'Kids will enjoy live pony rides and everyone can take part in
the "Orbotron", a mechanical ride being brought to Port St. Joe
by the Merchants Association. All rides will be free.
THE BIG PARADE will be the largest one in several. years,
according to Tonya Nixon, who has been the chairman of Festi-
val Day arrangements. Bob Bearden, parade chairman says, the
annual holiday march will begin promptly at 4:30. Bearden said
he and others will be monitoring the entire route of the floats,
bands, horses, special entries, antique cars and other unique
entries as they make their way north on Reid Avenue and south
on Williams Avenue. 'We're going to be trying to keep children
from the path of the parade because of the extreme danger of
them getting hurt. A child was run over and killed in a recent
Panama City Christmas parade and we certainly don't want that
happening here. We want people to be spectators, enjoying the
parade, and not statistics," Bearden said. Because of the danger
there will be no candy thrown from floats to tempt into darting
into the street to recover it. ,
A TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY will begin at approximately,
5:30 after the parade, which will feature singers from choirs
from the area churches presenting carols and other Christmas
music. The music program will continue for about a half hour,
when Mayor Frank Pate will turn on the lights to the giant
Christmas tree as a climax to the day's activities.
Intracoastal Waterway Imporant Link for Five States
The importance of the Gulf
Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). to.
the Eastern Gulf and the Mobile
area was a major topic of. discus-
sion at'the 88th Annual Conven-
tion of the Gulf Intracoastal Ca-
nal Association (GICA). GICA met
recently with the American Wa-
terways Operators, Southern Re-
gion at Point Clear, Alabama.
The GIWW extending 1,200
miles from St. Marks, Florida to
Brownsville, Texas is a shallow
draft waterway linking' together
the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee
and Flint Rivers, the Mississippi
River and ports along the coast of
Louisiana and Texas. Last year
the GIWW carried 115 million
tons of cargo, making it the third
busiest waterway in the nation.
Of this, 24 million tons moved in
barges on the GIWTW east of New

Lane Gilchrist, General Man-
ger of Fuel and Environmental Af-
fairs for Gulf Power Cpmpany of

his firm is heavily dependent
upon the Gulf Intracoastal Water-
ways (GIWW) to supply up to 7
millions tons of coal a year to its
power plants in Florida.
These seven million tons of
coal' are part of the 51 million
tons of cargo that moves on wa-

