Raffleld told The Star Tuesday
afternoon, "I still haven't been
served with any kind of notice in
this matter. I don't know what it
is all about. I have never been
called by a grand jury. So far as I
know, I haven't been investigated
by any grand jury. The first I
knew of the matter was when the

Wednesday afternoon around
5:00 p.m., Rafield said,' "They
never sent one to me."
Raffleld said he contacted his
attorney immediately when he
read the account in the newspa-
pers to try to get an explanation,
but his attorney knew nothing
about the charges either. Since
then Raffleld said his attorney
has been in touch with the U.S.
Court's attorney on Monday, to
get an explanation. "So far, we're
still in the dark about the charg-
es. So far as I know, I have done
nothing wrong," Raffield said.
The only clear winner to come
out of the balloting Tuesday, was
Supervisor of Elections, Cora Sue
Robinson. She won approval of
her third term in office by besting
opponents Phyllis Beaman and
Patricia Blaschum. Robinson had

Gulf County Sends Food and Comfort
to Homestead/Miami Victims of Hurricane Andrew
Gulf County has been industriously answering the call for
help from the Miami/Homestead area this week; gathering up
supplies to be shipped to the devastated area to give relief to the
hurricane victims who survived Hurricane Andrew, as it
slammed across the state on its way to the Gulf of Mexico.
Last Thursday a collection of food was initiated by the three
civic clubs in the City and evolved into a community-wide effort
to fill a trailer van full of food, toilet articles, survival materials,
water and other necessities needed by a devastated people.
The Fire Station was the gathering place for the relief sup-
plies to be collected and packed for shipment. Volunteers
showed up to do the packing work and sorting. Nobody kept
schedules, but there was always a team present, every day, from
Wednesday until early afternoon Monday, when the trailer final-
ly was packed full and moved out for south Florida.
In their Sunday morning worship Rev. Dan Duncan, pastor
of Long Avenue Baptist Church, announced the church was col-
lecting food for south Florida and by the time for the evening
service, a 15-passenger van and a U-Haul trailer was filled with
supplies. After church, Liba Monteiro, Tommy Ford, Mrs. Mon-
teiro and Mrs. Bobby Jackson, took off to Homestead with the
load for a non-stop round trip. Oak Grove Assembly of God
Church sent their van loaded with food for the survivors. Port St.
Joe Elementary School filled a pick-up truck with canned food
and sent it south.
There were other acts of assistance by the people of Port St.
Joe to answer a call for help, but The Star was not notified of the
Nobody asked for recognition. They just helped.

The calling in of an expert to give recommendations on how
to most effectively handle, store, bale, or sell recyclable products
can be a big asset to Gulf County in days to come. We suggested
something similar to this a few weeks ago as a solution which
could save Gulf County money and make collections more effi-
cient for everyone.
It's obvious the County, Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka can't
all collect cans with any sort of economy. The same goes for
glass, plastics, etc. But, one government agency doing the bit for
recycling he is best suited to do and the program handled in this
way all over the County, Gulf County and its citizens can do its
part without an undue burden on anyone.
Thus far, only the City of Port St. Joe has gotten into recy-
cling with any effectiveness, and it's only scratching the surface.
They're meeting all sorts of roadblocks in getting rid of the mate-
rial. It's becoming a glut on the market. There are markets out
there; the trick is to find the best one to meet your needs.
The County Commission's hiring of a consulting firm to set
up a program can probably assist in getting rid of the product,
The State of Florida is beginning to make moves like they are
going to take the recyclable products and get rid of them for the
entire state at one time. In that kind of volume, there is probably
a market ofut there somewhere eager to get scrap glass, alumi-
num, plastics, etc. Who knows, they might even find a use for
old tires and remove that problem from our waste stream.
When all this recycling gets into full swing, we can see the in-
cindrators over the state begin to woo the municipalities for their
garbage to burn. Most of them are depending on the steam the
burning generates to pay for part of the cost of burning.
In the meantime, Gulf and other counties in the state have
until 1995, which is just two and a half years into the future, to
remove at least 30% from the waste stream through recycling.
With the rate of Florida's growth, that percentage will probably
be nearer 50% of today's load by the time the deadline gets here.
When we were serving on the City Commission several years
ago, we were attending a League of Cities meeting in the vicinity
of Miami. As a demonstration, a company took us on a trip to
see a waste recovery plant in action, turning garbage into meth-
ane gas. That was at least 20 years ago, before recycle became a
buzzword or a way of life. That south Florida city had the materi-
al for the -recovery unit above aground--100 feet above-in a
huge pile which covered five acres. That was only part of that
county's solid waste. So you can imagine the problem solid
waste is becoming.
Let's hope Gulf is soon to recover some of the tremendous ex-
pense of handling the product, through not having to handle it
to the point of disposal.
A Helping Hand
Gulf County citizens remember "Kate" back In 1985 and the
misery and inconvenience it caused us. We remember being
without electric power for several days. We remember the town

