Families from Their Homes


S The storm which whipped
up the eastern half of the
United States late last week
stuck land here on the Gulf
Coast, Wednesday night, caus-
y ing high winds and some
damage to this area. The most


damage suffered by the Gulf
County area was from the
aftermath of the storm, how-
ever.
Dumping inches of rain on
the tributaries of the Apala-
chicola River in Alabama and


Georgia, the storm came back
to us early this week and
caused severe flooding along
the Apalachicola, forcing peo-
ple from their homes in the
Wewahitchka and Dalkeith
area.

Flash Fire Wednesday Threatens

Fire threatened the rosin
operation of Sylvachem Cor-
poration last Wednesday af-
ternoon, when a flash fire
whipped through a rosin pump
at the plant.
The fire started at a rosin
pump on the north side of the


plant and raced up a rosin feed
line toward two storage tanks
before it was stopped by quick
action by Sylvachem employ-
ees.
According to a plant spokes-
man, damage was kept to a
minimum.

serve Gulf and Franklin coun-
ties.
McSpadden said he expect-
ed to receive many more
before the survey period is
over. "We need to have an
overwhelming expression of
support and intention to use to
the facility", McSpadden said.
Gulf Coast is planning to
establish a full-time campus
here in Port St. Joe in the
near future if the public
support is there to make the
facility feasible.
All expressions of support
for the college should be
mailed to Gulf Coast Com-
munity College, 5230 W. High-

National Bank was "still a

it wouldn't be strictly impar-

ed the new bank because they
wished to invest in it and felt it
would be a good, sound invest-
ment. Others stated they had
had no problems in meeting
their financial needs with the
present banks but felt another

leading to the Dead Lakes
Dam was under water. Most of
the road on the Cut-off Island
across the Dam was under
water.
SOME ENJOY .
Even with many home and
property owners scurrying to
safety and taking precautions
to prevent damage to their
property, some were enjoying
the high 'water. Fishermen
were out in force, even in the
raw, rainy weather, trying
their luck at the bonanza of
fishing which usually occurs,
when the water rises to flood
stage in these areas.
Tuesday morning, a Star
photographer caught up with a
Sheriff's Department boat,
manned by Deputy Jack Da-
villa, helping people to evac-
uate their homes and making
sure what they left behind was
safe from looters. Deputy
Davilla took our photographer
to the worst flooding areas in
order to get the pictures
shown on this page.
FLOODS EARLY
Flooding in these areas are
usually expected each year,
but they usually come in the
spring when the snows north
of Florida begin to melt and
send their tons of water to-
ward the sea.
The flood this week added to
the usual misery one might
expectt from a flood by coming
during a period of extremely
cold weather for Florida's
Panhandle. As a matter of
fact, weathermen had a pos-
sible snow warning up for the
Panhandle Monday.
50 TO 75 FAMILIES
According to Civil Defense
Director Albert Thames, some
50-75 families were evacuated
from the Cut-off Island area.
"Some left because of flood
waters and others left because
they would be unable to get in
and out", Thames said.
The Civil Defense Director
said that Tuesday afternoon,
the only land out of the water
east of the Red Bull Island
Road was the bridge over the
Dead Lakes. He said that at
least one wash-out had been
reported on the Cut-off Road.
"Others may show up when
the water goes down",
Thames said.
Late Tuesday afternoon, the
water was reported to have
crested and was receding at
Blountstown, 30 miles up river
from the Wewahitchka area.
Before starting down, the
water had risen to a reported
25 plus feet. Flood stage on the
river is 18 feet.
A guage in the Dead Lakes
read 19.4 feet and rising. Flood
stage in the Dead Lakes is 12
feet; indicating that the flood
had nearly reached its crest
Tuesday afternoon.
Damage to personal proper-
ty was estimated at around
$150,000 Tuesday afternoon,
but may go even higher once
the water recedes.

THE STAR. Port St. Joe. Fla. THURSDAY, FEB. 2, 1978


It would appear to us that the
Constitution Revision Commission
Aas just put the kiss of death on
its efforts.
~" The committee has reached a
decision to recommend in the new
i ,document that the elective cabinet
,system of government in Florida
be dissolved and the cabinet be
appointed in the future by the
TGovernor.
It takes no great effort to see
.'.that Florida would then be a state
'.ruled by one man, with only the
-.-Legislature to curb his possible
-:,free-wheeling.
'- Florida's system of govern-
ment, now nearly 100 years old,
rhas been :a model for other states
to copy. It has served us well and





