FIFTY-EIGHTH YEAR, NUMBER 3


Met At The Pole
Approximately 200 students of Port St. Joe High
and Middle schools gathered, voluntarily, before the
school day began Wednesday, at 7:30 a.m., to take part
in a nation-wide observance by students, of their sup-
port of prayer in their daily life by gathering "At the
Pole" for a unified Christian devotional and period of
prayer.
The Port St. Joe observance was sponsored by the
Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter and was vol-
untarily attended by the large number of students.
They participated in the several activities, led by mem-
bers of the student body, Harmony Priest, Justin Sum-
mers, Matt Dixon, Kyle Adkison and Kristi Lawrence.
"Meet Me At the Pole" meets nationally, every year,
on the third Wednesday morning in September.

Mexico Beach Gets Price Tag


on Proposed Sewer System

Engineers Reveal Worst Scenario Costs to Community at $4.698 Million
in t- mond intalaio,. e


Some 20 interested residents
and the City Commissioners
learned Monday night that the
most Mexico Beach could expect
to pay for sewer being made avail-
able to the City, was $9.23 per
thousand gallons, after nearly six
months of speculation about
costs of up to $80.00 per month
for the service.
Jack Arthur, a representative
of Baskerville-Donovan, Engi-
neers, gave Mexico Beach Com-
missioners an in-depth report of
what they could expect by way of
expenses and responsibility,
should the City opt,to become a ,
part of the system.
Bay County is enlarging their,
present system, moving it to Mill-
tary Point on the Tyndall reserva-
tion. The disposal plant will in-
volve the cooperative input from
most of the cities of Bay County.
each bearing a portion of the ex-'
pense of operation.
S Mexico Beach has the oppor-
tunity of becoming a part of the,
disposal system for 4.8% percent'.
of the operation costs.
Mexico Beach would be re-,
sponsible, also, to build a trans-
mission line to Tyndall AFB [also
a potential customer of' the new"
proposed plant] and a collection :
system inside the city. That is
what Arthur reported on Monday
night, giving estimated costs
which he stressed could be low-
ered considerably by various
means.
'GRANT WOULD CUT COSTS
The main factor in lower
rates would be the high possibill-
ty of the City obtaining a con-
struction grant. Arthur's presen-
tation didn't take grants, or
""EclT'Trifferest rates,. or impact
fees, or minimum rates into con-
sideration. "These figures I'm giv- '"
ing you are based on Mexico
Beach not getting any breaks or
aid with construction costs. If you
had to go out on the money mar-
ket and borrow every penny it
would take and pay it back at
normal interest rates; this is what
it would cost," Arthur reported.
Arthur mentioned that the
City, was almost certain to be-
come eligible for at least a 30%
grant and a low interest FmHA
loan which would reduce costs
considerably. He pointed out
Mexico Beach is eligible for other
grants as well.


PRICE TAG
The entire price-tag on a sys-
tem. up and operating, would be
$4.698 million, or $887,000 a
,;year.
The engineer revealed the
City has 1.379 water customers,
pointing out the debt, divided be-
'tween the number of customers
would cost in the neighborhood of
$5,000 per customer, to be paid
*i'


over the life of the bond issue.
He also pointed out the entire
city was served by septic tanks,
all of which face the need of being
replaced in just a few years.
'When you have to replace your
present septic tank, you're not
going to be allowed by the Health
Department to put back the same
type system you presently have.
You are going to be forced to put

Pendarvis NameSd.

As City Clerk

Pauline Pendarvis, Acting City Clerk of Port St. Joe, was named
as the official clerk at Tuesday evening's City Commission meeting.
Mrs. Pendarvis had assumed the responsibilities of Clerk following
the resignation of former City Clerk Jim Maloy in May of this year.
A 13 year employee of the City, Mrs. Pendarvis will officially
assume duties as City Clerk on October 1. The Commission unan-
imously approved her hiring based on Mayor Pate's recommenda-
tion.
During that time she has worked in various capacities, serving
as bookkeeper, administrative secretary and administrative assis-
tant before assuming her duties as acting city clerk.


City Investigates, Upgrades Storm Water Collection Map

Area in North Port St. Joe and in Business District of City Found in Worst Condition


The City Commission unani-
mously adopted a $12,112,654
budget for the 1995-96 fiscal year
Tuesday night at its regular meet-
ing. A final decision was made on
the proposed 1.72 percent tax
increase, based on a 5.2408 mill-
age rate, following a public hear-
ing held at 7:30 p.m.
Only one local resident ques-
tioned the board concerning bud-
get issues. She asked for an
explanation of the city's policy
when making decisions to pur-
chase new police cars and what
portion of 'the budget financed
their purchase.


Rabies

Vaccination

Clinic Sat.
The Gulf County Public
Health Unit, in conjunction with
Dr. Tim Nelson, DVM, will hold a
rabies vaccination clinic this
Saturday, September 23, from
8:00 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.
The clinic will be held at the Gulf
County Public Health Depart-
ment, 402 Fourth Street, Port St.
Joe. The cost of the vaccination
will be $4.00.
All pet owners who have
pets which haven't been inocu-
lated against the rabies virus are
urged to take advantage of this
opportunity to protect their pets
from the disease. "--


City Mayor Frank Pate
explained such purchases wbre
included in the Police Depart-
ment's budget, but the past two
patrol cars bought were pur-
chased through special grant
money' awarded to the police
department.
STORMWATER PLAN
Phillip Jones, Preble & Rish,
Inc., presented the board mem-
bers with copies of the proposed
stormwater management plan for
them to evaluate prior to its adop-


tion.
Jones told the commissioners
the document was a long range
plan designed to be implemented
over the next 15-20 years to cor-
rect major stormwater drainage
problems throughout the city.
Preble & Rish, Inc. had been
asked by the board to develop a
new stormwater plan for the city
to spell out problem areas ih the
city and update the old plan
which was drawn up in 1979.
The plan pinpoints a few


areas in North Port St. Joe and
the downtown business district of
the city as having the worst
stormwater drainage problem in
the city. It also spells out solu-
tions to correct the problems and
estimates costs for the projects.
The plan is also bringing the
city's stormwater drainage sys-
tem's maps into the computer
age. The stormwater master plan
and all existing stormwater
drainage systems in the city have
been digitized and computerized,


mapping out all 27 flood basins
within the city.
The long term goal of Public
Works Superintendent Frank
Healy is to have all of the city's
-stormwater drainage, sewer,
water, streets, and utilities incor-
porated into the computer map-
ping system, providing an accu-
rate map of the city's under-
ground for future planning and

It Floats

The sailboat, built in
the backyard of Dr. Rudy
Sechez, drew considerable
curiosity and interest at
the transport and launch-
ing of the craft Friday
morning.
Starting around 8:30
a.m., it was loaded on a
lowboy trailer and trans-
ported to Apalachicola,
where it was placed in the
water at Deep Water Mari-
na, with no problems and
no delays.
Sechez finally saw that
his first effort at building a
sailboat was successful and
the craft would float, up-
right, at 2:30 p.m., when it
was finally floated.

