County Drivers




Lose Licenses


Face Dismissal by Board


Four members of the Coun-
ty Road Department do not
have valid drivers' licenses,
nor chauffeurs' licenses the
County was notified this week
by their insurance carrier.
The carrier warned the county
they could not continue to keep
insurance in force with the
four drivers not licensed to
drive.
This revelation was a sur-
prise to the County Commis-
sioners, especially in a depart-
ment whose performance re-
quires the driving and main-
tenance and operation of
equipment on the highways.
The insurance firm notified
the county two of the men
have not 1had valid licenses
since 1977 and a third lost his
license five months ago. The
fourth had no chauffeurs'
license, but he is a CETA
employee and is not operating
equipment.
Part of the job description
for working for the Road
Department is that the pros-
pective employee have a valid
drivers' license and be eligible
for a chauffeurs' license.
Two of the men without
licenses lost them due to
Florida's financial responsi-
bility law. This means they
evidently had accidents with
no insurance in the past and
had their licenses revoked as a
result. The third man lost his
license on a DWI charge.
Attorney William J. Rish
* remarked, to the Boads,_"Tf[
somebody has been driving for
us for two' to three years
without a license, we've been
lucky."
When asked about the mat-
ter, Road Superintendent,
Lloyd Whitfield said, "If one
of our men loses his license,
they don't run up and tell us
about it. Who's supposed to
notify us of suspended licen-
ses?" Nobody seemed to
know.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said,
"If you will supply our depart-
ment with a list of names
periodically, we'll check them
out for valid licenses."
The Board then unanimous-
ly approved a motion by
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-


man'to give the four employ-
ees until January 8 to get their
licenses reinstated or report to
the Board they were making
an effort to get them reinstat-
ed or face termination. In the
meanwhile, the four men will
be relieved of their duties so
far as driving a vehicle is
concerned.
BACK INBUSINESS
After Wewahitchka notified
the Board at budget time they
wished to discontinue their re-
creation director in the north
end of the county, they have,
changed their mind and asked
the Board. Tuesday to put
$4,500 into the Gulf County
pool to furnish them with a
director.
Chairman Doug Birming-
ham told the Board the City
Commission of Wewahitchka
has recently voted to get back
into the program with their
$4,500 contribution and the
School Board has said they
will cooperate with the state


money they get for that
purpose.
Birmingham then vacated
the chair to Commissioner
James Tankersley and made
the motion to furnish the
county portion of $4,500.
Commissioner Billy Branch
asked where the money was
coming from. "We didn't
budget it", a'statement which
finance officer Jerry Gates
verified.
Gates said the funding could
come from the contingency
fund of the revenue sharing
account, "but it would wipe:
out the contingency fund."
The Board voted unani-.
mously, over objections of
Commissioner Leo Kennedy.
that it wasn't safe to wipe out
the fund so early in the year,
to wipe it out.

Deluge Drops 5.8




Inches of Moisture

The rain came last Wednesday night, breaking a .long dry spell here in the
Panhandle and also pushing away a cold spell which had brought record cold
temperatures for this time of the year for nearly two weeks.
The heavy downpour started sometime around midnight last Wednesday night
and continued until nearly mid-morning in torrents Thursday. The precipitation
didn't stop until Thursday afternoon, and during that period of time, 5.8 inches fell,
most if it between midnight Wednesday and 8:00 a.m., Thursday morning.
Such heavy rains, as well as near freezing temperatures are uncommon here in
North Florida in the early winter, but they happened this year. Before the rain came,
pushing the cold off somewhere else, temperatures reached the freezing point at night
in some spots before the warming trend set in, bringing back the nice fall days Gulf
* County is accustomed to.
The rains caused flooding in Port St. Joe and surrounding areas, due to the flat
land and lack of natural drainage. Storm sewers just couldn't carry the rain water off
as fast as it fell, nor did the drains have anywhere to put the water, since the bay was
experiencing a high tide at this particular time.
The photograph of the home at right wasn't an unusual sight in Port St. Joe
early Thursday morning. Even areas of the City which are normally high and dry,
had a yard full of water after the deluge. As the tides fell and the water had some
place to go, the surface water drained off rapidly. -Star photo


