Fennell Wins Race
Tax Authority Given Commission
Alton Fennell -became Port St.
Joe's first black City Commissioner
Tuesday when he out-polled David
Horton in the second primary election
by 98 votes. Fennell had a total of 684
ballots cast in his favor and Horton was
the loser 'with 586.
Rain for most of the day slowed the
voting down considerably until the rain
stopped around 4:00 p.m. About 600
votes had been cast until that time.
When the polls closed at 7:00 p.m., 1,282
votes had been cast, six less than was

The situation of a black and white
candidate running against each other
Tuesday had its unusual aspects. There
was no controversy nor was there any
white versus black feeling expressed
during the campaign or election
periods. While a substantial vote was
cast for a low-key city election, the
tone of the campaign seemed to be just
one candidate against another.
Fennell will be sworn into office for
a one year stint to complete the
unexpired term of the late John Robert
Smith nn Tunesdayv June 2 at the regular
meeting of the Commission.
The second question on the ballot
was whether or not the City Commis-
sion would be given the power to reduce
or eliminate ad valorem taxes for new
industries wishing to locate in Port St.
Joe for a period of up to five years.
The question drew only about half
the votes as the two candidates running
for office, but was approved by a 443 to
165 vote. Nearly half 'of those going to
the polls Tuesday expressed an opinion

eight hour deliberation that
Mayhan should be convicted
of that or any other charge.
When the final arguments
were heard by both sides in
the matter and the jury had

Prior to entering'into seclu-
sion to seek a verdict in the
case, Judge Bodiford identi-
fied the legal definition of the,
charges of first and second
degree murder and man-
slaughter. He also defined the
law's definition of self defense

ing self defense or justifiable
homicide, a defendant has a
legal duty to retreat from

evening were Jack Kerigan

Kerigan noted that the sen-
iors were "about to be tossed
out in the real world. It's
different and we had better be ;
ready". He went on to say the
graduating seniors were vital
ingredients to society for the
future. In carrying out the
theme of "Ye are the salt of
the earth", Kerigan said,
"Salt preserves, excites and
enhances food. You are the
salt of the future of humanity.
You can either preserve,
excite or enhance the future or'
you can lose your savour and
be tossed aside".
Collinsworth said, "If we
cannot fulfill our purpose we
are of no use". She went on to
observe, "We must combine
our lives with God and other
human beings to build a useful
and solid future."

diplomas to the 125 graduating
seniors after observing that

"I handed most of these
graduates their kindergarten
graduation diplomas, taught
most of them in the classroom
and had a working relation
with them throughout their
of their school years."
Wilder urged the graduates
to "Give direction to your life,
and your family. Don't let
materialism overwhelm you,."
Paper Mill Shuts.
Down for Repair
St. Joe Paper Company's paper mill ceased operations
Friday of last week to take care of some needed maintenance
on a boiler in the plant. While the mill was down for the boiler
repair, officials have decided to extend the shutdown for at
least another week to do needed routine maintenance in other
parts of the mill. It is anticipated that the much needed
Maintenance will be completed in about 17 days and that
operations of the mill will resume on Monday, June 8.
In the meantime, the mill's machinery is silent and the
'stacks are not smoking as some workers of the mill take
unscheduled vacations while the needed and selective
repairs are being made by the maintenance staff.
Gulf Income Third I
Florida's panhandle counties ranked
near the bottom of the state's 1979
per-capita income scale, the University of
Florida's Bureau of Economic and Busi-
ness Research said last Tuesday.
Gulf County was third from the top in
average income among the 20 panhandle
counties with an average of $6,768: Leon
county was first in the best part of the state
with an average per capital income of
$7,934. The statewide average was $8,521.
The nationwide average was $8,757.
The poorest county in the state and in'
the panhandle was Franklin, where the per
capital income was $3,974.
Per capital personal income is total
personal income of an area divided by
total population, including all adults and
children. Per capital figures do not indicate
how many people or families in an area
have high or low incomes or what the
lowest or highest income levels are.
Per capital incomes in the panhandle
counties were: Leon, $7,934; Escambia,
.$6,973; Gulf, $6,768; Okaloosa, $6,577;
Taylor, $6,498; Bay, $6,487; Jackson,

la, $5,055; Gadsden, $5,052; Holmes,
$4,996; Calhoun, $4,890; Liberty, $4,539;
Dixie, $4,504; and Lafayette, $4,215.
The highest income level was reported
in Palm Beach with $10,520. Other top
counties were Sarasota, $10.425: Broward.

