joy and exhuberance of families in Port St. Joe who had
members returning last Thursday from a tour of duty with

A Safe Holiday
Small Oil Spill at Mexico Beach
Boat Basin Only Incident Reported
With the state of Florida failing to measure up to the ex-
pectations of the Florida Highway Patrol in the number of
highway deaths over the long holiday week end, Gulf
County probably demonstrated why that estimate was not
It was a very safe and enjoyable holiday here in Gulf
County, as it usually is.
According to Captain Jack Davilla of the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department, the week end which marks the end of
summer vacation and.-holidays, was one of the more quiet-
week ends of the entire year. 'There were absolutely no
problems for the whole week end," Captain Davilla said.
DIESEL OIL SPILL
The nearest thing to a holiday disaster was a diesel fuel.
spill at Mexico Beach Saturday afternoon.
A boat, moored at the docks at Marquardt's Marina,
sprang a leak in its fuel tank, leaking diesel oil into the
boat's bilge. The automatic bilge pumps came on, after a
period of time, and pumped an estimated 60 gallons of the
fuel into the boat basin, causing a potential hazard from
fire and to the environment.
The leaking fuel oil was discovered by Tom Marquardt,
owner of the marina at about 4:00 p.m. He immediately no-
tified authorities and units from the Tyndall Air Force Base
Fire Department, the Bay County Hazardous Materials Unit
and the Mexico Beach Fire Department stayed on the scene
until well after dark, Saturday, securing the area and
standing ready to combat any problem which arose.
A containment boom was quickly placed around the
pool of diesel fuel and a blotting agent was put out to soak
up the oil before it could spread.
Mexico Beach Police Chief, Jeff Sellers said the situation
was well handled by those charged with taking care of haz-
ardous spills and there were no problems from the incident.
CITY QUIET AS A MOUSE
Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl Richter said the City of
Port St. Joe had no problems associated with the holiday
and its celebration.
"For a long holiday week end, it was about as quiet as
I've ever seen it," Richter said. 'The only excitement we had
was a cocaine bust, and it wasn't related to the holiday," he
The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission took the first step to up-
grade its building permit charges
Tuesday night, to more reflect the
actual expense involved in per-
forming the inspection duties in-
volved in the permitting process.
Recently, the Southern Stan-
dard Building Code adjusted fees
in its suggested schedule. Since
the City uses the suggested code
and since the fees have not paid
the expense of maintaining an in-
spection service, adjustment of
the fees has been inaugurated.
Mayor Frank Pate remarked
to the Commission Tuesday
night, at the first reading of the
ordinance, "It won't be necessary
for us to set our fees as high as
*the County recently set theirs, be-
cause our inspector doesn't have
such great distances to cover in
order to perform his duties."
The City's new fee schedule
will use $35.00 per square foot as
the yardstick for ascertaining the
value of a residence for permit
purposes. A commercial building'
will be figured on the basis of
$25.00 per foot, or on the actual
bid price made by a licensed con-

any construction of $2,000 valua-

Morris swept over incumbent veteran Com-
missioner Edward Bandjough, defeating him
342 to 189 for the seat in Group One. The
totals include 17 absentee ballots for Morris
and seven for Bandjough.
In Group Three, incumbent Charles Pet-
tis was swamped by challenger Tony Jus-
tice, as Justice rolled up 436 votes to only
125 for Pettis. Pettis was appointed' to his
seat in January by Governor Lawton Chiles
to fill a vacancy.
In Group Two, Tony Morgan came up the
big winner in a three man contest. Morgan
bested the combined vote of both his oppo-
nents by better than a two to one majority.
Morgan polled 404 total votes in his lop-
sided victory. Grady Dean, his nearest chal-
lenger, collected 101 votes and James E.