20 Yet

It seems like it was started
only a few years ago, but our St.
Joseph Historical Society is now
20 years old. Mrs. Ralph Swatts
revealed this little tidbit at the
annual dinner meeting of the So-
ciety last Friday night.
The Historical Society is small
in numbers, but they have been a
very active organization over the
.past 20 years and have goaded
-. pany of us into doing. things we
'iould not have thought of by
S ourselves to retain and resurrect
some of the things which have
.iade this part Of the Gulf Coast
S ich in our state's history.
: Outside the confines of Gulf
: county, very few people know that


A Layman's View


has put some diverse thinking into
the operations of all our bureaus
and boards.
If we abolish the Cabinet sys-
tem in Florida, te then adopt the
same type system used in Wash-
ington, where all cabinet offices
are appointed and often given to
inept persons by a President bent
on rewarding his campaign faith-
ful. We think Florida deserves
better. We have had some exper-
ience of professionalism in our
cabinet officers in the past. We
hope this system will continue in
the future.
We feel the' voters will turn
down the revised Constutition in
November, if tfie abolition of the
cabinet remains a part of the new
document.

51'rr,.~,


Port St. Joe is the birthplace of,
Florida's first Constitution. With-
out their efforts, even this auspi-
cious occasion may fade -into his-
tory with only a very few ardent
history buffs aware of our impor-
tant heritage.
We appreciate the Historical
Society, and even though some
chide them at times, what they
'find out about our. past is usually
'important to ouir present and fu-
ture as well as being of extreme
interest. ,

We can t.ke pride in our
heritage here, 'and the Historical
Society keeps reminding us of this
fact.

Bible Notes


Isaiah45:18-19 Job15:2
I Corinthians 15:58
Key Word: Vain
There is a word used
throughout the Bible that God
has very carefully and liber-
ally put there to teach us about
Hirfself. The word is "vain."
Its definition is empty, use-
less. God -uses this word to
contrast the good things oflife
wlth the things that are utterly
useless.
In Isaiah 45:18, God says He
"Created the heavens. .form-
i ~i the earn and made it; He
: thestablished it, He created
Enot in vain". He created it
rit useless but useful.
?Isaiah 45:19 again God says,
.said not unto the seed of
cob, seek ye me in vain."
.his statement is a great
promise from God. If you seek
Sfm you will find Him.
-:.Job 15:2: "Should a wise
mfan utter vain knowledge
...?" Here God is saying a
Godly person should be care-
ful of his speech; not to go
around babbling empty and
useless words. We are respon-
sible for that.
:::-In I Corinthians 15:10, the
apostle Paul says that God's
grace bestowed upon him
~CU." .was not in vain. .' God's


grace is not empty.
In I Corinthians 15:58 Paul
says "...ye know that your
labor is not in vain in the
Lord." When the Christian
labors ".. .in the Lord," it is
full and useful.
Titus 3:9 has a warning for
the Christian, "But avoid fool-
ish questions, and genealogies
and contentions, and strivings
about the law; for they are
unprofitable and vain." Satan
really enjoys it when Chris-
tians get hung up on points of
religious law.
The Christiai is not just to
read the word of God but to
meditate upon it and esta-
blish t in the inner recesses of
his heart.

Dear Wesley,
I 'date' myself by saying I
well remember those good
old times we had back there
with the wooden thread

Thanks so much for bringing
back some wonderful memo-
ries. But with this recall,
much much more flooded
back into crystal focus.
For example. there were

the gun was loaded by
stretching one end of the

secured in the clothes pin,
so when the clothes pin was

hand squeezing the handle,
off flew the rubber band
with a force that stung but

Dear Wesley,

Panic, fret and long

A treat for you is in store
I could not ignore yo
earnest plea
For handy things that cei
to be.
I, not knowing an Edito

It was cast aside and us
no more,
Hidden behind my close
door.
In reminiscing from da
gone by,
I heard your pleading, wi
ful cry.
Little did I know it broui
such joy
Or promoted the growth of
happy boy.
Substitutes are given to t]
generation!
Could this be what is wro
with our restless nation?
Maybe your sad. spirit w

we all were, each situated
behind one of the pine trees
for protection and firing at
one another with our guns...
some finding their mark and
some hitting the trees or
whatever was in the way. It
was wild.
I don't feel I can ever
forget the vantage point in
which I found myself with
respect to Miss Lizzie who
Swas supposed to be on our
side when I looked up and
found her back towards me,


bending slightly around the
tree, just begin to be 'shot
at', so yours truly took care-
ful aim, and let go a
whinger of a shot which hit
its mark square on... and
there was a look of awe, of
surprise, of stinging hurt.
You can bet your boots I
turned and ran like all get
out for I knew if she ever
found out, my bottom would
be mud! And in the interim
there was Hoot Rowan at
which she was aiming,


laughing his sides out. I
doubt until this day if Miss
Lizzie ever knew who got
her that fateful summer
day. Sorry about that, Miss
Lizzie, but it was all in good
clean fun.
Those were the days my
friend and it's so nice to
look back and recall all the
real pleasures we had as
kids in Port St. Joe back
then.

