Tuesday night, with Chairman Doug Birm-
ingham off to Washington, D.C. on vacation,
and Nathan Peters, Jr., acting as chairman,
Creamer put a motion on the floor to up the
beach driving permit fees from $50.00 to
$500.00 for out-of-county residents. Local per-
mit fees would remain the same.
"Bay and Franklin counties will not allow
driving on their beaches, so their people load
up their four wheelers and come over here to

privilege," the Commissioner claimed, in sup-
port of his $500 permit proposal.
Commissioner Parker felt the county would
get into a suit with such a fee structure and at-
torney William J. Rish said the county may.
have problems justifying such a difference in
the fees.
Creamer persisted, however, and got Com-
missioner Jimmy Gortman to second his mo-
tion. Gortman, too, felt it wasn't right to allow
out-of-county people to cause problems by
driving on the beaches.

Harrison was called to Tallahassee by Governor Bob Marti-
nez last Wednesday after he had made the switch in party af-
filiation. When he arrived in Tallahassee, the Governor gave
the Gulf County Sheriff an opportunity to join several others,
making the switch that day, participating in a state-wide
press conference.
"I had been thinking about it for a long. time and consid-
ered it strongly," Harrison said Tuesday, but apparently he
hadn't gotten, around to the legal procedure until this past
Sheriff Harrison said, "I'm still the same old conservative
Al Harrison I have always been. The Democratic party is just
no longer conservative in its thinking and I couldn't stay with
something which didn't reflect my values any longer."

Late last week, Harrison received a call from the White
House, inviting him to join 20 other public servants from Flor-
ida who had made the switch, in a visit Monday with the Pres-
o, ident of the United States.
"I had never received a call from the White House before
and probably never will again, so I went," he said Tuesday.
"President Bush told us how he had been a Democrat, also,
and had been forced to change because of changing philoso-
phy in Democratic leadership," Harrison added.
"It was an experience I will never forget. At first, I started
not to go, but I called my daddy and told him about the invi-
tation and he said, 'son, you owe it to yourself to go', and so I
did. It was a quick trip, but I'm glad I followed my daddy's ad-
vice," Sheriff Harrison said.

Mystery Picture Remains An Unsolved Puzzle

Chief of Police Carl Richter
said Wednesday there are no new
developments in the case of the
mysterious picture found last
week, showing two teen agers,
bound and gagged, lying in a
white van.
"W'eare continuing to stay on
top. of this thing until we find out
what is going on," Richter said.
'We've checked out several leads,
but all of them- led nowhere," he
Richter said the photo has
been incorporated in a flyer
, I which is being circulated nation-
wide, in an attempt to identify
the youths and locate them. 'We
hope we get lucky," the Chief
said. 'We need to know what is
going on here."
The photo in question was
found lying on the parking lot of
a convenience store here in Port
St. Joe two weeks ago. The photo
was thought to have been
dropped from a white van, which
had been parked in the vicinity a

Sentencing Today
Joseph Demotropoulas will
be sentenced today on a charge
of second degree murder, accord-
ing to the local office of the as-
sistant state attorney.
Demotropoulas was found
guilty of murder in the second
degree nearly two weeks ago, in
the April shooting of Douglas
Charles Kirby at the Overstreet
home of Demotropoulas. The
shooting ended a night of drink-
ing, target practice with pistols
and the eventual outbreak of an
agrument between the two.
Demotropoulas has been
awaiting sentence until the court
could conduct a pre-sentence in-
vestigation. He could receive up
to 30 years in the state prison,
but a more realistic supposition
. is that he will receive a term of
from 12 to 17 years.

Police had no clues to the

Identy of the youths, the van, or
who was driving the van. Chief
Richter said last week, they

aren't even sure a crime has been
committed, but they are bending
every effort to find out.

This car struck Cypress Creek bridge injuring its two passengers.

Young Man

Is Critical

After Wreck
One young man is in critical
condition and another was treat-

ed and released after a crash Sat-
urday at 9:30 p.m., at Cypress
Creek Bridge on Highway 71.
The Florida Highway Patrol
said Antonio Baker, 17, of Wewa-
hitchka is in critical condition in
a Bay County hospital and Scot-
tie Ash, 15, of Panama City, was
treated at Gulf Pines and re-
leased after 'their small foreign
car struck a bridge abutment.

