Booby-trap Placed In

Beach Access Point
The matter of whether or not to allow beach driving on
south Gulf County beaches took an ugly turn late last week
with the placement of a booby-trap on a beach access point,
which was evidently connected to the argument.
David Sewell and his family, of Panama City, were exiting
the beach in their vehicle Sunday afternoon, when suddenly
two tires on their vehicle went flat. They were stranded. 40
miles from home with two flat tires.A.
Sewell got out of his vehicle to investigate the situation
and found a 4x4 timber partially buried in the sand with four .
rows of long, sharp spikes sticking up out of the board. The
spikes were driven into the board with precision so they would
puncture a tire from any angle.
The board, with some of its spikes showing, is shown in
the photo above. It was buried in the access path at right. The
access point is not an approved site but the property owner R .
has allowed vehicles to cross his land with no objections, pro- .
viding a point at the north end of the beach for exit.
The matter of who placed the dangerous booby-trap is un- -.
der investigation by the Sheriffs Department. ; .

Rebuttal Made to Charges of Pollution

Water System On

"Go" for W. C.

Construction Scheduled to
Begin First of the Week
Everything seems to be in place, now, for construction
to begin on the new White City water system, being built
by the Gulf County Commission with several grants and
loans. White City attracted the interest of the Florida De-
partment of Health about three years ago, when a case of
hepatitis was discovered in the community leading to a
suspected tainted water well.
The state of Florida provided a "down payment" of
$200,000 to provide a central water system for the com-
munity. An additional $500,000 has been added to the
fund by way of grants and loan funds to get the system
built and in operation.
Bids were let on the construction project several
weeks ago, but the project has never gotten under way. In
the meantime, the successful bidder sold his construc-
tion company to a Tallahassee firm and the process of
awarding a construction contract had to be started over
County Commissioner Michael Hammond told The
Star Tuesday the paper work had all been completed and
the County has scheduled a pre-construction conference
for today, with work to begin at about three points early
in the week.
Laying of the supply line from Port St. Joe's water
treatment plant and a distribution system in White City
will begin next week. The project is expected to take
about 90 days to complete.

Old Theatre Made Safe
Work has finally begun to make the facade to the old
Port Theatre building safer and more pleasing aesthetically,
with a new front put up over the entrance this past week.
The front will keep people from the lobby and protect them
from falling debris from walls and ceilings. The old build-
ing is on the for sale block with at least a couple of possi-
bilities for its future being discussed. In the meantime, peo-
ple can feel more comfortable walking in front of the build-






City Receives

An Offer of

Park Site

Union Bank Makes An Offer

Commission Can't Thn Down
The City of Port St. Joe has received an offer it doesn't feel it
can refuse, and if they get no negative reaction from two planned
public hearings on the matter, will purchase the First .Union
Bank park property .at the comer of Highway 98 and Fifth
Street. ':
First Union made the City an offer of the property recently,
with the City making a counter offer. First Union, took the offer
and now it's "fish or cut bait" on the deal. The City and First Un-
ion have agreed on a price of $4.50 per front foot which would
total approximately $145,719, well below the appraised value of
the property.
The City traded for the property between the First Union
park andiSt. Joseph Bay with St. Joseph Land and Development
Company last year. Acquisition of the additional property would
give the City a little more than a full city block for a park on the
shores of the bay.
The Commission already has a committee of several citizens
at work on a development plan for the new park property be-
tween Baltzell Avenue and St. Joseph Bay. As a matter of inter-
est, they made their first report to the Commission Tuesday
night. If the additional property is approved for purchase, their
job will probably be increased to develop the new property also.
For years, the City has used the property as a park but has
never owned an inch of the land. The property was bid on sever-
al times by prospective purchasers in. past years, but Florida
Bank turned down the offers. First Union Bank owns the proper-
ty now and has offered it to the City for purchase before placing
it on the market.
The Commission had told Union Bank they will purchase the
comer if public hearings at their meetings of November 16 and
December 7 are favorable. f
In other items of business, the Commission:
--Reived notice. from Florida. DOT, that Highway-98:- frm- -
9th Street to Industrial Road will be i-e-surfaced next year, with
work to begin about August.
-Agreed to construct a walking bridge alongside Niles Road
near the High School to allow foot traffic across a creek without
pedestrians having to walk in the street.
-Instructed Police Chief Carl Richter to stop boats .and vehi-
cles from parking overnight in the boat launch slip at the west
end of Fifth Street.

