Saturday Morning In Giant Parade


Santa Claus Is Comin


Jaycee Christmas parade chairman Carl
Bowen says Saturday's big annual parade to
welcome Santa Claus to Port St. Joe will have
more than 50 entries for what he describes as one
of the biggest Christmas parades in years here in
Port St. Joe.
Santa will be welcomed in the traditional
parade beginning at 10:30 with a long line of
floats, bands, decorated cars, marching groups
and hordes of youngsters of all ages lining the
sidewalks.
The big event is sponsored annually in a joint
effort of the Jaycees and the Merchant's
Association. It traditionally opens the Christmas
shopping season here in Port St. Joe.
Bowen says over 20 floats have been entered
in the parade "and maybe more to come before
the parade starts Saturday morning", Bowen
said.
Santa Claus will bring up the rear of the big
parade, riding on the City's fire truck, tossing
out candy to the children along the street.
Following the parade, Santa will be in the dining
room of the Pier 98 Restaurant to talk with
children and have his picture made with children
for parents who wish to bring their cameras and
take the pictures.
PARADE ROUTE
The parade will take its usual route north on


.1** ... -


own


Reid avenue to First Street, then down Highway
98 back to Fifth Street where judging of the
eligible floats will take place and prizes
awarded.
Cash prizes are awarded to the top three
floats entered by non profit organizations.
Floats of merchants and industry are not eligible
for the cash prizes.
The Jaycees will be marching in the
parade carrying an out-stretched blanket to
catch change tossed by the bystanders. The
money collected from this activity each year is
spent to bring Christmas to underpriviledged
children in the county. The Jaycees take the
children on a shopping tour and give them a
Christmas party with the funds collected.
BIG SALE
Merchants in Port St. Joe are ushering in the
Christmas season with a big pre-Christmas sale
which begins today and climaxes Saturday with
the entry of Santa Claus onto the festive scene.
The merchants are putting forth some of their
savings in a special 16-page section inserted into
this week's edition of The Star.
In addition to the big sale, the merchants
have arranged for free parking throughout the
city beginning today and continuing through the
remainder of the week.


21 Cases In



Fall Term



of Court


The Fall Term of Circuit,
Court ended here in Gulf
County this week, with 21
cases being presented before
presiding Judge Larry G.
Smith.
Many of the cases brought
before the court entered guilty
pleas, but five cases went
before a jury with two being
found not guilty and three
found guilty by the jury. One
case which was to go before a
jury had the Court rule that an
examination be given the de-
fendant before he is brought to
court.
Of those cases which went
before a jury, Thomas Eugene
Strickland was found not guil-
ty of a charge of withholding
support, and Jerry Cozart was
found not guilty of a charge of
issuing a worthless check.
Found guilty by the jury
were Joseph Quinn on a
worthless check charge and
Henry I. Rogers changed his
plea from not guilty to guilty
on a charge of buying, receiv-
ing, and-or aiding in conceal-
ment of stolen property.


City Files for Grant to



Finance Drainage Work


The City of Port St. Joe has
filed an application with the
Economic Development Ad-
ministration of the U. S.
Department of Commerce for
a grant of $266,900 to construct
drainage facilities in the City.
According to City Auditor
and Clerk, Mike Wright, the
drainage project has been
broken into two phases, with
funding being requested for
only one phase thus far. "We
had to do this in a hurry as the
funds were available for only
a short period of time",
Wright said. He pointed out
that funding was requested for
only the one phase because
engineering wasn't quite com-
plete on the other phase. "You
have to be ready to go for bids
on a project before funding
will even be considered",


