hard in his bee apiary near the
tupelo marshes of the Florida
Panhandle, keeping bees.
With his only son in prison
and his wife dead, he is raising
his two granddaughters alone.
Trouble starts when two old
friends of his imprisoned son
show up. Ulee and his estranged
family rediscover one another and
are transformed, by the terrible
danger they are facing together.

FAMU Joins WIG In Center Design
Ideas Presented For Inspection, Discussion At Public Meeting Friday Evening
Artists' Model Of Proposed Recreation Complex
Architects in training from
Florida A&M University presented
their ideas for a community cen-
ter to serve North Port St. Joe to
an appreciative audience last Fri-
day. The Washington Recreation
Center was the site of the presen-
tation of the student design se-
ries, conducted under the direc-
tion of Associate Professor Mike
Alfano. This design series consti-
tuted an entire semester project
by eleven graduate students in
the FAMU School of Architecture.
The Washington Improve-
ment Group is a grassroots com-
munity development organization
based in North Port St. Joe. Com-
munity members have banded to-
gether to improve life for everyone
in the community. A major goal of
the Washington Improvement
Group is to create a much needed
community center in North Port
St. Joe. This community center
will be based in the old Washing-
ton High School gymnasium.
Under Professor Alfano's di-
rection, the students first re-
searched community centers
around the nation, gathering in-
formation on the purposes and
Scope of these centers. Next, they
traveled to Port St. Joe on two
separate occasions to view the
site and to interview community
residents. Then, they let their
creative juices flow. With stu-
dents from around the globe in-
volved, the ideas were wide-
ranging and imaginative.
Jeanette Woldman, from Hol-
land, used a wave as her unifying
theme, finding the forward mov-
ing wave in pathways and fa-
cades. Mandela Diamini, of Swa-
ziland, Africa, concentrated on
axis of traffic flow and a memorial
path to honor past leaders.
Thomas Riley, from Cottondale,
was interested in providing space
and buildings to house everything

The models and drawings
brought fresh ideas, unencum-
bered by what has been, to the
thought processes of the Wash-
ington Improvement Group Board
of Directors. In a meeting Satur-
day, everyone expressed amaze-
ment at the wealth of ideas and
creative design used by the stu-
dents. "We picked up some won-
derful ideas that we want to in-
corporate into our final designs,"
said Thaddus Russ, Vice Chair of
WIG. "I was impressed, and really
enjoyed seeing all of the different
approaches the students took,"
said Sally Jenkins, WIG Board
The Washington Improve-
ment Group is in a good position
to take their next step, which is
to have a licensed architect create
the final design for the communi-
ty center. With the ideas provided
by the FAMU students, the only
problem will be selecting the best
of a number of great proposals.

FICO FARMS SELL-OUT HAS brought an end to the dream
of farming operations in Gulf County's extensive wetlands. It's a
pity, because to us, that much land lying fallow seems to be
such a waste. Of course, it has always been valuable as wet-
lands. We need a certain amount of acres for that important
purpose, but why not let the land do double duty if it can?
People with that in mind have tried several different methods
of using the land while it was operating as wetlands, but none
have made money at their attempts; and that's what it takes to
make such operations successful.
MK RANCHES WERE the first to get in onithe "great experi-
ment" in the. Willis Swamp/Bay City areas. They cleared thiou-
sands of acres of hardwoods and planted pastures, soybeans,
rice and catfish in an attempt at having a profitable operation.
Rains and periodic lowland flooding drove these ventures out of
business. Nature was jealous of her wetlands.' ,
Then came the T. L. James Co. and their clearing, planting
and development operations in the Overstreet area. The James
Company, with operations which eventually stretched all the
way to Wewahitchka, was later sold or reorganized into the FICO
operation. FICO was diversified until they began to sell off their
lands some five of six years ago. They had cattle on the east side
of the Overstreet'Road and everything from cattle feed, to pea-
nuts, to soybeans, to blueberries, to pecans on the west side of
the road. They had quite an operation and seemed to be moving
Until the news came recently of their sale..
FICO plowed under their 500-plus acres of blueberries a year
or twp back. They recently gave up on their pecan production.
More recently they seemed to have given up on an agricultural
future for Gulf County.
THE GREAT EXPERIMENT for Gulfs "wasted" wetlands
seems destined to end iup right where it started: with a future
devoted to doing just what it has done for centuries.
Gulf County's niche in Florida's history has always been in
the tree and naval stores business. It appears that any agricul-
tural future it is destined to have-at least in marketable quanti-
ties-is in growing pine trees. But that isn't so bad. The demand
for pine trees seems to be booming with the passing years.
Doing It Right
SFROM ALL APPEARANCES, everyone except the residents
who live there, are going to do alright from the summer olympics
in Atlanta this July. The City of Atlanta is going to make money
off the event, from all appearances, and the Braves are going to
realize a new stadium out of the deal.
Enough firms are "Official Supporters" of the games that At-
lanta will have nothing to do except sit back and say "We want.
a. and everybody seems to be standing ready and waiting to
fulfill every request.
Has there ever been a host for the Olympics which has taken
as much advantage from the event? Even Sarajevo didn't realize
as much,.monetary support. Or maybe they did and they're using
the money they made to pay for their un-chil war going on over
ATLANTA IS UTILIZING that old Yankee ingenuity at every
turn. Hats, T-shirts, billboards even a set of matched gold
coins which are selling at over a grand per set, are all being used
to tout the games. Atlanta just may insist on the games return-
ing there in four years "to take advantage of all these facilities
we have built here". Don't fault Atlanta over the situation. They:
were just astute enough to take advantage of a good thing.
The fact that Atlanta is the epitome of a southern city enters
into this picture, also. Way back when General Sherman was
knocking on the door of the hub of the south. It had a popula-
tion of only 15,000 citizens [according to the audio which accom-
panies the showing of the Cyclorama in that city]. Today, they
have taken advantage of their situation to attract well over a mil-
lion citizens. They are just still taking advantage of their situa-
ATLANTA IS MERELY DOING what even\ other city in the
United States is attempting to do. They are tooting their own6
horn very effectively and getting the desired results. We men-
tioned General Sherman and his little soiree through Georgia. It
_had a tremendous effect on Atlanta and the rest of Georgia, but "
we're not at all sure the effects were entirely detrimental. It
seems to have made the state determined to show the rest of the
world just how resilient they can be.

