Sheriff, Deputies, Harvest $40,000 Crop of Pot


Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy and his deputies
harvested some 100 marijuana plants Monday afternoon, in a
patch found just north of Highland 'View. near the forest fire,
burn which denuded a large amount of. acreage along
Highway 98.
Sheriff Murphy said the healthy eight-foot plants were
located in the edge of the woods near Highland View, near a
small creek, where the pot farmers had riggedup a system to
keep. the plants properly irrigated for fast and healthy'


growth.
Murphy said the St. Joe'Paper Company had moved a
tractor into the area, near the plant farm late last week to do
some reforestation work this week, but that during the week
end, someone or something set the tractor afire. Murphy said
it is a possibility the farmers set the machine on fire to keep
it from plowing up their plot which was just about ready to
harvest. "We'll send that $40,000 worth of pot up in smoke
without anyone getting a high from it", Murphy said. The


Sheriff said his estimate of $40,000 for the illegal crop is based
on the usual harvest of a pound of marijuana to the plant.
Murphy said, "These fellows knew what they were doing.
They had a battery driven pump to pump water from a
near-by creek to water the plants, they had-three 40 pound
bags of peat moss for potting, 50 to 75 planters for young
plants, wading boots, buckets and fertilizer to make their
project easier."
The Sheriff's Department spent most of the afternoon


Monday harvesting the illegal crop of weeds and combing the
area for evidence which might lead to the identification of the
planters.

Murphy stand in the middle of some of the marijuana plants.

Assessors' Roll Rife with Errors-Kilbourn


Wewahitchka resident, Max Kil-
bourn dropped 'a bomb-shell at the
County Commission meeting Tuesday'
morning :when he said there are
evidently many errors in property
descriptions in the Property Apprai-
ser's office. Kilbourn said the errors.
showed up in some tax certificates he
purchased this year and occurred on
five of "seven or eight" certificates
which he.purchased.
The claim by Kilbourn was the
second problem which has faced the
Assessor, Samuel A. Patrick within the
past two weeks. Last week, the
Department of Revenue sent back
Patrick's appraisal roll, claiming the
valuations were not high enough.
Now, Kilbourn claims that many of


the property descriptions on the parcels
assessed are not correct. -,
Kilbourn told the Commission he
had purchased some $14,000 worth of
tax certificates and he has since found
that one piece of property which he has
purchased the certificate for doesn't
even exist according to the description
on the certificate. "Four others have
gross errors which puts them in the
wrong location", Kilbourn said.
What Kilbourn was getting at was
that he thought there were many more
such errors on the appraisal rolls, and
he felt the county should know about it
so they could take steps to get the
errors corrected.
"In'all likelihood, the person who
owns' this piece of property I'm talking


about didn't'pay his taxes because the'
description on the statement wasn't his
property. What's going to happen when
it comes time for me to collect my 18
percent interest on these certificates?
It will be up to the county to pay it
because there is no such piece of
property and no owner", Kilbourn
pointed out.
Kilbourn said he could see where
the county could get itself in for several
considerable lawsuits if the correct
descriptions aren't placed on property
which has taxes levied against it. "A
person may be entirely within his rights
for not paying taxes on an improperly
described piece of property."
Attorney Fred Witter, sitting in for


William J. Rish, who was on vacation,
offered the opinion that the corrections
should be made, "but I would be of the
opinion that if a person owns property,
he knows there are taxes levied against
it and he does owe taxes, even though
the description to his property might be
in error on.his tax bill."
Kilbourn pointed out that one piece
of property described on one of his
purchased tax deeds was a portion of
Pig Island. "Pig Island is in a national
wildlife preserve and immune to
taxation", Kilbourn stated. "Who's
going to pay the taxes I paid for this


piece of property plus the lawful 18
percent interest for the tax deed? The
county?" Kilbourn made this example
to point out what kind of trouble he felt
the county could get itself into unless
Sthe some 500 errors he felt were on the
appraiser's roll were corrected.
Kilbourn pointed out, "I believe
you're going to find 500 pieces just like
this. Jerry Gates and I went to all the
trouble of looking at the original deeds
of these pieces of property on the deed
books and the descriptions are correct
in the deed book. They are not correct
on the appraisal roll for taxing


