Three months ago, when Flor-
ida Coast Paper Company an-
nounted it was closing down the
Port St. Joe mill due to economic
conditions, the'length of the shut
down was described as "indefi-
nite". '
To the people 'of Port St. Joe,
this description could mean as
little as three or four months or
as 'much as forever. Since the
shut down has lasted for nearly
four months, people are begin-
ning to be more bothered about
.he meaning of that word "indefl-
rifte". '
Just when, If ever, is- the
paper mill going to resume opera-
* Uons and once. again become a
force in the economic picture of
not Just Port St. Joe, but for an
entire three' county area? When
will the staple meal once agaih
become steak as opposed to
beans?
Not So Long
As It Has Been
The word is still "indefinite"
when applied to a start up date
for the paper mill, officially. Unof-


flclally, rumors have established
that date everywhere from the
third quarter of the current year
to sometime next year. The Star
has attempted to narrow that
span down a little, but still no
definite, word is forthcoming from
management regarding a start up
date.
In talking with Ferrell Allen.
local manager of the mill, he has
adamantly stated, "Port St. Joe
people will be the first to know
when anything changes. You are
the most affected by the condi-
tions, and you deserve to be the
first to know, directly."
'We're focusing our entire at-
tention on beginning production
once again.," Allen continued. "In
addition, we're continually trying
to improve our position so that
when we do resume operations it
will tend to be more of a perma-
nent type operation as opposed to
an up-down, up-down situation."
Allen assures this newspaper
that the moment anything hap-
pens to change the current situa-
tion. it will be announced, locally.

This gathering of boats, campers and people flooded Pre- sels. The same story is expected this year with the season
snell's Fish Camp at Simmons Bayou last year at the begin- opening the first of July. St. Joseph Bay is one of only two
ning of scallop, season to hunt for the sweet mollusk mor- places in Florida where they are plentiful enough to harvest.


Scallop S
July 1 marks the opening of
scallop i. season which runs
through September 10, along the
Northwest Florida Gulf Coast.
This is a major event with thou-
sands' of people coming from all
areas -to gather the tasty shell-
fish. This Includes the St. Joseph
Bay area. At (the current time,
scallops are small, but normally
they grow in size throughout the
season.
When scalloping please re-
member the following facts:
Bag limit .is two gallons of
whole bay .scallops in the shell
., per person per day, or one pint of
bay scallop meat per person per
day. At no time can you possess
more than 10 gallons of whole
bay scallops in the shell, or 1/2
gallon of bay scallop meat aboard
any vessel regardless of the num-
ber of people that may be aboard
the vessel.
Bay scallops shall only be
harvested by hand or by the use
of a landing or dip net. Trawls.
drags and dredges are strictly
prohibited.
The season closes September
10. This year the Florida Marine
Fisheries Commission extended
the scallop season by 10 days.
This was done at the request of
local residents and business own-
ers so that Labor Day weekend
visitors would have the chance to
scallop.
If you are required to have a
fishing license to fish, you are re-
quired to have a fishing license to
harvest scallops. The only excep-
tion to the license requirement is
if you are a Florida resident wad-
ing in not more than four feet of
water and are-not using any type
of breathing device (including
snorkle) to aid in locating the
scallops.
If purchased through the
county's tax collector's office Flor-
ida residents can expect. to pay

Ulee's Gold

In Theatres
Ulee's Gold has officially
opened at theatres and
should soon be at a theatre in
the area.
Portions of the fllrtf
depicting! bee keeping were
filmed near WVewahltchka and
one segment was filmed at
Port St.i Joe Elementary
School. The majority of the
movie was filmed in Franklin
County though the theme of
the movie revolves around
Ulee Jackson (Peter Fonda) as
he labors at his bee apiary
near the tupelo marshes.
Ben Lanier of
.Wewahitchka assisted with
much of the beekeeping
expertise and didn't miss an
opportunity to introduce
everyone he saw to the best
honey in the world, tupelo.
The movie is directed by
Victor Nunez and also stars
Home Improvement's Patricia
Richardson, as Lonnie Hope.

