"The Safes# Beaches In the World Are In Gulf County"

PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1972
Lawrence, Bidwell, Whitfield, Money and Guillot Win
Husband Only Survivor of Rout
Gulf County refused to follow the trend of
the Big Bend Tuesday and sent a record 71.5%
of its registered 5,799 electors to the polls in a
" larger showing than turned out in the first pri-
mary on September 12. Most of the Bend coun-
ties reported a lighter vote than recorded in the
The interest reflected in the number of vot-
ers turning out was also reflected in the close
ballot cast. Only two of six local contests were
decided when the votes were tallied Tuesday night
after the closing of the polls. The other four
could easily have been reversed with the counting
of the 265 absentee ballots counted yesterday.
The unprecedented vote also came near to
wiping the slate clean of incumbents. Only Coun-
ty Judge Sam P. Husband escaped the decision of
the voters to start over with a clean slate. One
of the purge victims was Gulf County's veteran
Sheriff Byrd E. Parker who had served in that
capacity for 38 years and was going for his tenth
term. But it wasn't to be. Political newcomer
Raymond Lawrence, running on a youth ticket,
out-distanced Parker by 188 votes, collecting 2,-
158 to 1,970 for Parker.
There was no incumbent in the Superinten-
dent of Schools contest, but considerable interest
was whipped up by the two proponents, David
Bidwell of Wewahitchka and C. Allen Scott of
Port St. Joe. Scott was enjoying nearly a 700
vote lead early in the returns, but when the We-
wahitchka and Dalkeith votes started rolling in,
it was too much for Scott's lead. Bidwell slipped
past Scott, 2,127 to -1,878.
Again F. R. (Rudy) Pippin and T. D. (Doc)
Whitfield have traded seats. Four years ago,
Pippin rooted Whitfield out of office and Tuesday,
Whitfield came storming back to regain his Coun-
ty Commission post for another four years with
a 2,060 to 1,895 victory.
Veteran Leo Kennedy, who has never had
any trouble with opponents in the past, usually
winning in the first primary, also met his Water-
loo, losing to Eldridge Money, 2,034 to 1,952.
Wallace (Pee Wee) Guillot swept over Pres-
ton Gibbs, 2,130 to 1,633. in the School Board
election in District 3.
Sam P. Husband, 'won another four year
term as County Judge-his fifth-defeating Port
St. Joe Mayor Frank Pate 2,273 to 1,644.
In the two state-wide contests on the ballot-
Supreme Court Justice and Appeals Court Judge,
Gulf went with the State winners in giving the
nod to David L. McCain for re-election over chal-
lenger Rivers Buford as Supreme Court Justice
and approved the election of Tyrie Boyer to the
Appeals Court over Donald K. Carroll.
Man Shot While
Dan Mondragon, 33 faces a
'charge of assault with a deadly
weapon to commit murder, as
the result of a scuffle aboard a
fishing boat at the Highland
View Canal early Sunday morn-
Mondragoq is presently in the
Bay County Hospital in guard-
ed condition suffering gunshot,
wounds inflicted by Deputy
Sheriff Johnny Maynor when
Mondragon resisted arrest. The
charge was filed by the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department al-
leging that Mondragon stabbed
James L. Bishop in the crest
with a knife to start the chain
of events Sunday.
Witnesses s a y Mondragon
stabbed Bishop in the chest while
he was lying in a bunk on board
the "Panormitis" owned by the
Dixie Seafood Co., of Port St.
Joe. The witnesses, Oliver Ows-
ley and Norman Murphy took
Bishop to Municipal Hospital
and called Deputy Maynor who
went to the canal docking site
to arrest Mondragon.
Maynor and the witnesses say
Mondragon was on the dock by
this time and came at Maynor
with the knife when he attempt-
ed the arrest. Maynor shot once
in warning then fired three
times at Mondragon hitting him
all three times.

