FORTY-FIRST YEAR, NUMBER 41


Industry - Deep Water Port - Fine People - Safest Beaches in Florida

PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDtAk2456 THURSDAY, JUNE 15, 1978


Oak Grove System,


Waiting for Test


Gulf County's inspector on
construction projects, E. F.
Gunn, told the Commission
Tuesday morning that the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer ser-
vice is virtually finished and
&' could be put into ,service
within a couple of weeks, "But
nobody is on the job now
working'to finish up the small
jobs which remain in order to
" get the service to the people".
Gunn said all that remains
is to run one lateral service to
.a dwelling, repair one visible
leak and test, chlorinate and
sterilize the water system
before people can tie onto it.
Gunn said he anticipated no
problems which couldn't be
solved in just a short while but
said, "There is no one on the
job to do these small chores
which must be done.'"
He said the sewer service is
ready to operate just as soon,
,as electric power can be
attached to the lift station
serving the-area. He said this
was about a half day job.
While Gunn was presenting,
his report,. Board attorney,
William J. Rish entered a
telephone call to representa-
tives of Dependable Insurance'
Company, in Atlanta, Ga.
Dependable is the bonding
company.which took over, the
job when the contractor quit
some few months. ago. Rish
posed the question as to when
the contractor would be back
on the job.
After the phone conversa-,
j. tion, Rish reported he was told
the contractor would be back
at work on Wednesday (yes-
terday).
: Engihee Slevb'Nations also'
.'-' reported to the Board that the
contractor has reported run-
ning,-services for 154 custo-
mers. Nations said the initial
count when' the .system was
started was 142.
Gunn was instructed by the:
Board .to stay on top of the
project and keep the contrac-
tor working to complete the
project just as soon as possi-
ble.
NEW PRECINCT
Mrs. Dessie Lee, Supervisor
of Elections asked the Board
Tuesday if they had .made a
decision. on her previous re-
quest to establish a twelfth
voting precinct in the Howard
Creek settlement. Mrs: Par-
ker said she had been request-


ed by the residents to create.
the precinct to keep them
from having to drive all the
way to Dalkeith in order to
vote.
The Commission had asked
their attorney to research
their move in the matter.
Rish reported Tuesday that
it was a federal law that no
new precincts be created with-
in three years of a federal
census year, since the pre-.
cincts are the basis ofsetting
up census-taking districts.
Rish said he had requested the
Secretary of State to grant a
waiver of. the ruling in this
case but that he was not very
hopeful of a favorable reply.
Rish said he was also re-
*searching the possibility of
allowing voters in one precinct
.to vote in two different polling
places, thus allowing another
voting machine to be stationed
in Howard Creek settlement
as well. as in the Honeyville
area for Precinct Three. Rish
said he would have, some
official word on this question
within a week.
FUND REQUESTS
The Commission had Iwo
requests for increased contri-
butions to largely federally
financed operations within 'the
county.
First, Ned Ailes, director of
the Gulf County Guidance
Clinic asked that their contri-
bution be increased from $1,-
,150, which has been amount of
participation by the court for,
the past several years, to
$3,000. Ailes said the service
anticipated a budget of $129,-
000 next year, 75 percent of
which' MwlBe"'jYMi8'"b the'-
federal government.
Ailes said the service has
had a 40 percent increase in
client contact during the past
year. He said their budget
would be increased by about
$10,000 over last year, and that
with the new fund request, the
county would be contributing
about two percent' of their

facility already in operation.

Youth Nearly Drowns

In 'Accident At Pier


An unidentified boy was a
near drowning victim at the
City Pier Monday night, ac-
cording to Port St. Joe Police.
According to police records
an unidentified caller reported
to the dispatcher that he
thought someone was dead at
the Pier. Upon investigation,
officers- found the victim,
conscious but groggy, lying on
the ground near the boat
basin. Assistant Investigator
Bob Lightfoot administered
first aid. The youth was then


transported to Municipal Hos-
pital for further treatment by
the Volunteer Ambulance
Squad.
According to investigators,
the youth slipped and fell into
the boat basin, hitting his head
on a foreign object in the
water.
The accident was investi-
gated by Investigator David
Rogers, Lightfoot and Patrol-
men Phil McLeod and Oscar
Jones.


