for the Holiday
Most of Port St Joe and Gulf
County will be completely closed
down Thursday, in observance of
the Thanksgiving holiday. Most
stores will be shut down for
Thanksgiving day with some ser-
vices being shut down Friday
All government offices will be
closed Friday as well, according
to spokesmen at the Courthouse
and the City Hall. The U.S. Post
Office will be open Friday. All lo-
cal State offices will be closed for
the week end.
The day after Thanksgiving
normally announces the begin-
ning of the Christmas shopping
season, with stores dealing in
Christmas merchandise shifting
into high gear for the big rush.
Banks will be open on Friday, as
the Federal Reserve Bank rules
forbid financial institutions gov-
erned by them from closing two
normal business days in a row.
AN AMERICAN HOLIDAY,
Thanksgiving has been an
uniquely American holiday for al-
most as long as there has been
an America. As any elementary
school student knows the first
Thanksgiving was celebrated by
thepilgrilm settlers at James-
town, Massachusetts and the In-
dians. The day marked the event
of ithe first harvest of crops in the
Thanksgiving first became a
legal holiday when Abraham Lin-
coln was president after many
years of being an unofficial day of
observance by acclamation.
Thanksgiving day as we celebrate
it was established as the fourth
Thursday in November only in re-
cent years, by President Franklin
The city police in both Port
St Joe and Wewahitchka will
both have men on dutv for the
holiday, as will the Gulf County
Sheriffs Office, but some person-
nel of the departments will be ex-
periencing a holiday, with only a
skeleton crew on duty.
Police will be monitoring traf-
fic closely, with many people go-
ing to and from visiting with rela-
tives. The police and sheriff urge
everyone to drive carefully during
the holiday and don't become a
statistic. Holidays are normally
the safest time of the year for
drivers and pedestrians in Gulf
County. Sheriff Frank McKeithen,
speaking for all'law enforcement
in the county, urges that you
take care and maintain that repu-
tation this Thanksgiving.

According to investigating
officer Sgt Terry Carr of the
Port St. Joe Police Department,
Troy Davonne Williams, 17, of

a northerly direction on Garri-

miles per hbur in a 30-MPH
He overtook and attempted
to pass a second vehicle travel-

as the vehicle started a left
turn into 10th Street. Williams
took evasive action to avoid a
collision, and as a result his
1992 Hyundai flipped over on
its side and slid for some 221
feet before coming to rest in
the Barnes' yard.
Williams and his passen-

L Hunker Down with Kes
Let Us Be
For A Land of Plenty
As we observe Thanksgiving in our nation today, we
all should pause to express our thanks to God for all the
many blessings we have experienced as Americans
during the past year. In spite of the bumpy times, the
unfortunate experiences we have all been involved with,
it has been a good year.
In spite of the trial of the century occupying much of
our attention, the announced intention to sell the paper
mill, a visit from Hurricane Opal, turmoil in government
about how to get out of the financial mess we are in,
revealed political dirty tricks and the beginning of a
national campaign, the United States is STILL a nation
others are trying to, become a part of, by any means at
We find it hard to commiserate with people who are
worried about' a few inconveniences when there are so
many people in the world who would give their right arm
to be able to have the type problems we complain about.
Many are dying everyday-trying to get to this land of
milk and honey-on inner tubes, in overcrowded boats,
over walls, through fences; any way they can. If we are
suffering nearly as bad as some doom sayers claim, we're
the only ones who, know it!
We could live in fa country where medical care is a
needle jabbed in our neck, or arm; where a home is a few
sheets of tin, or cardboard, held up by a couple of poles;
where sanitation or proper waste disposal is a pause in
the woods, or an open ditch running down the middle of
a dirt path in front of the hovel where you forced to

There is plenty to be thankful for thisyear. One of the
things we can be most thankful about is that we live in a
nation which still pauses one full day each year to give
God thanks for what He has blessed us with. Considering
our drift toward removing God from our public lives, the
growth of crime in our society .'.!. pausing to give thanks
to Him means there still might be hope for us. We can
certainly be thankful for that!
We complain about our growing medical expense,
higher prices, ecological danger, disappearing acreage,
water shortages, floods, fires, earthquakes, crop failures,
lack of crop supports, etc.a,'nd etc. If there is nothing to.
complain about, we'll invent something! But, it only takes
a holiday observance such as Thanksgiving to bring us
back to the reality of just how much we are truly blessed!

