The Gulf County Commissionr
took its engineer's advice Tuesday
night, and awarded a $516.000
contract to Air Environmental Re-
sources to build the new White
City water system. Ralph Rish, of
Preble-Rish, Engineers. listed sev-
eral items of concern as well as in
support of the finn. which is.
owned by Ed Hill. with headquar-
ters at Howard Creek.
Rish laid both sides of the
coin before the Commission and
suggested that the weight was
balanced in Hills favor. "He didn't
have the type license we required
to build the system when he bid.
He didn't carry enough bonded
insurance when he bid, but he
has since acquired more than
enough. He didn't have much ex-
perience with pipeline installation
and he made several errors in his
On the plus side. Rish said.
"Some of the ,other bidders, with
years of experience, work under
, the same type license Hill listed.
Th'e bondlng'has been brought up
to requirements and he'll, have to
live with his errors on the bid.
Our finn has supervised projects
he has done for the City of Wewa-
hitchka and never had any trou-
ble with his workmanship."
Rish then went on to recom-
mend awarding the contract to
Hill, and a contract to build an
above-ground pressure tank to
C&B Mechanical of Blountstown.
Commissioner Michael Ham-
mond;#'a resident of White City,
Swas 'ager for Hill to begin work
"'.and made the motion for him to
-''eIelve--the -contract-r suggesting
he get right with it.
Commissioner Hammond
Wasn't, so eager to pay a $44.000
debt the, County owed Fisher
Construction Company of Wewa-
hitchka, however. The young
freshman Conmnisioner used fili-
buster tactics on the Board for
about 30 minutes, to keep them
from paying the firm for a new,
roof placed on the Courthouse.
Hammond's reason for not
wanting to pay. Fisher was. be-
cause a 20-year warranty they
had paid $8,000 extra to secure,
had too many loop, holes in its list
of exclusions for which it was not
responsible. Hammond felt there
should be no exclusions. The
warranty was from the roofing
material manufacturing finn and
covered both material and labor.
Ralph Fisher, present at the
meeting, said, 'Those are stan-
dard exclusions. You would have
saved $8,000 if you had taken a
12 yearwarranty and would have
had the very. same exclusions.
This is an old"and reliable compa-

ny. They always back up what
theyisay they will do."
Commissioner Billy Traylor
said, 'You shouldn't have -voted
fqr this project if the warranty
didn't suit yotu.,This is no time to
be questioning the warranty. The
job is done and whether or not we
approve f the language in the
wraranty, we owe the Fisher firm
for doing the work."
Hammond claimed there were
leaks in the Courthouse. after.the
roofing work was done. Building
Inspector Don Butler said he had
inspected the building for the
source of. the leaks, and found
most of them were coming from
deteriorated gaskets around the
top floor windows. "We had one
bad spot in the roofing, but Fish-
er repaired that one and, it
stopped," Butler said. "
In spite of Hammond's con-
tinued objections the Board voted
to pay Fisher the money owed
him for the new roof.
Sheriff Al Harrison reminded
the Commission they still had a
solid waste problem, even though

they are officially out of the col-
lection business.
Harrison said, 'The, tourists
at the beach want someplace they
can put their garbage before they
leave." The Sheriff went on to say
he had seen a tourist trying to
place trash in a dumpster and
complain because there, wasn't
room in the dumpster for her de-
posit. "I want some place to put
my trash where it will be collect-
ed," he, reported the tourist as
'These are good folks, want-
ing to properly dispose of their
trash. They're not trying to mess
up the County," Harrison said.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
said, "We're working on that now.
We're researching a plan to make
the subscription, to a pick-up ser-'I
vice mandatory for every building
in the county, which will take
care of that problem and others
of similar nature which we have."

