At-Large Voting-Voters Choice



Could Cost Over $1 Million to Challenge Court Judgement


Gulf County commissioners
decided to put the at-large voting
question back before the voters
during their regular meeting
Tuesday evening.
Commissioner Jerry Barnes
brought the matter. before the
board :explaining that 80% of vot-
ers had passed a referendum' sev-
eral years ago calling for a return
to county wide voting. Now that
the county has a good handle on
how much the legal effort would
cost Barnes moved for the vot-
ers/taxpayers to make the deci-
sion on whether to proceed.
The county has retained
lawyers specializing in this field to'
give a legal opinion: on the suit's
possibilities and a cost estimate
to challenge single member dis-
tricts.
According to county attorney,
Tim McFarland, these lawyers
have given a favorable view of the


county's case, but if the suit is
challenged heavily it could be an
expensive process. Estimates
range between $750,000 to $1.4
million if the case were to evolve
into a drawn out court battle.
McFarland pointed out that
the expense would likely be
spread over a period ot several
budget years if the case strung
out.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
seconded the motion by Barnes
stating. "I agree, this is a lot of
money and it should be up to the
public." The board passed the
motion 5-0 which will place the
question on the ballot dunng
upcoming county' elections.
Gull" Count. went to single
member district representation in
1986 following a suit filed by cur-
rent commissioner Nathan Peters
Jr. The suit never went to court
because both the school board


and county agreed to a consent
judgement initiating single mem-
ber districts.
Peters has objected to all
efforts made to return to at-large
voting.


Lake Alice Test Clean
County Health Director Doug
Kent gave the board good news
about the health of Lake Alice fol-
lowing testing of the lake's waters.
Suspicion was raised during


a board meeting several weeks

Guards' Dismissal Upheld


by PERC Hearing Officer


by Tim Croft
A hearing officer has recom-
mended that the state uphold the
dismissals of several former cor-
rectional 'officers at Gulf Correc-
ti6nal Institute
Jack Ruby recommended that
the appeals of Danid Guillot. Sgt.
Chnstopher Wood ani"Lt~ Car-
,men McLemore. who is also chair-
mnan of the Gulf County Commius-
sion, be dismissed.
The three were fired in April
by the Department of Corrections ,
in the wake of accusations that
they abused an inmate.
Ruby's recommendation will
be taken up by the Florida Public
Employees Relations Commission
for a final decision.
There is alsq a separate FBI
investigation ongoing.
In his findings 'of fact and.
conclusions, Ruby discounted the
most. serious charges lodged-
against McLemore and Wood by
former inmate William Webb.
Webb had accused McLemore
and Wood of handcuffing him to. a
tree, slapping him, punching him
and spraying him with an,
unknown chemical.
According to Webb the events
took place over a five-hour period
in the visitor's yard of the prison
forestry camp on the night of July
18, 2000.
Ruby wrote that several fac-
tors, including the presence ,of
security cameras overseeing the
yard, as well as other officers in
the vicinity of where the alleged
incident took place, make Webb's.


testimony about the beating
'incredible."
He added that the live-hour
time span was not consistent with
log books at the camp and that
when Maj. Samuel Smith. the
supervisor at the camp, sppke
with W\qbb the next day. Smith
detected no signs oT physical
i-auma as would be expected of
the events Webb described during ,
a hearing that took place earlier
this .month in Wewahitchka.
Ruby also noted' that a guard
,in the, control tower, who had a .
view of the tree and incident, saw
no physical abuse.
Therefore, Ruby wrote,
"Webb's testimony ithati he was
,slapped, punched, sprayed or
other wise mistreated ... is not
credited." .
Ruby also discounted Webb's
testimony about events' after the,
alleged beating, of being sprayed,
off with a diose by another guard
and allowed to change clothes due
to his being sprayed by a chemi-
cal.
"This case was'based entirely
on the inmate's statements and
we made it clear du nng the hear-
ing the he lied and lied again,"
said Robert Pell, the attorney for
Wood.
However, Ruby .said state-
ments and observations by other

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker Down With Kes by Kesley Colbert
COLUMN
WRITTEN BY K Tm...A Ohr
WILLIE RAMSEY, EDITOR I Killing Time.....And Each Other!


Two Special




People

As fate would have, I got the opportunity last Friday to personally
say thanks to two very special people as life and circumstances have led
them down a different path, State Representative Bev Kilmerand former
Gulf County Economic Development Director Karen Whaley:.
They dropped by Port St. Joe City Hall Friday as the representative
was making her way through the community saying thanks and pledg-
ing continued support to the area as her district takes on new bound-
aries outside Gull County. Whaley., on the other hand, was present to
extend her thanks and best wishes to Rep. Kilmer.
Bev Kilmer came on the scene in Gulf County just about the Lime
the mill was going down. In my opinion one of the best ways to measure
a person is by the size of her heart. Rep. Kilmer on several occasions
showed her heart for this community. She earned the torch all the way
back to Tallahassee and helped lead the way for new jobs, retrairung
programs and assistance for hundreds of laid-off workers.
More than once we talked about the plight of these men as they
faced a complete change in life as they' had known it.
S It's pretty easy to tell the difference between someone who is acting
out of desires to get a vote or one who has a-genuine heartfelt concern
for people. In Representative Kilfner's case the expressions on her face
and tears flowing down her cheeks obviously went way beyond a desire
for anyone's vote.
Her efforts reflected a sincere.concern for the needs of people, and
this community owes her a debt of gratitude for those efforts apd many
others during her time of service.
Karen Whaley is relatively new to Gulf County'. having come out of
retirement to serve as director of the EDC.
This move. in and of itself. says a lot about the calibre of person Mrs.
Whaley is. Having had the opportunity' to speak with several of the folks
she has worked with in setting up and expanding businesses in Gulfl
County. this point has been reiterated several times. Unsolicited testi-
moruals have been easy to come by. Nearly every member on the EDC
committee has emphatically stated how fortunate Gulf County has been
to have someone of Mrs. Whaley's experience and professionalism rep-
resenting us as director.
Mrs. Whaley gave a status report to Gulf County Commissioners a
few weeks ago. It was very obvious that she has been extremely busy
over the past year.
The Economic Development Committee and Mrs. Whaley have
worked extremely hard to lure good. paying jobs to this area. They have
met some success along the way. They have also been dealt more than
one blow of defeat. Several times we've made it to the short list on some
very good economic development projects.
Mrs. Whaley has been a vital part of those efforts and I would like to
take the opportunity to publicly state I, and a lot of others, appreciate
those efforts to make Gulf County a better place to live.


