Road Bonds On Go


The Gulf County Commission gave the
go-ahead signal Tuesday night to enter into a
bond issue to pave several streets and roads
I throughout the county.
The Board gave attorney William J. Rish
authority to begin preparation of the bond
issue and passed a resolution notifying the
Department of Transportation to proceed
with their preparations toward bonding a
portion of Gulf County's secondary road funds
for the paving program..
The County agreed to bond up to $2.2
million, backed by a portion of the county's
share from the gasoline tax (secondary road
fund). The bond issue would run over a 12
year period.
The County will finance the bond issue
with either Farmers Home Administration or
with DOT at a rate of interest of around 5.25
percent, depending on who does the financing.
County Administrative Assistant Tommy
Pitts told the Board that it appeared as if
some 18.projects on the road paving list could
be paved under the bond program. The


particular roads on the list to be paved under
the program have not been selected as yet;
Some streets on the list have right of way
problems and various other legal problems
which would prohibit paving at this time.
Until these irregularities are determined, the
list of streets to be paved will be flexible.
OTHER ROAD INFORMATION
Other road information to come before.
the County was a report from Reggie Tisdale:
of the county's engineering firm of Barrett,
Daffin and Carlan,. Inc., of Tallahassee.
Tisdale told the Commission that al
$350,000 paving contract let last month under;
the secondary road program has been
delayed by rain. Tisdale reported, "The,
people are working in preparation, but they
cannot begin any paving until after the rains
stop."
The engineer told the Commission the-
paving contractor was scheduled to begin
work on re-surfacing the Howard Creek Road
Monday of this week, but rains kept him from
starting, .

Commission Finally Gets Ear of DER Representative


Marvin Collins, a representative of
Department of Natural Resources
visited the County Commission Tues-
day night, being the first DNR
representative the Commission has
ever been able to get an eyeball-to-
eyeball confrontation with. Collins
came to Gulf County to get approval for
a permit for the Corps of Engineers to
do maintenance dredging on the
Apalachicola River, but the Commis-
4 sion took advantage of his visit to work
out some deals they wanted on the river
and also to do a little urging for
approval of a dredge permit for Port St.


Joe harbor.
Collins tried to say his purpose of
coming to Gulf County was to secure
the Commission's approval of a river
dredging permit, but he seemed willing
enough to discuss the harbor dredging
and told the Commission a permit for
tnis project would be made within just a
short time.
Collins said, "Representatives from
Department of Natural Resources,
Game and Fish Commission, Parks
Division biologists, U.S. Fish and
Wildlife people and the Corps of
Engineers will all be in Port St. Joe
Tuesday of next week to decide on a


spoil site". The entourage was to have
been in town yesterday for this purpose
but the trip had to be postponed until
next Tuesday.
Commissioner Leo Kennedy asked,
pointedly, "Are you going to approve
one of the three proposed spoil sites?"
Collins replied, "I can't give you a
definite answer on that". The Commis-
sion drew the conclusion from Collins
statements and attitude that one of the
sites would be approved after next
Tuesday's visit.
The dredging spoil site and dredging
permit approval has been under
consideration for nearly a year to


repair dangerous shoaling conditions in
the shipping channel of St. Joseph Bay.
RIVER DREDGING
In the matter of approval for river
dredging, the Commission said they
would approve maintenance dredging
of the present channel, but that they
would not go along with any extension
of the channel, dams or any other
changes in the river, where it runs
through Gulf County.
In approving a resolution to give
assent to the dredge permit, the.
Commission made a super-human
attempt to get something they wanted
out of the Corps.


For the past three years, Commis-
sioner Jimmy Gortman has been on a
crusade to require the Corps of
Engineers to re-open Corley Slough and
Virginia Cut on the Apalachicola River.
The ends of the streams on the river
have been stopped up with dredge spoil
from past work by the Corps on the
river. Gortman has said, "There are
many other places the spoil could be
placed on the river, and I don't see how
they can insist that we re-open Brown's
Creek, which affects only a couple
hundred yards of a small creek, while
they stop up two large streams with
their dredging spoil."


