Carter Named


County Ag Agent


Roy Lee Carter, an agricul-
ture teacher at Wewahitchka
High School, was employed by
the County Commission and
theFlorida Extension Service
Tuesday to serve as Gulf
County's new Agriculture Ex-
tension Director.
Carter will take over his
new duties on August 3, from
the retiring Cubie Laird, who
has served in the capacity of
Extension Director since 1945.
Carter's employment was
Approved on a unanimous vote
of the County Commission
After he had been recom-
mended Jto them by the
University of Florida Exten-
sion Division as "the best


qualified after an extensive
and detailed search, consider-
ing all requirements for the
position."
There had been some op-
position expressed to Carter
filling the position from Clyde
Brogdon of Wewahitchka who
wanted a different man ap-
pointed to the office, Brogdon ,
expressed his opposition at a
public meeting last Monday
night to discuss Carter's quali-
fications.
Carter said he could and
would work with everyone in
the county who needs his
services.
Carter has a master's de-
gree in agriculture from Flor-
ida A&M University.


Financial Problem Faces City


Income Not Keeping Pace with Rising Costs


Port St. Joe City Auditor and Clerk Charles
Brock warned the City Commission last Tuesday
night that with budget making time drawing near,
the City fathers face a definite financial problem for
the. next fiscal year.
Brock said that with the practice of not raising
taxes and reducing revenues from state and federal
sources, along with increasing inflation, the City
faces a cash problem for the coming year. "It will
be a matter of getting more, revenue through
increased taxes or cutting out some of the services
of the city during the new year. We've been coming
to this situation for the last three years and the line
must be drawn this year".
The City has not raised taxes for the past 10

years but has increased its services, largely from
more tax money coming in from improvements of
property. Even this source of additional revenue
will be at a premium this year, according to Brock,
who expects only an increase in revenue of $11,890
from this source. Brock said the budget for the
present year was drawn to allow a cash carry-over
of approximately $51,289 for next year's budget, but
Brock said that with increasing costs it was
"exceedingly doubtful if any funds will be available
at the end of this fiscal year."
Brock told the Commission that a planned seven
percent increase in pay for City employees will
average about 34.7, cents per hour for city


employees. In hiscomputation he said he has also
figured income estimates at a maximum and
expenses at a minimum which he described as
"very risky" with the rate of inflation currently
attacking any financial plans. Another move to try
and bring the budget in line with current revenues is
the elimination of the depreciation expense funding,
which the City has practiced for the past several
years in order to replace worn out equipment.
Brock pointed out, "about the only increase in
revenues we can expect is an additional $6,500 from
the cigarette tax."
The Commission will begin working on the new
budget within the next two weeks.

Murphy Warns of


Critical Gas Supply

Sheriff Ken-Murphy, who is the fuel allocations officer
for Gulf County, warned the County Commission Tuesday
morning that the gasoline situation will likely be worse in
Gulf County this month than it was last month.
Murphy told the Commission that it now appears as if
county service stations will begin, running out of gasoline
two weeks before the end of the month. Last month, some
stations were out for as much as a week, but gasoline was
--available somewhere in the-eeunty at All.times. Murphy
says he reports to the state energy office every day, giving
the status of the fuel supply here in Gulf County on that
particular day.
The Sheriff noted that July's supply allocation of
gasoline was released a few days early this month to take
care of the Jidly 4 travellers, and will cause a severe
shortage before the end of the month. .
Murphy suggested that the Commission take steps to
contact the state energy headquarters about the county's
needs and reported that he was already advising county
service station operators to call on their-suppliers for
some of the state set-aside supply in an attempt to get
enough fuel to meet the needs of motorists through the
month.
The county has felt some spot motor fuel shortages,
but has not faced the problem of no fuel or long lines at
service stations as large cities have.


St. Joe High School is resign-
ing from his position.'
Smith, who came to Port St.
Joe three years ago, took a
ragged organization and
molded it into a band which
was the 'source of pride for
everyone in the south Gulf
county area. In three short
years, the band went from a
disorganized group of kids to a
sharp performing group,
which earned excellent rat-
ings in state competition.
The Board now faces the
problem of replacing Smith
with a man (or woman) who
can keep the quality band
performing which they had
come. to, take for .granted
under Smith's leadership.
Smith listed personal rea-
sons for turning in his resigna-
tion.:
In another personnel mat-
ter, the Board had been
advised at the end of the past
school year that Port St. Joe
basketball coach, William
Lane wished to be replaced as
the head basketball coach.
Lane is also a physical educa-
tion teacher at the school.

Assistant

Here Today
"If you. are experiencing
difficulties with a federal
agency, and are frustrated
about what to do, we will help
you get your problems
straightened out."
With this comment Senator
Lawton Chiles urges citizens
of Gulf County to get in touch
with his assistant, Dean Fenn,
when he visits this area today,
Thursday, July 12. His sche-
dule is as follows:
Port St. joe County Com-
missioners' Room of the Gulf
County Courthouse from 2:00
p.m., to 3:00 p.m., EDT.'
Wewahitchka City Hall from
3:30 p.m., to 4:30 p.m., CDT.
For those who are unable to
visit with Dean, Senator
Chiles urges people to contact
his North Florida Office in the
Federal Building, Room 24,'
110 E. Park Avenue, Tallahas-
see 32302. Phone 904-222-1792.


The first of the several parts
of the county budget came
before the County Commission
Tuesday and was whacked by
10 percent.
County Property Appraiser,
Samuel A. Patrick, who, must


present his budget in July and
then report it to the State
Department of Revenue, ask-
ed the Commission to finance
a budget of $52,250, reflecting
an increase of $222.00 from
last year.


