Drainage Improvements

You wouldn't believe we would ever
need any drainage work here in Port St.
Joe, as dry as it is now; but it will rain
again, and when it rains, there will be
drainage problems.
The City is trying to head off one of
these problems this week, installing
30-inch concrete drainage pipe on Palm

Boulevard to handle a problem in that
area. The pipe installation is a part of a
comprehensive city drainage program,
designed by Smith and Gillespie, En- -
gineers, of Jacksonville.
The city puts in part of the recommend-
ed drainage facilities each year.

Mexico Beach Deals

With Port St. Joe for Sewage Treatment

Mexico Beach wants to bargain with the City of
Port St. Joe to pipe its sewage to Port St. Joe and
put it in the City's multi-mill6oh-dollar Wastewater
Treatment Plant for treatment. Mexico Beach's
City fathers don't know yet whether or not they
want to pay what the Port St. Joe Commission is
asking them to pay for the service.
The City has made the beach community west
of Port St. Joe, just across the Bay County line a
price of 30 cents per thousand gallons. Gil
Mauriello, of J. B. Converse, engineers, represent-
ing the Beach community says this is considerably
less than the community can treat their sewage
with their own plant, which they don't have yet.
Not having the plant is why the beach
commissioners are trying to strike up a deal with
Port St. Joe. If an acceptable agreement can be
reached with Port St. Joe, they won't have to build a
disposal plant, which would remove them from a lot
of present and future headaches.
Tuesday night, Mexico Beach Mayor, Jim
Heathcock, Commissioner Richard Kibler and en-
gineer Mauriello, came to the Port St. Joe

Commission meeting to discuss the proposed fee
and try to get a reduction in price.
Heathcock told the Port St. Joe Commission,
"Mexico Beach has two choices. We can come to
Port St. Joe with our effluent, or we can put in our
own system." Requirements in the past were that
the system Mexico Beach may be stuck with would
be a spray irrigation disposal system, which is
under attack by environmentalists in Lynn Haven
now. Heathcock said Tuesday night, the beach may
not be limited to the spray system any longer, but
did not reveal their alternative.
Heathcock asked the City to reconsider their
proposed charge to Mexico Beach, saying, "Some
larger cities are charging less than one and one half
times the expenses of operation and maintenance.
Mayor Frank Pate told the Mexico Beach
delegation it costs 20.05 cents per thousand gallons
to operate the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the
Commission has agreed to let Mexico Beach send its
effluent to the plant for 30 cents per thousand. Pate
said, "That's about as low as we could go and is
probably considerably less than you could treat
your sewage in any other manner."

Mauriello acknowledged that it would cost
Mexico Beach at least 45 cents per thousand to
operate their own plant, but noted the beach
community would have a considerable cost building
a pressure line to Port St. Joe to bring the effluent
here. "We're looking at a cost factor of some 50-60
cents a thousand to get the sewage here and treat
it", the engineer said.
Kibler noted that transport to Port St. Joe and
treatment costs here would just about equal on-site
treatment expenses.
Pate pointed out it was worth something to get
away from having to deal continuously with DER
and EPA. He also pointed out that the tremendous
volume at the Port St. Joe plant made treatment
here in Port St. Joe cost less than it did in smaller
Pate advised the Beach Commissioners, the
City of Port St. Joe would have to get one and half
times the cost of operation for their services, which
would presently amount to 30 cents per thousand.
He asked Heathcock and Kibler to take the matter
up with their Commission and then get back with
the Port St. Joe Commission.

Brock Named to

Appraiser's Post
Governor Bob Graham announced yesterday the
appointment of Charles W. Brock as property appraiser for
Gulf County.
Brock, 71, of Port St. Joe, has 14 years experience in
commercial banking. He is a past city auditor and clerk of
the city for the City of Port St. Joe. He is a retired colonel of
the United States Air Force.
Brock is a member of Parker Masonic Lodge No. 142 and
a member of A&A Scottish Rite of Panama City. He fills the
vacancy created by the death of Samual A. Patrick.
His term will expire in January of 1981.
Former Property Appraiser, Patrick, died last month,
while serving in his 48th year in office. Patrick had the record
of being the oldest elected official in length of service in the
State of Florida.

Will Ward Ridge Survive?