purposes."
Kilbourn declared, "It's a dead
serious business, and I will be happy to
cooperate in getting it all straightened
out."
Clerk George Y. Core said the law
allows the Commission the right to
purchase the tax certificates back from
Kilbourn to prevent any trouble, but,
that this maneuver wouldn't prevent
some similar occurrences happening in
the future. Core pointed out that the
certificates were now earning Kilbourn
18 percent interest by law 18 percent
the county may have to pay.


Dr. Vazquez Resigns from Hospital


New Wewa Ambulance



Needs Intensive Care


Yesterday morning, Dr. Jo-
seph Vazquez told Municipal
Hospital Administrator, Rich-
ard Zyski, he would no longer
be affiliated with the Hospital
as Emergency Room physi-
cian for the week end.


Vazquez' action came after
he was handed a letter from
the Hospital Administrator
advising Vazquez the Board of
Directors were having to
terminate the service due to a
lack of funds.


The Board of Directors had
approached the Gulf County
Commission for aid in financ-
ing the ER service for the
week ends, and keeping Dr.
Vazquez, but the County said
its financial picture would not


allow it to contribute.
Vazquez was notified yes-
terday the Hospital would
have to curtail the service
after next week end, but
Vazquez elected to terminate
the relationship immediately.


Wewahitchka is having
trouble with its new ambu-
lance and they want -to get it
(,*fixed or replaced. According
to County Commissioner Jim-
my Gortman, "The ambu-
lance has already had its
second motor pat in, the
transmission is falling out, the
electrical system is shot and it
leaks oil bad." All this in a
vehicle which is less than a
year old.
Gortman said the county
has taken the vehicle to an
area General Motors dealer


for repairs and, "They just
keep it for a week and send it
right back home like it was to
begin with."
Gortman brought the
charge at the opening gun of
the County Commission meet-
ing Tuesday, saying, "I would
like to see our attorney get on
the phone and resolve this
'problem while we are in
session today."
Attorney Fred Witten did
Gortman's bidding and later
in the meeting reported he had
called Whiting Andrews, di-


rector of the state emergency
system. The county had pur-
chased the vehicle from the
state pool. Andrews called the
GM complaint division and
registered the complaint in
Birmingham. He called back
to say he had the assurance of
GM's Birmingham depart-
ment that they would stand
behind their guarantee. An-
drews said, "If they don't do
something soon, let us know
and the state will sue for
satisfaction.
In the meantime, the new


Port St. Joe Couple Has Baby


Kidnapped from Bay Hospital


Port St. Joe has had its
"firsts" lately. Two weeks
ago, the Florida First Nation-
al Bank was robbed and last
Wednesday evening, the
daughter of a Port St. Joe
couple was kidnapped.
Last Wednesday evening, at
six p.m., little Heidi Elizabeth
Thomas, two day old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert
Thomas was kidnapped from
the nursery of Gulf Coast
Community Hospital in Pan-
ama City. The infant was
abducted by Angela Speights
/ McNeally, 17, of Marianna,
&ho was despondent over the
recentt loss of her own child.
Ms. McNeally had entered
the hospital, gone to the ma-
ternity floor, and asked the


maternity ward nurse to let
her hold the Thomas infant.
When the nurse refused, Ms.
McNeally offered the nurse
money, and then pulled a
revolver, which had been con-
cealed in her purse. Ms. Mc-
Neally left the hospital, using
the stairs, reaching the park-
ing lot. She requested a ride to
the bus station from a man
waiting for his wife in a
parked car. Just as she placed
the baby in the car, she was
apprehended by a nurse and
security officer, who had been
alerted.
Miss McNeally was arrested
and held without bond, due to
the serious nature of the
crime. She is being held in the
Youth Detention Center of


Panama City.
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas were
unaware that their baby had
been kidnapped until the epi-
sode was over. Mrs. Thomas,
the former Barbara Alexan-
der of Port St. Joe, is still very
nervous about the situation,
according to her husband,
Gilbert.
In an interview yesterday
morning, Mr. Thomas said,
"We are grateful to God that
we still have our baby. We
can't get enough of holding
her, realizing what might
have been. We fear that if Ms.
McNeally had gotten to the
bus station, we would never
have seen our baby again".
Ms. McNeally had a bus
ticket to New York.

