MFC Version

of Interpretation of Rules for Use
of Trawl Nets to Harvest Finfish
The Florida Marine Fisheries Commission continued efforts to
further limits the use of the Golden/Crum"trawl net in nearshore
and inshore Florida waters during their three-day session last
week.
At issue during the session was linfish. not shrimp, and
whether the olderi/Crum'nets could be used to harvest them.
The FMFC proposed rule states "Trawls are hereby declared to
be allowable gear.for the directed harvest of shrimp only," limiting
the catch of other marine species to incidental bycatch while har-
vesting shrimp.
The .Golden/Crum trawl nets were ruled to be in compliance
with the, Net Ban Amendment guidelines which allow the use of
trawl nets under 500 square feet by the Second Judicial Circuit
Judge Kevin Davey. Davey's ruling has been appealed to the
Florida Supreme Court by both the Marine Fisheries Commission
and the Florida Conservation Association (authors of the Net Ban
Amendment) where oral arguments are scheduled to begin August -.
31st.
Commercial fishermen voiced their objections to the FMFC .
version of the rule through their attorney Patrick Floyd who
argued that the commission's rule goes beyond the will of the peo-
ple when they passed the net ban amendment that went into effect.
July 1 of this year. .
He stated that the people expressed it was only necessary to
reduce the size of the trawl to be used whin three miles of shore
to 500 square feet of open mesh webbing, quoting the amendment
wording, "to protect saltwater finfish, shellfish and other marine
animals from unnecessary killing, overfishing and waste."
Floyd further contended that the group's own rules call for
them to establish scientific, economic or biological data to support
their rules' adopting process. He stated that they had no data to .
base their premise to ban the commercial harvesting of finfish by Nets hang unused and idle on the back of fishing boats

Gulfs Taxing Rate Shows Small Reduction

Retired Courthouse Bonds Gives Biggest Relief to Growing Financial Burden


The Gulf County Commis-
stoners have a surprise in store
for county residents when they
receive their TRIM notices next
week--call it an early Christmas
present if you will.
"Your county taxes are going-
down," that's what Board
Chairman Michael Hammond told
The Star as he gave a progress
report on the proposed .county
budget for 1995/96.
Millage rates will drop from
8.001 to 7.819 marking the fourth
year In a row that the Board has
either toed the line or actually
reduced the amount of money


Gulf County taxpayers -and busi-
nesses have had to pay for prop-
erty taxes.
According to Property Ap-.
praiser. Kesley Colbert, property
valuation in the county Increased
18 million dollars during the past
year. which means that county.
taxing authorities would have to
lower their millage rate in order to
bring in the same amount of dol-
lars they did last year. The County
Commission and the School
Board have lowered their inillage
rate below this line (roll-back
line), thus lowering taxes.


INCREASES
In spite of the decrease, sev-
eral areas of county government
will still see major increases in
their budgets for fiscal 95/96.
The largest increase will be paid
out for ambulance service as that
budget jumps from $160.000 in
94/95 to $300,000 in 95/96. The
jump is the result of the county
taking over the operations of the
South Gulf. County EMS from
Gulf Pines Hospital which was
being paid the -$1,60,000 to oper-
ate the service.
If all goes as expected the
Board should recover the budget


differences through charges for
the ambulance service, and it is
anticipated the ambulance service
revenues will offset expenses and
be able to make .the break even
point by the, end of the budget
year. -
The Gulf County Sheriffs
-office will also be the beneficiary
of increased budget expenditures
tallying up to $1,335,000. Four
new patrol cars and the addition
of one deputy. position will
account for most of the increase.

Road Funds

Discuss Ways to Make Best Use of Grant
Money To Finance Recycling Efforts


The City Commissioners of
Port St. Joe and the Gulf County
,Commissioners got together
Monday night in a special called
Interagency meeting to discuss
the county's proposed'road, bond
issue and the dispersement of
recycling grant money.
Gulf County, along with the
cities.- of Port St.;'"Joe and
Wewahitchka. have been negotiat-
ing over a planned three million
dollar bond Issue by the county.
The county has offered to take
over road paving and mainte-
nance responsibilities In both
cities in exchange for the two
cities pitching in their portion of
Secondary Road and Bridge funds
received from the state.
The City of Po0t St. Joe
receives $50,000, and the City of
Wewahitchka $34,000 from the
Funds, for a total allotment of
$84,000.
In Monday's meeting the
county board agreed to sign a
commitment with Port St. Joe
obligating them to pave and main-
tain their roads at least through
the 15-year duration of the bond-
ing issue.
RECYCLE MONEY
Port SL Joe and the Gulf
County Commission have been
haggling over $28,000 of recycle
grant money for the past few
months. The city contends that
the funds were'written into the
- 941/95 recycle-grant application'-..
and were therefore due to them to.
start construction of a, compost-
ing facility for city garbage in con-
junction with their recycling pro-
gram.
On the other hand the county
has argued that they have put
$165,000 into Port SLt Joe's recy-
cling program over the past sever-
al years through the recycle grant
money and could not remember
making ,a financial commitment,
to the composting program..
"Why don't we support one
program?" City Commissioner
Charles Tharpe asked. He pointed
out the grant was originally
drawn up because of the city's
program and he felt Port St Joe
had the only recycling program in
the county.
County Commissioner War-
ren Yeager explained the city was
committed to recycling garbage


while the county's emphasis was
on the life of a landfill. He noted
that the county was also, in the
recycling business. "Everything
that we can keep out of the land-
fill increases the life of the site,"
Yeager said.
City Mayor Frank Pate asked
the 'county board what they
intended to use the building' for
which they were accepting bids to
build at FiveLPoints Landfill.
County Solid Waste Manager
Joe Danford told the group its
would be 'used. to house a bailing
machine for the county.
Pate retorted, "We already
have one-why can't the county
use ours?" He added that he did-

It Was Hot
In Port St.
Joe, Too!
By golly, we thought it
was hot early this weekly
Then TV and the newspa-
pers started talking about
this part of Florida setting
a temperature record for
this time of year and it
seemed to get hotter, still.
The daily and hourly
media were right on target
t.hia ,time. It was actually
hot: hotter than usual in
Port St. Joe in the middle
of August.
Lynn Todd. in charge of
keeping all kinds of records
at the City's Wastewater
Treatment Plant, advised
us that it was a blistering
96 degrees Tuesday ... in
the shades
To add a little emphasis
to her report, she said her
records show that it was
only 79 degrees on August
15. 1954. Quite a differ-
ence, isn't it?
So, go ahead and sweat
and complain without apol-
ogies to anyone. It is truly
hot and is expected to be
for the next few days. Hot-
ter than usual for the mid-
dle of August. that is.


