County Schools Open



W itir 2,334 Pupils"


As predicted, Gulf Schools opened smoothly Monday
morning, and classes are now underway in earnest. The
schools reported 2,334 students showed up for the first
day, 33 less than were present on the first day last year.
According to Mrs. Dot leavens, in the school
administration office, the census usually picks up
considerably after the Labor Day holidays.
When the final count was tallied Monday morning,
Wewahitchka Elementary School had 473 pupils;
Wewahitchka High School had 375; Port St. Joe
Elementary School, 550; Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School,
744 and Highland View Elementary School,, 192.
: The schools in the county will have their first holiday
of the new school year Monday of next week, when they


will be out for Labor Day.
The only flaw in the school operation this early in the
year seems to be a bridge at Indian Pass, which is
presently under construction.. School buses cross the
bridge four times each day, and the driver is concerned
.whether the temporary bridge is safe for the large school
bus to traverse. School and County officials were looking
into the matter yesterday and will make some
recommendations after an on-sight inspection.
The bridge, on Indian Pass road, is being replaced
with a new one, scheduled to be in place in four to six
weeks. The road is now open with a temporary by-pass
bridge which the bus driver seems to think may be too
narrow for the school bus.

harvesting a large crop of marijuana found growing north of Wewahitchka last
week. In the photo below, the Sheriff, Ken Murphy, and Deputy Jack Davilla
(on the ground) unload some of the harvested weed at the Sheriff's office for
storing as evidence.


4 Men, Shrimp Boat Seized


Four people are being held
in the Gulf County jail on
bonds of $10,000 each and
charged 'with conspiracy to
import marijuana. The four
are Robert Wayne Hicks, age
24, of Highland View, Donald
Rhames, age 19, of Highland
View, Robert Clayton, age 49,
of Port St. Joe, and Stephen
Bass, age 26, of Wewahitchka.
A warrant has been issued for
Daniel Stewart, age 21, of
Steinhatchee, Florida, who is
being held by federal authori-
ties in Santa Rosa County.
According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, the charges are a
result of investigation of a 75
foot shrimp boat named
"Lady Stewart", which was


seized by the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department in the
Highland View Canal on July
19 of this year. At that time, a
small amount of marijuana
was found on board the boat.
"Our investigation reveals
that the "Lady Stewart" left
Port St. Joe on July 5, went to
Discovery Bay in Jamaica,
picked up 11 tons of mari-
juana, returned to a pre-
designated area just off Shell
Island, was met there by two
vessels, which picked up the
load. We suspect a portion of
the load was picked up in
Walton County and a portion
in West Bay," Sheriff Murphy
said.
The "Lady Stewart" re-


turned to Port St. Joe on July
16.

Pot Patch Plucked


According to Sheriff Ken
Murphy, 366 stalks of mari-
juana were pulled up Friday
afternoon in the woods north
of Wewahitchka, around the
county line. Estimated street
value of the marijuana was
$130,000. The two fields were
located by Sgt. Marty Martin
through information furnished
by an informant.
"No arrests have been
made, yet; however, we have
some good leads," stated


Sheriff Murphy.
The marijuana is being held
in the maximum security unit
at the Gulf County jail and will
be destroyed when it is dry
enough to burn.
Assisting in' the harvest
were members of the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department,
Florida Marine Patrol, U.S.
Customs Patrol, Game and.
Fish Commission, and States
Attorney's Office.


