You Can't Dump




Toxic Waste In Gulf


Regulations Make It Impossible

Gulf County has, for all
practical purposes, said there
will be no dumping of nuclear
material or wastes or toxic
chemicals in the county. The
substances could be dumped
in the county if all the
stipulated criteria is met, but
it is impossible to meet the
criteria in Gulf County.
The County Commission
was asked a month ago to
adopt such an ordinance, and
a few days later, other coun-
ties all around began to adopt
ordinances forbidding the ac-
tions.
Board attorney William J.
Rish told the Board, "Let me
study this thing and come up
with an ordinance which will
stand up."


Tuesday night, Rish had his
ordinance, stating, "I am
pretty sure this ordinance will
be legal and I know some of
those drawn up in haste by
other counties are not. We
were in no hurry. Nobody is
going to come in tomorrow
and dump these wastes on
us."
Rish presented his ordin-
ance to the Board and receiv-
ed unanimous approval. The
ordinance will be considered
for final adoption on March 25
after the usual procedure by
new ordinances have been
taken care of.
Rish's proposal, approved
by the Board, would limit
dumping any of the noxious
wastes in areas less than one


Law Makes



Booze Bust

In Downtown Wewa


Gulf County Sheriff's De-
partment deputies and Wewa-
wahitchka police arrested two
men near downtown Wewa-
hitchka Tuesday, night, and
diWharged .them. with unlawful
spoesssion of alcoholic bever-
age.
According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, the two men were
arrested by Deputy James
Bagby, Deputy Sgt. Marty
Martin and Chief Glass of
Wewahitchka. During a rou-
tine search, it was found the
two men had illegal alcoholic
beverage in their possession.
The beverage was a "home
brew" kind of mixture.
Through further investiga-
tion, it was found the beverage
was being manufactured at
the residence of Thomas Ar-
thur Davie. A search warrant
was issued by Gulf County


Judge David Taunton and a
search was made of the
residence by Chief Glass, Lt.
Jack Davila, Sgt. Martin,
Deputy Bagby, Investigator
,Jip Buchanan and !Bu&.Bich-
ler of the Florida Marine
Patrol.
The search revealed two 15
gallon vats filled with the
illegal beverage, in the pro-
cess of distilling and 15 cases
of bottles filled with the illegal
substance. Value of the bever-
age was estimated at $1,000.

Davie was placed under
arrest and taken to the Gulf
County jail. He was charged
with unlawful possession of
alcoholic beverage, unlawful
possession of containers for
the purpose of containing the
illegal beverage and seizure
and forfeiture.


Man Shot In


Car Vandalism


Bill McFarland of 507 Madi-
son Street was wounded by a
gunshot early Friday mor-
ping in what was apparently a
thoughtless act by vandals.
The shooting occurred on
iqighway 98, about two miles
West of the Dixie Belle curve,
at 1:00 a.m., Friday.
According to Lt. Jack Davil-
la of the Gulf County Sheriff's
office, McFarland was on the
way home .from Panama City
with his family, when his car
broke down. He parked beside
the road and sent his family on
to town by a person who
stopped to give aid, instruct-
ing his son to return with their
pick-up truck to tow the car
the remainder of the way
home. McFarland elected to
wait with his disabled car until
his son returned.
While McFarland was wait-
ing, seated inside his car, a
dark colored pick-up truck
came up the highway, stopped
suddenly beside his vehicle


and the occupants of the truck
began to shoot at his car with a
22 caliber firearm. The truck's
occupants shot out the win-
dows of his car, his tires and
generally peppered the car
good with bullets.
One of the bullets struck
McFarland in the side.
Only minutes before the
incident, Lt. Davilla, on rou-
tine patrol, saw McFarland's
car and stopped to ask if he
could give aid. McFarland
informed Davilla his son was
returning with help, so Davilla
moved on.
McFarland managed to get
out of the car after the truck
had left and flagged down
John Anthony Wood, who
happened to be passing by,
asking for help. Wood drove
McFarland to the Municipal
Hospital where he was treat-
ed.
Lt. Davilla says the shooting
is still under investigation.


Ground Broken for Wewa Bank


Ground was broken Tuesday mor-
ning for construction of the new
Wewahitchka State Bank building here
in Port St. Joe.
Officers and directors of the bank
gathered at the bank property on the
corner of Woodward Avenue and Fifth
Street at 11:00 Tuesday morning, to
witness the digging of the first shovel of
earth at the construction site by Mrs.
Zola Maddox, a long-time resident of
Port St. Joe and a long-time customer
of the bank.


Overstreet

Bridge Being

Closed forRepair
The Department of Trans-
portation has announced the
floating bridge across the I
Intracoastal Canal at Over-
street will be out of commis-
sion to vehicular traffic for
two weeks, beginning Tues-
day, March 4. The draw span
will be taken out of the water
for repairs.
The DOT has stated it will
furnish transportation across
the canal and to and from the
polls on election day, which
will fall within this time
period.


Griffin Construction of Blountstown
will begin construction of the new
building in just a few days.
According to Charles Arthur Gas-
kin, architect for the new building, it
will be of brick veneer construction
following a contemporary colonial
motif. The building will contain some
3,000 square feet as well as provide
space for three drive-in banking
stations.
Gaskin said, "The arrangement of


the new building on the property will
provide for plenty of parking space.
The new branch bank has been
operating in a temporary building since
late last year.

mile from any body of water
or stream; one mile from any
residence or half mile from a
commercial or industrial
structure; and on any site
where the water table is less
than 10 feet below the surface
for at least .a mile in each
direction and with an EPA and
DER certification.
Which all means, there
won't be any dumping of
nuclear wastes or toxic chem-
icals in Gulf County, since
there is no place in the county
which would fit this criteria.
Rish indicated the county
couldn't get by with merely a
blanket prohibition of dump-
ing the wastes here. "You
ought to have a good reason
and give some qualifications
for such dumping or burying."
PAVING
The Commission was noti-
fied Tuesday night by the
Department of Transportation
that their bond issue to finance
a paving program in the
county had been sold and the
money deposited in the bank
for the county's use.
County Administrative As-
sistant Tommy Pitts told the
Board they had $2,260,000
available for their paving
plans.
Previously it was thought
there would not be enough
money in the bond plan to


include a resurfacing of Indus-
trial Road in the program.
Pittp advised the Board Tues-
day that since the amount of
money available has been
made known, and taking into
consideration cost increases,
engineering, etc., the county
would be able to pave
through project number 19 on
their list of some 28 paving
projects. The Industrial Road
is included in the top 19
projects.
The Board has arranged the
priorities at the top of their list
to give a fair distribution of
the available funds to all
sections of the county, taking
care of the most needed
projects in each area.
Work is expected to begin on
the actual paving in late
March or early April.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission:
-Instructed attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish to enter suit
against General Motors and
the ambulance manufacturer
for damages on the defective
Wewahitchka ambulance if he
has received no promise of
satisfaction by March 1.
-Accepted an offer of a
used trailer from C. R. Smith,
Jr., for $7,000, provided the
piece of equipment meets the
criteria of the Commission


