Flathead ats .. County Joining Calhoun in Attempt to Eradicate Them



Final Adoption of County's Tobacco Ordinance to Ban Product's Use by Teenagers-No Objections


Gulf County Commissioners
decided to join Calhoun,County
and "wage war" against flathead
catfish in the Apalachlcola River
System during Tuesday evening's
regularly scheduled commission


meeting.
Sonny O'Brian, representing
the Calhoun County Commission,
presented an ordinance to the
Gulf County Commission for their
consideration. The ordinance


addresses the problems flathead
catfish are creating in the river,
asks the Florida Game and
Freshwater Fish Commission to
look into the issue, and suggests
taking steps to eradicate or


reduce the flourishing population
of the fsh.

Business Air Park Project May Fly

$1 Million Grant May Fund Development of Runway Improvement


A grant from Enterprise
Florida for as much as one million
dollars to pave the Business Air
Park runway and a written com-
mitment from Slender You
International,'Inc. and an aircraft
restoraton company to locate'at
the facility were the main topics
at a special county commission
meeting held Thursday April 3rd
to consider applying for the grant
funds.
Dennis Weaver, Airpark com-
mittee member, told the board
that Bridget Merrill (Enterprise
Florida) had told him that some
funds were remaining and avail-
able in Enterprise Florida's cur-
rent budget, but the county would
have to apply quickly in order to
meet the deadline for considera-
tion.
Weaver said Gulf County
could have the funds in as little as
90 days if awarded the grant The
money would be used to pave the
r* runway with concrete and install
drainage and lights.
Weaver told the board the
funds required no matching
,money and came with no strings
attached to the county.
Some concerns were raised
by the board suggesting that a
deal that sounds too good to be
true, may be just that
Commission Chairman Na-
than Peters, Jr. told the group he
would like to see things in black
and white before he offered his
support to the application
process. He stated there were "too
many questions and not enough
answers," especially concerning
the county's liability at the airport
and suggested a workshop to fur-
ther evaluate the grant proposal.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
countered with a motion to sub-
mit the grant application and
gather answers for the board's
questions during the time span
that the application was being
reviewed by Enterprise Florida.
Commissioner Johnny Stanley
seconded the motion which
passed 4-1 after discussion.
Chairman Peters opposed.
In order for Gulf County to
accept the grant funds, ownership
of the Costin Air Park will have to
be transferred to the county. This
has already been offered by owner


Leonard Costin and would
include the 200 foot by 5,000 foot
air strip, as well as a 66 foot by
5,000 foot access road paralleling
the air strip.
Bob Clark, president of
Slender You International, Inc.,
told the board by letter that he'
was ready to relocate his exercise
equipment plant and an aircraft
restoration company in Gulf-
County. The two companies
would bring with them an initial
employment of approximately 15
people with growth potential to
over 50 employees.
The county has agreed to help
the Business Air Park with a fea-
sibility study to enlarge, improve
and .develop the airport.
Thursday's action doesn't affect
those plans, but according to
Weaver, will only serve to under-
score the feasibility of the project.
The long term goal of the air-
port committee is to apply for fur-
ther funds to expand the air park
to a total of 312 acres and provide
a full service airport facility. The
site being considered is south of
the existing runway and will focus
growth away from Cape
Plantation (a residential area).
During the board's regular
meeting Tuesday evening, a com-


mittee was named and approved
by the board to answer some of


the county's, questions and con-
cerns about the air park.


Airport committee members, Joel Strait and Dennis
Weaver and Weaver's wife Jana, answer the commissioners
questions concerning the airport.


Pate Asks For Another (Final) Term


Incumbent Mayor Frank Pate


FRANK PATE


advised The Star this week that
he plans to seek reelection to
what will be his last term in of-
fice, next month, in the municipal
elections. If he is successful in
his bid for reelection, Pate will
have served as Mayor of the City
of Port St. Joe for a period of 32
years-longer than any other
man in history.
Pate stated, in making his
announcement, that recent devel-
opments within the community
caused him to feel that he should
ask the people for one more term
in office; citing first of all that he
did not want to leave office with
the paper mill in its present con-
dition. He said he also wanted to
see the completion of the down-
town redevelopment project, the
downtown marina project, Gulf


SCoast Community College branch
campus and the water/sewer ex-
tension in Ward Ridge. /
He stated he has hopes of
completing negotiations for the lo-
cation of an industrial park on
the Intracoastal waterway. Pate
said he has already been in touch
with officials at St. Joe Corpora-
tion and they have indicated a
willingness to discuss setting
aside lands on the Gulf County
Canal for the purpose of industri-
al development.
Pate concluded his an-
nouncement by saying, "I have
been honored to serve these
many years as mayor, and I hope
the people will allow me to serve
one more two-year term to com-
plete the projects the city now
has in progress."


