Horseshoe Crab May Save Lives


St. Joseph Bay Experiment to Test Possibilities


The lowly horseshoe crab, a blob of bone and
legs, has long been considered to be just another of
those useless animals which inhabit the ocean.
Experiments scheduled to begin here in St. Joseph
Bay in late April hope to prove this lowly creature
is a boon in disguise to mankind.
Florida State University, with Dr. Ann Rudloe
as project manager, has been commissioned by the
United States Food and Drug Administration,
working with the Center for Field Research of
Boston, Mass., and hopes to find that the blood of the
horseshoe crab will provide the means of easy
diagnosis for indotoxins which develop in man
e as the result of dead germs which build up the
poisonous toxins in rare cases.
Dr. Rudloe said her organization has contracted
with Raffield Fisheries of Port St. Joe to catch 5,000
of the animals for the experiment. "We hope to
collect an additional 5,000 crabs with our own


personnel to add to the experiment", Dr. Rudloe
said.
Raffield said his firm is now developing
equipment to collect the crabs without disturbing
anything else on the Bay bottom. "After we catch
them, we will put them in pens in the Simmons
Bayou area for use by the researchers", Raffield
said.
Dr. Rudloe said the purpose of their experiment
is to draw blood from the animals - up to 200 cc's
from mature specimen - and tag the animals
before releasing them back into the bay. "Our
purpose is to see if they will survive after having the
blood extracted", Dr. Rudloe said.
If the experiment is successful and the animals
don't survive, they have accomplished nothing,
since the horseshoe crab would soon be killed off if
they die after some of their blood is removed, Dr.
Rudloe said.


The field studies here will be carried on for a
period of about six weeks, beginning in April and
continuing through the first of June.
Dr. Rudloe, said thousands of people each year
are killed by the indotoxins and is now extremely
difficult to diagnose in time. "If our experiments
are successful, the diagnosis will be made
comparatively simple and quick, perhaps saving
many lives through these efforts".
Dr. Rudloe said Florida State University will be
conducting public participation in the project after
the crabs are released. "We are attaching tags to
the released crabs, each containing a dollar value.
We will pay those finding the released and tagged
crabs and notifying the University. This way, we
will know whether or not the crabs have survived,
which will verify whether or not our experiment is a
viable operation." The tags will contain values of
from $1.00 to $50.00 rewards to the finders.


County's Desire for "Junk"




Ordinance Isn't Dead Yet


New Version Being Drawn for Presentation


Last Tuesday night, the
County Commission refused to
introduce a planned ordinance-
which would give the Commis-
sion a tool to require residents
in the county to keep their
property presentable and free
from rodent-breeding trash.:
The ordinance is not dead;
however, as chairman Doug
Birmingham appointed Corm-


missioner Leo Kennedy, chief
antagonist against the propos-
ed ordinance to head up a
committee of volunteers to
Work up an ordinance plan
which would do the job and
still be acceptable to the
people who would be affected
by it.,
Kennedy told The Star Tues-
day his committee, which
consists of himself, Wallace


Tillery, Buck Rhames, George
Whiting, Sara Ann Wood,
Conrad Marien and Myrtle
Raffield, had already been
meeting and would meet at
least once more before the
next meeting of the Board,
which will be Tuesday mor-
ning, February 12. "I think we
will have something to present
to the Board at that time",
Kennedy said.


The first draft of the ordin-
ance which was presented to
the Board called for the
removal of all buildings which
were more than 50 percent
destroyed by fire, or whatever
means. In the first discussion
of the requirement, Kennedy
had stated, "There are people
living in such buildings in the
county. Are you going to
require them to tear down

The Port Authority voted
unanimously to issue revenue

their homes?"
The intent of the ordinance
was to make the requirement
on unoccupied homes, but the
language wasn't there. Before
the ordinance was presented
to the Board Tuesday of last
week, the word "unoccupied"
was inserted in the demolition
clause, but those attending the
public hearing were still leery
of the document.
Kennedy said his. meeting
has resulted in stressing unoc-
cupied buildings in the demoli-
tion clause and other minor
changes made which, he felt,
would make it more palatable
overall.
Kennedy said, "We didn't.
get too much done, because
one person tried to dominate
the meeting and we couldn't
get much work done on the
actual ordinance. We plan to
meet again and try to finish up
our work of writing an accept-
able ordinance draft to pre-
sent to the board."
At the meeting last week,
and in prior discussions to the
ill-fated ordinance, the Board
was unanimous in its opinion
that an ordinance of some kind
was needed to regulate junk
and debris piling up through-
out the county, causing health
and rodent problems. Both
Kennedy and Chairman Bir-
mingham were reluctant to
endorse the ordinance as
presented, feeling it was too
restrictive.
It still remains to be seen as
to whether the Board and the
public will accept the revised
version of Kennedy and his
committee as an acceptable
substitute.

