State Getting




Out of Rural




Road Paving



County Must Take Over


- Department of Transporta-
tion District Engineer Bill Lee
told the'Gulf County 'Commis-
sion *Tuesday that the DOT
will be turning ownership of
all but primary highways over
to the County for ownership by
July 1, 1980.
"The only roads the state
will own and maintain after
that date will be Highways 71
and 98", the engineer said.
The DOT will no longer be in
the business of paving second-
ary and local roads at the
request of the county.
This doesn't mean the pav-
ing program which has bene-
fitted the county in the past
will come to an end, Lee said.
"The money presently being
used by the state to pave and
maintain secondary roads in
the county will be turned over
to the individual county to do
the same work. The DOT will"
just no longer be responsible
for doing the engineering,
planning, calling for bids and
supervising construction.
Each county will just have to
take care of its own work in
"' this area".
..--. .-..The -engineer 'said the DOT
is taking the step in an
economy move. "We don't
have the money to continue
this operation as we have in
the past."
Lee said that the new pro-
gram will give the county
more lee-way with their sec-
ondary funds. "In the past, we
spent these funds strictly on
paving. The county can spend
them on any transportation
purpose. The only stipulation
is that you must bid off any job
which will cost more than
$50,000. If the job is less than
this amount, you can do it
yourself with your own
crews."
Lee said that under the new
program, State Road 22 which
connects Wewahitchka with
Panama City and the Over-
street Road will be turned

Resign at

Hospital
Dr Shirley Simpson, local
physician tendered her tem-
porary resignation from the
Municipal Hospital staff to the
Hospital Board at its regular
meeting Tuesday evening.
Dr. Simpson told the Board
that her action was a tempo-
rary thing and that she would
apply for re-admission to the
staff in the future. She said she
wwas offering her resignation
for reasons of a personal na-
ture.
"I intend to continue to
operate my office on regular
hours", she said.
Other resignations were re-
ceived from several person-
nel.
Mrs. Louise Kessell, records
administrator, has retired. A
registered nurse, Mrs. Dorlis
Falkner, has also retired after
many years of service. Mrs.
Betty Sue Wright, former
superintendent of nurses, has
tendered her resignation and
Mrs. Sara Maddox, who joined
the staff only recently to fill
out a deficiency of registered
nurses on thd staff, has ten-
ldered her resignation. Mrs.
Maddox said she would. stay
on duty until a registered
nurse replacement could be
Shared.
The Hospital administration
is interviewing candidates this
week end to fill the vacant

over to the county to maintain.
"We will put all roads in first
class condition before they a-re
turned over to you", he said.
"If our repair of the roads
takes beyond the July 1, 1980
deadline, we will retain own-
ership of the roads until they
are put in first class shape,
then turn them over to you."
Chairman Everette Owens
asked Lee how much the
county could expect to receive
in money from the state from
the gas tax source in order to
continue the paving program.
Lee said the amount varies,
but stated the county would
have $280,000 in new money in
its paving account next fiscal
year.
Lee said all current paving
projects under way will be


completed and no new pro-
jects started which cannot be
completed by the July 1,; 1980
deadline. Some of the projects
presently underway are the
resurfacing of Long Avenue
and repair of the Industrial
Road here in the Port St. Joe
vicinity.
Under the new funding sys-
tem, the state Comptroller's
office will keep the paving
money in Tallahassee. The
counties will request the mon-
ey as it is spent or obligated.
Lee said the county will be
allowed to keep a 60 day
working account in their local
bank account. "All expendi-
tures will made by payment
from the Comtroller's office,
even though you will authorize
the expenditure". Lee said.

Delegate Forms for Democrat


Convention Are Now Available


Cecil G. Costin, Jr., County
Chairman of Gulf County De-
mocratic Executive Commit-
tee announced today that qua-
lifying forms for delegate
selection for the upcoming
Florida Democratic Conven-
tion are now available. The
Convention will be held at the
Sheraton Twin Towers in Or-
lando, the weekend of
November 18, 19 and 20, 1977.
The Convention will include
many prominent state and
national Democratic leaders.


According to Chairman
Costin, "Local county caucu-
ses will be held throughout the
State on October 15. At that
time, delegates and alternates
will be selected from among
those who have filed these
qualifying forms."
Each county has been. allo-
cated a number of delegates
equal to its weighted voting on
the State Executive Commit-
tee, which is five for Gulf
County, two of whom will be
elected.


