Water is flowing freely south of the Dead Lakes now, was the point of contention the entire year as factions
after being shut off and causing one of the most serious fought back and forth, some wanting them shut off and
controversies in the County during 1981. This structure others wanting it flowing freely as the above photo shows.

year long, placing interest in the
ingredient, water, at the forefront of
the news all year long.
It was sortof an ironic situation,
since:Gulf County has plenty of
water; it .just had problems where
water was being used.
On the agriculture front, the
county saw the emergence of row
crops as a serious business here in
Gulf County, then saw lack of water
(rain) as threatening that young new
industry. Drought for the 'past two
years has dealt Gulf County crops a
blow. This year 70 percent of the corn
crop and a sizeable percentage of
small grains were ruined by lack of
Ladk of water also affected the
shipping industry in the county, as a
low Apalachicola River, less than a
foot on the guage at one time,
curtailed water shipment on the river

halted in October, but a reading of
five feet on, Tuesday may get this
operation started once more.
Water, the lack 6f it, also
endangered the economic community
of the south end of Gulf County during
the year, when someone sabotaged a
drain system at the lower end of the
Dead Lakes, shutting off the flow of
water down the Chipola River, which
provides water for two Port St. Joe
industries. At the time, the City of
Port St. Joe was also receiving some
of its drinking water supply from the
river source, since two of three of the
City's water wells had collapsed.
On tbp of the obvious problems
with water was the esthetic and
sports use of the two rivers in Gulf
County which were made public with
a regular donnybrook over the
appointment of a Dead Lakes Man-
agement Committee and a decision
over whether the Lakes should be,
drained or not.
Gulf and Calhoun County got into
a tiff over who should have a majority
of members on the Board and .as a
result, Governor Bob Graham took
over the task of appointing a new
board, coming up with four of five
members after an emergency situa-
tion arose over opening or closing of
the Dead Lakes gates.
The Dead Lakes fight was
between those who thought draining
the Lakes would allow water weeds,
which have become prolific in the
lakes to be killed and those who
thought the Lakes should be left high

All of this drama and its
threatened consequences made the
water problems in Gulf County the top
story for 1981 in Gulf County.

More than 900 of Gulf County's 7,000 registered voters
have had their names removed from the voting lists, after
failing to comply with the activities which keep their names
on the voting lists as active voters, according to Supervisor of
Elections, Cora Sue Robinson.
Mrs. Robinson said her department started the work of
purging the voting lists, as state law requires, back in
October, when notices were sent out to many registered
voters that their names would be removed unless they sent
back a renewal card, which would re-instate their names
on the lists. "More than 900 failed to send the cards back, so
we were forced by state law to remove their names from the
rolls", she said.
Mrs. Robinson stressed the fact that the names of
the 900 plus voters have already been taken off the
county list.' 'If they vote in the elections in 1982,-they will
have to come in and re-register", she said.
For this reason, Mrs. Robinson recently approached the
County Commission and asked for permission to publish the
names of those who have had their names removed from the
rolls. "Maybe they didn't pay any attention to the cards, or
forgot about mailing them back", she pointed out. At any
rate, the list is reproduced in this week's issue of The Star on
Mrs. Robinson said she was alarmed at the large number
of voters who did not return their registration cards three
months ago, when they were first notified by mail their:
names would be dropped from the rolls. "Of the cards mailed
out, only about 600 sent them back, properly signed",:-
Robinson said. -
Florida law requires that the voter rolls be purged
by the Supervisor of Elections periodically, and those
who haven't cast a vote in the previous two elections
must be notified their names have been dropped from
the rolls, and the only way they can get back on the rolls
is to re-register.
The cards sent out by Robinson's office in October were
cards requesting re-registration by the individuals who
Mrs. Robinson said voters may reinstate their names on
the voter list by coming by her office and signing a simple
form. "We are open every day in the Gulf County Courthouse.,
from 9:00 a.m., to 5:00 p.m.," Robinson said. The
registration books will remain open until 30 days prior to
each election to be held in 1982.
Ship Tied Up Waiting for Business
Economic conditions over the nation have caused
problems all over, part of which is in the shipping industry.
Even when some have a problem, some benefit from it.
Port St. Joe is the beneficiary of the problem of one shipping
line, as one of their ships, the "Amazonia", owned by the
American Atlantic Steamship Lines of New York, flying the
American flag, came into Port St. Joe early this month and
has been here ever since.
The ship is tied up at the docks here in Port St. Joe for a
period of 30 to 60 days, waiting for the economic picture to get
a little better in the shipping world?The crew has gone home
and only a skeleton crew remains on board the ship.
According to George G. Tapper, operator of a steamship
agency here in Port St. Joe, there are several of these ships
tied up at the present time, waiting for the water shipping
business to pick up.
The "Amazonia" is a new ship, built in 1980 in New

