PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2; 1995


County, City, Mexico Beach Assured of CleanIUp Financing


Bill Nelson

Inspects Area,

Promises Help
Gulf County and Mexico
Beach drew the personal atten-
tion of state officials last Thurs-
day afternoon, when Florida's In-
surance Commissioner Bill
Nelson paid an, inspection visit to
the beach communities to assess
damage from Hurricane Opal and
6) ascertain the manner in which
state and federal aid was flowing'
into the area.
Meeting first at Mexico Beach
with officials in that hard-hit
community just west of Port St.
Joe, he toured the substantial
damage areas, along with their
city officials, and later conferred
with them for a short while.
He later stopped at Port St.
SJoe for a conference with county
and city disaster officials. About
20 emergency management,
building and public works offi-
cials, as well as several insurance
agents: were on hand to confer'
with Nelson and hear what he
had to say first hand about the
role the State of Florida was going
to play in recovery and expediting
future Insurance coverage and
settling of claims.
Nelson remarked briefly on
his assessment of the damage,
saying the same devastating tidal'
surge and beach erosion was ex-
perienced from Cape San Blas. to
Pensacola. "All of the waterfront
property on the east side of the
storm's eye had severe damage.
Property to the west of the eye
had minimal damage. It is just
like it had a wall built between it
and the area west of a line near
Pensacola," he said.
Nelson reported storm tides
S were about the 'safne-8-to I10 -
Sfeet-all along the Panhandle.
PROMISES STATE AID
Nelson told the officials they
can count on the state to partici-
pate in clean-up expenses over
what FEMA [a federal government
agency] will fund. '"You can ex-
pect to receive the normal 12 1/
2% to match your local 12 1/2%
to go with the FEMA money," Nel-
son said.
"We, were wondering about
and counting on that money to
fund our clean-up needs," Larry
Wells, Gulfs Emergency Manage-
ment director, remarked. "We are
trying now to line up a firm or
firms to do the job of clean-up as
soon as we are assured we will
have the money to pay them
with."
The Commissioner also stat-,
ed that his department had made
18 arrests of fraudulent or unli-
censed insurance adjusters in the
Panhandle and publicised the
fact, scaring off a number of oth-
ers. "Unscrupulous public adjust-
ers are also at work," he warned, .
"offering to inflate damage assess-
ment for a portion of the money
recovered."
Nelson explained that Florida
law provides for 'public' adjusters
; who operate on a basis of charg-

ing the property owner. a fee for
their services. The adjusters hired
by insurance firms to assess
damage operate at no fee to the
property owner," he explained'.
"The law allows for the public ad-
justers for the property owners
who do not wish to wait for their
turn to get the free service."
\Nelson reported insurance
firms operating in the Panhandle
had a number of adjusters oper-
ating in the,.damage area.
FLOO6INSURAICE
Port St. Joe city attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish questioned the Com-
missioner about 'what recourse
those people had who had no
flood insurance. "I'm not talking
about those who suffered damage
and can pay for their repairs 'if
necessa-y. I'm talking about that
little guy who has worked on his
modest home himself for several
years to build it, only to see it all
swept away and is not covered by
insurance,", he said.
Nelson replied they are eligi-
ble for FEMA assistance and if
they have not applied for assis-
tance they should do so as soon
as possible.
He gave a telephone number
to call for assistance which is
easy to' remember; 1-800-22-
STORM.
Frank Healy, Port St Joe's
public works superintendent,
said, "Our major damage in the
city came from storm tidal surge.
The storm tide came up into our
drainage system, bringing debris
with it and when the water level
began to lower, the debris re-'
mained, stopping up our drain
system and causing much flood-
ing in low lying areas."-
Nelson, said that was a com-

Several Ceremonies Being


Planned For
In commemoration of Veterans
Day next Saturday, November 1 1,
several events are being planned
within the county to recognize the
sacrifices made by armed forces of
-the Unriltd States throughout his-
tory.
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10
Each year schools within the
county have special celebrations to
highlight the achievements of vet-,
erans. This'year Port St. Joe High
School will have its fourth annual-
Veterans Appreciation Day pro-
gram on Friday, November 10, in
the R. Marion Craig Coliseum.
Lieutenant Colonel Patricia
White, a former Gulf County stu-
dent and teacher, will be the guest
speaker. Veterans who will attend
the ceremony are urged to call the-
Gulf County School Board office at
229-8256, so that a seat may be
reserved for you. The hour long,
ceremony will begin at 9:00 a.m.
Veterans and their guests will be
honored afterwards in the Student
Activities Room where refresh-
ments will be served.
Wewahitchka Elementary
School will also honor veterans of
the area at 10:00 CST at Gator
Field in Wewahitchka.
A service will also be conduct-
ed at 10:00 a.m. EST at the Gulf
County Courthouse to honor vet-
erans. Guest speaker will be
ABCM-USN Retired Joe Worley.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11
The Veterans of Foreign' Wars
is also planning a celebration to


Veterans Day
mark Veterans Day on Saturday,
Nov. I i, at the John C. Gainous
VFW Post 10069 on Trout Avenue
in Highland View. The celebration
will be held -from 12:00 6:00
p.m..' with free food and sodas.-
pony rides and games for the kids.


1 The Gulf County Commission
will hold a public workshop
Thursday,. November 2, at 6:00
p.m. with representatives of vari-
ous state and federal agencies,
local governmental entities and
residents impacted by Hurricane
Opal.
At the board's last meeting,
Commissioner Billy Traylor recom-
mended the board try to set up the
workshop to enable the county
and effected residents to receive
first-hand information, and
exchange, ideas on such things as
beach -renourishment programs,
debris pickup. and funding.
Representatives" from the
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP), Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs (DCA),
and Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) have
said they wold be at the meeting to
answer any questions for the
board.
/ The commissioners are partic-
ularly interested In what can be
done to renourish areas in St. Joe
Beach, Cape San Bias, and Indian
Pass. Those areas bore the brunt
of coastal erosion from Opal's hur-
ricane force winds pushing a
storm surge which .completely lev-
eled many of the sand dunes that
had provided a first line of defense
against hurricanes and :winter
storms.
"Another storm could create
catastrophic damage to our coast-
line," Commissioner Warren yea--
ger told the board as they
discussed possible renourishment
ideas.
The board- s 'also'co-n&rriFd
about the erosion problem near


