PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 3245. THURSDAY, JUNE 6,1996


Wewahitchka Turns Down

Offer of "Free" Building
The City of Wewahitchka looked a gift horse in the mouth in a
special meeting Saturday and decided it was just too much for
the City to take advantage of at this time.
Health South Corp.. of Panama City had made an offer of a
free 12,800 square foot metal building to the city, but the "gift".
had strings attached to it which the city commission felt would
cost just too much for the deal to be consummated. The building
was offered to the City at no cost but the strings attached were
too costly for Wewahitchka to get involved in with the deal. There
was considerable cost involved for the City to be responsible for
with the moving and renovation of the building for use.
The Commission had been given only to June 30 to have the
building moved to Wewahitchka and the board also felt this didn't
allow for enough time to get the arrangements accomplished.
In light of the expense Involved in moving, renovation and re-
modeling along with having to meet the moving schedule, the
Commission felt they had no alternative but to pass on the deal,
however attractive the offer appeared to be.
City Manager Donald Minchew told The Star the City of Wewa-
hitchka was dropping all efforts to secure the building and have it
moved. "We just couldn't meet the time-table, among other
things," he said.

About Who's In Charge
E Gulf County Supervisor of

Robiison told the board, that

Robinson told the board that in
the' past the city auditor and
P. clerk has managed the actual vot-

qualified candidates, city voters,
and provided voting machines for
the city to use.
..."In the past, Mr. Farris has

If it continued.
PERSONNEL
Board Chairman Billy Traylor recom-
mended the board hire two new employ-
ees to work at the road department. He
said the department had lost some work-
ers through retirement and disability and
was not able to keep up with its. current
work load with the present number of
employees.
During discussion, Commissioner Mi-
chael Hammond said some of the work
load would decrease after the county fin-
ished its road paving project questioning
the need for two full time workers at that,
time.
Commissioner Warren Yeager sug-
gested the board hire one permanent and
one temporary employee to solve the
work load problem and make a determi-
nation concerning the temporary worker.

THE STAR

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JUNE 6,1996


Welcome!!

To Our New Business Family
IT'S WITH MIXED FEELINGS that we,' as a community,
mark the happenings of this past week end and its tremendous
impact it is bound' to have on our community.
Of course, we're talking about the culmination of the sale of
St. Joe Forest Products Company, after over a year of making ar-
rangements. We all knew the day was coming, when the final
shoe would be dropped, but it Would be less than candid to say
that the entire area has been apprehensive, if not downright dis-
turbed; over the pending change of the guard.
We have had wonderftil relationships with- St. Joe Paper
Company for the past 59 years of our living together. Actually, it
has seemed more like a marriage than a relationship. We have
understood one another well. In most instances we have never
had to question how the other felt about some pending change.
We knew one another's philosophy well enough tq know, or sus-
pect, what the answer would be and we made pur long-range
plans around that familiar understanding. It wasn't a mutual
understanding at all times, but it was "an understanding, of why
you have a certain opinion" type of arrangement. Everybody
knew where they stood at all tirpes because of the familiarity we
had with one another. ,
TODAY, THINGS ARE DIFFERENT. We6 don't say that the
same situation will exist or will not.I We just expect a different
type relationship, and anticipate a good one. We have every rea-
son to believe that after the blanket is finally shaken out 'and
put back on the bed, we will be able to liein it very comfortably.
We do not see, yet, where the community will suffer at all
with the change-over. We see nothing drastic in the winds of "do-
ing things differently" which will' adversely affect lour community
as a whole.
A few positions at the paper mill will be re-arranged. A few
will be eliminated entirely; but we see no changes which weren't
already in the making, eventually, before the mill was sold. In
other words, we're not walking down a different path entirely
here.
WE WANT TO TAKE THIS opportunity to say "Welcome to
Port St. Joe" to Florida Coast Paper Company and its. staff. We
know you'll like Port St. Joe. We feel, and fervently trust Port St.
Joe will enjoy having you here as well.
You will find this to be a close-knit community which sup-
ports its own. You are now one of us, so we will supportt you and
extend to you the hand of greetings to be our new neighbor liv-
ing in the big house formerly occupied by St. Joe Forest Prod-
ucts Company.,
We're welcoming you as a good neighbor, as is our habit
around here. You'll have to prove it to us, if you're not to be.
If, for the next day, week, month, year, or two, we still refer
to you as "St. Joe Paper Company", please realize it is from force
of habit and nothing more. After all, it was just about a half-
dozen years ago that the name was changed to "St. Joe Forest
Products Company" and the mill is still commonly referred to as
"St. Joe Paper Company".
Please consider it a compliment as well as a force of habit to
be referred to by the more familiar name for a period of time.
They were good folks; the kind you Would be proud of having a
name association thing \v1th. '



