MFC Wednesday Over
Scallop Ban Question
x State Committee Threatens To
Close Bay To Recreational Harvest
-A delegation from Port St. Joe was in Tallahassee
Wednesday, as The Star went to press, to defend the
city's and county's position in a plan to close St. Jo-
seph Bay to recreational scalloping for at least a year.
The delegation, headed up by Chamber of Com-
merce executive secretary Tamara Laine, will oppose
the move, suggested by the Marine Fisheries Commis-
sion to prevent what it terms as the continued erosion
of scallops in the bays of Florida.
St.'Joseph Bay has an abundant supply of the popu-
lar shell fish, which is a summer-time target of tourists
and natives alike, who wade the shallows of the Bay or
snorkel in the shallow water flats, searching for the
scallops. The shell fish contain a large muscle of white,
sweet meat, prized as a delicacy to seafood lovers.
The hearing Wednesday was for those opposing the
suggestion of the MFC to shut down the remaining
bays-including St. Joseph's-for a full year to allow re-
covery of the scallops.
The MFC admits there is no current shortage of the
scallops in St. Joseph Bay, but bases its suggestion on
the fact that all other bays in Florida, with the excep-
tion of those along the Big Bend, have lost their scallop
population. It is also suggesting a re-alignment of the
season, once it is opened again and adjustment of the
Pollution in the other bays is cited by some as the
reason for the scallop demise. Another defense is that
scallops are a migratory mollusk, using St. Joseph Bay
as an incubator.
Harvesting of scallops is currently allowed in the
Bay between July 1 to March 1, with a limit of five gal-
-loI s per person: ...
The Star learned about noon yesterday
that the Marine Fisheries Commission
had compromised with the Port-St. Joe
delegation yesterday morning, at a hear-
ing held in Tallahassee. The Commission
had agreed to soften its recommendations
to the Florida Cabinet meeting from its
original stance, but still tightened up on
scallop harvesting in St. Joseph Bay.
According to Chamber of Commerce
executive secretary Tamara Laine, who
called The Star at noon, the MFC agreed
to recommend that taking scallops be
banned south of the Suwannee River and
that the season in St. Joseph Bay be re-
duced from its present length to a tempo-
rary season of July 1 to September 30.

sewer service at very little cost be-,
fore -the citizens of Ward Ridge
Tuesday night, while Commis-
sioner Johnny Linton tossed the

Tharpe wanted the Commis-
sion to "find a way" to install sew-
er service to the east side of Ward
Ridge and. replace much of the

Johnny Linton, however,
countered with the idea that
should the people of Ward Ridge
get sewer collection service they
would have to pay. for at least the
lion's share of the installation. "I
live out there and I tell you the
people who live on the west side
of Niles Road are not going to be
crazy about paying for sewer over
again when they already have the
service. They paid for it once.
They're not going to be happy
about paying for it again and the
people of Port St. Joe aren't going
to want to pay for sewer service
for the people of Ward Ridge."
Linton went on to say that
everyone who now has sewer ser-
vice had to pay for its installa-
Ralph Rish of Preble Rish En-
gineers, gave the Commission
some numbers for a sewer service
for the southern portion of the
city, which'furnish the service to
those not now served. Rish said
the installation would cost an es-
timated $350,000, which would
call for a payment from the pro-
posed customers of some $21.00
a month for a period of 40 years.
Rish pointed out that if the
City could pay at least $150,000
down on the system, the custom-
er liability would be reduced to
an estimated $7.00 per month.

