City Gets Possession of Maddox Property

SState Agency Purchases Parcel to Preserve It In Its Natural State


Mayor Frank Pate announced Tuesday that the City
of Port St. Joe has been successful in getting the Flori-
da Communities Trust to purchase the property known
for many years as the Fred and Zola Maddox homestead
property. The property consists of some three acres on
the shore of St. Joseph Bay situated at the west end of
Fourth Street on the west side of Baltzell Avenue.
Under this program the Florida Communities Trust
purchases a piece of property, but it is then owned by
thie city.
SThe Mayor andiBoard of Commissioners has worked .
for several years in trying to obtain this parcel for the
public so it can remain in virtually the same state it is


now in. Mayor Pate said, "There will be very minor de-
velopment of the property sp it will remain as much as
possible lp its natural state and can be enjoyed by fu-
ture generations."
The Mayor was also especially complimentary of the
professional manner that the Florida Communities
Trust had exhibited in assisting the city with this pur-
chase.

ed on the property, which wlll be'renovated-aLd posi- -I

to Pate.


Gulf County's three million
dollar road paving project will be
offered for bids next week Bill
Kennedy, Preble & Rish,
Engineers, told the Board of,
County Commissioners In
Tuesday evening's regularly
scheduled meeting.
The board has worked for sev-
eral months to secure the road
bond issue and iron out an agree-
ment with the cities of Port SL Joe
and Wewahitchka. They had
offered to take over road paving
and maintenance responsibilities'
for both cities in exchange for
their portion of secondary road
paving funds.
Kennedy said somewhere in
the vicinity of 50 miles of county
roads currently appear on the
proposed paving list. Most or all of
these roads will be paved,
depending upon whether or not
some must be cut from the list if
the bids come in higher than the
amount of funds available
through the bond issue.
The vast majority of the roads
listed are less than one mile in
length with over 200 county roads
listed on the approximately 600
page bid specification document.
C-30E is by far the largest
project on the list, stretching from
C-30 to the entrance of SL Joseph
State Park on the St. Joseph
Peninsula. Its status is somewhat
in question though, because the
board-appears close to working
out a deal with DOT to swap C-
30E and C-30A back to the state
in exchange for the county taking
over the recently .constructed


Community Will Offer

Thanks In Worship Tues. .


Port St Joe will pause to give
God thanks Tuesday evening,
gathering in a combined worship
service being, conducted by the
Ministerial Association at the
Long Avenue Baptist Church au-
ditorium at the corner of Six-
teenth Street and Long Avenue.
The special emphasis on giv-
ing 'Thanks" is a joint venture of
all faiths in the city just prior to
the annual holiday.
The special program, which
has been very well attended in
the past few years, will begin at
7:00 p.m., with the Long Avenue
pastor, Curtis Clark, giving the
welcome. Trevor Burch six-year-
old son of Mr. and Mrs. Rusty
Burch, and Zedoc Baxter, pastor
of the First United Methodist
Church, will both be reading the
scripture lesson. Dr. Gary Smith,
pastor of First Baptist Church,
will give the benediction.
Jeff Scalf, pastor of the St.
Joe'Assembly of God Church, will
deliver the thanksgiving sermon.
Special music will be provid-
ed by a 50-voice combined choir
composed of members from sever-
al churches throughout the city.
Lisa Keels and Sarah Lamberson
will be soloists.


Following the worship service
a special time of fellowship will be
held in the Long Avenue Church's
Family Life Center, adjacent to
the church.
Ladies from the several
churches throughout the area
will bring finger foods to the spe-
cial fellowship time.


Public Discussion On


,Vision" Plan
Have you always wanted to
have the opportunity to voice your
opinion on the future plans and
directions Port St.. Joe should fol-
low? Now's your chance.
The Port St. Joe Chamber of
Commerce is sponsoring a
'Visions" workshop Thursday and
Friday evenings, November 16
and 17,beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The workshops will be held at the
Centennial Building on Allen
Memorial Way.
The workshops, conducted by
Design Studio West consultants,
are being held to help draft a
'Visions Plan" for the entire city of
Port St. Joe.
Design Studio West consul-
tant Russell Moore told The Star,


Today; Fri.
"Input is the key to drafting the
best plan for your community."
Moore will be in town all day
Thursday and Friday, meeting
with various civic, business and
community leaders, and conduct-
ing public workshops on both
evenings. He urged interested cit-
izens to attend the meetings and
air their issues and concerns, as
well as help plan future strategies
and direction for the city.
Chamber Executive Director
Tamara Laine pointed out that in
light of some of the changes tak-
ing place in the community (the
sale of St. Joe Forest Products
and St. Joseph Telecommuni-
cations) it is important that a new

WMBB Comments on Coverage
WMBB-TV 1News Director
Larche Hardy and weatherman
Jerry Tabot addressed the board
concerning a letter sent to them
by the board, complaining of their
lack of information and coverage
given to Gulf County during and
after Hurricane Opal and also
during past storms.
The County Commissioners
sent the letters out to area media
following complaints from county
residents and board members
that adequate information failed
to be aired after it was sent to the
media.by Gulf County Emergency
Management personnel.
Residents that had evacuated the
county were especially upset
because they couldn't get back to
their homes to assess their dam-
age and adequate information
wasn't aired by area media to
* inform them of their damage,
Board Chairman Billy Traylor
told the representatives the letters
were sent out in response to ques-
tions asked by residents who
wanted to know why there was-io
media coverage. He-also-present-
ed them with phone records doc-
umenting numerous press releas-
es had been sent to their station,
as well as many other area TV,
radio, and newspapers in the
area, by Gulf County's Emergency
Management.
Hardy told the board there
were obviously some breakdowns
on their part, pointing out the sta-
tion had problems during the
storm handling the volumes of
information and experiencing a
loss of power themselves right in
the middle of it all.
:'We were caught off guard
too, and hope we can use this
issue to help us better prepare for
the next storm," Hardy told the
board.
Commissioner Nathan Peters,
Jr. told Hardy and Tabot that

Day
The Star will observe
an early publication day
next week, due to the
Thanksgiving holiday fall-
ing on its usual distribu-
tion day.
The newspaper will go
to .press Tuesday after-
noon, rather than the cus-

ning to news stands and
ma2 subscriptions will
also be mailed on Tuesday.
This will enable all of the
publication's many readers
:to have the paper in their

This necessitates set-
Sting our deadline for news
and advertising at Monday
noon, to enable us to have
time to set the material in

t newspaper pages. No
item brought in after Mon-
day noon will make it into

The Star anticipates
your cooperation in this
matter and appreciates the
opportunity to get our

