Thieves Take Dope from Store


Chop Hole In Roof To Gain Entrance


-Thieves broke into three buildings in
downtown Port St. Joe sometime during the
night, Monday, and made off with a quantity of
narcotics and $400 in cash from a drug store.
According to Gulf County Sheriff Ken
Murphy,. the thieves gained entrance to
Campbell's Drug Store, by chopping a hole in
the roof and dropping to the inside, where the
narcotics'and money was taken.
Murphy said it appeared as if the thieves
went up the front of the building to the top, and
used a hatchet or axe to chop a hole in the rear
corner of the building, where they dropped
inside into the drug and prescription depart-
ment of the store.
Once inside, the burglers didn't waste any
time in going straight to the narcotics case and
removing all the class 2 narcotics. "Only the
hard stuff was-taken", said Carl Guilford,
owner of the store. The local druggist pointed to
other drugs which contained considerable
narcotics in their formula, "but they didn't

bother these". Guilford said.
Sheriff Murphy says signs indicate the
thieves must have been startled or alerted by
the regular patrol of the City Police while they
were inside the store: "We can tell where one
stayed outside while the other man went into
the store", Murphy said.
Then, rather than open the rear door of the
stoor and step outside, the thieves made a
production of reaching the outside once again.
Sheriff Murphy said tracks lead across the
Campbell roof to the two-story Masonic
building. They raised a window and went
inside. Once inside they came downstairs to the
outside door but couldn't get it open. Then they
went back upstairs and ransacked several
offices upstairs. Still seeking a way out, they
broke out a window on the south side of the
buidling and crawled out onto the roof once
again.
The pair then broke through the roof of
Kennedy Electric, "still seeking a way to the
ground", Murphy surmised.
Once inside Kennedy's, they didn't take


anything, but they finally managed to reach the
outside and make good.their get-away.
Murphy said that in their odyssey, the
thieves left behind a flashlight and a
screwdriver in Kennedy's building, a glove in
the Masonic building and another glove in the
alley.
Sheriff Murphy said his department had a
couple of suspects under investigation in the
burglary but as of Wednesday morning, were
planning no immediate arrests. "We have a
line on another pair who used this method of
breaking into drug stores in Panama City we
are looking at also", Murphy said.
Another attempt was made to break into
Campbell's Drugs through the roof several
years ago. The thieves didn't make it that time,
however.
As a matter of fact, the operators of the
store didn't know about the break-in attempt
until the first time it rained and the rain came
pouring into the building through the hole in the
top of the roof. The inside ceiling had not been
disturbed.


Lakes Committee Remain On Job



Disagreement Between Gulf and Calhoun Counties Scuttles Plan


It appears as if the attempt
to abolish the Dead Lakes
Water Management Commit-
tee and replace it with a
committee of elected officials
from Gulf and Calhoun coun-
ties, is dead for at least a year.
Gene McClellan, represent-
ing Calhoun County: and the,
Gulf County Commission dis-
4cussed the matter for a long
ime Tuesday hight, over jVit
how the appointed committee
would be made up.
The Gulf County Commis-
sion members felt the com-
mittee should contain three
members from the Gulf Coun-
ty Commission and two from
the Calhoun County Commis-
sion.
McClellan said the Calhoun
Commission would like to see
a committee of three from
each county named. "This
way, the committee would
have to agree to get anything
done", McClellan said.
Gulf County's Commission

tee members from Gulf Coun-
ty and two from Calhoun
for two reasons. The greater
part of the Dead Lakes are in
Gulf County and because Gulf
County has maintained three
members on the committee in
the past.
Clerk Jerry Gates said he
was of the opinion that the
original bill setting up the
Dead Lakeg Committee called
for three members from Gulf
and two members from Cal-
houn.
"This isn't so. We looked at
the bill this afternoon, and it
only says that each county
shall have at least two repre-
sentatives on the board.
Gates acknowledged that
Gulf had always had three on
the board in the past, but.
pointed out there was no legal
reason for the situation.
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man, the prime instigator of
having the Commissioners
declared as the lakes man-
agement body, asked where a


the election, if they were not
already registered in the
county.
The June 2 balloting will
decide whether or not to give
the Commission the authority
to reduce or eliminate all or
part of the ad valorem taxes
which might be levied against
a new or expanding industry
for a period of not more than
five years.
STRAW BALLOT
The County has also agreed
to place a straw ballot on the
June 2 ballot. The straw ballot
would ask the question:.
"If the State will not pur-
chase the street ends (approx-
imately 10) on the beach side
of Highway 98 at St. Joe
Beach within one year, do you
favor purchasing them with
county funds."
The voter is to answer the
question "Yes" or "No".
The street ends in question
is the property which has been
so much in the news lately at
St. Joe Beach. The county has
made an attempt to get the
State of Florida to purchase
the several street ends to
maintain them for the public
use, but the State has refused
to do so because the lots are
not adjoining one another.
The 300 foot stretches of
beach property between the
several lots are already dedi-
cated to the people of Yon's
addition at St. Joe Beach and
are for use by the public.

rider had come from which
has been attached to the bill
which would abolish the pres-
ent Dead Lakes Water Man-
agement Committee. Gort-
man pointed out that the
amendment called for three
members on the future board
from each county.


