Grand Jury Finds NoWrong Actions


Gulf County's Grand Jury wound down
three weeks of investigation into charges
by Gulf County Judge David Taunton
that several public officials had mis-used
their public trust on Friday of last week
and handed down their presentments
Monday morning in the Gulf County
Courthouse.
The Grand Jury was investigating
charges by.Taunton that William J. Rish,
George Y. Core and George G. Tapper
had manipulated land deals and trades to
their own benefit in the past few years to
the expense of the tax payer. Accused as
accomplices in the "deals" were U.S.
Representative Bob Sikes, Senator Law-
ton Chiles, former Senator Edward
Gurney, State Senator Dempsey Barron,
Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle Con-


nor and others.
In their ruling handed down Monday,
the Jury ruled that "there was no
commission of a crime by any of the
above individuals or others, nor was
there any misuse of public office by any
of the above named public office holders
or violation of public trust". This negated
all the charges made by Judge Taunton
in an open County Commission meeting
in October.
According to their presentments, the
Grand Jury heard testimonies from
numerous witnesses and reviewed vol-
uminous documents in making its deci-
sion on the allegations. Taunton's char-
ges included: using influence in building
St. Joseph Bay Country Club; construc-
tion of a detour route to enhance the


value of property owned by George
Tapper; construction of certain drainage
ditches for the purpose of improving
property; land being made available in
the county as a return for favors; the
structure and operation of the City of
Ward Ridge and other various charges.
The Grand Jury report also laid
criticism on the Florida Department of
Criminal Law Enforcement. It stated
that two unnamed agents in the FDCLE
had attempted to use Judge Taunton to
instigate derogatory newspaper articles
about the people accused in metropolitan
newspapers including the Miami Herald
and Tallahassee Democrat.
FDCLE Commissioner William Troel-
strop said an "internal review" will be
conducted to determine whether there is


**


any truth to charges about the FDCLE
agents. The agents will be interviewed,
he said, "We're checking all angles to
find out what took place".
On hearing the verdict of the Grand
Jury, George G. Tapper stated, "This
action returns my faith in our system of
government.
"The Grand Jury investigated all of the
allegations and found not one of Taun-
ton's allegations to have any basis of
fact. It returns mine and my families'
reputation as well as other individuals
mentioned in the investigation.
"I feel like this was an attempt on
STaunton's part to create a political plus
for him. In the end, I feel his attempts are
going to have the opposite effect.
Tapper went on to say he was in the


process of filing a class action suit
against Taunton on behalf of the tax-
payers. The suit would require Taunton
to reimburse the county and state for the
expense involved in the matter including
his investigation, expenses by the State
Attorney's office, empaneling the Grand
Jury and expenses incurred by both
judges who were involved in the case.
Tapper said, "I hope no one else ever
has to go through an embarrassing
situation such as this in our county
again."
Clerk of the Court George Y. Core said,
"I have very little to say about the Grand
Jury investigation except there was
never a doubt in my mind as to the
outcome because I know that I have done
nothing wrong or even questionable in


anyone's mind.
"I am still confused as to just what it
was I was accused of doing that was
illegal or morally wrong. I sincerely
regret that an accusing finger has been
pointed in my direction for something
that never happened. So many people
have asked me if I was angry because of
this, and my answer has always been
that I am only disappointed in the
judgment used by intelligent people."
Representative William J. Rish, one of
the main targets of Taunton's investiga-
tion said, "I'm glad this thing is over and
that the 18 citizen member court found
the truth and made it public. If anyone
doesn't fully understand the truth, I'll be
glad to take him on a 15 minute tour of the

The Gulf County Commis-
sion issued a call for bids
Tuesday to construct thenew
library building here in Port
St. Joe and took the last step
toward issuing a call for bids
for the Oak Grove Water and
Sewer District construction.
Architect Charles Arthur
Gaskin reported to the Board
that he had received soil tests
in the area in which the
building is to be built, east of
the Gulf County Courthouse,
and found very good condi-
tions for the building. "There
is just a little muck in part of
the area about two feet down",
Gaskin said. "This will pre-
sent no problem and allow the
county to save over $25,000 in
construction costs".
The Commission had pre-
viously planned to build the
building on the west side of the
Courthouse adjacent to
Knowles Avenue but heavy
mucky conditions ran the
price of the foundation up too
high.
The call for bids went out
Tuesday and will be received
by the Commission on Tues-
day, January 11 at 11:00 A.M.
The Commission was con-
cerned about a state grant of
$176,000 which was available
until January 9 of next year.
First plans for receiving of the
bids was to do it on January 9
to get in under the deadline. A
call to the State Library Board
informed the Board they could
get a short extension of time
and the date was then changed
to the regular; meeting date on
the llth. The Board also wants
to take at least a week or two
to study the bids after they
come in.
'The delay in letting the bids


came about when the unfavor-
able soil conditions were dis-
covered in the first site choice.
Gaskin said if everything'
goes as it should, construction
should get underway no later
than March of next year.
OAK GROVE WATER
Board Attorney William J.
Rish informed the Board that
bonds had been validated to
finance half the construction
cost of the Oak Grove Water
and Sewer District and the
project was ready to go out for
bids.
Rish said some details still
hadn't been completed but all
would be ready to go by the