Qualifying forms will be
available by contacting Coun-
ty Chairman Cecil G. Costin,
Jr. at 221 Reid Avenue, Port
St. Joe, or Samuel A. Patrick
at Gulf County Courthouse,
Port St. Joe.
State Democratic Party
chairman Alfredo Duran said,
"The main activity of the,
Convention will be the consi-
deration and adoption of a
platform dealing with State-
wide issues."

marine complexes throughout
the nation to utilize more fully

Much of this harvest" is now
going to waste, according to
local and national seafood
dealers and producers.
At present, there 'are instal-
lations of the type being
sought for Port St. Joe in
Brownsville, Texas and a new
one which just opened shop in
Virginia. Coastal Plains is
now .eager to get such an
installation on the Gulf Coast.
Port St. Joe has joined the
race for the facility in the
'hiring of Jones."
Present installations of this
type include huge complexes
for processing, canning and
marketing seafood of all
types, marine repair work on
boats and .other marine tools,
warehousing, canning plants,
etc.
Presently, seafood produ-
cers say much of the seafood
catch is thrown back in the
ocean because of a lack of ice
or preserving capabilities to
keep it fresh, especially dur-
ing heavy production periods.
An installation such as pro-
posed by Central Plains would

ENGINEER REPORTS
Bob Gehrig, the City's en-
ginreer, with Smith and Gilles-
pie of Jacksonville, gave the
Commission a progress report
Tuesday night on the several
projects presently under con-
struction and in the planning
stages.'
Gehrig reported that work
was stopped on construction of
the new water tower late last
week. The engineer said, "The
tower drawings were six de-
grees off which would have
weakened the 'structural de-
sign." The drawings had a
door in the base of the tower
located six inches out of line
from where it should be. "This
would weaken the structural
part of the tower, so we
stopped the work until we
could find out how to correct
the problem".
Gehrig said the Pittsburg-
Des Moines firm, who is
building the tank, came up
with a solution which he,
Gehrig, feels will allow the
error to be corrected without
tearing the tower down and
starting over, which would
make it even stronger than the
original design. "They are to

School Board member Paul
Sewell asked a question at a meeting
the other day we had hoped we
wouldn't ever hear again. Sewell
asked "what are we going to do for
Wewa? when George Tapper made
an offer to match money for a
playground at Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary School. We think Sewell would
have been just as far off base if the
offer was made for Wewa and Sewell
had asked "what are we going to do
for Port St. Joe?"
The needs of the schools at each
end of the county are unique with the
school and to furnish services,
equipment or classes offered for one
just because it is furnished the other
is definitely not in the best interest of
the student and his education. It is

matter which school it is, so far as
the finances will allow, whether that
school is in Wewa or St. Joe". Those
are our sentiments.
Member Gene Raffield pointed
out that a board in the past had
agreed unanimously to accept a half
million grant for Wewa when Port
St. Joe nor Highland View received
not a penny from the funds. The
word "unanimous" is the key word.
The Gulf County School Board is
in the business of providing for all
our school children as best they can.
If one community in the county
provides extra financing to give a
little something to their schools, that
is to their credit. We don't think it's
the School Board's business to try
and even up things at the other end
of the county in such an instance, no
matter which end of the county is the
target of their largess.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


Old timers say that after an extremely cold
winter the bug population will be decreased
dramatically during the growing season to
follow. From what we see, hear and read the last
few weeks, this isn't necessarily so unless the
growing season following the cold spell is
supposed to have the normal amount of moisture
to go with the season.
The corn crop here in the southeast-what
finally made during the devastating drought
which plagued us during the normal gardening
and farming season-has been all but wiped out..,
by a scourge of worms invading the forming ears
and completely eating them up.
Gardens which have survived the dry
weather have had the leaves of the plants
stripped over night by a horde of worms and
insects and over in Lynn Haven, they have
declared war on an invasion of army worms
which are invading virtually every lawn in the
town, stripping the grass and flowering plants
and shrubs of their foliage.
Port St. Joe's City Hall hasn't been immune
to the parade of pests. Clerk Mike Wright, a
flower and plant nutj decided to renovate the
planters in front of City Hall, make them more
interesting and produce a succulent fruit or
vegetable in the process. He planted strawber-
ries, egg plant, peppers, tomatoes and. .
cotton!
Mike wrote to his aunt in Alabama and asked
her to send him the cotton seed to plant along the
walk approaching the front door of City Hall to
give those approaching the building something to
talk about, provide a lush green foliage and for a