The Commission hopped
right on the budget, noting
that Patrick's assistant, Mrs.
Joyce Williams was scheduled
for an 11 percent salary
increase. Mrs. Williams was
to receive a 6.7 salary in-


Coast to


Coast
Wednesday, July Fourth, a
group of cyclists meandered
through Port St. Joe, stopping
for a lunch break at the
Constitution Park Museum on "'
Allen Memorial Way. '
The cycle group, made up of .
63 kids from 23 states, started
out riding their bicycles in San
and were expected to com-
plete their trip Saturday in St.
Augustine.
"Dinner" at their rest stop
Saturday included peanut but-
ter and jelly sandwiches out of
a diminishing five-gallon pail
of peanut butter.
The group, known as "Wan-
dering Wheels", was accom-
panied by two support vehi- P
cles, which carried the cloth-
ing changes, the peanut butter
and jelly and a repair shop for .
the bicycles.


crease from the county and a
$500 merit raise, recommend-
ed by the State Department of
Revenue. All of this came to
an 11 percent increase in
salary and the Commission
balked.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
spotted the salary increase
and called the Board's atten-
tion to the seven percent
guidelines called for by the
President. Commissioner
Doug Birmingham noted that
other county employees will
be receiving only seven per-
cent or less in wage increases
and couldn't see allowing one
employee to receive a greater
pay hike.
Patrick was also to receive
a pay hike, mandated by a
state law, but -the amount
wasn't known Tuesday.
This is when Birmingham
made the motion to cut the
entire Property Appraiser
budget by 10 percent.
Kennedy seconded the mo-
tion, noting that, based on the
present rate of spending in the
department, last year's bud-
get contained a $10,000 cush-
ion.
Mrs. Williams objected to
the cut, stating, "Our big
expense this year is yet to
come. Computer expense for
setting up the property rolls
for the tax assessor later in
the year are still to be made
and will amount to a consider-
able sum.
About this time, Patrick
showed up in the meeting and
said, "We have the budget as
low as we can work with."
Birmingham then said, "If
'he can't stay in the guidelines
set by the president, like
everyone else, I have no
alternative' (but to cut the
budget)".
As the matter wound up, the
Commission approved a bud-
get of $47,275.00 plus any
salary increase the state
mandates for Patrick.
DOGS
Over the objections of Sher-
iff Ken Murphy, who must
police the ordinance, the Com-
mission agreed to introduce a
dog control ordinance, now in
effect in Bay County, to give
the county some control over
dogs roaming throughout the
county.
Sheriff Murphy said, "My
department will be respons-
ible for policing this ordinance
and we don't have the people
to do it." -
The ordinance which was
not read, and was being


introduced only for study by
the Board, would require all
dogs in the county to be
innoculated and provide pen-
alties for letting dogs run loose
and out of control.
Commissioner Birmingham
asked that the Commission
study the ordinance before it
was introduced since, "none of
us has read it." Commissioner
Kennedy attempted to get the
board to study the ordinance
and make any changes they
wished, but his suggestion was
voted down.
Chairman Billy Branch said,
the Board is having a consid-
erable number of complaints
about dogs and reading the
ordinance for the first time for
adoption would get an expres-
sion of the feeling of the
people.
Adoption of the' ordinance
for the first reading was put
off until all the Commissioners
could look over the sample
presented.
DOOR TROUBLES
David Horton, squad chief of
the Port St. Joe squad of the
Volunteer Ambulance group
told the Board the door on the
ambulance here in Port St.
Joe was giving considerable
problems with opening and
closing.
Horton said, "At times there
are only two women on call
and they can't open the doors
or close them when they give
trouble. At times they can't
get the ambulances out with-
out securing help with the

DER Director Still Mum On Dredging Spoil Permit


After being told by Jake Varnes,
director of the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation that an
answer would be given last week on a
dredge permit for the entrance to the
harbor in St. Joseph Bay, the County
Commission was told Tuesday there is
still no communication from Varnes.
County and City officials contacted
Varnes about two weeks ago and were
told of the dire need for dredging at the
harbor entrance. Varnes assured the
H group he would give them an answer
jast week. So far, he hasn't.
Dave maddox, local bar pilot for the
bay, told the Commissioners he had
attended a meeting held in Sandestin


Saturday where representatives from
the Corps of Engineers, DER, Depart-
ment of Natural Resources, Congress-
man Earl Hutto and other officials were
to come up with a procedure to speed up
permits for dredging. The permit for
local dredging is all that is holding up
the project. Maddox said, "Our situa-
tion is still serious. The people in
Sandestin and other meetings we've
attended listen, but they apparently
don't hear you."
Maddox said the current project is
important for a second reason. "Not
only are we in danger of losing the use
of our harbor from lack of dredging, but
this situation is keeping ships from


coming in here and reducing the use of
our harbor. As a result of this lack of
use, Port St. Joe is one of three ports in
the Mobile District which the Corps is
considering abandoning because of lack
of use. If this happens we will be out of
the port business."
Maddox said the current situation is
costing the port business to the point
where something needs to be done
immediately if the port is to have a
future.
Tommy Pitts, the county adminis-
trative assistant said the proposed
three sites for dredge spoil in the
harbor entrance have not been turned
down. "The DER says they are going to


