Over the past several months
Gulf County and concerned resi-
dents and property owners have
squared off with FEMA represen-
tatives 'on their proposed flood
map changes.
The major problem is that the
new maps would place much of
the coastal property in Gulf
County in a higher risk zone. That
means slightly higher flood insur-
ance rates for most residents, but
at the Cape and In areas of Indian
Pass under the CBRA (Coastal
Barrier Resources Act) zone it is a
major problem.
CBRA areas are excluded
from low cost government backed
flood insurance programs so the
new regulation could force proper-
ty owners to reconsider building
plans. Manyv area banks would
also have to re-assess their lend-
ing practices and requirements
for property in the affected areas.
Congressman Boyd was suc-
cessful in having language added
to the VAH-VD-Independent
Agencies Appropriations bill,
which funds FEMA, that address-
es Gulf County's situation.
President Clinton signed the bill
into law on October 20th.

Eating Raw Oysters

Must Be Really Good
It has come to our attention
that people have misinterpreted
part of our headline article
regarding Pristine Oyster jobs in
last week's paper. We did not
interid to imply that people eating
oysters on the half-shell should
worry about getting sick.

would ensure that even the few
individuals who have liver disease

worrying.

The recent election .of


Vice-Chairman John Staiiley


Commissioner Billy Tiaylor and
Commissioner Peters as chairman
arid vice-chairman sparked con-
troversy. Stanley and several of'
his 'supporters .have stated that
District One has been slighted
and that he is being discriminated
against. ,
Peters named a host of pro-
jects that have taken place in,l
District One recently and stated
that he didn't feel that he had dis-
criminated against Stanley.
"All I want is what's best for
Gulf county.," he said in explana-
tiori'to Stanley. .
The board unanilmously sup-
ported Peters' motion. Commis-.

fiirther commented that he felt,

$1 Lease For Willis Landing
The board unanimouslyy
accepted an offer from the St. Jbe'
Company to lease Willis Landing"
for one dollar .per year. Chief
Administrator Don Butler told the
board that the lease would.
include the boat landing and
parking areas surrounding the
site.
Assistant Road Superidtend-
dent, Bobby Knee, said the land-
ing was in good shape and there is
plenty of parking in the area.
Chairman Billy Traylor agreed
with Knee's assessment and
asked the board to forward a let-
ter to the company thanking them
for the opportunity.
Meeting Format Change
Board Chairman Billy Traylor
outlined several changes to the


buai'rd'r meeting procedutis to
those present. As people entered
the meeting they were given, a
hand out outlining most of those
changes.
*Persons wishing to speak to
the board should do so from the
, podium and state their name for
the record.
*Random comments and con-
versations were also asked to be
discontinued.
These changes were request-
ed in an effort to cause less con-
fusion and allow everyone to be
heard.
The board also changed its
piollcy of providing information
packets once every two weeks.
Instead, board members will be
updated daily on incoming corre-
spondence to the board.
Commissioner Traylor point-
ed out to those who questioned
the change that public access has,
not changed and anyone wishing.

tact the clerk's office to receive the

Stone Container Corporation,
. a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Smurfit-Stone Container Corpora-
tion, flied a reorganization plan in,
Federal Bankruptcy Court last
Wednesday. (October 20th), which
if confirmed, would settle all
claims in bankruptcy proceedings
and transfer to Stone Container
all assets of Florida Coast Paper
Company. "
This comes as good news for
laid off mill workers who have
waited since August 1998 for an,
answer on the fate of the idle
FCPC plant.
After FCPC filed a motion to
convert from Chapter 7 liquida-
tion bankruptcy many people
believed it might expedite the
process, possibly even bringing a
quick answer to the mill's future
operational status.
Unfortunately one still has to
guess what' the final outcoimne
might be for at least the next few*
weeks. Stoine Container's plan
still must be approved by the
bankruptcy court and if it is
approved, Stone still has not
released a statement that gives a
serise of direction or plans on
their part, for the idled mill.
Some local' economists have
suggested that options might,
include leaving the ilant idle anid
keeping additional paper supply
off the market or selling the plant
to a non-competitive product line
or re-opening the mill for produc-
tion.,
Stone Containeis reorganiza-
tion plans will ask the bankruptcy
court to approve -settlement of all
claims in cash payments iand will

