Snipers Zero In On Sylvachem Plant

Two Attacks Damage Vital Portions of Operation

Snipers have zeroed in on the struck Sylvachem plant
here in Port St. Joe and opened fire on the tall oil installation
three times during the past week. The latest sniping attack
took place about 1:30 in the morning Tuesday of this week,
when three of five rifle shots penetrated a fractionating
tower in the plant, shutting down operations for a few hours.
According to local plant manager, the first shooting
occurred during the night on Monday of last week, but these
shots did no damage to the plant. "We heard the explosions
and thought it was firecrackers going off at first," Bennett

went through the structure early Tuesday morning.

Rains Soak Port St. Joe

Heavy rains hit the Port St. Joe area last week, dumping
6.75 inches on the city and its surroundings during the week,
according to Mrs. Emily Simmons, The Star's source for
precipitation action.-
Mrs. Simmons said her rain gauge showed that the 29
hour period from Wednesday noon of last week to 5:00.p.m.,
Thursday, 5.2 inches of rain fell," with over four inches
coming down early Thursday morning. Prior fo Wednesday
of last week, the area had received nine-tenths of an inch of
rain and had an additional .65 inches from Thursday
( afternoon to 5:00 p.m., Friday.
It was a wet week definitely breaking the drought which
the intense heat of the two previous weeks had brought to the

said, "but we later learned they were rifle shots.
Three days later, the snipers were at work again and this
time, put two holes in a Dow Therm heating unit, vital to the
plant's operation. This attack shut the plant down for 43
The struck plant is being operated by supervisory
Charlie Morris, vice president of the Sylvachem firm
said "The attacks have to be by someone who is
knowledgeable about the plant because they are aiming at
our weakest points".
Local union president, Samuel Stallworth told The Star
Tuesday, "We certainly are not advocating this type of
activity as a union. We're not supporting it, we're not
encouraging it and I hope none of our'people are responsible'
for it."
Stallworth and his union had pledged to operate a
non-violent strike when they went out in the first week in
Morris labeled the shootings as, "reckless, irresponsible.
*We;re shocked that such a thing could happen here," Morris
? said the attack Tuesday morning started a small fire in the
\ plant which was quickly put out by immediate reaction by the
personnel in the plant. Morris said one of the men inside the
plant was standing not 20 feet from where the bullets struck
the tower Tuesday morning. "He could have easily been
hurt"; the vice-president said. "He didn't have much margin
for safety."
As a result of the. shootings, Gulf County Sheriff Ken
Murphy has called on the services of the Florida Departinett
of Law Enforcement to send in trained investigators to ty
and find the persons responsible for the attacks. The
arrived on the scene this week and were in on the
investigation of Tuesday's shooting.
Murphy told The Star Tuesday investigators found four
spent rifle cartridges near the railroad tracks which run
about 100 yards from the points where the shots hit plant
facilities. "We didn't find the fifth shell casing", Murphy
said. "It must still be in the gun."
Sheriff Murphy said he and Deputy Mark Tolliver went to'
the scene of the shooting immediately after it was reported
and found the place from where the shots were fired. "We're
investigating every avenue of the affair along with the FDLE
men", Murphy said.
: Sylvachem's workers are out on strike because of
disagreements over salary, retirement, vacation,/ overtime
and length of contract matters. According to Stallworth,
., there are no plans to resume broken off negotiations in the
near future. "We're ready to talk at any time; but her�s" no
use in us just meeting to be meeting", he said.
Stallworth said it .was still the intention of the union to
conduct a non-violentstrike and they would not condone such
actions as have been happening this past week.
Sylvachem, in the meantime, has gone to court and
received an injunction against the unions for using undue
tactics in the strike.
The injunction mentions such tactics as "defaming,
threatening, intimidating, impeding free access, damage to
vehicles through placing of nails, spikes or other object in the
Meanwhile the strike continues with the unions' pledged
to peaceful activities. The plant managers, however, are still
wary of what might happen in the future.

