Five constitutional officers, take a ceremo-
nial oath early this week. All of the five were
re-elected to their post in last fall's election.
Only one-Sheriff Al Harrison-had to over-
come opposition in his re-election bid.
Five of Gulf county's six constitutional officers were sworn
into office for new terms Tuesday morning by Gulf county
Judge David Taunton. The only officer who failed to show up at
the installation ceremony, was Superintendent of Schools. B.

iff Al Harrison, Clerk of the Court Benny Lister, Tax Collector
Eda Ruth Taylor and Elections Supervisor Cora Sue Robinson
in taking their oath of office in the court room on the second
,4 floor of the courthouse.
All of the officials taking office, were hold-overs from a
previous term. Judge Taunton described the two lady officials
as the "older office holders" but later corrected himself to de-
scribe them as the "veteran" office holders. The two ladies were
the veterans, present, with each beginning their third four year
term. Both were unopposed for re-election.
Clerk of the Court Benny Lister had the least tenure of any
of the county officials. Lister is beginning his first full term. He
has completed two years Of an unexpired term of former clerk
Jerry Gates, who resigned in the middle of a term to seek elec-
tion to the state Insurance Commission post. Lister was elected
to serve out the remainder of the four years and was elected to
his first full term, unopposed, in the fall primaries.
Judge Taunton led the five officials, one by one, in repeating
their oath of office, before a gathering of relatives, supporters
and office personnel.
Each of the newly installed officials had a chance to say a
few words as they started on a new period in office, with each
expressing appreciation for their election and the trust ex-
pressed in their abilities by their supporters.
Colbert reminded Sheriff Harrison, "It's much easier to
start a ne( term after you have been unopposed than it is to
face opposition". Harrison was the only one of the six installed,
ceremonially, Tuesday, who had opposition during the elec-
tions. Harrison won a narrow re-election victory over his op-
ponent, after absentee votes had been counted and affirmed.

City Looks Before
Taking A Leap
Into A New Year
With two of their number ab-
sent from the first meeting of the
new year, the remaining quorum
spent nearly an hour Tuesday
night taking a look at the year
past and making a few .decisions
as to which direction to take off
in during the new year of business
here in Port St. Joe.
An examination of the
progress in the Police Department
took up a portion of the meeting,
with chief Carl Richter giving his
requested report on activities
within the department after his
first year of service in order to see
how the department is stacking
up now against prior months and
years before the change in police
chiefs was made.
The three members present
also discussed, briefly, continued
actions with attempting to persu-
ade. the Environmental Protec-
* tion Agency that the city's Waste-
water Treatment Plant was
actually improving the receiving
waters of its effluent, rather than
adding to the problem.
The City has been spending
some $30,000 per month for sev-
eral months in an effort to sub-
stantiate their claim there is only
improvement and not damage, re-
sulting from their present method
of doing things in a water treating
The engineering costs are con-
siderably less than the city would
have to spend in treatment to do
the things EPA wants done.
Plant manager Larry McArdle
says the plant Is meeting its target
of suspended solid and biode-
gradeable oxygen limits as set by
DER and have no problems along
these lines. "Other plants in the
area are having problems in these
areas arid we're actually a model
of what they should be doing to
correct this problem" McArdle
McArdle stresses the plant
has no problem with what it's
supposed to do, but DER is still
continually monitoring the
plant's operation and experi-
menting with ways to make its
A year end report Tuesday
night, from the police depart-
ment, showed a marked improve-
ment in the numbers reported by
the department, which reflect
their effectiveness and their ac-
The report showed that during
the past year, the department has
had an increase of 56.7% in activ-
ities and an increase in calls for
services of some 81.6%.
Chief Richter's report dis-
closed the local department had
3,776 calls for service last year.
'This was everything from keys
being locked in a car to murder,"
Chief Richter said. The depart-
ment had a clearance record of
87.8% while the national case
clearance average is 21%.
Richter said most of the credit
for the department's case clear-
ance record is due to living in a
small community. "In most cases,
we can tell you pretty much who
commits a particular crime be-
cause we know the people and be-
cause most crimes are committed
by the same people over and over
The largest single statistical
increase came in the arrests of
people dealing in and using nar-
cotics. 'We had an increase of
430% in arrests having to do with
the abuse of controlled substanc-
es," Richter said. The chief point-
ed out the problem is not going
away, either. "If anything, it [the
problem] is growing", he said.
STraffic infractions occupied a
considerable amount of the offi-
cers' time, according to the annu-
al report. During the past year,
the department Issued 519 traffic
warnings and participated in 304
traffic incidents, including auto-
Richter said all warnings are
now logged and if a person gets a
second warning, a case is made.
During the month of Decem-
ber, the department investigated
14 misdemeanors, four felonies
and 19 traffic infractions.
Keeping on top of a program
initiated recently to clear up old
accounts owed the city, the Com-
mission took a look at the bal-
ances still owed and found the list
of delinquent accounts and the
money owed is diminishing
steadily from repeated efforts to