Wright said.
If granted, the federal funds
will pay for construction of a
72" concrete pipe drain down
20th Street from Knowles Ave-
nue to the drainage ditch
running through the center of
Forest Park.
The City's engineers, Smith
and Gillespie of Jacksonville
said the project would take
care of the water problem
which plagues all of the east-
ern section of the City when
heavy rains fall.
Bob Gehrig, engineer with
Smith and Gillespie has told
the City the only way to have
any drainage relief here in
Port St. Joe at all is to drain to
this natural drain and provide
"tanks" to hold the water
when it falls in abundance
until it can run out in our flat


terrain.
The engineer's plan would
also call for construction of a
wier on the County drainage
ditch at Niles Road to prevent
water from backing up into
the City in a heavy rainfall.
"This happens", Gehrig said,
"especially during times of
extremely high tide".
Installation of the pipe
would dry up part of the
present county ditch, leaving
it available to catch rain
water during heavy precipita-
tion and allow two exits for the
water through the pipe and
park ditch and through the
county ditch. Gehrig pointed
out that the flat terrain here
allows for slow drainage at the
best. "It falls faster than it
runs off during heavy rains",
Gehrig said.
The project for which funds
were applied for is by far the
most expensive drainage pro-


ject being designed in a pro-
gram which will eventually
drain the entire City as well as
possible under the natural
conditions which prevail here.
Engineering is presently
under way on a program for
North Port St. Joe also. One
plan had been worked up, but
routing of outfall water had to
be changed before funding
could be applied for.
Wright said he hasn't heard
what Port St. Joe's chances
for funding are at present.
"They should be pretty good,
though", he said, "since the
program became available for
only a short while and with the
provisions attached, there
shouldn't be too many cities or
counties eligible to apply for
the funds available".
Wright said the funding is
being made available by a
public works bill with $136
million available in Florida.

Gulf County's Grand Jury
has been meeting every day
since Judge D. J. Driver of
Pinellas County ruled last
Monday that they were a legal
jury and had been properly
selected for the task at hand.
The Grand Jury has met
every day since, except for a
two day Thanksgiving holiday
Thursday and Friday.
A number of witnesses have
appeared before the body, but
there is no official list avail-
able of who the witnesses have
been since most have been
coming voluntarily. accorJing
to Clerk of the Court George
Y. Core.
Among the witnesses during
the past few days have been
George G. Tapper and Wil-
liam J. Rish, two of the parties
being investigated stemming
from charges by County Judge
David Taunton that they have
taken advantage of their pow-
er and public office in an
unethical manner.
Core said the only witnesses
the Court would have a record
of are those which must be
summoned by subpoena. Only
the Grand Jury has a record of
witnesses who appear volun-
tarily. The Grand Jury rec-
ords are secret.
State's Attorney Leo Jones


estimates the jury will need
another three to four weeks to
complete its work.

Hurricane Season Has Ended


The Apalachicola office of
the Weather Bureau says the
hurricane season ended Tues-
day, with fewer than usual
hurricanes and tropical
storms experienced this year.
Only six hurricanes and
eight tropical storms were
reported this year. Only one
storm and one hurricane hit
the United States; none of
which struck Florida. Hurri-
cane "Belle" struck the New
England coast inflicting $250
million in damages and claim-
ing five lives.
The Weather Bureau says
the average is six hurricanes
and eight tropical storms dur-


ing a season which runs from
June 30 to November 30.
Another unusual aspect, of
this year's storm season was


that no hurricanes or tropical
storms were reported in the
Gulf of Mexico or Caribbean
Sea,


Charity Ball Saturday


The annual Rotary Club
Charity Ball will be held this
Saturday night, December 4,

the Bay High Dance Band
would perform. The ball will
begin at 9:00 P.M. and con-


tinue until 1:00 A.M. Admis-
sion to the ball is $10.00.
Table reservations for the
annual event are now being
taken by the Club. Those de-
siring to make their reserva-
tions early and assure them-
selves of a table should con-
tact Mrs. Verna Burch at
Florida First National Bank at
.Port St. Joe.


