markets.
One of those is the harvest-
ing, processing, and shipping of
"Cannonball" Jellyfish to markets
in Korea and Japan.
"Cannonball Jellyfish have
historically been a nuisance for
recreational and commercial us-
ers of the waters of the Gulf of
Mexico. It's ironic that those crea-
tures might now provide, at. least
somewhat, of an economic breath
of fresh air for the troubled sea-
food industry.
"Cannonballs" make their an-
nual appearance in local waters
around the first of September ac-
cording to Gene Raffield, presi-
dent of Raffield's Fisheries. They
remain and flourish until the first
freeze, usually mid-December,
when they die and wash ashore.
Raffield's is using a 500
square foot trawl net, as pre-
scribed by the Net Ban Amend-
ment regulations, to catch the jel-
lyfish. The trawl net is pulled
between two boats in 15 35 feet
of water and suspends from the
surface down about four feet. It's
pulled at one and one-half knots
per hour with zero by-catch, ac-
cording to Raffield.
"Our goal is to catch 40,000
pounds per day which we can
usually do by making 4 5 tows
of no more than 25 minutes,"
Raffleld said.
They are currently working
an area off-shore stretching from
St. Joe Beach to Tyndall Air Force
Base.
After catching the jellyfish,
the upper cone portion is separat-
ed from the body and tentacle
portion. 100% of the 'Cannon-
balls" are processed but the
upper and lower sections bring a
different price, so they are pro-
cessed separately.
They are then placed in a wet
brine solution four days fol-
lowed by a five day dry salt aging
which pickles them.
The "Cannonballs" are then
drained and packed for their
shipping destinations in Korea
and Japan where they are consid-

The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission held their final public
hearing on the proposed Land De-
velopment Regulation Code Tues-
day evening prior to the regularly
scheduled board meeting.
City commissioners and com-
mittee chairman, Tom Gibson,
corrected several minor typo's
and wording changes before put-
ting their final stamp of approval
on the document.
The only significant change
the commission made was to re-
word zoning regulations within
1,000 feet of the hospital, allow-
ing medical offices and buildings
to operate within the 1000 foot
buffer.
Land use regulation codes
are being consolidated into one
document in order to help the
city comply with requirements In
Gulf County's Comprehensive
Plan. The newly adopted code
gathers all of the city's ordinanc-
es and codes dealing with zoning,
building codes, and land use into
one 70-page document.
WWTP To Look Over
Power Source .
Mayor Frank Pate told the
board that the Tri-partite" Com-
mittee is recommending that a
cheaper power source be investi-
gated to operate the-city'ssWast6-
water Treatment Plant.
The "Tri-partite" is made up
of representatives from St Joe
Forest Products, Arizona Chemi-
cal, and the City of Port St.; Joe.
The three parties share in plant
operation expenses using a for-
mula in proportion to the amount
of effluent each party sends to
the Wastewater Treatment Plant
to be treated.
Pate told the board that the
group would like to evaluate the
possibility of generating their own
power, using natural gas for fuel,
or purchasing excess power from
St. Joe Forest Products Compa-
ny.
"Our annual power bill to op-
erate the Wastewater Treatment
Plant is nearly $800,000 per
year," Pate told the board.
The committee is recom-
mending that we check into the
alternatives and determine if sig-
nificant savings are possible
through one of them," Pate said.

Superintendent, questioned the
board about drainage problems in
the vicinity of Highway 98 and
Avenue A, and how they were ad-
dressed in the stormwater drain-
age plan submitted by Preble-
Rish, Inc.
The plan was submitted to
the board 'for their consideration
to implement as a long-range
plan to solve stormwater drainage
problems within the city over the
next 15-20 years.
Mayor Pate suggested that
the city contact DOT concerning
the problems at Highway 98 and
Avenue A since it was a state
road.
He added, "We should ap-
proach them about installing
'French drains' similar to the
ones they recently installed off
Highway 98 at the beach."

Decision Slated
on Shrimp Net
The Florida Supreme Court
was scheduled to meet Wednes-
day for a final decision on the
legality of the abbreviated Golden
shrimp net The net was devel-
oped by Buford Golden of
Eastpoint following the Net Ban
Amendment to comply with new
net size rules.
Shrimpers won a temporary
permission to use the new net in
a circuit court hearing in
Apalachicola before Judge Kevin
Davie.
Opponents of the net
appealed the decision which was
later held in Tallahassee with the
question being sent to the
Supreme Court for a final deci-
sion.

Homecoming L


HOMECOMING1
What does "Homecoming' mean to you? It's that time of the
year, here in Port St. Joe, you know. Different "Homecomings"
mean different things to different people. This one is especially
meaningful to us, but "Homecoming" should be especially mean-
ingful to all of us. Whether it is "Homecoming" at your particular
church, or "Homecoming" at your particular school, the activities
involved should be meaningful to us all; meaningful for different
reasons, but meaningful, nevertheless.
This year's "Homecoming" is being made especially meaning-
ful to a number of Port St. Joe High School graduates, from the
class of 1946 to the class of 1986. That period of time spans 40
years and if you extend the ceremonies to honor the class of
1996-the current graduating class-it covers a span of 50
years!
THE CLASS OF 1946 (of which this writer is a member] has
some memories of a school-time which is very different from the
, school experience of today. Featuring us in .their "'Homecoming"
ceremonies this year, brings this vividly back to our memories.
For instance, we never had a "Homecoming" celebration in a
modern stadium such as is the case of today. When we celebrat-
ed that special day and ball game in 1945, the "Big Game" was
played on the empty piece of property on the east end of the
Centennial Building along with its bumper crop of sand-
spurs..... in the day-time!
Of course, we had our "Homecoming Queen"' the perkiest,
prettiest and most popular girl of the class, Eloise Scheffer,.who.
will be present tomorrow and just happens to be the aunt of Al
and Richard Scheffer [although you can't tell it by looking!]
THE "SURVIVORS" OF the class of 1946 will especially en-
joy "Homecoming 1995" for attracting so many of us back to the
old alma mater, whether the rest of you people do, or not! We'll
have our "Mr. Football" our Homecoming Queen, our football
center and several others there. See you at the game!