Sharks Muff Chances but
Still Defeat Taylor 'Dogs
Jim Moore did his thing Fri-
day night, gaining 168 of the
,Sharks 242 yards on the ground
and scored all the points the
local team had on the score-
board as the Sharks took their
third straight victory, stopping
Taylor County 7-6.
The Sharks had at least four
other scoring opportunities dur-
ing the evening, but failed to
capitalize on them.
On. the opening kick-off Ken
Whittle took the ball on the St.
Joe 22 and went all the way
back to the Perry 28, but the
Sharks were able to advance
only to the 22 before having to
give up the ball.
With nine minutes still left
in the first period, the Sharks
were kicking again and Perry's
James Hightower fumbled the
reception on the Bulldog's 18
which was recovered by Robert
Dickens. Penalties kept the
Sharks from scoring again.
The Bulldogs took the lead in
the game with six minutes be-
fore the half when Gherry Rolle
y raced 59 yards up the sideline
for a score. Roland Simons'
kick was wide and proved to be
the difference in the game.
Danny Ethridge took the kick-
off and sped back to the Perry
47. Then Jim Moore began to
carry the ball and moved it to
the 15 before the Bulldogs dug
in and another Shark threat was
stalled within smelling distance
of the goal line.
The first time the Sharks got
their hands on the ball in the
second half, they were on their
own five yard, line. On second
down, Jim Moore found a hole
on the left side of the line and
scooted down the sideline to the
Perry eight yard line before a
shoestring tackle brought him
down. Four plays later he pushed
over from the one for the Sharks
lone touchdown, then proceeded
to kick the extra point, to give
his team the lead they never

Sharks found themselves inside
the Perry five, but were unable
to score. One scoring attempt
was thwarted by a determined
Perry defense and the other was.

Ronnie Kirkland blocked a
Perry punt and Bruce Nixon
covered it on the Perry seven
for one of the scoring opportun-
ities and the running of Jim
Moore, Ken Whittle and Robert

Bulldog two yard line with fourth
down, but the Bulldogs held.
Five players were singled out
for fine defensive efforts for
the Sharks with Terry Lovett,

Robert Dickens and Murry Smith

tackles and had three assists,

State Pollution Control Board Puts
Moratorium On Sewer Hook ups
Port St. Joe is one of six Big
Bend cities which are included
in a list of cities prepared by the
State Pollution Control Depart-
ment which will be fully or par-
tially subject to an October 1
moratorium on new sewer hook-
Other Bend cities included in
the order are Apalachicola, Car-
rabelle, Sneads, Wewahitchka
The moratorium has been de-
cared by the pollution unit be-
cause these cities and towns do
not provide 90 per cent treat-
ment of wastes.
Only municipal facilities, are
included, not small private waste
treatment plants. A department
spokesman said more communi-
ties will be added to the list
when the state completes its in-
ventory of treatment facilities.
The City of Port St. Joe was
notified two years ago it had
until January 1, 1973 to improve
its treatment facilities and cur-
rently has a $9.5 million pro-
ject underway to accomplish
just that. The Pollution Control
Board, however, has decided to
enter its moratorium before the
City Auditor and Clerk Char-
les Brock said Monday, the day
after the moratorium went into
effect, that he had received no
orders on the moratorium and
he would continue issuing per-
mits until he did.
Man Wounded In
James Bell was reported in
satisfactory condition Monday,
following a shooting about 6:00
p.m. Sunday evening.
Bell was allegedly shot by Al-
vin Chambers, who has been
charged with aggravated assault,
following an argument. Cham-
bers is now free on $1,500 bond,
which was set Monday by Coun-
ty Judge Sam P. Husband.
The shooting is still under in-
vestigation by the Gulf County
At State Park
Jerry Navoilio, 27 of Elwood
City, Pa., and a student at the
University of Miami, became the
second drowning victim of the
St. Joseph State Park Saturday
Naviolio, Miss Betsy Brooks,
also a University of Miami stu-
dent and Mr. and Mrs. Phillip
Halstead of Tallahassee arrived
at the park for a day's outing
Saturday morning and went
swimming about 11:00 a.m. The
water was extremely rough and
all four were caught by an un-
dertow very quickly.
Naviolio couldn't get to shore
and Miss Brooks just barely did
make it to safety. Naviolio's body
was found about 12:30 about a
mile from where he had gone in
The search for the body was
conducted by the Gulf County
Sheriff's office, the Marine Pa-
trol, State Park Rangers and the
Two Junior Games
Set for Tonight
Port St. Joe's junior high team

