Closer To Having


Industrial Park

Agrees to Construct Building at the
Intersection of Highways 71 and 381


FCP Officials Advise

Mayo Of Concerns .
Want to Have as Little Adverse Effect as Possible on
Employees and Community in Pending Shutdown
Mayor Frank Pate reported to The Star that he had
been in touch with officials of Florida Coast Paper, L.L.C.
on several occasions regarding the future operation of the
mill. Pate said he was advised that, ". their main con-
cern at this time is the future of all mill employees and the
impact of the mill operation on the community. The' ex-
pressed appreciation and praise for the outstanding job
performance of the employees." The Mayor was further ad-
vised that the sole reason for the uncertainty of the next
few weeks is caused by the price and demand [or lack
thereof] for paper in the national and world markets.
Pate: also stated that he has hopes of meeting with
some of the officials within the next two weeks to see if he
can get a better feeling for when the mill might resume op-
erations. At the present time. It is anticipated that the mill
will be closing its last paper machine to production in early
April.
Pate remarked at the end of is statement. "The closing
will be tough on all of us, but we will survive this and come
out of it a stronger community, one way or another."



Red Cross Sets Up Temporary

Office to Distribute Information


The American Red Cross will
be sponsoring disaster prepared-
ness education and information
workshops throughout 'an 11'
County area in North Florida over
the next several weeks according
to Janet Egberg, Community
Disaster Education coordinator
with the Capital Area Chapter.
Temporary offices are cur-
rently set up at the intersection of
Highway 71 and Reid Avenue
(next to City Hall) in Port St. Joe
and will remain open through
Sunday, March 16 to provide dis-
aster information to area resi-
dents. Office hours are from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m.
Janet said the program was
being coordinated prior to the
start of hurricane season, June
1st, to provide information for
everything from evacuation plans
and procedures to home safety
precautions.
She said reaching senior citi-
zens was the target of the current
drive, but she emphasized that
everyone was welcome to come by
with questions and to get pam-
phlets on any of a host of disas-
.ter-related subjects.
Volunteers Needed
Janet encouraged anyone
who might be interested in Joining
the local chapter of the Red Cross
as a volunteer to come by and
sigh up. She said that Gulf


County is part of the Central
Panhandle Chapter and there is a
need for more volunteers locally.


Drainage
Work progressed on the Reid Avenue revitali-
zation project this week, with installation of the
storm drainage system being placed.
In the larger photo, at left, the pipe is being
laid parallel with the edge of the sidewalk. In
the photo at top, a continuous inlet is installed
for the entire length of the collection pipe. This
collection method has been designed to remove
water from the street faster than the old meth-
od.,
The system will be installed for the entire
length of Reid Avenue, on both sides of the
street.



Young Man Drowns In


Gulf County came one step
closer to having a 20,000 square
fobt industrial park following
action taken by the county com-
missioners during Tuesday's reg-
ular board meeting.
During the board's last regu-
lar meeting.they discussed the
possibility of losing $536,750 of
EDA grant funds for the construc-
tion of the Industrial park If
action wasn't taken soon on the
project.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
suggested the board build a spec
building, stealing a line from the
movie, "Field of Dreams", saying
"build it and they will come." He
further suggested the board hold
a workshop session to brainstorm
any other ideas fellow commis-
sioners might have before the
money is lost because of failure to
find a tenant for the complex.
During a special meeting held
last Wednesday, Commissioner
Warren Yeager suggested moving
the site, if EDA would allow, to
the Gulf County Business Air
Park. EDA officials were not con-
ducive to the move, and said the
locatiofin had to be ore of two pre-
viously approved locations, one
,west of Wewahitchka on Highway
22 and the other south of
Wewahitchka at the intersection
of Highway 71 and Highway 381.

i Regular meeting. Chief Admnlni
Randall Wayne O'Bryan; 19, Swimming With
A Group of Young People Saturday Afternoon Infant Dies


What, started out as an after-
noon of fun and frolic ended in
tragedy Saturday afternoon for
Randall Wayne O'Bryan, 19, of
Highland View. He is the son of
Marsha Burkett and Wayne
O'Bryan, Sr., both of Port St. Joe.
The young man and several
other youth were taking advan-
tage of the warm afternoon by
taking an early season swim in
the Gulf County Canal in front of
Wood's Fisheries.
The youth were swimming
back and forth across the canal
when O'Bryan became tired about
half-way across and began to,
fight for flotation. According to a
Sheriffs Department spokesman
the drowning young man went
underr the water two or three
times, finally going under to stay,
before anyone could get to him
with assistance.
The accident occurred at
about 4:30 p.m., Saturday. His
body was located Sunday morn-
Ing at about 9:50 a.m.
Search and Rescue squads
, searched for the, body through
the night Saturday, using shrimp
nets and an underwater camera
in an attempt to locate the


drowning victim.
Search' operations were be-
gun quickly after O'Bryan disap-
peared from view in the canal wa-
ters. Bo Woods, an employee of.
the city's Wastewater Treatment
Plant, located across the canal
from Woods' Fisheries, witnessed
the young people playing in the
water and saw O'Bryan go down.
He pin-pointed the spot for the
search operations to start.
Search operations were con-
ducted by the Gulf County Sher-
iffs Department, Gulf County
Search and Rescue and several
out-of-town search and rescue
groups.
.The GCSO especially ex-
pressed its appreciation to Eu-
-gene Raffield for the use of his
underwater video camera and
Gene Dykes and Harry Lewis for
the use of their shrimp boats for
the officers to conduct their drag-
ging operations.


trator Don Butler told the board
he had negotiated a purchase
price of $120,000 for the property
(16.77 acres on Highway 71) with
the property owner, J. Frank
Graddy. The price would be
$7,155 per acre.
He said that It would require
approximately $300,000 more
than the $536,750 in grant funds
available to finance the project,
and that he had met with the Gulf
Coast Electric Cooperative board
earlier in the day concerning
financing the funds which they
had previously offered to do.
The $300,000 figure includes
$120,000 land purchase price,
and 25% matching funds of
$178,250. The land purchase
can't be used for matching funds.

At Home
An eight month old baby,
Calvin R. Causey, died at his
home Tuesday morning. When his
parents awakened that morning
they discovered the infant wasn't
breathing and called the Gulf
County Emergency Medical
Services..
Upon arrival of the EMS and'
Gulf County Sheriffs office per-
sonnel at the scene, the baby was
determined to be lifeless and was
transported to the' Medical
Examiner's office in Panama City.
According to Gulf County
Sheriffs Captain Joe Nugent, at
press time Wednesday morning,
death appeared to have occurred
because of natural causes.
The Infant was the son of
Christopher Ray Causey and
Kassidy Gray, who reside on Pear
Drive in Wewahitchka.


