Huge Fire Threatens Downtown District


The Gulf County Commis-
sion agreed to move the
location of the new library to
be built here in Port St. Joe at
their regular meeting Tues-
day.
Bill Simmons, chairman of
the ad hoc Library Planning
Committee said the architect
hpd informed him the proper-
ty west of the Courthouse
where location was originally
planned had soil conditions
which would add approxi-
mately $25,000 to the cost of
the foundation for the build-
ing.
Simmons told the Board, "I
think it would be best to move
the building to the west side of


The Gulf County School
Board took most of its regular
meeting time Tuesday morn-
ing discussing charges which
have been made against an
instructor of Port St. Joe High
School.
Lynwood Vinson, who has
been teaching at the High
School for the past three years
has been charged with impro-
per conduct in the classroom.
At Tuesday's meeting the
School Board suspended Vin-
son without pay for the time
being and scheduled a public
hearing for the case to air the


the Courthouse and use that
$25,000 in the building."
The Board agreed with Sim-
mons' thinking and ordered an
immediate soil test of the new
site for foundation design.
The county has a sizeable
state grant assured for the
construction costs if things get
moving before the end of the
year. Simmons said architect
Charles Arthur Gaskin said
the deadline can still be met if
the soil tests are made imme-
diately.
OAK GROVE WATER
The Oak Grove water and
sewage construction program
also received about a 30 day
set-back Tuesday. Board at-


charges on Friday, November
19 at 1:00 p.m. The Board set
up the mechanics of procedure
in such cases Tuesday, as
provided for under Florida
law. At the November 19
hearing, a decision will be
made to dismiss Vinson or
reinstate him to his teaching
position.
Details of the incident on
which Vinson was charged
will be discussed at the hear-
ing meeting.
Also on the 19th, the board
will receive bids at 11:00 a.m.,
on construction of an addition


torney William J. Rish told the
Board the bond attorney who
had been giving a legal opin-
ion on the bonds, necessary
before financing can be ar-
ranged, had died before his
opinion could be given. An-
other bonding attorney must
now be contacted for an
opinion. Rish said this will
take from three weeks to 30
days.
Engineer Robert Nations
reported to the Board that
plans for the system had been
completed and the sewage
phase approved by EPA. "We
don't have EPA's opinion on
the water system since the
man who does this quit EPA


to the Vocational Education
complex at the school.
At another special meeting
on Tuesday, November 16,
newly elected members to the
School Board will be sworn
into their offices and seated to
their new positions. The Board
will also organize for the com-
ing year at the special meet-
ing. The new School Superin-
tendent will take over his
duties on January 1 of next
year.
The Board heard a repri-
mand of Port St. Joe High
(Continued on Page 2)


before he made the opinion."
Nations suggested the former
EPA man, now working in
private business in Pensacola,
be retained to give his opinion
so the project can proceed.
The Board agreed to Nations'
suggestion.
Nations also suggested the
Board go ahead and call for
bids on the project since he
felt the necessary approval
would be issued before bids
could be received.
Attorney Rish suggested the
Board wait until the next
meeting to issue the call for
bids since, "By that time, we
will be two weeks nearer the
decisions and will know better
just where we stand".
The Board decided to follow
the advice of their attorney.
MEETING CHANGED
The Board decided to have
their next regular meeting
Monday evening of next week
at 7:30 p.m., rather than wait
until November 23.
The change in the meeting
date will allow the Board to
wind up its old business and
seat the new Commissioners
by the schedule required by
law. The law requires the new
Commissioners to be sworn in
by midnight, November 15.
Following the seating of the
new Commission members,
the Board will organize for the

A fire, which threatened the
entire downtown section of
Port St. Joe for a time Friday
night, leveled Pate's Service
Center and tire warehouse
Friday evening.
According to on-the-spot
witnesses a gasoline tank
truck, operated by McKenzie
Tank Lines was unloading a
tank of gasoline at the station
around 7:00 p.m., when the
gasoline gushed back up out of
the fill pipe and covered the
driveway, of the service- sta-
tion. While the spilled gasoline
was being washed down with a
water hose, fumes got into the
building and reached the pilot
light on a heater. A minor
explosion set off the fire and in
a flash, the driveway was
covered in flames and the
building itself was in flames.
The fire engulfed the tank
truck.
The fire also did consider-
able damage to B. A. Collier's
Florida Boy Seafood business
which adjoined the Pate build-
ing. Firemen were able to
keep the seafood concern from
burning, but a new ice maker
on the roof of the building was
'badly damaged and the inside
and contents of the building
suffered considerable water
and smoke damage.
The extent of Collier's dam-
age has not been determined
as yet.