The Corps has said, in the past, it
would re-open the sloughs if the DER
would give a permit.
Collins said that as far as he knew,
the Corps has not filed for such a
permit. He pointed out that this year
was the first time the Corps had to
come to DER for permits to do
anything.
When the dust settled, the Commis-
sion had approved maintenance dredg-
ing of the river as outlined by Collins,
provided they would request the Corps
to re-open the two creeks in question.
Collins said he would do what he cbuld
in the matter.

Assistant Senate Republican
.leader Ted Stevens has said the
recent shake-up in the Carter,
-cabinet indicates that the president
is suffering from mental problems
'and that the possibility of a nervous
'breakdown exists.
Former Treasury. Secretary
'William Simon says he is "un-
istable."
It would be difficult for either
:man to" utter more irresponsible

We see nothing in the recent

mental illness.

accept that.
-Griffin Bell, the former At-

remain friends and because of this-
friendship, Bell wanted out before
the 1980 campaign began.
There appears to be nothing in
all of this that would indicate
mental instability. All of the cabi-
net changes were made for good
reason.
The Stevens-Simon attack
shows not how desperate the presi-
dent is, but how desperate certain
bigwigs are when faced with a
president who had made a mild
resurgence in the polls.
We think the only signs of
mental problems on the part of the
President would have been if he
had ignored the fact that the people
wanted these men to go because
they had lost faith in their deci-
sions. Carter had this responsibility
just as the people will have the
responsibility to judge his effec-
tiveness in 1980.

as if they, 'too, have had enough of
those people who have nothing but
brick-bats for our form of govern-

Dear ETAOIN SHRDLU:
In answer to the letter you
received last week which
ended with the sentence, "By
the way, what does ETAOIN
SHRDLU stand for," my'
definition differs somewhat
from his "Screw Loose Ram-
sey's Piece."
SHRDLU is a chip off the
old Linotype. The first two
vertical rows of keys on a
Linotype are the letters
ETAOIN and SHRDLU. To
fill out and cast a line
containing an error, opera-


tors of older machines used
these, two rows of keys .which
are not only convenient, but
also make the error obvious
to proofreaders.
Created some 44 years ago
when a Penton Linotype oper-
ator offhandedly struck the
keys, SHRDLU might be said
to be the result of happen-
stance. Yet, who among his
skeptics can say with assur-
ance that his own origin was
more?
Veins with printers ink


have aspired SHRDLU to be
an editor and we are fortu-
nate he chose The Star in
Port St. Joe to aim for this
achievement and thereby
achieve this aim.
So, so much for SHRDLU
identity, back to the original


question. SHRDLU stands for
the old American way of
speaking out for what he
thinks is right and opposing
what he believes is wrong,
reporting the news honestly
and fairly and believing with
his heart the future of his

Local

Poet
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
During a recent vacation
trip across the country, it
was my good fortune and
opportunity to spend a few
days in the Port St. Joe area;
and during this period I met
many very fine people. It is
one of the last unspoiled
areas of Florida and I sin-
cerely hope that you folks
will be able to keep it that
way. It is my sincere hope to
be able to return some day in
the near future and perhaps
my stay can be longer.
One of the people that I
met during my visit to Gulf
County is a lady by the name
of Vera Burge. It occurred to
me after reading some of her
poetry that it is most unlikely
that anyone in the area
knows of her inasmuch as she
is a very modest person with
regard to any of her achieve-
ments. Both her poetry and
writing has a basic realism
that many people probably
would think of as being out of
step with our times. But
having shown some of her
work to a few people, I was
pleasantly surprised to find
that their opinion was the
same as mine; and it is a
shame that more people don't
know about her.
It is my experience, having
been exposed somewhat to
the publishing field, that
every newspaper looks for
good common sense, general
interest type editorial mater-
ial. I think Vera Burge and
her writing would be some-
thing you and your readers
would find very interesting.
I have told Vera Burge that
I intended to write to you so
you may feel free to contact
her;. I am 'sure that she will -"
be very pleased' to hear from
you.
Very truly yours,

