what will probably be very
close to their final budget plan
for the coming fiscal year.
Still to be decided on is the
amount of pay raise county
employees will receive, if any.
With cries of anguish com-
ing from virtually every ser-
vice which depends oh county
tax money, the Commission
wound up with a financial plan
some $33,000 less than last
year's, after being presented
with requests for $2,177,380.00
The county budget last year
totaled $1,683,789: Thus far,
without considering any wage
hikes, the budget totals $1,-
650,776 for the coming year.
THREE CUTS
Only three areas of fi-
nancing .will receive less
money than last year, in this
first tentative. budget draft.
These are the maintenance
account for the old courthouse
in Wewahitchka, which was
ctit to $6,140 in the tentative
-budget- for a- reduction of .
$2,500; the Supervisor of Elec-
tion, reduced by $1,000 to a
total of $27,405 and the Gener-
al Fund, which was cut by
$5,400 to $73,690.
The General Fund cuts were
made by reducing the Library
:funding and cutting out the
county's participation in fi-
nancing the emergency room
doctor at Port St. Joe Munici-
pal Hospital. The Library
funding was cut by nearly
$7,000 from last year. In the
current budget year, Gulf's
libraries received $31,354. In
the new budget plan, they will
receive $24,399:
The County has been putting
$17,334 into the emergency
room fund for the past year.
INCREASES
Almost all of the 17 accounts
financed by the taxes levied
by the County Commission
showed some increase, rang-
ing from the low increase of
$21.00 for the Clerk's office to
the high of $26,300 for the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department
account..
Most of the other accounts
received nominal increases,
which will probably increase,
some more after pay in-
creases are considered.
The Sheriff's Department
received its $26,300 increase.
The Road and Bridge fund was
hiked by $18,500; Mosquito
Control by $2,800; Veterans
Service office by $86.00; Port
St. Joe Ambulance by $2,500;
Wewahitchka Ambulance, up
$2,300; Tax. Collector, $2,600
more; Agriculture Agent of-
fice, an additional $4,500;
Health Department hiked $3,-
300; Property Appraiser,-
$400.00; Board of County Com-
missioners, up $19,500.
Two funds, County Judge,
$700.00 and County Attorney,
$11,224. remained the same as
last year.
REQUESTS
Requests for more funds
ranged from the high of
$872,803 for the Road Depart-
ment to the low of $21.00 asked
for by the Clerk.
The Road Department Sup-
erintendent, who has long
suffered with equipment
shortages and wear, asked for
$400,000 for new equipment.
His request was sliced to
$30,000.
Further work on the budget
is scheduled for the next few
weeks before the final draft
will be offered for approval.


Wet Weather Curtails Pulpwood Supply



Heavy Rains Shut Down Paper Mill


Heavy rains in this part of Florida have made it a wet July in North
Florida and south Alabama and Georgia. To some, the heavy rains have meant
flooding conditions. To us here in Gulf County,.the rains have had an equally
devastating effect: it has shut down the St. Joe Paper Company, our main
source of income, for a period of time.
As the photo above show, the wood yard at the local paper factory is
empty. it's a difficult task to make paper without pulpwood, so the mill was shut
down yesterday for a short time, due to lack of wood. The wood shortage was
caused by too much water in the woods, making it impossible to harvest the 80
to 90 rail cars of wood needed each day to keep the mill operating.


According to Production Superintendent, Harold Quackenbush, the mill
will be down for a period of 10 days to two weeks, until the wood supply can be
replenished. Quackenbush said that during the down period, the mill will work
some of their forces to make needed'repairs.
According to Bill Simmons, who keeps up with rainfall in this area, Port St.
Joe had a total of 12.7 inches of rainfall during July. This is not a record for the
.month, as 20.6 inches were recorded d' ring Julyin 1975. Simmons said most of
this rainfall was experienced during the last two weeks of the month.
As any citizen of Port St. Joe knows, the area shown above is usually
filled with pulpwood, waiting to be transferred into the mill. -Star photo