PSJ Campus

An Idea Long In The Making
IT HAS BEEN A WHILE since the idea was first introduced
to build a Port St. Joe campus of Gulf Coast Community College.
If memory serves us correctly, it was way back when Dr. Richard
Morley was president of the school and George G. Tapper was
chairman of the Board of Directors.
Gulf County was just finishing with a major building pro-
gram of its secondary schools. The two high schools in the
cority had justbeen replaced with a revolutionary "pod" design
and the round buildings were the talk of the trade among area
schools. The new, round gymnasium here in Port St. Joe was the
envy of class 2A schools for miles in every direction. Gulf Coast
College played some of their basketball games in Port St. Joe's
new gym back In its early days.
THE ORIGINAL "TALKING" site of the college branch cam-
pus was in the vicinity of the "new" high school building. Gulf
Coast officials made a trip to Port St. Joe to look over the pro-
posed location. We all thought we were going to get the new in-
stitution of higher learning just any day. But. we didn't! A com-
modity Identified as "money" stood in the way; or it might be
more correct to say. a lack of money blocked the way.
It has been so for several revivals of the good idea over the
past passage of time. We're still waiting for that community col-
lege annex to be built. Port St. Joe and Apalachicola people by
the droves commute back and forth to the Panama City campus
every day and night to attend classes.
NOW, THE MONEY IS being made available to build the
school. In all likelihood the branch campus will only take care of
the needs of the night-time [or part-time students at first. But.
that will be a start in the right direction.
$600,000 won't build much of a school. It will, however,
build the first building, of some sort, for the Port St. Joe campus
of Gulf Coast Community College. We will be an official part of
the college. Who knows? It just may build two buildings of the
fledgling campus.
At any rate, it will culminate the dream of Dr. Morley and
Mr. Tapper. It will be a king-size boon for the people of Port St.
Joe, Apalachicola and Wewahitchka who wish to pursue ad-
vanced studies in a variety of subjects.
Don't denigrate any first efforts at establishment of a new
branch campus. After all, GCCC didn't have the fine plant it cur-
rently occupies when the school first began to accept students.
It first began operation in some old wooden barracks buildings
which made up a temporary military complex which operated as
a make-shift shipyard during World War II days.
Such an institution must start somewhere. We're Just glad
the new Port St. Joe campus will start with better facilities than
Its parent did.



Indian Summer

THIS TIME OF THE year-Indian Summer-is possibly the
favorite time of the year-for most people. The mornings are
crispy cool, the days mostly dry,,and,.sunny. It's within spitting
distance of the two favorite holidays of, the year, when people
start getting ready to mark the birth of the Christ child and feast
at the celebration of both Christmas and Thanksgiving.
For the sports fan, football is in full swing and is drawing
near the championship-deciding stage. Basketball is in the
wings and the first day of the hunting season is here.
Life Is good during Indian Summer!
IT HAS SOMETHING FOR everyone but the mullet lover.
Historically this time of the year is mullet gourmet time for both
the delectable fish and its by-product, the mullet roe. The
"catch" season should be in full swing, along about now. Mullet
should be readily available for everyone's menu. but it is con-
spicuous by its absence.
A major part of Indian Summer-to some, the best part-is
available no longer. Locating a mess of real,,fresh mullet is near-
ly just a dream of what has been. rather than a reality for sup-
per this evening.
BUT MULLET, LIKE many other good things of the past is
Just that-a thing of the past!
If you know someone with a cast net. you might slake the
'mullet hunger' which gnaws at one's innards at this time of the
year. But, if you don't know such a person, try to conjure up in
your mind how a good platter full of fresh, piping-hot fried mul-
let, along with some some good cheese grits, tasted.
Is that filling enough?

Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert
f


Genesis 12:1-3


- i ;


Stephen is Just about my all
time favorite New Testament
character. When the big time "re-
ligious leaders" of his day chal-
lenged him because he spoke
with more wisdom and under-
standing than they could com-
prehend Stephen didn't bat an
eye. Nor did he flinch when they
captured him, brought him be-


fore their council, had people to
stand up and lie against him and
generally put him in the middle
of a frenzied whirlwind. He didn't
even take a step backwards
when they picked up the big
rocks and explained if he didn't
"get with the program" they were
.going to bash him up side the
head. No sir. instead, he com-
menced to give them a history
lesson, pointing out the unholy
errors of their ways.
And he called them stiff
necked!
I have heard high, most
.learned scholars expound at


great length on exactly why God
chose to give His message to the
world through the tiny nation of
Israel. I ain't high or most
learned, but I think God knew
the task was not going to be for
the faint of heart. He'd better
look around In His infinite wis-
dom and pick the most stiff-
necked people he could find.
Folks. God is perfect! You look at
the history of the Israelite na-
tion. A more stubborn. obstinate.
you can't move me unless -
I want to be moved group
you'll never see! They are stiff-
necked when they are right and


bless their souls, they're just as
stiff-necked when they are
wrong.
Yet, history has proved, you
can't capture them and assimi-
late them into your culture. You
can't intermarry and water 'em
down. You can't flood 'em out.
You can't gas 'em out. You can't
stomp 'em ouL They wrote the
book on resiliency.
Literally!
In 1967, as a result of the
Six Day War, Israeli forces cap-
tured the old part of their be-
loved Jerusalem. It had been
2,500 years since they last pos-
sessed this hallowed ground.
Folks that's a long time in the
wilderness. I happened to catch
the CBS Evening News that
night. Walter, as you might ima-
gine, was ready with the film of
this historic occasion. A short,
mild mannered looking soldier
with a black eye patch stood In
front of a crumbling, dusty, old
stone wall. The camera zoomed
in as he spoke, "We're here, we're
here." he glanced back reverently
at the old wall, "and we'll never
leave!" I take back that mild
mannered part. Moshe Dayan
stood in front of the Walling
Wall-the only part left from
King Selomon's Temple-and
made a believer out of me! I
didn't know about that stiff neck
stuff back then. but I understood
mule headed. I caught the set of
his Jaws, the fire flying from his
good eye. He wasn't leaving .His
people weren't leaving!
It might be the ultimate hun-
kering down stance of all time!
There was another Israeli
soldier in that news reel. He
stood in the background, didn't
speak and went mostly unno-
ticed that fateful day. He had
played an Important role In get-
ting his country to this point and
he would go on to even more im-
portant things. His name was
Yitzhak Rabin.
I don't understand all that is
going on along the West Bank,
6out oh'''the Golaii Heights or'
dwc~rsouth ofi;Jeitsalem in. the..'
Gaza Strip? *i-et..mtbe more spe-.
cific-I don't understand any-
thing that is going on over there.
I am a little leery of this Shimon
Peres guy. He seems in quite a
big hurry to speed up the peace
process. Giving away the farm
has never led to any kind of last-
ing peace. And besides, I don't
remember seeing him in that
1967 news reel.
He may not have the neck for
the job.
The world doesn't seem to
know what to do wilh Jerusalem.
It has become a burdensome
stone. One that most wish would
Just go away. Let's ease it under
the rug and get with the exciting
happenings ofa new world order.
Let's have one large central bank
for all nations, one world curren-
cy so we won't have to fiddle with
exchange rates, a universal cred-
it card to simplify ..... maybe
we could vote us in a tri-lateral

Dollar Will Remain Popular, No Matter What Its Composition


COLUMNIST GEORGE Will
examined a potential Issue of the
federal government the other day,
in his column: more explicitly,
the Treasury Department and
whether or not to begin making
one dollar denominations of cur-
rency In the form of coins rather
than the familiar paper.
The old greenback has been a
topic of heated discussion before
in its long life.
It first brought on a heated
argument when the Treasury first
began using It for legal tender, re-
placing the silver coin. That was a
rpl argument: the one to replace
the money certificate with a metal
coin Is child's play by compari-
son.
Then there are the numerous
times it has changed design,
shape and the uproar over whose
portrait should be on the front in
the first place.
The dollar bill-the most
trusted symbol of steady currency


SETAOIN SHRDLU


amsey


in the world today-has experi-
enced considerable controversy in
its long life.