the Stump Hole area of the cape,
where over 3,000 feet of county
road was washed .away and, the
waters of the Gulf of Mexico carved
their path into St. Joseph's Bay.
They are worried that another
storm might create a permanent
channel between, the two and
destroy the ecological balance of
the bay, which would also effec-
tively make the end of the penin-
sula into an island.
Reconstruction Center
Chief Administrator Don
Butler told The Star that FEMA
would be setting up and staffing a
Reconstruction Center in Gulf
County on November 13 and 14,
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Gulf
County Building Department.
FEMA will continue to man
the center on Tuesdays and Thurs-
days during normal building
department hours through
December 8th..
Design professionals and
National Flood Insurance Program
(NFIP) specialists will be provided
at no cost to assist with rebuilding
questions and procedures.
Department of Environmental
Protection representatives will also
set up from 8 a.m. to noon on
Tuesday and Thursdays in the
Gulf County Building Department
until the majority of Hurricane
Opal permit work is completed.
Butler said county property'
owners should be able to get their
questions answered locally, rang-
ing from the availability of tempo-
rary housing daid flood insurance,
to rebuilding permit specifications.


Trammell Won't Seek Office In Congress

Takes Himself Out Of The Race Which Will Be Held Next Year
State Representative Robert Trammell put the brakes on
the rumor gathering speed that he would be a candidate to re-
place U. S. Rep. Pete Peterson in the Congressional election
coming up next year with a short telephone call to The Star
Monday morning.
Trammell said he and his wife had taken a trip to Wash-
ington, D.C. to look over the situation recently and have come
S' to the conclusion that he would have to move to Washington
to .effectively serve as Congressman from District 2. "Washing-
"o L' i. ton isn't northFlorida and the political climate there now isn't
!l -, t 7..~ jr, conducive to a very pleasant life. It's just so much better in
this part of Florida, my family wouldn't be happy anywhere
'. ,else," Trammell said.
Since Peterson announced-along with several other Dem-
ocratic Congressmen-that he was stepping down, several
months ago, Trammell's name has been in the rumor mill as a
.leading candidate to succeed him to the post. Trammell, him-
4,. .self, was seriously considering the post as recently as a few
H weeks ago. But he said that after giving the matter serious
consideration and making the trip to Washington, he has opt-
ed to remain "State Representative to this section of Florida,
so I can remain at home and my family will be happier."
Trammell represents District 7 in the Legislature, which
consists of Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson and Liberty Counties and
REP. ROBERT TRAMMELL parts of Bay, Gadsden, Leon and Walton Counties.


It Was Spooks


Night Out


Kids "Trick or Treat" on Reid Avenue
It would be hard to say, ,numerically, just how many kids
turned out Tuesday evening for the Hallowe'en parade and Trick
or Treat activity on Reid Avenue, but it would be easy to say the
street was packed with wall-to-wall kids in scary costumes. -
The parade began at 6:00 p.m. and the Trick or Treat activity
immediately after the kids had paraded from First to Fifth
Street, where the Hallowe'en activities were held. An hour and a
half later, there were still swarms of kids in spooky garb holding
out their bags and shouting, '.Trick or Treat!"
Port St. Joe merchants lined botl sides of the parade area
with booths where they passed out candy and favors to all com-
ers during the evening. The event was sponsored and planned by
the Merchants Association to give the small kids an opportunity
to celebrate Hallowe'en without the dangers of door-to-door and
street-by-street visits. The Police Department blocked off the
street and kept all traffic off for the celebration period.
In the photos at right, Mrs. Steve Richardson is shown pass-
ing out treats to a group of children while County Judge Bob
[King Arthur] Moore, complete in costume, Joins in the festivi-
ties. Judge Moore remarked, "I've been promoted" to passers-by.
One grandparent remarked, 'This is a good thing you people do!"

THE STAR

Whose Fault?
THE STATE OF Florida has turned out to be fink, as far as
the fishermen of Florida, are concerned. Most of them have good
reason to feel that way while no doubt a few earned the shame-
ful treatment through conscious efforts to gerry-mander their
-nets the state was to buy, in order to get more for them. Of
course nobody has a good reason to cheat on any deal, whether
the terms were forced pr them or were agreed to voluntarily.
There is probably no shortage of fishermen who feel (rightful-,
ly so] that the terms of the net buy back, take it or leave it, deal'
was forced upon them. We don't believe the state pf Fl6rida
should labor :under. the mis-apprehension that this was an
agreeable trade on the fishermen's part, regardless of the prom-
ised payment or lack of.
THE STATE OF Florida acted like the displaced fishermen
should be happy over the arrangement and be grateful for what-
ever crumbs Florida government threw their way under the guise
of "helping" them.The Department of Labor made' some grandi-
ose promises [or so they thought] on just what the state would
do and the generous amount of compensation they would make
for denying the fishermen the use of the necessary tools to ply
their trade. .
The vouchers they handed out were little enough, were they
to fulfill the promised -amount with a check later on. But, it
didn't work that way. Some few fishermen did take advantage of
the situation, and all fishermen got punished for it. The state of
Florlda should have known there would, be a few unscrupulous
individuals who would try to get more than the going amount.
There always is.
CHECKS OF LESS THAN one third the promised amount is
just pure thievery'on the part of the Department of Labor. The
Department had a man on site When the,.nets were loaded up..
He should have detected the attempts at fraud on the spot or
else he should not have been in the position of inspector. We feel
the state left itself wide open to any possible chicanery and any
cheating which might have been done was the state's own fault.
But, where is the fault when someone,, has been forced to
abandon the use of his manner of making a living? The state
wasn't exactly "Santa Claus" in this deal to begin with. We aren't
suggesting the state pay up just any old amount in order to sat-
isfy the fishermen but we are suggesting the state should stand
by its promises made to honest, hard-working men with families
to support. Refusing to pay anything on a voucher promising
$22,095, as happened in at least one incidence, isjust plain tak-
ing advantage of people who can't help themselves.
Don't forget, the fishermen didn't ask for this situation.