Wilder

Says He6'1


Step

Down

At the End of His
Current Term
Walter Wilder made his first
public announcement that he
would not be a candidate for re-
election as Gulf County's Super-
intendent of Education in next
year's election, Tuesday, in an ad-
dress to the Kiwanis Club.
The 20-year veteran as the
head of county schools, said he
was stepping down at the end of
his present term, and painted a
gloomy picture of the future of ed-
ucation. His pessimism wasn't
based on the trends in education,
but on. the trend of the American
family and its effect on the stu-
dents.
Wilder -shot statistical holes
in .the thin skin of several com-
mon suppositions, by de-bunking
the notion that Japanese and
German [the two nations we are
most frequently compared with]
schools are better funded or turn
out higher quality students than
American schools.
He cited the fact that the
United States put more of their
GNP into schools than other na-
tions and America's students at-
tend college at a greater rate and
have less percentage of drop-outs
than the foreign schools. "In Gulf
County alone, we have over 79%
of last year's students attending
some school of higher learning
and have a drop-out rate of less
than 1.4%,"
'"We live in a virtual oasis
here," Wilder said. "By contrast,
nationally, fully one half of all
marriages today end in divorce,
violent crimes are common, un-
wed mothers are so common that
teen-age single mothers are on
the rise by nearly 500%, with sec-
ond births to the same single
teen-age mothers up by nearly
400%. Welfare, TV, and health
have become the main enemies of
a good learning situation among
children. With statistics such as
these, how do you expect youths
to have any stability in their lives
and be able to concentrate on
items having an affect on their fu-
ture, such as education?"

An Institution -


WE DON'T KNOW whether its clean living or what, but nev-
ertheless "Mr. Cecil" Costin has done a lot of it for a long time,
now, and doesn't show many signs of slowing up for a while.
He still climbs ladders, drives his own cars, walks down to
The Star from his hardware store to pick up an item or items he
needs. He still comes to work most days he is in town, if he isn't'
running around to Birmingham, Atlanta, or Alaska. You can't
keep him still!
"Mr. Cecil" has been an institution in Port St. Joe for longer
than even he would like to remember, we suspect. He has been a
successful business man for many, many years; a good family
man; a philanthropist; a staunch member of the First Baptist
Church and a solid citizen.
THERE WAS ONCE A JOKE about town which involved "Mr.
Cecil", the late Joe Sharit and another late citizen and "institu-
tion" in former dafs of Port St. Joe, one black gentleman known
locally as "Tallahassee".
It seems a stranger drove into town and the first man he saw
was 'Tallahassee". The stranger stopped his car and questioned
'Tallahassee".
"Say, there, my good man," he said. "Can you tell me where
the Church of Christ is located?"
'Tallahassee" leaned on his bicycle and pushed his old felt
hat back on his head and scratched his forehead, causing he
thought process to spin faster, and replied:
'"Well suh," he replied, "Mr. Joe Sharit's Church is down this-
a-way and Mr. Cecil Costin's church is down that-a-way. but
I don't think Mr. Christ has a church in this town!"
"Mr. Cecil" is identified by his strong affiliation with his First
Baptist Church, even today.
THERE HAVE BEEN many stories about the elder men of
this city who have been such shakers and movers in things of
commerce and in civic endeavors, it is almost impossible to
name them all. Many of them were here in the early building
days of Port St. Joe. "Mr. Cecil" is one of these men who have
been here since before the first paved road, or the first electric
light, or the first telephone ...
We wish him a belated happy 98th birthday and want to
wrangle an invitation to his 100th birthday party, at least. After
that, we'll just play it by ear!



Behave Yourself

THE PEOPLE OF .WEWAHITCHKA, or at least the football
fans of Wewahitchka, had an unfortunate experience last week'
in Havana. It was sad and uncalled for and was the kind of thing
which causes hard feelings between the citizens of one commu-
nity for another. It leaves bad taste in the mouths of the ones in-
volved and causes the residents of the offending community
much heart-ache, also, since the majority of a community sel-
dom, if ever, condones such experiences as were experienced by
their Wewahitchka visitors recently.
There were acts of violence, vandalism and .down-right mean-
ness performed against some of the adults and youths of the
Gulf County city which were uncalled for.
WE KNOW, ON AT least one occasion on which we, person-
ally, attended a high school football game in Havana, we were
made to feel uneasy until we could leave the premises and be
safely on our way home.
That isn't a good situation, for either the good people of Ha-
vana or the victims of groups of raucous, teen-agers who,
through their actions, make visiting teams or fans feel they are
in unsafe surroundings. It doesn't make for good sportsmanship
or encourage visitors to come back again, whether to a sporting
event or for some other reason.
WE TRUST THE school personnel, the law enforcement peo-
ple, the parents, the officials of Gadsden County and the Florida
High School Athletic Association, will all combine their efforts to
correct these activities before they get out of hand to the point
where serious injury or even death is the penalty paid by some-
one who is merely out for an evening of entertainment.
There is too much meanness in this world already, without
allowing a potentially explosive situation to reach the flash
point.
If it continues, Havana may one day find that no one wants
to come to their fair city to participate in any kind of sporting ac-
tivity, and that would be a sad situation beyond words.


Hunker Down with Kes


Just Like Me!


I'm not so sure I understand
all the fuss over Cal Ripken, Jr.
playing in 2,131 consecutive
baseball games. Listen, I'd played
in over two thousand straight
games before my twelfth birthday!
It wasn't nothing for us to "get in"
seven, eight-ten ball games a
day. To this day I think we could
'a squeezed in one more game
each evening, but some of the
guys voted in a rule that we
couldn't start a game after it got
so dark that you couldn't stand
at home plate and see the left
fielder.
If it rained, we grabbed a cork
and a sawed-off broom handle
and moved into the barn. If we hit
it into Bessie's stall it was a
ground rule double. Anything
over the chalked white line,' half
way up the wall above the loft,
was a home run. And you had to
make one heck of a nimble turn


at third base or you'd find your-
self nailed to the tack room door.
Sunday was our only day
with a limited schedule Broth-
er Hatcher was the slowest eater
and he would reach for one more
piece of chicken and one more
piece and one more . We'
played speed 'up rules on Sun-
days to get in several games be-
fore night church.
Take a day off or miss a
game? NEVER ENTERED OUR
MINDS!
'Course, we didn't worry
about streaks and records-I
don't think we counted 'em much
back in those days, we just
played 'em.
I saw my first ever big league
game as a seven year old in 1954.
Old Sportsman Park in St. Louis
had grass so .green it would make
your eyes hurt just to look at it. .
. the scoreboard was taller
than any building in our little

Folks, I don't know exactly in
life when the time comes that
your dreams, hopes and aspira-
tions begin to mix with reality. I
love Willie Mays. He could "go get
'em" like no one I'd ever seen. I
watched him closely. Listen, he
could trot backwards faster that I
could ever think about running..
. Rapid Robert Feller could
throw a ripe strawberry through a
battleship-I couldn't hit Buddy
Wiggleton. There's a world of dif-
ference between hitting 'an old
cork up over a white line in a
musty barn on a rainy day-and
cracking big league fast balls over
fluorescent clocks above immacu-
lately kept green walls ..... .
I wasn't going to hit 'em
where Mickey Mantle hit 'em. I
wasn't going head to head with
Sandy Koufax in the seventh
game of the World Series. Ordi-
nary, everyday, run of the mill big
leaguers could play circles
around me .... That reality
thing again.

Driven By A Relentless, Compelling Urge To Improve!


