Board Gets Governmental



Attention On River Dredging

Present Methods
Believed To Be
Damaging River

Bed, Banks


The Gulf County Commission
is already getting some response
from their decision to oppose the
Corps of Engineers dredging policy
on the Apalachicola River.
Board Chairman Billy Traylor
S" told the Commissioners that he
had been contacted by Congress-
man Pete Peterson and that he
was sending a representative to
tour the river and go over the
board's objections to the Corps'
dredging policy.
At the board's first meeting in
February the board passed a reso-
lution, presented by Wayne Child-
S. Army Corps of Engineers on the
Apalachicola River. Childers told
the board the Corps had been
back cutting the piles of dredge
spoil along the river's edge, and al-
lowing them to fill back into the
river system. He said the actions
were damaging the river bottom
and destroying aquatic life which
4` was being covered by the infiltra-
tion of sand.
C ,.The board was unanimous in
their support of the resolution
which also included a provision
requesting that the Corps' five-
sued.
Traylor said he would take Pe-
terson's representative on ,a tour
of the river and show him "first
hand" what is happening to the
river system.

County Ponders Aquaculture

County Board Agrees to "Take a Look" at Project


Gulf County's commercial
fishermen may be able to grasp a
ray of hope for the future of the
"banned" profession, through
aquaculture if a group represent-
ing the fishermen and the Gulf
County Commission Is successful
in its efforts.
Third generation commercial
fisherman and president of Raf-
field Fisheries. Gene Raffeld, rep-
resenting commercial harvesters
and retailers of the county, ad-'
dressed the board during Tues-
day's meeting seeking their sup-
port (via resolution) to assist the
local Oshermen in aggressively
pursuing aquaculture in Gulf
County.
Rafield reminded the board of
the county's past involvement in
the seafood industry prior to the
net ban enactment last year. "Gulf
County traditionally led the state
in pounds of seafood harvested
ahnually, averaging between 20-
25 million pounds."
But all of that, of course, has
changed with the net ban amend-
ment approved by Florida voters
on the November 1994 ballot
which become law July 1. 1995.
Since that time the industry, other
than legal trawl net use. has prac-
tically been non-existent in the
Gulfs waters. Raffeld said only
50-60 thousand pounds of com-
mercial fish had been harvested in
Gulf County since the ban had
gone into effect.
S"We're all battling, trying to
figure out how we're-going to, stay-
in business." Raffleld said. He
went on to point out the "tremen-
dous" potential aquaculture could
have for the county, asking the
board to support the group
through a resolution.
The board offered their full
support to the resolution which
calls for the board to aid commer-
cial fishermen in locating and ap-
plying for any grant or other finan-
cial aid to explore aquaculture in
Gulf County. to obligate a portion
of Gulf County's CDBG revolving
loan account to hire a consultant/
lobbyist to help examine, inspect.
analyze and establish aquaculture
programs in Gulf County, and to
contact the pertinent elected ofi-
cials requesting their assistance to
achieve the goals. The board also
voted to advertise for applications
to fill the proposed consultant/
lobbyist position.


Gene Raffield of Raffield Fisheries, makes case for
"aquaculture" before County Commission Tuesday.


Board Chairman Billy Traylor
and Commissioner Warren Yeager
told the group that they had al-
ready got the ballrolling by asking
County Administrator Larry Wells
and Gulf County Extension Agent
Roy Lee Carter to start looking
into aquaculture, both from the fi-
nancial and the practical applica-'
tion angles.
Raffield told The Star that
there were several feasible species
of fish and sea life that could be
farm raised here. Clams, sea cu-
cumbers, scallops and fish (such
as redflsh, grouper, and pompano)
could be raised in St. Joseph Bay


without damaging it n any way.
Marketable fish are currently
being raised throughout the
world, mostly in the Far East, by,
pen culture. The process involves
building a holding pen that is
placed in the water, along with fin-
gerlings of the species being
raised, which are fed (in their nat-
ural environment) until they ma-
ture to a harvestable size.
Raffield also pointed out that
the United States Is behind the
rest of the world in aquaculture.
noting that the U. S. imports 50-
60%, of the shrimp consumed
here, the majority of which are
produced through aquaculture.