Hurricane Se ason
THE HURRICANE SEASON has been with us since this past
Saturday, and is scheduled to hang around until November 30.
We didn't realize any weather-related happening had such de-
fined seasons they could start and stop. on a,certain date, but.
thfe weather bureau says this sso. I
Here It is a new hurricane season and we. haven't completely
resolved all the problems caused by Hurricane "Opal" which vis-
ited us during the past season, yet. There is still'cleaning tip, re-
building, and trying to collect on damages incurred by "Opal".'Of
course, every once in a while we read where there is'still recov-
ery going on following "Andrew" down in the Homestead area, soQ
we can't be too disheartened by any delay we might have. .
THE THREAT OF A NEW season anrd the destructive storm
or storms it may bring, doesn't seem to have dismayed folks too
much, however. There seems to be'a race to fill up all the water-
front lots-the most vulnerable to a hurricane-rwith new build-
ings here in Gulf County before another storm comes along.
But, then, why shouldn't they? It's,a known fact around here
that Gulf County is the best place in the world to live .. even ff
you do have to. dig out from under a storm every once in a great
while.

Hunker Down with Kes ,



It's Not A Beltone Problem


,I believe all teenagers: have
some type of, hearing disability.
Now, I haven't done any exhaus-
tive research on the matter but I
have tried to get a few simple re-.'
quests and even a demand ,or two
over to the teenagers in my own .,
home. Sometimes they hear me, '
but more often than not my com-
munication attempts are thwart-
ed by their seeming inability to
catch any audible sounds.
My Dad referred to this phe-,
nomenon as "the ears of stone"
syndrome.


Back in my very early teens
me and Leon and David Mark-
would be sitting out on the porch
"resting off" a breakfast of ham,
eggs, molasses, sawmill gravy
and about five of them big cat
head biscuits apiece. I mean. we
kept eating those double-fisted
sized biscuits 'til the gravy and
molasses ran out or we explod-
ed-"Boys." Dad would still be at
the table finishing his fifth or
sixth cup of coffee, "Ya'll get' on
down to the field, start on the cot-,
ton, I'll be down directly."
"Yes sir.,"
Let me pause here to explain
a hearing impaired teenager's..
"yes sir". It's not. the quick, perky,
roger willco over and out, I
got 'cha "YES SIR!" It's more like
the low. slow, perfunctory, I'm -


not here right now If you -
will leave your number and
- a short message I'll get -
back to you, lost in space. floa-
tin' down the river with Huck
"yesssirr."
We said yesssirr, but we
didn't move. Maybe we didn't
hear him Just right. Maybe he
meant afterwhile. I was trying to
let that last biscuit get all the way
to the bottom-
We heard his chair scrape
back onh that kitchen floor. His
"scrape back sounds" also had'
their own particular nuances.
This was the mad I'm coming -
to find out what's going on
- scrape-we vacated the porch
even before his, "You boys got-
ears qf'stone, get moving!" could
reach us.


