Come to Agreement


2,000 Miles



by Bicycle to Bar Harbor, Maine


Jan Hammock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bill
Hammock, has just returned from a trip Which many
contemplate, but few ever really do it. She and a
friend, Vicky Fitzgerald, both 22, pedaled their
bicycles from Port St. Joe on a better than 2,000 mile
trip to Bar Harbor, Maine.
TRIP WAS "RECUPERATION"
When questioned as to why the' two decided to
undertake such a journey, Jan answered, "This trip
was a recuperation for both of us from our first year of
teaching". Miss Hammock and Miss Fitzgerald are
both art teachers in Orlando.
.Averaging 80 to 100 miles each day, the pair began
their day early;, consuming a hearty breakfast of four
scrambled eggs, pancakes and the trimmings. Not
stopping for lunch, they nibbled on fruit, peanut butter
and honey before they ended their usual 12 hours of
pedalling to find a place to spend the night. Most of
their nights were spent in campgrounds, a few along
the roadside, and a 'few in motels when the weather
was exceptionally bad. Jan and Vicky were fully
prepared, with sleeping bags, a small tent, collapsible
stove, tools, spare tires for the bicycles, two changes of
clothing, and food for the day. Each girl carried a load
of approximately 55 pounds, which included 22 pounds
of bicycle.
PEDAL 22 DAYS
Jan left Port St. Joe on June 23, meeting Vicky in
Wewahitchka (who pedalled from Panama City), and
they crossed the Maine line on July 25. The trip
actually took 22 riding days, but the girls stopped a day
in Jekyll Island, Ga;, to spend some time at the beach;
three days in Washington, D.C. visiting art galleries;
and four days sightseeing in Pennsylvania. "We
followed the coast to Virginia, then turned back east to
coastline, trying to miss the mountains. The people we
met along the way were all exceptionally nice to us, we
didn't have a single bad experience. The only
protection we took along was a can of "Mace" each.
We never had to use it. I had only one flat on the way,
the result of a leaking valve stem, but Vicky had eight
flats on the 2,000 mile trip." She continued, "The only
thing I would change, when I go again, and I am ready
for another one, would be to cook more of my own
meals, and be less hesitant about asking people to let
Susieamp out in their yards, to save money on camp- :
grounds."
BIKING IS FAMILY LOVE
Biking is a love of all of the Hammock offspring, as
Jan, her sister, Suzanne and her brother, Alan, are
planning to compete in the Sixth Annual Florida 24-
Hoir Classic bike race in Orlando, over the Labor Day,
holiday. The race is a six man relay team, with one
bicycle entered for each team, continuing for 24 hours.
Two years ago, in the Fourth Annual Classic, Jan,
Suzanne and Alan Hammock, and Vicky Fitzgerald,
along with two others, won the event. Biking is a great
way to travel, meeting people and seeing the country,


Jan Hammock, is shown along with her bicycle,
which she rode on a 2,000 mile trip from Port St. Joe to
Acadia National Park in Maine recently. -Star photo
S . Miss Hammock said, -
Mr. and Mrs. Hammock's reaction to the entire
event was mixed. "We were never so glad to see some-
one as when Jan stepped off the plane, returning home.
We couldn't talk her out of the trip, and were really
worried, even though.the girls called home every few
days. We're .not anxious for her to make any more
trips."

READY FOR NEXT TRIP
However, Jan said she and Vicky were already
planning a biking jaunt to, Europe next summer, to
visit all the art galleries on the European continent.


"Allen" Puts CD In Motion"


With hurricane Allen churn-
ing its way into the Gulf of
Mexico, Sheriff Ken Murphy,
acting director of Civil De-
fense in Gulf County, said this
week that the Gulf County
organization was already set-
ting up a hurricane watch to
keep an eye on the storm and
its possible threat to the Gulf
County area.
"There's not much chance
the storm will come near us,


but we're making prepara-
tions anyhow, just in case the
storm comes our way", She-
riff Murphy said. "You can't
tell which way these storms
will turn once they get into the
relatively warm Gulf waters",
he said.
Murphy advised everyone in
the county. to keep abreast of
the latest bulletins on hurri-
cane Alien and be advised of
its progress at all times.


