City Wants Alternative to Solid Waste

"County's Three Bids (for Pick-up and Disposal) Are Initially

The Port St. Joe City Commission has com-
mitted itself to hunting an alternative to the
County's solid waste collection and disposal
method. "Those rates are entirely too high for
what the people are getting," Mayor Frank Pate
remarked to the Commission Tuesday night, as
they looked over a charge schedule just pre-
sented to the County Commission in a special
meeting only a few hours prior to the City Com-
mission meeting.
The reason the City is getting involved in
the situation is because the County Commis-
sion is committing themselves to closing down
the compactor operations, where the City
dumps its collected solid waste for compaction

and transfer to the Bay County incinerator.
This action by the County would mean that the
City of Port St. Joe would have to haul its re-
fuse to the incinerator, or contract with the col-
lector to operate its service.
The City of Port St. Joe charges its residen-
tial customers $8.50 per month for pick-up
twice each week. The lowest contract price fur-
nished the County was $9.90 per month for
once a week pick-up.
"That isn't so bad," Mayor Pate said, "But
the big problem is in the commercial rates.
These are just too high." The commercial rates

are fixed on a ,

Asks for County

to Protect Jobs

Attempts of the Gulf County
Commission to contract their sol-

tractors, had a new dimension in-
troduced into their negotiations
Tuesday afternoon.
In a special workshop meet-
ing with the two potential service
companies-M&O Sanitation and
Argus Services, both of Panama
City--designed to identify rates
quoted and services offered, Tues-
day, the Commission attempted
to tie down the bid information in
such a manner that would be
easily understandable.
Tamara Laine, executive di-
rector of the Port St. Joe/Gulf
* County Chamber of Commerce
asked the Commission to consid-
er a solution for solid waste dis-
posal which would not send jobs
to Bay County at the expense of
Gulf County. 'We send enough of
our dollars to Bay County with-
out eliminating jobs over here
which will be filled by a Bay
County firm.
'You would have us get into
the business?" chairman Traylor
asked. 'Yes," replied Laine.

Traffic Death
Gulf County was only four
days into the new year before
experiencing its first traffic
death of 1992.
James McGee, 45, 1007
Monument Avenue, Port St.
* Joe, who has lived here only a
few months, became the
county's first traffic fatality of
the year early Saturday morn-
ing, in a single car crash a few
miles north of Wewahitchka on
Highway 71.
McGee was said to have lost
control of his 1976 Chevrolet
while driving north on State
Road 71. His car went off the
east shoulder of the highway.
McGee apparently over-
compensated, swerving his car
back across the highway and
leaving the shoulder on the
,other side. The car overturned,
coming to rest on the roof.
McGee was pronounced dead at
the scene.
McGee worked as a self-
employed carpenter here in
Port St. Joe.

One of the big stories in the
daily newspapers during the past
week was the possibility that
Spaceport Florida may disappear
from the scene because of lack of

said they have jobs available with
their companies and would con-

county in the solid waste collec-

they were currently paying more
than beginner employees with the
County Mosquito Control Depart-
ment, which currently has charge
of solid waste matters. Both firms
said they did not fund retirement,
which all County employees cur-
rently have.
Both firms expressed a will-
ingness to keep the county's two
compactors open for a period of
time, operating them on a fee ba-

Man Killed

Instantly In

Wire Theft
A 27-year-old Parker man
was killed Instantly when he
came in contact with a high volt-
age electric line off the Willis
Landing road Tuesday afternoon
of last week.
According to Gulf County
Sheriff Al Harrison, Norwood Al-
bert Grant of Parker, and an ac-
complice were attempting to re-
move copper electric transmission
wire from poles which ran along-
side the Lister Landing road, in
an isolated section of the county.
'They were trying to steal the
wire to recover the copper it con-
tained," Sheriff Harrison said.
'"When Grant pulled the wire to
the ground with a rope, where he
could reach it and cut it, he was
killed instantly when his hand
touched the bare wire," the Sher-
iff said.
The accomplice left when
Grant was killed and was not
identified immediately after the

Davila said yesterday that a war-
rant has been issued for the sec-
ond man in the incident "Bay
County is trying to track him
down and serve the warrant, but

The electric line was a part of
the system of Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative and served several
camps along the Chipola River,
south of Lister Landing.
According to Gulf Coast Elec-
tric officials, the copper wire in-
volved in the electrocution brings
about $1.00 per pound at scrap
metal dealers.

