Apparent Suicide Mars Celebration




Fireworks Display Closes Out Holiday


Port St. Joe's Jaycees ended a July
Fourth holiday on a traditional note last
night, as they put on a giant fireworks display
which lasted for the better part of an hour.
The Jaycees collected contraband fireworks
from the Sheriff's Department and the Port
St. Joe Police Department, and set them off in
the softball field after dark.
A large crowd was on hand for the
display, which filled the air with color and the
ear with noise.
The Fourth was a comparatively quiet.
holiday for Gulf County, though three
incidents marred the day of relaxation over
the county, according to Gulf County Sheriff


Ken Murphy.
Murphy said the most serious "happen-.
ing" of the holiday was a suspected suicide
Tuesday evening in Wewahitchka.
Sheriff Murphy. said Peggy Marie Veal,
age 41, apparently killed herself with a .32
revolver, with a single shot placed behind her
right ear.
Sheriff Murphy said Ms. Veal was at a
gathering at her home on Red Bull Island in
Wewahitchka, when she suddenly dashed out
of the house, jumped in a car and sped to the
home of her sister, Mrs. Audrey Duren. Ms.
Veal was alone in the house at the time.
Sheriff Murphy said a neighbor told him
he heard two shots and went to the house to


investigate, finding Ms. Veal lying dead on
the floor.
The shooting occurred at about 8:10 p.m.
Sheriff Murphy said his office and
Wewahitchka Police Chief. Jonathan Glass
still have the matter under investigation.
ARSON ATTEMPT
Another "happening" was reported by
Sheriff Murphy in Jones Homestead, south of
Port St. Joe.
The Port St. Joe Fire Department was
called to a blaze in the home of Mr. and Mrs.
John Henry Waters, and quickly had it out.
Sheriff Murphy said his deputies arrested
Waters when neighbors said they had seen
him trying to set the house on fire, causing the


fire alarm.
SWaters was arrested on a charge of
suspected arsoh. The matter is still under
investigation.
BOY INJURED
A 13-year-old boy, Scott Baker of Atlanta,
Georgia, was injured during the holiday,
cutting his hand while trying to open a
scallop.
Baker was a guest of Camp Nautaulis, a
boy's camp on Black's Island.
Young Baker was taken to Municipal
Hospital, but there was no doctor on duty at
the time, so he was taken to Panama City,
where he underwent surgery Wednesday
morning for tendon damage.

such as-the McKenzie Tank

true.


The Motel St. Joe was sold
this past week end, according
to Bob Lange, former owner.
Health Care Services of
Pensacola has purchased the
land-mark at the corner of
Highways 71 and 98 and will
turn it into a retirement'
apartment, complex, accord-
ing to James Folmer of Health
Care Services. The facility,
will contain both private and
semi-private rooms, catering
tb-the retired.
The, new operation will fur-
nish two meals per day and
non-emergency medical care,
as well as a house-keeping
service. An emergency call


system will be available 24
hours a day.
The retirement center will
furnish recreation activities,
provide a van to take residents
where they need to go either
for recreation or business.
Folmer says the new facility
will work closely with the new
nursing home his firm is also
making plans to build in Port
St. Joe. "This new facility will
not take the place of our
nursing home plans", Folmer
said.
It is planned that from 30 to
35 people will use the retire-
ment center once it gets into
full operation.

As Their New President


LION OF THE YEAR
Fred Witten


The Port St. Joe Lions Club
held its annual combination
installation and awards ban-
quet last Friday evening at the
St. Joseph's Bay Country
Club.
The highlight of the evening
was the presentation of the
"Lion of the Year" award.
Fred Witten was the recipient
of the award, considered the
most coveted award in Lion-
ism.
SFred earned the award .for
his combined merits as pro-
gram chairman for the past
year, furnishing his fellow
Lions with some very interest-
ing programs..He also was the


moving force behind the new
Lions club scholarship fund,
the first of which was awarded
this year to Keith Neel.

