Disaster Crews Practice State-wide Training

Florida's disaster team was gearing up for
the hurricane season last week end. As a re-
minder of the seriousness of their exercise, a
tropical disturbance was churning up in the
Gulf of Mexico at the same time.
Among the 60 counties going through a dry


run of a disaster .and getting instructions about
what to do from video tapes and lectures, was
Gulf County with its disaster preparedness di-
rector, Larry Wells.
Wells put the disaster team for Gulf County
through a mock disaster, tested the rescue ve-

hicles and emergency communications system
and designated shelters for the entire county.
The shocker in the emergency preparedness
was the revelation that there are only two ap-
proved emergency shelters in Gulf County with
a capacity for 200 people. "In the past, we have
used the Courthouse here in Port St. Joe, the

buildings. During the winter, we had an evalu-
ation done on buildings in Gulf County and
found that only two, the Wewahitchka Elemen-
tary and Wewahitchka High School commons
areas were the only buildings in the County ap-
proved as shelters from a hurricane," Wells
He also pointed out, 'The reason for this
designation was because of the things learned
from "Hugo" in South Carolina a couple of
years ago. Rising water is a wrecker of build-
ings and rising water in low Gulf County would
be a disaster if people were still here when a
hurricane struck."
"Let's not confuse a storm with a hurri-
cane," Wells said. "Storms are inconvenient.

Hurricanes are deadly."
Working on the theory that practice makes
perfect, the week end exercise involved the vol-
unteer disaster and communication people, po-
lice departments, Sheriffs department, ambu-
lance service, fire departments, hospital
officials and shelter people.
A mock disaster situation was arranged in
which a saboteur entered the water treatment
plant and broke a valve off a chlorine tank,
starting a gas leak which allegedly threatened
Arizona Chemical, St. Joe Forest Products
Company and part of North Port St. Joe with
the leaking gas fumes. A mock evacuation of
the gas-threatened area was initiated and car-
ried out by those participating in the exercise.
Disaster communications were set up and
tested which included a "worst case" situation
in which information will be relayed and re-
ceived by area ham radio operators.
In case of an emergency the Gulf County
disaster operations headquarters will be in the
County Commission Meeting Room at the rear
of the Courthouse building complex. The room
is equipped with an emergency telephone sys-
tem, short wave radios, police communication,
including the paging system for the ambulance
services in the county, all fire departments, and
law enforcement communications. The building
is also equipped with an emergency power gen-
erator, which is tested once a month.
'"We don't want to see a hurricane," Wells
said, "But if it comes, I feel we are trained and
our workers know what to do."

"I appreciate the support the

board has accomplished a great

City Preparing Fireworks Display

Saturday is July Fourth and the City of Port St. Joe will
observe the occasion in time-honored fashion. with a giant
fireworks display in the First Union Bank Park adjacent to St.
Joseph Bay.
For the past several years, the City has been providing a
professional fireworks display to mark the occasion of Inde-
pendence Day and each year the display has become larger
and draws huge crowds from all over the county. Crowds fill
the park, to get a ring-side seat for the display and on-lookers
line Highway 98 all the way to the south City Limits. Boaters
even get in position for an unobstructed view of the activities

in the Bay, just off-shore.
VFW Post 10069 will operate a refreshment stand at the
display this year, offering hot dogs, hamburgers, cold drinks
and snacks.
The display will begin Saturday night, at first dark, with
the pyrotechnics being set off by members of the Fire Depart-
ment. The booming display will be aimed 'out over the Bay to
reduce the danger from falling particles. A fence will be set up
to keep spectators at a safe distance.
Admission is free and the City invites everyone to come
help celebrate Independence Day in the old fashioned way.

