Attorney General Says To Count



Prisoners; Commissioners Disagree


Vote 3-2 tc
Gulf County commissioners
received an opinion from Florida
Attorney General Robert A.
Butterworth stating that, "The
Gulf County Board of County
Commissioners must include and
count the prison population
within the district in which such
prison population is physically
located when attempting to bal-
ance each of the five county dis-
tricts."
Gulf County Attorney Tim
McFarland explained to the com-
missioners during Monday after-_
noon's special board meeting. that
the attorney general had voiced
his opinion clearly in his written
statement to the board-
"Absolutely, yes," we should
include prisoners in our district
counts.
He also noted the attorney
general makes a good point stat-
ing legislators should address this
portion of state law; but, as the
law at this time says, prisoners
must be included.
"If you don't count prisoners,

then you're opening yourselves up
to a serious legal challenge," the
county attorney advised.
McFarland said the same
opinion would also hold true for
the Gulf County School Board's
redistricting efforts.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
noted this has been the attorney's
advice from day one, and the
board has to follow the law even
though it's not what they want to
do.
d Commissioner Carmen
McLemore also agreed, "It's plain
and clear," speaking of the intent
of the attorney general's opinion.
Commission Chairman
Nathan Peters, Jr. differed with
both commissioners stating that
the board should listen to the
people who have overwhelmingly
stated that they do not want to

redistricting in the county.
McFarland was asked by
Commissioner Carl Fox, "Do we
have a choice?" The county attor-

position was challenged, it would
have to defend its stance. One


such defense might be to show
how including prisoners would
skew the balance of county dis-


tricts. He also cautioned that the

Tropical Storm Does Little Damage In Gulf


Tropical Storm Barry didn't

Emergency Management Director
Larry Wells, there was probably

not more than $150,000 to
$200,000 worth* of damage in Gulf
County. Most of that damage was
caused by torrential rains which
took a .toll on primarily unpaved
roads within the county. Wells
said Road Department work
crews would be busy for some
time trying to repair washouts,
reshaping ditches, and grading
roads back to their normal
smooth finish.
Heavy rains started early
Sunday morning and continued
through Monday making out
stormwater drainage associated
with the roads' infrastructure.
Wells said the southern por-
tion of the county received 8 inch-
es plus of rain during Tropical
Storm Barry while the northern
portion of the county received 6
inches plus, Those rainfall
amounts cold vary as much as a
couple of inches depending upon
exactly where the heaviest part of
rainstorms happened to unload
its cargo.
Erosion was very minimal,
according to Wells. As far as he
could tell with the naked eye, the
Cape area fared very well, experi-
encing some erosion, but certain-
ly not major damage compared to
other similar storms.
"The maximum sustained
winds were registered at 38 miles
per hour on the Cape," Wells said.
Wind gusts reached speeds of 45
miles per hour.

The City of Port St. Joe is
once again looking to expand its
city limits. Mayor Frank Pate out-
lined to the board a section of St.
Joe Company property situated
between Highway 98 and the
power line right-of-way, approxi-
mately one mile up the Industrial
Road.
The property is located on
both the east and west sides of
the Industrial Road and ties into
the northernmost boundaries of
the existing city limits.. Pate said
the company is willing to enter
into a voluntary annexation
agreement.
Property located between the
Gulf County Canal and Industrial
Road will be zoned light industri-
al and commercial and property
located off the eastern side of
Industrial Road will be zoned light
industrial, according to Pate.
Several areas will'be excluded in
the annexation effort including
the Material Transfer, Inc. proper-
ty, Premier Services, Townsend.
Marine, and several other smaller
parcels.
The board voted 5-0 to pro-
ceed with the effort and will begin


The medical alert for West
Nile Virus and Eastern Equine
Encephalitis continues through-
out 28 counties in North Florida.
Neither of the diseases have
been confirmed to be present in
Gulf County to-date. Both have
ben found in some surrounding
counties and testing is currently
being conducted on a total of
eight birds found dead in Gulf
County over the past few weeks.
Gulf County Health Director
Doug Kent notes that it takes four
weeks for testing to be completed
on birds to see if they have been
Infected by West Nile Virus and
Eastern Equine Encephalitis. The
first test results should be
received within one and one-half
weeks. Just because dead birds
were found does not mean they
have been infected by the viruses,
Anyone who does locate dead
birds is asked to report It to the
Gulf County Sheriffs Office or the
Gulf County Health Department.
Birds have to be fresh in order to
be tested (died within a 24 hour
period) and should be placed in a
plastic bag and refrigerated until
they are turned over to authori-
ties, according to Kent. Testing of
dead birds is a vital way to keep
up with the spread of West Nile
Virus and Eastern Equine

GAC TaktIg On Water-
The city buildings, located on
Peters Street, that house the Gulf
County Association for Retarded
Citizens are taking on water.
Program Director Diane
Harrison approached the board
explaining that roof and founda-
tion problems are making it diffi-
cult to win the battle with water
and carry on business at the
same time. Harrison acknowl-
edged that the GARC has a lease
that obligates them to be respon-
sible for upkeep and told the
board. "We're not here for money."
What she did request of the
board was assistance to receive
possible grant monies through
city applications, because of its
ownership. Board members and
Harrison discussed several
options including USDA Rural
Development grant funds and
FEMA assistance. The board
appeared willing to help as much
, as possible.

