Engineering Firm Told to

Pr ceed with Plant Study

The City Commission told
the engineering firm of Rus-
sell and Axon.Tuesday night,
to go to work on securing
funds for and preparing a 201
report for the Federal Govern-
ment on the operation oft
Wastewater Treatment Plant
here in the City.
_., The Commission has select-
ed the engineering firm from a
group of 20 firms which ap-
plied for the job to do the work
of making the' report. The
report will consist of an exam-
ination of several operations
at the plant and making
recommendations, if any are
'needed, on how the efficiency
of the plant can be improved.
SPresently, the plant is oper-
ating under state and federal
guidelines, but, since it is a
unique operation in waste
disposal, the federal people
want another study made to
see if the plant is doing all it
can do.
The study is being made as a
requisite of the federal gov-
ernment to finally releasing a
promised grant for $3.6 mil-
lion, which was received re-
cently by the City.
David Scott, a representa-
tive from the firm's Tallahas-
see office, was present at the
meeting Tuesday night to sign
the contract.
In a related matter, the
Commission voted to purchase
S-$4,000 worth of stainless-steel
to repair some of the aerators
in the treatment 'plant settling
basin. The aerators, which
carry 150 horsepower motors,
are showing signs of metal
fatigue for the second time,
since going into operation
some four years ago.
Bob Simon, plant manager
.reported to the Commission
that, in his opinion, the aera-
tors, Which are- the floating
type, are over-powered, which
results in their "shaking to
pieces", He pointed out that
although the aerators are built
by a reputable firm, no manu-
facturer, as a .regular thing,
manufactures floating aera-
tors with more than 100 horse-
,. This is the second time the
aerators., have shown metal
fatigue and been repaired.
Simon said welds on the 20 ton
structures have come apart-
from the constant vibration.
When the machines gave
trouble before, the manufac-
turer recommended and help-I
ed with the expense of replac-
ing some of the steel plates
with thicker plates. Now,,
these are beginning to crack.
This is one of the areas the
new engineering firm will look:
The Commission gave ord-
ers Tuesday night to resume
dog catching operations.
Even the Wastewater Treat-
ment plant with its problems,
over the past few years has
not given the Board the head-
aches which roaming dogs in
the City have given in the past
several months.
Recently, the dog catching
truck was involved in an
accident and destroyed. A
second truck is now ready for
service and the street people
were given orders to begin
pick up of roaming dogs
Commissioner James B.
Roberts said. "I would be in
favor of taking all our forces,
except those. needed to man
the garbage truck and pick up
every loose dog we could get in
the next few days."
At any rate, the service
should be in full swing today
with dogs being picked up if
they are found on the streets.
A dance caused the City
Commission to make a deci-
sion Tuesday night.
County Recreation Director
John Clenney came before the
Commission and asked who

ter. "If I am charged with the

responsibility of the building
and the program, I should
have some control over the

School Board Sets Public Hearing

to Discuss Report of Special Master

The Gulf County School
Board set their public hearing
to discuss the recent report of
the Special Master for Thurs-
,day, December 15 at 5:00
p.m., in their regular meeting.
.Tuesday night
According to Supeiinten-
, dent Walter Wilder, the Board
'-will conduct the hearing in
*their meeting room at the
Court House, to take the next
Step outlined in the bargaining
Process, to hear arguments
-regarding differences in sal-
aries and insurance between
the Board and the Gulf County
Classroom Teachers Associa-
. tion.

The Special Master ruled
recently on the negotiating
impasse between the Board-
and the. teachers that the
Board should give a salary
increase of three percent. The
report stated that it was
the opinion of the Special
Master that this was the
largest salary increase the
Board could finance at this.
time. The Special Master also
inserted a paragraph into his
report that salary negotiations
should be re-opened later in
the year to see if more salary
increase could be given. This
was reason for rejection of the
report by the Board.

