Agreement Indicated In Squabble


Over Oak Grove W&S Project


Attorney William J. Rish
reported to the County Com-
mission Tuesday at their regu-
lar meeting that it appears as
if a method has been worked
out to get the construction of
the Oak Grove Water and
Sewer system back on track.


Construction of the system
has been in every gear from
stop to just limping along
since early September when
the contractor, Tom Newkirk,
and his bonding company got
into a hassle about who would
receive the periodical pay-


Assessment Tests


Coming Next Week
During next week, October 17-21, students in grades 3,
5, 8 and 11 in all Gulf County schools will be given the
Florida Statewide Assessment Tests. These tests measure
achievement of basic skills in reading, writing and
mathematics.
In addition to the basic skills tests, eleventh graders
will also be tested on functional literacy in practical math
and reading tasks. The Educational Accountability Act of
1976 specifies that, beginning with the graduating class of'
.1978-79, all students must pass the state-administered
literacy test in order to receive a diploma. If a student
fails either math or reading sections or both sections of
the test, he must take the test again in October, 1978.
This week school principals are sending information
about the testing program to all parents with students in
the above grades. They urge parents and students to
cooperate in this statewide effort to provide information
on student achievement of basic skills, thereby identifying
educational needs at the student, school, district and state
levels.
Test results will be available in early December.


ments And just how much
money Newkirk would receive
to operate the job.
Rish said it appears as if a
compromise has been worked
out where both parties have
agreed to a local third party
receiving the payments on the
project and disbursing the
money for materials, labor
and to the bonding company.
But that doesn't mean all is
sweetness and light.
Newkirk had a letter in the
hands of the Commission
Tuesday saying he has receiv-
ed none of the last three
periodic payments and he has
been forced to shut down for
lack of payment. The money
was withheld by the county
until the courts could direct.


The Gulf County Commis-
sion passed up for the time
being Tuesday, an opportunity
to join the city of Mexico
Beach in securing a grant for
installation of a sewer system
to serve Mexico Beach in Bay
County and Beacon Hill and
St. Joe Beach in Gulf County.
Richard Sublette, an official
of the Department of Econo-
mic Resources, told the Gulf
Commission the money was
Available and wished the Com-
mission to state whether or not
it would be interested in
joining the Mexico Beach
venture either now or some
.time.irl the future.
' The Board's attornby,.Wil--
liam J. Rish told Sublette,
"This Board has been ap-
proached with this question
several times over the past
year or so and the fact is that


these people have no faith in
the government of Mexico
Beach. They change too.often
and the County Commission is
hesitant to act on the matter".
Sublette pointed out that
DER had money available
only for sewer installation and
that generous grants for such
systems are now. available for
the Panhandle. Sublette said
his organization had recom-
mended sewer installations
for the entire county, with the
Beaches banding together
with one treatment station and
the remainder of the south end
of the county dealing with the
City of Port St. Joe to dse their
treatment facilities.
Sublette said, "Today, the
EPA is getting ready to ap-
prove the Mexico Beach plan'
and we want to know to what
extent Gulf wants to partici-


pate to provide services for
the Beaches area. Do you wish
to participate in a study for
the three areas, with the end
result of building one treat-
ment plant at Mexico Beach?"
Rish again answered for the
Board by asking, "Why is


EPA freezing the application?
Does Gulf County get left out if
they do not join. with Mexico
Beach? We'd like a meeting
with the EPA director from
Atlanta to tell us the facts".

Mediator Talks of


Severe Differences


Federal mediator Jack
George told The Star Wed-
nesday morning that "ser-
ious differences" exist in
the negotiations between
St. Joe Paper Company
and its operation unions
toward agreeing to a new
working contract.
George said he has been
in constant contact with the
negotiators from the be-
ginning of attempting to
work out a new contract
and that he will be back in
Port St. Joe in just a few
days. "We are still trying
to find a solution", he said.
The mediator told The
Star that the strike vote
taken by the Electrical and


Papermakers union this
week does not necessarily
mean the unions will strike.
"The vote gives the nego-
tiators the permission of.
the members to serve a
10-day strike notice on the
company if they feel that is
the only alternative the
unions have left. We hope it
won't come to that", the
federal mediator said.
SGeorge, whose home of-
fice is in Mobile, Alabama,
is with the commission of
concilliation, federal med-
iators, and serves a circle
of territory out of Mobile,
with Port St. Joe being at
the extreme eastern edge
of his territory.


whether it should be paid to
Newkirk or his bonding com-
pany, as the company wished.
The County was in the
position of not wanting to take
sides with the construction
firm or the bonding company,
as they had the future comple-
tion of the system at stake at
the bid price. Both Newkirk
and the bonding company are
bound to see that the project is
finished as agreed.
The Commission is still not
going to turn any money
over, however, until Newkirk
meets their previous request
to flood the line already laid
and test it and to repair cuts
made in the roads and streets
in Oak Grove and left un-

Dog Attacks Child


A 23-month-old Panama
City child was attacked and
mauled by a large dog in
White City Monday, according
to Sheriff Ken Murphy.
The Sheriff said the small
child was playing in the yard
of a relative at Fourth and
Beaty Streets in White City
when the dog attacked.
The attack resulted in the
child needing three stitches in
the forehead and two stitches


over the eye.
Sheriff Murphy said the dog,
which had been tied but had
broken loose, belonged to Jes-
sie Howard of White City. The
dog has been quarantined at
the home of the owner pending
further investigation. The dog
had not been innoculated for
rabies.
The incident was investigat-

