PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MAY 27, 1976


15 Cents Per Copy


Grant, Loan Approved


Nearing Completion

Sometime next week work will be completed on the new
ambulance headquarters shown in the photo above behind
the two parked vehicles which serve the southern half of Gulf


County. The new building was built on the east side of the
Gulf County Courthouse here in Port St. Joe at a cost of
$36,108 from Revenue Sharing funds. In addition-to providing
parking stalls for the vehicles, the building also has a squad
room and facilities for the ambulance service volunteers to
conduct drills and hold classes. Star photo


The office of Congressman Bob Sikes
notified The Star by telephone Tuesday after-
noon that a loan and grant had been approved by
the Farmer's Home Administration for con-
struction of the Oak Grove Water and Sewer
system.

Congressman Sikes' office said a grant of
$123,000.00 and a loan of $136,300.00 had been
approved to construct the system. The loan will
be repayable over a period of 40 years from
revenues generated, by the system for services
provided to the residents of the community.

After nearly six years of trying to come up
with a way of financing the project, the County
Commission had just about given up when
'Earnest Pittman, area representative for Farm-
ers Home Administration, a federal agency,
approached the Board late last year and said he
felt the grant and loan could be supplied by FHA.
A hurried application was made by the County
early this Spring and the people polled as to their
desires for having the services.


County Commission Chairman Eldridge
Money said all but seven residents in the
community expressed a willingness to take the
services at the estimated costs. FHA says it will
be necessary for the County to require every
resident in the area to hook on to the system if
they are to finance it in the manner outlined.

The water for the system will be sold to the
District by the City of Port St. Joe who approved
plans Monday afternoon for construction of a
new 500,000 gallon water storage tank to be
located behind the baseball stadium, to serve
Oak Grove and south Port St. Joe. Sewage from
the community will be collected into Port St.
Joe's system for transportation to the Waste-
water Treatment plant.

The expense of putting in a water treating
system and sewage disposal system has made
the project too expensive for the residents in the
past. Only the grant portion of the financial plan
introduced by FHA put the services within the
financial reach of the people in the area.


Wants More Play Money


In what was probably a
record-setting meeting for
brevity by the County Com-
mission Tuesday night, the
Commission finished its busi-
ness in just a little over an
hour. Most County meetings
run for up to three or four
hours.
County Recreation Director,
Walter Wilder approached the
Commission asking for fund-_
ing to expand the annual
summer recreation program.,:
Wilder said he was approach-
ing each of the financial


contributors to the recreation
program, asking for a sup-
plement to their annual bud-
gets to finance an expanded
program. Wilder said he
would ask the County, School
Board, and both cities in'the
county to contribute an addi-
tional $500 each to finance the
operation.
Wilder said he was propos-
ing an expanded children's
play program in Jive areas in
the Port St. Joe vicinity and
three sites in the Wewahitchka
area. "in addition, we want to


put on an adult program this
summer", Wilder said.
Wilder pointed out to the
Commission that his depart-
ment had only $6,000 budgeted
to finance programs for the
entire year. "We have to
finagle most of our operation"
he said. "With this contribu-
tion, we can reach hundreds of
additional people and offer a
full summer of activity", he
concluded.
The Commission agreed to
the extra expenditure but
pointed outto Wilder that new


Gym Approved


state auditor requirements
would make it necessary that
they have an itemized state-
ment as to how the money was
spent.
APPROVE CHANGE
Dick Lamberson, Port St.
Joe Ambulance Squad Chief,
asked the Board to approve a
$6,000 expenditure to'put an
antenna on the Sheriff's De-
.partment tower from which to
operate a new siate-required
communications system for
the service. Lamberson' said
the installation of the antenna
would require raising the
Sheriff's antenna 80 feet, but
this would still be far less
money than putting up a new
tower.


