Interim Budget Set


City Adopts Last Year's Financial Plan-. _


Who Applies Penalty?
The City of Port St. Joe will go before the Gulf County
Commission at its next meeting calling for some clarification
as to whatthe City's position is in the case of a few customers
of the Oak Grove Water and Sewer system who have had
their water cut off for non-payment of bills.
The District, in order to obtain financing for the district
Sspystem, required the County to pass an ordinance requiring
everyone in the community to tie into the system and use its
services. About a half dozen have had their service curtailed
for non-payment of bills, which also stops payments on the
bond fund to pay for the system.
Thesystem is furnished water, billing service, repairs
Sand sewage collection and treatment by the City of Port St.
Joe.
'In Port St. Joe, the City has an avenue of requiring
people to use the local system and secure leins against the
property of those who become delinquent in payment of bills
to the point where service is cut off.
In Oak Grove, the City is unsure of. the procedure to
follow, or: even if it is the City's responsibility to do so.
Placement of responsibility and alternatives to take
against delinquent customers is what the City will seek
clarification on at Tuesday night's meeting."'


Joining other cities and.
counties in Florida who find
themselves in a dilemma over
what to do about a budget for
fiscal 1981, the City of Port St.
Joe will continue into the new
year of operations working on
the same financial plan as
they used in the past year.
Tuesday night, the City
Commission decided to go
with the interim financial plan
until after- the election of
October 7 when voters of
Florida will offer their opinion
on a proposed constitutional
amendment which will in-
crease the amount of the
homestead exemption clause
in the State Constitution,
requiring a change in the tax
set-up on a local level.
City Auditor and Clerk
Alden Farris told the Com-
mission,Tuesday night at the
regular meeting of the board
that he had been in contact

Farris said the office advis-
ed adopting the same budget
as the one used for fiscal 1980
and there would be no need for
public notices .or any other of
the procedures normally car-
ried out with the adoption of a
new budget.
Normally, the City has its
new budget adopted by this
time and sent to the Tax
.Collector. The City's fiscal
year begins on October 1.
The only problem faced by
the City of Port St. Joe in the
interim arrangement will be
financing of a pay raise
promised City employees with
the beginning of the new fiscal
year'. There was no provisions
made in the 1980 budget for the
promised pay raise. The City
Commission will deliver the
raise as promised by amend-
ing the 1980 budget at the next,
meeting to include the pay
raise and finance .it out of
available funds until the new
budget is adopted and taxes
become available.
The City will operate during
the interim period on money
now set aside in depreciation
funds," repaying the funds
after the new tax rate is set
and taxes collected and turned
over to the City..
NEW BUDGET LATER

will probably be adopted some
time in October or early
November, after a clear pic-
ture is available concerning
property val and tax rates.

Ward Ridge Residents



Choosing Up Sides


What appears to be a simple election to select three
City Commissioners is really a process of making the
decision of whether or not to support continuing on as an
incorporated city for the small community of some 90 to
100 people just south of Port St. Joe.
The community and the candidates have drawn up
sides for the election to be held on September 30 to select a
commission who favors or who objects to continuing on as
an incorporated city.
The three incumbents on the Board are all in favor of
_ c nijli.g a&.a city and.are. seeking re-election n this.
platform. John E. Rich, Sr., Lewis W. Taylor and Alden V.
McCulley are the incumbents and are seeking re-election
to four year terms which will begin on October 6 of this
year.
Rich is being opposed by James H. Bennett; McCulley
has Oliver B. Strickland for an opponent and Johnnie D.
Linton will try to unseat Taylor.
All three of the challengers have had their signatures
attached to several lawsuits which have been initiated in


the process of trying to force the abandonment of the
incorporation of Ward Ridge.
The matter came to a head several months ago, over a
gas franchise and a call by the petitioners to see an
accounting of any money the city may have received over
the years. Ward Ridge levies no ad valorem taxes.
There are 62 registered voters in the City of Ward
Ridge who will be involved in deciding the question.
While the commission opposition does not have the
power to abolish the City, their opposition to the continued
status will probably weigh heavilyon a decision on this
very matter which will be-mad by 'the apartment of
Community Affairs in Tallahassee at a hearing on
October 22. One of the petitions circulated through Ward
Ridge Would call for abandonment of the City's charter
since, according to the petition, the City has been largely
inactive for some time.
TwO of the former Commissioners of the city died
while in office, and there was.a period of time before they
were replaced. During this time, only John Rich was
acting in an official capacity for the. city.


