Gulf Grows 16% In Decade



Over Half (1,059) Of That Growth Is In Prison Population


Over the past four or five
years, Gulf County has probably
lost somewhere in the neighbor-
hood of 1,500 jobs. The closure of
the mill by far was the biggest loss
of those jobs.
With that in mind, folks have
been anxiously awaiting the 2000


Census figures to see how all of ,
these changes have impacted Gulf
County's population.
Those figures are now, in and,
the effects of Gulf Correctional
Institute on the Gulf County has,
proven to reach beyond just the
creation of much needed jobs.


As it turns out, prison popu-
lation is counted in the census
tabulation and, according to the
data, 1,059 inmates have made a
! substantial contribution to Gulfs'
population increase over the past
year.
The 2000 Census figures
reflect that Gulf County's popula-


1990

District 2 ...... 2,088.32

District 3 ...... 2.266.00
District 4 ...... 2,260.00


District .. .... .2,449.00


TOTALS ...... 11,504.00

Lion has increased from I 1,504 in
1990 to 13,332. This is a differ-
ence of 1,828 people, or an
increase of 16% in population.
Those numbers far exceed antici-
pated figures, but when the
prison population increase is sep-
arated from the census count,
just over 9% of the 16% is inmate
population at the GCI complex.
Just over 250 inmates are
also included at the Gull Forestry
Work Canip site, but those num-
bers were in place when the 1990
Census was taken.
As' expected, the area hardest
hit by the economic turmoil was
the City of Port St. Joe. In fact,

the area included in District 4 of
the county (this includes the pop-
ulace between Tenth Street and
the Gulf County Canal) had an
overall loss of 409 residents over
the 10-year ('90 to '00) census
period. Every other county district
showed considerable growth in
population.
District 2 by far had the
greatest increase With 1,519.21
new residents-i ,059 of which
are the irpmates at GCI. But, even
without the prison population,
District 2, with 460 new resi-
dents, grew more than any other
district in the county.

"The city has several key
issues to address on the horizon
and I hope the citizens of this
community will continue to
entrust me as we seek to address
the questions," Raffield said.
Dealing with the impact of the
closure of the mill, lost tax rev-
enues, and job losses will contin-
ue to be a top priority. But, he
also stressed his compassion for
the children and elderly of the

"Mr Pig" Visits Construction Site


Mr. Pig dropped by Port St.
Joe last Friday to pay a visit and
check out the construction pro-
gram at Port City Shopping
Center.

Owner George Duren was on
hand to show Mr. Pig around the
32,000 square foot Piggly Wiggly
supermarket and additional small
shops under construction.


Duren said current plans are
for the supermarket to move into
its new building in late May. The
small shops should be ready for
occupancy in August, if the con-
struction project remains on
schedule.
A total of eight smaller shops,
ranging in size from 750 to 3,000
square foot will be located adja-
cent to the Piggly Wiggly shopping


center.


Favorable negotiations with a
major fast food restaurant are
also underway. Duren said he
hopes to have a commitment in
hand soon for them to construct a
restaurant on the 27,780 square.