Restoration
WATER HAS BEEN restored to the Cape, roads are being
put back into service and the repairs to damaged buildings is
progressing at a tremendous pace following Hurricane Opal, due
to the tremendous out-pour of efforts by individual citizens and
the cooperation of our several local governments. This clean-up
operation and putting everything back into place is going- at a
fast pace, with hardly anybody dragging their feet.
If anybody is dragging their feet, it is the federal and state
governments, with their well-intentioned promises of aid, but,
even that is tob early to tell. Government is cumbersome and
moves slow. Obviously, assistance, other than local participa-
tion, has been mostly an inspection tour, forms to fill out, hot-
line telephone numbers handed out and promises made as to
just what kinds of assistance individuals can expect from this or
that agency. No real cash has changed hands, this far.
WE'RE ELATED AT the number of people who have dug in
to dig out. We're pleased at the neighborliness which has been
displayed by the people of this vicinity in people helping their
friends, acquaintances, their neighbors. It's sort of a "Momma, I
can do it myself' type thing.
Of course, we can't do it ourself without a lot of sacrifice on
somebody's part, but folks are not waiting on somebody to come
perform the task of getting things in shape to proceed with our
lives after a short interruption. We are expecting people to live
up to their promises both for aid and for the assistance we have
all paid for, regularly! We're due at least part of that monetary
assistance.
HURRICANES DON'T COME by all that often and when they
do, we expect to be treated as fair as anybody else, but don't ex-
pect us to sit idly by twiddling our thumbs waiting for someone
else to put our lives back into place. We have to get on with our
lives, so Just don't punish us for putting some things back to-
gether on our own while waiting for assistance.

Chest High, Inside


this play, counting games and
practice. 10 million times. J. S.
was going to feed me the ball
chest high on the inside corner of
second base. He never missed.
Never! I could count on him. If it
was too far in front of the bag, we
failed to get both runners. If it
was behind me and I had to, wait
on It or reach back-the six foot-
three inch. two hundred-forty
pound runner broke my back,
both legs and kicked me into the
middle of left field.....
I flew across the base, glove
already chest high, my left foot
barely scraping the Inside corner,
the toss from J. S. was perfect, I
swung my right leg over and
threw on the---I didn't have the
ball! I don't know what happened,
but I managed at a key moment
to lay it on the ground. I glanced
instinctively at John. I'll never
forget the shrug of his shoulders
and the I-can't-believe-you-didn't-
turn-that-one look! He picked up
'the ball, tossed it back to the,
pitcher and said "K. C., leave it to
you to mess up a great day!"
He was honest to a fault.
I met J. S. the first day of my
college life. He was from Atlanta. I
was from way out yonder close to
where Stonewall Street runs into
the Como Road. I don't know if
you remember your first night
away from home in unfamiliar,
enemy territory-I thought I was
going to die! If John hadn't been
there I think I would havel We
fought. the college wars side, by
side.


He loaded me into his 1956
black and white Chevy and took
me to his house on Woodward
Way. It was my first trip to Atlan-
ta. I spent the entire weekend
looking up-the buildings were
taller than trees! I took him to the
Intersection of Stonewall and
Como-he spent the weekend
looking down-he didn't want to
step in anything!
The fall day in 1967 when my
girlfriend of five years sent me the
dreaded get-lost -you-sucker-it's-
over letter, J. S. was there to con-
sole me, to lift my spirits. to help
me "make it through." "K. C., I
never did understand what a
nice, sensitive, wonderful, abso-
lutely beautiful, rich girl like that
saw in you anyway." We headed
off down to the gym to take some
cuts at a tennis ball.
The years have not dimin-
ished otur friendship. He made
the long trip back to the farm for
my wedding. He loves Cathy and
the boys-and you ought to meet
his Paulee and Katherinel We
have visited a few times over the
years, and yes, we've been to a
ball game or two ..:r. or twenty.
He called me a couple of
weeks ago. "K. C., I know It's a
long drive for just one night, but
I've got you a ticket to the second
game of the World Series .... .
What an'unbelievable special
night for an old boy from down at
the end of Stonewall extended
"You know J. S., it doesn't get
any better. I just wish the boys


could be here." He understood.
Baseball is not a game at my
house. It's a way of life My Fa-
ther rolled in off of that truck
about 'dark and I was waiting
with a bat in one hand-a ball in
the other. That tradition lives on
through my sons.
I didn't bother to thank J. S.
Words weren't necessary. On the
trip home I remembered an old
baseball axiom-you've got an ex-
tra World Series ticket, you've got
a million friends. He could -have
asked anyone! Good ole John.
The invitaUon meant more than
the game Of course, I am going
to return the favor. I'm getting
him a ticket to the Bayou George
Bog In.
i J. S. called again last week.
"K. C., I've worked out a couple of
extra tickets to game six, I
thought the boys ....." People,
John Stewart made it possible-
he allowed me the privilege of
placing a World Series Ucket into
the eager, almost unbelieving
hands of my two sons.
October 28, 1995-another
perfect day! The weather was
great, the crowd was great, Tom-.

Don't Spit Any Tobacco Juice In My Car's "Ash Receiver"


SOME PEOPLE DON'T allow
other people to smoke while rid-
ing in their automobile. I don't
like people to smoke in my car,
but I have just never gone to the
extreme of telling my passengers
that the practice is forbidden'
while inside the car.
I have had very few smokers
to ride in my automobiles over
the years. Most of those were pas-
sengers in the days when smok-
ing wasn't quite the anathema it
is today.
I've had a few tobacco chew-
ers ride with me on occasion, but
they usually spit out the window,
leaving a brown stain running
down the side. It was a gentle-
man's agreement that they not
spit in my "ash receiver".
Some-my wife included-
don't like for people to smoke in
her car because it hurts her eyes.
I don't know if she has consid-
ered the matter to its length of
leaving a foul odor in the car, or
not She just knows the smoke,

hurts her eyes and, to lier, that is,
reason enough for her to hang
out the "No Smoking" sign for
people riding In her car.
It doesn't matter that anoth-
er, besides her, cannot get in her,
car for the books, magazines.
yard rakes, shovels, clippers, pots
of flowers and shrubs and vari-
ous other objects she is carrying
inside. Come to think of it, that is.
probably the most effective deter-
rent against smoking in her car
she could have. If you can't get in
it, it's a lead pipe cinch you can't
smoke in it!
WHAT BROUGHT this on


was an article I read in the paper
the other day,, which gave the
news that so many folks are pro-
hibiting the activity in their cars
that .some iiantufacturers are
making an "ash receiver" optional
equipment in their cars.
One manufacturer made a.
splash this year by introducing a"
model without an "ash receiver"
or a cigar lighter included in the
dash ensemble.
Well, I would like to know
just where the owners of those
cars are going, to plug in their
cordless telephones? Where are
they going to plug in their acces-


sory trouble :lights? Or lap-top
computers ... or electric razors?
This decision to exclude "ash
receivers"n may be a popular Item
but the matter of doing away with
the cigar lighters is going to have'
some- far-reaching effects. There,
will also be no receptacle to plug
in the television sets to keep the
little rug-rats quiet on long trips.

