Pact with Teachers


Agree to New Salary Schedule


The Gulf County School Board and
the Classroom Teachers Association
have signed a working agreement for
1980-81. On Thursday, August 28, repre-
sentatives from both groups affixed
signatures to the last year of a three
year contract. Agreement ha. been
reached following four short sessions at
the bargaining table.
Walter Wilder, Superintendent
stated "negotiations went smoothly in a
spirit of cooperation and understand-
ing". Records indicate this is the
earliest time during a school year when
agreement has been reached. Wilder
pointed out that "everyone did their


homework and were prepared to work
for an early settlement".
The financial package provides an
approximate 10 percent salary increase
for instructional personnel. The new
salary schedule' goes from $10,000 to
$15,000 in 18 increment steps for holders
of bachelor degrees. Instructors with a
master's degree receive an additional
.$1,400.
Superintendent Wilder explained to
the school board members that this
increase in salaries can be funded
without binding the educational pro-
gram. "Our people deserve an in-

crease," said Wilder, and "we will trim
where possible to meet this goal."
The new agreement also provides
for a $60 per year increase in insurance
benefits and a 10 percent increase in
supplementary salaries. This will bring
the total insurance contribution to a
member of the bargaining unit to ap-
proximately $20,000. Supplementary
salaries will pass $40,000 for the first
time.
Employees of the school board who
do not belong to the bargaining unit will
also be given an approximate 10
percent salary and $60 insurance
increase. Supplementary adjustments,
have also been made.
Superintendent Wilder and the
School Board believe a good school year
has begun for students and with the
contract talks ended, all instructors
and' administrators can focus attention
to the educational processes.

School Mills Cut, Budget Hiked


The Gulf County School
Board will hold a public
hearing Monday at 5:00 p.m.,
on the tentative budget the
Board adopted on Tuesday of
wtis week.
i.The new budget, like the one
3.st year, reflects an increase


in responsibility for financing
by the state, of Florida and a
reduction in the amount of
local taxes which goes into the
system. The budget total
shows an increase of $226,000
over last year's financial plan.
Last year, the schools bud-


geted $6,333,954.27 and this
year have approved a fiscal
plan set at $6,559,224.29.
The bulk of the budget
increase is made up of an
increase in pay for both
instructional and non-instruc-
tional personnel, approved


last Thursday by the Sch
Board and the Gulf Cour

Don't Throw Your Vote Away Next Tuesday'


Gulf County Offices Pay Enough to Demand Competence


Tuesday is the first step toward making
some very important decisions here in Gulf
County. You will be responsible for selecting
. the people to run our county and state
government from.the local level. You will be
responsible for selecting leadership to see that
the various services you expect from your
government are provided in an efficient,
effective and economic manner.
You will be selecting the people to run
your business and spend your money.


WE ALL PAY TAXES
All of us these days pay too many taxes.
Some of it is necessary from rising costs;
some is not. That part of our money being
spent which is not necessary is what we should
be concerned with. It hurts to pay out taxes
each year. We feel the hurt is designed both to
make us more alert to how it is being spent
and who we select to do the spending for us.
In these days of high taxes and increasing
demands for services from government on
every level, it is no longer our luxury to put in
our friends or some good old boy to run our
business for us. This will be a big temptation
next Tuesday, but one we should fight hard to
resist and make our choice for the person best
qualified for the job.
GOOD SALARIES DEMAND COMPETENCE
The salaries we, the taxpayers, are
paying these days to take care of our business


for us, demands that we select the best
qualified person and demand stellar perform-
ance for our money.
County political positions no longer are
largely a public service type thing. They all
pay good money. Many of them make more
than most of us. When we go to the polls
Tuesday, we intend to pull the levers for the
people we think will earn these salaries. The
ones we pull the lever for need not necessarily
be our friends. If we think they can perform,
they will get our vote..
And, here's the reason why. Following are
the several offices we will be voting on
Tuesday and the salaries they will be
receiving as of September 1 of this year.
School Board member, $8,097.00.
County Commissioners, $8,414.00.
Superintendent of Schools, $27,705.00.
Clerk of the Court, $24,802.00.
Sheriff, $24,802.00.
Property Appraiser, $24,802.00.
Tax Collector; $20,447.00.
Supervisor of Elections, $19,235.00.
County Judge, $44,547.00.
These are the salaries paid all of the
public servants in Gulf County. As you can
see, there is no room for friendship or "good
old boy" politics anymore. The salaries are
commensurate with what a decent adminis-
trator would make most places today.