St. Joe and UnionAgree Upon


Woodlands Employees Severance


As part of a previously announced
restructuring, St. Joe Corporation and the
United Paperworkers International Tuesday
announced an agreement on the company's
decision to phase out its remaining site
preparation operations.
St. Joe already has been using subcon-
tractors to handle its planting and logging
operations. Site preparation, which involves
clearing harvested sites, has been handled
until now by St. Joseph Land and
Development Company, a subsidiary of St.
Joe.
The move had been expected as part of St.
Joe's restructuring which has been underway
for several years.
In a joint news release, the company and
the union said they have successfully con-
cluded negotiations on an agreement to
ensure that employees affected by the deci-
sion receive a benefit package including gen-
erous severance pay and other assistance
during the transition.
"We are grateful for the service of our
employees who will be affected by this busi-
ness decision, and we want to do all we can to


be of help to them," said St. Joe Chairman
Peter S. Rummell.
"We appreciate the willingness of St. Joe
to sit down at the table with us and hammer
out an agreement on severance pay and other
benefits that is fair to our members and
rewards them for their loyalty and service,"
said Rodney Hall, president of Local 379,
United Paperworkers International Union.
The current three-year contract covering
union employees expired March 9,. 1997.
Headquartered in Jacksonville, St. Joe
would continue its stewardship of timber-
lands that it owns, while subcontracting pro-
duction-related operations. The company has
been in the process of selling off some of its
operations as it reorganizes to focus on real
estate and other areas.
According to Clay Smallwood, manager of
St. Joseph Land and Development's local
office, the Port St. Joe office of the company
would be maintained to oversee the contract
operations of the timberlands.
Over 45 employees were affected by the
decision, not only in Port St. Joe, but also
other offices in Florida and Georgia.

We're Not About To



'"Vanish"

WELL, PORT ST. JOE has certainly attracted the attention
of neighboring cities over the past week hasn't It? One would
think the city has never seen hard times before, or never suf-
fered from an economic stumbling block before.
One would gather from all the attention paid to Port St. Joe
that the neighboring towns never suffer any difficulties nor re-
verses. All is sweetness and light with them. Some of the articles
give the impression to us here in our comer of the world,,pf be-
ing written in the vein 'let's see you come out of this!' ,
We will come out of this smelling like a rose. Bad times have
come to Panama City before. They have also come to Tallahas-
see. Although these cities are largely exempt from hard,times
since their economy is built on government expenditures rather
than private capital. They should be anxious for our condition,
rather than trying to predict our town will dry up and blow
away.
:You see, we work and pay the taxes which finance the gov-
ernments which keep your economies afloat!
SWE HAVE BEEN THROUGH these tough times before. We
know how' to cut back and sunive. It isn't easy, but we know
how to do it.
Could you?
We withstood'a nine month dry spell with no income one
time. We have experienced numerous shut-downs, slow-downs,
and what have you. Still we have a community which is the envy
of other communities about us. Even Tallahassee. Not so long
ago there was 'a baseball tournament being played in Port St.
Joe with a Tallahassee school involved. This writer personally
overheard a Tallahassee parent remark to another Tallahassee
parent, "This is a first-class baseball facility. I wonder how such
a small town manages to have such as this? Why can't we have
such a nice stadium?"
THE ANSWER IS OBVIOUS. Port St. Joe has many facilities
which were financed without government grants. We did it our-
selves with the income we made from working at our 'sub-
standard' jobs .,Mb6st recently we opened a facility to furnish a
place of operation and recreation for our aged-all financed
through local contributions.
This is the reason we'll weather this latest storm, too. We'll
stick together and care for'each other arid do it the old fashioned
way. We'll 'cooperate with each other and give to those in need,
rather than sit on a bar stool philosophizing on what's wrong
with our town or how its residents make a living.
Make no mistake about it; we are collectively anxious about
the future. We would be foolish if we weren't, but, we're not sit-
ting around "collectively holding our breath" dreading the future.
We're not about to "vanish"!


The Mighty Sharks

THE PORT ST. JOE Tiger Sharks demonstrated what the-
people of this community are made of when they sucked it up
gnd won the state, basketball 3A championship. They had every -
opportunity :t6 give lip' in the fourth quaiter-and teams with"
lesser determination probably would have-but they just hiked:
up their britches and did what had to be done to winl
They learned that quality here at home: They showed it to
two Tampa teams, in no uncertain terms.
The Tiger Sharks have played with a handicap in most of
their games this season; a handicap which will be, partially re-
moved next season. You see, the school just barely has enough
students to meet the 3A classification. A school can have twice
as many students as Port St. Joe, and still be classified 3A.
Many of theii opponents this year did have. The Sharks are ac-
customed to playing against greater odds.
THE TEAM ALSO placed three of its teammates on the, all,
tournament team. That's three out of six! Brian Jenkins, Doyle
Crosby and James Daniels each had the help of their other
teammates in being named the best of the best. Daniels was
even designated most valuable player for the entire tournament.
That's the kind of players Port St. Joe has. They rise to the top of
heap like cream in a jug of milk.
SLike so many Shark players before them, the Sharks gave it
their all this year, like several years in the past, arid they ex-
Tcelled to take the number one position in the entire State of Flor-
ida due to hard play and determination. That covers a lot of ter-
ritory the other side of Wewal
SThey deserve the honor.' :

Hunker Down with Kes by Kesley Colbert



Clone Heads Indeed!


I


To tell you the truth,; I
thought about this cloning thing
years ago. Me and Leon and
Jackie Burns, .Paul David
Campbell and a couple of others
would be "getting ready" for our
Saturday morning pick up game.
Boy howdy, I loved those days,
"warming up" consisted of putting
your gloire ohl We were 10 or 12'or
13, we' didn't i'eed to stretch 'or
throw or "get our legs loose", we
showed up ready to play :-I
"There's, six of us." Someone
would state the obvious; but we


all understood the meaning. We
were two guys short. Everybody
knows it's not as good unless
you've got at least eight. You need
a pitcher, a shortstop, a first,
baseman and a left'fielder on each
team. Anything right of second
base is going to be a foul ball in
this game. Our little community,
was so small another guy drop-
ping by wasn't likely .. ...
"I wish we had two Jackle's." I
bet I said that a 'thousand times
in the late fifties ... and meant it
every time! Jack Was A super good
guy and our best shortstop by far.,
And, most impoitfant of all, he
would play all day long.
'Or two'Paul David's." Ricky:
Hale would chime In. -then we'd
have first base covered."
"Or two Leon's so we could ..
. .' ,


I immediately begin to rethink
this cloning deal. People, some-
times one is enough Less is
better Too many cooks spoil
the brothl!Etc, etc.
Leon was a big brother, not a
ball player., He would make me do
my chores, and his! He made me
drink; that ketchup and Epson
salt mixture and .go into Frank's
Dairy Bar and throw up. "While
everybody's 'watching you, we're
gonna .lide behind, the jukebox
and push that button that gives
the free plays." .
Leon's the guy who went back'

All Sheep Look Alike To Me Anyhow Without Conng Process


THE NEWS MEDIA made a
St of "hay" out of the sheep clon-
g story, so why shouldn't I? It's
a good story! It's full of everything'
a good story has. It has mystery,.-
adventure, fiction, science and'
unbelief to fuel Its telling [or writ-
ing].
S Even Time magazine explored
the story from every angle last
week. They went from the soul to
the genes in their examination. It
has turned out to be the biggest
thing since the 'horseless car-
riage.
Come to think of it, it's a
comparable story to the horseless
carriage ... or the airplane ... or
the paper mill operating for a full
year without a single shutdown.
[Notice how I work a little humor
into the present situation here in
Port St. Joe. You say there's noth-
ing humorous about it?]
But, consider, if you will, the
matter of cloning. Making anoth-
er animal of like looks and habits
from the pick of the litter.


