All Happened During Past Week

All H ppe "d During Past Wee


Port St. Joe Police Depart-
ment reported four automo-
-bile accidents in the City
". during thepasr'week.
The first of three minor
accidents occurred last Wed-
nesday afternoon as The Star
was going to press. In the two
car accident, Patrolman How-
ard Rogers reported that a
pick-up driven by Tammy
McMillian struck the rear of a
sedan driven by Mrs. Roy
Conoley at the intersection of
Highway 98 and Third Street.
Patrolman Rogers said the
two cars were headed south on
98 when Mrs. Conoley at-
tempted a left turn into Third
Street. Miss McMillian was
driving a pick-up truck follow-
ing the Conoley vehicle and
struck it in the rear.
Both drivers and two pas-
sengers in the McMillian pick-:
up. Lee and Jean McMillian,'

-ered broken ribs in the most
serious of the four accidents,
-41fi a crash at the intersection
of Second Street and Highway
Hammock was pinned in
-his Datsun pick-up truck for
about 20 minutes following the
crash, and rescue workers
from the Gulf County Ambu-
lance Service worked to free
him from the truck cab.
According to Patolman
Howard Rogers, Hammock
pulled out of Second Street in
the intersection as the light
changed and was struck in the
passenger side by a pick-up
truck, loaded with lumber,


driven by Waller Wagoner of
Apalachicola Rogers said the
pick-up truck was heavily
-loaded and could not stop for
the light in time to avoid
hitting Hammock's vehicle
Hammock was taken to
Municipal Hospital where he
was treated for broken ribs.
Wagoner was charged with
running a stop sign.
Monday afternoon, Miss
Clara D. Allen lost control of


her car at 13th and Palm and

began to skid on'the rain-slick
road. She skidded around the
corner and struck a pine tree
at 1206 Palm Boulevard.
. Approximately $1.000 dam-
ages were inflicted on the car.
Miss Allen was charged with


careless driving.
Tuesday afternoon; Demp-
sey Longmire attempted to,
turn off- Main Street into
Avenue C, and didn'tnmake the
turn quite sharp enough. His
vehicle struck a St. Joe
Natural Gas Company truck
driven by William Etheridge
White in the left front.
Damages to both vehicles
were estimated at about
$400.00 by investigating offi-
cer, Larry O'Shall.

Any new students to Gulf

information. It is recommend-
ed that registration be com-
pleted before August 29.


Kenneth Herring, principal, Port St.
Joe Jr.-Sr. High School announces that the
school has implemented several new
policies for the upcoming year. He urges
all parents to become aware of these
policies, and to help their children comply
with them.
The Gulf County School Board has
recently approved a Student Code of
Conduct that will be observed by all
students during the 1977-78 school year. All
students will receive this code of conduct
which will be found in the Student Hand-
book. Students are expected to make sure
that parents are also aware of this
information.
Parents are also to remind students
that hats are not to be worn at the. high
school under any circumstances. Only
students enrolled in tie NJROTC program
will be allowed to carry hats to classes.
This is a new policy for this year, as hats

day, so drive carefully. The

had become a problem during school last
year.
Parents should also be aware that Gulf
County schools will observe the establish-
ment of statewide minimum student per-
formance standards which will identify the
minimum competencies in reading, writ-
ing and mathematics for grades three,
five, eight and 11. This new criteria is
known as the Pupil Progression Plan.
Students graduating from Gulf County
high schools beginning next year must
show certain minimum competencies
before diplomas-are issued.
Senior students failing to meet certain
basic competencies will receive atten-
dance certificates only, not high school
diplomas.
Principal Ken Herring says more
detailed information concerning the State-
wide Assessment will be disseminated to
students during the school 'year.


Florida Highway Patrol Sgt.
McDaniel and Trooper Miller
spent nearly 30 minutes Tues-
day trying to sell the County
Commission on the idea of
endorsing a resolution asking
that the FHP retain supervi-
sion, of the state's vehicle
inspection program.
The Commission, using the
argument that they wished to
see the inspection program
abolished altogether, refused
to sign the resolution without
taking some time to study it
carefully.
The Troopers assured the
Commission the document
was no endorsement for con-
tinuation of the inspection
program but only called for
the program to be under the
jurisdiction of the Patrol as
long as it exists.
Commissioner Billy Branch
said he was in favor of doing
away with inspection and
asked what alternatives the
Commission had in the mat-
ter.
Sgt.' McDaniel said an at-
tempt is being made to abolish
the program and another to
place it under the control of
civilian operators.


