Tornado Touches Down Near Overstreet

Two Injured In One of Two Mobile Homes Destroyed By Sudden Twister

A rainstorm which dumped 1.32 inches of rainfall in the
Port St. Joe area Sunday afternoon, also had a small tornado
hitch-hiking along, which demolished a mobile home and a
travel trailer in the County Road 386 area on the Jarret Dan-
iel Road near where it crosses Wetappo Creek at about 1:00
Larry Wells, Civil Defense Director, said property damage
was limited to the two mobile homes, but that -two injuries
were reported as a result of the storm winds.
Mr. and Mrs. John Love were at home when the twister
struck their home and were injured as the home was blown
over and about 20 feet from its foundation before it was
dropped on its side and demolished. The travel trailer was
also demolished byt was unoccupied at the time.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Love were injured by flying debris and
the tumbling action of their mobile home. They were taken to

Gulf Pines Hospital for treatment, with Mrs. Love being re-
leased Monday and Mr. Love released Tuesday. A cockatoo
and two small dogs were tossed:about but not injured. Mr.
Love sustained broken ribs, bruises, cuts and abrasions. Mrs.
Love had a deep bruise on her knee, cuts and abrasions.
Mrs. Love told The Star, "It was just the will of the Lord
that we got out as well as we did. Our home is destroyed, but
neither one of us was hurt badly. It's an experience I don't
want to go. through again."
Mrs. Love said the witid twisted the trailer around twice,
turned it over and dumped it on its side. "And all 'the while,
we were inside, being tossed around." she said.
The Loves were assisted by their neighbors, Sheriffs De-
partment Captain Ray Richter and Civil Defense Director, Lar-
ry Wells.

County Board

Still Polarized

By Discord

Sides Drawn Among Members

Causes Dissension On Matter

The acrimony which has po-
larized the Gulf County Commis-
sion since the new members took
office has continued to fester and
have an affect on every meeting.
The division was brought to a
head -recently when the Board
changed attorneys in the middle
of a fiscal year, on a divided vote,
which drew up sides on the
With the board truly split
right down the middle, the divi-
sion pits Chairman Nathan Peters
and new members Michael Ham-
mond and Jessie Armstrong
against Billy Traylor and first-
termer Warren Yeager.
The agreement to disagree
continued into Tuesday night's
meeting with Commissioner Tray-
lor stating that the Board needed
to sign Its contract with newly-
appointed attorney. Pat Floyd.
Traylor said, 'V"We haven't accept-
ed a contract for Floyd to work
under. We made changes from
the original draft and never ac-
cepted the revised document after
it was changed."
Peters said it had been ac-
cepted, but Traylor challenged Pe-
ters' statement by reporting that
it wasn't In the minutes where
the Board had approved the
changes. Michael Hammond got
into the argument then, stating
that the Board had acted and de-
..leted. sctions-5A and-5B.-Traylor
insisted that the minutes did not
reflect what Peters and Hammond
were saying and that if the Board
wished to accept the changed
contract, any corrections should
be read aloud and voted on by
the Board in a formal vote.
IAttorney Floyd read the re-
vised contract and the Board
adopted it as work rules for their
The Commission heard a,
tongue lashing given them by
Greg Johnson, who spoke as a
concerned taxpayer. Johnson
said he was not happy with the
direction the Board was taking
and he thought it largely a waste
of tax money. "The JTPA fiasco is
one example. A trip to Washing-,
ton, D.C. for seven days by three
of the Board members at a cost to
the taxpayers of better than
$4,677 is another."
Johnson summed up his
charges with, "These items are-