Policeman Charged

By State's Attorney With Count

ofBurglary of A Structure

S'he State Attorney's office is
preparing papers to charge a Port St.
Joe police patrolman with burglary of
a structure, according to Wayne
White, an investigator with the
Panama City-based office.
White told The Star Tuesday
afternoonthat the office has finished
filing papers and turned them over to
the courts, charging Port St. Joe
policeman, David Rogers, with the
White said the action developed
.after St. Joe Auto Parts Company was
robbed of over $100 sometime after
closing time Thursday night of last
week and opening time Friday
White said the owner of the firm,
Dick Lamberson, came down to his
place of business early Friday mor-
ning around 6:00 a.m., planning to'
meet a companion to take a fishing
trip. Lamberson went into the buil-
ding and found officer Rogers inside.
Rogers told Lamberson he had found
the back door to the building open and
he was investigating for a possible
Sheriff Murphy said investigation

showed Rogers reported he had found
the large loading door at the. rear of.
Lamberson's firm open at the bottom
by about six inches and had opened
the door and gone in to investigate.'
The doors opened into a security
cage inside the building where the
firm gets freight delivery from their
warehouse during the middle of the
night. The gate inside the security
cage had been forced open, gaining
entry to the main part of the building.
Lamberson said he didn't feel
right about the explanation and took
his thoughts to Sheriff Ken Murphy.
Sheriff Murphy called in investigator
White on the case for further
White agreed that something
didn't seem right in the case and
called Rogers in for questioning.
White said he confronted Rogers with
the evidence he had compiled after
nearly a full day of investigation and
told the officer he was going to ask for
a Capias for his arrest.
During the meeting with White;
Rogers, who was on duty at the time,
received a call and left the meeting.
He hasn't been seen or heard from

by local authorities since.
Port St. Joe Police Chief Roy
Robinson said Rogers didn't pick up
his pay check for the week, which he ,
normally does Friday afternoon. "He
was supposed to report for work
Saturday morning, but he didn't show
up", Robinson said.
Tuesday, Rogers was officially
removed from the city Police De-
partment force. "We terminated him
for not showing up for work three days
in a row for the timebeing. After his
case has been studied further, we will
take another look at the release
papers," Robinson said.
White said since a police officer is
involved, the state is filing charges
direct rather than using local agen-
cies for the complaint filing. "Our -
office has made the charges arid the
matter is now before the court-for
approval or disapproval". White said
he expected to have the courts
decision yesterday afternoon or.
Rogers has been with the Port St.
Joe Police Department for the past
three years, employed as an investi-

Shrimp Boat Impounded by Sheriff

The 75 foot shrimp boat
"Lady Stewart" was seized
last week by the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department, accord-
ing to Sheriff Ken Murphy.
The one year old shrimp boat
was out of Steinhatchee, and is
believed to have brought a
load of marijuana to the

Northwest Florida area.
Officer Bucky Richter of the
Florida Marine Patrol and
Customs Patrol Officer Dewey
Collier attempted to board the
vessel tied up at the Highland
View Canal to perform a sea-
food quality control inspec-
tion, when they observed what

appeared to be marijuana
debris on the deck. Based on
this information, a search
warrant was obtained from
County Judge David L. Taun-
ton, and members of the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department,
Florida Marine Patrol, Cus-
toms Patrol, and State's Attor-

ney officers boarded the ves-
sel for a thorough search.
The crime lab from the De-
partment of Criminal Law
Enforcement was asked to
process the vessel and enough
debris was found in all sec-

Bus Won't Run Anymore

Trailways Leaving the Driving to You

Trailways' agent, Don Durham, closes the freight
compartment door on one of the last buses through Port St.

Joe, as veteran driver, H. H. Fisher prepares to depart.
-Star photo

Those fellows who have been
saying, "Leave the driving to us", want
you to do your own driving from now on.
After today, there will be no more
bus service through Port St. Joe. Those
who now use the service for their
transportation or shipping packages,
will have to look for other means of
providing this service,
Trailways, which has operated a
bus service in and out of Port St. Joe for
more than 30 years, is pulling out of the
route. Today is the last day of bus
The company presently operates
one bus through the city. It leaves
Tallahassee each morning at 8 and
makes its way to Panama City around
the coast, where it turns around for the

return trip to Tallahassee.
A spokesman said Trailways is
closing the route because it hasn't been
paying for itself. Steve Tanner, re-
gional director based in Atlanta, said
Trailways has wanted to close the route
for a long time but the Florida Public
Service Commission would not let the
company discontinue service.
But the bus and trucking industries
were deregulated as of July 1 and
Trailways immediately moved to close
the route.
"It's simply a lack of ridership,"
Tanner said. "We'll service any area
that indicates a need."
He said his company needs 16 or 17
riders on the 46-passenger bus to break
even and that the Tallahassee-Panama