pick out one of these sites", Pitts said.
He told the Commission a group from
DER would be in Gulf County within
days to inspect, personally, the propos-
ed spoil sites to make a final selection.
Pitts pointed .out that the representa-
tives have not come as yet.
Maddox countered that it is now his
information from the officials he has
contacted that DER is proposing the
dredge spoil either be hauled out to sea
and dumped or brought in to Highland
View and dumped on shore. "Either of
these solutions would be expensive,
Maddox reported.
Maddox pointed out that Monday
night, he had to hold a tanker outside


the bay in order to navigate the shoaled
entrance in daylight rather than risk
running aground in the dark. "This
costs water shippers a great deal of
money to be delayed and they will not
continue shipping here much longer
unless some relief, from whatever
source, is received in the near future.
RIVER DREDGING
In a related matter, the Commission
agreed to write a letter than they were
not objectionable to the Corps continu-
ing to maintain a barge channel in the
Apalachicola river as they have in the
past. The Commission was asked to
make the stipulation by a resolution
passed by the Jackson County Board of
County Commissioners to get mainten-


ance work started again in the river
channel to Chattahoochee.
Commissioners Doug Birmingham
and Jimmy Gortman, main opponents
to river changes on the local board said,
"We're not opposed to the Corps doing
what they have been doing. We are
against expansion of their activities on
the river."
Gortman said the river was now just
oyer five feet and the barges were
running regularly.
Birmingham said, "I have seen
barges running by my river camp with
the river reading at Blountstown at
three feet. If they can run at threl feet,
they have an adequate channel in the
river."

We Hope Scallop


Experiment Works


It's now illegal to drag for
scallops in St. Joseph, Bay.
A law was passed recently
preventing mechanical harvesting
of the scallops from May 1 through
-September 1 as the result of a
campaign by local people, who
were interested in preserving the
:,scallops for those people who flock
to the bay each spring and sum-
mer, picking the succulent shell
-fish up by hand. It has become a
.-favorite family pastime of many
"throughout the northwest Florida
area.
Whether or not the prohibition
on mechanical harvesting will in-
crease or improve the yield of
scallops in the bay or not remains
to be seen. At least it will remove
the danger which was present with
divers and mechanical harvesters
working the same area for scal-
lops.
One of the reasons the mecha-
nical harvesting was stopped was

S The president again had his
'-chain pulled by the public for his
'backing out of a publicized energy
speech last week. People want to

Many, perhaps the majority, still
do not believe there is a shortage of
fossil fuels, but think the shortage
is a managed shortage.

What the problem is, he should tell
us and then assure us he has a

ment.

because the drags were scarring up
the bay bottom, eliminating all of
the sea grasses in the path of the
drags. Divers tell us the grass is
back again this year, so no per-
manent damage was done in this
area.
We don't think the dragging
does any permanent damage to the
scallops or the bay just as we don't
think many of the so-called 'rapes'
of nature does nature any perman-
ent damage. Nature is very resil-
ient and withstands much more
than man can do to it. We do
approve of the moratorium on
dragging to make the scalloping
available for the sport fishermen in
the bay. It offers a* fine, relaxing
and clean pastime for family fun
and we're for anything which will
offer more of this.
We hope the experiment works
and many people enjoy themselves
in our bay.

' SOMEBODY is missing their cute little
male'kitten-and I know they are sorrowful over
the situation of their kitten being lost.
I know he is lost, because I know nobody
would have heartlessly tossed this cute little
pet out at our house on July 4, trying to get rid
of it.
Like I say, the kitten showed up at our
house while I was out in the back yard July 4
barbecuing up some chickens for a family back
yard picnic on the holiday. He just came up to
me and stretched out to his full 10Y% inches and
rubbed his side against my leg. Our resident
tom cat, Houdini then came up and made his 15
pounds of muscle and bone known to the
intruder and he just struted up to his full 5 9-16

inches of height and spit at Houdini.
Houdini spit right back at the little yellow
striped ball of cuddlesome fur, who then
showed all 41 of his yellow stripes and 40 white
stripes, bristling all six whiskers on his left
cheek and four whiskers on his right cheek.
But, he -didn't leave.
I stayed up until midnight on July 4,
thinking the owners of the little stranger would
come by, frantically searching for this little
lost waif, but they didn't. I.guess they just had
no idea as to which way he had wandered bff.
The last time I looked the new cat was still
in the yard.
If you think he is yours, you may have him
by coming by and describing him enough so we


can be sure the cat belongs to you. I wouldn't
want him to be where he didn't belong.
And, he doesn't belong at my house..

I SWEATED July 4. All day I sweated.
After nearly 16 years, we had,to put a new
roof on our house. I contacted my friend Joe
Adams and said, "Joe, I need a new roof on
my house, the old one is going bad and needs
replacing. Can you get me someone to do the
job? I don't know who to call."
Joe sent a roofer around and on July 4, his
crew showed up to put on the new roof.
It was all of 95 in the shade on July 4, so it
must have been at least 115 on top of that house
after the shingles were stripped off.
The roofers worked, sweated, fell out,
rested, and went back to roofing again,
replacing the old covering.
I watched the process for much of the day
and that was the wrong thing to do. I could tell
they were burning up, with sweat rolling down
their bodies like a stream of water. I was
already hot from the 95 degrees and watching
them up on the house, at that hot job, made me
just that much warmer.


