Bridge As Salt Water Line

GENE RAFFIELD
Speaks on.SaltWater Line


At the last County Commission meet-
ing. held February 21, the Board was
presented with a request to declare waters
west of thc Highland View bridge as salt
water fishing grounds and waters east of
the bridge as fresh water fishing grounds.
The reason for the request was that
outside fishermen were coming in with
their nets during mullet spawning season
and short-stopping the mullet as they come
out of the canal.
The Commission was reluctant to take
this step since they didn't know what their
responsibility was in the matter.
Tuesday morning, Gene Raffield,
manager of Raffield Fisheries was present
and explained to the Board that Gulf
County presently has no salt water fishing
limits. "We can put our nets in Lake
Wimico if we want to and nobody can stop
us", Raffield said. He pointed out that
commercial fishermen in this area have
stayed out of the canal as a conservation
measure. "If we hem the fish up in the
canal it wouldn't be long before there were
no fish to catch and we certainly don't
want that to come about."
Raffield urged the Commission to
establish a line west of the bridge as
proposed to protect the future of commer-
cial and sport fishing in the'area.
Commissioner Owens asked if such a


move would still allow people catching
speckled trout, flounder and' other' sail
water fish in the canal to do so without a
license. "That's my understanding" Raf
field replied
Sport fishermen and their rights were
the reason the Commission was reluctant
to request such a ruling from the
Department of Natural Resources in th(
first place. They felt such a step woulc
require fishermen fishing in the canal tc
have.a fresh water license regardless ol
what they were fishing for.
The question was then raised as t(
whether or not the Commission could jusl
request abolition of net fishing in the cana
but Chairman Gortman replied that theii
attorney William J. Rish had advised therr
such a step would take a legislative act anc
would take quite a bit of time and effort tc
get accomplished.
SThe Board finally agreed to table th<
discussion to the next meeting and allo&
their acting attorney, Fred Witten, t<
contact the Department of Natural Re
sources and fully define their respfnsibili,
ties in the matter and ascertain just whal
their options are.
As it stands now, the Board is
considering either establishment of the
salt water line at the bridge or prohibiting
nets east of the bridge.

The Federal Insurance Ad-
ministration of the U.S. De-
partment of Housing and Ur-
ban Development announced
this week that under authority
of the National Flood Insur-
anceAct of 1968 and the Flood
Disaster Protection Act'of
1973, it will fund a detailed:
study of the flood hazard areas
in Port St. Joe.
This anhouricement is in-
tended to notify all interested
persons of the commencement
of this study so they may have
an opportunity to attend a
public meeting to be held on
March 20, at 1:30 p.m., in the
,County Commission, meeting
room of the Courthouse. The
Study will: be, performed for
the Federal insurance Ad-
ministrationi by the firm of
Gee and Jenson, Inc.
It "has been requested by
HUD that all elected officials
Sas well as planning, engineer-


ing. and building department
staff be in attendance at the
meeting as well as any inter-
ested citizen, to assist in the
delineation of the study area.::
According to Glenn C. Wood-
ard, Jr Regional Director,
Federal Insurance Adminis-
Stration of HUD's Atlanta Re-
gional Office, the purpose of

the study is to examine and
evaluate flood hazalrd areas:
which are developed or which
are likely to be developed and
to determine flood elevations
for those areas. Flood eleva-
tions will be used by the
community to carry out flood
plain management objectives
of the National Flood Insur-
ance Program. The elevations
'.will be used as the basis .for
determining the appropriate
food insurance premium
rates applicable for new build-
ings and their contents, as
well as determining the rates


to be used for additional
amounts of insurance on exist-
ing buildings and contents.
A representative of the Fed-
eral Insurance Administration
will discuss the nature and
purpose of the Flood Insur-
ance study and outline specific


areas to, be studied.
All persons with information
about past floods are request-
ed to bring this information to
the attention of local officials
so that it can be forwarded to
the Federal Insurance Admin-
istration for use in the study.


