Dismissed

Pay, Work Demands
Gives Board
Ultimatum
During a special-called meet-
ing of the Gulf County Chamber
of Commerce Board of Directors
Thursday, April 23. Executive
Director Tamara Laine was dis-
missed' firWr her position-by' the
board.
According, to Chamber of
Commerce president David
Warriner. the board deliberated
and considered a number of dif-
ferent options before regrettably
reaching a unanimous decision to
dismiss Ms. Laine from her
duties.
"The bases for the dismissal
were demands and conditions
that were outlined by Ms. Laine if
she were to be retained past that
date," Warriner said.
After consideration of the
demands, which included a sub-
stantial pay raise, the board
agreed the Chamber of Commerce
did not have budgeted resources
to accommodate her.
"Ms. Laine's service to the
Chamber of Commerce and peo-
ple of the greater Gulf County
area was noted and appreciated
by the board and she was wished
well In her future endeavors."
Warriner said.
A lot is going on right now In
Gulf County and with the
Chamber of Commerce, Warriner

Turtle Nesting
Changes Beach
Driving Hours
Turtle nesting activities
change beach driving hours from
the Stumphole area to St. Joseph
State Park from May 1 through,
October each year.
The Gulf County Sheriffs
Department notified The Star ear-
lier this week that as of May 1.
there will be no beach traffic on
the above-mentioned beach from
dusk until dawn.
The restriction is being
enforced as spelled out in Gulf
County's agreement with DEP to
maintain beach driving in the
area while protecting the environ-
mentally sensitive and protected
sea turtle.
Volunteer turtle patrol units
will be checking the beaches early
every morning for new turtle
crawls. Nests will be marked off
and the beach areas will be
reopened for vehicular, traffic.
Residents should also be
reminded that lights along the
Gulf area need to be turned off
during the nesting period.
Hatchlings can be misdirected by
those lights and crawl toward
shore rather than the moonlit
ocean waters.


Bill Kennedy, with Preble-Rish Engineers, attaches signature while Jerry Ausley with Rural
Development Agency explains procedures, flanked by Jim Dean RYAAttorney


Final steps toward beginning construction of the Port St. Joe
marina were taken last Thursday, April 23. when representatives
from Rural Development Agency, Royal American Construction.
Preble-Rish Engineers, Inc., and Port St. Joe held a pre-construc-
tion conference and issued the notice to proceed to Royal
American Construction Company.
As previously reported, Royal American was the low bidder for
the project at k2.94 million. S875.000 in grant funds coupled
with a low interest loan from EDA will finance the project origi-
nally estimated at S3.5 million by city engineers.
Bill Kennedy, Preble-Rish Engineers, Inc.. said construction is
set to begin on May 4th. "
He said the contractor will start grading and surveying the site
at the time and will likely spend approximately 60 days digging
out for the boat basin.
The 159 slip marina will feature 120 wet slips capable of han-
dling small and large boats and 39 dry slips.
A ships store, fuel, restroom facilities, parking area. launch
site, and all the other amenities associated with a full service
marina facility are included in the construction plans.
Royal American beat out nine bidders for the project with bids
ranging from their low of S2.945 million to 84 million at bid open-
ings in February.
Construction is scheduled to be complete in February 1999.
After construction of the marina, city commissioners have dis-
cussed several plans for its operation. The general consensus of
the board at this time seems to be to lease out the marina's oper-
ations to an individual or business for an amount of money that
will pay or hopefully exceed the debt service obligated to RDA.
The marina is being constructed on city property, obtained
from Amerada Hess, south of First Street and along St. Joseph
Bay.


Taunton Calls County Board "A Den


of Thieves" In Regular Session Tuesday


Board Answers
,- ThatThey-'Went- -
By the Book" On
Points of Contingency

Former Gulf County Judge
David Taunton used Tuesday's
Gulf County Commission meeting
as a forum to wage criticism of the
board's actions particularly aim-
ing at Commissioner Billy Traylor
and Preble-Rish. Consulting
Engineers, Inc. president Ralph
Rish.
Taunton's focus was on two
fronts, the hiring of Preble-Rish,
Inc. as consultants over debris
removal and clean-up resulting
from flood damage and road
paving priorities during the coun-
ty's recent $3 million road paving
project.
At one point during his pre-
sentation, Taunton referred to the
board as a "den of thieves".
With the exception of
Commissioner Jphnny Stanley,
the board took exception to those
charges hurled by Taunton.
"We bid the job out. took the
lowest bid, hired local people, all
under the requirements of
Tallahassee, yet you call us a 'den
of thieves'," Commissioner
Tommy Knox stated.
"When you buy a washing.
machine you shop around and get ,
the best price you can that's
what the board did." Knox said.


