Car Chase Ends In aged



Panama City Man Fatall Shot by Gulf Deputies After Series of Events


A 40 year old Panama City
man was, fatally shot by Gulf
County deputies Monday evening
after a series of events ended in
an apparent life-threatening con-
frontation.
The episode began at appar-
ently 9:45 p.m., ET, when the
sheriffs office dispatcher received
a call from a young lady stating


she had been run off the roadway
(Highway 71) just north of White
City. A white male had used his
vehicle to run her off the road
then attempted to drag her out of
the vehicle.
She threatened to use her cell.
phone to call police and report the
incident. The suspect grabbed the
phone and returned to his car


Investigators mark crime scene north of White City.



Dog Flies, Signage, and


Scallop Season at Top

of County Co'mm. Agenda


Gulf County commissioners
worked a gamut of issues during
the regular meeting Tuesday
evening. Topping that list was a
request from Tammy Summers,
Aquatic Preserve Coordinator. for
the board to support a resolution
shortening scallop season by
three weeks and banning the har-
vesting of live shells from St.
Joseph Bay.
Summers presented the
board with documentation that
indicated a reduction in scallop
counts, especially over the past
few years. She said both requests
were supported by the St. Joseph
Bay Committee and several mem-
bers of that group were present at
the board's meeting.
It would be the 2002 scallop
season at the earliest before aniy
changes could be enacted,.
according to Summers.
The board was asked to con-
sider the request and attend a
Workshop to be anhouniced in
April.
Sign Ordinance
Placing signage on county
right-of-ways is against the law
and could cost violators big
bucks. During Tuesday's meeting,
the board decided to take some of
the bite out of the current fines,
but begin putting teeth into the
enforcement end.

Mexico Beach
CDC Meets Today
The regular meeting of the
Mexico Beach Community,
Development Council,. Inc. will be
held today (Thursday), February
15th, at 10:00 a.m. in the Mexico
Beach Civic Center.
The board will approve the
January meeting minutes and
monthly financial report, as well
as hear updates from its chairper-
son, committee, and president/
CEO.
The agreement to terminate
the current canal contract and
the issue of a new canal mainte-
nance contract will be re-
addressed.
New business on tap
includes: trade show financial
assistance to local business; pur-
chase of a ,laptop for the new
office ($1,200); the city's Tom
Sawyer ,Day ($2,000)-Canal
Park, Children's park and
entrances; Gulf County coopera-
tive advertising; monthly advertis-
ing in Tyndall's Gulf Defender;
and setting a budget workshop for
the 2001-2002 fiscal year.
Board members are asked to
please attend, as well as all other
interested parties.


Current fines, according to.
county ordinance, call for a first *
14me violator to pay ,S250 per
charge per sign for placing sig-.
nage on county right-of-ways.,
During discussions, the
board unanimously agreed to
advertise to amend the current
ordinance's wording to fines of
$75 per violation for a first offense
and S100 for additional offenses
for violators of the ordinance.
The change will have to be
advertised and a public hearing
held before the board can amend
current policy. After which, the
board instructed Building Official
Michael Hammond and Code
Enforcement Officer Anthony
Varona to begin issuing citations
for violations of the ordinance.
Dog Fly Resolution
Commissioners were quick to
place their stamp of approval on a
"resolution calling for the continu-
ation of the state-sponsored "Dog
' Fly" spray program. Word is that
Governor Jeb Bush is looking 'at
the program as a possible pro-
gram to cut in the upcoming bud-
get.
Coastal counties would then
be forced, to deal with the spray
program themselves should the
funds go away..
During the workshop with
Representative Bev Kilmer,
Commissioner Jerry Barnes
requested the representative's
assistance to help maintain the
program as is. She pointed but
that iA's her. understanding that
the governor feels this is a local
issue and should be handled by
individual counties. She pledged
to do her best to help.
In Other Business
*Tabled a request to declare,
the Gulf County Economic
Development Council (EDC), the
economic development contact for
Gulf -County. The Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce is current-
ly designated: as the economic
engine for the county.
According to'. Chief
Administrator Don Butler, the
EDC chose to sever relations with
the Chamber of Commerce. The
EDC has a not-for-profit status
and is wishing to handle contacts
for economic development them-
selves.,
Commissioner Billy Traylor's
motion to move forward with the
designation died for lack of a sec-
ond. The board decided to table
the matter until Friday afternoon
at 5:00 p.m., ET, when they will
hold a workshop session' in the
newly refurbished old Gulf
County courthouse in