St. Joe Monday afternoon,
according to Port St. Joe
Police Department.
The young boy, Tafearia
Hutchinson of Clearwater.
dashed out in front of an
automobile driven by David F.
Jackson of Port St. Joe,
according to police investiga-
tors.

The accident report shows
the car was travelling west on
Avenue A, when the boy ran
out into the path of the car. He
was taken to Municipal Hospi-
tal for treatment by Gulf
County Volunteer Ambulance
Service. His injuries were
reported to be slight.

No charges were filed in the
accident.


Some 600 citizens heard
Lieutenant Governor Jim Wil-
liams say that Gulf- County
stood a good chance to get
federal aid in two huge devel-
opment projects here in the
Port St. Joe area if they could
cooperate and unite in an
effort to secure the projects.
Williams made his statement
in a public meeting held last
Wednesday evening in the
Coliseum of the Port St. Joe
High School.
Lt.. Gov. Williams, head of
the Economic Development
Administration of the State of
Florida said, "It all depends
on what you want to do. There
will be nearly a quarter billion
dollars spent in Florida in the
next 'two years to bring new
jobs to the state. The South is
getting highly productive in
grain and a port facility here
is beginning to' look like an
attractive 'venture."
CHANCE OF BRIDGE
Williams made no bones
about it. The main attraction
to getting people to the meet-
ing was the bait of what is the
state's position to getting a
new high rise bridge over the
Gulf County Canal at Highland
View. The Lieutenant Gover-
nor said there was little to no
chance the bridge would be
replaced for strictly traffic
purposes.
"If you should be successful
in attracting this new port and
a proposed huge seafood pro-
cessing and service industry
to this area, your chances are
that you will get your bridge."
Williams offered his help in
securing designation as the
location for the seafood plant,
help in securing all federal aid
possible to get a port approved
here and customers lined up to


An artist's conception of
the sought-after new high
rise bridge across the Ca-
nal, the proposed port and
seafood complex is on dis-
play in, the lobby of the
Post Office. Anyone inter-
ested in inspecting the plan
is invited to do so.

use it and to get the high rise
bridge.
FIRST MOVE
He said the first move was
to get funds approved for the
study of whether a port is
feasible here or not. This
.study money comes from the
Coastal Plains Administration
at the request and by the
efforts of the Apalachee De-
velopment Council. Williams
pledged his efforts to get this
study funded just as quickly as
possible.
Williams said, "From my
point of view, the project
deserves to be studied and if it
has merit, it should be done".
George Tapper, who has
been the driving force to weld
public opinion together in
requesting the bridge and
supporting the port and sea-
food plant concepts along with
the bridge, stated, "The Fed-
eral and State governments
don't want to put anything
here unless the people want it.
And the people must express
themselves and bend their
efforts for the projects".
NO LOCAL MONEY
Tapper pointed out, plainly,
that construction of a port nor
the seafood project would cost
any local tax money. He
stressed the port would be
built through revenue bonds
which would be paid off by


port operations alone. The
seafood project is a plan of the
Federal government to aid
seafood producers all along
the Gulf coast and will be
funded by the government.
"Not one red local cent will
be involved in either of the
projects", iTapper said.
"This is the one natural
resource you have which can
be developed and it should
be", the civic leader went on
to say.
PATE APPEALS
Mayor Frank Pate brought
applause from the crowd by
giving a revival-like appeal to
the people to work together in
all the projects. "It will mean


You

more jobs and more money for'
all of us and our children", he
said.-Pate described the plan,
as outlined by Tapper and
being pushed by government
and civic leaders from all over
the county, as the area's "last
chance to be something be-,
sides a small paper mill
town."
Williams wasn't the only
official voice to stress the
importance of cooperation and.
support by local people -in
order to see the considerable
development come to a real-
ity. Representatives were also
on hand including: Harvey
'Cotton, representing Gover-

