Industry- Deep Water Port- Fine People Safest Beaches In Florida
PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1981
Lunch Prices Increased
Schools Will Charge $1.00 for Noon Meal
Parents of school age children will experience
first hand the austerity program of President
Ronald Reagan when school starts this year. The
federal cut-back in funds will be experienced when
parents dig up $1.00 to pay for school lunches for
pupils in the new school year. /
Tuesday morning, the Gulf County School
Board, after considerable deliberation, set the new
$1.00 school lunch rate as the charge which would be
needed to continue serving hot, nutritious lunches
from the- school cafeterias. Students receiving
reduced price lunches will pay 40 cents and adults
will pay $1.50 in the new lunch pricing schedule.
Although the lunches were increased in price,
e Board was able to come up with a price which
was lower than many of the area school districts.
Lunch prices in the Panhandle range from one as
low as 75 cents to a high of $1.25. Most schools are
selling lunches at $1.15 to $1.25 for the coming school
Severe federal spending cuts being activated by
the new administration in Washington is causing the
increase in lunch prices. In the past, the federal
government has subsidized school lunches through
cash contributions and furnishing food through the
commodity program to supplement local purchas-
es. A loss of these subsidies puts the school board in
the position of financing the entire lunch program
with local funds.
Wilder said the school board was reluctant to
subsidize the lunch program with local tax funds.
"Our local tax dollars are already hard-pressed
with state limits, to finance other needs at the
According to Wilder, the most significant
factor attributed to the increase in lunch prices is
found in a hew wave of federal spending cuts
affecting many federal programs in the public
schools. To a lesser degree, soaring food costs and
increased utility costs also are a contributing
Wilder said, "Gulf County's price of $1.00 per
student is about average for the area. The $1.00 cost
will, if many factors do not change, keep the food
service program in the schools providing nutritional
meals for all students and will also reduce the
necessity of diverting large sums of normal tax
dollars to supplement the food service program."
The School Board knew they would have to take
a look at this service at the end of the last school
year, when they were notified the federal
government would no longer participate in the
program. "We have spent the summer looking at
the problem and arriving at a price which would
cover the cost of preparing the meals and still offer
as much economy as possible to the student",
Repairs Finished On Water Well

also caused a shallow well a

The City of Port St. Joe has come up with what is almost
a collector's item this week, with a letter or praise from the
Department of Environmental Regulation.
A letter this week from the DER notified the City of
Port St. Joe that the city's water plant had been chosen as
the "Plant of the Year" in the Northwest District of
Florida. The award was earned for operations, quality of
water provided in the city, and meeting EPA
requirements as the ideal water treatment plant.
As a rule, a communication from DER is telling a
community what is wrong or what phase of operations is not
meeting standards. The letter from DER last week was a
surprise to the City, even though it was a welcome surprise.
The City of Port St. Joe will be presented an award for
the accomplishment of its water treatment operation at the
annual meeting of the Florida Water and Pollution Control
Operators Association in Gainesville on September 2. A story
outlining the local water treatment plant's operations will
also be featured in "Overflow", a monthly magazine
published by the FWPCOA.
The award is an honor for any city and verifies that the
water system is meeting all EPA requirements for providing
good, clean, unpolluted water for its customers.

After a long and dry spring
and summer drought, the
local rains which have whet-
ted the thirst of the Panhandle
the past few weeks almost
seem to be the deluge which
has broken the drought. "Not
so", says Emily Simmons,
who keeps a daily record of
rainfall in Port St. Joe. "Even
with the showers we have been
getting, rainfall in the area for
July is still a little below
average for the month". Mrs.
Simmons says Port St. Joe has
received only 9.2 inches of
precipitation during July, just
barely average for the month.
In comparison, Port St. Joe
received 20.6 inches of rainfall
in July of 1975.
August is starting off a little
better and shows more prom-
ise of alleviating the dry (and
fry) weather experienced
from the latter part of April to
the middle-of July. August has
already produced 3.2 inches of
rainfall, through Tuesday.
Most of the August rainfall fell
in one day, with two inches

in a short period of time.