Judge Taunton pointed out that the installation activities
were all ceremonial. "Actually, all these officers automatically
assumed their positions at midnight Monday, under Florida
law. What we're doing here has no legal consequence at all."
Legal consequence, or not, all the officers stood with a seri-
ous attitude while the oath of office was read to them and they
repeated it as if it were the most important thing to them at
that time. After the swearing in, each expressed that same atti-

The boat, the "Sunchaser",
owned by Ernest Kerr of Mishaw-
aka, Indiana, was under way in
the Waterway, when a fire appar-
ently started in the engine com-
partment and spread quickly to
the rest of the boat.
Kerr was operating the boat at
the time of the fire, with his
young son, Beau Smith Kerr as a
passenger. Kerr headed the boat
for shore when he discovered the
fire and ran the nose of the boat
up on the bank, where he and his
son jumped from the burning
The U. S. Coast Guard sent a
utility boat to the scene, but the
"Sunchaser" had been destroyed
by the time the Coast Guard ar-

aided the Coast Guard in battling
the blaze, but the boat burned to
the water line.
It Was A Safe Holiday Week
Gulf County's law enforce-
ment community reported there
were no serious accidents during
the New Year holiday to mar the
celebration of the new year.
With all law enforcement
units in the state on the alert dur-
ing the week end, accidents were
expected to take their toll from
the observance celebrations
which traditionally include
drinking. The Highway Patrol
had sent out alerts for drivers to
take care in order to prevent the
needless deaths of citizens
through driving under the in-
Here in Gulf county, there
were no accidents reported, either

that statement",. Richter said.