ILatest Assessment Test Results Show County Student Imprc


Results from the Florida State
Student Assessment Tests arrived in
School Superintendent Walter Wilder's
office last week. All Gulf County
students in grades 3, 5, 8, and 11 were
given these tests in October 1979. In
addition, tests were administered to
students in grade 12 who previously had
failed one or both sections, or who had
moved into the county since the last
testing.
According to Superintendent Wilder,
the 11th graders have demonstrated
steadily increasing progress each year
since the initial testing in 1977 when
passage became a requirement for the


awarding of a diploma. Wilder stated.
"Students are taking the tests more
seriously, and our curriculum has been
revised to insure that students have
every opportunity to master these basic
skills in reading, writing, and mathe-
matics."
On SSAT-I, the basic skills portion,
which students must pass before
receiving a diploma, of the 184 students
in grade 11 tested county-wide, 84
percent passed the communications
section and 85 percent passed mathe-
matics. This reflects an overall growth
of seven percent and 13 percent respec-
tively since 1977. Ninety-eight percent


passed the communications section on
SSAT-II (formerly called the Function-
al Literacy Test) for an increase of five
percent, while 77 percent passed
mathematics, an increase of 18 percent.
In Communication Skills, students
in grades three and five mastered basic
vocabulary skills; however, 8th grad-
ers were weak in this area. Students in
both grades were able to capitalize
correctly. Third graders could find
information in a 'message, but had
problems in recognizing irrevelant and
invalid statements and in using appro-
priate reference skills.
Fifth grade students could compose


grammatically correct sentences. They
were weak in determining word mean-
ing from word parts, but students in the
eighth grade were proficient in this
skill. Supplying necessary information,
filling out common forms, and-deter-
mining generalities supplied by a
message were strengths of eighth
graders. They had problems identifying
fantasy, fact, and opinion.
Eighth and llth grade students were
able to follow oral and written
directions. While llth graders could
determine the main idea of a message,
eighth graders were weak in this skill.
Eleventh grade students could organize
information, but were weak in punctua-


tion.
Students in grades three and five
showed their greatest mathematical
strengths in reading and writing
numerals and in adding whole num-
bers. Fifth graders were also quite
strong in adding -whole numbers, as
well as in counting quantities and
identifying the value of coins and bills.
They need improvement in their ability
to divide whole numbers. While fifth
grade students were weak in the
interpretation of graphs, tables, and
maps, eighth graders showed strength
in this skill. In the eighth grade
students mastered the adding and.
subtraction of decimals, but had


cement

problems adding and subtracting frac-
tions, as well as multiplying and
dividing decimals. Solving money
problems was a weakness in grades
three, five and eight.
Eleventh graders showed proficiency
in identifying equivalent fractions,
decimals, and percent, but were weak
in solving problems with decimals,
fractions and percent.
. Weaknesses identified through test
data are remediated in regular classes,
as well as in the elementary and
secondary compensatory programs.
Parents of students who need "special
help will receive periodic notification
as to student needs and progress.


Finally-Dredge



Permit Granted

County Attorney William J. Rish announced to the
County Commission Tuesday morning at their regular
meeting that a permit has finally been worked out and
issued to.the IU.LS. Ar.mny Corps oJ,Enginegirs to dredge
the entrance channel to Port St. Joe harbor.
The permit came after nearly a year of urging the
Department of Environmental Regulation to come up
with a plan to dispose of spoil which would make the
project economically feasible and still environmen-
tally safe. Hundreds of phone calls, letters and
personal visits to the DER and Cabinet members were
expended, along with thousands of hours of work on the
part of local officials, before the permit was finally
issued by DER director Jake Varnes late last week.
The permit will allow the Corps of Engineers to
deepen and widen a spot about 1,100 yards long where
the entrance channel swings close to the end of St.
Joseph's Peninsula, coming into St. Joseph Bay. A part
of the end of the Peninsula has washed into the
channel, cutting off about half the width of the
waterway into the bay. The silting of the channel has
forced tankers to use the entrance to the bay only
during daylight hours and with less than a full load.