Bringing Order



Out of Chaos

Making a water use plan to suit
all parties isn't easy

THE FUTURE OF THE APALACHICOLA River has reversed to
a much safer direction after a conference by Senator Bob Graham
and Congressman Alan Boyd, conducted on site' recently. with
advocates of the river's preservation. As it turned out, the solution
accommodated both the pro-river and pro-waterway advocates.
Funding provided by Congress would enable the Army Corps of'
Engineers to dispose of sand deposits at other points than the
banks of the Intracoastal. Only enough funding to remove a few of
the many current spoil sites was appropriated for the next year.
The Corps is mandated by the U.S. Congress to provide a naviga-
ble channrelTor shipping interests.
The two law-makers, ambassadors of the public that they are,
helped to arrive, ata solution to the problem which will suit every-
one, at least to the point of compromise between the two philoso-
phies.
That was quite anfaccomplishment, iri itself!
NOW, WE STILL HAVE OUR WORK cut out for us in arriving
at a compromise with the states of Georgia and Alabama-as to how
much water each state can be allowed to remove from the river.
It 'seems to them their needs are more important than our
needs to preserve a. spot to fish, grow' oysters, water our, farm-
lands, and even a little drinking water. They are, for the most part,
advocating the water's use for human consumption. Florida inter-
ests want to assure at least a minimum flow each year, and a
cyclical fluctuation, to mimic Mother Nature's ebb and flow.
THE CORPS OF ENGINEERS HAS ONLY one use for the river.,
That one use is important to them but not overly important to us.,
We want the use of "our" river. But is it "our" river? It just hap-
pens to flow through a portion of our county and is "ours" only by
"the fact of its location.
We must learn to share and share alike and not be greedy. The
Apalachicola also "belongs" to, Alabama; Georgia, the shipping'
interests, the shellfish industry and the sport fishing industry,
just as it does to each one of those entities.
The agreement worked out by Graham and Boyd may be the
beginning of the solving of a particularly thorny problemiand may
not be to the satisfaction of everyone, but hopefully will begin the
restoration and 'saving of the Apalachicola as we know it'.



Alabama Benefits

THE STATE OF- ALABAMA WASN'T sucked in with the
promises of nirvana from the" proceeds of a'proposed lottery'pro-
gram and voted it down. It would be to Florida's advantage to f6tl2
low suit. Alabama voters recognized the fact that less than one-
third of the proceeds from any lottery would find its way into the
state's school finances.
Proponents of the state lottery tried the ploy of fear with the
people of Alabama, claiming that Florida and Georgia were shak-
ing in their boots, thinking Alabama would approve a state lottery
and deprive Florida of some income. Actually. Florida wasn't con-
cerned about this fact. We in our state were only concerned that
the people of Alabama would make the same mistake Florida did'
a few years back, in approving the lottery program.
GAMBLING IS TAKING -ANOTHER hit in the state of South .
Carolina, too. A movement is afoot in 'that state to rescind their
exercise into legalized gambling, supposedly for the benefit of the
schools.
SOnly Georgia has done what it promised withiits gambling
income and is spending t for-college tuition for those wishing to
attend college. Even Georgia isn't doing strictly what was
promised with its lottery'incomne. We suppose the temptation to
use that bundle of money for other purposes is just too tempting.'s
: The sooner Florida can rid itself-of the lottery program,. the
better off it will be. we believe.

"Momma,

I TOOK A "short" trip this'
past week end, going up to the'
mountains at Gatlinlurg and,,
Pigeon Forge. I wasn't alone. I
went with my daughter, Carol, -her
husband, David, arid grandson, A.
J. Of course,, we took my.. wife.
along, too.
:: We were in the mountains
with at least half the. population of
the southeast and their automo-
biles.
Nearly everyone drives two
cars to church in Port St. Joe,
making a parking experience when
they get there. You can imagine
the difficulty we had parking. in-
Pigeon Forge.
The traffic was six deep in the
six lane highway:- through
Gatlinburg, all the way to Pigeon
Forge,, through Pigeon Forge' and
Seiverville. 'I don't know' how far
the traffic extended into Seiverville
or beyond. We tested it out for
about 20 miles and it was the
same in each of those 20 miles.


WE WENT TOQ A shopping.
center about'. the 'size ,'of Silver
Sands, over at Destin.',and it was
tucked back on a back road. The
people were' all-to-wall and so
were the cars. This was in addition-
to -the traffic on the main road.
I don't believe those moun-
tains' were made for traffic such as,
that. Their attraction is the prima-
tive-ness and natural beauty. The
natural beauty has" just about
been crowded out. The natives to
the place couldn't make enough
crafts and artistic gee-gaws to pro-
vide at least one to a person; so,


you know the preponderance of
the items on sale were the product
of the Japanese, the Taiwanese
and the Indonesians;
But, we had a good time for,
the two days we were there.