In one of the Sunday supplement
magazines, ChriStiiia Ellen Moller,
America's Junior Miss for 1977 said,
"I'd make requirements for grad-
uating students stiffer. High school
diplomas don't mean much anymore
because they're:too; simple to come
by ... I'd rather be taught than have
to work at learning. We're forgetting
how to learn and think." That's a
pretty deep observation for a 17-
year-old.
If our students are to pass their
Pupil Placement Tests and have an
education, we believe Miss Moller's'
observations are going to have to be
listened to and applied in our
education system.
We welcome the tests. They will
settle the argumejt.nce. and for all
.about whether ouir children :are
--getting a good -education and we
believe they will pinpoint the prob-
lem right at the inability of the
student to read instructions to
answer the question, the inability
to figure out the correct answer and
the inability to put down in writing
what he has figured out.
It doesn't take too much thought
to figure out what will remedy these
deficiencies.

which need it worse than these four
here in the city.
The City Commission made a
request that these streets be paved
some few years back and we
appreciate the County getting them
on their list and having them
surfaced.
We had better enjoy these newly
paved streets, because with the new
program for paving being entered
into by the Department of Transpor-
tation, these may bethe last we will
get in quite some time.

Smokey Visits

These students in the Port St. Joe Elementary School
Kindergarten classes were thrilled on Monday of this week
by a visit from Smokey the Bear, the Florida Forest Service
emblem of fire safety in the woods. The kids were told by
Smokey about how important, especially during "Fire
Prevention Week" to be aware of the ways in which fires
start in the home and in the woods. "Fire is a destructive
thing", Smokey said, in stressing the danger and the
destruction caused from fires.
The little girl in the photo at right was just thrilled to
pieces because Smokey shook her hand. -Star photos



Week Stresses


Fire Prevention


Sunday through Saturday
(October 9-15) is Fire Preven-
tion Week in Florida and
throughout the nation. State
Treasurer-Insurance Com-
missioner Bill Gunter, who is
also the State's Fire Marshal,
is encouraging Floridians not
to celebrate the week but to
observe it, not only this week,
but every week of the year.
Gunter and Gov. Reuben
Askew have officially pro-
claimed this week Fire Pre-
vention Week in Florida. The
joint proclamation calls on all
Floridians to participate in
fire prevention programs and
to support their local fire
departments in their efforts to
reduce loss of life and pro-
perty from fire.
"Fire prevention is one area
that everyone can be involved
in, from the child in pre-school
who is warned not to play with
matches to the senior citizen
who is reminded that smoking
in bed is dangerous," said
Gunter.
Last year in Florida alone,
almost 200 people lost their
lives in fires.
"We want to cut that num-
ber in half this year and keep
cutting each year until there
are no lives lost by fire in
Florida," Gunter said. "Add-
ed to that, there are thousands
of fire related injuries each
year, injuries that could be
avoided."
"A lot of the injuries are due
to carelessness," said Gunter.
"With a little precaution,
many accidents could be pre-
vented."
Millions of dollars in pro-
perty-often a family's pos-
sessions from an entire life-
time of work--go up in smoke
each year. These losses could
often be prevented simply by
not overloading an outlet or
not leaving open flames un-
attended.
"These are the kinds of
precautions that the family
could take part in, patrolling
each other," Gunter said.
With property loss comes
the economic losses, loss, of
employment and wasted re-
sources that no one can afford.
"The spinoff from a fire in
the home or an industrial fire
is astonishing and more often

than not, the family or busi-
ness never fully recuperates,"
said Gunter.
While there have been many
advances made in recent
years in fire prevention, such
as construction with fire re-
tardant materials, Gunter
said, "the final responsibility
still lies with the individual
and a personal commitment
to prevent fires in the home, at
work and in the community."

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


The other morning, I was going along at my
usual speed getting ready for the day when
Frenchie came in the bedroom where I was
trying to get good awake and said, "Hurry up
and get ready, breakfast is nearly ready and
getting cold".
I'm telling you now, that perked me up and
wiped all the cobwebs out of my head, propped
my eyes open and put my feet on the floor. I'm
usually hungry as a bear in the morning and I
could just vision some crisp brown bacon, an egg
or two maybe poached or tender fried, a bowl of
grits with a pat or two of butter swimming on top
and a piece of toast which had already been
scraped. I hurried in the bathroom to wash my
teeth, shave and do the other things one has to do
' in the morning.
I dressed in almost record time that morning
and hobbled into the kitchen where breakfast is
usually served.
How does a bowl of corn flakes get cold? And
what if it did?..

After declaring I was going to wait for the
second phase of the dove season to come in
before I went to do some of my favorite hunting, I
backed down from my resolve last Saturday.
Number one son, Ray, called me Friday and
said, "Daddy, I'm going up to Marianna to John
Scott's peanut field Saturday morning. He called
and said they had just picked some peanuts on
two 10-acre fields".
Hunting doves is my favorite sport since it
doesn't take much walking and one can get out in
the outdoors in a cool breeze and just blast away
to your heart's content. So, I relented and said,
"OK, I'll go. Come by and pick me up".
We went, and sure enough young John Scott
had picked his peanuts and was in the midst of
trying to pick a 40-acre field when we got there
before the Saturday night rains came and made
him lose some of the goobers.
I got the gentle breeze, since the cool wind
blew all afternoon long. I got some sun and
reddened my face to the color of a constant blush
and got to blast away for a couple of times on two
or three occasions.
I got to do everything I like to do on a dove
hunt except bring home some meat to eat.
Maybe next time.


