A Tug of War




Has Developed



Over White City Water Plan


Gulf County's attempt to aid White City in
securing a central water supply has develop-
ed into a tug of war between those who want
it and those who do not.
About 60 residents of White City converg-
ed on the Courthouse Tuesday night, with the
ones opposed to the water system seeming to
be in .the majority, telling the County
. Commission of their opposition to plans to
build a water treatment and distribution
system in the community.
CONFUSION REIGNS
Confusion about what the County is
proposing seemed to be the main points of
opposition. One certain point was also much
discussed and vociferous objections were
expressed to the fact that all residents in
White City would be required to tie into the
water system if it were built.
Even this objection contained some
confusion of information. Most of those
opposing the mandatory hook-up were of'the
impression that it was the doings of the
County Commission which was creating what
White City residents considered a monster of
a requirement. Actually, according to Board
Member Doug Birmingham, the requirement
was made by the Farmers Home Administra-
tion, the potential source of a low interest loan
to build the system. FHA made the
requirement to guarantee there would be
enough customers on hand to pay for the
system in the small community of Wh* City.
Monty Gentry seemed to be the leader of
opposition to the water system, disputing the
claim that the minimum water bill under the
new system would be only $14.00 per month.
Gentry said, "Simple mathematics show this
charge just won't return enough money to
make the annual payments of the system".
Gentry surmised that the minimum bill would
have to be more like $25.00 per month to make
'nds meet with the system.
S>-: NOT IN THE WATER BUSINESS
At the outset of the voiced objections for
various reasons, Commission chairman
James Tankersley observed, "The county is
not in the water business. We were just trying
to help White City get water. We have had a
lot of requests for a water system out there. If
you want water, we want to try to help you get
it. If you don't want it, that's fine too."
Two public meetings held at White City
about the matter has produced overwhelming


approval of the system. One vote taken at one
of the meetings had about two thirds of those
attending voting for the system and a third
objecting. There was over 100 citizens at the
meeting.
Eric Hammond led the opposition on the
point, "I feel this nation we live in was built on
choice. This board shouldn't force us to take
water (service) if we don't want it."
George Harper came to the front to say
that forcing people who couldn't afford it or
didn't want it to take water service was
"wrong" and "I don't like that that thing
because it's wrong".
Most of those who opposed the water
system seemed to be opposed because they
didn't want to be made to take the service,
although some said they could afford the
service if they wanted it. "I can afford it, but I
don't want it," Connie Nixon said.
Fraser Hardy said, "I signed the paper
for the water system, but I didn't know what I
was getting into. Let's have a vote and if you
get more "yes" votes than "no" votes, then
put it in."
SOME SUPPORT SHOWN
Thelma Summers and Roy Harper
seemed to be the only supporting voices for
the water system and they stoutly defended
the system. Roy Harper used a bit of sarcasm
when he noted, "I find we have people in
White City *ho can do a better job than the
engineers (who made the survey). They said,
the system would be as it is shown in their
report, but some of the people in opposition
say the report isn't true."
Summers pointed out that the majority of
the people in White City voted for the system
and she felt the Commission should go ahead
with plans to put it in based on the vote.
Joyce Isaacs asked the board, "Is there
any chance of stopping it?" (the water
project). Birmingham said, "We have just
filed an application for financing. It can be
stopped any time up to the point where we
accept the money."
The request for the vote ended the
meeting, when the Commission agreed to let
the matter ride until the financing could be
dFtermined, which could take up to a year.
Alter availability of financing is determined,
the-Board will then hold an election in White
City to see if the citizens there want to
proceed.