4 Nip,

Director Says Health

Department Did Job

Found No Pollution at Indian Pass
Despite Public Reports to Contrary
The subject of pollution at Indian Pass Beach took on another
*facet this week, as Andy Duke who says his camper trailer is the
*subject of the wayward sewage, claimed it wasn't so. Also, Dr.
"James Cersosimo wrote The Star the following letter about the
Health Departments role in the subject In a nutshell, his letter
states the Department inspected the travel trailer several times
and found it within the law. However, he says the Department is-
sued a notice to install a septic tank if he continued to use the
travel trailer as a permanent dwelling.
Read On:
'- Letter to the Editor:
Reference the front page article of The Star last week, on Oc-
.tober 29, 1993. I would like to state the facts for your readers'
Sand the other citizens of Gulf County and "set the record
SEPT. 3, 1993---"Sanitary nuisance" reported at Indian Pass
SEPT. 8, 1993-Investigation revealed no sewage on the
ground as reported. Existing RV had approval from the Gulf
County Building Department for electricity.
Due to the fact that the RV had been modified to become a
"permanent dwelling," a Notice to Abate a Sanitary Nuisance was
issued giving 30 days to install a state approved septic tank as
required by law.
SEPT. 15, 1993-Resident requested an extension as there
was no sewage on the ground. Small extension granted due to fi-
nancial hardship.
OCT. 12, 1993-Second complaint received. Site visit on
same day revealed no sewage on the ground.
OCT. 27, 1993-Third site visit revealed no sewage on
'ground. A second RV had been parked on the lot. A Notice to
Abate a Sanitary Nuisance was issued to actual property owners
bwho live out of state. Second Official Notice given to resident as
required before an injunction may be sought [as required by
state law.]

Since October 27, 1993, a fourth site visit and two visits by
the Gulf County Building Department inspector have also re-
vealed no sewage on the ground. '

To recap:
Six [6] unannounced site visits revealed no sewage on'
*State law was followed as a "permanent dwelling" is required
to have a septic tank.
*County Commissioners Warren Yeager, Chairman, and Billy
Traylor have been briefed as to the facts, which are a matter of
public record and are on file for anyone who disputes them.

.. Thi'sallent point is that, in fact, and -contrary to published
"learsay,~the '"Health Department" is doing Its Job.
It may be Interesting to note that we have recommended for
some time that a septic tank be required when electricity is
turned on, but this has not been implemented.
If anyone has questions or complaints of an environmental
health nature, they may contact Mr. Doug Kent, the Director of
Environmental Health at 227-1202. If someone is not satisfied
with his actions, please contact me at 227-1276.
Incidentally, the Environmental Health Specialist who han-
,dles sanitary nuisance complaints routinely drives 500-600
*miles per week around the county, so he does "move around"
,quite a bit.
In closing, and on a more positive note, I would like to pub-
licly thank the Gulf County Commissioners, especially Mr. Tray-
lor, for having the parking lot,at the Wewahitchka branch paved.
It has greatly alleviated drainage problems during heavy rains.

V Thank you,
Director, HRS
Gulf County Public Health Unit

(Thank you, Dr. Cersosimo, for stating the facts'succinctly
and their relationship with what the law requires. We realize
high emotions were involved in this problem and with high emo-
tions usually comes distorted claims. -Ed.]

