City Acquires Hess


The Port St. Joe City Commissioners vot-
ed to accept approximately 28 acres of land
as a gift from Amerada Hess Oil Company
during a special meeting of the board held
Wednesday at noon.
Mayor Frank Pate submitted the recom-
mendation to the board following Amerada
Hess representatives' offer of the land "as
Is/where Is".
The land, situated along the northern
most end of First Street adjacent to St. Joe
Forest Products, currently has several bulk
oil storage tanks located on the property. It
has set dormant for the past few years
spurring more than one conversation as to
what might be done with the land in the


future.
Pate said he and board attorney. William
J. Rish, had been negotiating with Hess Oil.
on behalf of the city, for more than a year
prior to their gift offer.
The board expressed concerns over pos-
sible environmental clean-up problems
which might be encountered if one or more
of the giant tanks have leaked and contami-
nated the soil under them. Pate told the
board that preliminary soil tests had been
conducted and results, thus far, have been
very encouraging.
If all goes as expected Pate thinks the
land acquisition could be 'a real shot in the
arm for economic development in the area,


holding severa'options for use by the city.
One such option is to develop a marina
complex, complete with boat slips, restau-
rant. hotel and'all the supporting business-
es and shops ap recently proposed by Design
Studio West consultants in their "Vision
Study", sponSored by the Chamber of
Commerce.
Other options would include the possible
Suse of part of the property for aquaculture or
to complement the port authority.
DSW's tudy focuses on future growth
and development, for the city, specifically
pointing to the -less property for the marina
complex.

Spring Has Sprung

IT'S SPRING, FOR SURE, now, and all over the nation
communities are featuring clean up, paint up, fix up weeks
in order to clear away the accumulation of debris which has
collected during the winter months and to start off the
spring and summer season with a clean, fresh look.
It's a good program which performs a good service.
Every community in which its people has any pride at all,
want their community or their neighborhood to have a
fresh, clean, orderly appearance. Not only does it help the
looks of the neighborhood, but it serves to keep down
vermin and undesirable pests; it keeps unsightly weeds and
undergrowth in check; things just look better when they are
freshly cleaned or have a new coat of paint.
WE AT THE STAR are going to set a good example for
our street by painting our building, cleaning up around the
premises and planting or re-planting a few flowers and
shrubs, in order to make the place jiore pleasing to the eye;
yours and ours!.
It would be desirable for everyone if this practice was to
be come infectious throughout the community. If we were to
clean up, paint up and fix up, we would all hold our head
just a little higher: from the realization that we keep a neat,
clean town here. It would be something which we could
justifiably hold up with pride before others as an example
of whatthey should be doing in their community, also.
WE HAVE A HEAD start in this clean up, paint up, fix
up business, you know. The city operates a sophisticated
solid waste disposal program, which is a giant step toward
our annual spring With the cooperative actions by the.city
we have no excuse for allowing our town to get that
excessively "lived in" look.
With twice a week garbage collection service: with
top-notch sanitary containers to place our household waste
in to hold until.the collection crew comes by our homes;
with periodical trash pick-up furnished free by the, city;
with ordinances in place to require our cooperation with the
service offered and prohibit the hap-hazard disposal of our
trash; we have no excuse for doing other than properly
handling what we intend to throw away, keeping it from
becoming nuisance or eyesore.
WE KNOWWE CAN depend on you .. and you and
you to expend the effort needed to gather up your
unsightly items which are lying about and dispose of them
properly thus accomplishing the neater, more pleasing
surroundings all of us desire.



Play Bal !

BASEBALL, IS NOW underway throughout the nation;
America's pastime has started another season. The game is
uniquely American in nature and almost uniquely American
n performance. The third 'world nations around the United
States and the island nations off our shores have taken to
baseball like women to credit cards. Even our out-spoken
enemy-Cuba-furnished more than its share of players for
AmerAan leagues; There is no political ide'loagy n'.the
game. If you can play good enough, you get the position, at
least for a year. Then, it's a dog fight to hold on to it and
keep someone else from usurping your position.
A couple of years ago. baseball was interrupted with a
hasty strike. Nobody could figure out why the players were
griping, given the kings' ransom salaries even mere players
were demanding .. and getting
MAYBE THIS SEASON will be different. Maybe it won't
be interrupted or delayed by a strike like the two previous
seasons were. It Would be a catastrophe to see baseball
degenerate into something nobody wanted to watch or be a
part of. It would be a shame to see a game which gives so
many people so much pleasure to watch, talk about, ponder
and participate in; torn asunder by the greed of some
players or club owners. We fear that if the unrest continues
for much longer in the big leagues this is exactly what will
happen. Baseball will once again become a game for kids,
played on an empty lot, with little or no resemblance to the
national pastime it has evolved into over the years.
IN THE MEANTIME, forget the posturing and bickering
and PLAY BALL

