New Proposal Utilizes a Portion of Raffield Complex
on the Banks of Gulf County Canal as Dry Storage
The cards have been shuffled a bit and
plans rewritten, but perseverance has kept Port
St. Joe's Marina project alive and well.
; In a special called Port St. Joe City
Commission meeting Tuesday at noon, the
board gave their stamp of approval to apply for
$675,000 of Economic Development Admini-
stration grant money to build a city marina on
3.5 acres of Raffield Fisheries' property adja-
cent to the Intracoastal Waterway.
The marina was originally slated to be con-
structed south of the city pier at the end of Fifth
Street, but fears that environmental problems
would create a permitting nightmare caused
the EDA to deny the city's $900,000 grant'
This led the marina committee, Chamber of
Commerce Director Tamara Laine, and Preble
& Rish engineer Bill Kennedy to came up with
an alternate permlttable plan and site to be
submitted to EDA by Friday, September 1.
While searching for an ,alternative, Gene
Raffield of Raffield's Fisheries, offered a propos-
al to the committee that could possibly satisfy
permitting and environmental problems, as
well as counter some portion of the economic
impact the net Ban Constitutional Amendment
is having on the commercial fishing giant.
Raffield's plan includes donating 3.5 acres
of property to the City. Included in the proper-
ty would be a 280' x 85' metal building previ-
ously used by Raffield's as a boat building
plant. It could easily be converted to a dry stor-
age building housing as many as 50 boats. The
property also has two smaller buildings on it
that could be put to use in the marina concept
as a ship's store or some other similar applica-
tion. A mechanical boat lift, capable., of dry
docking larger boats, ,is also included on the
property Raffield is offering.

counties in the state.
The coalition was instrumental, in securing funds to
help small counties cross all the proper hurdles to close
landfill sites that have been filled to capacity or fail to meet
the stringent environmental guidelines mandated by the
state of Florida.
Gulf County has two landfills, Buckhorn and the Port
St. Joe site, that they have closed but are still required to
monitor at considerable expense to the county.
Yeager said Gulf County stands to benefit somewhere
in the neighborhood of $200,000 through the lobbying ef-
forts of the coalition to reimburse past expenses and fund
current and future costs to close the sites.
He also noted the coalition decided to include in their
membership counties with populations of 150,000 or less,

ONE OF THE MOST dramatic pictures we have taken in a
long time was the photo session last week with the buying of the
nets from the commercial fishermen. It was a traumatic experi-
ence, seeing all those nets being loaded up and all those fisher-
men being parted from a tool they had used for so long.
The state of Florida paid the fishermen for the nets, but only
a few cents on the dollar of worth. The nets represented a life-
time purchase and a lifetime of mending, repairing, caring for,
and preserving the nets in top notch condition, to make sure the
fish didn't escape once they were caught.
WITNESSING THE NETS being loaded, and the effect it was
having on the fishermen reminded us of the day The Star's Lino- w
type machine was busted up for scrap iron. The machine was f'
still an operating marvel of cams, gears, levers and umpteen w
parts. It hardly ever broke down, it was so sturdily built and ac- ni
curately machined, but it was no longer used by the printing n
trade and thus was useless. It still had many years of useful ser- tr
vice left in the machine, but no demand for the service it was c]
still capable of performing. fc
We had to leave the premises while the machine was being d
hammered into a thousand pieces of useless scrap iron. What
one day had been a proud, dependable typesetting machine was
THE FISHERMEN FELT THE same way toward their nets |
which were being loaded on a low-boy trailer to be carted off to
the scrap heap. Perfectly good and serviceable nets of no use to
We know there were thoughts flitting through the minds of P
those fishermen, like, "Millions of people starving in the world
and those nets would provide food for many of them." But, no |
more. So a few people can play at catching fish for fun, a host of
people must go hungry ., possibly even the children of some of
the men who owned the nets.
IT WAS SAD, SEEING the nets being reduced to so much
garbage. We wonder if the state of Florida will suffer for the
shameless act of denying the producers of food the means to
feed mankind, just so they will have more animals to toy with
and toss in the garbage after they get through showing them off?
No Room In the Inn
SHERIFF FRANK McKEITHEN made it plain last week, that
he didn't intend to quit arresting law-breakers, even if he was
out of jail space to put them in. The remarks he made, when his
attention was called to the fact that the jail had exceeded the de-
sign occupancy, caused us to surmise that criminals just might
have to sleep on the floor, rolled up in a blanket, like we used to
do as a child. But he wasn't going to hesitate making an arrest.
because he didn't have an open bunk on which to place them.
We know it isn't in keeping with the attitude of those officials
who would go all out to coddle prisoners and make them comfy |
while they are in jail, but we are more concerned over how un-
comfortable they have made many people in Gulf County with
their criminal activity. Somehow, 4 takes precedence with us.
GULF COUNTY HAS sufficient Jail space. What it apparently
doesn't have is enough people behaving themselves so they don't
have to be locked up in that buff brick building behind the ,
What the Sheriff seems to be saying is, 'You do the crime;
you do the time!" regardless of whether or not there is an empty
bunk for you while you are doing that time.
Or, better still, '"You made your own bed; now lie in it!" ,
WE SUPPORT THE Sheriffs attitude. We might feel differ- |
ently, too, if we were in jail. But, we are going to give the matter |
our top attention and do our best to so deport ourselves so as
not to get sent there. ,
We would, frankly, hate to get sent to jail even if we knew
each and every prisoner had a private room, a beauty-rest mat-
tress, with air-conditioning and the latest books to read or mo-
vies to watch. Going to jail just isn't very high on our list of
things we wish to do.
THE DOC SEES to it that prisoners aren't miss-treated in
any manner. We have to presume that this same set of prisoner
guidelines holds true in Gulf County's jail. So, there's no need to
be apprehensive about prisoners being treated harshly. Sheriff
McKeithen has let it be known they will not be coddled or given
special treatment either.

