the purpose of the day's activities
was to introduce students to the
concepts of free enterprise, and
what it means to our economy
and nation. "Our your need to
understand that the free enter-

makes this country so productive,
and because of this we enjoy a
higher standard of living," stated
The day began when 20 local
business people, serving as busi-
ness hosts, met with the group of
students at the high school. After
watching a film about an entre-
preneur starting a successful
business enterprise, each busi-
ness host took a group of stu-
dents to their individual busi-
ness. The students learned about
the local business and also dis-
cussed the purpose of business,

Gulf Students Among State Leaders In HSCT Test Results

Gulf County's high school students are
still scoring above the state average in High
School Competency Testing, according to in-
formation released this week by the Florida
Department of Education.
'We have just received the testing results
yesterday from the state and have not had
time to fully analyze what it means to our
school system," Superintendent of Schools
Walter Wilder said Tuesday. 'They released
the news about the test results on a state-
wide basis, but we have just received our
'grade card'," Wilder said.
Again, Gulf County students were consid-
erably above the state average. 'We have
been above the average for every year the
test has been given," Wilder said. The cur-
rent High School Competency Test is the
most recent version of the old SSAT tests,
which students were compelled to take in the
10th grade.
"The test has gotten tougher each year.
This year's version was considerably tougher
than the first one given several years ago.

The testing, in effect, checks our students to
see if what we are teaching them is turning
into useful information, knowledge and
skills," the Superintendent pointed out. "It is
not a test of determining knowledge, but a
test of how effectively a student is grasping
and applying what he has been exposed to,"
he said.
Ninety-five percent of Gulf County's stu-
dents passed the communications portions
of the testing program, and 89% passed the
mathematics portions. 'That equates into a
pretty good grasp of the basic communica-
tion skills," Wilder said. "We must consider
that a student must answer 80% of the ques-
tions correctly to pass the test. He must
complete, correctly, four of the five parts of
each testing category," Wilder said.
State-wide, high school students had
86% of their number pass the communica-
tions portion and 75% of the mathematics
portions of the tests considerably below
the Gulf County average.

In Florida, a student cannot receive a
high school diploma unless he passes the
testing program. That, of course, is the rea-
son it is given in the 10th grade. If a student
fails, he has two more years in school to be-
come proficient in the areas in which he
failed to meet the requirements on the test
Only Calhoun County in the Panhandle
region, topped Gulf County in both category
results. Calhoun made the second highest
percentage in the state in the mathematics
category, with 95% passing.
Only students in Citrus, Hillsborough
and Sarasota had students scoring higher
than Calhoun and Gulf, in both categories.
Information received by Gulf County offi-
cials, didn't separate students in the
county's two high schools. They are all
lumped together in arriving at the final re-
Wilder said the testing program reflects

an increased awareness of Gulf County stu-
dents of the need for preparing themselves
academically for their future.
'We have seen the number of students
taking the SAT test [required for college en-
trance] triple during the past four years. We
have only four students graduating this year,
who are going straight into the work force.
The remainder are making plans to attend a
school of higher learning, a trade school, re-
ceive special training, or in some way better
their chances at having a secure future,"
Wilder said.
The emphasis on academic excellence
has also seen Gulf County as setting state-
wide records in the low incidence of drop-
outs. 'We consistently lead the state in this
category. Last year, every one of the high
school seniors, who entered the class at the
beginning of the school year, graduated in
Port St. Joe High School and only three
failed to do so in Wewahitchka. That's pretty
good statistics!" Wilder concluded.







The Dirt

The talk of the county during this past week was about
something which we thought would go unnoticed, or at most, re-
ceive a snicker or two. Although many of us knew the practice
was happening, and it was wrong, the practice of providing dirt
for this one and that one seemed to be one of those wrong things
we make right by the mere prevalence of the practice and which
most people turn their head at. ,
Not so, we find. Many citizens in our county are aware the
practice was going on, that the activity was illegal, and that they
disapproved! It was a surprise to us to learn that there was such
a widespread disapproval over private citizens receiving free dirt
from the county, largely, we suppose, because we figured that
down the road somewhere, they might want a free load and
wanted no problems with getting it.
If the "man in the street" citizen of this county know this
practice is going on, it is no deep, dark secret. Actually, the com-
missioners authorizing the distribution of the dirt were not try-
ing to keep it a secret. The matter was even discussed in a
County Commission meeting a few months back, with some of
the members, chiding another one or two for indulging in the ac-
tivity and saying, in effect, 'Well, if you are going to continue
this in your district, then I'm not going to sit back and allow my
people to go lacking."
That, dear friends, is how Gulf County got back into the dirt-
giving business, after many years of refusing to haul free dirt,
even for churches.
The fact remains that all the present County Commissioners
know the practice is a violation of good practice and Florida law.
The fact remains that a trip through the county can reveal a pile
of dirt here and another there, neatly piled on the county right-
of-way, of course, but still close enough to private property that
the owner is not inconvenienced too much when he fills his
wheelbarrow, time and again, to transfer the dirt to where it was
really designed to go-on the private property.
The individual Commissioners can argue the fact, correctly,
that the county did not haul any dirt and dump it on private
property. They have no defense, however, to the fact that they
have tempted-even encouraged-private citizens throughout
the county to become thieves of county property, when they re-
moved the dirt from the county right-of-way to their private
The county has no business being in the free dirt business ..
even if it were legal for it to do so. We have enough problem
raising money to pay for public services designed to benefit the
county as a whole, without getting into the business of providing
services for individuals.

