Gulf County Representative Wil-
liam J. Rish played his ace in the hole
Tuesday at noon in his pitch to secure a
$580,400 appropriation in the coming
session of the Legislature to complete
Sunland Recreation Park on St. Jo-
seph's Peninsula, with a dinner of
mullet, shrimp and raw oysters for the'
members of the Legislature who will be
responsible for voting for .the approp-
riation. Rish~also arranged for a tour of
the present facilities for the legislators.
Among the Legislators attending
the soire at the recreation site. were Ed
Fortune, chairman 'of the'appropria-
tions committee and Earl Dixon of
Jacksonville, sub-committee chairman
of funding for HRS, which operates the
local facility.
2,500 GUESTS
Bob Mathews, with the Division of
Retardation, of Tallahassee, explained
some of the current operation of the
center, accomplishment toward 'the
final goal of construction and. useage of
the facility by clients.in the division.
Mathews told the legislators and
several- guests present that the site
expects to provide beach recreation for
over 2,500 people during the summer.
He said that with present facilities, the
site can furnish recreation funifor only
the patients of Sunland of iMarianna,
and a few clients of other' Sunland
operations in Northwest Florida. He
said that with the $580,400 appropria-
tion, the site can furnish vacation


activities for all clients in north
Florida.
Mathews said the appropriation
would fund phase five of the facility,'
which would construct a central dining
and recreation facility along with four
more cottages, similar to three already
completed and near completion on the
site.
PHASE THREE
Construction is currently winding
down on phase three of the plan, with
phase four scheduled to begin some

.time this summer.
Phase three, which will be ready for
operation for this summer's visitors
includes a dressing room, special
swimming pool, boardwalks and an
underpass under the road leading to the
state park, which will allow.clients to
use both the bay-side and Gulf-side
facilities without the hazard of walking
across the road. The swimming pool
itself is special in that it is a constant
four feet deep, with capabilities to
regulate the water depth. The pool is
equipped so Wheel chair patients can
enter and leave the pool in their wheel
chairs. Wheel chair patients can go'
anywhere on the park site and use all
facilities, including the surf, in their
wheelchairs.,
IS THAT ALL?
One of the Legislators asked the
question, "Is phase five the last


Future Seems to be


phase?" Mathews replied that if the
$580,400 is the last appropriation,'the
facility would serve all of north Florida,
but it would not be large enough to
serve the entire state, which had been
the ultimate aim of the facility at its
inception in 1968.
Legislators were told the Sunland
center had 1,700 visitors in its first year
of operation and ,900 last year, in its
second year of operation. Visitors were
curtailed last year due to the fact
construction was underway during
much of the summer and offered a
danger to prospective visitors.
The park is located on a tract of 98.5
acres on St. Joseph Peninsula.and has
both 'Gulf and bay frontage. The Gulf
side has 4,500 feet of beachfront and has
been developed 'into a beach type
recreation program. The bay side has
940 feet of water frontage and has been
developed more along the camping,
picnicing theme.
There is a year-round custodial
staff at the center, but visiting groups
furnish 'their own staff to tend the
clients needs.
The visiting Legislators didn't give
any indication as to whether or not they
would approve the appropriation re-
quest, but Fortune gave some indica-
tion of their feelings on the matter when
he remarked, ."This area' won't go
lacking as long as Billy Joe is iri office.
He is a true conservative .except
when he wants something for his area."


The :County Commission
faced an unusual 'situation
Tuesday night,. at their regu-
lar meeting, when they were
faced with a court room filled
with people who all wanted the
same thing --the'Emergency
Room atMunicipal Hospital to
remain open. It's a rare
meeting when any controver-.
sial matter comes up and
everyone present wants the
same thing.
The City of Port St. Joe had
previously announced that
they would close the hospital
ER on April 1 after local
doctors notified the governing
board they would no longer
staff the facility after April 1.
Faced with the alternative of
hiring ER doctors or closing
the service, the governing
board said they had no alter-
native except to close, unless
some financial help could be
secured from the county.


This situation is what
,prompted a crowd of over 100
people to show up at the
meeting Tuesday and force
the meeting out of the regular
meeting room and into the
larger court room upstairs in
the Court House.
Ambulance committee
chairman H' T. Anderson
started the pitch for the
Commission to come to the aid
of the hospital by furnishing a
list of alternatives the county
could choose from to keep the
service intact. The suggestion
recommended by the ambu-
lance committee would call
for the county to hire one
emergency room doctor to be
on call at.all times, utilizing
local doctors to cover for the
specialist during the times he
would need to be off. The
committee estimated such a
service would cost around
$65,000 a year.


