With the exception of the
late '30's or;,that period just
after the big iar, Port St. Joe
has experienced probably its
largest home building boom
during this decade.
Economics will force the
City Commission to accept the
estimate and just grin and

The Commission does not
agree with the estimate that
the City is losing population.

New Pastor

for W.C.

Rev. J. B. Ansley has ac-
cepted the call of White City
Baptist Church to serve as
their pastor. Rev. Ansley is
well known in the Northwest
Florida area, having served in
several churches during his 32
year ministry.
Rev. Ansley and his wife :
reside in Springfield, and will
be commuting to White City
each week. Plans are being
made for many new areas of
work under the leadership of
the new pastor.

The check was put out in

rate of 7.4 percent interest.

Friday was a banking holi-
day and it was Monday of this
week before the money could

The City Commission'came
within a hair of hiring Russell

hassee Tuesday to perform a
201 Study required by the
Federal Government for the
Wastewater Treatment plant
as a requisite for receiving
$3.64 million dollars in grants
for constructing the waste
disposal system.
The government wants to
know if the system is doing
what it was supposed to do and
if any improvements can be
made. Also, they wish to know
the capability of the plant to
receive sewage and wastes
from other settled sections of
the south end of Gulf County
for treatment.
Russell and Axon was se-

The City has been notified
by the Department of Trans-
portation to take down the sig-
nal light on Monument Ave. in
front of the Post Office within
30 days. or the DOT will have
it removed.
The DOT has been after the
City to remove the light in the
past, but the Commission has
stood fast and said they want-
ed to keep the light in opera-

count 'at this point does not
justify the light..;

resist the removal of the light,
which it feels is necessary at

a different telephone number Monday mor-
ning, if you live in the area served by the Port

Editor Caught

It's not often that the Editor gets his mug in the
news column of this newspaper, since he is usually
behind the camera shutter himself when pictures
are made.
Lately however, many of the camera duties
have been turned over to his co-partner in such
shenanigans, number two son, Willie, and as a
consequence the Editor was caught in the position he
has been catching others in for years. ".\
Last Friday night, Band Parent President,
Tracy Pierce, right, presented a plaque to the
Editor for what Pierce and bandmaster Ray Smith
said was a general boosting of the band and its
program this year.
If the Editor had known this was coming off, he
would surely have left his overcoat at home, taken
off his cap and combed his thinning but still flowing
locks and worn a tie (the one without the gravy
spots) and put on a spiffy jacket.

Are Great
Dear Editor,
Thank you one and all who
gave generously to the Octo-
ber drive for Mental Health.
Our community contributed a
total of $522.29, which bene-
fits the Mental Health Asso-
ciation in Florida.
The Association is a group of
citizens working to promote
mental health in Florida, and
all who gave are a part of this
growing effort.
I would especially like to
acknowledge the work of the
Bellringer workers who col-
lected house-to-house.
Very truly yours,

I asked Gene how much he had put into the

A Layman's View


Psalm, Chapter 139
Key word: God is present.
There are times it seems
that Christians and non-
Christians alike are unaware
of God's ever-presence. We
act as though He is like a
neighbor, not always seeing or'
knowing what we are doing.
It's as if we feel our deeds, if
not displayed publicly, are of
no concern to God and is not
even known by Him.
However, this is not what
the Bible says. Psalm 139 is
too lengthy to quote all of it
here so I trust you will get
your Bible down and read it. A
few selected verses follow.
Verse 2: "Thou knowest my
downsitting and mine upris-
ing; thou understandest my
thought.afar off." It says God
knows when I sit and when I
get up. Also He even knows
what I am thinking.

Poor old Harry Lee Smith.
Would some of you people here in town take
turns in inviting him to your home for dinner? He
either doesn't know how to cook or he doesn't
have the money to buy groceries. Since he is a
batchelor, he has no one to care for his dietary
needs. He looks it too. Harry Lee is getting so
thin I fear for his safety during the winter when
we get those occasional cold blows around here.
Harry Lee was seen in the grocery store the
other day and he had a market basket full of
Yogurt. Harry Lee said, "It makes a quick meal
when you don't have time to cook".
Harry Lee was being brave, I think. If he had
been truthful he would have just admitted that he
didn't know how to cook and had to rely on
Yogurt, since it was so cheap (just like Harry

Brother Will had this to say last week in his

"It looks like Mother Nature is going to
accomplish what TVA could not. The snail darter
(that's a fish) is going the way of the Edsel.
''You remember when that scientist(?) up in
Tennessee got his nose all out of joint because the
monster dam they were building was going to
ruin the home of about 100 snail darters? It
seems that the little buggers were almost extinct

all gone from this earth. Heavens to Betsy.
"Well, in spite of science, ecology, birth

It's those snail darters, Will. They are trying ,
to tell us they have taken a fatal case of nausea

talking about.