Here in Gulf County we have voted for
public servants in the past solely on the merits
of friendship, family, needed a job, did us a
favor, belongs to the same church or lodge,
speaks kindly of everyone or speaks his mind
all the time. These reasons are no longer good
reasons, when we consider how much of our
money is going to pay these people.
SHOULD EARN SALARY
We don't begrudge them the salary. We
think the time our public servants could
devote to their jobs, if they are done correctly,
deserves the salary. We don't think some of
those we have elected in the past earned their
keep. To be fair about it, many have.
Since Gulf County is a relatively small
county, we need public servants who will be
working servants as well as administrators.


We can't afford to hire people Tuesday who
will in turn have to hire an assistant to do their
job for them. Those assistants are paid with
our money and we don't have it to pay when
the elected official can take care of the job
were he only capable of doing so.
Look at your tax bill Tuesday, look at the
salaries you will be paying those you elect,
then, above all, look at the qualifications of
everyone running.
Here in Gulf County, most of us know all
about the candidates who are seeking office.
Most of us have known most of them for years.
We know their capabilities. We know the
stinkers in the bunch. We know the
incompetents and the mal-contents.
Use your head when you pull that lever on
Tuesday. It's your money you're, spending.

I knew all our secret hiding places
and took to my new job and eventually
we all persuaded the friend that going
to school wasn't so bad, after all. He
eventually turned into a good scholar.

ovals and push-pulls to how to properly ,

LIVING AT MY HOUSE has
always been an adventure. I never
knew from one day to the other what to
expect. With three rowdy boys and
three girls in the house, there was just
no telling what a new day would bring.
I've seen everything in the house from a


bugle in the bathroom to a set of
long-horned steer horns lying on the
living room couch.
Saturday morning as I was step-
ping out the door to come to the office to
write this blurb, I had another surprise.
I thought when the kids all grew up and
left home, the surprises were all over.
It isn't so. The mother of those kids
is just about like they were. She likes to
collect things. If it will hold a flower,
She'll collect it. If it looks interesting,
she'll collect it. If nobody else wants it
and the paint is good, she'll take it. We
have closets full of things which we
don't wear, use or look at any more, but
because they are good and "somebody
might need them one day", they are
still in the closet.
Back to Saturday morning.
As I was stepping out the side door
to go to the car, I nearly tripped over a
bird cage. A tall, wire bird cage was
sitting there on the door step, where
there haadbeen none when I came home
the night before.
We don't have a bird.
We're not getting a bird.
Then why the bird cage?
I asked, you understand, but didn't
get an intelligent answer. Frenchie


mumbled something like, "somebody
was throwing it away".
I'm afraid some day, the Depart-
ment of. Environmental Regulation is
going to come down on me for operating
a landfill without a state permit.
I still don't know what the bird cage
is going to be used for at our house.

NEXT SUNDAY IS the most
important day of the year.
It's not because the new pastor
the Long Avenue Baptist Church will be
preaching his first sermon in our
church.
It's not because it is justja week or
two till the day when Frenchie and I
were married 34 years ago.
It's not because it is the beginning
of the first week of football season.
Sunday is an important day be-
cause it is Grandparents Day.
Grandparents are special people,
whose main purpose in life is to tell
their kids how to raise their grandchil-
dren. As you know, God made the
riistake of trusting the raising of kids to
amateurs, so grandparents were put
into the world to steer them right.
I'm proud to be one, several times.

Wastes Help



Make Crop


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Grass clippings, potato peel-
ings, onion tops and other
vegetative waste material can
be made into a valuable soil
conditioner and plant food for
garden beds by remaining in a
compost heap. .