The : committee recom-
mended in a written statement
that the individual would be
available 24 hours a day by
voice communication with the
hospital. He would also "be
utilized to train the,.county's
volunteer staff of EMT's and
prospects. The special doctor
would not have a private
practice.
The committee had also
investigated the fact of keep- '
ing the service operational
until an emergency room doc-
tor could be obtained. Ander-
son said two of our local
physicians have stated that
perhaps the ER could remain
operational provided imme-
diate positive, action is taken.
QUEST SUCCESSFUL
The quest of the crowd of
citizens to keep the Emergen-
cy Room open seemed to be
successful, with the County
Board agreeing to meet with


the hospital governing board
some of whom were present
to try and arrive at an
agreement by which the ER
will be kept open and operat-
ing. It won't be a spur-of-
the-moment decision to be
arrived at easily, since neither
governing body had funds in
their current budgets to fi-
nance such a service and both
bodies are right in the middle
of a budget year.
County Commission Chair-
man Everett Owens, Jr.,
asked hospital board chair-
man Gerald Sullivan to ar-
range a meeting at the earliest
possible time with the doctors
in the county to try and reach
an agreement for financing
emergency room personnel
and keeping the service op-
erable until special personnel
can be obtained.
The meeting was unique in

an on-site tour of the facilities.
First stop was the Wetstone
and IWS Backup training at
the radar center. The radar's
function is assisting pilots on
missions. Tyndall's responsi-
bility as the eyes for the South-
eastern United States was also
explained as the group went
through the Wetstone depart-
ment and viewed the radar
complex as it watched all air
traffic for this section of the
country.
The flightline was then
visited with the different
planes and their separate
functions being pointed out by
Gasham.
The Training Simulator,
which gives pilots a glimpse at
the mechanics of the differ-
ent planes, was also toured by
the group.
Capping off the tour the
group stopped by the Envi-
ronics Laboratory and were
enlightened on the studies and
effects of chemicals and
waste materials entered into
the environment and how it
would be treated and con-
trolled to nullify its pollutant
qualities.
Attending the tour were
Wanda Brown, Mr. and Mrs.
Bob Fox, Higdon Swatts, Billy
Rich, Wendell Whitaker,
David Roche and Willie Ram-
sey.


County Commissioner Billy
Branch recommended to the
Board Tuesday night that the
county pull out of the North-
west Planning and Advisory
Council and join a new similar
organization being formulated
by Bay County, with Walton
and Gulf proposed as asso-
ciate members in the group.
Branch's suggestion was
short-stopped by chairman
Everette Owens, Jr., who
said, "I want to wait and see
what they come up with before
making any decision to join."
Earlier in the discussion,
Branch asked former Com-
missioner Silas Player, who
had represented the county in
NWFPAC for about six years,
to give his observations about
the matter.
Player had stated that in his
opinion the county would
get very little out of an
alliance with Bay County. He
said, "Bay has been dissatis-
fied for years. They felt that
since they were the largest
county in the district they
should have more representa-
tion. They dominated the old
organization and I feel. they
would do the same in any new
organization". Player said, "I


think you will have a much
better deal to stay where you
are. Bay County is working for
themselves. You would only
receive the crumbs."
Although the county has not
yet paid its dues to NWFPAC.
this year, attorney Rish ad-
vised it appears they are.


bound to do so since they
agreed to be a member of the
organization.
The question raised two
weeks ago by Branch was
whether or not the county is
bound to pay the dues arid if
so, they had just as well spend

Hulks Unsightly


Those of us who live here along
the seacoast are accustomed to
seeing hulks of boats and ships lying .
about along the shoreline where they
have been abandoned to uselessness.
SNo doubt, they are a nuisance
and a hazard to the boater, but to the
occasionall visitor to the seashore,
they are color and local uniqueness.
S We here in Gulf County, who live
by the falling of the pine tree and its
transportation to our paper mill are
accustomed to the services of ano-
ther 'ship" a "ship" of the
*Jighway which hauls wood to the
local mill to use for its product -
,paper.

much local "color" with these ships

Overturned.
With the coming session of the
legislature opening, we can think of
:two things we would like to see


accomplished. Both these things
concern the safety of the rest of us.
We would like to see the chip trucks
slowed down to a sensible speed and
we would like to see some regulation
passed whereby the owners would
remove the hulks from the roadside
when they are wrecked.
Most of the chip trucks which
travel in these parts are very heavy.
If they should have to stop in an
emergency situation, we don't think
they could. It's just a wonder to us
that some car loaded with people
hasn't stopped suddenly in front of a
chip truck in an emergency and been
crushed by the following truck which
couldn't stop because he was travel-
ling so fast.
Their number alongside our
roadways where they have wrecked
and left lying is getting numerous.
Not only are they unsightly, but they
also pose a driving hazard to
highway traffic.
We'd like to see something done
about these things.