He Said It Better


Than I Did... By Far

Betty Mims dropped by an e-mail that was given to her by Alice
Thomas last week that said what I was trying to say in last week's.edi-
torial much better than I could.
The message comesfrom Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a
victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado. He
was invited to address our national leaders during a special session of
Congress.
They were probably not prepared for what Darrell Scott had to tell
them. but the message runs true and penetrates to the heart. Below is
a portion of that transcript .
Since the dawn of creation there has been both good and evil in the
hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness of the
seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter. Rachel Joy Scott,
and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other 11 children who died
must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.
The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel
out in the field. The villain was not the club he used. Neither was it the
NCA. the National Club Association. The true killer was Cainm, and the rea-
son for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart. In the days that
followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers
began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA.
[ am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter. I do not even own
a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA-because I don't
believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do
not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything
to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent.
I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy-it
was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real
blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much o( the blame
lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a poem
just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best. This was written way
before I knew I would be speaking here today.
Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage.
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms.
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question. Why?
You regulate restrictive laws.
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!
Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, soul,
and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of.our malIrkgp,
we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and reek
havoc. Spiritual presence were present within our educational systems
for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as the-
ological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as
a nation?
We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to
hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's
tragedy occurs-politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the
NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrnctive laws that contribute
to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more
restrictive laws.
Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No
amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this
type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts. Political pos-
turing and restrictive legislation are not the answers.
The young people of our nation hold the key. There is a spiritual
awakening taking place that will not be squelched! We do not need more
religion. We do not need more gaudy television evangelists spewing out
verbal religious garbage. We do not need more rrullion dollar church build-
ings built while people with basic needs are being ignored. We do need a
change of heart and a humble acknowledgment that this nation was
founded on the principle of simple trust in God!
As my son. Craig. lay under the table in the school library and saw
his two friends murdered before his very eyes-he did not hesitate to pray
in school. I delf any law or politician to deny him that right!

Major League Baseball has
kicked off another season.'
Somehow that game, with player
agents, investment brokers, corpo-
rate meetings, Internet updated
scores and fifty-five dollars-a-seat
tickets has lost some of its luster
for me.
And a lot of the fun.
With all due respect to Mark

McGwire. David Paschall hit the
longest home run I ever saw. I was
a sophomore in college and %we
were playing David Lipscomb
University in Nashville. It landed
in the parking lot in front of the
Administration Building and rolled
all the way past the Belmont Street
,"fire station.
"Colbert, did you see that
blast!" Paschall was still jumping
up and down in the dugout two
,outs later. "Wasn't that the longest
ball you've ever seen hit!!!"
Yes it was. Without a doubt!
I have cherished that home
run, the dance in the dugout and,
the uncontrollable exuberance of a


teammate and friend for thirty-
four years. What a moment! For
both of us-and I didn't even hit
the danged thing!
I feel sorry for those big league
guys who have to worry about the
money!
We'd start our college season
in February. The school was locat-
ed high up on the Cumberland
Plateau that runs through middle
Tennessee. Folks, it's cold in the
mountains in February! Our right,

I've seen the water cooler

You had to love it!
One particularly "raw" day,
with the wind chill factor hovering'-'
around eight degrees; we comman-

used as a trash container and
pulled it! into the dugout. We, filled
it with hot dog wrappers, old news-
papers, broken bats, planks from
the storage room-and. set the
whole mess on fire.
We were a little uneasy as tod
how Coach Majors might take us
"giving in" to the elements like
this. You know coaches! He
elbowed "Bob-Bob" White and
Chap "Squatty Body", Wasson out
of his way as he backed up to the
now glowing drum. He could be a'
little dictatorial at times and he
was tough as whit leather-but he
wasn't stupid!
You talk about -getting the .

There was heat in the dugout!
I foolishly played :baseball one
time for money. The manager, who
acted like his career hungon every,
pitch, yelled at us constantly if we.
fell one run behind. His limited -
vocabulary consisted mostly of'
spurring us on by shouting, "What
does it take to fire you guys up?
Get the lead out! Someone has got
to start a fire in this dugout!!!"
You don't know the temptation

Passing the Time of Day With Quality Activity Is A Real Challenge


FOR THE PAST year, I have
watched more than my share of
television and found it mostly
boring. Television has turned
into a non-stop commercial.
There's at least no shortage of
time to take a bathroom break.
Even the channels out in the
hinterland are chock full of com-
mercials. A half-hour news pro-
gram is now 20 minutes of adver-
tising and 10 minutes of station
promos and news.
The most frequent and most
boring commercials are the ones
hawking music discs. The other
day I counted seven different
music commercials in 15 min--
utes; trying to sell everything
from rock to country music. My
most forgettable music advertise-
ment is entitled, "That's What I
Call Music." Needless to say that
is not what I call music.
Television these days is defi-
nitely something you don't want
to watch, even to pass the time of
day!