just the tip of the iceberg and I
want you to know, that as a tax-
payer I don't like it!"
Both Chairman Peters and
Commissioner Hammond defend-
ed the trip to Washington. Peters
said, 'There are conferences going
on from which we can learn a
lot." Hammond said, 'There are
new sources of government funds
and we need to find out what
they are and how to go about get-
Ung them."
One source of new govern-
ment funds was delivered to.the
Board Tuesday night by Mike
Donovan of Apalachee Planning
Council. Donovan said the
County is eligible for $250,000 in
affordable housing funds for this
year. He said that the County just
needs to send in the proper re-
quest before the deadline, and
the money Is theirs to rehabilitate
sub-standard housing.
Julian Webb was present and
addressed the same subject, tell-
ing the board his organization
was geared up to make the appli-
cation for Gulf County and han-
dle the entire project through to
completion for an eight percent
fee. The grant allows up to 10%
for management fees.
The Board agreed on the rec-
ommendation of building officer,
Don Butler, to employ Webb's
out the project.
Donovan said his firm would
do the same thing, but that since
Webb was offering, 'We're happy.
We couldn't give you as much
service as he can do. We just no-
ticed other counties in our dis-
trict haven't applied and the
deadline is drawing near."
Another controversy devel-
oped over whether or not to allow
Bobby Knee, assistant to Public
Works Superintendent Bob Lest-
er, drive his County-owned pick-
up truck home after work.
Knee is in charge of the Road
Department and Lester said he
did it because Knee was on call
24-hours a day and often has to
be on duty after hours.
Chairman Peters directed
that Knee park the pick-up at
night at the Road Department
yard. "He can use his own vehicle

Bomb Damages

Mexico Beach

Structure Friday

A homemade pipe bomb exploded in the ladies' rest-
room in the Mexico Beach Park on the Boat Canal Friday
night, doing approximately $500 in damages to the
structure, according to Police Chief Jeff Sellers of Mexi-
co Beach.
Chief Sellers said two men, James Anthony Burkett,
21, and Marty Wayne Bryant, 21, were apprehended and
have been charged with the crime. He said a neighbor
saw smoke coming from the restroom building and saw
two men running from the structure and copied down
the license number from their car. The two were appre-
hended later, in Wewahitchka, by Gulf County Sheriff's
Deputy Stacy Strickland and turned over to the Mexico
Beach Police Department.
The bomb was made from a piece of galvanized pipe,
six inches long and three-quarters of an inch around. It
was placed on top of the lavatory in the ladies' rest
room and detonated, blowing a hole in the concrete wall,
shattering the lavatory and making several holes in a
plywood partition. Chief Sellers said the explosion also
lifted the roof of the building a couple of inches.
Sellers said the two suspects had another pipe bomb
in their possession when they were apprehended. It was
detonated by the Tyndall Air Force Base bomb squad.

S ,."-" ,"- -

The Gulf County Commission did some questionable maneu-
vering recently in hiring a new attorney to represent the Board.'
Let it be understood that we are neither favoring Bob Moore,
the.ousted attorney, nor t'atFloyd. the new attorney. So far'as
,we know, both are good, competent attorneys' and would do a
goodjob in representlng.the affairs bf Gulf County. ":' .
The method in which.the change wasi made would'have been
Just as wrong had the players'been reversed aid it'was Floyd be-
ing tossed out and-Moore retained. :
Let's take a long hard'look at what'fhey did. at least What
three of the members of the Board.did. First, it wa.evident they,
played personalities with the change. Second, they made the
change in the middle of, a. fiscal year. Third,, they;.set .the pay.
schedule so as to leave the County unprotected from high attor-
ney's fees. ,'" '
As to personalities coming to bear, we don't know but what it
might be better to seek out an.attorney who is'hot buddy-buddy
with the members of the Board. This situation .would remove, any ,
danger of allowing them to get away with anything which might
be right on the border of being questionable. Whereas, f Board
members 'and the attorney have a little acrimony going between
the two, the attorney is going to see that they toe the legal mark
right down the line. /
Next, the Board hasn't riiade a habit of removing a person
from his position duringrthe middle of a.fiscal year. The appoint-
ments are made at the beginning of a fiscal year and are good for
the entire year. Until now. Continuity of complicated court cases
are interrupted, especially when no transition time' is given to'fa;-
miliarize the new officer. Having three new members on the
Board also makes for a very shaky situation in legal matters.
Next comes thersalary. For years the Board has paid ,a re-
tainer fee. For the past several yeai-s-before Moore was hired by
the Board--the retainer has been around $10,000 a year. For
that money the attorney is expected to attend all meetings, regu-
lar and special, give legal advice at the meetings, and numerous
other tasks. Under the new schedule, the Board no longer pays a
retainer fee, but pays the attorney for all time spent on County
business at the rate of $75.00 an hour. As the average meeting
will last at least three hours [our experience in 40 years of at-
tending County meetings] twice a month. Then there are special
meetings scheduled almost weekly. The attorney becomes a qua-
si sixth member of the Board, whether he wishes the position or
We don't wish to see Pat Floyd treated by the Board in the'
future like Bob Moore .was treated in a special meeting two
weeks ago. :
-" By the way, that's another thing. Everything was in order to
make the change at a regular meeting, but the Commission
chairman refused to take the matter up until the next day, In a
special meeting, when the crowds and media would be absent.