Several of the club's
achievements in the past year
include, purchase of eye glas-
ses for the needy, sponsor of
two boys to the Woody Wood-
ward baseball clinic, contribu-
tions to the Florida Founda-
tion for the Blind and to the
Lead Dog program, presented.
a $300 scholarship to a needy
high school senior. The club
also won first prize in the
annual Christmas parade, had
a successful softball tourna-
ment and hosted a zone meet-


ing for area Lions.
All of the proceeds from the
various projects go toward
sight conservation and com-
munity projects.
Lion Bob Moore, past presi-
dent of the local club, presided
over the installation ceremony
for new officers.
Officers for the coming year
will be: Roy Smith, president;
Tim Griffin, first vice-presi-
dent; Mike Wright, second
vice-president; Ken Patter-
son, third vice-president;
Rocky Comforter, secretary-
treasurer; Higdon Swatts,
Lion Tamer; David Roche,
Glen Williams, Quinn Lowry
and Fred Witten, directors.

band. The NJROTC honor
guard will present the colors
and Mayor Frank Pate will
make the pair honorary citi-
zens of Port St. Joe. The ladies
of the Garden Club will be
serving ice cold punch.
Except for the trip by
helicopter, you would think
that Eckerd and Hawkins had
reverted to the old'time style
of politicking.
Everyone is invited to be
present, shake hands with the


candidates and visit. Chairs
will be furnished and tents will
be erected for shade from the
sun.
According to Eckerd-Hiw-
kins supporters, everything
has been planned to make this
a big Port St. Joe "Hello" to
the two candidates.
The candidates will stay in
Port St. Joe as long as
necessary to allow a chance
for anyone who wishes to talk
with them, question them and
meet the GOP candidates.


Regulations Set for Politicos


to Announce Their Intentions


The Star will carry news
stories about candidates
announcing for office as the
elections begin to wind up
next week.
Such stories in the past
have been a pretty hectic
experience for The Star,
with some candidates get-
ting mad because some
received more space than
others. Our policy has been
to print what the candidate
brings in for his initial
announcement story. After
that, he must pay for the
space he uses.
This year, we will print
what the candidate brings
in with his announcement,


though we reserve the right
to edit the copy to make it
presentable.
We must set ground rules
for the stories this year,
since they are getting more
and more out of hand as
each election goes by.
The Star will accept your
announcement story, with
some biography and plat-
form included. The an-
nouncement may not be
more than one double-
spaced typewritten page. If
you do not have a black and
white picture of yourself,
no larger than a 5X7, we
will take one here at The
Star, if you notify us ahead


of time. We will not accepts
color pictures, since our'
offset printing (and other.
printing methods) do not do "
a good job with color
pictures.
The initial news story,-
will be printed on the front -
page on a space available-'
basis in the order which the
articles are brought in.
Political' articles must be
brought in by Monday af-
ternoon of the week of
insertion.
We want to cooperate
with all candidates, but
must abide by these rules
strictly in order to keep you
from running us crazy.

Letters .. .

to the Editor

God Bless

America

Dear Editor:
Once again we come around
to the Fourth of July Inde-
pendence Day with its bands,
parades and crowds of people
lining the streets. Like Christ-
mas, it never changes nor
does anyone want it to.
The only trouble is that
nothing can stay the same for
long. The strong man who
made a nation great passes on
with age and a younger man
takes over. Perhaps he has
been through wars and wants
no more of them. So he tries to
cooperate with the enemies
who always stand at the door,
or perhaps he is just weak.
And history tells us that
nations have fallen because of
weak leaders.
Co-operation is good-up to
a point. But when our leaders
trade their country's most
valuable possessions to ap-
pease.the enemy, it is' not
good. It is' better to remember -
Teddy Roosevelt's slogan-
"Walk softly but carry a big
stick."
1978 has been a year -of
demonstrations for anything
and everything a year of
crime on the streets and sex
perversions. But 1776 and 1864
were not so good, were they?
And the good old USA strug-
gled through them to some-
thing better. Let us hope she
will do it again.
So God bless America!
May He send us strong men,
equal to their jobs. Some-
where in the Bible it says that
when the need arises, they will
appear.
Let us hope so.
Happy Holiday?

