PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 324564i* .THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1998

In Industry-Wide Move
to Be More Competitive
Just about the time you figure Port St. Joe has been shaken
down enough make it lean and aggressive, along comes another
jolt to the make-up of the job picture and affects it again.
This time it was an industry-wide cost-cutting move by Ari-
zona Chemical Company which stirred the economic waters with
the announcement of belt tightening throughout its family of
plants. The cutback spells termination for seven Port St. Joe em-
ployees of the naval stores manufacturer, according to plant
manager, Dave Garrett.
Garrett says the plant will be terminating three from its staff
inside the management corps and four from its operational plant
by the end of November of this year.
AN ECONOMY MOVE
'This is strictly an economy driven move on our part," Gar-
rett said. "A combination of pressures from the Asian market
and increasing pressure from the domestic manufacturers who
are our competitors are determining this move. We have to be
more competitive in our product and this is one move we're tak-
ing to stay competitive."
Garrett said the Port St. Joe plant, as a whole, has a solid fu-
ture in Arizona's plans. Its future has a continuity to it which its
performance has assured through the good performance of its
workers in the past. "We make a good and valued product here,"
Garrett said, "which should keep us in the running for top plant
designation for the future."

Marilyn's tradition of service to

desire to lift the entire intellectual
level of each class, one individual

IT ISN'T OFTEN THAT WE criticize the actions of our city
commission, for the simple reason that they do a pretty good job
of governing our city. But, it is necessary sometimes that we do so
and that isn't to say that we are always correct and the target of
our jibes Is always wrong.
This particular time, we are convinced that we are correct and
.the commission has made a wrong move; at least a move which is
not in the best interests of the city.
We're talking about their recent decision to award the annual
audit responsibilities to a Jacksonville firm at a price of nearly
$10,000 over what a local firm will perform the same service for
and approximately $8,500 more than a Tallahassee firm agreed to
do the job for.
'A THIRD MORE FOR the audit is just too much a difference
to 'accept without objection on our part.
We realize the successful firm is a fine firm, but so are the
other two offers from fine firms, also. The successful firm is not
that much better than the other two. All three must meet the same
standards in order to be able to put the designation, "CPA", behind'
One of the partners in the lowest bidder firm has been an
auditor for several years for St. Joe Paper Company, Container
Division. The other partner is currently the auditor for Gulf
County, Franklin County and several other government agencies.
It isn't as if they were novices to the business of performing com-
It's Ironic that the firm of Deloitte & Touche was recommend-
ed to the city for their auditing job many years ago, when such
firms were forbidden by law from offering bids. The city needed an
auditor and this was the only firm some of the commissioners
knew of. They have been replaced, at times, but have been re-
AT THIS TIME, THE cash flow of the city should be consid-
ered, as well as the necessity for a good audit. The city does not
have an extra S10,000 to just toss away on an audit, which, in
effect, is exactly what it Is doing.
We don't build up the city by sending its business to out-of-
town firms who pay no taxes, fees, rents, or services here. The
idea is to get what is best for the city, a deal that builds up the
city, not deteriorates it. Any money sent out of town deteriorates
the city, but an extra third to perform a task, Is just too much to
sit by and remain silent.
Feed On Each Other
SATURDAY WAS AN IMPORTANT day in Port St. Joe. It was
both the day for the health fair and the WalkAmerica March of
Dimes affair. Both are important affairs in the health of our com-
munity and nation. The health fair is an important player in deter-
miniln person's need for expert attention if he Is to coriti txiet
good ~l th. The March of Dimes is one of several approved-1tihTLtk;
fundnr determining the cause of problems with childrenitld
Both activities were huge successes Saturday, in spite of our
depressed state of economics. The people of Port St. Joe respond-
ed in true fashion and supported these activities to the ultimate.
A third charity was Faith Christian School's annual flea mar-
ket and barbecue, held to raise funds for the school. fit's to the
school's credit that it doesn't go through the sham of conducting
a lottery to raise funds.]
All three activities were held in the same location, feeding off
the crowd attracted by the other activity. This is as it should be.
People are anxious to support anything which directly helps
themselves and the community, and the more convenient we can
make the different activities, the better.
WE REMEMBER WHEN FDR first initiated the March of
Dimes, strictly to fight polio. The fund was successful in its mis-
sion because the people had faith in it. Now it has shifted gears to
research birth defects and childhood diseases. As long as the fund
has the welfare of children as its focus, it will be successful, as
well as work for an acceptable target. We have seen the treatment
centers for polio, prior to the cure being found. The victims went
through torture, just trying to combat the effects of the disease.