A pre-sentence investigation
was ordered for both of the
defendants found guilty.
John David Lee was ruled
guilty on a charge of grand
larceny.

charged with criminal mis-
chief in the same case. A
presentence investigation was
ordered in each case.
Other guilty pleas were
entered by Donald Edward
Tullis, charged with aggra-
vated battery; Richard'"G.
Cook, burglary and William
John Logan, resisting arrest
without violence. A pre-
sentence investigation wvas
ordered in all cases.
In other dispensations, the
Court:
Accepted a nolo contender
(no contest) plea from Don
Vallie Williams on three
counts of grand larceny; de-
clined to prosecute Sylvia
Williams on a grand larceny
charge; ordered an examina-
tion of Patrick H. Bowers on a
charge of a felon in possession
of a firearm.

from last year's squad and
only three with varsity game
experience.
Lane said Preston Gant will
be one of the starting five for
his second year in a row.
Other veterans include Robert

Flirting with Danger


The Florida Medical Asso-
ciation reminds Floridians
that with the arrival of cold
weather most of us are driving
automobiles with the windows
closed and the heater on. The
FMA warns that unless you
have at least one window open
slightly, you are flirting with
serious danger from carbon
monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide is a color-
less, odorless, tasteless gas
from your auto exhaust. It is
deadly in an enclosed space.
The FMA stresses the need for
people to check to make sure
that their car's exhaust, muf-
fler, and manifold are tight and
free of leaks.
Sicgge you can't see, smell,


or taste it, the gas is hard to
detect except by your symp-
toms -- drowsiness, headache,
tightness across the forehead,
confusion, nausea, and muscu-
lar weakness.
If you should feel sleepy on


the highway, get off the road
as soon as possible. Open a
window, and let the fresh air
waken you. If you can safely
do so, get out of your car and
walk around. It might save
your life!


Taking Medical Course


Dr. K. Sinclair Franz, nep-
hew of Mrs. Herbert Brouil-
lette of St. Joe Beach, is in
Boston completing a course
sponsored by Harvard Medi-
cal School and the Massachu-
setts General Hospital as a
part of his surgical residency.
Mrs. Brouillette and her


sister, Mrs. Aleene Franz of
Chipley, will spend the Christ-
mas holidays with him and his
family in Charlotte, N.C.,
where he is connected with
Charlotte Memorial Hospital
and will finish his surgical
specialty in June.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


There were 24 eaters and two suckers set
their feet under our table on Thanksgiving day
and every one of them was hungry.
There was a table laden with a turkey, a hen,
a standing rib roast, Momma's home-made
noodles, dressing and all the trimmings and
when it was all over, there wasn't too much left.
We ate our Thanksgiving, being right up with
the times in which we find ourselves in today. We
even had peanut butter pie for dessert, along
with the pumpkin, apple sauce cake, pound cake
and a cake of some other description which was
good but I didn't get the name.
The day was the best one could have ordered
for a Thanksgiving day. The sun was bright, the
temperature in the 70's and one couldn't have
asked for a better time to get together in a house
which wouldn't hold 21 people and two suckers in

to the Editor


November 24, 1976
Mr. Wesley Ramsey
Editor, "The Star"
306 Williams Avenue
Port St. Joe, Florida 32456
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
In the past several weeks
the City of Port St. Joe has had
numerous conversations with
the authorities of the Farmers
Home Administration con-
cerning the City's choice of a
Hydropillar Water Tank over
a more conventional tank. The
Farmers Home Administra-
tion has been reluctant to
approve the City's Loan be-
cause the Hydropillar Tank
will cost some $71,700.00 ini-
tially over the thirty-eight
year period of the loan, this
will amount to $161,514.44 in
additional cost. This equals
out to $4,250.00 per year more.
However, after an extensive
analysis of the Hydropillar
Tank, the City Commissioners
the additional cost to be well
worth while for the following
reasons:
1. The Hydropillar design
affords more than 2,200
square feet of useable
storage.
2. Liability insurance would
be decreased, as well as
the overall maintenance
charges.
3. There will be no need for
a chain link fence that
currently surrounds the
City's existing water
tanks.
4. The overall aesthetic fea-
tures.
The City wishes to point out
the above facts in order to
satisfy the requirements of