major contributing factor. Stories
were shared by Gulf County
Commissioners John Stanley,
Billy Traylor and Warren Yeager
attesting to the ferocious appetite
of the flatheads and O'Brian
joined in with a few tales of his
own.
Commissioner Traylor shared
a report of a Wewahitchka resi-
dent catching a flathead that had
eaten a whole squirrel. But, the
real concern was that flatheads
are regularly being confirmed to
have a stomach full of bream,
bass and even channel catfish.
The GFC are encouraging
game fishing for the giant catfish,
capable of reaching weights of
100 pounds, but O'Brian said
that wasn't enough to control the
species. "They're growing and
multiplying faster than we can
catch them," he said.
Gulf County Chief
Administrator Don Butler said he
had accompanied the GFC on a
survey of flatheads along .a 10-
mile stretch of the river. He said
several tons of fish per mile were
electrically shocked to the sur-
face, verifying the reported large
population.,
The catfish was introduced
into area waterways in 1994 when
Tropical Storm Alberto created
major flooding in the Southeast
(including Gulf County) bringing
the fish downstream from
Georgia.
One method suggested to
reduce flathead numbers was
electrical shocking devices similar
to what CFC uses during their
surveys.
Gulf County unanimously
adopted the resolution. O'Brian
hopes to get all Florida counties
bordering the affected waterways
to join forces to find a solution to
the flathead problem.
Tobacco Ordinance Passes
Final adoption of Gulf
County's tobacco ordinance drew
no public opposition as the board
held their second and final public
hearing on the issue; just as the
first public hearing received no
negative input regarding the ordi-
nance.
Gulf County's ordinance will
put teeth into state laws regulat-
ing the sale of tobacco products to
minors by going one step further
and prohibiting its use and pos-
session. It also provides penalties
for enforcement including fines
and community service hours for
violation.
Gulf County Judge Bob
Moore and Gulf County Public
Health Director Doug Kent
revived the issue during the
board's February 25th meeting
and the commission decided to


proceed with steps to enact the
ordinance.
The board unanimously voted
to adopt the ordinance following
the public hearing.
Animal Control Ordinance
During a special meeting of
the board held last Thursday,
Commissioner Tommy Knox sug-
gested the board look into redoing
the county's animal control ordi-
nance, "anc include some specific
rules and regulations for the St
Joe Beach and Beacon Hill area.
Knox told the board that Gulf
County currently has seven differ-
ent control ordinances on the
books, some of which contradict
each other, making it confusing to
enforce them. He also reported
that during a recent town meeting
between beach residents and
himself, concerns about animals
on the beach were at the top of
the list of items discussed.
His suggestions included
bringing all of the county's animal
control ordinances into one ordi-
nance and ironing out any dis-
crepancies and including a leash
law for animals on the beach in
his district.
After discussion, board chair-
man Nathan Peters, Jr. asked
board attorney Tim McFarland to
get with Comrmissioner Knox and
draft a new ordinance for the
board to look over before being
considered.
In Other Business
*Authorized County Adminis-
trator Larry Wells to proceed with

Three Openings To Be


Filled On City Commission

Commissioner Williams Declares He Won't Run
It's election time in Port St. Joe once again, with the Munici-
pal Election scheduled for Tuesday, May 13 and the second pri-
mary for Tuesday, June 3.
In the meantime, it is candidate qualification time through
next Wednesday, April 16. The qualification books opened yes-
terday, Wednesday, April 9, for potential candidates to pay their
qualification fees and put their name on the ballot to seek one of
the three seats up for assignment by the voters.
THREE OFFICES TO BE DECIDED
The three positions coming open will be those of Mayor-
Commissioner and two Commissioner posts. These offices are
currently being held by Frank Pate, Jr., Mayor-Commissioner;
Edwin Williams, Commissioner, Group 2, and Charles Tharpe,
Commissioner, Group 1. All are for two year terms.
Williams has already said he will not seek reelection, after
serving in his group for several years, due to health reasons.
Three citizens have expressed intentions to officially seek elec-
tion to the post; Minnie Likely, Damon McNair, Jr., and Saul
Jones. Neither had officially qualified at press time yesterday.

REGISTRATION BOOKS OPEN
The registration books are open for one more day-through
Friday of this week-for those who have not registered. The elec-
tion will be conducted by Cora Sue Robinson, Gulf County Su-
pervisor of Elections, who says registration in the county also
automatically registers one in the city and qualifies them to vote,
provided the elector also lives within the Port St. Joe city limits.
All election business and voter registration must be done at
the office of the supervisor in the Gulf County Courthouse.

