YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER SINCE 1937


ThurdayJUNE8,209 or beakng ewsvist w w~strtlcom50e


By Despina Williams
Star StaffWriter
Though he wouldn't admit it, my
dad has taken on the characteristics
of a classic Greek mother.
Namely, he wants me to eat
constantly and frets over my weight.
Some might attribute this fixation
to living with a Greek woman for
more than 30 years, but I blame the
chickens.
For most of his life, Dad raised
game roosters and always was
experimenting with different diets to
achieve maximum performance.
With the roosters gone, he
now concentrates on building
up my "reserves," mainly by
recommending a diet heavy in fried
pork chops.
When I was in college, he
repeatedly urged me to put a pork
chop in my backpack "in case I got
hungy."
Today, when he makes pork chops
for dinner and no one makes
them better he always cooks one
extra so I can have it the next day for
lunI sa small, but powerful gesture
that reminds me how muchhe cares.
After all these yeqrs, he never has
stopped looking after me, making
sure I am healthy and safe.
I still am Daddy's little girl, and I
wouldn't have it any other way.-(Even
when I'm protesting: "Dad. I'm not
a chicken! Stop talking about my
Deserves!'")
Those who are fortunate enough
to have (or have had) a Wonderful
father know it is one of life's greatest
blessings.
With Father's Day approaching,
we asked our readers to tell us what
makes their father a "dear old dad."
We share their heartfelt responses
below, with our best wishes to good
fathers everywhere-

* Whal little girl does not love
a her Daddy? It is however, when
you grow up that you realize the
* magnitude of their influence in
g your life.
I did not have a Father
* or a Dad; I had a "Daddy."
My Daddy, Tom "Dooder"
Parker, helped me to realize the
a importance of family. He wanted
to preserve in the minds of his
children their heritage and the
a memories of their family stories,
from where they came and from
* whom. He wanted us to know
e these things toshare with our
children and grandchildren. I've
e tried hard to listen and to learn
and to remember his awesome
remembrances of our family '
e and of our great lown's humble
beginnings
* I have a favorite story of Daddy
, and me from many years ago. I
was about eight years old and
* the year was 1964. We were
floundering behind the old Post
Office, which is now the CVS Drug
* Store. We had our gigs in hand
and Daddy carried the lantern
* while I was in charge of floating
, thh tub for the flounders that we


were sure to get in droves. An
important job and one that I took
as a serious responsibility because
that's what Daddy said. It was a
wonderful memory because it was
ust Daddy and I and 'we usually
did not get to do things without
our entire family of 6 I was on
the outer side my Dad when we
began to hear a very eerie noise.
I can actually hear that sound
in my ears today and also the
look on Daddy's face stays in my
mind's eye as I sensed his concern.
When I asked him what we were
hearing, he said he didn't know,
but I remember that he immediately
put himself between the sound
in the water and me, t at put me
closer to land. We were up against
the St. Joe Paper Mill Low Docks
because that was where all the
good flounders were.
It wasn't until I was a young
lady that I realized, as we spoke
of that mcident, that in that night
he was not just my Father or the
Head of our house. He was my
Papa bear, my protector; He was
,, .,
my Daddy.
Happy Fathers Day Daddy!
Thanks for ALL of the memories you
have given me.
By the way. we never found out
what that eerie sound was or from
where it case, perhaps a whale
sound or a submarine. Others
heard it that night but no one knew
what it was.
It has been said that the best
thing that a Father can do for his
children is to love their Mother.
He did, he does and he cares
for her still after 62 years.
You make me proud Daddy.
I love you.
Your daughter,
Pam


*****************************


My father's hands are 93 years old. They are
wrinkled arid the fingers are crooked, sometimes cold
and numb.
There was a time when t ose hands were strong.
They could chop down a tree, plant a garden, start a
fire and hold me up in the water so I could learn how to
swim. .
Those hands could also be gentle enough to hold a
newborn chick and to put curlers in my hair Saturday
night for church the next morning.
Those fingers pointed out all the different flowers and
trees. He knew al their names.
Most of all I remember those hands holding my hand
when we went for an evening walk. Those hands were
warm and held mine tight. ,

depending on the time of year. Daddy
taught me how to change a tire in
less than 10 minutes. I was (aster than
any of the local boys, including James
Finch.
As time went on, Granny and Pa
got too old to work any longer, so they
retired and Daddy went to work for
Mr. Bill Pitts, driving a dump truck. I
remember that he would let me back
it in and out of the yard-when we cut
the grass. Later as I got older, Daddy
taught me how to drive the big trucks.
As it turned out, I was thei only child
in our family to become a commercial
truck driver. My Daddy died in 1972.
I was only 20 years old. I still miss my
Daddy.