Insurance Commissioner Bill Nelson Gives Hope for Relief


Florida can expect some relief ing Commissioner for Florida told'
from its present property insu- a group of business men, insu-
rance dilemma before very. long, rance agents and bankers at the
Bill Nelson, Insurance and Bank- Country Club last Friday.


Brought to Port St. Joe by at-
torney William J. Rish, Nelson
told his 'audience his 'agency is
doing something about the prob-


Florida Insurance Commissioner Bill Nel- Al Scheffer [partially hidden by Wood] and
son is shown in animated conversation with Roy Smith, last Friday, during a dinner
Port St. Joe agents Sam Sweazy, Bill Wood, meeting at the country club.


lem which came to the forefront
three years ago when Hurricane
Andrew slammed into the Home-
stead area.
'This storm cost insurance
companies some $16 billion dol-
lars in damages and caused most
of them to announce plans to pull
out of Florida," Nelson said.
Florida tried to counteract
the lack of insurance coverage
available to its citizens by creat-
ing a quasi state-run insurance
coverage available to property
owners. The state-operated firm
was less than a desirable substi-
tute for the real thing, as Nelson
and several of the insurance
firms present both agreed.
QUESTIONS SOLVENCY
Al Scheffer, manager of Co-
stin's'Insurance Agency, speaking
for several -agents charged, "The
JUA [Florida. Residential Property
and Casualty Joint Underwriters
Association--JUAI was insolvent
and couldn't be depended upon
to pay any claims which might
arise.
Nelson countered with the in-
formation that the state was try-
ing to phase the JUA out of exis-
tence and lure established firms
back to Florida again. He said
two old established finns have al-
ready been lured back.
."In the meantime, while this
is being accomplished, we have
hiked the premiums on JUA poli-
cies and dealt with several banks
to unclenvrite a fund created to


take care of claims until this can
be accomplished," the Commis-
sioner said. He also pointed out
that the hike in premiums would
serve two purposes; it would cov-
Sr the slush fund being created
and it would encourage people to
return to the cheaper private sec-
tor insurance, allowing the JUA
to be phased out of business.
STORMS DETERMINING
FACTOR for AVAILABILITY
Nelson said this would be ac-
complished, hopefully, by the end
of the current year, but warned
that if Florida experiences anoth-
er catastrophic storm in the
meantime, the process will take
longer.
"Another factor involved is
building methods," the speaker
said. "We had nearly $250 million
losses from Hurricane Erin, just a
week or two ago and experienced
only 80 mph winds. Buildings
were just wiped out from shoddy
construction practices; in Hurri-
cane Andrew, too. When we in-
spected after the storm we found
building after building completely
demolished, while an older build-
ing alongside was hardly dam-
aged, simply because it was built
sturdier," he said.
ASK CONGRESS FOR HELP
Nelson said the state was
also asking congress to set up an
emergency fund to help in case of
a catastrophic emergency.
"A $30, $40. or '$50 billion
destructive storm would wipe out


the state's and private industry's
reserves and bankrupt every-
body," he declared. "We don't

Not Their Job

To Interpret and Enforce Rules
THE MARINE FISHERIES Commission has taken responsi-
bilities upon Itself, again, which the people of Florida didn't give
it, nor wish it to have. It has assumed the duties of interpreting
the Constitution of the State of Forida; and It's not doing a very
. good Job of it, we might add.
The MFC has interpreted the Constitution to say what it
wishes it said, rather than interpret its language literally, the
way most people do.
As tasteless as it is to us here in Gulf County, even we, hav-
ing a selfish viewpoint of what the document should say, aren't
as far off-base in our interpretation as the MFC, who should
know better. The document says there shall be no gilf net fishing
within three miles [not nautical miles! of Florida's shoreline. The
document exempts purse seines of 500 square feet. A Circuit
Judge in Franklin County has interpreted what the Constution
means as to its description of net size, but-the MFC doesn't even
accept that. They want to enlarge on the description by declaring
the 500 square foot purse seine can be used for shrimp only.
The Constitution doesn't say that; The only specific type
mentioned is a gill net.
WHY DOESN'T THE MFC just come out and say .in plain
language, "We want to determine what product is caught, how
many, when and where, period!" And also; 'We want to have the
power to deny the commercial fishing community from catching
any fish by whatever means!" ,
Such a statement would be more in keeping with their ex-
pressed attitude and it would save all 'of us a lot of time and
trouble, tilting at windmills.
In the meantime, the voters of the state, of Florida 'have left
the commercial fisherman an "out" in their infamous actions of
last November four, and left them loopholes by which, they may
continue to fish on a limited basis, if they, want to continue tiy-
ing to eke out a living with the smaller nets .
The voters only totally banned, the use of gill: nets within
three miles of Florida's shores. ,
That's another thing the MFC is trying to enforce: they' inter-
pret 'within- three miles'from shore' as three nautical miles,
which is actually three and three-eighths landmiles, the type
measurement understood by the majority of the people:-
Maybe we should interpret the MFC's authority as. ending
one-tenth of a mile south of the Georgia-Florida line and should
be limited only to the management of the pterodactyl!


Pay Attention

REPRESENTATIVE' ROBERT TRAMMELL spoke "off-the-
cuff' to the Rotary Club last week about the need of electing and
maintaining knowledgeable government spokesmen in Florida,
in an attempt to continue the kind of Florida we know from be-
coming something completely foreign to native Floridians.
He cited the net ban law as a case in point, saying the entire
state voted for the amendment, from Gainesville south.
'This is definitely doing "away with'ha part of Florida we all
have become fainillar' with 'and treasuree" Trammell said. He
went on to say that nasty; sweaty' fishermen, following their
trade don't fit in with the south Florida developer's idea of the
design they wish to develop for Florida-that of a money-making
mecca, with the tourists :as the supplier of that money.
FLORIDA HAS GAINED its reputation, initially, from the
"color" which surrounded the commercial fishermen and things
nautical, with the fisherman as the foundation of that picture.
Shucks, Florida has even been a mecca for the sports fisherman!
Trammell said. one of the hardest jobs he faces in' the legisla-
ture is convincing the people he comes in contact with in Talla-
hassee that natives of Florida, whose forebears have been here
for over a century, have property rights which they don't want to
give up.
FOR YEARS, THE state has trodden on the rights of proper-
ty owners in Florida under the guise of protecting the environ-
ment: Nobody wants to destroy their own property. 'Well, maybe
a. few crazy people would want to, but the larger majority of
property owners want their property to appreciate in value and
this isn't done by destructive means.
The environmental permits and rules now make it almost im-
possible to get a permit even to enhance the environmental stat-
us of a piece of property. .
Representative Trammell was right on target. Residents of
the state of Florida should pay close attention to who they elect.i
The integrity of our future depends on it.

