OUR REPRESENTATIVE IN THE state legislature, Jamey
Westbrook, of Bascom, made a wise observation last week while
he was attempting to get a court test of the boundaries which
the Florida Marine Patrol must abide by while enforcing the net
ban law. Rep. Westbrook said, "I'm afraid the constitutional
amendment prohibiting net fishing will kill the industry."
A likely observation.
Of course, the FMP needs to know its boundaries. If it is not
officially told what the parameters of its enforcement of the law
are, nobody can blame its officers for interpreting the law in the
most effective manner they understand. Nobody can really put
the entire blame on them for using a baseball bat as an enforce-
ment tool, when a twig would do.
THE FLORIDA MARINE Patrol, after all, is made up of indi-
viduals sworn to enforce the law which is presented to them. If
that law isn't clarified, they can't be entirely blamed for covering
The FMP has earned a foul name for itself through the ac-
tions of a few individual officers-a reputation, which in all like-
lihood, isn't entirely all true. But be that as it may. The FMP
needs direction in the way it should be expected to interpret the
net ban law-some ground rules, if you will-and spell them
With litigation still going on concerning the legality or the
unconstitutionality still to be determined, it isn't any wonder
that the question is being loosely interpreted.
WESTBROOK IS ENTIRELY correct when he states the fu-
ture of the commercial fishing industry is at stake, here. Florida
has the best chance to completely kill the industry of any state
in the union. If it does, Florida will succeed in doing away with
one of the main attractions for tourists we have to offer. They
will manage to do this upon the peoples' own choice and by their
Tourists just automatically think "fishing, fishing nets, fish-
ing boats and fishing gear" when .they consider Florida as a
place to go where they can see all that local "color". The lure of a
Tarpon Springs will be gone. The attraction of an Apalachicola
will vanish. The seafood production inspired romance of a Homo-
sassa will vanish.
These, and many other spots like them in Florida, draw mil-
lions of visitors to Florida every year. It isn't all 'The Sunshine
Rep. Westbrook is on the right track. Let's hope a sensible
approach to solving this problem comes out of the study.
Short Term Fix
WE APPLAUD COUNTY COMMISSION chairman Nathan Pe-
ters for writing Florida Department of Labor chairman Doug Ja-
merson, requesting a six months' extension on unemployment
benefits. That is truly a short term fix for our unemployment
problems in and around Port St. Joe. Folks need to-know where
their next grocery purchase payment is coming from. The unem-
ployment benefits, while, not what the workersare accustomed
to bringing home, are nonetheless better than no income at all. .
We remember several times of enforced idleness over the
past 40 years for workers at the paper mill and subsequent hard
times for the merchants of this close knit community. Unem-
ployment benefits looked pretty good then as they do today.
BUT WE CAN'T HELP but believe these energies could now
be put to better use to touch whatever nerve it will take to get
these men working once again.
As we said before, the unemployment 'compensation doesn't
entirely compensate for the lost wages they are meant to allevi- .
ate the loss of. Too, we believe the men had much rather be
working than to be on the dole.
It could be that Jamerson, given the clout of his office, might
just be .dn a position to encourage the mill owners to speed up
their plans to crank .the mill up and become productive. once
' WE APPRECIATE THE short term fix attempt, but we hope
elected officials' clout doesn't stop here. Let's urge our labor sec-
retaries and others in charge of such matters to use their influ-
ence to get rolling once again. It can't be any more fun for the
mill owners to have it sitting idle than it is for the workers to be
sitting idle; unemployment compensation payments notwith-
Let's hear that whistle blowing five times a day once again.