Pridgeon Turns In


Final Tax Count
With all taxes now collected and tax certificates
sold, Tax Collector Harland 0. Pridgeon reported to fthe
County Commission Tuesday that his office had
collected a total of $2,026,591.73 on the 1977 tax roll.
Pridgeon gave the Board a breakdown on where the
tax money went, with the Gulf County School Board
getting the lion's share.
Of the $2,026,591.73 Pridgeon was charged with'
collecting, he turned in only $1,954,315.53. The remainder
was deducted for discounts earned by early payment,
errors and insolvencies and uncollected taxes of $334.89.
The money was distributed as follows:
School Board ..................... $953,930.27
General Fund (County) .......... 508,116.10
Fine & Forfeiture (County) ...... 101,321.43

The Lion Shall Lie


S.Down with the Lamb


In.Isaiah, it tells of the day when
the lion will lie down with the lamb
and at that time, man will be in
!harmony with his fellow man.
Last Wednesday night, Lieuten-
. ant Governor Jim Williams told the
people of Gulf County they would
. have to accomplish that prediction
'in Isaiah, if they were to get the
impetus to make this county support
its people and its children with jobs.
SWilliams said the people of this area
must be of one accord if they are to
obtain the aid necessary to accomp-
lish the recently announced goals of
securing an active port here, a giant
seafood handling and supply com-
plex and the necessary high rise
bridge across the Gulf County Canal
:at Highland View to allow unre-
:stricted traffic to and from these
*proposed facilities.'


"There can be no dissension
among the people", he said. When
someone asks you about the com-
munity and its plans, one must
speak well of them because you can
never tell when one of the feasibility
study people will.be talking to you
for, an opinion on the plans.
Surely, for something so impor-
tant as securing the future for our
children to work in our community
at good paying .jobs, we can do
nothing less than cooperate and
speak only well of the projects.
Cooperation is the key to pro-
gress of relations between lions and
lambs as well as the key to progress
among the men of our area both now
and in the future.
Let's not blow this opportunity
to exploit the only really exploitable
asset we have.


demanding that government furnish
every service imagineable, with the
government paying the bill.
The people of :California have
finally awaken to the fact that
nobody pays government's bills but
the tax payer.
We can head off such a trauma-
tic experience by not demanding
that government hold our hand,
financially, in all that we wish for
ourselves.

ties of their choice.


Dear Sir:
As a former social worker
who truly loved and cared for
my aged and disabled char-
ges, I was very happy to read
about the work of Rep. Billy
Joe Rish, D., Port St. Joe, in
starting the program for home
care for the elderly. If Billy
Joe ever runs for the presi-
dency, I'd like to be his
campaign manager.
It has been a source of
bewilderment to me as to why
taxpayers are so bitterly op-
posed to extending benefits to
the elderly so that they can
live out their years in dignity
and comfort. We no longer
have extended families; our
mobile society has thrown
the old folks out of the family


benefits. But as surely as
Death and Taxes, there's only
one way to keep from growing
old and losing one's place in
'the social order and that's to
die at an early age. I personal-
"ly would rather see my tax
dollars go to make life worth-
while for the aged and disa-
'bled than to see it frittered
away on the illegitimate off-
spring of Mexican girls who
cross the border in droves at
the first labor pain, so that we
'can support them and their
`offspring for the next genera-
tion and perhaps for succeed-
'ing generations as well.
During my years as a social
worker the most heartbreak-
ing thing I had to do was to try
to convince an elderly person

circle. Perhpas many are
unwilling to see tax dollars go
to programs for the elderly
because they don't realize that
they too will be elderly some-
day, and may need those same


that he or she must leave a
beloved home, fraught with
the memories of a lifetime,
and enter the impersonal
environment of a nursing
home. Regardless how well


that nursing home may pro-
vide for the client's physical
needs, it can not give what the
elderly need most; person-to-
person love and concern. In all
my months of trying, I con-
vinced only one client that he
should go - and then only when
he became too weak. to walk
across the street to the restau-
rant where he bought his
meals. Then he came to me
and said, "I'll go to the rest
home now - if you'll see that
I'm admitted to the one my
mother is in." (The man was
78, his mother was 95.) This
was done.
I could tell some blood-chil-
ling stories about how old
people who are incapable of
self-care must live in inde-
scribable filth, becoming ha-
zards to themselves as they
grow weaker and weaker. But,
no one wants to be reminded of
what may lie at the end of the
road for us.
The worst thing about send-
ing an elderly person to a
nursing home is that he or she
knows it is a halfway house
between his or her own home
and the mortuary - a port of
last resort. So the nursing
home patient loses the desire
to live, replaces it with com-