Verse 34 says "Who can

I THOUGHT I KNEW Frenchie. After all, I
have lived with her for 33 years and I thought
that during that length of time, I knew her
pretty well.
I know just about what time she will go to
bed at night and get up in the morning. I just
about know what she will cook for dinner or
supper on any given day, though in this matter
she surprises me with something different and
good very often. I know that if we go to a
restaurant she will order fried chicken or steak
fillet. If it's seafood, it will usually be shrimp or
a broiled flounder. I know most of the time
what she thinks about things which happen

without even asking.
But something happened last week which
made me wonder. This thing which happened
made me REALLY wonder if I knew her at all.
An envelope came in the mail which was
one of those subscription prize deals. You know
the ploy, "Your name has already been entered
to get our grand prize but your chances will be
greater if you send in a subscription right
away" type of deals.
This particular deal was for Playboy
magazine with a grand prize being "a fortnight
for two in London". The deal went on to offer
"the opportunity for you and your special
playmate to win a two-week romantic rendez-
vous to London, England". I'm reasonably sure
this "special playmate" would have been me if
the offer hadn't come from Playboy.
I didn't know Frenchie's name was on
Playboy's mailing list, which proves I don't
know her quite as well as I though I did. Now, I
have to find out what she ordered from
Playboy in order to get her name on their list.
That might be a real surprise if I ever do
find out.

That's -going to cause problems for some

One of those who will have problems

perturbed about the new guidelines. "They'll

explain that the small air conditioner in his

in order to meet the guidelines, he must go out
.and buy a new, larger air conditioner, in order
to get down to 78.

in trouble. He might get the price of his
product hiked or his allotment cut.

PRESIDENT CARTER is now busily trying
to get Congress on his side in the energy
matter after his now-famous speech the other
Sunday night. He says he has a selling job with
Congress on his hands.
I have faith in the President in this matter.
If he can sell Congress on voting to give away.
the Panama Canal with the great majority of
the people saying, "Don't do it", selling his
energy package to them should be a snap.

ONE LAST WORD: remember back when
we were praying for rain? Remember how dry
it was and the gardens, lawns and creeks were A
drying up? Remember those pleas for mois-
ture?
You got it!

The President's Speech
"...after listening to th
American people I have bee
reminded again that all th
legislation in the world can
fix what. is wrong wit
*America. So I want to speak t
you first tonight about a sul
ject even more serious tha
energy or inflation. I want
talk to you right now about
fundamental threat t
American democracy."
In the first minute of th
President's address on Sunday
July 15, I think he set the ton
for his speech and called attend
tion to the voices which hav
long since noted this shortcon
ing.
It is my opinion thht- th
was President Carter's most ef
. fective speech. I believe thai
for the first time in a long time
a President has candidly
pointed the finger back at th
citizens and sent a message t
each of us. Government exist
to serve the people. Goverr
ment can be effective at solvin
particular problems but it car
not, no matter how many law
it passes, rekindle a spir
which has become almost ex
tinct.
We all say to,one another
that good old America
"know-how" will com
through to solve the problem
Rest assured that I also believe
we have the technological an
intellectual resources to solv
even the worst aspects of of ou
energy shortages. After all, w
did put men on the moon But
in so doing, we always pursued
the goal with an unprecedented
spirit which made sacrifice on
ly a minor hinderance and th
goal our main objective
Somehow we have allowed tha
spirit to be dampened. In orde
to help the country, the fre
world, and ourselves, we mus
again kindle that fire an
remember that short-tern
sacrifice will reap long-tern
benefits: It is time to go front
the "I"' society to the "We'
society. I challenge you to joil
me in this venture.
Specifically, the Presiden
outlined these points:
Point 1 The Presiden
will set import quotas. By do
ing so, the country will bi
forced to meet demand fron
within, either with oil or-alter
natives.
Point 2 The President i
proposing an Energy Security
Corporation to provide fund
for developing alternatives
The Corporation will issue $:
billion in energy bonds for sali


to individuals in sma
denominations.
he point 3 Congress will bi
in asked to mandate that the Na
he tion's utility companies cu
't their massive use of oil by 5001
h within the next decade.
to Point 4 --. Congress will b
b- asked to create an Energ
in Mobilization Board which wi
o have'the responsibility to ex
a pedite the completion of ke
o energy projects.
Point 5 .--: The President
ie proposing a bold energy cod
Y, servation program to involve
ie all governmental entities an
n- each citizen in the energy bat
ve tie. This will include cost
'- effective conservation
measures for the home, stand

f- ty, and a commitment to public
t,. mass transportation.
e. I ask you to consider th
y challenge before us and join
e the President in this battle.' A
o the President said ". .we ar
s the generation that will win th
n- war on the energy problem
g and, in that process, rebuilt

