Santa Claus will arrive here in

Ray says there is still time for
organizations wishing to enter floats
in the parade to contact him and make
arrangements.
Ray says the parade is already
lined up for a fine morning of
entertainment, "but we still have
hopes of receiving confirmations
which would make the parade of even
more interest", he said.

Number Seven


18 Year Old




Crash Victim


Eighteen-year-old Rocky J.
Williams, 607 Garrison Ave-
nue, Port St. Joe,, became Gulf
County's seventh traffic fatal-
ity of 1980 early last Saturday
morning, when he was killed
in a single car accident at
about 12:05 a.m., about one
and a half miles west of
Highland View on U.S. High-
way 98.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol Trooper Bill God-
win, Williams was killed in-
stantly and Jerry Gliem, also
of Port St. Joe, a passenger in
the fatal car, was injured


when the car overturned and
struck a palm tree.
Gliem was taken by Gulf
County Volunteer Ambulance
Service to Municipal Hospital
where he was hospitalized
with cuts, abrasions and
bruises following the accident.
Trooper Godwin said the
Williams vehicle was west-
bound on U.S. 98, when it went,
off the south shoulder of the
road. The driver attempted to
correct a skid and struck the
palm tree sideways, striking
the tree on the driver side. The
car then flipped over one and a


half times and came to rest on
its top.
Williams had been partially
ejected from the vehicle dur-
ing the roll-over.
Investigating officers, God-
win, Trooper Al Harrison and
Deputy Sheriff Jack Davilla
still have the fatality under
investigation.
Godwin said Williams was
one of the 28 who died on
Florida 'highways during the
102 hour Thanksgiving holiday
week end. Godwin said it was
predicted 38 would be killed
over the holiday.


Takes First Step to




Extend City Limit


The Port St. Joe City Commission has committed itself to
making an attempt to enlarge the City Limits of the
community by at least a section line to the north, east and
south and in action Tuesday night, set the process into
motion.
Tentative plans are for the city limits to be extended
north to the Gulf County Canal, east by a section line and
south to Highway 98, enclaving Oak Grove and Ward Ridge.
City Attorney William J. Rish was asked to make a study
of the procedure two weeks ago by the Board and reported
Tuesday he has made some preliminary contacts with land
owners in the areas involved. "I recommend you set up a
work-shop meeting with these property owners to discuss the
matter", Rish advised. He said he had received no opposition
as yet from the major property owners in the area involved,
but advised, "You will need their acquiescence in the matter
if you want to make your attempt the easy way."
The City has several ways in which it can extend the
limits of the city, one of which is by agreement of the
property owners involved.
The Commission sees the need for more property within
the boundaries of the city and hopes to get the lines extended
before such an extension becomes a major problem. "We
really need the extra area to build homes in now", Mayor


Frank Pate remarked Tuesday night.
Extending the city limits has been in the back of the
minds of the Commission for the past five or six years, but no
definite action has been taken other than discussion as to how
far the extension should go.
SOne of the problems faced by the City under the present
boundaries is that there is no area zoned for mobile homes
and the City can see the need for this provision. An extension
of the limits would allow an area, within the city, to be zoned
for mobile homes without disturbing the present zoning code.
PURCHASES CONSIDERED
The Commission considered several purchases of material
and equipment Tuesday night, the major item being
purchase of a new garbage truck.
Street Superintendent Dorton Hadden had asked the
Commission to purchase a new garbage packer-loader to
replace an old vehicle. Hadden had requested a back loader
machine, such as is now being used for house to house
garbage collection.
In order to counteract rising costs in the collection
service, the Commission had been considering going to a
system where all garbage must be bagged and placed by the
curb on garbage collection days to cut down on labor and

More People in County


But Report Says Fewer In Cities


The 1980 census of popula-
tion and housing has ended in
the 10 Florida counties han-
dled by the temporary census
district office in Fort Walton
Beach which has just closed
its doors, the Bureau of the


Census, U.S. Department of
Commerce, announced this
week.
Final reports from the cen-
sus office, which are still not
official, shows thatGulf Coun-
ty gained 355 people since the
1970 census, but both munici-
palities in the county showed a


loss of population.
The 1970 census showed Gulf
County with a population of
10,096. The 1980 count showed
10,451.
Both Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka recorded a loss
of population in the unofficial
count. Port St. Joe dropped to

Acting Property Appraiser
Charles Brock said yesterday
the county's latest version of
appraised property for taxing
purposes should be ready to go
to the State Revenue Depart-
ment for approval late this
week or early next week.
Brock said he has been
assured the Department will
consider the latest list and
give an opinion within three
days after the list has been
sent to Tallahassee. With this
time-table, it will be January
before any tax notices can be
sent out, even if everything
goes right in the process.
EARLY PAYMENTS
In the meantime, Tax Col-
lector Harland Pridgeon is
considering if it is legal to
allow tax payers to make
tentative payments on their
1981 tax bill this year in
anticipation of their tax bill.
"Many tax payers like to pay
their bill before the end of the
year in order to get a federal
tax deduction", Pridgeon
said.
Pridgeon is investigating
the legality of allowing tax
payers to make estimated
payments this year and pay
the adjustments or receive a
refund for any overpayment
after the bills are sent out.
"If we can do this, we will",
Pridgeon said.


