FennelH, Horton In Lead

Alton Fennell and David Horton, both seeking office in
the City of Port St. Joe for the first time, will run it off on
Sec n d Prim ary Is Tuesday, May 26, after being the two top vote getters in
I the first round elections Tuesday.
I I d for a 2 Horton, an employee of Apalachicola Northern
Scheduled for M ay 6 Railroad, was the top vote getter in the. field of three
candidates, polling 498 votes Tuesday.
Fennell edged out Nathan Peters, Jr., to be Horton's
opposition in the second primary of voting later in the
month. Fennell polled 380 votes and Peters had 310 ballots
cast in his favor.
The voting stated off sluggishlyon Tuesday after a
very quiet campaign. But, by noon, there had been 500
votes cast and the electors were on their way toward
casting a very respectable vote here in the city.
Three other candidates were up for election to three
posts on the Commission board Tuesday, but neither of the
three candidates had any opposition, and so went into
office unopposed.
The three candidates were Mayor-Commissioner
Frank Pate and Commissioner Wesley R. Ramsey,
seeking re-election and Billy Fleming, who had qualified
to seek election in the post being vacated by
Commissioner Tomn S. Coldewey, the veteran on the
Board.
After the election was over Tuesday and the ballots
tallied, Peters said, "The people have spoke. It was a
good voter turn-out to express the wishes of the people."
Horton said, "I have my work cut out for me in the next
ALTONFENNELL DAVID HORTON', two weeks." Fennell was unavailable for comment.


Mrs. Al Ray signs up to vote in Tuesday's city election
as clerks Margaret Nichols and Helen Durant check out


her eligibility to vote.

begin taking steps toward the
purchase of several submerg-
ed lots west of Highway 98 at
Highland View. The property
in question is now mostly
under water.
The County Commission
was asked by George G.
Tapper several months ago to
try to gain title to the
submerged land to be used in
the creation of a deep water
port and seafood processing
facility here in Port St. Joe.
The property would be used
mostly as a spoil area to place

management plan presented
by the Calhoun County Com-
mission, electing instead to
continue with the present
management -board rather
than create a new one equally
divided with representation
from both counties.
The position of the Gulf
County Board is that most of
the Dead Lakes, the dam and
the draw down structure are


assistant Tommy Pitts to try
and acquire the property.
Rish remarked, "I hope you
have better luck than we have
already had." Rish said some
of the property owners are
holding out on sale of the
submerged land to the county.
The Board agreed with
Branch's suggestion and in-
structed Rish and Pitts to
begin trying to acquire the
property.
SPECIAL PROGRAMS
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man, concerned over the
pull-out of the federal govern-
ment in several social pro-
grams in the next few weeks
or months, suggested that the
County also drop their support
of any program which loses its
federal funding.
Many programs operating
here in the county are sup-
ported mainly by federal
funds and to a lesser extent
with county money.
Gortman advised the Com-
mission, ."There is no way we
could finance any one of the
programs now in operation,
much less all of them with our
present financial base". The
Commissioner then suggested
that the county take the step of

Man Charged


Peddling Pills

Charges of possession of amphetamines were made
against Johnny Gavin, age 24, of Tallahassee, by the Gulf
County Sheriff's Department this week.
According to Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy, Deputies
James Mock and Phil McLeod arrested Gavin Monday at
about 2:30 p.m., after it was reported he was trying to sell
drugs on the beach. A large quantity of what appeared to be
"Black Beauties", "Yellow Jackets (amphetamines) and
Quaaludes were confiscated in the arrest. Gavin was
reportedly trying to sell the pills for $2.50 each. He had a total
of 1,060 pills, valued at $2,650, in his possession.
Gavin was arraigned Tuesday before Judge David
Taunton, who set bond at $10,000..
Later, it was found out by the Sheriff's Department that
Gavin also had two warrants outstanding against him by
Leon County for failing to appear in court.