NAFTA

One of the Perils of Belonging

IT'S IRONIC, ISN'T IT, that Congressman Allen Boyd was in
Port St. Joe, throwing up caution flags over the operation of
NAFTA one week and the spectre of tainted strawberries from
Mexico should strike the nation's school children the very next
week.
This is the sort of thing the congressman was aiming at
when he expressed dismay over foreign producers not playing on
a "level field" with American producers. American-produced
strawberries, or any other foodstuffs, must meet strict testing'
and preparation standards to meet the Agriculture Department's
requirements for safety. Even these strict standards come under
fire every once in a while. How much more lax must the foreign-
produced food preparation be?
IT COSTS MONEY TO meet these high standards Americans
have come to take for granted from the producers of products
they ingest, even to the point where they don't give a second
thought to tainted products being sold in our markets at any
time; even highly perishable items.
This extra cost is necessarily passed on to the customer
when the product is purchased. In America, when a food prod-
uct is cheaper, we automatically assume the product, itself, is of
an inferior grade. We never suspect that it has been packed in a
less than acceptable manner, because the law just doesn't allow
it to happen. We don't cut corners in the packaging of our food.
But, others do! And that's just the sort of thing the congress-
man was aiming at when he said he was introducing a bill to re-
quire foreign packers to go by our requirements, in packaging
food products to sell. on American markets.
IT WILL TAKE EXTENSIVE policing of the food industry to
see that American standards have been adhered to, but such po-
licing would have prevented such happening as the outbreak of
Hepatitis "A" among our school children which occurred last
week.
Of course, when we insist upon buying by the .lowest bid we
are opening ourselves up to all kinds of things. We believe there
should be more emphasis placed on the best portion of that de-
scription, lowest and best bid.
The news media placed an unusual emphasis upon the fact
that Hepatitis "A" wasn't very dangerous. but in our eyes it was
dangerous enough. And what if the disease strain had been
cholera, smallpox, or even Hepatitis "B" or "C"?
Tainted food is nothing to play around with or take lightly.



Testing Time Begins
THE OTHER SHOE HAS been dropped. The paper mill is
now idled and the time of testing has started for the people of
Port St. Joe and for the people in the area surrounding the city.
It is strange how much ripple effect such a small town can have
.on even the larger cities around us. People as far away as Mari-
anna and Tallahassee are gearing up for a period of constraint
During this time of no production we are heading into; i "-
It's not going tb be easy.
We're going to have to change our economic life-style consid-
erably. Merchants and financial institutions are ready to go
along'with paper mill workers and others who depend on the
mill operating for a livelihood. If a worker made his payment reg-
ularly when he was working; we believe he will be allowed the
leeway he needs to weather this latest storm.
WE HAVE SEEN PAPER MILL down time before. It's nothing
new. We have also seen long protracted shutdowns before and
weathered the storm as only a matter of inconvenience.
The only different ingredient introduced to this latest shut-
down, is the word "indefinite" added to the exercise. We think it
is this ingredient which has caused such attention from news
media this time around.
The uncertainty of it all.
SBut we have at least been reassured, in recent days, that the
shutdown is like any other shutdown; the mill will start up
again, just as soon as this economic crisis has been weathered.
AFTER THE PAPER market straightens. out, and production
is started once again, we will all be like that new mother, who
swears she'll never have another baby.
We will forget about the hardships caused by abbreviated in-
come and start living at a standard which can potentially cause
another crisis with another shutdown in the future.

these days. I thought Pete was
dead. I hadn't seen or heard any-
thing on him in years. But there
he was, big as life, handing out a
Grammy to a skinny, long haired,
semi-bearded young bopper who I
had never seen or heard of before.
Here was a case where I was
much more interested in the pre-
senter than the presented.
Pete Seeger was a folk singer
of some ndte back in the 60's. He
was not a great singer. As a mat-
ter of fact, he was not even a very
good singer, had a very average to
poor voice, I thought, and he
never came close to having a hit
record. He wasn't about to make
anyone forget Peter, Paul and


And, ouy nowuy, udi ne ill right
into the time period. The early
60's was a time of change. All of a
sudden it was fashionable in
America to protest something,
anything, and usually, every-
thing. Anti-establishment, I
believe, is the way Pete classified
himself. He didn't talk loud or
ram anything down your throat,
mind you. He just, in a very intel-
lectual way, let you know you
could agree with him-or fall in
with the fat pigs that were run-
ning and ruining our country.
Pete did a lot of his protesting

policemen, congressmen, judges,
presidents, etc. represented the
authority that he so abhorred. I'm
telling you-he wrote the protest
manual for the 60's!
I'm fifteen years old. i'm
bored. I'm tired of always doing it
"somebody else's way". And I ain't

figured it was my time to protest!

myself. I couldn't go along with
him about those Commies, but I
did like the new expressions; like
cool-daddy, far-out, I can dig it,
folk-revival, beatnik and Joan
Biaz. If I could'a coaxed one
whisker out'a my chin, I'd a' had
me a goatee.
And right in the middle of all
of this, Pete was doing an old
depression era song he'd learned


cornfield
One had bushel, one had a
peck
The other had a r6ast'near
down his neck.
They were high flying .... .
It made perfectly good sense
to me in 1963.
I reckon the song that defined
what Pete Seeger was all' about
was Little Boxes. It was a parody
on the establishment's reluctance
to embrace, try or even tolerate
anything that might remotely be
different than the norm. Whether
they were little boxes or houses or
ideas, they "were all made out of
ticky-tacky and they all came out
the same".

