-Two Gulf Officials In


doubleble with Agency'

T woof Gulf County's public officials were rudely notified
life last weekthat they were in trouble 'with the state Ethics
Coniiii ission in regards to their declaration of net worth
statements.
he two officials, Superintendent of'Schools, Walter
Wfld6r and County Commissioner Doug Birmingham, were
notified while watching the television news late last week
iat their statements had not been properly filed with the
Commission. Both said they had no prior knowledge of their
difficulties with the Commission.
Wilder said Tuesday, "Hiled my declaration just as I
was directed to do. When I learned I was in trouble with the
Commission I telephoned them to see what the problem was.
I found out that my statement had not been properly
notarized." The School Superintendent continued with a note
oi s arc'Asm. in his voice, "I have been in the school business
for about 20 years, so you know I had amassed a considerable
portion of this world's wealth to report."
Birmingham said Tuesday he, too, had turned in his
report just as the law requires. "I found out that my report
had: not been notarized and there were some mistakes in
fi officers said they
illitig in someof the blanks", he said. Both
have now corrected the errors on their reports and submitted
tliem correctly hopefully.
Both officers seemed to be.disturbed to be informed of
4ke deficiencies in their reports in the manner they were.
'Ve should have been the first to know, it seems to me",
Birmingham said.

County, anil the Red Cross is

contact the Red Cross about
supplying food should the
storm hif here, but he felt
something definite should be
decided on feeding refugees
and suggesled jhe Wewa-
hitchka' school cafeterias be
used for'this purpose.
The Board then sent for
Superintendent of Schools,
Walter Wilder to discuss the
matter further.
Wilder told the Commission
the school cafeterias could.,
furnish food, since their prep-
aration equipment ran on gas
and there would be no danger
of power faildre cutting off the
supply. "The meals might not
be balanced", he said, "s.ince
-what -we have on hand is
mostly commodities".
Wilder said the schools
would provide some problem
as. a shelter. "There's no
windows there. and if the
power goes off the people will
be uncomfortable due to lack
of air circulation and the
buildings would be dark, even
in the day time7.'
Murphy said his department
had several generators and
lights, of a sort, could be
rigged up to provide some
relief.

Wilder said the schools
could handle up to 1500
refugees, but warned that the
facilities might be a little
uncomfortable due to the
problems he had outlined.
SOME FLOODING
In the meantime, Sheriff
Murphy told The Star at 11:00
yesterday that the best infor-
mation he could obtain fr6m
the weather bureau in Apa-
lachicola was that the storm
would just graze this area.
"I'm informed we can expect
up to 20 to 30 knot gusts and
not over 50 knot gusts",
Murphy said. He pointed out,
however. that the hurricane
was still some 175 miles from
la.nd at that time.
Some side effects from the
hurricane were already being
felt here yesterday morning,
as the tidal water rose across
the bridge in front of McNeill's
Store at Indian Pass, which
gives access to Indian Pass
Peninsula. As a result of the
flooding, the schools released
the children of families who
lived on the Peninsula to allow
them to go be with their
families. Murphy said the
water was almost across the
St. Joseph State Park Road
just north of the Ughthouse,
near the familiar "stump
hole" area adjacent to the
road.

W ewa Elects



Two Women


Wewahitchka elected three
new City Commissioners last
Tuesday. There's nothing un-
usual about that, but it is
unusual that Wewahitchka
should elect two ladies to its
city government. ,
Less than 50 percent of the
City's 1100 registered electors
went to the polls, but they cast
their votes in heavy majority
for the three winners.
In Commission Group 1,
Angie Whitfield soundly de-
feated Haywood Borders, 470
to 157 to win election.
In Group Two, Terry Linton,
the only man to win, in the
three races, polled 385 votes to
defeat incumbent Commis-
sioner Bob Davis, who polled
156 votes.
In Group 4, Mrs. Faye Cox
was a big winner over Jack
Husband, Jr. Cox had 418
ballots cast in her favor as


opposed to 109 for Husband.
Mrs. Cox won only a one year
term, since she is running for
an incomplete term vacated
recently.
Haywood Borders was ap-
pointed to the Group 4 seat to
serve until the next election,
but elected to try for a full
term seat in Group 1.
Claude Lister was the in-
cumbent -in Group 1, but
elected not to seek re-election
for health reasons, after
spending 24 years on the
Commission.
A question on the ballot
proposed allowing the City
Commission to set its own
salary.schedule, up to $150.00
per month. This question
failed by a vote of 244 to 117.
The three new Commis-
sioners will take office on
October 2 and will serve three
year terms.