Will Re-Apprtionment

Be Next In Our Fure
Gulf County will take the first tentative step for re-aligning
its Commission districts at a workshop, tentatively'scheduled for
Next week. ........,-".. .-. ."
The Commission will invite Supervisor of Elections. Cora Sue
Robinson and representatives from the School Board to attend
the workshop as a prelude to possible re-apportionment.
Florida's Constitution requires every county in the. state to
re-apportion its districts after every census count is taken at the
beginning of each new decade. The re-alignment is to be accom-
plished in odd-numbered years to avoid as much disruption as
possible with the terms of seated commissioners. The last timer
Gulf County was divided tp into new districts was in 1985,
when the districts were set by the courts to meet requirements
for a minority representative on both the County Commission
and the School Board.
Commissioner Michael Hammond is insistent that the.dis-
tricts be re-shuffled immediately, to re-district the population in
each of the five divisions.
Attorney Pat Floyd advised the Commission of the necessity
of following the Constitution in the matter, advising the Board,
"It isn't necessary that you re-apportion so long as you have no
objections to things as they are. But, if the population count is
as uneven as you say it is, you might better go ahead and do it,
whether you want to or not.."
The workshop will take a look at population counts by
present districts and see how they could be changed to make
them more even. Attorney Floyd said the State Constitution al-
lows for a i10% leeway in population.

Strange Species

Examined Here

As Food Source

Epcot Chefs Scrounge Trash Fish
at Raffield's for Future Tidbits
I Pity the poor pussy cat. His food supply is bound to face
pressure from the human food processors in the future and
the seafood species now being used for cat food. may soon end
up on the culinary specialist's cutting board.
Strange species species that appear too ugly to clean
or eat were being cut up. smelled. examined. wrapped in
plastic. and placed in cartons for the ultimate in tests-
cooking and eating. This activity was taking place at Raflield
Fishenes Thursday afternoon. A boat load of sardines and
"trash fish" had arrived at the Fishenes and three fellows in
tall, snow white. stovepipe hats. white jackets and white
aprons were standing around the conveyor belt, gleefully pick-
ing up strange, species as they came off the boat. The. three
men had gathered a large container of the strange fish, to give
the taste test to.
These guys weren't escapees from the funny farm, or peo-
ple with. a strange sense of adventure. They were top of the
-line chefs from. Walt Disney's Epcot Center, picking up
strange looking marine creatures and cutting them, extracting
chunks of meat. Not only were they from Epcot, they were the
"heavy hitters" of the culinary world headquartered at Epcot.
There was Keith Keough, head of the chefs at the Disney

Seafood, Sales

There was good news for the fishing industry here in Gulf
County this past week. Walt Disney's Epcot sent their top line
chefs to Gulf County to see what promise there was in utilizing
by-catch, or trash fish, as a marketable product.
The state Department of Agriculture had their man, Charles
Thomas, who is in charge of the seafood division, attempting to
:find new markets for a new product. In the past, these trash fish
have been relegated to use as cat food or tossed in the trash
:heap. Much of the by-catch was not worth the expense it took to
:utilize it.
Until now.
Thomas said the team of Epcot chefs were excited over the
'results of their visit here. Some of the species are now being
used, but they come from another country, under another name.
Until the visit here, nobody knew it was the same fish, in some
instances, going under a different name.
Thomas was enthusiastic about the future of Gulf County
fishermen and the value of their by-catch.
Which leads us to wonder if the State's right hand, knows
what the left hand is doing.
Hasn't Thomas heard of attempts by certain egg-heads from
the state, banding with certain covetous people from all across
the state, to stop the commercial boys from using nets in search
of their livelihood? There are those in state government who
would hinder commercial fishermen, when all the while, Thomas
and his department are' seeking additional markets for their
product: a product fishermen may be forbidden to harvest in the
So, here we sit, citizens of the state of Florida, paying taxes
to support one agency which would discourage reaping the har-
vest of the oceans and another agency which is encouraging a
larger harvest to satisfy even greater markets.
If we had our druthers, we would rather have the Depart-
ment of Agriculture experience so' much success in developing
niore markets for seafood, those supporting the demise of com-
mercial fishermen would be defeated by popular acclaim.