Strikers


Go Back


to Work

As The Star was hitting the
news stands last Wednesday
afternoon, telling of a meeting'
by operating unions of Sylva-
chem going into a meeting to.
take a vote on a contract offer,
the unions were casting their
votes in returning to work,
ending a strike which has been
experienced at the tall oil.
plant for the past 12 weeks..
About 5:30 p.m., Wednes-
day, the unions agreed to
return to work, ending their
walk-out which had seen vir-
tually no negotiating talks
between the union and the
company for the entire strike
period.
The agreement ended what
was a peaceful walkout, ex-
cept for four occasions, which
saw four incidents of shootings
in connection with the work
stoppage. The union leader-
ship expressed as much dis-
may over the shootings as the
company did, and continued to
express their desire for and
worked for a peaceful strike
and settlement. -
The union workers returned
to their jobs on Monday
morning of this week with the
morning shift, and the plant is
now operating smoothly, ac-
cording to both union and
company officials.
Oscar Redd, a committee-
man for the union told The
Star, "We received less than
what we were asking for, but
everyone is fairly satisfied
with our new contract. We

County Maneuvered Well In River Dredging Deal

to the sportsman in his small boat, they are
not so great we can't live with it.
We think the County Commission was
right in holding out for the clearing out of the
small streams past dredging operations have
stopped up. Not only is this desire on the
part of the Commission ecologically sound,
but it also provides more access to fishing
grounds for the sportsman and makes him
more tolerant of the river traffic created by


the commercial and industrial operations
along the river.
Cooperation and close vigilance to what
is going on can preserve the river for the
most favored use of both parties to the
benefit of both, as well as maintain the food
chain in Apalachicola Bay which has been of
much concern in the past.
We are ecologically minded in that we
believe all these resources should be used,


but not destroyed. They should be available
to the public but their use managed in such a
manner so as not to destroy them for
anyone.
It's to the Commission's credit that it
could adequately protect the interests of Gulf
County and its people while still managing to
bring about a condition in which others could
realize their desires for the river and its use
also.


Don't Forget to Take Down Those Political Signs


While we are proud of our County
Commission for standing up for what Gulf
County should have in a recent confrontation
with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and
the State of Florida, we are still- pleased the
Commission finally persevered and came to
an agreement with the agencies. for a
dredging plan for the Apalachicola River.
We feel that with local input, an
expression of local feeling and local opinion
,being considered, the river can remain
useful for everyone who needs and desires its
services and use.
Local sportsmen desire the services of
the river to pursue their pleasureable
pastime of fishing, hunting and boating and
'the water freight people desire the use of the
river to transport their cargoes on.
There is no need for either group to deny
the use of the river to the other for their
purposes. There is enough river for everyone
to have his slice.
We have always advocated the double
use of the river. The water-freight activity
builds our area and increases the number of
jobs available through the transportation
system, loading and unloading cargo and the
commerce such cargoes generate for the
counties along the river. The river and its
freight traffic have caused several new
.industries to locate on its banks or near its
waters, providing jobs in places where there
were no jobs.
Use of the river for freight.' has also
expanded the small grain farming operations
of -north Florida, as well as south Alabama
and Georgia to dimensions never dreamed of
before.
While the tug boats and their tows going
up and down the river are a minor nuisance.


on the road side. We hope all our politicians
will vow with themselves to take their signs
down when this election is over.
We understand their exuberance in
trying to get elected. Anyone who would get
out and gad about the countryside in this
hot weather, truly wants to get elected.
Too, the salaries paid all elective offices in


Gulf County these days, make them some-
thing to go after in earnest. They are worth
the effort, monetarily.
By the time the primaries are over the
weather should be a little cooler. Maybe it
will be just a little more pleasant, so far as
the temperature is concerned, taking them
down than it was putting them up.

Dear Sir:
Did you read Ann Lander's
column regarding people

social no-no and even referred
to them as "clods".
It seems to met to be tragic
that anyone would advocate
: putting a bit of weeding and
housework ahead of friend-
- lines. My mother had an
open-house policy regarding
hospitality. Whenever anyone
dropped in for a visit she


ker attended two semesters,
studying for a degree in
Christfan Music, dedicated its
yearbook to him in a two page
spread in the book.
Parker transferred from
Auburn University to Mobile
College after he felt the call to


welcome
would say "Glad you dropped
in.. I am just going to make a
pot of tea.. how do you like
yours?"
If we gain a well manicured
garden and spotless house at
the expense of enjoying the
niceties of comradeship and
hospitality, then we have
indeed paid a.high price.

