Dredge Permit Near

Approval Could be Issued With

Representative Leonard Hall said Tuesday that
apparently the impasse between the Department of
Environmental Regulation and the U. S. Army
Corps of Engineers in locating a dredge spoil site for
dredging the entrance to the St. Joseph Bay Harbor
has been settled.
Speaking before the Kiwanis Club Tuesday at
noon, Representative Hall said the Department of
Enviornmental Regulation has come up with a com-
promise for placing the dredge spoil at the site
known as "Shark Hole" just inside the-end of St.
Joseph Pensinula if certain guidelines can be met

by the Corps.
The Corps has insisted all along that the spot
now agreed to by the DER was the best and most
economical place to put the spoil, both from a
dredging cost and to keep the spoil from washing
right back into the channel in just a short time. Rep.
Hall said he has received a verbal tentative agree-
ment from the Corps that they can meet the
provisions set out by the DER for use of the site.
DER chairman, Jake Varnes has been reported
by Hall as saying they will grant the permit if the
Corps can control turbidity caused by the dredging

tin A Month

and if they can protect the grassy area a short
distance from the shore.
Hall said chairman Varnes has stated that if the
Corps accepts the provisions, he feels the permit ,
will be granted within a month.

for Port Construction Funding'

The Port St. Joe Port Authority signed a
Planning Grant Application for $8,855,275.00
for financing planning, engineering and
construction of the long-planned seafood
processing facility here in Port St. Joe.
George G. Tapper, chairman of the Port
Authority, placed his signature on the
application last Thursday morning, with
Rene C. Stewart-Sidney of the Department of
Commerce advising the Port Authority of the
steps they must take. The Commerce
Department is aiding the Port Authority in its
financial matters for the neW port complex.
While the port complex is ultimately to be
designed for processing and overseas ship-
ment of huge quantities of seafood and poul-
try products, the complex will also contain
S facilities for serving the fishing trade, from
boat repairs to ice and fuel, as well as
handling millions of chickens each year, there
will also be provisions in the plans for
pleasure boat docking, launching and service.
The $8.8 million application will take the
project from the design stage to the
construction-ofeverything up to ground level,
including dredging, piling, docks, launching
slips, sheltered mooring sites, etc. All the
above ground facilities will be built and
operated by private enterprise.
The application made last Thursday is only
a part of what will ultimately be a $30 million
project when it is fully completed.
With the application for funding, an-
other phase of the project also got under-
way. .The Department of Transportation'
has committed itself to construction of a
high-rise bridge across the Gulf County
Canal at Highland View as soon as work
begins on the seafood and port facilities.
'he DOT said, this week they are begin-
ning plans immediately for the bridge
in preparation for its construction.
Along with the application for funding,
Stewart-Sidney turned over a report of

conceptual design for the public marine
facilities here. The report was,.prepared by
the Gulf Oceanographic Development Foun-
dation, Inc., and was paid for by the Coastal,
Plains Regional Commission!
The report indicates that the facility will
have a tremendous impact on the south Gulf
County area, as well as the Panhandle Gulf

The report, made after nearly a year of
study and gathering information that the
project will maintain 400 jobs in this area and
create 900 additional jobs. Total annual wages
from the complex are estimated to be
$4.320.000. with a total 'economic impact of

report shows that half, the citizens between'
the ages of 20-29 are leaving Gulf County to,
find jobs and make their homes. reductionss
are that this new project will st6p much of
that migration by providing local jobs.
Revenues from the sport and pleasure
boating, as well as the fishing boat services
are expected to bring in an income of $174,815
the first year of operation. The second year,
these revenues are expected to be .$330,320
with $475,779 predicted for the third year.
These incomes are in addition to the
income generated by the processing facilities.

Property Owners Get

Surprise In Monday Mail

Gulf County property-owners went to
the post office Monday' morning and
received an unwelcome bit of; news: the
taxable value of their property had been

The office of Property Appraiser
Samuel A. Patrick had sent out the
computer-prepared notices over the week
end, in order to meet state requirements
for property appraisal for taxing purposes.
Patrick said Tuesday, "We still don't
have formal approval of our taxing roll,
but we have met the requirements as set.