Compost can be used in
several ways. It provides a
good useable soil amendment
.for the garden and is certain-
ly much less expensive than
peat. Incorporated- into the
soil or around plants it is bene-
ficial in improving soil tilth,


REMEMBERING DAD
It's been two years now, but, It
only seems like yesterday
since Dad closed his eyes and
quietly slept away.
We miss him dearly day by
day
and pray that God has surely
come his way.
It seems like only yesterday.
I still can remember his
smiling face,
that he somehow showed day
by day.
But now that had's gone,
we must remember to keep his
spirits strong.
For as long as he's alive in our
hearts
we know he's not really gone.

friability, water holding capa-
city and nutrient retention.
Also, compost is used on the
soil surface as a mulch to
control weeds and conserve
moisture, or you can mix your
compost with soil and use it
for potting plants.
As vegetative materials-
materials which will rot or
decompose-become avail-
able, place them in' layers
between layers of soil in a pre-
pared frame or bin. Materials
such as leaves, waste from
fresh summer vegetables in
-the kitchen, straw and saw-
dust make excellent compost,
yet are normally heaped into
garbage cans.
Choose an out-of-way loca-
tion for the compost area,
since the heap. may appear
untidy. Choose a location that
is convenient to the gardening
area and to the kitchen door.
Usually, the small area behind
the garage or between the
utility room and the neighbor-
ing fence is ideal for fram-
ingand constructing the com-
post heap.
Decomposition of the plant
matter will require heat and
moisture for quick break-
down. The summer sun will
provide the heat, but it will be
the gardener's responsibility
to soak the compost arteafrom
time to time-for the moisture.
A light' sprinkling of fertili-
zer between layers of added
compost will aid in decomposi-
tion and replace the nitrogen
used in breaking down raw
materials into compost.
A compost pile prepared
now while there are still a
good many warm days left,
will be ready for spring.


4.87 for last year to 4.602 being
proposed for the coming fiscal
year.
Increases being considered
in the various City funds
include an increase of $64,682
in the General Fund; $37,654 in
the Water and Sewer Fund;
$4,080 in the Oak Grove Water
and Sewer District and $257,-

ment Plant.


Willie Lee Estridge


The Commission will come
up with a final financial plan
within the next two or three
weeks before it is advertised
for a public hearing prior to
final approval.
The City will more than
likely come up with an adden-
dum to the budget around the
first of the year when the
taxable property picture is
cleared up.

"Mums" Create

Fall Color


The common garden chry-
santhemums, popularly call-
ed "mums" belong to a large
group of annual and perennial
herbs in the plant family
called Composite. The cold-
hardy, cultivated varieties are
used extensively as garden
and patio flowers for fall
color.
The wide color range and
type and size of flowers tend to
increase the popularity of this
fine garden subject especially
noted for its excellent show of
color in September and Octo-
ber.
Flowers of mums can be
controlled by manipulating
day length, but most home
gardeners allow their plants to
flower in the normal fall
season. Controlled flower pro-
'duction at other seasons is
best left to commercial cut
flower producers.
I Chrysanthemums will grow
in any well-drained soil that
contains an abundance of
organic matter. If the soil is
very sandy, a three to four
inch layer of peat or other
organic material should be
worked into the flower bed to a
six inch depth.
Mums are grown from cut-
tings or division of old parent
clumps. Rooted cuttings are
usually available from local
garden stores. Space the
plants a foot apart for a mass
effect or two feet apart to
emphasize individual plants.
After the plants are estab-
lished and at least six inches
tall break off the top one or
two inches of the stem. This
will encourage lateral branch-
ing and produce lower,
bushier plants.
Two to three applications of
a 6-6-6 fertilizer at the rate of


one pound per one-hundred
square feet during the grow-
ing season is sufficient to grow
a good crop of flowers. When
applying fertilizers, keep the
material off the leaves. Water
thoroughly to distribute the
fertilizer, throughout the root
area.
Chrysanthemums may need
to be supported "unless the
plants are the low, strong
growing types. Tall, weak
stemmed plants definitely
need some form of staking. If
a wooden stake is used, drive
it into the ground at planting
time. Staking after the plants
are established can cause
injuries to the roots.
By careful choice of .varie-
ties, flowers of many types
and colors can be produced
from September until Christ-
mas, although an early frost
will injure some young buds
and thus reduce flowering.

is not served. I will prosecute to the fullest extent of the

eventually affect our children.
My number one product will be service to you and

Volunteers


Needed to Help


Volunteers In Service to
America, (VISTA), has serv-
ed Gulf County Schools well.
Willie Mae Daniell and Mar-
tha Lanier have been involved
recruiting and training volun-
teers for the past two years.
Those volunteers who worked
with these two ladies, have
provided an invaluable ser-
vice to students, teachers and
administrators.
Mrs. Daniells and Mrs.
Lanier will continue recruit-
ing and training school volun-
teers through the month of
September. At that time the
VISTA program will be termi-
nated. Conditions beyond their
control terminated this pro-
gram.
It is planned to continue the
school volunteer program
through Career Education and
Student Services.
Beginning October 1, those
who wish to volunteer their
services for the first time, this
year, may contact the princi-
pal's office of the school you
wish to serve or call the
Career Education office at
227-1558. ,


If you call either the prin-
cipal or Career Education
office, please be sure you give
your name, day(s) and
hours) you can work, address
and telephone number,
gradess, subject areass,
and-or activities you feel you,
can best serve. This informa-
tion is needed to provide
volunteers with hand-out ma-
terials which could help you be
a better volunteer.

