Signs of Fall
In the mountains and Northern
parts of the United States, they tell us
one can tell it is the Fall season of the
year by the turning of the leaves. Too,
many have written reams and reams
about the beauty of the Fall colors
made by the turning leaves.
Here in Northern Florida we see
some of this. The leaves of the
hardwoods turn before they fall off for
the winter, but the famed brilliance of
the mountains and the North are not
there. Our feel of fall comes mostly
through the changing temperature.
Another indication of the Fall
season in these parts of Florida is in
viewing the number of people out
raking pine needles along about this
time. Their number is legion and a
true indication of Fall Florida
style. Star photo

Once more we agree with Sena-

Swe agreed with him was when he
Admitted that he reacted miserably
at the incident of Chappaquidick.
Senator Ted said over the week
end that it was a mistake to allow
Arab guerilla Yasir Arafat to ap-
pear before the United Nations. In
the first place, he does not repre-
sent a nation, he represents a
group trying to destroy a sovereign
nation. Secondly, he is an outlaw,
with the expressed purpose of
pushing an established people out
of their home land.
Kennedy said, "I think Arafat's
speech was inappropriate, unfor-
tunate and counter-productive in
terms of a Middle East solution".
:Aafat's statements before the UN
could do nothing but stir up the
already boiling tempers in this part
of the world, while the express

maintain some waterfront property
for sale for development, with
proper restrictions promulgated by
our governing bodies.

It's strange how we get used to certain
things and doing various tasks in certain ways;
hearing certain sounds in a given instance. If a
train goes by close to,our bed, we start awake,
but if it goes by our bed each night at the same
time, we don't notice it. If it's late or early,
then we notice it.
When I pick up the telephone to make a
long distance call, I expect to hear a delight-
fully: feminine voice courteously ask for the
number which I wish to call. :
The other day, I was calling Miami, person
to person, so I had to use the operator. Imagine
my startled psyche when a definitely male
voice came on the line and asked, "Number,
I was so startled at not hearing a female
voice that I blurted out, "What's a man doing
answering for the long distance operator?" He
was just as quick on the gun when he replied,
"Just trying to work a little".
I went ahead and gave him the number I
wished to call even though I didn't really
expect him to be able to complete the call. That
work has always been done by ladies, and men
just don't seem capable in this endeavor,
somehow. I got my number, however. The
male telephone operator seemed to be just
efficient as the female operator.
We have become accustomed to reading
about the women demanding the opportunity to
invade the typically male positions in the past
few years, but to actually become involved in a
case where a man has invaded a female
bastion is enough to shake a person up if he
I remember, back around Hallowe'en, I
went to the switchboard operation room of the
St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraph Company
to take a picture of the operators all dressed up
in Hallowe'en costumes. There was a man on
the premises then, dressed like a ghost, but I
didn't pay any attention to him. I just thought
he was one of the maintenance men in the
switching room who had been coerced into
donning a costume. That must have been my
male telephone operator who was "just trying
and its impact on the rights
of property owners will be
one of the important issues
before the Florida Legisla-
ture in the '75 session.
Considerable study was
given to the complex problem
in the last session, but the
Legislature left the question
unresolved. A growing pro-
test over restrictions placed
on property in the name of
may force legislative action.
The restrictions have been
placed under the 1972 Land
and Water Management Act
which gives the State Cabinet
authority to establish controls
over land by declaring it an
area of critical concern.
The Act has been invoked
in putting controls on pro-
perty development in the Big
Cypress Swamp and the
Green Swamp areas.
The Cabinet also has
authority to oversee develop-
ments which affect more
than one county as well as
power to regulate beach
development by establishing
coastal construction setback
Unfortunately, the law ig-
nores the rights of the pro-
perty owner, and this is a
point which needs to be re-
medied. It is not an easy
question to resolve, and what-
ever the Legislature does will
to work a little".
while we have the men invading the job
opportunities of women and women likewise
claiming to be able to hold many of the
positions formerly reserved for men, we have
one problem which may take the combined
efforts of both to solve.
There is a world wide shortage of bees.
Don't laugh. This is serious. An article I
read recently said there are only one quarter
the number of bees needed by the world busy
at their task today. Their task, of course, is
pollinization of nearly every living plant from
foodstuffs to flowers for the table.
Here in the Panhandle, we look on the bee
as that tiny animal which turns the tupelo
blossom into the unique honey made only in the
Apalachicola River valley. Too, the bee is that
pesky insect which sometimes swarms around
the city during the Spring when the flowers
begin to bloom and causes some uneasy
feelings among the people here, waiting for a
The bee is a very valuable animal for
things other than making honey.
According to the article I read, the bees
are depleting in number for several reasons.
Urbanization is taking former woodlands and
farmlands out of the vegetation production and
turned these acres into lawns, shopping centers
and paved parking lots. This removes the
blooming flowers, weeds and grasses and
makes it useless to the bee, who moves on.
Pesticides used on crops destroy many
bees and herbicides used on road shoulders,
woodlands and crop fields kill off many of the
species of vegetation used by the bee for
manufacturing honey, which he needs to
While the control over insect and unwanted
plant life is necessary for us to produce enough
food, the bee is needed, too, to pollinate what
we want to produce as well as what we don't
want to produce.
I didn't realize bees were so important
until I read this article. So, don't swat the next
one that stings you. We need him.
be necessarily complex for
there must be a careful bal-
ancing of environmental con-
cerns and property rights.
Legislation is needed to
eliminate the kind of dis-
agreement going on within
the Cabinet. Agriculture
Commissioner Doyle Conner
says the State should pay for
any rights taken away from
property owners. Atty. Gen.
Robert Shevin says govern-
ment has a right to control
property use without pay-
We think fairness is more o
on the side of Commissioner
Conner, although government
clearly has established cer-
tain powers over property
through zoning laws.
Property owners should be
treated fairly by their gov-
ernment, and that is the
essential point to be consi-
dered. It is obvious that
development of certain lands
should be prohibited or care-
fully controlled to prevent
destruction of the environ-
ment. But at the same time,
the property owner should be
compensated in some man-
Perhaps the Legislature
should give consideration to
agreements between the
State and property owners in
which the owners would be
paid for agreeing not to use
their land for certain unde-
sirable purposes for a period
of years. It is an alternative
that would not require the
State to spend hundreds of
millions of dollars to buy up
land it really doesn't need
and shouldn't take 6ff the tax