IT SEEMS AS IF SUDDENLY everyone is concerned over the
number of people-especially children-meeting death in mobile
home fires. The concern has resulted in a rash of articles urging
Residents of homes, and especially mobile homes, to install
smoke alarms for their own safety. One article candidly pointed
out 'that the alarms wouldn't put out a fire, but they will give a
shrill warning when. even a small amount of smoke is detected in
a dwelling, thus alerting the residents to possible danger.
That is enough warning to save lives. People become horrified
by the thought of children "burning" up in a fire inside a home.
'The truth is, rarely does anyone "burn up". 'Ninety-nine out of a
hundred victims are dead before the fire even reaches them. You
see, a person merely has to get a little smoke in his lungs and
his life is snuffed out. If a person is asleep when fire breaks out,
the smoke* can-and usually does-kill the sleeper before he
awakens. He or she die in their sleep, overcome by smoke.
YOU SEE THE NEED for smoke detectors? It's the smoke in
the early moments of a fire which kills! A smoke detector gives
ample warning to get out of a building before being overcome by
Looking back through The Star's files for the past year, to de-
termine just how many people had died in Gulf County in fires
during the past year, we discovered one more than we remem-
bered. We could remember nine in three fires from Mexico Beach
and Gulf County; seven children and two adults. But wait, there
was another mobile home fire fatality last year. A Highland View
man was overcome by smoke and died in his mobile home just
five days prior to Thanksgiving.
That's a grand total of 10 people in a year, meeting death by
fire in a dwelling within a radius of 22 miles in a sparsely settled
rural county. That's criminal!
NEMOURS CLINIC IS urging that you have a smoke alarm
installed in your home this holiday season; especially if you re-
side in a mobile home. They are making this suggestion in an ef-
fort to prevent any additional child deaths due to fire. The Star
joins Nemours in this effort to get every child .protected from this
particular danger to small lives. Even as we were writing this
piece for the editorial page we learned of another mobile home
fire containing children. This time, however, the dwelling con-
tained a smoke alarm, sounding the alarm and waking the chil-
dren so they could get out. A success story for smoke alarms!
A funeral can cost $2,500 for a simple service but a
smoke alarm costs approximately $10.00.
ISN'T IT STRANGE HOW the opponents to NAFTA used al-
most the same arguments against the pact that those who advo-
cate shopping at home use at this time of the year, as we are
getting into the Christmas-shopping season?
Opponents to NAFTA saw the deal with our neighbors-
mostly to the south-as a measure which would cost us valuable
jobs because the shopping emphasis would shift to Mexico and
its cheap labor. There was none of this "It's my money, I can
spend it for the least expensive goods if I want to. There's noth-
ing wrong with saving money." How many times have you heard,
this? What arguments did you hear against this position in the
days of arguing over NAFTA?
Boosters of home towns are offering the same argument the
boosters of NAFTA did. They were such arguments as: You get
value out of shopping at home which will balance out and even
surpass the few cents saved from shopping in a giant discount
store. You save time for the most part and time is money in'
,the raw! /
You get the merchant's personal guarantee you are getting
value received and-most important of all-he takes the mer-
chandise back if it is found to be faulty. Your local merchant
spends a considerable amount of the profits he has made from
his sales to you in bettering his community through taxes paid,
direct donations to this cause or that one, through aid to our
schools, churches, civic activities. Think of an attribute'in your
community and think of whether or not it could exist without
money-where does that money come from and would you care
to be without that particular additive to your life-style.
THERE'S ANY NUMBER OF good solid reasons' to at least
give your local merchant an opportunity to fill your needs before
you go out of town. If he can't, even he won't mind if you go else-
where to make that purchase. In fact, he will probably make a
suggestion as to where you might obtain a particular item for
the best value and with the greatest dependability in the source
Shopping first at home boosts your home town and makes it
a solid performer in providing your needs in the most convenient
manner. Aren't we all looking for convenience?

The Window Over The Kitchen Sink
Several times before, in this space,.I have written about differ-
ent, unusual places in the American Southern home. Several times
I mentioned the importance of the almost extinct front porch and
its importance to quality family life. One time I pointed out that al-
most all homes have a 'Junk drawer" where everything from nuts
and bolts to tractor parts are stored, just so they willbe handy if
you can't find them where .they should be. ....
STo the best of my memory, dear hearts, I don't believe I have
ever, in my almost.ten years of writing this column, mentioned the
importance of the WINDOW OVER THE KITCHEN SINK, hereafter
known as WOTKS. Perhaps you haven't given it much thought, but
the WOTKS is Just as important as the bathroomss, the laundry
room, or the kitchen itself. Let me explain.
Almost all Southern homes have a window or two over the
kitchen sink. The window usually faces the back of the house, but I
have' seen some that face the front. Our WOTKS is on the back of
our house. I have seen a few homes that didn't have a WOTKS. If
yours is one of them, I feel sorry for you and your family, because
you are missing a lot of what's happening in the outside world.
You may not realize it, but much of the "standing time" at home
is spent by someone in front of.the sink, looking out the WOTKS.
That's why the window was put there, so the person working at the
sink would have something to look at besides a wall. It's important
that one's mind be occupied with something other than washing
dishes or preparing a meal when one is doing such work. Believe
nie, men, it's true, arid I can say that with the conviction of experi-
The WOTKS in our home serves many purposes. Since most
people who come to our home come to the back door, we can look
out the WOTKS and see ,vho it is. And it's particularly useful since
we don't have d doorbell, and it's hard to hear someone knocking
on the door downstairs. We can just raise the WOTKS and scream,
"Come on in!" .,
The inside ledge'of the'WOTKS also serves a useful purpose. It's
a second place for run-overs from the "junk drawer". Almost every-
thing, that Is found and doesn't have a place is usually placed on
the ledge. As I write this article, there is a fish hook, a hair braid, a
pencil, theltop to the cat f6od can (plastic). a tall glass from Ange-
Slo's, and a device that is used for heaven knows what. There is also
a potted plant of some kind sitting there that appears to need some
water or sunshine. When company comes, we usually put all this
,stuff inrthe jiunik drawer, except the potted plant, of course.
Oh yes. there was a small pile of loose change there, but I put it
in my pocket. .
SThe WOTKS is a good place to stand and drink coffee early in
the morning. From our WOTKS we can see what's going on at the

