Crew from Organized Fishermen of Florida oversee loading of surplus nets for St. Joe.


Commercial fishermen from around the
county have been gathering in the parking
lot of Raffield's Fisheries this week to part
with what has been the tools of their trade
for centuries-their nets.,
The Florida Department of Labor was in
Gulf County to collect 'commercial fishing
nets as a part of the state's net buy back
program. The nets were deemed useless
when Florida voters passed a constitutional
amendment in November of last year ban-
ning the use of most commercial nets in
waters bordering Florida's coastline. The
net ban went into effect on July 1 of this
year.
One commercial fishermen was quoted
as saying, "It's kind'a like going to the
funeral of your best, friend."
Site manager Jim Saverman told The


Star the state would be collecting the nets
through Thursday of this week before mov-
ing on to Franklin County Friday.
The state is paying a minimum of $500
and a maximum of $3,500 for the nets
turned in tp them. Some gill nets and trawls
are being purchased for as little as $500 for
600 yards of net while purse seines and
beach seines are worth $3.500 under the
guidelines of the program.
The number of nets each fishermen can
sell to the state Is based on a formula pro-
portional to the amount of revenue they
derived through net fishing the previous
year.
According to Saverman the fishermen
will receive a voucher for their nets and
should receive payment within two weeks
from the state.


Cabinet Overrides MFC Rule Proposal

Fishermen Allowed to Modify 500 Foot Purse Seine to Catch Species Other Than Shrimp


A single drop of water.
dropped on what has become the
parched desert of commercial
fishermen in Florida Tuesday,
with a ruling by Governor Lawton
Chiles and the Florida Cabinet.
The ruling was, in effect, a slap
on the wrist of the Marine Fisher-
les Commission, telling them to
stay in their own yard and leave
law making up to the Cabinet.
Governor Chiles set the tone


I of the meeting when he said, "It
Just seems to me, cut them a lit-
tlie bit of slack at this stage and
let's' see. If we see some abuse,
regulate it, deal with it."
Ted Forsgren, executive direc-
tor of the Florida Conservation
Association, said huge trawls
were blamed for the collapse of
centuries-old commercial fisher-
ies In the Northeast and for
threatening fish species off North


Carolina.
The fishermen, led by their
attorney Pat Floyd of Port St. Joe,
insisted the use of the purse
seines 'to catch finfish as well as
shrimp would do no harm to the.
"fisheries of Florida.
Russell Nelson, executive di-
rector of the Marine Fisheries Co-
mission, said even the shrimp-
only provision would do harm to
the fisheries and urged the cabi-


net to deny their use for any oth-
ei purpose. The temporary per-
mission for use of even special
versions of the purse seine for
shrimping is due to expire on Oc-
tober 1, an expiration which Nel-
son urged the Cabinet to allow to
happen.

13,000 TRIM Notices


GoOut In the Mail

Tell the Taxing Taleof Some $551,000,000


Worth of Valuation
Uncle Sam called such notic-
es "Greetings" during the draft
years. The state of Florida terms
such welcome news today as
'TRIM Notices". Both bore a mes-
sage of grim but necessary news,
Gulf County Property Ap-
praiser Kesley Colbert placed the
Gulf County version in the mails
last Friday, telling taxpayers own-
ing approximately 13,000 parcels
exactly how much their taxes.will
be this year if everything stays
the same until the tax notices go
out in November.
Circumstances could change
before that time, but, according
to law, changeI may be made
pushing the ta4 rate down but
not upward. In other words, the,
taxing authorities can reduce
your 1996 taxes without further
notice to you, but they may not
increase the rate without letting
you know in various ways they
are- going to spend more of your
money.
WHAT THE NOTICE SAYS
There is a wealth of informa-
tion in the single page notice you
have probably received in the
mails by now.
There are three columns on
the page, dealing with taxes. One
of the columns tells you what
your taxes were last year and the
assessments on your property.
Another column tells you the roll-
back millage rate [the millage rate
which would be needed this year
to give taxing bodies the same
number of tax dollars' as last
year.] The third column gives the
assessment of'your property for
the current year and the rate of
taxation the taxing bodies have
planned to charge you With.
HOLD THE LINE
All taxing bodies levying Gulf


Throughout County
County taxes either have kept the
same mill rate as last year, or re-
duced them slightly. Gulf County
and the School Board each reflect
slight reductions. Both the City of
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka are
levying the exact same tax rate as
last year. The Northwest 'Florida
Water District is also levying the
same tax rate.
All taxing bodies will have a
few more dollars to work with be-
cause a few more pieces of im-
proved 'property went on the tax
rolls which were not there last
year. Some properties are worth
more than last year and this in-
crease is reflected on the assess-
ment rolls. Taxes off these, im-
proved properties account for the
increased amount of money in
each and every budget.
Colbert said his office turned
in a county-wide assessment of
$568,853,794 for the current
year. Last year's total assessment
came to $550,870,828; or an in-
crease in total properties as-
sessed of $18,000,000.
SETTING PRECEDENT
All taxing authorities in Gulf
County-the County, the School
. Board, City of Port St. Joe, City of
Wewahitchka and the NWF Water
District-have been setting a
precedent the past three tax
years. All have depended on addi-
tional properties and increases in
valuation going on the rolls to
make up their source of more
money to take care of rising pric-
es, etc.
Millage rates have stayed
pretty constant since 1973. The
only fluctuation of more than a
single mill was reflected in the
School Board budget in fiscal
1994, when the rate was hiked