Small Problem Plaguing


City's 1

One small problem is plagu-
ing the City's water depart-
ment in its new water treat-
ment plant and the Commis-
sion has immediately jumped
on the problem and called
attention of the trouble to the
engineers who designed the
plant.
The problem is with a pump
in a sludge pit, which was
designed to pump lime sludge
back into the system to be
recirculated after it has been
settled out in the bottom of the
system and collected in the
pit. The trouble is that the
pump gets contrary at times
and goes to vibrating-and
stops pumping what it is
supposed to move.
Building inspector E. F.
Gunn, who acted as the City's
construction inspector on the
job reported on the problem to
the Commission Tuesday re-
marking, "The rest of the
plant works fine. It does just
what it was meant to do, but
this one pump area is causing
us problems."
Gunn and Water Superinten-
dent G. L. Scott seemed to-
think the problem was in a
design deficiency rather than
a faulty pump. "The pump
works fine for a while, then the
sludge will pile up, or a piece
of grit get in the pump and it
will start vibrating or stop",
Gunn said.
The inspector and superin-
tendent both agreed the pump
would work fine if there were
no slight lumps in the lime it is
trying to pump and if the
material were somehow kept
in suspension in water and
scooped toward the pump
inlet. "This takes manpower
and the system is supposed to
operate without this extra
manpower", Gunn said.
The problem area is a sump
outside the plant which col-
lects the lime and other


impurities, sends the good
lime back into the system, the
good water back to the treat-
ment plant and the sludge to
the Wastewater Treatment
Plant.
Gunn said the City crews
would take the problem pump


out of the sump today and
clean it out once more (a
process they have already
performed several times),
clean out the sump and start it
all over again from scratch to
see what happens once more.
Mayor Frank Pate instruct-


ed Clerk Alden Farris and
attorney William J. Rish to
contact the engineering firm,
Smith and Gillespie of Jack-
sonville, to have an engineerf-

monitor the start-up, so they:.

We think something needs to be done
about the absentee ballot procedure here in
the state of Florida.
At almost every election held in the
state, the absentee -ballots seem to be
considered "fair game" when the elections
get close. The losing candidate can put up
a challenge for numerous reasons to have
absentee ballots thrown out and not count-
ed. It seems this procedure is not exercised
unless the ballot in question would enhance
the plaintiff's position in the final count.
It's almost without exception that a favor-
,able absentee ballot is not questioned by
one of the aspiring candidates.
It is the prerogative of the canvassing
board to allow or disallow a complaint
against any particular absentee ballot, but
,we think they are too quick to declare a
ballot invalid and throw it out, thus
*penalizing the one who cast the vote. He is
the one 'who should be considered in the
first place not the candidate receiving
his vote.
This isn't just a local problem.. It
-happens all over the state. In a close
election, you can just look for the absentee
.ballots to be thrown out like old banana


peels. As a matter of fact, Gulf canvassers
allowed an. unusually large percentage of
the absentee ballots to stand this year. Of
413 cast, 381 were counted. Still, this meant
that 32 persons who thought enough of their
right to vote to go to the trouble to make a
special effort to cast an absentee ballot
when he knew he wouldn't be able to vote
on election day, had their' concern and
effort tossed aside like so much waste
paper. If they knew -ho they were, they


We think it would be just as proper to
throw out those votes cast at a machine by
illiterate or blind persons. State law allows
these persons to have someone in the booth
with them to check off their preferences.
But who is to guarantee the helper checks
off the candidates the voter designates?
There is room for challenge in anything
and we think the absentee ballots should be
opened, counted and recorded, just as the
other ballots are.


No More Appropriate Place.for Need of Prayer


A federal appeals court ruled last week
that the state of North Carolina had no
business distributing "official prayers" on
road maps, even if it is intended to save
lives.
The court of appeals in-Richmond, Va.,
has ruled that the prayer, which has
appeared on official ,state maps for 16
years is an unconstitutional violation of the
separation of church and state.
Where the state seems to have gotten
itself into trouble is that a state official


composed the prayer and directed it be
placed on the maps. This, of course, is the
meat of the coconut in the prohibition to
prayer in schools. The Supreme Court has
said the school officials, nor government
officials- may compose a prayer and require
it to be repeated in schools. Neither may
students be required to pray or listen to
prayers. There seems to be no objections to
voluntary and spontaneous prayers among
the students.
The North Carolina prayer has been in
hot water since it was first placed on the


maps in 1964, but has been defended over
the years on the grounds that it was
non-denominational.
The court may be treading on safe
grounds when they ban the prayer on the
road maps, but in this day and time, we
can think of no more appropriate place to
be praying than on the nation's highways.
When you take to the road, you need to
give your heart to God, because the rest of
you is at the whim of some crazy motorists on
our roads.


Remembers Ship Sinking


I 'Mica" Sent

to Bottom

in WWIl
SDiar Wesley,
I read with much interest an
article that appeared in last
'$i nday's Panama City News
Herald about the sinking of the
HMS Empire Mica off Cape
San Bias.
-The date was June 29, 1942
and I was 15 years old. In fact,
it was just four days past my
15th birthday. It was a time
that all school kids like,
summer holidays.,
sAaYXgur brother, Will, Billy
Howell, and I had all found
summer jobs as "soda jerks"
at McKissack's Drug Store.
S Two months later this busi-
ness was to change ownership
and become Smith's Pharm-
acy.
S It was a much quieter time
and one of our favorite activi-
ties was to grab our blankets,
op on our bikes and ride to a
predetermined place for a
sleep-out. To carry out the
Iheme of being bad boys, we
* would usually bring a cigar or
,. "stogie" to puff on.
About 11 O'clock on Monday
: iCght, the night of the tragic
^mishaps, Billy Howell, "Ho-
It" Rowan, and I settled down
.:;i the end of the old city pier.
S oppositete ,the park for our
.,appointed rendezvous. Around
one or one thirty we were


awaken, perhaps by the ex-
plosion, and saw the whole
southern sky over Cape San


Bias aglow. We theorized as to
what it could be and concluded
that it was probably one heck
of a woods fire at the head of
St. Joseph Bay.
The following morning we
learned what had happened
when some of the cars carry-
ing the injured survivors to
Panama City stopped at a


local station to gas up.
Just recently, I was in the
Divers' Den in Panama City.