--- -------


I won the first "award" of my
life in Miss Katie Owenby's kin-
dergarten class. That was way
back in 1953. And let me tell you,
I hopped right up there with my
chest stuck out when she called
my name, "And now, boys and
girls, for the 'Back Seat Next To
The Window, Left Side-Award'-
Kesl. .... "
Yogi won for the right side.
Miss Katie drove a big Ford sta-
tion wagon with real wood panels
on the doors. Me and Yogi fought
every morning fbr those back seat
window positions and I was kind
'a proud of my over-sized striped


sucker, which is what all the re-
cipients were presented, until
Yogi pointed out, "Shoot, we
couldn't win the best dressed
award. Look at usl And we
couldn't win for the neatest. And
certainly not for the most polite.
You have to stay inside the lines
and pick pink arnd light blue. to
win anything for coloring. And I
don't want to win a 'cutting out
award'l That only left clay model-
ing-and whei Ricky took 'Shap-
ing and Playing' honors Miss Ka-
tie really had to stretch to come
up with something for us."
The just won my first -
ever award afterglow began to
wane a little as his point sank in.
Even Corlis Archer won a sucker.
He was dumber than me and Yogi


put together! He got the "Being
Here" award.
"It ain't much of an 'award'
when everybody in the class gets
one." If Miss Katie had 'a been
handing out "Wise For His Age"
suckers, Yogi would have won go-
ing away.
Forty odd years later even the
most casual of glances toward the
entertainment industry reveals
"The Katie Owenby Hand 'em Out
Syndrome" is alive and well. As a
group,, they are about the most
self-decoratiing people I've ever
heard tell of. And they make sure
there's enough hardware to go
around. .If you don't. get' the
Emmy this year, maybe it'll be
your turn for the Ace Award the
next. And there's always the


Tony's, the Espy's, the Golden
Globe's, the Soul Train Dance
Along Bronze Shoe Awards .....
If you can't act worth a hoot
or sing like Dwight Yokaim but
you're a pretty good all around
guy-don't give up, you could be
in line for a People's Choice
Award. If you can't "Make it" in
this country and you can find
Cannes, France, there may be a
Golden Palm with your name on
it.
I used to worry about all
those daytime soap opera stars-
were they going to get lost in the
shuffle? Listen, these "charac-
ters" were way ahead of every-
body except Miss Katie, they pro-
duced their own awards show-

There's More To A Nae Than Meets The Eye


THIS COLUMN IS aptly-
named especially so this
week. You see, I'm not at my com-
puter setting this in the usual
time slot. Actually. I'm not sure ,
my computer Is even turned on
since I'm not at the office to oper-
ate it in imy own Inimitable fash-'
ion; the "seek and ye shall find"
method of typing.;: .
This week I'm supposed to be
in one of Panama City's best hos-
pitals-not the animal hospital-.
recovering from my surgery of
last Wednesday morning. I'm
supposed to be there IF Medicare
hasn't kicked me out and told me
to go home and get somebody free
to wait on me.
That's the only good thing
about having a bout with a sur-
gery procedure; having someone
wait on you for every need and
wish. I get that kind of care but I
don't get the luxury of getting out
ofwriting this blurb for a week or
two.

YIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


SETA0





this page before you take off for a
couple of week's of idle activity," I
was told. There was none of the
expected, 'You Just rest anid re-
cover and enjoy daytime TV for a
week or two and we will take care
of everything here at the newspa-
per office while you are gone."
I guess when it comes my
turn to die, some smart astronaut
is going to pop up with, "Have
you, prepared some columns and
editorials a few weeks in advance
before you go?"

.THIS WEEK'S COLUMN is
truly an ETAOIN SHRDLU.effort.
That's "French" for "space filler" if


you didn't know.
Truly, ETAOIN SHRDLU is
nothing but a space filler, or "pi"
line, in the trade. Printers today
don't know anything about that
because everything they see
comes off computers, which have ;
no "'pi" lines., They have.. errors
and transpositions, but no "pi"
lines. Only the real printers, who
set type on: a machine made for
nothing p g except setting type-a
Linotype machine-know any-
thing about a "pi" line.
If you haven't had your shoe
filled up with hot, melted, type
metal when a Linotype machine
"squirted" from having a dirty


mouthpiece, yoi can't really ap-,
preciate what a real printer .
or a "pi" line, is.