Lamberson said the county
had enough grant money
from the state and federal
government to cover the cost
of the job.
The Sheriff had agreed to
the installation on the depart-
ment only with the stipulation
that his antenna be at the top.
Lamberson had kind words to
say about the Sheriff for
being cooperative in this mat-
ter. "In some counties such
isn't the case requiring extra
tax money to put up additional
facilities".
The new antenna will pro-
vide coverage for a new

The Gulf County School
'Board voted in special session
Friday afternoon, to accept
the low bid of Williams Con-
struction Company of Quincy
to build a new gymnasium in
Wewahitchka. When the new
schools were built in the
County six years ago, a gym-
nasium was not built in We-
wahitchka.
On the vote Friday, the
School Board acted upon the
recommendation of Superin-
tendend David Bidwell, to
spend $483,540 on the project.
Additional costs will include
around $24,177 in architects
fees. The construction will be
paid for with state funds
allocated to the county each
year for construction purposes _


only.
The Board' cut some of the
alternates out of the bid,
which would have run nearly
$550,000 if all alternates were
taken. One alternate the
Board accepted in their bid
was air conditioning for the
building. An alternate not
accepted was seating for the
gymnasium portion of the new
structure.
The county didn't quite have
.enough money in their con-
struction fund to pay for the
entire project with ease. If
something went wrong or
extra costs arose, the Board
would be in trouble. A fund set
aside for the vocational tech-
nical suite to be built here in


Library Site


Moved Again


The project is barely on the
drawing board and already
the new library building for
Port St. Joe has been moved
two times.
At the County Commission
meeting Tuesday night, Bill
Simmons, chairman of the ad
hoc library committee asked
the Commission to consider
relocating the building. Two
weeks ago, the county was
offered a piece of property,
free of charge, at the corner of
Monument Aveniie and 16th
Street by Dr. Tom Gibson, the
benefactor of the library con-
struction, for location of the
building. Gibson, owner of the
property, offered it for the
library building, free of
charge.
In his report to the Commis-
sion Tuesday night, Simmons
said the committee had heard
several objections from resi-
dents of the area to locating a
public building in the neigh-
borhood. "In view of the
objections, we feel the county
should make the previous site
on the Courthouse property
available once more. We don't
wish to cause any hard feel-


ings over 'the construction of
such a needed public build-
ing", Simmons said.
The library chairman point-
ed out that his committee had
met last Friday to discuss this
new development and were
unanimously making the rec-
ommendation.
Dr. Gibson, who is contrib-
uting to the construction costs
of the new building as a
memorial to his late wife,
Mrs. Corine Gibson, said he
had no objection to the change
in location. He stated he had
merely made the offer of the
property as a further contribu-
tion to the project.
In a unanimous vote, the
Board agreed to make avail-
able once again the property
at the corner of the Court-
house property available for
the building. The original
plans were to locate the
library on this site on a two
acre plot of ground. The site is
on the northwest corner of the
property, at the corner of
Knowles Avenue and Fifth
Street, adjacent to the canal
which runs along the west side
of the Courthouse property.


Port St. Joe next year was a
little more than matching
money was available for, so
the Board decided to use a
small portion of this money if
it is needed in the gym
construction.
While the Board was trying
to make up its mind as to what
to about the close money
situation, Board member Ken-
neth Whitfield put up a plea
for the Board to go ahead.
"This is a once in a lifetime
opportunity. I feel we should
go ahead. I have always
wanted to see a decent gym in
Wewa since the new schools
were built."
Gene Raffield then made a
motion to go ahead with the
project and the Board voted
unanimously to proceed.
APPOINT TEAM
Superintendent Bidwell pre-
sented the School Board with a
list of his recommendations
for school personnel to repre-
sent the county in the coming
bargaining session with the
teachers. He asked for their
approval and started a discus-
sion which lasted for about 45
minutes as the Board declined
to approve or disapprove Bid-
well's selection.
Board member Gene Raf-
field said, "This is the duty of
the Superintendent, according
to the Florida Statutes and we
can have nothing to say about
it if the Superintendent doesn't
wish to take our advice".
Raffield then proceeded to
lead the Board in balking at
giving their approval in any
action where they could not
change the situation. "If it's a
bad move, let the one respon-
sible for making it live with
it", he said. "If the move is
good, the one responsible
should also get the glory".
For the record, the Board
did not disapprove of Bid-
well's selection, but they stood
fast in their position that they
would not approve anything
they could not change by law.
Bidwell did not make his
choice of a bargaining com-
mittee public because he had
not contacted everyone on the
list to get their approval to
serve.

