DCA Has New

Ball Game for

p County Plan

Park Committee Over Ruled

In Awarding Salinas Bid
The fears of attorney Bob Moore were realized Tuesday night,
when Gulf County Administrative Assistant, Larry Wells, told the
County Commission the Department of Community Affairs is go-
ing to take another look at the County deficiencies in their Com-
prehensive Plan.
The DCA turned down the plan the first of the year, listing
some six pages of items in which Gulf County's version fails to
come up to what DCA wants in a plan.
for Wells, who has been directing preparation of the Plan
td through an engineering firm, said two weeks ago that the main
u- point of contention was the housing density to be allowed on wa-
be terfront property. The Board gave Wells authority to settle on a
7 density of two units per acre, but before the settlement could be
considered, the DCA has now said the entire six pages of criti-
cisms is due another look by their experts.
-- Chairman Ed Creamer asked, "Can't we challenge them?"
di- Attorney Moore quipped, 'You have that wrong. They are
challenging usl All bets are off! It's back to square one with
a- those folks!"
ed Wells said DCA would be setting up a hearing to discuss the
at several matters they are interested in, but he has no information
from them about what will be challenged or when the hearing
grs will be held. 'They haven't told us a thing except that they are
th coming. They may want to make an example of Gulf County,"
h, Wells said.
The Board and parks committee chairman, John Reeves got
into a hassle about who would build the new recreation park at
Dead Man's Curve; estimated to cost some $180,000 by the time
the project is complete.
Reeves wanted to award the contract to a Lynn Haven con-
struction company, even though their bid was $14,000 higher
than the bid of a Port St. Joe firm.
County Building Officer, Ralph Rish, a member of the bid in-
spection team, recommended the Port St. Joe firm getting the
bid. Rish said, the low bidder, L&W [Leslie and Ward] Construc-
tion Company would be hiring local people, using local sub-
contractors, buying materials from local firms "and, besides
that, their price is $14,000 less than the Lynn Haven firm."
Reeves held out for McCormick Construction Company of
Lynn Haven, claiming they were more experienced and he felt
they would do a better job and would utilize local products and
labor as much as they could. Reeves and Commissioner Nathan
Peters, Jr., kept hammering at the fact L&W had never built a
park before.
Rish said, "Anyone who can build a house can build this
Chairman Ed Creamer, who had then taken up the cause of
L&W, asked building inspector, Don Butler, "What kind of build-
ers are these people? Can they build a house?"
Butler replied, 'They're good builders. They do good work."
Creamer then recommended the board accept the low bid of
L&W and Peters made a motion to accept the bid of McCormick.
Peters never got a second on his motion. Commissioner Traylor
then made a motion to award L&W the bid and when his motion
was approved on a 3-1 vote, Reeves, who had grown tense by
this time, turned to Leslie and said, "We'll be your worst night-
mare in this job."
But the majority of the Commission stood firm and put their
confidence in L&W.
Frank Healy re-opened the'old argument of who owns the
,*e' beach at Yons' Addition in St. Joe Beach.
Healy said a house owner on the beach side of the highway,

Williamsburg Water, Sewer Funded by Grant

The Florida Department of
Community Affairs, advised Gulf
County late last week that fund-
ing had been approved for the
long-sought Williamsburg water
and sewer project.
The subdivision, which lies
southwest of Wewahitchka, adja-
cent to the city limits, has re-
quested the sanitary services be
provided for at least 10 years,
and the county has periodically
petitioned for grants for construc-

tion during that length of time.
Last year, the Commission
said they were giving up on the
project, after several consecutive
years of rejection, but a last-
minute application, filed by
county building department di-
rector. Ralph Rish, more or less
in desperation, bore fruit.
$571,925 APPROVED
According to the DCA, Gulf
County will receive a total of