I'VE SORT OF sworn off,
watching the boob tube lately,
because of the wasteland of mis-
information and lack of enter-
tainment to be found there. I've
resumed reading. I've read two
John Grisham books in the last
10 days.
They're the thick ones!
But, back to television.'
It seems to me that someone
at the station would have told
weatherman Jason .Kelley not to
talk so fast, quit running his
words together, and enunciate
more distinctly, rather than let-
ting his sentences fade away.
I have problems understand-

There are some folks who
don't wish to watch soap operas
all morning long. There are actu-
ally those of us who don't care
for soap operas at all, so, it
appears as if 'television would
provide a viable .alternative; they
*are making enough money
through their wall-to-wall com-
mercials.
Thanks, anyway, for 'driving
me back to books.
But, even books don't pro-
vide enough entertainment to
pass the time of every day.
There's the newspaper every
morning, "Newsweek" after the
mail runs on Tuesdays; "National
Geographic" for two or three days
around the first of the month
and novels the rest of the, time;
except for Thursdays, when I
come to the newspaper and write
this stuff.

I DON'T KNOW how it is
now, but a few years ago when I
was active every day with the


newspaper, a certain 'percentage
of the paper had to.be dedicated
to news and a lesser percentage
to advertising. The advertising
was separated from the news
matter to make both easily iden-
tifiable. -
The advertising paid for the
newspaper and was welcome; but
it didn't predominate as it does
now with television.
If a newspaper exceeded its
quota of advertising, .it stood a
good chance or losing its second
class mail permit; a necessary
item for distribution of the news-
paper.
I suspect such is still the
case.
At any rate, I can still pick
up -a newspaper and be confident
of the fact that there'll still be
enough "news" in it to make it
worth reading.

I GUESS I WILL have to stick
with reading, if I hope to pass the
time with any amount of plea-

0 Tobacco Use At PSJ Ball Parks


Port St. Joe city commission-
ers voted to restrict/prohibit the
use of tobacco products in all city
park when in use by youth orga-
nizations or league activity.
Those restrictions are two-
fold in that all parks fall under
the restriction of the new city
ordinance when, in use by orga-
nized youth groups. But, at the
10th Street park--used almost
exclusively for youth sports activ-
ity-tobacco use is prohibited at
all times in those youth sporting
areas.
The new ordinance was sug-
gested several weeks ago when
members of the local S.W.A.T.
(Students Woiiking Against
Tobacco) team approached the
board. During their presentation
to the board, they outlined many
statistics concerning the harm of
second hand smoke.
Gulf County Health Director
Doug Kent presented the board


members a S.W.A.T. fishing hat
after the board had passed the

Fire Station Repair Bids
Bids were received to repair
wind damage done several
months ago to the block wall of
the Port St. Joe Fire Department
building.
CSI Concrete Service, Inc.
(Quincy) was -the low bidder at
$84,170 and Garry Gaddis
(Mexico Beach) was a very close

the board turn the bids over to


the project architect to review and
asked him to evaluate the slope of
the roofline that is being planned.