Waste, Recycling

Expensive Alone
The City of Port.St. Joe is beginning to additup its budgetary
needs for the next fiscal needs and, like the County was two
years ago, they are alarmed at the cost of solid waste disposal.
: The City Commission is worried for a different reason than ,
the County Commissioners were. It seems the City budget for
solid waste has sky-rocketed in the past year, due to people
throughout the county bringing their solid waste into Port St.
Jpe and-dumping It clandestinely.
In i'City of Port St. Joe, subscription to solid waste collec-
tibn is mandatory. To keep the City sanitary and clean, every cit-
izen must subscribe to their collection service. There is no
Out in the County, it is a different matter, however. We have
it on good authority thatArgus Services, contracted with by the
County to provide pick-up services, have only 1500 customers
ail over the county, excluding the City of Port St. Joe. Since Port
St. Joe, with its two square miles of county property, has more'
customers than Argus, it stands to reason that part of the part
of the citizens of Gulf County are not their customers.
Argus and Wewahitchka even have a separate agreement for
them to operate their garbage collection services. This means the.
'firm doesn't do much business throughout the county. We
would suspect their greatest load is in the beaches area.
' Where do the remainder of the citizens take their solid waste
for disposal? They are bringing it to Port St. Joe, rather than pay
for the disposal service. Public containers and those behind
business houses are running over every morning, full of county
solid waste.
How do you solve such a situation?
Since the State of Florida requires solid waste be disposed of
properly, Gulf County could solve everyone's problem of expense
by requiring every homeowner to be a collection subscriber. It's
only fair to the remainder of the county.


Hunker Down with Kes

A friend asked me recently
why I didn't have a riding lawn

better," was my immediate re-
sponse, "I have an automatic

'Yes, sir, when the grass

Josh is the oldest and he has
handled the grass cutting chores
for years. Now, he's complained
near 'bout every step of the way,
but he has done a pretty good job
once you get him started. About
half way through last summer,
Josh shut the mower off, eased
himself under a shade tree,
flipped a bucket upside down for
a seat, stuck a piece of fresh-cut
grass in his mouth, and said,
"Dad, let's talk."
Sweat was pouring off his
precious little face.
'"O.K., son," I hunkered down
beside him.

The L. M. M.

"Dad, I've been cutting this
grass for five or six years."
"I'd say that's about right."
"I think it's Jesse's turn. He

sponsibility. He needs an as-

accomplishment that only comes
from 'a job well done.' We can't
have him growing up unable to
set his shoulder to the wheel, his
face to the wind. Dad, we've got to
teach him now those valuable
lessons that will pay big divi-
dends later in life."'
Gosh, that talk sounded so
familiar to me....I wonder where
he heard it....
"Josh, your brother is sooo
young!" Jess is my.: baby. You
know how that- is! I didn't want
him growing up too fast.
"Dad, by the time I was
Jesse's age, I'd already been!

He did have a point there.
It was time for the father to
be the father.
I "Son, go in the house, pull
Jesse away from the T.V., and.
drag him out here." m- .
"Jess,n this is a lawn mower."
We kinda broke Jess in slow-
ly. I cranked it for him:. Josh
mowed a few strips to give him,

the idea. I took it around a few
times to make sure he under-
stood. By the time we let Jess
take over he only had a small sec-

I finally got 'the mower go-

was wrong-and finished. up the
yard. We'll give Jess a fresh start
next time. ..'
"Next time" we started Jesse
out front by the road. He didn't
even get to the fence before he
.was back in the house. "Dad, the

As we were 'rolling it around

Chancellor Joins Cronkite in Retirement; Who'll Take HisPlace?

fiom NBC television this past
week after 40 years with the net-
work, ending an era of dependa-
ble news casting by seasoned vet-
erans who were household words
during their career.
Chancellor was one of. a
handful of commentators :who
were considered truthful by their
listeners, when they gave their
news reports. Another giant
among the broadcasters was Wal-
ter Cronkite of CBS. Maybe it was
their grandfatherly appearance,
of the straightforward manner in
which they presented the news.
Maybe it was their name, Chan-
cellor and Cronkite, which gave
authority to what they said.
Whatever that mysterious
quality was, they had it ... and
they used it!
The political conventions
won't quite be the same with the
two solid rocks of news reporting
gone. Somehow a Peter Jennings,

Etaoin Shrdlu

Tom Browkaw nor a Dan Rather,
don't quite come across as con-
vincingly as did Cronkite and
Chancellor. They had that "you
can count on me" quality in their
voices the others have not quite
cellor, though. After 40 years of
meeting a deadline and a time
limit, always living by the tick of
a clock, or the turn of a calendar,
a person gets sort of worn out,, or
out of steam., I know, because I
am there and then some.
About the time you become profi-
cient at this job; when you have

learned where to find facts; when
you don't have to dig out back-
ground to bring reason to a story
because you remember it from
past experience; when it all has
happened before in your lifetime;
all your drive is in reverse.
Cronkite has managed to sort
of wind down from living in over-
drive to the first notch above neu-
tral. Chancellor may be able to
accomplish the same thing. For
the last 10 to 15 years of their ca-
reer, they have had the luxury of
a huge network feeding them with
facts for their memory to sort out.
They also had the luxury of a

rich network pouring money their
way to make their work a little
easier. That doesn't happen in a
weekly newspaper, nor many dai-

