Jack Rudloe was the main
speaker at the Thursday meeting
of the St. Joe Bay Committee anc
he presented a surprising ovei-
view of the Bay and its future ex
Distance.
Rudloe, a marine biologist
and.president of Gulf Specimen
Laboratory in Panacea, mildly
shocked everyone by stating. 'The
confrontatonal business with
regulators and the Bay use advo-
cates is not right! There ought to
be a working relationship be-
tween the two factions."

The marine biologist said the
Bay was vibrant and alive with
I many sea creatures despite nay-
sayers predicting its doom if it
isn't the target of severe preserva-
tion activities.
'The Bay Is a treasure," Rud-
loe said. "It needs protecting, but
we should use common sense in
;our efforts at protection. You
can't stop development, nor
should you try." he continued.
Rudloe cited the recent
plague of the red tide which start-
ed in the Tampa area and spread
to Apalachicola and St. Joe bays.
"Nobody knows what causes it,'.
but its deadly to sea animals.
How do you stop it?" he asked. "Is
It a sign to humans? Both sea an-
imals and humans have a diges-
tive system. They both have a
mouth, a gut and expell wastes in
a common manner. Are humans
next on the list for destruction by
this organism?" he queried.
PROMOTES SENSIBLE USE
Sensible use of the Bay and
its waters seemed to be the theme
Rudloe was promoting.
The speaker advocated con-:
stant examination of the Bay for
Deterioration by "people who use
it and get out in the waters and

Gulf Ambulance
Damaged In Wreck
A Gulf County ambulance,
transporting a patient to Gulf
Pines hospital Monday was in-
volved in an accident. No Injuries
were reported, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
SAccording to the FHP report,
the accident occurred in the St.
Joe Beach area, along Highway
98. A 1998 Ford van, belonging to
Thomas Walsh, was parked in a
driveway, with the parking brake
improperly set. The transmission
of the vehicle slipped out of
"park" and rolled backward into
the highway in the path of the ap-
proaching ambulance.
The ambulance, driven by
Fred Downs of White City, struck
the right rear of the van, inflicting
approximately $4,000 damage to
both the van and to the ambu-
lance.

on with the small animals. For in-
stance, the starfish have seemed
to disappear. Is that an omen of
something happening or have
they simply migrated to a differ-
ent location?" He said the Bay
can't be adequately monitored by
scientists who sit in their air-
conditioned offices and operate
their computers.
"It has to be the fishermen
who are in the Bay every day who


first sounds the alarm to minute
changes," the speaker declared.
"What can we do, of a positive
nature, for the Bay?" Rudloe
asked. He then made three sug-
gestions he classified as Impor-
tant If we are to maintain the Bay
in its present productive condi-
tion.
"First, we need to create liv-
ing reefs in the Bay waters." the
speaker suggested.
"Next. we need to use a mix-


ture of common sense and regu-
lations."
"Last, we need more and con-
stant 'hands on' research. Listen
to the 'Raffields'. people who are
in the Bay daily."

