Jim Roberts spoke on "A
time to piant and a time to
pluck that which is planted."
According to Roberts, the past
12 years have been used to
plant values, morals, etc. and.
that the seniors must now
pluck up these things, culling
out the worthless from those
things of value.
Donna Pitts expounded the
theme "A time'to break down
and a time to build up." She
felt "it's time to remove waste
and replace it with a new and
fresh foundation." Compaiing
this to the wise man who built

and what should be discarded,
using the resources that had
been furnished to them
through the learning process.
"A time to keep silence and
a time to speak" was the
theme of Philip Davis. He
asked "Has morality vanish-
ed or just hidden under a
blanket of silent people?" He
pointed out that it was time for
the silent majority to speak
out against wrong and to line
up to their responsibility of
voicing their opinion.
Bill Hughes pointed out
under his topic, "A time to

we should follow the example
of Jesus who "hated the sin

Mayor Frank Pate landed a
program in the laps of the
newly organized City Com-
mission Tuesday night, when
he suggested to the just
seated group that the City
explore the possibility of es-
tablishing a combination paid
and volunteer fire department
for fire protection. Pate rec-
ommended that the City hire
four full time firemen to give
the city better protection, and,
primarily, to lower fire insur-
ance rates within the City.
The Mayor gave no specifics
about how the organization
would operate, but he.envis-
ioned a department in which
thepaid men would be on duty
at all times, keeping the
equipment in proper order anid
giving instant response to a
fire alarm Volunteers would
respond directly to the fire.

Found Yesterday

The body of 28-year-old Ronnie Taylor of Compass Lake
was found yesterday morning following .a 16 day search.
Taylor drowned in the Apalachicola River Sunday, May 22
about 4:30 while fishing in the River near lola Landing.
According to Sheriff Ken Murphy, the body' was fourid
about 9:0Q a.m., Tuesday morning by a tug boat heading up
river. The body was reported found about a quarter mile
north of Iola Landingin the vicinity where he was reported to
have gone overboard. :: ...
Taylor's boat began.to take on water while he and Betty
Lewis of Marianna were fishing. Miss Lewis was picked out
of the water by,a passing boater, but Taylor wasn't found
until his body surfaced near the tug boat yesterday morning.

The office of Congress-
man Bob Sikes called just
at press time yesterday af-
ternoon to advise that the.
City of Port St. Joe and
Gulf county had received a
total of $375.000 in grants
under the 1977 Public
Works bill.
The City of Port St.. Joe
will receive $289,000.00 to
finance construction of a
drainage project here in
the city and Gulf county

will get $86,000.
Port St. Joe applied for
the nioney last year to
place a large drain pipe
from the eastern edge of
the city limits, down 20th
Street to the drainage ditch

Pate reported that figures
available to the City show
such a move, which would cost
the City approximately $30,000
a year, would result in from 15
to 18 percent savings on fire
insurance premiums.
Pate recommended that all
future policemen hired be
encorporated into the depart-
merit also and have fire fight-
er training.

the Florida Highway Patrol
said this week.
"The final school bell, bring-

another summer, will release
thousands of children to
swarm over Florida's streets
and highways and motorists
face a great responsibility for
their safety," said Colonel
Eldrige Beach, director of the
Gulf County schools will

Florida will be closed by June
10 this year. Drivers should be
especially alert for pedes-
trians and bike riders around
vacant lots, recreation areas,
parks and suburban areas
where there are no sidewalks.
Colonel Beach concluded by
saying, "While the motorist

safety of the child in the

responsibility to teach their
children not to use streets and
highways as playgrounds.

