arrangement, since it was their feeling
that with two new doctors and a third

Dr. A. W. North opened his practice
of medicine here in Port St. Joe on
Monday of this week, specializing in
Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has his
offices, temporarily, in the south wing
of the Municipal Hospital.
Dr. North is a native of Texas. He
was born in Waxahachie and attended
college at Stephen F. Austin in
Nacagdoches. He received his medical
education at the University of Texas,
Southwestern Medical School in Dallas.
After receiving his M.D., Dr.
North interned at Methodist Hospital
in Dallas and received his Obstetrical

Paul Hospital in Dallas.
Following his internship, Dr. North
served for two years in the U.S. Force,

For the past nine years, Dr. North
has been on the staff of the medical
group of Dickens and Wise in Big Stone
Gap, Virginia, before deciding to get
out into practice on his own.
Dr. North is married and he and his
wife, Sandy, have one son, Brian. At

Charged On Three Counts
Charges of D.W.I., posses-

sion of marijuana with intent
to- distribute, were filed
against Grady Wilbur Butts,
age 32, of 2116 Long Ave., Port
St. Joe, Tuesday morning by
Deputy Joe Johnson, accord-
ing to Sheriff Ken Murphy.
Deputy Johnson along with
auxiliary deputy Jackie Rea-
gan, was patroling St. Joe
Beach at about 1:30 a.m.,
when they stopped a 1976
Oldsmobile and arrested the
driver, Grady Wilbur Butts,
for D.W.I. At the Gulf County
Jail where the vehicle was
inventoried and stored, 20
bags of marijuana was found.
Butts was then arrested for
possession and possession
with intent to distribute.
According to Sheriff Mur-
phy, "Possession of mariju-
ana in excess of 20 grams,.
constitutes a felony." The 20 ,
bags of the weed weighed
approximately 340 grams, or
just under a pound.
Butts was arraigned before
County Judge David Taunton.
Patrick to Offer New
Version of Property Rolls
Gulf County Property Appraiser Sammy
Patrick said this week his office will offer a
counter-proposal to the Department of
Revenue within the next week, increasing the
valuation of taxable property in the county.
Patrick's office had the first edition of the
property valuation rolls turned down by the
Department of Revenue last month as not
being high enough to meet state require-
ments. State law calls for 100 percent
valuation of real and personal property for
Patrick was told the appraisal rolls,
which came to a total of $120 million, was
about 18 percent shy of being acceptable by
All property appraisal rolls for taxing
must be sent to the Department now, for their
approval. With several state funds coming to
individual counties now, the rolls must be up
to the state-mandated 100 percent to qualify
for the state funds.
Patrick told The Star yesterday that his
office is working on a formula which will
increase the valuation of taxable property by
about 20 percent on his rolls. "We hope this
will meet state requirements", Patrick said.
The veteran Property Appraiser said his
office staff is doing the re-evaluation, work
without the aid of outside firms.
While there is no deadline set by the State
Revenue Department for compliance with
their rulings, there can be no taxes levied in
Gulf County this year intil the rolls are
certified by the state. Tax notices are
scheduled to go into the mails by November 1.
The Tax Collector, Harland Pridgeon, has
said his office needs at least 30 days .to
prepare the tax notices.
In light of these time tables, if the
Department of Revenue keeps*turning down
Patrick's rolls, it could be conceivable that
tax bills could be late this year. With late tax
bills it naturally follows that tax payments
could be late also, which would mean that
county and city governments in Gulf County
could face a crisis about December.

its programs are no different.
Getting back to football, which
is the activity nearest at hand, even
a lackluster football game seems
more interesting if there is a big
crowd present to see it. The team
plays better, the excitement is
greater and the kids know you

most important one.
It may be a chore or a sacrifice
on your part to support, personally,
some activity offered by the school

you will make that sacrifice. There
is nothing like personal support.
This has earned Port St. Joe the
reputation in the past as being a
community which follows its teams
and supports its school.