I am grateful for the interest

You Can

Discourage

Burglars
"If a burglar decides he
wants to get into your house,
there is no way you can keep
him out", Airman First Class
Elizabeth Tauber, Security
Officer of Tyndall Air Force
Base told the Rotary Club last
Thursday.
Airman Tauber said that
while an experienced burglar
can gain entrance in some
way or other, home owners
should still try to install
adequate locks at each poss-
ible entrance. "If a burglar is
delayed on gaining entrance,
by an adequate lock or some
other device, chances are he
will leave your home alone
and go seeking an easier place
to ply his trade".
Airman Tauber said 'thai
most burglarsin this area are-
amateurs, which makes ade-
quate locks doubly effective in
protecting valuables in the
home.
The security officer sug-
gested dead lock bolts on
doors and windows and even
suggested a special lock avail-
able for sliding glass doors.
"An adequate lock is usually
sufficient since most burglars
won't risk the noise of break-
ing a glass to reach inside.
Some tips for discouraging
burglars and prowlers were
given by Airman Tauber and
included:
Don't hide the door keys on
the premises.
Keep shrubbery trimmed to
remove hiding places.
Make the home look occu-
pied at all times.
Don't confront a burglar if
at all possible.

excessive taxation we receive

have no recreational facili-

There is no entertainment, of
any kind, provided by the city.
We have, in my opinion, one
of the finest beaches that I
have ever seen but, along
most of its length there is no
way an adult can get down to it
without a lot of effort. We have
spent thousands of dollars on

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


It has happened! I've never heard of it
happening before, but it has happened to me. I
saw it with my own eyes.
My pet rock has a baby.
Since the poor little thing was abandoned on
my doorstep and I wasn't much of a rock-ologist,
I didn't really know if it was a female or male.
Sidney Ellis kept trying to get me to bring my
rock over to see his, which he knew to be a male,
for the purpose of seeing how mine reacted to see
what its sex actually was. Since mine was a
thoroughbred Colorado rock and Sidney's was
just a pick-up mongrel rock, I didn't want mine
messing, with his..
I should have let nriie play with the
'preacheri rock. At'liast, there, my rock would
have had exposure to a little decorum. As it is, I
have no idea who or what is the father of my pet
rock's baby. I'm afraid I have to admit that she
is an unwed mother. She has strayed. She has
sown wild oats.
The baby is a pretty thing. It is dark brown in
color and has flecks of fools gold running through
its entire body. That means the father of my
rbck's baby came from the wrong side of the
tracks and lured my rock into a life of sin. If he
had been a real thoroughbred and the rock
equivalent of a gentleman, the baby would have
flecks of real gold in its body.

Letter to the Editor:
The letter stating his views
on the outlook of Mexico

Canadian who has been a tax-
payer here for five years. He
made his retirement home
here seeking peace and quiet.
Instead he found a scene
reminiscent of Dante's In-

A reasonably large con-

from the roadway. Trucks
roaring up and down the street
from 6:30 in the morning till
after dark, Sunday included.
Welding and hammering go-

and cars and repairs of all
descriptions to heavy equip-
ment, and the incessant smell
of oil and gasoline, were all
part of his quiet and peaceful
haven, and to all this the Town
Council, through the City
Clerk, informed him that they
were powerless to act.

above and the fact that he
feels he has been ignored or
treated like an outsider by this
and previous Town Councils.
When some individuals
could speak as long and as
often as they pleased, he was
often ignored or interrupted.
For example: During the
tenure of the last Town Coun-
cil,'when he asked a rather
pointed question on priorities,
the Deputy Mayor Mr. Long
interrupted him and told him
he was a foreigner and had no
right, even though he was a
taxpayer, to speak at any
council meeting. The Mayor
did not call him to order. When
he had the occasion to tele-
phone the present Mayor on a
serious health hazard, the
Mayor asked him if he had a
vote, the Canadian replied
that he was a taxpayer. The
Mayor replied "I don't have to
listen to you". He knew then
that he was truly an outsider
and decided to seek another
vacation home in friendlier
climate.

Even: though the new addition to my rock
family has questionable parentage, we will try to
give it the best home possible for a young,
developing rock.

