Collector Sending Christmas Gifts



Receiving "Season's Greetings" In White Window Envelope

Christmas gift!
Gulf County Tax Collector, Eda Ruth Taylor, has a
Christmas gift coming to all property owners this week. The
gift will be enclosed in a white number 10, window envelope,
personally addressed to every property owner in Gulf
County. Just a hint; the gift will cost you money.
Taylor said this week, her office will be sending out
10,000 tax bills, which will be in the mail by Monday, so
property owners may pay the bills and get a deduction from
their federal income tax by paying them this year if they so
desire. Taylor said the bills will carry the full four percent
discount until January 22 of next year. A two percent
discount will be allowed through the remainder of January.
One percent discounts may be taken in February and the
entire tax bill will be due in March. Tax bills will become
delinquent in April.
Taylor said, "We're late in getting the tax bills out -this,
year, but after January, we will be right on schedule with the. '
. discounts and tax collections and hopefully we can stay on
schedule from that time forward."
This is the second year in a row Gulf County tax bills
have been late in being mailed out. Bills for last year's
taxes never did get into the mails until spring of this year and
work was started immediately at that time on the 1982 rolls,
which are now being placed in the envelopes for mailing.
For a while there, it appeared as if last year's experience
would be repeated when the State Department of Revenue
turned down the property appraiser's roll back in August of
this year. The Department of Revenue has been on Gulf
County's case for the past few years in an attempt to make
the county come up to the state plan of "just value" in
assessments. For the past three years, at least, the Property
Appraiser's office has been hiking and re-stating property
values a little at a time until they could meet the dictates of
the state. Last year's tax rolls were late for the same reason,
as well as a second reason caused by a vote of the people of
Florida on a homestead exemption formula.
Last year, the new homestead exemption formula, which


is hiking homnestead exemptions to $25,000 in phases, put
counties all over the state in a bind to get tax bills out within a
reasonable period of time, with every county being late ihn
sending out notices.

Full 4% discount may be deducted by
taxpayers through January 22 says Tax
Collector Eda Ruth Taylor.

, This year, it has been another running battle with the
Department of Revenue to come up with a property roll value
which: would be acceptable.
TAXES INCREASE
The new tax bills will contain a welcome surprise for *
many .properly owners. Homestead exemptions are
increased this year to $20,000, which'will reduce the tax bill of
most home owners. Some will have their tax bill go up
slightly, even with the larger exemption,. due to the
revaluation of county property. Those parcels of property
which are not covered by the homestead exemption will
receive: an unwelcome surprise.
Taylor said this year's tax roll stands at $2.926.727. Last
year, the Tax Collector sent out notices to collect $2,676,262 in
property taxes. The increase in taxes to be collected stands
at $250,465, but the increase will be divided between fewer tax
payers.
The Tax Collector said part of the tax bills would go into
the mail on Friday of this week. "We will have them all in the.
mail by Monday", Taylor said. "We have been working hard
and on week ends since the roll was affirmed to' get the
'notices out just as soon as possible because we know some,,
people want to pay their taxes in order to get the income tax
decuction";:Taylor pointed out.
So, ready or not, here they come, just in time for the
Christmas cheer season to take part of the bite off the tax
paying .season.

The renovation program. is
expected to take about three
years and cost more than $2
million.
Tuesday night, the City
agreed to begin the' process of
employing an engineering
firm to do the design of the
several repair and renovation
measures and also set up a
plan of paying for the work.
The City is now taking
applications from engineering
S-firms for the design function

The City will pay cash for
the several repairs from in-
terest earned on a fund, which
has been set 'aside as an
emergency fund for the plant.
The City has slightly over $3
million set aside for emergen-
cies which may occur at the
plant. This money is currently
earning interest, with a size-
able amount having accrued,
over the past few years. The
interest from this deposit will
be used to pay for the repairs
and renovations.,
The renovation projects in-
clude:
-Work on city pump station
and chlorination.
-Stabilization of lagoon


device installed.
-Rehabilitate the domestic
city sewer system.
All' of these needs were set
out in an engineering study of
the plant and its operation
made over the past 18 months.
The City will not use any of
the principal on deposit, but
will utilize only the interest
earned in paying for the
several projects.

