PAGE TWO THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1998
THIS HAS BEEN ABOUT the least talked about election we
have had in several years. Even the candidates have not been
talking-at least we have not heard. them. This situation can
only add to the growing apathy of voters which we have experi-
enced the past several years. The news media and other public
entities beg and plead for the electors to come out and cast their
votes, all to no avail. We even threaten and belittle the voters to
do their duty and if they don't, we tell them they have no busi-
ness complaining when things don't go to suit them.
Well, the same situation exists when nobody runs for office.
They often-times leave it up to less qualified people to fill the of-
fices instead of offering themselves as candidates. Why not offer
for election? Because of the prevailing thought that "I wouldn't
run for office for anything!"
'THERE'S NOTHING MORE SATISFYING than public ser-
vice. No matter what the office is or how many constituents one
has, it is a satisfying experience to do a public job as well as one
can. It takes hard work and a little bit of money to get elected,
but nothing worth doing is free or lacks responsibility.
That's why the ones who offer themselves for public office do
it. Even with the usual back-biters nipping at your heels for
your entire term in office, it is an enjoyable experience and one
you'll never regret.
The more candidates run for an office, the better the voters'
choice. A case in point is the field of candidates we had seeking
the Sheriffs job in Gulf County two years ago. They were all
good men. The mediocre or sorry candidate knew he had just as
well not waste his time seeking the position. As a result, we were
bound to elect ourselves a good Sheriff.
WE'RE NOT SAYING THE CURRENT crop of candidates
won't make good public officials. We're not even saying they
won't do their very dead-level best at the job they are asking for.
We are saying that potential candidates need not shun the op-
portunity to get elected, robbing the electors of still another
choice with which to fill an office.
SATURDAY IS SCALLOP FESTIVAL DAY here In Port St.
Joe. It's a unique festival we can identify with-even if the scal-
lop population is scarce this year.
The scallop festival calls attention to one of the simplest of
sea creatures. It takes no special equipment to harvest them and
no special technique. Just wade the bay and pick them up. Har-
vesting scallops is one of the simplest, most enjoyable family
oriented activities there is. Families by the droves come here es-
pecially for this activity and enjoy themselves, whether or not
they locate any scallops.
This special day is to commemorate this wholesome activity,
which is thoroughly enjoyed by so many. We see families come
here with nothing but a washtub floating in an old inner tube
and maybe a web sack or two. to put their immediate catch in.
They wade the shallows of the bay, hunting the elusive scallop
and have just a great time!
..Others bring their sophisticated boats with' buoy markers
and depth finders. They have just as good a time in diving into
deeper water hunting their prey. People come equipped all in be-
tween the waders and the boaters. but all are after the same
'thing, and when they find them, all celebrate alike.
HUNTING THE ELUSIVE SCALLOP is the most stress-
correcting activity around the water, except for, maybe,
crabbing. In crabbing you need only a simple net on the end of a
stick and wade the shallows in search of your quarry. Both are
delicious eating! -'
The reason we are celebrating scallop day here, instead of
crab day, is that crab day is already taken by another communi-
ty., Scallop day is unique with Gulf County. There's not another
similar festival, anywhere. You will see and learn about things at
this festival you will find nowhere else. It isn't all commercial.
There are things to do except trudge from craft booth to craft ;
booth in the heat. You will learn about the life of the. scallop.
You will find out what they taste like and then you. too, will be' a
regular searcher of this delicious mollusk which is unlike .any,
other. You will learn what the vagaries of the bay are and what
makes it unique. .'
Crabs, oysters. clams; etc., all have their followers, but until
you have become a scallop-follower. you haven't really enjoyed

Spotball Says, "It's STILL Dog Days Till Mocking Birds Sing"
A COUPLE OF weeks ago, I
went out on a limb and an-
nounced that as of August 11,
Dog Days were officially over and
done with for this year. I had this
on the authority of a calendar,
which had all kinds of, special
days printed on it, just like it was
the gospel truth.
You're familiar with these
know-it-all calendars, aren't you?
You know the kind; they tell you
everything from the best time to
go fishing, to the best time to ,
plant broccoli. They did it a year
ahead of time, too. Those calen-
dars will predict whether it is go-
ing to rain or be clear a specific
day... a year ahead of time.
I don't know who drew up
those calendars, but some people
swear by. them. They wouldn't
dare plant their carrots, or pota-
toes, or green beans without first
consulting "the calendar", to be
sure they were doing it right.
Well, I relied on this calendar
to get the correct day for the end-
ing of Dog Days, and. I put my

