Supervisor of Registration Dessie
Lee Parker returned a recall petition to
.City Clerk; Charles Brock Thursday of
last week and had to add some
additional pertinent information to the
petition Friday of last week.,In her final
presentation, Friday afternoon, Mrs.
Parker' certified that 451 legal signa-
tures- were onrithe petition..
To be a legal call for a recall
election, the petition needed 424 signa-
tures.
Monday, Clerk Brock mailed, by
.certified rail a notice. to the four
Commissioners involved, as required
by the recall election law, giving the
affected parties an opportunity 'to
resign, if they wished; Resignation is
.offered to affected officers to make the
special election unnecessary if they
decide to 4o so..
All of the Port St. Joe Commissioin-


erslisted on the petition have stated
they will not resign. All have 'stated
they have abided by the City Charter
Sand the Municipal Hospital by-laws in'
their actions in the past which have led
to the recall petition. "Any other
elected official would also have to abide
by these rules in a given situation",
said Mayor-Commissioner Frank Pate,
one of those named .for .recall and
spokesman for the four Commissioners.
in the matter.
'Bock's letter gave each of the
Comrmiisioners, Pate, James B. Rob-
erts, Wesley R. Ramsey and John
Robert Smith, five days in which to
decide whether or not to resign.
The next step in the matter will be
for Clerk Brock to certify the petition to
the Commission that the document is a
legal recall petition. The next step is for
the document to go before the circuit
judge for verification and setting an


election date.
The recall petition stems from
actions of the Commission, acting in
their capacity at the Board of Directors
of the Municipal: Hospital.
Controversy began when the Board
notified Doctors P. V. and Anila Poonai
to move their offices out of the
Municipal Hospital. The move was
suggested arid agreed to by the Doctors,
but the controversy flared anyhow.
I Matters deteriorated between the
Doctor and his followers aid the Board,
until the most recent action,, in which
the Board removed the privileges of Dr.
Anila Poonai 'to practice medicine in'
the hospital. This move was made by
the Board after two medical examining
panels recommended that the privileg-
es be removed.
The petition was filed with the City
Clerk about 10 days after the privileges
were revoked..

Edwards Spells



Way to Victory

Stuart Edwards spelled "emancipation" and "bibliogra-
phy" to win Gulf County's fifth' annual spelling bee
championship last Thursday morning. Young Edwards,
representing Port St. Joe High School, is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Jerry Edwards of Indian Pass. He will represent Gulf
County at the regional spelling bee in Jacksonville later this
month to decide the state championship.
Edwards got his chance at the championship when
Stephanie Hill of Highland View missed the word, "emanci-
pation". Edwards then had to spell her missed word and a
second word to win.
Thursday's championship contest was made up of
representatives from all five Gulf County schools, grades
five through eight. Fighting it out for the chance to go to
Jacksonville Thursday were Stephanie Hill of'Highland View
Elementary; Annette Minger, Port St. Joe Elementary;
Rena Pursewell, Wewahitchka High; Michelle Lister of
Wewahitchka Elementary and Edwards.
Edwards had an earlier chance at the championship
when Miss Hill mis-spelled "Elicitor". Edwards spelled it
correctly, but mis-spelled "Cantata":
S Both spellers spelled words like "Imponderable" and
)Fastidious" before coming down to the wire.
IiL Marion Craig was the pronouncer for the spelling bee and
Lura Geddie and Catherine Ramsey were the judges.

A Layman's View


Bible Notes

By BILLY NORRIS


Romans 4:2-5 (NAS)
Key Word: Faith is Righteous-
ness
(v. 2) "For if Abraham was
justified by works, he has
something to boast about; but
not before to God." (v. 3) "For
what does the scripture say?
'And Abraham believed God,
ana it was reckoned unto him
- --righ'teossness.' (v. 4)
,"1qoW to the one who works his
wage is not reckoned as a
favor but as what is due." (v.
5) "But to the one who does not
work, butbelieves in Him who
justifies the ungodly, his faith
is reckoned as righteousness."
There is a thought by many
in some religious circles that
we are justified (declared

right in God's sight) by one's
own works or ability. But' this
thought is not supported by
God's word. In fact God's
word says if this was possible
a person would certainly have
something to boast about, but
not in God's presence.
God's word says Abraham's
faith was counted as right-
eousness. He was justified by
God, not his own works. God's
word goes to a great deal of
concern to explain in verse 4
that he who works will get his
earned wage. This is talking of


spiritual things and working to
justify ones self.
Verse 5 now shows us God's
plan and way for us. The one
who does not work (to justify
himselfI but believes in God
who justifies all who has faith
in Him has his faith counted as
righteousness (right standing.
with God.)
God's way for us is that we
..have complete faith- and trust
'"i H im. He already has done
all that is needed through
Jesus for our salvation and
everything else. We need only
to accept that.

