Aliens Spotted by

SSheriffs Deputies-

A motor home, containing 25 Mexican
citizens who were in the country illegally, was
stopped by Gulf County Sheriff's Deputies
near the overpass on Highway 98 last Friday
afternoon, according to Sheriff Ken Murphy.
According to a Sheriff's Department
spokesman, the motor home became disabled
at the .overpass. It appeared to have lost
power and coduldnft make the' grade up the
side of the overpass incline. Deputy, Raymond
Watson stopped to see if he could be of any
assistance and called for a tow truck to aid
the stricken motor home. While talking to the
driver of the motor home, Frank. Herrera of
San Antonio, Texas, Watson noticed, the
vehicle Was sitting low in the rear and
became suspicious. Watson tried to get into
the motofhome by .saying he was thinking of
buying one and he wanted to see what it look
like. Herrera then told Watson he would
rather not show it off because it was such a
mess inside.
Watson then. decided something was
definitely wrong and called for assistance on
bhis radio, holding Herrera until help could
* .

When aid arrived, Watson found .;out
Herrera had been telling him a partial truth
S-the motor home was a mess inside. It was
made that way because he had 25 Mexicans
crowded into the rear of the home and was
allegedly in the process of smuggling them to
the orange groves of south Florida to find
work. The Mexicans had been huddled in the
motor home for about two days of travel.
The Mexicans, 22 men and three women
had started their journey in Herrera's rented
. "motor home at San Antonio and got this far
before running into, trouble.
Herrera was charged locally with failure
to have vehicle registration papers in his
possession and failure to have the vehicle
rental papers on his person. He has pince been
turned over to federal authorities and
appeared before a Federal Magistrate in
Pensacola Monday.
The Mexican nationals, who were in the
country without a passport or permission,
were still lodged in the Gulf County Jail
yesterday, but will be sent back to Mexico in a
few days.

' Wewa Store Burglary Victim

Bill's Dollar Store, was the
latest victim in 'a rash of
robberies and burglaries in.
Wewahitchka over the past
few months.

The store, located in a small
shopping center, just south of
the main business district of
Wewahitchka, was entered by

thieves on Wednesday night of
last week. ,
According to Gulf County
Sheriff's Department chief
investigator, Jim Buchanan,
the thieves took about $96.00 in
change and about $200 in
clothing from the store. Bu-
chanan said the department
has questioned several people

about the burglary and has
several suspects under inves-
tigation. No arrests had been
made as of yesterday.
Buchanan said the burglary
was discovered by Mrs. Mary
Louise Smith, store manager,
when she opened for business
on Thursday morning.

Recall Petition Is

Verified by Parker

Answers Are Due Monday

Supervisor of Elections,
Mrs: Dessie Lee Parker, com-
pleted her survey of a recall
petition filed three weeks ago
against four Port St. Joe City
Commissioners and ruled the
petition had the necessary 10
percent of qualified city elec-
tors as signees. Mrs. Parker's
office said that in view of the
number of names on the
petition, it was a legal recall
request and should be served
on the Commissioners involv-
Monday of this week, City
Clerk Charles Brock served
Mayor Frank Pate and Com-
missioners Wesley R. Ram-
sey, John Robert Smith and
James B. Roberts' with the
recall petition papers, giving
them five days to present an
answer to the several charges
contained in the petition. The
answer must, be in Brock's
office by Monday morning of
next week.
After Mrs. Parker's exam-
ination of the petition, which
was filed containing 343
names, it was found that
several signees were not reg-
istered to vote in the City and
that several had signed. the

petition more than one time.
When the names were all
checked, it was'found that
there were 311 eligible sign-
ers. Mrs.. Parker also ruled
that there are 2,676 registered
voters, requiring 268 names on
the petition for it to be valid;
After the affected Commis-
sioners present their answer
to the charges on Monday, the
petitioners must then take the
charges, and the answers and
place them on a second
petition and get 15 percent of
the registered voters to sign it
before a recall election can be
asked for,
The nine charges made -on
the recall petition, state the
Commission members:
1. Have failed to take the
necessary action to restrain
the wanton dissemination of
the patients' hospital records;
2. Have failed to correct the
rapid and relentless deterior-

3. Have failed to answer the
questions asked at the August

Wild Ride Ends In Crash

Billy Lester Kelley turned
his automobile off Garrison
Avenue onto 10th Street in the
early morning hours last
Thursday morning and left a
path of destruction all the way
to Woodward Avenue, accord-
ing to Port St. Joe Police.
Kelley was charged by City
Police with having no drivers'
license and leaving the scene
of an accident, after he
allegedly caused over $4,o00
worth of damages to property
and parked automobiles. Po-
lice patrolmen James Graves

The,officers give this report
of the incident which ended
with Kelley's car being snug-
gled up to a pine tree in the
yard of Mr. and Mrs. Francis
Kirkland at the corner of 10th
Street and Woodward Avenue.
, Kelley's vehicle made the
left turn into 10th Street and
left the shoulder of the road on
the north side. The car travel-
led 279 feet, striking a parked
car owned by Ivey Cooper.
The vehicle continued west
on 10th, swerving back and
forth across the road. Nearing
Woodward Avenue, the car
jumped a ditch on the south
side of the street, sideswiped a
utility pole and struck a fence
around the property of Kirk-

land. It then sideswiped an-
other utility pole and plowed
back into the fence, tearing it
down and entering the Kirk-
land yard.
The vehicle hit Kirkland's
truck, parked in the drive
inside the fence and knocked it
into a group of appliances,
which Kirkland was in the
process of repairing. The car
then struck the Kirkland resi-
dence and caromed off the
house and struck a pine tree,
where the wild ride came to a
Alford Clark, age 18, a
passenger in the car, was
ejected somewhere along the
wild ride, but was not hurt.

Bible Notes

Romans 12:17-21 KJV
Key Word: God's Expecta-
gtions Of Us,


All nations must
depend on Free
theirs or someone
else's. I

(V-17) "Recompence (pay
back) to no man evil for evil.
Provide things honest in the
sight of all men."
(V-18) "If it be possible, as
much as lieth in you, live
peaceably with all men."
(V-19) "Dearly beloved,
avenge not yourselves, but
rather give place unto wrath
for it is written, Vengeance is
mine; I will repay, saith the
(V-20) "Therefore if thine
enemy hunger, feed him; if he
thirst, give him drink; for inso
doing thou shalt heap coals of
fire on his head."
"Be not overcome of evil,
but overcome evil with good."
It is very hard for a
Christian,. when an injustice
has been done to him, not to
strike back. The first thought
after we have been hurt is to

destroy that one who did it.
But wait, what does God say?
He says the Christian owes a
debt to all men not to repay
evil for evil done. God asserts
vengeance is His on our
behalf, IF we follow His plan
(if indeed vengeance is need-
God's plan says if we feed
and give drink to. our enemy
(that one.who has hurt us) we
cause him so much uncomfort
it is as though burning coals
have been poured on him. Evil
(Satan) is out to destroy good,
but Praise God the Good of the
Christian is stronger and will
overcome Satan and his evil
everytime. It is difficult to
accomplish this, but the
Christian in Jesus' Name can
and must do as 'God expects
His sons and daughters to do.

The next problem is parking on Reid
Avenue. This doesn't mean there is not enough
parking space; the problem mostly swirls
around the parking meters.
The third problem is the unkempt appear-
ance of the city.
Let's look at them, one by one and see if we
can't come up with a new set of resolutions
among ourselves, as individual citizens, which
will help all three problems.

THE HOSPITAL problem is one of personal-
ities and other such personal matters, as I see it.
The hospital is operated by a set of rules and
regulations set up by the state and national
hospital associations, the state and national
health organizations and hospitalization insur-
ance carriers. A hospital must abide by these
rules and regulations, along with all its staff and
medical personnel, or it will not maintain its
accreditation. Loss of accreditation could easily
mean loss of Medicaid and Medicare status, as
well as loss of sanctions by some insurance
The rules and regulations are designed to
protect the patient and see that he gets adequate
medical care at a minimum risk from the
hospital and its physicians. They're not designed
to penalize anyone except those who would not
abide by the rules.
The hospital Board of Directors is charged
with seeing that these rules are adherred to and
they intend to do just that so long as they are

allowed to remain in their present position.
Beyond this, they have no power.
.There are those who would argue this simple
statement, but it happens to be true.

PARKING ON REID Avenue is a topic of
conversation. . . especially the parking meters
which line the street. The meters take in a few
dollars each year: enough to pay the salary of
the parking attendant who polices the overtime
violations and keeps the street available for
those who wish to come to town to shop. There
are those who would, .like to see the meters
The parking meters were put up in the first
place to control parking. People were coming
downtown and parking on Reid Avenue all day
long, making it inconvenient for those who
needed to find a parking place so they could do
their shopping. The meters were put in to pay for
the cost of controlling these parking violations,
and they were numerous.
If the meters are now removed, the city will
be stuck with an expenditure of about $6,000.a
year to police parking downtown. At the present
time, the city can ill afford tq lose this small
amount of revenue and pay for the controls out of
tax dollars. If everyone who parks downtown
would consider their neighbors and their parking
needs, there would be no need for meters or
control officers.
Some say the meters are driving, local
shoppers to Panama City where they can park
free. I don't know what kind of car they drive,
but one can park all day at the meters in
downtown Port St. Joe for 40 cents. They surely
can't drive to Panama City for that amount of

A Winter


I. II.When winter first came to the Panhandle
.last week, it came in with a rush, stunning the
people and the plant growth. As a rule,
someone thinks to put the water hoses to
.running while the freeze creeps in, creating
art in ice and an unusual sight for this part of
the nation. The suddenness of winter's first
assault caused people to forget to put out their
hoses or turn on their water.

With the second freeze coming along, the
first of this week, Tony Beard and Mitch
Fortner of Marvin Avenue were prepared.
They turned on the hose, hung it in a tree
and left it there all night long. The result was
this cascade of icicles, which caught the early
morning sun last Thursday, showing a scene
'y1of harsh beauty--harsh for the tree and
beauty for the person looking at it.

On tables made -by Mr.
Brown nearly fifty years ago
from ash and cedar from the
Apalachicola forest were
large silver "Whistling Walk
Warmers". These warmers
were used in the period when
the kitchens were build separ-
ately from the houses, and a
walk was in between. The
servant boy had to whistle

that he was not picking in the

room was covered with a red
Christmas cloth and centered
with'a silver fillagree bowl

embroidered napkins to
match, were made for this
special occasion by Mrs.
Brown's daughter. This table
was attended by Mrs. Nobie

Items of interest of the west
Florida coast were a secre-
tary and sewing table that
tame to Apalachicola on the
steamboat Rebecca Evering-
ham in 1883. The table held old
crystal ice buckets, a tray of
the early 1800's marked Astor
House, New York, and a
dinner gong with Latin in-

Ludas, Johnnes + S and the
symbols under each name.
A spool bed made by Valen-

linen twine used by fishermen
in this area to mend their nets,
covered the bed.
A Cannon-ball bed made by'
a German craftsman for the
first lighthouse keeper at Cape
San Blas and later used at the
Yellow Bluff Light by the
Luptons was on display.

An oil painting of' the
steamer Crescent City plying
between Apalachicola and
Carrabelle, the only link be-
tween the Apalachicola North-
ern and the Georgia, Florida,
and Alabama railroads, was
an item of interest to those old
enough to remember her. The
Crescent City, a side wheeler,
and later made into a stern
wheeler was brought from
New Orleans to Apalachicola
by Mrs. Brown's grandfather
Captain James Pickett in the
late 1890's for J.P. Williams,
an owner of the G.F.&A.
Railroad and an uncle of three
generations of St. Joseph Bay
Chapter members Mrs. Roy
Gibson, Sr., Mrs. Bill Brown,

ings of the old lighthouses, fish
houses, boats, wharves and
beach scenes were in every
room. Each room contained
antiques and a Christmas
motif which were of interest to,
the guests.

,! Big Buck

Club Still

:; *- For deer hunters who
haven't scored yet, it's not too
late to make this year's Big
IBuck Club.
The Big Buck Club was
organized several years ago
by the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission to recognize
: deer hunters who bag trophy
bucks in Florida, said Major
'Kenneth L. Stivers, director of
the Commission's Office of
Informational Services.
."Hunters have until Janu-
ary 7 in most parts of the state
to qualify for Big Buck
honors," Stivers said. "How-
ever, the general hunting
season in the Commission's
Northwest Region runs an
. additional two weeks, ending
; January 21.
"Sportsmen also have the
opportunity to hunt trophy
'bucks in the Northwest Region
a: january 27 through February
S 11 in special primitive wea-
S ons season," Stivers said.
To qualify for club status,
the buck must weigh a mini-
mum of 130 pounds field
dressed and that weight must
be certified by a wildlife
officer, check station opera-
tor, game technician, or no-
tary public.
"The club recognizes bucks
laken anywhere in the state by
either resident or nonresident
Shunters who comply with state
g e game regulations," he said.
A Big Buck Club member
i.eceives a trophy certificate,
a shoulder patch for his
hunting jacket and club mem-
S bership card.
For additional information
and application forms, deer

Robert Engle, a marine
biologist with the Coastal
Plains organization told the
Rotary Club last Thursday
that an experiment, currently
underway in Apalachicola to
raise oysters under controlled
conditions is working out well
and could mean a profitable
industry for this part of
Engle said, one of the
S problems with the oyster
industry is that the oysters get
"'"poor" and lose much of their
tastiness during the summer
months. "This is the main
reason for taking them off the
market during these months",
S: he said.
Under the experiment he is'
conducting, the young oysters
would be placed in salt water
tanks and fed corn meal
' :during the summer months,
producing the same fat, firm,
tasty'oysters which are com-
mon in these parts during the
' :cooler months. Engle says the
main reason oysters lose their,
S' - firmness and taste during the
