going on. I have watched,
read, listened and generally tried
to keep abreast of the thing for a
year. I don't know yet whether I'm
pulling for the Croats or the


Serbs. I'm confused. Are there
any good guys in this fight? And
If they have been fighting for two
thousand years. I've got some
news for Bill Clinton, Boris Yelt-
sin, the United Nations or anyone
else trying to get between them .

The other involves the ques-
tions being raised right now over
the rightness or wrongness of the
dropping of the atomic bombs. I
understand the fifty year remem-
brance services in Hiroshima and
Nagasaki. We mourn the loss of
"any life and certainly many there
died a horrible death. But so did
,those unsuspecting soldiers and
civilians at Pearl Harbor. Japan
wanted war, asked for war, ini-
tiated war. We gave them war.
I'm just a little confused on
how we're coming out the bad
guys fifty years later,
My Dad spent three and one
half years of his life in the South
Pacific fighting a war he had
nothing to do with. He was on Lu-
zon Island in the Phillipines gear-
ing up to invade Japan in August
of 1945.
'Over the years Dad was the
first to admit that he didn't exact-
ly have a handle on everything
going on around him. He was not,
however, confused on why or how
or for what reasons we dropped
two atomic bombs on Japan.'
And neither am I.
Respectfully.

STHE COUNTY COMMISSION is beginning to do things right.
Though they are still a little creaky and rough around the edges,
they are beginning to talk about the, needs of the county as a
whole before they make a major m9ve. That's good! It's some-
thing which has needed doing for a long time, but'in the past in-
dividual members of the Board have been too jealous of 'what
district will benefit most from their actions to properly consider stT
the needs of the.people as a whole. Storm Tide Surge
Jealousy and envy of perks the Board has control of still is
present, but there indications it is disappearing.
FOR INSTANCE the most recently considered action of the
Board to re-finance its road bond money in order to get a lower
interest rate and encumber a source of money becoming availa-
ble this year, is a case in point.
The Commission has taken the route of talking with both cit-
ies intlie county. They didn't just say- 'This is how it's going to .
be." The Commissioners of both Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe .
were called together to discuss the needs of both cities and the
county as a whole.
Surprisingly, all three Boards agreed on a plan, amicably, as
the needs and the available money were revealed.
There has been no fussing, no hard feelings, no feeling that
one end of the county received more than its fair share of the
money and road work. An understanding of over-all need was ar-
rived at by discussing the various items and explaining why a
particular project must be done before another.
AS A RESUL OF this give and take, citizens of Gulf Couin't
will see the most needed roads re-surfaced, repairs made in the*........... -
future on a timely basis without bickering over whose responsi-
bility it is to maintain a certain stretch of roadway, and money
will be kept in reserve should we need some paving on an emer-
gency basis in the future.
Such cooperation is almost unheard of in our county, and
we suppose, in almost every county in the United States. Every
community tends to be selfish where public services are con-
cerned..
We're not ready, yet, to relax our vigilance for any deals ... ,
which may arise from any source, so far as public money and its .
expenditure is concerned. We do feel considerably more at ease ""--
toward the trend which seems to be taking place in Gulf County.



'rin" Was the Most Aptly Named of Hurricanes; Unpredictable
Surr anes; npredbtaHl


WELL, WE'VE HAD our sec-
ond storm of the season and it
was just about the intensity as
the first one a lot of bluster, a
little blow, a lot of trash as a re-
sult and a lot of uncertainty
about what it was going to do.
I slept through the whole
night and woke up in the morn-
ing to a yard which was trashed
pretty goqd and two dogs which
wouldn't go outside for their
morning constitutional. The pa-
pers weren't in the box out in
front and some of the TV stations
were off the air. The electricity
was off downtown, so there
wasn't any need to go to work at
the usual time.
My "barber shop" was closed
and it- was my day, Thursday, to
get a haircut, so I didn't.
With the TV stations off and
the DAILY newspapers failing to
come, the power off and the rain
coming down, there was nothing
to do but catch a little cat-nap
while listening to the rain patter


down outside.

THIS STORM WAS named
"Erin", which I thought was very
appropriate. I nave a grand-
daughter named Erin and she is
just as unpredictable, as flighty,
and as noisy as the storm "Erin",
turned out to be. Erin breezes in
and out of the house with no an-
nounced direction, just like "Erin'
did.
Erin lives in Tallahassee,
where she works in a major de-
partment store and goes to FSU.
We never know just what day or
half day, or night, or morning,


she is going to show up at home
for just a couple of hours. One
day, when you least expect her,.
there she is .. .just like "Erin".
And when she leaves, she
leaves a memory of her visit,
whether it is a re-arranged room,
a trip through the kitchen cabi-
nets and refrigerator; an hour in
the shower and bathroom or just
the reverberation from her inces-
sant chatter. You know for a
while that she has been there.
She is unannounced, too, un-
til the last minute. If you remem-
ber, "Erin" just popped up in the'
Atlantic Ocean near Cuba.all of a
sudden, and lo and behold, we


had us a hurricanes
Is there any wonder they are
named after women?

