PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1978


Board Chairman Says County Not Paying Its Way




Regional Library Committee Threatens to Drop Gulf
.' ', .. i .


if a suggestion to be
presented to the Northwest'
Regional Library System
board of directors by its
executive board is approv-
ed, Gulf County will be out
of the library business.
According to a letter,
written by Bill Lyles of
Port St. Joe, president of
the Regional Library
Board, if approved by the
full Board, they will with-


draw their cooperative pro-
gram from serving Gulf
County, effective October 1
of this year.
Lyles' letter, sent to the
County Commission, the
City Commissions of We-
wahitchka and Port St. Joe
and the Gulf County Li-
brary Advisory Board, the
executive board of the Re-
gional Library is recom-
mending that the coopera-


tive status be removed
from Gulf County for fail-
ure to adequately fund
Gulf's share of the Region
expenses.
In drafting the coming
year's budget, the Gulf
County Commission first
cut 10 percent from their
level of funding the library,
then later re-instated the
cut to fund at the level of
last year.


The Regional Library
says Gulf has funded the
same amount each year for
the past several years, and
that rising costs dictate
that there be some increase
in funding. The Region was
asking for $36,854 from
Gulf and the County agreed
to funding of $28,000, in-
cluding matching funds
from the State of Florida.
In his letter, Lyles says:


"The Executive Board..
has no alternative but to
recommend to the full
board of the Northwest
Regional Library System
that the existing relation-
- ship between Gulf County
and the regional library
system be terminated as of
October 1, 1978 because of
the unwillingness or inabil-
ity of the Gulf County
Commission to provide its


fair share of the total
expenses of the regional
library system."
The letter goes on to say:
"The executive board be-
lieves that it is the proper
policy of the Northwest
Regional Library System
to take all possible actions
to foster and support the
provision of library ser-
vices in member counties
such as Gulf County;' how-


ever, such an action on the
part of the regional library
board can be effective only
if the member counties
take the initiative to fully
support the program in all
aspects, including financ-
cial."

Lyles says: "To allow
Gulf County to continue to
participate in the regional
library system without


meeting its fair share of the
expenses of the regional
system incurred by operat-
ing in Gulf County will
require the other counties
in the system to subsidize
library service in Gulf
County. Needless to say,
the executive board does
not believe that such a
subsidy from the other
counties to Gulf County is
fair or proper."

Season Starts Tomorrow Night In Wewa


For the second time since the series began several years
ago, the Port St. Joe Sharks and the Wewahitchka Gators will
open their football seasons tomorrow night in Wewahitchka.
J The game, to be played at 8:30 p.m., Port St. Joe time,
iwill pit almost the same teams as last year, when the Gators
/defeated the Sharks, also for the second time in the long
series.
The Gators have installed a new set of bleachers within
the last few days to take care of some of the expected large
crowd who will be attending. Lack of seating in Wewahitchka
has been one of the major reasons the games have been
: played in Port St. Joe in the past, where seating is plentiful.
Port St. Joe's head coach, Wayne Taylor says his Sharks
will be hitting the field Friday night with 11 seniors, 12
juniors and six sophomores on the team. Last year's squad
was made up chiefly of juniors and sophomores. "We should
be stronger and improved this year", Taylor said.
The Sharks put on a disappointing showing, so far as the
yr scoreboard goes, in the jamboree last week end, but coach
Taylor pointed out that the Sharks out-played the Bristol
Bulldogs all over the field. "We gave up the ball on the six
yard line which led to Bristol's score", Taylor said. "We
moved the ball very well and carried it to the four as the
game ended. We had two touchdowns called back by illegal


With Gators


WEWAHITCHKA GATORS
Wewahitchka head coach BoBo Owens says, "Those who
are picking us to be a major threat in our class just haven't
been here to see our team". Owens, who has had good
success with the Gators during his few years in Wewahitch-
ka, says he has only nine lettermen returning from last
year's team. "We have a number of kids who didn't even play
last year. We're really young", he said.
Area writers pick the Gators to be a major threat against
Tallahassee's FAMU for the Class A crown this year.
Owens says his team has worked hard to get ready for
the season and they plan to try their best to win every game.
Owens has picked his starting line-up for Friday's opener
as follows:
Center, Ken Strange; guards, Steve Brown and Jimmy
Weeks; tackles, Sam Mattraw and John Filtrop; ends,
Mike Chumney and Kenny Myers; flanker, Kelan Setterich;
quarterback, Tim Pippin and running backs, James Wright
and Nate Dozier.
On defense, it will be: ends, David Norris and Charles
Porter; tackles, Phillip Hall and Mike Chumney; lineback-
ers, Nate Dozier, Alan Nelson, Duke Vann and Greg Mathis;
halfbacks, Ken Whitfield and Tim Strange and safety, James
Wright.


