Ricky Larry All-State

Four boys and one girl from the Shark
basketball squads this season, were selected M
for recognition by the Florida Sportswriters
Association this past week end.
Ricky-Larry, the Shark's sharp-shooting
guard was the only Shark to make the first
string of the mythical state team. The only
other player from Northwest Florida on the
team was William Brown of Chipley. Brown
anchored the Chipley team, just as Larry did
for Port St. Joe. It was a battle between Larry
and Brown to see which team finally went to
the State Tournament last month.
It took the entire Shark team to send Port
St. Joe to the state tournament, where they
won the state'championship. The sportswrit-
ers recognized this feat by providing honors
for three other Sharks in their selections.
John Pittman, Port St. Joe's defensive spark
was selected for the second team. Jerry
Filmore and Daryl Garland received honor-
able mention.
Candye Woullard of Port St. Joe was
given honorable mention for the state-wide
selections, and was the only lady Shark
selected for honors by the writers.
Several other well known area players
were up for honors in the all-state selections.
Florida High's Kenny Parker was picked
for the second team. Blountstown's Greg
Snowden and Wakulla's Ronnie Harris were
selected to the third team. Blountstown's
Vincent Bess received honorable mention.
Larry, a six-foot guard, averaged 23.3
points for the Sharks, who finished their
season with a 31-1 record. The single loss
e by only one point to Wakulla in the Gulf
ost Conference tournament.
Pittman, a 6-foot forward, averaged 17.4
points for the Sharks but was most effective in
rebounding.
Filmore averaged 13.6 points for the
Sharks and Garland was a defensive leader. RICKY LARRY

mission for a variance to
construct a low picket fence in
front of his property on the
property line.
Ford said he was under the
impression he must build the
fence 25 feet behind the
property line, but said doing
this would put the.fence in the
middle of his yard. He was
asking for a variance to place
the fence on the property line.
Ford came before the Com-
mission armed with letters
from his neighbors stating
they had no objections for the
construction of the fence.
Ford was told by the Com-
mission that, so far as the
Commission knew, there was
no set-back line for fences ...
only buildings. Ford was told
t. at attorney William J. Rish
wolild search the set-back
ordinance and if there was no
set-back requirement, Ford
would be given a permit for
his fence. If there was a 25-foot
set-back requirement, the
Commission would advertise
for a public hearing to grant
Ford a variance.

Two Arrested

for Burglary
Port St. Joe Police arrested
two young men last Monday,
filing charges of two counts of
burglary against them for the
burglary of Lilius Jewelry
and Kennedy Electric last
week.
Arrested were Michael
Dunn, 24 and Archie Daniels,
26. They were released yes-
terday on their own recogni-
zance.
Police chief Roy Robinsdon
said it is possible other
charges against the two will
be pending.


just east of the City's water
treatment plant.
The two former St. Joe
Paper Company wells caved
in last week, cutting off nearly
two-thirds of the City's raw
water capacity. Fortunately,
the new system had been so
constructed so as to make it
possible to cut into the St. Joe
Paper Canal supply in an
emergency. The caving in of
two water wells was definitely
an emergency.
Both the wells caved in at
about the 300 to 400 foot depth
and at this time nobody knows
why.
As a matter of fact, engin-
eers are still not certain the
wells have caved in, but the
signs are there.
In the course of the wells
going sour, one of the new
pumps purchased and placed
on the wells was ruined by the
debris the collapse sent to the
surface while the pump was
running.
It's still anybody's guess as
to what will have to be done to
get the wells operating, drill
new wells or make extensive
repairs to the old ones and get
them producing again.
Nobody knows why the wells
failed, since they were both
tested by reputable firms
before the City put them on the
production lipe. The wells
tested out good.
During the next two weeks,
the City will have the design
engineers, Smith and Gillespie
of Jacksonville, on the site to
try and determine what went
Swryoqjnd -What it will.take to

shape once again.
Putting the wells back into
shape once again could entail
anything from having to drill
new wells, an expensive prop-
osition; to placing new casings
points and possibly pumps in
the existing wells. Only a
thorough investigation of the
matter will determine just
what has to be done.