LY of this form of cancer. It's
a tragic waste of life. It can be
avoided by regular Pap tests.
Another important safeguard
is a visit to a physician when
abnormal bleeding or vaginal

important for the women over
45 who might assume such an

occurrence is part of her
'change-of life' ".
The ACS has a National
Task Force on Uterine Cancer
Control and the problem is
truly of national scope. This
year, some 42,000 American
women will be diagnosed for
uterine cancer and 12,000
women will die "even though

we have the means of control-

don't have to wait for research

By the time you read this, school will be out
for the summer time and kids will be involved in
the things they do when the summer vacation
comes along.
Just how important summer time is to a kid
was brought home to me as a reminder this week
end when a cousin I hadn't seen in 21 years came
through town and we had a chance for a short
visit Sunday evening. This cousin was that
"special cousin" every kid'has. When we were
kids back in Oklahoma, we would spend half the
summer at his house and he would spend the
other half at ours. We had a good time together
doing the things kids do in the summer, except
we seemed to have a better time at it than most
kids do, since we liked to do the same things and
we worked hard at doing them. Mostly, we liked
to roam the woods and play Tarzan in tall wiry
blackjack oak saplings, build tents in the woods
and play'indian and build caves under overhang-
ing rocks on the side of a gully. We had a good
This particular cousin is still in an adventur-
ous work. He is an oil wild-catter and he makes
his living being a consultant for oil companies
who do not have their own drilling crews. He sets
up the wild-catting operation, wherever it is, and
sees the whole drilling operation through to
production or capping of a dry hole. Then he
moves on to the next site. He works now mostly
with off-shore operations and is kind of a "Red
Adair" of the drilling rig.
He and his wife have moved 49 times in the 24
years they have been married and have lived in
Libya, Quatar, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Singa-
pore, the Philippines, New Zealand and many
other places around the globe. When they
dropped by here, he had just finished a five
month stint on an off-shore rig off the coast of
Haiti, where he and his family had been living.
He was on his way either, to Singapore or Alaska;
wherever he was needed most.

Gather Info Before

Applying for SS

People who plan to apply for
Supplemental Security In-
come payments (SSI) can
save time by first getting
together some information
about themselves, according
to Dave Robinson, social
security representative for
Gulf County.
The SSI program makes
monthly payments to people
with little or no income and
limited resources who are 65
or over or blind or disabled.
People can get information
about applying for the pay-
ments by calling or writing
any social security office.
"When applying," Robin-
son said. "it's a good idea to
have with you as many of the
following as possible: a check-
book, if you have one, to show
how much you have in the
bank, any savings account
books, stocks and bonds, life
insurance policies, automobile

registration cards, last year's
income tax return, W-2 forms
and evidence of all other
It may save time, too,
according to Robinson, if
people applying for SSI pay-
ments know how much cash
they have on hand and know
the value of their car, if they
own one.
"You should also have your
social security card," he said.
"Disabled or blind students 18
to 22 should have a school
identification card, tuition re-
ceipts, or similar evidence of
school attendance."
The Supplemental Security
Income program is admini-
stered by the Social Security
Administration, an agency of
the U. S. Department of
Health, 'Education and Wel-
fare. The Panama City social
security office is at 1316
Harrison Avenue. The phone
number is 769-4871.

with daddy, who went up to the wedding with us.
The next time you get to Atlanta, I
recommend Aunt Fanny's. They have only four
dishes, fried chicken, Smithfield ham, steak and
rainbow trout. But with ony one of those dishes,
you received their own special baked squash,
rice and gravy, macaroni and cheese and turnip
greens, along with a generous helping of
cornbread and biscuits. A fellow could make
himself on that fare the way they prepare it,
even if you don't particularly like turnip greens,
squash or macaroni and cheese. Even Henry
Cassani would eat those turnip greens.
Aunt Fanny's Cabin is a cabin (which will
seat about 2,000 people in the various rooms of
the "cabin") and it was full Friday night. But the
food was excellent and the service was just about
as good.

We try to have something for everyone in
this column, so now I'll devote a few lines for the
benefit of the president of our Chamber of
Commerce, Wanda Brown. I'm going to have to
refer once again to my cousin, who visited
Sunday, in order to do it.
As I said, this cousin has lived all over the
world and a good part of the United States, but he
made a remark to me which pleased me very
much and should please Wanda and everyone
else who lives here.
He said, "This is a pretty town. If I could
make a living following my trade here, I'd settle
down here in a minute."
Ihad to tell him that's why I am here. I like it
and I take a dim view of those who run the town
down and don't support it as they should.