Buddy Wiggleton squinted up
toward the hot blistering sun
without seeing or feeling the
piercing rays. Nor did he notice
the sweat already gathering above
his eyebrows. It was going to be a
hot. one! Buddy's glaze shifted to


the old wooden planks that made
up what was left of the right field
wall. He was so lost In thought he
didn't see Larry Ridinger beyond
that old fence pedaling his bike at
us' like a madman.
It was early. We hadn't
thrown the first pitch yet.
But we were poised at an im-
portant part, of our summer base-
ball ritual .......
"I'll be .... .." Buddy was
wrestling with his choice, "I'll be .
. .Al Kaline." That was o.k. Bud
could run a little, had a decent
arm, batted from the right side,


he could even grin a little like Ka-
line. He could "be" Al Kaline.
Our attention shifted to Bob-
by Brewer. "Yogi". It was a no
brainer. Bobby batted right hand-
ed and Yogi Berra, of course,
from the left side. But we made.
an exception in this case. As
eight years olds, the -preceding
summer, we'd started our little
league career. Mr. Millrainey had
put Bobby behind the plate the
very, first day and he had been
Yogi ever since.

he was on, he played short. "I'll
be Ernie Banks." Jack was tall
and slender and had good Ernie
Banks' Wrists. It was a natural
pick.
I was a St. Louis Cardinal
fan. I was a different player on
different days but always a
Cardinal. Musial was my favorite
but if I picked him I had to hit left
handed. "Red Schoendienst," I
announced proudly. I could hit
and play a little second base. And
Red switch hit so I could choose
which side of the plate I wanted
to bat from. I felt good about my
selection as we turned to Eddie
Barnhart.
"Mickey Mantle." I looked, at
Buddy quickly. He gave mean I-
can't-believe-it look before focus-
ing again on the right field wall.
Larry sat, still straddling his
Western Flyer, motionless like he
hadn't heard Eddie say anything.
My mind wasj racing! We had
picked the players we "were going
to be" that day for a year now. It
made the game much more inter-
esting and more real. I mean,
who wanted to stand out in an
old field all day and take ground
balls off the bat of Ricky Gene
Stafford and throw to Kenny But-
ler at first base. So we didn't. We
played at the Polo Grounds or
Sportsman Park. And the ground
ball was hit- to Red Shoendienst
at second ahd I fielded It cleanly
and threw to Gil Hodges at first to
nip Willie Mays by a step. Shoot,
in any given afternoon I've thrown
out Hank Aaron, Al Rosen, Ted
.Kluszewski, Ted Williams. Duke

Bell, Ray Boorie, Del Ennis. .1

old planks off of Robin Roberts.
Jackie coughed and shifted
his feet.
But we had rules! You
couldn't just be anybody You
had to be kinda' like the player
you selected. Eddie Bamhart was
a nice guy. We all liked him -
but he wasn't even close to being
the best ball player on this field.
He couldn't be Mickey Mantle!
Listen, Mickey could flat out.play.
I hated the Yankees. -tiev won
the World Series every year. They
beat my National.League guys all
the time. I pulled hard against
them. Mantle defied all laws of
baseball nature. He hit homeruns
where no one had hit them be-
fore. Even with leg problems, he
could out run most anybody :in
the league. He could -throw. He
played hurt, he played hard. And
he always got the big hit when
the big hit was needed.


Daddy talked about Dizzy
. Dean and Joe DiMaggio and old'
guys like that. Granddaddy ravedl
about Babe Ruth and Tris Speak-
er and declared loudly how real,
baseball was played back in the
"good ole days".
I listened politely, then point-
ed with pride toward Mickey Man-
tle. My Era! And you put him on
any team in any decade in any'
league and he would be a stand,
out. My Daddy and my Grand-;
daddy didn't' say nothing, 'cause
they knew I was right.

Would Japan Have Used "theBomb"Ift Had Develoed itirst YouBetch


I WAS PLEASED at the an-
swer to the current raspberry a
certain portion of the public is
giving the atomic bomb thing,
made by Kesley last week.
I wonder if Kesley knows it is
'impossible to reason with people
of unreasonable persuasion. I've
learned, during my 50 years in
the newspaper business that it is
an impossible task. If a person's
mind Is made up In a nonsensical
manner over something which is
perfectly rational to reasonable
people, one had best not waste
his time trying to talk to a closed
mind.
Narrow opinions are not go-
ing to be changed, no matter how
rational the position you are try-
ing to get them to accept.
Arguments in favor of drop-
ping "Big Boy" and his brother a
few days later are:
*It shortened the war;
*It saved American lives;


*It was America's answer to
Pearl Harbor, and
*We dropped the bomb before
the Japanese developed it.

THE JAPANESE had shown
their intention was to fight to the
finish. ours or theirs.
, Tommy.Thomas was being in-
terviewed on the radio the other
day on the same subject-should
we or shouldn't we have dropped
the bomb.
Tommy Thomas answered for
about a million American troops
who were in the. same position as
he at the time. Tommy was a


gunner on a torpedo plane, await-
ing the command to begin the in-
vasion of Japan itself. He told
how a torpedo plane delivered its
payload and the gist of his de-
scription was that the approach
to deliver the torpedo put the
crews and their planes in a posi-
tion which resulted in almost cer-
tain death.
'The bomb being dropped
saved my life, because I was in
that group of torpedo planes
which would have been the first
wave of the invasion force," he
said. To Tommy, dropping the
bomb was a welcome activity, as
well as to thousands of others,


getting in position to: invade.

THE PICTURE of the reunion
of Howard Rogers' and L. B. Nicli-
ols' unit at its reunion in last
week's paper is a case in point.
According to Howard, their outfit
was also waiting for the word to
invade. They were poised to make
that great leap and they were not
looking forward to it.
The dropping of the bomb
was a welcome bit of news to
them. It meant they could turn
around just 180 degrees from the
direction they were headed, and.
head for home

IT WAS A difficult thing to
have to do. I'm sure it was revul-
sive to the crews which had the
task of delivering the bomb. But
the one living crewman of the
Enola Gay said the other day that
although it. was a horrible thing
to see, he didn't regret being
there because of the American


lives it saved and the long war it
ended.
The Japanese, no doubt knew
they had lost the war, but they
had no thought of surrender. It
wasn't even in their culture at
that time. They fought to the.
death. As a result, they were giv-
ing the United States all the war
they wanted.

