First Ever, Hand-Built Sail


Boat Set to Launch Friday


Dr. Rudy Sechez
will test out two
and one half year
project and host a
launch (or flip)
party Saturday.
Dr. Rudy Sechez will be
launching 'his "Rudy's Effort
No. 1" sailboat tomorrow
morning in an involved oper-
ation of transport and lifting
it from its construction cra-
dle in Sechez's back yard on
Monument Ave.
It was a first ever effort
by the chiropractor at build-
ing a sailboat and he did it in
a big way on his initial try at
boat building. "I did have a
set of plans, though, that I
got from a book," Sechez
said. .
Secliez built the boat the
hard way, taking two and a
half years- 'from laying the
keel to completion this week.
The boat was built using
only small hand and hobby
shop-type power tools. He
even planed most of the lum-
ber used in the boat from a
semi-rough state to the fin-
ished board on a small elec-
trically operated planer in
his carport which has done
second duty as a boat-
building shop for the past
two and a half years.
All this was done in his
spare time.
LAUNCH PROCEDURE
The launching procedure
will.-get. -underway,_tomorrow..
morning around. 8:30 ,or 9:00
a.m. Sechez says a "cherry-
picker" crane will lift the boat
onto a low-boy trailer and
the mast will be removed for
transportation.
It will then be transport-
ed for launching in Deep Wa-
ter Marina, at the east end of
Water Street in Apalachicola,
where it will be re-assembled
and brought to the Apalachi-
cola City Marina at Battery
Park, "if they will let me park
It there," according to Se-
chez.
After the boat is settled
in, Rudy and his wife are
planning a launch party on
and around the boat Satur-
day at noon, Inviting their
friends and supporters to at-
tend.
"I don't know where the
party will be," Sechez said.


"It all depends on where the,
boat is at the time: either at
the Deep Water Marina or
the Battery Park Marina."
When asked if he expect-
ed any problems in the
transportation and launch
activities. Sechez remarked,


"Only if the boat doesn't float
right- side up. There's no
guarantees." And. there isn't,
you know, especially with
one's first effort at building a
sail boat.
Let's hope he doesn't
have any trouble, anyhow!


Paper Mill Steps Up Production ... Some


Robert Nedley, presi-
dent of the St. Joe Forest
Products mill here in Port
St. Joe, said this week that
the paper manufacturing
plant had re-started its
number two paper machine
into production [the larger
of two machines in the
plant] and shut down the
number one machine,


and see basis from week to
week. No definite full pro-
duction date has been set
as of today." -

The mill cut back oper-
ations recently due to a
"soft" paper market which
is. prevailing throughout
the linerboard production
industry.


Rabies Raises Head in Gulf

Infected Cat Captured After It Has Bitten and Scratched 2 People


The HRS Gulf County Public
Health Unit has reported a posi-
tive case of rabies in a domesti-
cated animal. The animal, a stray
gray-'white mix female cat, was
captured by the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department in the Hon-
eyville area, south of Wewahitch-
ka, after it had bitten and
scratched two people. The HRS
Branch Laboratory in Pensacola
confirmed the positive rabies case
on Wednesday, September 6. It is
known that rabies exists in the
Gulf County wildlife population
as a raccoon, tested positive, in
November,, 1994. The cat's source
of infection is unknown.
Rabies is a disease of warm-


blooded animals and man. It is
caused by a virus which affects
the brain and nervous system.
The virus is transmitted usually
by bites and scratches, as it is
found in the saliva of rabid ani-
mals. It is imperative that proper
treatment be given as soon as
possible. Rabies is a preventable
disease if you follow these Steps:
*VACCINATE your pets for ra-
bies. If already vaccinated, be
sure shots are current.
CONTROL or pen your pets.
DO NOT attempt to aid sick or
injured animals. Call Gulf
County Animal Control for as-
sistance.


*REPORT all animal bites and/
or abnormal acting animals.
KEEP CHILDREN from feeding,
handling, or teasing unfamiliar
cats, dogs or wild animals.
*DO NOT CAPTURE or keep
wild animals, such as rac-
coons, as pets.
Rabid animals, may stagger,
appear restless, be aggressive, act
overly friendly, change the tone of
their barks or howls or appear to
be choking. Some animals with
the rabies virus may simply ap-
pear listless with no appetite for

County Gives Support to



New $9,412,946 Budget

A Second Public Hearing Is Scheduled for Tuesday,
September 26; HV Water District Makes Debt Payment


It was a three-in-one meeting
for the Board of County Commis-
sioners Tuesday evening. They
held the first of two public hear-
ings on the proposed 1995-96
county budget, followed by a
meeting of the Highland View
Water Board. Then they conclud-
ed with their regular business for
the evening.
BUDGET HEARINGS
No one from the public voiced
any objections to Gulf County's
proposed 1995-96 budget during
the first of two scheduled public
hearings held Tuesday at 5:30
p.m.
The board did make a few
minor adjustments to the budget
during the session, shuffling
some funds around. But, no alter-
ations were made affecting the
proposed 7.819 village rate
which will fund much of the
$9,412,946 budget for the coming
year.
They also approved a budget
request from Brian McGraw. rep-
resenting Tupelo Soil & Water
Conservation District, of
$3,966.37 to pay 25% of the dis-
trict secretary's salary. Franklin,
Calhoun and Liberty counties will
share this expense with Gulf.
The county's 7.819 millage
rate reflects a slight reduction
from last year's rate.
Highland View Water Board
The Highland View Water
Board's meeting was short and
sweet. They voted to repay the
county $10,000 on past loans
received from the county.
Board'. Chairman Michael
H.am ond said the. j(.lm -still
has about $10,000 of debt
remaining to the county, stem-
ming from past loans which
totalled about $50,000.
'We should finish paying off
the debt next year," he said.
During their regular meeting
the board agreed to put the
wheels In motion to apply for a
Community Development block
grant to refurbish the Highland
View water system.
Applies for Hazard
Mitigation Money
The commissioners decided to
apply for $1,072,703 of Hazard
Mitigation money made available
to the country by the Department
of Community Affairs as a result


Board "Throws Back"


Boat Trailer Fees
The Gulf County Commission did an about face on the pro-
posed fees for using county rights-of-way to launch boats or park
their vehicles on at all county-owned or maintained boat ramps.
Objections to the proposed ordinance have been building
over the past few weeks with several people showing up at the
first public hearing Tuesday evening to voice their opinions.
Otis Davis, Jr. told the board that 95% of his bait business
comes from out-of-county people. "If you're going to charge a
permitting fee then it should be the same for everyone," he said.
He was referring to the proposed permitting charges of $35 for
non-residents as opposed to $5 for county residents and proper-
ty owners.
Dee Mayhann expressed the same sentiments, telling the
commission most of her business comes from out-of-town people
saying she thought something should be done to encourage, not
discourage, out-of-county visitors.
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr. made a motion to termi-
nate the ordinance, seconded by Comm. Jessie Armstrong.
Peters said he had spoken with business owners in the county
and received numerous phone calls opposing the ordinance.
Commissioner Billy Traylor spoke up in support of the ordi-
nance, explaining he didn't feel like it was right for Gulf County
taxpayers who didn't use boat launching facilities to have to pay
for construction and maintenance costs. He said the permits
could be considered as a users' fee with the people using county
boat launching facilities footing the bill rather than the taxpay-
ers.
Commissioners Armstrong, Hammond, and Yeager expressed
that public response received by them had been overwhelmingly
against the ordinance.
The board voted 4-1 to axe the ordinance with Commissioner
Traylor casting the only dissenting vote.


