Drug Hot Line Is Working


" -. The newly installed--drughot line-Ofthe: Gulf-County
Sheriff's Department began to pay off this past Tuesday
afternoon, with the arrest of a suspected drug dealer, Marvin
H. Geyer, age 52, of Panama City, formerly of Tesuque, New
Mexico.
Geyer was charged with felony possession of marijuana.
On information received from Patrolman Tony Bickerton,
Mexico Beach Police, Lt. Jack Davila of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department and Trooper Bill Godwin of Florida
Highway Patrol, stopped Geyer in Highland View while he
was operating a 1971 Volvo. Marijuana cigarettes were
observed in the front seat of the car. The driver was placed
under arrest and a search warrant was obtained for the


autom obile. ;' -' ...- .. ...
In the trunk. of the automobile a briefcase containing 14
bags of marijuana was found marked and ready for sale. The
total street value of the marijuana was estimated to be
$700.00.
Assisting in the arrest were Herschel Hill, Florida
Highway Patrol and Buckey Richter, Florida Marine Patrol.
Geyer is being held in the Gulf County jail awaiting
arraignment on charges of felony possession of marijuana.'
Sheriff Murphy said he is pleased with the results being
obtained through the drug hot line and urges citizens with
information concerning illegal use of drugs'to use the line:
227-1808.


David Horton, squad.chief of
the Port St. Joe squad of the
Gulf County Volunteer Aubm-
lance Service told the City
Commission Tuesday night
that his people needed some
relief since the Emergency
Room at Municipal Hospital
has been closed during the
week temporarily.
Horton said the ambulance
service really needed some
sort of arrangement made to
take patients to the hospital
who are critical, for medical
treatment.
The squad chief gave two in-
stances which had happened
that day; one in which his
squad had picked up an elder-
ly woman who was dying..
"Her doctor wouldn't see her
and she died at the hospital af-
ter we secured another doctor
to look at her', Horton said. He
gave another instance which
had happened Tuesday in
which the squad had been
forced to transport a young
woman, who was aborting her
baby, to Panama City for
treatment.
"We're not trained to handle
such emergencies as this for a
sustained period of time",
Horton said. "We have the
training to properly handle the
patient and get them to the
hospital as safely as possible,
but we aren't trained to doctor
a patient for the hour it takes
to run to Panama City."
What Horton was asking for
was some sort of medical care
for true emergencies where
the patient's life was threat-
ened. "If a registered nurse at
the hospital could-see this type.
patient, start an IV, give a
shot or stabilize the patient for
the run to Panama City, it
Would help us a great deal'",
Horton said..
Mayor Pate said it would be
a legal and medical matter
whether or not a nurse could
perform this service, but that
the Hospital Board would
meet with the local doctors
this week and try to come up


with a solution to the squad's
problem.
WASTEWATER CHARGES
Clerk Charles Brock advis-
ed the Commission that recent
changes in input to the Waste-
water Treatment plant by
local industry had put the
City's water and sewer budget
in danger. Brock said. "They
have cleaned up their effluent
to the point where their
charges are now lower under
the formula by which we bill
for services. This has increas-
ed the City's percentage paid
because our flow is constant
and the total cost of operating
the plant remains the same,
even with the improvements
by the industry."
According to the operating
contract for the plant, indus-
try is limited as to what it can
contribute to the plant in order
for it to meet its government
standards on outfall.
The Commission agreed to
revert to the charges made
during the last operating
quarter which contained a
lower service charge for the
City until a more equitable
charge formula, could be de-
vised. The Commission decid-
ed to call on the engineers
making a government 201
study of the plant to advise
them on a new or revised
formula.
"We can't expect the City to
pay the rates they would be
paying under the present
formula", Brock said. "We
just don't have the money."
BUDGET
While he was talking about
money, Clerk Brock asked the
Commissioners to begin think-
ing about the new budget for
fiscal 1979-80, which begins in
October
"Money will be shorter than
it was this year. Everything
keeps going higher, our people
need raises in salary and the
income is either less or
stagnant." He cited especially
an expected reduction in state