Patrick had his rolls turned down last

New Bank Opening

The temporary office building of the Port St. Joe office of
the Wewahitchka State Bank was put into place Monday of
this week, at the corner of Fifth Street and Woodward

as being below fair market value, which is
required.by the state. "We were told we
were 20 percent below requirements on
improved property and 30 percent below
vlivt'bn",acant smalr'tracts of land",
Patrick said. The only initial appraisal
approved by the Revenue Department
were agricultural land valuations.
The increase in valuation means that
the property can be taxed more, but the
same law which required the increase in
valuation also requires taxing bodies to
reduce their millage levy by the same
percentage as the valuation increase. This
means the property owner will see very
little, if any, effect in his property taxes.

The City Commission in-
structed Police Chief Roy
Robinson to work up a pro-
gram, along with the Florida
Highway Patrol and the Gulf
County Sheriff's office to
present to the students in Port
St. Joe High School as soon as
it can be arranged.

The program, as described
by Mayor Frank Pate, would
l be to combat the prevalence of
under age drivers operating
vehicles within the city. "We
have too many complaints of
pnder age drivers driving

regularly", Pate said.
The program to be present-
ed to the students, would
outline the vehicle operation
laws and inform the students
that they would be enforced
within the city.
Robinson questioned whe-
ther or not the Police Depart-
ment had the right to stop a
motorist for inspection of his
license if he had broken no
traffic laws. Attorney William
J. Rish advised Robinson that.
the Department has that right.

The Commission reduced
the City's millage rate for the
new taxing year to 4.77
Tuesday night. The reduction
came after a release from the
Property Appraiser, Samuel
A. Patrick, that property
values had been increased on
orders from the state Depart-
ment of Revenue. The City
had formerly set a rate of 5.3
for the coming year.

The new rate will mean that
property owners will be taxed
$4.77 for each $1,000 of valua-

tion in the 1979-80 fiscal year.
The City has been in the
process of developing a list of
job classifications and a sal-
ary schedule for each classifi-
cation with the aid of the
Department of Community
Affairs for the past few
months. Tuesday night, they
reviewed a revised draft of the
personnel policies and adopt-
ed the document. The job
classification and pay scale
schedules were presented for
study, with action probably to
be taken within a month.

Now that schools have been
back in session for a month, a
final, stabilized count of stu-
dents attending this year was
presented to the Gulf County
School Board at their meeting
Tuesday afternoon.
Only two schools in the
five-school system gained en-
rollment. Wewahitchka Ele-
mentary School, was up 11
students over last year for an
enrollment of 509. Highland
View Elementary School also
showed a 15 pupil increase to
an enrollment of 165.
Decreases in enrollment
were experienced by Port St.
Joe schools. Port St. Joe
elementary had 573 students
enrolled this year, 40 less than

last year. The local high
school dropped eight students,
down to an enrollment of 782.
Wewahitchka High School
held their own with a student
population of 388, the same as
last year.
Overall, the system has 22
students less this year than
were in the system last year.
A total of 2,417 are on the
attendance rolls.
Beginning this year, every
student from K-12 will receive
report cards at the same time,
with the same frequency,
using the same code system to
identify the student's pro-

In the past students in
grades K-3 have received
report cards every nine weeks
with a grade identification
system of U, S and H used.
This didn't seem "school-y"
enough for some parents, so
the system has been changed.
All students attending Gulf
County Schools will now re-
ceive report cards every six
weeks using the familiar A, B,
C, D, F grade markings.
Some changes approved in
the system Tuesday included
one which has been mandated
by the State Department of
Primary Educational Spec-

ialists have been appointed i
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka
elementary schools to aid
students with learning prob-
lems. The specialists will be
assisting teachers with stun
dents who have learning prob-
lems, writing programs for
the students.
Specialists appointed were
Barbara Whitfield for Port St,
Joe and Betty Husband in
Another change came about
when the Board decided to
maintain adult education posi-
tions as long as a student load
supports the position. When
the load diminishes, the class
will be dropped, even if it is in
the middle of the year.

