Tuesday was, 'Wash Day" for

dirty linen, including coming

their appointed personnel.

Chairman Nathan Peters had is-
sued'without first consulting the
other Board Members. Traylor
also scored the Chairman for
countermanding a decision made
by Traylor in his district, saying,
'You have no authority to do that.
All of us make decisions in our
districts every day without benefit
of consulting the entire Board.

the services of two maintenance

first questioning if they were
busy, to take care of an emergen-

Board. "If the men had been busy
with other duties for the County,
I would not. have insisted they
drop what they were doing and
perform the task for the School
Board. You had no right to cancel
my request for the services of the
two men," Traylor told Peters.
Peters retorted he felt he did
have the right to both cancel
Traylor's request and to write the
letter of policy.

County had always come to the
need of each other, on both ends

stood behind Traylor in regard to

have required every Commission---
er to get permission to approve

consulting the Board as a whole.

up with a more lenient letter and
present it to the Board as a whole

A Panama City man became Gulf County's fourth traffic

flipped over three times, killing him instantly and Injuring
his passenger slightly.

Ms. Maxted received only slight injuries and was treated
and released from Gulf Pines Hospital after observation for a

According to Highway Patrolman Greg Jackson, Gay was
driving east and apparently fell asleep for a moment. When
he awakened the wheels of the vehicle were off the pavement

Norris said Clifford had given in-

by his utility, when it was later
found to be an improper hook-up.
Clifford defended himself by
saying the hook-up was only tem-
porary in order, to get power to
test the trailer. He didn't know
who actually hooked power to the
residence. "I didn't give permis-

The Senior Citizens have not quite gotten started with con-

already it has been moved.
In a meeting of the Board of Directors last Thursday, the
Senior Citizens organization voted to approach the County Com-
mission with a formal request to furnish property to place the
Center on, moving away from their Forrest Park location. The
Center had previously been granted property in Forrest Park, be-
tween Sixthand Seventh Streets, but soil-bearing problems and
restricted parking in the area, caused growing concern that the
site would be less than desirable, but the Seniors were stuck
with it because it was the only property available for the price .
Behind the scenes negotiations between County Commis-
sioner Warren Yeager and Senior Citizens director, Jerry Stokoe,
came up with an alternative site selection near the Gulf County
Courthouse on which to place the combination recreation cen-
ter, meeting place and meal preparation and serving site.

gram to raise funds for the building which is scheduled to get
underway this fall.

south of the Corrine Gibson Costin Memorial Library, occupying
property from the Library building to the Division of Drivers Li-