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, AUGUST 6,1981
We really hate tp take the stand
against the DER and EPA because
we are not advocates of raping the
land nor its resources.
The environmental orgahiza-
:tions do such crazy things at times,
however, we just can't help our-
'selves. We are so appealed at some
o::f their rulings.
Tommy Pitts gave us another
food for thought the other day
concerning one of DER's rulings
for Gulf County.
: As you know by now, the DER
: .is insisting that Gulf County bury
its garbage at least five feet above
: our ground water level and cover
4he garbage with at least two and a
h half feet of earth. Here in the Port
: St. Joe area, the ground water level
L is about three feet under the
"ground, making their criteria
-useless to Gulf County, since, using
S3heir depth guidelines, we would be
burying our garbage under water.
Therein lies the reason the
DER is being so hard on Gulf
County and its landfill program.
S In the north end of the county,
in the Buckhorn area, the county
has its only approved landfill
operation, some 30 miles from Port
: St. Joe and even farther from the
beaches. In this site, the DER will
allow Gulf County to bury garbage,
since doing it as DER requires will

healthful moves Gulf County has
made is the present project of

system for the Beaches and White
While we question the actions
; of DER and EPA at times for some
of the things they require of us, we
agree with them that in our
location there is an extra-ordinary
need for care concerning pollution
but from a health standpoint more
so than from an ecological stand-
Just a few years back, the
County Commission installed a
public water system in Oak Grove,
and set the program up so the
people of Oak Grove would pay for
it. The system is working out great,
both from a water service stand-
point and an economic venture.
White City has a sizeable
population to be forced to get its
drinking water and put its sewage
into the ground on the same small
polluting ground water.
Pitts says DER has their rules
for Gulf County just backward.
The garbage landfill at Buck-
horn is over some good, clean
water which could be used for
human consumption. He feels that
eventually the garbage could leach
into this clean, pure water.
In the south end of the county,
the water is polluted by mother
nature with tannic acids and other
natural chemicals to the point
where it is unfit for human
consumption. The water is used
largely for yard and garden
Pitts says why not go ahead
and bury garbage in water which is
already polluted by mother nature
and not bury it over water which is
pure and clear. He makes sense,
but DER doesn't think so.
Our own argument is that we
are urged to use the same
ingredients which go to the gar-
bage dump to make compost for
our gardens and yards. We are told
how much more healthful this
compost is over fertilizer. If these
ingredients are good to produce
foodstuff even better than 8-8-8-
why is it such a danger to our water
We wouldn't particularly want
to drink water which came out
from under a garbage landfill, but,
neither do we want to drink any of
the ground surface water in south
Gulf County without a considerable
amount of treatment.
building lot. The Beaches are in a
more, precarious- situation, since
" they havea"deniser population than
does White City and have the
disadvantage of porous sand to get
their water from and place their
sewage in the ground -alongside. It
would seem their situation is even
more potentially explosive than
Engineers report the average
water bill in these areas will be in
the neighborhood of $20 a month or
a little less. That seems to us to be a
small price to pay to eliminate the
very present possibility of having
to drink polluted water, not to
mention the dependability of hav-
ing a central water system, gush-
ing forth clean, fresh water at the
turn of a handle.
With savings on water soften-