NOW, ACCORDING TO Will.
various groups of supporters and
detractors are predicting any-
thing from dire consequences to
salvation for the nation, If the
switch Is made from paper to
metal coins.
Will says it will be good for
the deficit-the longer-lived metal
dollar will not need replacing as
often as the paper model. Engrav-
ers' and printers' unions in the
Government Printing Office are
fighting the suggestion while


vending machine companies,
mass transportation facilities and
Juke box manufacturers are all
looking forward to the day.
With our society's shift to
vending machines for everything
from postage stamps to turkey
sandwiches, we can all see the
-anticipation of a metal dollar.
-Many items now selling for less
than a dollar, in order to make,
them "vending machine-friendly"
will require the full dollar to pur-
chase.

WHAT WILL THE hot-shot do
to Impress everybody with his gl-
gantic roll of singles covered with


a twenty do? He won't be able to
flash his roll any more.
Can you imagine a pocket-
full of metal dollars, Jingling
against one another? What will be
the impressiveness in that? That
minglingg sound could just as well
be nickels, dimes or quarters.
Where would be the impresslve-
Sness in that?
The "change jar" would all
but disappear at home. At the
very least, it would be placed un-
Sder lock and key, rather than be
put on the top shelf of closets.
Tossing metal dollars in a change
jar would .cause one to think
twice.
Come to think of it, the "ash
'receiver" in my car would become
a valuable place in a hurry, since
this is where my change goes
when I get too much in my pock-
Sets to carry around.

THE DOLLAR BILL has be-
come the universal currency for
tipping the driver, the doorman,.


the waiter, the helper at the mo-
tel, the contribution What will
churches do? When that offering
plate is passed around, hardly
anybody gives a second thought
to tossing in a single. A real true
sport will put in two!
Churches may become one of
the strongest lobby against the
metal dollar bill. Hardly anyone
likes to give an offering which
clinks against the plate. Silent of-
ferings draw less attention to our
largess or lack of it.
The dollar bill will get you at-
tention when you travel to the off
shore nations or islands on that
cruise vacation. People there
know and appreciate what it is all
about, even if we don't.
The columnist pointed out
that ladies in some forms of en-
tertainment operations in Wash-
ington, D.C., didn't take too kind-
ly to the change to "change"
Either. It seems they feel a.chill
when the coins are tucked into
their G-strings while they are per-


forming.
I can see where they might be
a mite uncomfortable if left in the
skimpy garments for any length
of time too.

STHE SHIFT TO a metal dol-
lar may be a good thing; An ex-
amination of my own pocket re-
vealed several crumpled-up bills
of the one dollar denomination
and one or two which were of a
slightly larger value. They were
Crumpled up. too.
This is no way to treat per-
fectly good "coin of the realm".
Our nation used to operate
on silver dollars, $10, $20 and
$50 gold pieces and it got along:,
'fine, The practice was stopped
when people got in the habit of
shaving off the serrated edges to
get the valuable metal.
Whatever our future currency,
is made of-metal or paper-.
experience has proven it will al-
ways be in heavy demand.

Veterans' Sa

Nearly Two Dozen
Vets in Attendance
The opportunity to recognize
Gulf County veterans in ceremo-
nies Saturday was drowned out
by torrential raihs but their sacri-
fice paid in three wars did not en-
tirely go unnoticed.
In a moving ceremony at Port
St. Joe High School Friday morn-
ing, Lieutenant Colonel Patricia
White of the United States Air
Force spoke to the student body
and assembled veterans of all
wars, as the schools paid homage
to veterans from Gulf County and
noted the sacrifice they made to
preserve freedom.
Lt. Col. White made the ob-
servation that everyone can make
a difference in the world. "With
privilege comes the need for re-
sponsibility," she said, as she
challenged the students to also
be willing to make whatever sacri-
fice mankind and the world may
require of them. .
Nearly two dozen veterans
from the Port St. Joe area were in
the seats of honor as various ex-
pressions of tribute were paid
them from the high school chorus
accompanied by the guitar class;
S Lt. Cmdr. Jim McLeod who recog-
nized the veterans and the sacri-
fices they had made; Mrs. Archie
Gardner of the DAR; Ann Com-
forter who sang, "God Bless
America" and Rodney Herring
and Charles Osborne who tolled
off the names of Gulf County's 36
dead from three wars,
,Robbie Funderburk, Laura
Thompson and Heather Nixon re-
peated Lincoln's "Gettysburg Ad-
dress" and Mitch Bouington
closed out the memorial service
with a moving rendition of'Taps".
Others on the program were
the NJROTC Color Guard, who
presented the colors for the sa-
lute and pledge, led by Tony Gor-
don.
Music for the program was
provided by: the high school band
and accompanist, Janice .Cox.
School Board member Charlotte'
Pierce arranged ,the program and
welcomed guests and participants
to the ceremony

their presence shows they are
concerned about the problem and
that he appreciated them being at
the meeting. 'We're on the right
road toward working together," he
said.
Both men assured the board
that they know where Port St. Joe
is, as they explained they had
received numerous maps pointing
out what lies between Panama
City and Apalachicola, after airing
the National Weather Service bul-
letin concerning where Hurricane
Erin would likely make landfall.
Tabot told the board that now
was not the time to place blame,
but rather it was time to see what
they can do to improve in the
future.
Chairman Traylor suggested
to the board they plan a workshop
to address 'organizing a better
system to handle coinmunication
problems, as well as several other
glitches that surfaced during the
evacuation and recovery process;.
In Other Business
*Commissioner Warren Yea-
ger and Solid Waste Director Joe
Danford told the board it looks as
though the state was going to
offer small counties some finan-
cial assistance to help close land-
fills. Gulf County stands to be
reimbursed for much of their
expense, in closing Buckhorn
Landfill, located north of
Wewahitchka.
*Decided to hire Julian Webb,


Associates, to write a CDBG grant
application on the Highland View
water system, to replace water
service pipes and mains.
.Decided to advertise for bids
to buy beach cleaning machinery.
*Decided to enter into an
interlocal contractors' agreement
between Calhoun and Gulf
County contractors.
*Awarded Thompson Tractor
Company a bid of $100,230.00 to
furnish the county a heavy duty
front end loader, contingent upon
Road Department Supt. Bob
Lester's approval. The county will
also receive $31,000 in trade-in
for two other pieces of tractor
equipment.
*Received a letter from the
Public Service Commission advis-
ing the board a 25 cents flat rate
calling charge between Gulf and
Bay County would be looked at in
their November 21 meeting.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, NOV. 16, 1995 PAGE 5A