Port St. Joe firemen were
quickly on the job, but the
combination of several thou-
sand tires and gasoline burn-
ing, was too much for them to
combat in order to save the
building and its contents.
Flames were reported to
have leaped as high as 200 feet
into the air at the height of the
fire, showering embers on
buildings as much as two
blocks away. Only a slight
east wind kept the fire from
-spreading to Reid Avenue and
possibly burning several
buildings before the fire was
brought under control.
Firemen also concentrated
their fire-fighting efforts on
keeping adjoining buildings
cool.
Firemen from Highland
View, White City and the
Forestry Service were called
into action to help with the
blaze and a foam truck from
Tyndall Air Force Base was
summoned to try and smother
the stubborn fire
Three days later, smoke and
fire was still coming from the
gutted building.
Owner Frank Pate said he
lost nearly $150,000 worth of
new tires and equipment in the
building, only partially cover-
ed by insurance.
The building itself, which
was owned by Starling Oil
Company of Panama City,

Jaycees Putting Parade Together


Enthusiastic Jaycees are
once again putting together
the Annual Christmas Parade.
This years parade will be held
on Saturday, December 4th, at
11:00 a.m.


As customary, the local
Merchant's Association will
furnish cash prizes for best
entries in the parade. All
community orgainzations as
well as businesses are urged


to participate.
Participants desiring to en-
ter units in this years parade
should contact Karl Bowen,
parade chairman at 227-2261
as early as possible.


was a complete loss. There
was no insurance on the
building.
Pate immediately opened
up for business the next
morning in another station he
owned across the street from
his old location. Pate said his
plans now are to re-build, but
the future may change these
plans.
Pate had nothing but priase
for the fire department and
their quick decisive action and
felt a great relief that nobody
was injured in the fire.
"My main concern was that
the underground tanks would
blow up", he said. "If they
had, there would have been
considerable damage over a
wide area". Firemen were
careful to keep the area over
the tanks cooled off with a
steady stream of water.



Charges


Filed,


Dropped

The City of Port St. Joe has
had a charge of racial dis-
crimination in hiring prac-
tices slapped against it by
Marion Daniels of Port St.
Joe.
Daniels filed his charges
with the Department of Com-
munity Affairs this past week
and the charges were for-
warded to the City by the
office of Equal Employment
Opportunity.


State Department of Com-
munity Affairs notified the
City of Port St. Joe by letter
Tuesday of this week that they
had ruled there was no basis
for Daniels' charge of racial
discrimination. The letter
stated the State was dropping
all further investigation into
the matter.
Daniels told The Star two
weeks ago he was going to file
the charges because the City
didn't hire him in a truck
driver-operator position which
had become vacant. He said
he was also filing a class
action against the City for not
hiring black women, but noth-
ing has been heard from this
threat as yet.
Daniels claims he has been
discriminated against by the
State of Florida for failing to
pay him $75,000 in damages
for being .kept in a mental
institution unjustly for several
years. Daniels said he didn't
belong in the institution and
was ordered released after an
examination by psychiatrists.
Daniels said, "I have tried
very hard to communicate
with the people of Gulf County.
They have had CETA money
to hire people and have used
the money wrong by hiring
unqualified people".

-Authorized Griffin Con-
struction Co., to refurbish the
downstairs restrooms in the
old courthouse in Wewahitch-
ka at a cost of $2,304. Griffin is
currently under contract to
the Board for repairs to the old

ter funds obtained from Civil
Defense.
-Bonds were approved for
new County Commissioners
Leo Kennedy, William R.