Jess, Don't Worry About The
Pine Cones-I'll Pick 'em Up
Over the past several years
at this particularly thankful sea-
son I believe I've offered up my
heartfelt thanks to God, Mother,
family, friends,- country, apple
pie, Pilgrims, falling leaves,
maize, and the forty hour work-
week. Today, I'd thought we

"things" we ,should be thankful

I can tell you right off I'm
thankful that empty cardboard

not have a bomb in it! It's been
sitting out by the road for a week
now. I spied it right off (it's a big
box) and immediately called out

Folks, that Busch Beer car-
ton spent the weekend on my
front lawn. By now this thing
has turned into a contest-I'm,
not going to say a word and I'm
not going to pick it up!
It was still there this morn-
ing-which sets me to some more
reasoning-which leads me to
consider the options here: (A)
Jesse didn't hear me; (B) Jesse
heard me, he just doesn't want
to bother with the box; (C) Jesse
thinks it's not "his" yard; (D) It's
a '90's thing; (E) Those ACT and
SAT tests don't mean a thing and
all of his teachers have been ly-
ing to me for years-Jess is real-
ly dumb as a door nail......

It's Only A Little More Than A Month'til Christmas
IT'S THANKSGIVING already
and that means it is only slightly
more than four weeks until
Christmas. Where did the year
When did it pass by that
week end when we were going to
take it easy and do nothing ex-
cept what we felt like doing? Such
a week end, now and then is good
for the stress which might bother
you, or your blood pressure, or
your bad attitude, or a number of
things most of us don't heed.
Where did that time go when
we were going to take off, relax
and take a trip somewhere? We
were going to do that very thing
'"tomorrow" or "next week" .
Well all those "tomorrows" and
"next weeks" are about gone this
year, and we still haven't done
that R & RI
I don't know about you, but I
had full intentions of getting my
gift-buying done before December
this year. I was even intending to
make some of my Christmas gifts
out in my shed, this year. The
year has about slipped away all
the way to Christmas and not the
first gift has been purchased....
I KNOW IT IS getting near
Christmas because most of the
-stores have already put on their
Christmas face, put up the green
garlands and dug up the Bing
Crosby Christmas music records.
Of course some of the stores
started their Christmas promo-
tion before Hallowe'en. The Wal-
marts, the Sam's, the K-Marts
and the like all of which I
never visit nor expect to, even at
this Christmas season. If you re-
ceive a gift from me, you can bet
the farm it didn't come from one
of these stores!
At a meeting last Thursday
morning, in which the merchants
were being asked for their input
to the Vision team visiting our
town last week, one merchant re-
marked it was not feasible for her
to stock a certain item. She re-
marked, "My flow of traffic would
dictate that I buy only a dozen or
so items of that particular mer-
chandise and it naturally makes
my price a few cents higher. The
super stores, on the other hand,
buy that item by the truckloads
and the supplier gives them a
price break, part of which they
pass on to the customer."
Well, I mulled that one over
in my mind and came' up with the
best answer I could think of for
that situation. It went something
like this: I can walk into that per-
son's store and immediately know
right where that item is located. If
I don't, I can find out with only a
quick question to the owner
across the store and she will tell
me--or better yet, show me just
where it is located.
I would have to walk through
a mile of crowded aisles, looking
at crowded shelf after crowded
shelf in the super store to -find
the item; taking maybe a half
hour just to find my item, not to
mention another half hour wast-
ed trying to pay for my purchase.
I can do a lot of things with
that wasted hour.
As far as I am behind in do-
ing the. things I want to do, just
think how far I would be behind if
I wasted that much time looking
for something in a super store.
Another thing to consider; I
can bring it back to my local
store and get a replacement if I
later find out it is faulty.
BUT, I DIDNT start out to
give you a diatribe in reasoning. I
started out to fill this column,
early, on a few thoughts about
time slipping by without my get-
ting ready for the Christmas sea-
I'm not going to think about
that situation right now. It's
Thanksgiving now 'and time to
dwell on that particular holiday.
One holiday at a time.
Thanksgiving sure has
changed at our house. We're still
just as thankful as ever that we
'have made it this far in as good a
shape as we are in and have as
much of the good life as we have.
We are still just as thankful that
all our children are doing well, in
good health and have a good
I can feel the time is coming
when this situation might not be
so expected as a "given" for even
the American family. Suddenly,
good jobs are not as easy to find.
Suddenly, good health care is
starting to erode. Suddenly, a
home of your own is even being
priced out of the reach of many
new families. Suddenly, children
and youth can't expect to come
home to a mother in the house;
they have to work alongside Dad
in order to make ends meet.
BUT THIS TIME of the year
seems to serve to make each of
us pause to realize that we hav,
the best of what life has to offer
in this old world today. Maybe if
we stop majoring on what we
don't have and offer a little more
thanks for what we do have,
things will come more into per-
spective. Maybe, too, it will en-
courage us to work and try just a
little harder. to appreciate what
the Lord has sent our way.

