Who Pulled the Plug On the Lakes?



Commissioner Jimmy Gortman Had "Semi-Answer" to Question


Who pulled the plug on the Dead Lakes
Dam?
This question has titillated the interest of the
Panama City news media and Jasper Burton and
his mother, Mrs. Juanita Dill, for the past few
weeks and Tuesday morning, the question was
brought to the County Commission, to see if they
knew,
With TV lights shining as the mystery'
question was posed, only Commissioner Jimmy
Gortman would admit to knowing and he said he
wasn't telling beyond saying, "It was done by
several civic minded citizens of Wewahitchka".
The plug was pulled in the draw-down
system for the lakes some eight months ago,
according to Burton, and has steadily drained
the lakes ever since. The draw-down structure
was installed several years ago to.periodically
drain the lakes to combat the growth of water
weeds, by allowing them to be killed by the sun
during periods of low water. Commissioner


Gortman says the cold also adversely affects the
weeds, giving the lake managers a double shot at
killing the weeds during the cold weather which
has invaded the Panhandle since December and
the extremely low water conditions. Normally,
the lakes and the river are close to flood stage
this time of the year because of normal late fall
rains.
None of the other Commissioners knew
anything about the opening of the draw-down
structure gates or who was responsible for the
-operation of the structure. Who makes the
decision that it is time to kill weeds is still
unknown, since the former Dead Lakes Water
Management Committee has all become inactive
and apparently are no longer in existence.
Commissioner-Doug Birmingham noted that
it was his opinion this was an opportune time to
use the drainage system to kill weeds and
remarked, "You're the only fish camp operator
on the lakes who has reported damage or


disapproval with the draw-down". Birmingham
went on to say, "Some say we ought to blow out
the dam."
Gortman said the draining was working, "and
.it would be more effective except somebody went
in and closed the gates in December and we
missed the effect of the December 18 freeze on
the weeds. As it is, some good was done."
WHO'S RESPONSIBLE?
In the meeting Tuesday, Burton posed the
question, "Who is going to take care of raising
and lowering the gates' in the future?"
Birmingham stated that a resolution passed
by the Commission would ask the state to give
the Board control over the lakes and it would be
their responsibility if the resolution is approved
by the Legislature. "Right now, nobody is
responsible-for the operation of the lakes."
Attorney Billy Joe Rish vouched for.
Birmingham's statement, telling Burton, "The
County Board has no more authority over those


lakes than you or I as things stand right now".
Mrs. Dill entered the discussion then and
said she wanted to know who will be responsible
for raising and lowering the lakes in the future.
"Will we be given notice of draw-downs so we
can notify our regular customers who come from
as far away as up north that there will be no
water in the lakes at a given time."
Mrs. Dill said she had been told by George Y.
Core, former Clerk of the Commission and
secretary of the Water Management Commis-
sion that the crank to open the draw-down
structure had been given to Mr. Gortman.
Gortman said he didn't have the crank then
made his statement about knowing who had
opened the gates.
Mrs. Dill was also incensed that she couldn't
get hold of Gortman by telephone to make her
complaint known or seek any relief. Gortman
countered, "Nobody else seems to have any
trouble getting in touch'with me. I'm usually at ,
or near my home and.you know where I live if


you can't get me by telephone".
GATES TO CALL MEETING
Clerk Jerry Gates then entered the discus-
sion and noted, "I guess I'm secretary of the
Dead Lakes Board since I'm now the County.
Clerk. I'll call a meeting of the last members of
the Board for next week and talk to them about.
lowering the draw-down gates by 12 inches to
give you some relief. If they say they have n6o
jurisdiction over the matter, I'll lower the gate-
myself.
Burton retorted, "That would help us a lot'
and allow us to get boats in and out of our place.
If you need any help in lowering the gates, I'll
help."
Unless the Dead Lakes Water Management
Committee, whether they are are still in office or:
not, refuses to lower the gates next week, there_
will be a gate lowering in Wewahitchka
sometime in the near future, if Mr. Burton has:
his way.