BUT, BACK TO Dog Days.
Spot 'Barbee-among a host of'
others-button-holed me the very,
next Sunday at church, by ask-
ing, "Where did you hear a mock-
ing bird sing?"
I had to tell him I hadn't, so
far as I knew. There's a mocking
bird which built a nest in the
azalea bush outside my bathroom
window, but I confess I hadn't no-
ticed whether or not he/she had
It was so hot I just figured
she sat on her nest in the cool
shade and had jUst foregone sing-'
ing until the cool of the evening.
Spot pressed the matter fur-
ther, by stating, "I haven't heard
a mocking bird sing a single note
since way back,ln July and I have
been listening for them!"
Spot wanted Dog Days to
come to an end, too.
I wouldn't 'know a mocking
bird's song if I were to hear one
warble, "Tennessee Waltz"I
THE ONLY ACTUAL experi-
ence I had with a mockingbird
was a few years ago and I be-
'lieve itwas during Dog Days!
This one time we had a huge
tom cat. He was large enough to
take, ;care 'of himself under any
circumstances. One day, I noticed
him sneaking up on something in
a bush out in our back yard.. Old s
tom was as stealthy as could be
Suddenly, a mocking .bird
started dive bombing that big old
tom cat, putting him flat on his
belly and motionless for the first
two or three dives. Then, w*yhen
the diving and pecking with the
sharp beak continued, the' cat
broke and ran during one of the
bird's passes. As large as he was,
he broke, .and ran. The mocking
bird had put him to flight!,
It seems the' tomr cat;,'was
sneaking toward the mocking
bird's nest and the mockingbird
was going to have none of that!

Watch Out for Food Poisoning
You can help safeguard your
health by observing these tips:
*Keep foods cold (below 40
degrees Fahrenheit) or hot (above
140 degrees Fahrenheit). Foods
left out between those tempera-
tures for more than two hours
should be discarded.
*Keep cooked foods separate
from raw foods. Cross-contamina-
tion of foods could occur if bacte-
ria-harboring raw food comes in
contact with cooked foods! Wash
hands, utensils, cutting boards
and counter tops after preparing
or handling raw meats.
*Don't interrupt the cooking
process. If you are partially cook-
ing foods indoors to finish cooking
on the grill, make sure the food
goes directly from the oven to the
hot grill. Don't let the food stand
By BOB CRAWFORD
Commissioner of Agriculture
Warm weather brings picnic
and cookout season, a traditional
time for family and friends to
gather, socialize and have fun.
But higher outdoor temperatures
can also help food-borne bacteria
multiply quickly, spoiling food
and causing illness.
When left unrefrigerated, var-
ious food, products can become
contaminated with bacteria. Some
bacteria-undetected by sight,
smell or taste-produce danger-
ous toxins that cause food poi-
soning. Especially at warmer tem-
peratures, they thrive on foods
,that are left out. Even if the bac-
teria are later killed by heat or-
cold, the toxins can remain to

MEDITATIONS OF A
countryy areat er
By LOWELL F. ADAMS
"I saw and bare
record, that this is the
Son of God."
'THE BIBLE IS A TRUE HISTORY. Among
other truths, The Old Testament is a history of'the
nation, Israel, and God's' promise of a Messiah. The
New Testament is the eye-witness testimony of the
coming of that Messiah,|in the person of Jesus, the,
Christ, the Son of God. A'Xrue historical record. indeed.
The four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John,
and other Scriptures were written by men who served
alongside Jesus during His ministry to this unbelieving
world. Surely these writers knew the Man, Jesus. as no
one else ever knew Him. Written at different times, by
different men, there is maybe a few normal, human
differences in their accounts, but nothing that takes
away from the central truth of Jesus and God's Word.
People have sometimes said "I don't believe
anything I can't prove." Really? Oh, but they do! There
are historical facts that everyone believes. Who could
possibly, scientifically prove that Columbus sailed here.
on a little sailing vessel, and discovered America? We
believe this because it is recorded in history. Except for
the writings of many who were eye-witnesses, none of
us would know of our past. Suppose we were asked to
"prove" anything that happened in America's past?
How would we prove it? We accept this truth on faith.
Good men of the past have preserved for you and
me a better history the miracles of Jesus, that only.
God's power could have accomplished. Who but Jesus
could raise the dead? Who but Jesus could give sight to
the blind? Eye-witness records of the truth of these and
other miracles are ours in the pages of God's Book.
They saw Jesus perform these Godly acts of mercy.
Why would anyone not believe them?
Faith in Bible history is much more important to
you and me than faith in America's history. That is the
only way you and I will ever see God. Jesus tells us in,
John 14:6, "1 am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no
one comes unto the Father, but by me." We believe that
or we lose any hope of enjoying the eternal future.
God's Gift of Life is ours when we ask for it in faith.

The "Drifters" are the kings of the kindfish tournament-winning the $2,000 grand prize in the
Mexico Beach tournament, which concluded Saturday evening. Shown from left are David Walker, Joey
,Raffield, Brent Pierce and Eugene Raffield. They landed a 34.35 pounder to take the big money. Five
thousand dollars in prize money were awarded Sunday afternoon.
The Minn Kota Trail Bass Qualifier Tounament was held this past weekend at White City. The com-
petitors fished Lake Wimico, with Carmen McLemore of Wewahitchka winning the tourney with 17.67
pounds of fish. The tournament had been rescheduled due to the spring flooding, with fishing not at its
e optimum at this time of year. Over $5,000 in prizes and awards were given to the top 10 finishers, and
the one catching the largest bass.
Bottom fishing has been good using cigar'minnows, northern mackerel and live bait. The last week, dead bait has been
just as good as li>e bait for catching grouper. Snapper are on most of the wrecks, and high peaks that you might have caught
any fish on in the past. .
King-~ackerel are being caught hell around the buoy line and artificial reefs Big Spanish mackerel are also being
caught offshore. Trolling is good if you can find blue waite. Captain Ronriie Miller catight a 65 lb. wahoo Saturday in 1.90
foot of water southwest of Mexico Beach on a NoAliba, trolling at 11 knots.