The seniors have agreed to build a building in keeping with

PAGE TWO *THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 1993
IT WAS AN UNFORTUNATE coincidence last week when
Britt Pickett called giving us the information about the break-ins
in homes out at the Cape and the vandalism by a person or per-
sons, taking items of value from the homes and carting them
away. A few days before that revelation, one of our brothers
called us asking about real estate [beach houses] In this area on
the market. He has a desire to purchase one because he felt he
could make more off his investment renting the house than he
could purchasing CDs. The first question he asked us was, "How
about vandalism in your area. Is it much of a 'problem?"
What were to tell him; 'Yes," or "No"?
We could have told him "No, nothing compared with the van-
dalism in the large metropolitan city where you live." But would.
that have been a factual answer? Not at all. It would have been a
comparative answer. What he wanted and needed was a factual
VANDALISM IS A LITTLE late in arriving in Gulf County:. .
the type vandalism residents of large cities are accustomed to.
But when vandals strike one's personal belongings, he doesn't
care that he Is the "Only one to be hit in that area in at least a
year or two." When thieves strike in a particular spot, the owner
is frustrated at least. What is one to do? Granted the law can't
station a man in front of every dwelling to watch for thieves. But,
that's just about what it would take; a personal guard on a 24-
hour basis, to avoid any break-ins from occurring.
Who can afford that? Certainly not an individual property
owner; certainly not even the government.
So, what do we do?
ABOUT THE ONLY thing we can do to prevent' this condi-
tion from growing into something which happens every day, or to
prevent it from happening as infrequently as it does here in Gulf
County, is to be each other's eyes. Watch each other's property
and if you see anything suspicious or out of the ordinary, call
the Sheriffs office and report it. Usually, in a slow paced place
such as Gulf County, if the activity looks unusual or suspicious,
in all likelihood we have good reason to be suspicious.
If you see someone unfamiliar hanging around or removing
something from property familiar to you; call the police! In a
small community setting such as Gulf County if isn't all that
hard to separate the unfamiliar, the suspicious, the unusual,
from things as they should be.
Let's not become a community which is plagued with vandal-
ism at such a rate that we consider it one of the natural plagues
we Just have to endure.
Trying, But Ift's Costly
IF THINGS KEEP GOING as they are now headed it will ulti-
mately cost more to do away with carton or paper sack than it
will cost us for the goods which came packed in what we are
throwing away. This is made evident from the garbage rates in
Port St. Joe. By the way, they are going up again. The Jury is still
out on whether or not this latest rate schedule is going to cover
the cost of doing away with our trash as the state and national
government want us to.
Your City government thought the most recent rate would be
adequate to cover the costsof collection and elimination; but
they were wrong.
There's notmuch one can eliminate from the service to make
it more economical. To get the service and the convenience it af-
fords, making sure it is disposed of in ani acceptable manner is
proving to be expensive.
WE HAPPEN TO LIVE in an area of the state which is mostly
considered wetlands. That is, the environment is especially dell-
cate here, causing the disposal of wastes a delicate and costly
matter if we are going to have any assurance it is being done
safely and in a proper manner.
For years we dug a hole and buried it. In later years we have
been told this is dangerous to our underground water supply.
We happen to be one of those who feels that some of the rules
are too stringent and some materials are not the pollutants gov-
ernment tell us they are. But you can't argue with the fact that
as a whole, trash eradication is not the easy task we once
THE CITY IS ONE government entity which is trying to elim-
inate trash and garbage in the proper manner. They are recy-
cling material which is recyclable. They are keeping things out of
our waste stream which are harmful to humans. They are con-
tinuously searching for markets for their recyclable materials to
reclaim metals, paper and glass so It will be out of the waste
stream and use less energy making virgin materials. About the
only satisfaction we can get out of our increased garbage rates is
the satisfaction of knowing we are doing our part to prevent pol-
lution and not destroy our resources.

Miracle On Marvin Avenue
If you are one of those people who doubts all things that are not
proof-positive, beyond-any-shadow-of-a-doubt, then you must visit
8.18 Marvin Avenue and see the miracle of the year.
Grandma and I have a granddaughter!
Yes, she is our first and, no, I don't feel like an old man just be-
cause I am now a grandpa. Why, I'm so happy and proud and in
love that I could probably out run most 20 to 30 year old one-legged
men in thelstate of Florida.
It's hard for me to explain exactly how wonderful I feel, but
please let me try.
I'm not certain what I expected when I gazed intently on the
face of Jade Alaxandria Campbell for the first time, but I do know
one thing-it was love at first sight!
For those of you who don't know me, I am physically a big man
and a few of my idols are John Wayne, General George Patton, and
Superman. But, in all honesty, I must tell you that the first time I
looked upon the face of my granddaughter and held her in my
arms, it took all I could do to keep from crying. If that was an un-
manly emotion, so be it.
It was a very emotional experience; a feeling I have never experi-
enced before. Never before have I ever said that a new-born baby,
including my own, was pretty. They have always looked like they
have just been taken out of an oven. I often wondered, while looking
at new-born babies, how some of them would survive. They have al-
ways looked like a red blob of wrinkled flesh and most of them have
been crying in pain, or so it seemed.
Jade wasn't pretty, either; she was and is beautiful! And don't
tell me I'm saying that just because she is my first grandchild. She
is a beautiful child, and I stand beside my word. Well, I may be
prejudiced....Just a little.
Since Jade's birth, just three short days ago, I have been mak-
ing plans that I wasn't aware I was capable of making. I have start-
ed trying to devise a way to make lots of money so I can afford all
the things a little, growing girl will need, like a bicycle and a little
later she will need a horse with a small, 50 acre ranch to go with it.
And a little later she will just have to have a new, red convertible to
drive to school, when she gets her driver's license, of course,
Don't think I have forgotten about a college education, either. I
want her to go to a good school and get a good education so she can
meet a good, wealthy man to marry. I don't want her to make the
same mistake her grandmother did. Her grandmother married for
love, with the hope of money. It never materialized! The money, that
is : '. ". :. ,.
I already have plans to take her places, like fishing trips and
she can play golf with me from time to time if she is so inclined.
Well. there's just too much I have to do to prepare for this won-
derful child's life for me to continue sitting here writing about it. I
must get busy

