Gulf County's Solid Wastes
Study Committee reported to
the County Commission Tues-
day after nearly three months
of deliberations on a possible
solution to the county's de-
lemma over what to do with
solid wastes.
The committee got in under
the July 1 deadline set by the
Department of Environmental
Regulation, which wants a
different method of disposal
initiated as soon as possible.
While the committee's rec-
ommendation may or may not
be accepted as the route to be
followed by the county, the
plan meets the DER require-
ments to have a plan present-
ed for study by July 1.
Indications are that the DER
will accept the plan presented
whether the county does or
not. The Commission may
study other methods of dispo-
sal before arriving at a final
decision.
Tommy Pitts, chairman of
the eight man committee
made up of representatives
from government groups and
industry representatives in
the county have come up with
S a plan which will utilize only
one land fill operation in the
county-the new land fill re-
cently opened near Buckhorn,
north of Wewahitchka.
The committee's plan calls
for operation of the one land
fill in conjunction with one
compactor station in the Port
.'.-,: St. Joe area. Those who lived
'\ i,.. outside a municipality with its
'garbage pick-up service would
S need to contract with a private
collector or haul their garbage
S either to the Buckhorn site or
to the compactor in the Port
St. Joe area.
.g. Presently, the county oper-
ates several land fill facilities
and Harold throughout the county, with
-Star photo one just a few miles from


every residence.
Pitts said compacted gar-
bage would be transported to
the land fill site from the Port
St. Joe compactor each day
and buried.


Making up the planning
committee were Pitts, Wil-
liam R. Branch, Mike Wright,
Dorton Hadden, Ed Band-
jough, Lewis-Taylor, George
Wimberly and A. O. Boyette.


Ramsey Wins, 430 to


374 Over Williams
Only 30 percent of the registered electors went to the
polls Tuesday and cast their ballots in what was expected to
be a short vote count, with.only one contest on the ballot in the
municipal election. The voting was to decide one commission:
seat for the next two years. -
Of the 2,627 eligible to cast ballots in municipal voting,
only 794 turned out to exercise their vote and a third of those-
ballots were cast after 5:00 p.m., after a downpour of rain
which began around 2:00 p.m., and continued off and on until
nearly 4:00 p.m.
Incumbent Wesley R. Ramsey won re-election for: a,
second two year term in the two-man contest, which saw:,
newcomer Sammie Williams poll a respectable vote in his-
initial attempt at election to a local office.
Ramsey polled 421 of the regular votes cast and picked
up nine of the 10 absentee votes which had been cast prior to
election day. Williams polled 373 of the machine ballots and"
one absentee. When all votes were tallied by the election
officers, Ramsey had 430 to win and Williams had 374 in a
good effort.
The voting Tuesday started off slowly, with only 160
votes cast at 1:00 p.m.
Ramsey wtllbe sworn In to his new term of office at the'
first meeting of the Commission in June.



Dismissal Time Changed


Due to a re-arrangement of
bus schedules, students at
Port St. Joe Elementary
School will be dismissed at
2:05 p.m. The new school time
will become effective begin-
ning Thursday, May 12.
Under the new schedule,
elementary bus students will
be picked up in the afternoons
before the high school stu-
dents. In the past the reverse


was true. All students will
continue to receive the same
amount of classroom instruc-
tion time. The schedule at
Port St. Joe High School will
not be affected.
Elementary students who
live in North Port st. Joe will
arrive home earlier under this
schedule. Parents should
check with bus drivers for
approximate times of arrival.