Broached

Police Chief, Asst.
Street Supt. Tell
:Of Retirement Plans
SDuring Tuesday evening's
regularly scheduled city commis-
sion meeting Washington jm-
provement Group (WIG) Executive
Director. Mark McGruder ad-
dressed the board concerning
future plans for the Washington
Recreation site. .
McGruder reiterated WIG's
long term goals to create a com-
munity center at the site's loca-
tion. but pointed out several
shortfalls at the gym site in need
of attention. He particularly
Addressed plumbing needs, light-
ing updates, electrical problems,
windows, exterior work. heating
and cooling, and handicap acces-
sibility as items WIG would like to
see the city commit to refurbish.
Mayor Frank Pate agreed with
McGruder that the improvements
needed to be made; but stated the
second meeting of a new budget
year wasn't the best timing since
monetary plans had been set for
the year.
Members of the WIG group
and McGruder approached the
board at their first meeting of the
month (November 5) reporting on
their progress to date and the
long term goals, including the
development and construction of
a "fullservice" community center
at the lty's" Wash rigtSrn Recre-a
tion site.
McGruder told the board dur-
ing the meeting that WIG wanted
to work out a long term agree-
ment with the city to lease or pur-
chase the property for develop-
ment of the community center.
During Tuesday's meeting, he
told the board that he thought it
was proper for the city to take
care of current building needs
anid not pass on taxpayers'
responsibilities to a private foun-
dation (WIG) when talking about
future acquisition of the building.
The city does have included in
its current budget year plans to
re-roof the gym, and the board
noted that money was budgeted
to take care:,of routine mainte-
nance items. Commissioner
Johnny Linton told the board that
several complaints concerning
some of the building problems
had been made to the commission
in the past
'During discussion, Commis-
sioner Charles Tharpe said that
he felt the board wouldn't have a
problem working out an acquisi-
tion agreement with WIG, provid-
ed that it was understood if things
fall through the property would
return to the city.
The Washington Improvement
Group plans to address the board
again before the first of the year
with a formal proposal to acquire
the Washington site through a
lease or purchase agreement.
Carl0O. "Bucky" Richter,
Police Chief
Port St Joe Chief of Police
Carl O. "Bucky" Richter presented
the board with a letter announc-
ing his intent to retire effective
January 2, 1997.
Richter, who has served as
police chief for the past nine
years, stated in his letter that he
has strived to provide the city
with a professional, fair, commu-
nity minded police force that the
city could be proud of.
He also expressed his grati-
tude to every citizen for allowing
him the honor of serving as their
police chief.
Mayor Pate commended
Richter for a job well done, stating
that he would even like to see him
reconsider his retirement plans.
Roosevelt Beard,
Asst. Superintendent
Assistant Superintendent
Roosevelt Beard. also notified the
board of his intentions to retire
effective January 1, 1997.

Activity

THE FIRST OF THE year is going to be a busy time around
Port St. Joe; or, more correctly, after the first of the year promis-
es to be an active period. The entire first quarter of next year has
the promise of several projects getting started around our com-
munity, which will drastically change the face of it.
First, the revitalization of Reid Avenue will get started
around the middle to the latter part of January. The street lights
will be changed, the street will be plowed up and paved anew.
The sidewalks will be replaced and a new facade given the.entire
reet, from parking to pedestrian, walkways, making the street
.re attractive as well as safer for pedestrians and,vehicular
traffic alike.
SECOND, THE CONSTRUCTION of Port St. Joe's new mari-
na is scheduled to.get underway. again, in January.
The old Hess Oil. Company property will be transformed into
a full marina, complete with wet and dry storage for boats and a
large protected harbor for them to embark and tie up in. This is
something we know Port St. Joe has lusted after for at least 40
years. 'An attempt was made to create a marina some 30 years
ago anidit almost made it to fruition. This time around, it is gq-
ing to come to pass.
A parcel will be set aside to develop into shops, boating sup-
plies, fishing supplies and the center piece of it all-a fine res-
taurant with a bay-front view.
S The 'talking' plans are all first class. The drawn plans are all
first class. We have faith that we will end up with a first class in-
stallation.
PRIVATE BUSINESSES ARE planning for a burst forward in
the new year. Several new ones are going to open up, others are
planning a move and even others are planning an expansion.
Things are looking up for Port St. Joe and downtown.
Of course, this is the type atmosphere revitalization of down-
town is seeking to create. After nearly 10 years of trying to get it
off the ground, it is finally happening. Nobody thought the ex-
pansion and movement along Reid Avenue would begin so soon.
All of those planning the change looked for it to begin soon after-
ward, but, it's beginning to come to realization even, before the
revitalization is accomplished.
But, isn't such activity, itself, revitalization?