COMPARING, A computer
with a Linotype for purposes of
setting type is like comparing a
Lincoln Tow1 Car with a go-cart.
There is no -comparison. They are
entirely different animals,and the
operator of the go-cart is not pre-
pared .to operate the Town Car
anymore than the computer oper-
ator is prepared to operate the
Linotype machine.
They're different. A computer
doesn't even have a decent "pi"
line on its keyboard. The nearest
thing it has is ASDF JKL:. Now, I
ask you; does that look anything
like a genuine "pi" line? Can you
get ETAOIN SHRDLU out of that'.
.. or even a reasonable facsimile?
I rest my case
DOWN HERE AT The Star of-
fice composing room--or that
which passes for a REAL compos-
ing room these "computer days"-


,the a1dies, who operate the ma-
chines all tell me that they are so
much more efficient than the old
Linotype used to be.
I just laugh at such evident
nonsense under my breath,
knowing full well they have never
worked on a- newspaper when
they. were real newspapers and
not just this new imitation meth-
od of putting out the weekly edi-
tion with comptiters [actually,
glorified typewriters], cameras,
film and such non-hot metal de-
vices. Their education in such
matters has been sadly neglected.
I just point out to them that'
one person with one Linotype ma-
chine used to set up The Star
'each and every week,, whereas it
'takes three operators of comput-
ers, four machines and me with
my hunt and peck system to do
the task now.
Although I will admit; with
the old Linotype days, I didn't
dare take two weeks off to have a
hip replaced, get the flu, break


my arm or anything else. I had to
operate the Linotype, which was
no simple task.
Now, I Just say, "I'm going to
have to be gone for a couple of
weeks to get a little elective sur-
gery done, so; handle itl" Then,
off I go, with only the admonition
to "get those, columns and editori-
als set, first"

THAT'S WHEN ETAOIN
SHRDLU comes in handy. The
computers may not have a realis-
tic "pl" line-ETAOIN SHRDLU-
.on their keyboard, but an enter-
prising old Linotype operator can
make do if he has to. The com-
puter operator has no such
choice. He has to go with what is
there, rather than get creative
with his options.
So, with this effort this week,
I have filled two purposes; dis-
played the flexibility of my experi-
ence and also shown you the
practical purpose of ETAOIN
SHRDLU-a "pi" line; or space fill-
er.

Gulf County has one of the lowest
ad valorem tax rates of any small
county in the state, with no local
sales taxes currently imposed on
its residents and visitors.
Hammond stated that, if ree-
lected, he would strive to find av-
enues by which Gulf County's ad
valorem taxes may be further re-
duced, while making county gov-
ernment more accessible and effi-
cient, and continue to actively
seek grant funds to offset ad valo-

possible to assure public access

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


BABY WALKS!
Few moments in family life
equal the Joy and excitement over a
baby's first steps.
Great as that event is, it's best
not to try to make it happen earlier
than when a baby is naturally
ready to walk. Bear in mind that
the greatest rate of growth of a
child's feet occurs In the first year
or so. Muscles and other elements'
of the feet need tirie to develop. i
As the feet becoine more capa-
ble of bearing the baby's weight, he
or she begins to experiment. The
baby pulls itself upright in the
playpen and, holding on. manages
to stand. Walking actually begins


when the baby,
placing its hand .,
on a low table or
other furniture.
learns it can
walk by moving *m
the feet and shifting the supporting
hands at the same time.
Once the child begins to walk
unaided, arrange for an examina-
tion by the podiatrist to evaluate
- foot development .grzd func f'.- ,_
Preseheld in the'interest
of better foot care by:

Beach Driving
In regard to the March 29th
hearing on beach driving, it is
reprehensible that the Chairman
of our Gulf County Commission
(Billy Traylor) expressed such re-
sentment and vehemence against
the new people who have moved'
into Gulf County. His statement
portrayed immaturity and lack of
understanding of his responsibill-
ty to represent all of the people of
Gulf County.
New people have provided in-
vigorating social. Intellectual and
financial input into the county. It
is unfortunate that the very re-
sources they provide help support
a commissioner with such a limit-
ed and narrow attitude. A person
representing the County.Commis-
slon should help shed light on a
controversy rather than fan the
fires .which create hate and preju-
dice.
Fortunately, Mr. Traylor's at-
titude does not appear to be rep-
resentative of the entire Commis-,
sion. We've lived in St. Joe Beach
for fifteen years and except for
one/or two unfortunate instances
we have been treated fairly by
both the Commission and its em-
ployees.
We take no stand on the
beach driving controversy. We
love our beaches and the spark-
ling waters of the Gulf. Our hope
is that the DEP will arrive at a de-
cision most beneficial to our eco-
system.

