of cultivated marijuana grow-

Sunday morning.
According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy,'the Department was

through an anonymous phone

came from one of the ones
involved in cultivating the
plants.
The Sheriff said that a
thorough search in the area
where the plants were report-

Martin turned up a field of 70
healthy plants, each from.five
to eight feet tall. "There were
at least another 100 plants in

Sheriff Murphy said, "But
over.a period of ,time, these
had been pulled, dried and

Hearing

for Branch

4 Bank Held
The Comptroller's office of
the State of Florida held a
public hearing yesterday at
* the Gulf County Courthouse,
considering a request by the
Wewahitchka' State Bank* to
place a branch bank here in
Port St. Joe. -
The Comptroller had pre-
viously turned down a request
by the Wewahitchka Bank for
a branch and a request to form
a n6w bank here by a local'
group of businessmen.
Yesterday's hearing was for
the purpose of taking testi-
mony as to the probable need
for the branch.
Branch banking is now per-
mitted in Florida within the
county of the parent bank.

up.
The plants were in a pine
thicket near Wetappo Creek
near the Pleasant Rest Ceme-
tery Road.
Sheriff's Deputies harvested
the plants Sunday and brought
the plants to the Sheriff's
Department office for im-
pounding. The plants were
later destroyed.

Union and management are
still at a stalemate after six
weeks of a strike against

to Bo Boyette, plant manager.
Boyette told The Star yes-
terday the last talks were held
between the union and com-
pany two weeks ago, but that
no progress.toward a settle-
ment of the dispute has been
made.
The union and management
are divided on the amount of

The Food Stamp Office will
be closed on Monday and
Tuesday, July 3rd and 4th. It
will re-open on July 5th opera-

.After Thames' letter was
read, Commissioner Everett
Owens made the suggestion
that Civil Defense duties 'be
turned over' to the Shdriff's
office and that a part time
director be hired for the
Veterans' Service Officer.
Commissioner Billy Branch
countered Owens' idea with
the suggestion that a full time
Veterans' Officer be hired,
with no secretary. "That way.
we will have to pay only one
person, rather than pay a part
time director and a full time
secretary for the office".
Owens said he liked the
idea, but let his motion stand
to get the feeling of the Board
on his thought. The motion, to

Star Awards

The Star won a third place award for its story and
Pictures on the'St. Joe Paper Company "Super Tree"
nursery last year. The award was for excellence in
reporting on agricultural activities.
SThe Star also received honorable mention for its
editorial page with the notation that "Is is gratifying to
see a small home town weekly newspaper editor writing
his own editorials and a weekly column". Many do not.
The awards came from the Florida Press Association
annual Better Newspaper contest. The contest is
conducted state-wide among Florida newspapers with a
panel of out-of-state judges making the selections.
This year, there were 1,147 entries from 77 Florida
weekly newspapers of all sizes.
The awards were made at the annual Press
Association Convention in West Palm Beach.

several small leaks to repair but are expected
to have the repairs made in just a short time.


FHA Sets Loan Closing for Oak Grove Water & Sewer


A water and sewer service
for Oak Grove comes closer
and closer each day, with tests
currently being made to the
P:es and a notification to the
Cutnty Commission by Far-
mers' Home Administration
that the loan for the. system
will be closed on July 21.

Reports to the Commission
Tuesday night were that the


water system is now ready to
go, but several ,small leaks
still remain in the sewer
system to be repaired. Work-
men for the construction firm
doing the job are currently
searching out and repairing.
these leaks and are expected
to be finished in just a few
days.
The report, furnished' the
Board by their job inspector,


E. F. Gunn stated that there
were several small leaks in
the sewer system, but "noth-
ing serious". The main prob-
lem is to find the leaks.
Repair is a minor matter.
In the meantime, the County
has been notified by FHA that
they are ready to close the
loan and notified the County to
have its Attorney, Chairman
and Clerk in Tallahassee on


July 21 at 2:00 p.m., to finish
the financial arrangements.
Commissioner Everett Ow-
ens asked Attorney Rish to
once again contact the bond-
ing company responsible for
finishing the job, to be sure the
streets are repaired after all
the leaks are found and re-
paired.
Owens said, "We need to
know now, so we can hold back


enough money for us to make
repairs if the bonding com-
pany doesn't plan to". Owens
wanted work to begin immed-
iately after underground work
on making the street repairs
and said if the bonding com-
pany wasn't going to take
immediate action, the county
should go ahead with the
work, charging the company
for expenses involved.