Taunton described "the old'
way of doing things" when he

First Phase of New Health Department


Headquarters for Gulf Financed by State

$880,000 Included In New State Budget for Center


During the legislative session,
both the House and the Senate
passed appropriations for
$880,000 of the $1.9 million
requested to build a new health
department in the south end of
Gulf county. Senator Pat Thomas
and Representative Jamey
Westbrook assisted with this pro-
posal and the Governor has
already budgeted this funding, so
most likely it will not be vetoed
next week.
Doug Kent, Administrator of
Gulf County Health Department,
discussed two possible sites being
reviewed for the facility, one
which would be county donated


land and the other being land in
the Ward Ridge area in which a
small payment would be made to
the -Warriner family. Also, since
the funding would be significantly
lower than requested, two phases
of the project would be done, one
this year with the $880,000 and
then with more allocated monies,
a completion phase two next year.
Kent envisions a site in which
the Health Department could be
closer to the schools and the com-
munity. Phase one will include a
building to house the clinic, as
well as separate entities such as
school.health, administration and


WIC.
The current facility, located at
the corner of Long Ave. and
Fourth St., was originally con-
structed in the 1950's. Gulf coun-
ty is rated number seven in the
state to receive a new facility.
Surrounding counties, including
Franklin, Bay, Calhoun and
Jackson, all received funding in a
two year cycle, beginning last
year. Gulf County Health
Department hopes to get the
remainder of funding next year to
complete phase two of the project.
Request for proposals and
selection of an architect could
begin as early as next month.


2,000 tons of debris.
He stated the problem was
there isn't enough garbage
remaining to warrant continuing
the contract and suggested the
county get out of the "dumb" con-
tract.
Commission chairman War-
ren Yeager pointed out that the
board followed FEMA's guidelines
throughout the process and in
fact the bid was awarded contin-
gent upon FEMA's approval.
"I think you're wrong to get on
your bandstand and condemn the
board. I didn't expect this out of
you," Yeager stated.
According to minutes from
the meeting. Commissioner Billy
Traylor made the motion to accept
Preble-Rish's bid, based on the
contingencies. Commissioner
Johnny Stanley seconded the
motion, which passed 4-0;
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr.
was out of town.
FEMA representatives were in
attendance at the special meet-
ings of the b6ai-d and after review-
ing the bids reached an amended
contract agreement of $148,668.
FEMA further broke the contract
into monthly increments noting
that additions or reductions In
personnel will be added or deleted
as reflected on the attended ,
spread sheets.
As County Chief Administra-
tor Don Butler explained it, the
consulting fees should alter in
proportion to the amount of
debris being picked up.
When contacted Wednesday
morning Ralph Rish stated the
amount of debris removed thus
far is considerably below the lev-
els of 1994 (6,600 tons) which is
what his firm based their bid data
on.
He estimated that debris
pick-up would probably last for a
period of two to two and one-half
months at an estimated cost of
approximately $75,000 in con-
sulting fees based on data
received thus far.
Commissioner Johnny Stan-
ley applauded Taunton's 'presen-
tation stating he admired him for
coming forward.
Stanley noted that 90% of the
debris was located in his district
and made a motion to terminate
the contract at the end of 30 days.
Commissioner Nathan Peters
seconded the motion stating that
most of the debris is located In
Mr. Stanley's district.
Commissioner Traylor ques-
tioned whether 90% of the debris
was located in Stanley's district
further stating that there is still a

Dr. Joseph P. Hendrix, M.D.