Nothing Foolproof

NOTHING IS FOOLPROOF. Some citizens In' Wewahltchka
are having complaints about their ambulance service being slow
to respond on occasion not all the time. you understand. Any-
one needing an ambulance expects it to respond immediately to.
their needs; that's understandable. But the reality of the situa-
tion is that things happen to delay an ambulance, a fire truck, a
police cruiser, just as it does anything else. There's built-in de-
lays to make anything late, no matter how conscientious the op-
erators are and in the case of a volunteer ambulance service,
they're pretty conscientious.
The citizens with the complaints should realize that the de-
lays are to be expected at times and are not the fault of the oper-
ators. It's the nature of volunteer services or professional ser-
vices, for that' matter :-- that they must be concerned- for the
plight of their fellow citizens or they would not be a member of
the service in the first place.
THERE'S A DIsrINiIl, PLUS with the volunteer service. It is
manned by your friends and neighbors who have your personal
well-being uppermost in their thoughts. Oftentimes this works
in your favor even more than a paid service does. You don't
need to remind a volunteer service to handle you carefully. You
see it isn't Just an occupation with them, It is an act of love and
caring for their friends which prompts them to give you the best
of service .,
When : call goes out for ambulance needs, there is a group
dedicated to answering that call immediately if they possibly
can. There's no lolly-gagging around like one might sometimes
experience from a hardened professional service.
OUR WIFE, THREE of our daughters, two sons-in-law all
served as volunteers before the Port St. Joe service went profes-
Ssional. We know the volunteer mind-set from experience. When
it was their night to be on call, they slept in their clothes Just so:
they would be ready to respond immediately.
SWe don't hardly see that kind of dedication anymore.
.So, if you exerience delays in response, try to find out why
before you make charges. Just like the accident which prompted
your call; any delays will probably be beyond the volunteer's
control. ':

I first "met" Terry Labonte in

'Course, I don't believe it was con-

the multi-colored Chevrolet Luditi-

four year hiatus for World War II,
my father spent his entire adult

those big. trailer-truck outfits.
He'd patted that .concrete for a

enough diesel smoke to choke a

abiding love and kinship for every
trucker that ever mounted up.
Never mind the much publi-

Everything Of Importance Must Have A Special Day


EVERYTHING OF impor-
tance has to have a special "day".
marking the particular emphasis
we wish placed on any given ac-
tivity or stress any special hap-
pening of importance we might
wish to call special attention to.
There's "cabbage day". "Bas-
tille Day", 'grandparent's day",
"father's day", "Labor Day". "apple
"day", "dill pickle day" . Almost
any kind of day one could desire
or hope to have.
Sometime I think we are go-
ing to run out of excuses to have
a special "day" or we're going to
run out of days to designate spe-
cial "days" on. But, neither has
happened, yet. A special "day" is
designated at the drop of a hat.
The designation of a special "day"
for any particular purpose has al-
most lost its uniqueness by virtue
of the fact there are so many spe-
cial "days".
A "day" for this and a "day"
for that, There seems to be no
end to creating another reason to
observe a special "day" for.


i ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


BUT, WE HAVE HAD another
special "day" suggested which is
not yet observed. Oh, yesl Anoth-
er day to mark on our calendar.
observe. commemorate and cele-
brate. It's a "day" I believe you
can Join with us in getting enthu-
siastic about. This "day" has riot
been mentioned, nor thought of
before. It is one of a kind.
I'm going to reveal this sug-
gested "day" right here and now.
See what you think of it.
"Bay Day."
Doesn't that have a poetic
ring to it? Doesn't it have a famil-
iar, though one-of-a-kind, as well
as a rhyming sound to it?


It was suggested at the last
St. Joe Bay Committee meeting
we had, as a vehicle to spur Inter-
est in protecting [not necessarily,
merely preserving] our pristine
bay for future generations to: ,
come. The name caught on imme- i
diatelyl

WE WON'T MAKE the same
mistakes Apalachicola seems to,
have made with their Seafood
Festival. A good number of the
old-timers of Apalachicola [and
more: than a sprinkling of the
young-timers, also] feel their, Sea-
food Festival has degenerated ,'
Into an excuse to just have a


crafts festival. They feel the Sea-
food Festival has lost any kinship
it formerly had to presenting the
seafood story.
And, that's a shame.
It seems as if there wasn't the
first reference to seafood, the spe-
cial tools it requires to harvest or
process, or the special people in-
volved In the entire seafood oper-
ation.