"Cracking" Down

It's unfortunate to see the several incidents of the past two or
three weeks, when dealers in crack cocaine have been hauled in
by our law enforcement officers, charged with peddling the sub-
stance which .is causing our entire nation so much misery and
erosion of morals and civility.
i It is comforting to know, however, that our enforcement peo-
ple 'are on top of the problem and are diligently ferreting out
those who would stoop to deal in such merchandise, merely be-
cause there is big money to be made with handling it. We appre-
ciate the fact that several merchants have been taken off the
streets, even though the officials and this newspaper labor un-
der no illusions that the traffic will stop, or possibly even be
As both Chief Carl Richter and Sheriff Al Harrison said,
'There will be someone there to take their place by tomorrow," in
referring to what effect the arrests would have on the drug traf-
fic. The point is, there may be someone back on the street, ped-
dling the awful wares, but he or she will be there knowing the
risk is growing stronger with each passing day; that his [the ped-
dler's] days of activity are numbered even more closely than they
were the day before.
It's pitiful that adult, mature people would even need the
threat of apprehension and jail to prevent their dealing in the in-
sidious products of crack, cocaine, marijuana and the other
mind and body destroyers which have invaded our society. A
matter of good conscience should be the only deterrent needed.
As long as we need law enforcement personnel to control
these illegal activities, however, we're glad ours are diligent in
the matter of keeping the product at a minimum on our streets,
if not removed, totally.

A New Slant On Them Word Problems

Wouldn't you know It would
be just my luck The rain started
about an hour ago. Not one of
those gully washers, thank good-
ness, but pretty hard and
steady. Looked like it had set in
for a while. I wasn't soaked but I
was wet enough. It was a good
thing I had thought of Mr. Worth-
ington's barn. I'd come around
the back way so I wouldn't be
seen. The worst thing that could
happen to a 12 year old when he
was running away from home
would be to get "spotted" before
he got two miles from the house.
I'd put a lot of thought into
this running away thing. I'd been
thinking op it since yesterday af-
ternoon. School would be out in a
few weeks. You know what that
means. Mom was on us about the
grades. Parents kind'a let you
drift all year and then they expect
you to pull it out at the last min-
ute. Well, with old lady Dinwiddle
there wasn't no pulling it out. I
hate those math word problems. I
don't care how long it will take a

train travelling 60 mph to go from
Corinth to New Haven if the dis-
tance is 320 miles and the train
makes two 15 minute stops. The
only reason Miss Dinwiddle
knows the answer so easily is be-
cause she was there when they
laid the track.
I'll tell you something else, my
folks won't even miss me for a
couple of days. They'll be so busy
talking about how they can't be-

next year or doting over little Da-
vid that my presence, or lack of
it, will be no big deal. Of course,
that is 'til the trash needs to be
taken out or the hogs need to be
slopped. Then, they'll start look-
ing for me.
It was getting dark and cold. I
should a'thought about some ex-
tra clothes.
Being the middle child is
tough. Especially if your older
brother was about to be a senior.
And your little brother is "cute as
a button." Well, it won't matter
anymore. I'll come back some day

"Kesley, Is that you?"
I likened to have Jumped out

"What are you doing out here
in my barn?"
Mr. Worthington was Ricky
Gene's grandfather. He was a
nice enough old guy but I'd really
never said much to him. He
glanced over at my knapsack.
'You running away from home?"
'"Well sir, I auh, auh, I, auh-"
"Home can be pretty rough
sometimes, son."
'Yes, sir."
He shook the water off his hat
and sat down on a bale of hay be-
side me. Oh Lord, I know what's
coming. That speech about home
and how much my parents love
me and what a lucky boy I am.
I've heard that a thousand times .

sack. "See you've got your glove

"Son, wasn't Leon one of
those boys that took the red light
off the police car?"
'Yes, sir."
"And didn't he dig up the flag

'Yes, sir."