'Heavy Rains Fall But

Not As Much As Area
Heavy rains pelted the Northwest Florida area last
week causing flooding in many locations. Port St. Joe was
spared the flooding because rains was somewhat lighter
here than they were in surrounding counties.
The Star's "official" unofficial weatherman, "Capt."
Bill Simmons, reports that the Port St. Joe area received
2.3 inches of rain since last Thursday morning. This
precipitation came on top of 1.5 inches received Tuesday.
Simmons said the two rains combined soaked the ground
causing considerable puddling.

To Accommodate Development


Commission Amends





Subdivision Rules


The Gulf County Cp miis-
sidn agreed Tuesday morning
'to' amend their Subdivision
Ordinance to allow a devel-
opment group headed by"
Rowe Sudduth of Panama City
and Creshull Harrison, Jr., of
Marianna to develop the first
phase of a planned beach
community near Beacon Hill.
Sudduth and Harrison had
asked for a change in the
ordinance to allow them to put'
in a group of about 47 town
houses on the property, as well
as single family units. The
town house units would place a
dwelling on a small lot with
the second house adjoining
another placed on the adjoin-
ing lot. The two town houses
would each use a common
center wall.
The Commission made the
stipulatibn in their Subdivision
Ordinance that they would
consider the smaller lots for
the town house application in
subdivisions which had a cen-
tral water and sewage treat-
ment system. Sudduth and
Harrison said these services
are being planned for their
entire development.
-The change also requires
that the streets be hard sur-
t d by the developer in this
msat~ice: .- "
The ordinance change cal-
led for the lot containing a
single family dwelling to be at
least 60xi20 feet ard requires
those wishing to place the
multi-family town houses on
smaller lots to come' to the
Commission in each instance
for a variance. These changes
to the ordinance apply only.in
areas served by central water
and sewer. Property served
by septic tanks and water
wells are still governed by the
original language in the or-
dinance.
With the ordinance problem
out of the. way, Sudduth then
asked for a preliminary ap-
proval of the entire plat so his
engineers could go ahead with
their work of locating services
such as streets, water wells,
treatment plants, sewage
treatment, etc.


"We're not asking for your
final approval at this time. We
merely want to know if you
approve of our concept in
general, so we can begin
making definite plans to pre-
sent back to you. This part you
have.accepted will be served
by the same facilities as the
entire plat and we must put
them in now."
Sudduth said the final plan
would be presented to the
County Board for their official
and final approval.
The Board said they ap-
proved with the plan in gen-
eral and said that if it con-
formed with their plat laws it
would be accepted upon final
draft.
Sudduth said his firm would
be getting to work in the next
few weeks on the first phase of
the project which is to develop
over 200 homes in the area just
west of St. Joe Beach.
VOTING MACHINES
Supervisor of Elections,
Mrs. Dessie Lee Parker asked
the County Board to consider
purchase of three more voting
machines for the County at the
meeting Tuesday. Mrs. Par-
ker had Glenn Boord of the
Automatic Voting Machine
Company with her at the
meeting, who told the Com-
mission he could furnish the
county with rebuilt machines
for $1,450.00 each, carrying a
three to four year warranty.
Boord said the machines cost
between $3,500 and $4,000 new.
Mrs. Parker reported that
the Overstreet Precinct is the
only one in the County not now

Band Earns Trip to


State for Second Year


Last Saturday at Gulf Coast
Community College in
Panama City, .the St.' Joe
Sharks Symphonic Band parti-
cipated in the Annual Florida
Bandmaster's Association
Concert Contest.
The.Band of Gold received
the highest rating that a band
can receive. Each of the four
judges gave the St. Joe Band a
superior rating.
The next step for your band
is State Concert Contest in
Tallahassee, May 11, 12 and
13, when Florida State Uni-
versity will host the best
bands from the Northern
region.
State competition for band
is divided into three regions