A meeting of the non-aligned

for the purpose of strengthening an

The purpose of the meeting was

United States and its policies' all

'effect, urged the non-aligned nations
to align themselves against the
: United States and, in effect, becom-

The response received by Cas-

Over 3 Billion Trees


Planted In Last 50 Years


Last winter, 50 years of
reforestation work in Florida
passed a significant mile
stone.
The number of seedling
trees planted since records-
keeping began in 1928 passed
the-three billion mark..
This information, in a new
report by the Division of
Forestry, also highlights the
fact that about 110 million
seedlings were planted last
year alone, continuing an
accelerated planting pace that
began several years ago.
State Forester John Bethea
says Florida for many years
has ranked at or near the top
of the states in reforestation
plantings. But he says an even
greater effort is needed now to
be sure that enough trees area
available to supply our peo-
ple's needs for paper and
other forest items 25 and more
years from now.
The demand will double or
triple during the coming quar-
ter-century, even without
counting the likely demand on


to melt a stone statue. He is an equally rabid
Seminole fan, even to the point of rivaling
Jerry's affinity for the Gators.
.Last week, Jerry was feeling his oats one
morning and slipped into Judge Bodiford's
chambers and put a Gator poster behind his
chair, along with a few choice posters for. his
human diety, Charley Pell, and some pictures of
the Gators doing un-Gator-like things on the
football field.
Jerry just knew he had put one over on Judge
Bodiford.
Later in the day, when he heard no
repercussions from his actions, Jerry sent one of
the clerks out of his office on an errand to the
Judge's,office ... to see just how he was taking
the little prank. The secretary came back to
report. that nothing was going on. "Somebody


forests for wood fuels as an
alternate to imported petro-
leum. That is an entirely new
factor that is becoming ever
more important as oil fuels
increase ,n price andl. grow
.shorter in supply..-.
The milWlons oP' seedlings
planted yearly in our state are
vitally necessary to supply
raw materials to wood-using
industries that employ more
than 35,000 people and supply
more than $3 billion to the
state's economy. Most of the
seedlings were planted, as
might be expected, by the'
commercial tree-growing
companies that use them for
paper-making, timber and
similar products.
The smaller, private land-
owner with only a few acres,
or a few hundred acres, might
be overlooking a bet now if he
lets any land lie idle that could
be growing trees for him.
The pride of owning a few
acres of fine woodland is
well-known to most of us. Well
understood, too, are the many


other benefits of the trees in
freshening and cooling the air,
in maintaining plenty of pure
ground water, in screening out
undesirable sounds and sights,
incontrolling erosion, in sup-
plying; shade,a nd beautifying
the countryside, and not in,
the least in adding tremen-
dously to the sale value of land
for residential development.
All these reasons are strong
enough to persuade many
private landowners. But now
there is the additional one of a
virtually guaranteed heavy
market demand for wood
fibers in the future.
To encourage forest man-
agement by the private land-
owner, the Florida Division of
Forestry has a whole range of
assistance programs that are
available to anyone, whether
the planting of a handful or a
hundred thousand trees are
involved.
For information on all these
programs, contact one of the
Division's State District For-
estry offices in your area.


must have removed the literature before the
judge came in", she said.


BUT SOMETHING went on before the day
was over.
Judge Bodiford, like I said, takes his
Seminoles seriously, and anyone who takes
Seminoles seriously has a natural affinity for
anything which smells like a Gator.
Judge Bodiford and Jerry got along very
well together until Jerry began to get fiesty with
his pictures and posters. But times have now
changed.
Rising to the bait, the Judge drew up a
summons for Jerry, charging him with "Dese-
crating the Judge's chambers with obscene
material". A summons was then drawn up and
given to Sheriff Ken Murphy to serve on Jerry,
calling for him to appear in court.
The next morning, one of the Sheriff's
deputies served the paper on Gates, who, for one
time in his life didn't have a reply to make. One
would have to know Jerry and his handiness with
words in such matters to really appreciate his
speechless condition.

JERRY WAS ADVISED by his friends and

ular passage King Asa had


fellow Gators, principally attorney Fred
Witten, that what the Judge had done was not a
prank, it was serious business. Jerry was
advised to appear on the date stated on the
summons and be ready to defend the charges.
Witten was then pressed into service and
drew up a defense for the now-repentant Gator.
He drew up his defense along the lines that
nobody had seen Gates enter the Judge's office,
so nobody could actually say or prove that he had
placed the "'obscene material" in the Judge's
office. Fred pleaded, "So, in this case, we ask
that the charges be dropped since a man cannot
be tried unless the court can prove guilt."
The Judge answered that in such cases as
this, it is up to the perpetrator to prove his
innocence.

NOBODY KNOWS whether or not Jerry is
out of the woods in this thing yet. Possibly the
case will be continued until after the Florida-
FSU game, at which time the matter will be
brought back before the court for further study,
with the game's outcome having a distinct
bearing on the case.

WHAT ALL THIS points out is that you may
tie a tin can to the tail of a man's cat, you may
kick his dog, you might even get away with
scratching his car or flirting with his wife. But
you should never, never, tease a serious fan
about his football affiliation.
Some things in a man's life are just beyond
the kidding stage. It's like this with Judge Larry
Bodiford and his FSU Seminoles.
I'm even taking a chance writing, this
column. I hope he is recovered from Jerry's
actions enough to forgive my words.