SIT'S A GOOD thing success-
ful cloning didn't come along be-
fore it did.. I'm not sure we're
ready to deal with it yet. Suppose
we had a non-ending supply of
Sousehead Sewell's? What would
we ever do with more than the
one we have?
Or a small army of 'Kesley,
Colberts?
Of a brigade of Dave. Mad-
dox's?
Suppose there was more than
the single copy of me?
Of course, scientists .haven't
cloned people yet, so far as we
know, but is that next ,on the
agenda?


IN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


For that matter, how do we
know they actually cloned that
sheep? Is it an exact replica qf
another: sheep, somewhere, or is
it only a close resemblance of the
sheep it was supposed to be
cloned from?
All sheep look alike to me.
There are black sheep, of course.
but we wouldn't want to clone
"those. I suppose there are red
sheep, as well as blonde, but be-'
yond that difference, all sheep al-
.'ready looked pretty much alike to'
Sme, .

:I DON'T KNOW if cloning of
People would be a good thing to
do, even if some scientists could


be successful at doing so. Some
people still like to have children
the old., fashioned way. If, our
.breeding stock" gets in trouble
and can't produce any more,
there may be a demand for clon-
ing .
I know my momma used to
get.exasperated with me and, ac-
companied with a deep sigh, she
would exclaim; "I just don't know
what I would do if I had two just
like youl"
I never 'knew Just -exactly
what she meant by that, but I'm
sure she didn't mean, if I were!
cloned, or something like that.
SClones in those days were:
limited to the Klingons who in-
habited outer space in the Buck
Rogers' comic books. They were
all cloned. You see, the Klingons
were so ugly they couldn't stand
to get near enough to each other
to reproduce the natural way. So,
if they wanted to keep from dying
out, they had to clone .theirioff-'
spring, you see.
There was all kinds of "factu-


al"'knowledge in those Buck Rog-
ers comic books. For only a dime,
we, could have it all,.Or,,we could
have it free of charge if John Rob-
ert Smith didn't chase us away
.froin his, comic, book counter be-
'fore we got through reading.

,WE COULDHAVE supervised
.the cloning of Superman, Spider-
man, Bamana, The Shadow .
even, Little Orphan Annie. Just
corisidler how well off the world
.woFld have been with a few dozen
of .these characters running
around. They were all' "good
guys".
Dr. Frankenstein attempted
to clone a human being back dur-
,rig the infant days of cloning. He
came up with a monster, instead.
I'm afraid we would get more
monsters than good people, if we
tried cloning today, too.
Somehow, it seems as if those
old comic books had more suc-
cess ,with monsters than it did
with good clothes. They were al-
ways the "bad guys" in the sto-


ries. It must be that bad guys are
easier to make than good guys.

COME TO THINK of it, Time
.had a "sidebar" of a story which,
asked the question, 'How About
the Souls?" Do they get cloned
along with the body,'or is that a
separate clone? We may just have
an ethical question to answer
here, before we get too far with
this cloning business.
If a soul gets cloned along
with the body, doesn't that raise
an ethical question about the
clone's soul? Did he [or it] have
the freedom of choice about his
destiny which every man has?
Oh mother This cloning busi-
ness is beginning to get too com-
plicated, even to discuss intelli-
gently[?]
Maybe the best thing to do
here, is to just forget the whole
thing, when it comes to cloning
man, and stick to cloning sheep
After all, we can still use an extra,
wool sweater!

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, MAR. 13, 1997 PAGE 3A



Public Hearing


The measure of any city or
town arq the people who inhabit
the geography. All cities and
townships have their own special,
and certainly undeniable flavor.
There is on the coast of Florida a
S town called Port St Joe and it is
no different, it has its own special
flavor.
One stormy Friday morning
in mid February, our sailing ves-
sel "Sacrifice" had been blown out
of the Gulf of Mexico into the
beautiful bay and protective
waters of Port St. Joe. It was by
chance, not by plan, that our ves-
sel and crew entered the harbor
"Sacrifice" had been battered
by two rather savage storms in
the Gulf. We had lost our engine,
blown out a mainsail, and our
radio was just barely operational.
As we sailed the bay towards Port
St Joe we made a decision to
drop anchor just outside the
Channel leading under the bridge.
We all felt rather dejected because
there were no deep water marinas
to take shelter and make repairs.
We felt we, had made a serious
mistake by coming here. As'
things turned out later we would
find out just how wrong we were.
Shortly after anchoring we
requested information on the
bridge height The response was
immediate. 75 feet, from the:
'Harbor Master Billy Howell of Port
St. Joe. "Uncle Billy" as I later
started calling him was ready,
willing, and able to assist us in
bour time of need. In my many
years of sailing I have never met a
more efficient, knowledgeable, or
better harbor master than Billy,
Howell
Billy quickly arranged a place
o tie up at Wood's Fisheries until
we could make repairs to our ves-
sel. However, we still had one
small problem,, we could not sail
under the bridge without our
engine to the dock at Wood's
Fisheries. Not a problem accord-
ing to Billy. He called one of his
friends "Jimmy" and with his boat
pulled us up the channel to the
'dock quickly and efficiently dis-
playing excellent seamanship in
the narrow congested channel.
Ths ,was not however, the end

three days he made a point of
checking in with us to find out
where we needed to go to find
parts for our repairs. Billy and

welcome but everywhere we went

Awed By Tour
Through Paper Mill
The Star .
Port St. Joe, Florida
Dear Editor:
For the past four years I have
been a winter resident of the St.
Joe area. Recently, it was my
pleasure to have a guided tour of
the Florida Coast Paper Co. I
would like to extend to your read-
ers who may not have had the
same experience, two observa-
tions on my visiL
Firstly, the plant is as Impos-
ing, complicated and massive
lo6kiiig inside 'its walls "as it
..appears -to-. he casual passerby.
Throughout the interior the Inter-
relationship of furnaces, pipes,
huge machines and modern com-
puters is nothing less than mind-
boggling.
Secondly, and certainly what
was most satisfying to this
observer, was the fact that all this
equipment, all this technology, all
this plethora of Incomprehensible
bits and pieces was completely
under the control of a force of