Hunker Down with Kes


If It Ain't Fixed-Mary H


are we going to vote


"I don't know," Yogi pondered
a moment. This was serious busi-
ness. "Charlene is about the nic-
est one in the whole bunch, day
in and day out,"
"Charlene looks like death:
eating a cracker! I wouldn't vote,
for her if she was the only girl in
the class." Ricky Gene fairly spit
the words our to accent his obvi-
ous non-support.
We fell silent for a moment.'
Ricky Gene wasn't going to
vote for Charlene Clark because
she, dumped him last summer for
Horis Mayo's cousin who was up
visiting from Memphis. :
"I'd like to 'vote-her one time'
up 'side the head with a two-by-
four. She can't win with that pen-
cil neck .. .'and have ya'll no-
ticed how much bigger her right


eye is than the left" Ricky Gene
took their falling our pretty hard.
"And you can't eat a hamburger
with her-phe gets little pieces of
meat stuck between her teeth."
Homecoming Queen picking
has its vicious side.
We were hanging around the
locker room after football practice
figuring on who "ought to get it."
"LaRenda puts on. no airs.
She's the same every time you see
her. You can't say that for all of
them."
"She sure helped me in alge-
bra last year."
"What about Katie or Judy-
both of them have done most of
my homework for years." Larry
wasn't kidding either.
"You know, we've fought and
fussed and dated and grew up
with these girls-they're all pretty
good."
o "Not Charlenel There's noth-
Ing pretty or good-"
"My pick would be Ruth
Ann." Yogi didn't date her and
they weren't even particularly
close. We turned in his direction,
waiting for an explanation. "She's'


Just so quiet and nice and unas-
suming and she wouldn't expect
it. It would be great for someone
like that to win."
Ruth Ann would be a good
choice. 'Course, they, were all
good-
"Hey Kes, you haven't said a.
word. What about Mary E.?"
I ignored the question and
the laughter. I was thinking
about Yogi. He had dated Nola
Purcell all these years. I know
they had gone their separate
ways just recently-but. 'I doubt-
ed his announced stand for Ruth;
Ann Wiley. Nola had his vote ....
. and his heart.
"Kes, you can be Mary E.'s
right-hand escort. We'll find
someone else for the other side."-,
"Yes, it will take twol!"
More laughter.
"It'll be the only court in
homecoming parade history that
will need nine convertibles and a
flat bedded truck!"
Mary E. Pendleton was not
that big! She was riot fat at all.
She was tall and big boned-And,
rather attractive, really. We had

been kidding her adut her size
since the first grade. The guys
also had been "on me" about
Mary E. ever since she dropped
that very first "I Love You" valen-
tine card on my desk twelve years
ago and announced her intei-
tions to the entire world.
"Kes, who are you going to
vote for?"
It was our senior year. I'd
never given much thought to
homecoming queens or all the
hoopla before. I believed that stuff
the coaches told us about home-
coming getting our minds off the
football game. I usually voted for
whoever Leon told me to. I did
vote for Diane Stoner my sopho-
more year because she'd let me
chew her gum while she was in
2nd period English.
This year .was different. Mary
Hadley Hayden was in the con-
test! And, I'd been giving lots of
thought to Mary Hadley for over a
year now. "Course. she was dat-
ing Junior Blackburn and so I did

Just Keep Quiet


ALL IT TAKES FOR bad things to happen is for good people
to remain silent, someone once said; or words to that effect. The
opposite of that cliche is also true; to bring about change, all it
takes is for good people to speak out, strong enough! '
That seems to be what has happened in -the matter of Time
Warner and their marketing of "gangsta rap". Good people all
over the nation objected to something which was extremely dis-
tasteful to them and destructive of our society and its children.
As a result, Time Warner has decided too drop a sensational-
and therefore profitable-operation in the name of decency.
GOOD PEOPLE OBJECTED to the so-called art and ob-
tained the support of William Bennett, former drug czar, former
education secretary and generally outspoken member of national
government to fight the cancer of indecent and openly defiant
language of the belligerent rap music tapes to get a big-time pro-
ducer out of the market.
Bennett joined up with C. Delores Tucker, chairwoman of
the National Congress of Black Women, in a lengthy crusade
against tlie music's violent and sexually explicit content. 'They
kept repeating the same message, over arid tver againr, whe-ever
they could get an audience. The reputation 'of the two and with
the highly vocal backing of John Q. Citizen, got the job done.
OF COURSE WE should not forget the fact that Time Warner
executives had the insight to recognize genuine outrage from the
general public when they saw it and react accordingly. Bennett,
Tucker, and the remainder of the good people of the nation, join
in applauding their decision, for whatever reason they agreed to
the decision to divorce themselves of this segment of the record-
ing industry.


Watch Out For Yourself

So Gulf County is preparing for its second storm warning
this season as the edition of The Star goes to press on Wednes-
day morning. Storms, approaching or present, cause us much
consternation, just as they do you.
When the power goes down [an ever-present threat during a
storm it not only puts the lights out, shuts the freezer down,
cuts off the cook stove, and [shudder] shuts the air conditioning
down, but it also shuts off our computers and our press just
won't run without the electric motor to power it. We are out of
printing power for the duration. Let's all be prepared to make
the most of the situation, and above all, play it safe!

IS THERE A conspiracy or
something going on here? Is eve-
rybody ganging up on me? What
is happening?
I have gone along with only
an occasional sampling of the
baker's art from my many faithful
readers, which I have appreciated
greatly-the samples, that Is-,
and tasted at various times
throughout the week. At no time
recently has a succulent tid-bit
which has been delivered to the
office been Just wolfed down as if
there was never to be another
morsel quite like the one which
happens to be the center of atten-
tion at the moment.
In the latest series of events,
a pan of piping hot cinnamon
rolls which had been whipped up
from a sour dough starter mix,
baked, and placed before me as
an offering for my delicate but
ravenous taste-buds to savor, ap-
peared seemingly from out of no-
where.
The same thing happened to

NOW, ALONG CAME Jessie
Core with a loaf of piping hot ba-'
nana nut bread.
Honest, I didn't ask for It, nor
do I owe Jessie anything. She just
baked It and brought It by. She
does things like that pretty often
but this. last effort happened to
come just 10 days after the "cin-
namon roll" caper.
What I want to know is this;


are you people trying to make me
fat again?
And, where are the rest qf the
usual contributors to the Star
tasting competition?
I want to tell all of you other
bakers out there, you'll not make
me fat again! I won't let you! I eat
only a child's portion of your con-
tributioris at the time so I won't
return to my former corpulent
stature.
Don't feel guilty and if you
are trying to make me fat .
keep It up!

THE BEST PART of this job


is receiving amplings of some-
,body's recipe book. I have learned
to be sparing with my ingestion of
good things to eat .:. to enjoy
them and not over-do it. So, you;
see, you aren't harming me any
at all.
I've received samplings, with
somewhat regularity, of diverse.
goodies from Port St. Joe kitch-
ens, such as cream puffs, fruit
cake..rum cake, lane cake, cus-
tard pie, barbecued chicken-ribs-
pork. deer sausage, chitterlings
and rice [admittedly not my favor-
ite] turnips, i brunswick stew,
chocolate fudge, home-madeL
bread, creamed corn, squid, and
a host of other, goodies.
Oh, yes, I nearly forgot! On
occasion, I have been fortunate
enough to receive some crackling
Scorn bread! Talk about good!