$571,925.00 for the project,
which will provide water and sew-
er in some parts of Williamsburg
and only water in a portion of the
The City of Wewahitchka will
be the provider of the services,

is served by the adjacent systems
of the City of Port St. Joe.
The grant will provide funds
for 5,900 linear feet of sewer line;

19,300 linear feet of water lines
and funds for resurfacing 56,080
square feet of paving, which will
be disturbed by the installation.
Rish said, 'This county has
been working for that project for
a long time now. The only way it
could be feasible was for the
grant to be approved. The people
in Williamsburg needed this."
16th ON LIST
The Gulf County application

wound up number 16 on a list of01
30 projects which were approved
by the grant funding process.
The state had $14.2 million
to spend on projects such as Wil-
liamsburg, and the local project
finally surfaced near enough to
the top to be funded.
Funding is based on a com-
plicated point formula and is pro-
vided only for projects for which
plans have been prepared.

Here we are, right smack in the middle of Earth Week, all of
which was kicked off by Earth Day on Monday.
A few years ago, we had never heard of Earth Day. We all
had heard of earth, but it was just something to move, along
with heaven, to find something. It was also what messed up
kids' pants and allowed the washing powder manufacturers to
do a land-office business. Earth was also half of the term, "Moth-
er Earth," and was a term of nurture.
Now, almost everyone is aware that the term, "Earth Day," is
being used to call to our attention the need for all of us to pay
special attention to the needs of the dear old Mother. She is fall-
ing on hard times and some unscrupulous people are treating
her rather harshly, all in the name of progress.
While we are forcibly bringing the need for pampering our
Mother Earth to the attention of all mankind, it is also gratifying
to see that more and more men [and women] are beginning to re-
alize that Earths wear out just like automobiles, all day suckers
and tennis shoes. There is a limit to just how much even Mother
Earth can endure and there are those who feel that this limit of
endurance is getting dangerously close in some things, such as
clean water, clean air, raw materials, fertile soil and room.
This is the reason for Earth Day.
This is the reason for Earth Week.
Mother Earth has just so much room, just so much dirt, just
so much iron ore, just so much water, just so much oxygen and
just so much capability for producing more. There are those who
don't worry about the volume of these necessary commodities
which Earth has supplied in such abundance in centuries gone
by. then, there are those who feel we should worry about them.
It's a sure thing, that if the supply is limited, when it is gone, it
will be gone for good. -
We know the dread-sayers cannot prove their point. But,
then, neither can those people who don't worry about the future
of the Earth. We feel it better to be safe than sorry. Let's worry,
at least a little, and get into the swing of the theme of Earth Day.

What's In A Name?
City Commissioner Johnny Linton is mounting a crusade
against what he calls the sorry service, bad attitude and high
price of Gulf Cable TV, which serves Port St. Joe.
It's easy to mount a vendetta against Gulf Cable TV, because
they reside somewhere up in Georgia and Delaware, which is a
far piece the other side of Wewa. It's much easier to oppose from
long distance than it is face to face.
We are no rooting section for Gulf Cable TV, by any means.
Their reaction to our suggestion that they consider bringing in
Channel 6, out of Tallahassee, on a dependable basis, rather
than Channel 4 out of Dothan, turned us off, but good.
To take up Linton's claim that the service is ifidependable is
something we can't, honestly, verify from first-hand experience.
While not perfect, we have not found their dependability to be
grossly inadequate. We have heard the complaints which Linton
has heard. Mostly the complaints have boiled down to the fact'
that other communities get up to 45 or 50 channels available for
their $18 to $20 rental payment per month. That doesn't really
^bother us.
What we are concerned about is that we don't get a CBS
channel with a good degree of dependability. We have always felt
we are due that and Gulf Cable TV, being in the cable TV busi-
ness, which specializes in bringing viewable TV to out-of-the-way
places, should make it their business to do just that or change
their name to Gulf Try-to-bring-you Cable TV.
While we are at it, there could be some improvements on
Channel 7, perhaps the most-watched channel on the Gulf
Coast in Northwest Florida, and with the station only 45 miles
from us. This station is very susceptible to atmospheric condi-
tions, even with its close proximity.
We can understand problems with every channel on the
board with this one exception. We realize we are in a fringe area
and that we are going to experience periodic reception problems.
Along with that, we feel that Channel 7 should be about as con-
stant a television channel as could be provided in the Port St.
Joe area. And, it is now not so.
We can't go along with Linton because we feel his solution
would be the installation of two mediocre services in the area
with no satisfaction from either. As a matter of fact, it may serve
to erode the service we now receive. We'll join with him in
punching up Gulf TV, trying to encourage them to live up to
their name.