McClellan said he had asked
Representative Leonard Hall
to include the phrase in his
bill. "I asked him to do it and
he did it", McClellan.
McClellan said he didn't see
what difference it would make
how the committee was made
up. "I don't think a group of

commissioners from either
county would ,do anything
which would damage the other
county", he said.
The Calhoun representative
went on to say he felt Calhoun

Kiwanis "Pancake Day"


Ken Herring opened up the freezer and
removed his piece of fat-back, used for
greasing the Kiwanis pancake cooking
griddle for their annual Pancake Day.
Herring, the pancake chef for the Kiwanis
project, year after year, also uses this same
piece of fat-back for greasing the giriddle,
year after year.
One year, Herring was thrown for a six
yard loss when his wife mistakenly took his
piece of fat-back out of the freezer and used it
to season a pot of beans. This meant bringing
a new piece of fat-back into use, which is still
safe from the clutches of the bean seasoner
for four years in a row.

asking Representative Hall to

and Calhoun County, even
though it is friendly, will cause


their ballot on whether or not

anyhow."
Gortman asked Commis-
sioner Billy Branch what he
thought of dropping the idea to
abolish the committee and
Branch replied, "Mr. Gort-
man, I'm willing to back you
in whatever you want to do in
this matter. You have made
the study of the needs there."


Gortman, who has been
active in trying to get an
active committee in charge of
the Dead Lakes said he felt the
immediate future would prob-
ably best be served by just
dropping the attempt to abol-
ish the present committee and
try to get them to become
more active in management of
the lakes.


Will Dam Be Demolished?


One of the areas in which
Gulf and Calhoun seem to be
in agreement in management
of the Dead Lakes is that the
present dam has to go.
Gene McClellan, represent-
ing Calhoun County before the
County Commission Tuesday
night, said he felt the entire
Commission would be "ex-
tremely happy" if someone
would just pull the dam out by
its roots and let the river and
lakes flow free.
Gulf County Commissioner
Jimmy Gortman said he
thought he knew a man with
an underwater torch who
would be glad to cut the dam
off at the bottom.
Gortman, who supports the
removal of the dam, has
joined by his fellow Commis--
sioner, Doug Birmingham,
who wants the Dead Lakes
"Back like they used to be
years ago."
One of the reasons for the
concern by the Commission-
ers is they feel the present
draw-down system is inade-
quate to drain the lakes. They
also feel that since the Corps
of Engineers have installed
the dam at Chattahoochee and
regulate the Apalachicola
Riverwaters there, there is
now little to no need for the
dam to maintain adequate
water depths in the Dead
Lakes.
The goal of the Commission
now seems two-fold. One, to
get control of the lakes in the
hands of the Commissioners
themselves, and, two, to re-
move the dam from the lower


end of the Dead Lakes,
allowing them to flow free.
The Commission seems to
be convinced by expert advice
they have received, that re-
moval of the dam would allow


the natural flow of the water to
keep the lakes free from
bothersome water weeds
which have taken over the
lakes during the past few
years.

Beach Danger

Sgt. Charles Lamb of Tyndall AFB says it Is important
that those using the beaches in Gulf County these days
refrain from picking up strange objects on the beach. In the
photo above, Sgt. Lamb is picking up one of these "strange
objects" he is warning about. It happens to be a flare used to
mark the location of downed drone targets. Even after the
flare has been used, it contains a residue of white phosphorus
on the inside of the cannister which ignites on contact with
air. "Any scratch or sharp blow could rupture the surface
and cause the phosphorous to burn", Sgt. Lamb said. The
resulting flame could result in death or serious burns for the
handler. "Above all, don't place the strange objects in the
trunk or your car or take them home", Sgt. Lamb said. "If
you see a strange cannister object on the beach, call us at
Tyndall and we will let you know if it is safe or not."

State



More

We will admit to not being
knowledgable about the inne]
workings of the state's financial
i picture. We haven't seen the
i proposed budget and probably
couldn't make head or tails out of ii
if we had, nor have we seen a list o
the needs for expenditures.
All we have knowledge of i
: that the State of Florida has a large
kitty of cash sitting in the banks
and we have a need of drawing up
priorities for our intended cash
Qutlays.
One thing we do know and that
is if the question of whether or not
to strap another penny of sales tax
on the back of the tax payer is
going to create animosity between
two such good friends and like
thinkers as Senators Dempsey
Barron and W. D. Childers, the
ii question bears exploring as to
whether we actually need that
extra penny added to our sales tax
burden.
We will agree that the sales tax
Sis a pretty painless way to pay
i taxes, but it is still another tax bite
and it nibbles away at our income
ii just as another $50.00 or $100.00 a
year on bur property taxes does. If
we sit down and add it up, another
penny on the sales tax would
probably cost the average wage
i earner more than a $100.00 addition
Sto his ad valorem taxes.
Another argument against an
:added penny to the sales tax is that
"the state lawmakers have stopped

