Gulf Prison Opening In Octobb
Facility at Stone Mill Creek Has Stood Complete but Empty for Nearly a Year
Hiring of 57 Personnel to Begin
as Early as Next Week
With More Hiring to Follow
Representative Robert Trammell of Marianna, told The Star
yesterday that the new state prison, located here in Gulf County
would be opening in late September or early October, to accept
The news has been a long time in coming to the County,
'which has been chafing under the inactivity which has sur-
rounded the source of a possible 200 jobs for residents of the
County. The prison has been ready for inmates ever since July
of last year, but the budget crunch in Tallahassee has prevented
it from opening as early as planned.
George Sweeney, personnel director for the prison system,
said his office would begin hiring personnel, possibly as early as
next week. Sweeney said the facility would hire an initial staff of
57 people to handle the first load of 149 prisoners which will oc-
cupy the first completed dormitory. Sweeney said, 'We will be
hiring 42 security guards, and 15 support people, including cler-
ical help, maintenance and support people initially for the first
phase of getting the prison open. We will begin immediately on
the second phase and continue until we have the full comple-
ment of employees and prisoners." The prison has been built to
house 900 inmates.
Sweeney said he would be in Wewahitchka, personally,
some time next week, to take applications and explain how
they should be filled out as an initial action by his office.
Sweeney said, "I can't be definite about when we will be
there, because we don't have a location nailed down as yet,
but as soon as the plans are finalized, we will make it public
According to Sweeney's statements, the location for taking
applications will not be available until after Wgdnesday of next
week, and the time, place and dates of his people being in Wewa-
hitchka to meet with possible employees.will be printed in next
week's issue. Sweeney did say that the visit would be just as
quick as'arrangements cokld-be-made; as early as next week:
NOT ALL COMPLETED
The prison is not all completed, according to Sweeney. 'We
have two dormitories and some support facilities finished. The
inmates along with private contractors will complete the installa-
tion after we occupy it."
The Department of Corrections started moving some equip-
ment and furnishings into the prison site in June, in order to be-

What's 'Enough'? Z
The sky didn't fall in for Florida because the Legislature
failed to give Governor Lawton Chiles all the budget money he
wanted. Taxes were finally increased, to the chagrin of Florida
citizens and to the consternation of the Senate and House, as a
compromise to keep state services running. Of course the servic-
es never did stop. There was money there all the time, just as we
suspected. Not in the quantities which the Governor wanted, but
a sufficiency to keep services operating at a level commensurate
with the economic level of the day.
The Governor said, 'We didn't do enough, not nearly
enough." To which we reply, 'There isn't ever 'enough'. It always
takes more, where government is concerned." I dc
Florida has been held at hostage for the past six months worst th
while the battle of the budget was being fought. A few services to me. I
were cut back, but no cuts were crucial. No services we needed way up
were curtailed. We had as much as we could afford, but not as tainly w
much as the Governor wanted. super d
Educators of Bay County [whoever they are] said, publicly in tuan me
Friday's News Herald that the education money was not enough, somebody
even at a $242.2 million level. We contend that had it been set Here
at a level of $242.2 BILLION, the educators of Bay County or look up
somewhere in Florida, would say, "That's not enough." through
But, nobody was satisfied with the final budget figure, so we enough
will probably have to go through this same exercise in futility and I st,
next budget year. The Governor was miffed and disgusted be-
cause the Legislature gave him less than half the new funds he
wanted, and the Legislature is out of sorts because they felt they
had to give something to prevent chaos in the State.
For the first time in our memory, the Legislature was reluc-
tant to impose new taxes on the people. Usually, they are all too
ready to fund their pet projects with new taxes. A message pow-
erful enough from the public to get that kind of reaction from a
free-taxing body like Florida's Legislature, should have filtered 4
down to the Governor, too.
While we're at it, that ploy given by the Governor to increase
taxes tied with reduction in local school taxes sounded like the
lottery all over again. Lowering local school taxes through ma-
nipulation of tax sources would really hold the schools of the
state at ransom. We just thought they were the source of bar-
gaining for new taxes this year. Remove half the local funds from
school budgets and replace them with more state funds, distrib-
uted at state whim, and we could really get caught in the
squeeze at budget time. That savings in local school taxes would
disappear overnight through other tax increases, all for the pur-
pose of "educating our kids!"
And, still the school system would be at the funding mercy of
Tallahassee. That's part of what's wrong now. Tallahassee has
too much power over schools.
Bully for You!
You have to admire County Commissioner Billy Traylor for
having the fortitude to suggest that the County return to the at
large system of picking our representatives in county govern-
ment The courts wll probably shoot him down from the very be-
ginning, but we admire him for standing up and saying, "Hey,
the present system isn't working. We have five guys representing
five different districts, who are answerable to nobody but the
voters in their district, and it shows!"
Traylor is absolutely correct in his thinking that if a person
has voters from the entire County looking over his shoulder at
his activities, with the power to cast a vote against him, come
election time, his performance as a County Commissioner would
be vastly different. He would think about how his actions were
affecting the County as a whole, rather than just the people of
his small district.
We never did think highly of the single member district con-
cept. We think a different system could have been arrived at to
guarantee the minorities a seat on county government, without
polarizing the entire county.
To our belief, the single member district hasn't worked all
that well for the minorities, either. It has placed a man on the
Board, but it has diluted his influence by 80%. Everybody has
lost in the deal.
Even though the single member district concept is like eating '.-,
soup with a fork, it is almost a foregone conclusion that there
will be no changes in Gulf County. The present system was man-
dated by the courts-that same institution which said it is un- ..
American to pray at graduation exercises, so please stop it-and
as we see it, the same misguided reasoning will prevail in the fu-
Anyhow, bully for you, Billy, for giving it a try.

