Board Applies For Special Definition
Would Create 3-Square-Mile "Enterprise Zone" In Port St. Joe Vicinity
The.Port St. Joe City Com-
mission tackled two issues that
have the potential to have a ma-
jor impact on city residents dur-
ing their regular meeting Tuesday
evening. They passed a resolution
to support Gulf County's applica-
tion for a three-square mile por-
tion of the city and Highland View
to be mandated as an Enterprise
Zone and, following the county's
lead, moved to advertise for the
adoption of a tobacco ordinance
prohibiting the use and posses-
sion of the products by minors
within the city.
McKeithen First To
Announce This Year
ARCTIC WINDS TOOK the warmth out of the Florida sun-
shine this past weekend, turning a normal paradise into a sheet
For thtiVee days, Gulf County was held in an icy grip" vhile
temperatures danced around in the mid-teens, forcing people to
bundle up and take precautions to prevent damage from freezing
pipes and nipped toes. The hard freeze hung on for all three
days with the lowest temperature, unofficially, recorded at the
Wastewater Treatment Plant at a cold 16 degrees on both Mon-
day and Tuesday mornings. Monday, the coldest day of the arc-
tic blast, temperatures never rose above 38 degrees all day long.
ADEQUATE WARNING of the approaching hard freeze pre-
vented much severe damage in the Port St. Joe area. Tender
plants left outside and uncovered froze as expected. A few people
left water hoses running to take advantage of the unusual sights
brought about by this freak weather Ifor Floridal and the many
ice formations which would result.
It was the coldest weather reported in Gulf County since
1989, when the temperature got "down and dirty" around the
Christmas holidays, bursting scores of water pipes throughout
the county and causing much discomfort when the cold weather
persisted for several days.
Some of the ice formations resulting from the two day
visit of freezing weather are shown here. The top photo is
the results of Postmaster Dennis Geoghagan letting a sprink-
ler run over his front yard on Forest Park Ave., and the bot-
tom photo shows what happened to a native Florida palm
Stree.in Stan Siprell's yard on Long Avenue.
Gulf County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen became the first Gulf
County candidate to announce
for election this year, as he told
his intentions to seek election to
the top law enforcement post in
the county Tuesday.'
McKelthen was appointed to
his post February of last year by
Governor Lawton Chiles to fill the
unexpired term of ousted Sheriff
Al Harrison. Since that time he
has pui-chased a home at St. Joe
SBeach and become a resident of
Gulf County. McKeithen was on
the Bay County Sheriffs force at
the time of his appointment.
Below is his announcement
of his intention to seek the office
for a full four-year term.
"February 8 will be exactly
one year that I have been Sheriff
of Gulf County. I was appointed to
this position for one reason and
one reason only-to enforce the
laws of the state of Florida as fair-
ly and efficiently as possible. I
have done this. I have devoted
myself to this position and to the
people of-Gulf County to make
this a proud and safe commimity
in which to live and raise their
families." McKeithen said.
"I have heard some people
saying that I have not been out in
the community meeting the peo-
pie, knocking on their doors, and
shaking their hands. Well, I have
been out and I have met people
and I have knocked on doors. I
have even knocked some of them
down. I have also shaken a lot of
hands and other portions of their
(See McKEITHEN on Page 3)
STo compensate communities
adversely affected by the "Net
Fishing Ban" which went into ef-
fect in July of 1995, the state is
establishing eight new Enterprise
Zones. The areas to be considered
must not exceed more than three
square miles with a poverty level
for the residents in the area at
20% of the population.
Only communities with a
population of 7,500 or less or
counties with a. population of
20,000 or less can apply for En-
terprise Zone designation.
If awarded the designation,
the state will offer incentives to
businesses and industries within
the zone, to expand or locate,
there. The biggest incentive would
be in the form of tax credits and
exemptions on everything from
business equipment purchased to
corporate and property taxes.
The area being submitted to
the state for consideration
stretches from and Includes High-
land View eastward including
portions of Port St. Joe up to Six-
The Gulf County Commission
will be the governing body mak-
ing the application along with the
assistance of the Apalachee Re-
gional Planning Council. Applica-
tions must be submitted to the
state before May 15.
The City Commissioners
unanimously voted to advertise
for the adoption of an ordinance
prohibiting the use and posses-
sion of tobacco products by mi-
nors within the city limits.
The vote united the city and
the county boards (Gulf County is
in the final stages of adopting the
tobacco ordinance on a county
level) In their efforts to put some
teeth into a state law prohibiting
the sale of tobacco products to
minors, but not the use or pos-
Violation of the ordinance
could result in a fine of up to
$100.00, up to 50 hours of com-
munity service, or both a fine and
community service hours for a
first offense. An adult (18 or olI-
er) who violates the ordinance is
punishable by up to a $500.00
fine, 100 hours of community ser-
vice, or by both fine and commu-
nity service hours.
A second conviction of the or-
dinance by an individual shall re-
sult in at least double the penalty
for the first conviction but no
more than the maximum penalty
spelled out in the ordinance.
During discussion of the ordi-
nance Mayor Frank Pate asked
Police Chief Bucky Richter to con-
tact the local schools and set up
some programs to educate stu-
dents on the dangers of using to-
bacco products and the punish-
ments set forth by the proposed:
ordinance.' .' '
Commissioner Johnny Linton
told the board. I'm all for it: but
if we're going to do it (adopt the
ordinance) we need to be sure
that it is going to be enforced."
Richter told Linton it would
be up to the Judge to enforce
(Gulf County Judge Bob Moore).
He noted that Judge Moore origi-
nally presented the ordinance to