\Hunker Down with Kes

Blow Wind, Blow

Now, I know what's about to
go through your mind "Oh no,
not another baseball story." But If
you can persevere all the way to
the bottom of this thing I believe
you'll find it's a story set in April,
about life, of young dreams and
old memories, on friendships firm
and lasting, encompassing a love
above and beyond well, you get
the idea.
I'll never forget Jackie Burns.
He was five years older than me

and my big brother's best friend.
When they'd choose up sides for
the Saturday morning ball game
I'd be left standing alone, too little
to help either side. Listen, I don't
blame 'em, I was an automatic
out and a defensive liability.
Leon, who promised Mom just
twenty minutes ago he'd watch
out for me, was afraid I'd get
hurt. You ever been the only un-
chosen one? As they flipped to
see who would bat first Jackie

would say kind'a low like, but
very firm, 'We'll take Kesley."
I have been in love with Jack-
ie Bums for 37 years.
When the first guy hit the ball
hard into right field and right
through my legs, it didn't matter.
As I turned and raced to catch up
with it, I could feel my little heart
pounding, the wind in my face,
my cap flying off I was in the
A few years later, Leon, Jack-


ie and that group had moved on
and now I was a captain and
choosing sides. I'd sometimes
pick Larry Ridinger first. He was
too small and not much of a
player and couldn't help us win,
but Jackie. Burns taught me a
lesson I never forgot
I graduated from a cow pas-
ture to little league fields, to high
school parks, to college stadiums.
The feeling was the same in each.
People talk about winning and
losing. I know that stuff is impor-
tant and I played like the dickens
to win. you can bet your last
nickle on that, but the privilege of
baseball is the game. To round
first base with heart pounding,
cap flying off, the wind in your
face .... to hook slide into sec-
ond base, to see your team mates
clapping for you, to glance up at
that beautiful sun... in the early
spring even the sun had stitches
on it.
Baseball is a life experience. I
hit a home run off of old Ernie
Ball in a town team game one
Sunday afternoon. I was fifteen
when I made the "jump" to the lo-
cal men's team. The next time up
Ernie drilled me with the first
pitch right on my left shoulder I
knew better than to rub it. Ernie
was stomping all over the mound
as I trotted down to first. I com-
mented to their first baseman
that Erie must be upset what
with putting the lead off man on.
"Son,, Ernie is made because he
didn't hit you in the head."
My high school graduating
class held its twenty year reunion
a few years ago. I shook hands
with Palm Collins and Kenny But-
ler. said hello to LaRenda Brad-
field and a few others. I hugged
Bobb Brewer's neck and had to
fight back tears. You see, Bobby
had dropped down in the dirt a
thousand times and thrown his
body in front of another curve I'd
bounced two feet in front of home
plate. I wanted to see Bobby, I
wanted to meet his son, I wanted
to know how he was doing. We
had jumped into each other's
arms when we beat the Rotary for
the little league championshipp.
We cried in each other's arms a
week later when we lost the dis-
trict playoff. He'd felt that wind in
his face ... we were one.
Folks, I'm too old to play now.
But I can still dream. The local
high school team every once in a
while will let me come out and
practice with them. What a great
group of guys. I bang out ground
balls to the infield for as long as
they'll let me. The guys catch 'em
just like it's real practice. I get
out on the mound and try to
"smoke 'em on the inside" like I

