Hunters -Want- Fuqua Is
SB Sending

Field, Back Rep. Here

The most controversial topic of conversation in Gulf
County these days, isn't football, it isn't whether or not the
United States should sever ties with El Salvadore, or the
national debt, or even the Dead Lakes issue.
The most vehement topic of conversation for the past
couple of weeks, has been the bombast of the mourning
dove hunters who are miffed over the closing of MK Ranch
property to their very popular sport, in favor of having a
duck preserve "in an area in which ducks don't raise or
This year, a duck shooting preserve was established
along a small creek which served as a watershed through
the property. The only trouble was, the area extended
over virtually the entire MK Ranch area, and particularly
into the grain-growing areas of the huge farm. Since the
duck hunting area was supervised by the Federal game
people, the area was off limits to everyone except duck
hunters using steel shot shells.
This effectively put the dove hunters out of business.
Tuesday, County Commission chairman, Everette
Owens and county attorney William J. Rish, both dove
hunters in addition to their sidelines as county officials,
announced negotiations were under way to have the area
formerly used for dove hunting, taken out of the duck
sanctuary. "There's no ducks in the vicinity of this
property and we have contacted the owner of the land in
Tennessee, in regards to dove hunters using it once again",
Owens said.
Owens said there was a good possibility arrangements
would be completed, allowing dove hunters back into the
fields before the first phase has been completed. "We
should be able to hunt the areas during the entire second
and third phases of the season with no problem", Owens

State Sounds Warning of

Suit Against Gulf County

Threatens Court Action If Jail Not Renovated

Gulf County has been warned that it faces the
possibility of a suit being filed against the county
by the state Fire Marshall, if certain changes
aren't made in the Gulf County Jail. Although the
warning, which came last week in the form of a
letter, didn't specify a date as to when the suit
would be filed, it indicated the action wouldn't be
long in coming.
The County has been successful in doing
enough renovation at the jail to satisfy the
Department of Corrections, but since the Fire
Marshall has entered the picture, things are
getting warmer.
County building inspector, Dewayne Manuel,
has been successful in proving to the Fire
Marshall that two-hour fire resistant walls exits in
the jail, "but that isn't the entire problem",
Manuel reported to the Commission Tuesday.
"The Fire Marshall requires the same fire rating
on five doors inside the complex and wants some
sort of fire retardant system installed. A
sprinkler system would be the most economical
method of meeting their requirements", he said.
Commissioner Doug Birmingham remarked
he was in favor of going to court with the Fire
Marshall. "I live in a nice home. It isn't plush, but
it's adequate to make us comfortable. We don't

have a sprinkler system in it, so my children
aren't as well protected as the Fire Marshall
wants us to make prisoners."
Birmingham, who was not in favor of bowing
down to the dictates of the state in regards to
changes at the jail said, "I think we should take
precautions to protect the prisoners in our jail and

.estimated it would cost between $5,000 and $10,000.
Attorney Rish said he had been in contact with
the State Attorney's office, which would be in
charge of any legal action the state might take
against the county and reported, "They don't want
to go to court with Gulf County. They wart us to
reach a reasonable solution in a reasonable

method of meeting their requirements." Manuel

keep them reasonably comfortable but I can't
believe our people will stand still for having to
work every day to pay taxes to pay for housing
prisoners in better accommodations than they can
afford for their own families."
Manuel named five doors which would have to
be changed to two-hour fire ratings and two doors
which have to be installed, to meet the Fire
Marshall's demands. Manuel said it was his
impression, after meeting with the Fire Mar-
shall's inspector, installation of a sprinkler system
would be the county's easiest way out. Manuel said
he had no definite prices onsuch a system, but

amount of time and are willing to work with us."
Rish warned, however, "The Attorney Gen-
eral warns that he has no alternative but to file
suit if a life threatening situation isn't corrected-as
the Fire Marshall has directed."
Chairman Owens said he also talked with the
inspector and said, "I told him to do what he
thought he had to do since we were going to :-d

testing programs on those who attend.
"We're gearing up to handle at least a 1,000