My Daddy
My Daddy was I.W. Mount. He
was born in Opp, Alabama. He met
my Momma while driving a furniture
truck.-She was-sitting on the front porch
shelling butterbeans, bare footed. He
said it was "love at first sight." They
married in 1950. Granny and Pa
Mount only had two sons, my daddy,
J.W. and Uncle Pete. They all ran a gas
station in Lynn Haven called the Mo-Jo
Gas Station, on Ohio Ave., which is
also Hwy 77.
I ready loved being at the gas *
station. We had this ice house, where
daddy had these big blocks of ice, and
Kelly and I would get in there and eat
all the oysters we could.h61d down. .
They also had cold watermelons, .

two federal bonds totaling
$306,000 to help finance eco-

such as public infrastructure
improvements, job training,

the community. Gulf County
is eligible to receive a Recov-

"I am pleased that these

Congressman Allen Boyd.
"In addition to improving the

This federal funding is

According to Harmon, the estate
held special meaning for him, since
he had attended many events at the
house.
"It gives me a good feeling about
the solid foundation of my youth,"
Harmon said. "We had lots of
church functions here and it looked
just like it does now."
The Harmons said they had no
plans for the house right now and
probably would not do anything
with the property, other than up-
keep, for several years.

Dear Editor,
I note that our county
commissioners are
considering an increase
in future gas and sales
t I ake for
t asmand present
mishandling of taxpayer
.dollars. In regard to
the gas tax, many Gulf
Countians make regular
trips to Apalach, to
among other things,
drop off recyclables (no
such program in Gulf
County), so gas fill-ups
bould be done there,
which would have a
devastating effect on our
own stations.
Many travel to
Panama City to purchase
items not available here'
partly because property
taxes have made it so
difficult for businesses
to survive, Gas fill-ups
could be done there.
Speaking of property
taxes, we have one
commissioner who does
not pay therii, and now
we have commissioners
who can't seem to pse
their faxpayer-supplied
salaries and.subsidies to
their businesses to pay
theit own delinquent tax
bms. Oriewould think
that these individuals
would have a genuine
interest in at least .
lowering their own
tax burden, let alone
the burden they have
imposed on the rest of
us.

nor spend. In contrast, all $250
billion (less payroll taxes) will be
spent immediately, putting a sharp
brake on the downward spiral of
joblessness.
Ten million people should not be
paid $12 an hour to be idle. Rather,
the federal government should step
in as the employer of last resort.
We know this works. It worked in
the 1930s, and it will work agaiti
today.
During the New Deal, direct
federal employment created
over 10 million jobs, driving
unemployment to its lowest level
since the Great Crash.
Federal employees built schools,
hospitals and libraries; brought
electricity to millions of rural
households; preserved thousands
of acres of forest; and produced art
that is now a treasured part of our
heritage.
Now, as then, there is plenty
of work to do and plenty of people
who want work.
FDR knew that "Necessitous
men are not free men." We have a
choice: America the land of the
free or the home of the broke?

(UI). Today, state unemployment
programs set benefits so low that
few households dependent upon UI
can make ends meet.
We are the skinflint states.
The stingiest state is Arkansas,
where the average weekly benefit
($207) contributes only 29 cepts
of each dollar a family needs to
cover the bare minimum for food,
rent and utilities, transportation,
child care, clothing and household
expenses. Arkansas' average
weekly unemployment benefit
works out to $1.36 per hour less
than the federal minimum wage.
The least stingy state is Wyoming,
.where the average weekly benefit
($328.34) delivers 53 cents of each
dollar needed to meet basic needs.
U.S. workers collect, on average,
$269.29 per week in UI. This
replaces a mere 40 cents of each
dollar needed to cover the basics.
Ngw is the time to embrace
an economics of the people, for
the people and by the people.
Meaningful jobs at decent wages
are as essential to democracy as
freedom of speech and freedom of
religion.
Consider this simple math:
Hire 10 million people at $25,000
per year (about $12 per hour).
The cost? $250 billion dollars a
fraction of what we've handed the
nation's bankers, who neither lend


