Something In The Air Saturday

Pungent Pogeys Pile Up

There was very definitely something in the
air which wasn't supposed to be there early
Saturday morning, for the residents who live on
the waterfront along Constitution Drive here in
Port St. Joe.
The "something in the air which wasn't
supposed to be there" was the smell of spoiling
fish. There was no mistaking the fact that they
were no longer fresh.
Tom Coldewey, a resident of the area,
ventured across the road Saturday morning, as
he was preparing to go to work, when he smelled
the odor which wasn't there when he went to bed
the night before. What he saw was thousands of
dead pogey fish lying along the shoreline, where
they had been washed in by the tide. The fish
were piled up along the water's edge all the way
from the C. G. Costin home, south, to Patton's
Bayou and were getting more ripe as the sun
rose higher in the skies.
Coldewey got hold of Mayor Prank Pate, who

got hold of Mosquito Control Director Tommy
Pitts, who got hold of the Marine Patrol, who got
hold of Raffield Fisheries. All together, they
amassed a crew of about 40 men and youths and
the big clean-up began. The clean-up consisted of
picking up the rapidly deteriorating fish and
carrying them to several holes dug along the
shoreline by the City's backhoe where they were
The burial detail arrived on the job around
11:00 a.m., and stayed until about 4:00 when the
last hole was covered and the operation closed
The effort was a cooperative venture of the
City of Port St. Joe, the county Mosquito Control
Department, the Marine Patrol and Raffield
The Marine Patrol officer said the kill was
only one of several which have happened
recently along the Gulf coast. He said several
batches of the dead pogey have washed ashore

this spring in the Pensacola area. He surmised
that the hot weather and lack of rain caused the
fish to die from a lack of oxygen, apparently
after being trapped behind a reef by a receding
Gene Raffield, operations manager for
Raffield Fisheries, said that at present St.
Joseph Bay is "loaded" with pogey. "It's the
first time since the old pogey fishing days that
the fish have been so plentiful in St. Joseph's
Bay. He credited the fast improving condition of'
St. Joseph Bay for the return of the fish.
Although the fish kill along the highway here
in town was the only one visible here in the Bay,
it was reported later that dead fish were found in
the head-of the bay also, but were in an area
where their odor didn't disturb inhabited areas.
Raffield estimated the fish kill dumped
between 10,000 and 12,000 pounds of fish on the
water's edge. By the time the last one was
buried, the smell bore out Raffield's estimate.

Dead pogey fish lined the shore
, .-- along Constitution Drive Saturday
S and put.up a stench which caused
immediate steps to be taken to bury
the dead fish. In the photo at left, the
fish are shown along the shoreline,
which stretched from the C. G.
'Costin home, south, to Patton's
Bayou. In thp other photo, Mansfield

Ambulance Matter Still Up In The Air Over Charges

Attorney William J. Rish Says Apparently No Conflict of Interest

The second chapter .of the
Gulf County Volunteer Ambu-
lance Squad caper was played
Tuesday night at the County
Commission meeting before a
packed court room, but the
second chapter came no closer
to solving the problem than
the first act, played last week.
Myron Gilbert, a citizen-vis-
itor at the meeting, summed
the whole situation up suc-
cinctly when he stated, "I fepl
t.'s foolish to bring this thing
nto the open without an
opinion from the Attorney
General. This is the crux of the
A Gilbert's comment came
nearly two hours after the
discussion started, which at
times resulted in heated and
acid exchanges between Com-
missioner Teo Kennedy and
Dick Lamberson; the former
squad chief of the Port St. Joe
squad and the target of Ken-
nedt's self-appointed audit of
the ambulance service expen-
Lamberson tofc.< the floor
first and officially tendered
his resignation as squad chief,
presented to Commission
Chairman Everette Owens
last week. The Commission
never did act on the resigna-


tion, to reject it or to accept it.
In his statement, Lamber-
son defended the operation of
the service and held the
opinion there was no wrong-
doing on the part of the
director in purchases made.
One of Kennedy's main points
of audit was the fact the
service purchased supplies
from Lamberson's business
and Kennedy felt this was a
conflict of interest, since he
considered the squad chief as
an employee of the county.
Lamberson said he was
unaware of such a law in the
first place. He had been
selling to the squad ever since
it was formed and was never
told he had a conflict of
interest by the board or its
attorney. 'Tm no employee",
he said, "I'm a volunteer,
working at the wishes of the
personnel of the ambulance
service". The former squad
chief went on to. say, "Com-
missioner Kennedy came to
me and didn't tell me I was
probably in violation or may
be in violation; he told me I
was in violation. I assumed
his advice had come from the
Board's attorney who is re-
tained to give that sort of
advice, so I had no alternative
except to resign".