Ash was driving the late mod-
el Isuzu, when it struck the edge
of the bridge guardrail. The vehi-
cle was southbound at the time
of the accident.
The accident was investigated
by Florida Highway Patrol troop-
ers Howell and Jordan, but no
charges had been filed at press
time yesterday at noon. The
crash is still under investigation.

Property Appraiser

Sends $430,999,314

Roll to State DOC

Gulf County was worth more
on January 1, this year, than it
was on January 1 of last year,. ac-
cording to figures released from
the office of Property Appraiser,
Kesley Colbert this week.
Colbert certified his adjusted
taxable value and delivered the
rolls to the Department of Reve-
nue in Tallahassee for certifica-
tion this week. The Department
of Revenue has been active in
making changes in property val-
ues in the county for the past
several years, with the current
year being one of those years of
'"We've had quite a bit of new
personal property come on the
rolls, too, which has Increased
them considerably. Too, we con-
tinue to have a steady growth of
construction, especially in our
beaches area causing those prop-
erty values to rise," Colbert said.
Total property values in Gulf
county climbed by some $40 mil-
lion, according to the list the
Property Appraiser took to Talla-
hassee Monday.
This year's taxable property
valuations were set at
$430,999,312. Last year's values
were pegged at $390,115,344.
Colbert said property owners
in the county are eligible for
some $63.6 million in homestead
exemptions. Property owned by
various government agencies out-
strip homestead exemptions by

some $5 million, however. Gov-
ernment property, exempt from
taxes totals $78,270,887. Other
exempt property, which includes
properties such as churches,
non-profit, tax exempt agencies,
etc., earned $26,248,000 in ex-
Colbert said it normally takes
the Department of Revenue from
two to three weeks to certify a
roll. After the roll is certified as
correct, Work on the several gov-
ernment agency budgets within
the county will begin.

All Government
Offices Closing
for the Holiday
All government services in
Port St. Joe will be observing a
holiday Tuesday of next week, as
the nation observes the July
Fourth holiday.
The Gulf County Courthouse,
U.S. Postoffice, all state offices
and the City Hall will be closed
for the day.
In Port St. Joe, citizens are
reminded the regular Tuesday
morning garbage pick-up service
will not be made, as sanitary per-
sonnel will be taking a holiday.
Emergency water and sewer
problems will be handled by an
on-call crew, by making a call for
any emergency service to the Po-
lice Department.

The July Fourth holiday will be marked by a giant fire-
works display here in Port St. Joe Tuesday night. The dis-
play will be held at the Florida National Bank park on the
edge of St. Joseph Bay, at the west end of Fifth Street.
The fireworks display
has become a tradition here
in Port St. Joe, with the .1K 1R
Volunteer Fire Department I
setting off the giant crack-
ers and rockets for the en-
joyment of the huge crowd '
of spectators which usually --
gathers at dusk to witness '
the display in all its glory.
Feeling that July Fourth
just isn't celebrated proper-
ly without fireworks, and
realizing the danger of the
pyrotechnics to children,
the City Commission set up
an item in its budget sever-
al years ago to put on the
large display and have con- C |
tinued the practice ever
The display will begin at
dark, which will be around

8:45 p.m. The fireworks will be aimed out over the Bay, to
reduce the danger to people and property, but still allow
spectators a full view of the display.
Fire Department personnel have asked that all specta-
tors remain on the east side of Baltzell Avenue to lessen the
danger from the exploding fireworks.
The display is. expected to last for -at least 30 minutes
and will .be highlighted .by an American Flag being depicted
by d fireworks arrangement as the finale of the show.
The display is free of charge .and everyone is invited to
attend: -

No Solution

We would be devastated if one of our young grandchildren
-were to be a victim of a gunshot. wound or death as several
young children have been in Florida in recent months. We
would find that situation very hard to handle and would very
likely fall to function properly for a long period of: time. if-we
ever did get over it. -- .
S,the. wounding or death by gunshot wounds isn't a sub-
Ject we-can pass off lightly. -.
Still, we have problems with the solution our Legislature.
came up with to handle this situation which they promulgated
to protect these. young and innocent children. We don't believe
it will add to the safekeeping of these little kids one iota.
When we read of one .of these accidents, we have to ask our-
selves what kind of parent or adult would leave a gun of any
sort readily accessible to the little ones. Knowing they have a
propensity to find what they are not supposed to find and to
gain access to those things which are supposed to be safely out
of their reach, it seems a stupid thing to do to leave a loaded
gun in the house in the first-place and to leave it in a drawer,
under a pillow, under the bed or on a shelf--even though it is a
high one-in the second place. .
No amount of' legislation or a box full of laws is going to
make these adults use -adult sense in how and where to store
their hand guns. That is the whole problem. If the adults would
take more care and consider the. inquisitive little hands just
. itching- for something new to explore, the firearms would be
rendered useless while they are stored in the house, in the
storage room, in the car, or wherever.
While wee're on the subject, we're wondering what branch of
the law enforcement community Is going to be charged with go-
ing into every house, whether or not they own a gun permit,
and inspect all the firearms for safe storage practices? Do you
know any other way to insure there is a trigger lock on a gun,
or it's placed in a locked box or drawer, or that: it is otherwise
rendered useless Without-some preparation? .
Like so many other laws, we believe.this one is useless.:.
The whole problem is with stupid .and unthinking adults
and, unfortunately, no amount of legislation in the world is go-
ing to change this. .