Hot Weather Brings Out the Politicians In Droves, Pounding the Pavement for Votes
IT'S GETTING HOT and the
politicians are beginning to stir in
earnest. Anybody who would run
for a political office in this kind of
weather would have to really
want to serve the people. Or, as
the state legislature showed us
over the past month, they would
have to be just plain stubborn.
I think, sometimes, the rea-
son the elections are held in the
fall, necessitating a hot summer
for politicking, was by design. It
roots out all the lazy people. It
takes a worker to get out in this
weather and beat the bushes for
Either that, or those looking
for votes are kind of thinking
about that salary they will get if
they are elected, or, they are gen-
uinely interested in serving the
people in any capacity they can.
Take your pick
But, we don't do bad by our
politicians. We keep them up in
the style in which anyone would
like to become accustomed.
But, I don't begrudge them
the salary, because, believe me,
they earn it if they do their Job
like they are supposed to. \And
then there is the chore of running
for office and paying for a cam-
paign every four years.
ACTUALLY, THE SALARY of
some constitutional officers are
pricing the opposition out of the
market. True, they can go the pe-
tition route, where a particular
candidate can get a petition up of
people asking that their candi-
date be placed on the ballot.
But, if the candidate opts to
run and pay his way as he goes,
it is getting expensive to seek
election to one of the higher pay-
ing offices. It costs seven percent
of the salary for a qualifying fee
and that's a hefty amount of
money to risk to find out if you
are as popular with the people as
you think you are.
That can make a reasonable
campaign for a constitutional of-
fice cost a potential candidate a
conservative total of about $6,000
or $7,000. That's no risk. That's a
big time gamble for high stakes.
CANDIDATES ARE NOW to
the point where they have to put
up or shut up. Qualifying in ear-
nest begins Monday at noon and
continues through the week until
noon on the following Friday. Ei-
ther a candidate puts his name
on the dotted line during this
time frame or forget it until two
years from now.
Several are running already,
with cards, posters, folders, etc.,
but they won't be counted until
they sign that little slip of paper
in the Elections Supervisor's of-
fice and pay their fees.
Next week will separate the
sheep from the goats.
I take it that all who have an-
nounced their intention to run
are dead serious about it. If they
all are, it will be a long hot sum-
mer for sure. One won't be able to
turn around without running into
a candidate or two with out-
stretched hand offering a hand-
shake or a piece of literature say-
ing, "I'm your man, you can
count on me!" [or, "I'm your wom-
an" whichever the case may
PEOPLE OF GULF County
are certainly going to have a
choice this year. In spite of the
hefty qualifying fees, nearly a
record number are turning out to
try their hand at the game of get-
ting elected to office.
It's presently a trying time to
hold public office. Local govern-
ment is being forced to pay for
more and more of its local service
while expecting more and more
money from federal and state
sources. It has come to the time
where we just decide what we
want, tell our public servants our
wishes, and then instruct him to
"apply for a grant" to pay for it.
Grant money is drying up, so
local servants of the public will
find it harder and harder to fulfill
the desires of their constituents.
They'll find it hard, that is, if
they expect to pay for it with any-
thing but local, come-from-our-
pocket taxes, that is; not tax
money which has been given a
diet by ieing passed through Tal-
lahassee or Washington to make
it leaner than when it originated.
It's going to be a tough term
ahead for those getting elected
this year. The free ride is just
about over and it's coming time to
pay back some of that which we
have already been riding on.
I don't want to discourage
anyone from seeking election to
office. Nor do I want to appear to
be a bearer of bad news. Every-
body ought to try to get elected to
some public office at least once in
their life. It is an experience you
will never forget and one which
will probably cost you enough so
you won't soon forget it if you
should happen to be one of the
unfortunate ones to lose the elec-
And, If you get elected you
will probably experience one of
two feelings. You will probably be
elated beyond all imagination or
you will utter the phrase, "How
did I get myself into this?"

