Drought Clobbers Gulf's Corn Crop

Extension Director Roy Lee Carter Estimates Loss Above 70%

Even though local showers have
begun to alleviate the drought condi-
tions here in Gulf County, the rains still
didn't come early enough to prevent a
considerable loss to the growing row
crop farming operations in the county.
Two of thk four main crops of the
county were hit considerably hard by
the dry weather, virtually wiping out
one of them.
According to County Externsion
directorr, Roy Lee Carter, the county's
morn crop suffered devastating loss. He
Nestimated that from 70 to 80 percent of
the considerable corn crop has been
completely wiped out by the dry
weather. Carter'said the only farmers

making any appreciable amount of
corn are those who irrigated their
"Fico Farms near Wewahitchka
had some irrigation on some of their
corn and will save part of it", Carter
said. "The rest of the corn is gone".
Carter said Fico's irrigation was
limited and designed only to supple-
ment rainfall and not as a primary
watering source, so even these corn
acres would suffer production set-
backs. Carter said, "Corn must receive
rain about a week before tasseling and
about two weeks after in order to make
a good crop. This year, the corn didn't

get either rain. In most cases, the stalks
were burned up by the drought even
before tasseling time."
The other crop to be hit hard by the
drought was the pasture lands. "The
dry weather came at one of the selling
periods, and some cattle people just
sold off their herds when the dry
weather hit", Carter said. He pointed
out that others, principally the larger
cattle operations put their cows into
fields reserved for haying operations to
keep their cattle with enough feed. "Of
course, this is going to mean a short hay
harvest later on in the year", Carter

pointed out.
The other two principal crops, rice
and soybeans have not been damaged
appreciably yet Carter pointed
The rice growers don't depend on
rainfall to water their crops, since the
watering time for the crop is so
sensitive. They pump water when it
doesn't fall in the form of rain. The rice
crop is still in good shape.
Soybean planting was delayed this
year because of dry weather, but the
crops are in the ground now, and the
showers we have had have made the

soybean crop come up strong. "Soy-
beans are normally planted between
May 15 and June 15 in this part of the
country", Carter said. "Most of the
crop was planted this month". He said
the largest acreage, some 8,000 acres,
was planted by Fico Farms around the
first of the month and a good stand is
reported. "If the showers continue as
they should, the soybean crop will be at
least normal", Carter surmised.
All in all, Carter said the corn crop
is almost a complete loss, pasture lands
at about 30 percent of normal, rice and
soybeans doing good.
Truck farmers have also been hit

by the dry weather, but Carter said that
local watering has produced fair to
good gardens and truck crops. "Those
who didn't water from sources other
than rainfall have realized about a 40
percent yield.
As far as farming goes, Gulf County
is just getting into the row crop
business. Carter estimates that approx-
imately 24,000 acres of Gulf's 385,000
acres are under, cultivation in row
crops. Even so, the drought caused a
considerable money loss to the Gulf
County economy, even if the major part
of the county is not devoted to row

Six Cases In County Court

With 50 cases on the docket
of county court the first-of the
Jule, six cases were to be
tried last week before County
Judge David Taunton.
Five cases eventually went
before a jury for trial last
week and a sixth case saw a
capias issued for the arrest of
the defendant, James Red-

mon, because he was not
present in court as directed.
Redmon faced a charge of
petit theft.
Of the other cases to be
tried, two were found not
guilty and two were judged
guilty by the jury. The fifth
cas:rended in a directed
verdict of not guilty and the

defendant turned loose.
Several other cases were
before the court last week, but
last minute pleas and continu-
ances disposed of 10 of the
cases for the present session.
Five cases were continued to
another session, four were
nollo pressed (released for
lack of evidence) and the one