Encephalitis.
It is not unusual to find dead
birds. Nor does their discovery
mean that these diseases were the
cause of death. The only way to
know for sure is to do the testing.
Human infection has been
documented in North Florida, but
none in close proximity to Gulf
County.
Kent said that the West Nile
Virus is usually not an Issue for
healthy people. Older adults and
immune deficient persons should
be very careful with their expo-
sure to mosquitoes.
The Florida Department of
Health has extended a previous
medical alert for these diseases to
include the following counties:
Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia,
Duval, Hamilton, Lafayette,
Nassau, St. Johns, Suwannee
and Union.
The alert continues to be in
effect for Okaloosa, Santa Rosa,
Walton, Holmes, Washington,
Jackson, Bay, Calhoun, Gulf,
Franklin, Liberty, Gadsden,
Wakulla, Leon, Jefferson, Madi-
son and Taylor counties.

1 He Gave Me The "Want To"!


Just When We


Thought It Was Over

There were no big surprises when Florida's Attorney General
Robert A. Butterworth released his opinion on whether Gulf
should include inmate numbers when figuring for new voting dis-
trict boundaries.
Butterworth states, "I am of the opinion that the prison popu-
lation must be included." That is not what I wanted to hear, nor
is it what 100% of the people to which I've spoken or from which
I have heard from wanted to hear. Why, even the folks that I've
conversed with who said they felt the attorney general would rule
this way don't agree with the concept.
In the attorney general's opinion, he points to Florida legisla-
tors saying this is a legislative issue controlled by state law, and
they, the legislators, may wish to consider whether prison popu-
lation should be included in population counts for redistricting
purposes.
Now just because the attorney general said it's so does not
make it so; but, he certainly carries more weight than I do. I have
to agree with him though. I can certainly see in very large coun-
ties and in the case of legislative and state-wide redistricting,
where counting prison population has minimal or no impact on,
the demographics of the community or those districts.,
This is not the case in small rural counties and has not been
addressed by the legislature or the attorney general. How anyone
can compare counting children, who can't' vote yet, who live in
households across the county, and are ,equally distributed with
their parents, to prisoners, who also can't vote and reside "invol-
untarily" within one small area, as being somewhat similar in sit-'
uations and circumstances, is way beyond my simple reasoning.
power. I guess it's just the way it is.
Gulf County commissioners, in a close 3-2 vote, decided they
would stick to their earlier decision not to count inmate numbers
regardless of the attorney general's opinion. They also agreed to
adopt Scenario 17A with a slight revision-moving all of the
Overstreet (Precinct 4) community into District 3, rather, than
dividing the area between Districts 2 and 3.
Does this mean it's over? Who knows?
The commissioners who voted in favor of the board's stance
stated they were following the will of the people (Barnes, Fox, and
Peters), while those who supported following the opinion of the
attorney general (Traylor and McLemore) insisted that following
the interpretation of the law should take precedence.
These are two good reasons to vote the way they (the board)
voted. Finding the balance between what the people feel is right
and what is the intent of Florida law obviously is not as simple as
black and white.
No one I've spoken with, including several legal minds, ever
imagined that the attorney general would be so definitive with his
response on this issue. There could very possibly be a day in the
not-too-distant future when the county is challenged on this
question once again, either through legal challenge or: through
judicial intervention.
My concerns and desires on a personal level remain.the same
regardless of whether we are eventually forced to count prisoners
or not. Gulf County's citizens deserve like district boundaries in
both the school board and county commission. Those new bound-
aries should not give the appearance of gerrymandering or be
based on political strategies and spite, but rather what is best for
the people whom both boards serve.
Jimmy Conway may have summed up my feeling best when he
stated during the board's special meeting Monday that-"It's time
to get this petty stuff behind us."
We seem to have taken an all too familiar confrontational
stance on this subject. In my experiences in watching these
things build in years past, nobody ever wins in these sort of
battles. In fact, we all usually end up losing, or looking foolish.
Whatever happens in days to come, I hope the boards, and
just as importantly, the public's input will change from this
mood of confrontation-cause like ol' .Conway said, we've got a
lot more important business to take care of.


I read where Arnold Palmer
said he might cut back on his play-
ing schedule. He was embarrassed
by a round in the 80s at the recent
Senior British Open.
Heck, I shoot a round in the


80s and I take my first wife out to
dinner!
Now listen. I know everything
is relative. And Mr. Palmer's stan-
dards when it comes to golf ain't
exactly the same as mine. He has
entertained and thnlled mJillions
with his playing skills since the
mid-fifties. I haven't killed anyone
on the golf course-that I know ofl
Yet!
And we all understand that
age has diminished his ability to
perform at his former level. But let


me tell you something, he could
swing and miss and I would pay to
go see it! I grew up reading about
his relentless charges down the
fairways of far away places like
Augusta and Pebble Beach and St.
Andrews .
He was Jack Armstrong in
spikes.
SWe didn't know a thing about
golf back then. We'd never even
seen a real golf course! The game
was for the wealthy. Truck drivers'
sons helped on the farm. We could