Liquor Dealers Fail In Bid



for Longer Business Hours


Owners of businesses serv-
ing liquor on Highway 98
failed to get a move initiated
to approve extension of their
operating hours Tuesday. The
merchants, Wayne Smith, op-
erator of the St. Joe Bowling
Lanes and Lounge and Mrs.
John Hanson, operator of the
Wonder Bar, asked that they
be allowed to stay open until.
2:00 a.m., in order to compete
with the Bay county dealers at
Uexico Beach who are allow-
ed to stay open until 3:00 a.m.,
EST.
Petitioning the County Com-
mission for the extended
hours, the dealers put up a
plea that the shorter hours are
causing them an economic


hardship.
Commissioner Otis Davis,
Jr., made the motion to con-
sider extending the hours and
his motion was seconded by
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man. During the discussion,
which revealed that the mo-
tion would only place the
question before the Board at a
later date for discussion by
those who wished to appear
pro or con on the question,
Gortman removed his second
and the motion died.
Rev. Bill Stephens, pastor of
the Highland View Baptist
Church offered his objections
to the motion to consider the
extension of hours. "We only
learned about this attempt in


the past day or two", he said,
"but already I have about 66
people who have signed a
paper opposing the extension
of hours." Stephens suggested
moving the sale hours back to
a midnight closing time, as the
state requires where local
option does not set a different
time.
Smith then put in a pitch for
extending the hours during the
summer months only. "Real-
ly, we need the extra hour only
.on Friday and Saturday
nights. We have bands in on
those nights, and-they cost
money. We need a little more
time to recover our expen-
ses."
The Board still wouldn't
budge and left the bar opera-
tors with a 1:00 a.m. curfew on
sales.
Commissioners Branch and
Leo Kennedy then said they
would be willing to work for a
legislative act which would
require all of Gulf County to be
on Central or Eastern time,
thus giving the operators a
little more relief, by making
their closing time to more
closely coincide with the Bay
county operators.
DIRT SETTLED
At the last meeting, the
Commission balked at paying
$14,000 to remove muck and
haul in new dirt at the new
library under construction
here in Port St. Joe. The
Commission had an estimate
from their architect that this
phase of the project would cost
approximately $10,000. The


Board thought the rendered
bill was too high and question-
ed whether an accurate mea-
surement had been made of
the dirt in question.

Gaskin and builder Henry

The drought in Port St. Joe
was partially broken Monday
and Tuesday, when rains
came for the first time in more
than a month.
According to our unofficial
official weather man, Bill
Simmons, the Port St. Joe
area received two-tenths of an
inch rain early Monday before
daylight and Tuesday after-
noon, the area had 1.7 inches.
Again, according to. Sim-
mons, Port St. Joe received
exactly one inch of rain during
the entire month of April. On
April 22, one-tenths of an inch
teased the parched lawns and


gardens and on April four,
nine-tenths of an inch of
precipitation fell for the last
sizeable shower before Tues-
day's rains.
Along with the rain came
some hail, reported in Ward
Ridge, and gusts of wind, one
of which up-rooted a large
willow tree in the front yard of
'Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Lyons, Jr.,
of 16th Street.
No other appreciable dam-
age was reported from the
storm, which brought an
abundance of thunder and
lightning with it.

In other business, the Com-
mission:
-Accepted a bid from St.
Joe Motor for two deisel
powered dump trucks with the
stipulation that the trucks be
equipped with Cummins en-
gines.
-Agreed to commit the
county for $2,000 as a share of
initiating a service to aid aged
persons throughout the coun-
ty. The request was made by
Mrs. Mary Elliott, who stated
the cities of Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka were pledging
like amounts to the operation.
-Put off opening bids for

surance until Monday evening
at 7:00 a.m., to assist local
companies in having time to
work up their bids.
-Accepted a plat for "Whis-
pering Pines" subdivision in

Charles Cleckley with the
stipulation that road require-

-Received a letter from
DOT acknowledging a request
to designate road C-30 around
the coast as a primary road
and under the nomenclature,
"Scenic 98 Route". The letter
said the DOT declined the

-A letter from the Justice
Department said a team

-The Board was authorize$

Water and Sewer system.


