The Port St. Joe Port Authority will
be pulling out all the stops this week end
in selling their plan of a huge, port and
seafood processing facility for con-
struction here, according to George
Tapper, chairman of the Authority.
Invitations have been sent out and
acceptance received for officials all
the way' from- Washington, D.C. to
Gainesville to be here this week end in
what will be the largest concentration
of public officials ever to be gathered in
Port St. Joe.
The visiting dignitaries will include
both Florida Senators in Washington,
D.C., Senator Richard Stone and
Senator Lawton Chiles; Representative
Earl Hutto; directors and executives
with the Coastal Plains Region, Far-
mers Home Administration, including
state director Michael Hightower;
Corps of Engineers officials, Lieuten-
ant Governor.Wayne Mixson, Cabinet
members Jim Smith, George Firestone
anl Gerald Tewis; State Senator Pat
Thomas and Senate President Phil
Lewis; Representative Leonard Hall
and House :Speaker Hyatt Brown, as
well as nearly 100 other .state, federal
.and local officials.
"Wefre getting them down here for


a purpose, and that purpose is to show.
they what we plan to do here", Tapper
said. Plans' are to give the visitors an
overview of what the Port Authority
has in mind for the waterfront here in
Port St. Joe and then take them on a
water tour of the site to point out just
' where the port will be and where the
seafood and poultry processing plants
and support industry will be located.
All of the facilities willbe geared
for overseas shipment of area agricul-
ture and 'seafood products.
Tapper said the visitors and any
local citizens who wish to attend, will be,
given an overview of the entire project,
along with display of a model of the.
waterfront area beginning at 10:00
a.m., in the Commons Area of Port St.
Joe High School.
Following the briefing, the visiting
officials will be taken on a water tour of
the proposed site for the processing
plants and the port facilities. The
seafood and poultry processing plants
and docking space for fishing boats is in
the Chicken House Branch vicinity,
while the port facilities will be located
west of Highway 98 just this side of the
Highland View, bridge.
Following the tour, the visitors will
be fed a seafood dinner at the Commons


Area.
Following the dinner, several of the
officials, including both Florida Sena-
tors will give short responses. The
public is invited to attend the speaking
program and hear the reaction of state
and federal officials to the plan.
The Port Authority hopes to
'develop a major port which will have a
large economic impact on the area.
Major products to be handled at the
port include poultry, seafood and grain.
The port will also provide farmers and
fishermen in Northwest Florida addi-
tional market outlets. A majority of the
products shipped at the port will be for
foreign use.
In order to determine the need for a
port in the Port St. Joe area, the Coastal
Plains Coordinating Council, a federal
agency, made a grant of $35,000 to the
Apalachee Regional Planning Council
to conduct a feasibility study.
The local Port Authority was
created back in 1955 by the State Legis-
lature. The legislation was sponsored.
by Tapper, who was a State Senator at
the time. Other members of the Port
Authority are: Edwin D. Ramsey, Dr.
Joseph P. Hendrix, W. E. Whaley and
B. Roy Gibson, Jr.

Nathan Peters, Jr., who filed. the petition has no
telephone and couldn't be contacted by The Star, but he was
reported by other area daily newspapers as saying he had
filed the petition to help resolve the hospital dispute that has
divided the community. He said a recent decision by the
hospital board to revoke the hospital privileges of Dr. Anila
Poonai enabled him to obtain the required number of
signatures earlier than expected.
Mayor Frank Pate said the Commission, which also acts
as the Board of Directors of the hospital, stated the.-
Commission had only acted according to the hospital by-laws&:
in matters pertaining to the situation. "We are required to
follow the by-laws in our actions" Pate said.
Problems at the hospital came to a head in July, when
the Board of Directors asked Dr. Poonai to move out of
offices he occupied in the hospital itself, after he had been
there for two years. The situation continued to deteriorate
until a first recall petition, containing names of over 10
percent of the registered voters was presented to the City
Clerk in December. This most recent petition is the second
step in required procedure by Florida law.
Mrs. Parker has 30 days to inspect the names on the
newest petition and verify the names against the voter..
registration list.


County to Review Priorities


Region Champs
a The Port St. Joe Sharks already are signaling that.they
are number one as they show off their Region 2-AA winners'
trophy, taken after a victory over Havana Tuesday night.
last week end, the Sharks beat Blountstown and
Chattahoochee to win the District 3 crown, taking their first
two steps to participation in the state tournament. This week


end they take their final step against undefeated Vernon, in
Vernon on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Shown in the photo

of this issue. -Star photo


The County Commission re-
alized Tuesday night that its
list of paving priorities is not.
complete and that there are
some disagreements about the
order of importance given to
several projects throughout
the county.
Chairman Billy Branch ask-
ed that the Board consider a
special meeting within the
next two weeks to come to a
meeting of the minds of
priorities and add several
projects to the list before the
county goes into any bonding
progt'am to build or re-surface
roads in the county.
Branch pointed out specifi-
cally that several streets in
Highland View, formerly in
the road paving plan, had been
mistakenly omitted from their
new plan.
ROAD 22
The extension of Road 22,
which must cross the Apala-
chicola River at the end of the
present Road 22, which cros-


ses the Dead Lakes Dam, was
revived Tuesday night, with
Commissioners Leo Kennedy
and James Gortman wanting
to see some action started
again toward getting the state
to complete plans made sev-
eral years ago to extend the
short-cut through the National
Forest in Liberty County


toward Wakulla.
The big bottleneck of build-
ing an expensive bridge
across the Apalachicola River
will continue to be the main
hurdle toward completion of
the route, but the Commission
seems determined to make
another try at getting it done.
To help accomplish this


goal, the Commission agreed
to invite Commissioners from
Bay, Liberty and Wakulla
counties to a meeting here. in
the near future to begin, a
united effort to get the road
built.

