Plans for





South Gulf County will soon
have what Florida Engineer
Associates owner Robert Na-.
tions termed. "the finest de-
velopment Gulf County has
ever had".

Nations told the County
Commission Tuesday that
Rowe Sudduth of Panama City
and C. C. Harrison of Marian-
na were planning a 250 family
development on the Gulf of

Mexico between St. Joe Beach
and Beacon Hill.

Sudduth and Harrisonr are
planning to develop a tract, on
the east side of Highway 98
'into .a subdivision of 168 lots.
The development will be com-
pletely self-contained with its
own water and sewer system
and paved roads. The devel-
opers were making plans to
put in all the services and

facilities themselves, prior to
'-selling the lots in the tract.
'! An innovative section of the
*fnew tract will feature a new
onwn house concept, not seen
:before here in this area.
'Sudduth said the developers
Are just'beginning to build a
few of this type dwelling on
fanama City Beach. The town
f ouse is in reality two individ-
ual houses joined together at a
common wall, with the com-

mon wall placed on the lot line
between two lots. The town
houses give the convenience of
small grounds. to care for,
adequate room for the owner
and economy.
This new town house con-
cept will be the reason for a
special meeting between the
developers and the County
Commission Friday after-
noon., Sudduth said the town
houses would be built on lots of

a smaller size than is called
for in the County Subdivision
plat. The subdivision plat was
drawn to assume that home
builders would use wells and
septic tanks in developments.
Sudduth and Harrison are
planning their own systems
for these purposes.

The purpose of the meeting
Friday is to get a more
thorough picture of what Sud-

duth and Harrison are plan-
ning to do with the possibility
that they will change or
amend the subdivision regula-

When asked when the new"
subdivision was being planned
to open up. Sudduth replied,
"If we're going to do anything
this summer, we have to get
started within the next 30

The City of Wewahitchka is
hunting around for money to
build a medical building in
that city, according to a
request made of the County
Commission Tuesday by Bud
Poucher; who has been hired
by that City to seek out federal
Poucher told the Commis-
sion.the City of Wewahitchka
has two doctors coming on or
about Julyl and need a place
to put them. "We have looked
at every avenue for federal
funds with which to put up a
building, but -there are none
:'i available anywhere", he said.
Poucher said they could get
funding for supplies anrd fix-
tures but none for the building.
Poucher was asking for a
pledge' of funds from the
County Commission to aid the
north Gulf city, but the Com-
mission said their purse was
bare at- least for the
remainder of this fiscal year.
Poucher said plans in We-
wahitchka are to put up a
medical center which would
accommodate the doctors and
the ambulance service.
The County Commission
said they may be able to help
financially in the future with
the ambulance service portion
of the building, but could not
make any promises at the
Present time.
With the coming of the
floods and rains recently, the
expected deluge of people
living in out-lying areas with
water problems .faced the'
Commission Tuesday.
Mrs. Doris Hidle of Howard
Creek told the Commission
that their area needs draiiiage
work to prevent future flood-

which had been done by recent

Hidle that they were working
on securing an easement to

Another road problem was
brought to the Board by
Sparky Raffield of Overstreet
who' anted something done
on the Jarred Daniels Road
Raffield said. "This road
has been closed for nearly four
years We gave an easement
with the assurance the road
wouid be fixed There are now
nine families living on the
road and we have property to
sell there"..
The road, about eight miles
long, connects Highway 22
with Highway 386.
SThe Board said they would
get the road finished just as
soon as they could.
Building inspector E. F.
Gunn reported to the Commis-
sion-that the inside ceiling tile
of the Wewahitchka Health
Clinic needed replacing rather
than painting as called for in
repair specifications for work
now underway.
Gunh said that now that a
new roof has been put on the
building, money set aside for
painting the suspended ceiling
tiles on the inside should be
used for purchasing new tiles.
"You can't paint those
things", he said. "They are all
to pieces". Gunn said the
suspension grid was in good
condition and suggested that it

John Miller New CofC President

John Miller was installed as
the new president of the Port
St. Joe-Gulf County Chamber

of Commerce at the annual
dinner meeting of the Cham-
her Monday night. The dinner,

catered by the Port St. Joe
Lion's Club, was held in the
Commons Area of the Port St.