One of Our "Apples" Has to Go to the Doctor

puters for nearly two years, now,
and they are still a mystery to
me. Here at The Star, we use Ap-
ple's McIntosh Classic machines,
equipped with a Ready-Set-Go
4.5 Desktop Publishing program
to set our type and make ads and
special lay-outs.
There are two young ladies in
our composing department-
Shirley Ramsey and Lisa Given-
who say they understand what is
going on with these machines. I
can't say for sure that they do
and it's a lead-pipe cinch I can't
say for sure that they do not. The
type keeps getting set and the
paper continues to go out and
those three apples sitting on a ta-
ble in the composing department
are the only type-setting ma-
chines which get turned on each
and every week.
I still have my old, dependa-

ble Linotype machine hooked up
and in a pinch, I could turn it on
and get some type set. I want to.
make it perfectly clear that I hope
I don't have it to do. Then there is
the sophisticated Edit-Writer,
made by Compugraphic, which
we purchased back in 1982,
which has been setting forlornly,
unused and un-noticed in a cor-
ner all by itself for the past two
Obsolete at such a young and
tender age.

I AM ABOUT convinced there
is one very small, very smart,
midget inside each of these Ap-
ples, making it produce what it
needs to produce. I have to admit
the Apples are considerably
smaller and smarter than the old
Linotype or the Compugraphic.
Only time remains to tell whether
or not they will be as dependable
or as tough as their precedessors.
The old Compugraplhic ma-

chines were sort of first edition
computers. Their innards, or
working parts, which sorted out
sizes, type sizes, justified lines of
type, :centered words, etc., were
computer driven. They had a pot
full of diodes, resistors, chips,
memory banks, transistors, etc.,
inside which did the sorting out
of commands and gave a few of
their own. There was a camera
with a film stip on a whirling disk
which furnished the type face on
a piece of photo sensitive paper
for production of a hard copy.
Still, their operation present-
ed its share of a mystery. They
were sort of an introduction to
the latest computer method of
setting type.
With a mechanical gadget or
two, it's understandable how
things get done.
With a collection of logic
boards, transistors, resistors,
memory chips, display screens,
miles of wiring and a laser printer

to transfer the input out to a
"hard" copy, there's things there
which someone of my limited
electronic knowledge can't com-
My electronic knowledge is
limited to checking to see if a fuse
is blown.

tronic boxes, with the gerile in-
I don't know how to fix them.
I don't even know how to explain
their ailments, when they have
ailments. Sometimes I'm not even
aware they have a problem. The
computer age has left me that far
behind, but here I am right in the
middle of it, trying to use some-
thing I don't understand. _
Everything has a code. If you
want to set the type you are read-
ing in this column, for instance,
one must first call on the Ready-

Set-Go program, ask for the 4.6S
division, call up the Master Page
set-up [which I keep In the ma-