Displayed on the wall was a
ship's brass port-hole with an
attached sign stating that it
had been removed from the.
Empire Mica just three days
before. It was remarkably
well preserved to have been in
17 fathoms for 38 years.

Tom Parker

!Most WeeklyNewspaper Editors Come Up With Some Weird Ideas


E THERE MUST BE SOMETHING
ill the ink, the paper, or the hectic pace
of putting out a small weekly news-
paper which makes most weekly
editors have some weird ideas.
I get copies of a lot of weekly
papers printed in this area every week
aid it would surprise you sometimes at
the ideas these guys come up with for
columns, editorials and features.
: One of these weird characters is
Bill Phillips, down in Wakulla. Bill is a
retired publisher of the Tallahassee
Democrat and is now involved, up to the
hilt,in the publication of the Wakulla
County News.
SBack. when he was with the
Democrat, Philhps seemed to be a
sensible sort of a fellow. But when he
was with the Democrat, he had a large
staff who could turn out the paper with
no sweat. Now, it's just he and the small
staff he has, who are charged each
wpek with making the deadline with the
piper, regardless of who gets sick,
what breaks down or whether or not
there is any local news to fill up the
columns. I think the strain has placed
Phillips in the category with some of
these other weekly newspaper types.

his news offices and business offices on
the back porch of the house he
purchased and put the production
equipment in the living part.
Doesn't that sound weird to you?
Except for the obvious attributes of
having a cane bottom rocker or two in
which to cogitate on a news article or
editorial, I think the back porch idea is
a little too far out ... even for a weekly
newspaper editor.

I COULD USE a news office here at
The Star. Our staff operates out of the
office supply office and my "news
office" is a folder lying on my make-up
table here in the composing room and a
few scraps of paper in my shirt pocket.
Even that causes problems, because
sometimes somebody misplaces my
"news office" (the folder or my scraps
of paper) and I have lost an entire
office. Not many businesses can boast


of losing an entire office. We do it here
at The Star on occasion.
Bill didn't say whether or not his
darkroom, which needs plumbing for
operation, wpuld be in the bathroom, or
the kitchen. If I were he, I would opt for
the kitchen. Kitchens are more plea-
sant to operate out of than bathrooms. I
have to admit, though, I have conjured
up many an article while ruminating in
the bathroom.
HERE AT THE STAR we could use
a little bit of extra room very well.
When I read of Bill Phillips placing his
news offices on the back porch, I gave
fleeting consideration to doing the same
thing here at The Star.
We don't have a back porch on the
Star building, but we have a patio of
sorts out back. There is a vista of
sandspurs and one of shoulder-high
rag-weed separated by a uniquely
designed concrete patio, which we
desecrate occasionally by unloading
newsprint rolls across its expanse.
I thought we might locate my desk,
which I have never had since I have
been in the newspaper business, right


St. Joseph

Bay Tides

High and low tides, and their
respective heights, for St.
Joseph's Bay for the upcom-
ing week are shown in the tide

behind the two yard garbage dumpster.
That would give me a modicum of
privacy and add a certain flavor to the
decor. It would be unique among
newspaper offices and make the trash
can extra handy for rejects and free
hand-outs which we receive by the arn
load each and every day.
There's a couple of old refrigera-
tors in the rag-weed vista which were
put there by the appliance repair sh
next door, and possibly we could u
them for filing and storage of valuable
bits and pieces of information we wish
to keep for future reference. Too, we
might trim up the weeds somewhat and
have a ready-made garden and solar-
ium. There's no roof on our patio, so
they would get plenty of sun.
I had given all of this a great
amount of thought, after I read of Bill
Phillips back porch office, but I have
about abandoned it. I looked over the
alley way behind our back of the
building patio and I've just about
decided the close proximity to the
garbage can may just give a little too
much credibility to what some people
are already saying about this marve-
lous newspaper.

would probably be complaining loud and
long.
We think that if a person thinks enough
of his right to vote to cast an absentee
ballot, it should be counted. If the elections
supervisor issues and receives the ballot,
there should be no question about the
ballot. It should be counted unless there
was some glaring mistake which would
makes it impossible to determine for whom
the person casting the ballot wished to vote.

