A proposed perpetual care
cemetery for. Port St. Joe
advanced from the talking
stage to the initial action .stage
Tuesday night, as the City
Commission instructed acting
attorney Fred Witten to draft
a sample ordinance for the
Commission's next meeting.
The perpetual care ceme-
tery has been a pet project of
Mayor Frank Pate for nearly,
a year and was one of his
platforms announced when he
started his latest term last
After discussing the subject
for some time Tuesday night,

the Commission came up with,
a tentative 'plan which would
govern ways of burial in the
cemetery, limit headstones
and decorations, and provide
for perpetual care at no
further expense to the families
involved. Initial cost of a lot at
the cemetery, which would-
include all future care would
be $200.00.

The Commission also asked
Witten to make provisions for
a mausoleum in the ordinance,
which wo 4d also be built on
the site. Tentative plans are to
reserve a 10 acre site adjacent
to the present cemetery for,

the new facility.
In the new cemetery, there
would be no construction
above ground level, probably
no headstones and no shrubs
or' plants other than those
planted' by the City to beautify
the cemetery property. The
entire .facility would be so
designed 'that maintenance
would consist mostly of mow-
ing the grass with no obstruc-
tions jutting into the air to
interfere with the mowing
No final action has been
taken on this idea as yet, but it
has advanced just a bit beyond
the talking stage.

Water Department In Red

Clerk Mike Wright Says Service Charge Hike Needed

City Clerk Mike Wright told
,'the City Commission Tuesday
night that some considera-
tions need to be given to the
water, sewer and garbage
departments and the charges
made for these utilities.
Wright said that thus far
this year, the water depart-
ment has needed subsidies of
$20,000 in the first eight
months of the fiscal. year.
Wright said, "It will probably
take, at least a 15c per thou-
sand gallon increase in price
in order for the department to
operate on its own and take
care of its capital expenditure
needs." Wright pointed out
that, at present, the city
charges 70c per thousand for

water and a surcharge of 60
percent to take care of sewer
Wright pointed out, "You
only earn an average of 41.
percent of your water charges
in the sewer department,
since about a third of the
water sold is to commercial
customers without the sewer
charge added". This water is
sold to customers such as St.
Joe Paper Company and Syl-
vachem, who do not dump into
the city sewer system.
Wright presented a financial
plan to the Commission to
study, with several options
outlined and the effect they
would have on the financial
picture of the services.

The clerk was asked if the
water expansion program,
currently underway wouldn't
save money in the water
department. He said it would,
but completion of the im-
provements and any financial
relief they may offer is at least
a year to 18 months in the

The Commission agreed
Tuesday to finance and oper-
ate its annual summer work
and play program, which will
furnish supervised summer

The summer program will
be directed by Bill Barlow,
Clarence Monette and Mrs.

JayceesWin Eight Awards

At State Convention

Seven Port St. Joe Jaycees,
including Larry McArdle,
Donnie Maddox, Steve Kra-
mer, Ray Butler, Marshall
Nelson, Ed Larrabee and Abe
Miller were in Tampa this
past'weekend to attend the
Florida State Jaycee Conven-
tion. During the. convention

the local club was well re-
warded for all its hard work
during the past year.
The club had eight entries
for state judging and came
home with three first place
awards, three second place
awards and two third place
awards. One of the third place
awards was received for their
Giesenbier entry, which is fdfo
overall excellency, and this is
the first time any of the"
present day Jaycees can re-
member ever having a year
where they were qualified
even to file an entry in this
One of the first place awards
resulted from the work for
Muscular Dystrophy last
spring and summer when the
club raised $1,090.00 for the
Jerry Lewis MD Telethon.
This money will be credited to
Gulf County for its use. The
Florida Jaycees raised $150,-
000.00 for MD state-wide this
past year. In addition to their
project awards, the Jaycees
received an award for Chapter
Management and "Thumbs
Up Florida Jaycees" T-shirts
and pins for the Wakulla
County Jaycees extension.
During the noon luncheon on
Saturday, Exhausted Rooster,
Abe Miller, was awarded a

JCI Senatorship, which is the
highest award any Jaycee can
receive for their years of
dedication and service to their
community and their fellow-
men. This is an award that
every Jaycee dreams of some-
day receiving and Abe was a
very shocked young man when
JCI Senatorship No. 23576 was
awarded to him. In addition to
the JCI Senatorship, Abe was
presented a plaque by the out-
,going State Jaycee President,
'Charlie Perrone, for being in
the top 10 percent of all local
club presidents state-wide
during the year.
Overall the local club is well
pleased with the work their
organization has done this
past year, but all the awards
and recognition they received
in Tampa are secondary to the
joy they have received all
year in carrying out the
various projects as a service
to their community and to
their fellowmen.
The local club said their
success can only be as good as
the support of the commun-
ity, and they are fortunate to
live in one that really cares.
The local club is looking for-
ward to working very dili-
gently in the community dur-
ing the coming Jaycee year.