Like writer James Kilpatrick, I believe we
S have milked this returned hostage story for all
it can be, milked. It's time now to shut up and
let the returned hostages get back to their
ordinary lives and let America get down to
other serious business.
Already they have captured the news for
,. .the past 23 days since their release on
inauguration day, usurped Ronald Reagan's
.. day in the sun on becoming the nation's 40th
S. president and virtually crowded everything
else off the news.
SMind you, we're not belittling the return of
Si the hostages. We think it was a great thing, we
think American should honor its commitment
with Iran for their release and we are happy
j for the hostages that they are now at home. We
just think it is time we leave them alone.
Leave them alone, after this one last
observation about the situation.
We think the capture, 444 days of captivity
*. and final return of the hostages is one of the
best things which has happened to this country
in a long time. Does that statement sound
stupid to you? We mean it.,

ingrown toenails, you name it. We had the
black bottom as a nation and there seemed to
be nothing we could do about it.
Then along came the hostages and
suddenly we could be concerned about their
safety during their 444 days of captivity. We
could vent our anger foolishly being spent to
divide us a nation, toward the Iranians.
Suddenly, we found something we could all
agree on as a nation-the Iranians were doing
us wrong.


Now that they have returned, we have all
united in our pupose of becoming a strong
nation once again ... a nation that one would
not dare commit an act like that against
again. Suddenly, the hawks and doves have
come to a single purpose of mind, make this
nation once again the top nation in the world
for the rest of the world to see.
We have staggered along since the
mid-60's divided in purpose, divided in
direction, divided in everything we could be


divided in. Now, we all unashamedly stand up
and join in singing "God Bless America" and
mean it. We hear "The Star Spangled Banner"
and nobody protests it; everyone stands to
reverent attention. We mention praying for
our nation in public once again.
We repeat: The taking of the hostages was
one of the best things which has happened to
our nation in a long time. It welded the nation
together as no president, no political party, no
organization ever could.


We're Back On the Same Old Subject


We hate to get back to it since we have
already editorialized on this subject several
times in the past few months. You might get
the idea we have nothing else to write about.
We have very little else to write about which is
as important as this subject at this time.
By now, you have received your TRIM Bill
notices. You know how much your property is
valued at for taxing purposes. You know how
much it will cost you this year to pay your
taxes at the rate taxes were levied for last
year and at the rate proposed for the coming
year. You know about all there is to know
about your tax situation if you read your


TRIM Bill notice carefully and understand it.
If you don't understand, you should make it
your purpose to get in touch with someone who
can explain it to you.
Now that the notices have been sent out
and you have digested its content, you need to
make it your purpose to. make plans to attend
the public hearings for budgets you will be
affected by under the tax laws. The hearings
are being held for you 'to make your objections
known if you have any. If you fail to do it at the
hearings, you are stuck with whatever
transpires in taxes here in Gulf County until
the next tax year.



The TRIM Bill is designed,to inform you
as to what is to happen. If you sit back and let
it happen, the TRIM Bill also keeps you from
having any resource after the fact.

Again, we believe the taxing authorities of
our county will be frugal in their duties this
year. They will also be concerned with
properly funding the things they fund, so you
will get some good out of the services. You
need to become involved to protect yourself
and to let your taxing authorities know your
wishes in public spending for Gulf County and
its other tax entries.

Carpet Used

Everywhere
Carpet is being used every-
where these days in
motorhomes, in boats, in
kitchens, on patios, around
pools, and in many other
places. Carpet is tough and
long-lasting... no longer just
a floor covering for the dining
area or the living room.,
There are many kinds and
grades of carpets from which
you may choose. Fitting the
right carpet to a particular
need is very important, and
this is, an area where our
courteous sales people can
recommend and assist you.
Our number one job is to see
that the customer is fully
satisfied. We can help by
advising on the proper carpet
for the area to be covered.
Come in today and look over
our large selection of colors
and styles.