Good Crowd Turns Out In Foul Weather to Tour Refurbished Gulf Pines Hospital


Even though the weather was less than delightful
Saturday afternoon; a large crowd of people showed up for
open house at Gulf Pines Hospital as Baptist Medical Center
of Jacksonville showed off their refurbished medical facility
here in Port St. Joe. Executives from the Jacksonville center
of BMC as well as interim administrator R. M. Castle hosted


the event which saw over 100 people tour the hospital, witness
the short ceremony proceeding the tour and a visit from
Santa Claus.
During the program, Rev. J. C. Odum, retired pastor of
the Long Avenue Baptist Church, served as master of
ceremonies for the short program. Mark Donnell, minister


of music and youth at Long Avenue Baptist led the visitors in
singing Christmas carols and sang "0 Holy Night" as a solo.
Rev. Jimmy Spikes, pastor of First United Methodist Church
in Port St. Joe gave a short devotional message on the
Christmas season.
In the photos above, from left to right, Santa Claus talks


to one of the many children present for the open house. In the

Editorials and Opinions


THE STAR
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, DEC. 17, 1981


We have always been a firm
believer that if we are to maintain
:,the property tax as a revenue
source, everyone who owns property
ought to have at least some of the
action.
Florida's new property exemp-
tion law exempts the first $25,000 in
value of a homestead (beginning
next year), effectively putting a
large portion of those home owners
in Northwest Florida out of the tax
paying business. They feel such a
.:'situation is good for them, but, is it?
r Here in Gulf County, we are
seeing one of the lower dollar tax
levies in several years, but the
Property exemption has socked it to
some people who pay taxes while
Giving others -- all users of
government services a free ride.
Legislation is already in the
wind to rectify that situation and
once again treat us all equally
tax-wise. The Senate's Tax and
Finance Committee is considering a
plan to require all homeowners
younger than 65 to pay taxes on their
homes. The way this works is a
formula which this newspaper sug-
gested even before the $25,000
exemption went into effect. The plan
i would require that all home owners

Served as as administrative assistant.
E At the time of the appointment,
we figured his being named to the
position, which had never been
z created in Gulf County before, was
| merely to serve as a buffer between
the Commission and the constitu-
Sents. If something proved unpopular
5 or feathers were ruffled, Tommy
7 was on the point of the situation and
O wouldd absorb some of the energy of
i such a problem before it got to the
i political animal which sits on the
Commission board.
It didn't work out that way. Pitts
Sroived from the outset of his tenure
that he could handle it. There have
been very few instances in which
SPitts' decision had to go to the Board
for arbitration, simply because he


pay taxes on the first $5,000 of
valuation 'and exempt the next
$25,000. Such a plan would remove
the tax-paying inequities from the
taxing program and require every-
one receiving local government
services to pay a portion of the bill.
Personally, we think the proper-
ty tax serves its best purpose in
inflicting the pain payment in a
lump sum at the first of the year
inflicts on a property owner. The
lump sum payment catches the
attention of the tax payer as to just
how, much of his money the taxing
authorities are spending for him.
This in turn causes him to become
more interested in his local govern-
ment and the people who operate it.
One of the best examples of this is
right here in Gulf County. Prior to
the increase in homestead exemp-
tion, almost every property owner in
Gulf County was beginning to have
to pay some taxes. As a result, we
started seeing some improvements
in the several boards which spend
that tax money.
Again, if we must have a
property tax, we think it is the duty,
the privilege and the responsibility
of every property owner to pay
something.

stuck to the rules, was able to
convince those he knocked heads
with that he was applying the same
rule to everyone and that the rule
was in their best interest. Pitts has
also solved many thorny problems
for the Commission in the past, one
of which was to collaborate with
attorney William J. Rish in arriving
at a compromise settlement with
DNR condemning the county landfill
program.
Pitts is soft-spoken, easy going,
and quiet, but when he speaks, he
knows what he is talking about and
is well versed on his subject to the
point where he can usually prevail
without creating enemies. That
makes him a valuable man for the
County.
Now, he will become a valuable
man for Material Transfer, Inc.
Pitts will take over the management
of that new firm here in Port St. Joe
with the instructions from the home
office to make the firm a good
neighbor and a welcome part of the
community.
With Pitts background and
expertise, we think he will do the job
just as Material Transfer, Inc.,
outlined it to him.
Material Transfer, Inc., is gett-
ing a good man. Gulf County is going
to experience a void which will be
hard to fill.