MAYBE WE CAN learn from
Apalachicola's apparent degener-
ation from the unique activity
which gave birth to their special
day on the first Saturday in No-
vember for the past 30-plus
years. ,
Apalachtcola's festival was a
success, don't read 'me as saying
it wasn't. If you want to have a
day and draw. hordes of people,
entertain them 'royally, provide an
outlet. for hundreds of craft-
makers and food pavilions to
make lots of money, they have a
successful formula in the.Seafood


Festival.
If, however, the desire is to
present the story of St. Joe bay,
its past history and its unique
pristine beauty today, and im-
press upon people our desire to
keep it that way, you're going to
have to offer something in addi-
tion to several different kinds of
crafts even more than differ-
ent kinds of foods.

JUST BATTING the subject
around, the LOCAL people
present at the Bay Committee
meeting, came up with the idea of
telling the bay story and. our de-
sire to keep it beautiful and pro-
ductive.
For instance, did you know
That our bay is the least polluted
bay for over 100 miles in either
direction? It is. The bay is so iris-
tine that the head of the marine
studies of the University of South
Alabama at Dauphin Island
brings his students here to let
them study in an environment
such as a bay should be..


That fact makes quite a state-
ment. It says that we have done a
good Job in protecting our bay, in
spite of ourselves.,
We haven't built a fence
around its perimeters and more
or less put up a sign which says,
"Hands Om"
We have continued to use our
bay In a responsible manner and
maintained its integrity all the
while.
Even Jack Rudloe, who In his
younger days, advocated such a
"Hands Off" approach. looks at it
with a more adult attitude. He is
now saying, "Go ahead and utilize
the bay"and all it offers, all the
while keeping an eye out for tell-
tale signs of overuse, so we can
back off if we have to."
Even. a -flaming liberal such
as Rudloe has been ip years past
recognizes the folly of fence build-
ing.
SThat's what the special day
will do, keep the bay in plain view
while we are utilizing it.
Doesn't that make sense?

System Has Pressure Boosted With Addition of New Tank System


County Commissioner Michael Ham- trator Don Butler, left, Hammond, Philip Ga-
mond pushes the button, starting newly skin of Southeastern Mechanical, Gerald
installed pumps.at the Beaches Water Sys- :Shearer,: Water Superintendent and David
tem. Looking on are: County Chief Adminis-. Kennedy with Preble Rish, engineers.


The Beaches Water System
received an extra surge of pres-
sure Tuesday afternoon as county
officials turned on pumps to a
new upgraded water system. The
system includes a pressure tank,
designed to both store water and
increase pressure on the distribu-
tion lines.
From. the time the system
was first built it has been plagued
with low water pressure from the.
gravity flow from its junction with
the Port St. Joe system, its
source of treated water. The
Beaches system had no elevated
storage 'tank to alleviate the prob-
lem.
County Commissioner Mi-
chael Hammond officially turned
on the pumps which activated the
rtew addition Tuesday at 1:00
p.m.
The new facilities will boost
the, system's pressure from the
current, 35 pounds of pressure up
to 50 pounds.
The holding tank is large


enough to hold two days worth of
water for the beaches at normal
use rate. It is expected to boost
pressure enough to give a fire-


fighting flow sufficient to lower
the insurance ratings which will
result in lower fire insurance
costs in the beach area.

offering to build sidewalks along
Avenue A from the railroad tracks
to Highway 98 'and requesting

During discussion, Benny
Roberts. (Parks: and Recreation)
and Charles Gathers (Recreation)
also pointed out several other
sidewalk areas in need of repair
around city recreational facilities.
The board decided to further look
into the sidewalk needs.