Farmers Home Administra-
tion. Apparently they have
come under recent fire for
allegedly granting loans for
what some people consider
less than economical projects.
They have agreed to approve
the City's loan if the citizens of
Port St. Joe are made aware
of the addiditonal cost.
I am enclosing a copy of Mr.
William Weathers letter.
Sincerely,
Michael J. Wright

December 1,1976
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
Attached is a copy of a letter
to Judge Taunton dated Octo-
ber 28, 1976. As of this date
I have not received a reply. I
think it is a question to which
the answer would interest all
the citizens of Gulf County.
Judge David M. Taunton
Gulf County Courthouse
Dear Judge Taunton:
During your campaign for
the County Judgeship you pro-
mised the citizens of Gulf
County to donate $5,000 from
your annual salary for the
establishment of a children's
home in Gulf County.
As a citizen of Gulf County,
to whom this promise was
made, I would like to know if
you have made the contribu-
tion to the children's home and
the current status of the pro-
ject.
As a concerned citizen of
Gulf County, I would appre-
ciate very much a response to
this question.
Sincerely,
Ralph C. Roberson


one room. So, some of them went outside. The
kids played football and had a great time.
One thing about having a crowd like that
over to Thanksgiving dinner; I didn't have to eat
left over Turkey. That was all taken care of, and
I appreciate it.
Now, I'm priming myself for Christmas
when once again, the table will groan before
dinner and everyone else will groan after dinner.

I didn't even have a chance to get my pet
rock last year when they were so popular and
now, I have another "pet" I have to acquire if I
am to keep in step with the times.
I saw in the paper the other day where some
girl has come up with a pet rope to add to the pet
rock. The pet rope is curled, looped, straightened
and is generally a useful pet. I guess you could
say a pet rope is a working pet. The pet rock
didn't do anything but just lie there and defy
anyone to make it do any of the things a pet rope
can do.
I don't see the pet rope catching on any more
than the pet rock did, although someone will
make'a bundle off the fad before it plays out.
One thing about these odd pets; they don't
eat. That means there will be no need to come up
with a diet food for pet rocks or pet ropes like
has been the case with pet dogs. A pet rock and a
pet rope will maintain their lines, whatever they
are, until they are discarded or passed on to new
owners.
We had a pet rope at our house, before it was
fashionable, for the grandsons to play with. They
had a great time with the pet rope before they
knew it was a pet rope. Our pet rope has seen too
many days with our grandsons, however, and it
had to be carted away in a basket just a few days
before the announcement of the pet ropes hit the
world.

In connection with our editorial on popula-
tion across the page from this blurb, I saw in the
papers late last week where the nation has
increased in population by 9 million people in the
last five years.
Nine million people is more than the
population of the State of Florida, so we can see
the United States has several more mouths to
feed than we had five years ago.
Two interesting things about the reported
population growth:
Of the 9 million increase, 5.4 million, or
better than half was in the Southern states.
People are coming South and they must have
started even before Jimmy Carter started
running for President, so they can't all be
newsmen coming to Plains, Ga.
Item two is that Florida gained 1.5 of the 5.4
million the South received in increased popula-
tion. That means we received 25 percent of what
the South experienced in growth.
Down in South Florida they say that's bad,
since they are built solid between the shores of
the Atlantic and the Gulf, except for the swamps
in which the Indians live. They still have
breathing room. Up here in the Northern half of
the state, we could use a few more folks, but we
don't want to wind up with as many as Miami or
Orlando has.

Most of those folks who came to Florida
must have come from the North and brought
their weather with them. Whoever heard of
Florida having temperatures in the 20's in
November?
Watching the snow on the football games on
TV Sunday afternoon and experiencing the
temperatures we have had here in Port St. Joe
over the past month, we can easily see what
would make a person leave the areas where this
kind of weather is normal and expected. I just
don't see how anybody can ever get used to it.