Made In America


I got this e-mail from Bill Kennedy which he has entitled "So
True"-
Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock
(MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 a.m.
While his coffeepot (NLMDE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved
% with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG).,He put on a dress
shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA). designer jeans (MANLDE IN SINGAPORE)
and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).
After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN
INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see
how much he could spend today. After setting his watch IMADE IN
TAIWAN-l) to the radio (IL-DE IN INDLA) he got m his car IMkLDE IN
GERMANVl and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN
JOB. At the end of yet another discouraging and Iruitless day. Joe
decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MALDE IN
BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of wine (MLADE IN FRANCE) and
turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA). and then wondered why
he can't find a good paying job in......AMERICA.....


I think it all started with
Bobby Joe Waldrop bouncing
across the corn field astride his
daddy's old Allis Chalmers. It was
a model WD -45. Bright orange.
And Bobby Joe would put that


tractor in high gear. lay open the
gas handle and 'let that thing eat"
over hill and dale!
It was a clear and beckoning
challenge to the rest of us.
None of us were old enough to
dnrve- :'ars! But we had all been
farming since back before your
aunt Nattie was a pup. We might
not be tall enough to reach the gas
handle and the clutch at the same
time but with a little scooting down
to hit the floor pedals and a -little
raising up..to push the gas, we


managed!
There were more than a few
tractors around.
Ricky Gene had access to Mr.
Purxis's Ford 8N. Most all the
Fords were gray back then. And it
had those wide front wheels. It
wasn't, as tall as the Allis Chalmers
but I believe it had a few more
horse power.
Yogi Brewer had an ancient
Avery. It was an old model V. The
red color had faded to a semi-light
orange. Yog had the oldest vehicle


in the bunch but what he lacked in
equipment he made up in guts.
\\'e had been racing these trac-
tors kinda informally for years.
You'd catch Ricky Gene or Yogi
coming back from town and listen,
I'd ram the gas handle on our old
Farmall plum past wide open. If 1
could catch him before the road
narrowed down near the Frog
Jump cut off, I'd blow 'em off the
road!
But we usually kept the trac-
tors pretty much on the farm and
the opportunities to "pass"
were few and far between;
We did most of our "racing" up
on the front porch of Wood row
Kennoh's store. "The only reason
you got by me yesterday was
because I didn't see you.' Ricky
Gene was not going to concede
that I had passed him in a fair
race.
"Shoot, don't tell me. you
couldn't hear my war wagon com-
ingl" I scoffed at such a larrie
excuse.,
Hollis Mayo looked up momen-
tarily from pouring peanuts into
his NuGrape, "If I d been out that
way I'd a'showed you both some-
thing."I" .
"Yeah," Squeaky Ridinger
piped in,. "you would have ugly-ed
them both off the road!"
The front porch shook with.
laughter. Hollis's dad owned an
Oliver. It was an old 1949 -77 Row
Crop" model. It was green with' a
putrid yellow front grill and two big
"up top" smoke stacks. To say that
it was rather unattractive would be
the understatement of the century!
Hollis laughed along with the
rest of us, and tried to save face,
'"Boys.' you run with me and you
won't have to worry' about the color
of my grill-you ain't never going to
see it!"
"I could 'out run that Oliver in
second gear." Bobby Joe did have a
fast tractor.
Hollis gulped down a big'swal-
low of his mix and replied, 'You
want to see if you can?".
There-' was a' moment 7 of
silence. Everyone was studying on
who actually, had the fastest trac-
tor. I figured Bobby Joe's Allis
Chalmers would be too much for
Hollis but I'd never really seen the
Oliver wide open.
Bobby Joe was standing up,
"Let's go." There wa\'n't much back
up in any of those Waldrop boys.
"Why can't wI all run?" ; I
couldn't believe Yogi said that. He
had the worst tractor by far!
"I. say we all race." Squeaky
was also getting up.
"Squeak, you don't even have
a tractor!" .
"Uncle Archie has got one.,
W\1here are we"going to race?"
I tell you, .boredom,, and the
lack of good sense, was the inven-
tion of a lot of our best ideas!
We laid us out: a track down
'back of Steadman Ridge where the
water fall had cut a ditch across
the sfrill valley on the back edge
of Mr. Dvwayne Melton's hog farm.
It was about as remote a place as
(See KESLEY ON PAGE 3)


You Nee
DID YOU EVER GET some
unexpected benefit out of some-'
thing which was, instead, expect-.
ed to cost you?
That happened to me last
week.
I got a gift out of a night out,
with the girls my wife took. I was
supposed to go. too. but the other
man who was supposed to go can-
celled at the last moment. Seems
as if he had a pallet of grass being
delivered and he had to be home
when it came. ,.
Likely story....
I'll have to remember that one
for: future use.'lI know it'll "fly"
because Frenchie will spare no.
expense when it comes to some-.
thing for the yard.
That excuse. will work- just
fine, when I have to ue Jt, some-
day.,
But, a good excuse isn't all I'
got to my benefit on Frenchle's
night out with the girls.

I GOT AN EXTRA bonus gift,
* also.


d a Porci


Frenchie went out to dinner
with three other women, and they
went to Apalachicola. That's .a
heck of a long way to 'go just to eat
dinner, but I didn't say an-ything.
I let them go and just curled
up with my television program to
while the time away while I was by
myself.
I didn't waht to miss my base-
ball game, anyhow.
Byt the way, the BraveY won,
that night. -
But, back to my story.
When Frenchie got home
about 9-00, she brought me a
sack filled with goodies.
There was fried shrimp in
that sack, plus a book written by

! Swinging


OF THOSE WHO had& front
porches, only two had a. chair on
their front porch for sitting in.
The chairs looked as if they had
never been sat in.
None-not, even mine--had a
,porch swing in evidence.
Sitting-and swinging-in the.
front porch swing use to be a
pleasant pastime. Lewis remem-.
bered sitting on the front porch,
before television, shelling peas
and. butterbeans and. watching
the neighbors stroll by.
Every once in'a while, some of
my neighbors will stroll by, or
walk fast, getting their exercise,
and it brings back memories of
the days when' we use to go visit-
ing, sitting on someone's porch to
talk.
I remember, especially, we
use to walk down the dirt street in
front of our home, and wind up on
the front porch of our favorite
neighbor, the Underwoods and
stop and listen to Edgar Bergen
and Charley McCarthy 'on the


radio.
Those were the days.
The Underwoods were an
Indian family who. lived a block
down the* street from us. Mr.
Underwood was one of the fewy
men who had a job during thhe
mid-thirties. He worked in the oil
field.

