Phase One of

Project Set for

St. Joe Beach
Geri-Care Assisted Living and
Outpatient Center formally
announced plans to construct
phase one of the development at
St. Joe Beach during a special
county commission meeting held
Monday afternoon.
Former Gulf County resident,
Bill Williams (CEO/owner of
Integras Rehab and Management
Services, Ala.), outlined plans to
build the first of four planned 16-
bed 8.500 square foot assisted liv-
ing units. An adjacent 4,500
square foot physician and rehab
center will also be built as part of
the development.
He and his partner, Bert
McCrearv (Enterprise. Ala.) want
to maintain the pristine look of
the area as much as possible as
the center is constructed.
Williams estimated eight to
15 jobs would be created when
the facility is complete. Positions
would be filled for nursing,
administration, operational and
physicians to start the center.
Construction should get
underway within the next 30 to
45 days and will take the contrac-
tor eight to 10 months to com-
plete.
Williams offered special
thanks to the Gulf County com-
missioners and Congressman
Allen Boyd for helping him over-
come several obstacles that have

Scallops In Season!


It's here!
All of the waiting Is over. The long anticipated
first day of scallop season has finally arrived. Local
and visiting scallopers hit the waters of St. Joseph
Bay seeking those sweet tender mollusks early
Wednesday morning.
How many activities can a person do in which
they can enjoy the beauty of one of nature's finest
wonders (St. Joseph Bay). get a good brisk exercise
snorkeling or wading in search of scallops, enjoy the
camaraderie of friends and family, and reap the
beauty of one of nature's finest delicacies.
Maybe that's the reason it's so popular. It's the


perfect outdoor summer activity.
According to the Florida Marine Patrol, all infor-
mation provided to them, at this point in time, indi-
cates the season and bag limits will remain the
same as last year. beginning July Ist and running
through September 10th.
Eckley and Donna Sanders, managers of
Presnell's Marina said their unofficial survey of the
bay indicates scallop counts appear to be down this
year and small in size.
They were a bit too busy Wednesday morning to
elaborate too much.

Florida Coast Paper Co. Works Wrinkles Out of

New Product-Now Working on 16,000 Ton Order


A lot of things have changed
at Florida Coast Paper Company
recently as company officials and
employees have experimented
into new market areas to help
maintain production stability.
FCPC is currently making its
first production run of 16,000
tons of white paper plate material
for newly established customers.
General Manager Ferrel Allen


said the mill has done extensive
planning and testing before get-

No. 1 Paper Machine Crew Successful In Paper Plate Stock Endeavor.


Wewahitchka city commis-
sioners began taildng a whole dif-
ferent approach to garbage collec-
tion and the re-roofing of City Hall
during their regular meeting held
last Monday.
One of the main reasons the
board had advertised for bids to
pick up garbage and yard debris
was because DEP has told them
they could no longer haul yard
debris to the Wetappo Creek


Landfill. This forced the city to
begin looking at other options
including pick-up and removal
service, in conjunction with
garbage pick-up.
City Manager Don Minchew
reported that an agreement has
been reached with DEP to allow
the city to compost yard debris
only at another site.

Fireworks!

GOVERNOR LAWTON CHILES issued a gubernatorial an-
nouncement banning fireworks sales and use, the end of last
week. Using the dry conditions throughout the state of Florida
as an excuse, he issued the special governor's order.
Issuing such an' order, banning private use, was needed in
our opinion, even if we are one of a minority who favors the sale
of fireworks though they are dangerous for youth to use. Kids
enjoy the heck out of fireworks, too! Some of my fondest memo-
ries of shooting off fireworks on the Fourth of July and at Christ-
mas time. We remember that. we had a ball Not the danger in-
volved, but the fun portion of the holidays.
IT'S TO THE CITY'S credit that it is going to sponsor and
make arrangements for a fireworks display, suitable for the Inde-
pendence Day celebration. The Merchants' Association is joining.
in with the celebration and sponsoring several other activities
which go along with a holiday celebration. All in all, it:should
furnish the people of the community a good time and put 'mean-
ing' into the national holiday.
The Fourth is a special holiday for all Americans; -aday of.re-
membering, once again, just what went into a rag-tag, nation full
of citizens banding together to win their freedom from a giant
parent nation. They did what was necessary to get the job done
and we have been celebrating it ever since.
AT THEIR MEETING, last week, the Gulf County Commis-
sion passed an emergency ordinance, urging caution in the pri-
vate use of fireworks, due to the Under dry conditions of our
woodlands causing an ever-present danger from fire.
The county hasjust undergone a particularly destructive for-
est fire, which should cause us all to support the thought be-
hind the new emergency ordinance. Gulf County owes Its eco-
nomic well-being to Its forest lands, giving its people extra
incentive to stay away from forest fire producing activities.
Both incorporated communities within the county, as well as
Mexico Beach, are using experts to set off a large amount of py-
rotechnic pieces they have purchased to carry out the tradition
. of the holiday to the satisfaction of the. people.
We hope you attend and enjoy one of the three spectaculars,
. being provided solely for your enjoyment.