" -inata adoption: Ti--fz-G lf
County's beach driving ordinance
during. Monday's meeting clari-.
fied, unified, and nullified eight
ordinances on the county books
pertaining to the. practice.
County commissioners held
the public hearing, and adopted
the ordinance as part of an agree-
ment with FDEP officials to.main-
tain beach .driving along the por-
tion of Cape San Bias that lies
within the Aquatic Preserve (from
the tip of the cape to the entrance
pfT. H. Stone State Park).
A committee of county offi-
cials, local, citizens, cape property
owners, DEP representatives, and
local turtle patrol people hashed
out the plan which included
beefed up patrol of the area, edu-
cating the public on environmen-
tal and ecological concerns, and
limiting access during turtle nest-
ing season (no night time beach
traffic from May I October 31).
It also establishes fines and
punishments for failure to adhere
to the guidelines spelled out in the
document. Those range from
$150.00 fine for a minor violation.
up to a $500 fine for gaining
access to the-beach via a non-des-
ignated access point. Other fines
include: $250 for. failure to obtain
a valid permit. $250 for racing
vehicles; and $250 for noise viola-
tion.,Three violations of the ordi-.
nance will result in beach driving
privileges being revoked for the
offender.
Most of the rules were
addressed in eight county ordi-
nances on beach driving. The new
document consolidated those into
one concise ordinance, removed
any contradictions and replaced
the existing guidelines.
Traylor Talks with
St. Joe Corp CEO
Commissioner Billy Traylor
reported to the board that Friday's
meeting with St. Joe Corpora-
tion's CED Peter Rummell went
well.
Traylor said they discussed
the past. present and future of
Gulf County,. particularly empha-
sizing the future and how it might
affect the area.
"He hinted we could be in the
middle of some future develop-
ment, but gave no specifics or
hints of when," Traylor stated.
Traylor did say that they
talked about the current econom-
ic conditions of the county. "He
offered St. Joe Corporation's
assistance and help in any way
they could, including soliciting
business opportunities seeking to
locate in the area.," he added.


-.--, --..Are WeReady-ror'- -
Hurricane Season?
Marshall Nelson.. Coordinator
of Gulf County Emergency
Management, told the board that
noted weather forecaster,
Professor William Gray, was fore-
casting another active hurricane
season this summer.
s Gray predicts I'] tropical
storms will form In 1997, with
seven hurricanes and three
intense hurricanes developing. If
the predictions materialize. 1997
will make the third consecutive'
above-average hurricane season.
Commissioner Tommy Knox
asked Nelson. "Are we ready'?"
after, hearing the predictions for
the '97 season. ,
-Gulf County has received
more than its share of tropical
storms and hurricanes In recent
years, the major one of which was
Hurricane Opal's visit on October
4th. 1,995.
Knox particularly asked if
Highway 71 would be the same
bottleneck of congestion that it
was in 1995 if county residents
'had to evacuate the area again.
Nelson explained Highway 71
was Gulf County's. main evacua-
tion route and if people wait until
the last minute to leave again it
will probably clog tip again.
The board discussed ways to

Several of our, friends own such boats, although they don't
make .a habit of offering to take us on a trip into the bay or the
Gulf of Mexico. We had rather spend our fishing time drowning a
worm in the several' creeks and rivers which are located in Gulf

A "No-INo"

BIKES, ROLLERBLADES and SKATEBOARDS were not'
made for downtown sidewalk operation. They were made, largely
for operation on the streets and parks of our community, but es-
pecially not for use on the downtown sidewalks.
Why?
Imagine, if you will, some 70-year-old man exiting a down-
town store building. Imagine, also, at the same instant that door '"
swings open, allowing the 70-year-old man to exit the store
building, that a youth is approaching on a skateboard. Will he .4 "
slam Into the opening door, causing the old man to lose his bal-
ance and "fall, injuring him In the process? Will the old man [or
woman make it all the way out of the -door before the youth ar-
rives on his skateboard [rollerblades or bicycle], knocking him/ .
her to the ground, causing him/her to break already brittle 1 N
bones?
The,answer to all phases of this question is: There's more
than a good possibility!
GOOD MANNERS and RESPECT for another's well being
should be sufficient reason for ceasing to operate these fun con-
veyances on the sidewalks of downtown Port St. Joe. Panama .. 1
City doesn't allow it; Apalachicola doesn't allow it. but Port
St. Joe just suggests that you not do it. _
Downtown sidewalks are meant for pedestrians, not skate- -V, "
boards, rollerblades or bicycles. The sidewalks are too congested
most of the time for their safe operation-safe for the operator or ".
safe for the pedestrians.
WE AGREE THAT IS NO worse than the unthinking clods
who make U-turns in the middle of the street in order to park on
the opposite side to which they are travelling. Nor, is it any more
dangerous. Both practices are highly dangerous 'and shouldn't
-be allowed whether or not a policeman is standing by,
watching.
Let's leave the sidewalks to the pedestrians, downtown, and
cease and desist with the U-turns in the middle of the street.