"As the program now
stands", Sgt. McDaniel said,
"we carefully monitor each
station and see that the in-
spections are carried out in
the manner prescribed by the
Patrol. All we're asking with
this resolution, is that as long
as the inspection program
operates that it be under the

Construction Stopped On Oak GroveWater and Sewer


After eight years of starts
and stops in construction of a
water and sewer system for
Oak Grove, the system's con-
struction has had another
set-back; .this time by the
contractor, who stopped work
on the utility this week.
Newkirk Construction Com-
pany of Decatur, Georgia, has
been having difficulties with
its bonding company since the
A job was started. This week the
problems evolved into a work
stoppage by the firm until the
differences could be resolved.
The County Commission is
caught in the middle of the
squabble and decided at their
regular meeting Tuesday
night, on the advice of their


attorney, William J. Rish, to
stay completely neutral in the
affair. Rish advised the
Board, "If Newkirk pulls out
of the job because of the
problems with the bonding
company,, they (the bonding
firm) will have to complete
the job at the bid .price. Oak
Grove will get its system at
the bid price; there's no need
to worry about that".
Rish told the Board that
Newkirk had problems with a
job in Biloxi, Mississippi and
the bonding company was out
some expense to bail him out
of an incident. Rish said, "He
seems to be a good man with a
good reputation or the bonding
company wouldn't have bond-


ed him for this job after
difficulties with another",
Rish told the Board.
The attorney went on to tell
the Board that Newkirk's,
problems stemmed from an
agreement he signed prior to
beginning the local job, that
periodical payments made by
the county would be made out
jointly to Newkirk and the
bonding company. Now New-
kirk and the bonding company
are at odds as to which*bills
should be paid first. As a
result, no checks have been
deposited from the county or
written by Newkirk, primarily
to his work force on the job.
The workmen have laid down
their tools until they are paid.


The County Commission's
representatives on the job, E.
F. Gunn, Steve Nations and
attorney Rish were to meet
with Newkirk and a bonding
company representative yes-
terday (Wednesday) and try'
to help come to an agreement
which would allow work to
continue at once.
If an agreement cannot be
reached and Newkirk pulls
out, there is likely to be
considerable delay until a new
firm can be brought in by the
bonding company to complete
the job.
METER MATTER
In other matters concerning
the Oak' Grove water and


sewer project, the City of Port
St. Joe had written the County
Commission to advise the
Board that the City wished to
purchase, own and maintain
the master meter going into
the system, therefore the City
wished to purchase and install
the meter.

The City's thinking on the
matter is that with the City
owning the meter and it
installed as the City wishes, a
closer check can be kept on
the volume of water which is
going into the system and an
adequate charge made. With
the City ownership of the
meter, it can be checked for
accuracy at will by City water


people, and kept in proper
repair.
The letter sent to the County
by the City of Port St. Joe
asked that the County reim-
burse the City with the $4,500
item in the contract for pur-
chase of a master meter. The
City would then purchase and
install the device, saving the
County the installation costs.
Commissioner Billy Branch
made a motion that the Com-
mission write the City of Port
St. Joe saying that if the City
wished to own and control the
master meter, they should
also purchase it at their
expense. Branch's motion
passed unanimously.


ROCHE EXTENSION
David and Michael Roche
were present at the meeting
and asked what the recent
maneuvers on the job affected
their request that water and
sewer be extended into a tract
of 16 lots owned by them. the
Roches had agreed to pay the
minimum bill on each hook-up
until their lots were sold in
order to get the system instal-
led.
Engineer Steve Nations re-
ported that there was not
enough natural "fall" from
the end of the Roche property,
to put in a gravity system.
"You will probably need a lift
,station", Nations said, "at a
minimum cost of around


$7,000"
Chairman Owens then asked
Clerk George Y. Core if
enough money would be left in
the construction fund to do this
work. Core said as best he
could figure with several un-
knowns to be considered, the
system would have approxi-
mately $50,000 left with the
City putting in the main
meter. "There are still sever-
al charges left to come in and I
have no idea how much they
will be", Core said.
Chairman Owens then in-
structed Nations to explore
other possible avenues of put-
ting the lines into the Roche
property.