Coach Vernon Eppinette said that
he was very pleased with Latri-
"Latrika came through the
mile point exactly on pace and
struggled a little the second mile.
Most of her struggle was fighting
the effects of a bad cold. I was so
happy with her ability to run her
pace early, because being just a
ninth grader, it's easy to get
caught up in the state atmos-
phere and do too much."
"With' the experience she's.

a great future ahead of her," Ep-

If you have an infected tooth
in which most of the supporting
bone remains intact, it can prob-
ably be saved, even if the infec-
tion has spread to the pulp or
nerve of the tooth. This can be
accomplished through root canal
In this procedure, the pulp
of the tooth is removed and the
root canal sterilized. It is then
filled with a material to replace
the lost pulp. This is usually gut-
ta-percha, a rubber-like sub-
stance that remains relatively in-
ert, which is cemented into the
After the root canal has
been filled, the final step is to
repair the opening in the crown
of the tooth. The choice of resto-
ration material will depend on
the amount of tooth structure re-
maining, as well as the tooth's
position in your mouth.
Root canal therapy is more
expensive than tooth extraction,
naturally. However, it is worth
any amount of sacrifice to save
any of your natural teeth. Any
dentist worth his salt will agree
that an artificial tooth will never
be as good, effective or useful

Wewa Medical Clinic Grows From One Doctor
Operation To Presence in Four Communities
The Wewa;.Medical Clinic has
grown from a small one doctor
operation in 1988 to a four
county operation, serving the pri-
mary medical needs of a lot of ru-
ral folks, Jim McKnight told the
Rotary Club last Thursday. With

ics and are involved in bringing a

When I go to visit her, they hiss at

the cats it will be me, not the cats
who go. I love my girlfriend, but I'd

t Dear Cat Hater,
Not everyone likes a certain
breed of animal or any animal at
all. Your local vet might be able to
give some insight on why the
S felines act like they do. Your girl-
friend apparently loves cats, and
these cats in particular. It sounds
like she isn't willing to budge on
this issue. However, you might
find ways to deal with the behav-
ior of the cats. Removing the ani-
mtals to another room when you
visit might end the hissing and
the biting, but this is only a short
term solution. As you mention the
possibility of marriage, .this
"small' problem might be a taste
of things to come. If she is this
inflexible on this issue, there
might be other, bigger issues she
is just as inflexible about, and it's
better to know now than to find
out after you've married her. She
might be willing to participate in
some couple's counseling to
explore where you both stand on
issues that are important to you.
If you still find that you want to
have a serious relationship, there
are ways to deal with this prob-
lem. Good luck to you as .you
attempt to resolve your "furry"

Handle And Prepare Food Safely To Prevent Holiday Disasters
Tips Given on Everything FromPreparatioins of Turkey to Storage of Leftovers to Making That Batch of Holiday Eggnog
by Bob Crawford
Commissioner of Agriculture
The fall and winter holidays
are upon us, and that means
bountiful feasts and fun for many
families. But, festivity can turn to
misfortune if there's an incident
of food poisoning. Food poisoning
is caused by bacteria or their tox-
ins which in most cases are un-
detectable by sight, smell or
taste. Millions of people are af-
fected by food poisoning each
It is Important to practice
safe food handling and prepara-
tion methods throughout the
year. The hectic holidays can
present even more possibilities
for food poisoning at home: larg-
er-than-usual meals often are be-
ing prepared; new recipes and
cooking techniques may be tried;
buffets may be set out for guests;
large amounts of leftovers may re-
main for additional meals; food
may be transported from one
home to another, etc.
With the potential for food
poisoning increased during the
holidays, It is especially impor-
tant to remember safe food han-
dling and preparation practices.
Here are a few Ups:

Thaw turkey in the refrigera-
tor, not on the counter top ...
Room temperature encourag-
es the growth of bacteria, so de-
frost your turkey in the refrigera-
tor rather than on the counter
top. Allow one day of defrosting
for each five pounds of turkey
weight. You can safely refrigerate
the thawed turkey another day or
two, but don't let the juices drip
on other foods. To reduce defrost-
ing time, wrap the bird in a wa-
terproof plastic bag and sub-,
merge it in water. Cold water
slows the bacterial growth that
may occur in the thawed outer
portions while the inner areas are
still thawing. Change the water:
every 30 minutes.
Cook the stuffing separate
! from the turkey...
It's safest, to. cook stuffing
separately rather than Inside the
turkey cavity. But, cooks who in-
sist on cooking the stuffing inside
the turkey :should keep safety
precautions inr mind. Stuffing
placed inside an uncooked turkey
promotes bacterial growth, so
don't stuff a turkey before storing
it in the refrigerator. Instead, pre-
pare the stuffing ingredients the
day before and refrigerate them.

A series of new quick-reference cards for agricultural pro-

Florida's Instituteof Food and Agricultural Sciences.
House Plant Pest
Control Made Easy
If you discover bugs attacking
your plants, you may be tempted
to reach for the nearest pesticide.
But that could be a big mistake
on two counts. In your haste, you
might apply a chemical that
would do more harm than good.
You might not even need a pesti-
cide. Those who believe chemicals
offer the only sure solution to
house plants pest attacks are at
least partially wrong. While coim-
mercial pesticides usually are
essential for coping with severe
infestation, many insect problems
on house plants can be controlled
through regular inspection and
proper care. If you'll follow a few
easy steps, you can get rid of most
common indoor plant pests before
they have a chance to reach criti-
cal population levels.
Vigilance and caution are
basic keys to minimizing house
plant pest injury. As soon as you
obtain a new plant, inspect It
carefully, to make sure It's free of
insects. When:you take it Indoors,
it's a good idea to isolte 'it for
about a month placing it near the
rest of your collection. If the plant
is infested, the isolation period
will give you time to recognize and
correct the problem, before the
problems spread to other plants.
Also, when potting plants, you
should always use sterilized soil
and containers. This will reduce
the danger of attack by soil born

organisms. If a4 pest problem
develops, there are several things
you can do. When only a few
insects are seen, the simplest
solution is to physically remove
them. Large pests, like caterpil-
..lars, slugs, and snails, can easily
be picked off by hand although
they are rather small, such vil-
lains as aphids, mealybugs can be
seen well enough to be removed
with tweezers. Another way to get
rid of aphids and mealybugs is to
dip a cotton ball in rubbing alco-
hol and stroke it gently on all
infested areas. But, use only a
small amount. Too much alcohol
will burn foliage. You also can
control insects by spraying plants
with a forceful stream of room
temperature water-a stream
strong enough to wash the bugs
away, without damaging the
foliage. It you spray your plants
about once every two weeks, you'll
eliminate nearly all of the com-
mon pests. Most insects are found
on the undersides of leaves. So,
spray these areas well. Giving
your plants frequent showers also
helps keep them clean and attrac-
Washing plants with a mild
soap solution is another way to
control insects. Mix two tea-
. spoons of a mild detergent in a of
water, and apply the solution with
a soft brush or cloth. You'll prob-
ably want to wash plants out-
doors, or in a large sink. For very
large plants, that are difficult to
move, you can use a sponge or
toothbrush to clean them. Most
plants benefit from a thorough
washing twice a year. But,
remember that some species can't
Tolerate moisture on their leaves.
So, you should not use showers
or baths to control pests on such
All of these methods will
effectively remove aphids, mealy-
bugs, and scales from your
plants. They're simple and inex-
pensive. And, if they're employed
before pest populations become
larger you probably won't have to
use stronger measres. However,
in cases of very heavy infestations
and certain resistant pests, it may
be necessary to apply a chemical
pesticide. If so, check with your

