The Rain Finally Came


After 36 days with no measurable amount
of rainfall, the clouds opened up yesterday
morning and put eight-tenths of an inch of
rain on a parched Port St. Joe.
According to Mrs. Emily Simmons, who
keeps up with rainfall here, the last rainfall
here was on April 1, when a tenth of an inch of
moisture fell.
As dry as it has been, it has been drier in
the spring before. Back in April, 1967, there


was not the first drop of rain for the entire
month. Then, in April of 1968, Port St. Joe had
only two-tenths of an inch of rainfall.
As The Star went to press yesterday
afternoon, it looked as if more rainfall relief
was in sight to end the longest dry spell
around here in 14 years.
Plants, like the one at left, were grateful
for tire welcome drink of water.

Engineers Recommend Changes





201 Study Finished


Ken Schenck with Russel
and Axon, engineers, presided
over a public hearing Tuesday
night of the city's recently
completed 201 study of its
Wastewater Treatment Plant
operations.
The study, mandated and
largely paid for by the En-
vironmental Protection Agen-
cy of the Federal Govern-
ment, made an in-depth study
of the plant and its operations.
The study has stretched, over
the past two years and cost
some $120,000.
The report on the study,
presented to the Commission
some few weeks ago, was

County Court Has


40 to Enter Pleas


County Court hada busy day
on plea day Tuesday, with 40
cases being placed before
Judge David Taunton entering
pleas for the offense with
which the several defendants
had been charged.
All of the cases involved
were misdemeanors.
Of the 40 cases presented, 23
face trials, while the others
either did not show up or
estreated their bonds, which
in effect, pleads the defendant
, guilty and.forfeits his bond.
As a sign of the times, the
most cases were filed for
'fishing with a license. Seven
cases were recorded, along
with four cases of, failure to
have the proper safety devices
in the boat.
Similar cases were filed
against one for allegedly
taking fish illegally and a
second defendant for illegally


killing protected game.
Six cases of driving without
a license or driving with a
suspended license were an-
swered in the session Tues-
day.
Five cases of issuing worth-
less checks were brought
before the judge to be answer-
ed by the defendants.
Four of the 40 cases heard
were for the charges of assault
or battery, with all these cases
bound over for trial.
Two counts of failure to
purchase city occupation li-
censes were filed and both
defendants plead not guilty.
One charge was filed for
larceny of food stamps, petit
larceny, turning in, a false
ambulance alarm and reck-
less display of a firearm.
Fines were levied in all the
cases.

ers Go to Polls


T In First Primary


Port St. Joe voters will go to the polls next
Tuesday in the first of two pinmaries to select
three commissioners to the City Commission
roster, and fill one unexpired term.
.Ironically all of the posts for full two year
terms are unopposed. Only the one year
Question of serving out the remainder of the
term of the l4te John Robert Smith will be on
Tuesday's ballot.
Three candidates will be seeking this one
year' of office. Alton Fennell, David Horton
and Nathan Peters, Jr., will be on the ballot.
If neither of the three candidates receive a
majority of the votes cast, the two top
vote-getters will be on the second primary
ballot two weeks later.
Candidates not on the ballot Tuesday will
be Billy Fleming, who is a candidate to
succeed veteran Tom S. Coldewey on the
Commission. Incumbents, Frank Pate, Jr.,
and Wesley R. Ramsey, were unopposed in
their bids for re-election as Mayor-Commis-
sioner and Commissioner. These three
unopposed candidates will go into office for
full two year terms.
POLLING
The City elections utilize only one polling
place, as opposed to four in the City utilized
by county and state elections.
All voting will be done at the Fire Station
behind City Hall. The polls will be open from
7:00 a.m., to 7:00 p.m. Voting machines will
be used for the balloting.


Election officers include: Margaret
Nichols, Elsie Nichols and Lucille Sheffield,
clerks; Hazel Blackburn, Evelyn Williams,
Mrs. 0. M. Taylor, Mrs. L. C. Clark, Mrs.
Helen Durant and Sarah Herring, inspectors;
Mrs. Zelda Brown, alternate; W. C. Goodson,
bailiff.
SECOND PRIMARY
The second primary, to be held on May 27,
will feature more than the probability of a
question as to who will serve as City
Commissioner for one year.
It's highly probable that there will be a
candidate question on the second primary
ballot. Even if no candidates are in the second
primary, there will be a balloting, anyhow.
Also on the.second primary ballot is the
question as to whether or not the people of
Port St. Joe want to grant the Commission
permission to allow exemptions or reductions
on ad valorem taxes for any new industry or
current industry which plans an expansion of,
its present facilities.
The tax question has been approved by
the State of Florida as an incentive to be used
by local, areas to attract new or expanded
industry and more jobs to an area, where the
area approves of such expansion.
The approval of the move doesn't
automatically give a new or expanding
industry tax breaks. It merely gives the
Commission the power to grant the tax cuts as
an incentive, if they feel the cut is fair and
necessary.

