Deep Water Port Financing assured



Security Pacific National Bank Backs $36 Million In Bonds
A deep water port facility for Port St. Joe is how certain, they needed to make the project go yesterday morning - the LETTER OF CREDIT WORK ON INTEREST


With the nation and Port St. Joe wallowing in a sea of
despair over the financial situation all over the nation as the
new year begins, Port St. Joe and Gulf County had its
financial problems softened by the news that this project
would finally get underway in a.serious manner:
After more than 25 years of seeing the need for a deep
water port facility for Port St. Joe and three years of
concentrated effort to get such a project off the ground, the
Port St. Joe Port Authority finally secured the one ingredient


money - $36 million worth.of it.
After three attempts at financing the project through
huge banking companies, Security Pacific National Bank,
with ,branch offices in Atlanta, Georgia, approved the
backing for a bond issue to construct the port just this week,
The approval came on the heels of a dismal meeting of the
Port Authority on Friday of last week when Port Authority
Chairnian George Tapper seemed to despair of getting
financing, even from this fourth attempt to do so.

- . , , . - .'. - ". . . . . , . -


Security Pacific has sent the Port Authority a letter of
credit "not to exceed $36,500,000", which arrived in Port St.
Joe Wednesday morning. The letter of credit will serve as
collateral for a three year bond issue, for temporary
financing of the project. After the three year period, the issue
will be turned over into a long-term issue.
Tapper, who has been in contact with Security Pacific
the first two days of this week, ironing out details said a bond
sale will be held around February 15 to 20 to convert the letter
of credit into cash.


The Port Authority has planned all along to deposit the
proceeds-from the bond sale in the bank to earn interest. The
difference between the interest earned and the interest owed
on the tax-free bonds will be used to do all engineering,
purchase the property needed, get permits and do all work
necessary up to the actual construction work.
St. Joe Paper Company had agreed during the waning
days of 1981 to lend the Port Authority money to get the
engineering work started on the giant project, and the Port
Authority was taking steps to begin such engineering as ethe
feasibility study, permits, preliminary planning, etc. The '
approval this week of the short term bond issue will allow the
Authority to proceed, full speed ahead, with all parts of the
work to establish the port. .:
There are certain fees involved in the issuance pf the
bonds, which must be borne by the Port Authority. Tapper
said that after the sale of the bonds in February, it will be
approximately seven months before the bond revenues have,
earned enough money at interest to repay the closing costs .
for the financialprogram. After that time, the Port Authority.
will have approximately $1.3 million a year in earned interest
to finance planning operations for the port construction.
"WE'REON OUR WAY'"
On reading the letter Wednesday at noon before Port
Authority members and civic and business leaders in the
area, Tapper remarked, "Things were looking mighty black
lastFriday, but everything is roses now. We're on our way!"

A number of sportsmen called on the
County Commission Tuesday to oppose any
further granting of oyster leases in Indian
Lagoon. The men, with Bobby Burkett as
spokesman, asked the Conimission.to adopt a
resolution to the Department of Natural
Resources, asking that no further leases be
granted.
At present, Indian Pass Oyster Company
is the only one holding a lease in the Lagoon,
which has been in effect for many years. The
delegation asked that no action be taken
against this lease.
"McNeill's lease doesn't bother us",
Burkett said. "Mr.McNeill handles his lease
in the proper manner and it doesn't hurt us a
bit. What has us worried is that we
understand there have been 24 applications
made for leases in the Lagoon by people who
own property in the area. If these leases are
granted. there will be no more going to the
Lagoon to pick up a bucket or bag of oysters

Panhandle started dropping dramatically. By early morning
Monday, temperatures as low as 12 degrees were reported

freezing, with more of the same Monday night. Tuesday saw
a slight warming trend, but rain started falling Tuesday.

Burkett said it was his information the
private property- owners were primarily
worried about trespassers and were taking
this means of getting at the problem.
"There are other ways to do. that",
Burkett said.
Commissioner James Tankersley made a
motion that the County prepare and adopt the
resolution, sending copies to the DNR and to
the Gulf County's Legislative delegation.
Tankersley explained that Representative
Leonard Hall was preparing local legislation-
to address this problem and the county's'
resolution would help him in getting the local
bill passed in the State Legislature.
Attorney William J. Rish said he felt that
based on past experience, the DNR would not
grant the new leases anyhow.
The Commission unanimously agreed to
adopt the resolution which will also call for
public hearings in Gulf County before any
new leases in the Lagoon are even considered.