Two Young Girls Crash


Into White City Bridge


Two young girls were involved in a single
car accident Saturday night, at the White City
bridge, according to Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Bill Godwin.
The accident happened about 11:05 p.m.,
on the approach to the bridge, where their
vehicle struck the foundation which supports
the bridge guard rail, tearing it from the
ground and demolishing the car.
Pamela Renee Williams, 17, of 104 Sixth
Street, Highland View, was taken to Munici-
pal Hospital for observation by the Port St.
Joe squad of the Gulf County Volunteer
Ambulance Service. Her passenger, Terri
Gilley, 1002 Woodward Avenue, was not

fast for road conditions at the time", Godwin
said.
Godwin estimated damages to the

THURSDAY, JAN. 31, 1980


You're Getting Old If You Remember These Activities


You're an old-timer if you ever:
- Turned off the lights when you left a
room.
- Saved stale bread for stuffing or bread
pudding.
- Darned the holes in your socks.
- Cut off the collar of a wornout shirt and
turned it over.
- Used cotton flannel sheets in the
winter.
- Had chicken for Sunday dinner.
- Buried your garbage in the backyard
(except for the cans and bottles).
- Ate hot oatmeal, cornmeal or Cream of
Wheat for breakfast.
- Thought of ice cream, candy, oranges
and peanuts as a special treat.
- Had one radio in the house.
- Had one car in the family (maybe).
- Were at least 21 before you had your
first car, over 30 before you ever had a new
. car, and over 40 before you bought a house.
- Took a bath once a week on Saturday
night.
. - - Ate potatoes twice a day.
- Were born at home.
- Ate at a restaurant only on anniversar-
z-ies or special occasions.
: -. -- Did your washing on Monday and hung
it on the line, and then ironed on Tuesday.


- Cleaned your own wool sweaters in
naptha or white gas.
- Used no more than three sheets of toilet
paper.
- Were nice to grandma because she
might give you a cookie, and once in a while
even a nickel for an ice cream cone
(double-dipper).
- Fed the dog table scraps but never dog
food.
- Always had at least one older person
living in your house (usually a widowed


grandmother, aunt or old maid cousin).
We'll wager nearly everyone over 60 will
say yes to nine out of 10 of the above
statements. A generation or two ago, that was
America.
Even then, few of us considered ourselves
poor, except during the Depression years.
Wealth is a relative thing. We'd all feel poor if
we lived across the street from henry Ford, or
wealthy if'we lived among the Haitians.
But in America, each generation expected
to (and did) live better than the last. -Each


worked fewer hours and owned more.
Has that ended?
With population soaring and energy
dwindling, are we entering a new age when
science and hard work will no longer
guarantee a better world? Will we be fighting
to just hold what we have?
It could well be. But should we worry?
Nearly all of us have so much more than
we need. It's not the energy and money
shortage that should concern us. It's the
shortage of plain old principles.


President Carter Follows the Lead of the People


In his State of the Union address the other
night, President Carter finished cutting the
props out from under Teddy Kennedy and
stole the thunder of the Republican candidates
all in one 45-minute speech.
The Republicans had adopted the increas-
ingly popular theme of an America which
commanded respect throughout the world;
even in Russia. The President now gives the
backing of his office to what the polls show
most Americans want. He is taking a tough
line after three years of trying to appease the
Russians and accepting their empty promises


as gospel. The Russians have proven they
can't be trusted by their actions, and now
America must prove it will not stand idly by
with its actions.
One of the last things we would like to see
happen is for this nation to go to war. We are
resting more easily now that the President has
stated the country will go to war to protect its
interests. There was no pussy-footing around
about it. The statement was made in very
plain language which all the world could
understand.
We believe a willingness to go to war if


need be, will keep us out of more wars than an
official position of maybe we will go to war to
protect our interests.
Even with all the events which have
happened in the last few weeks, we can't help
but have a lurking feeling in the back of our
mind that part of the Russian reason for
moving into Afghanistan was to insure the
re-election of President Carter.
If that was their purpose, and they
continue to threaten the oil-rich Middle East,
we feel they will get their wishes.


She's Proud of


Commission Action


.Dear Wesley:
: I am proud of our county
.commissioners and the fact
thatat they voted unanimously
:to pass a county ordinance
prohibiting the dumping or
=storage of nuclear wastes or
"other poisonous or hazardous
:substances in Gulf County.
: Sadly, Natural Resources
;Chairman, John Lewis, D-
'-Jacksdonville, has stated pub-
:;licly that the local ordinances
"do- "not worry him because
z-state legislation would take
:precedence over them.
That means that we who live
in North Florida have no voice
'at 11ll about what happens to
;ouf land. Of course South
,Florida is more than willing to
.hai'e its nuclear wastes and


hazardous materials shipped
up here for dumping.
Lewis went on to say that he
is willing to meet with county
commissions in efforts to quiet
fears that a disposal site
would endanger the environ-
ment and health of residents.
There is no man alive who
can make such assurances.
Last week an earthquake
released small amounts of
radioactive material into the
water of the nuclear labora-
tory in Livermore, California.
The laboratory had been sup-
posed "safe." It was a minor
earthquake, and they * were
able to contain the material on
the site. What if it had been
more severe earthquake?