The report also recommen-
ded that the Board should pay
$11:00 toward health insurance
for the teachers. This was
reason for rejection by 'the
teachers. They were asking
for $14.00.
In other action, the Board
changed the school calendar
Tuesday night. The Board
removed one of the Spring
holiday off-days and will allow
the students and teachers to
be off on Monday, January 2.
In other changes, the Board
also agreed to hire Mrs. Diane
Lay Christo as a science

teacher in the Wewahitchka�
High School to replace Doug
Kent, who has resigned.
Superintendent Wilder an-'
nounced Tuesday that he was
expecting the results of Gulf
County's literacy tests either
this week or next. "When they
are received, it will take a few
days to digest their results"',
Wilder said.,
The Superintendent pointed'
out that if the results come in

Marijuana Smugglers,-All

Enter Guilty Pleas Monday

Of the 16 people arrested in
Gulf County for smuggling in
about three tons of marijuana
last July, all have either been
tried or entered guilty pleas
now, with the exception of one.
' Eleven of the men walked
up to the bench of Judge Larry
G. Smith Monday just before
they were to go on trial, and
entered pleas of guilty. A jury
had already been selected and
the trial was about to begin,
when the 11 entered their
Making the plea were
James Ray Morgan, 29,
Wrightsville Beach, N. C.;
Marcus James Renfro, of
Orangeburg, S.C.; Robert Lee
Bales, 28, Lithonia, Ga.; John
Mitchell Kerce, 28, Columbia,
S.C.; Russell Johnson Thom-
as, III, 23, Fort Lauderdale;
Paul David McCann, 23, Okla-
homa City, Okla.; Daniel Cur-
rie, 25, Albuquerque, N.M.;
Martin James Laurich, 34,
Atlanta, Ga.; Lexington Dun-
lap, 26, Brandon; William
Baron Stronacy, III, 23,
Boone, N.C.; and Terrell Cecil
Greene, 24, Marietta, Ga.

Another defendant schedul-
ed to face the court Monday,
David Benton Linhart, 29, of
St. Petersburg, failed to show
up for the trial. Judge Smith
issued a capias for his arrest.
Another defendant, Gary Grif-
fin, is still at large.
Three more of the defend-
ants, Thomas Henry Jones,
Jr., 23, Columbia, S.C.; Lau-
rich Rhem Welsh and James
Elwood Welsh, also of Colum-
bia had already entered guilty
All the guilty pleas were for
charges of importation and
possession of marijuana. Two
of the men were also charged
with carrying a firearm in the
smuggling operation.
Local, state and federal law
enforcement agencies arrest-
ed 11 of the defendants in a
caravan of trucks and vans
near Cypress Creek in the
early morning hours on July
21 as they were transporting
the illegal weed out of the
county. The lawmen had ear-
lier watched from the woods
as the marijuana was off-
loaded from fishing boats in

the Gulf County ..Canal at the
old dynamite docks near
White 'City. The marijuana
had been brought to this area
from Vera Cruz, Mexico on a
sailboat which was later con-
fiscated at Panama City. The
marijuana was transferred to
the smaller fishing boats at St.
Joseph's Peninsula near the

"Shark hole".
Judge Smith ordered a pre-
sentence investigation for
each of the defendants. Al-
though each defendant faces a
possible five years in prison
and a $10,000 fine, the penalty
could be reduced by the Judge
after the pre-sentence investi-
gation is completed.

What struck us is whether our

suggesting that the mental health

Rish Propos6s Substantial

Tax Reductions for Elderly

A proposal by Rep. Billy Joe
Rish D-Port St. Joe. that
would give substantial tax
breaks to the elderly, blind
and permanently disabled
passed its first hurdle recently
when it was approved by the
House Judiciary Committee.
The bill, introduced by the
Port St. Joe Democrat, calls
for an amendment to the State
Constitution exempting home-
steads owned by citizens who
are blind, permanently dis-
abled, or age 65 or more, fitom
ad valorem taxes levied by
school districts. The loss to
the school districts would be

