Giant Port Project Struggles Back toLife


St. Joe Paper Company Offer of Loan Revives Engineering Study Plans


J. C. Belin, President of St. Joe
Paper Company, breathed new life into
the port project, long under considera-
tion for Port St. Joe, Monday, when he
pledged to loan the Port St. Joe Port
Authority $250,000 to get the engineer-
ing work underway.
George Tapper, chairman of the
Port Authority, and the prime mover in
the huge port development plans which
have been in the making for the past
two years paid, "This is just what we
needed. We have been working for the
past year to come up with the funds to
get this engineering started. Once it is


started, we are in the ball game."
Tapper had called a meeting of the
Port Authority along with representa-
tives of the City and County Commis-
sion Monday afternoon to tell them that
through a comedy of errors, plans for
financing the study through a short-
term bond sale had fallen through and it
was necessary to start the process all
over again. "That's before I met with
Jake Belin this morning"; Tapper said.
"After putting the problem to him, he
agreed for the Paper Company to lend
the Port Authority the money to get the
engineering work and permit work out


of the way. Then there will be no
problem selling bonds to construct the
port."
Tapper said he had already started
working with a New York banking firm,
for financing when the offer from Belin'
was made. "We might still get the bank.
to underwrite our line of credit for up to
$35 million as early as next week, but
with the Paper Company offer, we are'
off and running after two years of near.'
frustration."
In addition to this news, Tapper had
representatives of the Apalachee Re-
gional Planning Council present who


outlined a project by which the City and
County can both apply for economic
development grants of up to $500,000,
with half of the money to go for the port.
Ed Leuch, executive director for ARPC
and Donald Johnson, a planner for the
agency, said they would make applica-
tions for the grants in the name of the
County and the City of Port St. Joe if the
governing bodies would make an
official request for them to do so.
Leuch said the county and city
would have a good chance at the
development grants if they acted
quickly before a mid-September plan-


ning session at which dispensers of the
government money would advise cities
and counties throughout the state how
to make applications. "If we act
immediately, we will stand a good
chance to get the grants".
Tapper said he had even gone to the
owner of the old port property between
Hess Oil and St. Joe Paper Company, to
try and purchase this property to get a
chicken and fish processing, freezing
and shipping facility underway almost
immediately, but had been informed
the property had already been sold to a
firm to put in a grain elevator. A group


of agricultural-men in South Georgia
had an option on the property for the
elevator about two years ago, but the
deal fell through when overseas grain
shipments fell off with the Russian
embargo.
Tapper also said money was still
available for a new high-rise bridge
across the Gulf County Canal al
Highland View as soon as a port project
is underway.
With the engineering money noa
pledged by St. Joe Paper, the project
should be in the making in a short time


FPC Is Still Planning



To Locate Generating Plant In Gulf County


Florida Power Corporation re-affirmed
Tuesday, to the Gulf County Commission, that
the next power generating station the utility
builds will be in Gulf County near White City.
Rusty Wooten, a representative of the firm
told the Commission that although FPC had no
firm plans to begin building a generating plant at


the present, the firm is still making plans to build
their next plant in the White City area.
-Wooten told the board, "We have completed
our environmental study, we have chosen the
site, but we have no firm plans to build at this
immediate time." Wooten pointed out that FPC
had the proposed new plant in its plansior the

next 10 years, but power use reductions through
conservation in the past year or two has altered
their plans.
"While we have no plans now to complete the
plant within the next 10 years, that doesn't mean
it won't be started in the next 10 years." Wooten
pointed out that it takes over three years just to
get such a plant licensed. He also pointed out that
the State of Florida plans for conservation calls
for little increase in load forecast for the 1980's.
"We know we are going to need another power
plant, whether it's from the continued growth in
Florida or replacing present plants. When this
plant is built, it will be built here in Gulf
County", he said.
Wooten said FPC was anticipating a need for
another power plant to be completed around
1991. He said the firm would probably firm up
plans as to a starting date for the new plant
within the nexttwo years..
Carl Weilqnd, Manager of Generation
Planning for FPC said the overwhelming reason
for choosing Gulf County for their new plant site
was trsportation costs. The water transporta-
tion available here in Gulf County allows the
firm t# bring coal down the Mississippi and
through the inland waterway or in sea-going
barges to Port St. Joe to fuel the plant. "This
would make our transportation costs consider-
ably cheaper than by rail and competitive with a
proposed slurry coal pipeline planned for Florida
during the early 1990's.
Weiland added to what Wooten said by
pointing out that people were still going to use
more and more electricity and Florida was going
to grow. "We will need more power in the
future", he said. "In addition to growth, people
are not spending the money on home renovations
to save fuel. This will also call for more power
generation."
The FPC representatives came to Port St.
.Joe to reaffirm their intentions in the face of
rumors which have been circulating to the
contrary lately.


At Last... DOT Will Resurface Highway 71


Gulf County will receive two
primary road paving projects,
with both projects to start by
January of 1982, according to


Representative Leonard Hall
in a news release this week.
After several years of effort
on the part of Gulf County's


Commission and Commissions
from the City of Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka, Repre-
sentative Hall said about 11.4


miles of State Road 71, from
Cypress Creek to Pine Street
in Wewahitchka is due for
re-surfacing. Representative


Hospital Board's Decision


Near On Recommendation for Hospital Purchase


The Boqrd of Directors of
Municipal Hospital are now
only about a week away from
making a decision on which
company they will recom-
mend as potential purchasers
of Municipal Hospital. The
final decision as to whether or
not the institution will be sold
willbe left up to an expression
of the citizens of Port St. Joe,
but the board will recommend
that the hospital be sold and
will recommend their choice
of a purchaser in the next few


days.
The Board cut off bids for
the hospital Tuesday night at
their regular meeting, after
hearing the tentative bid of
Baptist Medical Center of
Jacksonville. The BMC cor-
poration's bid is the third offer
to be made.
During the past week, in
their initial contact with Bap-
tist Medical Center last Fri-
day, the Board learned they
hada responsibility to repay a
portion of the building depre-


ciation to Medicare, which
will be the responsibility of
Municipal to pay. The figure
owed Medicare will include a
portion of all Medicare funds
received by the Hospital since
1965 and has not been accur-
ately defined yet. Estimates
are that the payment will total
between $125,000 and $150,000.
The other two bidders had
not told the City of this
responsibility, with one, U.S.
Health Corporation, saying
they were unaware of the


Vandals Slash Car Tires, Tops


Vandals have inflicted more
than $1,000 worth of damage to
automobiles in Port St. Joe,
according to Police Chief Roy
Robinson.
The vandals made a sweep
&LuP Long Avenue Monday
~lght, slashing tires, cutting
chunks out of vinyl tops,
slashing seats and breaking
off radio antennas, according
to Robinson.
The Police Chief said nine


instances of vandalism have
already been reported and
there are probably some
which have not been reported.
The vandals made a sweep in
the same area some three
weeks ago, slashing several
tires and vinyl tops.
Robinson said so far, there
have been reports received on
two car tops slashed, two had
seats slashed, two antennas
broken off and five cars with
tires slashed.