IF YOU ARE planning a trip to
the mountainss' let me advise you
not to go through Atlanta. Go any
"other route except through
Atlanta.
I had always gone through
Macon, Athens and up 441, but
Carol had a route provided by her
computer which spelled out the
different highways to be followed


and the' number of miles, to .be
travelled on each highway.
It routed us through Atlanta.
David was doing the driving,
so I kept my mouth shut arid he
followed the computer route as ,the,
most direct. '
When we got.to Atlanta, it was
getting dark and the traffic wias as
thick as an ant bed. We spentat
least an hour 'in that bee: hive
before we got through it.
As we left the mountains,
coming home, David asked if we
didn't know another route, rather
than. have to go back through.
Atlanta:.
I said, "You can follow 441
back, but it may not be the most
direct route."
It' took an hour less to return
home, than it took t6 get to the
mountains.
All the sizeable towns in
Georgia have by-passes built
around them and we zipped right


along.

WHILE WE WERE up in the
mountains we rhade the most of it.
We ate breakfast at the Dillard
.. House, along with a couple from
Port St. Joe. Rick arid Debra
Anderson, and like we said. visitedd
the shopping; center in Pigeon
. Forge where we ran' into' Jeff and
Kim Powell., "' .
Like I said in the beginning,
half the population in the south-
-east was there.,
As we were 'coming in to
S.atlinburg in the thick of creeping
ti-affic, a car- 'on our tail started
honking. It was our son, Ray, and
'his wife, Sue. They just happened
to turn into the street behind us.,
We spent time around meal.
time at, the Apple Barn and
enjoyed a meal there'.
We also had' reservations to
,attend a performance in Dolly'
'Parton's Dixie Stampede dinner
theatre.


THERE WERE about 2,000 in::
attendance at the performance we'
attended.'
Everybody was served a meal
of roasted chicken. pork. an ear.of:
corn, potato logs, apple fritter,.te4
e'psi, or coffee and a roll in shori;
ordert A regiment of servers ga.vy
each'of us individual attention.
"We ate that-+with our
hands-while the. performance
was going on.
'... "Bubba" the clown; stole the
show! He .alone was worth the'
price of admission-especially hi.
entry in the ostrich race The show'
included a real, live, ostrich race.i
As we were coming back ov0
'the mountain parkway, we ra
across an area where the car.
were parked on both sides oftti
road for at least 100 yards.
momma bear had three cubs up
tree and everybody had, stopped

Monumental Music


Enjoyed By The Crowd


People brought their lawn
chairs Saturday afternoon to
enjoy a late afternoon of music
in the park.
4 **'


Port St. Joe City Commission-
ers tackled a relatively light agen-
da during their meeting Tuesday
evening.
" Mayor Frank Pate brought
good news to the board when he
advised them that Congressman
AllenBoyd and his local represen-
tative, Jim Norton, offered their
help in finding some grant money
for the purchase of a new fire
truck.
The city looked at the possi-
bilities of purchasing a new truck
approximately a year ago, but
backed off as they evaluated the
status of Florida Coast Paper
Company and dwindling tax rev-
enues.' Pate said there were two or
three grant options being evaluat-
ed.
Commissioners unanimously
passed a resolution that outlines
the fact that the city fire truck is
over 10 years old, the need to pre-
serve fire insurance rates and
current economic conditions.
- The City is hoping to pur-


chase a combination ladder truck
with, foam -.fighting, capabilities.
Fire Chief. John, Ford. estimated
the cost, at between $375,000 to
$435,000.
Request Halt To Demolition Plans
'Mary Stewart of Bradenton,
requested the Commission to halt
plans to demolish a home belong-
ing to her, located at 708 Long
Avenue. The board has. issued a
10 day notice to the ',property
owner to demolish or they would
move forward. : -,. '
.Stewart told the Commission
she was interested in refurbishing
or selling the house' to someone
who was willing to give the house-
a make-Over.
Board members ad\1sed
Stewart that both the fire mar-.
shall and building inspector have
condemned the house and the
only way to reverse that edict was
to bring the house up to code.
City Attorney Billy Joe Rish
agreed to set up a meeting


,Our Readers

,LetterS to the Editor .

till A Lot of Work To]