By Susan Feiner
FDR realized that "People who
are hungry and out of a job are the
stuff of which dictatorships are
made." Why do most economic
policies run counter to this basic
point?
Faith in markets leads .
economists to believe that full
employment is impossible, .
government intervention is .
destructive, deficits are bad,
and planning is futile. That is
nonsense.
Remember Galileo? His heresy
was challenging the belief that
the earth was the center of the
universe. It's as heretical today
to enact policies that don't place
markets at the center of the .
economy. Excommunicating
Galileo didn't change planetary
orbits, but misguided fealty to
markets does affect our future.
Today, over 14.5 million
Americans are jobless, and another
9 million are working reduced
hours. All 372 metropolitan areas in
the U.S. saw unemployment rise in
Mdy, and 93 recorded jobless rates
of at least 10 percent.
To fight employment and
reduce unnecessary suffering,

ground and swung across
the big ditch. We'd go
down by Roe Alexander's
riwimnfing'pool and listen
to Ifill Haley and the
Comets blastirig out this
new "rock 'n' roll" music
from those big speakers
underneath the top diving
board. And we played
endless hours of baseball
in the field behind our
house and in Terry
Browf's cow pasture and
in the vacant lot between
Ricky Hale and Jimmy
Mabry's house, over at
Bethel College and in
Paul David Campbell's
backyard and at the ball
field down by the Pajama
Factory.
Didn't anybody teach


pick up paper and sell
candy out of the little

free, and they paid me 25

Coasters, Platters, Jerry

were blasting out hit after
hit from those big loud
speakers. You talk about

I kissed Charlotte
Melton in June. Tipo
Cunningham fell off the

Elvis stopped and had a :

High school and June
went together like Lucy

came alive in the summer.
We'd cool the time away
over cherry Cokes as our
laughter, tears, hopes,
dreams, loves, mistakes
and innocence floated
into the night. You can't
get more alive than that!
I spent the ivorst year
of my life away from home
as a freshman in college.

modeling, recess or that
period where you got to
lay your head down after
lunch. I cried when I saw
the "welcome home" city

1966. I bought my first
automobile in June. I got
married in June. Well, you.
get the idea ...
I don't go to school any
more. The months peem
to come and go a heap .
faster than they used to.
But come first of June,
I stop arid smell that
wonderful air. I remember
how fresh life can be. I'm
reminded there is a dawn
after the darkness..I still
get that special feeling of
freedom that only June
can bring. Life is good.

baseball back then; you
played yourself into the .

It was the greatest
June ever recorded!
As soon as the Fourth
of July ended, the cloud of
August loomed large on
the horizon. School was
calling us back. It would
put you in sudh a state of
depression, it is a wonder
any of us survived. How
could you ergoy sliding

stood to dust yourself off
you remembered your
time was short? We were
experiencing the great
highs and lows of life! .
The teachers
changed, we moved
to cursive writing and
world geogrAphy, but
the confinement was
just as arduous. If it
hadn't a'been for clay
modeling, recess and
lunch, I wouldn't have
made it. And as soon as
school reconvened after
the Christmas break, I
started looking for June.
I got my first little
league uniform in June. It
was the old heavy flannel
type which would be -
wringing wet with sweat
by the Natiorial Anthem.
But it had a number on
the back and came with a
matching hat. I was in the
big time!
By the fourth grsde,
we'd make March and
May tolerable by listing
the things we were
going to do come June,
Anticipation is a great
partner. The "school's .
out" parties started in
junior high. And I weixt
to work for Roe down at
the Twin Pools. It was-the
happerting place. All the
girls worked on their tans.
The guys came to watch
the girls work on their

March musta not

Dear Editor,
In some ways
Sunday, June 14, was like
every other Sunday for
the past 20 or so years.
Friends and family were
gathering to celebrate
their blessings and
thank God for all that he
has given. Deep inside,
everyone knew that this
Sunday was different.
It would be the last
time that they would
be together under the
roof of the house that
they had built. There
would not be any snacks
after the service, nor
would there be any .
planning for upcommg
events. The doors would
close and Our Lady Of
Guadalupe Church in
Mexico Beach would see
her family for the final
time. I can remember so
ma Easter Services
wh the church would
be filled to capacity
in anticipation of the
Easter Play. The church
ladies always did such
a wonderful job in
decorating the place
with flowers. It was
always so beautiful.
When Christmas arrived,
you knew that you'd
better get there early
or might find yourself
standing. For quite
some time, there were
only plastic chairs,'
and when Our Lady
got pews, it was quite
an accomplishment.
Our Lady was built by
hard work, dedication
and love. Love was
the common theme of
longtime priest Father
Jim for each service.
It always seemed that
he only wanted people
tobe accepting of each
other and to share the
love that God shared so
freely. He wasn't big on
"passing th plate." In
fact, I believe, if it was
rip to him, we would have
just skipped that part
and had another dose of
how we should be nicer,
more loving people,
Thef-e were no
strangers that entered
OurLady. Father Jim
always stressed that