tthe destruction of property 'they experienced In south Florida
and for that we were grateful.
A house burned, several were damaged, high tides pushed
water into several homes, felled trees were everywhere.
But the thing we remembered most were the strangers who
came to help and sent food and assistance. They didn't know us
and we didn't know them. But those people responded and oper-
ated self-contained trailers to prepare hot meals for as long as
they were needed. People sent generators to keep freezers run-
ning and ice for parched throats and workmen to help get the
electricity back in operation. People helped us get through a dif-
This week, Port St. Joe and Gulf County repaid that debt of
kindness and unselfish aid toward the victims of "Andrew" in
the Homestead area. Churches sent vans loaded with food, wa-
ter, charcoal and toilet articles. Students of at least one school
collected a pick-up truck full with of food. The community band-
'ed together to completely fill a 40-foot trailer with food and items
iof necessity, to send to south Florida.
We know our contribution didn't heal the need and the suf-
fering in that unfortunate section of our state, but it did express
our sympathies for their plight and just possibly it was a wel-
come sight to several citizens of the Homestead and the Miami

back in 1967.
My favorite hal in the early
days was a black felt cowboy hat.
It had a lacing that went around
the outer edge and a drawstring
that I would snug up under my
chin when I had Trigger or Silver
or Champion going full out. I
loved that hat. I rolled over cliffs
in it, I jumped out of trees, I
cleaned up Dodge city, I rode off

"Next." My heart jumped six
beats. Mr. Bobby Jack was giving
out the new little league caps. It
was my first year. "Don't bend the
bill over too far. Kind'a get the
crown to stand up like this, put a
little crease across here, and
don't get it dirty or lose It. you
won't get another one."

the straight, plain "L" on the front

hands. My first baseball cap. My
first real baseball cap. I'd made
the team! I smelled the cloth. I

smell. I cupped the bill just a lit-
tle, worked on my crease so it
would stand up and eased that
cap on my head with pride. What
a feeling! I was Joe DiMagglo, Wil-
lie Mays, Stan, the Man...........
Our high school caps were
made by New Era, good hats. If
you could get the crown like you
wanted it, it would stay there for-
ever. 'Course I guess the best cap
I wore in high school was that
batting helmet. I never will forget
the night that tall right hander,
pitching for Murray, Kentucky,
hit me on the side of the head.
That helmet caught most of the
blow. At least, that's what every-
body said when I came to. "Gosh,
Kes, you were lucky It's a good
thing you .were wearing
I remember thinking, "If I'd
been lucky, Bobby Jackson would
have been batting."
I played four years in college
and never did have a cap that I
liked. I just couldrn't get one that
"fit". It affected my~play.
I had a Golden Flow Co-Op
hat years ago that fit just right. I
wore that thing 'til my wife near
'bout had a "fit" of her own. My
current "good one" is a Tampa
Bay Buccaneers cap. Now, I'm
not a Bucs fan and I don't really
like the colors but this hat "feels
good." I've got to stay with it.