-22 Com eating for OYW Saturday

Senior Citizens Assume Sponsorship to Maintain 25 Years of Competition

Twenty-two of Gulf County's pretty young ladies will com-
pete in a pageant Saturday night to become the county's 25th
Outstanding Young Woman of the Year, according to Jerry
Stokoe, pageant project chairman for the Gulf County Senior
Citizens, sponsor of the event this year. Competition will begin
at 7:00 p.m., in the Commons Area of Port St. Joe High
The contestants will be in competition for $1,000 in schol-
arship grants and awards. The pageant activities are under
the direction of Mrs. Sandra Cannon.
Kim Davis, 1991 Outstanding Young Woman, will be as-
sisting as the master of ceremonies. Others taking part in
staging the several facets of the pageant will be Mrs. Donna
Keith, in charge of contestant make-up and Pam Nobles, who
will choreograph and instruct the contestants in their talent
productions and group performances.
The Gulf County Senior Citizens organization is taking

over the presentation of the pageant this year, after several
years of sponsorship by the Kiwanis Club. The initial pageant-
-known as the Junior Miss Pageant-was staged by the Port
St. Joe Jaycees. The contest was originally a nation-wide pro-
ject of the Jaycees.
Tickets are currently on sale for Saturday night's event, by
members of the Senior Citizens organization and the 22 con-
testants to the pageant. Tickets are $3.00 for adults and
$1.00 for students. Tickets will go on sale at the door to the
pageant auditorium Saturday afternoon at 5:00 p.m.
Participants in the pageant will be Mary Ann Byrd, Leanna
Harcus, Pam Bowen, Shannon Smith, Angela Jennings, Elitha
Gant, Jennifer Brewer, Kristy Melvin, Mildred Adkinson, Tracy
Davis, Cindy Davis, Stacie McGill, Patricia Nedley, Carolyn
Stephens, Shelley Campbell, Danielle Gillis, Kerry Heaps, Tra-
cy Wade, Melissa Wflliamson, Susie Pritchett, Jeanet Hale and

Florida Going Ahead With Plans In Spite of Threat

Wetherell made a statement to
the Orlando Sentinel saying,
"Spaceport doesn't have the polit-
ical clout to compete. That's the
way it Is. I'm sorry."
Governor Chiles also issued
statements indicating the Space-
port program was expendable,
even though it had promise of at-
tracting world-wide interest to
Florida for space-oriented experi-
The statements that the

Spaceport programs face an early
demise were of special interest
here in Port St. Joe. One of the
two launch sites in the state is at
Cape San Bias, where smaller
commercial rockets will be sent
aloft from existing facilities. The
program also had promise of sat-
ellite industries and companies
locating near the launch sites to
carry on experiments.
Three weeks ago, an an-
nouncement was made of a new

rocket fuel depot to be located
near Pace.
A conversation with Ed Elle-
good, executive director of Space-
port Florida, on Tuesday, re-
vealed a ray of hope that the
Spaceport program would not be
dumped. Ellegood said he had
hopes the program would proceed
as planned and that funding
would continue to be made avail-
able to keep the important pro-

gram alive and well.
Ellegood pointed out that
nothing has been stopped in the
Spaceport plans. "We've just been
waiting for approval by Eglin AFB
before making our first shot here
in Gulf County and we think that
approval may come down in writ-
ing within a week. After the writ-
ten approval is received, it will
take us about three weeks to put
the shot program into action."
Verbal approval from Eglin

has already been received, but no
action may be taken until the
written order is handed down.
Several potential customers are
waiting in line to use the Cape
San Bias site, especially Florida
State University of Tallahassee.
The Spaceport's position is
still certain until July, when the
new budget year begins. Ellegood
said he is reasonably sure the
program will survive the funding
cut-off scare.

Problems Ahead
Going through last year's files of The Star in order to come up
with the information for last week's recapitulation of last year's
activities in and around our county and city, we noted several
things which are still problems or improvements to our infra-
structure, and will be in the year to come.
There are such things as completion of the county-wide road
re-surfacing program; there is the final solution to the $1 mil-
lion-a-year solid waste expense problem which the County Corn-
mission seems determined to make a decision on within the first
few weeks in 1992; there is a re-study of public values in local
government and schools which must be given a second and
maybe even a third look in determining the expenditure of
shrinking income and shrinking ability to increase that public
income. prethat
All of these problems have been with us for a while and show ness,
no signs of folding up their tents and stealing off into oblivion. cond
All of these problems require a hard decision-decisions which go hi
will change our public life-style. The change will have to do with I
whether we are willing to come up with more money to keep do- such
ing business as usual or should we pare our desires for public what
services and accomplishments to our present ability to finance carry
these desires.
Even in Port St. Joe we can see increased public activity to
provide for Gulf County citizens those things which they have
said they would rather not or cannot pay for themselves. So, the
state and federal governments step in and provide an agency to
do for us what we have said we don't want to do for ourselves.
Even though these services are not paid for with our tax money,
someone, somewhere, has shelled out the tax dollars to do for us
what we have said we do not care to do for ourselves. We may
see these things fade away and we really have no recourse in the
matter since we have already said we don't need the services bad
enough to pay for them with our own resources.
You can look for less services and probably will pay more
taxes in 1992.

