Groom, representing the St.
Joe Paper Company, opposed
the ordinance since they felt
the ordinance would in effect
widen the right of way of all
county roads by 10 feet, taking
several acres of land from
the paper company.
Nedley argued that the
ordinance could conceivably
prevent the paper company
from planting pine trees in the
10 foot setback area, denying
them the use of a large portion
of their land.
Groom pointed out that the
company had been very len-

ient in the past about giving
road right of way where it was
requested by the county and'
felt that the measure would
simply take another 10 feet on
both sides of all roads in the
county on which paper com-
pany property is located.
Jim McNeill of Indian Pass
argued essentially the same
points, pointing out that he
didn't know how much proper-
ty this would possibly take
from the paper company, but
that he had figured out road
mileage in his property and
estimated it would take eight
acres from him.

question, "What brought this

Branch pointed out that two
prime examples are to be-
found in Oak Grove and
,Highland View, where build-

traffic hazards, especially at
corners. Branch went on to
point out that provision would
be made to acquire a variance
to the ordinance andhe felt the
board would be more than
willing to grant a variance
where it was needed.

Dead Lakes Bill Dries Up
State Representative Leonard Hall advised the Gulf
County Commission Tuesday morning that the bill to abolish
the present Dead Lakes Commission had died on the Senate
calendar, effectively killing the bill for this session at least.
Gulf County had asked the Representative before the
current session started to abolish the Commission and give
them control over the Dead Lakes, along with the Calhoun
County Commission. Before the matter could reach the
legislative hopper, a controversy sprang up between Gulf
and Calhoun counties as to the make-up of the governing
committee for the Dead Lakes.
By this time, Representative Hall said the measu

of the controversy between the two counties. The
ruled that since the measure involved two counties,
became a general bill rather than a local matter and fa
consider it on the local bill calendar.

Vicki Johnson In Gainesville for Marrow Transplant
Taking An Experimental and Expensive 50-50 Chance to Overcome Leukemia
Vicki Johnson, wife of Bob Johnson, has
one last chance to whip the leukemia which she
has lived with for the past several years.
The Johnson's, who live at 106 Mimosa
Drive here in Port St. Joe, will go to Shands
Teaching Hospital in Gainesville this week to
begin an experimental procedure which they
hope will restore Vicki to normal health again.
According to the doctors, Vicki's procedure
will be strictly an experiment, and an
expensive one at that. The doctors give her a
50-50 chance of coming through the procedure
victorious. The alternative is death.
Vicki has been in remission from her
leukemia for some time now, but it is getting
active again and doctors say that without this
experimental procedure, she has no hope of
recovering from the latest surge of activity by
Mrs. Johnson will undergo a bone marrow
transplant from her sister, Mrs. Donna McBeth
of Pensacola. The procedure will be done by
doctors Roy S. Weiner, Samuel Gross and
Barry Kramer at Shands.
Only 12 cases of bone marrow transplant
have been tried in treating leukemia and these
were from donors to a twin suffering from the
disease. Only eight of the cases were
"There has never been a bone marrow
transplant from a sibling", Johnson told The
Star Monday of this week. "Vicki will be a
guinea pig in this treatment."
Mrs. Johnson is going into the hospital this
week for what will be a long seige of
hospitalization and treatment. There is still no
certainty that she will undergo the marrow
transplant. First, doctors will remove her
spleen and give her extensive treatment before
doing the actual marrow transplant.
The actual transplant of the marrow, which
involves the taking of marrow from the donor
via syringe and implanting it into the patient,
depends on how Mrs. Johnson responds to the
It will be at least a month before the
Johnson's know if the doctors will go ahead
with the marrow transplant.
With a choice such as Vicki has, death or a
50-50 chance of survival from the transplant,
Johnson said, "It wasn't hard to make up our
minds to go ahead with the experiment".
Even if the procedure is successful, Vicki
faces an ordeal which can continue for as long
as six months, with at least two months in the
hospital. The treatment following the trans-
plant procedure can damage or destroy the
liver, intestines, bladder and heart. Also
devastating is the fact that the minimum of two
months in the hospital will cost $300 to $400 per
day just for the hospital room.
The entire procedure is expected to cost
between $60,000 and $100,000. "Our insurance
and other benefits won't go this far"' Johnson
said. Personnel at the hospital are helping the
Johnson's to come up with sources of aid in the
expensive procedure, but even so, the
Johnson's will probably end up some $20,000 in
debt. "We just don't know what the future will
be", Johnson said. "This procedure has never
been done before, and'there is no way to tell
what we will run into in the way of expense or
difficulty from the treatment."
Friends of the Johnson's have opened a
bank account at the Port St. Joe Branch of the
Wewahitchka State Bank for those who may
wish to make contributions to the Johnson's
staggering medical bills they are expecting.

