gri-Ports Construction to Start
Stock In New Corporation Goes On Sale This Week
Stock will go on sale this week and
ground is scheduled to be broken in
mid-February for construction of a
grain elevator, which is expected to
handle about 40 million bushels, for
,i shipment overseas in its first year of
'operations. Tom Kuehl, general man-
ager for .Agri-Ports told .the Rotary-
Club last Thursday.
The new port facility, to be built
;. between St. Joe Paper Company and
4 the Hess Oil tank farm on St. Joseph
]p Bay, is the brainchild of Lowell Peavy,
who heads up a grain marketing firm
and a chemical and fertilizer business
' in Camilla, Georgia. -
In a visit to Port St. Joe back inL
September, Peavy said he-knew 'the
port would handle at least 40 million
bushels. of grain, since firms he is
involved in purchase that much grain
now, each year.
In his talk Thursday, Kuehl said'
there are 'now 265 million bushels of
grain being grown within 150 miles of
Port St. Joe each year. "Most pof this
production is. going into. the foreign
market and it is presently trucked as
far as New Orleans to get to a market.
Even then, the farmer faces long delays
in unloading because of the traffic at
"With this facility, grain producers
would be within 150 miles of a port of
export and it would mean money in
their pocket because of the lessened
distance for trucking operations."
The grain export business seems to
beone of the fastest growing businesses
in the United States today. Kuehl said
that in -1970t the nation exported 1.7
billion bushels. This year, the nation is'
exporting over five billion bushels,
much it from the south and southeast.
Kuehl said there are two places left,
on the Gulf of Mexico capable of
'handling a grain export operation. One
of them is Port St. Joe. With the plans of
Kuehl and Peavy, this number will bhe
reduced by one about the middle of next
year. ..- :
Kuehl said thelocal facility is being
designed to unload about 60,000 bushels
of grain ap. hour, much of it from
railroad hopper cars. The elevator is
being designed so the train will not even
have to stop as it brings cars into the
elevator for unloading. The cars will be
unloaded as they. slowly pass over an
unloading pit, where the grain is
transferred inside .the elevator by
An added attraction to the local
plan is that it will also serve as an
import point for fertilizers and agricul-
tural chemicals. Kuehl said mid-west
'growers are also interested in sending
unit trains of grain to Port St. Joe for
shipment and haul fertilizers back in
one operation. Fertilizer imports would
also go on through the port for area
farmers. This would enhance the future
of the plans:. which were originally
started to handle area grown commodi-
is that the mid-west farmer will not
have to be paying for more than one
handling of his grain before it gets on
board, ship, thus making more money
for him. In other operations, he must
.make an expensive long truck haul, or
pay for storage and several handling
of his grain before it reaches the final
destination. "All of this costs the
farmer money," Kuehl said.
The project has been waiting for
over a month for approval from the
securities and Exchange Commission
to begin selling stock as part of its
financial package to construct the local
facilities. Kuehl said the firm has a loan,
commitment of $11 million from
Farmers Home Administration, based
on the sale of from 440,000 to 540,000
shares of stock which will initially be
sold at $10.00 a share. This stock sale is
beginning this week and will continue
for 120 days.
Keuhl says he sees no difficulty in
selling the stock.
"Right now, our biggest concern is
whether or not the entrance to the
harbor will be dredged to accommodate
the ships we will be bringing into Port
St. Joe in our operation." Kuehl said.
He said that once the elevator gets into
full operation, there should be an
average of two to three ships a week in
the local port to pick up their products.
"We need 35 feet of water to make
this project viable", Kuehl said. "This
much water will make us accessible to
70 percent of the shipping which uses
the Gulf at this time."
Kuehl said that if things go as they
now seem they will, if ample water is
available, the elevator operation will
double in just a short while after it gets
The Agri-Port manager said the
new 'operation would start off here in
Port St. Joe with about 20 employees
and that amount will grow as the export
Initially, there will be more for the
expected'14 months it will take to build
"We've been well received here',
Kuehl said, "and have been given every
bit of assistance we could ask for in
getting permits, dockside dredging
permits, transportation, etc."

