Redistricting Workshop


Set for Friday, April 20t


Gulf County commissioners
will hold a public workshop to
discuss redistricting Friday alter-
'noon at 5:00 ETin the board
meeting room, located in the
Robert M. Moore Administration
building behind the courthouse.,
During last week's board
meeting, commissioners voted to
accept a tentative plan presented
by Comm. Billy Traylor and
Intended as a starting point for
discussions. Comm. Jerry Barnes
and board chairman Nathan
Peters. Jr. objected to the motion
which passed by a 3-2-vote mar-
gin.
Most of the major changes in
district lines proposed by Traylor
l were focused on changes to the
District 4 and District 5 area


which are the two districts
sented by Peters and Ba
respectively.
Commissioners have d
up several different scene
since the new census figures
released several days
Traylor's scenarios was I
duced as liB and Peters

same meeting.
Several residents in

criteria that complicates these ng-
ures is that Gulf is a very small
county, just over 13.000. It does-
n't:take many deaths to push the
projected figure high among state
averages. Also during 1998 the
county led the state In colo-rectal
deaths at seven deaths or 48.1
deaths projected at 100,000 peo-
ple.
These figures bounced
around during the 1996, 1997,
and 1998 statistical period but
the bottom line remained basical-
ly the same-Gulf County consis-
tently has had a higher cancer
rate. .


Dnum Cancer is not the only con-
ure of cern though. Kent said the coun-
eople. ty also ranks high in diabetes
of the- (especially among youth), heart
disease, strokes, cardiovascular
disease, liver disease, and asth-
S ma.
I During a short presentation
to the Board of County
SCommissioners during the last
l meeting, Kent said he attributed
most of the elevated numbers to
repre- lifestyle and a higher than usual
Lrnes, average age factor in the county.
He stressed that diet alone
lrawn could be attributed to 35% of all
iarios cancer deaths as reported by
were research from the American
ago. Cancer Society. Hand-in-hand
Intro- with diet is exercise which is cred -
intro- ited with reducing the nsk factor
that for diseases.
Tobacco use is attributed to
atten- causing 30% of all cancer deaths,

t the the board. ,
plan Mech of this data is listed in
work -a--brochure- frofi the American
r said Institute for Cancer Research
shing entitled, "Everything Doesn't
d not Cause Cancer."
g the "Scientists believe that more
than 80% of all cancers are asso-
ciated with a few lifestyle factors
we can easily control-diet, smok-
ing, and exposure to the sun," the
brochure states.
Kent said his observations
indicate that this is likely the


cause in Gull County. But. he
;wants to be absolutely sure.

Let's Stay



Between The



Same Lines

I'm sure that this redistricting stuff is going to be a hot
topic for several weeks to come. As I begin to express my
thoughts on the subject, let me predicate them by saying I have
no predisposition as to where the lines need to be drawn and
am not on anyone's "side" for any plan that has been or will be
introduced.
The numbers are the numbers. It's quite clear where the
population lies in Gulf County, just as it is also pretty clear
where we will likely grow as a county over the next several
years.
County commissioners have also dealt with the prison
numbers (approximately 1,300 at GCI and Gulf Forestry) and
decided they would include those numbers in district tabula-
tions, just as they are'included in census numbers.
In my humble opinion, there are only two prerequisites that
need to be satisfied (beyond the obvious requirements of state
laws) when drawing new district lines.
First, they should, not be confusing to the citizens and vot-
ers of the county. Those lines should be established in a man-
ner that make logistic sense and blocks, areas, communities,
and rectangles should be used as much as possible. The fact is
... this is not always totally possible. The state protects citi-
zens from drastic manipulations by stating in their guidelines
that you can't gerrymander lines. It still remains true though
that you can meet the legal requirements of hnot gerrymander-
ing while still creating some confusing scenarios.
Secondly, Gulf County commissioners and the Gulf County
School Board need to have the same district lines.
I would hope that long before any lines are drawn in the
sand by either board as to what is acceptable and what is not
acceptable, both groups would have put their heads together
and worked out some common ground.
I read where one small area county established a redistrict-
ing committee that included representatives from both boards
as their starting place for addressing new district lines. I'm not
suggesting that needs to happen in Gulf County, but I do feel
it is very important the two boards have common districts.
Imagine going to the polls and trying to figure out which
line you need to stand in. "Let's see now, am I in the line with
the District One Commission/District Two School Board, or in
the District One Commissioni/District One School Board, or
maybe it's the District Two Commission/District Two School
board."
Folks in South Florida would never figure out this ballot!
Surely, some of this confusion could be helped by creative
precinct placement and a lot of education but why?
It just seems to me the simplest thing to do is establish dis-,
trict lines that are in the same location. All District One voters
should be in District One for both commission and school
board elections. All District Two should be District Two for
everybody in, District Two etc ., all, the way through and
including District Five *