.* Dear Editor,
I would like this opportunity
to clarify an issue which I feel
may have inadvertently been mis-
represented to the public.
I refer to the news conference
called by Senator Bob Graham on
October 16 in Apalachicola.
Members of our group (The Help
Save the Apalachicola River
Group). have in the last few days
been congratulated by the public
quiet a few times. I believe that a
large percent, of the public,
believes that the struggle has
been won to save the Apalachicola
River from the destructive prae-..
tices of the Corp of Engineers in,
t'eir effort to maintain a naviga-
Jona] channel on this river. "
i The point of real celebration
in Apalachicola on that day was
the fact that it was publicly
acknowledged by Senator
Graham, AJle'n Boyd, Corp of
Engineers, Tri River Association,
and the Department of Environ-
mental Protection that there is a
problem. The Apalachicola River,.,
still has 156 sand deposits on its
106 mile length. A good number
of these sand deposits have been
placed in positions where they
constrict the water and direct flow
to the neck of a bend or slight
curve in the river thus straighten-


Be Done


ing the river. Dredging. and
depositing the dredged material
on these deposits will continue.
During high water the .sand will
continue to be.. carried Into the
swamp and thus smothering out
wildlife habitat. The water will
still be raised and lowered fre-
quently. drowning turtle egg and
leaving fish eggs to dry and per- .
Ish.
,A statement mailed to our,
group (Help Save the Apalachicola
River Group) from the Corp ofl
Engineers on total cost of main-
taining the Chattahoochee. Flint,
Apalachicola River from 1998 was
right at 19.5 million dollars. This
included dredging, snagging, dam
operation and maintenance.
The new permit the Corp of
Engineers has just accepted
specifically calls for minor dredg-
ing at the mouth of, sloughs that .
are to be restored. Some of these
sloughs once -traveled several-
miles through the swamp but now
many are filled in for. most of
these miles. '
The bottom line is-the river
has not been saved, only a first
step taken. .

COUnty from pg.1


land gave board members copies'
of ,a .sample question which the
board will consider placing on the'
March presidential preference,
ballot. .
Two sample questions were
presented .that ,asked the same
question biut 'in two different
ways.


Sample Ballot Questions
Sample I
Do the citizens' of- Gulf
County, Florida wish to have
county-wide at large voting and
use Gulf County tax monies to
fund a Federal lawsuit to attempt
the abolishment of the single
member voting districts presently
existing in Gulf County, Florida?
___YES ___No
Sample HII
As a citizen of Gulf County,
Florida I am :willing to authorize
the expenditure of county tax
,funds for a Federal lawsuit to
attempt to change the voting sys-
tem in the county from single
member districIts ,to county at
large voting in .the following
amounts:


A. None.. disapprove of
this action
B. S150.000.00 to
$250,000.00,, ,
C. 8250,000.00 to
$ 500,000.00
The county overwhelmingly
voted, by referendum ballot to
support/return to county wide
voting in 1992 but the board
backed off after it was determined
that it would cost between
$100.000 and S250.000 and the
,odds were still not.good to be suc-
cessful.
Commissioner John Stanley
re-addressed the question during
the board's last meeting and the
commission voted 4-1 (Comnmis-
sioner Peters opposed) to look at
the question and consider asking
county voters: if they wished to
pay the price to challenge the con-
sent ruling, for single member dis-
tricts.

PSJE Fall

Festival Oct. 29
.,- Port St. Joe Elementary's PTA
lsplanning a Fall Festival of food
an'a fun! This year's event will be
held at the Centennial Building,
and the vacant lot behind the
building, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
and ending at 1:00 p.m. on
Friday, October 29th.
Pre-school through first grade
students will attend the festival
from 9:00 until,1 1:00 a.m. Second
through fifth grades will attend
from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
The PTA wanted to plan a time
that would enable all the students
at the school to participate in the
festival.
Each classroom at the school
will have a booth in which you can
play a game of chance, or pur-
chase a fall festival souvenir. The
classes will be able to retain half
of their proceeds, so be sure to
attend and support your child's
class.
: The PTA will also be serving a
meal which will include a hot dog,
bag of chips, and a drink for
$2.00. This will really help those
parents that will need to attend
the festival on their lunch hour.
: Some old favorite booths will
be back such as the treat walk,
fishing for prizes, and the duck
pond, but the PTA will be adding a
moon walk and many more.,sur-
prises.