Is That A Sewer Station?
Is that a sewage lift station? It doesn't look like a sewage
lift station. After about six months of having the corner of
Long Avenue and 16th Street torn up with construction of a


new sewage collection and lift station, the results were this
attractive building which covers the top of the facility. Most
of the station is buried in the ground. The station is the main
pumping operation for the sewage operation in the entire
southern half of the city. Star photo


from the Centennial Building.
The first game will pit Cal-
vin's Equipment against Po-
Boys Friday night at 7:00.
Saturday's games will begin
at 12:00 noon, and the first
game Sunday will be at noon.
The tournament will be double
elimination, with a winners'
bracket and a losers' bracket.
A special events program
featuring a home run derby
and timed base runs will be
conducted Saturday from 1:15
to 2:00 p.m. Prizes will be
awarded to the top two win-
ners in each event.
Last year, Cook's Grocery
of Milligan went undefeated to
win the first place trophy;
with Jeffcoat's of Dothan, Ala.
the first runner-up, and Raf-
'field's Fisheries taking the
third place trophy.

For Adequate Funding


Governor Reubin Askew has
threatened to veto the state budget
unless adequate funding is pro-
vided for the state's schools. By now,
he may have already struck his veto.
Askew claims the Senate version of
the budget doesn't adequately fund
the educational system. He says the
House version, $50 million more than
the Senate's, would just barely do so.
From what we read, the Senate
version would give local school
systems about one per cent more
money than they received last year.
In the case of Gulf County, this
would not be enough.
Sitting in a School Board meet-
ing last Friday afternoon, we saw
the beginning doodles of a new
budget for the *School Board. Last
year's state funds were so drastic-
ally low that the financial crunch
was felt all year. Our teachers
received no increase in pay in a

period of prices bounding up and up
out of reason. The school financial
officer predicts that only $20,000 will
be carried over to the next year's
budget. That $20,000 figure left out of
a $3 million plus budget, isn't much.
That's cutting it pretty close.
We subscribe to the theory that
the schools and every government
agency should have to watch pennies
every year: We also subscribe to the
fact that those working for the
system should be adequately paid.
No increase in salaries last year,
with its rate of inflation, isn't
adequate pay.
We would like to see two things
happen this year: we would like to
see an adequate school budget come
out of the Legislature and we would
like to see the School Board and the
County use in comingg years, the
lesson they learned this past year
with limited funds; that is, to be
frugal in spending.

Northwest Florida Has Plenty of.



Good, Fresh Water Presently


By BETTY LYNN SPRINKLE
Northwest Florida -"
Water Management District
The insidious thing about a
myth is that it persists long
after knowledge of its fallacy
has been demonstrated. A
myth becomes so intertwined
with our values, our guiding
principles, our ways of think-
ing and of doing, that know-
ledge of its fallacy is not alone
sufficient to correct bad prac-
tices generated by the myth.
In most cases, such knowledge
will not result in a significant
alteration in the deep-seated
attitudes from which our ac-
tions spring. Intellectual con-
victions are likely to give way
to myth-based attitudes when
the chips are down.
Since our concern is with
American myths, we face still
another handicap when we
attempt to break through the
myth of inexhaustible,-re-
sources. The handicap is that
we are warning of an impend-
ing event which, in our exper-
ience, has never happened.
The public mind is inclined to
assume that a thing which has
never happened, will never
happen; therefore, it is -in-
clined not to recognize a pro-
blem as it emerges but tends
to wait until the problem is an
emergency.
Consider the problem of
overpopulation. We have
never been over-populated,
and despite the fact that areas
of the world have been and
presently are, we seem to go
along on the theory that "it
can't happen here."
Thinking is hard work, so
most of us tend to quote rather
than think. Probably for this
reason, we tend to over-em-
phasize the importance of
what someone said a long time
ago. Ideally, we should dis-
card these old theories, philo-
sophies, and values when they
are no longer consistent with
newly discovered truths.
Every generation faces new
discoveries, new trutlis aid
new problems. The is'" no
better time than right now to
recognize and abandon, the
myth of inexhaustible re-
sources.
Until 150 years ago, our
people occupied only a narrow
fringe along the eastern sea-
board of the U. S. In this
relatively short time, the
country has undergone a vast
transformation. The virgin
forest has fallen before, the
axes-of those in need of agri-
cultural land. Plantations
were mined rather than farm-
ed, and, as soil fertility -was
exhausted, the planners
moved farther into the inter-
ior. Timber was burned as an
economical method of remov-
ing it as an encumbrance.
The concept of conservation
and the idea that there was
need for concern about. re-
sources which were so patent-
ly plentiful did not come into
being until the twentieth cen-
tury. By that time, the myth of
inexhaustible resources had
become firmly fixed in the
attitudes of people. People
who talked about saving \the
trees, or the birds, or the Soil,
or the buffalo were lumped
together into the category of
"nuts." Even the conserva-
tionist talked more about con-
servation for esthetic value
than from economic concern.
So deep-seated were these at-
tidues of resources in excess,
that conservationists thought
the need to conserve applied to
others, not to themselves. Ar-
dent game conservationists
have been caught in game vio-
lations, and water conserva-
tionists have had leaking fau-
cets.
In Northwest Florida, we
have historically had an over-
abundance of fresh water.
This is a prime example of a
resource in excess. The people
of the District have always
viewed water as our ancestors
did the virgin forest, the fer-
tile soil, and the buffalo herds.
The myth of inexhaustible