The citizens of Gulf County deserve this continuity and the.
Board of Gulf County Commissioners, along' with the Gulf'
County School Board, should exhaust every effort to keep like
boundaries for each entity.

We'd lay on our backs and

It's Next to Impossible to Work In A Quiet Office!!f


I'M TRYING TO set type on a
strange computer, in 'a strange
place and it's proving, to be a
chore.
I'm .not accustomed to the
peace and quiet of a private office
to work in. If there aren't a- dozen
distractions during the day, I'm at
my wit's end. Somehow or other,
I'll struggle through and make it, I
hope.
So far, it's just me and the dog
here. The computer keyboard
doesn't even have the same touch.
I press a -key and nothing hap-
pens-so I press again, just a lit-
tle harder. This is no timr in life to
try and become accustomed to
new keyboards.
In the old place, I had tele-
phones ringing incessantly, cus-
tomers coming in, as well as visi-
tors. I could operate the computer
and all the while, conduct a con-
versation out of my good ear-that
is, I could listen with'my'good ,ear
and talk with my mouth..


I HAD MY OWN computer at
the other place. Here, I have to
share the use of one with ,Eric,
who sets the sports copy., ,
My own set-up, had the display
unit sitting right flush up against
the keyboard. This one is sitting
over to the side, out of my line of,
sight and beyond the vision of
both my eyes and my bi-focals.
It's, all fuzzy
It's all kind of eerie!
I'm wondering just how long
the carpet is going to stay clean;
just when' are they going to install
the water., cooler; I haven't looked
for, the bathroom, y.ei, but, I


assume it's around here some-
place and in operation.,
They pulled one over on me,
However. They didn't move the
n newspaper press! I'm right in the
Middle ,of wondering where they
will put it, if it is moved. That
newspape-r press getting moved is:
one reason I stayed away until the'
process was finished.
I can't pick up even one corner
of that heavy thing. I knew .I
wouldn't be of .any help for any-.
* thing except to give advice. I get
nervous when these heavy items
are being hoisted up and shifted
'about.


I REMEMBER THE last time
we moved a newspaper press. It
was when we installed the offset
press.
We had been. printing the
paper on a flatbed letterpress .and
it was a big old ungainly piece of'
cast iron and rubber rollers.
We didn't have any 'hopes of
selling it because it was obsolete.
So, we just hired a fellow to come
in and burst it up and take it out
in pieces. 'Thefellow contracted to
do the job, so he could get the
gears, shafts and the scrap iron.
He worked diligently for a week or
so, collecting 'the thousands of
nuts and bolts which held the
press together. He separated the
gear racks and cams all. in sepa-,
rate boxes. When he was finished,
he tossed it all in a:box and sold it
for scrap.
I didn't especially miss that ole
press, so it didn't bother me any
when the fellow made the equiva-
lent of cast iron hamburger out of


it, .

