Candidate
Joyce Williams, assistant
Property Appraiser in the
office of retiring Samuel A.
Patrick, announced this week
she will seek the office of
Property Appraiser in .Gulf
County in the fall elections.
Mrs. Williams has been
employed with Mr. Patrick
since 1967, "giving me 13
years of on the job exper-
ience."
She feels this is one of the
things which makes her quali-
fied for the position.
Mrs. Williams is a member
of the Property Appraisers

International Association of

The Gulf County Commis-
sion bowed to pressure from
employees of the Road and
Mosquito Control Depart-
ments Tuesday and granted a
seven percent wage increase
in the middle of a budget year.
A delegation from the two
departments had approached
the Commission two weeks
ago and asked for at least a
seven percent cost of living
raise in the middle of the
budget, year, something the
Board had never done before.
In a unanimous decision
Tuesday afternoon, the Com-
mission approved the seven
percent increase, after giving
the same employees seven
percent pay increase at the
beginning of the budget year
back in October.
In making their pitch for the
increase in pay two weeks
ago, the delegation cited the
continued increase in the
climb in inflation as having a
disastrous effect on the em-
ployees and their families.
The increase in pay will cost
the county approximately
$14,075 for the remainder of
the current budget year.
There were no suggestions as
to where the money for the
pay increase would come
from, but Clerk George Core
said the money might be taken
from the contingency fund of
$20,000 in the Road and Bridge


Fund budget.
Charlie Presley, Courthouse
custodian, was also granted
the seven percent increase in
pay.
PULL IT UP!
Commission chairman Doug
Birmingham appointed Com-
missioner Jimmy Gortman
Tuesday, to find out "who can
give the Board the authority to
pull the Dead Lakes Dam up
by its roots and quit collecting
fishing permits for Dead
Lakes."
Birmingham may have been
serious and he may not have
been, but Gortman was duly
appointed to pursue the mat-
ter, and it is likely he will.
One little problem faces
Gortman, other than getting
permission and finding a
crane large enough to lift the
dam. The Dead Lakes Water
Management District, still
owes some $80,000 on the dam
and this money is pledged to
be repaid by revenue from the
fishing permits.
WATER AND SEWER
The Commission seems to
be interested in getting deeper
into the water and sewer
business, after being success-
ful in securing a district for
Oak Grove.
The Board has been dicker-
ing with an engineer to come

The DNR has filed what it titles the

Of primary interest and probably chagrin for
the sportsmen and bee keepers of the area were the
stipulations outlined in the plan which stated all the

action would severely limit access to the favorite

which are raised by the logging operators.

allowed within the aquatic preserve (Apalachicola

Chairman Doug Birmingham immediately

and Franklin counties to join in opposing the latest
announcement by DNR.
In addition, Birmingham asked attorney
William J. Rish to set up a meeting with members of
DNR, to make the opposition of the county
personally known to them.
The DNR may have promised to leave the area
open to sportsmen and bee keepers, but it looks as if
it may take a real knock-down drag-out to make
DNR live up to their promise.

New Industry On Gulf Canal


Raffield's Will Build

Fiberglas Shrimp Boats
A new industry is breaking ground on the banks of the
Gulf County Canal at Highland View.
Land clearing operations started this week to construct a
300' by 70' metal building in which to construct shrimp boats
here in south Gulf County.
For the past year and half, Raffield Fisheries has been at
work making a pattern mold from which to cast shrimp boat
hulls. The mold has been under construction on the Raffield
property beside the highway, where everyone could see the
painfully slow progress in preparing the mold and getting it
perfect.
Gene Raffield, manager of Raffields' said the firm will
move into the building some time late in the year and set up
an assembly line which will spit out 62' x 24' fiberglas shrimp
boat hulls at the pace of one about every 17 to 20 days, when
they get into full operation.
Raffield said the first boat should come off the assembly
line in about October or November of this year.
The firm will sell the boats as finished units, ready for
operation or they will sell only the hulls or finished to any
degree desired by the customer.
The boat pattern prepared here will have a fish holding
capacity of about 150,000 pounds and will cost in the range of
$250,000 to $300,000 for a finished boat.
Raffield didn't say how many people the new industry
would employ. This will probably be determined by how the
new boats sell.

Whitfield Says He'll Run


KENNETH WHITFIELD


Kenneth Whitfield, a native
of Gulf County, said this week
he would be a candidate for
the office of Property Ap-
praiser in the fall primaries.
Whitfield has served on the
Gulf County School Board for
the past 22 years, winning
re-election many times with
no opposition. During his
tenure on the School Board he
has served as chairman for
several terms.
Whitfield has served as an
acting city clerk for the city of
Wewahitchka for two years,


been employed by the Wewa-
hitchka State Bank for 26
years and served in many
civic and business activities
throughout the County.
Whitfield is married and he
and his wife, Marlene, have
four children.
The prospective candidate
says his past experience .has
educated him in the land and
property values of Gulf Coun-
ty as well as given him an
intimate knowledge of county
geography.


Six Inches

If you have been hibernating for the winter and just came
out of your cave, you probably didn't know we have been
having a lot of rain lately.
As a matter of fact, the Port St. Joe area has had six
inches of rainfall since April 2 through Tuesday night of this
week.
It may have seemed like more, but even this was a
record.
According to records kept by the late Bill Simmons, the
Port St. Joe area had six inches of rainfall over the same
period of time in 1975, when the precipitation level hit a 15
year record.
The first week of April this year was just a little wetter
than last year, when 4.4 inches were recorded in the same
period of time.

