City Hikes Its Water Rates by 250 Per 1000 Gallons

the Beach Water system will ap-

Commission Tuesday night.
The Board voted unanimous-
ly to hike their charges for treat-
ed water Tuesday, effective with
the November 1 billing.
The hike in water charges
was first introduced August 15,

read for the first time.
Port St. Joe also sells treated
water to the Oak Grove Water
District, the Highland View Water
District and the Beaches Water
District. All of these districts are
administered by Gulf County,
who has not announced an in-
crease in rates as yet. Since all
districts are operated on a non-
profit basis, the hike in water
charges is expected to be passed
along to the customers in the
several districts.
The new water rates, inside
the City will be $1.50 per thou-
sand gallons, when the new rate
goes into effect. _
The Commission said the rate
increase was made necessary due
to the continued hike in chemi-
cals charges, testing, pumping
and distribution charges.
The City operates its-water
and sewer systems on a self-
sustaining basis, with the cus-
tomer bearing the cost. The sys-
tem is not financed by ad valo-

In addition to water use
charges being increased, there

was a hike in connection and

year term on the Wewahitchka
City Commission Tuesday in light
McDaniel defeated challenger
Tommy Morgan, who was seeking
his first public office.
The McDaniel-Morgan race
was the only question on the We-
wahitchka ballot and attracted
only 344 of the City's 1,443 regis-
tered voters.
McDaniel, 70, is a retired in-
surance salesman and Morgan,

eral hardware.

for a variance to replace the un-
derground tanks with an above
ground storage system.
Cain said the tank will be lo-
cated immediately behind their
switching office on Fifth and Long
and will be situated 150 feet from
Sixth Street and 50 feet from
Long Avenue. The tank will be
connected by underground line to
the company's building.
The tank will be used to store
3,000 gallons of number two die-
sel fuel. The emergency generator

furnishes power to the switching
equipment in case of public pow-
er failure.
The Commission agreed to
advertise the variance and give
the telephone company its an-
swer at their next meeting date
on September 19.
The Commission approved a
set of by-laws presented by the
newly organized Downtown Im-
provement Commission.
The Commission is made up
of seven members appointed by

the City Commission last month.
The group is working with a team
from the University of Florida

Who Cares?

Voyager II has taken off into the hinterlands of nothingness
in outer space, and, according to the predictions of scientists,
will travel on for centuries, scanning the heavens, but not nec-
essarily sending signals back to earth.
Already, the distances Voyager II have travelled are unbe-
lievable and not comprehendable by people who consider a tho-
sand mile trip something to be planned and mapped out for
days before attempting.
The mathematical equations necessary to work out the itin-
erary of Voyager II can't be grasped by most people. The com-
plications of just getting a space ship into orbit is not what one
would classify as light after dinner conversation.
Not only did Voyager II and its mission take a lot of plan-
ning, it took almost as much money as it did planning. That lit-
tle close-up look of the planets by scientists was, without a
doubt, the most expensive peek in man's history, except maybe
for the one Eve took when she looked at the difference between
good and evil.
The fact that Voyager II cost so much money for the nebu-
lous good this fleeting glance at other planets might give, has
caused some good thinking people to wonder if maybe that
money might have been wasted.
"After all," writes Andy Rooney, "Who cares if there are vol-
canoes out there spitting ice 30 miles into the air?"
Evidently, some of our scientists do, because they are all ex-
cited about the discovery. To the excessively curious, such dis-
coveries are a high they experience which is indescribable. To
those of us who are sort of the "So what?" mentality, we wonder,
if the benefits will ever be worth the expenditure even if it
did keep a lot of Americans working for the two or three years
of preparation and the 10 years of the voyage.
While we're not as excited as Carl Sagan is aboutthe the travels
of Voyager II, we're still experiencing some elation over the ac-
complishments of our nation in space exploration. When the
novelty of the accomplishments of Voyager II wears off, we'll
probably join a host of other Americans wondering if the ac-
complishments will ever balance off the expense involved.