BUT, I DON'T KNOW whether
or not I'm going to like this new
set-up or not. It's all too quiet, too
clean, too removed from every-
thing.
I'm liable to go stir crazy
I'll-try out the new location for
anothernweek or two. If I still find
out that it gives me the heebie-jee-
bies, being so far removed from
anyone else, they'll have to set me
up at a computer at the old place
I know why they set me up in
a quiet office in the first place;
they thought it would give me an
atmosphere in which I could
think; or maybe it was to keep me
out of the way of work going on.
Anyhow, the creative juices
have all but ceased to flow.

I JUST HAD A visit from
McKayla, who came running and
screaming through here. She goes
to nursery school in the .mornings


and spends the- rest ..of the day,
keeping the production. men on
their toes.
MaKayla is the pet of everyone
in the office. She can do no wrong.
But if her little brother was here,
too, things would get into over-
drive in just a few minutes.
It's a pity that I'm so near the
end of this epistle, now. With the
noise and clatter from that little
four year. old in my ears, I'm near-.
ly. back to normal-normal being.
somewhere just this side of sanity.
Next week, the column should
go just a little easier and a little
easier the following week . .
until it gets back to normal and I
don't have to strain too hard.
I received a piele of mail this
week which should make next
week's effort go a little easier. It's
from a fellow retired newspaper
editor who had about as many
adventures as I, from what I can
tell.

Funding In Balance for


Courthouse Renovations


-1


by: Grace M. Ugalde,
Correspondent Capitol Bureau
The Florida House of.
Representatives wants to give Gulf
County $100,000 to replace the
windows in the courthouse. But
the Florida Senate hasn't bud-
geted any money for the job.
i Wednesday, (April 18), the
S joint Appropriations Committee
will begin to' negotiate the state
budget.
The House and Senate dis- i
agree on the funding, "but I will be
| there when the committee meets
to restate the case of funding."
S said Sen. Alfred "Al" Lawson, D-
Quincy.
Rep. Bev Kilmer, D-Quincy,
said, "the likelihood Gulf County
will receive funding for court-
house renovations is really good-
I support the project."
The courthouse is in need of
renovation, said Don Butler.
county administrator. "'This year.
the county will used the money to
replace the plate glass with tem-
pered glass."
County Commissioner
Nathan Peters said when it rains
and the wind blows hard, water.,
seeps in through the windows.o;a
Peter said the courthouse will be
lot" safer in high winds and the leak-
is- ing will be eliminated if the glass
nd is-replaced.

The courthouse was built in
1966 with plate glass, which is
regular window glass that breaks
into pieces. 'Tempered glass is
safer in the case of high winds
and it does not crack. It merely
shatters into small pieces like a
windshield," said Bill Varner,
salesperson at Mize Plumbing and
Glass Supply, Inc.
According to Bobby Hall,
salesperson at Tommy's Glass
and Mirror Company, tempered;
glass costs $7 per square foot,
"and that does not include labor.
which is $300 to $400 per, day."'

i'7 SayeSta -

Federal Consumer Protection has confirmed the accuracy of the fuel saving described in this advertisement.
Device May Increase Gas Mileage by 22%


BOSTON National Fuelsaver
Corp. of Boston has developed a
low 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 bum.
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 uriburnt fuel leaving an


.engine is pollution, this, 22% of
each gallon. would .normally burn .
when it reaches the platinum of
the catalytic converter.
Unfortunately, the converter's
platinum bums this fuel in the
tailpipe, where the heat and
energy produced, from burning
this .fuel cannot be harnessed to
drive your vehicle.
SBut 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
fite years. the government
concluded: "Independent testing
sho%%s greater fuel savings with


the Gas Saver than the 22%
claimed by the developer."
In addition to this government
stud., the Gas Saver has received
patents for cleaning out carbon
and raising octane, making
premium fuel unnecessary .for
most vehicles .
Joel Robinson, the developer,
commented: "Almost a half
million Gas Savers have been
sojd. To our' surprise, as many
people buy the Gas Saver because
it extends engine life (by cleaning
out the abrasie carbon deposits)
as buy it, to increase gas mileage -
or to raise octane."