Wanda Brown. retiring president of two of the office Io John Miller. who was installed

Joe High School.
In accepting the post, Miller
said, "We want to work as a
Chamber to promote the so-
cial, civic and economic wel-
fare of Gulf County". He,
along with the new Board of
Directors, called on the people
of the county to join with the
Chamber in trying to achieve
this goal.
Sworn into the officer corps,
with Miller were Wendell
Whitaker, vice-president;
Jean Atchison, secretary and
David Roche, treasurer.
New members to the Board
of Directors installed Monday
night were: Tom Coldewey,'
Rex Buzzett and George Dur-
en. Carry-over directors are
Jean Atchison, William H.
Ramsey; A. O. Boyette, Wen-
dell Whitaker, David Roche
and Higdon Swatts.
SMrs. Wanda Brown was the
retiring president, completing
two years in that position.
Guest speaker for the eve-.
ning was Di. Laiiry Tyree.
president of Gulf Coast Com-
munity College of Panama
Dr. Tyree began by observ-
ing that there are two sectors
to our society: those who earn
a regular paycheck and those .
who are in business for them-
selves and take a chance on

making a profit to provide
their livelihood. "Both seg-
ments are unique". Dr. Tyree
said. "and it takes the two to
keep our system going", he
observed. The theme which
Dr. Tyree developed during
the evening was to determine
just what he termed as an
"invisible harness" keeps
these two working side by
The speaker pointed out that
America has one of the highest
living standards in the world.
"It was brought about by
energetic business in building
andselling", he said.
He then pointed to Russia
which also produces a goodly
number of goods and has an
energetic industrial complex.
"The difference is", Dr. Tyree
said. "That the difference
between cost and selling price
in America is profit. In Rus-
sia. this difference is known as
'tarn'. or what the Govern-
ment takes as its part of the
nperalion .., .
Dr. Tyree offered the opi-
ion that this is the reason the
gross national product of this
type nation never grows. "All
that is earned goes to the
In America. the speaker
pointed out that the carrot on

the end of the string which
keeps everyone going is the
profit motif. "Everyone ex-,
pects to make a profit on what
he does or what he sells", the
speaker said. "This is the
elusive ingredient which
makes our nation so great anfd"
vibrant", he asserted.
The college president also
pointed out that Gulf Coast is ;
the only college of any size ii
Florida which is teaching a.
credit course on the private.'
enterprise system. "We are,
only one of 11 in the entire.
nation offering such a.
course", he said.
"This could be the very
reason many high school grad-'
uates have the mistaken idea.
that most business makes-
profits of over 50 percent. It is
the reason so many of ,our
young people do not believe in
profit. It could be why 85
percent of our college seniors
think the government should
operate the railroads, airlines,
mines .and other public busi-
nesses", hb said.
Dr. Tyree said-there could
be no greater mistake made in
our nation than for the nation
as a whole to lose sight of the
important part profit has paid,
in making this nation so great
and strong.

Dr. Tom Gibson Nominated for State-Wide Honors

Dr. Tom Gibson of Port St. Joe has been
nominated for the Florida Library Associa-_
tion's Outstanding Citizen Award for 1977-78
by Jane Patton of Panama City, Director of
Libraries in the Northwest Regional Library
Ms. Patton put Dr. Gibson's name in
nomination this past week in a letter to Jane
Finkbeiner, chairman of the awards commit-

tee in Maitland.:
In her letter of nomination, Ms. Patton
gave as the reason for her nomination that
Dr. Gibson had' given $25,000 toward the
construction of a library building here in Port
St. Joe and had given an additional $25,000 to
be used as recommended by the Library
Ms. Patton' said, "This gift of money

made it possible for the county to match funds
for state money available (for the building)".
Ms. Patton's letter went on to state, "Dr.
Gibson presented the gift in a most gracious
manner, making few demands on its use,
seeking primarily to support regional library
growth, the building program, and to per-
petuate the memory of his deceased wife's
contributions to the community."