IT'S SATISFYING when a

special honors from such a pre-

special ceremony on the occasion
of the hanging of his portrait 'in
the capital building.
The ceremony was performed
Wednesday. April 17, before the

Appleman Seeks Fifth Term As 14th
Ai&.,%: Circuit State Attorney
Jim Appleman, State Attor-
ney for the Fourteenth Judicial
Circuit, announced this week
that he will be a candidate for a
fifth term in the office, which
serves Bay, Calhoun, Gulf,
Holmes, Jackson and Washington
Appleman stated, 'We are
committed to providing the people
of this Circuit with the best legal
services available and assert the
rights of crime victims, witnesses,
and law enforcement throughout
the courts of this area. We will
continue to be deeply concerned
about conviction rates, proper
sentences for criminal defen-
dants, restitution to our crime
victims, and the wise expenditure
of your tax dollars."
Appleman says that in 1994,
the Fourteenth Judicial .Circuit
had the lowest crime rate in the
State of Florida and has had one
of the lowest crime rates for the
past ten years. He stated that the
ability to achieve this low crime
rate shows the cooperation be-
tween the State Attorney's Office
and local law enforcement'agen-
cies to ensure the safety of the
Appleman noted that his
record shows a commitment to
reduction of the crime rates, in-
creasing conviction rates, restitu-
tion to crime victims, asserting
the rights of victims, witnesses
and law enforcement in the court-
rooms, and finally, the wise ex-
penditure of tax dollars. The
State Attorney stated these same
reasons will be the basis of his
re-election as Attorney for the
Fourteenth Circuit in September.
PSJPD Used Small Grant to
Get High Neighborhood Results
Foot Patrols and Community Friendship Reduce Crime
There was a time when drug
crimes were virtually unknown in
Port St. Joe, and arrests inside
the city reflected this. For in-
stance, as recently as 1992, there
were. only two drug-related ar-
rests in Port St. Joe for the year.
But things quickly changed until
in February 1995, there were over
60 arrests inside the city on drug
The number of arrests reflect
that crime has never been a big
thing in Port St. Joe. One or two
arrests for a major crime per year
was about the norm until 1993,
when the number of arrests be-
gan to grow. Records show that in
1992, only 63 individuals were
arrested during the year. That av-
eraged just slightly more than
one a week. with those usually
being for burglaries, drunken-
ness, and like charges.
Then the drug trade was in-
troduced to the city and the ar-
rest picture drastically changed.
Along with the drug charges came
crimes historically linked with the
drug trade as a means of financ-
ing a habit. Arrests for assault
jumped from zero in both 1992
and 1993 to 20 in 1994.
TAKE CORRECTION STEPS
The city, through its police
( department, stated taking steps
to correct this situation.
Recognizing that the greater
number of arrests were originat-
ing in one section of the commu-
nity, the Police Department began
to seek the aid of different citi-
zens' groups in the community,
for help.-; .
But first, the Police Depart-
ment realized they, too, had an
accountability problem with the
area and they had to work on
Seeking grants to finance
their efforts, the police applied for
a $96,000 grant for this purpose
from the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs and an outsider's
evaluation of the situation from
Florida State University through
their Institute for Health and Hu-
man Services Research.
Their study resulted in the
suggestion of 10 points designed
to foster the citizens' trust and
strengthen the bonds of recogni-
tion between them and the citi-
zens which were affected three-
fourths of the time.