He wasn't even out of the car
'before the microphone was in his
face. ". .. I finally did it ."
His voice, just .for a second,
cracked -with emotion. I thought
of my Dad. It wasn't the $1.5 mil-
lion for winning :the, champion-'
ship. It wasn't the fame, the key
chains and the souvenir pro-
grams. It was driving, being be-
hind that wheel, logging those
miles .. .. and being darn good
at it! It was the only way they
both knew to make a living. .
I hope you understand this
story today. I'm not trying to im- ,
press anyone with a "name-'guy.
He's certainly never going to read
these lines. He's too busy prepar-
ing for that big. year-ending
awards banquet in that famous
hotel up in New York City.
I wrote this story simply be-
cause Terry Labonte is a good guy
..... and helwon ..... and we
get'so precious few opportunities
in the 90's to write about the
good guy winning .. ....

Hello Gulf County!
I'm sorry about the past. two weeks, but, we just let the deadlines
creep up on us. I do appreciate all of you that noticed our absence.
If you have not gotten your order in for your New Roof, you will
probably have to wait until after the New Year. We have really got-
ten a lot of business and during this time of giving thanks, we are
very thankful to you; our neighbors.
I have had people ask how they can tell if they need a new roof. If
you see missing or broken shingles or if the shingles are turning up-:
on the edges and bare spots are visible, chances are you probably
are due for a new roof. The old asphalt shingles only had a life
span of about 10 ye'ats; The newer, lighter fiberglass shingles are
Swarrantied for 20 to 25 years. In our clirmite here In Florfda, you
can really expect about 15 to 20 years of ivear. You need plenty of
ventilation in your roof area to extend the life of your shingles. If
you would like a consultation or an estimate, give us a call and we
will set up an appointment that is convenient for you. Remember
we take Mastercard, Visa and Discover cards so you can spread the
payments out. .
Ifyou see Whitney tell her Happy Birthday. She is going to be the
big one o (10) on Thursday. She is on the cusp of womanhood to
hear her tell it. The excitement never ends around here. Donna is
about to venture out on her first flight next week. I, of course, have
been tellingher all of my horror stories about flying to get her pre-
pared for the worst. Please pray for her and that pilot that is in
charge of getting her to Pittsburgh.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. You can eat all you want to,
and some you don't want, and not feel guilty. I love to have all of
my family around and feel the excitement of the children talking,
about Christmas. Giving thanks is such a natural thing for me,
because I am truly blessed. I still haven't heard from anybody
about a good recipe for dressing. I know there are a lot of good
cooks here in Gulf County but they are not sharing tleir recipes.
Everyone have a great week and try to get some work done this
week. Donna will be gone, but I'll be here if you need anything. We
are planning to take a long weekend next weekend for
Thanksgiving. Keep in touch. Please go to church somewhere this
Sunday.

Sharks Fail To Advance To


Playoffs With 21-20 District Loss


StL Joe's hopes of continuing
their football season into the
Class 3A state play-offs came to
an end Friday night with a 20-21
district loss to Florida High.
Jefferson County clinched the
District 2-3A title a few weeks ago
when they squeaked past the
Sharks 23-20. SL Joe and Florida
High entered Friday night's game
tied in district play (2-1) for sec-
ond place in the district.
St. Joe drove the ball deep
into Florida High territory on each
of their first two possessions (24
yard line and 19 yard line), but
failed to take advantage of either
scoring threat. Florida i igh',-on -
the other hand. needed Just three
plays to score on their first pos-
session, an 85 yard drive, to take
a 7-0 lead early In the first quar-
ter.
The baby Noles took advan-
tage of several big plays to make
the score 14-0 early in the second
quarter. then made it 21-0 with
2:47 remaining In the half, off a
48 yard touchdown run and point
after try.
Brian Jenkins connected with
quarterback James Daniels on a
halfback pass for a nine yard
touchdown with :30 remaining in
the half to make the score 21-7 at
the midway mark.
Tyson Pittman provided most
of the offensive punch on the
Sharks' drive gaining 22 yards on
three carries during the 57 yard
drive.
Shark' cornerback, Jim
Faison's interception at the Shark
21.yard line midway through the
third quarter set up the next
score. Pittman had runs of 13 and
seven yards and Jenkins added
eight more yards but'a holding
penalty stalled the drive at the


