The coming fall elections
will be the first ever held in
Gulf County where paper bal-
lots will not be used in any of
the 11 precincts scattered
, thruout the county. Action
taken by ihe County Commis-

that all precincts cast their
ballots on voting machines.
The action was the purchase


of three more machines by the

Committee Approached

State Officials Yesterday
A local committee composed of Mayor Frank Pate,
SCounty Commissioner Billy Branch, Chamber of Commerce
president John Miller, Southeast Fisheries representative
Gene Raffield and former Senator George' Tapper went to
Tallahassee yesterday afternoon to make the first official
overtures to secure approval of a new high level bridge
across the Gulf County at Highland View.
The group had an appointment with Governer Reubin
Askew, Lt. Governor Jim Williams and the Director of the
Department of Transportation to put before them the
concern of local citizens concerning the future of the bridge.
The appointment was for 2:30 p.m., yesterday afternoon
and no results of the confrontation were available at press
time yesterday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.




Schools Shift


Administrators


In a special meeting held
i last Thursday morning, the
Gulf County School Board
made several' administrative
personnel changes in the Port
St. Joe- school system. The
' changes involved administra-
tion in all three Port St. Joe
area schools. ,
In a surprise move, the
Board shifted Ken Herring,
principal at Port St. Joe High
School for six years, to. the
Highland View Elementary
School where he will serve as
principal. Herring is the
youngest top school adminis-
trator, in years of, service, in
south Gulf County.
Filling Herring's place as
principal, will be Edwin Wil-
liams. Williams was principal
of Washington High School-


when it was closed several
years ago and went to Port St.
Joe High as assistant princi-
pal, where he has served since
that time.
i Mrs. .arbarbar., Sirley, who
has been assistant at Port St.
Joe Elementary for the past
four years, was moved to Port
St. Joe High School as assis-
tantprincipal. Howard Blick
will remain at the Elementary
School as principal and that
school's only administrator.
In other personnel matters
before the Board last Thurs-
day was the resignation of
Guidance Counsellor Sarah
Riley at Port St. Joe High
School. Mrs. Riley has served
in the Guidance office at the
High School ever since there

COURTHOUSE RENTAL
An agreement for rental of
1400 square feet of office space
in the old Courthouse in We-


wahitchka to Health and Re-
habilitative Services is still
undecided. HRS says they are
now paying no more than $4.00
to $5.00 per square foot in
rentals in this area and the
county wants to charge them
$5.50 plus utilities in the latest
offer made. The HRS turned
down the offer saying their
present facilities are adequate
for their needs, at a lesser
cost.
HRS now has offices in
Wewahitchka and is trying to
decide whether to move into
the old Courthouse, stay in
their present, less convenient
site, or move to Panama City.
Commissioner Everette
Owens made a motion to rent
the space to HRS at a rate of
$8,000 a year, with the county
paying the utilities. Bill
Branch seconded the motion,
but it never passed as the
Chairman, Jimmy Gortman,
then suggested the Board set
up a special meeting with "the
one who will say 'no' or 'yes' "
within the week, to talk about
the matter:


STONE MILL CREEK
Residents of the Stone Mill
Creek subdivision had a rep-
resentation at the meeting
Tuesday night, asking for
work on the road leading into
the subdivision.
Serving as spokesman, W.
C. Robinson said the area was
promised work on the road
two years ago, hinging on
securing a right of way 'to
make the main road a full 60
feet in right of way in order to
give room to build a proper
road. At present, portions of
the right of way are only 30
feet wide and pose a bottle-
neck in road improvement
plans. Robinson asked if any
progress had been made in
securing the easements.
Chairman Gortman said two
property owners, the Gaskin
and Ed Pridgeon estates still
had not given easements.
Robinson said, "It's your
job to get the easements, but
we are willing to help. We're
willing to go talk to the land
owners and even come up with

and realized at the last minute his load was
too tall. He stopped as the load hit the bridge
and attempted to back off and turn around.'In
turning, a set of wheels under the trailer
broke loose, lodging under the trailer bed,
blowing out both tires. The truck was stuck
there, broadside in the highway, until repairs
could be made. ---Star photo


Bridge Opening Delayed


The Department 'of
Transportation told The'
Star yesterday morning
that it will be impossible to
open the Highland View
'bridge for any kind of
traffic today, as was stated
at a public meeting last
Thursday night.
DOT engineer James Bu-
chanan told an audience in
the Courthouse that possi-
bly the bridge could be
opened for light traffic
.today, but now this is found


Sto be impossible, according
to a conversation with the
area DOT office yesterday
morning.