SMY CAR ISN'T all that old,
but it still has an "ash receiver"
inside. It is a; fancy gadget. It has'
two little fingers which spring out
when the "ash receiver" is' pulled'
out from the dash to make two
beverage holders.
There is everything ni 'that
"ash receiver" but ashes from a
cigar or cigarette. There are a
- number of coins of all denomina-
tions, gem clips, chewing gum
wrappers, rubber bands, wash-
ers, rifle cartridges, the car's ci-
gar lighter and anything else
which will fit inside.


:,,One time my::wife was riding
with me in my car and she
brought along her cup of coffee.
Coffee drinkers, to me, are just as
bad as cigarette smokers. The lin-
geri-ng'odor left by their stale cup
of coffee is every bit as bad as cig-
arette odors; different, but cer-
tainly no more pleasant.
My wife set her cup of coffee
in the beverage container, inside
the '"ash receiver" and promptly
proceeded to knock it over.
.'"That's almost as bad as a
wad of tobacco spit in the "ash re-
ceiver"; any old dayl
That little episode earned a
vote from me to eliminate "ash re-
ceivers" from cars.

:DO YOU REMEMBER when
'ash receivers" were, first placed
in automobiles? It's been a long
time ago. It was prior to the elimi-
nation of running boards. Do you
remember those? They were
"standard" on all cars several.


years ago. Now, only people with
high standing pick-up trucks or
who have trouble getting into an
unusually high vehicle,. have
them installed. Even then, they
are not as utilitarian as the fea-
tures on cars before air conditibn-
ing, automatic transmission ,and
stereo radios.
A person could step up on-
the running board, grab a death
grip on the door post [if the win-
dow was down, which it usually
was] and be a passenger on the
outside of the car.
Come to think of it, I suppose
it was all right for these passen-
gers to smoke if they wanted to.
The fumes would all be outside.
I don't look for the running
board to come back as a standard
item on automobiles, even though
the "ash receiver" Is vanishing
with the clincher tire. Automobile
manufacturers will probably
come up with the "designated
seat" for smokers first..

'The people of Lynn Haven, for in-
stance, didn't have flood insu-
rance because they were out of

backed up in their systems, caus-
ing flooding in several homes not
covered by the protective insu-

he remarked.
As .the conference wound

concerns from officials and prom-

about them. Officials were also

Rough Sailing
This is all that remains of the 67' shrimp
boat, Lucky Lady owned by Ralph Richard of
Apalachicola. The boat ran onto a shoal Fri-
day, October 20, which wasn't there before


Hurricane Opal visited the area. In
course of a week, wave action brok
boat up and washed it ashore over a
mile stretch of beach in the Cape Sai
area. Gulf County clean-up crews, wc
on storm debris, removed the remains
the beach.


Booth Returns
to the States
S-Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class
-rv Grady L. Booth recently returned'
to Norfolk, Virginia after complete.
i' ing a six-month overseas deploy-
meiit aboard the' guided missile
destroyer USS Arleigh Burke,
which included duty in the Adri-
atic Sea near Bosnia. ,
Booth is one of; 321 sailors
aboard the destroyer who, com-
pleted the 17,000-miile voyage.
Booth's ship was part'of the 11-
ship USS Theodore Roosevelt Bat-
Stlie Group, which included more
than 70 tactical aircraft, and
ships and. submarines armed,
with Tomahawk cruise missiles.
While in the Adriatic Sea, Booth
,and fellow crew members sup-
ported the ongoing efforts of
NATO and U.N. forces by keeping
track of all aircraft flying over the
former Yugoslavian republic and
the Adriatic Sea. Using its sophis-
,' ticated air tracking radar, Booth's
ship ensured no unauthorized
aircraft flew near the multi-
national force in the Adriatic.
n the Booth's ship also helped enforce
the U.N. embargo by Intercepting
e the ships in the Adriatic Sea. Booth's
a five ship queried more than 60 ships
n Bias and boarded one ship suspected
working of smuggling arms and weapons
from related materials to the area.
Also during the deployment.


Booth participated in several mul-
ti-national exercises With forces
from Belgium, France, Germany,
Great Britain, Portugal, Spain
and Turkey. During the exercises,
Booth and fellow sailors conduct-
ed anti-air, anti-submarine, and
electronic warfare training as well
as land operations.
While spending 135 days at
sea, Booth also visited France,
Gibraltar, Greece, Italy, Sicily,
Spain and Turkey. In Toulon,
France, sailors from Booth's ship
volunteered their free time to re-
pair a playground ata. local chil-
dren's home.
Booth's involvement in the
deployment is an example of how
U. S. men and women are serving
In the Navy and Marine Corps
around the world in support of U.
S. interests. These highly trained
naval forces provide a unique for-
ward presence and crisis-
response option, which can be
withdrawn quickly when no long-
er needed.
The 1983 graduate of Pace
High School joined the Navy in
September,. 1990. He is the son of
Grady L. and Lucretia L. Booth of
Wewahitchka, and his wife. Paula
is the daughter of Ben Gay of Port
St. Joe.

SNovember--National Home Care Month
In the photo above, Tonya Lemons, Office Manager and Claudia Giesecke, Administrator, from NHC
HomeCare look on as Mayor Frank Pate signs a proclamation dedicating November as National Home
Care Month.. The theme of this year's celebration, "Caring Through The Generations", emphasizes
home care's unique contributions as the "oldest system of health care delivery". Mrs. Giesecke stated,
"During this special month, we will recognize our talented home* care team and address our nation's
widespread need and preference for home care services.