': A big bravo goes to the resit-
dents of SunBridge Care and'
Rehabilitation for their outstand-
ing performance at the, annual
District 10,. 1999 Senior Games in
Tallahasse. With just five resi-
dents competing against residents
from eight other nursing homes, a
total of approximately 70 competi-
tors in attendance, their team
placed lirst place all around and
brought home the trophy! Out of
the six events they received three',
first place wins and 'one third
place win. Events included bean
bag toss, basketball throw, frisbee
toss, bowling, wheelchair races
and balloon roll-up.
Smiles got wider, hurrahs got
louder, and hearts pounded wildly
as' the winner or each event was
called. Tears of joy could not be
contained and the anticipation of
making the 100 mile return trip to
Port St. Joe to make the
announcement to other residents
and staff was almost unbearable.
Cloud nine was under their feet
that day and nothing could bring,
them down!
/ Weeks after the game, as the


Volunteers are needed to help
in setting up the festival, cooking
hot dogs, making treats, providing
soft drinks, and working in
booths. Grandparents are wel-
come to attend! If you would like
to help please call the festival
chairman, Carla May at 227-
2008. They look forward to seeing
you at the Fall Festival!


Trick-or-Treat
On Reid Oct. 30
It's that spookie time of the
year again and the Port St Joe
Merchants Association will be
sponsoring its annual Trick-or-
Ti-eat On Reid, Saturday, October
30.
This year's schedule of events`
will begin at 6:30 with a costume
contest wjth judges from the


trophy stands proudly in the win-
dow, of the lobby, residents and
staff could be heard to say "I wish
I had been there" and "I want to go
with you all next year." And of
course. the winning team still,
echo "You should have see usl We
really did great!" "Can't wait to go
back" and on and on.,
Never let it be said that nurs-
ing home residents can't be active
or that they don't know how, or
that they are not strong enough.
This group can. they did. and they
will continue to stnve for the best.
We can because we have the
best team in our facility; residents
are strong because we have great
facility members and volunteers
who cheer .them on, and we have
staff who care enough to encour-
age, .their residents to build'
strength and character, as stated
by' Sherrie Bowen, activity direc-
tor for SunBridge.
They bring residents to activi-
ties; they take part in their exer-
cise programs, walking outside
and inside, near and far around
town: They are never too busy to
get involved in facility outings and


Optimist Club. The contest is to
be held at the vacant lot beside
City Hall.
Then starting at the City Hall'
end of Reid Avenue at 7:00 p.m.,
the candy will be handed out by
the merchants to all the little
ghosts, goblins, and other scary,
or not-so-scary trick-or-treaters.
This provides a safe, fun, and
bucket-filled alternative for Gulf
County youngsters to enjoy what
could be a very scan' and danger-.
. ous night, of Halloween.
All Port St. Joe merchants are
encouraged to participate in this
event.

Veterans Day is November 11,
but you probably ,ill not find a
greeting card in your, favorite
shop. With 26 million veterans in
the nation, the American Legion
realizes many people would like to
say a special "thank you" to a vet-
eran. That is why the nation's
largest war-time 'veterans organi-
zation is offering a free e-mail
cau


"Many' people forget that
young military men and women
serving .today are veterans. Just
about anywhere they are serving
they have access to e-mail and
receiving a special Veterans Day
card would be a nice surprise."
National Commander Alan G.
Lance, Sr. said.
This is the second 'year the
American Legion has offered the
cards. "Response last year was
excellent, so we expanded the ser-
vice to offer branch. of service
cards with music. Naturally, there
is plenty of room for the personal
message," Lance said.
The Veterans Day card service
is accessed directly from the
American Legion's homepage at
www.legion.org. Once at the site,
it is a simple matter to follow the'
instructions and send your spe-
cial greetings.
"Throughout the last half of
this century, American men and''
women in uniform served in near-
ly every region of the world.
Because of our veterans we have
the freedoms our founding fathers
longed to preserve." Lance said.
President Woodrow Wilson
signed a Congressional Resolution
on November 11, .1919 establish-
ing "Armistice Day." The resolu-
tion said: -This day should be
commemorated with thanksgi-ing
and prayer and exercises
designed to perpetuate peace
through good will and mutual
understanding between nations."
The resolution further called for a
day to be observed in schools and
churches or other suitable places.
with appropriate ceremonies.
Since 1919. November 1 1 has
become Veterans Day. Yet the
same spirit that gave birth to
Armistice Day continues today as
America remembers the men and
women who have served our
country in the military.
"I hope millions of Americans
will send an e-card to a veteran
they know. It will just take you a
moment to send the card. but it
could mean much more to the
person receiving it," Lance said.