think of those Cunningham boys
that lived out on the edge of Jar-

year we'd lose a good coon dog in
there. General George Patton was
running a big one when they got
so deep down in the swamp they
went plumb out of hearing. GG,
who was -,about Dad's all-time fa-
vorite, never came back. We
searched those woods for two
weeks for that high bred Treeing
Walker. Not a trace!
Rumor around was Arlo Cun-
ningham or his brother, Hecky,
weren't above picking up a good
dog and shipping it off right quick
to some of those rich hunters up
by Lexington, Kentucky. Prentiss
Ray Doyle put it in the vernacular
of the day standing out on our
front porch. "Mr. Colbert, that
dog has done got stole."
I have agreed with Prentiss
Ray all these years. I remember
my Dad confronting Mr. Cunning-
ham about the possibility of Arlo

dogs. Mr. Cunningham had a the-
ory that. none of us believed.
"Lonnie, there's some kind of big
animal in that swamp that's get-

Well, I never say any signs.

I DIDN'T FEEL old until last
An event 'happened to me
suddenly, which I didn't expect. It
came in about one second. That's
all it took.
Last Friday I picked up a
Chiefland Citizen to scan through
it and see what one of "my boys"
was doing with his newspaper.
About 30 years ago one of my
trainees, Walter, Wilson, came
back from Korea after a stint in
the Air Force, and resumed his
place in the newspaper world. He
went to work with the Gilchrist
County Journal and had J. Min
Ayers as his tutor after getting
the basics here at The Star, when
he was still a student in high
school and lived with his parents
at Kenny's Mill, a giant saw mill
which was previously in the loca-
tion of the Wastewater Treatment
There were about 500 fami-
lies lived out there-more during
the WWII days when the mill was
cutting lumber for the war effort

started to grow. Before long Wal-
ter was up to his eyeballs in debt,
just to keep up with the tirites. I
guess that's why I empathized
with him so much. Neither of us
had a college education; I don't
think he even got his high school
diploma until he was in the Air
Force. Kenny's Mill ran out of saw
timber to cut, and -shut down.
The Wilsons moved back to Tren-
ton, the old home place.
AGAIN, LIKE' ME, Walter
learned newspapering the hard
way; by OJT, knowing that if he
failed to learn it, or failed to work
18 hours a day, he would go
broke. Like me, he had nothing to
start with and he had a family to
There's impetus in that com-
debt until he gradually began to
get his head above water. He built
the newspaper a new building,
bought a complete different set of
machinery to produce his paper
with, because printing methods
suddenly changed about that
time. Nobody told either of us
that Linotypes. flatbed presses,
back-breaking labor and hot met-
al type were not going to be with
us forever. They had been for' over
100 years; suddenly they
changed and we had to change
with the times.
WALTER WAS IN a position
with a lot of newspapers which
had to change. He was centrally
located so he borrowed and spent
about a quarter million for a
press to print those newspapers
with. He prospered.
But suddenly last Friday, I
picked up his newspaper and was
scanning the pages when
I couldn't believe it!
It seemed like just a year or
two ago he came into the shop
here and hung around until I put
him to work. Of course he would
do things like hide a galley-full of
space material I had given him to
put up, on occasion, to keep from
putting it up. We kept finding gal-
leys of space material tucked here
and there around the building as
we would make changes.
Walter was smart! He could
figure out almost anything, or
talk with knowledge about most
anything. He kept me on my toes.
Then came the news of his
death. Suddenly, I felt old. Here
was my first trainee; one of my
kids, taken by death.
-Walter died of cancer. af-
ter he got his newspaper and its
changes, finally paid for and was
able to take it easy every once in