Welcome Words


TRIM Notices Show Taxes Down!
IT WAS NICE .TO have conversation with our Gulf County
Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert the other day and have him
say,,"The TRIM notices reflect a little DE-crease in the tax rate
this year." This was the same Kesley Colbert who writes, "Hun-
ker Down With Kes" every week in The Star and we knew from
the way he said it, that he was serious as a heart attack when
he reported that Gulf County taxes had finally reversed their
field for however brief a time as they might continue to go down-
ward.
Kes was giving us the annual reminder that his office is only
responsible for preparing and mailing out the TRIM notices by
virtue of the fact that his office happens to be the office in the
county where all these taxing figures are 'brought together and
sent out to the people. "I have absolutely nothing to do with the
amount of money these TRIM notices say they are going to take
from the public!" he firmly attests.
THE PROPERTY APPRAISER is just as happy as anybody
for a little tax relief and just as incredulous and unbelieving
when it finally happens. Of course, the local men at the head of
government are not altogether to blame for the continuing up-
ward spiral of taxes over the past few years, either. They have
their share of the blame, but they are not to blame for the whole
ball of taxing wax!
Those politicians up in Washington -and Tallahassee, who
bend to public demand that this service or that service would be
nice to have and pass the bill for that "nice service" on to the lo-
cal government are mostly to blame. or maybe we can lay the
blame at the feet of those private individuals who think this or
that service would be nice.
THE TAXES IN GULF county have reversed themselves and
started on a downward track but we don't know how long the
trend will continue or how much taxes will ultimately be' re-
duced. But, it's a start! We can't say yet that it is a trend, but
it's a start!
As Kes says, "It isn't much of a reduction, but any at all is
better than none at all." Who knows, maybe this tax reduction
thing will become a contest between the several governing
groups in the county and they will begin to compete with one an-
other in the practice of frugality. That refreshing event would be
as welcome as a 75 degree day right about now.



Invasion

OUR BEACHES AND shores along the Big Bend of the Flor-
da Panhandle are being invaded by hordes of dead fish washing
up on shore. Many are speculating over what is causing this pe-
riodic fouling of the beaches and what can be done to prevent its
spreading or continuing.
The most sensible 'and realistic answer seems to be that
there is no solution to the problem. Biologists tell us it is a mat-
'ter of too much heat for the temperatures of the water to over-
come. The fish are dying of heat prostration.
earningsg s have also been sounded for human beings during
this period of unusually intense heat to take precautions. that
ryo6u don't end up like the fish; a statistic attesting to the severity
of nature.
YOU KNOW YOU must not fool Mother Nature! Or more cor-
rectly, you must not fool around with Mother Nature, or she will
do you in. She has done thousands of fish in over the past two
weeks, decimating their ranks even more than a commercial
fisherman with a gill net ever thought about doing.
Whatever man can do. Mother Nature can top his efforts, ef-
fortlessly! Mother Nature is always more- destructive than man-
kind and she still heals her destructive rampages. Whether it be
fish kills, storms, earthquakes,, floods, or what have you. Man
can do nothing about Mother Nature's rampages except get out
of the why!, .e
MANY OLD, TIMERS tell us about numerous fish kills they
have witnessed all their lives. They always appear, regularly,
when the weather gets oppressively hot and uncomfortable. The
fish lave no access to air conditioning or cooling fans. They
can't adjust their surroundings to compensate for the unusual
conditions and temperatures. If they can't get out of Mother Na-
ture's way, they die!
So, it isn't due to mysterious circumstances such as a "Red
Tide", a blue-tide, or a rip tide. The so-called "Red Tide" is noth-
ing more than Mother Nature. herself, trying to stay comfortable,
during the inclement weather of "Dog Days"!

I can tell you one thing the
Class of '75 was absolutely wrong

I have been doing some seri-

class for several weeks now. They
graciously invited me to speak at

teachers turned them down.) Af-
ter twenty years I stood up,
cleared my throat, looked 'em all

Picture Taking Session Brings on Some Strange Activities... Preparation


WE'RE HAVING A "year
book" made down at the church,
which will contain a picture of all
the members and officers of the
church, as a tool to get better ac-
quainted and everybody know
everybody else. Of course every-
body already knows everybody,
else, but as the years pass by
they may forget some of the peo-
ple they know today and we
wouldn't want that to happen.
The photographer has been
taking pictures for the "year
book" all this week and of course,
making copies of the photographs
avy Iable for anyone who wants to
purchase one or two for Aunt Su-
'zie or Cousin Hiram or all the
children to have a picture of
mother and dad in an unusual
setting.
Every time someone gets his
portrait made it is usually an un-
usual setting. We see the subjects
on picture-taking day as we don't
at any .other time. Everyone puts
on their best bib and tucker, all


the ladles have their hair done
and badger all the men to get a
haircut before picture taking day.

