Santa Coming to Town Saturday

A) LBig Downtown Parade Starts At 1:30

Santa Claus will make his annual
visit to Port St. Joe Saturday afternoon,
arriving here in Port St. Joe at 1:30
p.m. Santa has made a departure from
his usual arrival time, due to a change
in schedule. In the past, he has
appeared in Port St. Joe at 10:30 in the
morning,' but a delay in airline
schedules has moved his visit back to
later in the day this year.
Greeting the merry old gentleman
will be a giant parade, which will line
up on Highway 71 and tour down Reid
Avenue to First Street where it will
continue north on' U.S. 98 to Main
Street, to Avenue C and back to U.S. 98.
SThe parade will then make its way back
to the point of beginning, where it will

be disbanded.
According to the Port St. Joe
Jaycees parade chairmen, David Lewis
and Karl Bowen, several .floats entered
by church, civic and fraternal groups
will be featured in the line-up of things
to see in the parade, along with several
decorated cars, bicycles, riding groups
and marching organizations. "We think
we have a fine parade lined up", Lewis
Lewis pointed out that organiza-
tions who have not notified the Jaycees
as yet of their intentions to appear in
the parade should do so before
Saturday morning, so they can be given
a position in the parade line-up. Lewis
or one of his parade assistants can' be

reached at 227-1422 or 229-6728.
The parade will be escorted by law
enforcement vehicles from Gulf Coun-
ty, followed by marching bands, .the
colors, carried by the Port St. Joe High .
School NJROTC, the floats and various
Santa will bring up the rear, riding
on one of the City's big fire engines,
tossing candy to his many admirers as
he. makes his way along the parade
The best three float entries, of a
non-commercial nature, will be given
substantial cash prizes by the Port St,
Joe Merchant's Division, sponsors of
the parade.

SJPC Plans Big Expansion

St. Joe Paper Company's Board of
Directors recently approved a multi-
million dollar modernization plan for
improved production and energy con-
servation in its Container, Woodlands
and Mill divisions. The project will
begin in mid-1980 and will take three to
five years for completion.
the Company has 19 container
plants located throughout the south,
midwest, and northeast. Expen-

ditures at these locations will be
primarily for modern high speed
replacement equipment.
The Woodlands Division has eight'
units located in Northwest Florida and
South Georgia. Woodlands Division
expenditures will be for replacement of
heavy equipment as well as additional
new equipment to provide more effi-
cient forest management. This division
plants over 20 million seedlings each

year in its constant re-forestation 1
The mill division will purchase a.
new boiler which will burn oil, wood...
waste, and by-product fuels.
The Port St. Joe, mill will in-
stall additional wood chip hand-
ling facilities as well as other
equipment needed in further
energy conservation.

their objections before the

Two Florida Power Corpor-
4 ation executives told a meet-
ing of members of the Apala-
chee Planning Council in
Chipley Friday night that Gulf'
County is a strong contender
for location of a new coal-fired
electric generating plant,
which will start construction
in early 1982.
Rusty Wooten, speaking for
the utility which serves Port
St. Joe and the Beaches area
in Gulf County, said that their
choice of sites on which to
locate the plant, which started
with about 20 prospects, has
been narrowed to only two,
with Gulf County being a
strong contender.
Wooten showed maps of the
proposed. location in Gulf
County, which would be along
the south shore of the Gulf
County Canal, occupying
some 200 plus acres in an area
south of the junction of the
Gulf County and the Intra-
coastal Canal.
Wooten said the utility will
need some additional 910
megawatts of generating ca-
pacity in the 1980's, which
started the utility to looking
for a new generating site a
year ago.
After the sifting action by
the firm, the two sites - one
here in Gulf County, near Port
jASt. Joe, and another in Osceola
county - remain to be consi-
"Both possible sites are
being studied with the same
criteria", Wooten said. The

decision of the company as to
a final location for the plant
will come some time next
year. Construction is schedul-
ed to start in the first quarter
of 1982, depending on whether
or not there are delays in
receiving the necessary licen-
sing and permits.
If the plant is built on the
proposed Gulf County site, the
construction would have a
considerable economic impact
on the county as a whole.
Wooten said the utility is
planning to construct two 910
megawatt units to be coal
A study is currently being
made in Gulf County to secure
an adequate water supply for
the generating operation. He
said the plant needs water for
its boilers and cooling water.
"We are considering three
sources", he said. These are:
constructing a canal or pipe
line from the Chipola River;
securing water from Lake
Wimico or from the Intracoas-
tal Waterway. If the latter is
chosen, the firm will be forced
to drill deep wells to secure
boiler water, since the Water-
way source would supply
brackish water.
The source of fuel supply
would be the coal fields of
Illinois, Wyoming, Appala-
The plant would use four to
six million tons of coal a year,
which would mean one sea-
going or six river barges a day