City run only averages two or three
passengers a day.
One of the big problems with the
bus service closing will be shipments of
fast freight in and out of Port St. Joe.
Many local businesses and industry
used the service for over-night ship-
ments of needed parts, merchandise,
Station manager, Don Durham said
the company does a lively business of
shipping packages in and out of Port St.
Meanwhile, Tanner, in Atlanta,
said his company would not start the
route again unless it seemed that there
would be enough riders to make it.



Editorials and Opinions




It's Sad That We Have People Who Do Such Things

S' When the strike at Sylvachem first
s -tarted, the unions going out on strike
, promised a peaceful exercise of their right to
S.disagree with the company in this manner. We
.-. .believe they still have these intentions, in spite
S of what has happened during the past week.
We, along with the a major portion of the
community deplored the fact that Sylvachem
k felt it necessary to bring in their professional
- security corps to protect their property. We
, didn't disagree with their right to bring in the
Security force, but we deplored the fact they
3 felt it was necessary here in peaceful Port St.
� Joe.
S We think Sylvachem found the move as
Distasteful as anyone else, including the
. striking unions. It meant they had to go to
'.considerable expense, an ingredient which is
%-.: ";plaguing any manufacturing concern these
S days, since it has the effect of pricing them out
of the market against smaller or larger
S domestic firms and against the products of
,foreign producers using labor which has no
guarantee of livable wage supports as does
' labor here in the United States.

. We do not blame the organized union or
striking members for the sabotage which has
hit the local plant during the last week. There

is no doubt that the sabotage comes from the
climate caused by the strike, but we do not
believe it is the union members of Sylvachem
endorsing the actions which have caused them
to be performed.
Nevertheless, they have come about.
Shooting into an inhabited area is dangerous
to life and limb as well as to property. The two
bullets which put holes in the Dowtherm unit
at Sylvachem last Thursday night, could just
as well have ricochetted off and killed or

wounded one or more of the men inside the
plant. This results in serious charges against
the one who fires the shots. Again, the shots
could have caused an explosion which might
have damaged the plant to the point where the
strikers would not have had a job to return to
once the strike is over.
We have faith it will be over one day.
Evidently, the Sylvachem management
knew something we, the general public or the
strikers didn't know when they hired the

security force.
We regret that they needed it. We regret
that it has apparently been proven they
needed some sort of security beyond what they
normally provide at the plant.
The shooting has definitely harmed the
union image here in this area, even though we
reiterate we don't think they had a thing to do
with it. They could help immeasureably in
trying to find out just who was responsible,

Billy Provides Excuse For Dumping His Brother

It seems just a little too pat to us that the
subject of Billy Carter and his dealings with
the Libyans should come at precisely this
time. Maybe we are getting just a little
suspicious in nature here in our middle age,
but to come up with a startling revelation of
something which has been with us for over a
year right at the eve of the Democratic
convention seems just a little too contrived to
Billy Carter has been playing footsie with
the Libyans since before he took the cure for
his drinking, but all of a sudden we are

beginning to make a federal case out of
something which should have been taken care
of more than a year ago. It also seems the
prime movers in "bringing the situation out
into the open" seem to be those who would like
to see Ted Kennedy as the Democratic
standard bearer this year.

The papers over the week end were full of
stories which dealt with the "possibility" of a
move at the Democratic Convention in favor
of Kennedy (number one) Mondale (number
two) or Muskie (number three) as the

Democratic presidential candidate this year,
solely because of the involvement of first
brother Billy with the Libyans.
It all seems more like taking advantage of
an opportunity than righting a wrong to us.
We agree that Billy should not be involved
to the extent he is with the Libyans,
considering their attitude toward us, but
neither do we believe in withholding an
activity damaging to our nation until the
opportune time to make it public and make
noise like we want something done about it.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY. JULY 31, 1980