Dade, $9,714; Indian River, $9,395; Martin,
$9,178; Orange, $9,087; and Pinellas,
Gulf County was way down the line,
tenth from the bottom in receiving its
income from government sources. Gulf
Countians received seven-tenths of one
percent of its income from federal sources
and 10.9 percent of its income from state
and local sources.
Gulf County incomes received a 13
percent jump from 1978 to 1979, earning a
total of $70 million in income in 1979 as
opposed to $62 million in 1978.
Gulf's income per capital placed it 30th
in the 67 counties in the state of Florida.

Garage Sale Threatens Much of Our Treasured Valuable Savings
WE HAD A garage sale at our
house last Saturday. All four of the
Ramsey families put their junk -
excuse me unused treasures, toge-
ther and the ladies had a high old time
getting rid of those "valuable" things
which are no longer used or wanted.
: There were plenty of people who
wanted this stuff. I found that out. I
took off and went fishing while the
Exercise in commerce was going on,
Sand that was a mistake.
There was a lot of that junk in the
utility room which were treasures I was
saving. There was a couple of lamps
which needed new cords or a plug on the
end of the cord, or a bulb, or a bulb, or a new light
Socket. I had been intending to fix these
treasures for the past two years, and
Sthe ladies sold them. There was a
:couple of beautiful pictures in the
storage we have had for a long time,
: gathered from some of our friends or
: relatives. They were, perfectly good
S pictures, which I was going to hang
Some day. They're gone.
: There was an old rocking chair
which needed the rocker glued back on,
5 and I was going to get around to it...
- mea iv That rocker sat good and
rocked perfect when I had time to sit in
it and rock and cogitate. They sold it out
from under me.
The ladies advertised their sale in
last week's paper and made the
mistake of putting my exercise bicycle
in their list of items to be sold.
Thursday and Friday, we had 12 calls
from people wanting to buy it before the
My bicycle didn't get sold. I put the
stopper on that one. I intend to use that
bicycle .. some day.
I told Frenchie if she wanted to sell
a bicycle, she could sell the one she
rides. Or at least she rode it before the
tires went flat. Now, it's just sitting in
the garage. I noticed it was still sitting
in the garage when I came back from
my fishing trip.
If I hadn't gone fishing, they would
probably have sold my boat, or my,
tackle box, or my fly rod, all of which
was in the boat, along with several
other treasures which I don't want to
get rid of.
Our storage room is chock full of all
kinds of things: flower vases, books,
magazines with "valuable" recipes in
them, which Frenchie is going to go
through one of these days and take the
recipes out: there's even a file cabinet
of recipes, dress patterns, piles of
things to go into flower arrangements,
etc., etc., and I noticed they are still
there. You still can't walk through the
utility room without risking a'broken
All my treasures are gone. Fren-
chies' are still there in the way, taking
up valuable room.
When I asked her "Why?", she
said, "I'm going to use those".
All in all, the garage sale weeded
out some of the "treasures", but the
ones which were in the way all the
while, still are, because Frenchie is
"going to use them some day".
I HAVE NEVER SUFFERED from
headaches. I may have one or two a
year, when the weather gets really
muggy and I might get a sinus
headache. But, having headaches every
so often like many people do has never
been one of my ailments.
I was reasonably proud of this
situation, because I can imagine that a
headache can hurt.
The other day, Erma Bombeck
wrote a column on headaches, pointing
out that a person could get away with
anything and arouse all kind of
sympathy by the simple words, "I have
a headache". Headaches get all kinds
of people out of all kinds of things. If
you want to leave a meeting or a party
early, all you have to do is say, "I have
a headache", and you are excused with
the greatest of sympathy. If you just get
up and leave early, people consider you
Now, I'm not so sure if being
headache-free is a blessing or not.
According to a piece I read in the
paper the other day, people who have
headaches regularly are supposed to be
perfectionists, intelligent achievers
who don't know how to deal with stress.
Their homes are never messy and they
always busy their lives with details.
I thought I had a few of these traits
in a reasonable amount. I consider
myself a professional. I'm not over
smart, but most of the time I'm able
figure out .which side of the bread has
the jam on it. I like to think I'm sort of
an achiever, or at least I like to think I
try to be.
But, I don't have headaches, so
where does that leave me?
The only bright spot for me in the
article was a paragraph which said that
people who don't have headaches tend
to adopt a philosophy of acceptance and
get on with their lives. In other words,
little things don't bother them.
I admit little things don't bother
me, except at times when they do. A
headache-less person is relaxed and
lives in a pleasant situation.
I didn't know that. I thought I had
plenty of stress to do me and a few
I guess the only answer is that to
have a headache one has to have
something in there to ache.
I'm going to try harder to have a
headache once in a while.