WELL, WE ALL followed the
expected formula for having our
beauty struck, during the two or
three evenings the photographer
made himself available to do the
job. I say "himself', as I refer to
the photographer, when actually
it was a "herself' operating the
camera and giving the instruc-
tions of just how to sit, where to
place our hands, which direction
to look, how high to raise our
chin, etc.


The lady was quite profes-i
sional in performing her job, but I
noticed one little quirk in her ar-'
rangements for the people to
present themselves to the camera
lens.
Her main attention was given
to how the ladies looked!
When Frenchie and I had our
picture made, the photographer
took up most of her time instruct-
ing Frenchie, "Sit a little straight-
'er," she would say. "Hold your-
shoulders back. Look this way'
. Smile Show me some
teeth .. Fold your hands in your'
lap and cross your legs. No don't


cross the left leg, cross the right
leg. We'll have you cross the other
leg in a different pose ... Look
this way. Look that way..."
All kinds of little personal in-.
*structions such as that. You
would think Frenchie had never
had her picture taken before.

BUT NOW, WHEN she came
to me, it was more like; ."Sit up,
stupid, and don't pick your nose!"
I tried to do what I was told,
but I wasn't told to do very much.
It was more or less like I was just
along for the ride; sort of an extra
we had to have in the picture for
balance. "But try not to mess up
this photograph I am about to
take of this nice-looking lady"
Well, I did what I was told
without any back-talk. I buttoned
my coat, sat still, put a silly grin
on my face and she did the rest.
Two or three exposures and
innumerable shifting of positions
and we were done for the day.
Until a few moments later


when they showed us the "proofs"
on their computer.

YOU HAVE SEEN these in-
stant picture cameras? Well those
photographers had an instant
computer About 10 minutes after
the photo session, -another lady
took us in a room, "Just to let us
see which pose we would rather
have included in the church di-
rectory."
She rolled up versions of our
picture on the screen in rectangu-
lar poses, square poses, oval pos-
es all in full color and with
the admonition that "these are
just raw proofs. The finished
product will look much, much
better!"
Well, I already looked like a
distinguished, mature man after
that photographer got through
with me; better than I had ever
seen me look, so she had me on
the hook for some extra pictures,
right off the bat. You know, "To
give to the kids."


Well all my kids have seen
me as recently as day before yes-
terday and let me tell you, they
won't recognize the very distin-
guished, slightly greying, svelt
gentleman staring at them with
black rimmed glasses-the kind
executives wear-with an unwa-
vering look, as theW dear old dad!
They may recognize the very
nice-looking lady by my side, with
every hair in place, her hands
held primly in her lap and with
her leg sedately crossed [the left
one] with a very sweet sedate
smile on her lips, as their old
momma! You know, the, same one
who hollered and screamed at
them to "Behavet Shut the door!
Pick up your dirty clothes Go
take your bath and go to bed!
Quit picking on your brother [sis-
ter]l"
But, I reckon they are expect-
ed to recognize me by my associa-
tion with the lady in the photo-
graph.
We bought eight copies.

- Chiles, however, ruled against the
MFC proposal and agreed to allow
fishermen to use the trawls. 500-
square-feet or less, for species
other than shrimp; specifically ci-
gar minnows and jelly fish. a deli-
cacy in the Orient.
Fishermen would be allowed-
to modify the trawls, so long as
they didn't exceed the maximum
'size allowed, to serve their needs.
S Still the Governor said, "A
/ 500-square foot net isn't a '5,000
square foot net in North Carolina
or Cape Cod. We're talking about
menhaden, bait .-fish. Hopefully
there's a market for some of that
stuff. Hopefully, some of hese
people can stay in business."
The Governor continued, "I'll,
just be dadgum if I see where
that's necessary to put that
additional thing on these people
we've told that they can't pursue
what their fathers did and their
grandfathers did."
The Cabinet agreed it would
be beyond the MFC's power or le-

A total of 24 persons have
been arrested by Gulf County
Sheriff deputies and Port St. Joe
Police Officers over the weekend
on 44 various drug charges.
A two-month long investiga-
tion conducted by the 2-C Narcot-
ic Task Force, made up of officers
from the sheriffs office, and po-
'lice department, were- targeting
crack cocaine .sellers in the Gulf
County area.
The task force moved an un-
dercover officer into Gulf County
where he lived during the opera-
tion. It took several weeks for the
undercover officer to infiltrate
some of the dealers, due to the
fact that they are being very care-
ful not to sell -to anyone they
don't know.
'Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen and Port St. Joe Police
Chief Bucky Richter were very
pleased with the results of the op-
eration and plan to continue their
. crackdown on drugs.
The 24 arrests made during
the past week added to the 67 ar-
rests made by the 2-C Narcotic
Task Force since February of this
year making, a total of 91 drug-
related arrests during the past six
months in Gulf County..