Complains of Coverage
Dear Editor:
I would like to assert the dili-
gent efforts of several individuals
presence at the March 19, 1996


City Commissioners' Meeting.
On numerous occasions the
local Star paper has mistakenly
left-out certain individuals who
addressed the City Commission,
and left-out the issues these indi-
viduals raised, concerning better-
ing the living conditions of north
Port St. Joe.
Over 30 individuals who re-
sides in north Port St. Joe, and
who participates in the City's re-
cycling program, were present at
this meeting. Several of these in-
dividuals who are taxpayers ad-
dressed the board concerning the
many complaints that they re-
ceived from others about the
City's recycling .program, the
trash, and the heavy loads of de-
bris scattered all over north Port
St. Joe. During this discussion,
special interest was directed ito
the care of the handicapped and
the illiterate residents of the en-
tire City of Port St. Joe who were
charged for not being able to re-
cycle their garbage.
After thoroughly reading the
report of the City Commissioners'
and the mayor's response to oth-
er issues printed in the March
21, 1996 local Star paper, we no-
tice that our concerns were mis-.
takenly left-out. It was obvious to
all present that the mayor gave a
lengthy response to all our Issues
raised. In a vehemently manner.
he responded "you people over
there needs to clean-up that filth
and mess."
The local Star paper is very
important communication to peo-
ple whoksupports our diligent ef-
forts to better the living condif-
tions in Port St. Joe. When the
citizens of north Port St. Joe un-:
selfish acts in working together,
comes before the commission,
and the publisher not print'this
in the Star paper; this gives a
false and uncaring impression
about our neighborhood, to our
supporters.
During each opening of the
City Commissioners' meeting we,
all (the commissioners, the pub-
lisher, the citizens) pledge to the
flag and pray to our father to bet-
ter community, but at the end of
the meeting some of us practice
the opposite.
Your efforts to correct this
mistake in the future will be ap-
preciated. It is pleasing' o ob.u
supporting readers to read that
our diligent efforts are for the bet-
terment of the community-
Liberty and Justice for All (handl-
capped. Illiterate, and certain in-
dividuals). Thank you..'

When Was It 8
With this global warming, I
.suppose everyone is aware" that
the winters will be colder, and the
summers will be warmer.
This, indeed, has been a
harsh winter, but I remember '"
teaching one day at what' is now
the Port St. Joe Elementary
School when the thermometer
showed eight degrees.
I should like to know what
year that was. And if any stu-
dents, remember that extremely
cold day, I should like to hear,
fromithem.
During a recent visit to my
beloved Gulf County. I learned
that precious few people know
Wayne and I have moved perma-
nently to Alabama: therefore. I
am going to give my new address:
Rt, 2
Box 160'C25 '
Heflin, Alabama 36264
The Star has become even
more precious to us, now.
Most Sincerely.
Margaret Key Blggs

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE _
A COMPLEX PROBLEM

S High pressure can mean anything from a local weather report
to a persistent salesman. But when you insert the word "blood"
in between, it takes on its most important meaning a sign of a
: disorder of the body's cardiovascular system. The effects of high
blood pressure and certain of its causes produce injury to the
heart, the blood vessels and the organs they supply.
There are a great many prescription medicines that a a

What Is A Physician Assistant?


