Commission Approves

Cemetery In provements

The City Commission may
not make much money ($25.00
a month) but they sure do
have a nice place in which to
meet. The Commission occu-
_pied. its newly refurbished
meeting rooms Tuesday night
for the first time.
The meeting room has had a
new podium installed for the
Commission to preside from.
Carpet has been placed on the
floor, new furniture installed
and the room completely re-
novated and redecorated.
The redecorating was done
by Bob Simon, superintendent
of the Wastewater Treatment
Plant and the work was done
by his crew of craftsmen.
The first action by the Board
in their new quarters was to
agree to cooperate with the St.
Joseph Historical Society to
install a sprinkler system at

County Accepts Tractor Bid of

$72,644 from Burford Company'

The Gulf County Commis-
sion voted Tuesday afternoon
to pay Burford Tractor Com-


Fishermen to

Talk with Rish
Gulf County's commercial
fishermen will be meeting
with Representative William
J. Rish Monday night in the
Highland View Elementary
The fishermen will discuss
needed legislation with Rish to
be considered in the coming
session of the Legislature.
The meeting will begin at
7:00 p.m., in the school cafe-

pany of Marianna, $72,644.00
for a track mounted back-hoe.
Burford was one of 10 con-
cerns entering bids on the
machine last week, but the
Commission had turned the
bids over to Road Superinten-
dent Lloyd Whitfield to ascer-
tain which bids met the speci-
fications called for.
Whitfield reported at the
meeting Tuesday that, in his
opinion, the Burford bid on a
Caterpillar machine was the
best bid offered.
Al Gunter, a representative
of Bear Equipment Company
of Panama City pointed out his
bid on a John Deere machine
was $19,644 less than the
Burford bid, but the Commis-
sion disallowed his bid be-
cause the machine was con-

siderably smaller than the one
called for in the bids.
Whitfield also recommend-
ed the county keep their
old drag-line which is being
replaced. "The trade-in price
is not enough", Whitfield said.
"We can still use the machine
for light work and it will be
worth more to us than we are
being offered in trade."
While Tuesday's session
was a recess of last Tuesday's
bid for the purpose of consi-
dering the bid, the Board was
also confronted with a group
of about 15 people who wanted
to protest a suggestion that the
Veterans' Service officer and
the Civil Defense offices be
combined with one full time
man to administer both.
The Commission made no
definite decision on the mat-

ter, since they had said they
would make up their minds at
their first meeting in January.

County Gets

$20,000 In

Disaster Aid
Gulf County has received a
check for $20,000 in disaster
funds from the Department of
Community Affairs to repair
county roads damaged by
Hurricane Eloise.
The check was sent to the
County by the state agency
after application had been
made for payment by Gulf
County Civil Defense at the
direction of the County Com-

the Old St. Joseph Cemetery.
The Historical Society
agreed to put up $1,800 in cash
toward the job immediately
and agreed to share the other
expense involved on a dollar
for dollar basis.
Wayne Childers acted as
spokesman for the Historical
Society and outlined the pro-
ject. He said the Society
wished to see an underground
sprinkler system installed,
with a deep well dug to
provide necessary water to
operate the system.
The Society presented the
Commission with a set of
plans for the project.
Estimated cost for the over-
all job is expected to run about
The Commission agreed to
accept the Historical Society's
offer if a reasonable price
could be obtained to do the
work. The Commission agreed
to call for bids on the project
to get a definite cost before
giving their final approval of
the request,
At their last meeting, the
Board considered Commis-
sioner Roberts' suggestion for
a more realistic charge for*
delinquent water customers
and arrive at-a definite policy
for curtailing water service to
those who do not pay their bills
on time.
An ordinance was intro-
duced Tuesday night which
would make all bills delin-
quent and subject to a $1.00
late charge after the 10th of
the month. If the bill was still
unpaid by the 20th the service
would be cut off and a $5.00
charge levied for turning the
water back on.
The new ordinance will go
into effect with the February
1976 billing.
Roberts said the new plan
would cut down on the chronic
large number of late bills the
City office must handle each