Did you see Whitey Herzog give away the
American League championship Sunday night?
I say he gave it away, because I think if he
had left his pitcher, Splittorf in the game, he
would have won and we would see the Kansas
City Royals in the World Series rather than the
Yankees.
In spite of having over $6 million invested ini
pitchers, the Yankees still had to take advantage
of someone else's error to win the pennant.
I don't think they will take the Series.

I see where they had a yarn telling
convention in Jonesboro, Tennessee last week.
The convention was financed by a grant in
order to preserve story telling in the United
States. According to the article, story telling is
getting to be a lost art.
I didn't know that.
One couldn't tell that story telling is
becoming a lost art around here. Most anywhere
there are at least three or four men gathered
together around a coffee pot there is some story
telling going on.
Maybe story telling is becoming a lost art in
part of the nation, but here in Gulf County it is a
live and going proposition.

Preacher Sid Ellis told the Rotary Club last
week his life story, which is as interesting as any
novel one ever read. Sid, born in England, was in
the thick of the London blitz, serving as a
policeman, a militia man and in the regular
army. He was also among the many Britons who
helped with the evacuation of Dunkirk.
Sid told of his school days when he had to
take 14 academic subjects each year and the
English students went to school from 8:00 in the
morning until 6:30 in the evening. Then it was
study time.
Sid told about his entering the ministry, after
wanting to for many years, after he came to the
United States. He said, "I just couldn't pay for
the training until that time." During his talk he
passed around several pictures and clippings
which he had collected over the years and which
illustrated his narrative. One of the pieces was a
card which he has had since he entered the
ministry. There was a slogan at the bottom of the
card which said, "If you think the world Is
overpopulated, wait until you see hades."
That's something to think about.

been employed by Mexico
Beach to make their engineer-
ing study for the system then
took the floor and reported on
what his fitm has already
done.
Mariello said his firm has
made studies of five different
ways to handle the treatment
of the Beach sewage. "The
cheapest thing for everyone is
to put in one treatment sys-
tem for the entire area".

Mariello hinted that the most
practical way they had devis-
ed for treatment was the
spray method now being used
in Lynn Haven.
Rish then hit him with, "I
get calls every day about that
system. You and I both know it
isn't working".
Mariello still didn't say
what treatment method they
would suggest but he did say
the service would cost the
customers around $12 to $13
per month.
Commissioner William R.
Branch said, "We find that the
people at the Beaches want
good water more than they
want a sewer system. The
septic tanks they now use
work very well in the beach
sand and are causing no
problem. I think our primary
concern is to get a water
system at the Beach."
Sublette pointed out that his
organization had funding only
for sewer and that there were
no grants available for water
systems. "The reason for our
program", he said, "Is to
protect our streams and en-
vironment from sewage pollu-
tion. We are inter nested, in
sewage treatment systems as
a tool to fight pollution".
Neither Sublette nor Mari-
ello were able to get the
Commission to agree to even
consider hooking on to such a
system' at any time in the
future. "We just want to know
if you might be interested in
the future so we can put in
mains to take care of you if
you decide to come in."
What the County Commis-
sion settled for was a special
confrontation with an Atlanta
representative of DER to
come meet with them and
answer questions. Sublette
said he would set up such a
meeting for Monday, October
17 at 7:00 p.m.

Barrier Marks 50Years As A Mason


W.W. Barrier, Sr., a mem-
ber of Port St.Joe Lodge No.
111, F & AM, was honored at a
recent meeting of the local
Lodge, for having been a
member, of the fraternity for
more than 50 years.
Mr. Barrier was first ini-
tiated into the Masonic Fra-
ternity during the year of 1921
in the state of Virginia, and
made a Master Mason in 1922.
He moved his membership to
the local Lodge in 1940.

spector E. F. Gunn told the
Board.
Gunn also said he had
refused to approve the last
request for payment because
"everything reported as fin-
ished on the report hasn't been
finished. When the report is
made out correctly, I'll ap-
prove it".
Newkirk claims over $43,000
in payments are now due and
he will terminate the contract
within 10 days if some pay-
ment has not been made.
Presumably the arrange-
ments made to handle the
periodic payments for the
project work will correct the
biggest bottleneck in the pro-
ject and it will be going along
at full speed after the first of
the week.


The District Deputy Grand
Master, Fourth Masonic Dis-
trict, F & AM, Right Worship-
ful Henry Kelly, Jr. presented
Mr. Barrier with a framed


plaque attesting to his many
years of service to the Fra-
ternity and a life-time paid
dues card. Mr. Barrier has
now joined a very select group


of Masons in the Port St. Joe
Lodge which has a total of only
six 50 year members out of a
membership of more than 135
active members.

"The need is great," Mrs.