Guardsman Says: "Above All, It's Great to Be Back Home Again"
[The following lines are the result of an in-
terview with David Roche, of Port St. Joe, re-
cently returned from Saudi Arabia, with the
men of the 710th National Guard Unit of Apa-
lachicola. Roche's comments probably reflect
the feeling of all the returned 710th members.
In a one word description, David Roche de-
scribed the tour of duty with Desert Storm in
the Persian Gulf, as "Boring!"
As he talked further about the experiences
of he and the 710th in that far away country,
he relaxed his description to, "Boring with
. patches of interest."
"But, mainly, for those support troops like
we were, it was boring. Boring and extremely
Roche said the day the 710th took their
leave of Saudi Arabia, the temperature was
135 degrees, with summer building. The sum-
mer temperatures in the desert kingdom hov-
er around 140 degrees. That's hot!
14 FROM PORT ST. JOE
There were 65 members of the 710th acti-
vated on January 25, for duty in the Persian
Gulf. Fourteen of these men were from Port
Going with the unit from Port St. Joe, and
returning home last Thursday afternoon,
were: John Owens, Mike Todd, Calvin [Red]
Todd, Bill Deeson, Larry Hatcher, Willie
McNair, Eric McNair, Eddie Julius, James
Murray, Wade Watkins, Harry Young, Henry
Rochelle, Jr., Henry Rochelle, Jr. and Roche.
Yes, there were two 'Henry Rochelle, Jr.'s' in
Roche said the unit was joined by frag-
ments from other units at Fort Stewart, swell-
ing the contingent to about 85 men.
"The good part about it is that all these
men went over, spent their time and returned
home without a single one getting killed or
even hurt," Roche said.
"We landed at the port of Damman where
our headquarters were," Roche said. "It was a
very modern deep water port, with berthing fa-
cilities for several ships at one time."
FLAT, SANDY AND TREELESS
The 710th set up camp out on the desert
outside Damman in a land which was "flat,
sandy and no trees or bushes," Roche said.
'You could see all the way to the horizon,
probably 12 miles away and see nothing grow-
ing and very few things moving. It was about
an inch of sand over a hard rock soil which
grew only a few tufts of grass during the win-
ter time, which the nomads used to graze
their camels and goats. It was like being out
in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico in a boat,
so far as sameness of scenery and lack of
landmarks were concerned."
The order of the day was to drink two gal-
lons of water a day. The water was bottled and
shipped in. 'The Saudi's drinking water came
from a desalinization plant which converted
sea water to drinking water," the returned
guardsman said. The weather was so dry that
sweat dried immediately. If you wished, you
could wear the same clothing for a week at a
time without fear of body odor. "When we did
our laundry in a plastic bucket, it took only
about five minutes for the clothes to dry so we
could wear them again," he said.
The thing which made the tour of duty
boring was because there was no recreation in
the country. 'There were no movies, or other
means of recreation. We could go to town and
eat at one of their restaurants or watch their
TV, which carried mostly their religious pro-
grams. Other than that, recreation was strict-
ly what one could get at the base, or, if you hit
it lucky, a week end tour on a cruise ship our
government operated for the troops."
The kinds of things which made the tour
one never to be forgotten, was the sight of the
tangled mass of machinery outside Kuwait
City, or the smell of the hundreds of bodies
still rotting in the ruins. 'You had to see that
in person to get the true perspective of the
horrors of war," Roche said.
Another thing which stamped an indelible
mark in the minds of the members of the
710th was the sight of the burning Kuwaiti oil
fields. "We had to drive with our lights on at
noon in Kuwait. It was that dark from the
smoke covering the area," he said.
The good part about the tour was the un-
ashamed appreciation the Americans received
from the Saudi and Kuwaiti citizens. 'They
(See Glad to be Home Again on Page 3)
Our beaches-especially those pristine white expanses of
sand meeting the waters of the Gulf of Mexico on St. Joseph Pe-
ninsula-are under attack!
The traumatic feeling which is accompanying the attack is
because most of us don't quite understand which is the proper
side to be on. Should we support the attack, or man the defens-
Some of the people doing the attacking make it almost a cer-
tain decision that we should join the defense. Then, along comes
someone with a suggestion which makes us feel the attackers
may be partially correct this time. This comes from someone
who has lived here for 50 years and has seen that beach and
others in Gulf County, remain almost constant. There has been
erosion in the Highland View area and there has been growth at
the end of St. Joseph's Peninsula. But,. for the most part, the
beaches are about the same as they have always been.
A few years ago, the state -came along and established set-
back lines on the waterfront property. Well, nobody could argue
with that, because it was a well-known fact that storms bring
tide surge and rough water which will beat down most things
built on the water's edge. It did at Highland View, while it was
eroding away the narrow strip of land which formerly ran adja-
cent to Highway 98 on the west side.
Now, Gulf County's Comprehensive Plan is the tool the bu-
reaucrats want to use to divide us from some of our most beauti-
ful property and the areas which have the most potential for sat-
isfying recreation. They come up with convincing arguments, but
most of us have never seen the problems they tell us about.
The state's Department of Community Affairs want to limit
building on the Peninsula to a density allowed by the HRS septic
tank rules, which would be three units per acre on coastal
lands. That sounds pretty good to non coastal land owners. It
prevents the beaches from being hidden from the view of every-
one except those lucky enough to own some waterfront property.
We still have a shot at access to the beaches.
Now, comes someone we can't easily swallow-the 1,000
Friends of Florida-who want to limit coastal building on south
Bay Beaches to one unit per two acres. They say any more build-
ing would completely destroy what's there. Our preconceived
opinion of 1,000 Friends is that if we give them carte blanche
with our beaches, they will destroy us! Because of their method
of only preventing and never allowing because of a situation
which might be, they make us suspicious and resentful. If, just
once, 1,000 Friends came in trying to seek a reasonable balance
between use and preservation, we might be more prone to listen
Then comes Major Bob Douglas of the Florida Marine Patrol
with the warning that driving on the beaches of the Peninsula Is
ruining them. To his credit, he doesn't attack building homes on
the beaches for those who like to live there. He is just attacking
the practice of driving on beaches he says are too narrow for this
activity. There again, he says some beaches in the area are not
harmed by vehicle traffic. Only certain parts.
We have met Major Douglas on several occasions and have
come to trust him. We believe he knows what he is talking about
and his warnings make us pause because we feel he is issuing
them out of a cause of concern for the beaches .. not the up-
land property owners or the "might be".
The Major has said, "If it were within my power, I would close
the area from the Stump Hole to the State Park to vehicle traffic
because it is damaging the dunes, and when the dunes are gone,
the Peninsula is gone." He gives a reasonable reason; not a "be-
cause I want it closed," show of bureaucratic power.
We need to get involved in this war for the beach. It will be
necessary if we are to maintain any kind of local control, be-
cause there are some powerful forces just itching to take it away.