It Happened On
It was an exciting and eventful weekend, this past July 4th! A
number of things happened to make it so in our neck-of-the-woods.
It started on Friday, as most weekends do, when I took off work
a little early because everyone else, it seemed, had already started
the weekend without me. One reason I don't sleep much is I'm
afraid I'll miss something.
Anyway, everything seemed so festive that I was surprised when
I arrived home to find an empty house. The serenity, however,
didn't last long. At about "a-quarter-till-dinner" our two teenagers
arrived home from summer camp where they are working and
brought two unexpected weekend guests with them. Wesley and
Bryan are also teenagers and are working at the summer camp with
our two in Tallahassee.
We already had one in the stall at home, but add four more
teenagers to that and that's almost a half-dozen and a weekend of
cooking and washing dishes and clothes. Fortunately, we had been
to one of those "dog-and-pony" shows before so it didn't bother us
too much. As a matter of fact, the two guests, Wesley and Bryan,
proved to be two of the most courteous and well-mannered young
men I have ever met. It was a real pleasure for us to have had them
visit in our home. We have several items of value missing from our
home, but we don't think they took them... intentionally. But, just
in case, I kept a few things of theirs; Bryan's car and half of Wes-
After we had the mess hall and laundry duties all lined out at
about mid-afternoon Saturday, my wife and I departed for a party
W hosted by George and Deborah Newman. (We didn't want to be dnr-
barrassed so we sent all the teenagers to the store and left while
they were gone.) George and Deborah are just about perfect hdsts. '
They have the unique ability of making everyone feel special and,
more importantly, making all guests feel at home. It was a grand
but quiet party. We visited with George and Deborah, their family
members, some old friends and met some new friends of George
and Deborah's from assorted towns in Georgia, mainly Albany and
Cairo. What a wonderful group of people to spend the 4th of July
And then they brought on the food. There was boiled shrimp,
fried shrimp, fresh fried mullet, hushpuppies, chicken, ribs (pork),
cole slaw; potato salad (did I spel "potato" right?) and delicious
baked beans. There was also plenty of iced tea and cold beer and
for dessert someone had brought several Key Lime pies. Just think-
ing about it makes me hungry all over again.
The entertainment, although unplanned, started just as dinner
was being finished. One of the condos caught on fire. It was an elec-
trical fire and everyone was scurrying around trying to put it out
and before we knew it, the Marine Patrol, the Cape San Blas Fire
Department, the ambulance and a big Florida Power truck was
there. They were all armed to the teeth and ready to do their part,
but there was nothing left to do.
No one was injured, thank goodness, but one man came close
when he offered to put out the fire by natural means. He had drank
a considerable amount of beer and felt he could do it until I in-
formed him it was an electrical fire. He was almost shocked!
After that the fireworks show at the city pier was anti-climatic.
Early Sunday morning we discovered that Bryan, one of our
guests and now an adopted family member, had locked his car keys
in his trunk. I called our only locksmith but he wasn't home. I then
called others but no one knew how to open a locked Volkswagen
trunk without tearing out the back seat A short time later we
, waved good-byeto the teenagers asthey departed for Tallahassee in_ ,,
our new van.
All in all it was a wonderful weekend. It wasn't real exciting, but
we visited with some wonderful friends, got to see half our children
and half of someone else's children, ate some wonderful food and
had a "down-home" good time. It was a typical "small town" Ameri-
can holiday for us!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Whew! I'rh glad those kids are back at camp