l Fireworks Display

On Tap Saturdayfor Fourth
Port St. Joe will celebrate the July Fourth holiday with a
giant fireworks display Saturday evening. The fireworks will be
set off in the park at the intersection of Fifth Street and Highway
98 on the shores of St. Joseph Bay.
The fireworks display has been secured by the City
Commission and will be set off by the Volunteer Fire
o Department, beginning about 9:15 or as soon as it is dark.
Included in the display will be mostly aerial displays and
bombs, putting on a display of showering stars, rockets and
other colorful items. The grand finale of the fireworks
program will be a fireworks display of the American flag.
The display will be arranged so spectators can use the
entire city park, next to the Florida National Bank as a
spectator viewing area.
This will be the first fireworks display presented In
Port St. Joe in several years. The Port St. Joe Jaycees presented a
fireworks display in conjunction with the fire department several
years ago. This year, the City Commission has purchased the
display, which is scheduled to last from 45 minutes to an hour in
order to observe the holiday as it has been done for years in the
It is illegal in Florida for individuals to set off fireworks.

Port St. Joe donors gave 26
units of blood at the Red Cross
blood drive at City Hall last
Wednesday afternoon, accord-
ing to Mrs. Tom Parker, who
was in charge of the drive.
Mrs. Parker said the goal of
the drive was 50 units of blood.
"Even though we fell woe-
fully short of our goal, the
response to the drive this time
was at least as good as it was
at the last drive", Mrs. Parker
said. She pointed out, "This is
only the fourth time we have
held these Red Cross blood
collection drives here and we
feel the interest will grow as
the program continues. We
have a good program here and
we feel the people should
support this program which
insures us a continuous supply
of whole blood of all types for
the local hospital at very little
effort on our part".
Mrs. Parker and others who
work with the program feel
confident the response will
increase as time goes by.
Municipal Hospital reached

an agreement with the Red
Cross blood program a little
over a year ago to furnish
tested whole blood at the

hospital rather than rely on blood at the cost of handling
the walking blood bank which and replenishes what is used
had been used in the past. The in Port St. Joe with the
Red Cross furnishes the whole periodical drives here.

paying made later.
This is the reason both Munic
pal and BMMC have had the

problems in the past and likely will
have in the future.
The reason the two hospitals
are attempting to merge is to keep
this loss situation to a minimum.
The bills of the hospitals must be
paid whether the patient's bill is
paid or not.
With an arrangement between
the two hospitals, they both could
continue to provide medical care to
those unfortunate enough to need it
and still not be able to pay. The
merger would affect economies in
the operation of both institutions
through their affiliation with the
Volunteer Hospitals of America. It
is currently beginning to work for
Bay and a merger would make it
work for Municipal as well.
As the negotiations continue,
we hope the News-Herald will stay
on top of them and perhaps will be
persuaded to change their editorial
mind when they learn what the full
full impact of such a merger will
have on the economies of both

jobs, we would see a sign which
said, "Your Highway Dollars At
Work", or "Your Tax Dollars At
Work". One of these signs was
invariably posted at both ends of
the construction job.
If you take a trip today to
central or south Florida, you can
see many like signs. The road
construction equipment will be
running at full blast, paving and
re-paving roads almost every-
where you look. Our taxdollars are
at work en masse down in that part
of the state.
What brought all this on was
that David Rich remarked to us the
other day that we should begin to
make bad noises about Highway 71
and Highway 98 east of Apalachi-
What David was telling us was
nothing new to us. We have rattled
over both highways on occasion in
the past and in the history of
several years ago. They haven't
improved a bit.
The only sensible thing we
could tell David was that the state
of Florida has failed to put up the
signs saying, "Your Tax Dollars At
Rest", which they surely are in
these two needy instances.
They wouldn't rest long, how-
ever, if they were transported
across these two highways.

Great Segments of Our Society Are Hooked

By Rev. Adolph Bedsole
Wewa First Baptist Church
America is hooked! Great
segments of our society are
hooked on drugs and liquor.
But the whole of our society is
hooked on GOVERNMENT
Bureaucrats, like drug
pushers, dole out their pro-
ducts piece-meal until the
victim is thoroughly hooked to
the point they feel they cannot
do without the products.
Cities, states, schools, in-
dustry, business- all have been
victimized by government
grants. Remember, a grant is
simply a gift which does not
have to be "repaid?".
Every unit of our society
which seeks or accepts such
grants justifies itself by say-
ing, "If we don't get it
somebody else will."
But those grants do have to
be repaid! They are repaid
from the pockets of taxpayers
in the form of ever increas-
ing taxes on the people.
Citizens know that but they do
not act as if they know it.
One city in West Florida had
a lovely and adequate munici-
pal building but when they
were offered a government

grant, they grabbed the grant,
built a new building and
vacated the one they had. And