Juvenile Charged with Store Theft

A joint news release from
Sheriff Ken Murphy and Chief
of Police Jonathan Glass of
Wewahitchka stated that the
night of the 24th of July, the
Dixie Dandy store in Wewa-
hitchka was broken into. The
break-in was discovered by
Chief Glass.
While the owner was trying

to determine what was miss-
ing, Chief Glass apprehended
a 17-year-old juvenile from
,Wewahitchka driving a 1978
Ford van which he had
allegedly just stolen from
McGlon's Amoco Service Sta-
tion. The juvenile was arrest-
ed.by Chief Glass, at that time
carrying a concealed weapon

and grand theft. The conceal-
ed weapon had been stolen
before from Fico Farms.
The juvenile was charged in
the burglary of the Dixie
Dandy Food Store. Lewis
Wright, age 20, was also
charged with accessory to the
burglary of the Dixie Dandy.

Three six packs of beer,
hidden in the woods behind the
store, were recovered.
The investigation revealed
that on the same night, the
Wewahitchka Elementary
School was broken into and
several hundred dollars worth
of equipment was taken and
stashed nearby. The same

juvenile was alleged to be
responsible for this burglary
also. Almost all of the proper-
ty has been recovered.
Chief Glass was assisted in
the investigation by Investiga-
tor Charlie Hill, Lt. Jack
Davila, and Deputy Bobby
Bagby, all of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department.

Gaskin Arrested for Theft Of

Television from Wewa Home

Darrell A. Gaskin, age 20,,
of Kinard, was charged last
Thursday with burglary of. a
dwelling, it was announced by
a joint news release from
Sheriff Ken Murphy and Chief
of Police Jonathan Glass of
Wewahitchka. The charge
stemmed from an incident
which occurred at the Edward

Jackson residence on Blue
Gator Road several weeks
ago, in which a 12" television,
valued at $150, was stolen.
Gaskin allegedly sold the
television the same day that
he burglarized the dwelling.
He was arrested in Kinard and
brought to the Gulf County

Jail and arraigned before
Judge David L. Taunton. Bond
was set at $750.
Chief of Police Jonathan
Glass of the Wewahitchka
Police Department and De-
puty Bobby Bagby of the Gulf

The S

summer Berry Pie-

If pie lovers in the family know no season for their
favorite dessert, take heart this summer. You can create
a sensational pie without baking if you plan ahead. Double
Berry Pie is sure to be your cleverest trick. Just keep these
staples on hand: a package of lemon.flavor gelatin, frozen
whipped topping and a baked graham cracker crumb crust.
A time-saving ice cube method hastens thickening of pre-
pared lemon flavor gelatin before thawed frozen whipped
topping is blended into it. After the mixture is chilled,
fresh strawberries and blueberries are folded in. Spoon
into a pie crust and all will be ready to serve after about
2 hours chilling. Now you can bring home the best of the
berries fora refreshing "impromptu" pie!
1 package (3 oz.) lemon flavor gelatin*
2/3 cup boiling water
2 cups ice cubes
1 container (8 oz.) Cool Whip non-dairy whipped
topping, thawed
1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 baked 9-inch graham cracker crumb crust, cooled
*Or use peach flavor gelatin and add 1/2
teaspoon cinnamon with the whipped topping.
Dissolve gelatin completely in boiling water, stirring
about 3 minutes. Add ice cubes and stir constantly until
gelatin is thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove any
unmelted ice. Using wire whip, blend in whipped topping;
then whip until smooth. Fold in berries and chill, if
necessary, until mixture will mound. Spoon into pie crust.
Chill 2 hours. Garnish with additional fruit, if desired.

cantly over the past year.

Clinic has also experienced
dramatic increases in the

There were no service cate-
gories which decreased last
In explaining these in-
creases, Ailes said, "This ap-
pears to be a trend for the

in service in every one of the
Clinic's 12 years of operation

with very sharp increases
during the past three years.

