Traylor Drums Up Support from Area County Government
Madison Street, in Oak Grove, is no longer a
through street with no traffic controls except a speed
limit. This stop sign requires motorists to come- to a
complete halt at Jackson Street.
On Madison Street
Acting on the suggestions of Guy Gammill a resident of
Oak Grove, the Gulf County Commission took steps to pre-
vent future fatal accidents along Madison Street, this week.
Gammill appeared before the County Commission meeting
Monday of last week and asked the Board to consider plac-
ing the 4-way stop sign at Madison and Jackson "to inter-
rupt the flow of traffic to and from the High School."
"After the tragedy of last Sunday, something needs to
be done about the traffic on the street,"' Gammill said. "If
the school bus is bringing students to the school, it goes
up Madison Street. If an athletic team is coming back from
a trip, they go up Madison- Street. Traffic from athletic
events use the street to get to the highway. It's a heavily
traveled street," Gammill said.
The intersection resulted in the death,of a four-year-old
boy, who died Friday, following Injuries after being struck
by a car on Sunday, June 6, about noon.
Little Jonathan Thumm ran out from behind a parked
car, on the shoulder of the street, into the path of a car
driven by James Bennett. Bennett wasn't'speeding, accord-
ing to the Florida Highway Patrol. The child darted into the
street, directly in front of his car. The Patrol ruled the -acci-

Disaster Averted Tuesday
Gasoline Fumes Detected Coming from Downtown Sewer
The Port St. Joe Fire Depart-
ment took precautions to prevent
a possible explosive: disaster
Tuesday at noon, when gasoline
fumes were detected as coming
from a sewer In the alley in the.
200 block of Relid Avenue. -
Alerted by a strong smell of
gasoline in at least three business
firms on Reid Avenue, the depart-
ment.traced the origin of the odor
to the sanitary sewer which runs
in the alley behind the buildings.
Pin-pointing the smell about the
middle of the block, the firemen
then flushed the sewer with
2,000 gallons of foam, to dilute
any gasoline in the sewer and
prevent any danger from the fuel.
The source of the gasoline
was never located, after an in-
tense investigation. City Fire Mar-

have been accidental. No estimate
was given about how many gal-

What does one do when he gets tired of be-

simply one stiff joint after another; when it's
just one back out of joint after another; you
can try buildiiig a sailboat for therapy.
That's what Dr. Rudy Sechez, who practices
Chiropractic at his residence at the comer of
Monument and 13th Street, does.
Dr. Sechez decided late last year he wanted
to build a sailboat. Doesn't everyone make deci-
sipns like that? Just casually remark over a
bowl of oatmeal some bright morning, "Honey,
I'm going to build a sailboat." Those were Se-
chez' remarks to his wife.
His wife thought he was touched in the
head, but went along with the project through
the building of a model, just large enough for
one person to get in. The model was completed
last fall and Sechez talked his wife into being
the first to ride-or, float-in it, in St. Joseph's
Bay. Just Mrs. Sechez and an oar against the