Robinson said his depart-
ment and the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department are in-
vestigating the vandalism.
Wandell Butler, who had a
chunk cut out of the vinyl top
of his Lincoln Continental, has
put up a $300 cash reward for
information leading to the
arrest and conviction of the
vandals. Butler said, "Any
other victims who wish to add
to the reward are welcome to
do so."


responsibility.
The responsibility to Medi-
care is because the offer price
for Municipal, $1 million, is a
$600,000 book profit for the
City of Port St. Joe for the
hospital purchase. The oiigi-
nal hospital cost $100,000 and a
$300,000 addition was made in
the middle 50's, putting Muni-
cipal on the books at $400,000.
Baptist's tentative offer was
put on paper and presented to
the Board Tuesday night,
offering' the same purchase
price as the other two bidders,
U.S. Health Corp., and Sunbelt
Corp., a division of the Sev-
enth Day Adventist Church.
Baptist, like Sunbelt, want-
ed to pay a substantial down
payment of $384,000 and $21,-
300 per year for 20 years.
Sunbelt, the other bidder
wanting to pay over a period
of time, offered $300,000 down
and $100,000 per year for seven
years at 10 percent interest.
Baptist's offer said nothing
about interest on the balance,
and the Board will negotiate
with Baptist on this item.
Basically. the other portions

Hall said the project should be
let to a contractor in January.
The second project will be
re-surfacing on U.S. Highway
98 at the Highland View
Bridge. The project will reb-
build the approaches to the
bridge.
This project should be let in
October of this year.
Representative Hall said the
Department of Transportation
has verified that the two
paving projects have been
approved for bidding.

Lot of Use


THE STAR


PAGE TWO THURSDAY, AUG. 13, 1981


You never know how people are
going to accept things Every so
often, delegations come before the
county and city government wanting
something done for use by the
public. Sometimes, after the project
is finished, people get disinterested
in the activity and quit using it, or,
as is the case with the parks in our
:city and county, they are vandalized
to the point where they can't be
.used.
SOne of these vandalized places is
:the boat landing at the end of Road
22 in Wewahitchka on the Apalachi-
-cola River. The county has a nice
.park there, with picnic facilities, a
jiice boat landing, parking space and
restroom facilities.
We were there recently and
found there was not a light bulb in
-the fixtures. They were not broken
-~t, they were taken out. County
officials say they can put in bulbs
one day and they will all be gone the
]next.
'- Other acts of vandalism at the
p :rk limits the use of what could be
: a nice place for a picnic, boating or
-outing.
S It's a pity people can't take care
of things put there for their
enjoyment.
This is just one example of many
such activities throughout the coun-
-ty.

The City of Port St. Joe should
- have pride and more than a little
sense of security over the designa-
t ion of the City's water treatment
system as the "Plant of the Year"
by the Department of Environmen-
tal Regulation last week. The DER
doesn't hand these kind words out in
a wholesale fashion. They are one of
the more critical groups in the State
of Florida and it's no small matter to
receive such approval from that
agency.
There are many places in this
world where a person can't get a
drink of pure water without some
hesitation as to what illness they will
suffer from the water. There are
even many places on earth where
water is not even available at the
twist of a faucet.
Bad water has probably caused
more disease and death in man's
history than any other thing. To see
that doesn't happen in Florida, a
treatment plant is probably the most
regulated operation in the state. It is
tested daily and there is no delay in


City of Port St. Joe pooled their
efforts and built a quarter-mile
running track here in the city, with
the private citizens doing the
planning, laying out and much of the
labor to build the track. The School
Board furnished the land, the county
hauled clay and helped with the
asphalt and the City furnished labor,
hauled dirt and did its part in
building the track.
The track has gone over like
gangbusters, with people using it
every day and most of every night,
to walk, jog, roller skate and
skateboard on.
Almost every evening as the
temperature begins to go down,
there is a regular social gathering at
the track as those wishing a little
unhurried exercise flock to the
track. It becomes a regular neigh-
borhood of joggers, walkers and
exercisers as they meet to enjoy
what is there without having to face
the dogs, cars, bicycles, etc., which
make doing these things on the
streets and sidewalks something of a
hazard.
That's what it was put there for
and it is a pleasure to see it being
used in the proper manner.
Old and young alike have a place
of recreation where they can meet in
an uncrowded situation. If we can
keep the vandals away, it should be
a source of much enjoyment for
years to come.

receiving the attention of DER if the
water doesn't come up to specifica-
tions.
Much of Florida is faced today,
with drought and a growing popula-
tion which is rapidly making pure
drinking water a premium in many
places. Salt water intrusion and the
falling water table is causing many
communities .and metropolitan
areas to go to extreme lengths to see
the people have an adequate supply
which meets the purity standards.
The City of Port St. Joe has just
recently re-built its water treatment
plant to insure a continuous and high
quality supply of, water. There is
considerably more to getting you a
glass of water than just turning the
spigot. It requires a lot of Work by
several people and constant atten-
tion to see that it is properly treated
and delivered to you.
We ought to appreciate what we
have and be thankful it is good
enough to be rated as the best in this
part of the state.