As for the appraisal roll, it
has been in Panama City for
the past 10 days, waiting to get
on the computer for prepara-
tion for the Revenue Depart-
ment. "I have been told the
list will be run this week",
Brock said. "As soon as we get
it back, we will immediately
get it to Tallahassee for
processing".
VALUES UP
Brock said the total proper-
ty valuations for taxing pur-
poses will be up in Gulf County
this year, "even with the
$15,000 homestead exemp-
tion."
Brock says he thinks the
latest version of a property
roll for the county will be
accepted by the Revenue
Department after being turn-
ed down earlier this year for
inadequate valuations of the
property listed.
BUDGET STARTED
Even though the property
appraisal rolls are not yet
firm, the Gulf County Com-
mission has already started
working up a dollar budget in
order to be closer to a finalized
budget when the rolls are
returned and a millage rate
can be set. The Board met
Monday night to begin the
preliminary work on the new
budget.


3,981 from 4,401 in 1970.
Wewahitchka showed a loss of
155 during the decade to a total
of 1,684 in the 1980 enumera-
tion.
All totals released by the
census bureau have been
challenged by the county and
both cities.
Housing in the county and in
both cities took a sizeable
jump in the count. The county
is now said to have 4,722
homes, up from 3,795 in 1970.
Port St. Joe had an increase of
84 housing units from 1,362 in
1970 to 1,450 in the recent
count. Wewahitchka showed
an increase in housing from
598 in 1970 to 738 in 1980.
The census bureau says the

Only Three Weeks to Christmas; Gift Shopping Time


According to the faithful old calendar on
the wall, three weeks from today, we will all
be celebrating Christmas Day.
Add another week to that and we will all
be celebrating New Year's Day and be
embarking on 1981 with sort of an apprehen-
sion rather than the gusto and zest a new year
deserves.
But, first things first.
With Christmas only three weeks away in
the future, it means we must all rouse
ourselves and get that Christmas shopping
done.
Where will you do yours?
The Christmas parade this coming week
end reminds us we should at least try to do it
here in Port st. Joe. With the energy shortage,
it only makes sense to save the energy of
travelling somewhere else to do our shopping,
and with the price of energy, we can all save a
little money by staying at home this
Christmas.
Who knows? If you stay home to do your
shopping just once, you may like it and decide
to make a habit of it.
On the other side of the coin, the local
: merchants can use your business. The recent
business recession caused by high interest
States, has hit Port St. Joe merchants just like
Sit has others. They could use your business
:;and most would probably tell you they


appreciated your stopping by if you were to do
so. Also, we depend on our merchants for
donations for this and that activity during the
year and it is only the fair thing to do for us to
scratch the back which scratches ours.
Prices are as low here as anywhere. You
can give us all that old song and dance about
how you saved half here or a third there or
$20.00 at the other place, but we all buy things
and we all know what they cost. Unless there


are some unusual circumstances, prices are
just about the same everywhere on a like item,
with very little variation. The price of energy
makes that small variation not quite so
attractive for those who would go out of town
"to save money" anymore.
If all this just doesn't grab you, we'll tell
you why we are going to shop in Port St. Joe.
First, we are going to trade with our friends,
because we find they always give us a better


deal than strangers. Second, we are going to
trade here to save money. When it's all over
with and the dust has settled, we will have
gotten by just as cheaply as anyone who goes
out of town. Third, and most important of all,
we're going to use that time we might spend
travelling out of town doing something we
want to do or need to do. We can't see wasting
it on the road, driving, when we would much
rather be doing something else.


Government Makes Life Rough for Hospitals


A gentleman wrote us a letter the other
day regarding the hospital and wondering why
he couldn't get certain services there and save
him some trips to Panama City.
First, we wonder if he tried to get the
services done at Municipal?
The real point we wish to make is to reply
to his query as to why the hospital is losing
money.
That one is easy and it's not so easy.
To answer his question, however, we
would like to refer him to the December
Reader's Digest, which has an article in its
pages exploring the chaos the federal
government is making with hospital adminis-
tration, operation and especially the profit or


break even picture of virtually every hospital
in the nation.
The biggest problem with local hospitals
and the government, other than the eternal
regulations, which the article says come out
daily, is the payment schedule the govern-
ment has for hospitals and their care of
medicare and medicare patients.
Medicare doesn't hit the hospital quite so
hard as medicare, but both add considerably
to your hospital bill and the deficit of all local
hospitals.
Most hospitals now have some 45 percent
and up of their patient loads from these two
sources. Other than having the longest stays in
the hospital, the hospitals are also reiinbursed


the least amount for their care.
Mind you, these people need care. In
many cases, however, rules of medicare and
medicare make hospitalization the only route
the patient can afford, when he could easily be
an out-patient, a procedure which the two
systems does not pay for.
When the hospital stay is over, the
government pays the hospital what the
government thinks is the hospital's actual
costs in the patient's care. Often, this*
remuneration is as low as half the hospital's
regular rates and charges.
Who has to make up the slack? The paying
patient and the sponsoring organization which
runs the hospital.
Read the article. We recommend it.