Holidays Are Prime mFor Con Artists


Consumers need to be espe-
clally aware of charitable fraud
during the holidays or when nat-
ural disasters or other crises
occur, according to the American
Association of Retired Persons
(AARP). State agencies and law
enforcement officials report that
the number of misleading or
fraudulent pitches by representa-
tives of so-called "charitable"
organizations generally Increases
during the period from Thanks-
giving to New Year's Day. And dis-
asters such as the recent hurri-
canes and the Oklahoma City
bombing attract the worst kind of
con artists.
'"When you read or hear an
emotional appeal for a charity
during the holidays or when a
tragedy strikes, you may be more
likely to give without thinking,"
says Robert L. Jenkins of Plant
City. AARP State Director for
SFlorida. "Unfgrtunately;" unless
you are vigila., you.tnay be-cona-
tributing to ag roup that Is mis-
representing Its fund-raising
activities or soliciting for a phony
cause."
To mark National Consumer's
Week (October 22-28). AARP has
some suggestions to help you
avoid becoming a victim of chart-
table fraud:
; 1. Never respond to an emo-
tional appeal from a caller who is
seeking funds to help victims of
illness, abuse, or disaster. Always
demand that such callers provide
you with written Information
before you consider ghiing.
2. Ask that printed informa-
tion about the charity; including
its name, address and phone
number; a statement of how and
where donated funds will be used:
and the charity's state registra-


tlon number (where applicable):
be mailed to you.
3. Ask what percentage of the
money you give will be used for a
charitable purpose and how
much will be kept by the fund-
raiser.
4. Never send cash to a char-
ity or give out your credit card or
bank account number over the
phone. Instead, if you wish to
contribute, write a check and note
on it what the donation is for.
If you have questions about a
charitable solicitation you receive
over the phone, by mali or In per-
son-or if you suspect that a
solicitation is fraudulent-con-
tact:

County Crews Get Busy On


Cleaning Opal'sDebris


The Wewahitchka Gators suf-
fered their first district loss of the
season Friday night against
Liberty County. 34-0. The Gators
started off a little shaky and never
rebounded.
Liberty County scored with
7:56 left in the first quarter on a
46 yard pass play, set up by a
Gator fumble. The Bulldogs got a
safety on the ensuing kickoff and
went on to a 28-0 halftime lead.
The Gators played much bet-
ter in the second half, but penal-
ties kept them out of the end zone.
Liberty County scored again with
1:30 left in the game for a 34-0
final score.
PLAYOFFS
The Gators put themselves in
the position of having to beat
Apalachicola November 10 to stay
alive in the race for the playoffs,
with the top two teams In the dis-
trict advancing. If Greensboro
defeats Chattahoochee this week
and Carrabelle on the tenth and
Liberty County defeats Carrabelle
this week, it would force a three-
way tie.

County crews began at day-
break Saturday the roadside re-
moval of Hurricane Opal debris.
The crews, using equipment rang-
Ing from uUllty trailers to dump
trucks and front end loaders, re-
moved 325 tons of debris in the
two ten-hour work days.
The Gulf County Road De-
partment, using their dump
trucks, flat beds and a badger
swept through Beacon Hill Satur-
day. A prison crew followed be-
hind clearing away debris too
small for the badger to pick up.
The Gulf County Mosquito Con-
trol Department began the awe-
some duty of debris collection at
the south end of St. Joe Beach.
Their collection of sway cars and
a dump truck made steady
progress throughout the week-
end. Other crews using utility
trailers made their way through-
out the south end of the county
collecting the metal and white
goods that the county recycles.
Sunday, a crew worked its way
south on the Cape, ending near

hasten the clean-up of Hurricane
Opal debris. To date. Gulf County

Sharks



Lose To



Tigers

The Shark defense managed
to silence Jefferson County's can-
non during the first half of their
Class 3A District 2 confrontation
Friday night in Monticello. But,
the state's fourth ranked Class
3A Tigers dried their powder dur-
ing halftime homecoming festivi-
ties, scoring 26 unanswered
points and winning the District 2
title with a 4-0 record over their
district foes.
Three big defensive plays by
the Sharks were instrumental in
keeping the Tigers out of the end
zone in the first half.
J. J. Gainer recovered a Tiger
fumble, ending their first posses-
sion of the game, on the Shark
two yard line thwarting a scoring
opportunity for the Tigers.
Cameron Likely intercepted
two Jefferson County passes on
consecutive Tiger possessions
keeping the pigskin away from
their potent offense.
The Sharks'. only serious
scoring threat of the first half fol-
lowed Likely's second intercep-
tion, returned to Jefferson
County's 38 yard line.
Des Baxter grabbed a Ryan
Yeager pass good for 17 yards to
the Tiger 21 yard line. But, con-
secutive losses on running at-
tempts and a five yard Illegal pro-
cedure penalty forced a 48 yard
field goal attempt from the Tiger
31 yard line. Barry Adkison's kick,
fell short.
Monticello *scored their first
six points in the third quarter
taking over the ball with good
field position on the Shark 40
yard line after a failed fake punt
attempt by St. Joe.

Dove Hunters
Prepare for
Second Phase
Florida's first phase of dove
season for the 1995-96 season is
history but hunters have two
phases to look forward to.
The first phase in the North-
west Region .was September -16-
October 9% The second and third
phases, which are open to all-day
shooting, are November 11-26
and December 9 to January 7. Lt
Stan Kirkland, Public Information
Coordinator for the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission in
Panama City, said there should
be plenty of doves migrating into
northwest Florida during this
time.
"We have a lot of doves here
now that have migrated into the
area and hopefully they'll be here
when the second phase opens,"
Kirkland said. "Almost all of the
peanut fields have been picked,
and those fields, especially the
ones with livestock on them
should provide good shooting."
Other agricultural fields to
look for doves are those where
corn, wheat or millet has been
harvested or planted, he said.
"A big advantage of hunting
during these later two phases is
getting together with friends or
family for an early morning shoot,
leaving the afternoon for other
things," Kirkland said.
The bag limit for doves is 12
daily. Four of. those may be white-
winged doves.