L4 41-Year-Old Hanlon Runs Boston Marathon


Port St. Joe's 41-year-old
James Hanlon became prob-
ably the first person from Gulf
County ever to enter the
Boston Marathon late last
month. Hanlon, who has been
running for the past tiwo years
entered the race and finished
in two hours, 52 minutes and 24
seconds.
That's two hours, 52 minutes
and 24 seconds to run 26 miles.
Hanlon received his official
statistics from the Marathon
operators this past week,
showing that of the 5,074 men


who qualified and entered the
race, Hanlon finished number
2,071. Hanlon did better in his
age bracket of 40 to 49. Of the
1,774 men in this category, he
came in number 207.
Running for a distance of 26
,miles requires a little some-
thing more than the ordinary
from a man even a man who
has prepared himself by get-
ting into shape. Immediately
after the race, while the
events were still fresh in his
memory, Hanlon put his im-
pressions down on paper.


Following is his journal of the
race, reflecting his problems
and impressions of the various
things which happened to him
along the way.
The journal is reprinted
here exactly as Hailon wrote
it.

before numbers are given out.

11:00 a.m. I put some
vaseline in places where need-
ed, used the restroom and
slowly ran to the starting line,
a half mile away. I could not


relax, .too cold.
11:30 a.m. At the starting
line, it was cold, some woman
put a jacket around me and
talked about the race. She said
her husband and a friend were
running, thanked her for the
use of the coat. She cheered
me on.
11:45 a.m. Started looking
for some place to line up. I
squeezed into place about 10
rows back. Listened to last
minute instructions. My main
thought was: I don't want to
fall, I've just got to stay a foot.


If nothing else happens just
stay up. I put my hands on the
person in front and put my
elbows out a little bit to give
me balance and some running
room.
The weather was cold,
around 47 degrees with a
slight tailwind not good run-
ning weather for me.

Why DOTDoesn't



Have Any Money


The County Commission has.
been hasseling the Department of
Transportation about re-surfacing
Highway 71 north of Cypress
SCreek. We're sure you will agree
that is a needed paving project if
there was ever a needed paving
project.
The DOT keeps coming back
with the old story "We don't have
the money and won't have it until
' 1985". Even when they had plenty
of money back before the decline in
the gasoline tax receipts, we heard
the same old story. Highway 71
needed re-surfacing back thentoo,
though not to the extent it does now.
The DOT has now told us, by
their actions, why they don't have
the money to re-surface Highway
71.
Just within the past few days,
the County Commission has learn-
ed the DOT has plans in the making
to re-surface the approaches to the
Highland View bridge. No matter
that the bridge itself needs work
more than the approaches do. No
matter that the present approaches
to the bridge are concrete and in
better condition than many of the
primary roads in this area. No
: matter that the state has already
promised to build a new high-rise
Bridge at Highland View within the
. next few years (before the present
concretee approaches could need
5 4e-surfacing.) No matter that we
3, have other needs which actually
need re-paving here in Port St. Joe




Stay In "Cat

We go along with the decision
of the County Commission to want
to stay in the "Cat-bird" seat in
keeping the majority of whatever
committee governs the handling of
' the future of the Dead Lakes.
Calhoun County came to town
last Tuesday wanting to change the
make-up of the committee which
governs the lakes, giving Calhoun
County an equal voice in the future
of the lakes.
It seems to be almost a cinch
there will be some major changes
: in determining the future of the
lakes within the next several
months. Since the lions' share of
the lakes and the major portion of
the economic impact of the lakes is
in Gulf County, we go along with
the Commission that Gulf County
: should have the majority of the
decision-makers in their own back
yard.


