The Gulf County Commission has known for several years
they need to adopt some sort of a user fee for solid waste collec-
tion, handling and disposal. Somehow or other this knowledge
has always been delayed while different avenues to followv are
The examination may come to a sudden halt this year and a
drastic overhaul of the solid waste program inaugurated. One
of the victims of the overhaul will probably be the green collec-
tion trailers stationed strategically throughout the county. An-
other drastic change will be in the method of paying for the ser-
As the new budget started to take shape last week, County
Commissioners realized they would be spending some
$700,000-plus on their solid waste operation during the com-
ing year. In the past, the entire operation has been financed by
ad valorem taxes, with just a small portion coming from state
funds. Actually, one could say the entire, program is funded by
ad valorem taxes and not be stretching the fact hardly any.
Monday, the Commission once again began soliciting ideas
and suggestions from solid waste collection firms, with Argus,
and M&O of Bay County, Solid Waste Management of Marianna
and C&N of Calhoun County talking about their services and
telling the Commission what they could do.
Contracting with a private firm would effectively put the
county out of the solid waste business, except for operation of
their Class III landfills at Five Points near Port St. Joe and on
Highway 22, near Wewahitchka.
Such a step would make solid waste collection service nec-
essary for residents-a situation which has made the Commis-
sion balk in the past.
Such a step would also cause the Commission to remove
their green trailers from throughout the county, laying the re-
sponsibility on the home owner to subscribe for home pick-up
service and transport his class III solid waste to one of the two
Contractors would be expected to guide their customers in
keeping up with state mandates of recycling 30% of the solid
waste produced in the county within five years, reducing the
tonnage of certain items now sent to the landfill operation..
Contractors made presentations last year which would have
cost users or the county some $90.00 per ton to properly col-
lect and dispose of solid waste. No prices have been mentioned
to date this time around, but state and federal guidelines for
handling solid waste are more stringent this year than last.
With the budget needs of the new year topping the
$700.000 mark to finance the present collection and disposal
.-method and state requirements stiffening by the year, it's rea-
listically not far down the road when it will cost $1 million a
year to take care of Gulf County's wastes.
Presently, the debris is trucked to Bay County, where it is
burned in the incinerator. Last year, incineration charges alone
were $230,000. With Bay County Commissioners. looking at a
multi-million shortage in the operation of the Incinerator, it
probably means an attempt to hike the incineration fees for
other customers like Gulf County.
*Nobody knows what the charge per customer will be for sol-
id waste service. The nearest the Commission has been able to
come to an estimated fee is the $11.00 per month C&H charges
its Calhoun County customers for one pick-up a week of up to
90 gallons of solid waste.
All four of the private collectors told the, Commission Mon-
day night the service would only accomplish what the Commis-
sion wants in Gulf County, if subscription to the collection is
made mandatory.
Right now, the only thing the Commission-will admit to be-
ing mandatory, is the need.to do something to get relief for the
necessary but troublesome service.

Two Pulled

From Gulf

A Tallahassee family of
three was saved from a
death by drowning due to
the quick response and re-
action of a Gulf County
Sheriffs Deputy last
Wednesday afternoon.
Van and Katie Schroder
and their small daughter
Jenny were swimming in
the Gulf near Boardwalk on
St. Joseph Peninsula last
Wednesday when Schroed-
er and his daughter were
caught in an undertow.
The undertow wasn't se-,
vere, but the two couldn't
get back to shore because of
strong currents.
Schroeder called to his
wife, who tried to help. Two
unidentified ladies also went
into the water to help, but
were unable to pull the fam-
fly to safety.
Mrs. Schroeder then
went for help, and called the
Guf County Sheriffs office.
Deputy Malcolm Garrett
happened to be in the vicini-
ty where he had Just an-
swered another call. Garrett
was dispatched immediately
to the scene and was there
within about 10 minutes.
Garrett sized up the sit-
uation, then enlisted the aid
of a couple of bystanders in
forming a human chain into
the water. One by one, the
human chain passed the
undertow victims back to
shore, averting what could
have turned a holiday at the
beach into a tragedy.