Bob Simon popped a good one last Tuesday
as he presided over the Kiwanis Club meeting.
Bob,the Kiwanis president, always has a "Simon
Says" bit of philosophy he clips out of a book he
gets, and reads it to the Kiwanis every Tuesday.
Last Tuesday his remarks of wisdom were
original when he quipped, "Congress is busy now
making it legal for you to have marijuana in your
possession and illegal to have saccharine".
That's consistency for you.

Sunday was the first day of Spring for the
year 1977. That made Sunday an auspicious day
for those of us who have suffered through the
worst winter in years.
Sunday was also my birthday, if you want to
think that event adds to its auspiciousness. Or
maybe you would like to consider Sunday a good
day, since it announces the introduction of
spring, in spite of the fact that I was born on that
day a few years back.
I would tell you how old I was on Sunday, but
my Momma plied me with good things to eat in a
birthday dinner Saturday night and bribed me to
secrecy with her home made noodles and
chicken. She killed the fatted hen, baked the pie
and made the rolls and pushed them on my plate
until I had to yell "quit!", with much the same
fervor I used to shout the word when she would
get to working on my paddle target with a
leather strap about two or three times a week.
The reason for the dinner became clear in
due time when she said, "Don't you tell anybody
how old you are. Then they will have a good idea
of just how old I am".
My lips are sealed, Momma: I didn't even
tell Frenchie. She still thinks I'm 29.

out, the temperature warmed and spring beat
spring here by at least a week.
Donnie Lang remarked to me the other
day-one of the more beautiful days we had last
week-"I think I'll play hooky from work this
afternoon and just find a place in the sun to curl
up and take a nap. I have a bad case of the spring
fever."
I can brag. a little here. I never have the
spring fever. I'm immune to those sudden
attacks of lethargy which accompanies the usual
complaints of "having the spring fever".
I never catch the spring fever because I have
it all year 'round.

I try to stay pretty well on top of things and
thought I had it all under control until last week
when Harland Pridgeon broke the news that
automobile tags are due one month prior to the
owner's birthday and are delinquent one-day
after his birthday. Here I was coasting along just
thinking that with the last payment of my income
taxes on April 15, I would be through with taxes
this year until tags come due in July.
Actually, that's when my tag is due, since
my car is listed in the name of the company.
Therefore, the tag isn't due until July. I sure
thought I was going to have to buy a new tag or
two, on top of the multitude of taxes and
insurance I have already been paying every
month since November.
I'm about ready for a rest from-taxes and
insurance.

written in a most unusual and
unique style, a diary on the

ER Future Seems to be Brighter


that everyone wanted the
same thing. The hour and a
half discussion on the matter
was brought about by the fact
that nobody knew exactly how
the financing could be arrang-
ed on such short notice with
short budgets.
Two other suggestions pro-
posed but not recommended
by the ambulance service
committee were to provide
full-time ambulance person-
nel to transfer all emergencies
to Bay Medical Center at an
estimated cost of $33,000 and
4 to contract with part-time
physicians to provide night
and week end service at the
hospital for an estimated cost
of $127,920.
Hospital Board chairman
Sullivan said full time medical
service at the ER would cost
in the neighborhood of $160,000
a year.
The biggest misunderstand-
ing of the meeting was expres-
sed by Wanda Brown, presi-
dent of the Chamber of Com-


merce, Dickie Brown, Mrs.
Beth Fusilier and E. L. Flem-
ing who wondered why the
county's doctors couldn't con-
tinue to serve the ER as they
had been in the past.
Sullivan explained that the
doctors had explained they
just weren't able to do so,
physically from the standpoint
of time and energy. Sullivan
said the doctors had said they
just didn't have the time any
more, even if they were to be
paid to do so. Sullivan, Ander-
son and Dick Lamberson, Port
St. Joe ambulance squad chief
explained that the doctors
were too over-worked to pro-
vide the ER service in addi-
tion to their regular services
in view of their age and
physical condition.
Mrs. Brown remarked, "If
we don't have the emergency
room, we don't have much
need for the hospital".
Ken Herring observed, "I'm
here because I do not want the
emergency room to close and


not to argue with you why it is
or isn't closing. There is no
easy answer and it won't be
solved tonight. I would sug-
gest you get with the City
Commission and see if you
can't come up with a solution.
Bob Phillips made a telling
point as he cradled his artifi-
cial right arm in his left hand
and asked, "Have any of you
ever needed the ER to save
your life? I have, and I was
glad it was there when I
needed it."
Mrs. Fuselier said, "It will
take approximately one mill
for the county to pay for this
service." She felt money now
being "wasted" in other
places could be spent on
medical services.
Sullivan made an offer that
the City would pick up half of
the ER expense if the county
would pick up the other half
and estimated it would cost
each around $40,000 a year.
Sullivan's offer wasn't im-


mediately accepted, but it will
probably be the starting point
of negotiations between the
two governing bodies in meet-
ings which should get under-
way some time early next
week.
If the feeling of Tuesday
night's meeting continues, it
seems to be only a matter of
time until solution of the
problem is arrived at and a
way found to keep the service
intact.