Wooden Spools Recall Memories


Birmingham, Al. hours I spent with the

Dear Wes,
I read with great interest
and humor about your plight
with the wooden thread

It certainly brought back
some fond memories from"
my youth and the joyous


rhe Storms over the past week end, which
un' started here Wednesday night, rocked the
and nation. Snow, ice, below-freezing temperatures
ler- and general misery spurred several letters to
es. the editor over the, week end from people up
in
hes north wishing they were here in Port St. Joe
and other parts of Florida.
People here were complaining, too, until
S someone pointed out that 40 degrees here was
considerably better than the chill factor of 75
degrees below zero experienced by St. Paul,
Minnesota during the last part of last week.
nue The high winds really got to churning
401 here in Port St. Joe last Wednesday, just
about the time we had finished the paper and
were closing up to go home. I took some
no papers to the beach at about 7:45 and the
seas were pounding over Highway 98 at
'. Highland View, much as if a hurricane had
Dur struck. About the only damage we suffered
ase was from some lifted shingles and a TV
antenna or two twisted over.
ir's I saw where the winds got up to 80 miles
per hour in Toronto, Canada, and pedestrians
om on the streets had to hold onto one another to
sed keep from being blown over.
The stories in the papers Thursday and
set Friday kept most people in this area from
complaining about the weather. We had it
lys good.
sh-
I see where the adverse weather has
ght stirred up a new strain of the influenza out in
Wyoming. Last year, we were bombarded
fa with the Hong Kong flu and this year, the
his Russians are the culprit.
I'm wondering if these same strains are
ng called "American flu" in China and Russia.
Are these' strains of flu actually Hong Kong
'il flu and Russian flu, or is our State Depart-
my ment using the names for propaganda
purposes?
or Since the Russian flu seems to be indig-
enous to Wyoming, why isn't it known as the
en Wyoming flu?
I don't mind these illnesses being known
by their present common names, you under-
stand, I was just wondering where the names


gone from St. Joe since 1962
but we still receive and
enjoy The Star. We also
continue to miss our family
and friends still living there.
Best regards for a happy,
healthy 1978.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY


came from.

Another common ailment during this type
weather is bronchitis. Colds, sore throats and
bronchitis are common when the tempera-
tures fall, the winds blow and the ice forms.
I have learned of a sure-fire cure for
bronchitis.
No less an authority than Dr. Irwin
Ziment, of the American Lung Association
says one can cure bronchitis by gargling with
pure hot pepper sauce: that's the same kind
of pepper sauce you put on your turnip /
greens.
Bronchitis is an ailment which prevents
one from talking due to a sore throat. I can't
see how Dr. Ziment can be sure his cure
works. If a person had a perfectly good and
healthy throat and gargled with some genuine
Northwest' Florida pepper sauce, he couldn't
talk, either. He couldn't say whether or not
his bronchitis was cured.
So, who is to say that Dr. Ziment's cure
is effective?

I see in the papers where the United
States will boost its aid to India this year.
The article said the United States has set
aside $90 million for the populous nation.
I'm wondering if this,$90 million in aid is
by way of an apology from President Carter
for leaving his microphone open on his recent
visit to that nation, where some plain talk
was overheard by ears which weren't sup-
posed to hear.- If this is the result of that
little incident, I hope the President checks in
the future to see if the microphone is closed
before indulging in plain talk. I believe in
plain talk, but at $90 million a sentence,
that's getting too expensive.

James Schlesinger, our Energy Secretary .
told some questioning newsmen the Russian
satellite which fell in Canada last week,
emitting atomic radiation, "was not a wea-
pon". Since the device had not been located
at the time of this writing, I'm wondering
how he knew.

a giftL
Gene McDowell, assistant
coach at Florida State Univer-
sity, gave an address to the
football players, their coaches
and guests which was both
humorous and inspiring.
McDowell said he had con-
sidered it an opportunity and a
privilege to play football.


