A resolution by the Gulf
County Commission two
weeks ago to oppose any
further oyster bar. leasing in
Gulf County has opened a can
of worms.
Tuesday night, a group of
residents in the Indian Lagoon
area approached the Board
about their decision and a
second group of sportsmen
were present to state their
case for denial of any oyster
bed leasing.
The County had asked their,
attorney, William J. Rish ro
prepare a resolution opposing
the leasing and had forwarded,
a letter to Elton Gissendaner,
director of the Department of
Natural Resources calling for
a public hearing in Gulf
County before any leases were
granted in the county.

Harold Quackenbush,-
speaking on behalf of 24
property owners in. the Indian'
Lagoon area, who are seeking
the leases, said leases would
increase production of oysters
in the body of water.
Quackenbush told the Com-
mission granting of the leases
by the Department of Natural
Resources would increase pro-
duction of oysters because a
permit could not be granted,
under law, where oysters are
now being produced. "The
area to be leased is not now
oyster producing", Quacken-
bush said. He said the area
under consideration has no
production at -all and the
people who are requesting the
leases would like to start an
"oyster garden" in the waters
adjoining their property for
their own private use.
Quackenbush said the lease
requests were each for less
than a half acre the width of
the property involved arid up
to 100 feet extended into the
water.
Quackenbush pointed out
that the only productive bar
currently under lease in the
Lagoon is a long-time lease by
Indian Pass Oyster Company,
which has had their lease for
many years. He pointed out
that this lease was for only 50
acres and estimated there
were some 1,060 acres in the
lagoon.
Quackenbush said, "We


Hears Options On Transportation Program


County Forced to Spend $8,000for Report On Project Which Has No Funding


The County Commission
feels it is being forced to
indulge in an exercise in
futility in coming up with a
written plan for providing
transportation for the elderly
and handicapped people in the
county.
The Commission is already
involved in providing this
service through the program
to aid the elderly and a second
operation which serves the
needs of retarded citizens in
the county, both of which
'operate transportation ve-
hicles in their services.
About six months ago, the
county was furnished a grant
of $8,000 and told to spend it in
getting up a five year report
showing how the transporta-
tion needs' of the elderly and
handicapped would be met.
The county proposed to
meet the needs with the
vehicles currently operated in
the two services; but -this
wasn't enough. The DOT then
'informed the county they must
come up with a formal report,
drawn up by competent ser-


vices to meet the require-
ments of DOT.
So, the county contracted
with Barrett, Carlan and.
Daffin, of Tallahassee, who


was doing. engineering work
for the county at the time, to
come up with the report..
Tuesday night, a prelimin-
ary, report was given on: the

Williams Pays A


With Funds from Her Perso al Bank Account


Property Appraiser Joyce
Williams made a personal
appearance before the Board
of County Commissioners
Tuesday night to inform the
Board that she had paid her
attorney's fees in a recent
Writ of Mandamus filed
against the Commission out of
her personal funds.
In a prepared statement to
the Board, Williams said, "I
would like for the Board to
know that I have paid my
attorney out of my pocket so
that the taxpayers would not
have that burden. The only
cost is what the Board of
County Commissioners has to
pay Attorney Billy Joe Rish
for. his services."
Williams went on to say, "..
in the event that there is any
more refusal by the Board to


pay what has been approved
for my office or if the Board
contests Judge Bodiford's rul-
ing then the Board will have
caused the people of Gulf
County to be subjected to the
additional expense of attor-
ney's fees for your counsel as
well as mine." Williams said
any further litigation would
not result in attorneys being
paid out of her personal funds.

BIRMINGHAM QUESTIONS
Later in the meeting, Com-
missioner Doug Birmingham
queried attorney Rish, asking,'
"I don't understand Mrs.
Williams' actions. Mr. Rish,
isn't it a usual practice for the
loser in such court action to
have to bear the attorney costs
for both parties? Shouldn't we
have had to pay those court


and attorn 'Ys fees for both
parties?"
Rish said "Normally, this is
true, but in iis case, the judge
denied atto ley's fees for the
plaintiff (M Williams) even
though she hid asked for them
in her action filed against the
county."
In Judge Bodiford's verdict
on the case January 14, no fees
were mentioned- in his final
decision. '
Rish we t on to say the
order still hasn't come down to
pay the con ested $4,000 to the
office of th, Appraiser. "The
attorney fof the plaintiff and
the attorhe4 for the county
must readtie order and sign it
as the decision they under-
stood as rendered before any
order is givin to pay", Rish
said. He went on to point out,


"As soon as both sides agree
they understand the verdict
completely, the order will be
seht down from the court to
transmit the funds."
Birmingham also asked if
the verdict was just for the
$4,000 listed in the Writ, or did
it include a decision on the
entire budget of the Property
Appraiser.
Rish replied that the ruling
of the Judge was based on the
$95,000 budget approved by
the Department of Revenue,
but was for only $4,000 in the
first quarterly draw. Rish
went on to say, "I think, with
the verdict, that it would be
foolish on our part to think a
different ruling might be
expected on the other three
quarters of payment, how-
ever."