Physician Assistants (P.A.'s)
provide a significant amount of
the medical services available to
Franklin County residents. They
are among the most visible, ac-
tive. and respected members of
the healthcare community and,
yet, many people don't fully un-
derstand their role. A question of--
-ten asked by patients Is "What's a
PA.?"
A physician assistant (PA.)'is
a highly skilled healthcare profes-
sional who provides a broad.
range of medical services, in both
primary care and specialty areas,
under the supervision of a li-
censed physician. The physician
does not need to be physically
present when the PA. provides
medical services, but must be
.available for telephone consulta-
,tUon if needed. A P.A. always
Works under physician supervi-
sion and the supervising physi-
clan always maintains overall re-
sponsibility for patient care. And
the 'scope of a P.A.'S practice is
determined by the supervising
physician working within the
framework of the state regula-
tions.
The P.A/physician relation-
ship permits a broader distribu-
tion of. health care services and
improves the access to those sei-
vices, especially in rural and
medically under-served areas. Pa-
tient waiting time is reduced and
there is more time for questions,
counseling and education. This
helps to increase the level of pa-
tent understanding and compl-
ance, which in turn reduces the
cost of health care delivery.
Flexibility is the byword for a
physician .assistant, especially

Selecting a lawn grass for
Florida's sandy soils can be a ma-
jor task. Focusing on the advan-
tages and disadvantages of the
varieties most commonly grown
in Florida should be given top pri-
ority by homeowners.
Centipede grass produces a
medium lawn with good shade
tolerance and very few mainte-
nance problems. The biggest
drawback with centipede grass is
its poor salt tolerance. So, we
don't recommend it for beach
areas. My information on starting
and caring for a centipede lawn
was provided by Extension Urban
Horticulture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black, located at the University of
Florida.
Several types of centipede
grasses are grown in the United
States. But here in Florida, we
use only common variety.' You
can start a centipede lawn with
sod, sprigs, or seeding is the most
common method.
It's best to plant centipede
seed between April and Septem-
ber. Planting just before the rainy
season is ideal because you must
keep the soil continuously moist
until the seedlings are well estab-
lished.
It you've never bought centi-
pede seed before, you're hi for a
mild shock when you get to your
garden center. At first glance, the
seed price seems outrageous.
But, seeding is still cheaper than
sodding or springging 'that's be-
cause a little seed goes a long
way. In fact, four ounces of centi-
pede seed is enough for a one
thousand square foot area. That's
good news in terms of seed cost.
But, it can be bad news when it
comes to spreading the seed over
the lawnsite. You'd have a hard
time spreading such a small
amount of seed evenly over such
a large area. So, mix the seed
with some kind of carrier, such
as sand, to make it easier to dis-
tribute.
Once you get the seed in the
ground, one of the most impor-
Stant factors in establishing your
centipede lawn in proper fertillza-


tion. Unlike many plants, centi-
pede grass needs very little ferti-
lizer. In fact, the more fertilizer
you apply the more serious pest
problems become. In most cases,
one yearly application of 15-03-

be losing color. Jist don't add ni-
trogen in late summer or early
fall. Centipede grass that's had a
lot of nitrogen will brown off very
quickly after a frost and lose its
cold tolerance.
One of the common problems
with centipede grass is chlorosis,
or yellowing, caused by iron defi-
ciency. As we said earlier, centi-
pede likes acid soil. If your soil is
too sweet (too alkaline) the grass
can't get the iron it needs. You
control iron chlorosis by lowering
the soil pH, or by adding an iron
fertilizer usually ferrous sulfate or
an iron chelate (KEY-late).
Centipede pest problems in-
clude insects called ground
pearls. These can be especially
troublesome, because there's no
good control available. Lawn cat-
erpillars, grubs, or crickets, and
nematodes, also damage centi-
pede. For pest control inforia-
tion check with your garden cen-
ter or County Extension Office.

I, ng and mental hdeth center it is not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment ser-
'v es. ,,. : .


SDear Counselor,
S,: My son has Attention Deficit
Spisorder andtakes Ritalin twice a
day. I'm worried, about, him
becoming addicted to it, or it
causing him to want to experi-
rpent with other drugs. What can
;you tell me about it?
Worried Mom
Dear Momn,
First, let me say. I am not a
;medical doctor and you really
need to talk about your concerns
with the doctor who prescribed
the Ritalin. However, I can tell you
That aggressive treatment of
Attention Deficit Disorder using
medications, education and coun-
seling has the most promising
outcome for students like your,
son.
Think of the Ritalin as a pair
,of eyeglasses, not as an antibiotic.
It's something your son will need
over a long term. If it appears your
son is having some undesirable
side effects, go back to your
physician for some "fine tuning".
S It takes a little time to find the
optimum dosage for any of the
medications used to treat
Attention Disorder.
Recent research indicates
that Ritalin can cause a 94%
improvement in behavior and a
76% Improvement in paying
attention to task. Ritalil is a stim-
ulant, and it should not be given
to individuals with a history of
Drug abuse or dependency.