According to the Television Commercials, Our Marriage Is Doomed


IF YOU CAN ACCEPT the life-
- style portrayed by TV commercials as
being the normal way in which people
react, behave and live, then I guess
my marriage with Frenchie is in
trouble.
I thought we were. getting along
: just fine. Here we've been married,
now, for 34 years and she hadn't gone
home to momma but once and that
was because "momma" wanted to
dress her down for the way she was
: treating me and summoned Frenchie
: to her kitchen for a tete-a-tete.
Since that time, Frenchie has
pretty well shaped up and treated me
fairly well. She's still a little late
: sometimes, bringing the paper to me,
so I can get it read in-the morning
before I have to get up; but all in all,
she does pretty good since
"momma" got on to-her.
-: + + +
:. STILL, I THINK we must be in
trouble. We haven't talked divorce.
We haven't even talked, separation.
' We still sleep in the same bed and use
the same bathroom.
But, we must have a problem
somewhere, if TV commercials depict


the normal way in which married
folks live.
THE BATHROOM is one of our
problems.
I don't remember when Frenchie


and I have last stood in the bathroom,
early in the morning, side by side,
smiling (at that time of day?),
hugging and kissing and. get this.
. comparing mouthwashes!
We just don't compare mouth-
washes, in the bathroom or anywhere
else.
TV would have us believe that all
happily married couples discuss freely


the merits of this mouthwash over
that one. There are no hang-ups about
mouthwash with happily married
couples.
As a matter of fact, we hardly
ever meet in the bathroom in the


the current line of detergents. Here's
just another small facet of our
marriage which has irretrievably bro-
ken down. We just don't relate over
detergents.
Detergents just don't fit into our


f: Wesley R Ramsey
.


morning any more, for any reason.
There must be some latent joy in
meeting in the bathroom in the
morning and comparing mouthwashes
before you start the day, but we have
let it slip by.
AS OF LATE we have also quit
meeting in the laundry room and
discussing the power and gentleness of


scheme of things anymore.
We still use them, you understand.
They go into the washing machine and
get the clothes clean, but it has been
many a day since Frenchie and I have
stood side by side in the laundry room,
detergent box in hand, for a serious
talk about detergents and argues with
one another about which temperature
to set the washer on.


Another chink in the solid wall of
our marriage.
I CAN'T REMEMBER when the
last time was that our sink stopped up.
I do remember that we didn't go all
goo-goo with one another, she holding
the can of drain opener while I happily
poured it down the drain just so I
could listen to the water go gurgle,
gurgle, gurgle, when the drain opened
up.
-As best I remember, when our
drain last stopped up, we both became
very short tempered. The nasty water
ran over into the cabinets and made a
soggy mess underneath. I was elected
to clean it up and this brought on
more sharp words for Frenchie not
being able to look through those
cabinets and see that water pouring
into the bottom. I said something
about how it looked as if she did it all
on purpose. She had a few choice
words for me, too, but I have
mercifully forgotten what they were.
Maybe this ability to forget unpleasant
things is all that has kept the split
from coming as yet.
Anyhow, we didn't grab the liquid


plumber and feel glad all over
because the sink had stopped up and
we had the chance to use it.
After bailing out of the mess, we4
called Mr. Beaman.
How unromantic and uncoopera-
tive with one another can you get? I
tell you, our marriage is not long for
this world.
I'M ASHAMED TO admit it, but
Frenchie has never brought me a bar
of deodorant soap while I was in the
shower and slyly hand it to me behind
the curtain so I wouldn't stink later on
in the day after I had sweated for a
while.
I don't know if she just doesn't
care whether or not I stink, or we
don't have any of that particular kind
of soap, or maybe this is just another
sign that our marriage isn't sound.
She just doesn't care how I smell; she
doesn't plan to get close to me,
anyhow.
I don't see why we need Ned
Ailes: TV commercials are enough to
make one start exploring the solidity
of his married life without paying a
psychologist.

