The City Commission took
steps Tuesday night to in-
crease water, sewer and gar-
bage rates in the City for the
new budget year.
City Clerk Mike Wright
advised the Commission six
weeks ago that an increase
was necessary for the three
services to pay their operating
expenses without having to be
subsidized with ad valorem
taxes. Since the City has no
spare ad valorem taxes to put
in the services, without rob-
bing funds from some other
service, the increase in rates
is being considered.
Under the plan now under
consideration, the water rates
will go up by 10c per thousand
gallons. The minimum rate
charge will be reduced from
the present $5.76 to $4.80, but
the amount of water service
allowed under the minimum
will be reduced to 3,000 gal-
lons. Under the old minimum
rate, users were allowed 4,000
gallons, plus sewer service for
the $5.76 charge.
GARBAGE CHARGES
Garbage service, which has
been losing money for the past
/several years, will be raised to
a more realistic rate, charg-
ing more if all categories, but
showing sharp increases in the
rates of the heavy users.
Residential garbage rates
will be increased from the
present $3.50 to $4.50 for a
twicea week-pick-up. Profes-
sional business customers will
be charged $10.00 a month
under the new rate for a five
. day a week pick-up; up from
the present $6.00 charge. Busi-
ness customers, now charged
$10.50, will have their rates
increased to $20.00. Heavy
users of the service, such as
super markets, will see their


rates increased from $30.00 to
$50.00 a month.
The new rates are expected
*


to take in $95,622 for the
coming year; Estimated ex-
penses for the department for


fiscal 1978 are expected to be
$98,424, still reflecting a slight

Oak Grove Residents Rushing to



Tie Into Water, Sewer System


The people of Oak Grove
waited for at least eight years
since they first made the
request of the Gulf County
Commission for a water and
sewer system until they hook-
ed up the first service last
'week.
, Now that the services are in

V According to Port St. Joe


water and sewer department
superintendent G. L. Scott, in'
a report Tuesday night, over
26 water meters have already
been set in the community
since water was first turned
on late last week. Scott said
more than 40 sewer customers
have already been tied in also.
The sewer was ready before

mers were allowed to hook up

conditions which resulted
from a long period of rain this
month.
Those who have already
been hooked to sewer must
now come back and attach to
the water system, also.
Scott warned the Commis-
sion Tuesday night, that the
County must be alerted to
watch for people failing to
disengage their pump water
supply from their dwelling


when the central system, is
hooked up. "We can't allow
this condition to exist because
it stands the possibility of
polluting our city water sys-

system has been sterilized and
is maintained in a sterile
condition.
Residents of Oak Grove who
plan to hook up to the'system


must first go by the Court
House to get a permit and
approved installation plan and

Hall to pay a water meter

A familiar sight to anyone who goes into St. Joseph's Bay in a boat
is the sight of a school of porpoise which-regularly follow boats and play,


putting on a show which almost takes the mind of fishermen off why they
are in the Bay in the first place. This school of porpoise was shot last
week as The Star photographer went by boat to the outside of St. Joseph's
Peninsula to take pictures of the shrimp boat which burned last week. St.
Joseph's Bay has its share of the porpoise population.


The County Commission has
Relented its position on financing the
Gulf County branch of the Regional
Library and given them a few more
dollars for their operation next year.
We congratulate them on their
decision.
One of the County Commission-
ers, Otis Davis, Jr., told us, "We
couldn't just. go along with their
request because they had not given
us a break-down of their budget and
showed us how the Gulf County
dollars would be spent, specifi-
cally." .
We appreciate Commissioner
Dayis' position. We know he and
other Commissioners on the Board
trusted the Regional Library to do
the right thing by Gulf County, but
we have to recognize that auditors
don't accept "trust" as a reason for
spending tax money. The financial
Plan must, be put down on paper.