The Gulf County Commis-
sion will get into the second
phase of its budget-setting
process tonight at 7:00 p.m.,
facing an avalanche of budget
increase requests from offi-
cers in the courthouse and
department heads.,
Monday night, the Commis-
sion faced heavy requests for
increases from Sheriff Ken
Murphy and Property Ap-
praiser Joyce Williams, both
of whom have expressed an
inclination to take their re-
quests to the State Depart-
ment of Finance if their
requests are not given serious
consideration.
Williams did not attend the
meeting Monday, but had
already expressed her posi-
tion, saying she wasn't going
to fool around with her budget
request this year. She has
already threatened a trip to
Tallahassee if the Board did.
not fund her full request of
$93,768, which reflects a 19
percent increase over her
present budget.
Williams said she needs the
money to purchase computer
terminals for use in her office
and 'to bring the property
appraisal records up to where
they should be. She has said
they are in bad condition.
Sheriff- Murphy said his
budget request of $503,541 is
necessary because of several
things, one of which is a
requirement by the State of
Florida, that he employ four
new correctional officers to
serve as attendants in the Gulf
County jail. T
Murphy said his proposed
budget increase is misleading.
He received funding of $360,-
809 last year but the County
also gave him a chunk of
money out of the revenue
sharing money which ran his
budget up to around $400,000.
Last year, the county fur-
nished the Sheriff with an


additional $19,570 for equip-
ment and $14,500 toward the
purchase of two new vehicles.
This year, the Sheriff said
he is requesting enough extra
money to give his staff a seven,
percent salary increase. "I'm
losing too many men due to
low pay. After we train them
we need to pay them enough to


encourage them to stay."
The Sheriff said he is also
asking for two additional
deputies and two additional
vehicles and the necessary
equipment for the two depu-
ties.
The Sheriff said his rolling
stock has been allowed to

SJPC In Construction Program


St. Joe Paper Company is in the midst of a
multi-million construction program to modern-
ize and enlarge their wood handling facilities at
the paper mill.
Shown in the photograph above is a portion
of the wood yard, where the firm is installing an
additional chip truck unloading device, as well
as modernizing the wood unloading and handling
process. The-wood yard coiistriuction'program is


expected to be completed by the end of the
current year, according to a St. Joe Paper
spokesman.
In the background can be seen the
framework for a new bark-burning boiler
expected to be installed and on line by the end of
next year. The new boiler will utilize scrap bark
from the mill operation as a fuel,, making a
savings on the oil bill. The bark which the new


boiler will burn has been disposed of by the mill
in the past.
In the same area, the mill is reworking a
recovery boiler to make it more- efficient,
recovering some waste products which are now
thrown away. This project, too, is scheduled for
completion by the end of next year.

City Budget Shows Slight Hike


The City Commission took its first look at the
proposed new budget in a special meeting Tuesday
afternoon, looking at a plan which would reflect
about a six percent increase in the budget, reduce
the millage by slightly over one mill and still
generate about the same revenue as last year.
The increase will reflect a hike of about $30,000
more money in income.
Increases are expected to come mostly from
salary hikes and related items, such as retirement
for City personnel. Other increases will be found in
the usual areas of energy expenses and materials
used.
The Commission will be meeting on the budget
again in special session Monday morning at 8:30 in
the Fire Station, in an attempt to hammer out a
final financial plan prior to. the September 29
deadline.
According to a statement of additions and
deletions on the property rolls, furnished by the

Property Appraiser, the City will be levying 4.2588
mills against a taxable property value of
$88,284,030.00 in the City. Last year, the levy was
5.2706 mills against a value of $71,691,850.
One of the big savings in the new budget will be
removal of a $50,000 item which was included last
year for assistance to the Municipal Hospital. The
remainder of the hospital deficit was met by the
City on interest earned on invested funds.
City employees have asked for a 10 percent
salary increase, and the Commission is giving that
request consideration. The tentative budget plan,
drawn before the request mas made, reflected an
eight percent salary increase. This is with a
mandated 10 percent in the City's contribution to the
City retirement plan and an increase in Social
Security payments.
Growing property values are expected to swell
the tax income by $33,400. Franchise taxes should
climb by $2,500. On the other side of the ledger,


federal revenue sharing is expected to drop by
$1,750 and cigarette taxes by $2,000.
OTHER BUDGETS
The Oak Grove Water system, operated by the
City, is expected to increase from $23,024.18 last
year to $23,350 for the coming year.
The Water and Sewer service budget will be.
reduced from $830,088.20 last year to $521,114.00 for,-
the coming year. The reduction is due to the:
completion of a construction program which was
shown in last year's budget and completed during
the year.
The Wastewater Treatment Plant budget will
also be reduced for the first time in the past few-
years. Again, most of this reduction is reflected due
to the completion of a 201 engineering study which
was in progress last year and its expense shown in
the budget.
The WWP had a budget of $3,603,315.92 last
year. The new budget has a total of $3,014,501.00-
planned for the coming year.