Watching the World Go By




Tax Cut Is Fair for Everyone


Adolph Bedsole
An Associated Press news
story on Monday, August 3,
1981, is distorted in its ap-
praisal of the tax-cut plan
about to be approved by the
Senate and the House.
The bottom line of this bill is
a PERMANENT tax-rate r--
duction in each of three
successive years.
"When fully implemented,
the reduction would average
25 percent with the same
percentage reef going to all
income groups," says the AP
news story.
But they hasten to add this
word-"Tax relief in the legis-
lation is tilted considerably
toward those with incomes of
$50,000 a year or more."
A typical four-member fam-
ily with two wage-earners is
pictured in 1984 with a $20,000
income. Presently, this family
would pay $2,013 in taxes but
under the new tax-cut plan the
family would receive a tax cut
of $544. The $50,000 family
which now pays $9,323 will get
a tax-cut of $2,570.
The AP news story fails to


point out that the $20,000
family pays only 10 percent of
its income in taxes while the
$50,000 family pays 16 percent
of its income in taxes. The
$50,000 family is now paying
almost five times as much in
taxes as the $20,000 family
BUT with only 2 times the
income.
It may sound a little con-
fusing but the people need to
absorb and digest the facts
before us so that we will not be
misled in our thinking.
On a-percentage basis, the
$20,000 family will receive
approximately a 2.7 percent
reduction in taxes while the
$50,000 family will receive a
cut of approximately 5.1 per-
cent. Since the higher income
family is already paying six
percent more than the lower
income family, it just about
balances out.
A desperate effort has been
made by the liberal politicians
and press to defeat or dis-
credit this tax-cut plan by
saying it soaks the poor and
salves the rich. A casual look
at the cut of $544 for the lower


income family and the $2,570
cut for the higher income
family might lead one to this
conclusion.
Probably, those who de--
signedthistax-cut plan do not
even realize it but the basic
foundation plan is patterned
after the Biblical principle of
tithing-whether one's income
is high or low, 10 percent of
that income belongs to the
Lord. Nothing could be more
fair or equitable than the tithe.
Likewise, nothing could be
more fair or equitable in a tax
cut program than that the
same percentage relief should
go to all income groups.
Since I am not in the high
income group, I certainly
have nothing to protect or gain
in this position. But I will be
content for the higher income
family to get the same per-
centage relief that I get
because I know he is paying a
higher percentage now than I
am paying.
Something has occurred to
me! Since the Bible teaches
that ALL the tithe belongs to
the Lord, I don't believe


people will benefit from tithes
withheld from God. Some say
God will get the tithe one way
or another. God doesn't need
it. So, perhaps, God is allow-
ing the government to collect
and use tithes in the form of
taxes.
The Bible calls not paying
tithes to the cause of the Lord


on earth-robbing Godtl Tax-
payers often call taxes rob-
bing the people. So, we have a
case here of the robbers
getting robbed. ,J
So, as you watch the worli
go by, don't be misled by
superficial appraisals of a fair
and equitable tax-cut plan-or
of tithing!


Letters to the Editor


Branson Writes Again


Editor:
Good or bad, President
Reagan's "new deal" is going
into effect. It is almost a direct
reversal of President Roose-
velt's "new deal" of the 30's.
What it means is big busi-
ness is given free reign to do
what they will. Simply stated,
it means "hands off". This is
seen with the removal of the
windfall profit tax. There is
also a trend to remove polu-
tion standards.
Can this "new deal" work?
Yes, if we keep our hand on


the brake. In our government,
we' have certain checks and
balances. One party tends to
check the other. Congressman
Earl Hutto should be the
Democrat's brake against ex-
tremes from Republican legis-
lation.
Congressman Earl Hutto
took his hands off the brake in
voting for the "new deal". In
fact, in doing so, he took the
whip in hand for a few licks.
Let's see if we have a runaway
now.

You Can't Earn the Big Bucks Without Stress and Responsibilities


, I'M TRYING TO make up my mind
who I feel the sorriest for . the
baseball players or the air controllers.
Both seem to have a problem
making ends meet on a salary which
most people in our society today would
like to be accustomed to getting each
and every week.
-'' The baseball players are staving
off starvation on their $100,000 plus
annual salaries by signing a contract
and going back to work just two months
before they are scheduled to go on their
annual six month vacation.
The air controllers, making an
average of about $32,000 a year, just
can't work under those conditions and
for that kind of money, so many of them
Should rather be out of a job than suffer
through such indignities as 32 grand a
Year. They want $10,000 more.
It's stressful work, the controllers
say. The stress is driving them to drink,
the psychiatrists couch and early
retirement. All the compensation for
such a situation is a measly $32,000 for
which they feel discriminated against.
Pity, pity.
I don't fly much, but when I think of
the times I have flown, putting my life


in the hands of people who make
judgements like the controllers have
made, it makes my skin crawl. The
sight of some of the controllers in the
newspapers and on TV haven't helped




ETA01





much either.
Talk about your stress ... I have it
now. Maybe I could get a reduction on
my airline ticket the next time I buy
one, in order to make up for the stress
of placing my skin in the hands of such
people.
WHO ISN'T SURROUNDED by
stress every day? I heard one striking
controller being interviewed on WWL
radio the other day complaining that


most controllers never reach retire-
ment age (he said). Most take medical
retirement brought on by the stress of
the job (he said, again). Explaining
how the stress was getting to him


personally, he replied he knew he was
being affected by the job because he felt
all rested and refreshed after a two
week vacation. Who wouldn't?
+++
IF WE START paying premium
wages for stress of the type being
suffered by the air controllers, we' are
going to open a big can of worms.
The next thing you know, the school
teachers will want $42,000 a year for


teaching. Policemen are apt to want
more than that, since they risk their
own necks each and every day. At least
the controllers are only risking the
necks of other people. Service station











attendants (if there are any left) will be
next in line, since what could be much
more dangerous or stressful than
messing with highly volatile gasoline?
Nurses will be asking for theirs, since
they flirt with the death of other people
every day. One even got killed, herself,
in Chattahoochee's state hospital re-
cently.
Air controllers have no monopoly
on stressful situations and occupations.