Tentative Figures Show Possible Reduction of Millage

City Budj
Tentative overtures for com-
ing up with a new budget for the
City of Port St. Joe indicates a
whopping increase is to be ex-
pected in the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant financial plan, but
only a modest increase can be ex-
pected in the operational budget..
So far, only an increase of
some $26,976 is expected in the
$1,833,206 general fund budget;
* a $3,340 in the $824,415 water
and sewer budget and $1,200 in
the Oak Grove water and sewer
Port St. Joe's operational
budget is facing an increase of
some 1.5%, which should result
in a modest reduction in millage
by the time the working financial
program is completed. Last year,
city taxpayers had a rate of 5.388
mills levied against real and per-
sonal property.
The budget will probably see
some changes before it is finally
adopted, according to city offi-
cials. The Commission has de-
layed some expenditures the past
couple of years because they
didn't want to raise millage. This
year, the city treasury has
$150,000 more to work with be-
cause the city made the final pay-
ment of a damage judgment this
past budget year.

County Looks At Solid Waste User


...: .. . .1 ......t'"1 'rj-f-;-


A Problem

There have been disagreements between the county and cit-
ies regarding the proposed motor fuel tax dispensation. Both
the county and the cities thought they were receiving too small
a portion of the anticipated revenue from the new tax.
Even with this considerable disagreement early in the plan-
ning stages for. the new revenue, there is one thing both the
county and the cities agree on. The condition of our streets,
both urban and rural, has been neglected far too long.
Recently, before the Gulf County Commission, City Com-
missioner James B. Roberts made the comment that of some
27 miles of paved streets in Port St, Joe, there were at least 14
miles which needed re-surfacing right now, or they would soon
deteriorate to the point where they would have to be replaced
from the dirt surface on up.
Some of the city streets are bad.
As bad as the city streets are, they are not unique with all
paved streets throughout the county and in Wewahitchka, as
well. It may be a significant point that there has been no local
paving of any consequence anywhere in Gulf County since the
last road bond issue was floated. That issue will be paid off in
1994 only five years down the road ... if that will give you
any indication of how long it has been since any attention has
been paid to our local roads.
There was a time when the state of Florida would pave any
street we wanted paved under what was called a secondary
road program. Gulf County took advantage of this offer, but it
has long since gone the way of the wild goose.
Now, all those roads built under the secondary plan must
be re-surfaced and we don't have the tax structure to do it. The
six cent motor fuel tax is the first real attempt to address our
road needs in more than 20 years. Anything can get in sorry
shape if it isn't maintained for that long.
We're pleased to see our various commissioners throughout
the county begin to realize we don't have a localized problem
with our roads. We have a county-wide problem and if it isn't
addressed on a county-wide basis, our problems are going to
multiply rather than subtract.
Let's hope we make the most of this attempt at curing a lin-
gering problem.

One Is Enough

Gulf County finally had its first traffic fatality of the year
last week. It was a long time coming, but we had all rather it
didn't come at all if we had a choice in the matter.
The law enforcement people, the emergency medical people
and others involved in caring for those involved in traffic acci-
dents were all cognizant of the fact that we were getting along
in the year without a traffic fatality and most were afraid to
point out this fact publicly, in fear that it would set off a rash of
traffic deaths.
Of course, going a full year with no traffic deaths may be
only a pipe dream; it may be just figures [or lack of figures] on
a statistical chart, but it's one statistic we don't at all mind-our
, county achieving. j
We don't suppose that,since the invention of the self-
starting automobile; since tires first were pneumatic; since
roads were first paved, has any county with several miles of
roadway made it through an entire year without some death
being attributable to the motor vehicle and its operation during
the year.
For years, the City of Port St. Joe received awards for going
a full year without a pedestrian being killed on the streets by a,
motor vehicle. We have even gone a year at a time without a
traffic death inside the city limits. We doubt if the county has
achieved this milestone in many a moon.
There seems to be only one common denominator where
traffic -deaths are concerned. In almost every case, someone
has done something stupid., illegal or dangerous and it has re-
sulted in the death of a person or persons.
Given this denominator, we can all have a very real part in
seeing that our traffic death string stops at one for the year
1989. If all it takes is not being stupid in operation of a motor
vehicle, not disobeying the traffic laws or not playing chicken
with our cars or trucks, we can be responsible for another sta-
tistic, also: that of no more traffic deaths this year in our
Killing only one on our streets in a year is still a worthy
goal. Let's try to maintain it. ,

