Pose Danger Here

Tankersley

County Commissioner James Tankersley wants an open
season on alligators here in Gulf County. At the County
Commission meeting Tuesday night, Tankersley said the
animals are becoming a nuisance in the county. "You see
them everywhere and they're getting so plentiful Fm afraid
someone is going to get hurt by them", he said.

Tankersley asked the Board to request the Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission to call for an open season
for a time on the gators. "It won't do any good for them to
send two or three men down here to pick up some of the
gators. They're too plentiful for that."

Palmer Wednesday morning about the
Matter, he declined to make any
comment about the suspension.
When asked if his statements
carried in The Democrat were essen-
tially correct, he stated, "I have been
misquoted in at least two statements in
the Democrat and I will make no
further public statements at this time."
The state medical practices act,
paragraph 458.12(7) says the state
board may issue orders without 'a
hearing, to temporarily suspend the
license of a physician, pending a full
hearing. The suspension may be issued
prior to filing of a 'complaint'. The act


specifies that the suspended doctor
must be given a hearing within 60 days.
The suspension makes it illegal for
Dr. Anila Poonai to practice medicine
during the period her license is under
revocation. ,
CONSPIRACY
In talking.with Dr. Poonai in her
office Tuesday, she said she could not
add to a statement she made in the
Tallahassee Democrat,* where she
labeled the suspension a conspiracy.
She told the paper, "It surprises me the
board has stooped to such -levels as the -
hospital board". (The hospital board
removed her hospital privileges on
April 1).


She said she stood by her statement
to the paper that "They are conspiring
with the hospital to hurt me I think
they are desperate."

REFUTES CONSPIRACY
Hospital administrators Richard
Zyski told The Star Tuesday, "In spite
of the fact that a few months ago Anila
Poonai alleged that all the physicians in
the state were or would conspire
against her, it does not surprise me that
she has'charged theState of Florida,
through its Board of Medical Examin-
ers, with being a part of a great
conspiracy. It is more likely, however,
that the'BOME is merely doing what it


is mandated to do under Florida
Statute, that-is, to 'perform such duties
andpossess and exercise such powers,
relative to the protection of the public
health'
Zyski said he was aware of no great
conspiracy. "I believe the BOME is just.
doing its job as required by the State
legislature", Zyski said.
Zyski went on to say, "I am pleased
to find out that the BOME has acted
independently. I think their decision
supports the recent action taken by the
hospital board. It certainly indicates
bat the hospital board acted with just
caue. and in the interest of the
CoMmurfity.11

remained and the Corps wants
it removed.
The County has never ad-
mitted to doing the fill work,
but theCorps wants-them to
remove the dirt.
The dam affects about 200
yards of the creek, which
makes up in the swamp just
behind the earth dam.
In their letter Tuesday, the
Corps reminds them of the
several communications


made in the past on the matter
and the county's- answer in
each case.
Now, the Corps is, calling on
the county to tell them specifi-
cally what the county plans to
do about the matter and get it
done.
Attorney Billy Joe Rish was
absent'Tuesday night, so the
Commission decided to table
the letter until they could
confer with their attorney.

The proposed digging of a
pond at Sunland Recreation
Park sparked a heated discus-
sion among the Gulf County
Commissioners Tuesday
night.
The Board had promised
park operators they would dig
the pond in time for the
summer program at the park,
but a private contractor had
objected to one of the Board
members, saying he would do
the job for the amount the
county will be paid for the
work.
Commissioner James Gort-
man was the one to suggest
that the county contact park
officials to see if putting the
job up for bid in the private
sector would delay the plans
or hamper the summer -opera-
tion of. the park operation.
Com missioner Doug Bir-
mingham joined in with Gort-
man, saying, "If it won't

was needed more on road
work and "The little bit-of
money we are going to get for
the project won't'help us that
much." Gortman went on to
say the project would cost the
county money, considering,
lost time in road work.
When it all boiled down to
the voting, the Commission
agreed, three to two, to
continue with their agree-
ment.
Gortman emphasized, "I
.didn't want to get out of our
agreement, I just wanted to
see if it would hamperthe
park in any way, if they had
someone else do the job."
CORPSSCORES
The United States Corps of
Engineers scalded the Com-
mission with a letter Tuesday
night, asking them just what
they planned to do about
removing an earthern dike
from Brown's Creek.
A few years back, the creek
was filled with dirt to prevent