on state primary highways as well
as the now infamous Highway 71
north of Cypress Creek.
The Commission called all this
to the attention of DOT and
suggested they use the money to be
spent at the Highland View bridge
approaches, resurfacing Highway
71 inside the city limits of Port St.
Joe... or re-surfacing a portion of
Industrial Road which is a state-
maintained road ... or putting the
.surfacing on the worst part of
Highway 71 as far as it would go.
Any of these projects would
better apply the DOT's paving
money and better serve the people
of this part of Florida.
The DOT says, "No, we're
going to spend the money re-
surfacing the approach to Highland
View bridge, (no matter what you
want).
If this type thing happens all
over the state, and we have no
reason to believe it doesn't; then
it's easy to see why the DOT
doesn't have the money to put
where it is needed. They are too
busy spending precious paving
money in places where it is not
needed.
With decisions like this, how
does the DOT, the Governor or
anyone else at a state level expect
the people to willingly approve an
increase in the gasoline tax only to
have more money spent needless-
ly?




-Bird" Seat


We don't see where anybody
from Gulf County will make a
decision about the lakes which
would harm the future of Calhoun
County and vice versa. Still, we feel
the majority of the board should
have a prime interest in Gulf
County.

True, the water which flows
into the lakes comes from a river
which flows through Calhoun Coun-
ty. By the same token, if it were not
for the lakes and their acting as a
"brake" for all that water rushing
toward the ocean, Calhoun Coun-
ty's sizeable stream might just
-.ush off into a small creek in just a
short while.
Gulf County has a considerable
economic interest in the lakes and,
we feel we should protect that
interest for as long as we can any
way we can.


Oldest Civic Club In Port St. Joe



Rotary Club Marking 40th Year


Port St. Joe's Rotary Club
will mark its 40th year of
operation on May 20 of this
year. The Club was organized
and held its first meeting on
May 20, 1941, after being
organized by the Panama City
Rotary Club.
The anniversary this month
will mark the anniversary of
the oldest currently operating
civic club in Port St. Joe.'
George G. Tapper, one of
three charter members of the
club still active in its organi-
zation, outlined some of the
early history of the club for
the Rotarians last Thursday.
Tapper said B. S. Gordon,
former manager of Gulf Pow-
er Company and a member of
the Panama City club, first
came toPort St. Joe on March
2, 1941, making an effort to
organize a club here. He came
back two days later and met
with Dr. Albert Ward, J.
Lamar Miller and Basil E.
Kenney, Sr., asking for their
support in forming a club.
The matter was taken up
with the district governor at


that time, pointing out that
Port St. Joe had no men's civic
clubs operating at that time.
There had been a Lions' Club
two or three years earlier, but
it had folded for lack of
participation.
The first organizational
meeting of the club was held
on Friday, May 20, upstairs in
the old bank building, with Dr.
Albert Ward, Otto Anderson,
B. B. Conklin, Richard Porter,
Louis Enrich, M. P. Tomlin-
son, Robert Bellows, W. H.
Wellington, Ted Morris, J.
Lamar Miller, S. L. Barke,
George Tapper, Basil E. Ken-
ney and Kenneth Creech in
attendance.
Dr. Ward was named the
first president; Ted Morris,
vice president; J. Lamar
Miller, secretary; S. L. Barke,
treasurer and B. B. Conklin,
sergeant at arms.
The first board of directors
of the club were Dr. Albert
Ward, Ted Morris, J. Lamar
Miller, George Tapper, B. E.
Kenney, Otto Anderson and S.
L. Barke.


Over the years, the club has
been responsible for several
major projects, which have
left lasting marks on the
community.
During their years of opera-
tion, the club has sponsored
the operation of the Boy
Scouts here in Port St. Joe for
40 years. During its history,
the club has also sponsored a
Christmas parade annually
when bags of goodies were
prepared for all children who
would come see Santa Claus.
The clubl sold bonds, mostly to
its own members, to light the
baseball field. The city's first
paved tennis court, in the park
behind the bank building, was
built by the club. The annual
Charity Ball was organized
several years ago to provide
free dental treatment to all
children who needed it. This
source of funds is now used for
other philanthropic activities
each year.
Tapper said the club was
presented its charter on June
27, 1941. Since that time, the
local club has sponsored the


formation of new clubs in
Wewahitchka and Apalachi-
cola.
Three charter members re-
main with the club. They are:
Tapper, J. Lamar Miller and
M. P. Tomlinson.
Before Tapper started his
historical report, Pat McFar-
land, current Scoutmaster
gave the club a report on the
local Troop. McFarland said
the Troop was growing and
interest was building in Scout-
ing. He reported that probably


seven Scouts would make the
Star rank this year and1
possibly some Eagle Scout
would come out of the current
group.
McFarland said several of
the older Scouts will be taking
a 50 mile canoe trip in the next
few weeks, as the celebration
for the completion of merit
badge requirements.
Guest of the club Thursday
was Judge Larry Bodiford of
Panama City.

programs in Gulf County. The
Clinic is a private non-profit
mental health clinic which
depends upon the community
for its support.