Even proponents of nuclear
energy have told me that they
are against the type of storage
the state is planning.
If we the people in North


Florida do not let their leaders
know how they feel about this
matter, it will soon be too late.
Most sincerely,
Margaret Key Biggs

'increased rate said the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol today.
Preliminary figures show
:that there was one bicyclist

.total was 90.
Patrol leader, Colonel Eld-
-rige Beach said, "The year
.1969 had only 41 bike daths.
.Ten years later the total has

There are about four males
to every one female killed on

brackets of 5 to 9, 15 to 19 and
25 to 34 lead the other nine
brackets in riders being killed.
Beach said, "Proper in-
struction to beginning riders is
a most important part of
parents responsibilities after
giving their children a bike for
Christmas. Insisting on the


right of way when riding a
bicycle in traffic is almost like
committing suicide. In a situ-
ation where the car and bike
have a possible conflict, the
bike, being more manuver-
able should give way to the
larger, heavier car. That is
called common sense."

SALTY
SALLY


Only Way to Lick High Taxes Is to be Careful Who You Elect to Office


JERRY GATES argued with me
the other day about our stand for
leaving property values for taxing
purposes at 100 percent.
Jerry argued that values are now
- well below 100 percent and application
of the law would increase taxes
tremendously.
j argue that if the rate were
reduced to 50 percent, the same
situation would prevail and many of
those now paying nominal taxes would
pay nothing, thus reducing the tax
payers to a smaller number.
' If we're going to do anything along
this line for relief, I believe we should
leave the valuation rate as the law now
reads and cut the limits of taxation in
half.
The best solution would be to be
.more selective about who we elect to
:spend our potential tax money.
2 BEING MORE SELECTIVE about
-who we elect to spend our tax money
should be taken under consideration
seriously now. An election year is


coming up and the hopefuls are already
beginning to line up their forces to
make the run for public office.
Here in Gulf County, we will elect
three county commissioners, two
school board members and every





ETAOIIttij






officer in the courthouse with the
exception of the county Judge.
One of the things which will make
this year such a responsible one for the
voters is the fact that four of our county
officers are stepping down in retire-
ment. Only Sheriff Ken Murphy and


Superintendent of Schools Walter Wil-
der have said they definitely will run
again. The rest are toying with or
definitely committed themselves to
retire.
This means a double responsibility


for the voters this year, as most of these
officers never had much opposition in
the past. It is to be expected that their
replacements will be as firmly en-
trenched in their offices after the
election and we need to make sure we
get some good men.


OUR COUNTY OFFICERS handle
a lot of our tax money during the year,
providing constitutional services and
services we have all said we wanted. If
you want to take some steps toward
lowering your tax bill, or at least


stopping its incessant climb to the
stars, you have the weapon to do it -
your vote.
All of us would like to get along
without paying any taxes at all. It's no
comfort that we have some of the
lowest taxes in the state or nation right


here in Gulf County. It still hurts to pay
them. But we insist on the services our
tax money buys, so we must have it or
do away with the service. If you attend
many commission meetings on any
level, you will find there is a group of
people always ready to spend tax
money we don't have on projects they
want, but which others may not want.
Our commissioners have every oppor-
tunity to spend considerably more than
is now collected. All of the projects are
worthy but sometimes a bit self-
serving.

IT'S A RARE basketball game one
sees, when the score is close, that the
losing team doesn't try to ring the
basket from the other end of the court
just as the buzzer sounds.
I have always thought to myself,
"Now, why did he do that? He knew he
couldn't make it from that far away".
Last week, in Tallahassee, a
basketball player tried just that trick
against FSU and made the basket, and
beat FSU by one point.


The shit, from 89'3" away was good
as the buzzer sounded. It set a record.
Which just goes to show you, a
person should always keep trying. One
of these days one of these long shots will
pay off and he will win the game which
was doomed for another digit in the loss
column.

APALACHICOLA is pushing for a
new drawbridge across Apalachicola
Bay to replace the one now located at
the edge of Apalachicola. The City
Commission over there has informed
the Department of Transportation they
want a bascular type bridge rather than
a high rise.
Have we got a deal for them!
I suggest we help both communities
and save the DOT some money. When
the DOT builds us a new high rise
bridge at Highland View, they can take
the old bascular type bridge there and
move it to Apalachicola. Then every-
body would be happy.
A trade like that would help both of
us to get our new bridges sooner.