WOULD ERECT PLAQUE
James Yates, representing
the Veterans of Foreign Wars,
asked the Commission for
permission to place a plaque
honoring Gulf County's fight-
ing men in the park at the west
end of Fifth Street.
Yates was told that the City
did not own the park in
question and if the plaque was
placed there, it might have to*
be moved in the future. Yates
was told that Clerk Farris
would furnish him with a list
of park property owned by the
City, and the VFW could select
a site, or still go for the
original request, with the
understanding that the mon-
ument may have to be moved
in the future.
Yates said he would take the
information back to the other
members of the VFW.

,Firearm Control Advocates Are Out In Full Force


Again, some kook has taken a shot at our
President and again, the bleeding hearts are
S starting their push for gun control, supposing,
in their innocence, that with control over the
-: purchase of hand guns, that John Hinckley
i: 'would not have taken a shot at President
: .: Ronald Reagan. Bull feathers!
If there are people who would persuade
; our law makers to make it illegal to sell an
S :unregistered gun, then they must come with
/" reasoning better than that. A person who
-:::,;wishes to use a gun for an illegal purpose will
-: ::--get his hands on one, whether or not their
; ownership is legal.
S:: Already it is illegal for a person to carry a
concealed weapon without an official permit,
Sbut Mr. Hinckley had no problem with that
': law. A law against owning a hand gun without
,.oan official permit would likewise, cause his
;-., kind no trouble.
The only trouble would be caused to the
-"law-abiding citizen who wishes to purchase a
gun to protect himself and his family, or to use
-- -as a tool of recreation for target practice, etc.


Television unwittingly tore up their
long-standing case of trying to encourage gun
controls when they showed comparative
homicide figures for other countries in the
world, caused by guns.


The two nations with the least incidence of
gun-related homicides were nations in which
ownership of weapons is not only allowed, it is
encouraged and required.
Switzerland had the best record of
homicides from gunfire, yet in Switzerland,
every man is required to own a hand gun and
an automatic weapon to back up his
requirement for military service. All males in


Switzerland are required to be in the reserves
and own weapons, yet their gun related
murder rate was less, far less, than in other
nations prohibiting individual gun ownership
without stringent controls.
Israel was another case in which citizens
are encouraged and required to own firearms,
for protection, yet their gun related murder
rates are among the lowest in the world.


Most nations on the European continent
are hampered by stringent gun control laws.
They all have a comparatively light murder
rate from gunfire, compared with that of the
United States. Even this statistic is somewhat
mis-leading. We would like to see the murder
rate from all causes and compare ours with
theirs. A person is just as dead, even if he is
beaten to death with a toy hammer.


Leaders, People, Not Singing The Same Moral Tune


A story in the papers last week said U.S.
leaders are not in touch with the. general
public, especially in the matter of morals.
The article pointed out that 74 percent of
the American people still use the yardstick of
religious teachings as determining what is
right and what is wrong for people to do. Only
about 66 percent of our leaders used these
same principles.
Although there was no intent to focus on it,
religion still emerged as the one factor that
consistently and dramatically affects the
values and behavior of Americans.
We suppose this is why the American
people as a whole are shocked at the
-revelation of their Congressmen spending the


week end in a cottage with women here in
Florida. The Congressmen seem to take the
attitude that the only wrong done by them was
to get caught at their activities.
One of the researchers said he had no idea
the research would turn up this standard
accepted by the people. "But there it was," he
said, "showing up in every sort of systematic
analysis, a common thread. It's more than a
movement. It's something running through
the whole culture."
The 337-page report said religion had
penetrated almost every dimension of Ameri-
can life and is a stronger determinant of our
values than any other factor such as age, sex,
economic status, race or whether a person is


liberal or conservative.
It reminds us of what Mammy
used to say in "Lil Abner", "Good is
because it is better than evil."


SHUTTLE LAUNCH
The space shuttle will be launched on
April 10 for its trial flight in space. After
several delays, the device is scheduled to go
on the 10th. Technicians laid the delays to
leaking fuel systems, engineering design
failure, etc. We think the delay was planned
for the 10th because the government felt it
would have the money on hand on the 15th to
pay for the trip.