.of the afterrpth .of Tropical Storm
Al -eiTo.- '
Gulf received some of the
state's worse flood damage from
the storm, but has yet to receive
any of the federal grant money to
aid county residents. The hazard
mitigation funds would help vic-
tims of the flood to relocate away
from flood prone areas.
The problem Gulf has had
with the funds offered to them
has been the failure by DCA to
allow for enough administrative
expenses for the county to be able
to afford to get the money.
The board had asked Gulf
County Administrator Larry Wells

Drain


Goes In

Hiway 98

For years, now,' motor-
ists have encountered a
virtual ,lake" 'covering
Highway 98 in the heart of
Mexico Beach, during a
heavy rainfall.
Highway 98 is a main
artery U. S. highway along
the coast of the Gulf of
Mexico and stretches from
Natchez, Mississippi on the
west to Palm Beach on the
east coast of Florida.
Finally, the state De-
partment of Transportation
is repairing the section'of
highway; immediately fol-
lowing the completion of
re-surfacing the road from
the Bay County line to the
west end of Tyzidall AirJ
Force Base.
A '"French drain" is be-
ing .placed along-side the
highway, on both sides at
the point of periodic flood-
ing, to take care of the .
problem. A French drain
operates much like a giant
septic tank drain field. ,

Tenacity

IT WOULD SEEM THAT persistence prevails, or so it ap-
pears, in the City's successful pursuit of a grant to begin the
work of spiffing up Reid Avenue and downtown Port St. Joe.
Last week it was announced that Port St. Joe had received a
grant of $600,000 to begin the work, the cost of which will not
give us much change out of a million dollar bill. Depending on
how much renovation is finally completed, the price tag might
run a little over'a million.
The money will be the down payment on a complete face lift
for. Reid Avenue and the side streets off Reid, which will make
the downtown area an eye balm rather than the eye sore part of
the street presently is.
HOW WILL THIS be accomplished? Well, first there will be a
burial of overhead utilities; a plowing up, lowering and rebuild-
ing of the paved road; adequate storm drainage put in and side-
walks repaired.
Of course, there will be considerable "make-up" applied to
the streets, intersections and pedestrian walk-ways. This will be
only incidental cost, compared to the functional improvements,
but they may be the most visible to-the visitors of our downtown
and the factor which will probably play the largest part in bring-
ing them back again ... and again ... and again.
NOW, THE REASON for these few words is very simple. The
project didn't just happen. It still hasn't happened, but there
has probably been more planning, more searching for a way,
more time deciding on a motif, than will be spent on finishing
the program from this point to completion.
There has been a faithful [sometime discouraged] committee
of citizens faithfully pursuing this goal for the better part of six
years. That's a long time to work on a plan. That's a long time to
work on anything, except the pyramids!
The committee has met numerous times over the past years.
They have done surveys. They have enlisted the assistance of the
Department of Architecture of the University of Florida. At times,
they have ,utilized the energy of several students, doing research.
They have traveled from Palatka to Chipley, looking at the re-
sults of similar plans. It hasn't been a "talk, talk" committee.
At times we have become exasperated with the seeming lack
of progress of the committee and its chairman, but the chair-
man, Wayne Taylor, didn't waste his time at the University of
Georgia way back when. Experience with he and his committee
was evidence he became a true "Bulldog". He's tenacious. That's
what it took to get the job this far and we know you will appre-
ciate it when the job is complete.



Broken Promise
THE FOLKS WHO promoted the success of passage of the
net ban constitutional amendment have apparently "snowed" the
people in another matter, it was learned Friday morning of last
week. The area daily newspapers shouted in 48-point headlines:
'"Net buy-back suspended; program out of money" It
seems the net buy-back program barely got cranked off before
the state was out of money; and unless you thought otherwise,'
there are ftill a- majority of nets out there which still haven't-
been 'bought"!
It was an ambitious program, buying up all the fishing nets
in Florida for pennies on the dollar of their worth. It sort of
makes you realize vihat a devastating economic blow the state of
Florida has perpetrated on a large segment of its people, doesn't
it? *
THE PROPONENTS OF the net banpromised they would
spend your tax money to buy ALL the nets in the possession of
fishermen and thus make the snuffing out of their livelihood OK.
The, people of Florida said; 'Yeah, that's more than fair. They
should be compensated for this dastardly deed we are about to
force upon them, so take the money and buy them out."
Only, the buy-back program has barely gotten underway and
it's out of money, already!
THAT WAS A pretty expensive constitutional amendment.
wasn't it? Here we spent $20 million of our tax money to ruin
the lives of thousands of people and cause an untold inconven-
ience to thousands more, just so some sportsmen would be sat-
isfied. At the rate we are going the state of Florida is not going to
be believed anywhere. First, a lottery to finance, adequately, the
school system. The system is cutting back and scrounging for ,-
money to operate with. Next, we put the fishermen out, of busi-
ness with a promise to buy their nets and then we run out of
money. .
Are you satisfied, sportsmen?

I see where they had this big
meeting on women's rights over
in China or Hong Kong or some-
place way off like that. I think
they had it scheduled for Somer-
set, Kentucky but the local may-
or, Bubba Boone stood in the
door way of the Elk's Lodge banT
quet hall and decried "over my
dead body." 'Course, most of the
locals got a chuckle out of that-
Winnie Boone had been telling
Bubba and most of the rest of the
town what to do for years. Word

content to simply plod through
life until Winnie got behind him

Listen here, I'm not a fooll I'm
not about to get into anything
concerning women's rights. I'm
all for 'em. If they want to have a
conference in China, I'm all for
that, too. I did ask my Aunt Ruby

elected China?" She thought a
minute and said, "Two reasons:
one. they probably need some se-
rious women's rights looking-into
over there; and two, they were
trying to get away from that
N.O.W. organization. You talk
about some ugly ladies! I resent
that that group even pretends to
represent me. They're out of
touch with reality! I think the
ugly blinds-"
"Ruby Nell, I got'cha."
"I don't need any organization
with a bull moose on the cover
looking out for my interest" She
picked up my commemorative
Stan Musial baseball bat and
waved it around to 'accentuate
her point. I backed rapidly into
the kitchen.
"Aunt Ruby, I understand-"
"I was doing exactly what I
wanted to do sixty years ago. You
think any of those ladies-"
"Aunt Ruby, let me show you
where Stan signed-"
"Don't change the subject!
You're the one who brought it
up." She smiled, I saw her face
soften-then came the world fa-
mous laugh that I have cherished
since I was three years old. "Kes,
this is 1995-you can't write any