My sons have inherited their:
hearing from their uncles.
As a junior high student Josh
liked his T.V. "Son, it's time for
bed."
"Yesssirr."
"Son, turn it off, you've got
school tomorrow."
"Yessslrr."
"JOSHI Do you hear me?"
"You mean, right now?"
I can still see him, walking
ever so slowly toward the T.V.,
milking every second he could. I'd
scrape my chair back, hard and
fast-that little trick is not so in-
timidating on carpet. .
"- Jesse, we've got to get the
trash out tonight."
"Yesssirr."
'Course, there is no percepti-
ble movement. "Jess.."
"Yesssirr."
"Jesse, there's a giant tidal
wave that's about to hit the house
and right in front of it is a two
foot, one-eyed, one-homed, green
people eating, slime emoting crea-
ture that's already' captured your
mother and your brother and if'
we donrt get out'of here in five
seconds we're going to be eaten
alive"
"Yesssirr."
If you don't think my boys
have a' hearing problem you
should be riding down the road
with them when that Dwight Yoa-
kam character comes on the ra-
dio singing about those "guitars
and Cadillacs ....;
This 'hearing thing can be a
tad dangerous. "Jess, I've got a
baseball banquet, how- about
turning off the sprinklers."
"Yesssirr."
I get home several hours later
and my shed has floated over to
my neighbor's yard. Kids are wa-
ter skiing in my front ditch. Sue-
Cat, Too has taken refuge on the
roof. There's a film crew out,
scouting the place for Moby Dick,
II. I snorkel in to the house.
"JESSE!"
.Oh,. the .sprinklers!, Don't
worrybada, I'll get 'em."
And I must report. there is
hope. Josh is almost twenty-one
now, has been off to the college
wars for two long years and I
have noticed a marked Improve-
ment In his hearing. "Son, you
want to help with the yard to-
day?"
"Yes sir!" And right before my
unbelieving eyes he sprang up to
the. lawnmower and willingly at-
tacked the yard.
It's a MIRACLE
Jesse has only got a couple of
teenage years left. Maybe he can
get an early start on "growing
out" of his hearing problem; I:
thought perhaps an article-get it.
out in the open-would help.
"Jess, I'm fixing to -write a
story on the" universal hearing
problems of teenagers and I'll
probably zero in on you. What do
you think?
"Huh?"
Respectfully,
S- Kes


Spelling Bee Words In Creek County Didn't I include. "vivisepulture "ervicorn


A 13-YEAR-OLD Florida.
eighth grade student has won the
national Spelling Bee champion-
ship by spelling a word I'm sure
she has never used before and
may never use again. She used it
that one time to win the $5,000
first prize, but she should never
need It again.
The word? It was "vivlsepul-
ture".
It's meaning? The word is not
one a person uses every day .
or every lifetime, for that matter.
It means "burying alive"'.
Knowing Its meaning-now--I
would have spelled it "vivisepul-
chre", and been wrong, but then I
didn't have to spell it and 111'
probably not have occasion to
even 'use it again.
The "Bee" waswon by Wendy
Guey of West Palm Beach. It was
Wendy's third trip to the competi-
tion but only her first win.
Nikki Dowdy of Houston, Tex-
as was the second place, winner.


She missed another uncommon
word, when she failed to spell
"cervicorn".

I REMEMBER BEING in the
fourth grade and, going to the
Creek County spelling bee' in
Bristow, Oklahoma a year or two
ago.
The contest was to decide the
county champion, but for the life
of me I don't know how I ranked
when the bee was over. I don't re-
member if I won first place, sec-
ond place, third place or 15th
place.
I do remember that we didn't


have words like "Ivisepulture" or
"cervicorn" to spell. I'm sure that
if we had, I would remember viv-
idly. I remember several other
things about that spelling bee.
simply because they were all
"firsts" in my young life and made
a lasting impression on me. .
I remember being selected to
compete in the competition, slm-
ply because it meant taking a trip
to another town to participate,'
even if the town was only 15
miles away. It was a county con-
test and as such had to be held
in the central and largest town in
the county.