It would be helpful in securing this honor
for Dr. Gibson if people from the community
would write to the awards committee in
support of Dr. Gibson's nomination.
Those wishing to write should send their
letters, prior to March 1, to: Jane Finkbeiner,'
Chairperson, F..L.A. Citations and Awards
Committee, c-o Maitland Public Library,'
Maitland, Florida 32651.

Did you ever think in terms,
of 448,000 pounds of mullet?;..
Did you ever wonder just'
how much mullet that is? HoW-
many fish dinners it would:
make? How many people that.
many mullet would feed?
Can you even imagine 448,-
000 pounds of mullet in one,
place at one time, going to the.
same place?
Even Raffield Fisheries,
who deal in mullet and other
seafood in. a big way here in:
Port St. Joe had never dealt inr
that kind of order before ;
until this week. This week,:
they shipped off an order of
this dimension, consisting
only of mullet, to Egypt. To
top that off, they have an
order for twice that amount
later on in the fall of this year.
Egyptians have apparently
found out whit Floridians
have known for quite some
time you just can't beat the
taste of a West Florida mullet.
Gene Raffield, manager of
the Raffield operation here,
said this was the largest single
shipment of a single species of
fish he knows of being shipped
out of the State of Floridaito
any destination. "We handle a
lot of fish, but we have never
had an order like this," Raf-
field said.
The fish were loaded on a
ship in Pensacola Tuesday
after eight trailer truck-loads
of the fish were transported
from the Raffield freezers to
the Pensacola docks Suhday
night and Monday.
Raffield said, "We have
been in negotiations for over a
year on this deal. We expect
great things out of the market
connection we have made."

These workmen pile boxes of frozen Gulf of Mexico mullet into one of species of seafood ever shipped out of Florida, according to Gene Raffield,

President Carter:
My family and I have had
the pleasure of living and
traveling throughout: these
United States and several for-
eign countries.
There appears to be a con-
tinuous effqort in all q these
areas to bog down the politi-
cal governing bodies with mul-
titudinous legislation to recog-
nzie minority groups and-or
legislate persons into higher
levels of business and society.
Two programs that confront
your administration, if solved,
would release considerable
time and energy not only in
the political arena, but also
those wonderful free minds
that consume so much of the
lobbying time for "Women's
Rights" and "Homosexual-
Though, I personally consi-
der the reference to "Man"
in the Constitution as the an-
thropological man or the
"Whole Human Being", re-
gardless of gender, others do
not take that opinion as sound.
I, therefore, recommend the
following simple, unencum-
bered amendment to the Con-
stitution of the United States
of America:
a. Be it herewith known and
understood that all refer-
ences to "Man in the Bill of
Rights and the Constitution
of These United States, now
Sin and henceforth, refers to
all genders of society (ex-
cept where physical ap-
pearance deems other-
wise). However, the Gov-
ernment does refuse to re-
cognize any single indivi-
dual claiming both genders
simultaneously, now or in
the future;
b. Be it further understood
that the government of the
United States totally re-
cognizes the homosexual..
for what he is. or they are!
There! That takes care of full
recognition of everybody.

profitable, has hope, contains
knowledge. The following
three verses from Romans 15
say quite plainly the things a
Christian should know. Verse
4, "For whatsoever things
were written aforetime were
written for our learning, that
we through patience and com-
fort of the scriptures might
have hope. (5) Now the God of
patience and consolation
grant you to be likeminded one
toward another according to
Christ Jesus; (6) that ye may

with one mind and one mouth
glorify God, even the Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Very plainly we are to read
and study God's word, the
Bible. We are to have patience
and have comfort (relief of
distress) in reading the scrip-
tures. The 26th verse of John
14 tells us the Holy Spirit will
be our teacher. God will give
us the ability to love one
another (be likeminded one
toward another).
This "one mind and one

mouth" that we may have
may sound a bit strange when
we have so many churches
that seem to not always
worship the same God. But
God isn't speaking about reli-
gious doctrine, He is speaking
a spiritual fact. There is a
common ground of "one mind
and one mouth" through the
Holy spirit to 'worship God
with. He promised it. He sent
the One who administers it.
The Holy Spirit. God's Word,
the Bible, is absolute fact.



