the victims, Dale Hall of
Wewahitchka, suffered a
broken leg and a broken
nose. Godwin said the num-
ber of injuries were reduced
in the accident because of
the low rate of speed of the
two vehicles involved, due to
the heavy rain which was
falling at the time..
According to Trooper God-

driven by Leo M. Maguder
of Bristol failed to stop at

where it junctions with SR

the two vehicles around in
the road and they came to
rest on the east side of SR

jobs. rom the chicken operation and
fish'operation is a sizeable industry in
itself", Tapper said.
While one of the main purposes in
getting the officials to Port St. Joe
was to put them on a boat and take
them on- a tour ,of the sites to be
developed, 'a downpour of rain at: hoon
time prevented this. Buses were pro-
vided, however; to 4ake the official*e-on
a.land inspection of the sites.
SENATOR DICK STONE "
Senator Dick Stone told the gather-
ing, "This project is physically and
fiscally 'very do-able' ".
The Senator then used the meeting
as a sounding board to proclaim, "You
can't run fishing boats, ports or plants
without fuel. This nation has plenty of
existing oil fields, but federal controls
will allow the producers to get only
$6.00 a barrel for their oil when the
remainder of the world's producers


are getting twice that. The producers
of old oil will not sell at the $6.00
price."
The Senator then said he would
introduce legislation when he got back
to Washington to remove the controls
of oil prices in the nation to allow our
fields to produce as they should and
alleviate our dependence on foreign
iojl. "We have, a fuel problem", he
said. "But it is not so severe as it
once seemed.",
' Stone said he would support ap-
proval of the Mexican gas pipeline at
a fair price; he would protest week
end closing of service stations and
would urge more Canadian and Alas-
kan oil and gas be made available.
Stone said, "How do you get to the
next base? Continue as you have
started.' Get and stay increasingly
more market oriented. Sales are the
answer to repaying financing and that
is the key as to whether or not this


project will succeed."
The Senator said, "If you need my
help in bringing foreign customers
here to tell your story and get, their
ideas as to what they are looking for
in a product, I will be glad to do so",
he said.
LT. GOVERNOR WAYNE MIXSON
Lientenant Governor: Wayne Mix-
spn said. "This project is xciting.,W e .,
don't now have facilities to take
Advantage of lucrative 'out there'
business."
The Lieutenant Governor said the
official position of the State of Florida
under the new administration is, "We
think this is the type of business which
will be beneficial to Florida. We're
taking a look at our workman's com-
pensation insurance rate which is one
of the highest in the nation and we are
streamlining the cumbersome permit
process. If a business is compatible to
Florida, permits will be expedited


almost immediately."
EXCITING CONCEPT
Congressman Earl Hutto said,
"This is an exciting concept and I can
assure you that you'll get help from
Congress in your efforts".
Other speakers included Mike
Hightower, state director ,of Farmers
Home Administration who said his
organization.'wa,, looking for logical
approaches to meet rural Florida's
needs and he thought his organization
would be willing and able to aid in
financing the project.
By the time the meeting was over
at about 3:00 p.m., Saturday, the local
Port Authority had pledges from many
state and federal agencies for support
of their project and those who came
here to get a first hand look at the
program, went home satisfied that the
plan could mean a new shot in the
arm, economically, for all of North-
west Florida.


Sheriff's Deputies to Crack



Down On Litter Violators


At a news conference re-
cently, Sheriff Ken Murphy
advised that his Department,
as well as all state officers
in Gulf County, will start a
campaign of apprehending
violators of the Florida Lit-
ter Law. Murphy stated that
a considerable amount of the
tax payers' money is being
spent by the Department of
Transportation in an effort
to keep our highways clear
of garbage and trash.
"By the time the crew
clears one section of the
highway, it's time to start
over," Murphy said. "I think
we need to make the public
aware of the problem, if