Says Hutto Has Deserted Democrats

Dear Sir:
On June 27, State Editor Art
Surber reported in the News
Herald that Congressman
Earl Hutto sided with the
Republican members of Con-
gress in voting more than $5
billion in additional Federal
budget cuts. Surber quotes the
Congressman as saying his
vote choice was difficult,
because it was "a vote against
the Democratic party".
The significance of this is
that we seem to have a
Republican in Congress in
Democratic clothing. Histori-

cally, Republicans have regis-
tered as Democrats in the
South, a practice that began
as the Civil War ended when
the Republican army defeated
a Southern army. Since that
time, due to the large shift in
population to the South; the
increased number of blacks
and other minorities voting;
and the lowering of the voting
age, trends have changed. It is
no longer necess4 for
Republicans to parade as
More than ever before, the
people need to know for whom

they are voting, and by what
principles an elected member
of Congress abides. Congress-
man Hutto's desire to "get
government spending under
control to get a grip on
inflation and spending" is
admirable, but I feel he was
ill-advised,-indeed, almost
turncoat-, to degenerate the
party that supported his can-
didacy. I am disappointed,
and hope that his vote does not
reflect a "permanent trend

offensive shows.
I will join the advertisers in wishing
to clean up the airwaves, but for
different reasons. The advertisers are
becoming concerned at having their
names linked with programs people say
they disapprove of. I just disapprove of
some of the shows in general. If the

Predict 26 to Die On Highways

During Fourth of July Weekend

The traffic fatality prediction for this
year's Fourth of July weekend is 26 people
with the 78-hour holiday period beginning
at 6:00 P.M., Thursday, July 2 and ending
at midnight, Sunday, July 5, said the
Florida Highway Patrol recently.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Patrol director
said, "The Operation CARE (Combined
Accident Reduction Effort) program will

be in effect during the Fourth of July
holiday period with concentration on
Interstates 75 and 95. The Florida Highway
Patrol will cooperate with other states in
this effort and drivers who are speeding,
driving drunk, passing improperly or
following too closely will be prime targets
of troopers patrolling in these areas."
Patrol records show that last year, 22

persons lost their lives on the State's
streets and highways during the 78-hour
holiday period. Of the 12 motor vehicle
occupants killed that had safety equip-
ment available, none were using it. Of
those not using safety equipment, three
were totally ejected from the vehicle.
With the high price of gasoline and
heavy holiday traffic, a family picnic at

home might not be a bad idea. However, if
you do plan to travel, start your trip with
the determination to follow common sense
rules to protect yourself and your family in
highway traffic. "Fasten seat belts and
drive with caution and courtesy to
eliminate the chance of changing a holiday
into a nightmare," concluded Colonel

How often do you see a city,

a government grant? We just
don't do that in America.
People have come to feel
that they simply cannot go on

The Legislature also made
provision for us to meet
critical needs in such areas as
library materials, technical
equipment, and building
maintenance and repair.
Given that our experience
was not unique, it is par-
ticularly remarkable that so
much was accomplished with-
out the levying of a single new
tax. Our legislators should not
be judged on immediate im-
pressions but on the substan-
tive actions they performed. I
believe that effective legisla-
tors are those who can balance
parochial interests with state-
wide priorities, current costs
with future returns. We are
fortunate indeed to be repre-
sented by four outstanding
and dedicated individuals who
have consistently proven they
are capable of just that.
nI offering my public com-
mendation of Senators Demp-
sey Barren and Pat Thomas
and Representatives Leonard
Hall and Ron Johnson, I
should like to invite an ob-
jective evaluation of the past
legislative session, remem-
bering that form can never

which is still governed best

Apparently, America is

Port St. Joe Has Some of

Florida's Colorful History

Dick Boyer, curator of the
Constitution Museum here in
Port St. Joe, gave the Rotary
Club a thumbnail resume of
the history of the Port St. Joe
area last Thursday at the
regular meeting of the club.
Boyer claims the Port St.
Joe area has more history

than any place in Florida,
except Pensacola and St.
The Spaniards were the first
white men to settle Florida,
coming to St. Joseph's Bay in
1513, with the expedition nam-
ing the bay. The Spaniards
stayed in this vicinity for 300

years, giving up West Florida
to the British in exchange for
Cuba. The British kept West
Florida for 30 years and then
traded it back to Spain for the
Bahamas Islands, which is
still a British protectorate.
During this period of time,
the French came to West