I'M GLAD THE people in
charge of issuing warnings, used,
a little discretion in their keeping
us posted, this .time around.
There was none of that 'scatter
gun' approach, where they issued
a warning to everyone to evacu-
ate. "Erin" was just about as bad
as "Alyson", which paid us a visit
along about mid-June and
caused everybody to run and pre-
pare like crazy and then didn't do
anything but wet us dowinin a
sort of medium to slight manner.
I'm not advocating taking a
hurricane lightly. They are storms
to be reckoned with and prepared
for. I've seen some doozies .during
my time in Port St. Joe since
1940. I've seen more of them
which were like "Erin". 'The dooz-
ies, you run from! The "Erins",
you just stay inside and try to:


stay dry until she passes.

NO STORM should be ig-
nored..
A person should stay in
touch 'with the world out there
and stay fully briefed as to the in-
tensity of the storm, and its ex-
pected pathway. Even as late as
Wednesday morning;, the report
was, "We can't be sure where it
will go or hit land. Stay in-
formed."
That's 'telling the truth like it
is and giving you good advice.
About the worst storm I ever wit-
nessed here in Port St. Joe, was
in 1985. It came for a visit and
was one of those doozies. Then It
figured it hadn't done enough
damage the first time so it re-
versed its 'direction and came
back again to finish the job. Fren-
chie had a flowering crab apple
tree out in the yard which was
blown over the first time the hur-
ricane came through. When it


came back through, it set the tree
up again -and blew it over in the
opposite direction!
After the' storm had passed,
we went out and huffed and
puffed until we had the tree up-
right once again. It's still growing!

HERE, IN PORT Joe, we
have it lucky. In the first place a
hurricane has to be a contortion-'
ist to hit us head-on, what with
the manner in which Port St. Joe
is located on the coast. Then, we
have a host of volunteers who.
stay up all night long during one
of these storms, protecting us
from harm as much as'they can.
They are alert and on the job to
care for any emergency which
comes our way.
So, the best advice I can give
you is, run when a doozie comes

Paving
be charged for dry-runs made by,
the South Gulf County .Ambu-
lance Squad.
Chief Administrator, Don
Butler, told the Board that the
ambulance crews made four dry-
runs over the past weekend. He
said calls were made for the am-
bulance and, for one reason or
another, the callers decided they
didn't need an ambulance once it
had arrived, tying Up as much as
one hour of the crews' time for
each run.
The Board decided on the
$100 fee, also proposing that the
same fee be offered to Mexico
Beach in an inter-local agreement
to furnish emergency aid to call-
ers. ..
The Board also refused to
grant a Certificate of Need to Gulf
Pines Hospital to operate an am-
bulance service from the hospital.
ROAD BONDS
The county is moving ahead
with their proposed $2.5 to $3
million dollar road paving bond
issue.


from Page 1
They have hired Raymond
James and Associates to handle
the new bonding issue which will
re-bond the current $3.6 million
bond issue at a lower interest
rate and obligate .not less that
$250,000 and not more that
$300,000 annually from the
county's secondary road and
bridge gas tax money.
The county has offered to in-
clude the City of Wewahitchka
and Port St. Joe in the bonding
issue in' exchange for them turn-
ing their portion of the secondary
road and bridge funds over to
them to help pay for the bonds.
The county would, in turn, pave
roads within the two cities from
the bond money.
Port St. Joe receives $50,000
annually and Wewahitchka gets
$34,000 from the funds.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
suggested that the Board evalu-
ate the roads the two cities would
like to have paved, make any rec-
ommendations that they might
have and then let Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka decide if they


... ---K--_ ----. ..... .


I.


want to join their funds into the
bonding issue.
Wewahitchka City Commis-
sioner Dallas Jones, asked the
Board if they would have any in-
put concerning road paving speci-
fications on the roads to be
paved.
He told the Board that some
of the 'roads in Wewa were in bad
shape. 'We have some roads that
grass is growing up through."
The Board told Jones that
road specifications would be in-
cluded in the engineering, plans
for the road project and assured
him that he would not only know
what they are but they would also
be more than adequate.
Jones told the commissioners
they were just trying to get as
much as they could for their pay-
ing funds.
The City of Port St. Joe has
already submitted their list of
road paving requests to the
county. .
IN OTHER BUSINESS
Commissioner Nathan Pe-.
ters, Jr. cautioned the Board that
they were currently $8,500 over'
the $23,000 budgeted to pay the
City Attorney Barbara Sanders.


Peters noted that much of the
overrun was because of special
projects the attorney had been
asked to do.
Commissioner Warren Yeag-
er told the Board it was time to
readvertise the Board's attorney
contract, which expires in Sep-
tember. The Board unanimously
decided to readvertise for the ser-
vices.
The Board held public hear-
ings on two alley abandonment
at St. Joe Beach. They decided to
abandon the alley between Canal
Street and Bay Street and the, al-
ley between Pine Street and Ca-
nal Street, with the latter being
contingent upon one of the adja-
cent property owners receiving a
septic tank variance.
Rex Buzzett addressed the
Board speaking out against them
adding more office space to the
courthouse complex. He stated
that he thought it would be a
waste of taxpayers money, noting
that the county hasn't grown con-
siderably in population, yet the
courthouse keeps adding space
and people.
Decided to increase landfill
tipping fees from $25 to $30.
The Board decided to call,
for bids to pave the courthouse
parking lot and build a recycling
building at Five Points Landfill.
.* Bill Kennedy, representing
Preble-Rlsh, Inc., Consulting En-
gineers. told the Board it would
cost less than $2,000 to repair
the overflow problem at the .High-
land View water, tower.