them to offer -the project to
private contractors.
Commissioner James Tank-
ersley took exception to Gort7
man and Birmingham, say-
ifig, "We promised to do this,
for them, and I think we
should stand by our promise.
If we had made this sugges-
tion a few weeks back, I would
be in favor of your idea. I think
you have waited too late to
make your suggestion and
going out for bid to private
contractors would delay the
project too long, now, with
summer here on us."
Tankserl ey was joined by
Leo Kennedy'and the chair-
man, Billy Branch.
Branch made the statement
Ahat the county had performed
several jobs for the park in the
past at no pay. 'Now, they are
going to pay us for this one,
and I think we should go ahead
and do it as we promised."
Gortman told the Board he
thought the county equipment


The matter ended when the
Commission decided they
should meet with the DOT
representative in person and
"talk about it". for a.while.


The Department -of Trans-
portation wants an acre of
land at Overstreet the County
owns. The county is reluctant
to sign it over to them hastily.
The DOT has offered to pay
for an acre of land the county
owns adjacent to the draw
bridge at Overstreet. They
want the acre of land for right
of way for a new bridge they
plan to build across the
Intracoastal Canal at Over-
street.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
wanted the county to sell the
acre to the DOT at the "going
price". The "going price" in
this instance seems to be
$3,600.
Commissioner James Gort-
man and Doug Birmingham
wanted to do some trading
with the DOT for another
piece of land "which could be
used for a park or boat landing
in the vicinity"-
Gortman made a motion,
which was voted down, that
the county give the state the
acre with a written agreement
that the county can get the
equivalent of the acre in the
future. Birmingham held out
by saying, "We should have a
concrete offer to make." He
wanted, the county to select
land to be traded for and
stipulate what it would be used
for, before releasing their


acre to the state in trade. place the bridge and wanted to set. a value on it.

For nearly a year, local Harbor Pilot
Dave Maddox has been trying to get some
action on dredging the channel into St. Joseph
.Bay.
He still hasn't been successful after many
attempts.
Only recently he took his plea to the
County Commission, pointing out that the
Corps of Engineers is willing to do the
dredging but the State Department of Natural
Resources is holding up the perr.nit.
The Commission agreed to help, if they
could, in securing the permit. This help has
generated a contact with the Lieutenant
Governor, Wayrje Mixson and the Depart-
ment head who signs the permits. Promises of
action from the Department has still not been
forthcoming. According to Commission c hair-
man Billy Branch, "They don't even call us
back when they say they -will."
Tuesday night, Maddox was back again
before the Commission asking if they had
received any communication concerning the
etting bad out there",
ter
addox said He stated again, that the time

impossibe to safely bring a laden ship into
Port St. Joe harbor.


Maddox had a map with him Tuesday
night, showing the bay and the channel. He
pointed out the shoaling areas to the
Commission and the areas where past
dredging had dumped spoil.
"The Corps of Engineers has dumped
spoil in these areas for years, with no ill
effects", Maddox said. "Now, the Bay waters
have been re-classified as Class 2 water, and
these spots are no longer acceptable -by the
state as spoil areas."
Branch said the only encouraging word
he could give from the state was that the
permitting p eople would come to Port St. Joe
to meet with the Commission and talk about
the matter. "They didn't give us a date, but
they said they would come", Branch said.
This didn't remove Maddox'concern over
the matter- He continued to hammer at the
fact that the port would soon be shut off to
shipping unless some action was taken.
Branch said he would personally be on the
telephone to Tallahassee Wednesday morning
trying to get a concrete answer to their
question. "I'll get with our attorney, Billy Joe
Rish, in the morning and we'll see what can
be done", Branch said.
In the meantime, the channel and channel
entrance continue to shoal with shifting sand.