Demopolis twice. Port St. Joe's
only win was against Charles
Henderson High School from

"The defense and pitching
were great, but our bats were cold

THE DRUG OF
GREATEST ABUSE
For millions of people, use of a very common, readily available drug can
mean going insane or cause early death unless they completely and forever abstain
from its use. The drug is alcohol and the disease is alcoholism. For most people if
is a minor problem, but for these others their body cannot cope with it.
Alcohol can also react with many other common prescription drugs to pro-
duce very severe side effects. If you are cautioned by your doctor not to drink with
a medicine, this could be the reason and you should not disregard this advice.

together at Brooksville. He has-,
always told me what a great place
this is to five, it's a good school

coming here, there is a lot more to
it than coaching a ball team.

always liked smaller towns, and
are looking forward to raising our
five year old daughter Morgan,
here in Port St. Joe."

good to taste the foods at that

"Personally I enjoyed the fam-

on the southeast side of the
house. I could not imaginee living
with three brothers in -one little
room. I also liked the quilting
room where it took so much time
and effort to make one quilt."
Trevor Burch wrote, "My
favorite part of going to the
Pioneer Settlement Was the
Yesterday's Tomorrows exhibit. I
.earned about how people in the

improve what they already had. I
also enjoyed the blacksmith's pre-

DARE is an exciting 17-week pro-
gram designed to help students
recognize and resist the pressures
that may influence them to exper-
iment with tobacco, alcohol, mar-,
ijuana, inhalants, or other drugs.
It also teaches that violence hurts
everyone. Parent/guardian par-
ticipation is an important part of
the DARE curriculum.
In order to be eligible to par-
ticipate in the DARE culmination

Fifth grade students who won

Williamson. In addition to the cer-
tificate given to, each student who
completed the program, the essay
winners were awarded medal-
lions, backpacks, and plush
Daren toys.
The intense, highly motivat-

Officer Mark Cutler and Officer
Greg Cole. These officers will
sponsor a celebratory skating trip

"My favorite part o9 the tnrp."
wrote Ryan Taylor. "was the
Yesterday's Tomorrows exhibit.
The reason to, that, is because it
had a lot of history and of what
people thought would be in the

Raevyn Jefferson liked a lot of

different. The old houses and the
hayride were exciting. I enjoyed
just being out on all of the land
.breathing in all of that fresh air.
The rooms in the houses were
very interesting and you were able
to see how they lived back in
those times. The General Store
was great because you were able

Registration for next year's!
classes and courses will take;
place between April 23rd and;


27th. Students will receive very
important information on this inj
the near future. Please be on the*
lookout for it. Take some time to!
not only review classes for next;
year, but discuss how those class-'
es will best 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 mean-
ingless, especially .if SAT or, ACT
scores do ,not match the high
GPA. Also, it costs money to take
remedial courses at college thai
would not be necessary if we took
quality courses here. And don't
forget to' look at Florida High
School, the state's Internet cours-
es!
We are working on next year's
opportunities quite feverishly. If
you would like to have input on
such things as our handbook,
course offerings, and school cal-.
endar, i.e., our events, please con-
tact us -so we might make you
aware of our meetings. Our
School Advisory Council meets
later this month on the 25th at
2:45. If you have not attended
previously, please consider this as
your invitation to join us. We are
having a faculty handbook meet-
ing on April 18 after school; a fac-
ulty visionary meeting at The
Bayou from 3 to 7 on April 24;
and we will have an open forum
handbook meeting on May 1st.
Student leaders will meet with Dr.
Truby in the near future to review,
these items as well.
Don't forget to join us for the
Relay for Life on April 20 through
21 at the high school track locat-'
ed behind the building. It will ruri
from 8:00 a.m. on Friday to 8:0D
a.m. on Saturday. For heaven's'
sake, if you cannot make it to the6
event, please support it by youi-
donations and prayers. A lot of,
progress is being made in the'
fight against cancer, and we all
have the ability to help in some'
way. WHS is selling raffle tickets