QUALIFIED IMPARTIAL

Do you want your Property

Appraiser's office to
CONTINUE being run from
Tallahassee? If not, then
it's time for a change!

Since Mr. Patrick's health failed, the Appraiser's
office increased assessments last year by an average
of 25 percent. This year, they want to add another 10
percent. Their proposed budget increases from $47,927
'to $90,727, an increase of 89 percent, and they want to
put Gulf County in further debt by borrowing an
additional $15,000.00.
We can't solve Gulf County's problems by throwing
more money at them. That's like throwing gasoline on
a fire.
RODNEY LOUIS HERRING is the
ONLY CANDIDATE WHO HAS ACTUAL
PROPERTY APPRAISAL EXPERIENCE
and who CAN OPERATE the Appraiser's
Office WITHOUT OUTSIDE AID OR
INTERFERENCE!

RODNEY WAS BORN and reared in
Port St. Joe, was graduated from Port St.
Joe High School.in 1964.


RODNEY IS MARRIED to the former
Ginny Holloway of Wewahitchka and they
have two children, Gary and Holly.


RODNEY IS THE SON of Louis J.
"Red" Herring, former owner of the Leader
Shoe Shop and presently a union employee at
Basic Magnesia.

RODNEY'S MOTHER is Iva Mae Her-

tion. These include Ander
Crenshaw, Lewis Dinkins, Lou


Frey, Jr., Paula Hawkins,
Ellis Rubin and John T. Ware.
POLLING PLACES

Precinct Number 2, West


School Board Nears


Bidding for Wewa School


The Gulf County School
Board came closer to calling
for bids for construction of an
addition to the Linton School
site in Wewahitchka at their
regular meeting Tuesday.'
According to Superinten-
dent B. Walter Wilder, the
Board plans to take bids on the
project within the next month
or two. "We plan to have


construction underway by late
November", Wilder said.
The Board is making plans
to add facilities to the present
Kindergarten and first grade
school to provide classroom
facilities for Kindergarten
through third grade and lunch-
room facilities.
Wilder said the project is
being funded by the county's


capital outlay funds furnished
by the state of Florida.
Construction of the new
expansion is expected to take
some eight months of work to
complete. "We exect to be in
the facility by the beginning of
the next school year or in the
early fall of next year",
Wilder said. "Completion will
depend on the weather."


House District: incumbent
Leonard J. Hall and Steve
Strickland.
CONGRESSIONAL
Only one national question
will be on the Tuesday ballot.
This will include the hotly
contested senate race for the
seat now held by Senator Dick
Stone.
The candidate line-up for
this position include: John
Brindley Coffey, Bill Gunter,
Buddy MacKay, James L.


DISTRICT QUESTIONS
In addition to the regular
voting for the candidate of
their choice, voters in the
Overstreet and Howard Creek
areas will be deciding whether
or not they wish to establish a
fire control district in their

The question to be decided is
whether or not the property
owners in the two areas wish
to allow themselves to be

training program said the
Florida Highway Patrol to-
day.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol Director announced that
all troopers will be given
economy driving training in
the near future using specially
equipped patrol cars.
Troop Safety Officers from
over the state will be trained
in an eight hour course in
economy driving at the High-
way Patrol Academy in Tal-
lahassee.
Each safety officer's patrol
car will be equipped with a
special fuel monitoring device
and will be used to instruct
troopers throughout the state.
The new course will also be
added to the curriculum of the
Patrol's regular 13-week re-
cruit class.
In as much as the greatest
number of miles traveled by
troopers is during routine
patrol and not emergency
driving, the Fuel Efficiency
Awareness Program is ex-
pected to increase the average
miles per gallon, thereby
saving money.
In addition to accelerator