The Port St. Joe Quarter-
back Club cornered the Gulf
County School Board Tuesday
evening and brought to their
attention the deplorable atten-
tion of the baseball stadium
and needs for maintenance at
the football stadium.
After an on-sight inspection
of the facilities, Bob Moore,
acting as spokesman for the
Quarterback Club outlined the
club members' feelings on the
.Moore said, "You have to
admit, the facilities are in
poor shape. There are4eaks in
the gyms, problems at the
football stadium and playing
field. The worst example is the
baseball stadium. It is an
eyesore and potential liabil-
ity to the school board."
Moore said the Quarterback
Club was recommending the
baseball field have a new roof
put on the bleacher section
with repairs made to the
seating, fencing and lighting.
He estimated the repairs
would cost in the neighbor-
hood of $14,000.
Moore went on to explain
that the advantages which
would result would naturally
be a better baseball program,
allow more support of the
team by the community by
allowing night games to be
played, thus increasing the.
income from the sport. "It
would also make the facility
available for year-round use',,
Moore said.
School Board member Fred
Greer asked for priorities on
the work requested as the
School Board did not have the
money to make the requested
repairs at this time.
Moore replied that of course
safety measures had priority
but that all requests were just
as important as the other.
Board member Gene Raf-
field said he favored placing
the baseball stadium in first-
class condition and also mak-
ing necessary repairs to the
rest rooms at the football
stadium. He went on to say he
favored borrowing the money
to pay for the work and repay
it over a period of time. "This
will enable us to get the
facilities usable and allow us

to enjoy the games while
providing our children a safe
and adequate place for year-
round recreation.
Quarterback Club president
Raymond Lawrence said he
felt it wasn't the responsibility

of the club to maintain the
facilities. "The club has built
the field, lighted it and con-
structed the teachers. "Our
purpose has been to purchase
those items the School Board

Entire County Sclhool System VNow Meets Criteria

Accreditation Approved for All Gulf County Elementary Schools

The Gulf County School
Board has received official
notification that the three ele-
mentary schools, Port St. Joe
Elementary School, Highland
View Elementary, and Wewa-
hitchka Elementary School,
are now fully accredited with
the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools. This is a

regional educational agency
which accredits public and
private schools in 11 southern

The attainment of accredi-
tation status certifies that the
institution has met the policies
and standards established by
the Commission of Elemen-

tary Schools of the Associa-
The official action concern-
ing the Gulf County schools
was taken during the 80th
annual meeting of the Asso-
ciation during the week of
December 7, in Atlanta, Ga.
The Gulf County schools

were further recognized by a
request from the Association
to make available their writ-
ten program as models to be
used throughout the area as
they were one of the first sys-
tems to use the new criteria
now the official standards for
the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools. This

written program was a result
of a two-year study by the
schools' administration, facul-
ty, students and parents with
an outline of the present
program and a plan for an
improved school.

In receiving this informa-

tion, Superintendent Bidwell
stated, "This is one of the long
range goals as defined in the
school l board policy that we
have been striving for in Gulf
County. We believe this pro-
gram will provide improved
educational programs for all
our youth. This is the first

time all schools in Gulf County
have been completely ac-
credited by a nationally
recognized educational agen-
cy. I know the people join the

say that all of Gulf County
schools have been fully ac-

The.Sharks Are

."State Champs" To Us

The season ended abruptly here
Friday night, after a prolonged stay

zens. The abrupt ending meant the
Sharks would not go to the state
play-off finals this year.
We can't be too disappointed
over the fact. The Sharks had a fine

better football games they have ever

The team went farther and had a
bIetter season than most of their

Sdid it by sheer determination, which
,.is- one of the valuable lessons a

We're proud of the Sharks. They.
:climbed from the unranked the last
quarter of the season to the third
'best football team in the state-so
sfar as the records go.
.. Unofficially, and in our opi-
nion, the Sharks deserve to be
the state champions, based on
their ability to use their talents
-and play together as a team.

With no stars on the team, save
possibly Robert Farmer and his
running, the Sharks definitely
were the best team in the semi-
finals here Friday night. They
were just banged up too bad
from the regular season to com-
pete with a team which had
In our opinion the Sharks show-
ed their championship caliber by
putting up the fight they did Friday
night. They were hurt. Farmer
couldn't run even as much as he did
in Chipley; Etheridge couldn't block
for him; Owens was in pain; Daniels
was hurting bad by the middle of the
third quarter. That's the ball movers
out of action. But they didn't quit.
They didn't go sit down and beg off.
They still tridd as hard as they
could. -
It isn't everybody, these days,
who will go ahead and shoulder their
responsibility when they don't par-
ticularly feel like it. The thing to do
these days is to go plead "sick" and
take advantage of your benefits.
We congratulate the Sharks ,on
learning to keep on trying even after
others would .quit. That's the sign of
a champion.