hear, "Kes, I am so tired of picking
up after you, you're worse than
the boys," I could sit Cathy down.
"Honey I've got a plan that's fix-
ing to cut your workload in half."
In 1994 I'd naturally want to
clone my children'. Well, I'd want
to clone them if they promised to
be good. The second Jess would
have to agree, at least on occa-
sion, to speak to me. And start
liking Merle Haggard and Hank
Thompson. And not go around
telling everyone, "Hi, I'm Jesse.
And this is my other brother,
Jesse."
Maybe ve ought to confine
this whole thing to sheep named
Dolly in Scotland.
I don't think I'd want another
me. Somebody that looked like me
and talked like me: and walked

calm, knowledgeable, responsible
men and wolnen who make up the
mill's workforce.
An observer cannot be any-,
thing but Impressed with the ded-
icated, hard working and reliable
people who work within this envi-
ronment In my brief conversa-
tions with some leading techni-
cians it was evident that the
administration' practices a bot-
tom-up style of management that
allows an Individual the opportu-
nity to progress within the sys-
tem. The men and women I talked
with were proud of the record of
the plant and their own accom-
plishments-and so they should
bel It was my privilege to briefly
see them practicing their craft in
such an efficient a, safe man-
ner. My congratulations to them
all and to them all-my thanks.

.Words Fitting for

Our Situation
Dear Wesley:. ;
I came across the following
excerpt and feel that it's most
appropriate at this time in the life
of Port St. Joe. So many people
are affected by recent happenings
and all kinds of thoughts are
going through our heads,,but we
must remember, there is One who
will sustain us if we'll let Him.
[Martin Luther] dearly loved
his wife Katie and was devoted to:
her, but it seems he had to strug-
gle all the time with her dreadful
habit of worry. Once when he was
traveling, he wrote her this letter,
"To the saintly, worrying Lady
Katherine Luther, doctor at
Zulsdorf and Wittenberg, my gra-
clous, dear wife. We thank you
heartily for being so worried that
you can't sleep, for since you
started worrying about us, a fire
broke out near to my door, and
yesterday, no doubt due to worry,
a big stone, save for the dear
angels, would have fallen and
'- crushed us like a mouse in-a trap. 4
If you don't stop worrying,. I'm.
afraid the earth will swallow us.
Pray and let God worry. Cast your
burden on the Lord."
J. Ellsworth Kalas in
The Power of Believing
Cast thy burden upon the
Lord, and He shall sustain thee:
He shall never suffer the righteous
Sto be moved. Psalm 55:22
Trusting in Him,
Marilyn Collier


like me and thought like me and
got mad likeme and laughed like
me and cried like me and liked
like me and disliked like me....
.. would be redundant and
unnecessary and boring and a
waste of universal space.
It would be a blatant attempt'
to fool Mother Nature.
And it's not nice to fool
.,Mother Nature.

Rate Increase
You may also call the Com-
mission's toll-free number,

511-0809 to fax.

At the beginning of the
meeting, procedures will be
set up, to establish an order
Sfor testimony. The Public
Service Commission will
have sign-up sheets, and
customers will be called in
the order of those sheets.
,PSC staff will be available to
coordinate customer conm-
ments and assist members of
the public.


A public hearing will be
conducted bjr the Public Ser-
vice Commission this eve-
ning for the purpose of re-
structuring the natural gas
rates charged by the St. Joe
Natural Gas Company, a
utility serving Gulf and a
portion of Bay counties.
St. Joe currently serves
approximately 3,200 residen-
tial, commercial and indus-
trial customers.
SIn its application, St. Joe
proposes to restructure its
rates to more closely reflect
the cost for each rate class.
The proposal allows for in-
creased rates to be phased in
over a two year period, imp-
plementing the rate increas-
es in two 12-month intervals.
SThe PSC says the utill-
ty-St. Joe Natural Gas-
has not received a rate in-
crease since the PSC ob-
tained jurisdiction over its
operations in 1962,
The restructuring propo-
sal is revenue neutral, mean-
ing that it will have no effect
on the utility's total reve-
nues. Under the utility's pro-,
posed rate structure, all rate
classes should produce an:
equivalent rate of return of
11.92%.
SPSC staff will conduct a,
customer meeting in St.
Joe's service area to hear
and respond to' customer tes-"
timony on Issues'related to
the utility's proposed re-
structuring ,of rates. The
staffs recommendation is
scheduled to be filed on April
2, 1997, and the Commis-
sion vote oh this matter is
scheduled for the April 14,

Did You Know ...


It is against the law for a mer-
chant to advertise a sale if there
are not enough items to meet the
foreseeable demand, unless the
ad mentions that quantities are
limited and states about ho.
many are available.
If a store runs out of a sale
item and there was not a reason-
able supply of the product, then
the store must offer a way for the
consumer to get the item for the
sale price when more come in, if
the ads didn't mention limited
quantities.

meeting the commissioners unan-
imously decided to advertise for
financing to pay the matching
funds and land price and
instructed Butler to contact the
property owner concerning the
acquisition of the property.
Butler said the county still
does not have a firm commitment
from a tenant to occupy any por-
tion of the park, but that he had,
received several inquiries for
small businesses interested in
locating in the county industrial
park.
The board's current plans call
for building an approximately
20,000 square foot building that
can easily be sectioned off into
several small business locations
or left open to house a combina-
tion of large and small business-
es. Most of the details of actual
building configuration will be
worked out during the engineer-
ing phase of the project
Commissioner Traylor said he
had been negotiating with the
City of Wewahitchka concerning
water and sewer service to the
complex.
Mobile Home Ordinance
Commissioners hashed out
wording of their proposed mobile
home ordinance for much of the
one hour workshop session held


prior to the regular board meet-
ing.
They were scheduled to hold
the first of two public hearings in
the proposed ordinance during
the regular meeting, but after
making several revisions to the
original document, the board
decided it would be best to adver-
tise the revised version and
reschedule the public hearings
beginning with the board's next
meeting.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
initiated the ordinance drive stat-
ing that the board needed to do
something to curb the influx of
unsightly mobile homes being set
up in the county. The board
agreed, noting that most of the
problem areas were located in the
north end of the county.
During the board's discussion
of the proposed ordinance,
Commissioner John Stanley sug-
gested that permitting require-
ments should be looked at as the
number one check and balance
for regulating minimum stan-
dards for set-up in the county.
Marion Hough addressed the
board, stating that mobile homes
were the only means some people
had for putting a roof over their
heads. She also questioned the
, ordinance taking more rights and
freedoms from citizens.
Commissioner Traylor stated
that was not the intent of the
ordinance, but rather the real
problem of safety and minimum