The DOT office said it
has found more complica-
tions with the repairs. It
was found this week that
the bridge is out of line and
must be repaired by DOT
bridge crews later this
week before the span can
be opened to any kind of
vehicle traffic.


The DOT representative
said crews are now work-
ing 24 hours a day to get it
back into operation.
The representative said
'that if no more complica-
tions arise the bridge pos-
sibly will be opened to
traffic by Monday after-
noon.
Language used by the
representative of DOT did-
n't encourage one to count
on it too strongly.

there and they were all agreed on a need to replace the bridge with a high rise

Crowd Unanimous In Wanting New Bridge Built At Highland View


An overflow crowd gathered in the
Courtroom of the Gulf County Courthouse
Thursday night to offer their support and
express their interest in trying to
convince the State of Florida to construct
a high rise bridge over the Gulf County
Canal on Highway 98 at Highland View.
Acting on the request of the Gulf
County and Port St. Joe Commissions,
George Tapper served as master of
S ceremonies and outlined what such a
bridge would mean to the Port St. Joe
area and Gulf County in general. Tapper
told the group gathered that a new high
rise bridge not only would solve the
Recurring problems with the present
draw span but it would enable a port
planned for the area to have ample room
to expand and would allow uninterrupted
traffic in and around the port without


disturbing highway traffic.
Tapper explained that the Port Au-
thority has people interested in using a
deep water shipping port here if such a
facility can be provided. He pointed out
that J. C. Belin, President of St. Joe
Paper Company has committed his firm
to selling the Port Authority, at a
reasonable price, 23 acres of waterfront
property, adjacent to the Canal and west
of the present bridge. Tapper explained
that there is a golden opportunity for the
Authority to work for securing container
shipping through the local port and also
establishing a "Free Port". He explained
there were no such water shipping
facilities between Tampa and Mobile and
"We're a natural for it", he said.
Tapper pointed out that with a high
rise bridge, existing port plans could be


expanded to the east side of Highway 98
with a high level bridge allowing rail and
truck traffic to pass underneath the
bridge between the two pieces of land,
thus combiningtthe port operations.
SJPC WANTS TO LEAD PARADE
The former State Senator drew loud
applause from the crowd when he said,
"Mr. Belin assured me that St. Joe Paper
Company was ready to lead the parade in
developing Port St. Joe and Gulf County
and this port is the first step along this
line". Tapper went on to say, "I predict,
that after this bridge is built, that within
five years, there will be no need for
young people to leave Gulf County in
order to find jobs."
Tapper pointed out that the bridge
would not be built if the people did not get


behind the move in a united effort. "After
the repairs are made to the present
bridge, it will operate better than ever
before and if we don't shout loud, we'll
not get a new bridge". He pointed out
that land had been set aside by St. Joe
Paper Company two years ago to be used
for a new bridge, "So land is not a
problem".
The speaker went on to point out that
the bridge could be built with no increase
in the state's road budget. "There is
money available to replace antiquated
bridges under 70 percent federal and 30
percent state financing. We just have to
convince the State of Florida that we
need and want this bridge replaced. It
won't take any of your money, but it will
take a lot of your work", Tapper said.
Tapper pointed out that leaders of


government and civic bodies met in his
office Monday afternoon of last week and
agreed to do what they could to push a
petition signing program in order to let
the authorities know the feelings of
people in this area. "You can help", he
said, "By getting every organization you
belong to, church, civic, fraternal,
unions, whatever, to sign these petitions
and let us present them to Tallahassee
and Washington to get the job done."
Tapper said he would be taking the
petitions, along with civic leaders to the
authorities within two weeks to get the
ball rolling.
"When we talk to our Congressmen
and Senators, we want to be able to show
them the people of this area are
demanding relief", he said.

my Pitts reported to the crowd that he

DOT and received their promise that no
expense would be spared in getting the
bridge back in operation for traffic just
as soon as humanly possible.