Waves. In fact, while -the
President was still in surgery,
gun control efforts were al-
rqady warming up through the
news media.
Traffic accidents take an
average of 140 lives a day on
our highways. An average of
70 of these deaths per day are
liquor related. So, on the day
the President was shot 70
other Americans died as a
result of liquor in the hands of
drivers.
Yet, there is no move to ban
legal liquor, or highways, or
automobiles. Why?
The liquor industry has a
strangled hold on America.
They have done a monumental
snow job on the American
public. Society has been con-
ditioned to meekly accept the
ruthless ravages of the liquor
industry in many areas of life.


Back to guns-People kill
people. A determined killer
WILL get a gun, or another
weapon.
Take guns away from law
abiding citizens and you will
open the flood gates for
criminals to invade every
home and business in the
nation. Removal of guns from
the hands of her citizens would
be a blanket invitation' to
criminals to take what they
want.
Knowledge of the fact that a
gun is in a home or an
automobile is a powerful
deterrent to the criminal.
Even with this deterrent pre-
vailing now, thieves, burglars
and robbers are taking a
heavy toll. Remove this deter-
rant and crime would sweep
the land.
The minority evil force that
would enslave a nation of
people must get guns out of the
hands of the citizenry. Com-
munists know that the un-
armed majority cannot suc-
cessfully resist an armed
minority.
It is a well known ploy of
Communists to play on the
emotions of people in a time of
national crisis as we have
Experienced this week. Their
punch lines sound like a
broken record. Their phil-
osophy is "Tell the people
what you want them to accept
(even a lie) often enough and


loud enough and .they will
finally accept it."
In a nutshell, their text is
"take- guns away from the
citizens and it will stop
assassinations." Nonsensel
The guess here is that
President Reagan himself will
continue to oppose disarming
the citizens.
These tragedies are simply
calculated risks that must be
taken to' void more and worse
tragedies to more people.
One idea might reduce these
senseless murders of our
leaders-stop plea bargaining
with criminals. Stop coddling
the guilty!
So, as you watch the world
go by, get set for a re-run of
the propaganda barrage, from
the anti-gun platoon.

Back in 1966, the government
ordered all flower shops closed, all
colorful clothing was banned, people
were even ordered to dump their gold
fish.
There was to be no outside showing
of beauty anywhere in the land.
Art work, enjoyable literature,
beautiful vases, furniture, or pictures
were to be done away with. All beauty
was to be stricken from everyday life.
Now, with a change in attitude in
China, the people are allowed to bring
some beauty into their lives once more.
Since it has been 15 year since
beauty was officially allowed in the
nation, the article said, "Younger
people don't know how to appreciate
beauty, and many do not understand
why they should."
That's a pitiful state to be in. China
was a nation which was noted world-
wide for its ancient works of art. Now,
they have a generation which doesn't
know what beauty is or how to react to
it when they see it.
I don't really know how the
government handled the spring time of

There are two foods you can always put on the table and be
sure the kids will eat them in a hurry: frankfurters and mashed
potatoes. So, why not combine them in an easy and delicious
main dish? The two never tasted better than in this Hot Dog
Casserole.
It's quick to make,,too. Start with fluffy mashed potatoes
you make in minutes, instead of hours, with Potato Buds~mash-
ed potatoes. Give the mashed potatoes a lively and unique
flavor by stirring in pickle relish, mayonnaise, onion and mus-
tard. Pour into a casserole and surround with frankfurters cut
into' quarters. A great idea for the whole family, or perfect
when a few young friends are sleeping over.

April 15 Is Deadline for


Filing Earnings for S. S.


Annual reports of 1980 earn-
ings must be filed by April 15
by people receiving-social
security benefits who earned
more than the annual exempt
.amount in 1980, David Robin-
son, Social Security Field
Representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
The 1980 annual exempt
amounts were $5,000 for
people 65 and over and $3,720
for people uider 65 as of last'
'year.
People who received some
;benefits in 1980 and who
earned more than the exempt
amount are required to file a


report of those earnings by
April 15.
Those who received no,
benefits in 1980 are not re-
quired to file a report, but,
Robinson said, those people
should file a report.to make
sure that 'any benefits that
might be due for the year are
paid.
A person who earned less
than anticipated, for ekamle,.
may be due some benefits.
Robinson said the only way
these benefits can be paid is if
the person files an annual
report.