The holiday was good for me, though. It
made me glad I wasn't a house roofer.

week, if it hasn't already. Nobody knows where
or when it will fall, but if you live in a path
around the middle of the earth from Canada,
south to Tennessee, you are susceptible to its
falling debris.
This makes us safe in Florida, but don't
count on it. From the reports' we have been
receiving about where and when the giant
laboratory will come down, it could fall
anywhere.
For the next week, we will probably have
an epidemic of skinned shins aU over the
United States. With people walking around,
looking to the sky for pieces of sky lab which
may rain down on them, they can't see where
they are going, and will be running into all
types of obstacles.
What we'll have to do is walk around in
pairs until the big machine comes back to
earth. That way, one can look at the sky,
watching for sky lab pieces and the other can
watch where both are going.
The old philosopher said, "Behind every
cloud there is a silver lining". If we look for the
silver lining in the black cloud of the threat of
sky lab falling, I guess it will have to be that
the advent has given us something to talk about
besides the gasoline shortage.

JULY FOURTH was a quiet holiday here in
Port St. Joe. No accidents, nobody hurt an
everyone had a good time.
That's the way a holiday should be.

Says House

Beginning

of Ruin

To Whom It May Concern:
Throughout the last year,
one of the major points of
interest in Gulf County were
those events relating to the
construction of the apartment
complex on the beach side of
St. Joe Beach. This construc-
tion venture was headed by
Cecil Costin, Jr. and Tom Gib-
son of St. Joe. As everyone
knows, St. Joe Beach is per-
haps the only beach around
which hasn't been completely
devastated by homes, etc. We
were all in hopes that it would
remain that way.
If everyone would look into
this matter deeply enough, the
question would surely arise:
Why was this house construct
ed? -And the answer would
surely be: MONEY. We all, as
Gulf County citizens, realize
the money that these men
have; and that leads to
another question; must he
destroy Our beaches in order .
to satisfy his own selfishness?
Now that the case is nearly
closed-leaving Mr. Costin
victor-we all realize that
*through generations to come,
Mr. Costin's actions will be
remembered as the spark that
lit the flame of destruction to
our beautiful St. Joe Beach.,

order prior to departure for
vacation.
During a one or two week
period away from home, con-
siderable damage may be
experienced by plants if care
is not provided. This is espec-
ially true for plants growing in
containers-both indoors and
outdoors. If asked, a neighbor
will probably check on the
plants while you are gone. It is
important to give this person
proper instructions on the
needs of each plant. Needs
may vary considerably and a
friend may not have the same
type of sensitivity for plants as
the owner.
A little time spent in ready-
Sing your home for your
, abs nc Mnay spare mbny
extra hours of work upon your
return. Perhaps the following
checklist will be helpful.
Place your outdoor potted
plants in a shady location.
This may be near the side of a
building having a northern
exposure or within the protec-
tive cover of a heavy foliage
plant. *
Potted plants may be placed
in the ground up to the rim of
the container. A thick layer of
mulch will conserve moisture
and reduce the number of
waterings needed while on
vacation.
When caring for indoor
plants, place them in a room
which receives indirect light.
Direct sunlight will dry the
-soil quicker. Do not leave
plants in a darkened room,
because leaf drop will surely
result. The last thing to do
before leaving on a trip is to
thoroughly soak the plants. If
the vacation extends over a
two-week period, move house
plants outdoors and sink pots
in a shaded and cool garden
bed.

Luke Phillips

On Dean's List
Luke Edward Phillips, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Noel G.
Phillips, has been named to
the Dean's List at Florida
Institute of Technology at
Jensen Beach, Florida for the
spring term. Being named to
the Dean's List represents
outstanding scholastic perfor-
mance, and a letter of congra-
tulations has been sent to Luke
by Ernest E. Tealey, Dean of
the Jensen Beach Campus of
Florida Institute of Techno-
logy.
SLuke Phillips, 1976 graduate
of Midleton College, Cork,
Ireland, attended the Univer-
sity of Galway in Ireland and
is currently a sophomore and
is majoring in Aquaculture-
: Environmental Technology at
Florida Institute of Techno-
; logy, Jensen Beach Campus.
The Phillips family recently
: came to Port St. Joe from
County Waterford, Ireland.






The city with the highest
7 population is Shanghai, China
with nearly 11 million
inhabitants.


Mow lawn .just prior to
leaving, if possible. An unkept
lawn is a tell-tale sign that no
one is at home, 'as well as
being bad for the lawn grass to
get out of hand. Perhaps mow
a little shorter than usual if
your stay will be long. Water
the lawn well prior to leaving,
or make provisions for sprink-
lers to be turned on. Treat for
chinch bugs and or fungus, if'
signs of these pests are
present.
, Give_ garden beds and
plants, particularly those re-
cently planted, a final and


good soaking prior to leaving.'
It will. help to mulch plants
with leaves, pine needles,
compost or bark to conserve
moisture.
Cut flowering annuals just
before lI having. Annuals which
go unc'it will -soon cease to
bloom. Plant food is used to
nourish developing seed in-
stead of production of new
flowers and foliage.
Give plants a good spraying
or dusting to protect against
harmful insects and diseases.
Provide a good over-all
weeding prior to departure. It


weeds are allowed to go to
seed while away, you can
expect a much harder job of
weeding later in the season, or
next year when the seeds
sprout. Weeds also rob desi-
rable plants of food and
moisture.
Harvest all ripened or near-
ly ripened fruit and vegetables
prior to leaving. Vegetables'
will continue to produce if
harvested often. Make ,ar-
rangements with a neighbor to
harvest and water the garden
in payment for vegetables and
fruit.