Independence. We've had it so long, we take it for granted.
But it isn't the sort of thing you can take for granted. One must
work at it, constantly, to maintain freedom and what it offers us.
Those who signed that Declaration more than 200 years ago,
became instant criminals. They were revolutionaries. They were
heroes to the persecuted and outlaws to those who had it easy
and didn't want the status quo disturbed.
Unlike most of the revolutionaries in the world today, there
wasn't some ambitious politician waiting backstage to assume
power when the zealots of freedom toppled the present rulers
from the house of government.
Have you ever wondered just how close we came to remain-
ing a colony of England? But for a few incidents which worked in
the favor of the colonists, we would be also unduly worried over
the family affairs of Di and Charles. Freedom delivered us from
This nation has been through tougher circumstances than
the one with the Revolutionary War, gaining our independence
from the greatest and most powerful nation on earth at that
time. There have been other wars, of a world-wide nature, a civil
war, depression, disease, and now, with six percent of the
world's population, we are stuck with being the "Big Brother" to
the World. That's quite a responsibility for so few people
We have assumed the position formerly held by England at
the time of the Revolutionary War. We're the most powerful and
most influential nation on earth. We now have world-wide re-
sponsibilities, whether we want them or not.
The Operation Desert Storm, in which we were involved at In-
dependence Day last year, is a good example of both responsibil-
ity and power. We think the quality which makes our nation
great, is our willingness to accept our responsibilities of leader-
ship. There are others willing to accept that role, with other Ide-
as about freedom. Turn your attention for a moment, or allow
those forces power and freedom could die. .. overnight!

There are a host of important questions before us today.
Questions which will determine how we will live for the foreseea-
ble future and which will affect our lives. Let's look at one or
SHUTTING DOWN state funded operations if a budget isn't
approved by July 1 is one thing. Is this a bluff or what? We tend
to believe it is either a bluff or power politics at their worst. Why
should it be any harder to pay for any services tomorrow than it
is today. They are all operating-maybe at reduced levels,' but
operating-today. They should operate at the same level tomor-
: LOTTERY-We read where the lottery is one of the non-
essential operations to be shut down. We never approved of the
lottery from the word "go". However, we're curious. It was our
understanding the lottery was self-sustaining. Have we been lied
to again? Are taxes being used to finance that boon-doggle
which was to be the savior of the school system? The lottery
might just be the root cause of our financial problems.
THE SUPREME Court has declared once again that our na-
tion is becoming a God-less nation. Not only can't we decide
whether or not to have a prayer at the next graduation exercis-
es, we have broken the law if we do. Have the nine Justices
nothing better to do with their time?
Here we are observing our Independence Day this very week.
Our forefathers wrote that Constitution the Supreme Court is
trying so hard to protect, along with the rights of every individu-
al who has an original idea. Those same forefathers gave God
the credit for our nation and pledged to honor God and use the
Bible as a pattern for man's freedom. Where's the consistency?
We'll tell you, the decisions of the Supreme Court have tram-
pled on our rights, mightily. We just might want to offer a prayer
of thankfulness that our grandchildren completed school at the
next graduation exercise. We'll just have to break the law.
On the other hand, the Court has given protection to those
people who choose to damage their health, or bring on an early
death, by smoking. Their survivors can sue the tobacco compa-
nies for causing a death they freely chose. Talk about a foolish
AND LAST, THERE IS the matter of Ross Perot. The news
media has been trying to pin him down to answer some question
about just what his position is and he's slicker than a Brother's
River eel, at sneaking by the plain answers.
Perot comes over real good as a "Good Ole Boy" but how do
you Justify calling a Texas billionaire a "Good Ole Boy"?
We have come to the conclusion that Ross Perot is the "Alge-
bra Candidate". You know, the candidate of unknown quantity.

cle Ed Ramsey dying last week
brought to mind the story of my
grandmother, her three boys and
five daughters, and welfare.
My grandmother lived in our
house as long as we lived in Okla-
homa, until I was 13 years of age
so I knew her pretty well. She
sent us boys out in the spring to
pick "poke" greens, she lined us
up and organized us in the pro-
duction of a garden in the vacant
lots on both sides of our house,
she sent us under the house to
'spread out the potato crop so it
wouldn't rot before we could eat
it, she kept the pickling crock of
earthernware at the back of the
house, she made the preserves
out of little tomatoes which we all
us boys liked and made the pies
out of the flat, white squash.
I knew her pretty well.

