Florida Public Service Commission Gives Panhandle A
New Area Code Number Taking Effect Monday June 23rd


It has been quite a while since telephones
of the St. Joseph Telephone & Telegraph Com-
pany summoned anyone to the phone with a
shrill ring, ativated by a real live female opera-
tor. It has been almost as long since phones in
Port St. 'Joe were identified with a single, dou-
ble or triple digit number. The numbers didn't
go above the triple, digit identification simply
because there wasn't that many telephone sets
in operation.
Now, just a short while later [it seems] the
phone company says it is running out of num-
bers by which to identify the individual sets.
Florida telephone companies say that the
state's 904 area code number is rapidly run-
ning out of available numbers to give all sets an
individual identification. Population growth and.
increased demand for 'new telephone lines
needed for computer modems, fax machines,
pagers and wireless phones has caused the
need for the Florida Public Service Commission
to split the 904 area code.
Effective June 23, 'of this year [and
month] the new area code for the 18
counties in, Florida's Panhandle will be 850.
To help you become familiar with the new


area code, a transition, or permissive dialing
period will last from June 23, 1997, to
March 23, 1998, when dialing the new area
code will become mandatory. During this
transition period, a caller may dial either
area code and the call will go through.
If our area code is changing to 850-and all
of Gulf County is changing-you should update
your checks, stationery, name labels,, and any
other printed materials that include your area
code. You should also notify friends, relatives,
and others who need to know---especially 'th6se
outside the new 850 area, in other states or
other countries--that your area code is chang-
ing.
SENDS OUT NOTICES
The phone company has sent out notices of
the change becoming effective. These were en-
closed in the service bills for the month of
June.
The area to be changed includes all'the
Panhandle to the eastern county line of Madi-
son and Taylor counties. The old 904 area code
number that we once had is being assigned to
the Jacksonville area, stretching from the 850
area eastward and descending in the state to


the ,Volusia county area [see map adjoining this
article].
Nothing will be changed except the area
code number.
No long distance rates will be affected by
the change.
You should .reprogram any telecommuni-
cations equipment and services currently pro-
grammed to operate on the 904 number. These
-include speed calling, call forwarding, cellular
phones, security systems, computer modems
and fax machines.
A customer's number will not be affected;
only the area code will change.. d
If callers forget to use the 850 area code


after mandatory dialing begins on March 23,
1998, they will hear a recorded message in-
structing them to redial using the new area
code.
The 911 emergency number will not be af-
fected.
The area code number change is designed
to take care of the growing use of phone lines.
but the Florida Public. Service Commission
thinks the area code will need to be broken
down even further by the middle of the first
decade in the new century.
So, don't get too attached to your new area
code number. Chances are that it will be
changing again in just a few years.

Clean Up!

NOW THAT THE MAIN street of Port St. Joe is going to lodk
crisp and clean, emitting an air of "a place for everything and
everything in its place", It's an opportune time to spiff up the re-
mainder of the city too. Especially those portions of the city
which are more visible to home folks and visitors alike.
We already have a head start on cleaning up. our environs.
They are fairly clean already. They're just beginning to look a lit-
tle seedy around the edges. The construction going on downtown
has given downtown a good excuse to sort of let itself go for the
duration of the construction.
We don't want this to gt to be a habit.
A VISITOR'S FIRST GLIMPSE of our housekeeping habits
are the back doors of our business section. This area, also, has
been 'let go' while we were using them as primary entrances to
our business section. They need straightening up and placing in
order once again.
The rear end of our business houses, unfortunately, are
most visible to the eye of visitors and make a lasting first im-
pression of our city, even before we get to show them our good
side. Some may not even stop and explore the good sections, if
the first thing they see is a trashy facade.
OUR CITY COMMISSION IS launching itself on a campaign
which stresses cleaning up. It has, for many years, stressed
cleaning up in the spring or early summer, but more emphasis
'is being placed on cleaning up this year because of certain
changes anticipated to be made in the way of doing things; mak-
ing the property owner more responsible for his own surround-
ings. Cleaning up is sure to evolve, into more of a do-it-yourself
project in the near future so we had just as well dig in and get
accustomed to keeping our own surroundings clean.
There is no better tinie than the present to get started on
this project. The city will give all the help it can, but we're going
to have to initiate the process individually if it's going to be suc-
cessful.
Come on, let's get busy right away!