-Several requests for pro-
perty assessment reductions
from Property Appraiser
Samuel A. Patrick were de-
nied until Patrick sent the
Board the proper forms fully
filled out.
-The University of Florida
notified the Board that Gulf
County has grown by nearly 10
percent in population in the
last five years. The estimated
population for Gulf has grown
by 813 to a present total of
1,909. Over half of the growth
was in rural areas, bringing
the total rural population to

Wearing

Braces
It may come as quite a
visual shock, says a spokes-
man for the Florida Society of
Orthodontics, but grandpar-
ents may soon be wearing
braces on their teeth to cor-
rect bite problems. The
spokesman said it was long
believed that orthodontal cor-
rections after the age of 40,
without surgery, was impossi-
ble because evidence indicat-
ed that by this age the upper
jawbone and frontal skull had
fused.


Whitfield, the Board ordered a
sign at the curve on Howard
Creek road near Highway 71,
warning of a dead end ahead.
-The Board agreed to erect
signs and instructed the Mar-
ine Patrol to enforce slow
operating speed for boats on
the canal at Highland View
between the bridge and Basic
Magnesia, Inc. Fishermen in
the area were complaining
that wakes from speeding
boats in the area were causing
considerable damage to their
boats tied up to the docks in
the area.


Teacher

Called

School Principal Ken Herring
for the procedure he followed
in dismissing a vocational
education teacher two years
ago. Herring had dismissed
Kenneth Clyde Carter.
The reprimand didn't con-
demn Herring for his actions,
but it reprimanded him for
being late in evaluating the
teacher before recommending
that he not be hired for
another year.
The reprimand came from
the professional practice com-
mittee of the State Depart-
ent of Education.
The Board took no action on
the reprimand except to ack-
nowledge it.


Firemen Seek
to Ease Loss

of House Fire

Highland View residents
were saddened by a double
tragedy which occurred in the
community last week end,
according to Fire Chief John
Peak.
Alva Clayton, a resident of
Highland View passed away
Friday night and the family's
home was completely des-
troyed by fire around 5:30
Saturday morning.
Peak says the family can
use assistance. If you care to
help this family in any way
with clothing, furniture or
other items, please call 227-

tourist trade. The people in Miami Beach, in
particular, feel the tourist is passing them on by
for the gambling havens of the Caribbean Sea
islands, leaving Miami Beach with its thousands
of huge hotels sitting half empty.
They think casion gambling would fill them
up again.
They are even now waging a strong fight to
get casino gambling approved in Florida; even if
it is approved for only Miami and Miami Beach.
They are waging a battle and promise to
continue waging a battle for the right to set up
gambling tables as what they feel will be an
added tourist attraction.
Personally, I feel the people of Miami have
fleeced the tourist of his money with their prices
to the point where they won't come back.
Offering gambling tofuyrthepempty:the6tourist's
pocketsbefore he knbWi'it-doesn't seemto be the :
answer.
I understand there will be a hot fight in the
Legislature next year by the promoters of casino
gambling against those who oppose the move. If
the Legislative move doesn't work, then they
plan to try to circulate a petition to get enough
names to call for a constitional amendment.
There's no doubt in my mind but what the
promoters of casino gambling can get enough
names on a petition to call for an election on
whether or not to allow the activity in the state's
constitution. I feel they can get the names in
Miami and Miami Beach alone.
When it comes to a state-wide vote, they are
faced with another matter. Miami and Miami
Beach and their population have tried to run the
entire state with their large delegations to the
House and Senate, they have tried to change our
way of doing things with the weight of their votes
against the votes of those who don't care. They
are trying to re-arrange such things as the
distribution of the secondary road tax, the race
track tax, school contributions and numerous
other things to the detriment of the small
counties.
Now they need the small county vote to
approve their casino gambling. Momma always
said your chickens would come home to roost.