I WONDER WHAT decision
would have been made had the
Japanese possessed the bomb.'
Does anybody think they would-
have hesitated for a moment to
use it on us?
They didn't even give warning
for Pearl Harbor, resulting in
needless death and destruction.
They took no pity and gave no
quarter. No, they wouldn't have
hesitated to use the bomb--had
they possessed it-for a New York
minute.
It's notable to see that since
that day, the United States has


been in the forefront of trying to;
- make sure it doesn't need to be
used again, nor has it been used,
by the United States or any others
nation. But; we would hope the!
United States would use "Big:
Boy" again, if we found it neces-'
sary.,

THE DROPPING OF the
bomb has made the world more
civilized, we think. Think what a
deterrent it has been! Think how
many despots the threat of anni-
hilation has kept in line.
Teddy Roosevelt advised,
'Walk. softly, but. cahry a big
stick." Hiroshima and Nagasaki
are proof positive we have the
biggest stick and we have proven
we will use it.
I guess one would had to
have been there or lived during
the period leading up to 1945, ex-
periencing events then, to really
grasp the significance of the ne-
cessity of dropping the bomb.

department is working from each
of these directions to insure de-
pendable protection for property
owners in Florida: encouraging
and making profitable, insurance
coverage for a storm-prone' state;
getting the state out of the insu-
rance business and encouraging
sound construction practices.
"We're making good headway in.
this direction thus far, but the
'turn' from previous practices is
slow," he concluded.

offices in the courthouse received
minute increases in their budgets
except for the. Gulf County
Judge's office, which had''no
increase in its budget.
Workman's compensation
insurance jumped from $100,000"
to $145,000 and Medical
Examiner's expenses for the
county increased from $13,500 to
$18,500 as the 'county entered
into a long term contract with six
other counties in the 14th
Judicial Circuit for the service.
The largest single decrease
comes through paying off the
1966 courthouse bond issue,
trimming $65,000 from the bud-
get.
Some other decreases includ-
ed: courthouse maintenance
down five percent, solid waste dis-
posal down eight percent, and
county road and bridge' dropped
eight percent.
NeW money received through
state and federal grants, as well .:- ,
as an increase in state revenue .-
sharing, also help reduce budget
requirements. When the county recently took over the Ambulance Ser-
vice, a headquarters had tO be prepared for its location. The
S.B.A. Course Ambulance Service headquarters was placed back in its orig-

The FMFC countered Floyd's
arguments, insisting that the' Net
Ban Amendment gave them a
mandate to institute the new
rules.

both the county and the city to be.
in the recycling business. .
S"Port St. Joe has not received
any funds from the 94/95 recycle
grant," Pate said, "What are your
plans for the 95/96 funds?" he
asked.
Yeager suggested that Joe
Danford and City Public Woiks
Superintendent Frank Healy get
together and compare their pro-
grams. "Let's see what's going. to
be beneficial for all of us that
won't be overlapping the two pro-
grams, and get back together."
County Chairman Hammond
said that he couldn't find where
the Board had voted to commit
$28,000 to the city composting
program. "I know we talked about
it, but I can't find where the board,
committed itself to the program."
Tharpe pointed; out that
Danford helped Mr. Healy put the
program together.
The boards decided to follow
Yeager's suggestion and get back
together after Healy and Danford
met.


rules that would have a major
impact on local fishermen which
were approved by FMFC would
make it illegal to do recreational
shrimping, .make the use of try-
nets impractical, and limit trawl
net usage to. only otter trawls,
which use boards or doors to
open the mouth of the net.
In a March ruling challenging
Marine Fisheries Commission
,rules, hearing officer Donald
Alexander stated that the com-
mission doesn't have the authori-
'ty to adopt rules to conform with,
or 'enforce a constitutional
amendment. Commercial fisher-
men contend that the ruling
takes away; the MFC authority to
rule on trawling for flnflsh with
the Golden/Crum nets.
The proposed rules by the
MFC will go before the Florida
Cabinet- Wednesday, August
23rd, when hearings before the
Cabinet will take place.
Commercial 'fishermen have
been at odds with the .MFC for
several years complaining that
they have no representation on
the commission which they claim
by its makeup is weighted toward
the interest of sports fishermen.
Florida statutes (370.026) con-
cerning the makeup of the board
states. "No single interest group
shall dominate the membership
of the Commission."
The FMFC has not had a
commercial fishermen on the
commission 'since 1985, when
local fisherman Gene Raffield was
on the board.

Peanuts... America's Favorite Legume
Graceville-Whether it is boiled, fried, roasted or straight out of the
field, peanuts are a delicious, nutritious snack that most people can't
stop eating. As the late summer and early fall approaches, it's time for
Florida farmers to start digging that protein-packed peanut from the
ground so you can enjoy it on your table.
Peanuts and peanut butter are protein powerhouses providing 12
percent of the recommended daily allowance per serving. Peanuts and
peanut butter are good sources of essential vitamins, such as vitamin E,
niacin, B6, thiamin, and minerals, such as magnesium, iron, potassium
and calcium.
Peanuts are naturally cholesterol free. Nearly 80 percent of the fat in
peanuts and peanut butter is unsaturated fats-the "good" fat-which
can help lower LDL-Cholesterol levels in the blood.
Besides the nutritious aspects of the peanut, it's a legume loved by
all, kids and adults alike, just because it tastes so good. To enjoy this
year's peanut crop, try these exciting recipes or for more recipe ideas
write to the Florida Peanut Producers Association at P. 0. Box 447,
Graceville, FL 32440 or call (904) 263-6130.
"OLD FASHIONED" PEANUT BUTTER
Homemade peanut butter is easily made with an electric blender. The

Place ingredients in blender. With lid secured, blend until mixture be-
comes paste-like or spreadable (3 to 4 minutes). If necessary, stomp the
machine and use a rubber spatula to scrape mixture from the sides of
the container. Continue blending until desired consistency is reached.
NOTE: For crunchy style peanut butter, stir In 1/4 cup chopped roasted
peanuts after the blending 'is completed. Yields 1/2 cup smooth or 3/4

Oral Rehydration Solution for Diarrhea


Parents should give their 'chil-
dren an oral rehydration solu-
tion-preferably one mixed with
infant cereal-at the first sign of a
loose stool to avoid the potentially
fatal dehydration caused by diar-
rhea, a University of Florida re-
searcher advises.
The preferred solution may
be as convenient as your kitchen
pantry.(See recipe for Grandma's
Cereal Rehydration Recipe at end
of article.)
Elaine Esielion Francis, an
assistant professor of nursing at
UF's College of Nursing, inter-
viewed 30 parents with 72 chil-
dren, 46 of whom were enrolled
in six licensed day care centers in
Alachua County during a study of
how diarrheal illness affect fami-
lies. She also surveyed a dozen


day care center workers.
Francis found that parents
and workers were most con-
cerned with the causes of diar-
rhea, not its effects. They also
overwhelmingly attributed loose
stools to teething and foods, even
though diarrhea is usually cause
by infectious agents, primarily vi-
ral in origin in the United States.
Most of those questioned did
not understand the importance of
oral rehydration solutions which
replenish the body's natural bal-
ance of water and salt. These so-
lutions, which include Pedialyte
and Infalyte, were used infre-
quently or ineffectively by those
surveyed.
Sports drinks and apple
juice, popular choices among par-
ents, are too high in sugar and