ETAOIN SHRDLU


By: Wesley R. Ramsey


THE LEGISLATURE has gone back into
session, doing its thing for another year .
coming up with another budget which will do us
for two years and amount to some $16 billion.
From what I read in the papers, our new
IGovernor, Bob Graham, is going to hit the
Legislature up for a little tax relief for us tax
payers. I'll count that dollar when I see it.
SThis new session of the Legislature should be
interesting, what with the Governor's insistence
.that he will lower the property tax rate, improve
the state participation in school operations while
reducing the local participation in school
financing. The Governor also tells us he will push
for changes in the state's attitude toward
industry in order to attract new jobs to our state.
If he could just get a sensible, workable attitude


out of the permitting department, I think he
would be headed in the right direction toward
attracting new jobs.
The Governor and the Legislature have their
work cut out for them if they hope to make all
these rosy promises come .true. I hope they
succeed.

WE HAD A DEATH in the family last week.
A relative of one of our "children" died and has
gone to meet his maker.
As a result of this untimely demise, Sidney is
in mourning. Last week we learned that Sidney's
daddy had died. His "mother", Margie Moss
sent us this obituary on Sidney's daddy. Sidney,
by the way, didn't attend the funeral. He did
grieve to the point where he would not eat any


parched peanuts all day long.
"The King is dead. King William the Great
died March 23 at the age of seven. Sunrise
funeral service was held March 24. He was the
grandson of the Great Int. Ch. Silver Sparkle of
Sassafras. The "King" was known to all his
many friends as "Lil Willie", however, never
once did he let you forget he was "King".
"He was small in size less than four
pounds but he was a pussy cat at heart. He was
also as brave as a lion, running every dog or cat
at Mexico Beach, however large. He was "King"
and the beach was his and the beach will not be
the same without that four-pound tiger. He died
as he lived, with dignity. He shall be missed by
all.
"He is survived by one sister, Princess Chi
Chi, Mobile, Ala., one son, Sir Sidney Ramsey,
Port St. Joe and his faithful servants, Bob and
Margie Moss.
"Request in lieu of flowers, please give to the
Humane Societies or buy a poodle."
I know you are saying to yourself, "That's
silly. All that fuss over a dog." The only trouble
is that you have never owned a poodle -
especially a "Sidney" or a "Lil Willie".


THE STORY of the problems with the
nuclear power plant up in Pennsylvania now has
better news for us to listen to than was available
the first of last week. The latest word is that
technicians now have the problem under control
and are winding it down to a safe conclusion.
All the writers got on the bandwagon to tell
us, "Uh huh, see there; we've been telling you all
along just how dangerous these things, are."
Monday, we even heard a story telling us of
the dangers from* the troubled plant and its
potential possible threat' to the people in the
area. In the next breath, the commentator told
us of the first suits now being filed on the night
club fire in northern Kentucky a year ago where
about 180 people died in a fire.
We want to ban nuclear energy plants
because of one accident, but there.his been no
thought given to banning night clubs, where
nearly 180 DID die on this one occasion. Then,
there's the old Coconut Grove fire of several
years ago where over 200 died.
The nation was naturally apprehensive of
the possibilities from the nuclear plant accident
and its threat to the people in the vicinity.
The point is, as I see it; the safeguards
required to be installed in the plant DID work.
There was no loss of life nor leakage of enough
radiation to be a threat to anyone. Only the
possibility.