Fred Kleeb Takes


Over VA Office


Fred J. Kleeb was employed
by the County Commission
last Thursday afternoon as its
first full-time Veterans Ser-
vice officer, to, replace Albert
Thames, who resigned from
the half-time position last
month. Thames had served as
Veteran Service officer for the
past 14 years, all of that time
on a part-time basis..
Kleeb took over the new
duties Monday morning of this
week, and is located in the
Veteran Service office at the
Gulf County Courthouse dur-
'ing the regular open hours of
the Courthouse.
The new service officer is a
retired Warrant Officer in the
U.S. Army. He spent 25 years
in the service, mostly serving
as an administrative warrant
officer.
Kleeb is a native of Slippery
Rock, Pennsylvania. He is a
member of the Veterans of
Foreign Wars and American

Legion. He is a member of the
Presbyterian Church.
Kleeb and his wife have
lived in Gulf County, on St. Joe
Beach for the past two years.
Thames, who also operates
a jewelry store here in Port St.
Joe, resigned the post due to
increasing responsibilities in
his business.


plant.and its effluent to moni-
tor the effect of domestic and
industrial sewage being treat-
ed in the same plant.
"The only black mark we
received" Simon said, "was a
report that an unusually high
fecal choloform count is being
discharged from the plant".
SSimon said the team deter-
mined the offending sub-
stance, causing the high
count, was coming from Syl-
vachem.
The City will meet with
Sylvachem representatives in
the near future to work some-
thing out to prevent the sub-
stance from coming into the
plant in its present form.
Simon said that EPA has
said some kind of disinfectant
must be used on the substance
to reduce the fecal choloform
count.
In a related item, Simon
reported that EPA will send a
team to Port St. Joe in the
near future to study the me-
thos used by the City to
determine costs for industry
using the facilities of the
plant.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business on
the short agenda Tuesday
night, the Commission:
-Notified Suwannee Trans-
fer, Inc., of Jacksonville that
the City expected them to pay
for three damaged pre-stress-

yesterday morning that
residents of Oak Grove
may begin hooking up to
the new sewer system re-

Residents of Oak Grove


who want to start work now
in their sewer hook-ups,
must first go to the Court-
house and obtain a permit
to attach to the service
from the Clerk's office.
The water system is cur-
rently being sterilized to
accept water customers.
The sterilization process is
complete, but the State
Board of Health must still


give its OK on the water
tests made after the pro-
cess. As soon as this appro-
val is made, customers
may begin hooking up to
that service also.
The Board of Health is
expected to have its report
early next week. If the
report does not meet the
requirements, further ster-
ilization must be done.

cut the County contributions to
$25,000. This isn't enough to pay
:even the fixed expenses which
everyone has to bear if they oper-
ate. There was no thought given


The current rate of inflation,
announced last week as being at
an annual rate of a little over 10
percent, is of a concern to every-
one. The only trouble is, nobody
wants to do what is necessary to
stop the rising costs.
Inflation is like being too fat
Sand needing. to. diet. Everyone
recognizes the need for action, but.
one must cut back on things which
are too enjoyable to cure the
problem.
For instance, most everyone
recognizes a need for a revamped
tax program, constraint on wage
and price demands and curbing of


to new books, periodical subscrip-
tions, etc. A library operates to
provide its constituents with read-
ing and reference material which
is up-to-date and adequate. Ours
cannot now buy these materials.
Commissioner Otis Davis, Jr.,
made the comment, "I'm tired of
thinking of the 'citizen'; I'm going
to think of the 'Taxpayer' and
what he needs."
Mr. Davis' concern is'com-
mendable. The person paying the
bill should be considered first of
all. From what we can observe,
however, it seems as if the library
is unique in that its clientelle is
mostly those same 'Taxpayers'
Mr. Davis is interested in.
We admire the Commission
for thinking economy in an era
when. the trend is the other way.
We think, however, the interests
of the citizens would be better
served if the economy would be in
the realm of cutting out some
marginal services entirely and'
adequately funding the services
we have left in such a manner
that they will be a benefit to the
people using them:


federal spending. These, admitted-
ly, if done in the proper manner,,
would slow or stop inflation in our
country.
The tax program might affect
us individually the wrong way, the
wage or price restraint may curb
our income or the federal spend-
ing may remove a source of in-
come vital to our present standard
of living as individuals.
Boil it all down and it spells
"s-e-l-f-i-s-h".
We'll never curb inflation until
we are ready to do a little sacri-
ficing. Are you ready?