procedure and that hurts", Taylor pointed out.
"We should have more strength and experience this
year, but we have depth problems, as usual", Taylor said.
"Six of our boys who would have played this year, quit
between spring practice and game time this year, which will
cause us problems. We were planning to run two platoons for
the first time this year, but the loss of these six men cancels
that", Taylor said.
The veteran coach pointed out, "Our team this year has
worked harder than any team we have had in the past. If this
helps decide a season, we should be an exciting team to
watch this year."
Taylor said probable starters against the Gators Friday
night on offense will be: Chuck Pollock and Rodney Herring
at ends; Tom Bouington and John Anderson at tackles,
Carlton Wilkerson and Woody' Jones at guards and Jerry
Shores as center. Kevin Watts will be at slotback, Rick
Taylor at quarterback, Dusty May at fullback and Mike
Cassani at tailback.
Defensively, the tentative line-up will be: Carlton
Wilkerson and Tom Bouington at end, Ronald Minger and
Joey Fontaine at guard, Chuck Pollock and Blaine Cox as
outside linebackers, Dusty May and Vic Gilbert as inside
linebackers. Ronald Pickett and Michael Harris will be at
halfback and Castlederra Gant as safety.

Gulf County's 6,235 Demo-
crats, 123 Republicans and 25
Independents will go to the
polls Tuesday of next week to
cast theii first primary votes
in the fall elections.
Polls throughout the state
will be open from 7:00 a.m., to
7:00 p.m., local time, to allow
for the balloting.
Here in Gulf County, there
has been no changes reported
in the polling places for each
of the 11 precincts.'
A move was made to create
a new precinct at Howard
Creek this past summer, but
there was not enough time left
before election to allow for the
additional precinct to be
made. There was also some
question as. to whether the
precinct could be created
before the next federal census.
Every precinct in Gulf
County will cast their votes by
voting machines for the first
time in history. The larger
precincts have used machines
for several years, with only
Overstreet still using the pa-
per ballot last election. Over-
street will have its own ma-
chine this year.
Voting places in Port St. Joe
are:
Precinct 8, Fire Station;
precinct 9, Stac House; pre-
cinct 10, Scout Hut; precinct
11, Centennial Building.
Highland View and White
City precincts will each vote in
the fire stations of these two
communities. The Beaches
will vote in the old Wright
Building on Highway 98.
In other precincts about the
county, Precinct 1 will vote in
the Wewahitchka City Hall.
Precinct 2 will vote in the
White building. In Dalkeith,
Precinct 3, voters will go to
the Crutchfield Building in
Honeyville. Overstreet voters
will go to the Community
Building.

We've Made Up


I .Our Mind


Looking over the candidates for
our state offices, we think the voters
of Florida have probably one of its
: better fields of candidates; candi-
dates who are qualified and who
seem eager to do a good job.
S Of course, we can't vote for
them all. We have to make a choice
and have only one vote each to cast.
Looking over the field of Con-
gressional candidates, we have
picked Earl Hutto as the man for
whom we will vote. The rest of the
field are all good, capable men, but
we know Hutto, personally, to be an
outstanding man of unquestioned
honesty. We think he will do us the
best job.
For Governor, we'll go for Jim
Williams. Others attract us, such as
Bob Graham and Wayne Mixson, in
. particular. Williams has the respect
of even his opponents, both for
: ability and for honesty. You can't
: beat an endorsement like that. Too,
Williams performance for us here in
` Port St. Joe in getting the ball rolling
for a new bridge at Highland View
hasn't hurt his credibility in our
: view.
For Secretary of State, we'll
: vote for Joe Little. Both Little and
Firestone impress us. Little is from
Gainesville. and Firestone from Mi-
ami. We think Northwest Florida
; will fare better from this office with
Little.
For state Attorney General,
we'll vote for the man from Talla-