-One in four families is

-An estimated 75 percent of

Ellis


Tells


Story
Recently, Rotarians gave a
Short synopsis of their person-
al history, all except Rev.
Sidney Ellis, who happened to
be away on vacation at the
time. Last Thursday, it was
Ellis' time and he unwound an
r interesting tale of his life,
which has spanned much of
the world.
Ellis was, as he described
himself, "a World War-i'
baby", born in Putney, Eng-
land, the son of an Ironmonger
(a hardware merchant). At a
tender age, his family moved
to north London where Sidney
entered school. In the lower
grades, he was expected to
take 14 different subjects,
including several foreign lang-
uages, which he was expected
to study during the seven
study periods each day.
When he became a teen-
ager, it was customary for
British boys to enter boarding
school, where the academic
day began with a wake-up call
at 6:00 in the morning and
ended just in time for dinner
at 6:30 in the evening. The day
was broken up with a three
hour period for lunch and
physical education.
After school, he went into
the export business but was
shortly called to duty by World
War II. He first served as a
policeman in London, then
moved to the Militia and was
soon drafted into the army.
In his military service, he
was involved in helping to
evacuate Dunkirk and served
in Egypt, Greece, Malta and
i Italy.
After the war he moved to
the farm where he stayed a
short while then bought a
country grocery store.
Health forced him to move
and he came to the United
States and settled in Missis-
sippi.
,Even while living in Eng-
land, he had felt a call to the
ministry, but could never
afford the schooling he felt
was necessary. Here in the
United States he had the
opportunity to go to Sewannee
in Tennessee to prepare for
the ministry and has been


there ever since.
He served several churches
in Mississippi before moving
to Port St. Joe seven years
ago.
While living as an adult in
England, he was very active
as a leader of the Boys
Brigade, which he described
as a boys movement similar to
the Boy Scouts and founded by
the same man, Lord Baden
Powell. Ellis taught the boys
gymnastics and was very
proficient at the sport himself.
Guests of the club Thursday
were John Brock of Pensacola
and Wheelettes, Stacey Tram-
mell and Cherry Stebel.
Bo Boyette, manager of
Basic Magnesia, was taken
into the club as a new mem-
hber.

Die Not


In Car
You don't have to be in a
vehicle to be killed in a motor
vehicle accident said the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "Almost one
out of every three persons or
36 percent killed in motor
vehicle accidents in 1976! in
Florida were not in cars,
trucks or buses. Of the 2,015
persons killed, 504 were pedes-
trians, 58 were bicyclists and
154 were motor-cyclists.".
He continued, "Motorists
must be aware of the legal
rights of others to use -the
streets and highways and
must exercise caution and
courtesy toward pedestrians,
bicyclists, horseback riders;
motorcyclists and drivers of
slow moving farm vehicles
and construction equipment."
"On the other hand, people
not in motor vehicles musf
abide by the special rules
applicable to them. Pedes-
trians, for instance, must obey
traffic signs and signals, "se
sidewalks if available or walk
off the pavement on the left
side of the road facing traffic
when there are no walks.-'At
night they should wear light
colored or reflective clothing
and carry a light."
The director concluded by
reminding all people who use
our roadways to "Stay alert
and stay alive."

Lack of


Fuel Is


Concern .:-
The adequacy of our'f .
resources is a 'wide spread
concern these days.
In 1850, ninety percent of the
Nation's energy was supplied
by fuel wood. As late as 1900,
about half of all industrial raw
material came from the for-
est.
By the end of the 19th
century, the depletion of the
Nation's energy was supplied
by fuel wood. As late as 1900,
about half of all industrial raw
material came from the for-
:est.
By the end of the 19th
century, the depletion of east-
ern forest caused a great
surge of efforts towards con-
servation.
As time passed early pre-
cepts were forgotten, and
today we have come full
circle. The growth of world
population along with rapidly
rising percapita consumption
has increased prices, and the
concern for raw materials is
rising.,
From recent studies, along
with other sources, it. is evi-
dent that matters of popula-
tion, energy, materials, and
the environment are inter-
woven, and that we will in-
creasingly be affected by the
national and international
supply and flow of materials.

Gulf County Commission
has been asked to approve
a subdivision on St. Joseph
Peninsula named Cape San
Bias Shores, but information
received at their regular
meeting Tuesday has caused
the Commission to-have sec-
ond thoughts about the mat-
ter. The Board is especially
concerned since they have
been asked to grant a variance
in the Subdivision to allow
several lots to be included
which are smaller than re-
quired by the State Health
Department for property con-
taining water wells and septic
tanks.
After work began on prepar-
ing the Subdivision the State
passed a law requiring all lots
containing water wells and
septic tanks to be at least a
half acre in size and be no
shorter than 100 feet on the
shortest side. Some of the lots
in the new Subdivision are 80
feet on the shortest side
although all are at least a half
acre in area.
Word was received from the
Health Department Tuesday
that no potable water is avail-


able on the Peninsula except
from shallow wells which
would have an uncertain sup-
ply. Deep wells in the area
have turned up nothing but
salty water.
The report cited the St.
Joseph State Park as an
example stating that the park
has had to resort to getting its
water supply from nearly 20
shallow wells and even then
the supplyis short when it has
an influx of visitors.
Now, the Commission wants
a conference with water ex-
perts from the State Board of
Health to advise them of what
to expect as a water supply
from the area before they give
their final approval of the
subdivision plat.
One of the things they
considered was granting the
Subdivision request with a
stipulation that the developers
inform a prospective buyer of
the water problem.
"How are you going to be
sure they do that after the plat
is accepted", Chairman Ow-
ens asked.
The Commission will ask
local Health Department rep-