Ends Medical

Practice


After 45 Years

Cites Health Reasons
For Retirement
After more than 45 years of
practicing medicine in the
community, Dr. Joseph P.
Hendrix, M.D. is closing his prac-
tice (The Medical Clinic) because
of health reasons.
"No one will ever know what
people in this community have
meant to me. They have placed
their confidence and trust in me,
and I have done my best during
these years," Dr. Joe said.
Dr. Joe said he was taking his
doctor's advice by not returning to
his practice, but did express his
interest in the well-being of his
patients and their continued good
health care.
The staff at The Medical
Clinic, at no charge to patients,
will make records available at the
office, or will send them 'to the
doctor of the patient's choice.
As many "old timers" will
recall, when Dr. Joe started prac-
ticing medicine here, he and Dr.
Wayne Hendrix had extended
responsibilities including covering
the hospital emergency room.
Each Dr. Hendrix would alternate
nights and weekends being on
call at the hospital.
During the years, medical
practice has changed and Dr. Joe
and his staff have kept up with
those changes.
His presence at his office will
be sorely missed by his patients
and friends throughout this
community.

Well Wishes!

WE'RE BECOMING ACCUSTOMED to eras coming to an end
in' Port St. Joe during the past several months, but none quite so
personal with such a dramatic impact on our personal lives as
the latest.
Dr. Joseph P. Hendrix closed down his medical practice here
last Thursday, after operating it for over 45 years, uninterru pt-
ed. It was with shock that his myriad of veteran patients learned
that for the first time in the lives of many,, they had a need to lo-
cate another family physician. .
That dynamic duo, Dr. Joe and Dr. Wayne Hendrix [no rela-
tion] almost single-handedly, filled the area's medical needs dur-
ing the late 50s, all through the 60s and during the early 70s.
They' staffed the 'emergency room at the hospital, they staffed
that medical institution; they delivered the babies, they bound
up the wounds and did the surgery, they set the broken bones
and were generally available 24 hours a day during that time.
We personally, remember one time our son had his hand in-
jured while working in the paper mill. Dr. Joe took him into sur-
gery, afterwards, and completely rebuilt that hand which had
been stripped ofall the skin off the palm. Today, you would have
a hard time telling it hadever seen such extensive rebuilding.
THEY WERE, OFFICIALLY recognized by the Cha ber of
Commerce a couple 'of years ago as joint "Citizens of the Year'.:
The entire community owes them a vote of undying "thanks" for
standing in the medical gap until we could interest some other
doctors to help out, The city has since attracted some additional
good, capable doctors, but they are still being compared to those
two iron men of the medical profession, and, we suppose, they
always will be. : '
The decision by Dr. Joe to close his practice came after he
experienced major heart surgery and, in his words, "just
couldn't seem to get back with 'it' ".
The decision probably took him awhile to justify, but to the
rest of us, it.was a sudden shock, coi ning last Thursday, when
he is normally in his office a half day and on the golf course, un-
winding, for the other half.;
WE'RE ALL GOING TO miss you, Joe,,but rest assured that
we all wish you a good and long retirement. You earned it and,
you most certainly deserve it!
The city will more than likely never see another in the medi-
cal profession, come along to fill your shoes and offer your brand
of service, in the foreseeable future. ,



Doing Their "Thing"

ST. JOSEPH BAY CONTINUES to be a matter of mystery
and study by scientists, until it almost appears as if there isn't
anything left to study!
Such is the case with the latest scientific look-see at the bay
and ,fi 4kes itjtik-perfetly! Study afterstudy has Lrovid-
.ed thi.infornaUion-tft the tray remais- npol ,:'d
'an a h,& 'iiciubatoi-f6r' grhIl 'sea nlniials-td be' b6rri' and'thfffe
in.
What is its secret?
The latest survey is an attempt to find out. We've studied
every facet, almost, about what has an effect on the bay. We've
studied Its grasses, the scallop population, its manner of flush-
ing, its salinity and what effect that has on various sea life in the
bay. At one time, an intense study was carried out on the prolific
state of horseshoe crabs in the bay and what there was about it
which they loved.
"The University of South Alabama even buses its students
here to conduct their studies of what a pristine bay is like,
EVEN WITH ALL THE CLAIMS of this and that polluting or
'becoming possible polluters of the bay, it remains pure and pris-
tine. The latest study would research the manner in which water
comes into the bay and whether it is fresh, salt or brackish. It
seems this latest group of scientists must suspect that a great
portion of the water source coming into the bay is from springs!
Elaborate testing is being run to determine if this is indeed
:the truth. It must be so important that it attracts the efforts of
even the federal Environmental Protection Agency. along with
"the Florida:Geological Survey and their willingness to commit
'the efforts of geologists, hydrologists, geochemists and oceanog-
,raphers for upwards of a year to do their thing here.