official can do except to represent
the people he considers his consti-
tuents to the best of his ability. If
.that ability isn't good enough, he cani
expect a change at next election day.
If a politician starts making us
promises about what he will and will
not accomplish, he automatically
loses our vote. -He can't perform
these miracles. Moreover, he tells us
he doesn't know enough about
government to know he can't per-
form these miracles, or he thinks we
are so stupid we don't know he can't.
We look at a man's integrity, a
man's earnestness, his past per-
formance and his management of
his private affairs. If we approve of
this and his ideas, we vote for him.
That's the key; we vote on
election day. That vote is cast for the
candidate of our choice. We hope you
will do the same next Tuesday.

dates seem to .be well qualified, but
Smith's Tallahassee home place bal-
ances our scales in his favor.
For State Comptroller, we'll
have to give Jerry Lewis the nod for
a second term. He has done a
creditable job in his first term and
we feel deserves another.
The same goes for Bill Gunter as
State Treasurer. Florida is lucky to
have a State Treasurer with the
governmental experience of Bill
Gunter.
Pat Thomas, the middle-aged
Quincy war-horse gets our vote for
Senator. Pat has represented Gulf
County well during his first term of
office and is always ready to be of
service if anyone calls. One would
almost think he was from Gulf
County, for the attention we get from
him.
To replace Billy Joe Rish, a
choice we don't like to have, we
will have to go with Don Lamonica.
With Rish, Hutto, Mixson and Jerry
Melvin all leaving the House of
Representatives from West Florida,
we are going to need all the
experience we can get in Tallahas-
see for the next few years. Lamoni-
ca's past experience as a Legislative
aide for several years, should help
lessen the blow from the clout we are
losing, more so than the election of
Leonard Hall. Both are good men,
but Lamonica gets our nod because
of his experience in Tallahassee.

County Budget Set


The Gulf County Commis-
sion will hold their annual
public hearing prior to adopt-
ing a financial plan for fiscal
..1979 next Thursday evening at
S7:00-,p.m., in-the Courthouse.
The new budget, finalized
this week, comes to $2,142,-
124.65, only a quarter of which
will be paid for by local tax
payers in ad valorem taxes.
The remaining three-quarters
comes from such sources as
state and federal revenue
sharing, gasoline taxes, race
track funds, CETA funds,
fees and licenses and etc.
According to financial offi-
cer Jerry Gates, the budget
will require no increase in
village levy, with the official
county millage levy now set at
6.444 with an additional .2 mill
for St. Joseph Fire Control
District and .11 for Tupelo
Fire Control District.
Although the millage levy
for the coming year will
produce the same amount of
money from ad valorem taxes
as last year, other sources of
revenue are producing slight-
ly more money than last year.
Of the $2 million-plus bud-
get, $685,516.44 will be financ-
ed with local tax revenues.
The hearing scheduled for
next Thursday is for the
purpose of allowing the public
to enter their protests or
requests before the budget is
finalized. After the hearing,
the Commission can close out
their budget work and declare
the new budget finished and
complete.
The entire budget outline
can be found on page six of
this week's issue of The Star.

A Layman's View


Bible N
EPEHSIANS 2:4-7
KEY WORD: God's Great
Love
(Verse 4) "But God, being
rich in mercy, because of His
great love with which He loved
us, (Verse 5) even when we
were dead in our transgres-
sions, made us alive together
with Christ (by grace you
have been saved), (Verse 6)
and raised us up with Him,
and seated us with Him in the
heavenly places, in Christ
Jesus, (Verse 7) in order that
in the ages to come He might
show the surpassing riches of
His grace in kindness toward
us in Christ Jesus."
God's word, the Bible,
speaks a great deal about
love. All too often in today
world it is not "manly" to
speak of or show love. Then,
quite often, when we do use
the word love it is to describe
something we "like" to do or
see. But when God uses the
work it means a deep devo-
tion. And here in Verses four
and five that deep devotion is
turned toward the sinner, the
one not born again. While we
were yet sinners Christ died
for us.
Now when we accept Jesus
as Saviour and Lord we are
made alive in Christ and

otes
raised with Him to be seated
with Him in Heaven. And that
is RIGHT NOW, immediately
upon our accepting Jesus,
God's son, as our Saviour that
God .accepts us, through
Christ Jesus (Verse 6 and 7),
and seats us in Heaven.
Verse seven says that this is
done because God desires to
show the world His "surpas-
sing (preeminently excellent)
riches of His grace in kind-
ness" from the moment of our
salvation on forever ("that in
the ages to come").