Commissioner Warren Yeager.
told the board that the county
had received notification via letter
that DOT would 'be letting the:
bids for paving work to make final'
repairs in May of this year on the
section of road destroyed by
Hurricane Opal.
Actual work oni the project is
scheduled to begin sometime
between August and September:
1997, according to the letter.
The county contracted C. W.
Roberts Construction Company to
make emergency paving repairs
on the section of road shortly
after Opal washed it away. They
then began negotiations with DOT
to rebuild it and fortify it for pro-
tection from future storms.
While not agreeing to as
much protection as the county'
would have liked, DOT did agree-
to the construction of protective"
berms and some other structural
details to create some buffer'
between the roadway and the
Gulfs waters. P ,

#1 In Our Hearts


Sharks Win 3A State
Named to State All
Tournament Team

The Port St. Joe Tiger Sharks
relied upon quickness and pres-
sure defense, which has been the'
backbone of Port St. Joe teams in
recent years, to come from behind
in the final minutes to win the
Class 3A Championship. The
Tiger Sharks have won three
state championships in the past
four years.
Port St. Joe took the momen-
tum in the first quarter, after
Cameron Likely picked off a pass
and threw it down the court to
James Daniels, who finished with
a slam dunk in front of Casey
Sanders, Tampa Prep's 6'1.1"
sophomore. The Tiger Sharks
controlled the first half and led at
halftime 22-17.
"We talked at halftime we
seemed to be a half-step out of
sync in the first half, and in the
third quarter it was probably


Crown With 47-43 Win Over Tampa Prep; Daniels, Jenkins and Crosby


more like a full step," said Coach
Vernon Eppinette.
Port St. Joe's poor offensive
play in the third quarter allowed
Prep to outscore them 11-3 and
take a 28-25 lead. Port St. Joe's
experience in the big game payed
off in the final 1:30 of the fourth
quarter.
James Daniels hit a three-
pointer with 1:26 left to bring the
Tiger Sharks within two points
(41-43); Doyle Crosby then scored
two points to tie the game. Crosby
followed with a rebound of a
missed shot and passed it to
Daniels, who was fouled.


Daniels, a sophomore, made
one free throw to put Port St. Joe
up 44-43. When action resumed,.
Cameron Likely deflected a pass
that James Daniels came up with
and then was fouled. Daniels' free
throw attempt rimmed out, but
Brian Jenkins tipped it in with
:10 left.
Tampa Prep's three point
attempt fell short and Crosby
came up with another rebound
and was fouled with 5.7 seconds
remaining. Doyle made one free
throw to seal a 47-43 victory for
the Tiger Sharks.
Tournament MVP James


Daniels led all scorers with 18':
points. Daniels, Brian Jenkins and':
Doyle Crosby each were named to
the All-Tournament team.
"This is probably one of the
sweetest times of my life," said,
Coach Eppinette following the vic-,
tory. "These kids have had to bat-;'
tie so hard in every ball game that,
I'm just happy for them."

Views On Dental Health

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.


SPremature


Primary Teeth


"Baby", or primary, teeth
usually begin to erupt in the
mouth at about six months of
age. This schedule of eruption
allows the baby to nurse from
the mother's breast for the
first six months. When baby
teeth arrive, breast-feeding
may become painful to the
mother because the infant
tends to bite the nipples. ,
Some babies are born
with a tooth (or teeth) already
present in the mouth. Such
teeth are usually EXTRA pri-
mary teeth. If so, they should
be removed by the dentist. In
some infants, the problem is
that the NORMAL baby teeth
erupt prematurely. These
teeth should NOT be


removed. If breast-feeding
becomes too difficult, the
infant can be bottle-fed.
In either case, the .pres-
ence of teeth at birth or soon
thereafter should be called to
the attention of a dentist. He
can evaluate the situation and
make a recommendation.
Extra baby teeth may cause
difficulty not only with breast-
feeding, but may interfere with
the natural eruption of the
normal baby teeth.

Prepared as a, public service to pro-
mote better dental health. From the

Gulf Educators Attend Florida Educational Technology Conference


While the future.of education
was being discussed this year in
Washington and State Houses
around the country, thousands of
educators experienced it first
hand in Orlando. The world's
leaders in educational technology
gathered at the Orange County
Convention Center February 27
through March 1 for the 17th

How A

Person

Becomes

AYankee
Bob Bolduc, a
Genuine Yankee,
Tells Rotarians
How It's Done
Visiting Yankee, Bob Bolduc
gave the program to the Rotary
Club last Thursday, using as his
subject. "How A Person Becomes
A Yankee."
In explaining how a person
becomes a Yankee, Bolduc left
the definite impression that the
deed is accomplished by being
born one. He told of his ancestors
coming to this continent from
France and Ireland in the late
1700's and early 1800's to illus-
trate how a person becomes a
Yankee.
Being born in Yankee-land, is
how Bolduc became one.
His family tree is interspersed
with soldiers who fought in the
French army with the colonials in
the war of. 1776. They came to
Canada [Quebec] when white peo-
ple were at a premium in .the,
province.
One of his forebears married
the first wte, girl to come to
Quebec. Hetbecame the prosecu-
tor for Quebec and was later
charged with stealing and had to
leave Quebec, ending up in the
Muskegon, Michigan area.
An Irish potato farmer en-
tered the family line about this,
time, by the -name qf J. J.
O'Brian, a good Catholic lad who
came to this country after the
Irish *potato famine of the early
1800's.
t' Being a Catholic Irishman,
O'Brian was allowed to own only
four acres of land. Had he been a
Protestant, he could own all the
land he could buy in Ireland, but,
then, he wouldn't have had to
leave home and migrate to Ameri-
ca.
O'Brian was an interesting
man. He earned his living by
working on the log rafts the lum-
ber mills of Muskegon floated
down the Muskegon River to the
mills. When the tree crop played
out, so did his job. With his sense
of balance, acquired in the log-
ging business, he joined the cir-
cus.
When Bolduc's great-great-
great-great grandmother saw the
Irishman, she fell in love with
him,'even though. he was a "dirty
Irishmanand a 'Carny', to boot."
The story went on, but this
was the most interesting seg-
ment. The remainder had to do
with the prolific nature of early
French and Irish Catholic fami-
lies, which is the way he became
a Yankee ... a Catholic Yankee,
at that!
After his uncle lost a fortune
in the crash of '29, he took up
painting refrigerators s aa way
back to riches. He dreamed up
the idea of painting decorator toi-
let seats and selling them to
hardware stores to market. He
got in on the ground floor of that
business and did pretty well at it.
On the serious side [even
though the story thus far was all
true] Bolduc said the reason for
the "you owe me" attitude of to-
day is that the family has lost its
cohesiveness. "It was 1952 before
we had indoor plumbing in our
house in Michigan. Those cold
winters can be murder when you
have an emergency at night. We
kept a pail indoors at night, for
such emergencies, and it was my
job to carry it out and empty it
the next morning. Such menial
chores accomplished without
grumbling, builds family cohe-
siveness."
Guests of the club were, John
Brown and Jim Drew of Michigan
and Jim Quirkel of York, Pa.