WE'LL MISS Chancellor's
evening commentaries. They were
short, succinct comments which
digested the news into an under-
standable paragraph and told you'
in unvarnished words, what, the
happenings in the news meant to
the average man or the nation.
Who's going to take his
place? Will it be Dan? Will it be
Tom? Will it be Peter? Will it be
Connie? Maybe it'll be Jane Paul
ley. The men, at least, would
want. to believe what she told
them. If she just wasn't married
to Gary Trudeau, the author of
John Chancellor is retiring to
a small town near Boston, be-
cause, as he' says, "It has good'
train service and:'a good library."
That's one of the best reasons I

have heard fori deciding to live in
a place. Of course he has to find
a place to live. Who would want
to continue to live in New York if
they didn't have to any longer?

ONE OF THE things a jour-
nalist fears most is that part of
his story will be left out of the
narrative. In the case of print
journalists, there is a fear a
graph will be cut for lack of
space, or an entire thought cut
out, of a story because it might be
considered libelous by the ones
"who make those decisions, or a
printer will drop a hand of type

Ready Or Not
All my life, it seems, I haven't been ready for the really big
events that life offers us human beings from time to time during
our lives. It's been one surprise after another for me.
Maybe It's just my imagination, but it seems other people have
been more aware or prepared for life than I was (or am). Whatever
the reason, it seems to me I've missed the "curtain call" on a num-
ber of events in my life that I should have been prepared to face. In
other words, I wasn't ready when these events occurred in by life.
Below are a few of them.
I wasn't ready when:
I started playing football. I thought I was, but the first day a
big boy named Steve, who was in the ninth grade, hit me and bust-
ed my nose all over my face. My daddy told me I had brain damage
when I went out the next afternoon.
I went to high school. There were so many people and some
students looked so old I thought they were grown. Thinking back,
some. of them were and it took some adjusting for a youngster like
me to mixband mingle with gro'wn-ups..
o I left home for college. Oh, I thought I was, and'I was actually'
'looking forward t1 it, but it was a miserable existence, being in a
cold college town, broke and alone. Just a poor boy a long way from
home for a long time.
P. I got my first job after graduating from college. Yes, I thought
I was finally grown, but I was still in my infancy.
P- I was married. We had planned a big church wedding; but I
wasn't financially ready so we ran (or drove) to Brewton, Alabama,,
where we were'married by Rev. Emory Caldwell in his garage that
had been converted to a den and aptly named "Caldwell's Last.

Strange Species
complex and president of the American Culinary Association.
There was Peter Ramses, head chef at the American exhibit at
Epcot and Rick Pestana, one of the top chefs at the popular
tourist attraction, known throughout the world.
The three men, who are without a doubt, top authorities in
their line of work; men who could make a fricasseed rubber
boot taste good, didn't just come to Port St.'Joe on their own,
seeking underutilized seafood specimens for human consump-
tion. They were guided here and accompanied by Charles C.
Thomas; with the Bureau of Seafood and Aquaculture, Divi-
sion of Marketing and Development, Department of Agricul-
ture. Thomas said the Department of Agriculture was dead se-
rious about developing Florida seafood, which has been
: historically categorized as trash fish, as a human food source.
."We're interested in locating species in our Florida waters
which canr be used and we can find a ready market for,"
Thomas said. "If we can do it, we feel it will be a boon to Flori-
da fishermen to be able to sell these products. These men are
the first effort at locating a market which will result in making
it worthwhile to process these fish."
,Chef Keogh said he had recognized one, species which is
very valuable on the gourmet circuit as a delicacy. 'That little
fish right there." he said pointing to a six-inch red mullet, "we
are currently Importing from France through New York. We
call them 'Rouge', [French for, red] and are listed on our me-

venirig years, the project has been cancelled
and revived with almost every change in state
administration:. In 1985, however, with Tapper
at the head ,of the Port Authority, that organiza-
tion was successful in having the Highland
View span designated as 75 feet In height. rath-
er than the standard 65 foot bridge designed
and built by the Department of Transportation.
Tapper's move was to make the waterway ac-