Letters to the Editor


Finds Good Neighbor Policy Operating Here


Everyone Should



Pay Some Tax


mately 6:45 p.m. Not only
were most businesses closed
but there was not a distributor
of this particular type trailer
axle in Port Saint Joe. Not
only that, but we did not have
the necessary tools to remove
the broken axle. Mr. Doll
Collier and his two sons along
with several other passersby
offered to assist us, and Mr.
Collier arranged for us to drag
the boat and trailer onto his
property to provide some
security during the night. Mr.
Cecil Pippin came by and
loaned us his automobile jack
to assist us while we placed
the boat trailer on blocks.
Someone suggested that we
contact Mr. Billy Stephens as
he was probably the only


person in Port Saint Joe who
could resolve the problem. We
contacted Billy. at home that
night and he volunteered to
come to see what could be
done. Through the use of his
tools and hydraulic jack and
with his blocks as well as
blocks loaned to us by Mr.
Collier, we were able to
remove the axle and block up
the trailer.
Even though it was neces-
sary to cancel a deer hunting
trip, Billy met us at his shop at
8:00 a.m. on Saturday morn-
ing (a normal off-day) and
built us a new axle for the boat
trailer and reassembled the
bearings and hub to the trailer
axle.
While Billy was making the


above repairs, Mr. Tomlinson
was checking our car engine
for a malfunction, and based
on the problems we were
experiencing, everyone
agreed that we probably had a
burned valve. Arrangements
were made with Mr. Tomlin-
son to repair the valve prob-
lem on Monday, November 30
while we fished. We returned
that afternoon to find that we
only had a broken valve spring
which resulted in a much
lower cost to repair than had
been estimated.
Not only did these gentle-
men offer assistance to some-
one who really needed it, they
even offered to do the work on
credit, which turned out to be
unnecessary due to the rea-


sonableness of the charges
made. I was most impressed
with the honesty and integrity
of the people I met in Port
Saint Joe and write this letter
in an effort to give them credit
for the type citizens that they
are. If there is a local
newspaper I would appreciate
it if you would forward my
letter to them for possible
printing on the editorial page.
By copy of this letter I am
expressing my appreciation to
these gentlemen for their help.
Unfortunately I do not have
Mr. Pippin's address.
Sincerely,
Jim Ivey

Sometimes You Have to Search for It, But There's Some Happy News


LAST WEDNESDAY afternoon, as
I was making one of my stops to put out
The Star on the news stands after the
,: paper was .printed, one lady remarked
as she picked up one of the papers from
, the rack, "Do you have any happy news
in this week's paper?"
That question sort of set the wheels
;-totuning and caused me to pause and
reflect if there was any happy news in
the paper and was that what people
were looking for?
After I got home, I looked through
the paper to see the end result and
found a few happy notes scattered
through the pages. If they weren't
Particularly happy for the lady who
asked the question, at least they were
happy for someone.
For the past several weeks, we
have had our share of sad news. A
young man getting killed in a tragic
accident; the school board faced with a
sizeable expenditure which they didn't
have budgeted; money problems with
all local government; people being
furloughed or losing their jobs through
industry cut-backs right here at Christ-


mas time.
It would take some extremely
happy news to make up for some of
these sad happenings, but luckily all the
news wasn't sad.




ETAO S1





It was happy news for the pretty
young lady who won the Jr. Miss
pageant. An announcement of a new
industry which wants to bring some
additional jobs this past week was good
and happy news. The news of Tommy
Pitts and Wayne Taylor resigning their
jobs was happy news for them because
it meant they were going on to
something bigger and better. There


were several other happy news stories
in the last few issues along that line, but
you get the drift.
ABOUT THAT NEW industry want-

ing to locate here in Gulf County: I
remember back in October when
George Tapper came before the County
Commission and asked them to grant,
sight unseen, a tax break for the
Material Transfer, Inc., firm to locate
their coal transloading facility here,
George assured the Commission they
would be doing the right thing to grant
the request because it would bring


more jobs to Gulf County in the future.
George was right. Even before
Material Transfer broke ground for
their plant, a satellite plant is making
plans to come here, provided they can