- According to Dr. J. Law-
r..ence Angel, curator of Phy-
sical Anthropology Smithson-
iim Institution in Washington,
.D.C., the human skull found
recently in Simmons Bayou
was that of a Native American
Indian, according to Sheriff
Ken Murphy of the Gulf.
-County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff Murphylsays that
a-ccording to Dr. Angel, the
skeleton, in his opinion, dates
Back before European dis-
cover of the new world. It did
not show signs of long im-
mersion in salt water, but has
lain for a long time in a
marshy area. Dr. Angel says
that indications are that the
skullwas that of a female, and
fits into a group of Native
Americans, which settled in
the Pensacola area. It is very
: probable that the skull came
from an indian cemetery near
the Simmqns Bayou area.
: According to Dr. Angel,
Sheriff Murphy said, "the
skull is not connected with the
skeleton found near Wewa-
bitchka."
There was damage to the
skull, but it was determined
that the damage occurred after
death, according to Dr. Angel.
What will happen to the
skull, now? Sheriff Murphy
Stated that he was undecided.


"Dr. Angel requested per-
mission to display the skull at
the Smithsonian Institution,
but we don't know at this time
if that's what will be done with
it," Sheriff Murphy said.
"Because of the news arti-


cles on the skull, we have
received some new informa-
tion on the skeleton found in
Wewahitchka two years ago
and we are actively checking
out this information to try to
determine the identity."


Rotary Charity


Ball Saturday


Bill Lyles, chairman of the
annual Rotary Charity Ball,
says tickets for the social
event are selling at a brisk
pace.
The ball, to be held on
Saturday, December 6, begin-
ning at 9:00 p.m., has been a
project of the club for the past
18 years.
All proceeds from the ball
are used by the club to finance
charitable and youth activities
in the area. Over the past
years, some $25,000 has been
realized from the ball and has
been used to finance every-
thing from free dental clinics
for underprivileged children
to scouting activities in the
Port St. Joe area. The funds
are administered by a non-
profit corporation with an


independent board of direc-
tors.
The dance will be held in the
Centennial Building with
music to be furnished by Ray
Smith and the Kay Fast Trio.
Smith is a former bandmaster
here in Port St. Joe and he,
along with the trio, have
furnished the music at the
dance for the past three years.
Tickets for the event are
$15.00 per couple and are on
sale by all members of the
Rotary Club.
Tables may be reserved by
calling Ted Cannon at the
Florida Bank.

in Britain is dart-throwing.

Thanksgiving Featured A Trip Through Woods to Grandma's House


IT WAS OVER THE RIVER AND
through the woods, to Grandmama's
house we went... for Thanksgiving.
We took off Wednesday afternoon,
.leaving many things we should have
attended to unattended, and spent the
week end with Frenchie's momma,
enjoying Thanksgiving and eating too
much. All my resolutions about cutting
: down and getting in shape for Christ-
nmas I made here several weeks ago,
-- were all shattered with one meal on
Thanksgiving day.
I just couldn't stand it.
When I joined the crowd of
relatives who took their plates and
made their way along that sideboard
:loaded with goodies, my resolve all
came unravelled and, I admit, I ate too
much.
To show that my will power isn't
Completely so much mush in these
Smatters, I didn't eat as much too much
- as I did last Thanksgiving. My "too
Much" was just a medium amount too
Much this year. I was over it the next
Sday. I even ate a turkey sandwich for
Dinner Friday.
That's proof I didn't eat too much


on Thanksgiving day.
Friday evening, I fell off the wagon
again.
Grandmama lives precariously

cream store. The thing is not two miles
away.
We all piled in the car and headed
for Baskin and Robbins where I
indulged in my favorite of their flavors,
pralines and cream, and a new one,
peanut butter and chocolate.
If you have ever eaten Baskins and
Robbins ice cream, you could under-
stand my moment of weakness.


OUR TRIP TO grandmomas took
the place of a trip to the mountains,
which we didn't have time to take,
anyhow.
All through the woods in north


Florida, and southern and middle
Georgia, the dogwoods, the blackjacks,
the oaks, the gums, all are turning in
color and have put on a riot of hues of
reds, browns, golds and in-betweens.
Even if you didn't have a grandmama
to go see in this neck of the woods, the
drive is worth it, even in $1.25 a gallon
gasoline, to see the colors fall has
painted in our southern woodlands.


Crossing the Apalachicola River at
Chattahoochee is an experience well
worth the effort to go see.
Friday afternoon, I took a short
(very short) stroll into the woods


behind grandmama's house and I found
one bush back there which had leaves
which were a rich, rich green on the
bottom side, and the top was just as
scarlet red as the bottom was emerald
green.
If I knew all the names of these
different trees and bushes, I might
could describe it to you more vividly.
But when it gets outside an oak or a


blackjack or gum, the only way I can
describe a tree is to tell you it's
Different from a pine tree.
+++
SPEAKING OF TREES turning;
coming back home Saturday morning,
we pulled up behind a huge tractor
trailer on 1-75, headed this way, loaded
to the gills with Christmas trees.
The truck was carrying a Michigan
license tag, so I suppose the trees were
also from Michigan.
Frenchie remarked, "No wonder
those trees cost so much money,
travelling like that and coming from so
far away."
When you think of it, that particular
load of trees was not any too soon.
Christmas is just a hop, skip, a jump
and three issues of The Star away.
It's time to get the tree up ... or
least to begin thinking about getting it
up.
+++
I'M READY FOR the holiday
season which is right smack upon us
now. Not only does it make people a
little more mellow toward one another,