School Board Preparing Budget Plan In Monday Morning Session
Attempting to "Hold the Line" While Reducing Sizable Deficit With $212,000 In New State Contributions
With a sizeable deficit staring them in the face, the Gulf
County School Board is in the throes of preparing a budget for
the new school year which will "hold the line" in the face of Gulf
County's economic situation at this particular time.
It will be like walking through a field of egg shells, without
stepping on any and breaking them when its financial planning
session begins next Monday morning at 9:00 a.m.
The board has tentatively taken steps to overcome some of
the projected deficit spending which has become a reality to it
and several other neighboring counties because of an erratic
state contribution over the past few years. Gulf is looking at a
slight dip in local effort money from 6.480 mills last year to a
rate of 6.454 mills for the coming year. That isn't much of a re-
duction, but it's a reduction. The discretionary fund millage has
been tentatively reduced from .718 to .710. However, local capi-
tal improvement fund millage has been increased slightly from
.820 to .854.
The discretionary fund has been left the same, according to
Superintendent Jerry Kelley, in order to purchase two new
school buses this year. "We've always purchased from two to,
three new buses each year to keep our fleet dependable. We op-
erate 28 buses throughout the system. For the past two years,
however, we have not purchased a single new bus. Some of our
fleet is now 15 years old," he declared.
The Board made some personnel cuts at the end of the last
school term which Kelley feels,should allow it to make up the
projected deficit-"Hopefully in a single year," Kelley said. These
personnel cuts were made largely through retirement and resig-
nations, but four employees were not called back. The cuts in
personnel included some classroom teachers-four-who were
on annual contracts. "Annual contract teachers were the only
place we could cut without slashing.programs, and we took
them by seniority," Kelley said.
A total of three positions were reduced from the Wewahitch-
ka High School staff, three from Port St. Joe High School and
one from Port St. Joe, Middle School..
The Superintendent stressed that only one program was cut
out in the economy move. "The auto mechanics course in Wewa-
hitchka was eliminated," he said.
STATE LOWERS CONTRIBUTION
The funding of the full load of employees is being reduced to
bring expenditures within the expected state contribution and
without raising local taxes, according to Kelley. "The state has
reduced its contributions in the middle of the school year for the
past two or three years," Kelley said. "This year, they tell us we
are going to receive an additional $212,000 more funds, but only
$192,000 of that money will be in unrestricted money."
Given the state's performance on money participation the
past few years, the local district is being wary of promises and
not extending itself too much.
Kelley said, "Our budget should come in around $12'million;
the same as last year, barring any unforseen expenses. Just
don't look for anything new and do expect to see a tightened up
operation until we get this deficit under control," the Sup~erinten-

Designate New Funds
The meeting was originally
scheduled to discuss the board's
options on what to do with funds
generated through their new pre-
trial release program. The pro-
gram was established by ordi-
nance at the board's last regular
meeting. It established a $40 fee
for persons normally released on
Gulf County Judge Bob
Moore initiated the idea suggest-
ing those released under condi-
tional release guidelines should
help defray the expense of admin-
istering the program.
Moore also has mentioned his
idea of using the generated funds
as seed money to help establish a
youth coordinator for the county
that would work closely with the
school system on youth related
issues and problems.
He asked (at Tuesday's meet-
ing) the board to let the funds
accumulate as they are collected.
"After they build to a, reasonable
amount, they .might be -used as
matching funds for grant applica-

Twixt a Bear and a
Written by Dave Maddox
The Great Depression chal-
lenged people to do everything
they could to survive and provide
a living for their families. During
this time, Mr. Charles Beard and
Mr. Jim Sealey, along with their
families, lived in White City.
Mr. Beard was employed in
the turpentine industry by Mr.
Belin and Mr. Bullard. Mr. Sealey
operated the pontoon bridge to
facilitate traffic across the canal.
He also owned a small store and _
gas station near the canal.
At this time, our part of the
state was open range to livestock
so most families owned a milk
cow and a few hogs, Mr. Sealey
included. His cow had a bull year-
ling about half grown. These ani-
mals,provided milk and an occa2-
sional hog to.butcher for meat.
Fishing in the lake and along
the canal was good so this helped
put food 'on the table. Mr. Beard
and Mr. Sealey also kept some
bees in the lake swamps to help
generate a little more income.
A bear began to destroy their
bee hives so they set a trap near
the hives 'and caught the bear.
Initially, they planned to kill the
bear, but changed their. mind.
They took him to White City and
chained him to a post across the.
road from Mr. Sealey's store for
people to see, then erected, a fence
around the bear to keep people at
a -safe distance.
The bread truck delivered
bread about twice a week to Mr.
Sealey's store. The driver would
feed some of the old bread he had
removed from the store shelves to
the gentle yearling. As the year-
ling grew, he watched for. the
bread man and upon hearing the
truck, he would meet the driver
for the old bread.'
v On one of these trips, the dri-
ver brought along a teenager to
help on. the delivery route. When
they arrived at-Mr. Sealey-'s.store.,
the driver instructed the young,
fellow to take some of the old
bread across the road anid throw
it to the bear.
Having never .seen' a bear
before, he was curious, as well as
a little frightened, but quite
focused on his goal and totally
unaware of the yearling that was
following close behind him
expecting to get some brad.
When the teenager was with-
in throwing distance, .he threw the
bread toward the bear. As the
bear charged toward the bread he
frightened the young fellow and
as the young fellow turned to run,
he was face to face with the year-
ling. This scared the yearling and
Being caught between the
bear and the young bull was more
than the young fellow had antici-
pated so he started: yelling and
running. The bread truck-driver
finally retrieved him from the
swamp and calmed him down.
As mentioned earlier, it was
an open range area and livestock
roamed at will. Mi. Less Griffin, a
crusty old fellow from Wewa
owned some cows that ranged
around White City.'.
One day as he was checking
on his herd, he determined an old
longhorn had given birth to a calf
so he walked closer to check
things out The cow was in no