TIsey


get the tax break also.
From the initial presentation at the
Commission meeting last Tuesday
morning, it would appear as if the
satellite industry will employ more
people than Material Transfer.
We're glad to have them both and
may their businesses prosper and grow.
NEXT WEEK AT THIS time, it will


be Christmas eve. I haven't finished my
Christmas shopping yet. Let's face it, I
haven't even started!
Each and every year, I vow that
Christmas the next year will not catch
me having to rush around at the last
minute getting my Christmas shopping
done. If those who expect gifts from me
would cooperate by letting a hint or two
fall concerning what they would like for
Christmas, it might make the job
easier. I am not one of those people who
has the knack of finding something
unusual, useful or desirable for those on
my gift list. I have to work at it when I
get down to the serious business of gift
buying.
Actually, I don't even know what I
want for Christmas myself, other than
a day of peace and quiet, after the
grandchildren are sent home after
dinner.The morning will be anything
but peace and quiet.
Christmas around our house is
always a time of over indulging in
things good to eat. My intentions this
year are like they were at Thanksgiv-


ing... just to take a child's portion and
savour it as it is eaten.
I don't even intend to take down the
Christmas tree on Christmas day. I'll
do it the day after Christmas.
Christmas day is going to be for me
like last Thursday night was for
Houdini the cat.
As you recall, it was a brisk night
out last Thursday. The temperature got
down in the 30's that night and we had a
roaring fire going in the fireplace.
Houdini had his customary cold
weather spot on the rug in front of the
fireplace, when Frenchie sat down in
the rocker to do something. She was
rocking gently back and forth while
she was fiddling with whatever she was
doing. Houdini set his tail in motion and
it lazily swept back and forth under the
rocker as it rose and fell, with Houdini
getting his tail out just before the
rocker pinched it.
Houdini was not wasting any
energy and still doing what felt good to
him.
That is going to be my Christmas

CHAMBER OF Commerce
Port St. Joe, Fla.
Gentlemen:
For the past sixteen years,
with one exception, I have
travelled to Port Saint Joe to
fish for speckled trout during
Thanksgiving week. Usually I
am accompanied by several
friends and it is an annual
vacation to which we very
much look forward. This year,
due to some labor problems
experienced by our company,
only three of us were able to
make the trip and that trip
would have been spoiled if not
for the concern and assistance
offered by many fine citizens
of Port Saint Joe.
We arrived in Port Saint Joe
on Friday, November 27, 1981,
and fished that afternoon.
After stopping by Mr. Doll
Collier's place to eat some raw
oysters and purchase a few
supplies, we broke the axle on
our boat trailer at approxi-

Rise In


Timber
By Ralph J. Edenfield
County Forester
Recent income tax laws,
and cost share payments now
in effect have made invest-
ments in growing timber for
commercial purposes very
attractive.
This tax credit law provides
a ten percent deduction from
income taxes owed the year
timber is planted. The total
landowner cost of this planting
operation can be deducted
from gross income, before the
tax is figured, over a seven
year period following estab-
lishment. An amount up to
$10,00000'.- per year can be
treated in this manner.
A federally funded program
will supply up to 65 percent of
the cost of establishing stands
of timber to landowners who
apply and are approved.
Too, recent laws have re-
duced the maximum capital
gains tax for noncorporate
taxpayers to 20 percent on the
sale of timber.
It is believed that more and
more of the nations timber
will be supplied by the south-
eastern part of the country
with its long growing season.
This is evidenced by the

Statewide Assessment of basic
skills. This test, required by
Florida Law, shows whether
students, in 3, 5, 8, and 11 have
reached certain minimum
standards which all should
achieve in communication
skills (reading and writing)
and mathematics.
According -to Superinten-
dent Wilder, over a five-year
period (1977-78- 1981-82) all
Gulf County schools have
shown a steady increase in the
percent of students achieving
the minimum performance
standards. For example, since
the 1977-78 school year, High-
land View Elementary's stu-
dents have gained 26 percent-


Also, Port St. Joe High and
Wewahitchka High, grade 8,,
each made substantial gains
in both communications and
mathematics. From the Oc-
tober, 1980 testing to October,
1981 Port St. Joe High moved
from 79 percent to 90 percent
in the communications section
and 80 percent to 89 percent in
mathematics.
In April, 1981 for the first
time tenth graders were given
the Statewide Assessment
Test Part II, previously known
as the functional literacy test.
The district report showed
that of the 170 students tested,
93 percent passed SSAT II in
communications skills and 70
percent in mathematics skills.