For Fr

Monday is Memorial Day, and
the day on which we honor our war
dead.
On each Memorial Day, the
Speakers ask the question of whether
or not it, was a waste of young
manhood to sacrifice them in a war.
S Here in the United States, our wars
have been fought in the interest of
- freedom for mankind. Even the,
unpopular wars in Korea and Viet-
nam were for the freedom of those
unfortunate nations.
We believe the sacrifice was
worth it. True, we didn't have to
make that sacrifice and maybe, in
This situation, it might be easier for
-: us to make this statement. But, we
Sdo think the sacrifice was worth it.
Looking at the papers recently,
our position was bolstered by the
fate of the Russian physicist Yuri F.
Orlov. Orlov spoke out against his
nation's violations of human rights,
Sa basic freedom here in the United
States, which we take for granted. It
was this freedom, mainly, for which


ed, it would have not been used to a
great extent until this time. Now,
there are potential customers of a
port here, waiting in the wings to use
it and use it considerably.
Now is the time to pursue its
construction.
They tell us it takes a war to get
the spin-off of medicines and techno-
logy to give mankind a better living
standard. Evidently, it takes a
considerable inconvenience, such as
the bridge over one of the two main
arteries into Port St. Joe being out
of commission, to make us pool our
efforts to accomplish something for
the good of the community.
We hope people of this area will
make a concerted effort to sign the
many petitions scattered about this
part of the county to call for the state
to build a new bridge at Highland
View. Not that we'll particularly
need a new one, they tell us, after the
present one is fixed, but for visioned
side effects of our children having a
job at home in the future.
It'll be worth the effort.


eedom


we have fought every war we've
ever been in.
As a reward for his efforts,
Orlov's government has placed him
in exile in Siberia for five years and
given him seven years at hard labor.
This penalty for speaking his convic-
tions. If this were the case in
America, half the nation would be
imprisoned.
Orlov will probably never come
out of prison. If he does, he will be a
broken man.
Just as surely as our American
war dead were sacrificed for the
cause of freedom, something men
never knew about until the United
States was born, Orlov was also
sacrificed for freedom.
On Memorial Day, we hope
Americans will remember Orlov
and others like him as well as our
own war dead. If we examine
Orlov's position, who is more dead,
Orlov or the Americans who lie on
some battle field or in a military
cemetery?


Makes Offer of Trade of Water Wants Finance Partners


Front Property for Equal Value to Sponsor Programs
Dear Wesley, In their recent newsletter,


Dear Editor:
I regret that Dave May
decided to use the news media
to express dissatisfaction with
the construction of a cottage
by myself and Dr. Gibson on
the shore side of the highway
on St. 'Joe Beach. I especially
regret that he used the water
system formerly owned by
him and his associates as a
means to get across his point.
I have known for quite a long
time that he did not have a
water system at St. Joe Beach
and the water system referred
to was the one at Mexico
Beach. The owner of this
system had indicated his
desire to extend it to Beacon
Hill and St. Joe Beach. In any
event, the source of water was
not important in the granting
of a variance by the State.
Dave May has known for
many years that there are


LETTERS

to the Editor
/-


certain building sites on the
shore side of St. Joe Beach.
These sites have been in
existence since 1951 when the
property was purchased by
Mr. Kenney; however, for-
tunately it is provided that
buildings can be constructed
only at 300 ft. intervals on lots
provided for that purpose and
there will always be ample
access to the beach.
Dr. Gibson and I paid as
much or more for our lots as
Dave did for his property
adjacent to the highway; how-
ever, we have discussed his
concern and have agreed to
make him an offer. A


mutually acceptable apprai-
ser or appraisers can be
retained to appraise our lots
and his property and we will
trade him our lots for that
portion of his property adja-
cent to the highway that the
appraiser or appraisers agree
is of equivalent value. This
offer will remain in effect for
ten days from the publication
of this letter.
By his signature, Dr. Gibson
concurs in this offer and in the
content of this letter.
Very truly yours,
Cecil Costin, Jr.

Registered Nurse Feels Older


People Happy In Nursing Home


It was years ago when I was
young and full of pep- a
-Florence Nightingale serving
humanity. On one particular
morning I was on duty on a
small convalescent ward of a
444 bed hospital, making beds.
It was a pleasant little room
for five older women patients.
Mrs. Tarsey wrote a letter;
Mrs. Tichner sat, cross-legged
in the middle ,of her bed,
mending a garment and
crooning a southern spiritual
in a rich contralto and Mrs.
Tillman lay quietly watching
us all. Two empty beds waited
for patients whose names
began with a "T".
My heart full of pity for the
poor old soul (she may have
been 45), I approached Mrs.
Tillman. "Sorry to bother you,
but I'll have to change your
bed."
She looked at me kindly, her
eyes full of understanding.
"Honey chile," she said,
"Don't feel so sorry for us.
Don't you know we never had
it so good? I've worked all my
life- hard. I never had a
chance. to just sit and do
nothing and watch other
people work. I'm just exactly


where I want to be." At my
look of astonishment, she
added, "When you get to be
my age, you'll understand."
Now that I am far beyond
her age, I do understand and
see that little room as a haven
for people in out of life's
storms.
Come to think of it, they
were watching me work.
Maybe they were feeling sorry
for me.
So when I hear people
talking about "those terrible

