Voluntary AIDS


Testing On Hold


Preliminary plans to do vol-
untary HIV testing in the Gulf
County school system was met
with objections from a group of
parents and has been stopped.
According to Gulf County
Superintendent of Schools Jerry
Kelley, the school board was
approached by the Gulf County
Health Department with the idea
of doing voluntary testing. Bay
BASIC testing and the Gulf
Count' Health Department were
to have been responsible for lthe
testing,, screening, and re- and
post-counseling.
During the planning process,'
the school board, principals, and
* ,parent advisory board had sup-
ported the concept of free, volun-
tary HIVtesting, with signed par-
ent permission slips required.
Superintendent Kelley said
the board re-evaluated the pro-
posal after receiving complaints
from parents who were concerned
about the process and tesung
confidentiality.
Kelley went onr to say he
hopes the heightened awareness
has brought a new focus to the
HIV virus. "We need increased
education on the subject and to
make it known that testing is
available," he said.
Gulf County Health
Department Director Doug Kent
agreed %ith Kelley. He explained
that a simple non-invasive test is
available to students, free of
charge, at the. Gulf County Health
Department. He said the health
department and staff was simply
being pro-active in efforts. to
address sexually transmitted dis-


ease.

action the board was going to
take.
This statement was countered;
by invited response from Clay
Smallwood, president of St. Joe
Timberland, that the jury verdict
found Gates innocent of the two
counts against him, but did not
declare ownership of roads.
Smallwood went on to say the
company would be glad to discuss
the status of some of the roads
that are closed -with the county
commissioners and would consid-
er opening some roads, if it makes
sense to do so.
Blackwell responded that this
issue would likely come up in
court again. She :also said the
people want the roads opened and
that it was entertainment for peo-
pie to take their children riding on
the dirt roads.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
pointed out that the county did
not have a deed. or easement to
the road. and could not claim it.
He did state that the county had
graded the road at points and
times in the past, but had
stopped several years ago because
of the expense and inconvenience.

"'Teacher Of The Year"


Diane. McKeithen, English
and drama instructor at Port St.
Joe High School since the 1998-
1999 school year, is Gulf County's
newly selected ';2002 Teacher of
the Year." McKeithen received the
honor last Tuesday evening at the
Gulf School District Dinner and
Awards Banquet.
The honoree has 22 years of
experience sprinkled among
English, drama, speech. and gift-
ed English from the Bay County
School System. She earned her
Bachelor of Science degree in
.speech and English from Auburn
University and added gifted in
1986 from .t Florida State
University.,
McKeithen was selected from
a dedicated field which included
Sherry Herring (Wewahitchka Jr.-
Sr. High School), Esther Taunton
(Wewahitchka Elementary
School). Pam Watford (Port St. Joe.
Middle School), and Barbara.


Whitfield (PortSt. Joe Elementary
School).
Each of the individual'
school's 'Teacher of the'Year" was
selected by her fellow faculty,
members, based upon well-estab-
lished criteria which included:
*a superior ability to teach
and communicate knowledge;
*the effective use of relative
supplementary materials:
*outstanding school and
community involvement; and
S capacity to inspire a love of
learning to all students.
As. a token of appreciation,
the county's "Teacher of the Year"
received $1,000 in addition to a
$75,0 cash award from Burdines
and $500 from the State of
Florida. Each school's winner
received a cash award of $500.
Gulf County Superintendent
of Schools Jerry Kelley gave an


overview of how ,the responsibili-
ties of teachers have changed over
history. He stressed that now a
teacher's role includes AIDS edu-
cation, gun safety, drug educa-
tion, etc., etc.-in addition to
classroom wokk. Teachers have
an "awesome responsibility,"
Kelley said.
WJHG-TV NewsChannel 7
personality Neysa Troutt added to
the event as mistress of cere-
monies by not only guiding those
attending through the festivities,
but by bringing special music as a
tribute to teachers.
Her selection for the evening
instructed listeners to never
stop learning, never stop growing,
never stop seeking the brighter
star never stop trying, never
stop reaching, never stop doing
what you can do ... keep yourself
growing your whole life through. .