Dredging

Dredge boat activities were witnessed in the mouth of the
Gulf County this past week, as this crane, mounted on a
barge cleared out the entrance to the canal from St. Joseph
Bay. The canal, which starts near Highland View, connects
St. Joseph Bay with the Intracoastal Waterway about six
miles inland. -Star photo *

the local government tax source.
Now, the added penny on the sales
tax is being promoted to furnish
money for transportation, law
enforcement and social programs
likely to be hurt by federal budget
cuts.
In the meantime, the counties
and cities can just bite the bullet
and try to meet state and federal
expenditure requirements with less
and less money while maintaining
essential services at home.
It's a mystery to us how the
state of Florida can be supportive
of a federal tax (and resulting
income) cut, they can mandate an
ad valorem tax cut through higher
exemptions, but the state must
have all the money the Legislature
and Governor wishes to spend in
any given fiscal year.
SWe read the other day where
President Franklin Roosevelt
guided the nation out of depression
with a White House staff of 37
people. Today, the same staff
numbers in the thousands. The
same thing has happened in the
state. If the State of Florida is to
follow the mandate of the nation
last November, we think the
present session of the Legislature
calls for a serious soul searching of
what is necessary and what is not
when it comes to financing.
An added penny to the sales tax
is a tax increase. An extra five to
six cents added to the gasoline tax
is a tax increase. With the trend
today toward reducing taxes and a
bulging state bank account in
Tallahassee, we fail to see the
justification for an extra penny, or
five, or six.


Ambitious Mr. Innis


The actions by Roy Innis,
:director of CORE, in Atlanta last
week, hardly disguised the evident
Attempt to gain a little national
recognition through- manipulation
Sof an unfortunate situation.
Mr. Innis claimed to have
evidence of the guilt of a man for
T'the slaying of some of the young
Sboys in Atlanta over the past 24
months. Innis, who was labeled as
Being in trouble with CORE for
lack of leadership and a sliding
national support, appeared to be
using the situation to bolster his
fading light. We hope that.isn't so,
since a person who leads such a
strong organization as CORE
should be above reproach.
With the position entrusted to
him, he has a responsibility to be
candid in his actions.


Proof by the Atlanta police that
Innis' suspect was not a suspect
added to the suspicion that Innis
was playing with the agony of the
people to further his own position.
With the disagreement be-
tween the Atlanta police depart-
ment and the FBI, we suppose
Innis figured the time was right to
cause a sensation in the case and
have his findings accepted due to
the disagreement between the two
law enforcement bodies.
So, not only has the murderer
or murderers snuffed the life of two
dozen young boys in the largest city
of the South, he has also succeeded
in eroding the public trust of two
large bodies of law enforcement
and given an ambitious public
figure the vehicle to further his own
ambitions.


GettingTo Know


Small Towns


Dear Mr. Ramsey:
Although I do not wish to
renew my subscription to
"The Star", I have enjoyed
reading it. I appreciated your
weekly comments, in particu-
lar, your observations about
the party and gift shower at
your house. It could have been
in any small town. I've
attended many, just like that.
I have' never been to
Florida, but, through reading
"The Star", know a little
about Port St. Joe. For awhile
I received the "Wakulla
News", too, and pondered Bill
Phillips ideas. I subscribe to
small town newspapers to
"get aquainted" with an area.
Probably the next weekly will
be from the Carolinas, as I
have not been there, either.


Because I live in a small
town I know how a weekly
paper reveals "home-town"
feelings. In this era of scare-
headlines it is nice to re-
member all the small towns
are keeping their economy
going, having church suppers,
cheering the basketball team
and sharing human events
from birth to death without
city indifference. May small'
towns flourish forever, and
their weekly newspapers, too.
Since I enjoyed reading of
your SUNbelt, I thought you
might like to see a folder on
our SNOWbelt.
Happy Easter to all the
Ramseys. I gather there are
quite a few of them. And,
thank you for the interesting
reading.
Sincerely, Eleanor Knight

the W
by Adolph Bedsole
Children and young people
are not the only ones going
about their daily lives
"stoned".
Now "stoned"isa relatively
new word. It is a word
designed to describe the men-
tal and physical intoxication
.of one under the influence of
drugs. The victim is usually
able to function somewhat like
a robot. But his understanding
and comprehension of life
about him is so distorted that
he lives in another realm other
than that which his body
occupies. Actually it is drunk-
eness on drugs.
One who is "stoned" is cut
loose from his world of reality.
He is caught up in a world of
fantasy and illusion. Tempo-
rarily, his mind and emotions
become detached from his body
and his environment. He be-
comes another creature in
another world.
But-wait-many adults,
too, are going about their daily
lives "stoned "-spiritually
and morally! It is a sad
picture to see a spiritually or
morally stoned parent shed-


world Go By
ding crocodile tears over a son
or daughter who habitually
becomes "stoned" on drugs.
In both cases a sense of right
and wrong evaporates. He is
the led to behave in whatever
manner his detorted imagina-
tion dictated at the moment.
Americans are wondering
what has happened to the
traditional American way of
life. One answer is that many
of our youth are "stoned" on
drugs physically and mentally
while many adults are stoned
on Freedom-spiritually and
morally.
Adults feel free to cheat,
drink, commit adultery, lie,
rob, steal, profane God's
name, become sexual de-
viates, ignore God and His
church, and rebel at the
spiritual and moral laws re-
vealed in the Bible. And they
expect society to make such
life-styles respectable.
The tragedy is that the
children of such stoned adults
become the innocent victims.
Can you imagine a worthy
parent using profanity, or
committing adultery (living