Florida for a short period of
time, making their presence
known in the Port St. Joe area
by building a fort near what is
now St Joe Beach.
Boyer said that according to
the history books, the Spani-

Pudding Stars In Fruit-Topped Cake

Once upon a time a pudding
cake was about the moistest
and richest cake you could
make. Now it's even more!
Here's one with stripes of
pudding running through it
for added taste, texture and
eye appeal.
The method is the magic
of this new concept in which
you poke holes in a baked
and cooled cake and pour on
half of a luscious instant pud-
ding and pie filling mixture to
create the "stripes." When the
remaining pudding thickens,
spread on the cake surface as
frosting. This creamy cake is
garnished-with fresh summer
fruit to boot... and fancied up
with thawed frozen whipped
topping on the sides.
You can summerizee" this
new cake concept with a bevy
of fruit-and-pudding combina-
tions: peaches, chocolate fudge
instant pudding and pie filling
with yellow cake; strawberries,
French vanifa flavor instant
pudding and pie filling and
chocolate cake. Mix and match
for tasty triumphs!

In 1811, John rorbes was
awarded land grant by the
Spanish in what is known
locally as the "Forbes Pur-
chase", which stretched from
the Apalachicola River at the
Franklin-Gulf County line to
east of Tallahassee. The land
owned by Forbes, a trader in
the area, amounted to over a
million acres and played a
great part in the establish-

Just before St. Joseph start-

Forbes notified many of the
residents of Apalachicola that
they had built on his land. He
notified them to pay him his
price for the land or move off.

economic life of Florida in

sBenefits End with Marriage

Most Social Security bene-
fits to dependents or survivors
of retired, disabled, or de-
ceased workers end if the
person divorces or marries,
according to David Robinson,
Social Security Field Repre-
sentative for Gulf County. But
benefits to widows or widow-
ers who remarry at age 60 or
older are not affected and will
continue unchanged.
Benefits to a child getting
checks because he or she is
under 18, disabled or under 22
if a full-time student will end if

the child marries. Checks to a
spouse getting benefits on the
record of a retired or disabled
worker will end if the marri-
age ends in divorce unless the
spouse is 62 or older and the
marriage lasted 10 years or
Checks for a widowed moth-
er or father getting benefits
because she or he is caring for
an entitled child will stop if
she or he remarries.
There is an exception to
these general rules, Robinson
said. If an otherwise eligible

person receiving benefits as a
widow, widower, or adult
disabled in childhood marries
a person also receiving bene-
fits as a widow, widower, or
adult disabled in childhood
marries a person also receiv-
ing one of these kinds of
benefits, he or she can con-
tinue to receive benefits.
Benefits will also continue if
a person receiving benefits as
a widowed mother or father or
adult disabled in childhood

marries a person receiving
benefits as a retired or
disabled worker. A retired or
disabled worker's benefits are
never affected if he or she
marries or divorces.
For more information about
how divorce, marriage, or
remarriage affects Social Se-
curity benefits, contact the
Panama City office, located at