School Adopting



M nr t -Firav


The Gulf County School Board will be
putting the final touches on a $4,435,108.85
budget for fiscal 1981-82 tomorrow afternoon
at 5:00 p.m. The new budget shows an
increase of $300,000 over last year's budget,
with a drop in millage from 6.397 last year to
6.112 for the new budget year.
Most of the increases were shown in higher
costs of energy for buildings and transporta-
tion, with a modest $50,000 cost increase in
instructional personnel.
Even with the increase in the total budget,
the Board has affected some economies and
slashed several departments in the budget. *
Other increases in operational costs are
shown in transportation services where a
$15,000 increase has boosted that expenditure
to $233,233.75. Plant operation was also
increased by $31,000 to $338,934.34. Mainten-
ance services were also increased by nearly
$100,000 to $221,292.34 for the coming year.
Economies were affected in instructional
media service, cut $143,000. General adminis-
tration was reduced by $2,000 and school
administration was cut $17,000.
Debt service for the school system has been
reduced by $16,000. This. figure will be
changed considerably for next year's budget
with the completion of the new Wewahitchka
Elementary School during this school year.
Capital improvements was reduced by
$250,000 and will go down even more
dramatically in the budget next year, with the
completion of the new Wewahitchka Elemen-
tary School later on this fall.


-67
The largest reduction was shown in the'
lunchroom program, which was slashed
almost in half due to the curtailment of'
federal funds to operate that particular
program with. Last year, the lunchroomn
budget was $661,252.16. The new budget figure
is $372,393.10.
A sizeable portion of the new budget
increase went to pay interest payments on
money which had to be borrowed at the end of:.
the budget year last year to keep on operating
when tax revenues were six months .late.
Since the School Board faces the same:
situation this year, although not to as great a
degree, funds were placed in the budget to.
pay interest on operational money this year:
also.
To anticipate unusual expenditures during.
the coming school year, the Board has hiked-
its reserves from $75,761.41 to $130,639.81. :
The Board found itself in the hole by-
$172,909.65 at the beginning of the school year
because of the unusual tax collection
situation.
The Board expects to receive $3,399,781.75.
from state and federal sources, for a
increase of $219,000. Local funds will bring in
$1,078,963.00 for an increase of $290,000. Other:
sources will bring in $129,273.75, showing a-
reduction of $15,000.
The School Board expects to levy 6.112 for
district operations, .570 for debt service and
.300 for local capital improvement for a total
millage levy of 6.982. Last year's total millage
was 7.22.

It's our understanding that the
state of Florida is including some
beachfront property in Gulf County
in its plan to spend some $200 million
in a purchase of beachfront land.
From information we have, the
state is considering the purchase of
some land at Cape San Bias and a
strip of beachfront property at St.
Joe Beach. Exactly where, we don't
know.
At first, we were just like you.

end of the Peninsula it was a
different story.
Everyone here in this part of
Gulf County was glad to hear it at
first. The beautiful Peninsula would
remain in its natural beautiful state.
The large dunes would not be
spoiled, the sea oats would continue
to flourish and the tall stately pines
would remain intact.
The Peninsulais still there in all
its natural beauty. The only fly in the
ointment is that the state owners will
not allow people, to visit the
Peninsula (except a small number
at a time) to see these beautiful
vistas of beach and flora which have
been preserved for us.
The same thing happened with
the purchase of the lower banks of
the Apalachicola River. The state
threatened to fence it in to keep the
people out until people in Gulf and
Franklin counties raised a ruckus
about the proposed fence.
Did these purchases do us any
good? We say they ,did more harm
than good.
Now, we're doubtful of the
state's intentions to purchase beach-
front property. We are fearful that a
state purchase would place these
lands off limits to our people more so
than a high rise condominium built
on the sites would.
And, we're not in favor of the
high rise condominiums on our
beaches.