together some call it), or
ignoring God in the home?
Many children go wrong be-
cause they were brought up by
spiritually and morally
"stoned" parents.
That includes both mothers
and fathers.
Our cherished freedom-
chased to excess is the culprit!
Like liquor and drugs, the
freedom phobia has snare
millions of Americans into I
state of spiritual and morl
drunkeness.
A word from the Bible is
"awake thou that sleepest and
arise from the dead".
Adults whose moral and
spiritual understanding and
comprehension is so distorted
about the true and eternal true
values that he, too, functions
like a robot-all because they
are free to make their own
decisions. Such adults may
never touch liquor or drugs.
Nevertheless, they, too, are
"STONED".
So, as you watch the world
go by, why not reach for a star
that can deliver you now and
forever from this danger of
being a stoned adult? That
star is JESUS CHRIST! He
gets priorities in proper order
for all eternity.
Parents, He will assure you
that your children will not
stumble into hell over a stoned
mother or dad. How about it?

better stay away from the Country Club
if I want to get any fishing done.
Cecil, Sr., had the bug bite him


food and hard last week, as you saw
reported here on this page in The Star.
He hit a hole in one. Now, there will be
to keeping him off the course, even
with being right on the edge of moving
into a brand new building here on
Williams Avenue in the near future.
Since he hit the ball into the hole in only
one stroke, he will have the golf germ
good and solid. There will be no curing
him now.


Monday of last week I was in St. Joe

and there in the hardware store was
Charlie Brock, going on at Cecil, Sr.,
about his hole in one.


"You need to take that ball to the

said.
Cecil, Sr., put on his best laconic
expression, never missed a sylable and
told Charlie, matter-of-factly, "I

Confidence!

IN ALL OUR YEARS of putting out
The Star, working long hours, attending
meetings, covering news stories, etc.,
we have never won a Pulitzer prize.
After the events of the past few weeks,
I'm not sure if I want to win the
Pulitzer. It seems you can tell a tale,
embroider a few facts to make them
sound good, make it sound sensational
and you are a shoo-in for the Pulitzer.
Nobody on this wonderful news-
paper has ever won the Pulitzer, but so
far as I know, nobody has ever written a
story for this newspaper which was an
outright fabrication, either.
Janet Cooke, a reporter for the
Washington Post took the prize, then
had to give it back when her sensational
story turned out to be a fairy tale. The
Post had to apologize and Miss Cooke
had to quit.
I would imagine she quit just before
she was fired. If a newspaper can't
have its reporting trusted by the public,
they are in trouble.
If a reporter has to make up stories
to print just to fill up space and labels it


news, he or she is no reporter.
Miss Cooke not only damaged her
own reputation, she also damaged the
reputation of the Post. The Post tried to
regain some of its credibility by
printing an apology and explaining the
situation to its readers. I hope they
were successful. It is a sad thing to AD
a great newspaper have its name
sullied by the irresponsible actions by

I HAVE FOUND that people
around here call, send flowers or cards
or inquire about you and offer prayers
for those who are ill.
Just recently, it was learned that
Edward Ball has been placed in the
Ochsner Foundation Hospital in New
Orleans and has since slipped into
critical condition.
The 93 year old financier, well
known around here as the guiding force
behind St. Joe Paper Company, fell in
December and has not been able to
recover from the fall.
Mr. Ball may not be able to take
your calls, but I'm sure he would
appreciate your prayers.

At Eligibility
r Many people receiving
social,securitypayments will
have their cases reexamined
in the near future to make
sure they continue' to be
eligible for benefits, David
Robinson, Social Security
Field Representative for Gulf
j County, said recently.
Social security is required to
Review most disability cases
at least once every three years
starting in 1982 because of the
1980 disability amendments.
The reviews are conducted to
determine if a person is still
f disabled, Robinson said.
As an important first step in
J making the required reviews,
social security is significantly
increasing the number of
continuing disability investi-
88 gations it makes.
rea People found no longer
disabled during the case re-
ome in- views will have the opportun-
on Ser- ity to appeal the decision,

Attends Youth Seminar


Miss Cynthia Rogers


Miss Cynthia Rogers,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Vance Rogers, attended the
Florida Youth Leadership
Seminar hosted by the Or-
lando Jaycees on April 24-26.
One hundred forty-five soph-
omores from high schools
across Florida were invited to
attend since they had been
selected by a faculty commit-
tee earlier in the school year
to receive recognition as the
recipient of the Hugh O'Brian
Youth Foundation nomination
for their respective schools.
Students were exposed to
leaders in government,
energy, computer technology,
business, law, and other fields
in the American Incentive
System.
The seminar included field
trips to a defense plant and to
Walt Disney's Epcot Preview
Center.
Douglas G. Palmer, 4aycee
State Project Chairman said,


"Your student's selection to
participate in the 1981 Florida
Youth Leadership Seminar is
a reflection of your school's
contribution to quality educa-
tion."
The slogan of the Hugh
O'Brian Youth Foundation is


"Motivating Tomorrow's
Leaders Today".
Of her experience at the
conference, Miss Rogers said,
"I made a lot of new friends
and learned a lot of new
things. It was fun but I'm
glad to be back home"..'

