.PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1992
Man Found Dead
A dead man was found slumped over on the ground be-
hind the Hull convenience store on Highway 98 at about 7:30
a.m. last Thursday, morning, according to Port St. Joe Police
Department Lieutenant, Jeff Duval.
The man was identified as Calvin Jackson, 63, of 518
Main Street. He had no local family, but Police located a sur-
viving son in Donalsonville, Georgia.
Lieutenant Duval said Jackson was found by Ronald Jen-
kins, who was going to, the store to make a purchase. He no-
ticed Jackson slumped over on the ground and went to inves-
tigate. Determining that he was dead, Jenkins called the
When Jenkins found Jackson, it appeared as if he had
been sitting on a concrete block behind the store building
when he died and simply slumped over on the ground.
Lt. Duval said, 'We had to treat the matter as a homicide,
since we didn't know how he had died." Jackson's body was
sent to the Medical Examiner in Panama City for an autopsy.
Results were received the next day and showed he had died
from natural causes.
In the accompanying photo, Lieutenant Jeff Duval and Of-
ficer Troy Simmons cover Jackson's body with a sheet.
Rolling Up Hefty Disposal Costs
"Getting rid of old tires is costing the County a bundle," Com-
mission Chairman Billy Traylor remarked at the regular Com-
misson meeting Tuesday night.
The Chairman stated it was costing Gulf County up to $200
each to prepare old heavy equipment tires to be buried in the
landfill and $3.50 each to prepare common truck tires.
"Compare this with our $25.00 per ton tipping fee for dump-
ing and you will see where we are going in the hole fast!" No pun
Disposing of old tires is becoming a concern of the Commis-
sion, as they continue to have to pay to have them cut up, or
ground up, to prepare them for placing in the landfill.
"Why do we have to cut them up?" asked Commissioner
'To keep them from floating out of the ground!" answered en-
gineer Ralph Rish, who arranged for the first tire grinding nearly
a year ago. Since that time a Blountstown firm has contracted to
cut up old tires on an as-needed basis and the costs are mount-
"It costs us about 50 each to cut up an automobile tire. We
can handle that, since the customer pays $1.00 per tire for their
disposal, but $3.50 per tire for truck tires is going to run us in
the red quick!" Traylor remarked.
The Board agreed. A study must be made.

Richard G. Stauts, Planning
Manager for the Department of
Community Affairs, was in Port
St. Joe Tuesday, for meetings
with Civic leaders to discuss the
City's Downtown Redevelopment
Stauts met with representa-
tives of the Chamber of Com-
merce and the City Commission
9 in a breakfast session, and with
the Redevelopment Committee in
a noon hour session.
Stauts briefed leaders on se-
curing funding for their project
and what they would need to do
in order to get approval of financ-
ing. 'You have to have the points
to secure the funding and much
of the requirements will depend
on how much you have put of
your own money into the project."
The Committee is planning
on applying for a Community De-
velopment Block Grant, to help
with the financing of the beautifi-
cation program. The DCA gets
into the picture because the
thrust. of downtown redevelop-
ment is to attract 'new business
to the downtown area and im-
prove the business which is al-
ready there. A secondary reason
for the redevelopment is to beau-
tify the downtown area making it
safer, more accessible and more
Stauts praised the work done
by the Downtown Redevelopment
Committee, saying, 'You are
headed in the right direction."
The state planning manager

plications open for Community
Development Block Grants
around October. He told the City
officials they must complete work

The County Commission
meeting room was filled to capaci-
ty Tuesday night as residents of
St. Joe Beach circled the wagons
to protest building of three wood-
en walkways at "their beaches".
'We don't want them," said
resident Jean Wilson. 'The beach-
es are private property and we
want to keep it that way."
George Davis pursued the
'private property" theme by read-
ing from his deed; which he said
was descnblonghat parcel opf land
lying west of Highway 98 as be-
longing and for the exclusive use
of residents upland..
Frank Healy called attention
to the safety factor of the present
location, saying, 'The traffic is
congested andd travels at a high
rate of. speed here. When kids
cross the highway to the Jr. Store
for a cold drink or an ice cream
for refreshment, they will be in
danger from the heavy traffic on
the highway. Parked cars will be
an additional hazard, with kids
darting between them and onto
Dr. Frank May said,"These
walkways were started with the
best of intentions, but we don't
need it and it's just too danger-
ous for children."
Commission Chairman Billy
Traylor, said, 'You're right, they
were started with the best of in-
tentions. We thought we were
performing a needed service for
the people who lived at the beach,
giving them a walkway to' the
beach without having to -go
through the prickly pears and
stickers across the dunes."
Commissioner Ed Creamer
said, "I'm a resident of the beach,
too. I don't want it destroyed by
tourists or anyone else. I thought
the walk would be welcomed by
the people there. That's the only
reason it's being built; not for
tourists. It would also give our
people better access to the beach
in order to remove trash and keep
it clean. But if you don't want it, I
don't want it' and it won't be