gin the process of getting the prison open. It wasn't until the
budget stand-off in Tallahassee was completed that the actual
opening was put on the DOC agenda.
Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison, a strong supporter of the
prison, said, 'There are a lot of people who will be glad to hear
this news. Not only will it mean an economic shot in the arm,
but a lot of people have spent their savings, borrowed money
and spent a lot of time taking the special course they will need
to be qualified to work there. They have been waiting a long time

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
( Children and
Bites Are Likely
.a. .* % Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Every year there are numerous animal bites recorded by the
Public Health agencies. Usually only the more severe bites reach
medical attention and are reported. For 1991 Florida recorded 104
bites and Gulf County 13.
The statistics record all bites dogs, cats, ferrets, pet rats, ex-
otic animals, raccoons, horses.
Pets are often an integral part of the family, but discretion in
selection of the pet and in care of handling the pet needs to be an
absolute requirement of ownership.
Many parents select a pet for a child who is too young to under-
stand that he cannot pull on the cat's tail or step on the dog while
he is eating.
Birds can transmit psittacosis to humans. This is a chronic res-
piratory disease that causes a lot of health problems and general
decline in health. This can come from pet birds or from raising
birds such as pigeons.
Turtles often carry salmonella. Salmonella is usually manifest
in humans as a rather severe episode of diarrhea. There can be as-
sociated fever and general illness.
Rabbits, hamsters, gerbils and mice do not usually cause any
major health problems to the handlers.
Pet pythons have been known to kill adult humans by squeez-
ing them to death.
Animals in the wild should be given the utmost respect and ex-
treme caution should be used. Children should never try to feed
squirrels, birds or raccoons no matter how "cute" they seem. Rabies
vaccine is very much improved over past years, but it is still no triv-
ial thing and involves injections the child will not need if he avoids
wild animals that could be rabid, Foxes, bats, squirrels and other
wild animals carry rabies virus.
Children riding horses are often injured. Head injury causes
the most damage. Children who ride horses should wear protective
head gear and receive careful instruction from experienced adults.
Snakes usually are given a wide berth. This caution should be
encouraged and children given careful instructions for behavior if
they encounter a snake.
There are undoubtedly other incidents involving children and
animals but these are the common situations that cause trouble.

Commenting on her new posi-
tion, Wilson said, "I believe that
home health in this area of Flori-

proportions because we are able
to offer our patients the option of
staying at home' and receiving the
treatment they might otherwise
have had to travel some distance
to receive." Citing such examples
as patients who require speech,
physical or IV therapy, Wilson
said, "Our patients are happy
that they don't have to stay long-
er in the hospital. And more im-
portantly, I believe that they get
well more quickly at home."

Seafood Safety Tips...
Trust your nose. Fish
shouldn't smell "fishy." Fresh fish
has virtually no odor. When
ocean fish begins to spoil, it pro-
duces a chemical called trimeth-
ylamnine, which causes the fishy
oator that people associate with,
bkd fish. If it smells bad, don't,
Ideally, fish should be kept
between 30 and 32 degrees Fah-