Four Injured In Saturday Afternoon Crash

This mustang met its maker against a palm tree on Highway 98 Monday afternoon,
after skidding while trying to pass the van which is shown at the car's back.

Two Vehicles Damaged

Four persons were injured,
two seriously, in a one-car
accident late Saturday after-
noon here in Port St. Joe. In
Bay Memorial Center in ser-
ious condition is Bessie H.
Floyd, age 72, of Apalachicola
and in a Pensacola hospital in
critical condition is Abraham
Hines. 53. also of Avalachi-

cola. Hines was first transfer-
red to Bay Memorial Medical
Center then on to Pensacola.
Treated at Port St. Joe
Municipal Hospital were Ni-
cole Davis, age 5, and Otis Lee
Davis, 24, both of Panama
'City. They have since been
released from the hospital.
According to Port St. Joe

Police Department investiga-
tors, Davis was driving the
1973 sedan and apparently got
in the wrong lane on Highway
98 and failed to make the
curve in front of the First
United Methodist Church. The
car, containing the four, cros-
sed the traffic pattern and
struck a palm tree on the

church property, causing the
car to turn over.
Gulf County Ambulance Ser-
vice Rescue Squad removed
the victims from the car and
the Volunteer ambulance
crew took them all to Port St.
Joe Municipal Hospital for
The car skidded for 93 feet

before striking the palm tree.
Police Department officials

Investigating the accident
were Port St. Joe Patrolmen
Bob Lightfoot and Oscar Jones
and Florida Highway Patrol-
man Bill Godwin.

Cary Kent of Panama City,
received minor leg injuries
Monday afternoon, when he
lost control of his 1972 Mus-
tang on Highway 98, two miles
west of Highland View and
skidded into a palm tree
beside the highway.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol Trooper Bill God-

win, Kent was travelling to-
ward Panama City, his home,
and started to pass a 1974 van
driven by Billy Joe Richter of
Beacon Hill. The Kent car left
the shoulder of the road and
Kent lost control as he tried to
bring his car back on the
highway. The car began to
skid and turned sideways in

the lane beside the Richter
van, locking the Mustang rear
bumper into the van's front
bumper. Both machines skid-
ded for 280 feet before the
Mustang struck the palm tree
and was totally demolished.
Trooper Godwin charged
Kent with failure to have his
vehicle under control.

Lest the people of Gulf County
think the plan accepted by the
County Commission last week for
garbage disposal is just how the new
system will operate, let us hasten to
say that it is not necessarily so. It
could be the final plan, but the plan
as presented was the first draft
hammered out to get a plan to the
Department of Environmental Reg-
ulation prior to the July 1 deadline,
set by DER. There may, and will/
probably be, some changes made
before the final plan is adopted."
We hope so. To have only one
land fill site in the county and only
two places where the people can
carry their own trash to dump (the

land fill site in the extreme north end
of the county)- can .rcuseproblems,
we don't feel the-coiunty or DER can
cope with. We hope there are some
modifications to allow more conven-

carry off their own trash when they

how the money was dispensed. Now
the Feds are going to come looking
over our shoulder, looking at the
records, to see if the money was
spent properly. All three govern-

We would hope there would be
some green collection boxes placed
strategically throughout the county
to serve as a dumping site for our
people. We hope this because, even
with the convenientiland fill sites we
now have operating, our people have
proven very slothful in the disposal
of their garbage. Any old empty lot
or hidden corner seems to serve just
as well as the convenient land fill
sites. With these disposal areas
reduced to one and a collection site,
we can already, see the garbage

week by those who Will come. Since
the reports have already been filed,
why are the inspectors going to
waste their time and our money
coming to look over the books?
What can they learn in this manner
they haven't already been told?
Federal revenue sharing money
has been coming into Gulf County
since 1972. Projects on which it could
be spent are regulated and expendi-
tures must approved before they can
be made. We are holding our breath
expecting to find that some of the
uses of the federal revenue money,
although approved at the time, will
now be found to be not according to
Washington and one or maybe all the
county governments may be forced
to repay some of the funds they have
received and spent.
We're just suspicious that way.