No Agreement
TIMOTHY MCVEIGH RECEIVED the death penalty for his
act of terrorism in Oklahoma City nearly two years ago. If we
ever needed a.deith penalty; that was the time. There were actu-
ally those who thought the penalty was 'too harsh to enforce,
even in this instance, however.
Even McVeigh's defense attorneys didn't bother to use the
"he didn't do it" defense. They just concentrated on a "Just keep
him alive" defense, all to no avail. The usual hubbub by the do-
gooders didn't even materialize, as bad as they must have want-
ed.
There was not much doubt no. not any doubt by hardly
anyone that McVeigh planned and carried out his inhumane act
of terrorism against America's heartland, taking the lives of 168
unsuspecting persons at the time.
Even McVeigh's friends and.acquaintances believed he actu-
ally did it. .. :
THERE WAS HARDLY NO testimony in his favor during the
sentencing portion of the trial, except from his parents. Even his
sister felt he was guilty. His patents pleaded for his life, as par-
ents who love their kids, regardless of how they turn out, are ex-
pected to do.
We imagine the elder Mr. and Mrs. McVeigh have spent
many sleepless nights agonizing over their son, wondering where
he went wrong. Testimony was given about his being an average
happy-go-lucky child with normal interests. Testimony was giv-
en about his accomplishments as a soldier who liked what he
was doing and interested in defending his nation.
THE PRESIDING JUDGE'S REMARKS at the end of his'
reading Timothy McVeigh's death sentence must have caused a
few to grit their teeth. Here they are, turning every stone to re-
move any vestige of God. the Bible, or the Christian religion from
public utterance with the .same breath as any reference to gov-
ernment activities; only to have the judge reiterate this nation's
involvement with the Christian religion. ; '
The judge gave the pronouncement in words distinct and
clear, "May God have mercy on the United States of America, .
May God have mercy on your soul!"
God has already blessed the United States :of America by
keeping this act as the single worst act of terrorism to visit our
shores..


BUNKER DROWN WITH RE BY KESLEY COLBERT



Names I Have Known


I don't rightly remember when
it dawned on me that Kesley was-
n't exactly a household name. I
suspect Bobby Brewer, back in
Miss Katie's kindergarten class,
asking almost daily, "What is a
Kesley anyway?" set me to think-
ing on it. 'Course, Miss Katie call-
ing me Keeesleey, Kesler, Chesley,
Kelsey sort of reinforced my ten-
der mind ..... I could have prob-
lems with this over the years.
By the first grade the kids
had it figured out, they knew it
was Kesley. They'd give me a hard
time at times, but shoot, by then
my name was old hat to them.
You'd be amazed at how adapt-
able, understanding, forgiving,
Intelligent, arid easy to get along
with, the whole lot of us were as
six year olds. It was the, grown-
ups that seemed to have the
hangups.


The first day of the first grade
was 'a portent of first days" to
come for a boy named Kesley .

Miss Carolyn (1 had easily
picked up her correct pronuncia-
tion from the spelling on the
chalkboard and hearing her say it
one time) was plowing down "the
roll" the first .morning, "Bobby
Brewer."
-Here."
"Jimmy Carter."
"Here."
Pause ..more pause. ..
"Kel. .:. Keessle ......" By
now, of course, the whole class is
rolling in the, aisles. I said they
were understanding, forgiving,
etc.. but they were, not above a
good laUgh at my expense. "Kles .
... .Wess.. ... are you Leon's lit-
tle brother?"'
1atsl Not only could she not
"get close to my name", but I'm
gonna be held accountable for
everything Leon did to her five'
years ago :
Second grade it was Miss


Dorothy. but the first day conver-
sation was the same. *Cept. she
threw in that part about not
climbing the bookcases like Leon
or tossing erasers out the window
at the unsuspecting third graders.
"I'm going to keep an eye on you.-
.There was a definite pattern
developing. . .
It was also about this time.
Charlotte Melton asked in her
usual tender and sensitive style,
".Where'd you get such a name?"
"My grandfather was named
Kesley."
"Was he weird or something?"
No, he wasn't. I didn't know.
much at age seven, but I had fig-
ured out by then that Pa was one
of the good guys. He'd bend down
to "where you were" so you could
talk "man to man". He listened
to youl Imagine that! And he
always had a good word fori- you.
He never raised his voice or talked
like you were just a little boy. And
he knew I was different from
Leon!
He might'a had a weird name-


but there was nothing wrong with
Pa. The very fact that Mom named
me after him kept me from saying
much about my moniker to any-
body.
I suffered some in silence.
And, of course, there were
those that tried to console me .