Congratulations

WE WANT TO JOIN our voice with the many others who
have already expressed their satisfaction over the Chamber of
Commerce's selection for the Citizen of the Year and for its first
ever choice to receive the Lifetime Achievement award. We think
Rev. Zedoc Baxter exemplifies a "Citizen of the Year" and George
Core is a fitting choice to receive the Lifetime Achievement
award.
These are both selfless men. They are ready to help others in
any way they can without asking, "What's in it for me?" There's
an old cliche which goes something like this: It's surprising what
we can accomplish if we don't care who gets credit for doing it!
Zedoc and George don't care who gets the credit, so long as
people, or an organization which deserves our efforts, gets it.
A GLANCE DOWN the membership of the organizations in
Gulf County, which are designed to either assist directly, or
raise money for a genuinely good public service, will contain Ze-
doc Baxter's name. He's on the rolls. If he doesn't have time to
serve, he makes time. Any organization with his name on their
rolls has more than just another name-the influence' of the pas-
tor of: the First United Methodist Church, for whatever that's
worth-they have two arms, two legs, a willing back and a head
full of caring ideas to add to the energy which makes their or-
ganization tick.
It's a rarity to get both support and a willing back, all in one
person.
AND, WHAT CAN one say about George Core's past record
Which hasn't already been said? ..
An example of George's willingness to be of service was expe-
rienced by this newspaper several years ago. We were a one-man
operation -back in those days and at times we didn't have: the
time to go to a County Commissioners' meeting. It took George's
valuable time to give us the highlights over the phone, but he
Adid it and -made us think he did it willingly, even though he
might have been jealous of the time spent in this manner,
George is like that. If he can, he will be of service to anyone
who needs his numerous talents.
GEORGE CARRIES A generous supply of important informa-
tion around in that head with the thinning crop of grey hair. It's
information that many people need every day, too. There's more
than a little county history stored there, too.
On top of that, George is a solid friend to almost all who
know him. Our preacher, Curtis Clark, quoted a statistic in a
sermon the other week when he said, 'The average person has
no more than 25 good, fast friends at any one time." George has
the share of several other people, also, if that average is true.
Two good choices, who have served our community well,


SmallTown News
'THE RASH OF SMALL burglaries in our town is something
we definitely do not need. It is an unusual position for us to be
in and something we are not accustomed to here in Port St. Joe.
This a community of the sort which makes padlocks obso-
lete. Our people haven't been accustomed to having to lock up
their homes, their cars, their belongings. This has been a trust-
ing community for a long time. Many boast that they never lock
their homes. They walk anywhere they desire at night without a
worry or a care about their safety.
It is a good, safe, small community to live in.
BUT WHEN A GAGGLE of burglaries are reported to have
happened, we are all in a state of shock. Only small things are
taken, but they're our things! It is happening in our town.
We think the feelings most of us are having aren't rage. or
loss; but instead we are feeling disappointment! Disappointment
that anyone would dare disturb the tranquility of our lives with
such thing as theft.
It has happened before, but it has been so sparse as to cause
us to forget the experience and forget that this is a selfish world
we live in. We should ever be on the alert. Maybe we should be
thankful that if we lived a defensive life, such as other communi-
ties are forced to live in, it wouldn't have happened to us. We're
not yet prisoners in our own homes.


LOUIS FAIRRAKHAN was quoted last week in Newsweek
magazine as having said: "I think that America should see me as
a great asset, probably the most trusted ambassador, because I
can go to places where ambassadors cannot be trusted." Far-
rakhan is probably right. But, how can we be sure that he would
represent the United States' interests in a country like Libya; or
could we even trust him when he returned home?

Bob, Pat and Lamar Are In A Dead Heat In The Cold North


SUPER TUESDAY is less
than two weeks away and already
the .presidential candidates are
acting like their opponents have
either won or lost, with what has
happened in Iowa and New
Hampshire.
It never did make any sense
to me to be holding any part of an
election in New Hampshire ... in
February, of all months to be
holding any sort of an election in.
It may be the people of New
Hampshire felt it was too cold
outside to do anything worth-
while, so they just decided to hold
an election, instead.
Here in Florida, we're going to.
hold our primary on March 12.
That's after all the cold and disa-
greeable weather has gone, but it
is also before we get busy and
preoccupied with our tourists and
such. In other words, before we
get busy with making a living,
we'll hold a preferential primary.
I can't imagine those north-
ern states being able to get their
people down to the polls, in three

feet of snow and ice, to cast a bal-
lot for anyone! Neither can I ima-
gine a candidate, sloshing
through the mud, snow and glop
to campaign. But, evidently they
do!

IT WAS A SHOCK in New
Hampshire last week when Pat
Buchanan won by the narrowest
of margins. One 'IV reporter said
his plurality equated to about
2,000 votes.
They say Pat is eccentric. He
might be and he may not be. Evi-
dently people up in the frozen
north are enamored enough with
Pat to give him "thumbs*up" for
president.