Road Runners Plan Three Races


Port St. Joe's Ricky Larry,
the fourth leading scorer in
state 2-A basketball, probably
advanced in the rankings a
point or two Tuesday night, as
he hit for a season-high 37
points to lead the Sharks to a
77-53 rout of the Havana
Gladiators in Havana. The
Sharks just squeezed by the
Gladiators in the Gulf Coast
Conference in Wakulla two
weeks ago, defeating them by
one point at the buzzer.
The win gave the Sharks a
19-1 record on the season, for
-their finest record in recent
years.
Larry was number .four in
the Big Bend with an average
of #.1 going into the game.
The Sharks jumped off to a
22 point production in the first
quarter while Havana was
putting only 10 on the board:
The Sharks went on to out-
score the Gladiators in every
.period.
Larry led all scorers with
his 37 which came from 14
field goals and nine free
throws. Leaping John Pittman
added 13 and Daryl Garland 10
and Jerry Filmore 15,
Hannah led the Gladiators
with 18 points.

chosen recently to represent
Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School at an exciting program
in Washington, D.C. They will
attend A Presidential Class-
room for Young Anericans
from Feb. 21. to March 14.
They were selected for their
leadership qualities and ac-
ademic standing.
Presidential Classroom will
give these students a firsthand
look at how the Federal
government works. The rig-
orous, week-long schedule of
seminars will take them to
such centers of power as
CaDitol Hill. the Central In-


telligence Agency, and cabi-
net departments. There they
will talk with their representa-
tives in the Congress and
question many of the nation's
leading political figures. They
will also deepen their under-
standing of their fellow citi-
zens by meeting high-school
seniors and juniors. from all
over the country.
The students will see the
cultural side of Washington as
well. The Classroom's it-
inerarv inil,,des an evening at
the th .,er or concert hall and
visits to the Smithsonian Insti-
tute and the National Gallery
of Art.

Johnson's recommendation,


Presidential Classroom was
chartered in 1968 as a non-,
profit, nonpartisan educa-
tional program in the District
of Columbia. This year, more
than 400 high school students
will attend each session of the
Classroom.


One graduate of the 1980
program captured the Class-
room experience by writing,
"You read about politics and
Washington in the paper. You
watch it on television. You live
it at the Presidential Class-
room."

1982 FEDERAL BUDGET
On January 15,, Presi-
dent Carter submitted his
budget for Fiscal Year
1982. The final Carter
budget consists of an
estimated $739.3 billion in
outlays. and $711.8 billion
in.tax receipts, 'which will
leave our nation with a
$27.5 billion deficit for
the upcoming fiscal year.
Although, the line-by-line
estimates of projected ex-
penditures and. revenue
take a rather cumbersome
document to illustrate, I
will briefly describe these
estimates in general terms
and the prospects for a
revised FY82 budget
under the new Reagan
Administration.
The number one prior-
ity for the coming' fiscal
year will be increasing
defense spending. Accord-
ingly, the FY82 budget
provides our armed forces
with $184.4 billion in out-
lays. This is a $22 bil-
ion increase from last
ear's budget, which
provided $161.1 billion for
defense spending. Most
iUnportantly, this increase
will alloww defense spend-
ing to rise 5% faster than
inflation so that we may
begin the serious work of
revitalizing our security.
Spending levels for
domestic assistance pro-
grams and direct payment
benefits to individuals,
which in total. consume
564 of every federal dol-
lar, will face slight reduc-
tions in terms of real in-
come after inflationary
impact. Under the Carter
budget, there is a pro-
posed $16 billion retrench-
ment in food stamps, wel-
fare, federal pay, and
retirement and unemploy-
ment benefits.
Federal revenues under
the 1981 budget will jump
$194 billion from the pre-
vious fiscal year. Two of
the tax increases former
President Carter proposed
are a 10t-per-gallon fuel
tax increase and an auto-
iCatic income tax withhold-
g on interest and divi-
dends. Both taxes were
soundly opposed and de-
feated by Congress last
year and there will be


