Marina Red Tide Doesn't Make It to Gulf County Waters


Moved



to .Hess


Oil Site

Conceptual Plan
r Submitted to EDA
for Approval
With the City of Port St. Joe's
.recent acquisition of 28 acres of
property from Amerada Hess
Company, plans to build a pro-
posed marina on the Intracoastal
Waterway near Raffleld's Fisher-
ies were shifted in recent days to
the Hess property.
Plans to move the project are
currently being looked over by, the
EDA grant review board for their
stamp of approval to transfer the
project's nearly $700,000 in grant
funds to the site.
A conceptual drawing, pro-,
duced by Preble-Rish, Inc., would
require the removal of five of the
giant oil storage tanks from the
property and dredging out a por-
tion of the property to construct
the marina. Preliminary plans
call for 162 wet boat slips to be
built.
Plans also are to utilize one of
the oil storage tanks for dry stor-
age. Bill Kennedy (Preble-Rish
Engineer) estimated that one of
the tanks could be renovated to
hold approximately 69 boats in
dry storage. A ship's store, show-
er and restroom facilities, fuel,
and boat-ramp- would elso-be.4n--,
cluded in the project.
Marina Committee Chairman
Charles Costin, said the new site
would give Port St. 'Joe one of the
most accessible marinas in the
area. He based his statement on
the fact that deep water channel
access runs all the way up to the
docking area of the Hess proper-

Space is also available for the
construction of a restaurant, in
the future, along the edge of St.
Joseph Bay facing back toward
the old Maddox Homesite, which
iss currently being developed into
a bayside park and new home for
the Chamber of Commerce office.

The entire gulf coast of Florida has
been the victim of an annual red tide
Invasion during the month of June. ag-
gravated by the hot and dry weather
conditions which have hovered along
the area for the first two weeks of the
month and the last of May.
The red tide infestation is an annu-
al problem for Florida but not usually
this soon In the season and especially
not this far north. It reduces oxygen in
the water, causing a bacteria to bloom
which is especially virulent to fish.
The infestation had been reported
in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area ear-
lier in the month. Then, about 10 days
ago. it was reported to be off the Apa-
lachicola Bay area. Last week's issue
of the Apalachicola Times announced
that oystering was being curtailed in
Apalachicola Bay because the red tide


organisms were so prevalent in the wa-
ters there. Tests showed an acceptable
level of bacteria count in the Indian
Pass area, which is at the western end


of the bay and in Gulf County.
DEAD FISH REPORTED
Thursday of last week The Star re-
celved reports of dead fish washing up


on the shores of the tip of the Peninsu-
la; a sure sign the tide was approach-
ing.
An investigative tour of the Cape
San Bias and-State Park area by a Star
photographer failed to reveal dead fish
in any numbers washing up on the
shore. The lone dead shark, pictured,
was the only dead fish which could be
found. It was located at the beach area
of the State Park.
A thorough examination of the
beach, from the State Park back to In-
dian Pass, failed to show another dead
fish [singular].
The beach area, west of Port St.
Joe, was reported to be clear of any
fish kill by residents of the area in-
volved. It appears as if the red tide ei-
ther passed Gulf County by or else it
didn't get this far north.

WlGulf Receives Gift ofPuildieg

Will be Placed Behind Courthouse to Provide Office Space


In a special meeting of the
Gulf County Commission held at
noon last Wednesday, the board
decided to accept an offer from
Health South Corp., of a 12,880.
sq foot metal building as a "gift"
to the county.
The building, valued at more
than $500.000. Is currently locat-
ed at 707 W. 19th St in Panama
City and was offered at no cost to'
the county. The only catch to the
deal is that it must be moved
from its present location by the
end ofJune.
,During discussion the board'
voted that courthouse space had
long been an unsolvable issue
but with the acquisition of the


building they could find them-
selves with room to spare. They
intend to put the building near
the courthouse, possibly on the
west side of the courthouse along
Hwy 71, and move most of the
county departments out of the
courthouse and into the new
building.
The building department, wa-
ter department, veterans service,
emergency management, 911 and
the county administrator would
all relocate their ofces into the
new building with room to spare.
Fisher Construction Compa-
ny was awarded the engineering
bid to dismantle, move and reas-
semble the building at a price of


$78,400 including a concrete slab
floor. Southeastern Mechanical
also bid on the project.
Gulf County Chief Adminis-
trator Don Butler said the "gift"
included 100% of the building, all
the way down to the slab. Five
self-contained air conditioner
units, five alarm systems, tele-
phone system, electrical, water,
and bathroom fixtures all come
with the building, he said.
The City of Wewahltchka
turned down Health South's offer,
prior to the building being offered
to the county, stating that the ex-
pense to remodel and coupled
with the time limit they didn't feel
they could handle the deal.