County Takes the

r Step


SIn our estimation, the. Gulf
County Commission took the right
step last Tuesday night, when they
decided to go along with the
Northwest Regional Library for
another year, giving them time to
air their differences.
, For better than a year now, the
commission arid the Regional Li-
rdary have been at one another's
tEr6ats on expenses to run the
library. The Regional committee
wasn'tt tried very hard to justify their
bosts and the Commission has tried
t st as little to find out for
themselves. .
SRather than just throw up their
hands and cut contributions to the
pint where the Region would

agreed to try to get to the bottom of

Jackson has been one of our
hopes for a settlement of the
senseless bickering between whites

nation where a man is considered as
a man and a citizen, regardless of

member Fred Witten has volun-
teered to try to get the answers the
Commission wants.
It could. very well be that the
better than 18 percent increase in
the Regional budget is justified. All
the Commission knows is that they
are pretty well limited to a seven
percent increase and they can't
understand the Regional Library
being seemingly able to increase
their budget as much as they want
without consulting the local mem-
bers about it.
We need the library service, but
we need it as economically as
possible. While we highly favor the
membership in the Regional system,
we feel the County Commission is on
firm ground about insisting on being
consulted on budgets made up by the'
system, if the county is to be
expected to fund part of it.

We agree with Jackson's theme,
"I am somebody. Respect me.
Protect me. Never neglect me. I am.
somebody." That theme could well
apply to everybody. But, Jackson is
going against his own theme when
he does what he did in the Near East
last week, trying to pit the PLO
against Israel. They need no help in
this venture. There is already
enough enmity between the two.
Jackson heads an organization
called, People United to Save
Humanity. His speeches and actions
in the Near East last week does just
the opposite. He is now dividing, not

Saturday is the first phase of the dove season
here in Northwest Florida and I am getting
ready. For the past four or five years, I have
neglected my dove shooting. I was always too
busy, or it was too hot, or I had something else I
wanted to do or had to do which I considered
more important.
Last. Christmas, I gave my number one
grandson, who is now 11, a .410 shotgun for
Christmas, so now he has reminded me that it is
time to get ready to go the dove field.
So, if you want me for anything Saturday,
you'll just have to wait until Monday. I'll be at
the dove field, waiting for the little gray birds to
fly, so I can scare them into flying, faster. After
five years out of practice, I hope I can still come
close enough to scare them.

One of the songs in the musical, "Oklahoma"
has a line in it which goes, "High as the sky in
Kansas in August.. ." The line in the song was to
describe the feeling of the character doing the
singing, but here in these United States, the
interest rates have now gone "high as the sky
in Kansas in August". The rate jumped twice
within a week last month, with major banks
raising their prime rates to 13V2 percent. That's
a pile of money to pay to rent more money.

The investigation is continu-'
ing with the Gulf County

ment participating.

Words can't really express
the gratitude we feel toward
all those individuals, churches
and clubs that contributed so
dearly toward our misfortune.

prayers and kind thoughts.
Thank all of you for being
there. God bless you all!

our legal position is since we
didn't have legal counsel
present at the meeting. All we
could do is to take the
complaint, put it on file and
pursue it at a later date if any
of the members of the board
wish to pursue it."
As a consequence of lack of
information, there was no
action taken in any direction
on Peters' complaint.


Remember back in the good old days of
about four years ago when it was illegal in
Florida to charge more than 10 percent? Most
people who must borrow (and who doesn't?)
would like to see that rate once again.
I have declared a moratorium on my
borrowing for a while, which is exactly what the !
increased rates were designed to do.
It worked with me.

Here it is officially autumn, but Summer has
returned. I'm not talking about the season
summer, though that is still with us too. The air
conditioners are still running, in spite of the arm
and a leg it costs to keep them churning.
I'm talking about Steve Canyon's wife,
Summer. About three years ago, Summer just
walked out of the front door and disappeared
and I have been reading the strip religiously ever
since to see what happened to her.
Last week, just as mysteriously, she came
back again. I still don't know what happened to
her, but I am relieved.