Knotty Subject

TO TAX OR NOT TO TAX, that is the question; and a knotty
subject it is, tool The 'bed tax' has become a popular tax with
tourist communities and are such favorites, strictly by the na-
ture of the tax's nickname 'bed tax'!
Nobody pays a 'bed tax' but tourists. Local people-those eli-
gible to vote on a bed tax-are exempt from paying them, unless
they spend their vacation in a community which has had its res-
idents vote in favor of levying such a tax.
It's an easy revenue source to approve. Also it's a fairly lucra-
tiveource of revenue and one which provides little resistance
from he oes' having to' djay. It's-aimost.i-w.vin- irinituati x-
cept for the ones having to collect the tax. We can see where this
might be a little aggravating to have to keep up with.
BUT, SINCE THE ONES collecting the tax will be the ones to
benefit directly from the tax, collection of the funds should be no
more than a slight nuisance to them.
The tax has a two-fold reason for local residents to approve
its creation. It will furnish the money to Improve our tourist-
attraction facilities from the very persons who the improvements
will directly affect. Our tourists should be the ones most inter-
ested in facilities being improved in their favorite playground.
We can see an opposite viewpoint to the 'bed tax' also.
We spend many thousands of our own dollars, trying to at-
tract more and more tourists the'area, indicating that they are
desired. Hence, if we desire their presence enough to spend good
money Inviting..them here, there must be a reason: the reason
being to line our pockets with 'fresh new money.
SO, YOU SEE, this issue Isn't one to be thought of lightly. It
should be handled seriously, and given thoughtful considera-
tion, as should all taxing matters. Taxes. have a habit of coming
to stay; even growing This 'bed tax' is an answer to a thorny
need but it isn't to be taken lightly, even if it appears as if some-
ione else has to pay it. The money would be earmarked for a spe-
cific purpose. That purpose is to enhance the tourist business!

They've got twenty or thirty guys

ninety minutes and the score ends

SThe most interesting thing I've
observed about this World Cup
stuff is the fight in the stands dur-
ing the game. Or the pushing.
pulling, rock-throwing, name-
calling and stabbings in the street
afterwards. 'Course, in a way you
can't hardly blame 'em. If I'd sat
out there in that hot sun all day
and only seen one point . I'd
be ready for a little action, tool
Pride in your country is, an
absolutely wonderful thing. I
applaud them forCthat. And I cer-
tainly acknowledge that I don't
understand anything about' the
way soccer is viewed by the world
community. But If any nation
thinks we're over here living and
dying with a soccer match, then
they've been breathing too much
camel breath.
The game, has; not captured
the hearts of Americans likeimany
promoters have wished.. They don't
seem to uncderst.-nd why. It's sim-
ple--it's, not an, American game!
It's kinda like the big push a
few years back to put us all on the
metric system.
I'll tell you another reason it
never caught on. I grew up in a
,place so small the town's popula-
tion sign was a chalk board. For
entertainment we'd sit in the park
and watch the traffic light change.

by the overpass and count the out
of'state cars that passed. We'd spit
at a crack in the sidewalk for
hours. We threw dirt clods 'at trees.
W,We were. not about to waste our
'"tie on soccer . .