LAND FILL PROBLEM
The County Commission of-
ficially received its notice of
violation from Department of
Environmental Regulation
Tuesday, giving the county 30
days to come up with garbage
disposal plans and. 180 days to
begin shutting down four of
five landfill operations in the
county.
Tommy Pitts, Mosquito
Control Supervisor, who op-
erates the landfill sites noted,
"They have a mistake in their
order. They cite us to close
four garbage pits. We don't
operate pits, we cover up the
garbage daily in an entirely
different type operation."
Commissioner Leo Kennedy
suggested that the Board
write the DER for an exten-
sion of the 30 day period for up
to 12 months in order to enable
the county to come up with a
plan and financing. "We don't
have anything in this year's
budget for this problem and
there is no place to get it
from."
Chairman Branch wanted to
go along with a letter written
to DER by attorney William J.
Rish which explained that the
county had already agreed to
close the landfill operations
which were now operating on
a temporary permit, while the
county works out an accept-'
able plan.
Rish's letter went on to say
the county is now looking at

"Public Servant" Should


be Reprimanded


The more we think about it, the
S more chagrined we become.
For the past week it has been
'boiling inside us that a representa-
.tive of the Department of Com-
merce, one Mark Thompson by
name, could get away with saying
".we can't put dredge spoil inside the
S 'beach at the St. Joseph Peninsula,
."Because I don't want it there."
How can a public servant get
:away with telling his employers
that?
If Thompson had a valid reason,
.;such as a rare and particular breed
Z of animal living in the proposed
":dredge spoil site, he may have a
.valid reason for being so obstinate,
'but to say, "Because I don't want it
S there", when local officials are
"'asking a valid question as to just
Swhy this particular spot can't even
; be considered, is just being plain
7< .rogant on the part of Mr.
Shompson.

same type material would be placed
in the spot as is presently there. Only
a pouting, sarcastic, demagogic,
"Because I don't want it there".
At least the state environmental
people and the Corps of Engineers
gave sensible reasons for their
denial of proposals and offered to
seek out a solution. They expressed a
willingness to work with local
interests to find a solution to a real
problem.
But all Mr. Thompson could
come up with is, "Because I don't
want it there".
We think it proper that Mr.
Thompson's superiors be notified of
his attitude, his unwillingness to give
his assistance to local interests, his
apparent disregard for anything
except his wishes.
An environmentalist such as
Mr. Thompson is the kind which
give all environmentalists a bad
name and will cause this nation to
rebel against a very real and earnest
effort to work together in this nation
to preserve our national resources.
If we preserve to the point of not
using, we had just as well go ahead
and use them up and do without
them in the future. With Mr.
Thompson's attitude we will never
use our resources anyhow.

alternatives three years ago, put the
price tag at about $150,000 then. It
would be more now.
With the county and the cities
-nowlstraining-to meet their budgets
under the current revenue and still
do everything the state tells us to do
in several areas, it will be a puzzle of
immense proportions to see just how
we will pay for this newest mandate.
But it's either conform or face a
$10,000 a day fine from the state.
Our land fill program for
disposing of garbage has .operated
very efficiently in the past and there
is no reason to believe it will be
any different in the future. There has
been no indication of pollution from
any of the sites.
Should the county grow, we can
see where we might have problems
in garbage disposal. Until that time
comes, we can see no reason why we
can't go along with a system which
has been effective and which we can
afford.