of this in your little story, can
you?"
"No ma'am. probably not-"
"You don't want to offend the
N.O.W. movement or have them
sic the Civil Liberties Union on
you." She pondered a moment
and then said more to herself
than us, "I sometimes can't tell in
this country whether we're mov-
ing frontwards or backwards ."
The first woman I ever "got to
know" was my Mother. I didn't
have a clue as to "rights" or bra
burning or being liberated or
equal pay for equal work back
then-but, I knew this lady was
the absolute best person in the
whole world.
Forty,eight years later amid a
world that prides itself on rapid
change, futuristic ideals, liposuc-
tion and the internet-that lady is
still, without a doubt, the abso-
lute best person in the whole
world.
Mothers have done more to
advance women's rights than all
the N.O.W. meeting apd world
conferences put together.
I could give you ten thousand
examples from the early days of
Mom's quiet resolve, a soft spok-
en word or her dogged determina-


ton-depending on the situa-
tion-that led us to understand
she was in control . of her-
self, her family and her surround-
ings. Folks, you can't have more
rights than that.
I failed to close the back gate
once. By late afternoon we had
cows spread across parts of two
counties. Leon was at football
practice and I couldn't blame it
on him. I was in deep trouble! It
was near 'bout midnight when
Daddy came in with the last cow.
I had,put on two extra pair of un-
derwear and tucked my shirttail
way down in my pants .... Dad-
dy was taking off his belt as he
came through the kitchen. I took
one look at his face-I was about
to be killed ....
"Son, we only have one rule
.about gates--'
"Lonnie." my Mother's voice
was barely audible, but it stopped
a mad, charging bull as he
reached for my arm, "The boy is
10 years old. He made a big mis-
take. One he won't make again.
He has cried all afternoon. Whip-

2,131 Baseball Games Played Without Missing Is Quite An Achievement


I WAS ONE of the millions of
people who witnessed Cal Rip-
kin's 2,131st consecutive base-
ball game he played in for the
Baltimore Orioles. I guess I can
now tell my great-grandchildren I
witnessed that unusual event via
television.
I would tell my grandchil-
dren, someday, of that momen-
tous occasion, but they were all
watching it too. I'm not real sure
whether they all realized the sig-
nificance of playing, consecutive-
ly, 2,131 games of anything, with-
odt missing a single scheduled
outing.
As my grandson, who is deep
into baseball commented, 'That's
awesome!" I'm about in as much
of a dither, waiting to see Kesley's
column on Cal as I was to see if
the event was going to happen
and waiting for the. final day. To
baseball buffs, that was about
next in line to the second coming.
I'm not being sacrilegious


here. REAL baseball fans give
that much importance to baseball
and the records made on the
playing field. Kes is a REAL base-
ball fan, as if you couldn't tell
from his writings in The Star.'
Just to verify what I'm saying
here, let me tell you that Kes
spent his honeymoon at: Busch
Stadium, watching his beloved
Cardinals play. The doorbell on
his home plays, 'Take Me Out to
the Ball Game" when you go there
for a visit. He has a room at his
home filled with baseball memor-
abilia and is called-for want of
something more in keeping with
the room-his "Baseball Room".


BUT, WE'RE TALKING about
Cal Ripken, here, not Kesley Col-
bert.
It takes that kind of devotion
to the game, I suppose, to make
one want to play 2,131 consecu-
tive games without a rest stop in
among those games somewhere.
The thing which impressed,
me the most, was that Cal Ripk-
en, like the person whose record
he broke, was more interested in
playing the game well than he
was at receiving the many acco-
lades for his performance record.
In other words, he was no Deion
Sanders, no Ty Cobb, no Chris


Sabo; you get the idea.
Cal Ripkin seems to be a, reg-
ular "aw shucks" kind of guy. He
seemed to be the last person who
was overly impressed with his
record. He seemed to take the at-
titude that "It was my job wasn't
it? I was getting paid, well, for do-
ing something I dearly love to do,
wasn't I? Why shouldn't I play
every day then, for as long as
they will let me?"

THERE ARE OTHER base-
ball players, playing today, being
Said unbelievable salaries, who
sit on the bench every time they
get a hangnail. I don't intend to
pick 'on Delon, but he comes.
readily to mind. Didn't Delon sit
out several games this year be-
cause he had, a little headache?
Reckon Cal never had a head-
ache? ... at game time? In 2,131
games, he must have. But, the
fans expected him to play, and
his employer was paying him sev-


eral million dollars a year to play,
so he played!
I suppose the same situation
happened to Mickey Mantle, who
was bothered with bad legs in his
playing days. Surely Lou Gehrig,
who was diagnosed with a fatal
disease a short while after he set
the record Cal broke, suffered
through many games,- especially
the last year he played.
We know Dale Murphy played
hurt before he purposely missed
a play date, some 750 games into
a record of his own.
On top of all that, Lou, Dale,
Ozzie Smith, Lee Smith, Yogi Ber-
ra, Warren Spahn, Joe Dimaggio
-and we could name many oth-
ers-were gentlemen who played
and represented baseball well.

THE ONLY CRITICAL com-
ment I could make. about the
whole episode is; what about the
poor slob who has worked at his
grinding job all his life-for up to


maybe, 40 years-and never
missed a day sick or hurt, for just
a living wage?
Usually, he doesn't get any
notice, other than a handshake
or a plaque-maybe a gold
watch-when he ends his skein of
work days. The only incentive he
has is to do a good job and give
his employer a good day's work
for his salary.
There's a corollary here, in a
way. The poor slob we're talking
about, doesn't get any special no-
tice and doesn't expect one.

THE ORIOLES WERE my fa-
vorite team in years past. They
have had many other fine players,
with a good attitude, as have the
Braves, the team I currently fol-
low. I tend to hold those on a ped-
estal and disregard the others; no
matter how good they play or how
much they are paid. i
For instance, I respect
players like Rafael Belflard.

I had no sisters. I knew noth-
ing about "girls my own age" until
grade school. And then mostly I
hung with the guys. One day at
lunch LaRenda Bradfield strolled
over to my table, "Kesley, are you
going to eat that cornbread?"
LaRenda taught me that girls
are human. They have the same
wants and needs as I do. As a
matter of fact she ate my corn-
bread for years and years. I reck-
on her eating need was greater
than mine.
I trust the women's rights
conference went well. I hope they
obtain all their goals in a timely
manner. If they want to observe
some ladies who understand their
rights and are using them wise-
ly-they ought to "set up" as ex-

Wells told the board he had
received a response from DCA but
that they didn't give a clear
answer.
The board decided to: go
ahead, with their application, not-
ing their intentions to pass the
administration expenses on to
property owners and that their
acceptance of the money would
have no bearings on the pending
joint lawsuit on the state's dis-
pursement of 22 million dollars of
federal flood relief money given to
Leon and Wakulla counties.