Rhinehart, Missouri and Grandpa
worked in the open pit coal mines
of Missouri.
Like I said, they had eight
children. Sometime about 1912
or 13, Grandpa was injured with
a blow to the head by a pick-axe
on the job. Complications set in
and Grandpa died of the influen-
za, leaving Grandma to fend for
herself and eight small children.
There was no welfare in those
days; no social security; no rent
assistance; no energy assistance
programs, no commodities and

no food stamps.
Today, Grandma would have
qualified as an indigent, at the
mercy of the world.
Grandma didn't have any
particular skills and she had no
money put away for a rainy day.
There was no aid to dependent
children or free lunches at
school. She was destitute with

It wasn't a very good start for

small oil boom town about 50
miles southwest of Tulsa, Oklaho-
ma, where there was work. It
wasn't too far away, so she load-
ed her kids on the train, joined
two sisters and a brother, and
went to the oil boom town shortly
after Grandpa died.
After she got there, she got a
job operating a rooming and
boarding house. Daddy and Uncle
Ed and Uncle Raymond each had
a shoe shine box and they went
to work, too. Like the garden,
when Grandma lived in our
house, she lined those kids up
with jobs they could do and they
went to work.
A few years later, she was
married again to a man I never
knew nor ever heard much about.
I figured he must be the bravest
or the most foolish man in the
world, to marry a woman with
eight kids.
Another son was born and
shortly afterward, Grandma was

single again. The marriage didn't
work out.
Still no government help. No
welfare. No food stamps. No so-'
cial security. No nothing But the
whole family worked and they got
along pretty well.
The girls all married and the
men all started families of their
own, after awhile. But, while they
were growing up, Grandma kept
them busy and she kept busy.

THERE WAS NO question
about whether or not we would
plant a garden in the spring. The
only question was, what will we
grow this year?
We kept a cow for milk, a pig
for killing in the fall and chickens
for fryers and eggs. We pulled the
ragweeds which grew in the edge
of the garden and fed them to the
pig. We went across the street to
the cotton gin and hauled in cot-
ton hulls to feed the cow and
store pumpkins and sweet pota-

toes in for the winter.
Grandma was ingenious.
That was the kind of "roots"
Uncle Ed and Daddy came from.
They learned at an early age to
make it on their own or it
wouldn't be made.
My other set of grandparents
owned a cotton farm in northwest
Texas, so they were too far away
to give us any help or guidance.
When I was born, the small
town was beginning to dry up,
along with the oil field which
spawned it.
There was no extra money
floating around, you can be sure.
To live in a dying oil boom town
during a nationwide depression
called for the most ingenuity one
could muster to keep things go-
ing. I never knew we were having
it hard. As is always the case,
there was work for those willing
to work.
I wonder how Grandma
would have fared under the wel-
fare program of today?