ETAOIN SHRDLU

IBY WESLEY R. RAMSEY
*


DELICIOUS BLESSINGS
If you have ever been to a Baptist church,
you know they work on you about visiting,
witnessing and being of service to one another.
The reward of visiting is blessings. A blessing is
sort of a nebulous thing. To one person it is
something and to another, something else.
I am chairman of the deacon board in our
church this year and I have been doing a
minimum of this visiting thing, in conjunction
with my responsibilities. Like all good Baptists,
I'm afraid I have kept the visiting to a bare
minimum.
I did get the "blessings" for the visiting I
did.
About two weeks ago; I had occasion to run
into Cecil Harrison at the church softball game
and Cecil mentioned his overflowing tomato
crop. I mentioned, in a sly manner, that mine


hadn't done so well and Cecil offered me a mess
of his.
I went home with Cecil, got in an official
visit, and received the "blessings" of a sack full
of red, ripe tomatoes.
This past week, I hit a bonanza in my visiting
for the church.
Monday, I had some church business to tend
to and set out about 7:00 p.m., after I had left the
office, to take care of it.
First, I had to see Dick Lamberson and
found him at work in his garden beside his place
of business. Before I left, Dick loaded me up with
some fresh okra he had just picked and a nice,
large, ripe and juicy cantaloupe for my
breakfast the next morning.
Then, I headed for Ralph Walton's house for
another official visit. At Ralph's house, I picked
up two pints of bread and butter pickles, his wife,


Betty, had just finished canning.
If I can keep up this visiting often and
regular enough and continue to receive the same
"blessings", my grocery bill will be cut
considerably.
In these days of rising costs, causigg
groceries to go up, such "blessings" can prove to
be more than nebulous. They are real, tangible
and delicious items.

LEAVING THE TV ON "OFF"
The other night, Frenchie and I lived
primitively. I don't mean we ran around the
house in a bear skin or bare skin. I mean we lived
like they did back in the pioneer days. We left the
television set off.
Did you ever try to leave the television off for
one night? It sure is quiet. Even with the air.
conditioner running .. it sure is quiet.
Remembering back to that night, which was
about a week ago, I think I remember we
actually talked to one another for a short period
while the TV was off. I know I got in some
reading and found that I don't miss all that much
reading even when the set is on. I read during the
commercials while the TV is playing and found I
get nearly as much done as when it is off
altogether.
I think that, from now on, we'll set a date on
the calendar and try leaving the set off entirely,


for one full evening, for at least one night each
quarter. Who knows, we might even work up to
leaving it off one night a month.
Even the cat and dogs seemed to enjoy it,
though they were a bit nervous at the
unaccustomed silence.


STILL WAITING FOR A CROP
My crazy pecan tree, valiantly struggling to
a productive life in our back yard, produced a
crop two years ago. One lonely pecan graced its
limbs, and the squirrels got it. Last year, the tree
couldn't come up with even one pecan. It spent
all its energies to growing toward that day when
it will provide a wide, cooling shade over near
the blueberry bushes.
This year, it stretched itself from a winter of
sleep and once again put on a crop ... of one
pecan.
Thursday evening, I was checking out the
progress of my crop and found that my lone
pecan was gone! Some bird got my pecan. I'll
bet it was that mocking bird which has been in
the back yard since spring first sprung, filling
the air with his song. He has extracted his pound
of flesh for his labors.
Now, I have to wait another year to possibly
harvest my first pecan from my first pecan tree
which has lived beyond infancy.