Free assistance for local
veterans and their families
will be available when a Field
Service Unit of the Disabled
:American Veterans (DAV)
visits this area in Lynn
-Haven on Wednesday, June 3.
This is the eighth consecutive
year that one of these office-
equipped vans has travelled to
communities throughout the
itate, bringing free benefits
counseling and claim filing
assistance to veterans and
; The DAV Field Service Unit
will be located at Lynn Haven
for this area. Theseunits are
generally open from 10 a.m. to
A fully qualified and trained
DAV veterans' benefits expert
will staff the traveling service
facility. He can assist veter-
ans and their families in filing
claims for such federal and
state benefits as disability
compensation, pension, em-
. ployment and job training
programs, educational bene-
fits, hospitalization and medi-
cal care, Social Security,
death claims and more.
During the past seven years,
more than 300,000 veterans
and dependents took advant-
age of this free service when it
came to their communities. As
a result of these visits, DAV
National Service Officers filed
107,000 claims for disability
compensation and pension
benefits alone. Thousands of
claims for other government
benefits were also filed.
Veterans need not be mem-
bers of the DAV to take
advantage of this free service.
The project is an extension
of the 61-year-old, 690,000-
member organization's Na-
tional Service Program,
which provides a. variety of
assistance at no cost to
veterans and their families.
Under the program, the DAV
employs 290 full-time National,
Service Officers more than
90 percent of whom are
disabled veterans of the Viet-
nam War period at Veter-
ans Administration (VA)
facilities dcroes the country.
During the most recent full
year for which statistics are
available, these veterans'
benefits specialists handled
212,000 individual cases, win-
ning federal benefits totaling
some $700 million for veterans
and their families.
"Special emphasis is placed
on Vietnam era veterans
because many of these men
and women aren't using the
benefits they've earned, some
out of sheer distrust of the
government that sent them to
Southeast Asia .to fight an
unpopular war," said DAV
National Commander Stan
Pealer, himself a Vietnam era
"It's surprising how many
people don't even know about
benefits they're entitled to by
law until they step into one of
our mobile offices,+'said DAV
Executive Director Denvel D.
Adams. Explaining the need
for the program, Adams ad-
ded, "Many veterans, depen-'
dents and widows live some
distance from VA facilities
where DAV services are avail-
able. Our Field Service Unit
program carries these ser-
vices right to the door-steps of
DAV officials urge veterans
of all wars particularly
disabled veterans to take
advantage of this free service
by visiting the DAV mobile
office to discuss any problems
or questions they may have
concerning veterans' benefits.
Local DAV and DAV Auxil-
iary members are cooperating
with the DAV's national head-
quarters to bring this special
service program to the area.
A mobile unit of the Disabled American Veterans field
Service will be in Lynn Haven next Wednesday, June 3, to aid
veterans of this area.

eties have at least a twelve
inch height for cutting. To
produce larger quantities of'
flowers, make sure the
varieties are hybrids. Hybrid
flowers are genetically
programmed for earlier and
more profuse bloom as well as
disease and weather
A survey of professional
flower designers found the
carefree, elegant gerbera
daisy to be an excellent flower
for foral arrangements. Also
known as Transvaal daisy,
gerberas are perennial
flowers for the South.
Two attributes make gerb-
eras perfect for any kind of
bouquet, the combination of
long stems and clear, bright,
daisy-lke blossoms. Gerberas
are also naturally elegant
flowers, with an inborn grace
in any kind of setting.
Gerbera Daisy Elegant, Easy to Grow
Gerberas will be even more
popular this year now that
new hybrid varieties are
available as started plants
purchased from the garden
suppliers. New 'Mardi Gras'
and 'Sunshine State' hybrids
assures earlier and more
profuse flowering in their
specially bred genes.
The long, sturdy stems
support a rainbow of blooms
throughout the gardening
Gerberas do require some
basic considerations from
their growers. All gerberas
need a full or % day of sun as
well as well-drained soil. Start
by purchasing transplants. At
transplanting time make sure
that the bottom leaves of the
plant are not buried. This
insures that the crown of the
plant, the growth center for
the stem, will not rot from
excess soil moisture.
My son has a tough job. He works for Florida Fbwer. Everybody complains to him
about their power bills his neighbors, his friends. I have to admit, even his own mother
has been giving him a rough time.
After all, I'm on a fixed income. And some of these bills are quite a shock.
"No problem, Mom," my son says, "put Florida Power on a fixed income like I did.
Just call them up and ask for the Equal Payment Plan." Well, I called. And starting
now, my electric bills will be the same amount every
month. No surprises.
And they also told me about Time Of Use