River Threatens Road
According to Gulf County Chief
Administrator Don Butler, the county began
work Monday to construct a 130 foot bulk head
along the edge of the Chipola River Cut-off and
Cut-off Drive (pictured above) in efforts to keep
the river's waters from further eroding the
county's road right of way.
Butler said the river had eaten away
approximately 20 foot of land over the past five
. years and had reached the edge of the county
road right of way.
The 130' bulk head will be built by a-pri-
ivate contractor at a cost of $21,000, after
which the county will back fill the river's bank
with rip-rap in an attempt to stop the erosion

Boron is required to stimu-
late a process called meristem dif-
ferentiation. At the tip of a plant,
cells multiply as generalized: tis-

unable to turn this tissue into
leaves, roots, and so on. That is,
without boron, the meristem re-
Zinc' controls a plant's ability
to make a material called indolea-
cetic acid, which influences plant
growth and root development.
Plants use molybdenum in
making protein-a vital part of
every living cell-plant or animal.
Manganese and Iron serve a
couple of Important functions.
First. plants need them to make
chlorophyll, which is essential for
photosynthesis-the process by
which plants produce sugars and
starch from carbon, oxygen, and
hydrogen. Also. manganese and
Iron-along with copper-act as
catalysts, or plant enzyme activa-
tors. A plant may not make any-
thing out of these elements, but
they have to be present for cer-
tain life process to go on.
Finally, we'll consider cal-
cium and sulfur, which are In-
cluded in a group of plant nutri-
ents called secondary elements.
Plants use calcium In building
new cells. This element is an es-
sential part of the cell wall struc-
ture. A compound made with cal-
cium also helps plants maintain
the right acid level Inside its cells.

When plants don't get the mi-

Always Get Motor Vehicle
Repair Estimates in Writing
By: Bob Crawford
Commissioner Of Agriculture
Cars: and trucks last longer
and give better performance if
cared for properly. Repairs and
maintenance will prove benefl--
cial-but only if performed by a
reputable, qualified mechanic.
Most repair shops in Florida
are required by the Motor Vehicle
Repair Act to register annually
with the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es. All print ads or listings relat-
ing to vehicle repair must include
the shop's registration number.
Shops performing only minor re-
pair work-such as oil changes
and lubrication, or replacement
of belts, lamps. etc.-are exempt
from the registration require-"

Include in the sign, a, state-
ment advising consumers: they
are entitled to the return or in-
spection of replaced parts, if re-
quested at the time the service or-
der is placed.
Consumers also have legal
rights regarding repair estimates.
If the repair work will cost more
'than ::$50, the shop must give a
customer the option of:.
1) Requesting a written esti-
2) Being notified by the shop
if the repair exceeds an amount
specified by the customer.
3) Not requiring a-written es-
Shops cannot force consu -
mers to waive their rights to an
estimate. Consumers should al-
ways ask for a written"estimate
and advise the shop not to make
repairs that will cost more with-
out specific authorization.
Though not required on the writ-
ten estimate, consumers should
ask that it clearly state whether
the prices quoted are for new.
used or remanufactured parts.
That Information is required on
the final invoice.
The repairs can be canceled if
the cost exceeds the estimate,
and the repair shop must reas-
semble the vehicle, unless it Is
unsafe to drive. The consumer
Smay waive reassembly. The shop
may charge for teardown and re-
assembly-but only if the consu-
mer, was given notice of that
charge on the estimate.
The Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services can
seek an Injunction against shops
that violate the Motor Vehicle Re-
pair Act and impose penalties of
up to $1.000 per violation.