Opportunity to Prove

That Democracy Works


To the Editor:
We feel that the people of
Gulf County are entitled to a
report on the seeming delay on
getting petitions into their
hands asking for the vacating
of the County Commission
seat now held by Leo Ken-
nedy.
We the people, know by first
hand of the bungling, inept-
ness, and the gross incompe-
tence displayed by Mr. Ken-
nedy in his contacts with the St
Joe Squad of the Volunteer
Ambulance Service. The
question was how best to pre-
sent our common grievance
and our common sense of dis-
pleasure with this uncalled for
and unnecessary harassment
of these civic minded people.
They had been giving to all of
us, their best effort to provide
the people of Gulf County what
is acknowledged to be one of
the finest ambulance services
in the whole state of Florida.
In order to be sure that we
were on the right track in this
protest, talks have been held
with elected officials and em-
ployees of the county, with
business people and profes-


sional people in the county,
with 15 different people in the
Governor's office and in the
office of the Secretary of
State, and the Attorney Gen-
eral's office on four different
trips to Tallahassee. The peti-
tions now in the hands of the
many people who have volun-
teered to get signatures are a
result of all of these talks.
Now the next step is up to all
of us. We must give everyone
a chance to sign these com-
plaints. We have a golden op-
portunity to prove that Ameri-
can Democracy really works
and that just common folks
like us really can be in control
of their government. So let's
carry these petitions .with us
when we go to work-when we
go to our club meetings-when
we go to pay our bills-when
we go shopping-when we go
out to eat-when we go to
church-and make sure that
every single person that we
know or meet, who lives in
Gulf County, the whole county,
has a chance to register their
protest.
Let all of us throughout the
County in our daily prayers


ask our Heavenly Father for
guidance and help in making
this a significant and mean-
ingful demonstration of
government for and by the
people as it can exist only in
our Free America.
Now! Let's all go to wdrk!
Call me if you want to be part
of this, or if you need supplies,
the result is up to each one of
us individually. Do your part.

Bridge

Closed

The Florida Department
of Transportation will be
closing the Overstreet
bridge on State Road 386
for repairs on Tuesday
morning, August 16 at 7:30
a.m.
These repairs will re-
quire closing the bridge to
roadway traffic for approx-
imately 24 hours. The
bridge will be open for boat
traffic during this period.
Vehicular traffic desiring
to travel between Mexico
Beach and Wewahitchka
should detour through Port
St. Joe.


What's


Next?

The Ike Schneider family
of Overstreet is beginning
to wonder when it will all
end.
Last Friday Mrs. Schnei-
der had an automobile
accident east of Highway
98 on the Overstreet Road.
She was returning home
from a few hours at the
beach. As she was driving
north on SR 386, approach-
ing a guard rail on the
road, she met two cars
.travelling in her direction
which were ridia "the yel-
low divider line.
To avoid contact with the
oncoming cars she pulled
to the right and the wheels
slipped off the road. The
vehicle collided with the
guard rails before Mrs.
Schneider could get back
on the road. She suffered
facial injuries and required
the services of the Gulf
County Volunteer Ambu-
lance Service. The vehicle
she was driving was totaled
out.
In April of 1976, fire
destroyed their home at
Overstreet. In April of this
year, lightning struck their
present home and did con-
siderable damage to the
home and its contents.
What's'next?


The Small Business Admini-
stration announced last week
that Economic Injury Disaster
Loans are available for small
businesses as a result of
damage sustained by farmers
and farmers suffering sub-
stantial economic injury in
Gulf County.
The purpose of Economic
Injury Disaster Loans is to
permit small businesses and
farmers to meet obligations
which could have been met
had farmers not suffered crop
losses as a result of drought
conditions.
Applicants must have sus-
tained substantial economic
injury and furnish evidence at
to the extent of such injury.
Injury may be indicated by a
larger than normal volume of
receivables, lower sales vol-
ume, slow inventory turnover,
development of delinquencies
in trade payables and delin-
quent mortgage payments.
Loans may be made for work-
ing capital purposes to small
businesses because farmers
are unable to pay for mer-
chandise, goods or services,


little interest in the fall when the cotton bolls
began to ripen.
The bugs are trying to change all that.
Just like the mid-'30's in Alabama, the boll
weevil has invaded City Hall and was playing
havoc with the cotton, hollowing out the young
forming bolls and causing them to fall off the
stalk.
Mike got right to work and employed the
expertise of Joe Badger, po novice when it comes y
to cotton, to doctor up the plants and try to cause .
n. aUt~l.a Re.n_:,p.O.p 6co ton to survive the
onslaught of the bugs. Joe says ie has arrested
the wholesale destruction of the bolls by a %
generous application of poison, two or three
times, to the dining bugs.
If things get too bad, Mike and Joe may just
call iri the services of an aerial spray service to
spray the cotton before it is all ruined.