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOEB, FL THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1998 PAGI


Old Glory

I am the flag of the United States of America.
I was conceived in the dreams of liberty; and in the hopes of
freedom. I was designed by the hands of Betsy Ross, and her
sewing basket was my cradle. Though I was never an orphan, I
was adopted by the Continental Congress in 1777 and pro-
claimed the national emblem of a nation newly born on this con-
tinent, fighting valiantly for survival and destined to bring to all
mankind a new concept of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happi-
ness.
I have been many places and seen many things. I have wit-
nessed every event of American history. I was there when they
fired the shot heard 'round the world. I was there in the late twi-
light at Fort McHenry and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the
Immortal "Star Spangled Banner", now our national anthem.
I saw Molly Pitcher take the cannon swab from the hands of
her dead husband and help carry on the fight for freedom. I felt
the biting cold at Valley Forge, and gave warmth and comfort to
General Washington and his tired and hungry Continental Army.
I rode with Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys. I saw
the signal that started the midnight ride of Paul Revere,.
I was flown above the decks of Old Ironsides, and'from the
masts of the Yankee and China Clippers.
I blazed the trail with Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. I led
the settlers going West, and crossed Death Valley in a covered
wagon .
I was carried through the Halls of Montezuma to the shores
of Tripoli by the United States Marines. Once I fell to the ground
at 'Custer's Last Stand, and there were no living hands left to pick
me, up
I galloped up the slopes of San Juan Hill with Teddy
Roosevelt and,the Rough Riders of the United States Cavalry. I

stayed with the boys until it was over, over there, and on the bat-
tlefields of the Marne, St. Michael, and the Argonne Forest. I saw
many of the young men of our nation fall and lie still in death.
They had given their last full measures of devotion. The war was
over for them forever; and I kept my lonely
vigil over their graves
and stayed to watch the
poppies grow amid the
crosses, row on row, on
Flanders Field. I was
raised by five brave
icmen during the Battle
of Iwo Jima.
I waved farewell
to the four immortal
chaplains ho went
down with their
ship, having given
Their life jackets to,'oth-
s Iers on the ship. I landed with
our troops at Anzio, I was with those
who went up Pork Chop Hill. I was in Korea, and in the
rice patties of Vietnam.
I introduced Saddam Hussein to the, Desert Storm. I even
went to the moon with the astronauts, and I stand there as a
reminder of the Yankee determination to catch and pass any
nation that tries to out do my people.
I am many things to many people. I am an inseparable link
in the chain that binds men to God and country; each link weld-
ed in the fires of purity by the hands of God, Himself. And:
because I am on the side of God, the godless would destroy me,
but they dare not, because I am protected by the mighty land


armies of the nation, the powerful and deadly fleet of the Navy
and the screaming eagles of the Air Force, watching and waiting
to sweep down and destroy anything that would harm me.
To some, I am yesterday, today, and tomorrow; to others, I
am a glorious child, to some a grand old man or a most gracious
lady. I have several names. I am called "The Red, White and
Blue," "The Star-Spangled Banner," "The Stars and Stripes," but
I am most commonly known by a nickname given me by an old
sea captain, who called me "Old Glory."
I have not changed much in my 200 years. I still have my
original 13 stripes, but, as each state came into the union, a new
star was proudly added to the constellation of my blue field. It
started with 13 stars; now there are 50.
Many more things I would like to tell you, but we haven't
time. However, I do want to see you again. I am easyto find. I am
everywhere, I am in the hopes of the poor, in the mansions of the
rich, in Independence Hall with the Declaration of Independence
and the Liberty Bell, I am in the White House with the President,
I am in all the churches, cathedrals and synagogues, in the
Council of the Boy and Girl Scouts of America. in all the schools
where they pledge allegiance to me.
I, draped the caskets of our nation's heroes, borne to their
last resting place;: the caskets of presidents, generals, admirals.
humble privates and the Unknown Soldier. Wherever free men
gather, wherever there is justice, equality, faith, hope, charity,
truth or brotherly love, there too, am I.
May history never write my obituary, for I am the Stars and
Stripes FOREVER.

Bill Williams announced fur-

Center (TOC) to provide some of
those services to the panhandle

Rick Williams (local resident

area, it will allow as much care as
possible to be done locally," Rick
Williams said.
"Our goal Is to enhance med-'

Rick pointed out the service
would be especially beneficial to
athletes in the region needing
rehab or similar special care, sav-
ing them a trip to Tallahassee in
many cases.