that American cigarettes
contain about 9 milligrams
of nicotine per cigarette, but
a smoker only inhales one to
two milligrams of the drug
(in the smoke) from every
cigarette.
The IPCS analysis deter-
mined the mean lethal dose
of nicotine for adults was 3,0
to 60 milligrams at one time;
in children, the lethal-dose
was considered to be about
10 milligrams of nicotine
consumed in one very short
time frame.
Dizziness, .nausea and
even vomiting are com-
mon problems experienced
by people trying their first
cigarette. These are the first
symptoms of nicotine poi-
soning. However, cigarette
smokers very quickly de-
v p ab e anceo th e

analysis.
The analysis also stated
that mcotine inhaled m to-
bacco smoke enters the
blood almost as rapidly as
something injected through
an I.V (intravenous) injee-

tionAnd because nicotine
that is inhaled through
cigarette smoke enters the
bloodstream through the
eak
t lsh s gher
and take less time between
smoking and when nicotine
hits the brain than after an
I.V injection,
Evert though nicotine is
metabolized fairly rapidly in
the body, with repetitive dos-
ing it still accumulates in the
body.
According to the IPCS
document, the half-life of
nicotine averages two hours,
meaning that over a six-to-
eight-hour period of con-
sistent smoking, there are
significant levels of nicotine
in the blood after you stop
puffing.
So if you smoke until you
go to sleep, you are still ex-
posed to significant concen-
trations and possible drug
effects of nicotine'even in
your sleep basically 24
hours a day.
When pregnant women
smoke, the carbon monoxide
and high doses of nicotine
they inhale interfere with the
baby's oxygen supply. -
Nicotine readi crossed
the placenta into the fetus,
and nicotine concentrations
in the fetus can be as much
as 15 percent higher than the


smoldng mother's.
Newborns of smoldng
mothers, especially women
who smoke during pregnan-
cy, often show signs of drug
withdrawal comparable to
infants exposed to other ad-
dictive drugs.
Yet the IPCS states m its
scientific analysis of nicotine
that "preventative measures
for occupational exposure to
nicotine include: adequate
ventilation, chemical gog-
gles, mechanical filter respi-
rator, rubber gloves, aprons
and boots.
So why, one could reason-
ably ask, is nicotine legal

ing properties of nicotine
and might also contribute to
tobacco addiction
The researchers also re-
ported that this effect is age-
related, suggesting that the
brains of adolescents may be
more vulnerable to tobacco
addiction than adult brains.
Researchisbeginning to
suggest that there may be
biological reasons for this
increased vulnerability in,
adolescents.
Adolescent rats have
proven more susceptible
to the reinforcing effects of
nicotine than adult rats and
take more nicotine when it is
available than do adult ani-
rnals.
Adolescents may also
be more sensitive to the re-
inforcing effects of nicotine
in combination 'with other
chemicals found in eiga-
rettes, thus increasing nic-
otine's addictive properties
in adolescent, but not adult,
animals.
Nugent, who began
smoking in college 35 years
ago, watched his father die
of lung cancer, "blit even that
wasn't enough to make me
stop,"hesaid.
Now the type of re-
search coming out of places
like NIDA colors Nugent's
thoughts on smoking a to-
tally different shade.
"The best thing in the
world is for kids to not start
smoking or chewing at all,"
he said. "I think if anybody
who didn't smoke talked
about it with somebody who
did, they'd never start."


By Marie I.ogan
Contributing Writer
There was a lot of laugh-
ter in the room, but the
group's focus was noticeable
to an observer.
Twelve members of Gulf
County's law enforcement
family were gathered around
a table in late May to do one
thing: solve the mystery of
how to quit smoking and dip-
ping
Sheriff Joe Nugent, him-
self a smoker, along with
his wife, some of his inves.
tigators, deputies and office
support personnel were all
there at Nugent's insistence..
Joining them were members
of the Port St. Joe Police De
apartment and volunteer fire
department, and one or two
sers with city and county
In all, 16 people were in
class that afternoon. It. was
the first of six classes to be
presented to eight groups
in the Tobacco Cess'ation/
Chronic Diseases) program
currently being conducted
by the Gulf county Health
Department m conjunction
with-several area organiza-
tions.
The programs under the
direction of Rosa Feltrop, the
health departments tobacco
prevention health educator.
Fbr six weeks in May az}d
June, a total of 64 people
will band together to learn
the best techniques to quit
smoking. It will not be easy,
but it will be well worth the
effort, or multiple efforts,
necessary.
It's a mihd thing," Nugent
said. "It all comes down to
your attitude about it."
The reasons for this
group's wanting to quit were
all pretty similar. They did
not have the stamina to do
their jobs as well as they
used to.
They were concerned for
their families. They hated
the corittant, deep coughing.
Itwastime-
"We're all in our 40s and
50s," said Nugent. "We need
to be doing what we eati for
our health."-
"It's times" agreed John
Fbrd, fire chief of the Port St.
Joe Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment. He appeared to want
to say something else, then
shookhisheadandrepeated,
"It's just time." .
So what do they face in
solving the mystery of how
to kick the habit of nicotine
addiction?
First, the facts.
Nicotine is a chemical
in tobacco leaves, a natu-
rally occurring, colorless
liquid that turns brown when
burned and smells like to-
bacco when exposed to air.
In its natural state in
the tobacco plant it serves
as the plant's natural defense
against insects.
Since nicotine. naturally
occurs in tobacco plants, ci-
gars and smokeless tobacco-
products contain nicotine as
well as cigarettes.
Nicotine is also what
makes tobacco products so
addictive.
It is a deadly drug, as
addictive as anything so far
identified.Iteurrentlybasno,
beneficial uses except as an
insecticide. But it is legally
sold in a recognized drug-
delivery system (tobacco
products) on the open retail
market.
What makes nicotine so
insidious, especially in the
form of cigarettes, is that sei-
. ence has repeatedly proven
that nicotine activates the
reward centers of the brain
-the brain circuits that reg-
ulate feelings of pleasure,
Nicotine is a natural liq-
uid alkaloid that acts oil the
central and peripheral ner-
vous systems. Fbr those who
chew and dip tobacco, nico-
tine reaches the central ner-
yous tem in about three
to five minutes. A cigarette
cuts it down to seconds.
Here's the crime.