Jury Finds Two Guilty


Two men were found guilty
of the charges placed against
them and one entered a plea of
guilty last Wednesday on the
last day of the spring term of
court.
Entering a guilty plea was
Charles D. Skipper, who had
been charged with grand
theft, auto by the state. He
pled guilty to a charge of
unauthorized use of a motor
vehicle which was accepted by


the court.
Judge Larry G. Smith or-
dered a pre-sentence investi-
gation be made.
TWO FOUND GUILTY
A jury ruled that James

Earl Gathers was guilty of
escape, after 30 minutes of
deliberation following his trial
Wednesday morning.
Judge Smith ordered him
held in custody while a
pre-sentence investigation is


made prior to passing sen-
tence.
A second jury brought in a
verdict of guilty on a charge of
aggravated assault against
Leroy Gathers, Jr., after
nearly an hour of deliberation.
The court ordered Gathers
to remain in custody while a
pre-sentence investigation is
made in his case.
The two cases were the only
jury trials to be, held during
the spring term.

ed in the city during the past

We Have Company


In Our Belief


We don't think we-have received
,such public reaction on many pieces
;we have written over the years as we
did over the piece last week
concerning the writer for the
Gainesville Sun and how he termed
bur county as one of poverty and
sub-standard living facilities.
We're encouraged.
- What we hear the most of is
"from those who.are disgruntled with
.the way things are progressing. We
don't know if they, are truely
concerned or just disgruntled. At
any rate they are vocal and we have
at least our share of those who are
never satisfied or in agreement with
.'the direction things are going.
Now we learn there is a large
-segment of our population which
thinks Port St. Joe is a fine place to
live. Since the Gainesville writer
enlarged his scope of indictment to
qhe entire county, we must enlarge
on those statements of our new-
found cheering section to include all
of Gulf County in that description.
All of Gulf County is a fine place to


Live and rear a family.
It was also encouraging to hear
these same sentiments from some of
those who don't necessarily agree
with us much of the time.
It's just a pity that all of our
citizens can't come to realize we
have a good thing going here. We
have a good county, with fine people,
adequate services and probably
more churches per capital than most
counties can boast.
As we said before, there are
those who would tear down just to
bring about change, with no thought
given to what the future holds if
immediate changes are made.
Sometimes they can be drastic.
We think Gulf County is one of
the best places in the United States
to call home. Our entire focus is to
protect the good things we have and
work for more and better things for
our people. Anybody who has any
other purpose in mind doesn't de-
serve to live here,;where we have so
much going for us.


People in Gulf County have been
asking the question, "Why are our
schools losing pupils?" -
An article in the papers the
other day pointed out why and
answered the question. The baby
boom in the United States has gone
bust. The birth rate has dropped in
our nation until, according to the
article, there are now 5.5 million
fewer children under age 17 in
America than there was 10 years
ago.
Here in Gulf County, the birth
rate has dropped to the point where
our school system has about 10
percent less' pupils than they had 10
years ago. This, in spite of the fact
that more and more people are
moving into the county.
The move toward fewer births

"You cannot strengthen the
weak by weakening the

You cannot help small men
by tearing down big men.
You cannot lift the wage
earner by pulling down the

You cannot keep out of

You cannot further the
brotherhood of man by incit-
ing class hatreds.
You cannot establish secur-

Abraham Lincoln"


motor vehicle inspections,
then the government should
take steps to remove .those
inconveniences "instead of
seeking to destroy the worth-
while program."
According to Dr. Thomas A.
Seals, professor of transporta-
tion and safety in the College
of Education at Florida State
University, "the program is
indeed worthwhile and should
be maintained." He says the
steps which state government
may have to take to correct
some of the problems of
compulsory motor vehicle in-
spection are well worth the
effort and expense.
Seals call "superconserva-
tive" the Florida Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles' estimate .that 1.6
percent of fatal traffic colli-
sons during 1977 in Florida
were caused by vehicle de-
fects.
Seals says- the 1.6 percent


figure "represents only those
reported collisions in which an
obviouw vehicular defect was
noted by a police officer
during a formal investigation.
"A much larger percentage
of collisions is caused by
defects which are not brought
to the attention of an investi-
gating officer," he points out.
Seals believes the mere
existence of required motor
vehicle inspection "has a
positive educational influence
on drivers by making them
more aware of proper vehicle
maintenance all year long."
Because of these and other
factors, Seals estimates that
the required motor vehicle
inspections reduce collisions
in the state by more than
seven percent.
He backs up his opinion with
figures from studies made by
the National Highway Traffic
Safety (NHTSA), which, he
says, "indicate that vehicle


defects are a direct cause of
from five to twelve percent of
Straffic collisions:'"
An Indiana study showed
that compared to environmen-
tal and human factors, vehicle
defects were definite causa-
tive factors in six percent of
1,000 collisions, and "such
defects were a contributing
factor in 27 percent of the
collisions."
Seals thinks there are eco-
nomic reasons, also, for keep-
ing the compulsory inspection
program. Using the NHTSA's
cost figures for collisions
involving fatalities, injuries
and-or property damage, and
applying his estimate of a
seven percent reduction in
collisions, he tabulates con-
siderable savings for Flor-
ida's taxpayers.
Considering the costs of the
program, the potential reduc-
tion of accidents and the
annual inspection fees of $3


per passenger vehicle, Seals
reasons that Floridians are
saving themselves a potential
$69.5 million in damages as a
result of the inspections.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

B



DID YOU miss the eclipse of the sun Monday
morning? If you did, you won't see it again until
the year 2017.
In this part of the world, if you had the
proper equipment, you were able to see the
eclipse Monday morning from 9:27 to 11:57. I
hardly even noticed it. I didn't join the other
many curious people who looked at the sun
through a piece of film, a smoked glass or a
pin-hole. They tell me that many of these people
: burned their eyes, putting them in an irreparable
condition.
I should have fixed me an eclipse viewing
apparatus and taken a look at the sun as it
peeked out from behind the moon, which was
between it and earth for these few hours, but I'
didn't. I don't know if I can stick around until it
does it again, 38 years from now.


y: Wesley R. Ramsey


THEY SAY eclipses of the sun and the moon
,will make people do funny things. These tales
remind me of the old were-wolf spook tales and
the witches, goblins, spooks and the like.
Whether it was the pending eclipse or not,
something reacted on a Montreal, Canada couple
last week end and they robbed a bank in a
Montreal shopping center via helicopter.
The story in the papers tell us that the couple
commandeered the helicopter and made it land
in the shopping center parking lot where they
proceeded to rob the bank and then copter to the
nearest subway, where they made their
get-away.
The odd happenings in the heavens may
make me slip my senses and try to rob a bank
someday, but I don't think the heavens will ever


get out of kilter enough to make me go for a ride
in a helicopter.