Root of the Problems
TV character, Virgil Tibbs' wife made a commercial on televi-
sion the other day, supporting education and made a statement
which went something like this, "Show me a parent who cares
whether or not their child has homework to do and I'll show you
a child who is doing well in school."
There were two ways a person could take that statement. Y'"
They could conclude that the TV actress was saying that a high
school student would do well with his subjects if he did home-
work. Or, one could assume that if a parent cares enough about
his child's education to see that he does his homework and does
it properly, that child will do well in school.
We agree. If a student has the support and guidance of his
parents toward accomplishments in school and if he is encour-
aged and supported to perform his homework tasks properly,
that student will make good grades in school. Guaranteed!
The actress didn't say, nor do we believe it makes any differ-
ence whether or not the parent can do the homework. The key
seems Just to be interested in the pupil's doing the work and
showing an interest in his or her progress.
There's no doubt that parental interest is an important key
to a school accomplishing its work with a student. There's no
doubt that lack of interest on the part of parents toward the ac-
complishments of their children, will almost surely result in a
lack of interest in accomplishment by the child. Guaranteed!
All of which brings us to pitch in our two cents worth about
why students are not learning in American schools these days.
Time magazine did a comparison article several months ago
about the schools in different nations of the world. The ingredi-
ent which seemed to be in those successful foreign schools, and
seemed to be missing from the American schools was parental
involvement toward the student. Everything else seemed to be
close or equal.
One of the main reasons we think our schools may be taking
the blame for failure is the demise of the PTA. No Joke! Do you
remember when the PTA was a force to be considered in our
school system? They met regularly, supported school activities,
raised money to purchase items needed by the schools, support-
ed activities by the students, etc. The PTA was an active support
group, which seems to have abdicated its role ih education.
As a result of the demise of the PTA, parents no longer show
up at school in large numbers. Actually, they hardly show up at
all unless it is to complain about something. We obviously think
lack of involvement by parents is at the root of school problems.

My dog box was made out of

skinny side. And he was what we
call a two county dog. If you let
him out in this county, you
picked him up in the next.
"Kes, let's go."
You can imagine my embar-

rassment! I didn't really want to
get my dog out. I turned my light

over to the woods and turned him
loose quickly.
They were on a coon in about
10 minutes. Well, they were all on
the coon except for that Frank
dog. He was about 20 yards off
the road, running around in cir-
cles. He wouldn't go3on and they
couldn't call him back. I reckon
he spent too much time in the

IT HAS BEEN a long holiday
season, hasn't it? We've been get-

getting over holidays for two
weeks now. It's been hard to get
anything accomplished, what
with people being out of town,
having visitors, taking vacations,
having holidays off, etc.
But, who cares? Who really
tried to get anything done? Most
everyone was busy for those two
weeks, doing Just what I said .

or getting over the holidays. I
even did that.
Somehow or other, we

Wednesday morning, after
the New Year holiday, I woke up
at 7:00 a.m., to hear the City's
trash truck and pick-up machine
out front picking up the dregs of
the holidays. They were getting
an early start for the considerable
trash load which was spread
throughout the City.

Ordinarily I hear or see them
on our street at about 8:00 to
8:30 in the morning, when every-
thing is normal.
But, a Christmas holiday pe-
riod is anything but "normal" in
the trash business. I found that
out during the few years I served
as a City Commissioner. I also
found out that the people who do
the work to pick up this left-over
from happier days, are conscien-
tious about their work and their
responsibility. They don't just
come up and say they'll take so
many days off for the holidays.
They choose those days off so as
to cause as little hardship as pos-

football games New Year's Eve
and New Year Day. I suppose
there are a few University of Flori-

who would be just as satisfied if I

tant portion of the holiday.
Especially, those guys who
erected that billboard on Dixie
Belle Curve, would like .to leave
well enough alone, rather than
rub salt into new wounds.
But, poor old University of

the regular season, even to de-

Florida State University-a feat
which prompted the erection of
the billboard-then wound up be-
ing the only Florida team to lose a
bowl game.
Somehow, one just has to get
the feeling that they let us down.
The television commentators an-
nouncing the game, kept telling

us all what Florida needed to be
doing to finish Notre Dame off in
quick fashion.
They sounded so knowledgea-

p.m., New Year's Eve and the kids
in our neighborhood were having
a ball. It was a night out after
dark for them and they were
making the most of it. They were
running and playing. You would
have thought it was Hallowe'en,
the way they were enjoying their
freedom outdoors after dark.
Most of the Christmas deco-
rations were down by New Year's
Eve. I took ours down on New