This year was apparently a bumper crop for
gardeners in the Bay area. Reports of good crops
are coming in every day and some are growing
unusually large fruits for their labors. In the
pictures above, you can see some of the evidence.
In the photo at left, Anderson Davis of Oak
Grove shows off two of his prize tomatoes, which he


grew in his back yard. Mr. Davis said some of the
tomatoes were as much as 18 inches around. These
two beauties he is holding would make azW family a
meal.
In the photo at right, Mrs. Dot MyerA daughter
of Mrs. Lee Whittington, shows off some of the
green beans Mrs. Whittington grew in her garden at


Highland View. These peas, called "yard peas" by
Mrs. Whittington would probably sell by the yard or
the dozen in the market, rather than by the pound.
Mrs. Whittington also had a, bumper crop of these
huge beans, minus the mess she gave our

Mrs. Nichols Chronicles Trip Made to Points North


K by Margaret Nichols
;To be with my two sisters
Mae Grier from Sanford, and
Etel'Hall from Malon~is fti
to begin with but to see things,
S do things, and travel the way
we did is even more fun. We
ate so many meals out of a
picnic basket and ice chest at
wayside parks and rest areas,
meeting people from all over
doing the same thing.
.Our first stop was Nashville,
Tenn. and a trip by tour bus to
points of interest. Stops were
made at Parthenon, Upper
Room Chapel, and Country
Music Hall of Fame. We had to
see Elvis' "solid gold" Cadil-
lac! Our tour guide added
interest by telling good jokes


and special things about the
different stars homes we saw.
One special being Ronnie Mil--
'shp'sgli~e on top ofa -hill with'
such a lovely, grand view and
of course his inability to enjoy
it.
On to Kentucky and an
unexpected stop at Lincoln's
birthplace was informative
and interesting. A film presen-
ted a bit about his birth and
ancestry not often heard.
Next stop Dayton, Ohio (our
main objective) to see Jake
Nichols stationed at Wright
'Patterson Air Force Base He
showed us around but next day
took us to a River Festival
held yearly in Dayton to


welcome in their summer. It
was held in a huge Island Park
on the Miami- River;,with !a
lagoon on the other.side to
form the island. Unusual con-
cession stands (especially to
,e Southerners) were all
around. The food was different
but superb. They had contests,
races, and entertainment of
every kind imaginable; paper
boat folding contests, sailing
and canoe races, motor boat
races, bellydancing, mimes,
creative dances, opera, ballet,
bands.-gospel singers, and a
dance-a-thon just to name a
few.
Next day, Sunday, we went
to a Methodist church next
door to our motel for morning
worship service and stayed for
a delicious spaghetti dinner
served by the young people.
You just had to stay for that
'cause the aroma during the
service' was overwhelming.
Maybe that was intended! In
the p.m. we visited the Air
Force Museum. Most interest-
ing. Every American should
see this.
On Monday Jake took us to

tour package, but I. must
admit we did enjoy it if we did
feel a bit taken. A highlight
was a boat trip on Maid of the
Mist working our way through
turbulent waters past Ameri-
can Falls, the Rock of Ages,
beyond Cave of the Winds and
on to the foot of the thundering
Horseshoe Falls. The spray,
the color, the roar, the Majes-
ty of the Falls were awe
inspiring.
An interesting sight from
1-90 in New York was the
monstrously huge fields of low
growing grape vines, vine-
yards maybe. So different
from the tall, heavy foliaged
vine growing in my back yard.

you wouldn't believe one of;

ground to plant them all; but,
this is one plant that. should
grace almost every border or
large flowering bed. The
plant itself has many uses
other than the. beauty of its
flowers. The roots, leaves,
and flower are all edible. In
some countries the roots are
considered.a delicacy.
Back to the flowers. Many
new shades have been intro-
duced. There are those that
are almost purple in color.
On the other end, you can
find the most delicate shade
of pink. In between there are
hundreds of yellows and
ornages. You find the one you
.like best and being planting.
Daylilies have few diseases


and almost no insect pro-
blems. They respond well to
fertilizer and water. How-
ever if neglected totally they
will still provide some bloom.
This is a plant that every
busy gardener should have.
Gazania has become one of
the best of bedding and
border perennials. Some of
the new improved varieties
are outstanding in color.
Even the flower size has been
improved. Not only is the
flower lovely, but the foliage
is a two tone silver on the
underside of the leaf, and a
dull green on the top. As the
wind blows the foliage, it
provides an interesting ef-
fect.