I journeyed- to Bristow-
where my uncle lived-along with
my grandmother Ramsey, who
made her home with us.
We walked down depot hill, to
the Frisco Railroad train depot
and took the train the Bristow.
The best part of the day of
adventure came after the spelling
bee was over and I had taken
whatever honors I could. We still
had to wait for the train to return
home. We had time to kill and it
was around dinner time.' We
didn't go out to my uncle's house
to eat with his family. No sirl We
ate that lunch-dinner, to us-in
the favorite diner in Bristowl

THERE WERE NO McDo-
nald's, no Wendy's, no Burger
Kings, not even a Pizza Hut, in
those days. The comer luncheon
diner was in vogue and we had to
experience that "vogue".
Grandmother sat me down in
a booth along the wall and asked


me what we should eat. Well, the
epitome of eating, to me, in that
day and at that age, was a res-
: tauraht cooked and prepared
hamburger. I ordered one, along
with a cold drink and, ate high on
the hog that day. I was ready to
go to another spelling bee if it
meant getting to eat a real ham-
burger for dinner in a diner.
After dinner I got an opportu-
nity to even eat dessert! We only
had dessert on Sundays at home
and it was usually a cobbler
made "of, blackberries, peaches,
apples or whatever fruit hap-
pened to be in season. If there
were no fresh fruits to scrounge,
we had bread pudding or squash
pie.
"I'll have a piece of that cher-
ry pie," I said, just as if I did it
every day. "And put some.
whipped cream on top of it,'" I
added as if It were merely an af-
ter-thought. Actually I had been
eyeing that pie all the time I was


eating my hamburger, which tast-
ed like ambrosia itself.
The thought of the whipped
cream would be a luxury these
days,, but it wasn't then. Cool-
Whip hadn't come along then, so
we had to settle for old natural
whipped cream instead.
To this day, cherry pie topped
with whipped cream pr that oth-
er, modem, substitute, is my fa-
vorite pie.

OTHER MEMORIES of my
grandmother's time spent with us
had to do with her making us
help her prepare a garden every
year, pick potato bugs off the
vines, keep a fire going under the
soap-making kettle, or help with
the sauerkraut-making or storing
the potatoes, or cutting corn off
the'cob for canning.
But that trip to the spelling
bee made up for a lot of those
other memories.

MISUNDERSTANDING
The City Commission appar-
ently misunderstood Robinson's
role in the voting as they were
under the impression she was in
charge of the entire operation.
Mayor Frank Pate said "'here's a
misunderstanding here, as we
thought you were handling every-
thing when apparently we were
supposed to be performing the
actual mechanics of voting and
providing polling places."
Robinson said "I can make
you several suggestions which
will help your voting activities if
you would like. We can start vot-

eral million dollars.
The next question-where do
we get the money?-is the key to
the success of the program.sa
The plan calls for the estab-
lishment of an economic revitall-
zation trust fund with a goal of.
somewhere around 15 million
dollars to finance the plan over
the next 10-plus years. Money
would be generated through grant
applications and a suggested 1%
-real estate transfer tax.
Moore emphasized the impor- ,
tance of establishing an alliance.
with major property owners, eIpe-.
dally St. Joe Land and Develop-.
ment, in order to ensure success
in reaching the final goals of the
plan.
Port St. Joe City Commission-

We can also set up guidelines as

NO ACTION TAKEN
No definite action was taken
on the matter Tuesday night with
the board deciding to wait and
see if the state actually does
change the election laws. Ms.
Robinson had stated they were
being considered in the current
session of the legislature but said
she had received no indication of
any decisions made.
She stated "Something needs
to be done however because if
you have 3.000 voters turn out
after 5:00 p.m. to cast their ballot
you will really have a problem.
That was a big problem on May
14, 60e'/ of those who voted came
to the polls in the last two hours
they were open and created a Jam

Views On 'Dental Jeialth


Twilight sleep is the lay
term for conscious patient
sedation, a technique used to
allow people to/have dental
work done. while in a very
relaxed state, that is' very
nearly asleep.
This technique is useful for
people who are fearful or
nervous, as they are unaware.
of dental procedures being
done. The patient is not
unconscious, but his or her
consciousness is at a very low
level, hence the descriptive
term "twilight sleep."
Breathing, nitrous oxide,
among, other techniques, has
been useful for many patients
to achieve this state. People
are reporting very pleasing
results with this technique.

were unable to tolerate dental

There is no

* Faith Christian School Awards Six Diplomas to Graduating Seniors

In Commencement Exercises Held Friday, May 24 In Constitution Monument Park at 7:00 p.m. Ceremonies