When I was making the
rounds, putting newspapers on
newsstands Tuesday afternoon, I
came up on a conversation in a
Mexico Beach convenience store,
where a small, sprightly woman
of mature age was asking a man,
whom she evidently knew. "Does
everyone have to eat blackeyed
peas and hog Jowl for New Year
dinner?" I broke in with, "Doesn't
everyone in the world do this
highly civilized thing?"
"No", she said. "It must be
unique with the south. Back in
Brooklyn where I was raised, we
just put a little more spaghetti
and a few more meat balls on the
dinner plate."
That menu was lucky for her,
so I Just might switch my New

luck to remove herself from
Brooklyn and re-locate in the gar-
den spot of America didn't she?
And she can only blame spaghetti

1991 In Review
The year 1991 will go down in history as just that: The year
1991. The events of 1991, however, or some of them, will be re-
membered in a special way. They will become a part of history.
Below are a few:
*For the first time we saw a live war on television. It didn't
last too long and I guess we won, but we didn't finish it, in my
*Our dog ran away from home two times during 1991. The
last time he was gone for about two weeks and when he finally
did come home he required medical attention to the tune of al-
most $100. If he runs off again I might call the Franklin County
Humane Society to him.
SOur family lost several members to death last year, two of
whom I was particularly close. F.L. Tanton was a brother-in-law
who was more of a brother, and Comer Bodie, my last living un-
cle, died three days after Christmas. Both were wonderful, loving
men and will be fondly missed.
*I celebrated another birthday in 1991, but didn't we all?
There was probably a difference, though, because I celebrated
mine quietly and alone.
*Magic Johnson announced he tested positive for the AIDS
virus and now he's a hero? Wilt Chamberlin's boast about 20,000

Guy Webb of Argus Services,
echoed Osborne's statement.
Webb said there are about
5,500 potential solid waste cus-

his firm currently serves 667 of
them, primarily in the rural and
unincorporated areas.
After intensive questioning of
-both firm managers, County

Building Construction Up In 1991

But Valuation of New Buildings 1
Building permits issued in Gulf County this past year, took a
slight juml5 in number over the previous year, but dipped ever
so slightly in value, according to information released this week
by building inspector, Don Butler.,
With housing starts down over the nation, Gulf County had
an increase in new construction starts in 1991 according to But-
ler's report.,A total of 88 permits were issued last year for new
construction, for an increase of seven over the previous year.
Butler said his department issued 693 permits for all permit-
table purposes during 1991 and 541 in 1990. The dollar value of
the construction was down in comparison with the 1990 figures.
In 1991, the total value of construction under permit was
$4,990,492. In 1990, the total ran $5,030,259.81; a reduction of
The largest increase in numbers was for permits to building
storage sheds, additions, pools, and such improvements to exist-
ing property. Eighty-six permits were issued for this purpose
and only 47 were issued in 1990. The total value of these pro-
jects was $389,471.

New construction permits jumped in numbers from 81 to 88,
but slumped in value from $4,769,559 in 1990 to $4, 601,021 in
People must be moving more these days here in Gulf County.
A total of 90 electric meter changes and panel changes were per- .-
mitted in 1990, but in 1991, that number has jumped to 119. In
a companion permitting service, permission was given to set 98
new electrical services in 1990 and a whopping 134 in 1991.
Mobile home permits are still a big item on the permitting .
agenda. In 1990, 117 permits were given to mobile homes which
did not carry a license tag. In 1991, 105 mobile home permits -.
were issued.
Butler said the department took in $39,678.11 in permit fees
during the past year. In 1990, only $29,357.71 was received in
fees. Part of the increase in fee receipts was due to an adjust-
ment of some inspection fees to make the service more self-