The kind lady, then took an unkind cut and
said, "You should be ashamed of how you rib
Frenchie in the paper. She ought to whale the tar
out of you".
This stung, since I do so much for Frenchie.
She enjoys bringing me the paper in bed of a
morning, and at least a couple mornings a week,
I'll allow her to do so. She enjoys bringing me a
cool drink at night while I read the paper with
one eye and watch a snatch of television with the
other eye. She likes to tell me I have no sense of
color when I am getting dressed and is
continually nagging me for the combinations of
colors or patterns I put on. I just look at a
garment and see if it is clean or not. I'm not too
concerned with the color. But, I allow her to do
her number and tell me what to wear.
Sometimes I change and other times I don't have
time. She gets a kick out of that.
So you see, Mrs. Murdock, I don't treat her
too badly, I let her do just about as she pleases.
Too, I even purchased her a mother's day
present over the week end, even though she isn't
my mother. I just did it out of the goodness of my
heart, to make her happy. I bought her a water
pump and had it gift wrapped, so she could have
the enjoyment of opening it on Mother's Day and
having something with which to water her
flowers.

From the way the wind is blowing from
Tallahassee, it's almost a sure bet it will cause a
squall which will mean an additional penny on
the sales tax or remove tax exemptions on
everything except groceries, medicine and
doctor bills. If the rumors are correct, removal
of loop-holes would have everything else taxed
by sales tax levies, including gasoline, rents, the
price of your daily newspaper and the advertis-
ing which goes into it. All other services and
labor for services other than the call to your
doctor will be taxed.
This hefty increase is in light of the estimate
that normal increases in business and price
increases will bring in $140 million more from
sales taxes for the next budget year than is being
collected in the current year.
It would seem to us that such an increase
should be kept in reserve until it's really needed
rather than levy it now when the state is getting
along with funds available to pay for most of the
things we need and want.
If the members in the Legislature are half as
smart as they told us they were at election time,
they will be able to shift priorities and fund
necessary items as needed with our present
revenues.

Seek Help for Your Child


IfHe Doesn't Develop


By: Mrs. Cathy Hanlon
Chairman of Public Relations
GARC
Last week I told you about
some of the warning signs that
might indicate your child has
a special need. Fortunately
many of these conditions can
be helped or completely cor-
rected IF parents recognize
the problem early and seek
help. Your failure to recognize
and deal with a problem early
may result in an unnecessary
life-long handicap.
Seek help for your child if he
cannot say "Mama" or "Da-
da" by-age one; cannot say
the names of a few toys and
people by age two; cannot
repeat-'common rhymes or
T.V. jingles by age three; or is
not understood by people out-
side the family by age five.
Seek help if your child does
not react to his-her own name,
when called, by age one; is
unable to identify hair, eyes,

BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT

THE REASONS AMERICANS SHOULD BE
CONCERNED ABOUT BLASPHEMY IN THE MEDIA

Like any irreligious outrage, blasphemy should affront all decent persons, and so much the more those who are actively religious.
When blasphemy becomes commercialized and is financially successful, it breeds more of itself. It is copied. It spreads and
poisons. America today desperately needs God and reverence for religious values. Blasphemy is the ultimate sin against God.
When the motion picture industry has offered the utmost in sexual stimulation and violence, what remains? How do they
top it ? Perhaps only by blaspheming God, for a price, of course !
Great Britain currently faces bankruptcy. Former Prime Minister McMillian has warned that unless Britons unite and put an
end to their problems, the United Kingdom may face either Communist Revolution or dictatorship.
The famed agnostic historian, Lecky, long ago observed that it was the Wesleyan religious revival which spared England the
bloody social revolution which had swept over France. Regretfully, that Wesleyan revival has run down. In Britain today less
than 5% of the people attend church. The British Broadcasting System, in dropping its daily radio devotional, gave as a reason,
"Britain is no longer even nominally a Christian nation." The spiritual decline of Great Britain has been accompanied by other
areas of decline. We believe that the economic and spiritual conditions of Britain are related. They contain a stern lesson for,
America. England has ignored what British poet laureate Rudyard Kipling foresaw before the turn of the century:
God, under whose awful hand we hold dominion over palm and pine...
Far-called our navies melt away -
On dune and headland sinks the fire -
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre !
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget Lest we forget !
Rudyard Kipling -Recessional
America is in real danger of following down the dismal road upon which Britain has traveled economically, socially, and
spiritually. If irreligious and public blasphemy is supported here it will harm all religions and in time the nation. It will place
one more false rationalization in the minds of young people who lack the intellectual maturity to justify religious doubts which
the blasphemers exploit for profit.
We do not believe in censorship nor government banning of freedom of speech but, were we Christians to allow commercial-
ized blasphemy to go unchallenged, unprotested, and unexposed, we certainly would be partially guilty for the harvest of sinful
unbelief which would soon be reaped in this nation.
America officially proclaims, "In God We Trust" and pledges "One Nation under God. But if the blasphemers-for-profit
have their way, God's name and character will be the object of derision, degradation, and rejection. The sinless Son of God, our
Lord Jesus, will be shamefully portrayed as either a deceptive, wild-eyed, Charles Manson-type revolutionist, a homosexual or
bi-sexual swinger who is not the moral paragon Christians universally accept Him to be.
How can a person, old or young, who sees this kind of blasphemous movie on Saturday night then the next morning go to
church and worship God in Jesus' name ? No one can say that the spread of commercialized blasphemy will not leave indelible
marks on the minds of those who are exposed.to it.