Get Those

Letters In

Time is 'running out
for kids to write their
letters to Santa Claus
and have them printed
in The Star's Christmas
issue this year.
Already many letters
have come in.
As is the custom of
The Star, all letters will
be printed if they are
received in time, and
then mailed on to Santa
Claus.
Just write the letters
and send them to The
Star, Box 308, Port St.
Joe, Florida 32456 or
bring them by The Star
office.
All letters should be
turned in by closing
time Friday afternoon


next meeting of the Commis-
sion.
This project will be financed
by a loan from the Farmer's
Home Administration and a
grant from the same agency.
Bids should be received on
the project sometime near the
end of January.
This project, too, was delay-
ed, when the attorney making
an opinion on the bonds died
before his opinion could be
issued.
There are only about three
attorneys in the state qualified
for this type work and another
attorney had to be employed
to give the decision.

Grand Jury


Presentments

This Grand Jury of Gulf County Fall Term of 1976, was
impaneled on the 151h day of November, 1976, charged with
its normal functions and, thereupon, commenced an
investigation relative to certain serious allegations against
various public officials and others. The Grand Jury
thereafter heard the testimonies from numerous witnesses
and reviewed voluminous documents and after three weeks
of interviewing all wn tnesses it felt necessary and viewing all
documents it felt ne-essary, finds the following to be true:
The Grand Jury 'inds that serious allegations were made
against Senator Lawton Chiles, Senator Edward Gurney,
Congressman Robert L.F. Sikes, State Senator Dempsey
Barron, State Representative Billy Joe Rish, Commissioner
of Agriculture Doyle Conner; Clerk of Circuit Court of Gulf
County George Core, former State Senator George Tapper
and others concerning the building of the St. Joseph Bay
. Country Club, a detour route around Simmons Bayou, certain
drainage ditches around the county, land sales in the county
to individuals, land ;ales aroundthe county to the State of
Florida; the structure and-operation of the City of Ward
Ridge, and other various and sundry concerns.
The Grand Jury made a careful and detailed study of all
the allegations presented by examining all witnesses, all
documents, letters and physical facts it felt necessary and
hereby finds and presents that in the above and similar
allegations there was no commission of crime by any of the
above individuals or others, nor was there any misuse of
public office by any of the above named public office holders
or violation of public trust.
The Grand Jury further finds and should point out that
the indignity that the above men suffered is an example of
what happens where persons make unfounded allegations
without going thro igh the proper lawful channels and
thereby circumvent our democratic system. Our system of
democracy requires that individuals be protected and not
accused in the oper public until they have been properly
investigated and charged by the proper authorities.
We, the Grand "ury, understand that every person has
the right to freedom of speech but no person has the right to
irresponsibly accuse persons of misconduct and thereby hold
such persons up to public ridicule, embarrassment, loss of
reputation and standing in the community unless such
charges are based upon competent and substantial facts. We
find such was the situation in the allegations made against
the above public office holders and others.
This Grand Jur:y finds that the Florida Department of
Criminal Law Enfoi cement serves a useful purpose in the
field of criminal lavy enforcement. The Department offers
support and assistance to local law enforcement agencies, is
able to work crimes .hat cross county lines and circuit lines,
and evaluates and he ndles complaints given to them from the
Governor's Office.
The Department also makes available to police
departments, sheriff's departments, and other agencies
throughout the State laboratories to assist in the identifica-
tion of weapons, f ngerprints, blood samples and other
evidentiary material s, without which services local taxpay-
ers would be put to great expense for the same individual
service or have none at all.
In spite of the above, however, every public agency can
be misused by it; administrators, department heads,
workers and others by such individuals violating sound

Family Services Wants to



Rent Renovated Building


The Department of Family
Services approached the
County Commission Tuesday
with an offer of renting almost
the entire bottom floor of the
old Courthouse in Wewahitch-
ka if the County would make
certain renovations to this
portion of the building.
Andy Thomas, district su-
pervisor of the Division and
Steve Flournoy, with the Tal-
lahassee office told the Board
they would negotiate a rental
agreement for the space if the
County would make renova-
tions inside such as sheetrock
or paneled walls, dropped
ceilings, carpet, dependable
heat and cooling facilities.
The Board has already done
considerable renovations to
the building with grant mon-
ey, but not much has been
done to the inside.
Flournoy told the Board the
Division wished to move back
to Wewahitchka but it did not
want to move back into what
they moved out of. He made
an offer of leasing the facili-
ties for a four or five year
period with options to renew if
the rehabilitation was done.
Commission Chairman Ev-
erett Owens appointed a com-