"Kesley, I like your name. I
think it's cool."
"Thanks, Graylene."
"Yeah, Kes, it's a beautiful
name."
"Aw, LaRenda, you're so
kind.".
Bobby Brewer tried to help
out, -What's your "other" name.
Maybe we could call you by that.
"Heber Kesley."

tive slant on near bout anything.

ETAOIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


which have been strategically lo-
cated, so my eyes weren't on the
sidewalk for the entire time.
It was in such a manner that
I was making my way back the of-
fice, after the meeting was over,
when suddenly my attention was
diverted b a strange sight which:
lay before me. ,

I SAW A LINE of hickles,
dimes, pennies and other coins
stretched out before me, all tie
way down the sidewalk.
My first inclination was to
pick them up before I remem-
bered I had better not for fear of
toppling over flat of my face there


1


all this discussion to the forefront
is something which happened to
me last Thursday.
I had hobbled off down the
street to attend the Rotary Club
imeetitng. as has been my habit
every Thursday for the past 43
years. I was admiring the chang-
'e. which already have occurred
tn Reid, as I ambled along the
. sidewalk.
I watch where I am stepping
these days, so my eyes were di-
verted to the sidewalk., Every once
th a while-with every few steps
or so-I would pause and look at
the ti-ees which have been plant-
ed on the streets, or the benches


on the sidewalk. There has been
a time when I would have risked
it.
The first thing I thought of,
was, who had a hole in their
'pants pocket?
They were leaving a trail of
where they had walked like some-
one In the woods marking the
trail he had come, iri oi-der to find
his way back.;
,A fev years back,. I Would
have picked them up. When I was
akid, I Surely would have picked
the coits up. Those coins would
have paid my way into the mo-
vies, bought me a candy bar or a
bag of popcorn and a cold drink. I
wouldn't ,have let those coins
which I saw on the sidewalk, go
to waste.

A FIND SUCHt as that
woUldn't come along when I need-
ed it. It had to wait until I had as
much, at least,, in my pocket as I
saw lying on the sidewalk.
I am proud to say -I didn't


heed the change I saw on the
sidewalk, so I left it for the next
person to come along. He/she
might truly heed it.
I was proud of myself for re-
sisting the urge to pick up those
bright, shiny coins which seemed
to be marking out a trail on the
sidewalk.
I thought, for an instant, that
the construction contractor work-
ing on the street was sort of eas-
ing the pain of inconvenience, but
then I thought: nah, it's not
enough for that!
Those coins leading one in 'a
straight line down the sidewalk
will remain one of life's great mys-
teries. Where did they come
from? What was their purpose?
I REMEMBER ONE time, a
couple of years ago, when I was
still taking my mile-long walks. I
was walking around the perime-
ter of the park in front of my
home. It was right after a wind-
storm and things were blown top-
sy-turvy along the side of the


road.
I was making my-way up the
street when, suddenly, I glanced
over on the shoulder and saw a
crisp $206.00 bill lying there.
I looked around for.some sign
of who could have dropped it. I
looked up and down the street
and nobody was in sight.
I stooped over and picked up
that $20.00 bill and .placed it in
'my pocket. No thoughts of wheth-
er or not I might lose my balance
and tumble. over, on my face. I
had an incentive o pick up that
lost bill $20.00 worth of in-
centivel
I have waked that route hun-
dreds of times since that time
and never saw a thing except an
occasional empty beer can or soft
drink bottle. Believe me, I looked,
even might have strained my eyes
a bit.
I've seen plenty of horseshoe
crabs washed up on shore by
storms, since, but never another
$20.00.