but it also means it's time for the cool
weather to come along and take away
the summer's heat.
We've already lit the fire place at
our house. As you know, we have
already had a few nippy nights here,
when a fire felt pretty good.
We got in on the fireplace thia
before those days came. One night,
couple of weeks ago, I came home and
Frenchie had the fireplace going ...
and the doors and windows open so she
could stand it in the house.
She likes that fireplace.
So do I.
That's why I like the fall and winter
holidays. As the days pass by, there will
be more and more opportunities to light
the fireplace and watch the fire play
and feel the cozy warmth on my
backside as I slide up to the hearth
hind-most to get a good toast.
And I don't want to hear any of you
jokers complaining, "I'll sure be glad
when warm weather gets here again." I
don't want to hear this until the middle
of February, when I imagine I will be
joining right in with your chorus.

Carpet for

Your Den
It has been often stated by
interior decorators that a
room should be designed for
the mode of living of the
family that will use it. If your
family is casual, often gather-
ing around the television for
an evening's relaxation, then
your mode of living would
make your den the most
important design' features of
your home.
.And a den is not complete
without carpet. Carpet adds to
the warmth and softness of a
den. It helps to reduce noise,
and add comfort of the room
as we all know most children
are floor people, avoiding
furniture if at all possible, and
carpet is a necessity for them.

A man in his thirties paces
one-half block each morning
to the yellow block building
where he also seeks the skills
that may one day free him to
live independently and earn
his own living.
This woman and this man
are not obscure people living
in Seattle or Miami or New
York City-these are actual
people who exist in Gulf
County.
Like 19 others, they attend
the local Adult Activity Center
200 Peters Street where re-
tarded adults who are no
longer eligible for public sch-
ool education receive develop-
mental training to enable
them to eventually live in-


diendently in the commun-
ity.
This center also provides
supportive services for indivi-
duals who are chosen to
relocate from state institu-
tions such as Sunland into the
area for residential training.
Gulf County's Adult Activity
Center, which opened in
March, 1976, is supported by
the Association for Retarded
Citizens (ARC). The ARC,
guided by its president, Rev.
Larry Wells, has the responsi-
bility of providing community
education.
The ARC is also committed
to Special Olympics. By fost-
ering the popular nationwide
program, the ARC is provid-
ing competitive athletics for
the retarded, who are often
secondly disabled with ep-
ilepsy and cereal palsy.
Gulf's ARC needs funds to

meet the registration, trans-
portation and award expenses
to send its participants to the
county, district and state
meets.
Rev. Wells, Sammy Stall-
worth, Rita Sanders, Chester
Gant, Bob Moore, Walter
Wilder, Charles Davis, Cha-
rles Tharp and John Byrd are
ARC board members desig-
nated to shoulder the awe-
some task of maintaining
these excellent opportunities
and services for the retarded
citizens in Gulf County and
Mexico Beach.
However, the will to help
others is ingrained is all of
Gulf County's and Mexico
Beach's populace. The way to
help will become apparent on
December 12-13. Support your

Last Sunday afternoon, R.A.
Driesbach Day was com-
memorated with Chancellor
Commander, Alton Fennell,
serving as Master of Cere-
monies. This is an annual

Youth Rally

SSaturday

There will be a youth rally
immediately following the
Christmas parade Saturday
Dec. 6th. The rally will get
under way at approximately
11:00 a.m. in The Florida
Power parking lot. Local
youth groups, ensembles, etc.,
will be singing and the
featured guest will be Gulf
County's own Jerry Arhelger.
Jerry is constantly being
involved in revivals and con-
certs both here in America
as well as abroad. He is much
in demand as a speaker and
: musician.
Even though this is a youth
rally, everyone of all ages are
encouraged to make your way
to the Florida Power parking
lot at 11:00 a.m. or immediate-
ly following the parade.


event sponsored by the
Knights of Pythians and Cal-
anthes.
A church service was held
and dedicated to the works
amd memory of long time
State Chancellor Commander,
Raymond A. Driesbach. The
local chapter of the Knights of
Pythians No. 77 bears his
name. He was a resident of
Gulf county at the time of his
passing. Loyal brothers and
sister of the lodges hold fond
memories of Sir Driesbach
because he served, unself-
ishly, the city, county, and
state.
The program was held at the
New Bethel A.M.E. Church. It
followed a simple format
which included singing, com-
memorative speeches, and a
sermon by Rev. 0. H. Walker.
Chancellor Alton Fennell
was gratified that the Knights,
Calanthes, and general public
responded so generously with
their time and finances. He
extends his thanks to everyone
who helped make the day a
success. He also extends
warm regards to Mrs. R.A.
Driesbach and family of the
late R.A. Driesbach.

