:'Considering Apartment Complex for City
.- . 1M



48 Units
Representatives of the For-
est Investment Corporation of
Bellvue, Washington, were in
Port St. Joe yesterday to
consider building an apart-
ment complex here in the City.
Nick Sumich, location direc-
tor for the firm, said they are
interested in building a 48 unit
project here, designed to pro-
vide housing for middle in-
come people. The project is
not a government subsidized
While they were in the city,
representatives of the firm
inspected about five sites
which could be made avail-
able to the company to locate
the apartment complex. While
here, they made several co-
tacts with City government
and Chamber of Commerce
The company has been in
contact with local officials and
an area real estate broker,
Eldon Miller of Century 21 for
several weeks, but this is the
first visit to Port St. Joe by
representatives of the firm to
consider a site for the project.
Sumich said the firm has
several such developments,
principally in the West and are
just now moving into Florida.
Sumich came to Port St. Joe
S ..fro .Mia;.ni w.iere he was
- inspection ,.a. proposed site
The firm is currently mak-'
ing a survey of the vicinity to
see what support or possible
interest there would be for
such a development which
would provide an apartment
complex which would be com-
pletely care-free for the ten-
ants. Sumich said their main
thrust is aimed at retired
people, singles and young
couples who need a place to
live in relative comfort with-
out a large outlay for rent.
If the firm gets the support t
and interest they are looking
for, their project would be the
first sizeable apartment com-
plex ever constructed in 'or
near the city.

William J. Rish has called
upon the Florida Legislature
to initiate a process that would
place a ban on such spending

Rish, D- Port St. Joe, has
filed a bill requesting the
Legislature to petition Con-
gress for a constitutional con-

consider amending the Consti-
tution to require a balanced
federal budget. Rish's pro-

Murphy, Walton Henry But-

each charged with three
counts of "grand theft", one
count "dealing in stolen pro-
perty." Donald Harold Butler,
27, of Route 3, Port St. Joe,
was charged with one count of
"dealing in stolen property."
Deputies Ray' Watson and
James Mock were called to
theJr. Food Store No. 34 on St.
Joe Beach Monday morning to
investigate the theft of a water
pump from the rear of the
store. Information received
through investigation led to
the arrest of Baxley and Wal-
ton H. Butler, who had al-
legedily taken the pump Sun-
day night. Another pump had
been taken from this same
location in November of 1977,
stated Sheriff Murphy and,
enough information was gain-
ed to charge the two with the
November theft.
It was later discovered that
in January of this year, Bax-
ley and Walton Butler had
allegedly taken a 20 h.p. Mer-
cury outboard motor from the
residence of Otis .Jeffcoat on
St. Joe Beach and had sold this
motor to Donald Butler. All of
the stolen property was re-
covered late Monday.
All of the persons arrested

Rish pointed .but that the
current federal budget of
$462.2 billion includes a $61.3
billion deficit. "It's incredible,
but $41.7 billion of the budget
is earmarked just for payment
of interest on the country's
debt," he said. The recently
proposed budget for 1979, he
said, will push the gross
federal debt to an "UNBE-
LIEVABLE" $873.7 billion.--
"Every homemaker inthe
country knows you can't spend
more than you make month
after month," Rish said. "It's
just plain, common sense."
The U. S. Constitution
allows a constitutional con-
vention to' be called when
requested by two-thirds of the
states. The convention's pro-
posed amendments become
valid when ratified . by. the
legislatures of three-fourths of
the states. .
"Our country's growing
debt is, a major cause, of'
.inflation, sagging economy,
high interest rates, and the
unemployment that results,"'
Rish said .
"Once Florida takes the,
first step toward stopping this,
foolish practice, I think,
enough other states will join ,
in," he said. "So far the.
federal government hasn't"
been able to straighten out its
own finances, so it looks like
the states will have to do it."

Think how the course of history
-would be different if the Phillistines
:had talked the Israelites into ban-
ning the use of rocks in David's
slingshot. Golliath might have per-
severed and defeated the Israelite
army and the course of the Bible
- would be changed.
The Phillistines had just as
Much right to demand the abolition
of the use of rocks in David's
slingshot as the Russiphs have today
to demand that the United States not
develop the neutron bomb.
David, you remember, went to
the brook and picked up just the
right rocks. He examined them and
picked up three smooth pebbles. He
knew what would fly straight and
true and do the job. The job was to
kill Golliath. He would be just as
dead if David had managed to cut off
-his head with a sword or toss a spear
through his chest. But David could-
:n't deliver the blow from the sword
or the thrust from the spear because
of the sheer size and the armor of
.Golliath, The only thing which would
put him on a par with GoIath was
the three small pebbles.
The pebbles were deadly to
Golliath and the Phillistines could
very well object to their use, which
would remove their main advantage
against the Israelites. Though Gol-
liath would be just as dead from the
sword or the spear, he had the
means to protect himself from these