ment regarding award of the
new grant necessitated the
survey.
Again, I would like to ex-
press my thanks for the co-
operation displayed by the
officials and business inter-
ests in Port St. Joe regarding
these attempts to return some
of our federal tax ddolars to
our local communities.
Sincerely,
Julian Webb
Pubic Affairs Officer


water resources must be ex-
posed and the people of North-
west Florida must become
aware of existing .and poten-
tial water problems. Unlike
our neighbors in central and
south Florida, we can get
ahead of our water problems.
However, to do so, we must
have strong water manage-
ment.
The Northwest Florida
Water Management District
was created by the Water Re-
sources Act of 1972. The Dis-
trict is directed by a nine-
member Governing Board ap-
pointed by the Governor and
confirmed by the Senate. The
Governing Board has been
delegated responsibilities
which include developing a


water use plan which will at-'
tain the maximum reason-
able, beneficial use of water in
the District. Implementing a
permit system for the con-
sumptive use of water, water
well Tconstruction standards,
artificial recharge, as well as
management and storage of
surface water, are also re-
sponsibilities of the Governing
Board.
In order to fulfill these re-
sponsibilities, the District
staff is engaged in a massive
data collection program. This
program includes assimila-
tion of all existing data from
local, State and federal agen-
cies; a cooperative program
with the U. S. Geological Sur-
vey for collecting ground and


surface water data throughout
the District; District staff
conducting geophysical logs of
wells and lithological .studies
of core boring samples from
wells throughout the District;
and mapping the bottoms of
the lakes, rivers and bays of
the District. In Northwest
Florida, approximately 80
percent of the surface water
which flows into our bays
comes from Alabama or Geor-
gia. The District staff is work-
ing with these neighboring
states on a joint study of our
major river systems. The
District has applied for fed-
eral funds to support this
study. In addition to these
data gathering programs, the
District staff assists local


governments or citizens of an
area where water related pro-
blems arise.
Northwest Florida will al-
ways have enough water. Our
function is to assure that this
water is not degraded beyond
an acceptable degree for our
rivers, lakes and bays to con-
tinue to be the water wonder-
land they are today. Also, we
must be certain that a sufft-
cient amount of water is avail
able where it is needed-at an
acceptable price in terms of
energy and money.

cerning the Northwest Florida
Water Management District,

I couldn't believe it!
I was looking at TV Friday night, watching a
program when the commercial came on. Before
I could go back to my reading, there was a
commercial for a low calorie dog food.
Now, even the dogs can go on a diet. I wonder
if the dog variety of a diet food is as tasteless as
the human variety? If so, the dog will surely lose
weight unless he finds enough garbage cans to
turn over. A human will force himself to eat the
blah food put out for diets, but the dog won't eat it
unless he likes it.
I pity the poor dogs. They have a hard
enough life as it is, eating left-overs, table
scraps, cold dog food or the cereal variety. Now,
they, too have been relegated to a diet food.
Man's best, friend is liable to bite man in an
embarrassing spot if that diet dog food isn't as
good as the commercial says it is.