Of Toads and Elbows

As I watched the replay of the
moon landing of 20 years ago.
and then looked outside at the
driving rain that had been pour-
ing down almost daily for weeks, I
couldn't help but wonder if there
is not a connection between the
two. MWe have had a little rain.
Someone remarked at church
just, this past Sunday that we had
"had quite a shower the day be-
fore". Listen, when it starts rain-
ing around noon and doesn't let

up 'til well after dark that clas-
sifies as a Lad more than a show-
er in my book.
The question has been raised
of the possibility we have entered
into the dog days of summer.
Couldn't be. As you know, I have
done exhaustive research over
the years into the, fascinating
phenomenon of dog days. I've had.

on in August. The weather station
in 'Wiggins, Mississippi, will offi-
cially announce the opening of
dog days by sending up an inflat-
ed weather balloon shaped like a
Having ruled out dog days we
must look at other possible caus-


es of so many dark clouds and so
much rain. That's where the
moon landing of July, 1969,
comes in. There's a large contin-
gent of folks that maintain the
space program, by poking holes
in the upper ionosphere, has
created some unnatural weather
for us. I've questioned some of
these people at length and I've
never been able to ascertain
whether the holes let something
in or allow something to escape.
Just to keep us confused,
many weather experts completely
discredit the "hole in space" theo-
ry. Miss Flora Mae Hutchins is
one of these,. Miss Flora Mae lived
on the next hill over from where, I
grew up. She most accurately
predicted weather by observing
frogs and the "feel" in her left el-
bow. She steadfastly discount
the "hole" idea. "Hog wash," was
her concise summation of the
"whole" thing.
Miss Flora Mae maintained
that we hadn't poked any holes
up there 'cause we've never been
-"up there". She says the moon
landing took place in a Nevada
studio. "Son, it's 240 thousand
miles to the moon." .
'Yes, ma'am."
'That man who supposedly
stepped on' the moon came in
clear as a bell on my T.V. set."
'Yes, ma'am."
"Son, my T.V. won't hardly
pick up Paducah, Kentucky, and
it's just 80 miles up the road!"
I could see her point. And I
have been mulling it over for 20
years.. Of course, if there are no
holes in the ionosphere, then
we're back to square one on
.what's happening with our weath-
er. I've never subscribed to the
aerosol-fluorocarbons theory my-"
self. A couple of shots of Right

I called mother to A) see if
Miss Flora Mae was still living,
and B) get her phone number.'
Quite to my surprise, Miss Flora
remembered, me. "Speak up son, I
don't hear like I used to."
I asked her about the recent
publicity over the moon landing.
"Son, we're the only nation in the
world that has a 20-year anniver-
sary celebration for an event that
didn't happen!"
Miss Flora Mae's not one to
change her mind. I remembered
to ask about her frogs and then,
on a whim, I asked if the B-2
Stealth Bomber was going to af-
fect our weather.
"Son, nothing cost 450 mil-
lion dollars. It doesn't even look
like an airplane. The idea came
out of a Batman comic. It's unde-
tectable. Radar won't even pick it

Everything Isn't Always What It Seems to Be

there's always two sides to every
subject? No matter how wrong or
how right a person may seem to
be in his reasoning, there is al-
ways a different viewpoint to con-
sider which often changes the
complexion of our own beliefs or
Two of the most recent hap-
enings which have put an almost
universal opinion in the hearts of
the population of the nation were
the striking a of reef by the Exxon
Valdez and the crash of the light
plane containing the person of a

The dangerous result of such
"open and shut" cases is that we
all tend to form an opinion based
on what we know about the mat-
ter and it takes more than an act
of Congress to change our collec-

tive minds at times.
TAKE THE CASE of the Exx-
on Valdez for instance, and its
captain, Joe Hazelwood. The first
news items concerning the cap-
tain and his part in the ground-
ing of the huge tanker said he
was suspected of being drunk
since he had a.drinking problem.
Ever since that article was
printed in the news reports, Haz-
elwood has been judged drunk,
so far as the public is concerned.
Now comes an in-depth arti-
cle concerning the grounding of
the vessel in Time magazine
which says tests of the captain
after the accident point out that
his blood alcohol count was not
high enough to be concerned
about his condition.
Then the article goes on to
say the test was made 10 hours
after the accident and he had
taken a couple of drinks between
the time of the accident and his

about the claim the man was

not monitoring the ship in its ra-
dar, although the Valdez had ra-
dioed the local station it was
changing from the outbound lane
to the incoming lane in Prince
Edward Sound to avoid some ice
The article says the Coast
Guard claimed the ship was not
monitored by radar because the
radar screen would not pick up

the outline of the vessel from the
rear. Yet, it was clearly visible af-
ter the grounding.
Coast Guard and federal
rules had been changed several
times as to who was acceptable
as operators of the ship under-
way with some versions making
the third mate [actually the one
in charge at the time of the
grounding] eligible and some
making him ineligible. There is
still no certain decision as to
whether or not the third mate