I want to know what has happened to Dr.
Wayne Hendrix and his victory party.
Wayne assured me early in the presidential
campaign that he had issued orders to his right
hand man at his office, Pat Brady, to pull up all
the flowers and shrubs and plant peanuts around
the office. The purpose in this was to be that if
Jimmy Carter won the race for election as
President, we were going to pull up these
peanuts (by now matured) and have a big
victory peanut boiling. The last word I had from
the good doctor was that I would be invited, if
and when the party ever came off.
It's obvious that if Dr. Wayne was awaiting
only victory as an excuse to harvest his peanuts
and build a fire for boiling, his roadblock has
been removed. Peanut butter is now a staple of
the White House table for the next four years.
Jimmy is in.
Still, I haven't received my invitation to the
Victory peanut boiling. I was eagerly awaiting
that event, too. Not that I was anticipating a
Carter victory, but whether or not Carter was
elected, those peanuts would ripen and have to
be harvested. I suspected the boiling was going '
to come off no matter who was elected.
Still no invite. I don't know whether Wayne
called off the party or forgot to invite me.
What I really suspect has happened is that
Pat, who really has the upper hand in the
operation of things around the clinic, has told
Wayne those peanuts aren't ready to harvest
yet and for him to leave them alone until they get
ripe.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, NOV. 11, 1976


I saw in the papers the other day where the
seaside resort owners in Atlantic City, New
Jersey are happy over New Jersey's recent
agreement to allow casino gambling in the state;
particularly Atlantic City, which has fallen on
hard times as a resort area of recent years.
Atlantic City, with its famous Boardwalk
was once THE summer resort of the nation, but
has since fallen victim to the number and quality
of other summer resort areas throughout the
nation.
Some of the resort area operators in South
Florida also think casino gambling will be the
panacea to recent slumps in Florida's southern

Wt Plain or Fancy
With the opening of the oyster season, fresh succulent
oysters suggest different tastes to different people. To some,
oysters suggest a backyard party with oysters on the half
shell, while to others, oysters may create a mental image of
golden fried oysters or a rich oyster stew. To still others, the
holiday season means oyster stuffing for that plump golden
bird. Regardless of which of these delicious ways to serve
oysters you prefer, the list proves that oysters can be served
plain or fancy because of their versatility. To capitalize on
ibat \ersaiility and to expand your eating enjoyment, the

Plantings Heart of Design


By: Dr. Robert J. Black
Ext. Urban Horticulturist
University of Florida
Foundation plantings are
the heart of good home land-
scape design.
Such plantings imply a
heavy massing of materials
around the base of a building,
which is a most unimaginative
way to approach landscaping.
Often, inside the home, the
homemaker feels that every
inch of wall space must be
covered with a piece of furn-
iture. The same idea often
prevails in an approach to
outside plant design. What
they're actually doing in such
a case is providing a divider
between the structure and
the eye, thus one does not
complement the other.
Every effort should be made
to arrange plants so that the
building will be in harmony
with the surrounding. Simplic-
ity in the planting is a basic
component of all good land-
scape design. Simplicity does
not mean monotony. Rather, it
is variety without confusion. A
large variety of plant mat-
erials can result in a cluttered
appearance.
Just as good design is based
on simplicity, so also is ease of
maintenance. Maintenance
should be considered in the
planning stages of landscap-
ing and not as an afterthought.
Winding border edges, scat-
tered arrangement of flower
beds, garden accessories,
shrubs and trees are a few
items which create problems
when unplanned.
Interest in a landscape
planting is often created by
contrast. This can be a con-
trasting ground cover other
than grass in planting design.


In addition, one might become
more aware of the contrasts in
plant forms, texture, flower;
fruit and foliage color, with
the possible introduction of
certain non-living structural
elements. These could be in-
teresting pa:'ing patterns,
screens or baffles, planters
and water features.
Now is a good time of year to
take a look at your planting
design and analyze it for de-
sign quality. If you've massed
plants in a continuous row that
make it appear as if plants are
clinging to the building, you
can remedy the problem with-
out completing renovating the
existing plantings. The rear-
rangement of some plants and
the addition, of others may be
all that is necessary to make
an appealing landscape out of
an eyesore.