Letter To The Governor


Written By Gulf County Commissioner


This letter -was written to
Gov. Lawton Chiles from County.
Commissioner Michael, Ham-
mond. A copy.of it follows.
Lawton,
To my chagrin and astonish-
ment, I rose on Saturday morning
to learn from the paper that you
had vetoed the school prayer bill.
This bill was near and dear to my
heart, and I had personally writ-
ten every- county commission
board in the state to request a
resolution, like Gulf County
passed unanimously, in support
of this voluntary school prayer
bill. Many of these counties did
respond ,and,..ent copies of reso-
lutions that-they-had also-yassed;-
* urging the legislature and y6u to
pass a bill simply giving back to
school children their first amend-
ment rights.
I was horrified when you sug-
gested that prayer should be re-
served for places of worship, our
homes, and our hearts. Prayer
should be everywhere. The first
amendment does not say that re-
ligion is protected only when it is
behind closed doors, or In pri-
vate; it protects "the free exercise
thereof'. This is precisely what,
the voluntary school, prayer bill


would do. It would protect the
voluntary, or "free" exercise of
prayer in public schools.
t Voluntary prayer is not an in-
trusion on the "minority" rights.
The simple fact that it is not al-
lowed is -the violation of rights.
Madeline O'Hare almost single-
handedly had prayer removed
from our schools. Her beliefs, or
lack thereof, have been forced on
several generations of school chil-
dren, but this bill could have
changed all of that. This would
have allowed basic American con-
stitutional rights to be restored to
school children.
Americans were taught
- throughout --the '-Cold War -that
Communism would not allow
Bibles and religious gathering.
and while Americans slept. our
freedoms were taken away by the
minority. '
Our country was founded on
Judeo-Christian principles, and
our laws are based on the same.
The line must be drawn between
religious freedom-"the free exer-
cise thereof' and the feelings of
the minority. It is about time that
the minority learn, to be the ml-
nority. It Is about time that the
minority learn to be tolerant of


Michael Hammond. ;


the religious freedoms that we 'are -
guaranteed, by the first amend-
ment, and the interpretation of .
religious freedom that was the
standard in the United States
from the 1780's to the early
1960's. It is past time for Chris-
tians to stand up for their rights
guaranteed by the constitution. I
am tired of my party and its lead-
ers either agreeing with or caving
in to these such groups.
Governor, what you have
done be vetoing this bill, is to
stick another knife in the consti-
tution, In the name of,protecting
the rights of a liberal minority.
This is the essence of liberalism
(humanism), a cancer. that is eat-
ing away at our society.
/s/ Michael L. Hammond

Staff members at both' The
News Herald and WKGC-FM were
named winners of the George C.
Tapper First Amendment Award.
The award is given annually by
the Tapper Foundation for excel-
lence in public service journal-
ism.
A $1,000 cash prize was
awarded by' Patricia Tapper War-
riner, chair of the George C. Tap-
per Foundation. Board. Judging
the competition this year was Dr.
SEd Weston, associate professor of
' journalism at the University of.
'Florida.
This year's George C. Tapper
First Amendment Award in Divi-
sion A, which pertains to newspa-
pers with a circulation of 30.000
or more and network television
stations, went to Catherine M.
McNaught from The News Herald,
for a series of articles on appar-
ent favoritism in the handling of.
drunken drivers by the Bay
County Sheriffs Office.
Warriner said that Mc-
/ Naught's coverage was enterpris-
ing, thorough, and tenacious,


documenting the problem
through the sheriffs own tapes
and persisting in covering the is-,
sue for months.,
Emily R. Lambaria of WKGC-
FM won the First Amendment
Award in Division AA, a category
that pertains to newspapers with
a circulation under 30,000, non-

tions, and all radio stations.

ia's four-part radio series in-
cludes articulate and compelling
interviews with social service pro-
viders and recipients. Through
her efforts, the extent of the prob-
lein is revealed, and strong anec-.
dotes and specifics drive home
the human aspects, Warriner
added.