pick up a hundred bales of ha in
the length of time it would take to
play a round of golf ....
Arnold Palmer changed our
thinking. For some unexplainable
reason-maybe the way he confi-
dently climbed into a green side
bunker, or hitched up his pants
before knocking one stiff, or stait-
ed walking after a good shot-. ven
before it landed-he seemed more
like one of us than one of them.
And he didn't back offl Winl,
lose or draw, he played everyshebt
full out! Lay up wasn't in 'his
vocabulary. He played gplf with ,a
zest that captivated us and
drew us to a sport we knew notli-
ing about .... .
We took to wrapping tape
around a marble and hitting It
with a croquet mallet. We dug
holes in the back yard and stuck
Calumet Baking Soda cans in .the
ground for cups. We fought over
which one of us got to be Arnold
Palmer.
You can imagine our joy when
Mr. Ben Everett and4 Mr. Jolhn
Padgett and some others decided
to build a golf course out behirid
Carroll Lake. I was just barely in
my teens when I stepped onto my
first real golf course! It wasn't .the
TPC at Sawgrass mind you, but it
had greens and fairways and little
mounds to mark where you start-
ed each hole. And they had care-
fully fenced off all the cows. -
\Ve stood around a few min-
utes and watched Roe Alexander
and Joe Gooch hit off of the first
tee. Those were the, first live"
swings we had ever seen. Shoot;.it
didn't look too hard! We rented a
set of clubs, Leon asked Mr.
Padgett, "Where is the first tee .
and what is the course record?"
and we were offi
We took a few practice swings,
had a pretty good fight over who
was going to be Arnold Palmer anid
attacked that first hole like
General Patten moving toward the
Rhine. We adapted our baseball
swings as best we could and start-
ed hitting golf balls all over the
place! You may not believe this but
golf is not as easy as it looks!
I think I had a twenty-three on
the first hole I ever played. And I
lost two balls. And hit a road sign,
a pond and two trees that someone
had thoughtlessly left on the
course .... and a cow that, as you
know, wasn't!
Mr. Palmer doesn't want 1to
talk embarrassment with me. I
have swung and missed! I teed off
on the seventh hole in the Carroll
Lake Golf Classic in 1973 and hit
the ball between my legs. It
rolled to a stop under a water cool-
er about ten feet directly behind
me. When the laughter died down
to a dull roar David Mark remind-
ed me that it was still my turn.
I have hit cars in the parking
lot. I have driven into the foursome
on the adjoining fairway. I have

Local Property Tax Time Creeps "Up" On Us Again!


IT'S PROPERTY VALUATION
time again and the governing
boards are salivating over the
windfall of extra taxes they are
going to have available to preside
over.
From what I read in the
paper, every governing body is
going to raise taxes, apparently
just because they can; just
because the law allows them to do
so. I know everybody wants more
money to spend. Even me! But I
have no largess forcing itself on
me, giving me an extra 15% or so.
I am one of those unlucky
ones who is stuck on a fixed
income. My income didn't
increase this year in order to
make it possible to absorb a tax
increase.
I suspect, now that the paper
mill has shut down, that there
are a fair number of citizens in
Port St. Joe and Gulf County who
are in the same boat. We have
changed from a county of high
wage earners to a county of


retired people and retired people
are, for the most part, on fixed.
incomes.
We're trying to figure out how
to pay for that extra prescription
we need to maintain some sem-
blance of good health; not pay
extra taxes.

IF THE VARIOUS commis-
sions could be satisfied with the
extra money being generated by
new construction in the county, it
wouldn't be so bad. But, no, they
all must opt for a tax increase, on
top of the extra dollars they will
have at their disposal.

we're not careful. Just because
we have a valuation dollar or two "
available to back uip extra taxes,
is no reason. to go out hunting
something to 'pend it on.
President George Bush, all
through his campaign, hit on the
theme, "Tax money belongs to the
people in the first place; the gov-
ernment is just a caretaker of a
;portion of it."
Nobody well, hardly any-
body begrudges paying their
fair share of taxes; but only their
fair share.
When it comes to the paying
of taxes, just so government can
have all the things it wants; there
is where -the line should be
drawn. None of us have every-
thing we desire because our earn-
ings are finite. We are limited to
the amount of money we have to
spend whether or not we are on a
fixed income.
We don't expect our governing
bodies to practice stinginess in
our services, but we do expect


them to practice some portion of
frugality in the handling of OUR
moneyl

I KNOW I HAVE AN easy life
and I have little problem living
within my available finances, but
I certainly don't have a stash set
aside to feet any expense, no
matter what-it may be.
I don't think there are many
people, living in our county, who
do have an unlimited of money.
Even our commissioners!
So, why not use a little bit of
the tax request axe on- some of
the increase? Why not measure
every expenditure request by the
yardstick of you, yourself, out of
your pocket, having to pay each
request before you say "OK".
I realize people want more
and more money in their pay-
checks. I realize the state govern-
ment is requiring more and more
expenditures on the county level.
I realize machinery wears out and
has to be replaced.