"When a child has a loose
stool you don't know if it's going
to last a day and be mild or be a
serious threat that persists sever-
al weeks," she said. "Oral rehy-
dration solutions should be ad-
ministered at the first sign of
loose stools. If the diarrhea stops
and the consistency of the stool
changes back to normal, the oral
solutions can be stopped. The
whole idea is to prevent dehydra-
tion from the beginning at all."
Diarrhea is characterized by
increased fluidity, frequency or
volume of bowel movements. It
can be especially serious in
young children, who are at risk
for rapid dehydration, which can

lead to death. Signs of dehydra-'
tion include drowsiness, unre-
sponsiveness, prolonged crying,
loose skin, glazed, eyes, a de-
pressed fontanelle ("sft spot") at
the top of the head and a dry,
sticky mouth and tongue.
Cereal-based oral rehydration
solutions may even be better than
glucose-based solutions, Francis
said, because the glucose and the
protein in the cereal are present,
in a form that increases the ab-
sorption of sodium and water.
A cereal-based solution can
be made by mixing precooked
baby rice cereal with water and a
tiny bit of salt to a drinkable con-
sistency. Studies are showing ce-
real-based solutions given to
cholera patients shorten the du-
ration and lessen the volume of
frequent loose stools.
Not all children like how oral
rehydration solutions taste. Par-
ents can make them more palata-
ble by adding sugarless flavored
gelatin. The solution also can be
frozen in plastic ice cube trays for
older children to eat like at P6p-
Sicle. ,I
"By instituting home-based
or day care center-based oral re-
hydration therapy as soon as a
child begins to have loose stools,
dehydration can be. prevented
and children avoid having to go to
the hospital for treatment, which
,places a big financial burden on
out health-care system," Francis
said.
The cost of diarrheal illness
:in the United States is estimated
at $500 million annually, accord-
ing to the UF study, which was
funded by the Florida Nurses
Foundation. Children in day care
are especially vulnerable, even
when stringent .;state hygiene
guidelines are followed for diaper '
changes, because of the chil-
dren's close proximity and how
they interact.
"Day care owners must walk
a tightrope," she said. "When
children get diarrhea, they are
supposed, to send them home.,
On the other hand, they are sen-
sitive to the -needs of parents. I
had parents in my study who lost
their Jobs because they had to
stay home to care for their chil-.
dren after they were sent home
from day care with diarrhea.
"There is a tendency to attrib-
ute diarrhea to 'clean' causes like
teething. And I found a lot of
children ended up with 'weekend'
diarrhea because that was the
only time their parents could deal
with the situation."

Pyramid


Up Drear
From The Office Of:
Almost everyone dreams of
being financially independent and
being their own.boss. While some
achieve this dream, others let
false promises of easy money
blind them to the pitfalls of pyra-
mid schemes.
A pyramid scheme is an' lle-
,gal.scam based on many people
at the bottom of the pyramid pay-
ing a few people at the top for the
chance to move to the top of the
pyramid and receive payments
: from later recruits. A typical
.,scheme operates like this:
A pyramid might have four
levels, for instance, starting with
one slot at the top, two slots im-
mediately below that, four below
that, and with slots on the bot-
tom. Each slot represents an "in-
*vestor:"- In orde trio biyifiit' the'
bottom level, each of the eight in-
vestors must pay $1,000 to the
individual at the top. That person
collects the $8,000 payoff and
leaves the pyramid.
In order for the two not at the
S top of the pyramid to collect
$8,000 each. 16 new Investors
must be recruited. When they get
paid off and leave, 32 new inves-
tors must be recruited to pay off
the four now at the top. So as
each group at the top is paid off
i and drops out, twice as many
new investors are needed each
time at the bottom to pay off the
new group at the top.
Since the pyramid grows geo-
metrically, the point soon c9mes.
*where it is impossible for inves-
tors to receive the promised pay-
S 'off. After 10 cycles, 8.000 inves-.
tors would have to be recruited.
After 20 cycles. 8 million new par-
ticipants would be needed. After

Two Arrested Following

Cross Burning Incident


Two' Gulf County men were
'arrested this past week for alleg-
edly placing a cross in the yard of
a fWhite City couple and attempt-
ing to set the cross on fire. Sher-
*iffs deputies responded to the'
scene around 11:25 p.m. last
Wednesday night after receiving
the call.
During the Investigation, offi-
cers learned the cross had been
placed in the couple's yard by
Robert Brian McLeod, 20, and
Robert James Hicks, 27, both of


White City.
The two were charged with a
hate crime, but because the cross
was not burned, the charge was
only enhanced to a first degree
misdemeanor. The two were held
overnight in the Gulf County Jail,
but were released the following
day on a conditional release by
Judge Robert Moore.
Sheriff McKelthen said about
the incident. "This is the type
nonsense that causes and stirs
racial unrest and it will not be
tolerated."

MOST BAD BREATH
CAN BE CONTROLLED
Once considered an almost unmentionable subject, bad breath
is now more openly discussed. There are many possible causes
of bad breath and therefore many different ways to control it. If
it is a problem stemming from a- condition in the mouth your
dentist can suggest an effective method to lessen or even
S eliminate it. Certain mouthwashes and other products can be
useful in everyday care.
Other causes of bad breath can come, from the stomach or
luhgs and in some cases has been related to emotional stress.
Once the cause has been determined a way can usually be found
to stop it. Do not be afraid to discuss bad breath with your
Physician or dentist. .

Football In FullPads For '95 Season


Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka
have been forced to deal with the
same thing other college and high
school football teams have had to
deal with-the extremely "HOT"
conditions. Temperatures in the
high '90's have forced coaches
and players to avoid heat exhaus-
tion with more breaks during
practices, so coaches have not
been able to get everything
accomplished that they need to be
prepared for in the upcoming sea-
son. .
SL Joe has only 21 players on
the varsity squad but 10 defen-
sive starters are returning and
nine offensive players return from
a successful 7-3 team a year ago.
The Tiger Sharks' strength will be
their speed with one of the fastest
teams in St. Joe's history.
Experience will be another
strength as the team returns
almost a full seasoned squad.
Practices began August 7th,
with three weeks to prepare for
,the Jamboree which starts at 8:00
ip.m. EDT August 25th in Tommy
Oliver Stadium in Panama City.
Port St. Joe will play the first
quarter against Mosley and the
third quarter against Rutherford.