ARPC Begins Foreclosure Preparations
The Apalachicola Regional
Planning Council may accomplish
with Raffield Fisheries what two
devastating fires were unable to
do-put the giant seafood pro-
cessing and marketing firm out of
business. This is what they are,
intentionally or unintentionally
doing by setting the wheels in
motion to conduct foreclosure
proceedings on Raffield unless
payment of a $1 million loan is
received by the end of this month.
The loan was made in 1986
to assist, in rebuilding after the
first fire, in order to preserve the
200 jobs the firm makes available
in Gulf County. The money was
made available by the Economic
Development Department of the
Federal -Government to preserve
or encourage new jobs.
Since 1986, increased pres-
sure on fishing rules and regula-
tions has hampered the firm in
its operation, as well as a govern-
ment case against them claiming
some of the money was used for
purposes other than stated on
the loan agreement. The govern-
ment admits all of the money was
spent on re-building the plant,
but not specifically in the areas
determined by the agreement.
Raffield says that most of his
problems stems from bookkeep-
ing procedures practiced by
ARPC, the agency preparing the
foreclosure procedures. Raffield
says ARPC was fully informed of
what they were doing and they
failed to file proper documents
supporting the moves.
ARPC says they must have
payment of the loan so the money
can be loaned out again to other
firms, creating new jobs.
If the foreclosure procedure

goes through, Raffield says, plus
payment of a pending fine against
the company by the Federal Gov-
ernment, it would spell the end to
the operation as it now is and re-
sult in a scaled-back operation
requiring less employees.
In out-of-court settlement
talks, Raffield has offered to pay
off the $1.1 million balance on
the ARPC loan and $45,000, the
minimum fine, according to Gary
Printy, Raffield's attorney. In ad-
dition Justice Department litiga-
tors have asked for about
$600,000 more, which would con-
sume almost all of the $200 mil-
lion insurance money being held
in escrow from the last fire, early
this year, which Raffield says he
needs to re-build the plant.

equipment now to start building

The government has not pur-
sued its case, but is expected to
do so. ARPC, however, moved late
last month by announcing it was
accelerating the debt on Raffield's
loan, a necessary step before fore-
closure. This, after an arrange-
ment of "good faith" payments
were hammered out, plusI regular
payments on the principal were
scheduled late last year. Ed Blan-
ton, attorney for ARPC said it
would consider foreclosure if Raf-
field does not pay off his balance

Raffield says if ARPC does
foreclose, they may make loans
with private banks to finance as

CILCHHDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
VISITS TO THE
STAGES OF ILLNESS
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
When you go to the doctor, you are asked to relate the problem
that caused you to make the visit. This is called the "medical histo-
ry". Your physician will try to match up the medical history with the
physical findings of his examination. Once these two parts can be
connected, the physician can outline the treatment.
A problem can arise if the full pattern of the disease has not de-
veloped. A person may just have a runny nose and watery eyes for
the first 2 or 3 days of a cold, but by the 3rd or 4th day may have
developed an ear infection or bronchitis. Gastroenteritis (vomiting
and diarrhea), If it progresses or persists, may become complicated
by dehydration. Poor eating habits may cause anemia. There are
many other examples one could outline.
The point to be made is this: The treatment is tailored to meet
the disease process as it presents. For example, treatment Is begun
for vomiting and diarrhea with the thought in mind to prevent de-
hydration. Should dehydration develop, in spite of the preventative
measures, it will need to be treated differently.
Anothep.-problem arises when the patient does not tell his doc-'
tor all the history of his illness. Patients sometimes think this or
`that fe-iofi h itanrt'a-n-l do&ffol include this ini f i-e istoy tiey th ell
the doctor. Without the coinplete story of what has happened, the
physician is hampered in his efforts to help the patient. A physician
is not a mind reader and does not have any magical tricks. He does
have education, intuition, and personal information, on a patient he
sees regularly, to help him care.for the patient.
Without candor and trust, the care of the person who is ill be-
comes similar to blind persons feeling an elephant. The impression
received depends entirely on the part of the elephant being felt.

