Thieves Make A Mess

Thieves entered the Gulf County
Courthouse sometime in the early morning
hours last Wednesday and took some $2,000
in cash from the office of Clerk of the
Court, George Y. Core.
The burglars entered the Courthouse
with a pry bar and entered three offices in
the building in the same manner,
ransacking the Clerk's office, the Tax
Assessor's office and the Property Apprai-
ser's office, taking only the $2,000 from the
Clerk's office.
In their search, the thieves made a

general mess of the offices, prying open
locked desks, tossing records aside and
emptying desk drawers of their contents in
their search.
These pictures were taken too late to
include in last week's issue of The Star,
and show the effects of the search.
The desk in the top picture is that of
Clerk George Y. Core, normally as neat as
a pin. It wasn't after the break-in
Wednesday morning. The bottom photo
shows the office of county finance officer
Jerry Gates, after it was pried open and
searched. -Star photos

Hospital Financial Picture

Municipal Hospital adminis-
trator Richard Zyski reported
to the Hospital Board of
Directors Tuesday evening
That the hospital financial
picture is beginning to bright-
en after two years of strife
which caused the hospital to
go deeply in the red.

Zyski told the Board at its
regular meeting, "We're not
out of the woods yet, but the
picture is getting brighter.
In presenting a six-month
financial report, Zyski told the
board that normal operations
of the hospital would see
approximately a $5,000 deficit

for the year. "This doesn't
mean we are not losing a lot of
money", Zyski pointed out. He
went on to say the cost of
operating the hospital emer-
gency room is still almost a
complete liability on top of the
normal operations deficit.

"No Nudes Is Good Nudes"

Launching operation "No Nudes Is Good
Nudes", the Gulf County Sheriff's Department
declared this week there will be no nude bathing
on Gulf County beaches by arresting two
Tallahassee people, charging them with indecent
exposure last Saturday afternoon.
Arrested were Ludwig Schorlemer, age 22
and Ursula Tueller, age 25. Both people are
originally from Germany, but gave a Tallahas-
see address.
There were 11 people in the party, all from
Florida State University, but only two were

observed without their clothes, when officers
arrived at the party's sunbathing site on the
Peninsula near the site known locally at the
"Stump Hole."
Nude sunbathing has been going on by young
people on the Peninsula for the last two or three
years, with the few residents on the peninsula
issuing complaints to the Sheriff's Department.
This year, the practice has seemed to spill over
into the areas used more often by local families
for fishing, swimming and recreation on the
beaches, resulting in a flood of complaints about
the disturbance caused family outings by the

buff bathers.
Sheriff Murphy said, "According to informa-
tion I received from the students, word is out at
the FSU campus that it is permissible to
sunbathe in the nude in the vicinity of Cape San
Blas. We have assigned regular patrols in this
area and plan to stop this procedure by arresting
those who expose themselves in any way. The
people will probably change their location now."
Sheriff Murphy said anyone observing this
kind of conduct is asked to call the Gulf County
Sheriff's office immediately.

The County Commission
continues to have unexpected
expenses tax its already tight
budget and Tuesday's meeting
was no exception.
STax Collector Harland Prid
geon told the Commission that
new state laws required it to
pay for advertising and as-
sume the tax deeds of all
property with unpaid taxes of
less than $100.00, accounting
for about 60 percent of the
unpaid tax rolls.
Pridgeon explained that
previously, private investors
bought the certificates for the
interest they would earn, but a
new state law has required the
County to assume these tax
deeds as a result of Gadsden
County's Kenon case in which
an elderly couple's home was
taken from them for a $3.20
tax bill.
Pridgeon pointed out to the
Board that not only do they get
the revenues from the tax sale
due to their assuming owner-
ship of the delinquent tax
deeds, but the County must
pay the advertising costs on
these deeds.
Pridgeon said his office
advertised 145 separate par-
cels for unpaid taxes and
private investors purchased 25
of them at the annual tax sale.
"This means you must as-
sume ownership of the other

office had computer costs
involved in working up the tax
rolls, now required by the
state of Florida, which he