Five Wewa Men Charged


with Wildlife Poaching


Five Wewahitchka men
have been arrested by the
Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission and
the Gulf County Sheriff's
office and charged with poach-
ing of wildlife and drug
violations. The arrests were
made last Thursday after
nearly eight months of invest-
tigation by the Game Com-
mission.
Game Commission agents,
Sheriff's deputies and investi-
gators from the State Attor-
ney's office served warrants
on Dixie Lee McDaniels, 25;
Richard Lindsay Wade, 29;
Lester 'Byrous Gortman, 22;
Charles H. Melvin, 36 and
Mark Yoder, 34.
In a court appearance short-
ly after their arrests, Wade
was released on a $3,000
property bond. The other
defendants were released by
County Judge David Taunton
on their own recognizance.
McDaniels was charged
with possession of stolen pro-
perty, felony possession of
marijuana and unlawful sale
of alligator meat. Yoder and
Gortman were charged with
alligator poaching and Melvin
was charged with illegal sale


of deer meat.
More arrests were expected
to follow but none had been
reported at press time yester-
day afternoon.
Those arrested were facing
only five counts at the time of
their arrests, but a Florida
Fish and Game Commission
spokesman said they expect to
serve warrants for about 25
more counts.
Investigators were said to
have seized some 600 pounds
'of alligator meat and a large
amount of deer meat during
the investigation. Three vehi-
cles were also seized at the
time of the arrests.
Investigators said they be-


lieve the five men were taking
alligators and deer at night
and selling the meat and
stolen property from one of
the suspect's homes.

AARP Has Christmas.


It was a happy time Mon-
day, even in the rain and cold,
as the St. Joseph Bay Chapter
of the AARP gathered in the
Union Hall on Sixth Street for
their Christmas party. Senior
Citizens from both the Port St.
Joe and Wewahitchka areas
gathered some 200 strong to
greet the yule season and
participate in the Christmas
program.
The hall was decorated with
window decorations and a
centerpiece of a huge Christ-
mas tree decorated with old
fashioned decorations such as
strings of popcorn.
Rev. Otis Stallworth opened
the inspiring program with
prayer and Howard Ogden, of
the First District office of the
Florida AARP, led the pledge
of allegiance to begin the
festivities.
The Christmas message
from Luke was read from a
hand lettered scroll by Dr.
John M. Stuart, again remind-
ing those present of the true
meaning of Christmas.
Fred Kleeb, Jr., led the
group in singing Christmas
carols with everyone joining
in. The traditional story of
Joseph and Mary and the baby
Jesus was told as it is


recorded in Matthew on their
flight to Egypt to escape from
King Herod.
Special music of the season-
was presented by the South-
ernaire Gospel Singers led by
Gloria Best. Mrs. Best ended
the special music program
with a solo, "The Lord's
Prayer"..
Then came Santa Claus and
all of his little elves who
brought joy by distributing
gifts of fruit to everyone.
Howard Ogden, the district
officer of AARP and all of the
members presented gifts to
Stiles Brown, president of the
local group. Dorothy Pfost
brought back memories to
everyone as she told of "Twas
the Night Before Christmas".

Choose Poinsettias With Care To


I Insure Long Colorful Display


THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, DEC. 17, 1981


Choral Concert Thursday


Evening at High School


Highly prized throughout
Florida and widely beloved as
a symbol of the Christmas
season is the Poinsettia. No
other flower can make such a
brilliant show of bright red
throughout the festive weeks
of December and January.
The poinsettia, Euphorbia
pulcherrima, is a member of
the spurge family which in-
cludes common ornamentals
like crown-of-thorns, copper-
leaf, castorbean and Florida's
colorful crotons.
The Poinsettia was intro-
duced into the United States
by our first ambassador to
Mexico, Joel Roberts Poin-