THE MOON and the coming eclipse also set
a Miami fireman on fire.
The fireman was told by his superiors to get
a physical, which included an electrocardio-
gram. This test meant that he had to have
several spots on his hairy chest shaved for the
electrodes to be attached.
The fireman said, "No sir, you ain't shaving
my chest!"
At the threat of being dismissed for failure to
take the mandated physical examination the
fireman opted for the dismissal threat rather
than displease his current girlfriend who had
told him, "Your hairy chest turns me on".
Of course, the fireman's chest hair would
grow back in a while, but maybe by that time, his
girlfriend would grow tired of waiting to be
turned on ... or the effects of the eclipse on the
actions of both may be over and all the thrill
gone. He took the short term benefits.

I SEE where the State of Wisconsin is
following Florida's lead and cutting its budget
surplus in order to give their people a tax cut.
I hope both Florida and Wisconsin don't
over-do their rebates.

I can see it now: with the next tax bill we can

next year, we may see about the same reduction.
Maybe even for a third year. But if this rebate
Business is carried too far in order to pay off a
political promise, about the fourth year, when it,
comes time to start a new term of office, we cao|
already predict that there is a good possibility'
that all of a sudden, the surplus will be gone and
we'll need a little money in the public till. Then,
the taxes will go back up.
I don't think the state or anyone else should
tax more money than is needed to operate the
government, and keep a little cash on hand to
meet unexpected emergencies, but that cushion
should be there. It can get down-right
uncomfortable at times, if you don't have a little
tucked back.
I just hope we don't un-tuck too much at one
time.

THE CIVIL SERVANTS of Britain have
gone on strike. I see where 300,000 of them have
walked off the job, asking for more money.
It's nice, even necessary at times, to have
more money. I can't see how the people of Great
Britain, being as proud of their country as they
have always been, can add to the woes of their
bankrupt nation by causing them even more
difficulties by striking. It just doesn't seem to me
to be the patriotic thing to do.
A strike is a necessary tool at times, but it
can also be a very destructive tool if abused.
If we live in a society where the people have
come to depend on the government to take care
of all our needs from the cradle to the grave, I
suppose we have to expect these same people to'
get around to expecting the government to no.v
undertake the task of giving us what we want;
well as what we need.

try to secure permission to
lease the now-abandoned St.
Regis Paper Company camp
near the same site, for use by
the Club.
WANTS TO RIDE ON BEACH
Herman Jones of St. Joe
Beach asked the Commission
to reconsider its ban on
driving on the beaches be-
tween Highland View and the
eastern county line.
Jones asked that driving on
the beach be allowed during
the winter months, so that
those who liked to travel the
beach in search of driftwood
could do so.
The Board agreed to allow
riding on the beach during the
winter months of December
through March, provided it
met no opposition after a
public hearing on the matter.
CENSUS CHANGES
The U.S. Census Depart-
ment notified the County
recently that changes had
been made in the method of
making the enumeration
every decade in order to give a
more accurate account.
Gulf County has felt it has
not been receiving an accur-
ate count, and pointed out
several errors after the last
census.
The census is very import-
ant to Gulf and other counties,
since federal revenue sharing
money is based partially on
population.
Another area affected by the
census, is a new voting
precinct for the Howard Creek
community. Citizens in this
area have asked for their own
precinct but the Census Bu-
reau will not allow creation of
any new voting precincts
within two years of the census.
This is because the census-
taking plans are built around
voting precincts.
COMMITTEE NAMED
At the, request of the Gover-
nor of Florida, the County now
has an Emergency Energy


Panel, who will function
should:energy supples be cut. '
off or sharply curtailed tq, the ,,
county.
The Board approved the
appointment of John Miller,A
Roy Lister, Bill Adcock, K. E. n
Murphy, Ed Bandjough, Hub F
Norris, Frank Pate, Chester
Gant, Troy Jones and Ralph
Walton to the panel.
WANTS HEADQUARTERS b
Evan Williams approached
the County Commission Tues- ]
day night, asking the Board to
secure a piece of property in
the St. Joe Beach area for a
Beach Fire Department head-
quarters.
Williams said the depart-
ment needs a place to put its 1
equipment and use as a
central headquarters. Wil-
liams asked the Commission
to consider purchase of at
least an acre off the highway,
centrally located in the beach-
es area. S
The Board agreed to look s
into the matter. C
OTHER BUSINESS A
In other business matters, $
the Commission:
-Agreed to extend the date P
of Cubie Laird's retirement so C
the county agent's retirement 6
situation could be cleared up.
-Let bids to the Southern
Mill Creek Products to pur-
chase two fogging devices for
the Mosquito Control Depart-
ment at a cost of $1,150 each.
-Accepted a bid of $276.00
each from Motorola to supply
three new pagers for the Port
St. Joe squad of the Volunteer
Ambulance Service.
-Agreed! to issue a permit
to St. 'Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company for un-
derground cable installation,
after the utility had installed
the cable in the beaches area
without a permit. The request
came to the Board because the
cable had already been in-
stalled without a permit.
Securing the permit had been
overlooked in the construction
process.
-Agreed to join with Gaskin
County in passing a resolution
objecting to the regulation of
construction of private ponds
or lakes on private lands by
the state. Permits are now
needed to build the private
water impoundments.
-Agreed to extend the
construction time of -Griffin
Construction Company for six
weeks, in construction of the
Wewahitchka Ambulance Ser-
vice building.
-Agreed to employ De-
Wayne Manuel as building

American dog tick may cause
paralysis in dogs and children
if the tick attaches itself to the
base of the skull or along the
spinal column. After the tick is
removed, however, recovery
is rapid.
Both Cromroy and Koehler
say that ticks should be
removed from pets and hu-
mans as soon as they are seen.
If the tick 'is not promptly
removed, the chance of dis-
ease transmission or a second-