Ted Kennedy Visits Chappaquiddick Once More


Teddy Kennedy has driven off that bridge
at Chappaquiddick again.
It. Last week, he swerved his campaign
juggernaut and slammed right through the
' fence of American opinion when he criticized
.. the deposed Shah of Iran at a time when
President Carter and the leadership of the
.. ,. Government were walking a tight-rope in
'.'trying to gain release of the American
h^', hostages now being held in Iran.
Like ,Chappaquidick, Kennedy didn't tell
'- anyone he was going on this trip, or likely
l -; -some of his supporters would have tried to
h stop him. So, he got himself in the drink of
S A... Americar criticism once again at a time when
", it would have been better for him to have
j .stayed at home.
Not anly did Kennedy alienate the
47 American people with his remarks concerning
S the Shah, he also irritated 120 women's groups
"- about remarks he made concerning women's
" " rights. Kennedy is in hot water with the ladies
" for failure to appoint women to positions of
power, his reputation as a womanizer and for
" his now-famous part in the death of a female
, companion at Chappaquiddick and his delay in
doing anything about it.


As it was with Chappaquiddick, Kennedy
realized he had stepped in it again when the
light of the next day hit his statements and his
actions, and he tried to get out of the muddle
as best he could with a few well-chosen words.
Most of us realize the first statements
made about such matters usually reflect our
true feelings, and the prepared rebuttal is
usually tailored to mollify those of us who
have had our feathers ruffled with the first
statement..


Taking both statements under considera-
tion, we are prone to believe the first
statement' would govern his course of action
were he in a position to carry out his wishes.
As for the ladies position, though we are not
pro-ERA, we join those ladies in their
criticism of his past actions concerning the
feminine gender.
It jusi isn't seemly for a man in Kennedy's
present position to be chasing women,
especially when he is married to a lady he still


considers his wife. It just isn't the proper thing
to do, and if anybody in the country is
"proper" it should be a representative of the
United States Government.
While we haven't been particularly fond of
some of President Carter's accomplishments
in his tenure in the Presidency, we can rest
easy that he will do the proper thing when it
comes to his personal deportment. At least we
can depend on his honesty, his integrity and
his morals. That goes a long way in our book.


One Frill We Should Introduce In Schools


When our school finances begin to get into
trouble, the first thing we hear is "do away
with some of the frills."
One cf the poorest school districts in the
nation is in Liberty, Oklahoma, but they
maintain a frill which might very well become
a mandatory "frill" for every school in the
nation and we would all probably be better off
for it.
The Liberty school maintains a class in
teaching good manners. Even though it is
short on cash, it teaches good manners.


We started school in the Oklahoma system
and we remember well our teacher teaching
us table manners, how to set a table, how to
eat properly, and how to be mannerly toward
those around us.
The principal of the Liberty school stated,
"everyone in the school can prosper from this
course, whether he is gifted or not."
In these days of "not getting involved"
maybe we would do well to give a little
attention to the manners of our students so


that, possibly, in years to come, we could
revive good manners toward others in our
nation. It could solve a lot of our present
problems inside and outside the school
system.

With all we read these days about violence
in schools, especially urban schools, maybe a
good stif" course in good manners, made
mandatory, would be to the advantage of the
schools, the taxpayers and certainly to the
students.

