A small delegation from
White City appeared before
the County Commission Tues-
day night, offering a petition
requesting the Commission to
drop any future action toward
securing a water system for
The petition contained about
140 names and was presented
to the Board by Eric Ham-
mond wh6 said he contacted
all residents of White City
about the matter.
Both Hammond and George
Harper stated, "Only a small
number of people in White
City want the water system".
They made a request that any
further expenditures on the
system be curtailed and the
Commissioner Branch told
the delegation, "The only
reason we got into this matter
in the first place was because
we had requests to do so".
Branch went on to explain that
as matters now stand, resi-

WHITE CITY STREET,
Ralph Shoemaker, speaking

family asked the Board why
They had not yet designated
Wimico Street in White City as
Sealey Street as they agreed
to do in April of this year.
Shoemaker and other mem-
bers of the family seemed to
be disturbed because the
Commission had agreed to the
name change and had taken
no further action.
Commissioner James Tank-
ersley said, "I thought the
matter was in the process and

County Endorses River Bill
Want Lower River Included In State Plans
The Gulf County Commission endorsed
the "Save Our Rivers" bill of the State of
Florida, calling on the state to use a portion of
the $39 million bankroll of the movement to
purchase two Gulf County tracts along the
lower Apalachicola River basin.
The County has involved the Apalachee
Planning Council in their quest for the
purchase of the river wetlands, to preserve
them as a water conservation and sports-
Unanimously agreeing to the endorse-
ment of a resolution in support of the "Save
Our Rivers" bill and support of the purchase
of the wetlands in the Apalachicola River
basin, the Commission made a formal request
of the State of Florida to utilize Chapter 81.33,
Laws of Florida, to purchase lands now
owned by MK Ranch along the Chipola and
Apalachicola Rivers and "environmentally
endangered lands" owned by Southwest
Forest Industries, Inc., along the Apalachi-
The Commission seemed to be concerned
mostly with that portion of the Apalachicola
Basin which lies south of Cut-off Island, which
'has been the subject of many conservation
discussions during the past 10 years. A
portion of the basin, in the vicinity of
Apalachicola, has already been purchased
by the State as a protective measure.,
Gulf County's Commission termed the
MK Ranch property as the "highest priority
for purchase". The Southwest Forest Indus-
tries property was designated as "second
highest priority" but pointed out there was
plenty of land along this stretch of the river
which could be purchased in a protective and
Having experienced such a purchase
before in which the State of Florida
attempted to fence in a river front purchase,
the Commission asked in their resolution that
the property be used for recreational
purposes "which are not inconsistent with a
management plan which restores and pro-
tects their natural state and condition in an
environmentally acceptable manner".

another turn early Wednesday

Williams. maintain no more
than a five percent increase
over her last year's budget, or
they would appeal her budget
request to the State Depart-
ment of Revenue.
Williams made her first
appearance before the Com-
mission Tuesday night, agree-
ing to a $3,000 reduction in her
budget, after she had pre-
viously agreed to a $2,000
reduction. Williams said she
needed the money to hire
another clerk in her office,
which the Commission
thought she didn't need.
Williams had originally sent
the Commission a letter, stat-
ing she wanted a budget of
$93,000, $15,000 more than the
previous year and $45,000
more than the office spent two
years ago. In her letter,
Williams said she wasn't
going to haggle with the
Commission over her budget
this year. She stated she
needed the $93,000 and if the
Board didn't fund it, she would
go directly to the State De-
partment of Revenue to enlist
their help in seeing that they
The Commission took the
dare and filed an appeal with
the DOR, outlining reasons
why the request was too high.
That action brought Wil-
liams to the Commission
meeting Tuesday night to
defend her budget, which she
was not successful in doing.
Commissioner Doug Bir-
mingham said, "You may feel
you need this much money to
operate and you may to
operate in the manner you
want to, but there are people
out there who have to pay for
this budget who have way
more than they can pay for
now in grocery bills and light
bills." Birmingham said gov-
ernment needed to be respon-
sive to the people's needs and
their biggest need right now
was a little relief from having
to come up with so much
money to get by on.
Branch told Williams, "You
may need another employee,
but I don't think the county
can afford it right now. I feel
you need to hold your salary
increases to the same we are
offering." Branch noted that
Williams had been saying she
didn't levy taxes, and that
blame fell on the shoulders of
the Commission. Branch said,
"There is no way we can roll
back taxes with budget re-
quests such as yours before
Williams stated she had
already hired a new employee
as of October 1, when the State
DOR had sent her approval of
her budget and if the Commlis-
sion insisted in only a five
percent increase for her of-
fice, she would have to ter-
minate the new employee. The