Congress Reconvenes


After spending a very active
month of August with you in
the'District, I am now back in
the thick of things here in
Washington, D.C. As many of
the papers have, pointed out,
mnd. I have discussed in this col-
S umn before, the Congress will
not Want for challenge these
next few months. The issues
are still with us and the various
interest'groups have wasted no.
time flooding the office with
S cards, letters, and visits. It is
business as usual again.
I have found, however,
upon my return to D.C. that
the mood seems to be more
political than before. The
scheming of various factions to
block the key legislation before
us has intensified and I am
disturbed by the failure in cer-
'.. tain quarters to even consider,
the question of what is right
for the nation in lieu of what is
right for "me." My hope is .
that, when the time comes to
make the really tough deci-
sions, the right considerations
Will be made to the benefit of
,r 'the nation and the serious
' problems facing us.
In particular, legislation
concerning energy will be at the
top of ou' consideration list. A
few measures were passed or
debated before the August
break, but the more difficult
items remairr for final comple-
tion.
The recent reports of Rus-
sian troops being stationed in
Cuba have certainly brought
the question of Russian objec-
tives to the forefront again. In-
deed, I find it unbelievable
that, at a critical, time in the
a SALT II debates, the Soviets
would make such a bold move.
I hope that this revelation will
shock even the more liberal
members of the Congress into
"re-thinking" the Defense
budget for FY80.
Additionally, the Panama
Canal question is far from
over. While the treaties will
take effect on October 1st, the
implementing legislation is tied
up in a House-Senate Con-
ference Committee and' must
still 'be approved by each body
before being sent to the Presi-
dent. At issue are House
amendments which the Presi-
dent feels are too restrictive.
As you may know, I have op-
posed with vigor the treaties
and the implementing legisla-
.4 tion. I will continue to do so as
this again comes up.
The hospital cost contain-
Srcst bill, to force hospitals to


'keep the cost of care in line, is
facing, an uphill battle in the
Congress. There is much op-
position to this measure from
people in the profession as well
as committee members. Fur-
thermore, the national health
care proposals are facing tough
'going. The speculation here is
that the proposals may fall by
the wayside this year while
some form of catastrophic in-
surance for victims of major
illness will find enough support
for passage.
Besides these issues, many
other .equally controversial
items are up for review and
debate. Throughout these
debates I hope that each of you
will take a moment to apprise
me of your feelings. Although
I think we agree on most
issues, I always appreciate your
input.

Notes Lost

In the Mail
To my many friends who did
not receive a Thank You note
for the many beautiful gifts
and showers that were given
to me before my wedding, I
would like to apologize and
explain why. The mail truck
that was carrying one bunch
of my Thank You notes caught
fiie and the mail was burned.
I did not know which ones
were on the truck until last
week. The Postal Service sent
me five of the Thank You
notes that were not burned too
badly. I am going to try to
redo these notes, but in case I
do miss someone, .I apologize
and thank you very much.

Bartush, Regional Wildlife
biologist for the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion, "and all open lands and
Type II wildlife management
areas may be hunted with
landowner permission or the
proper permits."
Bartush said, "From all
indications, Florida's white-
tailed deer herd appears to be
increasing yearly and an
archer's chances will depend
largely on his pre-season
scouting and preparation."
Legal game for archery
season will be deer of either
sex (except fawn), squirrel,
quail and wild hog (only on
areas where hogs are declared
legal game). On La Floresta
Perdida Wildlife Management
Area, legal deer will be buck
deer with at least one antler
extending five inches above
the hairline.
Archers under age 15 or
residents over 65 are exempt
from licensing requirements
but all others need both a
hunting license and anarche-
ry permit. Those persons
wishing to archery hunt on
wildlife -management areas
will also need a wildlife
management area permit. Li-
censes and permits may be
obtained at the county tax
collector's office or individual
sub-agents.
Additional information on
rules and regulations may be
obtained from Commission
offices in Pensacola, Panama

The St. Joseph Bay Chapter
of the Daughters of the
American Revolution is ob-
serving Constitution Week
from September 17th through
the 23rd, as well as other
chapters all over the United
States. The purpose of this
special week is to recall to the
American people the true
significance of the events
which occurred during the
year 1787, and to emphasize
the responsibility of good
citizenship in protecting the
Constitution in the present and
preserving it in the future.
This is the one hundred
ninety-second birthday of our
United. States Constitution. In