Wednesday Is Sacred


Dear Sir:
As a pastor in Gulf County I
am in great anguish because
our leaders undoubtedly do
not believe that Wednesday
night is a sacred time for St.
Joe. I know the arguments for
having meetings on Wednes-
day night, yet what price our
children will pay. How many
of them are being taught that
prayer is a problem solvbr? It
seems that we are teaching
our children that money and
men are the great problem
solvers in life.
Yet Ben Franklin knew that
the men who were writing the ,
Constitution could not create a
government, so he asked them
to pray to the 'One who could
create a government. They
did, consequently the outcome
was the Great Compromise
and the Constitution.
I used to encourage people
to go to school on Wednesday
night because an education is
so important, and yet so many
times the result has not been
the great good that' I envi-
sioned it to be. Why? Because
when we don't call upon the


Lord, and when we don't
repent, the Lord does not hear
about our needs, such as a
bridge, or the joy and happi-
ness that a better education or
job should bring.
Jerry Norwood, in his
speech to the Senior class
quoted from the Bible that if
we would repent, turn from
our evil ways, He will hear our
voice and heal our land.


Since God can heal our land,
He can give us a bridge. My
prayer is that we keep Wed-
nesday night a sacred time for
all people to pray, and let the
other time we have be used to
bring in the Kingdom of God,
,which, I believe, would in-
clude a better education for all
and better bridges.
Respectfully,
Wm. E. Smith, Jr.


Letters Like This One

Make It All Worthwhile


Dear Mr. Ramsey:
I would like to thank you and
your staff for the help you
have given Wetappo Scouts
this year. To some people the
news from area troops isn't
front page material, or a
social affair, and not even a
sports event. But you make us
leaders feel what our troops
are accomplishing is impor-
tant and newsworthy. The
girls are always excited to
read about their adventures


and achievements published
in the. Star. To us, this is the
best advertising possible for
Scouting, and it's all Free
Press!
Next year I hope to see
articles in many -editions of
the Star focusing on building
young girls futures thru Girl
Scouting.
Again, Thank you!

My husband John (formerly
of Port St. Joe) took over
where I left off in caring for
the' elderly; when the aged
and disabled were turned over
to computers, I left social
work. John now works for the
agency that took over this type
of work - the Social Security
Administration, where he is a
Service Representative. Like
me, he loves, and cares what
happens tb our nation's aged
and disabled citizens.
He therefore joins me in
sending this letter of com-
mendation to thank Rep. Rish
for having implemented a
program which indicates that


(ICorinthians 3:1-2) "And I,
bretheren, could not speak
unto you as unto spiritual, but
as unto carnal, even as unto
babes in Christ. I have fed you
with milk, and not with meat:
for hitherto'ye were not able to

table." (I Cointhians 13:11)
"When I was a child, I spake
as a child, I thought as a child:
but when I became a man, I
put away childish things."
Paul, the apostle, is writing
here to Christians. In this
particular case to the church
at Corinth, but it also applies
to all Christians from then
until now and beyond. Of
course, there are many pro-
blems inside the established
churches today, but one of the
great problems is that of
people who have come into the
salvation experience and then
just sat down. Paul says he
could not even discuss spirit-
ual things with them but only
fleshly (carnal) subjects.
Now it is true that a new
Christian should be nurtured
with basic spiritual truths
until he is spiritually mature.
But you know there are pro-
fessing Christians you cannot
even discuss spiritual things
with. Now, fishing, the wea-
ther, or ballgames are fine,
but not Jesus! This was frus-
trating to Paul. And it is a
must for the church today to
become "upset" by this lack-
adaisical attitude of the pro-'
fessing Christian. Paul goes


Floridians have compassion
for and care about their
elderly citizens, who deserve a
place of honor in our world
which they have lost because
we are a youth-worshipping
society.
If there were more men like
Rep. Rish and Sen. Robert
Dole (he is the benefactor of
the disabled) to enact legisla-
tion such as that which im-
plemented the home care
program, this might become a
safer nation in which to com-
mit the heinous crime of
growing old of becoming inca-
pacitated.
Thank you, Floridians, for
caring.