AN AWARDS BANQUET WAS held last Thursday night for
our high school athletes, including the State Champion basket-
ball Sharks, to acknowledge their seasons this year. And the
awards are not over yet. We in Port St. Joe think highly of our
athletes; especially those who win state championships.
It isn't every basketball team that wins the title as being best
of all teams .in the entire state. As the late Coach Marion Craig
used to, say, 'That takes in a lot of territory the other side of
Actually, it takes in all of it ... Including Tallahassee.
That would almost automatically mean the members of that
state championship team would occupy all the spaces on hono-
rary teams which are customarily named following a, season.
Just because there was only one senior on the team is no excuse
for slighting them.
A FEW WEEKS AGO, The Tallahassee Democrat named their
.honorary team and, guess what; there wasn't a single Shark on
the first team of the All Big Bend team selected by the Democrat.
One had to search all the way to the third team of the All Big
Bend selection to find the first Shark. Guess which Shark was.
labeled a member of the All Big Bend Third Team? It was Des
.Baxter, who was named the Most Valuable Player of the Class
Wouldn't one think that the Most Valuable Player of the state
championship finals-a member of the state champion team-
would deserve honors of more than third team in the selection?
A player who has been selected Most Valuable Player of the state
finals should deserve recognition comparable to his accomplish-
ments. He deserves the honors of being on the first team.,
IF YOU WOULD LIKE to .have our opinion, he should be
named first in the selections, on the first team. No doubt about
it. He earned it. His peers gave him that honored position, why
can't the Tallahassee Democrat?
And John Bryant, Jermaine Larry, Mario Larry, Chad Quinn
and Damon Walker all deserve to be selected higher than honor-
able mention, too. They were all dues paying members of that
State Championship team.
How does the Democrat get away with such a snub of such
fine young athletes? Maybe it's because all of them are under-
classmen. They haven't reached that ekalted title of "Senior" as
yet. But that's. no excuse. They earned better recognition than
they received and we,,for one, think the Democrat should have
seen that they received it!
He Deserved It!
MIKE ROYKO HAS long been one of our favorite daily news-
paper columnists, along with Lewis Grizzard. Mike is about as
subtle as a lead pipe, and that's the way we like it. Call a spade
a spade and a joker a joker.
Last week he was more into calling a joker a joker than any-
thing else, when he was writing about Michael Fay. Who is Mi-
chael Fay? He Is a young man, 19 years old, who was temporari-
ly residing in Singapore with his stepfather and mother. Michael
was 'Just being a boy; a mite mischievous; just expressing him-
self' in a sort of obnoxious way. In the United States it would be,
the ofiffifn of those who try to understand why such brats d:,
mean things, an attempt should be made to reason with him.
BUT, IN SINGAPORE the authorities there have the funny
idea that spray painting buildings, throwing eggs at cars, switch-
ing license plates, tearing down traffic signs and other acts of
vandalism is just that-vandalism. They don't ,take 'kindly to
vandalism in Singapore. Actually, they give it: the punishment it
deserves. To them vandalism isn't funny.
'Young Fay was,. convicted of his vandalism by a Singapore
court and given the usual sentence. The usual sentence for
these kinds of things is four months in prison, a $2,000 fine and
six whacks on the bare fanny with a bamboo switch by a martial
arts expert. The final portion of the punishment hurts! Almost as
much as it hurt the building owners to have graffiti spray paint-
ed on their buildings; almost as much as it hurt the automobile
owners to have eggs thrown at their property, etc., etc.
MICHAEL FAY WOULD like to have the flogging portion of
his sentence waived'because of the pain involved. The authori-
ties aren't budging. Michael gets what he deserves and there is
no way. to avoid. Even Intervention by President Clinton has
been to no avail. He gets flogged. In the United States, such.van-
dalism would get him community control at the worst! More
than likely, he wouldn't get much more than a reprimand.
The difference such attitudes in wrong-doing makes is that'
Singapore streets are safe for anybody to walk on at any time,
anyplace. Those ;in the United States are not.

the worst-looking hair cut I'd
' seen in. forty-seven years. He was
bald on one side, shaved slick as
an onion; but on the other half of
his crown, he had hair going eve:-
:rywhere. Part of it covered his
ear, the rest swooped up toward
the front and fell down over both
eyes. As we stood in' line at the
hardware store, he would fre-
quently give his head a.quick jerk
upward to flop his mop skyward
and give himself momentary vi-
sion. I don't even want to talk
about his earring.

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
. 7' .," Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Many accidents occur with older children because the child is
trying to do something beyond his years. The child wants to imitate
his older friends and the parents indulge him because they think it
is cute (.. or useful. Example is a child who is too young being al-
lowed to use a motorized lawn mower.)
Children always want to do adult activities. Many are being al-
lowed to use guns without the necessary instructions in their use,
and without being old enough. responsible enough, 'or skilled
enough to do so.
ATV's are very dangerous vehicles. Children should probably
not be allowed to ride on them with adult operators. They should
certainly not be placed in control of the vehicle. No laws are in effect
for operation of ATV's on private property. Parents must determine
whether or not their children will be exposed to this danger.
Horses, boats, scuba apparatus, and the list' goes on and on.
Children need to receive careful instructions, and supervision.They
need to be restricted to activities that are age appropriate.
Power tools were never intended for use by juveniles. No
amount of help from a child can make up for losing fingers, hands

Three Wishes From Third Grade
It's spring when boys and
girls can wish upon a dandelion.
This is how they do it. They find a
ripe dandelion. Ripe dandelions
have feathery, cottony seeds.
Children make a secret wish.
Then they blow. If they blow away
all of the' flower, their wish will
come true. At least, that's how
the story goes. Here are some of
the wishes the students in Linda
Whitfleld's class made: Monique
Sinnons-"I would wish that no
one would put trash in lakes, riv-
ers, or oceans." Jesse Taunton-"I
would, wish that my children
would have the best life that they
could have and not do drugs."
Aleasha. Hand-"I would wish for
peace all over the world."
by 3rd Grader Nichole Dunkle
The greatest invention was
love, and it was invented by peo-
ple. I love everyone in the whole
world; especially my kin folks.
But I love my baby brother the

people and that would be what I
would wish for. I wonder if that
dream would ever come true?"