The Tiger Sharks are looking
for another successful year and
hopefully step to the next level.
The Sharks will also field 25
Junior varsity players this year.
The Wewahitchka Gators


return 15 players from a team
that posted a successful 8-2 sea-
son last year. Like the Sharks
they began practice on August
7th in preparation for the '95 fall
season.


' Instead of a jamboree the
Gators will host a Kickoff Classic
next Thursday, August 24th
against Rutherford's Junior varsi-
ty. The classic will kickoff at 7:00,
p.m. CDT.


Enjoy Great Freshwater


Fishing At Night In Area


Anglers looking for a different
freshwater fishing opportunity
may want to try fishing at night.
In addition to being a good time
to fish, it also allows you to es-
cape the oppressive heat of a day-
time trip..
Florida Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission fisheries bl-
ologist Rich Callteux said per-
haps the most popular, type of
nighttime fishing throughout the
panhandle is by flyrodders after
bluegill and shellcracker. He said
the bait of choice is small artifi-
cial popping bugs.
Callteux said fishing for
largemouth bass can also be good
at night. Hq said anglers tend to
use the same type of artificial
baits that they use in the day-
time, such as plastic worms and
chugging" surface plugs.
Some anglers also fish for
striped bass at night on lake Tal-

Match Results
The Gulf Rifle Club held their
monthly PPC and FPOA Bullseye
Match on Saturday, August 5th.
In the PPC match, Sam Hayslip
won in the law enforcement divi-
sion, with Dale Patton taking sec-
ond place. Brian Upton won the
first place trophy in the civilian
division and David Whitfleld took
second. In the Bullseye Match,
Whitfleld won, while Upton fol-
lowed in second place. Whitfield
had the highest combined score
for the two matches and was pre-
sented (he 'Top Gun" trophy,
beating out Hayslip by only one
point.
On Sunday. August 13, the
rifle club held two 60 round
bullseye matches. The first
match, restricted to 22RF caliber,
was won by Whitfleld with Patton
finishing behind him. The second
match, open to any CF caliber
was also won by Whitfield and
Upton trailed him in second.
On Sunday evening, August
20th, the Gulf Rifle Club will hold
a Hunter Pistol Metallic Sil-
houette Match. Shooting will start
at 6:00. Any common handgun
caliber may be used (22 RF, 38
Special, 357 Mag, etc.), and the
match will consist of 40 rounds
fired at four sets of steel targets.
All handgun shooters are inf-
vited to shoot in the matches. Ad-
ditional information can be ob-
tained by calling John Fadio at

quin and Lake Seminole. He said
those who go at night usually fish
from dusk until 10 p.m. or so,
tossing large plugs or fishing live
shad. In fact, the florida record
striped bass that stood from 1979
until 1993 and weighed 38-
pounds. 9-ounces, was caught by
a Sneads man casting a plug in
Lake Seminole after sundown.
Catflshing at night is growing
In popularity, at least among fiat-
head catflshermen on the Apa-
lachicola River. A growing contin-
gent of fishermen have learned
that at night 'boating traffic set-
tles down on the "big river," as
it's known locally, and by fishing
the holes and deeper channels
they can catch flatheads with reg-


ularity using stout tackle and live
bream as bait.
Fisheries biologists have
heard of quite a number of flat-
heads weighing from 25-32
pounds that came from the Apa-
lachicola River this spring and
summer, and many were caught
at night.
On the safety side, Cailteux
suggests for those who fish at
night to fish with a companion
and wear a life Jacket. In addi-
tion to having legally-required
lighting on their boats, he said
it's probably a good idea to keep a
strong spotlight handy for spot-
ting stumps or.snags and locating
other boats.

.Trammell Sees Need for Qualified (not Popular) Men In Government


Representative Robert Tram-
mell and Dr. Tracy Clemmons'
were speakers at the Rotary Club
Thursday at noon, with two dif-
ferent messages.,
Dr. Clemmons is the director
of'lorida's Sun and Services and
in this capacity has jurisdiction
overthe Billy Joe Rish Recreation
Center for handicapped people on
S. t. Joseph's Peninsula.
He said activities .are in
progress to enhance the use- of
the, park, after a threat made to
close it a year or two ago. "Before
too much longer, this park will be
filled to capacity with handi-
capped people from all over Flori-
da, every week end from May to
October," he said.
The state agency in charge of/
such matters has improved the
facilities here arid this year It hasQ
been host to nearly' 100,000
handicapped people. 'We're mak-
Ing sure all agencies eligible to
have thefr -people use the park
know of its facilities," he said. He
told of more improvements and
more use, to come.

S.My husband recently retired
after a 50, year career with the
same company. He was success-
ful, in fact he waited five extra
years to retire.. We always had a
very good marriage and enjoyed
each other although we never
were able to have children. Now,
after six months of his retirement,
I think I'm ready to string him upl!
He used to help around the
house. Now he has become mes-
sy, making messes and demands
to be waited on hand and foot. He
will sit and bang the arm of his
chair until I come find out what
he wants. (Sometimes I act like 1

Dear Living:
Your husband may be experi-

This is something which people,
especially men who have taken
their careers very seriously, often
face He may feel like something
very important has been: .taken
from him,. He may be depressed


many of whom don't think like we
do," he said.
The lawmaker said he was
listening to a tape recently, made
back when Billy Joe Rish, of Port
St. Joe, was on the Judicial Com-
mittee of the Legislature. "Most of
the people spoke without an ac-
cent, like we do. Today, I and,
maybe one more on the commit-
tee, talk 'real talk'. The rest of
them sound funny," he illustrat-
e d .. ... .
Trammell told the club that it
is necessary for Floridians and
other Americans to begin to start
relying on themselves and not de-
pend on the government to take,
care of their needs. "Our fathers '
like to remind us of the big de-
pression; how they managed for
themselves. People today need to
become self sufficient and stop
looking to big government."
Trammell said both major po-
litical parties today agree, 'The,
system ain't working." He said
both parties also recognize there
is, no easy fix. "Our forefathers
didn't come to America because
they would have it made," he
said. "They came because at least

Head Lice
One of the most common
problems to be encountered in
elementary schools is head lice.
Don't panic, anyone can get them.
and they are treatable.
Head lice are tiny grayish-tan
insects that live and breed in the
hair. Their eggs or nits are tiny
white specks that attach to the
hair close to the scalp. They can
be spread by direct contact or by
sharing clothes, hats, combs,
brushes, etc. A sign to look for is
intense itching of the scalp.
When head lice are discov-
ered. treat the hair with a Pedicu-
licide such as Nix or Kwell, or,
contact the Gulf County Health:
Department for instructions. Be,
sure to remove all nits with a fine
tooth comb. Wash all bed linen,
towels, clothes, .,etc. Heat from
dryer is sufficient to kill,.nits. and
live lice. Vacuum exposedcarpet,
upholstery, and mattresses, and
throw away the bag.
For further information, con-
tact Gall Blackmon. RN. Health
Services Project nurse at 229-
6940.