Will Board Replace Or Renovate Building?
Price Is Substantial Whichever Solution Is Decided Upon
Acting on the recommenda-
tion of a School Advisory Council,
the Gulf County School Board
asked for and received an educat-
ed guess about the costs of reno-
vating the present Port St. Joe
Elementary School building as
opposed to building a new one.
Architect Charles Arthur Gaskin
of Wewahitchka provided the
board with his evaluation of the
situation, giving them a wide dis-
crepancy between renovation and
Gaskin told the board, "I've
examined the old building thor-
oughly and found-it to be structu-
rally sound and perfectly func-
tional. Keep in mind that
whatever you do, you have two
big amenities in the present
building which the Department of
Education wouldn't provide fi-
nancing for in a new structure..
That is the gymnasium and audi-
Gaskin said the State Depart-
ment is not allowing enclosed
gymnasiums or aditoriums any
longer. 'You'd have to give these
up if you build a new building,"
the architect said.
GIVES BALLPARKI' PRICE
Gaskin went on with his re-
port to state, 'The old building is
sound and capable of being a.
very good school plant with comn-
plete renovation. Keep in mind,
too, that if you were to build a
new structure in the same loca-
tion, tearing the old structure
down, 'it would cost you half the
figure of a new building to clear
the old one away."
Gaskin told the board he had
extensive figures in a report to
the Board to show how he arrived
at both figures-for renovation
and for' a new building-for them
to study and make a decision.
"I took the location into con-
sideration as an ideal one for the
community, and came up with an
estimate of $2,230,000 to com-
pletely renovate the old building
and $6,800,000 for a new one,
less gymnasium and auditorium."
Gaskin said that in addition, he
recommended a new roof system
for the old building to eliminate
problems with leaks in addition.
to the renovation, which would
run the re-hab price'up an addi-
tional $400,000 to $500,000.
Gaskin said that he would
also recommend a package heat-
ing and. cooling unit for every
room or section of the new/
renovated school. "The present
system of a central boiler heating
water for steam heat is unsatis-
factory and expensive," he said.
Gaskin said he had included
such a system in both his renova-
tion and new building estimates.
TO STUDY REPORT
Norton Kilbourn, represent-
ing the School Advisory Council
was present but had no comment
to make on the report. He seemed
pleased that the board was taking
steps to bring about an improved
school plant for the community.
Superintendent of Public In-
struction Walter Wilder was ab-
sent, suffering from a bout with
the flu, so the Board didn't dis-
cuss the report to any length, ex-
cept to approve of the detailed re-
port Gaskn had prepared for their
Board Chairman Oscar Redd
suggested they set a workshop to
begin exploration of the Board's
options before arriving at a deci-
sion on which way to move.
In other items of business to
come before the board, they dis-
cussed several bus route chang-
es, adding a stop in the beaches
The board heard progress
and planning reports from three
county schools, getting good re-
ports on progress under way this
It was reported that a student
had dropped out of school this
year. It was the first drop-out the
system had experienced in two
years. The Board agreed to notify
the Department of Motor Vehicles
of the incident, so the subject's
drivers' license can be revoked ac-
cording to Florida law.
Port St. JoeElementary Shool Studie
PREPARATION WORK TO GET ready for a new proposed