Then, again, people just may
not be voting for Buchanan as
much as they are casting a vote
in protest for the status quo. I
think of it as a "given" that people
who work for a living and pay the
taxes which largely supports this
nation are more than a little tired ;
of the way things are going.
Pat is. supporting manufac-
turing jobs for the U.S.A., rather
than have the government en-
courage their leaving this nation
with their jobs and moving to oth-
ers. People are tired of -favoring
those who have no intention of
working with their hard-earned
tax dollars. People want their jobs
to be steady, their tax money to


result in value for the dollar, and
their public servants to serve the
:public and be honest with the
people while they are doing so.
That isn't too much to expect
out of a person or persons one is
paying a guaranteed wage on a.
job with a handsome pension af-
ter they have reached a certain
age. In the meantime, they can't
be fired just because their job
plays out. They have tenure

THAT SITUATION SEEMS
simple enough to arrange for the
people paying the bill, doesn't it?
It isn't too hard to understand
why people would want that for
themselves and their children.
Since Pat is championing that fu-
ture for the citizens, it isn't too
much of a mystery why people
are voting for him. It's just a pity
that he is so radical in some
areas.
I'm tired of all that "pretty
talk" these politicians are giving
us and judging by recent events,


I'm sure many other people are,
also.
The situation the other day,
i in which candidate Lamar Alex-
ander had to ask, "How much
does a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs
and 'a pound of butter cost these
days?" is a good example of what I
the problem is. The ones in power
are so out of touch with what is
happening to the people as a re-
sult of their actions, they haven't
a clue of what is going on. They
don't know how much bread,
eggs or butter costs these days.
Only caviar and junkets!

HERE AT THE Star, we're
really getting a taste of how these
people think.. Lamar Alexander
has kept our fax machine busy
for the past two months, sending
us press releases, itineraries,
time for his next bath ...
In the meantime it has cost
us the price of a couple of rolls of
fax paper to receive his messages
and tied up our fax machine for a


half dozen times a day, every day.
He's campaigning off in Iowa and
New Hampshire and we're living
in FlOrida.
That's just an example of the,
waste someone else is paying for.
He ought to know, if he is astute
enough to be president, that a
small community weekly newspa-
per isn't going to' print his presi-
dential trail. He should save his
time and efforts foi someone else.

WE CELEBRATED George
Washington's and Abraham Lin-
coln's birthdays this past week
and were once again reminded of
their honesty and the effort
Washington reluctantly put into
being president... at no pay.
Talk about the good old days;
wouldn't it be'. a breath of fresh
air if we could find a public ser-
vant like. that today? It wouldn't
even matter to me if his name:
were 'BillClinton'l
I guess they don't make 'em
like that anymore.

pounds per tree) in February, re-
peat in June. Spread evenly un-
der tree's canopy. Prune branch-
es that are rubbing, those that
are diseased and try to keep
branches pointed away from cen-
ter instead of back in. Don't over-
prune or you will lose a year with
no fruit and also over stimulate
lush spring growth leading to a
higher incidence of fire blight.

ed you wait until they are actual-
ly in flower to prune (perhaps as
late as end of March with some
varieties). Earlier pruning might
stimulate premature bud break, if
we have a warm spell. This could


Cost you this year's crop. As
above, prune rubbing or diseased
Branches out, but make greater
effort to remove all branches
pointed back toward the center. A
properly pruned tree should look
like a bow with the center kept
open.
Pecans: They also should be
fertilized with a 10-10-10 in Feb-
ruary, at the rate of one pound
per year of age up to 40 pounds
per tree in February and repeat in
June. Spread fertilizer evenly un-
der the canopy. These trees are
pruned very little as it would
greatly reduce fruit formation.
Prune out broken, diseased or
rubbing branch.
-Figs and persimmons: These
should be fertilized at the same
rate as apples and pears. They
are not pruned heavily and the
only real pruning done on them is
the removal of dead wood, espe-
cially that which was injured by
cold. This is normally done after
the weather starts to warm and it
can be determined how far back
they have been killed (usually by
April). :
Grapes: muscadines are ferti-
lized in late February r early
March with a 10-10-10 fertilizer
at the rate of 1/2 pound per year
of age to a maximum of five
pounds per plant, if in the ground
for at least one season. Pruning is