I also realize that part of
these state requests are not "set
in stone". Some of these replace-
ments of machinery are not
replacements, but are instead, "in
place of", just because we may
want them.
As a "for instance";, the cur-
rent rage for a new voting system.
Florida wasn't the only state with
voting problems; it was just the
only state where it was evident
that a better way might be need-
ed.

have. rocked along pretty well,
counting on our properties'
increased valuation to provide us
with the needed increases and
everybody was happy. Now, We
come along with a year in which
the increased property valuation
is a windfall! Must we also add a
sizeable tax increase-must .we
add ANY tax Increase to it? 5n tt
we manage without it? j

Commission


language of the statutes concern-
ing redistricting is very clear.
.Judge Has to Approve Plan
'Because of Consent Decree
Contained in Butterworth's
written opinion, he also brought
up the fact that Gulf County is
under a 1986 consent decree that
establishes district boundaries as,
part' of a federal lawsuit which
created single member. districts
arid a minority district.
Butterworth stated that those
conditions must be followed until
such time, that the agreement is
revised.
The board's attorney
explained that whatever scenario
the board formally adopted for the
county,,it would have to be taken
before a federal judge for his
approval before it could be legally
adopted in order to be within the
provisions of the consent decree.
During these discussions,
Commissioner Jerry Barnes final-
ized the feeling of board members
.when he. commented, "If we're
gping to have to go to court any-
way, then I'm going to represent
the.people."
Several people in attendance
also voiced their opinions con-
V cerning the attorney general's
response.
Republican Party Chairman
Gary Ross said the party would


take up the question with legisla-
tors in the next session.
Charles Doyle pointed to the
amendments of the constitution
which states that representation
shall be reduced for those
involved in crime.
Allen Cox suggested the
board consider looking at a com-
promise scenario (#16) that seems
to fit the criteria of the opinion,
but takes a sensitive look at the
Highland View (Precinct #5) and
Port St. Joe (Precinct #12) areas.
Marion Hough questioned the
attorney general's case law list-
ings and county's legal insurance
coverage.
Jimmy Conway urged the
board to "get together" and put
the petty stuff behind them so the
county could get on with more
important business.
Ben Pridgeon said the attor-
ney general is an elected official
and not a judge. Comparing
counting prisoners to the Boston
Tea Party, he said, "I'm ready to
throw the tea overboard."
. Commissioner McLemore
made a motion to count inmates
population in redistricting num-
bers. ,
His motion was seconded by
Commissioner Billy Traylor, bas-
ing it on. the attorney general's
opinion. Commissioners Barnes,

chipped into the club swimming
pool. I have been so far back in the
woods that a Tarzan yell was more
appropriate than "fore." I once
relocated an entire sand trap.
I've gotten to where I won't
even play those courses where
they let idiots build houses right,
out next to the fairway. I've busted
screens, broken windows, bounced
Titleists off roofs, had to play shots
out of planters ....
I've had playing partners get
behind trees and lay down when it
was my turn. There are courses
that sound the siren when I drive
up. quit playing with my sons
when they started beating me on a
regular basis-that happened
when they reached age seven.
Cathy went out to watch me play-
one time!
I once hit a shot that broke a
guy's kneecap in the group -that
was coming off the green behind
me! I didn't get my drive up and I
pushed it a tad to the right. It hit


the concrete hole marker and rico-
cheted straight back. Poor guy
rolled around in pain for thirty
minutes. And boy, was he mad! He
had to play the rest of the round
out of his cart!
So, Mr. Palmer, let me set you
straight on a couple of things. You
could never embarrass yourself,
us, or the game of golf. I don't care
what you shoot! You have meant
too much to too many for so long!
Listen, admiration and adoration
won't win you a green jacket--but
it's better than a poke in the eye
with a broken putter shaft!
Thank- you on behalf of ,a
grateful nation.
And if you still have some
moments of frustrauon, come play
a round with me. My game will
make you feel like it's 1960 and

Misdiagnosis of Skin
You may be relieved when a skin
cancer biopsy comes back benign, but
should you be concerned about who is
reading your biopsy? Many patients
are not, often resulting in tragic and
fatal consequences.
Since a misdiagnosed skin cancer
biopsy can spread through the body
and be fatal if left untreated, dermatol-
ogists across the country are encourag-
ing managed care companies to send
biopsies to dermatopathologists doc-
tors specially trained in clinically diag-
nosing skin biopsies rather than gen-
eral pathologists for the accurate inter-
pretation of skin slides
A dermatopjathologist is board certi-
fied in either surgical pathology or
dermatology to interpret skin biopsy
'specimens microscopically and re-.
ceives training in an accredited surgi-
cal pathologN or dermatology program
for at least one year. However, ac-
Lcording to a recent srud3 by the Amer-
ican Academn of Dermatology, only
40 percent of managed care approved
labs allow derinatologists to send skin
biopsies to dermniatopathologists.
S"Under many managed care plans,
dermatologists are required to send
skin biopsies to a laboratory mandated
hbv the plan's contract rather than to
die laboratory of their choice." says
dermatologist Mark Lebwohl, M.D.,
Professor and Chairman, Department
of Dermnatology at Mt. Sinai School of
Medicine in Nev. York "When this
happens, there is no guarantee that a
dermatopathologist is interpreting the
skin biopsN and any pathologist. re-
gardless of experience. can end up
reading these slides."
While managed care companies may
save a little money up front by sending
skin biopsies to laboratories that only
emplo\ pathologists. they will end up
spending large sums of money to treat
severe, life-threaiening conditions -
such as melanoma that could have

out power for some time Monday.
The only real structural dam-
age of any significance reported
was to a home in Wewahitchka. A
tree fell across power lines and
pulled the service weather head
causing minor damage to the
home.
Some flash flooding was also
reported in downtown Port St.
Joe, causing some minor water
damage to businesses.