Faction Would Abolish City's Charter

Ward Ridge may be the smallest incorporated
city in the State of Florida, but at the present time,
it has some of the most vexing problems of any city
in the state. The problem is whether or not to
remain an incorporated city or to drop their
incorporated status. There are those in the tiny
community nestled up to the southern flank of the
City of Port St. Joe who would drop their charter
status. Others in the community want to remain a
city and want the residents of the area to decide the
question at the ballot box.
Tuesday, the State Department of Community
Affairs was to consider removing the city's charter,
which has apparently been inactive for the past
several years. But, objections to the abandonment
of Ward Ridge caused the Department to schedule a
hearing to let both sides in the matter be heard
before a final decision on the future of Ward Ridge
is tampered with.
The State Department was considering dissolv-

ing the city's charter through a proclamation from
the secretary of state's office because it had not
held an election since 1972.
No date has been set for the hearing, but it is
expected to be held before the September 9 primary
Ward Ridge has never been what one would call
a bustling city, since only six voters elected the
original Commission for the city in 1972. At that
time, John Rich was elected Mayor, his wife, Trixye
and C. W. Roberts were named Commissioners.
Roberts has since died and had not been replaced
until recently, when Allen McCulley was appointed
to the vacant post three weeks ago..
Ward Ridge was created by George G. Tapper
several years ago and everything went along well
until recently when seven residents, through their
attorney, Cecil G. Costin, Jr., entered suit calling
for an accounting of the city's finances. The city has
never levied any taxes.

At the center of the suit, is a controversy over
the Ward Ridge city hall, which houses only the
offices of Tapper, with his firm paying rent on the
building. The rental payments equal the amount
owed each month on the bond issue used to
construct the building.
In recent years, Tapper has dealt with the City
of Port St. Joe to furnish water and sewer for the
community, with Tapper footing the bill to put the
system in and doing the accounting of the monthly
water and sewer charges ever since. Tapper says
the charges to the several customers are just
enough to pay the City of Port St. Joe for the
Things at the small city really began to hum
about two months ago, when there was a move
started to consider annexing with the City of Port
St. Joe. At that time, a group objected to the move,
desiring, instead, to abandon the Ward Ridge
charter and come under the jurisdiction of the

Power Plant Delay Is A Disappointment

We were crushed by the announcement by
Florida Power Corporation this past week that
a decision to build a new power generating
plant - possibly in the Port St. Joe area - has
been delayed for at least two years.
Those of us here in the Port St. Joe area
thought we had an inside chance at landing the
big plant for our area which would boost our
local economy considerably. We were all
waiting with bated breath for the location

announcement which was due between now
and October of this year. We had our hopes
built up.
They have now been dashed for a while
and we will just have to wait some more.
Two things are in our favor, however.
Florida Power still needs the extra power
production capacity and Gulf County still
needs the extra payroll. Maybe, in the next
few months between now and 1982, the two

needs can somehow mesh with one another
and provide a solution which can solve both
our needs.
While we are mourning this set-back, we
are ignoring another more obvious problem
we have. We all need to offer ourselves and
our abilities as much as we can and in any
manner we can to help Sylvachem and their
operating unions reach an agreement and put
that plant back to work. We all need it.

OUR SHERIFF, Ken Murphy is
trying to head off any attempt by
students at Florida State University
from turning Gulf County into a haVen
for nude sunbathing and cavorting on
the beaches in the raw.
Some few weeks ago, I had a piece

here about this area of Florida being
labeled as the "Red-Necked Riviera",
but I had no idea there were those who
would try to add more of the flavor of
France's Riviera to our locale.
Times sure have changed. I can
remember when it was a risque thing to
do to sneak down to a deserted section
of beach in the dark of night to enjoy a
swim in the altogether. It was done
then, only if the swimmer had the
assurance there was no one else in the
area and he wouldn't be seen.
I know I would be embarrassed to
death if I were to be caught, or even
seen, nude on a beach. Not because I
would be ashamed of my physique in
the raw, but just because it isn't my
idea of the proper attire for public
Even when I was younger, going
nude in public at the beach just wasn't
done. It wasn't even done at the
secluded beaches, at least to the degree
as it is now.
I remember the first day of the
dove season last fall. I was invited by
one of my sons to join him in his Jeep to
ride the beach at the point, to shoot
doves. We put in at the Coast Guard
station and started toward the end of

the Peninsula. We ran into at least
three parties participating in nude sun#
bathing and swimming. We ran up on
one particular party of one girl (I won't
call her a lady) and two young men,
lying at the edge of the hard sand taking
in the sun's rays in the nude. Neither of
the three made any other effort to
move, cover themselves, or get out of
the way. We had to go around them and
they went on nonchallantly with their
sun bathing.
We went on with our dove hunting.
Gulf County is a family recreation
area. We don't need this type of
carrying on at our beaches. We applaud
the Sheriff and his attempt to keep it a
family recreation area* He has an
almost impossible task, with his few
men and the large amount of beach to

papers last week. They fear a revolu-

inflation rate seem to be the ones who
are suffering the most from it.