Preble-Rish, Inc. engineer Bill

Kennedy told the board that

P Florida Garden

Extension Notes

by
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service




Cultural Disease Control


The usual response to the
"discovery of a disease on prized
landscape plants is to grab a
spray can and attack. Sometimes
sprays do offer the only effect
means of ridding your ornamen-
tals of certain ailments.
Fortunately, using spray is
not the, only way to keep your
plants healthy and disease free.
. There are several simple, common
sense gardening practices you
S can follow, to insure the, good
health of ornamentals. My infor-
mation was provided by Exten-
sion Urban Horticulture Special-
ist Dr. Robert Black from the Uni-
versity of Florida.
First of all, if you want
healthy plants. buy healthy, dis-
ease resistant varieties. Your
nurseryman can recommend
plant specie's which are known to
have few- if any disease problems.
Use native plants whenever possi-.
ble. These plants are adapted to
Florida conditions, and will be
much hardier than imported
plants. They'll require much less
mnaintenancr.
Anotl er,. o_,,n-.ideration is
here you put plants in your-
landscape. Know which require
sunny location and which need
shaded sites, and plant them in
suitable spots. Avoid extremes of
very wet or very dry soils, unless
you have a plant that's particular-
' '. ly well-suited to either of these
conditions.
If your annuals or perennials
develop a disease, you might try
moving plants to a new spot. This
practice is similar to crop rota-
tion, commonly used by farmers.
It gives plants a chance to grow in
relatively disease free soil and the
disease in the original bed will
probably die out.
You also should give your,
plants plenty of room to grow: If
the beds appear to be crowded,
thin them out. Thinning the
plants permits good air circula-


tion, and allows sunlight to reach
the lower leaves. This helps pre-
vent the growth of disease, such
as mildew and botrytis blight.
Many diseases get started
because plants are underfed or in
a drought condition., Overfeeding
and overwatering also cause
problems. To guard against plant
disease attack, you should avoid
extremes, by maintaining bal-
anced fertilization and irrigation
programs. ,t
In the event a plant, or part of
.one, does develop a disease,
remove and burn the infected por-
tion right away. This is important
because if you leave the diseased
plant untreated, the malady will
grow and possibly endanger other
plants. So, always collect and dis-
pose of diseased branches,
shoots, and even the entire plant,
before a disease has a chance to
spread
Another help in controlling
plant diseases is planting at the
right time of year. Each plant'has
an optimum planting time. Check
with your garden center operator
for. such seasonal information on
the plants you -want to grg ,
Good common sense garden-
ing practices may offer the great-
est disease protection you can
give your plants. Choose species
that are suited to your area. Grow
disease resistant varieties when-
ever possible. Give them proper
care, including the right amounts
of water and fertilizer. Never let a
diseased plant go untreated. If
your best cultural efforts fail, you
may have to use pesticides as a
last resort.

H20 Project Held at VAC
`Join the Visual ArtsCenter as
they dive into their new exhibit,
H20 Project, March 24-May 5.
Focusing on Florida's most abun-
dant resource, the H20 Project

United States.
The opening reception for this
exceptional exhibit is March 23,
from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and
will feature Jack Mashburn dis-
cussing the importance of water
conservation.


The Visual Arts Center is

Gulf/Franklin

Senior Day 2001
On Friday, March 30th, Gulf
Coast Community, College's
Gulf/Franklin Center hosted
Senior Day 2001. This is a day
designed for Gulf and Franklin
counties' seniors to learn about
the post secondary opportunities
available to them. ,
The day consisted of motiva-
tional speakers, college informa- ,
tion, and fun activities. Lunch
was catered by Paul Gant.
Dr. Fredrick Humphries,
president of Florida A & M
University, was the keynote
speaker and addressed the stu-
dents on the need for computer,
science, and engineering degrees.
He explained to the students that
these would be the top paying jobs
in their future. If American stu-
dents get the education necessary
to fill those needs, industries
would not look for employees from
other countries.

Woullard Sets State

Discus Record Saturday


This past Thursday and Fri-
day the Port St. Joe boys track
team traveled to Gainesville to
compete in the Florida Relays.
Despite the fact that the meet was
eventually rained out, the Sharks
had some fine performances
before the weather made contin-
ued competition impossible. High-
lighting the meet for the track-
sters was, Travis Woullard's state
leading and Florida Relays' record
discus throw, and Kyron Bailey
winning the high jump. Travis is
currently ranked #1 in the state in
all classes in the discus, and #3 in
the shot put.
Other scorers for the team
were Travis, second in the shot
put; Tremaine Lewis, sixth in the
discus and ninth in the shot put;
Seneca Chambers, seventh in the
100 meters and eighth in the long
jump; and the 4x200 meter relay*
team of Seneca, John Watkins,
Jerrell Showers and Reggie Quinn


