Tyndall Federal Credit Union joined a
growing community of financial institu-
tions on Fifth Street the middle of last
week, as they moved into their new build-
ing, which was just recently completed.
Tyndall Federal has been in operation
for six and a half years, since it merged
with the Telan Credit Union, made up of
employees from the Apalachicola North-
ern Railroad and the St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company. The finan-
cial institution has since added other
membership groups to its organization.
The new building contains some 2,500
Director Says First
Launch Due Before
End of Year
Florida's Spaceport Authority
announced this week that delay
in initiating activity at the Cape
San Blas launch site has been
caused by delays in approval of
permits needed for the facility.
Scheduled to make its first
launch in late September or early
October, the site is still waiting
for that first launch crew to ar-
According to Edward A.
O'Connor, Jr., Executive Director
for the Spaceport Florida Authori-

Base for activation of the Cape
San Bias launch site. '"We still an-
ticipate approval within the
fourth quarter of 1991, and are
targeting November for our first
launch," O'Connor said.
O'Connor said Eglin had

square feet of space, plus three drive-
through windows, and a drive-through Au-
tomatic Teller Machine.
Christine Cain, local manager of the
Credit Union operation said a formal
grand opening celebration will be held for
the new building in the near future. "A
definite date has not been set yet," she
The company operated for six years on
Reid Avenue and had six employees in the
former headquarters. "We have eight em-
ployees and three temporary people at
the present time," Mrs. Cain said.
Jay Burtoch, a consultant
with David M. Griffith Associates
told the Gulf County Commission
Tuesday night, it would cost the
county a maximum of $8,500 to
have the firm make a study of
Gulf County's solid waste pro-
gram and suggest several alterna-
tives to funding the expensive op-
Burtoch, making the presen-
tation at the Commission's invita-
tion, said his firm had made
many of these same type studies,
as many counties are faced with
an expensive solution to demands
by the Environmental Protection
Agency and Florida's Department
of Environmental Regulation for
changes in handling solid waste.
Burtoch said, "I've already
learned that you are spending
$800,000 of your ad valorem tax-
es this year to deal with the prob-

Burtoch's presentation was
instigated by Commission- Chair-
man, Billy Traylor, who is dis-
turbed that the ad valorem tax
payers in Gulf County are paying
for solid waste disposal for the
entire county. 'This is wrong,"
Traylor has said.
Taxing officials estimate that
only some 30% of the homes in
Gulf County are paying ad valo-
rem taxes. The remainder are to-

First Accident On New W.C. Bridge
Cecil Lyons -and Mrs. Jack -
Hall, both of Port St Joe, had the
dubious honor of being involved
in the first automobile accident
on the new high rise bridge at
White City Sunday evening.
According to investigating of-
ficers, a trailer being towed be-
hind a vehicle driven by Lyons,
came loose as it came upon the
bridge, swerving into the path of

stalled until a period of time after
the preliminary coats of paving
cure and settle. As a result, the
approaches to the bridge are
slightly rough, where the paving
meets the concrete span.

the time of the crash and caused

The accident is still under in-
stead Exemption law.
SUGGESTS SPECIAL FEE
Burtoch said many counties
are making special assessments
against all properties in the
county for solid waste disposal
purposes. "Of course, that is up
to you. The method of collecting
any assessment is up to you.
What we would do for you is ac-
curately assess the situation and
offer several alternatives which
might be acceptable in order to
solve the problem. What you ulti-
mately choose to do is up to you,"
the consultant said.
Without exception, the
County Commissioners seemed to
agree that steps must be taken
soon to shift the expense of dis-
posing of solid waste to a wider
base of financial responsibility,
rather than leave it on the shoul-
ders of ad valorem tax payers.
Commissioner Al Ray asked
the Board to think about hiring a
consultant and just what they
would be looking for before mak-
ing the decision. "I would like to
see us table this matter for a day
or two to allow us to think about
it," Ray said. The other Board
members agreed with him and
the Commission decided to meet
in special session this afternoon
to discuss the matter further.
In a related item, projects di-
rector, Ralph Rish advised the
Commission that a recycle shed
is nearing completion at the com-
pactor site on Industrial Road,
near Port St Joe.
'This building will allow us to
collect and hold for a market, ma-
terials such as glass, aluminum
and plastic. It will also allow us to
store and bale waste paper. We
don't have a market for waste
paper, but we can give it away.
Giving it away will save us $23.00
per ton, since we now have to pay
that amount to have it burned in
Bay County's incinerator. and
we have to pay to haul it over
The county-and all other
counties in Florida-is under
mandate to reduce by 30% its to-
tal solid waste stream in two
years. It must also reduce by 50%
its volume of glass, plastic and
paper. "Studies have shown that
70% of our solid waste volume is
paper. If we can handle that one,
we'll be in good shape," Rish said.