2002 through 2019. In order to
float those bonds, several revenue
items were pledged against the
bonds (mostly franchise fees and
utility taxes.
NEED BID '
Greg Johnson pointed out
during his suggestion to bid the
project that once 'a concrete price
is received, the city would have
firm figures to set dowrl with
investors or private enterprise and
logically discuss proposals.
"Till we find out how much it
(the marina) will cost, we can't' do
anything," said Commissioner
Charlie Norton as he added his
support to the bid motion.
Since talk of the city marina
began nearly three years ago, the
board has unanimously support-
ed the project. It was considered
to be a large piece of the puzzle for
the Chamber of 'Commerce's
Vision Plan for Port St. Joe and
the surrounding areas and' has.
repeatedly been praised by, corn-.
missioners, business leaders', and
advisers as having the potential to
have a major positive impact on
the, local economy.
ENTIRE BOARD ON RECORD
All five current board, mem-,
bers have gone on, record in sup-
port of the project during inter- ,:
views with The Star, though :some .
have indicated they feeLany fur-
ther development shouldn't be
done with city dollars.
It was the consensus of the
board, the marina committee and
most present at the meeting that
the extra time would provide an
opportunity to seek investors and
further investigate financing
options. -

idea during the summer months
but it had been his working expe-
rience that climate conditions and
daylight presented a problem dur-
ing the winter.
Commissioner Traylor moved
that union negotiator Larry Wells
review the idea and come back to
the board with his recomnmenda-
tion.'The motion passed 4-1, with
Stanley objecting.
OTHER ITEMS DISCUSSED
eCommissioner Stanley asked
board attorney Tim McFarland to
classify how the Sunshine Law
pertains to using fax machines for
correspondence. McFarland .said
wrTitten memorandums were o.k.,
even stating an opinion is fine.
The only violation of the Sunshine

to ith, Editor "


Now Is The Time

Dear Editor:
Education is an oft-discussed
'issue in Florida and throughout
America. Twenty-seven million
American .adults are. functionally
:.,illiterate. You may assume that,
because you can"fread this, illiter-
acy is no problem fdr you. But
illiteracy hurts us all.
Illiteracy lowers business pro-
ductivity. Illiterates may not be
able to learn enough to know the
difference between low. and high
'quality. During, training, every-
thing must be explained orally to
illiterates. These costs are passed
along to the consumers-us.
Illiterate workers are prone to
have accidents because they can-
not read. Literate people can be
hurt by the accidents. Illiterates
who cause accidents are more
likely to' draw worker's compensa-
tion and other insurance benefits,
sometimes involving lawsuits.
Insurance rates are based on
averages, and ultimately we all
pay higher insurance because of
,accidents resulting from illiteracy.
Illiteracy drives people into
low-paying jobs,, unemployment,
even welfare. Thus, illiteracy
weakens the tax base while
increasing the benefits paid. The
federal debt, over $5 trillion, has
partly arisen from unproductive
effects rooted in illiteracy. The
federal debt hurts each of us
when we borrow money and face
high interest rates.
In turn, the federal debt wors-


projects in the direction of the
theme and style currently being
developed through downtown
revitalization programs were also
discussed by the board.
The commission recognized
that currently the board could
only make recommendations to
voluntarily be adhered to. City .,
ordinances to put some teeth..into-4,
construction guidelines may be
considered in the not too distant
future.
Commissioner Charles
Tharpe and Bill Wood also recom-
mended turning city variance
requests over to the county build-
ing department and instruct them
to follow city codes, rather than
addressing them before the
boa rd.
Merchant Complaints
Mayor Johnny Linton brought
up several .complaints aired by
the downtown merchants. Bikes,
rollerblades and skateboards on
the sidewalks and. in some cases,
even inside merchant's stores, are
creating a dangerous situation.
Linton said.
Several cases where doors


To Stop Illiteracy
ens the illiteracy problem because
the government cannot fund pro-
grams to attack illiteracy when so
much is going into welfare and
other needs resulting from illiter-
acy. .
Companies leave iAmerica to
go where the, workers can read.
The jobs go too. Revenues decline
*while the government's bills con-.
tinue. Companies are especially
reluctant to invest jobs, in areas
where illiteracy and resulting
problems are ubiquitous.
Now is the time to stop illiter-
acy. The Barbara Bush Foun-
dation' for Family Literacy,
Laubach Literacy Action, Literacy

worthy programs -deserve our,
help. Inquire about literacy pro-
grams'at your local library. We are
all paying for illiteracy.