Take a Good Look
Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison has become the.latest pub-
lic official to desert the Democratic party and be welcomed into
"the Republican ranks. -Harrison is the 25th of 67 county Sher-
iffs In Florida to make this move, so it isn't as if hb is a unique
.species in this regard.
Nor are Sheriffs the only ones changing. Public servants by
the dozens are. making the move and-in so doing, are drawing
the barbed words of the Democrats.
SSheriff Harrison has parroted the reasons of the other pub-
lic servants for defecting from the ranks of the party which has
almost stood alone as representative of Southern voters for a
century. The reason for leaving is.that the servants-frdm Con-
gressman Bill Grant on down-feel the party has become so al-
ienated from their beliefs andithe values of tliir constituents,
they feel they can remain Democrats no longer.
Let's face. something here., A person has to have a pretty
good handle on-what his constituents think, or on what they
want for their government in order to get elected. A person who
does not. commiserate with his constutients will not get elected,
nor will he stay elected for very long if he happens to fool them
SBill Giant, a perfectly acceptable Congressman from this
district the day before his change, suddenly became inept and
-a traitor the day of .his defection, in the eyes of the party. We
hardly find it possible to believe Bill Grant's abilities eroded so
much in 24 hours.
In all likelihood Sheriff Harrison will be the target of some of
the same kind of charges over the next few weeks or months.
We say, if Sheriff Harrison was a good Sheriff on June 1, he
will be a good Sheriff on July 1. If he was a sorry Sheriff on
June 1, he will :still be a sorry Sheriff on July 1. The party affili--
ation didn't make him, nor is it an excuse for his shortcomings.
Actually,' it is our opinion that rather than spend time
dreaming up harsh things to say about those who have
changed political affiliation, the Democratic party.needs to con-
sider their actions just could be the reason for all this defec-
tion. It's time for a good, close look.

O Say Can They See?

It was late autumn, 1945, my
* father along with thousands of
other G.I.'s were returning from
.the South Pacific. The -constant
intake of quinine had turned
their skin as yellow as the people
they had been fighting. For most,
like my father, they hadn't seen
:home in four years. They'd waded
ashore at places no one had
heard of before New Guinea,
Biak, Midway, Guam, Guadalca-
nal, Wake, Iwo Jima, Palawan -
and they encountered an enemy
that fought with a suicidal frenzy.
Our guys never took one back-

' ward step. Even the Japanese
were amazed that. "they Just kept
The Job done, they were on a
Liberty ship steaming into San
Francisco Bay. Listen- folks -
nothing but real men on board
that day. Men tempered, honed
and hardened by years of war.
Men tougher than anything we
-can comprehend.- As they entered
the Bay someone thoughtfully un-
rolled a gigantic. piece of cloth, a
-large rag and draped it from the
golden Gate Bridge. Nothing spe-
cial about this- rag, this inexpen-

slve piece of cloth, except It was
colored red. white and blue and
had a bunch of stars up In one
* comer.
Those real men on that troop
ship, those veterans, men who
willingly, had paid such a terrible
price for my freedom, the world's
greatest soldiers began to cry like
babies.Just at the sight of that
red, white and blue rag.
Five Supreme Court justices
ruled this past week that it is
O.K. to burn the American Flag.
Can you believe that? "Freedom
of expression granted by the First