Sixth Graders Visit Kolomoki
The WES sixth graders trav-
eled to Blakely, Georgia on No-
vember 9 to visit the historic ar-
chaeolQgical site at the Kolomokl
Mounds State Historic Park.
There were seven Indian mounds
that were built during the 12th
and 13th, centuries by the Swift
Creek and Weeden Island Indi-
Students also visited the
courthouse; square that contains
peanut monuments from one of
the largest peanut producing are-
as in the 'country. A covered
bridge completed this long, but
interesting day. Teachers Debbie
and Bryan Baxley and Rebecca

students on the trip.
Words To Live By, .
Here's some more wisdom
from Mother To Daughter ..
"Failure. is not falling down;
failure is not getting up."
~.If you -don't make mistakes
you don't make anything."
"Don't think about the cost of
doing something; think about the
cost of doing nothing."
"It you .don't think well of
yourself, no one will think any-
thing of you."
In-Service Held For Substitutes
Mr. Kelley and several teach-
ers at the elementary school re-
cently field a mini in-service for
would-be substitutes. Things to
make life a little easier for the
substitutes were given.
"She Was From My Hometown"
Maybe you heard it from the
national TV coverage or read it ini
the paper, the teacher from Giles-
County. Tennessee that was.shot
and killed by a student.
Well, when I called home on
Friday night, my sister, who is
also a teacher, said that everyone
was so upset because a teacher
from our county was the teacher.
that had been killed where she
now lived. It was the first case in
Tennessee history that a teacher
had been killed in the classroom
and a sad day for all'of us. Our
sympathy goes out to her family.

Parents Make The Difference
Raising children today isn't
easy. As your children grow older,
it's natural for them to challenge
you. Often, it seems easier to just
let them have their way. But, chil-
dren need limits, and they need
parents to guide them.
One of the secrets of good pa-
renting is to find the right bal-
ance between love and discipline.
Here are some secrets of effective

have a Happy and Safe Thanks-
Children need a generous
amount of your time and atten-

often misbehave. That's why it

The Student Government As-

School is making plans to sal-
vage this year's Hurricane Opal
Homecoming during the upcom-
ing district basketball opener
with Florida High School. The
S.G.A.. is inviting players from
teams of the two ;previous dec-
ades to match up in a free throw
shoot-out during halftime.
The S.G.A. is trying to con-
tact Corey Daniels, Ronald Dan-
iels, Lorenzo Daniels, Kim Davis,
Preston Gant, Johnny Jenkins,
Terry Larry, Wayne Thomas, Ari-
on Ward, and Calvin Watson from
the 1976 (15-12) team; and Dex-

Harris, Josh Jenkins, Michael
Lewis, Robert Lowry, Fred Owens,
Stan Peters, and Doug Robinson
from the 1986 (19-8) District
Champions to invite them to join

This season's version of the
Tiger Sharksis making a bid for
their third consecutive trip to the
state tournament and is return-
ing with a lot of seasoned players
to make that goal more than sim-
ply wishful thinking.
If you have not taken the op-
portunity to watch Coach Vern
Eppinette's charges play, you
have missed some exciting com-
petition. The Florida High game is
an important step toward another
district championship, last year's
playoff game between the two be-
ing decided in the final seconds.
When the varsity tips it off
beneath the dome on Friday, De-
cember 1, it will be the third
game of the evening. The middle
school team plays at 5:00 p.m.,
the junior varsity at 6:30, and the
varsity hits the floor at 8:00. One
price buys it all! Great basketball,
three games for one, and halftime
fun-can anybody think of any-
thing, better to be doing on an au-
tumn Friday night in St Joe?