Students Are Getting Better; Tests Given Credit


Walter Wilder, Superintendent of Gulf
County Schools, said this week that there is
valid evidence the statewide Student Assess- '
ment Test, Part II, is having good results in
Gulf County.
Wilder said recent results from the tests
show an improvement of five percent in the
communications achievements of the stu-
dents and 17 percent improvement in the field
of mathematics.
In October, 1977, when the tests were first
taken, 93 percent of the students passed the
communications sector of the test. In the field
of mathematics, only 59 percent passed.
When the tests were taken again last October,
marked improvement was shown as 98
percent passed the communications section
and 76 percent passed the math.
"The 98 percent in communications is
about as good as any district will ever hope to
achieve", Wilder said. He said Gulf County'
students were above state average in passing


all phases of the statewide tests.
Wilder said the tests and the new
requirements for graduation in the state of
Florida saw Gulf County withholding a
graduation diploma from only seven of the 244
seniors in the.county this year. "These seven
still have the .opportunity to take the test
again this summer", Wilder said. "If they fail
again, they can take remedial work in adult
school and still have the opportunity to pass
the tests and receive a diploma", Wilder said.
Those students who took the tests last,
October have been sent to remedial classes
since that time ,and only three remain
incomplete in communications and 17 in
mathematics for next year's graduating
class. "They still have the opportunity to
receive remedial work during the coming
year and will have another opportunity to
pass the test this October", Wilder said. "We
expect many of these students to meet the
requirements in order to receive their


diplomas next spring."
Wilder said the tests have made a definite
impact on the achedemic quality of the Gulf
County system. "Our teachers and our
students have made great strides in bringing
up the academic standards of the entire
system", Wilder said. "We had the best year
we have had in Gulf County schools in a long
time this year", the Superintendent said,
"and I believe most of this is due to the study
goals the tests now require in order for a kid
to get a diploma at the end of his secondary
school career."
BASIC SKILLS
In Part I of the tests, basic skills, Wilder
said all students in grades three and five
passed the'basic skills tests this year. These
include testing in the fields of reading, writing
and mathematics. "All of these kids didn't
pass on the initial testing, but after the
October testing and a school year of
remediation, they passed in April," Wilder


said.
In grades eight and 11, the other grades
tested under the program, there are 100
students who will. be taking summer
remediation as a result of their test results.
"Most of these will be up to the test standards
by the time school starts in the fall", Wilder
predicted.
MORE TESTS
Wilder said that beginning next school
year, the county system will initiate a basic
skills test of its own to all grades. The state
program offers the test to only grades 3, 5, 8
and 11. Wilder said, "All students who fail the
county test will be remediated and required to
go to summer school to make up their
deficiencies.
"We think our own program will go a long
way toward to guaranteeing a quality
education to every student who matriculates
through our system", Wilder concluded.


Gas Gets Tight

The gasoline situation is beginning to tighten up here in
P6rt St. Joe, with the county eligible for 25,674 extra gallons
this month, but no indications of its being released are in
sight at this time.
County Fuel Allocations Officer, Sheriff Ken Murphy and
his administrator, Jack Watson, said the county is eligible for
the extra gallonage from the state's set-aside supply. "We
haven't seen the gas yet, nor do we have any Indication if and
when it will be delivered", Murphy said.
In the meantime, one station in Highland View has closed
already this month because his monthly allotment has run
out and he cannot get another delivery from his Panama City
supplier. Here in Port St. Joe, Ralph and Henry's Chevron
station has put out this 10 gallon limit sign because his supply
and allotment is running low.
Murphy said, "If we get this extra gas we are eligible for,
we will be in better shape, but we are still not getting our
share, in my opinion."

Port St. Joe. The bank was granted permission by the State
Comptroller early this year to locate a branch bank here in
Port St. Joe. The bank has plans to locate a temporary
building on the site for use until their permanent building can
be erected. Construction on the main building will begin
immediately.