Mr. Wesley Ramsey,
Editor, The Star
Port St. Joe, Florida 32456
Dear Wesley:
As you are probably well
aware by now, Gulf County
has recently been forced into
making some drastic changes
to our solid waste disposal
operation. State rules, as esta-
blished by the Department of
Environmental Regulation,
require that five of our six
landfills be closed down, with
Buck Horn near the northern
county line remaining in oper-
ation. Realizing that this situ-
ation had the potential for
causing great hardship and
expense to the citizens of our
county and cities, the Board of
County Commissioners select-
ed a committee to study the
alternatives available to us
with instructions to select the
most workable and most eco-
nomical solution. I attempted
to balance the committee
membership with representa-
tives from both public and
private enterprise and the
following members were
Gulf County-William R.
Branch, Commissioner and
Tommy Pitts, Mosquito Con-
trol Director;

Frenchie and I took a little trip last week
end. We went down to Leesburg Thursday and
Friday and returned home Saturday morning.
I attended a day and half meeting of the
Board of Directors of the Florida Baptist
Convention, of which I was appointed a member
for a three year term this year. We. met at the
Baptist facility at Lake Yale, a teaching and
meeting facility on the banks of Lake Yale which
reminded me in size of Lake Wimico. The only
problem was that didn't ave tim to,%etOa book
and see if Lake Yale could match Lake Wimico

We got there at 1:30 Thursday afternoon and
checked into the facilities there and I went right
to a meeting at 2:00. I got out at 8:30. The next
morning, we started meeting again at 7:00 in the
early morning, took 30 minutes for lunch and
adjourned at 3:00.
That was a typical Baptist meeting; all
meeting and no recreation.

organizational meeting in Jacksonville back in
January. I never knew the business of a
statewide organization like the Baptist Conven-
tion was so big. All of that time spent in meeting
was just one business item right after the other.
We had a two page agenda and a big manila
envelope of background material on each item
we had to read in advance and be familiar with.
It's quite a job. What I'm still trying to figure
out is, how did I get put on this board?

Friday afternoon, after adjournment, we
drove back to Chiefland-where a former "Devil"
of The Star, way back in the 50's owns a
newspaper and central printing plant. Mr. and
Mrs. Walter Wilson were our hosts. Walter went
to school here in Port St. Joe and we started
ruining him to the mysteries of printing ink here
at The Star when he was just a mean youngun.
He took to it pretty well and is now doing good
there in Chiefland.
Walter and his wife took Frenchie and I
down to Cedar Key Friday evening for supper at
a rustic (that's 'French' for 'junky') old
restaurant out on an old abandoned wharf for a
seafood dinner to end all seafood dinners, We
started out with a seafood chowder. Then the
waitress brought a huge platter of stone crab
claws and boiled shrimp. The third course was a
huge platter of fried scallops, oysters, shrimp
and mullet along with a swamp cabbage salad.
If you think all that won't stick to your ribs,
you're just mistaken.
The seafood tasted good going down, but it
sure played heck with my determination to cut
down on my food intake in order to shed two or
three pounds.
Cedar Key reminded me of Apalachicola;
it's strictly a fishing town but lately they have
become acquainted with tourists and their easy
dollar. Cedar Key is now a fishing town and a
"color" town which offers its unique appearance
to the tourists in exchange for a buck or two.
We enjoyed it.

One thing I didn't enjoy last week were the
lies spread about me in North Port St. Joe in an
.effort to win the City Commission election.
Mind, I'm not saying who did it, because I
don't know. I just didn't appreciate them.
We found out Tuesday that the people of
North Port St. Joe were told by someone or some
group that I was a big member of the Ku Klux
Klan. In the first place, I don't think the KKK
would have me as a member, knowing my
philosophy that everyone should be treated as a
human being. Next, saying I was a member of
the Ku Klux Klan is like saying UN Ambassador
Andrew Young is.a member of KKK. One of us is
about as likely to join as the other.
Then the rumor was spread that I, as editor
of this newspaper never printed blacK obituaries
on the front page of this newspaper: only white.
We have printed several black obituaries on the
front page and can prove it with copies of the
paper (printed in black and white, if you please).
Hardly any newspaper prints obituaries, as
such, on the front page any more, black or white.
Neither do we. If the person is a prominent or
extremely active person, we do; otherwise, we
do not.
I'm not guilty of either of these direct
falsehoods; neither am I a hyprocrite. I don't
claim to be one thing while I'm privately

clean up the grounds around
the building as well as the
inside, as part of the re-
quirement for getting to use
the facilities. Childers said
that at dances, especially, the
grounds are littered with bot-
tles and cans from beverages
"the kids are not allowed to
take inside". He also pointed
out that some of the trash,
cans and bottles is thrown on
the Museum grounds across
the street.
Attorney Witten pointed out
that there was a state law
.against consuming alcoholic
beverages on state property
and in littering on the grounds.
.The Commission agreed
with Childers that the Cen-

some people and decided to
refuse future use of the build-
ing to persons or organizations
who leave the grounds in an
unsightly condition.
Childers also asked for