With election only a little less than two
weeks away, the politicians are beginning to
heat up their campaigns. There is hardly a
day goes by lately but what there isn't a half
dozen or so hopeful candidates parading
through our door wanting something or other
they feel will enhance their chances at
getting elected.
We don't know when we have seen so
many signs throughout the county, expousing
this candidate or that one. Almost every one
of the many who are running have at least
one sign put up somewhere or other. As a
matter of fact, they are getting so plentiful
one lady called the office the other day and
asked if there wasn't some way to keep the
signs from being put up."There's getting to
be too many of them", she said.
Politicians have put up signs for their
candidacy since politicians first started
running, we suppose. Politicians haven't
always -taken down these signs after the
election is over, leaving the countryside
spotted with election signs which are left to
deteriorate away and leave an unsightly blot

pastor of the Long Avenue
Baptist Church since October
1, 1953, will preach his last
sermons at the church Sunday
before stepping down in retire-
ment.
Speaking words of apprecia-
tion and well wishes for the
future were, Congressman
Earl Hutto, Dr. J. K. Solomon,
Rev. Sidney Ellis, Billy Joe
Rish, Walter Wilder and Fred
Witten. Witten, .deacon chair-
man of the church, served as
master of ceremonies at the
services.
Congressman Hutto spoke of
a long friendship with Odum
and his support in prayer and
encouragement for all men in
government office. "Rev.
Odum has probably written
letters of encouragement to
public officials than any other
man in Florida", Hutto said.,
Dr. Solomon praised the
retiring pastor's efforts in his
association. Rev. Sidney Ellis
spoke of the pastor's stabiliz-
ing influence and encourage-
ment to other ministers in the
community. Rish read a reso-
lution passed by the City
Commission last Tuesday,
praising the pastor -for his .
support and civic activities in
'the community. Wilder pre-
sented the minister with a
plaque of appreciation for his
counsel and interest in the
schools and young people of
the area'.
Dr. B. G. Hickem, assistant
to the executive director for
Florida Baptists gave a short
address, exemplifying the
pastor as the example any.
minister could follow in be-
coming a true "servant ,of
God".
After the services, which
were attended by some 450
people, a reception was held in
the church social hall.
During Odum's pastorate
here, the church has added
1,011 to its original 44 charter
members. Many of these have
moved away through the
years. The church now has a
membership of 385.
Odum came to the young
church, five months-'after it
was organized in 1953, and has
been the only pastor the
church has ever had.
Odum's replacement, Rev.
Ted Corley, will preach his
first sermon in the church on
Sunday, September 7.

"All of us are equal in some
things and not in others", he
said. "We're all equal in the
amount of time he has. 'Now'
is the only time you own. The
need now is to find time to do


what's important."
Johnson advised the Rotar-
ians to write down, every day,
the 10 most important things
you have to do in a day. "Find
time to do these things, then
use the rest of your time
electively", he advised.
"When you have something to
do. do it now", he advised.


Johnson pointed outs that
Rotary was the oldest, largest,
fastest growing and most
exclusive club in the world.
Guests of the club Thursday
were Dr. Richard Morley and
Judge Larry Bodiford of Pan-
ama City, Carl Guilford and
Rev. J. C. Odum, of Port St.

Roger Bennett, local plant
Manager said, "We're glad
it's settled and are pleased
S that the people are back at
work".
Bennett said, "The com-
pany is satisfied with the

of the men, who have returned.
.Their attitude seems to be

ject much desired by Franklin
County.
Birmingham told the Board
Tuesday night, "Rather than
hold up a project which our
neighbors want, I told them
we would give our approval.
for the dredging so the money
would be released". the
chairman went on to say, "We
need to put a proviso in our'
resolution of approval that if
the funds are not released for
the estuarine sanctuary by
September 30, our resolution
is null and void".
The Board agreed to the
proviso in the resolution
which, in effect, tells the
Corps to "Put up or shut up."
WEWA AMBULANCE
In a second effort'to pur-
chase a truck chassis to
replace a defective chassis the
county had purchased for the
Wewahitchka Ambulance
Squad a year and a half ago,
the County turned down the
two bids received Tuesday
night and decided to follow
another route to relieve the
situation in the north end of
the county.
After the bids were received
'and studied, Wewahitchka
Squad Chief reported to the
Board that delivery date on
both chassis bid was so far in
the( future, "I can see where
we will be out of business for
another six months getting the
new vehicle on the road."
Redd then' suggested that