PAGE TWO THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1972
We can't help but wonder what the State Pollution
Control Department is trying to accomplish with its mor-
atorium on new sewer hookups in Port St. Joe and other
Florida cities, until they provide sewer treatment plants
capable of treating sewage to 90 percent purity.
It appears to us they are trying to accomplish one
of two things either to make the state of Florida as an-
tiseptic as a hospital operating room or either they are
trying to make the people of Florida indignant enough
with their unreasonable demands to insist on the abolish-
ment of the Pollution Control Board.
We would not like to see the Pollution Board done
away with, but we would certainly like to see it use a little
common sense in its activities. We desire the state of
Florida to be a cut above our neighbors in matters of pro-
tecting our environment, since, after all, our environment
is what we are selling to prospective visitors, residents
and industries. Florida is billed as the clean and whole-
some land and should maintain this facade. This is man-
datory even though our neighbors to the north create
much of our pollution of streams by their practice of dump-
ing sewage into streams which run into Florida.
For the State Pollution Control, Department to ar-
bitrarily get up one morning and issue a proclamation
that all new sewer hookups are prohibited (in this case,
within a week) is a bit heavy-handed. We even question
whether or not the Board has the legal authority to do
Port St. Joe has proven that no community in the
state can provide the stipulated sewage treatment facili-
ties in a year. or two years much less within a
week. The fly in the ointment is that the Department of
Pollution Control and the Environment Protective Agency
have proven to be the biggest stumbling blocks to the City
(and presumably for other cities) to comply with the rules.
Then, too, the Pollution Control Department has al-
ready given the City until January of 1973 to provide the
stipulated facilities with no action to be taken against
the City until that time. The Board has previously had
some restraint in applying their sanctions. The City has
no hopes of meeting the deadline due to meddling by the
Pollution Board. But, at least, we should be able to count
on the Board to honor its promise of over two years ago
before applying such strong sanctions.
We have no doubts but what the other cities which
felt the edict of the Pollution Control Board are having
trouble complying with the whims of the Board in their
sewer projects. They seem to want the city fathers to
collect all the sewage in a central location, then wave a
magic wand over it, making it disappear. Or the other
possible alternative, in order to please the Pollution Con-
trol Board is for the people themselves to stop making
trash and garbage by not unwrapping their beans before
they're cooked eat wrapping and all. Don't throw
away your garbage; say the magic word and make it
As we see it, the Pollution Control Board has created
more chaos than sense with their reasonable goal of clean-
ing up the environment and setting reasonable rules and
regulations by which it will be kept clean. They have
failed to enlist the support of the people in a job the peo-
ple desire and feel must be done. Failure to gain popular
support of a popular subject tends to convince us that the
Pollution Control Board has come up short in its assign-
ment. So they are hitting and hitting hard at the cities
and trying to make them look like the villian when all the
time the cities are being driven in circles by the continually
changing rules and whims of the Pollution Control Board,
in order to try and bring about the desired result of a
clean and wholesome state.
Choose Your Evil
No one will ever know how many millions of people
have needlessly deprived themselves of the benefits of a
normal, balanced diet because of that ominous-sounding
word, cholesterol. Some may have even unknowingly de-
feated their own self-imposed efforts at trying to "cut
down" on the intake of foods that may do them harm in
the battle of the bulge or the fatty deposits in the blood-
It may surprise you to learn, for example, that shrimp
is far higher in cholesterol than butter. There's 10 times
as much cholesterol in a 3.5 ounce serving of shrimp as
there is in a pat of butter. Five to eight oysters are way

cream. The contrast is just as marked in other seafoods,
such as clams and lobsters.
Such information as this causes us pain here in the
oyster and shrimp producing part of the nation, but re-
searchers say it is a fact. The only thing left to do as we
see it, is to cut back even more on our butter and cream
intake, since it's a cinch we can't cut out oysters and
shrimp. While we can't do away with cholesterol, we can
at least choose how we'll introduced that evil stuff into
our body. Eating oysters and shrimp and an occasional
lobster is about as nice a way as we know.

of one instructional unit and the
remaining 333 units will be dis-
tributed in the same ratio as
average daily attendance in
grades 1-6 to those districts em-
ploying additional qualified ele-
mentary school counselors. To
carry out this purpose the legis-
lature also funded the program
for two million eight hundred
thousand dollars. Certainly a sig-
nificant step in the right direc-
tion, and one we fervently hope
will not be misunderstood as was
the case with one state senator
reported in last week's column.
Informal guidance is as old as
education itself, but the more
formal guidance services are rel-
atively new developments. Partly
because they are new and partly
because guidance connotes to
some people the dispensing of
advice or the handing out of
ready-made solutions, these pro-
grams and services which the
school has undertaken are often
suspected or misunderstood.
The guidance movement ac-
tually began outside the schools
as an attempt to give adults as-
sistance in selecting vocations
and securing positions. The idea
had been maturing in the mind
of Frank Parsons (1854-1908) for
some years prior to the day when
he received philanthropic back-
ing to open a settlement house,
the Boston Vocation Bureau.
Although that was the first or-
ganization to dispense personal
advice on vocations, there pre-
viously had been considerable
literature addressed to people
seeking economic success. In a
broad sense guidance has always
been a basic interest of the
school, but as an organized ac-
tivity it definitely is a 20th Cen-
Guidance in colonial times was
limited to a few vocational sub-
jects. As early as 1709 a private
schoolmaster in Boston was of-
fering parctical arts, and in 1731
bookkeeping was being taught in
New York City. Toward the mid-
dle of that-century even the La-
tin schools (forerunners of the
modern high school) began to of-
fer one or two of the newer voca-
In its beginning the guidance
program was aided by another
movement that was gaining mo-
mentum at about the same time;
namely scientific measurement
of individual differences. Tests
administered to draftees of WWI