Interested In Boys and Girls Club in Port St. Joe?


by GarryPerrin
When I first started this arti-
cle almost a week ago, I was un-
der the impression that Port St.
Joe has little to offer the kids in
our community. Since then, what
I've found out is quite different.
I'm speaking on a personal level.
My own kids this past couple of
weeks have been attending the
Stac House and the summer rec
program at PSJ Elementary. They
went to our Tuesday evening Op-
timist- Club meeting and brought
some of their friends. Then to-
ward the end of the week they got
to go for a two day trip with our
church youth group. Some of
their' friends were invited to go
with them. I've registered them
for Summer Promise which is an
all day program that starts Mon-


day. Hey now, I think they have it
great here in Port St. Joel Some-
times I wish I was a kid again!
Well today is Father's Day.
My wife and the kids treated me
to breakfast, cards and some
gifts. I am reminded how blessed
I am in both departments family
and community.
At our weekly meeting this
past Tuesday, Paul Mosca, Exec-
utive Director of the Boys and
Girls Clubs in Bay County, spoke
about the four clubs there. Each
facility works to meet the needs of
kids and parents. One is a three
bedroom apartment in a housing
project. One has a gym. There are
playing fields, basketball and flag
football leagues. They have paid
staffs, after school care programs
and all day summer programs


and field trips. They utilize quiet
times for study, computers,
trained volunteers who offer edu-
cational programs. There is in-
door rec equipment similar to
what the Stac House has.'
HUD, United Way, and Coca-
Cola are three major sponsors of
Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
There are immediate funds avail-
able to the Florida Panhandle
area from the United Way for set-
ting up a club in a place like Port
St. Joe
Only thing is, does this area
need a Boys! and Girls Club? As I
said, when ;I started this article
earlier, I thought about what PSJ
has to offer aour kids. What came
to mind was; the parking lot at the
Junior Store. Then later in the


week, The Star came out with an
article about the new director of
the washington Improvement
Group. And below that was an ar-
ticle about the Division of Juve-
nile Justice. These two groups
have in common the interest of
our youth and the community as
a whole.
The question remains, is
there, a need? There are those
time, particularly during the
school year, that for a lot of kids,
there is nothing. And there are
those kids who could benefit
greatly, possibly year round.
What do you think? Should
we work together to plug into the
Boys and Girls Clubs of America?
Leave us a message at the Opti-,
:mist Club phoneline at 229-9341.

Many Home Remedies May


Poisoning accidents -can hap-
peti to anydned at anytime. While
many of these can be prevented
by poison proofing the home and.
increasing awareness to these oc-
currences, accidents still happen.
The response' to these situations
can be determined if the outcome
is made better or worse. Utilizing
home remedies may not help and
in some situations can cause
:more harm and Intensify the ef-
fects of the exposure.
While. health care costs con-
tinue to rise, a quick "fix" at
home oftentimes is the choice
over a hospital visit. The Florida
Poison Information Center/
Jacksonville encourages families
to call the poison center first be-
fore attempting any treatment at
home. The center is available 24.
hours a day, seven days a week
and can provide the most uip-to-
date treatment for poison expo-
sures. Seventy percent of expo-
sures can be managed safely at
home with the Intervention of a
poison Information center. This
free service is staffed with nurses
-and pharmacists who have spe-
cialized training and certification
In poison management. These
health care professionals will as-
sess the situation and determine
whether the person can be safely
treated at home or if further eval-
uation; by a physician lIs neces-
sary.
The following list' contains
common home remedies and mis-
conceptions about treating poison
exposures:
oBee or wasp stings. Using to-
bacco to alleviate the pain, espe-
cially on a child, may induce nic-
otine poisoning as the nicotine in
tobacco is absorbed through the
skin. Nicotine is a potent drug
which can cause a change in
heart rate, nausea, vomiting, and
excessive sleepiness.
S: wallowed poisons. Giving
bread, milk, or burnt toast for an
ingestion is not an antidote.
These home remedies can actual-
ly cause more damage.
*Inducing vomiting. Using
salt water is very dangerous. Salt
water can significantly increase
.the body's sodium level causing
significant chemical Imbalance,
nausea, vomiting, headache, sei-
zures, coma, and even death.
Drinking .raw egg whites or yokes
can lead to salmonella poisoning.
Sometimes vomiting is caused by
the substance swallowed. This is
often is a sign of poisoning.
*Neutralizing an acid or a
base. Using an acid to neutralize
an alkali substance (or vice versa)
is not recommended. This can
cause a chemical reaction pro-
ducing heat and more serious ih-
Jjury. '
*Snake bites. "Cutting and