Hires New Director

Municipal Hospital Board of Directors made an offer
to Ms. Pat Cowart of Perry to fill the position of Director
of Nurses at the local hospital last week. Ms. Cowart said
she would consider the offer over the week end and
notified the Board Monday that she would take the offer.
Ms. Cowart has been Director of Nurses at Taylor
County's Doctor's Hospital for several years before
coming to Port St. Joe. She has had previous experience at
Macon Hospital in Macon, Georgia and in Valdosta,
Georgia.
The new Director of Nurses will fill the vacancy left
by the resignation of Mrs. Betty Sue Wright recently.
The Directorship has been filled by Mrs. Sue Emmons
for the past few weeks, but Mrs. Emmons stepped down
from the position last week.
I When Mrs. Wright resigned her position, Dr. Shirley
Simpson withdrew her privileges to practice in the
hospital. With the decision by Ms. Cowart to come to Port
St. Joe, Dr. Simpson asked that she again have her
privileges restored and re-admitted to the Hospital staff of
physicians.
Ms. Cowart is to report for duty at the Hospital on
September 19.

' EDITORIALS:




Civilized People Should



Know Better


After last week's paper came
out with the pictures of the broken
Highland View Elementary School
windows, we received at least two
area newspapers in the mail with
similar pictures printed about sim-
ilar incidents.
What causes this unconcern for
public buildings among kids?
Looking back through the files of
last year, searching for information
about last year's school board.
budget to compare with the current
year's financial plan, we ran across
another picture of broken windows
at Port St. Joe Elementary School,
which occurred almost to the day, a
year ago.
The kids know it is nearly time
to get back to school, and we suppose
they think they will delay the
process a little bit, if they break out
all the windows: or maybe they are
just venting their displeasure at
having to resume their classroom
studies in the very near future.
Whatever the reason for break-
ing out the windows, the reason


doesn't justify the actions. Destruc-
tion of public property costs every-
one, even the parents of the one
doing the breaking. If the culprit
works at odd jobs to earn money to
make a small purchase or two, he is
paying for the windows out of his
own pocket with the sales tax he
pays.
The Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka schools are isolated to a
certain extent, but the Highland
View School is right in the middle of
a residential area. We think it would
do the kids good and save the School
Board considerable money if the
people who lived in the school area
would sort of serve as a watchman
for the building and grounds and
blow the whistle on those who would
wantonly destroy public property.
I It's hard for us to decide, which
is worse: one who .will dump his
garbage on someone else's property,
or someone who will destroy the
property of others. Both acts are
destructive and civilized people -
and their children should know
better.


School starts here in Gulf Coun-
ty next Monday and with the starting
of school, nearly every law en-
forcement agency in the nation
begins harping on the theme of
driving safely because of the num-
ber of school children on the streets
going to and from classes. As a
matter of fact, we may have heard
this theme so often and so regularly
that we have become jaded to the
message they are trying to tell us.
Consider, if you will, that there
are approximately 2,800 children
who attend Gulf Countv's schools.

' Enough Sugar


Daddy for


Everyone

Did you ever wish a Sugar Daddy was just a
little bit bigger when you were a kid? The chewy
caramel candy has long been a favorite with kids,
but they always seemed to be just a bite or two too
small.
These kids are of the lucky generation. They
have a Sugar Daddy which is big enough for all four
of them, with a little bit to spare. The kids had the
giant size Sugar Daddy at the church softball games
Monday evening and worked on the sucker for most
of a double header. Not only these four kids worked
on the sucker; there were three more kids involved
in testing their teeth throughout the evening.
There was enough Sugar Daddy for everyone
who wanted some.
Shown in the picture at left, taking the first bites
out of the giant sucker are Lisa Fernandez, Tim
Ard, Luana Fernandez and Kevin Weech. The kids
were aided in devouring the sucker by Christa
Weech, Amanda Fernandez, Jay Rish and a host of 0
others. -Star photo,'

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


We now have another Cabinet member in our
federal government. James Schlesinger has
been appointed as the head of the new Energy
Department with a budget said to be around $10
billion per year. With a budget like that, one
could generate all kinds of energy.
$10 billion . If what I read recently is
correct, that is more money than the five leading
oil firms earned as profits during the year of 1976
collectively. According to the report I read,
which wasn't put out by the oil companies,
the top five companies earned a combined profit
of $6.15 billion.
And we as a United States government, are
going to spend $10 billion a year over-seeing their
operations.