Patrol Predicts 32 Holiday Fatalities
Gulf County's veteran Clerk of the Court, George Y.
Core, marked his 31st year on the job last Friday. The
occasion didn't go unnoticed, as his office staff gave him a
little reception and party in the office to remind him of his
long time in office and, as a plaque said which they presented
to Core, "We love you".
Core took office as the Clerk of the Court on November
16, 1948. He had been elected to the post in the fall elections,
but wasn't due to take office until January 1, 1949. The
_retiring clerk, Joe Hunter, decided he wanted to step down on
November 15, so the call went out to Core, who was
vacationing in New York, to come home to take over the

Thankful Our Nation Not Like Other Nations
I "- '
We're thankful our nation is large enough
and powerful enough to'use restraint in such a
situation as we have now in Iran. Any other
nation would react quickly to the situation and
cause a problem which neither nation could
back away from. Our nation is large and
powerful enough to move in other ways to
affect the release of the hostages without
resorting to force by arms.
We're thankful our nation can stand on the
street corner, cast its eyes toward the heavens
and proclaim, "We're the greatest nation on
earth", without being vain about it because it
is the truth. It's true such a position for our
nation causes it to be the target of envy and
jealousy from other nations about the world,
but we would rather our nation be the target of
jealousy than to have to regard the Soviet
Union as the world's greatest nation through a
posture of fear.
We will all sit down Thursday to a meal of
too much. Most of us will offer prayers for
those of the world who do not have enough to
eat on this special day. That was the problem
with the pharisee; he stood on the synagogue
steps praying how good he was, but he did
nothing to back up his claims with actions.
As we pray for the other nations of the
world which do not have sufficient food, let
us remember that our nation was first in line
when it came time to ship food to the starving
So when we proclaim our nation as the
best in the world, what removes us from the
position of the pharisee is ... it is.
"Oh, Lord, I'm thankful I'm not like that
man praying .to you over there!"
Remember that prayer by the pharisee
which the preachers use so often to teach us
how we should not consider ourselves better
than others int the sight of God?
America, at this time of the year, with
Thanksgiving tomorrow, might well pray the
.prayer, "Oh God, we're glad our nation is not
like other nations," and feel we are only being
patriotic to our country and merely appreciat-
ing'what is so evidently so.
Without feeling we are overly emphasiz-
ing our nation's ego, we feel we can
comfortably offer that prayer without assum-
ing the attitude that our nation has nothing
wrong with it, for we do surely have feet of
clay to go with our bushel-basket size hearts
and our heads which are turned by every hard
luck story in the world with little thought as to
what we may get out of any largess we may
have to offer..
Even so, our nation is not perfect. It isn't
even perfect when compared with others.
At Thanksgiving time, we are thankful
that our nation is the one which is feeding over
one third of the world with our six percent of
the population and an even smaller percent-
age of the world's land. While some of us
begrudge "sending all our food to those
foreigners", we're thankful it is our nation
which can and does do it.
The special session of the Legislature,
scheduled to begin in just a few days ha the
tax reform package of Governor Bob Graham,
in trouble. The papers say this is because the
package is too vague and details not well
enough known for it to be approved in what
is to be about a four day session.
For this reason, we are glad the package
is in trouble. We're not particularly fond of
paying taxes. We'd like a cut on our tax bill
just like everyone else would. The taxing
program we now have took a long time to build
and we can't see how it can be so simple to
change it in four days with very little
information available. All of this adds up to
the fact that it would be too easy to cause
much harm rather than good from a hastily
contrived so-called tax reform.
From what we read of the carrot of tax
reform which will be offered in the special
session, it isn't all that great, anyhow.
Most of the reform seems to be just
shifting the job of digging into our pockets for
tax money from the right hand to the left hand.
Other "reforms" just do away with some
taxes which are now paying for services. We
may decide that we wish to keep these
services and pay the necessary taxes to keep
It's a cinch the only type of tax reform
which will do the people any good is a
reduction of taxes. You do that by subtracting,
not moving the tax burden from one area to
another. And in these days when people are
demanding more and more of government, it's
going to be mighty hard to cut the income. As
a matter of fact, our practice of trying to
stretch, the American dollar to cover all
problems which face us as people may be the
reason the dollar is bouncing so high on the
foreign market today.