'rT. WAU OR qT.TO,-'T.- 'TJTTDQTA&V APRIL 7. 1994
Gov. Lawton rChiles got his health care reform through the Florida
House lat week il exchange for heavy lobbying on the Rosewood com-
pensation bill,' and budget negotiations broke down on school spending
to send the session into almost certain overtime.
The Senate denied reinstatement for Hmrnando School Board Mem-
ber bihne Rowden who was removed by Chiles in 1993 for talking pub-
lic business over the. phone to other board membersin violation of a
section of the Florida Sunshine law that doesn't apply to the senators
who decided h6r fate.
A property rights bill that would compensate owners when the state
takes awvay'the use of their land by agency rule is apparently dead for
this' session after a Senate committee postponed it with no more meet-
ing scheduled this session. -
> Chemical castration for second-time rapists and the death penalty
for a thfrd conviction passed the Senateto, face much tougher opposi-
tion in the more liberal House.
SAconstitutional amendment that lifts unlimited homestead protec-
tion for wealthy debtors in the bankruptcy law that has made Florida a
paradise for deadbeat millionaires passed the House..
Those were some of the highlights of last week's session that was
scheduled to end this Friday, April 8.
ROSEWOOD CLOUT: Black lawmakers showed their clout by
threatening to vote against the health care reform bill and school prayer
if. Democratic leaders didn't actively lobby for the $1.6 million comrpen-
sation bill for survivors of the white rampage against blacks in 1923 in
Levy county in the now abandoned town of Rosewood.
The adamant stand of the black caucus erupted first at a luncheon
with Gov. Lawton Chiles and his staff when Rep. Al Lawson, D-
Tallahassee, a sponsor.of the bill, warned that black lawmakers might
vote with Republicans against the governor's health care reforms.
"It's getting to be mighty upsetting that we've got Democratic mem-
- bears that are threatening to gut the bill in appropriations," said Lawson.
who has announced.he may change his vote for the voluntary prayer-
iri-school bill that is sponsored by Democratic North Florida Legislation
Rep. Randy Mackey, Lake City, and Sen. Charles Williams, Tallahas-
Although Chiles angrily replied he didn't like someone putting a
.gun in his ear on something he favored before they asked, the tough
stance of the 11 members of the black caucus at the luncheon got imi-
mediate action. Chiles' staff and Democratic leaders got on the phone to
successfully push Rosewood through a stalled appropriations commit-
tee to the floor of the House.
House Rules Chairman Peter Wallace, D-St. Petersburg, slipped be-
hind guarded doors with black caucus members during the debate on
: health care reform, ignoring a 1992 constitutional amendment passed
by voters to extend the open meetings law to legislators and House
rules that say meetings cannot be conducted in the members' lounge or
any location that is closed to the public.
They came back in 15 minutes and announced that an appropria-
tions committee meeting to consider Rosewood was postponed until the
next day due to the lateness of the hour. Black lawmakers, according to
second hand reports, wanted to take up the compensation bill at about
2 a.m., instead of waiting until the next day.
House Speaker Bo. Johnson., D-Chlpley, apologized t6 reporters for
the secret session. He said his staffdisobeyed his instructions to let re-
porters into the meeting.
The health reform plan that passed the House and faces tougher
opposition in the Senate. would allow 800,000 uninsured Floridians to
buy low-cost care coverage. Republican amendments, voted down in the
House, will have a better chance in the Senate, which is split 20-20 In
party affiliations. .
The package could extend the session if Gov. Chiles sends back the
bill after it passes the Senate and the conference committee but the
mdin reas6tfth'e session will be extended is budget snags over funding
schools. Senate President Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, told senators to ex-
pect to be called back.
PROPERTY RIGHTS: An untimely death for a bill that would have
allowed private landowners to seek payment through a mediator when
government restrictions limit use of the property came about 2 a.m. last
week. Senate Community Affairs Chairman Daryle Jones announced its
withdrawal by sponsor William G. Myers, R-Hope Sound, who said it
wasn't getting a fair hearing and will be on the ballot as a constitutional
amendment in November.
GLADES CLEANUP: A House committee passed a bill providing an:
11-year program costing $465 million to create storm water treatment
systems to send cleaner water into the Everglades. Sugar and vegetable
growers would pay about half the cost with South Florida taxpayers and
the state picking up the rest. Environmentalists claim the bill shows