Last year's Sharks were 18-9
for the season and were
District and Conference
champions. Last year's team
was runner-up in the Regional
play-offs.
The Sharks had their first
test last Friday in a Thanks-
giving jamboree in Marianna.
The Sharks won both their
quarter appearances in the
game, defeating Cottondale,
11-6 and Chipley, 21-6.
Belin says the team this
year should provide plenty of
exciting basketball for the
local fans. "We have the
experience and good shooting
of our two returning starters
from last year as well as some
good talent coming to the


team. We should be fast,
accurate in shooting and excit-
ing to watch", Belin said.
The Sharks will play 22
games on their regular sche-
dule and enter two tourneys
other than the traditional
tournaments at the end of the
season. The Sharks will enter
a Christmas tournament on
December 19 and 20 at a place
yet to be announced and a
second tournament in late
January, also at a place yet to
be decided.

travel costs. This type collection would necessitate purchase
or another type collection vehicle.
Haddon's request was tabled until he could be present at
a Commission meeting to further discuss the matter. Hadden
was on vacation this week.
The new type garbage pick-up is being considered
because there are so few residential streets in the city with
alleys for the garbage truck to travel in. Presently, collectors
walk to the rear of the lot, collect the garbage and carry it
the back to the truck where it is deposited. This takes an
ng excessive amount of time and labor, both of which amount to
of a considerable expense over the year, adding to the collection
for' service charge.
an Other purchases considered were bids received on steel
ys. grate manhole covers, which was tabled to consider a less
y expensive alternative and purchase of a new 200 horsepower
electric motor for the Wastewater Treatment plant.



, Census Count


(Continued from page 1)
final count from the 1980
census will be released in
April of 1981.
Preliminary population and
housing figures for local gov-
ernments involved have been
sent to officials in each
county and community. These
preliminary totals are subject
to later revisions.
Completed census question-
naires from the Fort Walton
Beach office have been ship-
ped to a census processing
facility where they will be fed


through high-speed equipment
which microfilms each page.
The microfilm is then scanned
electronically and the data
from the census forms-ex-
cluding names and addres-
ses-transmitted directly to
the Census Bureau's compu-
ters in Suitland, Md., just
outside Washington, D.C.
Once computer tabulation of
the data has been completed,
final population and housing
counts will be released early

Nature Produces Material for Colorful Arrangements


As summer ends and winter
approaches it is fun to take
long walks looking for dried
materials to place into perm-
anent flower arrangements.
Nature supplies a vast num-
ber of interesting shapes in.
twigs, seed pods, and leaves
that can be used if we open our
eyes and imagination while
looking. Any dried plant
material can add to an ar-
rangement so don't overlook
twigs with interesting shapes,
sedges, grasses, or weeds.


* The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met this date: Oct-
ober 28, 1980 with the
following members present:
Douglas C. Birmingham,
Chairman, Jimmy O. Gort-
man, William R. Branch,
James L. Tankersley, and Leo
kennedy. Others present
were: George Y. Core, Clerk,
K.E. Murphy, Sheriff, and
James Buchanan, Deputy
Sheriff, William J. Rish, At-
torney, Lloyd Whitfield, Road
Superintendent, and Tommy
Pitts, Administrative Assist-
ant.
The meeting came to order
at 7:oo p.m. The Attorney
opened the meeting with pray-
er, followed by the pledge to
the flag.
The minutes of October 14,
1980, were read, approved,
and adopted.
Mr. Jerry Brooks, District
Forester, Division of Fores-
try, Florida Department of
Agriculture, filed his annual
report of activities for the
fiscal year 1979-80. He also
informed the Board that he
has found a surplus fire truck
for the Overstreet Fire De-
partment. Mr. Brooks said it
will take about $300.00 to put it
in good condition and that the
members of the fire depart-
ment will inspect this truck to
determine if they want it, and
that he is also looking for
equipment for the Howard
Creek Fire Department.
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor, Tax
Collector elect, appeared be-
fore the Borad on behalf of
Harland O. Pridgeon, Tax
Collector. She told the Board
that Mr. Pridgeon
requested an additional
$2,349.00 for his first quarters'
expenses. She said this was
needed for the following items
in the budget: $534.00-Salary,
$800.00-Postage, $165.00-Tele-
phone, and $850.00-Printing.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Branch, second-
ed by Commissioner Tankers-
ley, and it was unanimously
carried that the Clerk pay the
Tax Collector an additional
$2,349.00 for the first quarter
requisition.
With Commissioner Tank-
ersley acting Chairman, Com-
missioner Birmingham said
that the Board agreed and
adopted the same budget for
1980-81 as the 1979-80 budget;
that in the middle of last
budget year all employees
were granted a 7 percent
salary increase which includ-
ed the matching benefits of
retirement, social security
and workmans compensation
insurance, but that these
increases were not reflected in
the 1979-80 or 1980-81 budgets.
He then made a motion to
increase each budget for the.
first quarter of the fiscal year
1980-81 to reflect these
increases. Motion seconded by
Commissioner Branch, and
unanimously carried.
The Board then directed the
Clerk to make item to item
budget transfers within each
budget for the fiscal year
1979-80 to bring each item into