WE WENT to Warner Robins, Ga., cver the
week end to help brother-in-law celebrate his
25th wedding anniversary. The last time we

Local Youth Ensemble Wins District Competition In Bristol


The March meeting of the'
St. Joseph Bay Chapter
Daughters of the American
Revolution was held at the
Garden Center on Eighth
Street, Wednesday noon,
March 28. Hostesses for this
occasion were Mrs. George
Suber, Mrs. H.J. Brouillette,
and Mrs./Ronald Childers.
Guests were Mr. and Mrs.
Eddie Nesmith and Mrs.
James McNeill.
Mrs. Charles Brown intro-
duted the speaker, Ranger
Eddie Nesmith from Fort
Gadsden ,State Park;,as an
authority on Andrew Jackson
and James Gadsden, saying
S that he had been at the park
since it had been established
in 1961.
Mrs. Noble Stone based her
Civil Defense Report on an
article by Governor Mildrin


Thompson, Jr., entitled "Tax
Revolt and Personal Liberty",
in which he stated that tax
revolt is not new to our day but
began more than 200 years ago
with protest of The Stamp Act
of 1865, and he mentioned
Patrick Henry and his famous
slogan, "Give me liberty or
give me death". Mrs; Stone
said .that as difficult as things
-were for the colonists, the
situation is much' worse
ptday: that today 44 cents of
every dollar goes for taxes;
that in 1789 the,total national
budget was $650,000 for four
million people about 23
percent per capital cost,of the
federal government; that to-
day the percapita cost is
-$2,500.
The title of Mrs. Paul
Johnsen's report on DAR
schools was "Build our


Schools on a Firm Foundat-
tion". She said that education
had always been an objective
of DAR and discussed the two
schools supported entirely by
this organization, "Tomassee
DAR School" in Tomassee,
North Carolina, and "Kate
Duncan Smith DAR School in
Alabama, as well as the four
other schools DAR helps to
support. She said Florida
stands 15th in the nation in
giving to the schools. The
schools are now operating at a
loss and are seeking addition-
al support.
Mrs. Tom Owens, Regent,
gave a very interesting and
informative report on the
recent State meeting held in
Panama City. She reported
that St. Joseph Bay Chapter
had four voting delegates and
that 12 members had attended.

rights on a parcel of that land.
The land, bought by the
state between 1975 -and 1977
under the Land Conservation
Act of 1972, is in Indian Swamp
near Port Sl. Joe.
Lister said in the suit, filed
last year,, that when he sold
nearly 8,000 acres of swamp-
land in 1969 to a Panama City
Panker, Hamilton Kenner, he
retained his right to cut
timber on the land as part of


in money it would have
received for the trees.
Lister, contacted at his
office, refused to comment on
the advice of his lawyer,
Charles Isler of Panama City.
Isler also refused to comment.
Fewer than 50 trees report-
edly were cut on the land after
it came under state owner-
ship, but Mike Lister said
recently he may'have cleared
hundreds of acres before the
land was sold.

GREEK BROILED FISH-
ELEGANTLY EASY
SNo true seafood lover has missed the opportunity to savor
the delicious flavor of mackerel. Baked, fried, smoked or
broiled, mackerel is a winner.
This sleek fish inhabits the wairm waters ranging from the
Chesapeake Bay to the Texas coast. The area of greatest
abundance, however, is Florida, where over twelve million
pounds are landed yearly.
Modern technology and transportation have made
mackerel available year-round in supermarkets and seafood
markets. Easy accessibility, economical cost, and variety in
preparation have made mackerel an increasingly popular
menu item at home as well in restaurants.
If you haven't tried mackerel, Greek Broiled Fish is an
excellent choice with which to begin. The ingredients can
probably be found on your pantry, shelf, and the cooking time
is just a matter of minutes. Garnished to perfection, this
entree will be a delicious and nutritious favorite at your
house as well.
GREEK BROILED FISH
2 pounds Spanish mackerel fillets, fresh or frozen
1 teaspoon salt
1' teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons melted margarine or olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons margarine or olive oil

1% cups chopped parsley
1 cup chopped fresh tomato
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Thaw fish if frozen. Skin fillets. Dry fillets. Sprinkle fillets
with salt and pepper. Place fillets on well-greased baking
pan, 15 x 9% x % inches. Combine 2 tablespoons melted
margarine, lemon juice and garlic and pour over fillets. Broil
fillets about 4 inches from source of heat for 4 to 6 minutes.
Turn carefully and baste fillets with pan-drippings. Broil 4 to
6 minutes longer. In a 1-quart saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons
margarine. Add onion and cook until tender, but not brown.
iStir in parsley and tomatoes and cook just long enough to