Cape San Bias May be


On National Register


On Saturday, September
8th, at the Corrine Gibson
Library, Mrs. Mable Swatts
presided at the monthly meet-
ing of the Saint Joseph Histor-
ical Society.
After reading an inspiring
poem from Calvin Coolidge's
Memoirs, Mrs. Swatts review-
ed interesting points in the life
of Vernon Lamme, Florida's
first state archaeologist.
A project of long standing of
the Historical Society has
been the extraction from Saint
Joseph Bay of train wheels left
in the water during the life of
Old Saint Joseph. The presi-
dent reported that Mr. Jake
Belin has agreed to be the
chairman of the committee to
complete the job of raising the
wheels and having them
placed on the grounds of the
Corrine Gibson Library.
Mrs. Eunice Brinson, old
Cemetery chairman, express-
ed appreciation for the fall
cleaning job done in the Old
Cemetery by the City of Port
St. Joe. Beds have been
weeded and mulched, shrub-
bery trimmed and numerous
details completed. The Histor-
ical Society has also enjoyed
the excellent cooperation of
Charles Stephens in the clean-
ing project of five of the
mausoleums in the cemetery.
Mrs. Betty McNeill, local
planning committee member,
called attention to the Local
Government Planning Act.
This Legislative Act requires
local governments to deter-
mine and guide their future
growth and it gives adopted
plans a legal status. Mrs.
McNeill shared copies show-
ing the excellent plans for our
county's challenge to use its
resources advantageously.
As Historical Society Libra-
ry Representative and mem-
ber of the Gulf County Library
Board, Mrs. McNeill explain-
ed the financial condition of
the library as related to state
and county financing. She
asked the members to express
their wishes to the commis-
sion concerning this project.


On August 18th Jesse Stone,
Mrs. Eunice Brinson, and
Mrs. Betty McNeill inspected
the construction of the Consti-
tutional Hall replica being
added to the Constutition
Memorial Museum. Details of
the plan promise a valuable
and interesting addition that
will emphasize and further
explain the fascinating history
of our area.
Interest sparked in regard
to getting the Cape San Bias
light house on the National
Register of Historical Sites.
The group decided to examine
the possibility and Mrs. Betty
Fensom was appointed to
investigate.


Mrs.


Marie Costin was


welcomed back as an active
member. Other members pre-
sent were Mrs. Eunice Brin-
son Mrs. Betty Fensom, Mrs.
Betty McNeill, Ms. Netta
Niblack, Mrs. Edith Stone,
Mrs. Lucille Suber, Mrs. Ma-
ble Swatts, and Mrs. Margaret
Smith.

Delegates Chosen


by Republicans


At a highly successful, well..
attended meeting in the Gar-
cen Center last Saturday, the
Republicans of Gulf County
made their selection, by lot, of
Gulf County delegates to the
Republican Presidential Pre-
ference Primary Convention.
The convention will be held in
Orlando November 17..
There before the cameras of
nationwide TV, they will re-
gister their first and second
choices for the Republican
Standard Bearer in the com-
ing presidential election. This
convention unlike any other,
will be composed of people
chosen by lot from among the
more than one million Repub-
licans in all parts of Florida.
This will be a people's conven-
tion and the vote will reflect
the wishes of all Republicans


Smoky Shrimp --It's Different
S .Now is the time to take full advantage of those last fleeting
days of summer. Leave the kitchen behind, give the chef's
hat to the man of the house, and fire up the. grill!
The Florida Department of Natural Resources suggests
smoking seafood as a delicious alternative to traditional
energy-consuming cookery methods. It is the perfect answer
to maintaining the natural moisture as well as imparting a
tantalizing smoky flavor. Any covered grill can be used. The
key factor in smoking is adding the wet hardwood chips over
hot coals to produce smoke and to lower the temperature.
Smoking takes a little longer, but the results are well worth
it!
SMOKY SHRIMP POTATO SALAD is a hot and hea-ty
treat for the whole family. Prepared, cooked and served in
disposable aluminum containers makes cleanup a snap.
Succulent shrimp and sliced potatoes are sauced with a
sweet-sour mixture and textured with cooked celery, onion
and green pepper. Extras like pimiento and crisp bacon bits
make this recipe a "must try".
SMOKY SHRIMP POTATO SALAD
112 pounds raw, peeled, deveined shrimp fresh or frozen
4 cups thinly sliced potatoes, cooked
6 slices bacon, diced
1 cup sliced celery
0 1 cup chopped onion
1 cup green pepper strips
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1t teaspoons salt
% teaspoon celery seed
i teaspoon paprika
.1 cup water
2 cup vinegar
X4 cup chopped pimiento
X4 cup chopped parsley
Thaw shrimp if frozen. Place potatoes in six well-greased,
single-serving disposable aluminum containers. Place
shrimp on top of potatoes. Cook bacon in frypan until lightly
browned and crisp. Drain bacon on absorbent paper and
reserve. Cook celery, onion and green pepper in bacon dripp-
ings until tender. Stir in sugar, flour and seasonings. Add
water and vinegar and cook over moderate heat until mix-
ture is thickened; add pimiento and reserved bacon bits.
Spoon equal amounts of sauce over potatoes and shrimp.
Place containers on grill inside smoke oven and cook at
300*F., for 15 to 20 minutes or until shrimp are done and have
a smoke flavor. Garnish with chopped parsley. Makes 6 serv-
ings.