Strawflowers, Baby's bre-
ath, Statice, Thistles, Yar-
row, Goldenrod, and a few
other flowers will dry natur-
ally if hung upside down in a
dry, warm area. The flowers
should be picked before they
are in full bloom since they
will open slightly while dry-
ing. Foliage should be re-
moved from the stem. The
natural stem on Strawflowers
should be removed and a wire
stem inserted, however, this is
not necessary with the other


balance, retroactive to Sept-
tember 30, 1980.
Commissioner Birmingham
resumed the Chair.
Mr. Steve Nations, Presi-
dent, Florida Engineering As-
sociates, presented a plat of
Cape San Bias Gulfside and
Bayside Subdivision. He told
the Board he is representing
Florida Title and Mortgage
Company, Trustee to Cape
San Blas Joint Venture, who is
requesting final approval of
said plat. The Attorney ad-
vised the Board that he owns
an interest in this subdivision
and that if legal advise is
required, he will disqualify
himself in favor of an outside
attorney. The Administrative
Assistant reported that he has
checked the subdivision plat
and it meets all requirements
of the plat law and recom-
mended its approval. Mr.
Nations told th Board that his
firm did not prepare this plat
himself, but did check it for
compliance and computa-
tions. The Board voted un-
animously to approve this
plat. Recorded in Plat Book 3,
pages 24, 24-A, 24-B, and 24-C.
Mr. and Mrs. Edward R.
Barrentine, owners of pro-
perty on County Road 22-A,
East of the Dead Lakes Dam
requested the Board to assist
them in securing a septic tank
permit to be used in connec-
tion with a store. Commis-
sioner Gortman told the Board
that he has made an investiga-
tion of this matter. He then
outlined what would have to be
done in order for the local
Health Department to issue a
permit for this location. It was
suggested that the Commis-
sion write to the proper State
Official and request a letter
stating exactly what must be
done by the owners of the
property in order to receive a
permit. Commissioner Branch
told the Board that because
this Commission has no
jurisdiction in such matters,
the letter of directions from
the State should be directed to
the applicants, Mr. and Mrs.
Edward R. Barrentine. Mr.
Milton Fisher, owner ofpro-
perty abutting the Barrentine
property intervened at this
point and informed the Board
that the Barrentine drain-field
crosses over on his property
and that he had removed the
portion of the line on his lot.
He further stated that the
Barrentine's had built on
county right of way and if they
could build on right of way,
why couldn't every other
person. After further discus-
sion, the Chairman requested
the Clerk to contact the
proper state official and re-
quest that the Barrentines be
given a list of requirements
for this particular site for the
issuance of the permit.
The Board requested the
Administrative Assistant to
determine the location and
width of the right of way on
C-22A.
By letter, the Tax Collector
requested the following tax

The ship was on station in
the Indian Ocean during July

Many of the crew took
advantage of the opportunity
to visit the Acropolis in
Athens, and the pyramids

flowers take longer to dry than
in silica gel and it may be
difficult to dry delicate flo-
wers with high water content
such as rose buds.
Flowers may be dried with
desiccants when they are in
bud or just prior to full bloom
when they are at their peak of
color. Artists pastels may be
used to add color. Finely grate
the pastels into a dust. Mix
dust from various colors to
acheive a color similar to the
natural flower color. Place the
dust in a plastic bag and insert
the flower, holding onto the
stem. Dust the flower with the
pastel and remove it from the
bag. Shake off all excess dust.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, DEC. 4. 190


St. Joseph First County



Seat of Calhoun County


by George Atkins
Reprinted from The County
Record, Blountstown
Preliminary plans should be
started to make the 150th
anniversary of Calhoun Co-
unty more effective. St. Jo-
seph was founded to shorten
the cotton shipping distance
from the Flint and Chatta-
hoochee Rivers to the Gulf
port. Calhoun County was
organized and St. Joseph
made the county seat of
government. One area of old
Calhoun County which has re-
ceived little recognition in the
county's history is Wewa-
hitchka. This part of the
county was widely advertised
from 1870 through 1895. A
number of out-of-state people
made their homes along the
Dead Lakes, the Chipola
River, the Cut-Off and Iola.
One of the more interesting
early settlers was a Dr. Keyed
who began his medical prac-
tice in Marianna. He married
into the well known Hentz
family in Jackson County.
After the War between the
States he with scores of others
moved into the Wewahitchka
area and began the planting of
orange groves. The diary of
Dr. Hentz his brother-in-law
gives a vivid description of the
Keyes homes and the rec-
reational activities which the
orange grove owners enjoyed.
The diary reads in part: "The
tug reached Iola at 2 A.M.; I
.got out and sat by a fire on the
bluff, until I succeeded in
getting a guide to take me
down through the cut-off to the
house of Captain Smith-; his
name was McCabe-; we em-
barked an hour or so before
daybreak, and rowed down the
river into the cut off, in the
Pinkie-a neat little boat be-
longing to Judge White that he
had given me the privilege of
using-We reached the Cap-
tain's house at about sunrise-I
had my gun lying across my
lap and had one lovely drove
of ducks to come flying right
down the stream over my
head, but as it was Sunday
morning, I let them pass-and
it proved to be the only good
chance I had during my
visit-It was but a short dis-
Captain Smith's house-a large
rambling log building, with
large piazzas and shed
rooms. "
The date for this visit was
November 25,1875. Dr. Keyes
was actively engaged in start-
ing an orange grove on the
Dead Lakes and had not yet
constructed his home at the
grove which was later to be
named the NOOK. The Keyes
grove was described as being
on the rich bottom land
with immense splendid trees
heavily loaded with fruit.
The visit describes the hunt-
ing on the Lake from a
batteau, hpting the deer from
a stand and the excellent
fishing at the Trout hole which
is the place where the waters
from the Dead Lakes flows
into the Apalachicola River
the Cutt-off.
The life of Dr. Keyes family
and practice in medicine
receives much space in the'
diary of Dr. Hentz. The
several visits made from up
river to the NOOK for a
number of years is a vivid
description of the Apalachi-
cola River and Valley for
more than twenty years.
Scores of orange growers
followed Dr. Keyes in planting
and growing oranges. Mr.
Lindsay from a local nursing
home who was 104 years old on
November 14 was an em-
ployee of the citrus growers in
Wewahitchka as a young man.
Mr. Ben Pittswas superinten-
dent of a carpentry crew
which constructed orange
crates for the orange grove
owners for several years. The
fruit was harvested in the fall
crated in wooden boxes and
shipped down the Apalachi-
cola River and then shipped to
the Eastern markets on ocean