it's Time for Us to Join Mother Nature In Cleaning Up


Mother Nature has started her part of
cleaning up the debris left after the bleak
weather of winter.
She has wound up her wind to sweep the
area clean, blowing away the dead foliage,
wiping up the fields and vacuuming the streets
of leaves, sticks, dead vegetation and other
cast-offs of the winter sleep.
Now, the rains are with us, washing up
and flushing away the last crumbs of an old
year, getting ready for a new growing season.
Along with the cleaning action comes a
thorough watering of new growth to give it a
fresh start in the prime growing season.
It is up to us now, to follow the example of
Mother Nature and clean up the mess we have
made during the winter months and make
ready for the new season; making way for a
new accumulation of the debris of living for
another year.'
It's time for us to clean-up, paint-up and
fix-up, to match Mother Nature in her annual
spring house cleaning binge.
It's time to dig out from under the winter
cover, toss aside the trappings of cold
weather, fold up the blankets and get out the


fans. It's time to switch from hot water to cool.
It's time to lay out the light weight clothing
and put the coats in mothballs. It's time to
think "outside" and close up the damper on
the fireplace.
In short, it's time to prepare the outdoors -
for outdoors living and this takes a thorough
cleaning, polishing and painting.
Mother Nature will not do this for us.
She'll take care of the fields, the woods,- the


wild things, but it is up to us to look after our
living areas.
This is the day of the paint brush, the mop,
the broom, the rake, the shears, and the
throw-away trash bags.
Your City is urging you to take up this
challenge of Mother Nature to give her a
helping hand and make our city one of beauty,
your yard a pleasant place in which to be and
your home pleasing to the eye.


The effects of our surroundings on our
sight are tremendous. Merchandisers use
visual stimuli more to sell products than any
other of our natural senses. If our surround-
ings are pleasing to the eye, we will have more
pride in our home, our neighborhood and our
town.
Let's all join in this month and make Port
St. Joe and Gulf County the nice place to live it
can be with just a little effort.


State 's Surplus May Not Last too Long


It's too late to do anything about it now,
but we are fearful that the recent vote giving a
$25,000 property tax exemption on school
taxes, is going to cause considerable problems
with our school financing.
For the time being, the State of Florida
can handle the matter. They will probably
demand more input to our local school
operation with the provision of more funds,
but at least they can fund the necessities of
school operation.


But what about the very near future?
In announcing his budget economies to
balance and even cause a small surplus in the
federal budget, President Carter has an-
nounced that one of his budget economies will
be a reduction of federal money going to state
school systems.
Any reduction of school income anywhere,
will mean a reduction in available money for
school operation here in Port St. Joe, in
Wewahitchka and in Highland View. It's


inevitable.
Since federal contribution to local school
operation is considerable, we can all expect a
short-fall in money for this purpose, probably
beginning with the next school year.
With the reduction from the local effort,
from increased property exemptions and a
reduced federal contribution, it may just put
more of a strain on the state finances than
they can comfortably bear.

there is more to Christianity

be so very simple that all our

are born again. But God's

It's heard to tell at this point
what will be the eventual
outcome. But, it is my person-
al belief that we do not need
any more new taxes and I will
definitely te working to keep
any new form of taxation from
passing in the House.
I am of the firm opinion that
the state, as well as the
federal government should
spend more wisely what is
available, rather than looking
at more ways to get more
money.

when we "lose" the joy of

light" or "be glad."
As children of God we, as
Christians, must ever be
mindful of how He handles us
and handle our families in a
like manner. (For a guide to
how we are to love read the
13th Chapter of I Corinthians.)
Be knowledgeable of one
thing, God's Spirit is for Good
and Satan's spirit is for evil
and that everything concern-

Why Do Washing Machines Eat Only A Half Pair of New Socks?


: THERE MUST BE something
:about a half pair of socks a washing
machine just cannot resist.
It has been my experience that a
new pair of socks doesn't stand but
:about a 30 percent chance of going
through a washing machine without
half the new pair disappearing.
: Why is that? Does a new pair of
:socks (or half a new pair) taste good to
Ia washing machine?
Our washing machine had deci-
mated my sock supply to the point
:where I had one blue pair and a brown
pair which I could call a reasonably
-good pair of socks left in my sock
:drawer.
- Along with the blue pair and the
brown pair of reasonably good socks I
:had two pairs of blue ones with a small
hole in the toe, one pair of blue ones
with a hole in the heel of one, a near
match pair of brown ones and a pair
which were about three shades of green
removed from one another.
S If I had been able to count the
singles which would match nothing, I
iould have been well supplied in socks.
At times, the one good blue pair, the
. --.


blue ones with the hole in the toe and
heel and the near match browns were
all in the wash. Then, I had to revert to
picking out just two socks and putting
them on, without regard to the color or




ETAOIIt





pattern. They covered my feet and I
just picked out a pair of britches which
were too long to cover up the sox and
nobody was the wiser.
This sock situation rocked on, with
holidays and birthdays passing and no
socks were received as presents. This
meant I had to resort to taking time off
to go downtown to replenish the
unmatched sock supply.


I did it about three weeks ago. I
picked out two green pair, two blue pair
and two brown pair to go along with an
odd pair of wine color socks I just
happened to like the looks of.

. '.. * .' ..




. :W. y R. Ron
S . . .:: . - . .


I still have three pair of the new
ones I haven't worn as yet and one full
pair of the new ones I have worn.
The washing machine has already
picked off one sock each in each of the
other pairs.
I think I'll just take to painting my
feet and lower legs and let it go at that.

MOUNT ST. HELENE is in the


process of blowing its top out in
Washington. For the past several weeks
now, the volcano has been spitting
smoke, rocks and dirt into the air. The
word is that the volcano is expected to






nsev


erupt with molten lava in the very near
future.
That's all part of nature causing the
earth to grow and mature.
I wonder it Mt. St. Helene has a
permit from the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency to put its effluent into
the air. From what I read, Mt. St.
Helene has already put more pollutants
into the air, damaging the atmosphere
more than all of the activities of


mankind will for the next 100 years.
Mt. St. Helene did this all by itself.
Just imagine all the other acts of
nature which have compounded the
ecological sin of Mt. St. Helene.
I look any day now for the EPA to
converge on Mt. St. Helene, slap it with
an air pollution violation, take it to
court and fine it $10,000 a day until
scrubbers are put on its cone to screen
out all the polluting particles it is
belching into the air.
What's fair for U.S. Steel is fair for
Mt. St. Helene.
I'm concerned about the ecology of
the earth, but I can't get overly excited
about man's puny efforts when I see the
volume by which nature dirties up our
back yard.
WITH THE NEW tax on oil
imports, aired at gasoline, approved by
President Carter last week, we have all
been warned that gasoline is going up to
at least $1.35 a gallon by the end of next
month.
With that warning, you can bet it
will be there, or higher.
President Carter has said the tax is