with a search through only two

Even though we don't carry a

Be Kind To Rats
It was a long time ago when I learned not to get too attached to
animals. Animals usually don't live as long as do we humans, and
some animals are used for human consumption. My lesson in this
area was learned on a farm where I might be riding and playing
with a hog one day and eating bacon from him the next.
When I was a lad at home, it was nothing to kill and butcher
two or three hogs a day. As we boys got older Daddy let us do the
killing and he taught us the fine art of butchering a hog and cow.
That, however, was a long time ago. Today it hurts me to see
any animal mistreated or hurt. I can't stand to go off and not feed
my dog, Duke. I also feed Kitty-Kat if he needs it. I'm the type guy
who will stop and pick a turtle up off the road and carry him
Time and age does soften one, doesn't it?
Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy a good rib-eye steak from time
to time, and fried pork chops and turnip greens are high on my list
of good things to eat.
: The reason I'm telling you this is because I received a letter last
week and before I comment on it I want you to know how I feel
about animals. At first I thought the letter was a joke, but the more
I read the ipore I realized it was a serious piece of mail from a seri-
ous person.
The letter was from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals), and was signed by Leslie Gerstenfeld-Press. It was post-,
marked Washington, D.C. When I saw who had signed it and where
it came from, I knew it.wasn't a joke. Nothing surprises me when it
comes from Washington or California.
The letter started: "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
(PETA) wishes to ask for your assistance In ending needless suffer-
ing inflicted on rats."
That's right, folks. Ms. Gerstenfeld-Press wants us to stop hurt-
ing rats; not "dirty rats" as in the movies, but real, four-legged rats
that eat holes in your house and barns and chew their way into
every sack of anything you have. Next to cockroaches, rats are the
nastiest varmints on earth. Actually, rats are nastier than roaches.
They're filthy
Ms. Gerstenfeld-Press asked me to do several things in her let-
ter to alleviate suffering to rats. She asked that I start offering "hu-
mane rodent control services." This would Involve live trapping of
rats and euthanasia, "with methods approved by the American Vet-
erinary Medical Association."
She also asked that I offer "rodent-proofing services so that cli-
ents can prevent future conflicts with rats."
Doesn't this all sound like a joke to you? Well, it isn't, and I
have the letter to prove it.
Ms. Gerstenfeld-Press is rowing with one oar, and playing with
a few cards short of a full deck. If you want my opinion.
She also asked that I discontinue the use of and sale of poison
baits, snap traps, glueboards, and ,any other methods that cause
severe, prolonged suffering (to rats). '
Well, my answer to Ms. Cerstenfeld-Press can be answered in
ten words:
NO, NO. NO, NO, NO. NO, NO. NO, NO, NO. and two to grow
on, NO, NOI!!!!!!
I'll Just bet the government has its hand in this organization
some way or another. And I'll also bet that our tax money is being
used for these silly.-ignorant letters.
Be kind to rats?!?! HORSE FEATHERS! Il

"Shoot, her granddaddy is the

Is his favorite by far."
'You don't say!" This was too
good to be true. I bought me a
new bathing suit and started
sucking my stomach in.

of roses. I remember that first

this was going to be a good mar-

cotton to me. but he wouldn't for-
get his precious Cathy.
He looked very sick when we
left for St. Louis and some ball
games on our honeymoon. "Poor
fella. Cathy. I'm afraid he won't
make it 'til we get back."
We're gone less than a week!
Five days if I remember correctly.
We pull up the large, long drive-

in the backyard-doing side

I couldn't believe it!

Little Nikolas Scheffer, one
year old son of Vickie and Larry,
Scheffer of Port St. Joe, under-
went open heart surgery October .
27 in Boston, Massachusetts to
help save his left lung.;-,
This was the third surgical
attempt to help hit heart pump
blood to his left lung, replacing
an earlier shunt in surgery at
Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
The shunt had become plugged.
He is currently doing fine accord-
ing to his grandmother. Luv'erne
Ramsey, and is out of the inten-
sive care unit. He now has a little
fluid in each lung, but It hasn't
progressed to pneumonia.
Nickolas will never be in a
position where he won't be in
need of a heart transplant, but
this surgery, if successful, would
eliminate the need for a lung and
heart transplant in the future.

Help River

The use of "Navigation Win-
dows" has brought about consis-
tent and dramatic increases of
commercial barge tonnages on
the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint Rivers this year.
During the drought years of
the 1980's, commercial use of the
river system was dramatically
curtailed, ,
Although only one window
was needed in 1992, the drop in
upstream rainfall in 1993 has re-
quired implementation every
month since June, with excellent
results. July 5-15 saw 27,000
tons moving, with a high of
52,430 tons being reached during
a similar period in August.
The Increased reliability of
the ACF Rivers System has en-
hanced the marketability of
southeast Alabama, southwest
/ Georgia. and northwest Florida.
Since Tri Rivers Association's
initiation of the Navigation Win-
dow concept, other rivers in the
United States that have similar
problems have wither adopted
similar methods.