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
'. Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
With the approach of the holidays, parents need to give specific
thought to the age appropriateness of their gifts and those from
other family members to the children in the family. Parents tend to
buy too much, and in their eagerness, often buy items that are too
advanced for the child's age.
No parent should spend beyond his ability to pay for gifts.
When parents take out Christmas loans and buy excessively, the
child never learns the value of anything, and they become adults
expecting an inflated standard of living that becomes a rude awak-
ening when they have to supply the funds to support themselves.
Children do not need their own telephones until they can pay
for them. They never need televisions in their bedrooms.
Parents should refuse to feel inadequate as parents because
they do not furnish everything advertised on television.
The plea is for parents to establish standards and ground rules
of family behavior. Children are always more comfortable and hap-
py if they grow and develop within definite guidelines.
A child will say he wants to play some sport. Without thinking.
the parent will go and buy the most expensive complete equipment
for the sport. A better approach would be to get some second-hand
equipment until the child demonstrates his interest is more than a
passing fancy. If the 'child persists and demonstrates some profi-
ciency the more expensive equipment can be purchased as a reward
for perseverance. You should communicate to your children your
expectations for them to work at tasks that are presented. They
should not stop an activity just because it has become harder. To
persist in an activity that has become hard helps to build character
and responsibility. On the other hand, one should not expect per-
sistence when the situation is an impossible one. To persist with no
possibility of success is demoralizing.
When children express desires for music, gymnastics, and
dance lessons, these should not be started until the child is old
enough to understand he is expected to 'do the expected practice
and attend classes.
Older children will want motor bikes, go carts, guns, and cars.
These are all potentially lethal. Parents should say "No" and mean,
it. Preventing a child from participating in dangerous activities is a
major parental responsibility. The child may complain bitterly, but
at least he is alive to complain. -,

rans Affairs (VA) has reduced
from seven to five percent the in-
terest rate on loans veterans have'
taken against their government
life insurance policies.
'This rate drop means a sav-
ing of $6.4 million in interest
charges for more than 100,000
veterans who currently have
loans against their policies at the
higher rate," said VA Secretary
All policyholders with seven-
percent loans automatically had
their loansreduced to the five-
percent rate on October 1. The"
rate reduction will be in effect at
least until October 1, 1994.ra
Nearly 2.3 million veterans
who have policies prefixed with V.
W, RH. J or JR in the National
Service Life Insurance program
since November 2, 19S7, have a
variable interest rate that can
range between five and 12 per-
cent depending on investment

The-Agency Ior Health Carei
administration's new Guide to
Nursing Home Charges in Florida
shows that over the last year and
a half the median daily cost for a
semi-private room has increased
These brochures, categorized
by Community Health Purchasing
Alliance (CHPE) Regions, compare
services 'anrid prices for every
nursing home in Florida. As in
the previous five nursing home
guides, the lowest median charg-
es were in Northwest Florida,
with per day charges running be-
'tween $76 and $80. And, as in
the past, the highest charges
were in Southeast Florida, with a
median cost of $105.
According to the guide, in
1992,; Florida consumers paid
over $471 million out-of-pocket
for nursing home care. With the
median price of a room costing
$90 a day, a one year stay in a,
nursing home could run nearly
$33,000. Individuals and their
family members usually have to
foot the bill for the majority of
this care, because Medicare cov-
erage in nursing homes is very
limited and because Medicaid
pays only after personal assets

"Dental YH alth
FRANK b. MAY, D.M.D.
TO THE RESUCE
If you have one or more miss--
ing teeth creating gaps that should
be filled, you may want to consider
the fixed bridge.
Missing teeth can do more than
affect the shape of your face. They
can also throw your other teeth out
of alignment and cause other seri-
ous dental problems. If you choose
a fixed bridge to solve the problem,
you'll have "new" teeth that will be
permanently fixed in your mouth.
You won't have to take them out to
clean them. They can be brushed
the same way your natural teeth are
and flossed (with a little dexterity
from the under side) to remove bac-
teria and food particles.
Before your dentist makes a
fixed bridge, he'll check the health
of the adjacent or supporting teeth.
Stop by and visit the
most complete tackle
store in the area. .