marina here in Port St. Joe is currently under way. This prepar-
ation includes the .building of a new fishing reef in the Gulf of
Mexico, accessible from the Port St. Joe and beach community
The proposed reef is 25 miles southwest of the sea buoy,
within 3.5 miles of the shipping lanes..The deep water reef is be-
ing planned to attract some of the more desirable sea life, such
Sas grouper, snapper and this type game fish.
Several reefs have been built in this area just beyond the
nautical three mile limit and just before reaching the natural re-
sources boundary, which extends another three miles at sea.
These reefs, in comparatively shallow water have proven to be
popular and attract a fair amount of fish but the planned reef-
still another three miles plus at sea, would be even more produc-
tive than the present reefs.
MATERIAL FOR THIS reef has mostly been secured, but
still more material is being rounded up by the reef committee.
The remains of a bridge and other scrap material is ready to be
dumped on the ocean floor n an area a half mile square.
Transportation has been arranged for to haul the reef materi-
al out to sea and place it in the prescribed spot. Most of the
work has been done, from securing permits to marking the spot
on nautical charts.
SNow comes the part in which you can become Involved ...
the raising of the money!
You are not going to be asked to commit or pledge a sum of
money for the project. All you are being asked for, in order to
raise the necessary funds is to write a letter.
A LETTER OF APPROVAL from you will help secure the
money in the form of a grant from Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection. They have money for building fishing
reefs, but they will award it only to communities with responsi-
ble groups in place to administer it and see' that the fishing reef
is being properly built.
Bill Kennedy, an engineer with Preble-Rish Associates, is
heading up the group and offering it his particular expertise to
see that the reef is properly built. Your only responsibility is to
write a letter, recommending the reefs establishment and your
support of the project to Bill Kennedy, Port St. Joe Reef Coordi-
nator, 402 Reid Avenue, Port St. Joe, Florida 32456.
The reef must be in place by June 30 of this year, in order to
qualify for this year's granting cycle, so, you see, there is no time
to wait. Your support is imperative Write today!
A PARAGRAPH IN Jack Harper's column in The Star last
week, told about a little fuss Education Commissioner Frank
Brogan and teacher union speakers were having in setting per-
formance requirements for teacher graduates.
It seems Brogan wanted to require a BI performance in the
six hours of college credits the fledgling teachers would need in
order to get their certificates and avoid passing a test.
The teachers' union spokesmen wanted the requirements
lowered to a C average but Brogan held his ground, saying it
took no genius to make the B average.
AREN'T THE TEACHER unions to be just as zealous iin as-
I surfing we are getting quality teachers as they are in demanding
more money for less work? We thought so.
The watering down of teacher requirements in education
doesn't sound like it.
Brogan, to his credit-and for the benefit of every student in
Florida-said, "I will not agree to lower the standards!"
Bully for Frank Broganl
It's time someone in, authority stood up to teacher unions
and told them what the state of Florida expects in the way of
performance. The teacher unions have been calling the shots for
IT MUST GIVE students throughout Florida a mixed mes-
sage when they read such a statement as that, coming from