the city. For the past several years,
the City Commission gets, an occa-
sional request for permission to
locate a mobile home within the city.
Principally, these requests have
come from the north Port St. Joe
area, where housing is more acute
than in any other section of the city.
The requests have had to be turned
down since there were no provisions
made in the housing and zoning
ordinances passed some 20 years
ago, for the manufactured-type
housing.
Not only has the economic
situation made the manufactured
type home the only home many
young couples can afford these days.
Manufacturers of mobile and
modular homes have also upgraded
their appearances, size, and mate-
ials over the last 20 years, also.
Many of the modular homes look as
nice in appearance as many custom
built homes. They are now attrac-
tive and offer an economical means
of having a home without the.
appearance of a cheap tin box as the
early mobile homes were.
We see the need for the changes.
We hope they will not be like some
change; hard to accept and long in
coming. If we keep our young people.

Don't you believe. it. January is

enough to 'keep most everybody busy.
Did you enjoy Stephen Foster day?

as not to let these events slip by you

The folks over in White Springs,
where the Stephen Foster Memorial is,

the state who even knew that yesterday

Old Steve was very important to
our .state, too. He wrote the famous
Song, "Way Down On -the Suwannee
River," which flows through Florida
and heads out to sea down near Cross �
City.
Monday is Ben Franklin's birthday
and begins a gaggle of special weeks
commemorating at least three different
activities and possibly others we don't


know about.

Almanac", served his country and gave

man of sorts, along with his brilliance
which made him a legend before his
time.
It was Ben who stood out in a rain
storm, holding a kite string to prove
there was electricity ti lightning, which
made people think he had been
sampling something else before its
time. They didn't know much about it in
those days. Not even Ben suspected
that electricity would change the


caliber of our lives as much as it has.
On top of everything else, Benja-
min was a printer. Whether that is to
his credit or not, only you can judge, but
the fact remains that he was a printer.


The month of January also contains
National Printing Week, in difference
to Benjamin Franklin, no doubt.
Everyone in Port St. Joe ought to
celebrate National Printing Week by
ordering up a mess of printing from The
Star. We can do it for you.
There is also National Kiwanis
Week and National Jaycee Week, all
next week, beginning with Monday.
Don't you forget it. '

THE DEATH OF "Red" Herring
two weeks ago brought back a pleasant
memory to me. It wasn't pleasant that
"Red" died, but the occasion passed











with the pleasant memory returning
just as plain as it was on the day it
happened.
Knowing "Red", he would be
pleased that his dying caused a
pleasant memory.
When we first moved to Port St. Joe
back in 1940, we moved into the house
where A. V. Bateman lives now, and
lived there for three or four years.
"Red" was fresh from Alabama at


the time and a bachelor. He lived in an
apartment behind the M. K. Hurlbut
home on Eighth Street. He was a
salesman for Danley Furniture Com-
pany, with John Blount as manager.
About the time we got settled,
"Red" came by the house one day in the
Danley pick-up truck and asked Will
and I if we wanted to go fishing. Here
were two boys, 12 and 13 years of age,
whose fishing experience had been
limited to crawdad fishing a time or two
in a half-dried up muddy pond. We
hadn't been fishing more than two or
three times in our lives.
We both jumped at the chance and
badgered Momma into letting us go.
"Red" took us down to Indian Pass
in the truck and there we went fishing in
Sthe Gulf of Mexico for the first time in
our lives.
"Red" didn't have to take us
fishing, but he did and made two young
boys very excited and happy.
He was like that, though: "Red'
was sort of a free spirit and Pied Piper
rolled into one back before the term
free spirit was ever invented.

FIDEL HAS DONE it again. By


popular demand, or so the article said,
Fidel Castro has been re-elected as
president of Cuba and his little brother,
Raul, has been re-elected, vice-presi-
dent.
It's my understanding that with the
new term in office, Fidel gets a new set
of fatigues, a fresh cigar to chew on for
the next term of office and a beard
trim.
Just some of the fringe benefits of
being head of state in that island nation
100 miles south of Florida.
At that, Fidel's fringes probably
beat a jar of jelly beans.
+++
HERE OUR WINTER has hardly
gotten underway in the Panhandle and
already I have seen signs of spring.
We don't expect spring to really be
a factor in our lives here in Gulf County
until about the first third of the month
of March.
I am aware of the old adage that
one robin doesn't make a spring. It
takes a flock.
A sure sign of spring was sticking in
my mailbox Saturday morning. There,
lying on top of the heap was a seed
catalog. Can spring be far away?

