The City Commission de-
clared the month of April as
clean-up, paint-up, fix-up
month in Port St. Joe at their
meeting Tuesday night.
In setting out the month for
this special activity Mayor
Frank Pate said the City
would utilize its equipment
and manpower in aiding local
residents to clean up their
environs and ridding the City
of accumulated trash and
debris.
The City provides free trash
disposal all through the year,
but during the month of April,
an extra emphasis will be
placed on collecting and dis-
posing of debris which resi-
dents wish to get rid of in the
special clean-up endeavor.
This doesn't mean the City
will do all the actual clean-up
in the month to follow. In
making the special proclama-
tion, Mayor Pate urged that
all property owners make a
special effort in cleaning up
around them and utilize the
City's trash hauling facilities
to dispose of their wastes.
Those who have special
hauling needs during the
month should call the City

Wewahitchka Opens New


Health Clinic Complex


After waiting and watching
for several months, the people
of Wewahitchka officially
opened their new health clinic
Sunday afternoon, and instal-
led a new doctor in the
facilities to provide medical
care to people of the area.
The clinic, a renovated
home, under the federal
health services program, is
located on Church Street
behind the Gulf County Volun-
teer Ambulance building.
Arriving in time for the
dedication ceremony was We-
wahitchka's new doctor, Dr.
Russell P. Blanton. Dr. Blan-
ton has just recently come to
Wewahitchka, and will be
working under the govern-
ment health services plan to
provide medical care from the
new facility.
The new clinic is fully
equipped with the most mod-
ern equipment such as a new
continental X-ray machine, a
phonogram EKG system con-
nected to a computer center in
Houston, Texas for instant
reading and diagnosis by a
cardiologist.
The fully staffed unit em-
ploys a doctor, nurse, office
manager and receptionist
with a modern up-to-date
record keeping system. The
facility has four complete
exam rooms adequately
equipped to handle all types of
situations.
The building was pur-


chased by a state grant
through the City of Wewahitc-
ka and with the assistance of a


federal grant it is now com-
pleted and ready to receive
patients.

$15 Billion Budget Cut Still Small Percentage


The latest promise this week is that the
federal budget will be balanced with a
. budget cut. The President, the House of
Representatives and the Senate have all
come up with their versions of a reduction of
the new federal budget, approved only two
months ago, to make it come in balance with
estimated revenues.
While none of the cuts are the same, the
average is a reduction of some $15 billion.
That's a sizeable sum, even in today's
dollars.
But is it such a sizeable sum? Based on
both the current and proposed budget, that's
about seven day's spending. The proposed
cut would reduce your taxes by one week of
withholding this next year ... .provided the
entire tax cut goes into the withholding tax
department. Likely it won't mean a. penny
saving to you since the cut was made to
balance the budget, not give you more
money in your pocket. So, you see, the deal
is that the spending cut will just not obligate
you for an extra week of withholding taxes
next year, rather than free you from paying
one week of withholding.


For more people, the spending cut would
amount to less money, individually, than the
people of Florida were saved in ad valorem
taxes by the recent approval of the $25,000
exemption for school taxing purposes.

When considered on a benefit per capital,
the spending reduction doesn't amount to all
that much, but when you consider the cold,
impersonal $15 billion cut, it's a lot of


money. That amounts to about twice the
annual budget for the State of Florida.
The savings announced in the 1981
budget amount to just a little over two
percent of the total proposed spending plan.
This is where the cut doesn't appear to
amount to much, even though it is a pile of
money. Even so, this small step toward
fiscal responsibility is a welcome one. With
the budget balanced only once in 20 years,


federal spending is getting a little on the
ridiculous side. With our financial situation
as it has been for the past 10-12 years, we
should be running a small surplus.
Evidence of the fact that we were
spending too much is the ease with which the
budget was trimmed to meet our revenue
source.
That smacks of irresponsibility.


Evident That Congress Still Listens


While we feel the people of the United
States are only trading the windfall profits
tax on oil for the deficit we have been
running every year, it is still evident
, Congress still listens to the wishes of the
people.
In effect, we have had passed the
budget-amendment act which has been
gaining steam for passage the past two
years.
The budget amendment act grew out of


California's Proposition 13 amendment and
is fast on its way toward ratification by
enough states to be declared a part of the
Constitution.

There is still plenty of doubt the
amendment will ever be a part of the
Constitution despite its popularity with the
people today. The evident popularity has
been responsible, more so than inflation, for
the current attitude of the Congress and the
President to balance the federal budget.