GUM SWAMP
Andy Delaney used to gill
net for my father and Mr.
Henry Mattair. They had built
his camp boat and named it
the "Andy".. She was a beamy
boat with a roomy raised bow
with four bunks and an after
cabin where the Palmer en-
.gine was.
One fine winter day we
headed for Rock Island. Andy,
Mr. Rube Bradford (soon to
become my father-in-law),
Aaron Brown (who we picked
up in St. Marks), and Georgie
Buck Butler, who was camp
cook, comprised the crew. We
first went up Deep Creek and
then Pinhood River where we
anchored and prepared to go
deer hunting. Mr. Rube had
old Sport (who slept with him)
and Aaron was guide.
We held Sport on a leash till
we walked across Gum
Swamp and then let him go.
Not long after he opened up on
a trail and when he went into a


little head we scattered out
around it and waited. I heard a
little noise over to my right
and there stood a buck. I
aimed my Browning at his
head and pulled the trigger.
While I was cutting his throat
two more deer showed up, but
I wasn't ready and lost-them.
Aaron quickly skinned the
legs and slung him across my
shoulders and we headed
back. This was my first buck
and I resolved to carry him all
the way to the boat. The going
was easy at first but soon the
straps began to cut down in
my shoulders and I would shift
the load a little and get some
relief. The others offered to
spell me and I was tempted,
but I finally made it and the
old "Andy" was a welcome
sight.
. Aaron skinned the deer and
cut him up. He then separated
each muscle and tendon and
rubbed salt into it and we had
what was called jerked veni-
son.


A paper mill over in Perry just won a suit
which said it polluted the neighborhood to the
point where pine-tar smelling water boiled up out
of a nearby well. The case was proven in court
that the mill had done all that could be done to
stop its pollution and was a leader in ecological'
protection with its emissions.
The balance of nature has been changing
ever since nature was first invented. Species and
animals have come and gone, but they were
brought forth and killed off by nature. I
recognize that nature is delicate and is
constantly changing. I also recognize that the
pollution man puts into nature is minute
compared to what nature does. Apparently,
though, what man does is more harmful to
nature than the pollution which nature provides
herself. For this reason we must be careful to
protect the elements and flora fauna. We must
maintain the balance. A
-'f iBt if we let things go to far, man cannotlive
with iiature. I think a case in point Ais, the
alligator. Several years back, it became a law
that alligators were to be left strictly alone. They
weren't to be killed or harmed. Today, we have
alligators up to our eyeballs, after only a very
few years of intense protection. If we continue to
let the alligator increase at his own rate, how
long will it be before the critturs are a menace?
Already they are found in most every stream and
pond in town. Trips up the rivers and creeks
reveal gators as large as a man and in increasing-,
numbers.
There must be a balance there somewhere
beyond which man can exist and at the other end
where the ecology can continue to exist. I
don't think either is as critical as champions of
both sides would have us believe.
One of the victims of the ecology is nuclear
power and even water power. The dangers from
nuclear power is so small as to be non-existant.
There is a'danger, but it is one of the remotest
dangers on the face of the earth, if what we read
is fact. But that small danger keeps us dependent
upon diminishing oil supplies for power.
If we try to develop water power, the
ecologists go to harping on that delicate balance
again. We can better understand the attitude of
those who don't wish to harness water power
because of the scar the necessary dam will make
on the countryside.
I read in the Readers Digest recently where
an old mountaineer in the Ozark Mountains
observed, "How many people ever travelled 500
miles to see a kilowatt?" The mountaineer was
concerned with maintaining the beauty of his
mountains for people to see.
I say, "How many people ever drove 500.
miles to see those mountains without spending a
great deal of kilowatts?"
It takes paper, kilowatts, alligators, birds,
pellicans, fish, steel, rubber, fertilizer, insecti-
cides, oil, grass, trees, dirt, water and many?
other things to keep our people fed and clothed.
We cannot afford to sacrifice one to the expense
of the other. You can't make me believe that in
our technological age we can't come up with a
livable balance for all.
Too, if we stop thinking primarily of
removing the fattening items in diet food and put
equal time on the taste, we might come up with a
diet soft drink which was truly diet in
composition and a soft drink in taste. Stranger
things have happened.