The variety of pet dogs
which abounds in Port St. Joe
may be, individually, man's
best friend, but collectively
and running loose, they are
among the worst enemies of
walkers, joggers and bike
riders. The enmity between
dogs and these evening strol-
lers, runners and bike riders is
growing to epidemic propor-
tions and is causing more than
a little bit of consternation by
the human beings involved.
They are disturbed by the
dogs running loose, nipping at
their heels, or jumping up on a
non-suspecting exerciser for a
friendly pat on the head.
Some of these people let
their unhappiness over the dog
situation be known Tuesday
night, by calling on the City
Commission to stiffen the
City leash law.
Sidney Taylor, acting as
spokesman for the group at
the meeting, told stories of


dogs attacking elderly people
and children on bicycles while
taking their evening strolls.
Mrs. Taylor told of her neigh-
bor, an elderly man, who had
been knocked down by a
friendly dog, who jumped up
on him, breaking his glasses
and knocking him to the
ground. "He needs to walk
regularly, but he hasn't taken
a stroll since this incident",
she said.
Mrs. Neil Arnold said she
had been bothered by dogs
while walking in the evening.
"I have been advised to carry
a broomstick to fight off the
dogs, but who wants to carry a
broomstick around all the
time?" she said.
Mayor Frank Pate advised
the group present that the
Commission was aware of the
problem and unfortunately,
the dogs which bother people
are the hardest to catch. He
said the Commission had been


studying other ordinances to problem.

Rising Costs Force


Subscriptions Up

Everybody else is doing it ... and because they
are, they are making us do it too.
For the first time in several years, The Star is
going to have to raise its subscription and
over-the-counter prices. We've put it off as long as we
can, but the cost crunch has squeezed us too hard, and
we have to do something about it.
Effective July 1, the price of in county
subscriptions will be raised to $6.00 per year. Out of
county subscriptions will -be increased to $8.00.
Over-the-county, single copy price will be increased to
20 cents per copy.
If you want to blame anyone for this price
increase, blame it on the high price of oil. Everybody
else does.

One of the biggest arguments in
Northwest Florida at the present
time is an attempt of Georgia and
Alabama to force the state to agree
to using the Apalachicola for barge
traffic and arranging the river to
better accommodate this traffic.
Georgia and Alabama has hit on
a scheme to force Florida to develop
the river, while Florida is swaying
toward declaring Apalachicola Bay

zany further development of the

the movement, but there is a group
of people who are interested in
S keeping our present Port Authority,
intact, at least until they can
accomplish what they have started
with port development here in Port
SSt. Joe.
Whatever prompted the drive,
we heartily approve of it.
Our Port Authorities in the past
have been virtually an organization
in name only and now that we have
one which is trying to accomplish
.something for the good of the area,
we think it is a good idea to keep
them in business to see what they
can do.
Three of the members, B. Roy
Gibson, Jr., Dr. Joe Hendrix and Ed
Ramsey have their terms expire this
year and the drive is to get them
re-appointed..
Our Port Authority is a unique
organization. They cannot pass any

laws, they cannot levy taxes, they
have very little power and conse-
quently have done little more than
serve out their terms and be
replaced by others with the same
lack of clout.
The present Port Authority is no
different, in ownership of power, but.
they have managed to get something
moving which can mean a giant shot
in the arm to our economy and start
our port moving. This will mean jobs
for those who now have to leave the
area in order to make a livelihood. It
will mean jobs for those who are not
eligible for employment because of a
lack of job skills.
Our Port Authotity and their
accomplishments thus far are about
like David going after Goliath with

conference between the governors of
the three states in Atlanta later this
month to discuss the river and its
development.
It is our opinion that if- the
governors talk as reasonable men
they will find that the river is large
enough and resilient enough to serve
the needs of all three states
adequately if they can just come to a
meeting of the minds.
There should be expertise
enough in the three states to
hammer out a plan where all of us
can use the river as neighbors and