Ambulance Rescue Crew Gets Extrication Course


Port St. Joe's Emergency Ambulance Squad and several members from the
Wewahitchka squad spent 16 hours in training here in Port St. Joe last week end. The
ambulance service crew members were given extensive instructions in safely removing a
victim trapped in a wrecked automobile. The service learned more about using their
hydraulic powered extrication tool and in using any tool they might have handy.
Gary Briese, an instructor with the Emergency Medical Services of Florida was in town
giving the crews a crash course in the methods of rescue. Spending nearly 10 hours in the
classroom and six hours in practical demonstrations, the rescue squad was taught to open
the top off an automobile, using only hacksaws in only three and a half minutes.
In the photo above, left, rescue service volunteers David Horton and Joe Gortman use
the "Jaws of Lift" tool to take the top off a car.
Bottom left photo shows Bobby Plair, Linda Gilmore and Sheila Harper remove
"victim" from an automobile.
In the photo above, instructor Gary Briese, right, shows Frenchie Ramsey and David
Horton how to go about removing a door from a car without harming the victims inside.

time to relax in the lovely
surroundings before lunch
was served at 12:30 p.m.
This was followed by
several boat rides down the
wild, scenic Wakulla River,
and quite a number of mem-
bers and visitors enjoyed the
glassbottom boat and or the
jungle boat trips.
With a membership of more


than 100 senior citizens, Stiles
Brown, the president of this
AARP group, has expressed a
desire to better this up to. a
total of 200 seniors, from Port
St. Joe, Wewahitchka, Over-

Leaguer's Poem


He stands at the plate with
heart pounding fast.
The bases are loaded; the die.
has been cast.
Mom' and Dad cannot help
him, he stands all alone.
A hit at this moment would
send the team home.
The ball meets the plate; he
swings and he misses,
There's a groan from the
crowd, with some boos and
some hisses.
\A thoughtless voice cries:
'Strike out the bum'.


Tears fill his eyes; the game's
no longer fun.
So open up your heart and give
him a break. For it's
moments like this, a man
you can make.
Keep this in mind when you
hear someone forget.
He's just a little boy and not a
'man yet.

The motto "In God We
Trust" first appeared on
the 1864 two-cent piece.

The week's two wins gave
the Sharks a 12-10 record for
the season. Most of the wins
came late in the season, as the


Sharks went five straight
games at the beginning before
they got into the win column.
Three of the five remaining
Shark losses came to visiting
out-of-state teams, leaving the
Sharks with a 12-2 record since
the first five games of the
season.

Leonard J. Hall
State Representative

The Florida House of Rep-
resentatives has begun mov-
ing towards the implemen-
tation of some type of Work-
fare Program for Public As-
sitance recipients in this state.
The consensus of many of
the House members is that
this country has lost much of
its productivity. We believe
that we should ALL get
together and move forward in
increasing our national pro-
dictivity. This movement
mut include those receiving
any kind of public assistance,
as I believe they should also
assist in reaching this goal by
pulling their fair share.
To help in achieving this
end. the House Health and
Rehabilitative Services Com-
mittee this week passed two
bills, The first was Proposed
Committee Bill No. 8, entitled
Public Assistance Productiv-
ity Act (PAPA), and the other


was Rep. Tom Woodruff's
(R-St. Petersburg) bill which
establishes a program of
workfare throughout the state.
Hopefully, through this type of
legislation, we will come up
with a program that will
establish a system that will
help our productivity in this
country to increase.
Legislation This Week
HB-607
An Act relating to tax
collection; states that the
opening bid for a homestead
being sold for a tax certificate
has to be at least one-half the
assessed value if the bid is
being made by a certificate
holder other than the county.
This bill also allows for the
title holder of the homestead
to redeem the property prior
to the issuance of such a tax
deed.
HB-202
This bill would have allowed
the admission of minors to
horse racing in this state. This
bill was killed on the floor in a


vote Ui ul e o .
HB-19
This bill exempts tickets to
the National Football League
from having a sales tax
attached to the total cost.
HB-605
Provides that certain tax
liens expire 20 years after the
lien is perfected; gives the


metnod of perfecion of me
lien; provides the result of
failure to have the lien per-
fected within the specified
time limit; also, provides a
statute of limitation for collec-
tion of taxes.

HUTTO


SPACE SHUT*************************
SPACE SHUTtLE


A great deal has been writ-
ten over the past few weeks
about the Space Shuttle pro-
gram and our "return to
space.". While I hesitate to
belabor the many solid points
which have been made
throughout the media, I do
want to emphasize the value of
the shuttle program from my
perspective as a Member of
Congress and of the House
Committee on Armed Services.
First, and foremost, the
successful launch of the shuttle
notified the world friend
Sand foe alike that the U.S.
Still has the resolve -nd deter-
mination to lead the world in
space research. The
psychological impact, both at
home and abroad, was positive
and impressive. We can still
"do things right" and have
them work as planned. Let us
put behind us the desert scenes
of last April and look to the
future knowing that we can
still put together the most com-
plicated piece of machinery in
the world and have it work
flawlessly. The risks were high,
but the rewards were great.
Secondly, the Space Shuttle
program, which is now being
referred to as the Space
Transportation System (STS),
is going to open areas never
before imagined or understood
by most of us. Indeed, it is now
quite possible that our children.
and grandchildren will travel in
space in much the same way we.
travel across the country. In-
stead of the sky being the limit,
now the universe will be open
to us all.
Furthermore, the shuttle
will enable us to perform ac-
tivities in space which will
directly benefit us on earth.
NASA officials and private in-
dustry are now aggressively
pursuing plans to establish
whole factories in space. Under
these space conditions, many
manufacturing technologies
not possible on earth will
become a reality with shuttle-
like vehicles transporting the
necessary materials into space