Cancer Can Be Fatal


been avoided if a dermatopathologist
had been used to analyze the speci-
men.
'In the most serious cases, a skin
cancer biopsy that is misdiagnosed as
benign can spread throughout the body
and be fatal if left untreated. Dr.
Lebwohl cites one case in which a
pigmented lesion was biopsied as-be-
nign, but when the referring dermatol-
ogist, pressed for a review by a d. s
matopathologist. the diagnosis came
back as melanoma, the deadliest form
of skin cancer. Without the interpreta-
tion of the dermatopathologist. this
serious malignancy %would not have
been recognized and could have been

Wewahitchka Elementary
School anticipates yet another
tremendously. productive year.
WES teachers reported to work on
Thursday, August 2nd. They
spent one day in service training
and three days working in their
,-classrooms preparing for the
" coming school year.
WES students will be return-
ing to an "A" school on Thursday,
August 8th. Their hard work and
diligence last year in preparing for
the state-wide standardized test,
the FCAT. earned them a very.
Coveted position among the high-
est-rated schools in the state; a
fact which students, teachers and
parents can be very proud.
There will be a few changes in
the faculty at WES 'this year.
Three teachers, Lori Hast, Sue
McDaniel and Diane Weherley
accepted teaching positions near-
er to their homes. It was difficult
to say good-bye to these devoted
teachers. We are certain they will
go on to become wonderful assets
to the faculties of their respective
schools and we wish them all the
best.
Veteran kindergarten teacher,
Nadine Whitfield, has joined the
ranks of the retired. She too will
be greatly missed, but promises to
visit us often. We hope that she
finds much joy in her retirement
as she provided to the many
youngsters that had the privilege
of passing through her classroom.
WES guidance counselor,
Pam Lister, has embraced a new
challenge. Lister will serve as
middle school coordinator as
efforts are being made to address
the need for a middle school in.
our area. -She has an awesome
task before her but is uniquely
qualified and certain to be most
instrumental in addressing the
needs of our middle school stu-
dents., Principal designees, Bill
Carr and Lori Price, will share the
responsibilities .of the guidance
counselor office at WES this year.
They are grateful to know that
Lister is "just down the road," and
realize that our loss is WMS's
gain. We wish these three educa-
tors the best in their new roles.

eat breakfast in our cafeteria if
desired, we ask that they not
arrive on campus exceedingly
early.
Students who ride the bus in

2:30 while those who walk or are
picked up by parents, are dis-

slightly different schedule. The
sixth graders will return to one
more new class to make it to on
time, a new dress code, a veteran
faculty returns almost intact from
the 00-01 school year. These are
some of the items making news at
Port St. Joe Middle School this
year.
The new bell schedule is the
result of the need to add a reading
course for all students in grades
seven and eight. In order to
address this need, a seventh peri-
od was added to the school day.
This only lengthened the day by
one minute, and school will still
dismiss at 2:36 this year. The first
bell in the morning still rings at
7:55 a.m. and the tardy bell for
first period .will ring at 8:00 a.m.
Parents should consult page five
of your student's planner for par-
ticulars related to the new bell
schedule.
Another result of adding a
seventh period to make a reading
class reality for all students, was
sixth graders also needed a sev-

experience has been added for
sixth graders. SLxth graders will
have one semester of Computer

Choices students will address the
following topics: goal setting, how
to be successful in middle school,
career choices, dealing with peer
pressure on many fronts, and

Store Supply of Water for An Emergency


by Chris Floyd, Disaster Services
-Director Capital Area Chapter of
the American Red Cross
If a hurricane, winter storm or
other disaster strikes your com-
-munity, you might not have
access to food, water and electric-
ity for days, even weeks. We all
know that water is a survival pri-
ority, and by taking time now to
store an emergency supply, you
.can provide for your entire family
in a disaster situation.
- You must have an ample sup-
:ply of clean water-at least' one
-gallon per person per day. You
should store at minimum a two
.week supply for each member of
your family. You will need this
water for drinking, food prepara-
tion and hygiene. Store your water
in thoroughly washed plastic,
glass, fiberglass or enamel-lined
metal containers. Never use a
container that has held toxic sub-


stances. Plastic containers, such
as soft drink bottles, are best.
Seal water containers tightly,
label, them, and store in a cool,
dark place. Rotate water every six
months.
If for some reason disaster
catches you without a stored sup-
ply of clean water, you can use the
water in your pipes, hot-water
tank, and ice cubes. As a last
resort, you can use the water in -
the reservoir tank of your toilet
(not the bowl). To use the water in
your pipes, let air into the plumb-
ing by turning on the faucet inm
your house at the highest level. A
small amount of water will trickle
out. Then obtain water from the
lowest faucet in the house. To use
the water in your hot-water tank,
be sure the electricity or gas is off,
and open the drain at the bottom
of the tank. Start the water flow-
ing by turning off the water intake