Annual Florida Educational
Technology Conference (FETC).
Gulf County had 29 educa-
tors in attendance at this year's
conference. Expenses for this
conference were paid by the
Blueprint for Career Preparation
Grant received by Gulf County for
the third consecutive year. A
major component of the Blueprint
Grant is staff development for
teachers and administrators. The
FETC was an excellent staff devel-
opment activity for Gulf County's


educators.
FETC allows educators to wit-
ness the integration of different,
technologies across the curricu-
lum-from kindergarten to col-:
lege-including exposure to the
latest hai-dware and educational.
software. With over 230 hour-ilng
concurrent sessions, participants
could choose from a variety of
classes--from building a website
to using ;an interactive videodisc:
system to teach algebra-where
they can learn specific strategies
on how to effectively incorporate


technology into their curriculum.
In addition, half- and full-day
workshops were offered in a
hands-on or demonstration for-
mat to provide an optimal learn-
ing experience through supple-
mental training and awareness.
"The purpose of FETC Is for
educators to gain creative new
ideas and insights on incorporat-
ing technology in the classroom,"
said FETC President and
Executive Director Michael
Eason. "We want to provide the


knowledge and means to accom-
plish that goal."
During this year's FETC, over
300 companies-occupying more
than 800 booths-were fit into
200,000 square feet of exhibit
space in the convention center-
providing attendees.an opportuni-
ty to preview and purchase the
latest educational technology
hardware and software to
enhance teaching and learning at
all levels.
"Educational technology will


play a major role In preparing
children for the 21st century and
the challenges of a global market-
place," said Florida Commissioner
of Education Frank Brogan. "A
quality education; which includes
high-tech skills, must be made
available to all students. FETC
gives educators the tools to make
world-class educational opportu-
nities a reality for every student."
Gulf County's students will surely
benefit from our teachers and
administrators attending the
FETCI

Messiah In The Passover Hosted


By Dalkeith Baptist Church Sun.


Messiah In The Passover, a
sermonic demonstration showing
how Jesus fulfilled the ancient
feast of Passover, will be held on
Sunday, March 16. Dalkeith
Baptist Church will be holding
the service at 10:30 a.m., C.S.T.

Messiah In The Passover, will
be conducted by Israel Cohen, a
/ representative of Chosen People
Ministries, one of the world's most
extensive ministries to God's cho-
sen people-the Jews.
A traditional Passover seder
table is set complete with all the
articles of Passover. The speaker
will explain the different items of
the Passover feast and five special
emphases to how they related to
the New Testament.'
The unleavened bread,
Passover wine, and the entire pro-
gram of Passover are instructive
in understanding the Last Supper
and the redemptive significance of
the crucifixion. Messiah In The
Passover gives the Christian com-
munity insight into Jewish tradi-
tions so that the Jewish roots of
Christianity can be better under-
stood. This program also helps
the Jewish and Christian commu-
nities understand their common
heritage.
This meeting is open to the
public, and Dalkeith Baptist
Church would like to invite the
Christian community as well as


the Jewish community to attend.
The location is Highway 381,


Oliver F. Taylor

United Methodist Church


eight miles south of Wewahitchka.
A love offering will be taken.


Sinners


Wanted

Many clubs want only
the best for membership.
Churches seek out the
lost and invite them to
unite with others in
Christ.
In Luke 19:10 we find
"For the Son of man came


to seek and save the lost." Of course, churches
also invite fellow Christians to become members
in the local church. New people in the commu-
nity, and those who have strayed away from par-
ticipating in Christ's church are also recruited.
Then we all become a team to work together to
seek and save the lost.
At one time or another, all have sinned and
fallen short of the glory of God. Christ invites us
all to receive His salvation. Let us all band
together and share the Christ with each other.
Then we need to share the Christ with each
other. Then we need to share the Christ with
those outside His Kingdom.

Dear Counselor:' : : :.:i
I have a problem I hope canobe
solved by advice from you. I've been
living with my boyfriend for over a
year. It's been his longest running
relationship yet, and he's moved
quite a distance to be with me.
We've been through a lot together
and we've both been tempted to
throw in the towel. But by the grace
of God, we managed to work
through our problems and now are
better than ever.
So, what's the problem? I want
to get married and he doesn't. He
had a previous marriage that
soured very quickly and now says
he'll never marry again. I've never
been married before and I feel as if
I'm always trying to prove myself to
him. How can I show him I won't do
the things his ex-wife did?
More importantly, how can I
get the vow-fearing man to the altar
without him feeling like I've pres-
sured him? I know he loves me.
He's just petrified of being hurt
again.
Sincerely,
Broken-Hearted
and Distressed
Dear Miss Distressed,
It indeed sounds as if your
boyfriend loves you very much.
However, it is not surprising that
he would have a problem commit-
ting to marriage. His experience
with previous relationships, mar-
riage, and problems in your own
relationship may be contributors to
his resistance to make a commit-
ment. It may take him much more
time than you would hope for to
overcome this.
Although your boyfriend is
opposed to marriage, he may not
remain so if giren enough time in a
secure, trusting and growing rela-
tionship. Relationships go through
stages of development Just as peo-
ple do. Trust and security are
important elements that take time
and testing to grow to maturity.
.This development can be slowed
down by complications and prob-
lems such as those you described.
You can accelerate this process
by engaging'in couples counseling.
However, your boy-friend would
have to agree to work on your rela-


Lunch Will Seed the Musical, "Nic at Night" To Be
Future atMexico Presented by Grace-Full Singers
Re ach Methnodist


The Grace-Full Singers chil-
dren's choir of Grace Baptist
Church in Port St. Joe will pre-
sent the musical "Nic at Night" on
Sunday, March 23rd.
The musical was written by
Kathie Hill and will be directed by
Krista Vinson. It is a delightful
presentation of the story of
Nicodemus and the mystery sur-
rounding his relationship to
Jesus.
There will be a choir and
drama cast of over 35 performers
who have worked very diligently
for the past several weeks to pre-
pare this entertaining and
thought-provoking musical play.
The community is cordially
invited to the presentation on
Palm Sunday at 5:00 p.m. at the
church which meets on the sec-
ond floor of the First Union Bank
building.


Special Community

Prayer Held Weekly
The United Pentecostal
Church is issuing a special invita-
tion to everyone in the area to join
with its members each Monday
evening at 7 p.m. for special com-
munity prayer.
Prayer will be held for the
community (spiritually and other-
wise), for those impacted by
recent layoffs and shutdowns,
sickness, and other needs.
Special requests will be accepted
as well. If you are unable to
,attend, call 229-8427 to submit a
special request for prayer.
Those wishing to join should
meet at the First Presbyterian
Church in Port St. Joe, located at
508 16th Street.


