Jury Duty Now

More Convenient

We're glad to see Gulf County
take a step which might take some
of the inconvenience out of a citizen

fellow man as a juror, judge of
some crime one of our neighbors
might be charged with.
Were we one of those to be
tried, we would like to have the
juror as even-tempered as possible
when he finally sat down to hear
our case and rule on our guilt or
innocence. A juror which has been
called in and has to sit and wait, or
get sent home after a long wait,
only to be summoned back again on
what might again be an exercise in
waiting and frustration, is hardly

in the best of moods.

Having been called to jury duty
in the past, we can feel for the
jurors who sit around and cool their
heels while all these procedures in
the benefit of the defendant are
being exhausted. Even feeling for
the rights of the accused, it still
causes the juror sometimes a hot so
small amount of inconvenience on
his own.
Now, if a case is not ready to go
to court, the juror can know about
it the afternoon before the case is to
be tried and stay at home, go to
work, go fishing, work in his
garden or whatever he had planned
for the day had it not been

Mr. President, Could You Answer Questions?

By Rev. Adolph Bedsole
Wewa First Baptist Church
Our article this week takes
the form of a personal letter to
the President about the Fed-
eral Grants to a homosexual
church and to produce Play,.

blind. If we get an answer to
this letter we will share its
contents with you in this
column in the future. Here it
Dear President Reagan:
Here comes a letter from a
deep South "Republicrat".
You see, Mr. President, I am
one of those registered Demo-
crats who voted Republican in
the last election to help make
you President.
Millions of us appreciate
your efforts to cut inflation,
reduce taxes, balance the
budget and cut out the waste
in our government. We pray
that you may be able to
implement the entire pack-
SMr. President, I keep read-

grant to help produce Playboy

magazine in braille for the
blind. The other is. a $300,000
plus grant to a homosexual
"church" to aid, them in
resettling homosexual refu-
gees in this country.
SFour questions please:
1. Is it true? 2. If so, what is
the name of the agency
making such grants? 3. Who
has the authority to stop such
grants? 4. Will you do some-
thing about it?
If these allegations are true,
it is a grave miscarriage of
justice for American tax
dollars to be used to help
finance such immorality. So, I
am appealing to the top
man-will you do something?
Mr. President, do you like
catfish and hushpuppies,
shrimp, oysters on the half-
shell, venison, plus all the
trimmings? if so, why don't

could look down on some of the rain
clouds putting out a slight.rain in spots
over the countryside.
While we were in Minneapolis on

Saturday, Frenchie's sister and bro-
ther-in-law, along with her niece and
husband, took us on a trip around three
lakes in downtown Minneapolis which
are parks. The afrgest lake was about
four miles around, with the other two
slightly smaller.
The City of Minneapolis has made a
park all the way around all three lakes.
There was a nice wide grassy strip all
the way around, along with a paved

swimming, boating and feeding the

sales and cleanliness. I never saw the

large fat ducks which lived on the lakes.
In the winter time, the lakes froze over
and they were used for ice skating.

TWO THINGS THEY believe in in
Minneapolis and St. Paul were garage
sales and cleanliness. I never saw the
first beer can or bottle, or the first piece
of paper in the park or on the side of any
road anywhere we went in the twin city
area. It wasn't because the city kept the

area policed up, it was because the
people just didn't throw it down. They
don't foul their own playground or front
yards like we do here in Florida.
Across the road we were riding on
facing the lake, we saw an interrupted
line of large houses and mansions. Most
of the houses would make George
Tapper's house look like a bungalow,
but they were all located on almost a
postage stamp size piece of property.
One of these mansions was having an
estate sale, which is a mansion garage
We decided to stop and look at this
estate sale and particularly the house.
We entered to a foyer with solid marble
floors and walls, walked up a winding
marble stairway to the marble-floored
and carpeted entry hall.
The girls shopped the items on sale
in the estate sale and Frenchie made a
purchase. She laid out a nickle for an
almost-dead easter lily, claiming she
could cut the plant off and have a bulb
for growing another lily. (Remember
what I told you last week about her

Pfc, Frankie H. Fennell, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Alton Fennell
of 225 Ave. A., Port St. Joe,
recently completed One Sta-
tion Unit Training (OSUT) at
the U. S. Army Infantry
School, Fort Benning, Ga.
OSUT is a 12-week period
which combines basic combat
training and advanced indivi-
dual training..
The training included weap-
ons qualifications, squad tac-
tics, patrolling, landmine war-
fare, field communications
and combat, operations. This
qualifies the soldier as a
Slight-weapons infantryman
and as an indirect fire crew-
Soldiers were taught to
perform any of the duties in a
rifle or mortar squad.