Doctors Deserve Thanks
I p

The people of Port St. Joe and
Gulf County owe our local doctors a
vote of appreciation.
: The county faced the loss of
emergency room service at the
IMunicipal Hospital, but the doctors
figured out a plan where the service
can still be offered to treat emer-
gencies here at home.
All of you have read of the
.unrealistic charges being made for
malpractice insurance these days.
In: the case of how it would affect '
Port St. Joe citizens, the emergency
room situation was a prime exam-
ple. The City was being faced with
hiring doctors to staff the emergen-
cy:room at a minimum of $40,000 per
year for each doctor, and furnish
them malpractice insurance, or
ejose down the emergency room.
: In the past, local physicians
have staffed the emergency room,
but their new malpractice insurance
rates make it mandatory that they
quit, since the portion of their policy
ivtiich covered them in offering
emergency room treatment was just
riore than they could stand finan-
The problem is that there is not
enough emergency room business to

After months of corresponding
with insurance companies and num-
erous conferences, the doctors have

service to continue.

emergency room by local citizens

extreme lengths to ,provide it. They
felt it was their civic duty to try to

We feel they are due a vote of

Contact With The

Outside World


Whether farmers or not, al-
most everyone in town sub-
scribed to a farm paper that
was called the Southern
Ruralist. The paper was one of
our few contacts with the out-
side world in purchasing
things that we thought would
make our lives better.
Coon and fox hunters would
order new breeds of dogs. One
fellow, in a kind of status sym-
bol act, ordered a monkey.
(The date of the monkey's ar-
rival was a big day in town
and we all went down to the
express office to meet the
monkey, but on arrival it was
dead.) We could always- tell

one had ordered a sack of

everlasting pursuit of curing
Subscriptions to the paper
were sold by a man wearing a
silk striped shirt with the shirt
pocket jammed with penny
pencils. Just standing on Main
Street, he was able to contact
everyone in town because we
all had pride in our town and
loved to walk and visit around
with each other on the street
and in the stores on Saturdays.

Florida Opposition

The Jackson County Com-
missioners last Tuesday en-

A Ford In Our Future?
I see by the papers where former California
Governor and movie actor Ronald Reagan is off
and running for the Republican nomination for
the presidency.
Reagan seems to be getting plenty of
encouragement to try his hand at earning the
seat in the White House. He appeals to a lot of
people with his conservative views. -1 think Mr.
Reagan will fall just a mite short of his goal, if
President Gerald Ford continues to come up with
a timely veto of the babblings of Congress every
once in a while.
The Democratic controlled Congress seems
to have gone wild in their obsession at unseating
the Republican occupant of the White House.
The papers are full of investigation after
investigation, aimed primarily at embarrassing
the Republican head of state more so than trying
to reach any truth or change which might make
right any. wrong which might have been
It's no secret that any government agency
with the power of the FBI or the CIA usurps their
power once in a while. A prime example is the
Internal Revenue Service which exercises
powers at time comparable with those found only
in a police state. Let the IRS suspect you are
guilty of income tax infractions and you must
prove. you are innocent, rather than the IRS
having to prove you are guilty.
It is prudent that we point out here that
most of the Florida delegation to Congress has
backed the Republican president's position
in demanding spending cuts commensurate
with any tax cuts which might be offered to
the people next year. Congressmen Bafalis,
Bennett, Chappell, Frey, Fuqua, Gibbons, Ha-
ley, Kelly, Rogers, Sikes and Young back the
President in his contention that a spending
ceiling should be placed on next year's bud-
get. Congressmen Fascell, Lehman and Pep-
per feel no budget ceiling is necessary.
Personally, I feel the Democratic Congress
is demanding an open-ended budget simply
'because a Republican president wants to impose
a ceiling. If the Republican president wanted an
open-end budget, I feel the Democratic Congress
would demand a ceiling.

We had a straw ballot of presidential
preference at the Rotary Club meeting last
Thursday. Program chairman George Tapper
posed the question: "If the presidential election
were to be held tomorrow, who would you vote

Tapper gave each member present an
opportunity to answer and all but one gave him
an answer.
It was interesting to note that every member
of the club preferred a Republican candidate.
There was only one registered Republican in the
meeting that day. The remainder were register-
ed Democrats.
Of the votes cast, 10 voted for President Ford
and eight cast their votes for Ronald Reagan.,
Tapper conducted a similar poll some eight
months ago, and the majority cast their
preference for Governor George Wallace of
Alabama. Thursday, even though Wallace is one
of the myriad of Democratic candidates, he did
not gain one vote of preference.