Hunting, Fishing Licenses


Will Now Cost You More


When the first hunting li-
cense increase in 37 years
successfully passed the 1979
Florida Legislature, sports-
men were assured not only
that current wildlife programs
would continue but efforts
would be intensified to meet
ever increasing demands.
"We were literally at the
point where we would either
have had to cut programs or
obtain additional revenue,"
said Colonel Robert M. Brant-
ly, executive director of the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission.
"The increased revenue will
amount to approximately $3
million in desperately needed
operating funds," Brantly
said. "We can now look ahead
to keeping up with the rising
costs of managing the state's
wildlife resources."
The boost in resident hunt-
ing licenses, from $7 to $11, is
the first increase since 1942.
Resident fishing licenses,
which went from $2.75 to $6,
had been increased on $1 in 37
years.
"During the Depression, a
Florida hunting license cost
$10. But that was lowered in
1942, where it had stayed while
inflation continued to rise,"
Brantly said. "We were being
forced to operate on a level
which often was inadequate to
meet minimum needs."
The increase in hunting
license fees averages out to
about 33 cents a month for a
Florida resident hunter, the
executive director said, "or
less annually than a box of
shotgun shells."
"Florida fishermen are cur-
rently paying almost as much
for 100 red wigglers as they
will for a new fishing license.
If they use that $6 license only
10 times a year, each trip will
cost only 60 cents the least
expensive cost of a fishing
trip."
More than 54 percent of the
anticipated revenue will be
devoted to increased law
enforcement operations to
preserve and protect Florida's
wildlife and freshwater re-
sources, he said.
The additional law enforce-
ment personnel, an estimated
36 officers, will greatly facili-
tate use of the 24 hour hotline,
established for citizens to
.report wildlife law violators.
Although no immediate
large scale addition to wildlife


management areas is antici-
pated, Fred Stanberry, direc-
tor of the Commission's Divi-
sion of Wildlife, said the
increase will allow the Com-
mission to "Retain those
areas we have, intensify man-
agement 'and probably add
areas as they become availa-
ble."
That includes habitat im-
provement, control burning,
food plot plantings and the
building of some water control
structures, along with road
maintenance. Also anticipated
are more personnel and funds
to carry out needed research
on the alligator, furbearers,
wild hog, bobwhite quail and
endangered species.
F.G. Banks, director of the
Division of Fisheries, echoed
Stanberry's statement, ex-
plaining that the increase
means that ongoing fisheries
programs can continue and
expand.
"Our hatcher production
should increase by some 100
percent," Banks said. "This
translates into being able to
produce five million sunshine
bass for stocking an additional
75,000 to 100,000 acres of public
lakes and streams by 1982.
Currently, we are producing
only about two and one half
million of these very popular
game fish."
Also received is the man-
power and funding to carry
out legislative-mandated work
on the growing aquaculture
and commercial fisheries of
Florida as well as on exotic
fish.
The new 1979-80 license fee'
schedule, including the fee
charged by tax collectors, is:
Resident: Series A-Fishing,
annual, $6.50; Series AB-Fish-
ing, valid 12 months from
issue, $7.50; Series AK-Hunt-
ing, fishing combination,


$17.50; Series K-Hunting, an-
nual, $11.50; and Series I-
Hunting, home county, $4.50.
'Nonresident: Series B-Fish-
ing, annual, $10.50; Series
C-Fishing, 14-day, $7.50; Se-
ries D-Fishing, 5-day, $5.50;
Series L-Hunting, annual,
$50.50; and Series M-Hunting,
10-day, $15.50.


Habit Control

Counselor
A new method of habit
control and personal deve-
lopment control is being
used by clients of Lauren
Carter, M.A., an Apalachico-
la counselor now in private
practice.
Combining principles of
behavior modification and
hypnosis, Mrs. Carter is pro-
viding services to individuals
and groups to assist in stop-
ping smoking, losing weight,
coping with every day stres-
ses, and numerous other ap-
plications.
Private sessions can be
scheduled for services and a
weight loss group is now
available to area residents
each Thursday evening at
7:00 p.m. in the Apalachico-
la Community House at the
foot of the Gorrie Bridge.
More information may be
obtained by calling Mrs.
Carter at 653-9855.
CARD OF THANKS
We wish to express our
deepest gratitude to all bur,
relatives, friends and neigh-
bors for their expressions of
kindness and sympathy at the
time of the loss of our hus-
band and brother, William
Joseph Ferrell.

Synthetic Fuel'
The need for alternative
energy sources has never been
jnore apparent than now. Since
the 1973-74 Arab oil embargo,
we have continued to rely on a
cartel for almost half of our
energy needs and we are again
confronted with shortages,
high prices, and uncertainty.
For a nation that consumes ap-
proximately one-third of the
world's energy, this is not a
healthy situation.
Recent events have not only
dramatized this' over-reliance
on foreign oil but have resulted
in long-needed action by the
Congress. On June 26, Con-
gress passed H.R. 3930, a bill
which extended the authority
-granted by the Defense Pro-
duction Act to initiate the pro-
duction of synthetic fuels for
f jur national defense purposes.
The aim of this bill is to
:achieve a national production
:goal of at least 500,000 barrels-
iper-day crude oil equivalent of
.synthetic fuels and synthetic
Chemical feedstocks by
;October of 1984. This, I think,
is a major step in the right
.direction. toward energy
:independence.
: Using a joint government-
:private industry effort with
:emphasis on free market
;forces, this bill would not only
:strengthen our national
,defense through energy in-
:dependence, but also could
(have a significant impact -on
:domestic energy production as
.well. Most importantly, it
:could serve as a stimulus for
:the development of other alter-
.native energy resources.
SI, n fact, a few weeks ago,
,President Carter outlined a na-
tional strategy for accelerating
-the use of solar and other
:renewable resources. Under
:this plan, our nation would
derive 2007 of our energy needs
:from the sun by the year 2000.
In addition to solar and
,synthetic energy, .there are
.numerous forms of energy that
'hold great potential. 'Proposals
lre now pending before Con-,
Se-s that include shale oil,
:ocean thermal, wind, gasohol,
coal, and other forms of
,energy that could help our
:.country become energy
,independent.
In the meantime, we must
increase our own domestic sup-
plies of oil, in order to rid
ourselves of the Arab monopo-
ly on oil.
1 believe in our country and
I think we have the foresight to
plan now for the future. I
know you are concerned over
the energy shortages and I
,share your concern. It won't be
easy to overcome these prob-"