Think of An Educated Man Who Never Heard of Shellcrackers


*.- I TOOK A FLYING trip to Atlanta
,fit Monday of last week for the first
check-up on my re-built leg and got a
glowing report from my doctor, even
though I have fudged a little bit on what
. he said I (Lould do for a while.
S Dr. Wells got me back in his inner
sanctorum, took x-rays, stroked his
Schi, let out the usual grunts and
uh-huh's and gave me a clean bill of
health.
S I thought he was trying to get the
job of doing his work over again when
he got me lup on the examining table. He
grabbed hold of my leg and twisted,
: yanked and turned it every which way,
most of which he had given me explicit
; instructions not to do. But it all held
together, so I guess it was all right.
He told me to get rid of one of my
crutches and get me a cane for around
the house walking in order to get more
exercise on the leg and get it to moving
more.
It moves so much more now than it
ever has I sometimes feel like I'm going
to kick it off when I go to take a step.
But, he says it needs to and will get to
moving more.


I looked at the x-rays and feel
better about the job he did on me. In all
those sophisticated tools and parts he
used, there were two pieces of baling
wire showing up in the film, so the job





ETAOIh





must be permanent.
After he got through examining me,
I fussed at him a little bit. I had planned
to have this work done in February so I
would be ready for the shelleracker
season, but his schedule couldn't fit me
in til mid-March. So, I told him I had
some important business with the
shellcrackers in season here in the
Panhandle and I needed to get at it.


He said, "What's a shellcracker?"
That's when I began to suspect my
doctor might not be as smart as he
should be to be doing the type surgery
he was doing.


Here's a man who can take a piece
of scrap iron, two pieces of baling wire,
a glob of teflon and a tube of super glue
and build a person a new hip and he
doesn't know what a shellcracker is.
I told him his necessary education
had been sadly neglected..
I must have cowed him with that
one, because he told me I could go
fishing.


And, I intend to do just that.
SAFETY IS A THING of the past.
Last week the motocycle riders con-
verged on Tallahassee to persuade the


Legislature to erase the law which
requires those riding motorcycles to
wear helmets. The motorcycle gangs
met in Tallahassee and protested the
law, calling for its repeal.
Some of the Legislators toyed with
the idea of releasing those 18 years of
age and above from the law, but I
suspect that after all the dust settles,
motorcycle riders will still be required
to wear their helmets.


Can't you see it now? A state
trooper stops a young man or lady
riding down the street on their
motorcycle and says, "Let me see your
ID!"
If the Legislature removes this
requirement from the law, they had
just as well give us all the same
opportunity for serious injury and take
off the speed limit, remove seat belts
from automobiles and forget the
catalytic converter.
We automobile drivers have the
right to drive our automobile unencum-
bered by these encumberances, too. Or,
maybe we could require seat belts, etc.,
for drivers 18 years of age and under.
I guess the thinking is that it
doesn't matter if us old duffers get
seriously injured or killed on the
highways from speeding, lack of
restraints or protection.
This kind of reasoning makes me
feel discriminated against!
General Motors is already taking
things into their own hands along these
lines. I saw in the paper the other day
where they are giving up trying to
develop their bag for crash protection


in automobiles.
That suits me fine, but I think the
Legislature should leave the seat belts,
the speed limits, the license age limit
and the motorcycle helmet laws alone.
They're such a mess to pick up 4
the highway when they don't have theI"
on.

SHOULD WE BEGIN taking up a
collection for the oil companies?
I see in the papers where oil
company profits are going down. Even
OPEC is worried and is considering
dropping their prices a might, to regain
some of the market their high prices
have alienated.
If things get really tough, we might
get some of our Gulf Coast fishermen to
donate them a few mullet so they can
have a fish fry in order to shore up their
sagging profits.
If we get to needing money around
here for some cause or other, we just
cook up some mullet and sell tickets.
That sounds like a good idea, because I
might make enough printing them
some fish fry tickets to buy me another
gallon or two of gasoline.