Shoes Have Become ,

A Problem...
A few months ago I wrote an article about shoes that squeak. I
was reminded of squeaking shoes one Sunday when our preacher
mentioned them in his sermon. He said something to the effect that
he could remember when a new pair of shoes squeaked when you
first walked in them. That statement immediately brought back
memories of my childhood. I, like our preacher, am from the South
where a new pair of shoes didn't have to fit a young man in those
days; being cl9se was good enough.
I'm not blaming our preacher, nor does this article have any-
thing to do with shoes that squeak, but since that Sunday I have
had a terrible time getting shoes to feel comfortable on my feet.
(Well, where else would I wear a pair of shoes, pray tell?)
It all started a few days after Rev. Baxter's sermon about
squeaking shoes. There appeared to be an elongated knot or ball
under my left foot between my instep and toes. At first I thought my
sock had balled up on me, so I took off my shoe and pulled my sock
up. That didn't help the problem so I checked my shoe.
My inspection revealed nothing and the uncomfortable feeling
persisted, so after a few days I decided it was time for a new pair of
shoes; work shoes. I had complained so much that my wife told me,
"Buy some good shoes. Spend more than $14.95 on some and they
will last more than 3 months. There's no wonder your feet hurt!"
I promised I would do that very thing. My first stop was Payless
Shoes (that name sounds good to me) where I found a variety of
good-looking shoes, but nothing that was comfortable. My next stop
was the Army-Navy Surplus Store where I found a Jew pairs of
boots that were comfortable, but extremely hot. They were lace.-up
army boots and cost almost $50. I passed because I didn't wanrit to
spend that much time lacing up boots each morning. ,
I looked at walking shoes, tennis shoes, hiking boots, loafers
and dress shoes, but could find nothing that was suitable for work-
ing shoes. Finally in desperation and with pain that brought tears
to my eyes with each step, I went to a place that sold the ultimate
in comfort and durability in work and casual shoes. The shoes were
called "Rockports." My hand was shaking so badly I could hardly
write the check and a couple of teardrops stained the check as I
handed it to the man. For that price; they had better be comforta-
ble, I thought.
For the first few days I thought my money was well spent. After
about a week, however, the ridge reappeared on my left foot, in the
'saine place. I fhen started an intense investigation checking every-
thing I did that might cause this irritation.
My final analysis was that pressing in on the clutch of my truck
was causing my discomfort. Also, I decided, the Rockport work
boots were too narrow, aggravating the problem so I gave the new
boots to my son and bought another pair of expensive boots made
especially for working. I also pressed the clutch with my right foot
from that day forth. The knot and pain persisted, however, and
soon spread to my dress shoes, slippers and, believe it or not, to my
6-year-old tennis shoes; shoes that never hurt me even when I had
an in-grown toenail.
I did discover that I had one pair of shoes that didn't hurt me.
My golf shoes. I wore them everywhere for a while, but it was un-
comfortable walking down the street in them and often times people
didn't want me coming in their home with them on.
Finally, in desperation, I bought a new truck with an automatic
transmission and for Father's Day my family gave me a pair of deck
shoes. The knot is still there arid the pain persists.
... My question is this: Should I just quit work and play golf every'

Gulf Follies Revue
Is "Off the Ground"
The Port St. Joe Rotary Club
and the Association for Retarded
Citizens are pooling their efforts
to Jointly sponsor the first edition
of the Gulf Follies Revue variety
show this fall. The purpose of the
show is to raise funds for local
charitable programs, featuring lo-
cal talent.
Chaired by George Whiting of
the Rotary Club, the event is "off
the ground," with committee
chairmen appointed. Whiting said
that their goal is to showcase lo-
cal talent in an evening of cultu-
ral family, entertainment. This
year's Follies Revue will feature
singers, dancers, magicians, co-
medians, musicians and any oth-
er talent that is available
Volunteers are needed to
serve on various committees. For

Whiting or Dianna Harrison at

week, and one of the wanted men
has been arrested on charges of
arson of a structure. 'i
Sheriff Al Harrison said his
department has arrested William
Raffield, 19, Saturday, and filed
the charges against him for the
April 17 burning of a houseboat
owned by Fairo Lee Aman, Jr.
The houseboat was tied up at
Kirkland's landing at White City
at the time of the fire.
Warrants have also been is-
sued for James Edward Raker,
28, a resident of Maryland, also
charged with burning the house-
The boat was a total loss
from the fire.
Aman was on community
control release from Florida State
Prison at the time of the fire. He
was supposed to be at the house-
boat under his community con-
trol sentence when the fire broke
out, but he was not. Aman has
since been picked up and sent to
state prison for violation of his
community control.
Raffield has been conditional-
ly released from Gulf County jail
following his arrest.