to encourage the American people to
Ulse less gasoline by causing them to cut
back due to the cost.
I don't agree with President
Carter's latest move. The American
people have already reduced their
gasoline consumption by 10 percent
over a period of a year. That's about the
same rate asinflation causing prices to
go up, at least previous to the current
year.
Americans didn't get into the
position of using so much gasoline over
night, and they shouldn't be expected to
cut back to a given point over night.
I think the American public is
demonstrating it is willing to cut back
on energy consumption and putting
their concern over energy matters far
higher in priority than the government
is. The government is certainly doing
us no favor by trying to force us,
through economics, into doing some-
thing we are doing voluntarily.
In our fight against inflation, which
is equally as important as our energy
conservation battle, we hardly need
another price increase, from whatever
source.

The day of tax reckoning
is about to arrive. April 15,
1980 is the deadline for filing
your 1979 income tax returns
and Uncle Sam takes little
pity on those who file late. In
fact, any return postmarked
after the deadline of mid-
night, April 15th, will be
deemed late and any addi-
tional taxes owed will be
higher because of penalty and
interest which would be add-
ed. ,
If you have been holding
back on completing your tax
form because you heard or
read that the Congress was
considering changes to the
tax laws, DON'T. Any
changes that the Congress
may now be considering to
the tax laws will only become
effective for 1980 and future
years. None of the proposed
. changes will impact your
W 1979 returns.
Remember, also, that,the
Internal Revenue Service is
available to answer your tax
questions. Call upon them if
you have a question so that a
simple, honest mistake will
not end up costing you dearly
in a future IRS audit. The.
number in F16rida is
1-800-342-8300.
As an aside, I have heard
of more and more people en-
joying the last moments
awaiting the midnight dead-
line at the local post office.
Reports from last year
included postal facilities
crammed with people sing-
ing, dancing, and generally
enjoying their final moments
with their money before send-
ing it on to Uncle Sam. I am
not suggesting this as a way
to tie up the local post office.
. .only as a way to maintain
your sense of humor at a not-
so-humorous time.
Impact Aid
Many ot you are aware
that our local school districts
are provided funds from the
federal government to help
pay for the students added to
local districts due to the loca-
tion of federal facilities.
While the dollar figure has
changed considerably over
the years, the districts have
come to depend greatly on
these funds for staffing,
books, etc.
During the past few years,
Administrations have tried to
reduce these funds. Each year
the Congress has felt that the
local areas deserved and
needed these funds and have
restored them to the budget.
Again this year the Ad-
ministration has reduced the
request. For the State of
Florida, the total FY 1981 re-
quest is less than $2.5 million
- a reduction of nearly $19
million from FY 1980. For
the First District of Florida,
the FY 1981 total request is
only $1.8 million, a reduction
of almost $5.3 million from
FY 1980.
While I am working
diligently to restore these
funds, the situation this year
is different than in previous

years and the fight will be
harder. As it now stands the
Administration request is as

Drug Raids Are Drying Up Supply Sources In Five Counties


According to State Attorney
Leo C. Jones pot smokers and
pill poppers are finding usual
supply sources drying up now
that a total of 30 peddlars have
been apprehended since his
five-county series of drug
raids was kicked off late last
month.
The mopping up action will
continue, Jones said, until the
remaining dealers are jailed
or they are definitely known to
'have fled., Fugitive warrants
will be issued for those who
skip out, he said.
The pressure is going to stay
on illegal drug dealers, Jones
said. "We can't let up because
in a few months some other
dude will get the idea, and if
he gets moving, a second will
move in, and a third, and
you'll have it all over again."
the veteran prosecutor ex-
plained.
The only clear-cut pattern
emerging from the months-
long investigation is that
.marijuana smokers are start-
ing earlier. "A year or so ago
we were finding 18 or 19
year-olds buying marijuana,
now it's kids in junior high
school," Jones said. This
explains, he said, the em-
phasis put on the dealers "who
are using our children."
During the investigation
Jones' agents discovered that
marijuana then was selling for
about $400 a pound. "It is
probably higher now since the


To Suit The Occasion


Just because ambrosia was the name given to the food and
drink of the mythological gods doesn't mean it's excluded
from man's enjoyment. This refreshing Coconut Ambrosia
Continental looks elaborate but is simple to prepare by layering
flaked coconut with oranges, bananas and chunk pineapple.
Build the celebration around this light ambrosia served with
sparkling champagne and delicate sandwiches prepared with a
variety of fillings and breads, such as thin slices of ham, turkey
and cheese on pumpernickel, white bread rounds or rye squares.
Use a contemporary design glass serving bowl to show off
layered flaked coconut and fruits.
Coconut Ambrosia Continental
6 oranges, sectioned 2 cans (8-1/4 oz. each)
4 medium bananas, sliced chunk pineapple in
syrup, drained
2 cups Baker's Angel Flake coconut
Layer half of the oranges, bananas, pineapple and coconut
in serving bowl; repeat layers. Garnish with additional orange
sections, if desired. Chill. Makes 8 cups or 12 servings.