since the second vehicle in
Wewahithcka was now several
years old and had many miles
on it, the Board declare an
.emergency and replace the
old ambulance with a new one
immediately and replace the
ailing chassis at a later date.
"The old ambulance is also
getting to the point where it is
causing repeated probler.ns,
too", Redd said. The vehicle
was purchased when the coun-
ty first got into the ambulance
business four years ago.
The Board voted to honor
Redd's request and instructed
the Squad and Tommy Pitts to
secure prices and call the
Board together for an emer-
gency meeting.
The Board also agreed with


a suggestion from Commis-
sioner James Tankersley that
the older vehicle in Port St
Joe needed to be replaced in
the new budget when it is
drawn up in December.
RESOLUTION
Rev. J. C. Odum, retiring
pastor of the Long Avenue
Baptist Church in Port St. Joe
was honored by the Board for
his past 27 years of service to
his church, the county and the
community. County Attorney
Billy Joe Rish, in reading the
resolution, read that "the
entire county appreciates the
example and influence" of the
retiring pastor over the past 27
years.

Marijuana


(Continued from Page 1)
marijuana was estimated to
be 8.8 million dollars. More
arrests are expected in the
very near future.
The confiscation of the
vessel and the subsequent
arrests were the result of
investigation by the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department,
U.S. Customs Patrol, Florida
Marine Patrol, Game and
Fish Commission, and States
Attorney's office.
"Local, state, and federal


agencies estimate that only 10
percent of the marijuana
being imported into the United
States is being apprehended,"
Sheriff Murphy said. "We are
unsatisfied with this low per-
centage and we are determin-
ed through a cooperative
effort of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department, U.S.
Customs Patrol, Florida Ma-
rine Patrol, Game and Fish
Commission, and States Attor-,

percentage for Gulf County."

Catch


Ronnie Raffield, one of the fishing
Raffield brothers; "caught" this old
anchor and chain in his nets last
Thursday and sort of wished he hadn't.
The old anchor and chain tore up a


'Big 'Un"
perfectly good net for him. Raffield
said he hung the old anchor near the
Sea Buoy in the Gulf of Mexico near
where a tug boat went down in the
middle 1800's. Raffield said he didn't


know whether or not the anchor came
from the sunken tug but said the design
of the anchor has not been in use in
many years. Raffield said he pulled the
anchor up from 28 feet of water. In the
picture above, the anchor and its
attached chain is being hoisted up by a
wench truck. Raffield hopes to restore
the anchor and chain, -Star photo

Adult Inst


Different]

The Gulf County Adult Insti-
tute is different. How is it
different? A person coming
into the Adult School might
wonder if it is a school. There
is no teacher standing up in
front of a class with every
student in the same book, at
the same place. Instead, the
students are working on the
subjects and skills that each
needs to complete require-
ments for high school certifi-
cation. Some students will be
working in math, some Eng-
lish, others learning to read
better, and the teacher will be
going from student to student
to give the help needed in their
particular subject.
A student sets his own study
speed. There is no certain
time limit put on a learning
activity. When the pupil and
the teacher are satisfied that
that particular skill has been
mastered, the student goes on
to new activities.
The Gulf County Adult Insti-
tute is prepared to, take a
student where ever he is in his
schooling and build from
there. If the student has been
in high school his high school
records are evaluated and his
course of study planned out.
If the student lacks the skills


itute Is


In Concept

to perform the task called for
in the courses, the adult school
teacher gives him materials to
learn that will then enable him
to succeed with his school
work. Every adult school
student is in an individualized
program geared to his needs
and aims.
The student does not have to
pay for his instruction but he
must put in the time and effort
to complete his course given
by the Gulf County Adult
Institute.
Any adult in Gulf County
interested in the high school
completion program or infor-
mation about other courses
sponsored by the Gulf County
Adult Institute may call 227-
1744.