Allen said one of the major
differences was special pulp
requirements that include a 30%
hardwood mix to the usual pine
pulp processed at the mill. The
hardwood is bought, already
processed, and. added, in the-
... proper proportions, to the mill's
pulp processing operations.
"It involved the whole mill
working together to meet these
special requirements,"Allen said.
Moisture content, fiber align-

had to be addressed in order to

Keep Morally

Correct Stance
Dear Editor,
I am a former resident of Port-
St. Joe and still maintain my sub-
scription to The Star. Until now,:
The Star always had a wholesome .
content. I am writing in reference
to the column entitled "AIDS!..
Update". I am appalled at the con- .
tent of the AIDS Update column.-j ,
While it is true that AIDS is a,:
nationwide epidemic, with many-
thousands of people infected and
suffering, the column makes ref-i
erence to a person's "partner",.
and not to a person's spouse. In,
many cases, AIDS is the conse-
quence of an immoral sexual rela-
tionship. One of the most effective
ways to prevent the spread of the
disease is through abstaining
from sexual relationships until
marriage, and remaining faithful
in a one man-one woman mar-
riage.
I would hope that The Star
will review and edit columns that
appear in it in the future, in order
to maintain the morally correct
stance that it has had these many
years
Sincerely,
/s/ Brad Pridgeon

IAA~E 4A THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. JULY 2. 1998


Dear Counselor:
I have three boys, ages 16, 14
and 13. Lately, -the 16 year old
has been extremely, bad. He has
started to stay out past his curfew
and act like I have no right to
punish him. He is also stealing,
lying and the list goes on. I don't
know what to do with him.
The other boys know that
their brother has become a "bad
kid" in my opinion. I am so afraid
that my other kids will start act-
ing like him. I know how much an
older brother can influence you.
I feel like my only option is to
send my 16 year old to military
school or a boarding school. If you
have any other ideas, please let
me know.
Thank you, Burdened Mom
Dear Burdened Mom,
Your concerns are actually
not uncommon. You do, however,
have good cause for concern.
Raising children is a taxing duty,
as your story highlights.
First, remember that you are
the parent. This statement' is
meant to imply that you are the
authority and also the role model
for your impressionable, young
minds. Do not feel as if you
should not discipline (appropri-
ately, of course) your children.
They, are in need of your parental.
guidance. Guidance can come in
the form of immediate correction
or example setting.
"Discipline" can be a confus-
ing word for some parents. This
word, from a mental health stand-
point, should mean "caring cor-
rection." In your case, caring cor-
rection could mean that you do
not allow your child to participate
in outside activities for one week
after breaking curfew. Instead,
the time could be used for some
type of family activity like, game
play or movie time.
As for the stealing, make a
rule that when an item is stolen,
that item will be returned in per-
son and a letter of apology will
accompany the item. When the
child is caught in a lie, punish
him for the lie as well as for the
behavior he was likely to be
attempting to conceal (since it was
probably inappropriate and pun-


The Wewahltchka High
School Class of 1968 has set the
final plans for the upcoming re-
union. A family picnic is sched-
uled for 12:00 noon at Lake Alice
Park on Saturday, June I1.
This is a "bring your own bas-
ket" affair with a grill being pro-
vided for those wishing to cook
hot dogs or hamburgers. At 7:00
p.m., a dinner at The Fish House
Restaurant on Mexico Beach will
take place. Those attending will
order from the menu.
Members of the class are In-
viting graduates from other class-
es, faculty, administration, or
anyone who would like to join
them as they reminisce. Please


ishable in the first place.)
Remember to always be con-
sistent and not faltering. This
concept in itself is quite trying,
but the results you see will be
worth the effort.
Furthermore, we must be
careful not to place character
judgments on our children. More
specifically, make sure your chil-
dren understand that they are
being punished for the inappro-
priate behavior and not because
they are "bad kids." This notion
can also be easily implied by your
actions; we should take all pre-
cautions to avoid this.
True, the oldest brother has
influence over the younger broth-
ers, however, all of the children
are continuously watching you.
The implications of your actions
are passed down to your off-
spring: your children are sure to
act accordingly in their own situa-1
tions.
Therefore, I strongly encour-
age you to expend all other
resources before you begin the
search for boarding school or mil-
itary school. I further encourage
you to initiate counseling. This,
(besides the obvious benefit), will
inadvertently state that you do
care for your family and are will-
ing to actively participate in heal-
ing that unit.
In short, use tact in discipline
and set a good example. Your role
as parent will sometimes be diffi-
cult. If you are willing to work
through those times, it will prove
worthwhile in the future. If you
would like to initiate counseling
services, you can contact us at
227-1145 for an appointment or
for a referral. Best wishes to you
and your family.