ETAQIN SHRDLU

BY WESLEY R. RAMSEY


WHETHER ONE IS for or against the
further development of the Apalachicola River
shipping channel, you would have to chalk up one
point for those who would further develop
against those who would leave the river as it is.
In an article arguing the pro's and con's
argued by Dr. Robert Livingston and Addie
Summers in the Tallahassee Democrat two
weeks ago in the Sunday issue of the paper, Ms.
Summers definitely did Dr. Livingston in, .in
making points for her side while Dr. Livingston
continued to spout generalities and listing no
concrete reasons for saving the river which one
could hang his hat on.
On the other hand, Ms. Summers gave
several very valid reasons why development
would be to the interest of the residents of the
Florida residents living along the river.
If the river is to remain as it is, I'm afraid
we're going to have to get an advocate other than
Dr. Livingston to argue the point.


-IN DR. LIVINGSTON'S side of the argument
he made only two points in about a column of
type. He pointed out that the river was already
open to barge traffic an average of 82.9 percent
of the time from 1971 to 1976. This seems pretty
good to me. Nothing is 100 percent certain. It
would seem there would be a question of
economics as to whether the small percentage of
shipping time gained would be worth the
expenditure. Dr. Livingston baso made a good
point when he stated, "No matter how many
times an area is saved, it can be destroyed only
once,"'That's a telling point but only tells us that
we should examine the manner of development
planned for the river.
In making his points, Dr. Livingston goes on
to say, "The Apalachicola system is important to
various people . . ." It's also important to those
shippers who want to use it.
,The Doctor says, "The exaggerated benefits
from damming and channelization have a hollow


ring. In the end, jobs in Florida that have a
unique cultural heritage will be exchanged for
industrial work upriver in Georgia and Ala-
bama." If I were one of those in semi-poverty
from one of those "unique cultural heritage"
jobs, this paragraph would mean to me that Dr.
Livingston is trying to say, I have a choice of a
river and my present condition and the chance of
changing the river with a job at which I can
make a decent living. There's really no choice
there.
Dr. Livingston uses as one of his last punch
phrases, "Ultimately, the long-term outlook will
depend on the pride of the local residents in
maintaining one of the last natural river systems
in the country." If one followed Dr. Livingston's
advice, even those "natural" uses of the river
such as honey farming, hunting, worm harvest-
ing, sports, fishing, recreation, etc., which Dr..
Livingston speaks so fondly of, would see their
use of the river seriously curtailed.

ON THE OTHER HAND, Ms. Summers hits
hard and to the point with the phrase, "The six
river counties need jobs." Who'll dispute that?
She points to the increasing acreages of grains in
the tri-state area as one of the panaceas for
solving this job problem.
. Ms. Summers states, "We would not want to
exchange seafood production, of course, for
agricultural and industrial benefits. However,


we are not impressed with the "evidence" Dr.
Livingston uses to convince oystermen that a
small dam 78 miles upstream would harm
Apalachicola Bay."
Neither are we impressed.
Dr. Livingston's own research department
has publicly stated that all the nourishment
which goes into Apalachicola Bay comes from
the river watershed within 25 miles up-river of
Apalachicola.
Ms. Summers says there are greater threats
to Apalachicola Bay than a proposed dam 78
miles up-river and cites developments in Tate's
Hell Swamp and St. George Island, all within the
25 mile food chain limit of Apalachicola Bay.
I think, if we're basing whether or not to
develop the river on the basis of what it would do
to Apalachicola Bay, we should not overlook a
statement made by Ms. Summers in her article,
when she writes, "Apalachicola oystermen are
being told that oysters and barge traffic cannot
thrive together. Yet Louisiana produces far
more oysters than any other state, and at the
same time supports more barge transportation."

I THINK the "Wade-in" between Ms.
Summers and Dr. Livingston was no contest. Ms.
Summers made by far the best argument for her
point, whether or not one agrees with bh
ultimate aim.