We'd never heard of tuxedos in
1964. But my cousin Charles, who
lived over by Five Points, had a
suit that near 'bout lit me. And
Uncle F. D. loaned me his good
black tie that had that white swirl
down one side. He, of course, had
to tie it for me. I wore Leon's black
loafers with, those white lightening
bolts on the side--I only hadto
stuff a couple of rolled up Sears
and Roebuck pages in the toe to
make 'emr fit. I was as dressed up
'.as I could get!
Daddy gave me three one dol-
lar bills. "Son, it would, be proper
and polite to take her bitt or a nice
meal before the prom."
Mother gave me a hug for no
reason atsall. I believe if we. had
owned a, camera, it' would have
been a Kodak moment. ..., .
Boys, LaRenda showed' up
with a dress that didn't 'have no

I was excited about the prospects
or worried about the embarrass-
ment,when gravity started working

She' wouldn't go to'Frank's
Dairy Bar for supper. Heck no. I
had to take her out on the by-pass
to the Thunderbird Restaurant.
She stillordered two cheeseburg-

can take the girl out of the country
. She could have got that
same meal at Frank's. for ninety
cents. I had to use up most all of
my three dollars before I could get
her away from that rutabager pie
and whip cream.
'Course, I had a lot more con-

Absolutely without a doubt,
the highlight of the event was to.

some oldsters-who: left the
ground for -heir first time aboard

The Aviat Pitts S2C aerobat-

I've got a couple of ties, I'll give you
three dollars to eat on, but if you're
smart you'll wait for the spread at

you don't have to be in love with

lot of debiis left to be picked up.,
The motion failed on a .3-2
vote with Stanley and Peters vot-
ing in support.
Road Paving
Taunton's second set of
charges were addressed mainly at
Commissioner Billy Traylor.: He
stated Traylor paved Gastlewood
Lane, a road in his "paw-in-law's"
(David Carl Gaskin) private devel-,
opment, in spite of the fact that it
was not a county road.
He further charged that
Traylor had intentionally not
paved Road 5 (access to Gulf
Correctional Institute prison from'
Highway 22) so that workers
would have to travel the 16 miles
round trip and enter on-the Stone
Mill Creek Road, where his store
(Creek Stop Deli) is located at the
intersection of Highway 71 and
Stone Mill Creek Road. '
Taunton said he "surmised":
that as Travlor's reason "knowing
his character". ,
"I can't believe you've'stooped
this low." Traylor said as he
retorted Taunton's statements.
Travylor accused Taunton of
ripping people off on land deals he
made with people he sold proper-
ty to in Overstreet. Traylor said he
had received numerous calls from
that area where Taunton had sold
property and promised to pave'
the roads, but didn't do it.,
Traylor said he had met with
representatives of St. Joe
Corporation, including CEO Peter.
Rummell, trying to work out ease-
ment and right-of-way along Road
5, but had been unsuccessful to
date.
He also stated that the
Castlewood Lane property had
been purchased by Bernie Keller.
When contacted Wednesday
morning, Traylor said, "It's Ironic
that these questions surface at
this time, and during an election
year. It's very similar to what hap-
pened four years ago."

Thanks Everybody
We felt the love of Jesus in
your. big hearts. You people were
so good to me when I lost my
daughter. Thanks to Elder 0. H.
Walker, Elder Hogan, Minister
Riley, Elder Earl Best and to all of
the churches for the food, tele-
phone calls, flowers.
Many thanks to those who
helped serve the food, to the ones
who made out the program, and
to everyone for your concern and
help. I just thank everybody for
what they did. Thanks to
Comforter Funeral Home. May
God bless you all.

