Puts Three New Engines In Service
,. .. -.-z Apalachicola Northern Railroad Company received
delivery of three new, shiny GM locomotives Saturday
-..afternoon, which were expected to be put into service
According to B. Roy Gibson, Jr., Vice-President of the
railroad, the locomotives are 1,500 horsepower diesel-electric
powered. The new engines have more fuel efficient -
eight-cylinder diesel engines with turbochargers. "They're:"
the same horsepower as our old engines, even though the od..
engines have 12 cylinder engines".
Gibson said the new engines were purchased to enable
the railroad to begin running four train loads of coal out of
Port St. Joe each week, beginning around July I.

A MAN'S WORLD
BY SHAD PHANTRY
My next to the oldest
brother tore down our out-
house. It was the last standing
monument to an era of hard-
ship and cold and hot accom-
modations. In less than a half
a day it lay in a pile no bigger
than a cord of wood.
Our outhouse was no ordi-
nary outhouse. It was one of'
the most modern two-seaters
in our community. It was
tapered from the ground up-
ward so that at a distance, it
looked like a church steeple

it down we had indoor plumb-

four years. My father, how-
eMVP; was a very frugal and
cfo~el-vative man. He was this
way out of necessity and not
by choice. He decided that we
would'keep the outhouse as a
"back-up" in case something
went wrong with the newly
installed pump and-'or plumb-
ing. As it turned out he was
right because the first winter
all the pipes froze and we had
no indoor facilities. And, as we
all know, when you've got to

led according to label instruc-
tions. It is rapidly biodegrad-
able and will not persist in the
soil or filter down into ground
water. It was registered condi-
tionally in 1980 by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency and
is environmentally accept-
able. Its toxicity is so low that
EPA only requires that Amdro
packages carry a "caution"
What is the most effective
way to apply Amdro? Indivi-
dual mounds can be treated
with as little as five table-
spoonfuls distributed evenly
around the base of the mound
for a.distance of three to four
feet. Under no circumstances
should. the mound itself be
disturbed. Broadcast applica-
tion by ground equipment is
best when large areas are
infested. Broadcasting also
assures that mounds not yet
visible will be treated. The
recommended rate is one
pound per acre, ideally when
soil temperature is above 60
degrees Farenheit and the
ants are the most active.

CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT ,
The atmosphere around us has become a
.very popular topic and air pollution, ecology,
etc., have thus become very familiar terms. In
a pharmacy, we have always been especially
* concerned with the close control of the environ-
ment because so many of the medicines we stock
are susceptible to atmospheric changes.
Just as changes in heat, light, cold,, humid-
ity, most definitely effect' our normal way of
living, so too can they effect the life cycle or
potency of a great many drugs. As a pharmacist,
we must know how to best protect every medi- B
cine so that when it reaches the patient it is
ready to perform as the doctor intends.
r "A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US U
with their prescriptions, health needs and other |
pharmacy products. We consider this trust a
privilege and a duty. May we be your personal
family pharmacy?" .

The problems of hazardous
waste, particularly in the sen-
sitive environment of a state
such as Florida, were the focus
this week: of. a hearing in
Tallahassee conducted by one
of the subcommittees of the
House.Committee on Science
and Technology, which I serve
as chairman. ;. ,
Both as chairman of the full
committee and the. Congress-
man representing Tallahassee I
was pleased to participate in the
hearing which took testimony
from a broad, spectrum of
' Florida citizens ranging from
state legislators to academic
researchers, regulators, city and
county officials, and industry.
Florida and even the Second
Congressional District is
vulneralle to hazardous waste

local government units are not
educated on proper controls to
assure that the wastes do not
infiltrate our water sources.