Making Time to Exercise


Just Got a Little Easier


Fitting aerobic exercise and
weight training into busy sched-
.ules may have just gotten easier.
Updated national exercise
guidelines released by the Ameri-
can College of Sports Medicine on
Wednesday, June 3, in Orlando
show breaking up aerobic exer-
cise into three 10-minute ses-
sions throughout the day can be
just as effective as one 30 minute
session.
In addition, performing one
set of weight lifting exercises, or
eight to 12 repetitions, will build
the same muscle endurance and
strength as doing multiple sets,
said University of Florida exercise
physiologist Michael L. Pollock.
New to the national guide-
lines. last updated in 1990, is the
recommendation to perform

"These current guidelines in-
clude flexibility exercises and
modifications to aerobic and
weight training based on current
research that will help the aver-
age person adhere to a fitness
program."
Pollock has served as chair of
this ACSM-sponsored group since
the first guidelines were an-
nounced 20 years ago. The com-
mittee is made up of a select
group of professionals, represent-
ing a wide range of exercise ex-
pertise. The national guidelines
are updated every 10 to 12 years
based on the committee's review
of published scientific research.
Formerly, the guidelines rec-
ommend 20 to 60 consecutive
minutes of aerobic activity three
to five days per week. This includ-
ed a broad range of activities
such as walking, hiking, cross-
country skiing, jogging, and aero-
bic dance.
"The literature review now
shows that you can break up aer-
obic exercise into shorter ses-
sions repeated throughout the
day and achieve the same bene-
fits as if you've done one consecu-
tive session. This is very helpful
for adherence to a fitness pro-
gram because the number one
reason people drop out of an ex-
ercise program is because of lack
of time," Pollock said.
Also helpful to adherence is


the recommendation that one
repetition of weight exercises two
to three times a week will achieve
the same benefits as performing
multiple sets. This is a suggested
exercise approach for an average
person interested in building
muscle strength and endurance,
but who is not interested in be-
coming a bodybuilder.
"There is more research to
support this statement now than
there was in 1990, when it was
first recommended. Eight to 12
exercises of one set each, hitting
the major muscle groups in the
upper and lower body, can be
done in 20 minutes--it's a very
efficient program."
Also recommended -now are

stretching exercises to increase
muscle and, tendon flexibility
which will help an individual to
maintain range of motion and
function throughout life.
For example, the guidelines
recommend doing static stretches
held 10 to 30 seconds to point Of
mild discomfort, repeating them
four times per muscle group, two
to three days a week.
"We're also trying -to create
well-rounded, streamlined exer-
cise guidelines tlhat help show
people what is needed and that
provides advice oit how to custo-
mize an exercise program to fit in-
dividual needs while achieving
maximum benefits."

Declaring Your Independence from Drunken Driving


Independence Day is more
than a celebration of our nation's


freedom; it's a celebration of
everything American. All over the


United States, people will be firing
up their grills and inviting friends,

neighbors and relatives over for
parties to honor the red, white
and blue.
Such celebrations can be
great fun. but: excessive con-
sumption of alcohol can ruin
those good times. Make sure your
guests don t over-indulge their
thirst with alcohol and then get
behind the wheel of an automo-
bile.
"We all cherish our freedom
and the pursuit of happiness,"
said Walter Smith, assistant vice
president of ; Government
Employees Insurance Company
(GEICO). "but with those things
must come responsibility.
Thousands of people die in alco-
hol-related accidents every year.
The summer months are the most
dangerous, and Independence
Day Is one of the deadliest days. If
you must serve alcohol at your
cookouts-July 4 and throughout
the year-protect your friends
and family by serving it responsi-
bly."
Smith offered the following
tips to help hosts ensure their
guests' safety.
." .'. eHave plenty of non-alcoholic
drinks available and make sure
', your guests know they have alpo-
hol-free options., There are higlh-
quality nonalcoholic beers and.
wines on the market.
*Offer your guests food fre-
quently to balance th.ir drinking.
Serve food in waves' to encourage
return trips to the table, or pass
trays of food among your guests.
S *Make sure. your menu
includes plenty of protein-rich
items and starchy foods (cheese.
pizza and seafood are good choic-
es). These foods will slow the
absorption of alcohol into the
bloodstream.
*Avoid serving salty or sweet
fo6ds that tend to 'make people'
thirsty. 'Offer low calorie foods.
like cut-up vegetables. to encour-
age dieters to eat as well as drink.'


