Se of


A new slate ofeofficers and three new directors took over
their duties of service to the Port St. Joe-Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce Monday night, at the annual dinner of
the Chamber in the Commons Area of Port St. Joe High,
School. The installation ceremony was held before the--
largest crowd ever to attend a Chamber dinner here in Port
St. Joe.
The Chamber members enjoyed a steak dinner,
prepared and served by the Port St. Joe Lions Club, an
annual project .of the club.
SBill Crawford, owner and manager of the Gulf Sands
Motel at St. Joe Beach took over the reins of the organization
and will serve as president for the coming year. In his first
statement as the Chamber president, Crawford offered an
invitation to all members to attend the monthly meetings of
the directors each fourth Monday at 5:30 p.m., in the library.
Ferrell Alleni was installed as Vice-President, but was:
out of town Monday night and could not be present for the:
ceremony. Dave May and Robert Nedley: were sworn in as
treasurer and secretary.


Joe and Wewahitchka; Mel Magidson, a Port St. Joe attorney
and Nolan Treglown, manager of the Port St. Joe branch of
the Wewahitchka State Bank, were sworn in as directors. The
three new directors will replace Rex Buzzett, Tom S.
Coldewey and George Duren, who have served out their three
year terms.
Retiring president, Fred Witten, gave the Chamber
members a pep talk saying, "Everyone needs to be involved
in the Chamber of Commerce, private citizens as well as
business people. Gulf County is growing. We have several
new businesses which have opened up in the past year, as
well as the designation by Florida Power as being the site of
their next electric generating plant and positive progress
toward the .creation of a deep water port here in Port St.
Joe."
Witten said the scope of the Chamber work is also
growing. "We had some 3,700 contacts .through your
Chamber office this past year, which benefitted the entire
county."

Service, kept the audience in stitches during the evening with
a humorous address before he put some meat into his
address,! using the acronym FORCE to encourage the
Chamber members to be active participants in their.
community.
Lamb gained the attention of the audience by remarking,
"This is the first time I have ever known a Lamb to be served
by a Lion."
Lamb said a useful citizen would have Faith in God, his
country 'and himself; Objectives" which would test his
abilities;' Resourcefulness and not dependency; Consistence
in our actions to give our youth a good example to follow and
Enthusiasm toward our community and its goals.
"All of these are the spokes of the wheel", Lamb said,
"The hub is the Bible verse which says it is more blessed to
give than to receive. When we give without thinking of what
we receive in return, we are good citizens and good Chamber
members."

Oil Spill Nearly Gets


Into Waters
Port St. Joe suffered a slight oil spill
last week, when a tanker hose line
ruptured spilling an estimated 10 barrels
of crude oil at the Hess oil docks,
according to the Florida Marine Patrol.
FMP officer David Johnson said the
accident occurred at approximately 8:30
p.m., Tuesday of last week as the Liberian
tanker Sprague Capella was transferring
oil at the docks.
Johnson said high winds kicked the
bow. of the ship around, snapping the bow
line. The force of the ship being blown


of the Bay
around ruptured the oil line pumping the
crude from the vessel, spilling the oil on
the docks.
Officer Johnson praised the quick
action of the ship's crew and the Hess
workers in limiting the spill and keeping it
out of the water. No oil found its way to the
bay waters or local beaches, as the spill
was totally contained to the Hess docks.
Environmental Coastal Clean-up Ser-
vice of Panama City was called in to take
charge of the clean-up operation, which
should be completed by today.


Officers from CitiBank Corporation of New York City were in Port St. Joe
last Wednesday to discuss purchasing some $35 million in bonds to finance the
planning .and construction, of the proposed new deep water port here. The
bankers met with members of the Port Authority and industrial leaders here in
the county at the Country Club for dinner and discussion of the project which
has been in the planning and preparation stages for the past year and a half.
CitiBank is considering the purchase of the bonds on a short term basis. The
Port Authority will deposit the proceeds from the non-taxable bonds 'in the bank
on interest at today's going interest rate. The Authority will then use the
interest spread between what they earn and what they owe CityBank on the
bonds for a feasibility study, securing permits and engineering for the new port.
At the end of the planning stage, when construction is ready to start, a
long-term bond issue will be sold, with the proceeds to re-pay CitiBank for the
$35 million issue. The bond issue will be self-supporting, requiring no local taxes
for re-payment. The permanent bond issue will be issued against port revenues


and will not be backed by local taxes.
The banking officials came to Port St. Joe to get a first-hand look at the
proposed port site and talk first-hand with all the entities involved in the
project.
A final decision from CitiBank is expected within a few weeks on the bond
sale and if they agree to make the purchase, planning for the port will proceed
immediately.