number of identified hazardous

A recurrent theme through-

Careless Moments Cause
By Anne O'Neil Nelson
It happens to the people
you'd least 'expect it to.
Young, outgoing, athletic, po-
pular- the kind who are
elected to the prom court. The
kind who like to do crazy
things, have fun, take risks.
Who could imagine that driv-
ing a little too fast, drinking a
little too much, taking the
dare and diving off a bridge-
could make you spend the rest
of your life in a wheelchair?
"Spinal cord injuries hap-
pen that quickly," says Lani
Deauville, director of Flori-
da's Vocational Rehabilitation
Program. "And they are that
Deauville should know. She
was one of the bright, outgoing
ones at 17. Ex-cheerleader,
aspiring model, high school
diving champion. Brash, con-
fident the day she dove off a
seawall in 1958. The day she
was' hauled out of the water
with a broken neck. The day
she began a new life.
Today, at 42, Deauville is
still bright, outgoing, confi-
dent. She still faces life with
the same spirit, the same.
optimism. The difference is,
since that day 25 years ago,
she faces life from a wheel-
chair. And she has a message.
"It can happen to you," she
says. "Young 'people think
they can beat the odds. But
you could walk out the door

by a car and be spinal cord
,Spinal cord injuries do tend
to happen to young people,
especially young males. Fifty
percent of the injuries affect
people under 25; of the 385
spinal cord injuries that oc-
curred in Florida last year,
321 involved males.
Most of our schools and
laboratories are currently per-
forming their research on equip-

the Committee on Science and

Diving accidents are one of
the four main causes of spinal
cord injuries; they accounted
for about 10 percent, or 41
people in 1982. Auto and
motorcycle accidents, the
most common cause of injury,
accounted for 42 percent, or
157 people. Gunshot wounds
and falls are the other chief
Jim Bruce, who heads up
Florida's Spinal Cord Injury
Program, estimates that as
many as 80 percent of the
injuries among young people
are alcohol or drug related.
"Alcohol and drugs are
involved in a lot 'of these
accidents- whether they're
car accidents, gunshot wound,
diving or whatever," Bruce
said. "People just have got to
get thq message that drinking
and driving don't mix. And if
they're hunting, they should
leave the booze in the car."
Of course, he adds, having
the common sense ?to take
safety precautions is the best
way to keep from getting a
spinal cord injury.
"Prevention is what we're
emphasizing," Bruce said.
"Because once 'the injury
occurs, there's no going back.
The spinal cord does not -heal
Things people can do to
prevent spinal cord injury
Jump in feet first, don't dive
the first time you go to a new
water spot;. Wear a seatbelt
(nationally, 92 percent of all.
people who were spinal cord
injured in auto accidents last
year were not wearing seat-
belts); Wear protective equip-
ment when on a motorcycle;
Obey speed laws and don't
combine alcohol or drugs with
driving; Take safety precau-
tions with all firearms; When
climbing a ladder, make sure
it's secured; Use the handrail
when walking down a steep
flight of stairs.
Bruce also emphasizes the
iinportance of knowing what
to do if you're there when
someone gets a back or neck
"Injuries are created when
people get improper treat-
ment at the accident scene,"

Bill Bryant, the Veterans:
Services Officer at the V.A.
Regional Office in Florida,'
said that veterans have -al-
ways been advised that they,
must use their education
benefits within ten years after
their release from active duty,.
This used to' be such an iron
clad ruleithat most veterans
would never dream of getting
VA education benefits beyond
this ten year cut off date. This
is unfortunate% since many
Vietnam veterans have alrea-
dy passed their ten year date.'
This program is really a
second chance for those ve-
terans, to ,receive educational
benefits. The extension is good
for any program except col-
lege level courses and flight

little as possible. If you must
move them to get them out of
the water or out of a car, for
instance, be sure to support
the head and neck as much as
possible to keep them immo-
The next thing to do is to get
that person medical attention
as quickly as possible-- usual-
ly the best way is to call an
ambulance or rescue squad.
Most spinal cord injuries
are treated at hospitals desig-
nated as Acute Care Centers.
There are 10 in Florida, and
each has special equipment
and expert staff specially
trained in the treatment of
spinal cord injuries.
But no matter what kind of
treatment a person gets, once
the spinal cord is injured it
will not heal.
Spinal cord injuries are
irreversible- and expensive.
Dr. Bruce estimates that total
care over the lifetime of a
spinal cord injured person
costs about $1 million.
Avoidable accidents cause
most spinal cord injuries. It
only takes one careless mo-
ment And that one moment
can cost a lifetime.