and heroin, which cause th?
same changes in the brain,
But those drugs are illegal.
. Internal documents from
the tobacco companies,
made public by the 1998 mas-
ter settlement agreement,
proved that tobacco execu-
tives knew years before the
Surgeon General that nico-
tine was addictive.
According to the scien-
tific analysis of nicotine by
the International Program
on Chemical Shfety (IPCS),
"Nicotine is one of the most
toxic of all poisons and has
a rapid onset of action. ...
Nicothie is also a powerfully
addictive drug. ... It is a sub-
stance of abuse."
The analysis also states,
several times, that there is
no known antidote to nico-
tine.
According to the analy-
sis, nicotine occurs natu-
rally win the tobacco plant
in concentrations of 0.5, to
eight percent, and common
blends of cigarette tobacco,
althorigh variable, contain
nicotine concentrations of
15 to 25 milligrams per ciga-
rotte.
Other scientific data state


With each puff of a ciga-
rette, a smoker pulls nicotine
into his or her lungs, where it
is immediately absorbed into
the blood.
As soon as nicotine hits
the bloodstream, it stimu-
lates the body's adrenal
gland, which releases a dose
of epinpphrizie (adrenaline).
That rush of adrenaline
stimulates the entire body
and raises the heart rate,
breathing rate and blood
pressure. It causes the ar-
.teries to narrow and con;
tributes to hardening of the
arteries over time.
coine als ban 4 Au-
pose (blood sugar) to be re-.
leased into the blood, which
is why sinokers feel more
alert after smoking a ciga-
rette.
Simultaneously, the nic-
otine suppresses insulin
production in the pancreas,
which is why smokers are al.
ways slightly hyperglycemic..
In seven. to 10 seconds
from the first puff, nicotine
hits the brain, changing the
way the brain works.
This happens so fast for
two reasons. The ammonia
which tobacco companies
have added to cigarettes ac-
tually increases the amount
of nicotine delivered to the
body.
And nicotine is liter-
ally shaped like the natural
brain chemical acetylcho-
line. Acetylcholine is one
of many chemicals called
neurotransmitters (think of
thern as messengers), which
carry "messages" between
brain cells (neuroIts).
Neurons have special
spaces in them called re-
ceptors, into which specific
neurotransmitters (messen-
gers) canfit, just like a key
into a lock.
Nicotine, because it is
shaped like something al-
ready in the brain, locks
into acetylcholine receptors,
causing rapid changes m
boththebodyandbrain.
Nicotine also attaches
to the particular brain celhi
that release a neurotrans-
mitter. (messenger) called
dopamine.
Nicotine stimulates the
brain cells to release unusu-
ally large amounts of dopa-
mine, which in turn stimu-
lates the brain's pleasure
and reward center, a group
of brain structures involved
in appetite, learning, memo-
ry and pleasurable feelings.
Normally, feelings of
pleasure come from things
like food, comfort and the
company of people you love.
Btst smoking cigarettes alSO
causes a flood of dopamine
in the smoker's brain F
ing the smoker that intense
"ahhh" feeling. Result? Im-
mediate addiction.