May has all these things and

The "more", we may have a little
trouble coping with.
MAY IS THE first month of

to pay our taxes.
That's a little tough to accept.
When you consider you work
more than a third of the year in
order to pay taxes, it makes you
pause to reflect -the situation. I
say, "over a third of a year" since
the first day of tax amnesty isn't

we can start working for our-
It's sort of like the old share

cropping arrangement so many of
our forefathers had to make with
a land-owner in order to make a
living. The tenant would work the
land, grow and harvest a crop for
the landlord, in order to receive a
share for his own.
Commercial fishermen still
work this way. When the boat
sells its catch, the boat [or boat
owner] gets a specific share, the
captain gets his share and the
crew shares the remainder of the
gain from the catch of fish. It has
worked this way for centuries.
A SORT OF "sidebar" to this
little observation is that May is
also the month the county adver-

Some people ask us, periodi-

than reading your name in the

that's a pretty good comparison.,

Surplus Paving Money

More Projects to Be Re-surfaced

TkLB717 Q'jAk2 ., rDlJK I A UL Ir. LI. 1UAQnAVALVML9-J1.01

The Gulf County Commission
met in a special session Monday
morning, to make some minor
changes in their road paving pro-
gram, which is currently under
Each County Commission
District has been allotted a cer-
tain sum of money from a $3.5"
million bond issue to pave roads
in the five districts which make
up the entire county.
Two of the districts are well
into their programs and it has
been ascertained they will have
some. money left after their pav-
ing priorities have been met.
Monday's meeting was to decide
on how to use this surplus money
- something the Gulf County
Commission has not had to do in
a while!
A fund which had been set

aside to re-surface C-30 from its
intersection with U.S. 98, to the
Gulf-Franklin line is almost com-
plete now, and it has been deter-
mined there will be money re-
maining when the project is fully
paid for.
With the extra money, the
Board decided Monday to con-
tract with C. W. Roberts Con-
struction Company, the prime
contractor, to stripe the newly
paved road, for a price of.
$15,752.80. Another $38,555.10,
will be spent putting a surface on
4,100 feet of the Country Club
Road. Both projects will be done
under the terms of the current
contract, using change orders for
the projects.
In District One, Murphy
Road, in Howard Creek, will be
paved, under the same circum-

stances. District One has a little
surplus money left after its list of
roads to be paved have all been
taken care of. The Howard Creek
road is some 1,365 feet long.
In District Two, $22,274 in
surplus money for that district, is
permitting the paving of an addi-
tional 3,500 feet of roads. No spe-
cific roads have been designated
for the paving as yet
in addition, the board decid-
ed to take a portion of its Secon-