I'm ahead of myself this week. I'm writing
this column or at least part of it on Friday of
last week.
The reason for getting in such a big hurry is
that Friday was such a pretty day and the
first one we had experienced in some time ... I
just had to take advantage of the opportunity to
brag about it before it went away.

Friday was the kind of day which makes
those living in the northern regions come south.
The weather was crisp, sun-shiny and dazzling.
No rain in sight for a change.
Evidently we missed our chance for snow
this year when we failed to get it'last week. We
came close. Wednesday morning when I went to
work, it was sleeting.
As bad as the weather has been for the past
month. I'll still take our hurricanes over the type
blizzards those people on the eastern seaboard
have been having.

Speaking of the weather, I overlooked the
ground hog in last week's column.
I read where he came out of his hole up in
Punxatawney, Pennsylvania, saw his shadow,
and scampered right back into his burrow for six
more weeks of winter.
I'm beginning to have second thoughts about
that ground hog. He's supposed to be so smart
and be able to tell at a glance what the weather is
going to do for six weeks in the future. He is even
smart enough to come out of his hole on the same
day every year. He doesn't vary.
If he's so smart and so knowledgable about
the weather, why does he commit the foolish
move of coming out of his warm hole in weather
like they were having in Pennsylvania last week
just to see if the sun is shining?
Only man is supposed to be crazy enough to
pull a stunt like that.

I was out at the Courthouse the other day and
stopped by the office of Clerk George Core.
As I walked in the door, Tomi Jo Scheffer
asked me, "Why didn't you put the account of my
death by auto accident in the paper last week?"
I said, "Tomi Jo, I didn't really know you
had been killed by an auto accident last week."
"Oh, yes", she replied, "I heard it all over
town that I had been in an automobile accident
and had been killed."
Since I missed the story of Tomi Jo's death
by accident, I'm going to print a better story -
her resurrection from the grave. Since she is
only the second one to pull off this trick, that
story deserves printing more than her untimely
death notice.

If the first story was true, the second is also,
since Tomi Jo is very much alive and walking
through the Courthouse every day.

I read in the paper the other day where
President Carter was proposing that parents of
children going to college should receive a tax
break of sorts to offset this growing expense.
I agree with the President on this one.
Having sent several of my kids to college for
varying lengths of time, I know how it bends the
purse strings to pay for that higher education. It
The President is recommending that college
age kids of middle income parents be allowed
$250.00 per year for tuition. This will help.
I read a little farther in the story and found
out that the cut-off figure for the middle income
bracket was $25,000 per year income.
Here I have been working all my life in order
to get into a position where I could earn just a
little above the middle income bracket and now
I'm foiled again. I have to get going in overdrive
in order to just maintain my position in the
middle of the middle income category. In other
words, the category is growing faster than my

Speaking of income, I see where Florida
Supreme Court Justice Fred Karl has resigned
his position because his $43,000 annual salary
isn't enough to pay his bills. He said his creditors
are tired of waiting, he's down to a one car
family and his wife has had to go to work so the
Karl's could make ends meet on his Justice
Old Fred has problems other than the size of
his income if he can't get along on $43,000 per
year. He might be right in his statement that a
Justice of the Supreme Court deserves a higher
salary each year, but his statement that he:
couldn't pay his bills sort of led me to believe
that the Karl's must have problems deciding on
how to spend their income.
With this type problem, maybe it's a good
thing the. people of Florida did him the favor of
not electing him Governor several years past.

I'm still receiving spools.
This last week, a dear lady named Miss Elsie
Haught of Bristow, Oklahoma, sent me some
spools. Miss Haught was my teacher in the first
and third grades. I still remember her and, after
all those thousands of students she has taught
over the years, she still remembers me and most
of her other former pupils and tries to keep up
with them.
I thank you, Miss Haught, and if you ever get
to Florida, come.to see us.

