Cotton Pickers Reminded of Past
.-' .' A C -'. *P'


A good many of our people here in Port St. Joe came
frommsouth Alabama and south Georgia. You can get up a
conversation most any time about how much cotton these
transplants have picked in their younger days. Almost to a
man, they vow never to pick another boll again. Still, they
talk with nostalgia about their farming and cotton-picking
days.'
City Clerk Mike Wright, himself an Alabama
transplant by an extremely circuitous route, obtained
some cotton seed from an aunt this spring and planted the
cotton on both sides of the sidewalk leading into City Hall.
Wright knew nothing about growing cotton, so he


called on the City's veteran horticulturist, Joe Badger.
who can make a lead pencil grow, to nurture and tend the
cotton patch. Joe did his job well, since the cotton plants
are now about five feet high and bursting forth with snowy
white bolls.

What's the purpose of this article? The purpose is to
let all you Alabama and Georgia transplants know about
the cotton crop and its ripening bolls so you may go by
City Hall and spend a minute or two remembering your
childhood. Just remember, don't pick the cotton!

Another V ot ing Precnct Studied


There is a possibility that
Gulf County will add another.:
voting precinct to the 11 it now
has.
:, Mrs. Dessie Lee Parker,
Supervisor of Elections, asked
the Gulf County Commission
Tuesday night to consider
creating a new precinct at
Howard Creek before the next
election takes place. Mrs.
Parker said there are now
approximately 200 potential
voters in this'vicinity who now
have to travel all the way to
Honeyville to cast their ballot.
"Many of'these people just do.
not go and vote because they
have to travel so far", Mrs.
Parker said.
Mrs. Parker's request posed
several problems for the
County Commission which.
they will consider before mak-
ing their final decision. Chair-
man Everett Owens advised
Mrs. Parker that there will be
an election in the current
budget year just recently ap-
proved and the County ap-
proved money to operate only
11 precincts in the election.
"Another precinct will entail
some more election expense",
Owens told Mrs. Parker.
A second problem is that the
area would have to use paper
ballots since the county-does
not have voting machines to
put at Howard Creek.
Mrs. Mildred Marbury of
Howard Creek spoke in favor
of the new precinct saying,.
"We'll count ballots if we have
to. There are many people in
our area who would vote if it
was more convenient". Mrs.
Marbury further stated, "I
like to cast my vote and I will
go wherever I have to vote but
many people won't."
Tom Mangum, also a resi-
dent of Howard Creek'said
there was a church in the
community which could be
used for a polling place.


Chairman Owens instructed :Creek area from the Honey-
Mrs Parker to work up some ville precinct and present it to
maps, removing the Howard the Commission, along with a

SResidents of Overstreet
were out in number at the
County Commission meeting
Tuesday night, requesting
that something be done about
their roads and that tug boat
traffic be slowed down on the
Intracoastal Canal.
Clayton Suber said the tugs
come by so fast that their
wakes damage severalshrimp
boats tied up in the area.
The Commission decided to
attempt to get a "no wake"
designation approved for the
quarter mile east of the Over-
street bridge.
The big complaint, however,
was about the condition of the
Three roads at Overstreet.,
Mrs. Richard Carr said
they were in terrible condition
! and that the people wanted
something done about them,
"not next year, or not rext.
month, but NOW!"
Mrs. Parion Mims, a bus
driver in the area, said there
were several culverts at inter-
sections which were danger-
ous for the bus to travel over.
Richard Herring said, "I
have lived 'there for four
years, and the ditches have
been cleaned two times".
County Road Superintendent ,
Lloyd Whitfield said,
' ye'llbe there, tomorrow,
rWednesday). Whitfield said
his crews had been slowed
down in their regular rotation
grading by rains but then
intimated that Overstreet's
work had been further slowed
by his immediate supervisor,
Commissioner Otis Davis, Jr.,
taking him off his regular
grading rotation to do some
special work. Whitfield said,
"If we hadn't beer called off
rotation we would have al-
ready been to Overstreet".
Davis was not present at the
meeting-to, defend himself.
Further road, requests from
the Overstreet group was
heard from Mrs. Nelson Bou-
cher, who asked that the three
streets be named and signs
put up..
Chairman Everett Owens
said thecounty is now in a
program of putting up street
signs all over the county..'
ASK FOR RELIEF
George G. Tapper and E. F.
Gunn asked the Commission
to include the stretch of beach
from the Sunland Recreation
Center to the State Park on St.
Joseph Peninsula in their ban
against driving on the beach-
es' Tapper said someone was
going to be" killed by a motor
vehicle in this area if the'
vechiles aren't kept off the
beach.
Gunn said, "These people
come to the State Park with
their beach buggies and since
they can't, use them in'the
Park, they come to this area
just outside the park and
make a regular race track out
of the beach". Gunn- also
testified to the fact that
"somebody is going to be
killed" by one of the speeding
dune buggies.
Gunn said, "It's too bad
that such a ban will also keep
the fisherman off the beach
with his auto. He does no
harm,.but the beach buggies
are a definite danger".
The Board agreed to pass
another Ordinance prohibiting
motor vehicles from the bea-