Letters
*Dear Editor
Port St. Joe and Gulf County
have done it again: cut off their
noses to spite their faces. After
years of suffering erosion of the
employment base caused by the
net "ban". the sale of the tele-
phone company and paper mill,
and the relocation of the box
plant to Dothan, Alabama, an
Economic Development Commit-
tee was created by the County)
Commission and subsequently
put under the aegis of the Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce.
'Just when this Committee
was beginning to take the first
tentative steps necessary to begin
San economic development pro-
gram that would bring new indus-
tries and new jobs to Gullf County'.
the Chamber of Commerce and its
-political cohorts decided to bring
even-thing to a screeching halt by
firing its Executive Director.
Tamara Laine.
I believe that this unfortunate
and untimely termination was
brought about by three undesir-
able characteristics of a good por-
tion of Gulf County's and Port St.'
:, doe's -populace. ,
First is a rampant xenopho-
bia. Retirees are somewhat wel-
come. as long as they spend their
money here and stay out of poli-
.,. tics and the job market, but,those
who move here to work are out-
siders until the day they die.
Second is the fear of intelli-
gent persons, who might know
more than the lowest common.'

person came here from another

Getting Right

With God
n16 Daniel 12:2 we find,
"And many of those who
sleep in the dust of the
earth shall awake, some to
everlasting life, and some to
Oliver F. Taylor shame and everlasting con-
Visitation Minister, First tempt."
United Methodist Church I used to hae an old
friend who always warned people to get right with
God. As a youngster, I didn't pay much attention to
Him. As I grow older. .I have a better understanding
of His admonishment.
Some people believe:; they'll get right with God
just in time to go to heaven. This is a possibility. The
problem with this is that they missed' out on a life-
time with Christ. Every day I live I want to share the
joy of Christ in my life. Being a Christian is not
denying good times but living in them: The Christian
life is being right with God. Let us walk in Jesus'
steps each day. This is what brings joy in our lives.

MEDITATIONS OF A
S1ounttrg Preacher

By LOWELL F. ADAMS
When
Jesus Comes
s "hall He find faith on the
j earth?"


T".. L HIS WOCkLD seemingly ii m6re bereft'df any vesttige
of compassion and brotherly love, than at any time in the
history of mankind. Thg daily news media reports continually
on the savagery of banf's of bloodthirsty killers, both military
and rebels, in third world countries. Some more civilized areas
not completely immune.
Generally we view these atrocities with dismay, for it
portrays a complete lack of human kindness. But before we pass
judgement on these barbarians. may we look toward ourselves.
In Matthew 7:'1 Jesus says. "Judge not, that you not be judged."
The United States is leading the world in the murder of
unborn babies. An activity that just a few years ago was a
violation of law and of human ethics, Giving such atrocious acts
a different name changes nothing. Ninety-nine percent of this
killing is done for convenience, so someone will not be
obligated with nurturing the unwanted little one. Jesus says in
Matthew 25:40, "as you have done it unto the least of these, my
brethren, you have done it unro me." He also says in Luke
18:16 of such infants and children is the Kingdom of God.
We have sunk to dismal lows in too many areas of our
lives in America. Would you have 'ever imagined that this
nation,, which was said to be ordained of God, during its early
existence, would in this sad era, completely remove any
recognition of Him from our public life? Not only that, but
educational policies seem to encourage our children to further
irritate the situation by teaching them it is wrong to pray to God,
but alright to engage in illicit sex, which that same God warns
against? When you and I were youngsters. we often had the
benefit of chapel services to begin the school day. We were
taught that sex out of wedlock was sinful and wrong. Abortion
,was not a problem in those days.,
When we were youngsters, the government was a source of
moral and ethical'encouragement. Now it seems, with some few
exceptions, cesspools of unrighteousness, both individually and
collectively. Would ethical government encourage it's citizens
to seek wealth and happiness through gambling?
We will surely face a reckoning on our depravity one day!

Extra



Teeth


Most of us have to worry
about having too few teeth,
but there are children whose
problem is that they have
too many.
These extra teeth that
may develop in your child's
mouth are known as
SUPERNUMERARY
TEETH: They can occur
singly or, in multiples and
are usually found in the
upper front area of a child's
mouth. 'Occasionally they
occur elsewhere as in the
lower molar area.
These extra teeth usual-
ly don't erupt, but are often
located in a position that


prevents proper eruption of
permanent teeth.
The primary means of
detection of supernumery
teeth is by x-ray. As with"
ankylosed teeth (primary
teeth which fail to fall out),
this situation must be diag-
nosed and evaluated early
to avoid later problems with
eruption and malocclusion.
Generally, dentists pre-
fer to remove supernumer-
ary teeth.