It's unusual in these days of
inflation to make plans to
build something one year and
get around to doing it the next
year, only to find out you had
more money than was needed
to do what you had planned.
This phenomenon happened
to the Gulf County Commis-
sion this month in getting
down to getting the actual
prices of what it would cost to
build certain roads and re-
surface others throughout the
county. The county had some
$2.3 million from a bond issue,
pledging future secondary
road funds, to do extensive
paving throughout the county.
In making plans of which
roads to pave or re-surface,
the commission, at the sug-
gestion of administrative as-
sistant, Tommy Pitts, built in

could be paved under the
bonding program.
Last week, the Commission
gathered in a special session
to come up with a third paving
program to utilize the extra
paving money. The first pav-
ing contract was let a month
ago, including several re-
surfacing projects throughout
the county. This paving pro-
gram is expected to get
underway the first of next
week. Several streets in Port
St. Joe are included in the
re-surfacing program.
Two weeks later, the Com-
mission let a second contract
for paving several streets in
the county and construction of
a new concrete bridge on the
Indian Pass Beach road.

ly being formulated will inc-

Drive-In Opens

Florida First National Bank opened its new drive-in
window installation Monday of this week after nearly three
months of construction work. The bank has enlarged the
drive-in facility from its former single lane operation to three
actively operating lanes. All the facilities are pneumatically
operated, transporting the banking transactions through an
underground tube to the inside of the bank building. The new
drive-in facilities are only a part of a program to improve the
local facilities of the Florida Bank, according to president,
Ted Cannon. -Star photo

Found Dead On

Overstreet Road

Conrad Adolph Marlen, age 63, of Overstreet, was
found dead about 7.45 a.m., Monday morning, on the road
leading to his home, according to Sheriff Ken Murphy.
Murphy said, "Mr. Marien was apparently leaving
the house in his pick-up truck. The vehicle left the road
and struck a post, continued on several hundred feet and
struck a pine tree. Mr. Marien then tried to jack the truck
up and get it unstuck. Unable to do so, he started back
toward the house. About one tenth mile from the house, he
collapsed in the road where he was found later".
Lt. Jack Davila and Investigator Charlie Hill
investigated the incident. Dr. Ralph Monaco,.coroner, will
do an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
"We don't know at this time if Mr. Marien was injured
in the accident or not. We'll just have to wait for the
autopsy", Sheriff Murphy said.

What Other Nation Could Handle Huge Cuban Influx?

An old proverb says that unwelcome
guests, like fish, begin to smell after three
The Cuban refugees at Fort Walton Beach
and Fort Chaffee are beginning to fall into the
unwanted guest category. They are beginning
to make themselves unwelcome in this land of
the free.
It seems their accommodations aren't as
plush as they would like for them to be and we
aren't handing them out private places to stay
as rapidly as they would like.
We think the Cubans are being a little bit
ungrateful and are beginning to stir the
distaste of the American people for their being
here in the first place.
As for their accommodations, we think
they are pretty good considering the circum-
stances and in most instances are probably
better than they left at home.
In the beginning of this last exodus of the
Cubans, there was supposed to be only about
10,000 coming to the United States. As it wound
up, there were over 100,000 of them in a short
period of time coming to the United States to
be taken care of. We'll wager that if they had

gone to any other nation in the world, their
accommodations would not be so good as they
are here under the circumstances.
In the spring of last year and the year
before, Frenchie and I went to visit her sisters
in Minneapolis and Spokane. We had never
been to visit either family in their home, so
they both gave up their air conditioned
bedrooms with king size beds for us to sleep on

while we were there. Had we decided at the
last minute to take the whole family with us,
somebody would have had to sleep on the floor
on a pallet on the porch.
What we're saying is, had the Cubans
come here only 10,000 strong as they had first
said, probably better accommodations could
have been provided. But since they had to
bring a good part of the nation along with

them, somebody is going to have to sleep on a
pallet on the floor until better arrangements
can be made.
It would probably be perfectly all right
with the government, and if what we hear on
the talk shows is any indication, it would be all
right with a large segment of the people of this
nation, if they just went back home if they are
not satisfied with what is being done for them.