When It Rains, It Pours
When it comes to rain in the Panhandle lately, it seems to have been a feast or famine-drought or flood-
S"situation. Recent rains in the Southeast, produced by severe cold fronts passing through, have given some need-
ed relief to a very parched Mother Earth.
Emergency Management Director Larry Wells reported to Gulf County commissioners at their regular meet-
ing Tuesday that the downpours over the past weeks have caused area rivers to leave their banks temporarily.
ii ii "- -The initial rainfall effected a 20.2' peak in Blountstown last week and a peak level in Wewa late in the week, fol-
S. -lowed by a maximum level in Howard Creek over the weekend. Since that time, the river has fallen off to 16'.
S.Forecasters predict that as a result of the latest storm front crossing Florida, Alabama, and Georgia on
-. ; Monday, the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin water levels will accumulate and peak at 19' in
S- Blountstown today and in Gulf County at the end of the week. However, additional rain which was expected on
.'' ;.' Wednesday evening, or possibly today, could impact those readings.
'.' Wells said, "We're just going to have to watch the amount of rain that falls in the basin." Increases are not
-. .expected to reach an emergency situation.
S. Hopefully, with the spring and summer seasons fast approaching, the ever annoying effects of El Nino, La
S.. Nina, etc. are coming to an end-and we can finally return to normal weather patterns along the Gulf Coast.

HIV Testingh In




Our Schools???

Did you know that half of all new HIV infections are
thought to occur in young people? It is also estimated that two
American teenagers are infected with HIV every hour of every
day.
Gulf County is not exempt from this brush with reality.
There are currently HIV positive students in attendance in the
Gulf County school system.
The life or death questions here are how many and is the
infected persons) aware of his/her status. Needless to say,
those who are unaware of their status are by far a much
greater concern than those who know.
Our local school board representatives, principals, parent
advisory council, Gulf County Health Department. and Bay
BASIC testing facilities were courageous in their efforts to
bring free., voluntary (after approval by parent signature) HIV
testing to the local schools.
While it is understandable that parents should be very con-
cerned about the methodology of this process, the only fault of
organizers that I can see is maybe the HIV testing proposal
was a little ahead of its time.
Indeed, after talking with Gulf County Health Department
Director Doug Kent, being pro-active in prevention, awareness,
and .education about HIV is clearly aimed at preventing
tragedy. '
Tragedy is exactly what happens when young people make,
bad decisions and contract or spread STD's (sexually trans-
mitted diseases). Clearly one of the worst of those tragedies is
HIV,and ultimately full blown AIDS.
I'm far from an expert. in the field, but the facts are pretty
clear-AIDS kills!!!
Persons at high risk are those who are sexually active. The
old adage that when you sleep with a sexually active partner,
it's like sleeping with every partner that the person has had
over the last five to 10 years is frightfully true. Even scarier,
though, is to think that from that day forward a new pyramid
starts with each additional partner.
The Gulf County Health Department has been Very busy
trying to get Gulf County's name off the top billing as #1 in
teen pregnancy and an alarmingly high STI infections rate.
Guess what! The same sexual behavior that created these
problems places"biur teenagers at risk for HIV/AIDS-.--Cduple
these disturbing facts with the thought that it could take five
to 10. years for a person to naturally discover he/she is HIV-
positive. That's when full blown AIDS begins to show up..
One of the worst imaginable nightmares these young peo-
ple could experience would be to find themselves married and
expecting a child one day in the future only to discover a silent
killer has been hiding in their body all these years, and is now
destroying dreams. :
Gulf County Superintendent ,of Schools Jerry Kelley said,
"We are a mirror society-whatever is going on in the world is
going on in the schools, and we don't need to bury our,heads
in the sand."
01' Jerry's right. In fact, when we act like an ostrich, and
Stick our heads in the sand, we are not only blind, deaf, and
dumb; but we could also be accused of thinking with the high-
,est patr-f.of our anatomy left protruding in the air.
New drugs and treatment techniques make the early detec-
tion of the HIV virus \very' important. Hopefully. any issues pre-
venting voluntary testing can be worked out in conjunction
with education and greater awareness of the dangers of the
HIV virus.