AARP Driver Safety Program Edition #5


The all new "Edition #5 AARP
Driver Safety Program," is being
sponsored by the Port St Joe
AARP. It will be held at the Senior
Center, located at 120 Library
Drive in Port St. Joe, on Monday


and Tuesday, April 23rd and 24th
from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.,
ET. This will be the last AARP
Driver Safety Program in this area
till October. If your insurance dis-
count runs out before October,


you need this class now. There are
no examinations, no driving tests
and no chance of losing your
license.
Classes will be presented in
two four-hour sessions over a
two-day period, instructed by
Dick McLaughlin, a fully trained
AARP volunteer. It is a driver
Safety Program for all those dri-
vers 50 years of, age and over. A
certificate will be issued upon
completion of the program that
may get you a discount on your
auto insurance. These certificates
are good for three years, then the
course must be taken again.
There is nothing to lose but a lit-
tle- time, with an awful lot to gain.
To cover some of the expenses, a
fee of $10 per person, preferably
in the form of a check made out to
AARP, will be collected.
This highly effective, driver
program, approved and encour-
aged by the state and federal gov-
ernments, is being presented to
reduce traffic accidents, violations
and fatalities for senior citizens
and their loved ones. AARP wants
to show senior drivers how to cope
with the age related physical
changes everyone faces. How to
become more aware of, and han-
dle, hazardous road and weather
conditions. They will cover the
new laws, highway signs and road
markings, and the safety aspect of
driving, ways to handle the dan-
gers of alcohol, medications, and
the two in combination. Also cov-
ered will be ways to avoid the
criminal while getting into, out of,


and while driving a car. These are
just a few of the topics covered,
plus much, much more.
Again, "Who needs this
course?" According to all govern-
ment and insurance company
reports, every driver age 50 and
over needs to re-evaluate their
abilities on the road. Please don't
be one of those people who believe
there is nothing more to learn
because you have been driving for
40, 50, or 60 years. Millions of
people that have taken this course
would prove you wrong. Make
your reservation now since space
is limited. Call Hardy Stohler, at
(850) 647-5911. Walk-ins are wel-
come, (if the class is not filled).

Is It Ind
There is much misinforma-
tion concerning the warning signs
of a heart attack. Most of us have
the "Fred Sanford" image of a man
suddenly clutching his chest and
yelling, "I am having the big one
mama," which implies a sudden
sharp stabbing pain. Reality is
that greater than 25 percent of
heart attacks are "silent heart
attacks," which present with sud-
den death without any chest dis-
comfort. Approximately 50
percent survive.
The forturmate ones have a
warning symptom called "Angina,"
which is a mild to moderate dis-
comfort, tightness or burning in
the chest that comes on with exer-
tion and subsides with rest. There
is-often an associated shortness of
breath and radiation of numbness
in. the left arm. Sometimes angina
can be a very vague feeling or
ache in the neck or jaw during
exertion.
Denial is often the first symp-
tom: "I have indigestion" or "I am
just short of breath. because I
have gained weight," or "if I just
wait it will pass." Denial is also
the, most deadly mistake that you
can make.
Heart disease is one of the
most preventable because of the
<1 advances in medication, surgery;
angioplasty and a multitude of
technology that improves almost
daily.' Most .important is the
"Golden Hour" the first hour from
the onset of the symptoms .of
pressure or tightness in the chest
when the heart attack starts.
Mortality rates -plummet for the
ones who procrastinate in seeking
help. If you can get to a hospital
within the first hour, recovery
rates are drastically improved.
Chest pain is almost a mis-
nomer for the actual description
of the discomfort. It is classically
described as a heaviness or tight-
ness, like a band is wrapped
around the chest and being tight-
ened, or an "elephant is setting on
my chest." There is often sweating
arid cool clammy skin. The pain is
seldom sharp and stabbing. It can