they haven't noticed, and we
plan to enforce Chapter
403.413 of the Florida Statute
to its fullest extent.",
According to Florida Sta-
tute, the Sheriff says that
litter is defined as any gar-
bage, rubbish, trash, refuse,
can, bottle, container, paper,
lighted or unlighted cigarette
or cigar, or flaming or glow-
ing material.
It is unlawful, for any
person to throw, discard,
place, or deposit litter in
any manner or amount on
any public highway, road,
street, alley or thoroughfare,
including any portion of the
right-of-way, thereof, or any


other public land. In any
case, where any litter is
thrown or discarded from a".-
motor vehicle, the operator:
of the motor vehicle shall be.
deemed in violation.
Sheriff Murphy stated that.
his deputies will be paying
particular attention to the-
litter being thrown from.'-
moving vehicles.
Murphy says, "I hope that
we can make the public
aware of our problem,
where enforcement will not
be necessary, but if people
insist on littering the high-
ways, they will be dealt with
accordingly."

responded to a house fire at


Beacon Hill last Thursday
morning. The home of Curtis
Hart was a total loss as a
result of the fire.
The house was unoccupied
at the time of the fire and
the cause of the fire is
unknown. Fire departments
worked on the blaze for
approximately six hours in-
cluding their clean up time.
The beach fire department
was assisted by the Mexico
Beach fire department,
Highland View fire depart-
ment and Port St. Joe fire
department. A spokesman
from the beach fire depart-
ment stated that there was a
good response to the fire but
that the house was too far
gone when the fire was
reported.


The City' Commission told
Sylvachem manager, George
Wilberly, Tuesday night, the
City would work with the
manufacturing firm in any
way they could to come to a
conclusion as to their viola-
tion of use limits in the
Wastewater Treatment Plant
by the firm.
Sylvachem has been in
violation of their limits for
some time now and has been
warned by both the City
Commission, operators of
the plant, Environmental
Protection Agency and De-
partment of Environmental
Regulation to get back with-
in their limits.
The City has limits in its
contract" with both Sylva-


chem and St. Joe Paper
Company as to how much
and what they can put into
the plant. Stiff fines are
outlined in the agreement
for violation of the agree-
ments. The fines mostly rep-
resent the amount EPA and'
DER will levy against the
City if certain limits are not
met.
Sylvachem has been under
notice by the City and the
urging of both EPA and
DER to make renovations in
their plant to correct their
problem. Sylvachem's prob-
lem has been that they did-
n't know just what to do at
the time.
Tuesday, Wimberly ap-
peared before the Commis-


sion with Dr. Dick Jones
and Bob Edmunds- of Jones,
Edmunds and Associates of
Gainesville, telling the Com-
mission they would be
through with their study and
would have a plan of action
to correct their deficiency


by May 1 of this year. The
firm has been under a Feb-'
ruary deadline for the study,
but have been unable to
come up with it as yet-.
Plant manager Bob Simon
said he thought the City
could get by DER and EPA


requirements if they could
be assured something was
being done about the situa-
tion.
Wimberly noted that al-
ready progress was being
made in their problem, since

Glad George Tapper


Lives In Port St. Joe


One thing we would hardly get
an argument about is that George
Tapper is one of the favorite
.targets of those in our community
^who are quick to tell you just
what is the matter with our cit�
!and our county. We think this
.attitude stems from jealousy, but
S'there is no arguing the point that
i e is one ,of those targets, if not
.-one of the chief targets.
- - But, on the other hand, those
'who' would criticize Tapper and
,Ithers, were not the prime movers
4who managed to secure the pres-
ence of the largest assemblage of
.4op brass ever gathered together
min one meeting in Florida Satur-
'day, to tell .them what we want to
!do here in order 'to improve the
lot of our community and provide
.more jobs for our people and ask
' for their help in doing so.

what we thought it would do for
the Panhandle area.
The fact that they all came
told us they were interested, fav-
orably, in the plan Tapper and his
committee has outlined for build-
ing a high rise bridge for Highway
98 over the Gulf County canal and
surrounding it with a unique port
specializing in overseas shipment
of foodstuffs, at a cost of over $50
million.
We're glad George Tapper
lives in Port St. Joe. Evidently we
have nobody, else here who could
take such an ambitious undertak-
ing so far. We say we have no one
who could, since nobody has,

George, if nobody else thanks
you, we will, publicly.