valve and turning on the hot-
water faucet. Do not turn on the
gas or electricity when the tank is
empty.
You can find water outside
your home from the following
sources: rainwater; streams,
rivers, and other moving bodies of
water; ponds and lakes; and nat-
ural springs. This water must be
purified before drinking it. Avoid
water with floating material, an
odor or dark color. Use saltwater
only if you distill it first. You
should not drink flood water.
How to Purify Water
You should purily all water of,
uncertain purity before using it
for drinking, food preparation or
hygiene. There are many ways to
purify water. None is perfect.
Often the best solution is a com-
bination of methods. Boiling and
disinfecting are two methods
which will kill most microbes in,
water. Distillation is a more thor-
ough method as it removes the
microbes that resist boiling and
disinfecting. It also removes heavy
metals, salts, and most other
chemicals.
Boiling is the safest
method of purifying water. Bring
water'to a rolling boil for three to'
five minutes, keeping in rmnd that
some water will evaporate. Let the
water cool before drinking. Boiled
water will taste better if you put
oxygen back into it by pouring the
water back and forth between two
clean containers. This will also
improve the taste of stored water.
Disinfecting involves
using household liquid bleach to
kill microorganisms. Use only reg-
ular household liquid bleach that
contains 5.25 percent sodium
hypochlorite. Do not use scented
bleaches, colorsafe bleaches or
bleaches with added cleaners.
Add 16 drops of bleach per gallon
of water stir and let stand for 30
minutes. If the water does not
have a slight bleach odor repeat
the dosage and let stand another
15 minutes. Again, the only agent


used to purify water should be
household liquid bleach. Other
chemicals, such as iodine or
water treatment products sold in
camping or surplus stores that do
not contain 5.25 percent sodium
hypochloriteite as the only active
ingredient., are not recommended
and should not be used. -
Distillation involves boil-
ing water and then collecting the
vapor that condenses back to
water. The condensed vapor will


not include salt and other impuri-
ties. To distill, fill a pot halfway
with 'water. Tie a cup to the han-
dle on the pot's lid so that the cup
will hang right-side-up when the
lid is upside-down (make sure the
cup is not dangling into the water)
and boil the water for 20 minutes.
The water that drips from the lid
into the cup is distilled.
If supplies run low, never
ration water. Drink the, amount
you need today, and try to find
more for tomorrow. You can mini-


mize the amount of water your
body needs by reducing activity
and staying cool.

emergency preparedness or to
.become a Disaster Resistant
Neighborhood, please contact the

Killing Birds and Other Wildlife


Would Not Stop West Nile Virus


Although some well-meaning
'Floridians are. calling for a whole-
sale slaughter of birds to stop the
,West Nile virus outbreak and
other mosquito-borne diseases,
wildlife officials say that would t
work.
"Birds aren't causing the
problem-mosquitoes are," said
George Wallace. Ph.D., bird con-
- servatioh coordinator for the'Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) office in
Panama City.
"Birds, especially crows, are
just victims." Wallace said.: West
Nile virus is what scientists call
an "arbovirus"-a disease spread
by such critters as mosquitoes,
sand flies and ticks. Mosquitoes
carry West Nile virus in their sali-
va, and they infect host species.
such as birds, when the insects
bite to draw blood.
'Some birds die within a cou-
ple of days." Wallace said.
'Others, the birds that survive the
virus. will have infectious West
Nile virus for one to four days'
after exposure. Then they are
immune.'
A large number of mosquitoes
must feed on an infectious host to
ensure that some of them are still


around after the portion of the
virus' incubation cycle that
occurs outside of a host (about
two weeks, depending on temper-
ature) to feed again on another
bird host. Over 70 species of birds
have tested positive for West Nile
virus in the northeastern states
where the virus first turned up in
North Amenca in 1999.
People. horses and most
other mammals are not known to
develop infectious-level viral dis-
ease very often, and thus are
probably 'dead-end' or 'incidental'
hosts," Wallace said.
: So far., 20 birds have tested
positive for West Nile virus' in
Florida, all of them in Okaloosa,
Washington, Leon. Jefferson.
Madison. Duval and Taylor coun-
ties. Half of them were in
Jefferson County.
West Nile virus can cause
encephalitis (inflammation of the.
brain), and it can also cause seri-
ous disease or even death in hors-
es, but people can protect them-
selves by taking a few simple pre-
cautions. For instance:
Stay indoors dunng hours of
peak mosquito activity. If you are
going to be outdoors during those
times, use mosquito repellent
with DEET (30 percent or less is
strong enough).
Eliminate mosquito breeding
habitat around your'home, such
as stagnant water in bird baths.

buckets or tires.
Report dead birds to your
county health department or to
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. You
can log dead bird discoveries at
FWC's Web site:
http://wld.fwc.state.fl.us/bird/
Fewer than one percent of all
mosquitoes are infected, and
fewer than one percent of all peo-
ple bitten by infected mosquitoes
develop the disease. Even fewer
develop serious illness. People
over age 50 are at greatest risk.
In areas where the virus has
been found, it occurs in a very
small percentage of the birds. Of
those that do carry the virus,
many are dead-end hosts that
have no role in spreading the'
virus. Killing a few birds will do
virtually nothing to stop the virus.
The odds of killing birds that
actually have infectious West Nile
virus are extremely small.
Furthermore. it's against the law.
All migratory birds .except intro-
duced species such as starlings
and house sparrows are protected
under the Migratory Bird Treaty
Act. ..
West Nile virus is not known
to affect white-tailed! deer. Most
mammals are also protected by
state law.
In combating arboviruses like
West Nile virus, it's much easier
to control the vectors (the mosqui-
toes) than the hosts (the birds).
The most effective method of con-
trolling the spread of the virus is
mosquito control targeted at spe-
cific areas where the virus has
been detected. The Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and county
"and regional mosquito control
boards are in charge of those
efforts.