worn by personnel, etc. Strong,
fish odors may indicate inade-
quately cleaned display cases or
old fish. The presence of flies in-
dicates unsanitary conditions,
high temperatures or spoiling
-Aflsh. .. .
Look closely at seafood dis-
play cases for signs that the tem-
perature may be too high. If a
thermometer is present in the
display case, check the tempera-
ture reading. Bright, hot lights
and open display cases promote
bacterial growth. Fish that are
piled high and not touching ice
should be avoided; select the fish
that are resting directly on or par-
tially covered by ice.
After purchasing seafood, re-
frigerate it quickly. Keep it in the
original wrapper and store in the
coldest part of the refrigerator.
Prepare it witlhfin a day.
Thoroughly cook all seafood.
Thorough cooking kills the bacte-
ria, along with the parasites that
sometime inhabit raw fish. Thor-
oughly cooked fish is opaque and
flakes easily. Eating raw or un-
'dercooked seafood is risky and
should be avoided.
Avoid cross-contamination in
the kitchen. Don't place other
foods such as vegetables, fruits-
or already cooked foods -- on a
cutting board or ; coutterttopl
where raw seafood was sitting.
Wash hands and affected kitchen
surfaces thoroughly after han-
dling or preparing raw seafood.
Be mindful of the potential
for cross-contamination in the
seafood display case at the super-
market. Don't buy cooked seafood
salads that are displayed immedi-
ately next to raw seafood.
When buying whole fish, look
for bright, clear, bulging eyes.
Cloudy, sunken, discolored or,
slime-covered eyes often indicate
that the fish is beginning to spoil.
When buying steaks or fillets,
look for moist flesh that still has
a translucent sheen. Flesh that is.
dried or gaping, where the muscle
fibers are beginning to separate,,
signals an old fish that should
not be purchased.

Recognize Ways to
Boating is really making a
splash it's the fastest growing
family sport 'in America, with
nearly 15 million recreational
boaters nationwide. These mil-
lions of recreational boats share
the waterways with 7,000 tow-
boats and tugboats and over
30,000 barges which carry com-
merce on the 26,000 miles of nav-
igable inland and coastal water-
ways of the United States.
U.S. Coast Guard statistics
show that this crowded situation
has resulted in far too many acci-
dental deaths and serious inju-
ries directly involving pleasure
craft and commercial vessels -
and the annual rate of reported
accidents of this type has also
doubled in the past seven years.
Most such accidents are caused
by a lack of knowledge, poor exe-
.cution of a maneuver or sheer
carelessness by boaters a situ-
ation the American Waterways
Operators (AWO) wants to correct
with its Lifelines safety sugges-
tions, which include:
*Assign one person to look
out for commercial traffic, both
day and night.
*Recognize the misleading
speed of commercial vessels and
their lack of maneuverability.
*Keep in mind that a com-
mercial pilot has a "blind spot"
that can extend hundreds of teetf
in front of ships, tugs and tows
*Make your craft as visible as
possible, especially at night.
*Avoid water skiing and jet
skiing around towboats, tugboats
and other commercial vessels.
*Avoid drugs and alcohol.

The abscess normally starts
with a cavity which is left un-

treacherous work by destroying
the outer case of enamel, then

the tooth called the dentin.
Eventually, the cavity will invade
the innermost part of the tooth,
called the pulp where the nerves
and blood vessels are. Now,
you've got trouble and you'll

by the swelling of the blood ves-

the pulp is surrounded by rigid
The pulp loses the battle
and slowly dies, leaving the

and swarming with germs.
When the germs reach the tip
they will set about making an