I Sheriff Murq
For many years, sheriffs and other law
enforcement officials have complained that
the American criminal justice system has
been preoccupied with a concern for the
rights of criminals, while turning its back on
the safety of law-abiding citizens.
Now, the sheriffs have heard their
complaints repeated by no less than Warren
E. Burger, Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme
SCourt. Sheriff Ken Murphy says he couldn't
be more pleased.
"PIlfbackhim all the way," Sheriff Murphy
said, "When he says we need a crackdown on
the pre-trial release of dangerous accused
criminals; when he favors limiting the
number of criminal appeals and when he sees


phy Backs Statement Made I


a need for more, well-trained law enforce-
ment officers."
In a speech to the American Bar Associa-
tion on February 8, Burger warned that the
nation's criminal justice system, "at every
stage cries out for change." He said that as
part of the system, the courts must share the
blame.
"The comments by the Chief Justice
reinforce my belief that our judicial system is
being strangled by unnecessary delays,
endless appeals and unrealistic safeguards
for accused persons," Sheriff Murphy said.
"The crime problem, is, or course, most
serious in the large, urban areas of this
country," the sheriff said, "But we can't


afford to think crime is just a big city
problem. Drug usage is widespread in every
community; juveniles commit crimes as
though the law does not apply to them, and
our citizens do not feel secure in their own
homes. The crime problem 'is here, but
something can be done it doesn't have to get
worse before it gets better."
. Burger suggested these stpes be taken to
combat crime: Release on bail only those
accused criminals who are deemed, by the
seriousness of the charged crime and their
past record, to be not dangerous. Provide for
most criminal trials within weeks of arrest.
Give Appellate Court priority for appeals
filed within eight weeks of a conviction


by Burger

judgement. After a criminal defendant's
appeal of conviction has failed, limit all
subsequent appeals to "Claims of miscar-
riage of justice". Use prisons to rehabili-
tate, mainly through education..
Provide "Generous use of probation" for
first-time non-violent offenders, with swift
revocation if probation terms are disobeyed.
"You can bet the seriffs of Florida,
individually and through the Florida Sheriffs
Association, are going to continue to speak
out on what we see as problems in the
criminal justice system, and we are going to
continue to look for the solutions," Sheriff
Murphy said. "It's good to know the Chief
Justice is going to be working with us.


Three Arrested On

Kidnap Charges


According to Gulf County
Sheriff Ken Murphy, five
counts of kidnapping and five
counts of aggravated assault
with a firearm have been filed
against Doug Yeomans, age
27, of Douglas Landing, Mark
Floyd, age 28 and Robert
Anthony Harrison, age 23,
both of Howards Creek.
The three men were charg-
ed after they allegedly held
five persons prisoner in their
home on Willis Landing Road


and made several threats
against their lives in the early
morning hours of February 17.
After the three men left the
home of the victims, one of the
victims contacted the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department.
The three men were arrested
in Howards Creek and are
presently lodged in the Gulf
County Jail.
They were arraigned before
Judge David Taunton and
bond was set at $50,000 each.

Our High Courts Seem to be Doing An About Face


* 4.

It'0


different from a fine and a suspended sentence
for a first offender. A mandatory sentence
requires that those convicted spend some time
in jail. In this particular instance, the
requirement is from three to 15 years,
depending on the type and amount of drugs
involved. 0
On top of the prison sentence, the
smugglers and dealers face fines of up to
$200,000.
We feel the mandatory sentences will


curb the traffic some, although there will still
be a plentiful supply of those who will try the
law in order to make a fast buck. The fast big
bucks are what make a simple fine even up
to $200,000 merely a niusance to the
smuggler. He is dealing in big money and the
fines don't seem to bother them to a great
extent.
The mandatory jail sentence seems to
have been effective in slowing down armed
robbery, the only other crime less than a


capital nature we know of which carries a
mandatory jail sentence requirement for
conviction.
Even this law didn't stop armed robbery.
There is still more than enough to go around.
According to statistics, however, the crime,
has been reduced and law makers give the
credit to the mandatory jail sentence.
We applaud the ruling, of the Supreme
Court as a step in the right direction.