Sharks Blank Gladiators, 37-0

The Port St. Joe Sharks used
a devastating ground game
against the Havana Gladiators
last Friday night, to gain a 37-0
District win. The Shark defense
was also effective in grounding
Darwin Harris' air attack, allow-
ing him to complete' only eight of
25 passes, while intercepting
three; one for a touchdown.
Ninamdi Frazier ran for two
- touchdowns and jBryari Butts
threw for two more. Butts com-
pleted only three passes of eight
attempts, but two were the big
ones, which put points on the
scoreboard. The Sharks' other
score came on an intercepted
Darwin Harris' pass by Jamaail
The two teams sparred in a
steady mist as the game began,
with both defenses holding their
foes on their first possession, but
as the Sharks' went into punt for-
mation, Eric Ramsey got a, skid-
der to handle, getting the punt off
late. It was partially blocked by a.
Havana defender with another
Gladiator falling into Ramsey and
called for roughing the kicker.
Still, the ball changed hands
again before the Sharks could get
on track. Havana runners
couldn't handle the ball on a
hand-off in the backfield. fum-

bling it and Channon Fennell re-
covered for the Sharks, putting
them in good position on the Ha-
vana 12. Antwione Allen lunged
forward for three yards, then
Butts for two more before Frazier
bowled across the goal line on his
second try. The run for the extra
point was stopped short, but the
Sharks had all they were to need
to win the game.
The Sharks' next score came
-2:25 later, when Frazier broke
loose on the first play from scrim-
mage and raced 55 yards to score
again. Allen ran for two extra
points and the Sharks had a 14-0
lead at the end of the quarter.
S Barry Adkison continued to
show accuracy in his role as re-
serve kicker, when he drilled
three points right through the up-
rights with 10 seconds remaining
in the first half.
On their first possession in'
the second half the Sharks moved
the football 65 yards in a minute,

he recovered a Gladiator fumble
on the Shark 17 yard line.
Sparked by a 36 yard gallop by
Allen and a 22-yard pass recep-
tion by Baxter, the Sharks
moved all the way down the field
on four plays before scoring on
Baxter's pass reception.
The Gladiators' most serious
challenge of the Sharks' goal line
came late in the period, but was
stopped by an intercepted pass,
picked off by Chad Quinn.
The Sharks' final score came
about mid-way in the final period
on a spectacular play. Quinn was
in the right place again, when the
Havana pass receiver had the ball
just hit his finger tips and glance
off. Before it hit the ground,
Quinn scooped it up and raced
down the sidelines for 57 yards
and pay dirt. Adkison booted it
through the uprights and the
Sharks had their second District
win, 37-0.
Friday night the Sharks face
still another District test when

the* girls' race starting at 12:30
and the boys' race following at

In the boys' race, the Gators
fought hard to secure the final
qualifying spot. The boys were
without top runner Luke Taunton
and the rest of the team worked
extremely hard to send the team
to the regional meet. Adam Taun-
ton led the Gators with a 35th
place finish, completing the 3
mile course in 19 minutes, 44
seconds, a personal record. Also
running well for the Gators were:
Daniel Taunton, 37th place

(19:55); Lonnie Laster, 39th place
(19:58), Jay Laster, 40th place in
(19:59); James Taunton, 47th
place in (20:32); and Josh Baxley,
52nd place in (21:24), his best
time this year. The boys tied with

come. 7th grader, James Taun-
ton, the Gators' 6th runner,

to score the final spot for the Ga-
In the girls' race, Holly Atkins
led the girls to a spot in the re-
gional meet. She finished 6th
overall, completing the 2 mile
course in a time of 13 minutes
and 17 seconds. Also running
well for the Gators were: Nichole
Lance, 10th place (13:53); Thelma

fer Nelson, 27th place (15:16);
Ashley Hanlon, 28th place in
(15:20); Kristy Gay, 35th place
(15:49); and Amanda Davis, 37th
place (15:53).
'The boys ran as well as they
could and did a great job," said
Coach Jay Bidwell. "James Taun-
ton showed a great deal of heart
for a 7th grader in pulling out the
win over Earnest Ward. The girls
on the other hand could have run
a little better. Hopefully, they will
run their best race of the season
this Saturday and give us a
chance to go to the state meet".
Coach Bidwell urges everyone
in both Wewa and St. Joe to come
out to the country club this Sat-
urday to cheer on both the Gators
and the Sharks as they try to win
a berth in the state meet.