Wewa Man Shot to Death


A Wewahitchka man, Cory Nelson, age
21, was fatally shot to death early
Saturday morning, after an argument with
Ralph Warren Jamerson, age 21, also of
Wewahitchka.
Jamerson was arraigned before County
Judge David Taunton Saturday afternoon,
and was charged with manslaughter in the
incident. Jamerson is free on $1,000 bond.
According to information released by
Sheriff Ken Murphy and Wewahitchka
Police Chief Jonathan Glass, the shooting
occurred from an incident in which
Jamerson thought Nelson was harrassing


his wife.
Jamison allegedly went home, got his
shotgun and went in search of Nelson. The
two met near the West Arm Bridge, north
of Wewahitchka, got out of their vehicles
and a struggle ensued. During the
struggle, the gun discharged, striking
Nelson in the chest from close range,
killing him instantly.
Jamerson was picked up by Chief Glass
and transferred to the Gulf County jail.
Both Murphy and Glass report the
incident is still under investigation.


Gulf County Volunteer Ambulance Service personnel tend to the wounded


immediately following a one-car accident Tuesday afternoon on Highway 71.


Five Injured In Auto Accident Sunday


Five people were hurt, two seriously, in this
accident which happened about 12:30 Sunday
afternoon on Highway 71, just north of Port St.
Joe.
According to Florida Highway Patrol Troo-
per, Bill Godwin, the six people in the car were
returning from Tallahassee, when the vehicle ran
off the west shoulder of the highway, travelled 168
feet and came back on the highway. The driver,


Mary Bell Sims, overcompensated, according to
Godwin, causing the car to skid sideways, coss the
east shoulder of the road and strike a pine tree
with the front of the car.
Only one person in the car, Cheryl Pryor, age
eight, was uninjured by the impact.
Port St. Joe squad of the Gulf County
Volunteer Ambulance Service took the-driver,


Mary Sims, and five passengers, Alasha Pryor,
age seven; Bea Riley, age 13; Susan Chambers,
age 11 and Tomieka Farmer, 10 to the Municipal
Hospital.
Bea Riley and Tomieka Farmer were later
transferred to Pensacola by life flight helicopter
ambulance for treatment of their injuries.
Trooper Godwin charged the driver with
failure to have her vehicle under control.


Pregnancy Said



Not An Emergency

The Gulf County Commission approved action taken
this week by the Port St. Joe Volunteer Ambulance Squad
in action the squad wishes to take. The action was outlined
to the Commission in a letter to the Board from local
squad director, Catherine Ramsey.
The letter stated the squad would no longer consider
pregnancy an emergency and would not transport
expectant ladies to a hospital if they had plenty of time to
get to the hospital by private transportation.
The letter stipulated that true emergencies caused by
pregnancy.would all be taken to the nearest hospital and
would not be transported to Panama City.
The letter stated the service personnel felt most
women have ample time to get to a medical facility by
private transportation.
The squad was taking the action because a baby was
born in the ambulance recently while en route to Panama
City. "While we can handle this situation in an
emergency, we are not trained to handle complications",
the letter stated. "For this reason, all pregnant women
picked up by the ambulance will be taken to the local
hospital, regardless of who is attending the patient."
The Board unanimously approved of the action by the
ambulance squad, remarking that in many instances,
people are abusing the ambulance service with calls
which are not truly emergencies.












THE STAR


PAGE TWO THURSDAY, FEB. 28, 1980


We Passed Up An Opportunity to Register Protest


We turned down an opportunity to sign one
of the petitions being circulated by the state's
Property Appraisers the other day, which
would call for a constitutional amendment to
be placed on the November ballot limiting
property appraisal for taxing purposes to 65
percent.
Right off, let us tell you that we are not
just bubbling over with enthusiasm for paying
taxes. If we could get by without this dubious
privilege, we would most surely would.
The truth is, we cannot get by without it if
we expect to have government services.
Services are costly but we still demand them.
As a matter of fact, most of us demand more
than we can ever afford.
We will continue to resist the urge to sign
the petitions because we do not believe they
are in our best interests.
100 PERCENT NOT MANDATED
In the first place, there is no place in the
Constitution or on the state statute books
which says county appraisers must now
appraise property at 100 percent for taxing
purposes. There is a law which ,calls 5 for just
value of property, but none which calls for 100
percent value. Even if the law did call for 100
= percent value, there are variables allowed by


the same law which could allow the appraiser
to value property at from 65 to 80 percent of
"just value". If we were to construe just value
as 100 percent value, then 65 percent value is
already allowable.
In Gulf County, the state says we are now
at 72 percent of "just value" and the state is
now interpreting just value as 100 percent of
market value.
But, disregarding that argument, we will
not sign the petition because we feel the just
value clause, which has placed virtually every
inhabitable home in the county on the tax rolls
has been largely responsible for improvement
of our various government agencies in the
county.
IMPROVED GOVERNMENT
Several years ago, when the great
majority of the homes in Gulf County were
wholly exempt under the state's homestead
exemption law, the various governments in
Gulf County were in a pitiful state. Let us all
understand that most every person who has
served government in our county over the past
years have been good men. The fact remains
that some of them had no business at all being
in charge of our government agencies. We
believe the fact that most every property
owner in the county became more concerned


For Best Return On Your Money


over whom he elected after he started paying
property taxes was the turning point in
.improving our county government.
Secondly, if you feel such a prohibition
would cut your tax outlay, you have another
think coming. If our government agencies
give us the services we demand, they will need
the money to pay for them with. You WILL
pay the taxes necessary to finance them, in
some manner. Thinking a reduction in
assessment limits would cut your taxes is like


wishing you were a millionaire and trying to
get there solely by wishing.
Local taxing on a reasonable basis will
maintain local control over our various
governments. We believe we know more about
our needs and how much should be spent on
them than the state does.
We'll probably lose this one too, but we
will hold out to the end in our belief, simply
because we feel local control over our destiny
is the best way to go.