President Carter and the Congress have
slipped it to us again. Friday. the House of
Representatives voted to adopt Carter's plan to
save our energy resources, which is composed of
taxing us for buying a gallon of gasoline, even
more than we are currently being taxed.
Congress did oppose the President on a
proposed 5c per gallon tax on gasoline in an
attempt to discourage the people from using so
much. The ploy of taxing the raw crude oil
production at the refiner level will also add from
5c to 8c to a gallon of gas. It is said we, the tax
payer, will get the money back in tax credits at
the end of the year. If that isn't the biggest
boon-doggle we ever heard of!
It would seem to us, that with all the experts
the government is paying to work for us and to
serve in elective office, there should be enouglhk.
brains, collectively, to come up with a solution tol,
ration out our remaining energy resources in a.
manner which would not add to inflation. Highe ,
prices, in any form, can only add to inflation and,
cause it to take off once more in an incline which
hurts the ones the most who can afford it the
least.
If all the energy that was being expended on
trying to figure out-a way to levy more taxes
were put to use in seeking alternate energy
sources, we think the people would be better
served, now and in the future.

Are you puzzled as to why you haven't seen a
story on local political servants filing.their net
worth statements? In case you are, I'll settle that
puzzle by telling you that you won't find the
statements here in these pages.
The reason we're not printing the statements
is that we think the statements an invasion of
privacy for the individual involved. We don't feel
they prevent shenanigans with the public trust
whatever.
If a politician is determined to use his office
for illegal and selfish purposes, no statement of
net worth or declaration of property ownership
and income is going to keep him from doing so. If V
there is something in his statement which would
be detrimental to his position, he'll just leave it
out or alter it so as not to be suspicious.
In other words, if a public servant is bent on
robbing you, he's going to find a way to do it. If
he is honest (as most men are) there is no need in
requiring him to fill out the disclosure report in
the first place.
In other words, we feel the disclosure reports
are just a waste of time and money.

from most of the nurseries and

perennial. It produces fleshy
roots that will sustain tme top
of the plant through most of
the adverse dry periods. Be-
ginning in early summer, the
plant will push out beautiful
light lilac flowers. There is a
pink and a white variety as
well. Once established, the
Stokes aster will be around for
many years, Plant in full sun

Daylilies have come a long
way from' the original types.
In early periods of planting, .
this fine perennial's flowers
lasted only a day. Hybridizers
have now developed new col-
ors and longer lasting flowers.
The plant is easy to grow. It
has very fleshy roots that
store moisture for the survival
of the plant through the winter,
and dry periods. When planted
in .masses or borders, this is
one of the perennials that will
stop any passerby. Plants will

by his lovely wife, Eletha, in
the cottage of Max Fleming at
Howards Creek. He was sur-
prised with a huge birthday
c'cke depicting a forest and a
Seven-point buck. The 70 trees
and the seven antlers repre-
sented Mr. Nixon's 77 years.
Mr. Nixon was born on
August 7, 1900, and although
he is retired, he still remains
busy. He was a game warden

Pate Wins
Trip to

Mexico City
-Firestone dealer Frank
Pate of Port St. Joe recently
returned from an all-expense
paid trip to Mexico City, in a
sales incentive contest spon-
sored by The Firestone Tire &
Rubber Company.
Pate, who operates his tire
dealership at 214 Monument
Ave., qualified for the trip by
compiling an outstanding
sales record for the first six
months of 1977.
He and his wife, Evelyn,
visited Mexico City with other
Firestone dealers and their
wives from throughout the
country who won trips in the
contest. They spent five days
and four nights in Mexico City.
Pate has been a Firestone
Sealer in Port St. Joe for 15
Sears.

sociation (FNGA). It has foli-
age much like the Iris of the
north. Full sun is where the
plant does best, although it
can tolerate some mild or light
shade. The plant produces
blue and white flowers dotted
with a slight trace of yellow.
Like the daylily, plants grow
rapidly and will need dividing
a few years after establish-
ment. The Morea also grows
easily from seed and will
bloom the second year after
planting. It is almost free
from insects and diseases.
Agapanthus is one of the
finest of all perennials. It is so
striking that almost everyone
should have a large planting.
The leaves are strapped
shaped. When the tall, sturdy,
slender flower-shoot begins, to
grow, expect something excit-
ing. Atop this growth will be
hundreds of flowers in a very
delicate blue. There is a dwarf
and -.white variety. When
planted in full sun, the plant
really provides a show. Com-
bine with other perennials--it
is a strong grower and can
hold its own.
With such a wide choice of
perennials, visit your favorite
nurseryman and select a
number to plant during the
rainy season. Next year you
can enjoy added beauty.