Apply Month In
Advance for Social
People getting a social security
number for the first time should
apply at least a month before they
will need it, according to David
Robinson, Social Security Field
Representative for Gulf County.
"Applications from people who
don't recall having had a social
security number before generally
are screened to make sure a second
number isn't issued to the same
person," Robinson said.
"Screening takes time, so apply
for your social security number
early and you'll have it when you
need it-when you get a joby cov-
ered by social security," he said.
A worker builds retirement, dis-
ability, and survivors protection
for himself and his family by work
and earnings credited to his 9-digit
social security number.
"Your social security number is
yours alone and remains the same
for life,", Robinson said. ,"Using
more than one number can mean
you're not getting full credit for
your work and earnings."
"When you get a job covered by
social security, you should make
sure your employer copies your
name and number correctly from
your social security card to his
records." Robinson further stated.
More than nine out of 10 jobs
are now covered or eligible to be
covered by social security.

gence required in the various oc-
cupations. They also gave some
promise of practical value in
helping to select men for special
Taken as a whole, however,
tests have generally proved more
successful in identifying voca-
tional interests than in measur-
ing aptitudes. As psychological
knowledge became more accur-
ate, better trained teachers were
developed and better instru-
ments for measuring individual
differences in intelligence, ap-
titude, personality traits and in-
terests were derived, and the
modern school ,became better
equipped to engage in a syste-
matic guidance program.
Changes in the public educa-
tional system itself argue for the
devotion of more school time to
guidence services and activities.
For example, thousands of chil-
dren come today from homes and
communities lacking in adequate
provisions for normal social de-
velopment, of opportunities to
make meaningful choices, chan-
ces to live surrounded by the
love and affection that begets a
feeling of personal security. Now
that education has become al-
most universal nearly every
child of school age continues
through elementary school at
least-the number and variety
of the problems the school has
to deal with are multiplied.
Moreover, the general public
in Gulf County expects more of
the school today, it expects the
school to help the child not only
in formal academic learning ex-
periences, but in individual, so-
cial, vocational, aesthetic and
moral development as well.

It's nice to have folks around who care for you.
It's even nicer to know they're interested enough in your
welfare to come to your ai. unsoicited like Emmett
Daniell did for me last week..
Emmett read about about my first persimmon crop
of one persimmon and immediately he went out in his yard
and plucked three large persimmons; from his tree and
brought them forthwith to the office and presented them
That was a friendly gesture by Emmett, but mostly,
'I think he wanted to brag just a little about the large
size of his persimmons.
We appreciate it Emmett both the gesture and the '-
size of your fruit.
Last week must have been "Take Care of the Editor
Week". Not only did Emmett bring us the three large
persimmons, but Bob Lange and his wife invited Frenchie
and I to his "Polynesian Ribs" whing-ding at the Motel
St. Joe. They had put on the dog! The joint was all gus-
sied up with fish nets, shells, lanterns, candles and the like,
just like all us land-lubbers think the South Seas would be
like. The ribs were also gussied up in a sauce that made
them lickin' good eatin' as Tennesse Ernie Ford says:
Bob and his kitchen staff has been serving the ser-
vice clubs, where I eat two days a week, things like stuf-
fed cabbage, stuffed peppers, broiled chicken and other
dishes we seldom see on the table. I had been accusing him
of having a Syrian cook down in the kitchen and maybe
Bob was trying to make me wonder even more what kind
of cook he had, what with his wide range of cuisine.
Italian night was supposed to have been Saturday,
and since this was written Saturday morning, I can't help
but thinking the "Italian night" will more properly cate-
gorize his cook with a name like Venturi.
I've been hearing some wild tales about the Country
Club and its golf course. One fellow brags (or com-
plains) he has been playing golf regularly ever since the
golf course opened and he has yet to complete a game with
the same ball he started with. That someone is Gene
Raffield. Joe Hendrix said he would be satisfied to finish
a game with less than a half dozen balls gone the way of
the wild goose.
When this "learning stage" is over, there'is no doubt
in my mind but what the level of the lakes will be some-
what higher than they are now, with, all the golf balls in
the bottom and the "rough" which has been serving most
golfers as fairways, will look like a hail storm had just
struck the area from all the golf balls lying about.
These duffers are good for the golf ball business,
but hard on the pocketbook of those who ought to be
spreading some of that green around town instead of
turning the vicinity of the golf course white.
The "Daily Chuckle" the other day said: "The modern
man's idea of prosperity would be having 1912 taxes,
1928 dividends, 1932 prices and 1972 salaries."
I'll buy that! But don't forget he would also like to,
recall 20 of those years he has already seen and still main-
tain the experience those 20 years bought.