Gas Company Extending Services to Beach


St. Joe Natural Gas Com-
pany is extending its natural
gas distribution lines to the
beaches area in order to
assure more gas for this area,
owner Cecil Costin, Jr., told


the Rotary Club last Thursday
at their regular meeting.
Costin said there is plenty of
gas for domestic use, but
interruptible gas, that which
goes to industry or manufac-


turning is allocated on a
percentage of domestic gas
used in any given area. "This
move will give us more gas for
our interruptible customers",
Costin said.


Same "MO's" Used Here Seen

On Central Fla. Bank Thefts


The Gulf County Sheriff's
Office and the Port St. Joe
Police Department still
have not made an arrest in
the case of the burglarized
bank here in Port St. Joe.
The robbery, which occur-
red nearly two weeks ago is
still not solved.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said
the law enforcement agen-
cies have some suspects,
but have made no arrests
to date.
Murphy said his depart-
ment has since learned that
a bank was burglarized in
Gainesville a month ago
using the same method of
entry and taking the
coin change, just as they
did here.
Murphy said the Sun
Bank of Ocala was entered
just this past week: again,
with the thieves entering
the building through a
window, taking change


- from the teller's cages and


travellers checks.


A Layman's View


Bible Notes
By BILLY NORRIS


John 10:11-14 (KJV)
Key Word: Jesus, the good
shepherd
(V.11) "I am the good
shepherd: the good shepherd
giveth his life for .the sheep.
(V. 12) But he that is a
hireling and not the shepherd,
whose own the sheep are not,
seeth the wolf coming, and
leaveth the sheep, and fleeth:
and the wolf catcheth them,
and scattereth the sheep.
(V. 13) The hireling fleet,
because he is a hireling, and


careth not for the sheep.
(V. 14) I am the good
shepherd, and know my sheep,
and am known of mine."
Jesus himself is speaking in
this passage of scripture. He is
always very careful to explain
even the smallest detail of His
plan to His sheep, His follow-
ers. He wants us to fully
understand who He is to us. He
is the Good Shepherd. He
loved us and freely gave His
life for us.

Costin also said the Public
Service Commission is citing
his firm because it is making
too much return on its invest-
ment, "even though they
recognize we have the lowest
gas rates in Florida", and the
expansion will be a vehicle to
come more into line with the
PSC's earnings-investment
ratio. "We have never raised
our rates, except for the
increase in the price of gas
delivered to us," Costin said.
Costin said the firm now

never have died for us. But
praise God He is our Shepherd
and when He came, allowed
Himself to be born a bonafide
human, walked the earth as a
man and experienced what
Satan (the wolf) was doing to
His people He did something
about it!
He allowed His life to be
taken on the cross so He could
descend in death whip Satan
once and for all and return to
give His people (the sheep)
the power He obtained back
from Satan which Adam had
given him, Satan.
Jesus wants us to know He is
our good shepherd and that He
knows each of us and that we
know Him and will not be
deceived by a false spirit of
Satan. We are assured by His
word that we who Ore born

therms a year, which allows
them to receive one to one and
a half million therms of

and plans are to proceed on as
far as Mexico Beach'in the

A NEWS ARTICLE in the paper last Friday
pointed out that several Democratic Senators
were getting nervous about keeping their jobs in
the Senate. Some of them had been there quite a
while such as George McGovern, Frank Church,
Birch Bayh, John Durkin, Warren Magnuson,
Mike Gravel, Tom Eagleton and Florida's Dick
Stone.
There were others on the list, but these men
are household words here in Florida and over
most of the nation. One thing they have in
common, with maybe the exception of Senator
Stone, is that they are all died-in-the-wool
liberals. The article said these long-time
members of the Senate are fearful of the
conservative trend.which seems to be sweeping
the nation.
The only liberal Senator which does not seem
to be running scared is Teddy Kennedy and even
he is getting nervous because of the fact that he
faces the possibility of being the minority leader
of two important committees rather than the
majority leader as he has in the past.
Senator Richard Stone can't be classified as
a liberal, but he is in trouble here in Florida
because of his vote to give away the Panama

Senator Stone told the people of Florida he
voted as he did because of the knowledge he was
privy to which made it in the best interest of the
nation to vote as he did.
Many people here in Florida feel that if his )
vote, detrimental to the wishes of the majority of
the people, was so important to the future of the
nation, they deserve to know what these reasons
are.