Florida High 43 yard line with
fourth down and two yards to go.
Apparently lined up for a
Brian Jenkins' punt. Shark center
Kyle Adkison snapped the ball-
directly to Pltmnan on a fake punt
attempt: Pittman raced 57 yards
for a touchdown to bring the
Sharks within a touchdown and
extra point conversion of tying the
game (21-14) with 3:14 remaining
in the third quarter.
The Sharks' defensive unit
took control at that point allowing
the Seminoles just 20 yards of
total oTfense throughout the
remainder of the game and mark-
ing-five plays-for minus yardhag.--
Shark quarterback Jarred
Patterson connected with tight
end Doyle Crosby for a 38 yard
scoring pass with 6:27 remaining
in the third quarter to bring the
Sharks within one point of tying
the game at 21-20.
The Sharks elected to go for
two points on the point after,
snapping the ball directly to kick-
e'r Brian Jenkins. He rolled out
looking for Pittnan in the end
zone, but fumbled the ball out of
bounds while trying to elude
Florida High's defensive players.

Early Detection


Of Oral Cancer


One of the -hazards that
everyone has to be on the
alert for is any sign of suspi-
cious growths that could'mean
oral cancer. This is another.
reason why your dentist takes
such care in examining your
mouth when. you go for a
checkup. Oral cancer in its
early stages can usually be
treated successfully:
Among the early signs is a
red sore on the lips, gums or
inside the mouth that doesn't
heal in two or three weeks.
Another is a profusion of white
scaly patches inside the mouth
or on the lips: Any' swelling or
lumps in the mouth or on. the
neck, lip or tongue should also
be viewed suspiciously. Other


symptoms are numbness or.
pain inthe mouth, or bleeding
without any apparent cause.
Many of these conditions
won't cause any pain at first,

Great Pumpkin Is Great Surprise of 1996 Crop Of Mamminoth Veggies


Jim Stephens, a University of
Florida vegetable crops specialist,
is the keeper of the state's official
list of biggest vegetables, and the
only one who' can proclaim a,
Florida veggie a champion.
So when Bradenton resident
Tim Canniff called up to get
Stephens' seal of approval to
claim his pumpkin as Florida's
biggest, Stephens was expecting
the record to creep up only a little
past the state's previous pumpkin
record of 242 pounds. After all,
, with Florida's heat and pests,
pumpkin-growing conditions are
not ideal.
When Canniff told Stephens
how much his pampered pump-
kin weighed, Stephens got one of
the shocks of his agricultural life.
This pumpkin, the greatest
pumpkin of them all, weighed in
at a whopping 459 pounds.
"Imagine that growing in
somebody's back yard," .said
Stephens, a professor in UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. "It's enough to scare
you to death."
Canniff says although they
were not afraid of his gargantuan.

Tyndall FCU

Goes On

Home Page

Network
Tyndall Federal Credit Union
is again one of the first financial
institutions in this area to em-
brace technology and anticipate
member's needs with the Intro-
duction of a home page on the
world wide web. Tyndall Federal's
home page goes live on the Inter-
net on Friday, November 1. The
home page. located at
www.tyndallfcu.org was devel-
oped in-house and features:
Branch and' ATM locations,
information on savings, checking,
loans, auto leasing, GENIE, an
audio response system. Tele-
phone Lending Center (11C). the
TFCU mission and values state-
ments and history, departmental
directory, and more.
Members can access Informa-
tion, in detail, on just about any-
thing they need to know about
the Credit Union and what it of-
fers. There's even a loan and
S liortgage wizard that allows ytdu
tb calculate mortgage and loan
payments based on the informa-
tion you input. In. the future, the
web site will offer enhanced capa-
bilities like on-line check ordering
and membership applications.
Tyndall Federal has histori-
cally offered products and servic-
es that are on the leading edge of
technology because TFCU mem-
bers are enthusiastic users of
convenience technology. The first
local' audio response system, that
allowed account and loan infor-
mation access and transfer capa-
billties, was offered at Tyndall
Federal as early as 1983. This
system presently processes over
83,000 calls and 222,000 trans-
actions per month. The Tele-
phone Lending Center. an auto-
mated telephone lending system..
was introduced in 1994. TLC re-.
ceives 3,200.calls a month with
10% of those completing a loan
application. TynLink Home Bank-
Ing. a -PC based system for ac-
count and loan information ac-
cess and bill paying, was
introduced October I of this year
with over 200 applications re-
ceived to date. The home page is
just another way the Credit Un-