possible, sacrificing quality, in preparing themselves for their ca-

Did It FeeltoYou Like Earth Was Getting Warmer
IT WAS ONLY a couple of
weeks ago that Newsweek maga-
zine contained a big spread on
the gradual warming of the
Earth. Records showed a degree
of warming over about a 50 year
span and other subtle signs of
Shorelines are changing, but
the environmental people tell us
that is the normal fluidity of the
beach. When it decreases in one
place, it increases in another.
Here in Gulf County we have
seen that phenomenon all about
us. The shoreline is ever chang-
ing, but the total land-mass is re-
maining the same over a given
area. When the Stump Hole
erodes back to the road, the
beach is growing in another spot
along the Peninsula. It seems odd
that the shoreline inside the bay
has changed very little. Certain
spots have shown slight evidence -
of changing, but by and large the
shoreline is the same as it was in
charts of the bay which were
drawn 100 or so years ago.
BUT THAT ISN'T the reason
for this little blurb. I suppose the
shoreline recedes drastically in
some places while it is growing by
the same degree in other places.
Talking with George Core the-
other day, he was telling about a
lot he tried to buy in the Indian
Pass area [but couldn't] only to
have most of it disappear in the
surf a while later. Then within a
few more years, it had come back
and was now some .800 yards
more of dry land than when he
first tried to buy it.
The National Geographic
magazine is always telling us in
articles and pictures of volcanoes
somewhere in the world spewing
out whatever they spew out and-
making more. land. In other
words, the dry land area of the
Earth continues to grow.
I'm no scientist. All I know is
.what I read and what I see in my
own limited sphere of activity, but
whether the Earth is growing, re-
ceding, growing warmer, or grow-
ing colder, I don't expect any
drastic changes in my lifetime.
THIS LAST WEEKEND sort
of leaves a lot of "evidence" to re-
fute arguments that the Earth is
gradually getting warmer. This
entire winter has presented evi-
dence against any claim we're
about to experience any unduly
warm temperatures. I'm just as
convinced we'll all give the matter
serious consideration and validity

warm by a degree or two.

Bill Kennedy Reveals Marina
Plans to Kiwan s Club Tuesday
Asks For Public Support In Building Fishing Reef
Bill Kennedy, with Prebble-
Rish Associates, outlined the
plans and time-table for a pro-
posed marina to be built here in
Port St. Joe at the Kiwanis Club
meeting Tuesday at noon.
Kennedy said that when the
project was first initiated over a
year ago, they met some major
hurdles from environmental peo-
ple, who, in effect told the com-
mittee. "If you insist on putting
the facility there, don't expect any
monetary help from the state."
The project was then moved
from Its proposed site adjacent to
the city boat launch site on Fifth
Street, to an alternate location in
the Gulf County Canal.
'We are presently looking at
two sites for the installation,"
Kennedy said. Both proposed lo-
cations are just a short distance
from the business district and
will pffer boaters deep water ac-
cess arid adequate storage facili-
Kennedy stressed, "No specif-
ic site has been selected, as yet."
Plans have been drawn using the
concept of a dredged boat basin,
since both locations offer this
type off installation. So design of
the basin has progressed even
though the definite' location still
has not been decided upon.

said. 'We have the money'allocat-

Kennedy pointed out that
there was still "considerable per-

prior to construction.

present at the meeting, said that "
even though the marina would be
in the city's name, private opera- ,'

would be the aim of the City

Kennedy said that along with
the marina project he is involved
in securing permission to place a

"'We have several pieces of materi-

possibility of considerable more,"
the speaker said.