Two magazines I received this week really
put the flame of hope to burning in my chest.
First, there was Newsweek, which had a long
article documenting the claim that America is
now' turning conservative. After two decades
of being on the downhill wet clay hill toward
liberalism, the little people of the nation have
finally convinced our leaders that a modicum of
conservatism is needed to cause our nation to
The other magazine, put out by Exxon, took
a substantial crack at the environmentalists.
For years, now, the environmentalists have
claimed that a drop of oil dropped on the ground
or in the water is going to make our earth sterile.
Exxon's magazine documents the hundreds
of tankers which were sunk off our shores (one of
them off the shore of Port St. Joe) during World
War II by German submarines. The magazine
goes into detail to show how the environment is
flourishing in the areas where the tankers were
sunk, spilling all their oil in the ocean and on the

'Superintendent of Schools,
"*B Waller Wilder presented a
program to the Kiwanis Club
at their meeting Tuesday,
showing a film strip which
explained the new state man-
dated Florida Statewide As-
sessment of pupils.
The title of the filmstrip was
"Florida Statewide Assess-
ment, Who Needs It".
The reason for the new
testing program, now being
carried out throughout all
schools in Florida was des-
cribed by the narrator as
being necessary in order to
assure that students will be
ready to go on to college or
hold a job. The program
pointed out that 23 percent of
students graduating from high
school cannot read, write or
manage simple arithmetic.
"The test was created to
find the students who cannot
function in the basic subjects
and provide remedial instruc-
tion for those who need it.
The testing program is done
in the third, fifth, eighth and
11th grades.
Results from the tests are
furnished to the teacher, par-
ents and principal of the
student involved.
Superintendent Wilder poin-
ted out that this was the first
program of this type in tle
United States and may be-
come a pattern for the nation
to follow.

Clair into its membership.
Guests were John Clenney
and Key Clubbers, Teresa

which had been framed in 1977
and two early maps by John
Lee Williams and H. L. Pow
ell, respectively, had been
hung in the multi-purpose

usually planted in October and
November. Most other varie-

The Easter lily is also a
common bulb which can be
planted in November and ex-
pected to flower mainly in
April, May and June.
Another excellent bulb for,
the home garden is the gladio-
lus. In southern Florida, the
corms are planted from Sep-
tember through February. In
northern Florida delay plant-
ing until January or Feb-

ruary. About three months
after planting you will be re-
warded with a beautiful mass
of color.
Amaryllis bulbs can also be
planted in the winter. Many
varieties are available in
colors from white to dark red
and in striped colors. Planting
bulbs at several weeks inter-
vals from November to Feb-
ruary, will give a succession
of bloom from spring to sum-


If you want to try to grow
tulips or hyacinths, they will
need a cold-treatment. Bulbs
should be stored in a refriger-
ator (not a freezer) for about
60 days at 40 degrees or 120
days at 50 degrees. Plant
bulbs immediately after the
cold treatment. Delay will
result in poor flowerinh.

-Lawrence Burkett and Tommy Anderson, left to right,
had a tall tale to tell about this 24 pound sturgeon they
brought in from the River Friday. They both said the big fish
jumped in the boat. Sounds like a fishy tale to us.

Roscoe Lynch, right, and his brother,
Mark, were the first nimrods of the hunting
season to bring a deer by The Star office to
show it off. Roscoe shot the seven-pointer on

the Tyndall Reservation early Saturday
morning, the first day of the season.
-Star photo

Chris King killed this fine buck on the
first day of the season, up near Tallahassee.
The buck has a fine set of antlers which will

look good on the wall and will probably be the
topic of many tales in the future. -Star phdto

travelled 249 yards over the
football field and collected 38

Port St. Joe's Sharks closed

especially in the first half.
The Sharks played the Ti-
gers a whale of a defensive
game in the first half, holding
the explosive Tigers to 14
The Tigers, collected their
first half scores in the first
.quarter. On their first drive,
the Tigers drove from their
one yard line, where Rick
Taylor had placed a Shark
punt, the length of the field in
15 plays to score on a four yard
pass from Steve Bailey to Don'
Harbin in the end zone, Fer-
nando Jackson's kick for the
extra point was good.
The Sharks thought they
would surprise the Tigers
when they got the ball after
the kick, on their own 28 yard
line. Rick Taylor rolled out to
toss a pass to Duane McFar-
land, rather than plow ahead
for, four yards in a cloud of
dust. The trouble was, that
.Curt Garrett was roaming in
that vicinity and leaped in
front of McFarland to inter-
cept the aerial and romp into
the end zone untouched for a
cheap touchdown. Jackson
again put the extra point
attempt through the uprights.
The Sharks blanked the
Tigers during the entire sec-
ond period.
The Sharks were just'unable
to get a drive going. Every
time they would make a good
gain, a penalty would nullify
it. Just before the half, Keith
Neel took a flare pass for a 15
yard gain, but a clip brought it
back. Duane McFarland then
came around the opposite end
for 141 yards and Neel spurt-
ed through the line for four,
only to have the half end on a
desperation pass for the end
The Sharks were still in the-
game when the second half
started and the fans had
visions of the second half
performance of the week be-
fore in their minds. The, Tigers
quickly put the damper on
such hopes when Steve Whit-
field uncorked a fine 46 yard
run on, the second, play of the
half to score for the Tigers.
Jackson missed his only extra
point kick of the night.
The Tigers scored again in
the third period, with 2:53
remaining in the period, when
Whitfield again ran over from
the 15 yard line and Jackson
kicked the extra point to give

The Tigers again opened a
period-the fourth-with a
score when Jackson put the
last points on the board for his
team with a nine yard run,
then kicked the extra point.
But with a 34-0 deficit, the
Sharks still didn't .lay down
and quit. They still put on the