DEP/County


Agree to Study



Beach Driving

Local Committee to Examine Possible
Damages That Might be Inflicted


During a workshop session
with DEP representatives Tues-
day afternoon--including Deputy
Secretary Kirby Green-the Gulf
County Commissioners worked
out a "common sense" agreement
with them. concerning DEP's
plans to recommend an end to
beach driving on St. Joseph's Pe-
ninsula.
The controversy over DEP's
recommendation to stop beach
vehicular traffic on.an 8-mile sec-
tion of the peninsula as part of a
revision to the St. Joseph Bay
Aquatic Preserve management
plan came to a boiling point at a
public meeting in March.
DEP representative, Ann Ma-
rie Hartman, justified their posi-
tion at the public meeting stating
that beach driving impacted ero-
sion problems, damaged vegeta-
tion, was a hazard to turtle nest-
ing and hatchlings, and there was
no Tegal access point to get onto
that section of beach. During
'Tuesday's workshop session with
the board, she recapped DEP's
position since that public meeting
stating, "We have not seen any-
thing that leads us to change our
position."
Speaking for the board, Com-
missioner Warren Yeager told
DEP representatives the reason
they called for this informal work-
shop was to discuss some of the
Issues concerning beach driving.
He stated his feeling that DEP
had not worked well with the
county on the issue, noting that
they were not even notified of the
question until a decision had
been made to recommend discon-
tinuing beach driving on that sec-
tion of beach.
COUNTY DOES IMPACT STUDY
Yeager told the panel that

Gortman Is

Gulfs Second

Hwy. Fatality

of the Year
Gulf County experienced its
second traffic fatality of the year,
Sunday, on State Road 71 south
of Forehand Road near the Hon-
eyville community.
Lester Byrous [Les] Gortman,
37, lost control of his vehicle, ac-
cording to a,report from the Flori-
da Highway Patrol. The investiga-
tion estimated the speed of his
1968 Dodge to be in excess of
100 mph. Gottman apparently
lost control of his vehicle, run-
ning off the east side of the high-
way at the intersection of Fore-
hand Road.
The impact completely re-
moved a utility pole, before his
vehicle came to test against a
large pine tree. Gortman was
trapped in the completely demol-
ished vehicle and had to be extri-
cated using the Jaws of Life. Gulf
County deputies assisted by We-
wahltchka Gulf County Rescue
Unit E-8 cooperated in removal of
the driver.
Gortman was a lifetime resi-
dent of Wewahitchka. He was a
maintenance man for the Gulf
County School Board.
According to the FHP, he was
wearing his seat belt at the time
of the crash. He was pronounced
dead at the scene of the accident.
The accident was investigated
by FHP Trooper Ron Hundley.and
homicide investigator, Cpl. Ver-
non Welch. ,

Suspense

Governor Draws It Out In Veto Signing
GOVERNOR LAWTON CHILES stretched out the suspense
involved with his bill signing right up to the final hour before he
put his signature [or withheld it] on several controversial pieces
of legislation, including the one which involved prayer in school.
Either he didn't rush into anything, with the bill decisions, or he
was playing for effect by delaying the decision regarding the final
official signature.
The Governor received possibly the most lobbying any gov-
ernor in history has ever received regarding the several items he
was considering right up to the final hour he could legally do so.
The pressure was applied. Arguments for and against were elo-
quent and mostly reasonable on both sides of the question.
The Governor earned his money this session, if he has never
earned it before!
SOME OF HIS MORE volatile bills to be considered for ve-
toes were the ones giving the state an advantage over the tobac-
co companies in litigation. That one was controversial, to say the
least. Then there were proposed laws which would allow Floridi-
ans: more of an advantage in challenging state regulations, wel-
fare changes, charter schools and of course, the biggie, volun-
tary prayer in schools.
The prayer in schools law was probably the most lobbyed
proposal to ever hit the legislature and the governor.
Most of us wanted it. A vocal group of citizens didn't. In the
end the highly vocal group finally won out. The governor saved
face in a sense in applying his veto, in that he issued a sensible
statement as his reason for opposing, which had nothing to do
with the reasons given by the many lobbyists in their argument
about why he should ax the matter.
WE'RE NOT GOING TO argue the pros and 'cons of why
prayer should officially be allowed in public schools. We will only
say that it is a cinch to be there as long as there are students at-
tending who are prone to depend on prayer. Exposing a student
to prayer who is not accustomed to depending on its power, will
not help-nor harm-him one iota.
As Governor Chiles stated in affixing his veto; "Prayer is a
personal activity." Itf'is that, and he can't veto it. Nor has he,
eliminated all prayer from school. It still goes on, despite the law
or&lack of law.
If we could somehow promulgate a workable law requiring
prayer to be held in every home, we may have something which
would benefit us. Prayer in school isn't the ogre its detractors
say It is. nor is it the panacea to all our social ills its supporters
claim it would be. Prayer has to be believed in to be of any use at
all.


Good Show!
JACK AND JILL went up the hill.. ..
Florida had the unique opportunity of sending three excel-
lent bas&ll ,teams to theCollege World Series baseball competil,
Uton this'year; something almost unheard of in college sporting
activities.
All three came home with less than a championship.
Miami, the lowest ranking of the three in the "seed" posi-
tions, played in the final game. And, what a game it waste They
were beaten out of the victory by a last inning home run by LSU
after they had tied the game in the seventh Inning. The Tigers lit-
erally clawed their way to the final victory.
BUT, WE CAN BE proud of the three Florida schools and the-
role they each played in the CWS. There were only eight teams in
an active capacity in the competition at the event. Three of those
schools coming from Florida speaks well for the baseball' pro-
grams being conducted in our state. They all gave anything but
a nursery rhyme performance.
It took another Florida school to eliminate FSU, and the Ga-
tors were dumped by LSU, the eventual champions. Ironically,
the Gators had defeated LSU the four times they met during the
regular season. The Gators were the higher seeded of the three
teams and didn't go easily.. FSU had respectability going into
tournament play. They had an excellent record this year, but,
unfortunately several of their handful of losses were to the Ga-
tors, during the season, and the Gators were their nemesis at
the CWS as well.
All three schools can be proud of their performance and of,
just being there where the big boys play for all the marbles.