" Owens Can't Understand Complaints

To the Editor:
I remember the first day I saw -
Port St. Joe, Florida.
It was early summer, proba-
bly 1957 or '58.
We (Ruth, my wife; Cindy, our
daughter; and Scoop, our black
Cocker Spaniel) rolled out of Co-
lumbus, Ga., headed south to vis-
it Ruth's sister.
Dean, her husband Joe, their
son Wayne and their dog (name
long forgotten), had moved from
Foley, Alabama over to a town
called Port St. Joe, Fla. a couple
of years earlier, to seek their for-
tune in the automobile business.
It wasn't easy getting to Port
SLt. Joe from Columbus in those
days. But we struck out on a Sat-
urday morning with adventure in
our hearts for what we envisioned
to be a great week on the Florida
It took us a little longer than
planned to get there, but late on
Saturday afternoon St. Joe came
into view. We found a phone,
called Dean and they came and
led us to their home. The drive
S had been somewhat taxing and I
had developed a slight headache.
By about 5:30 p.m., I needed
some relief, and finding no aspi-
rin in the house, I struck out to
get some.
Anyone who was around St.
Joe in those days, knows that
was a futile trip.. As I remember,
the only place open was a pool
hall and they didn't have any
aspirin. The sun was still high in
the sky, but, literally, the side-
walks were rolled up.
SI got over the headache, made
a mental note to make sure I had
a first aid kit the next time I visit-
ed, and we thoroughly enjoyed
the community for the next week.
Wayne (then about 13) even gave
his old Uncle Wes a pair of crepe
sole white bucks he had bout-
grown, and I wore them for sever-
al years. An accident involving
some Columbus people -at Apa- .
lachicola put a damper on our
fun, but had no adverse effect on.
our favorable impression of Port
St. Joe.
Many years have passed since
then and there have been nuiner-.
ous visits to Port St. Joe. Dean
and Joe and Wayne are stilLthere
(their dog died and so did 'ours).
The shoes finally wore oit. Our
Cindy now resides with her hus-
band on the banks. of the Hudson
River in mid-state New York. He's
a Yankee, but that's OKM He met
our girl while they were studying
at the University of the South in
the hills of Tennessee. IHe even
went to.Auburn to do post gradu-
ate work.
A long time ago Ruth, was,
Wayne's baby sitter, and now he
has two of his own.
So, we like to think that we
are kinda like "homefolks" in Port
St Joe not,absentee landlords.
Which brings me to your edi-
First, let me point out that
the folks on the front line doing
the day to day work at Gulf Cable
are the same homefolks who have
been doing that for years. Unfor-
tunately, we recently lost one "lo-
cal man", but we are looking to
replace him with another "local"
as soon as we can find someone
interested and qualified.
I am the first to admit we're
not completely satisfied with the
reception quality on some of the
off-air stations, but you seemed
to have answered your own coin-
plaint when you talked about at-
mospheric. r conditions. These
problems were there long before
we bought the system and no tel-
evision station has seen fit to
move their transmitter closer or
boost their power so that things
can improve in Port St. Joe.
We just started out third year
of operation in Port St. Joe. Since

we took over we have completed
the rebuilding of the plant, added
new electronic line gear and more
than doubled the number of
channels available on the basic
Oh yes, I know, our prices
went up. But comparatively
speaking, if we are too high now,
folks were really getting ripped
with the old rates for the pro-
gramming they had.
Eventually, more channels
will come. Don't know .when;
don't know what.
But what stops us, is the
same thing that stops everyone
else economics.
Unless I am mistaken, St. Joe
didn't experience any mega-
growth in the last decade. No
large retailers are pounding on
the door of the Chamber of Com-
merce looking for space in the
"mall" to offer their wares. You
can't get a Big Mac or a Whopper,
or something from the Colonel
without driving all the way to
Why is it Mr. Ramsey, that
Dean can get a bigger newspaper,.

on the front page, and wire sto-
ries from all over the world, a dai-
ly TV listing, comics and the lat-
est sports news, delivered from
Panama City, for the same 35
cents you charge for The Star?
Let's face it, your old press
leaves a lot to be desired when it
comes to photo reprodtiction;

Children Should
be Restrained
To the Editor:
Well I have finally figured it
all out. Your column surely isn't
syndicated, and you obviously
don't have any type of college det
gree .in journalism, so you must
own the newspaper.
I- find it hard to believe that
with all the happenings in the
world -around us you take the
time and space to write about
your personal "Apple" computer
breaking down. Are you that hard'
up for topics?
Allow me to bring something
to your attention that makes me
very angry that I see just about
'everyday ii my:"day to day" life.'
No matter where I seem to be
driving I encounter proud, yet
stupid, parents holding their little
babies or children in their laps
while driving in their vehicles.
Just the other day I saw a woman
clutching 'her tiny infant to her
chest while holding the steering
wheel. I see small children stand-
ing up in the 'front seat as their
proud parent maneuvers through
traffic. The sight of this sends
chills up my spine, and makes
myblood boill!
We subconsciously know bet-
ter, but maybe for some ignorant
reason reason, such as, "Just a.
short trip to the store", or the
child being too irritable 'to be
.placed in a restrainer seat or seat'
belt, we tend to ignore the law,
and most importantly, the bleak
consequences of an accident. So
maybe you think because you're
buckled in and you're holding
your child that the child is safe?
Think againi Think about this
fact if you had a collision going
30 mph, your 30 pound child
would suddenly weigh 300
pounds upon impact Ask your-
'self if you can control 300
pounds in a fraction of a second?
So all you: protective, proud par-
ents ask yourself if anything com-
pares to the life and safety of
your children? Prevention is sim-
ple. Life is ever so precious .
Please take the .time to buckle,
your children up!

could be improved; your paste-up
people seemed to have done some
things in a hurry each week, and
some of your writers could use a
refresher in grammar.
Come on, Mr. Ramsey, you
are in the publishing business,
specializing In bringing newspa-
pers to out-of-the-way places.
and you should be able to correct
all of this. Just get off your pock-
etbook. Your subscribers will un-
derstand. And they, along with
your advertisers, will gladly pay
the freight won't they?
But then, I guess the better
decision would be to add a dis-
claimer next to your front page
logo explaining that you "try-to-
bring-you" a newspaper.
St Joe is a great place to vis-
it, and according to our kin, a
great place to live. Dealings (both
social and business) I have had'
with Gulf county folk have gener-
ally been pleasant.
I hope it stays that way.