When you get to the end, you
must first go to the "menu" and

Wendell Campbell

A Boy's Biggest Thrill

It's a shame, to me, that adults can't maintain or recapture the
thrills of childhood.
There are adults among us that will swear by everything that is
good that they enjoy life and are thrilled more and more with each
passing day.
Most of these people bear watching because they are rowing
with one oar, not playing with a full deck or they are just plain cra-
zy. What's sp thrilling about having to get up each morning and go
to work or having to sit at the kitchen table each month, with head
in hands, and try to figure out how to make the paycheck stretch to
pay all the bills.
I've had more fun with a shovel in the barnyard!
There's no doubt, in my mind, that the children enjoy life more
than adults. It is, I think, the "first time" of doing things that makes
'life so thrilling to them.
I recall a cousin visiting us during the summer when I was a
boy. He was a "city-slicker" and I was aware that there was a vast
difference in what he and I enjoyed, or what was thrilling.
He enjoyed going into the woods, going swimmIng in the creek
and stuff we did every day. I wanted to go to the movies, ride the
city bus and sneak a look at some of those magazines hidden be-
hind the counter at the news stand.
I didn't get to travel to the city often. Like many other country
boys, I had to find thrilling things to do around our country home.
A few of my thrills, as a young boy, were:
*Killing my first hog. I know that may not sound like much to
most of you, but to a country boy it marked the beginning of man-
hood. When you were allowed to "gut" the hog, you had made it.
*Milking my first cow. Again, it's no big thing, but there's an art
to milking a cow. I dare say there's not one out of ten people walk-
ing the streets today that can milk a cow. I could knock a fly off a
fence post at ten paces.
*Learning to whistle. I learned to whistle while milking a cow.
When the whistle came out, it scared the cow and she kicked the
bucket, spilling an almost full pall of milk.
*My first pair of white, buckskin shoes. My brother gave them
to me when I was in the eighth grade and, although they were
slightly "used," they were in good shape and I was pleased as punch.
to have them. They did wonders for my ego for several months. '
*My first date. That was a "biggie!" I double-dated with a frieAd
Sand was as scared as I have ever been in my life. The girl, Myrtle
Silkstringer, was quite aggressive for a country boy like myself.
That stinker actually tried to hold hands with me during the movie.
on our first date! What a tramp!
*My first real, live striptease show. My older brother is responsi-
ble for introducing me to the wild world of bare, human flesh. I was
.young and innocent and it was quite a shock. There was this beau-
tiful woman taking off all her clothes in front of all those men. I felt
Sso sorry for her. I knew she must have had an invalid mother at
home she was supporting. I just wanted to take her out of there. So
did everyone else in there.
*Leaving home. It wasn't that I didn't love my mother and fa-
ther, because I did. It was the fact that I had had all the choppin'
wood, plowing, milking, hoeing, sloppin' hogs and killing chickens
that I wanted. In fact, I was desperately scared to leave home, but
not scared enough to stay.
*My biggest thrill, as a boy, was the first time I kissed a girl. I
always knew I wanted to but I had always been frightened. I don't
remember what I was frightened of, but, believe me, I was shaking
all over. Looking back, I realize I should have tried it long before I
did because it is so much fun. I wasted a lot of years because I was
28 years old at the time.
Thrills are really thrilling to a country boyl

seven feet of what he feels should be public beach property. Hea-

The Commission offered Healy sympathy and understanding
in his complaint, agreeing that the fence should not be placed on
the property dedicated for public use, but hesitated short of say-

Healy was advised to organize other property owners in Yon's

Fraud Charge
Dear Wes:
I'd like to first say that I'm
Don Parker's brother and am as-
suredly biased in his favor. I
would however like to' comment
on the charge of fraud filed
against him.
Don has worked in the small
loan business here in Port St. Joe
for about 35 years. This business
has had five different owners dur-
ing this time and continued to
employ Don. I submit that this
hardly substantiates the personi-
fication of one of fraudulent in-
I've also heard of people who
continued to collect unemploy-
ment compensation after return-
ing to work. These people were
,told simply that they would re-
ceive no benefits next time they
were laid off until the weeks
evened up with the overpayment.
Why was this arrangement not
accorded Don?
I am,
Sincerely yours,
Bruce Parker