Were you ever caught in a
long line at the check out
counter in the grocery store-
only to find that several check
writers are in the check out
line ahead of you?.
The girl at the cash register
has totaled the bill, tears off
the tally tape and hands it to
the customer. Only when she
has the tally tape in her hand
does she seem to realize that
she must pay the bill.
While the impatient custo- "
mers behind her wait in
courteous silence, she opens
her purse and rambles around
until phe finds her check book.
Then, she opens another com-
partment and searches until
she finds a pen. Flipping
through her book until she
finds a blank check, she
settles down on the counter to
write the check. Carefully, she
checks over the sales slip and
the check again before tearing


UVer .
Then, she settles down on
the counter again to fill out the
stub. After checking the stub
with the sales slip, she opens
her purse and replaces the
check book. Again, she opens
another compartment to re-
place her pen. But, before she
budges to make room for the
next customer- out of still
other compartments of her
purse comes a pack of cigar-
ettes and a lighter. Without a
word she lights up and moves
out in a haze of smoke- if she
smokes.
She is gone but not forgot-
ten- by the check out girl or
the line of customers behind
her.
The line of customers let go
a sigh of relief as the next
customer moves to the check
out counter. As the check out
girl hands her the sales slip,
she hands the girl the cash to
pay the bill. The customers in
the line look on approvingly

pose on others at the check out
counter. She knows how to win
friends and influence people
without saying a word. Then,
she, too, is gone but she leaves
a line of appreciative shoppers
behind her. -
Bang! There is another
check writer in the check out
line ahead of you. Then,
another- and another.
Several of these in a line of
customers can leave most of
the customers mad at Ronald
Reagan AND Ted Kennedy at
the same time.
Ladies, when you pay by
check, why not fill out the
check before you leave home.
You can fill out every item
except the amount. Then, in a
few seconds you can fill in the
amount and leave the other
customers appreciating you,
too.
Consider the time wasted by
check writers at check out
counters in America. If one

result? Assuming that the
process consumes an average
of 60 seconds of time per
customer, compute the wasted
time. Here is the way it looks:
60,000,000 seconds; 1,000,000
minutes, 10,666 hours; 266
40-hour weeks; five years for
one man working 50 forty-hour
weeks. Then, the following are
losing time: the check writer,
the check out girl, three
customers, behind the check
writer.
So, in just one day a million
check writers at check out
counters waste a total of 25
years of time at 40 hours per
week for 50 working weeks.
If that million check writers
perform once a week for 52
weeks, that means they have
wasted a total of 1300 years of
time.
Nitpicking? Probably so,
but that is a lot of nits. ,
Of course, ladies don't do
this in Wewahitchka and Port


e but they do in many


crnes m America.
Incidentally, it has just
occurred to me that I should
probably wear a wig, a
moustache, dark glasses, and
long whiskers hereafter when
I plan to go through the check
out line- if I want to keep
watching the world go by. And
I do!

'and whether they were responsible
or not, the unions got the blame for
it in public opinion.
This wasn't good for the unionsA
and the violence certainly wasn't
good for the community.
in the cases here, the unions
said they had no control over outside
sympathizers who committed acts of
violence. Which is all too true.
With Thurmond's bill, it would
seem to us that such a penalty would
discourage violence from outside
sympathizers, especially if one or
two of them got dcaught.W
Again, if the commission of
violence in these unfortunate cases
were a federal crime, local law
enforcement would be augmented
by federal investigators in tracking
down the ones responsible and make
their apprehension more probable.
Identification of the ones re-
sponsible would remove the stigma
from. the unions if they were not the
responsible parties in the cases.
If we were a union member, we Ahwe
would welcome such a bill.