BACK IN ASOFEDITA days,
when Walter Wilder became prin-
cipal of Port St. Joe High School,
he designed and had us print a
letterhead, for the school, which
contained a slogan at the bottom
of the sheet which said, in effect,
"Driven by a relentless, compel-
ling urge to improve".
That seemed like a good slo-
gan for a school and through the
years I have remembered that lit-
tle motto, and applied it to other
avenues of my life; or at -least I
have made an attempt at its ap-
plication to certain portions of my
undertakings, and failed due to
my own inabilities, not for lack of
driven ambition for accomplish-
ment. '
Take shooting at doves, for
instance. Come Saturday, the op-
portunity will present itself to im-
prove some more in my being a
dead shot at those gray bullets on
the wing. No matter how hard I
try, the results will probably be


the same. Nadal
Plenty of shells expended
through the barrel of my old
Browning "Sweet 16" with noth-
ing to show for it but the expendi-
ture of 334 again and
again ... and again; the law only
allows three shells in a gun, you
know.

AT THE BEGINNING of every
season, for the past several years,
John Fadio has offered me a per-
sonal invitation to join him and
the other shooters out at the Gun
Range, to shoot traps. "It'll tune
up your old eye for the dove sea-
son!" he exuberates.


John, nothing will tune up
my old eye or eyes. They're geneti-
cally off target, I think.
But, would you believe I can
hit "clay" pigeons when they are
released from a mechanical trap,
but I still can't hit "feathered" pi-
geons when they come whistling
across a corn, peanut or soybean
field?
What do you suppose causes
that?
Maybe it's something psycho-
logical. Maybe I should take a trip
or two across the street for a
brace of sessions with Ned Ailes
about this most peculiar of hang-
ups. Then again, I know I would


solve the problem and conserve
that 33 a try if I were just to quit
kidding myself by continuing to
go dove hunting with the expecta-
tions of getting a mess of the suc-
culent birds to eat.
Let's face it! I'm just bird
watching, not bird hunting!
There is a difference, you
know.

THEN, THERE IS the matter
of dealing with the "Compelling
urge" to get up in the morning; an.
affliction with which I am not af-
flicted.
It takes both Frenchie and
"Smudgie" to get me out of the
bed each morning by 7:00 a.m.
Frenchie will shake me awake to
that delicious euphoria of lying
about half awake/asleep when
you can do some serious lolling in
a soft, warm bed, performing a re-
laxing stretch or two, with the
whole bed to yourself.
Then comes "Smudgie"I She


jumps up in the bed and begins
to wriggle and squirm at top
speed; chasing her tail in high-
speed circles in the bed and nip-
ping at my hands, feet, neck and
anything else that moves. Her fa-
vorite ploy at awakening me to
the point of getting up, is to lick
me under my arms. Now, that'll
get anyone awake!
Little old "Smudgie" isn't of
much use for anything else, ex-
cept petting, but she puts all her
four pounds into it when she has
the task of getting me out of bed
in the morning. I guess you could
say she follows a paraphrased
version of Walter's motto: "Com-
pelled by a relentless urge to suc-
ceed" in the task of getting my
feet on the floor.

I DON'T KNOW why I
couldn't be like Billy Joe Rish.
But then, is he happy with his af-
fliction?
I was talking-with him the
other day and he was telling me,


"My eyes pop open at 5:30 every
morning and I have a 'relentless,
compelling urge' to get up and get
going!"
That may be an ambitious
undertaking and if I were to
achieve it, I might wind up owing
as many banks as Billy Joe does
-according to his own often-
pronounced claim-and I can't
move as fast as he can, in order,
to stay one step ahead of them.
I hate to admit it, but I'm
more of the Jimmy Costin make-
up. I.don't hurry in anything I do.'
I just make every move count,
ain't that right, JiTmy?
I've gone through a lot of
problems during the past year,
but one attribute still sticks with
me, intact. It wasn't in the least
damaged by my other health
problems-a situation of which I
can" be proud.
I can still go to bed at night,
"turn off' and go to sleep until
Frenchie and "Smudgie" go into
action the next morning.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, SEPT. 21, 1995


Congressman Pete Peterson Issues


Statement Concerning Decision


I have decided not to seek a
fourth term as the Representative
of the Second Congressional Dis-
trict of Florida. When I ran for
election in 1990, I. strongly sup-
ported term limits and I stated
then that I never intended to be a
career politician.
I have considered my decision
'very carefully and concluded that
* now would be the best time to an-
nounce my intention not to run,
so that other candidates may en-


ter the race.
I have found that it is very dif-
ficult to function as a moderate in
Congress today. Throughout my
tenure, I have worked as a bridge-
builder to find bipartisan solu-
tions to our nation's problems.
Unfortunately, the current politi-
cal climate on Capitol Hill and
throughout the nation has ren-
dered this approach ineffective.
It continues to be a great hon-
or to serve the constituents of the


second congressional district. I
will complete this term in office
with the same enthusiasm, com-
mitment and integrity as I have in
the past.

Neighborhood Pharmacies Placed
At Risk By Government Dictation


Dear Mr. Ramsey,
In survey after survey, consu-
mers have repeatedly stated that
they want to have the right to pa-
tronize the neighborhood phar-
macy of their choice.
However, for several years
now and with increasing regulari-
ty, many health insurance com-
panies have lieen taking that
choice away from millions and
millions of consumers. The com-
panies often force consumers to
abandon the local pharmacy that
has served them well for years.
Patients are told either to patron-
ize another pharmacy or to obtain
drugs from unregulated mail or-
der companies located hundreds
of miles away.

that must be dealt with within
the next five years," Wilder said.

On the "up" side of his ad-

of pride In his voice of the accom-
plishments of the schools over
the past few years. With a nation-
wide sense of belligerency toward
public school operations, Wilder
pointed to the fact that this past
year, Port St. Joe High School
had the largest number [and per-
centage] of high honor and honor
graduates in the school's history.
'We had the largest number of
students in all grades making all

day and goes to work-every
day. That's why the truck driver
in Hibbing, Minnesota, paused
for an extra cup of coffee and
took in the televised celebration a
couple of weeks ago. It's why the
miner's pack in Johnson County,
Kentucky, wasn't quite so heavy
the morning after. It's why a
wheat farmer outside of Russell
Springs, Kansas, painted 2,131
on his silo. Maybe we can't hit
755 home runs or win 511 big
league games, but we can, and
do, get up each day and give life
the very best that we have.
Thanks, Cal, for being one of
us.
I thought the best interview
was after game number 2,114.
Some news guy was asking him
how it felt to be chasing Lou Geh-

just play 'em."