twice the price.
Watching the World Go By
Steer Your Footsteps to God
By Rev. Adolph Bedsole
Wewahitchka Baptist Church
It happened more than 40
years ago. I heard about it at
the Alabama Baptist Conven-
tion which was meeting in
Montgomery, Alabama in the
Dr. F. M. Barnes was the
Executive Secretary of the
State Convention. During the
convention, he related an
experience he had in conduct-
ing a revival in a country
Dr. Barnes was the visiting
evangelist for the revival. The
pastor had carried him to visit
a lost mother and two lost
The mother was rather
flippant about the matter of
becoming a Christian. She
always tried to side-track the
soul winner with a joke or
some humorous word. How-
ever, she was very cordial to
the pastor and Dr. Barnes
during the week. She and her
daughters attended the revi-
val services, but on the last
day of the revival neither the
mother nor the teen-age
daughters had made any
commitments to Christ.
By the time the last day of
the revival came this family
had become a heavy burden
on the heart of Dr. Barnes.
They still had not been able to
meet and deal with the father
in the family.
The pastor and the evan-
gelist were making more
soul-winning visits on that last
Dr. Barnes insisted that
they make one last call in an
effort to reach this mother and
They found the mother out
back doing the family wash
for the week. When she saw
Dr. Barnes coming around the
house, she came to meet him,
drying her hands on her
apron. Again, she started
jesting to Dr. Barnes about
him not being able to "get
her" during the revival.
"Lady," said Dr. Barnes, "I
am in no mood for jesting
today. I have just a few words
to say to you and then if you
are determined to go on to hell
that will be up to you."
"It is bad enough for you to
go to bell alone but for you to
stand in the way of those two
daughters is a terrible thing.
You see, you are carrying
them to hell with you."
"So, I want to suggest that
you go down to that creek
behind your house and drown
yourself-and go on to hell if
you are bent on it. But, if you
will drown yourself, you will
be out of the way of those
daughters. Perhaps, then they
will be saved."
With that, Dr. Barnes
turned abruptly and left the
speechless woman in a daze.
As Dr. Barnes stood to
preach in that last service, he
saw this mother come in and
find a place in the back of the
church. Her husband and the
two daughters were with her.
Dr. Barnes said that hus-
band was a giant of a man and
he figured the man had come
to thrash him after the service
was over. So, with some
apprehension, Dr. Barnes
preached the last revival
When he gave the invitation,
that mother was the first to
step out. She was followed by
her husband and the two
teen-age daughters.. The
entire family was saved in
that service-after the mother
led the way.
There are times when,
under the leadership of the
Holy Spirit, harsh tactics may
be needed to move some
people to be saved.
Are you standing in the way
of your companion or child-
ren? Remember, this may be
true without you or your
family knowing it.
So, as you watch the world
go by, steer your footsteps
toward God. Those you love
and who love you may be
waiting to follow you.
Yes'm, Everyone SHOULD!

about the big bargain Nancy
Reagan found in the bowl for
the Prince and Lady Diana.
Sorry, but Mrs. Reagan said

large discount was given
because it was from the
United States. I guess Mrs.
Reagan got the credit because
she is known for buying

the vase, also a pack of
matches, string, a screw, you
name it and it went into this
lovely vase. Two years ago I

the things out and washed it. I
did not realize how beautiful it
was. I took it and had it
appraised. I just about passed

WE HAVE US a new doctor to keep.
I know it, because of the signs I see.
Several months ago, Dr. Eulogio
(call him Eli) Vizcarra, the Philippine
Phlash, came to Port St. Joe to serve in
sideline, with his sizeable practice
taking the major portion of his time.
Eli is a small man with a big love
for practicing medicine. I was talking
to him the other day and asked him how
he could work the schedule he does. "I
like what I'm doing," he said. I don't
think he likes to practice medicine to
the point where he would pay you to get
to heal your ills, but he likes it! He'd
stay a while and then pack up and
leave. They couldn't get rich in less
than a year, so they sought greener
Eli is different. He is here to stay.
There's no doubt about it.
The other day I caught him eating
supper at the oyster bar at Florida Boy
Seafood. He has now become a raw
oyster eater, so we have him for good.
I WAS READING the Chiefland
Citizen, owned and published by my
friend and former employee, Walter
Wilson, the other day and he was
Walter must be getting old; he has
taken to reminiscing often here of late.
Walter was reminiscing about the
old days of the hot lead method of
building a newspaper each week. He
was mostly remembering the heat and
the hard nasty work of the method now
If you had ever gone through it, you
would have no trouble remembering.
Walter was wondering what made
otherwise sane people go through this
agony on a weekly basis for a bare
existence to a mediocre living. It was
long hard work and not many weekly
publishers are still around who don't
remember almost a weekly ritual of
working most of the night on Wednes-
day to get the paper in the mail.
I remember the sun coming up
more than a few times on a Thursday
morning. I didn't rightly know if it ever
came up the other days of the week or
not. It could have come up at 2 o'clock
in the morning and I would not have
known the difference. '
The few kind words and
seeming eagerness of people to
their hands on the paper Thursday
must have been the tonic which kept us
going in those days.
The process is confining and work
enough as it is now with electronic
machines, cameras and high speed
presses to get the job done.
Things change and we get accus-
tomed to them. Now, we fuss and fume
if we go beyond 5:30 on a Wednesday
without having the week's edition
There is enough hurry, work and
sweat on the days prior to Wednesday
to make us remember what use to be
and the paper still has to go into the
mails every Thursday, reminding us
that we can't drag around too much,
even with a computer typesetter, which
will spit out type at an unbelievable
rate and doesn't need us to melt up the
first bar of type metal to feed it.