About two weeks ago, County Commissioner
Doug Birmingham made a friendly wager with
me on the outcome of the Port St. Joe-Wewa-
hitchka football game. If Wewahitchka won I had
to give Doug a few lines of "good press" here in-
the paper.
Wewa won, or we wereTobbed; depending on
which side of the field you were sitting on. Now I
have the problem of 'giving Doug some "good
press", for which need some help. If any of you
know anything good about Doug, please bring it
to my attention so I can pay off my wager with
Doug. Do it quick now, so I can get this debt out

Reflective tape will be ap-
plied in a "Lite-A-Bike" pro-
gram to be conducted here by
the Veterans of Foreign Wars,
Post 10069.
Tape will be applied to
bicycles at Port St. Joe
Elementary School on Satur-
day, October 6 from 10:00 a.m.
S" to 2:00 p.m. Strips of reflective
tape will be put, on the rear
fender or high-rise bar, han-
dlebars, frame, front forks
and wheels of the bicycles,
making each bike more visible
after dark from all angles.
*. The highly reflective tape'- the
same type material used in
re. reflective traffic signs and
oto license plates is visible in the
headlights of an automobile.
The program places greater
emphasis on outlining the
shape of the bike at night.
- Drivers will no longer have to
guess what spots of reflected
light mean. The shape of the

bicycle at night will closely
resemble its shape in daylight.
"Youngsters shouldn't be
out bike riding after dark, but
if they are, their bikes should
have reflective tape," said
David Young, director of the
local "Lite-A-Bike" program.
He pointed out that some 800
persons are killed each year in
bike accidents, 62 percent of
them children under 14. An-
other 28,000 persons are in-
jured each year in such
accidents. Four out of five
fatal bike accidents occur
after dark.
"The extra warning provid-
ed by reflective tape can help
save a child's life," the V.F:W.
official said.
In addition to applying tape,
V.F.W. members will inspect
the bikes for proper equip-
ment : horn or -other signaling
device, headlight, rear reflec-
tor and functioning brakes.

"Scared Straight" to

be Shown Thursday

The Gulf County Adult
School will present a video
tape, show presented by the
Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment Thursday morning, Oc-
tober 4 at 9:30 a.m. at the
Centennial Building.
This film is a taped inter-
view between some teenagers
prone to law breaking and
prison inmates in which the
prisoners describe, in their

own words, life in prison,
This film' contains profanity
and tells a grim story of actual
prison living, but the message
the prisoners get across to the
teenagers is a powerful one
that gives the film its title
"Scared Straight."
All adult school students and
the general adult public' are
invited to see -this film.

We all have to eat, and most
of us enjoy eating vegetables.
But, to grow properly and
produce abundantly, vegeta-
ble crops have to eat too. And,
we have to feed them, by
fertilizing that is. A good
fertilizer program is an essen-
tial part of vegetable garden-
ing in Florida. But, fertilizers
sometimes can be confusing.
What do the numbers mean?
And, how much of which kind
should you use?

You can improve the fertili-
ty of your home vegetable
garden soil with animal man-
ures, or other kind of organic
But, to do the job right, in
most situations, you also need
a commercial fertilizer with
significant amounts of the
three major plant nutrients.
Plants need a variety of
nutrients. But, the major
elements you must supply are
nitrogen, phosphorus and po-

When to Fertilize

Because of the difference n
temperature and growing sea-
son and the wide variety of
trees in Florida, fertilizer ap-
plications vary considerably.
In north and central Florida,
trees should be fertilized in
early winter so that the plant
food will be available to the
roots prior to bud develop-
Usually, one application a

During the six-week cruise,
his ship will participate in the
20th anniversary celebration
of the Saint Lawrence Seaway

people in the Inland area.
Also, area reservists receive
shipboard training while the
crews learn restricted water
navigation and operations.