Even though the budget has been
balanced by President Carter's proposed oil
import tax and the windfall profits tax
against oil profits, the budget is balanced.
We balanced it by paying more taxes. Don't
think for a minute all those billions of dollars
for import and windfall profits taxes are
going to come out of big oil's pocket. They
will come out of yours and ours.
Now, we just need to carry our
Proposition 13 fever a little farther and bring
the tax take into line.


Shocked by the
SAthlete's Reaction


:Dear Editor,
It was a shocking scene on
Television to watch the Presi-
dent of the United States of
'America being insulted by a
group of Olympic athletes.
There was dead silence when
the President walked in to talk
to them. I have never seen
such a display of bad manners
in the fifty-five years I have
been an American. At Joint
sessions of our Congress, at
news conferences and at pub-
lic appearances people rise
and applaud the head of our
State, not because he is an
individual; but, because he is


Bible Notes
John 17:15 (NIV)
Key Word: Staying Power
"My prayer is not that you
take them out of the world, but
that you protect them from the
evil one."
The entire Chapter of John
17 is a prayer of Jesus to God
about people who believe in
Him. In Verses 6 and 20, Jesus
identifies those the prayer is
for. Those given Him out of
this world and all people who
will ever believe in Jesus until
He comes again.
. Sometime we Christians for-
get:that we are still residing
here on earth. It is true that
our home is heaven, but for


our nation's elected President.
In such cases both the man
and the office are honored and
it is a disservice to the Office
of the Presidency and to the
rest of us when our leader is
embarrassed by a small group
intent on serving their own
selfish interests.
Are they the only ones who
are being hurt by the Boycott?
Can those athletes not re-
member Cuba, Angola, Iran,
Ethiopia, Rhodesia, Yemen,
Mozambique, Afghanistan
and Vietnam and have they
forgotten, so soon, Kruschev's
statement that they would


right now it is here on earth. In
the 15th verse Jesus prays for
protection for us from Satan,
the evil one. His prayer was
not that after we become
Christians God would carry us
on to Heaven right then. The
Christian has a work to do,
that of living and walking in
the Spirit showing love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentle-
ness, and self-control. We are
to love with the. Love of God.
We are to lead others to
become Christians through
our living. Satan will steal
everything we have if we
allow it. Resist Satan and he
will flee from us. The Word of
God says so and it is true.


bury us? That.statement has
never been retracted.
Did those of us who served
in World War 1, World War 2,
Korea and Vietnam not give
up anything? A few even gave
up their lives. Many even gave
up jobs and careers and
families, and thousands
wound up in VA hospitals and
many will be there for the rest
of their lives. Can the possible
winning of an Olympic medal
be compared to all this and do
Olympic gold, silver and
bronze medals take preced-
ences over their country's
basic interests and dignity or
am I wrong to feel that they do

Wayne C. King, son of Mr. and

OSUT is a 12-week period

The training included wea-

The President ought to have
encouraged them to go to
Moscow, provided they com-
peted under the Red Flag.
That would be o-kay and
would prevent the American
Flag being dipped in salute to
the Russian Overlords. I am
ashamed of these young
people. I do not feel they
represent the millions of
young people in America and
this, in my opinion, disquali-
fies them from representing
our great and beloved coun-
try.
We have taken much from

SALTY
SALLY


Figuring What to Do With A Gift Sometimes Takes Some Thought


EVERY TIME I RUN into Joe
Fortner, he happens to have some-
thing in his pick-up truck he will give
me. Recalling the times in the past
when our paths have crossed, I don't
ever remember Joe being without
something in his pick-up truck he
wants me to have.
Joe probably does everyone like
that, sjnce he is a very gregarious
person.
; The other day, Joe and I both
were signing a note in the same
service station, to get our vehicles
filled up with gasoline and were
passing the time of day, when Joe
said, "I have something I want you to
have in the back of my truck."
: He then walked around in back of
the truck, reached down beside the
dig box which always resides there
aifd picked up a long stick about the
size of a broom handle. He began to
poke the stick back up behind the dog
box and under the saddle-type tool box
and eventually came out with a
Perfect shaped dipper gourd.
He handed me the gourd and told
me to make a water dipper out of it,
make a martin house and-or plant the


seed.
Joe didn't know it, but he stirred
up a problem for me or I should
say three problems.
+ ++
IF I TAKE HIS ADVICE and plant












the seed, I may get into trouble.
To properly plant a gourd seed, it
must be planted where the growing
vine can climb up on a fence.-
The only fence around my yard
belongs to my neighbor, Bill Rich. Bill
might not take too kindly to my
planting gourd seeds on his fence.
But, when you stop and examine


the situation, I guess I have the right.
One side of his fence is on my
property, isn't it? Then, there would
be nothing to keep Bill from picking
the gourds which grew on my vine on
his side of the fence.