Patrol
control the other fuel conser-
vation measures stressed will
be proper tire pressure (each
trooper will be issued an air
guage), reduction of extra
weight, reduction of engine
idling, and proper tune ups.
The average miles per gal-
lon last year was 10.21. The
immediate goal is to increase
miles per gallon by at least
one mile.
This .figure includes all
kinds of driving, such as high
speed pursuit, emergency
calls and extensive idling,
which is sometimes necessary
to operate emergency equip-
ment at the scene of an
accident.
The patrol's 1,200 troopers
last year used 2,654,504 gallons
of gasoline at a cost of
$2,717,677.00.
Beach concluded by saying,
"We have been operating with
a shortage of gasoline funds
over the past year due to the
greatly increased price of fuel
and if this new program is
successful, it will permit our
troopers to cover their assign-
ed roads more completely.

Agriculture Day


Congressman Earl Hutto
announced recently from
Washington D.C., that he is a
cosponsor with 230 of his
fellow congressmen, of a
House Joint Resolution, which
will proclaim March 19, 1981
as National Agricultural Day.
The resolution states that
American Agriculture is a
vital ingredient in our national
strength; it is this nation's
most basic industry, and it's
associated production, proces-
sing, and marketing seg-
ments, together provide more
jobs than any other single
industry. "It is for these
reasons that I feel it is
important that all Americans
should understand how agri-
culture affects their lives and
well-being, and should be

Hutto reported that the bill

in the census and population

. Taylor said the Sharks lost
part of their strong defensive
team which allowed only four
touchdowns in last year's play
in regulation play, except the


Wakulla game, when the War
Eagles defeated the Sharks to
end their season.
The Sharks' defense also
allowed three touchdowns and
a field goal in overtime play
last year.
"We're concerned with our
defense although we have
several young linemen who


are much impiroved since

said.

Sharks this season seems to be.

Ellery Stickle of Albany, Georgia enjoyed his Labor Day
weekend while vacationing at Mexico Beach. He hooked this
40 pound sailfish while fishing aboard the "Ding Haw", two
miles west of the St. Joe sea buoy. It took him 30 minutes to
land this beauty, which measured 77 inches long.
Photo by Helen St. John


Sailfish, among the fastest of all creatures,
have been known to swim 68 miles per hour.

Ax Sharpened? It's Time


to Begin Cutting Wood


It's difficult to think about
preparing for winter with the
thermometer consistently top-
ping the 90 degree mark, but if
you plan to heat with fireplace
or woodstove, now is the time
to begin storing away fuel.
The high cost of fossil fuel
has many people taking a
serious look at wood these
days, so the Florida Division
of Forestry offers the follow-
ing tips for the novice.
First of all, dry wood burns
better than wet wood. That
. might, sound obvious, but
really it goes beyond the
obvious. "Wet" or "green"
are the terms used to describe
wood that has not been dried
over a period of time In terms
of burning wood for fuel, dry
doesn't simply mean that it
has been protected from' the
rain. .
The 'drier" the wood the
better it burns in most cases,
but for :most people, it isn't
practical to dry it more than a


few months. Wood cut now will
be dried sufficiently to burn
when the first cool weather
arrives in Florida.
The most economical way to
obtain firewood is to go out
and cut it yourself. But a few
rules are Livolved here too.
. Most important of all, secure
the permission of the land-
owner before cutting trees
anywhere except on your own
property.
While in the woods, watch
nut for snakes, and always be
careful with chainsaws .and
axes. Don't cut down more
trees than you plan to haul
back to your house, and don't
overload .your vehicle to get
them back home.
Most wood splits better right
after it's cut than after it has
dried. However, there are ex-
ceptions to that. Sweet gum is
very difficult to split when it's
green, and water oak splits
easier after it has dried for a
while. On the pther hand, live


oak is practically impossible
to split manually after it has
dried.
There are two important
rules for stacking the wood.
Number one, get the stack off
the ground. A good way is to
put down a row of poles and
stack the firewood on the
poles. Rule number two, stack
in such a way that air can
circulate around the wood.
As much as possible, stack
the split wood with the bark
side up to repel rain.
Don't wait until cool weath-
er arrives to get your fuel,
though. Nothing spoils a ro-
mantic evening in front of the
season's first fire quicker than
an uncooperative fireplace or
woodstove.