I know all of you at one time or another has
been bugged by a computer. I think that at times
we are putting too much reliance on these
sophisticated machines and take what they tell
us as the gospel truth in too many instances. I
had one the other day send me a bill for several
hundred dollars from a firm which I don't even
buy from on credit. If the operator fails to punch
the right button, the computer has it in its
innards that something is so which definitely
isn't. It then takes all but an act of Congress to
correct the mistake wound around in the
computer wires and diodes.
A fellow out in Texas probably had the
ultimate joust with a computer. He had applied
for a job with a construction firm. It was
necessary that he take a physical exam to get the
job. The results of his physical were fed into a
computer and the machine chewed on this
information for a while then spit out the

Demos Meeting to Thanks for Sending 'Star'

Ib -"It4 .-u


Dear Mr. Ramsey,
I just want to thank you so
much for sending The Star to
me while I have been station-
ed over here in Germany for
the last three years. The Star
was a big help to Charmaine
and I during the past elections
when we prepared our Absen-
tee ballots.
The paper was read by
nearly all the guys in my
office. The main part they
liked to read was your editor-
ial. plus the low prices on food
from the different grocery
stores. We have to pay some
pretty steep prices over here
and that includes the commis-
sary that everyone has to shop
in.
The economy here is very
high, for example regular gas
is $1.65 and that is almost four
Deutch Mark. You know, with
all the problems that I read
about in the newspapers that


are going on in the United
States, it is still the most
beautiful country in the world.
I didn't rally realize how
great America was until I got
here in Germany and saw the
things that I have seen, and I
have yet to find any place as
wonderful as Port St. Joe and


its wonderful people. I am
looking forward to returning
home and rubbing elbows with
the wonderful and great peo-
ple of Port St. Joe. I'll see you
all in about three and a half
weeks.
Sincerely,
Jim Lemieux


So Long, Elvis!


When I was thirteen years
old and started growing up, I
grew up listening to a man and
his music. It was a romance
that has lasted for twenty
years.
For all the material things
he had I admired him most for
the way he carried himself. He
didn't smoke, drink, take
drugs, or use foul language, in.
private or public life. Oh, I
imagine he cursed once in
awhile.


Now that he is dead I feel a
deep remorse.
I'm going to miss reading
about his antics, such as
giving a policeman's widow
$5,000, giving an elderly wo-
man a new cadillac because
she couldn't afford one.
Elvis, we're going to miss
you, wherever you are may
God bless you!
From all your fans in Port
St. Joe.

The man then faced everyone at the medical
center where the physical was taken and he
could convince nobody that he was not pregnant.,
The employees of the clinic could see he was ar
man, but they believed the edict of the computer
that he was, indeed, pregnant, notwithstanding
the fact that he was a man.

investigate the findings and found that a lady
with the same last name was examined on the
same day and the information was crossed. The
lady was pregnant.
When people let the computer argue with
mother nature, that's carrying the machine age
too far.

Now we have proof that socialism has taken
over the nation.
Last week a news release reported that the
people who lost their homes to the forest fires in
California would not be eligible for disaster relief
funds. The news release said the home owners
made too much money to be eligible for aid. In
essence, they should be able to take care of their
own problems.
This raises an interesting point. These
people are allowed to pay taxes to put up the
money for disaster aid, but they are not eligible
to utilize the low interest aid when an emergenpjl
arises.
Isn't that discrimination?

I see where the Ford Motor Company f
recalling many 1976 and 1977 cars to replace a
fan blade which could come loose while the
engine is running and injure or kill someone
working under the hood at the time.
This makes the fan dangerous, according to
the release, and the owners are urged to get
them changed.
.1 know the fan on my 1976 Ford is dangerous,
It has already chalked up a kill. It put the hurt on
a deer back in the spring, proving that it is
deadly. I guess I had better get it changed out
before it causes any more damage.