Wilkie Gilbert Wins Cup


In South Florida Sailing


By CRAIG DAVIS
Fort Lauderdale News
For those who think it takes stern
shouting and whip-cracking to get a
crew to sail a boat fast, consider
George "Wilkie" Gilbert and his ocean
racer Puff, aboard which seldom is
heard a frantic word.
(Wilkie is the son of Deda Gilbert
and the late Phonzo Gilbert of Port St.
Joe)
"We're a little laid back," said
Gilbert. "We sail a pretty casual boat.
I frown on hollering and screaming as
much as possible. I've found over the
years that it's better to say, 'This is
your job, we need it done' and let it go at
that. If you yell at someone, you just
break his concentration."
, * iGilbert and his crew have just,
received the Lipton Cup for winning the
big-boat class in Gulfstream Sailing
Club's annual South Florida Champion-
ship. It seems that smooth sailing
equals fast sailing on Puff, Gilbert's
white and green sloop.
Gilbert had skippered boats to two
GSC around-the-buoys race champion-
ships but the offshore title had eluded
him. He and his crew channeled most of
their effort offshore last year and
earned the Lipton Cup in Gilbert's first


Deuteronomy 27:9-10, 14,
15-B.
(V-9) Then Moses and the
priests, who are Levites, said
to all Israel, "Be silent, 0
Israel, and listen! You have
i now become the people of the
Lord your God. (V-10) Obey
the Lord your God and follow
his commands and decrees
that I give you today." (V-14)
The Levites shall recite to all
* the people of Israel in a loud
voice: (V-15-B) Then all the
people shall say, "Amen!"
Christians remember one
important thing, when we are
born again we become chil-
dren of the covenant adopted
into the family of Israel, God's
family (Eph., chapter 2).
In Deuteronomy we see a very
important Bible Truth that
has been overlooked or re-
placed by denominational doc-
trine. That Bible Truth is the
responsibility of ministers of
God to instruct God's people in
their Responsibility to God.
We have been very careful to
instruct new converts to
Christianity how to become
members in good standing to
the particular denomination
they are joining. But we have
not been careful to see that
they receive instruction as to
their responsibility to God.
Moses and the Levites,
God's ministers, were very
careful (examples for us 1
Corinthians 10:6) that God's
people would hear His com-
mands. The Levites (V-14)
would "recite His commands
in a loud voice." But they did
not just assume the people
would hear. The people were
required to acknowledge re-
ceipt of what their ministers
said by responding with
"Amen."
God was making a covenant
with His people but the peo-
ple's responsibility was to re-
ceive it and acknowledge re-
ceiving it.


full season at the helm of Puff. The
offshore series consists of four races
between SQuth Florida and the Baha-
mas and two shorter coastal races.
"Offshore racing is a whole differ-
ent ball of wax from around-the-buoys
racing on Sundays," Gilbert said.
"Most of it's overnight racing and
you're sort of at the mercy of the wind
at night halfway between here and the,
Bahamas. What's happening here and
what's happening there (Bahamas) is
not normally what's happening in the
middle. It takes a lot of thinking way
ahead and, heck, it takes a lot of luck,
too."
To take the Lipton Cup, the 30-foot
cutsom built Puff had to weather a
challenge from Black Majic, a light
42-footer sailed by Don Fowler of Fort
Lauderdale that Gilbert considers one
of the top boats in the country in light
wind. He said Puff is a steady
all-weather boat with no blatant
strengths or weaknesses.
Through a mix of light and heavy
wind conditions, the two boats traded
victories until Puff took charge on the
windy Gun Cay race. With the Fort
Lauderdale to Lucaya Race remaining,
Puff needed only a second place finish
to take the title.


Today we as Christians are
to receive GOD'S insturctions.
We are to acknowledge receiv-
ing and understanding them.
Then we are to live by them.
We can do it because of Jesus.
He provides the way.
If our way isn't the Jesus
way, then it is no way at all.
Let's examine what the Bible
says and weigh it against our
way.


Puff did finish second to Black
Majic in the series finale in typical laid
back style. Poking along in a gentle
breeze a few hours from Lucaya,
someone noticed a school of dolphin in
the shadow of Puff's bow. While a
couple of crewmen kept the boat
moving, the rest grabbed fishing poles
and in about 10 minutes had enough
dolphin for 55 -pounds of fillets.
"We don't do this for a living, we do
it for fun and relaxation," Gilbert
explained. "If you're too hard-nosed
and push too hard, it takes the fun out of
it."
The crew of Puff will never be
accused of missing out on any fun.