"Florida's libraries are no
longer simple repositories of
the printed word. They have
evolved into vital multi-media
centers offering a spectrum of
cultural and educational ser-
vices to diverse client
groups," Firestone said.
"These federal grants play
a major role in making these
services possible. The time
has come to see greater
support on the local and state
leiels as well."

Three grants have been
awarded to the Northwest
Regional Library, which is
operated by the Bay County
Library Association and
serves six counties in the
Florida Panhandle.
A grant of $50,000 will help
pay for a program providing

Attractive Lawns Require Proper

Mowing to Remain Vigorous

An attractive lawn is largely
the result of regular cutting at
the proper mowing height. A
properly mowed lawn is more
vigorous and will have fewer
disease problems.
It is natural for the home-
owner to want to cut the grass
as short as possible in order to
lengthen the time between
cuttings. However, "scalp-
ing" the lawn can seriously
injure the grass. Removal of
large portions of the leaf
results in reduced carbohy-
drates will weaken the turf
and allow it to be invaded by
weeds and injured.by disease
and insects. Loss of large
portions of leaf will also cause
severe reduction in root, rhi-
zome and stolon growth.
Starting with a sharp mow-
er, the homeowner should
avoid removing more than
one-third of the leaf surface of
his grass at a cutting.
Mowing height is fairly well
established for Florida lawn-
grasses. Bermudagrasses and
zoysiagrasses can be mowed
at � - 1 inch, centipedegrass

and carpetgrass at 1-2 inches,
and St. Augustinegrasses and
bahiagrasses at 2-4 inches:.
There are however, except-
ions to these guidelines. 'Ar-
gentine' bahia is quite attrac-
tive, when maintained at 2
inches and 'Floratine' St.
Augustiriegrass has been
maintained satifactorily at 1
A high mowing height is
suggested for grass in shaded
areas. This increases the leaf
area for capture of the limited
light energy. Higher mowing
height will also benefit a
lawngrass when weakened by
pest injury, traffic or environ-
mental stress. .
Mowing frequency is deter-
mined by the growth rate of
the grass. The rate of growth
will depend on temperature,
light and moisture conditions,
and nitrogen levels. Since the
amount of moisture and ferti-
lizer applied differs greatly
from one lawn to the next, it is
not correct to say that all
bahiagrass lawns must be
mowed every 7-10 days. Fre-

quency depends on how rapid-
ly the lawn is growing.
The "Rule of thumb" is to
mow often enough so that not
more than one-third of the
total leaf surface is removed
at any one mowing. If it is
desirable to maintain St.
Augustine at 2 inches, now
when the grass is 2 %-3 inches
tall. If you return from
vacation and the lawn is 6
inches high, reduce the height
gradually through several
mowings a few days apart.
Another factor which is not
as critical as cutting height
and frequency is mowing
pattern. In successive mow-
ings, try varying the pattern
in two or three directions. This
will distribute the mower
wear more uniformly over the
lawn and improve the quality
of the cut. Also, to minimize
wear on the turf, try making
your turns on the sidewalk or
driveway. When turning on
the-grass, make a wide,
sweeping are rather than a
sharp, rapid 360 degree turn.
Rapid, spinning turns can

bruise and tear the turf.
Avoid mowing wet grass.
Dry grass cuts easily, does not
clog the mower, reduces the
chance of spreading disease-
causing organisms and gives a
more pleasing, finished ap-
Removal of clippings is
another factor that merits
consideration. If the lawn is
mowed frequently, the small
amount of clippings may not
be detrimental. Short clipp
ings decay rapidly and usually
do not contribute to thatch
formation. However, accumu-
lation of excessive amounts of
clippings may smother the
lawn, contribute to thatch
buildup and provide an excel-
lent environment for disease
and insects. Therefore, re-
moval of the clipping with a
grass catcher or weeper is