You may think, as you read
further,, that this bit smacks of the
male chauvinist. In reality, it
smacks of the fat female.
A study made recently by the
university of Illinois said Americans
were, using a cumulative figure, 2.3
billion pounds overweight..
Of this excess blubber, to which
we confess to owning our part, 800
million pounds was found on men.
The women supplied the rest or
some 1.5 billion pounds. That's a lot
of extra woman!
Assuming the figures are right,
the ladies make up nearly twice as
much as the men in excess weight.
Yet, the husband is the one which


Several of our local political
subdivisions have, gotten themselves
into trouble in the past for helping
these "good causes" with a cash
contribution, only to get their
knuckles rapped by the state audi-
tors for not requiring a written
statement of how the money is to be
used.,
We think that in the future the
Commission should spell out to the
Regional Library just what they
require in the way ,of a budget
request presentation, then come to a
fair agreement of a financial plan
for the library and other services.
We'll repeat a past statement: If
we can't adequately fund some
program, let's re-assess our priori-
ties, drop those programs we cannot
adequately fund and put our money
into those we want most, allowing
them the necessary funds to be a
real service to the people. ,


gets the nagging about, "You should
lose a few pounds". We know from
personal experience that this is so.
The professors making the study
have come up with the estimate that
the energy used to support all this
extra weight, in extra food, produc-
tion, harvesting, transportation,
etc., would run 900,000 autos for a
year.
And there would be almost
enough fat women available to tell
the men how to drive them.
Seriously, though, ladies, don't
take this report so seriously that you
over-react in a fit of panic. You are
awfully cuddly when you are just a
smidgen on the plump side.


Most homeowners are look-
ing for ways of reducing
maintenance in their yards
and gardens. The use of a
mulch around plants can
greatly reduce the time spent
mowing and' weeding.
A mulch consists of any kind
of material applied to the soil
surface around plants to con-
trol weeds, conserve mois-
ture, and moderate soil tem-
perature. The mulch material
may be organic such as cor- -
post, bark, leaves, grass clip-
pings or similar material; or
inert such gravel, pebbles or
polyethylene film. Mulches
suppress weeds' when the
mulch material itself is weed-
free and is applied deeply
enough to prevent weed germ-
ingtion or smother existing
smaller weeds.'An occasion&M
weed may poke through the
mulch, but it can be easily
pulled out.
Mulch materials have many
beneficial effects upon the soil
and plants. They prevent loss
of water from the soil by

evaporation. Moisture moves
by capillary action to the
surface and evaporates if not
covered by a mulch. Mulching
will prevent crusting of the
soil surface, thus improving
absorption and percolation of
water into the soil and at the,
same time, eliminating ero-
sion.
Maintenance of a more uni-
form soil temperature can be
obtained by mulching. The
mulch acts as an insulator
that keeps the soil cool under
intense sunlight and warm
during cold spells.
Organic materials used as a
mulch can improve soil struc-
ture and tilth. As it decays the
material works down into the
topsoil. Decaying mulch also-

flowers to enter the eye.
Consequently, those dark
mulches give plantings more
attractive appearance.
The time to apply a mulch
on most established ornamen-
tal plants is in the spring.
When applying a mulch to
newly set vegetables or orna-
mental plants, do so after they
are put into place and tho-
roughly watered.
For best results, apply
mulch at least 2 to 4 inches
deep over the whole area; but
avoid covering the crowns of
low-growing ornamental
plants. Keeping the layer deep
enough to do the job is
important. This means that
morve mulching' material
should be: added to the older
layers to get the maximum
benefits of mulching.
Many organic materials,
such as straw, wood chips, and
sawdust are rich in carbohy-
drates and low in nitrogen.
Usually, you will find it bene-
ficial to add nitrogen fertilizer
to the material before apply-
ing it as a mulch. One to two
cups of fertilizer high in
nitrogen (ammonium nitrate,
sodium nitrate or ammonium
sulfate) for each bushel of
organic material will supply
the needed nitrogen.
When plastic film or a
aluminum foil is used as a
mulch, it is essential that
fertilizer be applied before
placing the mulch material on
the soil. Broadcast an incor-
porate into the top 2 to 3 inches
of soil a complete fertilizer at
the rate of 2 pounds per 100
square feet of garden area.
The mulch material reduces

Bible Notes


Daniel 9:3, 18-19
KEY WORD: Intercession
for Revival
Verse 3: "And I (Daniel) set
my face unto the Lord God, to
seek by prayer and supplica-
tions, with fasting, and sack-
cloth, and ashes:"
Verse 18: "0 my God,
incline thine ear, and hear;
open thine eyes, and behold
our desolations, and the City
..wich'is called~by, thy name:
for we do not present our
supplications before thee for
our righteousnesses, but for
thy great mercies."
Verse 19: "0 Lord, hear; O
Lord, forgive; O Lord, heark-
en and do; defer not, for thine
own sake, 0 my God: for thy
city and thy people are called
by thy name."
Again this week I am contin-
uing the search for biblical
examples for God's people to
use to get revival in the
Church. First we really must
decide if the Church (all born
again believers) wants a fresh
out pouring of God's blessings.
If the Church be revived then
a great soul winning move will
begin. But, until it does then
souls will continue to be lost to
Satan and hell.
Daniel was praying for his
people, Israel, in captivity.
However, let's follow his ex-
ample of prayer. First he
DETERMINED to go before
the Lord God. He did this
humbly and with a 'profound