Over 50? These Tests
Could Save Your Life
The American Cancer Society
predicts startling figures for 200a1:
98,200 new cases of colon cancer
and 37,200 new cases of rectal
cancer will be discovered in the
United .States. This is important
riews bo,r-s ensoras: old,..age is the
single most important risk factor
for these cancers.
Beginning at age 50, men and
women should have regular
screenings that can find colon
and rectal cancers early. If found
early, these cancers are highly*
treatable and curable. (Those that
have a family history of colon or
rectal cancer should be screened
before age 50.)
i For people with Medicare over.
age 50, Medicare will help pay for
A screening fecal occult blood
test every year. This test looks
for hidden blood in the stool.
A flexible sigmoidoscopy every
four years. The doctor inserts a
slender. flexible tube -into the
rectum to look at the lining of
the rectum and lower part of
the colon, and is able to find
and sometinIes remove polyps
or cancers.
A colonoscopy every two years
for those at high risk for cancer
of the ;colon. Therdoctor inserts
a slender, -flexible tube into the
rectum to look at the lining of
the rectumn and, entire' colon,
and is able to find and remove
polyps and some cancers.
A double contrast barium
enema. The doctor can substi-
tute this test for a sigmoi-.
doscopy or colonoscopy.
Barium flows from a tube into
the colon, creating an outline
around polyps and other
growths so they are visible on
the x-ray.

A normal "EKG" (Electrocar-
diogram) means only that the
heart is beating normally at the
time of the exam. The EKG only
changes after the damage to the
heart muscle has happened. The
diagnosis needs a comparison
with a baseline EKG and evalua-
tion of cardiac enzymes (blood
test) and 'good history taking by
the examiner. This can, only be
done in. an emergency room or
doctor's office.
You should never try to drive
yourself or anyone else to a hospi-
tal. Extremely dangerous irregu-
lar heart rhythms often occur
during the first hours of a heart
attack. Trained EMT (Emergency
Medical Technicians) enroute to
the hospital can easily control
these. If these rhythms happen
while you are driving your car,'
you may kill yourself, your pas-
sengers and other unfortunate
persons in your path.
You may feel embarrassed
about riding in an ambulance,
however, once you have made the
9-1-1 call, you have placed your-
self in the hands of highly trained
professionals that can save your

National Immunization Week April 22-28


National Infant Immunization
Week, April 22 through 28 is, a
good time to focus on the impor-
tance of getting children immu-
nized, not just to protect the
individual child, but to protect the
health of the entire community.
The more children who are
immune from the preventable
childhood illnesses, the less risk
there is for those in the commu-
nity who are not immunized-this
may include the very. young, the
elderly, those with weakened
immune systems, the poor, and
the underserved.
The problem in the commu-
nity today is that people have not
seen a case of diphtheria. pertus-
sis, or polio in several genera-
tions. They don't realize the
severity and devastation these
diseases can cause. Many parents
think the discomfort caused by.
the injection or the infinitesimal
risk of serious illness from the


immunization itself is a good rea-
son not to immunize their chil-
dren. But parents who do
immunize their children not only
provide individual protection to
them. but also contribute to the
overall protection of other chil-
dren.
Here are some childhood
immunization facts.
Immunization Prevents Disease
Immunization is one of the
most effective ways of prevent-
ing disease. The level of vac-
cine-preventable disease has
'been reduced by more than 99
percent since the introduction
of vaccines. Reported cases of
vaccine-preventable disease.
are at. or near. all-time-low lev-
els.
SPrior to widespread immuniza-,
tion in the United States, infec-
tious diseases killed or
disabled thousands of children
each year. Tens of thousands of-