Constitution Was Born Of



Need for States' Unity


Although the United States
of America is considered a
young country, it has the.
oldest written Constitution
among the important nations
of the world.
The American Revolution
ended in i781, but it was not
until May 25, 1787, that the.
states met in general conven-
tion in Philadelphia, Pennsyl-
vania. This was to be the
Constitutional Convention,
DID YOU KNOW THAT
Before September 17, 1787,
the U.S. Congress had no
authority to levy taxes? It
could only plead with the
states for money. And states
that paid were bitter with
those which did not, and said
so.
"New Hampshire," wrote a
Virginian in 1787, "has not
paid one shilling since peace
and doeo not even mean to pay
one to all eternity. In New
York they pay well because
they can do it by plundering
New Jersey and Connecti-
cut!"
Before September 17, 1787,,
Congress had no power to
regulate commerce? Some
states began laying tariffs and
other burdens on the shipping
trade of their neighbors.
Before September 17, 1787,
Washington could not control
or discipline his men? Not
even if they deserted, stole
from the army, or plundered
homes of civilians.
Before September 17, 1787,
there was no United States
Navy? Nine of the states had
their own navies.
Before September 17, 1787,
some of the States made their
own treaties with the Indians
and ignored the treaties Con-
gress made with European
nations?
Before September 17, 1787,
we had no federal monetary
system? Each state issued its
own currency and some issued
paper money unacceptable to
others.
Before September 17, 1787,
the jealousy between the
larger and smaller and the
richer and poorer states was a
great threat to the growth and
strength of the United States?
If the United States Govern-
ment was to become strong
enough to keep the people in
order at home and make the
little republic respected
abroad, reform was essential.
For this purpose the Consitu-
tional Convention was called.
DID YOU KNOW
James Madison, of Virginia,
is looked upon as the "Father
of the constitution of the
United States of America? He,
along with George Washington
and young Alexander Hamil-
ton, began early to work for
national unity.
General George Washington
was, by unanimous vote,
elected presiding officer for
this convention?
The Constitutional Conven-
tion was a young gathering?
Charles Pinkney was 29;
Alexander Hamilton, 30, Ru-
fus King, 32; Jonathon Day-
ton, 26; Gouveneur Morris, 35;
James Madison, 36; Benjamin
Franklin's 81 years raised the
average considerably, but it
never went beyond 43.
Strict secrecy was preserv-
ed in regard to the Convention
agenda? The news media and
general public were not ad-
mitted and no Convention
business was to be discussed
outside the State House meet-
ings.


According to Madison, old
Dr. Franklin and William
Pierce, of Georgia, were very
talkative and, it was almost
impossible to keep them
quiet!
Because of dissension be-
tween the delegates the Con-
vention many times was close
to dissolution? One South
Carolinian said of the New
Englanders, "I disliked them
before I ever knew them
because they all wear black
woolen stockings!"
The drafting, signing and
ratification of the Constitution
of the United States stands out
as a prime example of man's

On September 17, 1787, at
State House, Philadelphia,
this document was approved
by 39 of the 55 delegates.
The British Stateman, Wil-
liam Gladstone, paid tribute to
the Constitution as "the most
wonderful work ever struck
off at a given time by the brain
and purpose of man". But
Washington writing to La-
Fayette and Madison writing
to Thomas Jefferson referred
to it as "the miracle at
Philadelphia".

Let Us Continue
You, the concerned residents and parents of Gulf
County, by your vote last Tuesday gave your clear
mandate for better education in our county. Your voice
shall continue to guide my administration of your
Superintendent's office.
At this time, I feel it is appropriate to publicly
commend and congratulate my opponent, Kenneth D.
Herring for his fine campaign. Certainly, Gulf County
can be proud of the individual candidates and manner
in which this race was run.
Your overwhelming support of my candidacy
deeply moves and gratifies me. Concern for Gulf
County's children continues to be the foundation of my
administration. Your support and prayers are still
needed and appreciated.

Sharks Defeat Monticello



In Overtime Thriller


Port St. Joe's Sharks hadn't
-. heard the pre-game talks of
-Coach Wayne Taylor this
year, so they didn't know they
were supposed to have a weak
-defense this year. As a result
of their ignorance to where
their abiities were supposed to
lie, the Sharks went out
Friday night and defensed
strong Jefferson County of
Monticello into a 14-13 win in
their season opener.
The Sharks used up the
entire game and most of an
overtime period to come up
With their victory, and when it
came, it was a key tackle by
Kip Alstaetter of Jefferson's
quarterback Greg Leather-
S. man, trying to sneak across
the goal line with the ball for a
two point conversion which
'.would have given his team a
'ione point victory.
S Leatherman didn't make it.
SNeither did the Tigers.
The Sharks have also had
their offense heralded in the
-' pre-season civic dinner
speeches and the first period
last Friday night just about
had the crowd at the opening
night performance convinced
the after dinner speeches were
right on target. The Sharks
started off the- game by
breaking Ashley Abramsloose
for a 40 yard dash for the goal
line, but the referee said he
had stepped out of bounds and
called the ball back to the 36
S- yard line. On the Sharks' first
play from scrimmage, Rozelle
Jenkins ripped off eight yards
up the middle. Jenkins, Ab-
rams and Chuck Stephens
kept punching at the Tiger
line, until, eight plays into the
game, Jenkins took the ball
over the left side of the line to
score. David Bray kicked the
extra point, and the Sharks
were on the scoreboard with
what seemed to be an easy
effort on their part. The Tigers
stiffened up-after the TD and,
if they couldn't move the ball,
they would concentrate on
keeping the Sharks away from