Have You Every Been Caught At Your Evening Meal By A lephone Solicitor?


WHAT'S WITH ALL these
firms soliciting over the tele-
phone? One can't sit down after
supper and relax, reading the
newspaper, without getting up
every few minutes to answer the
phone.
"Hello, Wesley," they will say
in a lilting voice; all bubbling over
with enthusiasm. "I'm so and so,
from such and such a firm, here
to save you money! You want to
save money, don't you?"
Or
"Hello, Wesley, I'm so and so
from such and such an invest-
ment firm wanting to help you

have to do, is buy several incre-
ments of this fine investment, for
a minimum of $50,000 then just
sit back and watch the money roll
in! You can't losel"

I WONDER IF anybody ever
took 'advantage' of this or any
other like offer over the phone?
Did anyone, who happened to

have increments of $50,000 .
cash lying around, get it by
falling for such an' invitation?
Surely. someone, somewhere,
fell for this 'good deal' at some
time.,
The other night-Wednesday,
I believe it was-I had just fin-
ished supper and was relaxing for
a few minutes in my recliner, all
reared back and stretched out,
when the telephone rang.
I made it to the phone just
before the answering device
kicked in and was greeted by a,
'Wesleyl How are you!"
Well, I didn't recognize the
voice so I just gave it a polite, "I'm


fine, how are you?"
iThat opened the flood-gates!
'Wesley," note the first
,,'name, old buddy, greeting ..
'"I'm Joe Interruption, calling you
*to find out if you are satisfied
with your current home owner's
carrier-You do have home own-
-ers' insurance, don't you?"
"Do you think you're paying
too much? Are you getting quick
settlement of your claims? Does
your present company come by
and wash your windows periodi-
.cally? Or, would you like to
switch to a firm which: gives you
all those things? Let me tell you:
about OUR firml"


I stopped him there with, "I
have been using the 'same insu-,
rance firm for 45 years and I'm.
perfectly satisfied. Besides, are
you located in Port St. Joe?
Things' are getting tough in Port
St. Joe now and I don't buy any-
thing I can't buy here."
Well, that got him off the line,.
but I'm sure he'll be back.

THEN, THE SAME evening,
about 30 minutes later, the
phone rang again.
I was once more laid back, re-
laxing after the last call, in my re-
cliner, watching, 'Wheel of For-
tune' when a young lady wanted
to speak with Frenchie. She said,,
"Frenchie" just like she was a
good friend calling her to chat, so
I gave the phone over to Frenchie.
Well, just a few words were
exchanged before I knew it was
another salesperson, using .our
telephone and our leisure time as
a sales tool.
'We're satisfied with the ser-


vice we presently have," I heard
Frenchie tell the young lady.
It was all of four or five miih--
utes before Frenchie could get rid
of her.
She was from AT&T, selling
long distance service .. "cheaper
than what we are paying. for it."
It's always cheaper!
That same woman, or her as-
sistant, or another solicitor, calls
at least once a week with the
same message.

JUNK MAILERS ARE almost
as bad, sending requests for
everything from rock and roll
tapes to credit cards. You have
somewhere you can write, getting
your name removed from the di-
rect, junk mail lists, but with the
direct, junk calls, you have no re-
course. You can't even insult
them and be done with it. They're
right back again in just a day or
two.
They call at work. They call at
home. They call at all times of


day or night. There's no escape.
*:What can we do about these
people? I'll bet that if you were to
fall for their lines and make a
buy, they would be right back
again in just a few days, wanting
to sell something 'better and
cheaper'.
To put it mildly, they are a
first class pestl

THE ONLY SOLUTION I can
think of is to secure an unlisted
number, or,have the phone taken
out. If I do this, I have isolated
myself and done away with a
good and valuable service.
There's nrot much advantage
to having a,telephone if friends
can't find your number to give
you a welcome call.
A telephone is a valuable gad-
get which saves a multitude of
steps each and every day, but the
first time I get one of these 'solici-
tous' calls after 1:00 in the morn-
ing, I'm yanking the sucker out
by the roots!

. Elections

Worker Is

Terminated
At the request of the Gulf
County Commission, Supervisor
of Elections Cora Sue Robinson
reported to the board Tuesday
evening that a problem had exist-
ed in her office with an employee
suspected of embezzling funds.
She said the problem had been
verified by county auditor, Mike
Tucker, and that the employee
concerned had been terminated.
During a conversation with
Robinson Wednesday morning,
she said Tucker audited the books

According to Sheriff McKei-
then, his decision to go federal
was based on the fact that Pryor
was a major distributor of crack
cocaine and the penalties in the
federal system are much stiffer.
McKeithen stated this case is
far from over and he expects sev-
eral more persons to be indicted.
This case reaches other jurisdic-
tions across the state of Florida
which makes involving the federal
authorities, such as DEA, appro-
priate.
Sheriff McKeithen also said
that with the help of DEA he will
continue to pursue this case and
at least put a halt to this particu-
lar avenue for crack cocaine.