Dollar Coin
Don't be surprised if you
start receiving coins in your
change which closely resemble
quarters but have a faceted
edge. In fact, while you are ad-
justing to this new introduction
to the U.S. monetary system,
you should watch your change
with care.
If you are totally confused
by all of this, I am referring to
the newly minted Susan B.
Anthony small dollar coin. It
will replace the Eisenhower
dollar which was discontinued
on December 31, 1978.
*The Anthony dollar is a
nickel-clad copper coin like the
new dimes and quarters. This
composition is more durable
and is cheaper to produce than
the older coins. In fact, the
federal government expects to
save a minimum of $4.5 million
per year with this coin. The
Eisenhower coin costs 8C to
produce while the Anthony will
cost only 3C each to produce.
Similarly, the dollar bill costs
nearly 2C to produce and lasts
only 18 months in circulation,
while the Anthony dollar will
last 15 years or more.
As an historical note, Susan
B. Anthony is the only
American woman to be
honored on a circulating
United States coin.

Check List

for GIBil
Robert R. Erskine, Director
of the Florida Division of
Veterans Affairs under the
Department of Community
Affairs said, if you are a
veteran planning to enroll in
or return to school under the
GI Bill, the Veterans Adminis-
tration (VA) has a useful
check list to help keep those
VA education benefits coming
regularly.
DOUBLE check your choice
of courses to be certain they
will count toward your educa-
tional objective.
REGISTER .early. VA and
your school need time to
process your registration so
that GI Bill checks can be
started your way promptly.
AVOID dropping classes
after registration.
IF you have to interrupt
your education, notify VA
promptly and advise the date
you expect to return to class-
es.
IF you change addresses,
notify VA promptly. Of
Course, you will want to notify
the school and the post office,
* as well.
SUBMIT transcripts to the
college admissions and re-
cords office immediately after
application is made. This will
speed up the school's certifica-
tion to the VA.

Credit Is

Needed for

S.S. Pay
Before any social security
benefits can be paid on a
person's record, he or she
must have a certain amount
of credit for work covered
by social security, David
Robinson, Social Security
Representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
The exact amount needed
depends on the person's date
of birth or age at the time
he or she becomes disabled.
or dies. The amount of cre-
dit needed ranges from a
minimum of one and one
half years to a maximum of
ten years. In 1979, the maxi-
mum amount of credit need-
ed is seven years.
For retirement and survi-
vor benefits, this credit
could have been earned any
time since 1936. But, for
Disability benefits, a certain
amount of work credit must
be earned in the period just
before the person becomes
disabled, Robinson said.


(People 'disabled by blind-
ness don't have to meet the
recent work requirement.)
Since 1978, credits are
based on a person's annual
covered earnings.
A leaflet, "Social Security
Credits how you earn
them" gives more -detailed
information about earnings
credits. Free copies can be
obtained at the Panama City
Social Security Office, loca-
ted at 30 West Government
Street. The telephone num-
ber is 769-4871.


Traffic Deaths at Railroad Crossings Decrease In Number


Deaths resulting from rail-
highway grade crossing ac-
cidents in Florida fell 43
percent in 1978 said the
Florida Highway Patrol re-
cently.,
Comparing 1978 with 1977


patrol records show that
deaths at rail-highway cros-
sings dropped from 53 to 3p,
injuries fell from 252 to 193
and total crashes dropped
from 358 to 327.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-


trol director said, "While
some credit for the drop
could be attributed to the 55
mph speed limit, a coopera-
tive educational effort called
'Operation Lifesaver' spon-
sored by the railroads, the

Beach said that many rail-
highway grade crossing ac-
cidents happen to drivers
who live in the vicinity of
the crashes, the red lights
were flashing and it was


daylight. This indicates the
drivers were not aware of
their surroundings or were
daydreaming.