Students Make A Drence


Saturday, October 28, was
set aside, as Make-A-Difference
Day, the fifth annual day of doing
good deeds for others. Individuals
and organizations all across the
Country devo ld time, energy and
resources to benefit people in
need. In our area the needs as
well as the opportunities for ser-
vice were particularly great in the
aftermath of Hurricane Opal.
SMany local families had experi-
enced flooding and devastation,
which prompted a great outpour-
ing of volunteer effort from relief
agencies such as the American
Red Cross and the Salvation
Army.
Students at Port St. Joe High
School rose to the occasion and
, offered many acts of charity to
their community. The youth of
Sthe First United Methodist
Church were observed in various
locations about town cleaning up
yards and homes that had been
wooded. High school P.O.P.S. club
members dedicated their Make-A-
Difference efforts to reminding
; the community of safety Ups such
as the need to buckle-up and to
refrain from drinking while driv-
ing. And many local teens partici-'
pated in the Judgement House
drama at First Baptist Church.
SWhat better way to serve your fel-
low man than to help him be
aware of his spiritual needs.
Other volunteer efforts re-
ported by Port SL Joe High
School students included assist-
ing with carnival fundralsers for
their community's fire depart-
ment or elementary school. Dive
Club members donated time and
labor in replanting sea oats at the
-cape while several other students
reported debris clean-up work at
the beaches.
Numerous individual acts of
kindness have also been noted.
Students have visited the elderly
at the nursing home, cut grass
for a neighboring invalid, bought
lunch for a'homeless man, and
run errands for grandparents.
Free babysitting, car washing,
and storm damage repair work on
homes and businesses were do-
nated by various students.
Even though Make-A-
Difference Day has now passed,
the spirit of volunteerism contin-


ues. Two teacher-advisor groups
at Port St Joe High School have
committed to continue service
projects one by contributing
toys to the Toys for Tots efforts at
Christmas,. and the other by do-
nating funds to the Salvation
Army. The P.O.P.S. Club has or-
ganized a project to encourage


students to donate canned good .
for Thanksgiving food baskets to
be distributed to needy families
by the Ministerial Association.
And POPS members will also pro-
vide Christmas gifts to needy chil-
dren through HRS' Wish Upon A-,.
Star project.


All too frequently we .ar
negative, depressing news alut
the teenagers in our country.
Isn't it refreshing to know that
the majority of young people are
caring and compassionate, and
they are striving to make a posi-
tive difference In their communi-
ty? ....


Wewa Woman's Club News


Attend District Meeting
Hazel Bryant. Betty Holloway,
and Dottle Taylor were among the
77 club women who attended the
1995 G.F.W.C. Florida Federation
of Women's Clubs District 2 An-
nual Meeting held in Chipley. and
hosted by the Chipley Woman's
Club. Louclle Volk, District 2 Di-
rector chaired the meeting and
welcomed visiting state officers
Ramona Thompson, Federation
First Vice President and Gall Hill-
smith. Federation Director of
Junior Clubs.
Ramona presented a program
on the urgent need to retain and
Increase club membership which
was followed by group discus-
sions. Clubs throughout the state
of Florida are losing members..at
an alarming rate and this is of
great concern to the federation.
The answers to membership loss
are complex and probably differ-
ent for each club, but there Is
usually at least one common rea-
son: members' needs are not be-
ing met Clubs must be willing to
change and do whatever is neces-
sary to meet the needs of their
volunteers as they continue to
meet the needs of the communi-
ties they serve. The Individual
member is the single most impor-
tant reason the Florida Federa-
tion of Women's Clubs continues
to be a vibrant, caring organiza-
tion. It is the members and the
work they do in their communi-
ties that make the federation a
worthwhile organization.
A special "thank you" is ex-
tended to Chipley Woman's Club
President Caroline Townsend and
her members for the delicious
lunch served following the meet-
ing and the Chipley Jr. Woman's
Club for hosting a dinner for the


touring officers and all District 2
members on the evening before
,the annual meeting.
The next District 2 get-
together will be on February 17
when the Wewahitchka Woman's
Club hosts the District 2 Annual

Hunting Seasons
Open For Small
Game, Doves, Snipe
November 11 was opening
day in Florida for small game and
phase two of dove hunting. Wild-
life biologist Nick Wiley, of the
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission, said Florida has a good
crop of squirrels this year for
small game hunters, and some of
the state's wildlife management
areas offer excellent squirrel
hunting.
"Look for a wood lot or creek
bottom with trees that produce
nuts or seeds,' especially oak
trees with acorns," Wiley said.
"That's where you find an abun-
dance of squirrels."
For quail, hunters should fo-
cus on old weedy fields, grown up
fence rows, woodland edges and
open woodlands, he said.
During small game season
hunters may take a daily bag lim-
Sit of 12 quail, 12 gray squirrels
and two fox squirrels. On wildlife
management areas and in Lee,
Hendry, Palm Beach, Monroe,
Collier, Broward and Dade
counties, fox squirrels may not be
taken.
'"Small game season contin-.
ues through March 3," Wiley said.
"It provides a great opportunity
for parents who want to introduce
Their children to hunting."
The best dove hunting. Wiley
said, occurs around active farm-
ing '6dp&t6ifts," esipclally' Wiheire"
grain crops have been hari'sted.
The daily bag limit for doves is
12, only four of which may be
white-winged doves. The second
phase of dove season closes on
November 26. The third phase is
set for December 9 through Janu-
ary 7.
Another migratory game bird,
snipe, also is legal to take
through February 15, with a daily
bag limit of eight. Snipe hunters
do best in marshy fields and ex-
posed mud flats along the edges
of lakes and ponds. .
Possession limits for all game
species are twice the-daily bag
limit
Small game may be taken
'with a shotgun, rifle, pistol, bow
or crossbow. Migratory birds may
not be taken by pistol or rifle.

elected to go on defense giving
Greensboro the ball on the 10
yard line with four downs to
score, as prescribed by the Kan-
sas tie-breaker format.
Greensboro got four yards up-
the middle on first down, but on
second down Amp Hill's tackle in

two incomplete passes to hold
them scoreless in the four down
series.
Wewa got the ball and Danny
Voyles ran for four yards on the
first down. A' holding penalty, in-
,.. complete pass, and five yard run
by David Hysmith set up the field
goal try from the, 10 yard line on
fourth down.
But, an illegal procedure pei-
alty moved the ball back fivd
more yards to the 15 yard line
where Hysmith split the upright
for the 32 yard three point play
and district runner-up title.
Wewa won the coin toss in
their match-up with Liberty
County for the top spot in the dis-
trict race, again electing to de-
fend.
After gaining three yards on
first down, the Bulldogs Jumped
offsides on second down moving
the ball back to the 12 yard line.
Tranum McLemore provided the
Gators with a big break when he
intercepted a Liberty County pass
in the end zone on the ensuing

yards off a quarterback sneak.