Here at The Star, we hire a
couple of DCT students and work
them all through the school year
and usually the summer following
their senior year. This year we
had a young man in the printing
department, helping on the press-
es, delivering printing, washing
down the presses, etc., and a
young lady in the front office
helping with the office supply
business. She checked in stock,
put it up, waited on people, did
little odds and ends and gossiped
with Carol when she was caught
up with her work.
The young people we had this
past year were both a pleasure to
have. We still don't know much
about Travis Ray, however, be-
cause Travis Ray has never spok-
en two sentences at one "talking"
since he came here last August.
Travis always had the same
cap on when he came to work
every day and his momma made
him wear the same clothes al-
most every day, to keep from get-
ting ink on another set of pants
and shirt. They got washed regu-
larly though, but that ink was
still there and by now he looks
like a Dalmatian with his spots
IT TAKES SOME getting ac-
customed to; working around ink
and presses. If you're not accus-
tomed to it, it seems like the
blobs of ink just jump off the
presses, onto your clothes, and
nothing you can do can prevent
it. But, after a while, you learn
how to hold an ink knife to keep
it from dripping on you and the
floor. You learn how to remove it
from an ink well on the back of
the press and you even learn how
to wash down the large ink rollers'
without getting it all over you.
Travis was just about to that
point. When he came here, I
could always find him by follow-
ing the ink footprints through the
back shop and at the end of the
trail, there would be Travis.
UP FRONT, WE had Shan-
non Smith. Shannon was a good
clerk and did her work well. She
was a cute little girl and helped
our business very much with the
young men who worked with the
businesses here in town. They
came after their office supplies.
Shannon was one of those ir-
ritating people who knows where
everything is located. You know
the kind. "Shannon, where are
the left-handed pencil sharpen-
ers?" She could put her hand
right on them.
"Shannon, where is the print-
ing ticket for job 709?" Shannon
could produce it in just a second.
The only trouble was, she also
put up the stock and nobody else
could locate it! That's the reason
Shannon didn't have too many

when something was happening I
was unable to attend. She made
pictures, periodically, and took

Now Shannon is attending
Gulf Coast College, studying to be
a dental assistant.
TAKING SHANNON'S place,
up in the office, is Tonya Plair.
We figured we should have some-
one in the office full time, now, so
we won't have a DCT student
I'm not real sure if Tonya is
going to work out though. She
hadn't been here two days before
she had done something to the of-
fice, which was a mystery to me
until I went up front to get some-
thing. Imagine my surprise when
it wasn't in the pile it always
stayed in. As a matter of fact, the
pile was even gone.
"Where's the stack which al-
ways stayed here?" I asked. "It
contained some important things.
What happened to it?"
Well, what happened to. it
was that Tonya had found a place
for everything and put everything
in its place. The organized may-
hem of the desk was gone!
Well to make a long story
short, Tonya is one of those "neat
freaks!" I don't know how this is
going to work. There has never
been a neat desk in this place in
all the 40 years I have been here.
But, there is nowl I'm going to
have to go changing my style of
doing things at my ripe old age. I
don't know if I can hack it or not.
I'M JUST BIDING my time,
however. Tonya 'may be a "neat
freak" and like to organize the top
of desks, but comes the day she
messes with Frenchle's desk,
there might be an explosion

Tonya says she is not mess-
ing with Frenchie's desk.