stop, therefore, the car must

The Department of Army,
Jacksonville District, Corps of
Engineers, notified the
Commission as to its files on
the Brown Creek matter and
that said matter was being
referred to the United States
Attorftey's Office for legal
action. The Board discussed
this subject at length" and it
was pointed out that in an
effort by members of this
Buard, who had no knowledge
of, this matter, except what
was reflected in the minutes,
letters from the Corps of
.Engineers, and heresay con-
versatiops of retired County
Commissioners and employ-
ees of M.K. Ranches, at a
meeting with members of the
Corps of Engineers, Mr. John
Roberts promised to meet
with the members of this
Commission with information
. that might be helpful in
determining whether or not
Gulf County had any liability
in this matter;that Mr. Ro-
berts had not produced such
information. On motion by
Commissioner Birmingham,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, and unanimously
carried, this matter was ta-
bled.
The Clerk reminded the
Commission that the next
meeting of the Planning
Commission was scheduled
for May 10, 1979, at 7:00 p.m.
The Board was presented a
bill in the amount of $2,555.12
for County Medicaid require-
ments. No action was taken.
The Cape San Bias Limited
Partnership filed its prelimi-
nary plat of Cape Breezes
Subdivision. The Board re-
quested Tommy Pitts, Admi-
nistrative Assistant, to study
the plat and make his recom-
mepdations.
Mr. Tommy Pitts, Adminis-
trastive Assistant, informed
the Board that Barrett, Daf-
fin, and Carlan, Inc. Engi-
neers, has filed a completed
,~cQJtract covering services Jto
be provided for one year..,
Copy of the contract filed in
the Clerk's office.
Mr. Pitts then reported that
the State of Florida, Depart-
ment of Environmental Regu-
lation, had issued Gulf Co-
unty a permit (No. SC23-
14014, dated 04-25-79) to op-
erate the Buckhorn Sanitary
Landfill. Said permit filed in
the Clerk's office.
Mr. Pitts advised the Board
that Mr. N. C. Schweikert,
County Director of Environ-
mental Health, had advised
the owner of Homewood Sub-
division and the City of
Wewahitchka that septic tank
permits cannot be issued
until the owner complies with
Chapter 10D-6.23(2) (b) and
10D-6.23(5) (c) of the Florida
Administrative Code and that
public water will be required
for a majority of the lots.
Mr. Pitts then told the
Board that a permit had been
received for maintenance of
the Saul Creek Public Boat
Ramp.
Mr. Lloyd Whitfield, Road
Superintendent, having been
requested to work up a cost
estimate for installing guard
rails at. the west approach of
the Dead Lakes Dam Bridge,

pilings at $75.00 each
$4,950.00, rails $1,837.44, fin-
ish ends $346.40 for a total of
$7,133.84.
Mrs. John Dill questioned
the Commission as to why
her road was not included in
the priority list recently
adopted and she asked what
the County planned to do
about her road. Commis-
sioner Gortman reminded
Mrs. Dill that this Board, and
according to the records of
prior Boards, they also, had
done everything that could be

done to obtain necessary
easements on this road,
known as the Bud Brocket
Road, the Stokes Fish Camp
Road, the Hanlon Road, and
most recently, the John Dill
Road. Commissioner Gort-
man said that some of the land
owners continue to give the
easements. He then said
-fThathis Board had hereto-
fore agreed that the County
Road Department would pave
this road, providing certain
conditions were met as to the
easements. He the.: moved
that providing the C:'unty
cannot fulfill this agreemerot,
that this road be placed on
the priority list. Commis-
sioner Kennedy seconded the
motion. After discussion,
Commissioner Birmingham
amended the motion in that
said road be given priority
no. one on the County Paving
List. Motion seconded by
Commissioner Gortman.
Upon vote, the amendment to
the motion passed unani-
mously. The vote on the
original motion passed unani-
mously.
The Chairman told the
Board that the action taken
on the John Dill Road was
deserving; however, it was
no more deserving than
many other roads that were
not included, in the priority
list. He said that it was not
fair to the citizens of the
County to change the priority
list after these priorities were
considered for such a long
time, after a special meeting
was held to study all needed
projects, and after adopting
and advertising the list. He
said that it now appeared
that every time someone
came to our meeting fussing
about their road, we would
change the original priority
list.
Commissioner Tankersley
made a motion to include
Georgia Avenue, St. Joe
Beach, on the priority list,
listing it with the other St.
Joe Beach projects, seconded
by Commissioner Kennedy,
and unanimously carried.
With Commissioner Bir-
mingham acting as Chair-
man, Commissioner Branch
made a motion that Cypress
Avenue from 20th Street
South and 22nd Street be
paved by the County in the
summer months during the
school vacation, providing
the City of Port St. Joe
agreed, seconded by Commis-
sioner Tankersley. Commis-
sioner Kennedy amended this
motion to include 'that the
City pay one-half the costs as
heretofore promised', oecond-
ed by Commissioner Branch.
Vote on amendment was
unanimously carried. Vote on
the motion was : Aye-Tank-
ersley, Kennedy, and Branch.
Nay-Gortman and Birming-
ham. Commissioner Birming-
ham said he did not favor the
motion because it was origi-
nally on the contractors prio-
rity list and now it was on the
County Paving List with no
priority except that it was to
be done during the school
vacation months and that it
takes another project away
from the qorth end of the
County.
Commissioner Branch
moved that a new priority
resolution be prepared to
include the changes made
today and that it be adopted
as the current priority list.
Motion seconded by Commis-
sioner Kennedy. Vote:
Aye-Branch, Kennedy, Tank-
ersley, and Gortman. Nay-
Birmingham.
Commissioner Branch now
in the Chairman's chair.
Commissioner Birmingham
discussed the fact that the
new Wewahitchka Ambu-
lance continues to have me-