I was surprised on my trip to Atlanta. For
the first time in the few trips I have taken to the
"heaven" of the South, I went through Donalson-
ville and Colquit, Georgia on my way north. I
was somewhat disturbed over the city of
Donalsonville: They still haven't put up a sign
saying, "Donalsonville, the birthplace of Sammy

Fires Ravage

dry weather the normally
swampy areas are dried out
and susceptible to fire. In
many areas, the fires occurr-
ed in areas where prevention
measures could not be taken
because of the natural terrain.
Inaccessibility has also made
the fires hard to fight.
Most of this type fire either
burns out of control before
noticed or they are spotted by
the Forestry Department pi-
lot, Dee Paffos, on regular
patrol. Paffos cap spot a fire
of this type for many miles
and with weather conditions
as they are, spends as many
as 40 hours per week flying
over his territory marking

fires and assisting in fire
control measures by spotting
for ground crews.

According to both Paffos
and Godfrey, "we need rain"
before the present conditions
will improve. Both request
any information concerned
citizens might have to aid in
early warning and prevention
of fire hazards, to advise the
local forestry department of
these conditions as soon as
possible. They ask that the
public be alert to the problem
and request their help, noting
that this county's economic
backbone is connected with
the production of its forests.

hall of the city fire station, the
members were excited about
the completion of another pro-
ject-the restoration and re-
framing of a picture which
: had been given to the society
many years ago by J. L.
Sharit, now deceased. Mr.
Sharit was vice-president of
the A.N. Railroad Company,
..and a past mayor and .com-
missioner. Pictured are 12 of
the earliest ships to come into
the harbor in the early days of
shipping in Port St. Joe, even
before the town received its
name. The beautiful repro-
Sduction has been placed on
display in the lobby of the
First National Bank.
The president, Mrs. Ralph
Swatts, Sr., displayed a copy
of "The Florida Historical
Directory", which is a listing
of all the museums and histor-
ical societies in the state, and
published for the first time
Sthisyear. She shared with the
group information about the
local society and museum as
given in the new book. She also
shared with the group a letter
from Sen. Pat Thomas, ex-
pressing his interest in the
society's museum building
project and assuring the
members of his cooperation.
': Richard Boyer, curator of
the Florida Museum at Port
St. Joe, and guest of the
society, asked the assistance
of the members in helping to

To keep poinsettias from be-
coming very tall and to pro-
mote more flowering shoots,
start pruning and pinching
At this time of year, poin-
settias are growing rapidly. A
compact plant may be obtain-
ed at flowering time, rather
than one wth a few long, un-
branched canes, if the plants
are pruned several times dur-
ing the growing seasons. The
new growth being made now
should be cut back when the

Some of the topics to be
presented include concepts of
planning, sources and types of
financing, determining initial

shoots are 10 to 12 inches long.
Cut the shoots back, leaving
four leaves on each shoot. This
operation should be repeated
every time the new growths
develop a growth of 10 to 12
inches. Do not cut shoots back
after September 10. Pruning
in this manner will produce a
nice compact plant with many
flowers. Pruning after Sep-
tember 10 may interfere with
flowering, as poinsettias set
their flower buds soon after
the first week of October.

service course should con-

Education, 769-1551.

Frequently we see a poin-
settia plant near a house or on
a front lawn that is not flo-
wering, when all others in the
neighborhood are in full
bloom. This occurrence is
readily explained, since the
time of bloom of poinsettias is
influenced by length of day. As
the days become short in fall,
the plants set their flower
buds about the first of Octo-
ber. However, plants can be
prevented from flowering by
artificially extending the day
length with electric lights.
This condition may occur
when plants are growing near
a street or yard light around
the house. Light from a win-
dow or door is sufficient to
prevent or delay flowering of
poinsettias. In order to be
assured of bloom, place the
poinsettia in an area of the
..garden that does not receive
light during the night.
Poinsettias should be ferti-
lized about three times each
year-the first when growth
starts in spring, the second in
June and the last in late
October or early November.