Rish told the Commission
Tuesday, "There are many
people who live on the lakes
who don't want the dam
're4i ovd."' He said, "'They
have paid a lot of money for
waterfront property and they
want to maintain that status."'
NEW COMMITTEE
The Board received in-
formation, also, at the
Tuesday meeting that Gov-
ernor Bob Grqham is in the
process of naming a new
Dead Lakes Water Man-
agement Committee to
take the place of the now
inactive board which has
served in name only for the
past several years.
None of the Commission
members knew who was-
being considered for mem-
bership on the governing
group by the Governor.
Inactivity by the present
management commission is
one pf the main instigators of
the present move to. turn the
lakes and their control over to
the County Commission. The
management commission was
originally formed to manage
the financial matters of the


lakes which sold fishing per-
mits to finance construction of
the dam and draw down
facility.
The County Commission,
particularly Commissioners
Doug Birmingham and Jim-
my Gortman, feel the dam is
responsible for the prolifera-
tion of water weeds in the
lakes and a deterioration in
the fish population, which they
claim is less now than it was
before the dam was built.
Birmingham said "Records
show impounded waters have
increased fishing for the first
two or three years of impound-
ment, then it goes down from
that point on."
The Commission seems to
be taking a "wait and see"
attitude toward the appoint-
ment of a new Dead Lakes
Water Management Commis-
sion, but their trip to Talla-
hassee this week will put them
in the thick of the fray to kill
the local bill now before the
Legislature to give control of
the waters over to a comnmit-
tee made up equally of mem-
bers of the Gulf and Calhoun
County Commissions.

to it, the


only cause for the unrest in Ireland
is hate. It isn't a matter of freedom,
even though the Irish are using that
400-year-old cause of ancient Ire-
land to justify their unrest and
fighting.
Watching 20-20 the other night,
reading the history of the Irish in
National Geographic this month
and reading the reports in the
papers makes us believe the entire
cause of their problem is based
solely upon hate hate of one
religious dogma over another.
Somebody in Ireland needs to
inspect their religious beliefs.
Things aren't likely to get
better in Ireland because of Sands'
death. They can only get worse. It
can only get worse because the
problem is a matter of neighbor
fighting neighbor. Even the chil-
dren are taught to hate their
neighbor just because he believes
differently about some things. The
Irish are destirted, to continue to
bleed as long as this situation
continues.
And as long as people like
Bobby Sands continue to encourage
that hate, the reports out of Ireland
will continue to be bad.
Bobby Sands did his people a
dis-service, in our opinion.

crimes are on a constant rise 111 our
country. We can see no relief from
;_such crimes in sight in the near
future unless some harsh measures
are taken against those who
perform such acts.
Even though he is a proven
rapist, we cannot help but feel
sorry for Andrews, that he should
be sentenced to die, but we can not
help but also grieve for the parents
of that little eight-year-old girl.
They must be living in torment
over the matter.


People like Andrews running
loose in our midst causes us to fear
for all small children who are out
playing, having a good time,
oblivious of the danger which they
might. fre if these people are
allowed to continue to run loose.'
If ddonly Andrews had commit-
ted such a crime in this decade, we
might feel more lenient about his
future. But there are too many
Andrews' committing the same
crime in our land of the free.
According to the same editorial
four other such cases have gone to
the state Supreme Court. Three of
the death sentences have been
overturned, committing the defen-
dants to jail for at least 25 years to
life. The other case is still pending
before the high court.
In all likelihood, Andrews' case
will wind up before the Supreme
Court and he will probably have his
death sentence commuted to 25
years to life.
Regardless, Judge McClure
has startled him and others who
may try to do this same thing in the
future.