sett. He had some sent to his
home in Greenville, South
Carolina in 1925...and this
lovely Christmas flower has
since borne his name.
An interesting point about
poinsettias is their "flowers".
The true flowers are small,
green and yellow and incon-
spicuous. The showy red
parts, often called flowers, are
not parts of the flower;
instead, they are highly modi-
fied petal-like leaves, which
the botanist calls bracts. The
bracts are formed below each
flower.
Since the purchase of poin-
settias is a once-a-year thing


for most people several sug-
gestions on proper plant
selection are in order.
The poinsettia buyer should
do the following:
Select a plant which has
green foliage nearly to the soil
line. Old plants will usually
have experienced excessive
leaf drop. Foliage drop is also
caused by fluctuating tem-
peratures, gas fumes, soil
problems and plant pests.
The bracts should be large
and extend over the lower
green foliage. The most popu-
lar color in poinsettias is red.
However, there are numerous
shades of whites, pinks and
color combinations.
Select only plants with small
tight green button-like flower
parts in the center of the
bracts. These little buttons
will 'eventually develop into
open flowers. If the poinsettia
is already producing pollen,
Syou can be assured that a
portion of its useful display
life has already passed and
the bracts will begin to fade.
Poinsettias are predomi-
nately greenhouse grown as
pot plants for Christmas in
most of the United States, but
in South Florida they can be
utilized as colorful landscape
shrubs. In north Florida they


may be frozen to the ground
before flowering so are best
used as pot plants.
Another excellent use of
poinsettias is as cut flowers.
The bracts need to be treated
to coagulate the milky sap and
reduce wilting. Immerse the
cut end of the stem in hot
water for one minute and then
place immediately in cold
water. An alternate method is
to singe the cut end of the stem


over a flame for a second or
two and then place in cool
water. Cut the flowers at least
18 to 24 hours before they are
to be used and store in a cool
place.
Poinsettias make beautiful
house plants. If the new
varieties are properly water-
ed and placed in a cool, sunny,
draft free area the bracts will
remain lovely for one to two
months.

rect some of the deficiencies
simply because we do not have
enough use of the facilities to
warrant special attention and
because we don't have the
money". Murphy went on to,
say that some of the com-
plaints were unjustified since
the jail didn't use some of the
facilities complained about.
One instance was a com-
plaint filed that the jail
furnished no special facilities
for youthful offenders. "We
don't even keep them here",
Murphy said. "We send all our
youthful offenders to the youth
detention center in Bay Coun-
ty".
Sheriff Murphy said he
doesn't know what the bottom
line will be in the case. "They
have been after us for quite a
while about many. of these
things", the Sheriff said, "and
we have been doing what we
can to provide adequate de-
tention of our prisoners. They
might close us down in the
future or they might recognize
our limitations and our type
jail use. Nobody knows."

Port St. Joe's Sharks spent
the first week of the new

fourth in Class 2-A in the state.
They lost two of three games

Class 2-A and brought home
three wins in three games.
* Last Friday night, the
Sharks met the Florida High
Demons here in Port St. Joe in
an afternoon game and nipped
the Demons by two points, the
Sharks winning by 64-62.
The Sharks had a six point
lead at half time, but the

prevailed.
Marty Russ was the big gun
for the Sharks as he put 28
points on the scoreboard.
Jerry Filmore added 15 and
Anthony Skanes 12.
All the Demons except one

Gators had the Sharks playing
everyone in a 71-49 rout of the

scoring in double figures.

Dark Ages came when Reformation were Martin
igious-political, powers Luther and John Calvin. The
church and state united reformation was successful to
a degree. The strangle-hold of
t le church-state power .was
Broken. .
: There emerged from' this
struggle the Lutheran Church
.' in Germany, the Presbyterian
church in France. Other nha-
tions also came forward with
non-Catholic .churches.
BUT
The reformers didn't iake
a complete break with the old
S' system. The Lutheran church
)nI became the state church in
SGermany. The Presbyterian
r church was the state church in
France and:,the Anglican
(Episcopal) church became
Vthe state church in England.
Then,. these state churches
taxed the people to support the
churches. These state church-
es also practiced discrimina-
tion and milder forms of
persecutions against mem-
bers of the non-state churches
in their respective nations..
Even though the Protestant
i Catholics from the earlier
abuses of the powerful Union
*' .of state and church persecu-
Stions, the reformation left
many of the old abuses in the
new state churches. This new
S state-church relationship
S'" swept the old world.
SIt was from this background
I 6f continued persecution, by
S:the state-churches of Europe
that the early colonists fled to