mittee of Commissioner Otis
Davis, Jr., Bill Simmons,
Harland Pridgeon and Charles
Arthur Gaskin to inspect the
building and make a recom-
mendation to the Board in the
near future.
The County hat already
applied for a grant to renovate
the inside of the building. In
the project are plans to re-
furbish the old jail into a
library for Wewahitchka. The
library in Wewa is presently in
space formerly occupied by
the Clerk of the Court.
BUYING MACHINE
Road Superintendent Lloyd
Whitfield told the Board his
department is getting farther
and farther behind with its
work after loss of a major
piece of machinery to fire
several months ago.
Whitfield asked the Board to
purchase a new machine to
replace the burned one. The
machine was used mainly in
road and ditch maintenance.
The problem is that the new
machine costs in the neighbor-
hood of $70,000 and the County
had budgeted only $30,000 for
new equipment.
Chairman Everette Owens
warned Whitfield that he also


needed trucks. Commissioner
Otis Davis seconded the warn-
ing by noting "It cost $19,000 to
maintain the four worn-out
trucks we now have last

SMoney for Reading
:? *


Education Commissioner Ralph
Turlington has proposed that the
state levy $30 million to provide
summer school classes for children
who are slow readers in order to
enhance their skill in this basic
ingredient to education.
- It's refreshing to us to see the
state's school system think of ap-
propriating money to do something
necessary and mandatory.
.We don't especially relish pay-
ing more taxes to build more
buildings in an era of reduced pupil
load. Nor do we think it necessary
that we go into new programs just
because some egg-head thinks it
would be nice for our children.
We're relieved to know' the
educational system of our state is
becoming concerned enough with
the inability of our children to read
that they would consider appropriat-


ing money to help the situation.
In other facets of his requested
budget Turlington .is asking for
healthy increases up to 18.2
percent for the universities, even
with their pupil load reducing.
While we think extra attention is
due and mandatory in the area of
reading, in all probability this flush
of concern will probably be washed
down the drain when the budget
cutting comes. It will probably be
considered more necessary that we
use that money to build a new
student center, gymnasium, or other
frill building than to prepare stu-
dents for their days they will spend
in college. If they can come out of
college with an education and
'they can if they can read when they
get there the facilities we now
have will have been put to good use.

Boaters

Beware
The U.S. Coast Guard cau-
tions recreational boaters to be
on the look-out for sudden
changes in the weather.
The following accident re-
ports illustrate how boaters
(hunters and fishermen as
well) can get into trouble from
suddenly changing weather
conditions:
1. Four people;.fishing in a
I ft.. but ioar~ d boat, beached
their boat when weather con-
ditions began to worsen. When
they decided to get underway
again, a child boarded the
boat first and sat in the front
seat, then two of the adults
boarded and went to the stern
in order to raise the bow
sufficiently for the remaining
adult to push the boat off the
beach. As the boat was push-
ed, stern first, into the sound,
water entered the boat over
the transom and the engine,
partially flooding the boat. As
the boat drifed from the beach
the operator was unable to
start the engine. Then, one
adult stood on the gunwale and
jumped into the water to swim
to shore, causing the already
half-filled boat to list further.
More water entered the boat
and capsized it. The man who
jumped, drowned, the three
remaining people in the water
were later rescued.
2. Four people, fishing on
board a 15 ft. motorboat, were
caught in a sudden thunder
storm. As they headed for
shore to seek shelter the
engine failed and the rough
water caused the boat to flood
and capsize. One person at-
tempted to swim to shore and
drowned. The three remaining
people stayed with the boat
and were rescued.
Just before setting out on an
excursion, hunting trip or
fishing trip, boaters should get
an accurate up-to-date wea-
ther report. If the weather is
going to be bad, stay in and
plan your trip for another
time.

An attempt to contact Judge David
Taunton for a statement met with the
information that he was out of town and
would be gone until Monday of next week.
Taunton. however, had made state-
ments to the daily press and TV that he
thought the Grand Jury did not find any
laws broken because State Attorney Leo
Jones had not presented the state
statutes that applied in the case.
Taunton had also made a charge in
open court on the first day of the Grand
Jury meeting that he considered the
session "an exercise in futility".


ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


A couple of months ago, I met one of our
out-of-town readers in Rich's Super Market. I
had gone over to pick up the copy for Bill's ad
and I ran into Mrs. George Small, who lived next
door to us several years ago. Mrs. Small
introduced me to her mother-in-law, who lives up
in New York state. Mrs. Small, being a
Scotchman's Scotchman, asked me, What part of
Scotland did your family come from?
I didn't know. As far back as I know, the
Ramsey's came out of Kansas. I had never
thought what national origin the name "Ram-
sey" had. Last summer, a cousin was in town
from California and she was tracing the family
tree, but was able to get back only a few
generations to Reno, Kansas. It appeared as if
the Ramsey's just sprang out of the dust of-
Kansas: I thought that was what aid happened
until I met Mrs. Small.
Mrs. Small assured me that "Ramsey" is an
old Scottish name. When she said that, I took it
for granted she was a friend, lest she wouldn't
claim our name as one of her beloved
Scotchmen. We would have been English, or
Welsh, or something else.
In the past few weeks, Mrs. Small has sent
me a short history of the Ramsay clan which was
prominent in Scotland as far back as 1296, when
the name of William de Ramsay appears in the

Presentments

agency standards set forth to prevent such misuse. This Jury
finds that such was t ie case with the FDCLE concerning the
manner in which the complaints divulged by Judge Taunton
in a public meeting on October 26, 1976 were handled.
Specifically, this Grand Jury finds that agents of the FDCLE,
beginning in April of 1976 and continuing through October of
1976, bypassed the normal procedure for handling complaints
of this nature and, instead, without the knowledge of the
Commissioner of the FDCLE, attempted to use Judge
Taunton to instigate derogatory newspaper articles about the
people being accused in this area of Florida in the news
media, including the Miami Herald and the Tallahassee
Democrat. We find the intent of such instigation was to
override administrative safeguards and decisions by the
responsible authority in the FDCLE and the Office of the
Governor of Florida. This attempt to subvert established
policies of the FDCLE we find to be particularly
reprehensible in view of the fact one of the accused persons
was running in a contested race for high public office and this
effort to have derogatory information and false allegations
printed in the newspapers was apparently designed to affect
the results of the election and to arouse public sentiment to
assure that the false allegations would be vividly brought to
the public's attention to the embarrassment of those people
accused and to the citizens of this county.
The Grand Jury further finds this attempt was confined
to two agents of the FDCLE and wishes to clearly point out in
this Presentment that when proper authorities of the
Department were fully advised of Judge Taunton's
complaints and the facts upon which they were based,
immediate action was taken to fully and properly evaluate
and report the true situation.


USDA Amends

School Menu

for Breakfast
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) has an-
nounced an amendment to the
School Breakfast Program
regulations to provide greater
flexibility in the meal pattern
by allowing the service of a
vegetable in the meal.
Previously, School Break-
fast Program regulations cal-
led for the service of fruit or
full-strength fruit or vegetable


juice as part of the breakfast
pattern. Under the amended
regulations, the breakfast pat-
tern includes a serving of
bread or cereal, milk, and
fruit or vegetables, or full-
strength fruit or vegetable
juice.
Officials of USDA's Food
and Nutrition Service (FNS)
said the nutritional standards
for the breakfast pattern will
be enhanced or maintained by
permitting the service of vege-
tables. At the same time, the
service of vegetables will gi-:
states and schools greater
flexibility in program opera-
tions, FNS officials noted.

It was all very impressive.
If this is, indeed, the origin of the "Florida
Ramsey's", then in all likelihood our forebear
was one of those who fell out of favor with the
Lord, the Marquess or the king and had to leave
Scotland for the new world on the first boat.
Another possibility is that one of the Ramsay's
serfs or servants took the name of their lord's as
was so common in those days and we came from
Humble begihn iin'gs.
Now it's a question of whether we came from
riches to rags or from rags to rags. Mrs. Small
seems confident we came from Scotland.

While he may have changed his mind since
Saturday, I saw in the Saturday paper where
Muhammad Ali was going to fight again. He
needs the money. That makes about the third or
fourth time Ali has changed his mind about
retiring.
The first time Ali changed his mind and
decided to fight again, former champion Joe
Louis came out in a public statement and
advised Ali that if he wanted to quit on top, he
had better do it now. Even though Louis was
probably one of the greatest champions we ever
had, he tried to hold on too long and at times was
humiliated in the ring. Louis has the experience
to properly advise Ali.
As a matter of fact, I think that at his prime,
Joe Louis could pound the stuffings out of Ali.
Ali may think he still floats like a butterfly
and stings like a bee, but Joe Louis knows the
butterflies are in his stomach and the bees in his
head if he thinks he can keep on winning forever.

I noticed when I went home the other night
that the Christmas lights have been turned on
downtown: at least many of them are turned on.
The Christmas lights are a little late this
year. It was raining during the time when they
are ordinarily put up and it was after
Thanksgiving when the City crews could begin
their week-long task of getting them up.
They look good and are worth the effort and
time spent to take a little .spin in the car some
night to give them a look.
The lights hanging and the crowds downtown
tell us it's getting near Christmas. A look on the
calendar tells me it's only eight days away. Time
to get cracking.