With the resignation of Rish
effective on the last day of Octo-
ber, the Commission considered
five applicants for the position

sion to offer the post to William

A Safer Halloween Alternative to Kids
Port St. Joe's Retail Merchants and
Elementary School PTA are joining forces
this year to provide young children of the
community with a safer alternative to the
annual Trick or Treat observance at Hal-
The PTA has provided a Hallowe'en
carnival for many years, providing an out-
let for the kids to dress up in costumes
and join in the scary activities which ac-
companies the annual fall holiday.
Children have also had a habit of tour-
ing the city-usually accompanied by par-
ents to friends and relatives homes-to
Trick or Treat for candy goodies.
Growing dangers throughout the na-
tion for the young goblins on their scary
rounds on Hallowe'en night have prompt-
ed the Port St. Joe Elementary School PTA
to seek the alternative, allowing the young
kids their night out, having fun, in a safer
The result of the planning sessions
was the birth of an idea to construct a
haunted house and game area in a central
section of the City, where the children can
celebrate and still be under the watchful
care of adults.
The Merchants Association has joined
in the plans and has provided funds for
materials to construct the haunted house
and provide a Trick or Treat activity in
downtown Port St. Joe.
The goblin activity will take place
Thursday night, October 31-Hallowe'en
night-with most activities centered at the
corner of Reid Avenue and Fifth Street, on
the vacant comer beside the City Hall.
The haunted house will be located in
the Fire Station building, to the rear of the
City Hall, and joined to the game location
with a scary entrance tunnel. Children will
be provided free admission to the entire
scope of activities, but access to the
haunted house will be limited as to how
many may visit it at one time.
All the work is being done by the Ele-
mentary School PTA.
A costume parade will begin the activi-
ties, Thursday evening, at 6:00 p.m., on
Reid Avenue. The street will be closed to
automobile traffic between Fifth and First
Streets. The young ghouls and goblins will
parade up the street in their Hallowe'en
costumes and then Trick or Treat on Reid
Avenue all the way back to the festival
grounds. Port St. Joe merchants will be of-
fering treats to escape tricks in front of
business establishments on the street,
with merchants from all over the City par-
Employees of various business estab-
lishments throughout the City will be
dressed in costumes, highlighting the Hal-
lowe'en season, as they participate in the
Trick or Treat activity. The parade route
on Reid Avenue will also be decorated in a
Hallowe'en motif, to add to the atmosphere
of the event.
The entire activity will begin at 6:00
p.m., and come to a close around 8:00