State Should Come


to Compromise


The State of Florida and the
State of Georgia are finally taking
-,a solid step toward solving the
controversy over who will control
'the Apalachicola River.
Georgia and Alabama want a
"low level, spill-over dam put on
S .the Apalachicola near Blounts-
-town, to maintain a certain depth
at a particularly hazardous spot in
the river during times of low
water. The Corps has said the
tumbler dam would be constructed
so as to maintain nine feet in the
channel, which would read about
,; -jfour to five feet on the gauge at
- Blountstown.
SDuring times when the river
was a level of four feet or above,
the tumbler dam. would have no
S4 effect on the level of the water in
C the river. During times of low
9 water, it would maintain the four
feet above the dam while the level
below would rise and fall normally
S ith the dam having no effect on
this water action.

Should Pay



The members of the State
Legislature have been talking
about giving themselves a raise.
S Oh, you say, they just had one
S back in 1970? So they did, and so
did everybody else. The only prob-
lem is that everyone else has had
several more raises since that
Ji me.
If service in the Legislature
was still only a part time activity,
we'd. be in favor of leaving the
S salary as it is now. I saw where
one of the writers said the law-
makers were now making some-
thing like $4,000 a month, dividing

rolled into the building after it
was finished. Gaskin's report
says the manufacturer now
says he will come in once
again and stretch the carpet
properly, if the county will
remove the furniture from the
library before they make the
repairs.
"If it puckered before on'
moving in furniture, how will
we get it back in without
puckering the carpet?" Com-
missioner Birmingham asked.
After considerable discus-


ment of Natural Resources made
a statement which would preclude
the dam having any effect on the
seafood production at Apalachi-
cola. He said all nutrients which
feed the animals and organisms in
Apalachicola Bay come from up-
river from within 25 miles of the
Bay. This is a long way south of
the proposed tumbler dam.
If the Corps had in mind
constructing a dam near Blounts-
town similar to the one at Chatta-
hoochee or one which would re-
strict the water flow below the
dam, we would be strong against
it.
Since the dam would allow
free flow of the river and environ-
mentalists have said, in effect, it
would not affect the food chain in
Apalachicola Bay, we think the
two states should get together and
talk about the matter, trying to
reach a solution which would
serve the needs of both states..
Both sides of the state line
have a legitimate argument in
their favor and should be able to
come to a viable compromise.

they had open to them.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission:
-Agreed to call for bids for
a rotary tiller, a broom
sweeper and sand spreader
for use in road paving in the
county.
-Heard a comment from
ambulance squad chief Da-
vid Horton who said, "We
don't want pay for our ser-
vices, but what with the gas
situation like it is, we would
appreciate it if the county
would consider helping the
members with their travel
expenses.


sion on the matter, hiirming-
ham made a motion that the
county remove the furniture
for re-stretching of the carpet,
provided the manufacturer
will replace the carpet and
pay the county for moving the
furniture in and out, if it
puckers again. "This time, get
him to put his name on this
agreement", Birmingham
said.
The Commissioners doubted
the manufacturer would sign
such an agreement, but felt

LETTERS

... to the Editor


Dear Editor:
Taxes are a lot like the
weather. Everyone talks a
lot about them, but nobody
ever does anything about
them. Recently, we have
been hearing a lot of noisy
promises that the current
legislative session will pro-
duce results in tax reform.
Usually, after the dust from
all the political hullabaloo
has settled, we see very
little in the form of substan-
tive relief, despite all pro-
mises to the contrary.
The legislative places the
burden for the administra-