Remaining Volunteers

Lamberson defended two
other questions of using the
Rescue vehicle and expendi-
tures of the squad. He pointed
out that the Rescue truck was
given to the squad by the City
of Port St. Joe and was kept by
the EMT on call for immed-
iate response to the trouble
scene to render immediate

treatment or rescue while
waiting for the ambulance.
Lamberson pointed out that
the truck had probably saved
several lives since the mode of
operation was adopted.
Lamberson went on to say
that his squad expenditures.
were within their budget.
"Our expenditures haven't

been excessive", he pointed
out and stated the service was
"One of the best bargains the
county has ever had". He took
a dig at Kennedy by stating,
"The whole situation is just a
product of Commissioner Ken-
nedy's ignorance of the oper-
ation of the ambulance squad,
an operation he is charged to

Then it was Commissioner
Kennedy's turn. Armed with a
law book and a satchel full of
papers, the Commissioner
said, "I looked into this matter
in secret. Neither my wife or
these other Commissioners
knew what I was doing." He
said he started looking into the
records of the service after a
remark was made to him at a
meeting in Wewahitchka that
"irregularities" existed in the.
Port St. Joe squad.
Kennedy said he told the
person making the statement,
"If anything is wrong, it
should be stopped and if it
isn't, the talk should be stop-
ped". He said, "It's my job to
check these complaints. It was
my duty as a County Commis-
sioner to see that things were
as they should be".
K~dv kt tmio bk

seemed to be trying to impart
the fact that he made his
examination with no malice,
except to find out the truth or
untruths in the charges made.
Kennedy referred to his law
book to identify a "public
employee" and defend his
actions as a County Commis-
At this point in the proceed-
ings, Chairman Owens asked
attorney Rish to report on his
query to the Attorney General.
Rish reported that the At-
torney General ruled on what
information Rish was able to
furnish that there was no
conflict of interest. Rish went
on to say, "They like to get all
the facts in these cases and
give an opinion in writing, so
we are still not certain of the
situation". Rish said new
changes in the law may also

Kennedy then filed a report,
which he said he had prepared
before Lamberson's resigna-
tion had been written up, and
he gave it to Chairman Owens
after reading his findings.

+Offering Quality Service Softball Complex Started

The Port St. Joe Unit of the Volunteer Ambulance Squad
is still functioning with qualified EMT's, despite the fact that
the force has been decimated by recent resignations due to
Commissioner Kennedy's "investigation" of Squad Chief
Dick Lamberson. A small number of EMT's is keeping the
force intact, and offering the same caliber of service to
patients in need of their care. Persons in need of an
ambulance may still obtain one by dialing 227-2311, the
ambulance number which is monitored by the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department.
Jim Gregg, a qualified EMT who has been with the Squad
since its inception, has been named as the new Squad Chief
for the Port St. Joe Unit.

The City of Port St. Joe has
been awarded $29,250 for con-
struction of two softball fields
this week by the Governor and
Cabinet under the Florida
Recreation Development As-
sistance Program adminis-
tered by the Department of
Natural Resources' Division
of Recreation and Parks.
The approval of the funds by
the Recreation Division was
announced three weeks ago,

but the fund grant was not
official until the Cabinet gave
their approval this week.
Work began this week on
construction of the two fields,
which will be located on Gulf
County School Board property
to the rear of the Port St. Joe
-High School.
The appropriation was one
of 17 projects funded by the
Division in a pilot program in
which local user-oriented rec-

rational facilities are award-
ed grants. The 17 projects
chosen were selected from 156
applications received from
throughout the state.
Cost of the ball fields will be
paid entirely by the state. The
project received unanimous
endorsement by the State
Interagency Outdoor Recrea-
tion Advisory Committee at a
meeting held earlier this
month in Tallahassee.