with the same judges judging
at each region to keep the
competition even throughout
the state. No band in Class CC
(same as AA in football) has
received a superior rating in'
state competition for several
years. This is the local. bands
second year in state competi-
tion.
SBand Officers are Field
Director, Julane McFarland
and Captain, Suzanne Ham-
mock. Section leaders are
Monique Pierce, Lorea Re-
gister, Shane Boucher, Stan
Price, Donnie McLawhon,
Suzanne Hammock, Mark
Watts and Kevin Rouse.
Senior members of Sym-


phonic Band are Julane
McFarland, Theresa Re-
gister,. Suzanne Hammock,
Kevin Rouse, Kenneth Turner,
Steve Osborne, Eugene Bailey
and Donnie McLawhon.
The next project will be
April 28 and 29, a softball
tournament with fish fry, a
band concert and other activi-
ties. The money will go toward
paying for Band uniforms and
expenses for State Contest.
There is still an outstanding
debt of $6000 on these new
uniforms. The band appreci-
ates the support of the com-
munity and asks for its con-
tinued support of band activ-
ities.

Oak Grove Project


"Snake-bit" Again


The Oak Grove Water and
Sewer District again appeared
to be snake-bitten when it was
announced Tuesday morning
at the County Commission
meeting that the contractor,
Phil Watson, had been arrest-
ed on a federal warrant on
income tax matters.
The contractor was picked
up the middle of last week by
Federal Marshals and the
project has been stopped ever
since.
County inspector E. F. Gunn
reported to the Commission
Tuesday that he has been
informed that someone will be
on the job next week, either
the past foreman or someone
in his place to get the job going


again.
The County Board, taking no
chances on this information
agreed to write the bonding
company, who had taken the
job from the former contrac-
tor, Tom Newkirk, and given
it over to the present firm, and
advise them of the situation..
It is the responsibility of the
bonding company to finish the
job.
The contract was scheduled
for completion in early Dec-
cember and the County is
notifying the bonding com-
pany that they will invoke
overdue penalties for being
late with the completion of the
project.

Notes

The born again Christian
acknowledges that Christ can-.
celled our debt when He died
on the cross. We no longer
belong to the world, that is to
Satan. The Bible says we are
sitting with Christ in the
heavenlies. We are told that
not to submit ourselves to man
made ordinances because
these all will perish. These
ordinances of man seem wise
but under close check most
are negative. They have. no
value because man cannot
save himself. Jesus said He
was the Way, the Truth, and
the Life. I John 4:1 and 3
warns us to beware of what
spirit we follow for any that
does not confess that Jesus is
from God is a false teaching.
Freedom in, Christ is impossi-
ble to understand until we
have our ears opened
spiritually.

March 10, 1978
Dear Mr. Ramsey;
I resent very much Gulf
County.School Board member
Sewell's description of the
school dance held last week-
end at the Port St. Joe High
School. His choice of words
leads most people especially
those with no children in
school, to believe we are
having drunken brawls at our
school which their tax dollars
built and are now supporting. I
also resent his intimating that
all our young .people who
attend the dances are bad and
get drunk. We have a fine
group of young people in Gulf
County-the best as far as I'm
concerned. Some of our young
people drink alcoholic bever-
ages, I do not like this or in
any way condone it, but
whether or not we have dances
in our high school this problem
will remain with us forever I
am afraid.
The dance last Saturday
was attended by about 250
young people. I was a chape-
rone. The young people were
well behaved, enjoyed the
dance very much, and were
off the streets for at least one
Saturday night. Some of those
attending may have had some-
thing to drink, but they did not
do this inside the building,
they didn't fight, brawl or act
in a disorderly way. The
drinking evidently took place
outside the building and 'no
chaperone can control what
goes on outside the building.
We also have five Gulf County
Sheriff's auxiliary deputies
and a visit from Sheriff
Murphy. The grounds were
patrolled and the dance was
chaperoned by 12 qualified
adults.
I hope Mr. Sewell realizes
the responsibility for a young
man's or a young woman's
morals and behavior does not
begin or end with the Gulf
County School Board, its
teachers, its administrators,
sponsors, or chaperones. It
"begins at 'home with their
parents. I talk to'my two teen-
agers every day and 'pray
every day that I will not have
this probelm, but the fact
remains this drinking problem
in teen years has long been
with us. And if it is decided we
can't have any more dances
for our young people, many
more innocent will be punish-
ed than guilty and the same
ones will be drinking whether
we have a dance or not.
I agree with Mr. Raffield-
give the students a chance to
work on this problem and
you'll be surprised at the
results. I also would venture a
suggestion to Mr. Sewell. He
may do well to consider just
what choice of words he uses
when he talks about our young
people and their parents who
are interested enough to chap-
erone their activities. I, for
one, along with the other chap-
erones and sponsors, would
never have any connection
whatsoever with a bar room
dance for our students. Also, I
don't think Mr. Sewell attend-
ed the dance. If he did, he
didn't come in the front door,
because I was there from
eight p.m. until midnight
when the dance was over.
It's true, it is our school's
responsibility t try and con-
tinue the highest moral and
behavioral standards, but
these ideals must first be
established at home and in-
stilled there daily by our
young people's parents.
I am proud of our young
people and am glad that I can
still find much more good in
them than bad.
Sincerely,
Debbie Tankersley
P.S. It seems proper for Mr. .
Sewell to make a public
apology to our students,
sponsors and chaperones
about this insult at this
time.