When my son left home for college a few years ago, I was
thrilled. At the time I saw reflections of my departure from home
and how happy I was that I would never have to milk another cow,
plow another field, feed another chicken or hog and never have to
split another block of firewood.
But it wasn't the work I was glad to get away from, I found out
later. Work was something I grew up with, so it was no big thing.
Besides, work gave me something to do each morning when I woke
up at five a.m.
Looking back, I now realize that the real reason I was glad to be
leaving home was I was ready to tackle this thing called "manhood"
and see what I could do with it. The jury is still out on that one.
From time to time during the several years I've written articles
for this space, I've mentioned this phenomenon (children leaving
home) and the effect it has had on different members of the family.
In one article (The Empty Nest Syndrome) several years ago, I even
made fun of parents who became depressed and despondent when
their children left the nest. I labeled them as weak and dependent
parents, while I vowed to be strong and unyielding. At the time all
my children were pre-teens and toddlers.
It has been my opinion that a man, if he is to enjoy any meas-
ure of success, must be tough. To me, the laws of the jungle dictate
and demand toughness. And, in my opinion, that goes double if he
is to be successful in business and family life.
Although I don't consider myself extremely successful by any
measure, I have managed to keep my head above the rising tide
thus far. I have always tried to be as tough as circumstances dic-
tate, but in doing so I have also tried to be fair.
But life has a way of keeping us on a more even keel than we
would like to be or think we should be. Let me tell you how Mr. Life
brought me down about 10 notches.
For many months, prior to August 24, 1992, I have known that
my daughter was going to leave home for college. As a matter of
fact, I probably knew it better than anyone because I spent a con-
siderable amount of time making financial arrangements for her to
go. Believe me, the financial part of'college will keep you running
and thinking, as you probably know if you've put one through col-
For several weeks prior to her departure I had discussed her
leaving with my wife, several family members and a few close
friends. I related that I was sincerely happy that she was leaving be-
cause she was excited about going and looking forward to it and,
besides, it was that time and I knew it. She is a good girl and will
do well and enjoy herself.
I even bragged a little, stating that it will be nice to go to bed
and be able to sleep soundly before midnight because we wouldn't
be waiting up for her to come in. And maybe there wouldn't be that
terror that parents often experience when the phone rings late at
night when their children are out.
Life was going to be much easier for my wife and I with only one
left in the nest, I bragged.
On Sunday afternoon, the day before she left, I walked to her
bedroom door arid suddenly stopped. She was not home and as I
looked in I saw that her room was in disarray because she was
packing to leave. And there I stood!
At that precise moment the reality of her leaving hit me with all
the fdrce of an Andrew-type hurricane. My heart began to pound
and'a large timp rose nri my throat. A sudden feeling of loss con-
sumed me and mmyeyes began to tear.
Oh, I knew all the answers, that she would be back some week-
ends, holidays and maybe a summer or two, but a voice deep down
within told me the sad news: Daddy's little girl is gone from this
home and will probably never come back here to live. The reality of
it was overwhelming and devastating!
The next morning, the day she left, I waited until she was up
and called her to the kitchen table and told her just how I felt. I told
her I loved her very much and that I was going to miss her more
than she would ever know and if she ever needed anything to please
call; call me, day or night and that I would always love her without
reservations and to please keep in touch and let us know how she
was doing in school and on and on and on.............
When I. had finally finished, she looked at me and smiled and
said, "Awwww, Dad,,I'll be back before you know it. Pensacola isn't
that far away. Do you have some extra. money and a credit card or
two for me?"
Tharik goodness the last one in tfhe nest is a boy!