Watching the World Go By


Law enforcement officers
(County, State and Federal)
are on the front lines every
day when they report for duty.
Remember, in previous
wars the front was where
enemy forces were locked in
deadly combat. The front was
where men killed each other
Today in America two
enemy forces are locked in
deadly combat-the army of
criminals and law enforce-
ment officers. Yes, it is war
and the front may be a lone
criminal on the highway and a
lone officer as he approaches
the criminal for a traffic
violation. Too often the
criminal drives away leaving
the officer dead by the high-
way.
Officers are defenders of the
people and the nation as
surely as the men of the
military in time of war or
peace. But law enforcement
officers often face their en-
emies without the benefit of a
military machine or enough
fellow officers to cope with the
enemies.
In recent years America has
fought some wars which the
military was not allowed to
win. The nation was justly
indignant. But this same na-
tion is now forcing law en-
forcement officers to fight a
war but will not allow them to
win it.
Officers apprehend the
criminal but he is on the
streets again before the
officer can finish filling out his
reports.
Officers go to court with a
prepared case but the case is
blown to bits in plea bargain-
ing.
America has dressed her
law enforcement officers in
"straight jackets," "hand-
cuffs," and enough regula-
tions and restraints to render
them largely ineffective in the
war they are supposed to win.
No wonder the crime rate
continues to rise at an alarm-
ing rate year after year.;'
Officers could stop riots if
allowed to do so. But the
officers are not to provoke the
rioters. They are expected to
"supervise" the carnage of
rioting, looting, theft, burning
and murder. Positive action
necessary to stop the riots is
quickly branded as "police
brutality" or "over reaction
by officers" and the carnage
rolls on.
Of course there are some
rotten apples among law
enforcement officers but there
are rotten apples in every
other field of work in the
nation.
No other profession in the
nation is so disparaged as
officers of the law. The people
they protect and defend do not
properly appreciate them.
The nation allows radicals to
ridicule and abuse them. They
are underpaid and over-
worked.
It is high time that our
society allow our officers to


win the war they are fighting
FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS.

turn them off for this reason
also.

Comic Strip Cat "Garfield", Not li Like Any of Our Feline Friends


-- AM I MISSING something?
I must be. The funny pages here
recently have added a comic strip
entitled, "Garfield", all about a cat.
I hadn't really been able to get
interested in the strip, even though I
have a cat who has a disposition and a
dmind of his own and gives me a few
anxious hours. But "Garfield" isn't at
all like my cat and I am supposing the
species all do things alike on occasion.
At any rate, the strip hasn't caught
on with me as yet.
The other day, last Thursday I
think it was, the Tallahassee Democrat,
which carries "Garfield" came out
with a full page feature on "Garfield"
in its features section, telling all about
how the country is raging for "Gar-
field". According to the article, one
paper quit running the strip (presum-
ably because the editors felt like I do
about it) and the paper was supposedly
deluged with letters and calls wanting
the strip back.
But then, I like "Barney Miller" on
TV and it's being taken off because the


networks seem to be getting a lot of
,negative reaction about the show-

nothing like "Garfield".
Houdini haunts the same places all
the time. He tries to get up in the
window to sun, he tries to get up in the
middle of our bed when we're not in it to
take advantage of the warm and .,oft
place to sleep. Houdini can walk all
across the room and never touch the
floor and he knows where his food is
kept and what color the package is.

THE DOLLAR IS on the way to
respectability again.
From what I read in the papers, the
dollar is climbing in value against other
currencies of the world and is now at its
highest level in three and a half years.


The piece I read in the paper didn't
explain the reason wfiy, but if we have
, only our experience to draw upon, we
would have to draw the conclusion that
other currencies are falling in value.
The dollar I have in my pocket right
now won't buy what it did three and a
half years ago, or last year, or even last
month.
All of this tells me the currencies of
the rest of the world are beginning to go
the way of the dollar.
What the dollar does overseas is
almost immaterial to me. What I would
like to see is for the dollar to rise in
value here in the United States.
That happening would be a subject
for front page news, and not just some
inside page short filler.

WHO'S WINNING the Senate Pres-

Last week the papers said W. D.

next Dempsey Barron's candidate, Sen.
Curtis Peterson had the nomination
sewed up.
Talking about cats earlier, Demp-
sey and W. D. used to be tighter than a

night, now they are more like two tom
cats vying for one female cat on a

And the noise is just about as bad.