side of the road when passing,
running at about 6:00 min.
pace. The crowd was wall to
wall.
Four to six mile: I picked up
another two to three min. on
my time, I was running
strong, having taken water at
the fifth mile mark, around
here is where I saw my time
on a big clock. I think it was
around 32 min. I still had to
pick up my pace, but not too
fast, remember the hills, take
on water, watch my footing.
Crowd cheering.
Seven to twleve miles The
people were getting thicker all
the time, especially when going
through towns. People were
jumping in the race from all
sides, made it tougher to pass,
too many people at this point.
Noticing my Florida T-shirt,
people were yelling "Lets go
Florida, you can make it," I
felt good at this point.
Boston seems to be con-
tinuously hilly, I know the hills
were here but told myself that
it was no big deal. I ran the
toughest hills in the Columbus,
Georgia Marathon, this was
where I made my first mis-
take, I picked up my pace
again trying to gain back lost
time. A big clock at the ten
mile mark was reading 1'06",
still behind on my pace. This is
where I started to assess my
body, I wanted to be aware of
where I was hurting and how.
My calves seemed to lack
springiness, they were tight,
my hips were beginning to
hurt. My legs still felt strong
but feet beginning to burn.
Thirteen to sixteenth mile -
The crowd was a great
inspiration here, they took my
mind off being tired somewhat
around 13% miles, was passed
a girls college. Never seen so
many women in any one place
in my life, 4-5 deep, scream-
ing, cheering (this was the
place to quit if you had to). My
gloves started burning. I took
them off and gave them to a
little girl in a wheelchair
sitting beside the road. The
smile was big.
Sixteen to twenty one miles -
The hills started here, it was
here that the race seemed
toughest to me mentally. I
didn't feel real bad at this
time but I didn't feelTeal good
either. In a marathon you
have highs and lows, this was
one of the lows. There were
five hills and while they are
not particularly tough, they
are difficult because they
come in a hard part of the
race. I could tell the hills were
taking it out of me, downhill
was painful to me. My hips
and legs were hurting so. I try
to run the hills conservatively
hoping that I would have some
left. The crowds were really
getting thick. The encourage-
ment from the crowds made
me feel good. Many offered
water and ice. The crowd kept
my mind off my tiredness. I
reached to the top of Heart-
break Hill, tears came into my
eyes. It hurt so bad but I won
the famous hill.
Twenty-one miles After
Heartbreak Hill there were
five miles to go, I really
pushed myself here trying to
move up in the pack. Thinking
again about how hard I
trained I didn't want to have
anything left at the end of the
race. I wanted total effort. I
started downhill, things were
really getting crowded. Some
spots the path was only two to
three yards wide.
Twenty-two to twenty-four
miles I was running very
hard, probably harder than I
ran in the entire race up until
this point. I was steadily
moving up on the pack. The


spectators were waving their
arms and shouting, "come on,
you can make it." They were
reaching out to touch or hand
out ice water. Around the
twenty-four mile mark is
where I hit "the wall," the
wall of pain, they never tell
you about this when you send
in your money, that's because
you can't see it although you
know its there. Some runners
live in fear of it, .some live in
terror of it, most don't want to
talk about it. The is where the
body and mind begin to rebel.
The life-giving salts, potas-
sium and magnesium begin tu
abandon the body. The body
begins to dehydrate. It under-
goes a traumatic chemical
change and no 'amount of
training can avoid this. Each
runner is affected differently.
Some suffer from fatigue,
some dizziness, some ex-
perience blurred vision and
even depression. But they all
feel it, I did today. My body
telling .me to quit, my legs
hurting so bad, my feet
burning, my mind telling me
that I'vmecome so far, trained
so hard. I conquered the hill
now I can conquer the wall.
The weight of the wall was on
my body, I must go on. The
crowd was wonderful, cheer-
ing, doing all they could to
help. I turn to the crowd to
clap their out-stretched hands,
trying to take my mind off the
pain. I grab some ice ie to place
on my hurting hips, grabbing
icewater by the cup full to
pour my head.
Twenty-five mile mark to
finish With less than a mile to
go, my legs feel so heavy it's
all I can do to pick them up
and lay them down. Some
runners stop, some just quit.
The last mile is tough, its a big
struggle for me now. Seems
like I couldn't move anymore,
crowd was deep, 4-6 people
deep, shouting "go Florida,"
you can make it." I could bee
the Prudential building, so near
yet so far. Even though I knew
I was close to the finish it was
still a struggle with the pain,
almost unbearable. I wanted
to quit, passed a lot of people
some of which dropped out. To
me this is where the training is
paying off. About % mile from
the finish I could see,the clock.
I wanted so bad to finish under
three hours. So I reached
down inside and forced what I
had left out of me. The
challenge of any marathon is
to finish, my body hurting, my
mind still telling me to quit. I
think about 73 year Johnny
Kelly, the.wheelchair division
how hard it was for them and
if they finish and I didn't, I
would feel bad, so bad.
The people on the side still
cheering, still urging me on,
telling me not to quit. I wanted
just to finish now not caring
whether I finished under three
hours or not but just to finish. I
keep pushing, pushing toward
the finish, at last the clock. It
looks so big! II done it! Tears
starting again, I can't control
my emotions, it felt so good to
finish, to know that I ran with
the best, that I finished the
85th Boston Marathon and set
a PRat 2 hours, 52 minutes, 24
seconds. I had conquered the
"Heartbreak Hill," the
"Wall".