Wants Change
In Cable TV

To the Editor:
To myself and many other
subscribers of Gulf Cable T.V.,
your editorial in the April 24th
edition of The Star was completely
ridiculous, the article must have
been written by someone who has
never used the services of this
company or by a favored friend.
To praise their services surely
places the writer in a majority of
My household was among the
first to subscribe to the services
when it was finally offered to the
citizens of North Port St Joe. I
can truthfully say .that words
cannot express the humiliation
that I have had to bear to keep
the cable. .My service has been
disconnected on more than one
occasion for non-payment of bills
which were submitted In person,
to the office during the 4th, of
each month when I usually pay
bills. If this is good service I
wodld hate to see what is termed
as bad. -
At times we have been with-
out service for an entire day and
night but we were not credited
for this failure on our bills. I was
taught to be friendly when work-
ing with the public and if you
have ever had the pleasure to vis-
it this office; you were sure to
find that this service was not to
be found. You are treated as if
Gulf Cable is doing you a favor by
letting you use the service.
Since Mr. Linton's (our com-
missioner) name was mentioned
in the article. I would like to ex-
press the highest regard and re-,
spect for his insight into an al-
most unbearable situation. I give
thanks for one city official who
has the courage to speak out and
act upon anything that affects the
people .of this area. He is not
alone in this as the names on the
petitions will show.
Competition has' always made
for better service. The people of
this city should be able to make a
choice and if another company
comes in we will be able to use
the one that meets our needs bet-
ter. There are a number of citi-
zens, both white and black, that
want a change. So please don't'
tell us that the service is good be-
cause we are the only ones who
can attest to that fact.

Beach driving permits are an-
other source of revenue intro-
duced during the past 10 years,
to regulate driving on Gulf
County beaches, in the Indian
Pass-Cape San Blas areas. 'We
sold 747 of the permits last year,"
she said.
Disabled parking permits are
another comparatively new re-
quirement, which aren't very ex-
pensive and not many are sold,
but they serve an important pur-
pose to those who need them.
'They come in either permanent
or temporary varieties." Taylor
said. The permits are good for
four years.
Possibly the largest increase
has been in the fees involving mo-

is the increase in the number of

Gulf County Tax Collector,
Eda Ruth Taylor, spoke to the Ki-
wanis Club Tuesday, outlining
some of the changes which have
been introduced to the tax scene
since she took over the office 10
years ago.
Taylor said fees, tags, licens-
es and permits have blossomed
during the past 10 years, increas-
ing, radically, the amount of mon-
ey the office is charged with tak-
ing in from various business
I One of the most prolific of
these is the fishing license item.
Since the advent of the salt water
fishing license, fishing license
pales have soared. 'We sold better
than $90,000 worth of salt water
fishing permits in Gulf County
last year," Taylor said.

Sales taxes, of course, have
increased from four cents to six
cents on the dollar since 1981.

Guests of the club were Rev.
Oliver Scott and Key Clubbers
Matt Taylor and Bobby Nobles.

The largest increase over this
period of time, was by County
Commission levies, which rose
from $66.80 on $10,000 worth of
property, to $84.47. It was inter-
esting to note that this increase
in tax levies is almost equal to the
price tag of disposing of the
county's solid waste today, over
what it cost for the same purpose
in 1981.
Other increases saw the
schools decrease their tax levies.
In 1981, the levy was $69.85 for
$10,000 worth of taxable proper-
ty, to $67.26 in 1990, for a $2.59
The city of Port St. Joe saw
its tax levies increase from
$47.00 to $53.95 on a $10,000-

about free enterprise. Tommy
Thomas, a well known automo-
bile dealer and state political
leader from Panama City, was in-
troduced by Mr. Roberson as the
keynote speaker. Mr. Thomas
spoke to the students about the
opportunities they have in a free
enterprise system. He pointed out
that, "Each student has the op-
portunity to get a college educa-
tion, and to be successful if they
are willing to work at it." He ex-
pressed the importance of getting
an education and preparing
themselves for the business
world. He offered advice on how
to make a good first impression
and how to go about getting a job.
He related some of his own expe-
riences and how he worked his
way up the path of success.
A survey was given to the stu-
dents both before and after free
enterprise day and the results in-
dicated the students gained a
much better understanding of
our economic system.
"I feel it is important that
business be involved in our edu-
cation system," Roberson said,
"because these students repre-
sent our future employees, con-
sumers and citizens. Tamara

Test Time Turned Into Celebration

Facing an entire battery of
achievement tests can be a trying
time for both teachers and stu-
dents. And motivating students to
attend school on test days and to
do their best can make the task
even tougher.