Students, too
Dear Mr. Ramsey,
We would like to express our
concern regarding the re-
marks made about the last
dance held at Port St. Joe
High School on March 4,It was
said that "an excessive num-


whiskey containers whatso-
ever. It seems like had they
been there, we certainly would
have found them. Further-
more, we had no complaints of
any misbehavior from any of
the three Auxiliary deputies
who were on duty, nor from
any of the 10 adult chaperones.
' We are fully aware of the
fact that some drinking does
take place at dances. How-
ever, at the last dance, there
was not. an excessive amount
of drinking, and there was
none inside the building. Signs
were posted on the front door
stating, "no drinking, smok-
ing or eating inside," and the
chaperones fully enforced this
rule. The behavior of the
students at the last dance was
exceptionally good, and we
were very pleased that things
went as smoothly as they did.
We were quite surprised to
read on the front page of The
Star that the dance was "a bar
room for kids."
It seems very unfair that the
majority of the kids get
blamed for what the minority
do. In all fairness, we'd like to
clear up any misconceptions
resulting from the statements
made about the last dance.
So on behalf of the students
who enjoy the dances and
abide by the rules, we are
saying that we're very disap-
pointed that we have been put
in the category of excessive
drinkers.
Sincerely,
Deborah Stutzman
and Diana Sealey,
Student Council members


Why Games

Dear Wesley,
Developing the physical
capabilities of our youth is
very important. Most St. Joe

S. P. Wingate


If you don't think it is here already, let me be
the first to tell you that Monday is the first day of
spring.
Spring is a little early this year; ordinarily it.
falls on the 21st of the month.
Monday is also my birthday. If you can come
up with any conclusions about my birthday and
the first day of spring falling on the same day,
you are welcome to them.
Let me be the first to tell you, however, that
having a birthday on the first day of spring isn't
necessarily a panacea for all that another
birthday brings on. As each birthday rolls
around be it on the first day of spring, or the
day before there is less and less spring in me
with each passing year.
I read a rather lengthy article in a recent
Sunday edition of the Tallahassee Democrat
about Mr. Ball. The article said he was
going to have his birthday Tuesday of this
coming week. Ordinarily Mr. Ball's birthday is
on the first day of spring. He appears to get more
and more spring in his life as each birthday rolls
by. This one coming up Monday will be his 91st.
I'm not as old (and maybe not as young at
heart) as Mr. Ball, but I envy him his energy, his
ability to get things done and his keen-ness of
mind. Here I am, half his age and he can think
rings around me.
I'll just take a line here and wish Mr. Ball a
"Happy Birthday" while I hope I can get around
half as good as he can by the time I reach 91.
Maybe if I had been born a day later in the
month I could have acquired some of his moxie.