According to Clerk George
Y. Core, customers in the Oak
Grove community will not be
delayed until after financial
arrangements have been com-
pleted before they can begin
hooking up to and using the
system. Core said a notice will
be sent out and people can
begin hooking up immediately
after the leak problem is taken
care of.


Gulf Has Good Chance At Landing Seafood Center


According to Gene Raffield,
who attended a meeting of the
Coastal Plains Regional Coun-
cil last week, Port St. Joe and
Carrabelle are the finalists in
a the running for the govern-
ment-sponsored seafood cen-
ter to be encouraged some-
where on the Gulf Coast.
Raffield said Port St. Joe
' had an edge because leaders
from this area have already
been making contacts with
Coastal Plains and the South-
east Fisheries Association,
who is anxious to get -the
center started.


Raffield met with and made
a report to members of the
Gulf County Commission and
the Port St. Joe City Commis-
sion Thursday morning to
make his report and ask for
help from the government
agencies to get support and
information together to give
Coastal Plains in support of
Port St. Joe's designation as
the seafood marketing center.
Raffield said that everyone,
especially the present seafood
producers, would: have input
into the plans in order to have


a fighting chance at landing.
the center.

Raffield explained that the
only role the government
would play in the plans would.
be to pay for the feasibility
study of a need, much of which
has already been done by the
University of Florida, and to
help in property acquisition,
preparation of the land site
and waterfront facilities, such
as dredging and docks. "The
rest will be private capital
invested by firms interested in
supplying the needs of fisher-


men and marketing their pio-
duct". The center would ser-
vice the needs of fishermen
from Texas to south Florida,
"And the need is consider-
able", Raffield said.
The center would not crowd
present seafood production
facilities, already established
here, out of the way, Raffield
explained. The idea of the
center is to provide services
not now provided fishermen
along the Gulf Coast.
"There is seafoodd produc-
tion going to waste every day,


just because of a lack of ice",
Raffield said. He pointed out
that the larger producers,
such as his firm, manufacture
their own ice, but have none to
sell. "There is a crying need
for ice production along the
Gulf", Raffield said.
Other- possibilities for the
center could be a boat repair
ways, equipment sales and
service, fuel, freezing facili-
ties, canning, packing, pet
food plants, marketing cen-
ters, etc.
SPORTS CENTER
The center would not be


limited to commercial fishing
services, according to Raf-
field said. "From what I have
learned, we could well have
one of the finest sports fishing
centers in the South, with our
protected harbor and the
abundance of game fish off
our shores. All we need is a
place to work out of and a
market". He said the guide-
lines for the center would also
allow pleasure boat facilities
to be installed, such as a
harbor and possibly dry stor-
age facilities, something
which has been needed along


the Bend here for a long time.
At present, only Panama City
offers any dependable service
in this area.
"The possibilities are unlim-
ited", Raffield said, "As to
what can be done with the site.
They will be limited only to the
degree in which private busi-
ness is willing to invest".
Raffield said it has been his
experience and the surveys
show that private business is
very interested in being a part
of such a center.
"I know it would be a boon to
the commercial fisherman to


have a center where their
needs could be met", Raffield
said.
STEPS TAKEN
Steps are already being
taken to inform Coastal Plains
why Port St. Joe would be the
best place for the center.
Some contacts are being made
and a list of attributes drawn
up in order to try and per-
suade Coastal Plains to male
Port St. Joe as its final
selection.
The nearest facility of this
kind to the Gulf Coast is in
Virginia.