For Your Safe Driving Habits
We really don't know how to go about this, but we'd like to
express our thanks and congratulations to our people for being
so safe on our highways during the past year.
We realize there were two people killed on our streets and
the families of these two people are more than likely reminded
every day of their loss and are still grieving the death of their
loved ones. It is no consolation to them that there were two,
rather than eight or ten, who died on our highways last year.
Each can ask himself the question, 'Well, why wasn't it just
one? Or none?"
Unfortunately, it wasn't just one, or none. Still, our records
on the highways were so much better this year than last year, It
leaves cause for rejoicing, while we are still lamenting the loss
of the two who died.
We really don't know why the highway fatality total took
such a nosedive this past year. It could have been the slower
speed limit. It could have been the result of the heavy penalties
which have been levied in Gulf county for driving under the in-
fluence, or it could have been some safe driving habits by our
people. Whatever the cause, or the reason, we're thankful for it.
Maybe next year, we can lower this number to a big fat zero
and then everyone can rejoice at the growing safety on our
Cause Now Known
So, investigators have now officially come to the conclu-
sion the Pan Am 747 came down in Scotland because of an ex-
plosion from a bomb terrorists smuggled into the baggage com-
Terrorists who identified themselves as Iranian have taken
credit for the deed, but there are those who don't believe the
claim. Some officials say the claim is just another crank call
and can't be taken seriously. We'd say 258 lives is "seriously"
and anyone who would anonymously blow them to kingdom
come, even if in revenge for something, our government did to
them, can be classified in no better way than to say it is the
work of a crazy or demented person or persons.
We find it hard not to believe some Palestinian faction had
the responsibility for that action. We wouldn't be too hard to
convince that Yasser Arafat even knew about it. We'd wager
even better odds that old Yasser knew who did it. Now. that's
coming from someone who won't even buy a Florida lottery
And there stood the Palestinian polecat the other night in
Libya, meeting with our diplomats to talk about his latest an-
nouncement that he has renounced terrorism. He might be a
little more believable if the 747 hadn't been shot down.
But, old Yasser can still grin and bow and scrape and tell
. lies., Kesley said last week he would like to see Yasser decide to
grow"beard or shave during the new year. We'd like for some-
> onerteogive him a dictionary so he could learn the meaning of
the word truth. And, if there are any more 747's blown out of
the sky during the coming year, we hope our government has a
hand in teaching him the difference between terrorism and
Failure to Cooperate Could Cost
We see where Washington county has gone to enforced house
to house garbage pick-up throughout the county. We have it here
in Port St. Joe, but the remainder of the county has the option
to either subscribe to a private collection service or haul it to
collection points themselves.
We look for the day to come, possibly before this new year is
very old, when such requirements, plus separation of ingre-
dients in our waste, as well as a charge being placed on every-
one for the disposal of their solid waste, will be required of us.
It'll come sooner, rather than later, too, if people don't coop-
erate with the county in the handling of their solid waste. If it
is bagged and placed in dumpsters as requested, We might be
able to go along as we're doing for a while. If it isn't bagged and
placed in the dumpsters, the charge, when it comes, could well
be twice what it should be, when it is levied.

Dogs and Other Matters
Now friends. I'm about excited
today as a man can get. And to tell
you the truth my mind Is not on
work, my family, Mama and them
or writing this story. Tonight, I'm
a'buying me a dog. Now I know
what you're thinking my last
two dogs haven't exactly panned
out. But this is going to be differ-
ent. This is a "straight" coon dog.
He ain't going to run any trash.
He'll have a good nose, not too
cold; you can cast him, put him on
a track or work him down the
road; he'll bawl on the track and
chop at the tree; he'll run a tight
track and he'll make that coon go
,somewhere; and folks, when that
dog locks up on the tree you
might as well take off 'cause he's
there till you get the coon and
he's barking every breath. Listen,
I can almost hear him now.
I had a little trouble convinc-
ing Cathy that we needed another
dog. She felt like it was too much
money right after Christmas and
I had promised her a nice jacket
out of those post holiday spe-
cials. Don't worry boys, I quickly
explained to her how this dog was
different. He was a real "find". I
was lucky to get him at any price.
The fella that owned him was get-
ting on up in years and had been
sick and just had a dog more than
he could properly care for. If I
passed on this one, I'd regret it for
years. "Cathy, we can't afford to let
this deal go by. Why, we'd be fool-
ish not to buy this dog even if we
had a hundred others we could
always sell him for a lot more
than we're paying. Cathy, the dog
is already trained. All we have to
do is turn him loose and stand
back, he'll bring the coons out to
the road. This dog can be a Grand
Nite Champion I tell you he
can't miss he'll be the best dog
we've ever owned. I feel it."
She gave me the old you've-
your-gourd-look, "That's what you
said about Blue, and Clint before
him and Patsy before that and
Smokey before her and Sassy be-
fore him and..... .
I started to. get on her a little
for throwing off on my dogs. Be-
sides Sassy was an excellent
coon dog. She was a little hard to
catch, usually we'd hem her up
under the house when we wanted
to go hunting. Smokey might have
been the best dog of all, he was
really fixing to come around when
he got run over. Patsy was a good
dog, she was lust too old when I
got her. Clint was crazy. I got rid
of that dog myself. When you.
turned out he went, and I mean he
went. Usually we'd find him about