There's just something about

to magnify the thirst quenching

ice-man-delivered ice? There was
nothing like it! It was the main in-
gredient for ice cold tea, lemo-

move slowly down the street, with
the driver keeping an eagle eye
out for the ice card stuck in the
screen door.
You remember those, don't

12"xl2" and had "25", "50", "75",
and "100", printed on each of the
four sides. You would simply
place the card in your screen

desired on the top edge. If you
wanted a 25 pound chunk, you
simply placed the card in your
screen with the "25" placed up-

shards.
These were prized by kids for
grabbing off the truck to eat. "
I; don't know, the ice man's
name who served our house back
in Oklahoma, but I do remember,
the ice came from, Bryant's Ice
House, which stood: at an angler'
on the other side of the street
from our house. The owner lived
on the other end of the block we
lived on, and kept watermelons in


, of the I

his ice house during the summer
months. .
When we moved to Port St.
Joe, back in the summer of 1940,
Bo Browne was the ice man--or
to be more correct, one of the
crew which operated Bo's fleet of
trucks, was. *
But we had an electric refrig-
erator in our new home in Flori-
da. The Ice man still ran his
route; but we didn't have an ice
card to put out for him. We had
to run down to the neighbor's
house where he still stopped to
get our "chewing ice".
Bo usually had a'good supply
of ice "pieces" on the floor of his
pick-up truck delivery vans,
which we attacked voraciously to
sort of take the edge off the heat.
SThose pieces of ice had to do us
until mealtime, when we could
get some Ice tea, lemonade or ice
water to cool off with.
Even the tea, lemonade or
water couldn't' take the place of'
those slivers of ice for a cool res-
pite.


ce Man?

KIDS TODAY MISS some-
thing in not having an Ice delivery
man to look forward to.
There was something about
that sliver of ice, taken' off the
back of an ice delivery truck
which made the hot day. bearable.
Humidity?
It was noting, when added to
a nice hand sized piece of ice
.man's ice.
Heat?
It was made more bearable-
for kids at least-when the ice
man came by.
He was delivering ice to
homes for their ice boxes, in or-
der to keep fresh foods, such as
milk, eggs and butter, fresh.
Once in a while it would have to
do double duty and keep a piece
of meat fresh, too.

I REMEMBER WHEN I first
took over the operation of The
Star back in November of 1952.
The first purchase I made was for


a water cooler. Bo, Browne was
still in the business of delivering
Ice. barely. He delivered most-
ly to business houses, grocery
stores and to people with water
coolers' like myself.
Everybody, needed a water
cooler in the days before air con-
ditioning.
This entire column [needed to
fill my allotted space on this page]
is to tell you that- I ran into my
old ice man the other day. I saw
Robert Farmer while walking
down Reid Avenue and he asked
if I remembered him delivering ice
to the shop some 50 years ago.
Both of us have grown old
since those days, but I assured
Robert I remembered those days.
He was just old enough to have a
drivers' license and work for Bo'
Brown then. Now he works for
Florida Coast Paper, if he isn't re-
tired.
It was good to see Robert. HeW
looks as if he could still toss that
block of ice on his shoulder and,
bring it in the print shop.