What about all of us automobile
drivers? When each of us step into our
car, we are flirting with one of the
greatest causes of death in the world.
Should we insist on the government
paying each of us drivers a $10,000
premium each year to ease our stress
experienced on a crowded freeway or a
busy rural highway?
+++
TALK ABOUT YOUR stress. The
clerk in the bank doesn't make
anywhere near $32,000 a year, but he or
she doesn't ask for an additional $10,000
a year for stress pay. In this day and
time, with bank clerks, convenience
food store operators and other busines-
ses which handle large sums of money
being held up, killed and robbed every
day in every part of the country, what
could be more stressful than consider-
ing every customer who walks up to the
counter as a potential robber and
killer?
Going to the bathroom is stressful.
There might be somebody already in
there ahead of you.
Getting in the bathtub is stressful.


Most accidents around the home occur
in and around the bathtub.
Even going fishing has its moments
of stress. Did you ever get way up the
river and have your motor refuse to
start so you can come home?
+++
EVERY VOCATION HAS its mo-
ments of stress, some of them even life
threatening. Most people handle them
without unreasonable demands being
made. It has been a long time since
anybody working at a salary in this
country has ever asked for a $10,000
raise. Ten percent, I could see, or even
some relief in working conditions, but
reaching for the moon just because one
is in the sky business is going farther
than most people can support.
I go along with what some of the
strikers said after President Reagan
said they no longer had a job. They
decided they would just go out and get
another job rather than work under the
conditions they had to. That's the thing
to do. If they look hard they might find a
job with no stress or responsibilitity,
but it darn sure doesn't pay $32,000 a
year.

About Budget

iles, a visit to Port St. Joe Tuesday house at the St. Joseph Bay
paid at noon, and spoke to a full Country Club, indicating that
he was expecting some stiff
opposition to his bid for
re-election next year and he
was getting ready.
Showing off a new pair of
walking shoes he had pur-
chased for the campaign,
Chiles said, "My opponents
J had better bring their lunch
because I'm going to be after
my job. I feel I and other
Democrats have been placed
I on the endangered species list
in this campaign."
Chiles spent most of his 30
S minute address talking about
the nation's budget. The Sena-
tor said he voted for President
Reagan's budget plan to give
the President's plan a chance.
"The Democratic plan didn't
work, so maybe this new plan
will", he remarked.The Sena-
tor said he was also one of the
authors of a bill.which will
attempt to control spending in
the nation. He pointed out that
nearly 75 percent of the
nation's budget is locked in to
programs and formulas which
would perpetuate them. "We
are going to try and regain
some control over these lock-
ed in budgets", he said.
Chiles said the purpose of
the proposed tax cut, while it
is not exactly in the manner he
would have preferred, is de-
signed to stimulate the econ-
omy enough to make up the

a deficit and if the cuts don't
stimulate business enough to

need for the President and the
finance committee to get
together, and work up a

AILABLE DAILY FROM OUR NAPA concern over the heavy drug
traffic which is going through
Florida. He said he is asking

in a manner which will rebuild
confidence in the retirement
system.
He said the real problem in
the system will arise about
2010 when the crop of "war
babies" reaches retirement
age. "By 2010, there will be
only two workers supporting
each retiree in 2010. "With
fewer coming into the work
force and more retiring, Soc-
ial Security needs a major
overhaul to keep the system


viable", Chiles said.
He reported present mpa-
sures being undertaken will
make the system sound again
by 1986, but the spectre of 2010
still presents a major prob-
lem.
Chiles said he would urge
delaying of retirement age,
encourage a voluntary delay
in retirement by removing the
need to pay Social Security at
age 65 and would remove the
penalty for working after age
65.


Gunter Defends



Excess Profits Law


Retention of Florida's auto-
mobile insurance no-fault re-
forms and excess profits laws
on automobile and workers'
compensation insurance head
the list of priorities submitted
to the Legislature by State
Insurance Commissioner Bill
Gunter.
"I want those within and
outside the industry alike to
know that this Department
will vigorously and aggres-
sively defend Florida's no-
fault and excess profits laws
with equal fervor," Gunter
told a Tallahassee press con-
ference.
"They are the one-two
punch that allows the Insu-
ance Commissioner of Florida
to keep the lid on costs and
insure that unforeseen excess
profits are shared with policy-
holders," he said.
Gunter said that Florida has
"the finest and toughest"
no-fault law in the country. He
said that reforms enacted in
1976 and 1978 "stabilized a
pyramiding system of higher
rates atop still higher rates
that became nothing short of a
national scandal."
The Commissioner said that
the average premium for
private passenger automobile
insurance in Florida dropped
five percent between 1977 and
1980 while rising 20 percent
nationwide. He further stated
that the reforms cut down on
the number of lawsuits and led
to quicker claims settlements
reaching injured victims.
Gunter lauded the recent
Florida Supreme Court deci-
sion upholding the excess
profits law on automobile
insurance and said it would be
applied fairly and equitably on
an annual basis.
"I know from talking to
consumers throughout the
state that no. single law has
done more to restore confi-
dence and fairness in the
pricing of automobile insur-
ance," he said. He added that
the first excess profits test on
moneys paid by employers for
workers' compensation insur-
ance would be conducted in
1982.
Other key issues raised in
the Department's Sunset pro-
posals submitted to House and
Senate legislative committees
include:
"Phantom" Vehicle Crack-
Down. Gunter said there was a
growing criminal trade in
Florida by individuals who


insure nonexisting vehicles
and then file a claim for loss or
damage.
"We propose that com-
panies through their agents be
required to spot check at least
10 percent of all private
passenger, nonfleet motor ve-
hicles which are to be insured
for the first time," Gunter
said.
AGENCY LICENSING.The
Department renewed its effort
to require insurance agencies
as well as individual insur-
ance agents to be licensed and
come under the disciplinary
provisions of the Florida In-
surance Code. "Fraudulent
practices by owners of insur-
ance agencies who are not
licensed but operate through
licensed agents makes this
goal a legislative priority,"
said Gunter. .
BLUE CROSS-BLUE
SHIELD AND AUTO INSUR-
ANCE RATEMAKING. Gun-
ter objected to an industry
proposal to eliminate the
Department's prior approval
authority over Blue Cross-
Blue Shield rates and another
plan to abolish the separate
rating section in the Code for
motor vehicle insurance. "The
practical effect in both in-
stances would be to make it
more difficult to challenge
rate hikes," Gunter said.
LIFE INSURANCE. Gunter
urged that the higher industry
income resulting from sub-
stantial changes in the reserve
and cash value requirements
imposed on life insurance
companies be shared with
consumers through mandated
lower premium charges.
FINES. The Department
objected to an industry pro-
posal preventing the levying
of a fine for a nonwillful
violation of the Code for which
restitution plus payment of
interest is made.
COMPANY AUDITING.
The Department opposes the
industry proposal to eliminate
the requirement that domestic
insurance companies be
examined not less frequently
than once every three years.
NEW BORN COVERAGE.
Gunter objected to an insur-
ance industry proposal to
require consumers to notify
their health care provider of a
birth within 31 days lr face
loss of coverage for ihe child
after the 31st day.
HANDICAPPED DRIV-
ERS. Gunter also objected to