Do your ears still ring with the

If all of this describes your
symptoms, you have the New Year

Take it from a fellow sufferer,-
who has experienced the same

Did you have a sufficiency
over the New Year holidays? Did
you satisfy your football glut? Did
you get to see the Gators win a
game? Then you ought to be feel-
ing satisfied rather than sated.
But, even though I knew how
to -avoid this situation, I am no
less suffering the withdrawal of
too much football in too short a
time span, too.
But, in addition to the above-
mentioned problems, I am also
having problems writing this col-
umn. Nothing will come to mind.

worth telling; not even a tale or
two, stretched out of the propor-
tions of reality but with just

days is a tough assignment, I'll

I guess you could call the week
of preparation, "football 'aero-
bics". I was exposed to the mo-
tions, but I didn't get into the real
thing until Monday afternoon.
I must admit, I almost wasn't
ready for the big test. I watched
every bowl game last week right
up to the bitter end. I felt the
games were being played at night
so I would be prepared, physically
and mentally, when the Sugar
Bowl hit the airways.
I think they need to slip in at
least one more conditioning bowl
game in the week before the New
Year football marathon. It may be
because I need my glasses changed
or it may be because I have had
them changed too many times al-
ready. Anyhow, I almost stum-
bled at half time Monday night.

Some New Year's Resolutions
All of us, I think, at one time or another make New Year's res-
olutions. I've often wondered why.
One reason we do, I think, is because time is a measure of our
existence. That being true, and we know it is, why don't we make
birthday resolutions? That would be more of an accurate meas-
ure of our personal existence. ,
Another reason-this is purely speculation-is because on
New Year's Eve many of us gorge ourselves on food, drink, tobac-
co and such, so when New Year's Day gets here it's about time for
some relief. f
If half the resolutions I have made on previous New Year's
Eves had been kept I would probably be one of the richest,
healthiest persons in Port St. Joe.. .well, maybe on the 800 block
of Marvin Avenue.
Below are a few resolutions that should be inscribed in the
Men's all-time Hall of Fame. They have probably been resolved
more than any others in the history of mankind.
1) Quit smoking. Most men who seriously take this one on

Well, old Blue hunted close to
the truck all right he never left
the road. And he only had two
speeds, slowest and stopped. But
I told Cathy to look on the bright
side we weren't getting any
more calls from Blakely.
I could see that I wasn't con-

new dog. Look, we could buy the
dog and still get the new coat.

all but the most discerning eye.
And it cost one-tenth as much as
the real stuff. We'll buy the eheap

look good and we'll save enough
to almost pay for the new dog.
What a plan!
Cathy didn't go for it. I was
getting desperate. '"Well, honey,

Heart disease is the leading
cause of death in the United
States. Over 40 million Ameri-
cans probably are affected by
heart disease including hyper-
tension, coronary artery disease
The major risk factors for
heart disease are cigarette smok-
ing, elevated serum cholesterol
levels, and elevated blood pres-
sure. Secondary risk factors are
elevated triglycerides, heredity,
diet high in saturated fats, dia-
betes, obesity, lack of exercise
The foods in our diet will af-
fect the fat levels in the blood-
stream. Animal foods contain
saturated fats, which are solid at
room temperature and are found
in the marbling fat in the meat
and along the edge.
Dairy products made from
whole milk are also high in satu-
rated fats. The two plant oils high
in saturated fats are coconut oil
and palm kernel oil.
The unsaturated fats, mono-
unsaturated and polyunsaturat-
ed, are soft or liquid at room tem-
perature. Monounsaturated fats,
have no impact on blood choles-
terol levels include peanut oil,
peanuts, olive oil, and olives.