When I Get Time

Its been said that the average American father spends less than
five minutes per day in direct conversation with his children. I'm
not sure who conducted the survey, but they sure didn't interview
me. I spend more than five minutes a day just saying "no" to my
More and more I wonder when I'll have time to get around to do-
ing all the things that are necessary for survival. The harder I work,
the more behinder I get, it seems. And, as I madly race toward the
half-century age mark, I wonder if I'll ever get caught up.
Those of you who, don't have children won't understand. If you
don't, pretend for a moment that you do and there are two of them,
a girl and a boy, that they are teenagers and are involved in the fol-
lowing: The Boy Scouts, the school band, MYF (church youth
group), The Stac House, The Fun Center, other girls and boys, The
National Association of Children Spending More Money Than Their
Parents Can Make, and The Drive Me Everywhere Alliance.
It's no wonder most parents spend little or no time with their
children. Most children are never home, except to eat, change
clothes and replenish their money supply. If you would like a real
challenge, try to converse with a teenager while they are bathing,
eating or asking you for money. It's something to write home about
Several years ago I vowed to spend more time with my children.
I didn't want to wait until it was too late to establish a solid rapport
with them on a one-to-one basis. It didn't take long for me to realize
that I had taken on a difficult task. For some reason our schedules
are a little different. When I go to work they are asleep and when
they come home I'm asleep.
As much as I love my children, I must admit that making a liv-
ing is my number one priority. Oh, I've heard many people say that
their children come first in their lives, but if the eagle doesn't fly
each month, then neither does the family.
Don't get me wrong, when it comes down to it, I will stick by my
family. However, if I fail to make the necessary monetary arrange-
ments there will be some very sad faces at the table come supper-
time. I can't imagine what would happen to them if they didn't get
a new pair of designer tennis shoes every month or so.
And it's not just the job that eats up time. If I had known sever-
al years ago what I know now, I would still be renting a house.
There's more it seems, to keeping a house running than there is a
business. If the air conditioner isn't broken, it's the lawnmower. If
the lawnmower is working then the dishwasher goes down. There's
no way to live in a house without a dishwasher, as most of you who
have children know. Kids would rather eat off the table than wash.
dishes. Lord forbid them having to dry and put them up.
Not long ago I decided to have a talk with our kids and explain
the situation to them. They will understand, I told my wife, and
you'll see a drastic change in our home and family life. Children are
smart today, I assured her, and they will agree to slow down once I
tell them just how things really area.
My talk didn't go just as I had planned. The best explanation I
can give is I felt like I was talking to two robots.
*. I had moved them to a quiet place and explained to them, in
minute detail, the facts of life. I told them how important time was
and of the many things I had to do and How I needed their help in
making our home a smooth, functional, happy place to live. When I
had finished, I told them that I hoped that they understood and
asked them if they had any questions.
"I do, dad," my youngest said. "Can I have a couple of dollars
and will you take me to the Fun Center?"
You people who are not married and don't have children, jump
on in.........the kids are great!

John Reeves appeared before
the Commission wanting the
Board to fund an appraisal of the
Dead Man's Curve property in or-
der to comply with rules for re-
questing a grant for development.
Reeves said the state has al-
ready approved a grant of
$25,000 in its budget beginning
in October for planning, design
and other. expenditures for the
proposed recreation facility.
Reeves said the county can be in
good shape for a $120,000,con-
struction grant, if the appraisal is
Commissioner Ed Creamer,
acting as if he had heard the offer
before and voiced opposition
prior to the Tuesday meeting,
said, "This don't turn me on. If
the park is built at no cost to the
county, we couldn't afford to keep
it up, maintain and operate it on
the money we have available
now." Creamer said he was op-
posed to spending money for the
appraisal or anything else right
now. "We don't have the money,"
Chairman Doug Birmingham