Container, were In town on an in-
spection tour. Their expressions
hinged on a single statement that
there is no indication of keeping
the mill closed any longer than,
absolutely necessary.
Neither Kaplan nor Wright
made a definite statement beyond
that broad Indication. Thus, we
can be assured, by their word,
that as soon as it is economically
feasible the mill will resume oper-
ations.
S&P Statement
A week ago, Standard & Poor,
a credit rating firm on Wall
Street, made this statement: "An
offtake agreement by the two

-Stone Container] to purchase the

price formula that essentially cov-
ers all Florida Coast operating
costs, including Interest expense
and maintenance capital expendi-
tures. Four M ariand Stone have
publicly assured Florida Coast
that they will continue to honor
their obligations to the firm "
In other words. S&P states the
two firms have again expressed
an intention to underwrite Florida

S&P also' said in the same
bulletin that, "There are signs of

Does your child constantly
forget what you've said, stay in
trouble at school for not doing his

strangle him on a regular basis?
Is he always on your nerves
,,because he can't be still and he's
into everything?
You may have a child who is
exhibiting the characteristics of
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
Sometimes children who have
ADD have no behavior problems,
but simply can't keep their mind:
on their schoolwork.
Parents who suspect their
children have Attention Deficit
Disorder or whose children have,

matter of fact, the National Weather Ser. ice reported well over 4,500 lighting
strikes across the state, occurring In one hour, List week. People who own
.home computers are very aware of the dangers of power surges. Others may
not find out the consequences to modern electronics and appliances until it
is too late.
Sunshine Electric offers surge protectors for your entire home. Owner'
Cletus Heaps explains, "A power surge is a sudden momentary increase to
household electrical current. Surges can' be caused by the switching on and
off of heavy electrical appliances such as an air conditioner. They can also
be caused by power stations switching from one source of power to another,
or an electrical strike.
"Because of today's advanced electronic technology, suppressors are.
especially important for protecting the complex electronic circuitry used in
TV's, VCR's, stereos, computers and most of today's appliances. Even small
fluctuations in your household current voltages put a lot of strain on major
appliances."
There are ten times as many sensitive equipment failures during
Florida's storm season. As appliances and electronic equipment become
more sophisticated they are also more sensitive to the harmful effect of4
surges. -
-Cletus Heaps is a licensed electrical contractor with over 35 years expe-
rience. He is a master electrician with inter state experiences. His business is
on call seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Cletus will install a surge protec-
tor that will protect your entire household. The suppressor installed is
$115.00 and is covered by a lifetime warranty.
Cletus Heaps reminds us "the bitterness of poor quality lingers long
after, the sweetness of cheap price is'forgotten."
Sunshine Electric is licensed and insured to do residential, commer-
cial, and industrial electrical contractingin Bay, Gulf, Franklin and surround-
ing counties. For an appointment or more information, call owner Cletus
Heaps now at 904-227-1738.

"Smokeless"


Tobacco Problem


If you've given up smoking
cigarettes but are now chewing
tobacco, you can still have den-
tal, problems that have been
, found -to be tobacco related.
According'to researchers, pro-
longed or excessive use of
smokeless' tobacco can pro-
duce irritants that have an
unhealthy effect on gum and
bone tissue. If damaged tissue
isn't treated in time, this can
lead to permanent damage,
loosening of the teeth, and
eventually loss of teeth.
Another condition that
users of smokeless tobacco
should be aware of is hyperker-
atosis. This is the formation of
a whitish, callous-like thicken-
ing in' the mouth. It usually


occurs in the area where, the
tobacco is placed for chewing,
sometimes called the "snuff
pouch."
Whether you smoke or
chew tobacco, and even if you.
do neither, regular dental
checkups are the only way you
can protect the health of your
teeth and mouth. If there is the
beginning of any kind of dental-
related problem, the earlier the
treatment the better chance
you have of keeping your teeth
and mouth healthy.