S Natural gas supplies vitally needed energy
to thousands of homes, businesses and indus-
tries ini Florida. Energy, whether it be in the
form of gas, electricity, oil, water, etc., when un-
controlled can be dangerous.

Eventhough a record for safe operations has
been established over the years by the regulated
gas industry, knowledge of the information con-'
tained in this ad can assist you in recognizing a
potentially hazardous condition and take appio-
priate action to safeguard life and property.

Q. What Are Some Of The Characteristics Of
Natural Gas A User Should Know?
A. Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits
the' following characteristics:
1. Odorless-an odor is added to this gas.
2. Jt is lighter than air and if released will
rise into the atmosphere unless trapped.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any burn-
ing process, incomplete combustion will
'form carbon monoxide which' is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from four
percent to 14 percent (approximate values
by volume of gas to air).

Q. Is Natural Gas Dangerous?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas use
shows it to be more safe than other energy
sources whici hyou use in your home or busi-

Q. What Should You Know About Gas Odor?
A. 1. Natural gas doesn't normally have an
2. A substance is added by your gas company
to give natural gas a "rotten-egg" smell

Thomas Says Free Enterprise Necessary to N

Tommy Thomas, a Panama
City automobile dealer, told
the Rotary Club last Thursday
that he is concerned about the

.survival of the free enterprise
-system in the United States.
Thomas Stressed that the
freedoms which feed the free

enterprise system are being
whittled away day by day by
the Federal Government,
weakening our position as a

free nation. "Federal gov-
ernment shouldn't do a darn
thing but deliver the mail and,
protect our shores, and they

publicized Jan. 19 and 26 in
editions of the Wakulla County
Leron Crum, a commercial
fisherman in Wiikulla 'County,
reportedly caught one mullet
Jan. II that weighed in at
nine-pounds 12 ounces. It was
taken with a gillr net on the
Franklin County side of the
Ochlockonee River at the
minuth of Yankee John Creek:,
-Charlie Futch, assistant'
chief of DNR's Bureau of
Marine Science and Tech-

nology, Division of Marine.
Resources, said that, until
Crum caught his mullet, it was
believed the largest confirmed
catch of'mullet was the nine-
pound 10-ounce black mullet
caught in 1969 by Al Turner of
.St. Petersburg. .
Dale Beaumariage, chief of
the -bureau that' conducts
varied research on i marine
fisheriess, said if the catch'of
large mullet substantiates
anything "it is the contention
that the fish are as plentiful

been, ..

popular for public fish firies
seems to refute thoughts that
they are declining in-Florida's'

should it escape.
3. Become familiar with the smell. Should
you detect this odor, it doesn't positively
tell you that there is a gas leak; but this is
sufficient reason for you to call your gas
company and have them investigate.

Q. What Additional Ways Can You-Detect A. Gas
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect a
leak by seeing bubbles rising through pud-
dles of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground pip-
ing may be able to be seen by sand blowing
around a small hole in the ground; it may
be felt just as you may feel air leaking
'from a small hole in a tire or air hose; and
if it is a large leak, a noise can be heard
similar to air leaking.
3. A flame at or around appliance piping
other than at the burner indicates leakage.

Q., The Fact That A "Rotten-Egg" Odor Is De-
tected, Does That Mean That There Is A
Natural Gas Leak?
A. No. But this should be checked to assure that
the odor isn't an indication of a gas leak. Call
your gas company and report it. Odor simi-
lar to that 6f natural gas may come from the
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration plant which has a' sulphur
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled, etc.

Q. If There Is A Gas Leak, Will You Always
Smell An Odor?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground pipe,
there should always be an odor. However,
when gas travels through the ground, such as
a leak from an underground service line or
main, the ground acts as a filter and can re-

move the odor from the gas.

Q. Why Isn't A Gas Odor Smelled When The.Gas
Is Burned On A Gas Range or,Furnace?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is flam-
mable and is consumed in, the process of
burning. If your equipment is properly ad-
justed you should not detect the odori when
you are using your appliances.