No Flood

Insurance

Dear Wesley:
While I am not a direct
victim of the catastrophe
which hit Jackson, Miss. this
past weekend in the indula-
tion of the flood, I did have
a chance to observe, first
hand its effect on the popu-
lance involved.
This is probably one of the
worst things that has hap-
pened to Jackson since the
massive tornado which hit
back in the early 60's; but
two things became VERY
apparent to the people of
Jackson, and I think, worth
while for passing on to the
populance of Port St. Joe
and Gulf County.
First, Jackson is a lot like
St. Joe in that when a
disaster hits or when a per-
son is in trouble, other peo-
ple, total strangers, rush
forth to help their fellow
man. St. Joe has ALWAYS
been like this, and may it
always continue to be so.
I'm proud of St. Joe for that
alone!
Second, out of a population
of 250,000 people in Jackson,
Mississippi, a place where
National Flood Insurance
was available, ONLY 1,400
people had it! And with (at,
present) 25,000- families
being affected, that is five
and one half percent of
those who'now needed it so
badly. Anid yet, no one
thought it 'could happen in
Jackson. And, while the poor
did receive much damage to
their homes by far the mid-
dle class and the upper
middle class populance te-
ceived the greatest amount
of damage in total losses,
never to be replaced.
The main .reason for this
letter is to BEG if neces-
sary, the people of St. Joe
and Gulf County to look into
National Flood Insurance.
It's so cheap, that most any-
one can afford it, 25 cents
per hundred and 35 cents
per hundred on contents
from any reliable insurance
agency in St. Joe or Gulf
County. And FREE informa-
tion about the insurance is
available to anyone who
calls 1-800-424-8872 just for
the asking. Don't put this
off. It could happen to St.
Joe. It happened once before
so history so fondly dictates.
Respectfully,
Ed Eells


getting the same kind of
results, or lack of results.
We cannot, however, ever
stop trying to find people
who will be responsive to
the wants and needs of the
people. The system is not
perfect, but it can work if a
majority of the citizenry will
become involved.
There are a number of
ideas being currently tossed
about by the legislature. The
governor would like to roll
the village back to a fixed
ceiling. Others would prefer

pathetic attitude toward the
taxpayer but are hamstrung
by statutory dictates from
the legislature.
At present, the main legis-
lative priority seems to be
an increase of their own
salaries over the meager
$4,000.00 .per moifth which
they are now recieving. That
amount, it seems, does not
permit them to live in Tal-
lahassee in the style to
which they have grown ac-
customed.
It has become very easy

ALL OF US remembered that gasoline is
now costing from 75c to 80c per gallon and
that Sunday afternoon drive is getting more
and more expensive.

I gave up that Sunday afternoon drive
several months ago. Rather than get out and
waste energy (including mine) driving around
looking at the countryside, I do all that
during the week then take a nap on Sunday
afternoon, while I'm "watching" the football
game, the basketball game, the baseball
game or golf. Sitting there "watching" with
my eyes closed is a very relaxing 'type of
exercise. I sometimes "play" two games
during an afternoon and feel invigorated when

the final whistle sounds.
Now that gas is rapidly approaching the
touted $1.00 per gallon, I'll probably have that
uncontrollable urge slap me in the back and
give me the fidgets on Sunday afternoon.
There's nothing like something costing a lot of
money to make you desire it.

I'M GLAD TO SEE the State of Florida is
right on the ball.
They're protecting my interest and your
interest. They are trying to see that we don't
get cheated.
Saturday I picked up the paper and read
where the State of Florida has come down on
a certain manufacturer of charcoal. The
company was cheating on the packing of its
10-pound bags. The state investigated some
300 of the 10-pound bags of charcoal and
found out that 10 of them were at least a half
pound shy.
Heavens to Betsy! What some people
won't do to make money! They even stoop to
charcoal cheating!
I'm glad to find the state right on top of
this one. I would have been hard put to figure
out myself that I wasn't getting as much

charcoal for my money from this particular 4
brand as I did from other brands. The state
has protected me.
It's nice to know that with such other
lesser projects before them such as coming
up with a permit to dredge Port St. Joe T
harbor, figuring out a way to make the
promised tax relief really tax relief and not
tax re-distribution, trying to get the road
paved between here and Wewahitchka and
other mundane matters didn't get in the way
of checking the weight of my favorite
charcoal.
I feel secure.