I Got My Education


Out Behind The Barn'


I came home in the summer
of 1969 feeling my oats. I had
Just completed my -degree from
the distinguished and most
lauded University of the South.
With chest stuck out and diplo-
ma dangling from my very pres-
ence I was prepared to take on
the ..... .
"Son, you need to change
clothes,, we've got to clean up
that fence row behind the barn."
I stared at my father in dis-
belief. CLEAN UP A FENCE ROWI
IS HE NUTS? I have just gradu-
ated from a major university.
Ive got a degree! Cutting little
trees, and weeds arind wild run-'.


ning bushes with those extra
sharp thorns that are growing
up through the fence didn't
seem like fit work for a college
man. As a matter of fact, it was
about the most demeaning and
humiliating Job on the whole
place. Surely. he's just putting
me on ... .
"Can't today, Dad, I've got a
date with Debbie Dillard. We're
going to the lake-"'l
"I don't think so. We got to
take care of the fence."
"Daddy,. I told Debbie we'd
go to the-"
"Well, if you get out there
and hustle ya'll might could
make it by late afternoon."
Yeah, right. We both had,
plenty of fence cleaning experi-


ence. It was an all day job. I
thought about debating the is-.
sue with him. Listen, I'm twen-
ty-two years old. I've been off to
college for four years. I'm the
most educated man in my fami-
ly. Daddy dropped out of school
after the third grade because he
had to go to work. He doesn't
have a clue about college gradu-
ates and their goals and aspira-
tions and outlook .'....... ;Why
am I even thinking of discussing
the issue. Nothing binds me to
this old farm anymore
Besides, I don't think any-'
one can tell me what to do now.
.I reckon pad didn't hear
that commencement: speaker
with all the colored sashes
hanging off his, black robe tell


SA 6Day at the ,Bay


us what a bright class we were
and how "the world was waiting"
and how "we were the future
leaders" and "what exceptional
things lay ahead".
"Dad, I've only been home
two days. I need a little time off.
I've already had a bath. Debbie
is waiting. I promise I'll help
with that fence some day-"
"Kesley," I saw his chin
harden just a smidgen, that lit-
tle muscle in his temple
twitched exactly two times and
his eyes narrowed, piercing a
hole right through my forehead,
my college diploma and my in-
flated ego .... I had lost this
debate and he hadn't even got-
ten to the "this is the way it's
going to be" part. I don't think it
had anything to do with "a fail-
ure to communicate" either. I
believe it wa a case .of intellec-
tual knowledge versus experi-
ence. I'd seen those eyes narrow
before and hone in on me. Lis-
ten, there ain't no college profes-
sor ever been born that could of-
fer up that kind of intimidation.
At that very moment ."experti-
ence" took on a whole new
meaning for me. He leaned in a
little like I knew he would and
ever so calmly. finished his
thought,. "we're going, to eat
lunch and then you and I are
going down behind the barn and
work on that fence."
"Yes sir."
"And if your young lady
friend wants to see you bad
enough she can come over here
and help us."
"Yes sir."
I- will never forget Debbie
Dillard bouncing down those
stairs in her little sun suit and
sandals, "Hey Kes, I've fixed up
a picnic basket with drinks and
sandwiches .. "
"Uh, Deb -uh -uh, there's
been a slight change of plans."
She and Dad got along
greatly He let her have my gloves'-
and they worked the high side.
I'm on my knees, bleeding from
both hands, pulling some of the
toughest bushes I'd ever en-
countered from the base of the
fence. I tell you, I could have at'
least been on the tractor. Or lay-
ing out some salt blocks for the
cows. Anything but this With-
out a doubt he had me sweating
over the- lowliest job on the
whole place!
The "up top" crew, naturally,
were way ahead, "Mr. Colbert,
would you care for a Dr. Pep-
per?"
Amazing!
I have pondered that day for
years. My third grade educated
father is still the smartest man
I've ever known. He had me, at
that particular point, in my life,
exactly where I needed to be.
No. wonder they set aside a
day for him every year
Thanks a million,
Kesley


That Personal Touch AttractsNatonal Attention


EVERYBODY WHO HAS nev-
er experienced the personal,
home-town touch of doing busi-
ness with his neighborhood es-
tablishment, operated by neigh-
bors and friends, don't really
know what they have missed.
A WalMart-type operation
may suit you Just fine, but that's
because you have never experi-

ness and Its unique system of op-.
eration. You may never have had
the comfort or assurance of hav-

fy you completely, you are more

The act of doing business on
a handshake has more going for
it than it has defects!
The jot-'em-down-store had'
more going for it than a checker
board always standing at the
ready off in the corner, just wait-
ing for two people to sit down for
a game.


Those days are mostly gone,..
but most folks just don't know
what they are missing.