Views On qDental H[eafth
FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
In 1970, only 12 million
'Americans were covered by
dental insurance. Today, that
number is over 100 million.
This has immeasurably ele-
vated the level and scope of
the nation's dental care.,
Dental insurance usually
is offered through employer
and union, group plans, and it
can be a valuable asset to
you and your family.
Insurance carriers know
that it's more economical in
the long run to provide regu-
lar professional care to head
off serious dental problems.
For this reason, many dental
plans provide greater cover-
age for examination and pre-
ventive care than for restora-
tive treatment. For example, if
a person visits the dentist for
routine examinations, his out-,
of-pocket cost will decrease
the next year.
Both employers and ben-
eficiaries benefit from dental
insurance. Patients receive
dental care they need at a.
reduced cost and employers
find it a worthwhile employ-
ment incentive. As one noted,
"It's one health benefit people
don't have to get sick to use"'

mote better dental health. From the

snaps," said Coach Gannon. "We
executed well on offense and we

Florida Power Corporation
utilizes many methods to control

,One of the things a homeowner
-can do to protect equipment from

'overall coverage, your surge pro-
Stection should involve a "two,

Squate grounding along with:

;whole building, such as a device
connected to the main electrical
panel of Florida Power's "Meter

wiring, appliances, and electrical

Back-Up Power Supplies
Storms sometimes cause
power outages. Back-up power
supplies are available for critical

must keep running, or where
important dates may be lost with

avoid using the telephone as the
telephone line might conduct a
surge which could cause injury.
Using a portable or cellular phone
(one that is not directly connected
to the phone lines) is safer. It's a
good idea to have at least one
standard "plug in" phone in your
home or business. If the power,
does go out, phones thatrely on a
separate power supply will not
Water from leaking roofs and
broken windows can be especial-
ly damaging to electronics. To,
prepare for a major storm or hur-
ricane, have on hand large plastic
bags (that can be sealed) to con-
tain your equipment. Move your
electronics away, from windows to
protected interior areas, but keep
them off the floor where flooding
or leading water may collect.
Records and Storage ;
Be sure to keep electronic
files backed up and keep copies of
those and other important docu-
ments stored in a safe place away
from your home or business. You- ,--
should back up your records in
this way on a regular basis to,.
avoid loss frori', storms, torna-

GFC Campaign Urges
People to "Be Gator Safe"
The Florida Game and Fresh

launching a public safety cam-
paign to reduce conflicts between
the state's humans and alligators.
The focus of the campaign is to
This column Is provided as a service-of the Life Management Center, a professional counseling and
mental health center. It is not intended to replace psychological counseling or treatment services.
My husband died about two
months ago after a long illness.
We were married 29 years and
had four wonderful children. The
problem is that there is no prob-
lem. I, accepted his death long
before he died, and was actually
relieved for' him when he passed
My' children think that I
should be grieving, and I can't
seem to convince them that I'm
not. They make me very angry
when ;they bring it up, and I
refuse to talk about it. Should I be
grieving? Is it possible that I am
, just avoiding it like my children
say I am?
Signed Let's Move On.
Dear Let's Move On,
It is unusual, even after a
long illness, that there is not some
sense of loss at the death of your
husband. Although people grieve
in teidr own way, recovery usual-
ly follows predictable stages that
are necessary for healthy adjust-
ment to the loss. Very common in
sucl~ a loss is denial of the emo-
tional Impact. Your anger at the
menpon of your husband's death
may be an indication that some
defenses are at work.
Even if you are not avoiding
the emotional Impact of your hus-
band's loss, you would do well to
engage in some activities that can
help-. you and your children
adjust, and possibly uncover your
true feelings about losing him.
Learn about the grieving
process by reading books and
material on the subject. Two of
the books recommended are Good
Grief by G. Westburg and How to
Survive the Loss of a Love by M.
You should discuss your feel-
ings often with your family and
one or two friends. Your children
are undoubtedly adjusting even if
you are not. They would benefit
from this as well.
Pay attention to what you
avoid and actively expose yourself
to those things. Examples may be
visiting your husband's grave,
cleaning out his closet, and look-
ing at pictures of him. Keep a
diary or journal of your thoughts
and feelings regarding your hus-
band and his absence. Most
important, don't deny any painful
or negative feelings you have. Tell
someone about them.
Life Management Center has
therapists available who have
experience in issues of grief and
loss. I would advise you to consid-
er seeing a professional to help
you with this process. We also
have a 24-hour crisis line should
'you need emergency assistance.