When Teeth

Look Crowded


If you're embarrassed be-
cause some of your teeth look
crowded, it's a condition" you
don't have to endure. Some-
times crowded teeth are a mat-
ter of heredity, a condition
you've had since you were born.
Your teeth may be too large and
your jawbones too small to ac-
commodate them comfortably.
When teeth don't have enough
room, they tend to crowd up
and become overlapped.
The condition may have
been caused by the premature
loss of "baby" teeth. Primary
teeth serve an important pur-
pose by helping to guide the
permanent teeth into proper po-
sition. If some are lost through


decay or accident long before
the replacements are ready to
erupt, this can cause position-
ing problems. That's why space
maintainers are recommended
when primary teeth are lost pre-
maturely.
No matter what the cause
of your crowded teeth, it's
something that you don't have
to endure any longer. It's a con-
dition that can be corrected.
Why not now?

Cameron Likely (21) intercepts his second pass of the evening during the first half of Friday's
game. Rocky Quinn (5) also dives for the ball as the Monticello receiver was out-classed by the
Shark defensive backs.


Jefferson County scored
again early in the fourth quarter
to take a 14-0 lead.
St. Joe's Cameron Likely re-
turned the ensuing kick-off to the
45 yard line. From there, the
Sharks put together a nine play
drive moving the ball down to the
Tiger's seven yard line. Shark
quarterback Ryan Yeager was hit
in the backfield while attempting
to complete a third down pass to
Des Baxter in the end zone and
the pass was intercepted by the
Tigers, ending the Sharks scoring
threat.
Monticello scored twice more
late in the fourth quarter to hand
the Sharks their first District
loss, 26-0.

Brian Jenkins led all rushers

for play-off spots.
The Sharks will travel to
Blountstown Friday night to play
the Tigers at 8:00 p.m., EST. A
St Joe win would keep them in
contention for a spot in the play-
offs while a loss would assure the
Tigers of a runner up position. St.
Joe must defeat Blountstown and

the district.

Dear Counselor:
My son, whom I'll call
Johnny, is in the seventh grade
and has come home from school
with his report card showing D's
and F's. I have tried restriction,
loss of T.V. privileges, and pun-
ished him but nothing seems to
work. What else can I do?
Frustrated
Dear Frustrated:
Sounds like your son is expe-
riencing a problem that is com-
mon to many youth entering mid-
dle school. They are going from a
highly structured classroom, to
classes which require more self-
motivation. I would encourage you
to arrange to meet with your son's
teachers and see if a system can
be arranged where your son keeps
a notebook and has each teacher
sign off on homework every day.
Then, when he gets home, estab-
lish a study time that is very
structured. Before going to bed,
have your son show you all of the
homework so that you can sign
the notebook, indicating that he
completed his work, which he can
show to his teacher. Maybe having
a place by the front door, where he
can put his school work every
night will be helpful so that he
can find it easily and not forget to
take it to school the next morning.
kIeeping good communication


.open with the teachers is the. key
to this working. Be willing to pro-
vide them your home phone num-
I ber and encourage them to call
you if there is a problem or if they
T see improvement.
Setting up a reward system
might be useful, also. For in-
s "stance, if Johnny turns his com-
pleted homework in foria week, he
can earn a special dinner or an
extra hour of T.V.- whatever can
motivaLte him.
If Johnrny still brings home
poor grades, maybe it would be
wise to check with the ,school
counselor and see if testing may
'be appropriate.
Perhaps adding more struc-
ture to your son's schooling may
help make the transition from ele-
mentary to middle school more
successful.
,Sincerely,
Scott Johnson, M.S. Outreach

Board of Regents


Going Overboard


On Lombardi Remarks

UF President Gave An Educator's
Solution to Problem, Not A Politician's
LET'S NOT GAG OUR UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS
Florida may have a kindergarten through 12th grade fiasco in its edu-
cation system, but our colleges and universities, both public and private,
have a record of excellence throughout the U. S. and the world. So let's
stop trying to gag our university presidents.
The messy dressing down University of Florida President John
Lombardi got last week from Board of Regents Chairman James Heekin,
an Orlando lawyer, is definitely not the direction sensible Floridlans want
to go.
Lombardi, a 5-year president at the UF and not a native Floridian, got
in trouble it appears with his latest idea, a new way to fund student cred-
it hours that would encourage students to complete their studies in four
years as some members of the Florida Legislature want.
Heekin and other regents were upset because the plan got to state
legislators before it was cleared by the Board of Regents. Lombardi said
his aides released it prematurely and he apologized to Heekin for it .
that was after Heekin sent his letter advising Lombardi he would be glad
to recommend him for a job elsewhere because he didn't seem to want to
work as a team.
When the story hit the news media, Heekin said he wasn't trying to
gag Lombardi. Yeah. Then why did the usually outspoken UF president
tell reporters all week he had no comment? What is even worse, why did
Lombardi refuse to answer a professor at an assembly of the College of
Liberal Arts and Science who asked about the idea of performance-based
pay raises for senior faculty members. Lombardi said his discussion
would have to be about "mechanisms," not ideas.
"I don't want to call it an idea. We're not allowed to do that," Lombardi
said.
It's a tragic day in Florida history when the president of one of our
universities has to code-talk an idea for political correctness.
One thing this old reporter learned as a buck-toothed freshman from
Palatka at the University of Florida way back in 1940 was that it is a rare
privilege and opportunity to be tutored and led by the high class of pres-
idents my old school has attracted throughout the years.
Me and several other Florida boys (there were no girls at UF back
then) hitched a ride up town with then UF president John J. Tigart. I
asked him if he was a book salesman or something. He said no he was
the president of the university and told us about the deadly flu epidemic
that hit the troops in World War I.
My best story of the first University president I knew personally was
the time one poor-boy Gator student was arrested by Gainesville police
for stealing a duck out of the pond in front of John J.'s home. John J.
asked him what he did with his pet duck. "I ate it," said the poor Gator.
Tigart refused to press charges.
This old reporter has some concern about the trend in Florida's uni-
versity system now to appoint state insiders to the top university posts.
Specifically, former Rep. Sandy D'Alemberte, president of Florida State
University, and former Education Commissioner and lawmaker Betty
Cas: ,r,,president of the University of South Florida.
Both have good credentials, but this old buck-toothed Florida fresh-
man from Palatka isn't sure if they are the best in the country. We don't
need a snobby, elite Good Old Florida club of educators. We need the best
we can attract from everywhere.
It's very likely we haven't heard the last of the Lombardi Heekin affair.
The Florida Legislature is still going to be interested in quality education
reform ideas next year and-as they should-they'll be looking to educa-
tors like Lombardi for them. .
Maybe we should review the appointive Board of Regent system to see
If it really' works. At least, let's reorganize it enough to prevent another
attempt to gag a university president.
ADQFTTHE CHILDREN AND CAGE SEXUAL PREDATORS
,- *: : Two of the best ideas that the Florida Legislature and the Cabinet will
be considering next year to slash the rising teen pregnancy rate are to
enforce present laws against sexual predators on children and promote
adoption as a positive choice for unmarried mothers.
There are those with an agenda who want to stress more effective sex
education earlier in schools, including the use of contraceptives, but
enforcement of statutory rape against an adult having sexual intercourse
with a minor and simple adoption are much more do-able.
A state council study showed that adult men fathered nearly three-
fourths of all births among high school girls, but the laws on the books
are seldom enforced and need revamping. Judges, police and legislators,
get cracking on that please.
The state could also launch an advertising campaign to educate the
public, professionals in the field, and birth mothers on adoption as a pos-
itive choice and pass new laws even requiring abortion and family plan-
ning clinics to promote adoptions. Taxpayers wouldn't balk on that.
The study shows more and more unwed teenagers are getting preg-
nant in Florida now and calls for an extensive statewide effort to educate
parents and the children on the problem. The trouble with that is schools'
are overburdened with society's problems and need about as much help-
as the pregnant teenagers. .