substantiated Creamer's position,
saying, 'We can't obligate any
money for the park at this time,

be at the Health Department

our offices if we did that," Oksa-

Florida Wildlife Beautiful

Dear Editor.
I need to make known to the
public the real reason I was at
the City Commissioners' meeting
on Monday and to state what the
City acknowledged as a result of
my statement because what actu-
ally took place was not reported.
I made a statement not a
complaint to the City Board as
a whole because a telephone call
to Mr. Martin Adkinson and a let-
ter to the City Commissioners
last year was not acknowledged
as to the bush hogging of proper-
ty we own. Mr. Adkinson ac-
knowledged that he had not re-
ceived notice to remove our name
and property from his roll. I also
stated that the City has to give
written notice of 30 days before
they intend to mow.
I made three statements to
the City with the third stated for
the record that I would take care
of our property and that was the
result of my statement, not that I
would receive 30 days notice be-
fore they mow because the City
has been relieved of that respon-
The most important state-
ment that I made was that the
native Florida wildlife is beautiful
- sometimes and in the eye of
the beholder more so than well-
manicured lawns and flowers.
That wildlife is one of God's gifts
to us also and we native Floridi-
ans should appreciate it as part
of our heritage.
Thank you,
Barbara Bells
P.S. I challenge many readers
to get a camera, notebook, identi-
fication book and go to areas of
wildlife and see what you find.

Crack Cocaine Problem Is Growing-Harrison

Gulf County Sheriff Al Harri-
son said, in effect, 'You ain't seen
nothing yet," in describing the
growing menace of crack cocaine
before the Kiwanis Club Tuesday
at their noon meeting.
"The worst is yet to come,"
Sheriff Harrison said, as he pre-
dicted the illegal drug would be
much more prevalent in our soci-
ety five years from today.
The Sheriff said some stiff de-
terrents must be introduced if
the fight against this popular
narcotic is to gain any headway.
"Right now, we're barely keeping
our heads above water. The only
way we're going to gain any head-
way is to make the deterrent
equal to the profit in dealing In
the illegal drug," the speaker

Census Workers
Those persons interested in
working with the Census Bureau
for the 1990 Census need to be at

Joe on Wednesday, August 2 at 1
p.m. CDT for testing.
For more information, contact
Sandle Scott at 229-8438.

"Right now, it's a stiffer pen-
alty to get caught driving while
drinking than it is to get caught
selling crack cocaine," the Sheriff
pointed out. "We must do three
things to begin winning this war
we're in. We must continue to al-
low our law enforcement agencies
to work together as a team. We
must stiffen up the penalties and
we must demand a mandatory
sentence of time in prison for
dealing in drugs."
The Sheriff said drug dealers

know they will usually get proba-
tion the first two times they are
caught. "Most of them can do
that standing on their head Pro-
bation is no deterrent," Harrison
pointed out.
As for legalizing some of the
drugs which are now illegal,
Sheriff Harrison pointed out,
"There are 45 people in the Gulf
county jail right now. Over 80%.
of them are in their either directly
or indirectly because of drugs. If
they weren't caught dealing, buy-
ing or using, they were caught
doing something to get money to
buy them with. Most of our thefts
and burglaries today are caused
by people doing these things to
get money to support their drug
"If a person doesn't have the
money to support his habit, he
must either deal or steal. He has
to market drugs to supply his
own or steal to get the money to -s
buy them with," the Sheriff said
as he closed his address..
The Sheriff urged the Kiwani-
ans that "if you see something,
hear something or are told some-
thing which you can't quite figure
out, call us and let us investigate.

It may just be a drug deal going

on right before you."