W. K. Settlemire Suggests Blueberries


,A Nev

When,W. K, Settlemire gets
i*iterested in something, his
curiosity runs rampant and he
goes to digging for authority
on that particular item.
Settlemire is now interested
in the cultivation of blueber-
ries and he has followed his
natural inclination to go to the
source of authority about blue-

berries.
What he has found out
through study and experimen-
tation has Settlemire excited.
Growing.his Tift Blues and
Woodwards on a sixth of an
acre. of land at his home in
Dalkeith, Settlemire is con-
vinced he has discovered a
cash crop which could mean


considerable to Gulf County
land owners.
For the past several years,
since he put his plants into the
ground seven years ago, Set-
tlemire has been in touch with
the Georgia Experiment Sta-
tion at Abraham Baldwin
College at Tifton, Georgia,
where the berries are under

ment as a cash crop for that.
state.
'"Georgia now ships over
1,000 tons of blueberries a year
into the market", Settlemire
said. "Most of these come
from the Tifton area".
For the past two years,
Settlemire has attended a
blueberry short course at the
college experiment station to
learn more about the cultiva-
tion and marketing of the
berries. Just two weeks ago,
he made a trip to Abraham
Baldwin to see a demonstra-
tion of a blueberry harvesting
machine. "It worked, alright,
but it was too slow. I think it
could be improved upon",
Settlemire said.
Locally, Settlemire is keep-
inig books on the production of
his one-sixth acre of blueber-
ries. "They take very little
work and they are bearing this
year in great numbers", Set-
tlemire said. He has kept
records since the picking be-
gan in June and thus far has
harvested 215 pounds and
figures he has picked about
one-fourth to one-third of what
the bushes will produce.
"You can do a little arith-
metic and see that the produc-
* tion per acre will be consider-
able", Settlemire said. He
said that last year, his bushes
had their first mature
yield and he estimates they
harvested over 500 pounds of
the berries. "The market is
around 70c per pound whole-
sale, so you can see this crop
has the promise to be a big
money-maker", he said.
Settlemire says the blueber-
.ries thrive on the acid muck
which is so plentiful in Gulf
County. "I can see where we
could have a thriving industry
in blueberries if a landowner
became interested in the
fruit", he said.
Settlemire is no amateur
gardener who has happened to
produce a large crop of blue-
berries in one particular year.
He is a horticulturist of con-
siderable skill. He knows what
he is talking about when he
says, "They are simple to
grow, and tend.-" -,.He: ,has


studied available sources on
blueberry culture and is now
making a study, nation-wide,
of the marketing possibilities
for the fruit. He said there are
several million tons of the
fruit marketed in the United
States each year. "It is a
popular fruit", he said.
Settlemire has his berries
growing on a slight mound in a
low-lying corner of his large
garden. He has a furrow
plowed between the two rows
to give drainage and feeds his
plants with mulch and a small
amount of azalea fertilizer.
"We mostly mulch. They like
that", he said.
While Settlemire says the
Georgia producers keep their
fields clean around' the bush-
es, he doesn't. He cuts the
grass when it gets too high and
allows the mulch to choke out
weeds and grasses immedi-
ately around the plants.
Settlemire is convinced he
has found a cash crop which
could considerably boost the
economy of Gulf County. If
everyone could see the limbs
hanging low with blueberries
in every stage of ripening, he
would be hard put to dispute
Settlemire's idea.