WWIII Postponed
With the observance last week of the golden anniversary of
the beginning of World War II, we're sure you and everyone
else has noticed we have not had a major war for the past 50
years, where, previous to World War II, they seemed to come
along about every generation.
To those who lost their lives, their health or their sanity -
and to the loved ones of those who did-any "police action",
drug bust, hostage incident or whatever, seems like a major
war. A person is just as dead from conflict, even if he gets killed
while funning around.
The point is, in World War II, the "big bomb" was dropped
for the first time. killing thousands of people in just instants.
The United States, as a nation, has been exploring its con-
science ever since trying to determine if dropping "the bomb"
was the proper thing to do at the time, with Germany surren-
dered and Japan squeezed down to its homeland, after being
spread all over the South Pacific.
We understand the pilot of the Inola Gay, which dropped
that first atomic bomb, has been plagued by mental problems
ever since. He was devastated by the destruction his actions
caused, even though he sort of knew what to expect.
Of course, we can offer this opinion from the viewpoint of
not having been actively involved in the transport or dropping
of the bomb, nor of having to endure its destructive power, but
we must surmise the bomb has saved countless millions of
lives if it is mostly responsible for 50 years having elapsed
since our last major war.
World War II was billed at the time as the war to end all
wars, and dropping that atomic bomb seems to have come clos-
er to that utopia than all the talking mankind has ever done.
There was Korea and there was Vietnam. There was the
mid-East and there was Angola. There were a number of small
explosive conflicts all around the globe during this 50 years,
but there has not been a situation which has seen the whole
world involved in a life and death conflict.
Some of the situations which faced the world in the past 50
years could easily have developed into World War III, were it
not for the deterrent which exists in the hands of most nations.

means only one thing. And I want
you to remind your friends that
for 1989 you heard it first right
here. There's only 109 shopping
days left until Christmas. That, of
course, includes Halloween and
Thanksgiving. If you're a real

you start planning a trip to town.

Thanksgiving. Big day big meal,
big stomachs, all the fTamily to-
gether. It was a nice holiday. We
gave thanks. We felt thankful. My
boys, I'm afraid, see it only as the
last big meal before they get to
open their presents.
And hey listen, all of that mail
order stuff ain't bad either. The
best Christmas gift I ever gave
Cathy came that way. I bought
her a Ronco veg-i-matic. That
thing would slice it, cut it, mix it,

And, again, don't misunder-

activities. She plans her gifts. She
selects the right gift for each per-

Christmas. She spends time
thinking about what each person
would want. She works at it and
loves it. I couldn't live like that.
But I must admit over the
years she has given me some
unique and personal and very
special presents -'-of course, she

A Praying Mantis Grasshopper That Dines On Bugs?

I'm sure you also have won-
dered how such high paid base-
ball players can be so bad at
times, losing to teams they
should beat and then turn right
around the next night and put a
whipping on the league leader
with seemingly little effort.
I have seen the Pittsburgh Pi-
rates whip the Braves so regular-
ly, I have started to believe the Pi-
rates own the Braves and are
keeping them around so they will
have someone to beat.
With a young crop of fair to
good pitchers, Dale Murphy and
Lonnie Smith, they should be

able to whip just about anybody
they wanted to. Could It be they
don't want to?
I have watched them relig-
iously this summer, but thank
goodness, their baseball season
will soon be over.
I GUESS I'M addicted to the
Braves. Even when they start to
lose, I stick with them to the bit-
ter end. The last out must be
made-unless they are playing at
night on the west coast-before I
will go to bed.
On the days they aren't on, I

The Braves continue to be an

They are world champions at
And, much as I love baseball
and as much as I would like to
see the Atlanta Braves bring re-