President Clinton is catching all kinds of
flack from the columnists for backing down on
some of the appointments and programs, he has
suggested to Congress for approval. They say it
shows a lack of resolve and toughness, always
to be backing down. We say it shows a lack of
thorough investigation and planning before his
appointments or programs are presented.
What are the pros and cons? What will be
the ramifications? Will it be productive toward
the goal or counter-productive? Who made the
suggestion in the first place, and what axe does
he have to grind? These questions should be
given consideration prior to any appointments.
One of President Clinton's poorest selec-
tions, which he ultimately withdrew, was the
nomination of Lani Guinier as head of the Jus-
tice Department's. Civil Rights Division. We've
never met Mrs. Guinier. All we know of the lady
is .what we have read and what we have read
verifies she is a very knowledgeable individual.
A lady with brains and looks. She is the kind of
person almost anybody would like as a friend.
Except David Duke. Her political activities
wouldn't allow her to be a friend of David Duke..
But neither can you consider her for a post
which must make decisions based on the mner-
its of the evidence, the effects it will have on
everyone; in this instance the entire United
States and all its myriads of people.
You see, any matter placed before Mrs. Gui-
nier would almost be decided before it was pre-
sented, depending whether or not it was going
to favor African-Americans. You see, her de-
partment is designed to protect the rights for
every race, not one more so than the other.
Mrs. Guinier's proposed appointment was
to have .been for the purpose of protecting the
rights of the black race, it's true, but it's also to
protect the rights of white people, Chinese, In-
dians, American Indians, Puerto Ricans; Lati-
nos and on and on, ad infinitum.
Mrs. Guinier's looking with favor upon the
black race's interests almost exclusively is the
tendency which spelled her being turned down
It's Better to Look Before You Leap
for the office. No other reason.
If David Duke had been the nominee for the
,,post, we feel. he would have been given the'
same treatment-for exactly the same reason-
and he would deserve to be denied the post.,
Nobody with pre-conceived opinions one way or
another should be placed in these sensitive
posts. It is the staffing of these positions with
pre-conceived opinions in the past which has
.caused such a hard polarization of our nation
at the present. If every American's right were
considered as they should.be in making these
rights and protection decisions we would have
a more charitable situation between the poly-
glot of peoples who make up our supposedly
We admire the President for withdrawing ill-
advised appointments before they are installed
to sensitive positions and cause us more harm
with their good intentions.
Out with SmokingLamp In Gulf County
Smoking and the continued use of tobacco
products in public places is continuing to bear ,.,
the brunt of criticism among health officials'
and citizens all over the nation.
Baseball is beginning to ban chewing by the
players because of the health problems in-
volved with the product and' the message it ,
passes on to young children. With the matter of
baseball players, they should also put the
'players out of the game for use of drugs and
other controlled substances as recreational in-
gestions. Think what a message this sends to -
young children. If players such as those in the
news can't conduct themselves as gentlemen
and keep their lives clean, we don't need them
influencing our children. That also goes for,
basketball's heroes, as well as football.
But, we digress.
Back to the subject, which started out to be
the Gulf County Commission commiserating
over whether or not to ban smoking in all
County buildings,, which are ex officio public
buildings. There should be no agonizing over
this decision. It should be clear-cut and as
plain as the nose on Sheriff Harrtson's face..
Smoking should be banned in all County build-
We enjoy the smell of a good cigar and pipe
being enjoyed by someone else,, but many do
not and should not have to be subjected to it in
a building they paid as much for with their tax-
es as we did with ours.
' We don't enjoy the stink, of a burning cigar-
ette, but to some it smells like ambrosia-
prospective cancer and all. Since we are expect-
ed to. enter public buildings to cover stories and
you are expected to enter to keep abreast of
.what's going on with 'your public officials, we
should not have to have our nostrils stop.up;
run, eyes water and come away smelling like a
coke furnace in order to do our job or duty.
Nor should people have to subject them-
selves to second-hand cigarette smoke, which
has been proven to be the leading cause of lung
cancer among our people. i
The concern that a few bingo players will be
dissatisfied if their butts are out of bounds in a
public building such as a fire station, then they
are not real true bingo players or they are too
addicted to a weed if they can't do without one
for a couple of hours. That person should make
an honest attempt to quit!
We think the County Commission' is right
on target with this requirement; especially in
buildings under their control. We re not going
to say it is a law all over the land diat there will
be no smoking in public buildings because we
don't know. But we do know it is within the
Commission's puryiew to adopt such a law and
the quicker the better.

IT'S HOT AND DRY and the

People are bothered with the pes-

their houses and on their pets.
It's those people who have inside
pets and let them outside periodi-
cally who really have a problem.
The dry season makes the
fleas congregate in the bare dirt
areas in the yard and the hot
weather makes them want to
hitch a ride on the first pet which
rolls in their temporary home of
bare, loose, warm sand and come
inside where It is air conditioned.

Room with a Dog and You re Liable to Get Fleas
By Wesley Ramsey
THE OTHER DAY, the dog
was hemmed up for a bath and
Frenchie happened to remark,
"This dog was just bathed and
treated for fleas less than a week
ago, and already, she's covered
with them again."
The dog stays inside most of ,
the time, so she can pierce my
ears with her barking when some-
body drives up in the yard or
comes to the door. This is the
same dog which let a prowler
come up in the carport just out-
side my bedroom window, bang
on the locked car door, nearly
knocked off a side mirror trying
to break a vent window and get
inside. The dog didn't utter a

But the dog is attracting
She is evidently bringing fleas
into the house. The only signs I
have seen is on the dog herself.
THE OTHER NIGHT I awoke
in the middle of the night for a
nocturnal journey and I stumbled
through the bedroom, in the dark
and stepped on the dog's foot.
She was in our bedroom lying on
the rug sleeping. Just because I
'stepped on her, she snapped at