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

SInterpretation of Net Ban Rule Comes To Gulf


Marine Patrol
Judges throughout the Pan-
handle's Gulf front counties are
challenging the state's net ban
constitutional amendment as be-
ing unconstitutional in nature,
especially on the way the Florida
Marine Patrol is interpreting it.
Now, Gulf County Judge Rob-

to join the crowd. The FMP has
arrested what they term as a vio-
lator, fishing near Presnell's Fish
Camp. According to the arrest no-

this year.
The Florida Fishermen's Fed-
eration has taken up the gauntlet
,on behalf of the arrested fisher-
man, along with Ronald Crum, of
Panacea, an activist on behalf of
the commercial fishermen. Crum,
along with Ray Pringle,. executive
director of the FFF, have ap-

Janegale Boyd, and to Governor
Lawton Chiles to intervene in
their behalf against the FMP.

Rotarians Hear


History Behind the


Proposed Marina


The Rotary Club membership
learned a little bit more about the
proposed marina for Port St. Joe,
how it was started and how the
project has had to vault over sev-
eral hurdles on Its way to becom-
ing a reality here.
Greg Johnson. a member of
the committee, and Bill Kennedy,
engineer for the project, talked
about the project and answered
questions.
----Jobson-said-the marina4dea.-
was hatched iby a committee back
in 1994 [although we distinctly
remember a committee headed
up by druggist John Robert
Smith beginning to tout a marina
some 25 years agol.
Johnson said the marina has
met government restrictions since
that time and has been forced to
move the location at least three
times since its inception because
the chosen site would not meet
the criteria set by bay watchers
or the state agencies. -
The first marina was sched-
uled to be located at the west end
of Fifth Street, where the launch
site presently is located. Lack of
room and the proximity to sea
grass beds forced its first move..
The alternative was the Raffield,
Seafood Company location.
Then in May 1996, thetn-
Mayor Frank Pate talked the.Hess
Oill Co.; out -of its abandoned
'pumping depot, along with 28
waterfront acres for the princely
sum of $10.00. Of course the
purchase had some stipulations,
placed on it by Hess. The proper-
ty could only be used for some


such place as a public marina.
So. the proposed marina ldca-
tion was changed to' this site. In
the short time since it has been
acquired, the site has been
cleared of its storage tanks,
pumping station and other ma-
chinery, formerly used to pump-
oil from here to Chattanooga.
Tenn., during the big war.
Grant money was made avail-
able. with the 'proviso that match-
--ing-money-be made-available to
.construct a marina. This,'and the
necessary permits from the
state's Department of Community
Affairs, are the problems the com-
mittee is attempting to Iron out at
the present time. The committee
is currently trying, to solve' its,
money problem by attracting 'a
private investor with the use of
the property and the $650,000
grant being used as bait. .
Plans are to install facilities
.for.120 wet slips and between 30
arid 45 dry slips.
The second problem-that of
securing necessary permits-is
scheduled to be completed by the
end of this month.
The committee has to meet :a
timetable in all of this. It has:
been given a deadline to have
something started by March of
next year, or lose Its grant. That's
why the committee' is in a hurry,
-that's why they haven't had much
time to do the preferred PR work
of selling the community on the
project.
A 'visitor of the club was Bob
Gershbacher of Dahloinega, Ga.


caused some ,confusion for all of
uis. We are familiar with the Gold
Seal and the Academic Scholars
programs -- these still exist, but
under :a different heading and
with modified gtuidelines. A major
change has been to group ALL of
Florida's scholarships under the
umbrella' of, Bright Future's
Schola ships. '
There are three scholarships
under this category: Florida Aca-
demic Scholars, Florida Gold Seal
Vocational Scholars, and a new,
scholarship called Florida Merit
Scholars. To be eligible for the
Florida Academic Scholars award.
a student must have an overall
G.P.A. of 3.5. a minimum score of
28 on the A.C.T. or 1270 on the
SAT and have taken the required
19 credits identified by the Flori-
da Board of Regents as college
preparatory. If the Department of
Education awards a student this
scholarship, full tuition and fees
for up to 45 semester hours per
year will be paid plus $600 for
books.
- The Florida Gold Seal Voca-
tion Scholars award, for the stu,
dent who meets the criteria of
completing three vocational cred-
Its in a sequenUal program of
studies with a minimum of a 3.5
G.P.A. in that program and has
an overall G.P.A. of 3.0, will pro-
vide 75% of the tuition and fees
up to 45 semester hours per year.
Beginning in 1998, students
must also continue in a planned,
related postsecondary education
program (Tech Prep program).
,The new scholarship provided
by the legislature is the Florida
Merit Scholars Award. This schol-
arship ,is available to students
with a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0 in
the 19 credits identified as college
'preparatory, and a score of 970
-on the SA.T. or 20 on the A.C.T.
It -will, like Gold Seal, .provide
75% of tuition and fees utp to 45
semester hours per year. ,
Students who meet the eligi-
bility criteria apply for the Bright
Futures Scholarship Awards
'through their high school, but the
,bottom ,line is that the Depart-
ment of Education decides which
scholarship will be awarded and