Friday night, the Sharks
travelled to Blountstown and
took the measure of the
Tigers, winning 53-45.
Things looked dismal at
half-time, with the Sharks
trailing 24-16, after only six
points scored in the second
period. The second half was
different; things looked dis-
mal for the Tigers, as the
Sharks zone defense held the
Tigers to only 21 points in the
second half, while Shark


sharp-shooters were pouring
in 37 points to take the lead
and end the game with their
twelfth win of the season.
Castledara Gant had the hot
hand for the Sharks, scoring 19
points to lead his team in
scoring. Ricky Larry was
close behind with 18 points and

The Godby Cougars of Tal-

ning streak at seven Monday
night, when the Cougars tast-
ed Shark meat in a 65-59 defeat
of the home team.
Mike London was the prime
reason for the Cougars' win
over the streaking Sharks,
netting 24 points against what
is normally a stout Shark
defense.
The Sharks were right in the
thick of things for three
quarters of the game and even
had a small 33-31 lead at
half-time, before they had a
cold spell in the third period,
scoring only eight points to 18
for Godby.
That cold period cost the
Sharks the game.
Jumping John Pittman had
the hot hand for the Sharks

the board. Ricky Larry was

Rick Lamberson



to Run Marathon


When the starting gun fires
at eight o'clock Saturday
morning, a member of the
local St. Joseph Bay Road
Runners Club, Rick Lamber-
son, will begin a run that he
has been in training for over
the past five months, the
marathon. He will run in the
Phidippides Capital C Mara-
thon, a distance that covers 26
miles, 385 yards.
The location of the course is
in Killearn Gardens in
Tallahassee. The hills of Tal-
lahassee add another dimen-
sion of challenge to Rick. This
is his first assault in competit-
ion on a run. of this distance.
The completion of a mara-
thon is usually somewhere in
the back of every runner's
mind. A very small percent-
age ever realize the accomp-
lishment of that dream, main-
ly because it taken a tremend-
ous amount of dedication to
training and self discipline.
Rick has conquered those
demands and unless an injury
should occur during the run,
Rick will have fulfilled his
dream and completed his first


marathon.
The members of St. Joseph
Bay Road Runners wish Rick
the best of luck and will be
pulling for him all the way.

Tips On Buying



Good Plants


Many Florida gardeners
will be buying plants during
the next few months as they
start their spring gardening.
So let's try to answer their
common question? What do I
look for when buying a plant?
Plants, like all goods and
services, come in many sizes,
shapes and qualities. It is just
as important to evaluate a
plant before purchase as it is
to carefully inspect a garment
or home appliance.
A cheap plant, in most
instances, is exactly what the
name implies. You may pay
very little but you will proba-
bly get little in return. Nurser-
ies will periodically have
sales where they offer top
quality at a minimum price.
But, this is an exception to the
rule, not a common occur-
rence. In most cases the best
plants will be the most expen-
sive. But how do you deter-
mine best?
First of all, patronize a
reputable nurseryman who
has a neat and presentable
place. A sloppy nursery often
indicates poorly maintained
plants.
Secondly, inspect each plant
individually. Don't fall for the
"hard" where you are not
allowed to see all your plants.
If the plants are tagged
according to grades and stan-
ards as established by the
Florida Division of Plant
Industry, your selection is
much easier. A plant graded
as a Florida Fancy is an
exceptionally healthy and vig-
orous plant which is very well
shaped, heavily branched, and
densely foliated. A Florida
No. 1 grade is a healthy
vigorous plant which is well
shaped, well branched, and
well foliated.
The Florida No. 2 is healthy,
vigorous, fairly well shaped,
with fair branching and fair
foliage. Any plant not meeting
the above standards is a
Florida No. 3. This last grade
is for culls. Lower the grade at
the beginning, the less chance
the plant has of being a good
one at maturity.
If the plants are not tagged
as to grade, then you must
inspect them closely. Here are
some guidelines along a nega-
tive approach. Downgrade
any plant having the follow-
ing characteristics: Lack of
health and vigor or excessive

succulence. An unhealthy
plant is apparent in most
cases. Look for weak, poorly
formed, scarred, cracked or
peeling trunks or branches.
Poorly distributed branches
usually lead to "leggy" plants
and should be avoided. A
compact plant is usually more
desirable. Avoid plants having
leaves of improper shape, size
or color. Excessive yellowing
of leaves is an indication of a
problem. Examine leaves for
insect, disease and mechani-
cal damage.
For container grown plants,
make sure the root system is
well established but not root-
bound or growing out of the
containers. Roots should be
firmly incorporated through-
out the soil, but not protruding
outside or penetrating into the
ground.
Most container plants within
a species are priced accord-
ing to size. Plants growing in
two gallon containers are
generally larger and more
expensive than those in one
gallon containers. However,
make your selection on plant
size rather than container
size. Frequently, plants grow-
ing in larger containers are
the same size or only a little
larger than those in smaller
pots.
Also make sure the plant is
adapted to your area. Will the
plant survive the low or high
temperatures in your area?.
Will it flower and-or fruit
properly? Is it tolerant to salt
spray, if you live in such an
area? And, is it labelled
properly as to species and
variety? ,
If you can follow most of
these suggestions on how to
select a good plant, you will.
obtain quality and save
money.