ETA OIN SHRDLU


By: Wesley R. Ramsey


I HAD A phone call from Bob Faliski last
Thursday night, about the time I had just
finished my supper and shed my shoes and was
just before settling down with a pile of
newspapers to see what the weeklies in the
surrounding towns were doing.
Bob said he had just returned from a trip to
San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. He, too,
had just started wading through a stack of
papers to see what had happened while he was
gone and he ran across my article telling about
our trip to Spokane, Washington. Bob was
particularly taken with the part of the article
which described the cleanliness of the city.
Bob is also a nut about keeping things neat
and clean. A piece of trash thrown on the road or
sidewalk sets him off into a tizzie. "I saw more
trash between my house and the paper mill when

I went to work this morning than I saw in either
of those three cities I visited", he said.
We talked about what it would take to make
Port St. Joe as clean as those big western cities
and came to the conclusion that the only thing
which would do it is for the people to begin to
have a little pride in their city and not throw the
trash down in a.thoroughfare in the first place.'
That's a fact. There are not enough people to
hire in order to do the job properly, even if they
worked around the clock at it, if the people are
going to continue to be careless with their trash
and toss it aside wherever it will land.
A case in point. Last Monday, I started down
the alley on my advertising gathering rounds
and I saw a man walking up the alley reading
something, with what looked like an envelope in
his hand. When he finished reading the piece of

paper, he just dropped the paper and the
envelope and kept on walking.
How can you combat a situation like that?

I WAS CHAGRINED over TV taking "The
Paper Chase" off the air. I thought it was a good
show and enjoyed watching it whenever I had the
chance. Now it is gone.
We still have such trash as "Laverne and
Shirley", "Mork and Mindy", the soap operas
and nearly a week full of viewing of other trivia,
but a good show just can't hack it.
That's sad. It's so sad I have practically quit
watching TV. I have $700 invested in a nice color
set and there's nothing worth watching on it but
"MASH", "Lou Grant" (and he's all re-runs)
and just a piddling few good movies occasional-
ly.

JOHN WAYNE was finally buried last week,
in a private funeral service attended only by the
family.
Wayne held the adulation of a lot of
Americans. He held the adulation because of his
life-style, which goes to show you that
Americans still have a sense of values. Wayne
believed in the flag, motherhood, being a man,
shunning the destructive fads such as marijuana
and putting down our nation.

His popularity should say something to those

BOYS OF THE tender age of 13 and 14 are
fighting the wars in Nicaragua and Vietnam
these days. That's kids who are only three or four
years older than my eldest grandson! That's also
picking them sort of young to do the fighting.
If you have boys this age, can't you imagine
how you would feel if someone gave them a burp
gun and put them out in the streets and the
forests fighting a realistic game of cowboys and
indians? I can see where it would be an
adventure for the kids, until they got shot, but it
should be declared a crime against humanity by
the United Nations to allow kids of this tender
age to shoulder arms in any kind of war.
True, the guerrilla type army doesn't pay
much attention to the UN and its rules
concerning gentlemanly conduct, but at least we
could lodge a formal protest.
The UN has an arm which collects money for
food for children in these nations at Hallowe'en.
They could do them a real service by raising a
world-wide howl against using these kids to shoot
one another while the adults rear back in their
easy chairs and urge them on.

HOORAY FOR JIMMY CARTER! I liked
what he told Teddy Kennedy last week. It scares
me even more that Kennedy might get to be
president of the United States. I think John
Kennedy made a better president by legend after
he was assassinated than he ever made while he
was alive.
I don't think Teddy would be much better.
And Mr. Carter? Now he's beginning to
sound like Harry Truman.