INSURANCE I


lowed to continue with their local
pharmacy, many insurers are dic-
tating which drugs the pharmacy
may use to fill, a prescription-
influenced primarily by whIch
supplier gave the insurer the best
deal, rather than by what is best
for the patient.
The upshot of these and oth-
er ill-advised practices of many
insurance companies is many
consumers suffer the ultimate
elimination of choice; their local
pharmacy goes out of business.
Independent pharmacies are eve-
ry bit as competitive as mail order
companies or the pharmacies be-
ing designated by the insurers. (A
1995 study by Drug Store News,
for example, showed the average
price of a prescription is lower at
independent pharmacies than at
chain drugstores.) Yet we are not
being allowed to compete.
In just the past year, approxi-
mately four million people have
lost their independent pharmacy
because it was forced to close its
doors permanently. Each week,
about 80,000 more consumers
are losing their pharmacy.
A. day of national protest-
"High Noon for Your Local Phar-
macy"--is being staged on Sep-
tember 20 to illustrate to consu-
mers how the ill-conceived
policies of health insurers are ad-
versely affecting them. Quality
pharmacist care is now being lost
by millions of consumers in
helghbdrhoods large 'and "small
across America.
If Insurers are allowed to con-
tinue such unfair policies, the
number of independent pharma-
cies closing their doors is sure to
increase-with the ultimate losers
being those whom we have served
for so many years.I
The time has come for consu-
mers to stand up and say no. No
longer can we allow the health
and welfare of millions of Ameri-
cans to be jeopardized by the un-
fair practices of many in the
health insurance industry.
Sincerely,
Rex Buzzett, RPH

TALK A LITTLE TRASH
Mayor Pate and Commis-

they were still getting a few com-
plaints regarding timely pickup of
trash from the city's rights-of-
way.
Public Works Superintendent
Healy pointed out the city was
currently picking up around 12
dump truck loads per day, and to
do any more might require
putting on another crew.
Mayor Pate recommended to
Healy that he get bid specifica-
tions together for a new knuckle
boom loader, which might provide
some relief to the situation.

Like a good neighbor
State Farm is there.


A 242-pound pumpkin is a
state record for Florida but when
it comes right down to it, is it big
enough for Cinderella's coach?
According to University of
Florida vegetable crops specialist
Jim Stephens, probably not. After
yall, that pumpkin, grown in 1990
by Suwannee County gardener
McDonald Graham, was "only"
about three feet tall and five feet
wide.
Stephens, the keeper of the
list of record-size vegetables in
Florida, says the fairy tale about
Cinderella using a pumpkin for
transportation definitely could
have been true, though.
"The world record is a tlo0u-
sand pounds and Cinderella
could definitely get in one of
those." Stephens said. "It takes a
flatbed truck to cart one of those
around and people pay money to
see them."
Stephens has been keeping
Florida vegetable records since
1989 and has seen enough God-
zilla-sized greens to scare any
veggle-phobic kid into being
grateful for those petite peas on
his dinner plate.
Nine new records have been
set during the past year and the
only real surprise is that only one
was set by Suwannee County's
Graham. Graham has grown 10
of Florida's record size vegetables,
including the 242-pound pump-
kin, and his latest, a 55-pound
gourd.
A 9 1/2-inch lima bean
grown in St. Lucie County is
among the records of the last**
year. And Jack might have been
willing to trade in his beanstalk
for the okra stalk grownin Flagler '
County. It reached a towering19
feet, 10 1/2 inches.
A Nassau County grower set
two records with a 3-pound-Il-
ounce scallop squash and an 11-
pound- 11-ounce zucchini.


Records also were set for cas-
sava, cucuzzi gourd, hubbard
squash and summer squash.
Stephens said he decided to
start keeping the list in 1989.
"I had been a vegetable crops
specialist with the extension for
i'over 30 years and not only did I
hear about people's problems but
I also heard about their success-
es," Stephens said. "Over the
years people would call up want-
ing to know if something was a
state or even a world record."
The oldest record still stand-
"ritgdate' back-Cto 19777f6r'la"25-"'
pound winter radish grown In"
Hillsborough County.., Stepihens
said that record was documented
by the Guinness Book of World
Records so he decided to accept it
forhis omclal list.
Most of the record-size vege-
tables are grown by home garden-
ers rather that farmers. Many of
the gardeners set out to grow a
record-setting vegetable and will
pay $5 to $10 per seed If it comes
from a champion vegetable.
Some try unusual growing
methods, like playing music for
the vegetable or planting by a
particular moon phase. Some
even claim to have a "secret" iii-
gredient, but Stephens says that
often turns out simply to be cow;
manure. Almost all the victor veg-.
etables are grown organically.
Suwarinee County extension
assistant Jimmy Shepard, who
has seen the fruits-or vegeta-
bles-of Graham's labor in local
farm supply stores, says Graham,
is proud of his handiwork and
that even the normal veggies he
grows are bigger that average.
Bragging rights, and a certifi-
cate, are all a gardener gets for

having a champion vegetable,,
Stephens said. But that seems to
be enough. With a million vegeta-
ble gardeners toiling away in Flor-
ida, extension agents are in de-
Smand to verify claims.
As for the champion vegeta-
bles, fame is fleeting. For many,
gargantuan growth makes them
grotesque and they begin to rot
arontmd the edges, most become
Compost. In some rare cases, size
equates to succulence, though.
"I've never run into a situa-
tion where a tomato got too big to
be good eating," Stephens said.

U. of F. Parenting Therapy Shows Promise In


Curbing Behavior Problems in Preschoolers


By Diane Martin
A parenting method that em-
phasizes relationship building
skills may be effective in curbing
problem behavior in preschool
children, suggest preliminary re-
sults of a University of Florida
study.
I Dr. Sheila Eyberg, professor
of clinical and health psychology
in UF's College of Health Related
Professions, found the therapy
she'developed to significantly de-
.crease the number of problem
outbursts in three to five year


olds with oppositional defiant be-
havior. Children classified with
this behavior have frequent epi-
sodes of hitting, yelling and sass-
ing back.
The study published in the
latest edition of the national Jour-
nal Psychopharmacology Bulletin,
distributed in June.
'"Developmental psychologists
recently determined that up until
seven years of age, problem be-
havior is very changeable," Ey-
berg said. "Unfortunately, few
studies have been done with chil-

dren at this age because of the
prevailing mentality that children
will simply grow out of this
phase. It is well documented that
problem children often become
problem adults, with behavior es-
calating into vandalism, robbery
and other crimes."
Eyberg said after completing
her therapy, which places equal
emphasis on communication and
discipline, children with opposi-
tional defiant behavior had de-
creased their number of out-
bursts in a five-minute period by
almost 50 percent.
'After therapy., these children
went from way outside the nor-
m*l range of child behavior to
well within the limits of normal
behavior," Eyberg said.
Using a $750,000 grant from".
the National Institute of Mental
Health, Eyberg tested her therapy
with 70 families whose children.
exhibited disruptive behavior.
Children in the study decreased
their number of outbursts, on av-
erage, from more than five or six"
within a five-minute period to no
more.than two.
Stephen Boggs, associate pro-
fessor of clinical and health psy-
chology and co-principal investi-I
gator of the study, said the
therapy has the potential to
change problem behavior through'
its emphasis on positive family
interactions.'
'We teach families the impor-
tance of communicating with
each other." Boggs said. Parents
in this study are amazed at the
dramatic impact a few positive
words can have on a child."
Evberg explains that the ther-
apy consists of an average of 13


one-hour sessions and combines
relationship building techniques
with discipline. Parents first are
instructed in how to listen and
praise their children while they
play with them in a clinical set-
ting.
After a positive relationship is
built, discipline is introduced in
which parents establish rules and
give commands. If a command is
not obeyed, the child is given a
three-minute time-out during
which the child must remain si-
lent for at least the last five sec-
onds of the time-out. .
'The goal is to get parents out
of a behavioral trap." Eyberg said.
'Too many times, when a child
acts up or is difficult, a parent re-
sponds by yelling, thereby giving
their child attention for bad be-
havior. We teach parents to re-
ward good behavior and ignore
the bad."
Boggs said the research team
will determine whether the thera-
py can be generally applied to
areas outside of ;the home and
whether successful results can be
maintained over a longer length
of time. Preliminary studies indi-
cate the research will yield posi-
tive results, Boggs said.
Eyberg said warning signs
that a child may have a behavior-
al problem include excessive mis-
behavior in day care or school:
other parents expressing concern
over the way the child is acting
and when parents find them-
selves not liking their child.
"Hopefully. this therapy will
teach parents how to like their
children again and to regain con-
- fidence in themselves as parents.,"
Eyberg said.