Tapper House Being Restored to Its Former Glory

One of City's Oldest Homes Built Early During Re-birth of Old St. Joseph by Max Kilbourn Family

Old Home Originally Cost $3,500
to Build; Sold to Tappers for $2,500 ....

The old Tapper home has stood at the comer of
Highway 98 and Eighth street in Port St. Joe for at
least 75 years,,virtually unchanged.
According to the best of Ida Ethel Browne's
memory, the home was built in 1918 or 1919 by a
couple from New York and was first occupied by
Mrs. Brown's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Max Kilbourn,
who owned a Pogy business and an ice plant busi-
ness in early Port St. Joe. The home is one of the
oldest in Port St. Joe, which is still standing.
The home was built approximately 10 years after
Port St. Joe was inhabited for the second time after
its destruction following the heydey of old St. Jo-
seph. The town was reborn on a fishing, naval stores
and lumber economy and attracted a few families to
the area to occupy the city once again, after it had
been deserted for nearly half a century.
The Kilbourns paid $3,500 for the home when it
was new and sold it to the Tappers for $2,500 fin
The Kilbourns moved into the newly-built home
and made it their home for a few years.
After the Kilbourn's. moved out of the house, in
the late 1920's, the Kilbourns rented the house to
the W. J. Belins [J. C.Belin's father] for a year and
then for a short while to the I. C. Nedleys. The Tap-
pers bought the house early in 1930 and lived there
until the deatl of Captain and Mrs. Robert Tapper.
One of their spns, William R. [Billy] Tapper contin-
ued to occupy the home until his death. The family
then gave the home to the Catholic Church to be
used as a Parsonage for the Priest of St. Joseph.
Recently, the present 'Catholic Priest, Father
Thom Crandall, moved into another home and the
Tapper House was put up for sale.
Recently, Dr. Owen R. Oksanen purchased, the
home and he and his wife have launched into a re-
storing plan. with the idea of using the old home as
an office for Dr. Oksanen's medical practice once the
restoration work is finished.
.- ,'

"I have wanted that home since .we first came to
Port St. Joe, 10 years ago. I just fell in love with it
the first time I saw it," Mrs. Oksanen said.
Mrs. Oksanen says the couple has applied to the
National Historic Registry, in an attempt to include
the home in the Registry of Historic Homes. "For that,
reason, we are being very particular with our work,
that it faithfully adheres to the original architecture
and design of the old home," she said.
Mrs. Oksanen said the only changes they plan to
make are to equip it to be compatible with the, needs
of handicapped people. '"We're even making an at-
tempt to maintain the original windows and window
panes as we remove the layers of paint to re-finish
A parking area will be placed at the rear of the
home for patient parking and the front will be left as
it now is, including the shrubs and plants.
"We've done a lot of work and as we tackle each
new project in the home, we find a new problem.
But, the house is 75 years old; there's bound to be
problems with it here and there," Mrs. Oksalen said.
A young man by the name of Reinhard Windolf is
doing the renovation work and if you get to talk to
Reinhard for a few moments, you will soon realize
his is a labor of love of old structures more than it is
a love of gainful employment.
Another young couple, Clay and Donni O'Claire
are pains-takingly removing and dismantling the old
windows, taking care not to break the original blown
glass panes, and restoring them to, their original
beauty and functional use.
It's really a toss-up of who is most proud of the
old home and the opportunity to restore it, the Oksa-
nens or the ones actually doing the work.
Plans are to have all the work completed and Dr.
Oksanon's medical practice moved into the house by
,January 1, but everyone seems to be enjoying the
renovation process so much, it might take a little

Tapper house as it appears today, with restoration in progress.