a and drove off.,
The young.lady went to White
i City and used a phone at a
Friend's home to contact the sher-
iffs office and make them aware
of the events that had taken place
and direction of travel of the sus-
pect-north on Highway 71. She
also gave a good -description of the
sus-pect and his vehicle.
Sheriffs office deputies spot-
ted the vehicle south of
Wewahitchka near the 5-Acre
Farms area. A chase ensued tray-
'eling north on Highway 71 toward
Wewahitchka.
Meanwhile, spike strips had
been set out on Highway 71 in
Wewahitchka in an effort to dis-
able the vehicle by flattening its
tires. The driver avoided both sets
of .spikes and proceeded through
Wewa.
At about this point, the driver
'used the stolen cell phone to call
9-1-1. After making contact, he
left the phone line open through-
out the duration of the chase,
which was all recorded by 9-1-1
operators.
Approximately one mile fur-
ther north on Highway 71, the
vehicle veered off the roadway
and crashed into Corner Stone
Concrete, Inc. in Wewahitchka
destroying a wall and window
before coming to rest inside the
building. ,


Thomas Hadder is pictured cleaning out the inside of Corner
Stone Concrete. Stellato's vehicle rested within it after the crash.

"Corrections Jobs Are Not


Going Away," Says Klmer

New Deputy Minority Whip Holds Workshop


State. -Representative Bev
Kilmer 'was in Gulf County
Tuesday evening to hold a work-
shop/public meeting.
After the Gulf County Board
of Commissioners finished its reg-
ularly scheduled meeting, Rep.
Kilmer took center stage. She
fielded several questions, intro-
duced her staff, and outlined her'
new responsibilities after being
appointed to several legislative
committees important to her dis-
trict.
One of those comnrrttees is'
the law enforcement. crime pre-
vention, and corrections commit-
tee. Needless to say this is a very
important committee within her
district, and one especially close
to Gulf County's heart since the
closure of the mill.
Rep. Kilmer was instrumental
in the push to get the G.C.IL
Annex open and, putting displaced
Gulf County workers back to
work. She and Governor Jeb
Bush highlighted those efforts,
and followed through with them
during economic task force meet-
ings held with Gulf County Task
Force members in Tallahassee
nearly two years ago.


When asked by. Gulf County
Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr.
where those jobs stood now, Rep.
Kilmer was quick to respond.
"Corrections jobs are not going
away.. .. .
She went' on to explain that
she and others worked way too
hard to bring the econorrumic pack-
age to Gulf County' to see it go
away.
She also pointed out that
rumors of efforts to privatize more
pnsons were exactly that I'm
not aware of any efforts." she stat-
ed, "They (corrections jobs) are
safe and I'll fight to the bitter end'
to protect them."
She went-on to answer sever-
al questions and agreed to do
what she could to help with sever-
al needs within the community .
Rep. Kilmer's committee'
assignments include-chair of the
College and University
Committee; Law Enforcement,
Crime \ Prevention, and
Corrections; Council for Lifelong
Learning (all education bills go
through this council); Economic
Development and international
Trade (she serves in the center of
an eight county area designated