Marigolds outrank any
other flower in numbers of
seeds and transplants pur-
chased for our gardens, says
Dr. Benny Tjia, Floriculture
Specialist with the Florida
Cooperative Extension Serv-
ice. They are easy to start,
easy to care for and never
cease to bloom. There are tall
marigolds for bouquets as
well as short marigolds for
border plantings. Medium-
sized marigolds fill in the gap.
There are marigolds ideal
for garden containers and
some which can be stunning
hanging baskets. There are
single-flowered marigolds,
orange marigolds and bi-
colored bloomers. The most
popular are the gold and
yellow varieties.
Marigolds are big business
for seedsmen, and many dol-
lars of research have gone into
producing 'exciting new
varieties to tempt the horti-
cultural palette of marigold
enthusiasts. As a result, the
marigold gets better every
year.
Yellow and bicolors are now
contending for first place in
marigold sales. Tiny eight to
ten inch varieties have been
updated to produce larger
blooms, with the same tiny
habit. When the television
program, Victory Garden,
-looked at marigolds, they
focused on the recent 'Boy'
series, bred for dwarf heights
with blooms reaching up to
two inches in diameter.
Large three-inch bloomscan
be found in varieties scarcely
over a foot in height. The
semi-dwarf marigold of this
group now has earlier blooms,
and very compacted petals for
a bouquet of exciting yellow
color. 'Sunshot', available for
1981 as a started plant, far
out-performs its predecessors,
says Tjia.
Bicolor single marigolds are
particularly attractive in con-
tainers. The most outstanding
bicolors offer two-toned in-.


Cub Scouts Looking

'for New Recruits


Cub Pack 47 in Port St. Joe
has announced the Spring
registration for all boys who
want to join in the fun of Cub
Scouting. Registration for Cub
Scouts will be held on Satur-

tense contrasts of red and
yellow or red and gold on each
petal. 'Spinwheel', new for
1981 from started plants,
vividly contrasts bright red
with clear yellow stripes.
Marigold breeder achieve-
ments have not been over-
looked by awards. In the past
three years new marigolds,
'Queen Bee,' 'Queen Sophia'
and Janie have picked up
medals from American and
Europe. Merits which pro-
moted recognition for these
beauties include early flower-
ing, resistance to heat stress
and uniqueness of form and
color.
If the range of marigolds is
not dizzying enough in its
continued change and vari-
ation, there are even selec-
tions of unique color and shape
within the popular double
category. Crested marigolds
have two distinct types of
petals. Center petals of crest-
ed types, such as the 1981
introduction, 'Glowing Em-
ber,' are tightly compacted.
They form the raised crown of
this bicolor, which is then
surrounded by flattened guard
petals with identical color
conformation.
True marigold fanciers find
a myriad of uses for these
garden stalwarts. The debate
still rages about the use of
marigolds to repel garden
insects. While that issue is an
open question, there is no
mistaking the fact that insects
do not seem to be attracted to
the flowers and leaves of
members of the marigold
family. Fewer diseases like-
wise trouble a marigold, says
Tjia.
Genetic attention to this
durable flower has yet to give
us a sweetly scented variety.
Over the years the pungent
aroma of marigolds has been
reduced to a pleasant mini-
mum. While scentless mari-
golds satisfy many, qther
gardeners enjoy the strong
aroma of certain species.
According to Tjia, the mari-

I


Accepts $33,000 Bid of Rowe Drilling Co.