to supply the appetite of the
plant. If the utility is forced to
ship by rail, it would require
two 110-car trains per day to
supply the fuel for the plant.
Port St. Joe's edge on being
the final choice lies in the fact
that coal could be shipped
here by water transportation,
considerably cheaper than
rail shipment.
The problem facing a choice
of Gulf County is that if the
plant is built here, it would
require construction of two 250
mile transmission lines to
transport the power, at a cost
estimated to be $1 million per
Wooten said the company is
now weighing the economics
of one area against the other.
Economically, construction
of the plant in Gulf County
would mean some six and a
half years of construction
during which time, an average
of 750 men would be working
on construction of the plant,
peaking out at about 1,400 men
The plant would mean an
additional $350 million annual
payroll for Gulf County.
After the plant is completed,
it will require an employee
force of about 200 to operate.
Both the Apalachee Plan-
ning Council and the Port St.
Joe-Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce is working with the
firm in making its final
decision as to where to locate
its generating plant.

.Three Cheers for Rep. Tom Bush, Sen. Joe Carlucci

Let's hear three cheers for State Repre-
%,sentative Tom Bush of Fort Lauderdale and
. Senator Joe Carlucci of Jacksonville.
These'two members of the State Legisla-
Zture'have filed companion bills to require the
teaching of an alternative theory to evolution
I in the public schools. Rep. Bush says,
c "evolution is now being mandated by
|i innuendo to be taught in public schools as an
wunquestioned fact of science and that's not
-true. The more I study it, the more I find that
1�, evolution is much more myth than the account
im Genesis could ever be.".
:Rep. Bush goes on to say, "�I personally
believe God created the universe and the earth
and I believe there's scientific evidence for
that." This belief is what prompted Rep. Bush
and Sen. Carlucci to file their companion bills.
Under the proposed bills, school teachers
would be required to teach a "theory of
I scientific creationism", which substantiates
_ the teachings in Genesis, when they teach
" Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.
Opponents of the proposed bills contend
that such a teaching may violate the
separation of church and state ordered by the
First Amendment. We say it will not violate
this portion of the Constitution any more than
the required teaching of Darwin's theory.

There are "churches" which have adopted
Darwin's theory. Of course they are not
churches which teach the Bible and its
contents, but they call themselves churches
just the same. So, if we are going to split hairs
on violating the separation of "church" and
state, we are already doing it in the teaching
of Darwin's theory.
Scientific creationism is generally defined
in the bill as a theory holding that there was a
sudden creation of the universe and life. That
is also the teachings in Genesis, which says
God did all that in a period of six days and

rested on the seventh. The bill filed by Bush
and Carlucci. disputes Darwin's theory that
man evolved from a common ancestry with
apes through a process of mutation and
natural selection.
We think a school curriculum should be in
the business of teaching fact and not fancy.
Even those who promote Darwin's theory
label it just that - a theory. A theory is
nothing more than a guess.
We won't argue the fact of proof of the
outline of how the universe was formed in

Genesis. We believe it to be true and believe
there is ample evidence in nature today to
substantiate the fact, if one is looking for
nothing but cold black and white facts to back
up the Bible conception of how the earth was
formed. The Bible itself states that it tells its
story to mankind to be accepted on faith based
on the evidence it gives. Darwin has no such
Even if the Bible were strictly theory,
which it isn't, we would much rather have our
children be exposed to its "theory" than the
fairy tale dreamed up by Darwin.

Proposed County Ordinance Would Help

We believe a new proposed ordinance by
the County Commission is necessary for our
county. The Commission, under the insistence
of Commissioner Billy Branch, is proposing an
ordinance which would require owners of
property throughout the county to keep their
places presentable and keep the accumulation
of junk and unsightly areas to a minimum.
We can agree with the idea that those
who live in out-of-the-way places should have
the ordinance applied to them in a more lax
manner, but inhabited areas should be kept in

a manner which indicated human beings
reside in the area.
One hang-up with the ordinance has
caused objections to a portion which would
require the removal of buildings which are in
an unsafe condition for habitation. One
Commissioner, Leo Kennedy, says there are
now people living in such buildings in Gulf
County and objects to requiring a person's
home to be torn down.
This objection on the part of Commission-
er Kennedy could easily be overcome by

applying the ordinance only to uninhabited
buildings which have been partially burned, in
* a bad state of dis-repair or rotting down.
We believe such an ordinance would
rarely have to be invoked, but it would go a
long way toward encouraging residents
throughout the county to clean up their places
and keep the county in a well-kept condition.
Removing blighted areas in the county
would help us all to have more pride in this
part of Florida in which we live.