Newly appointed Circuit
Court Judge' Michael C. Over-
street was recently invested to the
position on October 20, in an in-
vestiture ceremony attended by
several hundred persons from
throughout the Fourteenth Judi-
cial Circuit.
. Overstreet's assignment will
make him a true "circuit riding"'
judge. His home office will be sit-
uated in Marianna; however, he
-will be traveling to Gulf, Holmes,
Washington, Jackson, Calhoun,
and Bay counties each week. Cir-
cuit judges hear all felony crimi-
nal cases, civil trials involving
disputes for damages in excess of
$15,000, juvenile delinquency
cases, and various other legal
matters, including probate cases.
Recently, Overstreet was
overheard to say: "I'm particularly
excited about the prospect of
serving the people of Bay, Cal-
houn, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson,
and Washington Counties as
their new circuit court judge. The
S 14th Judicial Circuit, reminds me
of a beautiful patchwork quilt.' It
is comprised of good and hard-
working people of all walks of life:
mill workers, farmers, fishermen,
military personnel, retirees,
ranchers, homemakers, and peo-
ple who work in other people's
homes. People from the city and
people from the country."
"I feel a certain kinship with
everyone in the Fourteenth Judi-
cial Circuit since my life has also
been like a patchwork quilt. I've
lived In the city and I've lived in
the country. I've worked outdoors
with my hands and I've worked
indoors at a desk. These personal
experiences give me a special
strength to serve all these won-
derful people as their judge. You
see, a judge takes a.solemn oath
to protect the notion that in the
courtroom all people, irrespective
of race, color, religion, and eco-


Judge Michael C. Overstreet
nomic status, are treated equally
and with respect. That is called
justice. The people of all these
counties deserve that"
Overstreet Is 43 years old and
married to. Deborah Overstreet
who is also a lawyer. Judge and
Mrs. Overstreet have a seven year
old daughter, Avery.
Overstreet grew up in Florida,
and was in private law practice
for sixteen years before taking the
bench. Overstreet is an avid out-
doorsman who enjoys backcoun-
try hiking and riding the family's
horse.
Overstreet's judicial assistant
is Mary Boyd, formerly Mary
Smith of Chipley.

o enjoyed and adding some exemp-
s tions we have not had before," the
ni speakeFsaid.-- .---------
Tucker listed the most com-
.t mon deduction which has been-
- removed is the exemption gained
by interest payments. 'Your home
d mortgage interest is still deducti-
t ble but much of the other interest
one normally deducts, is no long-
e er deductible," Tucker said.
y He .advised investing extra
g money In retirement programs
and stocks and bonds to protect
any income one wishes to use in
his retirement years. "It isn't tax-
able now, but will be later on, but
you will probably be in a lower in-
come bracket by then, and owe
less taxes on the money."
The speaker said some new
j things are expected out of the
- new session of Congress, such as
! increases in, personal exemptions,
S children's exemptions and vari-
ous other tax breaks as well as
an increased liability to pay, in
S some instances.

Carl [Bucky] Richter, Port St.
Joe Police Chief, spoke to the reg-
ular weekly meeting of the Kiwa-
nis Club Tuesday, outlining some
of the activities the Department is
involved in to prevent crimes be-
fore they happen. .. '
The department is Involved
in at least eight separate pro-
grams, all of which are showing
dramatic results.
'The biggest thing we have
going for us, in the realm of crime
prevention, is our crime hot tip
line," he said. "Anybody who sees
a suspicious activity or witnesses
a crime in progress can Immedi-
ately summon an officer by Just
dialing 229-COPS. We'll be on the.'
scene in a matter of minutes."
Richter said several other ac-'
tivities by his Department are
helping to curtail and control::
crime in Port St. Joe "and acttqal-
ly throughout the county," he
said.
Several methods local police
are using to facilitate the recovery
of stolen goods is to offer the ser-
vice of engraving the owner's driv-
er license number on the Items
for identification. Another service
helps owners identify their prop-
erty and the number of pieces in
case of fire or other disaster, for
insurance purposes.
The speaker said the depart-
ment is' also involved in removing
abandoned buildings, sheds and
homes to do away with their be-
ing used as gathering sites for

By Linda Whitfield


Now Is That In Georgia?
One day last week in the
lunchroom we had peaches in lit-
tle containers. One of the first
graders asked 'his teacher, Mrs.
Rhonda Pridgeon, if they were
from Georgia. She looked at the
container and then replied, "No, it
says they're from California." He
said, "Well, California must be in
Georgia theh." They were deli-
cious!
Jeremy Baxley Is
CP Student Of The'Week
Jeremy Baxley, the six-year
old son of Terry and Leisa Baxley,
is the Student of the Week select-
ed by Mrs. Whitten. Jeremy likes
to play hide and seek and ride his
bike. When he grows up, he
would like to be a football player.
for FSU. (Mrs. Whitten says she'll
change that to Gators )
SAmong his favorites are: play-
mate, his cousin, Tyril; TV show,
Power Rangers; and his favorite
color is white. Jeremy says this
about himself: "I like school be-
:cause I get smart" His teacher
says, "Jeremy is a wonderful stu-
dent who is smart because he is
so interested in learning." We
really appreciate students who
want to learn.
Sympathy To Mrs. Walker
WES and Mr. Kelley would
like to extend its warmest sympa-
thies to kindergarten teacher in
the loss of her beloved grandfa-
ther, Gene Setzer. Mr. Setzer was
her maternal grandfather and
lived in North Carolina. The fti-
neral was this past Sunday. Mr.


Setzer had cancer and had been
in declining health for three years.
Words To Live By
Social studies teacher, Becky
Birmingham gave me this sheet of
words to live by and I thought I'd
share a few. It is from ,the book,
Mother To Daughter.
"Treat your children like
plants, with lots of sunshine and
room to grow."
"A smile and a thank you
won't cost you a dime.'But not
doing either may cost you later."
And my favorite is "You
pass this way but once. Any good
you can do, do it now."
Report Cards
WES handed out the report
cards for the second six weeks on
Wednesday, November 15: Some
looked in anticipation and others
in dread. Parents, please call the
school for a conference if you
would like one. Teachers are anx-
ious to help your child.

came the "Ecoheroes". These tal-

students at Wewahitchka Ele-

The drama performed was

don't take care of our earth. Com-
plete with costuming, music, and
props, the show was a definite
hit.


A great big THANK YOU to all
those who joined us Saturday at
the Harvest Festival. We were
flooded out, but managed to sal-

dinners were sold Tuesday to use
up the food and another garage

at the school for those who might
like to see them.