tive circles which may be
just as good. It grants certain

t L The most disappointing team in
the country this year, from my
\point of view, is LSU. After getting
off to such a fine start in their
opener against Colorado, the Tigers
were picked by many, including
myself, to be one of the top teams
by season's end. Having lived in
"Tiger-town" during two football
seasons, I know the expectations of
the LSU fan, and if Tulane upsets
them this week, Coach Charles
McClendon will come in for more than just a little
abuse. If he hasn't already.
Maybe as fans we expect too much. For years
Coach Mac has produced winners consistently going to
bowls and being in the top 20. This year was supposed to
be one of his better teams. Player departures, injuries
and friction among players have probably all contri-
buted to their loses. For whatever reason, one bad, or
more appropriate, mediocre season, does not lessen his
skill, desire or dedication to winning.
LSU isn't the only team with a winning tradition
that hasn't had its usual number of wins this year and
Coach McClendon isn't the only coach who will receive
criticism for it. One can argue, that if you receive
accolades for winning, you should expect to hear from
the critics when you lose.
But I still wonder. Do we expect too much?

Sharks Take Their Flit Guns to
Chattahoochee's Jackets, 14-8
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1974
The Port St. Joe Sharks
took advantage of their first
period opportunities to score
Friday night, in taking a 14-8
victory over the Chattahoo-
chee Yellow Jackets.
The Sharks lost their pre-
vious four outings, each of
which presented several op-
portunities to score in the