A "Spring Break Lunch", fea-
turing homemade soup and sal-
ads, will be served in the
Fellowship Hall of First United
Methodist of Mexico Beach on
Wednesday, March 19, it was
announced today. The lunch is
sponsored by the church's Special
Projects Committee which raises
money for church needs and mis-
sions.
The $3-at-the-door lunch will
be served from 11 a.m. until 1
p.m. in the church's fellowship
hall. Take outs will be available,
according to Wanda Walker, chair
of the committee. "We will use the
proceeds of the lunch as seed
money for a talents project," the,
chairwoman said.
"Every person in our church
wanting to participate will be
given $10 seed money so he or
she can spend the next 10-12
months investing it in their par-
ticular talent. Some may pur-
chase music and offer a concert.
Others may purchase baking
ingredients and sell their goods.
Others may purchase crafts sup-
plies and sell their crafts. The
point is they will use their talents
to multiply their seed money," she
explained.
The multiplied money will be
returned to the church in a year
and used to purchase equipment,
make repairs, and support mis-
sions, "as our administrative
council directs," Walker ex-
plained.
Many of the church's winter
regulars are preparing the soups
for the "Spring Break Lunch" and
all members are preparing salads,
according to David Crawford,
member of the Projects
Committee and coordinator for
the lunch project. "We expect to
have a delicious array of salads
and a variety of soups," he said.
The church is located at 111
22nd Street in Mexico Beach.,
Everyone in the community is
invited.

''tionship as well, and he may resist.
The only other alternative is
more time and patience. His trust-
ing that you would' not do the
things his ex-wife did can only
come from time together without
those things happening.. You can
tell him over and over again that
you are not like her, but he will
more likely believe experience.
It would not be advisable to
place any pressure on him to com-
mit to marriage if he does not feel
ready. However, he should know
how you feel about it. You should
be honest with him and tell him"
how strongly you feel about mar-
riage. At the same time, reassure
, him that you don't want him to
commit to marriage until he is
ready.
You might suggest counseling
to .help him resolve the obvious
hurt that he has experienced.
However, take care not to pressure
him in this area, either.
Finally, you may need to exam-
ine your own urgency to get mar-
Sried and take care that you are not
rushing yourself as well. It seems
you feel pressured to prove to him
that you are trustworthy and may
need to relax and allow tinie to take
care of this. Marriage is a life-long
decision and should never be
rushed.
However, if your boyfriend
agrees, you can both work on and
resolve this problem together.
There are several counselors avail-
able in this area and Gulf County
Guidance Clinic has qualified indi-
vidual and family counselors as
well. Please call for an appointment
if we can help.

"My Favorite Relative", an
Essay by Third Grader'Kayla
Bailey
"My favorite relative Is "Sara
Bailey. She is so beautiful and
sweet. She is in the eighth grade
and 14 years old. She has the
most beautiful eyes. They 'are a
dark brown and they twinkle too.
She looks 'sandy' like me cause
she is Hawaiian too. She's even a
clean-up machine!
Do you know what she likes
to play? Softball, and she is good
too. Even though she is a tad
older, okay, maybe a lot older, but
she 'still is nice to me and she
plays softball with me. She is not
embarrassed to tell people that.
The reason she is my favorite rel-
ative is 'cause, she is lovin' and
caring. I love my cousin Sara
Bailey."
Let's see now. she restated
her topic for her topic sentence,
used describing words, her sen-
tences made sense,, and she
recapped her topic at the close of
the paragraph. Wonder what
grade tthe state would giveher? .


Nurs.Brandyj chooses..Josh.......
Burch as "Student of the Week"'
Nursing assistant Brandy
Beatty chose six year old Josh
Burch as the "Student of the
Week". He is in the first grade and
is the son of Wendy Burch. His
favorite thing to do is swim and he
says that when he grows up, he
would like to be a jet pilot
because, "I like jets and I like to
draw them."
Josh likes to play with his
brother, Sean, Stetson Rich and
Andrew Dorman. His favorite TV
show is Nick at Night; his favorite.
colors are blue, orange and green;


and his favorite song is "Jesus
Loves Me."
Brandy chose Josh because

me three times a day for medi-
cine. He is a cystic fibrosis child.
Josh is always happy and has a
willing hand at all times. Josh
also has a good heart concerning
his friends," Josh is indeed spe-
cial at our school and will receive

In an interview with Annette
Minger, we found out some inter-
esting information. Her favorite
football team is the Florida Gators
and her favorite movie is "A Few
Good Men". She said that she
would like to keep teaching for a
few more years, but then she
would like to be something else.,
We also asked her if she could
change anything in, the. world,
what would it be? She answered,
"I would like to put a smile on
everyone's face!".

Book Critique
This book is about a boy
named Marty who is going to
Danville School. He can add, sub-
tract, multiply and divide better
than anyone in the third grade.
He loved to make up his own
math problems.
Well, school Just started and
his life is miserable because all
third graders had to take gym
class, and in p.e. there was some-
thing called choosing teams. He
hated that.
To find out what happens
next, read the book The Math
Whiz by Betsy Duffey. This is a
great book. It is funny and inter-
esting.

'96-'97

Shark Talk
By: Jesse Colbert


It has been another fantastic
and memorable week in Shark
history:
1) The varsity basketball
team traveled to Lakeland and
dominated Class 3A tourna-
ment play. Coached by Vern
Eppinette, the Sharks defeated
Tampa Catholic .
and Tampa Prep to '
bring Port St. Joe '"
its second straight .l
state champion-
ship and third in .
four years. Con-
gratulations for a
job well done.
2) Our very own
Carol Cathey has
been selected as
Gulf County's Tea- -
cher of the Year..She is a repre-
sefitative of what is great in our
school. Mrs. Cathey, just to let
you know I have not forgotten,
the opposite of B plus or minus
the 'square root of B squared
minus four AC all over two A,


3) The Shark Cove is having
a half off sale on all green items.
In store for next week:
1) The varsity baseball team

the Ith to play their first dis-
trict game. On the
14th, they will go to
Chipley to play the
Tigers, and on the
following day they