Gov. Lawton Chiles and legislators are favoring the sugar industry
which they cite as the principal polluter of the Everglades and suggest a
penny-a-pound tax be placed on the sugar sales. Legislative leaders and
the. Department of Environmental Regulation say the plan is the best
and fairest way to cut pollution.
FISHING FEES: Saltwater anglers would pay $7.50 a year more for
a $12 a year fishing license under a bill passed by a House committee,
but only $3 more under a bill passed in a Senate panel. Both bills are
headed to the floor for action before the session ends. The proposals are
to compensate the commercial fishing industry If it is put out of busl-
ness by the passage of a constitutional amendment in November ban-
ning net fishing along Florida's coast. It isn't likely the legislature will-
pass a ban on net fishing.
DEAD AGAIN: The death knell for. this session has sounded for the
idea that always keeps coming back to allow legal advertising of public
notices in free-distribution advertising shoppers that have no news or
editorial content. A Senate committee sent the bill back for another year
of study and a House committee had it withdrawn after an unfavorable
vote on it.
ALMOST DEAD: Don't bet on a bill to regulate casinos If they are,
voted in via a constitutional amendment in November. Although Gov.
Lawton Chiles favors it, it would be the first time in history the legisla-
ture has attempted to regulate something that doesn't exist yet. Hear-
ngs on the bill have been delayed and 75 amendments have been pro-
posed. Sen. President Pat Thomas says its passage is doubtful. House
Speaker Bo Johnson says "a long ways to go."
PAY-RAISE: Thanks to a recovering, economy that is producing
more state revenues without a tax hike, state workers can expect a 4
percent pay-raise effective Nov. 1, according to Senate and House nego-
BUDGET REFORM: Performance budgeting-an idea conservative
legislators in both parties and Gov. Lawton Chiles favor-seems on the
back burner for this session. A Senate committee has voted down some
key elements of the bill and refused to approve a time-table schedule for
phasing in immediately and now say they'd rather wait until next year
instead of batting the idea back and forth in the closing days of the ses-
The biggest block is that the Senate would set up a powerful legisla-
tive committee to oversee the new budgeting process. The House would
set up a powerful joint legislative committee to oversee the new budget-
ing process. The House would leave those duties to the Auditor General.
The idea calls for funding programs each year after studying their re-
sults, rather than just automatically keeping them in the budget just
because they have been funded in the past.
Then there was the secret meeting behind guarded doors of about
19 House members, including Rules Chairman Peter Wallace, D-St. Pe-
tersburg, and many black lawmakers, including Rep. Miquel DeGrandy,
R-Miami, a sponsor of the Rosewood bill.
They met in.a lounge connected to the office of Speaker Bo John-
son, D-Chipley, during a break in debate on the controversial health
care reform bill that black caucus .leaders said they wouldn't support
against Republican opposition unless Democrat leaders and Gov. Chiles
actively lobbied for the Rosewood compensation bill.
Reporters trying to get into the private meeting-which was illegal
under the sunshine law and House rules-were told the members were
.not discussing legislation (yeah) and that the constitution lets the
House set their own rules.
Speaker Johnson apologized to reporters later and said his staff dis-
obeyed his instructions to let reporters into the meeting.

The Florida Marine Patrol re-
ports last Saturday, March 6th at
9:30 a.m., an arrest was made in
Gulf county for unlawful posses-,
sion of a marine turtle. While re-
turning from scalloping, the com-.
mercial trawler, named "High
Liner", was boarded for Inspec-
tion in the Gulf County Canal.
The Florida Marine Patrol officer
observed an Atlantic loggerhead
turtle lying on its back on the
deck of the vessel. The officer
documented the illegal act and re-
leased the 170 pound turtle
which swam away freely towards
the Gulf of Mexico.
The captain of the 69' steel-'
hulled vessel. Lance R. Kitson,
age 33, of Barnegat Light. New
Jersey, was arrested and booked
in the Gulf County Jail. State
charges for unlawful possession
of marine turtles are pending.
Marine turtles have been list-
ed as either threatened or endan-
gered and come under specific
protection in recent years with
strict and mandatory penalties
set by the Florida Legislature. A
conviction for unlawful posses-
sion of loggerhead turtle, a
threatened species, carries a
mandatory penalty of from
$100.00 to $500.00 fine and up
to 60 days in jail. Further de-
fined in Florida Law, mairlhe tur-
fties also .demand ,an additional
$100.060 special penalty.