sense of sin' (Verse 18). Of
course, God hears all and sees
all but it is necessary to ask
Him to intervene in the battle
for revival.
The people of the Church are
being brought low by sin and
satanic action. We cannot
bring our needs to God in our
righteousness, but only in the
mercy of God..(Verse ,19) As
Daniel 'said let us say, 'For
,your sake 0 God because wet
are your people, called by
your name.' Church lets begin
now to ask God to pour out His
best blessings on us. The
unsaved are dependent on us
for an example of the concern
of Christ!

ETAOIN SHRDLU

BY WESLEY R. RAMSEY
..


LAST TUESDAY Dr. P. V. Poonai or
someone summoned a corps of supporters to be
present while Dr. Poonai used a meeting of the
Municipal Hospital Board of Directors to score
the "inadequacies of the hospital and its staff";
complain that the administrator, Richard Zyski
and the Emergency Room doctor, Dr. Joseph
Vazquez were incompetent and that Dr. Vazquez
sent an unusual number of patients seen in the
ER to other hospitals for treatment. I suppose,
since the Board of Directors had "allowed" these
things to happen, he was also taking an indirect
swipe at the Board of Directors. I happen to be
one of that Board.
On this page, this week, I will express my
: opinion. You will find it nowhere else at any
Time. So here is my opinion of the matter, based
on first-hand knowledge of the situation and a
knowledge of past history of the hospital.

THE HOSPITAL is not inadequate for the
procedures it is equipped to do. The number of
procedures a hospital is allowed to do is
governed by its equipment and staff. The extent
and complexity of this equipment is regulated by


the Panhandle Health Systems Agency. You
have read about it and other groups like it
throughout the nation, which oversee medical
care. Their purpose is to concentrate more
complicated procedures to medical centers and
prevent duplication of facilities.
Even if Municipal Hospital had the cash
money on hand to install some of these services,
the Medical Services group would not allow it.
Municipal Hospital is and has been accredit-
ed on a national and state level for years. Not
every hospital in a small town like Port St. Joe
can make this statement. This means that the
services Municipal offers are accepted by the
national and state hospital associations. Periodic
and frequent inspections by experts keeps it
accredited. Most of the employees have been
here for years and the hospital keeps their
training up to date. They're your neighbors and
have been for many years.
The hospital continues to be accredited,
because the Board of Directors through the
years have made any changes or improvements
suggested or required by the inspection teams.
So, to say the hospital is "inadequate" is


over-ruling the Joint Commission on Accredita-
tion of Hospitals and the State Licensure Bureau,
who say it offers services just as good as any
hospital this size in the nation.

THERE WERE charges that an unusual
number of Dr. Vazquez' Emergency Room
patients were transferred to other hospitals.
This simply isn't so, and records of this and
other hospitals will prove it. '
The Board had heard these same complaints
several months ago. An audit was ordered of the
ER records. The audit showed that in a period
from December 1, 1977 to June 11, 1978, there
were 1,272 patients seen in the Emergency Room
by both Dr. Vazquez and Dr. Poonai.
Of these patients, 24 were transferred to
another hospital or referred to a specialist. This
accounts for two percent of patients seen in the
ER, transferred to other hospitals. Dr. Vazquez
transferred 14 of the patients.
That claim of Dr. Poonai's just doesn't hold
water.

THE INCOMPETENCY charge was an
emotional one by Dr. Poonai and isn't founded by
facts either.
Both Zyski and Dr. Vazquez have very good
credentials and their actions have proven their
credentials were not falsified. Zyski has two
master's degrees, one in business administration
and one in hospital management and Dr.
Vazquez is a Board Certified Family Practition-
er, as well as being licensed in other states. He
has many years of experience.


The Hospital has not had one single
complaint from the patients he has treated and
who are in a better position to know his abilities.
As a matter of fact, the Hospital Board has had
many compliments of Dr. Vazquez' abilities,
concern and care for the patient.
The Board can't buy the change of "incom-
petent". The hard evidence to back it up just
'isn't there.