Bill might even look kindly on the
gourd planting, since he is bent
toward putting up places for birds to
house in, feed in, and enjoy their visit
to his back yard.
Bill might not raise much of a fuss'
if I planted the seeds on his fence, half
of which faces my property. But there
is his wife Betty. Betty likes things to


stay neat and clean. She might nqt
take umbrage to a gourd growing up
her side of a back yard fence.
I THOUGHT ABOUT using the
gourd for an old fashioned water


dipper. I remember drinking fresh
cool water from an old gourd. The
taste was different and it was enjoy-
able. It was one of those things you
remember with pleasure.
But, even here, I have problems.
In the first place, there is no
fresh, cold, bubbly spring of fresh
water rising up in my back yard ...
or even my front yard. To get the


most out.of a fresh drink of water in a
gourd, it should be the cold, sparkling
water from a spring or a deep dug
well.
I have neither.
Would the mystique of a gourd full
of fresh water be lost on a ladle full of
the strained, filtered, chlorinated,
softened, limed, aerated liquid we
substitute for cold, clear, sparkling
spring water?
I might just try it and see.
+ ++
THE OTHER SUGGESTION that I
use the gourd for a martin house
probably holds the most promise, even
though it, too, has problems.
We could use some martins at our
house. Along about sundown on a still
evening, the mosquitoes will take over
our back yard. They tell me a martin
thrives on mosquitoes. On some of
these still, quiet evenings we have this
time of the year, a martin could dine
royally in our neighborhood from
about sundown to dark.
I could put the gourd up in my
pear tree, or pecan tree, if I could get
one of my frisky grandsons to climb
the tree and place the gourd on a


limb.
There would be no trouble getting
a grandson to climb the tree. The
problem is to keep them out of the
trees until the trees get strong enough
to hold them up.
I can even manage the hole in the
gourd for the martins to go in and, out
at. I have a piece of wire on hand with
which to attach the gourd to the limb.
But stifl I have a problem.
The problem is Houdini, our cat.
Houdini dearly loves birds and
thinks I do too.
Every so often, he will catch a
bird, kill it and bring it to the door
where he will set up a,howl until he
gets inside.
After he gets in, Houdini will lay
the bird at my feet like an offering of
some sort.
I would hate to be the direct cause
of Houdini killing a martin by luring
him to my back yard with a promise
of a nice house to live in.
I'M GOING TO do something with
this latest gift from Joe. I just have to
give it a little more thought before I
make my move.

Fla. Mental

"Proceeds will benefit the
Mental health Association in
Florida,".said Richard M.
Gray, State President of the
voluntary citizens' associa-
tion.
As a non-governmental
agency the association can
and does speak for the con-
sumer- the person who needs
professional help for an emo-
tional disturbance.
"The Association is a mov-
ing force to get services
established where there are
.none. It also serves as a
monitoring agency to see that
treatment services are doing
what they were set up to do."
said Mr. Gray.
The Mental Health Associa-
tion strongly promotes more
community-based care as well
as more research into the
causes of mental illness.
The Association offers liter-
ature to the public on a variety
of topics including depression,
alcoholism, and positive men-
tal health concepts. For free
information, write to the Men-
tal Health Association of Flor-
ida, 132 East Colonial Drive,

Tax Collector Harland Prid-
geon told the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club, the state of
Florida is changing its system
of identifying and issuing
automobile tags. again.
Pridgeon says the tags are
now due on the birthday of the
person to whom the tag is
issued. "That means the own-
er is delinquent on the day
after his birthday", Pridgeon
said.
The Collector pointed out
that many people are under
the misconception the new
tags are due during the month
of a person's birth. 1"They are
due on your birthday", Prid-
geon emphasized.
All new Florida auto license
tags will carry six digits,
Pridgeon said. The coding will
come in the number of letters
and figures on the plates. For

) MELANIE QUINN

Is One
Melanie Quinn celebrated
her first birthday with friends
and relatives with a party on
Sunday, March 30.
Melanie is the daughter of
Willie and Cora Quinn.


.instance, a trailer tag has one
letter and five numbers; a car
had three letters and three
numbers; a truck over 5,000
pounds carry a tag with two
letters and four numbers.
The tag owner now keeps
the tag with him. "If a person
trades cars, he must keep his
tag. Also he must have his tag
registration receipt in his
vehicle at all times in order to
prove ownership."
Pridgeon said there are now
over 9,000 license tags of some
variety being sold in Gulf
County annually.
In a related matter for his
office, Pridgeon said county
tax payers now may pay their
taxes quarterly. They must
pay in advance, however.
Those tax payers who wish
to pay their taxes for next
year in four installments,
must declare with his office
prior to June, what he thinks
his taxes will be and begin
making payments. The first
payment is due in June of this
year, with subsequent pay-
ments due in September,
December and the final pay-
ment in March when the
difference between the esti-
mate and actual tax will be
paid.