Sanborn is just before rattling his teeth'.
first period which were de-
nied them for one reason or
Friday, though, the running
of Robert Farmer and John
Owens, along with a stout
defense, allowed the Sharks
to capitalize on their first
Robert Farmer took the
opening kick-off on the Shark
15 and ran back to the 46
before he was brought down.
Three plays later, the fleet-
footed Farmer scampered 49
yards up the middle to score.
Mike Todd split the uprights
for the extra point conver-
With only 1:36 left in the
first period, Farmer scored
again on a 16 yard run. The
Shark's last scoring drive
started on their own 42 and
took only eight plays before
Farmer put the ball across
the goal line. Mike Todd
again kicked the extra point
to give the Sharks a 14 point
lead, which stood up until
eight minutes into the third
period ,when the Jackets
scored on a 10 yard run by
Rickey Bryant. David Ma-
bardy ran the extra points
The Jacket drive started on
the Jacket 40 and was spark-
ed by 10 and 13 yard gallops
The Jackets had another
opportunity to score in the
second period. Starting on
their own 38, Charleston Hes-
ter plunged for 13 yards and
Rickey Bryant gained five.
On a fourth down gamble,
Port St. Joe jumped offside
and the Jackets had their
first and ten. Another offside
moved the ball another five
yards against the Sharks,
then Hester ripped off nine
yards more. Hester worked
the ball to the Shark -17,
before Ray Lawrence caught
the jacket quarterback for a
five yard loss. Onw the next
play, quarterback Jorge Ri-
ano kept the ball arid crossed
the goal line. A penalty flag
nullified the TD and the
Jackets were able to recover
only to the eight yard line
before the stout Shark de-
fense cut them off.
The Shark offense sput-
tered all through the third
period and cranked up once
again in the last stanza with
four minutes to go when
Steve Lawrence covered a
Jacket fumble on the Jacket
41. Ronald Daniels, who had
been doing a good punt re-
turn job during the evening
got the call for the running
chores and worked the ball to
the Jacket eight on two car-
ries, but fumbled and the
drive was cut off.
Robert Farmer, who has
carried most of the running
chores for the Sharks this
year added 193 yards to his
total of 1,104 for the season
The defensive work of
Steve and Ifay Lawrence,
Tony Harrison, Mark Wim-
berly, Ronald Daniels and
John Shackleford cut down
big play after big play during
the evening. A great effort by
Shackleford cut off a Jacket
scoring pass in the middle of
the last period.

Satisfied Radial Tire Drivers Have For Over a Quarter
Sometimes it takes a while for a good idea to catch on, but now,
the time of the radial tire has surely arrived. And we want to
clarify the point that Michelin pioneered the steel-belted radial
Idea. Michelin introduced the first steel-belted radial tire
back in 1948... over a quarter century ago. And today the Michelin
'X' steel-belted radial is unsurpassed for proven road perform-
ance. It's the only radial tire that has over 25 years of experience
built right in. So if you've decided that now is the time for
you to get in on the easy-handling, firm road-holding, sure
traction and smooth ride of radials, we think you should
start with the leader Michelin. -That's where it all began.

The holiday seasons are
approaching says Florida
Nurserymen and Growers
should be given to some
plants that bloom during
these periods. Two that you
might want to pick up from
your local nurserymen are
Thanksgiving and Christmas
cacti. These plants are read-
ily available and produce
blossoms with little effort.
When you purchase your
Thanksgiving and Christmas
cactus it might have buds. If
it does not, then place it in a
cool room where there are no
lights turned on at night.
These plants are light sensi-
tive and if exposed to too
much light will not produce
flowers. Light applications of
soluble fertilizer every two
weeks will keep them in fine
shape once the buds are set.
Potted mums are excellent
holiday plants. The large sin-
gle stemmed mums are typi-
cal of football games and
other festive occasions. How-
ever, the potted mums give
you a longer period of bloom
and can be set out after it
has served its purpose for the
holiday. Be warned ahead of
time that the dry air of the
house may cause your plant
to lose moisture rapidly.

NOTICE OF INTENTION TO ADOPT
RULES AND REGULATIONS
The School Board of Gulf County proposes to adopt a policy
manual for the School District of Gulf County on December 3, 1974.
A public hearing has been scheduled on December 3, 1974, 5:30
p.m., in the School Board Room, in the County Court House, Port
St. Joe, Florida, for the purpose of receiving comments from the
public on the proposed policies.
The public may review the proposed policies in the office of
the Superintendent of Schools between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and
5:00 p.m. on November 21, 22, 25, 26 and 27, and December 2, 1974.
Pridgeon said the bills will
be late due to rulings by the
State Revenue Department.
"All property in Florida must
be assessed at 'just value'
before it will be allowed, on
the tax rolls and approved by
every two weeks. You will be
surprised at how many more
blossoms you will get.
Watering should be perform-
ed accordingly. Most of the
time the potted mums will
not need fertilizer while you
Another holiday plant that
is always used is the poin-
settia. This, of course, if
highly desirable for Chr:st-
mas. If you have been for-
tunate enough to root cuttings
yourself you may be able to
use your own potted plants
Probably one of the most
overlooked plants for use in
the home is the gloxinia. It is
a member of the African
Violet family. Unfortunately,
when people purchase or re-
ceive a gloxinia and it is not
blooming they become dis-
satisfied. Here are the rea-
sons why. Remember, that a
professional grew the plant
and it had all the necessary
care. It was exposed to good
watering, good fertilization
and the proper amount of
light. Because the plant pro-
duces a multitude of blos-
soms you may move it into
your home and it fails to
. continue to bloom. The main
reason that it failed is be-
cause of low light intensity.
Keep this plant close to
strong light, give it plenty of
water, and a soluble fertilizer