MEXICO BEACH VOTERS

Whilemy opponent and his support-
ers are explaining to you about what good
things they have done for the town and what
good things they are going to do in the
future, ask them to explain their record.
Ask them why they tried to prevent all five
seats from being on the ballot when the
charter is very clear on the matter. Ask
them what specific acts of the legislature
have changed portions of the charter which
they choose to ignore. Ask why we can not
keep a town lawyer. Ask why the Town
Clerk resigned earlier this year and was
rehired, and why two Councilmen recently
voted to fire him. Ask why the former
Mayor and a Councilman resigned earlier
this year. Ask why the Town Council and
Town Clerk don't get along. Ask how tax
money (about $250,000) which comes into
Mexico Beach each year benefits you. Ask
why Town Hall looks like a town junk yard.
Ask for a reasonable explanation of what or
who caused the current problems with the
canal sand transfer system. Ask what
,happened to the motor on the road grader.
'Ask who really runs Mexico Beach.-the
Town Council?- the Town Clerk?--or
a small group of influential people who are
not in public office? These and many other
questions need an answer by the opponent
and his supporters.

I believe that Mexico Beach voters
are fed up with the situation here and want
action rather than excuses and unsupported
rumors.

Open Letter to Voters of Mexico Beach


The incumbent town council of Mexico Beach has announced
its intention to seek election in its entirety on 8 November. This body
of candidates proposes that returning them to office will mean
continued progress for the town.
What specific acts or benefits for all the citizens has this
council accomplished in the name of progress?

They include but certainly are not limited to:

1. Extending one of the highest property taxes in Florida for
another year.

2. Attempting to deprive you of your right to vote for all of
your elected representatives by a series of resignations and appoint-
ments to different council positions in May, 1977.

3. Depriving the citizens the right to be heard at the town
council meetings unless a request is made before the agenda is even
posted.

4. Streets which are deplorable seem to receive work only
the month before an election.

5. Total governmental turmoil including continued day-to-
day operational problems and numerous resignations of elected and
appointed officials.

If you believe you deserve better representation, vote for a
complete change on November 8, 1977.

Consider Sowing Rye Grass for A George
Durg W Small -

Green Lawn During Winter Months Degree


: Homeowners wanting a
green lawn during the winter
should consider sowing rye-
grass.
'Ryegrass is desirable for
landscape plantings where
there are many deciduous
trees and shrubs. It provides a
strong contrast color in the
environment and is very at-
tractive as background for
major plantings of spring
flowering bulbs and early-
flowering trees and shrubs.
Common ryegrass has
many names, including Ital-
ian, American, Oregon, im-
ported, domestic, native and.
annual rye. It is widely
adapted, does well in either
sun or shade and tolerates
frequent close mowing. If
seeded heavily and mowed
closely, it can provide a very
dense and attractive lawn
Throughout the winter. Since it
is an annual it will die out in
late spring or early summer.
By the time the ryegrass dies,


the permanent lawngrass
should be actively growing
and will provide color and
cover the rest of the growing
season. The ryegrass will
have to be reseeded the next
winter when the permanent
grass again browns off and
goes dormant.
Establishment of winter
ryegrass is a fairly simple
procedure. It is best to wait
until the permanent lawn-
grass is approaching or has
reached its dormant period.
This means seeding around
mid-to-late November in cen-
tral and northern Florida.
South Florida is usually so
warm that the lawngrasses
don't go dormant. However,
they may discolor enough to
justify the use of ryegrass for
winter color.
The lawn should be mowed
very close, raked and
trimmed otherwise to remove
as much debris as possible..
Close mowing is usually the


most homeowners can do but
de-thatching (removal of the
excessive spongy debris) is
very desirable. Anyway, re-
move as much of the dead or
browned grass as possible.
Broadcast 5 to 15 pounds of
fresh, weed-free seed per 1,000
square feet of surface area
and rake lightly to get the seed
through the old sod and in
contact with the soil. A fertili-
zer spreader can be used to
apply the seed. For best
coverage apply half the seed
in one direction and the rest at
a right angle to: the first
application. A more uniform
stand can be established this
way. It is not absolutely
necessary but if possible, top-
dress the seed with about
one-eighth inch of soil to cover
the seed. The trick in estab-
lishing the ryegrass is pioper
watering. The seed must be
kept moist, not flooded, for
proper germination and
growth of the seedlings. This


may mean light watering
several times a day, especial-
ly during mid-day. Water just
enough to keep the seeds
moist. Continue frequent
watering until the plants are
well established.
Begin mowing when the
grass is tall enough to be
cut-around one to two inches.
Maintain this height by
weekly cutting throughout the
winter. Water when necessary
and fertilize as often as neces-
sary and fertilize as often as
necessary to maintain desired
growth and color.
Don't leave your lawn
brown and unsightly this win-
ter. Color it green with rye-
grass, and go first class with
grass!