Geraniums Are A Colorful Favorite With Gardeners

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Geraniums are some of the
most popular flowering plants
grown in Florida. Their contrast-
ing bright flowers and dark green
leaves remain on the plants
throughout summer and early
fall. In this article I will talk
about improved propagation
methods developed by plant
breeders and cultural care gerani-
ums need for best growth.
Geraniums are colorful orna-
mentals that can add a cheerful,
nice appearance to your land-
scape. But, before you add gera-
niums to your home or yard,
there are some facts about their
propagation and care you'll need
to know. My information was pro-
vided by Extension Urban Horti-
culture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black, of the University of Flori-

day's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Science.
Traditionally, geraniums have
been propagated exclusively by
vegetative means. Commercial op-
erations took rooted cuttings
from disease-free stock plants
and sold them to local growers.
This method produced high quali-
ty plants for the homeowners.
But, the geraniums required
quite a lot of greenhouse time,
space, heat, and labor before they
were ready to sale. These costs
were passed on to the consumer.
Recently, however, there has
been a trend toward the more ec-
onomical production of gerani-
ums from seeds. Seed propagated
geraniums seem to perform just
as well as vegetative propagated
plants, producing smaller plants
at less cost. Geraniums grown
from seeds branch freely, aren't

as leggy, and seem to grow faster.
Whether produced from seeds
or cuttings, geraniums need good
cultural care to grow and look
their best. Start with healthy, dis-
ease-free plants, and put them in
an area that receives full sun.
Geraniums prefers a well-
aerated soil with good drainage.
Admittedly, this doesn't sound
like the kind of soil most of us
have around our Florida homes.
But, there are some things we
can do to improve soil conditions.
Try adding two or three inches of
organic matter to flower beds to e
increase both the water and nu-
trient holding capacities.

New research may help detect

He said that the emphasis in ,,
the program will be on a unique
combination of hands-on culinary
techniques and management
training. He added that classes
will be small and will be taught
by instructors certified by the
American Culinary Federation.
"The field is wide open, espe-
cially for those who will have their
double advantage of culinary ex-

blackrot, and take prompt action,
it is possible to save your plants

by using a commercial fungicide,
specially recommended for pythi-
um control. For more informa-
tion, check with your garden cen-
ter, or County Extension office.

New flower beds are frequent-
ly low in fertility. So, they should
be fertilized before planting, or at
planting time. Use a complete fer-
tilizer, such as 8-8-8, at the rate
of two pounds per 100 square
feet of soil surface. After the first
application, fertilizer may be add-
ed at the same rate on a monthly
Mulching benefits geraniums.
It prevents weed growth and con-
serves soil moisture. Grass clip-
pings, straw, wood chips and
sawdust are good mulch materi-
als. --
Occasionally, cutworm or cat-
erpillars will feed on geraniums.
They can be spotted easily, be-
cause they leave definite cut edg-
es on leaves where they feed. In-
spect your plants carefully and
destroy any cutworms, or cater-
pillars as soon as you see them. If
only a few are found, it isn't nec-
essary to spray the entire bed.
The most common diseases of
geraniums are nonspecific, which
means they attack other plants
as well. Black rot, or pythium
blackleg, caused by the fungus
pythium, has long been known to
attack geraniums. This disease
usually occurs in the propagation
stage, but it also can be found on
young plants. Geraniums that are
infested with black rot have a

other currents, Uman said.
Shorter lightning currents
may blast or bend objects, but
they don't last long enough to
bum, he said.
"It's like running your finger
through the flame of a match -
you don't get burned," he said.
"Continuing current is like hold-
ing your finger on ,the match. It
lasts long enough to hurt."
Uman and other scientists at
UF's lightning research laboratory
analyzed 400 lightning bolts near
Tampa Bay, the Kennedy Space
Center, Gainesville and Socorro,
New Mexico. To learn how long-
lasting lightning starts, the UF re-
searchers used television came-
ras an antennas to measure elec-
tromagnetic radiation in clouds.
Lightning's origins have re-
mained a mystery largely because
people can't see inside the cloud,
he said.
"Continuing current is na-
ture's arc welder," Uman said. "It

About 85% of the summer
maintenance work required on
power lines in Florida is blamed
on lightning. Much of this dam-
age is due to continuing current
strikes, which also cause most of
the nation's forest fires, he said.
Continuing current can be
recognized by a specific lightning
sequence which initiates it; that
is, a big stroke, followed by a
short interval and a small stroke,
he said.
Other scientists have not
studied the details of how, the
electromagnetic fields of continu-
ing currents change, said Uman,
whose research team includes a
visiting Soviet scholar.
June marked the beginning of
lightning season for Florida,
which experiences about 10
deaths and 30 injuries from light-
ning each year, Uman said.
Florida has more thunder-
storms than any other part of the
nation because it is hotter and
wetter, he said.