She's Mad at the Referees


Dear Mr. Ramsey,
Many of the residents of
our fair city were witness to
a farce last night. We sat,
or stood, and watched refe-


rees give Vernon a basket-
ball game. It was not so
much the fouls 'they did call,
though they were grossly
inequitable, as the fouls they


did not call.
Vernon was allowed to
push and shove under the
goal, double dribble, go
"back and forth" over the


Spring is official now - the redbuds are blooming


center line, and with the
referees looking right at
these errors not a time was
any of it called.
The newspaper in Panama
City states a time ,out called
in the 'fourth quarter. That
was when one of Vernon's
players had viciously el-
bowed one of ours, hitting
him so severely in the eye it


knocked him to the floor.
Not only was no foul called
but the referee ran on down
court and continued play -
he didn't even stop the ball
while our player lay on Athe
floor in pain.
Why Port St. Joe is treat-
ed with so much malice by
the referees is something the
people directly connected
with these sports events
should find out and correct.
Our boys work hard for


their athletic skills and they
deserve better than to have
victory snatched from their
hands by deranged referees.
All Port St. Joe ball
,games on film should . be
viewed by the people who
certify these referees. These
men have no right to play
GOD. They are supposed to
be objective, that is their


purpose for being there.
Anytime I have seen a
fairly called game, Port St.
Joe has literally "swamped"
their opposition but with
these men given this power
there is no way to win. We
oppose not only five other
players, but two all-powerful
referees whose decision we
cannot dispute. In this case
Vernon knew they could
-push, shove and commit any
violation they wanted and


nothing would be called,
against them. This is not-
fair to our children. They
deserve the same chance as
any other team.
While I am writing you,
about this let me also say:
There should be a law
against holding a tourna-
ment of this stature in an
antiquated gym that seats
300 people and has no air
conditioning. At least 600
people were packed in there
like sardines. They had
drawn lines at the ends of
the court and had people
standing on top of one
another to within six inches
of the playing court. On the
opposite wall the players sat
with their feet over the line.
The goal at one end of the
court was tilted at an angle
- the goal we drew the last
half of the game - purely by
coincidence to be sure. Seve-
ral hundred people were
turned away ,and could not
even see the game after
driving all that way.
They could have held the
game in Port St. Joe, or at

to play in Vernon to insure

ETAOIN SHRDLU


By: Wesley R. Ramsey


NO DOUBT there are those in our
community and our county who feel the
money being put into our volunteer ambu-
lance service is merely providing a tool for
several people to play with and act out a
charade of being life savers. I won't say there
are many who feel this way, but considering
human nature, we feel there are some who'
have this attitude, even though it isn't
expressed very openly in public.
Those who were at the meeting Saturday
in the High School, when Bill Lyles, manager
of WJOE Radio had an attack of some sort
which left him unable to breathe for a few
minutes certainly had their minds changed if
they did have that viewpoint of our ambu-
lance service.
When Lyles began having, his attack, two


of our ambulance service volunteers, Larry
and Jan Hardison were at the meeting and
before Lyles could -lose conscienceness and
slump to the floor, they were at his side,
giving expert aid.
Lyles couldn't get his breath for a few
minutes, nor could he talk and tell those
attending him if he was choking on food or
was having some sort of attack.
The attendants were swift and concise in
their efforts and in just a few minutes had
Lyles breathing again. They worked over him
for a full five minutes and when they placed
'him on the stretcher to take him to the
hospital, he had some of his color back, was
talking and able to sit up.
If any of you still believe our ambulance
people are just playing doctor or emergency,
I'm sure you'll get a big argument to the


contrary from those who were at the meeting
and viewed their reaction, and, most of all,
from Bill Lyles, who might very well be dead
today if they had not been there and known
what to do.