When 32 year old Buddy
Collins of Ft. Walton landed
the current state record shell-
cracker, he froze the fish not
realizing what he had. Three
months later the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish,
Commission was notified and
Collins' catch officially certi-
fied weighing 3 pounds and
8/4 ounces. This surpassed
the old record by % ounces.
But according to Collins,
the shellcracker weighed
slightly over 3 pounds and 10
ounces the night it was
caught. "This. is not un-
usual," said Norman Young,
Commission Fisheries Biolo-
gist, "for fish to lose weight
when frozen, even under
water. The tissues dry out at
a fairly rapid rate."
Young urged any person
who believes they've caught
a record size fresh water fish


to contact the Commission as
soon as possible. He said
several conditions must be
met to insure certification
but of primary importance is
to keep the fish in water.
The fish must have been
caught in Florida waters and
there has to be at least one
witness. Also, only Commis-
sion employees my certify
the fish and weighing must
be done on scales certified by
the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services. These scales are
commonly found at grocery
stores and supermarkets. .'

'"Child pedestrian accident
involvement peaks at ages
five and six," reminded Paul
Lewis, Panama City's
Branch Manager, launching
Peninsula Motor Club's an-
nual '"School's Open Drive
Carefully" program. "This
statistic alone indicates that
we' evaluate our efforts to-
ward safeguarding a begin-
ningstudent's journey to and
from school."
Why are so many children
involved in traffic accidents?
M. Lewis cited recent re-
S'search' that:
--Children's small stature
makes it difficult for them to
see a traffic situation as it
appears to an adult, and also
#w=events drivers from seeing
them.
-The visual development
of youngsters is not yet
complete,. lacking in the a-
bility of.focus clearly.
--Children often, have little
experience.in traffic environ-
ments, and frequently mis-
understand instructions given


to them by others.
"While young people tend
to be at a disadvantage in
moving traffic situations, ac-
cidents are not always their
fault," continued the AAA
spokesperson. "Citations
describing the actions of 1980
AAA School Safety Patrol
Lifesaving Medal Award re-
cipients reveal that the
careless behavior of motor-
ists can contribute to an
accident situation. The pro-
blem is often a two-edged
sword."
Mr. Lewis encouraged ve-
hicle operations to slow down
in the vicinity of schools,
exercise caution where warn-
ing signs and flashing signals
are in effect, and observe
safe procedures in school bus
loading area. "Remaining
alert and adapting driving
patterns when in the pre-
sence of young students is
essential, particularly during
those first hectic weeks of
school."

Cystic fibrosis is a respira-


Lry and digestive disease for
which there is no cure. Its
symptoms include a chronic
cough, recurrent lung infec-
tions, poor weight gain, and a
salty taste to the skin.
CF Week is a time for
alerting the public about these
symptoms so that children
born with cystic fibrosis can
get medical care as soon as
possible, giving them a chance
for a better life.

Dear Citizens:
I would like to thank you very much for all the help in
this campaign that you have given to me. As the time
for the elections draws near, we must not forget each
other. I am not running against anyone for the office of
Property Appraiser, I am'running tor that job. I have
been employed by Sammy Patrick for going on 14
years and I feel that I can-do the job. I have never been
the Property Appraiser of Gulf County, and I have
never had the authority to hire or fire in that office,
until Mr. Patrick's death, he did the hiring for the
small part time jobs. When Mr. Patrick passed away,
Sthe Governor appointed Mr. C. W. Brock for the
position of Property Appraiser and Mr. Brock has done
the hiring for any jobs available in that office. I will not
run down.or talk about my opponents, I was taught to
respect my fellow man. We know there can only be one
t Winner of each race, but in my case, if I were to lose I
will still be a winner, for I have met a lot of new people
and visited with a lot ol people that I haven't seen in a
long time and that within itself is a big reward. I hope
that you can see fit to elect me to the office of
PROPERTY APPRAISER on September 9. Your
prayers and your vote will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You.

1953, the Thunderbirds have
traveled throughout the Unit-
ed States and to 45"countries inrr
the Free World, logging over
2,200 performances before
more than 136 million people.
They will be bringing their
brightly-painted T-38 Talon
aircraft to Eglin.
The Valiant Air Command,
an organization of civilian
pilots and aircraft owners that
keeps the spirit of past avia-
tion alive, will also participate
in open house activities. The
command's vintage aircraft,
most from the World War II
era, will be on display to evoke
memories for many.