extensive on the muscadine with
permanent arms growing in each.
direction off a central trunk and
individual 2-3 bud spurs coming
off these arms. Pruning can start
as early as January on grapes
but should be done before mid
March in our area.
Blueberries: Blueberries are
fertilized for the first time in
March if they are in the ground at
least one season. Since they are
sensitive to nitrate nitrogen, the
nitrogen is best applied in the


ammonium sulfate form rather
than the ammonia nitrate form.
For this reason, a fertilizer la-
beled as an azalea/camellia blend
is better suited that a 10-10-10.
Apply approximately 1/4 to 1/3
cup per plant. Spread only in 24"
band around plant. Rabbit eye
blueberries (the, type most often
grown in North Florida) require
minimal pruning up to the first 7-
8 years in the ground. After. that,
remove 1/4 to 1/3 of the oldest
canes each year back to the
ground.

S'for an appointment.


and' Brannon, trying to clarify
some of the points in question.
The board denied all three
grievances. The first grievance in-
volved a pay dispute filed by Greg
Pickron and Ronald Boyd, who
were both hired as mechanics
with the road department. Both
claim they should have been given
a 15 cents per hour pay increase
after completing a six month pro-
bationary period, which they
didn't receive until after a year of
employment. The grievance asked
that they. be reimbursed for the.
six month period.
The board argued that the two
were not hired at the base com-
mon labor salary, but rather as
mechanics at a much higher pay
($10.06/hr. compared to $6.00/
hr.), and were not due the pay
steps they would have gotten had'
they started at the bottom of the
pay scale.
Grievance two concerned a
complaint by road department em-,
ployees that mosquito control em-
ployees had gotten an extra 1/2
day off during the Thanksgiving
holidays that the road department
employees didn't receive. The grie-
vance was given to theiirimmedi-
. ate supervisor, Bobby Knee, who
contacted Commissioner Jessie
Aristrong about the situation.
Armstrong instructed Knee to offer
the employees 1 1/2 days off dur-
ing the Christmas holidays to set-
tle the grievance. His action was
rescinded before the holidays by
the full Board when they learned
of the offer.
The board instructed Chief
Administrator Don Butler to meet
with the employees and offer them
what the grievance had asked for
(1/2 day off) and instruct them
they would not receive 1 1/2 days


off.
The union contends that the
board should have to stick with
the first decision, while the board
maintains that the decision of the
board as a whole supercedes the
action of one commissioner, and
the board is within their bounds
to do so.
Grievance #3 concerned two
Employees. Greg Pickron and Bill
Nunery, who didn't show up for
work as instructed by the board in
grievance #2. and were subse-
quently suspended without pay
for their actions for three days by
Sthe board.
The employees were asking to
be reimbursed for the"time lost
. due.to the suspension.
The board denied their re-
quest, stating the employees
should have followed: the proper'
channels set forth ii the contract,
rather than disobey their employ-
er's instructions and not show up
for Work.
IN OTHER BUSINESS
Set up a meeting with Pan-
handle Paving and the board at
6:00 March 7th to go over the
county'sroad paving list with the
contractor.
Heard a request from Jerry
Long, Panhandle Paving, to locate
a portable asphalt plant approxi-
mately five miles north of Wewa-
hitchka. The board turned the re-
quest over to Chief Administrator
Don Butler, to review.
SCharlie Cole presented each
of the commissioners and Joe
Danford a plaque expressing his
appreciation for the board's help
and support when he was invited
to the International Science Fair
in Canada last year.

Fish Commission's annual white
bass tournament on the Apalach-
icola River. :
Fisheries Biologist Michael
Hill is overseeing this year's tour-
nament, which is the 16th year
white bass have been collected for
the GFC's sunshine bass, pro-
gram. In a break with the past,
this year's tournament will be
just one day, rather than a day,
and a half.
'We're going to one day for
several reasons," Hill said. "White
bass are now established in the
Ochlockonee River and Lake Tal-
quin, and there's little trouble
getting big, quality fish from
there."
"However, we want to take
some fish from the Apalachicola


MEET


and at the same time orient the
tournament a little more to young
people. We still want adults to
sign up and participate, but
hopefully they'll 'bring a young
person and teach them the fun of
fishing."
Hill said the ages for competi-
tion are 10 and under, 11-16,
and 17 and over. As in the past,
he said only those white bass 10
inches and larger can be used.
Fishing will be allowed begin-
ning at 6 a.m. and must conclude
by 5 p.m., according to Hill. Priz-
es have been donated by major.
fishing tackle manufacturers and
will' be awarded to winning an-
glers at 6 p.m. at the Chatta-
hoochee boat ramp.