"Main Street" is more a state
of mind than it is bricks and mor-
tar. But it is an organized state of
mind. Designed to rekindle a
sense of pride in the home town
setting, emphasizing the good
and changing the bad, the deci-
sion to try for membership grew
out of a' recent economic survey
conducted by the Chamber of
Commerce in which it was
learned local people deserted
their home town mostly because
of the way they were treated, [tak-
en for granted] appearances of lo-
cal businesses, and choice.
"Main Street" is not a grant
program, but rather is a technical
assistance program. "Main Street"
cities receive up to three years of
technical assistance from its
agency. It is a self-help program

in which small but positive im-
provements are made.
"Main Street" is a communi-
ty-wide revitalization designed to
emphasize local ownership, per-
sonal service and a sense of com-
munity among the entire popula-
tion. Accomplishments of "Main
Street" are accompanied by a
sense of 'we did it!'
Florida Main Street was ini-
tiated in 1985 and is adminis-
tered by the Bureau of Historic

of State.
Its purpose is to build a posi-

local businesses, save tax dollars
by stopping erosion of valuations,

To illustrate how important
the "Main Street" membership is,
it provides tremendous influence
for the approval of grants or gov-

quested, because it shows the
community is interested enough
in its Improvement to so some-
thing for themselves.

MFC Is Only
No Net Fishing
In last week's edition of.
The Star, a story released by,
the Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion stated that recreational
net fishermen would no longer
be allowed to use their gill nets
to fish for mullet in Bay waters.,
Recreational fishermen
were alarmed over the news
and asked that the story be ver-
ified. The Star has verified the.
story with a Mr. Laguna in the.
MFC office in Tallahassee. The
story should have read that the
recreational fishermen would
no longer be able to use their
gill nets in taking mullet... .
The ruling will be the sub-.
ject of a public hearing in St.-
Augustine on August 12 from
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the.
Ponce de Leon Hotel.
While recreational fisher-
men may still use their gill
nets now, they may not be able
to for very much longer.

In March, 1992, the government established new tables for
withholding taxes from an employee's paycheck. Married
couples will see their after-tax paycheck increase up to
$345.00 annually, while single people will see after-tax pay go
up by as much as $172.00 annually.
Taxes themselves are not reduced therefore, many people
who normally receive a refund when filing taxes will be pay-
ing money in for 1992.
We urge you to make an appointment with our office to see if
you need to have more money withheld from your regular
paycheck!! It is much better to be safe, than to end up owing
taxes on April 15.

Delicious Old-Fashioned Recipes

Have you noticed how many
recipes are called "old-fashioned,"
"classic" and "traditional?" Why
are these words chosen to entice?
It seems that no matter how
high-tech food becomes or how
many substitutions can be made,
most people prefer the classics for
good eating.
Time-honored baked goods,
all made with real, fresh ingre-
dients, are the most popular. Tra-
ditional favorites like Buttery
Sugar Cookies, Fabulous Scotch-
ies and Country Lemon Squares
are toted on picnics and served at
cookouts year after year simply
because they taste so great.
Buttery Sugar Cookies are
true old-fashioned cookies made
with only a few simple ingre-
dients. These cookies are best
when real butter is used, though
margarine can be substituted.
Prepare the dough in advance

Fabulous Scotchies have a
chewy brownie texture and rich
butterscotch flavor. Vary the nut-
ty; taste by substituting different
nuts toasted almonds, cash-
ews ,or pecans. Toasting nuts in

Country Lemon Squares,
ideal for taking along in their
baking pan on picnics, have fine-
ly chopped pecans in the crust.