who finished fifth.
This Saturday the team will
travel to Tallahassee to compete
in the Capital City Classic against
more than 50 teams.
"We have already competed in
three USTA sanctioned meets
with hundreds of schools, and we,
have this meet and the 'Nova Care
Meet next week to fine .tune our-
selves for the district. regional
and state competitionss" said
Coach Vernon Eppinette.
S "With the state champi-
onships being held in Miami this
year, we've been taking some'
longer trips to help prepare us for
the state finals. Right now'it l6oks:
like it will be a battle between us,
Upperroom Christian and Maclay
for the state championships. How
hard we work, and if we can learn
to focus better will determine if we
can bring home our seventh state
championship in eight years,"
concluded Eppinette.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2001 PAGE 11


PSJ "Odyssey of the Mind" Teams Headed for State


All three Port St. Joe "Odyssey
of the Mind" teams took first place
gold medals in this past
Saturday's regional competition
which was held in Chipley. The
Capital Regional Tournament
included 16 teams from the coast,
north to Chipley, and east to
Tallahassee. The teams also qual-
ified for the state competition
which will be held in Orlando at
the end of April. All of the teams
are sponsored by the schools and
represent the different age levels
found in elementary, middle, and
high school.
The Odyssey of the Mind pro-
gram promotes creative thinking
by challenging teams to solve
divergent problems, some with
more than one solution.
Through working together in
teams, participants learn cooper-
ation, the appreciation and
understanding of others, and that
a group is a more powerful think-
ing force than an individual. They
develop a sense of self-respect and
respect for others through
preparatory activities such as
brainstorming and role playing.
In an Odyssey of the Mind
1 competition, teams are awarded,
scores in three different areas: the
long-term problem solution, the
style component of the long-term


solution, and how well they solve
the spontaneous problem given
on the day of competition. The
purpose of the Odyssey of the
Mind program is to give students
a unique learning experience that
promises to be challenging and
fun!
Port St. Joe Elementary was
represented by Travis Bennett,
Carson Howse, Douglas May,
Ashton Norris. Krista Parker,
Alexa Protsman, and Lenora
Weimorts. These teammates chose
the problem "Ody-See-ing
Sounds." The team had to develop
a humorous performance that
included 10 different sound
effects performed "live" for the
audience, Six of the sound effects
were produced by two team-cre-
ated devices. The eight minute
production was entirely team pro-
duced. with coaches Charlotte
Willis and Lynn Bennett serving
only as supervisors to keep things
on track and.within limits.
The middle school team chose
the problem Idiom Inspiration.
This team is made up of Daniel
Bennett, Tom Boone, Amy
Brockman, Angelica Driesbach,
Nicole Ford, Elizabeth Kilbourn,h
and Henry Kirby.
They also wrote a humorous


play. They had to choose four
idioms to include in their story,
one of which was team created
and whose origin was explained
within the play.
They chose a Chinese theme
and setting, complete with
dragon. Coaches Gloria Gant and
Nancy Brockman were responsi-
ble to guide this crew along their
journey. This group was also rec-
ognized with the OMer's award
which is awarded to teams which
demonstrate outstanding sports-
manship. They had a couple .of,
unexpected challenges presented
to them on competition day and
the judges were impressed by
their ability to. "go on with the
show."
Wild, Winged, Wonders was
the problem chosen by Port St.
Joe High School team members.
This team consists of seven young
ladies: April Cloud, Lisa Curry,
Jessica Ford, Stephanie Gibson,
McClain Howse, Becky Needham,
and Hilary Patterson. Diane
McKeithen serves as their coach.
Three birds, one of a living
species, one that is team-created.
and one that is from classic liter-
ature form the basis for this play.
The performance includes three
original works of art depicting the
birds and a commemorative


memento designed by the team in
honor of the occasion.
Lisa Curry was also presented
with the Ranatra Fusca Creativity
Award. This award represents the