chanical trouble even after
Tommy Thomas Chevrolet
attempted to correct the trou-
ble. It was also pointed out
that work done by Tommy
Thomas was billed to the
County; the County forward-
ed the bill to Ivey's Superior
Sales, who sold the unit to the
County, and that Ivey had
now returned the bill to
Tommy Thomas. Commis-
sioner Birmingham said "he
would have Tommy Thomas
look at the unit again and
remind him that the engine
was under the Chevrolet war-
ranty.
Commissioner Tankersley
discussed the stray cats and
dogs running loose in every
area of the County. He said
this was becoming a serious
problem.
Commissioner Kennedy in-
formed the Board that the
owners of Rochelle Subdivi-
sion had an agreement .with
this Board to pay the bond
requirements of the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer Issue
at $5.50 per lot per month for
-each lot remaining in the
owner's name, but that the
owner believes he should not
he held to this agreement
because the street in said
subdivision is in such condi-
tion that it cannot be traveled
due to clay placed on it by
the County Road Depart-
ment. It was the decision to
the Board that the agreement
to pay the bond requirements
was for placing. water and
sewer lines in a new subdivi-
sion where none of the lots
had been sold at the time of
the installation of the water
and sewer lines and it had
nothing to do with the condi-
tion of the street. The Chair-
man instructed the Clerk to
forward a bill to the owners
of this subdivision.
Commissioner Kennedy
urged the members of the
Board to attend the Citizens
meeting at the White City
Fire Department on May 15th
to discuss the possibilities of
a water and sewer system.
He then said something
should be done about the
dangerous bumps on the Pat-
tons Bayou (U.S.98) Bridge
caused by the State Road
Department scraping the
roadbed. -He said this could
be fixed in a few minutes.
The Clerk was directed to
call the District Engineer
about this and the same
condition at the Highland
View Bridge.
The Chairman told the
Board that it was time a
decision was made as to
whether (o' not -,the County
would issue bonds for a road
construction program. There
was a motion by Commis-
sioner Kennedy, seconded by
Commissioner Birmingham,
and unanimously carried, that
a public hearing be set to
consider this matter for the
meetings of May 22nd at
7:30p.m. and June 12th at 9:00
a.m.
Commissioner Birmingham
now acting as Chairman.
Commissioner Branch
made a motion to pay all
ambulance members mileage
for driving their personal
vehicles to and from the
Ambulance, with a maximum
of 300 miles per month, and
that a regular travel voucher,
as required by the State, he
used to report those claiming
this mileage, seconded by
Commissioner Kennedy. Com-
missioner Birmingham said
the Commission should take a
close look at this proposal
because it would set a costly
precedent in that we have
volunteer firemen all over the
County. He said that the City
of Wewahitchka pays the Fire
department a certain fee for
each member attending a fire


call, but these fees do not go to
the volunteer. Vote: Aye--
Branch, Kennedy, Tankers-
ley, and Gortman. Nay--Bir-
mingham. Commissioner Bir-
mingham' said he voted
against the motion because it
did not include safety precau-
tions.
Commissioner Branch told
the Board that the gas com-
pany in its expansion program
in Highland View had cut
across the pavement of most
all streets and had not satis-
factorily repaired these cuts,
thereby causing a safety ha-
zard and because of this,
moved to make all streets in
Highland View first priority
on the contractor's paving list.
Motion seconded by Commis-
sioner Kennedy. Commis-
sioner Birmingham said these
streets may be in bad shape
after being cut by the gas
company and not repaired
properly, but all other pro-
jects on the priority list are
just as important and to now
list all of these streets in first
priority would cause some
crucial areas of the county to
miss being paved. Vote: Aye--
Branch, Kennedy, and Tank-
ersley. Nay--Birmingham and
Gortman.
Commissioner Branch re-
sumed acting as Chairman..
Commissioner Birmingham
suggested that a special meet-
ing be called for the purpose of
considering the adoption of a
new road paving priority list
due to the fact that we adopted
and advertised our priorities
and today we have changed
them to the point where some
citizens would be glad and
some would be mad, there-
fore, we ought to adopt a new
list and settle this matter so
we won't change the list at
each meeting. No action taken
on this suggestion.
The Board of County Com-
mission met on May 24, '1979 in
special session with the follow-
ing members present: Chair-
man William R. Branch,
Douglas C. Birmingham, and
James L. Tankersley. Also
present were: Deputy Clerk
Jerry Gates, Attorney William
J. Rish, and Administrative
Assistant Tommy Pitts.
The meeting came to otder
at 6:30 p.m.
The Chairman announced
the purpose of this meeting
was to consider specifications
for road resurfacing in Gulf
County as prepared by the
engineering firm of Barrett,
Daffin, and Carlan, Inc. pre-
sented the specifications for
the Board's study before ad-
vertisement. '- :
After study and discussion
of the specifications, and upon
recommendation of Administ-
trative Assistant Tommy
Pitts, Commissioner Tankers-
ley moved the Board advertise
for bids as per the specifica-
tions to be accepted until
Tuesday, June 12, at 9:00 a.m.


for Recyclable

Aluminum
For the second time this
year Reynolds Aluminum Re-
cylcing Company is increas-
ing the amount it pays the
public for recycling aluminum
beverage cans and other clean
household aluminum. Effec-
tive July 3, the company will
be paying 23c per pound, an
increase of 3c per pound, Ric-
hard N. Boiling, President of
Reynolds Aluminum Recycl-
ing Comapny announced.
Mr. Boiling said, "This is
the sixth price increase in the
11 year history of the pro-
gram, demonstrating that as
the metal becomes more
valuable, Reynolds will main-
tain its leadership in recycling
with inflation fighting dollars
paid to the public for their re-
cyclable aluminum."
Besides all-aluminum beve-
rage cans and other clean
household aluminum products
such as pie plates, foil, frozen
food and dinner trays and dip,
pudding and meat containers,
Reynolds recycles certain
other aluminum items-in-
cluding siding, gutters, storm
door and window frames, lawn
furniture tubing and alumi-
num castings-which are also
worth 23c per pound if pro-
perly prepared. This alumi-
num must be free of all foreign
materials, cut to lengths not
exceeding three feet and
should not be mixed with
aluminum cans.
Area residents can recycle
their aluminum July 17 and 31
from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at
the County Dock, Boat Base,
Avenue E and Waters Ave.,