nus at $18.00 a serving; You throw it away or at the most get
a dollar for it." ,
Thomas added, "Here we are importing them from France
and lo, and behold, we have an abundance' of them here .in
Florida waters." Thomas said thisJs the sort of thing the chefs
are touring the entire state searching for.
It was a sight to behold, watching those expert gourmet
chefs wield their razor sharp knives, cutting into everything
from a needle fish, to a squid, to a manta ray, searching out
morsels of meat which were fit for human consumption after
they have been given the master's touch in a broiler, grill or a
frying pan.
All the species, gathered by the 'seine boat and tossed
aside in the culling operation were investigated by the chefs.
Almost all passed their test of smell and appearance and were
tossed in, the "good" box of meat fit for preparation, into a
gourmet meal.
Thomas said he was well pleased with the, results, of the
examination and was especially pleased with the assistance
-Raffield's had given'him and his search for edible species to
promote through their market connections.
Who can argue with the edibility of.a piece of fish with a .
gourmet chef? ,
Who can question their judgment when they, too, know
not to touch an ugly blow fish? Nobody will eat that thing. Not

cessible to sea-going barges to enhance the fu-
ture port development.
State approval of the span was also assured
that year when Tapper guided the Port Authori-
ty in providing DOT with $100,000 cash to-
wards extra engineering design costs and
$2,000,000 in securities maturing December
15, 1995, to pay for the extra 10 feet in clear-
ance height. DOT made applications for a per-
mit in 1988 and from that time forward, the
bridge project has done nothing but go forward
to completion.

Berred Treasures....

By Carol Rollick
How about a treasure hunt?
There is one under way that will
peak this week with the climax of
the blueberry season. Nature's
generous bounty has overlapped,
gifting us with a recreational and
culinary duo. Due to the March
storm, yields from the blueberry
crops across: northern Florida
were delayed, providing a late
abundance of choice berries to
enjoy with our other summertime
treasure, the scallop. Normally
finished by the fourth of July, the
bushes at Bayou Blueberry, a U-
Pick blueberry plantation at Sim-
mons Bayou on 30 C, are laden
with fruit grown large and lus-
cious with the help of recent
rains. If you hurry, for $1.00 a
pound or about 50 a pint, you
can enjoy a family outing and
take home the making for mouth-
watering blueberry treats.
Dan and Merry Christie
bought their 1 1/2 acres in Sim-
mons Bayou five years ago. A life-
long ambition to cultivate blue-'
berries was. realized when Dan'
found huckleberries, ,small, na-
tive wild berries on the property,
convincing him that the soil was
suitable for his dreamed-of blue-
berry plantation. Dan's uncle,
Richard Christie, a plant patholo-
gist at the University of Florida,
gave him 300 plants. Struggling
with only a shovel and a wheel-
barrow, Dan manhandled a
mountain of composted humus
that came with the property into
the neat, mounded rows upon

eyes, Merry threatens to weigh
some of us on the way in and out,
then she hastens to assure us
that she's only kidding.
Something that's not a joke is
the fact that Dan and Merry
Christies donate 1/2 of their pro-
ceeds to charity. -
Nationally, there are more
than 30,000 acres of blueberries
cultivated commercially, primari-
ly in New Jersey, Michigan, and
North Carolina. Florida, a relative
newcomer on the scene, has en-
tered the market with the im-
proved southern rabbiteye ber-
ries. Rabbiteyes bear earlier in
the year, giving Florida a jump on
the national distribution of the
crop. Early berries command a
premium price on the market-
Research on the blueberry
began at the University of Florida
in 1950. Because the blueberry is
a deciduous plant and requires
some cold weather it induces
strong flowers and good fruit set,
planting in Florida starts around
Gainesville and goes northward.
Today there are well over 500
acres of blueberries in Florida.
FICO, in Gulf county, has 280
acres under cultivation commer-
cially. Much of the balance of
acreage is in U-Pick plantations.
Depending on the age of the bush
and the weather, Florida blueber-
ries can yield anywhere from
1000-8200 lbs. per acre. National
long-term averages are about
three tons per acre.
This June, Tripp Barrier and

Cheryl Whipple of Atlanta and her father
Bill McGee show off the berries they picked.