very little support this
year for similar taxes.
President Reagan and
his advisers 'have already
voiced their opposition to
the current budget and
have stated that they will
make major revisions be-
fore it comes 'to Congress.
I would suspect that Pres-
ident Reagan will .work
for further reductions in
expenditure levels for
domestic assistance and
income transfer programs.
Furthermore, a possible
tax cut might be retroac-
tive to January 1, 1981.
Whatever the prognosis
for the 1982 federal bud-
get, we in Congress and
President Reagan have
our work cut out for us,
and I hope we work well
together.

The Board of County Corn
missioners of Gulf County
Florida, met December 9. 198
in regular session with th
followmg members present
lames L. Tankersley, Chair
man, Douglas C. Birming
ham, William R. Branch
Jimmy 0. Gortman, and Eld
ridge Money. Others present
were: George Y. Core, Clerk
K.E. Murphy, Sheriff, Williar
J. Rish, Attorney, and Tommy
Pitts, Administrative Assi
stant.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. Reverend Orval
Reynolds, Howard Creek Bap
tist Church, opened the meet.
ing with prayer, followed by
the pledge to the flag.
The minutes of November
18th, December first, and
December third, 1980, were
read, approved, and adopted.
Reverend Orval Reynolds
presented a petition signed by
91 citizens requesting the
County Commissioners and
the Sheriff to include
$200,000.00 in the fiscal year
.1980-81 budget for a deputy
sheriff to be assigned to the
White "City, Howard Creek,
and Dalkeith area of the
.County. The Chairman said
the Sheriff and the Board are
considering this request in the
fiscal year 1980-81 budget
workshop meetings.
The Board considered a bill
inp the amount of $288.00 for
medical services for Mrs. Ada
Clair Gloekler, resulting from
a fall on the north steps of the
courthouse on September 9,
1980. The Board was advised
that the County has no in-
surance for this type coverage
and that the County cannot
pay for this type claim unless
the County can be shown to
have been negligent in the
course of the accident.
The Board directed that an
investigation be made in the
matter.
The Board discussed the
need to paint the inside of the
Wewa Health Center due to
soot damages caused by
recent accident. The Board
directed that Commissioner
Gortman handle this matter.
The Chairman called a
special meeting for December
12, 1980 at 7:00 p.m., for
additional work on the budget.
Mrs. James T. McNeill,
President of the Library
Board, questioned the Board
a.s to a bookdrop that should
have been provided for the
Library building. She stated
that one set of plans included
the bookdrop, but as-built
plans did not show the
-(acility; that this Board has
promised it would be installed.
This project having heretofore
:been turned over to the
Administrative Assistant, he
tolddhe Board that the book-
drop agrred on to be installed,
at a cost of about $300.00,
cannot be used, due to the
thickness of the wall, which is
14 inches' and that electrical
wiring is installed in this loca-
tion. He said he has discussed
this with the Library Man-
ager. After discussion the
Board instructed the Adminis-
trative Assistant to check with
the Architect to determine
what would be involved in
cutting through the wall.
.A letter from Bay Memorial
Hospital requested the County
to assist in paying a hospital
bill for Georgie Simmons, an
indigent patient. The Board
requested the Chairman to
Write to the hospital, stating
that no funds were available
for this type payment.
The Board discussed a copy
of letter from Congressman
Earl Hutto to Major General
E.I. Heiberg, III Director of
Civil Works, U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, with reference
to funds for and dredging of
the St. Joseph Bay Ship
Channel.
Commissioner Birmingham
questioned the progress being
made on the opening of Corley
Slough. He said he has been in
touch with the Panama City
offi& of the Corps cf Engin-
eers with reference to the spoil
area required for this project.
The Administrative Assistant
said that the land owner
cannot give the required ease-
ment, their reason being that
the property is under a heavy
mortgage. After discussion, it
was suggested the County
condemn the property, pay the
owner whatever the jury
awards them, and then see
that all of the owner's land is
placed on the tax roll for the
Value set by the jury. The
Chairman said condemnation
would be considered as a last
resort.
The Board tabled a proposal
to contract with 3M Energy
Control Center to install sun
control film on the courthouse
windows.
The St. Joe Natural Gas
Company billed the County
$34.00 for parts used in repair-
ing two gas lines that were cut
by the County Road Depart-
ment equipment. County em-
ployees said that the two lines
cut were not buried the