Florida Farm Facts
October is "Seafood and'
Aquaculture Month" in Florida,

and aquaculture products con-
tribute to Florida's economy. The
industry provides the state .with
45,000 jobs from fishing and
farming to retail and restaurant
sales.
Florida's commercial fishers
harvested 120 million pounds of
fish and shellfish in 1998, yielding
annual seafood landings worth
more than $200 million at dock-
side; and' contributing $400 mil-
lion annually for at-home con-
sumption sales.
Florida Is also a major pro-
cessing state. Every year more
than 500 seafood processing
plants produce several hundred
million dollars worth of value-
added products. In addition,
restaurant and retail' seafood
sales amount to approximately $1
billion annually.


area's world-famous oysters.,

New Research on Brain Trauma


Reveals Some Surprising Results


A forceful blow to the head
can trigger a "Pacmanlike"
enzyme to begin gobbling up
important structural proteins in
the brain for up to one month
afterward-weeks longer than
previously suspected, according
to a University of Florida Brain
Institute researcher.
The finding, based on studies
. In rats, suggests that treatment
for traumatic brain injury must
take into account tissue damage
that continues 'to occur long after
an accident. Although a number
of studies recently have assessed
therapies for traumatic brain
injury, currently no effective
treatment exists.
"Emergency room medical
personnel often talk about a gold-
en hour, that if you don't get a
person into treatment within the
first hour or so after an injury, a
lot of damage has been done to
the patient," said Ronald L.Hayes,
director of UF's planned Center
for Traumatic Brain Injury
Studies, a component of the uni-
versity's multidisciplinary Brain
i hstitute. "With traumatic brain
injury, the thought has been that
treatment within the -first two,
days is critical."
-But data irom Hayes' lab sug-
gest this critical period may
extend much longer. "In our stud-
ies, we've 'found that a biochemi-
cal storm that is initiated with an
injury continues for at least a
month. The implications is that
we .may need to treat these
patients over a much longer peri-
od than anyone had ever imag-
ined," said' Hayes, who reported
his findings on the action of cal-
pains on October 23 at the annu-
al, meeting of the National
Neurotrauma Society in Miami
Beach. Calpains are a type of pro-
tein-destroying enzyme found in
cells throughout the body.
"This is one of a very few
research efforts that opens up a
potential window for treatment in
which we might be able to sup-
press the harmful activity of cal-
pains while allowing repair to
occur," said Kevin Wang, a senior
research associate at Parke-Davis
Pharmaceutical Research who is
conducting laboratory experi-
ments seeking to block the action,
of calpains. .
Automobile crashes, gunshot
wounds, sporting accidents and
other incidents cause an estmat-
ed 52.000 brain fijiry deaths'
each year in the Unft"d States,
according to the National
Institutes of Health. An additional
70,000 people-with men out-
numbering women two to one-
suffer a blow that results in sub-
stantial ongoing difficulties with
communications tasks, coordina-
tion, memory and thinking. An
estimated 53 million people are
permanently disabled.
Because of the lasting conse-
quences of brain damage. lifetime
costs for care and rehabilitation
for a person with a severe injury
range from 8600.000 to S1.9 mil-

Eva.Lee Wood, 85, of Burgess
Creek, passed away Sunday,
October 24, in Bay Medical Center
following an extended illness. She

has been a resident ,of Gulf

was of the Protestant faith.

1 The funeral services were held
at '2:00 p.m., ET, Wednesday,

I Rosa Belle Parish, 82, of

of Whitfield Hill; four grandchil-
dren, five great-grandchildren,


lion, according to NIH.
Hayes and Brian Pike, an
assistant professor of neuro-
science, conducted their experi-
ments with colleagues at the
University of Texas Medical
School before transferring their
efforts to ,UF this past summer.
The experiments showed that cal-
pains switch on when calcium
floods cells after traumatic brain
injury.
The activation of the calpains
is associated with the death of
brain cells and could contribute to
the extensive atrophy and shrink-
age of the brain seen after trau-
matic injury. ...
"In the.' past several years,
there have been a large number of
clinical trials testing treatments
for brain injury that have shown
no effect," said Hayes, a professor
of neuroscience in UF's College of
Medicine. "Researchers thought
they had an effective therapy, but


when they tried it, the people did-
n't get better. One reason may be
that they didn't treat the patient
long enough because the bio-
chemical storm lasted longer than
two days."
To complicate matters, some
levels of calpain activity may actu-
ally be a necessary part of a "re-
sculping" effort that can repair
damage.
"We ,may have to completely
redefine our approach to therapy,
because if you try to get it there
too early and for too brief a time
with a treatment,, you might not
block the damage that lies ahead."
Hayes said. ."But if you have a
treatment for too long, you might
block some .qfthe self-repair that
will make the patient' better.
Understanding these relation-
ships is critical, and our research
is a necessary first step in this
, effort."