Hires Firm to Drill Well


The City Commission
agreed to go ahead and accept
.an offer by Rowe Drilling
:Company of Tallahassee to
*re-drill the city's water well
w.ich collapsed deep inside
:tbe casing about a month ago.
: The well, one of two wells
:formerly used by St. Joe
iPaper Company to furnish -
:water to the mill, was being
:used, along with two other
wells to furnish the City's
:water supply until it collapsed
deep underground.
The Florida Board of Water
IManagement engineers has
suarmised that the collapse
:was caused by the lowering
:water table which caused an
underground clay water pock-
et to collapse, shutting off the
water supply to the pump.
The collapse caused a dis-
,turbance in a second, shallow
*well, which also took it out of
'service, leaving only one deep
'well on the Water Treatment
,Plant site, operating. The City
bbeen supplementing this
ce with water from the
_t. Joe Paper Company fresh
:water canal since the cave-
:ins.
Engineers have said the


well will have to be re-drilled,
going deeper into lime rock
and creating a new water
pocket. The project will also
include placing a new casing
inside the present casing to
put the well deeper.
Rowe has offered to do the
job for $33,000.
Attempts to get other bids
on the project have proved
futile. Water Management en-
gineers say the price given by
Rowe is a fair price.
Since the problem hadn't
shown up until after the
City's budget was made, there
is no money in the current
budget to pay for the job. The
Commission decided Tuesday
night to pay for the project
with depreciation funds in the
water system account.
FIREWORKS
Port St. Joe will have a
fireworks display on July 4
this year.
The Commission included
some funds in the new budget
to purchase a fireworks dis-
play package this year and the
Commission instructed Clerk'
Alden Farris to make contact
with suppliers of the displays

Ribbons Show They Car


Joe High School and you are
bound to see some. They are
not celebrating a late St.
Patrick's Day. The ribbons
are their way of saying that
they care and are very much
concerned about the youths
who are being needlessly
murdered i'' Atlanta. The
green ribbon idea was adopted
from an Atlanta lady, and
Port St. Joe Students wanted
to show that they cared about
those young people also.
Mrs. Maxine Gant and Mrs.
Susie Cooper are sharing their
ribbons with any one else who
cares enough to wear one. It is
beingg asked that persons with
ribbons wear them daily. The
ribbon is to be worn over the
heart as an upside down "V",
when the crimes have been
solved or some worthwhile
solution has been reached,
then the. wearer is asked to
turn the ribbon upright to
show a victorious solution to
crimes which never should
have been committed in the
first place.

club, held a successful road
block a week ago in which the
proceeds were used to aid the

REAGAN'S HIGHWAY PROGRAM


In an effort to balance the
budget, President Reagan has
proposed numerous changes in
federal aid programs to our
highway system. Chief among
them is the realignment of the
financial partnership of the
federal, state and local govern-
ments for many major road
and safety programs.
Legislation proposed in the
waning days of the Carter ad-
ministration authorized
highway spending averaging
around $11 billion a year
through fiscal 1986, according
to the,Transportation Depart-
ment. In comparison, Presi-
dent Reagan has recommended
legislation authorizing about
$9 billion a year.
Following are the major
features of the Reagan Admin-
istration's federal highway aid
program,
f Ends funds in fiscal 1984
for many urban and rural road
arid safety programs and drops
funds in fiscal 1982 to enforce
the 55 m.p.h. speed limit.
---Allows the Transporta-
tion Secretary to drop some
proposed Interstate segments,
leaving gaps to be financed by
non-federal sources or left un-
done.
Encourages timely com-
pletion of the Interstate by
tightening eligibility for con-
struction money, requiring
some work such as noise con-
trol features and landscaping
to compete under other pro-
grams for funding.
Increases federal funds
for Interstate repairs from $275
million in fiscal 1982 to $2.7


billion in fiscal 1987 and in-
creases the federal share from
75W% to 90%.
Extends the Highway
Trust Fund, which finances
federal highway programs,
through fiscal 1990. Highway
user taxes would be extended
'through fiscal 1989 without
change.
The underlying principle of
the highway program has tradi-
' tionally been a federal-state-
local partnership to build safe
roads. The roads are con-
sidered to be in the national in-
terest because they help
farmers to haul produce to
-market, manufacturers to ship
goods, workers to get to jobs,
citizens to travel and com-
munities to develop. While the
Reagan Administration retains
the financial partnership for
Interstate and some other
major projects, the administra-
tion contends that some roads
traditionally benefiting from
federal funds have a low na-
tional priority and should be a
local responsibility.