the goal for the rest of the
game.
The Sharks continued to
move well in the first half,
racking up four of their 10 first
downs in the first period alone.
The Tigers could not move.
In the second period, the
Tigers had the ball twice. Mid-
way in the period, they picked
up their initial first down of
the game on runs by Jual
Jimenez and James Massey.
The only other gains in the
. period came on a pass from
quarterback Leatherman to
Willie Mills. But Jenkins
stroked Mills as he caught the
ball, causing a fumble which
the Sharks recovered, break-
ing up a drive.
In a loosely played third
period, neither team did much
except build up their penalty
statistic for the game. The
Sharks rolled up 35 yards of
their total of 61 in this one
period alone, while the Tigers
were doing their part with 30
yards of their own. The only
bright spots of the period were
Shark defense. Richard Par-
ker recovered a Tiger fumble
on the Shark 35 yard line after
the Tigers had managed their
deepest penetration of the
game into Shark territory and
Ashley Abrams picked off a
Leatherman pass after the
Tigers' quarterback had be-
gun to find the range in his
passing attack. The intercep-
tion stopped a Tiger drive on -
the. Shark 16.
The Tigers, who had been
lying in wait for three periods
of play, finally came to life
with just two plinutes gone in,
the last period and struggled
to begin moving the ball after
they had recovered a Shark
punt at the 50 yard line. Curtis
Ciumity tried to run up the
middle but was stopped for no
gain by the Shark line. Fleet
Jual Jimenez- then took a
pitch-out from Leatherman
and eluded all the Shark
defenders as he galloped for
the Tigers' lone score of the


regulation game. Leatherman
- kicked the extra point and the
score was tied with six min-
utes left in the game.
Suddenly the Sharks came
to life and started moving the
football again. Rozelle Jen-
kins and Ashley Abrams be-
gan to alternate the ball
carrying chores with slices
through each side of the line,
picking up from four to six
yards a carry.. Five minutes
later, three Sharks were on
the Tiger 19 yard line and it
looked like the Sharks were
going to pull it out. But, with a
crucial down, which seemed
assured .of success by past
performance, a Shark jumped
off-side on their down and the
Sharks were in the hole. A
,pass over the middle fell
incomplete and Jenkins got
back to the nine yard line on
the next play which wasg not
enough for the Sharks to get a
first down. This threw the
game into overtime.
In overtime, the Sharks
continued the attack which
had proven successful in the
waning moments of the fourth
period. Jenkins bulled to the
five on the first down. Abrams
scooted to the one yard line on
second down and Jenkins
carried the ball over the goal
line onthird down. David Bray
licked the extra point and the
Sharks were ahead again.
In their turn at the overtime
opportunity, the Tigers spurt-
ed to the eight yard line on
first down. On second down,'
they moved the ball to the two
-and got an assist from the
Sharks on a delay penalty.
Dennis Jordan then sneaked
under the two lines from the
one -yard line to give the
Tigers a TD. The Tigers were
ready to go home and decided
to go for broke and try for a
two point. conversion rather
than settle for a kicked extra
. point to tie the game again.
Leatherman tried, the right
side of the Shark line, coming
in low. He was met by Kip


Alstaetter and the game was
over with the Sharks winning
their opener.

In old Germany it was illegal

The Wewahitchka Gators
uncorked a devastating
ground game in their season
opener last Friday night and
completely dominated the Ap-.
alachicola Sharks. The Gators
shut out the Sharks with a 33-0
drubbing before the apprecia-
tive Gator fans.
Steve Stripling, who quar-
terbacked the Gators last
year, moved to halfback this
year and rolled up 225 of the
Gators 370 yards on the
ground. Fullback Harold Wil-
liams rounded out the running
duo which made the Gators


Quarterback Chris Adkison (11) is dumped at the line of
scrimmage on a keeper play. Kip Alstaetter is on the ground
after blocking out another Tiger defender. The scoreboard in


click.
Stripling started the Gator
scoring with just a little over
five minutes left in the first
period when he burst off
tackle for an 84 yard scoring
gallop for the Gators. Tim
Taunton's pass for the extra
points was called back by an
off-side penalty and Taunton,
who was deadly last year from
the extra point stripe missed
his first of three attempted
extra points for the night.
The Gators amassed most of
their yardage in the first three,
periods and scored all but one'
touchdown in the first half.
Apalachicola aided the Ga-
- tor attack with fumbles, two of
wffich were costly.
After Striplings initial
score, the Sharks began to


generate a little offense and
picked up their initial first
down in the game late in the
first quarter, moving all the
way to the Wewahitchka eight
yard line in seven plays.
Quarterback Marcus Lane
fumbled and the miscue was
scooped up by the Gators'
Williams. It was a sad end to
Apalach's only long drive of
the evening.
The Gators then drove all
the way down the field in nine
plays, with Williams taking
the ball in from one yard out
with just a little more than two
minutes gone in the second
period. Again Taunton's kick
was wide and the Gators were:
sitting on a 12-0 lead.