Still Talking About Tax Hike


Last week we had a few words to say
about the $177 million surplus in the state
treasury.
We'd like to add to that a bit and ask
why this surplus hasn't resulted in a tax
reduction if the state doesn't need this
money? Instead, we are reading of possible
tax increases. Primarily, proposals are
being made to increase the gasoline tax by
four cents per gallon, or levy of a sales tax
on gasoline purchases.
The way we see it, this situation is
another reason to refuse to sign the
property appraisal limitation petition. If
this surplus situation existed on a local


level, the people would demand and get a
reduction in taxes. On a state level, we have
less clout unless we can put forth some
super-human effort to unite in our demands.
Locally, it merely takes a sizeable
delegation at a local board meeting, and the
tax is cut to meet the needs. If we allow the
state to take over the management of our
local finances, what is to keep the same
financial situation from happening locally?
Government doesn't need overly large
surpluses. It needs to tax for the programs
the people say they want and let the people
keep all the surplus to spend as they wish.

Has Dog


Problem

Dear Mr. Ramsey,
For the past several years
we've had to put up with stray
dogs in our town. Even with
our leash lawwe have a
-serious problem. Our dog
-catcher tries to do the best
they can, but the problem's
still there and getting worse.
For the past week, I've had
z to battle this problem alone.
The dogs are digging under
my fence, climbing over it and
:: chased my child out of his own
S-yard to get to my female dogs.
SIt's been reported to the City,
and the City Police. I've been
told that the dog catcher will
try to pick these dogs up, but
that they're not saying they
won't come back. The police
* said they can't do a thing. Yet
if I shoot these dogs, then they
can arrest me for shooting a
firearm in the city. So tell me,
just how are we to protect our
children and our property?
These animals are loose to
cause automobile accidents,
chase bikes and cars, to dig
in our trash and so much
more. We can't call these ani-
mals dumb because they are
born with natural instincts to
do these things. The "dumb


said the Florida Highway
Patrol today.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "Many
drivers speed because they


animal" is the dog's master.
Because they are supposed to
have enough intelligence to
know and take care of their
pets, not to let them loose on
the public.
In my home town in Okla-
homa they write tickets to the
owners of these dogs. They
have to pay a fine and this fine
increases with every ticket
issued. The dog catcher and
the police officers both can
issue the tickets. If the dog
doesn't have an owner, then it
is put in the pound for so many
days before it is put away.


feel that accidents only hap-
pen to other people. But if
drivers analyze that state-
ment, they will realize that it
cannot be true."


This may sound very harsh,
but it's time to clean our town
up. And getting our stray dogs
cleaned up is only one of many
things, ...
I'm not the only one tohave
this problem. We are going to
be at the next city meeting to
express our views again. I
hope that others will do the
same. There's always a lot of
-red tape that leads us no
where. If you have any
suggestions Mr. Ramsey, we
would like to hear them.
Thank you.
Kathi Whitfield


"The one thing fast drivers
can prove to themselves is
that they can save money by
driving 55 or slower when on
the highway. They should fill
their gas tank at the start of a
trip, check the mileage and
when they arrive at their
destination or after driving
one to two hundred miles, fill
up the gas tank and check the
odometer reading again."
By dividing the number of
gallons used into the number
of miles traveled, the miles
per gallon can be determin-
ed."
Beach concluded by saying,
"Energy experts have warned
that our oil does not come
from a bottomless pit. Just
when we reach the bottom of
the pit, is up to us as
motorists."

February Is Gone And We Forgot Frankfurter and Saurkraut Week ,


TOMORROW WILL BE the last
day of February. Our winter is just
about gone. We have had hardly
: enough cold weather this year to kill
the bugs. Nor did we have enough for
the clothing stores to sell their coats
and jackets.
I suspect the clothing stores are
mote dismayed over the lack of coat
sales than they are over the bugs not
being killed.
-"e month of February got by me
before I could celebrate national kraut
and frankfurter week. National kraut
and frankfurter week comes in Febru-
ary, you know. As a matter of fact it
started on February 14, valentine's
Sday.
Now that I recall, I remember the
St. Joe Motel served the Rotary Club
: saurkraut and frankfurters on that
Thursday and all the members wonder-
ed why. They were celebrating and we
weren't.
Frankly, I like franks and saur-
kraut. When I was a yungun at home,
momma use to serve us (we called
them) weiners and saurkraut quite
often.


As a matter of fact, there isn't
much I don't like. That's my problem.
IN ORDER TO be alert for the
month of March, I looked ahead to see





ETAO!






what was coming up on us this next
month.
March has my favorite week in it.
Beginning Sunday, we start National
Procrastination Week. I can empa-
thize with national procrastination
week. Frenchie says I'm extra good at
observing national procrastination
week. I'm so good at it, I think I'll put
off observing it this year until some-


time next month or maybe next
year.
The calendar hanging on my wall
also says March brings us National
Save Your Vision Week (also next


week) and American Camping Week.
March has a week for Girl Scouts,
Poison Prevention, and Holy Week.
I guess the month was too crowded
to allow a week for everything, but the
month has a day set aside for: Black
Press, Campfire Girls Founders, St.
Patrick, Campfire Girls birthday,
Palm Sunday, World Day of Prayer,
Earth Day, American Agriculture Day,