According! to a news release
by the Gulf County Sheriffs
Office, Alashia Pryor, of 624
Hodrick Street in Port St. Joe, has
been indicted by a federal grand
jury on charges of trafficking in
crack cocaine.
Pryor, who was arrested on
February 18th by Gulf County
Sheriffs deputies, had approxi-
mately $40 thousand dollars
worth of crack cocaine. A pound
and a half of crack cocaine was
seized from Pryor'skNorth Port St.
Joe home.
Due to the quantity of cocaine
Involved, Sheriff McKeithen had
requested the case be dealt with
in the federal court system.

*(DM)-When you select chicken for your next.barbecue, try "Sweetly Spiced
Grilled Chicken Thighs" for a tasty change. These tender, boneless dark meat.
pieces marinate prior to cooking in a savory combination of Kikkoman
Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce, chopped green onions, paprika and a tad of vine-
gar to give them a wonderful summertime flavor. The delicate sweetness of
bottled teriyaki sauce, a blend of naturally brewed soy sauce, wine, sugar and
select spices, is a great shortcut seasoning. For easy grilling, the thighs are
threaded on skewers for effortless turning. Wedges of fresh cantaloupe,
grapes and a crisp green salad are perfect complements for this succulent
grilled chicken entree..
SWEETLY SPICED GRILLED CHICKEN THIGHS
3 Cup Kikkoman Teriyaki 1 teaspoon vinegar
Marinade & Sauce 8 chicken thighs (about 2 2 lbs.),
3 green onions and tops, chopped boned

Shas been paid out to individuals
who reported violations during
this period."
Hill said the success of the
program goes to citizens who see
violations and are willing to step
forward and make a call to stop
the violation, and to judges in
Florida who require wildlife defen-
dants make restitution to the
Wildlife Alert Reward Fund.
"Some states have similar vio-
lation-reporting programs but
they depend on public donations
to fund their reward system and
generally there's just not enough
money to keep a program viable,"
Hill said. "We've been quite fortu-

For the six month period end-
ing December 31, 1996, Hill said
wildlife officers made 890 arrests
statewide and the Wildlife Alert
committee paid $5,475 to 177
individuals. %
The incidents included the
arrests of three men near Plant
City for shooting and killing an
immature bald eagle; the arrests
of 12 people on 41 charges in
northwest Florida in "Operation
Blackhawk" for wildlife law viola-
tions, illegal use and sale of nar-
cotics and illegal use of gill nets;
and a case in Leon and Jefferson
counties where five subjects were
charged with illegally killing and
selling deer, game fish and alliga-
tor.
Hill said the percentages vary
from year to year but in some
years 70% or more of the Wildlife
Alert callers refuse a reward and
instead they simply want the par-
ticular illegal activity stopped. For
those that do want a reward, he
said they can remain anonymous,
receive a code and are urged to
call back to see if an arrest has
been made. The reward payments
range from $25-$1,000 depending
on the type and seriousness of the
violation.
Hill urged all those interested
in the outdoors' to pick up. a
Wildlife Alert bumper sticker for
their vehicles from any commis-
sion regional office. He said viola-
tions can be reported in north-
west Florida by calling the GFC's
Panama City office toll-free at 1-
800-342-1676.
Some cellular phone sub-
scribers may report violaips

Youth Day at Dick Howser Stadium
Nearly 100 of Port St. Joe Dixie Youth/Boys Baseball League's players, with chaperones and
Seminole Boosters in tow, journeyed to Tallahassee Sunday to take in a game between the Florida
State Seminoles and Clemson Tigers during "Youth Day" at the ball park.
Co-sponsoring the venture were the Gulf County Seminole Booster Club and the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club. Thanks are extended to the following organizations for making the trip possible:
Lions Club, Kiwanis Club, First United Methodist Men's Club, Duren's Piggly Wiggly, and the Junior
S. Service League.
In the photo at left, a Seminole player takes time out from his. warm-up for a few autographs.
At right, the Seminole's starting center fielder,.J. D. Drew (39), leads a group of the young players
onto the field for pre-game festivities.