Note of Appreciation
We would like to express our
deepest appreciation to the
Gulf County Ambulance
Squad (Port St. Joe Unit).
Twice within the past six (6)
weeks we have had to call
them to move a loved one to
Bay Memorial Medical Cen-
ter. Both times the attendants
were courteous, willing to help
in any way, and efficient in
their job. We were so upset the
first time we don't remember
who was there, but the last
time, Monday, October 12th it,
was Madelyn Swatts, Keith'
Hodges, Terri Lyles and Den-
nis Harcus. We sincerely
appreciate all the attendants.
The people of Port St. Joe
should be proud of these
people. They are there when
you need them. They,are very
efficient and very nice.

Their thumbs are always handier than a nipple
or pacifier and helps them not to be irritable when
wet or tired. They take the place of continuous
petting. There are no apparent problems caused by
infant thumb sucking.
After youngsters are older than two years and
certainly when they become four or five years old,
your pediatrician should be consulted if thumb
sucking persists. It can not only be an embarrass-
ment, but actually change the shape of a child's
mouth. Your pediatrician can suggest one of the
preventive we carry against thumb sreking.

Chipley Tigers Gnaw On Sharks, 24-8
THUMB SUCKING IS
NORMAL FOR INFANTS
The Chipley Tigers started
celebrating their homecoming
a little early Friday night as
they scored three unanswer-
ed touchdowns and a field goal
in the first half of action,
insuring a victory, as they
mauled the sharks, 24-8.
As the action got under way
the Tigers returned the open-
ing kick-off to their own 21
yard line. Two plays later and
with 10:55 remaining in the
first quarter, Tracy Lee dash-
ed 65 yards from scrimmage
to set the stage for what was
to be his one man show for the
Tigers offense. The extra
point attempt was good.
Chris Adkison was the first
Shark to get to touch the ball
as he returned the Tiger
kick-off to the 21. On the
Sharks first series, they push-
ed the ball forward 14 yards to
their own 35 before punting the
Seven plays later, again
behind the strong running of
Tracy Lee, the Tigers were up
14 points with 4:57 remaining
in the first quarter.
Neither team mustered a lot
of offense in the remaining
time in the first quarter. As
the second quarter opened, it
looked as though the Sharks
were going to get things going.
A nine yard reverse play by
Ashley Abrams and an Adki-
son to Abrams pass comple-
tion, good for 15 yards had
moved the ball down to the
Tiger 35, but for the second
time of the evening, an
Adkison pass'was intercepted
by the Tigers and returned to
the hTigr 34.
Six plays later, Tracy Lee
again put a damper on the
razzle dazzle play paid off for
the Sharks as Ashley Abrams
tossed the tailback pass to Kip
Altstaetter to set up a fourth
and six play from the Chipley
Once again-the pass paid off
as Altstaetter grabbed an-
other Adkison pass at the 21.
Ashley Abrams, showing

for two touchdowns and Tim
Price kicking an extra point
and a 45-yard field goal.
The Crusaders, who were
held to a total of 63 yards
offense, were not able to put a
point on the scoreboard.
Stripling scored first for the
Gators in the first period on a
one-yard plunge through the.
middle. Price kicked the extra
point and the Gators were
ahead to stay.
In the second period, Price
unlimbered his old kicking
foot and booted a 45-yard field
goal to put the Gators 10 points
Stripling put the last Gator
tally on the board in the third
period, when he broke loose on
an 18-yard gallop. The extra
point try failed.
From then on, it was Gator

experience for next year and
held the Crusaders to a goose