I GET THE opportunity to re-
ceive samplings of all kinds of
good things to eat here at the of-


flee ,
But, my memory continues to
tantalize my taste buds with the
memory of some 25 years ago,
when Dr. Wayne Hendrix took
out' my appendix one Sunday
morning before a Labor Day holl-
day. I had been bothered with ap-'
pendicitis symptoms for a day or
two and he advised me to go
home and rest. "Just keep an eye
on things and if the situation be-
gins to get worse, you call me im-
mediately," he advised me on a
Friday afternoon.
Well, about 9:00 Sunday
morning, I gave him a call and
told him things were changing. .
. for the worse. He said, "Meet me
at the hospital in 30 minutes." I
did and he took those little bug-
gers out before dinner.
Well, I went through all that
to tell, you that the next day his
wife, Ruth, brought a large platter
of steamed arid iced stohe crab
claws by my room at the hospital.


There I was with a plate of
delicacies and I didn't feel like
eating them. I took care' of those
babies a few days later, though.

WHAT I'M GETTING at here,
Is this: if, indeed, there Is a con-
spiracy afoot to sabotage my
weight loss actLvites of the past
year, it ain't gonrna workI You Just
keep on trying, though.
I admire your efforts and en-
joy the good taste of your "pot rat-
tling". I'll not try to kid you there.
I have achieved, a new level of
will-power which, along with my
inability to eat large amounts of
anything at a sitting with the re-
-cent removal of my tonsils puts
me in the cat-bird's seat.
I can eat all the good foods I
formerly ate and still have the
limftatlons forced on me by the
throat work so that I don't over-
eat.
That's an enviable position to

She played ball, swam in Sugar,

pony tail. She got her braces off.
She quit chewing. She grew a lit-

She also asked me to go with

thsylVAPIA


If you were, out driving'
around the streets of Port St. Joe
on Saturday, you probably saw
something a little different than
you expected. Some 103, Gulf
County residents came out to
participate in the 4th Annual
WalkAmerica for the March of
Dimes. This wonderful group of.
business people and students
worked to raise $5,147.00 and
will help to ensure that the mis-
sion of the March of Dimes, that
of preventing birth defects, 'will
continue. .
A big part of WalkAmerica
success came from the business-
es that formed teams with bosses
and employees. Walk organizers
would like to thank the following
businesses for taking part in that
way: Citizens Federal, First Un-
ion. Gulf Pines Hospital. PSJHS
Kevettes. PSJHS Key Club, NHC
Home Care, Project Mold-A-Male,
St. Joe Natural Gas, St. Joe Pa-
permakers, St; Joe Telecommuni-
cations. Chamber of Commerce
and Wewa State Bank.
"It was very moving to see
this many people come out ..in
support of the March of Dimes,"
said : Gil Williams, WalkAmerica
Chairman, "I was ecstatic when I

people in every community that

their time, we will see this figure
,drop as all of America's babies
will be given the chance to be
born healthy.


Due to recent calls received
by the Gulf County Public
Health Unit in Port St. Joe re-
garding the handling of rabies
exposure or animal bites and\or
rabies exposure, the following

incident to the Gulf County Pub-
lic Health Unit, and/or the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department
Adequate information regarding
victim's,home address and tele-
phone number should be pro-
vided to speed investigation.

tainer and submitted to the Gulf

year anniversary of moving our We want to say thank you for
home and opening our office the welcome that we have re-
here. In August of 1994 when we I: e led.
were trying to decide if we wanted ". Sincerely,,
to leave not only Birmingham, Frank and Donna Selfert
but our friends, clients, and our
beautiful home, I met individually
with Gil Willianms and Greg John-
son, who both told me basically
the same thing-Port St. Joe was
a city that had the charm and
grace of the past, and we have ; ., .
found that to be very true. The x
people of Port St. Joe act like real ,: .t

year, not only have we made new
friends and obtained new clients,
our love for the town and area -
has grown.
We want to thank everyone
for the welcome we have received
and only hope that over the many
years that we live here (only
,death could take me away) we
'can show the same welcome and
friendship others have shown us.
It is a real .change to live
where there .is very little crime, -
where the people seem to be gen- F
uine friendly, where if you go into
a store the clerks and other peo-
ple actually talk to you, where the
objects of nature constantly
amazed us, where 'it really is a

BSJCC Residents Cruise to Hawaii


Residents at Bay St. Joseph
Care Center used their imagina-
tion recently and went on a week-
long cruise to Hawaii. They pre-
pared for their cruise for a month
in advance, by making an array
of colorful flowers and decora-


tions, and preparing special activ-
ities and menus to go along with
a cruise.
They held a "Bon Voyage"
party on Monday with plenty of
Hawaiian bread and pineapple
punch, served while they watched


as their very own volcano erupt-
ed.
Other fun days included a
cocktail party, Hawaiian supper
club, and a demonstration of the
art of carving watermelon bas-
kets. The journey ended on the
Island of Oahu (which means the
gathering place). Also, a grand
luau took place in the main din-
ing room with roasted pork, Ha-
waiian vegetables and fruit bas-
kets for residents to enjoy.
Entertainment was provided
by the Claire and Nelson Viles
Combo from Carrabelle. Resi-
dents enjoyed the Hawaiian mu-
sic throughout dinner, followed
by a little after-dinner dancing.


Each resident was presented
with a flower for their hair and a
lei around their neck. Their part-
ing comment on the voyage was,
"Where are we going next?"