Explains School Board 'Nay' Vote


Dear Editor:
Your attendance at the Au-
gust 1 School Board meeting was
appreciated. It Is always good to
have you there.
_I would like to clarify my neg-
ative vote on the school village
as reported in your August 3 edi-
tion. At a previous meeting, I had
voted against the purchase of two
school buses because we current-
ly have such a large inventory of
buses with many spares. I did not
consider we had justification to
raise additional local taxes to
purchase buses. Therefore, I sub-
sequently voted against the mil-
lage required to purchase the
buses. This part of the millage ob-
viously affected total millage

Coast Guard has tried in vain to
contact the vessel by radio and to
locate it with a searching C130
Hercules aircraft.
Still no definite word of verifl-
cation had been received as late
as noon Wednesday.
'SICK JOKE?
Sheriff McKelthen expressed
the fact that he would hate to
think that the report was some-
one's idea of a "sick Joke". The
Sheriff said he had "problems"
with the story. "How did they get
over 200 miles from where their
raft had washed up on shore two
days prior?" he asked.
The radio message had the
affect of spurring on the search
which had been lagging ,and
abandoned by the Coast Guard.
The message was picked up be-
tween 8:001- 9:00 a.m. by the
Jacksonville firm and relayed to
authorities.
Sheriff McKeithen said his
department and the Gulf County
Search and Rescue are continu-
Ing their search until a definite
solution has been arrived at what
happened to Frank' Stadler and
his 'nine year-old daughter, Mea-
gan.


A high speed chase by Port St.
Joe police officers, Gulf County
sheriffs deputies, and Franklin
County authorities ended in
Eastpoint Saturday when a stolen
1994 Ford Ranger, driven by
Robert Adam Cantley of Port St.
Joe rammed into a Franklin
County patrol car while attempt-
ing to evade a roadblock set up for,
him.
According to the Port St. Joe
Police Department the pickup
reportedly has been stolen some-
time during the day Wednesday,
July 23, from Frank Pate Jr. Park.,
The truck belonged to. Ewell
Industries of Panama City.'
While off duty Saturday,
Sheriffs Deputy Paul Beasley saw
the vehicle, driven by Cantley,
and reported it to the Port St. Joe
Police Department. Officer Mark
Cutler located the truck, and ran
the tag through the Division of


Motor Vehicle computer via'radio.
The tag didn't match, the Ford
Ranger it was displayed upon so
he attempted to stop the truck.
The driver refused to stop
resulting in the high speed chase
on Highway 98 east of Port St. Joe
to Franklin County, and through
Apalachicola before ramming into
the Franklin County' patrol car at
the road block in Eastpoint. At
times speeds during the chase
were in excess of 90 mph. Cantley
got around one road block set up
by Franklin County authorities ih
Apalachicola.
He Was taken to the Gulf
County Jail and charged with
grand theft auto, fleeing and
attempting to elude a police offi-
cer, and willful and wanton reck-
less driving. Other charges from
the Florida Highway Patrol and
Franklin County 'authorities are,
pending.


County Crews
Highway 22A In Wewahitchka,
was demolished by county work
crews last Wednesday. August 2,
after being condemned by Gulf
County Building Inspector
Richard Combs.
Combs told The Star the
building was condemned because
it failed to meet several state and
county code guidelines deeming it
structurally unsound for occu-
pancy.
Following rthe language set
forth in Gulf County's Nuisance
Ordinance. the property owners
were notified of ithe infractions
and given 60 days to respond.
According to Combs no response
was received so demolition orders
were. issued and carried out by
the county.
The structure, had been
labeled as a "hang out" by area
residents, many of whom were
suspicious that illegal drug activi-
ty was taking place there.
SGulf County intends to'file a
lien against the property to
recoup the estimated $5,000 in
-expenses to tear down the build-
ing and clean up the property

Historic Gc
There are more than enough
projects in and around Port St.
Joe to go around for those of you
who wish to give a little boost to
help it along. All of them are wor-
thy of your attention, your physi-
cal activity, your Influence or,
your money.
There is more than enough to
do for those who are so inclined.
One project which is very.
worthy is a project you don't hear'
very much put of. The Garden
Club has done much for this
community and continues to

for many years. In more recent
years, it has been the home of the
Garden Club: probably for as long
as many residents, who now live
in the city, can remember.
For the past four or five
years, the'Garden Club has been
trying to raise the money to put a
badly needed new roof on the
building. It won't come cheap.
and that is why the Club is going
public with their need.:
The Club has traveled the
route of trying to get a grant, or
historic funds from some source
or other. They have been success-
ful in getting $4,800 committed
to the roof project, but still need a
little more.
The Garden Club is a small
club with big ambitions for the
city. Because they are such a
small club, their resources are
limited.
They are asking you, the peo-
ple of Port St. Joe, to give them a
helping hand: anything to help
them get the roof replaced