WorW-Cla


Il


*Close the bar at least an
hour before the party is supposed
to end.
"As the host, it's your duty to
see to your guests' safety," Smith
said. "Should someone become
impaired despite your best efforts,
arrange a safe ride home for that
person, either with another guest


who's sober, or in a cab. If the
impaired guest insists on trying to
drive, take his or her car keys.
Your guest may be upset or angry
initially, but in the morning he or
she will still be alive-and grateful
for your concern."

MEDITATIONS OF A
ounttru Preacher

By LOWELL F. ADAMS

Does Science .
DisprQve
God's *drd?
"Avoid opposutioqrps Ofscience,
falsely so called. ":.. 1
i a4- -Wo- I Timrothy 6:20

A3T MIGHT SEEM TO SOME PEOPLE that Scientists
are proving the earth is much older than The Bible says it is.
The trouble with this ideo is The Bible does not say how
old the earth is. It does say, '"1-the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth."' But "The Beginning" is an unknown
age. God created both heaven and earth, and all the inhabitants
of the earth in seven days. The Bible also informs us with God a
thousand years is as a day. Maybe even thousands of years.
Many eminent scientists faithfully. honor God with their
solid faith in His Truth. However many other scientists are busy
trying to disprove the Truth of God's Word.
God warns His children of this in 1 Timothy 6:20 and 21.
"Timothy, keep'thait 'which is committed to thy. trust, avoiding
profane and vain babblings and opposition of science falsely
so called." In other words, God is telling us that science which
opposes His Truth is false science.
God does not tell us everything we want to know. He tells
us what we need to know in -order to recognize our need for a
Savior. The Old Testament is the history of a nation chosen to
bring that Savior into the world. The New Testament tells us
about the coming of that Savior, and how we may be able to
recognize and know Him.
That Savior, Jesus Christ. is the very heart of both the New
Testament and the Old Testament. The Old Testament is full of ,
the promise of His soon coming. The New Testament is the
fulfillment of that promise.
Not only is Jesus the center and heart of The Bible, He is
also the center and heart of human history. The world's
calendar defines dates by the birth and death of Jesus.
There is not room here to name them, but untold numbers
of history's great leaders have trusted God's Truth. May we not
be deceived by "scientific discoveries.."
Matthew 24:24 warns us "There shall arise false' prophets,
and shall show great signs and t orders; insomuch that, if it
were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
Dear friend, do not be deceived by scientific imagination.

options to be considered at their
next meeting. They will probably
further look at the composting
options and make a final decision.
The board will also discuss'
what to do with the three bids
already received for garbage pick-
up service. Those bids came in
higher than the city's current
pick-up fees contract with City
Waste (formerly Argus).
Minchew said among the
options that might be considered
would be to renew the current
contract with City Waste, accept
the low bid for pick-up service,
negotiate yard debris pick-up out
of the bid offerings, or reject all
:bids and rebid the contract.
Re-Roof City Hall
Commissioners have run into
a hitch with bids to re-roof
WVewa's City hall with a new metal
pitched roof to replace the exist-
ing flat roof.
When the contractor physi-
cally evaluated the building's roof,
s it was discovered it did not match
n the original drawings that the job
ir was bid from. Minchew said this
would force a change in the scope
of the metal roofs design.
Commissioners will probably
consider rebidding the project at
their next board meeting and
evaluate their options.

New Ruling on
Speckled Perch
On July I the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
(GFC) began to enforce a new dal-
ly bag limit on black crappie
(speckled perch).
The five-member commission
voted in March to establish a dai-
ly bag limit of 25 black crappie
statewide. Previously, black crap-
pie counted in the daily bag limit
of 50 panfish, but under the new
rule, anglers will be able to catch
the daily limit of 25 crappie in ad-
dition to the daily limit of 50 pan-
fish (bream).
Ed Moyer, GFC fisheries di-
rector said the new rule is the
first step to building quality fish-
ing lakes for black crappie. Re-
ducing the bag limit will enable
them to better manage .:black
crappie populations by allocating
the resource among more anglers.
New crappie restrictions on
Lake Monroe. considered one of
the top crappie lakes in the state.
are expected to provide anglers
with quality fishing because of
the reduction in bag limit and a
12-inch minimum size limit.
Moyer hopes this new ap-
proach to managing crappie will
increase angler interest In high-
quality crappie fishing.
In addition, the commission
eliminated the daily bag limit for
chain and redfin pickerel.