Studies by the U.S. Con-
sumer Product Safety Com-
mission (CPSC) show that
each year more than 62,000
persons, bystanders and oper-
ators are injured seriously

each patrol operating as an
individual unit within a speci-
fic troopsite.
"While in summer camp,
Scouts have the opportunity to
develop leadership skills,
participate in advancement,
and develop in personal fit-

If the taste of summer fruit in winter sounds appealing, don't
let fresh plums escape the marketplace too quickly. They
combine in a delicious Pear and Plum Jam that will provide
eating pleasure during the months ahead. Although fresh
fruit has some natural pectin, it often requires commercial
fruit pectin to assure a good "set" in this case liquid fruit
pectin. A short boil of the prepared fruit combined with
sugar is the only cooking required to preserve the fresh flavor
of the fruits.
Pear and Plum Jam
4-1/2 cups prepared fruit 7-1/2 cups (3-1/4 lb.)
(about 2 lb. fully sugar
ripe pears and 1-1/2 2 pouches Certo fruit
lb. fully ripe plums pectin
and 1/4 cup water)
First prepare the fruit. Peel and core about 2 pounds pears.
Grind or chop very fine. Pit about 1-1/2 pounds plums; do not
peel. Cut in pieces and chop. Combine plums and 1/4 cup water
in saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer 5 minutes.
Combine fruits and measure 4-1/2 cups into 6- or 8-quart
Then make the jam. Thoroughly mix sugar into fruit in
saucepot. Place over high heat, bring to a full rolling boil and
boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat
and at once stir in fruit pectin. Skim off foam with metal
spoon. Ladle quickly into hot jars, filling to within 1/4 inch
of top. Cover and process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes.

"Where Jesus Christ Is King
& God's Love Is An
Everflowing Fountain"
SUNDAYSCHOOL ...... 10:00A.M.
Pastor Ira J. Nichols



One step won't take you very far,
You've got to keep on walking.

One word won't tell 'em who you are
You've got to keep on talking.

An inch won't make you very tall.
You've got to keep on growing.

One little ad won't do it all,
You've got to keep them going.

A constant drop of water
Wears away the hardest stone;

By constant gnawin', Towser
Masticates the toughest bone.

The constant, cooing lover
Carries off the blushing maid.

And the constant advertiser

Is the one who gets the trade!

Make us prove it.

School Is Out,

Drive Carefully

Schools are out for the
summer and motorists need to
take extra care for youngsters
playing or riding bicycles on
or near streets and highways,
according to the Florida High-
way Patrol.
Pedestrian fatalities for the
first four months of 1981 are up
six percent over the same
period in 1980. The number

family will always be remem-

increased from 230 to 243.
Bicycle deaths have also
increased in 1981 by 19 percent
during the first four months.
There were 37 in 1980 from
January through April and
there have been 44 killed so far
in 1981.
Florida Highway Patrol
Director Colonel Eldrige
Beach requests all motorists
to yield the right-of-way to
pedestrians and bicycles, even
when there is some doubt.
He said, "There is small
satisfaction for a driver who
views an injured or dead
pedestrian or bicyclist lying in
the street and says, 'I had the
right-of-way.' "
Beach concluded by saying,
"You may be offering the gift
of life by giving up the
right-of-way and there is no
greater gift one can offer."

These young people are bending their backs in the hot
sun at the task of weeding the greens of the city's pitch and
putt nine-hole golf course in Forest Park this past week.

Gardening Is A

Year-Round Job

Gardening is a year-round
'job and though June encour-
ages lazy summer days, the
S ardent gardener must be on
his toes with current garden-
S ing chores. With the approach
of summer days, many gar-
d ,ening problems will call for
S, ,immediate attention.
June and the summer sea-
son are important times to
S provide extra care for azaleas
Sand camellias, while they are
'. establishing flower buds for
S n~~ext season's blooms. During
the summer, a lack of water
;>' and plant food or insects and
diseases may limit next sea-
son's production.
A good green summer lawn
somehow makes the June
Summer days seem a little
-. cooler,. yet it takes effort to
have a good healthy summer
S lawn. Water lawns thoroughly