HEBREWS 13:15-17 KJV
KEY WORD: SACRIFICE
(V-15) "By him therefore let
us offer the sacrifice of praise
to God continually, that is, the
fruit of our lips giving thanks
to His name." (V-16) "But to
do good and to communicate
forget not: for with such
sacrifices God is well
pleased." (V-17) "Obey them
that have rule over you, and
submit yourselves: for they
watch for your souls, as they
that must give account, that
they may do it with joy, and
not with grief; for that is
unprofitable for you."
One of the meanings of
sacrifice is "the act of making
an offering in worship." All
too often we equate "sacri-
fice" with the loss of some-
thing we love or enjoy.. But
here in Verse 15 God's word is
definitely not talking about
loss but gpin. We are to make
an offering to God of our
praise. Not just occasionally
but "continually."
What is praise? It's the fruit
(talk ) of our lips giving
thanks to His Name. But there
are two more sacrifices which
also please God. We are to do
good to others, which is a
sacrifice. We are to
"communicate", that is talk
Jesus to everyone, (Verse 16).


In Verse 17, some writings
refer to "them that have rule
over you" as "teachers."
Those that have responsibility
for our spiritual growth we are
to be submissive to. Because
they are accountable to God
for our growth we must be
careful not to make their job
difficult. For if we grieve our
teachers it will cost us and
them joy and peace. We need
so very much to be all God
would have us be. The act of
continually praising God is
necessary to our growth
spiritually.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

BY WESLEY R. RAMSEY


ANOTHER LEGEND HAS BIT THE DUST.
We have always been told that Indians and their
ponies can ride and ride and ride ... and never
tire or grow sore and weary. As a matter of fact,
we have been told, through legend and stories
written by men who specialized in stories of the
old West that the Indian would survive through
sheer stamina and go for days without rest or
water.
The Indian was tough.
But, alas, the white man has also done him in
physically as well as chased him off his property.
The Indian is no longer the tough piece of soul
and leather he was in olden days.
Neither is the white man, for that matter.
The white man's idea of a tough environ-


ment, including me, is to have to spend a day in
the summer without the air conditioner working.
We've forgotten when none of us had air
conditioning. We've forgotten the ice pack, the
funeral home fan, the oscillating electric fan
which use to be a fixture in all households. Where
we once walked to get from one place to the
other, we now do it for exercise.
One could expect that of the white man. He
was a creature of comfort from the word go.

TO THINK THAT AN INDIAN would
succumb to the soft life of the white is almost
more than a legend-loving body can bear. But we
have evidence that the poor Indian is now just as
soft as most white men. He has become the


"tamed savage" as the frontiersmen use to brag
about.
There is evidence of this debilitation of the
Indian. Last week, a quartet of once-hardy
Creeks, headed from Cairo, Georgia, to Wash-
ington, D.C., to claim some of their lands back,
feeling they were illegally taken. The Indians
had to stop in Milledgeville, Ga., after only
slightly over 100 miles of travel, to rest and
relax.
They, and their horses, were worn out.
Does this sound like the Indian you have read
about?
Does this sound like the plains warrior who
could ride, walk, run, trot or crawl for days to do
in a white man or get away from one?
What's the deal here? What has happened to
our hardy red warrior who was the terror of
droves of white men who use to huddle in wagon
trains or forts in fear of their lives.
Would those white settlers have feared the
red 'man so much had they known just how
delicate he was?
You won't see a white man starting to
Washington and having to stop in Milledgeville
and rest up. He'll just hop a jet and go all the way
in one jump across the map. No resting or


relaxing there.
What has happened to


our noble savage?