Medicare


Deduct


Goes Up

The Medicare hospital in-
surance deductible--the a-
mount a person with Medicare
is responsible for in a benefit
period-increases to $180 for
benefit periods starting in
1980, David Robinson, Social
Security Representative for
Gulf County, said recently.
The 1979 deductible was $160.
Under the law, the deduc-
tible must be increased to
reflect rising costs of health
care.
A benefit period-the mea-
sure of use of services under
Medicare-starts the first time
a person enters a hospital
after hospital insurance be-
gins. A new benefit period
begins when the person has
been out of a hospital or other
facility primarily providing
skilled nursing or rehabilita-
tion services for 60 days in a
row.
There is no limit on the
number of benefit periods a
person may have.
Also increased are certain
per day amounts the person is
responsible for under hospital
care, hospital insurance pays
for all covered services except
for $45 a day in 1980. The 1979
figure was $40 a day.
For each of 60 reserve days
of hospital inpatient care,
hospital insurance pays all
covered services except for
$90 a day. The 1979 figure was
$80.
For the 21st through the 80th
day of care in a skilled nursing
facility, hospital insurance
pays for all covered services
except for $22.50 in 1980. The
1979 figure was $20.
Other than the inpatient
deductible, there is no charge
for covered services for the
first 60 days of inpatient
hospital care and for the first
20 days of skilled nursing care
in each benefit period.
In addition, Robinson said,
there is no change in the
Medicare medical insurance
$60 annual deductible for 1980.
More information about
Medicare, including covered
services and patient costs can
be obtained at the Panama
City Soical Security Office,
located at 30 West Govern-
ment Street. The telephone
number is 769-4871.


A Finger In the Dike


Everyone is familiar with the
story of the little Dutch Boy who
stuck his finger in a hole in the dike
and saved his country from flooding.
It is supposed to be true and it
makes a great story.
More recently I have heard that
the little boy hooked a hose to the
dike and now operates a car wash.
This news is terribly disconcert-
ing to all of us who are of the same
mental disposition-who figuratively
keep our finger in the dike all the
time.
For forty years I have been a
member of the group of dike-holders,
who anxiously listen to all the news
programs; have read all the papers,
news magazines and books that keep
us in touch with the tottering world.
Even our friends are not spared. Our
first words to them are: "Well,
whatta ya know?"
Anxiety is not exactly the word
for it. Quite a bit of the time we feel
that we have things pretty well under
control. Even those parts of the
world that appear to be going to hell
in a handbasket seem to be following
an expected pattern, and there is no
alarm or lack of expectation. We
already told you so.
That is not the point. The point is
that events might go un-noted for two
or three days-that there might be


no one paying attention.
The anti-dike-holder crowd was
mentioned fleetingly by Abraham
Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address,
when he said they "will little note
nor long remember." It is this crowd
that asks such foolish questions as:
"What can YOU do about it, any-
way?
Well, brother, let me tell you: If
it were not for those who watch
inflation ,as it inflates, who express
ourselves on street corners and who
bemoan low public participation,
where would we be? L. ask you,
where would we be?
. You ask what can we do? Just
who do you think all those people are
who view with alarm and write their
congressman?
As one dike-holder, I'll tell you,
it's almost a full-time job, especially
since our side seems to be losing
membership. I detect a new detach-
ment among people. They no longer
seem to give a darn about what's
happening. They just want to know
who to cuss.
I met a fellow the other day who
was blaming Roosevelt for current
events. I asked him how he justified
blaming a man who had been dead lo
these 35 years. His answer was: "I
don't know nothering about all that,


but my daddy cussed Roosevelt, and
what was good enough for him is
good enough for me." Which, of
course, explains it.
More recently, we have been
encouraged somewhat by an increase
of those who sign petitions and call
themselves "concerned citizens". Re-
gardless of what they may be mo-
mentarily concerned about, we dike-
holders welcome all the help we can
get. We do wonder, however, where
in heck they have been all this time.
A true dike-holder works at it.
When he returns from a trip out of
town, he immediately rushes to his
best source and says: "Tell me the
bad first" or"What burned down
while I was gone?" or "Have there
been any messages (of a dire nature,
of course)."
News from across the country of
the California earthquake brings a
wringing of the hands and a moaning
and groaning - "I knew I should
have stayed at home."
I am not saying that it had
anything to do with it, but that
satellite fell. only when I had to be
away from television for a few hours.
Dike-holders of the world, unite.
Keep that finger ready for whatever.

WCFD Gets

Unwanted


Assistance

The White City Fire Depart-
ment met last Monday to
discuss the problem of people
interfering with the work of
the department at fires.
Like fire departments
everywhere, the White City
unit has a problem of well-
meaning people who want to
help them at a fire, but don't
know what to do. Consequent-
ly, in trying to help, they get in
the way of those who know
what to do.
The department has enlisted
the aid of Sheriff Ken Murphy
to help the department in
trying to solve the problem.
White City has 16 active
members on the department,
headed by president Wallace
Bishop, fire chief F. Hardy,
assistant chief H. Hardy and
other dedicated people. The
members recently completed
an 18 hour -course on fire
fighting.
The Department calls on
those interested in helping at
fires to join the department
and attend their meetings
each Monday night at 7:00
p.m.