cases of paralytic polio and an
average of 450,000 measles
.cases were reported annually.
* The measles epidemic of 1989-
91 affected more than 55,000
people: 11.000 were hospital-
ized and more than 120 died. A-
major cause of the measles epi-
demic was the failure to vacci-
nate children on time at 12 to.
15 months of age.
* The World Health Organization
declared the Americas free of
polio in 1994. Reported cases
have declined by more than 80
percent globally since 1988.
These extraordinary results are
the direct effect of immuniza-
tions against polio.
Childhood illnesses 'that could
be prevented by immunization
are still with us. Approximately
3.5 million cases of varicella
(chickenpox) occur each year.
This rate is expected to
decrease with the introduction
of the new vaccine.
A vaccine for H. influenza type
b (HIB) decreased the incidence
of Hib meningitis 82 'percent
between 1985 and 1991.
In' the 1920's, about 125,000
cases and 10,000 deaths were
caused by diphtheria each
year. In the 1980's, 27 cases
were reported, including three
Sfatal cases.
Immunize by Age Two '
Children need 80 percent of
their vaccinations in the first
two years' of their life. This
requires multiple doses of vac-
cine given in about five visits to
a health care provider.
The year 2000 goal of the
Childhood Immunization
Initia-Live is to have at least 90
percent of all children immu-


*- nized by two years 'of age with
the recommended vaccine
series. This series includes four
doses of diphtheria/tetanus
/pertussis (DTP) vaccine, three
doses of polio vaccine, and one
dose of measles/mumps/
rubella (MIR) vaccine.
In 1994 75 percent of the
Station's two year olds received
the recommended series of vac-
cines-the highest level ever
recorded, Despite this success,
about 25 percent of America's
toddlers-or almost 1.4 million
two year olds-lack one .or
more doses of this series.
A second goal is to have 70 per-
cent of children immunized
with the more recently intro-
duced vaccines, hepatitis B. H.
influenzae type b (Hib), and
varicella (chickenpox).
All 50 states and the District of
Columbia have immunization
requirements for children
entering day care and school.
There are no such laws ensur-
ing that children are up .to date
on their shots by age two.
Children who begin the immu-
nization series late are much
less likely to complete the
series on time than other chil-
dren. Children who have not
received anv doses of vaccines
by three months of age are one-
third less likely to be immu-
nized than children who did.
Immunization Saves Money
Immunization is one of the
most, cost-effective medical
interventions available. For
every dollar spent on 'immu-'
nization, as many as $29 can
be saved in direct and indirect
costs.
For every dollar spent on the


measles/mumps/rubella vac-
cine, $21 are saved.,
* For every dollar spent on the
diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis
vaccine, $29 are saved.
* For every dollar spent on the
polio vaccine, $6 are saved.
Why Are Children Under
Immunized?
* No single factor accounts for
under immunization, but vari-
ous risk factors have been
identified, including low
parental education levels, large
family size, low socioeconomic
status, nonwhite race, young
parental age, use of public clin-
ics, and lack of prenatal care.
* Inadequate access to medical
care, deficiencies in the public
health "care delivery system,
and lack of public awareness ,
are other factors contributing
to under immunization. .
Some children miss immuniza-
tions because their records are
misplaced and parents and
providers are not aware of
which vaccinations the child
has had. Some states have
instituted computerized immu-
nization records that will
ensure that all children's
records are up to date and
complete. even if they move or
change health care providers.
Opportunities to vaccinate chil-
'dren may be missed because
providers are misinformed
about contraJndication or are
unwilling to give more than two
vaccines dunng the same visit.
When to Vaccinate
General guidelines for immu-
nizations in the first two years
of life are as follows. Health
care providers determine the
best schedule for each child;
*Diphthena/tetanus/per-
tussis (DPT): four vaccina-
tions, at two, four, six, and
15 to6 18 months.
*Polio: three vaccinations, at
two, four, and six to 18
months.
*Measles/mumps /rubella
(MMR) one vaccination at 12
to 15 months.
*Chickenpox: 'One vaccina-
-tion at12 to 18 months.
eHepatitis B: three vaccina-

tions at 0 to two months,
one to four months, and six
to 18 months.
*H. influenzae type B (HIB):
three for four vaccinations at
two, four, six, and 12 to 15
months.
Catch-up vaccinations can be
given if the child did not get the
vaccinations at the recom-
mended times. but delays in
starting immunization result in
less protection against disease.
In most cases, multiple vac-
cines can be 'given without
increasing the risk of adverse
effects or decreasing the effec-.
tiveness of the vaccines.