"This is the first time such a program

Port St. Joe will have its first Health
Fair Saturday, offering free physical
examinations to those who attend, perform-
edbyt'rained people and designed to get an
accurate picture of the physical condition of
those who participate.
The entire procedure is free of charge,
with the exception of an $8.00 charge made
for a complete blood chemistry analysis.
Port St. Joe's program is the latest in a
number of Health Fairs which, have been
held throughout the Panhandle during the
past month. The programs are sponsored
nationally by the Prudential Insurance
Company and are approved, sponsored and
in many instances, performed by local
medical facilities. Here in Port St. Joe, the
Health Fair has the approval, the coopera-
tion and the participation of the medical
community, Gulf Pines Hospital and St.
Joseph Bay Care Center. Stiles Brown is the
local coordinator of the one day program.
The Fair will be held in the Port St. Joe
High School, beginning Saturday morning at
10:00 a.m., and continuing until 3:00 p.m.
This will be no cursory examination.
Those who come for the examinations will
have their height and weight checked as
well as testing for blood pressure, vision,
hearing, anemia and glaucoma. A podiatrist
will also be at the Fair to give attention to
foot problems.
For the ladies, Pap smear tests will be
offered, plus instruction in breast self-
examination. Materials will be supplied for
self application for colon-rectal cancer
testing. This is a new procedure recently
given much publicity and will be available
to those who attend the fair.
A small charge of $8.00 will be made for
a complete blood chemistry analysis. Those

Plans Are Drawn for Park

The County Commission
received preliminary plans
for development of the aban-
doned Corps of Engineers
property at White City, Tues-
day, presented by Wayne
Childers, chairman of a
committee appointed by the
Board several months ago to

pursue the acquisition of
surplus government property
in the county.
The White City property
was abandoned the first of
the year by the Corps, after
serving as a repair and
dredging depot for several
years. Only recently, the

eight acre site was declared
surplus and a decision is now
being made as to what to do
with the property.
In order to be eligible to
receive ownership of the
property, free of charge, the
county must have plans for
developing it as a recrea-

tional site.
These tentative plans were
what Childers presented to
the Board Tuesday. Award of
ownership of the land to Gulf
County is not something
which might happen tomor-

would guess that Mixson's country
shrewdness is coming to the
surface now that it is only a
short while until we select a new
Governor for our state and he is
eligible to run.
Although 'Mixson has never
said in public, so far 'as we have
read or heard, chances are probab-
ly good that he will be a candidate.
Since he has openly opposed a
Governor who is not all that well
thought of up here in the other
Florida, we are just about certain
he is just before tossing his
semi-cowboy hat into the ring.
The Lieutenant Governor has
been told time and again the only
reason people voted for the Gra-
ham ticket in this part of the state
was because Mixson was the
running mate. They (including this
writer) had much rather have cast
their vote for a ticket which read
the other way around or eliminated
Graham altogether.
In our opinion, Mixson made
about the most effective announce-
ment of his candidacy a candidate
could make. Everyone understands
a tax cut and everyone knows it is
the consumer who pays any
tax-even a corporate tax.

Wouldn't this hasten the dam-
age done to a, person, if the
cigarettes were enlarged enough to
accommodate the warning mes-
sage? .., .. ..
There is also the problem of
inspecting the cigarettes, to see
they contain the mandated mes-
sage. Marijuana cigarettes, as we
all know, are now illegal to make,
possess, or sell. If a person is
breaking the law making a cigar-
ette, and isn't likely going to roll
one in public, how are we going to
inspect the ones which are made,
against the law, to see whether or
not they comply with the law in
containing the warning message?
This law sounds about as easy
to enforce as the one recently put
into force in Florida, requiring all
sport fishermen to have a license if
they sell their surplus catch to their
friends and neighbors.
Possibly the Senator's law was
introduced in jest, but the salt
water fish sale law was passed in
dead seriousness.

We thought it was kinda
cute watching Bruno chase
all the other dogs out of our
yard. A little later, however,
he expanded his ban to all
men in uniforms. He then
grew to hate loud trucks and
people on wheels of any kind.