in lact.
I was.. working in. Perry,,
Georgia and azalea-blooming time
came around.
This town went bonkers when
azalea season came around.
Everyone joins in their annual
"Azalea Festival"-men and
women alike, big shots, common
folks, everyone. .They all had their
entries to the "Festval." .
Even 'Henryn the printer"'
:where I worked, had an entry.
The former owner, the Hodges
family, had just sold the paper to
.Cooper Ethridge, who put in its
first Linotype machine and hired
me to operate it. Up until that
time, the paper .had its type
"hand-set" for its 100 years of


existence.
Henry Powell had done all the
hand-setting.
Henry was an upper middle-
aged bachelor who lived by him-
self in a small house behind the
New. Perry Hotel. He always wore:
a pair of blue serge pants.
SHe was crusty, to say the
least. ,

PERRY' BILLED ITSELF as
the "Azalea Capital of the South"
and wasn't bragging a bit. It was
a typical small southern town in
those days; but it was a beautiful
small southern town.
There were azaleas growing


' everywhere-huge azaleas. '
The center of these azalea
shows was the New Perry Hotell
They did it up brown, with tea
parties, open house observances'.
and vying for prizes.
; Perry was not only a beautiful
town, but it was an old town. witfiH
its strata .of society. Its people
'were the U.S. senators, the state
senators, and the lead peach pro'
ducers of'the state. Sam Nunnl.
who recently retired from the U.S.
Senate, was the son of a Perr'
family who had been there for
1.00 years.
They all joined in the azalea
festival, too.


just as concerned with and proud
of their azaleas, camellias, and
laponicas as the women were and
joined in the festival just as
heartily. .:
Like I say, everything else
came to a stand-still, when the
azaleas began to bloom.
The town didn't have much
else to get excited about in those'
days. Oh, they'd have a small
rumble of apprehension roll
through the town w%'hen somebody
would bring in the first cotton
blossom, but that Involved only
the person who had produced the
blossom. The first, ripe peaches
would cause, 'stir, and the first,
watermelons..;
But, nothing stirred things .
up like the first azalea blooms!

EVEN MACON, SOME 30


dance .01of azaleas. Even the
Methodist Church, which sat on a
hill on Vineville Ayenue and was
covered with ivy vines and had its'
grounds saturated with azaleas,
didn't create as much interest as
Perry's "Azalea Show."
Azaleas were everywhere: the
courthouse square, the funeral
home, every home and, of course,
the New Perry Hotel. .
Highway. 41 ran through the
middle of Perry and was the main
route from Chicago to South,
Florida, so the people of Perry
went after that tourist dollar with
their mighty displays of azaleas,
camellias, and japonicas.
If you weren't especially fond
of these three flowering shrubs,
or weren't on "talking" terms with
the different strains available,
you weren't exactly acceptable in


towns, Ias grown into a yLcu .Ly
now with the coming of the inter-
state.. Where there used to be
about 18 miles of farmland
between Perry and' Warner
Robins; there is now n6ne! The
two meet, at some point.
But I wonder if Perry has
maintained that small town
atmosphere? I wonder If it-is still
as interested in azalea, camellia
and japonica blooms. asAit once
was?, '
The .shrubs give there all at
springtime. Some pf them bloom
so profusely that they appear as
one huge bloom, rather than a
riot of separate blooms.
They have begun 'to put in
their appearance here, around
Port St. Joe. Have you noticed?

Mother,
May you always walk in sunshine,
and God's love around you flow,
for the happiness you gave us,
no one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
A part of us went with you,
The day God called you home..
A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried,
If love could only have saved you,
You never would have died.
We Miss You.
We Love You.