MEET WITH DOT
Chief Administrator Don
Butler told the board he and
Commissioner Warren Yeager had,
met with the Department of
Transportation to discuss the
possibility of redesignating C-30
as a state-maintatied road.
Butler said the request had
been submitted to DOT and that
they seemed receptive to the idea,
but it would be four to six months
before the county would receive
an answer.
Bids to Pave Courthouse
Parking Lot
The board unanimously
awarded C. W. Roberts Contract-
ing the bid to pave the courthouse
parking lot and entrance way.
Roberts' bid of $50,263.75 was
$18,557.65 lower than the next
closest bidder, Florida Asphalt

Board Chairman Hammond
suggested the board widen the
entrance ways two feet on each
side so two-way traffic can com-
fortably pass each other while

Memory of
Ernest J. Goff
On September 17, 1970, on a
Wednesday night the Lord called my
Daddy home to be with Him. He left
behind a loving wife, son, and daugh-
ter. It has been 25 years and the pain
is still here. My Daddy has missed
out on a lot. First my graduation
and he would have been proud
because not only did I graduate, I
graduated with honors and I married
a wonderful man, and I have two
beautiful .kids who would be their
Granddad's heart. There is so much
Daddy missed out on, but on this
25th anniversary of his death I would
like to say, "Daddy, I love you so
much and I will always, always have
you in my heart. I'll never forget the
happy times we shared. Port St. Joe
lost a good man, Mom lost her best
'friend and husband, my brother and I
lost our best friend and father.
We love you Daddy
Your little girl,
Alice Marie (Goff) Martin

St. Joe Loses 12-6 In Overtime


Chipley's T. J. Simmons'
three yard run in overtime broke
a 6-6 tie and gave the Sharks'
cross/district rivals a 12-6 foot-
ball victory in Chipley Friday
night.
Chipley controlled the tempo
of the game utilizing their running
duo of Simmons, and Collert to
grind out yardage while keeping
the ball out 'of the hands of the
Shark offense.
The defense did their job,
holding Ch'ipley to only six points
during regulation play. But, the
Shark offense puttered through-
out most of the contest, scoring
their only points of the evening
midway through the second quar-
ter.
Quarterback Ryan Yeager
connected with Cameron Likely
on a fade pass to the corner of the


end zone for six points after a bad
snap from the Tigers' center on a
punt attempt gave the Sharks
good field position on the Tiger's
14 yard line. It took only one play
from scrimmage for St. Joe to
score, But, an unsportsmanlike
conduct penalty on Likely after
the play reflected the way the
game went for the Sharks.
The 15 yard penalty tacked
onto the extra point attempt
forced a 35 yard point-after-try by
kicker Barry Adkison that was no
good. The Sharks led 6-3 with
4:24 remaining in the half but the
missed extra point attempt would
come back to haunt them in the
second half.
Chipley drew first blood in the
contest after stopping the Sharks
on their first series. They took
their first possession and drove


the length of the field to the Shark
11 yard line. The Shark defense
held, but a 29-yard field goal
attempt by the Tigers was good
giving them an early 3-0 lead with
6:04 remaining in the first quar-
ter. .
Chipley tied the game at 6-6
with another field goal in the third
quarter. The Tigers took the open-
ing kickoff in the second half and
used 7:12 of the third quarter dri-
ving to the Shark eight yard line
before kicking the 25 yard game-
tying field goal.
The Sharks managed just
four offensive plays in the third
quarter using only 54 seconds off
the clock during the period as
penalties, bad breaks and the
time-consuming running attack
of 'the Tigers kept the offensive

unit off the field.
Chipley's T. J. Simmons did it
all for the Tigers during the over-
time period. Intercepting quarter-
back Ryan Yeager's pass attempt
intended for Likely on the second
down of the Sharks' offensive
series. He then carried the ball for
the Tigers all three of their over-
time downs, scoring from three
yards out on his final try to chalk
up the win for the Tigers.
Defensively
Chad Quinn led all tacklers
with 14, closely followed by JustiO
Summers with 11. Carlos Best
had eight, Rocky Quinn seven,
and Kyle Adkison six. Cameron
Likely had six tackles with .one
interception and one sack.
Offensively
Brian Jenkins rushed the ball
17 times for 53 yards. Cameron
Likely had three pass receptions
for 52 yards and one touchdown.
Rocky Quinn had two catches for
15 yards and Jamaall Fenn and
Chad Quinn had one catch each
for 10 yards and four yards,
respectively. Quarterback Ryan
Yeager threw 19 passes with
seven completions, one for a
touchdown, and three intercep-
tions.

The X-Ray


Examination


During a dental examina-
tion, the dentist will need to
take x-rays in order to confirm
the findings from his clinical
examination. These x-rays
should include films showing
all of the roots of the teeth, as
well as clear views in between
teeth where they contact each
other.
A full examination, recom-
mended at first visit and then
approximately every thirty-six
months (or when a problem is
suspected) might include any-
where from sixteen to twenty-
two films.
The reason for this many
films is that the dentist needs
to see clearly the following


areas: all root tips, the sinus-
es, the bone around the teeth
and behind the last teeth, and
the contacts between all the
teeth.
On the other hand, for pe-
riodic checks approximately
every six months four bite-
wing x-rays should suffice.
Though these will not show
the root tips or bone very well,
they will show any new cavi-
ties which have formed and
cannot be seen visually.

point for a 7-0 lead.
Matt Kearce, who played
quarterback in place of injured
Tranum McLemore, connected
with Andrew Williams on a five
yard touchdown pass with 5:16
remaining in the first quarter for a
13-0 lead. Hysmith added a 14
yard touchdown run late in the
first quarter to put the Gators on
top 19-0, but Mincy's kick failed.
Kearce, who had 88 yards
passing and 43 yards rushing,
scored on a one yard run early in
the second quarter and Hysmith
kicked the extra point. With 4:40
remaining in the half, David
Hysmith broke through the line of
scrimmage and blocked a Havana
punt that Tim Hysmith returned
for a 70 yard touchdown. The kick
failed and Wewa took a command-
ing 32-0 lead into the half.
Early in the third quarter
Kearce connected with Williams
again for a 10 yard touchdown

for Female Athletes
With every school year stu-
dent needs arise that are in ex-
cess of the planned budgeting
making it necessary to plan fund-
raising activities.
Last year the girls sports pro-
gramsL at Port St. Joe High School
conducted a multi-prize give-
away which earned approximately
$800 in useful funding. Many lo-
cal merchants donated small priz-
es to the fund-raiser making it a
great success.
This year the coaches and fe-
male athletes will be repeating
the event and hope to be giving
away even more prizes than last
year. Several prizes will be given
away during each home football
game. Tickets can be obtained by
making a $2.00 donation. All
tickets will remain in the drawing
bin throughout all of the football
season-removed only when you
win a prizel
They would like to recognize
and thank the following mer-
chants for the prizes they donat-
ed to benefit the programs last
year: Active Styles Beauty Salon,
Athletic House, Badcock Furni-
ture, C & M Sports, Citizens Fed-
eral Savings Bank, Raffield's

pany, and Western Auto.