Make That Thanksgiving Turkey More "Taster-Friendly" and Different
When crisp, clear days become
shorter, leaves turn red and gold; and
frost covers the pumpkins each morn-
ing, it's time to head for the kitchen.
There may or may not be scientific
evidence which proves that cold weath-
er doubles one's appetite, but for many
entering their home after a hard day's
work, the smell of a turkey roasting in
the oven is sure to make their stomach
chum and growl.
On Thanksgiving, hunger pangs can
be even more profound, since most
people eat a light breakfast in anticipa-
tion of a feast, and turkey is only one of
many smells emanating from the
kitchen. Turkey, however, is clearly the
overpowering scent, capable of luring
any number of men away from a foot-
ball game in order to "test" any loose,
cooling morsels and, possibly, even
help out in the kitchen.
Maybe you would like to try some-
thing a little different for Thanksgiving.
It's nothing as radical as switching to
chicken; it's a new way of cooking
turkey a method handed down from
generation to generation of
Thanksgivings on the farm.
.There may not be a better teacher for
country-style roast turkey than Jane
Watson Hopping, author of
Lynn Haven, Wewa

Celebration of Harvest, Home, and
Country Cooking" (Villard Books).
With her fifth cookbook, Hopping has
become a pioneer among lovers of nos-
talgic, old-fashioned cooking and
"The Many Blessings Cookbook"
celebrates autumn with down-home
recipes that evoke the warmth and spir-
it of the changing seasons. They are
easy to prepare and were handed down
from mother to daughter. These time-
honored recipes are mixed with her
rural, homespun wisdom and memories
of growing up on farms in Missouri and
Oregon, as well as poems and pictures

TURKEY WITH ORANGE
AND GOLDEN GLOW GRAVY
S1 12- to 14-pound bird

4 -or more whole stalks of celery
1 whole clove garlic, peeled

Black pepper, 4 teaspoon
1 tablespoon or more finely pulver-
ized Mediterranean oregano
Orange Pecan Dressing
Golden Glow Gravy
Preheat oven to 350 F. Set out a large
roasting pan with a tightfitting cover.
Rinse turkey inside and out with cold
water. Wipe with a damp cloth. Stuff
cavity with shallots, stalks of celery,
clove of garlic, and apple. Rub entire
surface with butter and then rub salt,
pepper, and oregano into it. In a small
bowl,' set giblets (excluding liver) and
neck aside; refrigerate for making broth
to use in dressing and gravy.
Set bird in roasting pan, breast side
up. Pour 2 or more cups of water'
around the base of the bird. Cover.
Roast until done, checking now and
then to see if more water is needed,
about 2% hours. To test for doneness,
insert meat thermometer into densest
meat of the inner thigh near the hip
bone or groin, since that is the last
place to be done in the bird. Be sure
not to touch bone with tip of ther-
When done, the temperature should
read 170 F to 180 F. Or you may test
for doneness by pressing the drum-
stick: When done, the meat will feel
soft and the drumstick should twist
out of joint; also, the meat will have
shrunk up the bone so that the joint
where the foot was removed will be
Once done, remove bird from oven
and let sit 15 to 20 minutes, which
makes carving easier. Meanwhile,
remove giblets and neck from refriger-
ator and place in a medium saucepan.
Season to taste with a little salt and
pepper; add a. slice or two of winter-
cooking onion and cup or more fresh
celery leaves. Cover with water and
simmer until done; remove meat from
pan; discard vegetables; remove neck
meat from bone and finely chop all
meat (reserve all or part of meat if
adding either to dressing or gravy).

GOLDEN GLOW GRAVY
Makes I quart or more,
After the turkey is done, take the bird
out of the roasting pan and put it on a
large platter. Cover it with a clean kitchen
towel and let it sit. Put the roasting pan in
a cold place until the fat is firm enough to
lift off the pan drippings,
Transfer the drippings to a saucepan
large enough for making gravy. Add
water, salt, and pepper'to the drippings
to enhance the flavor. Minced giblets
and minced neck meat may be added at
While bringing the broth to a boil,
caramelize sugar in a small cast-iron fry-
ing pan by heating it until it bubbles and
turns dark brown (care must be taken
not, to bum the sugar, which would make'
it bitter). While still hot, pour the
caramelized sugar into the broth. Spoon
a little of the broth into the frying parnto
wash all of the sugar out.
Stir the gravy until it is a rich golden-
brown color. To thicken, add cornstarch
(2 tablespoons, moistened with cold
water, for each cup broth). Continue stir-
ring for about 5 minutes to sufficiently
thicken the gravy. For added flavor, add
Butter or margarine to the hot gravy. Stir
it until it's melted and incorporated into