You should limit the amount
of foods high in cholesterol, a fat-
ty, waxy substance found in all
animal tissues. Sources high in
cholesterol are organ meats, egg
yolks, whole milk, cheeses and
beef, pork and lamb.
Guidelines for you and your
family are as follows:
1. Purchase meat, poultry,
veal and seafood with the least
amount of marbling andwvisible
fat,. Remove poultry skin prior to
cooking. Restrict egg yolks to
twice weekly including eggs used
in cooking. Egg whites are choles-
Increase consumption of fish
to 8 ounces per week. Recent re-
search using fish oils called EPA
(eicoso pentanic acid) found in
tuna, mackeral, salmon, herrings,
and blue fish shows cholesterol
lowering effects. New analysis of
shell fish including oysters,
clams, scallops, lobster, and crab
show it to be low in cholesterol
and saturated fat.
2. Use meat alternatives such
as dried beans, legumes, tofu
(soybean curd), and peanut but-
ter. These meat alternatives are
3. Polyunsaturated fats help
lower cholesterol levels. Safflower
oil has the most polyunsaturated
fat followed by sunflower, corn,

Atkins has strong connections
with the University of Florida. Af-
ter graduating from Calhoun
County High School in 1938, he
completed pre-dental training at
UF which granted him an A.A. de-
gree. He earned his D.D.S. at Emo-
ry University's School of Dentis-
try in 1945 and served three years
on the faculty at Emory before re-
turning to Blountstown, where he
followed his father in the practice
of general dentistry.
A past president of the Flori-
da Dental Association, Atkins
crusaded for establishment of the
dental college at UF's health cen-
ter. He helped initiate and has
continued to nourish the Col-
lege's Academy of One Hundred,
which has been an active support
group for more than 20 years.
Academy members recently an-
nounced the completion of a
$600,000 fund-raising effort,
which enabled the college to
qualify for $400,000 in state
matching funds and to establish
a million-dollar Eminent Scholar
chair in dentistry.
Atkins has won many awards,
including a commendation from
former Governor Reubin Askew
for dedicated service to his home

and the nation. The award was for

All 18-Year-Old Men Must
Sign Up for Selective Service
Joseph Frank, a resident and
city employee of Lafayette, Lousi-
-slana. celebrates his birthday on
'January 6. By turning 26, Frank
unknowingly establishes a mile-
stone for an agency of the U.S.
Government and earns himself a
minor place in history.
Eight years ago, Frank was
the first 18-year-old man to sign
up and be processed by the Se-
lective Service System under the-
continuous draft registration
program. From then on, however,
if Congress and the president or-
der a return to military conscrip-
tion under present law, Frank is
too old to be drafted. He becomes
the first man since Vietnam to
pass through the full, eight-year-
long period of draft eligibility
without being drafted.
Names and addresses of men
ages 18 through 25 are kept on
file by Selective Service for use in
a national emergency. If Con-

Occasionally, Social Security
has to contact people even if they
have arranged for direct deposit.
If they cannot locate the person,
they may have to stop sending out
his or her monthly check.
A change of address can be
reported by mail or phone. If it is
reported in writing, both the old
and new addresses, including zip
code, should be included, as well
as the Social Security claim num-
ber and the names of all family
members who are receiving mail

There has not been a draft
since 1973 when the U.S.
switched to an all-volunteer mili-
tary force. In 1975, the Selective
Service System was placed in
"deep standby" status and the re-
quirement for men to register was
suspended. But it wasn't long be-
fore several studies and commis-
sion reports noted that a draft
would be needed again if the
country ever became involved in a
major conflict. They predicted it
would take too long to get men
registered, classified, inducted,
and trained. In 1980, after the So-
viet invasion of Afghanistan,
President Carter revitalized the
Selective Service System and re-
instated the registration require-
ment for men. On January 5, 1981,
registration of 18-year-old men
began again and has continued.