Consumers Can
"Log On" For
Latest Fraud Tips
From the Office Of.:
Bob Butterworth
Attorney General
The latest in consumer pro-
tection information is as close as
a home computer now that the
Florida Attorney, General's Office
has joined the Internet.
The attorney general's office
established a home page on the
Internet's World Wide Web in May
to, be more responsive to the
needs of Floridians, Attorney
General Bob Butterworth said.
"It's been estimated that at
least 30 percent of today's house-
holds have personal computers.
By entering the computer age, we
are able to provide consumers
with the latest tips on protecting
themselves from fraud around
the clock and without their ever
leaving home." he said.
The attorney general's home
page can be reached through:
-http://legal.firn.edu/
Those accessing the .attorney
general'sa office through the Inter-
net are able to enter the Florida
Citizen Safety Center. This fea-
ture provides information on
crime prevention as well as con-
sumer protection.
"When it comes to consumer
protection, there are more than
30 topics to choose from, every-
thing from buying a used car to
investing in wireless cable," But-
terworth explained.
All a consumer has to do is
select one of the topics. Once the
selection is made, the consumer
can learn what questions to ask
and how to protect themselves.
"Anyone considering leasing
an automobile, for instance, can
select 'car leasing' and receive ex-,
pert advice from our consumer
attorneys on what to expect from
a lease and what to beware of,"
Butterworth said..
Among the tips offered under
"Car Leasing" are:
-never rely on verbal promises
made by salesmen;
-never give the salesman a de-
posit before you read, reread, un-
derstand and are completely sat-
isfied with any lease agreement;
-once a consumer signs a lease,
they have no legal right to cancel.
As the: project enters Its sec-
ond month of operation, the at-
torney general said interest has
been high. Plans are in progress
fora substantial expansion of the
Internet site in the near future.
For specific information on
the Florida Citizen Safety Center,

mapiqn director, at (904) 487-

Wins Tapper Tourney

Larry Strickland's 225 in three days of golf was good enough
to take the coveted green jacket for first prize in last week end's
Tapper Invitational Tournament.
Strickland, a Columbus, Georgia golfer, led all the way in the
three-day event to take the championship seat away from last:
year's winner, Stacey Kirvin of Apalachicola. KiMrin, who entered
this year's tournament also, took only "low score" honors on the
last round on Sunday afternoon. This was Strickland's first time
to win the big prize at theltournament, which offers substantial
prizes to the top three golfers in the 11 flights.
As usual, the tournament slots were filled again this year,
with all proceeds going to the scholarship program of Gulf Coast
Community College in Panama City. The Tapper Tournament
has raised over $100,000 for the, scholarship program.
This year was the 22nd playing of the tournament, which

was first started by the late George G. Tapper. Gulf Coast has
profited from the tournament only during the past few years. It
is an annual event of the first week end in October.

141 total yards, only 24 of which
were on the ground.
The Hornets fumbled on sec-
ond down after receiving the
opening kickoff and the Gators
recovered the ball on the Hornets'
seven yard line, giving them a first
and goal. After two running plays
and a five yard penalty, Matt
Kearce connected with David
Hysmith on a six yard touchdown
pass, with Hysmith adding the
extra point kick after only three
minutes of play.
The Hornets then struck back
with an 80 yard drive for a touch-
down that evened the score at 7-
7. Sean Bailey returned the ensu-
ing Hornet kickoff into Cottondale
territory, giving the Gators excel-
lent field position.
Hysmith, who gained 95
yards on 22 carries, scored on a
one yard run just one minute into
the second quarter and added the
point after for a 14-7 lead.
With Cottondale driving late
in the half, Matt Kearce intercept-
ed a pass with less than a minute
left and returned it 20 yards to


the Hornets' 35 yard line to end
the scoring threat.
In the third quarter, the ball
changed hands five times when
the defensive units took over for
12 minutes. The Gators took over
the game in the fourth quarter
controlling the ball for the first
nine minutes before Ike Mincy
scored on a one yard run.
Cottondale's Lee Jones
returned the Gator kickoff 85
yards for a touchdown to make
the score 21-14, with less than
three minutes remaining.
The Gators ran the clock
down to 49 seconds before
Tranum McLemore punted the
ball down to the Cottondale 12
yard line where the defense held
on for a 21-14 victory.

WHAT IS IN A NAME?


V Whenever you consider buying a product and it has a name
that you recognize, or is made by a company you are familiar
with, it will always give you a certain confidence that what you
are getting is of good quality. It is the same when you select a
pharmacy to get your medicines and health needs from, or a
family physician.
Your doctor and pharmacist feel the same way about
companies who make pharmaceutical products. Although some
drugs may be made by many firms, your physician usually
specifies the exact brand name he feels will be the safest for you.
Because we stock only medicines made by reputable firms, we
too feel confident that we are always dispensing drugs that are
dependable.

Baker's offense completely
dominated the Sharks defense.
Anchored by running back Leroy
Butler and -quarterback Jamie
Johnson, the Gators scored in all
four quarters of the contest. It
could have been worse if two first
quarter touchdowns had not been
nullified by Baker holding penal-
ties.
The Sharks got their only
points of the game with 3:02 re-
maining in the fourth quarter
when Barry Adkison found Andre
Thomas in the end zone for an
eight-yard touchdown strike. The
extra point attempt was no good.
The drive covered 80 yards on
eight plays highlighted by catches
of 11 and 30 yards by Brian Jen-
kins and Thomas.
The only other serious scor-
ing threat by the Sharks came
mid-way through the second
quarter, but a bad center snap
ended a field goal try from the 25-
yard line. Three consecutive pass
receptions by Des Baxter, good
for 15, four and 13 yards, along
with a 12-yard run on the quar-
terback -keeper by Ryan Yeager
had put the Sharks within field
goal range.

GFI Looks at The American Indian Culture


The inmates at Gulf Forestry Camp observed America's
Culture week last Friday with a dinner in the main dining
hall, which was decorated in a theme to recognize the Amer-
ican Indian. A program was presented by Brenda Davila in
which she told of the Indian Culture in Northwest Florida
and the role they played in inhabiting North Florida and the
Indian civilization they brought, before the white man ever
* came to the area. The Indian, too, came to the Florida
coast, lured here by the delicious and abundant seafood and
the famous Florida weather.
The decorations were put in the dining hall by the GFC


Inmates, under the direction of Phyllis Davis. Brenda Davila
was in charge of the arrangements, with Polly Hardy, Audra
Stokes, and Barbara Sims, assisting. The dinner featured
foods common to the Indian diet.
In the photo at left an Indian home is shown with some
of the trappings. In the center photo, Phylis Davis inspects
a table showing many of the Indian tools, toys and handi-
crafts. In the photo at right, Brenda Davila displays a corner
piece, made by the inmates, consisting of a waterfall, a tur-
key and some of the other animals the Indians regularly
hunted for food.


Many Popular Bulbs Don't Do Well In Florida


As the saying goes, We have
some good news and some bad
news on bulbs for Florida. That
is, many flowering bulbs that are
popular with our Northern neigh-
bors do not grow well in our mild
climate. These include tulips,
hyacinths, and some of the irises
and lilies. That's the bad news.
The good news is that many tropi-
cal and subtropical bulbs will
thrive here. Plants such as cri-
nums, Easter lilies, gladiolus,
and amaryllis.