The general rule is that $1 in
benefits is withheld for each $2
of earnings above the exempt
amount. A person can have
substantial yearly earnings.
before all benefits are withheld ;
For example, a 65-year-old
person whose monthly benefit
rate is $350 could earn $13,400
before all benefits for 1980
were withheld, Robinson said.
People who are required to
file. ah anfiial'r'epoft"should
have received a copy in the
mail. If they have not, they
should contact the nearest
social security office to obtain
a copy. Those not required to
file, but. wish to do so, can
also get a copy of the form at
any social security office.
The 1981 annual. exempt
amounts are'$5,500 for people
65 or older any part of 1981 and
$4,080 for people under 65 all of
1981.

nual reports and the annual

Liming of Soil Requires


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida Thursday, April 9, 1981.


Advance
by
Roy Lee Carter
County Extenslen Director
Getting the most out of your
lime dollar -requires a little
planning head and a little
knowledge ofhow lime works.
Follow these guidelines to get
the best result.
Soil Test: Determine the
need for lime by testing the
soil.You can t afford to guess
when the answer could mean a
crop success ora failure. Too
may times a grower has
assumed that because he
limed a field, garden or lawn
several years ago it is still in
good shape. The pH of an in-
tensively farmed soil can
change very' rapidly, parti-
cularly if much nitrogen has
been applied.
Lime takes Time: Lime-
stone is very insoluble. It
takes time for it to react with
the acids in the soil. For this
season, it should be applied at
least three months before
seeding the most sensitive
crop. Some of the most
native crops are peas,
A and soybeans.


Planning Guides ,

wil react much faster man
coarse limestone. If you can-
not wait three months from
time of lime spreading to
seeding a sensitive crop, use a
'limestone that has a fineness
analysis of at least 50 percent
passing through a 100 mesh
sieve.
. Apply amount needed: You
had the soil tested, so follow
the recommendations. This is
no place to skimp. If you need
more than 5,000 pounds per


t is best to worn nal ou me
amount deeply into the root
zone and work half into the
upper three inches. When
liming, you want to create a
favorable environment
throughout the root zone.
If you are liming a past-ire
or lawn and you need more
than 5,000 pounds per acre or
11.5 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.,split the
application. Apply hlf in the
spring and half in the fall.

Now that the Port Authority
is actually securing the names
of firms who would use a port
facility here in Port St. Joe to
satisfy bankers as to the
feasibility of interim financing
of .the project, Port Authority
chairman George Tapper says
his group needs some addi-
tional information in securing
the letters of intent.
Tapper said hbs committee
is already getting specific,
inquiries for locating plants
and-or using future port facili-
ties here and is beginning to
see a need for the County to
make a decision as to whether
or not they will offer special
tax exemptions for new indus-
,try located here, agdrimitted
by the Florida Legislature in
its last session.
The tax breaks must be
offered by a vote of the people.
The County Commission must
call for the special election to
make the decision as to
whether or not the county is to
be allowed to make the
concessions.
Tapper says it is now
imperative to have the elec-
tion to allow the people to
make the decision. He points
out in a letter to Commission
Chairman James L. Tankers-
ley that adjoining counties
have already approved the tax
concession advantage and it is
now up to Glf County to make
the decision in order to be able
to compete.
Tapper asks that the matter
be taken up at the next
meeting of the County Board.
The next meeting is Tuesday'
morning of next week..

Last Friday the Sharks
travelled to Blountstown to
take on their conference and
district foes, the Tigers. In
spite of nine erros in the game,
the Sharks placed timely hits
to defeat the Tigers 10-5.
The Sharks wasted no time
getting on the scoreboard as
they started the game with
three big runs and never
looked back. In the first
inning, a key single by David
Bearden, followed by a two
RBI double by Pat Kerigan,
set the stage for the game.
St. Joe picked up another
run in the third, one in the fifth
inning, one in the sixth and
finished the game with a big


four run seventh inning. In the
final inning, Ashley Abrams
singled and Tim Stutzman
placed a two RBI double to
pace the Sharks. Tim Stutz-
man was the winning pitcher,
bringing his record to 3-0.
HAVANA
The Sharks travelled to
Havana last Saturday for a
conference double-header.
The Sharks had an easy time.
of it as Coach Colbert played
the bench to chalk up two
more wins for the home team.
The Sharks won the first game
13-4, and the second game 11-2.
The Sharks scored in every
inning but one in the first
game as Paul Davidson pick-
ed up a double and a single for
three RBI's. Ashley Abrams
added a three RBI triple,
David Bearden a two RBI
single and Bo Burke added
two key singles..