pendent. the family policy will
cover the newborn for the first 18
months only.
Children-The Child Health
Assurance Act or "Well-Child Act"
requires family health insurance

Gators Nip Bulldogs 28-27


Three second half touch-
downs erased a 13-7 half time
deficit as the Wewahitchka Gators
nipped Greensboro's Bulldogs 28-
27 in their first district game of
the young season.
Quarterback Matt Kearce was
on one end or the other of all four
Gator touchdowns, throwing
three scoring passes and scoring
from one yard out on a quarter-
back'keeper to put the game away
in the fourth quarter.
Greensboro took the early
lead in the contest, scoring from
five yards out with :19 remaining
in the first period.
Wewahitchka took the ensu-
ing kickoff and marched 63 yards
in 11 plays to knot the score at 7-
all. Kearce connected with
Andrew Williams on a five yard
fade pass to the corner of the end
,zone with 7:28 left in the second
quarter for the score. David
Hysmith's extra point kick was
good.
Third down catches good for
22 yards and 11 yards by
Williams and Hysmith kept the
scoring drive alive for the Gators.
The Bulldogs wasted little
time answering Wewahitchka,
scoring on a 42 yard trap play by
running back Chris Gilcrease, but
Justin Jackson blocked what:
turned out to be a big extra point
try. Greensboro carried a 13-7
lead to the locker room at half
time. ,
The Gatorsistarted the second


half finding themselves on their
own half yard line following a bad
bounce on the kickoff, downed at
the Gator one yard line, and an
illegal procedure penalty moving
the ball back half the distance to
the goal line.
Wewahitchka, with their back
to the wall, rose to the challenge
driving 99 1/2 yards, using 8:10
of the third quarter and 16 plays
to take the lead for good 14-13.
Kearce found tight end Amp Hill
in the end zone for a 12 yard
touchdown strike. Hysmith's
extra point was good.
Things got wild in the fourth
period with the two teams scoring
28 points between them, but the
Gators hung on to their lead.
Tranum McLemore scored on a 31
yard touchdown pass from
Kearce. Ike Mincy ran for the two
point: conversion to put Wewa-
hitchka up 22-13.
Greensboro scored on a 42
yard run off a fake punt attempt,
but trailed by three points, 22-19,
after their try for a two point con-
version failed.
Kearce scored on a one yard
run with 3:35 remaining in the
game, capping a 59 yard scoring
drive. The, point after attempt was
blocked by Greensboro.
Greensboro pulled to within
one point late in the fourth peri-
od, but the Gators held on for the
district win, improving their
record to 2-1.

When gum disease begins
to destroy the bone that sur-
rounds and supports the teeth,
it is known as PERIODONTAL
DISEASE, or PERIODONTI-
TIS. This is a serious condi-
tion. Gradually, or not so grad-
ually, you are beginning to lose
bone, and 'this process is irre-
versible! Lost bone will not re-
generate itself. Worse yet,
bone loss causes no pain until*
very late in the disease. This
means that you could lose
more than half your bone and
not know it.
Fortunately, while this pro-
cess is not reversible, it can be
stopped by effective and timely
treatment. That is why it's so

St. Joe Edges Wakulla War Eagles 12-7

Face Off With Bay High Tornadoes On Friday Night


Barry Adkison was the differ-
ence in the 12-7 Port St. Joe vic-
tory against the Wakulla War
Eagles Friday night. Adkison
kicked two field goals, averaged
49.5 yards on punts, put his kick-
offs in the end zone, and ran two
fake punts for 36 yards, one
resulting in a first down and a
later score.
Port St. Joe scored their first
points early in the second quarter
on Adkison's 43-yard field goal.
The Sharks scored later in the


second quarter on Brian Jenkins'
five yard touchdown run. The two
point conversion run failed,
putting St. Joe up 9-0 at halftime.
Jenkins rushed the ball I I times
for 55 yards, caught two passes
for eight yards, and ran two kick-
offs back for 36 yards on the
evening.
Port St Joe's defense, which
has been their -strength thus far
this year, held their opponent to
only seven points, and came up
with big play after big play when
they needed it. The defensive unit
made two interceptions, one fum-
ble recovery, six pass breakups,
four tackles for loss, and two
quarterback sacks.
Brian Jenkins scored from
the two yard line in the third
quarter, but was called back on a
penalty, and the Sharks had to
settle for a 24 yard field goal,
putting them up 12-0. Wakulla
scored with eight minutes
remaining in the game to make
the score 12-7.
Port St. Joe later had control
of the game with 40 seconds left
and a first-and-10 on their own
40 yard line when they fumbled "
the ball and a Wakulla player
returned the ball to the 30 yard
line. Wakulla, which looked to be
out of the game, now had a'
chance to win the game with 36
seconds left on the clock and the
ball on St. Joe's 30 yard line.
Wakulla went for the end zone ;
twice before Chad Quinn inter-
cepted a pass and ran it back to
midfield to end the game.

Speaking form his Quincy of-
fice, Saturday, September 16,
Senator Pat Thomas confirmed his
plans to run for re-election to the
Florida Senate, District 3.
Thomas, D-Quincy, a senior
member of the Florida Senate,
identified several important issues
which helped him make the deci-
sion to run again. He noted his
continued commitment to bring-
ing economic development oppor-
tunities to North Florida; his grow-
ing concern about increased
financial pressure on our state's
education system as a result of
competing criminal justice needs
and the critical, issue of facing the
anticipated shortfall of federal dol-
lars for state programs as points
to be considered.
Senator Thomas has long
been recognized as a leader in the
fight against crime. He has led the
highly successful effort to reform
the state juvenile justice system
and has been a driving force in di-
recting thousands of new prison
jobs to the eleven counties of Sen-
ate District 3.
"I am happy that I have been
able to bring new, clean industry
jobs to the district by bringing
more of the state's prisons to
North Florida. However, I am ex-
tremely concerned about the effect
of spending billions of state dol-
lars on continued prison expan-
sion on: the already underfunded
education system. This issue
must be addressed quickly and re-
sponsibly in order to avert crisis
in our schools. My top priority will
be to see that the children of this
state receive the best possible ed-
ucation," said Thomas.
I probably represent the poor-
est area per capital in Florida,"
said the Senator. "This district is
harder hit by deductions in federal
and state funding than any other
place in the state. We must have
strong leaders from North Florida
who understand the complexities
of the budget process and can
protect the interests of our small
counties."
Thomas says the greatest
challenge facing Senate District 3
will be the continued drive to
bring new economic development
to areas hit hard by the Net Ban
and federal cutbacks in agricultu-
ral programs. Thomas has been

Dear Counselor,
I have a question. I have rea-

Should I stop drinking -alcohol?