Poetry
"THE GARDEN OF
WHISPERS"
When dawn pierced the skies
low
With quivering arrow,
A lovely God burst a tomb by
his powers.
Leaving a garden wild
Trembling like a child.
Trembling, wet faces of bewil-
dered flowers.
"His feet trod above me,
Like increase, above me.
Myrrh, aloes, spices perfumed
All the air,"
Cried the blue violet.
Vowing not to for-get
Those beloved bruises His feet
had left there.
"His hands soothed my leaves
As he stood by these trees,
White and transparent and
still, by my side,"
Murmured the red rose,
Who had seen day close
Drenched in her own tears,
seeing He died.
Then a bright whisper crept
Where dew-tipped lilies kept
Their calm sweet purity lifted
in season.
Whispers-"Why weepest
thou?" and "Whom seekest
thou?"
It was Jesus, the Christ, who
hath died and is risen".

After being washed out
Friday and Saturday by con-
tinuous rains, the Sharks
bounced back Monday after-
noon to play errorless ball
behind the two-hit pitching of
Steve Peak to set down
Florida High, 6-0.
Peak marked up seven
strike outs and gave up three
walks in picking his fourth win
against two losses.
The Sharks scored in their
first chance at bat Monday. In
the first inning, Greg Abrams
hit a single, Peak reached
base on a walk and Freddie
Woullard hit a base hit to left
field to score Abrams with the
first and winning run of the
game.
In the second, the Sharks
added to their lead, when Tim
Stutzman hit safely, Tim
Beard reached first on. an
error and Abrams walked to
load the bases. Blane Cox
doubled down the left field line
to score Stutzman and Beard.
A wild pitch scored Abrams


and Peak then banged out a
double to score Cox.
The Sharks last run came
when Castledara Gant reach-
ed base after being hit by a
pitch. Beard singled and Cox
drove in Gant with a single.
Freddie Woullard led the
Shark hitting with two safe-
ties. Beard, Abrams, Cox,
Peak, Ronald Miller and
Stutzman each had one hit.
Tuesday's game with
Blountstown was another
story a sad story. The
Tigers had two big innings in
the second and fourth which
spelled an 8-2 defeat for the
Sharks.
Things looked good for the
Sharks in the second inning
when Freddie Woullard came
to the plate and parked a Tiger
pitch over the fence, to give
the Sharks a 1-0 lead.
The Tigers came right back
in the bottom of the second
and racked the Sharks for five
big runs.
The Tigers came back again
in the fourth inning and scored
three runs to build their lead
to 8-1.
The only other Shark threat
came in the fifth inning, when
the Sharks scored one on walk
and two singles. Castledara
Gant was hit by a pitched ball
for the second day in a row,
Tim Beard, then Blane Cox
drove singles into the outfield,
with Cox's hit scoring Gant.
The Sharks rapped the ball
Tuesday, but could not put
their hits into bunches in order
to score runs.
Tim Beard led the pack with
three hits; Ashley Abrams
had two safeties and Blane
Cox, Freddie Woullard, Ron-
ald Miller and Tim Stutzman
all had one hit each.
This afternoon, the Sharks
will host the Wewahitchka
Gators at 1:00 p.m.'
Friday, the Sharks will
make up a rained out game
with Wakulla in Wakulla at
7:30 p.m.
Tuesday of next week will be
a day of baseball here in Port
St. Joe. At 10:30 a.m., the
Sharks will host Owensboro,
Ky. At 1:00 p.m., Florida High
will meet Bowling Green, Ky.


Florida High will then play
Owensboro at 3:30. The
Sharks will take the field
again at 6:00 against Bowling
Green and then end the day
with Florida High at 8:00 p.m.

Hutto Scores A Point


It did not take Congressman
Earl Hutto of Florida's First
Congressional District long to
find out the importance of
being on the House Armed
Services Committee.
Hutto, who was recently
elected to serve on the com-


mittee, walked away from his
first meeting with the power-
ful group with a major vic-
tory. "Within minutes of that
first meeting as a member of
the Armed Services Commit-
tee I found myself engaged in
a big battle, but thankfully I


was able to come out a
winner", said Hutto.
The fight was between Hutto
and Congressman William
Dickinson (R-Ala) over Dick-
inson's attempt to delete $33.6
million dollars which Hutto
and others had placed in the

defense authorization, bill
when it was approved in
subcommittee the previous
week. The funds will be used
to buy fixed wing training
aircraft and helicopters for
use in the Navy's primary
flight training program at
Whiting Field ner Milton.
Hutto attributes his winning


committee vote in large mea-
sure to his victory on the floor
last September when the
House voted overwhelmingly
against consolidating the
Navy program at Whiting with
the Army program in Dickin-
son's District at Fort Rucker.
It was the first time the House


had voted against consolida-
tion after voting the other way
in previous years when the
merger had been stopped by
the Senate.
"There is no doubt our turn
around last fall helped us
preserve this funding", stated
Hutto.