His matter, the joint meeting

.The Board then resumed the
regular meeting in the County
missionsin Board Room, to
insider adoption of the ten-
tative budget for advertise-
;-nnt. Financial Officer Jerry
Gales then told the Board they
could levy the village as cer-
Iified by the Property ap-
praiser which would bring in
:;he same amount of tax dol-
lars as the previous year. To
do this, he stated, the Board
would have to transfer all race
track funds from the Road arid
Bridge budget to the General
Fund and finance the increase
-i! the Sheriff's budget from
Federal Revenue sharing. In
addition, the Board would
have to curb any excess
spending because the budget
did not allow any large re-
serves for contingencies. The
Chairman stated he was in
favor of this plan since the
Board had purchased two new
.dump trucks and a new hy-
draulic excavator for the
-Road Department. In addi-
tion, he stated, the Sheriff
would be able to buy at least
three new patrol cars and the
Board would not have to raise
taxes. After' further discus-
sion, Comm. Kennedy moved
the Board tentatively adopt
flie budget and advertise' for
the public hearing at 7:00

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13 1977 THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla,


William R. Branch, and Leo
Kennedy. Others present
were: Clerk George Y. Core,
Sheriff Ken Murphy, Attorney
William J. Rish, Engineer
Steve Nations, Mosquito Con-
trol Supervisor Tommy Pitts
and Road Supefintendent
Lloyd Whitfield. i
The meeting came to order
at 7:00 p.m.
SRev. Billy Heaton, pastor,
First Baptist Church, opened
the meeting with prayer, fol-
lowed by the pledge to the
flag.
The minutes of August 12,
were read, approved and
adopted.
Steve Wood petitioned the
Board to close and abandon a
portion of Fifth Avenue in
Highland View. He said the
County has no right of way on
this part of the Avenue, even
though the County did grade
the road one time to allow pas-
sage to an area east of High-
land View. There was a motion
by Comm. Davis, seconded by
Comm. Branch, and unani-
mously carried, that the
Board advertise to close this
portion of the street.
Sgt. Glen McDaniel and
Trooper Miller of the Florida
Highway Patrol presented a
proposed resolution wherein
the County opposes any
change in the present super-
vision and policing of the
Florida Motor Vehicle Inspec-
tion Program. There was a
motion by Comm. Davis to
adopt the resolution, no
second. In a discussion that
followed, Comm. Branch sug-
gested the Board adopt a
resolution abolishing this pro-
gram. The Board 'generally
agreed that the program
served no worthwhile purpose.
Comm. Kennedy said he
would like to study this ques-
tion before it is dropped.
H. C. Burkelt and five other
citizens s living at Land's Lak'e'
told the Board of much needed
street work in their commun-
ity. Comm. Davis said that he
and the Asst. Road Superin-
tendent have already inspect-
ed these streets and know
what should be done. The
Road Superintendent said he
was working on some emer-
gency work at this time, but
would get to those streets as
soon as possible.
Michael Roche and David
Roche appeared before the
Board and asked what would
be required in their deeding
the County a street in Oak
Grove. The Board said it will
require a legal description and
that the street must be
brought up to grade.
The Board entered into a
discussion as to the Oak Grove
Water and Sewer project. The
Attorney advised the Board
that the contractor entered in
to an agreement with the
Bonding Company, whereby
all payments due the Contrac-
tor, from the County, would be
made jointly to the Contrac-
tor and the Bonding Com-
pany; that this arrangement
was the result of a prior job
that resulted in some financial
problems between these two
parties; that the County has
gone on record as favoring the
agreement between these two
firms, but, that it now appears
that these two parties are
having disagreements as to
what items of expense the
funds should be applied to.
The Attorney said-he has been
meeting with the Contractor.
and the Bonding Company on
several occasions and that
another meeting is Set up for
the afternoon of August 24. He
said he was spending much
more time in this matter than
is usually required: however.
he was instructed to do every-
thing possible to prevent the


U . . .


Contractor from defaulting.
Steve Nations, Florida Ergi-
neers, informed the Board
that he has surveyed the area
between the Roche property
and the nearest connecting
point to the sewer system as
designed and finds that only
300 feet of this property will
flow in the desired direction
and that to follow this route, a
lift station will be required at
a cost of approximately $7,000,
plus the costs of the wet well
and electrical work. It was
suggested that another route
be followed which would be
much further in distance but
may cost less than the use of a'
lift station. The Engineer was
instructed to make an esti-
mateon this.
The Clerk reported that
$260,000.00 has been approved
for this project. The contract
price is $208,084.00, leaving a
balance of $51,916.00. Other
estimate fees chargeable to
this amount is: Legal and
bond fees, $7,000.00i the first
year's interest, $7,000.00; eng-
ineers' fees, $18,683.38; in-
spection fees, $3,600.00;
change order no. 1, about
$2,100.00. It was decided that
allowing for several items that
may not be used in the origi-
nal contract, which would be a
credit to the County, that
approximately $15,000.00 will
be available for all future
change orders, including the
one now being prepared to
extend the lines to the Roche
property.
Florida Engineering Asso-
ciates, Inc. presented est-
imate no. two, in the amount
of $902.66, for services on the
Oak Grove project. Upon
motion by Comm. Davis,
seconded by Comm. Branch,
and unanimously carried, this
bill was ordered paid.
By letter,'dated August 8,
the City of Port St. Joe offered
to purchase and install a six
inch rhaster meter, a bypass,
and water valve for the Oak
Grove System at a cost to the
City of $8,000.00 and requested
the County to pay over to the
City the sum of $5,250.00,
which would be deducted from
the original contract. After
lengthy, discussion, there was
a motion by Comm. Branch,
seconded by Comm. Gort-
man, and unanimously car-
ried, that, subject to approval
by FHA, this proposal will be
accepted, except the County
will not pay the City the
$5,250.00.