The Kiwanis Club has come up with 200 full
length mirrors they are going to sell as a project ..
You might expect that Dr. Bob King would come
up with such an unusual project.
Ken Herring said he would take two dozen of
the mirrors. Somebody asked him what he
wanted with two dozen mirrors. ,
The only use I can see for that many
full-length mirrors is to put them up in the ceiling
of his bedroom.

responsibility must lie with
the principal, and that in view
of the conditions such as a lack
of communication between the
principal and faculty, I feel
that his failure to carry out the
explicit demands of the Board ,
.n the way of discipline would
merit my motion to have him
discharged for those actions ,
under Section 231.36 (6) if it
continues in the forthcoming
school year, I fully intend to
make such a motion unless
conditions are corrected."

History of Local Girl Scout Troop


Sally Malone was first reg-
istered as an adult Scout
-leader in October, 1956, in
'Pensacola. While she was in
APensacola, she had a Brownie
troop and was appointed Dir-
.-ctor of Day Camp.
She and her family moved to
'Port St. Joe in May, 1959. In
October of that year, she
,registered a Brownie troop
and an Intermediate Girl
Scout troop as Lone Troops out
of national headquarters.
;rhese were the first Girl Scout
troops organized in Port St.
Joe. They had a Day Camp at
the beach in the spring of 1960,
'which later turned into a rally
day to celebrate International
Friendship Day. Every troop
'has participated and contin-
ues to participate in this every
"'year.
h In 1961, the girls went for
eir first week-end camping
t Camp Eleanor in Panama


City. This is a neighborhood
event that girls have shared in
for many years.
In the past years, Scouts and
leaders have taken trips to
Stone Mountain, Ga.; Tampa,
Savannah, Ga.; Bonifay;
Blountstown and Tallahassee.
This year one Scout has
earned a special Bicentennial
trip to Philadelphia, Penn. ,
The troops in St. Joe were
Lone troops out of national
headquarters in New York,
until the fall of 1965, when the
Girl Scout Council of the Apa-
lachee Bend absorbed all
Scouts from Lafayette to Wal-
ton County, a total of 15 coun-
ties. Gulf County was part of
Nautilus Neighborhood in
Panama City. It was not until
October, 1969, that Gulf Coun-
ty was given its own neigh-
borhood, Wetappo.

ends up about 30 feet out of
line.
The Hanlon family, subdi-
viders of the property where
the road is located, now want
the road moved to its proper
position. The only trouble is,
property owners on one side of
the road think they own that
extra 30 feet. How do you get it
back without a squabble?


Attorney Witten said the eas-
iest way is to try and get the
property owners to agree to
give a quit claim deed.
Commissioner Otis Davis,
who opened the can of worms
at the meeting said the family
was interested in moving the
road and perhaps they could
get the proper permission to
do so. The Board decided to let


them try.
While talking about roads,
Chairman Eldridge Money
shed a few tears over the
condition of the Industrial
Road which 'skirts the north
edge of Port St. Joe. Money
was especially solicitous of the
east end of the road.
The Chairman said he knew
the road was in their second-


ary plan for re-surfacing, "but
it's way down on the priori-
ties". He wanted to see if some
shifting could be done to at
least re-surface the first quar-
ter mile where most of the bad
section is.
Commissioner Davis said
attorney William J. Rish was
to try to get the DOT to repair
this road or re-surface it.