can't figure out why they are so

At times, it seems to bbr the

At times, it appears as If-they

Mind you, this came A~er

I guess we should all be

more like me out there, who hang

Braves' games. They are just as

I don't suppose I will be around

Odie The Rest of the Story

Many of you read the poignant story several weeks ago about
Odie, the boy-dog, orphaned by a ruthless family by their moving
off possibly in the middle of the night and leaving him to fend for
That event marked a milestone in the life of Odie. It was a time
when he was alone and lonely, hungry and thirsty, living on repos-
sessed property, with nothing save the hair on his back and a pack
of fleas.
It was a turning point in his life, to say the least!
Odie, during what he thought was the last days of his life, was
befriended by a kind-hearted pest control technician who was sent
to the property on which he was living, to spray the fleas. The
thirst, hunger and loneliness not to mention the blood-sucking
fleas were just about to send Odie to the big dog pen across the
The pest control man took Odie home, fed, watered and doc-
tored him, but within months made plans to move, thereby casting
Odie into another state of insecurity. This time, however things
would be different.
You know what happened to Odie up until August 31, 1989.
This is the rest of the story.
On Wednesday evening, at approximately 6:30, the pest control
a man who rescued Odie from his former flea-infested home, received
a call from the Port St. Joe Police Department The dispatcher re-
ported that a lady had been frantically trying to reach him by phone
to talk to him about Odie and his rather tenuous position on planet
Earth. The lady had called long distance from Carrabelle, Florida.
The pest control man immediately sensed the urgency of the
matter and returned the call and found himself talking to a Mrs.
Nadie Cook, who resides in Carrabelle. She said that she had re-
cently lost her dog and was looking for another one. She said she
had just read the article about Odie's trials and tribulations and he
sounded like jtst the dog she was looking for.
After a brif conversation she asked, "Can I come pick him up
in the morning?"
The next morning, at the precise time given, Mrs. Cook arrived
with her daughter to take Odie to his new home. As a courtesy, I
accompanied Mrs. Cook and her daughter to pick up Odie.
It was love at first sight! "Oh, what a beautiful dog!" Mrs. Cook
exclaimed- when Odie ran out of the doghouse to greet us. "Odie,
I've come to take you to your new home. You and I are going to be
best friends for a long, long time."
.As Mrs. Cook reached down to pet Odie, he did what he always
does; he lay down and rolled over on his back and started licking
her hand. I told you before that Odie is a friendly dog.
When I put Odle in the back of the van, he immediately went to
a blanket Mrs. Cook had brought for him and lay down. "Just look
at him!" Mrs. Cook exclaimed, "he knows he's going home."
There's no doubt in my mind that Odie is at home. I called Mrs.
Cook yesterday to see how she and Odie were doing. 'We're doing
just fine," Mrs. Cook said, "and you should see Odie. He's just as
happy as he can be. Why, he won't even sleep in his dog house. He
wants to sleep on the porch with the cats."
What this world needs is more people like Mrs. Cook. My hat's
off to you, Mrs. Cook, and I wish you and Odie a long and happy

and get him to a treatment center.
Mrs. Gandy said she was notified
last week by the Department of Natural
Resources Marine Resources office in
St. Petersburg of reports the turtle had
been seen at the pier, feeding off fish
bait hooked to fishermen's lines at the
pier. The turtle had been hooked sever-

pretty good," Mrs. Gandy said. 'We tried
to swim into the water late Friday night,
but found that a three-flippered turtle
can swim rings around two-legged hu-

The attempt to capture the turtle in
this manner met with defeat. The next
night, the turtle rescuers showed up
with nets, determined to capture the in-

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
The common garden chrysan-
themums, popularly called
"mums" belong to a large group of
annual and perennial herbs in
the plant family called composite.
The cold-hardy, cultivated varie-
ties are used extensively as gar-
den and patio flowers for fall col-
The wide color range and
types and size of flowers tend to
increase the popularity of this
fine garden subject especially not-
ed for its excellent show of color
in September and October.
Flowers of mums can be con-
trolled by manipulating day
length, but most home gardeners
allow their plants to flower in the
normal fall season. Controlled
flower production at other sea-
sons is best left to commercial
cut flower producers.
Chrysanthemums will grow in
any well-drained soil that con-
tains an abundance of organic
-matter. If the soil is very sandy, a
three to four inch layer of peat or
other organic material should be
worked into the flower bed to a
six inch depth.
Mums are grown from
cuttings or division of old parent
clumps. Rooted cuttings are usu-
ally available from local garden
stores. Space the plants a foot
apart for a mass effect or two feet
apart to emphasize individual
After the plants are estab-
lished and at least six inches tall,
break off the top one or two inch-
es of the stem. This will encour-
age lateral branching and pro-
duce lower, bushier plants.
Two to three applications of
an 8-8-8 fertilizer at the rate of
one pound per one-hundred
square feet during the growing
season is sufficient to grow a
good crop of flowers. When apply-
ing fertilizers, keep the material
off the leaves. Water thoroughly
to distribute the fertilizer
throughout the root area.
Chrysanthemums may need
to be supported unless the plants
are the low, strong growing types.
Tall, weak stemmed plants defi-
nitely need some form of staking.