Q. What Can One Do To Reduce The Possibility
Of An Accident?
A. First, keep the emergency telephone number
of your gas company handy. A good place to
keep this number is to write it down in the
front of your telephone book along with other
emergency numbers such as fire, police, etc.
Other things which should be done to improve
as well as conserve energy are:
1. Teach children that they are not to play
with any appliances in the home.:
2. Clean the burners and have them checked
for proper adjustment periodically.
3. Repairs, installations and removal of ap-
pliances are jobs for qualified persons.
Use only qualified people to do this work.
4.. If lighting of an appliance is required, AL-
WAYS light match and hold at ignition
point of burner before you turn on the gas.
5. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for
operation and care of gas appliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call your gas company.

Q. What Should Be Done When One Believes He
Smells Gas?
A. There are many possible conditions which
could be encountered, thus it isn't possible to
give specific instructions for every situation.
The following examples provide general in-
structions which should assist:
1. If a slight odor of gas is detected in a local-
iied area or room.of a building--do not

use a match or other flame in the area;

2. If a strong odor of gas is detected in a

are not doing either one very
well", the speaker said.
Thomas blamed the in-
creased government spending
and taxation for the eroding of
our system. He pointed out
that the tax rate has increased
10.000 percent since 1929 and
that taxes are fast becoming
the largest single item in the
budget of the average family.
"Even the average Ameri-
can doesn't know that the
Social Security system is $17
trillion in debt." Thomas said.
The area car dealer said,.
"It's a disgrace what we're
doing to our young people.
They.will never know the good
life we had because there will
be no money to finance it when
they reach adulthood. When
we get more in'the wagon than
is pulling, we're in trouble and
we're near there now."
Thomas pointed out that
Socialism has been tried all
over the world- at various
times and it has never worked.
"England wag once one of the.

world's greatest powers, tut
Socialism has changed their
status. They are great tno
longer. Now we're copyihg
them and can only expectto
wind up the same way."
Thomas also hit at ie
distorted picture of Ote
amount of profit the average
person thinks the average
business man makes. He
pointed out that, "I collect
more sales tax on each car I
sell than I get to keep myself.
in my business. That means I
makeless than four percenIof
what my business takes in.i
The speaker warned that
taxes were continuing to gtow
to the danger stage. "We hqve
to stop it somewhere",: ihe
pointed out. "We as.a nafton
can't stand to have 50 percent
of our gross national product
going for taxes and it's getting
near that point now."

Ajuga, commonly called
bugleweed, is a perennial. It
spreads by stolons and has an
erect flowering spike. The
flowers are violet-blue. The
leaves of the plant are a
bronzeor green color. Ajuga is
a shade loving plant It will
grow in full sun but the quality
of the ground cover will be
much better in shade. There is
no mowing or shearing of this
plant. It does best in the
central and northern part of
the state. There is a leafspot
that attacks the leaves and'
rpotknot can be a problem.
Recently Asparagus spren-
geri has become very popular
ap a ground cover. It is a rapid
grower. Like Ajuga, it is a
tenacious perennial. The
leaves are very small and
thin. The plant produces many
branches which bear white
flowers followed by red
berries. This is a persistent
plant surviving both cold and
drought. The' vigorous root
system can help to maintain
steep banks and slopes. When
it becomes too rank, it can be

Gators Snap Losing Streak Win Over Carrabelle

By Dean Modling
S The varsity Gators snapped
a five-game losing streak with
a victory over Carrabelle; but
earlier came losses to Port St.
J: Joe and Altha.
; When the Gators travelled
to St. Joe, the score was a

: Motorcycle

On the In
Motorcycle deaths rose in
1977 ovef the previous year
said the Florida Highway
Patrol recently.
.. Colonel Eldrige Beach,
Patrol director said, "Pre-
liminary reports for 1977 indi-
cate that there were 142
motorcyclists killed. This is an
increase of 12 compared to the
same period the year before."
S, Florida law requires motor-
cycle riders to wear an ap-
proved helmet at all times.
; Also headlights must be on
when riding during daytime or
nighttime hours.