by Dave Maddox
In 1893 my grandfather Mad-
dox and his brother, Dave, moved
their cattle from the Apalachicola
area to the head of St. Joe Bay
because this site offered a better
grazing range due to an abun-
dance of salt water Bermuda
grass. They built a small house
adjacent to the old Peter Gautler
home in Gautier Hammock and
lived there until 1896.
Since three or four lighthous-
es had washed away at Cape San
Blas, the Lighthouse Board decid-
ed to relocate the lighthouse on
Black's Island. After the founda-
tion for the tower was construct-
ed and one dwelling completed, a
question arose concerning the
visibility of the Black's Island
light off shore on the cape shoals.
Without the aid of slide rules and
computers, the solution was to
erect a tall pole with a light on
top and go out in the gulf far
enough to determine if this light-
house would serve effectively
from this location. The light could
not be seen so the Idea of a light-
house on. Black's, Island was
abandoned. The board decided to
continue using the existing light,
house' at Cape San Blas although
the tower base was in the edge of
' the gulf waters.
The Lighthouse Board hired
my grandfather to be caretaker of
this house and the materials that
had been assembled on the is-
land to build the lighthouse so he
moved his family to Black's Is-
One Sunday in 1898 the fam-
ily boarded their sailboat and
sailed up to the head of Light-
house Bayou. They tied up across
from what is now known as the
"Stumphole" and walked over to
the lighthouse to visit the Charles
Lupton family. Mr. Lupton was
the Cape San Bias Lighthouse
keeper at the time.
During his visit they heard
some loud shooting out in the
gulf and ran to the gulf beach.
They watched a navy gunboat
chasing a gun runner carrying
guns and ammunition from Pen-
sacola to Cuba. Mr. Lupton and
my grandfather made the chil-
Relates A Tale of Excitement His
Family Had Before Turn of Century
dren get down behind the sand
dunes for fear they might get hit
by the bullets. This scene so ex-
cited my grandfather that he de-
cided to join the navy and get in
the action. He immediately moved
his family back to Apalachicola
and hitched a ride on a sailboat
to Tampa to join the navy, re-
questing duty on a fighting ship.
Naturally, he was assigned to a
freighter hauling cattle from Tam-
pa to Cuba for meat for the
troops. He requested a transfer to
another ship but this request was
denied. While anchored in Tampa
Bay one night he slid 'down a line,
swam ashore, and deserted his
ship. The next morning he joined
the navy under an assumed
name, again requesting duty on a
fighting ship. This time he was
assigned to a gunboat going to
Cuba. Sometime after arriving in
Cuba the ship ran aground and
while aground was attacked by a
Spanish vessel' so he finally got
the action he had been looking
for. Many years later he applied
for a Spanish-American War Pen-
sion but was denied because he
was a deserter under his correct
name. This all got started be-
cause of a Sunday afternoon visit

Walsingham said the replica deer

during the day or at night.
In most cases officers set up

before bowling over the decoy
with his bumper.
A day later Officers Charles

the effects of the flu Monday and

Stephanie Maxwell hit a free
throw with less than 10 seconds
left to give the Sharks a one point
lead at halftime. She went on to
score 14 points as the only Shark
scoring in double figures.
The Sharks played man-to-
man defense in the second half to
keep the Bulldogs off balance just
enough to capture the win in the
close contest. The Sharks never
trailed in the second half, despite
the closeness of the score.

"The Best Excuse"
WES faculty and staff have
stressed walking, not running, on
the sidewalks as long as I can re-
member. Still, boys and girls feel
inclined to run.
After a recent fire drill, the
students in my classroom were
meandering back to our class-
room. Ahead of the line, about
ten children began to run. I wait-
ed patiently until we got into the
classroom and then very calmly
asked those who had 'run to
stand up. As I listened to a mult-
tude of excuses, the best one was
from Geoffrey Helms.
This is what he said: "I am

You may have heard recently
about a new style of scheduling
'that many counties in Florida
have begun using. "Block sched-
uling', in its simplest form (there
are many variations) refers to a
different approach to the daily
schedule of high school students.
The style presently being
studied' in Gilf County is called
"4 x 4 Block", in which a student
.:attends four classes, each day
.with 90-minute periods. This al-
lows the student to complete a
course in one semester, rather
than the whole school year.
A little math shows you the
student taking four periods would
complete four courses the first se-
mester. Then he/she registers for
four more classes the second se-
mester, and when finished will'
have':earned eight credits -for the
year. In four years' time (ninth
through twelfth grades) the stu-
dent could earn as many as 32
credits, father than the 24 or so
credits they presently can earn.
With any new program there
are always some advantages and
some disadvantages, which the
administrators and school board
will have to carefully .study and'
discuss. As we become more fa-