THE WALL STREET Journal,
issue of May 1, wrote an article
on just such a mariner of doing
business in the banking world
and I believe they kind of wrote in
a tongue in cheek style. They fea-
tured such a business style, oper-
ating in Gulf County.
Of course, they may have
considered themselves writing a
serious article. If so, they cap-
tured the attributes of personal-
ized customer dealings. The large
corporations, such as we see as a


common thing today, are able to'
look out for themselves. [Or, can
they?]
Giant corporations and con-
glomerates seem to be falling into
bankruptcy right regular, too.
The Journal featured the yest-
er-year style of doing business
and made it sound pretty appeal-
ing to anyone who had ever tried
to get a credit or an adjustment
from one of the corporate giants
and their computers. I have never:
seen a computer, yet; which knew
a person's name. You're strictly a
number to the machines.

fun of the giant corporate bank:

own '"Wewa Bank".
According to. the article, it,
operations hadn't changed mud
since the days of operation by it
founder, Mr. Dave'Gaskin. He op
erated from his big, desk in thi
comer, but he operated out of hit

that they still do business in the
old-fashioned way and are still

Has Suggestions to
Improve Voting
Dear Wesley,


I am writing this letter in re-
sponse to your recent editorial
concerning the 21% voter turnout
for the May 14th city commission
race between myself and Mr.
Wood. I agree whole heartedly
with the content of your editorial.,
I would like to offer what I consid-'.
er after talking with many people
since the election some possible
solutions. Hopefully, these ideas
will be considered by our city
commissioners and they will help
in the future.
The biggest deterrent experi-
enced by our citizens Is the 'loca-
tion in which they are asked to,
cast their ballot. The Fire station
is located in a very congested
area of town. The lack of ade-
quate parking. This was com-
pounded even more when one of
the local businessmen requested'
the City Police to erect a NO
PARKING sign in front of his
-place of business.
I suggest we make available 2 ,
(two) locations that the City al-
ready owns for future elections.
The Centennial Building and the
4' Washington Recreation Center.
Both these locations offer plenty
of parking space, accommoda-
tions to allow people to be out of
the weather and the elimination
of long lines to vote. Both loca-
tions are centrally located and of-
fer our citizens the best possible
site to cast their ballot.
Our City Commissioners
need to revise the city charter to
allow our County Supervisor of
Elections to handle city wide elec-
tions. This would allow for the
use of paper.ballots and the com-
puter scanning. Thus adding one,
more convenience for Voters in
our community. By allowing the
Supervisor of Elections to handle
this very important job we are
freeing up our city employees to
be able to do the 'jobs they are
trained for, thus eliminating any
possible confusion at the polls.
The extra costs of having 2
(two) locations will certainly be
brought up as to why we should
leave the Polling location alone.
However the safety of our Citi-
zens, the convenience of the pro-
posed locations and the possibili-
ty of being governed by a majority
of the registered voters make
these ideas appealing to a lot of
people.
I appreciate the 813 voters
that were able to make their
choice and look forward to the
day when those that tried to go
vote only to be turned away by
9 long lines and the need to take


care of other obligations will be
able to cast their vote in a setting
that is voter friendly.
Sincerely,
/s/ John Reeves
Citizen of the best little town
in Florida
Port St. Joe


Feels Left Outi
To the Editor: ,


I am writing this letter re-.
garding the article- in the May
30th edition of the STAR concern-
ing the W.H.S. Sports Banquet. I,
was very disappointed to see that,
the cheerleaders were not listed
among the honored guests de-
spite that many were In atten-
dance. Cheerleading Is just as
much of a sport as football is. It,
is the only sport where particl-
pants must work hard all year
long. As soon as one makes try-
outs and Is elected as a cheer-
leader he/she must begin practic-
ing for the Jamboree. After the
Jamboree the cheerleaders then
must "attend a week of summer
cheerleading camp, (and I can as-
sure you that this is no picnic,
the hours are long and hard and
much material must be learned.,
in a small amount of time). Then
school starts again and practice
begins for football season. Bas-
'ketball season quickly follows
and lasts until February. Try-
outs begin in March and the cycle
repeats itself.
Many have said "Cheerlead-
ing is not a-real-sport." This ab-
solutely kills me. Not only do we
work hard to be our very best but
we also have to raise our own
money for everything we do. And
furthermore, the money we work
so hard to earn is not spent self-
ishly on new uniforms and pretty
things,. but on travel to games,
bus drivers, gas, food, and other
expenses we may have., Our
cheerleaders just spent several
hundred dollars on a new mascot
costume to promote more school
spirit at games and pep rally.
Cheerleaders are there
through good and bad, win and
lose. It is Just always expected
that we will be there, but we re-
'ceive little or no credit for our ef-
forts. We may not beable to show
you a district or state champion-
ship trophy, or a record of wins
and losses, but we do dedicate
much time and hard work to be
the very best we can and it is
time someone stood up and
cheered us on for once.
Sincerely,
/s/ Amy St. Clair
W.H.S. Cheerleader

Flag Day is June 14th, there-
fore we share with you the follow-
ing, a moving monologue penned
by Thomas E. Wicks, a war vete-
ran and resident of St. Louis.
I Am Your Flag
I am your flag.
I was born on June 14, 1777.
I am more than just cloth shaped
into a design. I am the refuge, of
the world's oppressed people.
I am the silent sentinel of free-,
dom.
I am the emblem of the greatest
sovereign nation on earth. I am
the inspiration for which Ameri-
can Patriots gave their lives and
fortunes.
I have led your sons into battle
from Valley Forge to the bloody,
ridges of Korea.

Correction
In a letter to the editor writ-
ten last week by County Commis-
sioner Michael L. Hammond a ty-
pographical error occurred. The
last paragraph should read as fol-
lows:
"Our country was founded on,
Judeo-Christian principles, and
our laws are based on the same.
The line inust 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 tolerant
of the religious freedoms that we
are guaranteed, by the first
amendment, and the interpreta-
tion 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 liberal groups like the
A.C.L.U. dictating our state and
federal policies. And furthermore
* -'-I am-tired of my party and'-its
leaders either agreeing with or
caving in to these such groups."
We are sorry for any incon-
venience this may have caused.