800 More Acres Planted by MK Ranches




First Rice Crop Calls oror ore


MK Ranches' experiment
with introducing the cultiva-
.tion of rice in Gulf County as a
money crop yielded 85 bushels
to the acre, Steve Shoaf, in
charge of the experiment, told
the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day.
Shoaf said the initial yield
on the experimental 100 acres
has encouraged the famrs,
which operate in the Howard
Creek area, to plant 800 acres
this year.
"This is our second year
with the experiment", Shoaf
said. If we have good results
for'three years in a row, we
will go into the business of
growing rice on a big basis."
Shoaf said one of the things
they must think of in the
future, is a place to market
their product. "At present, we
are having to truck our
product to either Freeport or
Blountstown to get it shipped
out." Shoaf said their initial
crop was sold for foreign
Export;
The young farm operator
said if his firm gets into rice
seriously, they will berotating
their rice crop with other
small grain crops. "We will'
plant rice two years, then
alternate with soy beans, corn
or cotton to give the soil a rest
from producing the same crop
each year. What one crop
takes from the soil, another
puts back in."
Shoaf said one of the main
things which interested MK in
growing rice here is that their
location has an abundance of
silt-loam, which holds water
well. The other was the
,availability of water. "With
soil which holds water, this
reduces our pumping costs,
cutting our growing costs by
as much as 10 percent", the
speaker said.

Orient, rice is planted in wet
fields. Here in Gulf County, as
in Arkansas (another large
rice producing state) the grain
is planted on a dry field with a
grain drill, just as any other
grain crop is planted.
Two to three weeks after
planting, the field is fertilized
and chemicals applied to
control weeds and insects
from an airplane. Then the
field is flooded. The flooding is
done to keep down weeds.
Shoaf said it takes the crop
from 110 to 115 days to mature.
"We usually start planting
June, but this year we planted
this month so we can get two
crops off this year."
In making a comparison
with the Orient, Shoaf said it


takes 400 man days of hard
work to harvest an acre of
rice. Here in the United
States,'it takes two man days
per acre.
As a matter of information,
Shoaf said insects destroy one
third of the food produced in
the world each year. "This is
the reason we use pesticides in
our program."
SIDE CROP
Shoaf said his family is now
looking at the possibility '?f
producing crawfish for com-
mercial purposes in their
fields. "Crawfish and rice go
together and we feel it will add
to our venture."
Rice has been a food staple
with man since 3,000 years
before Christ. It has been
grown as a'food in the United


States since 1694, when it was 1978 and Steve Shoaf feels it
introduced in the state of will be an important part of
South Carolina. Rice was the future economy of the
introduced in Gulf County in county.

The Board'of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida met March 13, 1979
with the following members
present: William R.'Branch,
Chairman, Leo Kennedy,
James L. Tankersley, Douglas
C. Birmingham, and Jimmy
O. Gortman. Others present
were: George.Y. Core, Cleik,
Jerry T. Gates, Finance Offi-
cer, K.E. Murphy, Sheriff,
STomny Pitts, Administrative.
Assiptant-Mosquito Control.
S Director, and Lloyd Whitfield,
S Road Superintendent.
V The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. Reverend J.C.
Odum, pastor,. Long Avenue
Baptist Church, Port St. Joe,
opened the meeting with pray-
er followed by the pledge to
the flag. .
The minutes of February
27, 1979, read, approved, and
adopted.'
The Chairman announced
that, pursuant to legal notice
calling for engineering servi-
ces for road construction,
sixteen firms have filed state-
ments of interest and that this
material will be considered at
Sa special meeting to be held
later this week. A copy of the
firms is on file in the Clerk's
office.
E.F. Gunn County Building
r spector, informed the Board
that a few .citizens were
questioning the building code
ordinance number 79-1 as
advertised. He. said he ex-
plained.the ordinance to those
that were upset about it. He
then read 'several sections
from the Southern Building
Code, which has been adopted
by the County as its code. He
explained that one area they
were upset about was "Main-
tenance", thinking that a
permit was required. He ex-
plained to them that mainten-
ance to a structure does not
( i require a permit. He told
the Board that maintenance
Swas repairs to doors, win-
; dows, pipes, roofs, etc., but,.
that if the present structure is
altered or additions made', a
permit is required. He said
that the County does not'
require a permit for a tem-
porary building. In a discus-
sion that followed, he explain-
ed that the County does not
Charge several fees,ps listed in
/ the Southern Btilting Ciop,
t ,J the big one being the fee fior
Checking building plans,
which saves the builder one-
halfof his fee. He then said the
citizens of the County should
realize that the building code
is demanded by law and if this
Board does not enforce the
code, the State will do it at a
much greater'cost to the
builder.
Tommy Pitts, Administra-
tive Assistant, presented a.
proposed statement to be
advertised with reference to
:the building code ordinance.
The Board had heretofore
requested Pitts to prepare a
statement in an effort to
advise the public about the
requirements of the building
code. The Board discussed
this proposed statement and
then agreed that it be publish-
ed.
Pitts suggested that a spe-
cial meeting be called for the
purpose of discussing the
proposed bond issue for road
construction, the selection of
an engineering firm and to set
priorities for road and street
work. The Chairman called a
special meeting for March 16,
(W 1979, at 7:00 p.m.
S Pitts then advised the Board
that after leaving this meeting
he would attend the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council
meeting in Blountstown. He
4 informed the Board that the
Committee appointed to re-
commend guidelines for indi-
gent hospital patients had not
received information from
other counties that is neces-
sary before making a. recom-
mendation. The Chairman ap-
pointed Commissioner Leo
Kennedy to this Committee.
S?J. Taylor told the Com-
mission that a culvert has
been purchased and is on the
site for the Boger-Laurimore
ditch and requested the Road
Department to install it. The
Road Superintendent was di-
rected to do this work and to
contact the manager of Sun-
land Park on St. Joseph
Peninsula to discuss some
work he requires.
Commissioner Birmingham
discussed a Mosquito Control
ditch at Jack Taylor's proper-
ty in Wewahitchka that is