sucking"-out the venom Is dan-
gerous, ineffective, and disfigur-
ing if not done correctly. Do not
use a tourniquet or apply ice to
the snake bite. Seek medical at-
tention at a hospital immediately.
If you cannot drive, call 911 fori
an ambulance.
*Ticks. Rubbing the tick with
petroleum'jelly: or nail polish be-
fore removing it will cause the
tick to regurgitate into the wound
before it dies. This can increase
your exposure to any diseases the"
tick may carry. Call the poison
center for instructions for remov-,
ing ticks.
*Lice. Using any product oth-
Ser than a lice shampoo is" ex-;
tremely dangerous. Kerosene,
gasoline, or yard chemicals' can
cause severe skin reactions and
possible -burns. Absorption of
these chemicals through the skin
can cause nervous system dam-'",
age.
*Eye exposures. Rinsing the(
eye with any product other than,%
watermay be dangerous and pos-'
sibly ineffective. Eve drops should
not be used unless instructed so
by a physician because the dam-
age may be intensified. The poi-
son center recommends flushing,
the eye with water;, continually;.-
for 15 minutes' Many products
contain corrosives or .strong Irri-
tants. An eye examination is usu-
ally necessary to check for cort,'
neal damage with any of these'
substances.
*Product labels. Do. not follow
first aid Instructions on product
labels. Most are outdated and 10-t
accurate. The poison center can
provide up-to-date treatment ad-
vice for thousands of products:
based on the exposure to the
product.
For any exposure or question
call the poison center toll free at

ment.

Grass Grows Like Gangbusters During


Early Summer Months of June and July

Frequent Mowing, Pest Control, All Part of the Seasonal Problems


June and July are months
when grass is growing at its full
potential. Mowing is not only a
chore but a necessary mainte-
nance practice. To comply with
our conservation effort to reduce
the number of bagged clippings
going to landfills by letting grass
clippings lay in place, it may be
necessary to mow as frequently as
every five (5) days. The smaller the
clippings, the more easily they fil-,
ter back into the lawn and
become unnoticeable.
These are also months to
watch for pests. When an area in,
the lawn begins to yellow, react
Don't just ignore it! Usually the
problem is either one of an insect
of a disease. A simple diagnostic
test is to mix two. (2) tablespoons
of any soap into two (2) gallons of
water (but don't mix so vigorously
-as to form suds) and then pour.
this over two (2) square feet of
grass right at the edge of where
yellow turns to green.
Wait a few minutes. If an-
insect is involved with the prob-
lem, they'll soon climb to the top
of the grass to get, away from the


soap. Chinch. bugs, mole crickets
and caterpillars are the pests for
which to look. If any of those
come up, treat with an insecti-
cide. Check with local garden cen-


ters or your County Extension
Service for what they have that
would work (Diazinon and
Dursban are commonly used).
If no insect is observed, the
yellowing is due to something else
and an insecticide tvill not help. It
could be burn from using:a weed
killer or a problem with water (too
much or too little) but to play it
safe, spray for diseases. Daconil
is a commonly.used fungicide that
controls a large, number of dis-
eases on turf.
When spraying witl an insec-
ticide or fungicide don't treat the
whole yard! Help reduce needless


chemical application to our envi-
ronment. Treat only the affected
area and a 10 foot border around
it. Mow a day or two before treat-
ing and don't wash the product in


unless label directions tell you to
do so. A second treatment in 10-
14 days is required for most prod-
ucts.
With summer in full swing,
many ask when is the next fertil-
izer application. In an effort to
reduce the amount of chemical
applied, current recommenda-
tions are to either low analysis
fertilizers (such as 10-10-10 or
15-0-15 at low rates) or do not,
fertilize at all in the summer.
Studies have shown that
grasses such as St. Augustine
and bahia can go the entire sum-,,
mer with no fertilizer if clippings