According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department, the
chain letters that have sur-
faced around Gulf County
recently, do not constitute a
violation of the law, they only
serve to aggravate some
people and ignite superstition
in others.
Sheriff Murphy says, ac-
cording to Chapter 849.091 of
Florida Statute, pertaining to
chain letters, to be in violation
of this Statute, the letter has to
solicit fees or dues, or any-
thing of material value and
promise something of mater-

ary infection is increased.
Cromroy and Koehler ad-
vise against two of the more
frequently used methods of
tick removal. One of these. is
touching a tick with a hot
needle.
"Using a hot needle to
remove a tick will make him
throw up into your system,"
Cromroy said. This increases
the chance for disease trans-
mission.
The entomologists also ad-
vise against covering a tick
with nail polish. While ticks
treated this way will die from
suffocation, it takes up to 72
hours for this to occur. And,
says Cromroy, the longer the
tick lives on the host, the
greater the chance of disease
transmission or infection.
Cromroy and Koehler say
that the best method of tick
removal is first to touch the
tick and the surrounding skin
with alcohol. Then grasp the.
tick near the mouthpart with
tweezers and pull evenly until
the tick is disengaged, making
sure that all of the tick is
removed from the skin.

grass and other low vegeta-
tion. They wait there as long
as necessary for an animal' to
pass by, sometimes living up
to two years without food.
When an animal does pass, the
tick grasps on, cementing
itself to the host by secreting a
substance similar to glue.
Like sharks, ticks have
teeth that curve backwards.
When they start feeding, ticks
make a hole in the skin of the
host and the teeth spring
forward. The tick's mouth-
parts pierce the host's skin
and inject into the blood a
substance which prevents it
from. cl6fting. '
Cromroy and Koehler ident-
ify the brown dog tick and the
American dog tick as the two
most troublesome ticks in
Florida. The brown dog tick
rarely bites humans, but is
commonly found on dogs and
sometimes in homes. The
brown dog tick does not
transmit diseases to humans,
but it can transfer diseases to
dogs.
The American dog tick,
however, can carry Rocky
Mountain Spotted Fever and
other diseases .from animals
to humans, the IFAS entomo-
ogists say. They add that the

Strong Winds Are Traffic


Hazard This Time of Year


Wind is an invisible force on
the highways which must be
given special care by the
operators of light vehicles the
Florida Highway Patrol said
recently.
"More lightweight vehicles
and large campers are travel-
ing our highways than ever
before and these vehicles are
likely to have control pro-
blems when strong winds blow
across the roadway," said


Colonel Eldrige Beach, direc-
tor of the Patrol.
According to the Patrol a
dangerous situation could oc-
cur when a small vehicle is
passing or being passed by a
large truck or bus. The mass
of air being pushed by the
larger vehicle can cause the
smaller one to sway danger-
ously.
Peach urged drivers to
watch for underpasses, em-


bankments or heavy woods
where the wind may 'be
blocked for a short distance
and then blow full force
causing you or the approach-
ing driver to suddenly swerve.
He concluded by advising
motorists who may be travel-
ing this time of year to, "Plan
ahead for possible maneuver-
ing in tricky wind situations so
that you may have a safe
trip."

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, MARCH 1. 1979


Miss Miriam Faye Harrison and


Harry Leslie Smith, Jr. Are Wed


Miss Miriam Faye Harrison
and Mr. Harry Leslie Smith,
Jr. were united in holy matri-
mony on February 24 in the
*First United Methodist
Church in Port St. Joe.
The bride is the daughter of.
Mr. and Mrs. James Edward
Harrison of Port St. Joe and
the groom is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Harry Leslie. Smith of
Enterprise, Alabama.
The impressive double ring,
candlelight ceremony was of-
ficiated by the Rev. Johnie W.
McCurdy and directed by Mrs.
Billy Joe Rish.
The sanctuary was resplen-
dant in the light of .128
flickering candles in gleaming
brass candelabra. Pairs of
diagonals, spirals, and trees
formed a symetrical arrange-
ment which 'circled and
framed the platform and
-pointed to the large, lighted
mahogany cross and sterling
silver organ pipes.
The church furniture was
dressed with white satin, gold
embroidered cloths. A single,
very large, fan-shaped ar-
rangement of white and pink
gladioli and white Fiji mums
graced the altar table and
created a lovely focal point
until the minister and the
*bride and. groom took their
:places.
Family pews were marked
with candles decorated with
,pink and white carnations,
fresh greenery, and generous
wide satin bows.
In each of the stained glass
windows, three tapers rose
from beds of greenery.
Mrs. Mark Tomlinson, or-
k'ganist, provided the wedding
music. Her pre-nuptial selec-
tions included "I Love You
"Truly" and "0 Promise Me,"
"requests of the bride, because
,Mrs. Tomlinson had played
Them when her parents were
,married in the same sanctu-
ary almost twenty-five years
Before.
Miss Delane Ingalls of Opal,
SSouth Dakota and Troy, Ala-
bama, sang "O Perfect Love,"
"Wither Thou Goest," and
: "With This Ring."
: The bride entered on the
arm of her father, radiant in a
.traditional slipper satin dress
which was handmade by her
:mother. The empire bodice
with Queen Anne neckline was
overlaid with chantilly lace,
edged with embroidered alen-
con lace, and fastened in back
with 55 satin-covered buttons.
The long fitted sleeves of
chantilly lace ruffled at the
wrists. The A-line, double
flounced skirt of satin was
banded with three wide rows
of chantilly lace and cascaded
-into an elegant cathedral
train. Her veil of bridal
illusion was trimmed with
scalloped chantilly lace and
her cap featured chantilly and
alencon laces and tiny seed
pearls. She carried a cascade
of white roses, baby's breath,
pink carnations, and delicate
fresh green fern.
The matron of honor, Mrs.
Stuart Shoaf, nee Renee Cos-
tin, was lovely in a pink
crepe-backed satin floor-
,:length gown featuring a ruf-
:-fled, string-tied, high neckline
and ruffled long sleeves. She
carried a nosegay of pink
carnations on a background of
burgundy net and ribbons.
The bridesmaids wore bur-
:gundy gowns of crepe-backed
--satin made in the style of the
:matron-of-honor. Bridesmaids
:were Miss Mati Harrison,
-:sister of the bride; Miss Terry
:Brown of Port St. Joe; Mrs.
:Grady Wiggins, III, nee Bar-
bara Fiser, of Panama City
:and Troy, Alabama; Miss
:Katherine Benton of Atlanta,
Georgia, cousin of the groom;
Eand Miss Kim Harruff, of
Montgomery, Alabama. They
carried nosegays of pink car-
nations.
Little Miss Dana Kelli
Swatts, daughter of Mrs. Ted
Cannon and Higdon H. Swatts
?of Port St. Joe served as
,flower girl. Her white satin
fflodr-length dress was remini-
'scetnt of the bride's with an
: empire bodice overlaid with
:;chintilly lace, ruffled lace
:sleeves, and a lace-banded
;'flounce on the skirt. The dress
:;was trimmed with a pinkand
;white ribbon and lace sash
'which trailed down her back,
i'nd the same pink and white
adorned her tiny cap and veil