Emergency Medical Services for Area


Assisted by Panhandle Regional Council


What'has Florida done to
Protect you in:case of sudden
illness or disability? In 1973
Florida enacted the Emer-
gency Medical Services Law
which requires:
-State licensing of ambu-
lance services.
-State certified Emergen-
cy Medical Technicians
(EMT) on every ambulance
run.
-Radio communications
between ambulances and hos-
pitals. ...
-Ambulance drivers to suc-
cessfully complete a driving
course.
-All ambulances must be
inspected -and permitted by,
the State for safety.
-All ambulances carry es-
sential medical equipment
and meet all safety codes and
design standards as specified
by the State EMS Office.
According to recent statis-
tics, Florida emergency medi-
cal service systems transport
one-half million victims an-
nually and 5.25 percent of
these transports involve non-
Florida residents. Every 12
minutes someone in Florida
suffers a heart attack and'
every 58 minutes someone in
Florida has a stroke. Also, one
out of four people will suffer
an accident of some. degree
requiring first aid or medical
attention this year. Fifty-
seven percent of these acci-
dents occur away from home.
Florida's Emergency Medi-
cal Services Program has
helped reduce needless loss of
life. Sice the EMS pro-
.gram's inception in 1973 there
has been a 27 percent reduc-
tion in traffic related deaths, a
21 percent reduction in. non-
traffic related accidental
deaths and a seven percent
reduction in heart attack
deaths and a 27 percent reduc-
tion in stroke deaths.
Florida is a national leader
in developing Emergency
Medical Service Systems and
^ is exceeded only by Maryland
m in ratio of trained EMT's to
ambulances. Florida is one of
only a half-dozen states where
virtually all emergency runs
i are in acceptable vehicles.
Florida also ranks among the
top three states in the per-
centage of ambulances that


can communicate with the
hospital served.
A viable facilitator of Flor-
ida's Emergency Medical Ser-
vices System is the Florida
Panhandle Regional EMS
Management Organization,
Inc. The purpose of this organ-
ization is to upgrade emer-
gency medical services in the
18 counties of the Florida Pan-
handle by assisting in the co-
ordination of various emer-
gency services, providing in-
service training for EMS per-
sonnel, and by initiating a
comprehensive EMS public
education program for the
region. Activities thus far in-
clude the following:
-Standardized ambulance
forms.
-Developed mutual aid
agreements and transfer
agreements.
-Established medical co-
ordination of both EMS field
training and on-the-scene
care.
- -Initiated the development
of treatment protocols.


-Circulated teaching films
on extrication, defensive dri-
ving, and EMS public educa-
tion.
-Conducted seminars for
EMS personnel.
-Surveyed the status of
local EMS resources.
-Disseminated inforria-.
tion through project newslet-
ter.
-Collaborated with local
Heart Associations, Red Cross
and public service agencies to
expand EMS public education
and self-help programs.
-Conducted mock disaster
drill.
-Assisted in publicity for
911 System.
-Supported CPR training
through publicity by distribu-
tion of training manikins and
by provision of CPR instruc-
tion.
-Experimented with inno-
vative approaches to EMS
public education.
-Utilized mass media to
promote local concern about
emergency medical services.


-Initiated an EMS public
education film project cur-
rently underway.
-Established an equipment
library for training purposes,


to be used region-wide.
Distribution of phone stick-
ers for 911 and Ambulance
Service's emergency numbers
to resort areas.


Education Guaranteed

for Handicapped Child


By Cathy Hanlon
Florida Statutes and, in
particular, chapters 228-237,
guarantee all handicapped
students of school age (five to
18) 13 years of appropriate
education. By the 1977-78
school year, in addition to the
handicapped children now
provided education by public
schools, severely and pro-
foundly 'retarded children,
ages seven through 16, must
be in school or be exempted by
the county School Board. Pub-
lic schools must establish or
provide programs for these
children by September of this
year.
So that your handicapped
child can get an education,.


you will need to work with the
schools. You as a parent have
the responsibility of bringing
your handicapped child to the
attention of school authorities
for an education.
If you need help or desire
further information pertain-
ing to the services offered
handicapped or disabled chil-
dren in Gulf County contact
one of the following people:
James Hanlon, 648-5688,
Gulf County Assoc. for Re-
tarded Citizens, Education
Committee Chairman, or:
Laura A. Geddie, 229-6124,
Coordinator, Exceptional Stu-
dent Education, Gulf County
School Board.