Floratine is finer textured
than Bitter Blue, and it tol-
erates closer mowing than
most other St. Augustine
varieties. Floratam is a vigor-
ous lawngrass with good color.
But, it isn't as fine-textured or
low-growing as Floratine.
Floratam's major advantage
is that is seems to be highly
tolerant of chinch bugs, the
most serious pest of St.
Augustine lawns.
It's best to start a new St.
Augustine lawn in spring or
summer. To prepare the new
lawn site, clean up all con-
struction residue, such as con-
crete chips, mortar and plas-
ter. If you leave this soil, it can
raise the pH, making certain
essential nutrients unavail-
able to the grass.
Before planting anew St.
Augustine lawn, you should
work fertilizer and organic
matter, such as peat moss,
into the soil to a depth of four
to six inches. Use a 10-10-10 or
13-13-13 analysis fertilizer with
minor elements included. To
determine the amount needed,
divide the first analysis num-
ber into one hundred. The
answer indicates the number
of pounds per thousand square
feet to apply. Take a 10-10-10
for example. Ten into a
hundred equals ten, ten
pounds per thousand square
feet. Established St. Augus-
tine lawns should be fertilized
2 or 3 times a year. Spring
summer and fall excessive
fertilization causes problems,
thatch build-up and increase
cinch bug attack.
St. Augustine grass is pro-
pagated vegetatively. There
are no seeds available so you
have to use sod, plugs, or
sprigs to plant a lawn. Sodding
is the quickest method. Just
have your whole yard covered
with block or turf. But, this is
the most expensive way to
establish a lawn. Plugs are
small pieces cut from sod
blocks. You plant them a foot
or so apart. Sprigs are just the
separated, individual runners.
These are planted end-toend
in rows six to twelve inches
apart. With proper care a

plugged or sprigged lawn
should cover in one growing
A newly planted St. Augus-
tine lawn needs water every
day for the first two to four
weeks, and fertilizer every

three or four months. The
lawn will need less care after
it's established. But, you still
must maintain a good pro-
gram of proper fertilization,
watering, mowing and pest

New brides, along with
anyone else who has had a
recent name change, should
visit their social security
office to arrange to have their
names changed on social
security records and to apply
for a new social security card
showing their new name,
David Robinson, Social Secu-
rity Field Representative for
'Gulf County, said recently.
Unless the bride plans to use
her maiden name after marri-
age, the record should be
changed so that earnings are
correctly reported to the cor-
rect record.

security card, which will show
the person's new name, but

In addition, two items of

submitted, Robinson said.
Possible evidence includes:

cree, work badge or building
pass, passport, court order for
name change, welfare case
record, insurance policy, or
any other document showing
identification data such as a

physical description, photo-

Only original documents or
copies certified by the issuing
agency are acceptable, Robin-
son said. Uncertified photo-
copies are not acceptable.
Robinson also said that it
takes about six weeks to get
the new card after acceptable
evidence has been submitted.

Up the

Unrestrained children be-
come flying missiles during a
car crash said the Florida
Highway Patrol today.
Actual crashes using re-
search dummies to simulate
children and infants dramati-
cally proves that children
should be restrained while
riding in a motor vehicle.
It has been shown that an
adult cannot physically hold a
small child in his lap during a
crash. One of the most danger-
ous habits for adult drivers to
have is holding a small child in
their lap while driving. A
minor bump into the car
ahead could result in the child
being crushed between the
driver and the steering wheel.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director, would like to see
civic groups purchase infant
restraints and loan them to
parents of small infants who
would return them when the
child is large enough to use
regular seat belts. Infant
restraints are available from
major automobile manufac-
turers as well as other
Parents should set an ex-
ample for their children by
buckling up every time they
drive, not just on long trips.
Most crashes occur within 25
miles of the driver's home.
Parents should prove that
they are responsible mothers
and fathers by insisting they
their children wear seat re-
straints when riding in a
Motor vehicle.