September

Over 150 Viab
by Carol Rollick
September's full moon Illumi-
nated our beaches this weekend
guiding hundreds of newly
hatched turtles to the water's
edge. A confetti of egg shells, tat-
tered and .curling in the hot sun,
is all that is left on the sand.
Loggerhead turtles, the predomi-
nant species in our area are mak-
ing a comeback. Recently, logger-
heads. have been removed from
the "endangered" list and reclas-
sified as "threatened." For this we
can say thanks to the devoted
efforts of our Turtle Patrol.
Unlike most of us, for the past
.'five:. years, Pam and Herman
Jones, have :not ended their day
with their feet propped up, sip-
ping a long, cqol drink. Instead,
from May through October, their
energies are dedicated to chart-
ing, protecting, and assisting the
hatchings of sea turtles. The
Joneses drive from St. Joe Beach
to the Cape at least five times a
week to search the shares for tur-
tle kraals, those tractor-like trails
in the sand that mark a turtle's
nest or attempt at one. So far this
year, the viable nest count at the
Cape is a whopping 130, taxing
.the endurance of even the hard-
working Joneses.
West of Port St. Joe to
,'Tyadall, Barbara Eells, another
";>.five year veteran, with Paula
Boone and Gail Piccola, forgo
their leisure to preserve and pro-
tect one of our planet's most ven-
erable creatures. Working the
Indian Pass area, Judy and Harry
Paul are ,completing their third
year of the grueling task and
going strong. Also assisting the
worthy cause are Allen Richie and
Dick Schweikert.
Turtle Patrol volunteers are
registered with the state. Incred-
ibly, they not only spend their
own time and energy, but their
own money in their efforts. The
supplies to stake and screen the
nests are for the most part
gleaned from discards. Appropri-
ately, the yellow "crime scene"
tape is donated by the sheriffs
office and the fire department. It
signals "hands off' to the curious.'
There is no compensation for the
long, hard hours, nor for gasoline
and vehicle wear and tear.
The tides' of Hurricane Erin
swept away approximately 50% of
Sthe ';38 Indian. Pass,: nests this
year. Normally a safe nesting
area, only six had been relocated.
The 16 nests west of Port St. Joe
to Tyndall had all been moved and
were unaffected. Although most of
the nests on the Cape were origi-
nally moved or deemed safe- the
Joneses and Barbara Eells
worked a long, hard day prior to
the storm's passage relocating
nests that were in marginal place-
ment.
"Lights Out" is the watchword
at beach-houses this month and
next. We are approaching the
peak of this year's hatchings

Core Tells "War Story"

At Rotary Meeting


Like all good old soldiers in
this anniversary year of the end
of the "big" war, Rotarian George
Core reminisced about his army
days from 1943 to the end of the
war, last Thursday, for the club.
Core said he went into the
army, along with a bus-load of re-
cruits from here, Wewahitchka,
Apalachicola, Carrabelle, Sop-
choppy, Panacea and Wakulla.
They were transported to Camp
Blanding, near Jacksonville, and
taken into the army.
The group was taken, intact,
to FortBliss, Texas at El Paso for
basic training. After Basic, they
*efit to the South Pacific theatre
to Saipan. which was-a stone's'
throw from Tinlan, where the Ino-
la Gay took olff on its atomic
bombing missions.
'We arrived, along with an ar-
mada of ships and transports,
and. had to wait three days before
we could unload. A bug gun the
Japanese had on Tinian, had us
pinned down so we couldn't ap-
proach our landing site," he said.
When Core and his artillery com-
pany disembarked, they had their
guns but no ammunition to fire
in them.
Core said he witnessed train-
ing exercises for the dropping of
the bomb and the preparations
made to handle it. "Of course,
there didn't any of us know what
was being prepared for, nor what
had happened when the big bomb
was delivered. We had never
heard of any atomic bomb," he re-
lated.
"Every unit had a comedian


and we had ours," he said, begin-
ning a humorous story. "One day,
toward the end of the war, it was
rumored General McArthur and
several other Generals were going
to visit our base. We all worked
hard getting everything prepared
to receive the brass and had the
base all spit and polish," the
speaker said.
The entire island was white
coral and it was like walking on
face powder, he said.
'The day came for the visit
and all the commissioned officers
from the vicinity were gathered to
greet him, when we heard that
the visit had been cancelled. They
all drove oilff in a cloud of witte
dust, disheartened. About the
time they got out of sight, some-
one announced over the commu-
nication system, "here comes the
General's planee" and here came
all the commissioned officers hur-
rying back to greet him again."
Core said there was a three
day investigation, to find out who
had put that message out on the
communication system, "But, to
this day they have never found
out," he said.
Core said he went through
the last two years of the war with
the same group he was taken into
the Army with and all of them
came back. 'We had only one
man killed, and he was shot in
the forehead, when curiosity got
the better of him and he had
abandoned caution to peer over
into a hole. A sniper shot him in
the center of his forehead and
killed him," Core reported.

ing and mental health center. It is not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment ser-


vices.
Dear Counselor,
Helpl I am-writing this locked
in my bathroom. My wife just. hit
me with a frying pan for no reason
at all! She always seems to lose
her temper about this time every
month. Later she will tell me she
has PMS and that when this;
occurs, everything about me irri-
tates her. I really love her and
consider myself happily married
most of the time, but I'm not sure,
how much more I can take of this.
She acts like she's possessed -
besides calling a priest, what can,
I do?
Hiding out in Hosford
Dear Hiding Out,
PMS (pre-menstrual syn-.
drome) is a condition that only
recently has been studied and
given some credibility by the med-
ical profession. Symptoms vary in
type, duration, and Intensity.
These can be weight gain, bloat-'
ing, over-sensitivity, and physical
complaints ranging from' head-
aches to .nausea. Most women
who report having. PMS have
short-lived symptoms for only a
few days. The symptoms last until
the onset of menstruation or.
shortly after the -onset. Other
women report a mild feeling of
irritation and an increased ten-
dency to cry about things they
might take personally when such
actions were not meant personal-
ly. There are some good over-the-
counter remedies which can alle-
viate some or all of the above
symptoms in many women.
There are also natural reme-
'dies which studies show may be
effective: vigorous exercise, cut-
ting down on fats, salt, caffeine,

and refined sugar in the two
weeks prior to menstruation can
often decrease the severity bof the
problem.
Sometimes what some women
call PMS is something else entire-
ly. The underlying problems of
depression or anxiety can aggtgv-
cate the, hormonal changes mak-
ing a woman appear to 'have
severe PMS, Such Women can and
should be 'evaluated by a physi-
cian to see if an anti-anxiety or
,anti depressant medicine 'is indl-
cated. Counseling mighthelp this-
person if unresolved anger is at
the core of the problem.
Regardless of the -causes,
your wife is an adult.and is there-
fore responsible for her actions
and behavior. It is her responsibil-
ity to do whatever she can to end
Both her and your'suffering. Just
as a rational person would take
an-aspirin for a headache, so it is
logical and responsible for your
wife to take' sohe' responsibility
for dealing with this problem',.,
I'd hate to see you spend any
more time hiding from your wife.
When she is rational again, please
show her this article. It is my hope
that she' will respond positively.
Good luck!