the amount of money each stu-
dent will receive. A student may
; receive only one of these schblar-
ships, and it can only be used in
the state of Florida at any state
college, university, vo-tech school
or approved private'school. This
scholarship program went into ef-
fect May 13, 1997.
For further information, con-
tact your high school guidance
counselor 'or call the DOE 'at 1-
888-827-2004. You may also ac-
cess DOE electronically at http://
www.flm.edu/doe. It's never too
early to start preparing for the fti-
ture.

Scallop Recipes to Slap Your Tongue Over!
-A


The scallop, like to oyster, is a
bivalve mollusk. Oysters live their
life attached to the bottom, while
scallops move about by swim-'
ming. Scallops swim by snapping
their shells together and expelling
a jet of water. This action leads to
the development of an oversized
adductor muscle called the "eye".
This sweet-flavored muscle is the
only part of the scallop eaten by
Americans, but Europeans eat the
entire shucked scallop.'
The name, "scallop", aptly
describes the fluted, edges of Its
fan-shaped shell. The. shells of
young scallops are beautiful. The
outside shell is delicately colored
pink and white and the inside is
pearly-white, with a satiny luster.
Calico scallop meats vary from
creamy white to light tan or pink.
They measure about 1/2 inch to
3/4 inch in diameter; Calico are
generally lower- in price than other
scallop meats, which makes them
a good buy.
Calico scallops are harvested
with trawls and dredges in deep.
offshore waters ofr Florida's
Atlantic and northern Gulf
coasts. Heaviest catches occur
during the months of September


through December. Scallops do
not close their shells tightly like
oysters and clams. They must be
shucked soon after harvest or
they lose body moisture.
Fresh-shucked scallop meats
should be refrigerated on ice (35-
40 degrees F.) and will maintain
quality for two days. Frozen scal-
lop meats, held at 0 degrees F. or
less; will maintain quality for
three to four months. In choosing
scallop meats, examine the prod-
uct for a creamy color, firm tex-
ture, and a mild, sweet odor.
Packages of scallop meats should
be practically free of liquid.
Scallops may be poached,
sauteed, broiled, baked, or fried.
They should be cooked quickly to
maintain -moisture and delicate
texture.

BEST FOOT FORWARD
By: Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist


SAME-DAY SURGERY
One of the strongest 'trends
in health care is the increase in
out-patient surgery. Slightly
more'than half of all operations
today do not involve an overnight
stay in a hospital.
Many podiatric conditions
are treatable by surgery. that
doesn't require a hospital stay.
Some same-day operations are
performed in hospitals, but most
are done in. the podiatrist's
office. These range beyond the
correction of itigrown to'enalls
and painful corns, to hammer-
toes. bunions and bone spurs.

Difficult


Paths

."- find, "The Lord is my
.1 light and my salvation;
V 'whom shall I fear? The
Oliver F. Taylor Lord is the stronghold of,
Visitation Minister, First my life; of whom shall I
United Methodist Church be afraid?" At some time
in life every Christian will walk -a difficult path.
It may be a personal relationship, a problemri
with money or a job or it can be a health prob-
lem. These are the times when Christians need
the Lord for strength.
My wife Laura and I have a strong faith.
This has always carried us through difficult
times. Each 6f us has to accept our mortality.
No one is without problems. Similar problems
happen to all people. It's how we face problems
as Christians that-makes the difference. I hope
and pray that each of you has the Lord as the'
stronghold of your life.