by Warriper's father, Sen. George
C. Tapper, to recognize the excel-
lence that exists in the local me-

Dear Counselor,
I have been married for about
four years and it seems that dur-
ing the past six months or so, my
wife and I are growing apart. We
don't seem to spend as much time
together and when we do we don't
enjoy it. We don't argue or fight.
We don't talk much at all. My wife
and I have our things we like to do
and don't have much in common
anymore. There' Is 'no romance
and we don't have sex as often as
we used to. When we do, It is usu-
ally boring, unemotional, and
unsatisfying. Sometimes I think
that we no longer love each other
and that our marriage is over. I
don't know what to do. Will mar-
riage counseling help if there Is no
love? Should \We begin thinking of
divorce? Please help....


Hopeless Husband
Dear Mr. Husband,
You and your wife are experi-
encing a very common phase that
many marriages go through. It
seems as if "the honeymoon is
over" In your marriage and you
have both become very comfort-
able with each other-to the point
of indifference. You are right to be
concerned but It does not mean
your marriage is over. In fact, it
has just begun This is one of
those times when your vows and
commitments will pay off for you
and an opportunity to really
strengthen your marriage..
First you must understand
that "love" is a verb as well as a
noun. In other words, love is
something that you do as well as
an emotion that just sort of hap-
pens. The feeling will come andgo.
in any relationship but the act of'
loving is under your control.
Second, you must recommit to
your marriage and forget the
notion of divorce. You are married
for' life and for 'better or worse".
Once you realize this, you can do
some things that can rekindle the
flame in your marriage.
Make a commitment that you
will spend more 'time together.
Schedule a short 'period of time
daily and plan to get away from


Sunday, June 9 at 3:00 p.m. at

Qunty Guidance Clinic. Inc., a professional counsel-
replace psychological counseling or treatment ser-
your daily routines together. You
don't have to plan an activity or go
f someplace expensive. On the con-
trary, you should spend time just
communicating with each other
with as few distractions as possi-
ble. Since love is something that
you do. express your love for your
spouse even if you don't feel like
It. Send her flowers, cook her
favorite meal, do her chores for
her, or bring her coffee in the
morning. The little things you do
for her can go a long way. Don't
just do these things on special
occasions such as birthdays or
anniversaries. She may perceive
this as an obligation. When you
express your love at times when
you don't have to. you do .it for
only one reason: love. Show phys-
ical and verbal affection for her
when you do not feel affectionate.
Hug. kiss, hold her hand, and/or.
tell her you love her from time to
time. This doesn't take much time
but the effect can be life-chang-
ing.
Yes, marriage counseling can
help if both of you are truly com-
mitted to your relationship.
Marriage counseling is available
at the Gulf County Guidance
Clinic or through private practi-
tioners in the area. Feel free to
call us at 2Z7T1145 should you be
interested in counseling at the

Florida Has Mor
Watch out for those summer
thunderstorms, which began in
May here- in Florida and continue
throughout the summer. .That's
the advice of the National Weath-
er Service, which marks May as
the beginning of lightning season
in the U. S. Most Americans can
expect to witness roughly 30-35
thunderstorms from May through
September, with most occurring
in the central and eastern regions
of the country.
Lightning packs up to 100
million volts into a space of about
one inch. An average bolt holds
enough current to light a 100-
watt light bulb for three months.
The force behind this power Is re-
sponsible for over $250 million
dollars in property damage annu-
ally in the U. S. alone. Most of the
damage is to homes and busi-
nesses, with more than 30,000


Hurricane season officially

tion from floodwaters, and storm
surge.
The National Flood Insurance
Program (NFIP),. administered by
FEMA, makes federally-backed
flood Insurance available in com-
munities that adopt and enforce
floodplain management ordinanc-
es to reduce future flood damage.
Currently, nearly 3.4 million NFIP
policies representing over $330
billion worth of coverage are in
force in more than 18,000 partici-
pating communities. Flood insu-
rance may be purchased from In-

insurance agents.
"Flood losses are not covered
by homeowner's or business insu-
rance policies." Witt said. "This
coverage must be purchased sep-
arately, and is available only in
communities that participate in
the NFIP. And people need to
keep in mind that there is a 30-
day waiting period before a new..
flood insurance policy becomes
effective."
For a single-family home, the
maximum coverage amounts are
$250,000 for the structure and
$100.000 for Its contents. Maxi-
mum coverage for businesses are
$500,000 for buildings 'and
$500,000 for contents.