Fill Out

The Front

Williams said this week that
many people are filling out the
back side of their homestead
exemption registration cards
sent out last week.
"It isn't necessary to fill out
the back of the cards",
Williams said. The Apprais-
er's office already has the
information called for on the
back of the card. It is only
necessary to fill in the front and
return the card to the Apprai-
ser's office to have your
homestead exemption status

This information is required
from the 10 percent sampling

was not reported to have been
seriously injured.
According to investigating
officer, James McGee, the
child ran out in front of a car
driven by Michael J. Leslie.
Leslie, who also lives on
Robbins Avenue, just a few
feet from where the accident
occurred, had just turned onto
Robbins off Avenue A on his
way home, when the child
darted out from behind a car
parked on the east side of the
street into the path of Leslie's
car.
The child, Cornelius Jones,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Gene
Jones, was struck by the right
front fender of Leslie's car
and knocked about 20 feet
from the point of impact. He
was taken to Gulf Pines
Hospital by the Port St. Joe
Squad of Gulf County Volun-
teer Ambulance Service and
treated for cuts about the face
and upper body. He was later
transferred to a Panama City
hospital for observation.
Officer McGee said Ola
Clemmons, who .was also
standing beside the street,
said she tried to grab the child
as he darted into the street in
the path of the car, but
couldn't catch him. Mrs.
Clemmons held a second child
which was also at the side of
the street.
No charges were filed in the
accident.

WHEN YOU RETIRE.


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
you retire.
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 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
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.
Come in and find out how much you'll have at
retirement with our IRA. But hurry and start
earning 15%!

One hundred and ten years
ago, in Nebraska, Arbor Day
had its beginning. On January
4, 1872, J. Sterling Morton, a
member of the State Board of
Agriculture, and later Go-
vernor, introduced and se-
cured the adoption of the
following resolution: "That
Wednesday, the tenth day of
April 1872, be especially set
apart and consecrated to tree
planting in the state of Ne-
braska and the State Board of
Agriculture hereby name it
"Arbor Day".
Statewide publicity was
given the occasion, and more
than a million trees were
planted on the first Arbor Day.
There after, the Arbor Day
tradition spread until approxi-
mately two-thirds of the states
have passed laws or resolu-
tions providing for the observ-
ance of Arbor Day. The
citizens of Florida had their
first Arbor Day celebration in
1886. In 1945, the. Florida
Legislature adopted the third
Friday in January as Flori-


M.B. Chamber
The Mexico Beach Chamber
of Commerce will meet on
January 18, beginning with a
covered dish dinner at 6:30,
and the business meeting
following at 7:30, CST.


"Warm-up With Sea Trout Chowder"
Cold winter weather dictates hot robust meals. Soups,
chowders and stews have long been a routine part of cold
weather dining because of their nutritious and filling
qualities.
The Florida Department of Natural Resources offers as a
suggestion Sea Trout Chowder. A meal in itself, the chowder
is served with crusty fresh-baked bread for a real "down-
home" flavor that is unmistakable.
Sea trout is, caught all along the Gulf and Atlantic coast
from October through February with December and January
being the peak months. Its firm-textured white flesh makes
for excellent eating. It is high in nutritive value yet extreme-
ly low in calories.
Sea trout adapts easily to broiling, baking, sauteing, pan
frying, and is especially suitable for soups and chowders. Sea
Trout Chowder is prepared with bacon, garlic, tomatoes,
tomato sauce, herbs, hot pepper sauce, soy sauce, and even
Vermouth if desired. The rich and flavorful chowder will just
"hit the spot" on a cold wintry night.
SEA TROUT CHOWDER

2 tablespoons bacon drip- 4 teaspoon thyme

da's official Arbor Day. On
January 15, why don't you join
in the 96th Arbor Day celebra-
tion by planting a tree.
Trees, not buildings, are the
best measure of civilized
landscape. A sense of time,
history and continuity are
demonstrated in a community
in which trees survive and
more are regularly planted.
Those'sections of our com-
munities where old trees do
survive- the better resi-
dential districts, parks, and
campuses- are the pride of
our towns and cities. These
are areas we quickly point out
to visitors and tourists. Cities
that are rich in trees have a
character all their own of
which the citizens may be
justly proud.
Most structures can become
visually acceptable in the
landscape with the proper use
of trees to frame and balance
them. It is rare to find a
structure that is self-sufficient
without the proper use of
natural vegetation. An en-
vironment that is good for
trees may also be said to be
good for people.
In addition to these esthetic'
reasons for having trees there
are also some very practical
ones. Trees may be referred to
as nature's air conditioners.
They moderate the climate by
protecting areas from ex-
tremes of wind, heat, cold,
glare and drought.
Trees also purify the air.
While humans and animals