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

Class Goes to Court


Annette Mingc r's fifth grade class, of the
Port St. Joe Elementary School, participated
in a field trip to the Gulf County Court-
house, last week, where Judge Robert M.
Moore demonstrated to the students the
workings of the courtroom during an actual
trial. He identified the different positions
held by officials and told their function dur-
ing a trial.
Shown above are the courtroom officers.


1997 "Crime

In Florida

Report Released
The annual Crime in Florida
report released last week by the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement indicates that crime in
Florida is remaining at a relative-
ly constant level. In 1997, the
overall crime rate dropped by
2.6% compareU to 1996.
This slight decline marks the
: 6th year in a row that Florida has
experienced a drop in the stan-
dard crime rate. In addition, Flor-
ida's violent crime rate also fell by
approximately 2.4%, marking a
decrease in this category for the
past five years.
Juvenile crime continues to
be a concern In Florida. The num-
ber of Juveniles arrested for mur-
..... der.-rsex s enisens-dru~gr-andw-elo <--
bery all rose in 1997.
In the overall category of vio-
lent crimes, murders are down
5.8% from 1996. This represents
6.9 murders per 100,000 popula-
Lion. This is the lowest murder
rate recorded for the state since
1933. However, forcible sex of-
fenses rose by just over 2%. '
"While we can be somewhat
encouraged by these latest num-
bers, we must all be aware that
our state is constantly facing the
challenge of far too many violent
criminals and teen offenders. In
addition, there is an explosion of
a new generation of criminals
who are sophisticated in using
computer technology and com-
plex fraud scams to victimize our
citizens, businesses, and our
state. We must remain vigilant in
our efforts by prioritizing public
safety issues in Florida," said
FDLE Commissioner Tim Moore.
In the area of domestic vio-
lence, the number of incidents
and arrests are up this year. This
may indicate that victims are
more willing to report abuse to
law enforcement. In 1997, domes-
tic violence arrests rose 4.3% in
Florida, and reported domestic vi-
olence offenses increased by
2.7%. In fact, nearly 41% of cer-
tain offenses, including murder,
rape, and assault, were domestic
violence related.
This year's report contains
statistics from 377 of Florida's
394 local law enforcement agen-
cies. Of the 17 agencies that did
not report, their combined popu-
lations represent less than 1% of
Florida's total population.

An alcoholic goes through
three phases. according to John
Frothingbam. himself an active
alcoholic and now a lecturer and
counselor and teacher of alcohol-
ics who wish to quit drinking.
Frothingham was speaking to the
Rotary Club.
Relating from his own experi-
ence, FroLhingham said he took
",his first drink when he was 19
.'ears old and In college. He said
..he was at a dance and not danc-
hg very well. The girl he was with
suggested he take a couple of
drinks "to loosen up", which he
dl id. '
After graduation, he joined
the Marines and continued to
drink, "to loosen up". "I' stayed
pretty loose," he said.
"Alcoholics never go away.
They are with you until they--or
you--diel" the speaker said. 'The
*.alcoholic must make up his mind
to seek help for his problem, after
he realizes he has a problem with
the bottle. That help is available
from different support groups,"
Frothingham said.
He stated that alcohol is
made up of something which has
rotted or spoiled. "The alcohol re-
sults when grain ferments." he
* said. "People start drinking and
keep drinking in order to change
the way they feel. They keep
drinking to maintain that differ-
ence in feeling."
The first stage for an alcohol-
ic 1s when you have or are getting
over a dr-unk and don't remember
part of what you did the night be-
fore, while you were drinking.
Stage two in the life of an al-
Scoholic is when you suspect your
drinking might cause a problem
Said you attempt to change your
daily drinking habits to prove
that you still have control. You
hide your supply and have gran-
dlise 'feelings when you are
.drAnking.. "For Instance," the
speaker: said, "I was convinced
that I won the battle of Guadalca-
nal by myself and me and one
other'Marine took Iwo Jima," the
speaker quipped.
S:" 'The third phase of an alcohol-
I, i is when y.ou hit bottom. You re-