MEDITATIONS OF A
Country react er,

By LOWELL F. ADAMS
i Someone Is
Watching You
"we are comnpassed
about with a great
cloud of witnesses"
SHebrews 12:1'-

MANY OCCASIONS in Scripture, we
have records of angels helping God's children
who find themselves in a dangerous situation. Many be-
lieve each person who follows Jesus has a "guardian an-
gel" watching over them. There is hno specific mention -of
; guardian angels in Scripture, but God does promise to
take care of His own. It certainly would be a practical
way for Him to do this-
In Acts chapter 12 an angel delivered Peter, from
prison. Many other Scripture records. show angels be-,
friending God's people. There may not be a special guar-
dian angel for each Christian, But on the night in which
Jesus was being captured (Matthew 26:47-54) Jesus told
His followers He could:call down more than twelve le-.
gions of angels for help, but the things happening to Him,
must come to pass and fulfill the Bible prophecies con-
cerning Himself
* Very likely those same legions of angels are hover-
ing about you' and me. Hebrews 12 tells us we always
have witnesses. "Seeing we are compassed about with so
great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside the sin thdt so
easily besets us." (Heb. 12:1),
The Holy Spirit gives Christians a sincere desire to
stay within the perfect will of the Heavenly Father. .But
they have to constantly deal with Satan, for as the Word
of God tells us, he is always seeking a way to encourage
us to disobey our Father. Satan has no power to make us
sin, but being spiritual, he can put thoughts and imagi-
nations in our mind. (II Cor. 10:5) Our only weapon of
defense against this is the Word of God. We need to
KNOW the Word of God. ,
So, when Satan whispers into our consciousness,
that the little pet sin we have been clinging to for so long,
-is not all that bad, don't believe him. With God there is
no "little" sin. Sin is sin!
In that same Chapter 10 of II Corinthians, The Bible
tells us the weapons of our warfare is God's Word. May
we not just depend on someone else to tell us what is in
that historic record of God's dealings with mankind. Let
'us dust off that book, The Holy Bible, and learn for our-
selves, what God has told us!

"Ambassadors

In 2 Corinthians 5:20 we find,
"So we are ambassadors for
Christ. God making his appeal
through us. We beseech you on
behalf on Christ, be reconciled to
God."
Oliver F. Talor The apostle Paul encourages
ier n. tayir us, to be an ambassador for
United Methodist Church Christ. To be an ambassador is to
be a walking advertisement for.'
your church and the Christ who is our Savior.' We need
to take the church out of the four walls, and mike it live
in the ,day to day affairs of life.
Some believe the church is shaped by the pastor. This
is partly true. The pastor influences the style and per- .,-.
sonality of the local church. The pastor speaks for and
declares what the church, stands for, and invites people
into its fellowship.
,But the pastor is no substitute for you as an ambas-
sador 'for Christ. Each Christian needs to demonstrate
how the Gospel brings new life.

Florida Garden

Extension Notes

Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


Wax Myrtles Grow

Anywhere in Florida


Wax Myrtle is a native Florida
plant. It matures into a small tree
or shrub; depending on how you
raise it. It can be grown anywhere
in our state. Wax myrtle produces
attractive flowers and fruit. Its
foliage has a unique fragrance. In
this article we'll describe some of
this popular plant's uses and
characteristics, and offer some
information on how it can be
grown as an attractive landscape
specimen.
Being a native plant, wax
myrtle is well-suited to Florida's
soil and climate. You often see
this plant growing wild, along
highways and in uncultivated
areas. Wax myrtle does well in a
moist environment. So, it would
be an excellent choice if you have
a drainage problem in your land-
scape. However, it also grows very
well in drier soils.
Wax myrtle also is cold hardy,
salt tolerant, and relatively free of'
insect and disease problems. My
information on this desirable
native Floridian was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulture
Specialist Dr. Robert Black, of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Wax myrtle is unisexual,
which means that male and