Snmiichl you should give Ihem.
Most plans grow very well in
a. soil that's kept moist, but not
'coilnually saturated with water.
l1launls need air, as well as water.
Too lnl('ch water can suffocate
plant ro)ots, and cause, them to
Srot. Over watering also causes se-
vere leaf drop.
Of course, how much water,
and how often will vary. consider-
ably, depending on the type of
plant you're growing, its size and
stage of growth, the potting soil,
the size and, kind of container,
and all of the factors I've men-
tioned in previous articles-light,
temperature, and relative humidi-
e ty. So, to determine if a plant
needs water, just poke your finger
into the soil to a depth of about
an inch. If it feels moist, water
isn't needed. If the soil feels dry
and crumbly, the plant probably
could use some additional mois-
ture.
.Most plants should receive
applications of lukewarm water.
Except during very cold weather,
tap water is fine. Water your
plants thoroughly,. applying.
enough to moisten the soil all the
way to the bottom of the pot.
If a plant is growing in a con-
tainer which has drainage holes,
place the pot in a saucer or tray
and apply water until you see ex-
cess draining out of the bottom.
- After you are sure that all the ex-
cess has drained out, discard the
water that has collected in the
saucer. Never leave the pot stand-
ing in this excess. -
When using a container that
lacks drainage holes, you should
put a layer of coarse gravel in the
bottom before adding potting soil.
This will provide space for excess
water to collect, and help prevent
the root rot problem We men-
tioned earlier. A good way to
check the moisture content of
such a container is to lay it on its
side in a sink-plant and all.
Leave it in .this position long
enough for all excess water to


drain out. And then, return it to
its upright position.
In summary maintaining
proper soil moisture for house
plants isn't difficult but, it does
require some common sense and
restraint. We honestly can't over-
emphasize that. over-watering is
the most common cause of failure
with house plants. Of course, too
little moisture also can be harm-.


ful. So, you should check the
condition of the soil around your
plants frequently. Obviously, we
can't give a. specific watering
schedule, because so many fac-
tors influence how often and how
much water your plants will
need. It's up to you to keep a
close check on the condition of
the 'soil around each of your
plants.

two units of fluoride per thou-.
sand gallons.
'We do ,this on a regular ba-
sis, when the test shows the lev-
els to be this high, along with a
caution that the levels are high,"
according to a clerk in the City
Hall.
'This notice will no longer be
necessary after late fall or early
winter," John -,Mclnnis, city man-
ager, said this week. 'With the
completion of a $1.2 million pro-
ject we are currently building, we
will reduce the fluoride level to
one unit per thousand, a level
which is beneficial to everyone."
According to Mclrnnis the two
new shallow wells will be 200 feet
deep and supply totally fluoride-
.free water, -which will be mixed
with water from the other two
wells in order to dilute the.fluo-
ride to an acceptable level.
"The count will be automati-
cally kept at this level, when we
are finished," Mclnnis said.
LOOK AT OPTIONS
Since the warning of the lev-
els approaching the danger level.
the City has explored its options
on hdwv to reduce the-- chemical-
content which:was invading their
water supply from natural sourc-
es. It was a case of Mother Nature
providing too much of a good
thing. Some communities must
add fluoride to their systems for
the dental treatment capabilities.
Mexico Beach had the problem of
having too much of the chemical
present, to the level that it may
cause discoloration of children's
teeth, if used in quantities and if
nothing was done to lower levels.
One solution the City had


considered was to put a giant fil-
ter on the entire system to filter
out the excess chemical, but this
was even more costly than the fi-
nal solution which they adopted.
The adopted solution took
care of the problem at hand anrid
gave the City a source of more
water, too. The two new wells will
be capable of pumping 500 gal-
lons per minute of raw water.
COSTING $1.2 MILLION'
The entire project Is costing
the City of Mexico Beach $1.2
million and is being financed with
a low-cost FmHA loan of
$829,600 and a $300,000 grant.
Mclnnis said the loan will be re-
paid with a charge of $2.25 added
to each water customer per
month. This will bring customers'
bills, to a $11.75 total for a mini-
mum bill of 4.000 gallons.
The current work will not
only .provide a safe and adequate
supply of water, but such "hard-
ware" Is being built Into the treat-
ment plant as an adequate filtra-
tion system, aeration facilities,,
ground storage of raw water,
which could be, sent through the
-sytdfn'nih case" of a -diss&tious
fire, and auxiliary power system
to operate pumps and water
treatment machinery in case of
power failure.
Mclnnis said. "We furnish
water to a number of people in
Gulf County. too," the City man-
ager said. "It will mean they will
be receiving a more dependable
supply of treated water also."
Beacon Hill and that portion of
the beach community, east, to
Gulf Sands Motel; are all on the
system.