cross State Road S-30. The
Board decided that because
the crossing is on a primary
road, the County has no juris-
diction in this matter.
Upon motion by Comm.
Davis, seconded by Comm.
Kennedy, and unanimously
carried, the following two bills
were approved for payment,
to-wit:
Library project: estimate
no. 7, Charles A. Gaskin,
architect, $438.21; estimate
no. 5, Kolmetz Construction,
contractor, $24,485.00.
The following applications
for employment were re-
ceived and examined: Willie
Edward Burrows, Dianna Jo
Harrison, Katrina D. McNeal,
Mary D. Bryant, Ronnie Eu-
gene Robershaw, Ronald Lynn
Pridgeon, Charles W. Bentley,
Delores, Ann Carroll, James
Pickron, Robert D. Purswell,
Emory W. Yand, Earnest
Hand and Thomas E. Arnold.
E. F. Gunn, County Inspec-
tor, filed reports no. 47-57 on
the Oak Grove Project and no.
98-107 on the library project.
The Board was notified that
gasoline prices have in-
creased six-tenths of one cent,
or 52' percent per gallon.
By letter the Board was noti-
fied that its estimated costs
for the Medicaid program for
1977-78 is $10,002.70 hospital
inpatient and $12,176.24 nurs-
ing home.
The Board discussed emer-
gency electrical inspections
when E. F. Gunn is out of
town. After discussion, the
Board agreed for Mr. Gunn to
teach Tommy Pitts to make
these inspections and that Mr.
Pitts will be authorized to do
this work, providing he will
agree to do it.
The Road Superintendent
reported that secondary road
maintenance for July costs
$7,894.97.
Comm. Branch asked the
Commission to think about the
possibility of meeting with the
City of Wewahitchka and Port
St. Joe and the School Board to
discuss getting someone to
work full time in securing
Federal and State grants. He
said this would be better than
joining a planning council.
Comm. Gortman told the
Board that the Wewa Jaycees
want to lease the second floor
of the old courthouse to use as-
a "Haunted House" during the
'week of Halloween. The Chair-
mman said a "hold harmless"
'clause must be included in the
lease, with a sufficient num-
ber of the members signing it.
Comm. Gortman then told
the Board that the City of
Wewa Fire Department is re-
questing permission to install
a fire hydrant on the Dead
Lakes Bridge and at the boat
ramp at Land's Landing on
the Chipola River. The Board
said it has no objections to this
proposal.
Comm. Gortman told the
Board that several trees
should be removed from the
old courthouse yard because
they are dead and that ,it
appears that others may be


dying. He said he would get
the Farm Agent to advise him
on the removal of the trees.
Comm. Kennedy told of an
accident at the postoffice
corner on U. S. 98. He said the
red light at that corner is the
one the Department of Trans-
portation said would be re-
moved, which would create a
situation making it much eas-
ier to have an accident at this
busy intersection. He said he
will fight this proposal all the
way to Washington if neces-
sary. He then asked the Road
Superintendent what has hap-
pened to the sign the Board
ordered to be installed at the
intersection of C-30 and U.S.
98, which was to show the dis-
tance to Indian Pass, the
State Park and Apalachicola.
The Superintendent said the
sign is on order.
Mr. Kennedy then told the
Board he is receiving com-
plaints on the workmanship of
the road grading personnel.
The Chairman asked the
Superintendent to correct this
matter.
The Chairman said a lady
has filed a complaint as to the
manner she was treated by a
Public Health-nurse in the
Port St. Joe Health Center.
Comm. Kennedy was instruct-
ed to investigate this matter.
The Chairman instructed
the Superintendent to clean
the ditches in White City as
soon as possible.
Florida Engineers present-
ed a preliminary plat of Pen-
insula Estates, located on St.
Joseph Peninsula, and re-
quested the plat be tentatively
approved and that the Road
Superintendent be instructed
to inspect the streets to deter-
mine if they are constructed
according to County specifica-
tions. The Chairman instruct-
ed the Superintendent to check
each street and report his
findings to the Board.
Upon motion by Comm.
Branch, seconded by Comm.
Kennedy, and unanimous
vote, the Board approved the
following budget amendment
in the Mosquito Control Bud-
get. Copy of said budget
amendment is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Whereupon, Comm. Branch
introduced the following resol-
ution, seconded by Comm.
Davis, and upon vote was
unanimously adopted.