To be sure, the members of the Rotary club
do not represent the majority of voting Gulf
County. Based on the manner in which national
polls are conducted, however, the sampling of
preferences by Tapper gives as good an
indication as the national polls. As a matter of
fact, the percentage of those asked as against the
total population of the county was not as low in
Tapper's poll as it is in the national polls.

If more local organizations would make
similar polls from the man in the street, the
small businessman, the blue collar worker, the
tax payer; and the results made public; I feel we
could make some changes in the Democratic
If the people who are in power under the
Democratic flag could see they no longer have'
the confidence of the person who places the
ballot in the box, we may see some changes
made in our nation for the better.
Who knows, we may even see a cap placed on
the national budget, or, more remotely, we may
even see a balanced national budget.
One of the things we would surely see is the
public's chagrin at the hypocritic actions of
Congress in demanding that the City of New
York put it's financial house in order and all the
while plunging the nation along the same path as
that followed by New York.

'Tis the Season to be Stealing.

0 0

"I. only did it because the
other kids dared me to."
"The store can afford it."
"Nobody told me it .was
against the law."
These were the excuses
given last year by more than
35,000 criminals (Florida De-
partment of Criminal Law
Enforcement 1974 Annual Re-
port) when asked why they
had broken the law. They were
not the hardened crime prone
hoodlums so common to tele-
vision shows, but they now
Have a criminal record.
These criminals were usu-
ally teenage girls, housewives
who were stretching the bud-
get and elderly people strug-
gling to make a living on a
fixed income. Most had spot-
less criminal records but they
made the mistake of stealing
from a retail establishment
and now they will always be
known as ... .a shoplifter.
With the Christmas buying
season in full swing, the pro-
blem becomes all too apparent
to merchants. Florida Retail
Federation estimates that 65.
percent of a merchant's year-
ly theft losses will occur be-
tween October 1 and January
1. Although violent crime gets
the headlines, retail theft is
more costly to merchants and
consumers. In 1974 all crimes
against business, including
armed robber and business
burglary, accounted for only
148 million dollars worth of
losses, compared to retail
theft losses of 253 million dol-
Law enforcement officials
discount the old heart rending
theory that Christmas brings
shoplifters into stores to steal
presents they cannot afford.
Most shoplifters steal during
Christmas because of the
large crowds, inexperienced
part-time Christmas em-
ployees and the large volume
of goods flowing onto the
shelves. The average theft is
worth 28 dollars and most
shoplifters have more than
enough money to pay for the
stolen items.

Arrest figures show the
average offender in Florida is
white and young. Fifty-three
(53) percent of those arrested
are under 18 years of age.
Most are female from middle
class families. Housewives ac-
count for the second largest
arrested group and the elderly
are rapidly becoming a major
third class.
While the professional shop-
lifter is a problem, it is esti-
mated that he only makes up
10 percent of all shoplifters.
The professionals concentrate
on items they can quickly re-
sell such as televisions and
appliances, while the amateur
frequently steals items for his
own personal use such as
records, food, watches, etc.
Although merchants spent
over four billion dollars
nationwide last year on secur-
ity measures such as concave
mirrors, cameras, plain-
clothes detectives, the most
effective crime deterrent re-
mains stringent enforcement
of the law and prosecution of
shoplifters. Once "the word"
circulates that a store is hard
line on thieves, shoplifters
tend to stay away rather than
risk apprehension.
The Governor's Crime Pre-
vention Committee (Help Stop
Crime!) is helping the state's
police and sheriff depart-
ments combat the problem by
distributing shoplifting films,
a merchant's guide to shop-
lifting techniques using a slide
show, placards proclaiming
arrest for stealing and a series
of print ads to newspapers
that urge merchants to prose-
cute. A contest has also been
established with the Florida
Retail Federation that urges
audio and visual media to
submit scripts for the most
creative message against
Florida's shoplifting sta-
tute, 811.022, was recently
amended to give merchants
more legal rights in stopping
suspected thieves. The law al-
lows a merchant to detain
either on or off the premises
without a warrant any person
that he has "reasonable
cause" to believe is stealing.
"Probable cause" is the most
important element of a court
case, because it protects the
merchant from false arrest
and is the motivation for ar-
rest within the store.
If a merchant notices that
an item is missing from a
display immediately after a
customer left that area, he
may detain the customer even
though he may not actually
witness the theft. However, a
merchant cannot take the
word of a customer that some-
one stole something, as this
would be "hearsay evidence"
and is not admissible in court.
A customer may warn a clerk
and the clerk can then observe
the suspected shoplifter and
look for any movements or
evidence of stealing.
Merchants who observe a
shoplifter and successfully de-
tain him, should follow several
procedures. First of all, get
the suspect to a private part of
the store with another clerk as
witness (if the shoplifter is
female, be sure the clerk is
female). This will eliminate
any later charges by the
suspect that, you subjected
him to "public embarrass-