an industry proposal to loosen
up on a statute preventing
discrimination against the
handicapped in the purchase
of automobile insurance.
OUT-OF-STATE GROUPS.
The Department proposed re-
quiring companies that sell
health and disability insur-
ance from out-of-state meet
the same requirements includ-
ing coverage standards im-
posed on domestic firms.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, AUG. 13, 1981


August Is Month for Varietyof



Easy-to-Do Gardening Chores


August is a rough month for
gardening in Florida. It's too
S late to plant many summer
flowers and too early for
winter varieties. And further-
more, it's just too darn hot to
spend all day slaving in the
yard. But don't despair, there
are plenty of easy jobs left to
do. Here's a potpourri of
easy-to-do garden chores.
Roses grow quite large in
South Florida and a late
August pruning is recom-
mended. Remove healthy top
growth as well as twigs and
branches that are dead, di-
seased, injured, unsightly or
thin and spindly. Shorten main
canes and lateral branches
removing small twigs and
some of the oldest canes.
Leave at least half the length
of each main cane that is one
to three years old. The first
flowers can be expected eight
to nine weeks after pruning.
If you're growing mums or
poinsettias for winter color,
this is the last month you
should pinch these plants to
increase blooms. Pinching
back the stem tips will pro-
mote heavier flowering be-
cause of increased branching.
But, if you wait too late,
pinching will remove flower
buds and thus reduce flowers
this fall.
It's also about time to begin
disbudding camellias to in-
crease flower size. As soon as
you can distinguish the round-
ed flower buds from the
pointed vegetative bud, twist
offall but one of the flower
buds at each tip. Be careful
not to injure the remaining
bud which should develop into
a larger flower. Sasanquas
and japonicas which are
prized for multi blooms, need


not be pinched.
Common ornamentals like
oleander, hydrangeas and a-
zaleas can be propagated by
cuttings this time of year. For
azaleas, take tip cuttings
three to five inches long with
several leaves left attached.
Many rooting mediums can be
used such as sand or a mixture
of peat and perlite. Place the
cuttings in the media and keep


.


moist by covering with a
plastic bag or use a mist
system. 'A rooting hormone
may hasten root growth. If
you have any cold sensitive
ornamentals, try rooting cut-
tings before winter and keep
the young plants in a protected
spot this winter. Then, if the
ornamental freezes, you'll
have replacements for the
.spring.


If you want to plant things
this time of year, try bulbs of
Louisiana iris, gingers, cri-
nums, daylilies, amaryllis and
zephyr lilies. Of course, you
can still plant woody orna-
mentals, but hurry up so that
they'll be well established
before the winter arrives.
If you intend to plant winter
annuals like Baby's Breath,
calendulas or pansies, start


ordering your seed and pre-
paring the flower beds.
Keep watching for insects of
lawns and ornamentals.
chinch bugs and mole crickets
are very active on lawns and
white flies, scales, aphids, and
caterpillars are damaging or-
namentals.
There's lots of other activi-
ties you can think of, but these
will keep you busy for a while.

Japanese Coming Here to



Look for Fish to Purchase


Japan's fishing industry has
dispatched a group of fisheries
experts to the United States in
an effort to assist the export
development of the U.S. fish-
ing industry.
Part of this search for
export fish products will take
place right here in Port St.
Joe, as the Japanese delega-
tion meets with Raffield Fish-
eries of Port St. Joe, an
exporter of seafood for several
years, in an effort to boost
Japan's seafood imports.
The Japanese delegation is
scheduled to be here in Port
St. Joe area, August 16
through 18, when they will also
visit fishing operations in
Panama City and Mobile,
Alabama as well.


Raffield went to Japan on a
seafood trade delegation a few
years ago. His firm was
exporting products caught
from the Gulf of Mexico at
that time. Raffield said his
trade with the Japanese has
grown since that time.
The group consists of ex-
perts in fish harvesting, pro-
cessing, marketing and trade.
The mission has been organiz-
ed by the Japan Fisheries
Association in conjunction
with the Japan Deep Sea
Trawlers Association, the
Japan Hokoten Trawlers As-
sociation and the Pacific
Longliners-Gillnetters Assoc-
iation. They will be meeting
with U.S. fishermen and pro-
cessors over the next three


weeks in the Atlantic, Gulf of
Mexico and Pacific fisheries
regions. The program is being
conducted in-cooperation with
the National Marine Fisheries
Service, as well as participa-
tion by Sea Grant Marine
Fishery Advisory Services,
state officials and University
Extension Service agents.
The Japanese fishery trade
development .team win see
samples of underutilized fish
and fish products which can be
harvested and-or processed in
commercial quantities. The
team will analyze the com-
mercial potential of each
product and will order sample
quantities of those which have
commercial possibilities for a
test marketing program to be


Carried out in Japan.
The test marketing program
will be carried out in Japanese
fish markets, restaurants,
foodservice establishments
and processing facilities.

of the three offers are the
same. All maintain excellent
hospital operations.
The Board now has the
responsibility of deciding
which firm the Board feels
would be more compatible
with Port St. Joe, offer the
best medical care and provide
the most diversified medical
care for the city.