made up from general reve-
nue at the state level. The bill
now goes to the House Com-
mittee on Finafice and Taxa-
tion. If passed by. the full
Legislature, the proposal
would be placed on the general
ballot in november, 1978 for
voter approval.
Rish was pleased by the
Judiciary Committee action.
"Of all the people in the state,
these are the ones who suffer
most from Florida's repres-
sive.property tax system," he
said. "They have made great
contributions to our society in
the past, and they continue to

do so. Now that they are on
fixed incomes, they deserve a
break. I think it's time to give
it to them."
Rish said he is hopeful the
fullLegislature will pass the
measure "so the people will
have a say in this matter."
"This is a constitutional
amendment on a very impor-
tant issue," he-said. "I would
hope the Legislature would
feel an obligation to give the
citizens of Florida a chance to
express their approval."

The Star Makes Great
Christmas Gifts!

Joe or does it mean that we are not as far behind
here on the edge of the Bay as we think we are?
I had to put this paragraph in the paper to
make Roy Gibson feel better. He is one of the
Gators who is still commiserating over the loss
of the Gators to Florida State Saturday.

The whole community was concerned last
week when it was learned that one of our veteran
doctors, Dr. Wayne Hendrix had been the victim
of a heart attack. Even though he is recovering
well at this time, it was still a stunning blow to
hear of his illness. Doctors are supposed to be
above getting ill or tired; or so we think.
I remember a few months 'bk,. when both
our veteran doctors, both named Hfendrix, began
to slow down in their practices, claiming that
their health wasn't in the best of repair and they
were no longer able to go day and night.
Some of our people didn't believe it. One of
the things one could hear, when this subject
came up for discussion was, "They've made all
the money they want, now they will just coast
I never did subscribe to this thinking. Even if
it were true, doesn't everybody slow down. at
some time in their lives, whether it is because
they have to or because they no longer have to
work as hard as they once did?
All of our doctors here in Port St. Joe
perform an adequate medical service for us. We
have nothing to complain about. Our two
veterans have been at it for a number of years
now, and both have health problems. It's too bad
that-Dr. Wayne Hendrix had to prove their point
by having his heart attack.
We're all concerned about the good doctor
and hope he has a speedy recovery and gets back
into the harness very soon.
He's needed here, even though he can no
longer answer the call as long and as often as he
once did.

Dr. Wayne's daughter, Becky, works for
President Carter up in Washington, D.C. When
we get together at times, we can have some
lively conversations about the president. Natur-
ally, the good doctor is a supporter of the
I have been critical, at times, of the
President, and that's my privilege, just as it is
the privilege of anyone to agree or disagree with

'I .U eil k, I saithe President on a newscast
and he was attending a reception at the White
House honoring the motion picture industry. The
President made the statement, "All much of the
world knows about America is what they see in
the movies".
I have to agree with the President but wish it
wasn't so. If we are judged by some of our recent
movies, we are not setting a very good example
for the world or anyone else.

I see where Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat is catching it from the other Arab nations
for trying to make peace with Israel. Which goes
to prove that the Arabs, on the whole, are not
interested in making peace. They want to fight.
I guess Anwar is going to have to write a
letter to Dear Abby. When Abby gets a letter
from someone who is worried about how their
actions or statements will affect their friends,
Abby advises that a friend who will get mad over
what someone does or says isn't a friend worth
That's good advice, Anwar.