Suit StillIn Court
The case of Sally Malone
and Doris Schott versus Cecil
G. Costin continues to drag on
and on and on and on.
Last week, Judge Larry
Bodiford issued an order in
favor of Costin, labeling the
claims of Malone and Schott
as "a sham". Immediately the
two ladies appealed the ruling.
Last Friday, the two sides
were in Apellate Court in
Tallahassee before Judges
Pierson, Ervisn and Lyles,
where Malone and Schott
gave their arguments in the
latest step for an action filed
against the ladies by Costin.
Costin had filed the action
against Malone and Schott in
June of 1978, charging them
with harassment and interfer-
ing with a contractor building
a house for Costin at St. Joe
Beach. In 1980 a summary
judgment was handed down in
favor of the ladies, which
Costin immediately appealed.
The appearance in court Fri-
day was the ladies' answer to
the appeal. They argued their
own case in the Tallahassee
Since the house has long
since been completed, the
court decision could have no
bearing on the construction of
the house, whatever the out-
come. The action has been in

announce that the dinner entree is shark! The surprise will.
dissolve into delightful satisfaction after tasting this'
', deliciously flaky, mild flavored fish.
Shark meat is cooked by the same methods as other firm-
S fleshed lean fish. An especially nice characteristic is the fadt
that there are no bones to mar the eating quality. In addition
l to its good taste, shark also is an excellent, source of high
quality protein with just 4 ounces supplying half of one's daly
Europeans, Mexicans, Japanese, and other nationalities
have recognized the gourmet qualities of shark for centuries
Sin such traditional as "shark steaks", "shark-fin soup", and
: m "fish 'n chips". Americans are now joining in by enjoying
shark in restaurants and at home.
The Florida Departmept of Natural Resources recom-
;: mends the following species for their excellent edible
;: qualities: mako, lemon, sandbar, dusky, silky, bull, blacktip
and spinner. Size is more important than species, however,
with the smaller sharks being more tender and palatable.
Surprise your family tonight. When the question rings out,
"What's for dinner?", answer Shark!

Tn deadline for the end of
the 1981 Session is here. There
are, however, some major
budget differences between
the House and Senate version
of the Appropriations bill to be
resolved. The conferees 'from
each Chamber continue to
work around the clock to
reach agreement before the

Because of these major
'budget differences it looks
like, at this point, we will have
to go into extended session. I
am strongly opposed to this
action as I believe it is an
unnecessary expense to the
people of this state.
One of the major education-
al funding issues was resolved
Wednesday evening when the
Senate. accepted the .House's,
recommendation of $80 mil-
lion for PREP (K-3) program.
At one time the House and

recurring revenues has been
allocated for transportation.
About $72 million will be used
for completion of the Inter-
state Highway System, and
the ,other $40 million will be
Used for road resurfacing
projects. This additional
money resulted from revised
revenue projection figures.
When.the original transporta-
tion budget came out these
figures were not available;

My husband is a line repairman for Florida Power. But on weekends, he normally
won't even fix a sandwich! That is, until the last electric bill fixed him.
You know, when you work for Florida Power you can't exactly call up
screaming about bills like some people d6, so it was time
to take matters into his own hands. First he ran out and'
caulking gun. And now he's using it to seal up all the
air leaks in the house.
Next, he'll do the weatherstripping.
And without spending a lot of money, we'll
have saved all that expensive energy from
going right out the window.
And we'll be able to keep more of his pay-
check from going right back to Florida Power.

*******u****** ***********t Proposal
Tax Cut Proposal
As many of you already
know, Congress and President
Reagan have recently worked
closely together to reduce the
growth in federal spending by
$45 billion for FY 82. On May
20th the House approved the
conference report on the first
concurrent budget resolution
by a vote of 244-155. The
Senate approved the measure
on May 21st by a vote of 76-20.
The resolution calls for budget
targets of $770 billion in
budget authority, $695.45
billion in outlays and $657.8
billion in revenue. The debate
on how :much the federal
government should spend has
for the most part been re-
solved. However, the debate
on what should be the size and
the scope of the tax cut has just
President Reagan has pro-
posed a 10%0 reduction in
federal personal income tax
rates for three years in a row.
In addition, the President's
package would provide incen-
tives for greater investments in
production and job creation
via faster tax write-offs of new
factories and production
equipment. Under the Reagan
personal income taxes are to be
cut by approximately $43
billion and business taxes will
S be cut by $9 billion for FY 1982
alone. According to supporters
of the three-year 10% across-
the-board reduction in per-
sonal income taxes, the
proposal will stimulate
productivity and growth by
creating greater incentives to
save and invest on the part of
:. the average wage earner. In
other words, taxpayers will
work more to earn additional
dollars if they are no longer
penalized for their extra effort.
In the long run, this will create
additional revenue for the
government which will be used
to reduce the deficit. Critics of
the three-year 10% proposal,
however, argue that it will
create a larger federal deficit
which in turn will generate
higher interest rates and a
higher inflation rate.
The House Ways and
Means Committee has come up
with an alternate proposal.
which will provide for a one-
year tax cut in personal income
tax rates and more targeted tax
relief and reform for
businesses and individuals.
This proposal would wipe out
the marriage penalty tax, ex-
pand the individual retirement
account (IRA) to those already
covered by a pension plan and
accelerate capital cost recovery
for businesses, to name a few.
Supporters of the approach
argue that a one-year tax cut
with permanent savings and in-
vestment incentives will create
a smaller federal deficit. than
the three-year cut while
stimulating the economy with a
more conservative fiscal ap-
proach. Critics contend that a
three-year tax cut is needed to
turn the economy around and
that the one-year approach
constitutes "business as
The final outcome of the
revenue debate will come later
this summer. I believe that a
compromise package which
embraces the strong points of
both the Administration's bill
and the Ways and Means Com-
mittee bill will emerge. Such a
compromise would have broad
bipartisan backing which
would send a signal to the tax-
payers, our nation's businesses
and the world market that
America is indeed on the road
to economic recovery..