The "Moonies" were back in town last week,
selling boxes of candy. They were up and down
the streets, accosting everyone who would stop
to purchase a 59c box of candy for $2.50.
We had several calls here at the office,
asking if the City couldn't do something to chase
them out of town. Even if the City had an
ordinance to this effect, I don't think it would be
constitutional. Maybe Ralph Nadar could do
something about the value they were offering in
their candy package, but each individual should
be able to take care of that little problem.
When they approached me about "buying a
delicious box of candy to help the church". I
asked them, "What church?"
When they replied, "The Universal church",
I told him, in a firm and definite voice, "Thanks,
but no thanks".
That took care of that. No more "Moonies".
We don't need a law to take care of such as
-this.

year".
After figuring out their fi-
nances and counting their
pennies, the Board agreed to
call for a bid on the new
machine with several options.
The options included a plan to
pay for it over a period of
three years, a cash price and
with or without trade of the
burned equipment.
The Commission also came
to the conclusion that they
would buy new trucks with a
portion of this year's revenue
sharing money if and when it
started coming in. The belief
of the Board was that the
sharing money would be forth-
coming in a short while.
In other business, the Com-
mission:
-Agreed to send a resolu-
tion to the State Board of
Health recommending the em-
ployment of Mrs. Helen Gilley
to take the place of Mrs. Polly
Sowers in the County Health
Department. Mrs. Sowers is
retiring and Mrs. Gilley has
worked as her assistant.
-Agreed to repair several
roads in the black section of
Wewahitchka.
-Heard a request by Com-
missioner Leo Kennedy to
pave several streets in St. Joe
Beach with county funds using
soil cement rather than fi-
nance the paving under the
secondary road program.
-Agreed to a request from
Commissioner Branch that


Mosquito Control Superinten-
dent Tommy Pitts be allowed
to work up a complete county
road map in his spare time.
-Agreed to drop the plate
glass insurance policy which
is costing the county $700 a
year.
-Approved bonds for Tax
Collector Harland Pridgeon,
Clerk George Core, Sheriff
Ken Murphy, Supervisor of
Elections Dessie Lee Parker
and Propety Appraiser Sam-
uel A. Patrick.
-Agreed to hold a public
hearing to close a portion of an
alley in St. Joe Beach behind
the home of Henry Cassani.

Study Shows Couple of Drinks


Makes You Talk More, Listen Less


Ml Bet You
Didn't Know
About This! f







We Have A Complete Line Of


A California Phychiatric
study has confirmed what
veterans of the cocktail party
circuit have long suspected,
after a couple of drinks we
talk more and listen less, the
Florida Medical Association
advises.
If you have suspected the
cocktail party conversation
consists largely of interrupt-
ing your colleagues with your
own thoughts, while paying
little or no attention to what
the others are saying, you're
right, say Robert C. Smith,
Elizc.eth Parker and Ernest
P. Noble in a report in a recent
issue of Archives of General
Psychiatry, a publication of
the American Medical Asso-


citation. The three were with
the Department of Psychiatry
and Human Behavior of the
University of California at
Irvine when they made the
study.
The research project was
carried out with 18 male-
female couples, ages 21 to 30.
all volunteers. The couples
were known to each other as
spouses or close friends. Non-
drinkers, very heavy drinkers
or heavy users of other mind-
altering drugs were excluded.
Alcohol was administered
as 80-proof vodka in pepper-
mint flavored cocktails, two
each. Some of the participants
got the peppermint drink with-
out vodka, and none knew


which he was drinking.
The conversation was then
taped and transcribed for
study.
The most consistent effect of
alcohol on communication in
this study was the increase in
the amount of interrupting or
overlapping speech. There
was more overlapping in the
alcohol than in the non-alcohol
session, and still more in the.
high-dose alcohol session, the
researchers found.
The study was designed to'
determine effect of alcohol on
social conversation.
Overall, alcohol appeared to
make social communication
more disorganized and intoxi-
cated subjects seemed less


likely to follow conventional
rules of etiquette in their
speech. Participants broke in-
to their partner's conversa-
tions more frequently, and
their responses tended to show
less acknowledgement of what-
their partner was talking a-:
bout.
At the conclusion of each:
session, the subjects were fed,:
detained until signs of intoxi-
cation had worn off, and
driven home.