AND WHAT ABOUT HIS HORSE? In the
stories of the old West the Indian pony was an
animal made of sinews like steel. He, like his red
human counterpart, could go for days on end
without respite.
From what we read about our D.C.
travellers and their horses, the horses were in
worse shape than the red men.
An animal control officer up in Milledgeville
said the Indians should have conditioned their
ponies before taking them on such a ride. I
thought an Indian pony was always ready to go,
at top speed, anywhere the Indian wanted to go.
Too, this officer suggested the Indians
should have changed their saddle blankets
periodically to keep from chafing the pony's
back.
That does it: you dan't fool me. That's not
Indians or Indian ponies riding to Washington.
It's just someone trying to get hold of some land
by demand.
I know this is so, because Indians don't use
saddles on their horses, and thence, have no need
for saddle blankets, dry or not.

said. "I just wanr to tell you that Rep.
Rish is stepping down at the end of this
term to spend more time with his family.
He is on the go all the time and I can
sympathize with his decision. I just want
to tell you now, that we're losing the best

when we lose Billy Joe Rish."
RELIEF PROMISED
DOT engineers, James Buchanan and
Barney Alsobrook, Out of the Panama


pie Want A New Bridge


City office, were present at the meeting
and promised some relief from the
estimated three weeks of non-operation
for the bridge.
Buchanan explained that locks which
hold the bridge in place had been
removed at some time in the past. He
said if the locks had been left in place, as
the engineers thought they were, it would
have not been necessary to close the
bridge. "This is why we didn't give any
full closing time in our schedule of
limited operations", he told The Star in


an interview later. Buchanan said the
bridge work being done was performed
by specialized people and their number is
limited. "We are stepping up the work
but can work only 10 to 12 hours each day.
The efforts by your representatives will
allow us to pay overtime and work over
the week end, which will speed the
project up." He said it was already ahead
of schedule. Buchaqan said that under
the new plans, the bridge should be open
to light traffic no later than Thursday of
this week.

There were aircraft used for

"Ther eor e landings an

Made for

the Waves


We call the Star Cat the
Beach Catamaran because she is
made for the really big waves. She glides over the
swells, and at 18'4", she makes daysailing fun and
comfortable. You can really fly without hanging by
your teeth or getting all sopping wet. This boat is really
fast in a good breeze, yet stable enough to make even
the inexperienced skipper look good and feel comfort-
able even in rough weather. For the Thrill Of A Life
Time call St. Joe Sailing Service and try out the all new
Star Cat 5.6.

ger, George Knight, received
minor injuries and were trans-

LIBRARY MONEY
Mrs. Jane Patton, Regional
Library Director presented
the Commission with a check
in the amount of $2,775 Tues-
day night. Mrs. Patton said
the money was a semi-annual
payment to the County of state
matching funds, which will be
used in library operation. The


District Librarian said the
check reflected an increase in
state participation in library
funding.
Mrs. Patton pointed out that
their expenses for the county.
libraries were running $30,000
for the year. The county had
budgeted only $20,000. Mrs.
Patton said that through state
funds and other sources, the

deficit and may be able to
make that up before the year
is over.

a dilemma about what to do
about reckless driving on the
beaches in the Inaian Pass
area and still leave the beach-
es open to traffic to allow
fishermen to travel to their
favorite fishing spots.
Sheriff Ken Murphy advised
the Board they had no regula-
tions at all about driving on
the beach in these areas. "If a
person is driving in a reckless
manner, we have no laws by
which to make his arrest. He
can drive anyway he likes on
the beaches at present. Why
not just pass an ordinance
making it a misdemeanor to
drive recklessly on the beach-
es, then we can arrest reckless
drivers when complaints are
made. At present, our hands
are tied".
The Board asked their at-
torney. Fred Witten, to pre-
sent them a sample ordinance
at their next.meeting.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business,
the Commission:
-Heard request from Sher-
iff Murphy that some action be


taken to repair the air condi-
tioner in the Courthouse and
Jail. Sheriff Murphy said the
system was particularly un-
satisfactory in the Jail portion
of the complex.
-Heard a complaint from,
Hubert Stripling that the alley
between Duval and Madison in
Oak Grove had been stopped
up by residents so other
residents couldn't use it. The
Sheriff was asked to aid
Commissioner Everette Ow-
ens in getting the residents to
remove their obstacles.
-Projects Administrator
Tommy Pitts reported the
water and sewer system at
Oak Grove would be tested for
leaks and cleaned out in
preparation for use beginning
Wednesday.
-Officially joined the Apa-
lachee Regional Planning
Council' and named Leo Ken-
nedy as the county represen-
tative to the organization with ?
Jimmy Gortman as the alter-
nate. The 'appointments are
effective for the remainder of
the fiscal year.