MORE BUREAUCRACY was forced on Gulf
County last week when the state Department of
Revenue insisted that Gulf County's Tax
Assessor Samuel A. Patrick raise the value of
real property in the county to come more in line
with what the state has declared to be a realistic
valuation of property for tax purposes.
Here in Gulf County we get along with what
we have. There's not much sense in raising the
valuation of property, since state law, again,
prevents an increase in taxes of more than five
percent. If you can't levy more taxes (and who
wants to, anyhow?) there seems to be no reason
to increase property values.
Another case of bureaucracy strangling the
smaller counties -and cities. Mandated programs
now have the smaller counties and cities in such
a financial strain they can barely breath, just
financing programs they have dreamed up.

THE BALTIMORE COLTS are making
noises like they want to move their professional
football franchise to Jacksonville. They will
consider it, that is, if Jacksonville will sign over
half the city to them.
If the deal is worked out, that will give
Florida three professional football teams. Only.

Questions On


Auto Insurance


Automobile insurance pre-
,miums may be financed
through an agent with a
premium finance company
that is licensed by the Depart-
ment of Insurance.
The following question and
answer illustrates what can
happen should a payment not
be made on time and is
included in the Department's
new "Florida Consumers'
Guide to Auto Insurance":
My premiums were finan-
ced but my policy was can-
celled and the premium re-
fund was less than I expected.
Why?
If a payment is late, a
premium finance company,
under a power of attorney, will
have the' insurance company.
cancel your policy. A refund of
unused premium is made to
'the finance company which,


in turn, refunds to you what is
left after deducting service
fees, late charges and interest
charges.
When financing the pre-
miums, ask your agent about
fees and charges, just as you
would on a loan from a bank.
To avoid cancellation of your
policy, be sure to pay the
premium to the finance corn
pany by the due date.

- Dr. Robert Livingston Says Alabama and Georgia



Have "Made A Mess" of Their Major Waterways


,i.Alabama and Georgia ought to sweep
around their own front doors before
trying to tell Florida how to manage its
i"vers, says Dr. Robert "Skip" Living-
' stn, an outspoken Florida State
University biologist.
Florida's northern neighbors have
'"made a mess" out of their major
Waterways, and should not be allowed
.to have any role in formulating
Florida's river, management policies,
Livingston said.
,'"They've been so interested in our
rivers, mainly the Apalachicola, that I
think it's time we stopped and had a
look at what they've done with their
Lown rivers," said the professor.
Livingston cited 19 examples of
",severe contamination" by municipal
and industrial wastes and urban runoffs
along the Chattahoochee and Flint
rivers. He said he took all -his
information from a report released last
-'" '' 'T '


year by the Georgia Department of
Natural Resources.
"None of these conclusions are my
own," Livingston said. "This report
from the Georgia DNR spells out
exactly what happens when you start to
dam and industrialize a river."
The Florida State biologist called the
Georgia DNR report "proof positive
that monied interests can get around
anti-pollution laws." He said the report
gives a graphic picture of what
Floridians can expect if up-river
interests have their way in controlling
the future of the/Apalachicola River.
- The report contains a list of water
analyses conducted at numerous points
along both the Chattahoochee and Flint
rivers. The analyses, show various
degrees of such pollutants 'as heavy
metals, fecal bacteria, hot water and
industrial cherficals being dumped into
the rivers. Livingston quoted the


report's descriptions of the sampling
cites, which ranged from "degraded
water quality" to "grossly polluted." '.
Livingston's comments came on the
' heel. of a meeting of the governors of
Alabama, Georgia and Florida in
Atlanta. They discussed U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers proposals to
increase the Apalachicola River's
capacity to handle barge traffic. The
Corps plan is backed primarily by
Alabama and Georgia business inter-
ests along the Flint and Chattahoochee
rivers, which join to form the Apalachi-
cola.
Gov. Fob, James of Alabama and
Gov. George Busbee of Georgia agreed
to oppose plans to dam or channelize
the Apalachicola while Florida's Gov.
'Bob Graham agreed to extend the
Corps' dredging permit for another
year. To keep the river deep enough for
barge traffic, maintenance dredging of


