Appraiser Files Suit Against Board
Asking Courts to Force Payment of Office Budget Request
Gulf County Property Appraiser Joyce
Williams is taking the Gulf County Commission
In a Writ of Mandamus filed in the courts in
December, Williams is asking the court to force
the Gulf County Commission to pay her office
$4,057.00, she says ner office is du6 for
operational purposes for the first quarter. '
Williams charged in her suit that the
respondents' (County Commission) refusal to
pay is a direct and unambiguous violation of
their ministerial legal duty to make quarterly
payments to the petitioner based upon the
petitioner's budget as finally approved by the
Department of Revenue pursuant to Florida
Williams billed the Commission for $23,-
788.25 in October as one-fourth of the budget
money approved for her office by .the state
Department of Revenue.
The county paid the office $19,446.19, one
quarter of the amount which the Commission
approved for the operational budget of the office
in their budget deliberations.
The suit brings to a head a disagree-
ment between Williams and the Commis-
sion in which the Commission wanted the
Appraiser to stay within a five percent
budget increase and set her budget at
$84,000 which would meet their criteria.
Williams asked for $93,000 and the State
Department of Revenue said she should
have $95,000. Williams is suing for the
When asked to comment on her actions,
Williams said "The writ speaks for itself".
Williams makes 15 points in her suit, which
was prepared by. a firm of Tallahassee
attorneys, outlining the Board's failure to take
.the proper steps to oppose her budget request
and their refusal to meet the financial needs of
COUNTY TO OPPOSE
The County Commission has instructed their
attorney, William J. Rish, to oppose the suit,
stating their position in the matter.
The Commission will defend their quarterly
budget payment in Octqoer as being necessary
due to the lack of a property assessment roll on
which to base tax reVdhues saying Williams,
herself, is responsible for the lower payment in
The Board instructed all offices. in the
Courthouse to continue their operations based on
last year's budget amounts until an assessment
roll was presented and a new budget could be
worked up. Mrs. Williams' office was paid the,
quarterly operational funds based on this
amount and the Board's instructions on spending
pending passage of a new budget.
The County also is defending its operations
based on an agreement reached with Williams
and the Department of Revenue for an amount
which was lower than her request or the DOR
direction. Rish says both Williams and DOR
were familiar and agreed with the interim
financial plan. On the day after the agreement
was reached Williams changed her mind and
made her formal request for her original budget
The County refused to pay it.
The Board is armed with a letter which
Williams wrote to the Department of Revenue
asking that the limits of the law for opposing her
budget be waived and that the county be allowed
to file their objections at a late date, which the
The County's fiscal year starts on October 1,
the date of Williams quarterly payment request.
Tax bills went into the mails the last week in
December, because of the property roll delay,
which resulted in a delay in tax receipts. The
quarter beginning this month is the first quarter
in which offices in the Courthouse were supposed
to have requested a full budget amount.
In Williams' case, however,, her quarterly
request will be more than the Commission
agreed to pay in each quarter of the year,
provided she still sticks with her $95,000 budget
The Commission answered the writ on
Tuesday of this week. After the answer is
received by the courts, a hearing will be-
scheduled for the two parties to come before the:
judge provided one side doesn't relent before the::
After 17 years of motorized mail
delivery here in Port St. Joe and over the
nation, the United States Postal Service is
entering a program they call "de-motori-
zation" in order to save fuel and money.
Postmaster Tom Sapp said this week
that one of the local routes will be
delivered by a postal service employee on
a bicycle, with the remaining two routes
still being' served by motorized carriers.
It was all the way back in 1965-66 when
the last bicycles were used for carriers to
deliver the mail here in Port St. Joe. The
Jeep-like vehicles were pressed into
'service at that time and have served the
"department ever since.
"This is a nation program of de-motor-
ization" Postmaster Sapp said. "We're"
going to use bicycles in areas where we
can use them and get the job done within
the time limits."
Bicycles were used for years by the
Postal Service, but they were replaced by
the' motor vehicles in order to use less
carriers to cover the same areas. Now the
bicycles are being -pressed into service
again in areas where population is
concentrated, allowing for the same
delivery time with less cost.
Here in Port St. Joe, mail carrier
Stanley Winfield received the first bicycle
carrier to be placed into service and is

Postmaster Sapp said it is still undeter-
mined whether or not other routes will be
converted to bicycles. -Star photo

The Gulf County School
Board wa( informed at their
regular meeting Tuesday that
all the asbestos material had

orders from the State Depart-

all sealing, painting, and
acoustical materials from
school buildings which con-
Superintendent Walter Wil-

rooms would need more work,
as removing the original ma-

Board expects to do this extra
work during the summer.
The two county high schools
still contain the asbestos ma-
terial, since removal here is a
major undertaking, which will
mean completely closing off
the buildings when-r the re-
moval work starts. "We will