Burglars Enter Gay's Service
Burglars broke into Troy
Gay's Standard Station some
time during the night Tuesday
night, according to the Gulf

Sheriff's spokesman, inves-

burglary was discovered Wed-

station owner, Troy Gay,
missed 20 cartons of cigar-
ettes and two cases of beer.
McLeod said the thieves
evidently entered the station
through a window on the south
side of the building. "They
replaced the window and a

to tell anyone was inside",

Christmas! What a
day- what a happy
what a blessed day!
Of all the 365 days
year, there is not another day
that can approach Christmas
in unspeakable impact in so
many different areas of life.
Both pagans and Christians
are the recipients of the
blessedness of the season.
Almost one third of the total
population of the world is
committed to a belief in the
Christ of Christmas.
Man's calendars of time on
earth are dated from the time
of the birth of Christ. B.C.
denotes years of time before
Christ. A.D. denotes the years
of time since his birth. There-
fore, all mankind is directly
affected by that first Christ-
The Christmas trade is the
greatest boon to the American
economy of the entire year. In
fact, many businesses in our
nation fail or succeed on the
Christmas time is one of the
best treatments for unhappy
and troubled families. Family
gatherings, whether they be
large or small, are marvelous
times of healings of trouble
between husbands and wives,
or between parents and child-
ren, or between in-laws.
Unselfish giving? Contrary
to what so many people say,
people do not give in order to
receive at the Christmas
season. There must be more
unselfish giving at Christmas
than all the other days of the
year. There is something
about Christmas that makes
people want to give just
because they love another-
not because they expect to
receive in return.
Churches, charitable orga-
nizations, civic and fraternal
groups go out at this time of
the year seeking people who
desperately need help. No
such massive efforts are made
at any other time of the year.
Special Christmas meals
are provided for prisoners,
hospital patients and nursing
home patients. Not only are
such meals provided but the
message of the Christ of
Christmas is couched in a
carol, a Christmas card or a
Even the despicable liquor
.industry gets on the band-
wagon- decking their outlets
in Christmas decorations.
They urge people to give
liquor for Christmas.
Oh boy- how TV pulls out
all the stops to produce an
avalanche of Christmas spe-'
cials for days and weeks
So, my friends, when you
find a person who says Christ-
mas is just another day, you
have found a person who is out
of touch with all reality.
There is no other day in the
same league with Christmas.
No other season can approach
it. No other day in world
history has affected so many
people of the world in so many
Why all this about Christ-
It represents God's great
love for mankind- He gave
His only Son to save men from
hell for heaven.
It represents Christ's great
gift of Himself as the means of

Many Courtesies Appreciated
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
You and your family have
been so nice and helpful to
Eva and me since our arrival
in Port St. Joe on October 5,
1981. All of you have assisted
us in every way possible.. We
appreciate so very much all of
the many courtesies shown us.
Also, all of you have sup-
ported the hospital in all its
efforts. Your ongoing cover-
age of all the events of the
hospital has been outstanding.
I have called on you many
times for your assistance, and
you have gone far above the
line of duty to assist the
hospital. I am not only speak-
ing for myself, but for all of
the employees. We will always
be grateful to you.
I wish for you and yours a
very joyous Holiday Season
and New Year filled with

CHRISTMAS WAS UNUSUAL at
CHRISTMAS WAS UNUSUAL at
our house this year. Frenchie cooked a
turkey, but it wasn't to eat until the day
after Christmas. The dressing Was
made, but it was set aside for the day
after Christmas, and the day after, and
the day after.
I don't think Frenchie made the
first pie or cake for Christmas. She did
whip up some cookies a few days before
Christmas, but we had no gaggle of
sweets to tempt my already ample
belly to become more ample.
I told you earlier I was going to
settle for a child's portion this
Christmas, and Frenchie made sure I
did by not fixing your normal Christ- .
Christmas Eve, all the kids,
outlaws, in-laws and grandchildren
came over for an evening meal and
We had chili.