A Nice Catch


Bill Rich and his son-in-law,
Don Ashcraft, came home
after a fishing trip to Lake
Wimico last week with this

fishermen wouldn't say where

for bait. They're secretive
about these things.

your own transplants or buy
them at a garden center you'll
be several weeks ahead of
gardeners who start with
seeds.
Using transplants allows
you to choose only the best
plants. If you're raising trans-
plants in your own seedbed,
you'll have many more plants
than you really need. If you're
buying transplants at a gar-
den center, you can pick the
best from what is available.
Either way, you can select the
.strongest and healthiest plants
for your garden.
It's easier to start from
transplants-If you only want
a few plants. For something
like a window-box garden, or a
very small garden patch, us-
ing transplants is much more
practical than starting from
seed.
The main disadvantage in
using transplants is that the
cost would mount up quickly if
you bought plants for a large
garden. Also, some crops are
hard to transplant success-
fully. For example, beans,
corn, cucumbers and turnips
do better if they're started
from seed planted directly in
the garden.

they should be ready to plant
when they're four to six weeks
old. Transplants you buy at a
garden center usually are
ready to set out immediately.
When transplanting, avoid dis-
turbing the roots. Before re-
moving seedlings from flats,
block out the soil by cutting it
into squares. If the seedlings
are in individual containers,
moisten the soil before remov-
ing them. Some transplants
are grown in peat pellets.
These are inserted directly
into the soil.
The Ieist times to transplant
are: Right after a rain, when
it's cloudy, or in the late after-
noon. Handle the plants gent-
ly, and make sure you don't
press the soil too tightly
around the roots. After you set
each plant, carefully pour a
little water into the hole to
settle the soil around the roots.
Then, cover the wet area with
dry soil to reduce evaporation.
To help transplants to get off
to a quick start, apply a start-
er fertilizer solution. You can
buy these ready mixed, or you
can make your own, just mix
one or two tablespoons of 8-8-8
fertilizer in a gallon of water.
An even better solution can be
made with a high phosphate
fertilizer, such as a 10-50-10
mixed at the same rate-one

,Jax Building Named for Ed Ball


Jacksonville now has its
Edward Ball Building. John
H. Manry, Jr., President and
Chief Executive Officer of
Florida National Banks of
Florida, Inc., announced this
week that the firm's head-
quarters building has been re-
named the Edward Ball Build-
ing to coincide with and cele-
brate Mr. Ball's 92nd birth-
day (March 21st). This action
salutes and recognizes the fi-
nancier's great contribution to
Florida National.
The building which occupies
the entire block between
Adams and Monroe Streets
and Julie and Hogan streets in
downtown Jacksonville, has
been known as the Florida
First National Bank Building.


The Florida First National
Bank of Jacksonville occupied
the building on December 11,
1961 after out-growing its
quarters on Forsyth street.
The $545 million bank is the
lead bank of the statewide
multi-bank holding company.
"The names Edward Ball
and Florida National have
been used synonymously by
corporate executives, small
town men of commerce, farm-
ers and cattlemen. He has
been friend and financial ad-
visor to men from all walks of
life for many decades, and has
given counsel to leaders in
government. Mr. Ball is a
great champion of the free
enterprise system and his con-


servatism molded the modern
philosophy of Florida Nation-
al Banks. To name this
building the Edward Ball
Building is to engrave :iat
philosophy into the marble
and into the sinew of every
'employee of this great com-
pany," said Manry.


A bronze plaque will com-
memorate the occasion and
signs displaying the build-
ing's new identity will be
placed at the bank's en-
trances. The plaque will dis-
play the cast profile of Ed-
ward Ball along with the fol-
lowing quote representative of


Ball's lifelong commitment to
the free enterprise system:
"The right to work, and to
acquire your own property
and keep it, is our greatest
birthright. If we lose this, or if
it becomes meaningless, truly
we have been destroyed from
within."