The Board of County Com-
mission met August 1st in
special session with the follow-
ing members present: Chair-
man Douglas C.. Birmingham,
Leo Kennedy, James L. Tank-
ersley, William R. Branch,
and Jimmy 0. Gortman. Also
present were Finance Officer
Jerry Gates and Sheriff Ken
Murphy.
The Meeting came to order
at 6:00 pm. Commissioner
Gortman opened the meeting
with prayer and led the pledge
of allegiance to the flag.
The Board discussed Gover-
nor Graham's newly adopted
truth in taxation (trim) bill
and the problems it had
caused with approval of tax
roll by the Department of
Revenue. The Board also
discussed the proposed consti-
tutional amendment on the
October ballot that would
increase the homestead ex-
emption and possible effects it
might have on property taxes
and the budget to be adopted.
Finance Officer Jery Gates
said that he, Commissioner
Gortman, and Commissioner
Kennedy had attended a
meeting in Blountstown on the
trim bil and it was pointed out
that after the trim bill was
passed the legislature realized
that it had caused local
governments tremendous
problems in adopting their
budgets. He said the legis-
lature then reconvened for a
special session and amended
Florida Statute 200.065 to
allow local governments to
readopt its prior year adopted
final budget and expend
monies based on said budget
until such time as its tentative
budget is adopted. After dis-
cussion, Commissioner Gort-
man then moved the Board
adopt the same budget as the
previous year on a temporary
basis and begin work on the
new budget as soon as the tax
roll was complete and the
constitutional amendment in-
creasing the homestead ex-
emption had been voted on.
Commissioner Kennedy sec-
onded the motion and it passed
unanimously.
There being no further
business the meeting was
adjourned.
The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met on July 22 in
regular session with the fol-
lowing members present:
Douglas C. Birmingham,
Chairman, Jimmy 0. Gort-
man, William R. Branch, Leo
Kennedy, and James L. p ank-
ersley. Others present were:
George Y. Core, Clerk, K. E.
Murphy, Sheriff, William J.
Rish, Attorney, Tommy Pitts,
Administrative Assistant, and
Lloyd Whitifield, Road Super-
intendent.
The meeting came to order
at 7:00 pm. The Attorney
opened the meeting with pray-
er.
The minutes of July 8th,
were read, approved, and
adopted.
Whereupon, the Board hav-
ing advertised for a public
hearing to consider the ques-
tion of exchanging property in