ETAOIN SHRDLU-

By: WesleyR.Ramsey

MUHAMMAD ALI and Leon Spinks are
scheduled to go at it again on Friday night of
next week. September 15 is scheduled as the
re-match against "the greatest and the latest"
as the fight is being billed, Ali has not said much
about this fight, abandoning his habit of the past,
but he still has a week to get into his regular
form.
In the meantime, Spinks has had another
brush with the law in his seventh automobile
accident since his last fight with Ali. If the same
thing has happened to Spinks as happens to the
rest of us when we dent a fender or crush a
"bug", Spinks will need his entire earnings just
to pay his automobile liability insurance
premiums.
New Orleans has had a field day for the past
month grouching about the announced intention
of blacking out the fight on TV for a radius of 200
miles from the Crescent City. That means most
of Louisiana and a goodly portion of Alabama
will have go to New Orleans and fight their way
into the Super Dome if they plan to see the fight.
New Orleans residents are up in arms because'
the fight is already sold out and still the black-out
is on.
Even Pensacola will be blacked out if the 200
mile ruling sticks.
I read the other day where Spinks will be
making $3.5 million on the bout while Ali will
take the lesser purse of only $3.2 million, plus
risiduals.
That's a pretty good night's work.
If someone would pay me $3.5 million, or
even $3.2 million, I would crawl into the ring with
both Ali and Spinks at the same time. Not that
I'm that money hungry, I'm not. I just think I
could come out of the ring in good enough shape
to recover in a week or two then spend the rest of
my life living off my winnings.
It shouldn't take too much out of me to take
just one punch from either one. I imagine just
one belt to the jaw would finish my night of
fighting with that pair.


IF A PERSON wants to watch a football
game for the next three months, he shouldn't
have too much problem finding one to watch.
Everyone starts playing football this week end.
We'll have football on Friday nights, Saturday
afternoons, Sunday afternoons, Monday nights
and I read where there will even be a few games
played on Thursday nights this year.
That leaves Tuesday and Wednesday open to
do whatever you have to get done between
football games.
If a fellow has the "football fever", he should
be able to have it cured between now and
Thanksgiving day.

THE LATEST FAD seems to be to have a
plastic surgeon make ones face over like a'.
famous rock star of the past. I read in the paper /,
the other day where a group of people had been
to the man with the knife to prepare themselves
as look-alikes for a former famous star for a
concert to be staged in Atlanta.
I believe if I were going to go to all the.
trouble and expense of having my face changed,1
I would have it made over to look like someone
handsome, like Clark Gable, Tyrone Power or
Chill Wills. Changing my appearance to look like
Alice Cooper, Mick Jaegger, or some of the
others whose names have conveniently and
purposely escaped my memory, would leave me
cold.
I'll go back to my original plan of having Ali
or Leon make over my face if I get that hard up
for a little cash.

HEY! DID YOU see where the Nicarauguan
rebels went when tfiey were granted their
transportation out of the country?
They went to Panama.
You remember Panama.
That's that "free" nation under the "demo-
cratic" leadership of General Omar Torrijos,
who is such a nice American-thinking guy that
we gave him the Panama Canal.
General Omar is going to harbor the rebels,
probably until they can get another job rebelling.
at a rebellion somewhere.
Doesn't that make you feel a little better
about giving him the Canal and paying him a
bonus in American cash dollars to take it?
With the condition of the dollar these days, I
look any day for General Omar to come back to
the United States for a re-negotiation of that part
of the treaty and ask for something else, in lieu of
dollars ... like maybe, Guantanamo. 14


The poor who hate
tI he rich generally

ty. Mrs. Elliott said she had
already received. commit-


ments of $2,000 each from the
County and the City of Wewa-
hitchka. She said the $6,000.in
local money would match
their grant request.
Mrs. Elliott was kept wait-
ing until the Commission can
have the final study of 'ts
proposed b budget for the.com-
ing fiscal .year next Monday

ORDINANCE CHANGE'
The Ordinance change was
the proposal made at the last
meeting in August to change
the water, sewer and garbage
rates in the City to make them
more in line with the expenses
involved in the operation of
these services. The water rate
was increased from 90c per
thousand gallons to $1.00. The
minimum rate was reduced


from $3.60 to $3.00, with the
maximum water usage under
the minimum bill reduced by
1,000 gallons. Sewer charges
will still be made at the old
rate of 60 percent of the
metered water usage.