International Women's Day, and .
most infamous of all.. my birthday!
March is traditionally the month of
the big blow:Here in the Panhandle this
usually doesn't come along until the


latter part of the month or first of April.
Still, March has the reputation of being
a windy month.
March will see the flowering trees
and shrubs begin to bloom here in Gulf
County. Before the month is over, every
yard in the county will be a riot of color
and sweet smells.
Even if it wasn't the month of my
birthday, I think March would still be


my favorite month.
I'VE LIVED THROUGH having a
grandchild or two. Many of you have
too. Most of us take this milestone in
our lives in stride and try to pretend it
never happened, because it makes us
sound so old, even though we are still
thinking in the 30's and not the 40's and
50's.
Becoming a grandparent is quite
a proud event, we have to admit. It's so
much different from becoming a
parent, that we can all experience new
and different thrills when a grandchild
is born.
Even so, I don't think becoming a
grandparent, either time, caused me to
lose my equilibrium. I think I remained
as sane as usual without doing too many
crazy things. I do remember driving 260
miles to see the first one, but after the
initial experience was over, we could
more or less take it in stride.
Not Charlie Parker and Inky.
They have become grandparents
before. As a matter of fact, they have
more than one grandchild, so they
should be accustomed to the feeling and


be able to experience the event with a
passing thrill like most of us.
Just last week, Charlie and Inky
had another grandchild, with a little
help from their daughter Nan and her
husband Vic.
Did Charley and Inky take this new
name in the family line with calm and
composure? No sir!
While I was putting papers out in
the sales distribution points Wednesday
evening of last week, I passed by their
house at Mexico Beach and there was a
big sign, right next to the highway at
the corner of their driveway, complete
with a huge pink ribbbn. The sign
announced to all the world as they
passed by that, "It's A Girl!"
We all understand the thrill,
Charley; especially if all your progeny
has been able to present you with is
hard-headed boys. You'll live through
it. Just sit back and relax.
My kids presented Frenchie and I
with eight of those knot-headed boys
before one of them finally got around to
having a girl. That was nearly three
years ago, and we made it through the
ordeal.

Florida National Bank to


Offer Student Counselling


: Typically, people have had
to go to banks to learn about
banking. Today, however, the
banks are going to the school
classroom to teach banking.
This is one of the manifesta-
tions of a new filmstrip
program, "Banking Is" which
the Florida First National
:Bank at Port St. Joe presented
as a public 'service to the
-students at Port St. Joe High
SSchool.
SIn conjunction with the
program, J. T. Cannon, presi-
dent of Florida First National
Bank at Port St. Joe has
created the position of Stu-
dent-Bank Counselor. Named
to the position was Kenneth
Weimorts, who will be avail-
able to the students for
financial advice and counsel-
ing.
At a presentation meeting,
last Thursday, at Port St. Joe
High School, Cannon delivered
the multimedia filmstrip unit
to Lamar Faison, DCT in-
structor.
In making the presentation,
Cannon said, "The program
:'Banking Is' gives the student
first-hand experience with the
basic banking activities he
I will use throughout his life.
S"'Writing a check, applying
: for a loan, computing interest
:.and using a bank's services
are things most adults take for
granted; we have done them
all our lives. But these activi-
Sties must be learned, and for
Many of today's students they
are as foreign as any new
endeavor.
: "Many adults learned bank-
ing by trial and error; but, in
today's world of advancing
technology, this is no longer a
satisfactory solution. For in-
stance, today check writing is
as much a part of life as
driving is. Ninety percent of
;all financial transactions are
;made by check and the
:American public will write
:over 21.5 billion checks this
:year. Yet, in spite of this,
statistics show that less than
785 percent of the graduating
seniors know how to write a


check properly. So, it is easy
to see that check writing is an
activity that each student
should understand if he is to
take his place in the financial
community.
"We hope our sponsorship of
this program will help give the
student a more thorough and
systematic understanding of
these basic banking activities

Tips On Controlling


Weeds In Your Lawn:


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
During the cool season,
when most of our lawngrasses
turns brown, it often appears
that weed problems are get-
ting out of control. Since many
stay green during the winter,
it can look like they are
spreading, even when they are
not, nevertheless, you may be
concerned about weeds and


how to control them.
Three basic types of weeds
occur in lawns throughout our
state. These are grassy weeds,
broadleaf weeds, and sedges.
Grassy weeds usually have
long narrow leaf blades, alter-
nating on either side of round
hollow stems. Broadleaf we-
eds can have a variety of leaf
shapes, and they usually have
showy flowers. Sedges can be
easily confused with grassy
weeds, because of their long,
thin leaves. However, sedges
usually have solid, triangular

stem, and their leaves tend to
radiate in three directions
from the stem.
These three types of weeds
will compete with your lawn
grass for valuable space,
nutrients, soil moisture, and
sunlight. Unsightly weeds al-
ways destroy your lawn's
appearance.
Many factors can cause
weeds to appear in a lawn.
Some of the common prob-
lems are improper watering,
mowing and fertilization.
Other potential problems in-
clude the wrong soil pH level,
failure, to choose a type of
grass adapted to your growing
site, and even excessive traf-
fice on your lawn. Insects,
diseases, and nematodes can
cause bare areas in your lawn,
which allows weeds to become
established.
Your first step in controlling
weeds is to. identify the
specific weeds which are
causing the problem. Next,
you should try to determine
what factors in your cultural
care of the lawn have causes
they weeds to appear.
Herbicides are available to
control existing weeds. But, if
you do not make the necessary
changes in the way you care
for your lawn, weeds may
continue their invasion. The
most effective way of control-
ling weeds is to maintain a
dense, vigorously growing
lawn.
Before attacking a weed
problem with herbicides, sev-
eral factors must be con-
sidered. First, make sure you
know what kind of turfgrass
you have in your lawn. This is
very important, because all
herbicides can not be used
safely on all turfgrass varie-
ties. Those that are effective
on certain types of turf will
seriously damage or kill
others. For example, the herb-
icide atrzine, can be used
safely on centipede or St.
Augustine grass. But, if it's
used on Bermuda or Bahiz-
grasses, it will injure your
lawn. By the same token, the
herbicides D-S-M-A or M-S-M-
A can be used on bermuda or
zoysiagrasses, but will dam-
age bahia, centipede, and St.
Augustine.
When you are you have
properly identified the weed
which is causing the problem,
you're ready to apply a
herbicide. There are many
herbicides available for con-
trol of common lawn weeds.
But, their effectiveness on
specific weed species, as well
as their safety on particular
turfgrass varieties, vines.
So, before applying any
herbicide to your lawn, check
with your county Extension
Director or a reputable nur-
sery, concerning the proper
chemical and recommended
application method. And, be-
fore using any herbicides,
always read the label and
carefully follow all directions.
Remember, herbicides can
damage more than just your
lawn. When improperly ap-
plied, they can injure orna-
mentals, and your neighbors
landscape as well.