SELL THAT TRASH FOR
CASH WITH A CLASSIFIED
AD


Congressman Bob Sikes of
Florida has strongly urged the
Farmers Home Administra-
tion to establish field offices in
Panama City and Port St. Joe.
There is a serious need for
theseadditional county offices
to fully implement the pro-
grams of the Farmers Home
Administration and adequate-
ly service the present case-
load. The rural population of
Florida has grown faster than
any other state during the past
ten years and this rate of
growth is expected to contin-
ue. The complexity of the
FmHA programs, business
and industrial loans and the
fact that applicants are na-
tives of many states other
than Florida.
The Panama City office
would service Bay County and
the Port St. Joe office would
service Gulf and Franklin
Counties. Bay County is pre-
sently being served by a three
county office with a caseload
in excess of 900. This county is
one of the most rapidly grow-
ing areas in the state and the
bulk of the caseload is 45 miles
from Chipley, the location of
the nearest FmHA county
office at the present time. Gulf
County is also serviced out of
the Chipley office and the
caseload is 70 miles distance.
Staffing requirements would
be one county supervisor and
one county office assistant in
each location.
These additional offices are
needed now and Congressman
Sikes is hopeful that the
FmHA will act favorably on
this request.
Congressman Bob Sikes of
Florida has been named
Chairman of Zone 7 in the
Democratic leadership pic-
ture. Zone 7 is composed of the
states of Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi and Louisiana.
Congressman Walter Flowers
of Alabama has been selected
as the Zone representative on
the Democratic Steering Com-
mittee, an organization made
up of the leadership of Con-
gress -- the Majority Leader
and Whip plus representatives
for each of the twelve Zones in
the United States Congress.

It's No


Tale

It's not unusual for Ralph
Shoemaker and company, a-
board the "Selma Kay" to
catch sharks in their shrimp
nets. but this model above just
doesn't come through this
area that often. Thrasher
Shark is the name of the weird
looking animal and they're
usually found in the waters of
the Mediterranean Sea and
the Atlantic Ocean.
This particular one measur-
ed two feet four inches long
and his tail two feet, five
inches long. Now, these ani-
mals feed by getting adjacent
to a school of fish and sweep-
ing food into their mouths with
their tails. The average length
for a Thrasher is eight feet
and the record is 922 pounds,
according to the shark book of
Gene Raffield, who along with
M.C. Wood and Buddy Wood
and the rest of the crew of the
Selma Kay and Wood Fisher-
ies were stumped by the odd
looking fish.

Two Sharks Make Democrat's


Sharks Lose One-Point Decision to "All-Big Bend" First Squad


Rutherford; Down P.C. Christian


Port St. Joe's Sharks broke
even in their basketball sche-
dule this past week, losing a
squeaker to Rutherford by one
point and winning big over the
Panama Christian Crusaders.
Playing without the services
of their big point producer and
rebounder, Preston Gant, the
Sharks had the Rams beaten
up until the last six seconds of
the game, when Sidney Nixon
was called for a foul against
the Rams Johnson. Johnson
sank both his free throws, his
only points in the fourth
quarter, in a clutch situation
to give the Rams a one point
win over the Sharks. The foul
was called on Nixon just as the
closing buzzer sounded.
The Sharks started off slow
with a nine point deficit at the
end of the first period. It took
the Sharks until the third
period to pull ahead and by the


end of the period, the Sharks
held a one point lead. They
hung on to the slim lead until
the last six seconds when the
two free throws won the game
for Rutherford.
Nixon was the leading point
producer for the Sharks with
22. Robert Thomas was in
double figures for the Sharks
with 14. Raymond Rogers and
Thomas led the defense with
seven rebounds. Ray Law-
rence added six rebounds to
the Shark defensive effort.
Moore led the Ram scoring
with 17 points.

W. B. Simmons, Chairman
of the Library Committee,
reported that the engineers'
report shows that the site first
selected for the new library
does not have the type soil to
support the library building. A
structural foundation using
piling would add about
$25,000.00 to the construction
costs. He then recommended
that this site (northwest por-
tion of courthouse property)
be exchanged for a site located
on the north corner of the
courthouse property. After
discussion, there was a motion
by Comm. Player, seconded
by Comm. Whitfield and
unanimously carried that the
library site be relocated to the
northern sector of the court-
house property and that soil
tests be made on this new
location as soon as possible. A
copy of the soil test made by
Ardaman & Associates, Inc. of
Orlando, Florida, was filed for
record. The Board voted to
pay the fee of $830.00 for
making this soil test.
The Road Superintendent
reported that secondary main-
tenance.costs for the month of
October was $2,323.14.
The Board received a notice
of claim under F.S. 704.05
from the Lister Estate, show-
ing an interest in certain lands
conveyed to the county.
By request from the City of
Port St. Joe the Board direct-
ed the Department of Trans-
portation to discontinue any
further consideration of prior-
ity numbers 12, 13 and 14,
which are three streets in the
city that were listed on the
present secondary road pro-
gram.
The Agricultural Agent and
the County Health Depart-
ment filed reports for October.
Charles A. Gaskin, AIA,
Architect, presented an appli-
cation for payment to Griffin
Construction Company for the
re-roofing and renovation of
the old courthouse in the
amount of $26,043.30 and upon
motion by Comm. Player,
seconded by Comm. Owens
and unanimously carried, this
payment was approved.
The Attorney reported that
he contacted the Game and
Fish Commission and request-
ed assistance regarding the
controlling of undesirable
vegetation in our mosquito
control ditches. Tommy Pitts,
Mosquito' Control Super-
visor, reported that this mat-
ter has now been taken care
of. He said the Game and Fish
Commission Department's
Aquatic Botanist came to Gulf
County, inspected the problem
areas and assisted us in ob-
taining the necessary chemi-
cals to eliminate this problem.
The State Comptroller noti-
fied the Board that he was
withholding $5,669.00 of Gulf
County's State revenue shar-
ing funds to be applied against
the $15,746.42 due for medi-
caid payments.
The Board heretofore re-
quested Griffin Construction
Company to submit a pro-
posal to rework the down-
stairs restrooms at the old
courthouse. He filed his pro-
posal in the amount of
$2,304.00. There was a motion
by Comm. Player, seconded
by Comm. Owens and unani-
mously carried, that this work
be authorized.
Steve Nations, Florida Engi-
neering Associates, reported
that he has the plans for the
Oak Grove Water and Sewer
project ready to advertise for
bids; that he has not com-
pleted the working plans, but
said working plans will be
completed within a few days.
He said that he has received a
permit for the sewer portion of
the project but has not been
able to obtain the water
system permit. He suggested
that the delay in receiving the
water permit may only be a
departmental hang-up. The
Board requested the Attorney
to assist in obtaining this
permit.
The Board approved the fol-
lowing bonds: 1) William
Robert Branch, $2,000.00;
2) Paul Sewell, $2,000.00; and
3) Jimmy O. Gortman,
$2,000.00. Each bond is written
on the Continental Insurance
Company.
The Board agreed to allow