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, APRIL 30,1992
Saturday is Seafood Festival Day in Gulf County. It provides
us with an excuse to enjoy celebration of springtime, gives us a
vehicle by which we can browse through many crafts and exhib-
its of goods talented people have made. We suspect these people
come to show their wares more from a standpoint of pride in
what they have made than they do to make money off their
The Seafood Festival has evolved into a vehicle to let politi-
clans circulate and hunt for votes, for people to meet and talk, to
be entertained, to eat lots of good food and enjoy themselves for
The Seafood Festival is also a painless way to raise funds for
such activities as retarded children, senior citizens, meals on
wheels and other services it takes a chunk of local change to fi-
nance. Instead of coming to us asking for donations, they enter-
tain us for a day and extract money the painless way.
Jerry Stokoe runs in 50 different directions for three or four
days getting everything ready for the big day and falls into a stu-
por when it's over with. It's good that we have people like Jerry
to put on the Seafood Festival and the other activities we enjoy
through the years.We're just wondering if anyone ever bothers to
tell him how much they appreciate his efforts.
For a week end we can all relax and enjoy ourselves at the
Festival while Jerry works to put it on. It's a class activity and
the people of Gulf County enjoy it.
The Festival furnished many meals for elderly people who ei-
ther can't or won't cook for themselves. It provides for people
and equipment to furnish them with necessary services they
would probably do without rather than go through all the bother
of providing for themselves if it were not for the organization
which does it for them. The retarded citizens would probably go
untended except for the tending their immediate families could
give them, were it not for these services. As it is, the retarded cit-
izens service probably furnishes the best gift a retarded person.
and his family could ever have: a few hours of relief every day
with the knowledge their loved one is being properly cared for.
So, plan to take in the Festival. You will enjoy yourself and
help someone who needs help by enjoying yourself.
Our road paving program is all but finished. What we have
now is about all we're gong to get. To the credit of our County
.and City Commissioners, they have continuously worked with
Sthe contractor, C. W. Roberts Construction Company of Hosford,
:in a spirit of cooperation to come up with the final result.
The project took a while, but the give and take on both sides
-furnished a paving project which was considerably more than it
- originally started with. It shows what dealing with people as peo-
ple wishing to please customers, can do.
We realize this. kind of relationship cannot work with every
'contractor, many are out to get as much as they can for as little
iWork possible. This is the reason for the contract in the first
We commend George Roberts, of C. W. Roberts, for the will-
ingness of he and his firm to be accommodating. We commend
the County and the City for not trying to take advantage of the
Roberts' firm in dealing with them in a project which secured
everything possible for the money available.
Roberts made many suggestions as to ways the County and
the City could get more for their money. He pointed out things in
the plans and specifications which the County nor the City
needed in their finished product but which were included to pro-
tect them against unscrupulous contractors.
Just little things made huge differences in the finished prod-
uct and made the project more acceptable to the people.
It reminded us of the old days when a firm handshake was a
deal. There was nothing kept hidden under the table.. If a change
