OAK GROVE WATER
Clerk Mike Wright told the
Commission Tuesday night
that building inspector E. F.
Gunn has alerted him that the
Oak Grove Water and Sewer
District construction would be
completed within three to six
weeks and the customers will
be ready to receive water and
sewer services. The services
are to be provided the com-
munity through their distribu-
tion and collection system at a


ABE MILLER
Funeral services were held
Tuesday at 2:00 P.M., E.S.T.,
in the First United Methodist
Church of Port St. Joe, with
Elder James Copeland of the
Mormon Church officiating.
Burial was in the Millville
Cemetery in Panama City.
Honorary pallbearers were
area Jaycees.
St. Clair Funeral Home of
Port St. Joe was in charge of
all arrangements.


hulk rate Wright said that the
pending completion of the'
facilities makes it necessary I
for the City and the County
governments to get together
and work out the final details
of their agreement to serve
and purchase the services,
and come to an agreement
which can 'be put down on:
paper
The City has agreed to:
furnish' water and sewer ser-
vices to .the enclave. at the
same piiice charged Port St.
Joe uses plus a .20 percent '
surcharge made to all out of,
city customers and 'a service
charge for maintaining .the
system, billing, reading' met-
ers. collecting bills, etc. The
total City charge against the
.system would be approxi-
mately $7.00 per customer and
the County would add from
$5.00 to $6.00 per month to pay,
off the bonds which were sold
to finance the construction.
In the agreement already
negotiated, the City would
furnish treated water, collect
and treat sewage anddo all
routine maintenance. All ma-
jor maintenance would be
taken care of by the County;
One of the reasons for the
conference is to define what
will be "major maintenance"
and what will be "routine
maintenance".
City Water Superintendent
G. L. Scott advised the Com-
mission that the main water
meter for the new system has
not arrived yet, but is due in a
short time. The main water
meter will belong to the City
and will measure all water
sent to the Oak Grove system.
AMEND ORDINANCE
The Commission took an-
other positive step toward
aiding the roaming dog ordin-
ance Tuesday night, by chang-
ing the present ordinance 'to
make it more effective.
The main change was that
owners of roaming dogs are to
be assessed $5.00 in charges if
their dog is picked up, with a
$2.00 per day charge levied
after the first day of incarcer-
ation. Those who ignore the
ordinance or interfere in the
application of the ordinance in
any way are subject to a
penalty of 60 days in jail or a


fine of $500.00.
An animal running at large
is defined by the ordinance to
be any animal "found outside
an enclosure and is not under
the direct control of the owner
or keeper thereof.."
After an animal has been
picked up. Police shall make
an attempt to locate the
owner If he cannot, a descrip-
tion will be posted in the City
'Hall for a period of five days.
After that time, the animal
may be either sold or destroy-
ed by the Police Department.
BUILDING ORDINANCE
Another ordinance up for
investigation is the law which
governs, the City's actions in
dealing., with old abandoned
buildings.
At the last meeting, a ques-
tion was. raised as to whether
or not the City has the pdwer
to condemn and remove any .
unsafe building within the City
limits. An ordinance requiring
the opinion of an unbiased
committee as to whether or
not a burned building :was
beyond repair was construed-
at the last meeting to also
apply to a run-down and
unsafe building.
Attorney William J. Rish
told the Board Tuesday that
further search of the City's
ordinances revealed that the
City has the power to condemn
and cause any unsafe building
to be removed.
The question was raised at
the last meeting when the
state of several buildings was
brought to the attention of the
Commission and the Board
asked for legal guidance in the
matter.
ZONING VARIANCE
The Commission had a r6-
quest on its agenda for a,
zoning variance from Mary
Linda Butts. Mrs. Butts wants
to put a beauty parlor in her
home at 2116 Long Avenue.
The Commission instructed
Clerk Mike Wright to advise
Mrs. Butts that a public notice
would have to be published
advertising her intent to any
interested party, at Mrs.
Butts' expense. If there are
objections, the Commission
will automatically turn down
the request.