I THINK I'LL USE my leisure
hours, trying to revive the activity
of sitting on the froht porch in la
rocking chair or a porch, swing.
It's really enjoyable. .
I don't have a swing on nriy
front porch to sit. in, but I have a
porch swing in my back yard on
.the patio. "
Come to think of -it, I don't
believe it has ever been broken in,
either. That's something I can do
to pass the time.

public education, rising property
values can be a mixed blessing.
Just ask, the Gulf County
School Board.
Where it has control, the
School Board proposes to reduce
village rates below what would be
required to maintain the current
level of fiundinig.
But 'where Tallahassee and
state lawmakers hold' the purse
strings, and that is the major por-
tion of any district's budget, the
-board will still, be able to reduce
village rates, but not enough to
avoid a tax hike for property. own-
ers.
This against a backdrop of
the county jumping past the $1
billion mark in assessed property
value this year. ,
Under the formula the state
uses to fund schools, it sets forth
the amount of money coming
.from Tallahassee to each district

We were going to do this thing
late Saturday 'afternoon. We- all

I eased our Farmall out- of the

Steadman Ridge. I saw the people
before I' dropped down the last
:road on'the Melton Farm. Maudie
Mallard was ,directing the contes-
tants to the starting line. I. think
Ronnie Russell and Anne
Alexander' were passing, through
the crowd taking bets on who was
going to win.. LaRenda Bradfield
and Graylene Lemonds were fight-
intg over who was going to be the
official starter.
Every kid in school was. out
here! What happened, to our secret
'pact? .
Two thoughts.rushed to mind
as LaRenda and. Graylene jointly
dropped the green flag. There were
so many people here my Dad was
bound to find out about this. And
the main problem with a Farmall

and what the local school board
must earn for its coffers, in edu-
cation parlance called local effort
funding.
So to receive the state's share
of the county's K-12 budget the
local effort must meet dictates
coming from on high in Tallahas-
see.
To reach that level the dis-
trict, therefore, will be able to,
bring down millage rates, but not
to the rollback rate that would
maintain current funding.
"If we don't do (what the state
tells us to do) we don't get state
money to run our schools," said
Sissy Worley, financial officer for
the, district.
'They are requiring us to go
over the rollback rate."
Last year, the local effort mill-
age rate was 5.449. "
One mill represents $1 .per
$1,000 of assessed property
value.
The rollback rate, that needed
to bring in the same amount, of

I saw Hollis hit Squeaky's bor-
rowed John Deere and send it fly-
ing into Sugar Creek. I made the
first lap o.k. and was turning back
toward the ditch about two car
lengths behind Bobby Joe when I
saw the pigs. I think the noise or
the crowd, or both, must'a,
spooked them. ,1I could dodge the
way out hogs, but with my steer-
ing linkage, I couldn't avoid the up
close one! .
I hit a pig, turned into Ridky
Gene trying to mis another' shoat,

rear tire off:the rim and catapulted
with that Farmall end over' ,end
into the big ditch! It took five min-
utes for the dust to settle, the pigs,
to quit squealing, the curious to
gather and for me to check for bro-
ken bones and bleeding areas,. .
I was pondering on just exact-.
ly what all my Dad was.going to do
to me when Bobby; Joe stuck his
head over the edge of the cliff I'd
just flown off of. "Don't worry, Kes,

money as the previous year at the
higher value of a mill, would be
4.8141.
However, the state is requir-
ing the district millage rate for
local effort funding to be 5.264.
Bol1h' to the bottom line, the
state is saying that the district's
local effort must be 58 percent of
the total local/state budget, up
from 51 percent last year and far
above the statewide district aver-,
age of 42 percent local effort fund-
ing.
Board member Dr. Mary Prid-,
geon noted that when she was
first elected to the board eight
years ago, local effort funding
amounted to just 42 percent of
the K-12 budget.
"We have to raise more locally
and get'less from the state," said
superintendent Jerry Kelley,
adding that the state now appar-
ently considers Gulf County a
"wealthy county." '
And therefore the school dis-
trict will effectively have to raise
taxes by 9.35 percent, the dil'er-
ence between the rollback rate, or
current level of funding,, and that
required by the state for this year.
"We, need to make the public
aware that the state requires
this," said board member Billy
Quinn Jr.
As Worley illustrated, if a res-
ident's property does not rise in
value, they will pay less taxes for
schools.
However, if the value of their
property rises, they .will be .pay
more in taxes for schools.
On the lip side,' in'the area
discretionary funding the board
must raise for items such as oper-,
ating expenses, salaries, benefit-,
and capital outlay, the numbers
will go down.
S* The board proposes, to reduce
discretionary, .millage to 1.611,
below the 1.6636 rollback 'rate
based ion .last: year's millage. of
1.833. : ,
It.is worth noting that the dis-'
trict's total rmllage rate of 6.8750
is the third lowest among the
state's 67 school districts.
The district's proposed bud-
get calls for 3 percent less spend-
ing than last year. due primanly

Don't Be Like Mike Hosts Worshop

Sometimes children can't
resist the urge to imitate what
they see in a movie in an effort to
be like the star. However, doing so
may be very dangerous in "real
life." 20th Century Fox's new
summer kids' movie "Like Mike,"
released: this: month, depicts a
youth climbing a tree, grabbing
shoes off a power line and being
struck by lightning. giving him
-new-found NBA-quality super
powers. "Like Mike" is rated PG,
which cautions parents that some,
material may not be suitable, for
children. : '.
"In-' real' life this type of
behavior is extremely, dangerous
and can be fatal," says Michael
White, Manager of Marketing and
Member Services of .Gulf Coast

encourage parents to.- discuss
electrical power -line, safety with
their children.
"In reality, contact with power
lines is. extremely dangerous."
White said. "Gulf Coast Electnc
Cooperative .has a year-round
approach to electrical safety, and
works-very hard to teach children
of the potential danger involved
with power lines."
GCEC's efforts to educate the
public and school children
include special safety pre-
sentations. "All of our efforts to
educate children of the. dangers of
power lines are useless if children,
think they'll obtain 'super powers'
from contact with power lines,",
White added. "We urge parents to
reinforce electncal safety habits
through family discussionss"
The Cooperative recommends
the following tips .for staying. safe
near power equipment: Assume
all lines are energized and
carrying electricity. Never climb a
: power pole or other electrical
equipment. Look up and stay
aware of the location of overhead
power lines to, avoid, making
contact with them. Check trees for
overhead wires running near or-
through limbs and branches