Report

"Fighting for Medicare and Social Security"


I truly believe that public ser-
vice Is a public trust. As lawmak-
ers, our most sacred responsibili-
ties include the honoring of those
who have come before us and
built this nation.
Our 'parents and grandpar-
ents and their generation -
have' built the foundation upon
which our country has forged a
growing economy, a peaceful soci-
ety, and a nation that values free-
dom. I draw upon the lessons they
taught us as we- consider the
health and vitality of Medicare
and Social Security.
There has' been a growing
awareness of the dangers that
threaten the security of these cru-
cial programs. Many times over
the last, 15 -years, our nation's
leaders :have acted to provide
short-term relief to maintain the
Medicare and Social Security
Trust Funds.
Most of these actions were
done in a bipartisan manner, and
enjoyed the support of most pro-
gramn recipients. However, after
the 1994 elections, Congressional
Republicans proposed drastic
cuts in these programs that would
have adversely affected recipients
and sacrificed Important political
support for maintaining our com-
mitment to seniors. In the face of
stern opposition by Democrats
and the public,, those cuts were
never enacted.
However, important questions
about the economic stability of the
Medicare and Social Security
Trust Funds remain. Medicare
Part A, which provides coverage
for medical expenses incurred
during hospitalization or extended,
home health care, is facing both a
long-term and short-term finan-
cial problem.
Simply, the growing number
of retirees are rising in relation to
the number of workers who are
paying rito the l'uist' tind- IThe
L ee n t -dgi'- rd'n1 t' tf' P'es'rdenf'
and congressional leaders' will
b include modest reforms' that will'
lengthen the life of the Medicare
Trust Fund to 2008.


VAAlerts National
Guardsmen Eligible
for GI Bill Benefits
The Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) is alerting certain cur-
rent and former members of the
National 'Guard that they may be
eligible for Montgomery G:I. Bill
education benefits they previous-
lyv could riot obtain.
Legislation signed intd law
October 9, 1996, enables certain
full time National Guardsmen
who entered their first period of
active duty in the military
between July 1, 1985. and
November 28, 1989, to elect
Nlontgomery ,G.l Bill (Active Duty)
benefits. The election must be
made before July 8.
"While we believe that those


That is good news for those
who currently rely on this pro-
gram as their primary health cov-
erage, but, obviously a compre-
hensive solution- to our long-term
problems is needed to ensure sol-
vency well into the next century.
The Social Security Trust
Fund will continue' to run a sur-
plus and invest in Treasury
Bonds until 2012 when the
payroll tax will not be sufficient to
cover payments to deserved recip-
ients. As' of now, we expect that
the government will begin redeem-
ing those Treasury Bonds tp make
sure that :seniors continue to
receive benefits through 2029.
I believe that we must make
important judgments about the
future integrity of these programs.
Medicare and Social Security are
valuable programs that benefit
people who have dedicated their
lives -to raising their families.
working in their communities, and
building our country. They must
be reformed so that they will be
financially 'viable. But, they must
be reformed In such a way that
does not harm our seniors.
As a nation, we should be dis-
* cussing the issue of saving
Medicare and Social Security. We
should demand that seniors, anrid
the groups that' represent their
"interests, have an opportunity to
work with us as partners --in
determining \what changes we can
make to improve the quality of
service and: maintain accessibility
while saving money. Drastic and,
untested reforms that jeopardize
the fundamentals of each program
should be rejected.
I believe that North Floridians
join all of America In broadly sup-
porting Social Security and
Medicare. Each- of our families
have had loved ones who have
greatly benefitted by the fruits of
these Trulst-Funds. We have a
S'.te'spohsibiit.y to 'be good caretak-'
ers and make decisions that will
preserve these programs today,
and strengthen them for future
generations.


affected by this. legislation are
aware of their option to elect
Montgomery G.I. Bill education
benefits, we are making every.
Effort to' ensure eligible National
Guardsmen have the opportunity
to act before the July deadline,"
said Acting Under Secretary for
Benefits Stephen Lemons.

should contact their Education
Officer for election procedures.