Modern technology has done
much to reduce the cost of,
carpets and bring carpets into
most American, homes. This
has occurred while most pro-

Much of this can be attri-

Students Told


How to Plan


All ninth graders at Port St.
Joe Jr.-Sr. High School were
given the opportunity Friday,
February 22, to receive valu-
able information concerning
future planning. Rex Buzzett,
a local pharmacist, spoke to
the entire ninth grade class on
goal setting, time manage-
ment and performing at one's
maximum in undertaken
tasks.
Mr. Buzzett graduated from
the University of Florida, and
is a pharmacist at Buzzett's
Drug Store. He is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Gannon Buzzett.
He is married and resides with
his wife and two children in
Port St. Joe.
The presentation culmi-


nated a week of classroom
guidance activities conducted
by Mrs. Sarah A. Riley, coun-
selor, through ninth grade
history classes.

CARD OF THANKS
The family of the late
Waitus Jones, Sr., would like
to express its appreciation to
the people of Port St. Joe, for
all the love and kindness
shown to them during their
hours of bereavement.
We would like to express our
sincere appreciation to Dr.
Shirley Simpson for the care
she provided for him during
his long illness. Through her
acts of professionalism and
kindness we sincerely feel that
she was very instrumental in
helping his last days with us
be more comfortable.
We would also like to thank
the Gulf County Volunteer
Ambulance Squad for their
immediate aid during the
numerous occasions we called
them to transport our loved
one to and from the hospital.
It is our sincere prayer that
we continue to walk in unit,
and that God generously bless
each of you.


George!

Friday, February 22, our
school was visited by Scott
Hunter, past quarterback of
the University of Alabama,
the youngest quarterback,
since Doug Williams, to ever
lead an NFL team to a divi-
sional championship (Green
Bay Packers in 1972). He also
quarterbacked for the Atlanta
Falcons and is presently call-
ing plays for the Detroit Lions.
He is on tour for the Fellow-
ship of Christian Athletes. He
spoke at assemblies to Port St.
Joe High School and the Ele-
mentary School. He spoke
about his years playing with
the Crimson Tide. He told a
few anecdotes about Bear
Bryant and the other coaches,
and went on to tell about his
career as a professional foot-
ball player. He mainly stress-
ed the point of Christian fel-
lowship in sports and how
knowing Christ helped him in
his life. He was given a stand-
ing ovation by the students,
which we hope showed him
how much we enjoyed and
appreciated his speech.
WPFM FM Radio 108 gave
Port St. Joe a free dance for
their many letters sent by the
students vying for the Valen-
tine's Dance. Port St. Joe
students sent some 22,000 let-
ters, giving the post office a
lot of business. A Panama City
school won the free Valen-
tine's Dance, but WPFM gave
us a free dance also, for
coming in second for the most
unusual letters written.
Speaking on the behalf of the
students, we enjoyed the
dance and thank WPFM very
much for giving it to us.
The Key Club planted pine
trees on the school ground.
Some 500-odd pine trees under
the supervision of president,
Jerry Shores; vice president,
Jeff Wood; secretary, David
Bray and treasurer, Ronald
Minger were planted. The Key
Club is affiliated with the
Kiwanis and is sponsored by
Mr. Lamar Faison.
Thursday, February 14, the
St. Joe Singers gave a concert
for the student body. It was
Valentine's Day and everyone
was in a grand mood. The
lights were turned off and we
gave them a concert they will
remember for the rest of the
year. There were slow songs
for song dedications for the
couples, and fast songs for
everyone to clap to. After the
St. Joe Singers performed the
talented teachers group per-
formed a rock and roll medley
from their day. St. Joe Singers
are Mari Harrison, Deanna

OBITUARIES: THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fl

eachmet Rejects Roy F. Irwin Passes Away



Beach Lot Variance In Marianna After Illness


The controversy between
residents of St. Joe Beach and
those who would build houses
on the water side of Highway
98, played another chapter
Friday of last week.
Residents of the beaches
went in numbers to Tallahas-
see to attend a State Cabinet
meeting, where a variance for
one of the street ends in the
beaches area was to be
considered for a variance for
building.
The Cabinet turned the
request for variance down,
;after George Tapper of Port
St. Joe, speaking for the beach
residents, presented their ob-
jections to the variance.
Granting of variances along
the established set-back lines
at the beach has created
controversy for the past few
*years, between the beach
-residents of St. Joe Beach and
C. G. Costin, who owns most of
'the street ends.
(0 In Friday's hearings, Cos-
-tin, a local attorney, repre-
sented the property owner,
Theodore Meadows, of Al-
bany, Ga. Costin told The Star
.he had never owned the
property in question, but
merely represented Meadows
before the Cabinet.
Meadows was asking for a
variance so he could build on
'his property beyond the set-
back line. The state gives
,.permission and sets criteria
*which must be met for build-
ing over the set-back line,
which has been established
along the entire shoreline of
.,the state to prevent damage to
the beaches and damage to the
:buildings from storms.
In his argument before the
:Cabinet, Tapper argued that
:there were errors in the
'description of the property on
the variance application; the
:size of the property didn't
comply with other criteria for
,building beyond the service of
central water and sewer sys-
.tems, and charged that state
.-construction requirements in
other former variances along
$the beach had not been carried
out according to the state's
regulations.
11 -. I 1 1 1


wr


Costin told the Cabinet the
state cannot deprive the own-
er the use of his property, and
that what had happened in the
past had no bearing on the
present request for a var-
iance.
Attorney General Jim Smith
made a motion to grant the
variance, stating, "We are
bound by our engineering
reports on this matter and
they approve the variance."