Don't Get Ripped
OffIn Repairing
Storm Damages
If Hurricane Allison damaged
your home or business, there are
some things you should know
before hiring anyone to make re-
pairs. Florida law can help pro-
tect you from inferior, incom-
petent construction and substan-
tial losses. The Department of
Business and Professional Regu-
lation encourages you to take the
following steps before hiring a
contractor:
Hire only a licensed con-
"tractor. Ask for the contractor's li-
cense, address and references.
Contact your local building office
or the Department of Business
and Professional Regulation to
verify licensure.
Do not agree to obtain the
necessary building permits in
your name. Unlicensed contrac-
tors are not allowed to obtain
building permits. A building per-
mit ensures that your project is
handled by a licensed person and
that, regular inspections are
made.
Do not make advance pay-
mnt. do not pay in cash and do
not sign the work completion cer-
tificate until all work is completed
to your satisfaction. A frequent
problem after disasters is unscru-
pulous contractors who take de-
posits before starting work or fi-
nal payments before finishing.
Get itemized estimates. in
writing, from more than one. con-
tractor. Beware of contractors
who offer the fastest, cheapest job
If you act immediately.
,Doing business with an unli-
censed contractor can result in
faulty workmanship which may
have to be redone: at your ex-
pense. You can also be liable for
debts incurred on your behalf by
the unlicensed contractor who
does not pay the subcontractors
and then abandons your Job. Be-
cause unlicensed contractors
usually do not have insurance,
youmight be liable for any inju-
ries _tothe contractor or workers
on the job. Unlicensed contrac-
tors are often hard to locate be-
cause, without a license, the state
has no.,record of them. Licensed
contractors are required to meet
standards ,which are enforced by
the state.
Who To Call?
For referrals to attorneys spe-
cializing in various practice areas,
call the Florida Bar Attorney Re-
ferral Service at 1-800-342-8011.

cal year-end on June 30. The an-
nouncement was made recently
by Foundation President Norm
Gulkis at a meeting of the Foun-
dation's Executive Committee.
.'This is a significant mile-
stone in the history of our com-
munity," said Dr. Bob McSpad-
den, GCCC president and

:,tion. "The individuals who orga-
nized the Foundation had the vi-
sion to know how important the
community is to the college and
how important the college is to
the community. And through the
years, many individuals and busi-
nesses have been integral in our
success."
McSpadden said that the
GCCC Foundation has been an
effective tool for moving the re-
gion forward through advanced
education. He continued, "But we'
realize there is even greater po-
tential for future endeavors."
The Foundation hovered
around $1.4 million until a cam-
paign to build a Wall of Honor
with community contributors was
%launched, bringing in. $3.8 mil-,
lion to the Foundation. Additional
support has been added through
such events as the George G..
Tapper Invitational Golf Tourna-
ment, the Culinary Classic, and
individual contributions and be-
quests.

year, the Foundation held assets
of $7,172,351.58.

thann $225,000 in scholarships

tunities for the community and

DEP Ecosystem Workshops Set


Tallahassee-The Department
of Environmental Protection an-
nounced Monday a series of eight
public workshops August 22-31
to inform and encourage feedback
from Floridians on the state's Ec-
osystem Management initiative.
The 7:00 p.m. workshops include
viewing an introductory ecosys-
tem management video, a discus-
sion on the implementation strat-
egy and opportunity for public
comment. Copies of the draft plan
will be available during the work-
shops.
DEP Secretary Wetherell com-
mended the more than 300 peo:
ple who helped the agency devel-
op its plan. "Our agency received

cultural, forestry, mining, and
utility groups," Secretary Wethe-
rell said. "We think they. did a
great job and we are 'eager to
share and receive feedback on
our draft plan from the people of
Florida."
Ecosystem Management en-
courages the development of part-
nerships with the private sector

mental goals. The heart of Eco-

wardship where individuals take

hot. bats to take a commanding
lead in the game. They posted ten
additional runs by pounding out'
seven hits, four of which were
homers.
In the next three innings St.

combined effort, the pitching trio
allowed six 'runs from nine hits
while striking out seven and
walking five.

and Mitch Owens and Timothy
Gainous with one homer each.

Bonding

Discolored


Teeth


If you have a badly stained
or discolored tooth that is de-
tracting from your appearance,
ask your dentist about the
bonding technique. In this tech-
nique, the tooth will be pol-
ished and etched with buffered
phosphoric acid. Then the den-
tist will add a plastic, tooth-
colored material called com-
posite resin to the etched area.
This is more affordable than
some other techniques, such
as porcelain crown restora-
tions, which can be more es-
thetically pleasing. If cost
makes the difference, however,
bonding may serve your pur-
poses well.
Bonding is often recom-
mended for younger patients


whose teeth are not yet fully.
matured because the tooth
structure does not have to be
reduced. The pulp of the tooth
is still large and might be in-
jured if the -tooth were ground
down to receive a porcelain
crown. Later, after the tooth is
fully formed, a porcelain crown
or cap may be recommended
for strength as well as appear-
ance, or the bonding technique -
can be repeated to restore the
tooth to its natural color.

