Part of a controversy which has
been raging in Port St. Joe for the past
) seven months will be settled next
$ Tuesday, when electors go to the polls
in the annual election, to choose three
members to the City Commission.
What started as a: disagreement
between a local doctor, Dr. P. V. Poonai
and the hospital board, which is made
up of members of the City Commission
has developed into a full-scale political
squabble. The disagreement has de-
"agenerated to the point where supporters
Vof the doctor have worked up a recall
election petition for two of the members
of the Commission who will be on the
ballot next Tuesday. Two other Com-
mission members, not up for election
this year, are also named on the recall
petition.
THE LINE-UP
The line-up for Tuesday's contest
includes Mayor-Commissioner Frank
Pate facing opposition from Dr. Poonai.
Pate has been Mayor-Commissioner of
the City for the past eight years, facing
.opposition for re-election only one other

HEAVY TURN-OUT EXPECTED
One of the heaviest turn-outs in the
history of local elections is expected to
go to the polls on Tuesday, Avith a large
percentage of the City's 2,800 electors
expected to pull the voting machine
levers.
Interest in the contest has been
growing daily for the past month and is
increasing daily as the voting day
draws nearer.
One of the main points of interest in
the election is the recall petition, which
has now been ratified and awaits a
decision by the Circuit Judge as to
whether the petition is a legal document
and set a date for the election.
Included on the recall petition,
are Pate and Ramsey, who will face the
voters Tuesday and Commissioners
James B. Roberts and John Robert
Smith, who face the electorate next
year.


Sylvachem

Sylvachem Corporation pre-
'gented the City a report
w.uesday nights, at theeregular
meeting of the Commission,
stating that they were now
just above the allowable
amount of input to the Waste-
water Treatment plant and
would be under their limits by
December of this year on two
items and by April 1, 1980 on
the third violation.
Sylvachem had been noti-
fied by the City back in.
December of last year that
they were exceeding their
limits on BOD, total suspend-
ed solids and volume flow and
that they would have to make
some adjustments to come
within the limits of the tripar-
tite agreement as set up by the
Environmental Protection
Agency.
,Dr. Dick Jones, of the
engineering firm of Jones,
Edmunds and Associates, told
the Commission that Sylva-
-chem had made and was
making more in-plant modifi-
cations to come within the
1 prescribed limits in all three
Areas.
In his report to the Commis-
sion Tuesday night, Dr. Jones
said the plant had reduced its
4BOD count from a monthly
'average of 29,000 back in
December to the present
average of 4,800. This is just
slightly above the allowable
limits for the plant.
Jones said total suspended
solids input had been reduced
from an average count of
24,000 in December to 2,900 in
AprV of this year. This count,
too, is still slightly above the
limits allowed.

Interviewing
The Port St. Joe Port
Authority will meet at 10 a.m.,
Tuesday, May 8 at the fire
,station to interview an engin-
eering firm who has filed an
application to be employed as
design engineers for the new
port.
George Tapper, chairman of
the Port Authority will be in
Washington, D.C., next Tues-
day and Wednesday, meeting
with Farmers Home Adminis-
tration and Economic Devel-
opment Administration and
HUD officials; along with the
Florida delegation in refer-
&ce to the Authority's appli-
Tation for a construction loan.
Port Authority has filed
an application for a loan with
FHA for $28 million to begin
construction.


WWP plant has been reduced
from 570 million gallons per
day-in December to 380 million-
gallons per day in April.
This is a total reduction of 83
percent in this time period",
Jones said. "The second phase
of our program will have us
consistently under the limits
in BOD by April of next year
and under the limits in the
other two categories by De-
cember of this year.
The Environmental Protec-
tion Agency has also been on
Sylvachem about their vol-
ume. and asked the City to
report to the government
agency as to the progress they
have made thus far.
LEASE BUILDING
The Commission approved
a five year lease of a building
at the Washington Recreation
Center site for use by the Gulf
County Association for Re-
.tarded Citizens.
The lease will run for a five
year period, with option to
re-new for an additional five
years. The City made' the*
building available in the lease
at no charge.
The leased building was one
of the former school buildings
which -had not yet been
renovated under the plan to
develop the school site into a
recreation site. The building
was renovated by the GARC
with the understanding they
could use it free of charge for
a period of time.
REQUEST STATE HELP
The. City will have state
monitors from the State Sup-
ervisor of Elections office in
attendance at the municipal
election, scheduled for Tues-
day of next week.
In view of the hotly contest-
ed issue before the electorate
on Tuesday, the Commission'
decided to call on the Elec-
tions Office for a monitor to
oversee the balloting and see
that everything is done strict-
ly according to state law.
SRepresentatives from the
state office will be on the site
all day long next Tuesday and
will supervise every phase of
the election.
ROOFING BIDS
After continued efforts to
patch and stop leaks in the
roofs of the STAC House and
the Centennial Building, to no
avail, the board accepted bids
Tuesday night on replacing
the roofs of the two buildings.
The bids ran all the way
from $20,649.00 to $33,205.00.
The five bids received were
held by the Commission until
the next meeting.