Be Prepared In Event of A

Hurricane; Use Checklist

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1980

While there is nothing any-
one can do to move a house out
of the path of a hurricane,
there are steps that can be
taken to protect life and limb
and reduce damage.
The following information
should prove helpful in the
event that hurricane strikes.
In the event that a hurricane
whips into an area with its
destructive winds and heavy
rains, there are certain things
residents can do in the hours
before the storm arrives.
-Leave low-lying areas
that may be swept by high
tides and waves. If your
escape route is over a road
likely to be covered by water
or likely to be congested, don't
delay evacuation any longer
than necessary.
-If you live in a mobile
home, check your tie-downs
and leave for more substantial
shelter. If your mobile home
can be moved, it should be
taken to a safe area. Damage
can be minimized by securing
Mobile home with heavy
: e anchored in concrete
-Moor your boat securely
or move it to a designated safe
-Board up your windows or
protect them with storm shut-
ters or tape. Some suggest
that a window on the side of
the building opposite the side
from which the wind is
blowing should be left slightly
Secure all outdoor objects
that might be blown around.
This includes garbage cans,
garden tools, .toys, signs,
porch furniture and other
seemingly harmless items
that can become missiles of
Destruction in a hurricane.
Also make sure that garage
doors, awnings and storm
shutters are secured. Roof
antennas should be removed
or lowered.
-Have at least one flash-
light in good condition, with
extra batteries readily avail-
-Check your transistor
radio. This may be your only
link with the outside world for
Some time. It will keep,you
advised of .the storm's pro-
y ess. Also it will help dispel
Wrny rumors that might deve-
. -Stock a generous supply of
drinking water in clean bath-
tubs, jugs, bottles, and cook-
ing utensils in case there is
contamination of your area's
water supply. Have extra
canned goods and non-perish-
able foods on hand.
-Cars should be fueled
since service stations may be
inoperable for several days. If
possible, your vehicle should
be moved out of the path
where flooding may occur.
-If you rely on medicines of
any kind, make sure that an
extra supply is on hand. In
case of a catastrophe, all
available drugs and materials
will be used for care of the
-Remain at home, if possi-
ble. Take no unnecessary
risks. Stay away from exposed
windows and glass doors. If
your home has an 'inside'
room stay there during the
height of the storm.
-Remain indoors. Travel is

Net Income

Florida National Banks of
Florida, Inc., today an-
nounced that net income for

was $4,089,000 or $.55 per
share, as compared to
$3,893,000 or $.52 per share for
the quarter ended June 30,
1979. Net income for the six

a year earlier.
Total assets as of June 30,

1979. Total deposits as of June

year earlier which represents
an increase of $113 million,
This increase in deposits was

especially dangerous when
winds and tides are whipping
through your area.
If your home, apartment or
place of business has been
damaged, here's what to do:
-Make temporary repairs
to prevent further loss from
rain,, wind or looting. Ex-
penses of such repairs are
covered by most insurance
policies, so save all receipts
and statements.
-Contact your company or
agent as soon as possible. If
you must leave your home,

It's almost football time
again, though it's hard to
believe. One usually asso-
ciates football with chilly
weather, sweaters and over-

been that lately.
However, it's time for those
boys wishing to play football
in the fall to get their physical

-Be patient. Insurance re-
presentatives will first settle
hardship cases. Also remem-
ber that policy forms differ, so
don't assume that your settle-
ment will be the same as tnat
of your neighbor.
Great care should be taken
if you're going outside or
cleaning up after a storm. For
your own safety and that of
your family, here are some
things to remember:
-Beware of loose or dang-
ling power lines.
-Walk or drive carefully,
especially along debris-filled

for physical.
The Junior High team play-
ers are to have their physical
Thursday and Friday, August
7 and 8, at four p.m. The first
20 boys to show up each day
who have not had physical
will be given physical until
all the potential players have
been checked.
It is stressed that any boys
who do not come during the
designated days and time will
have to pay for their own

streets. Snakes, poisonous in-
sects and washouts on roads
and bridges are among the
dangers you may encounter.
-Check for spoilage of any
food you might have had re-
frigerated, particularly if the
power was shut off for more
than a few hours.
-Make sure the drinking
water is safe before using it.
Finally, remember that
your entire community has
been affected by the storm, so
it will take some time to
return to normal operations.
Be patient and cooperate with
police and emergency person-

For veterans thinking about

examiner Determines Death Cause

Dr. Ed Keilman, a Pathola-
gist from Fort Walton Beach,
who serves this district as a
state Medical Examiner,
spoke to the Port St. Joe
Rotary Club last Thursday,
telling them of some of the
experiences he has encounter-
ed in his service as a medical
examiner and of experiences
of others.
Here in Port St. Joe, Dr.
Kielman is on the staff of the
Municipal Hospital, where he
oversees procedures in the lab
and examines removed tis-
sues, determining if their
removal was necessary and
the condition of the tissues.
Dr. Keilman pointed out
that Medical Examiners in the
State of Florida differ from
the old Coroner system. "A