6f illusion.
Ringbearers, Master Ralph
gilbertt Swatts, III, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Ralph Albert Swatts,
Jr. of Port St. Joe, and Master
David Murff Snider, son of Mr.


and Mrs. Ronald Snider of
Fayetteville, North Carolina,

Angel Barbee, sixth grade
pupilof Mrs. Kenneth Herring
:bf the Port St. Joe Elementary
School, was guest speaker at
the recent luncheon meeting
of the St. Joseph Bay Chapter
Daughters of the American
Revolution held Wednesday,
February 21, at the Garden
Center on Eighth Street. An-
gel was winner of the Ameri-
can History essay contest
conducted by Mrs. Charles
Norton, Chairman of Ameri-
can History, and was present-
pd to the group by Mrs.
Norton. Attending the meeting
with the young student were
her mother, Mrs. Tony Bar-
Pee, and her teacher, Mrs.
Herring.
According to the winning
essay, entitled "Travelers in
the Thirteen Colonies", there
gas yally not much travel in
ose days. The few available
roads were terrible; much of
the time the weather was
rough, and it was dark;
accommodations were much
'less than comfortable and
travelers were never sure that
they would not be attacked by
Indians or by wild animals. At
times they had to cut their
way through the woods, and
marked their way by making
cuts on trees. Travel was by
means of horseback, by boat,
carriage, stagecoach or cov-
ered wagon. Whatever the
mode of travel, it was slow,
extremely difficult, and very
dangerous, and travelers
face many hardships.
The article called attention
to the difference in travel then
and now, and expressed ap-
preciation of the young writer

The student was commend-
ed by the program chairman,
Mrs. Norton, for her research
and excellent essay, and, was
presented with the DAR
American History Award and
certificate.
In the business session, Mrs.
Thomas Owens, Regent, re-
quested that Mrs. Wm. Ho-
well, Jr. read .the SSDAR
President-General's message
for February, in which she
commended American His-
tory committees throughout
the nation for calling attention
of the public to the illustrious
history of our nation, and
reminded members that the
lives we live today will be part
of America's heritage tomor-
rowi, Sl." said, V"We must
continue our efforts in having
the month of February desig-
nated American History
month permanently.
Mrs. Nobie Stone, Chairman
of National Defense, spoke on
"American Heritage, Heart-
break, and Hope". Emphasiz-
ing Christian heritage, she
said, "Godliness will exalt a
nation when nothing else
can", and reminded the group
that the first thing the pilgrim
fathers did upon reaching
American soil was to kneel
down and pray. She said it was
no accident that America was
discovered just before the
terrible religious wars, and no
accident that. the Bible was
published at exactly the right
moment. Both were God's
doing.

The bridesmaid's luncheon
was given by Mrs. Walter
Brown, Mrs. Billy Joe Rish,
Mrs. Ralph Swatts, Jr., Mrs.
Bernard Pridgeon, Jr., and
Mrs. Gene Abrams at the
Harbour House in Panama
City on Friday, the 23rd. The
private dining room was de-
corated in the bride's chosen
colors of burgundy and pink,
and a lovely arrangement of
pink carnations dressed the
head table. The hostesses
presented the bride with three
pieces, of her crystal.

Following therehearsal, the
groom's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Harry Leslie Smith host-
ed the wedding party and out
of town guests at Butler's
Restaurant in Port St. Joe.
The private dining room had
been decorated with pink
candles in crystal holders and
arrangements of pink carna-
tions. Following a delicious
meal, the bride and groom
presented gifts to the mem-
bers of their wedding party.
On the day of the wedding,
Mrs. Silas R. Stone, assisted
by Mrs. Nobie Stone and Mrs.
Jesse Stone, invited the fami-
lies of the bride and groom
and their out-of-town guests to
a delicious come-as-you-are
lunch at her home of 16th
Street. The buffet table was
temptingly arrayed with a
variety of attractive dishes
and featured a large cake in
the bride's burgundy and pink
colors.