Notes

By BILLY -NORRIS
Hebrews 13:15, 11:6; Matt-
hew 15:8 (KJV). Key Word:
Reality of Praise.
(Hebrews 13:15) "By him
(Jesus) therefore let us offer
the sacrifice of praise to God
continually, that is, the fruit of
our lips giving thanks to His.
name." (Hebrews 11:6) "For
without faith it is impossible to
please him: for he that cometh
to God must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder of
them that diligently seek
him." (Matthew 15:8) "This
people draweth nigh unto me '
with their mouth, and honor-
eth me with their lips; but
their heart is far from me."
The Bible has much to say
about praise. We are to praise
God continually. We are to
praise Him at all times. (We
praise God in good times and
bad times, but we are never to
priase Him FOR the evil that *
Satan brings upon us.) We
praise Him because He is
worthy of our praise. Psalm
22:3 says God inhabits the
praises of His people.
When the Christian dis-
covers that it is praise that
pleases God and not our com-
plaints he is on the road to
victory. At first the praise
with our mouth and lips may
-be all that we understand of
praise (and this will bring vic-
tory for a while for the new
Christian or the newly
awakened Christian). But we
must soon come to an under-
standing of the "reality of
praise." When praise bubbles
up from our inmost being,
from out of the depths of our
stomachs, then we are pleas-
ing God. As Hebrews 11:6 says
we are to be diligent in seeking
Him.
Let's just not give lip
service in our praise of God,
but honor Him from the depths
of our very soul.

DRAFT REGISTRATION
The mood in both the
House and the Senate is stong
this year for the return of a
military registration system. It
has become increasingly ap-
parent that our military forces
have developed severe shor-
tages in manpower since the in-
itiation of the all-volunteer Ar-
my.
These shortages are most
noticeable in the Individual
Ready Reserve (IRR), the pool
from which the Army would
draw men to replace casualties
during the first months of
hostilities. Currently, the IRR
is. some 500,000 men short of
its requirements. The urgency
of this situation is now being
actively addressed by top
military officials in
Washington. These officials,
such as Army Chief of Staff
General Bernard W. Rogers,
cite this problem as critical in
light of the continued Soviet
buildup. General Rogers fur-
ther defines the problem as
twofold: 1) the shortage of
500,000 reservists in the IRR;
and 2) the 120-day period it
would take to actively initiate a
draft to begin training in time
of war.
General Rogers has pro-
posed some drastic alternatives
to alleviate this problem. First,
the General feels that the Army
will need troops ready for com-
bat within 45-60 days of an
outbreak in hostilities. The
Selective Service System now
believes that the minimum time
for call-up and training would
be 150 to 180 days. In order to
develop our Selective Service
System to a point of short-term
readiness, the General pro-
poses a renewal of the require-
ment that 18-year-olds per-
sonally register with the Selec-
tive Service System.
Second, the General
believes that' a limited draft
could be reinstituted to fill the
IRR. This alternative would be
initiated for a short period of
time to enable the services to
fill their ranks with the
necessary numbers and skills to
solve this problem.
The Carter Administration,
on the other hand, wants to re-
tain the all-volunteer force,
and hopefully avoid a hot
political issue, by offering bet-
ter enlistment bonuses and
shorter enlistments, use of
more women in support posi-
tions, reinstitution of GI
benefits, and even legislation
allowing for recall of veterans
as an emergency reserve. The
supporters of the all-volunteer
force are strongly supporting
the Administration proposals
and are accusing military of-
ficials of purposely working to
eliminate the all-volunteer
system by public attack and in-
adequate funding. The sup-
porters of the military position
point to the tremendous in-
creases in personnel costs since
the beginning of the all-
volunteer force and, further,
that the all-volunteer sup-
porters are the very individuals


. who annually, fight to reduce
defense spending in favor of
other programs.
There are now many pro-
posals pending before the Con-
gress. These proposals range
from maintenance of the status
quo to the immediate return of
the draft. Just recently, House
and Senate committees have
voted on plans to at least re-
quire the registration of 18- to
- 26-year-olds in case of an
emergency. Under these pro-
posals, individuals would
register and- receive classifica-
tion cards, but not be called for
active duty unless absolutely
necessary. It is believed that
this action alone would en-
courage enough young men to
join the reserves to alleviate the
problem. As this program
develops, I favor it over others
which have, thus far, been pro-
posed. I emphatically believe,
however, that any return of
registration and classification
must be as equitable as possi-
ble.