Parents Make The Difference
Along, with new shoes and
new pencils, your,chil,' may need
some new habits this year. Here
are,things your child can do to
get off to a great start this year.
Set goals. Students who do
best in school have both short-
and long-term goals. Whether-it's
earning an "A" in math or prepar-
ing to become a doctor, your child
needs goals to keep him on the
right track.,.I -.
eTalk about school every,
day. When your child knows that
you think school is Important,
he/she will take It-more serious-
ly. To get the conversation flow-
ing, you might ask. 'What was
the biggest challenge you faced
today?"

'Do nothing out of selfish ambi-

September A Busy


Month Planting Annuals,


Ornamental Shrubs.

Still A Lot Of Warm Weather To
Encourage Insects and Diseases


September is a very busy
month for dedicated garden hob-
'byists in our sunshine state. A
new vegetable gardening season
is here. Now's the time to make
preparations for planting annuals
and ornamental shrubs. Also,
this is a good time for a general
cleanup of home grounds. Since
warm weather is still with us, we
need to continue to be watchful
for insect and disease problems.
In this article. I will talk
about some garden projects that
need attention at the beginning of
the fall gardening season. My in-
formation was provided by Exten-
sion Urban Horticulture Special-
ist Dr. Robert Black of the Uni-
versity of Florida.
If you want a flower garden
this fall. now's -the time to decide
on a location and start preparing
the soil. You should try to locate
the garden bed in an area that re-
ceives full sun for at least half the
day. If possible, stay away from
large trees. Tree roots will quick-
ly use any nearby fertilizer and
water. Therefore, you want to
grow your flowers in a spot where
trees won't compete for soil mois-
ture and nutrients.
Florida gardeners may choose
from a wide selection of attractive
annuals for fall planting. Some of
the hardy species, which will tol-
erate cold weather, include Alys-
sum, Condytuft, Dianthus.
Baby's Breath. Verbena. Phlox.
Calendulas, Petunias, Pansies,
Snapdragons, and Sweet Peas.
All of these, which can be planted
in late September, should be
readily available at most garden
centers throughout our state.
During September and Octo-
ber. a substance called gibberellic
acid is often used on camellias.
When properly employed, gibbe-
rellic acid Increases flower size.
and produces blooms much soon-
er than would be possible without
the treatment. Encouraging early
flowering of camellias is a good
idea because it minimizes the
Danger of freeze damage and
helps insure an abundance of
blooms.
If you're Interested in trying
gibberellic acid on your camellias,
here's how. First, select a well-
developed flower bud. Remove
the growth bud that you'll find
growing next to the flower bud.
When you've done this. you'll no-
tice a small cup-like place where
the growth bud came off. Fill this
cup with one drop of the acid so-
lution. Usually. you'll notice a dif-
ference in bud size between treat-
ed and untreated camellias, in
about a week.
September is the last time
you should prune poinsettias. As
we've pointed out previously.
poinsettias should be pruned reg-
ularly during spring and summer
growth, to develop more compact
plants with an abundance of
showy bracts. But, you should
not prune after September tenth


because you'll reduce flowering
by removing buds that begin de- "
veloping about that time. If you'd
like to prune your poinsettias
once more, do it no. Cut back
the new growth that's',about 12
inches long, leaving at least four
leaves on each shoot. But. as
we've said. do no further cutting
after the tenth of this month.
Finally, don't relax your
guard against lawn and ornamen-
tal pests. It's still hot enough for
Insects, like scales, whiteflies.
mites, aphids, and caterpillars, to
cause serious ornamental dam-
age and sod webworms and fall
armyworms could still injure your
lawn. Also, the disease brown
patch might Infest your lawn-
grass. If you notice any of these
problems, start control measure
immediately. For specific control
advice, check with your County
Extension Agent.

Dr. Sheila Eyberg, professor
of clinical and health psychology
in UF's College of Health Related

she developed to significantly de-

olds with oppositional defiant be-

this behavior have: frequent epi-

"Hopefully, this therapy will
teach parents how to like their
children again and to regain con-
fidence in themselves as parents,"
Eyberg said.

Sen. Harden Says


"No Excuse--I


Just Screwed Up"

Failed to Seek Medical Advice to Combat
Depression He Was Experiencing
YOUNG SENATOR SHOULD KNOW WE'RE ALL A LITTLE CRAZY
This old reporter and Uncle Clem Rednek over on Flat Creek in
Gadsden County want that young senator in West Florida whose mama
turned him in for a mental checkup to know that all of us are a little crazy
and it only makes life a little more interesting..'
"Tell him not to take It personally. They're not after him. They're jest
trying to shoot down the airplane," Clem said.
It sounds ... well crazy perhaps ... but that's what the World War II
shrinks told Clem when he was a tail-gunner in a Flying Fortress drop-
ping bombs over Germany and trying to get back
Harden. s In a similar situation. Clem says. As a state senator there
are a lot of people who would like to shoot him down, but It's the name of
the game-politics.
Perhaps the most dramatic scene in old Taxahassee this summer was
the sight of 35-year-old state senator Robert Harden. R-Fort Walton
Beach, with;hands clasped over his face In a news media interview
explaining his erratic behavior waA due to a common mental illness.
depression.
Harden said he suspected he had a problem several years ago but
avoided dealing with it for fear any attempt to get help would quickly
become public knowledge.
He tearfully told reporters he was paralyzed by indecision and too:
embarrassed to cope with the problems created by his failure to act. "It's
not an excuse...l just screwed up," he said after revealing his mother had
him involuntarily committed to a hospital overnight for a checkup under
Florida's Baker Act. ....
The symptoms he described are common to depression.
His problems are misdemeanor charges for writing $225 In worthless
checks at a Tallahassee Publlx and, about the same time in April, his car
was repossessed from the Senate parking garage for failing to make his
monthly payments. In June he had his driver's license suspended for fail-
ing to maintain auto insurance and he has been unexplainably absett
from his office.
"Ain't none of that fer stealing state money which is the national pas-
time and cardinal sin of politicians.," Uncle Clem pointed out.
"Tell the young'en if that's the worstest he's done, don't worry about
it. Voters will understand." Clem said.
Harden doesn't have to look very far to realize we're all a little crazy.
Gov. Lawton Chiles quit.the U. S. Senate with a case of "the blacks" that
he took the'drug Prozac for before he ran successfully for governor -
twice. That's where we get our Prozac grin jokes. And veteran Gainesville
senator George Kirkpatrick is such a hyper-sensitive, low attention span
legislator that he just can't sit calmly in his seat. He has to be up moving
around the floor.
This old reporter has had two children who suffered from spells of
depression and I'll bet most families have had similar experiences. We
just don't talk about it much.
The encouraging fact is that it is treatable.
Harden said he doesn't know if he will take the drug, although a doc-
tor has prescribed it for him. He said he might just "tough it through."
His hesitation is understandable because the mental health estab-
lishment has long overdone it by wanting to classify too many common
behavior problems as mental disorders... for more profits and power you
know.
But me and Clem say he should go ahead on this one, take his med-
icine and go'fishing in one of those bays over in the western panhandle.
And if somebody says you are crazy...well. Join the club and remember
it ain't "personally."