require 1 inch of water one or
two times per week during dry

controlled with Aspon, Bay-
gon, Diazinon, Dursban,
Ethion or Trithion. Water the
lawn grass before and after
application. It seems chinch
bugs get the blame and often
unjustly for everything. Be
sure the damage is not due to
other reasons.!
Summer annuals always
provide quick and easy color
during the hot, summer'days.
Fast growing and colorful
annuals will continue to pro-
Svide beauty if given proper
care. Feed established an-
nuals with a complete fertili-
zer, such as commercial 8-8-8,
applying % cup per square
yard of bed area. Remove
faded blooms from annuals
and cut blooms for indoors
often so as to encourage more
blooms. Water annuals well
during hot, dry periods and
control major annual pests to
insure good production.
June insects and diseases
may include the following:
Southern wilt or, crown rot on
ajuga will cause a wilting of
the plant foliage and-death of
the plant. There is no good
control, other than good wa-
tering practices. Water at
ground level and do not
sprinkle the foliage of, the
plant. Wet foliage will encour-
age the spread of the disease
to healthy 'plants. Also,
drenching with Terraclor
helps prevent this disease.
Remove infested plants to
prevent spread of this serious
disease. Mildew, a common
summer disease which causes
a white powdery cast on the
plant foliage and twisting of
foliage, usually occurs on
common plants such as crape
myrtle, roses, Japanese mag-
nolia'and annuals. Control
mildew with Acti-dione PM or
Karathane. Spider mites,
which feed beneath the foliage
on junipers, roses and other
ornamentals, appear as small
red dots, which causes a
yellowing of the upper foliage.
Control this summer insect
with Kelthane, or Tedion.
Meta-systox-R and dime-
thoate (Cygon or. De-Fend)
give some control of mites,
especially when applied be-
fore populations become
June and the summer
months are good times to
make cutting of your favorite
ornamentals. Take five to-
seven cuttings of current
year's growth and place in a
well-drained rooting media
and cover with clear plastic or
glass to achieve high humidity
and heat. Some plants that are
commonly grown from cut-
tings include: abelia, gar-
denia, croton, coleus, poinset-
tia, ligustrum, holly, bottle-
brush, Japanese yew, althea,
azalea, crape myrtle, olean-
der and others.
Other timely June garden
suggestions may include or-
dering seed catalogs for Fall
planting. Pinch back chrysan-
themums to induce branching
and more blooms for this Fall.

#Bugs Enemy of Pine Trees

What is the No. 1 problem
with yard trees that is faced
by Florida homeowners?
Field foresters of the State
Division of Forestry supplied
the answer in a recent state-
wide survey. They said home-
owners ask most frequently
for advice and assistance with
damage from a group of three
little known but deadly
Collectively, the insects.are
known as pine bark beetles.
Individually, they are the ips,
black turpentine and southern
pine beetle.
The most damaging of this
trio is the Ips beetle, which
also is the smallest. The Ips
beetle is about /4 inch in
length and about as big around
as a pencil lead. Most people
never, meet Ips face-to-face
because the great majority of
its life is spend in the thin
layer of living tissue just
under the bark of the southern
pines. Quite often a pine's

needles turn red and the tree
dies before the owner even
knows the tiny beetle is
around. Close examination of
the infected tree will reveal
small white or reddish globs of
pitch, about inch-in dia-'
meter extending V to / inch
out from the bark. These
"pitch tubes" are the only
visible signs of attack.
SThe Ips 'larger cousin, the
Black Turpentine beetle, is the
second most common bark
beetle in Florida. The Black
Turpentine beetle is' dark
reddish to black in color and
about % of an inch long. This
beetle creates a larger pitch
tube which often reaches 1 to
11/4 inches in diameter. The
Black Turpentine beetle got
its name because it ip a
common problem around tur-
pentine operations. All bark
beetles are attracted by trees
oozing pitch from scrapes or
wounds in their' bark. In a
turpentine operation the bark

is deliberately stripped away
to allow the pitch to flow into
cups for collection.
The southern pine beetle has
the potential to do more
damage than either of the first
two pests but, fortunately, is
rare in Florida. Several small
outbreaks have been reported
mostly in extreme northern
Florida. The southern pine
beetle was responsible for
killing thousands of acres of
pines in north Georgia several
years ago. All three species
attack a tree in the same way.
A small round hole is bored
through the bark and into the
soft living tissue called the
cambium. The cambium layer
is very important to the tree
because it transports most of
the nutrients and water from
'the roots up to the crown of the
tree. When the beetles reach
this tissue they begin feeding
their way around the tree.
These tunnels, also called
galleries, serve as home,

restaurant, and nursery to the
bark beetles. Eggs laid while
the parent beetles are boring,
hatch, leaving beetle larvae
and pupae to tunnel and feed
where the parents left off.
Eventually galleries cut off
the flow of water and nutrients'
and cause the death of the
Several chemical pesticides
are available to combat bark
beetles. Two of the more
commonly used chemicals are
Lindane. and Benzene hexa-
chloride. When using these
products, care should be taken
to read and follow all instruc-
tions provided by the manu-
facturer including use of per-
sonal protective equipment
such as gloves and face'