"We have been warned that
with the .unusual weather
conditions we have had this
summer that hurricanes could
be extremely dangerous this
year", Murphy said. He said
he was placing so much
emphasis on the storm watch
this year because of the fact
that much of Gulf County is
extremely low in elevation
and could be very prone to
flooding which major storms


bring with them.
Sheriff Murphy advised that.
residents of the coastal areas'.
Should evacuate if the storm
heads this way. "Ofii only'
evacuation route is Highway:
71, and points of this highway
are just as prone to flooding as
the coastal areas. If we have:
to evacuate, people should get
an early start to avoid being
cut off by a flooded highway
(Continued on Page 8)


The City of Port St. Joe and Town of
Mexico Beach came to an agreement
Tuesday for Mexico Beach to pipe its
sewage to Port St. Joe's Wastewater
Treatment Plant for treatment.
The two communities were at
Sa Mexican stand-off over the price Port
St. Joe said it must charge for the
service, but Mexico Beach, after
conferring with their engineers on the
matter agreed to the price this past
week and agreed to a working
agreement with Port St. Joe.
Port St. Joe Commissioners had
given Mexico Beach a rate of one and
one-half times actual cost of treatment
and bond payments for providing the
service. The rate will fluctuate as


treatment costs fluctuate. The costs are
to be scrutinized every quarter with the
beach community, just as they are now
with the treatment plant's other
customers, the City of Port St. Joe, St.
Joe Paper Company and Sylvachem.
At the present rate of expense,
Mexico Beach will be paying 30 cents
per thousand gallons to have their
sewage treated.
Mexico Beach must operate its own
collection system, treat their sewage
with chlorine and deliver it by pipe-line
to the treatment plant. The city's
responsibility is to accept the sewage
effluent at the plant and treat it
according to state and federal regula-
tions.


Mexico Beach had considered
building a treatment plant along with a
proposed collection system to treat
their own sewage. They were initially
looking at an irrigation spray system,
but have backed off from the idea after
the City of Lynn Haven ran afoul of the
Department of Environmental Regula-
tion with their system. The beach
community has also side-stepped the
idea of building a chemical treatment
system because of the expense involv-
ed.
Mexico Beach will now take the
agreement as an accepted method of
treatment, to apply to federal authori-
ties for grants and loans to install their
sewage collection system.


10th Street Home Yields Marijuana


According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, on Sunday, August
3rd, Deputy James Mock of
the Gulf County Sheriff's De-
jtgartment obtained informa-
tion through a confidential in-
'formant that marijuana was
being distributed at 527 10th
Street in Port St. Joe.
A search warrant was ob-


trained from Judge David L.
Taunton and a search of the
residence was made. Arrested

23, of 527 10th Street, Port St.
Joe. Hall was charged with

juana, and possession of para-
phernalia. Hall was arrested

Jail and will be .arraigned
later today.
Assisting in the search was
Deputy James Mock, Lt. Jack
Davila, Investigator James
Buchanan of the Gulf County
sheriff's Department, and Of-
ficer Bucky Richter of the
Florida Marine Patrol.
According the Sheriff Ken

Editorials and Opinions

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, AUG. 7, 1980


SOur Nation

S For a long time now, our state has been
Largely a bi-lingual state. The influx of Cubans
into the southern half of the State of Florida,
- has caused us to be so. If you go to Orlando or
south, you hear about as much Spanish spoken
- -as you do American. The further south one
S goes, the more marked the situation becomes.
When someone who lives outside Florida
Thinks of Florida, he thinks of Miami. Miami is
Sa natural pattern of what the out-sider thinks
all Florida is like. This has never been so, but
' with the advent of the two-language state in
z the Miami area, it is becoming even more
untrue.
SIf you were to go to Miami today, you
Wouldn't be sure you were even still in the
SUnited States, much less still in Florida. All
Signs of public information are in both Spanish
Sand English. Schools teach in both the English
and Spanish languages. If you go in a public
, building, or just walk down the street, you are
:- more likely to hear Spanish spoken than you
Share to hear English.
S 'One of the scarriest things to do when you
' arrivein Miami is to get in a taxi-cab and hear
the driver talk to his dispatcher or to an
S occasional occupant of the front seat with the
driver, in Spanish. You don't know if they are
Passing the time of day, talking business, or
planning your demise.
Florida has becoine a two-language state,
bit by bit, day by day and Cuban by Cuban.
S Most nations and states require the native
language be spoken in schools, public..
Meetings, etc. Street signs and directions are
� given in the native language. It is understood
That when you go to a different country, a
different language will be used and expected.