Depending on the dosage
of nicotine absorbed and the
person's mood, smoking can
be stimulating or relaxing.
But the nasty effects of
nicotine don't end there.
Normal brain cells reab-
sorb neurotransmitters after
they've done their work and
delivered their "message.",
But cigarette smoke causes
dopamine to stay in the spac-
es (synapses) between brain
cells,
After repeated doses
of nicotine, the brain actu-
ally changes.'Ib adjust to*the
constant overload of dopa-
mine, the brain cuts produce
tiorior the neurotransmitters
and reduces the number of
receptors. Now the smoker
needs nicotine just to create
normal levels of dopamine
in his or her brain. Without
nicotine, the smoker feels ir-
ritable and depressed. So the
solution is to light up again...
and again ... and again,
As far back asi 1988, the
U.S. Surgeon General re-
ported that cigarettes were
addictive, using the same
scientific standards that
were applied to other ad-
dictive drugs like cocaine

My Sweet Daddy
I say, "I love you, Daddy," he says,. "Daddy
loves you too, baby!" That exchange brings a lump
to my throat, and even more so now. I remember
Daddy sounding like my PR person while telling folks,
sometimes even strangers, they should hear his baby
sing and play the piano for the Lord. I believe he
would have sat and listened as lon9 as I would play
and sing.
Then there's the night Buddy told my parents he
wanted to marry me. The silence was deafening.
Finally, Daddy said, "Son, don't you ever lay a hand
on her; if you ever decide you don't want her you
bring her back home!"
Another moment forever etched in my mind is
September 29, 1990, just as Daddy was about to
walk me down the aisle. I looked into his eyes and
saw big tears rolling down his cheeks. I said, "I love
you, Daddy." He said, "Daddy loves you too, baby!"

1 used to wait impatiently for my dad to come
home because, as the editorial page editor
for a major daily newspaper, he brought the
newspaper home, which I then set upon and
devoured
' For my father, that was a time to unwind, and
that meant a seat infront of the living room piabo,
where he would play and play, by heart, his
favorite songs, mostly classical or religious hymns.
He was spectacular and as he played I would try
to solve the "Two-Minute Mystery" that appeared
every day in the paper before moving to sports or
news.
Andaftermydadwasdoneatthepiano,
had decompressed a bit, it was time for dinner.
My dad and mom would consume most of the
meal over talk of the events of the day, current
events, what was happening in the world. I fourid
it.endlessly fascinating a.nd more so on those
occasions when news would cause my father to
plop behind his old Remington typewriter to bang
out an editorial.
I remember vividly the dgy Martin Luther King,
Jr. was assassinated, the day Robert Yennedy was
shothy an assassin, if for no other reason than
seeing my father at that typewriter, pounding out
his thoughts, the emotion filling his room.
Maybe by osmosis, maybe some gene yet
to be discovered, my father passed on to me
the inquisitiveness, passion.for delivering the
news that filled his spirit. I still carry with me
everywhere a letter he wrote to me when I first
ventured into journalism, the pride and joy he
found in that pursuit and how he hoped 1 would
find the same satisfaction and enjoyment he
mined from his job.
And I always carry a fundaMental lesson
rhy father repeated time and agam around that
crowded six kids two adults, the math is easy
- dinner table..Newspapers exist to not only
cheerlead about or report on a community, but as
importantly to provide community leadership.
This isn't a job or a career,.it never was for
my father; it was a calling. I still hear his words
every time I read that letter. I just wish he was still
around to provide his consistently sage advice or
had lived long enough to see that his son did his
best in filling his enormous shoes.

Our dad, Steve Newman, is axivesome! He
provides for us and always makes us feel safe
and loved. He always keeps his word when he
promises to do something. He's not a stick-in-the-
mud kind of dad. He does his best to make every
experience memorable. He's cool and fun and we
love him very much.
Happy Father's Day,
Hayden, Farren and Elli .


* My Dad is the father of four completely grown up

What Makes our
Dad Special
One of the endearing
qualities of our father,
Dave Maddox, is his
desire tp freely help
other people.
Daddy was often
'called upon as a harbor
pilot to use his boat to
look for people who
were presumed lost by
their families. These
were often all night
expeditions with him
returning the lost people
as the sun was rising the
next morninG
In the early years'
he worked with the
locdi volunteer fire
department, gave
children rides on
ponies at many
school carnivals, and
organized the local

When I think of all the wonderful
memories with my Daddy, Monima
was right there with us. My parents,
Steve and Pam Lawrence, were
such a team as they are to this day.
Because of their love for eac other,
my childhood was filled with warmth,
reassurance, trust and compassion.
,
Because of my parents
"teamwork," it's no wonder one of
my fond est memories with my Daddy
was the time he spent with me playing
softball. I was about nine years old
when the local girl's softball league
was established in St. Joe baddy
was the coach of my team; we were
the Renfro Rockets1 We were not
the best team in the league, but I
always.had so much fun playing
because Daddy was there, constantly
reassuring me and giving me great
advice. He always exhibited patience
and kindness, even when I didn't
deserve it.
To this day, Daddy is so much a
part of my life. He instilled the love