Matthew 8:23-26 (NAS)
Key Word: Faith of Man
(Verse 23) And when He got
into the boat, His disciples
followed Him. (Verse 24) And
behold, there arose a great
storm in the sea, so that the
boat was covered with the
waves; but He Himself was
asleep. (Verse 25) And they
came to Him, and awoke Him
saying, "Save us, Lord, we are
perishing!" (Verse 26) And He
said to them, "Why are you
timid, you men of little faith?"
Then He arose, and rebuked
the winds and the sea; and it
became perfectly calm.
The disciples were willing to
start the trip with Jesus. Even
though Jesus had been busy
teaching them the principles
of faith, they had not learned
to use their faith. Satan wait-
ed until Jesus was asleep and
then suddenly brought a vio-
lent storm upon them attempt-
ing to destroy them in a
moment. The disciples were
assuming that the enemy
would not attack when they
wer enear Jesus even in the
middle of His Will. We are
today exactly this same way.
Satan attacks when we are not
watching for him. This is done
to rattle us in hope that we will
exercise our timidity instead
of our authority! The disciples
became openly scared out of
their senses. When awakened


Smith received no second to
his motion.
Insurance Commissioner
Gerald Lewis then made a
motion to deny the variance
and suggested the rules for
granting variances be review-
ed. Insurance Commissioner
Bill Gunter seconded the
motion, and it passed.
The variance was denied
until the rules can be examin-
ed.


Jesus did not jump up, He lay
there and asked them why
were they too timid to use the
authority of their faith to
settle the situation they were
in. They could have done three
things. (1) They could have
recognized where the problem
was coming from and ridden
the storm out without fear. (2)
They could have calmed the
storm as Jesus did. (3) They
could have given up and died.
Obviously, the way Jesus
had to show them was best.
We can meet our problems
without fear and with the
Word of God, doing what Jesus
taught us and assigned the
Holy Spirit who lives in
believers to teach us. We have
faith given us; we are to exer-
cise it every moment of every
day.

The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met on January 22 in
regular 'session witf The Tol-
lowing members present:
Douglas C. Birmingham,
Chairman, Leo Kennedy,
James L. Tankersley, and
William R, Branch. Others
present were: George Y. Core,
Clerk, William J. Rish, Attor-
ney, K. E. Murphy, Sheriff,
Lloyd Whitfield, Road Super-
intendent, and Tommy Pitts,
Administrative Assistant.
The meeting came to order
at 7:00 p.m.
The Attorney opened the
meeting with prayer, followed
by the pledge to the flag.
The minutes of January 8,
1980, were read, approved,
and adopted.
The Chaiiman announced
that the first business to be
considered by the Board
would be whether or not the
I Commission would adopt an
ordinance dealing with trash,
abandoned vehicles, nuisance
conditions, etc.; that a public
hearing was held on this
proposed ordinance at the
meeting of January 8,1980, but
was continued for final action
at this meeting. He then
opened the meeting as a public
hearing, The Chairman noted
that a great majority of those
present had attended the
public hearing mentioned a-
ove and expressed their
opposition to the proposed
ordinance at that time; that
because their opposition had
already been received by the
Commission, he requested
them not to repeat themselves
at this meeting, unless they
had something new to offer.
The Cairman then asked if
anyone present wished to
speak in favor of the ordi-
nance. Mr. Buck Rhames
stated that he favored the
ordinance or some type ordi-
nance that would require a
deplorable condition, such as
exists around his home in
Highland View to be cleaned
up. He said there were three
abandoned and dilapidated
buildings surrounding his
home, which is a very un-
sightly and a hazardous situa-
tion.
There being no others to
speak in favor of the ordi-
sugnance, the Chairman asse4
the members of the Board if
they wanted to pursue the
passing of the ordinance.
Commissioner Kennedy
said he had re-worked the
wording of the ordinance and
suggested the Commission
might wish to consider his
version. Commissioner Tank-
ersley suggested that Com-
missioner Kennedy's version
be studied and be considered
at a later hearing.
Commissioner Branch re-
quested the Chairman to in-
form those present why the
Commission decided to con-
sider the ordinance. The
Chairman then told the ordi-
nance that citizens from Oak
Grove requested an ordinance
be passed that would cause
land owners in that com-
munity to make it a cleaner
and better place to live and
that other citizens have from

time to time requested a
clean-up, junkyard type ordi-
nance; that the Commission
decided to hold these public
hearings in order to determine
whether or not it would be in
the best interest to pass the
ordinance.
Commissioner Brach sug-
gested that the Chairman
appoint a committee, with
Commissioner Kennedy as
Chairman, to make a study of
the proposed ordinance as
re-worked by Commissioner
Kennedy. He asked that the
Committee by selected from
those present at this hearing.
Commissioner Kennedy said
he would not Chair such a
committee because he op-
posed the ordinance. Commis-
sioner Branch asked Commis-
sioner Kennedy if he was
saying that he was not for an
ordinance. Commissioner
Kennedy answer, "I did not
say that, I said I would not
head up the Committee."
The Chairman called for
any further remarks before
the Board acted on. the pro-
posed Ordiance. Several
people spoke in opposition-to
the Ordinance. The Chair-
man called for a motion on the
ordinance and after there
being no motion either for or
against the passage of the
ordinance, the Chairman de-
clared the proposed ordinance
dead. He then appointed the
following committee and
charged them with making a
study as to whether or not an
ordinance was needed with
reference to junkyards, trash,
or any deplorable condition
and to make their recommen-
dation to this Board as soon as
possible, to-wit: Leo Kennedy,
Chairman, Wallace Tillery;
George Whiting; Sara Ann
Wood; Buck Rhames; Conrad
Morien; and Myrtle Raffield.
Commissioner Tankersley
moved to table any further
consideration of such an ordi
nance until after the commit-
tee made its recommendation
to the Board Motion seconded
by Commissioner Branch and
unanimously carried.
Mrs. Margaret Biggs re-
quested the Board to adopt an
ordinance making it unlawful
to dispose of nuclear waste or
other substance that were a
health hazard. She also re-
quested the Commission to
urge all Northwest Florida
Counties to take the same
action. There was a motion by
Commissioner Branch second-
ed by Commissioner Kennedy,
and it was unanimoulsy car-
ried, that the Attorney pre-
pare the ordinance and adver-
ise for a public hearing on
this matter. The Board said it
would mail a copy of the
ordinance, if and when adopt-
ed, to all counties in North-
west Florida and urge them to
take the same action. Com-
missioner Kennedy said he
would present this proposal to
the Apalachee Regional Plan-
ning Council at its meeting of
January 24, 1980, and request-
the Council to take a stand on
this matter.
The Board heard several
complaints as to ditches that