was good for both parties, they presented it honestly and talked
about it. They didn't come dealing when the only thing you did is
what was written down, signed, sealed and delivered. What isn't
on the plans and spelled out, you don't get!
It was refreshing to deal in this manner. It's a pity more ex-
change of services can't be done in this manner with the vendor
fully trusted to make good on his word.
Rough As A Stucco Bathtub
,~ I /
Now I didn't actually see to-
day's story as it happened. But I
have spent a lifetime wishing I
John David Booker was, as
my mother put it, a little on the
rough side. He was a tall guy,
didn't go anywhere without that
big old brown cowboy hat, wore
those western shirts with the
snap-on buttons and his Wran-
gler jeans were always tucked
into the top of a pair of Justin
boots. He was extra tall, and
skinny as a rail. And that big scar
way up on the side of his head
told me he hadn't spent a lifetime
.laying home in the bed. In a day
where everyone else had gone to
Camels or Lucky Strikes, Mr.
Booker still rolled his own. I
stayed the heck out of his way.
Mother said it was sad how
he was sick so much. My dad put
it a little more bluntly, "J.D.'s o.k.
- when he's sober."
They took his driver's license
away after he drove that Ford
truck through the plate glass win-
dow of Abernathy's Hardware. He
said later he Just wanted to pick
up a keg of nails.
John David Booker took to
riding his horse to town. I've seen
old Dillon tied to a parking meter
outside of Gene's Barber Shop
lots of times. Our town was dry. If
a body was a mind to take a legal
drink, he had to ride out to the
county line. But Nicky Joe al-
lowed that you could "get your
ears lowered at Gene's and you
could also get some of that spe-
cial tonic that he kept in the back
room, if you get my drift."
I didn't know nothing about
any special tonic in the back
room, but I know that Mr. Booker
got his hair cut more often than
anybody else in town.
He wouldn't even tie Dillon
when he'd come to Woodrow Ken-
non's Mercantile, Drygoods and
Grocery Store. He'd just trail the
reins over by the side of the
porch, that horse wasn't going
anywhere without J.D. Mr. Book-
er would buy a sack of Bull Dur-
ham, gather up the reins, throw a
long leg over the saddle and with-
out a word start building a
smoke. Horse and rider would
mosey off, Dillon just seemed to
know where J.D. wanted to go
* Ed and Rosie's Roadside Bar
and Lounge was located over by
Big Sandy. You can understand
now why I didn't actually see the
fight. I wasn't old enough nor
have I ever been tough enough
to step inside at Ed and Rosie's.
Troy, Jr. saw the whole thing. He
said J.D. first got upset 'cause
Lefty Wiggleton and the band
wouldn't play "Honky Tonk An-
gels." He was in a foul mood be-
fore the pool game even started.
Troy wisely backed over in
the comer beside big Hoss Rath-
burn. He said he saw it coming.
Roy McSpadden claimed J.D. had
scratched on the nine ball. J.D.
thought Arthur had lifted the ta-
ble. The whole thing might have
passed except Roy made some
comment about J.D. getting on
his old nag out front and riding
off into the -
Roy couldn't finish his
thought. He was stretched out on
the green felt table trying to di-
gest a cue ball sandwich. Folks,
half the people in Big Sandy are
named McSpadden. I think Rosie
is sister to most of them. Arthur
hit J.D. up side the head with a
pool stick. Robbie Joe kicked him
in the leg. J.D. went down, but he
came up swinging a bar stool.
Bottles started flying. Ed, ignor-
ing the fight, was trying to save
his new flashing neon Hamm's
beer sign. Lefty and the boys
broke into the Al Dexter classic
"Pistol Packin' Mama."
Troy, Jr. said J.D. fought like
a madman. But there were Just
too many McSpaddens.. They
thumped him pretty gobd,
stepped on his hat and threw
him, semi-conscious out the