consume oxygen and emit
carbon dioxide, growing trees
convert carbon dioxide into
food and give off oxygen.
Trees also cool and humidfy
the air through transpiration,
the process of releasing moist-
ure through leaves and need-
les into surrounding air. On a
hot day a young tree can
transpir several tons of water.
That evaporation can produce'
the same cooling effect as 10
air conditioners running 20
hours, causing the air to be as
much as 20 degrees cooler
under the trees.
Trees purify water, protect
erosion and conserve soil.
Three-fourths of the nation'sb
water comes from the forested
third of the country. Trees,

cushioning the impact of rain-

Trees reduce highway noise.
Solid belts of trees, with shrub
row plantings, may reduce
noise up to 50 percent along
highways and in residential
areas.
Real estate people tell us
that one of the best reasons to
plant good trees is to increase
the value and sales appeal of
our homes.
The landscape architect is
the professional whose job it is
to best select, and place trees
in our environment. Trees
should be a part of an overall
landscape plan. Whether a
professional landscape archi-
tect, nurseryman, or home-
owner places the tree, it is
best to plan the overall
development, first, so as to
avoid costly moving and other
mistakes. We should remem-
ber that trees are a living
investment that increase in
value continually if properly
placed and cared for. Why
don't you add to the beauty of
your community by planting a
tree this year.

All Gulf Schools AccreditedRecvesi M


The Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools, through its Commission on
Elementary Schools, has notified
School Superintendent B. Walter Wilder
that continuing accreditation has been
awarded to all Gulf County Schools.
Through accreditation, school staff
and faculty members will benefit by
knowing that conditions for teaching in
accredited schools meet certain mini-
mum standards and that efforts are


continuously made to improve these
conditions. Regional standards require
adequate faculties and facilities and
their effective use.
Citizens are assured of accountability
and of value for their tax dollars
through the process of standard setting
and the regular reevaluation of SACS
member institutions. Communities
with accredited schools can be confi-
dent that their institutions compare
favorably with others in the region.


Accredited schools are a "Plus" for
those who are interested in relocating
their families and businesses.
Founded in 1895, the Southern Asso-
ciation of Colleges and Schools is one of
six regional accrediting bodies in the
United States. More than 11,000 mem-
ber public and private universities,
colleges, junior colleges, occupational
institutions, secondary schools, middle
schools, and elementary schools enroll
approximately five million students.

: Sheriff, County
A


to Ans



On Jal

Sheriff Ken Murphy told the
:County Commission Tuesday
-that he had complied with
:many of the items cited by the
state Department of Correc-
,tions on a recent inspection of
ithe Gulf County jail but there
'were several matters on the
.list which would take more
.money for funding and he
wanted to know how the
Commission wanted him to
answer the criticisms.
Murphy remarked, "I think
:the jail is adequate for our
needs and treats prisoners in a
humane fashion." The Sheriff
said the only things he feels
;the county should not try to
;correct are those matters
,which would require more
:personnel when the county
'really dosn't iied'"the ser-
;vices the employees would
:cover.
SOne of the criticisms was
ithe lack of juvenile facilities.
"When they asked about our
'juvenile facilities, I answered
'none' because we send all our
:juveniles to Bay County and


FICA Base

Increasing

In 1982
The annual earnings base-
the maximum amount of
annual earnings that counts
for Social Security- will
increase to $32,400 for 1982, up
from $29,700, the 1981 base,
David Robinson, Social Se-
curity field representative for
Gulf County, said recently.
The increase is based on the
change in average earnings
levels from 1980 to 1981.
Also scheduled to increase
in 1982 is the Social Security
tax rate, Mr. Robinson said.
The 1982 tax rate will be 6.7
percent, an increase of 0.05
percent over the 1981 rate of
6.65 percent. The increase will
amount to just 50 cents a
month for a person earning
$1,000 a month.
Other Social Security fi-
gures are scheduled to in-
crease in 1982 as well. The
annual exempt earnings test is
the measure used to deter-
mine whether a person will
receive benefits during a year.
A person whose earnings do
not exceed the annual exempt
amount will receive all bene-
fits due for the year. A
person's benefits are reduced
$1 for each $2 of earnings
above the exempt amount.
In 1982, the annual exempt
Amount for people 65-72 will be
$6,000. For people under 65 all
of 1982, the exempt amount
Swill be $4,440.
There is also some im-
:portant news concerning the
Sage at which the earnings test
no longer applies, Mr. Robin-
son said. Under the law in
,effect before 1981 the age at
:which the earnings test no
-longer applies was scheduled
'to drop from 72 to 70 in 1982. A
:1981 law delayed the change-
:to 1983.
More information about So-
I cial Security taxes and bene-
:fits can be obtained at the
:Panama City Social Security
-office, located at 30 West
:Government Street. The tele-
phone number is 769-4871.