Road Superintendent was in
structed to take care of thesn
ditches. The Board also dis
cussed the Beacon Hill straetb
that have been cut by th<
contractor installing the watei
line from Mexico Beach t(
Gulf Aire Subdivision. Com
missioner Kennedy said thai
he was disappointed that th(
water line would end at Gull
Aire because the first proposal
was that the line would run tc
St. Joe Beach. He said thai
sometime in the future the
entire Beach area would have
water and sewer.
The Clerk reported that Mr.
Fred Corsby of Southwest
Industries, owner of the prop
erty where Corley s-ougli
intersects the Apalachicola
River, has agreed to provide
the necessary easement for
Corley Slough to be opened for
$10.00. The Chairman said this
was indeed welcome news.
This will speed up the efforts
of this Board and the United
States Corps of Engineers to
open Corley slough. Where-
upon, there was a motion by
commissioner Tankersley,
seconded by Commissioner
Branch, and it was unanim-
ously carried, to accept this
offer.
The Clerk read a letter from
Mrs. Ira S. Gorham, president
of the Hospital Auxiliary,
thanking the commission for
its donation to the special
equipment fund.
The Tax Appraiser filed his
Certificate of Correction (5-
13211) for Parcel No. 566.4,
assessed value 24,880.00,
corrected value $14,880.00.
The Board approved this cor-
rection.
The Veteran's Officer filed a
report showing that Gulf
County veterans received
$90,206.00 in benefits from
July 1,1979 to December 31,
1979.
The Board discussed its
policy of not accepting appli-
cations for employment, but
that all vacancies would be
advised by the Florida State
Employment Office, who will
receive the applications,
grade and make recommen-
dations as to those best
qualified. The Clerk said
several people have attempt-
ed to file their application at
the Courthouse, due to the fact
that the Port st. J. mploy-
ment Service Office is now
closed and the nearest office is
located in Panama City. The
Panama City offices has agre-
ed to handle Gulf county
applications whenever re-
quested by the County Com-
missioners or any elected offi-
cial. It was decided not to
change the present policy at
this time.
Upon motion by commis-
sioner Tankersley, seconded
by commissioner Branch, and
unanimously carried, the fol-
lowing resolution was adopt-
ed:
RESOLUTION 80-2
WHEREAS, the Gulf County
Board of County Commission-
ers herein called the "Appli-
cant" after thorough consid-
eration of the problem and

The project to be conducted

Sheriff's Department.
Be it resolved by the Gulf
County Board of County Com-
missioners, in open meeting
assembled in the city of Port
St. Joe, Florida, this 22nd day
of January, 1980, as follows:
That the Apalachee Region-
al Planning Council be hereby
authorized to file in behalf of
the Applicant an application in
the form prescribed by the
Florida Bureau of Criminal
Justice Assistance for a grant
to be made to the applicant to
assist in defraying the cost of
the project generally describ-
ed above.
That if such grant be made,
the applicant shall provide or
make necessary arrange-
ments to provide such funds
and-or in-kind contributions in

defray the cost of the project
generally described above.
That the applicant is aware
that the minimum required
non-federal cost of the project

lachee Regional Planning
Council, is hereby authorized

a Tommy Pitts, Administra-
tive Assistant, presented an
application filed by Mexico
Beach for a utility permit for a
water distribution system in
Beacon Hill. Mr. Pitts recom-
mended the permit be grant-
ed. Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Tankersley, seconded
by Commissioner Branch, and
r unanimously carried, this ap-
5 plication was approved and
the permit issued.
The Administrative Assist-
ant informed the Board that it
was necessary to give the
Commission's endorsement of
pledging the 80 percent sur-
plus gasoline tax funds accru-
ing to the Department of
Transportation for use in the
repayment of the road bond
issue. He said the bond issue
was running as per schedule
and that the county should
receive the $2,200,000.00 in
March. There was a motion by
Commissioner Tankersley,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, and it was un-
animously carried that the
Commission give its endorse-
ment.
The Administrative Assist-
ant briefed the Board as to
progress being made by Stub-
bs-Hannon, Inc., Tallahassee,
Florida, in its water system
for Cape Breezes Subdivision.
He said a system that will
deliver between 150,000 and
200,000 gallons of potable
water per day was the latest
plan, which will supply ade-
quate water to Cape Breezes,
Peninsula Estates, the Sun-
land Recreational Park, and
the T.H. Stone State park. The
system will be a six inch line
and the distribution line will
be a nine mile system of four
inch PVC pipe.
The Board discussed the
continued disposal of garbage
by unknown persons at the
south end of Georgia Avenue.
The Mosquito Control Depart-
ment was asked to clean up
this garbage and the Sheriff
was requested to watch this
area in an effort to learn who
is disposing this garbage.
Tommy Pitts informed the
Board that the new doors
have been installed on the St.
Joe Ambulance Building and
that the first sight selected for
a Port St. Joe sanitary landfill
cannot be obtained because it
is too close to the cemetery,
but that a new site will be
selected.
Commissioner Kennedy
suggested that in paving the
streets in Overstreet, the
entire horseshoe should be
paved rather than paving only
one part of it. The Board said
it will take a look at it before
adding to the project as now
planned.
Commissioner Kennedy
then discussed a ditch prob-
lem at Fourth Street in High-
land View and some work
being done on Second Avenue
in Oak Grove. He also discus-
sed an apparent problem
between the county Building
Inspector and the County
Sanitation Officer. The Chair-
man requested Mr. Kennedy
to meet with each of these of-
ficers in an effort to correct
this matter.
Commissioner Kennedy
then discussed a problem of
water overflowing form Mon-
ica Drive in Ward Ridge. He
said the new paved road
overflows before the water
can reach the catch basin.
Commissioner Brach said he
and Mr. Pitts will inspect this
site on January 23rd.
Commissioner Tankersley
discussed several drainage
problems.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed the need for a dump
trailer and moved to advertise
to purchase one used dump
trailer. Motion seconded by
Commissioner Kennedy and
unanimously carried.
Commissioner Branch re-
quested the Road Department


to clean out the big ditch that
was discussed by Mrs. Ann
Wood at the earliest date
possible, due to the fact that
many people will be planting
their gardens on the bank of
this ditch within a few weeks.
A discussion was had as to
the junked draglines that were
advertised for sale, but were
not sold. It was decided to
determine a minimum price
and start from there.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed the closing of the
Employment Office and asked
what happened to the CETA
position assigned to that of-
fice. He said that this position
should be returned to the
Mosquito Control Depart-
ment. This matter wi be
checked into.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed the possibility ofng
away with the County Fuel
Allocation Officer, returning
this position to the State. He
said that because this office
has no authority in allocating
gasoline and fuels, it serves no
purpose.