THE BOARD itself isn't incompetent, either,
though this charge was never verbalized.
Most of us here in Port St. Joe have
witnessed the operation of Municipal Hospital
for many years. Some of us have witnessed its
progress and operations since the time it was
built.'
We have been fortunate that during all of this
history, the men charged with its business
affairs, at no salary, I might add, have done a
creditable job of its operation. It has always
provided adequate-medical facilities and has
paid its own way except for a very few months
during its 38 year history.
The thing which bothers me is that every
man on the Board has earned a reputation of
fairness, astuteness, honesty and right intentions
over a period of 20 to 30 years in this community.
Their integrity has never been questioned as
their actions have proven them to be what they
need to be. Now this reputation is questioned by
newcomers and a small nucleus of people are
willing to disregard a long period of good
reputation proof.
That bothers me.

REQUEST MADE'
Joanna Barnes, director of
the Adult Activity Center
made a request of the Com-
mission of the Board Tuesday
night that her organization be
allowed to renovate one of the
old Washington High School
buildings for use by their
center.
Miss Barnes said the Center
has a good chance of receiving
$42,000 in federal grants for
labor, tools and materials with
which to renovate the old
building, which is now nothing
but a concrete shell. The
Center had previously asked
the City tiodo the renovation,
but the City didn't have the
money to put into the project.
Miss Barnes said it now
appears as if the money will
be available if the Center can
lease one of the old buildings
forat least five years.
The Commission approved
the lease request.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission:
-agreed to discuss a joint
planning project, required by
the state and federal govern-
ment, with Wewahitchka and
Gulf County tonight at 7:00

major part of its required

Rotarians See Free


Enterprise Film


An interesting film bn the
free enterprise system and
why it works and socialism
doesn't, was presented to the
Rotary Club at their regular-
mneeting last Thursday.
The film featured a speech
by Rick DeVoss, president of
Amway Corporation. In the
filing, DeVoss used the formula
SMMW NR + HE. With the
formula, DeVoss answered
the question, "Why is this
country so prosperous?".
.'MMW" stands for. Man's
SMaterial Welfare. The re-
mainder of the formula points
ouit how this quotient is ar-
riied at through the use of
Sman's natural resources,
which is the "NR" of the for-
mula.
made up of everything on the
earth or under the earth.
"Everything we are and use
S comes from the earth. Other
nations have abundant re-
sources, but they have not
utilized them to the extent
America has. India has plenty
of resources but doesn't use
them. Japan has no resources,
but utilizes what it is able to
obtain from others", the
speaker said.
"Natural resources must be
used if they are to serve the
people and their needs", De-
.Voss pointed out.
The "HE" of the formula is
human interest. He pointed
out that mental and physical
interest in progressing are all
important to the process. "If
one knows he will better his
own position to work harder
and more, he will work hard-
e. 'If he knows he will receive
the same compensation, re-
gardless of how much or little'
he does, he will do just enough
toaget by", the speaker said.
'Another category added to
the formula was "XT". The
"X" is the familiar mathema-
tical, sign meaning "times"
and the "T" stands for tools.
:The speaker said that with
theiuse of tools, the laborer is
a6le to produce more at less
cost and therefore provides
the customer with a better.
product at less cost. There-
fore, the worker, being paid on


the basis of his production, is
able to make more money and
the people's needs are met.
le pointed out that the
Russian system of full .em-
ployment through the use of
manual labor rather than the
emphasis on the use of tools,
has resulted in the nation not
being able to feed its :own
people. The U. S., on the.other
hand,-with -the use of sophis-
ticated tools, is able to feed its
people, with far less workers,
and even provide food and
materials for a great part of
the world.
Tynn Collier, Port St. Joe's
new postmaster was taken
into the club as a new mem-
ber.
Guests of the club were Dr.
Pepper of Scottsboro, Ala.,
and Dr. Rick Morley of Bea-
icon Hill.
DeVoss gave an example,
using his son to point out the
futility of the socialistic sys-
tem.
He said, "When my son was
16 years old, I bought him a
car. He would drag with his
friends and make the race-car
noises of tires squealing on
take-off. I was buying the
tires. Also, he was on the road
all the time, transporting his
friends to this place and that. I
was buying, the gas.
When he 'became 18, the
car's expense became his. The
tire squealing stopped and the
extra trips were cut off. He
was now buying the tires and
the gas.
"The moral is that if the
tools and resources are state-
owned, they will be wasted
and not last so long. If the tools
and resources are privately
owned by individuals purchas-
ing stock and investing stock,
the tools and resources are
cared for and made to go just
as far as they possibly can."