,000 Fine for rNothi

,j S6,for. $20,000 wve get ,the Department of Environmental
.Rulation out of our.hair. The problem is, it cot o manytim s
more than $20,000. The total bill would probably be more like
100 times $20,000. And for the $20,000 the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant gets amnesty for all the past sins It is alleged by DER
to have committed.
Over the years, the desires or dreaming by DER that some-
thing was wrong has cost the City of Port St. Joe and other sub-
scribers to the Wastewater Treatment Plant services, millions of'
dollars digging up proof through records of performance that
they were not guilty as charged. Granted, the plant went over
its limits on about a half dozen instances in over two years, but
the instances were reported and they were instantly given atten-
ti6n by the City. There was no flagrant violation of the law,
which should be the only reason one governmental agency
should fine another. A good faith effort was actually made every
time a suggestion was made, to make things better. Port St. Joe,
had more to lose by an improperly operating plant, than did the
State of Florida.
We know it's a relief to the City Commission to have DER off
their back, no matter how little or how big a price they had to
pay. It's to the City Attorney's credit that the fine was negotiated
down as low as it' finally was. The City is no longer liable for
things which they might'have done in the past .. or left un-
Don't, however, think for a minute that DER won't be1 back
with more of their off-the-wall demands or ideas. Don't think we
are free of their eagle eye.

'to serve a four-year! term in, the White House. Now, all -we, the
American people,,can do is sit back (or up, or walk) and see if Presi-
dent Clinton can keep all of his campaign promises. O.K., we'll see
if he can keep half of them. Well, do you think one-fourth of them
would be asking too much?
If ypuget the feeling that I didn't vote for William Jefferson
Clinton, you're,right. But, as my momma used to say, that's water
under the:bridge., Mr. Clinton was elected President of the United
States .and Florida is one of them, so that makes Mr. Clinton my
President, .too;:,even though I didn't vote for him. I hope the day will
come when I wish I had voted for him.
With all due respect to President Clinton, he won't be the first
president Whq has promised us a bunch of things he would do if
elected and then not deliver. He and all the presidents before him
meant well, I think, but I wonder why they didn't say, "I promise I
will TRY' to do these things instead of promising something they
know deep down they can't deliver.
SI'qsay op thing for President Clinton; he knows how to throw
a party I've never seen so many celebrities in one town and all of
them singing and encouraging everyone to "re-unite" America. I'm
all for that and I hope 't happens, but singing and talking about it
and doing it are horses of a different color. I didn't hear one of them
mention how we were going to accomplish this grpat feat. Will all
the rioting and senseless killings just stop now that Mr. Clinton is
-President and a bunch of singers and movie stars have asked every-
one to stop. I hope so, but 1.doubt it.
Whatever the plan, I hope it works because something has to be
done and done quickly. Have you read about the students taking
guns to school with them and shooting other students? And what
about the two Junior high school girls who plotted to murder their
English teacher? Can you believe the rest of the class had over
$200 bet on whether they would do It or not? Can you believe this
kind of stuff is happening in America? Something is bad wrong,
folks, and I think it's with the parents of these misguided youn-
guns.. .
S But, speaking of President Clinton's celebration before and after
the inauguration, I've often wondered what kind of party Ross Perot
would have given if he had been elected. I'll bet it wouldn't have
been more than a barn dance and the theme song would have been
"Crazy." Talk about getting back to basics; Mr. Perot could take us
back to basics. I like him.
Now, dear hearts, let's turn' our attentionI to the poor. former
president, Mr. George Bush. As we all know, defeat is hard to take
and President Bush's life will probably never be the same. I'll bet ,
he's crying... all the way to the golf course and back. It's tough, the
life of a retired president, but someone has to do it, and now it's
President Bush's turn. I'll bet he wouldn't trade his position for a li-
cense to steal, and I don't blame him.
Anyway, it's all over but the crying. I don't know who's crying,
though, do you? President Bush is off on a happy., care-free retire-
ment. Ross Perot has more money than God and may run again
next term. President Clinton hasn't been in office long enough to re-
alize what a mess he's gotten himself in, so he's happy.
Do you know who that leaves? You and I. I ain't crying and I
hope you aren't either. Maybe we should be, but we'll just have to
wait and see.
In the meantime, good luck and God speed. Mr. President