CONSERVATIVE CAUCUS A GOOD THING
Sen. Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee, and 11 other Democratic sen-
ators in the state Senate did the voters a favor in organizing a
Conservative Caucus. It clears the air and announces for all to see the
obvious fact that Florida is out-of-step with the party liberals, nationally
Its a little amusing, of course. Why not Just switch to the Republican
Party as Senate dean and bantam rooster W. D. Childers from Pensacola
did last year. He announced .the Denmocrats had deserted him, not he
them, and that he was more comfortable with the Republican philosophy.
Make no mistake about it. Unlike President Clinton, who talks con-
servative but acts liberal, it is safer to bet these senators mean what they
say and aren't talking out of both sides of their mouths.
'The perception is that the Democratic Party is the party of liberalism
and that the Republican Party is the party of conservatism. I'm tired of
getting branded with that," said Sen. Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee, at
the organization meeting.
"Unless the Democratic Party can show that they can at least under-
stand how the majority of the people in this state think and relate to those
people, then as a party we're not going to be around much longer" said
Sen. George Kirkpatrick. D-Gainesville.
Voters should note well who those 12 senators are; No doubt a few of
them. joined the conservative movement out of political expediency
instead of actual philosophy, but there is hope for all of them and for the
future of Florida.. : :
The senators attending the organization meeting included, besides
Williams and Kirkpatrick. Senators Ronald D. Silvers, North Miami
Beach; Pat Thomas, Quincy, former Senate speaker: Daryl Jones, Miami,
slated to become Senate.Ieader later this year; Patsy Ann Kurth, Malabar;
John H. Dyer Jr, Orlando; Howard C. Forman, Pembroke Pines; James T.
Hargrett, Jr., Tampa; Tom Rossin, West Palm Beach; Karen Johnson,
Inverness; and Rick Dantzler, Winter Haven.
It's also interesting to note that the two Florida House Democrats who
attended the Senate's conservative caucus meeting are Allen Boyd,
Monticello, who is running for a Congressional seat this year, and Kelley
Smith, Palatka. Both often break with Gov. Lawton Chiles and the House
Hey! Maybe that staunch young liberal, House Speaker Peter Wallace,
St Petersburg, won't come back from Siberia where he ison a political
junket if the House forms an official Conservative Democratic Caucus too.
It already has an unofficial one.
Kelleyl Allenl How about it?
FEWER LAWYERS? DON'T COUNT ON IT.
Although applications for law schools dropped seven percent at
Florida State University and eight percent at the University of Florida last
year, both institutions still turn down roughly two out of three students
So don't expect any shortage of lawyers soon in spite of surveys that
show the 0. J, Simpson murder case and other media attention have
pummeled the profession's prestige. Fewer obs out there mostly account
for the decline in interest.
F. Lee Bailey, the famous attorney who so-enjoyed playing the 'nig-
ger" (his word) card at the recent O. J. Simpson trial no doubt helped law
school enrollments across the country in Ocala last week. Oh, he was
found in contempt of court alright for the way he handled $27 million in
a Swiss bank account for a convicted international drug dealer. But the
significance of all that easy money in his possession wasn't lost on many
young students with larceny in their souls. Yep, a few more lawyers were
probably created In Florida last week.