About 14,000 martyrs are
listed in the records of
the Roman Catholic Church.


The site is open to people of
the Port St. Joe area to come
by and look at the facilities
and meet the Schlickmans.

Here's a downhome recipe hearty enough for a main meal.
Good old-fashioned pinto beans simmered with ham hocks and
spiced with diced green chilies. For special eye-appeal and
crunchy texture, we add dark California ripe olive slices.
It freezes well, so pack some away for those unexpected
guests. Serve "Cowboy Beans" for lunch or for a hearty supper
with hot cornbread and honey butter. The folks will love it!

d Planting A Dogwood Tree? Follow Amn.Dykes
Has Legal


. These Steps to Plant It Right Training


Before planting, you must
take care in selecting a
� suitable site for your new tree.
You should, as closely as
possible, duplicate the forest's
natural environmental condi-
tions of soils, moisture, and
sunlight in which your tree
would have normally thrived.
Flowering Dogwood (Cor-
nus florida) grows best on
well-drained soils and readily
adapts to a wide variety of
sites in north Florida.
In the forest the Flowering
Dogwood is a shade-desiring
tree; but with some care, this
tree can be planted as a
specimen tree in full sunlight.
Flowering Dogwood quickly
becomes a fully formed tree;


under good conditions, it can
grow to 40 feet tall. Most
Flowering Dogwoods have
short trunks with a large,
brushy crown, formed by
several wide-spreading limbs
six to ten feet above ground.
To plant your new tree, dig a
hole somewhat larger than the
root system, and separate the
humus layer of topsoil from
the yellow-looking soil under-
neath. After the hole has been
shaped, mix the topsoil that
has been separated with
sphagnum moss (about half
moss and half topsoil) and
place a layer about the same
depth as it was originally, with
the roots spread out, as they
were before the tree was


lifted. While holding the tree
upright, lightly pack the ze-
mainder of the topsoil and the
humus soil mixture on the top
and to the sides of the tree
roots.'
Form a saucer shape a-
round the tree, and fill the
saucer at least twice with
water. Fill any cavities made
by the water with soil, and
place a three or four-inch
layer of mulch around the
base of the tree. Decomposed
leaves from broadleaf trees
are best when available. If
not, fallen leaves from any
broadleaf tree are suitable.
Use pine straw only if no
other organic material is
available.


After the tree has been
established, water it every
three days to one week,
depending upon the texture of
the soil and the amount and
frequency of rainfall. Trees
planted in sandy soil require
more frequent watering than
those planted in loamy soils.
You should not fertilize a
newly set seedling until after
one month has lapsed. Later,
if your tree lacks vigor and
appears weak, it may be
fertilized ONCE a year.
Healthy trees may be ferti-
lized once every two years.

were never kept were never
made." E. W. Howe

You Can Make More and



Still Draw Social Security


Increases in average earn-
ings covered by social securi-
ty the past year have trigger-
ed an increase in the retire-
ment test annual exempt
amount for people receiving
social security benefits, Dave
Robinson, Social Security
Field Representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
The retirement test annual
exempt amount is the amount
of earnings a person can have
and still receive all benefits
*, for the year. - .
For people under 65, the 1980
annual amount is $5,000. The
1979 amount was $3,480.
For people 65 or over the
1980 annual exempt amount is


$5,000. The 1979 amount was
$4,500.
A person whose 1980 earn-
ings go over the annual
exempt amount generally has
$1 in benefits withheld for
each $2 of earnings above the
exempt amount.
Another figure increased is
the amount of annual earnings
required to receive social
security credits. A person
needs credit for a certain
amount of Work. to be. eligible
for social security benefits.
This credit is measured in
"quarters of coverage". A
person can receive up to four
"quarters of coverage" in a


year.
In 1980, a person receives
credit for one "quarter of
coverage" for each $290 of
annual earnings, up to a
maximum of four if annual
earnings are $1,160 or more.
The 1979 measure was $260.
More information about so-
cial security credits and about
the retirement test can be
obtained at the Panama City
social -security office. Free
leaflets are available that give
more detail about both of
these subjects. The office is
located at 30 West Govern-
ment Street, and the telephone
number is 769-4871.