Board Wants to Buy Land


(Continued from Page 1)
gram the federal government
drops.
Gortman's suggestion met
with unanimous approval by
the Commission.
ENCROACHMENT
Commissioner Billy Branch
asked the Commission to
approve instructions to attor-
ney William J. Rish to write a
letter to a property ownier
near the Dead Lakes bridge
whose mobile home encroach-
es on county property by some
three to five feet and instruct
them to move back off the
county property.
f Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man first made the suggestion
that the building inspector,
Dewayne Manuel, be instruct-
ed to inspect the county
property for encroachment all
over the county, but Branch
felt this would be too much of a
job, when the Commission was
concerned with the one en-
croachment at present. "We
have already determined by
measurement this one viola-
tion and we should act on it",
Branch said.
The Board agreed to
Branch's suggestion and also
decided to survey the property
in question to make certain
before they took any legal


action.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other action, the Com-
mission:
-Agreed to survey Duck
Avenue in Howard Creek to
see where the road right of
way was.
-Agreed to increase the
budget of Property Appraiser
Joyce Williams by $6,451.00
taking the money out of the
Capital Outlay fund.
-Received a letter from the
Department of Transportation
saying the speed limit at St.
*Joe Beach as it is presently


specified is adequate for the
traffic on the highway.
-Agreed to ask Mexico
Beach to stop laying water
lines into St. Joe Beach until a
feasibility study is finished for
a water system for that area.

tal after suffering a mild

they not know any, better! The
i981 senior girls are now 2-0,
as they won last year also as.
juniors. Everyone agreed
after it was all over that we'll
leave that "part of life" to our
male friends! Final score of
the game was seniors 16,
juniors 0. Our 1981 Powder
Puff King was Eugene Raf-
field. Congratulations


Eugene!

mistakes, for we all know
that is inevitable. But I hope
the weekly readers were
somewhat enlightened by our
school projects and news. A
special thanks to Mrs.

support and to The Star for


making this space in our

enjoyed it! Until next time...

Budget Background
Since coming to office,
President Reagan has focused
is attention and energy on
restoring our nation's economy
through reducing the growth of
federal expenditures and cut-.
ting back on taxes. Last week
Congress began the process of
debating the budget issue and
adopting the first concurrent
budget resolution. The first
concurrent budget resolution is
only one step in a process that
takes our government almost
10 to 12 months to complete..It
is by far the most important
work performed by Congress
during the legislative year. It is
even more significant this year
as both Congress and President
Reagan strive to change the
course of the federal govern-
ment. Let me now take this
time to briefly explain our na-
tion's very complicated budget.
process. '
Under the Constitution, the*
-President must submit the
federal budget to Congress
within fifteen days after the'
body reconvenes. As you may
recall, it was President'Carter
who submitted the original
Fiscal Year 1982 budget to
,'Congress in January of this
year.
Once Congress receives the
President's budget,,the Budget
Committee, the authorizing
committees and the appropria-
tions committees review the
estimates. in budget authority
and outlays proposed under
the President's budget. Budget
authority refers to authoriza-
tion for agencies to contract
spending during a particular
fiscal year. Outlays cover the
funds actually to be expended
in the fiscal year, 'including ex-
penditures to cover spending
contracted for in previous
years.
While the various commit-
tees are examining the budget,
the President updates his
budget estimates and submits
them to Congress by April
10th. Thus, President Reagan
resubmitted the Carter budget
with spending reductions of
approximately $48 billion
dollars.
The first concurrent budget
resolution sets targets for
federal expenditures in the up-
coming fiscal year, provides
for supplements and recissions
for the 1981 Fiscal Year line
budget items and instructs the
authorizing committees to
reconcile the differences of
their authorization levels with
those enacted under the first
concurrent budget resolution.


After Congress has
deliberated and adopted the
first concurrent budget resolu-
tion it begins working on the
separate appropriation bills
which come before the House
and Senate during the summer
and into the early fall. Con-
gress must complete business
on all bills providing new
budget authority seven days
after Labor Day and adopt the
second concurrent, budget
resolution by September 15th.
In addition, it must complete
action on any reconciliation
bill or resolution by September
25th so that budget totals for
enacted legislation conform
with ceilings established in the
second concurrent budget
resolution. Fiscal Year 1982
begins on October 1, 1981.
As you can see, this is pretty
complicated business.
However, the bottom line and
the responsibility of Congress
during the historic 97th'session
is to reduce federal expen-
ditures significantly by suppor-
ting President Reagan in his. ef-
forts to reduce the size of big
government.