Holiday Traffic

Will Kill 30
Traffic accidents will claim
the lives of 30 people in Flor-
ida during the Thanksgiving
holiday period unless motor-
ists and pedestrians put forth
an extra effort to prevent
them the Florida Highway
Patrol said this week.
"The countdown begins at
6:00 p.m., Wednesday, No-
vember 24 and ends midnight,
Sunday, November-,28," ac-
cording to Colonel Eldrige
Beach, director of the Patrol.
Last year, 29 traffic fatali-
ties were recorded during the
102 hour period.
The Thanksgiving holiday
period is one of the heaviest
traffic holidays of the year
and highways will be jammed
with motorists

Roses Flourish


In Wind, Sun


Gentle winds and bright sun
are great for growing one of
Florida's finest flowering
shrubs says Florida Nursery-
men and Growers Association
(FNGA). That shrub is the
rose.
How wonderful it is to have
a rose garden that supplies
dozens of beautiful flowers for
decorating the holiday table.
It can happen if you are in a
place where a rose garden can
be planted.
There are so many varieties
of roses available today that it
is very difficult to make a
selection. Each year new All
American Rose selections are
available to the rose enthusi-
ast. Unfortunately, many of
them are without fragrance.
That does not, however, de-
tract from their beauty.
Roses should be planted
where there is at least five or
six hours of bright sun. The
soil should be improved.with a
lot of organic matter and some
dolomite. The correct pH for
roses is about 6.5. It may vary
but the effects will be plants


that have dull leaves or leaves
that are off color.
Now is the time to begin to
prepare the rose bed. Nurse-
rymen will soon begin to
receive their plants. These
will be potted in containers of
prepared soil for sale a little
later. When these plants begin
to bloom you can easily make
your selection of color and
fragrance.
If you already have a rose
garden then there are some
things you must do to have the
most flowers. Winter months
are dry. The amount of water
applied to a rose bush has a
direct result on the amount of
flowers produced says FNGA.
Of course, two or three water-
ings per week should be
sufficient even in dry weather
if the soil is thoroughly soak-
ed. Fertilizer must be applied
throughout the winter months
once a month. Never neglect
spraying rose bushes to pre-
vent insects and disease at-
tacks. The healthier the foil-
age, the more flowers you will


President Alters G. I. Benefits

G.I. Bill on October 15, which
terminates the existing educa-
tion benefits for individuals
recruited into the military
service after December 31,
1976.
Persons currently serving

cut.
Buy good rose plants. Try to
get bushes that are grafted on
Fortuniana understock. It has
been proven by research that
roses grown on this under-
stock will produce more flo-
wers than those on other
rootstock. The plant will grow
larger and faster.
Do not use just any fertilizer
on your rose bush. Purchase
one that is mixed and pre-
pared especially for the rose.
It should contain all of the
major elements as well as
many of the trace elements.
Apply a generous amount
each time you fertilize for best
results.
Plant several roses. Give
them as gifts. They are an
everlasting reminder that you
care. The plant can and will
live for many years if proper
care is provided.


on active duty or who join the
Navy or enlist in the Navy's
Delayed Entry Program be-
fore January 1, 1977 are
considered eligible for the
present G.I. Bill.
Individuals who are inter-
ested in volunteering now for
one of the Navy's officer or
enlisted programs and want to
take advantage of the current
education benefits are encou-
raged to contact the local
Navy recruiter to determine
whether they qualify.
Persons recruited into the
military service after Decem-
ber 31, 1976 will be eligible for
education aid if they elect to
participate voluntarily in a
contributory program. Ser-
vice members would contri-
bute between $50 and $75 a
month up to a total of $2700.
These funds would be matched
by the Veteran's Administra-
tion on a two to one basis.
The Navy offers profession-
al training for job skills in
several programs which lead
to commissioning as a Naval
officer, plus more than sixty
enlisted career fields includ-
ing the Nuclear Field, the
Advanced Electronics Field,

Field.