Key factors in First Union's

"Older People Voting More.RobinSon

"It's the older people who are
actively voting," Supervisor of.
Elections Cora Sue Robinson told '
the Rotary Club last Thursday at'
their regular meeting.
Robinson had a breakdown of
voters of all, ages and the number
of votes cast out of each group, .
which revealed that the younger a '
registered voter was, the least
likely he is to cast his ballot. ,
Robinson said that in the;
general election of November,.
7A% J f th nlmJ a t8000 R

But the ages 21-25 had only
56% of their number cast a vote.'
By age category, the percentage of
voters actually casting a ballot-
went up steadily as the age cate-
gory became older.
Voters 18-20 voted 56%, 20-'
25, 51%; 26-35', 67%; 36-45,;
71%; 46-55. 83%: 56-65, 85%;
65-75, 85%; 76-85. 75%; 86-99.
over 60%.
Roberson said that the state

of Florida is making it mandatory
that every county go to the' voting'
system used by Gulf County for,
the past two elections. 'The old
voting machines are being de-
clared illegal in Florida," she.said..
The Supervisor said the new
paper, ballot method with elec-
tronic counting is faster and nore
accurate than the old machines.
"We had a malfunction in a ma-
chine once in the Overstreet pre-.

cinct which failed to record any
yotes for the Superintendent of
Schools and we had no way of
knowing it wasn't recording until
the election wab over and the
votes were being counted. If it
had been a close election Gulf
:County would have had to bear
the expense of another election
just for that question," she said.

HAMS Reorganizing In Gulf County

Will Be Known
Amateur Radio Operators
(known as HAMS) in Gulf County
have been joining together the
past few months to reorganize the
Gulf Amateur Radio Society.
The organization was first
formed in 1981. The primary ob-
jective was to assist in emergency
communications during times of
disaster. The organization, better
known as GARS, did so in 1985
during Hurricane Kate. Commu-
nications failed at the Apalachico-
la Weather Bureau during Kate.
GARS backed.up the weather bu-
reau's communications by plac-
ing a volunteer HAM radio opera-
tor in the weather station with
emergency radio equipment. In-
formation about the storm was
relayed from Apalachicola via
HAMS in Port St. Joe to the Talla-
hassee Weather Bureau and from
there to Miami Weather. That
young HAM operator was Scott

GARS has been inactive since
August of 1989. Old and new
members alike have reorganized.
The primary objective is still the
same, emergency communication
services. Meetings have been held
with Gulf County Civil Defense
Director Larry Wells in prepara-
tion of the new GARS.
Officers for 1993 were elected
at the January 14th meeting.
They are as follows: Bernie Prid-
geon, president (KD4PDU); Jim
Buchanan, vice-president
(WB4QBW); Chris Buchanan,
secretary-treasurer (KD4RZP);
Nils Millergren, net manager
"Approximately 15 amateur
operators were present at the first
meeting of the 1993 year," ac-
cording to Pridgeon. Several oper-
ators from Wewahitchka and Port
St. Joe attended. The club has at-
tracted attention from the Mexico
Beach area as well as Franklin
County operators.