RE: HEARING OFFICER'S REPORT
ON ESTABLISHING COASTAL
CONSTRUCTION SETBACK LINE
IN GULF COUNTY, FLORIDA,
PURSUANT TO SECTION 161.053,
I was appointed by the Director of
the Division of Marine Resources of the
State of Florida Department of Natural
Resources as Hearing Officer for public
.hearings for property owners in Gulf
.County, Florida, which were held in
Port St. Joe, Gulf County, on January
10, 1974, and on March 6. 1974, pursuant
to the provisions of Section 161.053,
Prior to the hearings, legal notices
were run in the Panama City News
Herald, Panama City, Florida, The
Star,- Port St. Joe. and Gulf County
Breeze, Wewahitchka on December 27,
1973,.nd J.nuary 3, 1974, and on Feb-
ruary 25. 1974, and March 4, 1974,
noticing the fact that public hearings
wouli be held pursuant to Section
161.053, Florida Statutes, for the De.
partihent acting through the Division of
Marie Resources, to establish a
coastal construction setback line along
the QuIt shoreline of Gulf County.
Information including beach profiles
and aerial photographs indicating the
proposed location of the setback line
and engineering data were placed on
exhibition at Gulf County Courthouse,
Highway 71, Port St. Joe, Florida, and
the City Hall, Osceola Street, Wewa.
The Division had a proposed coastal
construction setback line for the above
described area submitted by the Coo3-
tal and Oceanographic Engineering
Laboratory of the University of Flor-
ida's College of Engineering (herein-
after referred to as the Laboratory)
through James A. Purpura, Professor
of the Department of Civil and Coastal
At the hearings, which were well
attended, the opinions of affected pro-
perty owners and of interested persons
ram the gamut from establishing the
coastal construction setback line at the
vegetation line to immediately behind
the primary dune to having it establish-
ed as recommended by the Laboratory.
The public hearings showed that
from Ranges 1 through 30 (along the
mainland from the western boundary
east.some 30,000 feet) a dune existed
approximately 200 feet landward of the
mean high water line at an elevation of
+10 feet to +12 feet mean sea level.
From Ranges 35 through 80 (state park
property) the dunes were much higher,
ranging from +15 feet mean sea level
to +35 feet mean sea level.
Easterly from Range 81 they gener-
ally decrease in height until Range 126
where the elevation is +12 feet mean
From Range 126 to the eastern end of
the county, with minimum exception,
the elevation' was less than 10 feet
mean sea level.
It should be noted that from Ranges
110 through 120, around Cape San Bias,
the elevations were extremely low with
a longer, low profile going into the
The Laboratory's report showed that
the shore history indicates that St.
'Joseph Spit is migrating at St. Joseph
Point and at.Cape San Bias, but most
of the Gulf side of the Spit is eroding;
further, that east from the northern
end of St. Joseph Spit the mainland to
the north and west has undergone
accretion over a period of time.
The Spit, in general, has a line of
dunes facing the Gulf; however, these
dunes show severe scarp erosion. As
pointed out earlier, the topography is
very low north and east of Cape San
Bias, and the hearings further pointed
out that because of this condition,
flooding from the Gulf and Bay, would
occur as a result of a severe storm or