However, I would not be con-
cerned about addiction when the
medication is monitored by a
physician or case manager and
the other two things (education
and counseling) are present In
addition, there is no particular
relationship between the use of
Ritalln that is effectively moni-
tored and future drug experimen-,
tation.,
Once again, let me emphasize
that medication alone has not
shown the greatest benefit in the,
treatment of Attention Deficit
S Disorder. Too often, children are
prescribed Ritalin or another
medication and no parental coun-
seling and educational services
are obtained. If your child Is to be
considered for medication, be '
sure that you work with your
physician, a mental health profes-
sional and your child's teacher.

One drink too many. A lapse
In attention when behind the
wheel. Horseplay. Those are just
a few of the things that can lead
to an accident on Florida's water-
ways an accident that all too
often can turn deadly.
As it has for 18 of the past 20
years, Florida once again leads
the nation in boating fatalities.
And once again, officials with the
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission (GFC) are urg-
ing boaters to take precautions
while the agency makes Its own
plans to fight the problem.
Many GFC officers are cur-
rently undergoing rigorous train-
ing In BUI (boating under the In-
fluence) enforcement, accident
reconstruction, water rescue and
boating safety. Three officers have
been selected to attend a prestig-
ious course directed by the U.S.
Coast Guard. The National Boat-
ing Safety Instructional Course
began March 4 at the Coast
Guard Reserve Training Center In
Yorktown, Virginia. and lasts .two
weeks. Highly trained officers
can prevent tragedies on the wa-
ter. so the course will give the
GFC yet another tool to Improve
boating safety efforts.
'The better prepared we are.
the better able we'll be to stop ac-
cidents before they happen," said
Capt. Paul Ouellette, the GFC's
boating safety coordinator, who is
attending the Coast Guard
course. "And If we can't prevent
an accident, we want to be ready
to take action when one happens.
That means helping victims with
first aid. finding who's responsi-
ble and finding out why it hap-
pened."
GFC officers were once again
kept busy during the 1995 boat-
ing season. They investigated 254


accidents on Florida's freshwater
waterways (which include 12,000
miles of rivers and streams and
three million acres of lakes and
impoundments). Those accidents
led .to 29 deaths and 146 injuries.
Thirty of those accidents were al-
cohol related. However, more ac-
cidents may have been prevented
because of GFC preparations. Of-
fiders dedicated nearly 92,000
man-hours to boating safety pa-
trols:in 1995. They checked more
than 155,000 vessels and han-
Sdied out 3,223 boating-related ci-
tations and 6,656 warnings, the
majority for vessel safety viola-
" ions.
Current statistics point to a
new alarming trend the possible
danger involving personal water-
craft (PWCs). There were 501 ac-
cidents involving PWCs In 1995.
and that accounts for 38 percent
of all accidents reported. PWCs
are also the fastest selling seg-
ment of the boating industry.
"It's just another thing for
people on the water to worry
Aboutt" Ouellette said. "People op-
erating PWCs need to be aware of
what's going on around them at
all times. Around swimmers or.
other boaters, attention and pre-
caution are the keys to safety.
'The GFC is also taking steps
to stop potential problems in that
area. Some of our officers now
use PWCs to patrol, and they re-
ceive specialized training before
they do so. Our officers are also
working closely with PWC rental
companies to help train their em-
ployees and customers in safe
boating." -
Ouellette said better prepara-
tion is becoming more and more
necessary as Florida grows. More
people are coming into the state

GCCC Students: Fee

Payment Is Different


Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege is in the midst of a major
computer system conversion that
will impact all of the college's op-
erations. According to Computer
Services Director Herman Dan-
lels, the conversion is occurring
In response to state requirements
for reporting.
',The college has become a
member of the UNISYS Consor-
tium, a group of five state com-
munity colleges that will share
and modify software programs to%
provide continuity in reporting to
the state." Daniels said. "Ulti-
mately, this consortium will pro-
vide savings in computer opera-
tions."
In addition to Gulf Coast,
Pensacola Junior College, Seii-
nole Community -College, Pasco-
Hernando Community College
and Polk Community College are
participating in this consortium.
While college personnel are
learning the new system, stu-
dents will also be impacted by the


conversion. "It's important for our
students to understand that we'll
be registering them a little differ-
ently," explained Director of Ad-
missions and Records Roy Smith.
"Understanding the payment of
fees will be especially important
for them."
Smith said that: students
should ensure that, after their
Jees are paid by scholarship.

they receive a statement with a
.balance of zero. If students have
gone through the registration pro-
cess and their statement doesn't
show a zero balance, they are at
risk of being dropped from their
classes.
.Students should check with
the omfce or organization that
. provides their funding to discuss
this problem.
'"In the long run, our registra-
tion process Will be quick and ef-
ficient. In .the meantime, we're
asking our students to be patient
with our changes."