DER Says Palm Leaf

. Gazebo Has to Go
A A group of young people have this palm frond gazebo at
con Hill on the endangered list by the Department of
Environmental Regulation. The young people built the
gazebo at Beacon Hill with the approval of the property
owners as a place to get in out of the sun at their week end
volley ball games. DER has said they must tear it down
within a week because it is built inside the construction
set-back line on the beach. The gazebo is not a permanent
structure and there are other palm frond sheds, on the beach,
but DER says this one mast come down or the builders face a
$1,000 a day fine. --Star photo

Immigration Policy
The United States has had a.
long tradition of welcoming.
immigrants to its shores with
S open arms. However, in recent
[ers, the influx of immigrants
ering our country has
I calated to a crisis level. In
1980 alone, over two million
refugees crossed our borders,
and between one and one-and-
a-half million of these people
entered illegally. This problem
results in serious consequences
for both the immigrants and
United States citizens. These il-
S legal aliens often find
themselves working in "sweat-
S shop" conditions, unprotected
by U.S. labor laws. We can feel
the impact of this influx of im-
migrants in strained commun-
ity services and added prob-
lems in the job market.
In an attempt to address
this serious problem, President
Reagan established a task force
to review existing immigration
practices and recommend ways
to strengthen current immigra-
tion laws and programs. This
task force announced its policy
recommendations on July
30th. In general, these policies
include measures designed to
deal with the arrival of un-
documented aliens by sea, the
general illegal alien problem,
legal immigration, and refugee
and asylum benefits.
Several of these proposals
are particularly noteworthy in
their direct impact on Florida,

including the First District. For
instance, the Administration
proposes the strengthening of
existing authority for the in-
terception and forfeiture of
vessels used in violation of our
laws. Since this would include
vessels carrying additional im-
migrants, this measure could
help alleviate one serious prob-
lem. In addition, the establish-
ment of holding centers for
immigrants and the reimburse-
ment of state and local govern-
ment expenditures resulting
from an "emergency" mass
immigration situation has been
proposed. Obviously, this
could be of prime importance
to Florida, as a vast number of
these immigrants have been
settling here. Lastly, the Ad-
ministration proposes sanc-
tions against employers who
knowingly hire illegal aliens.
This measure would aid in
keeping the job market open to
those United States citizens
who desire to work.
Now, at long last, a new
immigration policy has been
announced with which the
Congress can work. Although
this policy does have flaws, I
feel confident that, with refine-
ment, it can be molded into
one which will effectively help
to alleviate the problem of il-
legal immigrants.

County



In Fede:


Ed Leuchs, director of the
Apalachee Regional Planning
Council and Don Johnson, a
member of the Council staff,
were successful Tuesday in
persuading the County Com-
mission to change priorities in
its block grant request to
divert some of their request to
funding for construction of a
new port here in Port St. Joe.
The County had applied for
a grant of $500,000 to rehabili-
tate housing in the Williams-
burg area outside Wewahitch-
ka and for several small
paving and drainage projects.
Tuesday, under the urging
of Leuchs, the County agreed
to re-arrange their request
priorities to stipulate that
$250,000 of their grant request
would go to the port project to
pay for engineering, permits
and planning. Leuchs said the

St. Joe Paper Company, would
put the project well on the

The County would still ear-

tion in the Williamsburg area.
Of course, all of this hinges
on the county being successful
in securing its grant request.,

Work Day At Faith Christian


Parents and friends of Faith
Christian School are invited to
participate in a work day this
Saturday, August 15, begin-
ning at 8 a.m., at 801 20th
Street.
The opportunities are
many: yard work, painting,
carpentry and general clean-
ing. Rev. Hal Haller, the
principal, asks that each
person bring the tool of his
"Trade" along with plenty of
energy and good will.
Faith Christian School is a
non-denominational private
school serving students in four
and five year old kindergarten
and grades one through seven.
School will begin for students
August 31. For more informa-


tion or registration, please
call 229-6707, weekdays be-
tween the hours of 9 a.m. and
Noon. There are still openings
in every grade.


Apalachee had been active in
reviewing projects which
come to the agency for
approval, in order to receive
grants.
Norris said he had turned
down several requests, includ-
ing a request to receive
federal loans and grants to
build a night club and beer
joint in Tallahassee. "I turned
it down", Norris said, "but the
other members approved it."
Norris expanded Johnson's
remarks, saying he had ap-
proved the Florida Power
Corporation project at White
City and had made no com-
ment on the power plant
proposal in Liberty County.
He also recommended that the
Board make no comment on
the project and give their
support for the White City
project of Florida Power. He
pointed out the law would
require them to support Flor-
ida Power's plans before
permits would be considered.
BOAT LANDING PERMIT
The County received a per-
mit from the Department of
Environmental Regulation
this past week to construct a
boat landing at Palm Point on
Highway 98, in St. Joseph Bay.
The Commission has had
this project underway for
more than a year, trying to
secure property and get per-
mits from DER and the Corps
of Engineers.
Recently, St. Joe Paper
Company gave the county the
use of one and a half acres of
land at Palm Point for the
landing.
DER's approval came last
week and the county now has
to secure a permit from the
Corps of Engineers to get the
landing construction under-
way.
As chairman James Tank-
ersley said several months
ago, "It's a pity to have all of
that Bay and Gulf water to fish
in and no landings to allow
fishermen to put in their
boats."
The only landings on the
Bay and Gulf are the small
landing at the west end of
Fifth Street in Port St. Joe and
at Mexico Beach.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business items, the
Commission:
-Received bids on lumber
materials for construction of
several new garbage collec-
tion sites. Landfill director,
Tommy Pitts was to examine
the bids for selection of the
best one for the county.


"No pings, no knocks, no
dieseling."
Those were just some of the
observations of an AAA execu-
tive who has just completed a
6,000 mile test run using
gasohol.
Hampton Dunn, of Tampa,
senior vice president of the
Peninsula Motor Club (AAA),
said he was "quite pleased"
with the performance of his
vehicle during the experiment
and he recommends use of the
gasoline-ethanol mixture.
The fuel used in the long
statewide run was a mixture
of 90 percent unleaded gaso-
line and 10 percent ethanol.
Dunn said the alcohol addition
is a "hamburger helper" for
the gasoline industry, and
extends our fuel supply and
thus "helps the United States
reduce its imports of foreign
oil." It also provides an
additional market for farm
products.
Briefly summarizing his
findings Dunn stated:
"There was improved en-
gine performance with
greater acceleration. Use of
gasohol can reduce engine
wear and corrosion because
carbon deposits from the fuel
are reduced, and there is
evidence that gasohol actually
cleans the internal com-
ponents of the engine. As a
result, longer engine life and
lower maintenance cost for