Daily, new countries are being born out of that former Soviet
Union of small nations ... or we should say, many old nations

We never would have thought a serious challenge would be
made against the Communists in our lifetime, from the inside.
The change has been refreshing in more ways than one. The
Russian people are getting a taste of freedom; a taste they seem
to be enjoying. The change has also brought to the forefront a
Russian leader whose name is easier to spell. Almost everyone
can spell "Boris Yeltsin". It took a while to figure out how to spell

It wasn't like that when I first
got into the country music thing.
When Little Jimmy Dickens broke
into Sleeping At the Foot of the
Bed on WSM's Grand Ole Opry on
Saturday night, why, even at the
age of three, I knew it was Little
Jimmy Dickens. No mistaking
him. And when Red Foley called
Jimmy back for his second num-
ber on the Prince Albert show,
why, I knew he was going to do
Take An Old Cold Tater And Watt
before he hit the first chord on
his big Gibson.
Country music didn't take
many chances back in those
days. They wouldn't let flank, Sr.
sing a particular song on the
Opry because it had the word
"beer" in it. Well, you know old
Hank, he sang it anyway. But
when he got down to the beer
line, he belted out, "My bucket's
got a hole in it, I can't buy no
milk." Of course, if Hank had
drank a little more milk and a lot
less of the other stuff, he might
still be with us today.