God's Garden
Easter has come and

the next year? I believe
that now is the time to
plant a spiritual garden. In
2 Corinthians 9:6 we find,
The point is this: he who
Oliver F. T sows bountifully will also
Oliver F. Taylorb
sition Minister, reap~ bountifully." Many
United Methodist Church people are planting gar-
dens of vegetables and
flowers. We love the beauty of the flowers, and
the taste of th'e vegetables. Fresh vegetables
feed our bodies with good nourishment.
As Christians we need to sow some seeds in
our community of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The time is now when the story of Easter is
afresh in our hearts. Easter has come,, but we
need to continue it throughout, the year. Let's
sow.God's Garden bountifully so the beauty of
our Saviour will be seen in our lives.

NEWS ROUNDUP

from Tallahassee
by JACK HARPER


Both Good and Bad


Bills Are Currently


Active In Legislature

Marine Fisheries Commission to Recommend
A Partial Ban on Twling for Baitfish
IT'S GOOD BILL-BAD BILL ALERT TIME IN SESSION
It's good bill-bad bill alert time in the Florida Legislature just past the
halfway point. There's also a little bell-weather proposal that the Piney
Woods Committee headed by Uncle. Clem Rednek on:Flat Creek in
Gadsden County says will show just how well lawmakers are looking after
the folk back home.
An obviously good bill that's not expected to go anywhere would give
parents vouchers for their tax' dollars which they could use to pay for
tuition for their children at public or private schools. It passed 5-4 in the
Senate Education Committee, but is considered dead-on-arrival in the
Florida House and would face Gov. Lawton Chiles' veto. Instead, a,
watered down plan for charter schools-approved by district school
boards but relieved of their rules-to get tax money for children whose
parents chose to send them has a much better chance.
Some good news are bills that have already passed Senate and House
education committees that would let the governor and cabinet stop fund-
ing consistently low-performing school districts if--after three years--ho
improvement is seen in them. Sounds drastic, but it's probably the only
way taxpayers can get the attention of school officials who want to con-
tinue Just throwing more money at problems without solving them. This
Is a hot one. It'll probably be one reason lawmakers will be called back for
an extended session this year, as usual.
Another good bill, (this one in the House) would cut $8 million from
the Florida Parole Commission's $10 million annual budget. Florida has-
.n't released a prisoner because of overcrowding since December, 1994. A
Slaw requiring prisoners to serve 85 percent of their sentences has elimi-
nated decisions on early release. Outright abolishment for the parole
commission would be best. Its duties could easily be assumed by the
Department of Corrections. Abolishment is a better idea; of course, but
'difficult to achieve in old Taxahassee land:
A bad bill providing binding arbitration for public employees would
give appointed "special masters" the final say in labor disputes, bypass-
ing elected officials who now approve recommendations coming out of the.
hearing process. Only two states now impose binding arbitration on gov-,
ernment bodies. Florida doesn't need to be among them.
It isn't expected to get through the Legislature, but then who would
have thought the 1994 changing of the rules on third party liability,
known now as the tobacco hit or trial lawyers' enrichment bill, could have
passed. Both are bad bills, the kind citizens aren't safe from as long as
the legislature is in session.
An in-between or "ho hum" bill that always seems with us,'allows the
spanking of children by parents unless it leaves cuts and bruises or caus-
es mental problems. It's aimed against state child abuse investigators
who decide when children are In "eminent danger" from spanking par-
ents. AlthoAgh passed by the Senate, the bill faces eminent danger in the
,House whie'Speaker Peter Wallace opposes. it...Gov..Lawton Chiles-says
'h may hot veto this one if It passes both Houses. His.staffers have-been
working with Sen. Jim Hargrett. D-Tampa, who proposed the bill which
passed in the Senate.
Another good but controversial bill is one that would exempt one of
the world's largest seawater desalination plants in the Tampa Bay area
from rate regulations by the Florida Public Service. Commission.
The plant proposed in Pasco County on the Anclote River could pro-
duce some 50 million gallons of drinking water a day to sell wholesale to
thirsty Pinellas and Hillsborough counties. It would solve, perhaps, the
frantic search for more water sources in the surrounding ruial counties
all the way up into North Florida. ,:
The question is whether government should let private enterprise
make the decision on solving the bay area's water problem? Or are inva-
sive conservation rules and regulations dearly loved by environmentalists
and their political brokers better than Just turning good old private enter-
prise loose?