you can think of, including
time, description of the sus-

By Joe St. Clair
We read a bit of good,
sound logic the other day.
Someone had simply writ-
ten these words: "A
smooth sea never makes
a skillful mariner."'
There is much truth in
this statement. A sailor
becomes skilled only as
he guides his ship through
raging seas and stormy
voyages. Anyone can plot
a course through a calm-
but only the best can face
a storm, weather it-and
bring the ship safely to
It is through the storms
of experience that the
mariner becomes skillful.
Isn't that true with life?
The hard and difficult
days tend to make each of
us a better person-better
fitted for life.
Everyone's life will be
filled with many calm
voyages, but there are
sure to be storms and
gales, because they are
part of life, too.
REMEMBER: Life is a

Dear Sirs:
We have examined the Revende Sharing Funds State-
ment of Revenue, Expenditures and Balance and the
Statement of Expenditures Incurred of the City of Port St.
Joe, Florida (City) for the year ended September 30, 1975 and
have compared the financial data for theyear ended Septem-
ber 30, 1972, as reported to the Bureau of Census, with audited
records of the City (Schedule A). Our examination was made
in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards
and the Audit Guide and Standards for the Audit of Revenue
Sharing Recipients (Guide) issued by the Office of Revenue
Sharing, U. S. Department of the Treasury and, accordingly,
included such tests of the accounting. records and such other
auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the
circumstances. .
-in our opinion, the accompanying Statement of Revenue,'
Expenditures and Balance and the Statement of Expendi-
tures Incurred present fairly the revenue, expenditures, and
status of revenue sharing funds of the City for the year ended
September 30, 1975, in conformity with generally accepted
accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that
of the preceding year. Further, except as shown in Schedule
A, and the possible effect of these differences on the en-
titlements received; financial data as reported to the Bureau
of Census for the year ended September 30, 1972 are in
agreement with audited records of the' City.
As part of our examination, we made a study of
compliance matters as prescribed in Section V. D. of the
'Guide for the year ended September 30, 1975. Our study of
compliance disclosed no conditions which we consider
matters of non-compliance.

Sharks Bounced Out of Play-offs

A football season which
started with expectations of
having a fair or good record
ended here Friday night, with
the Sharks making an unex-
pected serious run at the state
2A crown..
A proud Shark team limped
onto the field Friday in the
state semi-finals, then limped
off again after 48 minutes of
play ,with their dreams of
glory smashed, 20-0 by a
Hamilton County team which
-.he Sharks could have beaten
on any day of its regular
season. The Sharks were still
a proud team.
The Sharks started the sea-
tson with no depth at all and in.

the end, it was the lack of
depth which kept them home
this week end. Injuries, which
started with John Owens in-
jury in the DeFuniak game
kept plaguing the Sharks until
the last half of the game here
Friday night, when the Sharks
ran out of running backs and
couldn't move. "You just don't
pick up anyone and send them
in to run in a championship
football game", Coach Wayne
Taylor said. "There is more to
running the football than
meets the eye."

many of the team's members

the flu and running back

Robert Farmer out of the
line-up with a bad ankle and
fullback Mike Etheridge side-
lined with a broken collar
bone, the Sharks just couldn't
put their offensive punch to-
gether. The punch has been
considerable during their
games this year.
The Sharks gave up the only
three turn-overs in the game
and Hamilton County scored
on all three. An intercepted
pass, a bad snap of the ball
from center on a punt and a
fumble all resulted in Trojan
touchdowns. A fan said the
Sharks beat themselves, but
any team which beat the
Sharks this year could say
they had a hand in it.
Another fan saw the bright
side by remarking, "I'm not
disappointed. This team has
played exciting football this
year and went farther than I,
thought they would."
The Trojans scored more
points on the Sharks than any
other team has this year in a-
single game. As a matter of
fact, the Sharks gave up only
39 points during the entire
regular season and 22 in the
play-off games prior to Fri-
day. It was only the second
game this year in which the
Sharks failed to score. In the
other game, against Monti-
cello, the Sharks won 1-0 in
While' the Sharks has fea-
tured the finest, defensive
outfit in this part of the
country this season, it was,
ironically, another team's de-
fense which defeated them,
Friday night.
For the first half, 11 minutes
and 35 seconds of the third
quarter, it looked as if Fri-
day's semi-final game would
go the overtime route.
Then the roof fell in.
Quarterback John Owens
was hit as he passed on first
down from his own 31 yard line
with 25 seconds left in the third
period. Stan McLeod inter-
cepted the floundering pass at
his shoe tops and scored for
the Trojans. Quarterback Ken
Anderson passed to'McClddd
in the right corner of the end
zone for the two extra points.
Three plays into the last
period, the Sharks were hav-
ing to punt from deep in their
own territory on their own 27
yard line. The snap from
center .sailed over punter
Rick Hatcher's head and bob-
bled into the end zone where it