availability has been re-
duced," Jones theorized. He
said that most marijuana
available locally is imported
as last year's home-grown
crop has been used up. Higher
prices will "hopefully cut
down on use," Jones added.
The pill scene is charac-
terized as "wild" by Jones
who said that valium, a
favorite of narcotics users, is
selling for more than 10 times
the prescription price in a
drug store. On the street five-
milligram valium pills sell for
one dollar, and the 10-milli-
gram ,valiums go for three
dollars each.
Amphetamines, equally as
popular, "pose a greater
threat than valium, particu-
larly to younger users," ac-
cording to Jones. He explained
.that many of the ampheta-
mines his investigators found
were "home made" in what he
called "clandestine laborator-
ies." There are no assurances
either of cleanliness or
strength consistency in these,
he said. No fly-by-night lab-
oratories in the. Circuit were
located by investigators and it
is believed that they are
located elsewhere.
Investigators said they were
told that such labs were
located in Birmingham, Ala-
bama, and Atlanta, Georgia.
Jones discounted this as the
dealers are likely to conceal
their sources to prevent
competition.
Jones said that quaaludes,
barbiturates and valium are
manufactured by pharma-
ceutical houses and that the
street supply had been stolen.
Drug store robberies in this
circuit have dropped off in the
last few years, but this type
robbery nets much of the
illegal narcotic supply.
One of the problems in
rounding up all of the 44 drug
dealers charged is the almost
constant movement of most.
While he said no identifiable
patterns surfaced, area drug
dealers are highly mobile.
"Many sales are made from
vehicles,' Jones explained.
Other dealers prefer to fre-
quent entertainment estab-
lishments where potential
customers are known to con-
gregate. Then, there are still
others who will traffic in drugs
from their homes.
"Man, I've been riding for
two days looking for a joint,"
one marijuana smoker confid-
ed to an undercover agent fol-
lowing the initial raids. This,
Jones said, points up the
mobility of suppliers and the
scarcity of pot following those
raids.
Drug dealing from homes is
potentially dangerous to the
peddlars in that neighbors
likely will alert officers if
unusually heavy vehicle traf-
fic develops. Undercover a-
gents did locate "a few houses
and mobile homes used in
drug dealing," Jones said. The
problem with this is that after
such a location is identified,
the next time an agent goes
there he finds a 'for rent'
sign." Jones explained.


For unexplained reasons,
the prosecutor noted, most
dealers are men, and the most
successful are 25 years old or
older. Most all appeared to be


independent operators. Many
affected flashy clothing, lean-
ing heavily to the now popular
western fashions. A number
sported high-priced pick-up


trucks and expensive auto-
mobiles.
Some of the not so successful
dealers sold drugs to bolster
incomes from fulltime jobs. At


least one longtime State em-
ployee was hauled in during
the first series of raids.
Jones said he was "delight-
ed that so many dealers have


been put out of business." He
said that his office will "spend
months following up on leads
developed during this intens-
ive investigation."

Students Construct Registration Stand


for Old St. Joseph Cemetery Gazebo


For some time it has been a
real problem to keep a guest
book in the gazebo in the old
St. Joseph Cemetery. Time
and again the cemetery
grounds have been littered
with pages torn from the book
and time and time again the
book has had to be replaced.
This has been a matter of
concern for the St. Joseph
Historical Society. Not only
are the books expensive but
the pages are records to be
treasured, signatures and
comments from people from
all over the nation and many
foreign countries.
With the recent restoration
of the registration stand in the
gazebo and the re-designing of
the lid to protect the book and
make it secure from bad
weather and vandalism,
society members are hoping
that this problem has finally
been solved. The work was
done by two high school
students who are members of
the Building Trade Class,
Torch Williams and Brian
Melton, under the supervision
of Mr. James Wood, class
instructor. In appreciation for
a splendid job the three were
presented with copies of the
Gulf County History by Mrs.
R. H. Brinson, Cemetery
Chairman, and Mrs. Nobie
Stone, Parliamentarian.
Earlier, copies of the history
had been presented to Dorton
Haddon, Superintendent of
Parks and Cemeteries, and his
assistant, Roosevelt Beard, to
Mrs. Janna Hanson, secretary
of the city, and to cemetery
workers, Horace Barr, Willie
Farmer, and Ronald Lee, to
whom the society is grateful
for many jobs well done.
The above report was given
by Mrs. R. H. Brinson at the
April meeting of the society,
held last Saturday in the
Corinne Costin Gibson Mem-
orial Library, with Mrs.
James McNeill presiding.
Among other things the mem-
bers discussed the project of
listing and recording all the
old cemeteries in Gulf County.


The first step will be to secure
a copy of the existing list now
in the office of the county clerk
and take it from there.
Of great interest to the
group was the society trip
planned for the 12th and 13th
of April, to participate in the
Annual Heritage Tour in
Eufaula, Alabama. This in-
cluded seeing ten historic
homes and an antique show by
day and a candle light tour by
night. The group will be
registered at the Lake Point
State Park Resort and Con-
vention Center, Eufaula. Cars
will leave from First United
Methodist Church Saturday
morning at 7:30 and return
Sunday evening. Plans also
include visiting Westville, a
restored 1850 village in
Lumpkin, Georgia. Others in-
terested in making the trip
may call Mrs. McNeill, 227-
1762, or Mrs. Brinson, 229-8663
for further information.
In addition to Mrs. McNeill
and Mrs. Brinson, others
attending the meeting were
Mrs. Paul Fensom, Mrs. John
Robert Smith, Mrs. Herman
Dean, Miss Netta Niblack,
Mrs. B.A. Pridgeon, Sr. and

Gulf Retired Teachers

To Meet Monday


"Grouper Season is Here"
: Spring brings flowers, showers, and fresh succulent
seafood from the Gulf and South Atlantic states. Seasonal
specials now should entice the consumer to try while the sup-
ply is plentiful - and the price is right.
Grouper is an excellent choice according to the Florida
Department of Natural Resources. All groupers are white-
fleshed. The lean fish has less than 5% oil content and no in-
termuscular bones, making them perfect for the diet cons-
cience.
Grouper lends itself well to deep-frying, poaching, and
chowders. The skin is rather tough and strong-flavored and
should be removed prior to cooking the fish. On the other
hand, the grouper head is renouned for its use in flavoring
stock for bouillabaisse and fish chowders.
Curried Grouper Amandine features this the winning
flavor combination of juicy fish, zesty curry, and crunchy
almonds. The skinned fillets are cut into I inch chunks before
being coated with a curry, flour, and salt mixture. The
chunks are then pan-fried for five to seven minutes, topped
with toasted almonds and sauted green onions, and served
over a bed of rice.
Quick, easy, and inexpensive describe Curried Grouper
I Amandlne. Serve up this 4~ljci9pp, a.oo~dtret tonight.
.l Curried Grouper AEmrandine
2 pounds skinless grouper fillets, 1 cup all-purpose flour
, fresh or frozen 1 tablespoon curry powder
;2 % cup slivered blanched almonds 1 teaspoon salt
v '/ cup sliced green onions 3 cups hot cooked rice
oil for frying
Thaw fillets if frozen. Cut fillets into 1-inch chunks. Com-
bine flour, curry powder, and salt in a bag. Add fish chunks
and shake well. Place fish in a single layer in hot fat in a
10-inch fry pan. Fry at a moderate heat, 3600F., until brown
S on all sides and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Cooking time is approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Drain on ab-
sorbent paper and keep warm. When all the fish have been
fried, add almonds and green onions to pan and cook until