gy, the System can begin issuing
thousands of induction orders via

With few exceptions, federal
law requires every man to register
with Selective Service within 30
days of his 18th birthday. (Men
have a 60-day window in which to
comply with the law: from 30 days
before to 30 days after turning
18). The process is simple. Men
furnish their names, addresses,
and telephone and Social Securi-
ty numbers by completing and
signing a short form at anypost

country around the time of his

Day, on January first, the Church .
looks to Luke's Gospel to recall
the circumcision and naming of
Jesus in Bethlehem. Little did the
Mohel, or circumciser, know that
he was shedding the first drop of
the Redeemer's blood. No one
could have known that through
covenant circumcision, and later
through baptism, our Savior was
identifying fully with humankind.
Now we are very close to the
sixth of January, the twelfth day
of Christmas. On this last day of
the festive season, the Church
looks to Matthew's Gospel for a
. great surprise, There, in a promi-
nent place, are the three wise
men from the East. In the center
of this Jewish story, about the
humble birth of a Jewish baby,
stand three Gentiles of wealth,
wisdom, and authority. They have
brought him gold as a sign of his
kingship, incense for his divinity,
and myrrh for his burial. We may
feel a bit burned out by the stress
of the world's Christmas, but we
are enlightened, along with the
three kings, as God's salvation
story is revealed to all who will
hear and see for themselves.
Having begun a new cycle of
worship and study, based on the
life, death, and resurrection of our
Redeemer, the Church moves on.

Vocabulary of the Sea Is
Evident In Today's Language
The rich colorful vocabulary of
the sea from generations past is
still a vibrant part of daily English
language. Most people do not
know the origins of words and
phrases that have become collo-
quial expressions, and time has
changed or distorted the mean-
ings. A few examples are below:
Discipline has always been
demanded by the taskmaster of
the sea. "He'll Let The Cat Out Of
The Bag", said today, is often fol-
lowed by an expletive. Six score
years ago on board a square rig-
ger, this utterance would have
brought chills to the spine, for
some poor soul had just commit-
ted an offense sufficiently grave to
extract the cat-of-nine-tails from
its canvas bag. The cat was made
of nine lengths of cord, each about
18 inches long with three knots at
the tip, fixed to the end of a larger
rope which was used as a handle.
Flogging, at the very least, would
cause severe wounds and could
cripple or even cause death. Only
Errol Flynn and fellow Hollywood
mariners have been able to shrug
off its effects. The United States
Congress prohibited the use of
the cat in 1850, and it was out-
lawed from the British Royal Navy
in 1879. In fact, the cat had fallen
into disuse in both fleets shortly
after the War of 1812. The brutal
instrument is also the basis of the
expression "Not Enough Room To
Swing A Cat". Obviously, the two-
foot cat, added to the length of the
fully extended arm of the flogger,
required good measure of working
room. A sailor's misdeeds were re-
corded daily, and punishment was
carried out the following Monday,
thus the birth of the expression
Sailors were considered a
rough lot and not to be trusted by
their superiors, the officers. Al-
though armed to the teeth when
the enemy was at hand, sailors
were prohibited from having
weapons at any other time. The
one exception to this rule was the
knife, which was an essential tool
for all seamen. Should, however,
the sailor draw his knife in anger,
he could lose his hand as speci-
fied by British Admiralty Law.
Thus the derivation of the expres-
sion "Hands Off'.
Maritime discipline was
harsh. Human rights were re-
stricted, and, as a result, specific'
shipboard havens developed. The
term "Scuttle Butt" evolved from
this background. There was a
cask (butt) with a square hole
(scuttle) cut in its bilge, depot on
deck to hold water for ready use.
On board ships where discipline
was strictly enforced, merchant
as well as war, the "Scuttle butt"
was one of the few places on deck
where sailors were at liberty to
talk, and, today the term is sy-
nonymous with gossip.
Mariners, being the chief pa-
trons of seaport pubs, were often
extended credit. A tally board was
kept of the pints and quarts that
a sailor consumed. The quarter-
master of the slip, who was re-
sponsible for having a full crew
for the next sailing, did well to re-
mind his charges to "Mind Your
P's and Q's". since this equated to
An individual who "Knows
The Ropes" today Is an expert
who know what to do. A century-
and-a-half ago, a novice sailor
knew more than the names and
uses of the primary ropes, and
his discharge papers were
marked, "Knows The Ropes."