was nuts." Canniff constructed a
huge windbreak to "protect" his
pumpkin and said the structure
was an, eyesore. The vegetable
yearned for more space and even
grew out of its pumpkin patch
and into a neighbor's yard. In
fact, Canniff said he could literal-
ly watch it grow.
"Every day you could see a
noticeable difference," Canniff
said of the pumpkin's roughly 9-
pound-per-day weight gain. "At
two weeks, it was 50 pounds, at
one mbnth it was 200 pounds, at
two months it was 459 pounds."
When it stopped growing, t
was 3 feet tall and 10 feet around
and the new state champion. Had
the great pumpkin lasted till
Halloween it might, indeed, have:


scared its share of trick or
treaters. But giant veggies give
new meaning to the phrase-more
"to the victor go the spoils,"
Stephens said. They begin to rot
quickly and Canniffs pumpkin
had to be harvested, so he donat-
ed it to Meals on Wheels. No word
on whether folks in his communi-,
ty are still eating pumpkin pie.
Stephens might easily have
suspected the novice gardener' of
telling a fish tale. After all,
Canniffs a commercial fisherman.
by trade and only decided to try,
his hand at gardening after the
net ban threw some extra time his
way.-
But Stephens requires docu-
mentation by an extension agent


who carefully examines the cham-
.pion veggies to be sure they have
not been injected with water or
lead weights or anything else that
would make them heavier.
Stephens has been keeping
the list of the state's biggest veg-
gies since 1989, and says that
usually when records are broken
it Is by small Increments, mere
pounds or even ounces, and usu-
ally the growers are veterans who
have been trying for years to set a
record. So surprised was he by
the size of Canniff's pumpkin that
he expects its record to stand for
some time.
Canniff, however, is all set to
try again. He's offering seeds from
,his Atlantic -Giant pumpkin to
anyone who would like to try to

Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg, on
November 1-3, with more than
415 other family physicians and
medical professionals.
The specialty of family prac-

1969. when the American Board
of Medical Specialties and the
Council on Medical Education of'
the American Medical Association
approved a primary certifying
board in the specialty. -


Family practice is the medical
specialty which provides continu-

care for the individual and family..
It is the specialty in breath which
integrates the biological, clinical,
and behavioral sciences. The
scope of family practice encom-
passes all ages, both sexes, each
organ system,, and every disease
entity. The specialty of family
practice is the result of the
evolved and enhanced expression
of general medical practice and is
uniquely defined within the fami-

Stephens says planting seeds
from a champion is the best place
to start in the quest for a mam-
moth vegetable.
But, he says, the quest is
really at odds with the gardening
advice he has dispensed for 30
years. "What I teach in gardening
is that a gardener should not
allow vegetables to grow excep-
tionally large," Stephens said.