month and the entire month of
October, the Executive Commit-
tees of both parties have a chance
to contribute to the enlighten-
ment of ALL voters in a biparti-
san effort. On the November bal-
lot, there will be 10 Amendments
and Revisions to the Constitution
of the State of Florida, covering
such subjects as Suffrage of Elec-
tions, Finance and Taxation, Lim-
ited Political Terms, and Home-
stead Valuation Limitation. These
amendments and revisions are
not simply stated in layman
terms, but are indeed written in
legal jargon not at all common to
the every day voter and citizen.
This writer would offer., that
the Committees join together and
attempt to obtain experts or at
least highly qualified individuals
to objectively discuss the. amend-
ments and revisions in open for-
ums. The forums would certainly
contribute to a better under-
standing of these seemingly sim-
ple yet complex changes to our
state constitution. Of course, the
purpose of the forums would be
to simply describe the effect each
amendment and revision would
have on the state as well as the
citizens of this county. No at-
tempt would or should be made
to Influence a voter in favor of or
against any proposed amendment
Wouldn't it be great to go into
the polling place on November
3rd totally aware and under-
standing the complex ballot that
will certainly face us? Imagine the
Police Chief Carl Richter said
his department broke up a three-
year-old outboard motor theft
ring with the arrest of three local
men this week.
Arrested, and facing multiple
charges for grand theft, dealing in
stolen property and organizing a
stolen property ring, were Mark
Andrew Gay, 26, of 123 2nd Ave-
nue, Oak Grove. He is charged
with three counts on each of the
charges except the organizing
Charles Dewayne Brant, 602
Garrison Avenue; three counts of
grand theft and three counts of
Cris Blankenship, 20, Port
St. Joe. One count of grand theft.
Richter said the trio had sto-
len at least eight motors since
June, 1989, valued at $31,600.
Chief Richter said more ar-
rests are expected and possibly
more charges will be filed.
The Chief said the men would
advertise their stolen motors in
an Atlanta, Ga., Shopper and de-
liver them when they received an
inquiry. "In some cases they even
gave a warranty on the motors,"
The FBI still may enter into
the investigation since the men
shipped the motors across state
lines to dispose of them.

May I have your attention?
There's something you must
Before making your decision
when to the polls you go.
We've heard enough trash, the
students have too.
Who reaps the benefit, the stu-
dents, me or you?
.Certainly not the students who
walk the halls each day,
And if not, what motivates to
conduct business this way?
Could it be grudges or. politics?
Regardless, we've had enough,
Instead of tearing down, -
what's wrong with building
I know it may not warrant as
much attention from the press,
But who needs all the negative
trash? OUR SCHOOLS ARE
There's been too much focus on
the negative for me,
Obviously, some aren't inter-
ested in the good I see.
Why not a pat on the back of a
child struggling with science or
Or praise when one makes the
effort, yet still strikes out at
Our students sit back and ques-

I can understand their amaze-

FOR KIDS' SAKE we need a
change.........someone who cares
all the time,
Someone to fight when things
are wrong, yet praise when
things are right.
and teen age boy being bitten by
a rabid raccoon last Wednesday
Doug Kent, County Environ-
mental Officer, said the bites
were reported to his office and
steps immediately taken to exam-
ine the raccoon for rabies. "We
sent it to our lab in Gainesville to
get a determination, even though
we positively suspected the ani-
mal was infected. The report
came back Monday, that the ani-
mal was positively infected and
the bite victims would be faced
with taking the anti-rabies
shots," he said.
Sheriff Al Harrison said the
victims, a housewife and a teen-
age boy of Highland View, were
attempting to control the baby
raccoon, after the housewife had
been given the animal to replace
a former pet. It nipped the wom-
an on the hand and the boy took
it and attempted to pet it into
submission. Instead, the animal
turned on the boy also and bit

mal, there's likely to be more,"

Coach Hicks Enlightens Rotary
Members About Football Team
Head football coach and Port
St. Joe athletic director, John
Hicks, spoke to the Rotary Club
last Thursday about his hopes for
the football team during the com-
ing season. Coming off a 1-9 year
and starting the season with a
new coach, Hicks said his main
job is to instill a sense of confi-
dence and faith in the young men
that they can win.
a'We can win against anybody
this year, if we play as hard as we
can every game. We will win a vic-
tory inside ourselves, even if we
do not score the most points," the
coach said. "The real winners are
the ones who lose. a game and
come back the next week and
play as hard as they can again."
Hicks said his staff is going to
at Wewa Elem.
Ground breaking for the Me-
dia Center and Exceptional Stu-
dent Education complex will be-
gin at Wewahitchka Elementary
school on Friday, September 4th,
1f 9:00 a.m. CT. All interested
persons are encouraged to attend
and share in this momentous oc-
casion with the students, staff
and citizens of Gulf County.