was covered by the Trojan's
Leroy Raiford for the touch-
down. The extra point kick
was no good and the Sharks
were behind, 14-0.
In the last third of the final
period, the Sharks began put-
ting together a shaky drive,
sparked by a 28 yard pass
from Steve Owens to Sandy
Sanborn, then suddenly the
ball squirted loose from Ow-
ens on the hand-off and Calvin
Paul scooped it up and ran for
a third Trojan TD. The extra
point kick was no good.
The Sharks had their oppor-
tunity back in the second
period, when a bad punt from -
the Trojans put the Sharks in
possession of the ball on the
Trojan 23. Ronald Daniels was
still able to run at this time
and moved the ball to the
Trojan six yard line, where on
second and five, the Sharks
drew a delay of game penalty
and that was it. On second and
ten, Sanborn was thrown for a
two yard loss. On third and 13,
Daniells ran for four. On the
final down, Fred Claridy in-
tercepted Sanborn's pass on
the four yard line.
If this scoring opportunity
had materialized, there is a
good chance the score would
have ended up 7-0 in favor of
the Sharks.
Ronald Daniels, the Sharks
spot break-away runner,
wasn't accustomed to the
carrying every play role he
had to assume Friday night.
By the middle of the third
period he had gone about as
. far as he could go and farther
than most would be expected
to go. By half time he had
gained 94 yards, but in the
second half he could limp for
only 20 more.
The stout Shark defense
held Hamilton to only 93 yards
gained for the game in one of
their more stellar perform-
ances. The stout defense was
led by Marcus Manning with
six tackles and three assists,
Chester Fennell with five tack-
les and four assists, Steve
Cloud and Ray Lawrence with
four and four each and Pres-
ton Gant with three tackles
and one assist.

MK Ranch Told to Change Drainage

M & K Ranches will have to
revise its application for a
permit to discharge treated
process water and contami-
nated rain water run-off from
cattle raising and cash crops
in to the Apalachicola River

chairman of the U. S. Environ-
mental, Protection Agency
Traina took that stand fol-
lowing a public hearing last
Wednesday. Public interest

was sparked from 100 people
from.Gulf, Wakulla, Franklin
and Leon counties.
Numerous objections were
raised to the issuance of the
permit to the M &'K Ranches

School Board members Wal-

field and chairman Herman
Ard echoes Raffield's senti-
ments and chairman Ard ask-
ed Superintendent David Bid-
well if the Board could legally
borrow the money for the
needed repairs.
Bidwell said it may not be
necessary to borrow. "We
have some capital outlay mo-
ney from the state which may
be left over from the Wewa-
hitchka gymnasium and Port
St. Joe vocation additions."
Raffield interrupted him "to
say, "Let's not kid ourselves.
The Wewa gym will cost
around $500,000 and the voca-
tional classrooms will cost
around $181,000. We won't
have any money left."
Bidwell insisted the bids
may be less than this and
some money may be left.
"However", he said, "In view
of the fact that these repairs
need to be made now, we could
request permission to borrow
and repay it with capital
outlay money if there is any
The Board then instructed
Bidwell to contact the State
Department of Education for
permission to borrow money
for the repairs and use capital
outlay money to repay the
loan. Bidwell said he .would
take care of the matter the
next day.I
In the meantime, a commit-
tee composed of School Board
members Wallace Guillot and
Fred Greer along with Quar-
terback Club members Walter
Wilder, Cliff Sanborn, Ollie
Stutzman, David Stoutamire
and Paul Ramsey will conduct
a survey' and arrive at an
estimated cost for the repairs