as areas of critical economic con-
cern); Procedural Council (all bills
for consideration are forwarded
by this council);: and House
Redistricting Committee.
Rep. Kilmer announced her
intentions to continue to maintain
her Gulf County office and she
introduced Brenda Rees as. her
new local contact person. Debbie
Dennis was also introduced as
part of her Tallahassee staff.
Named Deputy Majority Whip
This Tuesday, House Majority
Leader Mike Fasano appointed
Rep. Kilmer as a Deputy Majority
Floor Whip in the Florida House of
Representatives.
"Yesterday, I announced the.
appointment of our two freshmen
Floor Whips," said Fasano.
"Today, I'm proud to add experi-
ence to our team with the
appointment of Bev Kilmer."
"After her 1998 election, Bev
quickly earned a i-eputation as
one of the hardest working mem-
bers in the Florida House. That
hard work has made her one of
our most knowledgeable and

Hunker Down With Kes


by Kesley Colbert


Justice Prevails


Big Government


='s Big Problems


One of the rallying cries of President George W. Bush's
campaign jargon was to keep the reins pulled tight on big gov-
ernment.
Brother, Governor Jeb, didn't fall far from the tree either,
and he is raising a few eyebrows with his proposal to make
major reductions in the number of state employees over the
next five years.
What were those famous words J.F.K. proclaimed Ask
not what your country can do for you, but ask what you canr
do for your country."
I believe President Kennedy had a good idea of the dangers
of government doing too much, as well as having an apparent
insight of the nature and tendencies of men.
Now don't misunderstand what I'm saying here-city,
county, state, and federal governments must employ workers.
It's when the number of,workers and their tasks begin com-
peting with or taking the place of jobs that could be handled
equally, as well as, or better by private sector employment that
we have problems.
It's a scary thought indeed to imagine that a governmental
workforce,could become so powerful that it could have signifi-
cant impact on the ebb and flow of policy especially when
those policies include themselves.
There are a lot of folks who seem to be taking exception to
the governor's stand to reduce the state's workforce over an
extended period of time by as much as 25%.
Gulf County has been more than blessed over the past few
years by an influx of state jobs. Where would we be were it not
for a commitment from the governor to move forward with the
opening of the Gulf Correctional Institute Annex? State jobs
have been a lifeline for many of our local residents in an
extreme time of need.
This was an outstanding example of something good done
by state government that was a tremendous benefit to this
community in a time.of need.
The same governor who helped our community in its time
of need is now being labeled as "insane" by some who seem to
think cutting government might threaten them. Let me be first
to say I'm in no hurry to see our gravy train derailed. In fact,
I hope GCI stays intact just as it is for a long, long time.to
come.
I do believe that the governor is right on target with his
efforts to keep government streamlined, efficient, and produc-
tive. I also believe Gulf County has experienced first hand
enough of his character to believe he will be fair and of good
heart in his efforts to all Floridians.

I don't know much about
courtrooms. I saw Atticus Finch
lawyering to beat the band in To
Kill A Mockingbird. I watched 627
consecutive Perry Mason's just to
see if that guy could lose a case
And I've read. with fascination
about a trial up in Dayton,
Tennessee, back in 1925 that dealt.
with evolution' and education and
monkeys...... I sure would like to
have been there for that one!
That's about the extent of my
courtroom knowledge.
Mother wouldn't even let me
go down and listen to the testimo-,
ny in the Loco Halliburton trial.:'
That whole case revolved around
moonshine and murder. And, as
you might suspect, Mom .wasn't
too big on either.
I was delighted to be invited
this past week to the old'-Gulf,
County courthouse in Wewa. To
get closer to the people, or at least