Homestead Exemption Notices Going Into The Mail
10% ofHomeowners Must File New Application to Test Entitlement
The Homestead exemption
has never been worth more
than it is this year.
But some homeowners will
notice that the rules are dif-
ferent when they receive their
renewal notice this week. This
year, the state Law is requir-
* ing some homeowners to pro-
ve again that they qualify for

dreds of dollars in savings on
The Florida law is trying to
make sure that people who are
not entitled to the full $25,000
exemption for the five year
resident requirement do not
Since 1980 the property tax
exemption for people who live
in a home they own has in-
creased from $5,000 to $25,000
for five-year residents of
Florida. That can mean as
much as $500.00 in reduced
property taxes per household
going to local governments,
school boards and other taxing
bodies. This year marks the
final stage of a three-phase in-
crease in the Homestead Ex-
emption approved by Florida
voters in September 1980.,
Because many Florida pro-
perty owners are newcomers
and may be tempted to falsely
claim five-year residency, the
State wants to screen a ran-
dom slice of all property tax-
payers and make them re-
apply for the Homestead Ex-
"It's a test to see if people
are truly entitled to the ex-
emption, it is also an attempt
to curb fraud, because exemp-
tions have gotten to the point
now where they are worth a lot
of money," said Joyce D.
Williams, Property Ap-
praiser, Gulf County.
People found guilty of filing
a false exemption report and
paying reduced taxes on that
basis may be liable. Ninety
percent of the people who have
received homestead exemp-
tions in the past will receive a
routine renewal card in the
mail early this month. These
property owners wishing to
renew their exemptions would
simply have to fill out the card
and mail it back. But the ten
percent who are selected at
random to reapply for the ex-
emption must fill out a detail-
ed questionnaire concerning
voter registration, auto
ownership, driver's license
number and other items. It is
the same process as applying
for the initial exemption.
The most important part
concerns the recording of the
property owner's deed. A
Homeowner must be able to
identify the book volume and
page on which his deed is
recorded in County records.
He also must report the date of
occupancy of his home and the
date the deed was recorded.
"I really hope the public will
cooperate with us and not feel
that we are asking them to do
something which isn't
necessary, but that the law
says that this has to be done,"
says Joyce Williams, Proper-
The deadline to apply for or
renew Homestead Exemp-
tions is March 1, and it is very
important that they be filed
before the deadline. People
who have lived in Florida less
than five years are eligible on-
ly for $5,000 exemptions on
property taxes. An Applicant
must consider the home his
permanent place of residence
as of January 1, on this year.
Additional exemptions of
$500.00 each are available for
the blind, the disabled and
widows An increased exemp-
tion for the elderly has been
discontinued. People who
have been totally and per-
manently disabled in the
course of military service
may receive a full exemption
from property taxes.

At least 14 voters in Wakulla

A new year, 1982, is here-
NOW! This new year finds our
entire world in agony- war,
famine, oppression, crime,
depression, inflation, disease.
Many in our world perish to
death every day.
We keep hearing that one

go to bed hungry every night.
Also, one third of the people of
our world are dominated by

Fortunately, Gulf County
has been spared the ravages
of Communism and the dark
spectre of people dying of star-

share of needy people. The
true character of our county is
revealed by the attitude of the
"haves" toward the "have
nots.'.' Surely, our people will
reach out a helping hand to
those in genuine need.
However, much of the
poverty and need in America
is self-imposed. Too many feel
that the government owes
them a living. Liquor, laziness
and irresponsibility has pro-
duced an army of professional
panhandlers who expect work-
ing people to nurse them
Society is not obligated to
reach out a helping hand to
self imposed need.
What does America face in
1982? A deepening recession?
An old fashioned depression?
A resurgence of inflation?
Escalating crime? Waste and
fraud in government? Col-
lapse of our economy? A grow-
ing arms race with Russia?
War?- conventional or
nuclear? Any or all of these
are indeed grim possibilities!
Since American society is
"hooked" on its so called "life-
styles", the nation can expect
more of that which we have
experienced in recent years.

paign is launched to lessen their
Beginning on January 25, we will be
into the Year of the Dog.
I have talked to several in the past
years who have felt each of those par-
ticular years were the collective and
specific "Year of the Dog" since they
seemed to have the run of the place.
What's to make this official Year of the
Dog any different?
SIn the official Year of the Dog, the
zodiac signs of the lunar calendar point
to the dog, but I don't know if it will help
people any or not.
Those people in and around Port St.
Joe and the nation who are out of work
already knew it was the Year of the
Dog, even before it was officially an-
nounced. I heard one of them say just
the other day, "It's going to be a dog eat
dog situation here for a while until the
economy gets in better shape."
There are societies who consider a
dog a delicacy. If things in the economy
don't get a bit brighter, quick, there
might be others who will try this dish.
I can't see where it would be a very
good year for dogs unless you are con-
sidering them as wine, and the Year of
the Dog would translate that dogs taste
better this year than last.