"Just what is triggering the
bacteria to be lethal now is the
puzzle," fisheries biologist and
Apalachicola River project leader
Charlie Mesing, said "We've recov-
ered sick bass from Willis Land-'
ing, Howard's Creek and White
River Slough on three occasions
and transported them live to the
University of Florida 'for analysis."
Mesing said the siek'fish were
sluggish, had open sores on their
bodies and many had brown, mu-
cous-type sores on their gills.
What's Causing It?
Mesing said veterinarian Dr.
Ruth Francis-Floyd at.the Univer-
sity of Florida had informed him
the bass were Infected "Inside and
South with Columnarls and Ed- "
wardslella tarda-both stress-
related bacterial diseases often
found in freshwater fish in warm
water. He said most of the bass
also had secondary Aeromonas
infections, usually seen as red-
dish sores on the sides of fish. By
itself, Aeromonas is rarely fatal to
fish.
'These bacterial diseases
usually thrive in warm, stagnant
waters," Mesing said. 'This has
been an exceptionally hot, dry
summer. However, these die-offs
have not occurred elsewhere in
the Florida Panhandle this year,
leading us to speculate that low
water levels associated with the
Corps of Engineers' experimental
'navigation' windows' may have
exacerbated the problem."
Navigation windows are de-
signed to hold water in Lake Sem-
inole, allowing the river and
sloughs to drop by about 4-to-7
feet. The water then is released to
allow barge traffic to move. up-
river with a flood of water.

is puzzling because in a normal

Dear Counselor,
;, ,,, have been, having! problems
at work recently. I like the people
I work with a lot. They are all hard
working, caring individuals who
give of themselves more than the
usual. Sometimes because of the
stress and pressure of the usual
work day demands, there is dis-
cord in the office. We.work togeth-
er fairly well most of the time, but
when we don't, the atmosphere at
work becomes intense.
The worst of it is that I do not
want to talk in a negative manner
about any of my .co-workers, yet
often I am asked questions that
are a lead into gossip. I don't like
to gossip; I believe it is morally
wrong. Do you have any ideas
that will help me discourage gos-
sip from going on?
I guess what I am saying is
that I think gossip hurts people
and I think people have enough
pain to cope with in life without
coping with the pain of gossip.
What can Iudo?
Stumped
Dear Stumped,
Gossip is created by someone
who is insecure and/or bored.
First, build the gossiper's self-
esteem by responding to attempt-
ed gossip with a redirection such
as,' "I'm real busy, but I've been
meaning to tell you that you look
great today." Redirecting can be

done in a positive manner
Through sincere comnplimnts, on
physical appearance, job perfor-
mance, social skills, etc. For
example, in your letter you men-
tioned that your co-workers are
all hard working, caring individu-
als that give of themselves, so you
can pay them compliments in'
these areas. Additionally, main-
taining your position as someone
who does not gossip will establish
you as a role model to your co-
workers.
When the atmosphere at work
becomes intense, try taking a
break. If you are a supervisor,
schedule frequent breaks of a'
short duration for you and your
co-workers. Promoting a better'
working environment-will reduce;
the discord in the office and may'
discourage gossip.
Finally, sometimes it is neces-
sary to offer assertive communi- i
cation. In other words, politely
and positively tell others that you
would rather not gossip and you
don't think that it is healthy.
You're right, people do have
enough pain to cope with in life
without gossip.
Sincerely,
Melissa Ramsey, '

Senior Citizens Show Partially Complete Building to Public


Senior Citizens members of Gulf County were hosts to the
general public as they showed off their partially completed new
center recently. Located just east of the Gulf County Courthouse
'the new building is a county-wide project, paying tribute to its
senior citizens.
The Center's board of directors and the organization's man-
ager, were on hand to offer guided tours through the structure.
Bill Lyles, chairman of the board of directors and Jerry Stokoe,
manager of the Center and its operations, were both on hand to
answer any questions about the building and [of course] to bask
In all congratulations offered for the accomplishments thus far
toward. the center's completion.
The center was begun some three years ago as a dream of
the late Stiles Brown, who started the fund-raising and lifted the
center from an idea to a project under way before he died. The
- center is to be named for Brown upon its completion.
" Stokoe ,aid the building has been completely dried in, with
construction work about half completed. 'We don't owe a penny
on what has been done thus far," Stokoe boasted. He went on to
say that the building has been the product of numerous projects
.to raise funds by the senior citizens, the support, work money,
donations of everything from cement blocks to roof joists by a
* combined effort from the County government, City governments,
duPont organization, and hundreds of private citizens.
Stokoe says the building will act as .a community building
once it is completed, with its considerable facilities available to
the entire county.


These residents, shown resting from among the 100 or so curious people who
their tour of Sr. Citizens new headquarters showed up for the organizations' open house
building, now under construction, were inspection by the public.