Williams then came driving
up the middle for 26 yards.
Two plays later Stripling
scored from one yard out.
Taunton missed his third and
last kick of the night, giving
the Gators an 18-0 lead, with
more than a half game of
football game left to play.
Again the Sharks fumbled
on their next possession and
Stripling recovered the fum-
ble on the Sharks' 33 yard line.
Seven plays later Williams
scooted over the goal line for
his second score of the night,
This time Taunton found the
range"ahndi kicked the extra
point, giving the Gators a half
time lead of 25-0.


The Gators' last score came
with five minutes left in the
game, as Stripling came bar-
relling around end with a 55
yard burst of speed to add the
Gators' last TD.
Tomorrow night, the Gators
will have the Cottondale Hor-
nets on Gator field for a 7:30
game.

Get Bike Safety Taped Saturday


Reflective tape will be ap-
plied in a "Lite-A-Bike" pro-
gram to be conducted here
Saturday by the Veterans of
Foreign Wars, Post 11069.
Tape will be applied Satur-
day at David Rich's IGA,
located on Third St., begin-
ning at 10 a.m. Strips of re-
flective tape will be put on the
rear fender or high-rise bar,
handlebars, frame, front forks
and wheels of the bicycles,
making each bike more visible
after dark from all angles.
The highly reflective tape-
the same type material used
in reflective traffic signs and
license plates, is visible in the
headlights of an automobile.
The program places greater'
emphasis on outlining the
shape of the bicycle at night.
Drivers will no longer have to
guess what spots of reflected
light mean. The shape of the
bicycle at night will closely
resemble its shape in daylight.

Robert D. Young, director of
the local "Lite-A-Bike" pro-
gram.
He pointed out that some 800
persons are killed each year in
bike accidents, 62 percent of
them children under 14.
Another 28,000 persons are in-,
jured each year in such acci-
dents. Four out of five fatal
bike accidents occur after
dark.
"The extra warning provid-
ed a reflective tape can help
save a child's life," the V.F.W.
official said.
In addition to applying tape,
V.F.W. members will inspect
the bikes for proper equip-
ment: horn or other signaling
device, headlight, rear reflec-
tor and functioning brakes.
More than 25 million bikes
across the nation have been
made safer with reflective
tape by more than 8,000
V.F.W. Posts participating in
this program. Endorsed by the
National Safety Council, the
"Lite-A-Bike" program uses
reflective tape.

BUILDING PERMITS
In making his report, Gunn,
who is also building inspector
throughout the county report-
ed there had been some
changes made by the State of
Florida in its building permit
procedure.
Gunn said that all contrac-
tors, including sub-contrac-
tors must now have a state
license to do business in the
state. "This will prevent a
contractor who has had his
license lifted for shoddy work
in one county from jumping
over to another county and
setting up in business", Gunn
said.
Another change would re-
quire that all contractors and
sub-contractors obtain separ-
ate permits from the building


inspector before they can do
their work. "In other words,
the prime contractor, the
electrical contractor, plumb-
ing and air conditioning, peo-
ple must all obtain separate
permits", Gunn said.
"The Legislature passed
this thing and even though I
think it is all unnecessary, it
must be needed in some
counties", Gunn remarked.

In other business matters,

-Rejected a bid for a small
pick-up truck and called for

Two important factors which
will reduce these tragic deaths
are proper training for the

be two meetings on the drug

all interested citizens of Gulf
County. The first meeting will
be held on September 22, at
the Fellowship Hall of the

meeting will be held Septem-

the Ambulance Building in
Wewahitchka. Each one will
be sponsored by the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department
and presented by the Florida
Association of Drug Abuse,
and will deal primarily with
the education of parents in the

about drugs,"-Sheriff Murphy
said. "The drug problem in
our country will continue to
increase unless the law en-
forcement officer can solicit
help from concerned citizens
of the community. The drug

never be bigger than concern-

Blountstown, -Florioda, Juiy 17, 1935
Miss Virginia P. Moore
Tallahassee, Florida--- 5..
Dear Miss Moore:
Your letter in regard to the lots at Beacon Hill received: .
Miss Moore, unless you could see the plat, or you could go with me down there and tell
me exactly the location you want, I would not know what kind of price to make you. I sold .--- -
Miss Nimmo three lots and we are both counting on you building down there too.
I have been getting $250.00 for the front lots and $150.00, $125.00, $100.00 and $75.00 for the
back lots. These cheaper lots all face 70 and 80 foot streets leading_straight to the gulf. ---'- /
I feel sure we could trade on some of them if we could go down there and you stake out and
show me just where you would like to locate.
I am inclosing you a Blue Print of my property checking out the lots that has been sold,
the first three lots on the plat reading from left to right is where the nice house and wind mill
is located.
You cannot loose by buying lots at Beacon Hill now, Mr. Packard, the man that looks
after the DuPonts land down there, is offering for sale only 20 lots of their tract this season
at $750.00 each. This only shows what they think of Beacon Hill.
You come over the first chance you get and we will trade on the lot,
Thanking you for your inquiry, I am,