Here's the Capitol News Report
FLORIDA GEARING UP FOR HISTORIC SESSION
Florida legislators are gearing up for what may be the most challeng-
ing session this century if the GOP led Congress pulls off the largest shift
of power since the New Deal. This time states will get back many respon-
sibilities taken by the federal government, perhaps with less money.
"It's a prescription for fiscal disaster for Florida," said Gov. Lawton
Chiles who fears Congress wilU scale back federal funding for programs.
"It's an opportunity," said state Senate President Jim Scott who feels a
government closer to the people can do more with less money.
With details as yet unknown, Congress wants to shift control back to

the states in welfare, Medicaid. environmental policy, transportation and,
other programs.
Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay is leading a state task force of community
leaders and agency heads to cope with the expected changes composed
while, Scott has held hearings on Medicaid. welfare and other issues.
Scott has also insisted the Senate staff and members keep updated on
legislation in Washington. ,
Chiles postponed special sessions he once threatened on health
insurance and education until Congressional action on those issues is
clear. His administration. and lawmakers now seem to be poised for one
big regular session next year that may run longer than the usual four
months.
In fact, many say some of the issues the Legislature will consider,
welfare as an example, will take years to eventually solve. Many of the
social issues will be tried in experiments and be fine-tuned or abandoned
later.
THEY'LL GET ENTIRE $295 IMPACT FEE BACK
The Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department made some
510,000 Floridians happy last week by announcing impact fee refunds of
$295 each will be made in November to motorists who brought vehicles
into the state between July 1, 1991, and Sept. 29, 1994.
Officials said they will not have to deduct anything for the $6.5 mil-
lion lawyer fees because there is enough, unclaimed money to cover the
costs.
But true Justice hasn't prevailed yet. The 510,000 motorists will not
get any interest on the impact fees the Florida Supreme Court declared
unconstitutional and those who paid it under a similar law in effect from
July 1, 1990 to June 30, 1991, will not get anything because they weren't
included in the class-action suit.
A bill has been entered in the Florida legislature, however, to com-
pensate those who paid the fee provided by the earlier law passed by
money-hungry lawmakers.
COURT MAY GET SENATE REDISTRICTING SUIT
Partisan, political concerns on which districts would get voters from a
predominately black Senate district in the Tampa Bay area has created
an impasse in negotiations that will apparently force the court to draw
boundary lines.
The U. S. Supreme Court ruled in June, district boundaries could not
be drawn solely on the basis of race and a group of residents sued to over-
turn Florida Senate District 21 which includes predominately black sec-
tions of four Tampa Bay counties.
Florida legislators had tentatively agreed on boundary lines that
would have favored the reelection of black Democratic Sen. Jim Hargrett,
but the settlement fell apart when it was challenged by Democratic House
Speaker Peter Wallace of St. Petersburg.
Wallace wanted to put voters from the concentrated black District 21
into neighboring districts to favor the election of more Democrats,
whether they be black or white.
The U. S. District Court said it will assemble a three-judge panel this
month to draw the district lines if the Florida legislature is unable to do
it.
PANEL AND GOVERNOR MADE UP OWN RULES
A panel of business and government executives headed by Gov.
Lawton Chiles made up their own rules on promoting international devel-
opment to the tune of about $1 million in state grant money, according
to chief inspector Harold Lewis.
The report dismissed complaints against the Florida International
Affairs Commission about its fornier director's travel expenses. Neither
was there an explanation for his resignation.
:; Lewis said the: panel should use specific criteria for awards grant .,
xmoneyz and then:follow up to be sure the taxpayers get their money's ..-,
worth. ..

BEST FOOT FORWARD
By Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist


BLISTERS
While foot blisters are com-
monplace, they can become im-
pediments to proper foot func-
tion. Blisters are pockets of fluid
between the inner and outer
layer of the skin. They are the
:body's natural response to un-
due pressure or friction. If blis-
ters persist, it's a sign of poorly
fitting shoes, which rub a partic-
ular area of the foot, causing ir-
ritation. That poor fit must be
addressed or the inflammation
will cause even more pain.
Breaking a blister can ex-
pose sensitive skin to the source


Medicare


of irritation and
will undoubted-
ly cause even
more severe pain.
Blisters are best
protected by
padded bandages.
If inflammation or swelling
occurs around a blister see your
podiatrist immediately to pre-
vent even more serious prob-
lems from developing.