But there's food at a reception.
And if folks are going to put
together a little ceremony to wel-
come the judge and allow the curi-
ous to roam about the refurbished
courtroom .... Shucks, I felt duty
bound to be there
You will not believe our court-
house! It is absolutely beautiful! I
got so interested in looking around
that I forgot the food!
I have no clue who decided to
restore the place. But you ought to
look them up and thank them. I'm
not sure who they found to do all.
the actual work, but some of them
must have been at that trial up in
Dayton ....
I could smell the slightly used
cuspidors. the cigar smoke, the
lilac water, the Vitalis .
I could hear the gavel fall,
"Order, order, I'll have no more.
outbursts in this courtroomm" I
could feel the silence overtake the


audience. the jury. bailiff, witness.
accused. and both counsels. I got
kinda still myself. The wind drift-
ing silently through the open win-
do\vs seem to understand the com-
mand.
I could see the Clarence
Darrow like attorney, with his bow
tie and suspenders milk the quiet-
ness for all it xn as worth. Finally he
stirred. He ran a hand through his,
hair. He gestured toward Heaven.
He stared at the witness. He nod-
ded to the jury as if to say sureltj
you got it! He glanced again at the
witness. One more nod to the jury.
He turned dramatically toward his
chair, his back .to the bench, and
with a flair, "I have no more ques-
tions."
I was with him! I wasn't sure.if.
he was defending or prosecuting,
but he. had convinced me. I know
he was right! And I was ready to
vote-
"Kes, would you like some-
thing to drink." It took me a sec-
ond to get back.
I looked over the other invitees
at this reception and realized that
we had some serious trial material
already assembled. I tried to spot
the really guilty looking ones .


I surveyed the giant bench-
behind which the noted judge
handed down his decisions. It was
surely part of this onginal court-
room placed here in the mid-twen-'
ties. The small sign attached to the
front proudly proclaimed that it
was "NManufactured by A. J. B[Ith
Company, Mobile, Ala."
Listen, if,I had been A. J. Blyth
and could turn out work like this.
I'd 'a put my name on it too! The,
chairs were made by "The Marble,
& Shattuck Chair. Co.-Cleveland"
I wanted to take one of them home
with me i the worst way, but
there were too many people look-'
ing. ...
I'm telling you, you've got to
see this place to believe it!
When the grown-ups got face:
deep in the finger food, I moseyed.
over to the aforementioned- half-.
open window. I love a courtroom,
on- the second floor! I leaned out
across the foot-and-a-half window

rock and watched the air move my

I'VE GOT TWO subjects to
write about this week. Usually.
I'm scratching my head, trying to
think of .one subject that I can

I think I'll save the one with a
historical flavor until next .week
and explore the one about the
weather we are having.
I don't know Whether or not
it's officially spring, but today
[Thursday] it certainly feels like it

days, just like these

They make quite a ceremony out


ETAOIN SHRDLU


Written by Wesley Ramsey


of the annual stirring of fat old
Phil.

WE ALL KNOW, by now, that
Phil saw his shadow.
Immediately, the weather
started off.as if it was going to
slam us with six more weeks, of
winter.
Last Friday, I was 'on the way
to Bay Memorial, to take my week-
ly iron infusion, when I noticed
small dots on my windshield and
after a time of trying to figure out
what they were. I surmised that it
was drops of sleet!
" Now, this, Thursday, the
Japanese tulips are blooming!


What a change!' What a welcome
change
got to the hospital treatment
room and the nurses [the majority
* of whom are from Port St. Joe]
were all belly-aching about the
current gas bills. Come to find
out, all neighboring counties got
gas bills that would gag a horse. I
hadn't received mine, yet.
They came along in the last
gasp of winter. Sort of a farewell
gift, don't you know. '

I'VE ENJOYED EACH morn-
ing, here of late, after I eat break-
fast [or more correctly, drink it], I,
spend some quality time, sittitig


near our wood-burning stove,
toasting on first one side, then
another. Smudgie comes and lays
in my lap and the two of us soak
up the heat, getting ready for the
day.
I don't know, but I think I'm
going to miss these days of winter.
They have been .the perfect
excuse for staying inside where
it's warm if one could keep the
gas bill paid.
Remember, about two or three
years ago, we received .a gas bill
which was larger than life, during
either January or February.
It, too, was caused by the
scarcity of the commodity, rather
than the local gas company lining
its pockets for the period of
drought which was ahead of
them. They have a way of calling
our attention to the fact that the
Product' needs some help from
public demand.
Just think of those poor
souls, up north, who have normal
gas bills which run $100-$200 a


month. Their bills must have been
something terrific.