Momma Wasn't Sacrificing to Us Kids...She Was Taking the Best Piece
WENDELL CAMPBELL'S col-
umn the other week about good
old southern soul food set off an
alarm in the nether regions of
whatever it is I use to think with.
Fried chicken was one of
Wendell's favorite foods, as it is
mine, also. You can't beat a good
piece of fried chicken which has
been soaked in butter milk, rolled
in seasoned flour and fried to a
crisp golden brown. Apparently
there are a couple of other people
out there in reader-land who feel
the same way, considering all the
places which do a booming busi-
ness, featuring fried chicken as
their main cooked ingredient.
There is the Colonel, Popeye,
the Rooster, Lindy, independent
outlets galore and almost every
convenience store with a fry pot,
selling fried chicken. It has to be
one of the favorite foods of Amer-
Fried chicken is definitely on
the menu of the home of the
brave and the land of the free.
NOW, THE CHICKEN fryers
have started specializing. Have
you noticed the growing populari-
ty in chicken wings, more popu-
larly known as "buffalo wings"?
You can get this delicious de-
lectible tid-bit of sweet chicken
meat in fast food stores specializ-
ing in only the wings. They're
fried, spicy and regular, barbe-
cued, broiled, boiled, braized,
roasted and toasted.
Any way you would like to eat
a chicken wing; you can find one
to suit your taste.
The word "taste" is the key
word to chicken wings. It's there
in abundance. The breast, the
thigh, nor the drumstick can hold
a candle to the wing in taste.
My mother used to com-
mandeer all the wings from the
fried chicken fixed at our house.
Since she was the fried chicken
fixer and the one with the inside
track on getting any piece she
wanted, I always thought it
strange that she always took the
By Wesley Ramsey
Why not the breast? There's a
sizeable, meaty piece of chicken
for you. Or, why not a thigh, or a
good old trusty drumstick? Why a
wing when so many other pieces
are there, including the neck, the
back and the ever-present, tender
and juicy morsel which went over
the fence last?
THIS IS STUFF of which cu-
riosity is made. Here was a real
mystery. There had to be a rea-
son. Like I said, momma could
have had her choice from any'
piece of chicken, since she presid-
ed over the chicken fryer.
All of this happened during
the days when the kids waited
until last to eat and wolfed down
whatever was left. Momma wasn't
eating those wings just so us kids
could have a larger piece of chick-
en. Momma had a reason.
One day, I could stand the
suspense no longer, so I decided
to position myself in the kitchen
to get one of those wings before
momma could shuffle them all off
onto her plate. Those chicken
wings had developed the same
forbidden aura as many actities
That's how old I was when I
ate my first chicken wing... and
I haven't been the same since.
Whether that's good or bad, I
don't know, but it's a fact.
As I said, momma was at the
stove, cooking chicken, and lifting
the golden brown pieces out of
the pan of bubbling lard [that's
what we used in the days before
they discovered cholesterol] and
placed the piping hot pieces on a
piece of paper sack to drain the

OUT IN THE barn, I stopped
and sank down into the cow's
feeding trough to savor my treas-
ure of a just-cooked fried chicken
wing. This had to be a great day.
It had to be a day of experiencing
adventure. Not only had I never
sneaked a piece of Just-fried
chicken while momma had her
back turned, but I had never had

contest and no argument, they
are the best and one of the most
maligned pieces of the chicken!
Adventure enters into this sit-
uation. Just as I couldn't stand
to go on day after day not know-

College for Kids
If you are a parent of teenage children as I am, then you are
aware that kids are much smarter today than we were when we
were children. The advent of television and the computer age has
given kids a jump on knowledge and information that was not
available to us.
And I think it's wonderful that kids are confronted with such
complicated technology at an early age. Being confronted with
computer equipment at an early age enables them to adapt and
grow with advances that occur almost daily in our fast moving,
There is, however, a disadvantage that the children of today
suffer from because of this fast moving life we live. Kids today, I
-think, are lacking in some of the fundamental basics of life. For
.example, a teenager may be a whiz on a computer, but not know
what a coat hanger is used for. Those of you who have kids know
what I nean.
Because kids of today are so smart and able to grasp things
with little effort, I therefore propose a college for kids, starting at
age two and ending at age 25. It would be called the College of
Basic Life and their degree would be presented only if they pass
all the courses, which would consist of the fundamentals of liv-
ing. Below are the courses they would be required to take and
the age they would be when they take them.
BEGINNING HEALTH 101 age 2 thru 6
During this course they would learn to change their own dia-
pers, eat meals without destroying the dining room, clean their
own nose and ears and change their beds in the middle of the
* night when necessary. They would also be required to prepare
their own formulas and ween themselves before passing the
course. No thumb suckers would be allowed to graduate until
they had dirty thumbs for at least two weeks.
BEGINNING LIFE 202 age 7 thru 16
The main goal of this phase of college for kids would be
teaching them to,develop skills in food preparation, washing and
ironing clothes, cleaning house (their room would suffice), getting
up and to school on time, learning to walk to places (a lost art
with kids today), and other basic rules of responsibility. Anyone
caught throwing clothes, clean or dirty, on the floor would be
Penalized one year. Not taking a bath for a week or longer would
carry a six month penalty.
PRE-ADULT LIFE 303 age 17 thru 25
The object of this phase would be to teach the students that
one day they will all be orphans; that momma and daddy will not
always be around to bail them out if they get in trouble, like writ-.
ing bad checks, overcharging on credit cards sent to them by
stupid credit card companies without their parents' approval -
or getting tickets for reckless driving or D.U.I. During this phase
of college, they would learn that money does not, I repeat, DOES
NOT grow on trees or come from a magic money clip. They would
also learn that although fancy clothes, flashy cars, gasoline and
car repairs are paid for'with a check or credit card, there must be
money to pay for them when they reach the bank.
-Fatal errors during this course would be not being able to
;change their own diapers, still being a "thumb sucker" and still
not being able to explain what soap and water is used for.
Those who fail PAL-303 would be required to serve five (5)
years in the Marines as latrine orderlies.
Maybe the College for Kids can do it; we parents can't seem