RICE AND HAM TO THE RESCUE


Rice is the perfect partner for this low-calorie Polynesian-
style dish of ham and fruits in a sweet and sour sauce.
Low-calorie nutritious meals that merit high praise
may seem impossible but are not when you use carefully
selected ingredients in exciting new ways.
Lean ham, for example, provides high quality protein,
B vitamins and iron. A perfect partner is convenient,
low-cost rice which contains no cholesterol, only a trace
of fat, and is low in calories. Canned fruit cocktail is
among the canned foods found in most kitchens. The
three join naturally'in 'food values and in taste in Spicy
Ham with Fruit. At only 290 calories per serving, it's a
winning meal combination.
Happily rice is really a convenience food. It can be
stored without refrigeration and is ready to cook straight
from the package. Whether you prefer regular, parboiled,
pre-cooked or brown rice it is always available, inexpen-
sive, easy to cook, and appropriate to use as a bed for the
spicy, flavorful morsels of ham with its delectable sauce.
SPICY HAM WITH FRUIT
1 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 can (16 ounces) fruit cocktail
(drain; reserve syrup)
1 cup chicken broth
1 large green pepper, cut in 1-inch squares
2 cups cubed cooked ham
3/4 teaspoon celery seed
Salt and pepper to taste
3 cups hot, cooked rice
Saute onions in butter until tender but not brown.
Blend cornstarch, sugar, mustard, fruit syrup, and broth.
Stir into onions. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick
and clear. Add green pepper, ham, celery seed, and fruit
cocktail. Continue cooking until meat is thoroughly
heated. Season to taste. Serve over beds of fluffy rice.
Makes 6 servings.
Each serving provides: 290 calories

Energy
Not to belabor a subject
that is presently on all our
minds,'but I was intrigued by a
recent advertisement published
by a petrochemical company in
which everyday items produced
by them from energy were
listed.
The list ran on for literally
hundreds of items and included
many things we may not im-
mediately think are derived
from this source. For example:
- permanent press clothes
- heart valves
- hair spray
- telephones
- overcoats
- antifreeze
- shower doors
- syringes
- magsara
- erasers
- photographs
- fan belts
- etcetera...
As I have stated, the list can
run on for pages but the point
is clear. We are dependent on
oil and petrochemical products
for more than just driving and
heating/cooling. No matter
where you are as you read this,
look around and consider how
deeply energy-related products
permeate the life around you.
It will be very revealing!
Seabed Mining
The Senate recently passed
a bill for United States com-
panies to mine minerals on the
deep-ocean floor. The bill was
passed by voice vote and will
now go to the House for con-
sideration. The Carter Ad-
ministration would prefer that
the House didn't act on this
matter just yet. The Ad-
ministration would prefer that
the House wait until the end of
the next session of the United
Nations' Law of the Sea Con-
ference scheduled for next
April.
United Nations members
for years have been trying to
draft a treaty regarding ter-
-ritorial claims, rights of
passage through straits, scien-
tific ocean experiments, and
who will be allowed to mine
nodules of manganese, nickel,
and copper on the Pacific
Ocean bottom. The mining
rights are the toughest issue
because there are many
underdeveloped countries with
land-based nickel mines that
want strict international con-
trols on the deep sea mining for
their protection.
The Administration has
been urging Congress to pass
legislation setting up an interim
system allowing U.S. com-
panies and their consortium
partners to go ahead with min-
ing while the treaty is being


worked out. A bill for this pur-
pose was passed by the House
in 1978 but failed to clear the
Senate.
The bill passed by the
Senate this time is similar to
the old House version. It
would allow U.S. companies to
apply to the Commerce
Department for a license to ex-
plore nodule sites in the
Pacific. Companies which
meet environmental protection
rules could get a permit for
mining.
According to the Wall
Street Journal, first drafts of
the Law of the Sea treaty an-
ticipate profits from the min-
ing. This would be set aside,'
whether from private or inter-
national companies, for
distribution to all nations. The
Senate bill requires consor-
tiums with U.S. members to
deposit in a Treasury trust
fund .75% of the gross income
from mineral sales.
Several House and Senate
members are dissatisfied with
the current draft and with the
attempts of Elliot Richardson,
U.S. Ambassador to the Law
of the Sea Conference, to de- -
fend it.
The Senate bill warns Mr.: =
Richardson against agreeing to
any future treaty that would
force licensed U.S. miners to
stop their extraction opera-
tions. It is expected that a.
similar clause will be in the
House bill. Mr. Richardson
feels this means the Senate.
would refuse to ratify any trea--
ty under total control of the
U.N. authority.
Since these minerals are..
vital to the continuity of our
industry, both now and in the
future, it is imperative that the :
legislation provide for con-
tinuous mining. Furthermore,
the treaty must not force us to
cease operations and allow -.
other nations to maintain
theirs. Such a provision would'
leave us dangerously
vulnerable.
Warm Cranberry Punch
The recipe which Nancy
selected for this week is by
Mrs. John C. Brophy, wife of
a former Representative from
V'sconsin.

I stick cinnamon
V2 cup brown sugar
V4 teaspoon salt
Combine cider and cranberry
juice in automatic percolator.
Place spices, brown sugar and
salt in percolator basket. Allow
to go through percolator cycle.
Serve warm. Makes 8 servings.


Since walking is definitely the cheapest form of trans-
portation, these truly are times that try men's soles.