It seems that when computers
first started to invade every area of
activity, they were strapped for
memory space. Someone came up
with the bright idea of leaving out
the portion of the date that put the

that to understanding-and save;
two bits of memory space. Now
that we're just before having to
change that century designation,
there is no place in most comput!
ers to designate which century is
According to the speaker, this
inability will lock up the computer
and it just won't do anything. It
will need repairing, or altering, by
an expert, so it will do the proce-
dure. If your coffeemaker was pro-
grammed to begin perking at 6:30
in the morning, it just won't start
because it doesn't know 6:30 a.m.,

will it be erased? Nobody knows.
The bugger in the deal is that

being sold, compounding the
problem. All computers are not so
limited, but the purchaser doesn't
know which ones are and which
ones aren't. Many manufacturers
are still manufacturing hardware
and software with the old limita-
Computers are built into vir-

everything which operates auto-,
matically, 'repeatedly, figures
financial tables into the future, fig-

scheduled for a shutdown.
BUT, THE PICTUI E isn't
entirely bleak. I can see pi-blems
ahead for all these automatic
phone systems which say, "If you
wish to speak to such-and-such
department, press 2, or if you
desire another departrnent,*,'press
3 ." In the first place, I don't
know which department I wish to
speak to. All I know is, I want to
speak to "Joe". And, I also know I
don't wish to listen to a multiple
choice spiel everytime I call for
Also, it might stop all. those
annoying sales pitch calls which
,come just as I sit down to supper.
Likely, with the lock-up of the
automatic calling feature, 'politi-
cians will be forced to use some
other method of solicitation of
votes and we won't have them get-
ting into trouble with the. voters
with sabotage calls such: as a
gubernatorial candidate did in
Florida a few years back.

We might, once again, take'
over the operation of our automo-

All this seems to be a possibil-;

some of the good: things which
computers afford us, too,: such as
this type-setting system I'm peck-

Yes, it is true, if your Heating

efficiency system onu are wasting
For the past couple of years
we have found a need to inform
our customers of these little known
facts. An old or inefficient system
can be costing you more to operate
than the payments would be for a
new high efficiency system.
I have made arrangements
with a national financing company
to provide low interest loans to
homeowners for the purchase of
new healing and cooling equip-
ment for their homes. The applica-
tion takes about 5 minutes to fill
out and it only lakes an additional
5 minutes on the phone to get
approval to start the job. In some
cases the monthly payments are
less than the savings on the electric
bill. Thus, you are making money.
I have had jobs where the
owner reported 'as much as
$170.00 savings from their electric
bill, in comparison with the same
month a year later, after installing
a 12 SEER Heal Pump System.
Improvements to your windows
and insulation can also add to
Another problem that can cost
you money and comfort is under-
sized systems. An undersized sys-
tem becomes most apparent during
hot weather. If your Air
Conditioner runs all day without
shutting off. the problem could be
an undersized Air Conditioner.
We also see a lot of problems
due to the lack of maintenance. To
solve this problem we offer a main-
tenance agreement: this agreement
provides for your unit to be

cooling needs or problems might

The Florida '.
Department of Health is running
commercials showing straps,
belts, and other Items commonly
used to discipline children. It
also shows cigarette smoke. Can
smoking around your children
be an unintended form of child
Before dismissing this idea as
I did, think about it. Second
hand smoke does kill you, right?
So Isn't It possible that you are
inadvertently risking your chil-
dren's health. 1
I'm not ;suggesting disciplin-
ing your children is child abuse,'
but endangering their health
could be. When a person kills a
child there is swift and strict
punishment. ,When you smoke
around a child, they won't die,
but they are likely to develop'
asthma and other heart and
breathing problems that could
lead to death .
If you must smoke, ask your
child to leave the room for a cou-
ple of minutes. Or you could go
into another room to smoke.
This small inconvenience could
reduce'the risk of bad health of
people you love significantly.
Another thing that you
should do is not smoke in the
car when you're with your kids.
A cracked window does not elim-
inate all smoke from your car.
A cigarette is not worth your
child's health. If you have any
questions or comments call the

-,, My son Is ,telling me. he's ,real
depressed lately. He's 10 years old.
His grades have been getting worse
at school but that's because he's not
been trying very1 hard lately. 'He
doesn't even want to 'go' to school
some days, so he fakes ai stomach
ache or a realbad headache.
There Is nothing going Ori itihis
life that would make himtdepressed
'and I -don't really ,:think he's 'old
enough to have 'real. problems any-
way. I mean; he doesn't have to deal
with paying bills or a bad marriage
I've been telling hirm to stostp this
. at, of his because I know he's just
fdong it to get out of school. He
doesn't pay attbntion'to me though.
I don't know how to let him know
'that I am'seriously'iedd' bf lfhits'

S' Thanks, ,
.: Consider what your life was like
when you were your son's, age.
School, friends and family were
most likely your entire world. If any
of these dimensions were upset,
your world was shaken., ,
Kids battle with things that
may seem smallto us This is dpelto
the fact that we have previously
developed coping skills for the par-
ticular situation. Therefore. we
should not assume that children do
hot have issues to deal with.
Judging from the evidence you
have presented, he may very well be
depressed. He does not wish to
attend school any longer and& his
grades have fallen. You .further
describe a complaint of stomach
aches and/or headaches, which
could be symptoms of depression.
Other symptoms include (1)
sleep disturbance, (2) appetite dis-
turbance, (3) weight change, (4) irri-
table mood for children and adoles-
cents, (5) anhedonia, (6) lack of abil-
ity to concentrate, etc. Subjective
report of depression is one of the
best indicators that the individual
is, in fact, depressed.
You report no current difficul-
ties within the home setting, that
could perpetuate .' his mood.
Therefore. it would be wise to inves-
tigate his, circumstances at, school
at this point in time to determine
where the disruption lies.
I There are any number of possi-
bilities as to why your child is expe-
riencing difficulty. The guidance
counselors at the school .are more
:than willing to speak with you
regarding your child's school perfor-
'mance, and behavior. *
I also suggest you seek profes-
Ssional counseling for your child. To
r ; set up counseling with a profession-