Beef Brisket and Sauce
This week Nancy selected a
recipe by-Mrs. Ray -Roherts,
wife of the former Represen-
tative from Texas.
4 pound brisket
onion salt
garlic salt
liquid smoke
thin onion slices
thin lemon slices
Sauce:
1 cup catsup
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 cups water
dash of Tabasco
Season brisket by rubbing into
it onion salt, garlic salt and a
generous portion of liquid
smoke. Wrap in foil and bake
at 3000 for 4V2 hours or until
tender. Remove meat to
shallow pan and drain juice.

Place onion and lemon slices
on meat and broil 5 to 10
minutes until browned. Corn-
bine sauce ingredients and
heat. Pour hot sauce over meat
and put in 300* oven for 45
minutes, basting every 15
minutes. Pour off sauce and
reserve. Wrap cooled meat in
foil and chill. Slice thinly,
rewrap in foil and heat 30
minutes to serve. Heat and
serve sauce separately. May be

' "The best player is the guy
who works hardest."
Williams, who is also known
in the Port St. Joe area as the
coach of the Jacksonville
University-team which went to
the national finals on the
shooting of Artis Gilmore,
gave several examples of
players he has known and
coached, who worked hard to
become outstanding perform-
ers.
Williams said that even
Gilmore, with his great natur-
al ability and height, was one
of the hardest working players
he had ever seen. "When
things didn't go as they
should, he didn't try to blame
someone else, he took the
blame himself and said, 'I
'need to work a little harder' ".
Williams said it is the
natural thing for everyone to
look for somebody to blame
when the going gets tough. We
always look for someone else
-to blame; however. None of us
likes criticism. Williams said
that while he never saw
anybody go out and deliber-
ately try to lose a game, it is
just as rare that anyone will


ace, Most
-Star photo


personally take the blame for
losing..
"Everyone can't be an Artis
Gilmore, but everyone can
hustle and do his best, making
up for what he lacks natur-
ally", the speaker concluded.
Coach Jim Belin, who
coached this year's Shark
team to the state champion-
ship in, Class AA, told his
team, "Whatever you do in
life, I hope you leave your
mark as well as you did here.
I'm proud of you."
All members of the team
were presented with a gold
jersey with their playing
number on it, as a memento of
their having won the state
championship in March of this
year.
During the season, the
Sharks ran up a 30-1 record;
won the Christmas classic
tournament; were District,
Regional)Sectional and State.
chaYnpions. The Sharks one
loss came at the hands of
Wakulla in the Gulf Coast
Conference finals, in which
the War Eagles defeated the
Sharks by one point at the
buzzer on a fluke play.


Livingston (Ala.) Univer-
sity has long enjoyed the Port
St. Joe, connection with its
baseball program. The Tigers
have had at least one player
from Port St. Joe since 1972.
This year was no exception.
Heading this year's list of
St. Joe alumni is senior
pitcher Keef Pettis. Pettis
struggled early this season but
finally settled down with a 6-6
won-lost worksheet and a 3.79
earned-run-average. These
figures are not indicative of
the kind of career this young
man had at Livingston Univer-
sity. He broke all sorts of
records, not only at LU, but in
the Gulf South Conference and
the NCAA record book also.
In career records, he owns
LU, GSC, and NCAA marks
for 52 games started, 65
appearances, and 361 hits
allowed. He holds LU and GSC
records for complete games,
28; innings pitched,
376; and wins, 30. He-holds
,.:school marks in strikeouts,
227; and shutououts, 4.
His seasonal marks include
innings pitched, 115 (both LU
and GSC) in 1979, games
started, 16 (LU) in 1979, and
consecutive and scoreless
innings, 22 and two-thirds
(LU) in 1979.
Included in his single game
records are school and GSC
marks for consecutive bats-
men retired, 28 in 1979, innings
pitched, 12 in 1979, and con-
secutive scoreless innings, 12
in 1979. He earned his fourth
letter in basketball this spring
at Livingston.
Also from Port St. Joe were
Raymond Davis, and Duane
McFarland, a pair of soph-
more outfielders, both of
whom earned their second
letters this spring.
Davis hit .288 on the season
with 23 rbi's. He had nine
doubles, two triples and one
homer. McFarland hit .236
with seven doubles, one triple,.
and three homers. He also
drove in 18 runs.
-The Tigers finished the 1981
campaign with a 32-28 overall
mark and a third place finish
in the Gulf South Conference.