to gradually destroy the tissue

A filling will not help a root

should not completely forget
about your present garden. Even
during this interlude, there are
things to think about and tasks
to perform to insure continued
Maintaining a successful,
productive vegetable garden is a
never ending enterprise. Even
though you may be experiencing
a lull between spring harvest and
fall planting, there's still work to
be done. I will talk about how to
take advantage of this period by
performing those fine-tuning
tasks that can make the differ-
ence between good and a great
If you still have vegetables in
your garden, you should continue
perhaps even intensify a regular
pest protection program. We're
into the rainy season now, which
means hot, wet days, .and warm,
humid nights, just the conditions
that stimulate insect and disease
pest activity. Tomato and corn
fruit worms and pickle worms
can be very destructive at this
time. Even those pests which
haven't been overwhelming thus
far, often become severe during
the rainy months. Things like
aphids, cabbage worms, squash
borers, and corn bed worms are
- By Richard K. O'Hern,
Since 1970 the federal gov-
ernment has spent almost $3 bil-
lion of our taxes to promote con-
traceptives and "safe sex" among
our teenagers. It is time we
asked, 'What have we gotten for
Up from 60% in 1976, 76% of
all high school seniors have now
taken sex education courses.
Since that time,'unwed pregnan-
cies have increased 87% among
15-19 year olds, abortion among
teens rose 67% and unwed births
went up 61%. According to testi-
mony provided before the U.S.
Senate Committee on Labor and
Human Resources, "In 15 states
with similar social-demographic
characteristics and rates of teen-
age pregnancy in 1970, those
with the highest expenditures on
family planning showed the larg-,
est increases in abortion and ille-
gitimate births among teenagers
between 1970 and 1979."
What we've gotten for our
money is the highest teenage
pregnancy rate of any developed
nation. More than one-half of
* America's young people. have had
sexual intercourse by the time
they are 17 and a staggering 1
million teenage girls in the United
States become pregnant each
year, according to the Centers for
Disease Control (CDC). That is al-
most 3,000 each day. Almost one-
half of those pregnancies end in
What we've .gotten for our
money in this age of contracep-
tive education is an unprecedent-
ed increase in sexually transmit-
ted diseases, like AIDS, herpes,
syphilis, gonorrhea, and chla-
mydia, that infect 3 million teen-
agers annually, according to
CDC. Many of these diseases can
cause serious, permanent dam-
age including sterility, genital
warts, cervical cancer, and in the
case of AIDS, death.
What we've gotten for our
money, after 22 years and nearly
$3 billion of taxpayer dollars, is
58% of teenage girls under the
age of 18 still not using contra-
ception at their first intercourse.
Furthermore, teenagers continue
having unprotected intercourse
for a full year, on average, before
starting any kind of contracep-
tion. Even if we spent another
$50 billion to promote condom
usage, most teenagers would per-
sist in using them inconsistently
and improperly. The nature of
human beings and the passion of
the act simply do not lend them-
selves to a disciplined response in
young romantics. Even Planned
Parenthood's own data shows
that educating teens about sexu-
ality and contraceptives does not
result in increased condom use.
These alarming statistics re-
flect what scientific review of the
available evidence indicates -
that there is little or no effect
from comprehensive, contracep-
tive-based sex education pro-
grams on sexual behavior, con-
traceptive use, and teenage
If these costly programs
aren't working, then what will
work? In contrast to the typical
sex-ed classes that promote con-
doms, abstinence-based sex-ed
programs are showing great suc-
cess in curtailing teen pregnancy
and teen promiscuity. Studies of
several abstinence-based pro-
grams conducted by the Office of
Adolescent Pregnancy Programs
of the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services yielded en-
Data from four junior high
schools in 1988 of the Me, My
World, My Future program, pro-
!; duced by Teen Aid, used by over
2,500 schools nationally, indicat-
ed that students who completed
the program became more aware
of the benefits qf abstaining from
sexual intercourse at tieIr age
and that they would be less ,likely
to engage in intercourse before
Likewise, studies of Sex Re-
spect, an abstinence-based sex
education program adopted in
over 1,000 school .districts across
the country, found that students
who completed the program had
a greater awareness of the bene-
fits of abstinence and a greater
sense of self-control. Sex Respect
yielded significant results at 14
schools in six Midwestern states,
with 1,841 students participat-
ing. Before taking the course, 36
percent of the students said sexu-
al intercourse among teens is ac-
ceptable, provided no pregnancy
results. Only 18 percent agreed
after the course, and 65.5 percent
disagreed. Data in 1990 for 3,500
students showLed that only 5 per-
cent of the females who partici-
pated in the Sex Respect program
had become pregnant both one
and two years later, whereas the
control group of females not tak-
ing the program had a 9 percent
While some people believe it
is necessary to include a section
fi sex-ed curricula on contracep-
tives for teens who are sexually
active, they must realize that
such an inclusion weakens the
emphasis on abstinence and
sends a mixed message to our