Federal Consumer Protection has confirmed the accuracy of the fuel savi

Device May Increase Gas Mil


BOSTON National Fuelsaver
Corp. of Boston has developed
alow cost automotive accessory
called the Platinum Gas Saver
which is guaranteed to increase
gas mileage by 22% while
meeting all emission standards.
With a simple connection to
a vacuum line, the Gas Saver
adds microscopic quantities of
platinum to the air-fuel mixture
entering the engine.
Platinum has the unique ability
to make non-burning fuel burnm.
With platinum in the flame zone,
you increase the percentage of
fuel burning in the engine from
68% of each gallon to 90% of
each gallon, a 22% increase.
Since unburnt fuel leaving an


engine is pollution, this 22% of
each gallon would normally bum
when it reaches the platinum of
the catalytic converter.
Unfortunately, the converter's
platinum bums this fuel in the
tail-pipe, .where the heat and
energy produced from burning
this fuel cannot be harnessed to
drive your. vehicle.
But when the Gas Saver adds
platinum to the air-fuel mixture,
22% more of each gallon
bums inside the engine so that
22% fewer gallons are required
to drive the same distance.
After studying this process for
five years, the government
concluded: "Independent testing
shows greater fuel savings with


ng described in this advertisement. Government Produced

eage By 22% Test Data
The government studied fuel saving
the Platinum Gas Saver than the test data on vehicles made by several
22% claimed by the developer." auto makers using the Gas Saver.
In addition to this government This is the data they produced from

and raising octane, making GasSaverGas Saver


premium fuel unnecessary for
most vehicles.
Joel Robinson, the developer,
commented: "We have sold
almost a half million Gas Savers.
To our surprise, as many people
buy the Gas Saver ;because it
extends engine life (by cleaning
out the abrasive carbon deposits)
as buy it to increase gas mileage
or raise octane."

Fat Tuesday, A
Great Success
At SunBridge
Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday was
celebrated at SunBridge Bay St.
Joseph in a big way. ,
A little taste of gumbo made
by the director of nurses. Joanne
NMurphy. was a taste to remember
sold right outside her office door.
This endeavor scooped up a quick
S28 to go toward the American
Cancer Society's Relay For Life
team, The Bay St. Joe Care
Bears." Murphy who is herself a
cancer survivor said,. "It was,
.gumbo made from the heart, and
besides, NMardi Gras time is a time
of fun and happiness, something
'we enjoy providing for .our resi-
dents daily."
No Mardi Gras is complete
without a king and queen and the
care center had two of each. On
station one they were, Eileen
Stevens as queen,, and Fredrick
Maynard as king. They led the
parade of wheel chairs and walk-
ers through. the facility decorated
with colorful balloons, masks,
streamers, and of course beads.
On the Sun Path Unit,
Marjorie Lee was crowned queen
and Benjamin Carona was
crowned king.
A decorating contest was con-
ducted to select the best nurses
station. It was a: hard decision
*because both stations were so
closely decorated, but thanks to
Sharon Tharpe at Port Side
Trading and Sharon Miller, R.N.,
.the nursing instructor from Gulf
Coast ,Community College, they
selected the Sun Path Unit.