Hamilton, Pryor Are "Big
Part" of Union's Defense
Tyrone Hamilton, a 1991 Port

Pryor, a 1992 graduate, are
expected to make major contribu-
tions to Union College's football
team in Barbourville, Kentucky
The Bulldogs posted an 8-2
season last year and return most
of their defensive unit. Union
Coach Matt Ballard said his team
was "three or four times as good
coming out of the spring defen-
sively than we were in the fall."
And that's not too shabby
considering what Ballard has to
say about the performance of the
defense last year.
'"We won a championship last
year because our young defense
grew up," he said. "I would have

Gators Fall to Bronson
The Wewahitchka Gators
played the Bronson Eagles to a
draw for the first half last Friday
night, but the long trip took its
toll in the third period, as the Ea-
gles ran [literally] up 21 points to
take the lead and put the game
After holding the Eagles to a
7-7 draw in the first half, the Ga-
tors went on to drop their second
game of the season, 41-19 behind
the hard running of Bronson's
Jaugernaut-like offense. The Ea-
gles passed on only four occa-
sions for the night, completing
one and netting only six yards.
They ran the football 32 times for
a net 312 yards, however, to
hand the Gators their defeat.
AIR GAME IMPROVING
The Gators, meantime, were
getting as many yards via the air-
waves as they were on the
ground. Tranum McLemore's
passes scored one fourth quarter
touchdown for the Gators and set
up the final score, a one yard
plunge by Allen Roberts.
The Gators scored first in the
game, putting the Eagles in the
hole by a touchdown in the first
period, when Roberts burst
through on a one-yard plunge
through the middle. Earnest
Myers kicked the extra point.
But the Gator lead wasn't to

It was the fateful third period
when everything seemed to fall
apart for the Gators. Bronson's
race horses, Bryan Greenlee and
Terrance Miller put 21 points up
which put the Gators in the hole
by 14 points.
The Gators re-grouped in the
final quarter, but it was too little
too late, and besides, the Eagles
weren't just sitting in their nests.
They also added 13 points to
their lead to preserve the win.
Gator fans were brought to
their feet, nevertheless, in the fi-
nal period, when McLemore
found Jefemy Pridgeon racing
down the sidelines on a 55 yard
pass which was possibly the most
exciting play of the game. The Ga-

Tigers who are currently rated #1
in the state prep Class AA poll.
The Sharks lived up to their

St. Joe elected to receive the
opening kickoff. Kendrick Addi-
son, deep for the Sharks, re-
turned the ball 21 yards to St.
Joe's 23 yard line to start the
game. A nine play scoring drive,
engineered by quarterback Bryan
Butts, let the Tigers know that
the Sharks came to play.
Butts reeled off eight yards
on the first play from scrimmage.
Jamaail. Fenn and Joe Price
tucked in passes from Butts for
eight and 13 yards. Running
back Antwione Allen carried the
ball 11 yards down to the Shark
one yard line where Butts put the
ball in the end zone on a quarter-
back keeper. Antwione Allen ran
the ball for the two-point conver-
sion to cap the Sharks scoring
Chipley answered the Sharks
later in the quarter as running
back Teon Knox scored on a 25
yard touchdown gallop. Their try
for the two-point conversion
failed and the Sharks held onto a
two point lead, 8-6.
St. Joe added to its lead early
in the second quarter when place-
kicker Eric Monteiro kicked a 26
yard field goal. Monteiro had
intercepted a Chipley pass, and
returned it to the 50 yard line to
start the Sharks' drive. Good
runs by Allen and Butts moved
the ball down to the Tiger 16 yard
line setting up the field goal, and
giving St. Joe an 11-6 scoring
Chipley came right back at
the Sharks, scoring a touchdown
late in the first half, and was suc-
cessful in a two-point conversion
to take a 14-11 lead into the lock-
er room at half time.
The Tigers put six more
points on the board early in the
fourth quarter for the final score
of the night securing a 20-11 vic-
The real story of the game
was the heart the Sharks dis-
played in the second half. The
defense made big plays time and
time again. Early in the third
quarter the Sharks stopped the
Tigers' offense cold on a fourth
and goal from the two yard line.
The St. Joe offense was equal
to the task in the second half
also, but it seemed that every
time they made a big play to
score or to put themselves into
scoring position the play was nul-
lified by a penalty flag. A touch-