I'M ALSO RELIEVED that a Legislative
committee has agreed on abolishment of
further use of the electric chair to execute
criminals. If their suggestion is followed, we
will, in the future, just give them a shot and
they will go peacefully to sleep .
permanently.
I don't think this was really the point of
the bleeding hearts who are trying to overrule
capital punishment. I think they want us to
quit killing murderers, rapists, etc., and not
just figure out another way to kill them.
John Spenkelink himself has not endorsed
the shot rather than the shock. He wants the
state to allow him to live rather than to die.
Spenkelink is now truly sorry he did the
killing he was convicted to die for. No doubt
the victim is sorry also. Since both sides are
sorry, perhaps the clemency board will listen
with favor to Spenkelink.
I don't think he or others are any mot-4
interested in dying by a shot than they are b#

SCounty Revises List of Roads for Paving Program


In last week's issue of The Star,
a story was printed concerning a
proposed bond issue for paving cer-
tain roads throughout the county in a
single paving program. The list of
roads listed was a tentative list,
drawn up by the County Commission,
taken from the County paving prior-
ity list.
Since the list, printed last week,
was drawn up, the Commission has
met again and re-shuffled their pro-
gram, changing priorities on certain
roads and re-arranging their propos-
ed program. Under the new program
proposal, some of the streets will be
paved with the bond issue, some in
the current year's budget of state
money, and some from future reve-
S nues received annually from the
) Department of Transportation from
the gasoline tax.


The list below is the new priority
list for the bonded paving program.
The only exceptions are that the
Howard Creek Road will be paved
this year from current DOT funds to
be received,, along with re-surfacing
of the Oak Grove streets. The Oak

strengthened with might by-
his Spirit in the inner man;
(V-17) That Christ may
dwell in your hearts by
faith; that ye, being rooted
and grounded in 'love,
(V-18) May be able to
comprehend with all saints
what is breadth, and length,
and depth, and height;
(V-19) And to know- the
love of Christ, which passeth
knowledge, that ye might be
filled with all the fullness of
God."
This ,passage belongs to

ed with power by His spirit

St. Joe Singers Record Their


Second Album at Studio Four,


On April 17, the St. Joe
Singers recorded their se-
cond record album in two
years at Studio 4 in Dothan,
Alabama. This years album,
"In The Spotlight" features
outstanding individual per-
formances by each of the
members, and group' num-
bers of the favorite songs of


Port St. Joe High School.
The St. Joe Singers have
enjoyed a great amount of
success this year. In October
the singers received a super-
ior rating at the National
Peanut Festival and al-
though they received an ex-
cellent rating at District
Festival, their score was not


indicative of their perform-
ance.
The Singers wish to thank
all of the people who have
supported them in their ef-
fort to produce this record.
Thanks to you, our friends
in St. Joe, the singers have
been given an opportunity to
fulfill a lifetime dream.

One of the highlights of
the DAR year was the pro-
gram on Good Citizenship
presented last Wednesday,
April 18, at the regular
meeting of St. Joseph Bay
Chapter Daughters of the
American Revolution, by
Eda Ruth Taylor. The meet-
ing was held at the Garden
Center and the luncheon was
served by the Port St. Joe
Garden Club. Hostesses were
Mrs. Nobie Stone, Mrs. W.
J. Weathington, and Mrs. B.
R. Gibson, Sr.
Mrs. Taylor explained that
the purpose of the Good
Citizens Committee is to
stress the qualities of good
citizenship among senior
high school students. Each
year a contest is held and is
open to senior boys and
girls. Winners are selected
for outstanding qualities of
leadership ability, dependa-
bility, service and patriot-
ism, and are then entered in
the state DAR contest.
St. Joseph Bay has three
winners: Miss Virginia Al-
len, Apalachicola High
School; Miss Paula Gaskin,
Wewahitchka High School;
and Miss Yvonne Guilford,
Port St. Joe High school.
Attending the meeting with
their daughters were Mrs.
Harley Allen, Mrs. Rudy
Gaskin, Jr., and Mrs. Carl
Guilford, who were given the
honor of pinning the awards
on the deserving young la-
dies.
Virginia Allen, who plans
to attend the University of
Florida, is band president in

been elected to the Society
of Distinguished High School
students and is listed in
"Who's Who Among Ameri-
can High School Students".
She plans to attend Gulf
Coast Community College.
Mrs. Stone's Civil Defense
report was based on Phyllis
Schaffley's article, "Anti-se-
curity Vigilantes" in which
she says that preventing dis-
ease is better than curing
disease 'and that preventing
crime is even more worth-
while than punishing crime;
that most Americans do not
realize that the hands of the
police are tied, due to the
work of anti-vigilante
groups.
Since the abolishment of
the House Committee on In-
ternal Security, no one is
barred from federal employ-
ment because of member-
ship in any of these organi-
zations: the U.S. Communist
Party, the American Nazi
Party, the Ku Klux Klan,
the Maoists, the Trotskyites,
the Prairie Fire Organiza-
tion, the Puerto Rican ,So-
cialist Party, or .the Pale-
tine Liberation Organization.
Mrs. Schaffley's advice to
American citizens is to per-