Appreciates Local
Medical Services
Recently, I had surgery at one
of the same day surgery clinics in
Panama City.. Barely out of
anesthesia, the nurse gave me a
list of instructions, which
incl uded a prescription for,
physical therapy three times; a
week at a clinic in Panama City.4
My first appointment was the
following day. Fortunately I asked
if I could receive therapy -nearer
my home. I knew that there was a
clinic in Port St. Joe. but was
unaware that they also ran a-
clinic in Wewahitchka. My'
appointment was changed 'to,
Wewa and by the following day
when Lchecked in, my record had
been faxed and they were ready
for mie..-. .'. .
.The bottom line is that it is
important to request local services
whenever possible and to support
these therapists. They receive the
same training as those in Panama
City and in some cases are not as
rushed.

Project Mold-A-Male/Female Youth Conference


U,


by Tim Croft
A visit to a Gulf County
prison camp some 13 years ago
turned out to be a life-changing
experience for Chester and Max-
ine Gant.
They have worked tirelessly
ever since to effect a positive
change in the lives of young men
and women in the community.
Their Project Mold-A-
Male/Female will hold its annual
Youth Conference About Commu-
nity Concerns .this week, the
three-day event culminating in a
commemorative ceremony for the
late Clifford Chester Sims.-
Sims, a Port: St. Joe native,
was posthumously awarded the
Congressional Medal of Honor in
1960's for saving his platoon by
falling on .a live grenade, in the
jungles of Vietnam.
Commemorating Sims, arid
what he stood for with his
actions, fits perfectly into the
themes of this year's Youth Con-
ference, which are citizenship and
patriotism.
Project Mold-A-Male/Female
started when the Gants were,
doing some social work at the,


county prison camp near Howard'
Creek in 1989.
The inmate population was
overwhelmingly African-Ameri-
can.
"There were a large number of
black men in the prison," said,
Chester Gant. "It brought me to
tears."
He noticed that while behind
bars, the young men dressed well,
prison uniforms, of course, spoke
- well and did much of the work at
the camp, such as painting,
groundskeeping, etc.-
They also lifted the rafters
while singing in the choir.
"I wondered why can't they do
this on the outside." Chester Gant
said, to which his wife replied,
"And the same question remains."
But the Gants decided, as
Chester put it. "there had to be
something we could do about it."
"If we can reach them here."
Maxine Gant said ,"we don't have
to reach them at prison. The pro-
gram is strictly preventative.
"It is a preventaLive program
for at-risk young people. And we
deem every young person in Gulf
County to be at-risk."


While the project began as a
tool in the fight against delin-
quency and teen pregnancy, it
has evolved over the years.
"It has adjusted its need over
the years," said Hubert Six, a
social worker with, the, school
system working through the
county Health Department.
"Over the years it has dealt
with such issues as HIV and
social issues. Today it more
relates to the young' men arid.
young women, taking a positive'
direction of teaching good citizen-
ship.
'The Gants, they are really
the heroes. They took some core-
values and it has branched out i-n
other directions "
Once an all-male program it
has, expanded to include young
women.
Oriainanlly. a program for ages
13-17. it is now open to young-
sters seven to. 17.,
"We were missing the kid's,"
Maxine Gant said. "By the time
they are 13 (behavior is fairly v.ell,
entrenched)."
And those core values, or
components, that Six spoke of


center around the civic/social,
spiritual and creative.,
"We consider these to be the
core skills for success," Maxine
Gant said'.
"We teach, them indepen-
dence, being self-sufficient and
always working toward that goal."
Each year the annual Youth
Conference weaves those core val-
ues through a program focused
on a particular topic.
Featured speakers address
general and group .session and
. experts in various fields are
brought in to facilitate workshop
sessions.
"(The conferences) are impor-
tant." said 17-year-old Tristan
Wilhams who has been attending
the annual conference since he
was 12.
"We have furi. We learn :a lot
of stuff. There are people whoa
come in and talk to the kids about
how to be successful arid how
they rose to the top."
Arriving at a central topic for
this \ear's program was not diffi-
'cult.
"We chose citizenship and

patriotism because of the world
situation," Maxine Gant said.
"It's always relevant to some-
thing."
And the conference consis-
tently attracts a good turnout.
There have been some lean
years, but the Gants'expect about
100 youngsters to show up for all
or part of the three-day event, the
first session of which is 6-11 p.m.
Thursday at the David Jones
Recreational Center;
"We get new kids'every year,"
Williams said. "There are a lot.
who participate. First, they 'don't
have much else to do, but they'll
have fun and learn some things."
It is an effort purely of the
heart where the Gants are con-
cerned;
"This is a round-the-clock
effort for us," Chester Gant said.,
Nlamxie Gant added, "You
have to go at it from the heart, It
requires you going that extra
mile."
And in that extra mile, there
is the opportunity to .impact at
least ione young life, 'such as
Williams', and that is all the dif-
ference. .
"Ithink (that it has made an
. impact)." Six said: "My opinion is
that they at least know they have
some choices and that's hea\y."
Thursday night's program
includes an interactive group ses-
sion led by The Love Center Youth
Group of Apalachicola ollolved by\
a pizza party.
Fnda.v's sessions begin with a