-It Was Just A Test-
I know-last week I told Flori-
da fans to watch the Florida-
Auburn game (when I knew they
were playing Georgia). It was just
;a test-to see how many were
paying attention to the column.
University of Florida fans don't
really care, who they're playing
anyhow-they'll be there!
Gator fans were at Liberty
County Friday night in large
numbers, but all they got was an,
early dose of Halloween night-
mares. Every possible thing that
could go wrong did, one after the
other. By the time we finally got
the bleeding stopped it was 'too
late, and the Bulldogs cruised .to
a 34-0 district win, setting up a
possible three-way tie (Assuming
all three win the remaining regu-
lar games). The Gators have a
week off to prepare for Apalachi-.
cola. Anything can happen in
high school athletics.

The time change. created its
usual havoc, but thank goodness
our bell system now automatical-
ly adjusts itself and I don't have
to touch it. I'm not sure how it
does it, I'm just proud that it
does!
The ring salesman from
Herff-Jones will be here Novem-
ber 2 to relieve parents of some of
their extra cash. Juniors, can
spend as much as they can afford
(or as much as parents will al-
low). My caution is to be frugal-
most rings won't fit in a couple of
years, or girl or boy friends usual-
ly end up 'getting them. But, it's
not my money
Make-up' days are the hot
topic of conversation these, days,.
but no decision has been made
yet. Some will have to be made
up and parents, teachers,' and
students will be notified as soon
as possible.
FSU fans are questioning the
-wisdom of "open" dates, since Ne-
braska edged ahead in both
polls-they need to remember
that college schedules are often
made years in advance, and are
not very flexible once made. If the
Seminoles are for real, they will
be there at the end-just win all
remaining games, including the
University of Florida, beat Ne-
braska in the Fiesta Bowl, and
they will win the National Cham-
pionship I 1 (Unless, of course,
Notre Dame wins one more
game-they'll automatically be
crowned National Champion).

Parents Make The Difference
Many' parents used to begin
saving for college when their chil-
dren reached high school, and
college expenses were paid from
savings and current income. To-
day, becausecollege costs are ris-
ing much faster than the'average
income, a greater amount has to
come from savings.
The state of Florida has creat-
ed an innovative program that
makes saving for college easy,,iec-
onomical and completely safe.
With the Florida Prepaid College
Program, you not only gain the'
advantages of a head start on col-
lege financing, you know precise-
ly the amount you need to save
each month t6o pay for tilition and'
dormitory, and you know for'
years' in advance. What's more
the costs are all guaranteed. Your
child's education need not be a fi-
nancial burden.
The sign-up period this year
for the Florida Prepaid College
Program is limited and began Oc-
tober 16. For more information,

years ago by a high school in
Memphis, Tennessee. The stu-
dent council from Central High
School in Memphis was excited
about their 10 years of existence
and decided to.share their excite-.
ment with area councils. The
S.A.S.C. began in Memphis at a
small high school and now is an
annual tradition for many high
schools across the southern Unit-
ed States.
' The theme for the conference
was, very appropriately, "Leader-
ship & All That Jazz". The confer-
ence began with a beautiful flag
presentation and salute to Mardi
TGras. Sticudents dressed in the
original, ornate Mardi Gras cos-
tumes were introduced to the del-
egates. The conference followed in
the same jubilant and spirit-filled
attitude.
The delegates attended a
number,of general session meet-
ings and enjoyed several different
motivational speakers. They also
were able to participate in work-
shops ranging. from "How To


Build Your School Spirit" to a
personal recount of the Holocaust
from an actual Holocaust survi-
vor. One afternoon was set aside
for a tour of the New Orleans
French Quarter. The conference
ended with a' banquet on the
'Natchez" river boat cruise on the
Mississippi River.
The conference was a lot of
fun and a great learning experi-
ence for all who attended.
The Student. Council officers
and advisors from Port St. Joe
High School-Rodney Herring,
Laurel Riley, Kristi Lawrence,
Stefanie Wibberg, Brigette God-
frey, and Matt White-would like
to extend their sincere- apprecia-
tion to the following businesses

a total of 242 kids. But they
didn't just sit there and soak it
up like sponges. During Satur-
day's recreational session, kids
and adults could be seen body
surfing through the gym and
Commons Area.
Skits and impromptu acts
and songs provided a heyday of
sorts as the level of participation
by these kids launched into a tre-
mendous outpouring of youthful
energy! Of course, it was all most-
ly for fun, and fun it was!
"Lean On Me" was a favorite
song it was evident that, the
spirit was among them as this be-
came the theme song. Videos are
being made 'available to area
churches stressing the content of
the message and the fun. .: ,
Talk of future events, ideas
and suggestions that would help
to continue to: ,bring area youth
together is always welcome and
the community1 schools' Fellow-

proven to be a great vehicle for
seeing these things through.
This event that brought kids
together from many church de-

who contributed food and time,

RESOLUTION 95-26 I
WHEREAS, the federal hazardous
waste cleanup law, the Comprehensive


Environmental Response, Compensation,
Sand Liability Act (CERCLA)-Known as
Superfund-has been in operation since
1980 but has made little progress in meet-
ing its goal of promptly cleaning up the
nation's most dangerous hazardous waste
sites-and the average cost to clean a
Superfund site is over $25 million and
takes an average of 12 years to complete.
and; WHEREAS, Superfund's retroactive
liability system shifts EPA's fcus from
cleanup to enforcement, delaying the long-
term cleanup process and wasting billions
of dollars on legal fees and other transac-


tTon costs that could be better spent on
cleanup. Determining equitable liability
retroactively is also -dften.ri.mpossible
because records are incomplete or non-
existent, and: WHEREAS. Superfund can
have broad implications for local govern-
ments, beyond direct, responsibility for
cleanup in that its local businessesmay
be at risk from liability and that concern
over liability can drive .away potential
investors, new businesses, developers and
jobs. The threat of Superfund liability .may
also cause decreased real estate value and
generally harm the local economy; BE IT
RESOLVED THAT. Congress and the Ad-
ministration should seek comprehensive
reforms to Superfund during the program's
reauthorization this year. beginning with an
immediate, thorough review of the effects of
the current liability. financing, and remedy
systems. and: BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED
THAT,. once Congress has studied the
effects of these systems. that they and the
Administration give consideration to enact-
ing legislation which"supports the reform
principles' developed' by the Local
Governments for Superfund Reform' and
Superfund Reform '95 Coalition, which
would provide for a significantly more effec-
tive. efficient and equitable program for all
local governments and other affected inter-
ests. We strongly support these principles
and urge Congress to give them full and
immediate attention. (end)