lutto Urges Ringing of Church Bells, Prayer

. On behalf of the families of
American hostages still being
Sheld in Iran, Congressman
Earl D. Hutto (D. Panama
City) recently urged houses of
worship throughout the Pan-
handle to ring bells every day
al noon as long as the
/4ericans are being held to
1cll the nation to prayer and
cpptemplation for the safety of

the hostages.
Hutto said the original re-
quest for ringing of bells came
in a Thanksgiving Day mes-
sage to the American people
by Bruce Laingen, the Ameri-
can charge d'affaires in Teh-
ran, on behalf of the hostages
there.. Laingen is the senior
American official being held
in Iran.

This is the message Laingen
sent from Iran this week: "In
our prayers of thanks for the
safe return of the first of the
hostages, of hope for the early
release of those who remain,
and for -strength in standing
firm for what we believe is
right, let us ask God's guid-
ance that the two countries, in
all they do and say, will act on

the basis of humanity and
restraint. Let the Nation's
church bells ring with that
message and that hope."

Hutto urged use of the
message from the hostages
this weekend in worship ser-
vices throughout the nation.

chomping on his King Edward and
running his hand across his unstylish
So, in order to sooth Bill, who

- -

evidently was in a state of dillusion or
something, I grabbed my coat, my
sweater and my determination and
followed Bill out of the door,
Thursday is my day to sort of
recover from Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday and regroup for the week to
come, so there wasn't too much left
behind undone on a work day.
WE ARRIVED at the Country Club

with Bill announcing to everyone there,
"Old Wes has been a member of this
club ever since it was formed and now
he's going to play his first game of
golf." To me it sounded like he was

announcing, "I have a pigeon here and I
want you guys to come out and see the
comedy show he's going to put on for
Since I had never had a golf club in
my hand before except one time very
briefly to hit two balls, it was bound to
be some show.
Bill insisted he could show me how
it was done, so we got in a cart and

headed out.
Bill took the hill and the club and
said, "Here's how you do it", explain-
ing just how I should hold the bat, stand
and swing at the ball. I did just what he

said, took a mighty swing and the ball
dribbled off to the left for about 50 feet
and came to rest on the edge of the
I was ready to quit right then, but
Bill said, "That's a good hit, let's do it
again". I knew Bill was lying because I
had watched golf enough on TV (the
only place I had ever seen it played)
and I knew the ball was supposed to

take off like a soaring eagle and fly in a
direct line toward the little flag which
stood waving in the breeze some 300
yards away.
Well, to make a long first hole story
short, under Bill's guidance, I got the
ball in the hole in 15 strokes. I made the
green in a fairly respectable manner,
but when I took the putter in my hand
under instructions to "just tap it
lightly", I tapped it lightly and the ball
took off all the way across the green
like it was jet propelled.
JAMES GUNTER was at the
course at the same time we were and he
decided to play along with us to get in
his laughs for the day. Old serious-
faced James had what seemed to me to
be a perpetual grin on his face all the
way around the nine holes we played,
but insisted he wasn't laughing at me.
Bill went along with his usual
smooth game which I am told he plays
and I struggled to keep the ball in the
fairway and out of the water. Except
for one occasion when I got in the
rough, I was successful on both counts.
Of course, I was on one side after one

stroke and the other on the next, but, in
a zig-zag pattern, I made the round.
I FINISHED UP in the dark, with a
nine on number nine, but I made it
around. I guess you could say I have
been initiated. Whether I will join the
club which has to play regularly
remains to be seen.
Bill says he is going to drag me out
again on occasion and make a golfer out
of me. If he does, I'm going to suggest
that he quit teaching school and go to
teaching Arnold Palmer and Jack
Nicklaus. Making. a golfer out of me
would prove he definitely has other
At least in trying to teach me, he
has some innocent meat to work with.
He can tell me to do anything and I will
have no pre-conveived notion as to
whether he is wrong or right.
All I know is, I made the nine holes
in 87 strokes and finished with the same
ball I started with. Bill and James
An 87 isn't too bad. It's a passing
grade. Maybe if I go out enough I'll
eventually get up to 100.