I walk in silence with each of your
honored dead, to their final rest-
Ing place beneath the silent
white crosses, row upon row.
I have flown through peace and
war. strife and prosperity, and
amidst it all I have been respect-
ed.
My red stripes-symbolizethe
blood spilled in defense of this
glorious nation.
My white stripes-signify the
burning tears shed by Ameri-
cans who lost their sons.
My blue field-is indicative of
God's heaven under which I fly.
My stars--clustered together, uni-
fy 50 states as one, for God and
country.
"Old Glory" Is my nickname, and
proudly I wave on high.
Honor me, respect me, defend me
with your lives and your for-
tunes. ..
Never let my enemies tear; me
down from my lofty position, lest
I never return.
Keep alight the fires of patriotism,
strive earnestly for the spirit of
democracy. ;, ,
Worship eternal God and keep
His commandments, and, I shall
remain the bulwark of peace
and freedom for all mankind.
] am your flag.

Tate's' Hell Land Is

Bought for $33.3 Million


from the Apalachicola Times
On Wednesday, May 29, the
Florida Cabinet voted to purchase
more than 40,000 acres of the
swampland known as Tate's Hell.
The $33.3 million purchase will
give Florida ownership of over 60
percent of the area, The swamp-
land and surroundings state or
federally owned property will be
protected from development and
act as a natural preserve for this
area's black bear population.
With this land acquisition, Flori-
da' will possess more than
750,000 acres of protected land."
In 1990, Proctor & Gamble'
sold much of the land because a,
development plan for the area,
was never realized. The available
90,000 acres of. property were,
then purchased by the state.
With today's agreement, Flor-
ida will begin to restore portions
of the swamp to'the pristine habi-
tat that it once was. It will also al-,

la Bay and may aid in the
restoration of its waters.

June Lawn Care Practices


by
Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
June and July are months
when grass is growing at its full
potential. Mowing is not only a
chore but a -necessary mainte-
nance practice. To comply with
our conservation effort to reduce
the number of bagged clippings
going to landfills by letting grass
clippings lay in place, it may be
necessary to mow as frequently
as every five (5) days. The smaller
the clippings, the more easily
they filter back into the lawn and
become unnoticeable. These are
also months to watch for pests.
When an area in the lawn be-
, gins to yellow, React! Don't just
ignore itl! Usually the problem is
either one of an insect or a dis-
ease. A simple diagnostic test is
to mix two (2) tablespoons of any
soap into two (2) gallons of water
(but don't mix so vigorously as to
form suds) and then pour this
over two (2) square feet of grass
right at the edge of where yellow
turns to green. Wait a few min-
utes. If an insect is involved with
the problem, they'll soon climb to
the top of the grass to get away
from the soap. Chinch bugs, mole
crickets and caterpillars are the'
pests for which to look. If any of
those come up, treat with and in-
secticide. Check with local garden
centers or your County Extension
Service for what they have that
would work (Diazion and Durs-
ban are commonly used). If no In-
sect Is observed,, the yellowing is
due to something else and an in-
secticide will not help. It could be
a burn from a weed killer or a
problem with water (too much or
too little) but to play it safe, spray
for diseases. Daconil is .a com-
monly used fungicide that con-
trols a large number of diseases
on turf.
When spraying with an insec-
ticide or fungicide don't treat the'
whole yard! Help reduce needless
chemical application to our envi-
ronment. Treat only the affected
area and a ten feet border around
it. Mow a day or two before treat-
ing and don't wash the product in
unless label directions tell you to
do so. A second treatment In 10-
14 days Is required for most prod-
ucts.
With summer in full swing.
many ask when is the next ferti-,
lizer application. In an effort to
reduce.3he amount of chemical


applied, current recommenda-
tions are to either low analysis
fertilizers (such as 10-10-10 or
15-0-15 at low rates) or do not
fertilize at all in the summer.
Studies have shown that grasses
such as St. Augustine and Bahia
can go the entire summer with no
fertilizer if clippings are allowed
to fall back to continue to provid-
ing slow release nutrition to the
grass. It has also been demon-
strated by eliminating those high
. analysis fertilizer in the summer,
which produce a "bright green"
appearance pests, such as grey
leaf spots, chinch bugs, and lawn
caterpillars, can be reduced.
Mole crickets have laid their
eggs now and those eggs will soon
be hatching. If there was a prob-
lem with these insects in the lawn
this last year, now is the time to


try to reduce their number by
killing those young hatchlings be-
fore they become adults. To do
this, apply a granular application
of a product oftanol. Water it in
immediately (within a half hour of
applying), and this should stay in
the soil for the next two to three
months, killing all young crickets
as they hatch. Note that in the
past this treatment was recom-
mended for May. Studies have
shown that the hatch-out cycles
for this area are a little later than
once thought. It is therefore, sug-
gestbd that most effective applica-
tion period 'for the residual prod-
uct oftanol is June through mid-
July, Oftanol is only used once a
year for mole crickets and works
best on these that have only re-
cently hatched.