with a young southern lady whose

83 women and bilking them of their
money and possessions.
Using the southern lady's ex-
pletive, "You dog you!" to apply to Mr.

dog or not. He has problems.

would have 'problems marrying 83

The U.S. Department of
Agriculture has changed its
regulations to make it possible
for more people to get single-
family home loans through
USDA's Farmers Home Ad-
Charles W. Shuman, ad-
ministrator of the USDA rural
credit agency, said the revised
rules change the income
eligibility criteria, permit
funds for approved solar
heating, and make numerous
changes to clarify and
simplify operation of the agen-
cy's single-family housing
The Farmer's Home Ad-
ministration has a wide range
of housing programs, in-
cluding loans for single-family
homes, housing repair and
rehabilitation loans, rural ren-
tal housing, farm labor hous-
ing, and, self-help housing
Before the new regulations
were implemented, they were
reviewed and revised exten-
sively, Shuman said.
One of the major changes is
the elimination of a single, na-
tionwide income eligibility
level. Previously, only
families with incomes below
$15,600 were considered eligi-
ble for Farmers Home-hous-
ing loans, except in Alaska
Income ceilings now vary by
economic areas and are based
on a percentage of the area
median income. Low income
is defined as 80 percent of the
area median income.
Applicants who qualify for
moderate-income loans will
pay interest rates prevailing
when the loan is closed. The
current interest rate charged
by Farmers Home is 13.25 per-
For those with incomes at or
below 80 percent of the area
median income level, the
agency provides "interest
credits," which reduce the
amount of interest the bor-
rower pays, sometimes to as
low as one percent.

Avocados from Florida
have special qualities that
make them different from

flourish in Florida grow
nearly twice the size of other
avocados. Because of their
bigger size they make very
attractive and deliciously

meaty fillings, both hot and
cold. They're also terrific
serving containers for dips

Florida avocados is that they

You could retire as a millionaire. With our great
new Individual Retiremeht Account, you could retire
with as much as $2,133,699 or even more. It all
depends on your age, annual contribution and when
you retire. .
How can $500, $1,000, or $2,000 a year build up
so quickly? Because youth interest, which is com-
pounded daily is tax-free until you retire. And not
only do you enjoy yearly tax 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

Shrimp Takes On An Italian Accent
What better way to
entertain friends or to treat the family than to introduce
shrimp one of the all-time best-loved foods in an old-
time favorite such as lasagna.
Shrimp Lasagna exemplifies the versatility of this popular
shellfish. Though the recipe requires only 3/4 pound of
shrimp, it will provide 6 servings, proving that it can be easi-
ly included in even very moderate budgets. Medium shrimp,
31 to 35 count per pound, is recommended for best value.
Shrimp provides high quality nutrition at a minimum of
calories, which is another holiday plus.
This delightful recipe features typically Italian seasonings
and includes generous amounts of mozzarella, Parmesan,
and cottage cheeses. It requires only 35 minutes baking time
and can even, be' baked ahead of time for convenience.':
3/4 pound cooked, peeled, 1 teaspoon salt
and deveined shrimp, 1 teaspoon sugar
fresh or frozen 1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons margarine or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
butter 1/2 pound lasagna noodles
3/4 cup chopped onion 1/4 cup sliced pitted black
1 large clove garlic, minced olives
2 cans (8-ounces each) toma- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
to sauce cheese
1 cante (6-once) tomato 1 pint large curd cottage
1/2 cup water cheese, drained
3 teaspoons basil 3 tablespoons grated Parme-
2 teaspoons oregano san cheese
Thaw shrimp if frozen. Set aside 12 shrimp for garnishing.
Cut remaining shrimp into pieces 1/2-inch long. Melt
margarine in saucepan. Add onion and garlic; cook until.
tender, but not brown. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste,
water and seasonings; mix well. Simmer 25 minutes to blend
flavors. While sauce is simmering cook noodles according to
package directions or until desired tenderness. Fold cut
shrimp and 1/2 of the sliced olives into sauce. Layer 1/3 of the
noodles, mozzarella and cottage cheese, and sauce into a
2-quart shallow baking dish. Repeat 2 times. Garnish top with
reserved shrimp and olives. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Cover baking dish with foil and crimp it to edges of dish.
Bake in moderate oven, 350F., for 20 minutes, remove foil
and bake 15 minutes longer. Let stand 15 minutes before serv-
ing. Makes 6 servings.