Among other things Mrs.
Stone said that religious con-
siderations entered into the
founding of every colony, and
that is heartbreaking .to look
backward and see how appre-
ciation for Christian heritage
has gone down the drain: that
America would never have
accomplished what it has if
our forefathers had had the
same attitudes that are 'so
prevalent today, and that hope
Sfor the future lies in making
our voices heard. This was a
most challenging report.
Mrs. Owens announced that
DAR Schools are saving labels
from Campbell's soups and
Franco-American products,
* and requested members to do
the same. The Executive
Committee recommended
buying a new flag for the
library, and the chapter voted
tb-do-oso. : -.'.
Members were reminded
that the March meeting has
been postponed until the
fourth Wednesday in March
and urged to attend the State
meeting in Panama City,

Girl Scouts and Brownies


Have "Thinking Day"


Port St. Joe Junior Troop
118 hosted a Thinking Day
Celebration for their sister
troop, Brownie 305. Activities
were focused on Girl Scouting
and Japan, and carried out the
annual day of remembrance
of the Juliette Low World
Friendship Fund's organiza-
tion.
Juniors and Brownies began
their program with a gante of
"Bird, Beast or Fish" and
then regrouped for a short
business meeting. The girls
were then invited to visit
different areas at the meeting
site to find out something new
about their Girl Scout friends
of Japan. Mrs. Patti Groos
assisted the girls in the first
area to search for new infor-


mation in books, maps. maga-
zines, and a globe. These were
explored and new ideas writ-
ten on a strip of paper which
would become a link in a
chain.
Nearby other girls, were
being taught to write the
ideograph symbol for Japan.
This group was helped by Mrs.
Barbara Mongold. The cha-
racters of Japanese symbols
which mean Japan or Nipon,
translate "Land of the Rising
Sun." Scouts were told the
Japanese can change the
complete meaning by omitting
only one brush stroke. Their
writing is also in columns, or
rows, and read right to left
and top to bottom.
Another group was enjoying


a simple tea ceremony led by
Mrs. Ruth Lucas. While the
tea brewed, the girls were
reminded of the meaning of
thier World Association Pin
where "Dimes for Daisy"
were used, and why we
celebrate Thinking Day. Eti-
quette and meanings of tea
ceremonies. were also discus-
sed. Fortune cookies prepared
by Troop 118 were served and
enjoyed.
After visiting all areas the


Mr. and Mrs. Earl L.
Burrows, Sr. of Overstreet
announce the engagement and
approaching marriage of their
daughter Mareda, to Andrew
J. Weeks, son of-Mr. and Mrs.
Edward G. Weeks of Highland
View.
Mareda and Andrew are
seniors at Port St. Joe High


CARD OF THANKS
. We would like to express our
thanks to the doctors and
nurses for the fine care given
to our loved one, Charlie A.
Robinson.
The cards, flowers and food
sent by our friends helped
make a difficult time easier to
bear. Again we thank you for
your concern and prayers.
Sincerely,
Roy Robinson and fam-
ily

troopsmet to form their.chain
of golden links into a chain of
world scouting and were re-
minded to keep their link
"strong and bright." Souve-
nirs and information about
Japan was shared by the girls.
Mrs. Patti Groos led the girls
in a song from Japan and
explained it's meaning. She
told about an International
Event she attended while she
was a Girl Scout in Japan and
showed a hat covered with
Girl Scout pins from other
countries. She met the Prin-
cess Chichilow of Japan and
participated in a tea cere-
mony. At another Girl Scout
event, she met the founder of
Girl Scounting, Lady Olave
Baden-Powell.
The meeting closed with
"The Great Spirit" and every-
one left with a stronger feeling
of love, happiness and great
joy for their sister scouts in
Troops 118 and 305.
Leaders of Junior Troop 118
and Brownie Troop 305 would
like to thank the parents and
friends who waited patiently
for their girls until all activi-
ties were completed.

Some people believe that if
the first robin you see in the
spring flies up, you will have
good luck for the rest of the
year. But if it flies down, you
won't!

in front to stay for the
remainder of the game. The
Sharks went to the dressing
rooms at half-time with a 32-28
lead.
Willie Boykins came into the
game in the second half to
replace Chuck Pollock, who
was in foul trouble from his
ferocious defensive play; and
led the slowed-down'Shark
attack with six points.
The Sharks stalled for more
than five minutes in the final
period, eating up the clock,
after running their lead up to
10 points before the third
period was over.
The Sharks were an effec-
tive foul-shooting, team throu-
out the game and converted on
four of six free throws in the
final minute of the game to put
their win on ice.
Riley led the Shark attack
with 14 points while Ricky
Larry added 12 .markers.
Greg Snowden paced the
Tigers with 17 points.

Win District Crown Sat.


. The Chattahoochee Yellow
Jackets were favored by
many to win the district 3-AA
tournament here last week
end, but the Sharks put a stop
to that foolishness Saturday
night, completely demolishing,
the strong Jacket team, 75-52.
Cleveland Riley was the big
gun for the Sharks with his 27
points from all over the court.
Both teams were matching


-each other basket for basket in
the first period until about
two-thirds of the way into the
period, when the sharp outside
shooting of Riley and Rick
Larry pulled the Sharks ahead
by four points, 18-14 at the end
of the first period.
It looked 'as if the Jackets

Riley answered Jones' bas-
kets with two of his own 'and
that was the nearest the
Jackets came to taking the
lead for the entire game. The
Sharks took a narrow 35-32
lead into the half-time rest
period.
It looked like a new Port St.
Joe team the second half, as
they came out running and
shooting. Four quick goals by
the Larry brothers, Tony and
Rick and four points by Chuck
Pollock and suddenly the
Sharks had surged to a 43-32
bulge in the scoring depart-
ment. Willie Boykins and
Riley made two quick steals of
ithe ball from the Jacket ball
handlers and the Sharks were
ahead, 47-32 with 5:31 left in
the period before the Jackets
could put a point on the board
in the second half.
It was all down-hill for the
Sharks from that point on.
The Sharks again went into
a stall in.the last period for the
second night in a row, holding
the ball from the Jackets for
most of the period.
With 30 seconds left in the
game, Rick Taylor hit two free
throws to put the Sharks 21
points ahead. Boo't hen hit
two free throws for the
Jackets to-cut the Shark lead
down to 19 points. But, with
only eight seconds left on the
clock, Ken Parker hit two free'
throws to get the Shark lead


back, then stole the ball on the

Port St. Joe was never
behind and tied only once
momentarily in the third
period as they posted an 89-73'
win over Havana.
For the third game in a row,
it was six-foot Cleveland Ril-
ey, who plays seven feet tall.
who led the Shark attack with
his 25 points. Again it was big,
solid. Chuck Pollock who led
the Shark defense under the
boards, gathering in 16 re-
bounds for the night, a record
for the Shark defense in the
three tournament games thus
far. Pollock's efforts fouled
him out of the game in the
waning minutes of the last
period. '
In the scoring department,
Willie Boykins, the Sharks'
sixth man was hot with 23
points, with Pollock adding 18
and Ricky Larry 12.
The Sharks were tough on
defense Tuesday night, as
they have been for all the
tournament games. In addi-
tion to Pollock's 16 rebounds,
Riley pulled in 10 and Boykins
8.
The Sharks jumped off to a
four point lead in the first
period, and like the two
proceeding games, kept up the
pace, just staying ahead of
their opponent until the last
third of the game, when they
began to pour it on.- The
Gladiators managed to tie the
Sharks 45-45 in the third
period,,after being just behind
by a few points all the way.
When the Gladiators tied the
*score, the Sharks shifted into
overdrive and quickly pulled
out into a commanding lead
for the rest of the game.