and returning with finished
products. In fact, many of
these technologies were shown
in Skylab experiments during
the mid-1970's. The pursuit of
these new technologies was
hampered only by our inability
to move massive amounts back
and forth. In the very near
future, we will be able to pro-
duce substitutes for many of
the critical materials we are
dependent upon today.
I am encouraged that in the
not-too-distant future we may
be able to place giant solar
reflectors in space that wil
bring us a vast. amount of
energy at low cost. Hopefully,
this will help make America
self-sufficient in energy and
eliminate our need for foreign
oil.
In conclusion, I can only
state that the Shuttle program
has catapulted us far ahead of
the Soviets in space. In the
years to come, the true benefits
of this program will unfold
daily.

Gulf County Schools Face Three Pressing Problems


Gulf County Schools Face Three Pressing Problems


Superintendent of Schools,
Walter Wilder, told the Rotary
Club last Thursday Gulf Coun-
ty's school system Yaces three
major problems inthe immed-
iate and near future.
The system faces the prob-
lems of losing some $130,000 in
federal subsidies and funding,
is bothered with parent and
public apathy and has a need
for a realistic pay scale for
.teachers.
Wilder said the cut-backs on
federal funds during the com-
ing school year will be most
felt in two areas; lunch room
operations and teaching aides.
Wilder said the schools face
the prospect of having to
charge from $1.00 to $1.25 for
School lunches and eliminat-
ing 14 teaching aide positions
in the new school year. "We'll
have to charge what it costs us
toproduce a meal in our lunch
room. Presently, this cost is
running around $1,00 plus
pennies per plate and will
'likely rise as time goes on",
Wilder said. He warned that
there will probably be more
cuts coming as soon as the
school system learns just how
drastic the federal fund cuts
will be and which ones the
state doesn't pick up.
SIn speaking of parent and
public apathy, Wilder said he

Americans

Must Save

Resources
America no longer has
enough resources to use them
once and throw them away,
Eli Wallach, narrator of a film
shown to the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday said, as Wallach and
the film pointed out some
cities across the nation are
conserving water by using
waste water over again.
The film pointed out that
water which goes into sewers
across the land is 98 percent
pure water with some two
percent impurities. "The trick
is to get that volatile two
percent out of the water and
use it over again", Wallach
said.
The film showed several
, applications where the water
Swas treated to a degree, then
piped to an agricultural appli-
cation where the nutrients
remaining in the water ferti-
lize and the water irrigates
crops, producing an abundant
harvest and putting the water
back into the ground for
further purification. The wa-
ter is then piped to a lake or
stream where it is put back
into the water supply.
Wallach pointed out that
over the past decade the push
for clean water has caused
communities to spend some
$40 billion to clean up water
effluent through chemical and
conventional methods of
waste water treatment. The
film pointed out that the
irrigation method saves con-
siderably on the treatment
and uses the water over and
over again.
The application was espe-
cially cost effective in areas of
high industrial concentration.
Guests of the club were Key

Parker, Billy Merchant, Bry-
an Milton and Penny Pendar.

Making

Repairs

at Plant
The Crystal River nuclear ,
plant, which has been off line
this week while one of four
mdin steam isolation valves is
repaired, will remain out of
service for several more days
in order to .make modifica-
tions to all four valves. Plant
management, through contin-
uing analysis of the cause of
the failure and the potential
impact on safety of operation,
and after consultation with
Rockwell, International's
Pump Division (the manu-
facturer of the valves), has
decided that modifications to
the hydraulic snubbers should
be made at this time.
As the modifications are
being made, the plant will be
brought up to level just below
operational. This means that
when all four valves have been


modified, it can be returned to
service at full power. Present
estimates would make that
time between Tuesday and
Thursday of next week. The
SNRC has granted approval for
the plant to begin heat-up.
The parts for repair of the
valve actuator that failed are
all now on site and it is being
reassembled.


was not speaking of apathy
toward school programs. "We
have become a society of
making our kids too indepen-
dent too early in life, before
they are ready to accept
independence", he said. The
Superintendent said the trend
today is for a need for both
parents to work. Since they
can't devote time to their
children, they give them mon-
ey, wheels and clothing and

-make them independent of the
need for parents. "This will
not work", Wilder said, "Kids
do not want to be independent
too early."
He said that in spite of this
situation, school performance
has improved over the last 20
to 30 years. He pointed out that
in 1950, slightly over 50
percent of the students who
started school graduated. Now
the percentage is near 80


percent. He said that in 1950,
only 10 percent of blacks who
entered school graduated. To-
day it is 76 percent. "Reading
scores have increased greatly
in the last decade", he said.
"Still the freedom today's kids
receive have caused their test
scores to nosedive".
Wilder said the United
States has more students
between ages 15 and 18 in
school than any nation in the
world. As an interesting com-
parison, he pointed out that it
costs an average of $1,700 to
keep a child in school, $8,600 to
keep a prisoner in a state