guards as well as the comments
of McLemore and Wood that came

that Webb had been verbally

jumping. off point for McLemore
and Wood to taunt Webb.
According to testimony at the
hearing, several officers noticed
Webb at the tree and considered it
unusual.
McLemore and Wood had
come to the control room to verify
Webb's release date and retrieve
his file, which was readily avail-
able due to his pending transfer
to the county's main facility.
After the incident, Wood and
McLemore were overheard laugh-
^ ing and joking about making "the
big man cry" and that Webb, who
was 6-foot-1 and roughly 250
pounds at the time, almost wet
himself.
A guard in Webb's dormitory
testified of the inmate's emotional
state, after the incident and Guiil-
lot, who was in, the control room
with another officer at the time of
the incident, had-also been over-
heard talking about how Webb's
presence at the tree was not ordi-
nary.
'Therefore although neither
Wood or McLemore engaged in
striking, hitting, slapping or
spraying Webb with some kind of
chemical spray their treatment of
Webb constitutes cause- for. disci-
plinary action ..." Ruby wrote. :
Wood. and McLemore, Ruby
wrote, failed to maintain the secu-
rity and welfare of an inmate,.
inflicted cruel cand inhumane
treatment, inappropriately used
force .and failed to report the use
of force (handcuffing Webb to the
tree while taunting him) and,
physically and verbally abused an
inmate.
Ruby wrote that, "the testi-
mony of Wood and McLemore
indicated that the tree incident
involving Webb was a source of.
urnmor'for them, especially con-


-From Page 1

sidering the fact that it involved
significant embarrassment to
Webb.
"Wood's comments concern-
ing his observations that the 'big
man was crying' or 'about to pee
his pants' indicate cruelty with no
legitimate purpose."
Ruby continued later in his
opinion, 'The conduct here was
obviously an attempt to harass
and embarrass an inmate as a
means of punishing him for the
contraband in a manner not pro-
vided by (the DOC) but for the'
' desire of Wood and McLemore of
some perverse pleasure."
Ruby added that, "this mis-
conduct is a failure by two super-
visory correctional officers to fol-
low (Department of Corrections)
rules prohibiting such mistreat-
ment and encouraging the
humane treatment of inmates in
their custody, as well as conduct
unbecoming a public employee."
Therefore, Ruby wrote, the
DOC acted appropriately by dis-
missing the two .officers.
Guillot's problems, Ruby
wrote, stemmed from a failure to
be truthful regarding his knowl-
edge of the incident, even after
being notified by another guard
that his testimony to an investiga-
tor from the state Inspector Gen-
eral's office was inconsistent with
other's testimony. ,
While Guillot's involvement in
the incident was limited, Ruby
wrote, the DOC "is entitled to
have its personnel, who are sworn
law enforcement officers, tell the
complete truth in sworn investi-
gations of alleged wrongdoir g."
Guillot's firing; Ruby wrote,
was within the,'DOC guidelines
and appropriate.
Pell called Ruby's conclusions
a "rogue decision."'
"In all my years of practicing
law it is the most outrageous rul-
ing I've everseen," Pell continued.
"In my opinion, if I tried this
case 500 times in front of a jury, I
would .never lose., If I tried it 500
times: in front of a judge, I would
never lose.
"It's just outrageous."
, Pell said that he would likely'
encourage his client to appeal,
which Wood, McLemore and Guil-.
lot can do within a specified time
frame." .
McLemore said he wasl not ,


sure what course he would take.
"I know the cards were
stacked against me going into this
hearing because I knew (the DOC)
didn't have the evidence to fire us
to begin with," he said. 'The bad
thing is they came after me and
took two more officers down with
me. I really thought that the hear-
ing officer would do the right
thing and rule in our favor.
"This proves to me that the
system is corrupt. I stood up and
gave it my best shot. Who knows,
I may get them on a level playing
field one day.
"This whole episode has been
devastating for both me and my
wife 'Peggy. I didn't do, what this
inmate has accused me of and. I
proved it during the hearing with-
out any doubt.
"Where am I now? I don't
know. I spent my 'life savings
fighting this. I don't have .any
more money to fight with."
Guillot nor his attorney could
be reached for comment.

WindMark Beach held an official launch last Thursday evening, inviting members of the community
and property owners to tour the recently completed sales center. Those in attendance enjoyed delicious
hors d'oeuvres while trying to find a semblance of cool in the oppressive heat which has blanketed the
area during the past week. John Hendry, project director, extended thanks to the many people who have
been instrumental in launching the development. "Most of the people involved in the project at this time
have come from Gulf County and live in Gulf County," he especially noted.

Just as many people do not
seek help for a cavity until they
experience severe toothache, the
same is often true for jaw prob-
lems.
They will ignore discomfort,
aches, clicking and popping in
the joints, and only visit the den-
tist as a last resort, when the
pain is insupportable and the jaw
muscles are in spasm.
There are a number of
means by which the dentist can

relief.
Once the patient is more com-
fortable, the dentist may take study
models of the mouth. For addition-
al relief, he may make an appliance
of special acrylic. It is called an
NTI-SS bite guard.
Its purpose is to disengage the
lower cusps from the upper cusps
and allow your jaw to close as a
simple hinge. By freeing jaw motion
from cusp guidance, the joint has a
chance to function in its most nat-
ural position and thus begin to
heal.

We Sell Seashells By The


Seashore (for a great cause!)


Eric Estling of Gainesville and Lacey Moore of Alberta, Canada,
donated more than $23 to the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society this:
year, money raised by selling shell-decorated items ,to family mem-
bers.


by Tim Crofti
The boundaries for animal
lovers, it turns. :out, are fairly
boundless.
Carolyn Lee of the St. Joseph
Bay Humane Society can attest to
it. '
Each year for the past three
years, she has received donations
from a,couple of youngsters she
has never met.
They not only are not from
Gulf County, one of them isn't'
even from this country.
Eric Estling of Gainesville and
Lacey Moore of Canada have par-
layed a fondness for animals, an
affinity for craftsmanship and
mixed them together to extend a
hand to homeless creatures of the
four-legged species..
"I justt love animals," said,
Estling, who numbers two cats
and four birds amonghis family's
menagerie.
SEstling and Moore are. 12-
year-old cousins who join,.20-30--
other family members for an
annual reunioni/vacation to soak
. up the rays and revel in the surf

on Cape San Bias.
For Moore and Estling, that
vacation- time has evolved into
something of a fundraiser for the
St. Joseph Bay Humane Society.
About six or so years, ago,
Moore said, she and Estling start-
ed collecting shells on the beach.
They'd use the shells to deco-r
rate items such as picture frames,
d n Itcood. candle holders and the
like.'
These homemade bric-a-