These plants may have true

Bulbs will tolerate varying

PAIN BETWEEN TOES
Pain in the forefoot, between the
toes, often is a symptom of neuromas.
These are growths on nerves. They
result from the action of bones
rubbing and irritating the nerves. The
most common sites are between 'the
second and third and the third and
fourth toes.
Repeated stress and shock can'
lead to irritation of the nerves. For
example, the condition occurs among
bus and truck drivers from pressing
hard on stiff brake pedals. People
whose metatarsal bones are too close
together are especially prone to
neuromas.


Depending on -
the individual case,
treatment by 'the
podiatrist may in-
clude injected medications, properly
fitted shores or orthotic shoe inserts.
In some cases, relief from pain can be
obtained only be removing the nerve
growth through a surgical procedure.
This often is done in the podiatrist's
office.

Water is probably the most
important consideration in grow-
ing bulbs. Keep the soil moist at
all times. As long as your soil
drains well, but not too rapidly, a
good soaking every four to eight
days is enough. Toward the end
of the growing period, let up on
the amount of water you give-
your plants.
Most bulbs like direct sun-
light, and will flower best when
they; are in the sun most of the
day. Light, afternoon shadows are
desirable. 'Avoid heavy shade, be-
cause it will cause thin, spindly
growth and reduce flowering.
One aspect of growing flower-
ing bulbs in Florida probably
causes more confusion than any
other. That's deciding whether to
dig them up for storage after the
blooming season. Some of the
bulbs we grow here are evergreen.
You can leave these in the
ground, year after year, if they're
protected from frost In the winter.
Others die down each year. Some
of these also can be left in the
ground, undisturbed. Others are
subject to rotting and won't sur-
vive unless they are dug and
stored.


As I said, this can cause
some confusion. So, instead of
trying to give some workable
rules on when to dig bulbs, and
when not to dig, we really must
suggest that you check with your
garden center or. County Exten-
sion Office, for advice on what to
do with the particular kinds of
bulbs you're growing.
In summary, I'll remind you
that, while many bulbs that are
popular in northern states will
not do well here, we still have a
wide variety of such plants from
which to choose. Bulbs need rich,
fertile, well-drained soils, ade-
quate moisture, and protection
from Insects and diseases. And,
they grow best in areas which re-
ceive full sun most of the day,
with light shade in the afternoon.
Also, some must be dug. and
Istored after the blooming season.
'I lf you're not growing bulbs, give
-.Opme a try. They'll brighten up
your landscape.

FHP Director Warns Public of Attempt


to Bilk People of Thousands of Dollars


Colonel Ron Grimming, Di-
rector of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, has issued a consumer alert
concerning a scheme to bilk thou-
sands of dollars from family
members in a fictitious traffic ac-
cident scenario. Recently, four
Fort Lauderdale yacht brokers
were the apparent target of a tele-
phone fraud scheme by people
posing as law enforcement offi-
cers and medical care officials.
The victims are generally con-
tacted by a person representing
himself as an official with a state
police or highway patrol organiza-
tion. This person informs the un-
suspecting victim that one of
their family members has been
involved in a serious traffic crash
and will receive another tele-
phone call momentarily from an
air ambulance company concern-
ing transportation of the family-
member to another medical facili-
ty for medical care. The second
caller contacts the victim and.
asks that a payment of anywhere
from $5,000 to $7,000 be wired
via Western Union to "Mrs.
Stone" in Lansing, Michigan for
air ambulance services. The caller
will also ask personal questions
concerning the last time the vic-
tim has heard from or spoken
with the family member that is
the subject of the scheme.
"This type of scheme is unfor-
givable," said Colonel Grimming.
"These unscrupulous people are
using tragedy, family emotion,
and the good names of law en-
forcement agencies to carry out
their criminal agenda and they
must be stopped," Grimming add-
ed.
The FHP is urging the public
to be aware of these types of tele-
phone scams and to be suspi-
cious if they receive a telephone
call under those circumstances,
especially if money is requested.
Victims or potential victims
should try to immediately contact
the police agency being represent-
ed by the caller, which in most
cases has been the Florida High-
way Patrol. Persons receiving this
type of call should also make any
notations about the caller's voice,
request a call back number, and
take advantage of the caller ID
features If they have the equip-
ment installed.
"No legitimate law enforce-
ment agency, hospital or ambu-
lance service would use this type
of tactic during a tragedy or medi-


cal emergency. The primary goal
is to obtain immediate care to all
injured persons and if it becomes
necessary for them to be trans-
ported to another facility in an.
emergency, this is done without
. regard to any payment considera-
tions until after the trauma has
been stabilized," Grimming said.
Suspicious calls of this na-


ture should be reported to any
Florida Highway Patrol station
immediately.

Community Health Notes from the Gulf County Health Department

What to Do if Your Child

Comes Home with Head Lice


Don't panic. Anyone-adult
or youngster-can get head lice.
Head lice are. passed from person
to person by direct contact or on
shared objects (combs, towels,
headphones etc.) It has nothing to
do with cleanliness and does not
reflect poorly on you as a parent.
Lice can be easily and effectively
treated..
Head lice are tiny insects that
live in human hair. They hatch
from small eggs, called nits,
which are attached to the base of
individual hairs. The eggs hatch
in. about 10 days, with the new
lice reaching maturity in about
two weeks. The female louse can
live for 20 to 30 days and can lay
as much as six eggs a day. Since
lice multiply fast, they should be
treated promptly.
Persistent itching of the head
and back of the neck can indicate'
head lice. Carefully examine hair
and scalps of all family members
for lice and their eggs. Lice are
small grayish-tan wingless in-
sects. Nits or eggs are small sil-
very specks which are firmly
attached to the hair shafts, close
*' to the scalp. Occasionally there
inay be swelling of the lymph
glands near the ears and neck.
Once head lice are found, the
problem should be taken care of
promptly in order to prevent it
from spreading to others. Your
physician can advise you about
treatment with a medicine called
a pedlcullclde. This medication is
available, over the counter, at
your drugstore or through the
Gulf County Health Department.
Following treatment with the
medicine, all nits must be
removed from the hair:and scalp
by hand. A fine tooth nit comb
can assist in nit removal. Our
Gulf County schools have a "no
nit policy" which means that all
eggs must be removed before the
child can return to the classroom.
Even after all lice are removed
from the hair and scalp, the dan-
ger of reinfestation may still exist
because lice can survive in the
environment for up to four days.
Also, nits which normally hatch
in about 10 days, can lie dormant
for'several weeks and then hatch
to reinfest members of your fami-
ly. To avoid reinfestation, it is
important to thoroughly clean
your child's home environment.
Wash all clothes, bed linens and
towels with hot water and dry on
hot cycle for at least 20 minutes.