LEIGH AND STEVE LAWRENCE
for God in my older sister and me. He
has never faltered in his dedication to
our family and has always possessed
the humble wisdom of a strong,
Christian man. I'm (ar from perfect,
but1 know the righf paths to take.
This is because Daddy (and Momma)
constantly reminded me of the true
meaning of faith, family and love.
I love you always,'my precious
Daddy. Happy Father's Day!

The gopher toi'toise is listed as a
threatened species in Florida.
Before land-clearing begins,
developers must arrange to move
any gopher tortoises present out of
harm's way. Gopher tortoise relo-
cation requires a permit from the
FWC.
The FWC plans to add addi-
tional permits and licenses from
other programs over the next year,
making its online permitting sys-
tem a leader in an environmentally
friendly,. efficient, cost-effective
way tohandle the permit process
for the state.
For more information about the
management plan go to http://My-
FWC.com/GopherTortoise.


ings in issuing permits."
The FWC approved a manage-
ment plan for gopher tortoises in
September 2007, which provides
guidelines for landowners whose
property contains gopher tortois-
es. The plan also calls for develop-
ment of the permitting guidelines
finalized in April to ensure Florida
meets the tortoise's habitat needs
now and in the future.
The new permitting framework
strives for efficiency as well as for
providing excellent customer ser-
vice, which in turn achieves the
management plan's objective to
decrease gopher tortoise deaths on
lands proposed for development by
facilitating successful relocations.


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
announced the successful launch
of the new gopher tortoise permit-
ting system. The new system went
online in late April, and by the end
of May, the FWC had issued more
than 100 permits using the paper-
less system.
"We made several permit types
available online in March," said Deb-
orah Burr, Gopher 'Ibrtoise Man-
agement Plan coordinator. "Then
in April, we went live with all of our
gopher tortoise permits, including
conservation permits for relocating
gopher tortoises. It has been a tre-
mendous success so far. The feed-
back from those who have used the


new system has been positive."
During the past year, an FWC
team worked closely with a con-
tractor to develop the gopher tor-
toise online permitting system.
The team's efforts will serve as the
foundation for making all FWC per-
mits available online. Along with
the permitting system, the FWC
launched an e-learning component
to ensure the tortoises are prop-
erly handled and relocated. A new
Google map feature helps to locate
authorized agents and other go-
pher tortoise permitted locations.
"Very notable differences with
the new system are the ease of re-
viewing applications," Burr said,
"and the time and resource say-


upward-growing shoot will become the
trunk, and the shoot growing along the
wire willbecome the cordon. Cordon es-
tablishment shouldbecompleted during
the first growing season, Be sure to re-
move the string from the trunk
or any tags that may girdle the
vine. Keep lateral shoots no lon-
ger than 1 foot from the cordon
to ensure enough growth goes
into garden formation.
During the first year, grapes
should be fertilized with a quar-
ter pound of 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 fer-
LEE tilizer, applied in bands about a
TER foot away from the plant, soon
extension after growth begins. Repeat ap-
ctor plication in May, July and Sep-
tember. Fertilizer rates increase
eachyearbuttheynevershouldexceed
6 pounds per vine pei year. *
To get rid of weeds, you can use a
good herbicide, or you can cultivate
around the plants. The plant has a very
shallow root system, however, so be
careful when weeding. Mulches can be
helpful in controlling weeds. But be sure
to leave a circle of at least six inches
around each vine uncovered.
Grapes need a generous supply of
water to survive in our area. In fact,
more first-year grapes die from lack of
water thap from any other cause. Make
sure the plant receive one inch to one
and a half inch weeldy.
Muscadine grapes mature in Au-
gust and early September. If you don't
plan to use them for jam, jelly or wine,
they should be picked from the vine and
stored at 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
For rhore information on growing
muscadine grapes contact your local co-
operative extension service or go to the
University of Florida website and get fact
sheet HS763 "The Muscadine Grape."