Rosalynn Tells It


Like It Is


Wakulla County News
Until last week we remained
holdouts in what appears to be
a rapidly dwindling minority
of those who voted for Jimmy
Carter and still held hopes
that a person with such ob-
viously good intentions would
eventually assert himself.and
take positive action to remedy
some of the more seriousills
of our country.
We've given up.
The sooner he becomes a
one-term ex-president, the
better.
The final straw was a televi-
sion segment 'of President
Jimmy making a plea to the
businessmen of the country to
h6ld the line on prices and
wages in order to fight what
must surely be our most
serious domestic ill-inflation.
Weekly newspapers qualify
as businesses,.though not a lot
of them are profit-making.
One of our most serious
concerns is the postal service,
since we rely on that almost
entirely to deliver our product
to our customers.
The day after we heard
Jimmy make the plea to hold
the line on wages, we received


through the mail (late) a news
release announcing exams to
be given by the postal service
to fill out their roster of job.
applicants. They were seeking
mail clerks-no experience
required. The salary after one
year amounted to more than
$8 an hour.
Few weekly editors make
that.
A few days later, we applied
for a certain permit required
by the postal service. We
found that within the previous
week the fee for that applica-
tion hadrisen from $30 to $120.
Then followed the postal
rate increase which hits all of
'us directly. First class stamps
went from 13 to 15 cents.
Well, second class rates,
which for us have more than
tripled in the past two and a,.
half years, have gone up-!.
another 32 percent.
We have just seen what is
called a taxpayers' revolt in
California. A stamp buyers'
revolt is 'every bit as well
justified.
Many brush off the two-cent
increase in a first class stamp.
They don't write all that many
letters anyway.


LETTERS

to the Editor


Dear Wes:
As you may know, the first
day of qualifying for County
and 'State elective office is
Tuesday, July' 11, 1978. The
qualifying period extends. to
July 25, 1978.
Your readers should be
reminded of the Resign-to-
Run Law (Florida Statute
99.012). Basically, this Statute
applies to an individual hold-
ing one office who intends to
run for a different office. The
resignation must be tenddred
not less than ten (10) days


prior to the first day of
qualifying, but it need not be
effective until the date the
individual would assume of-
fice, if elected.
an individual interested in
running for office to whom this
Statute may apply should
review the complete law. The
Elections Division in, the Of-
fice of the Secretary of State in
Tallahassee is very coopera-
tive in answering specific
questions.
Sincerely,
ROBERT M. MOORE


But the explosive increases
hit every kind of postage-
second, third and fourth class.
Parcels, for instance, went up
a whopping 37 percent.
The cost will eventually in-
crease for everything you get
in the mail or ir which mail
plays a part. The, consumer
may fail to recognize that he
walks into a store, orders an
item and the store sends off
the order under a higher post-
age. The item is returned by
mail and another good chunk
has to be added to the price.
That's holding the line on in-
flatiori?
We're sensitive to the fact
that newspaper publishers
seem chronically to be
screaming about postage
rates. Small papers in the past
received a' form: of subsidy,
through: the favorable second
class rate. Those in the busi-
ness have argued that it's in
the national interest to nur-
ture as many small news,
papers with varying view-
points as possible, to promote
wide ranging opinion and pre-
vent monopoly in the area of
ideas.
Jimmy Carter has an-
nounced his opposition to this
view. He believes taht every
class of mail should be at least
self-supporting, if not profit-
making.
There's no question but this
will kill off a great many mar-
ginal newspapers in the coun-
try, thus reducing the overall
income of the postal service
and requiring additional in-
creases in postage rates to pay
their $8-an-hour beginning
salaries.
The same situation exists
throughout the area. United
Parcel Service is booming in
competition with the postal
service. Magazines and mail
order houses are seeking out
alternative ways to deliver
their products, presaging fur-
ther income reduction for the
postal service and further