Florida's Traffic Deaths
Climbing Toward Record
Florida's traffic deaths are
climbing toward a record year
said the Florida Highway
As of December 17, 1981,
2,918 persons have been killed
on Florida's streets and high-
ways since January 1, 1981.
This is 39 more than were
killed in all of 1980.
The present trend, about
eight percent above the same
period of 1980, may put the
1981 death total well over 3,000
and will be an all-time high fbr
Colonel Eldrige Beach said,
"It is a shame that traffic
deaths do not draw the atten-
tion that more violent deaths
such as murder get. If-it could -
be said that cities the size of
Safety Harbor or Wauchula
had all of their citizens killed,
it would probably make more
of an impact."
"One large city received
nationwide attention because
of almost 600 murders com-
mitted, but five times that
many will have died on
Florida's highways this year.
All premature deaths, regard-
less of cause are tragic.

them are brought on by
mankind and could have been

Proper Planting Care
Gets Good Results
By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director
Plantings properly incor-
porated into an overall design
create a landscape that is both
beautiful and functional. If
care is taken to properly
prepare the. soil and
transplant the shrub or tree it
can. grow into a well shaped,
healthy plant. However, if
preparation is careless and
improperly done the plant can
become poorly shaped, weak
and may eventually die. My
information for this article
was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J. Black.
Container grown plants are
readily available in Florida.
These plants can be planted
anytime of the year provided
proper moisture levels are
maintained. Plants grown in
containers too long become
"root bound". This condition
can be treated by cutting or
breaking up the root mass dur-
The following are guidelines
for planting container grown
plants: Dig the hole one foot
wider and six inches deeper
than the container-root mass.
Mix the soil from the hole with
an organic amendment, such
as peat, compost or muck.
Amendments should not ex-
ceed % of the soil volume.
Backfill the hole with enough
amended soil that the plant
will sit in the hole at the same
level itwas growing in the con-
tainer. Firm the soil to pre-
vent settling. Gently place the
plant straight in the hole and
fill in around the ball with
amended soil. Water
thoroughly while planting to
remove air pockets. Do not
mound the soil hear the stem
of the plant. Form a saucer-
like basin around each plant
four to six inches high and two
to three feet from the plant
base to facilitate watering.
Mulch with organic materials
to reduce soil, temperature
fluctuation and conserve
Planting balled and burlap-
ped plants is similar to plan-
.ting container- plants.- Care
should be taken not to disturb
the soil ball, as this would
severely damage the root
system. Removal of the
* burlap before planting is not
i necessary, but generally
i plastic coverings, should be
f removed after setting the
plant in the hole. Loosen the
burlap from the top of the soil
ball and cover with amended
soil. Remove any nylon twine
f tied around the plant stem.
Nylon twine does not rot and
will eventually girdle the
Generally, the procedures
for planting ball and burlap-
ped plants are suitable for
bare-root palms. Palms
should be planted during the
warm rainy months for op-
timum success. They should
be planted at least as deep as
they grew in the nursery and
watered frequently when
grown in well-drained soils.
Few bare-root plants are
planted in Florida. Bare-root
materials are available only
during the late fall, winter and
Follow the steps below when
planting bare-root plants:
Protect plants from drying.
Keep roots moist and plants in
shade prior to planting. Dig
the hole one foot wider than
the root spread and six inches
deeper than the root system.
Roots crowded into a small
hole will restrict plant growth.
Inspect the root system and
cut off roots that are broken or
damaged. Amend soil with
organic materials such as
peat compost or muck.
Amendments should not ex-
ceed "i of the soil volume.
Make a cone-shaped mound of
amended soil in the bottom of
the planting hole. Place the
plant on the mound and spread
the roots to their natural posi-
tion. Set the plant upright and
at the same depth it was
grown in the nursery.
Hold the plant upright and
fill the hole half to two-thirds
full of amended soil. Work the
soil around the roots to
eliminate air pockets. Settle
the soil around the roots with
water before filling the re-
mainder of the hole.T Form ,a.
saucer-like basin -around. tle
plant to aid in watering. Pro-
.vide a two to three inch mulch
in the saucer-like basin.
The success of planting
depends greatly on good
watering practices. Adjust the
watering schedule to provide
moist but not saturated condi-
tions until establishment.
Water the plants "as needed"
thereafter. One to two inches
of water per week from rain or
irrigation is usually sufficient.
Sandy soil may require two in-
ches of water each week while
heavier. soils may need less
than one inch each week.
Established plants in the
landscape require deep water-
ing to wet the soil down to the
root ball. Frequent light
watering of established plants
is undesirable. Light watering
*encourages the development
of a shallow root system.
Water only as fast as the soil
can absorb the water..

known as an elver.