STHE PERFECT CHOICE FOR THE PERFECT HOSTESS
The perfect choice for a bridal luncheon, a bridge club
affair, or a light refreshing supper is this "SHRIMP AND
ASPARAGUS SALAD." It is colorful, elegant, appetizing and
the best part, reports the Florida Department of Natural Re-
sources, is that it is low in calories. However, the De-
Spartment suggests you not mention that part to your guests;
just let them rave about the delicious flavor of marinated
shrimp, asparagus, water chestnuts, and celery without
trying to disprove the idea that things that taste good can't be
-good for you. It isn't necessary that they know shrimp con-
tain high-quality, easily digested protein, essential minerals
and are low in fat and calories in order to'enjoy this treat.
This elegantffare can be prepared:in advance, arranged on
serving dishes, and be ready to serve an hour before your
guests arrive leaving you free to greet them with grace and
ease. Knowing that you will be a nutritious-conscious, well-
organized and gracious hostess, wouldn't you agree that
SHRIMP AND ASPARAGUS SALAD is the perfect choice for
..most any occasion?

Hampton added.
Some other safe-swimming

learn to swim better.
Respect the water. and
know your limitations.
Wait an hour after eating
before swimming. Don't
swim while overheated or

Swim in a safe place in the
presence of lifeguards or

Don't swim in front of

Be sure rescue equipment

$40,000 Spent On Recreation


There is over $40D000 spent
each year in Gulf County to
coordinate and conduct recre-
ation activities for all ages,
John Clenney, Director of
Community Services told the
Rotary Club last Thursday.
This money comes from the
State of Florida, $12,000; Gulf
County, $9,000; School Board,
$9,000; City of Port St. Joe,
$6,000; and $4,000, City of
Wewahitchka.
With a program in Port St.


Joe and Wewahitchka, to ac-
commodate residents in both.
ends of the county, $23,000 is
allocated to the Port St. Joe
office and $17,000 to the We-
wahitchka program.

Clenney said the recreation
program is offered year-round
and covers 'every activity
from Dixie Youth League,
church and open .softball
leagues, organized basketball
and flag football to fire fight-


How Are Your


Social Security


Credits Made?


Many people in the Port St.;
Joe area seem to be confused:
about the rules governing how
social security credits a per-
son's earnings, David Robin-
son, Social Security Represen:
tative for Gulf County, said'
recently.
There are two different
concepts involved, Robinson
went on. The first has to do
with how earnings are credi-
ted, and the second deals with
how social security credits, or
"quarters of coverage," are
earned.
The earnings of most wor-
kers are covered starting with
the first dollar they are paid
each year. But, there are
special rules that apply to the
earnings of others.
The earnings of people who
work in someone else's home
are covered only if they are
paid $50 cash or more in a
three month calendar quarter
by one employer. The earn- '
ings of farm workers are
covered only if they are paid
$150 or more in a year or they
work for an employer 20 or
more days in a year and are
paid on a time basis by the
hour, day, week, or month.
The earnings of self-employed
people are covered only if they
have net earnings of $400 or
more in a year. Cash tips are
covered only if they amount to
$20 or more'. in a mpnth-r
working for one employer.
If these rules are met,
Robinson continued, then all
of the worker's earnings must-
be reported to social security
under his or her name and
social security number. Start-
ing with 1978, the earnings of
all employees, except house-
hold workers, are reported
just once, at the end of the
year using the familiar Form
W-2 (Wage and Tax State-
ment). Self-employed people
will continue reporting their
covered earnings annually, at
the time they file their. Eede-'
ral income tax return.
Once a person's earnings
are covered, and subsequently
reported, another m4sure is
used to determine whhher the
person gets social security
credits, or "quarters of cover-
age," based on the earnings.
These credits are the basis
of eligibility for monthly so-
cial security benefits. For


example, a worker reaching
62 in 1978 needs credit for 63/4
years 27 quarters of coverage
to be eligible for retirement
,checks. By 1991, all workers
will need credit for 10 years of
work 40 quarters to be
,eligible for checks. Differing
amounts are needed for survi-
vor or disability benefits, de-
pending on the worker's age.
Before 1978, most workers
received credit for one quar-
ter of coverage if they were
paid $50 in a calendar quarter.
Farm workers received one
quarter for each $100 of cover-
ed annual earnings. Self-em-
ployed people received four
quarters if their net earnings
wer $400 or more. No more
than four quarters can be
credited in a year.
Starting with 1978 the same
rules apply to all, employed or
self-employed alike. A worker
will receive one quarter of
coverage for each $250 of
annual earnings, up to a total
of four quarters if annual
earnings are $1,000 or more.
The $250 measure will in-
crease automatically in future
years to keep pace with in-
creases in average wages
covered by social security.