Resolution-
In Memory of Sybil Scheffer
On November 21, 1976, Our
Heavenly Father in His Infin-
ite Mercy, drew aside the
curtain between this life and
the beautiful life beyond, and
called our beloved Sister Sybil
Scheffer to lay aside her pain
and enter through the drawn
curtain into the life where
there is no pain or suffering.
Sister Sybil was initiated
into our Chapter on November
27, 1945, she served as Trea-
surer for nine years of her 31
years of membership. She
enjoyed her' Chapter and did
much to promote its welfare
until poor health slowed her
activities. We recognize the
plan of life designed by our
Master. We humbly bow in
submission to his will, with the
knowledge He doeth all things
well.
BE IT THEREFORE RE-
SOLVEtD: that we, the mem-
bers of Gulf Chapter No. 191,
extend our deepest sympathy
to her daughter, Elouise, and
other family members, and
commend them to the love and
care of the Eternal Father.
BE IT FURTHER RESOL-
VED: that a copy of this
Resolution be sent to her
daughter, and the Charter
draped in grateful memory of
our beloved Sister and further
that a copy be sent to the Star
for publication and a copy
recorded in our records.
"God saw the road was
getting rough, As she grew


tired in body and mind So he
closed her eyes and beckoned
her As he whispered, Peace be
Thine."

mifted.

'Tis the Season of the Prized Poinsettia


Highly prized throughout
Florida and widely beloved as
a symbol of the Christmas
season is the Poinsettia. No
other flower can make such a
brilliant show of bright red
throughout the festive weeks
of December and January.
The poinsettia, Euphorbia
pulcherrima, is a member of
the spurge family which in-
cludes common ornamentals
like crown-of-thorns, copper-
leaf, castorbean and Florida's,
colorful crotons.
The Poinsettia was intro-
duced into the United States
by our first ambassador to
Mexico, Joel Roberts Poin-
sett. He had some sent to his
home in Greenville, South
Carolina in 1825 and this lovely
christmas flower has since
borne his name.
An interesting point about
poinsettias is their "flowers".
The true flowers are small,
green and yellow and incon-
spicuous. The showy red


parts, often called flowers, are
not parts of the flower; in-
stead, they are highly modi-
fied petal-like leaves, which
the botanist calls bracts. The
bracts are formed below each
flower.
Since the purchase of poin-
settias is a once-a-year thing
for most people several sug-
gestions on proper plant selec-
tion are in order.
The poinsettia buyer should
do the following:
-Select a plant which has
green foliage nearly to the soil
line. Old plants will usually
have experienced excessive
leaf drop. Foliage drop is also
caused by fluctuating temper-
atures, gas fumes, soil pro-
blems and plant pests.
The bracts should be large
and extend over the lower
green foliage. The most popu-
lar color in poinsettias is red.
However, other colors are
pink and white, -with many
shades in between.


Still Time to


Enter Parade


The 1976 edition of the
Christmas parade is in full
swing, according to Carl Bow-
en, parade chairman this
year. Bowen says final prep-
arations are underway. He
says it appears as if more than
50 entries will be in the parade
this year, making it one of the
biggest ever produced for the
holiday season.
Bowen says it still isn't too
late to arrange for entrys into
the parade. He says a call to
227-2251 will insure a place in
the line-up for those who wish
to participate. The parade
producers are especially look-
ing for antique autos, musi-
cians, horses, parading pets,
etc., which would add to the
gaiety of the occasion. Addi-
tional floats are also welcome.