On.... Personal Observations of A Stay
In the Hospital and Time on My Hands


By Mike Ferris
This all started innocently
enotigh in the AM hours of 1st
November when I showed up for
an appointment at surgeon's of-
fice in a larger city. Noticing my
obvious discomfort in my hard
and uncomfortable bed a young
nurse, obviously eager to make a
name for herself, offered me an
injection to make me relax. I real-.
ly could .not refuse the young
thing as I obediently rolled over to
better expose the target area. It
was a numbing experience to say
the least because the next thing I
was' aware of was hours later
when somebody- or something.
was pulling and tugging at my
numb carcass trying to place me
on a different bed. Opening:my
eyes slightly I saw figures in
white fussing over me. My first
thought was that I mustve been
abducted by a UFO. but on an-
other -glance the ETs seemed
much too human, and anyway I
could not Imagine the aliens trav-
eling through the unimaginable
distances Just to examine 1'l ol'
me? About that time I heard Sy-
bil's familiar voice inquiring
about the quality of my longish
nap. ,

My new' bed was soft and"
comfy. My priite room was high
enough off the ground to filter out
ordinary street clatter allowing;
only genuine city sounds to in-
trude on my privacy; ambulanc-.
es, emergency vehicles etc.. It
was Just about twilight in the city
when I came about and the night-
ly activity was Just being shifted
into higher gear. The street motto
around here is "don't get mad-get
even", and-from the frequency of
the wailing sirens- I could easily
tell that the "get even" crowd was
on the -prowl already. And it.
wasn't even a full moon.
My appointment was to cor-
rect a minor surgery that didn't
go right the first time. This cut
had to be more extensive and It
also involved a skin graft, I asked
for volunteers but Sybil wouldn't
hear of IL There goes the spousal

his wife-to-be until shegave him
one of her kidneys. Their divorce
ought to be a lu-lu and OJ's story
will pale by comparison.
My operation was an unquali-
fled success and the prognosis
was "good", which translated means
"keep your fingers crossed". At
any rate the good doctor promises .
to keep at it till he gets it rightL
Such an unselfish dedication.


leaves me with a lump in my
throat and will easily bring tears
to my eyes especially if I have to
go back for a third time.
The repair was done on the'
left side of left leg just above the
ankle allowing me to lay on my
back and idle the many hours
away. In that position I could
watch the continuous airing of
the "special bulletin" on most of
the TV channels-and isn't the
remote control wonderful?-or I
could study the intricate designs
of the ceiling tile. I chose the lat-
ter because it was more challeng-
ing and which soon began to in-
trigue me. Luckily I soon was
sent home
I now feel almost obligated to
say something nice about the TV
but the words escape me, which
is just as well because I am fresh
out of nice adjectives anyway.
Umm. well, the remote control.
worked nicely.
Because of her workload our
daughter was unable to visit and
to remain in my will sent an ap-
propriate get-well card to the hos-
pital via the Fed-Ex. This created
no end of excitement at- the mall
room. It seemed no one could lo-
cate a Dr. M. Ferris. Surely, they
figured, no ordinary mortal would
be receiving a Fed-Ex correspon-
dence. But in two or three days
the package found its addressee.
none-the-worse for wear. And
they thought the crossword puz-
zles were hard.
Meanwhile, poor Sybil hung
In there through thick and thin,
suffering worst of the humiliation
and indignities which included
sleeping in the corer of my room
like an Illegal alien, on a hospital-
issue. early-American cot that
had to have been rejected by the
Salvation Army, who don't reject,
much..
Come to think of it, my own
bed-rest wasn't all that restful,
what with the eager nurses racing
down the hallways with their nee-
dles at ready. Under those condi-
tions the term "detention" would
probably be more fitting. and
about the riost' charitable' com-'
ment- Ican make-about'my 7-day
stay is that it was ONE BUM

But there was a big-time cele-
bration and much ado back in
box 105 when finally, unassisted.
clawed my way up to my 3rd floor
rom and into my own little bed
where I could study my own ceil-
Sing tile n detail.
Now I ask you. Is this a great
life or what?

duty in the Persian Gulf near
Iraq.
McCall is one of 212 squad-
ron members aboard the ship

cluded more than 80 tactical air-
craft, and ships and submarines
armed with Tomahawk cruise
missiles.
While on deployment, McCall,
and fellow sailors helped enforce
the international no-fly zone over
Southern Iraq. Aircraft from
McCall's squadron flew more.
than 350 missions to prevent un-
authorized aircraft from flying,
over southern Iraq. In all, aircraft

BEST FOOT FORWARD

UNEQUAL LEG LENGTH
How rare is it that a person's
two legs are not of equal length?
Sampling of the general population
by researchers disclosed a high in-
cidence of undiagnosed limb length
discrepancy, according to a report
in a podlatric journal.
Some cases are structural-
that Is. a shortened distance of the
bone system between the top of the
thighbone and the ankle Joint. In
other cases the discrepancy is
created by faulty functioning of the
foot or leg. such as the tendency of
a foot to roll laterally with each
step. Pain In the lower back or
knee and several kinds of foot com-
plaints can be signals of unequal


length.
The podia-
trist may employ
several methods.
including X-rays.
to. determine If RA
limb length discrepancy exists. Ifit
does. problems caused by the con-
dition often can be resolved by the
use of orthotc shoe inserts that

M.B. Methodists Giving Thanks for Friends Sunday

Day Is Declared As "Bring A Friend to Church" as Thanks-Giving


Members of the First United
Methodist of erxico Beach will
give thanks ., and for their
friends this Sunday, November
19, a day declared "Bring A
Friend To Church Sunday," ac-
cording to John Joyner of the
church's communications com-
mittee. Friends are also invited to
the church's monthly Fellowship
Dinner and music program, Tues-
day; November 21, Joyner said.
Meanwhile, a 10-week course
on "Models of Faith:' Beyond The
Familiar" will begin Sunday dur-
ing the Bible study hour that be-
gins at 10:15 a.m.
Sunday will kick off the
church's 'Thanks-Giving" empha-
sis. 'Thanks-giving is a normal
part of the Christian life," First
Methodist Pastor Louie Andrews
said. "But during this season
-when the whole world is turning
attention to thankfulness, we
thought we would honor those we
are most thankful for-our family
and friends. The service Sunday
and dinner Tuesday will celebrate
them both,"-she said.
The Fellowship Dinner Tues-
day will follow a Southern theme,
the pastor said. The church will
provide the meat and church peo-
ple will provide vegetables and
desserts. "We know it is just be-
fore Thanksgiving and we don't
want anyone to have to work at
cooking a lot for the dinner. We
just want them to come and have
a good time," said Joyner.
Long-time church member
Lucille Holley will play piano for a
"joyful singing" program at the
Fellowship Dinner. Holley has
played regularly for programs in
nursing homes over the years.
"She plays by ear and she does


not just play with her hands," the
pastor said. "She plays with her
heart,"
The Models of Faith course
will look at the faith of Biblical
characters, some of them famil-
iar, some of them not so familiar,
teacher Frank Healy said. "We
can understand and expand our
own faith by understanding the
faith of some of these characters,'"
Healy said. "And many times


when we find, ourselves in diffi- .'
cult situations, it is the model of
faith we've seen somewhere else
that helps us deal with our own
situation," he added.
Healy, Superintendent of
Public Works for Port St. Joe, has
been teaching Sunday School at
the church for the past several
years. "I study, pray, and let the
Lord do what he wants in the -
class," he said.