obtained at the Panama City
Social Security Office, located
at 30 West Government St. The

JC Family Fourth


Representative Billy Joe Rish, who's
retiring from the Legislature this year after
being one of its prime movers and shakers,
isn't giving up politics completely.
Rish says he plans to start campaigning in
other state capitols for approval of a
little-known proposal that, in effect, would
outlaw deficit spending by the federal
government.
The Gulf County native considers the issue
so important that he says he will pay his own
way to other legislatures to urge them to
approve it. He views the spending issue with
the moral fervor characteristic of his
religious nature. Indeed, a balanced budget is
more than an issue to Rish, it is a crusade.

t j2


"It's the one great need in our country
today," says Rish. ."...It isn't just that the
feds spend money, like it's water. They're so
far removed and out of touch with the people,
there is no real reasoning or common sense
about how it is spent."
A top lieutenant of outgoing Speaker Donald
Tucker, Rish, 45, decided to step down this
year after eight years in the House. He has
been head of the Judiciary Committee for
four years and a key member of the
Appropriations Committee, specializing in
social services.
"I'm just tired of being away from home
right now," he says. "I'm going to know my
family again."


Except, of course, for the task of advocat-
ing a balanced budget.
This year Rish engineered legislative
approval of a resolution calling for a national
convention to draft an amendment to the
Constitution requiring a pay-as-you-go fede-
ral government. Curiously, one of Rish's
North Florida allies, Rep. A.H. "Gus" Craig,
D-St. Augustine, won approval three years
ago for the very same proposal.
Rish says 34 states must approve the idea
before Congress would have to call a
constitutional convention. It would be the first
such convention since the 1789 convention in
Philadelphia that drafted the nation's present
structure of government..


The Framers included that method for
changing the charter so the people wouldn't
be stymied if the other method of change was
blocked. Under the other procedure, Congress
must propose the change to the states. But
Congress hasn't proposed any ban on deficit
spending.
In any event Rish says the convention
probably will never be called.
"Congress will do something about its
deficit spending'before it does," Rish says.
"They aren't about to let the people have a
direct say on their spending policies. And that
will be fine with me. I don't want power, just
some fiscal responsibility."


Honey Barrel Softball Tourney


SSet for July 14, 15 In Wewa


Hemming up a bobbing apple
The Jaycees put on their
annual Family Fourth this
year, much to the enjoy-
ment of local youth. Games
provided included sack
-p races, frisbee throw, apple
bobbing and the ever popu-
lar greased-pole climb. Of
course there was a reason
for the pole's popularity-
attached to the top was a
$20 bill. Richard Jackson
was the lucky one who fin-
ally made it to the top.
A large crowd was in at-
tendance for the fireworks
display which provided an
hour's entertainment.

Hearing Set

On Beach

Channel
Congress Bob Sikes has re-
quested a hearing to be con-
ducted in November by the
Corps of Engineers on a long-
sought channel at the entrance
to Mexico Beach.
The community has at-
tempted for years to obtain an
adequate entrance channel to
the harbor. The support by
boat owners and prospective
users has not been sufficient to
justify a recommendation f'"
a channel with jetties by the
Corps of Engineers.
Without such a rec,..imen-
,dation, it is virtually impos-
sible to get favorable action on
a channel. The Congressman
feels that such a channel is the
key to the contain -owth
and development of the com-
munity and he is again at-
tempting to develop sufficient
support for approval.
Wealthy ladies in ancient
Rome sometimes washed
themselves in a sugary mix-
ture consisting of 20 pounds
of crushed strawberries and
two pounds of raspberries.