Medical Examiner must be a
P biologist by Florida law,
ur. Keilman. He may have an
M.D. working under his direc.
tion, but the Pathologist must
take the responsibility for any
decisions made.
Dr. Keilman pointed out,
"Death is a medical thing and
Coroners were just not trained
to determine causes of death."
The Medical Examiner is
charged with examining all
homocides, suicides, criminal
abortions, and other causes of
unusual death. They also
examine and issue proper
medical. certification for all
accidental deaths, deaths
from unusual diseases, etc.
The speaker pointed out that
all deaths from automobile

accidents in which a person 15
years of age and over are
killed, it is a law that a
blood-alcohol test be made.
Dr. Keilman said that some-
times the examinations his

office is charged with per-
forming turn up evidence that
what was .thought to-be a
normal death was actually
homicide. "Just like Quincy",
he quipped.

Q. My husband, four kids
and I spend- a month each
summer in a lake cottage. I
get no'vacation from my
usual jobs, while everyone
else plays full time. Can you
help me simplify the chores
so I too'can "play"?
J.K. Memphis, Tenn.
A. 1. Many mothers "vaca-
tion" your way. How about
striking? Make it a sit-down
strike. Demand that every able
,* family member' share the
work. Specify jobs each can
handle; cooking, cleaning,
laundry, bed making, dish
washing, shopping, etc. Dad
can master the grill, so can
older children. Quite young
children can tote, shuck corn,
empty trash, etc.
2. Use convenience
3. If eating out is too
costly, buy a fast-food main
course now and then. Add
some simple foods.

ables, fish, cheese and
desserts. (Toast slices of
bought angel food or pound

5. Let children prepare
and proudly serve some no-
cook desserts.
Q. My definition of a
friend is one who gladly takes
my surplus zucchini. A res-
taurant here serves elegant

Zucchini Timbales. They will
not give the recipe. I hope
you have one to share.
M.F. Clayton, Wash.
A. Indeed it is that time
again. Too bad bountiful
zucchini and pumpkins can't
be used to make gasoline and
oil. This recipe is from my
Savers- Series Something
Special Cookbook.
Zucchini Timbales

2 cups grated zucchini

large bowl mix zucchini,
cheese, onion, crumbs, salt

Morrell said the bill contain-
ed three major provisions: an
eight percent cap in county
spending, a $25,000 homestead
exemption on city and county
taxes, and increased "truth in

Governor Graham wanted
to keep the cap at five percent,
as he had last year, Morrell
said, but SACC and other
lobbyists managed to get it
raised to eight.

Jam Begins With Paired Pears

Among the rewards of "putting up" fresh Pear Jam is the,
delicious eating experience. Muffins and morning toast take on
new appeal with homemade jam. Select fresh pears at the mar-
ket; jot down on your shopping list a package of Sure-Jell fruit
pectin. It's the commercial pectin that supplements fruit's
natural pectin to be sure of a good "set." It's your choice to
add allspice, cloves and cinnamon in combination or just one
to the prepared fruit. Earmark a few jars for deserving friends.
It's called "giving eating pleasure year 'round."
Pear Jam
4 cups prepared fruit 1/2 to 1 teaspoon each
(about 3 Ib. fully ripe ground cloves, cinna-
pears) mon and allspice'
2 tablespoons lemon juice (optional)
5 cups (2-1/4 lb.) sugar
1 box (1-3/4 oz.)
powdered fruit pectin
First prepare the jars. Wash, scald and drain jars and lids; or
use automatic dishwasher with very hot rinse water.
Then prepare the fruit. Peel and core about 3 pounds pears.
Chop very fine or grind. Measure 4 cups into very large sauce-
pan. Add lemon juice and spices.
Then make the jam. Measure sugar and set aside. Mix fruit
pectin into fruit in saucepan. Place over high heat and stir
until mixture comes to a hard boil. Immediately add all sugar.
Bring to a full rolling boil and .boil hard minute, stirring
� constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam with metal
spoon. Ladle quickly into jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of top.
Wipe tops and threads of jars with clean damp cloth. Cover with
two-piece lids, following manufacturer's directions. Process
in boiling water bath for 5 minutes, timing when water returns
to a boil. Cool, test for seal and store. Makes about 7 cups or
7 (8 fl. oz.)jars.