Amendment," is the excuse they
used. Listen, I've .read the First
Amendment -it gives us plenty
of "freedoms" but it stops way
short of saying we can bum an
American Flag. Any judge, Su-
preme Court Justice or not, that
can't understand that is a bloom-
ing Idiot. Those five guys proba-
bly think Jane Fonda is an Amer-
The American Flag is not a
piece of cloth it's a symbol for
* this. nation. It's a symbol repre-
Ssenting.the people of this coun-
try. Its every stitch embodies all
that we have been, are, and ever
hope to be. And because of the
very principles that flag repre-
sents, you may disagree openly
Swith- anybody or anything in
America. You are free to express
: yourself without fear of reprisal.
But don't touch that flag. Don't
ever touch that ragged old flag.
One part of this stupid deci-
sion said that it .'does not con-
done flag burning t-mat could in-
Scite a riot." Listen, you need to
have confidence in the Supreme
Court. They're appointed for life
and are supposed to be the final
word on the law. I didn't want to
.-say this .to any one before but
they have made some decisions in
: the recent past that made me a
little suspect of them, but this
latest one takes the cake. They've
gone off the deep end. They mus-
ta' got caught up with a couple of
bleeding heart liberals. They have
been justices for so long that
they've become immune to the
wishes, thoughts, ideas and
dreams, of the real people in
America. Boy, they may be in for
a shock. .
I'll tell you something else.
I've never paid a price to live inr
this country; It's all come so easy
- for me. But this decision is a slap
in my father's face. It's a personal
affront to those Americans who
stood on Lexington's Green, who
fought at Bunker .Hill, .who
shocked them at Saratoga, froze:
-at Valley-Forge arid danced with
- G.W. at Yorktown. It's a personal
affront to those men, who in
1812, showed the British and the
world that our Flag was for real,
;- and was going -to be around for a
long, .long time. That old flag
hung a little low at Bull Run, Get-
tysbuig, Shiloh- and Antietam
-. Creek. So many sons were given
: up but the. flag waved on. This de-
cision is a personal affront to
those men who took it "over
there" with General "Black Jack"
in 1917. And years later the "D"
Day invasion was a smashing
success; but I still see, think of
and appreciate those Americans

IT ISN'T THE holiday which
Is spurring.my memory to unusd-,
al action, either. -
What solidified my resolve to-
make it high priority that I have,
an American Flag for display onr
July Fourth, is the action takewl

by the Supreme Court last week.
I realize one can't have all he
wants 100% of the time from his
public servants. Believe me, I
know this, and after the last 25
years or so,. I have grown accus-
tomed to the Supreme Court evi-
dently ignoring what the real sol-
id citizens, of this nation want in
interpretation of their laws. All of
us have seemed to take it in the
neck, when it came -to Supreme
Court decisions. I don't know
anyone or any group they partic-~
ularly pleased with their deci-
sions. -
I know one thing- for sure.
They sure didn't please me when.
they moved last week that It was
not a criminal act 'to' burnm the
American Flag in a demonstra-
tion if the burner wasn't being vi-
olent or trying. to'-affect physical
violence by his act.
who will get physically violent if

they see an American flag being
burned. One of the quickest ways
We know of to stir violence in the
United States of America, is to
bum an American Flag.
The Iranians earned the en-
mity of the American people more
so by burning our flag than they
did by taking hostages, damaging
the embassy, tweaking President
Carter's nose or refusing to allow
oil tankers to sail through the
Straight of Hormuz.
. You just don't bum an Ameri-
can Flag, whether or not it is a
law on the books.
We may have a lot of things
wrong with the -eople of our. na-
tion, but being lackadaisical
about the sanctiLy of our flag isn't
one of them.

I CAN'T FIGURE out whatev-
er caused the Supreme Court to
come up with a decision like that.
Especially, I can't figure what'

caused Chief Justice Rhenquist
to author the written opinion that
burning an American Flag was
just an exercise of the freedom of
Well, it's also an exercise of
freedom of speech for an Ameri-
can to say, "I'm. going to kill the
president If I get the opportuni-
ty," but exercise of that right of
freedom of speech will get anoth-
er freedom taken away from him:
the freedom to still roam free
'- about the streets. That bugger
will be slapped in jail so fast he'll
wonder what happened.
I have always managed to ra-
tionalize other decisions by the
high court of the land, coming to
an understanding of why they
made the decision they came up
with. But, I can't for the life of me
see how a loyal American can
* say, "It Isn't illegal to bum an
American Flag." If that isn't ille-
gal, the Court should be taking
steps to make it so.