Three programs in particular
stand out as another big Labor

wildlife officers are now in their
second year of handing out cour-
tesy life jackets.
A new law implemented earll-
er this year requires a wearable
personal flotation device for eve-
ryone on board a boat. If a boat is
checked and does not have the
proper number of PFDs on board.
the operator will be given a cita-
tion-but also courtesy PFDs to
use for the rest of the day.

C GFC is interested in safety, not
just handing out tickets," said
Capt. Don Holway of the GFC's
South Region. "The idea Is to give
the boater a citation, but allow
him to slay out on the water and
.enjoy the rest of the day."
Holway says he first came up
with the courtesy PFD idea about.
15 years ago while working as a
wildlife officer in the Everglades
Region. During a routine check, a
boater found an extra child's PFD
and told Capt. Holway to "give It
to someone who needs it." Capt.
Holway kept that PFD aboard his
boat and loaned it to boaters who
were in violation of the law.

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
Facial pain may be the re-
sult of many factors, some of
them dental. Lately, attention
has been focused on prob-
lems surrounding the tempor-
omandibular joint (TMJ) which
controls movement of the jaw.
Problems in the TMJ area
can affect anyone, but they
are more common in women.
There may be pain in front of
the ear, in the throat, or over
the jaw or temple area. Chew-

difficult or impossible.
Many times the problem is
not in the joint itself, but in the

Quarterback Ryan Yeager com-
pleted four consecutive passes,

Wewahitchka's Gators start their new football
season Friday, expected to take up where they left
off last year: playing some fine football and a definite
threat to win their District championship and be a
serious contender in state-wide 2A football.
The Gators are bringing an impressive line-up to
the gridiron again this year, after their sparkling 8-3
campaign last year. The Gators play five of its first
six games at home and then take to the road for the
better part of the second half of the season.
Ranked number six state-wide., in the pre-
season polls for 2A teams by the Florida High School
Association, the Gators kick off their season at home
in Gator Stadium against- the 3A number 10 ranked

possession ofl the Gulf County Trophy, captured last
year by the iators. Game time will be 7:0,0 p.m.,
The Gators appear ready to make their assault
on the state play-offs, returning to .the grid wars,
bringing six offensive and nine defensive starters
from last year's highly successful squad as a formid-
able nucleus to build upon. The team's top concern
seems to be replacing quarterback Will Sumner, a
1,000 yard passer, from last year's squad, and their

Defensively, the Gators will be led by senior line-
backers Adam Ake, David Hysmith and junior defen-

on last year's edition of the Gators. Ake led the team

sides of the ball.