I Jim Walter offers you 10% mortgage financing when he
ANNUAL builds your home. Do you know how much this means to you?
PERCENTAGE Just 3 or 4 percent more, over a 20 year period, amounts to
CRATE many extra thousands of dollars.
Here are some facts for you to consider. If you sign a
20-year, $30,000 mortgage at only 13%, you will pay back $14,872 more than for a Jim
Walter-built-and-financed home having this same cash price. On a 20-year, $35,000 mortgage at just
13%, you'll pay back over $17,000 more. That's 17,000 of your dollars Can you afford togive away this
much money? With Jim Walter, your monthly payment on a $30,000 mortgage Is only $289.50, based on
the example below. For comparison, at 13%, your payment would be approximately $351.47. That's
$61.97 MORE! THINK OF THAT! $61.97 more you'll pay every month for 20 years.
Butthat's not all... with Jim Walter there are NO "Points" or "Closing Costs" and, in most cases, NO
DOWN PAYMENT is required. Credit approval is usually a matter of one or two days instead of the weeks'
and weeks of most mortgage companies.
Shop and Save When you shop around for a builder, be sure of your total costs. Find
out how much your interest rate will be, then ask your Jim Walter representative to show you comparison
figures. While he's there,, take a close look at what Jim Walter has to offer. Let him show you our more
than 20 homes that can be built on your property almost anywhere to almost any stage of completion
from the shell (unfinished inside) to 90% finished. This means you can do some or all of the inside
finishing yourself to save even more money.
So if you own property on which you would like to build, come to where your costs are low... where
your value is exceptionally high. Come to where 10% annual percentage rate financing is no problem.

Water is vital for life of
plants, including lawngrasses.
It is needed for seed germina-
tion, plant growth, photosyn-
thesis (food production), con-
trol of plant temperature and
transportation of nutrients.
Water also maintains turgid-
ity of leaves enabling them to
withstand wear.
Florida rainfall averages
over 50 inches per year with
about half of this falling from
June through September. Dur-
ing the dry winter and spring,
lack of water may be a serious
problem. Even during the
rainy season, loss of water
may be so great that irrigation
is often necessary. Soils which
hold very little water make
watering essential during the
hot summer.
A practical and economical
watering program must in-
clude three basic ideas. Each
concept may be sent forth as a
question: (1) When should
water be applied? (2) How
much water should be ap-
plied? (3) How should water
be applied?
Determining when to water.
Water when the turf is under
stress from lack of water.
There are several ways you
can tell when grass needs
water. If you notice spots in
the lawn with first a bluish
gray color and then turns
brown, water is needed. If
footprints remain in the grass
long after walked upon, water
is needed. If the plant is full of
water, it will be resilient and
withstand foot traffic.
If a soil Sample is taken in
the root zone and it feels very
dry and crumbles, additional
water is needed.
In prolonged dry periods of
high temperatures and strong
winds, all of the proceeding
symptoms may be seen during
these periods, plants may lose
water faster than it is absorb-
ed and will wilt.
With a little experience, you
can tell when it is time to
water. Watering in this
manner is called an "as
needed" program. Tnis is
perhaps the most economical
way to water, but you must
water when needed and not at
a later time. Delay will cause
permanent damage to the
SAmount of water to apply.
The amount of water to apply

at any one time varies how
much water is present to begin
with, the water holding capa-
city of the soil and drainage.
The idea is to wet the entire
root zone but not saturate the
Many Florida soils are
sandy and hold about % inch
of available water in the top
six inches of soil. If the root
zone (top six inches) were dry
about % inch of water is
required to thoroughly wet
this area. This is more than
300 gallons of water for each
1,000 sq. ft. of lawn.
During the summer, daily
water use by lawns may be as
high as four tenths of an inch,
This means that all water in
the root zone could be used in
about one day. Thus '/ inch of
water would have to be
applied each day just to
balance the water loss.
A general rule often used'in
Florida is to apply from to
one inch of water (300-600
gallons per 1,000 scq. ft.) every
two weeks in the winter and
one or two times per week in
the summer. Of course, all
soils are not the same, so you
will have to adjust the amount
of water to apply to your
particular lawn.
Manner of applying water.
Water should never be applied
at a rate faster than it can be
absorbed by the soil. If the
sprinkler applied too much
water, it only runs-off and is
being wasted. This seldom
happens with small sprinklers
unless the turf is very thick or
the soil compact.
Avoid extremes in water.
Light, frequent watering is
inefficient and produces shal-
low root systems.. Excessive
irrigation which keeps the root
zone saturated with water is
also harmful to the grass.
Roots need air to function and
too much water kills or
greatly decreases root

lived president was John
Adams, who lived to"
be nearly 91 years old.