Gulfs Expanding Agriculture May Soon Include Rice


Ten years ago, the only
crops grown in Gulf County
were pine trees and an occa-
sional patch or two of corn.
Everything else of an agricul-
tural nature was made up of
: back yard gardens, grown for
..family consumption.
Today, there are thousands
of acres of Gulf County lands
planted each year in soy
beans, maize, corn and otler
small grains. Agriculture has
become a large business in
Gulf County, with large com-
bines operating county agri-
cultural ventures.
This year, a new kid is
moving in on the agricultural
block; an innovation which
.*may mean another agricul-
tural revolution for the coun-
Sty, much as the shift from a
S pne crop yield of pine trees, to
Sthe varied grain operations
S now spread 'throughout what
was formerly considered al-
';:.: most worthless swamp land.
Rice is now being grown in
-an experimental plot by MK
Ranches in the Willis Landing
S. area. The growers are enthus-
iastic about their venture and
S feel they have hit on a crop
which will utilize the uniqie-
iness of Gulf's topography and
become a major crop in the


future.
At present, MK has an
experimental plot of ten acres
under cultivation and doing
nicely. According to Steven
Shoaf (rhymes with 'loaf'),
planner for MK and Otis
SDavis, Jr., farming operations
foreman, if all goes well, the
farming combine, which
plants several thousand acres
between the Howard Creek
and Willis Landing roads, they
will eventually plant up to
5,000 acres in rice, if .the pre-
sent experiment continues to
progress as well as it has
started.
, At present, the experimen-
tal plot has a thick growth of
the soft green rice shoots
sticking up about eight inches
above the flooded field of
water and they plan to have a
harvest in just a short while.
Shoaf says rice is; not en-
tirely new to Florida, but if
their- experiment works, this
will be the first time it has
,ever been grown commer-
cially successfully in the state.
Several years ago, an attempt
was made in the central part
of the state, but disease wiped
it out.
MK Ranches are planting
new varieties. In the experi-


mental field, the LaBonnet
and LaBelle strains are grow-
ing lustily. These two strains
are highly disease resistant.
NATURAL ATTRIBUTES
According to Shoaf, who
appears to be about 26 years
old, but seems to know a lot
about growing rice, Gulf
County has the three things
needed to grow rice success-
fully. There is plenty of level
land, plenty of water and a soil
which will hold water.
Younf Shoaf said, "Rice
growing is an expensive
operation because of the ex-
pense involved in pumping the
large volume of water needed
and the high cost of soil
preparation. Luckily, this
ground holds water well and
once we get it covered, the
water is there until it evapor-
ates or is pumped off".
The biggest problem here in
Northwest Florida is disease
and ilisects. Other rice-grow-
ing areas in the United States,
California, Mississippi and Ar-
kansas, don't have the disease
and insect problems prevalent
in this part of the country,
according to Shoaf. He.
thought the present strains
under investigation will be
able to thrive in spite of these


problems.
Working with the county
farming combine is a rice
expert, Lehman Fowler of
Brinkley, ArKansas. Fowler is
keeping a close eye on the
experimental plot here in Gulf
County and makes frequent
trips here to inspect' the
progress of the experiment.
PLANTING METHOD
According to Otis Davis, Jr.,
farm manager, rice has a 110
to 120 day growing period,
making it practical to plant
two crops each year. "The
only problem here is the need
for crop rotation", Davis said.


Presently, the farmers are
planning to rotate rice and soy
beans in the same fields.
Davis said, "Soy beans put
nutrients in the soil needed by
rice and rice returns the
compliment to soy beans."
One of the things the farm-
ers must do is to make sure
the field is level before the
crop is planted. "If the field
isn't perfectly level, we can't
flood evenly", Davis said. The
rice is planted from seed, with
a grain drill just as any other
grain is planted. Rice planting
to most people recalls pictures


of the people of the Orient,
stooping over in a flooded
field, planting rice shoots.
Before planting, the field is
fertilized. After planting, an
herbicide and nitrates are
applied to the field and after
the young shoots begin to
come up in about four days,
the field is flooded and re-
mains flooded until harvest
time. The water serves two
purposes: it keeps down
weeds and furnishes moisture
for the plants.
Shoaf pointed but that a
tremendous amount of water


is needed in the operation. If
we had to pump all that water,
our costs would go up tremen-
dously". As it is, rice costs the
farmer some $250 to $300 per
acre to produce. Shoaf says
this production cost is equiva-
lent to cotton.
The present experimental
crop was planted on July 5 and
was upon July 10. At present it
stands about eight inches high
and should double in size by
the time it is mature. Shoaf
says yield should be about 100
bushels per acre. A bushel of
rice weighs 45 pounds.