17th, at the Garden Center with
members of th St. Joe Garden

has an authentic, privately com-
missioned totem pole. The totem



Mr. and Mrs. Wayne W. Ben-
ner of Fernandina Beach have an-
nounced the engagement and
forthcoming marriage of their
daughter, Sherry Ann Benner, to
Jerald Frank Graddy, son of Mr.
and Mrs. L. Frank Graddy Jr. of
The bride-elect is a 1979
graduate of Fernandina Beach
High School. She is employed in
loan operations at Gainesville
State Bank.
Her fiance is a graduate of
Wewahltchka High School, Gulf
Coast Community College and re-
ceived a bachelor's degree in fi-
nance from Florida State Univer-
sity. He is senior vice president/
branch administrator at Barnett'

is titled "Raven Stealing the
Moon". It is a "raven pole" and
contains likenesses of part of her
and her husband's face.
The Garriss' daughter, Sue
Ellen, knew how much her moth-
er had admired the totems on a
trip they made to Alaska in 1989.
When it came time to leave Alas-
ka, Ann said that a totem was
what she wanted for a souvenir.
By inquiring around, Ann
found that there are only three
men still doing the carving the
old way, by hand with special
tools. She contacted one of them,
Lee Wallace, and they signed a
contract for him to carve a totem.
Ann wanted one of an eagle but
she had to settle for a raven be-
cause she was not a tribe mem-
ber and the eagle is sacred.
By mid-1990, Ann had nearly
given up on receiving her totem
or hearing from Wallace but he
did contact her in December say-
ing that the snow was so deep in
Ketchikan, Alaska, that he could
not reach his workshop.
Sue Ellen had him flown to
Atlanta so he could carve her
mother's totem pole in her gar-
age. A four foot section of red ce-
dar was air freighted for the pur-
pose. Wallace, who is a member
of the Tlinet and Haida tribes,
spent three weeks carving the to-
tem. It now weighs 130 pounds.
The poles are unique to a
small area of southeastern Alaska
and western British Columbia.
The figures carved symbolize both
characters and events of the my-
thological age and the experienc-
es and adventures of ancestors
and living persons.
Ann has a constant reminder
of a very pleasant trip and fond
memories of her Alaskan vaca-

Q. When do babies start teething?
A. A good average is five months. Some families have an earlier
teething pattern and some families teethe later.
Q. How do I get my child to try new foods?
A. Babies usually like to do what the parent is doing. When new
foods or new versions of foods are being presented and the parent is
seen to eat them, usually the baby will want some too. If an older
child has gotten into refusing new things, it is legitimate to require
them to taste the new food. I do not believe in sitting a child down
and making them eat a plateful of something they hate, but they
will never know if they like it or not if they refuse to taste.
Q. Should I worry if my child plays with imaginary friends?
A. Most young children have an imaginary friend or animal to
play with at some time. As the child gets older he usually becomes
more involved with real people and things and the imaginary ones
take a less prominent role.
Q. How can I help my child make better grades in school or at
least strive to make better grades in school?
A. Expect your child to work up to their ability, but do not ex-
pect A's and B's from a child able to do only C's. Stress education
and educational pursuits at home. Set aside a regular time for
homework. Be sure the child has a good table surface on which to
work with a good light for seeing what he is doing. Help your child,
if he needs help, or see that he gets the help he needs if you ae un-
able to help. The television should be off in the house until all
school work is finished.
Q. How do I help my child be less fearful of doctor, nurse or
A. There should be discussions at home about people that help
and how they help. Visits to the doctor or dentist at times when the
child is not scheduled for a visit. He should be comfortable before
he needs to be seen.
Q. How do I get my child to overcome shyness?
A. Visits back and forth between family members allows the
child to relax and become friendly with different family members.
As he gets older, parents should teach a standard greeting or ap-
proach Say Hi Hello or How are you? Offer a hand to shake.
Babies should be held on parent's lap until they become com-
fortable and indicate the desire to move out and about.

Improved Drainage

Expected to Head Off Flooding Problems
- Nearly three years ago, the St. Joe Beach area suffered a
flash flood, which did considerable property damage along Amer-
icus Avenue, which runs parallel with Highway 98.
The engineering firm of Baskerville-Donovan was hired by
the county to study the cause and come up with a solution,
which would at least ease the problem, should such torrential
rains ever visit the area again.
One of the solutions was the suggestion for installation of
huge box culverts on each of the street intersections along Amer-
icus, to handle the water run-off in greater volume than the old
system was capable of doing.
The county Department of Transportation has just recently
completed a project of installation of the large concrete box cul-
verts along the street. There is no guarantee that there will never
be another flood along Americus Avenue, since the low-lying
area depends on low tides for good drainage operation. But, so
nearly as adequate drain ducts can provide for flood prevention,
the new culverts should be an effective solution to the problem.