da several years ago with their
plan to increase their withdrawal
pf fresh water from the system to
serve Atlanta. The three states
have been bickering over the mat-
ter of who gets how much water
since the early 1970's.
Nearly every community, on
the shores of the Chattahoochee
River, withdraws water as ,it flows
between Georgia and Alabama
- '-til It forms the Apalaclilcola
hear Chattahoochee, where the
three states join. Alabama wants
its fair share of the river water
and Florida wants the flow to re-
main virtually the same as it has
been for years, so as to maintain
the proper salinity and mix of wa-
ter in Apalachicola Bay, where
most of Florida's oysters are
grown and harvested.
The agreement reached by
representatives of the three states
Friday of last week, meant the
cessation of pursuit of a lawsuit
over the water supply by the
states of Alabama and Florida.
The U.S. Corps of Engineers has
agreed to start a three year study
of the system and the balance of
water in Apalachicola Bay. Each
state will fund the study to the
tune of $250,000 each year for
each state. The Corps has esti-
mated the study will cost approxi-
mately $3 million.
Leaders from all three states
are hopeful but skeptical. This is
the third time the three states
have agreed to cooperate with
each other and allot the water
supply where it is proven to be
most needed. Allocation of water
for drinking and seafood produc-
tion aren't the only demands on
the river system, which stretches
to the mountains of north Geor-
gia. Water shipping concerns are
also covetous of the system's wa-
ter supply. The river system is
navigable to Columbus, Georgia
on the Chattahoochee and to
Bainbridge, Georgia on the Flint
While a fight has raged over
the system's water supply at least
three times since the 1970's, offi-
cials from all three states are
hopeful that an agreement can be
reached satisfactory to all parties
in this latest attempt.

down to remove hiding places, or
other measures to be taken to re-
move the problem.
'We're going to concentrate
on the area and get the problem
stopped before someone is seri-
ously injured or killed," Chief
Richter said.
'We think it's young people
out for adventure, but their ac-
tions are very dangerous," Richter
said. The Chief said his depart-
ment is going to concentrate on
the problem until it is solved.
Chief Richter turned in his
annual report for the year 1991,
reporting the department received
4,264 calls for service last year.
Of these calls, 413 involved crimi-
nal activities, including 223 felo-
nies and .190 misdemeanors. The
department was involved in 561
traffic activities, including 80 ac-
cidents which resulted in 11 inju-
ries and no deaths.
The department had a crime
solution record of 78%. State-
wide, the percentage of crimes
solved is about 29%.
In other matters of business,
the Commission:
-Adopted a resolution sup-
porting the continued operation
of Apalachee Planning Council.
-Changed the February 4
meeting to February 11 because
of a conflict with the annual
Chamber of Commerce meeting.

In China, pork is the frfoft popular .meat and the focus of any number of
tantalizing dishes. Perhaps the best known is "Sweet & Sour Pork." A
staple on virtually every Chinese menu, the great taste of this classic can be
recreated easily at home with Kikkoman Sweet & Sour Sauce. Its authentic
flavor is a precise blend of sugar and vinegar combined with naturally
brewed soy sauce, tomato paste, pineapple, onion, green bell pepper, garlic
and spicy red pepper. This recipe takes less than an hour to prepare and all
you need to serve as a "go-along" is a bowl of hot steamed rice.
1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 onion, chunked
1 tablespoon Kikkoman Soy 1 green bell pepper, chunked
Sauce 1 cup Kikkoman Sweet & Sour
1 pound boneless pork shoulder, Sauce
cut into 1-inch cubes 1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks,
2 tablespoons vegetable oil drained
,2 carrots, cut into thin slices
Blend cornstarch and soy sauce in small bowl; stir in pork until well
coated. Brown pork in hot oil in Dutch oven or large skillet over
medium-high heat. Stir in 14 cup water. Cover and simmer 20 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Stir carrots, onion, green pepper and sweet & sour
sauce into pork mixture. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes longer, stirring
frequently. Add pineapple chunks; cook and stir only until pineapple are
heated through. Makes 4 servings.

But for Florida's 218,567 li-
censed hunters, the doctor's ulti-
matum simply means get out into
the woods and hunt more often,
and eat more game.
."People who think hunting is
a lazy man's sport are' way off
base," said Capt.-Ed Tyer- -dordi
nator" of the Fldrida 'Garu and
Fresh Water Fish Commission's
hunter education program.
Tyer cites the work and ex-
ercise involved in hunting as
proof. There's setting up camp,
gathering firewood and carrying
water. In the woods, hunters of-
ten walk miles to penetrate their
prey's habitat and lessen compe-
tition for game. And if the hunter
is successful,, there's the matter
of carrying the game back to
"Just try to, tell a hunter that
carrying a 120-pound deer three
miles through the woods isn't ex-
ercise," Tyer said.
The yield from a hunt is good
for hunters, too. According to the
U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA),
wild meat generally has less fat
,than meat from domestic live-
stock. And no one has injected
artificial growth hormones into or
fed bulk-producing chemicals to
Florida's deer, rabbits, squirrels,
ducks, quail, turkey, wild hogs or
other game.
The USDA reports that a 100
gram serving of beef (and that's
what's in your average hambur-
ger) contains 141 calories, 20.6
grams of protein and 5.8 grams of
fat. An equal serving of deer meat.
contains 120 calories, 22.9 grams
of protein and just 2.4 grams of
fat. For health-conscious Ameri-
cans, that's a big difference.
"What's nice about my hunt-
ing is that when it's dinner time,
we're not limited to beef, pork or
chicken," said Tyer, who is an
avid hunter. '"We can have quail
pie, smoked venison or a nice
roasted duck."