which:he planted his new crop.
Looking to FICO, the major,
player in the 'commercial propa-
gation of berries in our area, Danr
purchased additional varieties to
round out his selection. The'
present count of 1200 plus bush-
es, which the Christies prure lto"
keep low for easy picking, are
planted in alternating rows"'of va-
rieties to assure cross pollination.
Relying on the rains for irrigation,.
the bushes are heavily mulched
with pine bark and pine straw to
conserve the moisture, making
for extra juicy berries. The Chris-
ties estimate ,that there are at
least 300-400 Ibs. ripe for the

reach the lower branches while'
the rest of us find our hands-full
of ripe berries that fall like hall
into our buckets. The Christies
provide containers for' picking
that hold about four pounds
each, a scale for weighing your,
bounty and plastic bags. Merry
encourages people to try the ber-
;ies while they pick in order, to
'determine which- variety they fa-
vor. Pop some in your mouth; no
pesticidAs are,;used, and the ber- .
ries are warm and 'sweet. If youa
find that you particularly like the
variety from one row, skip' a-row .
when you resume" picking and'
you will find the same variety re-
peated. With a. twinkle in her,

his wife Sharon bought the Settle-
mire farm in Dalkeith and are re-
turning it to its former condition.
The Settlemire/Barrier farm has
approximately 1/4 of an acre in
prime berries. Mr. Settlemire,
now deceased, and his wife pio-
neered the field, demonstrating
the suitability of blueberry propa-

So, you've had headaches
for most of your adult life.
You've even- taken them for
granted and even assumed that
they are a' part of your normal
life. Don't feel alone. Adults .go
on for years and years experi-
encing headaches on a routine
basis feeling that because they
are so routine, they must be nor-
mal. Often, these headache vic-
tims have seen physicians who
may have diagnosed their symp-
toms as being caused by stress
and treat it with pain medication
or tranquilizers.
Well, it's possible that your
headaches may be due to an

improper bite. Possibly, the
place you should be for treat-
ment' is your dentist's office.
These headaches are often
muscle strain headaches and if
the improper bit (called a maloc-
clusion) is properly treated then
the muscles of the jaw can then
relax. You may be able to look
forward to normal days without
headaches in your future.

vice 'to promote better dental

Young children often are
referred to the podiatrist be-
cause their parents become
concerned about the way the
youngsters stand, or walk.
Among the most common
concerns are flat feet, bow-
legs, knock knees, toeing in
or out, scuffing, waddling and
other abnormal walking mo-
tion. The common question
by parents: "Will the child
outgrow the problem?" '
In many cases the an-
swer is yes. Some problems
may result from crowding of
the legs and feet in the uter-
us in the-last months of preg-
nancy. If so, leg and foot
functioqnmay gradually ini-
prove as a child grows. Other
causes may be responsible
for abnormal stance or'walk-
ing. If you are concerned.
about such' problems, bring
the child to the podiatrist for
examination, measurements.
and evaluation of foot devel-
opment for his or her age.
This is the starting point for
determining whether it's like-
ly that the child will outgrow
the problem or will need help
to correct it.

My dBig River Championship

Gems from My Garden Rodeo, Festival July 16,17
[Cloud is a former resident of. ing is in. Rotted material-grass So I opened the line up by taking '. .s .

Port St. -Joe, educated in local
schools and is a son of Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Cloud. He is a minis-
ter and an author.]
A man had a fig tree, plant-
ed in hisvineyard, and he went
to loqk for fruit on it, but did
not find any. So he said to the
n "n who took care of the vine-
yard, "For three years now I've
been coming to look for fruit
on this fig tree and haven't
found any. Cut it down! Why
should it use up the soil?"
"Sir," the man replied,"leave it
alone for one more year, and I'll
dig around it and fertilize it. If
it bears fruit next year, fine! If
Snot, then cut it down."
Luke 13:6-9
Fertilizer is an interesting
subject. Too little and your plants
are anemic. Too much and they
wilt, bum, and even die. Environ-
mentalists tell us that we need to
use natural fertilizers. Compost-

clippings, plant trimmings, and
even some of our garbage, rotted
and decayed-makes excellent
fertilizer. Manure is also a favor-
ite. Some call it lot fertilizer. Qth-
ers by less classy names. But
they say it works. I am sure thie
cows don't miss it. I even heard a
story of a country church that
bagged the stuff, took. it to town
and sold it The money made was
used to put new: flooring in 'the
church building; That's what I
call innovative fund raising ..
Natural fertilizer does work.
Have you ever noticed the grass
over the septic tank? It's the
greefnest in the yard, and has to
be mowed thd most often. There
is a brand of coffee that claims
"Mountain grown, that's the rich-
,est kind." It niakles you wonder
'what has been happening down
in the valley., I have seen natural
fertilizer work. We 'had septic
tank problems over a weekend.
We had to do something or move.