The Florida Board of Medical Examiners
filed a list of seven charges against Dr. Anila
Poonai, a Port St. Joe gynecologist, in
Tallahassee last Thursday. The charges
followed a re-instatement of Dr. Poonai's
license to practice medicine in Florida, which
had been removed only six days earlier.
In filing the charges, which must be
answered by Dr. Poonai within 20 days, the
Board said the license was re-instated
because Dr. Poonai's privileges to practice in
a hospital had been removed. She had
privileges in Port St. Joe's Municipal Hospital
until April 15, when they were removed upon
the advice of two medical panels who had
heard evidence against her practice methods.
Terry Davis, chief investigator for the
Board of Examiners told The Star Thursday,
"We didn't feel it necessary to continue with
the license suspension, since Dr. Poonai no
longer has hospital privileges."
Davis said last Thursday, "The issuance
of a complaint will set in motion the
necessary procedures leading to an evidenti-
ary hearing in this matter."
The complaint issued against Dr. Anila
Poonai charged her with seven specific
charges in the complaint.
Signed by Dr. George S. Palmer, M.D.,
director of the Medical Examiners, the
complaint listed the following counts against
Dr. Poonai:
Count I-"While Chief of Obstetrics and
Gynecology at Municipal Hospital of Port St.
Joe you knowingly failed to perform an
emergency medical procedure on a patient,
when requested with full knowledge that
failing to do so would require a transfer of a
patient under circumstances medically
known to greatly endanger the life of said
patient and her unborn child."
Count 2-"You did willfully make


deceptive, untrue or fraudulent representa-
tions, commit unprofessional conduct, prac-
tices harmful to the public ... You performed
an unnecessary medical procedure on a
patient. falsified the final diagnosis on the
patient's summary sheet, permanently ster-
"ilizied a 26-y6ar-old female, destroyed a viable
four-six week old embryo."
Count 3-"You performed a medical
procedure against the wishes of a patient by
sterilizing the patient, a 24-year-old female..
Count 4-"Performed an elective medical
procedure against strong indications to the
contrary in the patient's medical history by
performing an anterior colporrhapy on a
70-year-old patient with a history of diabetes,
congestive heart failure, pacemaker inser-
tions, thereby gravely and unnecessarily
endangering the life of the patient."
Count 5--"You misdiagnosed a medical
condition and performed an unnecessary
medical procedure and falsified the final
diagnosis on the patient's summary sheet,
which resulted in the permanent sterilization
of a 29-year-old patient.
Count 6-"You negligently prescribed a
substance that was contraindicated by the
patient's history and in amounts greatly
exceeding medically recognized dosage level
and you further performed an unnecessary
medical procedure that was contraindicated
by the patient's medical history.
Count 8-"Your privileges to practice
medicine on the staff of Municipal Hospital of
Port St. Joe were revoked by the Board of
Trustees of said hospital, an organized
medical staff, for unprofessional conduct, and
practices harmful to the public."
Dr. Poonai has charged that the counts
against her are the result of a conspiracy
between the hospital and the Board of
Examiners.

HUD Interested

In Port, Housing
In a telephone conversation
with George G. Tapper yester-
day, Patrick Patterson, Re-
gional Director of HUD, in
Atlanta, Ga., discussed the
port project with Tapper,
saying he was very interested
in it as it would create a great
number of jobs for hard core
unemployed in the area.
Patrick said that with devel-
opment of the port, HUD
would be interested in block
grant money for the area to
provide improved housing for
the employees.
Patrick said he would be in
Port St. Joe on Wednesday,
May 18 to look over the
proposed port site, and Port
St. Joe in general.


dents will be held at the three
Gulf County elementary
schools next Friday, May 11
from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
'This registration is for stu-
dents entering Gulf County
public schools for the 1979-80
school year.
Kindergarten students en-
rolling for the fall term must
be five years old on or before
January 1, 1980. First grade
students who have not attend-
ed kindergarten in public
school must be six years of
age on or before January 1,
1980. Parents are required to
present an approved proof-
of-age for each child to be

These innoculations are avail-
able through the Gulf County
Health Department.