suade U.S. Congressmen to
pledge to co-sponsor Con-
gressman John Ashbrook's
and Larry McDonald's reso-
lution to reestablish the
House Committee on Intern-
al Security. Currently there
are 177 co-sponsors. 218
more are needed.
Mrs. Thomas Owens, re-
gent, announced that June 14
is Flag Day, and that Mrs.


Philip McLeod is Junior
Chairman and Chairman of
Advertising.
The May meeting of the
chapter was announced for
May 16. It will be held at
the beach house of Mrs.
Paul Fensom at 5:00 p.m.
This is to be a covered dish
affair, and each member is
to bring a dish and a dona-
tion for DAR.

Miss Jeri


Sunited In
The wedding ceremony unit-
ing Jaritza Ann Rich and
Donald C. Asheraft was cele-
brated on March 31st in the p
sanctuary of the First Baptist r
Church of Port St. Joe. Dou- s
ble-ring vows were said at I
three o'clock in the afternoon t
with the Rev. Billy E. Heaton 6
officiating.
The church altar was adorn-
ed with two nine-branch can- l:
.dle arches which stood at l
either side of the traditional P
wedding arch. Palm branches a
of woodwardia fern entwined
the arch and matching can- c
delabrum. Antique white c
wicker baskets displayed ele- s
gant arrangements of apricot,
yellow and white gladioli, iris, o
) carnations, gypsophilia and g
jade interspersed with spring- a
erie fern. The lower level of w
the altar was flanked on either a
side by candelabra and simi- c
lar floral arrangements. f
A single white bow cradled w
in arrangements of white s
gladioli on a background of p
jade and mixed greenery high- a
+ lighted each of the sanctuary M
windows. The mothers' pew I
was distinguished at both b
aisles by tall candle trees, ,g
which held single lighted
tapers. The traditional unity h
candle was placed in the a
center of the front aisle. The w
two candles representing the I
bride and groom were lit by A
the bride's mother and the b
groom's brother at the begin- w
ning of the ceremony. s
Pre-nuptial music was pro- R
vided by Mrs. Emmett Daniell
at the organ. A selection of t
classical and traditional melo- c
dies was chosen by the bride. I
Billy.Rich, Jr., brother of the s
bride, sang "Whither Thou v
.; Goest" and "The Wedding c
j Song", accompanied by Miss g
F Kimmy Weech.
The bride ascended the aisle u
Zi on her father's arm, and was F
'i radiantly dressed in a family
heirloom gown. The gown
was designed with formal i
V length white chiffon with re- b
i embroidered alencon lace. a
j The solid lace bodice was o
highlighted by a scalloped o
: neckline bordered with seed
j!, pearls. Triple-tiered butter- w
: fly sleeves floated softly to w
i wrist lengtf. The full circular a
skirt fell from an empire b
; waistline and extended into y
i. cathedral length. The head-
piece was of matching chif- e
fon layered on a wide-brimm a
ed summer hat covered with -o
alencon lace which fell to l,
cathedral length. Soft illusion la
netting bordered with lace t
created a veil which also fell e
to cathedral length to match fi
the train of the dress. The n
train was attended by Master s,
David Rich, cousin of the s
bride. b
To complete the traditional e
saying, "Something old, some- w
thing new, something borrow- b
ed, and something blue", the
bride chose to carry a hand- M
crocheted handkerchief from C
her grandmother, the late f,
Mrs. Clifford Tharpe, Sr.; a e
gold necklace, a gift from the e
groom; her mother's pearl m
earrings and the traditional w
blue garter. o
She carried a cascade of fl
White silk gardenias, rose- .c
*( buds, and peach blossoms G
encircled with gypsophilia,
chantilly lace and satin h
streamers. The bride also B
carried a white wedding Bible s
j covered with satin and chan- h
Stilly lace, which she gave with A
a kiss to her mother as she H
ascended the aisle. g
The bride's mother wore a
knee length summer dress of
chiffon in a floral pattern of
peach and ivory. She wore a M
double cymbidium orchid cor- a
: sage. The bride's grand- F
mother, Mrs. E. J. Rich, chose A
a two-piece knee length dress
in an apricot shade. She also
..wore a cymbidium orchid cor-
sage.
Mrs. Harold B. Keels, aunt
of the bride, attended her
niece as matron of honor. Her
gown was made of sand-color-
ed chiffon over satin. The
scooped neckline fashioned a
ruffled cape of chiffon. A full
skrit fell from an empire