Bible Notes


Luke 18:41-42; 17:19;'
Mark 5:34
,,eyS Word: Faith .Exercised
;MLuke 18:41-42 -: -'Saying,
'What wilt thou that I shall do
unto thee?' And he said, 'Lord,
that I may receive my sight.'
And Jesus said unto him, 'Re-
ceive thy sight: thy faith hath
saved thee.' "
Luke 17:19, "And he said
unto him, 'Arise, go thy way:
thy faith hath made thee
whole.' "
Mark 5:34, "And he said
'unto her, 'Daughter, thy faith
hath made thee whole; go in
peace, and be made whole of
thy plague.' "
One definition of faith is
"confidence in the testimony
of another." In each case in
the scripture related we see
'Jesus found "confidence in the
testimony of another." Luke,
Chapter 18, a man, blind,
heard Jesus was passing and
began to call loudly for Jesus
to have mercy on him. This
man had faith, the "confi-
dence in the testimony of
another," Jesus.
In Luke, chapter 17, Jesus.
healed 10 lepers. However,
only one returned to glorify
God. Jesus found faith in this
man. This man had faith in
God and his- faith made him


whole. The other nine lepers
were healed by only this one
received complete wholeness.
SI believe no scars remained,
fingers and hair returned. A'
recreation of that which had
gone. In Mark 5:34, the story
of the sick woman touching/
the hem of Jesus' cloak is
related. Faith made her
whole.
Your faith exercised can
change your life. This is what
Jesus taught. Don't confess
negativism, practice exercis-
ing your faith. It works!

the people of Russia have a better
sense of individualism and what
Democracy truly means than do
Americans. The author and thinker
says Russians have the capability of
fending for themselves because they
have to do it every day. He thinks
they are stronger in spirit.
We think Mr. Solzhenitsyn mis-
ses the point of the joy of living in
America. One of the prime reasons
we like this nation is just because we
do not have to be so tense as do the
Russians, merely to survive. Ameri-
cans feel secure, so they can enjoy
themselves and live a good life.
To that extent, Mr. Solzhenitsyn
is probably right.
We're glad he is, We also
appreciate Mrs. Carter taking him
to task about the strength of this
.nation. Our people do not live in a
stage of war-readiness, but, if we

ETAOIN SHRDLU

BY WESLEY R. RAMSEY


The July Fourth holiday just naturally
reminds us of heroes in this nation, and the
example they set for all our budding youth. Here
in America we have enough heroes to go around.
One can find a hero to worship in almost every
walk of life. Sports heroes probably make up the
biggest single category, especially for young
boys. Heroes are looked up to and idolized by
young boys. They copy'their habits, talk and
motions. A hero has responsibilities.
There are many sports figures who set a
good example, such as Rosie Greer, Bill Glass,
Tom Seaver, Roger Staubach and many others.
There are also the other kind, who would
serve mankind better if they were put under a
bushel. One of these is Leon Spinks. He is doing
one of your better jobs at showing us what a hero
shouldn't be. After taking part in the Olympics
we expected better of Leon. The Olympics are
supposed to be the epitome of good sportsman-
ship and clean living. Look at Bruce Jenner and


Mark Spitz. Jesse Owens is another prime
example of what Olympics are supposed to
mean.
But Leon Spinks? If he's a sport, I'm King
Tut.

The warning is out that we are to get finely
ground bone in our hot dogs, balogna and other
prepared and processed meats.
So, what's the 'big deal?
Dogs seem to fare pretty well on bones.
If I have my choice as to whether my
weiners will be filled out with feathers, entrails,
ears, feet, etc., or ground bone, I'll take the
ground bone.
If the processors keep on, an oddity will be to
go into the market and pick up a processed meat
which contains meat. The manufacturers might
even be forced to label such products as
containing meat, in order not to confuse the
customer.