out a clean out plug. For several
days the waste water from our.
house emptied ipto a flower bed
near a rather anemic azalea. I
now have written the local agri-
cultural university to send one of
their ag students to take a look at
my azalea. The blooms are bold
and gigantic. I may have to get a
chain saw and trim it back a bit
before it pushes up the founda-
tion of the house.
Yards. gardens, and flowers
all need fertilizer. People do, too.
Too many of us are like the fig;
tree in the parable-we're just us-.
ing&up the soil. We take up space
and suck nutrients, but don't
produce fruit. There is hope, as
well as judgement. in the parable.
The, story is not just about
"cutting down" the unfruitful, but
about patience. With the proper,
care, most trees eventually come
around. I am glad God is a pa-
tient gardener.

Five Year Hunting License

Eliminates Renewal Chores

One of the least expensive'
items a sportsman buys to hunt
and fish in Florida is a license.
Compared to buying bait, ammu-
nition, and gasoline, the cost of a
license is a bargain.'
Each year over 1 million Flor-
ida residents go through the
chore of renewing hunting, fresh-
water' and saltwater, fishing li-.
censes but the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Comnmissiorn has
something to make the process a

little easier. Rather than renewing
your licenses every year, Florida
now offers five-year freshwater,,
saltwater, and hunting licenses to'
SThe cost for five-year licens-
es are: freshwater fishing, $60;
saltwater fishing, $60; and hunt-
ing. $270 (includes wildlife man-
agement area, archery, muzzle-
loading gun, turkey, and state
waterfowl stamps). -
S Holders of five-year licenses

also are exempt from price in-
creases and from .any new stamp
requirements created while their
licenses are valid, Joiner said.
Applications for five-year li-
censes are available at county tax
collectors' offices and their suba-

The Fifth Annual Big River
Championship Rodeo, resched-
uled from a March rain-out, will
be held at Gulf County Spe'dway
in Wewalitchka on Friday and
Saturday, July 16 & 17.
The Rodeo, organized by the
Wewahitchka 'Saddle Club and
b' &B Rodeo Co., will include sev-
en major ;events, which will pro-
vide points toward the National
Championship Finals in Atlanta,
Georgia. Along with a considera-
ble number of talented local cow-
boys, many professional riders
with national standing are ex-
pected to compete. The seven
.-events will include barrel racing,
steer wrestling, calf roping, team
roping, Brahma bull riding, bare-
.'back riding, and for the first time
':in the Big River Championship
Rodeo, the wild horse race.
Now, for those of you that
have never seen the wild horse
race, you do not want to miss itl
.It 'will be a madhouse when
teams of three cowboys challenge
wild horses, all busting out of the
chutes at the same time. Each
team of cowboys will attempt to
get one of these ornery horses
saddled, rode (verified by the
judges), then unsaddled. The first
team accomplishing this wins.
Wild Horse Racing has been
around for many years, an attrac-
tion rodeo goers savor as a small
slice of old-time rodeoingg". The
event is popular with crowds and,
a handful of participants, but not
many rodeos offer wild horse rac-
es anymore. It seems that, well,
it's just too darn tough to field




Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Before the 1940's, if you became ill with an infection, your body
needed to fight the disease and cure it, or you died-slowly as with
tuberculosis or quickly as with spinal meningitis.
When penicillin first became available it was really a "miracle
drug." Seriously ill people who would normally have died were now
recovering and subsequently living normal lives. After Penicillin,
there has been a seemingly endless progression of new antibiotics',
each more expensive than the last. '
Different antibiotics work differently in the body to effect a cure.
Some are what we call bactericidal and actually kill gerims but
most cause improvement by inhibiting the development of new bac-
teria. When your doctor orders a course of antibiotics for you, he
must consider the disease process he is treating and the antibiotic
that will best do the job.
After the doctor has made the detennination to treat, and made
the choice of medication to use, he will then outline the course of
medicine to be taken. This depends on the absorption of the medi-,,
cine and the time needed to kill the bacteria. Often a 10 day course
of antibiotics is outlined. If the patient is feeling better in three to
four days. that does not mean the medicine should be stopped. An-
tibiotic prescriptions are written with the intention for the patient to
take the medicine until it is all gone. ..
The word antibiotic was originated to mean "destructive to the
lives of microorganisms." Antibiotics are not antiviral medications.
They do not cure colds which are caused by viruses. Colds are a big
problem in young children, but the run of the mill cold lasts one to
two weeks whether the child has antibiotics or not. If there is no
specific ear infection or other secondary bacteria problem the child'
will overcome his illness at the same time whether or not he has an-
tibiotics. That being the case, it seems unwise to expose a child to
the possibility of an allergic reaction or severe side effects from
medication when his disease is self-limiting. There may be a time
when he actually needs the medicine, and it would then be unavail-
able to him if he had previously developed an allergy to that medi-

SR Pr-incipal's Desk


EHigh School
S By Larry A. Mathes

As I mentioned earlier this summer, principals have been meet-
ing trying to hammer out a tougher Student Discipline Code. All of
,us agree that the time has come to be more aggressive when dealing
with disruptive students. Basically0,1parents can look for a student
who insists on being disruptive,' t6 begin spending more time at
home. .*,
At-home suspension, unfortunately. is the only discipline that
seems to work. Detention. limited paddling, and in-school suspen-
sion are just minor inconveniences to most students, as evidenced
by the high number of repeat offenders. Of course, the offender's
biggest offense Is that they occupy an unfair amount of class time,
'thereby preventing others from having a fair chance to learn.
At WHS, we have utilized every possible discipline technique at
our disposal, arid the number of repeat discipline problems contin-
,ue to hinder the progress that should be made in the classrooms.
This coming school year, students will get a couple of chances to
adapt to class and school rules-those that can't may find them-
selves at home until they decide that they can sit in class and fol-
low the teacher's,.directives without disrupting class. Maybe If Mom
& Dad see them often enough, they will encourage their students to
find a way to stay in school. Discussions with parents, School
Board members, teachers, and County Administrators, as well as
District and School Advisory Council members, support this move
'towards asking parents to take the responsibility for their student's
behavior at school.
Some words-about buying clothes for WHS-students may not
wear "short" or "tight" shorts, or pants that are torn or ripped above
the "shorts" level. Shirts, if sleeveless, must fit snugly under the
arm, and may not have profanity, obscene pictures, alcohol, or to-
bacco products advertisements, or suggestive language. Skirts, like
shorts, should cover 3/4 of the thigh, and shirts miist cover the
back and front of the torso (No short shirts or exposed midriff).
Hats, headbands, etc., may not be worn in the building. And, belts
must be buckled, zippers zipped, and buttons buttoned.
While that seems like a lot, I assure you that students can
dress well with much individuality and still fall-well within the
dress code. Please call the school if you want an opinion about a
particular style of clothing.
I hate to think that this summer is flying by, but August 12 is
less than a month away. We spend the summer trying to be ready
for the school year-always seems to get here too quickly.
WHS's loss is PSJHS's gain-good luck to Ms. Marilyn Witten.

Girl Scouts have Had

A Very Busy Summer

Bunny Miller, Brownie Troop
242 leader, has been very busy
already this summer with more to
go. They have been skating, to
Gulf World. on July,24 they will'
be goirig to Zoo World. and on Au-

ly cook-out.These are a lot of re-
quirements for the "Blue Ribbon"
and 'Year Round" patch program.
With these activities, they will
qualify for both. The girls decided
what the wanted to do, then they
,decided how many cans of nuts
and Girl Scout cookies they had
to sell to earn enough money to
pay for it. The girls must attend
tWO out of three of the activities
planned for June, July, and Au-
gust to earn the patches.
The girls in Troop 242 are:
Mary Amerson, Shea Neel, Amy
Canington. Joanna Watkins, Mar-
garet Gibson, Jennifer Rameld,
Julie Hogan, Heather Lynch, Beth
Cordova, Lacey Franklin, Jessica
Ford, April Murray, Nicole Ford,
Tracy Watkins, Audry Cobb, and

Stephanie Strayer.
Thanks to all who bought
,cans of nuts and Girl Scout cook-

earn the money to pay for all of
their activities.