Gators Edged for First


Loss of Season by Aucilla


By Dean Modling
Wewahitchka High School
The Wewahitchka Gators,
rated number three in the
state, lost their first game last
Friday night at the hands of
number five Aucilla Warriors,
7-0, in Aucilla.
Both defenses shut down.
each other, and after trading
two:sets of punts,.Wewa had
Sthe ball first and 10 on their
own 30. However they couldn't
move.the ball, and a bad snap
from center on punt situation
gave Aucilla excellent field
position on Wewa's 10-yard
line.
Aucilla quarterback Saun-
ders gained five yards on a
keeper. On second down, Jim
Anderson ran the ball in for a
touchdown, with Lamar Eng-
lish adding the extra point.
With 11:02 left in the half,
Aucilla led, 7-0.
Wewa was able to return the
ensuing kickoff to the 31,
where Mathes tried once more
to generate some offense.
Gray ran for nine yards on
first down, but an offside
penalty on second down just
about nullified the gain.
Forced into a punting situa-
tion, an over-anxious Aucilla
lineman ran into Mathes, giv-
ing Wewa a' first down on
Aucilla's own 49. But the
Aucilla defense clamped down
hard, forcing Wewa into a-
another punting position on a
fourth and ten. Aucilla took
over on their own 22 after a
seven-yard runback.
V Using a balanced running
and passing attack, Saunders
guided his team to Wewa's 37
yard line. With third and six,
the Aucilla quarterback com-
pleted an 11-yard pass to Jake
Sullivan. With the Warriors'
knocking on the door, Wewa's
defense suddenly realized
they were in a football game.
Wewa's Clyde Gray picked
off a Saunder's pass in the end
zonk for a touchback. So with
1:57 left in the half, the Gators
could now breathe easier on
their own 20. Or so they
thought.
With 1:28 showing on the
clock, Mathes fumbled while
pitching to Gray. An obliging
Warrior defensive lineman
fell on it, giving Aucilla first.
and goal'on the 91-yard line.
The Gators defensive line
held once again, with a com-
bination of offensive mis-plays
and luck. With 12 seconds left
in the half, Wewa sufficedto
let the time run out.
,./'j Although Aucilla kicked off
'. to open the second half, Wewa
still couldn't manage to put
anything together, as Mathes
fumbled the ball on Wewa's
own 42.
For close to three minutes,
Aucilla controlled the ball,
moving it downfield to the 16.
The Aucilla quarterback fum-
bled on a play and Gator Cha


McFann recovered.
Tim Pippin replaced Greg
Mathes as Gator quarterback,
and attempted to move the
ball. His second down pass
was intercepted at midfield,
but was called back, roughing
the passer. Wewa got a first
and 10 on the 32.
With a new lease on life, it
appeared the Gators would
finally do something, and.
moved the ball to the 49'-
yard line of Aucilla. Two in-
complete passes forced
Mathes to punt the ball away.
With 11 minutes left in the
game, Aucilla began taking
their time to use up the clock,
while keeping control of the
ball. When they were finally
forced to punt, only 71/2 min-
utes remained to play.
The partially blocked punt
rolled dead pn Wewa's. 48,
where an official called a per-
sonal foul against Aucilla,
giving the Gators a prime
position on Aucilla's 38, with
seven minutes left to play.
Dozier ran the ball to the 22
getting a badly needed first
down. But from then on no-
thing went right, and Wewa
couldn't make another first
down.
Aucilla took over, and from
then on, Saunders and Wyche
took turns running the ball
until time ran out.
Although Aucilla gained 352
yards, they scored only seven
points. Wewa just had Lady
Luck on their side when Aucil-

The Sharks dressed out only
18 players this past week end
as the decimated team fell
victim to the Marianna Bull-
dogs Friday in Marianna.
Five starting Sharks were
on the sideline with injuries as
play got underway Friday.
Rick Taylor, quarterback;
Barry Nobles, lineman; Lyn-
don Thomas, defensive half-
back; Tom Bouington, center;
and James Parker, lineman;
all normal starters, were side-
lined Friday night with in-
juries before the game start-
ed.
For the Bulldogs the scoring
started early in the first
period. They began their scor-
ing drive after returning the
starting kickoff to the 45-yard
line and from there pushed it
to the two before Henck dove
over for the touchdown. The
extra point was good, making
the score 7-0 with 5:12 left in
the first quarter.
The Dogs made two more
scores before the half. The
first came with 5:11 left in the
half, on a nine-yard run by
Bellamy, with the extra point
attempt good. The last score
of the half came off a three-
yard run by Henck, set up by
two long pass plays by the
Bulldogs. Halftime saw the
score at 20-0 Marianna.
Marianna made its final
scoring effort with 29 seconds
left in the third quarter, when
Henck made his third, touch-
down of the evening on a
three-yard surge up the mid-
dle; The extra point was good
making the final score 27-0.
The Sharks had only two
real offensive sparks for the
evening; one ,was a kickoff
return by Keith Neel, to the
Mariatina 47, and the other
was a kickoff return by Mc-
Farland to the St. Joe 39-yard
line, neither of which proved
to be a threat for, the tough
Marianna Bulldogs.
Defensively for the evening
Drexell Garland led the


unidentified
in the gut of


Friday

Sharks with eight tackles and
four assists. Also defensive
standouts were Victor Gil-
bert with seven tackles and
four assists; Jerry Shores
with six tackles and five as-
sists; Keith Neel with six
tackles, four assists; McFar-
land with six tackles, two a-
sists and John Anderson with
five tackles and four assists.
The Sharks expect only two
of the five starters out to
return to play this Friday
night, when the Sharks play
Chattahoochee for Home-
coming. James Parker and
Barry Nobles will be back in
action. Parker has been sick
with the flu, and Nobles had a
strained back. Rick Taylor,
out with strained ligaments;
Lyndon Thompson, foot in-
juries; aid Tom Bouington,
shoulder separation; are all
listed as doubtful for action
this Friday.
The Sharks will host the
Chattahoochee Yellow Jack-
ets this Friday evening at
Shark stadium for Homecom-
ing. Game time is 8:00, with
pre-game festivities begin-
ning at 7:30.