A CHANNEL 13 newscaster, in interview-
ing the Port of Panama City director the
other night on the possibilities of a giant port
and seafood complex coming to Port St. Joe,
asked the port director, "Aren't they taking
what belongs to us?"
The port director gave him a very good
answer in telling the newscaster that Port St.
Joe had a fine, deep natural harbor that
should be developed. He didn't think the
business we would get for the installation
"belonged" to Panama City. I guess Channel
13's news director, if he is true to his stated
convictions, would also be aghast at all the
Port St. Joe money spent in Panama City.
Using his metaphor, "Aren't they taking
something that belongs to us?"

I HAVE a tale to tell:
Last Thursday, I was supposed to go into
a Panama City hospital to have some surgery
done on my left ear, in order to restore

hearing in it. I had reported to everyone that
I would be out of pocket over the week end.
But the Doctor said tests made in the last
few days showed that my problem couldn't be
corrected by surgery, so the trip to the
hospital was cancelled and I still have only,
about 20 percent hearing in my left ear.
Friday morning, my pastor, J. C. Odum,
came by the office, telling Frenchie, "I just
got me a brand new haircut and I'm going
over to Panama City to visit Wesley in the
hospital: what room is he in?"
Frenchie then told him I was at work and
not in the hospital as he supposed. "Shucks",
exclaimed the preacher, "I just wasted a
haircut: do you suppose they would refund
my money?"
Sunday morning, I was in my place in the
choir, to the preacher's back, as usual. Lo
and behold, as I was listening to him tell us
how we need to get our religious attention in
focus on Jesus Christ, I noticed a golden star
glittering on the back of the preacher's head,
just above the fringe line of where' his hair
used to be. The spotlights above the pulpit
made the gold star glitter and shine all
through the morning service.
How does all this tie together?
I've thought about the matter consider-
ably and I feel the gold star was put there to
laud the preacher for perseverance . . . put
there by the barber for continuing to stick
with it and come back time and time again
for a haircut when there is now more cut
than hair left on the preacher's head.
To most of us, it would hardly be worth a.
trip to the barber, if the hairs on our heaW
were numbered like his; but he persists.
That should be worth a gold star.

proper priority of prayer
into our Christian lives",
Bill Gunter, State Treasurer
and Insurance Commissioner
told about 125 people who
gathered Sunday morning
for Port St. Joe's first pray-
er breakfast.
The breakfast was the
first of what will now be an
annual event, sponsored by
the Port St. Joe Kiwanis
Club, especially for all civic
and government clubs and
leaders throughout the coun-
ty. This first breakfast was
held in the social hall of the
First United Methodist
Church.
Gunter told his listeners
that there are many gov-
ernment officials concerned
with their relationship to
God and who regularly meet
for prayer and spiritual gui-
dance in performing their
duties as public servants.
The Insurance Commissioner
has served Florida in the
House and Senate and a
term as a U.S. Congress-
man. "In all my public life,
I have found groups of con-
cerned public officials who
would join with me regularly
in prayer and who were
unashamed of their belief in
God and Jesus Christ", he
told his audience.
"There is no greater need
of the Christian than the
need for prayer. I think
politicians need it worse
since they have more pres-
sure placed against them to
conform to pressures that
would erode a person's
Christian life", Gunter told
his audience.
Present at the breakfast
were men and women from
all over the county, of every
creed and race, united for
the sole purpose of expres-
sing' their dependence on
God for guidance in their
everyday lives.

Do Metrics

Make You

Nervous?
The staff at the Gulf Coun-
ty 'Adult Institute, an equal
opportunity organization, can
help take the dread and fear
out of using .the metric mea-
suring system.
The school has the books
and equipment to teach any-
one desiring to learn all they.
need to know about measur-
ing in the metrics. There is
no fee and people who learn
the metrics now will be
ahead of the majority of the

read and remember only
that which we want. For
instance many Christians
forget that God doesn't for-
get. Verse 10 insures us that
God does remember those
things done by Christians in
His name. Especially in mi-
nistering to other Christians.
In Verse 9 we see better
things are in store for Chris-
tians and these are things
which ACCOMPANY SAL-
VATION. You see being
born again is only the be-
ginning of salvation.
There is the daily walk
with God as Verse 11 says
"so as to realize the full
assurance of hope (confident
expectation) until the end."
And then the Christian is not
to be sluggish, that is, impa-
tient in hope. But we are
actually to imitate those who
have obtained God's promi-
ses through faith and pa-
tience.
It is painful indeed for a
Christian to "wake up" and
realize the world is going to
hell and he isn't doing any-
thing to prevent it. Christ-
ians it's time we got on our
knees and faces before God
and find out where we are
to be in His service. I want
to know, don't you?