I was in St. Joe Hardware
Saturday morning and Tom Knox, Jimmy Costin
and Mano Whitehead were rigging up a magnet
on the end of a long pole.
I asked what they were going to do with the
tool and Tom said they were going to fish golf
clubs out of a water pond at the Country Club.
They had a golf club down-on the floor, testing'
the magnet's ability to pick it up.
Then I asked how the golf clubs got in the
water pond in the first place. Tom said they got
there when the golfers got chagrined over a shot
or two they had made and thrown them there.
That's what I need ... to take up a nice
relaxing game like golf to take my mind off the


newspaper business every once in a while. It's
probably just what I need to keep my blood
pressure down at my age and head off any heart
attack before it may happen. It sounds like so
much fun!

Are you going to the big party Secretary of
State Bruce Smathers is planning to throw in the
old Capitol building?
Bruce is working up a party designed to try
and save the old building from being torn down.
He, and others, claim the building is too valuable
both as a usable building and for historical
purposes, to tear down.
If you are planning on going, maybe you had
better give it a second thought. From what I
read, the Fire Marshall for the State of Florida
has limited the number of people who should be
in the building at one time at 562 (or
there-abouts) and there should be nobody on the
second or third floors during the party.
The reason? The building is unsafe for more.
So why are we saving it?
We tore down three "perfectly good" school
buildings with "historical" background here in
Port St. Joe in recent years because they were
unsafe for the kids to attend school in,

School Board member Paul Sewell seems to
have stirred up a hornet's nest with his
statement at the last school board meeting
concerning dances held at the schools.
I'm sure Mr. Sewell didn't mean to come
across quite as strong as he did, but unfortunate-
ly we all think one thing and say another at
times, not thinking how it sounds to others. I
could have probably saved Mr. Sewell some
embarassment by toning down his statement,
editing outitlfi most harsh words, but then I
wouldn't be doing my job.
Mr. Sewell had good intentions, I think, in his
desire to see that affairs for the kids are as
wholesome as possible. We all have that desire.;
Unfortunately the parents who were trying
to see that the dance was a wholesome activity
are taking umbrage to Sewell's statement.
If we're going to make a statement in public
or in print, it's best to find out first-hand what
we're talking about and not get carried away in
the translation.


baseball programs are some
of the best examples of this.
Everyone involved in support-
ing it in any way should be
commended.
However, sometimes not
every aspect is considered in
planning programs. For
example, most churches in
this area have regular Wed-.
nesday night programs, many
with emphasis on the spiritual
development of youth.

games and practices could be
done omitting Wednesdays.
All present agreed that they
didn't see any problem work-
ing it out with the four re-
maining weekdays. This
would afford the participants
a mid-week break also.
When the season began I
was disappointed to find sche-

using a machine. "There are
now over 100 votersi n that
precinct", she said. Mrs: Par-
i er reported the residents of
Howard Creek have also
asked for their own Precinct
S and it now appears as if there
will be over 100 voters in that
new Precinct also. "Each of
these need a machine and we
need a spare for possible
malfunctions on election
day", she stated. '- -`
The Board agreed to call for
'bids for three rebuilt ma-
chines to be paid for out 'of
next year's budget.
County Finance Officer Jer-
ry Gates asked Boord to check
and see if the County could
add the three machines to
their present lease-purchase
plan with Automatic Voting
Machine Company.