Whether you approved of or were appalled by the hefty
$98,000 fine the Environmental Protection Agency slapped on
the small city of Wewahitchka, you, nevertheless, see how heavy
handed the non-elected government agencies can be-especially
with someone who cannot help themselves.
To be fair, Wewahitchka could have helped itself in years
past. We know from experience that EPA doesn't just show up
one day, carrying an order for a $98,000 fine and tell you it
must be paid.
In the past, EPA has been stem, but reasonable. If they
wrote you a letter, threatening or not, the community involved
could usually protect itself by merely dashing off an answer to
the particular office which sent the letter. All anybody had to say
in the letter was, 'Your letter of such and such a date received.
We have noted your criticisms and our organization is working
on that matter and will get back to you ." putting down a date
which is a reasonable or comfortable amount of time in the fu-
All EPA mainly wants to know is that you realize they are un-
happy with your situation and that you are half-way agreeable
to discussing the situation, or making suggested changes.
EPA did not care about having their letters, advice, orders, or
reports ignored. They have always been picky about that. We
agree they have always wanted too much; especially from a
small community with a limited amount of financial resources.
But, don't just ignore them
We understand that Wewahitchka doesn't have $98,000 lying
around, just waiting for EPA to come along and claim it. They
probably don't have the money to do the things EPA wants done
to their sewage treatment plant. We also know by experience
that they never tire of thinking up new innovations one can
make to his treatment plant. But they have proven themselves
lenient, so far as performance goes.
If Wewahitchka has to actually pay this fine, they can blame
lack of response to a deadly serious communication from an
agency which is not given to much humor in these matters. If
they do not have to pay it, due to finally answering queries from
EPA, they can thank their lucky stars and the good nature of
EPA officials, because they are solicitous of the protection of
such rivers as the Chipola. We all are, and we should be trying
just as hard as EPA to protect it, with or without their help or
Take A Good Look
Should the City of Port St. Joe get into the cable TV busi-
ness? That's a question you are being called on to answer. As a
matter of fact, the City wants to know by Friday how you feel
about this question.
Our first reaction to the question is; No, the City of Port St.
Joe doesn't need to get into the cable TV business or any other
business, normally handled by private enterprise.
We prderstand we have a situation here in which many feel
That the local cable TV outlet has not or is not performing in a
"satisfactory manner. Some have problems with the company,
while some do not. We happen to be one of the lucky ones who
has no particular problems with Gulf Cable TV. Our picture is
reasonably good, we have had no complaints with the service,
and we receive more stations now than, we ever watch. Actually,
you could say we are a reasonably satisfied customer, except for
the reception of CBS TV. This could stand some attention.
But, back to the City getting into the business. We feel the
City should stay out of the business, but there are exceptions. If
Gulf Cable TV comes up to our expectations, we have no prob-
lem in remaining with them. If they refuse, the City really has no
We feel the owner of Gulf Cable TV is a reasonable man who
wants to do what is expected of his company, although, like
most businessmen, he isn't interested in giving away all his prof-
its. We don't expect him to.
The only problem we have ever had with Gulf Cable TV, un-
der present or previous owners, has been with the district man-
ager of the present ownership. As you know, he wrote us some
nasty letters for no apparent reason. He had received some com-
plaints, and we didn't generate or originate them. However, this
particular man seemed to hold us responsible.
Personally, we don't think the City should get into the busi-
ness, but we wouldn't start a campaign to keep them from it, if
the present firm insists on being unresponsive to its complaints,
real or imaginary.

Braves Are Making New Legends In World Series Games
IN LAST WEEK'S column,
Kesley Colbert was commiserat-
ing over the fact that they don't
make baseball players like they
use to any more. His standard of
a quality baseball player was
Stan Musial. Musial stood head
and shoulders above even the
baseball players of his day. There
weren't many more of his kind
around, even then.
Then last Thursday, after
lunch, I was driving back to the
office and had my car radio tuned
to the Gulf Coast College station,
WKGC, and I heard the legendary
baseball announcer, Red Barber,
being interviewed in a program
The program was on Public
Broadcasting because of the
World Series coming up. Barber
sort of verified Kesley's claim
that, 'They don't Make Them Like
They Use To," saying the reason
was that the ones they were mak-
ing like they use to are now
spread about over more baseball
teams than was the case in I
40's and 50's and prior.
We've seen two men co:

Hunter did takes a pretty fair

After the job Steve Avery and

Some Things I Remember
Let the record show that I stole the idea of this article, as I do
many of my ideas, from another writer, Andy Rooney.
A few things I remember from childhood until now are........
*The smell of food being cooked on a wood-burning stove. If
you've never eaten a country meal cooked on a wood-burning
stove, you've missed a treat.
*Chopping wood for the stove and fireplace and splitting
splinters to get the fire started in the morning. I would rather
chop wood than split splinters.
*Wetting the bed rather than go to the bathroom on real cold
nights. It was a warm feeling...for a little while.
*Long, hot summer days working in the fields, plowing and
hoeing. The days seemed to last forever!
*Walking to the creek to swim for a couple of hours during
mid-day, and then back to the fields that afternoon.
*Catching a bus to town, going to a double-feature movie,
eating popcorn, candy bar and coke, and returning home on the
.bus. I did all of this on less than $1.00. Unbelievable!
*Slipping around smoking cigarettes made from Daddy's
*Getting caught smoking Daddy's Prince Albert and getting a
*My first drink of whiskey from a bottle Daddy had in the ice
box for egg nog. How could it burn and taste so bad when it
smelled so good?
*Riding on the back of our truck to Grandma's house and let-
ting our feet hang off the tailgate. Grandma lived in the country-
country and top speed was about 35 mph.
*Spending the summer at Grandma's house and working in
the peanut fields. That dirt was as hot as a two-dollar dueling
pistol, and so were the nights.
*Sitting on the front porch and listening to grown-ups talk.
*The smell of kerosene burning lamps at night because there
was no electricity.
*Listening to the Grand Ole Opry on Grandma's battery oper-
*My brothers and sisters leaving home, one by one, until
there were only my younger sister and I. And then I left. It broke
my Daddy's heart. There was no one left to milk the cows, feed
the hogs and horse, and chop the wood.
*The day Daddy died and, later, the day Momma died. I was a
grown man but I've never felt as alone as I did when Momma
*Going off to school and thinking I would never come back to
that farm called home, and now wishing I could go back.
Those are but a few of the things I remember as a child. Andy
Robney is not one of my favorite writers, but I did enjoy his arti-
cle about growing up in the North.
Thanks, Mr. Rooney, whoever you arel

McGee of Cape San Bias.
The Board had received 21
applications for the post, with the
field being narrowed down to the
final five after interviews were
conducted. Making the final five
cut were McGee, Larry Witt,
Wayne Goodson and Bo Williams
of Gulf County and Ken Patton of
Commissioner Nathan Peters
made a motion that Patton be
hired, with McGee as a second
choice. He couldn't get any sup-
port for his motion, so Commis-
sioner Al Ray made a motion to"i
employ Witt. On polling the
Board, Ray and Charles Fortner
voted in favor of Witt and chair-,.
man Traylor broke a 2-2 tie on
the vote, after studying the mat-
ter for several minutes before re-
jecting the motion.
Peters, Ray and Creamer fi-
nally came to an agreement to
employ McGee, with Witt as sec-
ond choice, should the Commis-
sion not be able to reach agree-
ment with McGee on salary and/
or working conditions.
In other matters of business,
-Rejected a suggestion to
ask Florida's DOT to name the

have input to the suggestion.
-Received approval from the
State of Florida, to extend the
deadline for getting started with
construction of the White City
water system until June 1, 1992.
A state grant for construction of
the system was to go back to the

The 1991 Red Ribbon Cam-
paign theme is "Neighbors Drug
Free & Proud." According to Flori-
da Informed Parents, the state-
wide coordinator of Florida's Red
Ribbon Campaign, the focus of
this campaign is the message be-
hind the Red Ribbon. Red Ribbon
is more than a week-long celebra-
tion of a commitment to a drug-
free Florida because drug preven-
tion services operate 365 days a
year. There are parent and com-
munity groups statewide that
provide education, support and
alternatives for parents and
youth year round. The intent of
the red ribbon is to create an
awareness of the problem and to
aid in mobilizing communities
against drugs. Florida's Red Rib-
bon Campaign is sponsored by
Florida Informed Parents for Drug
Free Youth, Inc., a statewide,
non-profit organization dedicated
to providing substance abuse pre-