topping and flooding in a severe storm
The hearings and the Laboratory's
report further brought out that the
beaches of Gulf County are virtually
free of destructive development and
further brought out the fact that with
destruction Of the dune system, an
acceleration of the Spit erosion pro-
blem is imminent. Destruction of the
dunes will take away the buffer pro-
tection and sand supply that is neces-
sary during storm conditions.
The Laboratory placed a permanent
monumented baseline along the shore
froI'n the west to the east end of the
county; that monumented stations were
placed approximately 1.000 feet apart
and "were monumented in relation to
the: State Plane Coordinate System.
Profiles were taken from behind the
.dune line, where existing, to a wading
depth. This was done during the
months of July through September
An automatic tide recorder was
placed in operation at the Mexico
Beach pier and recorded during the file
field survey periods. 1
Offshore soundings from the beach to t
a depth of about 9 to 32 feet (about 3000
feet offshore) were finished during the
period of August 14.22, 1973. A total of
54 sounding lines were completed. An
offshore profile was run at every third
monument on the baseline.
The LaboraMry's report stated that
while there is little available historic
sounding data of the study area, ero-
sion rates do not always indicate the
short term fluctuations that occur on
the beach. These fluctuations can be
quite large in magnitude over a short
term as a result of certain tide-wave
conditions. A shoreline which may have
an apparent long term trend of stability
can suffer quite severe erosion with
subsequent accretion, then erosion, and
that during these cycles severe damage
The Laboratory's report showed that
tide records in this area recorded in
previous study and during the present
study by a tide recorder at Mexico
Beach peier showed that the tides are
chiefly diurnal. Tide tables of the U. S.
Coast and Geodetic Survey show the
mean diurnal tidal range at Port Saint
Joe as 1.4 feet; further, that the most
frequent wind speeds arb between 7
and 16 knots.
In the analysis recommending the

1. A still water level storm tide of 8.2
feet was used for computing wave
uprush. The storm tide level is the
vertical rise in the still water level
near the coast caused by wind stresses
on the water surface. Wave setup is the
superelevation of the water surface
over normal surge elevation due to
onshore mass transportation of the
water by wave action alone. During
Hurricane Audrey, the Laboratory esti.
mated the wave setup to 1.5 feet in the
study-area. This 1.5 feet is included In
the still water level 4torm tide of 8.2
feet. This 8.2 feet stillwater elevation
was based on a predictable storm tide
level for a 100 year period, or a storm
tide which has.a 10 per cent probability
for occurring in the next 10 years.
To compute the wave uprush, the
Laboratory used the composite slope
method for each of the profiles taken
under storm conditions and added a
wind wave of 6.0 feet in height and 12 '
second in period. This information was
computerized and the result was how
far landward the uprush would reach.

from the evidence at the public hear-
ings, and from the numerous letters
received and the land use plan, as
mentioned above, from the owner of

find that for the protection of upland
properties and.for the control of beach
erosion along the Gulf coast, It is
necessary that a setback line be esta-
blished as follows:
1. That the proposed coastal con-
struction setback line as recommended
by the Laboratory be approved with the
exception of that area between Ranges
102 and 106.
2. That the coastal construction set-
back line between Ranges 102 and 106 be
moved seaward as set forth above and
the restrictive covenants mentioned
above be filed of record.
3. That part of Gulf County lying
between Ranges 159 and the eastern
county line faces Indian Pass and,
therefore is exempt from the provisions
of Section 161.053, Florida Statutes.
4. That in recommending the setback

other things mentioned in this. report,
the measured topographic factors, dune

slopes, adjacent profiles, upland deve-
lopment and vegetation-bluff lines and
It is recommended that:
1. A coastal construction setback line
be established in Gulf County in

All power boats regardless
of motor size must be regis-

Harmon Shields, executive
director of the Department of
Natural Resources, reminded
boaters this week.
Shields said the new law
was enacted in the last ses-
sion of the legislature and
also requires boats occasion-
ally using an auxiliary motor
to be registered and titled.
To avoid last minute rush,
Shields advised boat owners
to register their boats im-
mediately with their county
tax collector. "The Depart-
ment's Bureau of Licenses
and Registratin has furnished
each tax collector office with
the appropriate registration
forms." he said.
Shields also advised boat
owners to take either their
bill of sale or the manufac-
turer's statement of origin, if
available, when they go to
the tax collector. If these
items are not available, he
said they will need a com-
plete description of their boat
and its serial number. If no
serial number is available.
Shields said one will be
assigned when the title is