door of Ed and Rosie's Roadside
Bar and Lounge at full gallop.
J.D. was swinging a baseball bat.
Roy was the first to go down.
Then Arthur. Dillon bit Rosie just
above her tattoo. Folks, according
to Troy, the McSpaddens exited
the bar through doors, windows
and walls. Lefty started singing
what little he knew of "Honky

for his hat, threw the Louisville

Left Hands Are Useless Except to Complete the Set of Two
LEFT HANDS ARE useless to
someone who is right-handed.
They are just. so much excess
baggage. They are put on our
arms backwards. It takes an im-
age in a mirror to determine
which direction they should go.
Nothing is made for the com-
venience of left-handed people.
Nothing in this world. Worse still
nothing is made convenient for
those of who are born right-
handed and by some quirk of fate
have that right hand short cir-
There is nothing more pitiful
than a right. handed person who
has been forced into involuntary
left handedness. He's useless.
He's a mere shell of what he for-
merly was, and bumbles around
like a blind man in the dark. The
only difference is that the blind
man is accustomed to being in
the dark and the right-handed
person has had a state of unnat-
uralness thrust upon him.
THAT HAS BEEN my state
all week and will probable be my
condition for the next two or
three weeks to come.
I had my right hand tended
to by one of Bay Memorial's finest
surgeons last Thursday morning
and am currently using the hunt
and peck system on the computer
keyboard with my remaining ap-
pendage which is virtually use-
If I had my choice, I would be
without the use of my right eye
rather than have to go through
the frustrations of having to de-
pend solely on my left hand.
I never knew it could be so,
frustrating to try and type a "p"
and end up with a ";", or an "o",or
maybe a "[". As you know, a "p" is
right-handed letter on the key-
board. It's one of the little finger
keys of the right hand. Try cross-
ing a left finger over into unfamil-
iar territory and see what a mess
you can get into. The left hand
just doesn't know where to go.
WITH ALL OF THE best in-
tentions, I sat down to the "Mac"
the other day to test being a
southpaw, although involuntarily.
Mind you I'm not the swiftest guy
in the world on the "Mac". Some-
times they seem to have a mind
of their own and won't give an
inch to accommodate someone
like me who addresses it like
some grandparent playing a nin-
tendo game or such.
Since our "Macs" are espe-
cially programmed for the sophis-
ticated job of producing a news-
paper, they expect to receive
some respect from their opera-
tors. They are accustomed to be-
ing handled by someone who
knows what they are doing, so,
when someone like me comes
along, they have no mercy or
sympathy that my right hand is
incapacitated for whatever rea-
The "Mouse" of the machine
is even on the right side, so I
keep moving it the opposite direc-
tion of where it should go. And
when your "Mouse" moves in the
wrong direction, you are in trou-

this hunt and peck, one handed
method, so give me a break.
I HAD THIS carpal tunnel
procedure on my right wrist, see,
and it has put it out of commis-
sion for a while.
It affects not only my typeset-
ting, in which everything is back-
wards, it affects other parts of my
life as well.
Ever try combing your hair
with your left hand, especially the
right side of your head. I didn't
know combing hair could be so
Of course I can imagine how
complicated it is for those who
have no hair.
Put a sock on your right foot
in less than 30 minutes, if you
can. Button a shirt collar with
one hand, or zip up your pants.
One of the hardest things to
do is to take a shower and wash
under your left armpit, or dry off
your right side.
You just can't imagine how
hard it is to chase a fork-full of
peas across your plate without a
piece of bread there to stop them
and hem them up. Cutting a
piece of meat is a major opera-
tion. You have to pick up the
whole piece and bite off a chunk.
I DIDN'T REALIZE how diffi-
cult it was going to be for the
next two or three weeks until I
got in my car for the first time.
The key is on the right side of the
steering wheel. How do I do this?
I figured out a formula for start-
ing the car which involved laying
down in the seat, reaching
around the steering wheel and
giving the starter a twist.
I can't mow the lawn or pull
weeds very easy, all of which is a
Brushing teeth with my left
hand leaves me with half brushed