sometimes have a mixed drink if
we go to a restaurant. What
should I do?
Signed, Possibly Pregnant
Dear Possibly Pregnant,
If you are having unprotected
sex (your partner is not using a
condom), the most prudent
course of action is to behave like
you are pregnant. Run, don't
walk, to a gynecologist to rule out
pregnancy. Stop drinking alcohol
until you havj been assured by
your doctor that you are not preg-
nant. Alcohol consumption during
pregnancy may result in structur-
al abnormalities, growth .retarda-


tion, compromised central ner-
vous system functioning, atten-
tion difficulties, memory problems
and lowered I.Q. in the newborn.
If you need support or assessment
regarding an alcohol-related prob-
lem, please contact your local
community mental health center
or substance abuse treatment

In a first-of-the-kind program
the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission has a "Know Your
Wildlife Management Area" day
set for September 23rd at the Ap-
alachee W.M.A., north of Sneads.
Division of Wildlife biologist
Paul Hamelin oversees the 7,952-
acre area and will be on hand to
explain the varied uses of the
area, management activities and
harvest trends of game animals,
efforts geared toward migratory
species, use by non-game species
and other information.
"There may be individuals in
the area or from farther away
that would like to find out more
about Apalachee and this would
be the perfect opportunity," said,
Hamelin.- "For instance, some
people are still unfamiliar with
Zones B and C, which border
Lake Seminole and the Chatta-
hoochee River, and good ways to
access these areas."
Following a short presenta-
tion that will begin at 10:00 a.m.
(CST), Hamelin said the public
will be free to look over the area


at their leisure. He said some
may want to hunt doves on the
area's agricultural fields when
hunting is allowed beginning at
noon.
He said the informal presen-
.tation will be at the check station
on State Road. 271, five miles
north of Sneads.

Timing, Chemical Selection,


Important in Fighting Disease

When You Notice the First Signs, Get Out the Old
Spray Gun and Continue Dosages at Regular Intervals


Using the right amount of
fungicide is essential for effective
plant disease control. But, that's
only half the battle You must
also know when to apply the se-
lected material. Unfortunately,
-garden hobbyists may find timing
to be as confusing as chemical
selection. Today I'll try to explain
the importance of timing in the
use of fungicides.
Fungicides work by prevent-
ing plant diseases. They serve as.
shields against infection-not
Scores. These chemicals can't
save plants that are already in-
fected. They can. only limit the
spread of a disease to healthy
plants. So, it's very important to
begin a fungicidal spray program
at the first signs of attack, or bet-
ter yet, even before you notice
any symptoms at all. This article'
will shed some light on proper
niming- of fungkide.- application:
My information was provided by
Extension Plant Pathologist, Dr.
Tom Kucharek, with IFAS of the
University of Florida.
When you notice the first
signs of fungus disease, usually
leaf spots or blight, you can be
fairly sure that the affected plants
have been infected for at least
three days, and perhaps as long
as two weeks. Symptoms of bac-
terial leaf spots and downy mil-
dews usually appear three to 10
days after infection. Other leaf
diseases have Incubation periods
of from seven to 10 days. Greasy
,spots on citrus can take several
months to show up.
Generally, the longer the.in-
cubation period, the slower'a dis-
ease spreads and the more easily
it can_ be. controlled. ,Obviously,
then, diseases that have short in-
,cubation periods; such as bacteri-
'al blights and downy mildews, are
the most difficult to control.
* Other variables, such as'
weather conditions; cultural con-

intervals suggested on the prod-
uct label.
If disease symptoms that
have appeared seem to get worse
after you've sprayed, don't get
discouraged. Remember that fun-
gicides can only prevent-not
cure-an infection. So, a disease
may continue to produce symp-
toms for some time after spray-
ing. However, you should notice a
slowdown in symptom develop-
ment within about 10 days follow-
ing application of a fungicide.
As we've said, you should be-
gin control measures at the first
sign of infection. However, if you
don't begin spraying until a dis-
ease has spread quite' a bit, you:
should use the most effective ma-
terial you can find and apply it at
the highest rate allowed on the
product' label. Also, shorten the
interval between sprays as much
as the label recommends,' and

water the plants only when nec-
essary.

trol, fungicide toxicity, and spray
application techniques, also will
have some effect on your attempt
to control a disease. But, the one
factor that will have the most in-
fluence is the time at which you
begin your spray program. As
we've said, the earlier you begln,
the more successful you will be.
So, you should always in-
spect your plants carefully' and
frequently, and begin spraying at
the first sign of infection. It may
seem that .extensive disease
symptoms develop overnight.
However, a few spots always ap-
pear on the leaves before a sud-
den explosion of symptoms. And,
you should remain alert for, these
early warnings. If you know from
past experience that a disease
problem is likely to develop, you
should begin a spray program be-
fore you see any symptoms at all.
Then, continue spraying at the

State Treasurer and Insu-
rance Commissioner Bill Nelson
is asking consumerss 'who think
they may'have been victims of a
life insurance sales scheme called
"churning" to contact the Depart-
ment of Insurance so it can inves-
tigate.
Churning is a sales tactic al-
legedly employed by some life in-
surance agents to improperly re-
place existing life insurance with
a new product to be paid for from
the cash value of the old policy,
in essence, gutting the savings of
the ,old policy without the policy-
holder's knowledge.
"Churning appears to be a
significant problem not only in


by some $600,000.
Another improvement is in
the parks and playgrounds de-
partment, which is scheduled to
see many improvements if every-
thing works out as it should. For
instance, the City has long want-
ed a marina. It has been one of
very few cities with the Gulf of
' Mexico in its backyard, which has
not had a marina or ready access
to the water. Of course, there has
been the boat launch site at the
west end of Fifth Street, but no
storage, no facilities, or no ma-
rine services waterside.
This will be financed by the


Florida, but also, around the
country," Nelson said. "We al-

of complaints here, and I intend
to make sure no one is cheated
out of their savings."
- To reach consumers, the In-
surance Department has pro-
duced a public service announce-
ment that will air on cable
television stations "statewide
throughout the month of Septem-
ber. The announcement Is part of
an ongoing public education cam-

cifically, its costs to consumers.

crime." Nelson said.

Mrs. Pendarvis said this
year's 'total budget will total
slightly over $12 million, with
more than $7 million of that total
going to operate and pay for the

ily the largest expenditure in the

Let Kids Be the Cooks, and Let the Fun Beqin


The traditional roles of cooking'
al'.'.'a,s have been that adults are'the
+nain cooks, bhile their children are
miniature sidekicks helping'to prepare
the ,food To enable 'ery young chil-
dren to cook independently under the
guidance of an adult "panrner," try
using "Pretend Soup and Other Real'
Recipes" (Tricycle Press), by Mollie
Katzen and Ann Henderson.
This cookbook for preschoolers and
older children offers easy-to-make,
enticing recipes that enable the children
to be the head cooks. There are 38
pages of colorful pictorial recipes for
young chefs to ."read" and follow,'as
well as 38 pages of recipe instructions,
tips and hints for adult helpers.
All the recipes in "Pretend Soup" are
ones that ,can be handled, easily by
.small arms, nothing too stiff for. chil-
dren to stir by themselves. Instead of
being filled with desserts and sweets,
this book is filled with health% foods
that they may have never eaten had
they not prepared it themselves.
Each recipe appears twice, first in
the conventional written format for
adults and-a second time in pictorial,
form for the young cooks. From the
beginning of. time, children have
enjoyed "cooking" mud pies.
Therefore, the:, should enjoy reading
their own instructions to make some-
thing they can actually serve and eat.
Because July is National July
Belongs to Blueberries Month, try
the following recipes to celebrate
this peak month for fresh blueber-
ries, as well as other kinds of fruits
d and berries.