"He is like a tree planted by
streams of water, which yields its
fruit in season and whose leaf
does not wither. Whatever he does
prospers." (Psalms 1:3, NIV)
With great sadness, I cranked
the chainsaw and cut down our
maple tree in the backyard. Near-
ly a decade 'of memories flooded
my mind as the hum of: the saw
drowned the surrounding noise.,
But with my inner ear, I heard
babies crying, children laughing
and. changes come and gone.
When we moved to Lillian nearly
ten years ago, my wife's father
gave us a seedling of what he
calls a, "swamp maple". We plant-
ed it in our backyard and it sur-
vived close encounters of the
cutting kind with lawnmower and
weedeater alike. As a young sap-
ling, its limbs were often bent and
broken by young, adventurous
climbers from my own household,
as well as, the neighborhood, but
somehow the, tree survived and

flourished. Each fall its leaves
turned a brilliant golden yellow,
and it shed in the winter only to
bud a fresh, fuzzy green in the
spring. The tree was a symbol of
our lives and ministry.
Last summer a thunderstorm
took a major branch of the tree,
creating a split in the main trunk
of the maple. I worried that the
tree wasn't going to make it, but
it hung in there. An early sum-
mer drought this year, however,
revealed that the split was more
than surface. Cut off from the
nourishing trunk, half the tree
wilted and the leaves turned a
dusty, dry brown (herein is a les-
son about schism). Still, I didn't,
have the heart to cut it down. My
plans were to cut off the bad and
leave the rest, but another windy
storm, almost exactly a year from
the first, took care of it for me. All
I had to do was finish the job.

of losing a favorite apple tree
when he was a child. He had
picked apples from its branches',
climbed it, and rested under its,
shade. A storm pushed the tree
over and Claypool says he cried
and then sulled tip only to be told
an important lesson' of life by his
grandfather. His grandfather
pulled him aside and told him,
"when storms' knock down your
trees, sometimes you have to pick
the fruit and burn the wood". Ma-
ples .don't produce fi-uit, except
that clustered in the basket;
called memory.,
"Pick the fruit" and move on
is a pretty important lesson to re-,
member. Too many of us, too,
much of the time are trapped and
tripped up by tragedy and the re-
sulting pain. Life is sometimes
awfully hard, but the words of a"
song I recently learned are in-
structive. The words are, "mis-
takes and misfortunes, they come,
and go, but to try and fail is no
disgrace. Sometimes a rough and
rocky road can take you to a
beautiful place" (Wayne Watson,
"A Beautiful Place")
This fall .I plan to replant. I'm.
looking for a fruit tree.

Methodist
Set Study


Close Look at Holy Spirit

A short course entitled "Iden-
tifying the Work of the Holy Spirit
in Your Life" moves into its sec-
ond session, Sunday at First
United Methodist Church in Mex-
ico Beach.
The eight-week course, a mix-,
ture of lecture and discussion, di-
rected by Frank Healy, is open to
anyone who wants to attend. b-.
"There are a number of books
out about the Holy Spirit and it is
sometimes confusing and hard to
understand exactly where the
Holy Spirit fits in our lives," Healy
,.said. In this course, "as we look
at various scriptures about the
Holy Spirit in the Old and Newv
Testaments, we will write down
what we find. By the end of the
course, we hope we will have, 4
profile of the Holy Spirit and a
better understanding of how He
"works in our lives," he added.
Healy, a retired manager from
. General Electric and now Super-
intendent of Public Works for the
City of Port St. Joe, has been
teaching at First United Metho-'
dist of Mexico Beach for five
years.
The special Holy Spirit study
begins at 10:15 a.m. in the
church fellowship hall.


Nitrogen Is Very


Important Element


For All Plants

Most Important Ingredient To
Look For In Gardening Fertilizer


We all know that plants need
fertilizer. It's virtually impossible
to maintain your landscape and
house plants, or grow a vegetable'
garden without it. But, do you
really understand how fertilizer
works, how plants use the vari-
ous elements, and the basic
symptoms of specific nutritional
deficiencies?
Obviously, we add fertilizer to
increase soil fertility. That is, we
supply fertilizer to be sure plants
have the essential nutrients they
ieed for proper growth,. Since'
plants absorb these 'elements
from the soil, you may wonder
how much fertilizer they contain.
Surprising as it may seem, 95
percent of a typical plant's total
mass is made up of three ele-
ments that come from plain old
air and water, carbon, hydrogen
and oxygen. All the nutrients in
the soil, including the fertilizer we
apply, make up the remaining
five percent.
You probably already know
that plants need large amounts of
major elements and' small
amounts of minor elements. In
this article, I will. talk about how
plants use the major elements-
nitrogen, phosphorus and potas-
Nitrogen is probablythe most
important element in the whole
fertilizer complex. It's the basis
for all plant growth, because it al-
lows plants to grow compounds
called amino acids. Amino' acids
are the building blocks for pro-
tein. Protein is required by all liv--
ing things from tiny, one-celled
organisms to complex forms of
life. Every living cell, whether
plant or animal contains pro-
teins.
And, as I said, nitrogen ena-
bles plants to produce this vital
material. If a plant doesn't get
'enough nitrogen,' it will take the
protein away from its older leaves
and'move it into new leaves. In a:
nitrogen-deficient plant, the. old
leaves turn yellow, and 'the new
growth is smaller than normal.
Plants also need nitrogen to
produce chlorophyll, nucleic ac-
ids, and 'enzymes. They are vitally
important, because they allow
plants to convert sunlight into
food-a process known as photo-
synthesis.
The second major plant nutri-
ent is phosphorus. Phosphorus is
used to store and transfer energy
within the plant, and to form nu-,
cleic acids, which carry the
plant's genetic code. It is especial-
ly important when' plants are just
starting to grow, because it stim-
ulates the development of roots
and .the first leaves. Like nitro-