The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met August 12, in
regular session with the fol-
lowing members present:
Douglas C. Birmingham,
Chairman' Jimmy O.0. Gort-
man, William R. Branch,
James L. Tankersley, and Leo
Iennedy. Others present
were: George Y. Core, 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 am. Reverend Larry
Wells, Minister, United Pente-
costal Church, opened the
meeting with prayer, followed
by the pledge to the flag.
The minutes of July 22 and
August 1, were read, ap-
proved, and adopted.
The Chairman announced
that the first business would
be a continuation of two public
eari that were continued
.from e July 22nd meeting.
.i e Cnlih.nan called.for for
Wctons, i- any, to the ex-
changing of portion of Mr.
Brown's property that a public
road was constructed on by
error. There being no com-
plaints, there was a motion by
Commissioner Gortmin, sec-
onded by: -Commissioner
Birmingham, and it was un-
ailmously carried that the ex-
-chnge of property be madeas
per legal advertisement here-
in --
The Chairman called for
objections, if any, for the
closing of several streets in St.
SJoseph Shores Subdivision.
SThe Clerk advised the Board
that Mr. Robert W. Bellows,
Jr., owner of property in the
subdivision, has objected to
the closing of these streets.
There was a motion by Com-
missioner Tankersley, second-
ed by Commissioner Branch,
and it was unanimously car-
ried that this question be
tabled.
The Clerk read a prelimin-
ary report on the 1980 census
of Gulf County. This report
shows a total population for
1970 of 10,096 and for 1900 of
9,860, a loss of 236. Each
member of the Board expres-
sed their disbelief in Gulf
County losing 286people over
piee'past -te years: The Clerk
ald he has contacted Mr. Bob
"Harrington, the District Man-
ager for the Bureau of Census
and registered an oral protest
as to the 1980 count of only
9,860 and reported that all
such records as water meters,
electrical meters, telephone
connections, sales of auto.
tags, fishing licenses, occupa-
tional licenses, the number of
new homes, and the increase
in the number of students in
the County School System,.
indicate substantial increase
should have been shown.
Commissioner Kennedy point-
edout that thevoters regis-
tration records show that in
1970WO there were 5,010 on the list
and today there are 6,385. He
said in the 1970 census count a
great number of people all
over the county reported that
they were not counted and that
the entire community of Dal-
keith was not counted. The
Clerk then advised the com-
mission what must be done in
filing a protest according to
information in the Bureau of
Census Pamphlet D-77, page
three.
The Chairman stated that it
will be impossible to furnish
the Bureau of Census the
actual names and addresses of
those citizens of Gulf County
that were not counted, how-
ever, he will give a written
protest based on the informa-
tion here in above mentioned.
Upon motion by, Commis-
sioner Gortman, seconded by
Commissioner Branch, and
unanimous vote, the Board
cepted right of way ease-
Rents from Charles H. May-
ban, recorded in OR Book 82,
page 449 and from L. 0. Drew,
recorded in OR Book 82, page
432.
Mr. H. O. Pridgeon, tax
collector, reported that the
Department of Revenue has
ordered the 1979 taxes paid by
American Rail Box Car Com-
pany in the amount of $59.43 be
refunded. There was a motion
by Commissioner Tankersley,
seconded by Commissioner
Gortman, and unanimously
carried that said refund be
made.
The Board voted to pay for
the meals for Mrs. Jessie
Anderson, a delegate to the
conference on aging to be held
September 10-19 min Orlando.
The Clerk was instructed to
mhke advance payment of
$48.00 to Mrs. Anderson.
The Board accepted a water
heater from Fred J. Kleeb,
Jr., to be installed in the old
courthouse in Wewahithcka.
The Board directed that
inventory item 210-15, a 1966
International truck be trans-


ferred from the St. Joe
'mbulance Squad records to
I. City of Port St. Joe.
A discussion was had as to
the vacation policy for county
employees that have been off
several months on workmen's