while the Sharks dropped to 1-8
overall and 0-2 in the district.
"We were very fortunate to
pick up this win,". said
Wewahitchka head coach Thorn-
ton Davis. "It was even more cru-
cial from the standpoint that we
had dropped three in a row to Lib-
erty, Rutherford and Munroe. We
really needed this win for no other
reason than to try and remember
what it felt like to score more runs
than someone else on a given
day."
Brandon Jones (1-0) picked
up his first decision of the season,
allowing only one earned run on
six hits and two walks. Jones
struck out four batters in his six
innings. Jonathan Thomas struck
out one batter and gave up one hit
in his one inning of relief.
"The boys played very well
and still made few mistakes that
can be corrected, but for the most
part we were pleased with the
effort and determination for all
seven innings," added Davis. "I'm
just glad that we' got a chance to
rekindle that old winning feeling
we used to know. We needed this
one and the "big man" was kind
enough to let us have it."
Brandon also led Wewahitch-
ka at the plate, going two for four
with two singles and three RBI.
Byron Jones was also two for four
with' a double and an RBI, while
Philip Hall went one for one with
an RBI.-
James Daniels (1-3) took the
loss oni the mound for the Sharks,
allowing four runs on five walks
and four hits. Daniels struck out
eight batters in five innings. Adam
Hamm gave up four runs on three
walks and two hits in his ,two
innings of relief. -.
"Daniels did akn excellent job
agairist us, but evidently got tired
in the fifth and let a few get away
from him," said Coach Davis. "He
kept us in a corner for the major-
ity of the game. He'll be tough to
beat down the stretch."
The Sharks were led at the
plate by Matt Caswell, who went
two for two, and Mike Manley,
who was two for four with a dou-
ble. Jacob Tankersley and Adam
Hamm each added, a single for-
Port St. Joe (1-8).
"We had a scary moment in
the bottom of the Fifth Inning,
when Matt Caswell was hit in the
mouth with a fastball from Bran-
don. That is one of those things
that just grabs you and shakes
you, and reminds you just how
unimportant this game is. Thank
goodness he is okay, and seems to
be doing well. I got a cl'ance to
-talk' to him. the other day,'and
express my concerns and make
sure he was gonna be fine. He's a
good kid, a heck of a ball player,
and he's obviously pretty tough-
he'll come back and haunt us I'm
sure." concluded Davis.
The Gators will host the Bay

Students Enjoy Celebrity Readers


Port St. Joe Elementary
ledule a School enjoyed a little entertain-
ment on Friday, March 2nd, as
Sheriff Frank McKeithen and
Little Property Appraiser Kesley Colbert
ead to the entire student body to
mmittee celebrate "Read Across America"
Senior (which is also Dr. Seuss's birth-
y Drive day). The gymnasium was packed
ursdav., with 550 students from Pre-K to
ET. The fifth grade.
Mr. Colbert read "Green Eggs
and Ham"' first as all the students
Listened intently. Next, Sheriff
McKeithen read 'The Cat in the
Hat" will a little acting involved.

Apalachicola Valley
Archaeology Day
Apalachicola \Valley Archae-
ology Day ill be held on Sunday,
March 25th. at 9:00 a.m. to 4:00
p.m.. CT. at W.T. Neal Civic
Center. located on Highway 69
North. in Blountstown.

-40 arid see their artifact and fossil
collections from the Apalachicola
and Chipola River valleys, or bring
your own artifacts for identifica-'
tion help. Watch local craftsmen
demonstrate ancient arts such as
bow and arrow construction.
atlatl's (spear throwers). stone

The sheriff had Mr. Colbert acting
out every scene from the book
with props and a little water from
his water. gun. As the Sheriff
would mention water, he would
pull out his water gun and spray
the students sitting close to him.
The' students enjoyed the two
celebrity readers as they partici-
pated in .the birthday of this inge-
nious and passionate pedagogue.
His books were designed to teach
children phonics and morals; to
help them to read and to excite


them about reading at the same
time. Thus, we need to emphasize
what teachers have known for
years: the amount of lap time chil-
dren receive outside the class-
room greatly impacts their
learning inside the classroom.
Port St. Joe Elementary
school extends its warmest appre-
ciation to the sheriff and the prop-
erty appraiser for their time and
attention to the student body and
hope they will go back again soon.


Shown above Sheriff Frank McKeitheni reads ihe"'(Cat In tihe Hat"
as Kesley Colbert illustrates the story to students at Port St. Joe
Elementary School during Dr. Seuss Day.

I SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER
Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia

He was one of those David and
Goliath type' politicians. He was:
either stoned or slinging it.
But the sin that once charmed'
him soon chained him.
One said to him, "Sign this
pledge never to drink again, and
keep it." "Ma'am," he cried, "I
can't keep anything. I need
someone to keep me."
Then he met Jesus, and
prayed, "Lord, .save me, or' I
perish; and keep me." The Lord
did. ,He went from sighing to
singing, from grief to glory, from
being a victim to sin to being a'
victor over sin.
Wouldn't you like to trust our
wonderful Lord and Savior?