A Blacksmith who was known for his strong

unbeliever to explain why God would let him suf-
His explanation went like this: "I take a piece of
iron, put it in the fire, and bring it to a white heat.
Then I strike it once or twice on the anvil to see if
it will take a temper. I plunge it into the water to
change the temperature, put it into the fire again
and then put it on the anvil and make it into a
useful article. If it will not take a temper when I
first strike it on the anvil, I throw it into the scrap
heap and sell it at a low rate. I believe God has
been testing me to see if I will take a temper. I
have tried to bear it patiently as I could, and my
daily prayer has been, 'Lord, put me into the fire if
you will; put me into the water if you think I noed
it; do anything you please, 0 Lord, only DON'T

A look at her family would
never reveal this. Her parents
both work hard, attend church,
and appear to have her interests
at heart.

Like other children, Heather
is learning who she is from "her

of herself as a "victim." She is
someone to be used and taken
advantage of.

With ,the proper care, her
family has the potential of provid-
ing a wholesome environment to
grow up in. Without it she may
always have difficulty trusting
others. If her therapy is incom-
plete, she will, follow a pattern of
failed relationships, self-abusive
behavior, unhappiness, and
bouts of depression. With that
background she will likely repro-
duce children in her own image.
Kids like Heather can't care
for themselves. They depend on
responsible adults to look after
them. In years gone by the state
would have taken this .responsi-
bility by providing funding for her
treatment. This is no longer as
true as it used ,to' be. The state,
by its own admission, is broke.
More and more dysfunctional
families like Heather's will be go-
ing on a waiting list, hoping for
eventual treatment.
A tax deductible check to the
Gulf County Guidance Clinic, 311

our school," Williams said. He
said he would be completing his
training this spring and will take

Up-to-Date Shots Are Required .

As the new school year ap-
proaches, parents are reminded
that Florida law requires all chil-
dren attending school to have up-
to-date immunization records.
For the parents of children who
have not completed their immuni-
zations, early planning can help
avoid a last minute rush.
The childhood immunization
series should begin at two
months of age and continue on
schedule. If the schedule is fol-
lowed, the child will complete the
series by age 18 months long
before school entry. This early
protection is very important be-
cause diseases like measles and
pertussis (whooping cough) are
most serious in young babies.
To protect the health of
school children, children of all
grades in 'any Florida school -
public and private must be ful-
ly immunized against diphtheria,
tetanus, pertussis (whooping
cough), polio, measles, mumps,
and rubella. The same immuniza-
tions are required for children at-
tending a Florida licensed child
care facility. "In addition, child
care attendees will soon be re-
quired to have proof of immuniza-
tion against Haemophilus b
("Hib") disease. To attend school
or child care, these immuniza-
tions must be recorded on an

HRS Form 680. If a child's immu-
nization record is on a different
form, staff at the local HRS
* County Public Health Unit can re-
view the information to make cer-
tain the child is properly immu-
nized for age and then copy it
onto a Form 680. Students with
permanent medical exemptions or
religious exemptions are required
to show proof of exemption upon
entering any school of licensed
child care facility in the state.
Immunization early in life and
the presence of Florida's immuni-
zation laws are as important as
ever. Dr. Charles Mahan, HRS
Deputy Secretary for Health and
State Health Officer, states,
'These laws protect children from
diseases which can have severe
effects, such as deafness, mental
retardation, and sometimes even
death. Some of the diseases, such
as measles, have actually been
increasing in Florida."

which immunizations children
need and when they should re-
ceive them:
