$275,000 Returned to Customers

Phone Company

Making Refunds

Users of the utilities throughout the
nation have grown accustomed to
seeing stories printed in the paper
about the firms asking for rate hikes to
meet their operating expenses. It is an
unusual twist of events when a story is
printed about a utility refunding money
.to its subscribers during these days of
high inflation and continuously rising
This. week, the St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Company has
taken that unusual turn of events and is
announcing that it will return some
$275,000 to subscribers throughout its
This doesn't mean subscribers 'of
the telephone company will be receiv-
ing a check in the mail, according to
Tom McDermott, auditor for the firm,
with its base of operations here in Port
St. Joe. "Subscribers will receive a
credit on their telephone bill in their
March billing", McDermott explained.

The refund to be made by the phone
company isn't one of those "just a few
cents" refunds. Most home subscribers
will receive at least a full month of
phone.service free. Some will receive
credit even on the second month of
phone service.
McDermott told The Star, those
customers who were a part of the
service as of December <31, 1978, will
receive the refunds. "A one party
resident customer in most of the
counties served by the company will
receive a credit of $17.03 plus the
applicable taxes. Subscribers in Alliga-
tor Point, Tyndall Air Force Base,
and Wakulla Springs, will receive
varying amounts", McDermott said.
Customers on two party lines will
receive refunds of $13.43 and those on
four party lines will receive a credit of
Business customers in most of the
exchanges of the utility, including all of

Gulf County, will receive credits of
$41.66. Businesses in Alligator Point
will get $38.42; Tyndall Air Force Base,
$43.64 and Wakulla Springs, $38.42.
Other business phones such as two
*and four party lines, rotary,. trunk
2-way, trunk in and trunk out, will
receive various amounts in their
McDermott said the firm was able
to make the refund because "The
company's earnings have. been better
than expected primarily because of
internal control measures, improved
business conditions in Florida and the
number of toll calls far exceeded that
which was forecast."
The telephone company, like other
phone companies in the state, is
allowed by the Florida Public Service
Commission to make a profit of 7.24
percent. This past year, the firm made
more than that, resulting in the refund
to its customers.

Tries for


Rate Cut
Billy Joe Rish advised
The Star this Week. he
* believes all the information
has been gathered and
turned in to rating officials
in order that residents of
Oak Grove may soon re-
'ceeie a reductib" in their
fire insurance rates.
Rish said the City and
County had both partici-
pated in furnishing fire
protection and water ser-
vice in a cooperative effort
to get the insurance rates
down for homes in the area.
The procedure for obtain-
ing a rate reduction re-
quires reviewing by the
Insurance Services Office
of all information which
has been submitted to
The office now has every-
thing in the Jacksonville
office for evaluation. Rish
said he is in hopes the rate
reduction will become ef-
fective within the next few

Sheriff Murphy further described the victim
as being five feet seven inches to five feet nine
inches in height, with a heavy build. The
victim walked with a limp, due to a deformed
right foot, which was possibly a club foot. The
victim had at one time a broken left arm
which had healed and also a broken rib. In the
left side of the lower jaw a temporary filling
was found, and a serious cavity in the right
lower jaw.

Clothing found at the scene, which had
been worn by the victim, were a pair of blue
or green socks, a pair of Levi blue jeans, size

Beach Wants PSJ to Take Sewer

The City Commission will
meet with the Mexico Beach
Commission next week to
discuss the Beach community
piping its sewage collection to
Port St. Joe's Wastewater
Treatment Plant for disposal.
The Mexico Beach commun-
ity has just completed a 201
study in preparation to apply-
ing for a federal grant to
install a sewage collection
system. When the study was
first begun in 1976, plans were
to treat the sewage with a
spray irrigation system.
Since that time, the commun-
ity has decided, upon the
advice of their engineer, J. B.
Converse,, that their best
solution to a sewage disposal
problem would be to pipe it to

Port St. Joe.
A pipeline from Mexico
Beach to Port St. Joe, carry-
ing sewage would also provide
a conduit for sewage from the
Gulf County beach communi-
ties to tie in and send their
sewage to the treatment plant,
The Beaches communities,,
at present, have no plans
underway to create a sewage
district and put in a collection
The meeting with the City
next Thursday afternoon will
discuss rate of flow, allow-
ances, charges, etc.
The City Commission pas-
sed an ordinance Tuesday
night which alters a present

The new city statute, would
allow a homeowner to use
galvanized pipe for transport-
ing water from his lot line to
the edge, of his dwelling or
building. In the past, the
ordinance has required copper
pipe for this installation.
The new ordinance still.
requires that copper pipe be
used under the floor and inside
the house.
The new ordinance complies
with the Southern Standard
Building Code, the pattern for
the City's building code.
The City and all its opera-
tions have just undergone a
safety inspection by the Mor-
rison Assurance Company.

The inspection was made to
insure the safety of city
employees and patrons of city
The Morrison firm recom-
mended several safety ap-
pliances be installed, such as
stair hand rails to the Centen-
nial Building upstairs, fire
extinguishers, exit lights, etc.
The firm also recommended
that the City set up a safety
education program with city
employees to stress safety and
working habits.
The Commission approved,
Tuesday night, the formation
of a safety committee to
inspect for and promote safe
conditions throughout the city,
and its property.

In other items of business on
the short agenda Tuesday
night, the Commission:
-Agreed to advertise for a
variance of the zoning code for
Randall McClain, who wishes
to construct a storage building
on the rear of his property on
Long Avenue.
-Agreed to call for bids to
replace the roofs of the
Centennial Building and the
Stac House. Both roofs are

ing efforts.

We're Not His

Kind of Editor

Dear Mr. Ramsey:
.:... As a native of Gulf County,
..residing ip Pensacola, I had
the opportunity to see and
read a copy of the Star dated
February 15, 1979.
Several items of this edition
prompted me to reflect on
several points.
First, I though what a fine
county and wonderful, down-
to-earth people live in Gulf
County, The area is one of a
unique nature in that progress
has not overwhelmed it, yet it
survives. I thought of the
restrictive nature set by selec-
tive industry headquartered in
Port St. Joe that has maintain-
ed a very tight rein on area
growth. Your most valuable .
resource, youth, tend to move
to other areas because of this
restrictive nature.
You and I both remember

well when Reid Avenue was
full ol businesses of every
description. Because of fac-
tors beyond the control of the
county or because of directed
events those businesses closed
and the economy suffered.
Your publication,is read by
the citizens, serves the basic
needs of the community, but in
many incidents you, your
paper and its message seems
to slant a story or an event in a
manner that reflects your own
bias and prejudices. Your
editorial section, ETAOIN
SHRDLU, has been prejudi-
cial which is your right and
privilege. However, fact in
reporting or even editorializ-
ing should be remembered as
the mark of a true journalist.
Second, a suggestion is in
order. Print Lincoln's 10 Guid-
lines each week until the

tions were ordered against
both men by Judge Smith.
James Earl Gathers was to
be tried on a charge of escape
as The Star was getting to
press Wednesday, but the
verdict was not known before
press time.

Three other cases were
continued to the next term of
court. These included:
Robert D. Gainous, burg-
lary of a dwelling.
Mark Devon Floyd, aggra-
vated assault on a police
officer and a charge of resist-
ing an officer with violence.



: ft I WONDER if Ray Washington has ever set
-foot in Gulf County.
Who is Ray Washington, you ask?
Ray Washington is evidently a young man.
:He writes for the Gainesville Sun and pens such
wofds, in describing Gulf County as: "It is a
county of slash pines and poverty, a low land
where swamps go back deep into the lives of the
people, where cypress trees grow sturdy, where,
in.ragged shanties, the children grow sometimes
sturdy despite, it all, and sometimes not so
sturdy." He also writes, in this same Gainesville
Sun: "Gulf County is one of the poorest counties
in Florida and there, are poor folks everywhere
-you turn. In Gulf County, you can fit all the
:-:rich men in the closet of your doublewide trailer
-"and the fairly well off you can fit in the
- :bathroom. Only, if you live in Gulf County, you
- -probably will not be able to afford a doublewide

f: Wesley R. Ramsey

That seems to be a mouthful of hogwash
coming from a so-called writer in the community
which houses the university of higher learning,
which only last year described Gulf County as
having one of the highest per capital incomes in
the state of Florida. Either Washington and his
Gainesville Sun never read the research of the
university which lives in his town, or the
university never sends its findings to the Sun.
I THINK Washington has never been to Gulf
County. His description sounds more like what
he would like to believe the.county is, rather than
describing a first-hand look.
Washington was writing an article about our
County Judge, David Taunton, and his preoccu-
pation with his campaign to aid the poor. This is
Washington's prerogative, if he wants to write
about the Judge. It's the Judge's prerogative to
tell Washington his beliefs and goals, in order to
get them in the article. But it isn't Washington's

right to misrepresent the people or the life one
finds in Gulf County.

DO YOU SUPPOSE they have eradicated all
the poor in Alachua County? Surely, if one
counted noses, divided by the runny ones, he
would find just as many poor noses as rich noses,
per capital, in Alachua County as in Gulf County.
There is no denying that we have poor people
here in Gulf County. There are poor people
everywhere and they need helping everywhere.
We have never tried to sweep our poor under a
rug, or deny that they are here. The Bible says
the poor will be with us always and we try to live
by the Bible in Gulf County. We can't do away
with them.
MR. WASHINGTON talks about our ragged
shanties, giving the indication that one sees
more ragged shanties than he sees other
dwellings. As a matter of fact, he refers to the log
cabin in which our judge lives, with "only one
small heater in the house".
Again, Mr. Washington should take a tour of
Gulf County before saying it is a county of
shanties. Some of the owners of those so-called
"shanties" may take exception to Washington's
assessment of their property even more so
than they do at the assessment made by Sammy
Patrick for tax purposes.

I'm even suspecting that Washington didn't
even see the Judge's "log cabin", by the manner
he referred to it, intimating that it was not much
more than a hovel or shanty in the woods. Even
Mr. Washington should realize, however, that a
person making $29,000 a year isn't even poor in
Alachua County and can afford to live in just
about what he wishes and heat with any kind of
heater he wants even one fired with OPEC ,
fuel oil if he feels so disposed.

that our millionaires "would fit in the closet of a
doublewide trailer", went over our heads. That
wasn't a very timely reference f3r Gulf County.
Gulf probably has the least number of mobile
homes (that's what those who own them, call
them) of any county at or near our size in Flor-
ida. Most people here in Gulf County spring for
permanent homes. As a matter of fact, there is
no place in Port St. Joe which is zoned for
allowing "mobile homes" to be set up in the City.
The only ones here are a couple of temporary
offices, which have only temporary permits to

We live in a county, Mr. Washington, which
has less than 500 recipients of food stamps, the
Jaycees have a hard time finding enough poor
children to help at Christmas time, the people
live, mostly, though not entirely, in substantial,
well-kept homes and make a living wage,
evidently. At least it is harder to find a person to
do an odd job here in Gulf County than it is to find
a conservative writing on the Gainesville Sun in

We get along, and must have something
going our way, otherwise we wouldn't -be

Matthew 14:14 & 20:34;

forth his hand, and touched
him, and saith unto him, 'I will
be thou clean.' "
There are many definitions
of the word compassion. Some
of which are pity, merciful,
kindness, and love. But in the
scripture verses above we find
the definition is "to'have the
'bowels yearning"!

the Bible, we see Jesus was

compassion it was always

Vivian Hardy

Gets Hole-In-1
Vivian Hardy, president of
the Ladies Golf Association,
shot a hole in one on.Tuesday,
February 13. Her playing
partner was Louise Coldewey.
This feat was accomplished

the upcoming Lenten season,
says experts from the Bureau.
of Marketing and Extension
Services, Florida Department
of Natural Resources.
The three seafood varieties
will be featured this spring in
promotional literature, distri-
buted by the Bureau.
Croaker, a weight-watcher's
delight because of its low fat
content, has not received the
attention it deserves from the
general public. Nutritious and
mild-tasting, croaker can be
found in Atlantic and Gulf
Containing only 80 calories
in a 3.5 ounce raw edible
portion, croaker is delicious
smoked, fried or in stews.
The more familiar rock
shrimp cook faster than any
variety of shrimp. Texture is
like that of lobster, and rock
shrimp are often tastier when
purchased frozen.
Popular preparation me-
thods include simmering,
broiling, frying or baking.
The unique-tasting mullet
are marketed whole, filleted
or pan-dressed. A vegetarian
fish, mullet have a mild,
nut-like flavor and are excel-
lent baked, broiled, fried,
poached or smoked.

these delicacies, the Bureau

I_ Plants Doing Poorly? Check Soil

"We cannot be just if we
are not kindhearted."
- Vauvenargues

Sometimes plants grow'
poorly for no apparent reason.
A healthy plant can be set in
what seems to be a good soil,
can receive plenty of sunlight
and water and still look sickly
and perform poorly. If you
have areas around your home'
where plants react this way,
check for a soil problem,
especially the wrong soil
reaction or pH.
Now, your next question is -
what is pH? Well, pH is
nothing more than a chemist's
shorthand for' describing the
amount of hydrogen in the
soil. The capital letter "H" is
the chemical symbol for hy-
drogen and pH is a figure
describing the concentration
of hydrogen in the soil, which
in turn determines the acidity
,of the soil.
A simple numerical scale
is used to express soil pH. The
scale goes from 0.0 to 14.0. The
midpoint, pH 7.0, is the value
for pure water which is called
neutral pure water is neither
acid nor alkaline. Figures
below 7 on the scale indicate

acid or 'sour' soils and the
lower the number the more
acid the soil. Each whole
number drop in pH denotes ten
times the acidity. For exam-
ple, a soil having a pH of 5 is
ten times more acid than one
having a pH at 6. Numbers
above 7 indicate alkaline or
'sweet' soil. Again, the higher
the number the more alkaline
the soil.
Two good examples of acid
and alkaline liquids are
orange juice and sea water.
Orange juice has a pH of about
3.7 (very acid) while sea
water has a pH of 7.9 (slightly
Soil pH is very important
because it influences several
soil properties which directly
affect growth of plants. Soil
pH effects soil bacteria, nu-
trient leaching and availabi-
lity, and-toxic elements.
Most plants have a range of
tolerance to pH. Plant nu-
trients are generally most
available in the pH range o.f
5.5 to 6.5. This is also a good
range for soil bacteria. And,
most important, this is the

best range for most plants.
Certain plants thrive best on
acid or alkaline soils having
pH values out of the usual
'best' range. For example;
azalea, bougainvillea, croton,
dogwood, gardenia, hibiscus,
holly and magnolia grow best
in acid soils having a pH below
5.5. These plants grow poorly
and many have yellow leaves
in areas where soils are
alkaline. In contrast, cabbage
palms, yucca, sea grape and
many other-plants grow quite
well on alkaline soils.
A pH determination will tell
whether your soil is within a
range that produces good
growth but it is not an
indication of fertility. If the pH
is not optimum, it can be
raised or lowered using chem-
icals available to all home-
If excess alkalinity exists
near the house, the only
solution is to remove the soil.
and replace with a more
suitable material. If the soil is
too alkaline because of liming
or a minimum of natural
alkalinity, several acid-form-

ing material can be used to
reduce the soil pH.
Super-fine dusting or wet-
table sulfur can be used to
acidify a soil. About 10 pounds
of sulfur applied over a 1000
square foot area will decrease
a sandy soil one unit in pH -
like from 7.0 to 6.0. Sulfur
must be washed into the soil
immediately after application
or it will severely burn grass or
shallow plant roots. Even with
the upmost care some burn
may occur after an applica-
tion of sulfur. The best ap-
proach is to apply an acid
forming fertilizer such as
ammonium sulfate. This ma-
terial applied at the rate of
five pounds per 1000 square
feet of area will acidify the soil
without burning the grass.
Normally, lime or dolomite
is used to increase the pH or
sweeten the soil. Lime con-
tains calcium carbonate while
dolomite contains both cal-
cium and magnesium carbon-
ate. Another material, hy-
drated lime, can be used for
quick change in soil pH but it
can severely burn plants and

Make Crime Resistance

Courtesy Part of Habit

"Courtesy" is a term that
we sometimes might be
tempted to define as "a
forgotten form of behavior."
To do so would be to exagger-
ate, of course, but we'd almost
all agree that phrases like

"excuse me," "thank you,"
and "let me hold the door for
you" are heard less frequently
in daily conversation than
we'd like to hear them.
A little courtesy can go a
long way. If it became more
commonplace, our communi-
ties would undoubtedly be
nicer places in which to 'live.
Adding a crime resistance
dimension to courtesy would
help to make our communities
safer places in which to live,
as well. And this time of the
year, when we're making our
New Year's resolution, might
be an especially good time to
resolve to make Crime Resis-
tance Courtesy a part of our
daily routine.
What is Crime Resistance
Courtesy? It's offering to pick
up, newspapers and other
items that accumulate in front
of neighbors' doors while
they're away so that their
residences don't become tar-
gets for burglars. It's alerting'
neighbors to the fact that

bicycles, often attractive to
thieves, have been left unse-
cured in front of their residen-
ces. When we're out in public, "
it's politely asking persons if
they're aware that they've left
their car doors unlocked. And
if we live in neighborhoods
where older persons are some-
times victimized on the street,
it's offering to escort elderly
relatives or acquaintances to
and from the store or bank.

Very simply, Crime Resis-
tance Courtesy is helping
others, in a tactful and friend-
ly way, to become less vulner-
able to crime. Hopefully, our
good example will influence
others to practice Crime Re-
sistance Courtesy, too. If they
did if. Crime Resistance
Courtesy became contagious -
we'd eliminate many opportu-
nities for crime and make our
neighborhoods and communi-
ties much more pleasant
places to live this year and in
the years to come.

is seldom recommended for
home use.
To increase the soil pH one-
unit, say from five to six,
apply about 50 pounds of
dolomite or lime over a 1000
square foot area. Lime mater-
ials are slow to react so six
months may be required be-
fore the soil pH rises.
To sum up- the pH problem
follow these steps. First, find
out the pH value of the soil
where planting is planned
(labs or kits are available for
pH determination). Second,
learn the 'pH preference of
ornamentals to, be planted.
Last,, if necessary, raise or
lower the pH of the soil to best
suit the plant. Or if this isn't
possible, select a plant which
will thrive at the natural pH of
the soil.

Have you chosen, 'or are
you currently considering, an
individual to be named ex-
ecutor of your estate? Has a
friend or relative recently
asked you to serve as ex-
ecutor? Worse yet, has the
subject never come up?
The executor, or executrix
in the case of a woman, is
the individual or trust in-
stitution named in a will and
appointed by the court 'to
settle your estate when you
die. There may be only one,
or more than one, to share
the responsibilities which are
numerous, time-consuming
and often .complex.
An executor's duties ty-
pically include:
collecting the money
that's due your estate,
seeing that life in-
surance companies are
n paying off valid debts
you owed,
preparing and filing all
estate, income and inheritance..
arranging for your fam-
ily's immediate living ex-
9 distributing portions of
your estate to all the people
you named in the will, and
hiring a lawyer to handle
the legal aspects of estate set-

never been an easy, honorary,

of the new demands and risks

lation, it is more important
than ever to think twice be-
fore naming a friend or re-
lative to "save money."
For instance, the recent
tax law on "carryover basis"
for assets in an estate requires
that the executor establish
four separate values for each
asset and furnish to the
Treasury and heirs the re-
quired information on the
carryover tax basis for each.
Obviously, your executor
should have the business and
financial experience needed, to
,wrap up your estate quickly
and efficiently without drain-
ing assets from your family.
In addition, he must be will-
ing to serve and live close
enough to handle all of the
day-to-day duties. Some states
require the executor to be a
When serving as executor,
bank trust departments are

talents of a corporate staff

In Jeopardy
Unless Americans find new
sources of energy and more
efficient ways to use their
present energy supplies, their
high standard of living will
suffer a drastic decline. That's
the conclusion of a free,
16-page report entitled, "En-
ergy A Growing 'National.
Problem," published by the
National Wildlife Federation.
With illustrations, graphs,
and text, the report examines
what energy resources are
available in the U.S. .today,
how Americans can conserve
these resources, and what new
energy alternatives may. be
developed in the future.
The NWF report emphasi-h
zes the need for conservation
and suggests specific ways in
which the "four big energy
users" industry, transporta-
tion. homes and offices, and
utilities, can become energy
however, the report contin-
ues, "aside from conserva-
tion, we need longrange solu-
tions." The report focuses on
six "promising alternatives,"
listing their advantages and
disadvantages. Solar heating,
solar electricity, wind power,
biomass, fusion, and geo-
thermal power are all low-pol-
luting energy sources which
have a significant and grow-
ing priority in the federal
The report concludes with a
glossary of energy terms,
from "barrel" to "watt."

Super Pull of the South" and
that's exactly what it will be.

Additional seating has been

Security has been guaranteed
by the Gadsden County She-
riff's Department and the
Florida Highway Patrol, and
parking will be handled by
the Quincy Police Auxiliary.

The show will still feature
monstrous tractors, four
wheel drive trucks and mini-
tractors all vying for $30,000 in
prize money. All three days
will be equally thrilling with
machines such as jet powered
tractors attempting to pull a

These beautifully painted
and chromed tractors resem-
ble drag racing rails; some
have two, even three automo-
bile engines, others have tank

propriate classification.
Another classification, su-

per stock, is composed of
turbo charged, alcohol, me-
thane and nitro burning diesel
farm tractors which bellow
black smoke from one end of
the track to the other as they
labor with the sled.
Four wheel drive trucks will

evening and the mini-tractors,

Can Kill
"Highway Hypnosis" can be
a killer of unsuspecting motor-
ists said the Florida Highway
Patrol recently.
"Long straight highways
such as interstates and turn-
pikes tend to lull drivers into a
false sense of security," said
Highway, Patrol Director
Colonel Eldrige Beach.
Statistics prove that such
roadways are safer overall,
primarily due to the lack of
intersections; however, some
crashes occur without appa-
rent cause.
Cars and trucks sometimes
run off the road or strike
concrete supports for over-
head bridges.
People have been killed or
injured by running into the
rear of another vehicle which
is stopped on the shoulder.
SHighway Patrol cars are
regularly run into when they
are stopped on the side of the
road, usually with their flash-
ing lights on.
The Patrol offers these tips
to drivers: keep eyes moving,
roll down the window, stop at a
rest stop to stretch and to get
the blood circulating. Even
singing may keep you alert.
Beach concluded by saying,
"Use our superhighways to
take advantage of their safety
but at the same time, make an
effort to keep yourself alert so
you can arrive at your desti-
nation safely."

all top fuels.
Whatever kind you use, pile
on the wood. Make the initial
fire a sizeable one to reduce
the wood to hot coals; a tiny,
neat little fire just won't do it.
You have to think big. After
you have plenty of hot coals
below the grate, you can cut
down on the size of the fire but
still keep it going by adding
two or three small sticks of
wood at a time.