required thirty-six inches and
had the lines been buried that
depth the equipment could not


- have reached them. The
, Chairman tabled this matter
0 for investigation.
e The Board discussed a letter
: from the St. Joe Paper Com-.
- pany with reference to ditches
- along County Road 30.
.- The Board tabled duscusion
* as to a proposal by the Risk
t Management Services, Inc.
for insurance coverage for
i Gulf County.\
y The Florida Department of
- Transportation notified the
Commission that speed limit
on US 98 in the Beacon Hill
I area has been established at
45 mph.
The Board discussed
whether or not to continue its
membership with the State
* Association of County Com-
I missioner Branch, and it was
unanimously carried that the
Board discontinue paying its
dues to said Association.
The Farm Agent filed his
monthly report for November.
The Chairman discussed
financial information as to the
Municipal Hospital. He said
the Board requested this
information in. an effort to
determine if the County can
give financial aid to the
hospital. He then said. this
report will be studied.
The Board approved bonds
for the following officers:
W.R. Branch, Jerry Gates,
Eldridge 'Money, Joyce D.
Williams, and K.E. Murphy.
Commissioner Birmingham
requested the Attorney to
prepare the proper resolutions
to be presented to the retiring
county officials.
Commissioner Birmingham
informed the Board that in
clearing the ditches and right
of way along Road C-22A, east
of the Dead Lakes' Dam, a
number of small trees and
other debris were left along
the right of way. He said the
right of way should be cleared
of this debris before highwater
comes and moved it back in
the ditch. It was decided to
allow anyone who wishes to
remove any portion of the
debris for firewood before the
County removes it.
Commissioner Branch dis-
cussed the need for the County
to acquire title to the strip of
land lying between US 98 and
the waters edge in Highland
View, to be used as a spoil
area for dredging material
and that some day it could
become a beautiful public
beach. There was a motion by
Commissioner Branch, sec-
onded by Commissioner Birm-
ingham, and it was unani-
mously'carried, for the At-
torney to look into the pos-
sibility of acquiring this pro-
perty.
Commissioner Branch sug-
gested the regular meeting of
December 23rd by cancelled.
The Board unammously ap-
proved this suggestion. The
Chairman announced, that
said meeting is cancelled.
Commissioner Branch
asked if there were special
state funds set aside for
constructing new roads to new
industries. The Administra-
tive Assistant said there are
such funds.
Commissioner Branch
asked when the final inspec-
tion will be. held on the paving
project. He said he ,had
several areas he wanted the
engineer and the contractor to
take a good look at. Mr. Pitts
stated the final inspection
would be in about a week.
Commissioner Money re-
ported the street condition at
21st Street and Long Avenue
needs attention. Mr. Pitts
reported the water table in
that area has caused the
foundation to float; that the
contractor is working to cor-
rect this problem.
Commissioner Money re-
quested the debris along Canal
Street in St. Joe Beach be
cleared. He also requested the
brush and debris along the
railroad tracks in North Port
St. Joe be cleared.
Commissioner Gortman in-
formed the Board that certain
unknown people were remov-
ing material from the County
storage lot near the John Land
home: that these people are
going through and across the
Land Property without perm-
ission; that some of these
people have talked and acted
ugly to members of the Land
family. The Board discussed
selling of the junk material in
this location, which would stop
this type complaint. It was
decided to make a list of all
surplus items, including some
at the Road Shop, and offer it
for sale.
Commissioner Gortman dis-
cussed the speed limit through
Dalkeith and stated the people
in the community wanted it
reduced to 45 mph.
Commissioner Gortman dis-
cussed a permit to cut across
the Pleasant Rest Cemetery
Road. Mr. Pitts sad the permit
was missed, the cut made, and
the road hatched,