America. But believe it or not,
the early American colonists
brought some of the evils of
state churches, of Europe to
America. The dominant
churches in the early colonies
began to establish their own
churches as the state churches
of the colonies. Even in
America there was religious
persecution by the state
churches- but it was 'not as
severe as that in protestant
Europe.. However, it was a
form of union between the
church and the state.
THE REAL BREAK
The memory of the dreadful
persecution of the state
churches of Europe and the,
'contemporary evidences of it
in the colonies, prodded our
founding fathers to determine,
that they would, once and for
all time, effect a complete
break between the church and
the state.
Thus, they decreed in the
First Amendment to the Con-
stitution that "Congress shall
make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise
thereof." This marked the
real break between the official
union of a government and a
church (denomination).
America did it!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Does the first amendment
mean that America'was de-
nouncing God or, religion?
Does this mean that the
government of America was
divorcing itself from God-or
wanted no part of God? No! A
thousand times NO!
Then, what does it mean?
Here it is-
That the government would
not use tax money to support
any church of any denomina-
tion; that the government
would not extend special fa-
vors to any.denomination or
church; that no church or
denomination should have any
official legislative or judicial
powers in the political arena;
that no church or denomina-
tion should have legal powers
to enforce its will on other
churches or denomination, or
non-church people; that the
government would not allow
the free exercise pf a church
or denomination to 'be hin-
dered.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE
There is a distinct differ-
ence between- the separation
of church and state AND the
separation of the nation from
God.
From the background indi-
cated above, one can under-
stand why our founding
fathers were concerned about
the separation' of church and
state.

Seminole Applies for

Seminole Electric Coop-

applied for Rural Electrifica-

of its long-term contract for
coal delivery to its power
plant near Palatka.
The Tampa based gener-

ating and transmission
Cooperative said the applica-
tion was made almost
immediately upon completion
of a borrowers environmental
report required as a
preliminary step by the REA.
Delivery of the coal will be


under terms of a three phase
water and rail contract com-
pleted earlier this fall. Coal
mined in western Kentucky
and southern Illinois will oe
shipped by Mapco,4Inc. by rail
to Mt. Vernon, Indiana, where
it will be loaded onto Central


Hutto Meets with Coast


Guard On Boating Laws
,Congressman Earl Hutto of this particular law. I am relieving some of the tension
met with representatives of confident that the Coast Guard between shrimpers so that
he U. S. Coast Guard last will step up their efforts bloodshed can be avoided,"
wegk in his continuing efforts despite strained resources said Hutto.


to crack down on violations
pertaining to the improper
documentation of ships that
weigh over five net tons and
operate as commercial ves-
sels.
At that meeting, Congress-
man Hutto was assured by the
Coast Guard that they would
step up their efforts to cite
those vessels operating ille-
gally. In addition, the Coast
Guard will, establish hotlines
whereby concerned Gulf Coast
fishermen can contact the
Coast Guard and report al-
leged violations.
Congressman Hutto said, "I
have, been involved with the
issue since coming to Con-
gress and I have been con-
cerned about the enforcement


which cover an array of
sensitive areas such as drug
enforcement, marine safety,
environmental protection and
illegal immigration. The law
must be equally applied and
equally enforced to not only
those operating undocu-
mented vessels but also to
those who sold these vessels
illegally in the first place."
In addition, Congressman
Hutto will be tentatively meet-
ing with other representatives
of the Federal Government
such as the Maritime Admini-
stration to discuss additional
measures to decrease 'the
number of commercial ves-
sels illegally operating in the
Gulf;
"I hope this will assist in


Gulf Lines barges and
transported down the Ohio and
Mississippi Rivers to the Gulf
of Mexico. It will then be mov-
ed along the Intracoastal
Waterway to Port St. Joe.
There it will be transloaded
onto unit rail trains for
delivery to the Palatka site
along routes that will take it
by Chattahoochee and
Jacksonville in north Florida.
Deliveries will begin in late
1982. The first of Seminole's
first two 600-megawatt
generators at the new plant is
scheduled to begin service in
mid-1983 and the second in
mid-1985. At full operation, the
plant will require some 3
millioif tons of coal annually.