The Day I Went Hunting
By Carl Hopper
One day I went hunting. We
were tracking for a deer track. We
saw a deer track, it was big. We
all said it was a buck because it
was so big. So we put the dogs
out. The dogs were running. We
all watched them. We went to an-
other road. And they said the
dogs 'were going to the canal.
They swam the canal. And then
they swam the canal back again.
We saw the deer, it was an
eight point. We had the deer
when he jumped the canal. He
jumped and we all shot. At last
we had some meat We all partied
around the bon fire.

Underlining Old Cliche "One Man's Trash Is Another
Man's Treasure" -Finds Are Often Very Valuable

You may find a small fortune
when you clean house, says au-
thor Tony Hyman.
Only one or two people each
year become instant millionaires
as a result of finding an old paint-
ing or antique, "but a staggering
number of people find' things
worth $50 to $500," Hyman re-
ports, digging into his file cabinet
ofletters. ,
I rescued ,my husband's
trash can," wrote Elsie Gordon opf
Del Ray Beach, "after he cleaned
out the garage of old car manu-
als, snapshots of car -races,.
greasy brochures, lots of dog-
eared books, broken model cars,
e tc. .." .
Elsie made a list of what, her
husband threw away, and sent it
to Walter Miller in Syracuse, New
York, requesting an offer.
"I expected about $10, so was
thrilled to get his check for $250."
Elsie is one of. a growing
number of people converting cast-
offs to cash by mail. Hyman says,
because it Is quick, easy, conven-,
lent and profitable.
"Lots of people can .use an ex-,
tra $250 .right now," Hyman
points out, "and selling your lefto-
vers. souvenirs, and other things
you no"longer need makes'a lot of

items can be converted to qilck
cash. .
"Unfortunately. people read-
ing this interview don't have the
foggiest idea of what those items
are or who wants them," says Hy-
man, "so instead of cashing in,
they toss them out or sell them
for pennies at yard sales.

You could be throwing away

Is the Groundhog
Really a Good
Weather Forecaster?
The superstition that an ani-
mal can forecast the weather goes
back many years.
German farmers, who
watched badgers in their own
country, brought- the idea to-
Our annual event began on
February 2nd in Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania on Gobbler's
Knob to be exact. '
There were no badgers in the
eastern part of the country, so
they decided to use the ground-
hog an animal that reminded
them of the badger. (Actually, a
porcupine seems closer.)
Can this animal really fore-
cast six more weeks of winter?
Maybe you can decide for
yourself by keeping track of the
goings-on on February 2nd.
Make your own weather
diary; it might be fun to see if you
and the groundhog agree
Europeans believed that the
weather on February 2nd always
Indicated a reversal.
For example, good weather
meant a long winter, while clouds
Indicated an early spring.
(Thus, when a groundhog
sees his shadow, the sun is out,
and; there will be six more weeks
of winter.)

We are not talking about phony bills and coins that are J
'being illegally circulated but rather the potentially more
explosive problem of counterfeit drugs. This is presently on
the increase and it could lead to chaos in the marketing of
| new drugs as well as resulting inevitably in a serious public
health hazard.
Counterfeit drugs are made illegally without any quality
controls and under the poorest manufacturing conditions,
The resulting drugs are sub-standard, more often than not
without effective potency and subject to harmful
contamination. A pharmacy only purchases their stocks of I
drugs from legal and licensed sources. You should also
follow this practice.