According to Tyer, though,
sportsmen must be careful han-
dling wild game to preserve its
freshness and flavor.
"Hunters should keep the
meat cool, clean and protected
from insects until it is cut up and
frozen," Tyer said.
To learn more about hunting
and safety in the field, Tyer urges
sportsmen to enroll in the Com-
"-'mission's hunter education
course, offered free to the public.
at locations throughout the state.
Outdoor ethics, proper game care
in the field and first aid are
among the topics covered in the
15-hour course.
Beginning June 1, 1991, per-
sons born on or after June 1,
1975 must complete a hunter
safety course before hunting with
a firearm.

New Hunting Rules In Effect

A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

Even sportsmen who have
hunted for years need to read
carefully the rules and regula-
tions for the 1991-92 hunting
seasons. The Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission re-
cently announced that several
new regulations take effect his
Beginning January 1, 1992, a
few changes in licensing made by
the 1991 Legislature will become
law. The following changes are
not currently in effect, but will
take effect during the season:
Military Exemption: Military
personnel not stationed in Florida
and home on leave for 30 days or
less will be able to hunt without a
license and without wildlife man-
agement, state waterfowl, turkey
and archery stamps beginning
January 1. This exemption for
military personnel has been in
place for fishing for several years.
Lifetime Licenses: Beginning
January 1, the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
will offer lifetime and five-year li-
censes. Applications for the life-
time licenses will be available in

November, though, so they may
be given as holiday gifts. Lifetime
licenses offer the greatest savings
in licensing and stamp costs if
purchased before the recipient
reaches five years of age. Funds
collected for lifetime licenses will

be held in perpetuity only the
interest will be spent, and only af-
ter the license recipient reaches
age 16. The lifetime license pro-
gram will build an endowment to
support wildlife and fisheries pro-
grams in the future.

Dental fHealth



What is the world's most
prevalent disease? If your an-
swer is the common cold -
you're wrong! Tooth decay is the
most universal disease in the
world. Only a minute fraction of
the world's people are free of it.
Only 2 percent of the American
population has been spared.
Earliest cavities show up right af-
ter primary teeth erupt. The aver-
age 13-year-old already has at
least five cavities in permanent
teeth. Girls seem to get more
cavities than boys; but then,
girls get their teeth sooner.
A cavity is a hole in a tooth
caused by decay which is pro-
duced by the combination of
plaque and acid. It doesn't take
a few days for trouble to devel-
op. Tooth decay can start in less

than 15 minutes after eating. All
that is needed are three ingre-
dients; a tooth, bacteria (in den-
tal plaque) and sugar. When the
bacteria and sugar meet, acid is
formed. When the acid and tooth
meet, the acid starts etching a
hold in the tooth.
Today's diets, high in re.
fined sugars and carbohydrates ,
are conducive to decay. But
careful and PROMPT oral hy-
giene procedures after eating
will reduce, if not eliminate, the
decay producing activity of the
modern diet.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

The Marine Fisheries Com-
mission held final public hearings
on rule proposals for spiny lob-
ster, sharks, and fishing gear
during a four-day meeting recent-
ly in Miami. The Commission also
considered further policy for lob-
ster, sharks, and gear, and con-
sidered issues regarding its spot-
ted seatrout, snook, and tropical
ornamental marine life resources
rules at the meeting.
Spiny Lobster
The Commission held a final
public hearing on a rule proposal
to set the maximum number of
spiny lobster traps allowed each
season at 10 percent fewer than
were allowed the previous season,
beginning August 6, 1993. The
Commission intends to annually
review the impact of the trap re-
duction schedule and will adjust
the rate if necessary. The pro-
posed rule also provides that
landward of the Territorial Sea
Line, no more than 15 feet of any
buoy line attached to a buoy used
to mark a spiny lobster trap or
trotline shall float on the surface
of the water. The Commission in-
tends to take this rule proposal to