"IN GOD WE TRUST"
Madalyn Murray O'Hair
has been back at it again! This
time, however, the Supreme
Court refused her petition to
review the constitutionality of
using "In God We Trust" on
the coin and currency of the
United States.
O'Hair's complaint to the
Supreme Court was an appeal
for review of lower-court rul-
ings dismissing the complaint
that the use of these words was
in violation of the First
Amendment. In her complaint,
O'Hair claimed that the law
making "In God We Trust"
the national motto "has a
clearly secular purpose, ad-
vances religion, and entangles
government with religion ex-
cessively."
The Supreme Court denied
'icertori" (appeal) without
comment, thus ending the suit.
I am encouraged by the
Court's actions and hope that
this signals a change in attitude
for the members of our
nation's highest court.

CARD OF THANKS
Perhaps you sent a lovely
message
Or sat quietly in a chair;
Perhaps you sent a floral
piece
If so, we saw it there;
Perhaps for us, you softly
prayed
Or sent a tasty dish;
Perhaps you were not there
with us
But oh how you did wish;
Perhaps you spoke the kindest
words
As any friend could say;
For each consoling part you
played
We thank you and we pray;
God's eternal blessings go
with you
As you journey on life's way.

Complaints -


(Continued From Page 1)
"We can make the ordi-
nance stiffer, but we can't
apply a penalty, since we do
not have a city court", Pate
told the citizens. "We can pass
an ordinance stipulating a
punishment for the dog own-
ers, but it will be up to the
courts to apply the penalty."
The Commission finally
agreed to amend their present
ordinance to hold the owner
responsible for his pet running
loose. The present ordinance


does not have this proviso and
requires only that the dog be
picked up and held for the
owner to pay the pound fee.
The change would levy a fine
against the owner for allowing
his pet to run loose and be a
nuisance.
The new change in the ordi-
nance will be introduced for
the first reading at the next
Commission meeting and
could be adopted at the meet-
ing as an emergency ordi-
nance.


Why Gasoline Is Short


How did we get into this fuel
shortage mess? Charley Hen-
drick, division marketing rep-
resentative of Texaco, Inc.,
tried to give the Rotary Club
an answer to that question last
Thursday at their regular


meeting.
"Everything was going
lovely until 1973 when OPEC
dug in", Hendrick said. "At
this time we were importing
only 25 percent of our petro-
leum when the squeeze hit in


that year. "Now we're import-
ing 48 to 49 percent of our oil
and are in a more critical
position".
Hendrick said the laws of
the United States do not
encourage oil exploration.


"The domestic price of crude
oil is controlled at $5.00 to $9.00
a barrel and the oil companies
cannot afford to operate an
exploration program with that
-kind of a promised return."
He also said environmental
problems, permits for refiner-
ies and gasoline .properties
have caused a greater de-
mand for crude and slowed its
discovery He said it takes


eight percent more crude to
make unleaded gasoline than
it does leaded gasoline.

Hendrick said the only things
we can do at this time is to be
careful of use. "We now use
308,910 gallons of gasoline per
day in the United States. Our
consumption has increased
four percent each year -
seven percent in Florida."

and federal revenue sharing
funds. "They have been de-
creasing each year", he said.
Things Brock said the Com-
mission should consider in
preparing the new budget
include: Percent of increase
(if any) in salaries and


desired method of computa-
tion; personnel authorization
increases or decreases; Muni-
cipal Hospital financial sup-
port and how to fund same;
capital improvements and

suggested changes in water

Cautions Users to Avoid Complacency

Florida Power Corporation officials are sources and power purchased from other k I:,',tts by summer power plant ratings, have stated that supplies of low sulfur