Nicholas Needs Your Help
11-Month Old Has Serious Heart Problems; Birth Defects
Little Nicholas Scheffer, age
11 months faces an uncertain fu-
ture filled with hospitals and spe-
cialty doctors, he has been told
by Shands Teaching Hospital doc-
tors. If it's all the same to you,
Nicholas had rather have a long
and healthy life, thank youl He
possibly can after the doctors fin-

a transplant or two.
Nicholas is the son of Larry
and Vickie Scheffer, the grandson
of Houston and Laverne Ramsey
and the late Richard and Mar-
The young man was born
with a congenital heart condition.
He has what is known as Pulmo-
nary Atreia-or in plain lan-
guage-born with 3/4 of a heart.
As can be expected, this is caus-
ing him problems. After a recent
return from Shands he came
home with the diagnosis of a de-
formed left coronary artery which
i has made his left lung useless.
That's bad, if you didn't know it.
HAS HAD TWO OPEN
Nicholas has already received
two open heart surgeries in his
young life. His surgeons at
Shands are referring him to a
Boston, Mass., hospital, who in
turn will determine which treat-
ment is best for the young man;
probably prescribing a new heart
and a new lung.
That's a pretty heavy load to
put on an 11-month-old boy with
a will to live. It's a pretty heavy
load to put on his parents, too.
They both need your help

dure can cost around $750,000.

Mrs. Scheffer said.
Also, some medical proce-
dures must be paid for by the

rance payments, toward the

Night Fishing A New Lease n Life for

Commission, you try night fish-
is to go where the fish "ought to
be feeding." Boat fishing, dock
fishing, or walking the bank can
yield equal success.
If you are fishing for panfish
or crappie at night, using a lan-,
tern may be the best idea. A
strong light (gas lanterns are
probably most common) is sus-

To avoid this, in areas with vege-

rigged weedless. Larger worms,
eight to 12-inches or longer; are
more effective at night because
they emit more vibrations which
bass can sense.
Another successful night fish-
ing technique is "Jigging".
Thifitechnique takes a strong
arm and a good helperi on the
paddle or trolling motor. A noisy,
popping-type lure is attached to a
stout cane pole on about tWo feet
of line. The lure is fished by slow-
ly moving down the grass line, ex-
tending the pole over open patch-
es of water, dropping,the lure and
Jugging it up and down in the wa-
ter several times. Let the lure rest

cess. Two or three sets at any one
spot should bring some action.
As with any sport, night fish-
ing has It's own peculiarities and
problems. There are particular
ones that if given thought prior to
the trip will help ensure a better
catch and a more enjoyable trip.
For instance, assemble your ter-
minal tackle before, leaving home.
It's a lot easier to thread a hook
or rig your rod at home than by
the light of a flashlight. AMake
sure your flashlight or lantern is
in working order, the lantern is
filled, and mantles are good.
If you're going out in a boat,
remember a breakdown in, the
daytime is. a nuisance...at night
on a lonely lake, it is dangerous.
Take along your regular safety
equipment, make sure your boat
has the proper lights, then add a
few extras: spark plugs, shear
pins, and gasoline. Night fishing
is fun and, for the uninitiated, it
can add a new dimension to his
already excellent opportunities
for Florida fishing.