Butterick







Meter Race


"To win today, someone will
have to run under 34 minutes.
Dave has a 33:15, and he's in
good shape. It's going to be a
fast race."
That pre-race prediction
became a reality Saturday
morning as David Butterick
led a talented field of 91
ameteur athletes around the
10,000 meter course of the St.
Joe Auto Parts Silver Anni-
versary Run here in Port St.
Joe. The 22 year old resident
of Panama City crossed the
finish line almost a quarter-
mile ahead of the pack with a
course-blistering time of
33:29, only fourteen seconds
off his personal best for the 6.2
mile distance.
Butterick shared the lead
with several other runners as
they paced the first two miles
of the. race, but as they
approached the water station
at two and one quarter miles
he began to establish his lead.
As he passed the three mile
marker on Marvin Avenue
and turned onto 20th Street,
* Butterick glanced back over
his shoulder only, find himself
alone, running a pace which
kept him well ahead of the
field all the way to the finish.
Kenny i Johnson, 16, from
Lynn Haven, who shared the
lead during much of the first
two miles of the race finished
second with a time of 34
minutes. 40 seconds. He was
only 11 seconds ahead of the
third place finisher, James
S Dickson, a 37 year old resident
S of Chattahoochee.
James Hanlon, the first
local runner to cross the line
37 minutes, 20 seconds. "It
was tough," James said.
"There were some really fast
runners here today". In all,
13 runners (14 percent of the
field) finished in less than 40
minutes.
Donna Duty of Vernon
captured the women's division
with more than a three minute
lead over her nearest challen-
ger, clocking a time of 41
minutes, 41 seconds. Evelyn
Petelos of Panama City fin-
ishe4 second with a time of 44
minutes, 59 second, only 15
seconds ahead of Mary Jane
Funk of Tallahassee who
finished third.
The- largest round of ap-
plause came, however, when
Steve Smith, the 15 year old
Panama City runner crossed
the finish line to take 87th
place. Steve finished in 66
minutes and 46 seconds de-
spite the fact that he suffers
from muscular dystrophy. His
slow, steady pace won him no
trophy; but he won the
respect, admiration, and
applause of all those who
competed with him, and all of
those who watched him run.
During the awards cere-

pose." Joseph Joubert

stage the Second Annual 5,000
Meter Run on the final day of.
competition for the Ling Fish-
ing Tournament. The run is
being sponsored by the El
Governor Motel, and will be
this Saturday, May 16.
Last year's run was held on

experience the local club
decided to move the starting
time up one hour to 8 o'clock

also to move the run off the
asphalt and down .onto the
beach sand. This will provide
a unique setting for a course in
this part of the state. The
nearest beach run now is in
Jacksonville Beach.
Registration will begin at
7:00 a.m. C.S.T. and continue
up until race time, 8:00 a.m.
Tables will be set up at the
pier on 37th Street to accom-
modate registration. Please
register early. Entry fee is
$3.50.
Awards will include troph-
ies, ribbons, T-shirts and
refreshments. Trophies will
be awarded to the first three
male and first three female
winners. Ribbons will go to
first through sixth place age
group winners (120). One-


hundred and fifty super
T-shirts (full color both sides)
will go the the first 150
finishers. Water, gatorade and
lemonade will be available at
the finish line, next to the pier.