ting worse. He recommended the
board declare an emergency situa-
tion in the area and write a letter to
the Department of Transpor-tation
seeking their assistance in dealing
with the problem.
S The board has been fighting a
losing battle with Mother Nature
from quite some time, trying to con-
trol erosion problems in the area by
every means available tothem. 'But,
the Gulf of Mexico has continued to
inch closer and closer to the road
bed which provides the only barrier
between the waters of the Gulf of
Mexido and the sensitive estuary of
St. Joseph Bay.
If the Gulfs waters were to
break through allowing access to
the bay, not only would it divide the
peninsula, forming an island, but it
would deal' an irreparable blow to
the ecology of the bay.
The commissioners have been
trying to get the state to declare C-
30 a state road pointing out that
there isi a military installation and
two state parks on the-road. Chief
Administrative Assistant Don
Butler informed the Commission he'.
had met with DOT and was expect-
ing an answer soon to what they
might do.
Solid Waste Director Joe
Danford suggested the county look
into using old tires as a temporary
measure to help control the erosion
problem if permission could be
obtained from' the Department of
Environmental Protection. The
board agreed, asking Danford to see
if It could be done while they pursue
getting some help from the state.
Recycle Funds
The City of Port St. Joe and the
county commissioners continued to
negotiate over the disbursement of
1994-95 Recycle Grant Funds
received by the county.
When applying for the '94-'95
funds; city-Public Works Super-,
intendent Frank Healy and county
Solid Waste Director Joe Danford
had jointly written into the grant
application $30,000 earmarked to
be usedfor a composting program
by the city.
Danford told the board that he
felt the money would be better uti-
lized by the county on projects he
had proposed at Five Points
Landfill. He stated that the com-
posting project would only save the
city $7,750 per year in tipping fees
to the incinerator, taking 11 years
to recoup the $90,000 dollar invest-
ment it would take to complete the
three-year project
Healy countered Danford's fig-'
ures stating that 80% of the city's
incinerating fees could be recovered
through-the program (approximate-
ly $64,000 per year). .He said that
'he recentlyy visited aa composting
facility in Sumter County'" at was
recycling 80% of their solid waste
through composting.
'City Commissioner Charles
Tharpe addressed the board saying
that all the city wanted was for the
county: to live up to their agreement
made on the recycling grant appli-
cation.
The two argued about the mer-
its of each other's garbage collection
service for a while with the county
commissioners liking their arrange-
ment with Argus which costs users
$10.31/month 'for. once:'a week
garbage pick-up while the city
praised their service which gave
garbage pickup including trash
pick-up for $14.00 per month.

Milly, th

One of the most familiar leg-
ends of Wakulla is the story of
Milly the Indian princess, who
saved- the, life of a white man on
the banks of the Wakulla River.
The courage of this Florida "Poca-
hontas" and the pathos of her life
are recorded in the annals of
Creek history.
Milly's father, Hillis Hadjo
(also called the Prophet Francis
by- his followers) was a distin-
guished Creek chief. He had been
driven into Florida during the
' 1813 campaign of Andrew Jack-

e Indian Princess-Wakulla's Own Pocahontas


crossing on the Wakulla River,
just below the Springs, -and
named it Francis Town. It was
here the Prophet Francis was ap-
proached by a British agent, Ed-
ward, Nichols, who. needed his
help to acquire Florida for Brit-
ain. Nichols led Francis to believe
the Treaty of Ghent in 1814 pro-
vided for the restoration of the
Seminole country.
In the hope of obtaining aid
for his tribe against the Ameri-
cans, Francis went to England
with Nichols. An English Journal
-mentions his arrival: "The sound
of trumpets announced the ap-h
proach of the patriot Francis. who:
fought so gloriously in our cause
in America during the late war.
Being dressed in a most splendid
suit of red and gold, and wearing
a tomahawk set with gold, gave
him a highly imposing appear-
ance." In London. Francis was
commissioned in the British
army. given the colorful and ele-
gant regalia of a British Brigadier
General and numerous gifts to
bring home.
Nichols was followed by a
second agent. Robert Ambrister, a
British soldier in temporary disre-
pute. Ambrister left London for
the Bahamas where his uncle
was governor. It was here he
made his decision' to come to
Francis Town on the Wakulla and
seek the aid of the Creeks in an
effort to gain favor back home.
Shortly after Ambrister ar-
rived at Francis Town he met Mil-
ly, the daughter of the chieftain,
who was considered the most
beautiful girl in the tribe. He
taught her the modes and man-
ners of white women. Milly fell in
love with Ambrister but the court-
ship was brief. When the prophet
Francis told Ambrister he was
ready to help the British hold
Florida, Ambrister hurried off to
Tampa Bay to secure harbor for
his expected fleet, and the ro-
mance with Milly was forced to
await his return.


During Ambrister's absence,
another young man came into
Milly's life. He was Duncan
McKrimmon, a private in Andrew
Jackson's army. McKrimmon had
gone fishing and hunting...lost
his sense of direction and wan-
dered for three days in the dense
woods. Tired and starved, he shot
a deer for survival arid was
caught by a band of Indians who
were "enraged that he had de-
stroyed one of their animals.
McKrimmon was taken at once to
Francis Town for punishment.
Milly. not yet 16. was playing
near camp with her sister...and
became startled by the peculiar
war cry which meant a prisoner
had been taken. They quickly
ran to the camp and found
McKrimmon. stripped of his
clothing and bound to a tree on
the banks of the Wakulla River.
Warriors were dancing around
him in preparation for burning
him at the stake.
Aware that McKrimmon was
about to be put to death, Milly
begged her father to spare his life.
When Francis wavered. she
showed her determination to die
with the prisoner. Her father said
according to Indian custom, no
chief had 1he right to interfere
with the fate of white prisoners
and Milly would have to appeal to
his captors.
Milly approached the two
warriors with her plea...one was
enraged, for he had lost two sis-
ters at the hands of the Ameri-
cans and felt McKrimmon must
die to avenge them. But. using
her charm, beauty and wisdom
well beyond her years...Milly
pointed out that killing McKrim-
mon would not bring back his
sisters. After much persuasion.
the captors agreed to release their
prisoner.
According to a report from
the Committee on Indian Affairs,
"the condition on which'McKrim-