Sharks Find 'Goat' Meat Tough


Port St. Joe's Sharks fought
the bitter cold and three full
teams of Rutherford Rams
last Friday night on more or
less even terms until the last
period, when the Rams surged
ahead to a 41-14 victory.
The Sharks were in the
ballgame all the way until the
final period, even though they
were greatly out-manned.
The Sharks received a tough
break on the first play of the
ballgame, when running back
Keith Neel came up with a
sprained ankle on the first
play of the game and didn't
attempt to run the ball again.
He did get back into action on
several plays on defense. The
Sharks received another tough
break at half-time, when Jay
Fleming, who had been taking
up the slack left by Neel, came
up with muscle spasms and
could play only spasmodically
the remainder of the game.
But the Sharks have learned
to improvise these last few
games and they put Ray
L.wrence and Curtis Williams
into the running back posi-
tions, and did a creditable
job, even though the move cost
them the blockers they needed'
against the larger Rams.
The Rams scored twice on
the Sharks in the first period,
with the first score virtually
handed to them by a Shark
fumble. On the third play of
the game, Fleming fumbled
on the Shark 37 and two plays
later the Rams fumbled on the
Shark one yard line with Rick
Taylor falling on the loose
ball. As the Sharks attempted
to move the ball away from
the goal line, Curtis Williams
fumbled on the second play
and the Rams had the ball
back again on the Shark four.
On the first play from
scrimmage, the Rams' fleet
Attrice Gray scored on a


Making


Shore



Study

The Congress of the United
States has directed the Corps
of Engineers to make a study
of the Gulf of Mexico shore-
lines of the counties in north-
west Florida, between Indian
Pass and the Alabama State
line, in the interest of beach
erosion control, hurricane pro-
tection and related purposes.
This study is being made
under authority of Section 110
of the River and Harbor Act of
1962 pursuant to resolution
adopted 21 April 1970 by the
Public Works Committee of
the United States Senate. The
study was requested by the
County Commissions of the
various counties included.
The meeting for Gulf county
and the Mexico Beach area of
Bay county will be held in the
SCounty Commission Room of
the Gulf County Courthouse in
Port St. Joe at 1:00 p.m. est on
November 30.
Continuing studies will ad-
dress the needs for beach
erosion control and hurricane
protection in the remaining
study area. In order that the
study may be responsive to
the desires and needs of the
affected or interested parties,
public meetings will be held as
indicated. The purpose of
these meetings is to afford
local interests in the areas
under study and opportunity
to state formally the nature
and extent of the improve-
ments desired and to submit
appropriate information bear-
ing on the need for and
justification of providing the
desired improvements. In-
formation is also sought on
study related ecological and
environmental conditions and
problems in the study area.
All interested parties are
invited and urged to be pre-
sent or represented at the area
meetings.

plunge up the middle. Mark
Cutshaw kicked the extra
point and the Sharks were
behind, 7-0 with barely three
minutes gone in the game.
After the kick off to the
Sharks, they were forced to
punt after failing to make a
first down. The Rams took
over, after a fine run-back, on
the Shark 43. On the Rams
first play, Mike McCoy hit
Tony Mack with a 43 yard
scoring pass. Cutshaw again
converted the extra point and
the Sharks were down by 14
points in the first period.
The Sharks didn't quit.
After the Rams kicked off
the Sharks put together one of
their patented four yards and
a cloud of dust drives and used
up the remainder of the first
period and nearly two minutes
of the second quarter in their
first scoring drive. Using 16
plays, with all but one 15 yard
pass to Ray Lawrence being a
run by Jay Fleming and Curtis
Williams, the Sharks made a
first down on the Ram one
yard line and the next play
saw Rick Taylor vault over
the two lines to get the
touchdown. Taylor also kicked
the extra point to put the
Sharks right back into the
game.
The remainder of the period
was a see-saw affair until the
waning moments of the per-
iod. The Rams were driving,
but -Ray Lawrence and
Jody Taylor caught quarter-
back McCoy for a seven yard
loss and it looked as if the
Rams were stopped. But Mc-
Coy unloaded a 10 yard pass to
Terry Hartzog and the Rams
were on the scoreboard again.
Cutshaw put the extra point
try between the uprights and
the Rams had a 21-7 lead at
half time.
Shortly after the third per-
iod began the Rams took a
Shark punt on their own 26
yard line. Gray ticked off a
long gainer to the Shark 35 and
scored two plays later on a one
yard plunge. The try for extra
point was no good and the
Sharks were now behind 27-7
with nearly two full quarters
yet to play.
About mid-way in the per-
iod, Ray Lawrence stripped
the ball from the Ram quarter-
back and Allen Sampson re-
covered the loose ball for the
Sharks on the Ram 39. Law-
rence and Williams divided
the ball carrying duties and 10
plays later, Williams dived in
for the score. Taylor's kick
was on the mark and the
Sharks were behind 27-14.
Although this ended the
Sharks scoring, the Rams
went on to score twice more in
the last period.
The Rams scored in the
opening moments of the last
period, when Gray ran over
from the four yard line.
The Sharks had a chance to