don't keep them here, so we
don't need the facilities. We
were written up as not having
the juvenile provisions in the
jail."
Murphy said the jail was
also written up for not having
air conditioning in the jail and
pointed out the jail has never
been air conditioned.
"If we were to air condition,
we would have to build a new
jail because this building
wasn't built to air condition.
We have exhaust fans in the
cell blocks which do a good
job, but when it's hot, the
prisoners are going to get
hot."
Murphy said he was also
attempting to make arrange-
ments with the Health Depart-'
ment to furnish its doctor
periodically to give physical
examinations to prisoners
kept for more than 72 hours.
"It's seldom that we keep a
prisoner for 72 hours or more,
yet we are expected to keep a
doctor on the staff; full time,
to give the exams", he said;
Murphy went on to say the
biggest defect was in the
plumbing, but even that was
no big deal. "Our fixtures are
made of some type metal and
covered with paint. The paint
is coming off and the. only
alternative is to take them out
and send them to a paint shop
for re-painting or replace the
fixtures." He pointed out that
the present fixtures were in
good condition and cost about
$700 each when they were put
in the jail some 13 years ago.
"The fixtures are working and
they're sanitary although they


don't look so good because of
the missing paint."
One major item which the
Commission and the Sheriff
felt the jail needed was an
alternate exit to the cell
blocks. Presently there is only
one door through the office
into the cell blocks. Murphy
said that in case of fire, there
could be a real danger there.
"I don't think they could
gather up all the flammable
items in the entire cell block
and get a fire going, but you
never know what could hap-
pen." Sheriff Murphy agreed
the jail needs another exit to
the cell blocks from the
outside.
The Commission agreed
with Murphy and asked him to
come Op tvith a' recommenda-
tion for providing the exit.
For the report as a whole,
the Commission pointed out
that the jail plans were
approved by the Department
of Corrections when the jail
was built about 13 years ago.
They felt the facility should
still be adequate and instruct-
ed Murphy and attorney Wil-
liam J. Rish to draft a reply to
the criticisms and present'it to
the Board for approval.
Murphy said, "They expect
us to come up to state prison
standards and there is no need
for it here with the type
service we operate. "A small
county like Gulf just couldn't
afford such an operation,"
Murphy said. He pointed out
that many other small coun-
ties in the state had received
the same criticisms as Gulf
had.

I .lIDl1M INRMATlaM Full Court Press Fails to Work for Sharks


Port St. Joe's Sharks put up
a full court press in'the second
half last Thursday night to try
to salvage a win from the
bigger Mosley Dolphins, but
the Dolphins went on to win,
66-54.
: The dolphins put the Sharks
at a disadvantage in the first
half, putting a 35-21 lead on the


scoreboard at the end of the
first half. The Sharks worked.
their full court press to their
advantage in the second half,
out-scoring the Dolphins, 33-
31, but the Dolphins' lead was
just too large.
The Sharks had used the full
court press to defeat Chipley
last year in the second half of


the play-off games and earn a
trip to the,state tournament.
The press worked that time.
Calvin Freeman paced the
Sharks with his 16 points.
Jerry Filmore had 12 points
and scrappy Chris Adkison hit
for 10 points. Marty Russ
bucketed 13 for the Sharks.
Terrance Brunson led the


Dolphins with 16 points.