Roy Lee Carter
Agent


gen, phosphorus can move within
Sthe plant tissues. Deficiency
symptoms first show up in the
older leaves. They appear dull or,
dark green, and eventually you:
can see red, yellow or blue pig-
ments through the leaves, along
the main veins.'
The third major element is
potassium., Plants need potas-
Sslum to move sugars and starch-"'
es throughout their leaves and
Other tissues. It's essential for the
opening and closing of the plant's
stomata-the tiny holes in leaf
surfaces which allow plants to:
absorb carbon dioxide and re-
lease oxygen. As in the case of ni-
trogen and phosphorus deficien-,
cies, lack of potassium first
shows up on older leaves. The
'edges turn browi and leaf spots
inay appear.
I hope I've answered some of
' your basic questions about how
plants use the major elements in
the fertilizer you apply to your
landscape, house plants, or vege-
table garden.

Tough on Criminals


,Stance Resulting In


Lower Crime Rates

Sen. Pat Thomas Says It Will Pay Off
When Criminals Learn Fla. Means Business
EARLY CRIME FIGURES HINT TOUGH LAW WORKING
Serious crime was down 17 percent in the first half of this year in
Florida's capitol city, an encouraging trend Tallahassee Police Chief Tom
Coe attributes to community crime watch groups, bike patrols, and the
county boot camp which takes dangerous juveniles off the streets.
If the trend shown by the early statistics is true in the rest of Florida
the tough-on-crime lawmakers who took a lot of city media for passing
criticism from the yaahoo-liberal big tougher laws and building prisons
can,take a bow.
State:Sen. Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, answered that criticism (mainly
that lawmakers shackled future taxpayers with ever-increasing prison
costs) when he said following the regular session this year:'
"Heck! In the long run we're going to' save the taxpayers money
because potential criminals are going to learn that crime really doesn't
pay."
Thomas, as Senate President in 1994. began the prison reform pro-
gram that Republicans and conservative Democrats finished in the regu-
lar session this year. In Tallahassee, aggravated battery with a firearm
dropped from 28 cases to 11 in the first six months. Commercial bur-
glaries were down 20 percent, residential 15 percent, and auto theft cases
dropped from 492 to 420.
Whether Florida's tougher approach Is going to work, of course, is yet
to be shown, but the early results are encouraging.
Now that juvenile lawbreakers are getting the message the days of a
slap on the wrist and quick -return to the streets are over, there may very
well be a long-range savings to taxpayers via a slowdown of crime on the
front end of the system. Add to that the longer sentences adult crimihals
can serve in more prisons and you may have' a real deterrent in total
crimes committed. ,
Of course, education, job training and drug treatment followed by
"after-care" measures to help them stay on the straight-and-narrow path
are necessary ingredients in combat ting serious crime. Nobody thinks
Just locking them up and throwing away the key is the answer, but that
possibility must be present to teach the lesson that crime doesn't pay.
The happy thought, of course, is that by shutting down crime some-
what on the front end there will be enough money saved to do a humane
job of turning the individual hard core criminals around to more fruitful
lives.
Welfare reform may be just as promising as reforms in the criminal
Justice system, but it will take longer to assess any turn-around In that
unhappy situation. What the taxpayer has to look out for are those sure-
to-come efforts to derail any meaningful reform in the old failed welfare
system which,, in fact. has created most of the crime problem.
Gov. Lawton Chiles and U. S. Sen. Bob Graham are currently lead-
ing a fight to defeat a welfare reform,bill in the U. S. Senate that would
send Florida's tax money back to it In block grants to handle It's own wel-
fare program.
They claim that a growth state like Florida will be shortchanged by
the formula now which allows states to decide what to spend and the fed-
eral government matches it Some states with more lavish welfare bene-
fits get more federal matching dollars. :
Chiles and Graham want.a percentage increase for high-growth
states and Graham has an idea to base federal spending on the number
of poor people in the various states. ,... / ,
They're good ideas, of course,' but the present welfare system has
been around while Graham, now senator,' was governor for eight years
and while Chiles, now governor, was in the U. S. Senate.
They didn't see fit to go for those changes then. Why now? Could it
be that real reforms in the failed system are being proposed and have a
good chance of passing by the first Republican-controlled Congress in

years. Nawl True statesmen wouldn't do that. Huh?
Flor(da would-be better served if Chiles and Graham joined up with
U. S. Sen. Connie Mack, R-Fla., in seeing that welfare reform happens.
The old system is not worth saving. Let's put in anew one and come back
later to make changes in it if necessary. ,