Centuries later, the eye reap-

percent of the GCCC operating
budget is derived from state
funds and 26 percent from
student fees.
An increase in both. he said,
was required this year to
"continue to offer top quality
educational programs and
services for the citizens of our
three-county district in light of
the rapid growth we currently


are experiencing."
The GCCC District Board of
Trustees voted this month to
increase tuition by $1 per
credit hour for Florida resi-
dents. S2 per credit hour for
non-Florida residents. Even
with these increases. Gulf
Coast's fees remain below the
state average and below those
charged by other northwest
.Florida community colleges.
However, the local board
has no control as to how much
the college will receive from
the state.
"Early in the session it
looked as though GCCC might
well receive the lowest state
funding per student of all of
the community colleges," Dr.
Tyree commented. "But that
was before the members of the
district's legislative delega-
tion went to work for us."
Dr. Tyree continued, "we.


are deeply indebted to our
local legislators for their un-
derstanding of the roles the
community colleges play in
the public education system in
general and the efforts and
needs of Gulf Coast Commu-
nity College in particular."
In recognition of their im-
pending retirement as mem-
bers of the Florida House of
Representatives, Dr. Tyree
was especially complimen-
tary of Representatives Billy
Joe Rish. Port St. Joe, and
Earl Hutto, Panama City, for
the vital support the College
has received from them dur-
ing their entire tenure as
elected officials.
Dr. Tyree stated that "no
community college anywhere.
in Florida or elsewhere
throughout the entire country,
could have been as blesbed as
Gulf Coast has been in having
two dedicated, concerned, ta-


lented.' and influential men-
like Billy Joe Rish and Earl
Hutto go to bat for them."
Rish. chairman of the House
Judiciary committee and a
close associate of Speaker Don
Tucker, "time and again used
his considerable clout to help
meet the needs of our Col-
lege," according to Dr. Tyree.
"Whether it was the defeat of
an unfair funding formula, the
passage of proviso language in
the Appropriations Bill to.
assure salary increases for
our personnel. or the procure-
ment of funds to transport
students from outlying areas
to our main campus. Billy Joe
Rish was always there when
we needed him 'over the
years."
At the current time, Rep.
Rish is attempting to persuade
the Division of Community
Colleges to increase GCCC's
projectecd growth rate, on


which next year's state fund
allocations have been based,
to a more realistic level.
"The 'Division projected us
to grow by only 2.97 percent
next year when we know we
have grown approximately
11 p66E~ i'is year," Dr.
Tyree observed.
Rep. Hutto served not only
as a member of the House
Education Committee but also
as chairman of the House
.Post-secondary Education
Subcommittee.
"From these vantage
points," indicated Dr. Tyree,
"Earl kept us posted on a
daily basis. He was in a
position to wield considerable
Influence in matters related to
Florida's publicly-supported
colleges and universities and
that is precisely what he did
for us. More than that, it was
simply impossible for any
state legislator to have been


more accessible to us than
was Rep. Hutto."
Dr. Tyree credits both Rish
and Hutto with Gulf Coast's
improved funding prospects
for next year.
"Without their bird-dogging
in our behalf, without their
constant support, and. their
considerable influence among
riot only their legislative col-
leagues but also among the
Tallahassee bureaucrats, we
clearly would be facing finan-
cial uncertainty next year at
best, if not financial doom,"
Dr. Tyree commented.
"Mr. Rish and Mr. Hutto
showed themselves to be mro-
del. legislators," Dr. Tyree
added. "Gulf Coast sincerely
appreciates all they have done
for us over the years as our *-
State Representatives and we
will certainly miss their high-
ly effective voices in Talla-
hassee."


Low income families will
get a cost-of-living increase in
food stamp allotments on July
1, Assistant Secretary of Agri-
culture Carol Tucker Fore-
man has announced.
Assistant Secretary Fore-
man said all food stamp
households in the continental
48 states and the District of
Columbia, including single
persons, will get larger allot-
ments. The monthly allotment
for a family of four, for
example, will increase from
$174 to $182. The July 1
adjustments are based on
March food cost data.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) by law
must adjust food stamp allot-
ments twice a year, on Jan. 1
and. July 1, in line with food
price changes reported by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics in
the Consumer Price Index.
Price changes are reflected in
the cost of USDA's Thrifty
Food Plan, which figures how
much low-income families
must spend each month to
purchase a nutritionally ade-
quate diet. Food stamp allot-.
ments equal the cost of the
Thrifty Food Plan for each
household size.
Larger stamp allotments
mean that income eligibility
standards also must be adjus-
ted, Ms. Foreman said. Under
current regulations, the limits
on monthly net income go up'
when food stamp allotments
are increased. For a'family of
four, the new monthly net
income limit will be $607, up
from $580.
New food stamp legislation
signed last fall by President
Carter changes the method for