*prohibits all harvest, land-

The Commission agreed to
continue this final public hearing
until a special meeting January
18, 1992 in Tampa in order to
consider possible bycatch allow-
ances. The Commission intends
to take this rule to the Governor
and Cabinet for approval in Feb-
ruary, and to implement the rule

in March, if approved. In addi-

The Commission received
public testimony regarding lan-

Commission voted to propose an
amendment to the rule to allow
possession of hand-held landing
nets and cast nets with snook in
possession, and to hold a final
public hearing on this rule
amendment only if requested.
The Commission will hold a
special two-day meeting January
17 and 18 in Tampa to continue
the final public hearing on its
shark rule (possible bycatch al-
lowances) and to consider various
administrative issues. The meet-

State Cracking Down On Unpaid Debts, Criminal Fines

If you live in North Florida
:and owe money*to the federal gov-
ernment, you may not have that
.money for long.
As part of a recent effort by
the Justice Department to crack
down on unpaid debt, the U.S.
Attorney for the Northern District
,of Florida recovered
-$6,861,034.75 in unpaid debts,
criminal fines, civil penalties and
.forfeitures in 1991. The money
-recovered goes directly to govem-
*ment agencies, the U.S. Treasury,
*local law enforcement agencies
.and programs assisting victims of
The amount collected this
:year is over three times the of-
:fice's operating budget of
$2,403,235. "People are often
:very surprised to discover just
'how much money is collected
through this office each year,"
said U.S. Attorney Ken Sukhia.
'This is one area of government
that pays for Itself."
Sukhia noted that his office
spent less than $303,000 to col-
lect $6.8 million this year. "The
Justice Department's aebt collec-
tion program is a real bargain for
the taxpayer, by far more efficient
than any private collection agen-
A recently passed law has giv-
en the Justice Department au-
* thority to attach bank accounts,
garnish wages and other income
and file judgment liens on real es-
tate which will remain in effect
for 20 years. In addition, the law
allows the government to collect
an extra 10 percent to help pay
the cost of collecting the debts.
'The new law will greatly en-
hance our ability to collect all

types of debts," said Assistant
U.S. Attorney Bryan Wilson, su-
pervisor of the office's financial
litigation unit "In addition, the
taxpayer will no longer have to
foot the bill to recover the unpaid
Wilson stated the new law
also gives the government new
powers to prevent the fraudulent
transfer of assets by debtors try-
ing to avoid their obligations.
About 15 percent of the judg-
ments stem from federal loans
which were in default. Examples
include student loans and loans
made by the Department of Vete-
rans Affairs and Small Business
Administration. 'The bulk of the
money comes from fines and for-
feitures levied against persons
who broke the law," Wilson ex-
In addition to the new debt
collection law, U.S. Attorneys are
stepping up enforcement of exist-
ing laws to collect more money
from criminals making huge prof-
its. Under the law, items which
are used in crimes or purchased
with money obtained through
crime are subject to forfeiture.
These items have become a major
target of prosecutors.
But bad news for criminals
means good news for North Flori-
da residents, according to Suk-
hia. "The vast majority of funds
taken from criminals are pumped
right back to local law enforce-
ment agencies or victim assis-
tance programs. In this case
crime does pay the good guys."
Over $3 million was distribut-
ed to North Florida police and
sheriffs departments through the

'The money is distributed to help
fight crime on a local level, where
it can do the most good," Sukhia
Sukhia said local victim as-

distance agencies have also bene-
fited from the collection efforts.
Last year, Florida victim agencies
received almost $3 million from
federal grants. An additional
$1,539,000 was distributed to in-

dividual victims of violent crime.
'The money which is provided to
Florida victim assistance agencies
and individual victims of violent
crime greatly helps local commu-
nities and individuals cope with
the aftermath of violent crime,"
aid Sukhia.
Sukhia believes these sharing
programs benefit the taxpayer as
well. "The forfeiture laws have

taken some of the profit out of
crime. Sharing these funds with
local agencies gives taxpayers
more police protection and victim
assistance without increasing

even more money. "We anticipate
a 14 percent increase in our col-
lections for 1992," Wilson ex-

