Have Chance

for Funding
The office of Senator Law-
ton Chiles said this week that
the federal purse strings
would -be opened tomorrow
and pour out $150 million in
federal money to be used to
finance various public works
throughout the state of Flor-
This is of special interest to
Gulf County and Port St. Joe,
since the county and city have
a total of four projects on file
for financing for a total of
about $4.3. million.
Gulf County has asked for
funds to finance a water and
sewer installation at the Bea-
ches and in White City. The
City of Port St. Joe has
applications filed to finance 0
drainage program for the
eastern portion of the City for
County Finance Officer Jer-
ry Gates and City Clerk Mike
Wright, who have. filed the
applications for the two local
government agencies say Gulf
and Port St. Joe stand a good
chance of getting all or partial
funding, since the average
unemployment for the county
during the past quarter was
11.2 percent. Wright said,
"This qualifies us to receive
grant money".


FHP Trooper Bill Godwin

Now Stationed In Gulf
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Bill Godwin has taken
over the duties of the Patrol here in Gulf County, filling the
vacancy left by the resignation of Ken Murphy, who resigned
last summer to run for the office of Sheriff of Gulf County.
Trooper Godwin has moved to Port St. Joe from his
previous station in the Florida Keys and now resides with his
wife, Brenda and their two-year-old' daughter, Julie at 212
Ninth Street.
Godwin was born and reared in Escambia County and
has been with the Florida Highway Patrol for three and a half
The young law enforcement officer says "It's good to get
back near home again."

Funding Ho

The State Department of
Natural Resources has placed
its stamp of approval on a
$29,250 grant for the City of
Port St. Joe for the purpose of
constructing recreation facili-
ties. The final OK for the funds
still has to come however, as
the State Cabinet must put its
stamp of approval on the
grant at their meeting in June.

That rain we received last Tuesday after-
noon and night was mighty welcome, but it
wasn't enough to do us for any appreciable
length of time.
We made it rain this time with our lamenting
over the dry weather, how long it has been since
the last shower, and to cap it all off, we received
shipment of a trailer-truck load of newsprint
Tuesday evening just as the rain was beginning.
Somebody else can do what is necessary to
bring on the next shower. We don't receive a
trailer-truck load of newsprint every week and
even if we did, we don't particularly relish
exposing $6,000 worth of roll newsprint to a
shower of rain. Moisture has a tendency to stick
it together and stuck newsprint is about as
useless as more dry weather right now.

Star Wins Two Awards In

State-wide Competition

For the first time since it
was established in 1937, The
Star entered the Better News-

Press Association this year
and walked away with two
prizes at the annual Spring
Convention held in Cocoa

Is Oil Scarce?

Kiwanian Eldon Miller pre-
sented the weekly program to
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday,
using excerpts from the Wall
Street Journal pertaining to
the nation's oil crisis.
A full page article in the
newspaper, using quotations
from geologists, oil men and
economists pointed out that
the oil shortage is a matter of
economics rather than supply.
Miller read one quotation
made in 1876 by a geologist,
which stated that the nation

had less than a dozen years of
oil remaining-in 1876.
Most of the quotations by
geologists stated that only
about 75 percent of the nations
known supply has been pump-
ed out of the ground. This was
the oil easiest to get to. The
remainder can be recovered
but the cost will be higher.

mock and Julane McFarland.

their sixth wedding anniversary. That isn't
exactly the way Frenchie and I celebrated our
sixth anniversary. I know we didn't celebrate it
like that because I don't remember how we
celebrated our sixth. Had we ridden down the
street nude on a motorcycle, I suspect it would
linger vaguely in my mind.
The cop, after arresting the pair, looked the
situation over, surmised they were not hurting
the sensibilities of too many people at 4:00 in the
morning and charged the man and woman for
driving without a drivers license on their person.
I wonder if they had on a helmet? That's
another charge, you know.