Dental Health




By the time your child is five
or six, all of his primary teeth will
have formed. Then the process
begins of acquiring the perma-
nent teeth that can last a lifetime
with good dental care.
As the primary teeth gradu-
ally loosen and fall out, they are
soon replaced with permanent
teeth. But what about a primary
molar tooth that is lost well
ahead of its time, long before
the permanent tooth is ready to
replace it? This can be caused
by accident or disease or decay.
If that space remains vacant
for a long time, the teeth on ei-
ther side of it will try to fill the

space. This will throw them out
of line and may cause the per-
manent teeth to come in
To protect your child's per-
manent teeth, any primary molar
tooth lost ahead of time should
be replaced by a space main-
tainer until the permanent tooth
is ready to erupt. If this should
happen to your child, see your
dentist for treatment.

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

High School
By Larry A. Mathes

Parents and interested citizens have received via their students
a survey form which we need as part of our school improvement
plan. Please fill this out as best you can and return it to the High
School office as soon as possible. Students will fill one out at
school. Take the time to do this it is Important! If you failed to
get one, please come by the school and pick up one. It will only take
a few minutes.
Well, last week it finally happened. In airline lingo, we got
bumpedll Due to space limitations, our article was cut. However,
since The Star is nice enough .t6 print this most weeks free of
charge, we will keep trying. A little from last week and some from
this week out to do it.
ParentI please look at Progress Reports and call the school if
there seems to be problems. Help is available to students, but it
usually takls a push from parents to ask for their help.
Pre-planning has started for the Student Excellence Award
Banquet. I hope your student receives an invitation for achievement
and that you as parents will plan to attend. Sorry, space limitations
force us to invite parents only, and the spaces may not be allocated
to other family or friends.,
We are often asked why we're in school when others take a holi-
day. Our system has elected for years not to take off individual holi-
days other than the traditional, ones, opting instead to take these
holidays at the end of the school year, thereby getting out of school
several weeks early. In other words, "pay now or pay later." The
state says you go 180 days when you go is up to the system.
Fourteen Wewahitchka High School Band members accompa-
nied Terry Stryker to the District Honor Band at Blountstown High
School January 21-23. Congratulations on ,a fine performance.
Plans are being discussed for a combined WHS-PSJHS performance
at several schools. More about this later.
It rates a headline Tim Hammon, Language Arts instructor,
has been chosen as WHS' Teacher of the Year. If selected as the
District's representative, Mr. Hammon will then enter state competl- ;
tion. Good luckl
Science Fair January 28th and 29th -- -open to parts thnd
public Thursday night from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please come out and :
see the show. Don Rich and Dawn Grace are the sponsors.
'There's still lots of basketball to see (both 'sexes), and baseball,
softball, and track are waiting in the wings.
Please send or bring that survey form to the high school. We
need a good response.

A soil test could spell the dif-
ference between success and fail-
ure for those planning to plant a[
spring vegetable garden. All too
often, gardeners assume an appli-
cation of fertilizer and a helping
of lime is just what the doctor or-
dered for a beautiful harvest. This
might be the case for some gar-
dens. But, for others those steps,
could lead to trouble and unnec-
essary expense, A soil test is the,
only way'to determine your gar-
den'S exact needs.
A soil test can be an invalua-
ble guide for home vegetable gar-
deners. It will indicate the soil's
content of available nitrogen;,
phosphorus, potassium. calcium
and magnesium. The test will
also determine the soils pH, the
degree of acidity or alkalinity. By
analyzing the results, a soil tech-
nologist can recommend the lim-
ing and fertilizing practices that
will produce the best growing