Flathead Catfish In C

Waterwa ys... and TI


The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission is, ,con-
ducting studies throughout 'the
panhandle to determine the num-
ber of flathead catfish presently
in its waterways. They were in
Gulf County last Tuesday, near
the Chipbla Cut-Off, and discov-
ered we have plenty of flatheads
for recreational fishermen to en-
joy., r '
In fact they want to encour-'
age fishermen to put the species
on their list of game fish to help
control flathead populations in-
waterways across the panhandle.
Gulf County Building Depart-
ment Director. Richard Combs.'
who accompanied FGFWF repre-
sentatives on their study told The
Star that approximately 500 flat-
head catfish were shocked-up
within a 1/4-mile stretch of the
study area. According to Combs,
the commission used an electrical
shocking device to' stun the fish,
then counted themin as they sur-
faced. The effects of the electric
.shock to the fish is only tempo-
rary, but does stun the fish long
enough toallow time to get an ac-
curate count of the number of
fish in the shock zone.
Game Commission officials
believe flatheads were introduced
into area waterways in' 1994

after effects created major flood-
ing throughout the Florida Pan-
handle and Georgia. As flood wa-
ters rushed downstream from
Georgia into Florida, officials be-
lieve some flathead catfish got
caught up in the flood waters,
making their way to Florida.
Flatheads are now reported to
be in every major waterway in the
western section of the state-
except for' the Choctawhatchee
R iver-including the Apalachicola
River, Chipola River and Dead
Lakes.
Local anglers wishing to gear-
up to fish for flatheads need to
know they can reach weights of
over 100 pounds, can live to be
25 to 27 years old and prefer live
bait The largest fish counted by
the Game Commission during
their local study was approxi-
mately 40 pounds.

Black Bears Are
On The Move
Ordinarily this time of year
most wildlife-related calls to.the
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission's Panama City office are
about snakes on the patio, or a
raccoon in the garbage can, 'but
this year there have been an unu-
sual number of calls about black
bears in and around urban areas.
The majority of the sightings
have been from Okaloosa, Santa
, Rosa and Escambia counties. Al-
though wildlife biologists prefer to
let bears return to natural habitat
on their own, sometimes that's
not possible.
Twice over the last two weeks
biologists have had to capture
and move bears from developed
areas of the panhandle. On May
26 they were called out to tran-
quilize a 325-pound male bear
near the housing area on Tyndall
Air Force Base, and again on
June 4 to relocate a 150-pound
male bear from Pensacola Beach,
a bear that twice swam between
Pensacola Beach and Gulf Islands
National Seashore. .
Both bears were relocated to
Eglin Air Force Base, where a
small bear population exists.
Wildlife Biologist Ario Kane
said these same or other bears
have also been spotted by home-
owners recently in Navarre, Gulf
Breeze, Baghdad, Jay, Beulah
and Eastpoint in Franklin
County. The reason for the sight-
ings Kane said is tied to the bear
breeding season.
"The breeding season basical-
ly runs from late May through-
July. and it's a time when adult'
males roam over a wider territory
looking for a mate." he said.
They're intolerant of younger
bears, which means the bear fam-
fly unit disbands and these 18-20
month old juvenile bears have to
find their own territory.
Kane said there has never
been a black bear attack on a-hu-
man in the southeast. He said if
you see a bear, simply give it
plenty of leeway. He said wildlife
biologists prefer letting bears find
their own way out of town, due to
the fact they have a tremendous
homing instinct and may not stay
where they're relocated.

Implants For


SMissing Teeth


If you have missing teeth,
you may want to consider a
dental implant. It is most often
used when you. don't have
enough natural teeth to anchor
down a fixed bridge. 'In. the
dental implant technique, a
device is surgically imbedded
into the jawbone and. a false
tooth attached over it. Usually a
special type of surgical stainless
steel is used for the base of the
implant.
The lower section of a
dental implant, imbedded into
the jawbone and hidden under
the gum, provides the anchor to
secure the implant into place.
The upper section consists of
one or more posts that extend
above the gum. A crown, fitted


and molded to resemble a
natural tooth, is then
constructed over the. posts.
There are several types and
designs of dental implants. One
of the most commonly used is
the endosteal blade implant.
This is- a metal blade with
openings or vents resembling
the holes in swiss cheese.
Natural bone tends to grow
through the holes, increasing
the stability and sturdiness of
the implant.

Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Summertime!!
If you recently heard a loud,
"whoosh," it was probably school
personnel releasing a collective
sigh of relief as the crunch of get-
ting report cards and summer
school letters out to parents was
finally completed. Some teachers
picked up checks and headed for'
parts unknown. A few lucky ones
made plans to teach summer
school and earn a few more dol-
lars.

commenting on how we could
now sit back, relax, and take it
easy until next year. Well. that's a
nice thought anyway! Unfortu-
nately, school and school plan-
ning is a year-round task that
never ends. This summer will be
filled with attempts to iron out
problems in the new block sched-
ule. As "glitches" appear (and
they will) I hope parents and stu-
dents will be patient as we work
through problems.
Summer school is off and
running and, as always, some
students did not show up. Later,
when it causes them problems
with graduation, I'm sure ,it will
be our fault because we didn't
personally invite each one. Some
will drag in a day late, but it will
be very. difficult to make up
missed time this year, so some
may have overplayed their hand.
The fall of 1996 will be elec-'
, tlon time, and many changes will
take place In our county, our
state, and our nation. :It's the.
greatest demonstration of people
action in the world as people vote
for the person of their choice.
You may not like the person