No Good Reason


SThere was no good valid reason
Tor the United States and President
Carter being embarrassed in Poland
last week. The misinterpretations
made by the President's interpreter
were inexcusable. Something so
delicate should have been prepared
for properly before the plane ever
left home.
The interpreter was scored by
the 'state department for relaying
Carter's words in a coloquial Polish
in a way whichin no way resembled
the tone of the President's words.
His interpretations" were probably
much like saying a North Florida
Cracker is speaking English. He
isn't. Neither does any other re-
gional native of the United States.

preter took the lumps for the

before he was sent on the trip. A dry
run of the speech at home should
have been in order.
We have enough enemies abroad
without cultivating more through
wrong interpretations of statements
made by the President.
It would seem the prudent thing
to do for the State Department to
check the knowledge of the other
interpreters on the trip before they
do their thing in the other nations to
be visited. Or possibly the President
'could do like many newspapers do
and issue a statement prior to his
speech to the effect that, "The words

By WOODY JONES
School just started back last
Tuesday, so for the lack of
some school news, this week
I'm going to write about what
I have to put up with each
week to get this column in The
Star.
The main problem is that
most people who read the
paper never read this column
(except for a few relatives);
This is mainly because the
exciting title-News from the
High School-lulls them to
sleep before they can get to
the good stuff. Have you ever
noticed that I don't get my

column? Well, Mr. Ramsey

a lot bigger type, too. Mr.

column on the second page:
most of the time you have to
hunt through want-ads for

The second big problem
comes from people at school.
Almost every comment I get is
because of something mis-

about wrestling or didn't put
something in the paper. Well,

all of that is Shirley Ramsey's
fault because she sets the type
and is therefore responsible
for all errors. Any complaints
of that nature can be called in
at 229-6343.
The last, but not the least
aggravation is the "cute"
little remarks that I get all the
time: "I didn't know you were
related to Mr. Ramsey", "You
don't even look like Willie",
"Did you get the Stretch Arm-


strong or the Weebles Play-
house?" and finally, one of my
favorites, "That's a really ori-

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


It's been interesting, these past couple of
weeks, reading the stories in the Tallahassee
Democrat about their change from an. afternoon
to a morning paper this past Tuesday. They have
come up with some good reasons for making the
change and I can agree with them. Most of the
news happens during the day or early evening
and the paper has all night to get it into print and
delivered to the customer's door. If the paper
delivers during the afternoon, their news is 12
hours older than it S in any othef ~dbiition'.7
This isn't a very good situation for a newspaper,
which lives or dies on its news. If the customer
buys for the news content, he also has the
advertising, which is the paper's lifeblood. If a
customer doesn't buy a paper for the news, the
advertiser spends his money in some other way.
It wasn't too hard a decision to make, I
would think.

One of the more interesting articles on the
subject was written in last Friday's edition by
Bill McGrotha, the sports editor. McGrotha
recalled back to 1953, when he went to work
for the paper and how things were then. A 10 man
news staff and no air conditioning in the building
makes for an operation totally foreign to today's

His life for us that makes the
difference. (John 19:30) The
28th chapter of Matthew tells
of His resurrection. Here we
can see and understand His
love for us. We can not just
take a part of His life. We
must take it all from Christ-

and resurrection). Take Jesus
out of the cradle and let Him
grow up, all the way to Cal-