Tribute at Legion Banquet


The Driesbach Post of the
American Legion paid special
recognition to Mrs. Susie
Patton, better known as "Ma-
ma Sue", Saturday night,
February .24, at its Negro
History Banquet. They were
recognized as the oldest living
original black settlers in new
Port St. Joe.


"Mama Sue" is an integral
part of the history of the new
Port St. Joe. She was born in
1896 in Wewahitchka. She
moved to Port St. Joe in 1912,
only a few years after St. Joe
began to grow again.
"Mama Sue" remembers
when R. A. Costin built his
first mercantile store on Reid


Avenue. She can give vivid
accounts of the glorious events
given at the old Port Inn hotel.
She recalls names of those
found worthy of being men-
tioned in the history book,
written about Port St. Joe, and
can remember when there'
were no more than five
automobiles in the town.

Maintaining Local Participation In Services


The Board of Directors of

adopted a position in support
of maintaining local participa-
tion in the 'decision-making
process relating to the deliv-
ery of mental health services
in the State of Florida by
calling for the continuation of
the District Mental Health
Boards program.

explained the position of the,
Association: "The District
* Mental Health Boards were
established by the Legislature
as a vehicle to provide local

tal health center directors and
service providers) is viewed
as a major step backward in
that it will place the primary
responsibility for planning
and evaluation of local servi-
ces: with the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Ser-
vices and will remove the
capacity for meaningful local
citizen participation."
"A major issue among
service providers has been a
perception of role confusion,
and duplication of effort be-
tween the HRS District Admi-
nistrators and the Mental
Health Boards. While Chapter
394, Florida Statutes, specifi-
cally prohibits duplication of
District Board activities by
the HRS District Program
Offices, lines of authority and
responsibility between the two
agencies have never been
consistently agreed upon and
adhered to. The position of the
Mental Health Association, in
addition to calling for continu-
ation of the District Mental
Health Boards, calls for the
introduction and passage of
legislation clarifying the spe-
cific tasks of the'Boards and
the relationship between the


Boards and the HRS District
Administrators.",
Gray concluded, "The Men-
tal Health Association in not
willing to relenquish the op-
portunity which the District
Boards provides for meaning-
ful local citizen participation
in determining how the mental
health services delivery sys-
tem can best serve the com-
munity, without first attempt-
ing to find ways to improve the
functioning of the current
system. To abolish the Boards
without such an effort would
be like 'throwing the baby out
with the bathwater.' The

The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met February 13, 1979
in regular session with the
following members present.
William R. Branch, Chair-
man, Douglas C. Birming-
ham, Jimmy 0. Gortman, Leo
Kennedy, and James L. Tank-
ersley. Others present Were
George Y. Core, Clerk; Jerry
T. Gates, Finance Officer;
K.E. Murphy, Sheriff; Wil-
liam J. Rish, Attorney; Lloyd
Whitfield, Road Superinten-
dent; and Tommy Pitts, Ad-
ministrative Assistant.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. Brother R. Larry
Wells, pastor of' the United
Pentecostal Church of High-
land View, opened the meeting
with prayer, followed by the
pledge to the flag.
The minutes of January 2q,
1979, were approved and
adopted.
A delegation from the Ho-
Sward Creek Community ap-
peared before the Board with
Ross Stripling acting as
spokesman, and requested the
county to provide fire fighting
equipment for their area.
After discussion, the Board
said this area of the County is
within the St. Joseph's Fire
Control District. This means
legislation will not be neces-
sary, but because the budget
is already adopted for this
fiscal year, which does not
contain funds foir the equip-
ment that will be needed, the
county will contact the State in
an. effort to: find surplus
equipment that can be used.
The Chairman said that the
three fire commissioners will
meet with this group to work
out plans for a fire depart-
ment.:
Sparky Raffield appeared
before the Board and inform-
ed the Board that he is
desirous of giving the county
some additional right of way
in order to extend a road
across his property. He said it
would be a dead end road but
it was needed because he has
already sold this property and
has not issued deeds on it
"because he -needs to know the
required width of the road.
Raffield then told the Board
that the county tricked him
into allowing a ditch across his
property to- be opeped. after
e had kept it closed for six
years. He said he would not
agree to open the ditch unless
the county deepen his fish
pond, using the spoil for road
material. He said he gave a
-ditch easement and another
easement for the removal of
the dirt,. but the county
accepted only the ditch ease-.
ment and refused the dirt
easement; that it was his
intention not to give the ditch
unless the dirt was also
accepted. The B.oard pro-
mised to make an inspection
of this site before making a
decision.
Mrs. Ralph Nance appeared.
before the Board 'and urged
that a horticulturist be em-
ployed to replace C.R. Laird
upon his retirement. After
discussing the advantage of
having a horticulturist rather
than a regular Farm Agent,
the Board said it is to
interview an applicant for this
position within a few days and
this person is a horticulturist.
The Florida Engineering
Associates presented three
sets of as-built plans for the
Oak Grove Water and Sewer
Project. One set was delivered
to E.F. Gunn, County Building
Inspector, to be delivered to
the City of Port St. Joe. Two
copies of the maintenance
manual for the Lift Station
were also presented.
Max Kilbourn, an associate
of the Florida Engineering
Associates, discussed the ur-
gent need for the County to
select an engineer as now
required by the state before
expending the 5th and 6th cent
gasoline tax monies. He said
that he was an applicant on
behalf of the Florida Engine-
ering Associates. He said his
company has already been
employed by Calhoun County.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Gortman, se-
conded by Commissioner Tan-
kersley, and it was unani-
mously carried that the Board
advertise for the services of a
engineer for the county road
work, as required by law and
that the Department of Trans-
portation make its recom-
mendation as to the engineer
best qualified; that the adver-
tisement list work to be done,
as resurfacing and new con-
struction, for a term of one
year.
Charles A. Gaskin, Archi-
tect, presented one set of
as-built plans for the St. Joe
Public Library.
Reverend Jerry Baker, pas-
tor, Highland View Baptist
Church, presented the county
two walkers to be loaned to
anyone in need of a walker. He
said these walkers are in
memory of the Risen Savior,
the Lord Jesus Christ. The
Chairman thanked Reverend
Baker and his Church for this