The Chairman discussed the
need for a survey on the
Burgess Creek Road in order
to be assured that all neces-
sary easements are in hand
before the paving program
reaches that project. Commis-
sioner Branch made a motion,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, and it was un-o-
animously carried, that a
survey be made and paid for
from secondary road funds.
The Chairman then discussed
the need to relocate a portion
of the Douglas landing Road
and suggested that the re-
locate_ portion be surveyed
and staked out in order that
the land owners will know
what they will be required to
give.-The administrative As-
sistant suggested that the
Engineers now employed by
the County do this survey
work because it was part of
their contract.
The Chairman asked if we
had heard from the State
Department of Community
Affairs as to the Board's
request for survey of job
classifications and pay plan
for all County positions for the
Road Department and Mos-
quito Control Department.
The Clerk answered that Gulf
County was now on the
priority list for this survey and
study, to be done this year.
The Chairman directed the
Administrative Assistant to
stay on top of the Corley Slugh
Project now that an agree-
ment has been reached as to
the required easement.
There being no other busi-
ness, the meeting adjourned.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, FEB. 28, 1980


lity of



Getting


rer


The "quality of life" in the United
States-as measured by seven environ-
mental indicators-remained virtually
unchanged last year as the nation wound
up a decade marked by the enactment of
many environmental protection laws, the
National Wildlife Federation reported in
'its 11th annual study of environmental
trends.
NWF, the nation's largest nonprofit
citizens conservation organization, found
in its 1980 Environmental Quality Index
(EQI) study that four of the seven
resources that go into the index-wildlife,
water, soil and forests-remained un-
cha ared in oualSt over tho nast vear


Another component of the EQI-air
quality-improved in 1979, while two
others-minerals and living space-de-
clined in quality. Last year was the first
time since 1970 that the majority of the
seven natural resources did not register a
decline on the EQI.
During 1979 there was "progress on a
number of fronts," from pollution abate-
ment and solar research to wetlands
protection and wildlife management,"
explains the EQI report, which is
published in the February issue of
National Wildlife magazine. But while
many past gains were consolidated, "at
fh political level environnmentnl nro-


grants and priorities suffered setbacks
from which they may not soon recover,"
the report concludes.
The EQI is an analysis of the state of
the nation's natural resources based on a
combination of objective measurements
and the subjective judgments of the NWF
staff in consultation with government
experts and academic researchers. Five
federal agencies-the Bureau of Land
Management, the Council on Environmen-
tal Quality, the Fish and Wildlife Service,
the Forest Service and the Soil Conserva-
tion Service-now cooperate with the
Federation in the collection of resources
data.

"We can help fight this

Hutto Gets Defense


Installation for Dist.


Congressman Earl Hutto
announced from Washington,
D.C., this week that the Navy
Diving and Salvage School
will begin its move to the
Panama City area in May of
1980.
The school will be housed in
a new facility being completed
at the Naval Coastal Systems
Center, and plans call for full
operation to commence by
October 1980. The Navy Div-
ing School was established in
1928 at Washington, D.C., and
will graduate its last class at
this facility in May of 1980.
Hutto noted that relocation
was designed to comply with
the Congressional mandate to
move more military function
out of the high-cost Washing-
ton area. Congressman Hutto
further stated that he is
currently looking at other
functions which might be able
to make use of the Navy and
Air Force facilities in the
District. The relocation of the
diving school is the second
major military function to
move to the Panama City area


in the past year.
"Recently the Air Force
Engineering and Systems
Center occupied a new facility
at Tyndall Air Force Base and
has shown the Department of
Defense the sound rationale
for coming to the area," Hutto
said.
The facility being completed
for the Navy Diving and
Salvage School provides over
60,000 square feet of space to
the school at a cost of
approximately $11 million.

County Declared A Disaster Area, by Gov. Graham; e



$750,000 Lost In Oyster Sales Because of Scare


Governor Bob Graham
added Gulf County to the list of
North Florida counties desig-
nated as an economic disaster
area because of the drop in
oyster sales Wednesday of last
week.
Graham requested last
week that oyster harvesters
and processors in Wakulla and
Franklin counties be offered
long-term federal loans to
boost their sagging busines-

Small Business Administra-

It still remains to be seen
whether the disaster area will

oyster producers eligible for
low cost government loans to
overcome the financial licking
they have taken from the
publicity, Disaster loans in the
past have been granted only in
areas devastated by natural
disasters such as storms.
Oyster producers say they
are due the disaster status
because of the particular
situations and publicity which
put them in the position they


are in.
McNeill said whether or not
the disaster loans become
available, he is going to take
steps-4o immunize his firm
from any further recurrence
of such unfavorable publicity.
McNeill says his firm is in
the process of building three
large holding tanks which will
keep the oysters alive with
circulating lagoon water until
they are shipped to market.


"We will hold them no longer
than three days, allowing the
lagoon water to clean up the
oysters and give them the
lagoon flavor. Too, if there is
any danger of disease from
the shell fish, the period spent
in the holding tanks will
eliminate this possibility", he
said.

ron of Panama City, said last
Wednesday that Apalachicola

Bay oyster harvesters and
processors had promised to
cooperate with state officials
in efforts to clean up the

oyster industry.
Oyster producers blame
part of the present situation on
the laxity of state inspectors in
carrying out their responsibil-
ities.
Grady Levins, president of
a newly formed Apalachicola
Bay Oyster Dealers Associa-
tion, said last week at a
meeting in Apalachicola that
11 oyster houses went out bf
business last week, and 10
more are expected to close
because of economic pressure.
Levins said disaster loans, if
approved, would be used to
improve sanitary facilities in
oyster plants.