'We're working on every
member of the squad developing
a positive attitude of approaching
the game," Hicks said. '"The team
is not going to be loaded with tal-
ent and not very much speed, but
we have some other pluses which
will overcome our weaknesses if
they.are utilized to potential."
The Sharks biggest asset this
year will be its offensive line. "We
have a good size line, able to
move and react quickly. No 300

If you like to think and talk
about the past, especially the
past in your lifetime, you'll like
the program to be presented by
Margaret Smith. Margaret has a
lifelong association with public
education in Port St. Joe and
elsewhere. Her topic will be, "Life

Port St. Joe you can reminisce
along with Margaret and if you
are a new comer to the area, you
will be fascinated by the stories
that's a good size for high schc
football without being sluggish
and awkward. Our line can pro-
tect our quarterback a little more
this year and increase his effec-
tiveness tremendously. Our quar-
terback took a pounding last
year, and nobody can do their
best in that kind of a situation."
Hicks said the team would

win against the tough schedule
we play this year.
"Our kicking game is good
and accurate, but not from long
distances. We can kick a field
goal with good regularity within
the 20 yard line, but we have
problems farther out," Hicks said.
'We're going to be working to

Old St. Joseph: 1 of 2 Leading Cities
Lost Battle for Survival with Sister City ofApalachicola After Economic Struggle
THE RISE AND FALL OF ST. JOSEPH
On November 30, 1835, the "Saints" pe-
titioned the Legislative Council and again on
December 14, 1835, to move the county seat
to St. Joseph.
The Franklin Bank of St. Joseph was es-
tablished and Incorporated with a capital
stock of $1,000,000.00.
On December 14, 1835, the first sale of
lots began in St. Joseph.
From 1836 to 1841 THE ST. JOSEPH
AND APAIACHICOLA PEOPLES fought bit-
terly for supremacy as they were the two
leading cities in the TERRITORY OF FLORI-
DA and became known as 'The Twin Cities
of the Gulf' during their heyday.
When men of prominence and influence
engage in a costly undertaking and enter
into such bitter rivalries as did THE APA-
LACHICOLA LAND COMPANY and THE
PROMOTERS OF ST. JOSEPH the scene of
action will almost inevitably be at times
transferred to the political arena. The
"Saints", as they were popularly called, by
Legislative Acts and otherwise, immediately
attempted to retard the development of ,the
old town of Apalachicola.*
Capital for the development of St. Jo-
seph came primarily from the wealthy mer-
chants, planters, and business men of Co-
lumbus, Georgia, Marianna, Quincy, and
Tallahassee. As the city boomed, two banks
were chartered and several other banks had
branch banks located in St. Joseph.
The streets of Bay, Commerce, Palmetto,
Magnolia, Washington, and Columbus were
lined with wharves, business houses, ware-
houses, and spacious homes. Among the
large hotels built were the Mansion House,
Tontine, Shakespeare, Byron House, Ger-
man Ocean House, and the' Railroad Cot-
tage, the latter specializing in "La, Cuisine
Among the industries were a cotton
press, grist meal, brickyard, shipyard, and
an ice house to house thce shipped down
by sailing vessel from New England. Also nu-
merous were the cotton factorage and com-
mission firms. The city boasted of a race
track, "the Calhoun Course", with 35 stalls.
The race track was one of only four in the
Territory of Florida.
Without a peer In the promotion of the
new city of St. Joseph was the youthful edi-
tor of the St. Joseph Times, Peter W. Gautier,
Jr. Gautier bought the St. Joseph Telegraph,
established in November, 1835, by John
Baldwin, Publisher, in November, 1'836 and
changed its name to the St. Joseph Times.
With his clever wit and flamboyance The
St. Joseph Times soon became the most
quoted newspaper in the Territory and its
editor has been acclaimed as the best news-
paper stylist of the period. Gautier had
agents for the circulation of the Times in Tal-
lahassee, Marianna, Pensacola, and lola in
Florida, and Bainbridge and Columbus in
Georgia. It was largely through the efforts of
Peter W. Gautier, Jr. as an influential mem-
ber of the Territorial Legislative Council that
St. Joseph was chosen as the city -of Flori-
da's first Constitutional Convention. This ac-
corded St. Joseph a distinction no other city
in Florida can ever claim and assured it a
permanent place in the state's history.
Fifty-six delegates were elected to the
convention from every county in Territorial
Florida. The delegates assembled in St. Jo-
seph to draft a Constitution whereby the
Territory could be admitted to the Union as
a state. The Constitutional Convention be-
gan its proceedings on December 3, 1838.
The delegates labored diligently for 34 days
to draft the Constitution which was signed
Can Your Yard
It's hurricane season again
and time to take steps to reduce
the likelihood of damage to your
landscape should one of these
storms pass through your area.
The challenge of reducing storm
related damage to landscape
plants is compounded by the fact
that most sections of the state
4 haven't experienced a major
storm since the mid 80's..Many_
communities and their residents
have become too complacent. The
result is that little has been done
in the area of hurricane-plant
management in Florida.
The arrival of hurricane sea-
son signals the need to develop
some contingency plans to guard
our lives and property from pow-
erful winds and flooding rains.
Ornamental plants and other
landscape objects are especially
vulnerable. Our information on
this topic was provided by Exten-
sion Urban Horticulture Special-
ist Dr. Robert Black, of the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute of
Flood and Agricultural Sciences.
During the 'storm season it is
especially important to keep roof
gutters clear of leaves, twigs, and
other debris. Drainage should be
at its best to cope with heavy hur-