"Anyone interested in visiting
the ,church is invited to the Sun-
day morning service, the Bible
Study, and the Fellowship Din-
ner," Outreach Chairman Sadie
Gardner said. The church is lo-
cated at 111 North 22nd Street in
Mexico Beach. Sunday worship
services are at 9 a.m. followed by
Bible: Study at 10:15 a.m. The
Fellowship Dinner begins at 5:30
p.m.


Failure Is One Thing That Everyone


Shares; It Is A Prinary Fault ofAll


by Michael Lister
No one is exempt from fail-
ure. In fact, of the few things that
all people have in common, fail-
ure is primary. We have all expe-
rienced the agony of defeat and
the guilt of missing the mark we
were aiming for. None of us are'
exempt from sinning against God,
ourselves, or others. And yet,
many people have emerged from
failure to attain great success.
Surprisingly, many people who
have committed the worst deeds
and experienced the greatest de-
feats were also the ones who
eventually overcame their failures
to accomplish noble feats and
make meaningful contributions.
Historically, ordinary people
have done extraordinary things.
and some of the worst sinners
have gone on to become the best

Harper Verifies That


A "He-Coon" Is Indeed


A Wily Fellow

Denials of Phone Call Charges Get
A Different Look After Perusal
NOW BUSH KNOWS WHAT THE HE-COON MEANT
SRepublican gubernatorial candidate Jeb Bush now knows what Gov.
Lawton Chiles meant when he said in a crucial debate in the closing
stages of the campaign last year that: "A he-coon is most dangerous when
he walks just before the light of day."
It wasn't long after the puzzling statement that senior voters on elec-
tion eve in some crucial Tampa Bay area counties got phony telephone
messages from Chiles' campaign callers saying Bush was a tax cheat and
opposed social security and Medicare.
The facts, of course, were that Bush had already been cleared of
cheating on taxes in two investigations' and the governor, a state official,
really has no authority on social security or Medicare, which are federal
programs.
The messages which the campaign committee now admits were made
to some 640;000 voters at a cost of some $360,000 were clearly designed
to frighten senior citizens into voting for Chiles, the liberal Democrat, and
the truth be damned. The callers did not identify themselves as Chiles'
campaign workers. Instead, they said the messages were coming from
Citizens for Tax Fairness (a group that does not exist) or the Florida
Association for Senior Citizens which exists but didn't sponsor the calls.
After a year of denials and only when subpoenas were issued for
records to get at the truth, Chiles said Tuesday before the cabinet meet-
ing he hadn't known about the phony calls (yeah), he was sorry, and "It
was a dumb thing to do."
Dumb? It probably wasn't illegal because governors and senators and
other politicians who make our laws usually exempt themselves. But
dumb? Hardly. It was the closest election in Florida history. Chiles. the
old he-coon, won by only 63,000 votes. -
Dumb Indeed! Dumb is the Florida taxpayers who have allowed the
professional politicians to talk them Into financing their dlrty-tricks cam-
paign in the guise of campaign reform. Chiles, who sponsored the law, got
$5 million of public money to tell the voters of Florida what a great leader
he is and frighten some senior citizens with half-truths enough to steal
the election.
Chiles waked abruptly away from one reporter who asked hir.if he
was considering whether to resign from office. '
The hammer fell on the election eve dirty trick because several senior
Scitizens-enraged by the phony messages-sent tapes of them to Sen.
Charlie Grist, R-St. Petersburg, who started an investigation.
One of those seniors (who isn't dumb) is Leroy Holt, of Dunedin. "If
you believe he (Chiles) didn't know about it, I've got some swamp land I'll
sell you," Holt said.
Lt Gov. Buddy MacKay who talked'Chiles into running for governor
so he could be his second banana and who is planning to run on his own
next time has admitted he knew about the calls, but didn't know phony

national significance with the withdrawal of Colin Powell as a candidate.
It's the biggest and only political story for journalists and other opinion
makers to spin their theories on.
With no knight in shining armor in sight, Florida GOP voters get the
limelight to pick the sure front-runner to oppose Democratic President
Bill Clinton who lost narrowly in Florida to George Bush and deems a win
this time as absolutely necessary for his re-election next year.
Polls show Majority Senate Leader Bob Doyle, R-Kansas, a big winner
for the nomination with.Powell out of the race. U. S. Sen. Phil Gramm,
Texas, and former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander are dead heats for
second place.
A weak showing by Dole could hurt his campaign and make Gramm
and Alexandei viable. Other political messages will be drawn, 'of course.
A signal could be sent that the conservative Christian influence in the
party is weakening if Pennsylvania Sen Arlen Specter or Indiana Sen.
Richard Lugar make a strong showing. They have both challenged the
religious right.;
A sure winner in the straw vote already is Jeb Bush, younger son of
George Bush, who is chairman of the event. Many say Bush, 42, is the
natural for a second run in 1998'against Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay or a, un

BROGAN WOULD TIE LOTTERY TO SCHOOLS
Education Commissioner Frank Brogar{ tied state lottery money to
specific school programs in a plan released Monday to restore confidence
In Florida's troubled school system.
SFoes contend legislators use lottery profits to fund prisons. juvenile
justice, roads and other state concerns rather than on education as vot-
ers were told they would do when the Florida lottery election was held.
"It's the question most asked me as travel around the state." Brogan
said.
He said he will propose a bill requiring lawmakers to match lottery
money dollar for dollar over a seven year period with general revenue
money. Lottery money would then be taken out of the general education
budget and earmarked specifically for pre-kindergarten instruction, tech-
nology in schools and college scholarships for above-average students.
'There's just one problem. Where are the dollars going ,to come
from?," asked State Sen. Karen Johnson, D-Inverness, who has a similar
bill to limit lottery money to pre-kindergarten programs. technology and
school safety. -
BLACKS WANT HOUSE ATTENTION
Eleven of 15 black members of the Florida House sent a letter to
bemocratic.Speaker 1996 nominee Buzz Ritchie withdrawing their sup-
port unless they get some attention on affirmative action and the redraw-
ing of Tampa-area Senate District 21 to assure the election of a minority.
'They will listen to us if they want to remain as House leaders," Rep.
Les Miller, D-Tampa, said.
Ritchie, D-Pensacola, has' secured enough pledges to assure his
selection as speaker if Demociats maintain their slim majority of 63-57
over Republicans, but he has to have the support of the black caucus
members to do it.
The letter listed issues the blaci caucus wanted House democrats to
:back, including education fundingTor prison inmates, increased financial
support of private black colleges., and spending for juvenile justice pro-