"Hamilton Jordan's office. Hi. I am
doing real good. Real good."
The speaker is Port St. Joe's Becky
Hendrix, who at age 27 is assistant and
girl Friday to the-man'who is generally
conceded to be the most influential man
in the White House next to the President.
Miss Hendrix sits in an office just
behind the west wing reception area, just
across the hall from Hamilton Jordan's
office and just a peanut's thrqw down the
hall from the oval office of the President.
"Basically what I wind up doing most
of the time is to say no to people," she
explains modestly as she finishes calling
Wake Forest College to say that unfortu-
nately Mr. Jordan cannot write a paper
for the school's magazine on the subject
of the abstract of the political man.
She really sounded sorry, even though
the request was fairly preposterous.
A previous call had been from a

Adds Charm to Hamilton Jordan's Office

political correspondent from a national
news magazine requesting time with her
boss. Soon.
A White House staffer says, "Even
when she says Hi on the phone it makes
you feel good."
But there is more to Becky Hendrix
than a warm telephone personality.
"She has a great ability to make things
clear to people, to coordinate things, and
to keep order in the middle of chaos," her
co-worker explained trying to define her
key role in the White House scheme of
Rebecca Hendrix is the oldest of the
three daughters of Dr. Wayne Hendrix, a
general practitioner in Port St. Joe,
where she grew tip.
Another daughter, Judy, age 23, is
temporarily living in Jacksonville while
on a training program fot the Internal
Revenue Service.
Becky Hendrix majored in political
science at Agnes Scott College in

Decatur, Ga., where there was a gover-
nor named Jimmy Carter.
She graduated and headed right for
Washington to work for Sen. Lawton
Chiles on an internship, determined to
make herself so useful that when the
summer job ended there would be a place
on the staff for her.
Her very first day on the job was also
the first day of the Democratic National
Convention in Miami, for which Chiles
was one of the hosts.
"There was hardly anyone in the
office. By the time they got back from
Miami, I was pretty well established,"
she said.
By fall, she was indeed a full-fledged
staff member as a receptionist, which
she describes as one of the best jobs in
Washington, "Receptionists learn every-
thing that is going on."
In two years she decided she wanted to
try something else and went bach to her
parents home to think about it.

She went on the campaign staff of
Richard Stone, who was running for the
Senate seat that he won. She worked and
lived in Miami and then moved to Stone's
Tallahassee office after the election,
where she stayed for 15 months.
In the fall of 1975, there was a
Democratic State Convention in Orlando.
Becky Hendrix wanted to go as a
delegate from Gulf County. That was fine
with everybody there. No one else
wanted to go anyway.
At the convention, Jimmy Carter won
big on the straw ballot for president, and
the delegate from Gulf County met some
-folks from Georgia, Jody Powell, Hamil-
ton Jordan and Jimmy Carter.
"They were really doing their home-
work," says the tall and shapely White
House staffer. She had two calls when she
returned to Stone's Tallahassee office
asking her to sign on as a volunteer
She did, working on her own time after
her regular office hours. She loved it.

Then came Carter's key Florida primary
when, "And after that, everyone left
Florida for other, primaries."
Becky Hendrix decided to follow
through with Carter, move to Atlanta,
where she could stay with friends and
became a full-time volunteer worker.
She was responsible for distributing
credentials for the Democratic National
Convention in New York, which she
describes as "the worst job I ever had."
ShW handled it deftly enough to become
Carter's "Ticket person" for all events.
"But I put my foot down when they
threatened to put me in charge of tickets
for the inauguration," says -Miss
Her favorite White House story on
herself is told with brown eyes shining.
She was on the phone one day in her
White House office doing what she
describes as "Going on and on in my own-
little world" when she felt a hand on her
She finally glanced around and when

she realized it was the President
dropping in for a call, she hung up cold on
the caller, much to her later embar-
"What I am trying to say is that it
never ceases to be exciting being in the
'White House," she explained in her more
naturally calm manner.
When for all her ease and competency
her job cannot be the easiest in the
White House. She has at least a 12-hour
day and at least a six-day week and a
boss who is definitely not a telephone
type, which means that people come
back, back and back at her to check how
things are going for them.
Also, some say that Hamilton Jordan
has male chauvinist pig characteristics.
It this true? "Well", grins Becky
Hendrix, "he is a man".
"But," she adds diplomatically, "Iam
not a woman's libber. So it works out just