Just One of Those Days

Everybody has one from time to time. Even the rich folks, they
tell me.
Usually it's a day when you least expect it. And it doesn't mat-
.ter how well or far in advance you plan things, everything just
seems to go wrong. II
My wife and I made meticulous plans the day before and were
prepared to the last detail. We -would arise at 5:30 a.m., load the
boat. stop by the store for ice and a few odds and ends, put the
boat in and be on the point at Cape San Bias shortly after sunrise.
The Redfish should be running at that time, I reasoned. My wife
would do what she enjoys most; sit in the sun or walk along the
beach looking for sea shells.
All of our children had individual plans for the day and we were
going to enjoy a relaxing day by ourselves. Below, however, is h9w
our well-planned day went.
*That morning, when I went to load the fishing gear in the boat,
all the fishing tackle and one reel and rod was missing. My son took
them the night before and forgot to return them. I had no idea
where he or the fishing gear was. I was not to be denied, however,
so I purchased more fishing gear and we were on our way.
*Shortly after launching the boat I discovered the battery was
dead. I unhooked it, returned to the house, charged it and returned,
to the boat. By this time it was after 9:00 a.m. ,and I suspected the
Redfish were either hiding in a secluded spot in St. Jqe' Bay or at
some undisclosed location in the Gulf. '
*When we arrived at the point, we tried to set the anchor..a
short distance from shore so the back of the boat would stay off the
beach in about waist-deep water. Before. we could get the anchor
set we had drifted out too far so I tried to start the engine to get us
back in. It wouldn't make a sound, much less start. What the heckI
I thought. We've got all day and surely someone we know will come
along and give us some assistance. I was ready to fish! :
*I had fished for about 20 minutes when my hook caught a
snag a shprt distance from shore. I finally had to snatch it and
when I did'the pressure broke the point off my hook. Want to guess
what I failed to purchase when I bought more fishing tackle? Right.
Hooks. My hopes for a perfect day were failing but I borrowed a few
hooks from a fellow fisherman close by and tried again.
*on the third cast, after I had rigged my line, something hit itl
My luck had finally changed, I told my wife, but, when-I pulled it in
it was a saltwater catfish' Better than nothing, I, thought. Maybe
there was still one big Redfish out there looking for a tasty shrimp.
As I gently grabbed the catfish to take, him off the hook, he sudden-
ly flinched, sinking his right sticker fin deep into my left hand, right
in the soft, fleshy, tender part between my.forefinger and thumb.
He made a good hit because the fin was in, almost all the way to his
body and to my thumb bone.
It had been a long time since I've had anything hurt me that
bad or seen the blood flow from my body that fast. And to compli-
cate an already disastrous situation, I couldn't get the fin out of my
hand. Finally, in desperation, I pulled as hard and fast as I could
and literally ripped the fin out of my hand. I never. realized until
that day that those fins had barbs on the inside of them.
There I was, stranded with a beautiful woman in a bikini, plenty
of food and drinks in a cooler, on a beautiful beach on a perfect day
and I was bleeding to death from a catfish wound and no way to get,
When the gravity of the situation hit me, I turned my back so
my wife wouldn't see me cry. That was shortly before I fainted!
After my wife revived me and shortly before I was down ,to my
-last gallon of blood, I looked up and over the horizon came the MA-
'rine Patrol.1I have never been so glad to see anyone in my life. In a"
short time'he had us' started and me on my way to medical atten-
Looking back, I figure my "day" cost me about $250 and 10
years of my life. If I had been where I should have been last Sun-
day, none of this would have ever happened.
Want to guess where I'll be next Sunday morning?'

Korea and Vietnam? We've been
awful slow in even thanking
them. The bullets were real in
those wars, too.
You know the 4th of July is
next week. The only thing dumb-
er than their stupid, crazy, idio-
tic, anti-American decision was
the timing of it. People who don't
understand that the flag and in-
dependence is one and the same
shouldn't burn it they ought to
move to China:
We could take any 25 men off
that ship my dad sailed home on,
train'em for two weeks and they
could capture Washington, D.C.
in a flat bedded wagon in 30 'min-
utes. Those real men would
straighten out this' problem
quicker than you could say Kai-

Boykins' failure to appear had re-
sulted in his bond being default-
ed and a Capias issued for his ar-.
rest. Boykins was awaiting trial
on several burglary charges..
The fugitive was seen enter-
ing a home on Avenue C, where
nobody was at home. Police were
called and the home was stir-
rounded, trapping Boykins in-
side. Chief Richter and Lieuten-
ant James Graves went inside,
looking for Boykins, and found
him hiding behind a refrigerator,
inside the home.
Richter said, 'We now have
him for breaking and entering a
home, in addition to the eight or
ten felony charges which have al-
ready been placed against him."