Nelson Spotlights Insurance Fraud


The cases range from a man
who faked his death in a horse-
back riding accident for a million
dollars in life Insurance to an eld-
erly couple who submitted phony
prescription claims for hundreds
of thousands of dollars.
They are among the 10 cases
selected for a new list containing
some of the most costly, unusual
or illustrative insurance fraud
scams investigated by the Florida
Department of Insurance during.
the recently concluded fiscal year
of state government.
The 'Terrible Ten" list-
Issued by state Treasurer and In-'
surance Commissioner Bill Nel-
son-was compiled from among
roughly 1.600 fraud cases investi- .
gated by the Insurance Depart-
ment during the 1994-95 fiscal .
year that ended on June 30.
"They highlight some of the
most outrageous. flagrant exam-
ples of fraud," said Nelson, who is
making all types of insurance
fraud a top priority. 'These cases
drain millions from the system
and cost us all from 10 percent to
30 percent higher insurance
rates."
The cases were chosen for the
list by Insurance Department In-
vestigators, based largely on the
1 fact that they Illustrate various
scams that occur in Florida. Ac-
cording to the Washington, D.C.-
based Coalition Against insu-
- rance Fraud. Florida is plagued
by insurance fraud.
Nationally, Insurance fraud
costs companies and consumers
an estimated $20 billion-a-year.
In Florida. the figure for these 10


cases was more than $3 million.
;Nelson said he intends to
compile the fraud list at the con-
clusion of each fiscal year. He
also said release of the first list
marks the beginning of a cam-
paign to spotlight 'insurance
fraud-related issues each month
and, more specifically, how it
costs consumers.


Good Year on

Ochloikonee
Dobbins has been conducting
a creel, or angler survey. twice a
week since late February and he
says many days he's counted 60-
70 boats below the Jackson Bluff
Dam and over 600 bream in fish-
ermen's live wells and ice chests.
He said more than half of the
bream harvest has been red-
breast sunfish, also called river
bream, the most prized panfish to
many for their eating quality.
"The reason for the success
this spring is probably due to the
fact that the river was flooded
much of last spring and summer
and very little fishing was done,"
said Dobbins. "Also, there's no
question a lot of fish produced in
Lake Talquin went through the
dam and were available to fisher-
men this spring."
Although fishing success is
starting to taper off due to declin-
ing water levels, Dobbins said the
preferred fishing baits for bream
have been freshwater mussels.
,crickets and wigglers.


mon's life was finally spared was
that he would shave his head in.
Indian fashion, adopt their dress
- and live among them." Grateful to.
Milly for his life, McKrimmon
agreed at once to the terms, was
untied and set free. "They shaved
the young man's head." the re-
port goes on, "excepting the scalp
lock which was ornamented with
feathers, and after painting him
and providing an Indian dress, he
.. was set at liberty and adopted as
one of the tribe." Several weeks
later. McKrimmon was ransomed
to a Spanish commander at Fort
St. Marks for 7 1/2 cases of rum
Sand' rejoined :Andrew Jackson's
troops, later returning to his
home in Georgia.
In the meantime. Milly's fa-
ther was arrested during a skir-
mish with an American Marine
Schooner. court martilaled and
executed. Ambrister, her white
lover, later pled guilty to inciting
indians to hostility and was sen-
i. tenced to a firing squad. Life then
became a serious of misfortunes
for Milly. who Joined the rest of
her family and 188 Indians from
St. Marks and Francis Town and
set out for Fort Scott. arriving
sick and starving in November
1818.
Duncan McKrimmon, learn-
ing of Milly and her family, went
to Fort Scott at once. He had nev-
er ceased dreaming of the beauti-
ful girl who saved his life at the
risk of her own and hoped Milly
would consent to be his wife. He
knew their courtship would not
be easy, as he still belonged to
the army that had hanged her fa-
ther and shot her lover. Milly re-
fused his offer of matrimony but
accepted his help in her family's
resettlement in Oklahoma.
.Years later, in 1842, a Lt.
Col. E. A. Hitchcock, 3rd Infantry
of the United States Army, was
on an official mission in Indian
territory and learned that Milly
was living near the Arkansas riv-
er in Oklahoma. Now 40 years
old. she had married one of her'
own race, but was now widowed
and living in poverty. Hitchcock
returned to Washington and
through the Secretary of War,
and an Act of Congress. came to
the forgotten woman's aid.
Milly was granted a pension
of $96 a year for the rest of her
life and a special medal was
struck in testimony of the grati-
tude of the United States, passed
and approved in the first session


of the wventy-Eighth Congress on June 17, 1844.