New Fire Truck


The Mexico Beach Volun-

ladies auxiliary wish to thank
everyone who has helped' in
making their first six months
a complete success. We had a
great response to our letters
asking for donations. With the
donations, cake sale, rum-

$5,000.00. This would not have


happened without the help and
cooperation of the many peo-
ple who care. Our special
thanks to Comforter and St.
Clair funeral homes for the
use of their equipment.
We still have a long way to
go for a new truck. We hope
we can continue to do as well
until the necessary funds are
acquired.

Highland View Baptist


Prepares for Anniversary


The Highland View Baptist
Church is preparing to cele-
brate its 25th anniversary
with a special homecoming on
Sunday, September 23.
Sunday school will meet at
9:45 a.m. with morning wor-
ship at 11:00 a.m. Immediate-
ly following the morning wor-
ship there will be a dinner on
the ground and socializing. At
2:00 p.m. there will be a
special music program and
words from the former pas-
tors of the church.


Everyone is invited to join in
this special event of celebrat-


that being a parent is probably
one of the most difficult,
confusing, frustrating, and
also rewarding experiences
most of us will take on. He
said, "we get to be better
parents because we have
learned the skills. We think
that this program is one way
that concerned parents can


add to their abilities."
All interested parents
should call the Clinic at
227-1145 and register for the
program in advance. A fee of
$2.00 per session is requested
to cover the reproduction of
materials and a certificate
that will be awarded upon
completion.


GCCC Offering


"Pulp" Classes


"With two major paper-pro-
ducing companies in our dis-
trict, it only makes sense to
introduce courses to benefit
them," Gulf Coast Community
College President Larry W.
Tyree told the College's Dis-
trict Board of Trustees, Thurs-
day.
Entitled "Logging and Lum-
bering" and "Pulpwood Pro-
duction," the courses will
expose students to contempor-
ary methods of producing and
harvesting pulpwood. Experi-
ence in the field will comprise
much of the training, accord-
ing to Dr. Tyree.
The trustees also approved
new courses in employability
training, breathalyzer certifi-
cation and fashion merchan-
dising.
A detailed report was given
to the Board by Ms. Pam
Hooper, director of Communi-
ty Services on GCCC's plans to
produce a training film on
hospitality and ( courtesy
awareness.
The film is being funded
jointly by the Florida Depart-
ment of Commerce and De-
partment of Education, and is
intended for statewide use.
Based on a recommendation
by Ms. Hooper, an established
film maker was retained by
the Board to compile the film
under the College's direction.
Sequences will be shot local-
ly, but the completed, 15-min-
ute film will be used by

Big Rattlers On the Move


The rattlesnakes in the lower Gulf County area must
have known last week Hurricane Frederick was going to
come this way, bringing heavy rains and rising water, so
they started hunting high ground. In last week's issue of The
Star, Homer Goff showed off a huge rattler he had killed.
This week, five young men brought in two more giant size
creepy crawlers they had killed in the Depot Creek and
Indian Pass areas.
In the photo at left, Jerry Garrett, left, and Billy Rogers


Paving Requirements


County Administrative As-
sistant Tommy Pitts said his
office had never seen either
the preliminary or finished
drawings. It is the duty of his
office to examine such papers
for compliance with the sub-
division regulations.
Gortman moved to accept
the plat based on the fact that
two County Commissioners
tentatively approved the pro-
ject initiating its purchase and
developmentn. The rest of the
Commission seemed to be in
agreement, but Birmingham
held out for the Board to at
least see the plat before it was
approved. "Not a soul from
this board has seen the plat
and I think we should at least
examine it and waive the
paving restrictions if we want


to do that".
After considerable discus-
sion, Birmingham won his
point and the Board agreed to
approve the plat if it met all
restrictions except the paving
requirement.
Attorney Fred Witten said
the Board was entirely within
its legal rights to waive the
stipulation due to certain
circumstances.
The Board felt the presenta-
tion to them was correct and,
though adamant on the fact
they had made no errors in the
matter, agreed to waive the
stipulation since the owner
thought the plat had been
approved before the paving
stipulation was adopted.
BIRMINGHAM'S MOTION
Birmingham's motion to


abandon the paving require-
ments was then made with
Chairman Branch stating in a
shocked voice, "That's a step
backward. We have .some-
thing good going here. We can
make variances where abso-
lutely necessary."
After a discussion on the
merits of the paving require-
ment after which Birmingham
withdrew his motion, stating
he only wanted to emphasize
its need in the subdivision
requirements.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Board:
-Advised the residents of
Howard Creek that a new
election precinct district must
be requested by the Supervi-
sor of Elections, but that a


show off a huge six-footer with 17 rattles they killed at Indian
Pass. The big snake measured three inches through the
middle and weighed an estimated 15 pounds.