fore it, and five other ships, were
ordered to Haiti by President
Clinton to enforce the UN im-

was not allowed to dock with per-

prepare for the return of the
country's elected president, Jean-

Reports on


Scoutmaster Bob Bearden re-
ported to the sponsoring Rotary
Club last Thursday, that the'
members of Troop 47 had just re-
turned from a profitable and in-
teresting week end spent at the
annual Camporee.
Bearden said he took several
new Scouts to the outing this
year, for the first time. "Still, they
did exceptionally well," he report-
ed, "Some of the boys had been
Scouts for only a week and I just
told them to stand by someone
who looked like they knew what
they were doing in the several ac-
tivities and either nod approval or
do what they did."
"We came home with a first
place 'in Camporeel" Bearden
said. "Troop 47 has received a
first place ribbon at the annual
outing for eight years in a row."
'The speaker said the Scout
ranks are sort of slim right now
due to the fact that the Cubs
have been inactive for a few
years. "We have a large, enthu-
,sidstic group in the: Cub Scouts
now, so the Scout Troop should
start growing in just a short

Student of the Week is Second
Grader Blake Butler
Doris Jean Whitten chose
Blake Butler as the second grade,
student of the week. Blake is sev-
en, and the son of Terry and
Phoebe (Kemp) Butler. His favor-
ite subject in school is reading.
When he grows up. he would like
to be a police officer. Some of
Blake's favorite things to do are
to ride bikes with his friends and
play with Legos. Building with Le-
gos help him to do other things;
he also likes building things at
his shed. When asked if he could
have one wish, what would it be,
Blake didn't hesitate to say
"peace". Blake cites his papa and
granny as important persons in
his life because "they take me,
fishing a lot." Blake is a great
choice for student of the week.
U.S. Navy Band Play to a

Thanks to former WES and
WHS student Ceonnie Whitfield
for helping secure this great U.S.
Navy band, Country Current.
They thrilled and entertained a

country classics as well as blue

Curious George at the Marina
Students in K-3 were treated



to a live stage play at the Marina
Civic Center in Panama City on

Fall Festival a Huge Success
At press time, the amount of
money the PTO earned is ,un-
known, but I can say that the Fall
Festival was a huge success. Over
30 booths were prepared by
teachers with assistance by par-
ents. The children had a great
time at the festival and all who
worked in any capacity are to be
commended. The weather even
cooperated -not a drop until the
festival was within five minutes of
being over. PTO President April
-Andrews was. very ,pleased with.
the big turn-out.
The Bite
When teacher aide Sharon
Owens' niece, Marisa Reed, bit,
Jacob Carr at school eone day
naturally Sharon reported the in-
cident to her sister, who immedi-
ately had Marisa apologize to Ja-
cob the next day. She told Marisa
to apologize in front of Sharon so
she would be sure she did. Obe-
diently, Marisa told Jacob she
was sorry that she had bitten
him. "Oh, that's okay," Jacob
said. "My dog bites me all the
Matching Donation
WES would like to thank the
Modern Woodsmen of America
Company for agreeing to match,
dollar for dollar, the proceeds of
the Fall Festival. They have
agreed to match up to, but not
exceeding, $2,500. The school
secretary,. Sandra Husband, told
me that over $2,600 was made,
so it looks as if the Modern
Woodsmen of Crawfordville will
be donating $2,500 to our school.
, We really appreciate this wonder-
ful donation. Thanks very much!

Friday night, the Gators host the Cottondale Hornets for home-
coming, ending a week's celebration (after the dance, that is). many
alumni have begun returning to visit WHS-the last couple of years
have been our largest crowds ever at school on Homecoming day.
Many return at night for the game and crowning of the'King, and
Queen. Join us for the ball game and dance.
This past Wednesday, WHS's new School Advisory Council held
its organizational meeting. Dr. David Bidwell was there for orienta-
tion. This group will be charged with assisting in identifying school
problems and trying to offer solutions that will result in improved
educational performance for students at WHS. WES committee
members also attended the orientation session.
Donkey basketball returns to WHS Tuesday afternoon. Admis-
sion is $2, and the public is invited. WES students are also invited.
If you'd like to get to know a donkey (4-legged, that is) up close arid
personal, contact John Franzese at 639-2228 or 639-2716.
More parking and new lighting in front of WHS are just abut
completed. When the stipes are added, the project will be finished.
Several WHS cross Country runners have advances to regional
competition. See Coach Bidwell's article in sports to get the details.
Both boys and girls basketball practices are underway. John
Franzese and John Taunton are readying the troops for the upcom-
ing season. Plan on getting to as many games as you can this year.