I Love My Truck
For several years I have wanted a pickup truck., Not just any
kind of truck; I've wanted a full-size, long-bed, V8 engine, attrac-
tive looking truck-with all the extras, like power steering, tilt
wheel, cruise control, a good sound system and all the other ex-
tras that we normally think of when we want a car. But, as we all
know, trucks like that are expensive and that's the main.reason I
haven't bought one before now.
My love affair with trucks is a relatively recent one, dating
back about 10 years. Before that I wasn't particularly fond of
trucks and for some very good reasons. Let me explain.
My daddy owned a pickup truck since the first day I can re-
member and long before that. Trucks today are just a convenient
way of traveling, but when I was a young man they stood for two
things; work and more work! A truck was also a symbol of "coun-
try folks." I must admit that.I felt a bit inadequate, riding around
in a beat-up truck while everyone around us was driving shiny
Later, when I was in high school, my next oldest brother went
to work and the first thing he did was buy a truck. Admittedly, it
was customized, but it was still a truck. It was also red as blood.
Shortly after entering high school, I decided I didn't want to
be labeled a "country" boy, so I started doing everything I could -
and my folks could afford to shed that image. And, I was
coming along pretty well until it came time for me to drive some-
where, like on a .date. For instance, let me tell you what hap-
pened the first time I had a date and had to drive my brother's
Myrtle Bailey was a cheerleader, one of the smartest girls in
our school and was as beautiful as any girl who ever said, '"Two
bits, four bits." I still don't know how I did it, but I managed to
get a date with her. No double-date; just Myrtle and "' 4.
By this time my brother had bought a second vehicle an 4 it
was a car. I made the date with Myrtle three weeks ih advance so
I would be sure to have the car to drive because I certainly want-
ed to impress Myrtle and picking her up in a pickup wasn't the
most fashionable move to make in those days. At least I didn't
I don't remember what happened, but something silly came
up and at the last minute the car was taken' and I had to drive
my brother's red pickup on my date with Myrtle. If I remember
right, someone had to go to the hospital or something insignifi-
cant like that. Anyway, I was embarrassed to no end.
At the time I thought it was the worst thing that could hap-
pen, but I was wrong. The worst thing happened on the way
-home when r ran out of gas and had to walk three miles in a
blinding blizzard to a phone and call my mother to bring me
some gas. I was lucky we had a phone and Myrtle had a dime,
but I wasn't so lucky by the time I got Myrtle home.
Her mother met us at the door and told me her father was
ready to kill me. I hoped he would. When they finally talked him
out of shooting me I tried to borrow the gun and shoot myself,
and would have if Myrtle hadn't promised never to breathe a
word about what happened at school.
So you can see why my love affair with trucks is a little late
coming in my life. I now realize that there's nothing that can take
the place of a truck, when you need one. Also, today trucks have
all the extras that cars have and ride just as well.
Recently I decided if I was ever going to own a truck I had
better buy one soon, so I took the plunge. I picked out one that
was just what I wanted and, at the urging of my wife, bought it.
You must believe that I am humbly grateful to be able to buy
that truck and I am not one to "flaunt" anything, not that I have
anything to flaunt. But I want everyone to know that it was my
brother who put the "I LOVE (with a heart) MY TRUCK" sign on
the front of my new truck. And he put super glue and bolts to
hold it down.
He did it because he knows how much I detest those signs.
He doesn't like them either, so I'm going to put two on his car;
one on the front and one on the back. They will say, "I (With a
heart) LOVE NEW YORK."
That should get his goat!

.r CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
of the Esophagus
Due to Batteries
S. Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Children are always swallowing things to which they should not
have access, and certainly should not have in their mouths. We no
longer use lye to clean because there are better products, but main-
ly because lye bums in children caused so much damage.
With lye generally no longer a problem, most corrosive burns of
the esophagus are now caused by batteries.
A relatively new concern about things children put in their
mouths and swallow are the small button batteries used to operate
hearing aids, cameras, watches and electronic controls. Hearing
aids are the source of most of these ingestions. At times, children
have removed the batteries from their own hearing aids and swal-
lowed them. Battery compartments need to be child proofed even if
this means, taping them closed.
The composition of small batteries varies and may be manga-
nese dioxide, zinc/air, mercuric oxide, silver oxide or lithium. These
alkaline batteries may cause corrosive damage in the esophagus or
intestine (if lodged there), and may fragment with the release of tox-
ic products as they move along in the digestive tract. Elevated blood
levels of mercury can cause problems as can nickel sensitivity. In-
testinal bleeding and perforation may occur.
When corrosive damage occurs in the esophagus, this causes
scarring and narrowing of the digestive tract and often requires re-
peated dilatations and long term care. To prevent the damage, an
effort is made to remove any lodged batteries by endoscopic instru-
ments in the hands of an ENT specialist. Removal can be effective if
you know a child swallowed a battery, but sometimes you do not
know the battery is there until after the damage has been done. If
your child swallows a battery, do not induce vomiting. Your doctor
will need to ascertain where the battery is and then decide what
needs to be done.
Internal burns with resulting damage are much better prevent-
ed than treated. All children are inquisitive and young children re-
quire constant supervision. One should not leave a one to two year
old child to entertain himself unless he is being constantly ob-