Tracing The


Pain


A patient has an excruciat-
,ing pain in his mouth. He
thinks he knows exactly where
it comes from. He naturally
expects the dentist to treat the
bad tooth and send him on his
way.
Unfortunately, it's not al-
ways that;simple. Finding the,
source of the pain can. be
more of a problem than you
think. Because there are so
many nerves around the
mouth, the pain. impulse may
get jumbled on its way to the
brain. Often, the discomfort
seems to come .from an area
some distance from 'its real
source. This phenomenon is.
known as referred pain.


Pain from a bad tooth cahn
seem to arise in front or be-
hind it, or even from the oppo-
site jaw! Rather than rush in
and treat the suspected cause
of the pain, the dentist will
probably perform a few tests
to be sure. Be patient. Pain is.
fickle. Your dentist wants you
to be free. ofall pain. Howev-
er, he also wants to be very
sure that he treats the prob-
lem at its source AS WELL as
making you comfortable.

Dear Counselor,
My wife Is an alcoholic, and it
has taken me years to accept this
fact Our teenage daughter does-
n't talk about It but I know it's
affecting her life. Ive tried to talk
to my wife about receiving coun-
seling, but she doesn't feel that
she has a problem. What do I do?
S Signed.
Frustrated Incorporated.
Dear Frustrated,
Don't allow your wife's denial
of her problem and need for help
to stop you from receiving help
yourself. Living with an alcoholic
is hard on all family members and
can easily develop into unhealthy
family patterns and habits.
I suggest that' you take the
lead for your family and get a han-
dle on the situation: don't wait
another week before attending a
local Al-Anon meeting. Seek the
wisdom and counsel of others.
Make opportunities for your,
teenager to talk with someone or
attend a local Alateen program.
nt


The best way to deal with an alco-
holic is for.you to gain the knowl-.
edge and tools to make healthy
decisions and lifestyle choices.
Remember, you are not alone.
and it will help you to share your
struggles with others going
through similar experiences. Gulf
County Guidance Clinic has qual-
ified counselors and individuals
who would be more than happy to
assist you with information con-
cerning these programs.

Visit From the Credit Union
Kathy Adams and Gloria

week and talked about money.
Who doesn't? They told the

Open House a Success
Not everyone could come, of
course, but there was an excel-

house of the year. Parents had
the opportunity to meet teachers
and clarify some of the rules and

was not a time for individual con-
ferences, both parents and teach-
ers agreed it was- very worthwhile.

From
Gleanings My Garden

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

How to Argue and Win Every Time;


Now famous trial commenta-
tor and criminal attorney, Gerry
Spence, has written a book enti-
tled, How to Argue and Win Every
Time. It is a common desire to
win, to win at all cost, no matter
the game or the consequences of
the victory. And let us admit, win-,
ning an argument is sweet victo-
ry. But to hear the words, "you
are always right," are seldom
meant as a compliment. And
most of us are slow to give
ground oh even the smallest is-
sue.
I, for one, enjoy good debate.
I delight in playing "devil's advo-
cate", especially with those'.who
are "always right." But I have also
learned that being right arid win-
ning arguments don't always go
together.,The call of Christin our
lives is not to win every argu-
ment, or even always be right. In-
stead, we are called to be right-
eous, to be loving, to be kind, to
be honest, and to be humble.
Butit, no matter how hard we


issue. Sometimes we delight in
clubbing people over the head
with truth. Truth for some folks
is always like a sledgehammer. It
shatters everything in its path on
its way to driving home the point.
There may be a place for such,
truth, but truth is often more like
a seed. It has to be planted, al-
lowed to grow, and bear fruit..
Sledgehammers are never much
help when it comes to planting
- seeds. I wish.some folks, some es-
pecially in the church, could
learn this. I have often prayed the
prayer of the little girl who was
overheard saying, "Lord, make all
the bad people good, and all the
good people nice."
Now there's a seed for
thought. The scriptures say it
plainly, "If it is possible, as far as
it depends on you, live peaceably
with all men." (Romans 12:18
NKJV). And Jesus plainly taught,
"love your enemies, bless those
who hate you, and pray for those
who spitefully use you and perse-
cute you" (Matthew 5:44 NKJV).
It is amazing how differently peo-
,ple seem, when you look at them
from down on your knees.,

Some things are just not worth
fighting about. To let people have
their way on minor things often
makes it more possible to win on
the things that count. Sometimes
you have to stoop to conquer.
Also, its is wise to ever let
your adversary choose the battle-.
'field or the weapons of war. Some
.people will win regardless of how
wrong they, are, if they are, al-
lowed to decide the where and
with what the battle will be
fought.
Being right is riot always the

Evidence Points to



Reduction of Fla.