One of the most interesting
groups of plants are the Aloes.
These plants are widely used as
ornamentals for outdoor plants in
south Florida and as container
plants for indoors throughout the
state. My information on Aloe
Vera was provided in parts by Ur-
ban Horticulturist Dr. Robert J.
Black, with IFAS of the University
of Florida.
Aloes belong to a group of
plants called succulents. Succu-
lents have thick fleshy leaves
which allow them to store water
and survive during periods of
drought. Aloes are native of
South Africa, but some originated
in the Cape Verde Islands and
Mediterranean regions. There are
nearly 200 species of Aloes vary-
ing in growth habit from tiny
stemless plants only an inch or
two high to climbing and trailing
forms, huge clustering shrubs
and giant tree-like specimens 50
feet high. Aloes have thick, fleshy,
pointed leaves which are ar-
ranged spirally to form short ro-
Aloes have long been prized
for their magnificent flowering
habit. Brilliant yellow, orange, or
red tubular flowers appear in the
fall and winter on single or
branched stalks.
In recent years, interest has
focused on Aloe barbadensis
which has popularly become
known as "Aloe vera". Much of
this interest has been generated
by articles appearing in various
periodicals about the economic
and therapeutic values of this
plant. The juice released from
fresh cuts of the leaves is-a home-
remedy for relief from the pain of
bums. The gel derived from the
leaves is used in the manufacture
of such cosmetic products as
sunburn lotions, hand cream,
shampoo and other preparations.
The therapeutic value of aloes
can be traced back to ancient civ-
ilizations. The early Greeks and
Romans produced a substance
called "bitter aloes" from the juice
of another species of aloe which
they used as a laxative. The an-
cient Egyptians used extracts
from aloes to embalm the dead.
There have been many tales

'Thanks for

Your Support'
-Lions Club

The Port St. Joe Lions Club
would like to take this opportuni-
ty to thank all of the members of
the Port St. Joe community who
made 1991 a big success for the
Lions Club projects. Without your
support, the fund raisers and dai-
ly efforts by the Lions Club would
not be as effective as they were.
As a result of the bar-b-que
chicken dinner and the "Donkey
Basketball" fund raisers, many of
Port St. Joe's residents that could
not afford glasses or eye exams
were able to do so. All proceeds
from the fund raisers go directly
into an account for funding vision
problems for those in the commu-
nity that may be less fortunate.
Many of Port St. Joe's com-
munity business leaders and con-
cerned citizens are members of
the Port St. Joe Lions Club and
give freely of their time to operate
this non-profit charitable organi-
zation. The Club meets on the
first three Wednesdays of each
month at the Gulf Pines Hospital
dining room from noon until 1:00
p.m. If you would like to be a part
of a worthwhile group and enjoy
meeting nice people, attend one
of the meetings and see what
goes on.
Thanks again Port St. Joe for
helping the Lions Club to help
others and look forward to 1992.
Plans are to have a "white ele-
phant sale", another chicken bar-
b-que, and the famous "donkey
basketball tournament" in 1992.

and unfounded claims that the
gel produced by aloe vera can
cure ailments such as stomach
ulcer, skin cancer, scalds, abra-
sions, bruises, insect bites and
arthritis. Unfortunately, there is
no scientific evidence to substan-
tiate these claims.
SAloes are grown commercially
in the warmer regions of Florida,
California and Texas for the gel
used in the manufacture of cos-
metics and medicines. The mar-
ket for this crop is very limited
and growing, harvesting and dis-
tribution of the crop is usually in
accordance with the requirements
;set by the manufacturer who will
use the product.

THE OLD YEAR is a memory now. We have a new year
that is fresh and unmarred. As you stand on the threshold of
1992, you have the thrilling possibility of making this the
greatest year of your life. This is not unrealistic. It is the sol-
id prospect for the man or woman who takes Christ serious-
ly. You can take the handle of fear or the handle of faith
when you pick up 1992. King George Vi quoted this famous
statement in a New Year's Day broadcast:
I said to a man who stood at the gate of the year:
Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.
And he replied: Go out into the darkness and put your
hand into the hand of God.
That shall be to you better than a light, and safer than a
known way.
This new year can actually be a new life for anyone who
will accept Christ as his savior and follow His will for your
life. '"We are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like
as Christ was raised from .the dead by the glory of the Fa-
ther, even so we also should walk in newness of life." (Rom..
If you have been a half-hearted Christian, now is the
time to make that right. "So then because thou art luke-
warm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my
mouth." (Rev. 3:16)
We have been given another year. Another chance you
might say. Let's not wait another minute to get right with
S-Power for Today

The Gulf County Board of County Commis-
sioners wish to advise the public that many of the
roadways of Gulf County have privately erected
signs that have been posted within the County's
right-of-ways without permission. Posting signs in
the County's right-of-ways without a permit is Ille-
gal. Prior to taking legal action against illegal
signs, the Board of County Commissioners re-
quests that sign owners remove their signs in
cooperation with Gulf County ordinances. Sign vio-
lations are particularly noted on County Roads C-
30 and E-30. Gulf County ordinance #88-3 applies
to encroachment on County right-of-ways.