The neutron bomb, in our opin-
ion, would be our "pebbles" against
the "Golliath" Russia. The big Bear
can't defend itself from the neutron
bomb, though it will not kill a man
any more dead than a shell out of a
cannon, a bullet from a rifle or a
machine gun, or three small round
pebbles. When a man is dead, he is
dead, no matter from what the
We cannot see our nation giving
away an advantage when we know
we are up against an adversary
which ordinary means of defense
may mean our enemy can adequate-
ly defend himself. Our enemies,
whoever they may be, are out to
destroy us, just as Golliath was out
to destroy the Israelites by whatever
means he could.
Our nation should do just as
David did; select the weapon and
projectile which will get the job done
and arm ourselves with it.
If we are defeated in the future
from a lack of the proper weapon to
defend, ourselves with, are those
nations now shedding crocodile
tears over our proposed develop-
ment of the neutron bomb going to
help us out? Will they fight our
battles for us who will be so ill
equipped to defend ourselves? We
think not.
We see it as our duty to defend
ourselves by whatever means we
can, whether it is the neutron bomb
or something even more effective.

I had always thought that
the principal of our school,

Mr. Herring, was a modest
and humble man. The other
day, he went out to the rifle
range with an ROTC class and
you should have heard him
bragging about how well he
shot. The only trouble was that
he shot worse than ole Bob,
which isn't something to be
proud of.



Almost without exception, a group of people
can be sitting around watching a bunch of small
children playing and someone will remark, "I
wish I had all that energy."
Little kids will roll, tumble, run, jump and
twist almost without pause while in the process
of playing and having a good time.
I have several small grandsons which will
amaze me with their seeming tirelessness. But,
when they stop, they seem just to fall asleep in a
second in whatever shape they happen to be in.
This proves they are not entirely tireless.
If I were to pick an example of energy which
I would like to have, I wouldn't look to the small
children, as active as they are. I would look to
the dollar weed and wish I had the perseverance,
stamina and survival capabilities this lowly
weed has.,
A dollar weed seems to be indestructible. I
know they are in my yard.

And, too, a dollar weed seems to thrive on
~"" anything you put on it. This spring, we got a
truck load of ground bark fines to put on our
Dr grass in the back yard to give it a kick. What
kicked? The dollar weeds. The grass is acting
like it hadn't received a thing. Fertilizer will
mental have the same effect, though the grass will turn a
ed in little greener.
o this We sprayed the dollar weeds last fall with
ing to poison. This year, they are back more prolific
is a and hardy than ever,
our- The case which convinced me I would like
it this the stamina and perseverance of the dollar weed
Health has been enacted since the poisoning and bark
ghbor spreading sprees. The first load of bark didn't go
oor to too far, so we got another one. For the past two
ith. I weeks the second load has been sitting in the
)usl. back yard, about 12 feet long, five feet through
socia- and four to five feet high.
rt b Guess what's coming out of the top of that
abuse pile of bark? Dollar weeds, of course. I knew
ion of there were no weed roots in the bark fines, so I
some dug into the pile a ways and found.that the dollar
child- weeds had grown up from the ground, through
ded to four feet of bark and came out the top in two
weeks time. That's perseverance.

son That isn't all: last fall I parked behind the
Motel St. Joe to attend a civic dinner meeting at

noon and happened to notice one of those paper
barrels of roofing tar lying on its side there on
the ground with the top open and a blob of tar
hanging out on the ground. The tar was probably
four to five inches thick in this particular spot
and there, big as life, green as a gourd, healthy
and sprightly, sprang one of the largest dollar
weeds I have ever seen. The weed had
penetrated the tar and was doing well in a
medium which would kill most other plant life it
had covered up.
When you cut off a dollar weed's sunshine,
its air and other vital necessities to the growth of
most plant life, it just gets busy and rises above
its adversities.
A dollar weed is tough.

That's why I wish I were as active, as
resilient and as sturdy as a dollar weed. I tend to
run up against things I can't overcome. At these
times, I just have to abandon some intentions
because the obstacles are too great. If I were as
tough as a dollar weed, I would just find some
way around the problem when I am short of
money, when I am tired out and with still more to
do, when I run up against the constant brick
walls of adversity which all of us face.
If I could perform the synonym of growing
up through a barrel of tar like that dollar weed
did, I could do just about anything I wanted to
without worrying about any limitations I may
It seems the only way to try and overcome
the dollar weed in my yard is to try and cultivate
it. That usually works in getting rid of anything I
want to flourish and do well. Maybe it will also
work with the dollar weed.