The St. Joseph Bay Chapter,
Daughters of the American Revo-
lution, met Wednesday, October
16, at the St Joseph Garden
Center with Regent, Mrs. Archie
Mrs. Paul Fensom, charter
member of the organization, pre-
sented a very informative pro-
gram on the discovery of the New
World by Christopher Columbus.
The following are some ex-
cerpts from her program:
The 500th anniversary of the
discovery of the New World by
Christopher Columbus is ap-
proaching fast. On October 12,
1992, the United States of Ameri-
ca will celebrate the very first
Quincentenary of anything en-
countering the so-called Old
World .with this part of the planet
on which we live.
In 1492, the general outlook
about the future was gloomy and
cynical. The Crusades to recover
Jerusalem for the Christians had
been a failure. Christianity,
which was the Catholic Church
headed by the Pope, was in disar-
ray. Its secular counterpart, the
holy Roman Empire, is pictured
as being in a state of degeneracy
and decay. News of the discovery
by Columbus, who by the way,
never realized he had found a
New World. gave Europe a second
Isn't it possible to compare
these times in 1991 with conflict
in our churches, our nation en-
cumbered by debt and crime, the
changes in Russia, continuing op-
pression in China, search for ar-
gument, and peace in the Middle
East and South Africa with those
500 years ago? Could exploration
in space bring changes as
astounding as the discovery of
Admiral of the Ocean Sea!
This title with other honors and
privileges was given Columbus by
King Ferdinand and Queen Isa-
bella of Spain on his return from
the first voyage to the New World,
and this is the title of the Colum-
bus biography written by Samuel
E. Morrison who in 1939-40 led
the Harvard Expedition tracing all
four of the discover's voyages.
This was in anticipation of the
450th Anniversary downplayed
because of World War II.
From this'book, from articles
in the Smithsonian, and U.S.
News and World Report maga-
zine, the Encyclopedia Brittanica,
plus other various newspaper
clips comes Mrs. Fensom's infor-
mation for her program.
Columbus' discovery made
Spain the wealthiest and most
powerful country in Europe. The
whole history of the New World
stems from his four voyages.
As October 12, 1992 ap-
proaches, there will be much
written about this brave and de-
termined man. Though he died
out of favor with his king, though
there will be claims that others
found the New World before him,
though his mistakes will be mag-
nified and accomplishments
downplayed, nothing can take
away the honor that is his as long
as recorded history lasts. No fic-
tion can equal the story of his
Mrs. Fensom also displayed
many articles, books and maps
on Columbus for all to peruse.
Hostesses were Mesdames
Paul Kunel, R.E. Bosso, Roberta
Harden, and Charles Clardy.

Tigers Defeat Sharks, 19-7
Adam Faurot stayed in the air so
many times Friday night, it ap-
peared as if he were taking ad-
vantage of frequent flyer points,
as he dive bombed the Sharks
with 18 of 28 pass attempts. The
Tigers took advantage of a re-
building year for the Sharks, to
dump the home team, 19-7 for
their first win in three years
against the Port St Joe 11.
The Sharks weren't about to
hand the Tigers the game on a sil-
ver platter, and gave the Tigers
troubles, not allowing them any
breathing room until four min-
utes into the final period, when
the Tigers put their third TD on
The Tigers' Achilles heel was
the fact that they couldn't buy an
extra point kick. The Sharks
Achilles heel was that they com-
mitted mistakes which allowed
the Tigers to put up points.
With four minutes still re-
maining in the first period, a
Shark fumble on the Shark six
had Greg Snowden recovering for
his Tigers. On two short runs, Mi-
chael Engram scored. John Reed
then kicked the only Tiger extra
point of the evening, and even it

Maxwell connected with Cal-
vin Pryor on a fly pattern pass up
the middle and Pryor ran for 33
yards before he was brought
down. Then Sarabia Tiller bulled
for seven yards on two plunges,
and Pryor ripped off another 11
yard gainer which had the Sharks
knocking on the door. Pryor put
the final touch on the drive, slip-
ping around left end for a two
yard TD run. David Liffick kicked
the extra point and that was all
the Sharks were to get for the