Biting the Bullet


The drive to have a
balanced budget this year is
moving steadily along. There
is no question that we will
find a way to do so for the
current budget and, rest
assured, the medicine will not
be very palatable to any of
us.
Only a few months ago
the Carter Administration
proposed a budget with a $15
billion deficit. Now even the
President is reconsidering this
proposed budget in light of
the current inflation rate of
18 percent. While balancing
the budget will have only a
very slight impact upon the
overall inflation rate, the
signal will have been sent that
the federal government is
serious about halting the
reckless spending spree we
have been in for too many
years.
Exactly how this balanced
budget, and the cutbacks in-
herent therein, will affect us
in Northwest Florida has not
yet been established. We do
know that some areas of
( federal aid are on the cholp-
' ping block. For example,
general revenue sharing to the
states (Florida's share is $71
million) is probably going to
be terminated. The state uses
this money for education and
the loss of it will require the
state to look to other internal
funding sources. Revenue
sharing for local areas, coun-
ties and cities, is also being
studied for cuts. Since the

funds for a wide variety of
service areas, each of us may
face a cutback in services pro-
vided by local governments.

Innovative?
So, you like to be innova-
tive. How can you get away
from the wall-to-wall look in
carpet? One way is to select a
pattern carpet for the main
portion of the room, and have
the installer put a small
tnatching, or contrasting bor-
der around the entire carpet.
i Another way to achieve the
(different look is to select a car-
pet, and then have the install-
ter add fringe, and presto.
/.you have a custom rug. Or,
4 custom rugs are available

dinosaurs, and programs for
youth and young adult
employment are up for ter-
mination. Furthermore, Law
Enforcement Assistance Ad-
ministration grant programs
will also be reduced or ter-
minated. Though the LEAA
has been subject to con-
troversy over the years,
almost all local police agen-
cies depend on it for funding
of local services.
The list of reductions and
eliminations goes on and on
and I won't bore you with the
details. Before all is over, you
will hear and read a great deal
about the pros and cons of
each move. Many wasteful
programs will go, but also
many beneficial programs
will take a beating. If we real-
ly want to balance the budget
and reduce inflation, it will
take sacrifice from each of
us. Let us try to work
together in a spirit of
cooperation and understand-
ing.

Armed Services Committee ..
I am happy to announce
that I was recently elected to
fill an opening on the House
Armed Services Committee.
The selection to sit on this
committee will enable me to
work even more closely with
the-military services and the
Department of Defense to
keep the United States the
top; military power in the
world. Membership on this
committee will also help me
to better represent the in-
terests of Northwest Florida
in the Congress.
My special thanks to each
bf you for your support and
warm notes of congratula-
tions.

Liver Deluxe
Nancy's recipe for this
week was submitted by
former President Gerald
Ford.
1 lb. liver, sliced thin
2 cups brown gravy
sprinkle of parsley
dash of salt, pepper
1 large onion, sliced thin
8 pcs. bacon, fried crisp
Vz cup flour
2 Tbsp. butter
Melt butter in skillet and
saute onion. Dredge slices of
liver in flour and brown each
side. Pour gravy on liver and
season with parsley, salt and
pepper to taste. Simmer for 2
minutes and arrange on a
serving platter. Place bacon
on top of liver. Serves 4.


John Manry, Jr., President and Chief
Executive Officer of Florida National Banks
of Florida, Inc., congratulates Edward Ball.
The Jacksonville bank of the $2.1 billion


holding company has changed the name of
its building to the Edward Ball Building in
honor of Mr. Ball's 92nd birthday.


Change In Store This


Fall for Deer Hunters


There is a change in store
for deer hunters this fall
according to action taken
Friday by the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion.
In its meeting in Orlando,
the Commission approved in
principle a move to remove
the five-inch antler restriction
on legal buck deer. In its place
is a requirement that a legal
buck have antlers visible
above the hairline.
The change, presented to
the public during 17 meetings
conducted around the state,
had been met with support
from hunters and had come
from a recommendation from
the Division of Wildlife staff.
Other changes include a
later and longer archery sea-
son shortened by one week
running from November 8 to
March 1.
The general hunting season
will open statewide on Novem-
ber 8 and close on January 4,
except for Northwest Florida-
which will close on January
25.
For the first time, there will
be a muzzleloading season for
all five regions of the state.
All regions will open on
October 24 and close on
October 26 with the exception


Safety

Stressed

By FHP
The Traffic Safety Educa-
tion Section of the Florida
Highway Patrol gave safety
talks to 303,511 people during
1979 it was announced today.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "We are
convinced that traffic safety
education is an important and
necessary part of our overall
traffic safety program."
The 17 Troop Safety Officers
showed 4,716 safety films to
219,875 people. They also
appeared on 557 television and
1,217 radio programs. In ad-
dition, thousands of their TV
and radio safety spots were
broadcast as a result of
outstanding cooperation by
the electronic media.
Many of the states newspap-
ers do an excellent job of
assisting the patrol with the
traffic safety program
through their own excellent
articles and by printing the
patrol news release.
The Safety Officers teach
defensive driving to interested
groups as well as work closely
with schools in their bicycle
and pedestrian safety pro-
grams. In addition to their
safety education duties, the
Safety Officers handle routine
patrol duties such as making
arrests and investigating traf-
fic accidents and are on call 24
hours a day.
Colonel Beach concluded by
saying, "We appreciate all of
the help we have received
during the past year, however,
with over 2,600 people dying on
our highways each, year, we
still need more help to lower
this tragic toll of human
lives."