In addition, a wide array of
modern-day, first-line aircraft
from the Air Force and Air
Force Reserve will be on
display. These planes range in
size from the massive B-52
bomber to the diminutive F-16
fighter. Some of the aircraft
will be open for the public to
walk through and view up
close. Other exhibits of Air
Force activities and equip-
ment at Eglin will be available
for public viewing. Eglin
personnel will be standing by
to explain their equipment and
jobs, and to answer questions.
Open House '80 will begin
promptly at noon on Sunday,


September 28, and end at 5
pm. Ample parking will be
available and concession
stands in the display area will
be open to serve refreshments.
The Air Force's Air Demon-
stration Squadron "The Thun-
derbirds" will be the main
attraction at Eglin Air Force
Base's Open House '80. Locat-
ed in the Northwest Florida
panhandle near Fort Walton
Beach, Eglin will host the
event to give the public from
communities in, Alabama,
Georgia, and Florida, an
opportunity to learn more
about today's United States
Air Force.-

Tax Cut Proposils


We all realize the need
for tax relief in these infla-
tionary times, and Congress
has been investigating
responsible avenues of
reform. In the' House, the
Committee on .Ways and
Means recently began. hear-,
ings -to. evaluate different
avenues of equitable tax cuts
for the merican people.,The
Senate Committee on
Finance is also holding hear-
ings on these proposals. The
formal reports from these
Coinmittees can be expected
to be completed in two or
three months.
Several types of tax reduc-
tions have received support in
the 96th Congress. Below are
a few of the most prominent
proposals.
Payroll Tax Reductions
- Payroll tax receipts in re-
cent years have been the
fastest-growing component
of federal revenues. The
Social Security Amendments
of 1977 instituted higher
payroll tax liabilities on both
employers and employees to
finance future social security-
payments.' Proposals to
lighten the payroll tax liabili-
ty have taken 'many forms;
including, a rollback to
previous levels, post-
ponements or cancellation of
scheduled increases (with
possible general revenue
financing of some social
security benefits), and in-
come tax credits for a portion
of payroll taxes.
Tao Relief For Savers -
A number of bills have been
introduced in the 96th Con-
gress to provide tax breaks
for savers. The bills range
from a substantial exclusion
for returns from all forms of
saving (e.g., dividends, in-
terest, capital gains) to tax
relief for interest from sav-
ings accounts only. Many
variations on these proposals
exist. The general purpose is
to stimulate capital formula-
tion through increased sav-
ings. Last year the Congress
provided an exclusion on in-
terest income of up to $200
for an individual or $400 for
a couple filing a joint return.
This is a helpful first step.


Marriage Penalty -
Another topic that has re-
ceived attention in the 96th
Congress is the "marriage
penalty." This refers to the
features inr the tax system
which produce tax liabilities
for two working individuals
that are higher when they
marry than if they were to re-
main single. A frequent pro-
posal is to allow married
couples to file separately as
singles if they desire. Another
alternative would be a special
credit or deduction for work-
ing couples.
Retirement Investment
Deduction The retired seg-
ment of society suffers most
under an inflated economy in
that riost retirees are stuck to
a fixed income. An alter-
native that would add an in-
centive to invest in retirement
programs is the retirement
deduction proposal. This
avenue of tax' relief would
offer taxpayers opportunities
to -invest in retirement pro-
grams in addition to what is
offered through their
employment. This would
allow' a tax dediiuction of as
much as 15% to invest in
credible retirement programs.
Golden Onion Bread
Mrs. Don Bonker, wife of
a Representative from the
State of Washington, submit-
ted the recipe which Nancy
selected for this week.
2 cups biscuit mix
V2 teaspoon dry mustard
I egg, slightly beaten
1 tablespoon instant'
minced onion
1 tablespoon chopped
parsley
2/3 cup milk
V3 cup melted butter or
margarine
V. cup grated American
cheese

mustard. Combine egg,
onion, parsley, milk and but-
ter. Stit into dry mixture.
Turn into -a greased 8 inch
round pan. Sprinkle cheese
over top: Bake in 400" oven
for 15 minutes until bread is.
done and cheese is melted
and browned.