Skills' learned 'through peer
mediation can be used not only n
the schools, but in the students
neighborhoods and throughout
their lives.
Peer mediation: programs:
alone won't end school violence.
But they can go a long way toward
returning us to the more respect-'
ful approach to human interac-
into one another on the street. We
pursue our personal and busi-
ness agendas without the slight-
est regard for other people. Our
children see that we care little for
our fellow Americans.
Similarly, our politicians play
scorched earth games with one
another and generally demon-
strate a supreme disregard for
civil or reasoned discourse. There
Is no limit to what our leaders will
say about one another. And guess
what-there are children listening
and watching
The average child entering
fifth grade has seen hundreds of
thousands of acts of violence on
television. This barrage of violence
continues throughout their school
years, and many psychologists
believe that it desensitizes youth
to witnessing violence.
When this omnipresent vio-
lence is coupled with the demon-
strated incivility among adults
and the easy availability of guns
in our nation, tragedy can result.
The tragic incident in the
Arkansas schoolyard provides 'us
an excellent opportunity to reflect
on what we can do. as a society,
to lower the decibel level and
encourage constructive discourse
and problem solving.
We must move toward a more
civil society. We need to turn
down" the volume on our voices,
remove the hate from our speech,
and begin to teach a radical con-
cept to our children- that each
human being has value, and that
such value deserves respect.
Peer mediation programs in
schools can help. They teach stu-
dents how to listen to one anoth-
er, how to solve conflict without
-hIolence, how to manage anger,
Somtmtinicaton skill's self
respect, trust, and how to express
feelings in a constructive manner.
The American Bar Association
is doing its small share to pro-
mote peer mediation-volunteer
lawyers in 21 cities are working to
bring peer mediation to schools
that cannot afford to hire pri-
vate organization to implement a
program. or that do not have vol-
unteer programs available in their
tion we seem to have lost. Until

It's so ironic. Yes, we all
know that smoking causes all
'kinds of cancer; but what about
those people that get second
hand smoke? They could get
cancer too, you kno%%. Mainly it's
those who are children %who have
parents that smoke. (like me and
.other friends who shall remain
nameless). We inhale so much
discarded smoke that it's hard to
say if. we will ever' grow up.
Please, act now, out time is run-

I think I'm going to choke.
Please stop! Your hurting me.
And my body, you clog my

No, No, I don't think so.
Think about you, think about

I'm Dying From
Your Smoke,
Poem by Beth Cordova
I'm dying from your smoke,
don't make me choke,
S I. rather 'be beat, like frozen
meat. .
then waste my time, with
someone committing a crime,
so go away and don't play,
because I rather croke than
smell your smoke.

l'm Dying .From
Your Smoke
by Megan Todd, PSJE
Once there was a little boy
named Jack. He was very athlet-
ic and sweet, but he had a prob-
lem that he never told anyone.
He was dying from his parents
second-hand smoke. His friends
knew. his parents smoked, but
they didn't know he was dying.
He wouldn't tell anyone, because
he loved his parents to much.
On the last day of school,
before summer, one of Jack's
friends named John asked him
to come over and play after
school. He said yes. When he
went over to John's house,
John's sister, Jenna said he
smelled like ashes He knew she
was right, but he didn't'say any-
thing. They played with X-men,
and got into the pool. Then Jack
blurted out his secret, and John
stared in amazement!, ,w .
The next year Jack's.parents
stopped smoking. Jack lived a
long life! THE END

"I'm Dying From Your Smoke"
By
Blake Rish
As Herb lay in the hospital bed, he olten thought of


what he had been told when he was a student In school.
But like so many of,his friends, he thought smoking was,
'cool.' He never thought his habit would bring him to where
he was today. "Nurse", said Herb, "When is the doctor
coming In? I want to go home?" "Soon, Mr. Granger. I
believe he's in Room 345. Now try to rest." Nurse Holmby
sadly shook her head and thought, "Mr. Granger, if you
make it through today, you'll be lucky." Herb now reflected
on his life and how he wished he'd never picked up that first
cigarette. He thought his cough was getting much worse
and he now had to have oxygen all the time. The hospital
said he could walk down to the garden, but it was too much
trouble to drag that lank along. If only...but it was too late
for Herb. The funeral was very nice. Now do you know who
wasn't there? His absence was noticed by no one in