give them some of the money,"
Estling said.
It was a natural extension of a
fondness for animals both exhibit
back home.
"My friend and I are volun-
teers at the Humane Society,"
Moore said. Her family's brood
includes a horse, two dogs and
three birds.
"There are not a lot of people
willing to go across town to volun-
teer at the Humane Society."
Estling, whose two cats both
came from the pound, said, "I try'
to help out whenever I can with
the Humane Soceity."
And so, Estling and Moore
crossed their entrepreneurial skill
with a love for furry creatures.
The result was no mongrel.
Splitting the proceeds from
the family sales of their beach do-
dads into equal shares a third.
for Estling, a third for Moore and
a third, for the St. Joseph Bay
Humane Society the youngsters
have raised more than $80 dollars
to care for Lee's animals.
"It's funi," Estling said. "It's
just great. Part of doing the shell
stuff is helping, animals and I
.think that's great."
All, while, never having met,
Lee or any other member of the
Humane Society's team of volun-
teers. ,
The two have talked with Lee
on thee phone, but Lee knew little
of their story or the motivation for
their largesse. until it was
recounted to her this week.
"I. think it's great," Lee said.
"Those kids could be out. doing
anything and instead they are
thinking of my animals. It makes
my job worthhile.
"If more kids thought like this
we wouldn't have a need for a
pound in 20 years."

July Garden of the Month


The Sea Oats. and Dunes
Garden Club presented its July
Garden 'of. the Month Award to
John and Liz Schweers-of 109
'Hidden Ridge Road in the Palm
Ridge section of St. Joe Beach.
The Schweers' are retired .ahdd
have resided in this area for three
years after moving from-Orange
Park.
The. first impression .upon,
: .approaching the Schw'.eers home
is one of bright flames erupting
into the air from amongst the wild
grasses. Moving closer one sees
that the "flames" are the foliage of
a plant, which Liz thinks is a
Torch. Lily.. This is' only the first of
many surprises in store in ,this
Garden. ..;.-
SWild gra~;ses and other plants
dug up and transported from the
fields,;: bdlbs once abandoned in
vacant lots, gifts of herbs from
their daughter, and- masses' of
moss roses are adorned with


Schweers Win Garden of Month
seashells and,.drittwooc1 to torm a
unique setting for their octagonal
house. ..
Also- of note: not a blade of
grass is to be found in the yard.
John left his lawn mower in
Orange Park and has realized his
dream of never 'mowing .a lawn
again. While the garden appears
very natural, the Schweers will
.tell you that ithas.hnot been easy
S'to create a garden in the sand.
SThe soil had to be amended and a
trial, and error method"' s
adopted in choosing the proper
plant and location. If a plant
doesn't do well, it'gets moved to
the "plant hospital" in the back
* yard until a -new spot can be
'found for it. ,
This Pard-en is a must see for
all garden. lovers and a tribute to
,those landscape articles that dare
us to "go native."
Nominations for a' Garden.of

My Memories of Wildlife Adventures in Gulf County'


by Barbara" Eells,
wildlife rehabilitator
There are many moments
that hallmark the wildlife rehabil-
itator/sea turtle volunteer's
efforts. It's the little things (or big)
that one has to share as an expe-
rience of learning:, awe, sadness
or happiness! I want to share a
few with you! These will be called,
"A Memory".
A Memory! the great blue
heron was ready to be released.
Paula (Boone) had reha' 'ed this
beautiful, but danger( s crea-
ture-an adult heron. .S'ie placed
him/her in a large box "o- the trip
to Butler's bridge at Highland
View. It was a perfect place for his
release. When we arrived, there
was another great blue standing "

along the bay's shoreline, and we
shared the thought, "Great! This
bird will have company!"
Paula opened the box and
allowed the bird to come out on
his own, and he did. He went a
few feet from the box toward the
water, and all of a sudden, he was
attacked. Attacked by the other
great blue! Her "poor" blue heron
ended up flying to a tree on the
'other side of the marsh, while the
attacker claimed his territory. We
learned a lesson that day: blue
herons are territorial!
A Memory! Not long ago,
while on regular bird count day (I
count shorebirds) I had the great,
pleasure of observing a pair of

HOW TO SIMPLIFY YOUR REAL ESTATE
BUYING/SELLING EXPERIENCE:
By: Dee Mitchell .
'Today's real estate consumer has a Ipf to consider during the sale or purchase of a
home. Be it waiting for the right bpyer/seller, mortgage rates, or the moving truck, the expe-
rience can take a bit of patience on the part of the consumer
With this in mind, it is incumbent upon real estate brokers/agents/firms to institute ser-
vices that will the buying/selling process hassle-free. "Realizing this trend is not going away,
the CENTURY 21 System has worked to improve the experience of buying or selling a home
through the CENTURY 21 Preferred Alliance Program. The program offers consumers arid
brokers access to strategic alliances with various links to home-related value added products,
and.services; making the process easier and much- more convenient," said Dcie Mitchell,
Century 21 Gulf Coast Realty, Inc.
Among the products and services offered through these alliances are ADT Home
Security Systems, CENTURY 21 Home Protection Plans@ and Budget@ Truck Rentals, just to
.name a few. The programs are offered at preferred pricing for all CENTURY 21 clients.
Therefore, the programs involved focus heavily on the immediate, yet long-term value of the
service/product for the consumer.
For example, homeowners will have their lawn equipment, home warranties, and home
security systems for many years of use, all of which come as a result of their purchase/sale
through the CENTURY 21 System. 'Today's consumer demands that a real estate firm pro-,
vide more service than just the sale and the purchase aspect of the transaction With that in
mind, our Preferred Alliance Program has been well received and very popular as a result".
Customer satisfaction rates are soaring, post.lransaction surveys have been very posi-
tive which has bolstered the overall success of the program among consumers," said Dee

two little stick legs!
Their father was standing
behind a piece of driftwood and

mother was standing on a small

ghost crabs were also eveing

whole family then walked, or fast

The mother then, stopped

diminish before fertilizer is
applied again.
Whenever we- talk about
fertilizers, we usually mention
that most plants need several

the year. Soils have a limited
capacity, to retain nutrients.
Those needed by plants for
healthy growth must be replaced
regularly. This method of applying