Have construction or
house repair questions?
a ASK WADE
Question: I am building my own house. What is the
advantage of using solid block construction?
Answer: Solid block construction greatly reduces the
potential for air infiltration and creates a very
quiet dwelling. These blocks may be cut with
conventional wood working tools. They are
non-toxic and non-polluting.
Question: Are there any advantages of using a geo-
thermal system in the house I am building?
Answer: This type system can deliver heat at a high-
er temperature. These systems are more
efficient and less expensive to operate.

Research by scientists at
Harvard Medical School reveals
that consumption of tomatoes
and tomato-based products may
reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Tomato-based products are.:
rich in vlcopene-a compound
that gives tomatoes, watermelons
and red grapefruit their red color.
While it is uncertain how
lycopene might provide protection
against ,prostate cancer,
researchers noted that the pig-
ment is a strong antioxidant
which could inhibit the develop-
ment of cancer cells.

St. Joseph Bay
. Does It Need Special Care?
After nearly a full year of en-
listing testimony and presenta-
tions from various experts in
their field, the St. Joseph Bay
Committee is nearing the point of
attempting to compile a list of
suggestions it feels is necessary
for the continued well-being of
The organization has heard
from experts on sea grasses, ex-
perts on pollution, authorities on
erosion, educated opinion on the
present condition of the bay, as
well as a host of other experts in
their field on the proper balance
of outside influences to maintain
the bay's continued effectiveness
as a part of the estaurine commu-
water by the state of Florida.
The question the committee
has been getting prepared to have
input on for the past year, Is, how
do we keep it in that condition?
The committee is made up of
several private citizens, with no
appointments by any governing
agency and no authority to bring
about any changes on their own.
The clout they can manage
on their own influence of num-
bers has yet to be tested. But,'
this is what they are about to do.
After all the input, they may
decide the best thing to do Is to
hold on to what they have; just

ness of recommendations of spe-
cific action regarding the care
and well-being of the bay.

formulary, a' move 'that will pro-
vide system-wide consistency in
pharmaceutical dispensing poli-
cies and practices, effective on
Said VA Under Secretary for
Health Dr. Kenneth W. Kizer, "The
advantage of a national formulary
is that it facilitates continuity and
consistency of care, increases
standardization of pharmaceuti-
cal products and efficiency, and
lowers pharmaceutical prices
through enhanced competition.
The net effect for the patient is
better care at a lower price."
The national formulary con-
tains prescription medications,
over-the-counter drugs, and mred-
ical and surgical supplies. To pro-
vide flexibility and assure that
individual patient needs are met,
VA medical centers may use prod-.
ucts not on the formulary if cer-
tain patients need non-formulary
items. The formulary is a dynam-
, icdocument which will undergo
continuous review, allowing VA to
respond to changes in therapeu-
tics and clinical treatment
VA has also sought additional
savings beyond its routine low
prices through national volume-
based competitive pharmaceuti-
cal contracting. The result has
been a savings of more than $100
million in the last year.
VA currently spends $1.3 bil-
lion annually on pharmaceuti-
cals, or between 6 to 7 percent of.
the total VA health care dollar.