Regardless of how much of a nuisance we
may consider this common weed in this part of
the country, you still have to admire it. It doesn't
lay down and play dead easily.
As hardy as it is, I suppose if we left it alone,
the dollar weed would soon take over this land
mass we live on and its aquatic cousin, the water
hyacinth, would do the same for our waterways.
Man just .isn't in the running as far as
proliferation goes, when he compares himself to
the dollar weed.

"Florida Highway Patrol.
"The sooner drivers realize

highways will be."
Records indicate that of
355,183 speeding arrests last
year, troopers arrested 9,380
truck drivers and 425 bus
* drivers for exceeding 55 miles
per hour in 1977. Speeding
arrests were up 29 percent
Over 1976.

The First Amendment is for
Not the press.
Read it closely:
"Congress shall make no law ..
abridging freedom of speech or of
the press." The phrase ". . freedom
of speech . ." is clear enough.
It is totally for you. It is for
every American whether he works
for a newspaper, a radiq or televi-
sion station. "Freedom of Speech" is
your right to speak up, to say what
you believe no matter what the
government, the High Brass, the
President himself, may say or do.
You have freedom of speech because
"Freedom of Speech" is right there

in the First Amendment for You.
So what about "Freedom of
Speech and of the press?"
Our forefathers put the two
together for a reason. They knew
one is nothing without the other.
What is the press?
If you write a letter, make a few
copies of it and send them to your
friends or anybody else, you're
exerting your right to put "in print"-
your Freedom of Speech. For exam-
ple, today most of the weekly
newspapers in America do not own a
press. They rent the use of one.
Today it's easy to rent time on a
copying machine and put out any
kind of "press" you want to. So,

again, freedom of the press is your
It has another dimension; just as
Freedom of Speech does. The other
dimension of Freedom of Speech is.
first, your freedom to listen. After
all, what good is freedom to speak up
if anyone who listens will be jailed
for listening? So freedom to listen is
a part of freedom of speech.
So, the First Amendment is for
you. It gives you the right to speak
up, to print, to go to press, on a
copying machine or over a speaker
system to broadcast. And it gives
you the right to listen and to read,
both. But that isn't all, it gives you
the right to know what public

records are saying, what your public
officials are saying and doing in
using your power and your money.
All that and more.
Sure, the newspaper reporter
gets the information for you. You
don't have time to go to the
courthouse every day to find out
what's changed since yesterday. But
reporters working for you through
the press do that for you.
Because they do, too many
people believe the First Amendment
is for them - the press alone.
Nope, it isn't.
It's for you.

A Specialty From The Sea
Stonecrab crab claws from Florida are a uniquely delicious
treat that can be enjoyed as an hors d'oeuvres, a fancy
dinner entree, or a quick family supper. Purchased fresh or
frozen, stone crab claws are cooked and ready to serve.
Since freezing raw stone, crab claws causes the meat to ad-
here to the inside of the hard, protective shell. the claws are
cooked immediately on.-landing' \ * -',
The stone crab has the unusual' ability i regenerate its
claws as often as two or three times during its lifetime of
approximately three years. Florida law takes advantage of
this ability and protects the, stone crab population by making
it illegal to harvest the whole stone crab. The claws of the
crab may be removed, provided the length is at least 2-3/4
inches. The whole stone crab is then returned to the water.
The most unique quality of the stone crab is its ability to
provide complete eating enjoyment. Its sweet, delicate
flavor, combined with easy and quick preparation make it a
champion for the most discriminating tastes. To serve stone
crab claws, steam the claws if you prefer them warm, then
crack the shell. Whether you serve them warm or chilled on a
bed of ice, stone crab claws can be served with clarified
butter, a quick hollandaise sauce, or try this special sauce
from the Florida Department of Natural Resources, Hot
Mustard Sauce. They are sure to become a favorite in your
2 cup sour cream
112 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
12 teaspoon parsley flakes
1,s teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients. Heat, stirring occasionally. Do
not boil. Makes approximately two-thirds cup sauce.