Ali came back from Russia last week.
The papers printed a lot of his. statements
about how "peace-loving" the Russian people
were and how gentle and religious they were.
They and Ali were probably right. Most
people are peace-loving: it's their leaders who
cause of most of the trouble.
Newsweek magazine had an article regard-
ing Ali's trip which wasn't printed in the papers.
Newsweek quoted Ali as saying he "was afraid"
in Russia. He wanted to get'out and he was going
to say nothing to keep him from getting out.
According to Newsweek, All became so
disenchanted with Russia and appreciative of
the United States that he broke into song and
warbled "America" while walking down a
Russian street.

should try some of the others first hand. Ours
may not be perfect and need a lot of work, but it
is head-and shoulders above what happens to be
even second best.
All, you may clown on TV and in your fights,
but I appreciate your song and your singing it
where it would do the most good.
I'll even forgive you now for grumbling when
my wife asked for your autograph two years ago
in Miami.

I'm holding my breath.
Last week it was announced that rain could


be polluting our streams, our land and our air.
Can you imagine what the Environmental
Protection Agency can do with that little bit of
information?
I am holding my breath because I am
expecting any minute for the EPA to come out
with a ruling that it can't rain any more.
If EPA can stop construction on a hydro-
electric dam, as badly as we need the
non-polluting enegry source, in order to save a
couple of hundred minnows, what will they do
with this bit of information that rain water
pollutes?
I sort of look for God to over-rule EPA if they
do take steps to stop rain from polluting our
streams.

I read the other day where the American
Telephone and Telegraph Company, one of the
nation's largest corporations, turned a billion
dollars in profits during its latest quarter of
operation.
The corporation made its first billion in a
quarter in 1976 and was the first U.S. corporation
to do so.
A billion dollars is a lot of money. A billion
dollars profit seems unreal.
It doesn't seem so large, however, when we
realize that our government spends this much
money, and more, each and every day that rolls
around.

County Will Give Support to



Red Bull Island Situation
o w i t


Gulf County will intervene
on behalf of the residents of
Red Bull Island, giving moral
support for opposition to an
edict from the Corps of Engin-
eers saying three canals on
Red Bull Island must be filled
in or spillways built.
The County cannot actively
pu-sue the matter, since no
public land is involved.
The people of Red Bull
Island face loss of use of the
canals and the drainage pur-
pose they serve by a court
order against developer
Charles Parker by the Corps
of Engineers. The Corps has
said Parker built the canals
without permission .and a
judge has given Parker 10
days from June 23 to fill one of
the canals and construct con-
crete spillways on two others.
Property owners in the area
object to the ruling, since they
purchased the property as
waterfront lots and any alter-
ation of the' canals would
destroy this convenience and
erode the value of their pro-
perty by more than two thirds
of original value.
The City of Wewahitchka
has also voiced its moral
support in favor of the resi-
Sdents and their position in the
Smatter. Wewahitchka Mayor
2 Edward Bandjough says the
Judge does not consider les-
Ssening of property values as a
significant argument in the
: matter.
OTHER CORPS MATTERS
In other business with the
Corps of Engineers, the Engi-
neers have agreed to help with
a problem with a silting boat
landing on the Apalachicola
SRiver at the end of SR22 at the
SGulf Countypark on the river
banks. The Corps has said it
would dredge out the boat
landing canal if the county will
secure the necessary state
permits. They said they would
maintain the canal under a
10-year agreement if the coun-
ty would secure permits.
In another matter, the Com-
S.mission received letters (from
"' Senator Richard Stone and
Congressman Bob Sikes stat-