have walked to work. I measured
the distance by car, and it is al-
most exactly a mile. At first I var-

discover the best route. Now, I
find myself walking the same
streets, and rarely change 'my

back at lunch-time on many.
days, and also walk home from
work, too. By noon, of course, it
is so hot that yesterday I told my
co-workers that,if I was ever later

from lunch, to come looking for,

stopped at an air-conditioned

just to cool off. I discovered which

just walk, walk, walk and don't
think as much about shade, or

stopped and offered me rides in
one 15-minute period than prob-
ably I ever got offered in Gig Har-
bor, Washington where we lived
for eight years. Of course, in that
town, half the population seemed
to be walkers. There was a four-

walks that were the town favorite.

other walkers. \
Yesterday, on my way to
work, I tried to verbalize in my
head why I like the morning the
best. There's the obvious reason
about how cool it is comparatively
at that time of day. Then there's
the fact that the birds know it's
cooler then, and are out in great-
er number enjoying God's crea-
tion like I am. I suppose my very
favorite is the park 'across from
the Stac House. I don't even know
its name. I've seen various people
mowing and maintaining it, to
keep It' at Its "finest beauty. It
looks like a nice park, but I have,
never stepped my foot into it. You
see, I have found that wearing
sandals walking, if I step into the ;
grass or sand along the road. I of-
ten get my ankles eaten alive by
critters I can never see.
Each day, I admire the beau-
ty of the park. Sometimes, I can,
visualize a painting of the park. It
is a quiet stretch to walk along.
Occasionally, there will be a child
on a bicycle nearby, but usually I
have that stretch all to myself. It's.
a. good place to pray or sing


praise. That park makes me feel
glad that I am alive
Yesterday, while walking
along 8th Street, a creature that
looked like a miniature bear rose
up out of the brush. This animal
had the same shaped nose as the
black bear I once saw in our pas-
ture in Washington state. It was
my neighbor's dog. I have seen
this dog in its fenced-in area
'many times and always it has en-
joyed barking furiously at me.
This encounter was my first out-
side the fence, up close. Its hair
was covered with dead grass and
who knows what else-it ap-
peared to have been swimming in
the canal. I suddenly pictured
myself either late for work be-
cause I had to go home to change
clothes (and maybe bandage my-
sell). or arriving at work not only
needing to mop my face off, but
also wash the dog slobbers from
my navy pants.
I told the dog 'how beautiful
he was, and he paused to look at
me. Then, he trotted on home,
like the good dog he was. I could'
Tell he enjoyed the park as much
as 1, and didn't want to Jeopardize
his privileges, even by Jumping on
me and saying hello.

ROUND-UP

News So Scary


You Can't Nap In


Church Anymore

It's Enough to Bring On A
Prozac Headache If You Let It
;It's .getting so, an old reporter can't even take a nap in church any-
more, a privilege of age (unless y.ou snore) that no one but your wife will
criticize.
I've been napping In church for years. In fact, I've always said that if
a church can't make me feel close enough to my maker to take a little
snooze It really isn't doing its job.
But npt anymore ... ..
Nowadays, instead of napping, I'm reviewing in my mind the week's
news to put in this column for the early edition weekly newspapers.
!. That can be scary. For instance:
,' Tourism shows signs of replacing oystering in Apalachicola Bay, says
dne story. Racism works its way back into our language and lives as the-
1~-word seenristo be everywhere, reads another. Traditional schools to be
placedd by com Pterized home education studies, screams a third head-
line. .
?, It's enough to bring on a Prozac headache until you realize that many
of those threatening changes are.trumped up crises like the "train wreck"
liberal Democrats say the country Is headed for.since they lost control of
Congress arid the Florida Senate.
Even if some of those changes do occur they'll very probably be a lotf
; better for most everybody. These aren't the goodold days, you know. They
never are.
Tourism coupled with continued oyster harvesting could be a great
boon for old Apalachicola. Health scares and unpredictable harvesting
shutdowns have depressed prices, but they do not mean the bay which
produces most of Florida's oysters is out of business. Times are tough
when you consider the hit net fishermen are taking throughout the state
with the net ban, but shrimp trawlers may make a comeback, especially
if the courts allow them to take fish as well as shrimp in their trawls.
There is a bright side to it too. An expanded sports fishing industry needs
guides and professional fishermen to show them how to do it. Prestol A
new profession. The new is often better than the old, although it's diffit-
cult to recognize If you're the one doing the changing.
The N-word brouhaha brought on by the tapes of Detective Mark.
Furman and the slick defense dream team in the, 0. J. Simpson case that
wants a trial on anything but double murder doesn't mean racism is
working its' way back into American life, Florida papers reported last
week.
Sadly, racism is still with us and probably always will be (human
nature being what it is), but it s certainly not worse now than it was when
I started out In the newspaper business in 1945. We've come a long way
since then in this old melting pot of a country, but the N-word survived.
:" Today it's commonly used in rap music and in black communities by'
lack o9ufhs. It's only hateful; ft seems.'wheri used'by whites. '
It has always beeirthat way. This old written-word journalist, moon-
lighting on a radio news show in Tennessee in the early 1950s, was told
to pronounce the word Negro (the term we used back then) as Nee-gro,
like in Nee-High, the name of a popular soft drank of the era. Later we
changed that to blacks, then African-Americans.
; In the 1960s in West Sacramento, California, while editing a commu-
nity newspaper. I was called down by some Japanese readers for referring.
to them as Japanese-Americans. They came in and told me they weren't
hyphenated Americans, just Americans like everybody else.
Theywere right, of course. but it's confusing.
The N-word has taken on an entire new meaning as a racial slur.
Used in a term --nigger mentality"-by Gerald Gee, a white assistant'
professor at predominantly black Florida A & M University. it made him'
a victim of racial discrimination. He used it In September, 1993. to chal-
lenge his class to quit complaining about not having a public relations
outlet for their work and start working on the problem. Some students
protested.
FAMU President Frederick Humphries tried to fire him almost imme-
diately, but was stopped by the faculty union and Board of Regents.
Instead, he delayed giving him tenure and In April of this year informed
him in a letter that his last day at the university will be when he submits
final grades for his, class in the spring term of 1996.
Many of the students at FAMU, according to a poll, have forgiven Key,
a white liberal ordained Methodist minister who likes his job and want,,
him to stay. But not the powerful president of one of the nation's best"
black universities.. Who is the bigot here? .. '
Education Commissioner Frank Brogan has another kind of a prob-
lem with his task force formed to examine Florida's public education sys-
tem to see If meets the needs of the 21st century. They could decide to
recommend to the, 1966 legislatureto begin replacing traditional schools
vith electronic home-study centers thus ending the public school system
of crowded centralized buildings as we know it today. Think about the
adjustments that would require in families, child care, and the public
school establishment.. -
v Scary but maybe very worthwhile, huh? ..