Tim Taunton's Toe Tames Sharks

Extra Point In Double-Orertime Wins for Gators

Tim Taunton's talented toe
gave the Wewahitchka Gators
the one point they needed to
remain undefeated for the
season and hand the Sharks
their first loss of the season,
17-16' In a game which was
Siostponed from Friday to
Saturday night because of wet
conditions on the football field
from heavy rains over the past
two weeks, both teams sloshed
"through.. the game, fumbling
: the ball regularly.
The Sharks' problem for the
night was that their fumbles
came at times which could
eieny a score for them or make
; one possible for their oppo-
n -,ents.

Twice the Sharks fumbled in
: controversial calls as they
were crossing the goal line
with the football. A third
umble came on the Gator 39
S' ith the Sharks driving. The
G ators only score in the
y' regulation game time also
came on a Shark fumble in the
-; last period with five minutes
left in the game. Terry Myers
,.' recovered the Shark fumble
"on the Shark 20, and six plays
later, Gator quarterback

Steve Stripling passed 15
yards to Johnny Nobles for the
TD. Tim Taunton kicked the
extra point to tie the game.
The Sharks started out the
game driving from the Gator
25, after a high snap from
center on a Gator punt, caused
"the kicker to miss the snap
and the Sharks recovered.
Five plays later, R6zell Jen-
kins took the ball over on a
nine yard run up the middle. A
Shark clipping penalty nulli-
fied the score, so they had to
start over from the Gator 20. A
Wewa personal foul put the
ball back up to the nine.
Jenkins ran twice for four and
two yards, then Rick Taylor
sneaked over from the one in
the first of two controversial
calls. As Taylor fell over the
goal line, the referee ruled
that Taylor fumbled the ball
and gave the Gators the ball
on the 20.
On their next possession of
the ball early in the second
period, the Sharks started on
their own 41 yard line and
drove to the touchdown in 12
plays. The scoring play was a

26 yard pass to Castledara
Gant, who was all alone about
five yards from the goal line.
Gant stepped across for the
score, and Taylor kicked the
extra. point to put the Sharks
ahead in the game.
The Gators tried to get on
the scoreboard in the first
half, when Tim Taunton at-
tempted a 14 yard field goal as
the half was fading. but his
kick went wide of the goal
The game kept the house full
of spectators on the edge of
their seats for the entire night.
even though there was no
more scoring until the double
overtime periods after the
regulation game ended in a
7-7 deadlock.
The Sharks had crossed the
goal line again in the third
quarter-when Taylor scored
from the 12 yard line, but,
once again in a controversial
call.ithe referee ruled that
Taylor fumbled the ball as he
crossed the goal line and gave
the Gators a touchback.
In the first overtime period,
everyone was standing while
the Gators tried first to put a

score across the goal line.
Quarterback Stripling tried to
run around end., but was
stopped for a two yard gain.
Charles Porter, the Gator's
big gun. then tried it up the
middle but got only one yard.
Harold Williams. who had
been a big gainer for the
Gators all night. then tried up
the middle and picked up
three yards. Tim Taunton
unwound a field goal to put the
Gators ahead, 10-7.
On the Sharks attempt to
score in overtime. Taylor
tried a pass. but a Gator
interferred and the Sharks
had the ball on the five.
Jenkins then picked up two
yards, but was set back four
yards on the second play. A
screen went for no gain, so
Taylor matched Taunton's
field goal and again knotted
the score at 10-10.
In the second overtime
period, Taylor carried the ball
on three straight sneaks and
scored on the third carry. But
the kick for the extra point,
which cost the Sharks the ball
game, went wide.
In the Gators second over-
time period, Porter carried

for one yard and Williams
then swept the left end to put
the ball into the end zone. Tim
Taunton's extra point kick
was the clincher for the
Friday night. the Sharks
will be hosts to the Apalachi-
cola Sharks here in Port St.
The Gators will be at home
to the Sneads Pirates.

By now everyone knows
what a great game the Sharks
played September 29 against
Wewa. Despite the mud there
was a great turn out of
supporters on both sides. The
water and mud did not damp-
en the school spirit. The
Sharks played a good game,

but the Gators played a little
bit better at least we put up a
good fight. To be a small band,
Wewa's band performed well,