At a special meeting of the

In response to proposed rules
for significant reduction in the

the OFF contracted a team of
fishery biologists and economists
to conduct an independent review
of the science behind the FMFC's
proposed restrictions. Results of

ducted by Dr. Brian Rothschild of
the Chesapeake Biological Sta-
tion, Solomons, Maryland, a
world renowned fisheries biolo-
gist, and colleague Dr. Jerry Ault,

stocks are already above these

FMFC's newestclosures. The ex-

at that time, the major stocks will

SETTING THE FACTS STRAIGHT'
It is not a "fact of life" that
several or all of the permanent
teeth have to be lost as we
grow older. Except for accidents
or malformations, teeth are lost
as a consequence of decay or
periodontal (gum and bone) dis-
ease conditions which can be
prevented or arrested by timely
and proper care. The primary
cause of loss of teeth is ne-
A toothache that "goes away
by itself" does not mean that
the tooth has recovered from
whatever affected it. Pain is a
warning signal that something is
wrong and that no time should
be lost in consulting a dentist.
Fillings do no weaken teeth!
The truth is that unfilled cavities
weaken teeth, and if neglected
lead to loss of a tooth which
timely filling could have com-
Drinking lots of milk does
not prevent tooth decay. Milk is
the richest dietary source of cal-
cium, needed for teeth and
bone-building, and an excellent
food. But milk cannot arrest the
process of tooth decay or pre-
vent its inception.

Dog Fly Spraying to Begin
The Entomology program of the Florida Department
of Health and Rehabilitative Services, in cooperation
with the Mosquito Control Programs, will again this
summer and fall operate an aerial spray program for the
control of dog flies on the Gulf Beaches in Northwest
Florida. The aircraft being used in this program will be
flown parallel to and a short distance behind the beaches
from Indian Pass westward.
All aircraft are property maintained, licensed and'
operated in compliance with the rules and regulations
governing their operation. All spraying is done in
accordance with the federal labels designed to protect
the health of the people.
Northerly winds carry dog flies to the Gulf beaches
from their breeding sites, primarily agricultural areas
near the state line and above and occasionally from piles
of seaweed washed up on the bay shores. These flies can
travel long -distances, one tagged individual was
recovered 150 miles from the site it was marked. Dog
flies become concentrated on the beaches, because the
water acts as a barrier to their migration. Thus making.
the'beaches nearly impossible to use. While the winds
remains from a northerly direction, the flies may build
in numbers each day if not controlled. They often
become so numerous that .someone standing on the
beach may have in excess of 100 flies trying to draw
blood. When the wind holding the flies on the beaches
shifts, the flies quickly disperse inland and plague the
residents and their pets within a few miles of the coast.
In order to achieve the greatest effectiveness and to be
economically feasible the flies are treated while
concentrated. along the beaches.
This is a safe program which offers effective control
of this important pest in the Northwest Florida area.
Questions regarding the program should be addressed to
Dog Fly Control, 3920 N. Frankford. Ave., Panama City,

the new growth that's about 12
inches long, leaving at least four
leaves on each shoot. But, as
we've said dno further cutting
after the 10th of this month.
Finally, don't relax your
guard against lawn and ornamen-
tal pests. It's still hot enough for
insects; like scales, whiteflies,
mites, aphids, and caterpillars, to
cause serious ornamental dam-
age. And, sod webworms and fall
armyworms could still injure your
lawn. Also, the disease brown