Work Camp Should
Be In Operation
Bv MarcIh Powell
Joe Anderson and Woody
Powell, directors of activities at
the new forestry work camp being
opened here in Gulf county, re-
vealed some of the proposed activ-
ities of the camp to the Kiwanis
Powell said the camp would be
operated by the Forestry Service
and would utilize the inmates at
the camp to perform public tasks
such as road work, forestry man-
agement, clean-up after storms,
work in public parks, etc.
The camp, financed by the De-
partment of Corrections and op-
erated by the Forestry service,
will have 65 employees, supervis-
ing up to 200 inmates. The camp
will bring an annual payroll of
over $1 million to the Port St. Joe
area, as well as the supply pur-
chases made locally.
Powell said the inmates
would be utilized to build a por-
tion of the facilities like is being
done at new state prison facili-
ties. 'This allows us to get more
facility for the money available",
The Forestry Service officers
said the Gulf county facility
would be completed and in opera-
tion by March, 1989.
The inmates will work in a
four county area; Bay, Calhoun,
Liberty and Gulf. The staff at the
facility will also operate a com-
munity program through the high
school, where students will be
taught how to protect the environ-

Counselors for Elderly
TAX-AIDE is a free income-
tax counseling service for older
persons sponsored by the AARP

service is designed to help older
persons understand the various
tax forms and take advantage of
special provisions in the tax laws

Older Workers Are
Filling Labor Force
As the number of young en-
trants into the workforce decline
during the remainder of the cen-
tury, companies will have to look
increasingly to older workers to
solve their labor needs, according
to "Opportunity 2000," a new pub-
lication by the U.S. Labor Depart-
ment. Between now and the year
2000, the number o workers age
20-24 will decrease by 14 percent,
and workers 25-34 will decline by
14,6 percent. Meanwhile, the
number of workers above age 45
will increase significantly, the

ANIMAL BEAUTY CARE

Tender Care Can Increase the Enjoyment From Your Christmas Plant
office or other building. When
plants are grown indoors several
restrictions are imposed upon
them. Lack of sufficient light and
low humidity are probably the
most severe restrictions but tem-
peratures can also be a problem.
Many foliage plants prefer a
relatively strong, filtered or dif-
fused light. Places near windows
or light fixtures are usually suita-
ble, but avoid direct sunlight or
very dark areas of the home.
Flowering plants such as mums
and poinsettias will stand more
light than foliage plants and
should be placed in bright areas.
Watering is one of the chief
causes of failure with plants in
the home, especially for contain-
ers which don't have drainage
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
If you were the lucky recipient
of a dish garden, potted flower or
foliage plant this Christmas, you
are probably wondering how you
should care for your "living" gift.
Most homeowners kill their
plants with kindness -- literally
Over-watering and over
fertilizing often cause more prob-
lems than a lack of these essen-
tails for plant growth. Keep the
following ideas in mind and your
plants will be with you for many
years to come.
First of all, there is not such
thing as a house plant -- a plant
intended to grow inside a home,

house plants will require a thor-

ant to excess water. Overwatering
can kill the plant roots and In-
crease chance of disease and
eventually kill the entire plant.
Most plants grow well in tem-
peratures of 60 to 70 degrees.
Don't place the plants in drafty
locations where sudden changes
in temperature occur and don't
place plants close to radiators or