The Wewahitchka State
Bank presented, as a public
service, to the students of Port
St. Joe High School a film strip
program called "Banking
Is.." In making the pre-
sentation, Nolan Treglown of
the Port St. Joe office said,
"The program "Banking Is.."
gives the student first-hand
experience with the basic
banking activities he will use
throughout his life.
"Writing a check, applying
for a loan, computing interest
and using a bank's services
are things must adults take for
granted; we have done them
all our lives. But these activi-
ties must be learned, and for
many of today's students they
are as foreign as any new
endeavor.
. "Many adults learned bank-
ing by trial *and error; but in
today's world of advacing
technology, this is no longer a
satisfactory solution. For in-
stance, today checkwriting is
as much a part of life as
driving is. Ninety percent of
all financial transactions are
made by checks this year.
Yet, in spite of this, statistics
show that less than 85 percent
of the graduating seniors
know how to write a check
:properly. So, it is easy to see
that checkwriting is an activi-
ty that each student should
understand if he is to take his
place in the financial commu-
nity.
"We hope our sponsorship of
this program will help give the


student a more thorough and
systematic understanding of
these basic banking activities
and help him in the manage-
ment of his personal financial
affairs.
"We strongly believe that
the more financially secure a
student becomes through
knowledge and practice of
good banking, the better a
citizen he becomes; and the
better our young citizens, the
better our tomorrow."
In addition, Mr. Treglown
pointed out that as part of the
program, an officer of the
bank is available for a follow-
up classroom question-and-
anwer session and the stu-
dents may be given a tour of
the bank to see the operations.

To the Voters
We, as employees of the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department would like to ask the people of Gulf County
to support a man who has worked hard for Gulf County.
In the past 31/2 years, he has been a man on the job, 24
hours a day. He has never been a man who just sat
behind a desk for 8 hours and sent his men out to work,
he has worked alongside them both day and night, and
has gone many nights with very little rest. He's a man
that's lived and worked with the people of Gulf County
for 20 years, not 1. He knows law enforcement, it's been
his life for 23 years. Gulf County needs a man that we
know can do the job. That man is KEN MURPHY. So
we ask you, the people to

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 l 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
employed by U. S. Naval Dept., Washington, D.C. My
son, Ken, Is in the U. S.\Navy now stationed it Jackson-
ville Naval Air Station.'iMy 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.
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.
Pd. POl. Adv., Pd. for by Kenneth Whiffield

elderly and disabled, those
already working, those re-
sponsible for the care of
dependents and those already
registered for work under the
unemployment insurance and,
work incentive programs.
The rules also require re-
cipients who register for
work to be called in to their
state employment service,
now identified as job service
in many states, for an inter-
view and job classification'
Foreman said under the
existing program, funding
limitations have prevented
employment offices from
actually calling in and inter-
viewing any more than the
most employable of the food
stamp work registrants. Re-
cipients who have registered.
for work but had (ew job skills
have often not had the benefit
of employment office ser-
vices, Foreman said. Under


the proposed rules, USDA
would more than double the
amount of funding to the U.S.
Department of Labor, raising
the annual amount to $70
million so that department
can reach hard to place re-
cipients.
State job service agencies
would continue to refer regis-
trants to potential employers,
under the proposed rule. But
food stamp job seekers would
have to supplement this ser-
vice with their own eight-week
job search.
The proposed rules would
establish as a standard that-
work registrants contact be-
tween eight to 24 potential
employers within the eight
week period, and also report
for two follow-up interviews
with their employment coun-
selors, Foreman said. Re-
quirements for each person's
job search would depend on


major food stamp reforms
enacted in 1977 and set uni-
form national standards for
work registration and job
search activities.
The proposed work regis-
tration and job search regula-
tions, as -well as proposed
guidelines and notice of intent
to seek sponsors for the
demonstration project were
published in the August 8
Federal Register.
Comments on the proposed
regulations should be sent by
October 7 to Alberta Frost,
deputy administrator for fam-
ily nutrition programs, Food
Nutrition Service, USDA,
Washington, D.C. 20250.


their individual circum-
stances and the availability of
jobs in the community, as
assessed by the job service
counselor.
The state job services would
report to state welfare agen-
cies the names of food stamp
job seekers who refuse to
comply with the interviews or
job search requirements, as
well as those who find jobs.
While the work registration
and job search regulations are
expected to be in effect by
early 1981, the two govern-
ment agencies plan to run an
18-month demonstration pro-
ject to test other ways, such as
job-finding clubs, to match
food stamp applicants with
jobs. They will be seeking
state welfare and job service
agencies to sponsor the de-
monstration projects.'