going vessels.
The Keyes family members
evidently were educated in
colleges in other parts of the
state or in out-of-state col-
leges. Local land records
shows William B. Keyes and
Charles Keyes as resident of
Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Eula
H. married into the Coachmen
family and lived in Brazil.
Linnie W. Keyes and her
husband William W. Pickens
lived in Bonham, Fannin
County, Texas. Julia and her
husband lived in Brooks
County, Georgia and other
members of the family moved
to St. Andrews when it was a
part of Washington County.
The deed for the one hun-
dred ninety acre NOOK Or-
ange Grove along the west
side on the Dead Lakes in
Wewahitchka had to be filed in
both Portuguese and in Fng-
lish. The interpreter described
his title as: "Johannoa Hochin
Christin Vought, Sworn Public
Translator matriculated in the
High Tribunal of Commerce of.
Rio de Janerio in German,
English, Danish, Swedish,
Dutch, French and Spanish.
The title of the instruments
reads: Empire of Brazil,


Provinces De Las Pauls
Termo Da Capital. A Part of
the beginning sentence is
written Tabillias Angels
Carlos De Abrian.
The Keyes and Coachman
were a part of the group which
decided to try their fortunes in
the Empire of Brazil after the
War Between the States. The
group later returned to the
United States.
From 1875 through the mid-
dle of 1890 all Florida was
encouraging the growing of
citrus fruit. Thousand of set-
tiers left their cooler industry
as did the other part of
Florida. Henry Sanford bro-
ught every variety of citrus
into the central Florida re-
gions where the growers were
practicing scientific horticul-
ture. Had the local growers
persuaded Lue Gim Gong to
make his home in here instead
of De Land we might have had
a hybridizing variety of
oranges which would with-
stand the cold. However
scores of small orange grow-
ers found citrus growing pro-
fitable for many years along
the Dead Lakes, The Cutt-off,
lola, Florida River, Ricco
Bluff, Sumtra, Amonia Lake


and many other areas of this
region.
Among the names of the
settlers in and around Wewa-
hitchka were Higgins and
Hollingers, Mrs. J.B. Stone
and a number of her children.
The Rish family first settled at
lola with others such as the
Buders, Burgesses, Hunters,
Smith, Macks, Rummells,
McNally, Rivers, Bush, Lan-
sley, Oaksey, Blacks, McFar-
lands and Baxters, Alder-
mans. J.P. Atkins and Thos.
Spencers were merchants in
Wewahitchka as were Shep
and Fannie Freeman. Dr.
Theo West and the McDaniels
lived near the Cut-Off.
Several Wewahitchka Lake
side lots were owned by J.K.
Isabell, Josie Pridgeon, Mrs.
M.C. Leath, T.A. Lansley, The
Rivers family, F.A. Bell, S.B.
Mack, E.Z. Taylor, J.R. Rich-
ards, and the Buford family.
More than one hundred
families owned property in
1890 which contributed to the
economy of the community.
Investors from large corpora-
tions found the land suitable to
make large returns for their
money expenditures.


Post Office Says, "Get


Cracking" OnHolidayMail


If you planned to send your
overseas Christmas gifts by
surface mail this year, you
missed the boat.
Deadlines for shipping mail
by the high seas expired
mid-November. The U. S. Post
Office says cards or parcels
intended for Christmas giving
must now be sent airmail only
to Europe, Africa, the Far or
Middle East, Central and
South America. Here are
airmail deadlines:
-Europe and Far East:
Cards Dec. 12. Parcels Dec.
8.
-North and Northwest Af-
rica: Cards Dec. 8.
--Southeast and West Afri-
ca: Cards Dec. 8.
-Middle East: Cards Dec.
5.
--Caribbean and West In-
dies: Cards Dec. 15. Par-
cels Dec. 12.
For information on specific
countries call 229-8657.
Last December, 9.1 billion
pieces of mail passed through
United States post offices,
says the Pitney Bowes Com-
pany, which makes postal
meters. With a peak load like
that, they say, Christmas
delivery becomes increasing-
ly risky after Dec. 15.
While handmade or unusual
cards may be fun to send,
remember that irregularly
shaped letters may take long-
er to process the regulation-
sized mail, and are subject to
a 7-cent surcharge over regu-
lar 15-cent first-class postage.
Mail in this category includes
envelopes more than 6% inch-
es high and 11 inches long,
or %4 inch thick.
Envelopes less than 3%
inches high or 5 inches long
are not accepted anymore.
WRAPPING:
When wrapping packages,
"secure" need not mean
"costly", if you use corru-
gated or heavy cardboard
boxes, found free at grocery or
liquor stores.
Use strong, reinforced tape -
electrician's tape, or brown
paper tape to seal all
corners, flaps and seams.
Lightweight masking tape or
clear cellulose tape is not
strong enough.
Don't use string, since the
bulk mail center sorting
machine has metal arms that
may tear off string. Cushion
contents with balled up news-
paper, then jiggle the wrapped
package. If contents do not
rattle, you've padded it pro-