she sees one. Remember the bowl,

Then we will need another table ...
to put the dishes on.
IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING Nan-


cy has ordered a service for 128, plus 60
extra demitasse cups and tea cups and
72 large platters. The new dishes will be
ivory in color with a wide red border
and a gold band around the edge with
the presidential seal in the middle. Just
a little something one wouldn't be
ashamed to set out for company.
I WISH I had known the White


House needed a set of dishes. I think I
could have helped them out. And it
wouldn't have cost $1,000 per setting.
Frenchie is a nut over dishes. She
has at least eight or ten sets just sitting
around the house, some of which have
never been used.
Every time the old A&P here in
Port St. Joe and Piggly Wiggly (when
Maurice Hildbold owned it) offered
dishes as premiums for buying so many
groceries, Frenchie would save until

As I said, most have never been used.

Sheriff Has One (1) Surplus


Skull; Smithsonian Wants It-


The Gulf County Commis-
sion has a problem facing
them which could develop into
a bone of contention.
The problem is what to do
with a skull which was found
in Simmons Bayou several
months ago by two young boys
scuba diving.
Sheriff Ken Murphy told the
Commission Tuesday night,

the Smithsonian Institute in
Washington, D.C. has contact-
ed him reporting they want to
keep the skull and put it on
display in the Institute.
The skull was tested by the
Institute and said to be that of


an Indian girl and said to be
about 1500 to 1600 years old.
The Commission told Mur-
phy they were willing for the
Institute to keep the skull if no
relatives come forth to claim
it.

Carnival Will Kick-Off


Children's Choir at LABC


The Long Avenue Baptist.

ren's choir program for
1981-82 with a children's choir
carnival on Saturday, October
3, from 2 to 4 P.M. Admission
will,be free, and alLchildren in
the St. Joe area, ages 4 and 5
through grade 6, regardless of
their denomination, are in-
vited to come and enroll in the
children's choir. Membership
in the choir does not require
membership in the Long Ave-
nue Baptist Church. All child-
ren are welcome. The purpose
of the children's choir pro-
gram is to teach music and

to teach the children of Jesus
Christ and His love for them.
The carnival will feature
clowns, games, rides, and a
special feature will be a Moon
'Walk which offers the ensa-
tion of walking on air. Cotton
candy, popcorn, snow cones
and soft drinks will be given
away. This promises to be an
exciting afternoon, and it's all
free.
Parents are encouraged to
bring their children, so the
choir program and meeting
times can be explained further


to them. Make plans now to
come and let your child enjoy
the carnival while registering
them for children's choir.

in 1940 and Cooper then went
to selling Fords for Otto
Anderson at St. Joe Motor
Company. Then he purchased
Parker's shop.
Cooper was to weather
another fire, which hit his
second barber shop in Decem-
ber of 1949, burning the frame
building to the ground.
Cooper re-built the burned
shop on the same site, where it
is still operating today.
And, at age 88, Cooper still
works in the barber shop,
although he doesn't work
every day. He can be found in
the shop, standing behind his
chair, ready to give you a
haircut or a shave at least one


day a week.
The remainder of the week,
Cooper spends in Wewahitch-
ka, operating his trailer park
on the banks of the Chipola
Cut-off or fishing or hunting.
During Cooper's long and
active life here in Gulf County,
he has served as a county
commissioner for eight years,
been active in the Masonic
Lodge, and an active member
of the Long Avenue Baptist
Church.
He now has, in addition to
his two children, five grand-
children and 16 great grand-
children and a plan about
what he is going to do in the
future to his trailer park on
the Chipola Cut-off.