Mayor Pate Proclaims


Black History Month


Port St. Joe Mayor Frank
Pate official declared the
month of February Black
History Month here in Port St.
Joe.
Pate signed a proclamation
setting forth the special ob-
servance in the presence of
Clarence Monette, president
of the Association for Com-
munity Action, which is spon-
soring the observance in Port
St. Joe.
During the month of Febru-
ary of each year, colleges and


universities, elementary and
secondary schools, churches,
civic and social organizations
throughout the country spon-
sor activities which highlight
the achievements and con-
tributions made by Afro-
Americans. These celebra-
tions are variously called
Black History Month, Black
Expressions Month or, in
come cases where the original
title has been maintained,
Negro History Month.
Activities are generally,


though not exclusively, social
and cultural in nature and
specific events range from
lectures by historians, educa-
tors and creative artists, and
essay and poetry writing
contests.
The primary purpose of
these activities is to instill
within Afro-Americans a
sense of pride and accomplis-
ment and to inform the
general public of Black Amer-
ica's significant past.


agree, we don't want the
lagoon leased. We do feel the -
property owners should libe
able to plant their own little
"oyster garden" and. have
them for their own use. They
should be able to do 'this
without the danger of having
someone come in and hul,
them off. We want to assist in'
growing oysters."
Frank Griffin, the main'
speaker for those opposingtlhe
leases said, "There are very
nice oysters in the lagoon. .
have harvested them for our
own use for years all-my
life. Many of these lots have
oysters in the water beliii,
their property. I'm sorry there:
are people who abuse them;
but this group does not abuse
them and we want to continue
to be able to pick up- a
bucketful for our own. Use '
when we want to." -: 1 ; '
Mrs. Laurie Rivers said she .
had lived at the Lagoon for 55
years. "Of the 24 people .
involved, only five or six have
oysters and they are about
gone because of abuse." '
The property owners who;.4
spoke, Frances deBuhr, Mrs.'
Bourke Floyd, Pat Smith ain.
Quackenbush seemed thost
concerned about people who
come to the Lagoon and haul
the oysters off by the truck-
loads, never putting anything
back for future harvests. -
'Bobby Burkett, one of the
- opposition 'to, the bars- said-
"We're not trespassers or
lawbreakers."
'Ronnie Young pointed out
that the Lagoon oysters were ',
, the only producing areas in,
Gulf County.
The arguments from both
sides all ended with the same', -
conclusion. Neither wanted .
commercial oystering in- the
Lagoon, except on the present ,
leased bar. "Oyster growing
takes care and attention",
Quackenbush noted. "These -
people who are causing us,.
problems never put back any '
shells or anything else to
encourage future production .
and this practice is depleting .
the oysters in the Lagoon."
Both Commissioners Billy
Branch and Doug Binning-:
ham said they could see "right, ;
on both sides" and wanted to
take some action to protect the
rights of both sides involved in
the controversy. .
Faced with the dilemma of
what was best to do, Birming-
ham expressed a desire for the
Commission and both sides,
involved to meet with the .
Department of Natural R407
sources to ascertain, first
hand, just what protection
both sides had under the law
and what could be done to
protect the future of both sides
of the matter.
As.a result of the hour of
conversation on the matter,
everyone finally agreed on' a
suggestion by Birmingham
that a meeting be called with
DNR representatives to dis-
cuss the matter. before .any
leases are granted. The meet-
ing, to gain factual informa-
tion in the controversy, will be
set up with DNR representa-
tives within the next few days
or weeks, as soon as it can be ,
arranged.
In the meantime, the Coiun
ty's letter had already been
mailed to DNR requesting the
leases not be granted until
public hearing is held ir. Giulf
County.

But the vast majority of
wage earners in America
would be wise to discipline
themselves to invest the maxi-

At best, social security
barely provides a survival

One thing about an IRA is
that it is strictly a business
matter between the individual
and the financial institution.. It
is your account and you know
in advance the terms and
conditions under which your
benefits will come back to you.
If an individual is in the 20
percent income tax bracket,
an IRA deposit of $2000 made
at the beginning of the year
would reduce the income tax
$400. Then, at 14 percent
interest the IRA will earn $280
interest during the year. Thus,
the $2000 IRA will actually
cost you out of pocket ex-
penses only $1600.
With the accumulated in-
terest on the account, at the

A thirty $ear old wage
earner who ravests $2000 a
year in an IRA until age 65 will
have invested $70,000 plus
interest. Then at 65, interest
at 12 percent; on the $70,000
actual investment would pro-
vide a retirement income of
$700 per monti. Accumulated
interest woulc make it much

Let me con ess that if this
plan had been offered 20 or 30
years ago, I probably would
not have taken it because I

Measamer Explains IRA Program
to Rotary Club Members Thursday


Charles Measamer, a vice
president with Florida Na-
tional Bank, showed a slide
presentation to the Port St.
Joe Rotary Club on the new
IRA retirement accounts pre-
sently being made available to
those who want to start a
personal retirement program.
Measamer's presentation
included the slide program
and recorded narration, after
which Measamer answered


questions put to him by the
members present. Measamer
said that beginning next
month, the bank would offer
guaranteed interest rates on
the IRA accounts for a period
of 18 months, or the partici-
pant could elect to allow his
account to float with the
current money market inter-
est rate.