Herring, Poole United In Double Ring Ceremony

emony at 6 o'clock in the eve-

ring became the bride of Mor.
ris Henry Poole. The double

The bride, given in marriage
by her father, chose a gown of
pearl white peau de soie. Inser-

dice, circling the high throat
and lifted bodice. The full

lhem. Her handkerchief-shaped

ried a cascade of white daisies.

is hoped that this information
will be of value to parents in
helping to become' better ac-
quainted with course offerings
at Port St. Joe High School. This
week's edition will highlight the
Port St. Joe High English De-
In addition to the traditional
grade level English courses, Port
St. Joe High School is again of-
fering Speech and Humanities
through its English Department.
Innovative, at the Senior high
level, this year are the Practical
English courses offered at each
grade level. Practical English is
an attempt to more closely cor-
relate the functions of the Eng-
lish Department with those of
the other departments of the
school-especially the vocational
departments. Practical English
will, hopefully, give the vocation-
al student, as well as the student
who feels certain he will not con-
tinue his formal education be-
yond high school, a more practi-
cal grasp of language, and other
communications skills he will
need to function successfully in
his chosen vocation. Practial,
English is also an attempt to
touch the interests of students
who heretofore have been disin-
terested in the traditional, Eng-
Speech is one of the elective
courses offered by the Depart-
ment of English at Port St. Joe
High School. Currently there are
17 students taking the course.
Students are given the oppor-
tunity to develop skills in oral
language by participating in ac-
tivities to improve pronunciation
and enunciation, by giving spee-
ches to inform, to persuade and
to entertain and by participat-
ing in dramatic and debate pro-
Oral drills include recording
speeches and analyzing pronun-
ciation, enunciation, pitch, tone
and inflection. Non-verbal drills
include walking, sitting, stand-
ing, facial gestures and body ges-
Much attention is given to the
development of self-confidence
and the control of stage fright.
The main purpose of the course
is to allow each student to par-
ticipate in as many speech ac-
tivities as possible so that he
will become a self-confident, ar-
Several times throughout the
year each student's entire speech
is televised and re-played on the
video tape machine to help the
student eliminate speech habits
Popular projects in which
speech students participate are
pantomimes, dramatic sk it s,
slide tapes, movies and tape es-
says. Speech students are given
as much exposure as possible to
performing or speaking before
large audiences. All speech stu-
dents are encouraged to employ
their skills in school, commun-
ity and church activities.
All students in grades 10
through 12 may select speech as
one of their elective courses.
Students in the 1972-73 speech
class are John Paul Blount, Au-
drey Croom. Gayla Davis. An-
toinette Fenn, Ed Floore, Joni
Grace, Marjorie Granger, Beth

Sarah Herring. Eva Maddox.

show that serious crimes are on
the decline in the state, but, even
so, serious crimes will be commit-

ple in the state this year. Booth
reported that the record shows

The most prevalent crime in the
state is breaking and entering.
This one avenue of crime alone
made up over one third of the to-

ported 450 murders during the

Booth said that duMig the past
six years, the Florida Bureau of
Law Enforcement has upgraded
crime fighting standards in the
state to the point where every
city and hamlet will have a train-
ed professional as its law enforce-
ment officers in a short period of
time. In addition, most of the ci-

ed together in a state-wide com-
munications system which makes
the job of the patrolman easier
and more efficient.

A Thought to
It is easy to give advice, but
taking it sometimes becomes a
different matter. When we were
children, the stern advice we re-
ceived from our parents was

We can look back now, and
for the most part-find it all
was pretty good, and over the
years it has been helpful to us.
There is ian old Russian pro-
verb, that ha' a lot of meaning,

presented. It: goes like this:
"Don't ever spit in the well-
Someday youi might get thirsty."
There is a lot of truth in that
statement. How many times do
people have to "eat" the words
they have said-or completely
reverse their attitude and ac-

children had a lot of don'tt" in
it ,and we thank our stars that
there are many things that we
don't do today, because we were
advised against it as children.