In State

Contest

The teen talent group of
the First Pentecostal Holi-
ness Church on Garrison
Avenue won second runner
up in vocal ensemble at
state competition in St. Au-
gustine.
The group was accompan-
ied by their pianist, Mrs. Jo
O'Barr, their director, Mrs.
Betty Barr, and chaperones,
Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Wes-
ter.
The group made their per-
formance on Saturday morn-
ing. They sang "God's Won-
derful People". The church
is very proud of the youth
because they have only been
singing together for two
months.

"Never injure a friend, even
in jest." Cicero


nate to have two different
groups of volunteers working
in our schools. This year for
the first timp we have adult
volunteers devoting, some of
their time on a regular basis
as school volunteers.
Juniors and seniors from
the two county high schools
have been providing volun-
teer services to the county's
elementary schools for the
past two years. These volun-
teers provide services which
relieves the teacher of many
housekeeping duties, there-
by, giving the teachers more
time to teach.
Probably the greatest ser-
vice provided through the
volunteer program is assist-
ing individual students or
small groups who have pro-
blems in school. They can
assist by supervising activi-
ties, movement from one
activity to another and on-
the playground. Many volun-
teers type, file, assist with
art, music, and by using
their many talents to enrich
the student's lives.
Volunteers will clock more
than 10,000 volunteer hours
in Gulf County classrooms
by the end of this school
year.

Monday Night Mixed League
The Monday Night Mixed
League met on April 23rd with
the following results:
Earley's Hardware sewed
up first place honors by
winning four games from
Highland View Gulf on lanes
one and two. Johnny Linton
rolled a nice 212 game and a
540 series and Sandra Brock
added a 413 series for the
Hardware team. Ronald Laur-
imore and Aline York rolled
series of 376 and 374 respect-
ively.
St. Joe Bar and Hickory
House met on lanes three and
four and each team came
away with two games each.
Harry Lowry rolled a 506
series and a 203 game and A.
J. Cunningham added a 431

bined to pace the Hickory
House with series of 454 and

Last Saturday, a caravan
of assorted vehicles headed
toward Torreya State Park.
In the lead was Billy Joe
Richards, cubmaster for
Troop 47.
Twenty five boys plus
their leaders spent the day
in the park enjoying the
outdoors.
The boys enjoyed hiking
and exploring the nature
trails as well as other activi-
ties the boys 'participated in.
The Cubs beat the' men in
tug-of-war, but Billy Joe
Richards won the uphill
race. It's debatable who en-

Cubs or the adults.

Yes, mortgage money is only Q of the good things:
about Jim Walter ... you don t need it!M. There are
many, many other good things but, since the scarcity
and cost of mortgage money is in the news almost
every day, we know it is especially important to you.
So, here are some encouraging facts about mortgage
financing.

First of all. Jim Walter has PLENTY of mortgage financ-
ing dollars to build new homes for his customers. In
addition, and this is of vital importance to you, when
Jim Walter provides mortgage financing there are NO
closing costs and NO "points" to inflate the cost to you.
You'll also be happy to know that there is no "third
party" red tape or delay. Credit approval is almost
INSTANT, instead of the usual weeks or even months.
so that construction can begin as soon as possible.