Mail Those Santa Letters Early

With only two and a half
weeks left until Christmas,
it's more imperative than
ever that all you kids get
your letter ready to Santa
Letters to Santa are

The dispute had to do with
what the firms termed a
mis-representation of the
amount of work they had to do
at the plant, which involved
removal of muck on the
construction site. The firms
went broke on the job, due to
the excessive amount of dirt
they had to remove as the job
Rish said the City still has to
deal with Peabody-Peterson,
the prime contractor on the
construction, but he felt the
settlement reached this week
would strengthen the City's
position in the final settle-
The City is still holding
some $500,000 on the construc-
tion project, pending a final
decision by the courts as to
just how much the City owes
on a job it claims did not meet
the time-table and several
areas of improper procedure
in the construction.
The City extended a possible
application of a penalty
against Sylvachem for not
adherring to its specifications
in what it sends to the City's
Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The firm has been charged by
the City with sending material
to the plant it wasn't designed
to accept and which Sylva-
chem wasn't allowed to send
under its agreement with the
City. The firm is also charged
by the .City with sending
an amount of material greater
than its original agreement.
The City had given the firm
a 30-day notice to clean up its
act or a penalty of double
charges would be levied

Due to the degree of cooper-
ation of the local plant, the
City decided to extend the
notice for another 60 days to
give the plant ample time to
come within compliance.
The original 30-day notice
was up on November 21.
The Commission agreed
unanimously Tuesday night to
purchase a new computer to
keep the City's records and do
bookkeeping chores, such as

billing, check-writing and cost
The new machine, to be
furnished by the National

the low bid of three, asked for
by the City. The new machine,
with all its working programs

The new machine was pur-

machine is constantly giving

about as much time as it is
operable. In order tomake

sure the new machine fills the
job description it is supposed

"Service to the Nation" is
the watchword of the National
Society Daughters of the
American Revolution, and it
was in service to her nation
that Mrs. George U. Baylies,
President General, wrote the
booklet, "Know the DAR",
inspiring its members to even
greater dedication, and at-
tracting other eligible women

to membership in this great
organization. The booklet re-
veals that DAR's aims are
Historical, Educational, and
Patriotic and expresses pride
in the DAR headquarters in
Washington, a beautiful block
of buildings erected and paid
for by the American women
who make up its membership.
DAR was founded October

11, 1890 by a few patriotic-
women who wanted "to honor
those men and women whose
sacrifices made our country
free and independent". They
also wanted "to perpetuate
those freedoms for which our
ancestors fought", and with a
beginning of 18 women and
$33.00 in dues, NSDAR has
through the years become one

of America's success stories,
now numbering 210,000,

Colson Film

At Beach
In the midst of this nation's
worst political scandal, an
amazing transformation took
place. While Nixon's presi-
dency was crumbling under
the onslaught of Watergate,
Charles Colson, Special White
house Counsel, underwent a
spiritual rebirth that gave him
the strength to weather the
political storm and emerge
with a fresh purpose in life.
His climb to the heights of
, power and his fall to the dark
corridors of a federal prison
are dramatically captured in
the startling feature length
film, "Born Again", which is
scheduled for a special show-
ing Sunday night, December 9
at 6:30 at Beach Baptist
With Dean Jones in the
starring role, "Born Again"
faithfully recreates the ever-
tightening swirl of events that
culminates in Colson's" convic-
tion...and leads you through
the personal struggles that led
- to his rebirth at a time when
he was being, wrenched from
his family.

After a brief recess in
observance of Thanksgiving,
Congress reconvened again on
Monday, November 26th, to
continue the work of the 96th
Congress. On the legislative
calendar are a number of
measures which might have
_Ibeen left until early iext .year
1pbad not the Congress fallen
behind' this year on various
,pieces of major legislation.
There is, however, a benefit
Sto many people by the
availability of extra work days
'here in Washington. Numerous
pieces of legislation affecting
various and sundry issues will
be considered by committees
and debated on the House and
Senate floors. Most will.be
beneficial to you in the long
run. For example, the Con-
gress will be able to consider
more private legislation than is
often possible, thus allowing
for needy immigration cases to
be addressed and other'
measures such as private relief
bills for individuals and
In other areas of legisla-
tion, the Congress has been
working on items such as Na-
tional Guard training duty,
ROTC scholarships for
military junior colleges, and
Resource Conservation and
Recoyery Act amendments.
Furthermore, the House will be
taking up numerous con-
ference reports as they are
completed and returned to
each house for consideration.
� Also, during these few
weeks, I will be spending a
great deal of time on the many
projects pending in our
District. Possibly with fewer

committee meetings, I will be
able to clear some log-jams
which have held some projects