Here's the Capitol News Report
Education Commissioner Frank Brogan has recommended a $10.4-
biillon spending plan for Florida's public education system In 1966 that
rewards districts which prepare kids for college, but ignores Charter
schools and full health services to the poor.
The plan calls for a $594 million increase over this year's spending to
handle 67,000 more students expected in the system.
n The good news for Department of Education employees is that Brogan
has no immediate plans for more job cuts. The bad news is he hasn't
ruled them out either. Some 350 positions-not people-are: expected to
be eliminated by the end of the year. By the end of this month, some 60
people who the administration couldn't find jobs elsewhere for will be out
of work.
SGov. Lawton Chiles, who strongly favors full-service schools for the
poor and mildly likes Charter schools, eliminated both from Brogan's
plans by vetoing the expenditure of money on policies set in the compro-
mise budget committee, not on the floor of both houses. Chiles also elim-
inated money to cap first grade classes at 20 students (a proposal spon-
sored by House Speaker Peter Wallace) when he took the policy issue to
the Florida Supreme Court and won.
CHILES DELAYS SESSION CALL: Gov. Lawton Chiles will not call a


special session on his thrice defeated health care plan in September.
Instead, he'll follow: the advice he is getting to postpone it until
:October after Congress acts on the federal budget and Medicaid formula.
In. fact, in the face of unified opposition from lawmakers and a changing
political picture nationally, he may abandon it entirely.
Chiles wants to offer low-cost health coverage to working, uninsured
Floridians. He got a waiver from the Clinton administration of federal.
rules on Medicaid spending which would give the state extra money to
subsidize the insurance. The state's share would come from savings
gained by forcing more Medicaid patients into health maintenance man-
aged care plans.
PLEASE PASS THE BUDGET KNIFE: Yep, Florida Senate Ways and
Means Chairman Marin Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, is once again asking state
agencies to devise plans for a 25 percent budget cut next year. It's not
that he expects to cut government that much (they increased it last year),
but he considers the belt-tightening exercise has a healthy slimming


Attempt to

Salvage

Juveniles,

Program in Gulf Co.
is Having Success
Socrates was concerned
about rebellious children and the
effect they were having on his
Greek nation, many years ago.
Melissa Ramsey told the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday by way of introduc-
tion to the importance of the re-
cently established Juvenile Jus-
tice Paritnership program here ri
Gulf County.
For statistics to emphasize,
her address, Mrs. Ramsey said
two of three, in the program [from
8 to 17 years of age] have absent
fathers or else they are in jail.
"Not much of a home influence,"
the speaker observed.
The average of the 34 youth;
involved in the re-molding pro-
gram was described as possess-.
ing one or more of these:
*92% living in single parent'
homes.
*75% with a parent or sibling
with a criminal record.
*85% have been. charged at
some time with substance abuse.
'The cost of dealing with
these youth in the courts and the
damage they cause to the general.
public is astronomic. If we can
develop a workable relationship
between the parents, schools and,
law enforcement, we believe we
can reduce this annual cost," the
speaker said.
VISIBLE RESULTS IN GULF
She said that already, visible
results are being seen in Gulf
County. After one full year of op-
eration and a portion of another
year, a 50% reduction has been
seen in school absenteeism. Un-
excused absences are down 62%
among participants. It has result-
ed in a 35% reduction in school
suspensions, and a rising grade,
point average by nearly a full half
point,"Which is very significant
among these students. It meant
that some of them qualified for
the honor roll for the first time,"
she pointed out.
The Juvenile Justice program
has targeted a quasi home atmos-
phere as its best training tool.
'We tutilize the law enforcement
agencies, the parents and the '
schools to try to mole them into
responsible citizens through rec-
ognizing their responsibilities and4
need for proper deportment."
The program requires two-
hour after school sessions, two
days a week with counsellors
both in Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka. The sessions last for a
period of 20 weeks. They are ex-
posed to such subjects as; con-
flict resolution, recreation, tutor-
ing, anger/anidety management,
employable:, skills, drug/alcohol'
education, problem solving, dis-
cussions and group counseling.
Ten students are enrolled in
each 20-week session and each
class.
Mrs. Ramsey said the pro-
gram needs help from the general
public to serve ap role models,
counselors and people to serve as
big brothers and sisters.
Guests of the club were Key
Clubbers Deann Redmon, Amy
Buzzett, Clay Whitfield and Jay
Dixon. Also Visiting was Dr. Steve
Newton of Port St. Joe.


effect on the bureaucracy.
FISHY NETS: Gov. Lawton
Chiles has launched an investiga-
tion into charges that commercial
fishermen have been converting
$500 gill nets into seine nets to
sell to the state in the net buy-
back program for $3,500.
A Labor Department spokes-
man said expanding nets and
depleting the $20 million in the
net buy-back program appears to
be legal, but it is bringing the pro-
gram to a halt while the state
looks for another $1 million to
cover pending claims by fisher-
men put out of work July 1 by the
net ban.

Girl Scout uniforms have
gone contemporary. After exten-
sive research involving girls and
adults and their opinions on the
Girl Scout uniforms, all age-levels
from Daisy Girl Scouts all the
way up to adult Girl Scouts will
be sporting a new look. Daisy Girl
Scouts can now choose between
the Daisy Girl Scout tunic with a
new long-sleeve t-shirt under it or
a short-sleeve t-shirt and shorts.
Brownie Girl Scouts have a whole
group of coordinates to mix and
match. They can choose shorts
and a t-shirt or a new cocoa
brown knit skirt or even a floral
print jumper with a blue chami-
bray-look shirt.
Juniors have a wide range of
jade green and periwinkle blue
coordinates to choose from in-
cluding leggings, oversized sweat-
shirts and t-shirts as well as the
more formal blouse, skirt, and
traditional vest. Cadette and Sen-
ior Girl Scouts will be sporting
contemporary, fun, sportswear
pieces featuring sweatshirts, box-
pleated skirts, baseball caps, and
scrunch 'socks with an updated
version of the formal uniform.
Adult Girl Scouts will be looking
very professional in their forest
green suit components.
Adults are also needed to vol-
unteer their time. The Girl Scout
Council of the Apalachee Bend
has approximately 5,200 mem-
bers and 1,250 are -adults. It's
very easy for an adult to help
with the Girl Scouts whether he
or she wants to become a leader,
co-leader, office helper, mentor,
or event coordinator. The organi-
zation needs strong leadership
and role models for girls who oth-
erwise may not have a chance at
Girls Scouting.