pends on the type of grass,
its growth habit and texture.
Pensacola and Paraguayan
bahiagrass should be cut
from three to four inches
high while Argentine 'bahia-
grass is best cut from two to
three inches high. Both Car-
petgrass and Centipedegrass
can be maintained from one
and, one half to two inches
high. St. Augustine grass
cultivars vary in the proper
cutting height. Cutting
height for Roselawn and.
common is three to four
inches, for Bitterblue, Scotts
1081, and Floratam is two to
three inches, Meyer one to
two inches and Emerald one
half to one inch. Common
bermuda grasses can be
mowed at one half to one
inch while the hybrids ber-
muda grasses can be clipped
as low as one-third inch.
The correct cutting height
is important to the health of
your lawn. The leaves /must
produce enough food to al-
low the plant to survive and
grow: If too much of the
leaves are removed the
grass will starve and your
sod will become thin, look
bad and be more susceptible
to invasion by weeds and


pests. Mowing too high
causes the buildup of thatch
(a spongy layer of plant
debris)
The frequency of mowing
is dependent on the type of
lawngrass, the maintenance
program and the weather.
Warm weather and heavy
fertilization will increase the
growth rate of grasses, as a
result they will need to be
mowed more often. Your
lawn should.be cut frequent-
ly enough that no more than
one third of the leaf.surface
is removed at a time. Car-
petgrass and Centipedegrass
may not need to be cut
more often than once every
10 to 14 days while hybrid
Bermuda grasses may need
to be cut every* three days.
Most lawngrasses fit within
this range. The important
thing to remember is leave
twice as much leaf surface
as you remove at any single
mowing. Or, if you want to
maintain your lawn at two
inches cut your grass when
it is three inches high.
It is important to follow
good mowing practices.
Keep your lawnmower sharp
and clean. Dull blades will
tear the leaves giving an


uneven ragged appearance
and often cause the lawn to
look gray or brown.
Remember, proper mow-
ing is one of the most
important factors contribut-
ing to an attractive lawn.
Proper mowing means that
the grass is cut at the
optimum height and often
enough to keep it healthy
and attractive.

SPICED CUPCAKES
FOR KIDS' PARTIES


Spiced cupcakes can easily be the center of attraction at
children's birthday parties, and especially when the kids
can join in and make the cakes themselves. These are
easily prepared from a handy mix, with chocolate chips,
cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg and cloves stirred in.
Those sweet spices are the ones youngsters have always
loved and they smell so good they like using them, too.
SPICED CHOCOLATE CHIP CUPCAKES
1 package (1 lb. 1 oz.) pound cake mix
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 package (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 package (3 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons milk or water
Preheat oven to 375oF. In a medium mixer bowl blend
cake mix with 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon, nutmeg and
cloves. Prepare cake mix according to package directions.
Fold in chocolate chips. Line 24 cupcake pans with paper
liners. Fill up cake pans with batter..Bake until a cake
tester inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out
clean, about 15 minutes. Remove from pans; cool. Spread
with Cinnamon Frosting. To prepare Cinnamon Frosting
beat in a medium bowl cream cheese and butter until well
blended. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, mixing until
smooth. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and
vanilla. Gradually add milk, beating until frosting is of
spreading consistency. YIELD: 24 cupcakes.