William R. Branch, Jimmy

at 7:00 p.m.
Commissioner Gortman
opened the meeting with
prayer and led the pledge of
allegiance to the flag.
Mrs. Eda Ruth Taylor, Tax
Collector-Elect, met with the
Board to discuss the budget of
the Tax Collector. The Chair-
man explained that after
figuring the budgets the Board
felt it was necessary to hold all
budgets to an 8 percent
increase, which necessitated
cutting Mrs. Taylor's budget
request. Mrs. Taylor ex-
plained that the State had put
a lot of extra work on the Tax
Collector which was the rea-
son for request. After discus-
sion, Commissioner Gortman
moved the Board allow the
Tax Collector an 8 percent
increase in the budget. Com-
missioner Branch seconded
the motion and it passed
unanimously.
Mrs. Cora Sue Rcbinson.
Supervisor of Elections-Elect,
appeared before the Board to
discuss the budget of' the
Supervisor of Elections. After
discussion, Commissibner
Gortman moved the Board
grant the Supervisor an 8
percent increase in the budget
and allow transfer of funds

budget in case Mrs. Robinson
needs it.

Keep plants as healthy as

very little pruning of cold

sary. however, if all your
efforts fail and you loose a

the hardy and tropical or

Don't be too hasty in prun-
ing cold damages plants such
as hibiscus, allamanda, poin-
settia, citrus, rubber plant,
philodendrons and others. The
extent of cold damage in many
instances, cannot be distinctly
determined until growth
starts in spring.
By pruning now, you may
cut off live wood. Also, the
leaves and stems that are
dead afford some protection to
that not yet damaged. If you
prune this out, later freezes
may do more damage than
would have done if the dead
parts were left on the plant. If
you do prune now, cover the
part remaining during freez-
ing weather to protect it.
Although the entire top of
some plants (rubber plant,
philodendron, poinsettia and
others) may have been killed
by freezing, these plants may
send up new shoots from the
roots next spring. Don't write
the plant off until warm
weather arrives, and they
have a chance to renew
themselves.

of paradise there is no true
stem, only leaf stalks. These
will turn brown soon after
freezing. You may remove
them or leave them for
protecting the root system
until spring. It is very doubtful
that bird of paradise plants
which were killed back to the
ground will flower next spring
or summer. Following a
freeze, it generally takes from
12 to 15 months for the plants
to flower again.
Freeze damage to citrus is
not easy to determine in its
entirety, since damage to the
trunk may not show up for
several months following the
cold weather. Trees should be
pruned as soon as possible
after the extent of damage has
been determined. You will
know, as a rule, what this
damage is after the second
flush of growth following the
freeze.
It often takes this long for
freeze damage to the trunk to
show up in the growth of the
plant. In citrus, it is possible to
have limited damage to the
foliage and severe damage to)
the trunk. Remember, too,
most citrus is grafted and if
the tree is killed back below
where the graft was made, the
new shoot will again have to
be grafted or else you'll get
only small, poor quality fruit
from the rootstock. So, if your
citrus is killed almost to the
ground it will most probably
not grow back to produce the
kind of fruit it formerly
produced.
Damage to azaleas may be
to flower buds and stems.
Flower bud damage will show
up at blooming time (few or
no flowers) and stem damage
by death of branches in late
spring or early summer. Dead
azalea branches should be
pruned out as they occur.

bably confined to flower buds
and leaf burn. Cold damage
flower buds will either drop
from the plant or only par-