lal Language Is English... Not Spanish


Not so in Florida. We have gone to the
expense of catering to the minority language
as if it were just another native language. This
costs the tax payer a lot of money and retards
the process of learning the new language the
immigrant has chosen'to adopt.
Just recently, a lady legislator from
\


Miami, whose name skips our memory at the
present, has introduced a bill to require the
abolition of the two language situation in
Miami and all of Florida.
We hope her bill passes. We hope her bill
draws attention to the fact that we are
becoming a two-language state.


Florida is still in the United States of
America. The United States has adopted
English as its native language. We believe it is
only fair to expect those who come here to live
to learn the language at least enough to meet
their needs, without our nation having to adopt
a second tongue.


The United States is Guilty of "Interfering" in Iran


The papers now read that the Iranians will
continue to hold our American hostages "until
the crimes of the U.S. are exposed."
At first; the Iranians were going, to hold
the hostages until the Shah was returned. His
death has now made this criteria useless.
Just what crimes are we guilty of against
Iran as a nation?
Reading the many in-depth articles about
the Shah, his nation and their relationships to
the United States over the years, which came
out following the Shah's death, we tried hard
to sift out any crimes we had been guilty of
perpetrating in the past.
If we had to list them, we suppose we
would have to plead guilty to aiding the nation
in getting rid of a despot who kept the people in
virtual slavery when the Shah came to power.
We would have to plead guilty to helping the
nation develop its oil industry which today is
financing much of the nation's considerable
budget.
We would need to admit to paying for
revolutions in the nation's education system
which has made it the most literate nation in
the mid-East. We would need to admit to


introducing medical care and practices tb the
nation which has helped to control the many
dread diseases which swept that area. We
stand guilty of helping to develop the nation to
the point of being self-sufficient and able to
resist the greedy advances of other nations: or
it least it has the capability to'do so under the
leadership of a stable government.
We stand guilty of introducing Coca-Cola,


Pepsi-Cola, hamburgers, IBM, automobiles,
TV, hot dogs and bubble gum to what was a;
backward nation.
We're also guilty of protecting them, in
their infancy, from Hitler, Turkey and Russia
and setting them on the road to once more
becoming a semblance of the once-mighty
Persian empire again.
We ought to admit to it.

ALL OF THIS is to say that we have
no choice over our brothers or their
actions. Once they reach the magic age
of 21, there is usually no telling them
just how they will make up their minds
to do something. I found out you have
precious little control over this action at
age 10 or so.
So, it is my belief that first brother
Billy can do anything he wants to,
whether it is legal or not, and the first
big brother, Jimmy, can have very
little to say about it in a decisive way.
Brothers have a way of making up
their own minds, though I will concede
they should consider what affect their
decisions will have on their families.

- have a desire to sell their product
and when sales get slow, they are prone
to reduce the price. �
According to the business section of9
Newsweek magazine this wveek, the
same market forces are beginning to
have an effect on the Arab oil also, with
the spot market almost drying up and a
more generous attitude being taken on
contract prices.
If we can just continue to curb our
appetite, maybe we can continue to
afford to use this dwindling resource at
a reasonable price and even witness a
slow-down in the rate of world-wide
inflation which has been caused by its
leap-frogging price increases in the
past.