Reason Given for Insurance Rate


Two weeks ago, the County
Commission was presented
with a workman's compensa-
tion insurance bill of nearly
$100,000. Since neither the
county finance officer, Jerry
Gates, nor the insurance


agent, Frank Hannon, were
present at the .meeting, the
Board was shocked by the bill
and 'wondered who could do
this to them.
Tuesday night, both Gates
and Hannon were present at


the meeting, along with Roy
Smith, who takes care of this
business for Hannon, who
answered questions as to why
the bill was so high, but could
not reduce the premium.
Hannon explained that the


premium went up to the
present rate for several rea-
sons. "Primarily the rate
increased because of increas-
ed expenses such as medical
care and because of the high

ches in this area.
FORESTERS REPORT
'District Foresters Jerry
Brooks and Ralph Edenfield
brought their annual report to
the ICommission Tuesday
night and ran smack into a
controversy. '
Commissioner Billy Branch
asked if the Forestry Service
was still doing some free fire
line plowing for small land
owners. Brooks replied that

they were not. "We charge a
small fee for transporting the
machines and for fuel", he
said.
Attorney William J. Rish
then advisedBrooks that last
year they had the same an-
swer to the same question but
that a conference with the
state forester initiated 15 min-
utes of free fire lane plowing
for small land owners, with
any additional plowing being
charged for. "We pay for this
service in our taxes",' Rish
said, "and the policy hasn't
been changed that I know of'"
Rish said he would be in

Suspected Dog
S* *


Poisoner Strikes

A case of suspected dog poisoning was reported in Port.
St. Joe this past week end according to Police Chief H. W..
"Buck" Griffin.
S Griffin said his office received a report early in the week
that dogs belonging-to three families in the 1100 and 130 .
block of Monument Avenue,had died mysteriously. "The"
dogs appeared to have been poisoned", Griffin said, "But we
won't know for sure or what poison was used until we get a
report back on the autopsies performed on some of the dead
dogs", the Chief said. Griffin said they could do no serious
investigations until it was verified the dogs were poisoned
and if so, what poison was used.
Griffin said, "I hope nobody would put out poison to kill .'
dog. There is too great a risk that a child will pick it up. If this
case is poison, we won't even know what to look for until this
autopsy comes back, leaving any unused poison lying about
for kids to pick up".
Animals which died over the weekend belonged to Mr.
and Mrs. Bill Mosely, Mr. and Mrs. Gene Abrams and Mr.
and Mrs. Gerald K. King. Mrs. King told The Star that after
their dog had died, an obviously disguised voice called on
their telephone, speaking to their young son, asking, "Is your
dog dead?" "That call shook us all up after losing our lovely
dog", Mrs. King said.
ChipefGriffin said an intensive investigation would begin
as soon as the autopsy report is returned if it is found that
poison was used.