Tooth

Injuries


People with healthy
mouths rarely have painful
emergencies. However, any-
one can suffer a blow or trau-
ma which calls for immediate
treatment.
Perhaps the most com-
mon is the fractured tooth. If
the pulp is exposed, there is
the danger of infection and
further damage. A dressing
should be applied to the tooth
as soon as possible after the
fracture occurs, and a dentist
consulted at once.
The second most com-
mon injury is the blow which
does not fracture but loosens
teeth. If a tooth is loose, it
means that the connective
tissue fibers holding the ieeth


are damaged. Very often, in
order to prevent further harm,
the tooth must be immobi-
lized for a period of time to
allow these fibers to heal.
A fairly rare but very dra-
matic injury is the tooth which
is knocked out of the bone in
-one piece. The only chance
Sof keeping the tooth is to
have it reimplanted IMMEDI-
ATELY after injury. Until this
is done, keep the tooth moist,
but do not clean off any tis-
sues.

Pre d as a public service to pro-
mote better dental health. From the
office of FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.,

Federal and Postal Job Scams... From Tip-Offs to Rip Offs


You don't have to pay for
information about job vacancies
with the U.S. Government or U.S.
Postal Service. But scam artists
are victimizing many Americans
by selling information about fed-
eral job opportunities.
These scam artists advertise
In the classified sections of news-
papers and offer-for a fee-to
help job seekers find and apply
for federal jobs. Some fraudulent
companies even try to confuse
consumers by using names like
the "U.S. Agency. for Career
Advancement," or the "Postal
Employment Service," which
sound like federal agencies.
Scam artists' may lie about'
the availability of federal Job
openings in your area. For exam-
ile, the Postal Service has few
vacancies for career positions. For
many of the entry jbbs you must
take a written examination first,
Test 470.
- Postal Service hiring takes
place through 85 district offices at
the local level. 'If a private party
tells you that postal Jobs are
available, check with the Postal
Service to determine if hiring is
taking place and if the exam is
required for eligibility. Because of


the high volume of applicants tak-
ing the test, it is only offered every
few years in any given district.
Information about U.S. govern-
mentjobs is available free. Federal
agencies and the U.S. Postal
Service never charge application
fees, or guarantee that an appli-
cant will be hired. If positions
require a competitive examina-
tion-and many do not-hiring
agencies typically offer free sam-
ple questions to consumers who
sign up for the exam.
It is deceptive for anyone to
guarantee you a high score on
Tests 460 and 470, the postal
entrance exams for rural carrier
associate, clerk, city carrier, mail,
handler, flat sorter machine oper-
ator, mail processor arid mark-up
clerk. These exams test your gen-
eral aptitude, not your knowledge
of facts.
Attending workshops, study-
ing exam techniques, and taking
practice questions will not assure
you of a top score on any postal
exam. Indeed, a topz score does
not guarantee that you will be
hired. You must meet other,
requirements, including passing a'
background check and, a drug
test. Veterans receive hiring pref-


erences.

IRS Restructuring and Reform Bill" I


through Friday, between 9:00
a.m. and 4:00 p.m., CT, or call
Ray Jackson in the Port St. Joe


office at 229-2760 on Tuesday or
Thursday afternoons between
1:00 and 5:00p.m., ET.