It was a warm sun-shiny day Saturday iand this group of
pretty little girls didn't have a thing to do, so they just got
busy and worked up a parade. They dressed in their
costumes and started parading up and down the streets in the
10th Street area, showing off "Little Miss Port St. Joe",


seated on her portable throne in the wagon. The young ladies

The Garden Center on
Eighth Street, still standing,
originally St. Joseph's Catho-
lic Church, the oldest
church building in Port St.
Joe, is currently one of the
newest projects of the St.
Joseph Historical Society.
They wish to place a historical
plaque on the building. The
members of the Port St. Joe
Garden Club have approved
this project, and the wordipg
on the plaque will be subject to
their approval. In the meeting
of the society last week, Sat-
urday, August 6, the group
voted to place an order for the
placque as soon as the word-
- ing is approved.
The main business of the
August meeting was the final
action on the revised by-laws
of the society. Both constitu-
tion and by-laws were ap-
proved by all the members

attending and several of the
members unable to attend had
called earlier to express ap-
proval. All members are
urged to preserve their copies.
The by-laws were presented
by Mrs. Nobie Stone, chair-
man.
The society voted also to buy
a new pole to replace the one
that had supported the his-
torical marker at the old
cemetery. The marker was
intact, but the pole had been
destroyed by vandalism.
Another new project is to have
the gazebo in the old cemetery
stained and varnished to in-
sure its preservation.
Attending the August meet-
ing were: Mrs. Ralph Swatts,
president; Mrs. James T. Mc-

SGroup Speaks to Water Planners


Federal water resources
planners meeting in Atlanta,
July 29, heard from the Tri-
Rivers Waterway Develop-
ment Association, which is
concerned with development
of the Apalachicola, Chatta-
hoochee Flint Waterway.
Addle Middlebrooks, coor-
dinator, represented the Flor-
ida-Georgia-Alabama Group
at one of a series of hearings
being held throughout the
United States by the Water
Resources Council, the execu-
tive agency which advises the


President on water matters.
Issues to be addressed were
printed in the July 15 Federal
Register, and the Council is to
make its final report in six
months.
"We were afraid this hear-
ing might just be a meaning-
less exercise, because of the
shortness of time and com-
plexity of the issues," Mrs.
Middlebrooks said. "But I was
pleased to see a -number of
federal agency people in the
audience taking notes. As we
raised new points, they perken

honors over the team of Ash-

Third place was another

team of Russ Hill, Chauncey

two teams finished the 18-hole
course with 66's, six under

Mrs. Middlebrooks said the
speakers were about evenly
divided between pro-deve-
lopment groups like Tri-Riv-
ers and environmentalists.
"Oddly enough, we agreed
pretty well on what the meth-
ods should be for arriving at
decisions," she said, "though
we disagreed on what would
be the most desirable out-
come."
FLORIDA PROGRESS
One of the representatives
there, Mrs. Middlebrooks re-

Florida Audubon Society and
the Florida Defenders of the

differences over the Apalachi-

NOTE OF APPRECIATION
We sincerely appreciate the
many acts of kindness extend-
ed to us during the recent loss
of our beloved mother. It is
very comforting to be sur-
rounded by friends at such a
time. Your prayers were a
source of strength to us. The
beautiful flowers brightened
our spirits and the delicious
food strengthened our bodies.
May God richly bless each
of you.
The Arnette Family


Stan Whitlach, instructor
for the Dale Carnegie course,
currently being taught here,
spoke to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, giving them a talk
on what motivates people and
the value of motivation in any
endeavor.
Whitlach pointed out to the
club members that "even
giving something away is a
selling job". The speaker said
the biggest motivator in the
world is, "I want to do
something for my community
and be recognized for it."
Whitlach pointed to recogni-
tion, attitude, honesty and
sincerity as some of the most
valuable tools available in


motivating men to do more of
a better job.
Guest of the club was Dr.
Morris Pepperhall of Scotts-
boro, Alabama.


Dr. Gant

Gets Degree
Dr. Raymond C. Gant re-
ceived his degree in Dental
Surgery recently. He is the son
of Mrs. Lela Gant, 149 Avenue
A, Port St. Joe.
Dr. Gant and his family will
be living in Japan for the next
three years, where he's sta-
tioned at Kadena USAF Base.