After the showing of the pornographic film
"Deep Throat" on FSU campus recently, a
group of North Florida legislators shearheaded a
drive to make universities form a committee to
screen campus movies. Rep. Ed Fortune, one of
the instigators of thenmovesaid a professor at the
University of West lJbrida is facing prosecution
for showing the film and he felt the same
yardstick should be applied at all universities
and their tax-supported activities.
Rep. Alan Becker, of Miami Beach, where
almost anything goes, said Fortune's amend-
ment would violate academic freedom and could
violate'free speech.
Our own Rep. Billy Joe Rich defended
Fortune's amendment by stating, "Pornography
is a matter of geography. Where Mr. Fortune
and I come from, 'Deep Throat' is not good for
young people."
I'm with you, Billy Joe; from what I have
read about "Deep Throat", it not only is unfit
fare for young people, but is also not fit for
viewing by adults, either: not even for Mr.

Old Jimmy Carter is living dangerous again.
Last week he fired a Major General
stationed in Korea for disagreeing with the
Carter administration decision to remove troops
from South Korea.
Last week, President Carter had Major
General John K. Singlaub on the carpet in order
to rap knuckles for daring to make a public
statement detrimental to the President's will
and desires. President Carter found out the
General didn't make the remarks to try to
change the President's policy; he was merely
expressing his opinion.
I think President Carter has bit off a bit
much in this incident. Remember General
MacArthur and his little tiff with former
President Truman? After Tryman fired MacAr-
thur, the General became a full-fledged threat to
Truman's presidency and was the odds-on
favorite to capture the office from all contenders
for a while.
What I'm getting at, in a round-about way, is
that General Singlaub may just become a
definite threat to Carter succeeding himself
from this little fracas. General Singlaub may
become the martyr that will block any future
Carter plans to succeed himself for a second four
year term.
Now, the Joint Chiefs of Staff say they were
not consulted about the advisability of Carter's
move, which could have been good or it could
have been bad. It would seem to me that if Mr.
Carter were pulling out the troops because it was
the best thing for the country and Korea to do at
the time, it would seem that he would have
consulted the Joint Chiefs of Staff. If he was just
bent on pulling the troops out, no matter what,
then there was no need to ask anybody.
If we're just committed to conceding the
Orient to Red China, then it's best to pull out of
Korea now before any more money or lives are
spent in that situation. On reading the papers
recently about what is happening to the people of
Vietnam and Cambodia, it seems to be a pretty
heartless thing to do.

Two kindergarten classes of
Faith Christian School visited
the train terminal at Apalach-
icola Northern Railroad's en-
gine shop last Thursday morn-
ing. The youngsters, three and
four year olds, under the di-
rection of their teachers, Mrs.
Sherry Davidson and Mrs.
Vivian Bateman toured the
Railroad personnel explain-
ed workings of the train to the
children, and gave them book-
lets on train safety. The occa-
sion was an exciting one to the
children, as they prepared for
the occasion by wearing their
overalls and jeans, in order to
look like real railroad men. .

in entering the college of their
choice. At least eight of the
nine attended college, two

Oysters are plump, tasty and available. And now is the
time to serve them on the half shell either raw, roasted, or,
in this great new way from the Florida Department of
Natural Resources. Smoke cooking is so easy; all you need is
a hooded grill and some hickory or other hardwood chips. An
oven thermometer is handy to have if your grill; is not
equipped.with one. Dad may take over the smoking once he
sees how easy it is and the compliments it brings. Soak about
one-third pound hardwood chips overnight. The wet chips
produce the aromatic smoke when placed over heated
ceramic tiles or glowing charcoal (using less charcoal than
with an average broiling fire). Keep the temperature low, the
chips from catching on fire and the smoke in the oven. Follow
the recipe for Smoky Oysters Supreme and you'll have an
irresistable entree or a tantalizing hors d'oeuvre.