-ELECT-


KENNETH


WHITFIELD

Gulf County Property Appraiser
On July 8, 1980, I qualified for the office of Gulf
County Property Appraiser, in order to do this I had to
resign the office of School Board Member District II.
The people of Gulf County honored me with the
privilege of serving in this capacity for 22 consecutive
years.
I was born in Gulf County and by choice, I have
lived ih Gulf County all my life. I am married and the
father of four children. My wife, Marlene, is a teacher
having taught in St. Joe Elementary School and
recently in St. Joe High School. My daughter, Vicki, is
married, living in Texas. My daughter, Kendyl, is
S employed by U. S. Naval Dept., Washington, D.C. My
son, Ken, is in the U. S. Navy now stationed at Jackson-
ville Naval Air Station. My son, Jason, is a sophomore
in Wewahitchka High School.
I was employed by Wewahitchka State Bank for
many, years and as an official of this bank, one of my
duties was to appraise property in all sections of Gulf
County. I feel that I am well qualified for the office of
Property Appraiser.
It is a fact that we have to pay taxes but no one
should have to pay more than their faire share. Com-
plaints have been made in the'past that some assess-
ments were not equal. I cannot speak to this point but I
submit to the people of this county that if I am elected
to this office taxes will be assessed equally and no one
will pay more than their fair share.
This county has several large employers and I do
not believe they should pay all the taxes, only their
fair share. Sometimes I wonder where Gulf County
would be without the jobs provided by these
companies.
S Most of the people in Gulf County know that if
Kenneth Whitfield is elected to this office he will be
available to talk with, they know that he will give
prompt and courteous service. Common sense tells me
that if an individual owns only one lot, the amount of
taxes they would have to pay is just as important to
them as it is to the largest property holders in the
county.
I would be grateful for your vote and would
appreciate any support you could give.

excellent as a container plant
for shaded areas or may be
planted in the soil. The dwarf
variety, Ardisia japonica, is a
low growing plant that is
suitable for groundcovers in
shaded areas. It ordinarily
does not flower or berry.
The holly fern is an excel-
lent plant for moist, shaded
areas. It is evergreen and
withstands extremes in temp-
eratures. It may be used
where a ground cover is
needed or in combination with
other plants in shaded areas to
give a tropical effect. It should
be planted in frent of the
larger growing plants that are
used in the area.
Aucuba japonica leaf colors
range from solid green to a
variegated green and gold.
This plant will ordinarily grow
to a height of three to four feet
and is an excellent evergreen
to use in shaded areas where a
spot of color is needed.
For a larger plant, the
oakleaf hydrangea is difficult
to surpass. This shrub will


grow to a height of ten or more
feet. It loses its leaves in
winter and the red stems with
peeling bark are an accent in
the landscape. It ordinarily
flowers in April or May, with
large panicles of white flowers
that remain showy for one or
two months. The flowers when
old, turn brown and are
excellent to use in indoor
arrangements.
Flowering annuals are diffi-
cult to grow in shaded areas.
One of the best for summer
color is the Impatiens. They
come in a wide range of lower
colors, from orange, orchid
and pink to rose, salmon,

65,961 Visitors


At State Park


Despite rising travel costs,
visitation at Florida's state
parks remained relatively
stable during the fiscal year
just ended. The parks attract-
ed 11.5 million visitors com-
pared to 11.8 million during
the previous fiscal year -'. a
drop of only 3 percent.
More visitation by area and
state residents'is one of the,
factors that offset the decline
in out-of-state visitors, accord-
ing to Ney Landrum, director
of the Division of Recreation,
and Parks, Florida Deiiat-

Camping in state parks
followed a similar pattern,

this year are Bill Antley and
Mrs. Zola Taylor for White
City.
The honorary chairwoman
for this state-wide program is

tance with the Bike-A-Thon

cystic fibrosis is threatening
the lives of nearly 30,000
youngsters throughout the
United States. She expressed
her sympathy for the nearly
1000 children in Florida who
suffer from cystic fibrosis.
"We can help fight this
mysterious disease by sup-
porting the 1980 Bike-A-Thons
in Gulf County. These Bike-A-
Thons are being held simul-
taneously all across the state
of Florida. "I was amazed to
learn that one out of every 1600
children born in Florida will
have CF", Mrs. Lloyd said.
Mrs. Lloyd added, "The Bike-
A-Thon in your town will
provide hope to almost 100
children who are suffering