The Faithful Four
In the book of Mark. Chapter 2
There is a good story
of what faith can do.
The faithful four
had a paralyzed friend,
who wanted to see Jesus
but couldn't get in.
This faithful four Just wouldn't quit.
they took their friend to the roof
and let' him down through it.
Through the faith of this man
and his faithful friends, "
He was not only healed,
but saved from is sins.
Do you have four friends.
that would do this for you?
Do you have four friends, that you
would do this for too?
If your answer Is yes.
you should truly feel blessed.
We should, witness each day through
word and deed.
; We can't save a soul, but we can
plant the seed.

Gulf County's Graduates


Have High Aspirations


High School

by Dr. Bill Truby


In the book The 7 Habits of
Highly Effective Teens, we last
looked at the Personal Bank
Account. Before we can succeed
rin public, arenas, we have to win
the private battles within our-
selves. A look at what we put in to
our PBA's and what we withdraw
from them can indicate the level
S f our PBA.
PBA deposits include the fol-
lowing: keeping promises,to your-
self; doing small acts of kindness;
Being honest; renewing yourself.
and tapping into .your' talents.
:Teens who do these things have a
'healthy "personal bank account."
There are ways to decrease
-the value of your. PBA. These
:include breaking promises to
-yourself; keeping' to yourself:
:beating yourself up; being dishon-
test; wearing yourself out, and
neglecting your talents.
In the context of our school
'environment, everyday we see
students depositing and with-
.drawing from their PBA's.
Invariably, it is a matter ,of'choice
when these occur.' Good choices
are the result of thinking before
we act. ,
We heard from a reliable
source that our Mr. Long, boys'
basketball coach. was nominated
for Coach of the Year by the
Tallahassee Democrat. We know
that he is deserving and wish him
well in the balloting.
Relay for Life is under way
with a great deal of enthusiasm.
-The office staff and the students
are fielding teams for the April 20
and 21 .vent on our track. We are
selling ratlle tickets for a weekend
get away at PanamalCity Beach.
Tickets are S2 each.
The boys' baseball had an up
V and down week. The up was an
impressive win over Port St. Joe
last Friday. The final score was 8-
3. This week the team will play on
TMonday at home and then host
Lhe Wewa State Bank Classic on
Fnday and Saturday.
The girls' softball team con-
Sunued its winning ways last week.
This week the girls will be at home
on Tuesday and Friday and will be
on the road on Thursday.
The first-ever home meet is
scheduled for this Tuesday. the
13th of March. Last week the-
girls' arid boys' teams traveled to
Bay County and made impressive
showings. CompeLing against the
larger schools will pay dividends
as we approach state meets.
The weight lifting team has
three meets left including meets
at Bay High and Vernon.
Our students put forth a
great effort on the FCAT tests.
Their enthusiasm, attendance.
and natural abilities will generate
-some quality scores to be sure.
Eight and 10th graders cele-
brated their efforts on the FCAT
by going to see 'The Wizard of Oz"
in Panama City on Thursday and
Fnday of last week.,
The Renaissance Fair, an
'.integrated curriculum activity.

Cheerleading Tryouts at

Port St. Joe High School'

\Ve finally got around to some
well-earned recognition' for our.
fall athletes. The football prayers
and cheerleaders held their ban-

Hey. PSJ. How's it going? I've
been meaning to tell you all that-I
appreciate the fact that you take
the time to sit and read this. It"
means alot to me. Thanks!
To kick off this week. I ani
excited to announce that spring
:break is just around the-corner. I
am looking, forward to 'sunny
days, staying up late. and ghing
my alarm clock the week off. To
better things. there 'is early dis-
missal at 11:50 on 'Friday in
honor of spring break. All classes
will meet and there will be break,
however. no lunch will be served..
This week, I.decided that I
would notremind you that plan
ners, notebooks., ewelry; clothing
articles, and "such are making up
space in the lost-and-found in the
office.
Thursday. March 15th is the
end of the third nine-weeks and
that means that report cards.'witl
be coming out soon. In fact. they
will be issued Apnl 2nd. Good
luck! Gold cards will be issued on
April 6th.,. ,P
Congratulations, to Kelly,
Geoghagan for placing second in
the Regional-Spelling Bee. Kelly
represented Gulf County well:
Keep spelling, Kelly, we expect
you to take it all next year.
Wrapping up this week, I
regret to say that this is my last
article (sniffle, sniffle).,'It has been
a pleasure writing for you all. The
answer to last week's riddle is "9".
Just for old time's sake:, here's a
final riddle: What is right in front,
of you, you can't see it but you
know it's there, and it's ever
changing by your actions? The
future, of course! The future of
PSJMS News lies in the hands .of
Gavin Vickery. Have fun, Gavin.
Well, PSJ readers, I bid you good-
bye. .