What did you study? How are you
going to do what you need to at
home?" If they say, "Nothing.",
don't you believe them! Plenty-
goes on every day and an inquir-
ing and caring parent can make
the difference. Look at their
books, homework and ask ques-
tions. If they know you are inter-
ested and expect more, they'll do
better in school.
Star Student of the Week -
Rocky Traylor
A second grader that is cer-
tainly a star Is Rocky Traylor, son
of Tommy and Cindy Traylor.
Rocky's grandparents are Katie
and Ray Stripling, and A.B. Tray-
lor. Rocky's favorite subject in
school is math and his favorite
sport is baseball. When he grows
up he would like to be a lawyer.
Rocky said he'd like to meet
Country singer George Strait,
"cause my mama likes to hear
him sing on the radio." If he could
travel somewhere, Rocky said
he'd like to visit Atlanta because
it is such a big city and has lots
of stores. Rocky loves to read and
he recollects that Peppermint
Fence was the last book that he
read. Rocky has a lot of heroes
that he admires and one that was
very special to him was his late
uncle Michael Traylor. Rock says,
"I like myself. I like school. I like
to play with my best friend."
Rocky is in the second grade
classroom of Mrs. Judi Lister.
September Trivia
The name September stems
from the Latin "septem" meaning
"seven". Before the inclusion of
January and' Fbi-uary, Septem-
ber was the seventh month in an- -
cient Rome.
Labor Day is a holiday in
which both the United States and
Canada celebrate. It is the first
Monday in September.

Brownies Meet
There will be a parents meet-
ing at St. Joseph's Catholic hall
(on 20th Street) Thursday; Sep-
tember 7 at 7:00 p.m. All girls
who are interested in being in
Brownies must have a parent
present at this meeting. Registra-
tion is to be paid and consent
forms are to be signed, so a par-
ent is needed.

If a wooden stake is used, drive it
into the ground at planting time.
Staking after the plants are es-
tablished can cause injuries to
the roots.
By careful choice of varieties,
flowers of many types and colors
can be provided from September
until Christmas, although an ear-
ly frost will injure some young
buds and thus reduce flowering.

$700,000 More Than Last Year

Gulf County government will
spend some $3 million during
the current fiscal year, which
ends on September 30, according
to administrative assistant Larry
Wells. Wells, in speaking to the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday, said gov-
ernment expense is continuing to
rise for various reasons. He cited
the fact the budget which would
go into effect on October 1, would
contain some $700,000 more ex-
penditures than the current
spending plan, even though the
millage rate has been cut slightly.
In explaining the financial
picture for Gulf County, Wells
said there are three sources of
revenue coming into the county
each year. These include ad valo-
rem taxes, fines, forfeitures and
charges and state funds.
There are three main portions
of the spending plan, and three
lesser funding points, which
make up the six divisions of the
county's financial responsibility.
Chief among the spenders, is
the Fine and Forfeiture Fund,
which includes the Sheriff's De-
partment, County Judge, Circuit
Judge, and other related activi-
ties. This department takes 25%
of the funds which come in each
The second most expensive
operation is the garbage depart-
ment which takes 23.2% of the
income. Wells said this service
alone would have topped the $1
million mark in the new fiscal
year had the County Commission
not decided to discontinue the 14
collection sites now served by the
solid waste department.
Wells said this move will not
cause any of the five employees

now involved in handling the
trailer sites to be released by the
county. Two will be put on the
road as monitors of indiscrimi-
nate waste disposal, one will be
an animal control officer and the
other two will operate the new
compactor being installed at We-
tappo near Wewahitchka.
Wells said the curtalment of
the trailer collection operation is
designed to save $200 000 per
year for the department
Both the Property Appraiser

and the Tax Collector use just
over 5% of the budget and the
Clerk's office needs 10% to pay
for its operation.
The big slice of the money
ple-32.1%0o--is used by the Com-
mission to fund operations it is
directly responsible for; These in-
clude the Board operation, Road'
Department, Mosquito Control,
Administrative Assistant, Civil
Defense, Commodity program,
Veterans Service, Maintenance
and Utilities. Parks, Health DeP- i'

apartment, Fire Departments, Am-
bulance, Agency contributions
and Indigents.
Wells said that, currently, the
new proposed budget will reflect
a $700,000 increase over the
present funding. This amounts to
a 19% increase in spending, even
though the village rate will be re-
duced by .135 mills.