In addressing the third
problem, Wilder pointed out
that teachers have lost money
in earning power in the past 10
years. He conceded that tea-
cher salaries look pretty good
today as compared to past
years, but he stressed that the
buying power of that salary is
less now than it was 10 years
ago.
He pointed out that require-

new teachers to spend one
year in internship, after four
years of college, "but with the
purchasing power of the tea-
cher salary, requiring five
years of preparation for a new
teacher is going to create a
teacher shortage in just a very
few years."
Wilder pointed out that
"Gulf County has the finest
school district in the state of
Florida. It has happened by
local parents becoming in-
volved and the work of a corps
of dedicated teachers".
Mike Tucker of Blountstown
was a guest of the club.

(end)
Commissioner Birmingham
moved that the Board adopt
Ordinance No. 81-3 Commis-
sioner Gortman seconded for
discussion, and upon vote the
motion was passed unani-
mously. Commissioner
Branch and Money wanted the
minutes to reflect that they do
not agree with the fees to be
charged on building permits
for mobile homes. Commis-
sioner Branch also asked that
the minutes reflect that the
reason for the increase on
building permit fees is to
prevent having to subsidize
the costs of the inspections
with ad valorem taxes.
Advertise Bids Overstreet
Fire Truck
Mr. Troy David of the Over-
street Fire Department ap-
peared before the Board to ask
that the Board loan them
money to buy a fire truck.
Commissioner Birmingham
moved the Board loan the
Overstreet Fire Department
$3,500.00 to be taken from the
Capital Outlay fund for the
purpose of buying a fire truck.
Commissioner Gortman
seconded the motion and it
passed unanimously. During a
discussion that followed, the
Clerk was directed to adver-
tise for bids on the fire truck.
Pump-White City
Fire Truck
Mr. Daniel Kirkland of the
.White City Fire Department
appeared before the Board
stating that the White City
Fire Department needs a.
pump for their fire truck.
Commissioner Birmingham
moved the Board lend the
White City Fire Department
up to $1,000.00 from the
Capital Outlay Fund to buy the
needed pump. Commissioner
Branch seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.
Meadows Building Permit
Beaches Area
The Chairman brought up
the subject of the litigation
between Theodore B.
Meadows and this Board,
wherein the Circuit Court, on
March 29th entered a Perem-
tory Writ of Mandamus, com-
manding the County to issue a
building permit to Mr.
Meadows for the'construction
of a building on the West side
of U.S. 98 across from Ponce
De Leon Street at Yon's
Addition to Beacon Hill.
Deputy Clerk Core reported
that Mr. Mark Proctor, At-
torney for the State Depart-
ment of Natural Resources,
advised him today by tele-
phone that by request of this
Commission, his Department
has studied that possibility of
State, or the State and County,
aquiring title to all street ends
opposite Yon's Addition to
Beacon Hill. He said there are
three methods of acquiring
title: 1. Under the Environ-
mental Endangered Land Pro-
gram, which this property
does not qualify. 2. The local
assistance grant program
where the State and County
would each pay 50 percent of
the total costs; that this pro-
gram is out because the
County has refused to pay 50
percent of the total costs and
3. The State Parks and Recre-
ation Plan. He said his Depart-
ment made an on-site survey
of the property and found that
the property invloved is not
contiguous, which disqualifies
it from consideration under
this plan. He then said that
his report to the Govenor will
be that this matter be closed.
The Attorney advised as to
the Writ of Mandamus, stating
the County must comply with
the Court Order.
Commissioner Birmingham
suggested that a special ref-
erendum election be held to
determine whether or not the
taxpayers want to purchase
the property in question.
Commissioner Gortman
asked if all street ends could
be obtained even though some
owners did not want to sell.
The Attorney explained the
law as to eminent domain and
said it may be hard to prove to
the Court that this property is
needed for a public park.
Commissioner Gortman asked
if the new Comprehensive
Plan would take care of this
matter. The answer was nega-
tive.
After discussing the need for
a set-back line, there was a
motion by Commissioner
Birmingham, seconded by
Commissioner Branch, that


an Ordinance be adopted.