eroding and damaging the
property. After discussing this
matter with the Mosquito
Control Director, the Board
directed the Mosquito Control
Department to re-shape the
ditch and that no pipe be used.
Commissioner Tankersley
reported that the County gra-
der has been encroaching on
private property while scrap-
ing Georgia Street in St. Joe
Beach. The Road Superinten-
dent will correct this.
The -Attorney discussed
changes being made in certain
/i ordinances. He advised the
'Commission that when chan-
t -es are necessary, that the
jetire ordinance should be
adoDted. with the changes


reflected and that by using
this method, anyone interes-
ted could obtain a copy of only
the correct ordinance and it
would not be necessary to
secure copies"of two or three
:ordinances 'that correct the
original. '
Honorable.Leonard J. Hall,
Representative, was intro-
duced by William J. Rish,
County Attorney. The Board
welcomed Hall, to this meet-
ing. Hall said that he was only
visiting and would be glad to
hear any recommendations or
any problems. .
Robert H. Ellzey, Jr., of
Black's Island, presented a
petition with 675 signatures
requesting that the County
and State request the Legisla-
ture to pass appropriate laws
to prevent all scalloping with
drag neets in the St.' Joseph
Bay. He informed the Board
that 99 percent of the popula-
tion wants the bay closed to'
drag net.scalloping and only
about six to ten 'of all the.
people.in the County object.
He said that' he lives in the
area of the bay that is.' so
popular for hundreds of people
who wade out into the bay and
pick up the scallops with their
hands. He said that this part of
the bay is only two and one
half to three feet deep which is
perfect' for recreation activi-
ties, with the most popular
being-picking up scallops.
Commissioner, Kennedy said
previous.Boards of County
Commissioners have attempt-'
ed to get the bay closed to drag
net scalloping but never suc-.
ceeded. He then made a
motion that the Board adopt a
resolution requesting the Le-
gislature to close St. Joselph
Bay. to drag net scalloping
during the months .of April,
May, June and July of each
year, the area to be closed is.