Here's the Capitol News Round-up
There are four known dead and seven people are still missing at sea
in the wake of the one-two punch Hurricane Erin threw last week when
It swept across Central Florida Into the Gulf of Mexico, then slammed
back into the Pensacola area. Money losses were put at $390 million..
Gov. Lawton Chiles requested disaster designation for Escambia,
Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Brevard and Indian River counties,
claiming $20 million is needed in federal aid for damage to public build-
ings and $5 million for families with uninsured home damages.
The storm death Loll rose to four when the body of Elvin Rosa. a cook
on the gambling ship Club Royale that sank was recovered on a life raft.
The Coast Guard after rescuing eight other crew members on life rafts,
suspended the search four days later for the captain and a cruise official
who are still missing.
Also still missing early this week and feared dead are a man and his
daughter who were swept out to sea in an inflatable rubber raft with oars
from Cape San Blas in the panhandle and three family members last seen
leaving the Gulf Coast port of Venice Inlet in a 17-foot fishing boat.
OIL DRILLING BANNED ON SOUTHWEST GULF COAST ,
A $200 million settlement with nine oil companies lifted the threat of
offshore drilling along Florida's southwest coast from Naples to the Keys,
but state officials still must contend with lease holders in the gulf off the
panhandle. ./ r t '1 .
The agreement in a federal lawsuit announced by Interior Secretary
Bruce Babbitt was hailed by environmentalists and Gov. Lawton Chiles
as a victory for the protection of Florida's pristine coastline and an end to
the yearly fight in Congress to extend a drilling moratorium.

ROUND-UP

by Jack Harper

But state officials still must contend with leases owned by Coastal
Petroleum with drilling rights for a strip of gulf bottom land 10 miles off
the coast from Naples northward through the panhandle.
The Florida Cabinet has slapped a million dollar bond on Coastal's
threat to begin drilling off St. George Island near Apalachicola, but the
courts haven't decided if it has the constitutional authority to do it.
Environmentalists are crusading for the state to pay Coastal" for its
leases.
PROMISE KEEPERS COULD HELP
The phenomenon of thousands of men filling sports arenas in Florida
and around the country pledging as Promise Keepers to God and each
other to be better husbands, fathers and community leaders could help
restore family values.
One of the most prominent of them is,former Florida State University
football star Deion Sanders whose father abandoned the family years ago
in Fort Myers. '
"I don't care what they say about me when I'm through With sports.
I don't want to be' known as anything else in life but a great father,"
Sanders said in a Sports Illustrated article.
TURTLES COULD END BEACH DRIVING
A century-old tradition of driving and parking cars on miles of.
beaches around Daytona, Flqrida, is threatened by a; temporary Injunc-
tion Issued by a U. S. judge to protect sea turtles on the Endangered
.Specie List. I % :
U. S. District Judge Annie C. Conway banned nighttime driving and
parking automobiles on the 40-mile stretch of sandy seashore and set up
for both day and night regulations a "conservation zone" which extends
seaward from turtle nesting dune areas for 30 feet along the entire
Volusia County coastline.
Two New Smyrna Beach women called for a total ban on beach dri-
ving and parking, claiming vehicle traffic is killing loggerhead and green
turtles and many of their hatchlings.'
Conway found that daytime driving and parking on the beach did not'
result in the killing of protected sea turtles. She also rejected a request-
for lighting regulations on or near the beach, ruling she did not have the
authority to order a specific remedy to county officials.
FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS
Florida Attorney Gen. Bob Butterworth has produced a "top ten" list
of frivolous lawsuits prison inmates have filed against the state
Department of Corrections to convince Congress to pass a law controlling
them.
.- The top ten he listed included one of 30 filed by a man convicted of
killing a police officer after holding a 5-year-old boy hostage. He wanted
three pancakes, instead of two, to go with his orange juice at breakfast.
Another convicted murderer sued because lightning knocked out a televi-
sion satellite dish forcing him to watch a network program, which he said,
contained too much violence.

I PUBLKICOICE[S IIJ


Date: August 1, 1995

Memo to: John Q. Public

From': Cristie Taylor's Mom,

The following is a copy of a contract that was signed by'
Wayne Taylor at St. Joe Furniture Co. This contract involves a
"coupon book" advertising program that we felt could bring in-

new customers, as well as show appreciation to existing
customers. We know well that most of us love a bargain -
something for nothing even--. So, we expected this program
could create some good will and be fun. It would additionally
provide some temporary jobs for our area, and perhaps some of
those payroll checks would add to our local economy.
Unfortunately, it has not turned out as we hoped. There has.
been strong adverse communication on the part of a few
participants, and now something that could have been good for
our community has become divisive and hurtful.
Cristie has been with this program for ten years and has
worked through problems that occasionally arise in business.
But, never has she experienced a situation like has arisen here.
She will overcome this negative reaction. She has proven herself
a survivor several times in her life. Nevertheless, I hope it may
prove favorable to reproduce, a copy of this contract. I invite you
to draw a conclusion based on fact rather than what I consider
slander. I would also like you to know that if "merchants
promotions" .closes in our area it will happen-because Cristie has
not been able to retain a sales staff under the adverse conditions
that have been created. Perhaps orchestrated for that
purpose??? If they are not able to sell the book of coupons it
would certainly provide a way out of a legal contract fpr the few
who wished to renege on their agreement. Thank you.