The following lists monthly
net income limits, effective
July 1,. for the 48 states and
District of Columbia:
One-person households -
$277.
'Two-person households -
$363.
Three-person households -
$480.
Four-person households -
$607.
Five-person households -
$720..
Six-person households- $867.
Seven-person households -
$953.
Eight-person households -
$1,093.
For each additional house-
hold member of eight, add
$140.

eason ... Get Ready


If you do not evacuate when
advised to do so you may need
to get to a safe shelter.
If you are a boat owner find
safe mooring for your craft
now and plan to move it there
well in advance of the hurri-
cane's arrival. If you can
trailer your boat locate safe
storage space for it. In the
event of heavy flooding, it
could float away.
Trim dead tree limbs and be
sure antennas are secure.
These can become deadly
missiles in hurricanes. Put
away lawn chairs, trash cans,
portable grills and other loose
objects around your house.
When you first hear of a
developing storm keep track
of it. It will help you to stay
ahead of any warnings.


Hurricanes mean damage
from wind and water plus a
day or two of isolation. You
and your family must be
prepared to go it alone. Make
sure you have everything you
will need will in advance?
Material for protecting win-
dows and glass doors, non-
perishable food, containers
filled with drinking water,
flashlights, matches, candles,
portable radios and TV and
fresh batteries. These items
get in short supply ahead of an
approaching hurricane.
If Gulf County should
come under a hurricane watch
stay tuned to your local Radio
and TV stations.
Keep alert, ignore rumors
and be ready to carry out your
personal hurricane plan.


few have suffered the fury of a
direct hit., There is just one
way to keep hurricane deaths
anrd damage at the lowest
possible levels - preparedness.
What are you up against in a
hurricane? Water and wind.
The threat occurs in this
order; storm surge, the
storm's greatest killer-; wind
damage, possibility of asso-
ciated tornadoes and inland
flooding caused mainly by
torrential rains.
In order to be prepared
work out a hurricane plan for
your family. The simplest
plan is to lock things up and
visit friends on higher ground
or in another part of the state
away from the warning area.
If you plan on staying in the
area, determine the elevation
of your area. Storm surge can
produce flooding of up to 24
feet above high tide in Gulf
county depending on the
storm's intensity and the di-
rection that it approaches the
area from.
Learn the safe escape routes
inland. Review them with
your family and plan to' use
them.
Leave mobile homes for
more substantial shelter. De-
termine well in advance the
location of official shelters.
Gulf County Civil Defense
officials can advise you 'where
the nearest shelter is located.

Apalachicola River National Sanctuary


The Apalachicola River-Bay system has
been preliminarily accepted as a National
Estuarine Sanctuary by the Federal Office
of Coastal Zone Management, Jay Lan-
ders, Secretary of the Florida Department
of Environmental Regulation, announced
today.
In a letter to DER, Robert Knecht,-
assistant CZM administrator, said that
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration had approved DEWs applica-
tion for a National Estuarine Sanctuary
Preliminary Acquisition Grant of $50,000.
Knecht said the purpose of the grant'
money is to develop appraisals of land


proposed for purchase; to coordinate
local, state and federal planning efforts for
the sanctuary's land and water areas; and
to prepare research and educational
programs.
The.Preliminary Acquisition Grant re-
presents the first of three years of funding
which go toward the final establishment of
the sanctuary. Land acquisition and
development of research facilities are the
thrusts of the second and third years of
funding.
According to Landers, some 12,000 acres
of land are being proposed for purchase for
inclusion in the sanctuary. The state


currently owns some 32,000 acres within
the proposed area. That land was pur-
chased by Environmentally Endangered
Lands (EEL) bonds. The total land area of
the proposed sanctuary is approximately
44,000 acres, including acreage on St.
George and Little St. George.,Islands.
Additionally. nearly 135.000 acres of
water area are to be part of the sanctuary,
Landers said.
An estimated $3.2 million will be needed
for land purchases, accordingjto the DER
secretary. More than $1.8 million of the
estimated funds will come from federal
sources, with the remainder coming from


the state's EEL program, which is
administered by the Florida Department
of Natural Resources.
Once federally recognized, the Apala-
chicloa River-Bay system will be preser-
ved as a unique example of an estuarine
environment. This in turn will protect the
River's water quality and seafood indus-
try, which accounts for more than 90
percent of Florida's oysters, Landers said.
"Recognition of the Apalachicola River
system as a National Estuarine Sanctuary
comes at a particularly critical time," he
said, "since the Army Corps of Engineers
is once again exploring possibilities of
damming the River."