,In these three verses of
scripture Jesus is talking
about love, God's kind of love.
Jesus talked a lot about love,
in fact the Bible says God is
love. He gave us a, command-
ment to 'love one another'.
He further tells us that even
as God loved Him He loved us
the same and we are to love
others in this same way. This
love He speaks of asks nothing
in return. It builds up the other
person. It is not selfish nor is it
an attempt to get an upper
hand over someone.
Now Jesus says in verse 35
that people can tell His
disciples by how they love.
How do we love as Christians?
If is isn't as Jesus does it is not
the love of Christ. But it can be
by asking Him to make it so.
PRESIDENT CARTER earned the
approval of the nation this past week to
aidegree he had never been able to in
the past when he cut off oil purchases
firm Iran and froze that nation's cache
o, dollars in U.S. banks.
The Ayatolla Khomeini should get a
message from President Carter's ac-
ti ns, which seem to have the approval
o( the great, great majority of the
wrld. There wasn't the first mention,
which we have seen, in the foreign
pfess disapproving of Carter's moves.
: This leads one to believe that even
our enemies know a nation doesn't go,
tqing an embassy corps captive and
h4ld them hostage. Nor, does a leader
of a responsible nation allow mobs
within its borders 4to commit such.
: If some of the press whichexists in
the other nations of this world& will let
President Carter and the United States
get by with such drastic actions, it must
be a message that they, also, approve of
tle United States' stance in. the stand-
off and disapprove of Khomeini's.
Stopping the flow of oil will more
than likely make supplies in tight
supply here, but it will stop the flow of
dollars into Iran.
While the nation of Iran furnished

just fell behind a caravan of three

PIERRE IS GONE. After 14 years
of living at our house and furnishing a
welcome fit for a king every time one of
the family came home, he will welcome
them no more.
Pierre got down in the back about,
two weeks ago and degenerated to the
point where he couldn't get up by
himself and it was too painful for him to
have someone lift him up.
He had arthritis. We couldn't get
the arthritis treated because he had bad
heart trouble and the vet said the
arthritis treatment would kill him.
So he suffered with arthritis for
better than a year until he got down and
couldn't get up here in recent days.
Old Pierre had cataracts on both
eyes, one of which was blind. In spite of
this, he still knew when someone who
regularly came to our house entered,
and they got the famous Pierre
welcome, which was a friendly wagging
of the head and a furious wagging of the
If you had been gone a long while,
he would grin, snort and just look glad
all over that you were back.
Pierre was a great gentle ungainly
sort for a Poodle. He was what is known
as a standard poodle and he stood just a
little over knee high. Most people would d
say, "What a big dog for a poodle!" It
took all that size to cover Pierre's big
heart for his family.
In spite of his size, he was a gentle
soul. He raised nine grandchildren for
us from the crawling stage on up. All
the grandchildren loved him. The first
thing they would do.when coming to the
house would be to crawl over to Pierre's
favorite corner, behind my recliner,
and crawl up on his back and play with
his big floppy ears.
Sometimes Pierre wouldn't like
this treatment, but he never snapped at
nor growled at one of the young ones.
He would just lie still, patiently, until
they would get out of the way and then
he would get up and move. He never
knocked one of the crawlers or toddlers
He would steal a cookie from them
now and then.
He knew everyone in the family by
name and every casual visitor would
receive a going over before he would
allow them in the house.
But we had to put him to sleep and
our hearts are sad.