Gainous Post 10069 V.F.W. and
the Ladies Auxiliary will hold, its
regular meeting on Tuesday, Sep-
9 member 8 at' the Post Home in
Highland View at 7:30 p.m. ET.
All members aire urged to attend.
If you have hanging baskets,
tub plants, or large potted plants
on exposed porches or patios,
they should be moved indoors
ahead of the storm. Hurricane
winds can damage or completely
destroy both exposed plants and
containers. Other loose Items
which can be hurled about, such
as lawn furniture, garden tools,.
toys, and garbage cans, also
should be brought inside before
strong winds strike. In addition to
being severely damaged or de-
stroyed, such objects can become
lethal flying objects during a hur-
While we all hope our state
avoids serious hurricane damage
this season, it's still very impor-
tant to be prepared. So, check
your home grounds thoroughly,
keeping our precautionary point-
ers in mind. If you detect poten-
tial dangers take corrective action
When an area has been free
of hurricane strength winds, trees
can grow to a massive or unbal-
anced height and there is a possi-
bility of severe damage to them
and to structures near them
when a storm finally hits. Falling
limbs can cause considerable
damage to cars, house roofs, win-
dows or other objects they strike.
It may be necessary to reduce the
size of overgrown, neglected trees.
This will require severe surgery
and the tree will probably be ugly
for a few months whether or not
the storm hits. Gardeners who
have kept their trees thinned and
with a canopy in proportion to
the trunk will have only a minor
pruning operation. The order of

The St. Joseph Constitution became the
organic law of Florida when it was admitted
to the Union on March 3, 1845, as the 27th
state. Among the delegates were men des-
tined to influence the history of Florida for
the succeeding three decades. They included
the first Territorial governor, three future
governors, the first three United States Sen-
ators, five delegates to the Florida Secession
Convention, five United States Representa-
tives in Congress, and five members of the
Florida Supreme Court.
St. Joseph, prosperous as it was and of-
ten referred to as 'The Pearl of the Gulf' by
its promoters, was not without its many ad-
versities. The great economic panic of 1837
which swept the entire nation was a major
blow to the thriving young city. Yellow fever
brought in by a sailing ship from the West
Indies reached epidemic proportions in July
and August of 1841. The dread disease
plagued the city sparing neither rich nor
poor. Among the many to succumb were
prominent Florida statesmen, journalists,
and merchants. The city, almost depopulat-
ed, was struck by a severe hurricane later in
the same year.
The devastating hurricane of September
1844 completely destroyed St. Joseph.** Old
timers say there was an earthquake in the
Gulf causing a tidal wave that added insult
It is ironic that the birthplace of the
State of Florida was depopulated and almost
abandoned when Florida was admitted to
the Union in 1845. By 1850, the once proud
and prosperous St. Joseph was completely