BUT, THAT'S WHY Florida is
here; to supply a place of refuge
for those who are seeking a refuge
from the cold weather. We're
thinking "Spring activities" here
while. they are just beginning to
dig out from under the snow up
north. Down south, we are think-
ing Mardi Gras parades while up
north they're just beginning to
crack the front door to peer out-
side.
You understand, I am still'
wearing my sweater, but it won't
be long before I can shed it. It
won't be long.
I'm glad that sleet of last week
took a while to decide upon and
didn't come in any great amount!
Watching the weather report
for the last few weeks and being
somewhat vaguely familiar with
Oklahoma weather, I pity those
folks this year.
It sleeted and snowed there


this year for weeks on end. Mostly
sleet, if my memory still serves
me.
For any .of you who don't
know the difference, sleet is,
frozen snow, or ice! It's twice as
cold as snow .and takes colder
weather to produce. The ground is
coated in- ice following a sleet
storm and the roads are in no
condition for even slow driving.
When it sleets, things come to
a standstill. I

WE DON'T HAVE severe
weather like that here. I remem-
ber the last time it snowed here in
Port St. Joe, but I'll like to forget
it.
It happened in the month of
"February, by the. way; the latter,
part of February.
I hope this spell of spring
weather lasts and doesn't give way
to more cold. It can, you know. '

'Old Gulf County Courtroom Is Refurbished
,t '' '"'e f t i `, 'b: ",' .


Gulf County Judge Fred N.
Witten received a surprise when
he arrived at the old Gulf County
courthouse in Wewahitchka last
Friday, February 9th, for the
opening, one day per week, of an
office extension.
A group of local residents and
current operating staff at the old
courthouse complex had put
together a welcoming reception
and combination christening of
.the, recently refurbished court-
room and judge's chambers.
Judge Witten had planned to
open the judge's chambers on
Friday's as a matter of conve-
nience and responsibility to make
the judge's office accessible to all
residents of the county. Some res-
idents in the northern end of the
county currently have to travel
between 30 to 45 minutes to
receive service at the courthouse
in Port St. Joe.
Judge Witten said this annex,
office site will aid those residents,
especially the ones who are hard-
*' shipped for various reasons
because of the distance.
But, while he did anticipate
eventually holding jury trials in
the- old courtroom, he never
expected the area to be totally
refurbished upon his arrival
Friday.
Three weeks ago, when Judge
Witten announced the opening of
the office on Fridays, the county
work force put the wheels in
motion to finish a renovation pro-
ject that.was st-rted in 1992.
: One of the biggest projects left
to complete,.was seating. While

Darn it! Too short. I spit again,
this time I raised my sight-
"Kesley, what in the world are
you doing?"
"Just looking."
I moved over to the jury box
and' sat down in the foreman's
seat. All of a sudden I felt like Loco
Halliburton's life was in my hands.
I took my turn on the witness
stand, "Well, sir, it's like this, I saw
Mr. Halliburton running from his
house just after I heard the shots .

I tried the defendant's chair. I
was immediately overcome by fear
and an overwhelming urge to jump
up and shout, "J didn't do it! It was
the butler! I tell you, I'm innocent!"
I moved over to the next chair
and challenged the witness and
waved my arms and appealed to
the bench and explained over and
over that we didn't exactly know
for sure how the moonshine got
into Loco's stomach. .
I sat in the judge's seat.
Funny? I didn't feel any smarter!