Filling Up Drain Ditch

St. Joe Paper Company began filling in a ditch near the
city limits here in Port St. Joe this week. The ditch, located


near the city limits on Garrison Avenue, has served in the
past as a main drainage artery for the southern edge of the
city. Now, other drain canals carry off excess water and the
ditch is no longer in use. For the past few years, the 'only
purpose the ditch has served was to hold stagnant water for
the breeding of mosquitoes. -Star pnoto


Coldewey, seeking election to his sixth
term on the Board, is opposed by a
new-comer to the City and to City
politics. Walter K. Johnson, a student at
Gulf Coast Community College, is,
Coldewey's opponent.
An unusual twist in this race is that
Johnson has almost the same name as
Walter F. Johnson, a long-time resident
of Seventh Street, who has been an
employee with the Apalachicola Nor-
thern Railroad for many years. "I'm
not running for anything", Walter F.
Johnson says, and took an advertise-
ment out in this week's issue of The Star
to state this fact. "People are getting
me confused with Walter K. Johnson",
he said.
In the third race, Wesley R.
Ramsey is going for his third term
against Ollie Stutzman, a local building
contractor. Stutzman is also making his
initial bid into City politics.

after a person or a situation in a

change. a situation. All of this is
going on in the guise of reporting
the news.
It's a simple matter to leave
out a statement here or insert a
partial statement there to make a
Point. But such an addition or
deletion can, in many instances,
change the whole matter of what
is being reported.
In other words, so many of.
our national writers .have become
little more than propaganda sheets
and hrve departed from their first
duty to report the news as it
happened.
Lately, we see more and more
papers using their front pages to

their place, but should not be
disguised as news.
If the Supreme Court must
resort to passing rulings to protect
a basic freedom 'or keep it from

attack against the freedom by
irresponsible newsmen.

Rep. Tom McPherson of Fort
Lauderdale. He says past actions
have proven that 18-year-olds can-
not handle the responsibility of
making the drinking decision for
themselves.
There are many above age 18,
all the way to 100 who also cannot
handle that decision.
Joseph Flanagan, president of
a big liquor chain says, "I don't
think it's a good bill. I don't think
it can be enforced."
We think it's a good bill, and
it was enforced when it was a
law, back before the Legislature,
in its non-wisdom, decided that if
a young man was old enough to
fight, he was old enough to drink.
It's also debatable whether or not
a person ever gets old enough to
know when to fight.

(Verse 2) "But his delight is
in the law of the Lord; and in
his law doth he meditate day
and night."
(Verse 3) "And he shall be
like a tree planted by the
rivers of water, that bringeth
forth his fruit in, his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall
prosper."
There is no lack of the
teaching of confidence in the
Bible. Every promise in God's
Word teaches confidence to
the Christian. The scripture in
Psalm 1:1-2 tells us that
"Blessed is the Christian
whose delight is in the law
(teaching) of the Lord." And
Verse three quickly goes on to
say that person will be like a
tree planted by the river
(grounded in the Word of God,
the Bible).
The person grounded in


God, having confidence in
God, will be fruitful, and
healthy ("his leaf shall not
wither"). Then God adds a
most confidence building

Officials Dedicated Film Showing


Dear Wesley,
From the President of the
United States to the lowest
elected official, it has gotten to
be fun to kick somebody
around. We all know that we
have had some bad people in
public office at all levels, from
the very beginning of our
country.
It is my judgment that
throughout time the good,
dedicated public officials have
far outnumbered those who
were rotten. It is my opinion
that this City has been well
blessed, not only with mater-
ial goods, but by dedicated


leaders who have given of
their time in trying to make
this a better place for all of us.
I want to personally go on
record as thanking our City
Commissioners for the great
job they have done for this
community, and I wish them
well in the days ahead. You
may feel at times that there is
little reward here, but I
believe that many of you are
earning a richer reward which
you will reap one day in the
hereafter.
Very truly yours,
Henry Chason