"Customers should still adhere to strict
conservation measures." Blanchard explain-
ed. "Overall, fuel costs are up way up from
last year. *
"The best way to hedge against those fuel
cost increases, insure a continued energy
supply, and keep electric bills as low as
possible is to conserve wherever you can.
Customers simply can't afford to become
complacent in energy attitudes," Blanchard
said.
The customer demand projected for the
summer is expected to be 3,950,000 kilowatts.
The previous record summer peak occurred
in August, 1978 at 3,521,000 kilowatts.
The increased generating capacity avail-
able to the company, a total of 4,576,000


"The reserve margin, only 626,000 kilo-
watts, is less than the total capacity of the two
units at our Anclote Power Plant. That means
that if the company should lose one of its
major plants, due to mechanical problems,
weather or other problems, our reserve
margin is gone," Blanchard explained. "In
other words, we have a little breathing room
in energy supply this summer, but not a lot."
The availability of low sulfur fuel, required
to meet strict opacity standards, is in
question this year. The opacity limits refer to
the amount of light able- to pass through
smoke from power plant stacks. Opacity has
no relationship to health hazards connected
with air quality standards. Fuel suppliers


conservation efforts.
The result will enable customers to "hold
the line" on electric bills and will insure
sufficient power supplies for the hot months
ahead, according to James H. Blanchard,
assistant vice president, system operations.
."Our forecast of electrical consumption
indicates that usage and demand will reach
summer record levels for the period from
June through September," Blanchard said.
"And, while our largest, most efficient power
plants should be available for the summer,
increased use and higher fuel costs could
offset any savings. brought about by plant
efficiencies."
To meet customer demand last summer,
the company had to rely on expensive power

limits could be met.
Florida's electric utilities have asked for a
relaxation of opacity and particulate emis-
sion regulations established by the Florida
Department of Environmental Regulation to
permit greater fuel flexibility with those fuels
available to the state.
The. unavailability of low sulfur fuel and the
inability of Florida's utilities to meet opacity
and particulate standards would mean that
many power plants would be forced out of
service to. avoid heavy fines and possible
criminal penalties for non-compliance. Shut-
ting the plants down would result in a critical
energy shortage situation, similar to that
experienced last summer.

cilitate government boat ac-
cess to and from the island. A
new watercraft facility is to be
located adjacent to the main-
land -headquarters which will
consist of a pier approximate-
ly 10 feet by 2000 feet with an
attached floating dock and
boat shelter. The second wa-
tercraft facility is to be
constructed at the west end of
the island directly across the
Sound from the mainland
facility. This too will consist of
a pier approximately 10 feet
by 250 feet with attached
floating dock. An alternative
to both these docking facilities
would be the construction of
boat basins.

include the replacement of the
present temporary headquar-
ters with a new combination
office and visitor contact
station. This complex will
offer greater room and com-
fort to the visiting public and
refuge personnel as well as
increased operation efficien-
cy. In addition to the office
complex, a storage and main-/
tenance building will also be.
constructed. The access road
and parking lot are to be
paved and a wildlife foot trail
will be located adjacent to St.
Vincent Sound.
On St. Vincent Island, a
proposed shop and associated.
service buildings would be
located adjacent to the water-
craft facility. Rehabilitation
of the present water control
structure is also planned.
When complete, this will en-
able manipulation of the water
level in the island's 250 acre
freshwater lake system; thus
providing a means of keeping
the system more productive.
Visitor contace stations are
also proposed at two different
island locations. One station is
to be located directly across
from the landing at Indian
2Pass;.-and the other at the
eastern end of the island at the
mouth of Outlet Creek. The
purpose of these stations will
be to provide contact points
for distribution of informa-
tion. Portable toilets will also
be erected at these locations.
Enabling the public better
access to the island's interior
is a primary objective of the
Fish and Wildlife Service. To
facilitate access, over 25 miles
of. existing roads are to be
designated as foot trails. The
public will be encouraged to
take full advantage of these