Bruno was a problem. It
was not too serious until the
day he treed the dog-catcher.
No one had to tell me that
something had to be done
with Bruno. "Chain that dog
or I'll have to take him!" she
stated, standing atop her
little green truck.
"Yes 'um," I replied meek-

I tried to give Bruno away.
There were no takers. I took
him to Panama City and let
him out. He beat me home.
My son and I sneaked him
aboard a freighter bound for
Lima, Peru and he jumped
ship in Pensacola and hitch-
ed a ride home. I was at the
end of my chain so I asked a
close friend what I should do.
"Buy a box of those .22
shells and shoot the dog!" he
responded immediately.
"Shoot the dog?" I asked,
unbelieving. "Are you out of

interesting situation.
I see where the emergency
nuclear bunker has been completed
for the Governor of Florida to hide in,
should there be a nuclear attack on
the Ulited States. The new bunker
wvas completed recently and stocked
for the Governor and supposedly his
family, at the state's expense.
While the article didn't say, if I
were Governor when a nuclear attack
hit the state, I would take my family
with me to the safe bunker. In all
likelihood, you would too.
Already the bunker has been
tested. It was initiated during a
hurricane watch and found to work
very well. Still, the bunker was no
doubt built for a more serious test and
protection from a far more destruc-
live force than a hurricane.
I had an aunt in Oklahoma who
had a similar storm cellar out in her
back yard. Although it wasn't as large
as the Governor's operations shelter,
it was stocked with food, water,
candies, etc., just like the Governor's.

It was for desperate situations,\ and
she considered a storm as desperate a
situation as you can get.
As a matter of fact, an under-
ground storm shelter was a common

thing in Oklahoma and likely still is.
Not everybody is as afraid of
inclement weather as my aunt was, so
the other storm shelters are probably
not as well stocked.

I'M WONDERING how the Gov-
ernor is going to get to his cellar when
and if a nuclear attack is threatened
or announced as being on the way.
The shelter is located in DeFuniak

announced as being on the way, they
tell us we have about 20 mir utes to
brace ourselves and get ready for the
big boom, provided the attack is
coming via missile. That doesn't give
the Governor much time to get to Ns
underground home away from hole
in DeFuniak Springs.
As a matter of fact, a 20 minute,
100 mile trip to DeFuniak Springs
would probably scare me more than

his concrete quarters? If I were a
resident of Walton County, in the
vicinity of the Governor's cement
compound, I would not care if it was
reserved for the Governor, I would
consider it fair game for whoever
could get there first.
There are probably more than a
few residents of Walton County who
would head straight for the bunker if a
nuclear attack warning was sounded.

They might leave

room for the

government wanting to protect the
chief executive. You would need
somebody in command at such a time,
more so than now. As a matter of fact,
the Governor was off in Japan the last
of last week, and the state operated
just as if he were sitting in his office.
If the State wants to protect the
Governor in such a time, it would
seem to me such a shelter would stand
a better chance of protecting the
Governor if it were where the
Governor was.
I'm sure the people of Walton
County appreciate the state govern-
ment providing them with a safe
nuclear bomb shelter. As near as they
are to Eglin Field, it should make
them feel a little better knowing they
have some sort of shelter in case the
man at the trigger at the other end of
the nuclear missile were to dial in one
or omit one number when program-
ming his course for the missile. It
wouldn't have to be off but a gnat's

hair at origin to miss Eglin by several
miles on this end just enough to
end up in Walton County.
IN THE MEANTIME the shelter
is home to Bob Smith, who runs the
Civil Defense organization for north-
west Florida. He has Gulf County on
his list and makes regular visits here,
when he isn't holed up in his
underground bunker, safe and snug as
a bug in a rug.
They tell me there is another of
these things over near Starke for the
Lieutenant Governor to occupy in
case of a nuclear disaster.,
Now, isn't that just like the
government? Why not send Lieuten-
ant Governor Wayne Mixson to the
DeFuniak Springs shelter, where he
will be near home and the Governor to
Starke, where he won't be farther
from home, like he would be at
DeFuniak Springs?
If the time ever comes for the
Governor to head for his shelter, I'm
going to stop where I am and start
digging a big, big hole in the ground.
Then I'm crawling in it.

The Tax Collector said the
county was receiving compu-

convenience to the public.
"Also we need to re-arrange
the counters to give more

area", Ms. Taylor said.
Taylor also notified the
Board they owned two or
three tax deeds which were
maturing in a short while.
"I'm doing everything pos-
sible to contact the people
involved and make sure
everything has been done
which must be done before
you make the decision on
whether or not to foreclose on
the deeds."
The Tax Collector said she
had been successful in col-

quent tax deeds, but she had
been unable to get the two or
three satisfied.