Matthew 12:37, Romans
10:9 (KJV)
Key Word: Words
iMatthew 12:271 "For by
thy words shalt thou be
justified, and by thy words
thou shall be condemned."
(Romans 10-9) "Thou if
thou shalt confess with thy
mouth the Lord Jesus, and
shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him up
from the dead, thou shalt be
saved "
When a person becomes
aware of how much negativ-
ism is voiced everyday from
those (and us) around us, we
tend to become cautious of our
words. Just stop and listen to
what is going on. You hear
words of death, fear, sickness,
hatred, and all other words of
negativism everywhere. We
have been trained to voice
fear and negative words by
our enemy Satan. The Christ-
ian especially should be very
careful of this for God's word
says our words carry right-
eousness or condemnation.
Once a person is born again,
he has eternal life and nega-
tive words have no place in
our lives. How many times
have you seen fear, hysteria,


and even sickness brought on
someone by their voicing
negative thoughts. We are to
have a proper confession, a
faithful confession. If you
stay reading and studying
God's Word on faith, then your
negative confession will go
and you will have a positive
one. But, you must deliberate-
ly decide to do it. Y'u know
faith comes by hearing the
Word of God. So does a
positive confession.

Florida Power tell us the latest on the

After we all arrived, Billy Joe Rish
got tapped on the shoulder by Ed
Leuch, director of the Apalachee
Planning Council and asked to sort of
introduce the program for the night.
Billy Joe got up to the microphone
and began to tell some of his jokes while
welcoming the room full of visitors to
the meeting.
Billy Joe looked down at Represen-
tative Sam Mitchell, from up in those
parts around Chipley, who is sinfully
huge in size and said: "Sam, I just want
to warn you about being a Legislator
now that you are entering your first
term without the 'Pork Chop Gang'."
Billy Joe said, "Way back when I
first entered the Legislature, I was just
as big as you are now, but those guys
from South Florida beat me on the head
so many times, they beat me down to
my present stature, so I just want to
warn you to watch your step."
I think those bad Legislators from
South Florida did Billy Joe a favor. He
is now a reasonable size and height
(about my size) and not the ungainly
bulk of Rep. Sam Mitchell, who would
make two of us ordinary human beings.

I was watching WFSU-TV educa-
tion channel the other evening and an
executive from the Department said it
for me. She said a shopper gets his best
deal when he shops in his home town
with merchants he knows.
I didn't catch -her name, but the
person said the advantages of shopping
in such a manner are so many that a
shopper is doing himself harm when he
doesn't do it.
She said, and I'm quoting, "a
person who shops with merchants he
knows may pay a few pennies more, but
the time saved, "the money saved in
travel and the ability to return.
defective merchandise is much more of
a plus in savings and lack of frustration
than any small amount of money saved
by going to the large stores." She
pointed out that in most cases, a large
discount type store will not take
returned defective merchandise back,
while the small home-town merchant is
usually prone to try to satisfy his
customer.
She made sense.

Gulf Schools Given



Extra State Money


Gulf County Schools will
receive a windfall of money
from the State of Florida,
along with other school dis-
tricts in the state, but the
money isn't free from restric-
tions, according to Superin-
tendent of Schools B. Walter
Wilder.
Wilder told The Star this
week, Gulf county will receive
$56,213 in extra money to be
used for extra maintenance.
"Wecan't use it for the
maintenance we think needs
doing most", Wilder said.
"Primarily the money must
be used for maintenance prob-
lems which aren't giving us
much of a problem at this
time. Really, the money
seems to have been set aside
to help construction firms
which are not now working
than it is to meet any real
need."
Wilder said the real need
throughout the district is roof
work and he said the School
Board is going to,- make ;an
attempt,to use ,the..money, to'
solve these problems. "We
can get more mileage out of
the money if we can follow our
plan", Wilder said.
The Superintendent said the
Board intends to try to use the
state bonus money to pur-


chase a' foam roof applicator
and use school personell to
repair and re-cover all the
roofs owned by the District in
the county. Wilder said, "We
find this type roof seems to
work better with our flat roofs
and we have found out it cuts
our utility costs considerably
in cooling and heating".
Wilder said all of the school
buildings in the county have
roof problems to some degree
and he and the Board feels
they could eliminate much of
this problem if they can get.
the State to go along with their
plans.
"We would also like to use
part of the money to do some
paving repairs and cover
some walkways at Port St. Joe
Elementary Schools, all of
which are much more needed
than the repairs outlined by