pruning is always the same, be-
ginning with the removal of dead,
diseased, and damaged wood,
taking out water spouts, cutting
out crossing branches and
branches that clutter the center
S-othe-tree, thinning out branches
to establish a well spaced frame-
work of branches. Keep In mind
that not all trees are amenable to
pruning because of their shape.
As a general rule, trees with co-
lumnar habits are less amenable
to pruning. The pine, sycamore
and Italian cypress are a few of
the trees that display this growth
habit. Pruning these trees will
cause major disfigurement.

Santa Claus Came Early
We hadn't even hung our
stockings yet, but still we were
treated. Kindergarten classrooms
got these beautiful, thick 9' x 12'
teaching carpets complete with
numbers, letter, and pictures
woven in beautiful primary col-

received giant interlocking blocks
and a table to house them. Sec-

Wednesday. He broke his arm
and had to be taken by ambu-

was swinging at the time of the
accident. This was our first acci-
dent of the new year. We're glad
he's on the mend.

"At the Beach"
by Joey Lea
"At the beach I have lots of
fun. I find jelly fish, hermit crabs,
baby sharks and big fossils. I like
that place I go to. It is called Mex-
ico Beach. I also have gone to the
Great Salt Lake. At Mexico Beach,
I saw a shark down a sword fish
and a little baby squid. That's all
Faith Christian News
By Brandy Williams
It's back to school for students and teachers at Faith Christian
School. Students started back Tuesday, the eighteenth of August,
with an enrollment of 154, our biggest ever. Our teachers are excit-
ed about the new year. Mr. Fred Goebert gave them a lift with three
days of spiritual Bible teaching, and being the encourager that he.
is, has helped them to see that a great year lies ahead.
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
We overheard a second grader who, while waiting to go to class,
asked, "Hey, where's Michael Hammond?" Well, our seniors may be
gone, but they're not forgotten. Our two seniors from last year,
Shannon Marie Cain and Michael Lee Hammond, are both busy
and have great new beginnings in their futures.
Shannon is awaiting the big day of departure. She will be leav-
ithg the eighth to attend Pensacola Christian School. She is unsure
of her major but believes elementary education is what lies ahead.
We hope Shannon enjoys college and that she will learn all the Lord
has in store for her in order to grow to be her best in her career
Michael is running for County Commissioner of District 3 while
also attending Gulf Coast Community College. As of now, he is
planning a career in law. We know God will use Michael in a mighty
way. Michael has already inspired us with his community aware-
ness, and we know that the Lord will help him to make the right
choices concerning his career.
Michael and Shannon, we wish both of you God's blessings and
that He will give you the strength you will need. We miss your
smiles and your laughter. Come to see us now and then.
NOW LET'S LOOK AHEAD
We are planning a cookbook this fall. It will be a money-making
project and the proceeds will go toward the purchase of computers
for the school. The cookbook will generate income through sales of
the book itself and through advertisement pages in the back of the
book. The prices for these pages are as follows: a whole page is
$55.00, a half page is $30.00,. one-fourth page is $20.00, and one-
sixth of a page is $15.00. In addition, there will be patron pages for
individual sponsors at a cost of $10.00 per name. Any business or
individual wishing to advertise, please call our cookbook coordina-
tor, Mrs. Kriss Heyer, at 648-5495. If you would like to submit your
favorite recipes please stop by the school office and pick up the
proper forms. We would greatly appreciate your help or contribu-
tions toward this worthy cause for our school.