fertilizers at periodic intervals is a
sound and accepted practice. But,
it does. require a lot of time and
work. In this article I'll. describe
an easier and more. efficient
means of supplying plant
nutrients using controlled release
fertilizers. My information on
time-released fertilizers was
provided in .part by Extension
Horticulture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black.
Controlled release fertilizers
have been used by commercial
growers f6r many years. They are
liquid fertilizers concentrated into.
granules and surrounded by
multiple layers of polymeric
plastic resin. This covering
controls, the release of the
fertilizer over a long period of
time. When these granules are
placed in or on top of the soil,-
water from irrigation or rain
penetrates the 'plastic shell and
dissolves the nutrient core. 'The
granules then become tiny'
reservoirs of liquid plant food, and
these automatically add regular
amounts of nutrients to the .soil.
Various formulations of
.controlled release fertilizers are
available. And each one is
designed to release nutrients for
four to five months.
A single applicationn of a
controlled release fertilizer to
flower pots, or small beds. should
be'enough to keep the plants at
the optimum fertility level
throughout a normal growing.
season. Over %ern long periods. it
may be. necessary to make
additional applications to keep
.the. fertility level constant.
These fertilizers have other
advantages., They can be applied
any time of the year. And, they're
moisture dependent, rather than
temperature dependent. With
traditional fertilizers. 'nutrient
,uptake, is slowed, or stopped
altogethei-, if the soil temperature
drops too low. Controlled--release
fertilizers stop releasing nutrients
only when the soil dries out. After
irrigation or rain, they continue
supplying their elements to the,
soil. '
With new plantihgs. con
trolled-release fertilizers can .be
mixed into the soil. For-
established plants. surface
application are most effective if
the granules are tilled in
lightly-about a half-inch to an
inch. Be careful not to damage
plant roots when tilling. If the.
fertilizer is applied t'o the soil

I took Chnristmas to the Gulfl

A Memory! This past spn'ng.
John Rich brought in a large box.
tvo woodpecker babies, he said. I
thought, my goodness! That is a
large box for those little wood-
peckers! But. when I peered into
the box. I couldn't believe my
eyes! There lay, on their bellies, as
babies and fledglings do, two
pileated woodpeckers! This .was
late in the evening so I took them
,on in.
Next morning I called John. I"
knew the parents would be
searching for them. so I asked if I
could come camp out in his and
Trvxe's back yard and observe.
John had heard and seen the par-
ents. so 'we knew they weren't
dead .
We placed the box with the
fledges near the base of a pine
tree near where their nest tree
was located. Pleated woodpeckers
nest in dead pines or dying pines.
The parents called out. We then
;put the woodpeckers on the pine
itself. The older fledgling hew to,

ents were there the whole time,

" youngsters.
Eventually, within two hours'
they were flying from tree to tree.
The parents would continue to
feed them until they would be
taught to hunt on their own.
Now. it being a really warm
morning, John had brought out a
pitcher of ice water. He joined me
in watching. We also traded mem-
ories of people and places! He
shared with me rutabagas and

hibits dove hunting over baited
fields, it is legal to hunt doves
over standing crops, including
those that have been mowed or
disked.: Brown-top millet is an
excellent grain to plant for
mourning doves. .However, sun-
flowers. grain sorghum, bene and
other grain-type crops are equally
good for attracting doves.
"IVLllet matures quickly. is
easy to grow. and is well-suited
for Florida." Kane said. It does a
good job of attracting doves if you
plant a minimum of about 10-15
acres and mow or lightly disk it in
alternating rows after it matures
to provide seed and bare ground
for the doves. Bigger fields seem
to be even better."
By planting part of the field
around mid-July and another
section a few weeks later. dove
hunters can extend a field's
attractiveness to the birds.
because the second planting
matures later in the season
'It's best if you time at least
part of the field to mature two
weeks before the opening day of
dove season in early October.
Kane said. "Millet matures in
about 65 days."
Seeding rates vary with the
type of cultivation, but a guideline
is 30 lbs. of brown-top millet per
acre for broadcast and 10 lbs. per
acre drilled in rows. Sunflowers
are typically sown at 30 Ibs. per
acre broadcast and 15 Ibs. per
acre drilled and maturity is reach
in approximately 100- 110 days.
Grain sorghum matures in
approximately 110 days and is
planted at 20 lbs. per acre broad-
cast or 10 lbs. per acre in rows to
give best results.
Fertilizer rates can vary by
site location. and conducting a
soil test is a good idea. but as a
general rule 300 lbs. of 10-10-10
per acre for row crops and 500
lbs. per acre for broadcast crops
works fine. Count)' agricultural


extension offices or the
Commission's regional offices can
also further advise landowners
about which crop is best for spe-
cific soil types.
For those hunters without
access to private fields. the FWVC