The family of Mrs. O. M. Tay-
lor would like to say a deeply felt
thank you to all who have shown
their love in so many ways during
the time'of her illness and death.
We felt such a special appre-
ciation for the kind, compassion-
"ate and competent ones who were,
involved in her care over the past

The sweet spirit of her church

they helped so tirelessly with the

A great source of strength for
us has been the genuine concern
of her neighbors and many
friends in this wonderful commu-

tended family that has been at
hand with their love and support
during this difficult time.
She blessed us, with her life,
and your many expressions of
love:have blessed us as we trust
her to God's care.

It will be the third year in a
row for the Tiger Sharks'to make
an appearance' in the state Final
Four tournament, as a result of
their victory over Lake Butler
Tuesday night, 62-58.
The Sharks started the game
like a house on fire. Taking a 24-
11 lead in the first quarter, it
looked like a repeat of the Chipley
game Friday night, when the
Sharks dominated the game un-
der the baskets. But Lake But-
ler's strength or Tiger Shark apa-
thy set in before the game was
over and the Sharks barely pulled
it out in the final two minutes.
In a last minute gasp of ef-
fort, Lake Butler put on a surge
of energy in the final period that
gave them the lead in the game
for the first time. The Sharks tied
it again with only 2:23 left in the
game.
Des Baxter brought the
Sharks back. igniting a final rally
with a 3-point basket and giving
his team-mates.that final spurt to
victory with four free throw shots
in the final seconds of the game.

to step up the tempo and keep
the pressure on -for the entire
game. Coach Epppinette changed
line-ups three times In that first
quarter which saw the Tigers take
an early lead and build on it be-
fore the Sharks finally got their
act together. By the first minute
of the second quarter. Doyle
Crosby bucketed the lay-up
which put them ahead to stay for
the remainder of the game.
Chipley played with "fire in
their belly" until early into the
-third quarter when the Sharks
,began to widen their margin by
as much as 20 points at one
time.
Defense and constant pres-
sure on both sides of the ball won
the game for the Sharks. Wherev-
er that ball went, a Shark was
sure to follow... or lead.
Chipley coach Ricky McCul-
lough stated. "Where we messed
up was losing last week" [to Bak-
er: forcing the Tigers to take to
the road]. In reality, where the Ti-
gers "messed up" was in getting
into the same bracket with the
Sharks.
Coach Eppinette substituted
freely from his deep bench, as he
has done all year. He used 11
players in the first quarter, alone,
keeping fresh players on the floor
at all times.
Jermaine Larry paced the
Shark attack with his game-high
19 points-- l in the third quar-
ter! Des Baxter ended the night
with 14 points and eight re-
bounds, as he guided the Sharks'
floor game. Chad Quinn added 11
points and Doyle Crosby chipped
in 10.
Brian Jenkins added two 3-