SIt took 40 minutes of ma-
tneuvering before the County
could agree to accept a bid on
Sa crawler front end loader
which is needed by the Mos-
quito Control Department to-
-cover its garbage.
i- The hassle was over the fact
that the machine was not in
the present budget and the





MORI


County didn't have the money
on hand to pay for it.
Commisidners Everette
Ow'ens ard $oiis Davis, Jr.,
managed o 'carry their point
of using the bld machine until
the next budget when they.
would have the money to pay
for the new one. Owens stated,
"When we called for these
bids, I was under the impres-
sion we had the money in sight
to pay for it with". Jerry
Gates stated, "You have $15,-
000 and possibly, the use of
some federal funds if we can
secure permission to use it for
that."
Mosquito Control Supervi-
sor Tommy Pitts then'said the
old machine, which has been
in use for 10 years is presently
inoperable and would take a
considerable amount of mon-
ey to put back in business.
"We need a new machine."
Pitts said the present one was
working fairly well when the
budget was made up, but it
has now caused an emergency
situation.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
then made a motion that the
Board accept a bid from
Burford Equipment Company


-in the amount of $47,462 cash
and trade of the old machine
or in two equal payments
amounting to a total of $52,331,
with the final decision on
payment to.be made when the
machine is delivered.
Davis and Owens still oppos-
ed the move, but Kennedy, Bill
Branch and Chairman Gort-
man voted in favor to carry
the motion.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission: .
-Agreed to advertise for
the abandonment of a street in
the Hanlon Subdivision near
the Dead Lakes.
-Accepted an easement
From Sparky Raffield to dig a
drain ditch north of Overstreet
and the county take the dirt
for fill purposes.
-Accepted a Office of Econ-
omic Development Plan from
Wayne Poucher. The plan
allows the county and its cities
to qualify for government
funds.
--Set up a workshop with
Florida Engineers Monday
evening at 7:00 p.m., to dis-
cuss a retainership with the
firm.


Letters to the Editor


Parents Earn too Much


Dear Mr. Ramsey:
What lies in the future for.
our young adults? I was
.talking with my niece about
her luck in finding herself a
job. My hiece is a graduate of
Port St. Joe High.
She told me of several jobs

Agrees:




Letter
i'1 '*,'1 -;U(W ,
Dear Mr. Ramsey, "':
S Mrs. Roche's letter is so
very true, not only in Port St.
Joe but all-over the country.
Hopefully many of the area
people read her letter and will
be stirred up enough to be-
come involved.
Since I represent a new
business here, I felt I must
express my views, for our
future plans are to buy a home
and reside in Gulf County.
I am in business for myself
under a Satellite Ownership
from the main office in
Panama City where there are
a total of four offices.
What Mrs. Roche has no
way of knowing is that be-
tween'800 to 900 people make
at least two trips into Panama
City each tax season to get the
same service I can provide by
the same company right here
in Port St. Joe. I have no way
of knowing how many others
go elsewhere outside of Port
St. Joe for this service.
This represents thousands
t of dollars that deprives all
businesses in this area and
perhaps a few jobs for some of
the local people..
I've received my letter of
-'. invitation from the Chamber
of Commerce. I too have an
"excuse" but not because I
don't like catfish nor because I
don't like this one or that one
for we have found the people
in all walks of life in Port St.
Joe to be very fine, warm,
friendly folk.
My check will be mailed
when my financial status im-
proves and once a resident of
this area I will be active in any
way possible to make this
place a better place to live and
work.
Thank you.

Mrs. Jack (Wauneta) Brewer

told me of one she had applied
for that had an opening: She
was refused the job before she
was even. considered. There
Were three things she said she
didn't understand.
For one thing, they wanted
to know her father's income.
She told them. That's what
took the icing off the cake. Her
father made too much money
for her to be considered.
In other words, she must be
poor or black before she can
be considered for this job.

Dear Mr. Ramsey:
Through the years, Girl
Scouting has grown because of
the support of the people of
Port St. Joe. As Girl Scout
Week approaches, the 4,500
Girl Scouts of the Apalachee
Bend Council would like to
thank your community for
supporting the 1978 Cookie
Sale. This year's sale turned
out to be a tremendous suc-
cess.
The Cookie Sale supports
the maintenance of our two
camps (Camp for All Seasons
and Camp Eleanor), the troop
camping program, and _pro-
gram within the troops.
During the week of March
12-18, the Girl Scouts of the
U.S.A. will be celebrating 66
years of history. We hope that
you will continue to support
Girl Scouting in the future, as
you have so faithfully done in
the past.
We truly appreciate your
interest and support.
Sincerely,
Clara Jane Smith,
President