"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are cre-

by their Creator with certain
unalienable rights, that among

these ;rights,. governments are

instituted among men, deriving
their just powers from the con-

Thus begins the second para-
graph of the Declaration of
Independence. Our Founding
Fathers understood that there is a
Creator, that our liberties are a
gift from Him, and that jthe gov-
ernment's role is to secure these
liberties for its citizens. Among
these liberties are free;, speech,
freedom to worship, and the right
to bear arms. Yet today, our gov-
ernment is not only not securing
these rights for us, they are mak-

from us.

First Amendment actually guar-

There is a continual attempt

away our right as an individual to

The government is exercising
powers they Constitutionally

However, that's not the govern-

that governments long estab-

light and transient causes." We've
allowed the foundational princi-
ples of our nation to be changed
by a government that has no
desire to secure our rights. We
have the right to stop this trans-
gression, because the Declaration
of Independence also says, 'That
whenever any form of government
becomes destructive to these
ends, it is the right of the people
to alter or abolish it, and to insti-

It is not time for hostile mili-
tary-style action, but it is time for
"the people" to demand that our
senators, congressmen, and even
the President return this nation
to its fundamental principles or to
remove them from office. -
The Founding Fathers knew
that God the Creator was the cor-
nerstone of our nation's fourtda-
tion. Thomas Jefferson role.
"Can the liberties of a nation be
secure when we have removed a
conviction that these liberties are
a gift of God'?" That s why the gov-
ernment wants to remove prayer,
crosses, the Ten Commandments,
and the Nativity from public life.
By removing them they 'are
removing the conviction that' we
need to come to (the realization
that if we don't return to .the
Creator and His principles, this
nation will continue down the
present. course to a more authon-
tarian government and ultimately
to the demise of America-Orie
nation, under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.

Disaster Assistance Program


Producers of crops that are
.not yet insurable under the
Federal Crop Insuirance Program
have had, to rely on the
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program, or NAP.
Unfortunately. NAP has too often
denied much needed crop loss
assistance to producers because
the area in which the producer
farms did not suffer sufficient
loss to tngger a payment.

The new crop insurance law
corrects this flaw in the NAP pro-
gram by eliminating altogether,
the "area loss" requirement so
producers may receive crop loss
assistance based solely upon a
producer's individual loss.
NAP provides producers of
crops that are not now insurable
with the same protection as cata-
strophic risk protection (CAT)-50
percent yield coverage at 55 per-
cent of price election-for a fee of
$100 per crop per county or S300
per producer per county, but not
to exceed $900 per producer. Fees
will be waived for limited resource
farmers with less than S20 000
income per household for each of


the prior two years.
For 2001 crop only, you may
report your uninsurable crop
acreage (late filed acreage report
will be accepted with a late filed
fee), purchase coverage and file a
notice of loss all at the same time.
2001 coverage will be accepted
until 30 days after the pnnting of
the Federal Regulations. Your
crops will not be, covered until
payment is received.
Once coverage is acquired the
producer must notify the county
office of loss within 15' days after
the loss became apparent.
Damaged crops ,must not be
destroyed until after appraisal is
done by a loss adjuster and
released. The payment limitation
is $100.000 per producer, per
year. Crops harvested must have
a form of vernfiable production
records, receipts with name,
address and phone number. oria
field visit may be requested to ver-
ify production with a $10 fee.
Please contact the Farm
Service Agency at 17413 NW
Leonard St., Blountstown, to pur-
chase and/or 'receive additional
information on the new NAP 'cov-
erage.

Tips on How to Germinate Palm Trees


Soon, many of you will be
planning ornamental additions to
your landscapes. Producing
palms from seeds is a challenge
many of you may consider. The


seeds of most Florida palms ripen
in late July and early August.
That's when they're ready for har-
vesting and germination. Now's a
good time to talk about the kinds


of seeds to look for, and how to get
them started.
The key factor in successful
palm seed germination is planting
really fresh seeds. Palm seeds are

relatively short-lived. Their viabil-
ity decreases in only two or three
weeks. I will offer some tips on
how to tell when palms seeds are
at their peak of freshness, and
how to germinate them. My infor-
mation was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulturalist
Dr. Robert J. Black with the IFAS
of the University of Florida.
When gathering palms seeds,
do not pick up those that have
fallen to the ground. By the time
the seeds drop, their viability is
greatly reduced. Usually, you can
recognize old palm seeds by their
color. They're darker than fresh
ones. Seeds contain a material
called endosperm, which darkens
with age. You can see this change
through the thin seed covering.
This makes it easy to tell fresh
seeds from old.
After you obtain fresh seeds,
it is not a good idea to store them
for any length of time. Extended
storage increases the time
required for the seeds to germi-
nate, and limits the number of
seedlings produced. If you think
exposing palm seeds to hot, dry
conditions will help make it easier
to remove the seed's coats, you're
wrong. Such exposure causes
rapid embryo shrinkage. The
greater the shrinkage, the slower
the germination. Soaking shrunk-
en seeds in water before,- planting
helps, but they'll never regain
their fresh quality. Even if the old
seeds do germinate, the seedlings
they produce will usually lack the
vigor. of those grown from fresh
seeds.
Before the seeds are planted,
the fresh pulp should be removed.
Besides aiding germination, this
will lessen the chance of fungus
infection. Also, before planting,