Has Her

Poetry

Published
Mrs. Margaret Key Biggs,
White City, has had a number
of poems accepted for publi-
cation during the first quarter
of this year.
VALHALLA 6, a magazine
edited by Rochelle H. Dubois
of Merging Media in West-
field, New Jersey, used a
Biggs poem to support its
"Lifespan" theme.
SAMISDAT edited by Mer-
ritt Clifton of Brigham, Que-
bec, Canada carried a Biggs
poem in its first issue of the
year.
ARULO! edited by Jo
Amadeo has used several
Biggs poems previously; the
February issue carried a
poem entitled, "Closing the
Door" which has also been
picked up by Robb Thruber,
editor of ECHOS, for future
publication in that California
magazine.
VEGA, another New Jersey
magazine published ,by the
S. Florida Poetry Institute,
AFFINITIES, carried a Biggs
poem in its initial issue of the
year.
Another new magazine,
EREHWON, published in Cal-
ifornia, will use a Biggs poem
in its very first issue in May.
A photograph and a bio-
graphical sketch will be used
with a Biggs poem in THE
SACKBUT REVIEW publish-
ed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Two poems have been ac-
cepted by EARTHWISE out of
Miami for inclusion in a
portrait issue, "Cat," and
"The Worker."
Mrs. Biggs is also having
interviews with two small
press writers included in
magazines published by
EARTHWISE, which include
EARTHWISE and TEMPEST
magazines.
The Fall Court Press of
Oklahoma has notified Mrs.
Biggs that one of her poems
will be included in an antho-
logy of contemporary poetry.


Census teams will fan out
the night of April 8 searching
for people in this area who
have no fixed address, Bob
Harrington, manager of the
1980 census office for this
area, said today.
Crew leaders will take their
teams into charity-type mis-
sions, all-night theaters, hos-
tels, bus stations, parks,
campsites, motor-home over-
night parks, and other places
where "floaters" are likely to
be found. This is in an effort to
see that no one is missed in the
1980 census of population and
housing.
"It's essential to find every-


body," the manager said.
"Fixed address or no, every-
body counts in our society. It
is especially important to find
everyone who may be in
trouble. We have to know what
kinds of problems the people,
face in each.area. Our society
makes substantial sacrifices
to help those who need help of
one kind or another. It would
be tragic if we couldn't direct
that help to those areas that
most need it.
"And no one has anything to
fear by answering the census
questions, because the Census
Bureau does not divulge in-
formation about a particular


individual, family, or house-
hold. We're the nation's fact-
finder, but the only facts we
reveal are totals, averages,
percentages, and trends, fig-
ures in which no one can be
identified."
Those persons with no fixed
address are counted as part of
the population of the place
where they are found.

Two Wins In


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 1980 PAGE SEVEN


Less Patrolling Reduces Arrests


Heavy rains cut the Shark
baseball schedule for the past
week short, but the team was


victorious in the two outings it
managed to squeeze in.be-
tween showers.
Last Thursday, the Sharks
bumped the Wewahitchka Ga-
tors, 7-5, behind the pitching of
Ronald Miller. Miller gave the
Gators nine hits and whiffed
four in coasting to his win.
The Gators drew first blood,
with McLemore and Taunton
both crossing home plate with
runs in the first inning.
McLemore scored again in the
top of the second inning, to
give the Gators a 3-0 lead.
The Sharks picked up their
first run in the bottom of the
second, when Ernie Bryan
came home on an overthow at
third base.
In the third inning, the
Sharks nudged another runner
across home plate, when
1gAshley Abrams singled, ad-
*vanced on Blane Cox's single,
and scored on an error by the
Gator third baseman.
The Gators came back with
two more runs in the top of the
fourth, when Stripling and
Strange scored on two hits,
This put the Gators ahead, 5-2
and was the last of their
scoring.
The Sharks found their bats
in their end of the fourth,
erupting for five runs in the
inning to win the game.
Castledara Gant reached
base on an error to start off
the inning. Tim Beard singled,
followed by an Abrams single
to drive in Gant. Cox bunted to
load the bases and Steve Peak
pushed a base hit single into
the outfield to score Beard and
Abrams. Ronald Miller reach-
ed base on a walk to load the
bases again. Ernie Bryan
drew a base on balls to force in
a run and Peak scored on a
passed ball.

During the coming week,

ill come to town at 7:30.


Reduced patrol miles due to
the increase in gasoline costs
lowered speeding arrests by
32.8 percent in December,
1979, said the Florida Highway.
Patrol today.
Colonel Eldrige Beach said,
"Miles patrolled by troopers
in December -were down 20
percent under the same month
in 1978. This points out the
direct relationship between


baseball to two games of
baseball.
The Sharks and Owensboro
started the double-header
Tuesday afternoon, with the
Sharks edging the Kentuck-
ians, 3-2. Steve Peak picked up
his fifth win of the season
against two losses, when he
allowed two runs, five hits and
only one walk, while striking
out six.
Tim Beard was the first
Shark to reach base in the first
inning, when he was hit by a
pitched ball. Ashley Abrams
walked and Blane Cox lined
into a double play. Peak,
Freddie Woullard and Ronald
Miller all walked, scoring
Abramis to give the Sharks a
one run lead in the first inning.
Owensboro bounced back to
tie the Sharks with a single
run in the third inning.
The Sharks put another run
on the board in the fourth,
when Tim Beard reached base
on an error, stole second, went
to third on a passed ball and
scored on an squeeze play on a
throwing error by the catcher.
Again, the Wildcats bounced
back to tie the score with a
single run in the sixth.
The Sharks put their win-
"ning run on the board in the
last inning, when Woullard
had a base hit with one out and
stole second. Ronald Miller
was walked intentionally, then