the City of Port St. Joe to


construct a weir dam and to
tie-in to the George Washing-
ton drainage canal on the
courthouse property.
The following applications
for employment were received
and ordered filed: Emogene
C. Hopps, Andrew Jackson
Hall, Barbara Jean Alexan-
der and Jimmy 0. Gathers.
The Board having hereto-
fore employed Charles A. Gas-
kin, AIA, Architect, to design
a new roof for the old court-
house, which project has long
since been completed and a
contract let for said construc-
tion to Griffin Construction
Co., which work has been
completed; that legal con-
tracts for this work were
never executed; therefore,
there was a motion by Comm.
Davis, seconded by Comm.
Owens and unanimously car-
ried that the Chairman and
Clerk execute the proper con-
tracts in order that a complete
record of this action be on file.
The Florida Power Corpora-
tion requested the county to
grant it a guying easement for
anchors for a new electric
transmission line. The Board
requested Tommy Pitts, Mos-
quito Control Supervisor,
make a study of this request
and make his recommenda-
tions at the next meeting.
Hon. Samuel A. Patrick,
County Appraiser, present-
ed six certificates to correct
the tax roll. Tabled until next
meeting.
Upon motion by Comm.
Davis, seconded by Comm.
Whtifield and unanimously
carried, the Board appointed
the following three persons as
members of the Gulf County
representatives on the District
II Manpower Planning Ad-
visory Board for the year 1977,
to-wit:
Public Representative: Jer-
ry Gates; Agency representa-
tive: Douglas Birmingham;
Client representative: Annie
Nickson.
Upon motion by Comm.
Davis, seconded by Comm.
Whitfield and unanimously
carried, the Board appointed
Mike Lister as a member of
the Gulf County Citizens Ad-
visory Committee of the
Coastal Zone Management
Program.
Comm. Whitfield told the
Board that the Stop-Inter-
section sign at the west end of

Many Cleaners, Polishes, Paints Are



Poisonous and Should be Kept Safe


Did you know that whenever
you clean house, paint the
kitchen, polish the furniture,
wash dishes, or clean a spot
off a piece of clothing that you
most likely are using a
poison?
People never deliberately
go shopping for poisons, but
the fact is that they buy
several every time they go to
the grocery store or market,
warms the Florida Medical
Association.
All too often people are not
aware of the danger or toxic
potential of these everyday
household products because
they do not read or heed the


SR-387 where it intersects with
SR 71 should be relocated to a
position on the right of way
that will give sufficient warn-
ing to motorists entering SR 71
from SR 387. The Road Super-
intendent said he will attend to
this.
The Attorney advised the
Board that he has requested
the U. S. Corp of Engineers to
pump the fill material (sand)
from the entrance to several
sloughs leading away from the
river.
Comm. Davis reported that
unknown persons are contin-
uing to dump garbage on the
Lister Circle Road leading
northerly to the West Arm
from SR 22-A. He said this
road is beginning to actually
look like a garbage disposal
area. He requested the county
to clear up this garbage and
trash.
Mr. Davis advised the
Board that the county should
apply for permit to receive
spoil pumped out of the Apa-
lachicola River. He said that
the U. S. dredge boat cannot
pump anymore sand on the
county property until we re-
ceive a permit. The, Chairman
said an application will be
filed.
The Board voted to hold its
next meeting on November 15,
1976, at 7:30 p.m. for the pur-
pose of closing out any old
business in preparation of