Girl Scouts Sharing Special Programs


Before the last dues were
S taken and the supplies stored
until next year, members of
Girl Scout Troop 118 were
sharing special programs with
their Sister Scouts. On May 23
special guests were members
from Brownie Troop 305. Fly-
up Brownies heard about the
Junior World of Scouting and
were invited to participate in
the regular troop meeting
activities. Rainbow, Daisy,
and Colt Patrols gave their
friends ideas from past meet-
ings and shared experiences
enjoyed at Camp Eleanor.
To begin a special Fly-up
ceremony Mrs. Shaleen
Smith, leader of troop 305
introduced each candidate
and pinned her with new wings
insignia. Junior Scouts pre-
, settled them with huge yellow
wiigs for their journey to
Junior Scouting. As each
Brownie arrived she was pin-
ned. by a Junior with the
official Girl Scout trefoil. Old
and new Juniors joined in a
Circle of Friendship and re-
newed their promise. After
refreshments with friends and -
family members the special
meeting adjourned with a
make a wish closing. Fly-up
* BrOwnies participating were
Debbie Davis, Lisa Handley,
Ti�, ,eber and Donna Young.
Another occasion for troop
celebrating was a Bridging
Ceremony held for Scout Sonia
Boswell who was advancing to
th#: Cadette level. A special
guest was Cadette Cynthia
Miller from Troop 248. She
was a participant in a recent


Government Seminar held in Scout neighborhoods in Flor
Tallahassee for girls from all ida and shared this experience

Dessert For A Perfect Ending


r- with Troop 118 through photos,
e souvenirs, and a short talk.
As a part of the Bridging
Ceremony she introduced Ca-
dette Scouting and demonstra-
ted the badges and insignia
worn by these members. She
began Sonia's journey by
lighting a candle from Troop
118 to help her find a way on
the stepping stones of Cadette
achievements. When Sonia'
completed her journey she
was given a Cadette Cockade
for her beret from her Sister
Scouts. During refreshments,
while most members dried out
from the soaking received in
" the summer shower, many'
memories and much laughter
and friendship was shared.
A final farewell in the 1978
year was the awards cere-
mony for members of -Troop
118. Cookie patches were pre-
sented to 11 girls for selling at
least 36 boxes of cookies
during the spring sale. Cookie
Chairman for the troop, Mrs.
Jody McLeod, also received a

Rep. Hutto Candidate for Congress


Stating that he is in tune
with the people of Northwest
Florida, State Representative
Earl Hutto has officially an-
nounced his candidacy for
Congress from the First Con-
gressional District. He said in
his three terms as a legislator
he'has remained close to the
-people, listening to their pro-
blems with an understanding


heart, and helping with the
solution of those problems.
Hutto, formerly a sportscas-
ter. and newscaster with
WEAR-TV in Pensacola and
WJHIG-TV in Panama City,
says Bob Sikes is a legend in
his:own time and will be hard
to replace, but is confident he
will be a good Congressman of
which the people can be proud.
"In Washington I will not be
out to climb the social ladder,
but will be there to do a job.


My life style is quite different
from that of many in high
public office", stated Hutto, "I
am not lavish and I enjoy
living the simple family life
that is typical of most North-
west Floridians, so Iwill be
able to relate to them and
understand their needs."
.Hutto believes he can do as
well as anyone in maintaining

the military establishments in
Northwest Florida. He says a
strong defense is absolutely
essential for our national se-
curity and he will fight to keep
it strong. Additionally, he said
he will work with local com-
munities in helping to acquire
much needed industry.
As Northwest Florida's only
member of the House Educa-
tion Committee, Hutto has
worked during his six years in
the legislature to provide