mits for a number of locations

To The City of Mexico Beach

Mexico Beach 7/22/02

At times, there are issues that are so important to the citizen/ta-xpgaes of a city, that they must
be shared with ALL of the residents of the ditv. After much discussion, among many of us residents.,
of Mexico Beach. we decided that this is one of those tinimes. ..
At the July 9th Council meeting of the City of Mexico Beach, two of our residents spoke about
the citv wanting them to move their portable type carports, so as to comply with the set back reg-
ulations.-But. the previous administration told these people to put them where they liked, and enjoy
them. They were trying to make this a more pleasant, and friendly town to live in, by giving the res-
idents a chance to enjoy their private property. Although these carports are all over the city, it
seems strange that we could find only three families that were selectively targeted, one of which said
it felt like they-were being hounded by the Gestapo! By targeting only a.select few, the City is in vio-
lation of the 14th Amendment! It seems funny that these three targeted carports are across the
street. or around the corner from a council persons home. Funnier still, that on a rented lot, belong-
ing to another council person, sits one of these carports, with the poles sitting in buckets! Surely.
this is not up to the new wind codes. It would also appear that this carport would also violate the
set back regulations. How can these people be picked on for something like this, when this same
council changed our city's LDR and Comprehensive Plan, to suit an out of town builder, who was
building out of code, with multiple violations, on 38th Street? After the meeting, one of the gentle-
men who asked the council to reconsider, due to the many health problems that he and his wife
suffer from. went home and suffered a HEART ATTACK, brought on by the stress of this situation!
Congratulations, Council! This is a black day for our city. One that we should all feel ashamed for.
Our prayers are with this gentleman and his family.
Then, this administration sank to a new low.' One that even the most jaded of us would have
never expected. Mr. Tollie Mullins. a candidate for.Mayor, traveled to Panama City, to see Mr. Mark
Anderson. Supervisor of Elections, about our upcoming City election. You can understand Mr.
Mullins' shock. when he was told that the City of Mexico Beach had informed Mr. Anderson's office
that our Civic Center would not be available for our elections, due to a scheduling conflict. The City
did not even offer an alternative polling place! This is reprehensible and totally unacceptable behav-
ior bv this city! This Civic Center was built by the people, with their labor and donations, then
turned over the the city. Our elections have been held there for many years. There is NO excuse for
a scheduling conflict. We hold a Municipal election EVERY year, and of course it's always the sec-
ond Tuesday of November. No excuse or reason that this administration would give our citizens, for
this travesty, should or will be accepted.
But. because of the untiring efforts of Mr. Mullins, our election would have been held in our
city. despite City Hall. Upon returning to the city, he immediately started to alert people, and went
to meet with Mr Jerry Cozart. Mr. Cozart agreed to let us use his building, The Space Place, locat-
ed next to the Post Office. Mr. Mullins and Mr. Cozart drafted a letter to Mr. Anderson, who was
going to visit the site to see if it was acceptable to his office. But. before he could come out here,
the city' did an about face, due to public pressure, and said the Civic Center WOULD be available
for our election! This is an example of citizens sticking. together, and fighting for what is right.
Kudos to Mr. Mullins and Mr. Cozart. for rising above petty politics, and working together for the
benefit of ALL our voters. Your efforts on behalf of all of us will not be forgotten! The City is now
claiming it was just a misunderstandings No, Council. We understand perfectly!
If the election had to be moved out of town, it would have the greatest impact on our seniors
and less fortunates. that can't drive great distances, or depend on someone else for transportation.
These are the people who have been hurt the most by this administration. An administration that
pronused to help our low income people, and instead are running long time residents out of town,
because of high utility bills. Many of our elderly had to give up their cable T.V., their only source of
enjoyment. just so they could pay their sewer and water bill! Our latest two victims of high utility
rates are a lady living in a small trailer park on 15th Street. and a sweet lady named Nellie, a long
time resident, that had to give up her home on Fortner.
When asked at a meeting what are we going to do for our less fortunate, the Mayor replied, "Tell
them to go to Bay County., they have something set up for them there." This is not what we want
from our council. This is not what they had promised us. We are the "Forgotten Orphans" of Bay
County. About all we get from Bay County are higher taxes. This council had promised to help our
people, and it's about time they started, instead of worrying about helping out of town contractors.
When asked why the water rates were raised six months ahead of schedule, a councilman replied.
"What difference does it make? It's a new fiscal year." Ask the people who you have hurt. what a
difference it makes to them! Then they have the gall to take S15,000 dollars out of the WATER
FUND. to make repairs to a decrepit building they bought to be used as an office building. This is
a double insult. This building is probably termite infected, was going to be torn down by the owner.
was not needed, and \\ill probably never be up to code. We can waste money on a Vision Plan. some-
thing no one wants to pay for, and Is not needed. And they amended the budget for the non-fund-
ed project, even though this is in violation of Fl. Statute 166.241(3). That this Is a violation was con-
firmed by a phone call to the State Auditor General's Office. Municipality Division. These are monies
that could have been spent to help our citizens. We feel that this Administration was moving the
election in a blatant attempt to keep the very people away from the polls, who will surely try to vote
them out of office! These people surely will not forgive or forget, come November. And you can bet
that they WILL make it to the polls!

sion's special opportunity dove
Fields, are now available. Wing-
shooters who apply early can save
money by joining the Dove Club.
In fact,. by' joining, hunters can
trim more than half off the cost of
daily permits for hunting on most
special-opportunity dove' fields
throughout the state.
Dove Club perrmts cost $150
and are good for all hunts on ,a
particular area. Daily permits to
hunt on one of the same areas
cost S45 for an adult and youth to
hunt together.
An adult and youth also can
hunt one of the areas for $35 per
day if they decide to take no more
than a total of 12 birds, the bag
limit for one hunter.
These hunts get their special
status because fields are
managed to offer high-quality
hunting opportunities. The Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission adjusts the program as
necessary. For example, the
agency has deleted last year's low-
producing fields and added some
new ones for 2002-2003.
Annual Dove Club permits
are sold on a first-come, first
served basis, and permit
applications must be received by
the licensing office no later than
September'13
Annual permits are non-,
transferable and non-refundable.
They entitle the holder and a
youth, under age 16. to
participate in all scheduled hunts
for a particular field. Also, when
an adult with an annual Dove
Club permit is accompanied by a
youth, both may take a 12-bird
daily bag limit.
Interested hunters should
apply early to avoid missing out
on this opportunity. Applications
are available at the FWC's
Tallahassee headquarters. re-
gional offices, tax collectors'
offices and on the FWC's website
at www.flondaconservation.org.

with patients to ensure an accu-
rate diagnosis arid to answer their
questions, whether you are seeing
a general practitioner or a special-
ist such as an allergist or ophthal-
mologist. 'Your visit will be more
productive if you do a little bit of
homework before walking into the
doctor's office.
Make a list of questions to ask
your doctor. Patients who are
organized with their own list of
questions are much more likely to
'feel comfortable and. confident
with their treatment. They are less
likely to have questions later.,
And write down what the doc-
tor says. Relemng to that list of
questions and answers .can 'be
helpful later, particularly for older
patients.
There. are five questions that
patients should always ask:
A \\hat L. 'ny diagnosis?
A How can I learn more about
my illieissi'conditionl .
A What are the treatment
option's? ....
A What is my long-termi out-
look"
A Are there other things I
should do in terms of diet. exer-


rALZ M


I T".q


DPAGE Q


cise, etc. to improve my condi-
tioin?
When it comes to the medica-
tions your doctor prescribes, ask
another set' of questions:
A What symptoms does this
medicine treat?
A How much do I take and
when?
A How do I know if it is or. is
not working?
3 What are possible side
effects?
A Will this medication interact
with the other medications I am
,taking? .
SA \hat should I do if I forget;
to take it? '
There is one more list recom-
mended for patients: a list of their
current medications. This helps
patients; who are seeing a variety'
of doctors avoid medications that
can interact to cause unwanted
side effects. Be sure to include vit-
amins and herbs in addition to
prescription and over-the-counter
medications.'
Be prepared is a good motto
for Boy Scouts. and it's a good
motto lor patients too.