Jermalne Larry added one each.
Twin brothers Ryan Collins

Lawmakers Tackle


Florida's Meandering


Senate District

Both Sides Argue the Controversial
Issue In An Atempt to Persuade Court
Some defining moments came to Tallahassee, every Floridian's sec-
ond home town, as about a thousand civil rights demonstrators chanted
outside U. S. District Court.
Inside, a three-judge panel took testimony in a trial to determine
Whether the U. S. Congressional Third District, gerrymandered to create
a black majority, is unconstitutional as the U. S. Supreme Court has
'declared in several similar cases in other states.
Outside, there was foot-stomping and shouting as black U. S. Rep.
Earl Hilliard of Alabama told the crowd: "Don't think for one minute this
is a fight about Corrine Brown (the third district incumbent) ... It is
about us ... They want to strip black people of power."
U. S. Sen. Bob Graham, D-Florida, looking like a candidate for gov-
ernor in 1998, attended the rally and Florida Gov. Lawton Chiles sent a
message: "While I would not presume to advise the court in this case, I do
believe Florida must have a congressional delegation that looks like our
state-reflecting our strong cultural diversity."
At issue is whether the creation of the 265-mile-long district winding
through 14 counties with a slim 50.6 percent black voting majority is nec-
essary to meet a compelling state need.
The nation's high court in several cases in other states says it isn't,
claiming such districting based on race violates the equal rights provi-
sions in the constitution for all cTtizens.
The biggest defining moment and, perhaps, the crux of the case, was
in the testimony given by black state Sen. Betty Holzendorf, D-
Jacksonville, who admitted under cross-examination that she received
significant support from white people in her races.
The fact is that only one of Florida's five black state senators comes
from a black majority district. In the ,House, which has 15 black repre-
sentatives, black voters are in the majority in only nine districts. I"
So whites do vote for blacks, which isn't surprising. Blacks vote for
whites.too, but according to statistics brought out at the trial, blacks
don't split their votes as much as whites do when there is a choice
between a white and black candidate. So who are the racists?
White Lake City Mayor Thomas Gerald Witt testified for Brown at the
trial, saying she did an effective job and the district gave an economical-
ly depressed group of white and black residents some representation they
never had-before.
'The biggest fact going for the chanters was that Florida, with a pop-
ulation about 13 percent black, has not elected a black to Congress for
116 years until redistricting in 1992.
The irony is that white Democrats in adjoining districts, who Uncle
Clem Rednek over on Flat Creek in Gadsden County calls BVDs (black
vote dealers), lose seats when special racial districts are set up concen-
trating the black vote. It robs them of their dependable black votes, mak-
ing it difficult to defeat Republicans who are not generally favored by
blacks.
Segregating black voters into their own districts tends to dilute their
influence because elected officials in neighboring districts who don't need
their votes to win can ignore their wishes.
But it's an admission of defeat for everything this country stands for
if a voting district's boundaries are drawn solely to give one race an
advantage over another. It's fine for those elected in those segregated dis-
tricts who quickly become entrenched incumbents, but there has to be a
better answer.
Perhaps, geographic and economic boundaries rather than racial
boundaries are best after all.


Here's the Capitol News Roundup
LINES DRAWN FOR CHARTER SCHOOL FIGHT .- '"
Opposing sides were forming last week on-the big fight expected in
the Florida Legislature on charter schools this year.
The Senate Judiciary Committee decided only local school boards can
decide if they can operate in their districts. It weakens the bill that was
passed by the Senate last year which also allowed the State Board of
Education to give permission for a charter school to operate in a county.,
Then, the powerful Senate Ways and Means Committee voted 25-3 to
allow teachers, parents or administrators who are dissatisfied with local
schools to get public funding for charter schools which would not have to
operate under public school rules.
'We cannot continue to do things'the way we have done in the past.
People believe education is headed in the wrong direction and it is," said
Sen. Donald Sullivan, R-St. Petersburg, sponsor of the bill to allow the
creation of new schools with public dollars.
Opponents-many who argued against the bill but voted for it in final
passage--said charter schools may prove too costly and drain much-
needed money from the regular public school system.
Sen. Ken Jenne, D-Fort Lauderdale, and Seri. Betty Holzendorf, D-
Jacksonville, called for further study on the bill, claiming it's introduction
came as a surprise.
Sen. Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, said 18 school superintendents in his
district are in favor of charter schools but they envision it will erode the
funding formula and public schools, generally, in their counties will suf-
fer.
At one point in the debate, Sen. Fred R. Dudley, R-Cape Coral, said
it would be up to the district school boards to decide if charter schools
will be too expensive. "If they do, it is my personal opinion that they
should then decide not to allow them," he said.

NEWS ROUND-UP

from Tallahassee
by JACK HARPER


writing a critical letter on overcrowded conditions on campus to a news-
paper.
"When he walked out, I felt that he had regained the respect of every
student in there," FSU student body President John Daily said.
D'Alemberte, former Florida Bar President and law professor in his
trademark red bow tie, told students he never intended to intimidate
Potter. "I do apologize. It's the kind of thing that can send a chill all
through the campus," D'Alemberte said.
D'Alemberte also complained at the time that editors at the
Tallahassee Democrat should have checked with him before publishing
the student's letter..
The FSU student newspap'er-the Florida Flambeau-broke the story.
The student Senate demanded the apology.
D'Alemberte denied a report in the St. Petersburg Times from a for-
mer student who said about a year ago he publicly chastised her and
threatened to block her lawaschool application at FSU because she wrote
a critical letter to a state legislator.
SENATOR CALLS FOR FIRING
Sen. Charlie Crist, R-St. Petersburg, called for the firing of two top
Department of Correction officials criticized by an auditor for trying to
destroy public records detailing a controversial bid for a state contract.
But Corrections Secretary Harry Singletary all but ruled out that pos-
sibility, saying he would base any disciplinary action in light of the past
work record of the two employees.,
The inspector general reported that assistant secretary Ron
Kronenberger ordered memos on the bid process for inmate pay phones'
be destroyed and general services bureau chief Jim Morris ordered his
subordinates to carry out the order.
The memos were never destroyed, however. Another employee quiet-
ly saved them.
MECHANICAL DEER STRIKES AGAIN
Andy Wells and a Juvenile were arrested in Madison County for hunt-
ing illegally off a public road when state wildlife officers investigated a
shooting of a mechanical deer they had set up.
fThe Madison Carrier reported officers found an eight-point buck deer
in the truck after the two men were caught when they fired on the dummy
mechanical deer in the trap.
"Unless the Judicial system applies an appropriate punishment, this
serious violation of hunting at night usually with a light, will persist,"
Officer Tony Oladell said.
'TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT' -.JEB BUSH
Jeb Bush, the man who lost the closest governor's race in Florida his-
tory, has co-authored a book entitled "Profiles inCharacter" in which he
says government has failed to solve serious social problems, but the peo-
ple will do it themselves if politicians get out of the way.
Sound familiar? Jack Kennedy, this country's youngest president
ever, co-authored a book entitled "Profiles in Courage" that essentially
said about the same thing.
Bush says in his that the answer is a return to civil society through
individuals and not dependence on government which has failed.
He lists the failures: doubling of the violent crime rate from 1971 to
1994; increase in out-of-wedlock births from 10 percent in 1960 to 35
percent in 1994; and the public school system's poor record in graduat-
ing students with the skills to pass in college.