People, Natural Gas & Safety


Natural gas supplies vitally needed energy
to thousands of homes, businesses and indus-
tries in Florida. Energy, whether it be in the
form of gas, electricity, oil, water, etc., when un-
controlled can be dangerous.

Even though a record for safe operations has
been established over the years by the regulated
gas industry, knowledge of the information con-
tained in this ad can assist you in recognizing a
potentially hazardous condition and take appro-
priate action to safeguard life and property.


Q. What Are Some Of The Characteristics Of
Natural Gas A User Should Know?

A. Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the following characteristics:
1. Odorless-an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will
rise into.the atmosphere unless trapped.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any burn-
ing process, incomplete combustion will
form carbon monoxide which is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from four
percent to 14 percent (approximate values
by volume of gas to air).

Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas use
shows it to be more safe than other energy
sources which you use in your home or busi-
ness.

Q. What Should You Know About Gas Odor?
A. 1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an
odor.
2. A substance is added by your gas company
to give natural gas a "rotten-egg" smell


should it escape.
3. Become familiar with the smell..~ .ka
you detect this odor, it doesn't positivel-'
tell you that there is a gas leak; but this js
sufficient reason for you to call ynmt "
company and have them investighter' :

Q. What Additional Ways Can You Detect A Ga'
Leak?
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect a
leak by seeing bubbles rising througkdpud-
dies of water in a uniform manner.'
2. A larger leak of gas from underground pip-
ing may be able to be seen by sand blowi&
around a small hole in the ground; it m y;
be felt just as you may feel air leaki
from a small hole in a tire or air hose; a
if it is a large leak, a noise can be hear
similar to air leaking. .
3. A flame at or around applicance piping
other than at the burner indicates leaka e,

Q. The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg" Odor Is l
Tected, Does That Mean Thai There 'l~
Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this should be checked to assure taW1
the odor isn't an indication of a gas leak. ,1V
your gas company and report it. Odors ~~i-
lar to that of natural gas may come fron 4e
following: '
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a sulphur
content.
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled, etc.

Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You Always
Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground pipe,
there should always be an odor. However,
when gas travels through the ground, such as..
a leak from an underground service line &i.'
main, the ground acts as a filter and ea'-


move the odor from the gas.

or use an open flame; however, do open
windows and doors to ventilate the area
(caution: don't turn on exhaust fans),
leave the building and call the gas com-
pany.
3. If a strong odor is detected in a building
and-or a hissing sound is heard-do not
operate electrical switches, lights or other
devices; do evacuate the building leaving
exit doors open on your way out, warn per-
sons to stay clear of the building and call
the fire department and gas company im-
mediately from another location.
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside (in the
yard, at the sidewalk, etc.)-immediately
call the gas company.

SAFETY IS YOUR BUSINESS. Educate
your family and friends about the precautions to
take when they believe they smell the odor of
gas.

CAUTION: The term "Gas" is used by the
news media and others to include a variety of
products such as liquefied petroleum gases (pro-
pane, butane), gasoline and natural gas. Each
product has its own characteristics which differ
from one another, thus the information given in
this advertisement is applicable only to
NATURAL GAS.

NEVER POSTPONE CALLING
THE GAS COMPANY WHEN
YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU SMELL GAS.