letter carriers nationwide, about
nine dog bites every delivery day.
But as high as that number is,' it
pales ,in comparison to the 4.7
million U.S. citizens bitten yearly.
Half are left scarred, a tenth re-,
quire stitches, and a third suffer
lost school or work time. *
Even more chilling were the
12 deaths recorded last year as a
result of dog attacks.
A study by, the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
identified 299 dog bite-related' fa-
talities that occurred in the Unit-
ed States from 1979 through
1996.
Those people who confidently
say, "My dog never bites," will be
surprised to learn that nearly 70
percent of the fatal attacks in-
volved a family pet. Twelve deaths
Involved three to 22 dogs in run-
ning packs.
One of the most disturbing
statistics revealed that the vast
majority of deaths occurred
among children under one
month.
Among older children, most
cases involved a victim ,who
gained unauthorized access fo a
.fenced yard where a dog was
kept, or who wandered too close
/ to a chained dog.
Clearly, parents must never
leave a defenseless infant with a
dog and must make sure. that old-
er children know the potential
danger of dog bites.
The study recommends
strong animal control laws. pub-
lic education regarding dog bites,
and more responsible dog owner-
ship. .
Studies also have shown that
dogs are three times more likely
to be involved' in a biting incident

Under the. change, all region-

have debilitating, chronic symp-
toms that are not explained by
conventional diagnoses arid are
,,among those to whom a. special
1995 "undiagnosed' illness" comrn-,
pensation regulation applies.
A regulatory amendment that
took effect April 29. extended
through the year 2001 the time
period during which undiagnosed
illnesses may appear and be eligi-
ble for disability compensation.
That policy change is prompt-
ing another look, at more than
4,000 .claims that previously were
.denied when symptoms did not
first appear within the prior man-
ifestation window, which was two
years after the date the individual
Gulf War veteran left the Persian
Gulf theater.
In addition to reviewing possi-
ble new undiagnosed illnesses
claims, the four area processing
offices (Louisville, Philadelphia,
Phoenix, and Nashville) already
had been re-reviewing previously
denied cases to ensure that veter-
ans have been adequately encour-
aged to look:for supporting docu-
mentation, that proper weight
was being given to lay evidence,
arid that information was being
correctly entered into a special
N tracking system.,
With the added workload aris-
ing from these factors, VA found
the operations of the area pro-
cessing offices increasingly
strained. The aim of the policy
change is to' improve timely action
on Gulf War veterans' claims.
VA encourages Gulf War vet--
erans who have health problems
to contact their local VA medical
centers if they have not already

VA Announces

Change in SGLI

Premium Rates
SThe Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) is announcing that
the monthly premium rate for
Service. Members' Group Life
Insurance (SGLI) will decrease
from 9 to 8-1/2 cents per $1,000
of coverage, beginning July 1,
1997.
The change means that the
monthly premium for a service
member with the maximum SGLI
coverage of $200,000 will
decrease from $18 to $17, a sav-
ings of $26 'million to service
members. The decrease is attrib'-
utable to a continuing decline in
mostalty -rates .and is. the first
rate change, for SGLI since July 1,
1994, when the rate was'
increased to 9 cents. .
The new rate, which will
result in a savings of $26 million
to service members, is attribut-
able to a. continuing decline in
mortality rates.
Some 97 percent of service
members, or a total of 2.3 million
service members, carry more, than
$449 billion in SGLI coverage.
More than 90 percent, take the
maximum $200,000 in coverage.,
Service .members insured by
; SGLI are guaranteed the right to
convert their coverage to Veterans'
Group Life Insurance (VGLI).

Did You Know?
Gasolines labeled as "premi-
um," "super," or "high test" must
have a minimum octane rating of
91. Gas labeled "mid-grade" or
"plus" must have a minimum 89
octane rating. The minimum,
octane rating for gasoline labeled'
"regular" or "unleaded" must be at
least 87.
Detergents once found only in
premium-grade gasolines are now
required in all grades-so, in gen -
eral, little or nothing is gained by
using a higher octane gasoline
than that recommended in a vehi-
cle's owner's manual.
HIowever, a "pinging" sound in
a car's engine may indicate that
use of a higher octane gasoline'
may be appropriate, or that the
vehicle needs engine mainte-
nance .