Herman Jones, a supporter of
seeing the Cape, San Blas Light-

written the Coast Guard Com-
mander for this area a letter, ex-

warts differs from that of other. con-

The culprit that causes..plantar
warts is a virus. Although it can in-
fect people of any age, youngsters
are especially susceptible. Walking
barefoot on dirty surfaces risks expo-

Will Baby Have
What can an expectant mioth-
er do to make sure her baby will
grow up to have healthy teeth?
There are two things that will
make all the difference in the
One is the child's genetic
makeup, the genes he or she in-
herits from both parents. They
will help determine the size,
shape, texture, and other quali-
ties of a child's teeth. There's
nothing a parent can do to con-
trol this. It just happens.
But there is something an ex-
pectant mother can do to give
baby a good dental start. She
can do whatever possible to pro-
tect her health.
She should eat a .well-
balanced diet, as recommended
by her physician. And she should
avoid infection, including tooth
decay and gum disease. Any in-
fection can havb unhealthy con-
sequences for' mother and child.
A dental checkup and treatment
will help eliminate any source of
infection caused by decayed
teeth or gum disease.
Once baby's bottom is
slapped and the crying starts,
you should start planning for that
first visit to the dentist at about
age three. That's when all 20 of
the primary teeth should, be
erupted and your dentist can
evaluate progress or problems.

to promote better dental health.

will, to win. I believe that this
year's success began last year
when our girls learned how to
compete. Along the way we lost
some girls who discovered that,
with competition comes hard
work and sacrifice, but those who.
remained received a reward of ac-
complishment that will serve'

Biblical Values Seem
Destined To Return
To Florida Classrooms
Nudge By England's Margaret
Thatcher Seemed To Do The Trick
PRAYER, TRUTH, AND FREEDOM
There is a surprising glimmer of hope in this session of the Florida
Legislature that the pendelum may be turning back to prayer, truth, free-
dom and biblical values in line with what England's Iron Lady Margaret
Thatcher said at a seminar last week titled, "Reclaiming America's Moral
and Cultural Heritage."
Those are four dollar words, of course, and the political arena here in
Taxahassee might be an unlikely place to find Holy Joes, or Minnie's for
that matter, who really believe in them. We're more accustomed to finan-
cial turkeys for special interests back home, outright robbing of the pub-
lic till, and free wining, dining and sometimes drunk driving and carous-
ing of legislators.
But how else can you explain the fact that student-led prayers at
graduation and other middle and high school events have a good chance
of passing both Houses this session and going to the governor for his sig-
nature. It's only one small step to putting God back into public schools,
but it could indicate a turning point away from modern-day humanistic
relativism that has caused a moral breakdown in America.
There are other indications of a possible return to biblical values in
welfare reforms, and tougher adult and criminal justice legislation, but
none of it means anything until it seeps down into the homes and neigh-
borhoods and into the hearts of individuals.'
Thatcher said last week freedom cannot survive unless it is based on
a moral foundation. Others at the seminar said separation of church and
state was designed by our founding fathers to protect the church from the
state, not the other way around. They also said fatherlessness is the most
harmful social trend of this generation and Hollywood no longer reflects-

Even more ominously, they pointed out that when truth falls and

Tyranny, dear reader, is big government, high taxes, rules and regu-
lations, and the relegation of individual freedom to the trash can.
Another example of backing biblical truth instead of relativism was
the United Methodist Church vote in Denver last week upholding its pol-
icy that homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching. The gen-
eral conference also approved plans to seek a merger with the three
largest black Methodist churches in America, a move falling under the
biblical values umbrella.
It's a good sign. We can't leave this important stuff to the political
wolves in sheep's clothing of this world.