It's Hit With Us!
Members of Port St. Joe Dixie Boys' Piggly Wiggly and Discount Auto Parts baseball teams, are
shown in the photo above in front of a newly erected concession stand on their home field, which
is located adjacent to PSJHS's baseball field on Gautier Memorial. The building is the result of
100% of volunteer labor and materials donations.
Bayside Lumber gave approximately $550 worth of the building materials necessary for the
task. Steve Brant's Roofing donated all materials and labor needed to roof the building; Carpet,
Country donated the floor covering; and Beach Combers Pizza contributed wood used for counter
tops. Andy Duke donated all the nails and fasteners, as well as spending an entire work day along-
side Chuck Quaranta to construct the building.
The players, coaches, and parents of the Dixie' Boys league would like to heartily thank each
and every donor for their support of the project and invite everyone out to see it during their
Tuesday and Friday night games beginning at 7:30

Many adults develop
problems with their jaw joints
which are primarily caused
by a bad bite, stress, or a
combination of the two. This
condition is known as TMJ
SYNDROME -(temporo-
mandibular joint syndrome).
Symptoms are varied and
include aches and pains in
the joints (just in front of the
ear), headache, stiff neck,
popping and clicking in the
jaw, and muscle spasms.
Although most TMJ
patients are adults, it is pos-
sible for the condition to
develop at an early age.
Headaches, stuffy ear, ear
aches or ringing, and clench-


ing or bruxing of the teeth
can start as soon as there
are teeth in the mouth.
Because of the great vari-
ety of symptoms associated
with TMJ syndrome, it has
been called "the great mas-
querader." Still, it is better to
err on the side of caution.
That is why it is recommend-
ed that you or your child visit
a dentist versed, in treating
TMJ syndrome as soon as
symptoms develop.

Committee Formed to


Promulgate Plan For


Protection of Chipola

Aiming at Stormwater Runoff Exotic
Weed Control, and Other Pollutants


Taking a page out of Port St.
Joe's book last week, a Chipola
River planning committee was
formed last Thursday in an initial
meeting held at Chipola Junior
-. College in Marianna.
Representatives from ;every
county the Chipola River runs
through were present at the first
and organization meeting, which
was chaired by Gary Shaffer of
the Department of Environmental
Protection.
The purpose of the committee
is to resolve a plan for protection
of the Chipola and its watershed.
The river which slices through
Jackson, Calhoun and Gulf
Counties before flowing into the
Apalachicola River in Gulf

County-after it balloons out to
form the Dead Lakes in the north-
ern portion of the county-is in
danger of becoming polluted
through a various number of
sources.
GUIDED BY DEP
The state's DEP, through its
decision to become a more friend-
ly protection agency, has taken
the lead to form a local commit-
S tee-much like the one formed for
devising a plan for protecting St.
Joseph Bay-in order to allow lo-
cal interests to come up with a
plan for protecting the stream
from'the mis-use by people who,
4 live, work and .play along its
shores.
i the The river has been described.
evel- as a pristine, free-flowing river
anti- stream, worthy of protection from
Post being spoiled by man.
Speakers for the initial meet-
ing of the fledgling committee
were;

Team, Panama City.

the son, St. Joe Bay Committee, Port

urse? '' ADVICE GIVEN ON HELPS
acci- All of the speakers talked
fines. about about what steps the group
life of should: take-in ,order to become
ou. an effective oganizatlon with a vi-


able agenda. They also described
the sources available to them for
information derived from studies
and funds to do what they agreed
upon as things which needed do-
ing in order to apply a protection
program.
After the speakers' remarks
were given, the members present
drew up a menu of things to pur-
sue in future meetings. Their
number one desire for action was
land acquisition. Close on its
heels was the subject of exotic
species control. Exotic weeds are
beginning to be a problem in the
river and the Dead Lakes.
From there, the subjects
graduated to litter control, water
and sewer, water run-off, agricul-
tural waste, traffic on the river,
etc.
Present at the organization
meeting from Gulf County were,
Doug Birmingham and Ralph,
Rish, representing the County
Commission, David Harrelson,
representing St. Joseph Land and
Development Company, Dr. Rob-
ert King and Wesley R. Ramsey.

License/Vehicle
Inspections Set
The Florida Highway Patrol
will be conducting inspection
checkpoints during the week of
April 11 thru 17 on SR-69 near
CR-274, on CR-22 near CR-22A,
and on SR-71 near Chipola
Street.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers' will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles operated with defects such as
bad brakes, worn tires and defec-
tive lighting equipment. In addi-
tion, attention will be directed to
drivers who would violate the dri-
ver license laws of Florida.
The patrol has found these
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equipment
and driver license laws of Florida
ensuring the protection of all
motorists.

For the aged especially, walk-
ing Is Ideal exercise for maintaining
overall health-and for keeping the
feet in good working condition. But
many elderly people who should be
able to do so don't follow this prac-
tice. Some have gradually reduced
all types of physical activity. Some
refrain from walking because they
have foot problems which they
accept as something that can't be
changed.
Many of these problems origi-
nate or worsen because of neglect
or lack of proper personal foot
care.