Soak combs and brushes in hot
water (at least 1300) for at least 10
minutes. Dry clean hats and
clothing that cannot be washed or
seal in a plastic bag for at least
two weeks.
Vacuum all carpets, uphol-
stery, pillows, mattresses, and
even the car seats. A lice control
insecticide available at your phar-
macy. can also be used on house-
hold items that can't be washed
or dry cleaned.
Public health officials believe
the incidence of head lice infesta--
tion is on the rise. If one child's
infestation is overlooked, the
stage is set for transmission to
the community. Remember, head
lice can be .easily and effectively
,treated.

vices.


Dear Counselor,
My wife and I are having prob-
lems deciding on punishment for
our children. It seems that when
I'm at work she decides what she
is going to-do and when I get home
I'm often not happy with what she
does. She often seems to be too
lejjienit o'n"ffhi"andT think they
need more strict punishments to


keep them from doing their wrong
act again. What do you suggest I,
can do?
-Angry Husband
Dear Angry Husband:
You discuss a problem many
, parents find themselves falling
into with their children. You used
Sthe word "punished.:" This word
infers your will being forced on :
another, often in a humiliating
way. "Consequences," however,
means that the action of the child
brings about some event-a posi-
tive action brings about a positive
consequence and a negative
action results in a negative conse-
quence. The child earns the con-
sequence. Parents often feel like if
the child acts out, they need to
make an immediate response.
However, maybe you can sit down
with your wife and work out some
guidelines which you both feel
might be adequate consequences
for their behavior. If there is a sit-
uation, where one of you is gone
and the other parent is unsure of
how to handle the situation it is
often all right to have the child
wait in a safe place until the other
parent comes home. This shows
the child that you both agree and
cannot be manipulated against. If
you and your wife are unable to
come to agreements perhaps
counseling would be beneficial.
Sincerely,
S Scott Johnson, M.S.
Outreach Counselor

Krystal Norris Is 2nd Grade
Student Of The Week
Second grade teacher. April
Bidwell. chose Krystal Norris as
the Student of the Week". She is
the 7-year-old daughter of
Charles and Lisa Pettis and,
Glenn Norris. Her favorite thing
to do is to read a book. When she
grows up, she would like to be a
teacher.. Her favorites are: ITV
show, "Saved By The Bell"; song,
"Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls";
and her favorite color is pink.
Krystal says this about her-
self, "I like school because it is
fun and you get to see friends. I
like math because it helps people
know how to count up to 100 and
all kind of stuff. I like to write sto-
ries because you can write about
your family and draw pictures of
other prople." Her teacher says
Krystal is a a very good student
cooperative, and a hard worker.

Calling Teachers
Parents, if you need a confer-
ence with your child's teacher,
please call the school at 639-
2476, or the communicator at
639-3318.
Sometimes, though, you just
need to ask one quick question.
Teachers don't mind being called
at home. We feel like it's part of
the job and goes with the territo-
ry.
As I thought about this I was
reminded of one of the busiest
people I know who never minded
being called at home, and that
was the late Dr. Malcolm Traxler.
One of the busiest pediatricians
in Panama City, he never had an
unlisted number, nor did he
make one feel like they-were in-
truding when one had. to call.
Sometimes getting the answer to
one simple little question makes
all the difference. I have always
given my home number to par-
ents and I rarely get calls; but
when I do, I'm glad to help out.
This is a people business.
WES Extends Sympathy
Mr. Kelley and the staff of
WES would like to extend its
sympathy to the families of Joe
Gortman and Derrell Barlow.
Both young men lost their lives in
accidents just a short while ago.
Both were students here at one
time and will be sorely missed by
all.

5, at the main school site and
teachers will be available for
questions.
The K-3 and K-4 classes had
their Open House visitations at
the Kindergarten Annex on 8th
Street on Monday and Tuesday of
this past week. We thank our
parents for coming because we,
believe that communication, with
understanding, is'vital to the edu-
cation process of every student.
Our teachers are excited
about their annual retreat at St.
Simons Island, Georgia. Th '.is
the 25th Anniversary of-rWiAV iig
Women of Florida, .an- interde-
nominational group of women
that sponsors Bible Clubs during
the year and Fall and Spring 'Re-
treats.
Our teachers have had the
privilege of hearing such women
as Gloria Galther, Lucy Stvindall,
Elizabeth Elliott, Barbara John-
son and) Margaret Jenson. This
year's main speakers will be Ney
Bailey, whose book "Faith Is Not A
Feeling" has been translated into
several'languages and Pat Well-
man, who will share a warm and,
. :often humorous look at life. They
will be joined by mother-daughter
musical team, Judy and Trena
Rogers. Add to these the beautiful
setting and quiet atmosphere of
Epworth-by-the-Sea Center at St.
Simons Island; and you get a
wonderful time of learning and
rest.
School will be out for stu-

Homecoming's coming! Stud-
ents out at 12 Friday! This
Friday, Oct, 6, is Homecoming for
the Gators (never mind that we're
just ending a long home stand).
The parade is at 2:00 PM, the game
against Robt. Munroe High School
'is at 7:00 P.M. and the homecom-
ing dance will follow the game.
Only WHS senior high students
and their dates and alumni are
invited to the' dance. It is not open
to the general public.
The Gator footballers managed
to hold off a late rally by Cottondale
to keep their win streak alive, 21-
14. Junior high Gators dropped a
close e 8-6 game to Carrabelle, and
:our volleyballers continued to
impress, splitting with Chipley and
Blountstown last week.
This year's School Improve-
ment Committee will meet Oct.
18th (Wed.). Letters will be sent out


Larry A. Mathnes
to all members notifying them of
the meeting. This committee will
make recommendations, for school
goals as required by the state edu-
cation department. The goals
selected this year will also play a
part in the SACS review that rec-
ommends WHS accreditation.
I should have mentioned above
the coronation ceremonies for
homecoming will take place before
game time, so you need to come
early. Remember, all home varsity
games this year start at.7 PM, not
7:30. Some of our fans are arriving
after the games are underway, so
come early and get your money's
worth.
Remember Varsity game tick-'
ets may be purchased all day
Friday, up till 2 PM, at a reduced
price. The elementary school, Wewa
State Bank, and the Credit Union
also have pre-sale tickets available.