Hospital Auxiliary


Recognizes Service


The Hospital Auxiliary en-
tertained their members and
several guests at a Christmas
dinner last Thursday night at
the Garden Center on Eighth
Street.
Mrs. Ira Gorham, president
recognized all of the new
officers for the coming year
and had one of her officers,
Mrs. Louise Parker, present
retiring president, Mrs. Ida
Copenhaver with a gift of
appreciation for her energetic
guidance of the Auxiliary
during the past year.
The members and guests
enjoyed a covered dish dinner
and were entertained by Miss
Ann Aldridge who sang Christ-
mas carols while accompany-
ing herself on the guitar.
Mrs. Gorham declared the
Auxiliary "was on the move"'
due to the hard work of the
members and officers of the
organization and said they
would be working even harder
this coming year to build
confidence in the institution
and improve the atmosphere
for those who had to be


serves all of Gulf County and
parts of Franklin and Bay
county.
"We intend to continue
offering the people of this area
a service they can depend on.
If anyone has $2.00 or $2
million, he can knock on the
emergency room door at
Municipal and get treatment.
You can't say this about all
hospitals."
Pate pointed out that the
emergency room costs the
Hospital about $120,000 a year
, "and this is money the Hospi-
tal doesn't have. If it were not
for this service, we would get
along fine financially, but we
wouldn't be offering our peo-
ple the medical care they
need."'
Mrs. Gorham introduced the
new officers for* the coming
year, which include: Hellen

ident;: Louise -Parker, second
Vice-President; Ida Copen-

Mayor Frank Pate spoke to o
the Auxiliary, praising them
for their efforts and stating, 9
"We need more like you. The
hospital belongs to you, the
people and is there for .your
use."
Pate said, "Nobody cares C
about the hospital until they
need it, and then they are glad
it is there."
Pate outlined some of the
problems which face the hos-
pital, most of which have to do
with the expense of maintain-
ing a staffed emergency room
service around the clock,
seven days a week. "It costs R..
us a lot of money and the City
gets no help, financially, from
anywhere in maintaining this
service." The' Mayor stated