Rebuts Article on Safe Water Supply

Dear Editor:
The article concerning "water!'
in last week's edition of your
paper was well written for the in-
tended purpose to convey to
your readers that all's well on the
'western front' and to 'drink and
be merry' (their water that is)l
It upsets ime to read the arti-
., cle because I have too many facts
as to the "true condition" of our
local water supply. So with your
ever present patience, please suf-
fer through my letter, sir; as I in-
ject some, thoughts one can porg-
der. '
Chemical reports on March :
13, 1989 disclosed to someone ;,
that fluoride had exceeded the..,J
' Federal and State Maximum Con-
taminate Level (MCL) which is set',
dt 4 parts per million (PPM) for a&.
Primary MCL limit. In a moment I ':
shall explain my concern and ap-
pareritly the Federal, State, DER
and HRS, concern; but first,. I
think you might find it interesting .,
to learn .my source of this infor-
mation. I was sitting at the Look- .
out Lounge one evening, before
the last board meeting, with some ,
friends (interestingly-they are .re-:
lated to one of the Mexico Beach
bCity Commissioners) when. Mr.
Frank Hall entered and joined at "
our table. (Mr. Hall is certified by
DER to handle the water system
in Mexico Beach.) He mentioned
'the present level of fluoride in the

system's water, etc. I knew there
had been no public notification of
the MCL Primary Level being ex-
ceeded. And I have been studying
fluoride's effect on the human
body for years now, so I had some
immediate concern for the user's
of the system, especially my
friends that have various physical
problems that high amounts of
fluoride can aggravate, and many
of them reside in the Beacon Hill
area of Gulf County. Some of
your readers are now aware that
Mexico Beach provides Beacon
Hill's water. It is interesting to
note, they are not taxpayers of
Mexico Beach, nor are they voters
of Mexico Beach. .yet, they are
'supplied this necessity of life -
!water from a municipality that
they have no .input to, a very bad
position for a user. Surely you
can understand my presentation
.to the Board of County Commis-
sioners for Gulf County. I believe
I explained the problems and also
Informed, of current scientific
"facts as to the danger associated
with high consumption of fluo-
ride, to our Commissioners, that
day (their last meeting June 13),
What they as Commissioners do
with the facts I presented, is their
business, but, as I told them, I re-
peat here I believe there might
be some liability associated with
"lack of action" In reference to al-
lowing public consumption of un-

Dear Editor.
I'm going to take a chance

about Jim Wright, William H.

Voted for Grant
'Dear Editor
I When Bill Grant announced
he was changing,his party regis-
tration he said it was because he
wanted to be in a position to do
more for his district.
Today Bill is a member of the
House Agriculture Committee.
His clout has brought the U.S.
Secretary of Agriculture to the
district to hear concerns of every
day farmers and he has spon-
sored a number of bills in the
field of agriculture. From what I
have seen so far, he is doing more
for his district
I have known Bill Grant virtu-
ally all my adult life. I supported
him when he ran for the Florida
\Senate and when he ran for Con-
gress. I supported him for a num-
ber of reasons. First, he listens.
Second, he cares. Third, he gets
things done.
Who cares what party Bill
Grant belongs to. I didn't vote for
a party, I voted for. Bill Grant. I'll
vote for Bill again, too!

Before the June 13 BCC
meeting, I called DER in Panama
City and was referred to the Pen-
sacola office.. I spoke with Mr.
John Pope, telephone number 1-
436-8380. The last report he
found concerning Mexico Beach's
fluoride. count was dated the
spring before year 1988. .and
he. agreed to call me after he
checked with Mexico Beach. He
returned with a. call that after-
noon and .had received confirma-.
tion of two tests dated March 13,.
1989 that showed the fluoride
count to be 4.32 at the system
and 4.36 at Well #2..
.Mr., Editor. ,some statements
of fact appeared in your paper's.
article last week that I challenge
with these questions:

Why was DER informed of
chemical test results, after my
call to Pensacola?
Why did DER have to call
Mexico Beach more than two
months after the tests?
The DER regulations are very
explicit in reference to Primary
MCL's being exceeded in a public
water system. By DER regula-
tions, Mexico Beach was sup-
posed to have advised DER way
back in March! Why didn't they?
Mrs. Marion G. Hough