'f


If elderly
members of '
your family are
giving up on
walking be- '*
cause of foot problems, make an
appointment with the podiatrist
for examination. It might make a
difference in their mobility and
help produce a happier, more

Kicking Butts for Second Year


Teenagers Join Millions Who're Trying to Quit Habit


Every day more than 3,000
teenagers pick up their first ciga-
rette. Many of those teenagers will
end up with a nicotine addiction
and join the millions of smokers
who try every day to quit. The
average first time smoker is, 13
and staggering 25 percent of 17-
and 18-year olds are current
smokers.
Hoping to appeal to
teenagers, last year, The
Campaign For Tobacco-Free Kids,
with the help ofPresident Clinton,
held the first Kick Butts Day in
response to the growing number
of child and teenage smokers.
The second annual Kick
Butts Day will be held Thursday,
April 10. This national event
exposes children and adults to
the truth about the dangerous
effects 6f tobacco products, and
the alluring ads which are used
by tobacco companies to ensure a
new generation of smokers.
An estimated 419,000
Americans die each year from the
effects of cigarette smoking. On
April 10, the American Lung
Association of Florida-Northwest
Region would like to urge adults
to speak frankly to their children
about the hazards of cigarette
smoking and to set the example
and become tobacco free for Kick
Butts Day. For more information

Sarah Grimes is the "Student
of the Week"
Debbie Baxley chose the 12-
year-old daughter of Lynn and
Daniel Grimes as the -Student of
the Week". Sarah likes to do
things with her friends and when
she grows up, she would like to be
a teacher. As she puts it, "So I can
educate other people than
myself."
Her favorites are: TV show,
"Home Improvement"; color, blue;
and song, "I Believe I Can Fly". If
she could visit anywhere in the
world, it would be France. Sarah
says that she is looking forward to
graduation, but we will hate to see
her go. She will receive a free
pizza from P.J.'s Restaurant and
Pizza Kitchen. We wish her best
wishes and congratulations.
Winners Announced in Pepsi
School Caps
The Pepsi school cap
fundraiser was a huge success
this year for WES. Buffalo Rock
Pepsi will donate $0.05 to our
school for.every blue cap we col-,
lected. Renee Forehand's class
was in charge of collecting and
counting the blue caps for the
entire school.
After all the caps, were count-
ed, our school's total came to
almost 19,000 caps. This means
that Pepsi will donate almost
$950.00 to our school. Although
it has not been decided how this
money will be used, some possi-
bilities include updating the
sound equipment .on stage or
updating the playground.
The school had a competition
to see which class could collect
the most caps. Congratulations to
the winning classes, They are:
*Grades K-2-
Doris Jean Whitten-1,469 caps
*Grades 3-4-
Bill Carr-2,468 caps
*Grades 5-6-
Becky Birmingham -1,043 caps
Each of these classes will be
awarded a pizza party for collect-
ing the most caps for their grade.
Although the cap collecting is over
for this year, we encourage every-
one to save any blue caps you
may still have for next year. This
is such a great fund-raiser, and
we plan to continue this for years
to come.
New Way To Send.Notes To
Teachers!
Karen Minger had an inter-
esting note sent to her. She got an
e-mail from third grader, Michael
Weeks. Mrs. Minger wanted to
share it with you. It said ...
"Dear Mrs. Minger, How are
you doing? I hope you are doing
fine. I am. You know those book-


marks I bought. I gave one to every
one in my family. Bye. Michael
Weeks.
Technology is everywhere,
isn't it?
Matthew Miller's Spring
Break, a Second Grader
"I have enjoyed Spring Break
in Washington, D.C. with my par-
ents. I rode the subway for the
first time and it was fun. I got to
see the White House too. It was
big, big, big, and white like snow.
We went to the Smithsonian Air
and Space Museum and saw R2-
D2 from the Star Wars movies,
and lots of airplanes. At the
Smithsonian Natural History we
saw dinosaur bones, the Hope
Diamond and fish. We went up
into the Washington Monument.
We also went inside the U.S.
Capitol and it was very big.
Finally, I rode in a taxi for the first
time. I loved, Washington. D.C.
very much."
Sounds like Matthew had a
great vacation.

tests this week, the last of many
tests this year. I know it is time
consuming, but actually students
learn from taking tests, so it is
certainly not a waste of time. The
results that come back are used
in numerous ways that are help-
ful in planning or.adjusting pro-
grams, and also for student place-
ment in some programs.
Plans are underway for sum-
mer school this year, but at this
time they are incomplete. It does
appear that high school needs will
be reduced somewhat, but middle
school numbers may maintain
their usual levels.
I hope everyone had an enjoy-
able holiday. My family travelled
by car to Corpus Christi, Texas
for a family wedding. We had a
great trip and a great time, but it
.was almost like visiting a foreign
country. All of that portion of
Texas is an extension of Mexico,
just like Hawaii is almost an
extension of Japan. I point it out
only to show the great diversity
That exists in our country. Similar
"situations exist in many areas--
it's amazing that we have been
Sable to blend into one people,
especially since most ethnic
groups now appear to want to
preserve their culture as opposed
to blending into one. The term
"American" is now usually preced-
ed by the country of origin's
name. Of course, they want all the
benefits of being simply "an
American" while wanting to retain'
their other identity.
Have a great weekly