"I don't believe we. should call

"It's hard to believe what

just three weeks." said County
Commissioner Billy Traylor as he
commended them for their efforts

began yelling threats to shoot the
law enforcement officers. Officers,
in turn, yelled back ordering the
suspect to drop his gun and lay
down. He continued threatening
to kill deputies and deputies
responded by ordering the sus-
pect to lay down his gun and lay
on the ground.
In the subdued light, the sus-
pect then made motions that indi-
'cated he had a gun and was
preparing to fire on deputies.
They responded by discharging
their firearms at the suspect
inside the building. He was struck
by one. of the shots and pro-
nounced dead en route to Bay
Medical Center.
'Indications are that he could
have been intentionally trying to
provoke the shooting incident.
SThesuspect was identified as
Stephen Stellat6o, a 40 year old
white male, of Panama City.
After the incident, no firearm
was discovered in the victim's
possession contrary to what he
had stated and was preserved on
9-1- 1 recordings.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement Mobile Crime
Lab was called in to process the
scene and the 14th Judicial
Circuit State Attorney's Office was
requested to investigate the inci-
dent.
:Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeitherin. made the following
statement, "Although the situa-
tion had a tragic and unfortunate
ending. I feel that officers acted


appropriately and professionally
given the circumstances they
were confronted with. Until the
investigation is complete, any fur-
ther press release will be made by
the State Attorney's Office."

Knife-Wielding

Suspect Nabbed
Shortly before 4 a.m. on
Tuesday, February 13th, Port St.
Joe resident Darrell A. Garland
was arrested by Port St. Joe Police
Department Officer James
.Stephens and charged with
attempted murder and resisting
arresting with violence (five
counts),
Officers Stephens and Russell
Burch were responding to a
reported complaint that a male
subject was threatening individu-
als inside a residence in North
Port St. Joe. During their investi-
gation, Garland assaulted Burch
with a knife. The officers contin-
ued to instruct Garland to stop
and drop the knife, but he did not
comply.
Gulf County Sheriffs Office
Deputies Shawn Butler. Paul
Beasley. and Jake Richards
shortly arrived on the scene as
back-up.
After several attempts to get
the suspect to drop the knife, he
was finally disarmed and taken to
the ground. Garland, 37, was
handcuffed and transported to
the Gulf County Jail.

many NCAA. records, hit a three-
run home run in the first game to.
xin the game for Erskine 4 to 3

bration for the Youngblood family
by winning the second game 7 to;
2. The record books are currently,

Seniors Neglect

Dental Care


Teeth get old too, but often,
the older they are the less they're
cared for. Although older
Americans need dental care as
much as they did when they were
young, a recent study found that
the elderly are the least frequent
users of dental services.
The damaging influences of
aging include normal wear-and-
tear leading to gum recession,
increasing brittleness of enamel
prompting cracks, fractures and


darkening of teeth, advanced gum
disease and increased incidence
Sof oral cancer.
The study recognized that
transportation problems in getting
to the dentist and income limita-
tions may also be. factors.
However, it concluded that elderly
patients' attitude are most respon-
sible for their not seeing the den-
tist. They see no need to go except
for relief of pain.
Many seniors believe that los-
ing teeth with age is as normal as
getting gray hair. Not true, seniors.
Your teeth should last as tong as
you do with proper care.


Over the past twelve years, Dr. May and his staff have satis-
fied thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art,
painless dentistry in a gentle and caring manner. Can Dr. May
help you? Call 227-1123 for a Risk Free consultation.

A man was stopped for
speeding, and fined. But he
protested, "The fine's too high.
I'm a poor preacher."
"Yes, I know," admitted the
policeman. "I heard you preach
last Sunday."
Many of us are poor preachers,
yet our Lord commanded, "Go ye
into all the world, and preach the
gospel."
"But," you say, "I can't preach."
You can, if you want to. The word
PREACH is spelled P-R-E-A-C-H.
Remove the letter P and you
have REACH. Remove the letter
R and you have EACH. To
PREACH is to REACH EACH of
your family and friends for Christ.
That's your duty. Make it your
delight. Don't be a poor preacher.