We're Glad We Can Live In Port St. Joe


The high courts of the state and nation
seem to be doing an about face in their
attitudes toward what is protection of the
:criminal's rights and what is best for society
as, a whole.
For the past several years, the courts
seemed to be obsessed with protecting the
rights of the criminal at the expense of the
peace of mind of the rest of us. As a result, the
criminal seemed to be given the impression
that he could do as he wanted without fear of
:retribution from the law. In many cases, even
convicted criminals never went to jail.
Here in Florida, the situations in the
courts seemed to encourage the importation of
Illegal drugs and smuggling has become one of
the largest single industries in the state,
simply because those who were caught merely
paid large fines and were free to go their
merry way once more. The fines apparently
didn't bother the smugglers, since their
number seems to be even more legion than
"ever.
Just this past week, the Florida Supreme
Court ruled that the state would be on firm
ground to apply mandatory prison sentences
against those caught smuggling or dealing in
illegal drugs. A mandatory sentence is


obnoxious and not to be condoned in any
manner, but we can still be thankful we're not
faced with the spectre of having young boys
disappear, later to be found dead. Atlanta has
faced this problem 17 times in recent months.

How long has it been since a person was
murdered in Port St. Joe? How long has it
been since someone was robbed at the point of
a gun, a knife or even the threat of a bare
knuckle in the kisser? Can you remember? We
can't, and our business is reporting such
actions and becoming aware of their happen-
ing.


In Miami, here in our own state of Florida,
this is an everyday happening. It's a jungle
down there. And this situation doesn't exist
only in Miami; it is a way of life in other cities
as well.
In Port St. Joe, the kids play out in the
yard, on the sidewalk, on the street, in the
parks, until their parents call them home.
They can do so without fear of abduction.
People walk down the street, in daylight or
dark, without fear of mugging or robbery.
We're thankful for that and appreciate the
peace of mind it gives. Still we would like to
see improvements.

ll Else Fails, We Can Always Talk About the Weather


.THOSE WHO DIDN'T get their
buns frozen off last Wednesday night
through Friday morning, have some
mighty tough buns.
:--With temperatures plunging into
&t:low 20's and a chill factor of zero
.from the high winds, it seemed like
4hnthing but Florida here all day
Thurday. One lady from up north
came into the office saying she had
cone down here to get away from the
ifld winter up north in her home place,
It: she was still satisfied with her
lition since she said it was something
e 30 below "back home" on that
articular day.
' .While I knew it has been cold for an
:.w ually long period of time this
: ter, I didn't realize that the
temperatures were below freezing 20
%tes for a 30-day period, starting with
tfbe week of Christmas back last
3fember. That's a lot of cold for us.
The cold had people from all over
i Panhandle complaining about their
atiBty bills. Port St. Joe residents were
*-ght in the thick of the objections. They
wouldn't believe what they saw when
WIebills came. Most didn't realize just


how many cold days we had in the
billing period and just how cold it got.
It was almost as bad as air
conditioning.




ETAO++







YOU CAN BLAME all of this cold
weather on the groundhog which came
out on a day when he could see his
shadow. Why did he have to select that
day, when he had so many to choose
from in which he couldn't see his
shadow?
My brother, Will, up in Chattahoo-
chee, blames the cold weather and the
groundhog seeing his shadow on


television.
Brother Will says the groundhog
DID come out on a dreary day in which
a shadow could not be cast. The -
problem was that the television cam-


eras were there to record the big event
and when they turned on their bright
lights, the hog saw his shadow and
scurried back in his hole for another six
weeks.
Wouldn't you know something like
that would come from someone in
Chattahoochee?