Mrs. Arnold's Chapter I class
turned test time into a fun cele-
bration by holding a Great Brain
Festival. The students made a
large banner that read "Great
Brain Festival". The banner was
designed on a computer by the

of positive self-talk, such as, "I

Each student was given a

The ticket was punched for each

each student with perfect atten-

small treat.
On the final test day, an
award, "I Survived the Great
Brain Festival" certificate was giv-
en to each student.
On Friday, April 12, Mrs. Ar-
nold with the help of Mrs. Alice
Martin and Mrs. Stephanie Rich-
ardson, took the students on an
afternoon trip to the Bay County
Jr. Museum, a pit-stop by McDo-

Mr. Jones Sixth Grade

Sixth Graders Make, Launch Rockets

Watch outl Look in the sky!
What's that strange object?
For the last six weeks, Her-
man Jones' sixth grade class has
been learning about rockets and
their make-up, flight patterns,
etc. in preparation to the stu-
dents each building a rocket Jo-
bie Barfield of Port St. Joe High
School has guided the students
on construction and the technolo-
gy of the rockets.
These student interviews will
tell us more about the rockets.
Crystal Watson: "We learned
about the angles of flight so that
we could get the flight right for
our rockets. We had to learn
about "thirds" to be able to put
our fins on right."
Robert Harnishferger. "Mr.
Jones taught us the deployment
system about using three fins

- a -C-6:5 engine, that runs, for
six seconds, coasts for five sec-
onds and the deployment system
goes off." Robert continued: "The
C-6:5 engine is so powerful that it
blows up and the force shoots out
the deployment system which is
the nose cone, parachute and
shock cord.
Crystal added: "Mr. Barfield
taught us how to make and to
build them. He gave us directions
to colors and to just have a good
time doing it"
Robert said, "If anyone finds a
rocket or pieces, please return it
to the sixth grade "Mermaid
Room" at Highland View Elemen-
Crystal: "We can build them
again and again to launch over
and over."
Ivey Tatum who built the

launch system told how he did,it. 2
Ivey. "I got interested. in rock"
ets at school. My.dad -Ond imel
looked at magazines and got a de-
sign to go by but we made our
own design.
It is made of a block of wood
with a metal plate, metal rod,
plastic box, switches, wires,
Slights, and a six-volt battery."
How does the launcher work?
Ivey: "Turn it on, arm it (heat-
ed up), and the buzzer tells you
it's ready. Then push the launch
button. Hook the alligator clips to
the igniter on the rocket and that
launches the rocket." Ivey
laughed and said, 'Yeah, unless
the rocket messes up."
Ivey added that he has three
rockets at home and that it is a
hobby for him.

Mrs. Elkin's Third Grade Class

Third Grade Science Class Plants

One of Mrs. Elkin's -third
grade science projects for the
year has been to grow plants of
various types. They started with
sweet potatoes, avocadoes, nas-
turtiums, sweet peas, cotton, ap-
ple, orange, and maple seeds.

They ended this project on Earth
Day by planting their sweet peas
and a fruit tree (we think it is an
orange baby!)
Another project of third grade
was their study of poetry. They
wrote and compiled a book of

Trees, Veggies
poems with each poem illustrated
by a picture that described the
poem. These were bound into a
large booklet and Mr. Chip Gar-
rett, a student at FSU, shared the
book with his class. They all en-
joyed it very much.

Gulf War Veteran Talks to Kindergarten

The Kindergarten class had a
very special guest this past Fri-
Sgt. Richard "Rick" Penning-
ton, who is just back from Saudi
Arabia and Iraq, his wife Rose
and their 2 1/2 year old, Raquel,
were guests of Steven Gaddis.
Steven wrote to Sgt. Rick while he
was overseas.
Sgt. Rick described Saudi
Arabia and Iraq as sand, sand
and more sand everywhere as
well as camels, which followed

them everywhere. One of the
most unforgettable experiences
was watching a baby camel being
born. He described the people
and brought native dress for the
students to see. He stated that
the land was full of camels,
sheep, goats, lizards, scorpions,
tarantulas, carpet vipers and co-
bra snakes and how careful they
had to be of the snakes especial-
He showed the students a M-
17 gas mask, money, bullets, pic-

tures and shared information
about all.
Sgt. Rick is an air assault and
paratrooper serving on a "Sweat
Hot" assault aircraft. He will be
stationed in Ft. Campbell, Ken-
tucky, after a needed rest.
It was really a treat for Sgt.
Rick and his family to come to
share his experiences with the
students. The students at High-
land View salute Sgt. Rick and all
other men and women who
served In freeing Kuwait.