There are still changes
coming in the nation's tele-
phone system which will not
be too popular with the
subscribers, Pat Mahoney,
an executive with St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph
Company told the Rotary
Club last Thursday.
Since de-regulation consid-
erable changes are due in the
method of charging for ser-
vices, Mahoney said. He
predicted local service, rates
could go to $20.00 to $25.00
under the new charging
methods. "In the past, char-
ges from long distance tolls
have paid for part of the local
service, but that will be the
case no longer in about a
year or two", he said.
Mahoney said long distance
charges would take a notice-
able drop and if a person
makes around $75.00 worth of
long distance calls a month,
his telephone bill should
remain about the same.
Mahoney said competition
from other long distance
firms is causing AT&T to
drop its long distance rates,
"But you'll pay for it in other
places", he said.
In just a short while
telephone users will see a
$2.00 to $3.00 fee on their
phone bills for a users' fee,
which will take up part of the
inequities now in the tele-
phone billing methods, but
continuing changes over the
next four years will change
the looks of your telephone
bill dramatically.

Hunter's Safety

Course Offered

The Gulf County Coopera-
tive Extension Service in
conjunction with the Wewa-
hitchka Community Services
is offering a Hunter's Safety
Course. The course will con-
vene Monday, October 17, at
Wewahitchka High School at
6:00 P.M., C.S.T.
The primary purpose of the
course is to teach proper gun
handling in circumstances
relating to hunting. However,

more than that, it offers the
opportunity for a youngster
or adult to become familiar
with the fundamentals of
firearms handling and fire-
arms safety while at the
same time, opening the possi-
bility of an interesting, and
challenging hobby.
The course includes a
minimum of 12 hours of
classroom time, including
firearms law and Florida's
wildlife code, safety gun
handling, firearm and cart-
ridge nomenclature, hunting
ethics, wildlife identification
and management, survival,
field first aid, marksman-
ship, fundamentals of ar-
chery, and blackpowder fire-
arms use.
Some parents may feel
uneasy about allowing their
children to use firearms, but
should be equally concerned
that children learn the pro-
per respect and use, of

Gators Meet

FAMU Friday
After a week off to re-group
their forces, the Wewahitch-
ka Gators will take to the
gridiron again Friday night.
The Gators will be at home
to FAMU High of Tallahas-
see, in their third home game
of the season.
Game time is 8:00 p.m.,
Central time.

The Sharks scored twice
more in the second period,
once on an Apalachicola
fumble in the end zone, which
was covered by Jim Norton
and once on a three yard run
by Josh Jenkins.
The Sharks then turned the
game over to the bench for
the rest of the game to keep
from running the score up.
Even so, with Jenkins in
for a breather play in the
third period, he took off
through the middle of the line
for a 12 yard gallop and the
Chris Butts kicked four
extra points and missed two
for the night.
There's no telling how
many points the Sharks could
have put on the board, but, as
Coach Shaw Maddox said,
"We tried to hold it down.
There was no use beating
their kitds to death."
After being out a week with
an injured ankle, Josh Jen-
kins made an auspicious
return, carrying the ball 18
times for 109 yards and two

Mark Pelt Is Crowned

Wewa's Beauty Queen

The Womanless Beauty
Contest, Part II, is now
history. As in any great
competition the victory was
not decided until the final
moment, and any one of a
lovely group of beauties
could have taken the crown.
But only one can wear the
crown, and on this night that
one was the voluptuous Mar-
sha, as presented by Wewa
businessman, Mark Pelt.
Displaying a fine singing
voice, and anything else the
crowd cared to see, Mark
was the hometown choice
and carried the ballots of our
celebrity panel of judges:
Nell Bandjough, Betty Hol-
loway, Barbara Shirley, Jan
Traylor, and Sara Jo Wooten.
First runner-up was the
indomitable John Linton, ap-
pearing as Loretta Skin and
performing "You 'Ain't
Woman Enough To Take My
Man" in counter-point to
Gene Hanlon's Genie, a spir-
ited harmonica player and
"other woman". The object
of their affection was, of
course, Gulf County's own
Sheriff Ken Murphy, a good
sport and a fine figure of a
Second runner-up was the
high-stepping Magic Moves,
otherwise known as Mel
Magidson. Always a crowd
pleaser, he teamed with "Lo-
retta" and a marvelous Little
Egypt, played by the popular
"girl next door", Fred Allen,
to do an energetic musical
number. Shadilene was third
runner-up this October night,
and "The Stripper" never
looked better than when
performed by Wendell Camp-
bell, the box plant beauty.
The fifth trophy went to
Wewa's talented Floyd Dic-
kens, as he danced and
performed as Jane, a senior
citizen delight. Receiving
Honorable Mention were
Fred Kleeb, who sang a
splendid "I'm Nobody's
Baby Now"; Kevin Byrne,
who led the audience in a
Happy Birthday tribute tb his
mother-in-law; Dennis Sulli-
van, singing a wonderful
song he had written himself;
and Bill Lamar, who per-
formed a marvelous Rag-
gedy Ann skit that was a
show stopper. Also, Captain
John Sealey, receiving thun-
derous applause in his basic
black ensemble; Eddie Mont-
gomery, re-creating his "Shy
Edwina" character (this
time due to splitting a seam