They have to be strong and healthy'
with enough underlying bone struc-
ture to support the denture. Then
crowns will be made for the sup-
porting teeth to make them even
Finally, the replacement teeth
are permanently joined to the sup-
porting crowns and the entire bridge
is bonded into place using a special
bonding cement. This gives a per-
manent tooth replacement that will
last many, many years.

Parents Make The Differ-
Help your children learn the'
skills they need to work with oth-
ers. Give your children plenty of
chances to play with other chil-
dren. Show your child ways to
iesole conflicts. Make sure she
has the words to express her
emotions (a child who can say. "I
am angry when you do that." Is
less likely to hit someone- or to
call them a "dweeb"). As'children
grow older,, their relation with
friends becomes an iiiiportant
part of their self-esteem.

GCCC Game Cancelled!
The December 4 GCCC game scheduled with Jefferson Davis'
College to be played at WHS gym has been changed and will be
played in Panama City instead. Difficulty arranging the 35 second
shot clocks, plus other difficulties led Coaqh Rob Jenkins: to make a
last minute change. .
With a shortened season, it's not too, unusual to find 3 & 4
games scheduled the same nights. Often our basketball "day" starts
at 4 or 4:30 & runs 'til 9:30 at night. That's a lot of games to see-
pick some and come out to support the Gators. both girls and boys.
Prices for most nights are $3 for adults and $2 foristudents. We
have to be able tb pay omricials, and it is costly to run 2-4 games a
night. .. .
Well, by this printing we will have about 3 weeks of concentrat-
ed class time left to the beginning of Christmas break, December
22.; That's enough time to make or break your grades for, the first
semester. Parents, give them a push academically-let them know
that it is not the time to let things slide. Students need to realize
that they need to be accountable for grades and actions. That's
what they need to be taught, rather than always trying to find the
easier way to do things.
A big thanks go to the WHS staff and students for helping with
the Thanksgiving basket program. The money, and food collected at'
WHS really put the Ministerial Association's program over the top.
Now it's time to start thinking about helping others at Christmas.
Has, your student lost his/her jacket? It's unreal how many,