STREET LIGHTS
After nearly 10 years of
mulling the idea over, the
Commission decided Tuesday
night to replace all incandes-
cant street lights in the City
with mercury vapor lights.
A survey ran by Florida
Power Corporation showed
the City still has 117 incandes-
cent lights operating. The
report, given to the City by
Jim Cox, local FPC manager,
said it would cost the City an
additional $203.26 per month to
change to the mercury vapor.
It is presently costing the City
approximately $17,000 a year
for street lights.
The Commission agreed to
go ahead with the conversion.
MOBILE HOMES
James Dumas, a former
resident of Port St. Joe who
has worked for the past sever-
al years in Washington, D.C.,
and who has now retired and
moved back here, brought an
old problem face to face with
the Commission Tueday night.
Dumas owns a lot on Avenue
B and now wants to retire and
put a mobile home on his lot
for his retirement home. The
City Zoning Code makes no
provision for mobile homes,
however, so Dumas is stuck
with a mobile home and a lot
on which he can't park it.
Dumas told the Commission
that the mobile home would
not downgrade the neighbor-
hood and went on to say that
many people in, North Port St.
Joe may improve the neigh-
borhood if they were allowed
to buy and set up mobile
homes in the area.
The Commission agreed
with Dumas thinking and rec-
ognized the need for areas in
the City where the homes
could be used. Mayor Frank
Pate told Dumas the Commis-
sion has been aware of the
problem for some time and
that some attempt would be
made to come up with a
solution which would allow
some use of the homes in the
City by the next meeting
night, which is next Tuesday
night'.
Dumas thanked the Board
and noted that he didn't have
the money to pay cash for a
.conventional home and that,
at retirement age, he didn't
care to start paying for a
home. "I can buy a nice
mobile home", he said, "and it
would allow me to spend my
retirement in relative comfort
without a heavy financial
burden".
OTHER BUSINESS
-Received a list of needed
improvements at Washington
Recreation Center from Willie
Otis Smith, representing the
Board of Directors of the
Center.

Orientation for

New Students
Orientation activities for all
new students and all entering
seventh graders will be held at
Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School on Thursday, August
25, 9:00 a.m. 12:00 noon,
E.D.T. School buses will pick
up students for this activity.
Principal Ken Herring says
of orientation, "It helps to
make the new student feel
more at home in a new en-
vironment and is of great
benefit to the student."
All parents of new students
are urged to see that their
children attend.


One of two things will hap-
pen in the future here in Gulf
County: there will be no rock
concerts held in the county or
it will cost an arm and a leg to
buy a ticket if promoters
comply with all the regula-
tions now on the books before
such a concert can be held.
Approval was made of an
ordinance Tuesday which
would set up requirements for
promoters of the concerts to
comply with before a permit
will be given.
Promoters must have an
occupational license, provide
sanitary facilities, insect con-
trol, on-the-spot medical per-
sonnel, ambulance service,
food services, flood-lighting,
traffic control, parking space,
fire protection and various
other requirements.
The promoters must, in
addition, provide a map of the
concert area, name the per-
formers and vendors to the
festivals and a copy of their
contract. Put up a sizeable
deposit to cover any unfore-
seen expense by local govern-
ment and limit the shows to
those age 18 and above, unless
accompanied by a parent or
guardian.
The ordinance was instigat-
ed by a recent rock concert in
the Overstreet area which
provided none of these things.
CASTIGATE CONTRACTOR
The Commission had the
performance of Newkirk Con-
struction Company, installing
the Oak Grove Water and
Sewer system, called to their
attention again Tuesday mor-
ning.
County inspector E. F. Gunn
told the Board the contractor
is not patching the paving
where a cut is made to put a
service line across the street.
Gunn said, "Newkirk claims
it isn't in his contract to patch
the paving where he makes
cuts for lines". Gunn said the
contractor is patching the
paving removed to put down
trunk lines, but is only putting
dirt in the small cuts made for
service lines. "Even if the
county re-paves the streets
when the work is completed, a
base must be put in these cuts
or the paving surface will
sink down. These roads will be
impassable in a short time if
something isn't done".
Chairman Owens instructed
Gunn, attorney Rish and en-
gineer Robert Nations to meet
with Newkirk and come to an
understanding about patching
cuts made in streets. The
Commission wants the cuts
patched.
In other Oak Grove water
business, the Board agreed to
extend the system into a
cluster of 16 lots owned by
David and Michael Roche.
The Roches are to pay the
minimum bill to the system
until the lots are sold and built
on.
CORPS OF ENGINEERS
A letter from Col. Blalock,
commanding officer of the
Mobile office of the Corps of
Engineers told the County he
knew of no way the Corps
could absorb certain costs for
maintaining the Gulf County
Canal. The County was noti-
fied recently of their responsi-
bility of providing spoil areas
for canal maintenance. In the
past this maintenance has
consisted mostly of putting up
huge dikes to contain spoil
dredged from the canal.
Col. Blalock's letter re-
minded the Commission their
agreement with the Corps in
taking over the canal was that
the county would assist with
the expense of maintaining it.
Col. Blalock's letter said,
"We know of no method which
will allow us to remove Gulf
County from these responsi-