ing they are working with the
Corps to get them to open up
the Apalachicola River moutt
of Corley Slough. The Slough.
was stopped up several year
ago by the Corps while doing
dredging work on the River.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com
mission:
-Was notified by the DO'1
that the County would receive
ownership of five roads in the
county in 1980. These include
SR30A from Cape San Bias t(
St. Joseph State Park; SR 2:
from Wewahitchka to Ba3
County; Overstreet Road:
Garrison Avenue extension
from Niles Road to Highwa3
98; and Industrial Road.
-Accepted an operating
plan for District 11-A menta:
Health Board of which Gulf
County Guidance Clinic is z
part. The plan was presented
by John Howard, a director of
the health program. No fund
ing was stipulated in the plan
-Heard a formal, request
from Ed Johnson of Over-
street for some responsible
agency in the county to put in
a formal request for a high
rise bridge at Overstreet. The
present floating draw span is
scheduled for replacement by
the DOT. The Commission
Ssaid they had seen no other
plans for anything but a high
rise at Overstreet and so far
as they knew, nothing else was
. even being considered.
--Discussed placing the
Gulf County Recreation pro-
gram under the direct super-
vision of the School Board.
The program is now directed
by a group of representatives
from all the contributing
agencies. The committee
hasn't met in nearly a year.

Rotarians See Film On'Splendid Splinter'


Program chairman John
Miller showed the Rotary Club
a film at its regular meeting
Thursday on the career of Ted
Williams, the only baseball
player in history to hit over
.400 in a season. Williams hit
406 in the 1941 season.
In the film, Williams and
other baseball players were
interviewed by Tom Harmon,
sportscaster.
In questioning Williams as
to whether or not he felt there
would ever be another .400
hitter, the "Slendid Splinter"
said he thought there would
be, but he couldn't predict
when it would be.
Commenting on pitchers of
today and during the days
when he was playing, Wil-
liams said he felt the pitchers


were as good today as then. He
picked Bob Feller, formerly
with the Cleveland Indians as
his selection as the best pit-
cher he has ever seen. He
made the selection because
"Feller continued to be an
effective and winning pitcher
even after he became too old
to throw and depend on his
blazing fast ball to do his work

for him.
Feller was also interviewed
by Harmon and said he had,
never seen Williams go after a
bad ball. "Some hitters would
try to hit a. ball not in the strike
zone just to get a hit, but Ted
waited for a good pitch before
he would swing".
Williams said he felt Joe

Says City

Faces A

Shortage
SRon Smith, director of the
Monticello Division of Florida
Power Corporation told the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday that the
:utility is very close to the point
'where it' will have to curtail
some power customers during
the summer.
: .: Smith said that ,problems
with the firm's nuclear energy
plant at Crystal River and
refusal of EPA and DER to
Sallow beginning of operation
at.the new coal-burning plant
at.Anclote has put the power
S coinpany in a position of being
S in a deficit position to produc-
ing their anticipated power
,needs to supply all customers
during the peak power-using
months this summer.
:. "We anticipated a need of
3,700 KWH capacity for the
summer and as of now we face
a deficit of 97 KWH to produce
our anticipated needs", Smith
said. He said.that anticipation
prior to the'two plants going
off the line was that the utility'
SWould have a surplus of 1,100
KWH during times of peak
loads
:Smith said that DER and.
EPA refused to allow the new
Anclote River plant going on
the line because it raised the
Temperature of expelled, cool-
ing water by 5.1 degrees. The
.margin of five degrees had
been allowed by the regulation
agencies.
Smith said the regulation
agencies have told the plant
they must build two water
cooling towers of the type:
Which was in the news recent-
ly at West Virginia, at a cost of
$50 million. "This cost would
be borne by the electric cus-
tomer and we don't think it is
necessary that the customer
be shouldered with this added
expense for the small benefits
which would result", the
speaker said. Smith said the
only adverse effect from the
: small rise in expelled water
temperature was to under-
water grasses in about a 50
acre area.
As for the future, Smith said
Florida Power is already
making plans to start con-
S struction on two new coal
S: burning plants during the next
two years, to meet power
demands of the early 1980's.
"We would like to go nuclear",
S he said, "Because the-fuel
source is more dependable
and much cheaper for the
consumer, but we can't be
sure of the permits, the chan-
ges, and other factors which
might delay construction be-
yond the deadline of our need
S for more power".
Smith said the firm is now
converting its generation
facilities from oil and gas to
coal as the more dependable
fuel today. "We have firm
Contracts. with U.S. firms to
supply us with an acceptable
fuel", Smith said. "With the
oil we could never be sure of a
continuity of supply, as well as
shoulder the growing cost."
Smith said that with the two
plants now out of ope ,,ion,
consumers are being forced to
pay an additional $20 million a
year for power. "When our
nuclear plant comes back up
late next month or '" in
August, the result should be a
relief in rates", Smith said.
The firm's! Crystal River
plants use 2 million tons of
coal per year. This amounts to
two 80-car trains a day deliv-
Seing the fuel supply to the
plants.