A couple of months ago, there was an article
in Readers Digest which tried to figure out why
people sleep in the positions they do. The article
said that people who double up in a ball to sleep
are seeking security; those who spread-eagle on
the bed to get their 40 winks sub-consciously
think of themselves as royalty. -
I thought Frenchie grabbed the covers and
rolled to the opposite side of the bed because she
was cold. I thought I slept on my back because it
felt more comfortable and I slept better that
way. Now, I learn there is a deep dark reason
why we do these things. I thought I slept without.
pajama tops because they were too hot, binding
and uncomfortable. It must be because I am a
secret exhibitionist and want to show off my
manly chest, if the article has any truth to it.
For whatever the reason I sleep as I do, I
enjoy it and always seem to need just 10 minutes
more than I actually was able to get.

Plans for

VRecreation
The Port St. Joe Recreation
Dept. is endeavoring to work
out a program for the teen-
agers of the city, but they
require the help of the com-
munity. There have been num-
erous inquiries concerning a
program of this nature, and
even a letter from a concern-
ed young man in the paper of
late. John Clenney, Recrea-
tion Director says, "We feel
like it is time to put forth a
concerned effort."
The proposed program
would have the Stac House
open on Friday nights from
7:30- 12:00 p.m. when the high"
school ball teams are not play-
ing, or when they are out of
town; and from 9:30 12:00
p.m. when they are playing at
home. On Saturday nights the
Stac House would be open
from 7:00 12:00 while school
is in session.
Due to the present City
budget, this would have to be
implemented by volunteers-
who are concerned for the
I city's teens. If you feel like
this is a worthy cause, and you
are willing to work to bring it
to pass, call the Recreation
Department at 229-6119, Sug-
gestions and inquiries are al-
ways welcome states Mr.

Old St. Joseph's Colorful History Is



Outlined by Dick Boyer, Curator


Each time the story is told,
even those who know of the
history of old St. Joseph learn
a little more about the colorful
and historic past of this area.
Last Thursday, Dick Boyer,
curator at the St. Joseph
Historical Museum on Allen
Memorial Way spoke to the
Rotary Club, giving a thumb-
nail sketch of the history of the
vicinity of old St. Joseph and
present day Port St. Joe.
Exhibits at the museum depict
the history of the vicinity as
presented by Boyer.
The Spanish were the first
white men in the area, accord-
ing to Boyer's narration,., en-
tering St. Joseph Bay in 1513.
They gave the bay its name on
their first visit.
The French were the first to
settle in the area, when they
built a small fort at what is
now St. Joe Beach and named
it Fort Crevcourx. They stay-
ed at the fort and left at the
first opportunity when 'a sup-
ply ship came two years later.
England then owned Florida
Sand this area, after trading


the Spanish Cuba for Florida.
The English kept the state for.
30 years, then traded it back to
Spain for the islands off the
east coast of Florida, several
of which they still own.
The treaty of 1819 gave the
United States title to Florida.
The U.S. didn't take posses-
sion of the state until 1821.
In the meantime, John
Forbes, who operated a trad-
ing operation in the Apalachi-
cola area, secured ownership
of what is known as the Forbes
Purchase from Spain before
they pulled out. The deed was
given in payment for debts
owed Forbes by Spain which
the country couldn't pay. The
"Purchase" consisted of 2,000
square miles east of the
Apalachicola River.
People started settling in
Northwest Florida on Forbes'
land. Forbes tried to make the
settlers pay for the land and
they claimed squatters'
rights and refused to pay.
Forbes took the matter to
court, and the United States
upheld Forbes' ownership.
This caused the settling of


Gardeners--You


Can't Rest Yet


By this time of year, the
planting is done, and there
may be a tendency to wait for
the "harvest." Of course,
gardeners know that weeds
will grow, insects will feed,
diseases may infect plants,
fertilizer may be utilized or
leached away, water may be
lacking, which all adds up to
plenty of work in order to have
the desired results in your
garden. This is no time to
neglect gardening chores,
even though it is hot.
Roses grow quite large in
South Florida and a late
August pruning is recommen-
ded. Remove healthy top
growth as well as twigs and
branches that are dead, dis-
Seased, injured, unsightly ,or"
CARD OF THANKS
The parents and boys of the
Port St. Joe Dixie Youth base-
ball team would like to ex-
press their appreciation to
Billy Joe Rish and the Cal-
vin Heavy Equipment Co. of
Panama City for the trophies
which they donated to the
team. The Dixie Youth club
received trophies for their
winning efforts in capturing
the sub-district champion-
ship and the runner-up spot in
district play.
CARD OF THANKS
The family of Howard Ep-
person wishes to take this
opportunity to express their
deepest gratitude to the people
of Port St. Joe and the
Beaches for the loving kind-
ness they showed during their
recent grief.
Your prayers and expres-
sions of support helped us to
get through this time. We
thank each and every one of
you.