Republican sen. Ginny Brown-Waite, Spring Hill, and Rep. Carl
Littlefleld, D-Dade City, didn't have any trouble quietly steering the bills
through both Houses. Now Gov. Lawton Chiles' staff is studying it.
The bell-weather bill that will tell us if this present crop of lawmak-
ers really "feel the pain" of consumers would loosen the strangle-hold
dentists have on the dentures industry. It's known as the "Tooth Fairy
Bill" for the elderly in Florida who now pay two to three times more for
their dentures than residents in seven states and Canada where dentists
were cut out as the middlemen.
The bill eliminates present law that says a dentist must give a dental
lab a work order before it can repair or make dentures for a customer. An
Oregon study showed.denturists were charging an average $584 for a set
of false teeth while dentists were charging an average $1,248.
The trouble is that the seven states got their good tooth fairy law
through the ballot as a constitutional amendment, not through the
Legislature where the dental lobby is powerful.
Lawmakers Say it isn't so in Florida by passing this good bill that is
fair to your toothless constituencies'.


Here's the Capitol News Roundup
SCHOOL FUNDING COULD EXTEND SESSION
A' House panel threw out Florida's 22-year-old funding formula for
public schools, proposing instead to finance education with grants to
counties based on number of students. It sets up a budget battle with the
Senate that observers expect will push the 1996 regular session into over-
'time.
What else is new?
Under the new proposals. schools would no longer get extra money
for gifted and disabled students or those who speak English as a second
language. Proponents say it would close the gap that now exists in fund-
ing per student between counties.
The House Appropriations education subcommittee also voted to use
money from the Florida Lottery to reduce class sizes, buy textbooks and
computers.
'This will help eliminate the disparity between school districts," said
Chairman Keith Arnold, D-Fort Meyers.
But it clashes with the Senate proposals to continue funding for the
gifted program. The Seriate would cut some $600 million from social ser-
vices to free money for educational programs. Those cuts. which would
eliminate more than 1,800 state jobs, have drawn fire from Gov. Lawton
Chiles, House Speaker Peter Wallace and teacher unions.
The House subcommittee would change spending priorities with the
$828 million the lottery gives schools, universities and colleges. It would
allot $200 million to cut kindergarten through third grade classes to 20
students maximum, $140 million to buy textbooks and $56 million for
computers.
NO $1.9-BILLION OIL DRILLING BOND, SAYS COURT
It's back to the drawing board for Gov. Lawton Chiles and the Cabinet
after the 1st District Court of Appeal ruled the state has no legal right to
require Coastal Petroleum Co. to post a $1.9 billion bond to drill for oil off
the Gulf Coast.
The three-judge appeals panel said the constitution would not allow
the state to alter its contract with Coastal Petroleum that dates back to
'the 1940's.
'State officials said they would appeal to the Florida Supreme Court
on the point that Florida holds its land in public trust and has wide pow-
ers to protect them.
Comptroller Bob Milligan recommended the big bond after environ-
mentalists estimated it would cost that much to clean up in the event,of
a massive oil spill.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
'You can't pick out a single industry. It's probably unconstitutional."
U. S. Senate President Bob Dole in Miami when he was asked to support
a penny-per-pound tax on sugar to restore the Florida Everglades.
Instead, Dole said, he wanted to see things happen, not more stud-
ies, regulations and court cases.,
PARTIAL BAN ON TRAWLING FOR BAIT FISH
The Florida Marine Fisheries Commission will recommend a partial
ban on trawling for bait fish to the governor and Cabinet.
It will allow.fishermen in the Panhandle to use trawls to catch bait
fish in state waters April 1 to Nov. 15 during peak fishing season. it bans
their use year-round along the rest of Florida's coastline, one mile off the
Atlantic Coast and three miles off the Gulf Coast.
Trawls are not covered by the state's commercial fishing net ban
passed in a constitutional amendment in 1994 which became effective
last July. .