In the photo below, Charles Butler, Donny McArdle and
Stan Price, left to right, hold up a huge rattler they killed
Tuesday afternoon near Depot Creek. The snake measured
five and a half feet. His rattles had been shot off, so the boys
were unable to count them. -Star photos


From Page 1


federal law prevents creation
of a new voting precinct within
three years of a federal
census.
-Heard a report from Com-
missioner, Gortman that the
Corps-of Engineers will re-.
open the mouth of Corley
Slough within nine months if a
spoil site can be located.
Tommy Pitts advised that
Southwest Forest Industries
had agreed to give a spoil site.
The slough was Stopped up'by
spoil from river dredging in
recent years.
-County Administrative
Assistant Tommy Pitts advis-
ed that Brown's Creek would
soon be flowing again. The


Creek was stopped up for a
distance of about 200 yards
about six years ago to prevent
flooding of a cattle ranch in
the area. The Corps of Engin-
eers insisted that it be re-
opened.
-Engineer Reggie Tisdale
reported to the Board that the
current paving project should
be completed by October 5.
This will be about a two week
over-run for which the county
is due liquidated, damages.
They plan to use the damages
to have the contractor repair
several driveway entrances in
the Oak Grove area.

pointed Commissioners Leo

After years and years of
trying by the Gulf County
Commission, the county may
soon have a boat launching
site into St. Joseph Bay, if
current negotiations by Com-
missioner James Tankersley
with St. Joseph Land and
Development, work out.
Tankersley told the Com-
mission, at their meeting
Tuesday he has worked out an
agreement with the Land
Company to lease about two
acres where U.S. 98 joins the
old 98 roadbed north of
Highland View. The site is now
used by local people and
tourists as a spot to park by
the bay, camp, spend the night
and fish in the bay.
Tankersley said the loca-
tion, about a mile north of
Highland View, would be a
perfect site for the boat
launching site because of its
proximity to the bay and Gulf
fishing grounds and its easy
access to the highway.
The Commissioner said the
county still had to secure the
proper permits from state and
federal agencies to develop
the site into a boat launch
area. "If we can get those, we
will have ou; boat ramp and
launching site", Tankersley
said.

gers opened the fourth, quarter

tions by Graceville quarter-


back Tim Cassidy, Wewa's Will McLe-
more picked off a Cassidy throw and
returned it 21 yards to the Tiger 14-yard
line.
FIRST SCORE
The Gators tried, unsuccessfully,
three straight dive plays up the middle,
before Tin Taunton stepped in and
booted a 31-yard field goal for the
game's first score. The Taunton kick
came with 9:54 left in the game.
Following the, ensuing kickoff, the
Tigers ran only one play when Davis
McLemore scooped up a Graceville
fumble and bolted to the Tiger 1-yard
line. Charles Porter scored two plays
later with Taunton adding the extra
.point to cap the game's scoring and
give the Gators a 10-0 victory.
Owens claimed his defense was the


difference in the ball


game, a differ-


ence he wasn't expecting.
"The defense played better than I
expected," said the coach. "Our
defense will win ball games for us."
The coach said the early fumbles and
penalties were a result of his inexperi-
enced ball club.
"We have a bunch of young kids and
until they get some experience they'll
make some mistakes," Owens said.
Wewa will travel to Cottondale
.tomorrow night.