thin and spindly. Shorten main
canes and lateral branches
removing small twigs and
some of the oldest canes.
Leave at least half the length
of each main cane that is one
to three years old. The first
flowers can be expected eight
to nine weeks after pruning.
If you have not yet disbud-
ded your camellia plants, by
all means begin now. A bush
with too many buds produces
smaller blooms than bushes
which have been disbudded
leaving one flower bud per
shoot.
Each Camellia shoot should,
at this time of year, have two
or more buds. One of these
buds is small and slender. It is
\ the vegetative bud from which
next year's shoots will be.
produced and should not be
removed. The other bud or
buds are flower buds. They
are generally much larger
than the vegetative buds. In
shape, they are rounded and
often not pointed at the tips.
When two or more flower buds
are present on a shoot, all but
one of these should be re-
moved. Be careful to distin-
guish between the vegetative
or growth bud and the flower
buds. Then, gently remove
excessive flower buds from
the plant.
Common ornamentals like
oleander, hydrangeas and
azaleas can be propagated by
cuttings this time of year. For
azaleas, take tip cuttings 3 to 5
inches long with several
leaves left attached. Many
rooting mediums can be used
such as sand or a mixture of
peat and perlite. Place the
cuttings in the media and keep
moist by covering with a
plastic bag or use a mist
system. A rooting hormone
may hasten root growth. If
you have any cold sensitive
ornamentals try rooting cut-
tings before winter and keep
the young plants in a protected
spot this winter. Then, if the
ornamental freezes, you'll
have replacements for the
spring.
If you're growing mums or
poinsettias for winter color.
this is the last month you
should pinch these plants to
increase blooms. Pinching
. back the bud tips will promote
heavier flowering because of
increased branching. But, if
you wait too late. pinching will
remove flower buds and thus
reduce flowers this fall.
If you want to plant things
this time of year. try bulbs of
Louisiana iris. gingers, cri-
nums. daylilies, amaryllis.
and zaphyr lilies.
If you intend to plant winter
annuals like baby's breath,
calendulas or pansies, start
ordering your seed and pre-
paring the flower beds.
Keep watching for insects of
lawns and ornamentals.
Chinch bugs and mole crickets
are very active on lawns and
white flies, scales, aphids and
caterpillars are damaging or-
namentals.
There are many other acti-
vities you can think of, but
these will keep you busy for a
while.


St. Joseph. Those disposed by
Forbes moved across the river
to St. Joseph's Bay and start-
ed the new town. They also
attempted to ruin Forbes'
trade by attracting river ship-
ping activities to the new
town. The river boats were
diverted down the Jackson
River, to Lake Wimico, up
Depot Creek to a spot near the
present Odena Landing. There
the cargoes were off-loaded on
a railroad which had been
built to the docks at St. Joseph
for ocean shipment.
Old St. Joseph boasted the
first steam railroad in Flor-
ida, which was also the fourth
in the nation and the 12th in
the world. The railroad caused
the city to grow to be the
largest in Florida.
In 1840 the scooner Herald
came into port from Cuba and
stayed five days. Everyone on
board was sick and the Cap-
tain was dead. He was buried
here in old St. Joseph. Next
spring the yellow fever hit the
entire Gulf coast, wiping out
old St. Joseph. In a matter of
60 days, a city of 5,000 had
dwindled to a population of
only 500.
During its heydey, old St.
Joseph operated 22 hotels and
rooming houses where im-
ported champagne and caviar
was served along with the
other delicacies of the day.
The City was a boom town and
missed being the capital of the
new state by only one vote at
the Constitution Convention
held here near the site of the
present day museum.
In 1844 a hurricane hit the
dead city and completed the
destruction of what buildings
were left. Exactly 60 years
later, T. H. Stone came back
to the old city and revived it
again.
Guests of the club were Tom
Worley of Shelbyville, Tenn.,
and Dr. Rich Morley of Bea-
con Hill.

He Broke the Pole!