blocking the path of retreat."
Yesterday, the storm was
off the coast of Jamaica which
is south, south-west from Gulf
County.
The Civil Defense director
said people could prepare for'
the storm seasonby laying'in
a supply of batteries for lights
and radios, a supply of canned
foods and secure all unused
outside objects which are not
being used so it could not blow
around in a storm.
As a storm approaches he
advises, filling clean contain-
ers with water, haul boats out
of the water, keep your car
filled with gasoline and keep
posted on the storm's location.
As a storm hits he advises
keeping away from coastal or
low-lying areas, secure all
loose material which might
blow and be dangerous to
people and property, be alert
for falling trees, fallen wires
and flash flooding.
Above all, Murphy advises
evacuation of this area if the
storm or any other storm
heads in this direction.

missioners of Gulf County,
met May 20, in special session
with the following members
present: Douglas C. Birming-
ham, Chairman, William R.
Branch, and Jimmy 0. Gort-
man. The Clerk and Sherriff
were also present.
The meeting came to order
at 4:00 p.m.
The Board directed that the
Administrative Assistant and
County Engineer make a
study of the White City and
Beaches proposed water and
sewer systems as to the cost of
updating the latest report in
order to see if these systems
can be funded.
Mr. Frederick M. Roche,
Certified Public Accountant,
of the auditing firm of May,
Zima, and Company, was pre-
sent to discuss the terms and
.condition of his audit pro-
posal. After lengthy discus-
sion, there was a motion by
Commissioner Branch, sec-
onded by Commissioner Gort-
man, and it was unanimously
carried, that the County enter
into a contract or agreement
for said firm to perform the
required County audits for the
years 1979, 1980, and 1981. The
Chairman and Clerk were
authorized and directed to
execute an agreement on
behalf of Gulf County.
The Administrative Asiss-
tant recommended the Board
approved Sunnywood Estates
Subdivision. The Board unani-
Smously accepted said sub-
division, recorded- in Plat
Book Three, Page Eight.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Gortman, sec-
onded by Commissioner
Branch, it was unanimously
carried to grade the road
leading to Viola Rouse's home
in the Methodist Hill area of
Wewahitchka.

business, the meeting ad-
journed.

The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
met July 8 in regular session
with the following members
present: Douglas C. Birming-
ham, Chairman, Jimmy 0.
Gortman, William R. Branch,
James L. Tankersley, and Leo
:Kennedy. Others; present
were: George Y. Core, Clerk,
Jerry Gates, Deputy Clerk,
K.E. Murphy, Sheriff,-William
J. Rish, Attorney, Tommy
Pitts, Administrative Assis-
tant and Lloyd Whitfield,
Road Superintendent.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. The Attorney
opened the meeting with pray-
er followed by the pledge to
the flag.
The minutes of May 20 and
June 24, were read, approved,
and adopted.
Pursuant to invitation to
receive sealed bids to sell the
County one chassis-cab truck,
the following bid was re-
ceived, to-wit: St. Joe Motor
Company, $9,419.60. This price
is subject to price changes. It
was pointed out that a 160.8
inch wheelbase would only be
available in a 1981 model,
which is not in production at
this time. Upon recommenda-
tion of Mr. Oscar Redd, Wewa
Ambulance Chief, and Mr.
Tommy Pitts, Administrative
Assistant, the Board tabled
this matter until such time a
firm bid can be made on the
exact required wheelbase.
The Board having adver-
tised to receive sealed bids for
the installation of railroad
crossing signals with gates, to
be installed at Avenue A, Port
St. Joe, no bids were received.
The Commission waS advised
that because no bids were
received, this project could
proceed on an emergency
basis by obtaining quotes on
prices. The Clerk reported
Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road Company has quoted a
price of $37,766.21, with gates,
and $28,777.33, without gates,
and that they would split the
cost with the County, making
the County's costonly $18,883.-
10. There was a motion by
Commissioner Kennedy and it
was seconded by Commission-
er Tankersley, and unani-
mously carried, to accept the
above offer and authorize the
signal with gate be installed.
Mr. Marion Craig, resident
of St. Joe Beach, requested the
County to consider changing
the name of Santa Anna Street
in Port St. Joe Beach to some
other name that would be in
continuity with names such as
Magellan, Balboa, Columbus,
DeSoto. Cortez, Ponce De.
Leon, etc., all of which are
street names in St. Joe Beach