From instinct, I kicked out
with the foot and hit the dog in
the rump. She dodged, only re-
ceiving a glancing blow and then
moved over to let me pass.
Well, that event went well
enough,' but when I got back in
bed, I kept imagining I could feel
something crawling on my leg
and in the middle of my back
where I couldn't reach with my
hand to scratch. Recalling the
discourse about the dog being at-
tractive to fleas and possessive of
an active imagination, I just put
two and two together and. got at
least ten ... fleas. "
I TOSSED 'AND turned' and
attempted to scratch my back
just as long as I could stand it.
About two minutes. Then I got up
again, with a purpose and headed
to the bathroom again. This time
it was to turn on the light 'and
search for the origination' of need
to scratch, if it was indeed a flea.
As it turned out, it wasn't.
I rubbed the small of my back
against the door Jamb to get relief
from that discomfort, turned out
the light and went back to bed.'
It isn't easy to dismiss some-
thing like a flea invasion, of your

have gone to the bathroom,

THERE'S NO USE suggesting
that the dog sleep at least outside
of the bedroom door at night. You
see that's 'Frenchie's dog. If I
would attempt to persuade her to
allow the dog to sleep on the
porch, at least until the flea epi-
demic passed, I'-m probably the
one who would wind up sleeping
on the porch until the flea season
was over, if the thought of having
them jump on my body during
the night bothered me so much.
The dog gets preferences at
our house. For instance I eat
*Sunday's dinner until it is gone,
even if it takes until the following
Sunday. The dog g its fresh food
for every meal. Not just every day;
It's all right if the dog barks
,and makes excessive. noise and

above the noise made by the dish

disposal). "Don't bring sawdust in
on your clothes." But let the dog
bring in fleas and it's, "That's just
being a dog. She can't help it."

Don't Forget To Say Good-bye
It has taken me many years to realize how short and tenuous
life really is. Up until a few years ago, I thought I would somehow
live forever; or death, it seemed, was niany light years away-too far
away for me to plan for it.
In the past few years I have somehow paid much more atten-
tion to the obituary page in the paper. I've noticed that each day
there are death announcements of people who have passed on that
were my age and many younger. I've often wondered what hap-
pened to them; Was it cancer, a sudden heart attack, or some other
fatal Illness? Usually, the announcement tells us if they died as the
result of a traffic accident, but not that many do.
I have often thought of the unknown families that \were left be-
hind when I've read about people dying. And, to me, it didn't matter
if the deceased was rich or poor, an outstanding member of the
community or not. The Important thing is they were gone and left a
vacant place where a person once lived and loved. They left a trail of
sorrow with their departure.
Two weeks ago today my next-to-the-youngest sister departed
this earth. Although she had been sick, her death was sudden and
unexpected and she left a host of relatives and friends staring at
their hands in disbelief. She was too young and much, much too
good to leave us at such an early hour. But travel plans of this kind
are arranged by one greater than you and I.
I hereby dedicate this article to my sister, Fredda Mae Hutchin-
son. She was a wonderful woman in all respects. Her life was dedi-
cated to her family; her husband, Marvin; her daughter, Cathy;
son-in-law, Randy; and, especially, her granddaughter, Jenna Peel.
There could never be a better sister, cousin, aunt, or any relative
than she was. She was also a dedicated and loving friend.
Admittedly, our family is a close-knit one. Fredda was one of
the main reasons we were close. If anyone needed anything in our
family, they didn't need to call Fredda and ask, she was usually
there before they had a chance to call. Our family history will reveal
that her husband was cut from the same fine material. I sincerely
believe there were no two people who did more for family and
friends than Fredda and Marvin Hutchinson.
Her death was a terrible tragedy to all of us, -family and friends.
She had made herself almost Indispensable. Since Marvin retired
several years ago, they were constantly going here and there, help-
ing do this for a relative or friend who was sick or just-had a job
that they needed some help with. And the price was always the
A little over two years ago, she and Marvin came to Port St. Joe,
and for three days (with the help of my brother. Rufus) helped re-'
model all the rooms in our hotel. When they departed I put $50.00
in an envelope to cover their expenses coming to Port St. Joe and
going back home. Last Sunday Marvin gave me that same envelope
with the same fifty dollars in it that she had kept all this time.
The last time I saw her, there was .no inkling of her impending
death, although she was in the hospital. When I started to leave, I
hugged her and told her I loved her and I would be back soon to
visit with her at home. -
I called her the following Monday and her spirits were high.
When we finished talking, I told her I loved her and then said good-
bye. I'm so glad I did.
Don't you forget to do the same thing with the ones you lovely