E After a game of futility
:against the DeFuniak Springs
Walton Braves the week be-
fore, the Sharks came back
-with a running game Friday
fight, to send the Havana
Gladiators home with a 20-0
defeat.
- The Sharks moved the ball
steadily behind the hard run-
-ning of Andy Wilkinson and
'Alan Sisk to put points on the
scoreboard in every period
except the first. Wilkinson had
.63 yards for the night and Sisk
62 for 125 of the Sharks' 153
.yards on the ground.
: It looked rough for the
:Sharks as the game started.
-On the very first play of the
S:game, the Sharks fumbled the
ball and Anthony Grant re-
:covered it for the Gladiators.
But after only four plays, the
-Havana eleven had to put the
"ball away and never had it
:again until 4:46 into the period
.and then had it for only a
*minute and a half of play.
* In the second quarter, the
:Sharks drove to the Gladiator

the quarterback for a one yard
loss and the Sharks were
fourth and 17 for a first down.
The Sharks gambled on a long
scoring pass attempt to Kip
Altsteatter, but it was incom-
plete.
The Sharks came back in
the waning minutes of the first
half and pushed the ball
across from the one foot line.
The ball carrier fumbled the
ball as he dove over in the
mass of humanity, but Mark
Wester recovered the fumble
for a Shark score. Chris
Adkison kicked the extra point
and the Sharks were ahead
7-0.
The Shark score was set up
when Altstaetter and Adrian
Lewis blocked a Gladiator
punt on the Havana five yard
line.
After a punting contest for a
little over half the third
period, the Sharks started
their second scoring drive
with 5:21 left in the quarter.
Sisk and Wilkinson worked the
ball to the Havana three yard
line, where Sisk wormed his

point kick was good and the
Sharks were ahead, 14-0.
The Sharks last score came
with 4:40 left in the final
quarter, sparked by a 34 yard
pass from Chris Adkison to
Kevin Nachtsheim. Wilkinson,
Sisk and Adkison then worked
the ball to the Gladiator 10
yard line on nine plays. Ernie
Bryan ran for one yard and
then Adkison unloaded to
Robert Taylor in the end zone
and the Sharks were on the
scoreboard again, ending the
night with a 20-0 edge over the
Gladiators.
The Shark defense, led by
Tim Stutzman, Brad Bowen
and Ernie Bryan kept the
Gladiators on their side of the
field all night long except for
one time in the first period,
when they drove to the Shark

NOoDRUG Carter Says Gulf County Is Rapidly
IS ENTIRELY SAFE 0
or do s a Beconing A Serious Row Crop Producer
Vi P Any medicine powerful enough to treat a disease
or discomfort effectively, also has some potential


Extension Director Roy Lee
Carter told the Rotary Club
last Thursday that Gulf Coun-
ty is rapidly developing into
an agricultural county with
experimentation presently go-
ing on with several different
crops.
Carter said 85 percent of the
county is still in forestry, but
the developing row crop econ-
omy is going strong and is
attempting to diversify its
products.
Started about 10 years .ago
as a soybean and cattle
program, Gulf county's agri-
culture community is now
strong in soybeans, slightly
reduced in cattle feeder oper-
ations, rice, some corn, sun-
flowers and now, cotton.
Cattle, which was strong in
Gulf some few years ago, is


now feeding some 3,000 to 3,600
head a year. Some 14,000 acres
of soybeans have been planted
this year and doing well. Corn
is not doing so well except in
irrigated fields, with some
2,200 acres planted.
Rice is a growing crop in
Gulf county. MK Ranches has
about 1,550 acres this year and
FICO Farms have planted 200
acres, using a sprinkle irriga-
tion method rather than flood-
ed fields.
One of the largest rural
activities in the county is bee
keeping. Carter said there are
presently some 4,500 active
hives in the county operated
on a part time and full time
basis by their owners. Gulf
county is the primary produc-
er of Tupelo Honey, produced
only in this part of Florida.


The Port St. Joe High School Band of Gold performs dur-
B e r P o rf ns W ing intermission during the football game Friday evening at
an r Shark stadium. It continues to display the halftime shows
given in recent years that have delighted the fans present.


New crops on the scene,
which appear to be doing well
are sunflowers and, this year,
a 100 acre field of cotton
planted by FICO Farms. FICO
has also planted an experi-
mental plot of 20 acres of
peanuts.
Carter said such experi-
ments are a part of the
responsibility of his depart-
ment. "The object of our
organization is to help pro-
duce, process and market
farm products".