The Board of County Com-
Smissioner of Gulf County,
,-. Florida, met August 14, 1979 in
regular session with the fol-
lowing members present: Wil-
liam R. Branch, Chairman,
Douglas C. Birmingham, Leo
Kefitedy, Jamei L. Tanker-
sley, and Jimmy 9. Gortman.
Others present were: George
Y. Core, Clerk, Jerry Gates,
Finance Officer, Tommy Pitts
Administrative Assistant -
SMO uito Control Director,
'LloydWhitfleld, Road Super-
i Intendent, and K.E. Murphy,
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. Larry Wells,
pastor, United Pentecostal
Church -of Highland View,
opened the meeting with
prayer followed by the pledge
to the flag ,
The minutes of July 12, 17,
19, 24 and 26, 1979 were read,
approved, and adopted.
I j,0mmissioder Gortman dis-
the new chevrolet
Ambulance purchased for the
S.Wewahitchka Squad. He said
that it appears that the seller
does not want to take respon-
sibility for putting it into safe
operating condition; that
General Motors sent its repre-
sentative to determine what
should be done, the result
being to take it to the
Chevrolet dealer in Panama
Cityfor the necessary replace-
ment of faulty parts. He said
that Chevrolet had attempted
to fix the trouble prior to this
and failed to do so; that the
ambulance was returned to
Tommy Thomas as directed
by the General Motor's repre-
sentative and that not only did
the Chevrolet people fail to put
the ambulance in operational
condition, but .they allowed
A someone td damage the body
while it was in their custody.
Commissioner Gortman then
made a motion to call Ivery's
Superior Sales in Orlando,
Florida, the seller of the
ambulance to the County, and
instruct them to come to
Wewahitchka and pick it up.
Motion 'seconded by Commis-
sioner : Birmingham. The
Chairman said that the ambu-
lance was purchased by the
State with emergency medical
service' grant funds; there-
fore, the state should be the
in to contact Ivey's Superior
f ales. At this..poinlt n the'
meeting a call was placed to
the State Emergency Medical
Service Office and the above
information related to them.
Mr. Whiting Andrews of the
Emergency Medical Service
Office said that he would
handle this matter for the
County.
Mr. Max W. Kilbourn ap-
peared before the Board and
requested help in correcting
the descriptions of several tax
certificates he purchased at
the last tax certificate sale
held by the Tax Collector. He
said that one description did'
not exist, another described
United States Government
property, and there were
errors in the others. The Tax
Collector, being present, said
that he was required to make
the tax certificates exactly as
the tax roll listed each parcel.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Tankersley
that the Board request the Tax
.Appraiser meet with the
Board in an effort to correct
the description. Motion se-
conded by Commissioner Ken-
fedy. Vote: Aye Tankersley,
Kennedy, Birmingham, and
Gortman. Nay -. Branch. The
Board informed Kilbourn he
would be informed as to any
decision reached.
An easement and agree-
%fnent from Broward Mixon for
lthe County Road Department
to: remove dirt from his
property was tabled.
The Cle:k reported that the
price of gasoline increased
three cents on July 31, 1979,
making the new price to the
County 75'2 cents.
The Board entered into a
discussion as to a Notice of
Violation and Order for Cor-
rective, Action as to the
County's five garbage dump
sites, to-wit: Honeyville, Ho-
ward's Creek, Oak Grove,
Port St. Joe, and White City.
Said Notice and Order coming
from the State Department of
Environmental Regulation.
This matter was discussed at
length. There was a motion by
Commissioner Kennedy, se-
cond by Commissioner Bir-
mingham, that the Board give
notice that a plan to close
these five pits be submitted to
the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation within 30
days and a request be made to
extend the closing date to
October 1, 1980, which would
provide time to fund the
closing, there being no funds
available in the 1980-81 bud-
get. Vote: Aye Kennedy,
Birmingham, Gortman, and
Tankersley. Nay Branch.
The Administrative Assistant
was directed to begin prepar-
ing the plans to close the pits.
There was a motion by


commissioner Tankersley,
ond by Commissioner

Commissioner Birmingham
discussed the fact that anyone
fishing in the Dead Lakes was
required to buy an extra
fishing license or permit that
costs $1.25. He said that this,
extra cost has been burdening
the people too long and it
should come to a halt. He
suggested that the Legislature
be requested to abolish the
Dead Lakes Water Manage-
ment District during the up-
coming special session and if
this could not be done in a
special session; .that the Go-
vernor appoint five new mem-
bers. that. he appoint three
County Commissioners from
Gulf County and two County
Commissioners from Calhoun
County.
Commissioner Tankersley
reported that' the St. Joe
Natural Gas Company would
begin patching the roads and
streets that were cut in laying
its gas lines in Highland View
and the beaches. He then
reported that he has been
successful in obtaining a boat
landing site in the area of
Butlers Restaurant; that he,
Pitts, and Mr. White, of the St.
Joe Paper Company, are to
select the exact site in the next
few days.
Commissioner Tankersley
discussed a rule by the
SDepartment of Environmental
Regulation that requires a
permit for small boat owners
to bring the shrimp they catch
to the landing. He stated that
caused much confusion and
was a nuisance in that the
permit did not cost anything.
He said he had requested
Representative Leonard Hall
to see if this rule could be
cancelled.
. Commissioner Tankersley
,requested the Road Depart-
ment to grade a road from
SR386 to Wetappo Creek
where the owner plans to build
a home. There was some
question as to whether or not
this was a private road. The
Road Superintendent was in-
structed to clean out the
ditches in St. Joe Beach.
Commissioner Kennedy pre-
sented a report and said that
he used the report to urge
Florida Power to locate its
new generating plant here. A
copy of the report is on file in
the Clerk's office.
Commissioner Kennedy re-
ported that a land owner in
Howard's Creek was request-
ingsthe County to cover a ditch
on his property that was left
there when the Road Depart-
ment moved a street from his
lot to its correct location. This
will be checked out before
anything is done.
Commissioner Tankersley
was excused from the meeting
at this point.
The Road Superintendent
reported that he was now
ready to install four-way stop
signsjn.St. Joe-Beach at the..
intersection of Columbus and
Alabama and Gulf and Ala-
bama Streets. There was a
motion by Commissioner
Gortman, second by Commis-
sioner Birmingham, and it
was unanimously carried that
these two four-way stop signs
be installed and that a public
notice be advertised in the
local newspaper to advise the
people of this action.
Tommy Pitts, Mosquito
Control Director, told the
Board that he had not adver-
tised for a new spray, truck
because the dealers in our
area could not give us a bid at
this time, as all 1979 truck
production had ceased and no
date had been given to the
dealers for receiving 1980
models. The Board directed
him to advertise at this time
just in case a dealer could find
what we need.