County Officers' Salaries.
Since last year's salary ad-
justment of elections super-
visors' salaries, a $4,300 in-
crease, studies were made
which showed that the duties
of tax collectors, property
appraisers, court clerks and
sheriffs had also increased.
The Legislature raised their
salaries by five percent and
granted a $2,000 incentive for
them to attend training pro-
grams approved by the state.
Transportation. The Legisla-
ture agreed that much-more
revenues were needed to
provide for the maintenance
of roads alone but because of
the election year, it refused to
increase road taxes, Thomas

session after November,- he
Dual Taxation. Due to the
efforts of SACC and others,
Thomas said, only one of four
pieces of dual taxation legisla-

a county has a dual taxation
problem and wants to correct
it by remitting funds to a city,
it can do so. And that city may
remit the money to its citi-

needed, county commissions
had been responsible and
granted one", Morrell said.
"There are exemptions possi-
ble for counties facing major
new expenditures like county
jails and from state mandated
programs, new or old."
"The homestead exemption
was designated to offset in-
creases in taxes homeowners
would experience from the
enforcement of 100 percent
assessment levels", Morrell
said. He added that because of
the drop in tax revenues
anticipated from the $25,000
homestead exemption on
school taxes passed by voters
last March, the new eyemp-
tion would be staggered over a
period of three years: $15,000
the first, $20,000 the second,
--and $25,000 the third year.
"A constitutional amend-
ment is necessary first, how-
ever, and it will be put to the
voters on, the October 7'
ballot", Morrell said.
To combat the recent peti-
tion drive by county property
appraisers which if passed
would keep assessments at the
65 percent statewide average
and limit county spending'to

legislators created a stipula-

amendment in November,
they won't receive the home-
stead exemptions, Morrell
SThe third provision of the
bill strengthened the law re-
quiring public hearings and
newspaper advertising of bud-
gets and tax increases. City
and county commissions will
now have to also mail to every
taxpayer a letter explaining
how much and why their taxes
went up, Morrell said. The
SACC supported that, he said,
because it will help to educate
voters of the real reasons
behind a tax increase.
Because of the workload
placed on property apprais-
ers in raising assessments,
Morrell said, they have been
granted possible extensions of
the usual July 1 submission to
counties of certified millages.
But the bill provides, Morrell
said, if worse comes to worse,
counties can meet their Octo-

that have received extensions

You Can Discourage Burglars

Many people think of the
summer months as a time
for having fun and taking
vacations. Unfortunately
some consider the season an
excellent opportunity to
burglarize temporarily va-
cated homes. The Insurance
Information Institute warns
that national crime statistics
show August to be the most
active month for burglars in
the United States.
SAccording to FBI crime
statistics, the South reported
31 per cent of all the burg-
laries in the U.S. during 1978
the most recent year for

which figures are available.
Other FBI figures show.that
65 per cent of all burglary
losses that year were resi-
dential. There also has been
an increase in daylight
break-ins. FBI statistics
show an overall increase of
10 per cent in daytime resi-
dential burglaries from 1974-
In Florida there were 170.-
061 burglaries during 1978,
the FBI reported. At an
average loss of $526 per
break-in, Florida property
owners were ripped off for
more than $89 million that

year by uninvited house
To keep burglars from do-
ing well at your expense, the
Insurance Information Insti-
tute suggests adding these
steps to a pre-vacation
check list. Lock all windows
and doors, including those in
the attic, garage and base-
ment. Deadbolt or double
cylinder locks are your best
safeguard. Windows also
should be secured. Don't
leave extra keys in obvious
places such as under a door-
mat, over a door or in the
mailbox. Make sure your

home retains a "lived-in"
appearance. Discontinue de-
liveries of mail, newspapers
and milk. Arrange to have
the lawn mowed, and circu-
lars removed from the pre-
mises. Leave the home
lights burning. Automatic
timing devices are an excel-
lent investment. As a pro-
fessional burglar put it: "I
won't take a chance on a
timer even if I see it. Why
take a risk when right down
the street some fool hasn't
got one?" Lock all ladders
up out of sight. Don't publi-
cize your vacation. Society or

family pages often advertise
the trips Floridians will be
taking. And burglars read
the newspapers. Don't talk
about your vacation to stran-
gers. Ask a neighbor and
local police or the sheriff to
keep an eye on your home.
Leave a key with the neigh-
bor so he can inspect your
home periodically and vary
the position of blinds, shades
and drapes. Tell police how
long you will be gone, who
has a key to your house and
where you can be reached.
Store valuables in a safe or
safety deposit box.