Herman Stripling shows off a 161/4 pound carp he caught
recently while fishing in the Chipola River. Herman said he
caught the large fish on a rainy day (as you can see from the
flat appearance of the picture) on a bream pole with a
number eight hook. The pole broke in two places while
horsing the big fish in but Herman said he was determined to
hang on. --Star photo


Mrs. Groos Named


As C-F Chairman


Mary Whiss, President of
the Cystic Fibrosis Founda-
tion, has announced that Mrs.
Patti Groos, will lead local
volunteers in Port St. Joe in
organizing a Door-to-Door
Campaign in September.
The funds raised during the
campaign will go to support
research and care programs
for children affected by lung-
damaging diseases like Cystic
Fibrosis, severe asthma,
chronic bronchitis, and bron-
chiectasis.
Approximately one of every
1,500 babies is born with
Cystic Fibrosis, which is still
incurable. C-F is inherited
when both parents carry the
recessive gene for C-F. It is
believedd that one in twenty
persons, or a total of ten
million Americans, are symp-
tomless carriers of this gene.
Current research funded by
the Cystic Fibrosis Founda-
tion is seeking a practical test
to identify these carriers, as
well as a cure for C-F and
better methods of treatment
for all lung-damaging disea-


ses.
Because of improved treat-
ment developed through re-
search, many C-F patients are
now living into their teens and
young adulthood. This same
treatment is also benefiting
and often curing children suf-
fering from other lung-damag-
ing diseases.

ment developed through re-

treatment is also benefiting
and often curing children suf-
fering from other lung-damag-

progress, the need of millions
of children who struggle to
breathe grows larger, and
with it the need for more
volunteers and more funds.

Mrs. Nadine Aplin


Named Chairperson


In M.H. C

Mrs. Nadine Aplin of Port
St. Joe was named Mental
Health Bellringer chairperson
for the October '77 campaign,
announced Jim Sprigg, Presi-
dent of the Mental Health
Association in Florida.
"The Mental Health Asso-
ciation is the largest citizens'
voluntary advocacy organi-
zation in the United States
fighting mental illness and
promoting mental health,"
said Sprigg.
Since the organization is
non-governmental, its entire
support must come from con-
tributions, such as those col-
Ldected in October.


campaignn

The original and continuing
purposes of the association
are to: improve attitudes to-
ward mental illness and the
mentally ill; improve services
for the mentally ill; and work
for the prevention of mental
and emotional illness and
promotion of mental health.
Through social action the
association sees that govern-
mental agencies are account-
able, One example is seen in
the results of an impoundment
suit brought by the Mental
Health Association which
forced the release of over $2
million in" federal funds -in
Florida for research, alcoho-
lism and manpower.

stop while the children load or
unload.
When a school bus displays
a stop signal loading or un-


loading, Florida law requires
all drivers going in the same
direction to stop. Traffic mov-
ing in the opposite direction
must stop also unless the
highway is divided with an
unpaved space at least five
feet wide or a physical bar-
rier. School buses are required
to stop at railroad crossings
and motorists should use cau-
tion while following a bus
approaching crossings.
"Drivers should reduce
speed when meeting or over-
taking a school bus and be
prepared to stop at any time,"
concluded Beach.

ACT Test Scheduled for Oct. 8


Making decisions, the big
ones and the little day-to-day
ones is not always easy. One of
the best ways to make good
decisions is to gather as much
relevant information as possi-
ble before you decide any-
thing. That's where the Amer-
ican College Testing Program
can help.
About one million college-
bound- high school students
take the ACT Assessment
each year. These results are


Seasonal vegetables -
whether home grown or "store
bought"-make delicious main
dishes, especially when a mi-
crowave oven is doing the
cooking. You can make the
most of your home harvest or
save at the grocers when sea-
sonal vegetables are in abun-
dance. Green peppers star in
this easy recipe, from the
Whirlpool microwave
cookbook.

used by more than 2500 col-
leges and universities. Whe-
ther students are almost sure
about a specific college or are
still looking over the whole
range of post-high school al-
ternatives, the ACT Assess-
ment can give much of the
information needed to make
better decisions.'
The ACT report sent to the
student contains organized in-
formation about educational
planning and a description of


the colleges of his-her choice.
It also includes information
about the student's special
educational interests and the
ways these interests relate to
career planning.
The ACT Assessment will be
offered on October 8, 1977
(first test date for the 1977-78
academic year). The registra-
tion deadline for this test date
is September 12. Registration
forms can be obtained from