4Should


Reduce


!recks
,E1i' Gasoline shortages, expect-
ted by some to bring about a
'� education in highway acci-
'llnts, are .likely to have
exactlyy the opposite effect.
r^'iThere are several reasons
4 r this, according to an
article, "Highway Crashes
'i cl. the Energy Crunch," in
i ! N9vember-December is-
of the "Journal. of Insur-
,| e"f, a publication of the
surahe Information Insti-
I | e. " . "
The author; Dr. Edmund J.
antilli, professor of tiranspor-
ition planning and engineer-
ig at the Polytechnic Insti-
ite of'New. York, and presi-
ent of the Institute for Safety.
'1.4n Transportation, cites these
actors:
S -As gasoline prices rise
and availability shrinks, the
nd is to smaller and small-
' cars. The small cars not.,
0nly are likely to sustain more
A tensive damagein collisions
an larger, heavier cars, but
"they also afford occupants less
protectionn against injury.
A'AOthler point is that the
:( smaller cars have less clear-
kance ,off the ground, and thus
Jare more likely to strike
l.: 'objects in the roadway. At the
!same time, the driver's line of
sight is lowered, making it
i-,"i2nore difficult to see an object
x'. within safe stopping distance,
1J and reducing the distance that
ean be seen over the top of a
|t ,.:;r:lse.
- While cars are getting
smaller, lighter and closer to
i. ' �he ground, trucks are getting
.bigger, longer, heavier and
Sigher off the ground. In
addition, there arew more
trucks and buses on the road.
4, .'"'With larger and larger
S, trucks sharing the same road-
Sways with smaller and smal-
. .jer cars," says the article,
ps "the increasing hazard to
Passenger car drivers is evi-
! dent.
"The problem of the sniall
S:ar versus the increasingly,
": large truck, however, is one
which can only get worse. New
hazards appear, like underrid-
ing of large trucks, or small
-;,' car drivers being unable to see
enough of the road ahead
around the bulk of large (even
dualized) trucks."
S-Add to the mix of cars and
trucks the increasing number
: of motorcycles and mopeds on
:,the roads, a trend encouraged
' by gasoline shortages. The
motorcycle fatality rate is
about five times that for all
vehicles, and mopeds can only
'add to the problem, states Dr.
Cantilli.
-Another factor to consider
is the highway environment:
; "In the past, changes to the
highway itself were made to
S compensate for some safety
problems. But highway design
* changes take too long.to cope
-with some of the year-to-year
vehicle changes taking place.
SJust at a time when we are
trying to deal with single-ve-
liicle, or 'roadside hazard'
accidents by designing 'break-
away' supports or energy-ab-
sorbing, crash-cushioning de-
Vices, lighter cars (and heavi-
er trucks) change the criteria
(of safe design. So-called
'breakaway' light poles and
sign posts designed for heavi-
er cars can kill the occupants
of lighter cars without break-
ing away. The scientifically
designed concrete medial bar-
,- rier cannot contain some of
-the largest, heaviest trucks
.: and.a number of the smallest
cars have tended to climb the
; harrier and flip over."
-These new hazard factors
S are compounded by shortages
of money for road safety and
-maintenance.

. ied the instructions of the

ision from the Road Super-
Snendent that the poles now in
Lquistion could be 'installed at

:a1P now in. He presented a
c y'of a letter written by this

ti'e that directed as follows:
! %'In the future, we would

|i tenance of highways and
ditches." Norris said that he
followed the instructions in

He then told the Board that he
i'; *wpuld have the poles relocat-
'7i ; however, this would be an
,; expensive operation, there-

Beach and Beacon Hill. He
told the Board that he was the
owner of an exclusive ease-
ment over the streets and
, alleyways in St. Joe Beach for
the purpose of installing utility
lines; however, it was neces-
sary to- cut the pavement of
several streets. He said he had
., filed his application with
: .Tommy Pitts. He stated Pitts
informed him this Board was
requiring the pavement not be
cut, but that the pipes be
jacked beneath the surface of
the road. He then explained
.. that jacking the pipe beneath
the streets would add
$20,000.00 to the cost of this
Spioject; .that plastic pipes
wvre being used and it was not
feasible to jack plastic pipe
S into the earth. He called on
S Tm Knox and Stuart Shoaf to
Answer questions with refer-
Sence to the cutting of streets in
Highland View. In a discus-
sion that followed, Commis-
sioner Branch said he was not
in: favor of cutting the paved
streets. Tommy Pitts inform-
ed the Board that he was in
receipt of the application,
which showed 14 to 18 cuts on
paved streets north of Ameri-
cug Avenue.
-There was a motion by
Commissioner Gortman, se-
conded by Commissioner
Branch, and it was unani-
mdusly carried, that the ap-
proval be given at this time for
the cutting of all dirt streets
and that final approval of the
application be tabled for fur-
thr study.