prior to show time); and
Coleman "Always a Lady"
Kirkland, a favorite with the
Wewa crowd. ,
The winners received
beautiful trophies and mag-
nificent bouquets of roses,
donated by Mr. and Mrs.
Ernie Hendricks. The audi-
ence was treated to a rousing
dance routine lead by Sharon
Gaskin, owner of The Fitness
Center. The routine was, in
fact, described as breath
taking by many of the
contestants, due to them
being breathless at its con-
clusion. In addition, the
Murphy Girls, Cindy Griffith
and Janet Hogan, gave a
sterling performance, play-
ing every song in their

repertoire and humming a
few new ones due to the show
starting a little late.
Mrs. Annie Gaskin was
beautiful as she presented
the trophies to the winners
and congratulated all of the
contestants participating in
this fund-raising event for
the Gulf County Senior Citi-
zens Association.
The Association wishes to
thank all of the sponsors of
the contest, for without their
support the event could not
take place. Our appreciation

Thank you to all the friends
who gave to us while our
loved one was sick. We would
love to thank you all per-
sonally, but that would be
impossible. Special thanks to
all the men who work at St.
Joe Paper Co. who took up
money and gave it us. You all
can't possibly know how
much it was appreciated. We
will always have a special
place in our hearts for you
and others who gave money.
We will never know who they
were. Thank you for the food
that was brought to the
house, cards, phone calls in
our hours of grief. Also thank
you to the nurses at Gulf

were so kind and caring.
We loved Harley so much

took him home to heaven to
be with Him.

Make S.S. Reports Clear 1T



from Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School


People who make reports
on behalf of Social Security
beneficiaries should use care
to make sure the reports are
clear and cannot be misinter-
preted, Ann R. Kinard, Social
Security field representative
for Gulf County, said recent-
A report that is wrongly
interpreted can often cause
mistakes. For example, a
hospital or nursing home
reports a person's date of
discharge as DOD, which a
Social Security employee be-
lieves stands for "date of
.death". As a result, the
person's benefits are stop-
ped. The person is put to
great inconvenience in get-
ting the system to believe he
or she is still alive.
Another situation that
arises is that a person who
has been getting checks on
behalf of another dies. The
report is given in such a way
that it appears that the

If you're like most people, you prob-
ably don't pin down the financial details of
buying a new or used car until after you've
picked it out; And test-driven it. And fallen in
love with it.
At Florida National Bank, we'd like you
to consider the advantages of putting your
new car buying habits in reverse: Buckling
up your financing rst.
That way, you'll be all set to drive a
hard bargain before you even get out to the
showroom floor. Because you'll not only have
a clear idea of how much you want to spend,
you'll have approval on that money in ad-
vance. And if you've ever been involved

in a new car deal, you know that "cash-in-
hand" means bargaining power.
You simply stop by your neighborhood
Florida National office. We'll go over your
budget with you, quote you a competitive
interest rate and work out a comfortable
monthly payment schedule, Then, well
approve your loan in advance and formalize
everything once you get your car. Of course,
you're under no obligation until you sign.
So before you drive your bargain,
buckle up your financing at Florida
National Bank.
When you think about it, there's no
safer, smarter way to buy a car.