establishing a set-back line,
the same as established in the
emergency ordinance. Vote -
Aye: Birmingham, Branch,
and the Chairman. Nay: Gort-
man and Money.
There was a motion by
Commissioner Branch,
seconded by Commissioner
Birmingham for the Board to
instruct its Attorney to file an
appeal as to the Writ of
Mandamus. Vote Aye:
Branch and Birmingham.
Nay: Gortman, Money, and
the Chairman. The Chairman
stated he voted against the
motion after the Attorney
advised it would be a hard
matter to overturn the Courts
Writ because if it was over-
turned, the matter would
come back to the Circuit
Court, who would most likely
allow errors to be corrected,
after which a permit would
have to be issued.
Mr. E.F. Gunn, Building Of-
ficial, stated that ha wanted to
' defend himself as to the
Meadow building permit. He
said that he was accused of
doing something wrong and
that certain people had in-
dicated he didn't know what
he was doing in'approving the
application. He then said, "I
did know what I was doing;
everything was done alright
according to our building
code, which is the same as the
Southern Standard Building
Code. I know every require-
ment set out in the code. I
followed each and every re-
quirement set out in the code.
I followed each and every
section pertaining to this
application; the permit was
100 percent right and had it not
been, it would not have been
issued: that I am not in the
argument between those who
want it, I am for neither side".
Mr. Gunn went on to explain
some of the requirements set
out in the building code. He
advised the Board that Mr.
DeWayne Manuel is an excel-
lent building inspector.
A long discussion followed.
Mrs. Doris Schott told of
finding the Meadow building
plans not sufficient. Mrs.
Dave May questioned the
variance issued by the State in
that the plans call for a
building wider than the lot and
asked who would supervise
the variance. It was assumed
that the State will supervise
its variance because the
County Code calls for no plat
plan because the property is
not in a subdivision. Mr. Dave
May requested the Board to
consider establishing a ten
foot set-back line, which would
help preserve the rest of the

employees' pay raises retro-
active if that was the intent of
the Board. Commissioner
Gortman moved the Board
make all pay raises retro-
active for current county
employees. Commissioner
Branch seconded the motion
and it passed unanimously.

Planning Council
Commissioner Gortman
asked the Board if it would be
possible to replace Mr. Rod-
ney Herring on the Technical
Review Committee of the
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council with someone not
affiliated with the Board. Mr.
Gortman's request was made
based on Mr. Herring's work
load being too great. Ad-
ministrative Assistant Pitts
said that the person replacing
Mr. Herring should be some-
one affiliated with the Board


and that he would supply the

St. Joe Beach W&S
Commissioner Branch
asked that Administrative As-
sistant Tommy Pitts give a
brief report on the public
hearings held at White City
and St. Joe Beach concerning
the proposed water .systems
for those areas. Mr. Pitts
reported that the general
consensus at White City was to
continue with the study. Mr.
Pitts stated the feelings of the
citizens at St. Joe Beach were
not overwhelming in support
of the water system. Mr. Pitts
said the people on St. Joe
Beach felt that the monthly
bill was too high. Adminm-
strative Assistant Pitts re-
commended that the Board
proceed with the final study
or the water systems, es-
pecially for the White City
area. Commissioner Branch
moved the Board have their
engineers proceed with the
final study for the water
system at White City and St.
Joe Beach.
Maintenance Dept.
Commissioner Branch in-
formed the Board that Mr.
Presley, the County Mainten-
ance Supervisor, is in need of
help in his department. Three
possible solutions were
brought up:
1. have the Road Depart-
ment employees help occa-
sionally.
2. Sheriff's prisoners could
be utilized in this capacity.
3. Mr. Presley's utility fund
could be checked to see if he
has enough excess money to
Shire temporary help.
This question was tempo-
rarily passed to give the
Board time to consider the
alternatives.

Commissioner Branch
asked whether or not the land

fitting can also be applied to
the addition of landscape
materials to control the cli-
mate of your home.
As with a ,new constructed
home you must first deter-
mine the orientation of your
home in relation to the sun or
street. The amount of retro-
fitting will vary with orienta-
tion. Houses oriented with the

will require more extensive
plantings for shade then.
houses with an east-west
orientation. Provide shading
as much as possible on east
and west walls, since these
will experience the greatest
impact from the sun's rays.
Trees effectively provide
needed shade. With proper
pruning, trees may also have
a favorable effect on air
circulation. Proper placement
of tree related to the location
of the sun during the time of
high heat load. Latitude, time
of day, and time of year are
determinants for the location
of the sun and for the sun's
effect on shade direction.
Mass plantings of shrubs
may direct or deflect wind
direction. Shrubs may also
provide shade to reduce glare
and reflected radiation while
the sun is low in the sky.
Additional benefits may be
derived from moderate reduc-
tion of noise and air pollution
by using mass shrub and tree
plantings. Skilled design a-
avoids the problem of blocking

When space may not allow
tree plantings for shade, vin-
ing plants may provide relief
from solar radiation. Trained
on a trellis or arbor, vines
may provide a canopy similar
to tree canopy. Vines, how-
ever, do not require the
ground space required by a
tree. Of course, proper selec-
tion is essential to avoid
excessive maintenance. The
trellis or arbor should be
placed to allow adequate air
circulation.
Vegetated soil surfaces af-
fect the air temperature in a
'.vorable manner. Brick and
concrete, on the other hand,
reflect solar radiation and
often causes discomfort from
glare and heat. Asphalt ab-
sorbs solar radiation and

Concrete patios reflect and
re-emit considerable amounts
of solar radiation. A raised
wooden deck is cooler because
wood is a poor heat conductor
and the raised design allows
air to circulate underneath.
Driveways and walks are
often concrete, brick or as-
phalt. Use of mulching mat-
erials, treated wood or brick
with interspersing ground
cover will produce less heat
build-up than large areas of
hard, reflective surfaces.
These passive energy con-

Wise landscaping results in
substantial savings to the
homeowner in'their monthly
utility bills as well as helps
reduce state and national
energy consumption.