[ED NOTE: We couldn't let
this go by without rebutting. The
content of your letter serves to
scare too many people unneces-
sarily as to the safety of their
drinking water. There is nothing
wrong with Mexico Beach water.
The situation you. allege to
has been well known by DER and
monitored by them ever Since
Mexico Beach was given an oper:
eating permit. They knew of the
so-called situation you describe--
which, by the way, is misleading.
Mexico Beach has two water
wells. One teeters back and forth
by tenths of parts per million on
each side of -the four PPM limit
for. flouride, while the other is
well below the limit. Water from
the two wells is mixed together,'
providing drinking water which
has a fluoride level well below the
limits set and monitored by DER
People can have confidence in
the safety of their public water
supply in this area and we don't
appreciate anyone using tidbits
of mis-information to shake the
confidence of people in something
so vital as a public water supply.]

Practice Safety
Summer is here and' it's time
for all those activities we asso-
ciate with the warmer weather -
swimming, bicycling, and skate-
All this summer fun, though,
:leaves our kids open' to serious
injury. The rate of head injuries
is particularly high during this
time of year.
Head injury is the number
one cause of death among chil-'
dren. An estimated 'one million
children under the age of 16 are
victims of. head injury each year
in the United States, according to
the National Head Injury Founda-
tion. Practicing a few simple safe-
ty rules can greatly reduce the
risk of head injury. '

Made by Doug Kent, county environmental
health specialist with the Health Department.
Kent wanted the county to request a con-
tract be negotiated allowing his department to
- assume the responsibility of inspecting under-
ground fuel tanks in the municipalities and the
county at large. Kent said combining the
county and city inspection responsibility would
result in more income for the inspecting body
and would 'keep responsibility for the,inspec-
tions at home.

Kent said combining the responsibility
would make the service pay for itself and would
make the contract attractive to his department.
Building Inspector Dewayne Manuel, who
has worked with the two agencies for several
years in permitting septic tanks and other un-
derground installations, urged the Commission
"do not contract with DER for HRS to do any-
thing for us. Past experience has been horrible
with this arrangement."
The Commission took Manuel's advice and
turned down the request.
In other business matters, the Commission:
-Named Al Scheffer, primary and Greg
Johnson, alternate, to represent the manage- -
ment area of Gulf County on the Private Indus-
try Council.
-Heard a request to pave a portion of
Charles Street in White City and, close-Jackson
Street in Oak Grove between Duval Street,
north to the county drain ditch.
-Had response from the Florida Marine Pa-.
trol that they were investigating a complaint
filed in an arrest of a local citizen for violating
limits when no literature was available, to de-
fine proper fish limits. The Board is to be ad-
vised of the investigation outcome.
--Acting Chairman Peters named himself
and Commissioners Creamer and Parker to the
Property Adjustment Board. The School Board
-has named Board Members James Hanlon
and David Byrd to serve on the same board.






Krafties Win League Tournament

For the second year in a row,
the Kraftlies have proven them-
selves to be the best Dixie Youth
baseball team in Gulf and Bay
County. Both last year and this
year the Kraftiles finished the lo-
cal season undefeated with 16-0
records, and entered the League
championship tournament open
to all teams in the area who had
won their local league competi-
The Krafties extended their
win record to 21-0, being the only
undefeated team in the double
elimination tournament hosted
by Callaway. The Krafties downed
Mid City 23-5, Bayou George 18-
17, Lynn Haven 4-3, Callaway
11-4 and Lynn Haven 13-12 in
the championship game.
The Krafties' bats were largely
silenced last Wednesday evening
as they faced Lynn Haven's ace,
who was an almost exclusive
curve ball pitcher. He fanned il
Kraftie batters, but Damon
Quinn was able to connect on a
three-run homer and 'a double.
Des Baxter collected the only two
other hits, banging out a single
and a double.
Baxter was the winning pitch-
er striking out seven Hutt Insu-
rance batters, and only giving up
three walks.
Damon Quinn proved too
much for the Callaway first place
team, as he struck out ten bat-
ters, while only giving up three
base hits, and walking three.
Collecting hits for Port St. Joe
were Quinn, Baxter, Doyle Cros-
by and Brian Jenkins, each with
a double, and Stuart Griffin with
a bunt single. The Krafties took
advantage of the timely hitting
combined with errors and walks
by Callaway.