So. Who Is Threatening the
Existence of Whom? Huh?
U.S. Senators Bob Graham, Connie Mack, and U.S. Rep. Pete Peter-
son should stay tuned to the woodpecker versus people controversy in
Florida's Liberty County-population 5,500-with 51 percent of its land
in the Apalachicola National Forest. It isn't going to just fade away.
Woodpeckers-specifically the Red-Cockaded (RWP) specie that has
been declared endangered by an act of the U.S. government-
outnumber people considerably in Liberty County. In fact, the majority
rule of woodpeckers in their county and city-folk throughout Florida
and the nation have made the (LCR) Liberty County Redneck the endan-
gered specie, say local leaders at Bristol, the county seat.
Because' of heavy-handed U.S. Forest Service regulations setting
aside huge portions of the forest as woodpecker habitat and cutting
drastically the traditional timber harvest, it's now almost like the 1920's
depression in Liberty County.
That's the reason, fellows, the woodpecker versus people issue is
not going to just fade away. Man is really the most important specie
:around. Although some contend all species are created equal, the hu-
man species really determines what happens on the ground.
You'd better give some thought to a "birds and people" plan to man-
age Florida's national forest, rather thar the "birds or-people" now in ef-
fect, say some qualified people in the field, including Tallahassee land
management consultant W.V. McConnell.
McConnell, a retired forester with 30 years in the U.S. Forest Ser-
vice (10 in the Apalachicola), said 50 years of management on the Apa-
lachicola transformed cut-over degraded wastelands into 'a productive,
resource-rich woodland containing the world's largest population of
"By what strange logic do the management practices which pro-
duced such ,dramatic results suddenly become unacceptable? There
are, no doubt, better ways to manage, but must the entire system shut
down while these new ways are being found and tested?" he asked.
McConnell said he has found new evidence-utilizing pictures of
the forest throughout the years, that shows the red-headed woodpecker
living quite well in cut-over forests not containing the large old-grovwth
trees that environmentalists claim they need to survive.
He is preparing for the forest service and congress a balanced aged
forest that can accommodate both the woodpecker and people. "It is a
plan to manage the entire ecosystem rather than the: individual specie
(as is now the pase)," he said.
Similar arguments, of course, didn't work last summer when the
U.S. Congress passed legislation compensating Oregon, California, and
washington for shutting down their timber harvest because of the pres-
ence of the Northern Spotted Owl, another specie on the federal endan-
"Liberty County would have received more than $1.6 million over
the next decade in place of funding we would have previously received
in timber sales," said Johnny Eubanks. publisher of the Liberty-
C Eubanks said that Graham, Mack, and Peterson fought for inclu-
sion of Florida in that Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993, but they went
ahead and voted for the bill when their amendments to it were defeated.
"If they had really been for us, they would have voted against the
act as a protest. It passed by a very close vote and could have been de-
feated if they had stuck together against it," Eubanks said.
Liberty County officials are trying to make a comeback in their
economy by diversification from wood products and by an application to
congress for a regional Job Corps Center.
The application stresses the healthy rural environment, the respon-
sibility congress has to help restore the economy it has literally de-
stroyed, and the county's nearness to the urban populations-of Talla-
hassee and Panama City where many at-risk young people live.
Guess what? Their biggest opposition to such a center is: the city of
Tallahassee, which also has applied for a Job Corps Center.
Florida currently has three Job Corps Centers, all located in urban
settings with-of course-many more votes for congressmen than Liber-
It is going to be interesting to see if Graham, Mack, and Peterson
are going to go all out for little hard-hit Liberty County this time? Or
stay safely with the bigger urban vote in the cities, far from the land of

The Sharks completed their
final football game of the season
at the Quincy Rotary Bowl on No-
vember 20; with a defeat over
Pensacola Catholic of 31-3. The
Sharks showed great effort and
enthusiasm as many players got
in the game and had a little fun
while playing ball.
Well, it's out with the old and
in with the new as basketball sea-
son, boys and girls, gets under
way. The Lady Sharks defeated
Chipley 36-34 and Wewa 41-28.
J.V. and Varsity boys basketball
will start Dec. 4, when they travel
to Tallahassee Godby. It's been
an exciting football season,, but
now it's time for some slam dun-
Two highly regarded awards,
the DAR Good Citizen and VFW
Voice of Democracy, were award-
ed to deserving students at the
high school. Brant Bizek, the
Good Citizen Award recipient,
was chosen by the faculty and his
classmates Deann d Redmond,
Tonya Carpenter, and Melissa An-
derson were chosen as the school
winners for the nation's most
widely recognized speech contest,
the VFW Voice of Democracy.
The PRIDE flag honorees are,
also not to be forgotten. The Con-
cert Choir was honored with the
flag for their outstanding perfor-
mance. In honor of Carolyn Rish's
dedication, patience, and excel-
lent guidance, the flag was flown
in her name. The intelligent
S.G.A. officers-Deann Redmond,
Missy Nobles, Joni Peak, and
Kristi Lawrence were honored for
their combined grade point aver-
age of 3.958. Greg Johnson was
honored for his help with the suc-
cessful S.G.A. pie auction. For
Brant Bizek being chosen as the
DAR award -recipient, he had the
flag flown in his honor. The Varsi-
ty football team was honored
once more for their great year.
The flag was also flown for the
many girls and guys who made
the Achieverts Club for the sec-
ond six weeks. Finally who better
to fly the PRIDE ,flag in honor of
than the PRIDE committee for
their hard work?