To Tell The Truth
Have you ever had your back
against the wall?
With a decision to make,
that you had rather not make at all.
When you get so bent out of shape
that you think you have to lie,
Youineed to think about it first
and ask yourself why.'
If you're living1for God. He won't let
Syou by.
'I've been there and done that, is the
...: reason I know why
while reading Proverbs 6, God con-
Svicted me one day.
I had to go and tell truth,
and do it right away.
It was dne of the hardest things
I have ever had to do.
But one of the most rewarding feel-
ings when I got through.

to read the % hole book for yourselves
In looking, at successful teens.
Sone rrught want to also look at the
habits of meflecuve teens. Here are
their habits! 1 React or blame others
for" your problems. 2 Begin with no
end n rrrmind .or don't ha%.e a plan 3s&
P1, Ifirst things last or-wait until the
last minute to do what is most impor-
tant 4. Think win-lose or that life is
always a competitive situation. 5.
Seek first to talk, and then pretend to
listen. 6. Don't cooperate 7. Wear
yourself out and be too buss to
improve yourself.
How do you stack up to these
not-so-good habits' '

Irish Potatoes


for North Florida


The Irish potato is a good
choice for most Florida gardens.


When planted in the late winter or
early spring (February through


Appreciative of Support

Florida Garden

Extension Notes

by
Roy Lee Carter

Gulf County Extension Service


March 10), 100 pound of seed
should produce 10 bushels or
more of 'potatoes. Use certified
seed potato where possible. Avoid
tablestock potato as planting
stock as you may get a poor vari-
ety or one that will not sprout.
Each seed piece should be cut
into a.two-ounce size and should
have two br more,eyes.
The cut seedpiece could be
dusted with a fungicide such as
captain to prevent seedpiece
decay. Fall planting is not advis-
able. For' planting. it is best to
first Make a raised bed about six,
inches high and one to two feet
wide. If several rows are to be
planted, space these rows 36 to
42 inches apart In the garden.
Then open a seed furrow three to
four inches deep down the center
of the row. Place the seed pieces
into the furrow at eight to 12 inch
intervals. Cover and water the
freshly planted rows. When
preparing the bed, make sure you
have used liberal amounts of fer-
tilizer, one quart of 10-10-10 fer-
tilizer per 50 feet or row space:.
Sidedress potatoes twice three
weeks 'apart with one pound of
10-10-10 per 50 feet of row space.


Many gardeners are surprised
to see small green, tomato-like
fruits forming on the tops of
potato plants at certain times of
the year. These fruits are not the
result of crossing of potatoes with
tomatoes, but are the natural
fruits of the potato plant. Dig your
potatoes in May before the sum-
mer rains begin. Varieties recom-
mended for north Florida are the
round whites such as Atlantic,
Sebago, and superior, and the
round reds like Red Lasoda and
Red Pontiac. Do not plant the long
baking types as they grow poorly.
For more detail information
on growing Irish potatoes please
call your Cooperative Extension
Office or local garden center.


Did You Know. .
Fiber is an important part of
a healthy diet. Breads and cereals
wiLh the highest fiber content
have grains listed first on the
ingredient label. To help boost
your fiber intake, eat whole fruits
and vegetables, including the edi-
ble peel.