Monticello for their
second district

2) The adminis-
tering of nine week

3 DOWN, ONE TO GO
March 13, Thursday, is the
last day of the third nine week
term. Friday is the official start of
the last nine weeks. Students will
get their new schedules first thing
in the morning and go to their
first period class. The annual
prom attire show will be held dur-
ing the last half of first period, so
senior high students can see
what's available for prom night.
:;The first part of the new FCAT r
testing, Is done, with the' .seond,~.
half scheduled for next week.
There is a lot of testing during the
spring every year. The HSCT
retakes, the new FCAT, the CTBS
series-and students also have to
deal with teacher-made tests in
their classes. 't is not time for let-
ting down, but rather students
need to realize this is the most
important time of the year. Often
graduation, sports eligibility, pro-
motion, and the possible necessi-
ty of summer school are depen-
dent upon a student's perfor-
mance the last term. Pumhp them
up and keep them going to the
end!
Seniors! The last payment of
$17 must be paid March 17
(Friday of next week). This year's
trip is planned for the Orlando
area, centered around Walt
Disney Worldi If you're going, get
your cash in on time. This is the
final deadline. Take care of busl-
ness!ll
STake a minute and congratu-
late our Gulf County partners
from the South..for winning the
boys' State 3-A, Championship
last week in Lakeland. They're


r


becoming a household name in
Lakeland! Hmmmm-I wonder
how they'll do next year in Class
2-Al 2-A folks had better get
ready!
The devastating news about
the paper mill is sure to have pro-
found effects on everything in our
county, including our schools.
Many families with school, age
children will be scrambling to
adjust to the conditions brought
Shboyt by this economic downfall.
SI've heard people talking
ab6ut the "trickle-down" effect on
other businesses, a term popular-.
ized during the Reagan years. Our
schools will not be immune to all
of this. Everyone is holding their
breath, waiting to see what hap-
pens. Hopefully, everyone is start-
ing to make plans to weather the
storm.
Parents, if your student has
difficulty coping with this situa-
tion, our counselors will be avail-
-able to provide counseling.
SMeanwhile, we'll all hope for an
:early resolution to the market
conditions that' led to the prob-
lem.
To end on a higher note this
week, jobs will be available this
summer for economically disad-
vantaged students through the
Summer Youth' Employment
Training program (ages 14-18 in
school students). Certification of
eligibility. will be at WHS
Commons April 5 from 8 to 12
a.m. Port St. Joe students will be
notified of opportunities in the
south end of the county at a later
date. Watch for additional
announcements about this pro-
gram.

When most people think of
disaster preparedness, they think
of the city, county and state gov-
ernment and the American Red
Cross. While this is true, actual
disaster preparedness should
begin in each home with all fami-
ly members involved.
Each household should have
a "family disaster plan", and
should be knowledgeable con-
cerning disasters such as fires,
thunderstorms, tornadoes,
floods, hurricanes, etc. The
American Red Cross conducts
educational programs and pro-
vides educational material on all
these disasters. To obtain addi-
tional information, call the
Capital Area Chapter of the
American Red Cross at (904) 878-
6080 or check out their home
page at:
www.tallytown.com/redcross.
In your "family disaster plan",
certain emergency supplies
should always be maintained.
Elhergency supplies maintained
in your home should include:
*a three day supply of water (one
gallon per person per day) and
food that won't spoil;
*one change of clothing and
footwear per person, and one
blanket or sleeping bag per per-
son;
*a first aid kit that includes your
family's prescription medications;
*emergency tools including a bat-
tery powered radio, flashlight, and
plenty of extra batteries;
*an extra set of car keys and a
credit card, cash or travelers
check;
*sanitation supplies;

ing your family disaster plan, it is
recommended that you:

bers to discuss the dangers of fire,
severe weather, and other emer-
gencies. Explain how they should
respond to each.

home for each type of disaster. ,

side your neighborhood in case
you cannot return home after a
disaster.
*Take a basic first aid ,and
CPR class.

gency supply kit, and do the fam-
ily training as recommended

The Farm Service Agency
(FSA) of the U. S. Department of
Agriculture has announced that
the 15th Conservation Reserve
program (CRP) sign-up opened
March 3, and will extend through
Friday, March 28. Eligible land
owners can sign up at their local
FSA Office. The FSA Office in
Blountstown services Calhoun,
Liberty, Franklin and Gulf
Counties.
During the sign-up period,
operators of eligible cropland and
those with expiring CRP contracts
may apply to participate in the
CRP. Payment terms and cost
share assistance are determined
by each contract. The term of the
contract must run for 10 to 15
years. Existing CRP contracts
cannot be extended, and new con-
tracts must be executed for all
acreage enrolled this year.
Under the CRP, farmers and
ranchers receive a rental fee and
cost-share assistance from the
Commodity Credit Corporation
(CCC) in return for converting
environmentally sensitive acreage
to desirable environmental prac-
tices. Planting permanent vegeta-
tive cover on highly erodible land
and certain other acreage can
improve water and air quality as
well as benefitting many species
of wildlife.
The CRP is funded by the
CCC and administered by the
USDA Farm Service Agency in
cooperation with the Natural

New Better Variety of Sweet Corn Developed for Florida Growers


For Both Commercial Growers and Home Gardeners


If you ate corn-on-the-cob,
last summer, and found that it
tasted especially sweet, you might
have been enjoying an extra sweet
variety that was developed several
years ago by the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Science. Although
this hybrid, called "Florida
Staysweet", has not replaced
standard popular corn varieties, it
has been gaining increased use by
both commercial growers and
home gardeners.
As its name implies, "Florida
Staysweet" corn keeps its sweet
flavor long after it's been harvest-
ed unlike common sweet corn,
which begins to taste starchy
soon after t's picked. According
to Extension Vegetable Specialist
Jim Stephens, of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agriculture Sciences, the key to
this hybrid's sweetness is in its
genetic makeup.
A new gene added to "Florida
Staysweet" gives this corn a nine
percent sugar content, compared

to only a three percent sugar con-
tent in regular hybrids. The high-
er sugar content also means that
"Florida Staysweet" has less
starch in Its kernels than regular
hybrids. Obviously, those factors
give variety a true "staysweet"
power.
In addition to its improved
flavor, "Florida Staysweet" has
shown some resistance to north-
ern leaf blight, a serious fungus


disease of many of the common
sweet corn hybrids.
If you'd like to include
"Florida Staysweet" in your back
yard garden this year, you should
be able to obtain the seeds from
your local garden center. The
seeds will be packaged in a mois-
ture proof bag, and they should
be stored in a cool dry area. If the
seal is broken, moisture in the air
will cause the seeds to lose their
vitality quite rapidly. So, a seed
bag that has been opened should
be resealed as soon as possible.
Recommended planting dates
for "Florida Staysweet" are from


mid-March to mid-April in North
Florida.
Since this hybrid has so little
starch In the kernels; its rate of
germination and degree of
seedling vigor may be less than
for the commonly grown sweet
corn hybrids. To solve this prob-
lem, simply plant extra seed in
the row, and thin the seedling
plants to the proper spacing.
One precaution! Make
sure you keep planting of "Florida
Staysweet" isolated from any reg-
ular sweet corn you or your
neighbors may be growing by at
least 500 feet of distance. This is
necessary because pollen from
any of the regular sweet corn
hybrids that falls on "Florida

Staysweet" silks will cause
starchy, unsweet kernels on the
ears, and destroy their excellent
flavor.
In summary "Florida
Staysweet" is.an improved sweet
corn hybrid, developed by the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences,
which is gaining popularity with
commercial growers and back-


yard gardeners alike. It has three
times the sugar content of the
regular corn hybrids, and retains
its sweetness for a much longer
period of time after harvest.
So, if the corn you.bite into
this summer tastes particularly
sweet, don't be surprised. "Florida
Staysweet" may have reached
your table. We're sure you'll enjoy
it.