WHY A SPACE
A primary tooth (sometimes
called a "baby" tooth), normally
stays in place until the perma-
nent tooth is ready to replace it.
If your child's tooth is lost too
son, your dentist may recom-
mend inserting a "space main-
tainer" to hold the space open
until the permanent tooth can
.rupt in the proper position.
If a space. maintainer is not
used, your child can have a
number of problems. Over a pe-
riod of time, the teeth on either
side often drift into the empty
space. Then, when it is time for
the permanent tooth to come in,
there is not enough room. This
is one cause of malocclusion or
"crooked teeth". If teeth drift and
become crooked, plaque will be
hard to remove. This can result
in severe tooth decay, and will
contribute to periodontal (gum)
Prevention of malocclusion
caused by early loss of a pri-
mary tooth is simple. On the oth-
er hand, if nothing is done to
maintain the open space, the re-
sulting crooked teeth could lead
to more complicated and expen-
sive orthodontic treatment.

vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Explorers' Mail Slow & Erratic Between Colony and Spain
This is the fourth in a series of articles presented
by the St Joseph Historical Society.
From Old Spain to New Spain by ship, then by
messenger either on foot or horseback (depending on
one's location) a letter could take up to three to six
months to reach its destination.
The following excerpts from copies of letters from
the files of Wayne Childers will give an insight to the
thoughts, happenings, and surroundings of how the
Spanish sailors coped with their maritime life. Ade-
quate provisions were provided at the time of depar-
ture but soon supplies would run short. Natural dis-
advantages, disease, insects, and bad water all
played their .part in leading to new discoveries -
some good, some bad.
September 22, 1701
Excellent Senor Senor, I give an account to
Your Excellency, that thus having departed from this
port on the 26th day of June, I anchored in the bay
of Santa Maria de Galve on the 13th day of the fol-
lowing month. As soon as I arrived, the provisions
were disembarked and the payments made to all the
troops of the Presidios in the fashion prescribed by
Your Excellency, in which I was ordered to by the
document which had been brought. Likewise, I ar-
ranged the assembling of the felucca which had been
transported In quarters, until it was finished and in
the water and masted. I assure Your Excellency, that
the cited vessel had all that was necessary for its de-
parture...........procedures carried out, those which I
had assigned them to do, so that knowledgeable per-
sons would make that determination. They placed
in appropriate fashion, a hospital for the cure of the
sick. For this reason, they had brought from this
port, two surgeons, who remain hopeful that Your
Excellency will relieve them on another occa-
sion........garrison of 25 men on the Mobila River.
Having done the referred to, and placed the Cap-
tain, Don Joseph de Robles y Morales, in possession
of his company, he embarked with me to the Capi-
tan, Phelipe Zerrano and left from the Bay of Santa
Maria de Galve with this storeship and bilander, San
Joachin, for the Bay Names San Joseph. After four
days of sailing, we entered there with the vessels
finding in all its channel a depth of 7, 6 and 5 bras-
sas at the least. Where the anchorage is, the bottom
is of mud (lama) and is near to land. The Channel is
a long rhusket shot wide apd of little variance for
which reason, notwithstanding, the mouth is wider
than the one named Santa Maria de Galve. Thus it Is
only capable of anchoring large vessels in the named
channel, where they are able to enter. This is as
close to land as I came. It was manifest that the rest
of its shallow bottom, it was impossible for any ves-
sel to enter since it would have to do so necessarily
by the channel and this was near to land which
would bring it to the referred to spot. The fortifica-
tion which they might build, on the other hand,
would guard and defend the entrance and the an-
chorage. This is notwithstanding that this area is
frequently inundated in the time of the waters, this
fact does not render it incapable of being fortified.
Also, neither does the fact that there is no water to
be had except from reservoirs, for which reason the
troops which reconnoitered it became sick.
The part which lies opposite to the mouth, how-
ever, is good territory for farming as it has a river of
very good water and four creeks. It also has an
abundance of hunting grounds for deer and buffalo.
[Description of the Buffalo by Father Antonio de San
Buena Ventura y Olivars In 1709--The buffalo is
unique among the wild animals of this land. Its head
is of greater size that that of a bull of Castile. Howev-
er, it looks something like one of these Spanish
bulls. The eyes are very black and almost covered by
its wool and the forelock which is very thick. It has a
head in the fashion of a he-goat. The horns are very
-' small ari( short. The back has a huge hump which
rises ut from its neck until it crooks. This hump
covers Aix ribs. The hide is fleecy like that of a sheep
but is black or dark brown. The tail is like that of a
goat. It is an animal that is so savage looking that
there's not found another one that is uglier in all
this land. It is very swift and agile but has little en-
durance. It quickly wears itself out and has such lit-
tle heart and courage and is so choleric, that on per-
ceiving itself to be wounded even if it is in its vital
organs, that in a short while it bleeds from the
mouth. Thern it loses its strength and falls to the
ground. Its meat resembles the meat of the Castilian
cattle but has a more excellent flavor and tender-
I arranged to send the .infantry to this place to
obtain their food, leaving the outpost where it was
with four men and exchanging these during the
weeks with the launch or felucca which they have.
Having disembarked the provisions and paid the
convicts (Presidiarios), I departed from said bay for
the Bay of Carlos..... ...............
.................the Commandant, Monsiur Velila has
charged me to tell you that he begs Your Excellency,
that you dispatch said pink as fast as possible so
that he can make his return voyage before the rigors
of the north winds are visited on this Gulf. For this
end, if Your Excellency is so disposed, you would
command to the Governor and Royal Officials of this
port, that they shall receive the military equipment
which he brings, swiftly; so that he attains his un-
loading. This is as much as I was asked to give an
account of to Your Excellency, whose Excellent Per-
son Our Lord guard those many years which I have
On board this storeship, San Bernardo and Sep-
tember 22 of 1701.
*In the year 1703 Spanish Chacato Indians were
hunting these buffalo around St. Joseph Bay. A sol-
dier, Joseph Belinda, was sent over from Mobila, to
talk and convince them to move to that area. This is