currently features the timing, size
and composition of a tax cut pack-
age that Congress and the presi-

an important discussion,: arguing
about the details of a tax cut before

budget is putting the cart- before

to,-end the cart's cargo of a strong
economy into a jumbled mess.
Before we launch into a full-
fledged debate over which taxes to
cut, how deeply to cut them, and
when to apply the knife, Congress,
must agree on a budget plan that
preserves the fiscal discipline nec-

lished deadlines and produced
irresponsibly, high spending. A
budget \which establishes new,
realistic spending caps will restore
sorely needed budgetary discipline.
Honest Surplus Figures.
Bipartisan. majorities of Congress
have voted repeatedly, overwhelm-
ingly and with great fanfare to
place Social Security and Medicare
trust funds off limits. But advo-
cates of a large tax cut convenient-
ly ignore those,, bipartisan votes"
and continue to cite surplus fig-
ures that include these "out of'
bounds" surpluses in order to
make their tax cuts seem more
affordable.
Flexibility. Surplus projec-
tions are exactly that-projections.
In 1990, the projected budget for
the year 1995 was off by several
hundred billion dollars. Likewise,
in 1995 the projected budget for
the forthcoming five ,ear interval
was off by a similarly sizable pro-
portion. .
I Our most accomplished e.cono-
mists cannot predict natural disa s
ters, military crises, or '\. other
unforeseen circumstances that
require government funds.. Even
the financial strains we can pre-
dict, such as the retirement of the
baby boom generation, can not be
fully appreciated a decade in


) !


I


advance.
SEnacting policies, today that

consume most, or all, of the pro-
jected surplus will hamstring the
flexibility of future Congresses to
deal with future circumstances
and priorities. Federal Reserve
Chairman Alan Greenspan high-
lighted this uncertainty in his tes-
timony before the Senate Budget
Committee last week in advising
caution about making commit-
ments based on projections. In his
testimony, he warned that "the
risk of adverse movements in
receipts is still real. and the proba-
bility of dropping back into deficit
as a consequence of imprudent fis-
cal policies is not negligible."
Debt Relief. Chairman Alan
Greenspan has repeatedly advised
that paying down the publicly-held
debt is one the most important
actions we can take to maintain a
strong and growing economy.
Reducing our national debt
helps investors who closely follow
fluctuations in the interest rate;
moreover, it will provide an imme-
diate "tax cut" for. every American
that carries a student loan, car
payment,, mortgage. or small busi-
ness loan. By signaling a real com-
mitment to fiscal discipline,'
Congress can win the confidence of
markets which is necessary for
growth and stability in. the short.
and long-term.
I am eager to work with:
President Bush on his agenda,:
including tax cuts. But I will not,
sacrifice fiscal discipline in order to
do so. There is room for discussion'
and compromise on the exact size
and nature of a potential tax cut,
as long as changes are considered
in the context of honestly balanc-
ing competing budget demands.-
But before we squander the
strong economy of the last several
years by abandoning our hard-won
fiscal discipline, we should first
take a step back and find common
ground on a fiscally responsible
budget framework that allows for
debt relief. tax cuts, and spending
priorities. ,
During the week of Februarvi
19. I will be hosting town hall
meetings throughout North Florida
to discuss the importance of
responsible governing.
I encourage everyone -to
attend. If you would like. more
information on these meetings.
please call my office at ,(850) 561-
3979.

a winner, the' Nature Conser.
vancy's Florida Chapter wants to
see it ..The conservancy is cele-
brating its 40th anniversary by
holding a photo contest for ama-
teur photographers.
"Many people relate to Florida
through pictures; whether it's a
sunset along the Florida coast or
an image of the wildlife found
here," said Bob Bendick, director
of the Florida Chapter. "We're
interested in finding images of our
state that move people to want to
save Florida's beaches, rivers,
lakes and forests."
The contest is open to ama-
teur photographers only. All
images must be taken in Florida.
Winning images will be chosen
from the following four categories:
1. Wild places (unspoiled
landscape); 2. wildlife (animals in
their native habitats); 3. people
(people protecting, :enjoying or
learning from the natural environ-
ment); and 4. flora (plants and
plant communities in their nat-
ural surroundings)
Prize-winning photos will be
posted on the Florida Chapter's
web site and will be exhibited later
in the year. Contest rules and an
,entry form can be found at
www.tncflorida.org. Those with-
out Internet access can send a