BILLS WOULD SLAM TEENAGE SMOKERS
Teenagers caught possessing tobacco will be fined $25 and lose their
driver licenses if bills scheduled for the upcoming session of the Florida
Legislature are passed. The difference In this proposed legislation to
efforts in the past to censure teenage smoking Is that the powerful tobac-
co lobby has Indicated It will support the tough new proposed laws.
BANNED BIBLE BACK IN SCHOOL
It was bound to happen, of course. Orange County school officials
went too far when they caught a fourth grader reading his bible silently
during a classroom 'study period. The teacher said his bible was not
allowed in public school, although some have in their libraries books
such as HEATHER HAS TWO MOMMIES and DADDYS NEW ROOMMATE.
The ban was challenged in court until school officials backed off it
and paid the boy's legal fees.
The first amendment in the constitution says government shall make
no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exer-
Card-carrying education union members might not like it, but the
school board is to be congratulated for,its enlightened decision. There is
nothing wrong with every child being given the opportunity to create his
or her own Identity and to adhere to his family values publicly.
Here's the Capitol News Roundup
PLEASE DON'T FEED THE LEGISLATORS :
Those dang Republicans have gone too far, claim lobbyist and restau-
rant owners in Tallahassee. Now they want to end free'meals and drinks
for legislators during their sessions.
State law already limits gifts to legislators to $100, but there is an
exemption for food and drink that isconsumed in one sitting.
Now along comes Florida Senate President Jim Scott, R-Fort
Lauderdale, who said he pays his own way at lunches and dinners and is
increasingly convinced that all legislators should do the same.
"I want to find a way to restore public confidence in the Legislature,"
said Scott who may propose a ban on free meals during what is known as
the "gravy days" at the state capital during the regular spring session.
Restaurant owners in Tallahassee and lobbyists are objecting. Some
legislators contend they are not swayed by the free meals and that min-
gling with other lawmakers at meals paid for by lobbyists is an important
part of gaining information and support for legislation.,
Others see it differently.
Senate dean W. D. Childers, R-Pensacola, said: 'What we've got is
hypocrisy. We've got a $100 gift limit which we know is a joke."
"I think the perception (of buying votes) is there, although a dinner is
not going to buy anybody's vote," said Sen. Mario Balart, R-Miami, anoth-
er senator who said he would vote to ban free meals.
Former House Speaker now lobbyist Ralph Haben said banning free'
meals will only hurt the small, public-interest lobbyist who don't have
much money for campaign contributions. The bigtime special interests
will just shift their money back to the campaign fund raisers.
'The one thing poor lobbyists could do during the session was take a
legislator out to lunch or dinner." Haben said.
THEY'LL SUE TO STOP 'BO'S BRIDGE'
SThe controversial $92-million toll bridge approved by the Florida
Cabinet inSanta Rosa County will soon face a suit from the Florida Sierra
Club in federal court.
The club's legal defense team said it was concerned about how polit-
ical pressure was used to push the permit through the system.
SECOND THOUGHTS ON MANGROVE LAW
Sen. Jack Latvala, R-St. Petersburg, wants to revise the Mangrove
Trimming and Preservation Act he sponsored and helped pass in last
year's session of the Florida Legislature.
Under heavy attack from environmental activists, he hopes to balance
the law with revisions to protect mangroves and the rights of landowners.
Under the proposed bill, no mangrove could be cut lower than 6 feet.
No mangrove taller than 24 feet could be cut and chemical defoliants
could not be used. It would also make. it clear that landowners could not
cut mangroves on adjacent public lands.
BILLS WOULD PROTECT WITNESSES
Sen. Tom Rosin and Rep. Addle Green. Democrats-West Palm Beach,
are proposing bills to set up a state witness protection fund of about
$200,000 to insulate key witnesses from defendants' threats, at least
from the time of arrest until the trial Is over.
"It would not be like the federal witness protection program which
gives witnesses new identities and relocates them," Rosin said.
The bills are sparked by a case in Palm, Beach County when the
intimidation of three witnesses resulted in dropped homicide charges
against a defendant who later was convicted of another slaying.
The Gulf County Board of Bounty Commissioners
will hold a public hearing at 5:00 P.M., E.S.T. on
Tuesday, February 13, 1996 in the Commission

Love In Action
We :all need to be told we are loved. We
also need to be shown we are loved in some
tangible way. Paul's letter to the church in
Corinth gives an excellent definition of love
in the thirteenth chopt~i-qf First Corinthi-
ans. All of us need leopl-iniour lives. Often
people will say to me, "I don't care what oth-
ers think." Generally this means, that they
care very much, and they are hurting.
Isolation and loneliness can cause physi-
cal illness. There are words in a song which
say, "People who need people are the lucki-
est people in the world." The truth found in
this song means that I am a very lucky per-
son. Love is more than just words and state-
ments made to another
person.' Irn Corinthians
13:7 we find, "Love
Sbeears all things, be-
liev.es all things, hopes
all things, endures :all
"- ^ things."

Cherries Can Add Festive Flavor
According to folklore, as a young
boy, George Washington chopped down
a cherry tree and, then, confessed to his
father because he "could not tell a lie."
Why he chopped down that cherry tree,
most people do not know; however,
those small ruby fruits have left an
impression on many. Today, cherries are
a popular snack and dessert ingredient
for people of all ages.
February is National Cherry Month,
the perfect complement for patriotic
celebrations in honor of Presidents'
Day and for romance on Valentine's
Most people are only familiar with
cherries as a pie filling, dessert topping
and summer snack. However, cherries
also add flavor and a festive spirit to
main dishes, salads,' beverages and

they are a good source of potassium
and vitamin A. They contain no choles-
terol and practically no fat.
There are two types of cherries -
tart and sweet; Tart cherries also are
called pie or sour cherries. They gen-
erally are canned or frozen and are
rarely ever sold fresh. Dried cherries
are a new way to enjoy tart cherries.
These dried fruits make wonderful
snacks and can be found in gourmet
stores and select supermarkets. Sweet
cherries are sold fresh during the sum-

The pain of Severs generally