The following Is a summary found in a recent Pediatric Cur-
rents, Vol. 42, No. 4, 1993. It was written by Marian Wright Edel-
man, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund, the
successful and long-standing children's advocacy organization, and
was included in her recent book, The Measure of Our Success: A Let-
ter to My Children and Yours. There seems to be much we could all
apply to our daily lives:
Twenty-five Lessons For Life
1. There is no free lunch. Don't feel entitled to anything you
don't sweat and struggle for.
2. Set goals and work quietly and systematically toward them.
3. Assign yourself. Don't wait around to be told what to do.
4. Never work Just for money or for power. They won't help
save your soul or build a decent family or help you sleep at
5. Don't be afraid of taking risks or of being criticized.
6. Take parenting a family life seriously and insist that those
you work for and who represent you do.
7. Remember that your wife is not your mother or your maid,
but your partner and friend.
8. Forming families is serious business.
9. Be honest. J
.,9 Reme.mb.er arid help America remember that the fellowship
of human beings is more important than the fellowship of
'race and class In a democratic society.
11. Sell the shadow for the substance. Struggle to keep person-
al, organizational, and public priorities straight.
12. Never give up.
13. Be confident that you can make a difference.
14. Don't ever stop learning and improving your mind.
15. Don't be afraid of hard work or of teaching your children to
S-work.' '
16. "Slow Down and Live." A job done too hurriedly is never well
17. Choose your friends carefully.
18. Be a can-do, will-try person.
19. Try to live in the present..
20. Use your political and economic power for the community
and others less fortunate.
21. Listen for "the sound of the genuine" within yourself and
22. You are in charge of your own attitude.
23. Remember your roots, your history, and the forebears'
shoulders on which you stand.
24. Be reliable. Be faithful.
25. Always remember that you are never alone.

Girl Scouts

Keep God

In Pledge

A vote by approximately 2000
delegates to the National Council
Session/46th Convention of Girl
Scouts of the U.S.A. (GSUSA)
kept the word "GOD" in the Girl
Scout Promise' and allowed indi-
vidual members to substitute
wording appropriate to their own
spiritual beliefs for the word
"GOD" if they choose to do so.
While the belief in a spiritual
principle is fundamental to Girl
Scouting, Girl Scouts of the
U.S.A. recognizes that some relig-
ious groups, such as Buddhist
and Hindus. as well as cultural
groups such as American Indi-
ans, believe in a motivating spiri-
tual force, but use words other
'than "GOD" to express that spiri-
tual force. Today's vote allows in-
dividuals to substitute a.word or
words for "GOD" in the Girl Scout
Promise if they so choose. Dele-
gates agreed to allow this flexibili-
ty because it will facilitate GSU-
SA's commitment to serving the
increasingly diverse religious, cul-
tural, racial, and ethnic popula-
tions of the United States.
The Girl Scout reads: On my,
honor, I will try: To serve God and
my country, To help people at all
times, And to live by the Girl Scout
Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., a
private. voluntary organization.
makes no.attempt to define or In-
terpret the word "GOD" in the
Girl Scout Promise. '"We believe-
that each member must establish
for herself the nature of her be-
lief,.and we recognize that relig-
ious instruction is the responsi-
bility of 'parent and religious
leaders," said B. LaRae Orullian.
Girl Scout National President.
In the Girl Scouts' 81-year
* history, there have been six ver-
sions of the Girl Scout Promise.
Changes are not made without
in-depth study and extensive de-
liberation. As society changes.,
however, it Is sometimes neces-
sary for Girl Scouts to reflect
those changes in the Promise.
For this reason, the National
Council also voted to appoint a
task group of local and national
representatives .to review the
wording of the Girl Scout Promise
and Law. Their task will be to en-
sure that the language is contem-
porary and meaningful to our In-
creasingly diverse, pluralistic
society, while continuing to re-
Dect the fundamental principles
of the Girl Scout movement. The
task group will present its recom-
mendations to the next National
Council. which meets in 1996.