Puny List
Selma, Alabama
March 8,1978
Dear Wesley,
Just a few words to let you
know I'm not dead, but am on
the puny list.
I was in the hospital Jan:
27th with pneumonia and the
X-rays showed something that
they couldn't figure out, so
they operatedon me and found
tumor cells. So I'm taking
cobalt instead of the chance
with the knife.
I need the prayers of all you
good people in St. Joe for. I
know God answers the pray-
ers of good people.
Hope your dad and mother
are doing good and Frenchie
and the kids.
I hope to see you all one day.
So bye-bye.

Important changes were
made by legislation recently
enacted into law in the
"retirement test," the
measure used by social secur-
ity to decide whether benefits
can be paid to people who
work after their benefits
begin, said Dave Robinson,
Field Representative for Gulf
County.
Most of the changes apply
only to people aged 65-72,
Robinson noted. The retire-
ment test remains just about
as is now in effect for people.
under 65.
First, Robinson continued,
for people 65 and over, the
annual. exempt amount, the
yearly earnings a person can
have and still receive all
benefits, is raised to $4,000 for.
1978. Under present law, the
exempt amount would have
increased to $3,240 for 1978. A
person having earnings above
$4,000 has $1 in benefits with-
held for each $2 of earnings
.above $4,000.
Further increases in the


exempt amount for people 65
and over are scheduled: to
$4,500 for 1979; $5,000 for 1980;
$5,500 for 1981; and $6,000 for
1982. After 1982, the annual
exempt amount will increase
to keep pace with increases in
average wages.
Under the new law, begin-
ning in 1982, no benefits will be
withheld because of earnings
when a person becomes 70.
Under the old law, the earn-
ings limit was lifted when a
person reached 72.
For people under 65, the
exempt amount will be $3,240
for 1978 and will increase in
future years to keep pace with
increases with average wage
levels.

'Taste Of Adventure
Be bold, adventurous and live free. This is what the ad-
vertising industry encourages today. But how many people
can do these things? Certainly no one can live free, even the
good things in life/aren't free anymore. However, there are
ways to enjoy life less expensively but it requires some
boldness and adventure in breaking old routines. The Florida
Department of Natural Resources suggests you try some of
the lesser known, yet highly nutritious species from the sea.
Redfish, sea trout, croaker, tilefish, mullet and mackerel are
delicious finfish which provide high-quality protein, and
supply vitamins and minerals, but have not been advertised
and popularized like some of the other Florida species and
are therefore still good buys. Take the first adventurous step
and boldly introduce these delightful unproclaimed
delicacies to your family in this new recipe. Adventures can
be inexpensive and mealtimes can be daringly different.
DOCKSIDE HASH
2 cups cooked, flaked trout or other fish
3 slices bacon, diced 1% teaspoons salt
1 cup chopped onion 1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups cooked, diced potatoes /s teaspoon cayenne pepper
Vinegar, optional
In a large skillet cook bacon until partially done. Add onion
and continue cooking until onion is tender but not brown. Stir
in fish, potatoes, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Spread
hash evenly over bottom'of skillet and cook until bottom is
browned and crusty. Turn mixture and continue to cook until
browned. Serve with vinegar if desired. Makes 6 servings.

CARD OF THANKS

During the time of our
recent tragedy of losing our
house by fire I would like to
express our deepest thanks to
all those who have been so
kind to us. Indeed may you be
blessed as you have been a
blessing to us, with such kind
deeds and wishes. It seems at
a time of losing perishable
things, we see the real values
of life. The loving acts of
concern and kindness have
left us rich with these values.
To all the Clubs, Churches,
Organizations and Indivi-
duals, thank you, and may
God bless each and everyone
of you.
Thank you.