Births Cost

Tax Millions:.
A study by Florida health offi-

The Journal of the Florida Medical'.
Association indicates that taxpay-
ers could save hundreds of mil-

cal expenses by' providing
counseling and family planning to
Women to avoid unwanted preg-
nancies.
The results of a study pub-
lished in the August 1995 Issue of
The Journal of the Florida Medical
Association show that the cost to
taxpayers for providing prenatal,
obstetrical and after-birth care
through Medicaid to Florida moth-
ers who either do not want to have

babies at all or want to wait to
have them amounts to $185-$400
million yearly.

pregnancy and childbearing are
well known. Among possible re-
sults are abuse and neglect of in-
fants, health problems as a result
of the delay 'in mothers receiving
prenatal care and disruption of
the efforts of the mothers to com-
pleted their educations or attain
financial stability.
A survey of women receiving
Medicaid assistance for their preg-
nancies and deliveries between


March and December 1993 re-
vealed that 61.7 percent of these
women did not want to become
pregnant, or had planned to be-
come pregnant at a later time.
The authors noted that the to-
tal cost of providing prenatal, ob-
stetrical, newborn and ICU care of
infants unwanted at the time of
conception and their mothers
amounted to $401 million during
the 1992-93 fiscal year.


Truth for so many has be-
come something you shove down
peoples throats or beat them over
the head with, instead of some-
thing you carefully and winsome-
ly present.
I recently received copies of a
publication that took this ap-
proach to the extreme. At one
point, the author referred to cer-
tain Christian leaders as, "senile
or spiritually witless." This batter-
ing ram approach does not even
exclude those who supposedly
are on the same side. The soldiers
of the church fall victim to the
less than friendly fire from those,
of their own ranks. Sometimes it
seems we are even prone to shoot
our walking wounded and put
them out of their misery. Even
within the household of faith,
standing up and speaking up:
these days is a precarious path
through a tricky mine field.
Have we not seen enough of
what this "in your facE" approach
does? Truth telling becomes axe
grinding, faith becomes fury,
righteousness becomes rage. min-
istry becomes business, and com-,
passion becomes cynicism. But It
does not stop with this subtle slip
down the slope of sarcasm.
Protest turns to murder and mur-
der becomes justifiable homicide.
All done in the name of God. But
the downgrade of this drops Into
a dirty ditch called depravity.
Being rabid extremist or em-
barrassed pacifist are not our
only alternatives. We must find
some healthy models of social
protest. Against a backdrop of,
fiery persecution, the Apostle Pe-
ter told first century Christians
to. -Always be ready to give a de-
fense to everyone who asks you a
reason for the hope that is in you,
with meekness and fear" (1 Peter
3:15 NKJV).
These words were written at a
time when the government was
less than friendly towards the
church. It seems to me that what
was said then is still valid in the
last years of the twentieth centu-
ry. For there is ,a disease among
us that could use a strong dose of
meekness, reverence, and re-

spect. We all at times are tempted
to bully others with our. under-
standing of truth. This is often
the result of frustration. It reveals
our uncertainty. It also is a
quick-fix shortcut that shows we
haven't been very convincing in
other ways. This is often because
there, is such a huge hypocritical
chasm between our ideas and our
actions.
Over the log haul, clear
thinking and right living will al-
ways be more convincing than
guns and more explosive than
any bomb. '

I recently tried to preach a
sermon from Luke 15:1-2, follow-
ing up through the stories of Je-
sus found in the rest of the chap-
ter. You will notice that the first
verses of this chapter tell us
about the man from Main Street
coming to Jesus in the form of
Publicans and Sinners to hear his
message. These men were willing.
open, and receptive to the teach-
ings of Jesus, but there were the ('
Pharisees apd Scribes murmur-
ing the fact that Jesus would re-
ceive these and even sit to eat
with them. .,
Presently. In our day. we find
it easy to find fault with so
much-the church, the schools,
the coach, the teachers, the local
politicians, as well as the national
politicians, and on we could go. It
is so easy for us to blame that we
get somewhat like the gal who
showed up, at her friend's door
dressed in black. When asked.
"Did your hUisband die"-she was
on her second-she replied. "No.
my husband didn't die, but he's
been behaving so badly lately, I'm
going back into mourning for my
first husband."
We get caught up with what's
going on in the world and get .our-
selves lost in many ways. The ftin-
ger of blame comes so easy as we
try to cover our tracks. The Mes-
sage from Main Street is that
through Jesus Christ the ulti-
mate in reclamation is available
when all seems just to be a mess.
You and I know that there are
many lives out there torn down
through sin, and there Is a great
need of loving reconciliation.
We see first the lost sheep.
but notice the' shepherd goes im-.
mediately looking for it, never
whining about~what's going on in
the world. And when he finds the
sheep he lifts him up and brings
him home calling for rejoicing. 7
The womhn lost a coin and
grabs a broom to begin to clean,
sweeps until she finds it, then
calls her neighbors and throws a
party of rejoicing.
The lost young man-who be-
came lost by thumbing his nose
at God. parents, and society-
found when he .came home, sim-
ply hoping to'be accepted as a
servant, the open arms of a loving
father ready to receive him. If you
are out there questioning, "What
is the world coming to?" There is
,still a Heavenly Father saying
"Come Home--Come Home."

Revised Draft

Rules Announced::
Revised draft rules to permit
the sale of annuities at financial
institutions-and to make sure
that consumers understand the
risks involved with buying these
non-insured financial products-
were announced recently by State
Comptroller Bob Milligan and In-
surance Commissioner Bill Nel-
son.
The rules will be open for
public comment at a joint Depart-
ment of Banking and Finance/
Department of Insurance work-
shop at 10:00 a.m., July 11 in

oped following a U. S. Supreme

mitting annuities to be sold on
the premises of financial institu-
tions. Annuities contain features
of both insurance and certain
kinds of investments.
Milligan said, "Sale of annui-
ties at financial institutions
points to the changing nature of
the financial services industry. As
historic barriers come down, it is
important to assure an orderly
expansion of commercial activi-
ties into this new financial servic-
es marketplace. We must assure

necessary information to make
informed investments."