Chiles, Some Cabinet Capitol


Members Still Don't


Get the Meaning

Save-Our-Homes Amendment Meant
to Curb Future Property Taxes
It was apparent at the Florida Cabinet meeting last week that Gov.
s Lawton Chiles, other Democratic members and one Republican don't get
it yet. They approved a rule that allows government to partly negate what
a Save-Our-Homes constitutional amendment passed by the people
intended cap property assessments.
"Dere dey go a'gin," said Uncle Clem Rednek as he skinned a catfish
on Flat Creek in Gadsden County and gave his view of the shenanigans
going on under the big dome in old Taxahassee.
The Save-Our-Homes amendment passed three-years ago capped
yearly increases in homestead property to 3 percent or the increase in
consumer prices, whichever is less.
But the cabinet with Gov. Chiles leading the charge. ruled the
amendment writers intended to, increase assessments up to 3; percent
even in years when property values stay the same. Voting with Chiles in
the 5-2 decision were Democrats Agriculture Commissioner Bob
Crawford, -Attorney Gen. Bob Butterworth, and Insurance Commissioner
Bill Nelson.
k, Republicah" State Comptroller Bob Milligan sided with Chiles.
Republicans Sec. of State Sandra Mortham and Education Commissioner
Frank Brogan opposed him.
The Florida Department of Revenue interpreted the amendment to
mean there would be an increase by no more than 3 percent even when
market values didn't increase. Why? Because lower assessments mean
less money for services and schools.
The big-time news media of the state, as usual, agreed with that
faulty reasoning in spite of the fact that Lee County Appraiser Ken
Wilkinson said increasing the tax in flat market years too was. not the
intent of the amendment and he should know. "I wrote it,",he said. :and
the people didn't vote for an increase in lean years either.
Uncle Clem added:
"Dey's gonna get it when the next elect-shun comes around and it
ain't jest this here rule. Dere's a real revolooshun a'coming."
An indication of it are voters who turned down proposed local sales
:tax increases, for schools and safety in elections, recently in Pinellas,
Hillsborough and Pasco counties.
"By.guml Folks has decided Guvernmint is gona: hafto earn it the
oldfashun way. but the politicos haven't got the message yet," Clem said.


Here's the Capitol News Report
DON'T BET ON GOP GETTING PETERSON'S SEAT
'The Florida Democratic Party took another hit this week when U, S.
Congressman Pete Peterson, D Marianna, announced he would not run
for a fourth term next year, but don't bet your money just yet on a
Republican picking up the seat.
A much more conservative Democrat will replace Peterson perhaps.
Someone like state Sen. Charles Williams, of Live Oak and Tallahassee, a
Republican in Democratic clothing so to speak. Or perhaps one of the
young statesmen-like Florida House members such as Rob Trammel,
Marianna, Randy Mackey, Lake City, F. Allen Boyd. Jr., Monticello, orAl
Lawson, Tallahassee. Good Democrat state Sen. Pat Thomas, Quiricy,'
would have an outside shot at it if his wife would let himn run, but he has
already decided to seek re-election to his old seat in the Senate just to be
sure his district gets its share of the state pie.
Some serious Republican candidates may well be former Secretary of
State Jim Smith, of Tallahassee,, or former state senator and U. S.
'Congressman Bill Grant, of Madison.- Both are former Democrats who
,switched to the Republican Party...and that is the rub,
The North Florida district they will be running in is not only tradi-
tionally Democratic, it is "yeller dog" Democratic, which means many
Democrats would vote for a "yeller dog" before a Republican. Add to that
about a 75 percent Democratic voter registration majority in the district
with about a third of them in government-town Tallahassee.
This old South "fergit, hell" attitude is what helped former Air Force
pilot Peterson in his 1990 victory over Grant who had changed his regis-
tration from a Democrat to a Republican.
Switching parties, especially during a term of office before 'the next
election, wasn't popular in the Big Bend district that stretches across

ROUND-UP

by Jack Harper


Association late last month seemed to upset him considerably.
His staff said he will probably become a small businessman back in
his hometownof Marianna again. Former U. S. Congressman Don Fuqua,
of Altha, the last Democrat who filled the post for more than one term, on
retirement took a lucrative job with one of the companies his committee
had regulated for many years.
CHILES' WIN IS CLINTON'S BLUEPRINT
President Bill Clinton hoping to win Florida the way Gov. Lawton
Chiles did in 1994 is In Jacksonville and Miami this week wooing voters
and raising a lot of campaign money.
The president's re-election committee has decided he needs Florida to
win a second term and they're molding their campaign on Chiles' remark-
able comeback in the polls to defeat Jeb Bush. Clinton lost Florida by
100,000 votes in 1992 and a Democrat has not won in the Florida presi-
dential race since Georgia's Jimmy Carter did it in 1976.
CRUMITIE CONVICTED OF TOURIST MURDER: Eighteen year old
John "Billie Joe" Crumitie was convicted of killing a British tourist at an
Interstate 10 rest stop near Monticello two years ago in.a Pensacola trial
that will be appealed on grounds there was only one black on the Jury.
It was the third trial for Crumitie who turned down an offer of 15
years for a guilty plea on a second-degree murder charge. Insisting he was
home asleep when the shooting occurred. His attorney said the appeal
will be based on the fact that only five blacks were among the 50 poten-
tial jurors considered for the trial and only one of them--a black male-
was on the jury.
Crumitie was found guilty of first degree murder in the fatal shooting
of British tourist Garry Colley, 34, during the botched holdup at the rest
stop. He faces life in prison without possibility of parole for 25 years for
that count alone.
Crumitie'S first trial ,ended in a 11-1 deadlock mistrial in Monticello
when the jury contained five blacks and one of them would not vote for a
conviction. The second trial in Gainesville resulted in a hung jury too
when two of four blacks on that jury held out in a 9-3 deadlock.
WHAT PRISON BED SHORTAGE? A "heck, no- prediction made by
state Sen Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, that Florida's prison building drive
would not bankrupt the state seems to be coming. true with reports from
the Corrections Department this week that there is already a cushion of
nearly 4,000 beds in the system this year.
Thomas said crime rates would fall due to tougher law enforcement
and enough prisons to cut out early releases.'
Thomas, who set the groundwork for the prison building during his
one-year term as Senate president, said adequate prison space and
tougher law enforcement would be a savings to taxpayers ii the long run
because they would convince criminals especially juveniles that crime
really doesn't pay.
The news media at the time disagreed, contending prisons would gob-
ble up most of the state money, denying social programs and schools.
Singletary said the.Legislature could consider cutting back on prison
building temporarily, but stand ready to resume it again if the crime rate
increases. ,
NEW POLLS by Mason-Dixon Political Media Research show Florida
voters are ready to limit social services for illegal immigrants and abolish
state-sponsored affirmative acUon efforts. The survey also found voters
would turn down another attempt to legalize casino gambling if it
appeared on the November 1996 ballot.
MINORITY CHIEF TO RESIGN: Crandall Jones. director of Florida's
minority business development office which is facing an investigation,
says he will resign Oct. 17, one year after he was appointed tq. the post
by Gov. Lawton Chiles. State Comptroller Robert Milligan has asked for a
review of possible conflicts of interest by employees in the commission.