A few teams gain the reputation of being a 2nd half team, based
on their performances. Bronson must be in that category-last
week, they came from behind to score 28 points to beat Bell High
School. Against WHS Friday night, with the score 7-7 at the half,
Bronson -unleashed a running attack that put 34 points on the
board to finish 41-19. To sum up, we just couldn't catch them.
They had several running backs (a couple of which may not have
slowed down yet) that broke long TD runs to grind us down. Two
fourth quarter scores helped salve our wounds a little. Now it's put
it behind you time and get ready for Greensboro this Friday night in
Wewa at 7:30 CT.
Thursday night the JV travels to Liberty County for a 6 CT
game. Good luckl
Volleyball opens, with a match against Apalachicola thursday at
the Apalach gym.
Thanks to all our fans that made the trip to Bronson-I hope
they'll continue to support us. Another long one later in the year
will be Ernest Ward High School at Walnut Hill.
Progress reports have been sent, mostly to students who are
having difficulty with their grades. Some parents have already con-
tacted teachers-if you haven't and you need to, please call to ar-
range a conference. The first step should always be to meet with the
teacher to get a first-hand report of the problem. Then try to agree
on a solution.
Parents-please make sure your student does not knowingly or
unknowingly break the law, as well as school rules. Example-if
you know that your student carries a pocket knife (no matter the
size) and it (or anything that can be used as a weapon) is discovered
in his/her possession, it can result in legal consequences as well as
school discipline. It might be a good idea to check, to avoid the
problem before it occurs.
The first six-weeks period is rapidly approaching the end. All
students, especially those trying to maintain the grades needed to
remain (or gain) athletic eligibility, need to follow through and do
their best. Avoid that last minute let down j

Are You Ready?
Question Highlights Hurricane Preparedness
Meeting / Training Aimed at Senior Citizens
"Are you ready?" That is the
question posed by a film shown
to the residents of Liberty Manor
this week at the Hurricane Pre-
paredness Workshop developed
by South Gulf EMS and Gulf
Pines Hospital. Jo Anne Wilson,
Special Needs Coordinator for the
Department of Emergency Man-
agement, and Tessa Goff, RN Di-
rector of Nursing at Gulf Pines
Hospital presented the program.
The program is designed to help
the residents identify their needs
and assist them in making an
Emergency Plan for evacuations
and emergency situations that
might involve them. Facts noted
in the film produced by the Flori-
da Department of Elder Affairs,
noted the lessons learned from
Hurricane Andrew in regards to
the older population as well as
the disabled. It was emphasized
that although they may be self-
sufficient on a day-to-day basis,
even the need for transportation
or a special diet or special medi-
cation requirements may be a sig-
nificant factor in their well being
in case of a natural disaster.
Each resident that attended
was given an emergency informa-
tion sheet for completion and
were to bring their medications
with them. Belinda Stephens,
manger of Liberty Manor, along
with Tessa Goff and Jo Anne Wil-
son, assisted the residents in
completing a check list and pre-
paring extra supplies and water
storage in the event of an emer-

needed to provide transportation
and shelter for those who have no

and area churches are urged to
identify those in their member-
ship that have Special Needs and
assist them in making a Plan,
and to provide transportation and
shelter if needed. September, Oc-