female flowers are produced on
separate plants. Female flowers
grow in close bunches, and pro-
duce fruitthat are round, light
green and .about an eighth of an
inch in diameter. The fruit is coat-
ed with a thick, bluish wax that
may be used in making candles.
Crush a few leaves of the wax
myrtle, and you'll notice that the
plant gives a very nice aroma,
known as bayberry. In fact, this
popular fragrance is one of the
plants most attractive features. A
northern relative of the wax myr-
tle is the bayberry tree, which pro-
duces large berries, used exten-
sively in making fragrant bayberry
candles.
Wax myrtles may reach a
height of 25 feet. Their leaves are
evergreen-narrow at the base
and broader toward the upper
end. About midway up the leaf,
coarse teeth appear on the edges.
Wax myrtles produce suckers,
which are small plants, that
sprout- from the roots. These
suckers grow in clumps or clus-
ters, and if undisturbed, they will
eventually form very large dense
plants However. if you remove
these suckers from the main
.trunk, attractive, small trees can
be produced. The trunk of a wax
myrtle is grayish-white in color.
Wax myrtles can be grown
from seeds, cuttings, and by sin-
gle layering. You should sow seeds
as soon as they) mature. The seeds
can be started in a mixture of
equal parts of sand and peat
moss. Another method of propa-
gating wax myrtles is to dig the
established plants during the win-
ter months, Cut the plants back
to within a few inches of the
ground. Dig out the root clumps
and set them in containers.
Within! several months, you'll
have good-sized plants, which
may develop into small trees in
just a' lew years. ;
Fortunately,. there's only one
serious pest of wax myrtle. It's a
caterpillar, which chews leaves
and, ties terminal shoots together.
For details on' control of these
pests. and further cultural sug-
gestions, check with our favorite
garden supply center, or your
county extension office.
In summary, wax myrtles are
among the most desirable native
plants to use in Florida land-
scapes. They thrive in moist sand
soils, and need.very litte mainte-
nance or pest .protection.


How to Lower Cholesterol

In Many Older Americans


Why it is important
As with many other things .in
life, "the sooner the better" applies
to lowering your cholesterol. But
unlike many other things, it's also'
"never too late" to lower your cho-
lesterol level. Even if you have had
a heart attack or have heart dis-
ease, lowering your cholesterol
can help, you live healthier ad .-
live longer. If you are healthy, low-
ering your cholesterol can help
you prevent heart disease from
developing. ,
As a group, older men a-d
women have more heart-related
health problems than younger
people. Because the risk of heart
disease goes up with age, it is,
important to know what your cho-
lesterol numbers are and to take
action to lower high cholesterol.
The good news is that studies
show older people get benefits
from cholesterol lowering similar
to those of younger people, and
both women and men can reduce
their risk. There are many things
you can do to lower your ,choles- 1
terol level. See'the steps below for '
Ili fe habit changes you, can make.
STEPS YOU CAN TAKE
*Find out your cholesterol(
numbers. Have your cholesterol'
measured; as part of a medical
visit when information about
other risk factors, such as family
historyv, smoking, high blood pres-
sure, diabetes, obesity, and phys-
ical, activity, can be discussed-
with your doctor.
*Eat heart-healthy foods
that are low in saturated fat"
and cholesterol. Good choices
include fruits and v;egetables,,
skim milk, low-fat yogurt, cereals.
and whole grain breads. Cut back
on fried foods and foods with
gravy or cream sauce.
Instead, try grilling or broiling
skinless poultry, fish, or lean cuts
of meat. For desserts, choose sor-
bets, sherbet, nonfat frozen
yogurt, graham crackers, or low-
fat baked goods instead of high-
fat items like cake, cheesecake. or
pie.
*Be physically active.,
Check with your doctor. Most
older people can follow this plan:
For heart health, try 30 minutes
of moderate physical activity on,
most days.
Examples include walking,
gardening, dancing, swimming,;
and golfing. If you are pressed for
..time. divide the 30 minutes into
three ,10-minute sessions. Lifting
light wveights can help strengthen.,
bones. ,
*Maintain a healthy
weight. Being overweight raises
your cholesterol level and increas-
es your risk of getting heart dis-
ease.
e.Get smoke free. Cigarette
smoking. is a strong risk factor for
heart disease. Stopping smoking
reduces your risk for heart dis-
ease, lung cancer, and other can-
cers.
*Ask your doctor about
cholesterol-lowering medica-
tion. In some cases, medication


might be needed to lower your
cholesterol level. If your doctor
has prescribed cholesterol-lower-
ing medication for you. be sure to
take it as directed and continue to
follow the heart-healthy habits
described above.

Education Program's "Live