Community Activists

volving health and human service

Rehabilitative Services. The nomi-
nation process is underway to fill
two vacancies ,on the District 2
Health and. Human Services
Board 'that were created by the
recent resignations 'of a Liberty

Health and Human Services

From

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

"Do your very best, day in and
day out" .... Cal Ripken, Jr.


,ver feel stress or depression
is overwhelming you? Many
people do.

The Good news is: THERE IS
HOPE.His name is JESUS
and He can help you over-
come the problems you're
facing and bring peace and
happiness back into your life.'

If you've tried everything, and
have found no answer, we
simply ask: "ISN'T IT TIME
FOR JESUS?"


Call us!


for Jesus?

The Assemblies of God




St. Joe
ASSEMBLY OF GOD
309 6th St. Ph. 229-9200


It was the quote of the week,
"Whether your name is Gehrig or
Ripken, DiMaggio or Robinson, or
that of some youngster who picks
up his bat... you are challenged
by the game of baseball to do your
very best, day In and day out. And
that's all, that I've ever tried to do."
Cal Ripken, Jr. broke Lou Gehrig's
record for consecutive games
played. He has started in over
2,131 games despite illness or in-
jury, He is being called, "Iron Cal."
Ripken's phenomenal perse-
verance .and1 tenacity can be
passed over as luck, fortune, or
even fortitude. I think it is sum-
marized in a big word called "com-
mitment"., Commitment is what
keeps churches going, marriages
together, and society from collaps-
ing. It Is a trait ,that in many ways
is in diminishing supply in our
day.'
Commitment is a characteris-
tic that is not based on feelings
only. How many times did Cal
Ripken play when he felt bad, was
sick, or suffered from minor inju-
ry? I have all ideas plenty of times.
Commitment is what keeps you
going when you feel like quitting.
If we only serve and only love
when we feel like it, we will not
love or serve much. Somewhere I
heard that if you don't feel like lov-
ing and serving, keep doing It un-
til you do- feel like It. That's not a
bad definition of commitment.
One of my mentor/teachers,
Malcolm Tolbert, was fond of say-
ing there is too much "thyroid the-
ology" in the church. Too much of
what we do and how we behave is
based on how we feel. Tolbert
pointed out that how we feel often
has more to do with our thyroid
than it does with our faith. We live
In a "feel good" society. "It it feels
good, do it.' or "if it doesn't feel
good, stop- it" are bad axioms for
life.
While emotions are a large
part of who we are, they cannot be
the sole basis of what we do. If
feelings always dictate actions,
most of us will not be in the start-


ing lineup of the game of life. And.
there are already too many of us '
who mope on the bench or watch
from the cheap seats. We can't all
be Cal Ripken-but, perhaps we
can learn from his example.
The Apostle Paul admonished
the church at Philippi to, "stand
fast in one spirit, with one mind,
striving together for the faith of. -
the gospel:" (Philipplans 1:27
NKJV). Interestingly. "Stand fast"
and "striving together" are both
athletic metaphors describing the
readiness of the athlete and the
cooperative spirit of a team. "Striv-
ing together", in fact, is a com-
pound Greek verb whose main
root is the word from which we get
our word "athlete". In a day of
easy believism, shallow commit-
ment, quick-fix answers, and
near-sighted leadership, we need
to hear the call of Scripture and
heed the example of Cal Ripken,
Jr. For commitment these days is
in high demand, but short supply.

(DM)-Salads are synonymous with summer. This year go beyond the ordi-
nary and serve Bengal Salad, an intriguing combination of boneless lamb,
ripe cantaloupe, raisins and green onions. To replicate an appetizing East
Indian flavor, a simple mix of curry and Kikkoman Lite Teriyaki Marinade &
Sauce seasons the lamb. It's the unique blend of ginger and other spices along
with naturally brewed soy sauce, sugar, wine and garlic in bottled lite teriyaki
marinade & sauce that creates the special flavor of this main-dish salad. Plus,
it has over 50 percent less salt than regular bottled teriyaki sauces. To com-
plete this tasty and colorful salad, toss it with tangy lemon yogurt and serve
over lettuce.

Student of the week.
When she grows up she would
like to be a nurse, and she really
enjoys playing with her friend,
Deidra Jones. Her favorite TV
show is "Road Rats" and her favor2-
ite song is "Sweep Around Your
Own Front Door." Keneshia would
like to visit and stay in a motel.
'Keneshia said this about her-
self, :i feel good and I, play with
people I like." Miss Quinn said,
"Keneshla is a very special girl. I
enjoy having her in my class," She
does sound pretty special.

at singing, but I think I'll leave
that to the children. Thanks, Ann,
for coming out to Hawk land.

Our students are really taking
advantage of the chance to visit
businesses and see a wide variety
of career choices. Some of the
places being visited are television

When our children visit these Job
sites they can begin first hand to
see the different and exciting jobs
that there are to do in today's
world.
SI recently took my second
grade class and the members of
Hawk News 2 to visit WMBB and
watch a live show of the Mid-Day
Report with Amy Hoyt. While we
were at the station we learned
how reporters get their assign-,

and write the 'news broadcast

Behind the scenes are many
people who work hard but are

Their names are shown rolling by

children were very impressed by

several very good questions ere-

now we know why our cable bills
are so high.

What a game I mean the Ga-
tors' victory, 28-27, over Greens-
boro, not the Gators' victory over
Tennessee Saturday. Both were
exciting, but Friday night I didn't
get rained on for 35 minutes. The
Wewa Gators' game had some-'
thing for everyone,-I'm glad we
were able to hang on for the win.
The Junior high Gators
dropped to 1-1 Thursday night
losing to Liberty County High
School.
Girls' volleyball lost to Ruther-
ford, beat Port St. Joe, and then
lost to L.C.H.S. to wrap Up their
week.
This Thursday, Junior high
football hosts Sneads at 6:00 p.m.
The volleyballers host Apalachico-
la and Greensboro, also on Thurs-
day. Then, Friday night the Gator
varsity football team will host the
Sneads varsity at 7:00 p.m. I hope
you can see them all, but if not,
try to see some!
This Thursday is also the last
da of the first six weeks. Grades
wi soon be pouring in, and report
cards are due Monday, October 2.
I know you'll carefully discuss
youtr student's grades and either
congratulate them, or encourage
them to do better.,:
Betty Holloway and Tim Ham-
nion are spear-heading the drive
to notify all the classes. involved
this year for homecoming. Mrs.
Hollaway knows every student
who ever graduated from WHS (at
least it seems that way). Without
her, mopt former grads would nev-
er know they were being honored.
October 6 will be here before you
realize it. Start getting ready.
Many thanks to th'e' new spon-.
sors that have purchased advertis-
ing signs at the football' field. The
cash helps the Band Boosters pro-
vide many services for band mem-
bers. I
High school athletic events
are great sport and entertainment.
Unfortunately, some seem to
think it is an excuse for rowdiness


which sometimes' leads to some-
one being injured. Please-if you
bring'youngsters to the games, in-
sist that they watch the games,
rather than getting into mischief
with, others. We cannot provide
protection for every square inch of
room at the stadium, no matter
how many officers are present,
and withso many people and stu-
dents mingling, it's difficult to
identify the ones who cause prob-
lems.