There were a few more goodies to
go with the chili, but the main course
Christmas day I had a Pepsi-Cola
for dinner and then at supper time, the
family got together again and put on the
feed bag en masse.
This time,' it was seafood. We had
some shrimp, some grouper, raw
oysters. a bouillabaisse Frenchie con-
cocted with plenty of shrimp, oysters,
grouper and whatever she could get her
hands on. It wasn't your usual
every-day Christmas fare, but it was
good and it was filling. After it was all
over I had to skip dessert. It was just as
delicious and filling as turkey and
The turkey and dressing was

GEORGE McLAWHON messed up
my Christmas this year. He had to go to
Oklahoma over the Christmas holidays
to spend some time with his son there.
George usually invites us over on
Christmas .day to sample his taste of
ambrosia he always whips up for
Christmas. George usually makes up a
wash tub full of ambrosia at Christmas
time and he didn't this year. I think this
was what made Christmas seem so
George always presides at the table
on Christmas day afternoon, dipping
ambrosia -and passing out the fruit
George is going to have to make up
for that somehow or other when he gets
back to town.
WE HAD COMPANY Christmas.
Frenchie's brother and his wife came to
visit, as they usually do on Christmas.
Christmas Eve, Gene Raffield gave
us a tour of his new houseboat which
made our day on Thursday. Gene has
the perfect hide-away fixed up for he
and his family to get away from it all
when they want to.
Plenty of comfort and no tele-
phones. Nobody could ask for anything
more relaxing and enjoyable.
Then on Christmas day, Martin
Perry had to take an inspection tour of
St. Vincent's Island, and- he took us
along. It was the first time I had ever
seen St. Vincent Island and I can assure
you, it is something to see.
The Wildlife Service could make
their budget for managing the Island

You could retire as a millionaire. With our great
new Individual Retirement Account, you could retire
with as much as $2,133,699 or even more. It all
depends on your age, annual contribution and when
How can $500, $1,000, or $2,000 a year build up
so quickly? Because your interest, which is com-
pounded daily is tax-free until you retire. And not
only do you enjoy yearlytax deferments, you can
deduct your annual contribution from your taxable
income: finally a tax shelter for the not-so-rich.
Now every wage earner is eligible. Whether
you're covered by an employer pension plan or not,
you can put up to the maximum $2,000 in an IRA
($2,250 if your spouse is non-employed or $4,000 joint
deduction if both are employed).
Earn 15% now, plus Free Checking. To get your
IRA off to a flying start, we offer a better-than-money-
fund return of 15% (annual rate) through June 30th
on your IRA- a guaranteed high yield in a declining
rate market. And everyone opening an IRA in
January for $1,000 or more will also receive
Free Checking. .
Fixed or variable return? The choice is yours.
After earning 15% through June 30th, you have the.
added flexibility of either of two high yield
interest return plans. Earn a fixed yield, initially
equal to the two-year Treasury Note rate. Or a variable
rate, such as the 182-day Treasury Bill discount
rate. With Florida National's custom tailored IRA, you
decide which type return is best--the choice is yours!
An insured investment that insures your future.
Our IRA is a sound investment plan for everyone
concerned about the uncertain future of their Social
Security benefits. It's a great feeling to know that
your IRA is going to be there when you retire. At
Florida National, your future is protected and your
investment is insured by the FDIC. Not all IRAs
offer this security
-Whether you want an IRA for the tax savings now
or the retirement security later, or both, we provide
a 15% rate, a variable or fixed yield, free checking plus
the strength of a great statewide bank.