Our Bay Is Alive!

St. Joseph's Bay is alive with marine and bird life. Any morning, you can
go by the Bay's edge and see the wildlife feeding and rearing its young. One of


the bird specimen being seen in plentiful numbers is the brown Pelican, which
has always made the Bay its home. Here in this picture is another marine-
oriented bird, the long-necked white Ibis (according to one of our staff) is
shown shepherding its young among the marsh grasses which line the bay,
looking for food. The picture was snapped at.the foot of 16th Street.

People Returning to Nature


Some people call it return-
ing to nature. Others simply
are tired of battling traffic
and breathing polluted air.
Whatever the reasons, more
and more people are getting
out of the cities and building
homes in the country.
Instead of designing sub-
divisions with rows and rows
of homes, contractors are
increasingly buying up for-
ested land' outside city limits
and fitting houses in among
trees, leaving as much of
the natural setting as possi-
ble.
Needless to say, this trend,
of country living is placing a
heavy -burden' upon those ,
people whose job ,it is to.
provide fire protection.
There are more than 700
fire departments in Florida
and upwards of 500 of them
are either completely or par-


tially manned by volunteers.
Their task -is monumental.
Municipal departments do a
very adequate job of battling
blazes within their precincts,
and the Florida Division of
Forestry limited wildland
fires to less than one per-
cent of the 26 million acres
under its protection in 1978.
But rural structural fires
are still a major concern.
.Volunteer departments us-
ually respond to fires in
areas where there is a very
limited water supply, and
many of the fires are loca-
ted several miles from a fire
station.
SNationally the firb losses
to farm property alone
jumped from $165 million in
1960 to an estimated $242
million in 1970. Total fire
losses in rural America are
estimated at well over $1

Dear Editor:
Is America so far from its
humble beginnings, that we
have forgotten the principle
upon which this country was
founded? Freedom of choice.
The freedom to choose, se-
lect, advocate and pursue,
that job, that recreation,
that church, that best suits
the individual.
'The thrust of the current
drive to legalize casinos, is
to put the referendum on the
November ballot. Then the
people can continue to exer-
cise freedom of choice.
Gambling isas old as so-

forms. Now, in Florida, ma-
ny thousands of people have


many gambling choices. The

jai all, the games of
chance at church fairs, the
'church-sponsored raffles,
bingo, games, etc. All these
gambling choices, available
for decades, are available at
this moment, to anyone who
chooses to play. To suggest,

card games, roulette, or dice

Bible Notes


I John 4:16-17
KEY WORD: Where I dwell
"And we have known and
believed the love that God
hath to us. God is love; and he
that dwelleth in love dwelleth
in God, and God in him.
Herein is our love made
perfect, that we may have
boldness in the day of judg-
ment: because as he is, so are
we in this world."
Hallelujah! The Word says
we have known and believed
the love God has for us. To
know God's love is life chang-
ing. When we live in love we
live in God and God lives in us.
Can you imagine God living in
ME? Yes, He really does. And
our love is made perfect in
God. God says we will have
assurance (boldness) in the
day of judgment. This is
surely blessed assurance to
know that at the judgement
seat of God, His love is
sufficient for eternity.
Then a statement as bold as


life itself: "because as he is,
SO ARE WE IN THIS
WORLD." As God is so am I!
Not in the bye and bye, BUT
NOW. In this world. This is
power living. Recognize it and
appropriate it in your life,

ETAOIN SHRDLU

BY WESLEY R. RAMSEY
"


DOG DAYS are now officially in motion.
According to the Almanac, they started on
July 30 and will continue for 40 days. That
means 40 days of hot, muggy weather, with
plenty of rain.
In other words, more of the same.
In case any of you have wondered, we
have had a pretty fair amount of rain
already. It appeared as if Mother Nature was.
tuning up for Dog Days during the two weeks
proceeding around here. Two weeks ago, we
had a total of 10 inches of rain during the
week, and last week wasn't a whole lot
dustier.
Even before Dog Days came, we had
already had our share.
It's .a pity Dog Days come during the
month of August, when it gets so hot without


the steam, rain and humidity of Dog Days
adding to the misery.
.Like it or not, Dog Days are here.
Prepare to mortgage your soul to the electric
company to pay the air conditioner bill.