Farmers who accurately
report crop acreages and sign
up to participate in the farm
program are not only eligible
for'price support benefits and
; deficiency payments, but are
also eligible to receive disas-
ter protection..

The 1980 program provides
for disaster payments to help
farmers whose crops are
severely damaged by weather
conditions, according to Leslie
Cobb County Executive Direc-
tor of the Agricultural Stabili-
zation & Conservation Service

(ASCS) office.
"Farmers who plant within
their normal crop acreage
(NCA) are eligible to receive
disaster payments based on a
higher target level than those
who exceed their NCA," he
Wheat and feed grain pro-
ducers whose crop yield is less
than 60 percent of, the estab-
lished yield times the acreage
planted for harvest may re-
ceive disaster payments on
the production losses below 60
percent. For rice and upland
cotton producers, this pay-
ment is based on production,
losses below 75 percent.
"County .farmers should
notify our office if they expect
low'yields on their feed grain
crops due to severe weather
conditions," according to Mr.
The ASCS official said farm-

ers should notify the county
office before harvesting or
destroying acreages, or re-
planting to other crops when a
disaster strikes. Accurate
acreage and production re-
ports must be maintained to
assure full program benefits.
The program offers crop
protection against drought,
flood, hail, windstorm, insect
infestation, plant disease or
any other type of disaster
which occurs through no fault
of the farmer.

provisions may be obtained
from the local ASCS office, at

The airplanes were obtained
through a Federal Grant and
are to be used for traffic
control only except in cases of
"All pilots are volunteers
chosen from uniform troopers
.who already have a pilot's
license and require only a
minimum amount of train-
ing," said Colonel Eldrige
Beach, Patrol Director.
Fixed wing aircraft such as
those operated by the patrol
can operate much cheaper
than helicopters over the long
distance involved in statewide
traffic control. With fuzzbus-

ters and citizens band radios
being used extensively to
avoid speeding arrests, the
additional aircraft will make
the trooper's job of enforcing
the traffic laws much easier.
Several years ago, one of the
patrol's pilots was killed when
a U.S. Navy plane on a low
flying mission collided with
the FHP plane.
"Enforcing the law can be a
dangerous job, on the ground
or in the air," said, Beach,
"but we are fortunate to have
men who are dedicated and
have the desire to patrol our
highways and protect the
motoring public from drinking
drivers and reckless drivers."

Registration for Draft

I am pleased to observe the
initiation of draft registration
proceedings throughout
America. The Executive
Order issued by President
Carter and supported by
Congress is an essential step
toward illustrating to the
world our philosophy of
peace through strength.
The Congress recently ap-
proved H. J. Res. 521, a joint
resolution making additional
funds available to the Selec-
tive Service System for the
administration of draft
registration, which began on
July 21st and will continue
through August 1st. All
young men who were born in
1960 or 1961 are required to
register. I sincerely hope that
all eligible young men in
Northwest Florida, as well as
throughout the country, par-
ticipate in the draft registra-
tion. Although the penalties
are not quite as stiff for those
who fail to register as they are
for those who avoid an actual
draft, I strongly support the
swift and stern imposition of
these penalties on those who
fail to register. Draft registra-
tion is a vital part of our ef-
fort to strengthen U.S.
military preparedness.

Too Much Rain Not All Bad
If you thought we have had too much rain during the past
two weeks, it's because you just forgotten what you do with
too much rain. The Star photographer caught this two pair of

feet, with small boys on the other end, using the results of too
much rain to the fullest advantage. Everyone has known at
one time in his life that you are supposed to squeeze the mud
from too much rain between your toes. There's nothing like
it. -Star photo