the Apalachicola has been going on for Chattahoochee
about 50 years. in. They use th
Livingston expressed dissapointment of commodity
in the meeting, saying that the trade-off newsprint. Fo:
agreement largely missed "the main of many of th(
issue," which is "that the river is being Tri-Rivers De
neglected" in terms of finding long-last- has pushed fo
ing ways to preserve it from irrespon- Apalachicola R
sible use. for barge traff
"If dredging is going to continue,
we've got to find out if it is really
economically and environmentally
justifiable. So far, there's never been a
proper study of it."
Dams severely reduce a river's
natural ability to rid itself of pollutants,
Livingston said. Seventeen locks and
dams are built along the Chattahoo-
chee's 250 mile length.
Dams also control a river's water
level, which is what agricultural and
other business interests along the

Insurance Needed


To Boost Medicare


Many people who have pro-
tection under Medicare hospi-
tal insurance and medical in-
suiance believe they need
private medical insurance to
complement Medicare, David
Robinson, Social Security Re-
presentative for Gulf County,
said recently.
These people want some
kind of insurance to pay. that
part of the cost of their
medical care not covered by
Medicare. Private insurance
companies offer many differ-
ent. policies.
Generally, these policies
make payment for the Medi-
care deductibles and the por-
tion of approved costs which
Medicare does not pay, Robin-
qon said.
Most private Medicare sup-
plements, very much like
. Medicare, do not pay the
entire bill for every service.
Nor do they usually make
payments for the expenses
which Medicare pays.
Of course, Robinson said,
some policies are better than
others. And, some policies
that cost more may not be
better than those which cost
less.
Like, any decision to buy
something important, the best
shopper will probably get the
best policy for his or her own
situation, Robinson said.
In 1979, the Medicare hospi-
tal insurance deductible is
$160 for each benefit period.

Fla. Power Offering


Energy Saving Device


With the water heater the
third largest consumer of
electricity in the average
household (behind air condi-
tioning and heating), Florida
Power Corporation is offering
its customers a hot water
saving device which could
save a family of four up to $20
annually on their power bills.
The offer is being made
currently with August bills
and is. being made without
charge.
Called a water restrictor,
. the device is a dime-sized,'
dome-shaped stainless steel
disc with a hole in the middle.
It fits easily between. the
shower head and the water
pipe. The size of the hole in the
disc cuts down on the amount
of. water which goes through
.the shower head but by
squeezing the water through
the smaller hole, the overall
pressure remains just about
the same:
It can cut the amount of
shower water used by up to 60
percent and, in reducing the
amount of water used, effects
a doubled conservation both of
electricity and of water.
Customers can obtain a free
flow, ,estrictor by returning
the address card that accom-
panies their bills. The compa-
ny has approximately 600,000
residential customers,.


U


The offer, which expires, on
September 30, is being made
as a part of the company's
continuing energy conserva-


tion program which includes
booklets, brochures, demon-
strations, films, filmstrips and
speakers.

Collecting Social Security and Working

Part-time? Watch Gross Earnings


This is the time of year when
the earnings of many working
people who receive social
.security benefits are ap-
proaching the point where
their benefits may be affected,
David Robinson. Social Secur-
ity Representative for Gulf
County. said recently.
Once a person's earnings
-exceed the annual limit, $1 in
benefits is generally withheld
for each $2 of earnings. The
1979 annual limits are $3,480
for people under 65 and $4,500


for people 65 or over.
Many people getting bene-
fits plan to earn no more than
the limit but for one reason or
another, their earnings exceed
it and they have to repay
benefits that were incorrectly
paid.
That is the reason, Robinson
said, people should take a
little time to review their
earnings for the first part of
1979 and make sure of where
they stand.
One thing people should