Prison Population

While Some Prognosticators. Predict A

Struggle for Money In the Future
EDUCATION LOBBY NEVER CHANGES-Forgive an old reporter his
humorous memoirs, but higher education officials in old Taxahassee are
proving once again that some things never change.
Chancellor Charlie Reed is playing the same old woeful-money tune
on his guitar, predicting Florida prisons will roll up some $2.1 billion in
future costs that will gobble up new state revenue from 27 percent in the
1996-97 fiscal year to 81 percent in the year 2000.
Universities will fight public schools, welfare and other state pro-
grams for what's left; Reed says.
What Reed and the Board of Regents are ignoring in their doomsday
statistics the liberal press is gobbling up as gospel. is that the cost of
crime may very well go down dramatically now that the state is finally get-
ting tough on it.
Tallahassee recently reported a 17 percent drop in crime for the first
six months of this year and Hillsborough County has now announced a
15 percent drop, both attributed to new tougher laws, more prisons and
(especially) boot camps for juveniles.
Conservative legislators (who fortunately are in the majority in
Florida right now) think that trend will continue statewide. So does this
column.
Another tremendous saving would be to shut down the present
Florida Parole Commission which has 224 employees and a $10.2 million
annual budget. The commission's main duty in recent years has been to
decide which prisoners to let out to relieve overcrowding. Enough prisons
and new laws to make them serve at least 85 percent of their time elimi-I
nates parole for all future inmates. Clemency for the some 6,000 prison-
ers not covered under the new lAw could be handled by other agencies or
-why not?-the Florida Cabinet.
There is a distinguished panel reviewing whether to abolish' the
Florida Cabinet too. But the cabinet, it seems to this old reporter, would
be much more unlikely to engage'in the political patronage system that
has dogged the parole commission. Containing both Republicans and
Democrats (all elected statewide), it would certainly not now be facing
embarrassing charges of intervention by the governor's office that result-
ed in the release of a DUI manslaughter convict after only 27 months of
a 10-year sentence.
It's clear that the cabinet with its easier access by the 'public and
shared responsibilities would be fairer, more effective and-because its
members have other important duties-less costly than the Florida Parole
Commission, controlled by the governor, no matter who he may be.
Don't expect too much from the university presidents and members
of the Board of Regents. who are the elite of Florida's education lobby.
Chancellor Reed should listen to ideas on how to deliver college education
and research more efficiently with less costs rather than just clamoring
for a bigger share of tax money and threatening higher tuition costs if
they don't get it.
Florida State University President Sandy D'Alemberte, a colorful for-
mer pro-abortion lawyer, legislator; Florida Bar president now educator
who likes to think of himself as another Thomas Jefferson, has an inter-
esting 'proposal. FSU is studying electronic technology for delivering
instruction to distant classrooms or even living rooms that would cut
campus building costs. "We don't have to be wed to a.. .teacher standing
before a classroom," he said.
But D'Alemberte and other university heads still plug most for more
old-fashioned tax money in spite of a revenue cap written by voters into
the Florida constitution.

ROUND-UP


by Jack Harper



Here's the Capitol News Report
SMALL TOWNS BEST TO LIVE IN, SAYS CLEM-, A national maga-
zine named Money picked five Florida cities among the top 10 metropoli-
tan areas to live in the country, but it missed the boat because most small
towns are better to live in than anywhere else, said Uncle Clem Rednek
down on Flat Creek in Gadsden County.
"Those big city folk jest don't know any better. Dey brains have been
scrambled by car gas fumes," Clem said.
The magazine picked Gainesville (once known as Hogville) as first
overall winner, saying it was one of the few places in the U. S. where you
can live in the wilderness, work in town and have a maximum 30-minute
commute.
Clem said he and Aunt Minnie Tennishoe, who lives in St. Pete but
comes back to Flat Creek whenever she can, have picked their top five
small towns in Florida. They include:
Wetumpka, south of the metropolis of Quincy in Gadsden County
where there is a Voluntary Fire Department.
Brooksville in Hernando County where all the women are beautiful
and the children above average.
Crescent Beach in St. Johns County which is far enough from
Jacksonville to be rural, is on the best swimming beach in the world with
salt and freshwater fishing
*Everglades City in Collier County where real living in nearbySouth
Florida began. .
Crystal River in Citrus County, close enough to the recreation of the
southwest Gulf Coast and far enough from the big cities of the Bay area.
"But me and Aunt Minnie pursonolly prefer Flat Creek fer nobody can
find it' Why STAY in a town iffen you kin LIVE in the woods," Clem said.

NET FISHERMEN SUING TV STATIONS-Claiming a tv commercial
showing a sea turtle upside down grasping for air and dead fish from a
net being dumped back into the water were taken on a research boat,
commercial fishermen have .filed 16 lawsuits against 16 Florida TV sta-
tions who used it during the campaign that brought on a net ban in
coastal waters in July.
Georgia officials notified the stations the commercials were mislead-,
ing because they were actually taken on a state research vessel operated
by the University of Georgia, not on a commercial fishing boat.

CROSS FLORIDA MISSILE TEST A SUCCESS-An unarmed
Tomahawk cruise missile was launched across North Florida successful-
ly by the U. S. Navy last week, opening the door for more tests.,.,
The launch was from the cruiser USS San Jacinto in the Atlantic
across North Florida'to a military range in the panhandle.
The Navy saves considerable money by firing across Florida instead
of sending its launch ships Into. te Gulf of Mexico, but it had to meet'
safety requirements to get permission to do it.