lations was made at the
meeting with final adoption
set for the Commission's April
meeting in Tallahassee.

tract was first utilized by
Florida hunters this past year

surrounding the oyster indus-
try.
After discussion, Commis-
sioner Gortman moved the

Kennedy seconded the motion,
and it passed unanimously.
The Resolution 80-5 is filed

Methodist Church, opened the
meeting with prayer, followed
by the pledge to the flag.
The minutes of February 12
and 14, 1980, were read,
corrected and approved. The
correction was the following:
Page 184, line 9, as to a motion
by Commissioner Branch. The
correction was: "Commis-
sioner Branch moved to let
contracts for first phases of
construction as soon as the
bids are received but that if
the bids are over the estimate,
the Industrial Road will be
held over to the second phase
of construction."
Mr. Oscar Redd, Wewa-
hitchka Ambulance Chief,
asked if anything has been
done about the malfunctioning
ambulance. The attorney re-
ported he is negotiating with
.he State Department of Gen-
meral Services, the agency that
-purchased the ambulance,
'with General Motors, and with
'Superior Sales, but that an
agreement between the part-
ies has not been reached at
:his time. Mr. Redd told the
:Board that Ken McClellan of
'-General Motors called him
'today and instructed him to
take the vehicle to Tommy
:Thomas Chevrolet and he
asked if he should do this. The
tChairman instructed him not
to take it to Tommy Thomas
Chevrolet at this time. Com-
missioner Gortman moved,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, and unanimously
carried, that if a satisfactory
agreement has not been
reached by March 1,1980, that
litigation commence. The at-
torney said that he is ready to
file suit, butisdoing all he can
to solve this problem before
going to court.
Mr. Redd then questioned
the Board as to an agreement
between the County and the
City of Wewahitchka, wherein
the City had agreed to hold
training classes for the ambu-
lance crew and that the
County would pay the City
$100.00 per month for this
service. The Chairman said
this has been agreed to, except
that a contract has not been
signed.
Mr. Redd asked if he should
pursuthe te possibility of hav-
ing a two-way radio system
installed in the ambulances.
The Chairman said to get all
information as to costs and
available matching funds.
The White City Fire Depart-
ment discussed the need for
new tires. The Board instruct-
ed the Chief to purchase the
tires.
The Attorney read a pro-
posed ordinance dealing with
disposing of radio-active ma-
terials. There was motion by
Commissioner Kennedy,
seconded by Commissioner
Branch, and it was unani-
mously carried, to advertise
for a public hearing to be held
March 25, 1980, at 7:00 p.m.,
on the question of whether or
not the ordinance should be
The Board having adver-
tised to receive sealed bids to
sell the County one used
Tandem Dump Trailer, te
following bids were received:
Frudehauf Corporation of-
fered one 1978 Fruehauf, 27


yard capacity trailer at
14,50.00. Also, one 1973 City
24.& yard capacity trailer at