Pat Kerigan ran his record
to 2-2 as St. Joe slammed out
11 hits.
In the second game, Abrams
ripped out two singles, Paul
Davidson a triple and David
Bearden a double. The Sharks
garnered 11 runs for the game.
St. Joe got eight hits in the
game as Ernie Bryan ran his

the services of Russel and
Axon, engineers, to do an
in-depth test of the city's
sewage collection system to
see where areas are which
need repair to st6p infiltration
of surface water.
The city is sending too much
sewage effluent into the treat-"
ment system because of the
infiltration of drainage water,
surface water and rain water,
costing the city money in its
treatment.
Russel and Axon are cur-
rently doing a 201 study of the
collection and treatment sys-
tem and found the collection
system to be leaking a
revelation which was not
altogether news to the Com-
mission.
To pinpoint the problem
areas, the lines must be tested
with smoke and examined
with a TV camera to locate the
broken places so they can be
repaired.
This is the job Russel and,
Axon will do.

Precious
Moments
Sometimes we are so afraid
of losing one we love,
That we are careless and
forget to give thanks to
Gbd above
For giving them to love.
Memories are not forgotten
because they break away
From family ties, but help
enrich their lives from
day to day
For we showed them the
way
So don't destroy the love you
have with your daughter
or with son
By speaking words and
doing things that cannot
be up-done,
Remember love and fun.
So fill the quiet hours with
praise
God gives them for a while
For us to teach them how
to love then pass it with a
smile
For they are our child.
For God meant us to share
our love as He shared us
His Son,
So we should open up our
hearts to share love with
the one
That's learned the joy of
giving love to our
daughter or our son,
Only then, have we won.

to determine what the public
wants the college to do in
community services.
The Florida Legislature,
through the Department of
Education, funds a variety of
non-credit courses and pro-
jects under the heading of
"Community Instructional
Services" or CIS. The GCCC
survey will be used to evaluate
community needs that can be
addressed through CIS pro-
gramming.
Ann Richards, coordinator
of Community Instructional
Services for Gulf Coast point-
ed out that the survey is only
one part of the needs assess-
ment process.
"The survey will be followed
up by a poll of social service
agencies in the tri-county
district," Ms. Richards said.
"This information will by used
to double-check -and confirm
the findings of the community
survey."
This data will then be
correlated with community
data from various statistical.
publications to render an
overall profile of community
education needs, as well as
individual need profiles for
each of the three counties.
The survey that members of
the community served by Gulf
Coast will receive is designed
to evaluate educational needs
in seven categories; environ-
ment, safety, government,
health, human relations, child
rearing and consumer eco-
nomics.
Gulf Coast activities in CIS
programming, in cooperation
with the Bay, Gulf and Frank-
lin County .school systems,
have recently stressed pro-
gramming for the elderly,
displaced homemakers and
consumers as priority mis-
sions.
"Our priorities are related
to the survey results," Ms.
Richards said. "We have to
take stock and see what our
future direction should be."
Dr. Lewis Baber, associate
dean of instruction, is the'
chairman of the Region III
Coordinating Council for CIS
projects and he stressed the

economies, which says more
about unstable conditions than
about Florida's success.
Florida Trend feels that
overall 1980 was a "frighten-
ingly sluggish" year with
some signs of recovery in the
final months. However, when
all Florida's 1980 growth is
adjusted for inflation and
divided by its population, the
progress of the Sunshine State
simply disappears,
Figured on this basis, hous-
ing sales actually were down
16.7 percent; retail sales down


to 0 growth: tourism down 0.6
percent and real per capital
income down 0.9 percent.
1981, the magazine claims,
won't be much better. Real
per capital income will decline
0.7 percent and unemploy-'
ment will increase to six
percent.
Other mounting, long-term
problems stem from growth,
inflation (particularly energy
costs) and federal budget-cut-
ting. Rising energy costs, may
reduce retail spending, which
will cut into the four percent


retail sales tax, a revenue
source on which Florida relies
heavily.
Highway maintenance
looms as another rocky road.
A state Department of Trans-
portation official predicts
gloomily, "At the present
level of gas tax and revenue
ratios, by 1988 we couldn't
even maintain the existing
system, let alone build new
roads." The reason is decreas-
ing gas taxes collected on
decreasing gallons purchased
by motorists.