During September and Octo-
ber, a substance called gibberellic
acid is often used on camellias.
When properly applied, gibberellic
acid increases flower size, and
produces blooms much sooner
than would be possible without
the treatment. Encouraging early
flowering of camellias is a good
idea, because it minimizes the
danger of freeze damage, and
helps insure an abundance of
* If you're interested in trying
gibberellic acid on your camellias,
here's how. First, select a well-
developed flower bud. Remove the
growth bud that you'll find grow-
ting next to the flower bud. When
,you've done this, you'll notice a
small cup-like place where the
growth bud came off. Fill this cup
with one drop of the acid solu-
tion. Usually, you'll notice a dif-
ference in bud size, between
treated and untreated camellias,
in about a week.
S September is the last time
you should prune poinsettias. As
we've pointed out previously,
'poinsettias should be pruned reg-
ularly during spring and summer
growth, to develop more compact
plants with an abundance of
showy bracts. But, you should
not prune after September 10th,
because you'll reduce flowering
by removing buds that begin de-
yeloping-about that time. If you'd
like to prune your poinsettias

Help Your Child to Achieve in School
By Joe Mizereck
Ask the next kid you see on
the street how long it will be be-
fore summer is over and he or
she will probably break it down to
the minute. Each fall, teachers
open their doors to hundreds of
classrooms and welcome thou-
sands of students back to the ed-
ucational process that will strive
to prepare them for the future.
Next to the students them-
selves, parents and teachers have
the most vital roles in this pro-
cess. Sadly, little attention is giv-
en to helping parents become bet-
ter informed on the roles they can
perform in helping their children
achieve success in school.
Here are some ideas for par-
*Have a strategy-planning
session with your child. Help
your child identify realistic goals,
set priorities and write down how
the goals will be met.
-Arrange a study area for
your child. This will be the work-
place. Be sure there is a lamp,
writing area and dictionary within
*Ask your child to show you
the course outlines for all classes.
These are prepared by teachers
and provide the purpose of the
course, learning objectives, grad-
ing scale and other important cri-
teria. It is important that parents
and children understand the
course outline and criteria. If you
child does not receive outlines,
request them from the teachers
and call for clarification if neces-
*Monitor your child's study
habits. Help the child stick to a
plan. If homework is planned
from 3 p.m. 4:30 p.m., see that
the homework is done then. After
a few weeks, the habit will be de-
veloped and your help will not be
as necessary. Don't give your
child opportunities to develop
non-productive study habits. Be
*Monitor the homework load.
If your child says the teacher
doesn't given any homework or
seems to be spending an exces-
sive amount of time on home-
work, find out why.
*Make certain your child's
class materials are organized. Or-
ganization is a key to academic
*Know when your child will
have a test, essay, project or oth-
er important activity. Help your
child. study for a test. Read the
essay and share your views. As-
sist and support, but never do

communicate negative comments,
expect to be ignored.
*Encourage your child, but

important. A hungry mind has
*Turn the evening meal into
an opportunity to discover what
your child learned and did at
school. Don't just listen; discuss.
Make this the time of day your
child looks forward to because
you will listen and make him or
her feel good.

meet the teachers and adminis-
trators. During parent's night, lis-
ten closely to the principal. The
principal sets the tone for the

will get even worse when your re-
action to poor grades is to be-
come emotionally upset.
Students at all grade levels
benefit when the parents are ac-
tive, caring participants in the ed-
ucational process. By encourag-
ing diligent study and
discouraging an "I'll just get by"
attitude, parents can make a sig-
nificant contribution to their chil-
dren's education. According to
Stanford University professor M.
Dornbusch, the most positive
kind of parents are the "authori-
tarian" parents who expect ma-
ture behavior from the child, set
and enforce clear standards, en-
courage the child's independence
and individuality, recognize rights
of parents and children and de-
velop open communication.
When teachers, parents and
communities work together and
are child-centered, our work
well. When our schools work well,
we all benefit. Let us focus atten-
tion this year on helping our
schools to work well and our chil-
dren to achieve success. This is
in their best interests and in
ours. Above all, it is the right
thing to do.