-s


important, but this one has definite lines
drawn between two factions; two groups with.
differing ideas about how the Municipal
Hospital should be run.
THERE IS A MORE IMPORTANT issue
facing the voters next Tuesday. It's an issue
which faces everyone personally and affects
every citizen more so than the hospital issue,
does, as important an issue as that one is.
This is the issue of who will manage your
city business for the next two years and are
they capable of doing so.
As we have said before here in this space,


the City business now is big business. As a
matter of fact the City business is the fourth
largest in the Port St. Joe area, following St.
Joe Paper Company, Sylvachem and Basic in
size of operation and money involved. To you,
it is the largest business, because it is your
business.
I am not saying the present City Commis-
sion members are the only ones who could
manage your money efficiently. There are
many others who could do so. The only point
I am making is that the City finances have
been well managed and more accomplished
for the service of the people during the past
10-12 years than probably at any other time in
the City's history. I personally am anxious to
keep it that way, regardless who is on the
Commission.
THE ISSUES WHICH FACE US at this
election time are serious enough that they
demand the attention of every electorate.
For the past several years, even during
county-wide elections of heavy interest, we
have been plagued here in the county with


only 30 to 60 percent of the voters turning out
to cast their ballots.- Needless to say, this
doesn't give a fair test of the people's will.
This election would seem to me to be
important enough to better that percentage of
voter turn-out. The questions before us de-
serve more than the scant attention elections
have been receiving. This election deserves a
decision from the true majority of our
electors and not just a majority of the half of
the voters who usually cast their ballots.
TUESDAY'S ELECTION wouldn't be such
a serious matter if it were not for the fact
that all but one of the present Commission is
presently under attack; and that lone faces
the electorate next Tuesday. But, if the
opposition is successful, the City would have a
complete new Commission and a complete
change of attitude toward City matters.
The reason the election to Commission
seats is now staggered is so a completely
green board will not come into power in any
one given year-. The new group has to learn
how to keep the City operating and away
from bankruptcy. It's a trade which must be
learned just like any other.
FOR THIS REASON, we would urge that
everyone cast his vote on Tuesday.

Post-War*

Period

Tough

On South
George Atkins, an amateur
historian of this part of
Florida, from Blountstown,
revealed a part of that history
to the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day.
Using the life of one Calhoun
countian, Luke Locke, Adkins
told of some of the happenings
in the county just prior to,
during and after the Civil War.
Locke was one of the
Calhoun county men who was
left behind because the cus-
tom in those days was to leave
ont man in each family home
to tend the farm. Even so,
Locke was a commander of
the home militia.
Locke was also a leader in
his day, being instrumental in
the formation of Jackson
County and one of the group
who were instrumental in get-i,
ting Florida admitted to thei
Union.
Atkins declared that recon-
struction of the South follow-
ing the war was an important
part of history left out of the
history books. He declared the
era was important to the
formation of attitudes which
lasted for 100 years.
As an example, he told of a
James W. Yearty, who was
sheriff, tax collector and
representative. He had a
reputation for foreclosing on
people's property, so Luke
Locke took it upon himself to
kill Yearty. Locke also went to
Tallahassee to kill the first
Republican governor Florida
ever had, but his friends
talked him out of it once he got
to Tallahassee, telling him the
Government might send down
soldiers and a worse governor
than they now had.
"The South was in terrible
condition in those days",
Adkins said. He said Henry W.
Grady, the Atlanta editor
described the South as, "Con-
federate soldiers returning
home to no money, no credit,
nolaw,.,:farms devastated
barns empty, family with no
jobs and no hope."
Guests of the club were Jim
McNeill, Jr., and Mrs. May-
bell Swatts and Mrs. Eunice
Brinson, officers in the St.
Joseph Historical Society.

FLORIDA


NATIONAL IS

Bank at Port St. Joe. You should get
to know him, because he and all
the people at Florida National
can do more for you than you
might think.

improve your home. Or put you
ina car.
People who'll set up a savings
plan just for you. And help you
plan for retirement.
People who'll give you a choice
of checking accounts. And take
an interest in your business. And
even guard your valuables.

find out for yourself. Get to know

To the People of


Port St. Joe


I am running for the position of mayor-commissioner of our city. This position
requires a person with leadership ability. I have that qualification.
I welcome new industries and competition Into this area. The construction of the
Highland View overpass and the deep water port would be an asset to our
community. But this is only the beginning of future expansion of our town.
We need to put our tax dollars to better use than for legal fees as it is presently
being wasted. We need to work with each other to get good use of our potential.
I promise to carry out the wishes of the people and not take instructions from a
chosen few. I am here to serve you the people of Port St. Joe.
I realize the need for health care facilities which this community badly needs.-
I want to remind you that we are one people with a common cause to better our
living conditions and enrich the spirit of our community.