be taxed to the utmost, just as
it was many times during 1981,
unless all citizens do their part
by being careful with outside
fires," he said.
The fire total for 1981 was.
nearly twice the normal
number of fires per year,
while the acreage that burned
was nearly three' times nor-
mal.
"I feel that Florida escaped'
.a major disaster by the skin of.
its teeth, thanks to skilled and
effective work by local fire
departments, the Forestry
Division's ranger crews and
the able help of firefighters
provided by landowners,"
said John Bethea, director of
the. ,Department ,of
Agriculture and Consumer
Service's Division of Forestry.
- "But we have no reason to
assume that we,can continue
to stave off disaster indefinite-
ly," he continued. "We must
quickly strengthen, our rural
firefighting resources by pro-


hiding better equipment to
local fire departments, as well
as Forestry units. We will call
this need to the attention of the
1982 Legislature." <
Bethea said that for several
reasons, the potential of
disastrous rural fires is in-
creasing rather than decreas-
ing. .
"We're a year drier in 1982
than we were in 1981," he said.
"Swamps have dried up, ex-
pbsing the.mucky bottoms to
fires that dig underground and
smoulder for weeks at a time.
Muck fires, were among the
most expensive to fight and
objectionable to citizens that
we had in 1981.
"Another reason rural fires
are growing more threatening
is the fact that so many
residents have chosen
uncleared rural sites for their
homes, often beyond the effec-
tive protection of urban-type
-fire departments. Around
nearly every city in Florida


are rural sections dotted with
Tobile homes and other dwell-
ings susceptible to wildfire.
We and the local fire depart-
ments must be beefed up to
protect them, or else Florida
will one day. experience a
California-type wildfire,"
Bethea said.
Although rio major subdivi-
sions were wiped out in
Florida during 1981, there
were dozens of occasions that
fire's raced out of. adjoining
woods to threaten residential
areas. Volunteer and rural
fire departments usually,,
assigned themselves.the job of
protecting buildings while
Division of Forestry rangers,
with tractors equipped with'
plows, attacked the fires in the
woods.
Some of the fire situations
reported in recent weeks in-
clude the closing of 20 miles of
Interstate 95 in Indian River
and Brevard Counties due to
heavy smoke from a.2,000 acre
muck fire; threats to about a
dozen homes at Sarasota by a
woods ;fire that was beaten-
back from each home by
owners with garden hoses
.joining, professional
firefighters; and a subdivision
in northern Palm Beach Coun-
ty was threatened by a 30-acre
wildfire blown by gusty winds.
before a Forestry tractor unit
and four volunteer fire depart-
ments teamed up, to save all
*the homes.
During 1981, Bethea said,
there were app rOimately 70
fired'of 1,000 acres or more. No
part of the state was immune,
but Northeast Florida was hit
particularly hard with many
large fires burning the woods
south' of Jackson-ville in


March, and the year's most
damaging fire of all- the
Crane Swamp fire that
destroyed 35,000 acres of
valuable timber near Daytona
Beach in July.
i-The Division of Forestry
brought some 200 rangers and
equipment- from throughout
the state during a 60-day cam-
paign that eventually controll-
ed the fire. However, the cost
was heavy to Volusia County
and was a major cause of a
deficit in the firefighting funds
allocated to theDivision of.

Planning to Retire In '82? Make Plans Now


People planning to retire in
early 1982 should start making
serious plans right now if they,
have not yet done so. A part of
this planning should be apply-
ing for Social Security retire-
ment benefits, David. Robin-
son. Social Security field
representative for Gulf
County, said recently.

Applying for benefits at the
proper time is very important,


Mr. Robinson said. This is
because benefit payments are
geared to the month of appli-
cation.

For example, a person
applying after reaching 65
generally can receive benefits
for up to six months before the
month of application, but not
before the month he or she
reaches 65. A person applying
between 62 and 65 cannot


generally get any benefits for
months before the month of
application.
Before applying, a person
should gather together the
required evidence. This in-
cludes his or her Social
Security card or a record of
the number. birth or bap-
tismal certificate, and Forms
W-2 or self-employment tax
returns for the past two years.

Having trouble track-
ing down strange, nasty
odors in your kitchen?
They could be coming
from your garbage dis-
posal. To deodorize your
disposal, feed it regularly
with citrus peels. Grape-
fruit, oranges or lemons
will all leave a fresh
clean scent. Grinding up
these tough peels will
help clean the blades, too.


S Instead of using ex-
Spensive paper towels,
Swhy not keep a cloth
Stowel handy in .the
kitchen just for drying
hands and kitchen coun-
- ters. You can also grab
it to blot up the oc-
casional spot or spill.
Getting that greasy towel
clean again is no problem
when you use Lestoil as
a pre-spot treatment. Just
rub a little Lestoil into
any greasy stains, then
Slander as usual.