Commissioner Branch second-
ed the motion, and the motion
passed with Commissioners
Money, Branch, Tankersley,

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. Thursday, May 14. 1981


problems with the applica-
tions for Dalkeith and Over-
street. The Chairman asked
Mr. Pitts to make a recom-
mendation on these permits.
Mr. Pitts recommended the
following utility permits be
granted:
No. 81-5 St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Comn
pany.
No. 81-6 St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Com-
pany.
Upon motion by Commis-
sioner Birmingham, second
By Commissioner Branch, the
permits were approved with
Commissioner Birmingham,
Branch, Tankersley, Money,
and Gortman voting "aye".
Attorney Rish asked that it
be written in the minutes why
this variance was approved on
these two particular permits.
Mr. Pitts gave the following
explanation:
The two permits do not
comply with the requirements
of Resolution 80-18, which
authorized Administrative
Assistant Tommy Pitts to
grant the permits; therefore,
the Applicant has the right to
appeal to the Board for the
'permits. The telephone com-
pany therefore appealed to the
Bard and were granted the
permits because the ditch and
shoulders on those roads
would not permit them to
install their line on the back
slope of the ditches.
Speed Limit-St. Joe Beach
Henry Cassani presented a
letter from the Department of
Transportation concerning the
speed limit at St. Joe Beach.
Mr. Cassani requested the
Board's help in getting the
Department of Transportation
to lower the speed limit in St.:
Joe Beach from 55mph to
45mph. The Chairman direct-
ed Clerk Jerry Gates to write
a letter to the Department of
Transportation requesting the
Department of Transportation
conduct a survey to see if
condition at the beach war-
ranted lowering the speed
limit from 55 to 45 mph.
Street Name-White City
Mrs. Selma Shoemaker and
Mrs. Dot Creamer appeared
before the Board requesting a
street name in White City be
changed From Wimico Ave-
ue to Sealey Avenue. Commis-
sioner Gortman made a mo-
tion to change the street
name, seconded by Commis-
sioner Money, and the motion
passed with Commissoners
Gortman, Money, Tankersley,
Birmingham, and Branch vot-
ing "aye".
Civil Defense Director
EMT Course
Civil Denfense Director Bill
Lamar told the Board he was
taking the emergency medical
technician course as request-
ed by the Board and payment
for the course needed to be
made. Commissioner Gort-
man made a motion that the
Board pay this bill. Commis-
sioner Birmingham seconded
the motion and it passed with
Commissioners Gortman,
Birmingham, Tankersley,
Branch and Money voting
"aye". Commissioner Gort-
man told the Clerk he would
determine what budget to pay
the bill from.
Ambulance Squad-
Jo 0' Barr
Mrs. Jo O'Barr appeared
before the Board to inquire
why her application to the St.
Joe Ambulance -Squad has
continually been turned down.
She stated she received a
letter from the ambulance
squad which said she was
turned down because of her
inability to get along with
people. Mrs. O'Barr said she
had previously brought this
matter before the Board and
the ambulance committee and
she feels she is being treated
unfairly. Mr. O'Barr also said
the ambulance by-laws stated
you could reapply after six
months and tht if this did not
apply to her it should not apply
to anyone else.
Mrs. O'Barr presented a
letter of recommendation to
the Board. Mrs. Betty Curlee
and Mrs. Betty Fain spoke on
Mrs. O'Barr's behalf, stating
they worked with her, that she
was a qualified. EMT, and
there wasn't an organization
in the United States in which
people didn't have problems
getting along with each other
at times.
Commissioner Money said
there is a need for trained
EMT's because we are paying
taxes to train new EiT's and
he requested the entire Board
meet with the ambulance
committee. Commissioner
Gortman suggested that since
this was Commissioner
Branch's department he call a
meeting between the am-
bulance squad and ,Mrs.
O'Barr to solve this problem.
Commissioner Branch said he
would be glad to meet with the
squad, but he thought the
ambulance committee should
review this matter. Commis-
sioner Branch then submitted


a petition signed by 24 persons
asking for Mrs. 0 'Barr's


- approval as an EMT on the
ambulance squad and he
i asked the Board to write a
letter requesting the applica-
tion by reconsidered even if
there were conditions made on
this approval. Carl O'Barr
then spoke on Mrs. O'Barr's
behalf. The Chairman direct-
ed a letter be written to the
ambulance squad and the
ambulance committee
requesting them to reconsider
Mr. O'Barr's application,
even if the ambulance squad
put conditions on Mrs.