Dr. Joe Hendrix


Completes Course


Dr. Joseph P. Hendrix has
( completed continuing educa-
r tion requirements to retain
active membership in the
American Academy -of Fam-
ily Physicians, the national
association 'of family doc-
tors. The Academy formerly'
was called the American
Academy of General Prac-
tice.
The requirements call for
r 1methbers .to complete a mi-.
nimum of 150 hours of ac-
credited continuing medical
study every three years.
Members become eligible for
re-election at the end of the
third year following their
election to membership. The
Academy, the country's se-
cond largest national medi-
cal association, was the first
national medical group to
require members to keep up
with medical progress
through continuing educa-
tion.
The Academy, founded in
1947 and headquartered in
Kansas City, Mo., was in-
strumental in the establish-
ment .of a new primary
specialty in family practice
in 1969. The new specialty is
expected to increase the
numbers of family physi-
cians available to serve the


public in the future. The
Academy's continuing educa-
tion program is the founda-
tion of eligibility for family
doctors now in practice, who.
apply for.certification in the
new speciality.

trained. The Commissioners
first opinion was that the
Tax Collector now had more
than adequate coverage be-
cause he never had more
. than five to six. thousand
dollars in cash at one time
and that all large sums were
in the form of checks that
could not be cashed by any-
one and could be replaced if
lost or misplaced; however,
the Board said it would
study this request.
Florida Engineering Asso-
ciates presented a plat of
Homewood Subdivision in
the City of Wewahitchka, it
having been approved by the
City. There was a motion by
i Commissioner Kennedy, se-
conded by Commissioner
Gortman to accept the plat
for recording. Vote: Aye -
Kennedy, Gortman, Birming-
bam and Tankersley. Nay -
t Bgianch.
The Board entered into a
discussion as to its responsi-
bility for street work in city
subdivisions, when the cities
do not require the subdivider
to pave the streets and the
plat itself does not state in
its dedication that the Coun-
ty has no responsibility
whatsoever for street work
in said subdivision. It was
decided that each City
should adopt the County Sub-
division Regulations as to
streets. Commissioner Bir-
mingham said it was not
right for city subdividers to
be exempt from paving their
streets when the County re-
quired its subdividers to
pave their streets. The cities
will be contacted .on this
question. Florida Engineer-
ing Associates said it would
work closely with the cities
on this in the future.
The Board voted unani-
mously to authorize the Mos-
quito Control Supervisor to
attend the Anti-Mosquito As-
sociation Meeting in Tampa
on April 23-25, 1979.
Tommy Pitts, Administra-
tive Assistant, discussed the
County Road Paving Pro-
gram and gave a financial
report on funds now avail-
able. The Board directed
him to proceed with plans
for the Oak Grove and Ho-
ward Creek Projects.
The Clerk read a letter
from Stubbs-Hannon, Inc.,
Realtors, on their request to
secure a non-exclusive fran-
chise for a water system on
Cape San Bias. After discus-
sion, there was a motion by
Commissioner Kennedy, se-
conded by Commissioner
Tankersley, and unanimous-
ly carried, that' Resolution
79-6 be adopted. A copy of
the resolution is on file in
the Clerk's office.
Griffin Construction Com-
pany, Contractor for the
Wewabitehka Ambulanee
Building, reported on certain
additions and deductions and
explained the reason for not
finishing the job on the date
set out in his contract. He
requested the completion
date authorized for March
29, 1979, the date the job
was completed, as per affi-
dabit filed. .There was a
'motion by Commissioner
Gortman, seconded by Com-
missioner Kennedy, and it
was unanimously carried, to
authorize the completion
date to be March 29, 1979.
The Architect presented
.his statement of fees due on
the Wewahitchka Ambulance
Building Project in the
amount of $58.70 and also
presented application and
certificate for payment to
Griffin Construction Com-
pany in the amount of
$9,599.00. The Board unani-
mously voted to pay these
two bills.
Addicks and Associates,
Insurance Consultants, filed
its proposal to make a sur-
vey, evaluate County risks,
determine financial resour-
ces, and the amount of in-
surance needed. The Board
tabled this matter for study.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Gortman, seconded by
Commissioner Birmingham,
and unanimously carried,
the Board approved payment
to the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council for the
amount due on the Compre-
hensive Plan. A copy of the
amounts is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Gortman, seconded by
Commissioner Birmingham,
and unanimous vote, the
Board approved payment in
the amount of $375.00 to the
Florida Panhandle Regional
EMS Management Organiza-
tion, Inc. for emergency
medical services for the .pre-
sent budget year.
Gulf Coast Community
College presented its state-
ments for books and supplies
used in the 1978 semester by
Gulf County Ambulance
members taking the EMT
course in the amount of
$387.40 and $180.00 for in-
structional fees.
The Board voted to autho-