.Playing .in an impossibly
.crowded situation in the tiny
.Vernon gym, the Port St.
I-Joe Sharks had their dreams
-of a state title nipped by the
,undefeated Yellow Jackets,
;73i63 last Saturday night.
Using their deadly long
bsooting skill to good advan-
-tage, the Sharks jumped off
,.to an early lead in the
,game,, but the Yellow Jack-
kits quickly caught up and
,the lead see-sawed back and
forth for the remainder of
the game, until Vernon
made a run for it in the last
three minutes to earn their
place in the state play-offs.
With a minute left in the
first period, the Sharks took
,a slim, one point lead 'on a
.Cleveland Riley jumper and
.ended ,the period with a 19-18
,edge over the Jackets.
' Two minutes into the sec-
"Ond period, the Sharks long
-shots had pulled them out in
front in a 23-18 score, as
.Willie Boykin tipped the ball
InA. for a field goal. The
*Jackets called time out to
' et their troops in line and
'edged out to a 36-32 lead by
tfie half time rest period.
The Sharks gained their
lead in the second period on
siX straight baskets from the
outside.
The Sharks again took the
scoring lead in the third
period, with Tony Larry
scoring all the Shark points.
-on two short jumpers and
four lay-ups on drives to the
:asket. Even. though the
Parks led in third period:
'scoring, they were still two
points behind as the final
stanza began.
. The Sharks stayed within
Striking distance, giving the
,Tellow Jackets all they
could handle until the last
three minutes of the. game,
when the Jackets' Kenny
Peterson began to hit. Pet-
,erson picked up 11 of his 35
points in the game in the
Aast three minutes to give
lis team the margin they
,rieeded to win.
- Vernon will now meet Hil-
.lard High in the first round
;of the state tournament this
.week end in Lakeland.
Peterson led the Jackets
with his 35 points, just as he
has done all year long. The
other Vernon sharp-shooter,
Bertram Smith had 23
points.

R.
n,
J.
n,


The youthful Sharks dropped their
first baseball game of the season and
rode an early lead to win their second
in a double header with the Marianna
Bulldogs Saturday.
The Sharks couldn't get it on track
in the first game, mustering only two
hits in the 10-0 shut-out pitched by
veteran Marianna right-hander Ray
Deming. David Fowler was the losing
pitcher for the Sharks with the only
two hits being registered by Tim
Beard and Ashley Abrams.
In the second game the Sharks got


over their first game jitters and
jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first
inning. A double by Freddie Woullard
and a single by Steve Peak were key
hits in the inning, netting three RBI's
for the pair.
The only other run for the Sharks
came in the fifth inning when Steve
Peak scored off a wild pitch.
Marianna scored five unearned runs
off the Sharks for a final score of 7-5.
Steve Peak was the winning pitcher
for the Sharks with Freddie Woullard


registering a save. Chuck Hatcher was
the losing pitcher for the Bulldogs.
The Sharks showered nine hits
through the game placing five in the
first inning and spreading the others
through the remaining eight innings.
Tim Beard, Blain Cox, Freddie Woul-
lard and David Fowler each had two
hits in the game.
Next game for the Sharks will be
tonight at 8:00 p.m., against Leon High
as they compete in the Florida High

tion leading up to the region-
al event. Their sights then
are focused on the state fair,

government project provides
employment, on . the job
training and vocational edu-
cation for those who need it.
"It provides the vehicle for
people to get off welfare",
Langston pointed out.
The directors said the
program here in Gulf County
became a non-profit organi-
zation on December 1, oper-
ating under the guidance of
the director, Langston. Pre-
viously the program had
been operated by the Gulf
County School Board. It pro-
vides job opportunities to the
economically disadvantaged,
the unemployed or the
underemployed.
Classroom tuition is paid
for those who can qualify to
gain training at a technical
school in a specific trade or
craft. Langston said this
program is currently dperat-
ing by placing students at
Tom P. Haney or Lively
Tech. A student may also
couple this classroom work
with a part-time job. The
service also aids those who
need it to complete elemen-
tary or high school work.
The on the job training
program pays a portion of a
trainees wages up to $3.50
for a period of time, as
specified by a trade or craft
being trained for. After this
program, the trainee must
be hired by the business or
industry in which he is
working.. "If a candidate
clearly cannot make the
grade or is an undesirable
employee, he can be termin-
ated by the employer before
the training period is over",
Langston said.,
The office also oversees
the traditional CETA em-
ployee in which the govern-
ment pays the employees
salary to work in a public-
related vocation for up to a
year.
Langston said that at pre-
sent Gulf County is getting
$138,000 for the program
which is being used to try to
get people now on welfare
prepared to earn their own
way.