Four-letter -words have
become a part of the everyday
vocabulary of many youngsters.
Sadly. parents and teachers no
longer need to ask. Where did
you hear that?" Movies. television.
and popular music spread crude
language like a virus. often helped
by unthinking adults and teen-
agers.
Children who use foul Ian-'
guage in school usually do so for'
a purpose. That purpose is often
to dely the rules, shock adults,. or
to impress or hurt other children.
If the vulganties are ignored. chil-
dren often move on to other, more
harmful acts such as open defi-
ance or physical violence. When
this occurs, teaching time is lost
to disciplining, other children feel
vulnerable, and everyone surfers.
Schools cannot undo ih'~A few,
short hours the impact of'',hat'
children hear and mimic dunng
the rest of the day. Parents and
Sa families must find -a way to help.
'Here are a few suggestions:
* Lay Down The Law-Set the
same rules at home that are
observed in school.
Muzzle Yourself-Listen to
yourself and make a conscious
effort to use acceptable lan-
guage.
Make House Rules-Make sure
that visiting relatives and
friends know and observe your
language rules.
Observe Parental Warnings-
Don't allow school-aged chil-
dre.n to watch programs
labeled with parental warnings
of offensive language.
* :Know Who Is Listening-Before
watching programs for adults,
make certain youngsters are
not within earshot.
..Teach an Alternative, Vocab-
ulary-Teach children more
acceptable terms such :as
"rats" or: bummer" that can be
substituted for unacceptable
expletives. '
Beware of Prejudice--acial.
ethriic,-and sexual slurs" often
sneak into children's vocabu-t
lary. It is important for them to
understand that these' words
express prejudice and hate and
are never acceptable.
Learn How to React-Children
often use profanity to get a
reaction from their peers or
adults. .They want. to shock
you. Don't give them the satis-
faction. Shake your head and
express your disappointment.
But make it clear, through
your words and actions that
foul language will not be toler-
ated.

Saint Patty's Day Ride for Am. Cancer Society


Lett to Editor
Dear Editor:
A major corner stone in pro-
moting this annual Birding and
Wildflower Festival (it also has a
large nature tourist draw in gen-
eral through out the year); is St.
Vincents Refuge Red Wolf Project.
I've just learned that it has
received a. major funding cut
notice andit may cause the pro-
ject not to be continued.
This has been a very success-
ful project, with low impact to the
area. It also fosters recovery of an
endangered species and at the
same time provides positive eco-.
nomical impact .to the area. It
seems we as a community should
support this project and protest
any fund' cutting.

Lett To Editor,
The following letter was for-
warded to. The. Star. It v.was origi-
. nally addressed to the Honorable
Mayor and Members of the City
Commission. It reads as follows.
Dear Sirs,
We are writing this letter in
response to the discussion at a
recent City Commission meeting
relating to the. old Port Theater. It
is our understanding that there
were some complaints or critical
comments relating to the improve-
ments (or lack thereof) by the cur-
rent owners and the city was
encouraged to deliver a letter to
the owners indicating their dias-
pleasure at the perceived lack of.
progress in providing additional
improvements to this old struc-,
ture. .
Frankly, we find it quite diffi-'
cult to understand anyone's nar-
row view that would include ,
dissatisfaction with the rate of,'
progress ,for these ongoing- and
expensive improvements. We
believe the owners, Wade and
Paula Clark, have done a superb
job in the ongoing restoration, of
this historic landmark. From our
vantage point across the street
(301 Reid Avenue) we have
observed for the past three year's
that these hardworking owners
seem to be constantly, improving.
this property that was abandoned
for so many years. And, we are
most pleased that this former eye-
sore is now a functioning and
attractive place of business that is
back on the tax rolls!
We would suggest that you
direct your attention to the sev-
eral other structures on Reid
Avenue that appear to be aban-
doned or seriously neglected.
Also, since we are on the subject