Rotarians Learn About Purpose of

Shark 100 Club In School Athletics

The Shark 100 Club came on
the scene last year for the first
time and is designed to furnish
fan support to all sporting activi-
ties at Port St. Joe High School.
Booster Club spokesmen Teedy
Nobles and Willie Ramsey de-
scribed some of these activities
and solicited membership and
support before the Rotary Club
last Thursday.
Nobles said he felt it was the
responsibility of the fans to sup-
port the sporting activities of the
school with their presence and
their finances.
"We levy taxes to finance
schools to teach our young peo-
ple. Athletics is just ice cream for
us fans and parents," Nobles
said, in justifying the purpose of
the Booster Club in promoting.
and supporting the sports pro-
gram. ,
The Shark 100 Club, formed
last year has as its purpose, put-
ting the chocolate syrup, nuts
and fruit toppings on that ice
cream, so to speak.
Nobles said the new club
grew out of a discussion by
Booster Club members who
wished to do more than just sup-
port the athletic events with their
presence and their words of ap-
preciation and support.
"So, we came up with this
idea where members are asked to
buy memberships of $100 which
is to be used to purchase items
the regular school budget does
not cover and which the athletic
program cannot afford with its
own income," Nobles said. "For
instance, we had 67 members
last year and we purchased a 500
pound per day ice machine to be
used by the entire athletic de-
partment. The ice supply was
needed by every sport and there
was a constant battle to secure
an adequate supply, until we
bought the machine."
Nobles said a new year of ac-
tivities has just started for the
Shark 100 Club, with recruiting
new members, collecting dues
and beginning another school
year of supporting the athletic
program of the school.
'We hope to have at least 100
members this year and we al-
ready.have an ambitious program
lined out for the future," Nobles
said. He pointed out the organi-
,zatlon has Just purchased a pro-
fesslonal- type video recording
system for the department, to be
used in all sports. "We ventured
out on faith and obligated our-
selves for half the purchase price
because we had faith in the com-

Sharks Open Season with A Veteran Squad

After a strong showing in the
Bay County football Jamboree
last Friday night, there is no de-
nying the Sharks begin the 1989
season with a strong squad. Just
the simple fact that most of the
team has been playing together
as a team for three years tells
most anybody the Sharks should
be at least a credible team during
the year and should provide some.
interesting football for local fans
to witness.
But, as head coach Phil Lan-
ford says, that isn't accounting
for injuries, the mood of his
charges on any given night, nor
the mood of any one of their op-
ponents on any given night.
Lanford admits that on
paper, the Sharks look good, but

is quick to point out, "This team
doesn't 'have it made' You can
never tell what any high school
football team is going to do when
they go out on that field, so none
of our games are automatic wins
nor are any of them automatic
There is no denying, the
Sharks go into the 1989 season
loaded with talent and experi-
ence. With only one sophomore

starting on this year's squad, it is
a turn around from last year
when half the starters were soph-
Lanford has 18 experienced
players returning to the Shark
squad this season, including sev-
en seniors and perhaps the
biggest lineman in the Big Bend
in tackle Perez Davis, a 6'5"
sophomore who tips the scale at
a hefty 300 pounds. And Davis

moves around pretty agile for a
300 pound 15-year-old.
Anchoring the 34 man roster
this season will be returning vete-
rans: junior quarterback Bill
Ramsey, 151; junior linebacker
Matt Taylor, 162; junior defensive
.back Desmond Quinn, 152; soph
linebacker Calvin Pryor, 230;
senior tailback Nicholas Rolack,
183; senior fullback Russell
Cherry, 219; senior linebacker,

of winning the district champion-
ship also had all state linebacker
Ivey Henderson, all-state line-
backer Leonard Ray and excellent
running back David Barnes who
were lost to graduation, but Lan-
ford is expecting experience and

depth to fill these sizeable gaps.
The Sharks' main deficit this
year is that they will be on the
road for six of their 10 games.
Three of them are over 100 miles
away and two are 80 miles dis-
tant. "If we can stand the hard
miles, we ought to do pretty
good," Lanford said.
The Sharks will be focusing
on Jefferson County this year,
the team which beat them out of
the district championship last
year. Jefferson is reportedly load-
ed this year, too.