Work Nearing Completion




On City's New Water Plant


Work is about 65 percent complete on the expansion of
the City's new water treatment plant, located on the banks of
the St. Joe Paper Company Canal. Jim Perry, of W.E.D.
Contractors., is shown in the picture below inspecting a new
sludge lagoon of the water treatment plant. The picture at
left shows a new lime column for treating water for softness.
The project was started the first part of this year and will
give the city a capacity of treated water twice what was
available, under the old system. The City is now using an
average of 22 million gallons of water a month, a. volume
which was taxing the old treatment system beyond its
capacity. Also. the-former treatment plant utilized water
from the SJPC fresh water canal for the city supply. This


water source was limited and present day use dictated that a
new source be found. In this expansion program, the City is
converting to water wells. One well has been dug on the site
of the water treatment plant and two wells formerly used by
St. Joe Paper Company, in the vicinity of the treatment plant
are being put back into service to furnish the city.
Treating water from wells is a different operation from
treating surface water. This change in treatment procedures
is a part of the work now underway at the plant site.
The City signed an agreement with St. Joe Paper
Company this week to maintain the supply from their canal
to be used as a standby source should any problems occur in
the future with, the well water system.

Members of the Overstreet
Volunteer Fire Department
appeared before the Board

izing and equipment. The

discussed. The Attorney said
that-no Charter was required.

a fire truck from .the City- of
Port St. Joe on a loan basis

tion to the State Forestry'

performing work on church
property and requested that
this practice be discontinued.
Commissioner Gortman, in
charge of the Road Depart-
ment, said he would take full
responsibility for this type
work in that the County had
always helped all of the
churches in the County. He
said, that to his knowledge,
no citizen had ever objected
to the County helping but on
church property. Manuel said
he was not a member of that
church and he didn't want his
tax money spent for that
purpose. Commissioner Ken-
nedy said he had always
opposed the County helping
out on church property be-
cause such property was
private property and the law
prohibits the use of tax
money on private property.
Commissioner Gortman said
that because Manuel was
against the church being
helped in this manner he
would ask that church to pay
for the work performed and
that in the future, no work
would be done for a church
unless the Board voted that it
be done.

geon, Tax Collector, filed his

sion Service, by letter dated

County Agent, an extension in
employment through July 31,
1979. After consideration, the
Board contacted Mr. Smith at
his Gainesville office by tele-
phone to discuss this request.
Mr. Smith then withdrew his
request and agreed to put
Laird on the State payroll
until his retirement.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Gortman, seconded by
Commissioner Tankersley,
and unanimous vote, the fol-
lowing easements were ac-
cepted:

from Monday through Friday,
in College's E.A. Gardner
Seminar Room.
Before a student may parti-
cipate in the group advising,
the student must have in hand
their placement test scores
and an advising folder, which
may be picked up at the test-
ing office.
Students who have not taken
their placement tests may still
do so at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
weekdays and at 6 p.m. Wed-
niesday evenings in the Office
of Student Services.
The new program for sum-
nmer advising, according to
McCullen, will explain to new
students how the College Cata-
log is used, how class sche-
dules are prepared and how to
register for classes.
"It's a very good opportun-
ity for the new student to learn
about the College programs,
the scheduling of classes and
the College Calendar," she
said, "in addition to the many
other things a student must
know when entering college
life."
McCullen added that the
summer advising sessions will
be "very rewarding to those
who participate because they
will be able to receive the very
important appointment card."
The advantage in receiving
the appointment card early is
that this permits a student to
register earlier, when more
classes will be open.
For more information on the
summer advising program
call the Office of Student Ser-
vices at Gulf Coast.