PAGE TEN THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, MAY 27, 1976


.Stress Importance of Fire Prevention


Two hundred and two sixth-
grade students of Gulf County
participated in the 26th Annual
Forestry Day at the White
City Work Center of the Divi-
sion of Forestry on May 17-21.
The students and their
teachers journeyed from Port
St. Joe, Highland View and
Wewahitchka for a day of in-
structions in fire prevention,
fire suppression, forest man-
agement and wild life conser-
vation.
Forestry Day was initiated
in 1950, and is now jointly
sponsored by the Gulf County
Forest Fire Prevention Com-
mittee, St. Joe Paper Com-
pany, Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission and the
Florida Division of Forestry.
Five stations were used in a
county-fair system of instruc-
tion. Instructors were pro-
vided by the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission and.
the Florida Division of Fores-
try.
Forest Ranger Milton
Strength stressed the import-
ance of forest fire prevention
at station one. The causes of
wild fires and their effects
were explained. "Each year
there are a few fires in Gulf
County which are deliberately
set," said Strength, "but
many of our fires are caused
by human carelessness."
At the second station the
students climbed the fire
tower to learn how fires are
detected, located and crews
dispatched to suppress them.
Forest Ranger Felix J. Sch-
euermann manned this sta-
tion.
Jerry Girvin of the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission manned station three:
He discussed with the children
the effects of environmental
pollution upon fish and wild-
life, and ultimately on people.
County Forester Ralph
Edenfield discussed forest
management at station four.
Edenfield demonstrated
methods of measuring tree,
heights, diameters and


growth, as well as planting of
seedlings.
Station five was manned by
Forest Ranger John Redmon.
He showed the students the
equipment used in wild fire
suppression, and discussed
the techniques employed.
Tractors, plows, hand tools,
and back fire torches were
covered.'
After formal instructions
the students enjoyed sack
lunches, soft drinks and
games until time to return to
school. The soft drinks were
furnished by St. Joe Paper.
Company.
Twenty-eight sixth graders
from Highland View School


visited the Forestry Work
Center on Monday along with
their teachers, Herman Jones'
and Marie Anchors.
Tuesday 56 students came
from Port St. Joe, accom-
panied by their teachers,
Gwendolyn Ingram and Betty
Herring.
Fifty-eight sixth graders
from Port St. Joe visited the
Forestry Work Center on Wed-
nesday with their teachers,
Virginia Harrison and Billy
Barlow.
Teachers, Joyce Tanton,
Debbie Barnes and Bryan
Baxley, from Wewahitchka,
brought their 60 sixth graders
on Friday.

29 Predicted to Die In Week End Traffic


The Florida Highway Patrol
predicted this week that 29
persons will die in Florida
traffic accidents during the
Memorial Day holiday period.
The 78-hour period begins at
6:00p.m., Friday, May 28, and
ends midnight, Monday, May


31.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pat-
rol director, commenting on
the holiday prediction said,
''If our estimate should
prove to be correct, having 29
persons killed during this
period will be a tragic waste of


human lives."
He continued, "Last year 24
people were killed in traffic
crashes and 22 in 1974. In 1973,
traffic accidents took the lives
of 40 people during the
Memorial Day period. Over
the last four years about one
person was killed every two

and three-fourths hours."
"Law enforcement officers
cannot eliminate traffic
deaths alone. We must have
the full cooperation of the
traveling public if everyone is
to arrive alive," concluded
Colonel Beach.

First Minutes of Rain



Are Most Dangerous


Invisible dangers created
during the first few minutes of
Florida's frequent spring and
summer rain showers double
chances of motorists being
involved in traffic crashes
said the Florida Highway
Patrol this week.
"The first few minutes of
rain shower are the most
hazardous for driving. It is
during this period that the
grease, rubber and oil com-
bine with water to create an
invisible danger. Drivers
should immediately reduce
speed and double following
distances when the rain be-
gins," said Colonel Eldrige
Beach, director of the Patrol.
Intersections and curves are
most hazardous as vehicles
lose traction with the pave-
ment due to the buildup from

Eleven percent or 207 of
Florida's 1,822 fatal traffic
accidents occurred on wet
roadways last year according
to Patrol records.
"Our Patrol officers are
always most busy investigat-
ing traffic crashes during the


early part of rain showers.
This alone proves that driving
in rain is hazardous and
should be incentive enough for
motorists to take additional
safety precautions when the
rain begins," concluded Colo-
nel Beach.