With no end in sight to
soaring energy costs. Univer-
sity of Florida (UF i research-
ers are taking a second look at
a power source discarded in
the age of cheap oil.
"Burning wood produces not
only heat. but also a number of
gases that can be used to
power conventional internal
combustion gasoline en-
gines." explains Don M. Post.
professor of forestry with the
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS).
Post and Dr. Kay M. Eoff.
professor of physics, have
successfully modified a 1967


The Chairman discussed the
upcoming bond issue for road
paving. He told Commissioner
Birmingham that none of the
projects in the north end of the
County would be lost due to
right of way width.
The Chairman then remind-
ed each Commissioner that it
was time for them to take an
inventory of County equip-
ment in their departments.
The Chairman appointed the
following Sick Leave Commit-
tee from among the County
employees, to-wit:
Road Department Doyle
Stewart and Jake Hysmith
and Mosquito Control 'Depart-
ment Wesley Smith.
He charged this committee
with making a study of the
sick leave practices of the
employees and to make re-
commendations to the Board
as to how sick leave could be
handled without abusing it.
The, Chairman appointed
Jerry Gates, County Finance
Officer, as a delegate to
represent the hunting and
fishing interests on the Apa-
lachicola River Committee.
The Chairman announced
that in order for the County to
secure the United States
Lighthouse property at Bea-
con Hill, it would be necessary
to have a committee make
plans and recommendations
to utilize the property. He
appointed Tommy Pitts to
serve as Chairman of the
committee and that three
citizens be named at a later
date.
The Chairman called for a
..Vpcial meeting tpfj held Qn
August 21, 1979 at 7:00 p.m. to
finalize the budget.
The Board discussed the
By-Laws of the Bay County
Public Library Association as
pertains to the election and
term of office of the Board of
Directors.
The Board tentatively ap-
proved the Civil Defense bud-
get, in the amount of
$15,480.97.
The Board tentatively ap-
proved the County Court bud-
get, in the amount of $1,685.00.
The Board approved pay-
ment of a $1,000.00 Bond and
$6,815.00 Interest, due Sep-
tember 1, 1979, on the Oak
Grove Water and Sewer Bond
Issue.
The Board approved a bud-
get amendment in the Local
Mosquito Control Fund. A
copy of the budget is on file in
the Clerk's office.


Chevrolet six-cylinder gaso-
line truck engine to operate on
gases generated by burning
wood in a cylinder located on
the rear of the truck. Much of
the work has been done during
their spare time and almost
all parts used are scrap
materials. Total cost of the
project is about $500.
"Because of the limited
range of a wood-burning en-
gine and the need to transport
large amounts of wood, it is
unlikely this power source
would ever become feasible
for vehicles on the road.
However, we hope to demon-
strate the feasibility of using
scrap hardwoods to power
stationary engines for irriga-
tion or power generation in
remote agricultural areas,"
Post explains.
Early wood-burning engine
technology was developed
more than 30 years ago during
World War II when gasoline
supplies were limited in Eu-
rope. The Russians reportedly
did some work with wood
gastification as late as 1950.
Little has been done since
then, he says, to test and
refine this unusual power
source for combustion en-
gines.
The process of obtaining
combustible gases from wood
is basically a simple one, Post
points out. Small blocks of dry
scrub oak are placed in a
sealed cylinder and burned
from the bottom up. When the
temperature within the cylin-
der reaches approximately
2,000 degrees Fahrenheit,
large amounts of carbon mo-
noxide, hydrogen, and other
gases are released.
Post says the hydrogen and
carbon monoxide components
of the gases power the engine
at about 70 percent the effi-
ciency of conventional gaso-
line or diesel fuel.
After the gases leave the

cylinder, they are passed
through a cyclone separator to
remove soot and other debris
from the burning wood. Then
they flow through a pipe to the
front of the truck where they
pass through a wet scrubber
and dry filter, cooling the hot
gases down to approximately
the same temperature as the
outside air. They then enter
the engine through a modified
carburetor.

The IFAS researcher says
the seven-cubic-foot gasifica-
tion cylinder requires about
100 pounds of wood and is


capable of generating gas for
approximately 80 miles driv-
ing at 50 miles per hour.
Before the wood-powered
engine can be started, Post
explains, wood must burn -in
the cylinder for about five
minutes to generate needed
combustible gases. Once the
gases are being produced in
sufficient quantity, the engine
can be started. Since the gas
coming from the cylinder is
about 20 percent carbon mo-
noxide, a highly toxic gas, the
vehicle should not be operated
inside garages or in areas that
are poorly ventilated.