The County of Gulf is considering applying to the
'Florida Department bf C'ommunity Affirs (DCA) for a
'Small Cities Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) of up to $575,000.00. These funds must be
used for one of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate income persons;
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums
or blight; or
3. To meet other community development needs
having a particular urgency because existing con-
ditions pose a serious and immediate threat to
the health or welfare of the community and where
other financial resources are not available to
meet such needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds
may be used are in the areas of Housing, Neighborhood
Revitalization, Commercial Revitalization, and Economic
Housing may include activities such as housing reha-
bilitation, demolition of dilapidated housing, relocation of
residents, code enforcement, weatherization and ener-
gy-efficiency improvements.
Neighborhood Revitalization includes such activities
as site preparation for new housing construction, physi-
cal improvements such as water and sewer systems,
street improvements, drainage and neighborhood facili-
Commercial Revitalization includes such activities as
rehabilitation of commercial buildings, sidewalks and pe-
destrian malls, street improvements, parking facilities,
water and sewer system improvements and drainage.
Economic Development includes such activities as
loans to private-for-profit businesses, acquisition of real
property, and purchase of machinery and equipment.
Additional information regarding the range of activi-
ties that may be undertaken will be provided at the pub-
lic hearing.
For each activity that is proposed, at least 60 percent
of the funds must benefit low and moderate income per-
In developing an application for submission to DCA,
the County must plan to minimize displacement of per-
sons as a result of planned CDBG activities. In addition,
the County is required to develop a plan to assist dis-
placed persons.
The public hearing to receive citizen views concern-
ing the community's housing and community develop-
ment needs will be held in Wewahitchka City Hall on
Wednesday, May 8, 1991 at 6:00 p.m. CDT. To obtain
additional information concerning the public hearing

Congratulations to each of
you for a job well done!

There is a little more to do'
and see for visitors to the charm-
ing and historic city of Apalachi-
cola. The city's Harbor Master
Building, overlooking a fleet of
shrimp trawlers and charter
boats at the Scipio Creek com-
mercial marina, now houses the
offices and visitor center of the
St. Vincent National Wildlife Ref-
uge and boasts a dozen new dis-
plays on wildlife and wetlands.
The exhibits, given to the ref-
uge by Wilderness Graphics, Inc.
of Tallahassee through the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service Chal-
lenge Grant Program, feature the
area's outstanding natural re-
sources. The donation is valued
at close to $27,000. The Visitor
Center project was furthered
through the cooperation of the
City of Apalachicola and the
Challenge Grant Fund bringing
the total project value to $45,000.
Marvin Cook, president of
Wilderness Graphics, Inc., said,
'This gift marks 15 years of ser-
vice to the Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice at more than 120 refuges
across the nation, from the Flori-
da Keys to the Aleutian Islands."

"St. Vincent Island National
Wildlife Refuge was chosen .be-
cause of its special need to inter-
pret the island for the public.
Since it is a remote refuge, ac-
cessible only by boat, many peo-.
ple do not have an opportunity to
experience the island's special
beauty firsthand," said Cook.
Exhibits highlight the refuge's
habitats and wildlife with particu-
lar emphasis: on an Innovative
breeding program for the endan-
gered red wolf. "St. Vincent Island
is an important part of a much
larger ecosystem. We expanded
the context to present Informa-
tion on the important benefits
people derive from the Apalachi-
cola River and Bay," Cook said.
Visitor center hours are from
8;00 to 4:30 Monday through Fri-
day. For more information, corn-
tact the refuge at 904-653-8808.