and all having the meaning of
them of an explorer of noted
flame, dating back into the
history of our country. He said
that the name if Santa Anna
represents a violent Mexican
military general that exploit-
ed, killed, burned, and utterly
destroyed communities in the
southwestern part* of the Unit-
ed States. He suggested that
the name Santa Anna is an
insult to the citizens living in
St. Joe Beach. After discus-
sion, there was a motion by
Commissioner Tankersley,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, to change the name
of Santa Anna Street to that of
Santa Maria. Motion pass
unanimously.
C.W. Brock, Property
Appraiser, appeared before
the Board to discuss the 1980
tax roll. He told the Board that
he requires an increase in his
present budget for necessary
expenses for the balance of
this fiscal year. He then pre-
sented his proposed supple-
mental budget in the amount
of'$15,000.00. He also present-
ed his 1980-81 proposed budget
in the amount of $90,727.00, Tn
discussing these two requests,
Mr. Brock said his supple-
mental request for the present
budget is necessary in pro-
ducing a 1980 tax roll; that if
the Countycould not fund the
$15,000, ihe would borrow the
funds from the State, which
would be repaid from his next
fiscal year budget. He said the
Department of Revenue is
requiring him to update the
tax roll, as required by the
statutes, and that hefinds the
records are not complete. He
said it will take'the additional
funds to complete them to the
point that a 1980 tax roll Can be
produced.
Commissioner Branch sug-
gested the Appraiser complete
the 1980 tax roll without
employing extra personnel;
that this Commission is confi-
dent that he can do this to the
full satisfaction of thO Board
and the Department of Reve-
nue. He said it is the thought of
the Commission that the new
appraiser who will be elected
in the upcoming elections will
have sufficient time to put the
records in order before the

Commissioner Kennedy re-
minded the Board of its policy
to reduce County expenditures
rather than increase them and
said that the Governor of the
State of Florida had requested
all counties in the state to hold
a tight line on expenditures in
order to curb inflation.
Mr. Brock informed the
Board that the Department of
Revenue requested him to
increase the 1980 tax roll by
twelve million dollars, which
will require an extensive
study and additional work to
accomplish.
Whereupon, the Board un-
animously agreed to write to
the State Department of Reve-
nue and advise them this
Commission has no intention
of repaying a loan in this
matter, if such a loan is
actually made, but that the
Department is requested to
assist the Appraiser in com-
pleting the 1980 tax roll by
assigning its personnel to do
some of the extra work in
bringing the records up to
date, as has been done in past
years.
The Board then considered
the Property Appraiser's pro-
posed budget for the fiscal
year 1980-81. It 'was the
decision of the Board that it
could not approve this budget,
which includes an 89 percent
increase over the present bud-'
get. The Chairman was re-
quested to write a letter to the
State Department of Revenue
advising that the Board will
not approve the proposed
1980-81 budget and to request
said department to reject said
budget; that if an increase is
allowed in said.budget, it be
held within the 8 percent
limitation, the same as all
other budgets for the next
fiscal year.
The Board approved the
item to item budget amend-
ments in the Property Appais-
er's budget for the 1979-80
fiscal year. A copy of said
budget amendment is on file in
the Clerk's office.
Mr. Charley Gramling pre-
sented a preliminary plat of a
proposed subdivision in the
area of the Hanlon Sub-
division. The Board gave its