When you choose Jim Walter as your builder. we'll
finish your home to almost any stage. from the shell up
to 90% complete. You tell us where to stop, then add
BONUS SAVINGS by doing some or all of the inside
finishing. Do it yourself! Make it a family project! Or
maybe you have friends and neighbors who can help
you with the more difficult jobs. But the more you can
do for yourself, the more money you'll save. It's the Jim
Walter way for you to have more home for less money
... and it works!

So, if you own property and want to build a new home
with payments you can afford, come to where the
money is. Come to where you can choose from more
than 20 low qost homes. Come to where you can cut
normal building costs simply by doing some of your
own inside finish work. Come to where you can get
more home for less money. Come to Jim Walter Homes
for complete information and the cost of building on
your property. Call. stop by. or send the coupon to our
nearest display park. Let's talk today!!! WE DO IT

proud of. This was also the
second field trip the ninth

were injured but some. were
taken to a hospital in Panama
City and later released after
assurance of no serious injury,
but their bus driver wasn't
quite so fortunate and re-
mained in the hospital.
Report cards will be issued
once again to all students for
the fifth six weeks tomorrow.
The past six weeks has been
filled with several holidays for
students and now it's time to
find out whether or not this
affected their grade averages.

Red Cross Setting


Up System for


Blood Donations


Jim Blount, Regional Rep-
resentative of the American
Red Cross blood program,
Mobile, was in Port St. Joe
Thursday to set up a system
of providing whole blood for
the Municipal Hospital in an
exchange basis with Red
Cross.
Blount said the Red Cross
has recently set up a new
region for handling blood,
named the Gulf States Re-
gion, of which Gulf County
is a part. The region, served
from Mobile, Alabama, en-
compasses 33 counties in
-north Florida, south Ala-
bama and south Georgia.
The Red Cross is currently
furnishing this region with
an average of 250 units of
blood each day, five days a
week. "What we don't col-
lect within the region, we
call in from other regions
throughout the United
States", Blount said.


-Star photo Blount said Red Cross fur-
nishes blood services to the
majority of hospitals over
the nation. There are 60,
hospitals in the Gulf States
Region. He said, "We per-
form. this service on a cost
basis, since it would be
economically impossible for.
most hospitals to operate
i. their own blood program."
A. & He said it- would cost a
X AF hospital "millions" to get
S" into the blood handling busi-
4 ness on their own. "That's
what makes our program so
attractive, especially to
J small hospitals".


are: Trina Houston, Ginger Alien, Aileen
Boatwright, Cheryl Boatwright, Barbara
Paul and Mimi Patterson. Standing, left to
right: Bill Martina, coach, Janice Martina,
Monica Lemieux, Burnell Martina, Marcia
Johnson, Catherine Scott, Susan Butler,
Stephanie Shiver and Karen Langley.


Blount said it would be
necessary for Gulf County to
supply 550 units of blood
each. year to Red Cross to
maintain its service. He said
there is no charge to the
patient for the blood, but
'there is a charged made for
handling, processing and col--
lectirig, which runs approx-.
imately $27.00 per unit.
While he was here in Port
St. Joe last Thursday, the
Red cross representative


met with industry, hospital
and civic representatives to
set up a program of collect-.
ing blood. The Mobile office
would send its blood unit
here to Gulf County to col-
lect blood from donors.
"Right now we are looking
for local individuals who
would want to volunteer
their services in the pro-
gram", Blount said. "This is
program is operated locally
with volunteers, who set up
blood donation days, keep up
with donors, etc.", Blount
said. Temporarily, Tracy
Pierce, hospital technician,
is heading up the program
and is the contact point for
those who want to help with
the service.

Surtian. stays.


The surface-applied soybean herbicide that will survive a soggy summer.


Staying power. Power enough to control tough
annual grasses and weeds like seedling johnsongrass,
lambsquarters and pigweed ... clean through combining.
That's Surflan. That's control. Full season control you
can't get from other surface-applied soybean herbicides.
Especially in Alabama and Florida where soybean growers can
usually count on a wet year. Surflan won't leach out. It latches on
to soil particles to stay on the job... 'til your beans are in the bin.
Best of all, Surflan is probably labeled to tank-mix
with the broadleaf herbicide you're using now. Get
Surflan from your farm chemical supplier.