Budget Cuts

May Cost

A Few Jobs

In GulfCounty

The proposed budget elimi-
nation of the Economic De-
velopment Administration
(EDA) by the Reagan Admini-
stration may cost Gulf County
jobs in the future.
Gulf County received
'$289,000 from EDA for addi-
tional storm drainage facili-
ties in Port St. Joe five years
ago; however, it was hoped
the Agency would play a
major role in the construction
of the Port Facility proposed
for Port St. Joe. EDA played a
major role in building Port
facilities in both Panama City
and Sneads.
The Economic Development
Administration promotes eco-
nomic development activities
in rural areas; unlike most
federal programs that are
urban oriented. Monies are
provided for loan guarantees
to local businessmen to assist
in construction, f new in-
dustries and e4ansion of
existing businsies. .Addi-
tionally, assistance is avail-
able to counties and cities to
encourage industrial develop-
ment and provide public ser-
vices to local communities. In
North Florida, EDA funds
have been utilized by local
governments to attract in-
dustry when capital would
have been otherwise unavail-
able from private sources.
The President's proposal
would eliminate all EDA
funding and would leave rural
communities without any as-
sistance; whereas, urban
areas would continue to re-
ceive aid under the Reagan
Some have suggested that
economic development will be
provided for in the proposed
future block grant programs;
however, Presidept Reagan
has indicated that such
monies be eliminated from
such programs because in-
dustries will locate without
local financial support. How-
ever, EDA programs have
proved efficient in North
Florida enabling local govern-
ments to provide both jobs and
services to local citizens.
The budget, including EDA,
is presently .before both

Although Political Action
Committees, or PACs, are a
relatively recent phenomenon
in relation to our governmental
system, they have become a
strong force in shaping the
course of events on Capitol
Currently over 2,000 of
these PACs exist, encompass-
ing a wide spectrum of
ideological preferences and
economic interests. The main
purpose of these PACs is to
monitor legislation considered
on Capitol Hill and in turn to
inform 'the public on how par-
ticular Members of Congress
voted on specific issues.
According to Dr. David
Walter of the Advisory Com-
mission on Intergovernmental
Relations, the rise of political
action and public interest
groups seems, in large part, to
be directly related to a decline
in our national political par-
ties. Public interest group for-
mation achieved great
popularity in the middle and
late 1960's as people became
disenchanted with the policies
being articulated and pursued
by both Republicans and
Democrats. These groups were
basically liberal in their
political outlook and concen-
trated their lobbying efforts on
specific issues such as en-
vironmental preservation, gun
control and welfare rights. In
the mid 1970's, however, many
more groups began to form in
order to advocate a more'con-
servative viewpoint in govern-
ment. These groups also con-
centrated on specific issues
such as the pro-life fight, a
balanced federal budget, in-
creased law enforcement, and
prayer in schools.
An underlying motivation
of many of these groups is to
increase their particular lobby-
ing strength by gaining pub-
licity, supplying information,
increasing the awareness of
legislators, and by' implying
campaign support for'those in
government who support the
groups specific interest.
Many political action and
public interest groups try to in-
crease their influence over
legislators by publishing the
voting records of Represen-
tatives or by creating some type
of a ranking-merit system by
which, to. judge a
CongreSsmaans performance.
Through these activities, the
groups try to. swing", a Con-
gressman's vote by inducing
political pressure from the con-
stituents in his district.

PACs and Political Interest Groups

This group activity can
often be very beneficial to the
Congressman because it pro-
vides him with information on
how groups in his district feel
on specific issues much like
polling data. It is doubtful,
however, if the ratings have
much direct influence, except
for those members who sym-
pathize with the rating group.
Ratings and voting records
are most frequently used in a
negative way to try to discredit ,
incumbents who have voted in
opposition to these groups.
Through negative publicity the
group tries to induce the Con-
gressman to move to their
camp or suffer adverse pub-
The National Tax Limita-
tion Committee is a prime ex-
ample of a user of these tactics.
The NTLC has twice tried to
pressure my vote through
dozens of radio spots bought
and paid for by them to
aired strategically during pea
times in Pensacola. The idea is
that a surge of calls to the
district office would force me
to vote the position of the
NTLC. The last radio spot
caused a furor among Con-
gressmen because of mis-
representation, a direct lack of
the truth, and bad credibility.
Because of these falsifications
the, NTLC was required to.
withdraw these ads.
Although political interest
groups and PACs do at times
offer an invaluable service to
both the Congressman and his
constituents, it must be:
remembered that their main-
objective is to achieve their:
own specific goals. The-
NTLC's ads represented a
negative campaign and at-
tempted to be a threat to the
Congressmen by disseminating
false information.