Gov. Graham ShouldHeed Treatment Given Gas Tax

President Carter's proposed sur-tax on a
barrel of oil which would raise the price of a
gallon of gasoline by a dime a gallon has been
thoroughly shot down.
As one writer put it, even the present
Congress was able to see the American people
wouldn't put up with this additional tax when
it wasn't at all necessary.
The President was even unable to make
his veto stick to kill the measure which did his
oil tax in.

The Governor of Florida also wants to
place an additional tax on gasoline. His
proposed tax would eventually be larger than
the one President Carter had planned.
Governor Graham thinks the tax is
necessary for road building and helping to
curtail the use of energy. Maybe it is, but we
think the State of Florida can very well do like
the rest of us in these times of rising prices: it
can exercise some economies by trimming
here and there, like the rest of us are having to

The treatment President Carter's gaso-
line taxing attempt received should be
indication enough to Governor Graham that
he need not think about running for a second
term with any ease if he persists in going
through with his plans.

The Governor may also be in trouble with
the people for proposing additional school
taxes to take back what was given to the
people recently in an increased homestead
exemption for school taxing purposes.

Ministers Promoting

Christian Patriotism

Dear Wesley:
Separation of Church and
State does not mean separat-
tion of God and Country. Our
nation needs to turn toward
God. As we are drawing near
to the anniversary date of our
national freedom it is impor-
tant that Christians become
united in our faith, and in the
practice of Christian patrio-
tism. In connection with this
the Port St. Joe Ministerial
Association has appointed a
committee, among its mem-
bers of various denominations
and races, to plan for a mass

worship service for our entire
community on Sunday even-
ing, June 29, to be held in the
commons area of Port St. Joe
High School.
All churches are asked to
support this service of patrio-
tic worship. We are privileged
to have congressman Earl
Hutto as the speaker. It is
anticipated that refreshments
may be served aferwards. If
so, this will provide members
of various churches an oppor-
tunity to greet each other.

The local clinic is operated

ing aftercare for 78 patients
who would otherwise be hos-
pitalized in the state hospital

Clinic not in operation. Ailes
explained the local aftercare
alone provided to the 78
patients saves the state more
than the entire budget of the
local clinic. Ailes said it costs
the state $51.00 a day to keep a
patient in the state hospital.
Ailes said he felt the local
clinic was cost effective and
performance effective. "We
will have to make some cuts in
our services if we can't get
enough local money to off-set
the federal contribution", he
pointed out.

Ramsey Clark Making Success of Ruining A Perfectly Good Name

RAMSEY CLARK has done it
For the umpteenth time, he has
decided to tell the government of this
country to go to where the worm never
dies and has decided himself just what
the United States of America needs.
In this instance, he has decided,
regardless of what the government
says or what the people think, he thinks
it js the proper thing to do for him to go
to Iran and confess that this country
has committed all kinds of crimes
against their country, so would you
please now give us our hostages?
Old Ramsey even wanted to take
the places of the hostages in Iran and
let them come home.
This was a noble gesture on his
part, since he knew full well the
Iranians didn't want him. What would
they do with him?
Clark also went to Iran to attend the
so-called international conference on
U.S. interventions in Iran. As a rule I
don't care much for Hodding Carter,
III, the soto official voice of the White
House who is about as interesting as a
pair of starched shorts. I agree with
Carter's (Hodding 3-I) definition that

the conference being attended by Clark
is nothing but "a propaganda circus."
I guess that's what made Ramsey
go. He should feel right at home at
a propaganda circus.

Be assured there is no relation
there whatsoever. He just happens to be
dragging a good name through the

going to try and succeed Representa-
tive Leonard Hall in his job. Since
Leonard came from about the same
neck of the woods as Jack, they start on
equal terms.
Jack may be younger and better
looking than Leonard, but Leonard is in
there, and it's most always harder to
get someone out that is in than it is to
get a vacancy.