ALONG WITH THIS inclement


weather we've been having, everyone
in town seems to have had the flu or the
virus or a bad cold. There is a lot of
sickness going around. The doctors and
drug stores are getting rich and the jobs


are going undone because so many
people are home doctoring the bug.
We've been lucky here at The Star.
The only one to catch the bug has been
our typesetter operator, Sharie Mims.
Even Sharie, who has been here only a
short while, has become acclimated
enough with working on a deadline that
she came down with the bug after the
paper was out. By Monday morning,


she was ready to go again.


If she gives it to me, though, she's
fired.
THE TV COMMERCIALS have
been making hay with the cold and flu
season. It looks like every cold remedy
which man has ever dreamed up has
been advertised on TV for the past two
or three months. Some of the commer-
cials don't make good sense.
Take the one where the man shakes
his wife in the middle of the night and
says: "Mildred, Mildred, are you up? I
don't think I can sleep."
If I were to do that to Frenchie, she
would put me back to sleep and she
wouldn't get up and get the aspirin and
Sucrets to do it. There's a five-cell
flashlight standing on the floor right by
the bed, and I'm suspecting that is the
medicine she would use to put me back
to sleep.
On the other hand, she might think
something was really wrong with me if
I woke up in the middle of the night and
couldn't sleep. It usually takes a knock
on the bean with that flashlight in the


morning to get me awake. I have no
trouble sleeping.
Then there's the fellow who gets
better and says, "charge", ready to get
tb work )ust by mentioning the name of
'a cold medicine which will remain
unmentionable here since they didn't 7
pay me near the thousands of dollars
they paid TV to mention their product.
I think most of that medicine is
designed not to cure the cold, but to put
the cold victim in such a state he
doesn't mind having it.

I REMEMBER WHAT old Dr.
Ward told me one time, when I asked
him what to take for a cold.
He said, "Come by the office and I
can give you some medicine and it will
have' you well in two weeks. On the
other hand, you can go home, take an
aspirin, drink plenty of juices and get
some rest and that cold will hang on for
a long 14 days."
I'm just going to squeeze my
rabbit's foot, rub my copper penny,
stay out from under ladders and hope I
continue to avoid the cold. Neither
remedy seems very appealing to me.

Being A

Parent Is

Special
Being a parent is a special
commitment. Often, parent-
ing "responsibility" over-
shadows the essence of the
caring relationships between
parent and child.
Most parents are respons-
ible and insure that children's
physical and educational
needs are met, We can all do
for and be responsible for our
children. We can "show" our
caring commitment and teach
"winning" behavior in four
basie ways. "Grounding" is
the way we teach our sons and
daughters to feel confident
'out-of-doors or in new situa-
tions. "Nurturing" is the way
'we show children how to care
. for and respect all life. "Con-
tacting" is the skill we teach
young people so that they can
take initiative or reach for self
responsibility. "Relationship"
results when our children take
their own ground and nurture
others they contact in their
community.
"Raising Your Children To
Be Winners" wil be the topic
of a program offered by the
Gulf County Guidance Clinic,
Inc. on Monday, February 23,
at 7:00 p.m. (Eastern). The
location for the program will
be the New Bethel AME
Methodist Church at 146 Ave-
ue C in Port St. Joe. Further
information on the program or
the topic can be obtained by
contacting the Clinic at

Bill Fleming, National Di-
rector of Marketing with the
Volunteer Hospitals of Ameri-
ca, was the guest speaker for
the Rotary Club meeting last
Thursday.
Fleming told the Rotarians
that the number of hospital
beds in America were increas-
ing, but the number of hospi-
tals is decreasing. He also
noted that the number of days
in the average hospital stay is
also increasing because the
average American is now
living longer and when he gets
ill, his advanced age takes
him longer to recover from an
illness.
Fleming also noted that the
number of investor.owned
hospitals for profit was also
increasing, after being intro-
duced in the early 70's. There
are now 851 investor owned
hospitals for profit in the
United States. He pointed out
that the medical programs of
the federal government en-
couraged the rise of investor
hospitals because of the re-
cord-keeping requirements
for volunteer not for profit
hospitals. "Government re-

Alton is involved in many
civic projects that require
extensive time and effort. One
is the annual Christmas fruit
distribution to children and
the elderly. Alton works with
other dedicated citizens to see
that the project is successful.
Much time is devoted to
visiting the sick and shut-in at
home and various hospitals.
Another project which was
trying but worthwhile was
Alton's efforts while President
of Gulf County ARC. He
worked long and hard to help
make the dream of a Center
for Retarded Adults a reality.
As a result, a permanent
facility is located in the
county. The center serves
approximately twenty (20)
clients daily on a year round
basis and employs seven
workers.