As long as you have lemons
hand, why not squeeze some

fresh lemonade, an old-fashioned
summer thirst quencher? Con-
trary to popular belief, making
real lemonade with fresh lemon
juice, water and sugar isn't much
more work than stirring up a
batch of instant, and the taste
can't be beat.

*lf your car overheats, park by'
the side of the roa d turn it

*Quality jumper cables should
be at least 12 feet long to
reach from car to car in odd lo-
cations and should be 8-gauge
or better. The longer the cable,
the heavier (lower number) it
should be.
*Despite modern anti-theft de-
vices the best advice is still the
oldest: Lock your car, close all
the windows, and take the key
with you. Many cars are stolen
with the keys right in the igni-
*Before you take to the road
this summer, safety experts
recommend practice changing
a tire, if you haven't changed
one lately. If a tire goes flat in a
,sparsely populated area and
you have to do the job yourself,
you'll be ready.
*If you hear your car letting out
a long "sigh" after the engine is
shut off, the problem may be
steam escaping past the radia-
tor cap due to poor fit and a
worn gasket.

Dan Christie has a spare acre at his home located at Sim-
mons Bayou and on this acre he has some of the lushest, green-
est, blueberry bushes growing you have ever seen. "Dan's Little
Acre," is rewarding him with a bumper crop this year, which he
opens to the U-Pick trade.
Dan says he visits the field daily and is constantly retrieving
notes, money, and other signs that people have come in and
* picked some of his berries and either left the money or left mes-
sages as to how and when they will pay. "I operate mostly on the
honor system and it works very well for me," Dan said.
Christie's crop is just about gone for this seasonbut still the
bushes are loaded and one can pick a peck in just a short while.
He keeps his rows clean and about half way through the acre is
a hammock stretched between two water oaks and a picnic table
for resting and cooling it in the shade. At the end of the field are
several bird houses made of net strung over a "shed which has
several species of birds flying around for the enjoyment of his
*He says he is doing very well with his berry crop this year.
"I'm satisfied with the results," he says. One gets the impression
that Dan just likes to see the berries grow, because he quipped,
"I've got enough planted for me, my customers and the birds!"
There is no attempt made to keep the birds out of the berries.
The German Shepherd dog, located on the premises is a lov-
er, not a fighter. He is there to greet you and not chase you

Orin Schoelles, formerly of
Apalachicola, began serving as a
radio officer in the U.S. Merchant
S Marines in January of 1942. He
sailed on various ships carrying
varied war materials.
Schoelles served in all thea-
ters of the War, beginning in the
North Atlantic and later on in the
Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, In-
dian Ocean, and the North and
South Pacific. He was in Italyi's
when the European War ended
and in the Pacific when Japan
surrendered in 1945. He also
served in the Korean and Viet-
nam Conflicts.
After 42 years of service, he
retired in 1984 and since resided
with his wife, Chris, in Mexico
When the Persian Gulf build-
up of Desert Shield began, the

to reactivate Merchant ships from
the Ready Reserve Fleet. The
ships were coming out to load for
the Persian Gulf when the govern-
ment realized the ships would be
ready to go but there were no offi-

Army Recruiters

Expected to Enlist

75,000 to Active

Duty In 1992

The U.S. Army Recruiting
Command continues to put
young men and women into the
Army, even as the Army is going
through the process of downsiz-
ing. During fiscal year 1992,
Army recruiters will enlist 75,000
Active soldiers and 52,500 Re-
serve soldiers. While this mission
is down considerably from the
mission of the 1980's, there are
still many opportunities for young
people who want to join the Army
in order to learn a skill or to gain
money for college.
According to Lt. Col. Jamiel
S. Saliba, commander of the U.S.
Army Recruiting Battalion head-
quartered in Montgomery, ."re-
cruiting is still required, even
though the Army is in the process
of reducing its force structure.
Maintaining an effective force re-
quires continued recruiting for
young soldiers to fill entry level
positions in 70 critical skills and
in combat units that make up the
greatest part of the Army's nu-
merical strength." Saliba added,
"Most of those soldiers who are
recruited will serve one term and
then return to civilian life. If the
Army were to cease recruiting, it
would become top heavy with offi-
cers and senior enlisted person-
nel, with adverse cost and perfor-
mance consequences."
Saliba points out that as the
Army recruiting mission has been
getting smaller, so has the re-
cruiting force as well as funding
for advertising and overhead ex-
penses. Over. the past several
years, the Recruiting Command
has trimmed the numbers of re-
cruiters, as well as the number of
recruiting stations and intermedi-
ate headquarters. However, de-
spite the reductions, every com-
munity in the U.S. continues to.
have access to an Army recruiter.
The Army continues to offer