missioner Kennedy to get
him a committee in White
City to begin studying the
possibility of a system for
that area.
Commissioner Kennedy in-
formed the Board that he
had received many requests
that the Board accept new
subdivisions without causing
the owner to pave the
streets and that if the
streets were paved by the
County, each lot would be
assessed the cost of paving
on a pro rata share. He then
moved that the Board estab-
lish such a policy. No second
to the motion.
The Attorney reported that
the Department of Transpor-
tation had made a traffic
survey in White City, pur-
suant to this Board's re-
quest, that they found the
speed limit should not be
lowered, but that 85 percent
of the traffic through White
City exceeds the present
speed limit. He then asked if
he should proceed with the
"no wake" ordinance for an
area 500 feet on each side of
the Overstreet Bridge. The
Board directed him to pro-
ceed. He also reported that
the State has approved the
Civil Defense Director.
Commissioner Gortman
discussed the possibility of
closing the bridge across the
Dead Lakes to fishing if
those fishing from the bridge
persisted in making the area
a garbage dump and an eye
sore. He said they must
curtail parking on the
bridge. He said this has
become a critical problem
that must have attention
from this Commission, the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, and all bran-
ches of law enforcement.
The Board voted to request
the Game and Fish Officials,
the Wewahitchka City Po-
lice, the .Sheriff, and the
State Conservation Depart-
ment to begin policing this
area and to- arrest all per-
sons parking on the bridge
and those caught littering in
any way.
The County appointed
James 0. Watson as the
County Fuel Allocation Of-
ficer to replace Tommy
Pitts, who resigned because
of his heavy workload. '
The Chairman requested
the Department of Transpor-
tation to establish a no pas-
sing zone in St. Joe Beach
beginning at Pine Street and
ending at the Wonder Bar
and one at Beacon Hill from
the Beacon to the County
line.
The Chairman discussed
the possibility of securing
the piling at the present
Overstreet Floating Bridge.
He said the County has here-
tofore requested' the Depart-
ment of Transportation to
leave the pilings in place;
however, the Department of
Transportation reported that
they must be moved because
they would create a traffic
hazard. The Clerk was in-
structed to contact the De-
partment of Transportation
in an effort to have the
pilings donated to the Coun-
ty.
Commissioner Kennedy in-
formed the Board that Mrs.
Boyer was requesting the
County to build her a short
private road at anytime the
Road equipment was work-
ing on the Bryant's Landing
Road and that she would
pay for the work.
Chevron reported that the
price of gasoline has in-
creased two and one half
cents or fifty eight and one
half cents per gallon.
The Board of County Com-
mission met April 5, 1979 in
special session as adver-
tised. The following mem-
bers were present: Chair-
man, William R. Branch,
Leo Kennedy, James L.
Tankersley, Douglas C. Bir-
mingham and Jimmy 0.
Gortman. Also present were:
Sheriff Ken Murphy, Deputy
Clerk Jerry Gates, Adminis-
trative Assistant Tommy
Pitts, and Attorney William
J. Rish.
The meeting came to or-
der at 5:00 p.m.
Commissioner Gortman
opened the meeting with the
prayer and led the pledge of
allegiance to the flag.
The Chairman announced
the first order of business of
the special meeting was to
negotiate a contract with
Barrett, Daffin, and Carlan,
Inc. for consulting engineer-
ing services as required by
Florida Law for the Second-
ary Road Program. Don
Spencer, Charles H'. Carlan,
and Reginald L. Tisdale,
were present, representing
the engineering firm. Carlan
presented each member with
a package containing the
following items: a full ser-
vice consulting engineering
contract, a priced proposal