Leadership Council Discusses Several
Platform Planks to Tack Up for '96
NEWS NOT BAD IF YOU READ BETWEEN LINES
Florida members of the .Democratic; Leadership Council meeting in
Orlando discussed private property rights. charter schools, immigration,
*welfare reform, deregulation, and how to end affirmative action.
Yep, that's the Democratic Leadership Council not the Republican
Contract with America. Read between the lines, of course. and y6ouwill
realize the discussion of those popular conservative subjects by about
150 top Democrats is a search for the center in the 1966 elections. In fact,
the council was formed in the 1980s to bring the National Democratic
Party back to the mainstream. It didn't then and it probably won't now.
but it's good news for conservatives of all parties. ,
Gov.. Lawton Chiles, termed a moderate by the liberal news media,
said the 1980s Democratic Party with a platform stuffed'with two of
everything for every group was a-Noah's Ark for special interests.
"We need strong ideas to counter Republican proposals. t6 win." said
Chiles. "We're tired~of having to run away from the Democratic Party."
Headlines last week heralded the possibility of a third party of
Independent voters because the "motor voter" law requiring states to use
driver license and welfare offices to register voters increased
Independents from 8 to 9.5 percent of Florida's 7.4 million.
But read between the lines and you'll find that the [ idea the
Democratic-controlled Congress had to swell Democratic voting ranks
with young people and welfare recipients didn't jell in Florida. The new
voters about 800,000 since January when the law became effective -
caused the Democratic figures to actually drop from 49 to 47' percent of
the total. 1 ;.,. '
Apparently, driver license and welfare offices aren't the, places to,
recruit more Democratic faithful, even though those folk may reap more
government benefits than they pay in taxes. Maybe it's because federal
overspending is creating a massive debt that future generations must pay
and'the younger people know it. ;II
Democrats still fare better on the rolls in Florida, leading Republicans
by a 6 percent margin, but it's a far cry from the overwhelming majorities
it had in the past .
The news media, of course, is frothing at the mouth for a third party
and a recent CNN/USA Today poll shows nationwide voters are split even-
ly between Democrats, Republicans and Independents, a big difference
from the pre-Reagan days when Democrats held a large majority.
The big disadvantage to the average Arnerican voter, however, is that
a three-party system could wind up regularly with a president getting into
office without a majority of the votes. It happened last time out when Bill
Clinton won with only 43 percent.
Without a system requiring a clear majority to win, the people's wish-
es are going to be manipulated by the professional bureaucrat and politi-
cian much like the way America's jury system is now manipulated by
lawyers and money.
Reforms could help, of'course, and our system of government is capa-
ble of handling them.
A national runoff election between the two highest candidates would
do it but would cost too much. The best way would be something called
"majority preference voting." Voters rank their 'candidates from first
choice to last instead of choosing just one. If no one wins a majority, bal-
lots cast for the last place candidate are distributed to those voters' sec-
ond choices. This continues until one candidate has a majority or only
It's an instant runoff and would work, but don't hold your breath.
Politicians don't like it
Don't hold your breath either for reforms in the criminal justice sys-
tem, like a "not proven" Jury verdict .Scotlaid ,Ja o g.wiith the "guilty"
or "not guilty" verdicts. .. ..,. ...c,1. i.-,': .... ... ,.., .. ,.
Or the pracuce In England and most o'fTurope of allowing only a
judge to dismiss jurors on the panel for dause with no preemptive chal-
by Jack Harper
lenges allowed prosecution or defense lawyers out to stack the jury in
their client's favor.
Or finally non-unanimous verdicts for juries in felony cases in some-
thing called super-majority verdicts (10 of 12), as allowed in Oregon,
England, and Australia. You get fewer hung juries and more public con-
fidence in something intangible called "justice" which is sadly lacking
Here's the Capitol News Report
PETE"S SPEECH DIDN'T GO OVER WELL
U.S. Rep. Pete Peterson, D-Marianna, in an address before a
Tallahassee small business association, predicted the country would get
welfare reform from Congress this year and a balanced budget with a lot
of pain in it in somewhat more than seven years, but he personally want-
ed to see only zero tax cuts for businesses.
"The trick is to balance the budget, but keep consumer confidence
so the economy can grow," Peterson said while pointing out the
Republican Contract with Americafor a balanced budget in 7 years does
not allow for one single blip of a recession.
His speech didn't go over big with association members, especially
when he said the business community did not need tax cuts.
"It's obvious you're out to be part of the big-spending Democratic
leadership, but your votes are killing us," said Jim Cherry of Cherry
Cherry ticked off Peterson votes in Congress against environmental
protection cutbacks, revision of the clean water act, and welfare overhaul.
He was joined in his questions by other members including former
Tallahassee Mayor Betty Harley-Barry now radio talk-show host. "I don't
expect everybody will agree with me, but I have more than 500,000 other
people in my district to think about too," Peterson said.
BROGAN'S ETHICS CHALLENGED BY TEACHER UNION
A statewide teacher's union has filed an ethics complaint against
Education Commissioner Frank Brogan for funneling $470,000 tax dol-
lars to school superintendents for lobbying and training programs that
include pay bonuses for them.
Brogan countered that former Education Commissioner Betty CAstor
and Gov. Lawton Chiles appointee Doug Jamerson did the same thing
and that taxpayer dollars also help finance teacher dues to the union.

Back To Normandy
Y After Some 50 Years
It's been 50 years since Gan-
non Buzzett and his brother Rex
first went to France. Rex got to go
along on the Normandy invasion.
Gannon went to the Conti-
nent a few months later and saw
the countryside for the 11
months it took to defeat Hitler's
armies, then he came home.
A few weeks ago, Gannon re-
visited France and all those "sce-
nic" spots he had been to before,
for the first time in 50 years.
He even went to "the military
cemetery in Normandy and found.
his brother's 'grave and took a-
picture of it. '
"I was in the :Big: War; even
trained for the invasion in Opera-
tion "Overrord", but I never real-
ized then what a gigantic opera-
'tion it was at the time. When I'
went back a "few,. weeks ago, It
learned what a tremendous effort
:was expended on that day." Buz-
Izett told..the Kiwariis Club recent-
'The Allies had amassed an
armada of 5,000 ships to trans-
port 178.000 men and the equip-
ment they would need across the
English Channel to. storm the
beaches of France, all in a single
day." he said. .. ..
Buzzett said he was awed ,by
the enormity' of ,,,,h operation
which spelled the beginning of
the end for Hitler.
The speaker gave some statis-
tics, such as 10,000 casualties
the first day of the invasion; 171
fighter squadrons participating;
2,000 bombers; 4,000 landing
'The beaches and shallows
were all heavily mined, obstacles
built in the water to prevent the
landing craft from approaching
the beaches; a beach which was
heavily mined and artillery and
machine guns all dug in on the
cliffs pointed at the beach and
water's edge. It was get to the
base of the cliff or get killed on
the beachl" he said.
Buzzett said one can't ima-
gine how :impossible' the 'Allies'
Stask was unless he were to see it
first hand for himself. 'Those men
,did the., impossible that day and
they did the impossible when
they defeated Hitler in just 11
months of concentrated fighting,"
Buzzett said the cemeteries of
America's dead have all been kept
immaculate through the years.
"The authorities know who they
have buried in any given burial
plot over there. I was able to find
my brother's grave without any
trouble." he said.