No One Knows Where The Wild Geese


Have Gone. ..But They've Disappeared


SOUTHPORT-It has been
almost 20 years since Florida
sportsmen have enjoyed a
chance to go goose hunting. In
1958 the season was discon-
tinued because of the low
number of geese left in the fly-
way. Since that time the
Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission has
been actively carrying out a
plan to re-establish geese in
Florida and to ultimately have
another goose season.
Throughout the past 10
years over 1.427 geese, sub-
species of the Canadian honk-
er. have-been moved to Flor-
ida. Flocks of these birds have
been established in quiet
ponds all over northern Flor-
ida. Identical to the "honker"
in size and appearance these
geese are different in that they
have no migratory instinct.
They will establish a perma-
nent residence in the area they


are placed. Ideally, over a
period of years these flocks
would grow. intermingle and,
hopefully, re-populate Florida
with wild geese.
Something over four years
ago 20 such birds were placed
in northern Bay Couinty. In
1975 there were five left. Last
week the last ones were
gone. .victim of a game
thief. Where did these birds
go? Some fell prey to preda-
tors or sickness, but the most
were victims of ignorance or
thoughtlessness. The two or
three percent of folks who
don't care about the rest of us
harvested them. Some didn't
know it was illegal to take a
goose. One or two were taken
by people who didn't know
what they were. The majority
were taken by those who
"wanted a goose".
The end result is the same
whatever the excuse. The rest


of us have to wait a lot longer
for our chance at a goose
season. True. this was just one
flock, but similar stories
come in from other planting
areas, too. The solution is not
in more wildlife officers...
there could never be enough
for that. The answer is in each
one of us and when we stop
tolerating the guy that breaks
the game laws of our sport.
When we stop making a local
hero out of the guy that steals
a deer-or goose-from our
child or grandchild. It will
stop when we let our courts
and state attorneys know that
we don't like thesetype activi-

give our youngsters that thrill
that comes out of seeing a

cold. blustery day or thrill to
the sounds of a flock of geese

manner of printing the news.
McGrotha's recalling the old days of the
Democrat made me think of the old days of The
Star. I took over here in November of 1952 and
things were different then.
McGrotha moaned over the passing of the
"newspaper smell" in the Democrat. There was
nothing quite like the smell of the old letter press
days. The paper, the ink,. the solvents and the
melting metal all lent to an aroma which all but
hypnotized old timers in the business and did as
much as anything to keep them in it.
We still have the "aroma" here at The Star
in our back shop. The new-used offset webb press
.uses ink and uses nevrsprint, so we get some of
the old smell from it. We still use some hot type
in our commercial printing operation, so we get
that addition to this special aroma. Occasionally
we get a retired printer by The Star who will go
in back and stand around the Linotype machine
and smell the hot metal in its pot.
Aside from that, everything is different.
Back in 1952, when we first took over The
Star, we had to go out back occasionally and get
a chunk or two of wood to toss in the old wood
heater which tried to keep the place warm
during cold weather. Luckily, it didn't snow
during the days of the wood heater. Then we
graduated to an oil circulating heater which we
could leave running all the time to keep the chill
off the place. Keeping off the chill was a "must"
around all the old heavy cast iron machines we
formerly used to print with. Now everything is
made of steel or aluminum.
Now the place is kept warm by gas heaters
and air conditioned in the summer-time.

Too, back in 1952 and a few years that
followed, number two son, Willie, used to curl up
on an old cane bottom chair behind the Linotype
and go to sleep while I set up type. Those days he
could fit on the top of an old cane bottom chair.
Today, he does all the camera work, a major
portion of the commercial printing and runs the
webb offset press, in addition to a multitude of
other duties.
Today, his bottom side will barely fit on the
bottom of an old cane bottom chair. The rest of
him is over six feet tall and over 200 pounds, so
sleeping on the same chair is out of the question.

Back in 1952, we worked like trojans to get an
eight page paper out. We worked way into the
night on Wednesday night in order to make the
mail on Thursday morning. We had to lift heavy
"forms" onto the old flat bed press which may
run after it was loaded and it may not. Those
"forms" weighed about 100 pounds per page: so
the old days had its share of. sheer hard work.
Today, we get out a 12 page paper in about
two working days, and only an equipment
breakdown will make us much after dark on
press day.
Now, we wear better clothes to work in
because there isn't as much danger of having
them messed up with' ink, grease, oil, solvents,
etc.
Things have changed. I don't know if we
could keep up today if they hadn't. One thing for
sure, our poor old body probably couldn't take
what it used to have to under the old days.
I'm glad they're gone.