"Come and Worship God with Us"


perly.
Make sure the address is
clearly printed in waterproof
ink or crayon with ZIP code
and return address clearly
visible from a distance.
Mail early in the day.
Send irreplaceable items or
anything of value by register-
ed mail. The $3 cost for regis-
tered mail gives you $100
insurance on articles mailed
in the United States. You can
buy additional coverage up to
$25,000.
Use certified mail if you


need a receipt. Fifteen cents
in addition to postage gives
you a certificate to prove the
letter was mailed. For 45 cents
more you get a return receipt
to prove delivery.
If the package you send or
receive is delayed or damaged
don't suffer in silence. Com-
plete the Consumer Service
Card, available from post
office or letter carrier. A copy
of the card is sent to the post-
master and to the consumer
advocate postal service for
action.


Rep. Leonard Hall


Vice Chairman of


Education Group


State Representative Leo-
nard Hall, District 9, has been
appointed Vice Chairman of
the K-12 Education Committee
in the Florida House of Re-
presentatives.
The announcement of Hall's
appointment came during the
November biennial Organiza-
tion Session of the Florida
Legislature held in Tallahas-
see.
Recently re-elected to his
second term in the House, Hall
said in response to his appoint-
ment, "These next two years
will be crucial for education in
Florida as nearly all educa-
tion laws will be going through
sunset review in the legisla-
ture, both in 1981 and 1982."


He explained that the entire
Florida Statute chapter gov-
erning educational facilities,
except for two sections, will be
sunset reviewed in 1981. The
following year, according to
Hall, the chapter governing
educational personnel will be
sunset reviewed.
"The issues surrounding
education are going to be
critical," Hall said, "but, I am
proud I have been chosen to
have a leadership role in
dealing with these issues."
Hall's appointment was
made by newly elected Speak-
er of the House, Ralph H.
Haber, Jr., and will be in
effect for the next two years.

$90,727.00, which was ap-
pealed. The Clerk informed
the Board that he had written
a letter withdrawing the ap-
peal after receiving the
amended budget of $72,474.00;
that the appeal was for the
original budget of $90,727.00.
The Board said that this action
by the Clerk was premature
due to the fact that the Board
had not acted on the new
amended budget. The Clerk
was instructed to reinstate the
original appeal.
Mr. John S. Pohl requested
the Board to give him a
statement of "no obligation"
for a private water well and
pump is located adjacent to
the Ski Breeze Camp Site on
C-30. The Board agreed to give
him a "no objection" notice.
The Chairman announced
that the meeting was open as a
public hearing to consider a
supplemental budget for the
Road and Bridge Fund for the
fiscal year ending September
30,1980. Said supplemental
budget was read by the Clerk
and there being no objections,
there was a motion by Com-
missioner Tankersley, sec-
onded by Commissioner Ken-
nedy, and unanimoulsy car-
ried, that the following budget
be hereby approved and ad-
opted, retroactive to Sept-
ember 30, 1980.
The Chairman reminded the
Board that the next regular
meeting of November 11th is a
State and County Holiday. It
was decided to cancel the
regular meeting and hold a
special meeting on November
18; 1980, which is the date
newly elected Commissioners
will take office. The Board
then voted unanimously to
allow the Road Department
and Mosquito Control De-
partment to take November
loth as their holiday.
The Board, having re-
quested the State Department
of Transportation to install
speed limit signs in Ward
Ridge and to install a stop
light at the intersection of
SR71 and SR22 in Wewa-
hitchka, was informed by
letter from the Department of
Transportation that Ward
Ridge was not within their
jurisdiction and a traffic study
is being made at the Wewa-

Mr. Ed Leuchs reminded
theBoard that because Leo
Kennedy is retiring on Nov-
ember 18, 1980, his seat on the

best attendance record of any
other member on the Board,
that he has been the backbone
of the council's efforts in
keeping alive the proposed
nursing home project for Port

person has worked as hard on
this project as Commissioner
Kennedy.

kind words and then informed
the Board that he also holds an
appointment on the budget
committee of the Planning
Council, which position is not
controlled by the Board, that
he intends to keep this position

set up to operator. He discus-
sed the rate of pay for this new
operator.
Mr. Pitts then reported on
an inspection of the Indian
Pass Boat Landing. He told
the Board the Engineers in-
formed him the County would
be wasting time and money in
attempting to rebuild the boat
ramp because of the unusual
currents at this location; that
the currents will continue to
undermine the ramp without a
bulkhead on both sides of the
ramp and if a bulkhead was
installed, it would fill the boat
landing with sand, which
would be a continuing problem
to keep it open. The Board said
it will make a further study of
this matter.
Commissioner Kennedy told
the Board that he wants the
members to see a film pre-
sentation on "wooden
bridges"; that the Apalachee

any date convenient to the
Board. The Chairman said he
will seta date sometime in the
near future for this presenta-
tion.