Rotary Hears Annual
Coach Priest Says Team Experienced
and Aiming for the State Play-offs
Head football coach Fred
Priest and Shark "100" Club pres-
ident, Ralph Roberson kicked off
the football season for the Rotary
Club last Thursday, by giving the
club a first-of-the-season outlook
on what the community could ex-
pect from their football program
Roberson started by giving a
pitch for the Shark "100" Club,
and the part it plays in all high
-school athletic programs. Rober-
son urged all who supported high
school athletics to join the club.
"It's made up of people who have
donated $100.00 to the athletic
program at the beginning-of each
school year," Roberson said.
Coach Priest echoed Rober-
son's words by testifying to the
fact that the organization has
played-an important part in the
school's athletic programs over
the yeais. "They help all 12 ath-
letic programs which the school
sponsors," Priest said.
FOOTBALL FOR 1995
'As for the current football
team and program this season,
Coach Priest said,- "'The number
of athletes on the varsity squad
this year isn't as laige as it has
been-21 men-but it is our first
strictly Junior and senior team
and it is made up of seasoned
veterans from last year's 7-3
squad." he said.
'We're not' great in size, but
we are great in experience and
quickness. We have 10 seasoned
defensive and nine offensive
players returning from last year's,
squad. We expect to make a run
at' the state championship," the,
'coach told his audience.
Priest promised a different
style of playing this year. "Our
method of, moving, the 'football
this year should be pleasing and
entertaining to the "crowds who
come to see us play. Our speed
and our skills allow us to be a dif-
Sferent team' this year. We'll be
passing and moving the ball in
many ways which will be c-rowd
Priest said the Sharks gradu-
ated only three seniors from last
year's squad. "We'll be experi-
e, iced and quick and exciting to
watch." he promised.
As usual, Priest', said the
Sharks are having problems get-
ting someone to play them on the!

py and glad to be back at school.
A few things were different look-

that our school is sporting now
and the new sign in the front of

our school and the children love
it. There are' other areas where we
have made some changes-some
of the rooms received new blinds

Student Enrollment Boom Being Experienced In Nation's High Schools
Principals in high schools
across the country are beginning to
think about where to put the extra
seats and find the quality teachers
that will be needed for the coming
wave of students.
According to Education Depart-
ment projections, the children and
grandchildren of baby boomers will
help drive enrollment In the nation's
schools and colleges to record levels
by the end of the century. And not
only are mor students going to
school, more ae staying In school.
The influx of students will
create a pressing need for extra help
in the basics and core academics,
funds to keep schools safe and drug-
free, and greater financial aid for col-
lege-at a time when Congress is ,'
proposing to cut federal support for
education by $36 billion over the
next seven years.
As soon as this coming school-
year (1995-96), the number of stu-
dents in elementary and secondary
'schools may equal or surpass the
baby-boom generation's 1971 peak
of 51 million students. The forecast
is for 53 million students in 1997,
55 million by 2002. And college en-
rollment is projected to jump more
than 1.3 million students over the
next seven years.
At a recent White House briefing
with President Clinton, members of
Congress, and representatives of ed-
ucation groups, U. S. Secretary of
Education Richard W. Riley said he
fears the nation will be ill-prepared
for this enrollment growth, especially
If Congress Is successful In cutting
support for elementary and secon-
dary education by 19 percent and
reducing financial assistance for de-
serving students to attend college.

America's children and our nation's
future,"' Riley said. have to ques-