SAmbulance Squad Hones

hIts Rescue Techniques

This past weekend was a
busy one for members of6the
St. Joe and Wewa Volunteer
Ambulance Squads. Members'
Sof the squads spent the week-
' -bnd learning the .newest
approved techniques of han-
dling patients involved in auto
accidents and other con-
litruction type accidents.
- The instructor for the two
day affair was Gary Briese of
Orlando who is an. EMT
.Specialist, along with being
.4he Executive Director of the
! lorida Chapter of the Ameri-
Z'.rn College of Emergency
�. hysicians.
- The main emphasis of the 16

hour training was aimed at
handling patients with neck or
back injuries. Techniques
were practiced in stabilizing
and removing patients from
wrecked autos as quickly as
possible, without causing
further injury to the patient.
Half of Sunday's session was
spent practicing with tools and
equipment to make the task of
removing a patient from an
auto practical and.'safe for
both patient and squad mem-
ber. The women of the St. Joe
Squad found that- they :too
could handle the equipment
needed to cut the top off of a
car or open a jammed door.'
The squad would like to

thank Dr. Vazquez for relin-
quishing some of his time to
participate in the exercises.
We would also like to thank M.
G. Lewis for allowing us the
*use of the vehicles to practice
I would also like to take this
opportunity as squad chief of
the St. Joe Volunteer Ambu-
lance Squad to say that it is a
real pleasure to work with so
many dedicated people, who
are willing to give up part of
their weekend in order to be
better -able to serve you, the
people of Gulf County. i

Manager for St. Vincent Is-
land National Wildlife Refuge
told the Rotary Club last
Thursday that it appears as if
the government will soon
make some money available
to make improvements to .the
Refuge. "There has been no-
thing done to St. Vincent's

He emphasized that im-

would be preserved as nearly
as it is now as possible, "This
island is maintained by the
Wildlife Service as a sanctu-

.cans, perigren falcon, and
-other species of endangered
.naigratory and native birds

postponement is probable be-
cause the first game .is with

Tuesday night of next week
and will travel to Chattahoo-
chee on Thursday night.

The game with Blountstown,
which was scheduled for Fri-
day night, was officially can-
-celled Tuesday and re-sche-
duled for January 12. accord-
ing to Coach Lane. The other
game with Bountstown. sche-
duled for January 3, has also
been changed to Port St. Joe.
This means, that both the
January 3 and 12 games will
be played here in Port St. Joe.

Coach William Lane has
good things to say about the
boys playing on this year's
squad' "They are all fine
young men", Lane said. "We'
just hope they come through
on the basketball court and
give us a good season".
Coach Lane said that of the
eleven men being carried on
the varsity squad this year,
three have returned from last
year's team. These are Rob-
ert Thomas, Terry Larry. and
Cleveland Riley. Thomas is a
6'1" Senior who weighs 165
pounds. Larry is the "runt" of
the squad at 5'812" but he

played some very fine basket-
ball last year and is expected
to be a valuable member of
the squad this year. Riley, at
5'11". also bolstered the Shark
attack last year and is expect-
ed to be one of the mainstays
this year. Thomas was one of
the squad's better shooters
last year.
Other members of the squad
this year include: Chuck Pol-
lock. a 6'1'2�" junior and his
big brother, Chip Pollock, a
senior at 5'1112", junior Tony
Larry, 5'8", senior Kelvin
Rouse, 5'944", junior Kevin

tery. That's when you try to start your car-and
nothing happens.
NAPA can help with that problem, because
your NAPA store is now running a special on
booster cables. Cables are available in 8-foot/
8-gauge and 12-foot/6-gauge sizes.
These tough cables have positive-grip,
color-coded handles and solid copper conduc-
tors to assure quick starts time after time. And
NAPA Belden cables remain flexible even in
sub-zero temperatures.
And while you're at your NAPA store, ask
about our sale on heavy duty outdoor exten-
sion cords and Cordlites for your garage or
Check NAPA's specials. And more power
to you.