their BOD count had been
reduced from 21,600 pounds
to 15,600 pounds during the
last quarter of 1978 and that
their suspended solids count
had been lowered from 7,700
to 6,200 pounds per day
during the same period.
Sylvachem's limits are
2,200 pounds of BOD and 950
pounds of suspended solids
per day.
OAK GROVE WATER
Clerk Charles Brock said
he had received an objection
from the County for charg-
ing the Oak grove water
system for repair of a brok-
en main recently. The agree-
ment with Oak Grove calls
for the customers to pay a
surcharge on their monthly
bills for routine mainten-
ance. All extra-ordinary re?
pairs are to be charged by
the City to the system. The
broken main was considered
by the City as an extra-
ordinary maintenance prob-
lem: the county didn't think
the system should pay for
the repairs.
The Commission agreed
'Tuesday night to see how it
comes out after the first
year of the, agreement,
which will be up in about six
months before defining
maintenance costs to a finer
degree.
Two or three Oak Grove
residents have complained
with rusty water, but Dot
Hadden, the City Superinten-
dent reported it is his opin-
ion the rust came from old
galvanized pipes releasing
their scale from the former
pump water after the freeze
and cold weather which hit
the area recently.
ELECTION TIME-TABLE
Clerk Brock presented the
Commission with a full elec-
tion time-table for the regu-
lar spring primaries, in light
of the threatening recall
election petition which is
.currently in the process of
being verified by Supervisor
of Elections, Mrs. Dessie
Lee Parker.
Brock's report said:
Candidates for Commission
Groups one, two and three
must qualify on or before
April 18.
Registration books in Mrs.
Parker's office will close to
voter registration 20 days
prior to the election. This
'date will fall on April 6. The
books will not be open again
until after the election.
Absentee ballots would be
available on April 18 and
would remain available until
five days prior to election,
which would make the cut-
off date for absentee ballots
May 3.
. The first primary election
is May 8.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the
Commission:
-Granted Randal McClain
a variance for construction
of a storage house at the
rear of his lot on LonQ
Avenue.
-Agreed to inform the
City of Mexico Beach the
City would accept their sew-
age in the Wastewater
Treatment Plant, setting
limits of 500,000 gallons a
day at present.
-Agreed to install street
lights on Cypress and Juni-
per Streets.

Mullet - A Tasty Winter Treat
Fishin' for new menu ideas to brighten up dreary winter
weather appetites? Something hot and succulent, yet colorful
and uniquely flavored would fill the bill.
Tartar Baked Mullet is made-to-order. It features, the
moist, nutty-flavored mullet, which has long been the
favorite fish of commercial fishermen. The complimenting
note is supplied by a zesty make-it-yourself tartar sauce.
� Mullet is found throughout the world in warm tropical or
subtropical waters. Over 75 percent of the U.S. mullet
production comes from Florida.
Nutritious as well as delicious, mullet are about 20 percent
protein and contain approximately 200 calories per 6-ounce
serving. As if that were not tantalizing enough, this prized
catch is very economical and can be prepared in just
minutes.
:Spark appetite appeal with a delicious winter time treat -
try mullet!
TARTAR BAKED MULLET
pounds pan-dressed mullet or other pan-dressed fish, fresh

I4 teaspoon liquid hot pepper sauce
1% teaspoons salt
li cup Tartar Sauce (substitute a commercial sauce if
desired)
$sW cups unseasoned dry bread crumbs
Vk cup melted margarine or butter
Tartar Sauce, optional
;:Thaw fish if frozen. Divide fish into serving-size portions.
Brush all surfaces of fish with liquid hot pepper sauce and
sprinkle with salt. Coat all surfaces of fish with tartar sauce.
Roll fish in bread crumbs. Place fish on a well-greased
biking platter, 15 x 9% x /2 inches. Drizzle melted margarine
over fish. Bake in a very hot oven, 450 degrees F., for 12 to 15
minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Serve with additional tartar sauce if desired. Makes 6
servings.
*Mullet vary in size according to the season of the year. If
iin-dressed mullet are 8 to 10 ounces each, allow one fish per
brving. For larger mullet, cut into serving-size portions.
Cooking time may need to be increased for larger fish. Check
fish to make sure it flakes easily when tested with a fork.