been kept busy for the past
couple of weeks investigating
a gaggle of break-ins. The
break-ins ranged from the
Ryder depot west of Highland
View to Bill's Dollar Store
here in town.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said his
department has been bothered
with a burglar or burglars
which has been breaking into
the Ryder depot and driving
the trucks off for a joy ride. He
said the break-ins have been.
successful twice and unsuc-
cessful once.
Sheriff Murphy said the
thieves climbed the fence to
gain entrance, then rammed
the truck through the gate to

nearly 100 miles logged by the
burglar, and another night,
only nine miles. The third
time, Ryder officials had put a
chain over the gate and the
burglars couldn't get the truck
out of the compound.
Two business houses have
been hit here in town over the
past two weeks, with approx-
imately $2,100 being taken.
Pate's 66 Service Station has
been hit twice in the same
manner, with thieves entering
a window at night and.rifling
the cash register. Pate said
the thieves have taken around
$700 plus checks during the
two trips to his business.
Local police say they have


were lifted at the site of the
crime. These have been sent
off for identification.
Mrs. Earl Peak, manager of
Bill's Dollar Store reported to
police that a bank envelope
containing some $1,400 in cash
and checks was taken from
the store during the day, the
middle of last week.
Mrs. Peak said a truck load
of merchandise came in to the
store and was unloaded in the
rear, adjacent to the office
area of the store, After the
unloading was finished, later
in the afternoon, Mrs. Peak
missed the envelope andcal-

No clues have been turned
up in this case.

Fires Continue to Plague Gulf

A forest fire of unknown origin, five miles west of the ..
White City headquarters .center in central Gulf County,
burned over 600 acres of woodlands recently. Twenty-five
crews from the Panama Division of Forestry were called to
the scene. Additional aid was supplied by St. Joe Paper
Company firefighting crews. Supplemental help from
Calhoun, Liberty and Leon Counties were placed on a
stand-by basis if needed. :.
Ignition from the head fire was so intense that it jumped .

At the time of the above mentioned fire, a culprit ignited,
a fire two miles south of Howards Creek subdivision which'
burned 40 acres. To make matters worse, another arsonist
set a blaze four miles south of Port St Joe near Dead Man's
Curve on U.S. Highwa. 98 Photos were taken by Division of
Forestry pilot, Dee S. Paffos, who was at the scene directing r i

SOMEBODY ASKED me the other day to do
my thing again and make it rain. We need it
badly. I see where we have even been declared a
disaster area because of the dry weather. This
makes us all eligible to get loans of from five to
eight percent to cover the loss of our crops.
I don't know of anything else to do, except
wash my car, and it's already been washed this
year. Besides, it's too hot to get out washing
I think I will apply for a disaster loan,
however. The dry weather just ruined my
first tomato crop before I realized it was
happening. The other two crops have been
watered periodically and they are looking pretty
good. That first crop was a disaster.
I had eight bushes planted in my first field.
When they were planted, tomatoes were bringing
59c a pound. Using that figure as a yardstick and
the fact that I should have harvested at least 10'
pounds of tomatoes from each bush, I figure I
can get a loan for at least $40.00. That would go a
long way toward paying the water bill to keep the
other part of my crop alive.

I SEE WHERE President Carter owed no
taxes on a $50,000 taxable income. But, being the
generous fellow that he is, he went ahead and
paid the government $5,000 anyhow, just in good
faith. He said he felt everyone should pay some
I agree, and if my tax bill was any criteria of
how much one should pay, President Carter
didn't pay near enough on a taxable income of
$50,000. I didn't make near that much money last
year, and I paid more taxes than President
Carter did. It's true I didn't have an $11,000 tax
credit for adding machinery to my peanut shed,
but that's only because I didn't have a $1 million
peanut shed in the first place. If I had added
machinery to The Star's printing plant to get
my tax credit, I wouldn't have had enough left
to buy electricity to run my air conditioner, or
water to put on my remaining crop, nor to put
ground beef on the table.
I think what I and others should do is to get in
touch with the people who figured the Presi-
dent's taxes due on a $50,000 income and have
him figure ours. We might get a refund.

article which appeared in the papers the other
day saying the President is advocating a small
stipend of $14 billion be taken from the general
treasury and placed in the Social Security fund to
keep it from going broke. This little ploy has the
full endorsement and backing of the AFL-CIO.
The government makes you and I pay a
certain amount each week into the Social
Security fund and gives us an understanding that
the money will be there for our use when we
retire. The article I read said the Social Security
trust fund will be broke, without aid, by 1979 for
disability payments and by 1983 for aged
workers and survivors.
Also, what this article tells me is that there
will be no money left when I get to retirement
age. What happened to my money? I have paid
the maximum for nearly 20 years now, and
somebody in the future is going to have to pay
withholding taxes if I am to get back what I have
paid in for retirement.
If the government is going to handle my
future like this, I had rather they let me put my
Social Security in IRA funds or insurance, or
some other retirement fund.

government begins to regulate the number of

increase in the birth rate last year is causing
such regulation to be considered.