MARKET NEEDED
Although MK Ranches ex-
pects to gradually increase its
project to 5,000 acres, there
still is no area market for the
rice. "If we get into .eavy
production, we expect a mar-
ket to be made available",
Shoaf said.
This is the first serious
attempt to grow rice commer-
cially in Florida since the
ill-fated attempt several years.
ago. If it succeeds, and it
appears to be well on the way,
the crop could mean a new
industry for the state and
especially for Gulf County.

* ~ym ony*;.

Coming to Apalachicola Waterfront

for Concert Saturday, August 25


Performing spectacular
concerts along America's wa-
S terways from a unique Float-
ing Arts Center is not the only
way the American Wind Sym-
phony Orchestra integrates its
music into the life of a
community while it is in town.
One of the most important
facets of its redidency pro-
gram is for the entire 40-piece
orchestra to play for a church
service. While in Apalachicola
the music of the orhcestra will
be featured.Saturday, August
25,-at--the,6:0 p.mk service of
jthe St. Patrick Church on 6th


St. Public is invited.
The musical religious pro-
gram will be conducted and
incorporated within the
church's traditional worship
service. Now on a, 16,000 mile,
30-city tour, the orchestra will
present four wind orchestral
compositions each Sunday
morning.
'We originally tried this
type of service seven years
ago at the Southminsted Pres-
byterian Church in Mt. Le-
banon, Pennsylvania, exp-
plained Robert Austin Bou-
dreau. American Wind Sym-

phony Music Director. "It was
an experiment and we didn't
know how the worshippers
would respond. However, we
had an overwhelming and
heartwarming reception, even
to receiving a standing ova-
tion, and suddenly this new
.approach became an import-
ant part of our repertoire."
Designed to give the wor-
ship of God a "contemporary
face," B6udreau says this
approach actually is centuries
old. "Remember," the added,
"during the Middle Ages the
Church actually was the hub
of all artistic activity."
Although numerous reli-
gious compositions will be
performed by the Wind Sym-
phony during its 1978: tour,
Boudreau admits to having
four favorites that he likes to
ln within novrh -zri.


"Hymne," by Willem Van
Otterloo. If performing with a
choir from the community, the
orchestra will present
"Hymn," by Jacques Caster-
ede.
The Wind Symphony chruch
concerts are scheduled
throughout the 1978 season of
the orchestra, and are open to
members of all faiths,


This fall when veterans go to
register at their junior college
or university they will encoun-
ter less red tape in their
processing routine due to a bill
steered to passage by State
Representative Earl Hutto (D-
Panama City) this past ses-
sion.
"House Bill 654 will not only
save the veteran additional
processing time and red tape,
but it will lighten the work
load of Veterans Affairs Of-
fices located at the colleges
and universities," said Hutto.
In 1977 the Florida legisla-
ture passed an act providing
for the modification and
strengthening of a law giving
eligible veterans a 60 day
deferral for paying his tuition
and fees. "Unfortunately,
several procedures which the
new statute prescribed pro-
duced and undesirable in-
crease in bureaucratic paper-
work and red tape for both the
veterans and the institutions."
According to Hutto, the bill
will provide for a much sim-
pler process for the institution
administration to process a
"regular" deferral for the
veteran and, too, it will pro-
vide for more accurate report-
ing to the Veterans Adminis-
tration thus cutting down on
abuse and misuse of the
system.