Bob Dole or former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander will eventually be

Graham also said that a recent trip to Dallas has convinced him that

For his own political future, Graham said, he will not decide if he will
seek another term as governor of Florida until after the presidential elec-

S"How To Say I'm Sorry"
by Will Strange
.This is how I say I'm sorry.
First I go to the person I did
something to. Then I say I am
sony. There are a lot of people
who do something bad to other
people and they do not' tell that
person they're sorry. Sometimes I
do not say I'm sorry either, be-
cause really want to hurt their
feelings; but sometimes I tell
them I .am sorry. and I really
mean it.

Parents Make The Difference
As we consider ways to teach
children respect, it is important
to understand that respect Is not
the usairhe: -t hig as obedience. AIltI--'
parents want respect. But many
make the mistake of demanding
respect from their kids.
They might say things like,
"Sit up," "Stand straight," or
"Don't ever talk to me like that!"
And woe to the child who doesn't
"toe the line."
What these parents don't re-
alize is that they may not be get-
ting respect at all. Parents who
demand that children blindly do
what they say may only be getting
their children's angry obedience.,
Their children may be obeying.,
them out of fear. Fear teaches
children something entirely differ-
ent than respect.

Temptation

Too often we are tempt-
ed to place the blame on
others. A mature Christian
accepts responsibility. In
James 1:13 we find, "Let
no one say when he is
tempted, I am tempted by
God; for God cannot be
tempted with evil and he
himself tempts no one."
Flip Wilson, used the line,


"The devil made me do it."Yes, some blame the
Lord for their temptations and others blame the
devil. In our humanity we can all be tempted at
times in various ways. However, as Christians
we can resist temptations. There are plenty of
situations where we can compromise our Chris-
tianity. We all live in the real world, and not in
a vacuum.
We sing, "Yield not to temptation, for yield-
ing is sin." Christians need strength from God
to resist evil. Let us place our lives in God's
hands.

vices.


Dear Counselor,
I am a 40-year-old woman
who is successful in a profes-
sional occupation. My problem is,
I don't have any "get-up-and-go"
anymore. When I come home from
work, the only thing I can bring
myself to, do is call, up something
to eat and watch TV. I am slightly
overweight and slowly gaining. I1
sleep soundly ard don't wake dur-
ing the night. However, even after
sleeping eight hours, I can hardly
drag myself out of bed and go to
work. So far, my lack of energy
has not dramatically affected my
performance at work. However; I
often find myself consciously
searching for initiative to begin
tasks that were once routine. I
have been examined and tested by
several physicians and they all
have told me there is nothing"
physically wrong with me.
I've tried everything: proper
diet, vitamin supplements, rest
and relaxation, but nothing seems
to help. I disappoint myself
because I can't find the energy to
pursue the leisure-time activities I
used to enjoy. Please tell me what
I can do to put enjoyment back
into my life.
Sincerely,
Just Too Tired