common problems. Ybu should be
especially alert for signs of dam-
age, and be prepared to apply in-
secticides as needed.
In addition, maintain a sharp
lookout for the spread of plant
diseases. Any diseased plants
should be pulled out and dis-
posed of as soon as possible.
Plants remaining in the garden
should be sprayed weekly with a
Summer is a good time to
evaluate the seed varieties you se-
lected for the spring garden. Ask
yourself such questions as Did
the variety produce strong, vigor-
ous plants?... What about the
quality of the vegetables them-
selves?... How about disease re-
sistance? Try to make a note of
the varieties which did well and
those that didn't, so you'll have
some idea of the ones you'll want
to include in your fall vegetable
Also, summer offers a good
opportunity to observe the benefi-
cial effects of mulching. If you
mulched your spring garden,
you'll notice that you have very
few weeds, whereas your neigh-
bor's unmulched garden may be
overrun with weed growth. Nema-
tode injury also is much milder
on mulched vegetables. While
nematodes will attack mulched
plants, their effects are not as se-
vere, because of the healthier root
zone in a mulched garden.
The most striking observation
you'll make about mulching is
how it controls soil moisture. Veg-
etables grown on unmulched, not
sandy Florida soils will droop,
while those grown in mulched
gardens will stand tall.. We've
seen all kinds of materials used
for mulching, including plastic,
pine straw, hay, oak leaves, and
wood shavings even such
things as peanut hulls, newspa-
pers, and gravel.
You may think of other sum-
mer chores and new gardening
ideas. Meanwhile, don't forget the
care of any plants that are still
producing. A little extra effort
may squeeze some valuable pro-
ductivity from your old plot. And,
be sure to use any extra time
during this slow gardening sea-
son to formulate future plans -
plans that could pay off in a bet-
ter fall harvest.
children. The Louis Harris poll
commissioned by Planned Parent-
hood confirms the danger of
mixed messages. Teens whose
parents have discussed contra-
ceptives have a greater likelihood
of- being sexually active than
those whose parents do not dis-
cuss contraceptives in their sex
education. Furthermore, while
Florida law pertaining to sex-ed
curricula in public schools does
not mention contraceptive educa-
tion, it does require that the in-
struction in public schools "shall
teach abstinence from sexual ac-
tivity outside of marriage as the
expected standard for all school
age children while teaching the
benefits of monogamous hetero-,
As we've seen from the mil-
lions of dollars spent, the contra-
ceptive approach does not work.
It has not reduced pregnancy,
abortion or sexually transmitted
diseases, has promoted promis-
cuity, and has confused our chil-
dren by sending mixed messages.
But values like prudence, forti-
tude and self-control are not con-
fusing and never change. Absti-
nenice before marriage, then
marriage and mutual fidelity for
life is the only underlying way to
decrease teenage pregnancy,
AIDS and other sexually trans-
mitted diseases. To tell ourselves
or our children anything else is
deadly, deceitful, and expensive.

Douglas E. Barr, Executive Direc-
tor of the Northwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District. "Resto-
ration of these traditional
southern forests is crucial if the
ecological diversity of the Florida
panhandle is to be maintained."
Over 100 acres of forests
have now been restored by
NWFWMD through the reforesta-
tion program which began in
1987. An additional 170 acres are
slated for restoration during the
remainder of 1992 and in 1993.
Future restoration efforts will in-
clude 90 acres of longleaf pine
habitat along the Choctawhatch-
ee River, 80 acres of mixed bot-
tomland hardwood forests along
the Apalachicola and Chocta-
whatchee rivers, and several
areas along Holmes Creek in
"Areas selected for reforesta-
tion were chosen because of the
lack of species diversity or be-
cause of the poor quality of resid-
ual trees remaining after earlier
timfiber harvesting activities," stat-
ed William 0. Cleckley, Lands Co-
Among the hardwood tree
species which have been planted
were bald cypress, green ash,
sweetgum, sycamore, Florida elm,
and a variety of oaks.
We the family of the late
George Bryant, Jr. wish to thank
the wonderful people of Gulf
County for their kindness in our
time of bereavement.
Thanks, everyone, so much.

NWFWMD recently planted,
approximately 18,000 longleaf
pine and 22,000 hardwood trees
along the Apalachicola and Choc-
tawhatchee rivers. The hardwood
trees were purchased through a
Pollution Recovery Trust Fund
grant administered by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Regulation. The area restored in-

acquired by the District to help
protect and preserve important
water resources in its region.

to re-establish historic forest pat-