Lynn Haven's Hutt Insurance
battled its way out of the loser's
bracket to meet the Krafties for
the championship game Saturday
It was almost a replay of
Wednesday's game, with almost
the same pitching rotation for
each team. After having seen the
curve ball pitching Wednesday,

the Kraftles hit much better in
the championship game, collect-
ing five hits.
Brian Jenkins started on the
mound for the Krafties but was
relieved in the first inning by
Ryan Yeager, who got the win.
Baxter came on in the fourth in-
ning and saved the game for the

With the score knotted at 8-8
going into the last inning, the
Krafties scored five runs on two
hits by Yeager and Chris Mock in
the top of the inning. Lynn Haven
battled back in the bottom of the
inning, scoring four runs. The
last out came on a ground ball to
the shortstop who flipped it to
second for the force out to pre-
serve the victory.

The Krafties proudly proclaim that they're "number one", the best 10-12 year old baseball team in
the Gulf and Bay County area. Kneeling, from left: Charlie Lanford, Jesse Colbert, Julie Lanford (bat

A Ready


By Douglas M. Kent
Environmental Director
In recent months, several ar-'
ticles of medical waste, which
pose a threat of infection to hu-
mans, have been found on our
beaches. Most ,of the. articles
found were syringe/needle combi-
Snations, which are considered
"one-time use" Supplies. The ease
in obtaining such syringes, and
their improper disposal, has
created a potentially dangerous-
situation for the general public.
There is a widespread,
though false, perception held by.
the general public, that the AIDS
Virus is readily transmissible to
humans -from contact with waste
found on the beach. The Hepatitis
B Virus, however, may survive.
the elements for a few weeks, and
could be transmitted to humans
by parenteral exposure under the
right circumstances. A much
greater risk occurs from medical
waste that is mixed with other
garbage, where sharps and blood
have not been made innocuous
by time and weathering.
Fear, of contracting the AID's
virus, can be claimed by CDC re-
search that reveals:
1) the AID's virus is very
fragile and dies quickly, even at
normal growth temperatures,
when exposed to the environ-
2) gross amounts of contami-
nated blood or body fluid must
come into contact with the blood
or body fluids of another person
for infection to occur.
The safe handling and proper
removal and disposal of medical
waste Is very important. Extreme .
care, using precautions that
would be followed in health care
facilities, should occur. In order
to minimize or eliminate potential
, risk to the public, the Environ-
mental Health Section of the local,
Public Health Unit should be con-

light sticks for night fishing.

In regards to windstorm cov-
erage, make sure you check your
policy for any windstorm exclu-
sions. Your agent should be able
to tell you If an exclusion can be
removed. Otherwise, you may
have to shop for other coverage.
Here are some other tips for
hurricane season:
1. Update your list of person-
al belongings. Make an itemized
inventory that includes cost, re-
ceipts, dates of purchase and se-
rial numbers. Photographs or vid-
eo tapes are also a good idea.
2. Keep a copy of your inven-
tory records and insurance policy
in a safe deposit box or with a
friend or relative.
3.. Don't wait until a storm
warning is in effect to make sure
you are adequately insured. Re-
view your policy today and make
necessary changes before a storm
appears. on the horizon. Remem-
ber, changing coverage or compa-
nies can take time. Once a hurri-
cane has been identified, -many
companies will not issue new pol-
icies or change existing coverage.
4. If you change companies
or policies, be sure the new cover-
age is in effect before canceling
the old policy.
If you have further questions,
please call the Insurance Consu-
mer Hotline at 1-800-342-2762,

Pests Hit


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Summer: heat and the on-
Sslaught of vegetable pests limit us
I4 what we. plant in June and
".July.- In June we can still plant
beans, cherry tomatoes, eggplant,
okra; southern.. peas, and sweet
potatoes. If you want to try to
-grow a Halloween pumpkin this
year, and missed the normal
spring season, plant some around
July 4th. This. will give enough
time for pumpkins to mature for
the October holiday, but best of
luck to you if you try this! Pump-
kins have a myriad of problems in
:North Florida gardenss, especially
in the summer. To keep them
from:lgetting belly rot, you need to
place .the enlarging fruit off the
soil. Placing .mulch under them: t
would cut down on this powdery p
mildew, spider mites, vine borers
Sand occasionally pickle worms. If.
you get a pumpkin suitable for y
carving through, it would be a
worth the effort, a
.. If you are through with the .
garden for the summer and are
just waiting for the fall season, it
is advisable to pull-up all vegeta- h
bles. Vegetables-, even those no it
longer producing, left In the gar- ti
den serves as breeding sites for, T
insects, nematodes and many il
diseases. This just makes garden-
ing that much more difficult in
the fall. Pull them up and leave