Here's the Capitol News Report

FLORIDA TURNS TOUGH ON CRIME THIS WEEK
New state laws aimed at the small hard core of repeat criminals
became effective this week and should make Florida residents safer
from crime, say the legislators who passed them in the last session.
The centerpiece is the Stop Turning Out Prisoners law that requires
inmates to serve at least 85 percent of their terms. Coupled with new
prisons and other crime reform legislation, conservative legislators in
both parties say they expect a dramatic decrease in crime which in the
long run will save the state money.
Not so, say liberal lawmakers and most state bureaucrats, who
quote projections of 'up to $1.9-billion in increased costs in 10 years.
They do not factor in the tougher laws as a deterrent to crime and thus
expect no savings.
Under the ,new laws effective Oct. 1, local authorities will be
required to notify a community of the presence of a sexual predator if a
judge determines he is a threat. They will also alert victims, or their
next of kin, before the release of a suspect for the crimes of murder, sex-.
ual offenses or domestic violence.
It's four strikes and you're out for repeat violent criminals convict-
,,ed of a fourth violent offense and already have served one 'stint in
prison. A mandatory sentence is required on that last offense.
Two more crimes are added to the death penalty list: killing a per-
son under 12 and killing during an aggravated child abuse.
Tougher sentencing guidelines increase the likelihood of prison for
repeat offenses of burglary and-auto theft as well as first conviction for
aggravated stalking.
Physicians and other health care professionals who have been dis-
ciplined for sexual misconduct in another state will be refused a Florida
license.
The tougher laws dovetail into other reforms such as a reduction in
prison "perks" and a return to inmate chain-gangs. They come after a U.
S. Justice Department study showed two-thirds of all convicts are
arrested for new crimes within three years after their release from
prison. Another federal study found that convicts who worked in prison
1i were less likely to commit crimes after their release and were much
more likely to become gainfully employed.
WELFARE BABY LAW DELAYED: A snafu in the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Services has delayed enforcement of a Florida
law that will cut or eliminate benefits for additional children for single
mothers already on welfare.
,State Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Spring Hill, said a delay of about
three months is expected before the bill she sponsored is implemented
because HRS officials failed to obtain necessary waivers under a feder-
al rule.
A similar bill has been passed in the U. S. House of Representatives
and defeated in the Senate. Both Houses are now working on a compro-
mise.
I HRS secretary Ed Feaver said he had not secured a waiver because
he was told likely congressional reforms would complicate the situa-
tion, but Friday he told his staff to apply for one immediately. "This is
an act of the Legislature. It doesn't matter what we think," he said.
Sen. Brown-Waite said the bill was designed to encourage single
mothers to not have more children and to participate in the state's pro-
gram to train them for jobs.
GULF DRILLING OK'D: The U. S. Interior Department has issued
a permit for Chevron to drill another exploratory well seeking natural
gas off the Florida Panhandle 26 miles south of Pensacola in the Gulf of
Mexico.
The permit was issued over the objections of Gov. Lawton Chiles
and environmentalists who have called for a ban on drilling within 100
miles of the Florida coast.
The Interior Department said the drilling will leave the environment
unharmed.
NET BAN UPS FISH PRICES: North Florida fish retailers say that
three months after the statewide net ban most prices for fish are up and
'freshness has gone down.
Price increases ranged from 30 cents to $1 a pounds according to
one survey, and much of the fish sold in Florida have come from the
Carolinas and Alabama.
Shrimp prices have not gone up due to a bountiful-harvest and the
fact they are caught in mesh-trawls not nets like mullet which are now
in short supply.
Meanwhile, more than 1,100 pounds of fresh water game fish caught
Illegally for sale have been confiscated and the Game and Fish
Commission has issued citations to 27 people in Leon, Gadsden,
Wakulla and Alachua counties. The fish were caught on lakes and rivers
for buyers who placed "orders," officials said.

ROUND-UP


by Jack Harper


Thank God, 0. J.



In Florida Means|



"Orange Juice,,..


Whatever Their Decision, The Jury

Is Doing Its Duty Under The System

It's good to realize in the hullabaloo of the 0. J. Simpson murder
case in Los Angeles that in Florida and most of the 50 states (including
California) 0. J. still means orange juice.
It's fortunate because the trial and the verdict that is expected this
week could polarize the races in the U. S. when progress is being made
to bring us all together.,damage the justice system, affect the chances
of presidential candidates and even influence the drive for a third polit-
ical party.
None of that is likely to happen, of course, because it is mostly a
Los Angeles phenomenon. The rest of the country is going to take it in
stride-no matter which way the verdict goes-then go back to everyday
living in the real world.
One California writer is predicting the Simpson jury of nine blacks,
two whites and an Hispanic, are going to find 0. J. guilty as charged,
thus setting up a scenario of country-wide trust for blacks "doing the
right thing" that will lead to Gen. Colin Powell running on a third party
ticket and being elected president.
Those eight black women on the jury could pull it off. This murder,
after all, really is a classic spouse abuse case and women pretty well
know when men are lying to them.
But don't bet any money on it. It's more likely to be a hungjury with
those voting for a conviction holding out
I No matter what verdict, those of us black and white who-have nor-
mal relations will be especially polite to each other when it comes in.
The sensational Simpson trial has been a good civics lesson for
most Americans because it has shown the average citizen what goes on
in the court system. It could result in some needed reforms in the selec-
tion of, a jury to prevent big-money lawyers from stacking it in their
clients' favor.
It could even be a benchmark in racial relations if that jury in spite
of everything does the right thing. However they vote, they shojild not
be blamed for their decision. They're doing their duty under the system
and deserve thanks for it.
The trial has been a Hollywood-Los Angeles phenomenon and the
country wil get over it.
Thank God, 0. J. does mean Orange Juice to most of us.

It's dazzling...It's slick...It's
MERCURY....and it can kill! The
Office of Emergency and Remedi-
al Response a91d American Asso-
ciation of Poison Control Centers
is working with state poison cen-
ters to warn the public of the
dangers of mercury. Cases show
that many children and teens
across the country have become
contaminated when exposed to
mercury, by not knowing how the
substance should be managed.
Mercury is, the silvery sub-
stance found in thermometers
and is even used. in many school
laboratories. Under the, proper
use and containment, this sub-
stance does not cause harm to in-
dividuals. When the substance is
rubbed on the, skin or its fumes.
inhaled, serious effects can oc-
cur.
.Mercury is hard to resist be-
cause the "quick silver" motion is
dazzling, but the Florida Poison
Information Center advises indi-


viduals to avoid touching it, and
NEVER smell it, heat it, put it in
your mouth, vacuum it up or run
contaminated clothes through the
dryer. Mercury vapors can cause
coughing, shortness of breath,
chest pain, vomiting, diarrhea, fe-
ver, mouth sores, kidney prob-
lems, loose teeth, impaired judge-
ment, memory loss, sleepless-
ness, and even death.. -
Should an individual find
mercury unicontained, call the
Florida Poison Information Cen-
ter. The center can advise, proper
cleaning methods to dispose of
the mercury and can determine if
the Individual may: need medical
attention. The poison center is
open 24-hours a day, seven days
a week. Calls are answered by
specially trained nurses, pharma-
cists, toxicology fellows, and on-
call board certified toxicologists.