COLLEGES TO GET 7% TUITION HIKES
Florida legislators agreed in budget negotiations to allow a tuition
increase of 7 percent at state universities. They allowed the presidents to
decide how each institution spends the money, but denied them the right
to set the rate.
'We're giving the universities the chance to decide how to spend the
money as long as they don't spend it on academic administration," said
Rep. Buzz Ritchie, D-Pensacola.
The tuition increase will raise about $17 million for the state's nine
universities. Currently, tuition covers about $1,775 of the total cost of a
year at a state university of about $12,000. The state pays the balance.
'We'rve gone from bargain basement to. a. bargain," said State
Universiy Chancellor Charles Reed. ..., ,;.. .
SBudget negotiators also agreed to total cuts insocial programs of
some $300 million to $400 million. The House had wanted cuts of about
$330 million and the Senate had proposed $570 million. The difficult part
for lawmakers was to decide what specific programs to cut.
Chiles said he would veto the budget if cuts in social programs were
Lawmakers are rushing to agree on a budget so they can end the 60-
day regular session by Friday.
The tuition issue was a bargaining chip at the negotiating conference.
PRIVATE PRISONS MAY GET GO-AHEAD SIGNAL
House and Senate negotiators have agreed to privatize the building of
new prison beds instead of financing them with bonds, but they want to
attach some new rules to be sure taxpayers will not be paying as much
or more than they do now. .....
Three new private prisons are under construction in Florida now and
one is open and running at Gretna In Gadsden County.
The committee agreement was in the hands of House Speaker Peter
Wallace and Senate President Jim Scott early this week.
Wallace wanted to issue bonds to build new prison beds now and pay
for them later. Scott wanted to postpone further expansion of.the prison
system this year because of a temporary over-supply of beds due to a
falling crime rate in the face of stiffer laws and sentencing guidelines.
Gov. Lawton Chiles who hasn't committed himself on whether he will
veto the measure or not proposed in his budget to bond for prisons now
and pay for them after he leaves office. '
HOUSE VOTES TO KEEP FREE MEALS
'Speaker Peter Wallace suffered a dramaticdefeat when House mem-
bers voted 83-34 to keep its free meals and entertainment gifts from paid
lobbyists. They agreed to report any meals they receive valued between
$25 and $100, but they defeated Wallace's proposal to any lobbyist-spon-
sored meal of more than $25.

to ban accepting campaign contributions during the session, a move the
Senate has so far refused to take.
Among House members voting to keep the free meals coming were:
Allen Boyd, D-Monticello; Buddy Johnson, R-Plant City; John Laurent, R-
Bartow; Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee; Carl Littlefleld, R-Dade City; Randy

CHILES CAN VETO REDISTRICTING
Federal judges who tossed redistricting of the Third Congressional
District back into the lap of the Florida Legislature say Gov. Lawton
Chiles can either veto or sign the redistrictng plan submitted to; him by
Senate President Jim Scott, R-Fort Lauderdale, had questioned
whether Chiles had a role to play under the orders of the three judge
panel that ruled the district was unconstitutional because it was gerry-
mandered to assure the election of a black candidate to Congress.
The judges did not specify in their order whether Chiles was to play
a role In the redistricting but said in their public announcement it would
be just like passing any other bill.
VETO OVERRIDE RAISED ITS HEAD AGAIN
The possibility is better than good that the Florida Senate will vote a
second time on whether to override Gov. Lawton Chiles' veto of a bill
passed last year that would repeal. the Third Party Liability law that gives
the state a huge advantage in its suit against the tobacco industry.
Senate President Jim Scott said because of the lack of time left in the
session he would not let senators debate bills similar to measures already
defeated in the House. His statement is being interpreted to mean he will
not allow the Senate to take up a compromise bill voted down in the
House that would change the law to specify it applies only to the tobacco
Some lawmakers believe the bill is necessary to uphold Chiles' veto of
the repeal of the law he and his henchmen passed without debate in the
closing days of the session in 1994.
It would assure other industries-including alcohol, gun, and even
beef and hog farmers-that the same law would not be used against
HIGH TOMATO PRICES IMMORAL?
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Bob Crawford blamed skyrocketing
tomato prices on "gouging" grocers and the Mexican growers who are sup-
"It's legal in Florida, but it is probably immoral," Crawford said when
he released results of a four-week survey of sales in five major Florida
cities that showed tomato prices at about $3 a pound in the markets with
only about $1 of that going to the farmer.
The markup is about 269%, Crawford said. A reasonable markup
would be 50 to 60%; he added.
Tomato grower Will Maxwell. ofQuincy, said he remembered his fam-
ily being put out of tobacco growing some 25 years ago by the importing
of tobacco from Nicaragua. He turned to tomatoes after, that. Now, he
said, he wonders If the same thing is going to happen again.