Recent polls show that the
cost of college tuition is, like
almost everything else, going
up. In fact, the costs are now
so high that almost one-third
of American families had to

Bicycle deaths are up 19
percent in 1979 over the same
period in 1978 said the Florida
Highway Patrol recently.
Patrol records show that
bicycle deaths for the first
nine months of 1979 are up to
57 as compared to 48 for the
same period in 1978.
Patrol Director Colonel El-
drige Beach feels that while
some bicyclists take too many
chances and bring about their
own downfall, motorists can
help stop these tragic deaths
by anticipating bikers' moves
when they see them.
Drivers involved in motor
crashes can receive small
consolation by saying, "I had
the right-of-way." Especially
if they will admit to them-
selves that they could possibly
have prevented the crash by
reducing speed when nearing
"Proper training of children
when they first receive their
bicycle helps reduce crash-
es," concluded Beach, "but

sive riding is the real secret to

process of extending its ser-
vices throughout the beach
area and that a number of
streets have very recently
been paved. The Board agreed
that if these newly paved
streets are involved in the Gas
Company program, the
streets cannot be cut; that the
pipe line will have to go under
the street without interrupting
the surface of the pavement.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed the need for the water
lines to be installed by the City
of Mexico Beach in Beacon
Hill and St. Joe Beach to
proved for a proper number of
fire hydrants in each area.
The Chairman said it was
generally understood that fire
hydrants were provided in the
plan; however, it was not
written into the franchise.
Whereupon, there was a mo-
tion by Commissioner Branch,
second by Commissioner Ken-
nedy, and it was unanimously
carried that a letter be written
to the City of Mexico Beach
and to the City's Engineer
requesting that this Board be
assured that fire hydrants will

informed the Board that the

that could be used by the Road
Department; that he has
inspected it and found it in.
very good condition. He said
that it could be purchased for
$2,800.00. There was a motion
by Commissioner Branch, se-
cond by Commissioner Gort-
man, and it was unanimously
carried, that the County pur-
chase this equipment.
The Administrative Assist-
ant reported that he and the
Road Superintendent mea-
sured the distance from the
centerline of the Pleasant
Rest Cemetery County Road
to the outside shoulder of the
ditch; that they found the
right of way to be an average
of 28 feet; that this distance on
the south side of the paved
road runs from 35% feet to 28
feet. He then recommended
that the power lines he instal-
led 26 feet from the centerline
and the telephone line be 24
feet from the centerline. He
then recommended that the
Board approve permits to the
St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company for a
buried cable route along the
right of way of the Pleasant
Rest Cemetery Road. This
application was approved
upon motion by Commissioner
Branch, second by Commis-
sioner Kennedy and unani-
Pitts then informed the
Board that he had studied and
investigated the application
for a permit by Cape San Bias
Partnership to construct and
maintain a water line system
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
along SR30E (St Joseph Pe-
ninsula Road); that he now
recommended this permit be
issued. Upon motion by Com-
iissioner Branch, second by
Commissioner Kennedy, it
was unanimously approved
this permit be issued.
The Chairman requested
Commissioner Branch and
Pitts to discuss the Pleasant
Rest Cemetery Road right of
way matter with the Gulf
Coast Electric Cooperative
and determine if they would
relocate their power poles at a
later date if it becomes
Kennedy said he thought the
poles should be moved imme-
diately and he made a motion
to request Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative to move the poles
to a position 26 feet from the
centerline of said road. Motion
seconded by Commissioner
Branch. Vote: Aye Kennedy,
Branch, and Tankersley. Nay
er Gortman was absent during
Tommy Pitts informed the
Board that the taking of
inventory of his department
had been completed and that
every item was found with the
exception of the following:
70-17, Fire Extinguisher,
junked; 70-79, Gas heater,
transferred to White City Fire
Department; 70-94, Three Ton
Pitts reported that 70-153,
listed as a jack, should be
reclassified as a frame for
lifting motors. The Board
directed the Clerk to correct
the Mosquito Control invento-
ry as per above items.
Ira Hanna questioned the
Board as to when his ditch
would be put in. The Road
Superintendent explained this
ditch could not be constructed
because other land owners
were involved; that the land
lines must first be marked in
order that the ditch could be
properly described. Commis-
sioner Branch suggested the
land owners furnish the Coun-
ty a survey and the County
would then complete the ditch.
Hanna said he would get a
survey of his land.