Attic Fire Does


Damage to Home


Fire of undetermined origin
seriously damaged 'the home
of Mr. and Mrs. James Pate at
1303 McClellan Avenue early
Friday morning of last week.
According ,to Fire Chief
Bascom Hamm, the fire start-
ed in the attic of the home and
offered stubborn resistance to.
the efforts of the fire depart-
ment to put it out. Hamm said
the attic was full of stored
objects, which made the fire
fighting difficult. Firemen fi-
nally had to remove the

objects from the attic in order
to put out the smouldering
blaze.
Most of the blaze was con-
fined to the attic of the home,
but difficulty in putting out the
smouldering combustibles
created considerable water
damage in the living area of
the home below.
The fire alarm was sounded
at 1:35 a.m., Friday, and
firemen were on the job until'
nearly 6:00 a.m.


Cox takes over the presidential duties
from Bob Simon, who retires from his official
duties with the club at the first of the month.
Attending the installation with Lt. Gov.
Davis were Bob Shay and Dave Swedburg,
both of Panama City.

Abandoned Dogs



Bother Beachers

The dog problem seems to be spilling over from the city
of Port St. Joe to the Beaches, according to residents of the
St. Joe Beach area.
Last Thursday, Donald Schott, of St. Joe Beach called
The Star office to ask if something could be done to
encourage dog owners not to put their unwanted pets off at
the Beach. Schott said his neighborhood, in particular, is
continually bothered by strays being let off by those who
don't want them.
"I can't stand to let them die or kill them," Schott said,
"But I can't afford to keep feeding them either.
On Thursday, Schott had a grown hound which was
starved to the point of death, with sores and mange let off at
his home and recently a small hound puppy was let off which
was covered with the mange.
In the photo at left, Schott is shown with the small
puppy, which was in pitiful condition.
Schott and his neighbor, Fred Kleeb, have both checked
with the Gulf,County Sheriff's Department to take the dogs
off their hands but were told the Sheriff has no facilities for
this type thing and no ordinance to allow them to prosecute or
destroy the dogs. Schott said, and Sheriff Ken Murphy later
verified that the Sheriff has legal powers to destroy only
those dogs which are declared vicious.
When asked why he didn't just destroy the strays, Schott
replied, "The only way I could destroy one is to shoot it and
it's illegal to discharge a firearm in this area."
Sheriff Murphy said his department could give special
permission to those who called his office, to discharge a
firearm to shoot the unwanted dogs. "The only catch is that
the one doing the killing would have to take the responsibility
for killing someone's dog", Sheriff Murphy said.
The point is that the people at St. Joe Beach don't want
the strays others do not want. They have their own pets and
wish to keep it that way.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


We may not be winning regularly in football
this year; but we win every week in band.
Before we go any farther, let it be
understood that I am not knocking the football
i team.1I uryderstand'andyou shouldftoo, Lat we P
s- implycannot win everygame or have wifthing
team every season. We just don't have the
number of warm bodies here in Port St. Joe to
choose from in order to accomplish a winning
season every year. Some will be sparse in the
win column. However, as long as the team tries
to win, every game, no matter what the odds, I'll
continue to go to the games, win, lose or draw.
Too, when our coaches pull a trick like the
Walton coaches pulled in the last 34 seconds of
Friday night's game, I'll quit going to the games.
The Walton coach had the game won, 26-7, with
the ball on the Shark two yard line and fourth
down, with six seconds left in the game. He
called a time out in order to cook up strategy to
put another score across in an attempt to
humiliate the Sharks. I think the Walton coach
should look at the won-loss record with the
Sharks and the Braves and remember that there
will be another day and that the record shows
that the odds are in favor of the Sharks winning.

"Silence makes no mistakes."
French proverb


, to the Editor


But, back to the band.
Every outing this year has shown the fans a
superb half-time performance and some fine
music performed in a professional manner.
Friday eight the Waltonband Jiy, have been
nearly te ge a the Pgi'ift"fJoe bant,
but there was no- dobt'Who put on the best
performance. The Walton band wasn't all that
bad either. Make no mistake about it, they were
good. The Port St. Joe band was just better.
While the Sharks are having their difficulties
putting scores on the board this year, I feel it is
the band which is still holding the attendance up
at the football stadium. Being up in the stands, I
hear more and more people say, "It was worth
the price of admission just to come and see and
hear our band perform". I agree.
I think it will be unanimous among all who
have kept up with the band that young Ray Smith
has worked a minor miracle almost overnight.
The band, too, was in the doldrums for several
years with ineffective leadership, inadequate
equipment and a lacadasical attitude among its
members. But, no more.
I trust that the parents will encourage the
school board members to do what they can to
keep Smith here in Port St. Joe. As things
progress, I'm sure there will be ample tempta-
tions thrown his way to go to greener pastures.
We need for him to stay here.