Douglas Landing Subdivision
with Edward Brown, the
Chairman called for objec-
tions. There being none, there
was a motion by Commission-
er Branch, seconded by Com-
issioner Gortman, and it was'
unanimously carried, that re-
solution 80-13 be, adopted. A
copy of resolution 80-13 is on
file in the clerk's office.
The Board having advertis-
ed for a public hearing to
consider the question of clos-
ing, vacating, and abandoning
certain streets in St. Joseph
Shores Subdivision, the Chair-
man called for objections. No
objections were forthcoming..
Commissioner Branch discus-
sed the need to hold two public
hearings on all actions dealing
with closing streets or roads.
He then moved this matter be
considered for final action at
the next meeting of August 12,
and that in the future this
Board will have two hearings
on all matters pertaining to
closing streets and roads, one
morning meeting and one
evening meeting. Motion sec-
onded by Commissioner Gort-
man and unanimously car-
ried. The Chairman ordered
this hearing continued to
August 12th for final consider-
ation.
Leroy Causey informed the
Board the County is taking
some of his property in paving
the Burgess Creek Road. He
said the paving contractor has
cleared about thirty feet of his
front yard; that he is asking
the County to pay him for this
property or to purchase him
an equal piece on the north
side of his property, but that if
the County will provide a
public boat landing on the
creek, he will donate the
property to the County. It was
reported to the Board that the
engineer has checked the title
to this property and found that
Mr. Causey's property only
runs to the section line. Mr.
Causey then said the section
line is not where the engineer
says it is, but that it is in
another location which was
established by a court order.
After discussion, the Chair-
man asked Commissioner
Gortman and Tommy Pitts to
check this out and bring a
recommendation to the Board.
Oscar Redd, Wewa Ambu-
lance Squad Chief, informed
the Board that the bids can
now be obtained for the
purchase of one new chasis
cab truck, 11,000 lb. GVW. The
Board ordered that a notice be
advertised for this equipment,
bids to be received on August
26, at 7:00 pm.
Garrett Walton, Attorney
representing the owners of
real estate located on St.
Joseph Peninsula, advised the
Board that an auction will be
held on July 28, for the sale of
property. He said that if the
property is sold in 100 feet
strips running from the high-
way to the Gulf, a plat will be
filed according to the County
Plat Ordinance, but if the
property is sold in one or two
,tracts, there will be no need to
file a plat because those
purchasing the property will
filing their ownpIat, if they
decide to subdivide it. He then
filed copies of a survey
showing a proposed sub-
division of his land and stated
this was information in order
that the Board understand the
intentions herein. The Chair-
man thanked Mr. Walton for
this information.
J.L. Todd Auction Company
notified the Board of its
intention of holding an auction
sale of property located in St.
Joseph Beninsula and that if
plats are later filed, the
County subdivision ordinance
will govern.
Mark Hannon informed the
Board that he now has a.
supply of water that can be
approved by the Department
of Environmental Regula-
tions; that this is the last


condition before final ap-
proval of Cape Breezes Sub-
division. He then requested
final approval of said sub-
division. There was a motion
by Commissioner Branch,
seconded by Commissioner
Kennedy, and it was unani-
mously passed, that Cape
Breezes Subdivision be ac-
cepted and approved for re-
cording, subject to the Ad-
ministrative Assistant receiv-
ing official approval of the
water supply by the State
Department of Environmental
Regulations.
Charles E. Carroll, repre-
senting the'Gulf County Labor
Council, informed the Board
as to certain problems involv-
ed in a. strike at Sylvachem
Corporation. He stated a very
bad situation has been created
by the company when they
brought in Wackenhut, a de-
tective or law enforcement
firm to protect the plant; that
everyone in labor in this area
resents this act because there
is no need for detectives or
lawmen to be involved and if
there was a need of this type,
Gulf County has a good
Sheriff's Department that can
handle any situation. After
further discussion, Mr. Car-
roll requested the County to
intervene in this matter and
request Sylvachem to remove
Wackenhut from the scene.
Commissioner Branch stated
that he has lived in Gulf
County 46 years and he has
never known of a situation
where a Wackenhut tupe
agency was needed. He then
recommended this Board go
on record as opposing the way
Sylvachem has handled this
situation; that this situation
was peaceful until Wackenhut
came into the picture. There
was a motion by Commission-
er Branch, seconded by Com-
missioner Kennedy, and it was
unanimously carried, that the
Chairman write a letter to
Sylvachem asking that Wack-
enhut be relieved of any
further involvement in the
strike.
Ed Leuchs, Director, Apa-
lachee Regional Planning
Council, presented the Gulf
County Comprehensive Plan
as prepared by the Gulf
County Planning Council with
technical assistance from the
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council. He then explained the
ten steps in adopting this plan
which will take at least five to
six months. The Board thank-
ed him for his efforts in
producing this document. Mr.
Leuchs told the Board that
much credit goes to Mr.
Tommy Pitts, the Administra-
tive Assistant, for many hours
of hard work assisting in
collecting the necessary data
that was required and he
congratulated H.W. White,
Chairman of the Gulf County
Planning Commission, and his
members for leadership in
producing this Comprehensive
Plan.
Don Johnson, Administrator
of the Community Develop-
ment Block Grant Program,
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council, advised the Board as
to this program. After discus-
sing this program, the Board
requested him to work up a list
of possible program that Gulf
County would be eligible to
apply for.
Doyle Stewart, employee of
the County Road Department,
discussed the possibility of
county employees becoming
eligible to join the Tyndall
Federal Credit Union. He
presented a letter from said
Credit Union advising what
must be done in order for this
to be accomplished. One pro-
vision is that this Commission
must make such a request to
the Credit Union and be
willing to make payroll de-
ductions. There was a motion
by Commissioner Gortman,
seconded by Commissioner
Branch, and it was unani-
mously carried, that the