"Hopefully we can see not bureaucratic paperwork and
only a better service for our taxpayers' money," said Hut-
veterans, but a real savings in to.

geon, Tax Collector, reported

nue has ordered that ACF

er Owens, seconded by Davis,
and unanimously carried that
this refund be made.

ported that on July 20, 1978, he
made a personal property
inventory inspection on items

vice Office. All items were in
place except the following:
240-5-SCM Typewriter Trans-
ferred to Custodian; 240-6-
Wood Desk Transferred to

proved the transfer of items
240-5 and 240-6 to the Custo-
dian's Office.
The Building Inspector filed
his daily inspection reports
number 270 through 274 on the
Oak Grove Project.
The Mosquito Control Super-
visor requested a budget a-'
mendment for his budget end-
ing September 30, 1978. A copy
of the budget is on file in the
Clerk's office. Upon motion by
Commissioner Branch, se-
conded by Commissioner
Kennedy, and unanimously'.
carried, the amendment was
approved.
The Board discussed the
inventory report made by
Tommy Pitts on the Road
Department equipment and
made orders which are on file
in the Clerk's office.
The Road Superintendent
reported a break-in at the
Road- Department. He said
that two tool boxes are mis-.
sing: that this has been report-'
ed- to -the ShPelff'.Thbe lTerk:
reminded the Board that all
break-ins, larceny of any type,
missing items of inventory,
fires that destroy or damage
property, and junked equip-
ment should be reported in
writing by the Supervisor
immediately.
The Road Superintendent
presented a glob of oil and said
that globs or clumps of oil just
like this have washed ashore
at Beacon Hill. Several people
attending this meeting said
that they have witnessed
clumps of oil on the beach at
Beacon Hill and along the Gulf
Beach near Cape San Bias.
The Attorney was instructed
to contact the proper state
authorities on this matter.
The Mosquito Control Super-
visor reported that Harold
Weatherspoon quit his job and
that Tim Beard has replaced
him.
Mr. Pitts then told the Board
that he has junked an old
fogging matching that cannot
be used by the County because
of the type chemical that is
now required. He said that
T.H. Stone Park can use this
junked equipment in their
fogging program and they
have requested it be turned
over to them. The Board gave
its approval.
Pitts then reported that he
has checked the street and
road signs that are now in
position; that he finds some
streets with no signs and finds
some signs (street names)
that are not correct according

to the official plats. Maps
were filed showing informa-
tion reported.
Commissioner Davis sug-
gested that the Board may be
giving Mr. Pitts more work
than he can do or overloading
him with work that the Road
Superintendent should be do-
ing. Commissioner Kennedy
agreed to this suggestion. In a
discussion that followed, Com-
missioner Branch pointed out
that Mr. Pitts was given the
title of Administrative Assist-
ant for the Secondary Road
Program because he is a
graduate' engineer; that his
salary was increased at that
time, and the minutes reveal
that he is to perform any job
he is requested to do by the
Board. Mr. Pitts said that he
was not overloaded, even
though he did some of his
extra work on his days off.
Commissioner Owens repor-
ted that a landowner on the
Fish Hatchery Road is com-
plaining because the flow of
water in the ditch along this-
road is causing his property to
wash into the ditch. The Road
Superintendent said he has
shallowed this ditch and is
now waiting to see if the road
will be paved during the next
budget year. He said he would
do whatever necessary to
correct this problem.
Commissioner Owens dis-
cussed the ground breaking
ceremony for the new High-
land View Bridge to be held at
11:30 a.m. on August 4th, 1978.
There was a motion by Com-
missioner Branch, seconded
by Commissioner Owens to
close the Courthouse at 11:30
a.m. in order that Courthouse
..employees could, attend .-this -
program, including a fish fry.
The Board discussed the
possibility of the purchase of a
used road grader owned by the
State Department of Trans-
portation. No decision made.
The Board approved the
proposal that the Community
Services Recreation Program
be placed under the supervi-
sion of the School Board for a
one year trial period.
The Mosquito Control Super-
visor said he had a request
from the property owner at
the Old Buckhorn Schoolhouse
to spread some dirt over an
area where the County once
covered some junked -cars.
The Board did not give its
approval.
Commissioner Owens said
that he and Curtis Hardy have
obtained a tank from a rail-
road car from St. Joe Paper
Company for use by the White
City Fire Department. He said
that the Fire Department is
now siphoning water from the
Intra Coastal Waterway which
contains salt, thereby damag-
ing the fire equipment. The
Board directed Tommy Pitts
to pick up this tank and place
it at the White City Fire
Station.
The Road Superintendent
was instructed to tag a junked
car for removal from the right
'of way on the County road
running from White City to
Overstreet.
The Chairman announced
that this meeting will stand in
recess until 4:30 p.m., July 27,
1978.