On Thursday, June 25, Con-
gressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida) joined his House col-
leagues in passing the conference
report of H.R. 2676, The Internal
Revenue Service Restructuring
and Reform Act The legislation
passed by a vote of 402 to 8. The
Senate is scheduled to vote on
the legislation after the Fourth of
July recess, and the president
has pledged to sign the bill into
law.
This legislation includes a
number of provisions to, increase
the rights and legal protections of
taxpayers and revamp the opera-
tion of the IRS. Most importantly.
H.R. 2676 shifts the burden of
proof in tax disputes from the
taxpayers to the IRS.
'The American Justice system
is based on the premise of inno-
cent until proven guilty," said


Boyd. "But in the world of the In-
ternal, Revenue Service, the tax-
payers are guilty until they can

Congressman Boyd
voted in favor of
bills' approval.

prove themselves innocent. I was
pleased to support legislation
which will turn the tables and
protect the rights of American
taxpayers." '-
In addition. the legislation
provides relief to the "innocent
spouse," so that the spouse of an
individual who practices tax eva-
sion does not bear full responsi-
bility for that individual's debts
and penalties.


Also, under H.R. 2676, tax-
payers will no longer face interest
rate payments and fines when the"
IRS fails to promptly notify tax-
payers of their outstanding debts.
The IRS will face several in-
ternal reforms under the legisla-I,_
tion. The commissioner will be r,-,
granted more flexibility in hiring.,.
and firing, with a new mandatory -
firing policy for employees who ,,
commit serious infractions, in-
cluding the abuse of taxpayers. In
addition, the bill will create an in-
, dependent board to oversee the'
agency's enforcement and collec-
tions activities.
"Congress has finally taken
actions to reign in the Internal
Revenue Service and to ensure
that this agency serves the tax-'J,"
payers first," said Boyd. "This leg-''
islation will not only grant Ameri- ic
cans the rights that they deserve,
but it will also put in place proce-
dures to ensure that the IRS will,"
never'again abuse its power in '
the manner which we have wit-
nessed over the past several
years.

Academy of Gulf Coast Communi-
,ty College will conduct a part-

"TakingA Bite Out of Delivery"
By Dennis Geoghagan, Postmaster, Port St. Joe
S-L"Why Do Some Dogs Bite?"
Would your dog bite? The Humane Society of
the United States (HSUS) estimates that more
than four million dog bites are reported to local
authorities each year. Countless more go unre-
Ported.
Dog bites range from painless nips to fatal maul-
ings. Children are most often the victims. Dog attacks
are the most commonly reported childhood pubbc health
problem in the United States. Dog bite victims account for
up to five percent of all hospital emergency room visits.
You may feel confident that your dog won't add to
these statistics. and it is probably true that your trusty
companion will never seriously harm anyone. However, if
your dog doeg attack or bite someone, you could be liable
for the victim's pain. suffering and medical costs.
Potential victims include your letter carrier. There are
several ways you can avoid liability. Reducing the likeli-
hood that your dog will ever bite someone helps protect
you, your canine companion and everyone else in the
community.
1'h y some.dogs bite ...
Although dogs may bite for a variety of reasons. spay-
ing.or neutering has been shown to reduce aggressiveness.
Bite statistics show that unsterilized dogs are up to three
-- times more likely to be involved in a biting incident than
sterilized dogs. Lack of socialization, improper training,
excitement. and, fear can all contribute to a dog attack.
Even a nip on the leg is unacceptable behavior for a fami-
ly dog.
Here are three suggestions to help take the bite out of
your dog:
1. Teach your dog appropriate behavior. Don't play
aggressive games with your dog such as wrestling, tug of
9* war or siccing your dog on another person. It's essential
that your dog recognize members of your family as domi-
nant figures not to be challenged.
2. 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 behavioral problems.
3. Err on the safe side. If you don't know how your dog
\will react to a new situation, be cautious. If you
think your dog could panic in a crowd. leave S
him/her in another room. Help your dog become
accustomed to a variety of situations.

of other crops.' including cotton,
soybeans, watermelons, and to-

The Florida Department of
Agriculture has estimated losses
at more than $100 million at this
point. Commissioner of Agricul-

will go higher rapidly unless rains
come and temperatures drop.
"I have talked to many of our
older farmers, and none can re-

gan. associate director of Florida
Farm Bureau's Ag Policy Division.
"Many of them are running out of
feed for their animals." Hall said
the lack of hay has forced many
producers to'. send animals to
slaughter prematurely.
Forestry operations have lst

The concept will be tested in a pi-

Due to the Prevalence of Wildfire Danger


Wildfire burning in the still

means that there will be NO PUB-

Anyone entering the area will
be asked to leave, except for resi-
dents, who may be asked by law
enforcement officers to show
proof of residency. Refusal to'

arrest.
Other WMA's throughout the