the summer sorting through the
local ads, the news, the speeches,
and the signs, and then make


your decision and stand by it.
Whether it be a vote for the
U. S. Presidency, or a vote for a

important and should not be cast
lightly without careful considera-
Lion of what the candidate will do

how many overdue library books
I've had in my lifetime I am going
to be in need of a lot of grace. I
grew up hearing about being in
the 'Book of Life' which sounds
like it might be in a library some-
where up there. I'm glad I never
checked it out. If I had, God
would have gotten it back after
, the third "We're going to take
your first born son if you don't
bring the bookback" note.
But in my defense, It's not my
'fault, the library monster is re-
sponsible for it all. He/she is the
one who makes me check out 20
books when I only have time to
read two in the time allotted, put
every single one of them in my
trunk, and forget about them for
months. He/she is the one who
tempts me to screen my answer-
ing machine when the librarian
calls to say very sweetly, "Turn in
the books or I'll call my uncle Al-
fonzo and put a contract out on,
you .... "You get the idea.
I've always loved books, so
I'm easy prey for this hideous
monster. I was very shy as a teen-
ager, and kept my nose in a book
until I learned that people
wouldn't bite (most of them), and,
I started talking to'folks. (Then I
wouldn't shut up. but that's an-
other story). I used to spend
whole weekends in the library on
the army base where my family
lived. The librarians of-some ten-
ure felt as though they had a

through my "Queen Victoria"_
stage, when that's all I wanted to
read about, then to the Gothic ro-
mances, then natural disasters.
like hurricanes, earthquakes, the
Crimson Tide football team .....
They knew me probably better
than,my family did.
My first job was in that li-
brary. And there I met others who
the library monster had attacked.
They always walked up with a
pile of books, and either put them
in the book drop and ran away
- quickly asIf that would keep us
from knowing they were overdue,
or push them at me quickly, and
act surprised when I commented
the books were due, say. in 1969.
"They were?" They would ask,
quite shocked. "Well, that'must
have been while I was at Wood-
stock." When I told them that the
event only lasted three days. they
gave me a 'smart alecky kid' look
and pleaded leprosy; the plague
and hang nails for reasons why
the books were late. But I knew
better. For, I had been afflicted
too-the library monster had got-
ten 'hold' of them.
They got off pretty easy. The
army library didn't charge fines,
but they did talk to your com-
matnding officer after a while. And
stories of monsters compelling
you to hide books from your self,
only got you locked up for obser-
vation. I'm not sure what excuses
they used. since I was military
once removed. (Daughter of a re-
tired soldier.) They couldn't exact-

Last week, I got a notice
about some books. Menacingly it
said "Last Notice." I began to pon-
der the possibilities. What hap-
pens after a "Last Notice". Do you
get tried under the frequent of-
fenders law? Do they take you
out and shoot you? Do they give
you dirty looks the next time they
see you at Ace Hardware? Prob-
ably none of the above (I hope).
But you do have to pay those
fines. Lovely little nickels that ac-
crue until they equal, if you're
like me, the amount of the na-
tional debt.
I returned the books after
that scary notice, quire humble,
,,. and after hours in the book drop
(Not to evade the fines, because
that was the only time I could do
it.) And now. I'm in hiding for a
while, because it's hard to look
those nice ladies in the faces, and
K say yet again, that the imaginary
friends of my childhood made me
keep the books out for a year.
When the time comes where I feel
the need to check out 30 more
books, I'll come in, humbly pay
my fine, (which is about the size
of a two weeks' paycheck, prob-
ably) and go out and do it again.

Father's

Day
In May we celebrated
Mother's Day. The third
Sunday in June is Father's
Day. As a child some called
me daddy's boy. Perhaps
this was because, I always
sat and listened when dad


told a story. He was a great
story, teller. Dad served in the Coastal Artillery
in Panama during World War 1. I listened in-
tently as he described life in Panama. The canal
and the jungle fascinated me. I dreamed of be-
ing an explorer in the Central American jungles.
Every person likes to be recognized as being
someone with worthwhile knowledge. We all
have a sense of adventure. MY DAD WAS MY
HERO. Someone recently said to me, "Where
have all the heroes gone?" For me they are not
gone. In Exodus 20:12 we find, "Honor your Fa-
ther .and your Mother." I honor my Father on
this day. How about you?'


Thompson Temple's
Father's Day Program
There will be a Father's Day
Service at Thompson Temple
F.B.C. on Sunday, June. 16th.


The speaker for the 11:30 a.m.
service that day will be Minister
Cleve Riley.
Everyone is cordially invited
to attend and share this service
with the church family.


This column is provided as a service of the Gulf County Guidance Clinic, Inc., a professional counsel-
ing and mental health center. It Is not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment ser-
vices.