are allowed to fall back to contin-
ue providing slow release dutri-
tion to the grass. It has also been
demonstrated by eliminating
those high analysis fertilizers in'
the summer, which produce. a
"bright green" appearance pests,
such as grey leaf spot, chinch
bugs and lawn caterpillars, can,
, be reduced.
Mole crickets- have laid their
eggs now and those eggs will soon
be hatching. If there was.a prob-
lem with these insects in the lawn
this last year, now is the time to.
try to reduce their number by.
killing those young hatchlings
before they become adults.
To do this, apply a granular
application of a product oftanol.
Water it in immediately (within a
half hour of applyingJ .and this
should stay in the soil for the next
two to three months, killing all'
young crickets as they hatch.
Note that in the 'past this
treatment was recommended for
May. Studies have shown that the
hatch-ouit cycles" for this area are
a little later than once thought. It
is, therefore, suggested that the
most effective application period
for the residual product oftanol is
June through mid-July. Oftanol is
..nly used once ,a year for:mole
crickets and works best on those,.
that have only recently hatched.

Would your dog bite? The Hu-

mane Society of the United States
(HSUS) estimates that more than
four million dog bites are reported
to local authorities each year.
Countless more go unreported.
Dog bites range from painless
nips to fatal maulings. Children
are most often the victims. Dog
attacks are the most commonly
reported childhood public health
problem in the United States. Dog
bite victims account for up to five
percent of all eriergency room
visits. "
You may feel confident that
your dog won't add to these sta-
tistics, and it is probably true
that your trusty companion will
never seriously harm anyone.

Even a nip on the leg is unaccept-
able beh'ior for a-family dog..
Here are three suggestions to
help take the bite out of your
dog:
*Teach your dog appropriate
behavior. Don't play aggressive,
,games with your dog such as
wrestling, tug of war or siccing
your dog on another person. It's
essential that your dog recognizes
members of your family as domi-
.nant figures not to be challenged.
*Be a responsible pet owner.
For everyone's safety. don't allow
your dog to roam. Make your pet
a member of your family Dogs
that spend too much time in the
dog house or tied in the back
yard have a much greater chance
of developing aggressive behavior-
al problems..
*Err on the safe side., If you
don't know how your dog will
react to a new situation, be cau-
tious. If you think your dog could
panic in a crowd, leave him/her
at home. If your clog may over-,
react to visitors or delivery per-
sons. keep him/her in another
room. Help your dog become ac-
customed to a variety of situa-
tons. .

Bob Butterworth.
"A private company may place

said.' "Such tactics are designed

Boats, Water and Alcohol-Like Fast


Cars and Alcohol-Just Don't Mix!


There may have been a day
,when drinking 'aid boating was:
perceived by some as a good way
,to.)unwind." :
Today, however, a boat opera-
'tor under the influence of alcohol
or drugs may find themselves un-
,der arrest and facing a court date
before a judge. Boating, under the
influence is a serious offense and
carries a maximum' penalty of one
year in jail, a.$2,500 fine, and the
Offender may lose their boating
privileges.
Lt. Gary Applewhite, the Flor-
ida Game and Fresh Water Fish
.Commission's boating safety coor-
dinator in northwest Florida, said
the effects' of alcohol on the boat
operator are magnified by a com-
;:bination of being jostled on the
water all day and exposure to the
t!sun. He said wildlife officers on
boating patrol are actively search-
: ing for any vessel whose operator
,they suspect is intoxicated.
Applewhite said Florida con-
tinues to rank first nationally in
-boating accidents and fatalities,
and alcohol is thought to play a
"part in at least 50% of the fatali-
ties. In 1996, there were 59 fatali-
,..ties and 1,260 accidents and
more than $5 million in property
damage.
And that doesn't include the
civil litigation or other costs that
may result from a drunken boater
hurting or killing someone.

Dear Counselor:
I can't figure this man/
woman thing out! My last girl-
friend was a great person. She
was pretty, funny and smart.
When I first met her, I thought she
would be someone I- could date for
a while.
After a month, though, she
started talking about kids, hous-
es, marriage, etc. It seemed the
more I told her that I wasn't
ready, the ,more she tried to con-
vince me that I" was.. Finally, I
broke up with her. Now she won't
even speak to mel What can f do?
I seem to attract these kind of
women.
Signed,
Near-Goofy
Dear Goof'.
Yours is a common problem.
Without sounding sexist, I think it
can also be reasonably said, that
most women and men approach
the issue of dating and intimacy
In a somewhat different fashion.
Typically, men tend to take in
their information from their five
senses-things which are tangi-
ble. Women, however, are often
"readers"-of body language, of
certain comments, of even flirta-
tious gestures. A woman hungry
for intimacy in her life will be even
more guilty of this practice. They
might mistakenly choose to avoid
obvious evidence and prefer to
"see" things which .give them hope
that a long-term relationship is on
the way.
The decision to form a com-
- mitment is not something one
partner pursues, or "talks" the
other partner into. In a healthy
relationship, it is something that
Is a natural consequence of hav-
Ing found a special person with
whom you can relate to in a
unique way.
This sort of bonding takes
time, if done in a healthy fashion.
Lonely or "needy" individuals
never realize that time is their