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 1980


$10,000.00.
C. R. Smith & Son offered
one 1966 Fruehauf, 25 yard
capacity at $7,000.00, the hy-
draulic cylinder needs repair.
ing and Smith said he will
repair and sell at $7,700.90, or
will replace the cylinder at
$8,250.00.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Branch,
seconded by Commissioner
Tankersley, and it was unani-
mously carried, to purchase
the unit offered by C. R. Smith
& Son at $7,000.00, providing
it met the approval of the
Road Superintendent and
Commission and in the event
this unit did not meet their
approval, to purchase the 1973
trailer from Fruehauf at
$10,000.00, providing this unit
met the approval above men-
tioned.
The Department of Trans-
portation notified the Board
that the Overstreet Bridge will
be closed beginning at 10:00
a.m., March 4, 1980 and will
remain closed for two weeks.
Commissioner Branch, in an
effort to have the bridge open
on March 11,1980, which is the
Presidential Preference Pri-
mary Election date, called the
Department of Transportation
requesting that the bridge be
open to traffic on March 11,
that the Department of Trans-
portation said the floating
bridge will be out of the water
and in dry dock on that date,
but that the Department of
Transportation will have a
boat to transfer all voters
across the canal and will have
a vehicle to transfer them to
and from the polling place.
The Chairman said the County
Road Department will keep
the two County dirt roads
between Overstreet and SR71
in good driving condition
during this time because the
people living on the north side
of the canal can drive to Port
St. Joe without having to go by
way of Wewahitchka.
The mosquito Control Super-
visor reported that his drag-
line was vandalized while
parked on the Glidden Road
between February 19th and
20th. He filed a copy of the
Sheriff's Incident Report.
The Board entered into an
agreement with the Panhand-
le Alcoholism Council, where-
in they provide alcoholism
treatment services for Gulf
County citizens for the consid-
eration of $1,500.00 for the
1979-80 Fiscal Year.
The Board received a letter
from Catherine Ramsey, Port
St. Joe Ambulance Squad
Chief, informing the County of
certain problems concerning
certain types of emergencies,
causing the volunteers un-
necessary uses and abuses.
She said that one case ase in mind
was where a woman in labor,
expecting childbirth any
minute, called for a midnight
ride to a Panama City Hospit-
al. She stated certain steps to
be set as policy which will
correct this.
The attorney reported that
he has been unable to contact
Mr. David Van to discuss the
Douglas Landing Road prob-
lem, but that he hopes talk
to him before the next meet-
ing.
Commissioner Gortman
asked about the bond issue
funds, the amount to be avail-
able for construction. Mr.
Tommy Pitss said that $2,126,-
000 will be available from the
bond issue, plus $250,000 in the
bank at this time. He said that
Projects No. 1 through 19 are
estimated to cost $2,260,000,
leaving a balance of about
$120,000.
The Board entered into a
lengthy discussion as to the
road priorities. In discussing
the Stokes County Road (also
known as the Dill Road),
Commissioner Gortman said
the present plan calls for this
road to terminate at the sub-
division, but that it should
terminate at the south end of
the subdivision and he made a
motion to that effect. Motion
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy. Vote: Aye Gort-
man and Kennedy. Nay -
Branch, Tankersley, and
Birmingham.
Mr. Tommy Pitts presented
the following items:
He recommended the ap-
proval of an application for a
permit by the St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph
Company to install a cable on
County Road C-30, near Cape
San Blas. By motion of
Commissioner Branch,
seconded by Commissioner
Tankersley, and unanimous
vote, this permit was issued.
He informed the Board that
maintenance work on the Ottis
Smith ditch has heretofore


been approved, but that it was
held up because Mr. Smith


requested the County to -e-
lease the ditch to him. He
asked if this question had been
resolved and if he should go
ahead with the maintenance.
The Board instructed him to
proceed with the work.
He reported that the Road
Department has been assign-
ed two new Ceta positions and
that his Mosquito Control
Department has received one
new position.
He discussed instructions
from the Board for him to
check on street names in
White City; to name those not
named, and then secure street
signs and have them installed.
He said this has been held up
because one Commissioner
thought the Board should
select the names for the
streets. He presented a draw-
ing showing all streets in
White City and suggested
names for the unnamed stre-
ets. The Board agreed on
Street names and instructed
Mr. Pitts to see that the signs
are properly installed.
Commissioner Tankersley
told the Board Howard Rogers
has requested the name of his
street in Highland View be
changed. Commissioner
Branch said the street sign as
erected, showing it to be North
Park, has been corrected to
show the correct name of
North Parker. Uon motin by
Commissioner Branch,
seconded by Commissioner
Gortman, and unanimously
carried, the following two right
of way deeds were accepted:
1. George T. Danley, et als.
for 30 feet drainage ditch in
S20, T5S, R9W. Recorded in 0.
R. Book 80, Page 779.
2. Otis Davis, Jr., et ux, for a
30 feet drainage ditch in S22,
T4S, R1OW.recorded in 0. R.
Book 80, Page 777.
The Sheriff reminded the
Board that summer time is
just around the corner and-
nothing has been done about
air conditioning in his office.
The Board said the manu-
facturer will be contacted and
requested to determine why
his office is not being cooled
by the system.
The Sheriff told the Board
that he is in need of a
sub-station in the north end of
the County to be used as the
Civil Defense and Law En-
forcement Operating Center
in case of an evacuation of
Port St. Joe. He said the cell
block area of the old jail in
Wewahitchka would be an
ideal place for such a center.
After discussion, there was a
motion by Commissioner
Branch, seconded by Commis-
sioner Kennedy, and it was
unanimously carried, that the
Architect take a look at the old
cell block and give the Board
and estimate on the cost of
renovating this area of the
building.
Commissioner Goartman
discussed the need for fire
extinguishers in every County
building, as prescribed by
the Fire Marshall. The Chair-
man asked Commissioner
Gortman to attend to this
matter.
Commissioner Gortman
suggested that the County
Personnel Policy be placed on