Read the Rules for Summer Hires

This is the time of year that
many area farmers are hiring
summer workers, ,and they
should know the rules con-
cerning social security cover-
age, David Robinson, Social
Security Field Representative
for Gulf County, said recently.
It is important that farm
employers keep the proper
records and report their em-
ployee's earnings for social
security purposes. Employers
should record their employ-
ees' name, address, social

security number, wages paid,
and their own employer ident-
ification number. This infor-
mation is needed, Robinson
said, so that if reports are
required, they can be made
promptly and accurately.
If the workers' wages are
covered, then social security
taxes must be withheld. Agri-
cultural wages are covered if
the employee is paid $150 or
more in cash wages during the
Also, if an employee is paid

on a time basis by the hour,
day, week, or month, all of his
or her wages are covered
when the employee works on
20 or more days during the
Should the employer with-
hold social security tax from
an employee's wages and then
finds out that the wages are
not covered because neither
test is met, the social security
tax should be refunded to the
Wages covered by social

security should be reported by
the farm employer after the
end of the year in which they
were paid.
More information about cov-
erage of agricultural labor
can be obtained at the Pan-
ama City Social Security
Office, located at 30 West
Government Street. The tele-
phone number is 769-4871.

OHutto Makes Request for Dredging

Will Complement Channel Entrance Work Underway

Congressman Earl Hutto
(D-Fla) announced from
Washington, D.C., today that
the long-awaited approval for
the dredging at St. Joseph
Point is at hand. Bids were
recently requested for the
project and the only respon-
dent is within the cost esti-
mates. That bidder is Wil-
liams & McWilliams of New
Hutto also announced that
funding for the second part of
the project is included in the

FY81 appropriations bill now
pending before the House.
"The Administration, just a
few months ago, eliminated
the $1,056,000 in the FY81'
budget request for the second
phase of the project," Hutto
stated the second phase in-
cludes dredging the channel
from the peninsula to the
docks and includes dredging
of the basin adjoining the
docks. "I immediately wrote
to the Chairman of the Ap-
propriations subcommittee
which funds these projects

explaining the serious impact
this reduction would have
upon the port. I also appeared
before the Subcommittee to
request restoration of funding.
Just a week ago, the full
Appropriations Committee
agreed with the Subcommittee
and restored the the funding,"
Hutto noted. "I am confident
that the House will also agree

with this decision," he said.
In referring to the project
about to be awarded, the
Congressman stated that he
was "pleased that the two-
year standoff between the
State Department of Environ-
mental Regulation and the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
is now settled and that the
dredging will go forward."

Hutto further noted that he
was "concerned that the econ-
omic life of the port was in
.jeopardy if this issue was not
readily resolved and I have
'worked closely with local,
state, and federal officials to
expedite the permitting and
Bids for the contract were
let on May 29, and a low bidder

has been selected. The amount
of the contract award is
$456,154 and dredging is
schedules to begin soon.
"To say that I am delighted
is really an understatement,"
said Hutto. "This has been
quite a struggle and has been
time-consuming for each of

Veto Override
Recently I had the
unpleasant but necessary
duty of joining with my col-
leagues from both sides of the
aisle in voting to override a
veto of the President of the
United States. As you may he
aware, this veto override
prevented the President from
imposing an additional
10t-per-gallon fee on im-
ported oil. While the Presi-
dent felt that this would be in
the best interests of our coun-
try, I believe that the impact
would have been inflationary
and generally devastating to
the consumer.
. - -.The. veto ,power of the,
President is a very important
power and one used sparing-
ly. The framers of our con-
stitution realized that, at
times, the chief executive
might well be able to know of
or recognize problems with
certain legislation. The con-
stitution, therefore, provides
the President the opportunity
to veto legislation and the
Congress the opportunity to
override the veto. However,
it is often difficult for a veto
to be overridden since the
constitution requires that the
Congress, which only needed
a simple majority on the first
go-around to pass the
measure, would need a two-
thirds majority for the over'-
ride. Often, this'forces both
the proponents and op-
ponents of the legislation to
again present their case and
attempt to sway votes.
Int this particular instance,
I believe that the plan to force
energy conservation and raise
additional revenue through
the use of a "fee" levied by
the executive branch was
wrong. The constitution, in
Article I, Section 8, states
that the Congress is responsi-
i ble for levying taxes to raise

revenues. This "back-door"
attempt to do so by the Presi-
dent was a mistake by the Ad-
ministration and was overrid-
den 1y a vote of 335 to 34 in
the House of Represen-
tatives. The Senate acted
similarly on the following day
,and the import fee was disap-
proved by the Congress.
Only the Congress has the
power to levy taxes and, I
believe, each taxpayer is now
carrying a tremendous
burden, especially with the
current inflation. I will con-
tinue to oppose any increases
in taxes no matter what form
they take.

mitted the recipe which