"For entomological evidence

"Specifically, we look for one of
five key fly maggots that can tell

hairy maggot blow fly, can detect

Butler stated, referring to serial

In the Bundy case, the
absence of maggots indicated the
murder took place in Florida dur-
ing a two-week cold snap, thereby
giving police a narrow window of
time to focus on.
Of the more than 40 murder
cases Butler has worked on, his
first job came during a triple-
homicide trial in Gainesville in the
mid- 1970s. He- used forensic
entomology to establish that all
three victims had been killed at

by Dr. Bill Truby '.,


It's report card time! Hopefully
yo have received your reports and
th accompanying newsletters. If not,
please contact us Immediately.
The purpose of these news releas-

sible about many subjects, not all of
which are positive. And that Is the
case with the following topic. The Navy
has informed us that our satellite
branch of ROTC will be terminated as
of Jine 30th. '
The reason for this decision Is
I based on finances--or lack of them.
You are encouraged to write letters on
our behalf to conunue this program.
Perhaps our voices formed as one
might make a difference. Write them
c/o Dr. Truby who will forward them
to.Mr. Kelley and the school board. An
exposure to the military may help our
young people in one of life's most
pressing dilemmas: a career choice.
Call the office for more details br 'to-
express your concerns .
This Thursday, the 5th, we will be,
having our annual Spring Fling spon-
sored by the health department. We

Our spring sports are running
full tilt. With games practically every-
day: it is hard to give an update that
does the teams justice. However. soft-
ball. baseball, and track are doing
well Recently the boys' track team
beat lour other schools to win the Bay
High Invitatonal while the girls fin-
-ished second in their division. Last,
week the softball team beat St. Joe

Registrauon for next year's class-
es and courses will take place between
Apnl 23rd and 27th Students will
receive very important information on
this in the near future. Please be on
the lookout for it. Take some time to
"not onJi reneew classes for next year.
but discuss how those classes will
hest prepare him.'her for a career or
college,
As we always share at this time of
year. backing away from challenges In
high'school will not look good to col-
leges. A high GPA without upper level
classes is practically meaningless.
especially if SAT or ACT scores do not
:match the high GPA. And don't forget.,
to look at Florida High School, the
state s Internet courses!

high "Student of the Month," Brandi

international creative problem-

Its purpose is to foster the
development of creative thanking

skills among young people.
Under the guidance of a
coach, teams of five to seven stu-
dents pool their talents to find
innovative solutions to annual
long-term problems. Participants
compete in a variety of areas from
mechanical devices such as
spring-driven cars to giving their
own interpretation of classical lit-
erature.
Through participation in the
OM program students learn to
work with others as a, team. They
develop self-confidence by creat-
ing solutions, evaluating their
ideas, and making final decisions.

My Message to Women:


Stay Smoke-Free Forever


by: Christy Turlington
In my family, there are two
people who have quit smoking-
my Dad and me. For me it took
seven years. When I finally did
quit for good, I knew it was one of
the biggest accomplishments of
my life.
It was different for my father.

Massey Visits
Barcelona, Spain
Navy Petty Officer Second
Class, James P. Massey, II, son of
James P. Massey of Port St. Joe,
recently visited Barcelona, Spain
during a six-month deployment to
the Mediterranean Sea and
Arabian Gulf while assigned to the
guided missile destroyer USS
Mitscher, homeported in Norfolk,
Virginia.
While in Barcelona, the
S Mitscher crew had the opportu-
nity to observe the historical
architecture, visit the Barcelona
Zoo and the Maritime Museum
which houses Christopher
Columbus's ships, the Nina,
Pinta, and Santa Maria. They also
were able to 'enjoy the local cul-
ture and cuisine.
USS Mitscher is one of the
most powerful warships ever put
to sea. The 'computer-based
AEGIS weapons system is the
heart of the ship's war-fighting
S capability.. It centers around a
powerful 6adar that enables the
crew to detect, track and fire on
more than 100 targets at a time.