new recruits a wide range of ben-
efits, which include guaranteed
training in one of over 250 skills,
and Montgomery G.I. Bill plus
Army College Funds benefits up
to $25,200. Army service also
equips soldiers for life in the civil-
ian sector following their enlist-
ments. The Army assists depart-
ing soldiers through its Army
Career and Alumni Program,
which links them up with private
employers. The key to the success
of the program is that employers
recognize that former soldiers of-
fer "experience for hire," with
skills and personal characteris-
tics which make them outstand-
ing employees.
Saliba says young men and
women should not think that
they no longer have a chance to
enlist. Saliba said, "Bright young
men and women who stay the
course and graduate from high
school will always have an oppor-
tunity in the Army to 'Be all that
they can be.'"

Inhabit the


Sometime during either the
late 1970's or early 1980's Florida
received some new residents who
apparently found the Apalachico-
la River to their liking. And now
they're there to stay.
Fisheries scientists believe
flathead catfish (Pylodictis olivar-
is), which get their name from
their flattened head, entered the
Apalachicola from Lake Seminole
and Georgia's Flint River, which
feeds Lake Seminole. Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission fisheries personnel' first
noticed flatheads in the Apalachi-
cola while conducting routine fish
collections in 1984.
About the same time fisher-
men reported catching an occa-
sional flathead but now the catch
numbers in the hundreds if not
thousands, annually from the Ap-
alachicola. Most of the fish are
caught during the spring and
summer months below Jim
Woodruff Dam at Chattahoochee.
The Commission's Division of
Fisheries now recognizes flathead
catfish among its list of record
fish and in the last two months
two new state record flatheads
have been caught below Jim
Woodruff Dam. They include a
27.75 pound fish landed by Mi-
chael Crews of Fountain on April
20 and a 33.09 pound specimen
boated May 9 by Todd Lewis of
Grand Ridge. Biologists believe
it's only a matter of time until
other record-size flatheads are
But unlike other catfish na-
tive to the Apalachicola, such as
channel and several small species
of catfish referred to as bull-
heads, adult flatheads are live
fish eaters and therein lies the
rub. Some fishermen are afraid
the growth of the flathead popula-
tion in the Apalachicola will mean
drastic changes in other fish pop-
ulations in the river.
Gray Bass, fisheries scientist
and Blackwater Fisheries Re-
search and Development Center
Administrator said, "The con-
cerns we've received center
around flatheads eradicating
bluegills, other panfish, and
channel catfish from the river,
but this has not happened in any
other river or system where
they're naturally found in the
United States, and there's noth-
ing to indicate that any species of
fish in the Apalachicola will be
eliminated or severely impacted."
He said, "Extensive food habit
studies of flatheads in the Flint
River showed crayfish was the
dominant food in those fish un-
der 24 inches in length while
larger flatheads consumed cray-
fish, different species of panfish
and even their own species.
"Obviously flatheads will
compete with other species in-
cluding game fish but they'll
eventually peak in correlation to
the available food supply, That's
a simple law of nature." ,
Bass said where they're na-
tive, such as the Missouri and
Mississippi rivers, they're one of
the largest catfish species present
but not in abundance.