Dear Just Too Tired,
It sounds as though you have
gotten yourself stuck in a rut that
is becoming 'progressively deeper.
A good fitness program is one of
the best tools to help pry you out
of.this rut. However, motivation to
pick up this tool is probably lack-
ing.
If you are unable to self moti-
vate, you should contact a mental
health or guidance organization..
Most of these organizations offer
fitness programs that employ
motivational and supportive guid-
ance coupled with an exercise
program. Enrolling in one of these
programs will not solve all your
problems, but it is one of the best
ways to improve the quality of
your life.
Sincerely,
John Ray, M.S.
Outreach Counselor

SGulf County Commission Minutes


DECEMBER 12. 1995
SPECIAL MEETING
The Gulf County board of County
Commissioners met this date special ses-
sion with the following members present:
Chairman Billy E. Traylor, and
Commissioners Michael L. Hammond,
Warren J. Yeager, Jr., Nathan Peters, Jr.,
and Jesse V. Armstrong. Others present
were: Clerk Benny C. Lister, Deputy Clerk
Patricia Taylor, Chief Administrator Don
Butler, Administrative Assistant Debbe
Wibberg, and Administrator/Emergency
Management Director Larry Wells.
The meeting came to order at 5:09
p.m.
Administrator Wells introduced Mr.
Wallace Brannon, 'Union Representative
and presented the list of impasse items to
be discussed.
WAGE INCREASE BARGAINING
UNIT EMPLOYEES Mr. Brannon request-
ed a 3 percent -wage increase for all bar-
gaining unit employees. Administrator
Wells proposed a 2 percent wage increase
calculated on the average hourly wage of all
bargaining unit employees. Administrator
Wells requested that bargaining unit
employees not be compared to other County
employees, since the bargaining unit
requested to be a separate group; he also
requested that the wage increase for the
bargaining unit employees be calculated on
the average hourly wage so as not to inter-
fere with the job classification system.
Mr. Brannon requested that the wage
increase be granted across the board so as
to increase the steps between classifica-
tions and give the employees more of an
Incentive to work toward the next step clas-
sification. Commissioner Yeager moved to
give the Bargaining unit employees a 2.5
percent wage increase for each Job clas-
siflcation. The motion was seconded by
Commissioner Hammond and following dis-
cussion the motion passed unanimously.
VACATION TIME Mr. Brannon
requested that Bargaining Unit employees
be given the option to carry unused vaca-
tion time over to the next year or to sell the
time back to the County. He stated that
this request was based on the fact that in
1993, two Road Department Employees had
been allowed to carry unused vacation time
over to the next year. Commissioner
,Hammond questioned what the circum-
stances had been during that time, stating
that it may have been a situational prob-
lem.
Administrator Wells stated that this
type of policy, would create accounting
problems for the County and recommended
to deny the request. Commissioner
Hammond moved to deny the request, the
motion was seconded by Commissioner
Yeager, following discussion the motion and
the second werewithdrawn.
Upon motion by Commissioner Yeager,
second by Commissioner Hammond. and,
unanimous vote, the Board approved to
amend the contract as it pertains to the
second and third years to allow bargafiiing
unit employees to sell back up to one week
of unused vacation time beginning January
1, 1997 for annual leave accrued' n calen-
dar years 1996 and 1997.
EARNED COMPENSATION TIME Mr.
Brannon withdrew his request regarding
earned compensation time.
SICK LEAVE POLICY Mr. Brannon
requested that Bargaining Unit employees
be allowed to accrue 8 hours per month of
sick leave rather than the 4, that they
presently accrue. Following .discussion
and upon motion by Commissioner
Peters, second by Commissioner
Hammond, and unanimous vote the Board
agreed not to change the contract this year,
but reserved the right to consider an
amendment to the contract next year.
ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABLiSE POLICY
Administrator Wells recommended that
any employee intalved in an accident &hlle,
operating any County equipment or per-.
forming a job for the County, that creates
liability on the County's part, be sent for a
drug screen. He also recommended that
the clause requesting rwo samples for the
.drug testbe removed as he feels it is redun-
dant since a second test Is currently being
performed on any positive' drug screens.
Mr. Brinnon requested that the word-
ing "performing any job" not be used
because even an employee suffering a paper
cut would be required to have a drug
screen. He stated that only employees that
are required to have a Department of
Transportation license should be required
to, have the testing, and that the supervi-
sors should be trained to monitor employ-
ees for signs of drug abuse. Upon motion
by Commissioner Hammond, second by
Commissioner Peters, and unanimous vote,
the Board approved Administrator Wells'
request.
With no further business and upon
motion by Commissioner Hammond, sec-
ond by Commissioner Yeager, and unani-
mous vote, the meeting did then adjourn at
6:10 p.m., E.S.T.