raising cattle and crops.
The various agencies that
advised the EPA and favored
issuing the permit suggested
that the permit would be a
means of regulating the dis-
charge. None of them agreed
that the discharge was harm-
Thomas S. Talley stated on
behalf of Regional Director
Kenneth E. Black of the U. S.
Fish and Wildlife Service,
"Clearing and draining
swamps and marshes has
eliminated significant areas of
valuable habitat. High vol-
ume, turbid discharges from
drainage pumps have caused
siltation and erosion resulting
in significant degration of
aquatic resources in receiv-
ing waters. Discharged con-
taminants from agricultural

operations jeopardize aquatic
resources of receiving waters,
and especially threaten the
economically valuable popu-
lations of Apalachicola Bay.
We believe that issuance of
the discharge permit could
facilitate the conservation of
the area's resources and
should therefore be issued by
the Environmental Protection
Agency provided that the
drainage of ecologically val-
uable wetlands which were
historically inundated on a
regular basis by riverine
water are excluded from the
project plans and the dis-
charges are carefully regu-
lated to maintain acceptable
levels of suspended solids,
coliform bacteria, nutrient
loads, pesticides and flow

The service believes that, inr
addition to issuance of the
permit, all Federal and State
agencies should make a re-
newed concerted effort to re-
solve remaining legal ques-
tions where valuable wetlands
may be involved.
Jerry Gerde, a Panama City
attorney, personally speaking
and representing Bay County
Save Our Shores, stated his
objection to the issuance of the
permit. To grant this permit
would reward misconduct. "In
short, to grant this application
would be an invitation to every
developer and every land
speculator to dike and drain
the wetlands of America until
caught, and then to apply to
E.P.A. for a permit."
Gerde stressed the vital

Phase of Bird

s Now Open

sportsmen that the second
phase of two migratory bird
seasons re-open this week.
Duck season will re-open at
noon, ,Wednesday, December
17. The third and final phase of
dove season will commence at
noon Saturday, Dec. 20.
Major T. L. Garrison, Re-
gional Manager for the Com-
mission cautioned sportsmen
to be careful of the legal
shooting hours. "For exam-
ple," he said, "normal duck
shooting hours are from one-
half hour before sunrise to
sunset. In dove shooting, the
legal shooting hours are from
noon to sunset daily.
The dove season will be open
until it closes statewide at
sunset on January 12. Duck
and coot season will close at

sunset on Jan. 20.
Daily harvest limits of dove
are 12 with a possession limit
of 24 birds. The possession
limit of ducks and mergansers
is two legal daily bag limits,
except that the daily and pos-
session limit of canvasback
and redhead is one. Coots have
no assigned point value but
have a daily limit of 15 and a
possession limit of 30.
Garrison pointed out that for
the first time in some years,
sportsmen may harvest red-
head and canvasback ducks.
These are limited to specific
areas, however. The, two
species may be taken along
the Gulf Coast and in those
bays and rivermouths sea-
ward of Highway 98 bridges.

Proper Care A Can Make Christmas Plants

A Thing of Beauty for Months In Future

By: Dr. Robert Black
Ext. Urban Horticulturist
Christmas is just a few days
away and this is the time for
giving and receiving flowering
potted plants. A bright, color-
ful azalea, Christmas begonia,
chrysanthemum or. a gaily
decorated poinsettia, cycla-
men or Christmas pepper
added to the other decorations
in the home give the holiday
season a festive air.
These Christmps plants can
'be enjoyed not only during the
holidays but will remain at-
tractive far into January and
even February if properly
cared for. Care of Christmas
plants, whether a colorful cy-
clamen, a long-lasting kalan-
choe or a cheerful Christmas
begonia, is easy. Faithful at-
tention will add days and even
weeks of life to any of these
popular Christmas plants.
Temperature has an impor-
tant influence on the length of
time a flowering house plant
will remain attractive. The

Girl Scout Troop 247 of Port
St. Joe spent the past weekend

pot hangers, and learned
many new songs, games and
dances. They went on several

December 1775: A Bitter Loss
In one of the first disastrous defeats suffered
by the newly formed colonists' forces, the
combined strategies of Gen. Montgomery
and Col. Benedict Arnold failed to subdue the
British at Quebec. A harsh winter and the
ultimate death of Gen. Montgomery in battle,
forced the retreat of the remaining American
forces. Out of this defeat, Canada remained
in British control for the duration of the war.