Board would endorse the note.
Herring said the note would be
repaid from funds made by
the organization through
money raising projects and a
surcharge on the game ticket
prices.
The Board all expressed a
desire to help the "Gator
Backers" if they legally could
do so. Board Attorney, Cecil
G. Costin, Jr., advised the
Board that they should post-
pone giving a definite answer
until he could research the
legality of the proposition. The
Board decided to follow the
advice of their attorney.
OTHER MATTERS
In other matters the Board
decided that the day of school
lost recently at Port St. Joe
High by power failure would
be made up on June 12, the day
following the official end of
school. This day will be used
for pupils to come get their
report cards and turn in
books.
In another action, Superin-
tendent of Schools Walter
Wilder announced that the
district had received an addi-
tional $13,000 from the State of
Florida, other than anticipat-
ed, and suggested that the
money be paid, on an equal
basis, to all teachers in the
County having 15 or more
years of service. This would
give those teachers about $300
each.

dump trucks and it is present-
ly loading lime. He said past
policy of the Board had been to
refrain from hauling lime in
the big trucks. After discus-
sion, the Board directed the
Road Superintendent to haul
lime in the big trucks and
clean them daily. The Chair-

sioner in charge of the various

In a "first great step in

themselves," Rep. Billy Joe

presented the first check from
the State's new Home Care for
the Elderly program.

ficials from the State Depart-

lowance under the. program.
Mrs. Gay will receive monthly
payments to help pay for-food,
clothing and other necessities.
She is also eligible for extra


approval or disapproval ot a
Nursing Home at Port St. Joe.
Comm. Branch told the
Board he would like for the
Board to purchase three
voting machines, one for
Howard's Creek, Overstreet,
and an extra for emergency
purposes. He said the factory
reconditioned machines offer-
ed to the Board with a three
year guarantee were a good
buy. The Attorney advised the
Board that if the same type
machines as were presently in
use were being purchased
then bids were not required.

Board purchase three recondi-
tioned machines from Auto-
matic Voting Machines, Inc.

ment. Comm. Kennedy sec-
onded the motion and it passed
unanimously.

ing repair of the streets in Oak

"It pleases me no end to be
making this, presentation,"
Rish said. "Our elderly citi-
zens have made great contri-
butions to this State. It's about
. time we started paying them
back by helping them live
normal lives."
Under prior practice, Mrs.
Gay would have been eligible
for the monthly payments only
if she entered a nursing home.
Rish conceived and shepherd-
ed through the 1977 Legisla-
ture a program that allows the
payments to elderly citizens


being stockpiled at the Land-
fill in the Longview Subdivi-
sion at a later date.
Upon motion. by Comm.
Branch, second by Comm.
Owens, and unanimous vote,
the Board approved Resolu-
tion 78-6, requesting the
United States Army Corps of
Engineers to perform mainte-
nance and dredging to make
Corley Slough navigable. It is
on file at the Clerk's office.
The Board received notice
.of the closing of the Highland
View Bridge for maintenance
purposes.
The Board received daily
inspection reports 200-209 on
Sthe Oak, Grove Water and
Sewer Project and 38-39 on the
renovation of the Courthouse
Building.
The Board received notifi-
cation that the boiler and
machinery insurance policy
premium had increased from
$469 to $515 per year.


who are able to live with
relatives or friends. Mrs. Gay
lives with her daughter, Mrs.
Elvira French.
Rish said he was inspired to
start the program after his
father, Roy, died last year
after ten years of declining
health. "It is a great consola-
tion to me that my father's
last years were spent at home
under constant and loving
care," Rish said. "Wlhile he
was with us, I realized that
others among the elderly pre-
ferred to stay at home or' in
their communities rather than
spend their last years in a
nursing home.
Under Rish's guidance, the
Legislature appropriated
$500,000 for two pilot projects,
one of which includes counties
in the Big Bend area. In a
short, time 15 to 20 of Gulf
County's elderly will begin
receiving checks which will
enable them to be cared for at
home. In his district (No. 9) he
expects about 60 will qualify.
Rish said many families,
especially in the low and
middle income classes, can't
afford to take care of their
elderly members at home.
They are forced, he said, to
put them into nursing homes,
where the State helps pay the
cost.
"Under this new program,"
he.said, "these folks can stay
at home with their loved ones
and live more normal lives.
Everyone is happier and
better off."