You Can Enjoy Plants If Cared for Properly

County Extension Director
Regardless of where you
live, you can enjoy house
plants providing you care for
them properly. Proper wa-
tering is one of the most
important and certainly most
misunderstood factors in
house plant culture.
Careless watering kills
house plants faster than just
about anything else. So, I will
discuss some of the dangers
) of overwatering. I will also
offer some tips on how to tell
when your plants need water
and explain how much you
should give them. My infor-
mation for this article was
provided by Extension Horti-
culturist Dr. Robert Black.
Most-plants grow very well
in a soil that's kept moist, but
not continually saturated
with water. Plants need air,
as well as water. Too much
water can suffocate plant
roots and cause them to rot.

needs water, just poke your
finger into the soil to a depth
of about one inch. If it feels
moist, water isn't needed. If
the soil feels dry and crumb-
ly, the plant probably could
use some additional mois-
Most plants should receive
applications of lukewarm

Overwatering also causes
severe leaf drop.
How much you water and
how often will vary consider-
ably, depending on the type
of plant you're growing, its
size and stage of growth, the
potting soil, and the size and
kind of container.
One of the best guides to
proper *ater is the feel of the
soil. As I said, it's best to
keep the soil moist, but not
wet. To determine if a plant

water. Except during very
cold weather, tap water is
fine. Water your plants thor-
oughly, applying enough to
moisten the soil all the way to
the bottom of the pot.
If a plant is growing in a
container which has drain-
age holes, place the pot in a

saucer or tray, and apply
water until you see excess
draining out of the bottom.
After you are sure that all the
excess has drained out, dis-
card the water that has
collected in the saucer. Ne-
ver leave the pot standing in
this excess.
When using a container

that lacks drainage holes,
you should put a layer of
coarse gravel in the bottom
before adding potting soil.
This will provide space for
.excess water to collect, and
help prevent the root rot
problem'we mentioned earli-
er. A good way to check the
moisture content of such a

FSU's Summer Music Theatre


Florida State University's
summer music theatre pro-
gram will relocate from its
Jekyll Island, Ga., facilities
to Panama City, the dean of
the FSU School of Theatre
has announced.
The music theatre pro-
gram, connected with the
successful Jekyll Island Mu-
sic Theatre for the last eight
years, gives professional
training to students from
around the country. Each
nine-week summer season
offers three Broadway musi-
cals in repertory.
FSU theatre dean Gil La-
zier said that Panama City is
an ideal environment, close
to Tallahassee, within a
major Florida tourist area.
He added that "the tremen-
dous enthusiasm" of the
city's business and cultural
community was an import-
ant factor in the decision to
"We'll also be able to
increase the number of cour-
s6 offerings and make it
possible for summer theatre
students to benefit from
contact with more FSU thea-
tre faculty," he said.
Lazier noted that Dr. Larry
Bland, dean of the FSU
Panama City campus, has
worked closely with him in
coordinating the relocation

Program to Panama

"The Panama City campus
is adjacent to Gulf Coast
Community College and its
excellent fine arts complex,"
said Lazier. "Dr. Larry
Tyree, president of the col-
lege, has offered Gulf Coast's
indoor theatre as well as
dormitory facilities for the
theatre program's use."
State Senator Dempsey
Barron said that bringing the
music theatre program to the
campus-by-the-bay "shows
how Florida State continues
to enhance the area's cultur-
al and business life. Not only

area residents but our sum-
mer visitors from all over the
country will be able to enjoy
and support this talented
troupe," he added.
Bland said he was "excited
about the new program be-
cause, among other benefits,
the high visibility of a theatre
program would enhance the
total academic program at
the Panama City campus."
Lazier said that the pro-
gram will continue to provide
wholesome family entertain-
ment- the finest Broadway
musicals. "And of course we
intend to keep our reputation

container is to lay it on its
side in a sink, plant and all.
Leave it in this position long
enough for all excess water
to drain out. And return it to
its upright position.
In summary, maintaining
proper soil moisture for
house plants isn't difficult.
But it does require some
common sense and restraint.
We honestly can't over-
emphasize that overwatering
is the most common cause of

failure with house plants. Too
little moisture also can be.
harmful. So you should check -
the condition of the soil
around your plants frequent-
ly. Obviously, we can't give
you a specific watering sche-
dule, because so many fac-
tors influence how often and:
how much water your plants
will need. It's up to you to
keep a close check on the
condiLton of the soil around
each of your plants.