Do-it-yourselfers get two kinds of satisfaction: a beautiful project,
and a bunch of money saved.
But it takes money to save money. Lumber, light fixtures, fabric and floor coverings
don't come free. Neither does a well-equipped workshop - for paneling a den,
refinishing furniture or building a garage.
The beauty comes in Florida National's installment financing.
You get the money you need, and pay it back in one low payment a month.
With Florida National's help, you can have fun, save moneymake your home

Watch Where You Put Those Signs

Florida merchants and poli-
tical campaigners are re-.
minded by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation the
placement of signs and dis,
play of sale of merchandise on
state-owned right of way is
both illegal and hazardous.
Recent proliferation of signs
and roadside sales stands in
some areas has prompted the
FDOT to call attention to state
outdoor advertising law and
the state transportation code
which prohibit encroachment
on state right of way.
Not only do signs and tem-
porary stands on state right of
way violate state law, they are
a sight obstruction and a
potential traffic hazard for the
'motoring public.
The department requests
cooperation of the business
community and itinerant ven-
dors in removing any signs or
other structures placed on
state right of way. It is in the
owners' best interests to re-
move any offending structures
and relocate them properly or
reclaim the materials. Other-
wise state maintenance forces
are authorized to remove and
dispose of all signs and struc-
tures violating state law.
As fresh vegetables and
fruits come in season, FDOT
must contend with roadside
vendors who display and sell
their wares on state right of
way. State law specifically
states it is unlawful to make
"any commercial use of the
right of way of any state-

maintained road, including
With statewide political
campaigns in the offing, cam-
paign workers are cautioned
that Florida law prohibits the
posting of political signs on or
above any state right of way.
The Department of Trans-
portation is anxious to cooper-
ate with the public in explain-
ing what outdoor advertising
is and is not permitted. An
Outdoor Advertising Adminis-
trator is headquartered in
each of the department's five
districts and should be con-
tacted by anyone wishing to
place advertising or sales
outlets near state-maintained


It was reported by The Star
several weeks ago that Port
St. Joe High School had been
burglarize d the incident
was under investigation by
officers of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department and Port
St. Joe Police Department.
In a joint news release by
Sheriff Murphy and Chief
Griffin, it has been reported
that all of the property taken
in the burglary has been re-
covered, after having traced
some of the property to Hous-
ton, Texas. Two juveniles
have been arrested.

Bible Notes

I PETER 1: 14-16 NAS
(14) "As obedient children,
do not be conformed to the
former lusts which were yours

Holy One who called you, be

T read a passage of scripture
where Jesus says He cares for
me. In this passage He says
because He is holy then we are
also holy. That is if we have
accepted Jesus as our savior.
Being born again is the re-
quisite for us to obtain all of
God's blessings of course.
Here the Christian is called
His children and He ad-

before being, saved. Every-
thing we do should be holy

This is an area that satan
goes all out to defeat us in. The
devil does not want us to know
that through Jesus the Christ-
ian is victorious. I Peter 5:8

warns us that the devil is our
adversary and is prowling
about just looking for trouble.
Again God's word says our
fight is spiritual. But God has
covered all aspects of our
lives. If we do sin, and the
word conformed (Verse 14)
means don't be habited to sin.
I John 1:9 says, "If we confess
our sins, He is faithful and
righteous to forgive us our sins

majoring in marine biology,
and everyday, in addition to
his books. John brings a
shopping list which represents
the wants and needs of nu-
merous otherwise stranded
elderly members of his com-
"I'm coming ovyer-anyway,"
said John. referring to the
130-mile roundtrip to Panama
City, "and it saves someone
else the trouble." So far, he
has saved people the trouble of
picking up prescriptions, auto-
mobile parts and even tropical
fish. The fish were needed to
fill an aquarium in the Apa-
lachicola High School library.
On one occasion he even
brought .someone to see a-
doctor. That someone was
Quincy Limber, a spry 80-
year-old who needed to see a
physician. John took him to
the doctor and then went to
class. During a break from his
classes, however, he went
back to check' on Limber to
make sure that he had gotten
lunch and was well taken care

casually says in a manner that
makes it perfectly clear that
he really does not mind ex-
tending a helping hand.
Since August, his "errand-
mobile," a 1972 Datsun, has
recorded over 15,000 miles.
Each day he spends two hours
and 40 minutes behind the
steering wheel.
Once home, his day is not
over. There are cars to be
repaired. Wasmund's father
repairs cars and daily John

John also studies. He main-
tains a 3.6 (B+) grade
average in a very demanding
math and science program
and according to at least one
of his instructors, "he is one
of my brightest students."
"An education is something
no one can take away from
me," said Wasmund.
"It's important to me."
Obviously, a lot of other
things, including people, are
also important to John