Shrimp Crepes Easy Elegance
The pleasure of eating light and delicious crepes need not
be reserved to the restaurant. The ingredients are few and
common, and preparation is quick, easy, and fun. The com-
binations of fillings are limited only by one's imagination.
Shrimp Crepes Veronique is the newest idea from the
Florida Department of Natural Resources seafood test kit-
chens. Shrimp is available year 'round and is high in protein
yet low in fat. A mere one-half pound of tiny shrimp will com-
pose the rich filling for eight crepes enough for four serv-

Whether for an elegant guest dinner or simply as a plea-
sant change of pace for the family, make it a point to try
Shrimp Crepes Veronique.

There being no further
business, the meeting ad-


People working in a Fed-
eral, State or local govern-
ment job not covered by social
security should know that the
pension from this work could
affect the social security
benefit they were expecting to
receive as a husband or wife,
David Robinson, Social Secur-
ity Field Representative for
Gulf County said recently.
This is because, the social
security benefit for a husband,
wife, widow or widower will be
reduced, dollar for dollar, by
the amount of the government
pension. This offset will not
affect the amount of the
government pension or the

* *t ************





*Et -la * **t *****
El Salvador


amount of any social security
benefit the person receives
based on his or her own work
covered by social security.
In addition, Robinson said,
the law provides an exception
for some people. A person is
exempt from the offset if: he
or she is eligible to receive a
Federal, State or local govern-
-ment pension before Decerm-
ber 1982 even though he or she
does not apply for it; and he or
she meets all the require-
ments for wife's, 'husband's,
widow's, or widower's bene-
fits in effect in January 1977.
At that time, a man had to
have been dependent.upon his
wife for more than half of his
support to .be eligible as a
husband or widower, and a
divorced woman's marriage
had to have lasted 20 years,
rather than the, 10 years now
required for her to be eligible.
The purpose of the offset is
to prevent windfall payments
to retired government
workers who have their own
pensions and would also re-
ceive social security benefits
as a spouse or surviving
spouse, Robinson said.
In addition, the offset will
not apply if the person's
government job is covered by
socialsecurity on the last day

In the past several months
the political situation in El
Salvador has caused quite a bit
of concern for many
Americans. Jose Napoleon
Duarte. the President of El
Salvador. has received limited
American aid to help holster
his position, but / mlany
Americans remain confused
and hesitant about our role in
the small Latin American
country. In this week's
column, I would like to briefly
describe the current situation
in El Sal\ador and discuss our
aid to Duarte.
As you know. El Salvador
has been racked by violence for
well over a year. It has been
estimated that over 8000
people have been killed in the'
political struggle between
Duart.e's center-rightist
government and. the leftist
guerrillas who wish to over-
throw him. This -violence
received widespread attention
in the United States last.
December, when three
American nuns and an
American lay missionary were
killed, and in January when
two American agricultural ad-
visors were assassinated.
Duarte desires American aid to
combat the guerrillas who op-
pose his government.
Duarte's request for aid
raised at least two questions
for the United States: 1)
Should we aid El Salvador?
and 2) if so, what kind of aid
should we give? 'The leftists
who oppose Duarte operate
under an organization called
the e Unified Revolutionary
Directorate and 'it is believed
that they have up to 5000 guer-
rilla warriors in combat. The

their weapons from the Soviet

Nicaragua. To bolster El

guerrillas, the Reagan admin-
istration decided that America
should provide assistance to El
Perhaps the more difficult
question was what kind of aid
we should give. Many
Americans were fearful that, if
webecame involved, the situa-
tion in El Salvador would
slowly escalate into another
Vietnam. However, this should
not happen. Thus far, we have
sent only 56 advisors as well as
some economic aid to Duarte.
These men and women are only
advisors and are not equipped
for combat. Already the leftist
guerrillas seem to be losing
power and most experts do not
feel, that the situation will
further escalate. It appears that

Most Americans recognize
that the Duarte government is
not a perfect one. It, a' well as
the leftist guerrillas, has been
responsible for many deaths.

to answer the needs of El