From time to time, I have plugged the value
of the retired men who live in our city. They play
an active part in our community life, for the
most part. Most of our retired men are still very
active, energetic and eager to do something for
their town.
One of the things the retired men do is
gather, faithfully, every Tuesday morning at 10
a.m., in the Fire Station for a short devotional
and prayer meeting. They come by the dozens
and they come every, week. I have attended
several of their meetings, though not enough.
Each time I attend, the number has grown.
When they gather each and every week, the
men have on their prayer list, the concern for
their town. They hold it and its leaders up in
prayer, which is very much appreciated,
especially by the leaders, who are, at times,
faced by very vexing problems which seem to
defy solution.
It could be that if those who are not retired,
and still active in the work world, would follow
the example of the retired and pray for their
community, even more of our problems might
vanish.

I don't rightly know what effect this move by

economy or the Carter administration. I would
be safe in guessing that the decision will have a
profound improvement in the future of Bert

Meets In

Home of

Mrs. Suber
Mrs. George Suber was
hostess for the September
meeting of Mission Group II of
the First United Methodist
Church, with fifteen members
present.
One of the most interesting
programs of the year was
given by Mrs. Stella Farris
who gave a review of two
books written by Millar.
Burrow on the "The Dead Sea
Scrolls."
Mrs. Farris had done consi-
derable research from other
sources, one of which pointed
out "that the Dead Sea Scrolls,
of course, are not mentioned
in the Bible. They are partly
copies of books of the Old
Testament and partly Jewish
writings composed after the
last Book of the Old Testament
had been written." Also that
"The Scrolls helping the study
of post-biblical developments
in the Hebrew aiid Aramaic
languages, filling in to some
degree the considerable gap
between the latest books of the
Old Testament and the rabbin-
ic literature."
Mrs. Chauncey Costin pre-
sided over the business
meeting. It was decided by the
Group to have a picnic at the
State Park "Eden" at Point
Washington the next meeting
day in October.
The meeting was dismissed
with the UMW benediction.

Program Would Find, Help, the


Handicapped Children of Vicinity


SThe Find the Children Pro-
gram, now in its third year, is.
one of eighteen in a statewide
campaign to identify, screen,
and maintain information
*about handicapped children,
0-21 years of age, who are not
being served by the public
school system.
This district's project
serves the exceptional child-
ren of Bay, Calhoun, Franklin,


Gulf, Holmes, Jackson,
Liberty and Washington
Counties.
As developed by the Florida
Regional Diagnostic and Re-
source System for Exception-
al Students, Find the Children
wants to know about children
who are physically handi-
capped, mentally retarded,
deaf or hard of hearing, blind
or visually impaired, emo-


tionally disturbed, speech
'impaired, learning disabled,
and who are not currently
being served by the public
schools.
Funded by a grant through
the Federal Assistance for the
Education of the Handicapped
Act, Find the Children hopes
to reach these unserved ex-
ceptional children through use
of news media, cooperation
with school personnel, physi-
cians, state and private
agency personnel and others
in the district who are in a
position to know about a
handicapped child in need of
school services.
When a child is identified,
indepth diagnostic evaluation,
including medical and psycho-
logical will be completed.
Attempts will be made to
place the child in an educa-
tional program appropriateto
his special needs.
If you have a handicapped
ciild or know of such a child,
who is not in school, please

heartfelt thanks to all the

erot'to ever add up. They
shall never be forgotten.