SEPTEMBER IS also the month of The
Star's birthday. This week marks the beginning
of our 43rd year as Gulf County's leading
newspaper. As a matter of fact, today is the first
issue of our 43rd year.
The Star is now middle age. But middle age
has been kind to The Star. It's now stronger than
it has ever been, it has all its teeth, no bunions as
yet and though the same can't be said for the
editor, The Star still has all its hair.
There is little resemblance of The Star of
today as compared to The Star of 43 years ago.
There is a good deal of machinery here at The
Star office, but only two pieces of it were here 43
years ago. All the rest have been changed.
After another 43 years has passed us by, it is
likely there will be none of the machinery here
then which is found here now.
Times change, but the changing times
haven't been a period of debilitation to The Star
like it is to us humans.
BY THE TIME this first edition of the 43rd
year hits the streets this week, Hurricane David
may be breathing down our necks. The big blow
came roaring into the tip of Florida as this was
being written, with 100-mile-per-hour winds.
Some few weeks ago, I predicted the male
gender hurricanes would likely treat us more
kindly than the female gender. Hurricane David
acted just like the female gender when it hit the
Leeward Islands and tore up some territory in
that part of the world. A female friend of mine
reminded me of that the other day, too.
David is aptly named. Remember in the
Bible where it said, "Saul has slain his thousands
while David has slain his ten thousands." David
also leveled many cities during his leadership of
the Hebrews. David is living up to his name.
JOHNIE McCURDY the kindly Methodist
pastor has been given the name similar to Wrong
Way Corrigan. You probably remember Wrong
Way Corrigan. He flew across the Atlantic
during the '30's after being forbidden to do so.
After he landed in England, he gave the excuse
that he lost his way to Cleveland and earned the
name Wrong-Way Corrigan.
Jimmy Cox has given Rev. Johnie the
reputation of not knowing how to find his way
when he starts somewhere.
Recently Johnie went on a vacation to

g6od bit of experience under. its belt.
S"We will have 10 starters and 12
players with playing experience back
from last year's team", Taylor said.
"We lost some good men from
graduation last year, but we have some
ones to puL on thi field this season. We
have the nucleus, of. a good football
team, with .-a lot of seniors returning
who have been"in our program for a
:long time", the coach said.
Even though the Sharks have an
experienced but small team this year,
Sthe scheduling has been shuffled
aroLnd -by T'Floyd Lay, ; executive
.secretary of the Florida High School
Athletic Association, with some drastic
,changes made. In the past, the Sharks
'have 0 had several teams on their
schedule from larger schools, but this is
not so this year. This year's schedule
has been re-shuffled to give the team a
full schedule of schools near the size of
Port St. Joe.
In the schedule change, the Sharks
will no longer-go to DeFuniak Springs,
or Marianna. But that doesn't mean the
travel, distance will be any less. To
replace these games, Lay has schedul-
ed Monticello and Madison, since the
Sharks must play all teams in their
district. Monticello and Madison are
now in the district.
District teams also include Hava-
na, Blountstown, Chipley, Bonifay,
Wakulla and Florida High.
This year, the 16 state districts
, >.have beenr re-.huffled to nly qight
districts to eliminate one of .the four
play-off games at the end of the season.
Chattahoochee, formerly on the
Sharks' schedule, has been reduced to
1-A, so this game was also dropped
from the Shark schedule.
Taylor said Wakulla and Blounts-
town should be the teams to beat in the
new district, even though Monticello is
traditionally a tough team to beat.
The coach said the Sharks are
starting the season with a 22-man
roster. "This is a little below our usual
strength and we will have less depth
than usual, but we feel we have at least
15 first-line players who will be the
nucleus of our squad and will do us a

According to' Dave Vardell,
District Manager, "Schools

Vardell explained that
aluminum recycling enables
students to raise money, im-
prove their environment,
work together, and conserve
natural resources and energy.
The Florida Highway Patrol
recently challenged youthful
drivers to help curb the rising
number of accidents involving
drivers of their age group by
exercising mature judgement
behind the wheel.
"The immber of students
driving cars or motorcycles to
school continues to increase as
a look at school parking lots
will show. The student who
has the privilege of driving to
school must also, accept the
responsibility that accompa-
nies it. Mature judgement is
essential to safe driving," said
Colonel Eldrige Beach, direc-
tor of the Patrol.
During 1978, in the 15 to 19
age group, 18,004 young people
were injured and 110 were
killed in traffic accidents. ,
Selfishness, temper tan-
trums and a showoff attitude
all indicate a lack of self-con-
trol and could be deadly when
a driver takes the wheel. As $
person matures these atti-
tudes should be left behind,
according to Beach.