Jeremy Tull pounced on a Ti-
ger fumble on the Blountstown

quarter. The Tigers had taken
over from their own four yard line
after a 35 yard Eric Ramsey punt
and in three plays were on their
own 23, jockeying for position to
turn loose their attack. The inter-
ception did nothing more than
provide a short pause for the Ti-
gers, however, as they Intercepted

play, at the Tiger 10.
Sarabia Tiller brought Shark
fans to their feet, as he hauled in

PAUL REVERE THE DENTIST
How about a little dental triv-
ia? History records Paul Revere
as the man who made the impor-
tant ride on the night of April 18,
1775, as well as being a skilled
silversmith. But the history
books never mention the fact
that Paul Revere was a practic-
ing dentist. A student of John
Baker, the first English dentist
to come to America, Paul not
only carved false teeth from ivo-
ry but concocted a dentifrice
that contained abrasive sub-
stances and various mixtures
such as cuttlebone, brown sugar
candy, saltpeter and gunpowder,
butter and bread crumbs. We
don't know if it sold too well.
How far back does the use
of nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
go in the annals of dentistry? In
1884, Dr. Horace Wells, an
American dentist, demonstrated
the properties of nitrous oxide
by using it on himself while hav-
ing his own teeth extracted.
How much dental care is
needed today? It has been esti-
mated that if every dentist spent
24 hours a day, every day of the
year, just filling cavities, there
would still be one billion cavities
left unfilled in the United States.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Some of the sites are for small

Those Who Use, Sho
County Commission Chair-
man, Billy Traylor told the Rotary
Club last Thursday that Gulf
County is also going to have to
adopt a schedule of user fees,
just like the State of Florida, in
order to keep taxes from continu-
ously going up and up.
'"We have to do something to
relieve the growing burden on the
ad valorem tax payer," Traylor
said. "What we're doing here in
Gulf County-and you can blame
your County Commission for in-
creasing taxes-is unfair to the
ad valorem tax payer. We expect
him to pay for services all of us
receive and that isn't fair. A per-
son should pay for what he gets,"
As an example, Traylor
turned to the solid waste disposal
program currently in effect here
in the County. "Less than 10
years ago, solid waste disposal
cost the county something like
$10,000 to $20,000 a year. This
year, ad valorem tax payers in the
county are paying $800,000 to
dispose of everyone's solid waste,
and that isn't right."
"Every person generates gar-
bage and every person should
share in the cost of properly dis-
posing of it," the speaker said.
The chairman said he would
probably be a one-term County
Commissioner, but he was adopt-
ing a position of, if you use it, you
pay for it. in Gulf County financ-
es. He declared it is the only way
to finance county services and
not present a hardship on any
one individual. "I know people
have had their solid waste cared
for all these years at no cost to
them, but those days are gone."
Traylor said the county is be-
ing visited by a consulting firm
this week, in order to get some
guidelines on which way to go to
solve the financial woes involved
with solid waste handling.
The chairman also said the

same treatment was going to be

sewer districts operated by the
county in unincorporated areas.
"Some of these systems have
been inadequately funded due to
a rate schedule which wasn't suf-
ficient for the systems to operate
as they should. We're going to
correct this situation. These busi-
nesses are going to be operated in

Traylor expressed himself as

Due A Face-Lift
A building which was once a landmark in
downtown Port St. Joe, has since become a
sizeable eye sore and a concern for those who
had property on Reid Avenue.
The old building, soundly built during the
middle 40's, had also become a point of consid-
erable concern for many who are interested in
the future and the appearance of the down-
town area of the City.
The building known as the Hobbs Hotel
building, has been vacant for several years and
has suffered from the ravages of the weather
and neglect. The roof is falling in in spots,
floors and timbers are suffering from rot from
the leaking roof and the outside has taken on
an unkempt appearance.
A trio of Port St. Joe men hope to turn that
deterioration around and once again, make the
old two-story building at the corner of First
Street and Reid Avenue, a respectable part of
the downtown district. George Duren, Billy
Carr and Robert Costin have pooled their re-
sources and purchased the old building, which
has been on the market for a number of years,
with the intention of developing it into a viable
part of the business community of the City.
Duren says the three have no concrete
plans for the future of the building at the
present time. "We feel it can be utilized as a
profitable real estate venture and we're com-
mitted to changing the old building from a lia-
bility to a definite asset for the downtown area.
We're looking for someone who needs a sturdy-
built building, with 13,000 square feet and we
feel confident we'll find such a person or organ-
In addition the property has facilities for 50
cars of off-street parking.
In the meantime, Duren said the new own-
ers plan to start cleaning up the building,
,painting, etc., in order to make It more eye ap-
pealing at the present time. "We feel we're do-
ing the right thing, putting local money into a
local building, striving for local improvements."