be turned in by that date. They
would like to remind the
public that these box tops will
be redeemed by the Post
Cereal Company for play-
ground and physical fitness
equipment.
At the present time, the
school has collected a little
over 1,400 box tops. This
amount can be exchanged for
only a minimal order of equip-
inent. Everyone's coopera-
tion is urged, for the more box
tops collected, the greater
amount of equipment can be
provided for the students.

Windy

Hiways

Tricky

Wind gusts on open high-
ways can cause tricky steer-
ing and loss of control for
motorists the Florida High-
way Patrol cautioned this
week.
Colonel Eldrige Beach,
director, of the Patrol said,
"Gusty winds which can be
expected this time of year are
definite traffic hazards.
Strong gusts of cross winds on
the open highway can force a
vehicle off 'the roadway', or
across the center line, espec-
ially small light-weight auto-
mobiles, motorcycles and
mobile home trailers."
Drivers should be alert for

locations along the highway
which are possible danger
spots where they might expect
the effects of cross winds.
Likely spots are bridges and
heavily wooded areas which

Caladiums Are An Easy Way to Brighten Up Your Home


Both color and dimension
can be added to the home
flower garden with the selec-
tive use of caladiums.
Caladiums are tropical foli-
age plants and are Tropical
American in origin, with a
large portion of them coming
from the Amazon basin in
Brazil. -
Two different types of cala-
diums are available. These
include the fancy and lance
leaves types. The most popu.
lar and familiar is the fancy
leaved caladium. Large,
somewhat rounded leaves are
characteristic of this type.
The distinguishing character-
istic of the lance leaved type is
a narrow, elongated leaf. The
length of the leaves is similar
t6 the fancy leaved type but
the plants are usually'more
dwarfin stature.
Caladiums add a cool look to
the summer garden and are
easy to grow, providing the


gardener observes a few basic
growth guidelines. Plant the
caladium tuber in moderate-
ly rich well-prepared soil in a
shaded. or partly shaded loca-
tion. Soils for caladiums
should be porous and contain
organic matter. These condi-
tions insure aeration,- drain-
age, and sufficient water-
holding capacity for proper
growth. To obtain these soil
conditions it is generally nec-
essary to amend either clay or
sandy soils with organic mat-
ter. Sources of organic matter
include coarse peat moss, well
rotted manure, or well rotted
leaf mold.
The caladium is rugged, but
it will not tolerate the full
summer sun. For best results,
plant caladiums in a semi-
shaded location. From 40 to 60
percent shade is considered
ideal. The fancy leaved vari-
eties can be used in areas
exposed to full sun for one to


two hours per day, preferably lizer (8-8-8) per 100 square feet
in the cooler morning hours. (two teaspoons per square
Longer exposure destroys the foot) is suggested. Thereafter,
chlorophyll in the leaves and apply one pound of 8-8-8 ferti-
limits growth. Overexposure lizer per 100 square feet (1

needed for leaf production.
There is a wide choice of
colors in selecting caladiums
for the yard. The popular
candidum and White Christ-
mas varieties are white with
strongly contrasting green
veins. These varieties bright-
en shaded areas and are
particularly handsome when.
interspersed with white ger-
aniums, white petunias, vari-
egated vinca or hydrangea.
:Popular pink or rose colored
leaves appear on such vari-
eties as Lord Derby, Pink
Cloud, Kathleen, Rose bud,
Carolyn Wharton and others.
.Crimson Wave has a showy
criimsn crinkled center. Red
is found in the Blaze, John
Peed, 'Red Flair and Freda
Hemple varieites. Dark green
veins and borders give added
accent to the red' leaves.
Spangled Banner has red
glowing leaves with pink
spots;


Caladiums are also easy to
grow in a pot or tub for.a
shaded spot on the patio or in
an entrance area. When in
pots, the thirsty plant will call
for extra watering due to the
drying of the pot during the
summer.
Whether in a container, in
masses or as border material


this popular summer annuAl'
will provide color accent to the
home garden all summer long
for little cost and upkeep.

Note: Caladium bulbs in
many of the above named
varieties are available at The
Star. You may place your
order by calling 227-3161.