Local Jaycees

Change Name
The Port St. Joe Jaycees
announced this week that in
the future they will be known
as the St. Joseph Bay Jaycees.
The name change came
about due to shifting of dis-
tricts in the state-wide Jaycee
organization. Glenn Kent,
President, explained, "Our
area runs from the west side
of Tyndall Field to Apalachi-
cola. Since we will be sponsor-
ing projects throughout our
area, we felt the new name
better designated our organi-
zation."

only kind known in Europe

mendous future.
Squad chief Jim Gregg com-
mented, "As a member, of the
squad for four years and di-
rector for the past 15 months,
I'feeltthat this is the most'
dedicated group I have ever
worked with. The enthusiasm
shown by each arid every one
of the members is heart
warming to say the least."

increase for business users.
The new rates go into effect.
on October 1 of this year.
BID APPROVED
City Engineer, Bob Gehrig
of Smith and Gillespie, told the
Board that upon his examina-
tion of seven bids received two
weeks ago for increasing and
improving the water treat-
ment plant, is was shown that
W.E.D. Construction Com-
pany's low bid of $1,028,800
appeared\to be the lowest and
best bid and his firm was
recommending tentative
award of the contract to
W.E.D., pending approval of.
Farmers' Home Administra-
tion, the lending agency in the
project.
Gehrig pointed out that the
complete water system im-
provement project now stands
at $1,650,000 in cost and the
City has made arrangements
to borrow only $1.4 million,
from FHA. He said FHA
officials have tentatively
agreed to lend more money on
the project to the City, if the
City makes application.
The other phase of the
project 'is the construction of
the new water tower on Long
Avenue and Gautier Lane and
,he improved water main
system. This project was paid
for with cash on hand by the
City from other funls, which
must be repaid from the loan.
The Commission .agreed to
approach FHA for the extra
$250,000 needed to pay for the
entire project.
BROCK BACK
With the resignation of City
Clerk Mike Wright two weeks
ago, the Commission has since
been faced with the desire of
Wright to report to his new job
in Alabama. Since this would
put the City without the ser-
vices of a City Auditor and
Clerk, the Commission, has
approached former Clerk
Charles Brock with the idea of
coming back to fill the position
on an interim basis, until the
Commission can secure the
services of another Auditor
and Clerk.
Brock has agreed to fill the
position .temporarily and has,
already -reported for duty.
This will allow the Commis-
sion to take all the time
needed to be sure they find the
right man for the job.

CONGRESS

The United States Congress deals with' national
and international affairs.
Only Lewis "Ike" Williams has a record of suc-
cessful negotiations with Soviet Government officials.
Only Lewis "Ike" Williams was trusted to speak
for the United States in effectively dealing with Cuban,
Nicaraguan, Spanish, French and Colombian officials.
His fluency in Spanish, French and Russian, coupled
with expert knowledge of political affairs within these
countries make him outstanding in foreign affairs.
SHis recent appearance with David Hartman .on
"Good Morning, America", as an expert on African*
Soviet involvement elicited favorable response nation--
wide. On the same subject, "Ike" has been guest,
speaker in Washington before congressional luncheon'
groups thereby making powerful conservative friends
in our nation's capital.
His degree in Political Science from Univ. of West
Fla. ('68) and his experiences have made him a conser-
vative Democrat in favor of S.J. Resolution 53; which
provides for no federal spending that would exceed
Federal revenues for any fiscal year.
."Ike's" military background underscores his
determination to make this country number one again
in this world. This includes the retention of all of N.W.
Fla.'s military bases for a strong America as well as a
strong N.W. Florida.
His dedication to freedom and-hatred of commun-
ism is unquestioned.
You would be proud to have Lewis "Ike" Williams:
as your conservative Congressman in Washington!

At the meeting of the St.
Joseph Historical Society held
Saturday afternoon, Septem-
ber 2, in the Corinne Gibson
Library, Mrs. R. H. Brinson,
chairman of the old cemetery
committee, reported that
many things had been accom-
plished since January. The
grounds have been cleaned,
weeded, and fertilized and 10
loads of rotted bark spread
over the entire area. Shrub-
bery and trees have been,
replaced as needed and many
new plants, shrubs, and trees
purchased and placed within
the grounds fomosa azaleas,
dwarf azaleas, boxwood,
dwarf gardenia, Australian
date palms, the latter being
placed around the circle bed
and twoothers on either side
of the entrance gate.
Six more Australian palms
have been ordered and these
too will be placed within the
grounds when they are deli-
vered. The pump-house has
been stained and shingled, the
gazebo stained, and two short
brick walks added, one from
the pump-house to the circular
walk, and the other behind the
gazebo. (These bricks were
retrieved from the bay by
Wayne Childers and are be-
lieved to have come from old

buildings in the old St. Joseph
area.)
Another great need has been
for replacement of directional
signs pointing the way to the
old' cemetery. Mrs. Brinson
also reported that seven of
these signs had been made
and placed at strategic points
within the city. Another. sign
has been built under the
supervision of Dorton Hadden,
superintendent of cemeteries
and parks, and placed within
the grounds, asking the coop-
eration of visitors in protect-
ing the cemetery. The wording
for this sign was provided by
Wayne Childers.
Mrs. Ralph Swatts, Sr.,
president, expressed appre-
ciation to the committee, Mrs.
Brinson, Mrs. Charles Brown
and Wayne Childers for the
splendid work they have done
and for the long hours they
have devoted to this project.
She also expressed apprecia-
tion for the cooperation and
generosity of Mr. Coldewey
and the other city commis-
sioners, with special thanks to
Mr. Hadden and .the city
workers.
Jesse Stone reported that
work should begin on the



t7 ^


proposed Constitution 'Hall in
the near future, and the group
made plans for reprinting
Dorothy Dodd's pamphlet re-
lating to the constitution con-
vention to place in the new
building when it is ready.


Appointed to this committee
were-Mrs. W.H. Howell, Jr.,
chairman, Mrs. R. H. Brinson,

Following the meeting some
of the members went to see

According to City Patrol-
man, Phil McLeod, the young
girl suffered only minor injur-
ies from the mishap.
Officer McLeod said the
young White girl was the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Lonnie White of 1301 McClel-

McLeod said his investiga-
tion showed the young girl
crossed McClellan and ran out
into the path of the auto,
driven by Crystal Mapes
Hughey, who was driving on
16th St. Officer McLeod said
Ms. Mapes had practically
come to a stop before the
impact which lessened the in-
juries to the little girl.
There were no charges filed

election. His colleagues tell why:

House than any other member."
-Rep. Ralph Haben, D Palmetto

"Rep. Hutto has provided great leadership and I am sure
this will continue if he is sent to Washington."
.-Rep. Lee Moffit, D Tampa

"I am sure Rep. Hutto must have gotten more legislation
passed than anyone during the years we served together."
-Rep. Mary E. Hawkins, R Naples


He lands for what is right.

Jaycees Raise Funds


for Lewis Telethon
11 I Port St. Joe Jaycees took pledges to the Jerry Lewis
Telethon and put on their annual "Arrive Alive" emphasis at
Mexico Beach over the Labor Day week end, to emphasize
safe driving over the holidays. Here the Jaycees and their
wives are manning their station which dispensed coffee and
refreshments during the long holiday hours. Jaycee
President Glenn Kent said the club raised over $700.00 for the
Jerry Lewis Telethon. The station was opened at 6:00 p.m.,
; Friday and manned continuously until 6:00 p.m., Monday.

I saw in the Aug. 31 issue of The Star where' Mr.
Moore published Judge Taunton's income tax return. I
suppose there was something in this return that Mr.
Moore wanted the citizens of Gulf Co. to see. .
Mr. Moore did not publish his own income tax
return, so I assume there must be something in Mr.
Moore's tax return that he does not want the citizens of
Gulf Co. to see.