Saturday morning, at 8:30
a.m., runners from through-
out Northwest Florida will
meet at the Constitution Mon-
ument Park here in Port St.
Joe to compete in two running
events which are scheduled
for that day. The first race is a
one mile fun run which starts
at 9:00 a.m. It will be followed
by a 10,000 meter run, a lung
distance foot race along 6.2
miles of the city's residential
streets.
Both events are being
hosted by the St. Joseph Bay
Road Runners and are spon-
sored by St. Joe Auto Parts,
the local NAPA auto parts
jobber. The local business is
enjoying its 25th year of
operation in Port St. Joe and
will be celebrating during the
next several weeks beginning
with the "Sivler Anniversary
Run" scheduled for Saturday.
and continuing through the
month of June.
Saturday's events will begin
with registration for both the
one mile and 10,000 meter runs
at 8:30 a.m. The one mile run


will begin at 9:00 and will be
limited to runners twelve
years of age or younger. They
will follow a course which will
circle the park under careful
traffic control.
The 10,000 meter run will get
under way at 10:00 a.m. and
wind its way through the city,
eventually ending at the park
where it started, following
major sections of Allen Mem-
orial Way, Palm Blvd.,.2oth
Street, Marvin Avenue, Wood-
ward Avenue, 16th Street, and
Monument Avenue as well as
smaller sections of other city
streets. In the interest of
safety, the local Road Run-
ners Club would like to ask
area drivers to be especially
cautious in these areas be-
tween 9:00-11:00 a.m. this
Saturday.
As is the case with any
running event scheduled dur-
ing this time of the year, heat
will prove to play an impor-
tant factor in the results of
Saturday's race. In order to
combat the affect of heat on
the contestants, aid stations

I Warm Weather will Give Grass Growing A Boost


by
RoyLeeCarter
County Extenttio Director
Lawn care is a year round
job in Florida. however, as
warm weather approaches the
growth rate of the grass
increases which means mow-
ing frequently also increases.
Mowing is an essential part of
lawncare. The height to which
the lawn is cut and how often
' it is cut are important to the
health of the grass.
'The height to which a lawn
should be mowed depends on
S the type of grass, its growth
habit and texture. Pensacola
and Paraguayan bahiagrasb


should be cut from three to
four inches high while Argen-
tine bahia grass is best cut
from two to three inches high.
Both carpetgrass and centi-
pede grass can be maintained
from one and half to two
inches high. St. Augustine
cultivars vary in the proper
cutting height. Cutting height
from Roselawn and common
is to three to four inches, for
Bitterblue, scotts 1081, and
Flotatam is two to three
inches, while dwarf Floratine
may be cut as low as one to
two inches, meyer one to two
inches and Emerland half to
one inch. Common bermuda-


grasses can be mowed half to
one inch while the hybrids
bermudagrasses can be clip-
ped as low as one third of an
inch.

The current cutting height is
important to the health of your
lawn. The leaves must pro-
duce enough food to allow the
plant to survive and grow. If
two much of the leaves are
removed the grass will starve
and your sod will become thin,
look bad and be more suscept-
ible to the invasion by weed
and pests. Mowing too high
causes the buildup of thatch (a
spongy layer of plant debris)


and produces a ragged looking
lawn.

The frequency of mowing is
dependent on the type of
lawngrass, the maintenance
program and the weather.

Warm weather and heavy
fertilization will increase the
growth ralc of grasses, as a
result they will need to be
mowed inmre often. Your lawn
should be cut frequently
enough that no more than one
third of an inch of the leaf
surface is removed at a time.
Carpetgrass and centipede-
grass may not need to be cut

more often than once every
ten to fourteen days while
hybrid bermuda grasses may


need to be cut every three
days. Most lawngrasses fit
.!ithin this range. The impor-


tant thing to remember is
leave twice as much leaf
surface as you remove at any
single mowing. Or, if you want
to maintain your lawn at two
inches cut your grass when it
is three inches high.
It is important to follow
good mowing practices. Keep
your lawnmower sharp and
clean. Dull blades will tear the
leaves giving an uneven rag-
ged appearance and often
cause the lawn to look gray or


brown. Cutting grass when it s
wet clogs the mower and often
cause an uneven cut.
Remember, proper mowing
is one of the most important
factors contributing to an
attractive lawn, proper mow-
ing is one of the most
important factors contribut-
ing to an attractive lawn,
proper mowing means that the
grass is cut at the optimum
height and often enough to
keep it healthy and attractive.