bookkeeper and office mana-
ger was abolished; that he
held this position for 17 years,
which gave him seniority over
all the present operators; and
that he did not advance to
operator because he was
requested to remain on the
office job. He said he now
understood that he could se-
lect the operators job. he
preferred and that he would be
given that job when it was
open, and lie asked the Board
to verify that fact. In a
- discussion that followed, Com-
missioner Branch said that he
understood Davis did have one
opportunity to advance be-
cause of his seniority but did
not take advantage of that
instance. Branch then said he
would not be in favor of Davis
selecting his job position, but
that he be offered the next
operators job that became
open. The Chairman. said he
was in favor of Davis being set
up to operator when there was
a vacancy. The Road Superin-
tendent verified the fact that
he had requested Davis to
remain on the office job.
Jackie Lee Collins told 'the
Board that he was set up to an
operator under the new policy,
but that. he should have
remained on his job as mech-
anic because he had seniority
over the mechanic that re-
mained in the shdp. Commis-
sioner Branch said that all
first class mechanics were on
the scale;' therefore, the Su-
perintendent could work them
on any position that came
under the first class mechanic
classification without consi-
dering seniority.
The Board having adver-
tised to receive bids to sell the
County two: pressure demand
air breathing apparatuses, the

conded by Commissioner Ken-
nedy and it was unanimously-
carried to hold these bids for
study.

The Town of Mexico Beach
informed the Board that the
plans for furnishing water to
the Beach included "T's" and
gate valves for future installa-
tion of adequate hydrants,
that if the County would
defray the cost of the hydrants
.at about $600.00 each, they
could be installed as the line
was constructed. The Board
was not satisfied with this
information. The Chairman
said that the Board was
promised, the fire hydrants
would be provided if thle
County issued a franchise to
,Mexico Beach to come into
the County. Commissioner
Branch made a motion, se-
conded by Commissioner
Gortman, that if the town of
Mexico Beach was going to
furnish water to Gulf Aire
Subdivision, fire hydrants
must be provided as per their
original agreement for the
area between the .subdivision
and the County line. Motion

Board' directed its Adminis-
trative Assistant to so notify
Mexico Tih.

Corps of Engineers requested
permission to construct a
streamflow station on County
property at the George Gaskin
Wayside Park. The Board said
this request was being made
after the streamflow station
had been constructed. The
Board gave its approval, but
requested the Engineers that,
in the future, a request be
made prior to construction.
"The 'State Department of
Transportation, in response to
County Resolution 79-22, re-
questing that S.R. 71 be

ing grant funds to renovate the

our local citizens that work on
the dredge boat must travel

After a discussion, the Board
directed its Attorney to con-
tact members of the United
States Congress in an effort to
have this situation corrected.

quested the Administrative

tation as to the turnout of SR

land owner has backfilled his
lot, causing water to stand on
his neighbor's property; that
it would take 80 feet of
eighteen inch pipe to remedy
this problem. There was a
motion by Commissioner
Branch, seconded by Com-
missioner Tankersley, and it
was unanimously carried, that
pipe be purchased for the
Highland View job, to be paid
for from the 5th and 6th cent
gasoline tax funds.
The Board voted to pay its
engineer, Barrett, Daffin, and
Carlan, $3,051.00 as the

paved streets were indicated.
In a discussion that followed,
Commissioner Branch told the
Board that he would not agree
to cutting any of the new
paved streets north of Ameri-
cus Avenue. Commissioner
Tankersley said this matter
should be tabled for study and
made a motion to that effect.
Motion seconded by Commis-
,sioner Kennedy. Vote: Aye -
Tankersley, Kennedy, Gort-
man, and Branch. Nay -
Chairman.
Commissioner Gortman told
the Board that the application
called for crossing a number
of dirt streets and there should
be no problem in cutting these
dirt streets. He moved to issue
a permit to cut all dirt streets,
seconded by Commissioner
Branch. Vote: Aye - Gortman,
Branch, Tankersley, and Ken-
nedy. Nay - Chairman.
The Administrative Assist-
ant told the Board that in an

Time Zone Change?