-Agreed to hold six bids for
a new tractor and bush hog
mower until the next meeting
in order to examine the bids,
which ranged from $4,794.00 to
$6,174.00.
-Received a request for a
second 30-day extension on
completing the property value
rolls from Property Appraiser
Joyce Williams. The new
extension would delay the
rolls until August 31.
-Agreed to take a look at a
large drain ditch which runs

permit to improve the boat
landing at Indian Pass.


engines run on gasohol may be
expected."
"My records show that we
got slightly better mileage
using gasohol-approximately
a mile more per gallon, or
eight to nine percent. The
feeling of the driver was the
car had more power, quicker
pickup and easier passing
with gasohol. Mechanics at
Abraham Chevrolet reported
that measurements showed
that all the exhaust emissions
were well within the EPA
exhaust emissions guidelines.
The spark plugs looked good,
nothing appeared out of the
ordinary. They also assured
that there had been no dam-
age to the rubber parts of the
vehicles."
The AAA executive said the
only drawback he experienced
during the test was the
inconvenience and lack of
availability of gasohol. How-'
ever, he said as production
increases and popularity of
the fuel grows, this should be
no problem later on. Even so,
a motorist is never more than
a tank full away from a
gasohol station. Dunn traveled
to all parts of the state,
Pensacola, Marco Island,
Miami and Fernandina
Beach, on all kinds of streets

and highways during his test
run. The Peninsula Motor
Club is compiling a list o1
gasohol outlets throughout the
state.
Dunn broke the news thai
one company alone, the Bio
Chemical Energy Ltd., witt
headquarters in Clearwater,
is ready to build six to eight
plants in Florida to produce
ethanol. The first will be
assembled on the Lykes
Brothers feed lot at the
Hernando Couty Airport at
Brooksville.
The Triple-A man found thai
gasohol sales have more thar
quadrupled in Florida during
the last year. He said he found
gasohol to cost about the
same, or even slightly less,
than ordinary unleaded gaso
line.
"And you're getting higt
test fuel at unleaded prices,'
he added, noting that the
octane rating of gasohol rudj
from 90 to 91.5, while regular
unleaded has a rating of onl)
87.

United States Department

Department of Agriculture
officials are more concerned
with acting quickly now that
the Mediterranean Fruit'Fly
has shown up in Florida rather
than looking for clues to its
origin.
The appearance of the three
med-flies in Ybor City on Aug.
4th is being looked at as an
infestation according to
Richard Clark of the Florida
Dept. of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Division of
Plant Inspection (DPI).
"We will take all the steps
necessary to eradicate the
med-fly problem," said Clark.
Only after eradication has
been achieved can DPI afford
the luxury of determine where
the flies came from, Clark
said.
Clark added that the med-
fly probably hitchhiked to
Tampa in a car or infested
fruit which was then dis-
carded.
"The med-fly moves on its
own very little, but when
people start carrying infested
fruit with them, the flies start
popping up all over the place,"
he said.

Economic Conditioning
If you have central air
conditioning, keep the ther-
mostat at a steady setting
no lower than 78oF. De-
pending on where you live,
the difference between
720F and 780F can save
you anywhere from 12% to
47% in cooling costs.
With room air condition-
ers, use only the ones in
rooms you are occupying at
the moment; shut down the
others.
Wheti buying air condi-
tioners, get sound advice on
air-conditioner capacity; too
powerful or too weak a unit
will waste energy and money.
Clean or replace filters at
least once a month during
the cooling season. Set the
fan at high speed, except in
Very humid weather. A low
setting will remove more
moisture.


the med-fly situation. FFB
president Walter Kautz said
Farm Bureau will cooperate
with government officials
wherever possible.
Kautz pointed out every
Floridian can help in the
med-fly battle.
"Agricultural and govern-
ment officials can't do it all.
People with host trees in their
yards should watch for exces-
sive fruit drop," Kautz said.
If the fruit drop is unusually
large, Kautz recommended
the person cut open the fruit
and examine it for maggots.
According to DPI's Clark, if
maggots are found, the home-
owner should call the county
agriculture extension agent
immediately. The agent will
then arrange for a DPI
inspection.

Garden
By Robert J. Black
IFAS Extension Horticulturist
Ferns, of which there are
over 10,000 species, are non-
flowering perennials which
offer versatile usage in home
and in the landscape.
One of the most unusual
Sferns is the staghorn fern. The
staghorn fern is an epiphyte or
air plant which is normally
found growing on the side of
trees in its native habitat. The
generic name Platycerium
comes from the Greek word
meaning "broad horn". These
plants are grown for their
attractive antler-like fronds
(leaves). The plant bears two
types of fronds; the sterile
fronds which are flat, round
and located at the base of the
Sfern and the fertile fronds
which are irregular, lobed and
usually ascending from the
plant. Spores appear as
* brownish masses on the tips of
the antler-like fertile fronds.
These spores will produce new
plants when sown on moist,
Sterile peatmoss. However,
This is a slow method of
reproduction and most new
plants are obtained from
suckers (Pups) which develop
from the mother plants.
The staghorn fern can be
used to cast the spell of the
tropics and add interest to a
patio wall. In frostless areas,
specimens thrive on palms
trunks or on branches of
woody trees.
The culture of the staghorn
fern is not difficult except that
the plants are sensitive to the
lack of drainage, to low
temperature, and to low hu-
midity. These points of culture
should receive special atten-
tion and a moist atmosphere
and a warm temperature
should be provided for the best
development of the plants.
Staghorns grow best in shaded
areas and will not endure the
Florida sun. The medium
upon which they are growing
should be allowed to dry
slightly between waterings.
These plants are usually
grown on a slab of pecky
cypress, redwood or tree fern.
They also can be grown in
hanging baskets. Unless the
material to which they are
attached naturally has a por-
ous and spongy surface, a bed
of spagnum moss should be
placed on the wood before the
plant is attached by wire or
other means. The roots can
grow in the moss and this
material also aids in main-
taining a high humidity.
All of the many species of
staghorn ferns require or
grow best in a high tempera-
ture, 60-70 degrees or higher.
However, the common stag-
horn fern (Platycerium bifur-
catum) will tolerate a temp-
erature of 50 degrees and is
best adapted for use in the low
humidity conditions of the
average home.
Syringing the plants perio-


Usage

odically will help to maintain
a high humidity around them.
However, they should not be
syringed during the winter.
Syringing during the winter
months will cause spotting of
the leaves and often severe
rotting of the crown.
The staghorn fern responds
to fertilization as much as
other ferns. However, since
growth is slow only a small
amount of fertilizer should be
added at any one time and the
plants fertilized only during
the growing season, or sum-
mer months.