In doing this, the local agent
represents the expertise of the
agricultural experts at the
University of Florida. "We
have access to an expert in
almost every field to help the
local farmer, gardener and
homeowner overcome his
problems in his fields, garden
or yard."
In Gulf County, the Exten-
sion Agent also directs studies
in home economics, 4-H ac-
tivities, commercial and rural
development and operates the
county's energy office. All of

Mole Crickets


BY Roy Lee Carter
Two species of mole crickets
are prevalent in Florida, the
Southern and Changa (Puerto
Rican). The color patterns of
the two species are usually
distinct; the Changa is a
lighter creamy brown while
the Southern is reddish to dark
brown and has four distinct
lighter spots on its prothorax.
The spots on the southern are
satisfactory for quick identifi-
cation.
In North and Central Flori-
da, oviposition usually begins
in the latter part of March
with peak egg-laying in May
through mid June. Approxi-
mately 75 percent of the eggs
are laid during these months.
Mole cricket feeding occurs
at night after rain showers or
irrigation and during warm
weather. Some surface feed-
ing has been noted when the
soil is dry, but is greatly'
reduced. All nymphal stages
as well as adults come to the
surface at night to search for
food. Tunneling of more than
20 feet per night has been
observed. During the day the
mole crickets return to their

81 the Cottondale Hornets, 34-0.
ed last Friday night in Cottondale
after amassing 280 yards in
their potent ground game.
The Gators continued to
play stout defense in their
second victory, allowing the
Hornets only 32 yards of
offense, as the Gators ran up
some impressive statistics.
The' Gators did their dam-
age in the first half, racking
up 28 -points on four touch-
downs, two extra point'kicks
and a two point conversion.
Harold Williams was the big
gun for the Gators rushing for
120 of the Gators' 280 yards.
Williams put two touchdowns
on the board in the first and
second periods.
In the first period, the
Gators put 13 points on the
board on atwo yard plunge by
Williams and a 23 yard gallop
by quarterback Tim Price.
Price kicked one extra point
conversion and missed the
second.


In the second quarter, Price
again tucked the ball under his
arm and rushed for 10 yards
through the line for his second
TD of the night and Vincent
Jones ran the extra points
over to boost the Gators to a
21-0 lead. Williams broke loose
in the second period on a 32
yard Gator scoring run and
Price kicked the extra point to
give the Gators a command-
ing lead at half time.
In the second. half, the
Gators took it easy and scored
only in the third period on a
one yard dive across the goal
line by Jones. The kick was
wide, but the Gators had
themselves a handy 34-0 lead
which they preserved for the
remainder of the game.
The stout Gator defense was
led by linebackers Harold
Williams and Scott Gortman
and linemen Vernon Bryant
and Eddie Martin.
,-FRIDAY'S GAME
Tomorrow night, the Gators
will be on the road for their
third game in a row, when
they travel to Port St. Joe to

permanent burrows and may
remain there for long periods
of time when weather condi-
tions are unfavorable. Adult
mole crickets are strongly
attracted to light during their
spring dispersal flights.
Since mole crickets have
only one generation per year
at least in both North and
Central Florida, and most
nymphs hatch during late May
and early June, it is possible to
prevent most damage which
occurs later in the year by
proper timing of insecticide
application.
Proper timing of pesticide
application is extremely im-
portant. In Northern and
Central Florida where eco-
nomic damage has occurred in
previous years, apply a re-
commended spray or granule
during the latter part of June
or a bait during July. Pesti-
cides may also be applied
when damage appears in
spring due to egg-laying ac-
tivity or during August and
September, but will not be as
effective at these times due to
maturity of the crickets. Irri-
gate before application if the
soil is dry. Irrigate after
applying spray or granules
with V2 inch water. Do not
irrigate after applying baits
for 3-4 days if possible.