compensation. It was decided
that the present-policy will not
be chaned.. .
-The ty of Port St. Joe
questioned the Board as to
what recourse to take when a
household in Oak Grove fails
Sto connect to the water and
sewer system and when the
customer fails to pay his
monthly bills and when the
water is disconnected. The
Roard authorized, the city to
use thesame action that would
be taken if this was in the City.
Commissioner Tankersley
discussed whether or not
Certain indigent hospital bills
should be paid by. the County.
The Board fully realizes that
the hospitals must be paid for
their services, but cannot
understand why the State
Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services does
not have a program to take
care of such cases: The
Chairman said he willinvesti-
gate this matte'; '
FredJ.Kleeb,Jr,, Veterans
ServiceOfficer, by-.letter,
informed the Board that he is
having veterans-from Apa-
lachicolaand Eastpoint come
to his office seeking.help. He
suggested that he be allowed
to go to Apalachicola one day
.a week:to holdregular office
hours there proving Frank-
lin County would pay for this
service. At this point in the
meeting, a telephone call was
made to the Franklin County
Courthouse; the information
received was that the Vete-
ran's Officer resigned and has
not been replaced at this time,
but the Veteran's Office will
reopen as soon as a new
officer can be found. The
Chairman stated in view of
this information no action will
be taken on this matter.
Tommy Pitts read a letter
. from the St Joseph Telephone
and Telegraph Company with
reference to the saidcompany
maintaining the Gulf County
Radio Network. The' Board
directed Mr. Pitts to get
additional information as,. to
the services and costs. "
SRobert Nations, Florida En-
gineering Associates, present-
ed a release of contract for
engineering services. The
-Board, at a previous meeting,
voted- to 'ae deptthis 'agree-
ment and also voted pay
$2,500.00 for services rendered
but never paid. Mr. Nations
asked that the minutes of this
meeting reflect that Florida
Engineering Associates per-
formed the service of revising
the engineering studies and
made a public works applica-
ion for a grant and loan for
the White City and Beaches
Water System and is receiving
only $2,500.00 for this work,
but the Board has now em-
ployed another engineering
firm to do the same thing at a
fee oft$15,000.00. Commission-
er Branch challenged this
statement, stating it did not
recent the true facts in
eite case.
Mr. Nations then discussed
variances regarding contour
lines and length of blocks on
proposed plates of San Bias
Estates and Cape San Bias
Gulfside. The Board agreed to
.advertise for a public hearing
to be held August 26.
Mr. Oscar Raffield inform-
ed the Board he was opposed
'to ia ditch the County is
planning to construct behind
.his home. He said if the
County would install culverts
in this ditch he would approve
of the project. He said that the
ditch does not touch his
property but is near enough to
cause him concern, that it
would cause erosion because it
was going to be so deep.
co rmi *Riw **-"-* -"** **-
Commissioner Branch said
the ditch will only be two feet
deep which should not cause
erosion. It was decided to
inspect this site after the close
of this meeting.... _. .
protested the fact that the
Church of God was getting
some extra paving and that he
didn't know if they were
Spaying for it or not, but he was
getting extra paving at his
home and he was having to
pay for it.
Tommy Pitts presented Es-
timate number two for work
completed by Florida asphalt
Paving Company in the a-
mount of $147,577.23 and
recommended approval and
payment of this bill. There
was a motion by Commission-
er Gortman, seconded by
Commissioner Branch, and it
was unanimously carried, that
said bill be paid.
The Attorney discussed the
request of the United States
Army Corps of Engineers
requested resolution provid-
ing approval of a permit for
maintenance dredging of the
Apalachicola. The Chairman
said this Board is meeting
with the other five counties
bordering the river, the en-
gineers, and representatives
from the State, on August 14,
in Blountstown where this
matter will be discussed and


that this Board will take
official action after, returning
from that meeting, providing
the engineers give the county


a firm statement on some
work requested by the county.
Commissioner Gortman in-
formed the Board that there is
an attempt to organize a
Wewahitchka Historical
Society. He said the society, if
organized, is requesting the
county to allow them to use the
old courtroom in Wewahitch-
ka as their headquarters. He
then suggested the county
pursue a grant to restore the
old courtroom. Commissioner
Kennedy said that the Apala.
chee Regional Planning Coun-
cil is working on a grant for
this purpose and the outlook is
excellant at this .time.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed a drainage problem on
Garrison Avenue caused by
the property owner closing the
large drainage ditch that once
emptied into Pattons Bayou.
He said that water is standing
in the location of this closed
ditch, causing a traffic hazard
and also causing the road bed-
to deteriorate. The landowner
will be contacted as' to a
drainage easement.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed the need for a supply of
clay that can be used on the
track being prepared on the
Port St. Joe High School site
between the football field and
Niles Road. After discussing
several sources of clay, it was
decided that some land own-
ers be contacted 'for the
material needed.
Commissioner Kennedy
suggested that, members of
the Board and others, includ-
ing the press, seek out those
citizens in the county that
were not counted in the latest
census. The Board agreed to
do this.
Commissioner Kennedy re-
ported that he is a delegate to
the Select Committee on Ag-
ing and will be attending its
meeting on September 16-19.
Tom Hudson informed the
County that Mexico Beach is
asking for a referendum elec-
tion on the'question ofwhether
or not Mexico Beach may be
annexed to Gulf County. The
Attorney advised that this is a
question of the Legislature,
but such election would ex-
press the feelings of the
citizens. : .
'he Chairman said he :is
receiving complaints from St.
Joe Beach citizens as to the
County renaming Santa Alnna
Street to Santa Maria Street.
The Attorney stated that such
complaints should be heard at
the time of the public hearing
on this matter.
Tommy Pitts informed the
Board that there is a question
as to the new sick leave policy.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Gortman,
seconded by Commissioner
Branch, and it was unani-
mously carried, to reaffirm,
that an employee taking sick
leave'*cannot return to work
until he presents a doctor's
release.
The Chairman reported that
the Senior Citizens Associa-
tion has requested permission
to store old newspapers in one
of the rooms at the old jail in
Wewahithcka. He appointed
Commissioner Gortman to
look into this request. ,
The Chairman informed the
Board that a home owner on
C-22-A is requesting the Coun-
ty to fill in the ditch in front of
his property and that he is
filling in his lot to be level with
the road. in discussion of this
matter, it was determined
that if this is done, it could be a
continuing drainage problem
in that area. It was decided to
make a site inspection before
a final decision can be made.
Ed Leuchs, Director, Apala-
chee Regional Planning Coun-
cil, discussed legislation re-
cently passed that requires

local Agreement between the