THE BILLY MARTIN-REGGIE JACKSON
soap opera continues to unwind.
Over the week end, former Yankee man-
ager, Billy Martin, was re-hired by the
Yankees to manage the club beginning with
the 1980 season.
When asked what this decision meant for
him, Jackson said he felt it meant he would
not finish out the present season with the
Yankees.
I would say that was a fair assumption.
Neither Billy nor Reggie seem to be able
to get along with their teammates wherever


they go. Each is continually shooting off his
mouth, getting into fights, arguing, and be-
coming the center of trouble.
That's a heck of a way to live.

TEDDY KENNEDY has finally thrown
down the gauntlet and said he cannot support
president Carter in his proposed national
health insurance plan. Carter wants to wait
until the treasury and the nation can afford it
and Teddy wants it now.
With the start of presidential elections
only a year away, it makes snese that Teddy
would make his move now, to break away
from a continued support of Carter. Teddy
has undoubtedly succumbed to the lure of the
call of the White House and decided he will
make his bid.
If it hadn't been the national health
insurance question, it would have been some-
thing else.
I think President Carter is in the right
pew for once. It doesn't make sense for the
government of the United States or any other
government in this nation to undertake some-
thing it can't afford. We have already started
so many governmental services it is begin-
ning to break the back of the tax payer to
finance them. This is the situation which


brought on Proposition 13 in California and is
the hottest proposition sweeping the nation
today.
Before the honeymoon with Proposition 13
is all over, I think we will see some other
government programs we had to have at the
time, fade into the evening twilight, never to
be seen again.
It's going to be interesting to see if the
people really want tax reductions. When the
aftermath of Proposition 13 cuts government
services throughout the nation, the resulting
howl of indignation from the people, or lack
of a howl, will show whether or not they
really meant business.

THE DOLLAR .CONTINUES to fall in
value in Japan. As of this writing, it's down
to about 193 Yen to the Dollar in that land of
the rising sun.
Of course, this situation is causing con-
cern for Americans, but it is also probably
causing concern for the Japanese. It is fast
becoming cheaper to buy American when only
a short while back, it was cheaper to buy
Japanese.
The thing I'm waiting to see, is if the
Japanese will come to the financial aid of
America to the extent America aided Japan
after the war..

homes would riot give enough


flow' to such a system and
would not allow it toproperly'
digest the raw sewage. DER
then ruled the developers
must put temporary septic
tanks down for thefirst 18
homes and change them over
to the sewage system after
that time.
The developers didn't notify
the County Commission of this
development, so the Commis-
sion stopped the development
last week until they could be
officially notified of what was
actually taking place.
In. a meeting last Thursday,
Sudduth arid Harrison gave
the Commission the official
word of DER, stating they
were going ahead with plans
to construct the sewage collec-
tion system throughout the
subdivision as they told the
Board. "We just won't put the
treatment plant in until a
sufficient number of houses
are built", Harrison stated.
In the temporary septic
tank plan, state regulations
will be met on the installation,
which will allow only every
other lot to be built on until the
sewage system is hooked up.
This will allow .for the state
requirements of a septic tank
every half acre.
After the presentation was
made to the Board, Commis-
sioner Everett Owens moved
that a temporary variance be
granted for no more than 18
houses in the subdivision to be
served with septic tanks, pro-
vided they meet state specifi-
cations. Then, when the cen-
tral system is installed, all
homes on septic tanks must be
changed over. Owens' motion
passed unanimously.

terent things.
Sheriff Murphy says, that if
you are suspicious at all,
please call the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department or any
local police department and
have the people checked out.
If they are legitimate exter-
minators they will not mind
you checking them out, if they
are not legitimate you will
probably save yourself $500.00
to $2,000.00.
Sheriff Murphy says that
there are many reputable.
exterminating company
working in our area and that if
you have reason to believe you
need an exterminator, call one
of these. Do not take the wodt
of someone that'comes to your
house and wants to inspect
your premises for free. Sheriff.
Murphy says that if this has.
been done to you in the past,
you may have already been
the victim of a con, and that if
you have, then you are a
prime prospect for another
Con. Sheriff Murphy says that
these people get together and
exchange names, and one
group will hit a family one
year; the next group will hit
the same family the following
year..