Greensboro-7 P.M.-Fridayl
Not this week, but next week
(Thursday), the first six weeks
comes to an end and that means
tests and report cards. It also
means that some who have not
been eligible to play sports may
then be able to play ... and some
who've been playing may not be
able to play for at least the next
six weeks. This is a definite in-
centive for some borderline stu-
dents to do better and improve
their grades. Remember athlet-
ics is supposed to be a reward for
good academic performance. It
does matter to some!
Last Friday's win over Hava-
na was too easy, but at least it
makes you appreciate the facili-
ties and the programs that our
students in fiufl Cbunty" have a't-e
their disposal. It also shoWs the*
need for us to treat visitors to our
facilities with respect. Maybe it
will rub off on some that could
stand improvement.
The J.V. football team's win
over Apalachicola last week was
impressive for Coach Grant
Grantham's young team, but this
week they face a tougher oppo-
nent, Liberty County High School.
Liberty always has a good, young,
aggressive bunch that will hit
hard. We'll have to play our best!
The varsity tackles a tough
Greensboro team Friday night at
home at 7 p.m. Adults and stu-
dents will be charged $4.00 at the
gate, but pre-sale tickets at the
high school are $3.00 and $2.00,


"-. The





Our christmas card sale is off
to a great start. Each student is ,
working hard to sell at least ten
boxes by this Friday to earn a
Hardee's lunch. The sales cam-
paign ends next Friday, Septem-
ber 22.
The test scores have finally
arrived. Faith Christian was a
participant in the standardization
of the SAT-9, a new series put out
by the Stanford Test Service of'
Harcourt Brace Educational
Measurement and The Psycholog-.
ical Corporation. This is the rea- -'
son our scores are so late and we
apologize for any inconvenience it
may have caused our parents or
our students who have trans-
ferred to other schools. Individual
scores may be picked up by par-
ents at the school office. Also, if
you have not picked up the 1994-
95 yearbook, please do so. All of
last year's students are eligible to
have one at no further cost.
This week we want to look at
our high school courses and
graduation requirements. The
graduation requirements are
much the same as those of the '
public school. We have a general
diploma which indicates that the
student has completed four units
of English, three of math, three of :,
science, three and one-half of his-
tory, and one semester each of
physical education, life manage- '
ment, vocational arts and partici-
pation arts. Along with these, a
student is required to have one
unit of Bible for each year of at-
tendance in grades 9-12. Some of
the units in English and math
can be remedial or basic. In addi-
tion to the courses listed above,


respectively. J.V. games are
,$3.00 and $2.00 at the gate, with
no pre-sale available.
Our volleyballers are sailing
along, but this past Tuesday they
tackled Rutherford High School,
their first real test. They've been
working hard and they expect to
be very competitive when district
rolls around. Wednesday they
played Port St. Joe at home at 1
p.m. and Thursday they will trav-
el to Liberty County for 3:30 and
4:00 matches.
Just like last year, there's
plenty to see if you want to sup-
port the Gators. Jay Bidwell's
cross country teams are running
well and will be hosting a meet
soon near the Taunton Children's
Home with eight or nine teams in-
vited. There is no charge to ob-
serve' these long distance run-
ners.
The band's new uniforms
have been well received, and they
are perfecting their half-time
show. Moving them, with instru-.
ments, is getting to be a full-time
job. That's the problem a growing
program presents.
Parents of younger chil-
dren-please keep up with yours
at the ball games. Don't send
young ones off by themselves, es-
pecially at away games. It can be
very dangerous, as shown by the
young man who got hit at Hava-
na. There is often little to no law
at many places we visit, and the
best thing to do is avoid putting
your child in a dangerous situa-
tion.

The American Quilt
Did you know the oldest
known American quilt is believed
to have been made in 1704? It
was lined with paper including,
part of a 1701 Harvard College
catalog! The T.E.A.M. classes
have been learning a lot about
quilts as part of Operation: Heri-
tage. They have researched some
of the traditional quilt patterns
used by our grandparents and
great-grandparents. These pat-
terns were often named after thI
common things they resembled.
There are patterns with -such
names as Weather Vane. Churn
Dash, and Wild Goose Chase.
T.E.A.M. students 'reproduced
these patterns Using colored and
designed paper. The resulting
paper quilt along with some inter-
esting facts they discovered about
quilts are on display in the WES
office. Go by and check it. out.
(My father had a variety store' in
Tennessee named after ,me,, .Su-
sie's 5 & 10, when I was growing
up. Once a customer owed -him
some money and asked if she
could pay by quilt. I now haye the
hand-made, octagonal patten,
made up of hundreds of small
pieces. Love itt)
Expository and Didn't Know It!
Third grader, Daryl Knee
wrote a story about how tb'make
a banana sandwich and know he was learning the rudi-
mentary procedures of a kind of
writing known as expositoryl Here
it is:
"I love bananas. Soometimes I
make a banana sandwich. It's
good. First you put mdyonaise on
the bread. Then you stice the ba-
nana and put It on the bread.
Then you put the piece of bread on
the other piece of bread. Then you
get some chips to go with it. Thenri
you eat it!"
Daryl is in Linda Whitfield's
class and is the son of Bobby anqc
Paula Knee.

September 10, 1995 is desig-
nated Grandparents' Day. I know
of. no group that deserves more
.recognition.
First, I think of my own. "Ma"
and "Pa" have been dead for some
time now. I only had one set of
grandparents. My father's parents
died when he was a child. But,
God gave me a double blessing in
the grandmother and grandfather
t had : .. '... ..
My grandmother was an in-
teresting woman. She was head-
strong, outspoken, but also ten-
der-hearted and compassionate.
She had a liking for strong coffee
and was never more at peace
than when she was fishing. She,
more that anyone else, taught me
to say "yes, ma'am" and "no
ma'am". (She gave me a dollar
every' time I said it during the
whole dayl) She was pained most
of her last years with those twin
cousins of affliction-bursitIs and
arthritis. "Ma, I'm getting to the
age where I can identify with
you." When it comes to the coffee.
the fishing, the headstrong and'
the outspoken, her blood promi-
nently courses through my veins.
My grandfather was very spe-
cial. God saw fit for us to share
the same birthday. Pa always told
everyone we were the same age.
He worked his way out of farming
and into the ownership of a coun-
try store. I can still close my eyes
and be rocking on the front porch
of that store sipping a Peach
Nehi. It was always amazing what
25 cents would buy when you fig-
ured in the grandson's discount!
Pa also raised hogs. I used to go
with him to feed them. If the need
arises, I can still call hogs with
the best of them. We also some-
times hunted together. Pa could
take a handful of shells and a
single-shot 12-gauge and put
those with the automatics to
shame. We inherited that old
gun. It Is a real kicker. You had
better make sure you have the'
gun firm against your shoulder
when you pull the trigger. You
don't have to be a man to shoot
Pa's gun. but it sure Is a big help.
My grandfather was a simple

and a felt hat (which he never
wore Inside). He seldom got up-
set. But. when he did, he had the
voice of E. F. Hutton and every-
body listened, he Influenced me
more than I can reflect in pen
and ink. In the roll call of faithful-
ness in Hebrews 11, it is said of
Abel, "by faith he still speaks,
even though he is dead: (Hebrews
11:4 NIXT). Like Abel. my grandfa-
ther is dead, but he still speaks,
at least to his grandson. The
Apostle Paul told young Timothy.
"1 have been reminded of your
,sincere faith, which first lived in
your grandmother, Lois, and in
your mother, Eunice, and I am
persuaded, now lives in you also"
1(2 Timothy 1:5). Faith Is not he-
reditary, but is sure can be con-
tagious.
I know families where the
grandparents are the only stable.

are raising their grandchildren. A
little girl once said, "A grandpar-

experience."
To the GRANDparents, our
hats are off, and we give you a
standing ovation