County request membership
and payroll deductions are
authorized.
Reginald L. Tisdale, County
Engineer, reported on the
progress of the paving pro-
gram. He said he now has two
inspectors on the job, that the
entire program is on schedule
and everything is looking
good. He asked the Board if
there were any questions or
problem as to the work up to
this point. He then advised
that he will have the Beaches
and White City Water and
Sewer report at the 70 percent
level by September 1st; that
no problems have been en-
countered up to this point.
Mr. Tisdale then discussed
the third phase of the road
construction program and re-
commended this work be done
in two separate jobs in order
to save time. He said the best
timetable would be to adver-
tise on August 1st, open bids
and award contract on August
26th and hold the preconstruc-


unanimously carried to ad-
vertise as recommended a-
bove.
The Board discussed the
matter that some fences along
the streets included in the
third phase paving program
are across the streets and
these fences must be removed
prior to paving. Commissioner
Gortman was requested to
attend to this matter.
Harland 0. Pridgeon, Tax
Collector, presented his list nf
Errors, insolvencies, and
double assessments for the
1979 tax roll in the amount of
$4,557.53. He also presented
his report as to the collections
on the 1979 tax roll. Copy of
said report is on file in the
Clerk's office.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Branch, seconded by
Commissioner Gortman and
unanimous vote, the Tax
Collector was released from
said roll, subject to audit.
The Tax Collector then
reported that a court order in
favor of Trailer Train Com-
pany requires the County to
refund taxes heretofore paid,
as follows: 1976 $497.67, 1977 -
$570.38,1978 ; $682.05, and 1979
$709.75. The amount due from
this Board is $991,54. He
requested the County to give
him a check in said amount in
order he may make the refund
as required. Upon motion by
Commissioner Tankersley,
seconded by Commissioner
Branch, and unanimous vote,
the Clerk was authorized to
pay the Tax Collector $991.54.
The Board received a leeter
from the Department of En-
vironmental Regulation with
reference to consent order in
Case No. SW94-79 dealing with
the closing of the County's
garbage sites and the opening
of a new site. The Chairman
said he will advise the Depart-
mental of Environmental
Regulation that the County
has not obtained the new site
at thiis time.
The Board accepted a drain-
age easement for a ditch from
W. Clyde Bozeman Jr., et als.,
recorded in OR Book 82, Page

voted to file an application
with the Department of Na-
tural Resources under its under its local
assistance program for the
County to acquire the street
ends between US98 and the
Gulf of Mexico at St. Joe

Assistant was directed to file
this application.
The Board discussed the
possibility of establishing a
Community Action Agency.
The Chairman said more
information will be needed on
this subject.
The Department of Com-
munity Affairs notified the
Board that its application for a
grant in the amount of $6,204.-
00 for Emergency Medical
Services Communication
equipment has been approved.
The Board directed the Clerk
to issue a purchase order for
this equipment.
The Sheriff informed the
Board as to two Civil Defense
Meetings to be held next
month. The Chairman di-
rected the Sheriff to have
someone attend these meet-
ings.
Tommy Pitts, Administra-
tive Assistant, reported that
the Street in Whispering Pines
Subdivision, Unit 2, met the
requirements of the County as
established prior to the Sub-

to this one condition, and
ordered that the plat be
accepted and recorded.