Of sun-split clouds- and

You have not dreamed of-

High in the sunlit silence.
I've chased the shouting wind

My eager craft through
footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious,

Where never lark, or even

Put out my hand and touched

Dept. of Ag. Sounds Last
Call for Tree Seedlings
Amidst the pleasurable dis-
tractions of the holiday season
the Florida Department of
Agriculture sounded a last call
for landowners to order tree
seedlings -for reforestation
projects this year.
With most of the seedlings
already gone, FDACS Division
of Forestry nurseries still can
supply slash and loblolly
pines, a few catalpas and red
cedars, nursery officials re-
Those landowners planning
to start Christmas tree farms
with red cedars should place
orders immediately or be
prepared to wait another
entire year, for fewer than one
million are left in the Forestry
nurseries, officials said.
Spruce, sand and Virginia
pines, also recommended for
Christmas tree plantations in
Florida, already have been
John O'Meara said that the
remaining tree stock includes
13 million slash and 4 million
loblolly pines, and 20,000 ca-
An extra heavy demand for
seedlings developed this win-
ter as landowners replaced
trees lost in the abnormally
dry weather in parts of the
state last summer., In addi-
tion, many landowners in-
creased their plantings to cash
in on the strong market
indicated for wood in the
O'Meara said that while
orders should be placed im-
mediately or else the trees
may be sold to others, the
seedlings may be picked up as
late as March 15, 1982.
In North Florida's commer-
cial timber producing belt,
planting is carried out almost
entirely in the winter period of
dormancy in order to give the
seedlings the maximum
chance for survival.
Slash and loblolly pines are
among Florida's best pines for
the fastest, most profitable
growth of wood fiber, while
cedars not only are suitable
for commercial Christmas
tree growth but also for shade
and for landscaping purposes.
The broadleaf catalpa tree,

* A IN WASHINGTON *
At this time of the year,
everyone has a tendency to
reflect over the past twelve
months and the events that im-
pressed them the most during
that time. Americans have seen
many unusual things occur in'
1981, both good and bad, and
certainly most were historical.
Being in Washington and
witnessing a presidential inaug-
uration last January was a very
special thrill for me and serves
as one of the best reminders of
the privilege of living in a free
country. The highest office in
one of the most powerful
countries in the world changes
from one man to another, even
one political party to another,
with a smoothness and con-
tinuity which possibly no other
country in the world enjoys.
Consider how often leadership
in other nations is transferred
and the entire governmental
system goes through radical
and extremely unsettling
changes and sometimes even
America has for many years
exercised this official act with
no threat to our stability
because we truly are a free-
country governed by free
On the heels of the inaug-
uration, the hostages,
prisoners of a hostile country
led by a fanatic, were finally
released to return home safely,
once again free. A grateful
country welcomed them back
with a fresh surge of patriotism
born out of their suffering.

phoned and wrote their Con-
gressmen by the hundreds of
thousands relaying their wishes
for legislation on the budget
and tax cuts to be passed. As a
matter of fact, there were so
many letters that more people
had to be brought in by the
Post Office to help move the
mail because it jammed up the
"Capitol Hill" post offices for
weeks. But citizens spoke to
their Representatives and told
them how to vote, and the
result was passage of the
budget and tax cuts by the
Congress. This is government

When an attempted
assassination resulted in Presi-
dent Reagan being shot, Jim
Brady nearly killed, and many
security people wounded, an
awesome horror settled over all
of us. We saw it happen again
here at home in America. We
could not believe it even when
we saw the films repeatedly on
TV. Fortunately, the President
survived the shooting, as did
the others who were wounded,

Brady has been slow. This

Terrorism has increased in
recent years and the climax in
1981 probably was the
assassination of Anwar Sadat.
It was extremely difficult for
people around the world to
understand how it could
happen so easily to one of to-
day's outstanding statesmen.
Sadat's death had an im-
measurable impact because he
was a powerful leader and a
strong ally of the United
States. Having met him some
time ago when I was on a trip
to Egypi as a member of the
House Armed Services Com-
mittee, I was very impressed by
his dedication and loyalty.

does we must remember not
only the grim side, but also the
good which our country stands
for as well. And at this time of

should not forget the