Abused Children Toward Understanding
S""y Rev. Jerry Huft, Rector St. James and St. John's Churches

Have a Haven

April was "Child Abuse Pre-
vention Month".
The Gulf County Guidance
Clinic is the agency which treats
abused children in our communi-
ty. This non-profit corporation is
controlled by a board of volunteer
directors, representing a cross
section of our populace. I am
privileged to serve as a member of
that board.
The clinic is funded by pa-
tient fees, insurance policies,
State sources, and private dona-
tions. Recently State (HRS) fund-
ing has been sharply curtailed be-
cause of tax shortfalls. This
means that we have had to re-
duce the staff at the clinic. A di-
minished staff translates into re-

duced services for fewer patients.
Adults, children, and future
generations will be affected by the
fact that we cannot continue to
deliver mental health care at the
former level.
The abuse of children has a
strong emotional impact on us.
We all want to help a child recov-
er from the physical and emotion-
al trauma of abuse.
Not long ago a resource officer
at school made a "Good Touch -
Bad Touch" presentation to stu-
dents. Later some of the students
revealed painful secrets of sexual
Their experiences encom-
passed sexual approach or moles-
tation by a stranger or by a family

member. They were motivated to
disclose their secrets because of
this very effective presentation.
HRS and law enforcement of-
ficers were notified and appropri-
ate measures were carried out.
Now these young girls are receiv-
ing treatment at the clinic. Hope-
fully, their therapy will help them
overcome the negative effects of
their frightening experiences.
A compassionate, well quali-
fied, case manager skillfully
guides the children as they reflect
on their experiences. The coun-
sellor acts as a confidant and ad-
visor while the girls learn about
themselves and work through
their confused thoughts and feel-
The reduction of HRS funding

is now seriously threatening this
kind of care. Your tax deductible
donation to The Gulf County
Guidance Clinic, 311 Williams
Avenue, Port St. Joe, FL 32456.
will help protect the rights of
helpless children.
Every measure of austerity
has been taken at the clinic. No
money is being wasted, and effi-
ciency has been maximized on
every level.
The only solution to our di-
lemma is for the good citizens of
this community to take a more
active part in funding community
mental health. Let me suggest
that you make a $10.00 donation
immediately. You will be proud of
being part of the solution. Help a
child today...

Day Lilies...

Popular, Hardy, Pretty, Free from Pests

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Day lilies are among the most
popular herbaceous perennials
grown in Florida. They are hardy,
relatively free from serious pests,
have a long blooming period, and
adapt well to home landscape
plantings. Plants are available in
a wide variety of flower colors and
growth habits. The present flower
color selection available includes
shades of yellow, orange, pink,
red, purple, and near-white. My
information on day lilies was pro-
vided by Extension Horticulturist

Dr. Robert J. Black.
The adaptability of day lilies
to a variety of cultural conditions
and their availability in a wide va-
riety of flower colors and plant
sizes make them well suited for
landscape use. Keep in mind the
color of the building material
when selecting varieties. Bright
flower 'colors such as yellow
should be used against redwood,
brick, or dark backgrounds, and
dark flowers used against white
or light backgrounds. Day lilies
over 36 inches tall are suitable
for foundation plantings, the
back of day lily beds, or as mixed
borders. Medium day lilies (16 to
36 inches) can be used in most
settings. Dwarf day lilies (12 inch-
es or less) are best used or border
Light levels for day lilies are
not critical. They will grow in full
sun or filtered shade. The darker
colored varieties (red and purple)
grow best in partial shade, while
light colored varieties (yellows,

pinks, and pastels) need full sun
to bring out their lovely colors.
Heavy shade should be avoided
because it will cause thin, spindly
growth and poor flowering. The
light level under pine trees is
ideal for growing day lilies.
Soil for a day lily bed should
be tilled and amended by incorpo-
rating to three to four-inch layers
of organic matters such as peat,
corimpost, or well-rotted manure,
and two to three pounds of 6-6-6,
or an equivalent amount of other
complete fertilizers per 100
square feet of bed. The amended'
soil should be leveled, moistened
and treated with a soil sterilant to
avoid harmful organisms and kill
weed seed.
Spring is the ideal time for
planting day lilies. Space plants
eight to 24 inches apart, since
some varieties multiply quickly
and become so crowded that flow-
er production is affected. Under
Florida conditions, day Iflles can

usually grow in one location for
three to five years before division
is necessary.
Mulching day lilies will help
retain soil moisture, reduce
weeds, and moderate soil temper-
atures. A two-inch layer of pine
needles, leaves or shredded bark
are among the most desirable
Although day lilies can sur-
vive temporary dry conditions
very well, the plants' bloom size,
number of blooms, plant growth,
and overall vigor can be adversely
affected by prolonged drought. A
spectacular display of blooms can
be adversely affected by pro-
longed drought. A spectacular
display of blooms can be achieved
by applying weekly enough water
to soak the soil eight to 12 inches