He stopped smoking in December
1996, just six months before he
died from lung cancer. He was
only 64. So much has happened
in our family since then that my
father would have enjoyed. There
have been many things I wanted
to tell him, many questions I
wanted to ask him. Now there's a
great deal that he and I will never
share.
It's comforting to know that
when you're gone, you live on in
the hearts of those who loved you.
But it's infuriating to realize that
his and so many other premature
deaths were completely pre-
ventablel Tobacco use remains
the leading preventable cause of
death in the United States, killing
more than 430,000 Americans
each year-more than all who die
from AIDS, alcohol, drug abuse,
car crashes, murders, and sui-
cides-combinedl
For women, particularly
young women and the children
they care for, the health conse-
quences of smoking grow. increas-
ingly grave. We may have come a
long way in some ways, but when
it comes to tobacco, women have
taken many steps back:
* The number one cause of can-
cer deaths in women is lung
cancer. The rate of lung cancer
in women has increased by 600
percent in the last 50 years
Women who smoke have more
miscarriages, are more likely to
be infertile, and enter
menopause earlier than non-
smokers.
Mothers who smoke have
smaller and sicker babies,
more stillbirths, and. more
neonatal deaths than mothers
who do not smoke.
Secondhand smoke. causes
35,000 to 62,000 deaths a year
from heart disease in NON-
smokers! Second-hand smoke
also causes asthma, lung infec-
tions, and even sudden infant
death syndrome (SIDS).
More than five million children
living today will die prema-
turely because of a decision
they have made as adolescents
-the decision to smoke ciga-
rettes.
We were warned long ago that
when women started to smoke
like men, they'would die like-men.
The reality Is even worse. Not only
do, women .smokers suffer like
men smokers from the increased
risk of cancer, heart disease and
lung disease, but they also experi-
ence the health problems unique
to menstrual and reproductive
functions. Why, after all that we
know, has this happened? There
are two important reasons.
The first is sheer marketing
power. Women started smoking in
great numbers when tobacco
companies targeted them to do so.
"Reach for a Lucky instead of a
sweet" remains one of the most
successful advertising themes of
all times because it made women
believe that if they smoked, they
would be slim and beautiful.

Baby" morphed into the 1990's as
"It's a woman thing," and recently
into the most cynical multi-ethnic
advertising campaign "Find your
voice."
The commercial coupling of
smoking with women's freedom,
emancipation, and empowerment
camouflages the second reason
why so many women are suffering
from tobacco use-the terrible
reality of tobacco addiction.
Like. the large majority of
smokers, I was just a kid when I
started smoking-only 13. And,
like almost every smoker I've ever
talked to, I started out believing
that I wouldn't get hooked. But
addiction is a fact-one that the
tobacco companies have long
known and used to their advan-
tage.
There is good news. Quitting
is hard, but everyone can quit.
More than 50 million Americans
have! That's more than those who
still smoke. And, according to the
new Surgeon General's Report on
Women and Smoking, quitting
smoking begins immediately to
reduce the risk of dying prema-
turely, no matter when that step
is taken. As Dr. Virginia Ernster,
Senior Scientific Editor of the
report emphasizes, it's never too
late to quit smoking.
.. Now I know that the best con-
tribution I, can make is to help
girls and women to become and to
stay smoke-free. That's why I'm in
Washington, D.C. this week help-
ing Secretary of Health and
Human Services Tommy
Thompson and U.S. Surgeon


Happy Birthday, Arthur!
The K-2, K-3, and K-4 classes of Faith Christian School celebrated the birthday of well known
children's storybook character and PBS television series, "Arthur," written and illustrated by Marc
Brown. The children have been participating in the Pre-School Book It Program encouraging chil-
dren and parents to spend time reading together. Birthday cake and goody bags were enjoyed by
all. As a special treat, Gabriel Hendry's dad, John, read "Happy Birthday, Arthur" to them.