Homeowners Can Protect Their



Grounds From Hurricane Damage


The 1981 hurricane season is
well underway, and now is a
good time to take steps to
reduce the likelihood of dam-
age in home grounds should
one of these storms pass
through your area.
Trees and larger shrubs that
were planted during the past
year should be staked to
prevent them from being
blown down. Three to four
strong stakes two to three feet
in length should be driven into
the soil to a depth of 18-24
inches. These stakes should be
driven- into the soil' at a
45-degree angle with the slope
of the stake away from the
trees. Driving stakes into the
soil in this manner makes
them more secure and less
likely to be pulled out. The.
distance the stakes are placed
from the tree will depend on
'the size of tree. They should be,
placed far enough away from
the tree so that guy wires can
be run halfway up the trunk to
the ground at an angle of
about 45 degrees.
The guy wireshould be run
through a length of old garden
hose before it is placed around
the trunk. This will afford
protection to the bark
against damage by the wire as
the tree sways in the wind.:
Stakes should be notched
two or so inches from top end.
Place the guy wire in this
notch or groove to prevent it
from slipping off the stake:
The wire should be fairly
tight, but must not be so tight.
that it does not have a little
slack. When the wires are
very tight, they may break.
Little or no slack may cause
the trunk to break at the point
where the wires encircle it.
Avoid placing guy wires
over walks or drives unless
plainly marked so as to be
readily visible, especially at
night, as they are a constant
source of danger to passers-
by.
Inspect larger trees for
broken, damaged or dead
limbs. If'. these are present,
have them removed as soon6as
possible. Hurricane winds can
cause these to be dislodged
from the tree. Falling limbs
can cause considerable dam-
age to cars,; house roofs,
windows or other objects they
strike.
Gutters should be cleaned of
leaves, twigs and other debris
to allow for free passage of
water. As you know, heavy
rains accompany hurricane
and drainage-should be at its
best during these storms.
Tropical potted plants, tub


specimens, hanging baskets
and other outside movable
plants should be brought in-
doors. Less than hurricane
force winds can strip the
leaves from these plants,
topple them over, or cause
breakage of branches and
stems and completely destroy
them. -
Lawn and patio furniture
and accessories should also
receive attention. Make plans
to have storage room avail-
able so they can be brought
inside during strong winds.
Also, do not forget garbage
can and trash containers as
these can become dangerous


flying objects in hurricane
winds.
It is not advisable to prune
trees and shrubs at this time.
To do so would encourage new
growth which is highly sus-
ceptible to wind damage and
also.cold damage later in the
year. However, weak, broken
or dead branches should be
removed now.
While we hope there will be
no hurricanes hitting our
country this year, it is better
to be prepared for them.
Check your home grounds
today and take the preca-
tionary measures mentioned
above.


Motorists Urged to Keep


Up Annual Auto Check


The motoring public is en-
couraged to continue making
regular safety checks of their
vehicle when the state motor
vehicle inspection law expires
in September, said the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "Some
inspection stations are al-
ready closed in a few counties
but this should not .keep
-drivers from making their
-own inspection. Such things as
tires, headlights, taillights,
brakes and steering are easily
checked. If they are defective
or you have-a suspicion that
something is wrong, take it to
a garage or service station for
a further check."


I


He continued, "Tires which
have been worn smooth not
only may blow out but can
hydroplane on wet pavement
causing you to lose control or
to slide into the vehicle
stopping ahead of you."
I "Law enforcement officers
will continue to look for
vehicles in a dangerous condi-
tion, but there is no way they
can keep up with the millions
of cars and trucks on Florida's
streets and highways. The
vehicle's mechanical condi-
tion is now in the driver's
hands as well as the safe
operation," concluded Beach.

"Trifles make perfection,
and perfection is no trifle."

Mark Watts Playing In

Troy State Univ. Band


When Troy State Univer-
sity's 280-piece "Sound of the
South" band was spread
across the football field for its
first halftime performance
Sept. 19 in Dothan, among the
band members was a Port St.
Joe student.
Mark Scott Watts, son of Mr.
and Mrs. James R. Watts, is a
member of the percussion
section of the band. He is a


sophomore at TSU, where he
is majoring in computer
science.
TSU's band, directed by Dr.
John M. Long, is a forerunner
of innovations for contem-
porary marching bands
throughout the South. The
band helped set the trend for
choreographed flag and rifle
corps and for the use of
multi-percussion instruments.