Procedures continued at
an even faster pace as the
1979 Legislative Session
wound up it's first month.
Calendars were full and the
House passed quite a num-
ber of bills. Some of those
passing the House and head-
ing toward the Senate in-
cluded CS for HB 189 which
provides that the Depart-
ment of Health and Rehabi-
litative Services may bring
proceedings to determine the
paternity of a child and the
court shall order reasonable
child support from the de-
fendant. Also passed was HB
1524 which prohibits bail on
appeal to a person previous-
ly adjudged guilty for a
violation of the Florida
Comprehensive Drug Abuse
Prevention and Control Act.
In other debate, Commit-
tee Substitute for HB 1036
established the Florida Pri-

and Birmingham voting aye.
Commissioner Gortman and
Kennedy voted nay. Com-
missioner Kennedy stated he
could not make an intelli-
gent vote since he had only
a hour to study the contract.
The Chairman then an-
.nounced that the second or-
der of business would be to
discuss with the City Council
of Mexico Beach and the
citizens of the beaches area'
the possibility of water and'
sewer for the beaches area.
Mayor Bob Hale and the
City Council of Mexico
Beach were present to dis-
cuss with the Board the 201
Study made in the beaches
area. Gil Mauriello, J.B.
Converse & Company, Inc.,
was present to discuss the
,plan which involved Gulf
County since the collected
sewage will be pumped to
the Port St. Joe Treatment
Plant. He said present plans
are to include a pumping
system large enough to han-
dle the Gulf County beaches
area if they ever want to
come onto the' system:i He
said the system would be
built with a 75 percent En-
vironmental Protection
Agency Grant and a 25 per-
cent loan.


Session was not held and a
full day of committee meet-
ings and other appointments
was scheduled. The highlight
of the week was "Tampa
Day". The legislators and
,staff from both houses were
treated to delicious garbanzo
bean soup and cuban sand-
wiches.

line and stations through
Gulf County provided the
pipes are large enough to
handle the beaches area and
Highland View if they want
to come on at a later date.
Commissioner Tankersley
seconded the motion. Com-
missioner Birmingham
moved to amend the motion
to require the Board to hold
a public hearing and then
abide by the decision of the
people. Commissioner Gort-
man seconded the amend-
ment. Upon vote, the amend-
ment failed with Commis-
sioner Gortman and Bir-
mingham voting aye and
Commissioner Kennedy,
Branch, and Tankersley vot-
ing nay. Commissioner Bir-
mingham stated he voted
nay because the people of
Gulf County need protection
during construction. Com-
missioner Kennedy stated
the.Bo.ard, along with the
Department of Natural Re-
sources, and the Environ-
mental Protection Agency,
would protect the people's
rights.

Swewarnmnusmry.
There are those who say they can't see for the life of them
why we would want industry in the Apalachicola Valley; industry
can cause problems. Agriculture is OK, they say, but let's not give
the farmers any breaks.
Don't we already have a wonderful "way of life"?
If they mean pleasant characteristics of land, water and
people, the answer is yes. -
But our economy sits on a fragile base. We consume more
than we produce.
All real economic wealth derives from production-production
based on (1) natural resources, (2) human effort or (3) a
combination of the two. Seafood production in Apalachicola Bay,
though it represents in large part a gift of Nature is real wealth.
Agricultural production is real wealth. Pulpwood grown on our
land and harvested by our people is real wealth. So are all manu-
facturing processes in which people build a product or improve
upon a product.
We don't produce enough: Nature doesn't produce enough
to sustain our way of life without artificial and ultimately un-
reliable outside aids.
Nearly one-half the personal income in the Apalachicola
Valley comes from two sources: Government payrolls and some-
thing called "transfers," which means Social Security, welfare,
food stamps and the school lunch program.
When government whether federal, state or local pays off,
it just "us paying us," recirculating a part of the money earned by
someone who did produce a commodity and send his or her taxes
off to Washington, Tallahassee or the county seat. Government
jobs are necessary, but they create no new wealth.
Nor is there anything wrong with "transfers". But they rep-
present money earned in the past, either by the recipient, as in the
case of Social Security, or by other taxpayers.
Why do we want good, responsible industry?
Because we recognize reality. We know that we cannot con-
tinue to enjoy our chosen way of life or to pass it on to our chili-
ren without producing.