The last application promotes
larger bracts (flowers) with
good color and aids in root
-growth during winter. Occa-
sionally, a fourth application
will be required in mid-sum-
mer if the early summer ap-
plication is followed by ex-
tremely heavy rains. Use
'6-6-6, 8-8-8, or similar com-
plete fertilizers on poinsettias.
About one-quarter cup is suffi-
cient at each feeding. Evenly
distribute this amount about
the base of the plant and
lightly cultivate it into the soil
and then give a light watering.
A teaspoon of epsom salt
applied along with the fertili-
zer may benefit the poinsettia
plant. Epsom salt supplies
magnesium to the plant. When
magnesium is limited, plant
leaves may become yellow.
Poinsettias are not subject
to many insect and disease
pests. Most insect problems
are easily controlled with
malathion sprays. Copper
sprays will generally solve
most leaf disease problems.
Don't over-water poinsettias

tionist and secretary for Ham-
ilton Jordan, an assistant to
President Carter, and .was
active in the Carter campaign
Rather than speak formally
of the White. House and its
operation, Miss Hendrix an-
swered questions put to her by
the Rotarians. She reported
that the President works a
very long day as does every-
one connected with his office.
"Days of 14 hours are the rule
rather than the exception and
seven day weeks are common
things"; she said. The speaker
reported that while the Pres-
ident wears his coat and tie at.
most functions, it wasn't at all
unusual to see him in the Oval
office working in his blue
jeans late in the evening.
Miss Hendrix said that prob-

her job is seeing the greats
and near greats from all over
.the world who come to see the
President of the United States.

By Cathy Hanlon
Publicity Chairman GARC
Good, good, good vibra-
tions-that's what I had last

Tuesday night after our Asso-
ciation meeting in Wewahitch-
ka. I was very pleased with
the turnout, considering that

we were in conflict with a
meeting that was very import-
ant to the people in Wewa.
Perhaps'next time we will be
able to schedule our meeting
so as to not coincide with
another large group.
We decided that we would do
some heavy campaigning for
our organization in the next
few weeks, so if one of our
'people comes knocking on
your door, let h'm or her in,
listen, then join our organiza-
tion. You and your family can
help benefit one 'of the most
deserving group'.- of people in
the world..
We hope to hold an election
for a new slate of officers and
a board of directors by the
time school starts next fall;
but weneed more.active inem-
bers, a more equal represen-
tation of the count,', so, come
on and join. We n :ed you.

Troop 118 has enjoyed a
busy month of May. Their
meetings were filled with pre-
parations for a weekend of
camping with their neighbor-
hood Scouts. Entertainment
and camp information was
presented to their parents on
May 12. The girls presented a
flag ceremony, candle cere-
mony, a playlett entitled
"Seven Silly Simons" and
several songs they had enjoy-
ed during the year.
Fifteen members of the
troop received membership
stars, and six Brownie "B"
patches were awarded. Par-
ents were then told of planned
camp activities, safety rules
and troop needs.

Wetappo Scouts recently
participated in the QSP Read-
ers Digest magazine sub-
scriptions sale, and four-
members of Troop 118 earned
patches for their parents'
efforts in this project of the
Apalachee Bend Council.

With troop meetings con-
cluding for this year, all
members of Scouts extend
their thanks to everyone res-
ponsible for making this year
so exciting. It is hoped that the
newly acquired skills, new
friendships, and long-lasting-
memories will repay everyone
for their help in transporta-
tion, supplies and finan-
cial support. The Scouts re-
ported they have made many
new friends through their
sponsoring church, with
people at the places they
visited, through cookie and
calendar sales, and with all of
their concerned parents. They
are looking forward to your
support next year.