Sheriff Murphy says, that if
you ever let one of these
people inspect your house for
termites or whatever, you can
rest assured they will find
them. They will also find
snakes in your attic, because
they carry the snakes with
them, and they come out and
show you the snake that they
supposedly found in your attic
and then offer to exterminate
your house forprices up to two
or three thousand dollars.
Sheriff Murphy says that the
answer is, to not let them
inspect your house under any
conditions without calling a
local law enforcement agency,
and have them checked out
first, to see if they are
legitimate. Do. not call the
number that they give you,
this is some of their friends
who will verify that they are
legitimate. Call the Gulf Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office or your
local Police Department to
have them check.
So be aware of these con-
men. Many thousands of dol-
lars a year are conned out of
mostly elderly people who
have to hire their work done
around the house. If someone

Following too Close Listed


As Major Cause of Accidents


Following too closely con-
tinues to create dangerous
situations on our highways
said the Florida Highway
Patrol recently.
Patrol records indicate
that the fourth leading cause
of all motor vehicle crashes
in Florida last year was
following too closely. The
total was 14,995 crashes.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "Follow-
ing too closely not only
places the driver who is
guilty of this violation in a
dangerous position but other
drivers who attempt to pass
slower moving vehicles often
become involved in a


crash."
The Patrol recommends
that when following another
vehicle, drivers should' keep
at least one car length for
every ten miles of speed
between them.
The two-second rule. me-
thod can help drivers main-
tain proper following di-
tance. When the vehicle you
are following passes a sha-
dow, signor other marker,
start counting one thousand
one, one thousand two. If
your vehicle .passes the
same point before you finish
saying one thousand two,
you are too close.
The director said, "These


driving tips are only 'for
good weather and road.
When raining or on a loose
surface road, additional dis-
tance should be kept."

Graham Learns Shrimping First Hand


Senator Robert Graham, Democratic
candidate for Governor, who has pledged to
work at 100 different jobs prior to the Septem-
ber 12th Primary to better 'understand the
concerns of the people of Florida, is shown
with Lucky McLeod, Captain of the "St. Joe
Pride," on.a recent night shrimping trip from
Apalachicola where Graham worked as a


crew member on the "St. Joe Pride." Gra-
ham has already completed more than 85
workdays on various jobs around Florida.
Capt. Lucky McLeod said, "He worked'
as hard as any crewman we had. He con-
vinced me -that he is interested in my work
and the seafood industry. He's my man for


Governor."
Sen. Graham, left, listens, as Captain
McLeod explains the functions of the various
parts of a shrimp net.
Local campaign headquarters for Graham
are located at 116 Monument Avenue in Port
St. Joe.


A youngster's intei-est in'
firearms is part of the nor-
mal process of growing up.,
The, Flo'rida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-


sion today urged parents to
help satisfy this. interest
while instilling a respect for
guns and a firm commit-
ment to safety.


- The Commission is offer-
ing a twelve hour course in
hunter and firearm safety in
Wewahitchka' at the, Electri-
cal Coop Office. The. course,
sponsored by the Gulf Coun-
ty Farm Bureau, will be
held on Tuesday and Thurs-
day evenings beginning Au-
gust 1st and running through
August 15th. from seven to
9:30 p.m. The course will
culminate in a range firing
session and simulated hunt-
ing trip in the field on Au-
gust 17th.'Pre-registration is
not necessary. However,
those interested in the
course may telephone the

formation.
The primary purpose of
the course, according to
Earl Price,. Farm Bureau
Safety Representative and
Hunter Safety instructor, is
to teach proper gun handling
in a hunting situation. How-
ever, more than that, it of-
fers the opportunity -for a
youngster, or adult to be-
come familiar with the fun-
damentals of firearms hand-
ling and firearms safety
while at the same time
.opening the possibility of a
challenging and interesting
hobby.
"Quite likely," said Price,
"many who take this course
will never buy a hunting
license. But, the knowledge
gained by taking the course
may lessen their fears of
firearms and foster an in-
terest in conservation and
wildlife."
The course includes clas-
ses in proper gun handling,
survival, first aid, rifle
marksmanship, wildlife iden-
tification, a brief history of
game management and the
laws and regulations pertain-
ing to firearms and the tak-
ing of game.