Immunization against seven diseases will be
required for all Florida school children-kinder-
garten through 12th grade public and non-public
schools and public preschools-by a new law
signed July 2 by Gov. Bob Graham.
Under the old law, only those children
entering school for the first time were required
to show proof of immunity against polio,
diphtheria, measles, rubella, whooping cough,
mumps and tetanus. ,
Dr. James T. Howell, state health officer and
director of the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services Health Program Office,
described the new law as "model legislation."
"At last we can effectively control and
possibly eliminate the transmission of commun-
icable diseases in our school population," he
Howell noted that Florida currently ac-
counts for about one-sixth of all measles cases in
the U.S., due mainly to infections being brought
in by tourists.

HOW TO TRACK A HURRICANE
Advisories are numbered consecutively for each b .
storm, and describe the present and forecast posi-
tion and storm intensity. Advisories are issued at
six-hour intervals-at 11 p.m., 5 a.m., 11 a.m. and 5
p.m. Bulletins provide additional information.
Each message gives the name, eye position, inten-
sity and forecast movement of the tropical
Hurricane eye positions are given by latitude (for
example: 13.2 degrees North) and longitude (for
example: 57.8 degrees West), to the nearest one-
tenth of one degree. When the storm moves within
radar range, eye position may also be given as
statute miles and compass direction from a
When you receive an advisory, note the number,
eye position, intensity and forecast direction of
movement in the table. Then mark the eye position
on the tracking chart. Because hurricanes change
direction very quickly, you should concentrate
more on where the storm will go than where it has

State insurance Commis-
sioner Bill Gunter this week
ordered Florida's Workers'
compensation insurers to give
the state's employers no less
than a $156 million rate
reduction effective July 1,
Gunter told a news confer-
ence here that his order would
reduce new and renewal
premium payments of
Florida's 108,500 employers by
no less than 15.6 percent.
Although that is an average
savings of $1,438 per employ-
er, Gunter said the typical
employer who pays a $700
annual premium would save
About two-thirds of Flori-
da's employers pay premiums
of $1,000 or less. About 26
percent pay from $1,000 to
$5,000 and the remaining eight
percent pay more than $5,000.
"In other words, the range
of savings extends from less
than $100 for smaller employ-
ers to the tens of thousands of
dollars for our state's largest
employers," Gunter explain-

Swimming activities abound
this summer, and Scouts and
leaders in the Gulf Coast
Council, Boy Scouts of Ameri-
ca, are urging observance of
safe swimming practices to
make these activities enjoy-
able for everyone.
S"Swimming always should
be done in pairs," said Dr. Clif
Payne, Council Health and
Safety Chairman. "This is
known as the buddy system
and should be used by young
people and adults alike. Your
buddy is there to help you
should. you have any difficulty
while in the water."
"By observing these basic
safety precautions, we hope to
avoid unnecessary swimming
tragedies during the summer
months," Payne said.

Several weeks ago, the Port
St. Joe Police Department
came under criticism by
Lloyd Pitts, foreman at the
Hess Oil installation. Pitts
claimed a police officer was
called to evict a trespasser at
the Hess docks and the officer
went after a complaint for
Pitts to sign before he would
evict the trespasser.
The officer, James McGee,
told the Commission Tuesday
night he went for the com-
plaint form because there
were five people in the area
and Pitts asked that only one
be evicted. "I knew I could
evict the trespasser without a
complaint form", McGee said,
"but since there were five
people there and the two
parties involved were fussing
at one another, I went for the
complaint in case there were
any repercussions later."

Attendance at Florida state
parks remained about the
same during the fiscal year
ending June 30 as for the
previous year. Some 11.5
million persons visited the
sites during both years, ac-
cording to figures released by

generally sluggish national
economy is primarily respon-
sible for the static attendance.
During the past six months,
visitation dropped slightly,
from 6,311,474 during the first
six months of 1980 to 6,201,542
- a decline of 1.7 percent.

declined two'percent during
the fiscal year, with 1,152,970
overnight guests staying at
the 39 parks with camping
areas compared to 1,182,158
campers during 1979-1980.
An increase of 6 percent was
reported for 56 parks and
recreation areas where at-
tendance is estimated on
sample traffic counts. Visita-
tion increased from 5,009,227
for 1979-1980 to 5,307,494 for