I

best friend in a relationship.
While not every relationship with
longevity points to a healthy,
happy alliance, it does point to the
fact that something is working.
Many women who would
study for months before buying a
house or car, seem to forget the
need for the same sort of logic in
selecting a partner. Your' friend
might need .to question. why she
needs intimacy so deeply that she
would press for commitment from
someone she hardly knows.
Despite hpw well or often you
talked, or thought you knew one
another, time is the only way to
make a relationship solid.
Counseling with a qualified thera-
pist can help her know why she'
does the things she does, espe-
cially if she is stuck, in a "rut" of
getting into the same kind of "no-
win" relationships.
You also say you tend to,
attract these sort of women. When
a person attracts over and over
any certain "type" which consis-
tently results in broken or hurt
relationships, it is safe to say that
a problem exists.
Counseling might help you
see where you might be. perhaps
unconsciously, actually seeking
women who are "needy" or "imma-
ture" in the way they understand
adult relationships. Confidential
counseling is. available from Gulf
County Guidance. Please call if we
can.be of further help.
Good Luck,
Laura K. Rogers, B.S.W.,

ARC Expresses

Its Sympathy
Gulf Codnty ARC wishes 'to
express our deepest sympathies
to the family of L. C. Clark in their
time of sorrow. Public agencies
here in Port St. Joe such as ours
have been able tb accomplish so
much due to the many efforts of
Mr. Clark.
As a long time Board of
Directors member he supported,
guided,, directed and inspired all
of us. Mr. Clark's presence -will
surely be missed; fortunately his
actions will continue to live on in,
the hearts of those whose lives
were touch by this exceptional
man.
Mr. Clark was always an
example of honesty, generosity,
humanity and brotherhood. Mr.
Clark was never one to donate
time or energy for glory to himself;
his actions were from the heart
and touched the heart of many. .
Port St. Joe will surely miss Mr.
Clark.
May his passing serve to

vored ground turkey filling sea-

lic and, select seasonings-has a
complex piquancy that works very
well, with the other ingredients to
give this tamale pie a savory,
tempting flavor.
The topping,; made with corn
muffin mix, is a snap. This family

Seafood Recipes Featuring Favorite


Red Snapper Are Prized Among Nations

Red Snapper Are Found Off Florida's Coast In Deep Water


. Red snapper (Lutjanus
campechanus), found off Florida's
Gulf and Atlantic coasts, is one of
the best known and desired deep-
sea delicacies. Snappers are
caught in waters 60 feet to 200'
feet deep. Large electrical and
manually powered reels are used
with multiple-hook rigs. The red
snapper industry was started in
1870 in, Pensacola by an enter-
prising New Englandei.
* The red snapper has pink to
red back and upper sides, with
the lower sides and belly being
lighter in color. Adult red snap-
pers are easily distinguished from
other red-colored snappers. They
are deeper-bodied, not as stream-
lined, and have a bright red iris.
Snappers prefer irregular
hard-bottom formations of rock
and limestone covered with coral
.and sponges. They feed on a vari-
ety of bottom-dwelling crus-
taceans and small fishes. The:
growth of this species is slow;
however, ,individuals can achieve
30 pounds in weight and' three
feet in length. They attain sexual '
maturity after age two, and
spawning takes place between.
June and October.
The moist, white flesh of the
red snapper has a delicate sweet
flavor. It is sold fresh or frozen as
dressed fish, fillets, or steaks. It
can be served broiled, baked,'
steamed, poached, fried, or
grilled.
Store fresh snapper in the
refrigerator at 32-38 degrees F.-
and use in one or two days, or
freeze at 0 degrees F. and use
within six months. Thaw in refrig-
erator or under cold running
water.