tentative approval, subject to
all conditions in the stb-
division being met prior to
filing for final approval. Mr.
Gramling asked for a vari-
ance as to the street paving.
He said that he will have such
a few lots in the subdivision
that it is not economical for
him to pave the street, he
further informed the Board
that he was ready to file his
subdivision plat prior to the
requirement of paving streets,
but because the County Road
Department had constructed a
ditch on his property, he found
it necessary to hold up on
filing his plat. Commissioner
Gortman stated he was re-
sponsible for the ditch being
placed on the property; that
e understood a sixteen foot
easement had been granted by
Mr. Grambling and his wife,
but he later learned the
Gramlings had refused to give
me easement and at that time
issued orders to correct this
by covering the ditch. Mr.
Gramling said that because
the County had put a ditch on
sixteen feet of his property,
causing a delay in filing his
plat, the Board should take
that fact in consideration in
his application for a variance.
After further discussion,
there was a motion by Com-
missioner Tankersley, second-
ed by Commissioner Gort-
man, to advertise for a public
hearing on the question of
whether or not to grant a
variance in this case. Vote:
Aye- Tankersley, Kennedy,
Branch, and the Chairman.
Nay - Gortman. Commission-
er Branch asked that the
record state that the ditch
matter had no bearing what-
soever on his vote.
Mrs. Verna Totman, Direc-
tor of Energy Crisis Assis-
tance Program, was present-
ed by request of the Commis-
sion for a discussion of said
assistance program.
Bill. Schlickman, owner of
Gulf Breezes Camp Grounds,
discussed traffic and sanitary
conditions on the beach in the
area of his camp grounds. He
told of the danger of speeding
vehicles in areas where
adults and children are play-
ing on he beach and he asked
that this condition be correct-
ed. The Board ordered the
road Department to install
speed signs and garbage cans
in the areas mentioned.
The Road Department filed
a copy of a letter to one of its
.employees disciplining him
for abusing the sick leave
policy and how the majority of
the County employees appear
to be misusing it. It was
decided that the Board must
correct this matter if the
necessary, continuity of work
can ever be accomplished.
Every Commissioner being in
agreement that the sick leave
policy is only intended to be

building.
Mr. R.E. Bellows, Jr., re-
quested the County by letter to
provide ingress and egress to
the back lots in St. Joseph
Shores Subdivision. The Board
agreed thatbecause there has
never been a street in this
subdivision and no one has
ever lived on the back lots, the
county cannot construct or
open a street toan area that is
not already being used by the
public.
The Office of Secretary of
the Treasury, Washington,
D.C., advised the Board that.

before Congress at this time.
The Farm Agent filed his
.report for June.

negotiations with the land
owner of the proposed site of a

five year lease, with a six
month cancellation clause;
the owner will allow only a
ramp and garbage cans; that
access to the site will be via
Butlers and from no other
direction and a hold harmless
.,agreement will be needed.
The Attorney then advised
the Board that if the question
of creating new fire districts is
to be on the ballot in the first
primaries, it is now time for
the Supervisor to make her
recommendations to the
Board.
The Mosquito Control Super-
visor presented his detailed
work plan budget for the
1980-81 fiscal year in the total
amount of $165,406.57. The
Board tentatively approved
this budget.

tant reported that the bridge

sisted that' the electors be

cussed the problem of utilities

point and then respraying it on
the return trip to SR71. He
said-,this request was before

President Carter announced
July 28 a major boost in
federal price support loans for
corn, wheat and soybeans. His
action came three days after
the Senate approved identical
increases as part of a child
nutrition bill.
The plan sets up a hew
"two-tier"system of crop loan
rates:'T4e first kindapplies to
regular loans on crops held by
farmers for indefinite periods
of time. The loan rates
for wheat, which take effect
immediately, will jump from
$2.50 to $3.00 a bushel. For
corn the price will increase
from $2.10 to $2.25 a bushel,
and for soybeans from $4.50 to
$5.02 a bushel. The new rates
for corn and soybeans take
effect Oct. 1st.
The second type, farmer-
held reserves for specific
periods, will receive higher
loan rates of $3.30 a bushel for
wheat and $2.40 a bushel for
corn. Soybeans are not part of
this program.
Under the former system,
loan rates were identical for
regular loans and for farmer-
held reserves.
U.S. Senator Dick Ston
(D-FL), member of the Senate
Agriculture Committee, had
cosponsored the proposal in
the Senate.