The first step is taking a sam-
ple,, which is relatively easy.
Check with your. County Exten-
sion office concerning sampling
bags, tools, and testing services.
Using a sampling auger, or a
shovel, take cores of soil six inch-
es deep from at least 15 different
spots in your'garden. Avoid unu-
sual areas, such as wet spots and
burn, piles. Thoroughly mix these
cores together to make one repre-
sentative sample. Place the mix-
ture in a sampling bag, complete
the accompanying information
sheet and place in box, and deliv-
er the sample for testing.
The soil pH. Indicated by the
test, will determine the need for
lime. Most vegetables grow best
in a soil with a pH between 5.5
and 6.5, a. level that's slightly
acid, or "sour". A pH of 7.0 is
neutral. 7.1 or above is alkaline,
or "sweet". If a test indicates your
garden is too acid, the: laboratory
probably will recommend an ap-
plicatlon of lime to reduce soil
Carefully follow the laborato-
ry's recommendations concerning
the amount of lime to add. Too
much may be just as bad as too
little. Be- sure you allow enough
time to add the lime before plant-
ing. Dolomite is a good liming,
agent. But, because it reacts-
slowly. it should be applied two
or three months prior to planting.
If you're In a hurry, use hydrated
lime. It can be applied-only two
weeks before planting, provided
It's thoroughly mixed with the
Although a soil test provides
vital information on fertilization
and liming, there's a lot it won't
reveal. For example, a soil -test
doesn't show the presence of in-
sects, nematodes, or disease or-
ganisms. It .cannot determine
whether your garden is too wet or
too dry. So. it's .ju.st part. of a
sound management.'program. You
also must choose the proper crop
varieties, buy good seed, plant at
the right time, water properly,
and control pests and diseases.
Reviewing briefly, a soil test.
will indicate the relative amounts
of, nitrogen, phosphorus, potas-
sium, calcium, and magnesium
in your garden plot, as well as the
pH level. You can use this infor-
mation to determine how much, of
a particular analysis fertilizer,
Sand the quantity of lime, if any,
to apply. Taking a soil ample is a
simple process you can perform
yourself, with advice from your
-.County Extension office.

Health Advisory
The Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS),
The Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission (GFWFC), and the Depart-
ment of Environmental Regulation (DER) have jointly announced a mer-
cury health advisory for 32 Florida waterways which includes the Dead
Lakes, St. Vincent Wildlife Refuge in Calhoun and Gulf counties, Crooked
River and Apalachicola River in Franklin County.
The advisory urges limitations on the consumption of largemouth
bass, as well as bowfish mudfishh) and gar because they accumulate mer-
cury in the same way as largemouth bass.
"Mercury is easily absorbed by humans when they eat contaminated
fish," sated HRS Deputy Secretary for Health and State Health Officer Dr.
Charles S. Mahan. "Eating mercury contaminated fish on a regular basis
can cause toxic effects to the central nervous system. Children and preg-
nant and nursing wonien are at the greatest risk."
Dr. Mahan added that fish caught from streams containing an aver-
age of 0.5 ppm of mercury should not be consumed more than once per
week by adults or more than once per month by women of childbearing
age or children. The advisory recommends that fish having less than 0.5
ppm of mercury represents no dietary risk and fish containing 0.5 ppm
to 1.5 ppm should be consumed only in limited amounts. None of the wa-
ter bodies covered by the advisory were found to be at the level of mercu-
ry contamination where :no consumption of bass is advised; problems of
that severity remain essentially limited to the Everglades.
This advisory brings to 68 the total number of Florida waterways un-
der a health advisory for mercury. Forty-seven waterways have been
identified as having less than 0.5 ppm of mercury and are acceptable for
unrestricted consumption of largemouth bass and other fish.
The tests are conducted by measuring mercury in the edible part of
largemouth bass.
Fish tested in the Dead Lakes contained an average 0.91 ppm while
Crooked River fish contained an average of 0.80 ppm.,Apalachicola River
fish contained an average 0.47 ppm. St. Vincent Island fish contained an
average of 0.22 ppm.
The advisory is part of the effort of the state's Mercury in Fish and
Wildlife Task Force and the agencies on that task force. The task force
has been working towards testing the mercury status of Florida waters
and listing mercury advisories for water bodies in the state. Other re-
search is being sponsored by the task force, the U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, and the utility industry to find the sources of mercury in
Florida's environment and solutions to the problems.