We talk a lot about


being in shape. Diet and exercise' keeps
healthy. We need to test our spiritual life as well
as our physical life. To keep our spiritual gifts
alive they need to be used. Prayer should be
used daily, and at meal time. Charity should be
dispensed regularly. Honesty is a basic ingredi-
ent of every Christian's life.
Many opportunities come that we can be
tested as Christians. The real world has many
problems, and every problem is an opportunity
to apply a Christian solution. There is a time for
restraint, and a time for action. Both situations
prove and test the Christian life.

ter flowering. Once they're estab-
lished, these lilies need only min-
mum care.
The lilies grow best on a well
drained soil with good aeration
and good water holding capacity.
Sandy soils usually provide the
necessary aeration, but they don't
hold water very well. On the other
hand, clay soils have good water
holding properties, but they don't
provide the aeration lilies ,need.
,:So, if your soil is. sandy, you need
to add two to four inches of peat
moss and work it in to a depth of


six to eight inches. If your soil
has a great deal of clay in it, you
might want to add about an inch
of perlite or similar material to in-
crease aeration.
Prior to planting,. the bed
should be fertilized with an 8-8-8
mixture, at the rate of two and a
half pounds per 100 square feet.
An inch or so of water should be
,applied once or twice a week until
Sthe plants are well established.
Twice each year, refertilize with
the same 8-8-8 mixture, at the
rate of two and a half pounds per
100 square feet.
Due to an extensive root sys-
tem, daylilies can survive dry
Conditions quite well. But, during
periods of prolonged drought,
you'll need to apply water to a
depth of 12 inches to moisten the
soil. Also, daylilies planted in full
sun will need more watering than
those planted in shaded areas.
Daylilies have a tendency to
become crowded, and when this
happens, flower production is re-
duced. If crowding occurs, you'll
need to divide the plants by dig-
ging them up and severing the
. rhisome between the fans of
leaves with a sharp knife. Cut the
leaves back to within four to six
,"inches of the crown and replant
Sthe divisions.

Dear Counselor:


I have an eleven year old
daughter that has been fat all of
her life. Other children are mean
and cruel to her. They call her lard
butt, fatso, blubber body, you
name it! Many days she gets off of
the school bus in tears. I'm at a
loss. What do I do?
Signed,
Need a House Call
from Weight Watchers!
Dear Need a House Call:
Have you had your daughter
thoroughly checked out by a pedi-
atrician or family physician? You
may find that your daughter's
weight is a medical difficulty and
has little to do with food con-
sumption or exercise.
After this has been ruled out,
you may want to seek the advice
of a certified nutritionist; After
reviewing different information
that you and your daughter'can
provide, a nutritionist will be able
to draw conclusions and make
recommendations to the both of
youl
Putting a child who is still
growing on a diet program can be
very dangerous! Research indi-
cates that most diets don't work
and often result in more weight
gain and the potential of future
eating disorders, like anorexia or
bulimia. With the right informa-
tion, your daughter will learn to
make positive, healthy food choic-
es when she is ready. In the
meantime, remind her that she is


ia valuable individual who is wor-
thy of love regardless of her
weight!
S You might also consider mak-
ing weight control funl Take your
daughter grocery shopping with
you and have her help decipher
these new food labels. You may
,,also want to start walking, riding
bikes, or doing any other moving
activities with her. This could turn
out to be a wonderful opportunity
for some quality time together!
Finally, remember you can
never "dish out" too much self-
esteeml" Help your daughter to
"feel good about herself', and her
Weight control efforts will progress
moree naturally...-
Effective weight management
involves appropriate behavioral
Habits and a positive, attitude. If
i, you would 'like additional help;
please call the,guidance clinic. We
offer individual and group weight
control counseling which can fur-
ther assist you and your daugh-
ter.

annual hassle of purchasing
licenses and invest in conserva-
tion programs have the choice of
purchasing lifetime or five-year
licenses.
The licenses were first made
available to Floridians in 1990 fol-
lowing legislative approval. The
licenses are a pretty good deal,"
says Susan Wood, Bureau Chief
of Licensing and Permitting for
the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.
"The lifetime licenses are a
one-time purchase and allow the
holder to be exempt from any
future price increases in the
licenses covered," says Wood.
"They also exempt the license
holder from additional licenses or
permits that might be enacted in
the future.
"The money for the licenses is
put into an endowment fund and
the principal is not touched.
When the license holder turns 16
years of age, the interest is trans-
ferred into the Commission's
State Game Trust Fund and avail-
able for all types of conservation
programs."
License costs are:
SLifetime Licenses-
0-4 Yrs. 5-12 Yrs. 13+ Yrs.

Wood said anyone wanting to