"Football is a tough .game",
he said. "It takes God-given
ability, the consent of your
parents, the guidance of your
coaches and your determina-
.tion to last in this game", he
pointed out.
The speaker said one learns
character, enthusiasm and
how to stay in good physical
condition from playing foot-
ball.
S"One of the.most important
lessons of the game is the
defeat one suffers, especially.
in a bad season. The oqly bad
thing about losing is the
negative thought it sometimes
gives," the speaker said. "The
good thing about losing is the
determination it builds m a
man to try harder the next


time out. This trying harder is
a lesson all of us need in
order to compete in life".
Coach McDowell urged the
young men to "Think positive
and you'll succeed". He point-
ed to the records of the last
few seasons of the FSU Semi-
noles as an example of what


he was saying. "We had
terrible records until our
young men decided they were
going to. win", he said. '
Everyone present enjoyed a
delicious dinner of fried cli-.
cken,ham, green beans, mac-
aroni and cheese, salad and
dessert, fixed and served by
the mothers of the players,

Florida's first constitution.
Program chairman, J:. -C.
Belin, introduced Charles
Daniels, a historian with Flor-
ida State University, who gave
some interesting insight to the
Creek Indian nation. A Creek
Indian himself, Daniels ex-
plained that many of our ways
of living in the South today and
much of the food we eat, came
from the Indians.
"First of all", the speaker
said, "The Indian wasn't an
egotist who pranced about in.
colorful clothes with bangles
and spangles rattling and
shining. He was a man who
hunted for a living and was
very adept at it. He was a


dent; Mrs. Paul S. Fensom, corresponding'
secretary and Mrs. Ralph Swatts, president.

fun, games and jokes much as
today's white man."
Daniels said the Creek na-
tion of Indians was especially
strongin this area until they
were shipped off by the gov-
ernment to Oklahoma, Arkan-
sas and Missouri. "The Creeks
kept the U. S. at bay for 83
years and was the only Indian
nation to receive U.S. ambas-
sadors and sign treaties with
Britain and France", Daniels
said. ...
. Daniels said the Creeks,
were good at talking (and,
proved it by talking for one
and a half interesting hours)
and were good at government.
:Creek women made the tribal.
decisions by voting. If a public


human being who loved his' official didn't do his job as he
family, his nation, good food, should, he was killed.


Daniels said nearly all Sou-
thern towns and highways are
located on the sites of former
Indian villages and trails. Our
towns are arranged in a circle,
in Indian fashion. We eat the
corn, cornbread, succotash,
boiled peas, beans and smok-
ed meat as the Indian did.
Even many of the folklore.
'tales handed down from gen-
eration to generation originat-
ed as Creek Indian tales.
Many of the Uncle Remus
tales are old Indian tales as
told to the slaves of his day.
Daniels talked long and fast
but he held his audience
spellbound as he unfolded the
life of the Creeks so named
by the British because they
lived along the creeks and
streams of the area.

day of this week for a Port St.

Lyles Gives "My Point

of View" to Rotarians


Rotarians heard a few of the
scripts Radio WJOE commen-

I can't give you an account
of the games because due to
the sickness of Stephen
Brown, I had to keep the books
and not my notes. But, I'll give
you what my memory has.
The varsity Gators didn't
waste time in getting behind.
Starter Clyde Gray was
thrown out of the game early
for rough conduct. Coach Mil-
lergren was upset by the call.
When the game neared its
conclusion, the Gators played
only four people. The loss
dropped the Gators to 5-7. The
next three opponents are Port
St. Joe (2-6), Altha (2-7). and
Carrabelle (2-10). Only Carra-
belle is away,
The B and C teams also lost,
by by closer margins.

GIRLS
The girls'played two games,
losing both, one to Greens-
boro, 47-35, and to Port St. Joe.
Their record is 0-5 and they'll
faced Sneads on Tuesday of
this week.


tator Bill Lyles reads over the
air on his "My Point of View"
program last Thursday at
their regular meeting.
Conservative in their theme,
the dissertations dealt with
fiscal realities in government
and suggested the United
States should get a few more
assurances before giving
away the Panama Canal.
One particular sentence in
the talks stated "The way to
spur the economy is for gov-
ernment to quit spending
money it doesn't have".
The talks pointed to the 12
percent increase in the pro-
posed federal budget and op-
posed a tax cut with no
spending cut.
Guests of the club were
Wheelettes Karen Kimmell
.and Yvonne Guilford.

time they were behind by two.
with the Gators leading 33-31.
The Sharks put on their
biggest surge in the third
stanza, when they out-scored
the Gators, 28-24, to take a two
point lead. They held on
during the last period for their
razor-thin win over the Ga-
tors.
Robert Thomas was the big
gun for the Sharks with his 29
points. Chip Pollock added 14
and Ken Thomas put 11
through the nets.
All but one of the Gators


scored in the double figures,
with Ira McFann leading the
way with his 30 points.

With three and a half minutes
left in the initial stanza, Tony
Larry found the range and the
flurry began.
By the time half-time had
rolled around, the Sharks
were behind by six points, as
they trailed 22-28 at half-time.
In the second half, the
Sharks poured 35 points
through the nets and at one
time were only four points
behind, but their effort was
not enough.

Sharks with his 23 points. Leon
Pollock and Tony Larry each
had 10 points.