The Internal Revenue
Service has announced that up
to 300,000 Florida taxpayers
are eligible, for the Earned
Income Credit on their 1977
federal .income tax returns..
Charles 0. DeWitt, IRS Dis-
trict Director for Florida, said
this provision of the law could
enable certain low income
workers to receive up to $400,
even if they paid no income
tax during 1977.
SLast year, more than 287,000
Florida taxpayers received a
total of $59 million as a result
of the Earned Income Credit.
The number of Floridians
benefiting from the credit was
exceeded only by taxpayers in
California', :T 4s and New
York, according to Mr.
DeWitt. .
To qualify for the credit, a
worker's total adjusted gross
income must be less than
$8,000. Additionally, persons
must have paid over half the
cost of maintaining a home for
themselves and at least one of
their children who was under
the 19 years of age or a
full-time student, or a disabled

who qualifies as a dependent.
The Earned Income Credit
may be used to help pay
federal taxes owing or sent to
the workers as a refund check.
However, any money received
:because of the credit does not
count as income when the
.person is considered for
federally funded public assist-
ance programs, Mr. DeWitt
said.
Mr. DeWitt emphasized thai
eligible workers must file a
federal income tax return to
claim the credit, even if they
are not required to file a
return because of low
earnings. Persons who want
the IRS to compute the credit
for them should check their
instruction packages.
Qualified persons with earn-.
ings of $4,000 or less receive a
credit of 10 percent of their -
earned income only, up to-
maximum of $400. Those with
total income of between $4,000
and $8,000 are also entitled to
the credit based on earned ,
income, but the amount of
credit decreases $1 for every
$10 of income over $4,000.

course, there is much debate
about the type of fertilizer to r
use. As one resident remarked .
rather succintly. "didn't know
that grass could read the fer-
tilizer label." That's true; but.
then there are good and better
types of fertilizer to. use on
grass in early spring.
Remember, the soil is still
cool. The root system is not as
active as it will be a month
from now. The blades of grass
are not active so they cannot S
supply the action to convert
the fertilizer into growth.
What should you do then?
Most grasses at this time
will need a complete fertilizer.
To the uninitiated, a complete
fertilizer is one that contains
the three basic elements nec-
essary for plant grow. .They .
are nitrogen, phosphorous and
potassium. Some fertilizers
contain additional elements B
CR
such as iron, maganese 'and 195/
magnesium. Generally the 19 c

better the fertilizer, says Flor- El

Association. The cost. is, re- Abo
lated to the amount of nitro- treal
gen and its availability. Slow
release nitrogen does cost
more than ammonium sulfate,
a readily available source.
Which type do you need to
apply? Since the soil is cold, it
would be advisable to apply a
fertilizer than has some avail-
able nitrogen for use as soon
as it is applied. About half of

hitchka has upped its tax take
from $17,037.81 to $17,257.00
over the same period.
"This isn't all the money
any agency has to operate
on". Gates pointed out. He
especially cited federal reve-
nie sharing funds which have
become a large part of every
county and city budget. He
pointed out that "These funds
are designed for one time
expenditures such as build-
ings, equipment, etc. These
items are needed all the time
and when and if the federal
revenue funding is stopped
you will see a financial emer-
gency in Gulf County."
Gates said that most of the
increases in expenditures over
the past years and in the near
future will be from federal and
state mandated programs
which will require local fi-.
nancing. He pointed to several
programs already underway
which local government didn't
ask for but must pay for.
These included binding arbi-
tration for government em-
ployees on every level, medi-
caid and medicare indigent
patients in hospitals and rest
homes, and a host of other
items.
Coming in the future will be
up to'a half mill levy for the
Northwest I'lorida Water
Management District in the
new tax year. This levy was
mandated by a Constitutional
Amendment voted on two
years ago. Another spectre
coming up in the probable
near future will be revalua-
tion. Gates said he can see
where this mandate would
force many retired people to
sell the homes they have
worked for all their lives
simply because they couldn't
afford to pay the taxes.
In summarizing county ex-
penditures, Gates said the
County budgeted $890,000 in its