arrests and miles patrolled."
Records show that the Pat-
rol made 718,153 arrests in
1979 and of these, 418,441 were
for speeding. Total speeding
arrests for December, 1979, by
the Patrol was 34,081 as
compared to 50,690 in Decem-
ber, 1978.
During 1979, troopers also
wrote 157,293 warnings, appre-


ended 1,714 wanted persons
and recovered 1,015 stolen
cars. They investigated 126,-
479 accidents and assisted
299,566 motorists who needed
help.
"Some additional funds have
been received which will alOw
the troopers to increase their
patrol miles," said Beach.

The Gulf County School
Board took an energy saving
step Tuesday evening at their
regular meeting, when they
decided to go to a four day
school week for the summer
school sessions.
Superintendent B. Walter
Wilder said, "We can't see
going to a four day program
during the regular school
year, as I see it, until industry
and business becomes more
four-day oriented."
Wilder said a four day week
for the regular school year
would place kids on the streets


an extra day a week with
nobody to look after them.
"Too", he said, "If we went to
a four day week regularly, it
would mean a lengthening of
the school day and the atten-
tion span of the primary
students is too short to leng-
then the day any more."
But for the summer school
classes, at least, the Board
will likely approve the four-
day sessions to save on energy
and expenses.
CALENDAR ACCEPTED
The Board accepted the
calendar of events for the


Training Class at Port St. Joe High School,
are shown presenting their sponsor, Lamar
Faison, with an appreciation plaque from the
class members. The presentation was made
last Thursday during class at the high school.
--Star photo


1980-81 school year Tuesday.
The new calendar will be
essentially the same as the
one for the current year.
Wilder said the major change
would be that school would be
out two days earlier next year
than it will be this year. "This
is because we have eliminated
two vacation days in the
school year next year." School
will begin on the Monday prior
to Labor Day in the fall and
will be out the following June
2.
PERSONNEL MOVED
The Board made several
major personnel moves for the
next school year in their
session Tuesday.
Hugh Semmes, veteran
principal of the Wewahitchka
Elementary School is retiring,
and Mrs. Barbara Shirley,
present assistant principal at
Port St. Joe High School has
been designated to fill his
position. Mrs. Jacque Price,
assistant principal at Port St.
Joe Elementary School will
replace Mrs. Shirley in her
Port St. Joe position.
The position being vacated
by Mrs. Price will be filled at a
later date.
Other teaching personnel
were re-appointed by the
Board.
In other business matters,
the Board accepted the new
auto mechanics building at
Wewahitchka. The contractor
was assessed 24 penalty days
for failure to have the building
completed on schedule. A
penalty of $50.00 a day was
made against the contractor.
The Board was also asked to
investigate the possibility of
constructing a track facility at
Port St. Joe High School.

Every 1,000 parts sea water
contain 35 parts salt.


p.ce i- l.,t Eicn pe umnallllya,
survey has been set at $10,500.

A survey is no good if there
is no money available to
construct what the survey is
made for. In order to get
around this problem and still
pursue whether or not the two
communities could support
such a system, the Commis-
sion will check with Farmers
Home Administration to see if
there is money available for
construction of systems in the
two communities before going


reminded the Commission
they owned a survey and plans
for such systems made sever-
al years ago by Florida
Engineering Associates at a
cost of about $45,000 to the
County. "We may need only to
update this survey and plans",
he said.
BUSINESS PICKING UP
Mrs. Dessie Lee Parker,
Supervisor of Elections, told
the Board "business will be
picking up" in her office for
the rest of the year and she


pecteu increased election
load. "This will be the largest
election Gulf County has ever
had", Mrs. Parker said.
The only problem was that
she didn't have enough money
in her budget to hire the extra
help.
The Commission agreed it
had no choice but to try to find
money in contingency items in
other budgets to finance the
extra personnel for Mrs. Par-
ker's office and told her they
would see that the money was
available for the extra em-


Point Developers Williams


Sinking Well
-ava I


Mark Hannon, representing
Stubbs and Hannon of Talla-
hassee received conditional
approval of their new subdivi-
sion on St. Joseph's Peninsula
Tuesday, contingent on a
proper and acceptable water
supply being made available
to the area, which is located
just north of the Sunland
Recreation Area.
Hannon told the County
Commission Tuesday his firm
was starting that day to drill a
deep well to supply water to
the subdivision and was ask-
ing for approval of a water
distribution system to be
placed throughout the subdi-
vision on county road rights of
way.
Hannon said the deep water
well would be drilled on the
mainland, south of State Road
30-A and piped to the subdivi-
sion.
The developers have been
seeking a source of water for
almost two years to get the
exclusive subdivision off the
ground. They have even con-
sidered running a pipeline to
the area from Port St. Joe to
carry fresh water to the
peninsula.


The State Department of
HEW had refused to give the
developers permission to sup-
ply the subdivision with shal-
low wells and septic tanks for
sewage disposal because of
the uncertainties of the shal-
low water supply. They had
also sent out a memo that they
would not allow construction
of homes in the area because
deep water was not available
on the peninsula and the
shallow supply was too small.
Repeated attempts to drill
deep wells on the peninsula
have resulted in only salt
water being found.
Hannon asked for approval
of his plat since the present
plans to drill a deep well on the
mainland woqld move aside
the only objection to develop-
ing the site. The Board agreed
they would accept the plat if
the present attempt to reach a
plentiful supply of potable
water was successful.
Chairman Doug Birming-
ham pointed out the develo-
ers should know if their water
well was successful at the next
meeting and the Board would
approve the plat at that time if
it was.

said Mr. Gray.
The Mental Health Associa-

community-based care as well
as more research into the
causes of mental illness.