going to the people, instead
of the reverse. He cited the
increasing number of . off-
campus services that are
now offered. An example of
this trend is educational
television, used as an educa-
tional option at Gulf Coast.
One of the issues currently
facing the community col-
leges, according to Gleazer,
is the need to suit credit
courses to satisfy the imme-
diate :career needs of the
students. He emphasized not
only teaching job skills, but
working to retrain people for
re-entry into the job market.
He stated that the purpose
of his visit to Gulf Coast
was to gather information
about the current state of
community colleges in the
United States. While in Flor-
ida, Gleazer consulted with
many leaders of the busi-
ness, educational, and politi-
cal communities, including
Senate' Phil Lewis, presi-:-
dent of the Florida Senate,
and Ralph Turlington, Com-
missioner of Education.
The results of Gleazer's
research will be presented in
a forthcoming book in which
he will discuss the mission
of the community college in
1980's.

Organic gardening is the
secret of bug control. It isn't a
recent development as some
may believe. There's nothing
mysterious about the process
and anyone who wants to can
use the method. It is only in
recent years that it became
known by its present name.
Easily made compost nou-
rishes beneficial bacteria and
earthworms. Humus feeds
plants and helps retain water
for gradual release.
When chemical pesticides
invaded our land shortly after
World War II they killed
unfriendly and beneficial in-
sects alike. Even insects clas-
sed as undesirable are part of
a food chain for birds and each
year thousands of our feather-
ed friends are poisoned by
eating dead or dying insects.
Animals that eat affected
birds often perish. Balance
that nature had built over


first step in reducing our bug
problem.
Unwanted insects, like
weeds, are something we
cannot eliminate entirely but
they can be controlled by
natural means. Pesticides cer-
tainly are not the answer.
Bugs have been barraged with
chemical poisons for more


destruction.
Gardening organically in
Florida can be done success-
fully. It requires an under-
standing of how nature in-
tended growth and a desire
to. have a garden of your
own. It has many advanta-
ges and gives healthful, out-
door exercise.


IF YOU LIKE NAPA PARTS,
YOU'LL LOVE THE NAPA MACHINE SHOP.
When your vehicle parts have worn out,
you've probab' learned to head for your local
NAPA store for top quality replacements. But
what do you do when something on your vehi-
cle needs machine work?
The answer is the same. Your local NAPA
store features a machine shop that offers a
long list of machine work equal in quality to
NAPA parts.
Your NAPA machine shop can grind your
valves, turn your brake drums, repair ignition
and distributor units, rebore and rebuild
engines, press axle bearings and much more.
Top quality repair work and top quality NAPA
parts spell more miles for your car and more
savings for you. So check with your NAPA
store for both parts and machine work.

tories will be available to

makes even an everyday meal special and generations of chil-
dren! have dutifully downed their spinach in the promise-of this
treat for dessert. Hot Pudgy Pudding, a luscious variation on the
popular theme, is especially heartwarming on a frosty night and
elegant enough to serve guests. It's also easy to put together
in minutes, since you add cocoa directly from the can (no
baking chocolate to melt, no messy clean-up). Simply combine
the dry ingredients, stir in the liquids and nuts, spread into a
pan. Mix up the crunchy coconut directly from the can (no
baking chocolate to melt, no messy clean-up). Simply combine
the dry ingredients, stir in the liquids and nuts, spread into a
pan. Mix up the crunchy coconut/brown sugar topping, cover
with boiling water and bake. Cocoa blends readily with other
ingredients so pudding should have excellent, smooth texture.
And most Important, because cocoa is chocolate in a very
concentrated form, flavor will be extra rich, extra chocolate.