Guide For Elders
Another agency stirred to ac-
tion with the beginning of hurri-
cane season is the Department of
Elder Affairs, that has compiled
for distribution the "Florida Dis-
aster Preparedness GUide". The
guide, which is available in both
English and Spanish, includes a
wealth of valuable information
specifically for elders about hurri-
canes and how to prepare for
them.
Among the contents are:
checklists for elders to use
in preparing to evacuate' their
homes;
a hurricane tracking map
and interesting facts about hurri-
canes; ,
for those elders who have
"special needs" in an emergency.
a list of emergency management
offices in all 67 counties;
what to do in the aftermath
of a disaster.
Individual copies are availa-
ble to the public on request by
writing to: Disaster Preparedness
Guide, c/o Department of Elder
Affairs, 4040 Esplanade Way. Tal-
lahassee, FL 32399-7000. It also
can be requested by calling 1-
800-96ELDER (963-5337).
Hurricanes Hit The Internet
The non-profit United Home-
owners Association 'announced
on May 30 the availability of a
complete Internet reference sec-
tion dedicated to preparing con-
sumers for the 1996 hurricane
season. With the growing size and
complexity of the Internet, consu-
mers sometime find it difficult to
uncover pertinent information
quickly on the World Wide Web.
UHA has developed the first

recent' session by authorizing
$1.6 million to fill.50 previously
unfunded vacant positions. An
additional 50 positions lost
through attrition will also be
filled.
Two FHP recruit schools are
planned in Tallahassee; one dur-
ing the upcoming summer
months and another during the
first quarter of 1997, both lasting
24 weeks. 'We are reaching out to
every community in Florida in an
effort to find 100 qualified, col-
lege-educated men and women
who want to join the ranks of
what we feel is the premier law
enforcement agency in this state,"
said Colonel Ron Grimming, Di-
rector of FHP.
FHP officials anticipate that
attracting: quality applicants will
, be made easier due to additional
funding authorized by the 1996
Legislature, including close to. $1
million for new equipment, and a
7.9% pay increase for troopers,
effective January 1, 1997. The
pay increase will raise the start-
ing salary for troopers to approxi-
mately $23,000.


Patrol officials say that inten-
sified recruitment efforts will im-
mediately begin throughout the
.state, but admit that .Orange,
Hlllborough and Lee counties
have been prioritized due to being
labeled as areas in most desper-
ate need of troopers.

Applicants can expect to have
their background thoroughly in-
vestigated, including interviews
with current and previous em-
ployers, criminal history inquir-
ies, as well as close scrutiny of
military service, driver's license,
and credit bureau records. Appli-
cants will also undergo physical
and eye examinations, polygraph,
and psychological testing.

FHP has given preferential
consideration for employment to
applicants with two or more years
of post-secondary education since
February, 1994, while maintain-
ing a successful affirmative action
recruitment program. .

FHP has set a June 30 dead-
line for accepting applications for
its two upcoming recruit schools.

3600 Communications


So that's what 360 Communications does.


That's right. 360 Communications is indeed a cellular service company.
While the name is new, we're not, of course. Thanks to growth and experience we're
no longer a part of Sprint. We're an independent, publicly-traded company with a national
presence and 1.7million customers. We have all the resources we had before, and then
some. More importantly, our focus has not changed. We still want to make your life easier
and simpler through better, more convenient communications.
Why the name "360 Communications," you ask? To us, it's very descriptive of the fact
that our company is built around you from technology to customer service. It reflects
our network's ability to surround you and support you wherever you go. And that we'll
continue to serve you with the most innovative telecommunications services anywhere.
Unsurpassed cellular communications. That's what we do. With an exclamation.
Call toll-free 1-888-CALL-360 to learn our nearest location.