in his behalf to solve a
problem his neighborhood is
having.
Peak said a person in the
neighborhood is operating a
large dog pen in his back yard
as well as a racoon pen and
hide tanning business.
"The stench gets unbear-
able", Peak said.
Attorney William J. Rish
advised the Board that they
had no nuisance ordinance
and their only recourse was to
go to the State Board of Health
with the problem or have the
courts declare the situation a
nuisance after someone files a
complaint.
Peak said N.: C. Schweikert,
county sanitary officer had
looked at the problem and told
the owner to place a lid over
the sump. where all wastes
from the operation were plac-
ed.
"He has done that, but the
odor is still overpowering at
times", Peak reported.
Commissioner Billy Branch W
said the problem was bother-
ing a lot of people in Peak's
neighborhood. "You don't
have to be too close to smell
the problem", Branch said.
Board Chairman Doug Bir-
mingham said he would per-
sonally contact Schweikert on
the matter and also instructed
Clerk George Core to write
Schweikert on the problem
and ask for a written reply
from the sanitarian.

Gulf County Commission


The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met March 11, 1980 in
regular session with the fol-
lowing members present:
Douglas C. Birmingham,
Chairman, Leo Kennedy,
James L. Tankersley, William
R. Branch, and Jimmy 0.
Gortman. Others present
were: George Y. Core, Clerk,
William J. Rish, Attorney,
K. E. Murphy, Sheriff,
Lloyd Whitffeld, Road Super-
intendent, and Tommy Pitts,
Administrative Assistant.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 am. Brother Bill
Heaton, .Pastor of the First
Baptist Church of Port St. Joe,
opened the meeting with pray-
er, followed by the pledge to
the flag.
The minutes of Febrary 26,
1980, were read, approved,
and adopted.
Mr. Ned Ailes, Director,
Gulf County Guidance Clinic,
appeared before the Board
Sand requested the County to
increase its contribution for
his organization from $2,000.00
to $8,000.00. He informed the
Commission of the services
provided by the Clinic. He also
requested the Board to ap-
point a member to his Board
of Directors. After discussion,
there was a motion by Com-
missioner Branch, seconded
by. Commissioner Tankersley,
to table this request until the
next meeting at which time a
decision will be made. Vote:
Unanimous
Mr. George Coody, local
electrician, asked the Com-
mission if it has done anything
on adopting an ordinance to
protect the local tradesmen by
requiring outside tradesmen
to pass an examination, which
will also protect the citizens of
the County. The Board direct-
ed the attorney to obtain a
copy of the Bay County
ordinance for this Board's
consideration.
Mr. Marion C. Daniels com-
plained to the Board because
he was not given employment
with the County. The Board
said it had no knowledge of
him applying for a job; that
the Board does not take
applications, except through
the Florida State Employment
Service at the time a position
is open. Because employment
under the CETA.Program was, .
questioned, Mr. David Lang-
ston, Director of the CETA
Program, explained the tak-
ing of applications and em-
ployment for positions filled
by his office.
Mr. Nolan, resident of Ward
Ridge, filed a copy of petition
requesting that Ward Ridge be
declared inactive and allow
the property owned by the City
to be owned by the County.
The Chairman said this Board
had no jurisdiction in such
matters.
Ms. Barbara Weeks, Mem-
ber of the Port St. Joe
Ambulance Squad, discussed
the possibility of increasing
the size of the ambulance
building. The Board said that
the architect is now looking
into this question.
The Attorney reported on
his negotiations with the Chev-
rolet Division of General
Motors as to the Wewahitchka
Ambulance. He said that Mr.
Ken McClellan of the Chevro-
let Division suggested that we
take the vehicle to anyone the
County wants to and have it
repaired at the expense of
General Motors. He then
asked the Commission if he
should go ahead and file suit
against General Motors or
give them this one last chance
by taking it to someone for
another last attempt to put the
ambulance in good operating
condition. After discussion,
there was a motion by Com-
missioner Branch, seconded
by Commissioner Kennedy,
and it was unanimously pas-
sed to take the ambulance to
the Chevrolet people in Blount-
stown for repairs and that a
list of what must be done be
compiled by the Ambulance
Sqard.

tion Company is suing Gulf
County on the Oak Grove

contract. The Board directed
the Attorney to defend the
County in this matter.
The Board entered into a
discussion as to ,the County
Fuel Allocation Office. It was


noted that this office has no
power whatsoever to secure
additional allocations of fuel;
that some dealers bypass this
office, going directly to the
state office and securing
additional allotments. Com-
missioner Branch said this
Commission and the Fuel
Office gets the blame for
unfair allocations, when in
fact, the Fuel Office nor this
Board, knows anything
about it until reported to
nor this Board, knows any-
thing about it until reported to
us by a- dealer who does not
have the friends in the State
Office to receive the same
treatment. Commissioner
Branch moved to abolish the
County Fuel Allocation Office,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy. Vote: Aye- Branch,
Kennedy, and Gortman. Nay-
Tankersley and Birmingham.

set up a meeting with the
Apalachee Planning Council
for the purpose of discussing a
possible grant and loan for the
Beaches and White City Water
and Sewer System.
The State Department of
Community Affairs notified
the County as to grant funds
for an energy conservation
services program for the low
income citizens. The Board
said it will study this matter.

certificates of correction for
the 1979 tax roll. No action
taken.
The Office of the Governor
notified the Board as to a
meeting of the Conference on
Aging to be held September
16-19, 1980, in Orlando. The
Board was asked to appoint
delegates to attend this meet-
Letters from Senator Pat
Thomas and Representative
Leonard J. Hall were read,
both dealing with 5th and 6th
cent gas tax allocations.
Mr. Robert R. Smith, Direc-
tor of the West Florida Disas-
ter Preparedness Office, re-
quested the County Civil De-
fense Director to act as an
umpire for a Bay County
disaster drill. The Board gave
its approval.

requested the County to con-
struct a drainage ditch on St.
Joseph Telephone and Tele-
graph property in Wewahitch-
ka. A work order has been
issued for this work.

agreement with the Gulf
County Senior Citizens As-
sociation Inc. for services
provided under its program
for the 1979-1980 fiscal year.