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1978


Let Post Office Hold or Forward Vacation Mail .


Making arrangements for
holding or forwarding mail
prior to leaving home for
vacations can save customers
a lot of misery and inconven-
ience, Postmaster Braswell
reminds local residents today,
"An over-flowing mailbox
can be an open invitation to
burglars," Postmaster Bras-


well said. "Letting mail or
newspapers pile up is adver-
tising the fact that-the house
or apartment will be empty
and unguarded."
Householders should ask a
friend or neighbor to check
their mailbox daily and to hold
their mail until vacation's
over.


Or, if they prefer, they can
ask the Post Office to hold
.their mail for up to 30 days, or
to forward it to the vacation
address.
The postmaster offered
these additional tips for taking
some of the worry out of
vacation planning:-
Vacationers should buy


enough stamps for scenic
postcards and other corre-
spondence before they leave.
They may not be conveniently
near a post office later.
They should use sufficient
postage -- ten cents for post-
cards and 15 cents for letters
weighing one ounce or less.
For letters weighing more

The Boaid of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met on June 13, 1978
In regular session with the
following members present:'
Chairman Jimmy O. Gort-
man, Everett Owens, Jr.,
William R. Branch, and Leo
Kennedy. Also present were
Bailiff Emmlett Daniell, At-
torney William J. Rish, Depu-
ty Clerk Jerry Gates, Road
Superintendent Lloyd Whit-
field, add Mosquito Control
Director Tommy Pitts.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. Attorney Rish
opened the meeting with pray-
er and led the pledge of
allegiance to the flag.
The minutes of April 28,
May 5, May 23, and June 6,
1978 were read, approved, and
adopted;
Mr. Ned Ales, Gulf County
Guidance Clinic, appeared be-
fore the Board to request an
increase in the Board's share
of funding for the agency from
$1,500 to $3,000 in fiscal year
197-79. The Board 'agreed to
consider this request during
budget hearings. ,
Mrs. Marie Herring appear-
ed before the Board request-
ing that a street in Overstreet
be closed. She said that a
recent survey she had made
revealed that the road had
never been deeded to the
County and that it splits her
property making part of it
almost useless. Commissioner
Kennedy stated he opposed
closing the road as the County
had maintained it for years
and it served a real need.
Commissioner Branch stated
he was opposed to closing the
road as it was a main street in
Overstreet and. very.impor-
tant to the community. Com-
missioner Kennedy moved the
Board work with Mrs. Herring
to study shifting the road, by
having RW Iuperintendent
Lloyd WhFtfltr present a
drawing showing the effects of
such a shift for further study
by the Board. Commissioner
Owens seconded the motion
and it passed with Commis-
sioners Kennedy, Owens, and
Gortman voting Aye. Com-
missioner Branch voted Nay,
stating he was opposed to
moving the road.
Mrs. Joanna Barnes, Gulf
County Activity Center for the
Retarded, appeared before
the Board to request funding
in the amount of$2,959.25 for
the Center. The Board agreed
to consider this request during
the budget hearings.
Mr. E.'. Gunn, County
Building Inspector, told the
'Board that work had ceased
on the Oak Grove Water and
Sewer Project due to the
absence of the Contractor.
Engineer Steve Nations of
Florida Engineering Asso-