* Plants Are Especially Vulnerable to Hurricanes
Early Preparation of Young Trees and Shrubs Can Provide Protective Measures
Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
The arrival of hurricane sea-
oson signals the need to develop
:some contingency plans to guard
;our lives and property from pow-
lerful winds and flooding rains.
-Ornamental plants and other
:landscape objects are especially
:vulnerable. My, Information on
'hurricanes was' provided by Ex-
tension's Horticulture Specialist,
Dr. Robert Black, located at the
University of Florida.
One of the most important
protective measures is to stake
down any new trees and shrubs
you've planted within a year. The
stakes should be two or three feet
long. You'll need three or four per
tree. Drive them into the soil to a
depth of 18 to 24 inches, slanting
them away from the tree at a 45
degree angle, this will make them
more secure anid; less likely to be
How far down you place the
stakes from a tree will depend on
, its size. A general rule is to locate
the stakes the same distance
from the base of the tree as the
height above the ground at which
you plan to attach guy wires. To
secure the wires and keep them
from slipping off, make notches
in the stakes a few Inches from
the top' of each. Then, attach
wires in these notches, and run
them to a point about two-thirds
up the trunk. Before attaching
the wires to the tree, run them
through lengths of garden hose to
protect the bark. Now, tighten the
wires enough to prevent excessive
tree movement, but not so tight
that they may break--or,; worse
yet, cause the tree to break in

MEDITATIONS OF A
By LOWELL F. ADAMS
TOO GOOD, or
STOO BAD? ""
"I will be merciful to their
unrighteousness, and their
sins and their iniquities .' i'
will I remember no more." -
A GENTLEMAM TOLD ME RECENTLY, "God
wouldn't have me. I've been too mean and ugly all my life."
But there is no difference with God. All are sinners and He
wants to save everyone from the wrath to come. Pharasees were
criticising Jesus one day for associating with publicans and
sinners. He told' them that they who are well do not need a
doctor, but those who are sick. Meaning if they were not sinners
they would not need Him.
On another occasion a lady said, "I think I'm just as good,
as anyone down there at the church." And she was probably
right maybe even "gooder" than some. Many "good" people
are just as much in need of a Savior as those who are, not so
good. Being good is not what saves. In Ephesians 2:8-9 we are
told "By Grace you are saved, through FAITH; and that not of
yourselves; it is the GIFT of God; and not of works." Being
"good" is certainly commendable, and everyone should be
good. As descendants of Adam and Eve, we are all under a-
burden of inherited sin. Jesus is our remedy for that. In John
14:6 Jesus declared "I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE:
No one comes unto the Father, except by me." During the Old
Testament days, -iod tried the "being good" way for people to
get right with Him, but they refused. They even killed His
messengers (prophets). So He sent His Son, Jesus, ushering in a
New Covenant of Grace. Jesus lived His life sinless and perfect
before the Father, fulfilling God's law to the letter., In doing,
this. He became the acceptable sacrifice for all our sins.
Now instead of depending on living good enough for God
to accept us, we must place our trust and FAITH in Jesus, God's
Son. God's law says the wages of sin is death, and Jesus came
to take our. place in paying that terrible debt. Now when we
accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, the Grace of a loving Father
accounts us as righteous, 'because our Savior is righteous.
Nothing much has changed in this old sinful body, and it is still
tempted to sin, although our Spirit wants to please God.
Isn't God wonderful?

Permit Is Needed to
rake Migratory Game Birds Now
A new program to enable the
U.S. 'Fish and Wildlife Service
(USFWS) to get a more accurate
reading on the number of migra-
tory birds hunters take each year
will go into effect this season.
The Migratory Bird Harvest
Information Program will require
all migratory bird hunters to get a
free migratory bird permit by fill-
ing out a questionnaire on the
new universal license application.
" Hunters planning to take
ducks, coots, doves, woodcock,
rails, gallinules (common
moorhens) or snipe in Florida this

"To get the box checked, you
just have to complete a short
questionnaire," said Susan Wood,
chief of licensing and permitting
with the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission (GFC). "This
permit is available at tax collec-
tor's offices or at retail stores that
sell hunting and fishing licenses."
The new program will enable
wildlife agencies to set season
dates and bag limits to provide
sportsmen with as many hunting
opportunities as possible,
because they will be working with
more accurate figures than ever