labels, and small children
can't.
Most household agents have
been properly labeled to warn
of dangers and hazards for 10
years, but still many indivi-
duals are unaware of the
dangers, an FMA spokesman
says.
Useful drugs that cure ills or
relieve discomfort also can be
poison to children, particu-
larly through overdose. Drugs
should be administered to
children seriously, not as a
game, and should never be
referred to as candy, doctors
empahsize.
Parents who take regular


seating three new members of
the Board that will take office
at 12:00 p.m. Two of the Com-
missioners-elect beihg present
said that they would take the
oath of office at that meeting
and organize for the new year.
The Board voted to cancel
its regular meeting of Novem-
ber 23, 1976, of the Thanks-
giving weekend.
The Chairman discussed the
bad state of repair of portions
of the Stone Mill Creek County
road. The Road Superinten-
dent was instructed to place
this item on his work list.


medications should do so out
of sight of small children, who
might try to imitate the
parent.
Poison Control Centers are
available to help, but the
problem of accidental home
poisoning will never be elimi-
nated unless parents and those
responsible for the care of
small children create their
own poison control center at
home, the FMA stresses.
Children can be protected
by a responsible parent or an
individual educated and per-
sonally aware of the potential


dangers that the poorly super-
vised child can encounter in
his environment in the home,
or outside the home.
The Florida Medical Asso-
ciation recommends to the
public that a poison preven-
tion chart be taped to the
inside of the door to the bath-
room medicine cabinet for
quick reference. These charts
can be obtained from the
American Medical Associa-
tion.

It's amazing how one tool can brighten your outlook
on lawn and grounds maintenance, while at the same
time giving your lawn or grounds the distinct look of
professional care.
The Weed Eater Needie actually is four tools in one-
a trimmer, an edger, a mower and a sweeper. Needie
cuts away the grass and weeds from trees, fences, rocks,
ditches, borders, patios, bushes, posts and other objects
found in many yards.
The secret is the patented Weed Eater system that
uses specially-treated fishing line to do the cutting. And,
of course, besides being faster and easier to use,
cutting grass with fishing line is also safer. Check
Needie's outstanding features:



O Cuts a big 12" path


O Powered by a rugged % peak
horsepower electric motor


D Approved by both UL and CSA


D Safer because it cuts with fishing line


O Gets to hard-to-reach places easily


o Weighs less than 8 pounds


o Trims, edges, mows and sweeps


o Holds more than 30 feet of cutting line
on easily replaceable spool

WHAT KIND OF TREE SHOULD I
PLANT? Before you decided on the species
and number of trees, it would pay you to get
the advice of a professional forester. Expert;.,
council and assistance from a professional:
forester is available to you-without charge-
through your local Division of Forestry field:
office.::
First you must decide what you want your.
trees to accomplish for you. Make money?-
Make shade? Make beauty? Do you have one
lot, one acre or 100 acres lying idle, or are -
you contemplating a commercial tree plant-:.
ing venture? Or, do you plan to plant a dozen'
trees in your yard? Once you have made
those basic decisions, then your next step
would be to contact your Division of Forestry:
office. In Gulf and Bay Counties, 763-6589. In
Calhoun and Liberty Counties, 674-8073 and in .

Qualifications for FMHA Home



Loans Have Been Changed


Buying anything on credit
usually involves signing a
contract, and that can entan-
gle you with a whole new,
complex, and confusing vo-
cabulary.
Most important, that vo-
cabulary in the contract is
legally binding and enforce-
able.
So you better understand
it.
To help you better under-
stand, we've picked out some
of the terms more commonly
used in credit agreements,
which can have an important
impact on your rights and in-
terests under the contract
you sign.
1) Creditor: the person or
firm extending credit servi-
ces.
2) Acceleration Clause: a
clause allowing the creditor
to ask that all future pay-
ments be made at once if one
or more payments has not
been made when due.
3) Co-Signer: one who
agrees to pay a debt if the
credit user does not,
4) Credit Rating: an ap-
praisal of an individual's
ability and willingness to'
meet credit obligations.
5) Default Charge, also
called Penalty Charge: an
additional charge required
when payments are not
made on time.
6) Finance Charge: the to-


tal cost of the credit; for-
merly called interest, carry-
ing charge, or service
charge.
7) Note: a written promise
to pay a certain sum of mon-
ey at a certain time.
8) Outstanding: still owed.
9) Principal: commonly
known as the amount finan-
ced; or the unpaid price of a
purchase.
10) Refinance: the resche-
duling of payments on an in-
stallment contract.
11) Repossession: forced
or voluntary surrender of
merchandise because of ina-
bility to pay as promised.
12) Terms: conditions
written into a note or con-
tract, such as the amount of
the loan or purchase, bal-