'Lunch Charges Changed


Free and Reduced Price Eligibility Different


The Gulf County School
District announced today that,
due to the passage of Public
Law 96499, the family size and
income eligibility criteria for
free and reduced price meals
and or free milk for children
served under the National
School Lunch and or Special
Milk Programs have changed
for the remainder of the
school year.
The following income scale
will be used for determining
eligibility:


Children from families
whose income is at or below
the levels shown are eligible
for free or reduced price
meals and or free milk.
However, the four special
hardship conditions (usually
high medical expenses, shel-
ter cost in excess of 30 percent
of income, special education
expenses, due to the mental or
physical condition of a child,
and disaster or casualty
losses) have been eliminated.
A standard deduction for each


household has been incorpor-
ated into the income scale
instead.
The applications which are
currently on file are being
reevaluated to determine
whether, children are eligible
for free benefits, for reduced
price meals, or for paid meals
under the new criteria. Fam-
ilies of children whose benefits
are reduced or terminated will
receive written notice of the
change at least ten (10) days
before effective date of the

Plans Shown for



UWF P. C. Branch


The master plan for the
Panama City Branch of The
University of West Florida
was presented to the public
Tuesday (Feb. 10) at Gulf
Coast Community College,
Panama City.
Plan for the 25 acre site,
which lies northh of Gulf Coast
Community College and east
of the Hathaway Bridge, were
irawn by local architect
"ayne Collins who walked
those present through a slide
presentation of the plans.
Dr'. James A. Robinson of
UWF, in his opening remarks,
recognized several from
among the community who
were to be commended for
their help and encouragement
of the project to this point,
including Senator Dempsey
Barron; Frank Baison,
Chamber of Commerce; Capt.
Warfield Bennet; Jerry


Clemons, Council of Advisors,
and M.B. Miller, retiring
mayor of Panama City.
Robinson said the county
commissioners were in the
final process of completing
purchase of the land to be
transmitted o the State and
the legislative appropriation
of 6.4 million for the first
phase of the project and
approval by the Govenor were
the next steps to 'be taken.
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege president Dr. Lawrence
Tyree said, "I think The Un-
iversity of West Florida with
its branch campus will be a
welcome addition to the
community for all the citizens,
not just the young people or
not just the students, because
all the citizens will be able to
take advantage of the ad-
ditional opportunities of rec-
reational, athletic, cultural or


change.
Families who wish to submit
Sa new application may obtain
an application form from each
school's office. The informa-
tion provided on the applica-
tion is confidential and will be
used only 'for the pupose of
determining eligibility. A sim-
ple statement of income and
family size is required, plus a
signed certification by an
adult household member that
the information provided is
correct.,
In certain cases foster child-
ren are also eligible for these
benefits. If a family has foster
children living with them and
.wishes to apply for such meals
and milk for them, it should
contact the school.
The Principal of each school
will review applications and
determine eligibility. If a
parent is dissatisfied with the
decision of the determining
official, he or she may wish to
discuss it with the official on'
an informal basis. If he wishes
to make a I formal appeal, he
may; make a request with
orally or in writing to Charles


T. Watson, Gulf County School
Board, P.O. Box 969, Port St.
Joe, Fl. 32456 or telephone,
229-8256 for a hearing to
appeal the decision. Gulf
County's free and reduced
price meal and or free milk
policy contains an outline of
the hearing procedure.
If a family member be-
comes unemployed or its
family size or income
changes; the family should
contact the school to file a new
application. Such changes
may make the children of the
family eligible for reduced
price meals, or for additional
benefits such as free meals
and milk if the family income
falls at or below the levels
shown.
All children are treated the
same regardless of ability to
pay, In the operation of child
feeding programs, no child
will be discriminated against
because of race, color, or
national origin.