Strickland is a former assistant and
campaign worker for Congressman
Earl Hutto, so he isn't exactly a
greenhorn coming into something he
knows absolutely nothing about.
Before it is all over with, the Hall,

interesting as a Sun Guard billboard, as

Earl Hattaway, new executive assist-
ant for Congressman Hutto come by to
pay his respects and tell me Earl had
some opposition announcing that day in
Panama City.
The Earl of Hattaway said the Earl
of Hutto was planning a town hall type
meeting open to the public here in Port
St. Joe early in July.
One thing we can say about Hutto,
he has pretty much kept his ear to the
ground and his finger on the pulse of
Northwest Florida during his first term
in Congress.
His series of town hall meetings he
is planning should continue his tech-
nique of knowing, first hand, what his
constituents are feeling and wanting.

to look for a new pastor for the church.
I have already found out that this
pastor search thing could get danger-
ous, and probably would be more prone
to be so, if it were not for the nature of
Baptist people.
One of the duties of the pastor
search committee is to visit other
Baptist churches and seerif they have a
pastor we would like to try and take
away from them.
When a group of four or five
strangers walk into a Baptist church to
attend the services, the church visited
usually knows what is going on.
We have visited two churches
already and got some pretty pointed
questions poked our way and some
stares which might have singed hair if
it hadn't been Sunday in church.

it is over.

American Fisheries
Promotion Act
This week my Subcom-
mittee on Fisheries, Wildlife
Conservation, and the En-
vironment reported a bill to
the Merchant Marine and
Fisheries Committee which
could substantially enhance
the development of fisheries
resources with U.S. waters
and provide some much-
needed relief to American
fishermen. This bill, which I
have co-sponsored, is entitled
the American Fisheries Pro-
motion Act it offers a comprehensive ap-
proach in dealing with the
problems facing the
American fisherman today.
The bill addresses a severe
economic depression that has
struck the U.S. fishing in-
dustry. In particular, fuel
prices have escalated to the
point where fishing has
become uneconomic for
much of the Gulf of Mexico
shrimp and other fishing in-
dustries. For example, the
cost of a gallon of diesel fuel
has risen from about 48 cents
in early 1979 to more than 95
cents in 1980 in the Gulf. This
situation, coupled with soft
markets and competition
from Mexican fishermen who
obtain fuel at about 20 cents
per gallon and encounter no
duties on shrimp products
entering the United States,
has resulted in approximately
75% of the 4500-vessel fleet
being tied up. In addition to
this, the U.S. imported $3.8
billion of fish, shellfish, and
associated products in 1979
while exporting only $1
billion in fishery products.
The net result - in excess of
$2 billion - represented
about 10% of the total U.S.
balance-of-payments deficit
and further fuels inflation.
H.R. 7039 addresses these
problems by restructuring the
Fisheries Loan Fund to assist ,
vessel owners in danger of
defaulting on their mortgage
payments. It also amends the
Capital Construction Fund,
imposes new fees on foreign
fishermen, and phases out
foreign fishing in American
waters over a certain period
of time. If successful, it could
create more than 40,000 jobs
in this.country and add more
than $1 billion per year to the
U.S. economy.
Social Security Guide
I receive a great deal of
correspondence from widows

who are having trouble with
the Social Security Ad-
ministration regarding
benefits. While I can be of
assistance to you on par-
ticularly difficult and com-
plicated cases, many ques-
tions regarding these benefits
may be readily answered in a
new publication, A Woman's
Guide to Social Security,
available through the Con-
sumer Information Center in
Pueblo, Colorado.
For example, did you
know that a woman who
works earns social security
protection for herself and for
her family? And even if she is
single with no dependents,
the social security credits she
earns while she is working
count toward monthly
benefits for the family she
may have in the future.
Furthermore, the pam-
phlet tells you what to do if
you have a name change
because of marriage or other
reasons. Also, the informa-
tion includes a myriad of
situations which you might
encounter and what your
rights are in each of these
cases. To order a copy, send a
postcard to:

V3 teaspoon salt
V2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vinegar

Sheriff Ken Murphy said

that investigation by his de-

' Repeated problems with the
ambulance which has seen it
log only 7,000 miles in a year
and a half and be out of

presently inoperable, even
after extensive warranty re-
pairs. The vehicle was sent to
a GM dealer by the factory
only six weeks ago, where it
stayed in the shop for a month.
Still it won't run dependably.
Commissioner James Tank-
ersly made a motion Tuesday
to enter suit against GM to

chassis of the vehicle and

expenses involved with the

by the pledge to the flag.
The minutes of April 22,
1980, meeting were read
corrected, approved, and
dr. James Herndon of the
Division of Drivers License
appeared before the Board
and requested permission to
keep the local drivers license
office open from 7:00 a.m. to
15:30 p.m., Monday through
Thursday of each week, and
the office would be closed all
day Friday of each week. He
said this ten hour per day, four
day per week was being tried
by his department. Commis-
sioner Gortman asked what
the present policy is as to the
Courthouse hours. The Clerk
reported that it has been an
established policy since mov-
ing into this new building to
open the Courthouse for the
public to transact their busi-
ness at 9:00 a.m. and to close
at 5:00 p.m.; the custodian in
charge of the building locks
the doors at 5:00 p.m. He said
all Courthouse personnel have
keys to the doors which allows
them to come into and leave
the building before and after
office hours. He said that
because there is no air in the
building, except forced air, it
is necessary that a building
custodian be required to be in
the building at all times the
building is open to the pulbic.
These was a motion by

ously carried, that the Board

that the County's architect on

The Bay Memorial Medical

of charges for Thomas J.

claims to be indigent and

amount of $1,016.85. Because
no one on the Commission has
knowledge of this person, the
Chairman appointed Commis-
sioner Gortman to investigate
this matter.
Mrs. Joyce Williams, Dep-
uty Tax Appraiser, and Mr.
Harland 0, Pridgeon, Tax
Collector, discussed the ur-
gency of completing the 1980
Tax Roll within the time
required by law. Mrs. Wil-
liams informed the Commis-
sion that the Tax Appraiser,
Mr. Sammy Patrick, is ill and
has been in a coma over two
weeks and that his doctor
reports him to be in critical
condition. She then reported
that the State Department of
Revenue has instructed Mr.
Patrick to increase the asses-
sed values on the 1980 tax roll
in order for it to be approved
by the State. After discussing
how the Board can assist in
this matter, the Chairman

asked Mrs. Williams to con-
tact the Department of Rev-
enue and determine exactly
what they expect in order to
approve the 1980 roll. Mr.

Pridgeon reminded the Board
that even if Mr. Patrick
overcomes the coma he is in, it
will probably be a long time

survey on the proposed main-

discuss this matter.
Mr. Pitts reported that a
pre-construction conference
with the engineer, contractor,
and county will be held May
14, 1980.
Mr. Pitts discussed Sunny-

Mr. Pitts informed the
'Board that he has some
serious equipment problems.
He said his diesel truck
requires a new rear end, due
to two bad seals. He said he
has quotes from two concerns
offering the parts to rebuild
the rear end at $1,070.20 and
$1,164.09, but that a two
speed axle rear end will cost
only $1,250.00 already assem-
bled, which costs less than the
price of the parts and then
having to assemble them.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Gortman, sec-
onded by Commissioner Ken-
nedy, and it was unanimously
carried that the replacement
of this rear end be declared
an emergency and Mr. Pitts
purchase the two speed axle
rear end at $1,250.00.
Mr. Pitts informed the

Board that one of Iis fogging
machines, which has been in
use for twelve years, requires
extensive maintenance that
will cost between $400.00 and
$700.00, but he has quotes of
$1,288.00 and $1,346.00 .for a
new cast iron machine and
$591.00 for a new aluminum
machine. He said the alumin-
um machine should give good
service for 5-6 years and the
cast iron machine is usually
good for 12-15 years. There
was a motion by Commis-
sioner Kennedy, seconded by
Commissioner Tankersley,
and unanimously carried, that
the replacement of this ma-
chine be declared an emerg-
ency and a new aluminum
machine be purchased at
Mr. Pitts informed the
Board his dragline ring gear
will no longer operate, causing
the dragline to be shut down.
He said he has a quote for a