gift.
gi George G. Tauper appeared
before the Board ana gave a
report on the progress being


.made on the new bridge for
Highland View. He reported
that building plans are now
being prepared; that the ne-
cessary funds have been set
aside; and that the bridge will
be constructed slightly to the
west of the present bridge in
order not 'to interfere with
with buildings on U.S. 98. He
reported that the County will
also be required to provide a
spoil area along the beach at
Highland View for the place-
ment of spoil from the canal.
Tapper then urged the County
to begin considering the ac-
quisition of the necessary title
for the spoil area. The Board
agreed to begin work on this
project. Tapper also reported
that additional right of way
would be required on the west
side of the present U.S. 98.
Durwin Hansen, Depart-
ment of Transportation, ap-
peared before the Board by
request of the County and
discussed the possibility of the
County issuing bonds for, a
road construction program
under the 5th and 6th cent
gasoline tax funds. He report-
ed that Farmer's Home Ad-
ministration now has a pro-
gram for bonding with an
interest rate of five percent up
to forty years to retire the
debt; that the State bonding
program carries a six and one
'half percent interest rate.
Commissioner Kennedy re-,
minded the Board that if a
bond issue is decided, the
Board should remember that
it is tying up these funds for
the next several Boards and
that our priority may not be
the same as one of the future
Boards. Commissioner Bir-
mingham said he was thinking
of a $2,000,000.00 issue, which
would only tie up .these funds
for ten years which means the
County will save much money
because of the annual inflation
of eight to eleven percent.
Commissioner Gortman
agreed to go ahead with a
bond issue even. though it.
would tie up these, funds for
the next two commissions
because all these streets and
roads are needed now. Com-
missioner Birmingham
moved to pursue a road'bond
issue at this time, seconded by
Commissioner Gortman.
Vote: Unanimously carried..
Tommy. Pitts.s4uggested
holding a workshop meeting to
discuss the proposed, bond
issue.
The Towh of Mexico Beach
presented three copies of the
revised Mexico Beach Gulf
.County 201 Plan. The Chair-
man requested the members
of the Board to study this plan.
In a discussion as to future
subdivisions, there was a
motion by Commissioner
Gortman, seconded by Com-
missioner Birmingham, and it
was unanimously carried, that
the owners of the subdivision
pave all streets within the
subdivision and be required to
acquire, for public use, all
necessary access easements
from the existing public
streets or roads.
The Board discussed the
fact that the County easement
to Willis Landing has now
expired. There was a motion
by Commissioner Gortman,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, for the Attorney to
contact the owners in an effort
to re-lease this property.
The Board then discussed
the possibility of S.R. 22
between 'Wewahitchka and
Panama City being returned
to the County for mainten-
ance. There was a motion by
Commissioner Kennedy, se-
conded by Commissioner
Gortman, and unanimously
carried, that the County re-
fuse to accept S.R. 22 for
maintenance.
The Board discussed its
policy as to issuing payroll


checks to its employees. Com-
missioner Gortman said that
because the personnel policy
does not spell out a method of
issuing .payroll checks; he
makes a motion that the Road
Department and Mosquito
Control Supervisors pick up
the payroll from the Fianance
Officer and hand out these
checks to the employees at the
end of their work day, second-
ed by Commissioner Tanker-
sley.' Vote: Aye Gortman,
Tankersley, Branch, Birming-
ham. Nay Kennedy.
The Board approved the
purchase of two insecticide
flow control devices and di-
rected that quotations be
taken on this equipment be-
fore purchase.
The Board was reminded of
the deadline for adopting it's
Comprehensive Plan, which is
July 1, 1979.
Tommy Pitts and E.F.
Gunn, having been instructed
to study and make their
recommendations as to the
building inspection program,
filed their report and discus-
sed it with the Commission.
After minor changes were
made, there was a motion by
Commissioner Birmingham,
seconded by Commissioner
Gortman, and it was unani-
.mously carried, that this
report be approved and that
the Attorney handle the legal
matters to incorporate these
recommendations into the
Building Ordinance.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Birmingham, seconded
by Commissioner Gortman,
the Board approved the' ap-
pointment of James 0. Watson
as Civil Defense Director.
The Board advertised for
three tone-voice pagers to be
used by the Port St. Joe
Ambulance Squad. Bids to be
received until 7:00 p.m., on
February 27, 1979.
The Wewahitchka Ambu-
lance Committee'notified the
Board that Houston Whitfield
has been selected as the Clerk
of the, Works for the Wewa-
hitchka Ambulance Building.
The Clerk presented a copy
of the Florida Energy Emer-
gency Contingency Plan,
which calls for the Board to
appoint a County Energy
Emergency Panel to be chair-
ed by the Fuel Allocatibon
Officer.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Tankersley, seconded
by Commissioner Gortman,
the Board entered into an
agreement with the Division
of Forestry; wherein said
Division of Forestry will loan,
install, and maintain radio
equipment for the Beaches
Fire Department.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Birmingham,
seconded by Commissioner.
Gortman, and it was unani-
mously carried that Rodney
Herring be appointed as
Agency Representative on the
CETA Public Service Employ-
ment Committee and District
Advisory Board.
The Clerk reported that he
had received $48,994.95 from .

fund, to be used, by the County