Non-public Schools
I recently noted in a state
publication that approximately
12% of school-age young
people in Florida attend non-
pUbtbi"c schoIs: The aticled
went on to point out that,
while only about half of .these
schools are accredited .by
private accrediting agencies,
approximately 70% of their
graduates carried 'on their
education in public community
colleges, private two-year col-
leges, in-state and out-of-state
public and private universities,
as compared to 66% in the
previous year. Apparently
'these non-puolic institutions
have completed their
"shakedown" cruise and are
now settling in for the long
This fact has placed an add-
ed pressure on 'the Congress
and it is a growing pressure.
More taxpayers are seeking
some tax credit for themselves
if they are paying to put their
children through private
schools. While the Congress
has not yet been inclined to
provide -blanket tax relief,
some signs are appearing that
its time may come. Already, at
the college level, the federal
programs.have been broadened
to include more assistance for
private' education. It probably
will now be more readily
available at the elementary and
secondary levels in future
years. Tax incentives, though,
are only one of many options

Due to the increasing
enrollment in non-public
schools, the professional
bureaucrat educators are pay-
ing greater attention to them.
Now, instead of ignoring them,
the state and federal educators
are in some cases accepting the
role of private education as a
partner and not as a com-
petitor. Ultimately, I hope this
understanding will lead to bet-
ter education for our children.
But, we must guard against
government intrusion into
education in private institu-

"Smokey" Still

American Hero

American youngsters run
through more heroes these
days than you can keep up
with, but one "oldtimer" that
is as popular today as he was
when he was introduced thir-
ty-three years ago is Smokey
The living symbol for forest
fire prevention continues to
receive over 450 letters a day
from youngsters throughout
the country, and he greets
over three million visitors
each year at the National Zoo
in Washington, D.C.
Most folks know that the
original Smokey was a real-to-
life casualty of a large,
Western forest fire. As a two
month old cub, he was rescued
by fire fighters, nursed back
to health and given a home at
the National Zoo to be a
reminder of the terrible tra-
gedy of wildfire.
And through three decades
since then men clad in Smokey
suits have hugged millions of
smallfry and warned them
about the danger of playing
with fire. His presence will be
noted at thousands of schools,
libraries, clubs and other
gatherings this week (Oct.
7-13) as America observed
National Fire Prevention
Smokey's most famous
words are: "Remember, only
you can prevent forest fires."
The Florida Division of For-
estry wholeheartedly agrees.
. Last year in Florida the
Division of Forestry respond-
ed to 6,878 fires. More than

85,700 acres were damaged by
these blazes. And that was a
good year!
"Florida has been very
fortunate for a long time as far
as forest fire losses are
concerned," notes Division
Director John M. Bethea. "We
like to think that it's because
Florida's citizens are con-
scious of the fact that 'only
they' can prevent fires.
"Still, mah-caused fires con-
tinue to be far-and-away the
most common type of wildfire.
Not all of them are malicious,
but a staggering 'number
Division records show that
92 percent of all the fires it
fought in 1978 were man
caused and 31 percent of those
were intentionally set.
"Florida is approaching its
traditional fire season," Be-
thea warned. "Right now most
of the state is in pretty good
shape as far as ground mois-
ture is concerned, but once the
cooler weather arrives that
situation can turn around
quickly. A notable difference
is seen when an area goes
without rain for even a few
days when its cool.
"Forest fires are so destruc-
tive, and so unnecessary,"
Bethea continues. "We urge
everyone to be aware that a
moment of carelessness can
be very expensive...expensive
in terms of money, in terms of
destroying a resource that
takes years to replace, and
sometimes in terms of life

Traffic fatalities continue to

Highway Patrol recently.
T Preliminary figures indi-
S cae that traffic deaths
through November 25, 1979,
totaled 2,275 as compared to
. 1,990 during the same time in
1978 and 1,763 in 1977.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
'trol director said, "This
/ Amounts to a 14 percent
increase in Florida's motor-

Rural deaths have increas-
ed:at a ten percent rate and
urban deaths are up 22 percent
for the current year.
-Beach said, "Since the
increase in deaths covers
pedestrians, motorcyclists
and motorists, it is difficult to
pinpoint one cause. Excessive
speed for the conditions pre-
sent shows up in many of the
fatal crashes and could be
pointed out as a major fac-

driving were the two leading
contributing circumstances in