A County Ordinance

.Requires Hook-up

Gulf County now has an ordinance which regulates the
setting-up of mobile homes throughout the county. The
ordinance requires that an inspection be made of electrical,
plumbing and structural set-ups before they are approved for
Even with the new ordinance, many mobile home owners
ignore the rules and set their homes up themselves without
getting the proper approval. If they are caught, the
ordinance contains a clause for applying a penalty to the
home owner.
Some homes in the past were set up in flagrant violation
of good practice, which caused the county to pass the
ordinance in the first place. These pictures were made this
week of such a set-up near Douglas Landing, located by
county sanitarian N. C. Schweikert. Note in the picture above
how the sewer outfall pipe just runs off into the woods on top
of the ground. The raw sewage eventually found its way into
a creek where people fished every day. In the photo at left,
the sewer pipe is shown where it was laid across the ground
at the rear of the trailer. Note the piece of perforated pipe in
the foreground where the liquid sewage could drain out on the
surface. There was no septic tank involved in the set-up.
Schweikert said his office doesn't want to cause anyone a
hard time and if people will call the Health Department they
will receive ample instructions in the proper way to set up
their mobile home so it will pass inspection.

American Home Owners Throw Away Good Fertilizer

The American home owner
throws away much of the ferti-
lizer that he uses around the
home on his grass, says Flor-
ida Nurserymen and Growers
Association (FNGA). One of
the reasons that this fertili-
zer is lost is the ease that
exists for disposal. The lawn is
cut and the grass is bagged-
then set out for the garbage
man. It is then carried to a
city or county disposal area to
pile higher and higher. Most
areas are at a loss even now as
to how to dispose of other
refuse. Add the millions of
tons of grass to this already

staggering pile and there real-
Ty is a problem.
Much of this waste could be
eliminated! It would take only
a few minutes of time, each
lawn clipping, to dispose of the
cut grass right on the home
owner's ground.
Composting is not new! It
has been practiced for many
years. Organic gardeners
have been outspoken on the
use of good compost. There
are hundreds of ideas for con-
structing a compost bin or
other container. In fact, if you
do not want to take the time
and trouble to build one, a

tures from concrete and wood.
Regardless of the type of
composting done, it does pro-
duce results and will save you
money. The money is import-
ant; however, the added bene-
fit to the soil is much greater.
Organic matter properly com-
posted will add water holding
capacity to the soil. It will also
supply additional amounts of
trace elements.
Research has shown that
some nematodes will not find
a home in soil that is heavy
with organic matter. All kinds
of beneficial insects and fungi
can live in a soil that has an
abundance of organic mater-
ial in it. Roots form more
densely. Water is absorbed
more quickly and held longer.
In a time of high energy
consumption, it is important
that the home owner,., as well
as all others, consider the con-
servation of energy, water and
fertilizer. You can help by
beginning to use grass clip-
pings in a compost pile, says
Florida Nurserymen and
Growers Association (FNGA).

endar. There are shrubs for all pur-

poses, and it is easy to select a
few that will hide the compost
pile. Notice how much better
the shrubs will grow close to
the pile. If they benefit, then
why shouldn't all of the other

plants when the compost is
applied to them?
Be wise-be conservation

So Cool, Creamy and Colorful...

Cranberry Almond Ice Cream

---- -----

Cranberries like ice cream are never out of season, and for
those who love the taste of America's tangy berries and are
ice cream addicts too, Cranberry Almond Ice Cream will be a
double treat. The recipe easily combines milk, sugar, eggs and
heavy cream with whole berry. cranberry sauce and toasted
almonds for a super cool, creamy and colorful delectation.
Taste perfect on its own, this scrumptious ice cream is also
great generously topped with more of the whole berry cran-
berry sauce that created it. Other ideas for serving-scoop it
on top of melon or waffles, team it a la mode with apple and
blueberry pies, or with chocolate or angel food cake. For a
luscious drink, combine cranberry juice cocktail with soda and
then add Cranberry Almond Ice Cream.
(Makes 2 Quarts)
1 cup milk 4 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1 cup sugar 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream, whipped
1 can (1 pound) Ocean Spray whole
4 egg yolks berry cranberry sauce
% teaspoon salt 1 can (4 ounces) chopped toasted almonds
Combine milk, sugar and egg yolks. Beat until smooth. Cook
over very low heat, stirring constantly until mixture coats a
spoon and thickens slightly. Chill until* cold. Gently fold in
egg whites, heavy cream, cranberry sauce and almonds. Pour
mixture into a freezer container and freeze until firm.