Gators Ranked Seventh In Poll

Despite words of caution
from a new coach who will be
heading them this year, someone
thinks the Wqwahitchka Gators.
a powerhouse- for the past few
years in northwest Florida, won't
lose too much of the impetus
they ended the season with last
year. The Gators are already
ranked seventh in state 1-A
standings even before the first
fooKball is kicked this year.
The ,Gators will be depending
on three things for another highly
successful season this year, as
they open up here in Port St. Joe
against their county rivals, the
The Gators will be depending
on the seasoned nucleus of 11 re-
turning veterans, the continued
explosive running of all-state Mi-
chael Myers and a smooth transi-
tion from the leadership of coach
* Dennis Kizziah to Charles Fort-
Kizziah moved to Blount-
I. S *

stown to take over the head
coach duties there after the end
of the school year last spring.
Fortner is no stranger to the Ga-
tor way of doing things, however,
since he has served as an assist-
ant coach in Wewahitchka for the
past 12 years.
The 11 starters give Fortner a
solid base to anchor his 27-man
squad; one of the largest teams to
be fielded by the Gators. The Ga-
tors lost the formidable foursome
of Andy Whitfield, Scott McLe-
more, Wayne Forehand and Phil-
lip Griffin from last year's 7-3
Gator veterans returning for
the 1989 season include: senior
end Ross Yowell, 205; senior
tackle Phillip Nunery, 290; senior
guard Ray Stripling, 150; senior
guard-linebacker Daryl Lister,
180; senior back, Wilbert Wright,
193; junior fullback Mike Sewell,
170; junior flanker, Mike Myers,
170; Junior tackle Chris Morgan,

220; junior center Dwayne Lay-
ton, 190; sophomore wide receiv-
er, Solomon Fisher, 135 and sen-
ior end-linebacker Travis Melson,
Fortner said many are look-
ing to his team for great things,
"and I don't know why. Don't
they know how many kids we've
lost; even since the spring? We've
got a long way to go."
Greensboro and Sneads are
expected to be the teams to beat
and both handed the Gators their
worst defeat of the 1988 season.
The Gators had only one other
defeat last year, and that was to
the hands of the Port St. Joe
Sharks, who ended up with their
own 7-3 season.

Sharks Take Wind from Tornadoes


Be especially cautious to keep objects small enough to be
swallowed away from infants and children. For they do not
expectorate, but attempt to swallow and inhale them into
the lungs. Teach them to spit anything out.
Do not stimulate a child to laugh or cry while food is in his
mouth. Physicians advise it is not wise to reach into an
infant's mouth to remove an impacted foreign object. Place
the victim face down across a bed or chair and call a
physician. For choking is the leading cause of accidental
death in the home to children under five.

yard line. Center Buck Fernandez 80 yards away. Williams kicked
scooped up the loose ball and ran the extra point and the Sharks
through the Bay line and back- had their 17-0 win over the Tor-
field, all the way to the goal line, nadoes.

The Sharks had 63 yards in
18 rushing plays and 86 yards
through the air, completing five
of seven pass attempts.

If you count their two wins in
the spring Jamboree over Ruther-
ford and Mosley, the Sharks now
own the football championship of
Bay County.
The Sharks took to the field
in Tommy Oliver Stadium Friday
in the fall Jamboree, playing the
first full half of the game against
the Bay High Tornadoes, turning
the Tornadoes into a small breeze
with a 17-0 thumping.
It took only 15 actual min-
utes to play the first 12 minute
quarter with the Sharks putting
seven big points on the board
against the Tornadoes.
The Sharks took the opening
kick-off and marched down the
field in 10 plays to put their first
TD on the scoreboard. Bill Ram-
sey completed three passes in the
drive and hit Ken Monette on a
five yard scoring strike with 6:34
still left on the clock. Nicholas
Rolack burst up the middle on a
10 yard draw play in the drive,
which saw the Sharks move the
ball both on the ground and in
the air against Bay.
In their first drive early in the
second quarter, Bay stopped the
Sharks for the first time on the
Bay 29 yard line and Bobby Wil-
liams trotted in for a 39 yard field
goal attempt which he booted
right through the center of the
uprights. Williams was three for
three on the night, kicking the
field goal and two extra points.
With six minutes still remain-
ing in the game, Russell Cherry
knocked the ball loose from the
Bay quarterback on the Shark 20

Nicholas Rolack (33) rushes as the offensive line clears the path.