Last Friday, at Port St. Joe
Jr.-Sr. High School, was
Student-Teacher Day. The Na-
tional Jr. Honor Society or-
ganizes this special activity
every year, which gives high
school seniors a chance to take
the place of their teacher for
one day.
The National Jr. Honor Soc-
iety members served as assis-
tants to each student-teacher.
Seniors also took over in the
front office, by acting as the
Principal and office secretar-
ies. A lot of the student-
teachers said they enjoyed
their temporary roles, but that
one day is certainly enough!

OIL. DECONTROL
On January 28th, President
S. Reagan abolished price, con-
trols on domestic crude oil by
#an Executive Order. Although
price controls on domestic
S rude were. to expire in
September of this year,. the
President chose to expedite full
decontrol by. nine months. If
y.. ou have purchased gas -in the
: st week, you have probably
already noticed the effect of
i the President's action. The
price of gasoline rose approx-
imately 3C to 5S per gallon
across the nation. Oil decon-
tiol is a painful process, but it
1*brings home the hard realities
of the nation's energy crisis,
1and that may be beneficial in
the long run. We must con-
tinue to develop and evaluate
alternative sources 'of energy
which h will alleviate the energy
S runch, and not. hide behind
i.stortidns such as oil price
c, ntrols which make the price
f, energy cheaper than it ac-
; u ully is. Let's take a look at
some of those alternate sources
:& :f.energy.
Coal is by far the most
Sibundant source of energy
Which has, the potential for
meeting world energy demand.
It is estimated that the United
States alone has over 750
billion tons of known coal
reserves. The use of coal has
i-eadily been on the increase
S since 1970 as a substitute for
oil, especially by public utilities
S as a source for power genera-
tion. However, there are many
environmental concerns arising
from the use of coal which still
,. ust be answered, such as the
-'acid rain" controversy and





tl---


the "greenhouse effect"
before coal is extensively util-
ized.
Nuclear power, which has
had some major setbacks in the
last three years due to the acci-
dent at Three Mile Island,
seems finally to be on the road
to recovery. Nuclear power still
holds much promise for clean,
cheap energy to both residen-
tial and commercial con-
sumers.
Synthetic fuels such as
shale oil, liquid coal and ethyl
alcohol will do much in the
future to alleviate our energy
gap. Mass production of syn-
thetic fuels at a price attractive
to consumers is, however,
many years away.
Solar, geo-thermal, and
good old-fashioned conserva-
Stion are also weapons that can
be effectively used to make our
country self-sufficient in
meeting its energy needs. It is
imperative that Congress,
President Reagan, and the
energy industry' collectively
resolve this task, which will
take us well into the twenty-
Sfirst century.
One footnote I would
recommend that you check you.
public library or newsstand for
the February issue of National
Geographic, which has devoted
its entire issue to the topic of
energy. It's very informative
and gives a clear picture on the
problem and-solutions.

22 thanked the Corps of
Engineers for the best naviga-
tion channel ever provided in
the Apalachicola-Chatta-
hooche-Flint Waterway
during severe drought condi-
tions.
Area engineer Alton Colvin
reported that the Blounstown,
river guage dipped below "3"
during the current dry spell
that began in August. In the
past, the Corps did not prom-
ise a 9 foot channel when
readings got below "6". Any-
thing below "4" would stop all
commercial traffic.
Rains usually begin around
mid-November, but that has
not happened this year.
Channel depth in the. water-
way is now seven feet. Barges,
normally loaded to 8% feet,
are now being loaded only
about half full, to six foot
depth. One towboat operator
at the afternoon users' meet-
ing reported $50,000 damages
to his barges. Another re-
ported $30,000 in damages.
"That costs everybody
money," one shipper com-
mented.
The Corps maintains the
waterway by dredging sand-
bars, removing snags, releas-
ing water from upstream
dams when it is available and.
by directing water into the
center of the channel by
means of finger dikes.

which form a bottleneck in the

An estimated 140 members
and guests, mostly from Geo-
rgia, Florida and Alabama,
attended the dinner meeting.
E.E. Bishop, Sr., president,
of Dothan, Ala., praised ef-
forts of the governors' task
force to resolve conflicts over
the waterway. Jake Varn,
secretary of the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Regulation, said the next step
would be a basinivide study,
for which the task force is
seeking federal funding in the
budget now before Congress.
He emphasized that the study
would not be "a long, drawn
out study that will gather
dust," but a three-year pro-
blem-solving effort.