Cooking in the 90's Ha

Quicker better ; Try i
People's cooking and heating habits have changed over the
last several years. They've begun eating lighter, healthier
meals and are comfortable doing so. After realizing this
change in their own habits, professional cooks and food writ-
ers Richard Sax and Marie Simmons got the idea for a book.
SIn "Lighter, Quicker, Better:- Cooking for the Way We Eat
Today" (William Morrow), they provide a common-sense
approach to leading a healthier lifestyle.
"This is not; a book for people on diets. It's a book to help
peopleeat healthier meals," says Sax. "We'did notstart out to
be healthier cooks; the change happened on its own. It just
feels right to eat lighter foods."
Sax emphasizes that, in the recipes,'he and Simmons did not
cut out fat completely. "Fat adds flavor. If we cut the fat, we .
cut the flavor, and people won't be satisfied. If they're not sat-
isfied, 'then they'll eat ice cream and cookies."
When cooking lighter meals, it is 'er> imponran to main-
tain the dishes' flavors. To do this, Sax recommends concen-
trating on ingredients that are inherently flavorful, like roast-
Sed peppers, citrus juices and zests, fresh herbs, vinegars, and
mustards. 'Roasted garlic, which, is sweet and mellow, also
adds a deeper taste to foods.
A theme of the book is "everything in moderation." If peo-
pie practice moderation, they can eat everything from sand-.
wiches to meats to desserts, according to Sax.
"Everyone says sandwiches arefi't healthy, but that's
because there is an overload of meats and cheeses," he
explains. "People should use less fat turkey or smoked
turkey, Swiss cheese, and sandwich spreads. Instead of may-
onnaise with tuna salad, they, can use a spread of reduced-
calorie mayonnaise. with low-fat yogurt and mustard or
herbs."
As for meat, the authors aren't saying not to eat it. Rather,
they suggest moving it to the outside of the plate and using it
as a flavoring, instead of as the center of the meal. To help
'people cul do'%n on the amount of meat they eat, Sax and
,Simmons hjae included a section of meatless main dishes in
their book.
To finish a meal in style, the book includes sections about
desserts, cakes-'and baked goods. "We include desserts that
.naturally adapt to low-fat versions, like devil's food cake,
which can keep its flavor by increasing the amount of cocoa

Sen. Jim Hargrett, D-Tampa, are frustrating black caucias members,
Miller said.
House Speaker Peter Wallace opposed a settlement the caucus
favored. A new agreement has been proposed that Wallace and Hargrett

BINGO HALLS CLOSED BY THE STATE
Nine commercial bingo halls in the Tampa Bay area were labeled
"mini-casinos"' and shut down by a statewide grand jury Tuesday. Five
arrests were made on racketeering charges.
The grand jury urged lawmakers to enact reforms making more bingo
winnings go to charities as designed by present state law. It accused the
bingo halls of total disregard of laws enacted- to prevent illegal gambling.
Most significant, the report said, was the vast amount of money made
by the halls in comparison to the "crumbs" passed on to charities.
The halls were all located in the Tampa Bay area ranging north from
Dunnellon to North Fort Myers to the south, and Avon Park and Lakeland
to the east.

program which lets you get cash

AARP gets more inquiries about
reverse mortgages than any other

on the topic but, in the meantime,
here are some basics you need to
know:
There is.one main government-
backed reverse mortgage program,
from FHA, offered through a number
of lending institutions in any state.
AARP can provide you with a list of
such lenders.
The largest private reverse mort-
gage program in the county is called
"Ever Yours," from Household
Senior Services, which is available
in this state and many others.
*While there are significant restric-
tions on the uses and amounts avail-


able from the federal program,
Household's plan has high loan lim-
its (up to $250,000) and simply gives
you a book of checks which you can
write for what you need, when you
need it.
Your credit history and income
are not relevant all you need is sig-
nificant equity in your home and be
age 62 or older.
You need to ask ANY reverse
mortgage lender the right questions
or you'll be unable to fairly compare
programs. Sometimes one program's
interest rate is lower but there are
hidden fees you don't see at first
glance which actually make the total'
cost higher!

Ilse Newell Fund Opens Its Tenth Season With


Production of the Operetta "H.M.S. Pinafore"


The Ilse Newell Fund for the
Performing Arts of the Apalachi-
cola Area Historical Society opens
its Tenth Anniversary Season
with a production of the long run-
ning favorite of the famous Gil-
bert and Sullivan operetta,
"H.M.S. Pinafore" at 4 p.m., Sun-
day, November 19th at Trinity
Church in Apalachicola. This de-
lightful satire has been an Ameri-
can favorite since 1878.
The unfailing melodiousness,
resourceful musicianship, and
sense of parody of the composer,
Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900)
were so well matched with the
satire and verbal ingenuity of Sir
William Gilbert (1836-1911), that
they established a' distinctive
form of operetta. Gilbert was the
master of a genuinely artful satir-
ical style for presenting contem-
porary behavior that formed its
own truth. As a librettist, Gilbert
was outstanding in handling
words and casting them into mu-
sical shapes that provided Sulli-
van the opportunities for a bur-
lesque of musical conventions.
Gilbert was educated as an
attorney. His career in drama be-
gan with 'The Little Duck and the
Great Quack." He started working
with Sullivan in 1870 with Rich-
ard D'Oyly -Carte staging their
productions in 1875, including
"H.M.S. Pinafore" in 1878. He
died in 1911 of a heart attack af-
ter rescuing a woman from
drowning.
Sullivan, the son of an Irish,
musician who became bandmas-
ter at the Royal Military College
and an Italian' mother, composed
the music for his first comic op-
era with Bumand's "Cox and
Box," in 1867. He 'also, wrote
many hymn : tunes, including,
"Onward, Christian Soldiers," and
the song, "The Lost Chord." -He
was knighted in 1883. Gilbert
and Sullivan were estranged from
1889 to 1893 over what Sullivan
regarded as the artificial nature
of Gilbert's plots and "stupid
lines," and Sullivan's desire to
compose other types of music.
,, The action in "H.M.S. Pina-
fore" takes place on the, ship's
quarterdeck, -off Portsmouth,
England. The Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph
Porter, K.C.B., (Knight Command-
er of the Bath), First Lord of the
Admiralty, who "never thinks at
all," is played by Wallace Floyd,
who advises, us to "stick close to
rour desk and never 'go to: sea,
and you all may be rulers of the
Queen'g Nivee." 'Then'gle" three
cheers, and one cheer more, for
the hardy captain of the Pina-
fore," while, Glenn Totman as
Captain Corcoran who is "hardly
ever sick at sea, "tries to arrange
a match between his daughter
Josephine, Melea Gunter, "the
merry merry maiden, the much
too merry maiden," and Sir Jo-
seph. But Josephine loves Ralph,
pronounced Raif, Rackstraw, an
Able Seaman "of low condition,"
Michael Guthrie, who returns her
affection. Virginia Harrison plays
cousin Hebe, 'one of Sir Joseph's'
"sisters and his cousins, whom
he:reckons: ip by dozens, and his
aunts!" Among those who arrive
aboard Sir Joseph's barge and
"its crowd of blushing beauty,"
are Olga Nichols, Margaret

with warbling wild" as the carpen-
ter. But "never mind the why and
wherefore, love can level ranks
and therefore,! everything goes
from bad to Worse until "oh joy,
oh rapture unforeseen, the cloudy