that this bill was being pushed
on the mistaken identity of it
providing more tax money to
the State and he said that
Senator Gordon attempted to
prove his point by saying
"look at the extra taxes we get
by having legalized whiskey".
The Senator thinks the people
of Florida are naive enough
not to realize that the whiskey
tax coming into the state is not
enough to pay the expendi-
ture by the state for taking
care of drunks. Kennedy said
that in his opinion alcohol
costs the state, industry and
society billions of dollars
every year, not counting acci-
dents, broken homes and the
injury of children that grow up
in homes with drunken par-
ents. He said that marijuana
was worse than alcohol and
this Board should fight this bill
in every way possible. There
was a motion by Commission-

Sharks Win Season Finale, 23-0.
Wind Up Season With A 6-4 Record
It turned into a cold night in
Tallahassee Friday night for
the Sharks' final game of the
season, but after a fitfull start,
the Sharks put it all together
in the last three periods to
dump the Demons 23-0 at their
In that cold first quarter, the
Sharks took the kick-off and
fumbled the ball away on the
-first play. The Demons were
not much warmer, since quar-
terback Edwin Read threw an
interception to Dusty May on
his first play.
That was the way it went
until the last third of the
period, when Rick Taylor hit
Jeff Wood with a 37 yard pass
for the first big Shark play of
the game. With the period
winding down and the Sharks
on the Demon 27 yard line and
a fourth and 14 situation,
Taylor unwound his kicking
foot and missed a field goal
The second period was a
good one for the Sharks as
both the running and passing
games began working and
resulted in 13 points.
With 7:54 left in the period,
the Sharks started a drive
from their own 11 yard line.
Rick Taylor clipped off the
longest run of the night as he
pounded around the right side
and headed up field for 76
yards before he was brought
down from behind. Four plays
later, Jenkins ran up the
middle for four yards and the
Sharks' first score. All that
running had taken the steam
out of his kicking foot and his
extra point attempt was low.
Three minutes later, Taylor
hit Kenny Mason in the end
zone with a 31 yard aerial and
kick the extra point to put
seven more -points on the
During the half time, in
spite of some unsportsmanlike
conduct calls from Port St.
Joe fans against the conduct of
the Florida High band waiting
on the sidelines, Port St. Joe's
"Band of Gold" out-scored the
Florida High band in its
As the second half opened,
Mason brought the Shark fans
to their feet as he fielded the
kick on the Shark nine yard
line and picked his way
through the crowd all the way
to the Demon 43, to put the
Sharks in scoring position.
After a .31 yard pass to
Mason and a five yard pitch-
out to Jenkins, the Sharks
were knocking at the door on
the Demon three. A Shark
penalty moved them back to
the 12 and Jenkins picked up

another six yards before the
The Sharks started their
next drive two and a half
minutes later from their own
30. Jenkins ripped off runs of
15 and 14 yards and Taylor hit
Jeff Wood with a 26 yard pass
to the Demon 21. A five yard
penalty stalled the Sharks
momentarily, but Dusty May
came through the middle with
seven yards, but, by then, it
was fourth and 18 from the
Demon 19. Again Taylor put
on his kicking shoe and this
time, drilled one through the
uprights for a 39 yard field
goal, which advanced the
score to 16-0.
With 8:40 left in the last
period, the Sharks started
their last scoring drive.
Jenkins started things off
with a 16 yard dash. Taylor
then hit Blane Cox across the
line with a 16 yard pass.
Jenkins went for 15 more and
May for four before an off-side
penalty set them back five
yards. But a pitch-out to
Jenkins picked up 18 more'on
two runs and May added
three. May then went through
the middle to score with 5:51
left on the clock to make the
final score 23-0..
The stout Shark defense
held the Demons at bay all
night long, checking them in
every attempt and allowing
only 42 yards on the ground