Many of Florida's drivers
who are being arrested every
day for speeding may be
victims of defective speedo-
meters said the Florida High-
way Patrol today.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "While to-
day's motor vehicle speedo-
meters are better than they
were in past years, things can
and do go wrong which affects
their accuracy."
He continued, "If you are
not sure of the one in your
vehicle, you can have a repair
shop check it or do it yourself
while out on the open highway
in light traffic. If you decide to
check it, first find out the

number of seconds it takes
you to travel one mile using
the second hand on your
watch. You can use your
odometer to measure one
mile; however, mile post
markers are usually more
accurate. Then divide the
number of seconds it takes to
go one mile into 3600, and'
you've got your speed."
"For example," he contin-
ued, "if it takes you 80 seconds
to travel on mile, you are
doing 45 mph, 65 seconds
would be 55 mph. Any time
less than 65 seconds would tell
you that you are in violation of
the 55 mph maximum speed
limit."

er, followed by the pledge to
the flag.

only a pro rata share of the

ded by Commissioner Branch,
S and unanimously carried, the
S 'resolution .was adopted., IA

in the Clerk's office.
W.C. Robinson and other
c" citizens of the Stone Mill
SCreek Community appeared
before the, Bodrd, seeking
information as to just when
: : the County plans to improve
their,road running from SR 71
S to the Subdivision. Robinson
S said that- this Commission
promised the people of Stone
Mill Creek two years ago that
.additional right of way was
S needed before this road could
be properly maintained. The
Road Superintendent reported
that easements were prepared
for the additional right of
way; that three land owners
were involved; one land owner
took all three easements in
an effort to have them signed
and only one easement has
-been signed to date. The
Chairman said this Board will
determine the status of these
zwl (..ignpe easements. by
Stie. tmefing i of Ju6ie3Th.-
Mr.,Robinson said he realized-
thi road was on the bottom of
the list two years ago, but that
because of the continued deve-
lopment of this area, this road
may now deserve a much
higher priority: He urged the
Board to take a close look at
this road at the time paving
S priorities are set: It was also
brought out that the road
grading is not adequate; that
Weeds at the.curve in the road
creates a safety hazard for
; children walking, or riding
their bicycles. The Chairman
said this roal will be discus-
sed at the next meeting.
Mr. Hubert Stripling of Oak
S Grove told the Board that the
alley between Duval and Mad-
ison Streets is partially closed.
The Chairman said this mat-
ter has been discussed at prior
meetings. Commissioner
Owens and the Sheriff said
they will look into this matter.
Mr. Stripling then informed
the Board that large boats
using the U.S. Intracoastal
Waterway between White City
and Lake Wimico do not slow
down when passing, small
boats, causing some accidents
and creating' a very serious
situation for the sportsmen
using small boats. Mr. Strip-
ling was advised to get the
name and description of the
boat and report it to the
Florida Marine Patrol.
Mr. Walter Kitchens told the
Board that he was in favor of
the creation of a new port as
discussed at the public meet-
ing of May 19th, but that he
sees many traffic problems
arising from such a port. He

million tons of grain per year.
He said it will take 14,815
barges, which would be 40
barges each day, to bring this
grain to Port St. Joe; or it will
require 1,095 hopper rail cars
per day, which must cross
U.S. 98 in Port St. Joe, holding
up auto traffic all day. He said
that some grain will come into
Port St. Joe by truck, which
means as many as 1,096 trucks
per day. He said all this will
create a'traffic problem that
this Board should begin plan-
ning for. He then said even
with the traffic problem this
industry will create, the Coun-
ty needs this facility, but the
County does hot need and
should work.against condomi-
niums and retirement pro-
jects.

formed the Board that a final

promptly when the wind blows
from the Gulf; therefore, to be
effective the spray must be.
applied quickly while the flies
are concentrated on the
beaches.
This is a safe program
which offers effective control
of this important pest for the
first time in the West Florida
area.
Questions regarding the pro-
gram should be addressed to

There are goats in Tennessee?

an engine starting up, even
the clatter of a feed bucket.'
The cause is not cowardice,
however, but an inherited
nerve disorder.