Here's the Capitol News Report
Although Thomas Jefferson once dlid 'spending tax money 'to advo-
ate.causes not favored by the taxpayer is odious and unconstitiitional,
Florida school superintendents are getting $1 million for training pro-
grams that help boost their salaries.
That's up from $200,000 in past years even though government
watchdog groups say the tax money would be better spent on classroom
teachers and students instead of high level bureaucrats.
The Florida Association of District School Superintendents also
received about $500,000 from local school districts for the dues of Its 67
members-45 elected and 22 appointed.
"It boggles the mind," Clay County Education Association President
Nancy Green told the Florida Times Union newspaper.
Appointed Education Commissioner Doug Jamerson boosted the
amount going to school superintendents last year and Frank Brogan, the
elected education commissioner who replaced him, continued the policy.
"It's asking for more tax dollars to get more tax dollars," complained
Florida TaxWatch president Dominic Calabro.
The association spent more than $25,000 in taxpayer money last year
to lobby the legislature although a 1993 law prohibits the use of state
money for that purpose.
The association also spent about $400.000 for a two-day training
seminar that offered $2,000 salary bonuses to elected superintendents
who attended.

zen's assistance office.
The office, which routinely tracks correspondence and opinions from
constituents for the governor, reported 26 telephone calls were made to
the office in two days after the story was published in a St. Petersburg
newspaper, then in other dailies.
Florida Parole Commission chairwoman Judith Wolson ordered an
immediate investigation into the case by the commission's general coun-
sel William Camper. Sen. Charlie Crist. chairman of the Senate Ethics
Committee, said he will propose a bill to abolish the parole commission
which is no longer needed under new laws that mandate prisoners serve
85 percent of their sentences.
According to the story., Willoughby Turner Cox Ill, convicted of DUI
manslaughter, was released from prison in February, 1994. after an
attorney from Chiles' office (Mark Schlakman) at the request of Cox's
mother Barbara called the parole commission several times.
Chiles has denied any complicity in the case, but after the calls from
his office, then Parole Commissioner E. Guy Revell set up a special hear-
ing and Cox-who had served two years of a 10-year prison sentence was
released.
SHRIMPING RULES EASED: Shrimpers will be able to continue to
use specially designed trawl nets they designed to comply with the state's
fishing net ban under a plan approved by the Marine Fisheries
Commission.
The nets stay within the 500-square foot limit for trawl nets as spec-
iflied in the constitutional amendment that brought in the ban. but has a
smaller opening which allows more net room for shrimp.
Environmentalists want to retain the larger openings.
A circuit court Judge has allowed the smaller openings, but the rul-
ing has been appealed to the Florida Supreme Court. The commission
voted to ask the cabinet to allow the smaller snouts on nets until the high
court rules on the issue.
The commission will also ask the governor and Cabinet to lift a closed
season on redflsh during their spring spawning months and to reduce a
27 inch size limit to 18 inches.
Another proposal sets up a closed season in February on spotted sea
trout and a recreational bag limit, of seven trout in North Florida waters
from the Suwannee River to the Alabama border.
A closed season In November and December and a bag limit of five
trout are proposed in other state waters.

to the states, based on their geo-
graphict size and number of li-
censed anglers. '
MThe Game and Freshwater
Fish Commission's share last
year for managing freshwater re-
sources was nearly $2.3 million,"
said Bob Wattendorf, the !GFC's
Assistant Director .of Fisheries.
"These funds constituted about
25 percent of all monies spent by
us on freshwater fisheries and
boating enhancement work.".
In Florida, as is the situation
.in most coastal. states, monies
must be divided between the
GFC, which manages freshwater
and wildlife resources, and the
Department of Environmental
Protection, which manages salt-
water resources. The total state
apportionment last year was for
slightly over $5 million.
He said the funds are used
on a 3:1 matching basis, which,
means for every $4 spent on an
eligible Sport Fish Restoration
project, the state is reimbursed
$3. '
Wattendorf said, "Sport Fish
Restoration monies areas used to
operate and manage seven Com-
mission impoundments In north-
west Florida totaling over 1,400
acres. These lakes now produce
over four times more harvestable
sport fish than prior to intensive
management."
And they're heavily used. A
1993-94 creel survey showed that,
anglers spent 1.164 hourses, per
acre per year on one of the lakes,
while the average time spent. on
Sunmanaged natural lakes is 35 -
50 hours per acre per year.
He said Sport Fish Restora-
tion funds are also important for

resource management. programs
on panhandle rivers and lakes.
Wattendorf. pointed to the Och-
lockonee River project where a
drawdown of Lake Talquin was
initiated iin 1991 and game fish
harvests radicallyI improved by
fiscal year 1993-941.
Other activities) supported by
the funding involve building and
maintaining boat ramps; provid-
ing aquatic education and out-
reach for the public; implement-
ing an urban pond program; and
until this year, building fish at-
tractors. Due to a declining state
budget, he said the. construction
of fish attractors has been
dropped, this upcoming year.
Sport Fish Restoration funds,
also make possible the work of
fisheries biologists at the Black-
water Fisheries Research and De-
velopment Center near Holt. Their .
work has led to better production
and rearing techniques for both
largemouth bass and striped
bass.
A provision of the law that
Wattendorf said is especially im-
portant says that states which
participate can not' divert their
share of the money, 'or revenue
from fishing license sales, to oth-
er non-fisheries related projects.
"This is an angler and boater
guarantee that fishing license rev-
enue as well as excise tax monies
are expended to benefit them,
thus making Sport Fish Restora-
tion the premier example of a
user-pays, user-benefits program
in the nation," he said.