Dear Counselor,
I amra 29 year old woman who
works for a good sized local com-
pany In their bookkeeping depart-
ment. I do my job and then go
home to-a lonely apartment. When
I'm not working, I sit home, eat
and watch t.v. I have no friends,
no love interests, no nothing.
Recently, when complaining
about.my situation, a co-worker
told me to stop complaining, grow
up and get a life I have never
been so insulted! But, the bore-
doi .is eating me alive. What
should, I do?,
Signed. "
Is there life outside of "Friends",
"Home Improvement", and "Grace
Under Fire"?
Dear "Is there life":
Although I do applaud your
taste in t.v. shows, I am con-
cerned with the. fact that you say
you have no friends. Why is this?
Is isolating yourself ,characteris-
tic, long term behavior or some-
thing you have found yourself
doing recently? Is there depres-
sion involved? Has something.
happened recently that influenced
you to withdraw from other peo-
ple? Some counseling may be in
order to determine some solid
answers to these questions. In the


meantime, alternative activities '
may be a partial solution. Studies
show that people who are actively.
involved in volunteer work find life
more satisfying. By involving
yourself in local community con-
cerns, you are thereby. giving
something back to those around
you. Community involvement can
also be a vehicle to meet other
people and, perhaps, develop
some, meaningful relationships.
Different options can include join-
ing a local church, or involving
yourself with a group that
revolves around' common inter-
ests such as a hobby or activity..
There is a full world of interest,
excitement, and happiness that
awaits youl Have'fun!
Sincerely,
M. Cathy Stringer, M.S.
Outreach Counselor

Senator Pat Thomas Ranked

"Among Top Ten In Florida


Senator Pat Thomas (D-
Quincy) was among the top ten
senators In the annual Associated
Industries of Florida ranking on
pro-business votes during the re-
cently completed regular session
of the Florida Legislature.
Associated Industries of Flori-

cast by senators that had the
greatest impact on the business
community. The business group's
ratings differ from other vote
studies In that they are not based
solely on votes cast in the Senate
Chamber. Votes taken in commit-
tees and on key amendments to
bills were also factored into the
overall score.
"I am pleased to remain
ranked among the most pro-
business senators In Florida,"
said Senator Thomas. "It is im-

FOR OUR


CHILDREN'S FUTURE
by
Loretta Costin


The Class of 1956: Born to Serve
The recent reunion of the Port St. Joe High School Class of
1956 serves as an excellent reminder of how important it is
to teach our children the value of community service. "Born
to Serve", the motto of this graduating class, expresses the
commitment this group made some forty years ago to help
others and to give to their communities.
This willingness and desire to work for the good of neigh-
bors and friends is one that we can begin to instill in our
children at an early age. One method parents and teachers
can use is to set aside time with children ;o write on 3"x5"
cards one thing that they are willing to do to help a neigh-
bor, friend, or family member. These "pledge cards" can be
an important first step to a lifetime of community service.
Older children can continue this commitment through
scouting, church, and other volunteer or civic activities.
Encouraging a desire to help others and to give to their
communities will help prepare our children to be good and
caring citizens in the future.

A Salute





To Fathers


-By: Maik W. Merrill, President
of Florida Family Council
For, all you dads out there
who love, encourage and spend
time with your kids,, let me say
thanks.as Father's Day soon ap-
proaches., In fact, the entire com-
munity owes. you a debt of grati-
tude. Not only because you make
the lives of your children more
fulfilling, but also because what
you do as a father does more for
Florida and your community than
anything you might do at work.
By loving your children and being
involved in their lives, you serve
as. the ultimate department of
health, education and welfare.
For those of you who are not fa-
thers but know one-listen up.
You may want to pat them on the
back after you hear all they have
been doing.
Did you know that as an ef-
fective father you are the best
hope for fighting crime? In our
state and nation, most violent
criminals are males who grew up
without fathers. Including 60 per-
cent of rapists, 72 percent of ado-
lescent murderers, and 70 per-
cent of the long-term prison pop-
ulation. In fact, the Journal of Re-
search and Crime and
Delinquency says that the best
predictor of violent crime in a
neighborhood is the proportion of
households without fathers. Near-
ly 9 out of 10 Juvenile delinquents
in Florida come from homes
where the father is absent.
Did you know that by being
there for your kids you fight pov-
erty better than any government
program ever could? Research in-
dicates that children In single-
parent families are far more likely
to be poor. Homes with single
mothers make up the largest pro-
portion of the population on wel-
fare rolls in the country today.
DId you know that by being
involved in the life of your daugh-
ter, you are our best hope for
fighting teen pregnancy? Studies
demonstrate that daughters in
single parent homes are 164 per-
cent more likely to have a baby
out-of-wedlock than children who
grow up in two-parent families,
and Ill percent more likely to

have children as teenagers.
Did you know that you do a
tremendous amount for eduia-
tion in this country? A, study of
17,000 children living apart from
their biological fathers found that
they were 40 percent more likely
to repeat a grade in school and
70 percent more likely to be ex-
pelled, than children living with
both parents.
Dads, you may be short on
time, energy and patience, -but
hang in there. You are making a
tremendous difference. By invest-
ing time in your kids, ,you are
creating something of lasting val-
ue. Someone who understood
that was Theodore Roosevelt,
United States PreSident, Rough-
rider, author and Nobel Prize win-
ner. He once wrote a letter to his
son Kermit. In it, he advised his
son to remember him first and
foremost as his father, not as.
someone distant who had accom-'
plished great things. It was anrr
easy request for Kermit to honor,'
because TR always made time for
his children. Joan Paterson Kerr,
in her recent book, A Bully Fa-
ther: Theodore Roosevelt's Letters
to His Children, writes "Theodore
Roosevelt, twenty-sixth president
of the United States and father of
six, was the quintessential family
man. In letter after letter that he
wrote to his family and friends,
he spoke of the pride, the love
and the joy that he derived from
his family. No matter that he had
achieved the highest position in
the land, his wife and children
came first."
Thanks to each and every
committed Dad. Your contribu-
tion to our state and nation will
not be forgotten