Sharks

SThe Port St. Joe Sharks
played head to head with the
,.:'Walton Braves here last Fri-
; .day night for the first period,
but faded in the last three
periods, losing 26-7 in a defen-
sive battle for both teams.
SBoth teams posted good
defenses, but Walton defi-
::,nitely had the edge on offense.
'The Braves had four opportun-
ities to score and made good
on all four attempts. The
.. Sharks got close enough only
twice and converted once,
., having the second threat cal-
,,'led back from the nine yard
,:line on a holding penalty.
:.'Penalties wiped out Shark
Drives time after time Friday
S-night.
S The Braves scored twice in
'. the second period, before the
,M. Sharks could get near the goal
..line. The Braves took the ball
S-r,:-'with 3:41 left in the first period
and began .to inch down the
Field for 66 yards, scoring as
"'Johnny Stuckey, the Braves
; : 'running halfback, leaped over
S.the line into the end zone from
: one yard out. The Sharks had
i ..-held on four downs inside the
yard line, but the Braves

Put Up Stiff Defense but Lose to Walton High Braves, 26-7


yard between the chain mark-
er and the goal line, which
gave them four shots from a
yard out. Stuckey put it over
on the first down. Charles
Anderson's kick was good for
the extra point.
On the next series of downs,
the Sharks were marching on
Keith Neel's short running
gains and Rick Taylor's short
passes until Taylor missed
Duane McFarland and Je-
rome Tellis intercepted the
ball and got all the way back
to the Shark's 40 yard line
before Tim Beard stopped
him. Two plays later, follow-
ing an Anderson pass to Tellis
for 29 yards and an 11 yard end
sweep by Stuckey, the Braves
were on the scoreboard again
for the last time in the first
half.
Then came the Sharks' two
threats.
With nearly six minutes left
in the half, Dusty May fell on a
Anderson fumble on the Wal-
ton 41 yard line. Taylor snap-
ped an 11 yard pass to
McFarland and Neel ran for
four, giving the Sharks a first
down on the Walton 29. Taylor
then hit Tim Beard with a pass


for a 19 yard gain. but a clip
nullified the drive and stopped
it cold on the Braves' 28.
The Shark defense forced
another Brave fumble on the
next play and the entire line
recovered on the Walton 15.
On the first play Keith Neel
swept around right end for the
score and Rick Taylor kicked
the extra point to give the
I,


Sharks their lone seven points.
In the third period, the
Braves scored twice more,
The Braves marched 79 yards
after the kick-off, in 12 plays to
push quarterback Anderson
over from the 10, with nearly
half the period's time gone.
Wade Stoutamire bulled
through the line to block the
extra point attempt.


The Braves last score and
the Sharks' last chance to
keep within sight of a victory
came when Brave Chip Wil-
liams returned a Shark punt
for 55 yards to score. Ander-
son kicked the extra point to
make the final score, Walton
26, Port St. Joe 7.
The Braves nearly scored
again late in the game when


they intercepted a Taylor
pass, with the Sharks desper-
ately trying to get something
going. With 2:58 left, the'
Braves made it to the Shark
four before the time ran out.
The Shark defense was busy
during the evening, with Vic
Gilbert leading the defensive
effort with 10 tackles and eight
assists. Wade Stoutamire had
10 tackles and five assists and
his blocked punt. Barry Nob-
les received credit for eight
tackles and two assists and

Cochran said, pointing to a

FTE is based on an average .
full time student equivalency
when the full time and part

are averaged out.
.Cochran said the school has

These include:
A responsibility for furnish-

Veteran Clinic Study

Looks AtNW Florida


Congressman Bob Sikes has
received assurance from Ray
Roberts, Chairman of the
House Committee on Veterans
Affairs that a study of Western
Florida will be conducted to
determine the viability of
constructing ah outpatient
clinic in that area. Notifica-
tion to Mr. Roberts came from
Dr. John D. Chase, Chief
Medical Director of the
Veterans Administration in-
Washington, D.C. The results;
of the Study will be reported to
the House Veterans Commit-
tee by October 31.
Congressman Sikes has long
stressed the need for such a
clinic in West Florida between


'Tallahassee and Pensacola.
Veterans in the area must
travel from 100 to 200 miles to
V.A. facilities in Mississippi or
Alabama for treatment or a
considerable further distance
to facilities in Florida. There
are many retirees in the area
who are Veterans and hard-
ship is imposed on those who
have to travel such great
distance for medical atten-
tion. The situation is also
difficult for families of Vet-
erans who are receiving
treatment in V.A. facilities.
It is Congressman Sikes'
belief that there is ample
Justification for such a clinic
in that area.