"For the best eating, you snoula

Oliver Taylor Gives Rotarians A Bit of Florida History


Oliver Taylor, who regularly
has a religious column in The
Star, presented a very interesting
program to Rotary on Florida his-
tory and how early wars affected
the state last Thursday.
Taylor started out with what
has been mistakenly called "The
Seminole Indian wars". "In reali-
ty," he said, '"hey should have
been identified as the Creek Indi-
an wars."
Taylor said the area was set-
tled by about 4,000 Creek Indi-
ans and Indians from other tribes
who instigated the wars. He told
the story of the "massacre" just
outside of Bushnell which took
place in 1835, when a troop of
soldiers were on a march from
Tampa and were ambushed by
the Indians. Only the three Indi-
an guides survived.
Then another interesting bit
of history took place during the
War Between the States.
Florida's Governor at the time
was John Milton,' who was a
dyed-in-the-wool southerner. The
poor farmers in north Florida
identified the war as "the rich
man's war." Since they weren't af-
fluent enough to own slaves, they
shunned duty in the southern
army. Whenr the north won the
war, Governor Milton went home
and shot himself rather than live
under the Yankees.
Florida grew during the Civil
SWar, because other poor farmers
moved to. the state to find sympa-
thy for their-reluctance to join the
army.
Another spurt of growth hap-
pened with the election of Ruther-
ford B. Hayes in 1876. It was un-
der Hayes administration that the
union army was called back


north from .its occupation of the
south.
Florida played an important
part in the election of Hayes. Flor-,
ida and Louisiana each had three
electoral votes. Both states cast


their votes for Hayes and he was
the victor by a single electoral
vote, two days before he was to'be
inaugurated. The electoral college
was having a problem naming a
final winner until the final votes


.were counted.
The state's population has
grown immediately following each
war, Taylor declared.

">.^ In the 24th Psalm the
question is asked of who
shall ascend the hill of
the Lord. The answer is
Oliver F. Taylor found in verse four where
Visitation Minister, First we find, "He who has
United Methodist church clean hands and a pure
heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is
false, and does not swear deceitfully."
Christ expects his followers to fit this
description. Christians are challenged many
times to get their hands dirty, or to swear deceit-
fully. Sometimes we say we are only human, or
we want to blame irresponsible action on others.'
IMy Sunday School teacher when I was eight
used to emphasize clean hands and a pure
heart. It's still a goal for Christians in today's
world.

Instance, suppose your child'
complains of being left out of a
game at recess. You might say, "It
sounds like your feelings were
hurtwhen the other kids didn'tlet
you play." Then just listen and be

Shark Talk
Bu: Eric Wisdahl


The Shark football team
ended the season on Friday night.
They came back from a 21-0 score
and had the chance to win as' they
went for a two-point conversion
with the score 21-20 and just over
five minutes in the game.
However, it was not meant to be,.
The final score was 21-20. The
team's final record was 4-6. They
missed the playoffs by only a
game. A salute to a well played
season.
A round of applause to the
boys' cross country team. The
Purple Pack placed second in
Saturday's meet and will be mov-
ing on to Jacksonville this week-
end for the state meet. There were
seven teams competing, and only
Pensacola Catholic, the first
ranked team, could pull in:front of
the Sharks. The Purple Pack beat,
South Jacksonville Episcopal,
Keystone Heights, Florida high,
and Crescent City.
No one could catch District
1-3A champion Gabe Clark as
he sailed toward the three mile
mark -at just 16:04. Great job,
Gabe. Everyone should make the
trip over to Florida Community
College in Jacksonville this
Saturday to support the number'
two ranked Sharks as they run
home' thestate title.
Hats off to the girls' cross
country team for their third
place finish in Saturday's meet.
LaTrika Quinn, Gena Johnson.
Stephanie Maxwell, Jessica Hill,
Emily Thompson, and Lacey
Johnson were all a part of this
year's great team.
They also need our support in
Jacksonville this Saturday, since


F12iyrr FLIT!,


this is the first time in Lady
Sharks' cross country history that
the girls' team has made it to the
state meet. So, come on down and
support both cross county teams
and be a part of the champi-
onship.
I'd like to draw your attention
to the Lady Sharks basketball
team. The tip-off of the season is
this coming Monday in Freeport at
5:00 p.m., E.S.T. Let's get some
support out for this hard working
team.
Congratulations are in order
to Tracy Fitzgerald for her "Voice
of Democracy" speech. She won
the district competition and is

job, Tracy.
Congratulations also to