SMK Ranches Ordered to



Restore Natural Drainage


M-K Ranches, a 30,000 acre
Gulf County agricultural oper-
ation that constructed' artifi-
cial drainage structures and
dikes across tributaries.of the,
lower Apalachicola River Ba-
sin, has agreed to implement a
restoration program to re-es-
tablish the natural flow -of
water to several thousand
acres of wetlands in the area.
Terry Cole, Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Regu-
lation attorney who prepared
a consent order signed by the '
.firm and DER outlining the
'restoration program, said to-.
day M-K Ranches will have 60
\\ days to complete the restora-
8 tion measures. "The restora-
tion, when completed, will
allow circulation of the Apa-
lachicola River and its tribu-
tares to return to a significant
area .of valuable wetlands,",
according to Cole.
Cole said the environmen-
S tally damaging drainage al-
terations to be reversed by the
restoration were made by the
ranch's previous management
without required state per-
mits, and "posed a serious
threat to the water quality of
the Apalachicola River and
the marshes and hardwood
.s**amps in the area."

the Southeast corner of Gulf

Steve Gordon, President of
the Florida Chapter of the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,
has announced the appoint-
ment of Mrs. Teresa Johnson
as chairman of the annual


Rural

Deaths .-

Increase
Traffic deaths in rural areas
continue to increase said the
Florida Highway Patrol re-
cently.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director announced that
traffic deaths on rural roads
are up 12 percent over the
same period in 1977.
Records indicate that urban
areas are only up one percent
over last year.
Statewide totals for the first
six and one-half months of this
year show 1,176 people killed
as compared to 1,050 for the
same period last year.
In addition, records indicate
that 87,153 persons have been
injured in traffic crashes so
far in 1978.
It is feared by officials that
one major factor in the rise of
rural fatal crashes can be
contributed to a gradual in-
crease in average speed.
Colonel Beach concluded by
saying, "Arrests for speeding
have increased significantly'
but the increase ih traffic in
Florida makes it hard for our
troopers \to be. everywhere.
Without the cooperation of all
drivers, law enforcement of-
ficers cannot hope to 'stop the
slaughter on our highways."


"Breath of Life" Door-To-
Door campaign in Port St.
Joe. The Door-to-Door will
raise funds to support re-
search and care programs in
Port St. Joe and around
Florida for children who suf-
fer from lung-damaging dis-
eases.
September is Cystic Fibro-
..sis Month, and, the Door-to-
Door drive is scheduled to be
held during the week of Sept.
,23-30.
In Florida, there are five
clinics that are approved and
supported by the Cystic-Fibro-
sis Foundation. They are loca-
ted 'in Gainesville, Jackson-
ville, Miami, Orlando and
Pensacola.
Approximately one out of
every 1600 babies are born
with cystic fibrosis, which is
still incurable. CF is inherited
when both parents carry the
gene which causes it. It is
believed that ten million
Americans are symptomless
carriers of this gene. Current
research funded by the Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation is seek-
ing a practical test.to identify


these carriers as well as find a
cure for CF and develop better
methods of treatment.

person for the fall door to door ,
march in Port St. Joe. *for
The campaign will take
place in late October and the Airman
proceeds will be used to
optinue the work of St. iJude
Hospital. Founded by enter-.
famier Danny Thomas sixteen
years ago, St. Jude is devoted
to painstaking medical re-
gparch and care of children
stricken with catastrophic dis-
eases, including leukemia,
hodgkin's disease and other
forms of cancer.
..t. Jude's is non-sectarian,
interracial and completely
free of charge to patients.
Once a patient is admitted, the
hospital provides total medi-
cal care.
/ St. Jude's is the largest
childhood cancer research
center in the world.- The work AIRIv
done there benefits not only
the hospital's patients, but
children everywhere because
fj results of this research are
shared with physicians world-
wide. Everyone can now share
in the optimism of a growing
"cure rate" because of the
Work at St. Jude Children's
Research Hospital.
-St. Jude's receives assist-
ance from federal grants, but
over 60 percent of its support
comes from volunteer contri-
Sbutions. In October, the resi-
dents of this community will
have an opportunity to help
children live throughout the
world by giving what they can
to St. Jude's when a volunteer Pd. f
comes to their doors.

The Cool-Sealing of a mobile
home roof is a necessity to
protect your home from the
leaks and rot caused by rain,
wind and heat. A properly
applied coat of Cool-Seal will
also serve to insulate your
home and reduce the high cost
of air-conditioning. So, don't
wait until the brown spots
appear on your ceiling, Cool-
Seal NOW.