ARE YOU KEEPING RIGHT?
The world's shortest sermon is seen on thou-
sands of traffic signs "KEEP RIGHT." Are you
keeping right? The Word of God commands us to:
(1) LIVE THE RIGHT LIFE.
This means a life separated from unclean
things (2 Corinthians 6:17) It means living soberly,
righteously, and godly in this present world (Titus
2:12). We begin a new life, by being born again
(John 3:1-5; Mark 16:15-16).
(2) SPEAK THE RIGHT WORDS.
Ephesians 4:29 says, "Let no corrupt communi-
cation proceed out of your mouth..." Filthy words
mean a filthy should and bankrupt vocabulary.
(3) THINK THE RIGHT THOUGHTS.
Proverbs 23:7 says, "for as he thinketh in his
heart, so is he..." Philippians 4:8 tells that, "What-
soever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of
good report; fi there be any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these things."
(4) BELIEVE THE RIGHT DOCTRINE.
The Lord hates every false way (Psalms
Perverted doctrines are to be forsaken, not em-
braced (Ephesians 5:11; 2 John 9:11; Galatians
The right way is not always the shortest or
smoothest but it is always safest and best.

mulch acts as an insulating blan-
ket over plant roots keeping them
cool in hot weather, and warm in
Another advantage is that a
mulch slows evaporation, and
helps conserve moisture in the
soil. Also it reduces the crusting
that, can occur when the soil sur-
face dries out. This is important,
because it allows water from rain
or irrigation to soak into the soil,
rather than running off and caus-
As organic mulches decom-
pose, they work down into the
soil. This Improves soil texture,
and may even increase soil fertili-
ty. To make a long story short,
mulching just makes the land-
scape look better.
Two types of mulching mate-
rials are used in Florida organic
mulches and invert mulches. Or-
ganic mulches include compost,
bark, leaves, grass clippings,
straw, wood chips, sawdust, and
similar materials. Inert mulches
are things like gravel, pebbles

and polyethylene plastic film.
Applying an organic mulch is
a simple matter. Just spread a
two to four inch thick layer of the
selected material around the base
of newly planted landscape orna-
mentals. Then, add more mulch
as needed during the year. but,
never allow the mulch to pile up
around the trunks or lower
branches of your plants. Spring is
usually the best time to add
mulch to established plants.
If you're mulching with straw,
wood chips, or sawdust, it's a
good idea to apply some high ni-
trogen fertilizer at the same time.
One or two cups of such. fertilizer
per bushel of mulch should help
avoid deficiency problems.
If you're using plastic mulch
the polyethylene film we men-
tioned you need to add fertiliz-
er first. Apply about two pounds
of a recommended garden fertiliz-
er for every 100 square feet
Broadcast it over the area, and
work it down about two or three
inches into the soil. This may not
seem like much fertilizer,- but
plastic mulch reduces the
amount that leaches out of the
root zone of your plants. So, you
can apply less fertilizer to begin
with. That's one reason why IFAS
scientists recommend plastic
mulch for commercial ornamental
and vegetable crop production In.
can be one of your most valuable
garden practices. Mulch helps
control weeds, and conserves soil
moisture. It also moderates soil
temperature, improves texture,
and can increase fertility. Finally,
mulch adds to the beauty of your
landscape, for a relatively low
cost. You'll get good results by
using a variety of organic and In-
ert mulching materials.