kert, Director of Environ-
mental Health, Gulf County
Health Department, advised
the Board that the complaint

tank at Douglas Landing has
been satisfactorily corrected
by installing a new tank in an
approved location.
Mr. Tommy Pitts, Admini-
strative Assistant, presented
*, each member a copy of rules
governing personnel activities
for all employees of the Board.
The Chairman asked each
Commissioner to study the
policy and to consider any
changes that may be neces-
sary to update the list.
Mr. Pitts reported on an
application by the St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph
Company for a permit to bury
a telephone cable between the
edge of the road surface and
the slope of the ditch on a
county road near the Gulf
County Farms area. This
application was tabled for
study.
With Commissioner Tank-
ersley acting as Chairman,
Commissioner Birmingham
moved, that upon completion
of projects now under con-
struction at the Beaches, to
immediately begin paving
East Lakeview, West Lake-
view, and Pine Crest, in
Land's Lake, and Wimico
Street, in White City; that the
first one ready for paving be
priority one under this motion
and then pave the next street
ready until all four are paved.
Motion seconded by Commis-
sioner Gortman. Vote: Aye-


Birmingham and Gortman.
Nay- Kennedy, Branch, and
Tankersley.
Commissioner Branch re-
pted that after inspecting
used trailers offered under
the invitation to bid, it was
found that the trailers offered
would cost too much to put intp
operating condition. He then
moved to rescind the previous
action taken at the last
meeting to purchase the used
trailer and to rescind the
action to purchase a new
pickup truck, but to now
advertise to purchase a new
trailer. Motion seconded by
Commissioner Tankersley
and unanimously carried.

ported that the Beaches Fire
Department did a good job in

voting precinct. He said the
original plans were to com-
plete the work a long time
after the election. A letter of
thanks will be written.
Upon a motion by commis-
sioner Branch, seconded by
Commissioner Tankersley
and unanimous vote, a ditch
easement from E. J. Rich was
accepted. Recorded in Official
Book 80, Page 973.
The Department of Trans-
portation presented a Federal
Aid Agreement between the
State and County. The Board
tabled this matter for study.
The chairman thanked the

Commissioner Kennedy re-
ported to the Board the
culverts on 22-A, between
Seventh Street and the Dead
Lakes dam, were too clase to
the pavement, creating a very
dangerous situation. He sug-

FOX





TEARIER


a new breed of shopper!


Who is that clever canine, carefully
comparing prices in his local newspaper
- clipping coupons with safety
scissors - muttering old saws like
"a penny saved is a penny earned?"
It's a new breed of Florida shopper - the
Fox Tearier. Fox Teariers are famous
for their careful planning, frugal
nature and their habit of tearing out
money-saving coupons and hunting for
bargains in Florida newspapers. Like


other Florida shoppers, 8 out of 10
Fox Teariers clip newspaper coupons.
And 6 out of 10 read newspaper
ads before buying groceries' So, sharp
sellers can depend on newspaper
advertising to deliver packs of profit-
making Fox Teariers into their food
stores. Reach for the new breed of
shopper in the medium they depend on
for value. Call your newspaper advertising
representative today.

Florida Health Officials Are Worried


About Possibility of Measles Epidemic


Florida health officials are
worried about continuing out-
breaks of measles through-
out the state-especially
among high school and col-
lege-age individuals.
During the past two months
outbreaks have been reported
in 16 counties touching every
geographical area in Florida.
Last year 43 Florida coun-
ties reported measles cases.
Dr. Robert A. Gunn, state
epidemiologist, with the De-
partment of Health and Re-
habilitative Services, said that'
1,203 cases of measles were
reported in the state in 1978,
912 in 1979, and the pattern
continues so far this year
despite preventive immuniza-
tion efforts being staged by
state and county health teams.
In the first two months of this
year 79 cases have been
reported.
"We're just beginning the
measles season", Gunn com-
mented. "Historically the
highest activity begins during
the late winter and lasts
through the spring."
Several years ago mea-
|j les-generally a disease of
k early childhood-began shift-
ing to older population groups
and this phenomena continues
today, according to Gunn.
Measles in teenagers and
adults is usually more severe
with symptoms persisting for


one to two weeks. Records of
incidence in Florida show that
twice as many young adults
(20-29) get measles today
compared to just two years
ago.
Currently Florida accounts
for about one-sixth of the
measles being reported in the
U.S. with only Pennsyvania,
Minnesota, and Virginia re-
porting more cases.
Measles is taken very seri-
ously by public health officials
and doctors who are now
engaged in a nationwide cam-
paign to eliminate the disease
from the U.S. by October,
1982.
"Complications of measles
include pneumonia, encepha-
litis, brain damage and deaf-
ness, and the disease is fatal in
a small number of cases,"
Gunn stated.
"Another complication may
be a disease called Reye's
Syndrome (RS) which has
been associated with a variety
of viral diseases such as in-
fluenza and chickenpox.
Health officials are concerned
that measles, also a viral
disease, may likewise trigger
this, sometimes fatal, often
crippling disease. Fourteen
cases of RS were reported in
Florida last year", he said,
"and five cases this year."
Gunn recommends that par-
ents keep accurate records of


their children's immuniza-
tions and make sure that all
recommended shots are
taken.
Seven common childhood di-
seases may be avoided by
simply taking shots. These
include measles, mumps, rub-
ella, polio, tetanus, whoop-
ing cough, and diphtheria.

health departments offer the
shots.
Gunn recommends that par-
ents and young adults exa-
mine their immunization re-
cords and take a special
precaution regarding measles
immunization since some vac-
cines used before 1968 were
not long lasting and may now
be ineffective against measles
virus. He recommends that
persons should be revacci-
nated who: (1) were vacci-


nated prior to 1968 with un-
known type of vaccine (2)
before 12 months of age, (3)
with killed measles vaccine,
(4) with live measles vaccine
within three months after re-
ceiving killed measles vac-
cine.
Gunn also reminds parents
that Florida has a compulsory
school immunization law re-
quiring proof of immuniza-
tion or immunity from the
seven diseases.