PRIDE Program Inaugurated

Two teachers at Port St. Joe
High School are introducing a
program to encourage effort in
every area of school life by stu-
dents with rewards to be offered
ak the incentive.
, Laurel Whitfield and Carolyn
Rfh are the "mothers" of this
new program, entitled "Personal
Responsibility In Daily Effort," or
The program is offered to eve-
ry student, regardless of academ-
ic or citizenship achievement with
the encouragement to do better in
tleZ pupil's school life. The re-
wards are special achievement
pIns, ta day off from school now
an'd then and other .small but
,. There are several measure-
n;ents of achievement under the
PJIDE program. Just .5 on a
grade Improvement will draw no-
tice and give a student credit. No
disciplinary action taken against
a student during a six-week peri-
od earns credits. No absentees
above the limit allowed by the
pvIogram, earns still more credits.
The program is designed to
ac-w the student, his teachers
arid parents to work together to
gain more positive results out of
his trip through the Port St. Joe
Both Whitfield and Rish said
at school districts which have
introduced the PRIDE program to
the students in their schools have
seen improved grade point aver-
ages, better behaviour and a less-
er percentage of dropouts.
Each student achieving some
improvement listed in the pro-
gram will be given public notice
at some school event 'We may
even introduce a PRIDE recogni-
tion program," said Whitfield.,
Rish pointed out that "all stu-
dents cannot be straight A stu-
dents to earn that recognition,
but that all students can partici-
pate in bettering themselves,
working against their own
records, thus gaining recognition

New students-if you've recently moved into the Wewa area and
plan to register in grades 7-12, please call 639-2229 to set up an
appointment to register. Please don't wait to the opening of school
(Aug. 12, 1993) to try to register. It gets more complicated every
Summer school is moving along. The 2nd session (semester) be-
gins June 21, 7:30" a.m., and most of our summer school this year
needed the 2nd semester's work.
Whatever happened to the days when school started after Labor
Day and got out the end of May, with June. July, and August set
aside for summer vacation??
Any prospective athletes in the area (new) need to meet Coach
Flowers at the high school soon. He'll be glad to see any new pros-
pects, especially if they happen to run the 40 in 4.5 seconds or so
(he'll accept a little slower the closer they get to 200 + lbs.).. He's
still searching for a 10th game. Although it has been low-key, Wewa
and St. Joe will renew the old rivalry this year in Wewa. With one
year off to try to rebuild, the Gators should be a little stronger, but
no one rebuilds in. one year-much hard work ahead! And there's
no truth to the rumor that St. Joe's Coach resigned because he
heard he again had to play Wewall Just kidding-Coach John Hicks
is returning to a larger school he previously served because it offers
him a substantial chance for advancement. Coaches, like all others,
have to consider what's best for their families. Good luck to,Coach
Hicks, and to St. Joe High School as they attempt to replace him.
Question of the week-how do you convince students that edu-
cation is important enough to care about how well they do? One an-
swer is that parents have to convince their students that it isn't
something that comes easy or something that schools are supposed
to just give them. The students that care generally have parents
that care, rather than just using schools as a babysitting service.
All we can do is provide them every opportunity possible to learn-
remove as many obstacles as we can, so that there are no excuses
left. The rest has to be up to the student-somehow, they have to

Two new freshwater fishing
regulations will go into effect in
Northwest Florida next month ac-
cording to the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.
Beginning July 1, Lake Tal-
quin anglers will have to release
all crappie (speckled perch) under
10 inches long. Commission biol-
ogists believe the regulation on
the 8,800-acre reservoir near Tal-
lahassee will help develop a high-
er quality crappie fishery.
Biologist Richard Cailtefix
said the size limit will help spread
out the harvest of crappie over a
longer period of time, thus elimi-
nating a "boom or bust" type fish-
ery that has been common on
Lake Talquin in the past.
Also .beginning July 1, an-
glers may keep only three striped
bass more than 18 inches long in
the Suwannee River.
The aggregate daily bag limit
of stripers, white and sunshine
bass in this area will remain at
20, of which only three can be

regulation is designed to enhance

THE COURIER'S WORDS
On the passage of the ship
Anaxander, from New Orleans to
New York, a young lad about 14
years, from a naturally frolick-
some and mischievlous disposi-
tion, be, came so troublesome In
his pranks, that it! was threat-
ended by the Capt if they were
continued, that he would confine
him in a water cask.
Our youngster took no heed
however, and at his next offence
was put in the cask, which was
headed up, [top fastened on] leav-
ing a large bung hole for the ad-
mission of air.
That night the ship encoun-
tered a. violent storm and in a
sudden lurch the cask containing
the boy rolled over into the sea.
The circumstance was not no-
ticed by those on board.
Fortunately, the cask struck'
bung up, and floated about thirty
hours, when it was thrown upon
the beach at Cape St. Blas. Here
the boy made desperate efforts to
extricate himself from his prison"