WHAT MUST BE DONE
We urge concerned citizens to avoid contributing their support to sacrilegious themes in movies, television, radio, and other
forms of public media. Attempts to commercialize blasphemy should be actively protested. We do not believe in censorship
nor government banning of the freedom of speech. No actively religious person would allow himself to engage in acts of
violence or property damage. We simply believe that if the profit is removed from these commercialized attempts at blasphemy,
they will, of their own accord, disappear.
Here are positive things to do:
1. Write "letters-to-the-editor" expressing your concern
2. Phone in to radio talk shows and state your concern
3. Solicit statements from community leaders and public figures in your city
4. Local &d Hoc Committees should be formed in each community to oppose public blasphemy
5. Request equal time on public media where actors or producers of sacrilegious material have been favorably received.
6. Churches should take a stand on blasphemy in the media because it deals with matters of christian doctrine. Require
your minister to do so.
7. Support organizations which work against public blasphemy
Be assured of the fact that commercialized blasphemy is just starting. If it is profitable to the blasphemer, we will see wide-
spread proliferation of these shameful themes, with genuine harm to all religions, and, in time, to the nation.

From the American
Medical Association
Plants of the poison ivy
family are likely the single
most often encountered cause
of painful, itchy skin rash in
the United States today.
This family of plants can
grow in the great variety of
conditions of soil, water and
sun present in all states of the
nation. There are several vari-
eties, all causing the same
trouble.
Poison sumac is a shrub or
small tree. The others are
vines. Except for the sumac,


all are marked by three leaf-
lets arising from the node.
Remember the old saw:
"Leaflets three, let it be."
Washing with soap and
water soon after exposure
mightly help reduce the skin
rash, the American Medical
Association says. Cold water
compresses will bring relief
from itching and reduce in-
flammation. Calamine lotion
will hasten drying of the blis-
ters. Extensive and severely
uncomfortable eruptions may
require medications pres-
cribed by a physician.

The only method for pre-
venting poison ivy rash is
avoiding the plants. There is
no effective skin protectant or
immunizing technique. The
plants can be dug out, or


destroyed by herbicides.
Actually, poison ivy is mis-
named. It isn't really a poi-
son. It is an allergen, which
causes the body's defense
mechanisms to over-react.


First exposure might not pro-
duce a rash, but later expo-
sures will trigger the reaction.

When an employer contacts
the local office requesting
assistance in filling a job
vacancy, an immediate
search of the files is made,
comparing the employer's re-
quirements with the qualifi-
cations of workers who are
seeking employment. These
applicants have been inter-
viewed and classified accord-
ing to their experience, spec-
ial training, and education.
Additional considerations of
the applicant's classification
include aptitude or potential
for doing the job and interest

referred. The decision to hire
or not to hire is up to tlie
employer.
The Florida State Einploy-