Boy Scout Troop Active


Scoutmaster Pat McFar-
land made every Rotarian
wish he were a boy again last
Thursday, as he told the tale of
the recent Scout canoe trip
down the Chipola River.
McFarland said he and four
other adults took 21 boys on
the three-day trip over the
Halloween week end.
"All of us had a ball!" he
said enthusiastically.
McFarland said the activi-
ties such as the canoe trips are
stirring interest in the local
Scout troop once more. "We
have 20 active Scouts now and
more coming in every day. We
will have a Court of Honor in
the very near future and we
have four or five who can
possibly, come up for their
Eagle rating". McFarland
said this is the most boys near
the rank of Eagle the local


troop has ever had.
McFarland said the Scouts
are making plans for the year
ahead, which includes another
canoe trip down the Chipola in
the spring and a trip to the
World's Fair in Knoxville,
Tenn., in June. "We are
already at work making plans
to go", he said.
The latest canoe trip took
three days and covered about
65 miles of some of the most
beautiful wilderness in the
State of Florida.
In a business session, the
club received Dr. Wayne
Hendrix as a new member in
the club. Hendrix, a native of
Tate, Georgia has practiced
medicine in Port St. Joe for 32
years. He was a former
Rotarian but had to drop out
for health reasons a few years
ago.


The club adopted a resolu-
tion supporting the formation
of a branch college campus in
Panama City by Florida State
University.
A guest of the club was
Judge John Hodges of Tampa.

The Poet

Peasant
A poet peasant, I, as poets go,
No doubt you are aware,
I write of only things I know
And like for you to share.
My style is crude as life itself,
As known by those like me.
Less educated, like myself
But this, I'm sure you see.
No goals have I for plateaus
high,
Nor recognition great,
I'll let this old world pass me
by,
So, don't my style berate.
Just let me be and I'll go way
To bother you no 'mo,
Then you can brighten up
your day,
With Keats, and Guest, and
Poe.
Or, do I sense that you like me
As poet peasants are?
For, why else then, I ask of
thee,
You've read me down this.

Stone Crab For The Holidays Ahead


If you have never tried stone crab claws, then you have
missed out on one of the true delicacies on earth! The claw
meat of the stone crab is rich, sweet, and firm textured. The
: claws are removed and precooked on board the boat as the
crabs are taken from the traps. The claws are then frozen to
preserve quality.
The holidays ahead provide the perfect opportunity to try
this gourmet food. The claws can be cracked to allow guests
7 to slip the succulent meat out with cocktail forks. Served cold
or hot ith melted butter or warmed Mustard Sauce, they
will quickly disappear.. ,
The major supply of stone crab comes from the Florida
SKeys and Miami. Generally the demand exceeds the supply,
however, there currently is a generous supply available.
Check your local markets now and stock your freezer for the
gala season just ahead. For additional free recipes write:
Florida Department of Natural Resources, Bureau of Mar-
keting & Extension Services, Douglas Building, Suite 905,
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida 32303.
TO PREPARE STONE CRAB CLAWS: Thaw stone crab
claws if frozen. Crack all sections of shell with a hammer or
nutcracker. Remove the shell and movable pincer, leaving
,the meat attached to the remaining pincer.
MUSTARD SAUCE
1/2 cup sour cream 2 teaspoons melted butter or
1-1/2 tablespoons prepared margarine
mustard 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/8 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients. Heat at a very low. temperature,
just until warm, stirring occasionally. Do not boil. Makes ap-
proximately 2/3 cup sauce. Serve with hot or cold stone crab
claws.
SWEET & SOUR SAUCE
1/2 cup catsup 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup orange marmalade 2 teaspoons dry mustard
3 tablespoons red wine vine- 1 teaspoon horseradish
gar 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon soy sauce
In a saucepan mix all ingredients together and heat until hot
and bubbly. Serve warm. (AFNS)

Tim states, "One of my
greatest loves is teaching

to teach kids about God, and,
in today's world, that's what
they need to be taught more
of!"