"He is really wise who
.is nettled at nothing."
La Rochefoucauld

close 81-80, the Sharks just
pulling it out. But when St. Joe
came north, they demolished
the Gators 81-61.
As expected, the game stay-
ed close through the first three
quarters. When a Gator buck-
et made the score 52-49

[e Deaths

Records indicate that
almost three times more
motorcycle riders are injured
when involved in crashes than
occupants of cars in crashes.
Facts from a previous study
of motorcycle fatal crashes in
Florida indicate that the most
dangerous hours were 5:00 to
6:00 p.m. and most happened
at intersections.
It also .showed that in 57
percent of the fatal crashes
the motorcycle operator
caused or contributed to the
Beach concluded by saying,
"Motorcycle riders are in-
creasing in number each year
and unless more care is
exercised by them, the fatality
rate will continue to climb."

Sharks, it was the last Wewa
point for 4:20.
By the time Wewa scored
again, it was too little, too late.
With the score 67-51, all the
Gators could do was wait for
the clock to run out.
Ira McFann was high scorer
with 25, followed by Robert
Wright with 12 and Willie Hill
with 11.
Score by quarters:
Wewa- 14 22 13 12-61
PortSt.Joe- 11 21 22 27-81
The junior varsity's game
was closer. After getting be-
hind early, they couldn't catch
up, though, and lost 49-42. Tim
Taunton was high scorer with
18 and Darwin Borntrager
with 11.
In a low-scoring game, the
junior high team had a chance
to pull it out, but didn't. They
lost 15-14. Robert Daniels and
Melvin Wyms each had six

The next opponent for the
Gators were the Altha Wild-
cats at home. Way back in
mid-December, these two
teams faced each other in the
Chipley Christmas tourna-
ment. Altha was victorious,
77-71. Again they were victor-

ious, but by a wider margin,
The Gators had a first quar-
ter lead, but at halftime, were
down 41-35. In the third quar-
ter, the Gators battled to a
48-48 tie, but by the start of the
fourth quarter, had dropped to
a 62-56 deficit.
The game started slipping
from Wewa's grasp. Out-
scored in the final period 20-10,
the Gators lost 82-66.
Robert Wright had 25 pionts
and Willie Hill's 16 and Lewis
Wright's 12 accounted for all
double-figure scoring.
Score by quarters:
Wewa- 20 13 21 10-60
Altha- 18 23 21 20-82
The junior varsity team had
a five-pqint lead at halftime,
but was outscored 31-12 in the
second half to lose 53-39. Tim
Taunton led with 17 points.

The Gators travelled to Car-
rabelle for the second meet-
ing between the two teams. In
a surprisingly close game, the
Gators won 66-54.
The game started off as ex-
pected, with the Gators hold-
ing a 11-4 first quarter lead.
But something happened to
the Green Devils during the

second quarter. They came
fighting back and actually
took the lead. The thoroughly
surprised Gators held a slim
30-27 halftime lead.
At the first meeting between
these two in Wewa, the Gators
held a 46-17 halftime lead.
Carrabelle fought hard dur-
ing the third quarter and man-
aged to come even closer,
47-46. But in the final period,
Wewa settled down and start-
ed playing ball. Outscoring
Carrabelle 19-8, they won
Lewis Wright was high
scorer with 17, followed by
Willie Hill with 16, Robert
Wright and Ira McFann with

Score by quarters:
Wewa- 11 19 17 19-66
C'belle- 4 23 19 8-54
The junior varsity also
broke their losing steak with a
64-51 victory. That game, too,
stayed close until the fourth
quarter. Darwin Borntrager
basketed 26 points, teammate
Tim Taunton added 22 while
Duke Vann chipped in 10.
To clear up the miscellan-
eous file, here areisome of the
other games:
The girls' and junior high
team played Aucilla twice.
The C team split the pair (win-
ning in Aucilla), while the
girls' team dropped both.