keep in mind is that gross
earnings, not just take home
pay, count towards the annual
limit. Remembering this point
will keep many people from
going over the limit, Robinson
said.
Another important point is
that it is when wages are
earned, not paid, that decides
whether they should be count-
ed. For example, wages earn-
ed late in 1979. but not paid
until 1980, count toward the
1979 annual limit. By the same


token, wages earned late in
1978 but not paid until 1979, do
not count toward the 1979
limit.
More information about how
earnings affect social security
benefits can be found in the
leaflet, "If you work after you
retire." Copies can be obtain-
ed at the Panama City social
security office, located at 30
W. Government Street. The
telephone number is 769-4871.

Where Is the


Spanish Moss?


An out-of-state visitor re-
cently wrote to the Florida
Division of Forestry to ask,
"what has happened to the
Spanish moss?" She had no-
ticed that it was much less
abundant this year than on
previous trips to the Sunshine
State.
It's true that Spanish moss,
which is a rootless air plant
and not a parasite as many
people believe, has been suf-
fering a blight in areas
throughout the Southeast. It is
also not a moss but a member
of the pineapple family, but
under any name it seems to be
integral to the deep-south look.
prized by natives and visitors
both. In Florida the blight
began ten years ago in a
narrow band running from
Bradenton northeastward to
Jacksonville, with Gainesville
one of the hardest-hit areas.
The affected moss blackens
and dies on the tree, and
residents have proposed a
number of causes, especially
air pollution. Sulfur emissions
from cars and factories, as
well as a number of other
possibilities, were given close
scrutiny during attempts to
halt the blight.
But- researchers at the Uni-
versity of Florida Institute of


Food and Agricultural Scien-
ces, while agreeing that envi-
ronmental factors could cer-
tainly contribute to the dam-
age, also managed to isolate a
fungus that appears to be the
primary cause. There is no
known treatment for the fun-
gus, called Fusarium solani,
but their research report does
end on a hopeful note.
The blight apparently
reaches epidemic proportions
in a given area and then
gradually disappears after
about four years. In Gaines-
ville, the dieback reached its
peak in the early '70s and
today the Spanish moss is
almost back to normal. Even
during the height of the
infestation, healthy shoots
could be seen growing from
diseased stems.
So the problem may be only
temporary even though the
disease continues to spread to
new areas in. Florida. "We
believe 'that healthy Spanish
moss will continue to grow in
many blighted areas," con-
cludes the report, "but its
relatively slow growth sug-
gests that several years must
elapse before Spanish moss
again provides the weird
decoration of many trees in
the Southeastern United
States."

Program
The Panhandle Alcoholism
Council's women's program is
now in its tenth month.
Known as AWARE (A Wo-
man's Alcohol Recovery Ef-
fort), the project was specifi-
cally designed to provide in-
novative services to women
alcoholics. Recognizing that
alcohol-troubled women have
special problems and needs,
AWARE offers both in-patient
and out-patient therapy.
Located in a two-story brick
home about three miles out-
side of the Panama City
limits, the AWARE house has
facilities for up to eight clients
in its 28-day residential treat-
ment program. Group and in-
dividual counseling, antabuse
therapy, and attendance at
Women for Sobriety and AA
area treatment tools used to
help the women clients return
to their families or move
toward independent living in
the community.

In Area
Individual, marriage, and
family counseling on an out-
patient basis is also offered to
any woman who is concerned
about her drinking, as well as
to her family.
The AWARE staff, mostly
women, is comprised of pro-
fessionals, some of who are
themselves recovering alco-
holics. The staff includes four
counselors, two house super-
visors, and several interns
from local colleges, all dedi-
cated to providing supervised,
supportive, educational, and
therapeutic services to the
clientele.
AWARE is designed to serve
women with alcohol problems
in the counties of Gulf, Bay,
Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson
and Washington. For further
information or assistance,
contact the local office of the
Panhandle Alcoholism Coun-
cil at 321 Reid Avenue, Port St.
Joe, 227-1515.