College Night Set


At High

"College Night" will be held
at Port, St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School Thursday evening De-
cember 9, 1976, 6:30-9:30 P.M.
This program is being spon-
sored for all college bound
Juniors and Seniors who must
be accompanied by a parent
or guardian.
Schools such as Gulf Coast
Community College, Florida
State, Florida A&M, Univer-
sity of Florida, Birmingham-
Sohuthern, -Mobile ColIege;"
Troy State are among the 18
different schools who have
confirmed their participation
for this "College Night" pro-


School

.gram.
All Juniors and Seniors have
received information concern-
ing this program from the
guidance department. Par-
ents are urged to see that the
requested information is re-
turned promptly. to the guid-
ance office as indicated on the
instruction sheet.
All students and parents will
have the opportunity to tour
three presentations. Parents
and studentstwidl also have an.:
opportunity to ,ask these col-
lege representatives specific
questions concerning their
schools.


. It:


iter of will eventually develop into
)uttons open flowers. If the poinsettia
is already producing pollen,
you can be assured that a
portion of its useful display
life has already passed and
the bracts will begin to fade.
Poinsettias are predomi-
~" nately .greenhouse grown as
pot plants for Christmas in
-- most of the United States, but
in South Florida they can be
utilized as colorful landscape
shrubs. In north Florida they
may be frozen to the ground
before flowering so are best
used as pot plants.
Another excellent use of
poinsettias is as cut flowers.
The bracts need to be treated


to coagulate the milky sap and
reduce wilting. Immerse the
cut end of the stem in hot-
water for one minute and then
place immediately in cold
water. An alternate method is
to singe the cut end of the stem
over a flame for a second or
two and then place in color
water. Cut the flowers at least
18 to ,24 hours before they are
to be used and store in a cool
place.
Poinsettias make beautiful
house plants. If the new
varieties are properly water-
ed and placed in a cool, sunny,
draft free area the bracts will
remain lovely for one to two
months..

UPSIDE-DOWN BREAKFAST BREAD








THE STAR. Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, DEC. 2, 1976 PAGE NINE


Band Is


Entertained
Members of Port St. Joe's premiere march-
ing band were treated to a seafood dinner last
Wednesday evening by Mr. and Mrs. Gene
Raffield at their home on 21st Street.
The dinner of scamp, snapper, shrimp,
baked beans and cole slaw was served in the
Florida room of the Raffield home with some 70
band members and parents attending.
The marching band has had a. banner year
thus far, drawing raves and high grades
wherever they perform or compete with other
bands in the area. Appearing in three marching
contests this year, the band has earned two
"Superior" ratings competing in good weather
conditions and one "Excellent" performing in a
pouring rain.
The band presented their director, Ray
Smith and his wife with a fine swinging wicker
crib for the baby they are expecting. In return
Smith praised the band for their hard work, their
volunteer practice sessions and interest in being
a first class organization. He warned, "The
marching season is now over . now we go to
work building a concert band."
Band Parent President Tracy Pierce handed
out several awards to band members for
everything from a "hot lips" award to the "best
line of the year" award.

In the photo at right, band members file
through the serving line heaping their plates
high with fish, shrimp, slaw and baked beans.
Principal Ken Herring and Mrs. Charles Wall
(partially hidden) are doing the serving here.
In the photo, above left, Mrs. Smith views a
handsome swinging wicker baby crib present-
ed to the Smiths by the band, to handle their
"blessed event" which is well on the way.
That's Smith with his head in the bucket.


Band director Ray Smith opens up a gift containing a
personalized T-shirt, presented to him by band members.
Donnie Mclawhon helps Smith with the unwrapping chores.
Though the shirt was several sizes too large, some of the
more unkind band members cracked "It has to be that large
in order to have a neck opening large enough to get over your
head."

Host Gene Raffield came in for some
honors during the night, when Band Parents
president, Tracy Pierce presented Raffield
with a plaque of appreciation for his support
of the band through the years and for his
generosity in hosting the dinner for the band.


With 70 guests on hand eating dinner, the
chairs are sometimes in short supply. These
band members solved the chair shortage by
using the floor for a table and chair. The older
guests present either sat in a chair or stood to
eat their dinner. This sort of dining accommo-
dations are only for youngsters and Japanese.