Gulf Coast

Bus Driver

Needed
Gulf County Schools and
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege have renewed an agree-
ment providing transportation
from Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka to Panama City. In a
few weeks classes will begin
and it is hoped that the buses
will help meet the need of area
students.
Persons interested in driv-
ing a bus for the next school
year to GCCC should contact
Temple Watson, 229-8256 or
639-2871 on or before August
24. The driver must have a
valid Florida chauffeur's li-
cense. The driver must have a
completed state application
for bus drivers which requires
a medical examination. In lieu
of compensation, the driver.
will receive tuition assistance.
The buses will not begin on
August 27 without a qualified
driver.

R. Branch. Also present were

William J. Rish, Administra-
tive Assistant Tommy Pitts

Whitfleld, and Civil Defense
Director-Bailiff Bill Lamar.
The meeting came to order

clerk the dgeof al-
legiance to the
Administrative Assistant

peron the agenda, Dr. E.
Rather with a discussion of
the county health department,
had to cancel and would be the
first person on the agenda at
the next meeting.
Mrs. Vicki Abrams, Di-
rector, Gulf County Associa-
tion for Retarded Citizens,
met with the Board to request
the Board allow her to apply
,for community services trust
S fund grant in the amount of
$2,188.00, which would go to
the association she represents
and is $188.00 more than they
f "now get from county funds.
i' She said the Board would have
to match the grant in the
i : amount of $1,09400 which is
06.00 less than the Board
S now budgets for the associa-
tion. She said this arrange-
ment would thus work for the
:. benefit of both parties. Comm.
Birmingham then moved the
Board execute the grant ap-
plication. Comm. Money sec-
onded the motion and itpassed
Unanimously.

gional Planning Council, ap-
. h eared before the Board with

S sales tax increase to help local
governments with their finan-
cial problems. He said the
Board was welcome to send a
representative to the meeting.
Comm. Branch said that he
didn't think a sales tax
increase was the answer to the
problem since the county
government would receive
very little funds from this tax.
The Chairman appointed
vrComm. Gortman and Clerk
S Gates to attend this meeting
on behalf of the Board.

said only two of the four units
were working and he present-
ed the Board with three
proposals to fix the air condi-
S(on fe in the Clerk's

county commissioners had
told him not to conduct the
survey. The Chairman in-
structed the Clerk to write Mr.
Herring informing him of the
Board's decision in this
matter. Mr. Warren said
certain contractural obliga-
tions need to be executed with
the Department of Transpor-
tation for the Board to receive
the $8,000 grant for this
purpose. Comm. Birmingham
moved the Board execute the
agreement. Comm. Money

on the property of Morris
Winchell. Administrative As-
sistant Pitts told the Board he

Vets' Cemeteries for Fla., Ala.


Fort Mitchell, Ala., Will Serve Area


Congressman Earl Hutto
announced recently that the
Veteran's Administration will
develop national cemeteries in
Alabama and Florida.
Fort Mitchell, Alabama,
will serve as the regional
national cemetery for states in
Standard Federal Region IV.
This selection completed the
concept of developing one
regional national cemetery in
each of the ten federal
regions.
According to VA" Admini-
strator Robert Nimmo, VA
will locate a national ceme-
tery in Florida at a yet to be


determined site to serve that
state's rapidly growing vet-
eran population.
These new national ceme-
teries bring to eight the total
of new cemeteries started by
VA since enactment of the
National Cemeteries Act in
1973.
The decision to locate at
Fort Mitchell, Nimmo said,
was based on increasingly
escalating costs of developing
Fort Gillem, Georgia, the site
selected by VA in November
1979 to serve as the regional
cemetery in the southeastern
United States.

Seat belts can save lives, but
only if motorists will use

pants would only use their seat

inside vehicles and keep them
from banging into each other
during a crash. Children be-
come flying missiles during
crashes, especially if they are
in the back seat and the front
seat has an opening in the
center. However, they usually
are safer in the back seat
rather than in the front seat if
unbelted.
Small children and babies
being held in an adult's lap are
often crushed between the
adult's body and the dash-
board.
Most crashes occur within
25 miles of the driver's home
and at speeds under 40 miles
per hour.
In Florida in 1980, of the
63,209 crashes in which seat
belts were in use, only one
person in 872 crashes died. Of
563,052 crashes with seat belts
not in use, one died in every
327 crashes.
Using seat belts is the most
simple, most effective and
surest way of increasing a
motorist's life span and is
immediately available.
"If you love life, keep
yourself and your family
buckled up when traveling in
your car," concluded Beach.


The region, comprising
Tennessee, Kentucky, Missis-
sippi, Alabama, Florida,
Georgia, South Carolina and
North Carolina, has a com-
bined veteran population of 4.5
million, including 1.3 million
veterans in Florida.
Hutto stated that Florida
leads all states in the growth
of its veteran population with
an average increase of 5,000
veterans each month. Vet-
erans in Florida average 51
years of age, the highest in the
nation.
Fort Mitchell is located ten
miles southeast of the Colum-
bus, Georgia, Phenix City,
Alabama, metropolitan area
on an inactive military re-
servation. The 451-acre site is

I don't like strangers. Don't want 'em in the house. But when I got on my
grandson's case about my electric bills, he talked me into having' one of his
Florida Power buddies come over to give the house an energy checkup. He
said it was probably wastin' electricity and this energy expert would come
up with some answers pretty quick. Heck, I figured it was worth fifteen


bucks to find out.
Well, he snooped all over the
place! In the attic.'Round the water
heater and the windows. I just
couldn't stand it! But you know
what? Any stranger who can come
up with as many ways to save me
money as that feller did, is welcome
'round here anytime.