Navy Lab Develops

Tools for

In the second program in
:,5two weeks concerning the
-activities at the Navy Lab in
Panama City, Rotarians here
in Port St. Joe learned from
S:Tom Odum, in charge of the
diving and salvage operations,
s, that the Lab has been respon-
sible for the development of
m uch sophisticated underseas
" hardware.
S"It is a challenge to put man
deep in the ocean, but we have
Done that", Odum said. "'Now
that we have him there, we
v must develop tools for him to
work with. We have also been
successful in doing this."
The Navy Lab was the
developer of the Sealabs I and
: I which put people living on'
the bottom of the ocean for
days and weeks at a time and
provided the support for un-
&-derseas experiments and stu-
.:dy. Odum also showed the
R- otarians pictures of tools
.they have developed to raise
sunken subs and other vessels.
S Odum said the biggest prob-
lem facing the Lab now is
Developing the capability for
keeping men in deep, cold
water, capable of working.
-"We can put them down there
;'now, but they're cold, and a.
man can't work when he is
Odum also explained an
Underwater communications
system the Navy Lab has
developed which uses sound
for transmission of voice rath-
er than impulses through the
pulses M


air. The development was a
breakthrough in underwater
"Tools, breathing, and
temperatures are the prob-
lems with getting things ac-
Scomplished under the water",
Odum said, "and we're mak-
ing progress in all of these
Odum also told the club of a
system being developed to
scrape, repair and paint a ship
hull while the ship is still in the
water. "This will save consi-
erable money now spent haul-
ing ships out into drydock for
this type work", he said.

Area Counties Oppose Dam On River

BRISTOL-Officials from five Apalachi-
cola River counties ended a longtime quarrel
Wednesday of last week when they drafted a
resolution opposing construction of a dam on
the river.
Attending a meeting of the newly formed
Apalachicola River Committee, the county.
officials said their united stand would quell
the controversy over the dam and make way
'for other river development planning.
*In' the past, .Gadsden, Jackson and
Liberty counties have supported the proposed.
dam, while Gulf, Calhoun and Franklin have
opposed it.
Representatives from all but Gulf County
said last Wednesday their boards would

support the resolution. Gulf County did not
have a representative at the meeting but is
expected.to approve the resolution, since the
local Board has been unanimously Opposed to
a dam on the river for years.
The resolution, which will go to boards of
county commissioners for approval, opposes
any alteration of the Apalachicola River that
would disrupt natural cycles.and jeopardize
the oyster and fishing industry..
However,.economic development and the
creation of new jobs and businesses compat-
ible with a clean environment would be.
The proposed Apalach dam and a
nine-foot navigational channel on the river

have surfaced as vital topics at recent
meetings of the committee.
But committee members say the dam
issue has clouded the real issue facing the
residents: who should decide the future
development and management of the river.
The control of the river, they say, should
be in the hands of local residents and not state
and federal officials.
The Apalachicola River Committee is
made up of three representatives from each
county and officials from 13 state agencies.
Information on the rier system will be
given to residents at public meetings in each
of the counties. The state agencies will help
the counties coordinate their planning activi-

ties in the river basin area.
"We have tried to get down to planning
but the issue of the dam wouldn't go away,"
said Ed Leucks of the state Division of
Planning. "We need to get beyond the dam
and on to greater issues."
Leucks said discussion of the dam
continues to surface even though the Corps of
Engineers says there are no firm plans to
build 't.
Bill Reed, director of the Corps' .plan-
ning division, said the 'Corps is exploring
alternatives to a dam that'still would result in
a deeper river channel.
The committee will hold a public meeting
in Quincy July 6 at the country club. Lt. Gov.
Jim Williams will be guest speaker.