Education Secretary Reveals Highest School Financial
Increase Ever Reported.
.. Per Pupil Spending Up 29%
Overall education spending in
the United States will hit a record
$493.3 billion this school year.
up 50 percent since 1983, ac-
cording to the annual "Back-To-
School" forecast issued today by
Education Secretary Richard W.
Riley noted that the propor-
tion of the U. S. gross domestic
product (GDP) spent on education
increased from 6.7 percent in
1983 to 7.9 percent for school
year 1993-1994, the highest ever
reported. Additionally, per pupil
spending has increased 29 per-
"Even as our nation struggles
to meet the many diverse needs of
its communities, the commitment
to providing resources and sup-
port to better education is clear,"
Riley said. "Our goal now,
through the GOALS 2000: .Edu-
cate America Act, is to make sure
that the resources we have are
put to the best use in a systemat-
ic effort to improve education."
The forecast also predicts
higher levels of education-related
employment, record college en-
rollments, and increased; teacher
pay. In addition, the nation's pre-
school and kindergarten enroll-
ments have increased dramatical-
ly, as have the percentages of
minority enrollment in elemen-
tary and secondary schools.
According to the depart-
ment's National Center for Educa-
The U.S. 's expected to
spend $493.3 billion this year
overall on education, up three
percent since 1992. After adjust-
ing for inflation, education spend-
ing has increased 50 percent dur-
ing the last decade.
More than one in four
Americans, or an estimated 71.8
million persons, will be directly
involved in education this year as
students, teachers, administra-
tors, or support staff. Nearly 64
million students will be enrolled
and 7.9 million people employed;
A record number of stu-
dents--15 million-will enroll in
the nations colleges and universi-
ties this fall. More students will
earn associate, bachelor's, and
master degrees than ever before. ;
Education Spending Up At All
Public elementary, secon-
dary, and higher education
spending is expected to reach
$397.3 billion this year. arid $96
billion will be spent by private
schools and colleges. Revenues
for public elementary and secon-
dary. schools are projected to
cone equally from state and local
sources (47 percent each), with
federal contributions totalling,
about six percent.
K-12 SPENDING INCREASES
Spending for elementary and
Secondary schools-expected to
reach about $295.2 billion in
1993-94-is up 47 percent in the
last ten years, after adjusting for
inflation. In 1992-93, spending
totalled $279.4 billion.
SCHOOL SPENDING UP 29% IN
Record high per pupil spend-
ing for public elementary and sec-
ondary schools is predicted:
$5,920 in 1993-94, up almost
$200 from $5,721 in 1992-93.
The figure includes what schools
spend for current expenditures,
excluding capital outlays and in-
terest payments on school debt.
With inflation taken into account,
per pupil spending has grown 29
percent in the last ten years. Av-
erage public school teacher sala-
ries are expected to reach
$36,700, up by one percent over
last year after allowing for infla-
tion. Last year's public school
teacher salary averaged $35,334.
Enrollment gains, especially
among minorities-The nation's
preschool and kindergarten en-
rollment rose by nearly a quarter-
million students in the last year,
up form 6.4 million in fall 1992 to
an estimate of more than 6.6 mil-
lion for fall 1993.
SElementary and secondary
school enrollment, in 1993 will to-
tal 48.9 million, and is expected
to continue to rise through the
end of the decade, in response to
a trend in U. S. births evident
since 1977. (Enrollment reached
an all-time high of 51.3 million in
1971-72, which will be surpassed
The number of students en-
rolled in public and private ele-
mentary and secondary schools
will continue to rise in 1993 as it
has since 1985. Elementary
school enrollment (grades K-8) is
expected to climb from 35 million
last year to 35.7 million this year.
The nation's secondary
schools (grades 9-12) expect to
see an enrollment rise this year to
13.2 million, up from 12.8 million
last year. The growth in enroll-
ment of elementary school stu-
dents throughout the late 1980's
has been echoed in increased sec-
ondary school enrollment. Con-
tinuing enrollment increases in
grades 9-12 are expected into the
early part of the next century.
For 1993, 31.5 percent of ele-
mentary and secondary school-
age children are of minority back-
ground, up from 26.8 percent in
1983. The most rapidly expand-
ing group, Hispanics, increased
its enrollment share from 8.8 per-
cent to 11.4 percent over the
same time period.
NUMBER OF HIGH SCHOOL
After declining during the
past decade, the number of high
school graduates is expected to
climb in :1994-95. About 2.5 mil-
lion are expected to graduate in
1994. In the peak year of 1977,
nearly 3.2 million students grad-

EARNED DEGREES REACH

earned at colleges and universi-
ties during 1993-94 is expected
to match or exceed all-time highs.
Estimates are: associate degrees,

1,165,000; master's degrees,
378,000. Doctorates will equal

cine, theology, and law) will
match the 1985 high of 75,000.
HIGHER EDUCATION SPEND-
Colleges and universities will
spend about $198.1 billion in
1993-94, up three percent since
1992. In the past 10 years, col-
lege and university: spending
climbed 53 percent, after adjust-
help to find a new
ing for inflation. Average spend-