Up the Creek Without A Paddle.


All too often boat enthu-
siasts find themselves liter-
ally up the proverbial creek--
or on some other body of
water--without a paddle or
worse without a motor or even
a boat. The reason--simple
carelessness.
Boaters know and practice
water safety rules. Most obey
the navigational laws. How-
ever, many fail to utilize
crime resistance techniques in
pursuing the pleasures deriv-
ed from boating. If practiced
diligently, a few preventive
measures could well prevent
the theft of a boat or valuable
accessories such as motors,
life jackets, oars and CB
radios.
Small boats such as canoes,
rowboats and motor boats are
easy to steal and thereafter to
conceal and transport away. If
it is necessary to leave such a
craft unattended, secure it
with a good lock and a
tempered steel chain fastened
to a solidly fixed post or a tree.
Remember, the boat is only as
secure as the object to which it
is chained.
Larger boats should also be


securely fastened when possi-
ble. In addition, by removing a
necessary part of the motor,
you make it difficult .for
someone to drive the boat
away, to steal it or take it for a
joy ride.
Permanently mark your
craft with the boat's name and
your driver's license number
preceded by your state's ini-
tials. Do the same with all
your accessories. This may
deter a thief from taking
them. Even if it doesn't stop a
thief, it will make the property
identifiable if it is recovered
by the police. It is also
important to keep a record of
all the serial numbers and
descriptions of radios, motors
and other gear for the purpose
of identification in case of
theft.
When you have to leave your
boat unattended, take a few
minutes to lock up your gear
and accessories. Putting
items in the trunk of your car
is much safer than leaving
them loose laying in and
around your boat.
Do not hesitate to call the
police and report suspicious

Slight Changes Made In




GCCC Enrollment Plan


Students enrolling at Gulf
Coast Community College this
fall may be surprised to find
that registration procedures
have been altered...but only
slightly. Now there will be
group counseling and a delay-
ed fee-payment program.
SUnder the new group coun-
seling procedure all students
are encouraged to meet Wed-
nesday, August 17 with a
college staff or faculty mem-
ber within his or her field of
study and participate in a
collective counseling session.
New students should be on
campus by 8 am and returning
students should report by 1
pm..
Evening students will re-
ceive group counseling August
18 from 6-6:30.pm.
Any student uncertain as to
wiwbere their group meets
should contact the Office of
Student Services. No appoint-
meants will be necessary for
group advising.
/' 3roup advising will not
replace or substitute for the
individual counseling that all
students must receive before
registration. "We are offering
a group :counseling session
because we feel it will help
expiedite the overall counsel-
ing and advising procedure,"
sai~ Frank Eiseman, dean of
student services.
"'By counseling students in

groups according to their de-
clared majors," added Eise-
man, "we will be able to
answer many of the same
questions that will be repeat-
edly asked by the students of
their individual advisors. As a
result, the individual advisor
will have an opportunity to
spend more time with each
student discussing those mat-
ters which most effect that
student's particular course or
career selection."
Individual advising for all
students will begin August 16
and continue through August
22. During this period all day
students must-see an advisor
and have their class schedule
approved before reporting to
the Registrar's Office to re-
ceive a registration appoint-
ment.
Registration for day stu-
dents will be held August 22-23
by appointment only from 8:30,
am to 2 pm in the Fine Arts
Auditorium. There will be no
registration August 24 but
then August 25-26 students
may continue to register or
drop and add classes. The
drop and add period will
continue through September
2nd. Classes begin at Gulf
Coast August 29.
Evening students may re-
gister for classes August 18
from 6-8:00 p.m. in the Fine
Arts Auditorium. No appoint-
ment is necessary for evening
college registration.
The other new registration
procedure effecting both new
and old GCCC students will be
a delayed system for payment
of tuition fees.
According to Harold Con-
rad, college registrar, stu-
dents will not be allowed to
pay fees until after September