This Bicentennial Message Sponsored by

St. Joseph Tel. & Tel. Co.

poinsettia is especially sensi-
tive to chilling, and a pro-
longed chill will cause it to
lose its leaves. The plant
should be placed in the coolest
part of the room, but not in a
cold draft. This means away
from radiators and other
sources of heat. A temper-
ature of 65 degrees at night is
satisfactory but 60 degrees is
still better for most of the
flowering potted plants. In
fact, cyclamen like a 50-
degree night temperature.
The method of watering
many times determines the
life of a plant. Many people
drown their plants by water-
ing at regular intervals, not
considering whether the plant
needs it. Plant roots need air
as well as water, and exces-
sive amounts of water do not
allow a place for air in the soil.
Overwatering literally
smothers the plant roots. Pro-
per watering calls for a little
thoughtfulness and often the
exercise of restraint. Water

should be applied in sufficient
quantities to thoroughly soak
the soil in the pot and no more
given until the soil approaches
dryness again. Plants should
be checked for dryness daily
but not watered if the soil is
still moist.
Remember that most holi-
day plants have been out of a
greenhouse a short period.
The difference between a
greenhouse environment and
a typical indoor room is
usually considerable. In the
home provide as much natural
light as possible. A dark bed-
room, hall, entrance foyer on
living room does not have op-
timum growing conditions.
Place your plants where they
receive the morning sun. Poor
light will cause leaf drop.
Although the humidity in a
house is not easily altered,
plants will do best in an area
of the house where the humid-
ity is the greatest. This is
usually in the cooking area. It
often helps if plants are set on

pebble-filled saucers with
water maintained at a level
just below the base of the pot
so that it does not touch the
By giving your Christmas
pot plants the best environ-
mental conditions of proper
temperature, adequate water,
and good light, they will fur-
nish an attractive display for a

longer time.

It's Only Your


The Bank Account Racket
Comptroller of Florida

In recent weeks we've had
a growing number of com-
plaints and inquiries about
companies offering to assist
people in laying claim to
abandoned bank accounts.
This particular scheme is
designed to extract from $15
to $19 from an individual as a
"process and research fee."
The money is requested in
a mailed solicitation, hinting
that you may be the legal
heir to an abandoned bank
account, simply because you
have the same last name as
the one on the account.
A typical letter begins like
"We are very pleased to
inform you that our research
into State records has re-
vealed that a sum of money
pertaining to an unclaimed
bank account.."
After capturing the indi-
vidual's attention, the letter
continues: "The depositor co
record bears the same ge-
neric surname as yours
(Smith, Jones, etc.). By vir-
tue of this, you may be the
owner or legal heir to this
unclaimed money."
The letters stress that it is

urgent that you respond im-
mediately, and enclose the
specified amount of money,
so that research on your case
can begin at once.
Don't fall for it.
In the first place, these
companies make their
money primarily by collect-
ing the relatively nominal
"research fees" from as
many people as possible, not
by finding heirs
Information on abandoned
bank accounts is a matter of

lieve that you might be a

count, let us know and we'll

American Armed Forces and
Their Contributions to the

The Army, Navy and
Marine Corps vans are walk-
through displays while the Air
Force van is a mini-theater.
The Army van will cover
that service's wartime role;
contributions during periods
of military government; com-
munity assistance; science,
medicine and technology; ex-
ploration; and current
achievements. Display techni-
ques used in this van include a
short filmstrip, backlit trans-
parencies, a multi-media slide
show and an electronic ques-
tion and answer board.
Exhibits in the Marine
Corps van will depict the
"Heritage of the Corps" in
five sections: Revolutionary
War, the Century of 1798 to
1898, the Marine Corps Band,
the Twentieth Century and
Marines today. Utilized in the
display are short movies,
paintings and models of
Marine Corps aircraft.
The Navy exhibit will por-
tray that service's role in
America's first 200 years with
emphasis on the Navy's con-
tributions to knowledge and
Navy-developed products and

processes which have im-
proved the life of the average
American. Included in the dis-
play are: a short-wave radio
tuned to the time signal trans-
mitted from Fort Collins, Col-
orado (approximately 1-1000th
of a second accurate), an
operational radar system and
a display demonstrating the
principles of sonar.
The Air Force, though only
28 years old, has been an es-
sential factor in military his-
tory. In its mini-theater, 15
slide projectors, five screens
anda stereo sound-system are
used to present a 17-minute,
multi-media program. Over
700 slides will be shown.
These unique exhibits are
expansible from eight to 14
feet wide to provide additional
exhibit space. Employing the
most modern audio-visual
techniques, the automated ex-
hibitry makes the displays en-