Figures may .not lie, but
sometimes they can obscure
significant developments in
the Florida economy, accord-
ing to the April issue 'of
Florida Trend,. the business
magazine's annual Economic
Yearbook.
Florida is growing like few
other states. During 1980, the
state's population grew at a
three percent annual rate,
hitting a 'total of 9.74 million
people: Taxable sales jumped
14.8 percent; personal income
rose by 12.6 percent. Approxi-
mately 37 million tourists
spent-$16 billion.
There were 160,000 housing
starts in 1980. At least 62 firms
committed to establish Flor-
ida facilities creating 19,000
jobs and bringing in more than
$1 billion in, investments;
Foreign trade grew from $13
billion'to $16 billion.
These and other commonly
reported statistics tend to
present a far healthier image
of the Florida economy than
really exists, say Florida
'Trend economists. Often bad
years are made to look good
by comparing them to even
worse years. Also, Florida's
economy sometimes is com-
pared to.national or northern


More than 41,000 people
have died on Florida's streets
and highways in motor vehicle
crashes during the last 20
years said the Florida High-
way Patrol today.
"And every year the total
continues to increase," said
Colonel Eldridge Beach,
Patrol director.
"When the other two mil-
lion, seven hundred thousand
persons who were injured


during the same 20 years are
added, the result is stagger-
ing."
"Street crime which takes
many lives and is also on the
upswing may be more sen-
sational but the families and
friends of persons killed in any
manner are always deeply
affected."
The patrol's records show
that traffic deaths in 1981 are
running about 20 percent

n Pet- The 1970's may become
known to historians in later
years 'as the decade in which
terrorism became a viable
yCourq' alternative ,for advancing
,;onor political ends. Hopefully, this
. If you alternative can be successfully
for the contained and eventually

March, eliminated in the 1980's.
According to the Depart-
ment of State, there were 7,300
terrorist incidents across the
4t3.26 world in the last decade. Not
surprisingly, a third of these in-
EENTH cidents were directed against
TE OF American citizens or installa-
UNTY tions. Furthermore, it is
.81-12 estimated that terrorist actions
have cost 3,277 lives. Terrorist
actions span our globe from
Western Europe and the Mid-
dle East to Southeast Asia.
Possibly the most well-known
nt to a terrorists in the last decade
ed the have come under the umbrella
ered in of the Palestinian Liberation'
t, Fdur-
ir Gulf Organization, whose actions -
-styled such as the killing of 11 Israeli
st and athletes at the 1972 Munich
floor of
of st. Olympic games and the seizure

may have, or had, a legitimate
concern and which seek to
2t 42 amend a serious imbalance in
economic or social status.
jant to However, terrorists have cor-
s, the rupted these concerns and use
register the organizations solely as
ICoun-
Snfirst vehicles to espouse their own
titlous demagoguery.
iey win Recently, Secretary of State
chsaid Alexander Haig has accused
the Soviet Union of promoting
terrorist causes for the sole
purpose of destabilizing
4tc4.2 Western and freedom-oriented
nations. Indeed, the Secretary


of State has provided a strong
case for showing Soviet com-
plicity in supplying arms, train-
ing and shelter for a vast array
of terrorist organizations.
Although our nation has
been fortunate enough to
escape the brunt of terrorist ac-
tivity within its own border, it
would be incorrect to state that
our nation has not felt its
wrath. Political assassinations
and indiscriminate bombings
by left-wing and right-wing ex-
tremist groups such as the
Weathermen and the Ku Klux
Klan are on the rise,
Fortunately, the Reagan
Administration has stated the
containment of terrorism is
one of its'top. priorities. Other
Nations concerned with 'the
proliferation of terrorism are
joining together to fight back
by tightening security measures
and boycotting those nations
which harbor or aid terrorists.
In addition, the Senate has
created the Subcommittee on
Security and Terrorism to
monitor domestic and interna-
tional terrorism.
It is imperative that we con-
tinue to combat terrorism if
our nation is to remain free
and strong.