Extension Notes

Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


carefully examine the seeds for
insects. Weevils can attack many
palm species, even before the
seeds mature.
Palm seeds can germinate in
flats containing a mixture of one-
third peat, one-third vermiculite
(ver-MIK-you-LIGHT), and one-
third sand. Some species germi-
nate well in'plastic bags filled with
sphagnum moss: However, if you
use this method, the seedlings
must be removed as soon as pos-
sible after germination. Carefully
remove them with tweezers, and
put them in containers of growing
media.
Palms seedlings grow, down-
ward quickly, and ,can, be dam-
aged as they strike the bottom of
a shallow container. So, you
should transplant the seedlings
from their germinating flats as
soon as possible. .With proper
care, palms can be: transplanted
at almost anytime.
Palm seeds also can be germi-
nated, in ground beds, as long as
some bottom heat is supplied.
Otherwise, germination will be
extremely slow. Temperatures of
85 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit are
considered best. Heating .cables
may be used to raise the seedbed
temperature to the proper level.
Placing a sheet of plastic over the
bed will help retain heat and soil
moisture.
Palms make attractive orna-

Department of Children
and Families Moves
Closer to Accreditation
The Department of Children
and Families, Office of Mission,
Support and Performance, recent-
S'ly released an invitation to negoti-
ate (ITN) to identify a national
accreditation consortium and/or
lead, accreditor. Once identified,
the consortium/accreditor will aid
in the department's effort to
receive national recognition as a
quality service organization.
Accreditation will be, for all
programs and services offered by
the department on a statewide
basis. It is determined by a group
of social services professionals
who objectively determine that the
department is operating within
the highest professional stan-
dards and national best practices.
Contract execution is expect-
ed to take place by December
2001.
Kathleen A. Kearney, secre-
tary of the department, looks for-
ward to the process taking shape.
"The opportunity' for us to con-
duct a detailed self-study, using
the accreditor secured through.
this process, will lead to
improved, standardized and
streamlined procedures and prac-
tices throughout the department,"
she said.
In addition, national recogni-
tion as an accredited agency will
allow the department .to further
pursue system reforms and
improve current practices.
Accreditation serves as an assur-
ance to the public, and to private
funding sources, that the depart-
ment provides quality services to
the people we serve.

Investment View: Don't Overlook the Importance of Asset Allocation


By: Andy Wilkinson
During the most recent period
'of strong stock performance many
.investors over-weighted stocks to
'take advantage of their outstand-
ing returns. Risk seemed minimal
-as people watched their accounts
'grow. In essence, bonds and their
'limited returns were forgotten.
Then the sudden economic tur-
moil and stock market downturn
created the opposite effect as
many investors ran for the cover


Sof fixed income investments and
abandoned equities.
In recent years, asset alloca-
tion-or the division of assets
between stocks, bonds, and
cash-has been over-influenced by
market extremes, making this an
ideal time for a closer look at how
the right allocation can help
investors meet their financial
goals.;

are up, bond yields are down, and
as inflation soars, the dollar loses
value. This relationship helps
explain why some investors tend
to limit their focus to the one rhar-
ket that's performing better at the
present time. And as markets
shift, investors adjust. But for
those who wish to avoid huge
fluctuations, it is important to
keep assets balanced. When
assets are diversified, something
should always be working for you.
Finding the right balance (or
weighting) of assets for your port-
folio can help safeguard your sav-
ings from market volatility.
Adjust for Your Financial
Situation
Beyond more stability, a bal-
anced portfolio also helps
investors focus on meeting their
financial needs and objectives. To
better evaluate your allocation,
consider current holdings,

expected expenses, and your time
horizon before retirement. Also
take a look at employment securi-
ty, tax implications, the value
(and risk) of any stock options,
and your risk tolerance. A finan-
cial advisor, working with. your
tax advisor, can help you develop
a plan based on these variables.
Cover All Bases
As mentioned before, the
proper asset allocation will ,help
investors make the most of the
'market while also meeting their
financial goals. To decide how
much of a portfolio belongs in
each category, carefully review
your expenses. .
Plan cash first. It's important
to maintain enough cash tW cover
emergencies that could last three
months or more. Money market
accounts and Certificates of
Deposit (CDs) are both good
short-termn options for this sav-

To plan for major expenses
that are a few years down the
road,, consider 'fixed income
options. Combinations of T-bills,
.corporate bonds, and municipal
bonds can be selected with vary-
ing benefits and maturity dates
that could make the funds avail-
able for upcoming home purchas-
es and college tuition bills. If this
,savings is invested entirely, in
' stocks, you might be forced to sell
when the market is down.
Invest in equities for long-
term savings. Though stocks tra-
ditionally provide the strongest
returns of all asset categories,

they also have'the most volatility.
With a long-term horizon, you will
have the freedom to sell stocks
that have reached their perfor-
mance expectations and hold onto
those that still have the potential
to climb.
This advice may sound famil-
iar, but for investors who allowed
their portfolios to shift almost
exclusively into stocks or fixed
incoine investments, it demands a
new order of priority and level
attention. Research has shown


that asset allocation may be the
most important decision an
investor can make. To learn more
about how the proper asset allo-
cation can help you achieve your
financial goals, contact your
financial advisor.