Old Church
With the approval and co-
operation of the Port St. Joe
Garden Club, the St. Joseph
Historical Society will present
to the club at the time of their
next .regular meeting,
January 12 (the second Thurs-
day), a beautiful historical
placque which will be
attached to the front of the
present Garden Center, dedi-
cating this building as the
oldest church building still
standing in the city.
St. Joseph's Catholic Church
was constructed in 1925 and
served the Catholic population
of this area until 1959 when
they moved into their present
building. The old building was
later sold to the Garden Club
of Port St. Joe and has since
served as the garden center.
The unveiling and dedication'
speech will be made by
George Tapper, in whose
parents' home the first
regular mass was held in 1920.
A covered dish luncheon will
be served at 12:30. All society
members are invited to bring
a dish and enjoy a period of
fellowship with members of
the Garden Club. The dedi-
cation ceremony will begin at
1:45 P.M.

Maria", a three-quarter repli-
ca of Columbus' flagship and a
traveling museum afloat ar-
rives at the city dock, spon-
sored by .the Apalachicola
Area Historical Society.
S Since participating in "Op-
Sbration Sail". with the Tall
,- Ships, the."Santa Maria" has
been. on tour, sailing to towns
and cities along the East and
dulf coasts. The 10-man crew,
S which lives on board and sails
'from port to port, conducts
: guided tours while dressed as
soldiers and sailors of Colum-
bus' era.
:: The 90-ton ship was launch-
"",, ed in April;- 1976 at Snug
:.Harbor in-St. Petersburg.
Extensive research in the
archives of Madrid,' Barce-'
S loha, Palos de la Fronteraand
the monastery .of La Rabida in
Spain was done -to apsure
authenticity.
SThe.ship was the firstof the
Tall Ships to pass under New

during "Operation Sail" in
1976. Since then, an average of
S1,500 visitors daily-young.
'and old-have lined up to be
taken back in time and relive
Sthe spirit of 1492.
Patterned from designs of a
replica built by the Spanish
Commission of 1892 to com-

sary of Columbus' voyage,

Mini-Bikes, Go Carts Regulated


Santa Maria, Replica of Columbus'


Flagship, Coming to Area January 11th


The increasingly popular
vehicle called a moped must
obey traffic laws which apply
to bicycles because they are
classified as bicycles.
No drivers's license is re-
quired for moped operators,
but the driver must be at least
15 years of age. The maximum
speed is 25 miles per hour.
Lights and reflectors are
necessary if operated at night.


While not required, helmets
can prevent serious head in-
juries in case of a fall or
collision, according to Beach.

Colonel Beach concluded by
saying, "Early training may
form habits that will help
youngsters respect the need
for rules and regulations that
will carry into later years as
automobile drivers."


The Florida Highway Patrol
this week reminded parents
and riders of Christmas mini-
bikes and go-carts that these
vehicles are regulated the
same as any other motor
vehicle if they are used ort
public roadways, while mo-
peds are classified as bicy-
cles.
Colonel Eldridge Beach, di-
rector of the Patrol said,
"Operators of minibikes and
go-carts must be at least 15
years of age and have a
license. Until the operator
becomes 16 years of age, he
will have a restricted license
requiring daylight operation
and he may not ride a motor
driven bike rated more than
five brake horsepower. :Mini-
bike riders are required to
wear an approved crash hel-
met ard eye protection."
These vehicles are not
recommended for use on pub-
lic roads but if they are used
they must be equipped with
headlights, a tail light, stop
light, horn, rearview mirror
and adequate brakes. As with
all other motor vehicles, they
must have a current, motor
vehicle inspection sticker and
license tag.
When operating on private
property, Beach urged riders
to wear, an approved, crash
helmet and eye protection.

watching.