Shuck and drain oysters. Place oysters on deep half of

Energy Saving Ideas
New Kind Of Home Saves On Utility Bills

An energy-saving home is
being developed that is ex-
pected to save the average
homeowner about $175 a
year in utility costs. It
makes use of solar heat and
improved building and plan-
ning techniques.
One of Florida's largest
community development
and building companies will
complete and test a proto-
type model of the new
home this summer.
The new energy-saving
system will probably cost
the home buyer less than
'$1,000. General Develop-.
ment Corp. has taken the
existing solar water heating
concept and added new de-
sign, planning and materials
that will help conserve
Attic Space Used
While the system basically
uses a rooftop solar water
heating receptor for supply-
ing hot water for household
needs, other construction re-
finements have been added.
S Fgr example, the water
heating and storage tank,
which is fed by the rooftop
receptor, has been located
in the attic space in order
S to prevent heat generated
S. by the appliance from enter-
ing the living area.
The new system will be
offered as an optional fea-
ture with General Develop-
, ment's affordable and popu-
lar "ANSWER" home, which

was introduced about six
months ago. The 1,520-
square-foot residence has
been the, company's best-
selling shelter product. The
three-bedroom, two-bath
home is priced at $29,990,
excluding homesite.
The prototype "Energy
Answer Home" will be ini-
tially constructed at Port
St. Lucie, a community of
about 11,000 residents on
Florida's Atlantic Coast 45
miles north of Palm Beach.
The company is building
planned communities at Port
Charlotte on the Gulf Coast,
Port Malabar on the Atlantic
Coast and Port LaBelle near
Lake Okeechobee.
Insulation Added
In addition to energy-
saving in water heating costs,
the home will be con-
structed with heavy-duty
insulation in exterior walls
and ceiling. This will permit
. the use of smaller air condi-
tioning units which require
less electrical power.
Heat-producing areas of
the home, such as bathroom
interior and exterior walls,
are better insulated.
Other new construction
techniques will include more
attic ventilation by use of
roof-peak and soffit ducts.
Exhaust fans will be used
more extensively in high
heat areas such as bath-
rooms and kitchens.


Open 8 AM to 7 PM, Mon. thru Sat.

HERE'S AN ANSWER-A new home being constructed is
designed to save energy and money. It puts the solar water
heater in the attic, adds more insulation to exterior walls
and ceiling, provides for more attic ventilation to assist air
conditioning. It's expected to cut utility costs $175 a year.

mature chinch bugs are about
the size of a' pinhead and ,are
bright red with a white bsnd
across the back. Adult bugs
are one-fifth of an inch long,
dark brown to black in color
and have white wings.- If you
find a bug and are not sure
that it is a chinch bug, mash it
between your thumb and fore-

finger and smell it. If it has the
typical stink bug odor, it is
most probably a chinch bug.
If you can't see chinch bugs
by examining the grass, try
the coffee can technique. To
do this, cut both ends out of a
coffee or similar size can and
sink the can two to three
inches into the soil at the edge
of the yellowish area of the
grass. Then fill the can full of
water. If chinch bugs are pre-
sent, they will float to the top
of the standing water in a frew
When testing for chinch
bugs, don't be satisfied by just
testing in one place. Try the
test in several locations, pro-
vided you don't find them on
your first attempt. A mistake
most often made by gardeners
in testing for chinch bugs is
that they test in areas where
the grass is already brown or
dead. Chinch bugs have al-
ready feasted on such grass
and have headed for greener
pastures. Therefore make
your test in green grass adja-
cent to the brown areas. The
can should be sunk in green
grass approximately 10-12
inches from the dead or brown
St. Augustine grass.
Two tips which make testing
easier are: 1) water the lawn
a day before trying to sink the
can, it's much easier to get
it into damp soil and 2) place
a board across the top of the
can and drive the can into the
sod by hitting the board.


Hitting the edge of the can
with a hammer only bends the
rim, particularly on hard, dry
If you find two or more
chinch bugs floating to the top
of your test cans, your lawn
has a heavy infestation of
chinch bugs and treatment to
control them should be applied
immediately. Effective in-
secticides include Aspon, Bay-
gon, Diazinon, Dursan,
Ethion, Trithion and VC-13.
Treat when chinch bugs first
appear in the lawn and spray
every six to eight weeks until
cool weather arrives in fall.