There have been several
reports during the past several
weeks which propose placifig
the entire state of Florida in the
Eastern time zone. Virtually all
of the First Congressional
District is in the Central time
zone. The only exception is the
eastern end. of Gulf County.
Thus, any attempt to redraw
the zone line would affect most
all of us.
The current boundaries
were established by federal law
almost twenty years ago. It is
only through an act of Con-
gress that a change of the sort
now being discussed is possi-
ble.
be But do we want this
change? The suggestion has
been made that, by switching
to Eastern time, more after-
noon and evening daylight
hours will exist. Certainly there
are some energy savings which
would result from this reform.
However, there would be
dangers as well. Children
would be forced to catch
school buses before sunlight.
There would be a loss of an
hour of morning sunlight,
which means sunrise would oc-
cur as late as 7:40 a.m.
There have been statements
issued which suggest that I sup-
port the proposed change in
zone borders. I do not favor
the change or the movement in
that direction. Too often, laws
are enacted before adequate
thought is given to the need for
change. On this subject, I ask,
is there adequate justification
for altering time zones? 1I do
not believe the lives of our
citizens will be improved by the
change and I oppose the at-
tempt to disrupt, in another
way, the lives of people in the
Panhandle. '
Veterans' Benefits Increase
There has been an increas-
ing awareness in Congress that
q, benefits to military personneL,
'. and veterans are slowly being'
eroded both by inflation and
through governmental action.
A very important bill to
thousands of disabled veterans
is indicative of this change.
The President recently signed
into law a bill which provides a
9.9% cost-of-living in-
crease,for recipients in the
veterans' compensation pro-
gram, retroactive to October
1st.
The extra amount which is
owed to recipients will come in
a special check during
December, and the regular in-
crease will be reflected in
January checks.
I am hopeful that this law
will mark the renewal of

Christmas Season Brings



Out the Bad Checks


Gulf County citizens should
be more careful than ever
during the holiday season
when accepting checks, State
Attorney Leo C. Jones warned
recently. "December almost
always is the heaviest bad
check month of the year",
Jones said.
The Legislature has made
prosecution of worthless
check charges easier, Jones
said. Now person who write
checks on an overdrawn ac-
count need be given only seven
days written notice before
prosecution 'may 'be,.ihstigat-
ed. This replaces.'the former
twenty day notice.
A service charge of $10.00,
or .five percent of the amount
of the worthless check, which-
ever is greater may be
collected from persons who
pass bad checks, Jones said.
The old law only allowed a
$5.00 minimum service
charge.
Jones said that checks bear-
ing a notice of "account
closed" may be processed
without written notice to the
maker of the check.
"Before prosecution can be-
gin the maker of the worthless
cheCk must be positively
identified," Jones stressed.
This identification, he said,
should include height, weight,
hair color, eye color, race, and
sex.
Many businesses stamp a
form on the reverse side of all
checks taken in which pro-
vides spaces for required
information, Jones pointed
out. He added that although
this is quite a bother, it pays
dividends.
Sample notification letters
may be obtained from the
State Attorney's office in the
courthouse here.

check complaints. Jones ex-
plained that a complaint is a
form by which the person
holding a worthless check
seeks prosecution of the indi-
vidual who passes the bad
check. Jones noted that- pas-
sing worthless checks is a
crime, and that his office has
no control over whether resti-
tution is ordered if a convic-
tion is obtained.
Jones explained that the law
does not permit prosecution of
persons passing worthless
"two-party". checks. An-, ex-
amplebf a "two-party" check-
is one where "A" presents a
check to "B". "B" in turn
received goods or money from
"C". In this case, Jones went
on, "C" cannot prosecute
"B" for passing the worthless
check.
Any worthless check in


excess of $100.00 for which
cash or merchandise was
obtained is a felony, and the
maker, of such a check is
subject to a fine of up to
$5,000.00 and imprisonment of
up to five years for each such
worthless check issued.
Fines of more than $50.00
and imprisonment of up to one
year in the county jail may be
imposed on conviction of
passing worthless checks of
less than $100.00.