Duke of Jovenazo, Don Gabriel Corada, Don Jo-
seph Garro, Don Juan de Castro, Don Alonso Carne-
The governor of the Florida in the two letters at-
tached of the 18th of October of 1700 and the 10th
of March of this year which were received lately,
gives an account in the first of having helped the
Presidio of Santa Maria de Galve with those provi-
sions he was able to. Given the need for maize which
it still suffered, he offered to continue it and upon it
he might enlarge it for them. In the second, he re-
ferred that the Commandant of the referred to Presi-
dio of Santa Maria de Galve had advised him that he
had sent by order of the Viceroy of the New Spain,
the engineer, Don Juan de Siscara with 25 men and
the necessary military equipment in a bilander to
place an outpost (vigia) on the Bay of San Joseph.
(This Bay) is in the middle of the coast between San-
ta -Maria de Galve and San Luis de Apalache, which
are some seventy leagues from one to another. It is a
place that would not be good to have occupied by
foreigners. If they occupied it, it would be difficult to
supply those two fortresses by sea and impossible by
land. He discussed for this reason, the importance of
occupying the referred to Bay of the Espiritu Santo
and placing there some fortification before some for-
eigners do. This is because that those that may fol-
low them may then be possessors of all the Gulf.
This will occasion such a grave danger to our fleets
and vessels that they go to search the Sound for a
place to disembark. And this Governor says that
from the conferences and conversations that he has
had with knowledgeable persons concerning where
to place these two forts in the Bays of Santa Maria
de Galve and Espiritu Santo, [both of these are able
to admit large vessels] such that all the Gulf of Mexi-
co shall remain secure...........
......... Because it is appropriate, the Junta
placed these letters in the Royal Hands of Your Ma-
jesty. Your Majesty shall order that which pleases
him, Madrid, November, 1701.

The Aloha State
Our fiftieth state, Hawaii is
the 'Aloha State'. This friendly
greeting means many things: I
love you, good-bye, and hello,
among other things. This week,
the third grades have studied Ha-
waii in social studies. We've even
gone there every day in our imagi-
nation. One second grader asked
his teacher, "Are the third graders
really going to Hawaii this week?"
We did and studied their varied
cultures, geography, part of their
history, the hula, their language,
and many more interesting
things. We made a lei and had a
visitor come and speak to the
classes. Mrs. Pam Sumner, com-
plete in Hawaiian garb, came and
shared her vacation memories
with us. Aloha.