of Reid Avenue, we would like to
compliment the city on its signifi-
cant efforts to beautify this down-
town street. Unfortunately, with
all the substantial improvements,
the planting spaces at many of the
corners remain neglected. with
either no flowenng plants or with
weeds only. NMay we offer to main-
-tain our corner if the city would
:find it convenient to finish the job

Do You Know If You're At Risk For Kidney Disease?

Millions of Americans May be at Risk for Kidney Disease; Simple Blood Tests Can Detect Your Risk


What you don't know can't
hurt, right?, Wrong, says the
'National Kidney Foundation of
'Florida. There are times when
ignorance can cost you your
health. In fact, four percent of the
'entire U.S. population is currently
;at risk for kidney disease, .and
-most people don't even know that
they are in any danger. A recent'
national survey reported that 11
million Americans have an ele-
S vated blood level of a waste prod-


uct called creatinine. Healthy
kidneys remove creatinine a waste
product from the normal activity
of your muscles but when kidney
function slows down, the level of
creatinine inthe blood goes up.
During March, National
Kidney Month, the foundation
wants to make the public aware
that a small elevation in creati-
nine may be an early sign of kid-
ney disease, occurring at a stage
when treatments can help to pre-

vent kidney disease from advanc-
ing to a more serious .problem.
When kidney disease progresses
to the stage where 85 to 90 per-
-cent of function is lost; dialysis
treatment or a kidney transplant
is needed to sustain life.
"Unfortunately, kidney' disi-
ease may be silent for many
years," says William W. Anderson,,
M.D., Chairman of the National
Kidney Foundation of Florida's
Medical Advisory Board. "Many
people may not be aware that they
are losing kidney function until
their disease :reaches an advanced
stage. For this reason, it is impor-
tant to make sure your doctor
includes tests of your kidney
function, such as your creatinine
level, in your regular physical
examination," Anderson contin-
ues.
Other important tests of kid-
ney function that should be part
of your physical checkup are the
blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test
and a test for protein in the urine.
Urea nitrogen is another waste
product that builds up in your
blood when your kidneys are not
functioning properly. Too much
protein in your urine is another
sign of decreasing kidney func-
tion. Protein is normally retained
in the blood, but when the kid-
ney's filtenng units are damaged,'
large amounts of protein can leak
into the urine.
"Early detection is the key to
preventing, kidney disease from
progressing, to an advanced
stage," says Anderson. In the
early stages of kidney disease,


treatments such as diet and med-
ications can help to slow the loss
of kidney function.
Diabetes is the leading cause
of chronic kidney disease in the
U.S., followed by high blood pres-
sure. Close to 70 million
Americans have these diseases.
To help prevent chronic kidney
disease and kidney failure and
other complications, anyone who
has diabetes or high blood pres-
sure should visit his or her doctor
regularly and carefully follow th
prescribed treatment to control
blood sugar and blood pressure.
It's important for all
Americans to know. the following
signs and symptoms, of chronic
kidney disease:
blood and/or protein in the
urine;
high blood pressure;
a creatinine blood test greater
than 1.2 for women and 1.4 for
men;
burning or 'difficulty during
urination;
more frequenturination, par-.
ticularly at night;
puffiness around the eyes,,
swelling of the hands and feet,
especially in children; ''
See your doctor if you notice
any of these. However, remember
that you may have kidney disease
without any symptoms. The
'National Kidney Foundation, of
Florida urges you to learn more
about your kidneys and to get reg-
ular checkups that include tests
for blood pressure, blood sugar,
urine protein and *kidney func-
tion. I