Motion seconded by Commis-
sioner Tankersley and unani-
mously carried. ...
Gary Roy; representing the
Port St. Joe Jayyees, inform-
ed the Board that (ie Jaycees
are sponsoring a circus and
then requested that the County
license be waived. After dis-
cussing this request, there
was'.a motion by Commission-
er Tankersley, seconded by
Commissioner Gorfman, to
grant this request. Vote: Aye -
Tankersley, Gortman, Bir-
mingham, and the Chairman.
Nay Kennedy. Commissioner
SKennedy said he voted against
the motion because this opens
the door to all.other organiza-
tions to make the same
request.
A representative of the
engineering firm of Barrett,
Daffin, and Carlan presented
each Comissioner with a
brochure of his firm.
Commissioner Kennedy
asked Robert Nations of the
Florida Engineering Associ-
ates if there would be suffi-
cient work in four' small
counties to give one engineer a
full time job. His answer was,
"Probably not". He then said
that a small county such 'as
Gulf should negotiate each job
as to "fees" because engineer-
ing work is almost nothing for
re-paving where no right of
way surveying is necessary
and mapping is not required
as compared to a complete
new job. He said that a flat fee
based on the cost of the job
would cost much more than to
negotiate the fees for each job.
Nations then told the Board
that one of its members
requested him to report on,
what Calhoun County is doing.
He said that his firm repre-
sents Calhoun County and that
they had met with Farmers
Home Administration officials
last week and discussed finan-
cing a bond issue for road
construction. He said that
Farmers Home Administra-
tion was interested in such a
program and would loan their
funds at five percent interest.
One requirement was that the
County employ a Fiscal Agent
to handle the bond issue. He,
stated the amount of the issue
would be according to the
amount the County would pay
back; that a pay back of
$200,000.00 a year would equal
a bond issue of $3,373,819.16 at
five percent interest over 27
years. The Chairman said that
this matter is to be considered
at a special meeting, March
16, 1979 at 7:00 p.m.
Mrs. Inell Stutzman, Deputy
Tax Collector, discussed dis-
tribution of the County occu-
pational license. She stated
that the law directs the
distribution be made to each
municipality and to the Coun-
ty; that the municipality has
refused to accept its pro rata
share. The Attorney advised
that the Board was at this time


considering a resolution that
would take care of this pro-
blem. Upon motion by Com-
missioner Gortman, second by
Commissioner Kennedy, and
unanimous vote, Resolution


No. 79-4 was adopted. A copy
of the resolution is on file in
the Clerk's office.'
Honorable K.E. Murphy,
Sheriff, presented the Board a
check in the amount. of
$2,105.30, representing pay-
ment from the U.S. Govern-
ment for boarding Mexican
prisoners.
The Road Superintendent'
presented specifications for a
new tandem truck. The Board
had requested this informa-'
,tion at the last meeting.
Commissioner Gortman sta-
ted that the Road Department
is in urgent need of this type
tractor because the present
tractor cannot.pull the lowboy.
trailer with:the back-hoe
loaded. He:then recommended
that the Board advertise for a
new tractoiras per these
specification: that this-tractor
also be used topipull a 24 yard.
dump trailer, providing such a
trailercan also be purchased.
The Chairman suggested that
the. Board consider, the pur-
chase of a used tractor, with a
250 Cumming :disel which .the.
.State Department of Trans-
portation willtput up for sale
'within a few' days. Commis-
sioner Tankersley suggested.
the Commission inspect this,
used equipment before mak-
ing a decision,
Commissioner Gortm'an
asked if a date has been set
With other counties to discuss
plans for a bridge across the-
Apalachicola River to connect
SR 22 with Liberty County.
The Clerk reported that he
was requested to call the
Chairman of' the Board of
County Commissioners of
Bay, Liberty; and Wakulla
Counties to suggest that they
meet with Gulf County on this,
subject and to ask them what
dates they would like to hold
the meeting. He reported that
none of the Chairmans had
returned his call; therefore,
he wrote to each of them. A
copy of the letter was read to
the Board. Commissioner
Kennedy stated that this me-
thod of setting a 'meeting Was
not good because it would take
too long and every county
would probably want to meet
at a different time. He sug-
gested to set a meeting and
invite them to come.
Commissioner Tankersley
suggested that meal allow-
ances for the volunteer ambu-
lance crew be increased from
the present $2.50. He. was
informed' the 'law only. pro-
vides $2.50 and that amount
cannot be exceeded.
Commissioner Tankersley
urged' the Board to secure the
property in 'the southeast
corner of Section 21, Township
7 South, Range 11 West, where
U.S. 98 is nearest the Bay for a
boat landing. The Chairman
said that securing a site is the
problem that -has' prevented
the Board from constructing a
boat landing o6h the: bay or
gulf. The Attorney stated that
funds are available for this
purpose but the land owners
will not provide a site; that the
site now in question has been
under consideration before
and the owner refused to sell

tion. .
Commissioner Kennedy
suggested that the County
seek support from every other
County in West Florida to
have Florida,Power Corpora-
tion locate its new generating

of the two counties being
considered and the other
county is in South Florida. He
then made a motion to write
the letters, seconded by Com-
missioner Birmingham and it
was unanimously carried.

cussed the possibility of join-
ing the League of Cities for

tures.

sory panel members and by
representatives of the scienti-
fic community prior to sub-
mission to the public for
review.
Fisheries that will be affect-
ed by implementation of the