The muscadine grape is a popular
fruit that grows very well here in Florida.
It has smaller leaves than bunch grapes,
and its fruits are harvested singly, rath-
er than in bunches. These grapes can be
enjoyed fresh, and they can be
used for home wine-making. One
of the nice things about grow-
ing muscadine grapes is they
rarely are bothered by insects
or diseases. My information on
muscadine grapes was provided
by retired Extension Fruit Crops
Specialist Dr Tim Crocker, of the
University of Florida, Institute of ROY
Food and Agricultural Sciences. CAR
' You should avoid poorly County e
drained soils, such as muck or dire
marl. If the grapes are grown
on soil with very good drainage, they
should be set m the ground deeper than
they were grown in the nursery. On land
with high water tables, grapes should
be planted on raised beds at the same
depth they were at in the nursery.
The most simple training system
to establish and maintain is the single-
wire bilateral cordon training system.
After planting, a single, vertical sheet
is trained to the wire. Normally at least
three or four competing.sboots will
emerge from the young plant. Select
the strongest and straightest. The up-
ward growth of thp shoot is supported
by a stake or string attached to the wire.
Prune side shoots as they emerge, but do
not remove the leaves'growing directly
on the trunk. During the early summer,
the shoot should reach the 5- to 6-foot
wire. Promote the formation of straight
shoots since the shoot will harden and
become inflexible as it matures. As it
reaches the wire, prune the tip of the
shoot to facilitate the growth of two side
branches to either side of the wire. The


though mosquito diseases
can cause serious illnesses
and even death in people of
any age, children and those
over 50 are at greatest risk
for severe disease.
Avoiding mosquito bites
is the best way to prevent
disease. DOH recommends
remembering the five Ds:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid
being outdoors when mos-
quitoes are seeking blood.
Dress Wear clothing
that covers mostof your skin.
DEET When the po-
tential exists for exposure
to mosquitoes, repellents
containing up to 30 percent
DEET are recommended.
Other effective mosquito
repellents include picari-
din, oil of lemon eucalyptus,
and IR3535.
Drainage Check
around your home to rid
the area of standing wa-
ter, where mosquitoes lay
eggs.


TALLAHASSEE-FloridaDe-
partment of Health officials
emphasize the importance
of protecting themselves
against mosquito-borne
diseases as we move into
the summer rainy season
and peak mosquito activity
months. DOH works with
partner agencies, including
the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-

sities throughout the year,
to monitor for the presence
of illnesses carried by mos-

the arrival of the U.S. Mail.
Sometimes there even is
a competition about who
gets the honor of taking it
to Mom or Dad.
This youthful
exuberance, combined
withalackof
understanding, can make
a dangerous, even deadly,
combination, Port St.

"Letter carriers are
always on the lookout
for kids, pets and other
vehicles," Geoghagan
said. "However, we can
allimproveourchances
of avoiding an accident by
teaching children what
they must do to protect
themselves."
The Postmaster
suggests childrenwhen
they see the U.S. Mail
delivery vehicle, stay clear
of the roadside box and
wait in their yard at a safe
distance until the delivery
vehicle is gone. Then, and
only then, should they
retrieve the mail.

Always read label di-
rections carefully for the
approved usage before ap-
plying a repellent.
In protecting children,
read label instructions to
. be sure the repellent is ap-
propriate.
Infants should be kept
indoors, or mosquito net-
ting should be used over
carriers when outside.
Avoid applying repel-
lents to the hands of chil-
dren. Adults should apply
repellent first to their own
hands and then transfer
It to the child's skin and
clothing.
Apply insect repellent
to exposed skin or onto
clothing, but not under
clothing.
If additional protection
is necessary, apply a per-
methrin repellent directly
to clothing or gear. .

The Bluewater Charity
Classic Offshore Fishing
Tournament in Port St. Joe
survived a breezy start and
ended with a beautiful day
for the exciting weigh-in
at the Port St. Joe Marina.
After an exciting Captain's
Party attended by more
than 260 people, some of the
59 registered boats braved
rough waters to begin
fishing. Bluewater owner
and tournament promoter
George Duren promises
that this will be the first
of many Bhiewater Clas-
sic Tournaments. Fisher-
men from Florida, Georgia,
Alabama, Tennessee and
South Carolina competed
and can plan on fishing
the tournament again next
year on June 5.
TournaMent Chairper-
son, Mitch Coleman of
FLoridazeAdventurs.com .


concurred that the whole
tournament was a success.
Judge David Taunton of
the Taunton Family Chil-
dren's Home, the event's
charity, spoke at the family
day event and shared with
the crowed the joy that he
has experienced in giving
more than 300 children a
home over the last 30 years.
The proceeds of the tourna-
ment after expenses are to
go to the rebuilding of the
Taunton Family Children's
Home (www.tauntonhome.
org), which they lost to a
fire last fall.
Sponsors from Port St.
Joe, Mexico Beach, In-
dian 'Pass and Cape San
Blas helped make it all
possible.
A link of the results.and
many photos of the vent
can be viewed at www.blue-
vvatercharityclassic.com.