-State Could Raise Money by Selling Admission Tickets to Legislature


,,.: IF THE STATE of Florida actually
needs more money in the treasury, we
can think of easier and more popular
S.ways to get it than by raising the sales
tax a penny or any other tax by any
1tamount.
Several members of the Legisla-
ture have been tuning up to ask for an
-dditional penny on the sales tax at a
S..time when the Florida treasury is flush.
To make the pill easier to swallow, the
: Legislators are courting the support of
2 the Florida League of Cities by saying
Z Z half of the extra cent could go to the
cities for a property tax relief purpose.
Such a purpose is supposed to make the
: cities of the state line up four square
.: behind the extra tax and make it easier
, to sell to the people.
Several larger cities in the League
':: bit the bait, hook, line and sinker, but
the smaller and middle size cities are
either opposed or uncertain as to just
*2 how effective such a tax would be in
Scoring the woes of the cities or reducing
S other taxes.

can add more money to the state coffers

and everyone can have a good time in
the bargain. All the Legislature has to
do is charge admission to the sessions
in Tallahassee. If what I read so far of
the newly-convened session is true, the

comedy than the ones going on at the
theatres across the country.

Legislators I have already mentioned,

this slogan is the sub-head, "If it's an

one-liner than that. Why shouldn't
people pay admission to see comedy of
this calibre?
ON THE CENTER stage is Cover-


nor Bob Graham somberly telling us
that what we need are tougher laws on
crime. The Governor spent nearly a
half of his 24 minute state of the state
address at the opening of the session
telling us about how the state needs
tougher laws against criminals -
especially criminals who prey on the
elderly and infirm.
How is a law going to deter crime
against the elderly or anyone else? We

have so many laws against crime on the
books now we hardly know where to
turn. In fact there are so many, it is
almost impossible for even an honest
man to spend an active day without











breaking some law without even
knowing he is doing so.
That suggestion was a real thigh
slapper. Had the GoVernor played a
straight role and called for a toughen-
ing by the courts to the point where the
guilty are punished and the innocent
left in an innocent state after signing a
complaint against a criminal, he might
get applause instead of a guffaw at his
suggestion.

S There's no arguing the point;.
Senator Dempsey Barron is the star of
the show. We here in Gulf County may
neid a broadside off the marquee to
pid Senator Barron out of the pack of
Lislators and aides who fill the


Tides

High and low tides for St.
Joseph's Bay for the upcom-
ing week are shown in the tide
table, below, furnished by the
U. S. Weather Bureau in Apa-
lachicola. Times are based
on a 24-hour clock, and height


chambers on opening day. If we paid
our admission to see the show, we
would probably need a program.
While we see our United States
Congressman Earl Hutto two or three
times a year, I don't think Senator
Barron has been seen in Gulf County
since he decided to run for the Senate
two years ago. And the last time we saw
him before that was when he decided to
run for re-election four years prior.
Here our Senator is the star of the
show and we don't even see him enough
to recognize him.
The Senator must like us though,
since Gulf County is included right
smack in the niddle of his new district
in his new reapportionment plan.
ADMISSION TO THE SHOW would
bring in a. pretty penny. It isn't often
oneegets to see a Senator who has been
arrested for drunken driving, resisting
an officer and making a spectacle of
himself get applauded by a supposedly
august, body. In most cases, be" is
reprimanded for his sordid acts.
The session and its actors are
definitely different and should be a
attraction many would pay to see.

County Study


John Brock, of the engineer-
ing firm, said the county had
three alternatives: to inaug-
urate a public transportation
system at an estimated cost of
$300,000; beef up the present
system, providing more vehi-
cles or continue to operate
their present system with
minor alterations.
Brock said the report was
probably useless at this time
since such services are now,
discontinued on a large basis
because of budget cutbacks.'
Brock said he could see no
chance for funds in the near
future, but said things may
change before the five year
limits of the plan are up.
The two services, which aid
the elderly and the retarded
people in the county, presently
operate four vans. These
vehicles are used also for
transportation services to the
elderly and handicapped.
The vehicles are used for
such purposes as transporting
those needing .transportation
to medical appointments, gro-
cery shopping and other nec-
essary transportation needs.
WARD RIDGE '
Lewis Taylor, mayor pro-
tem of Ward Ridge asked the
Commission about the status
of a 4-way stop sign at the
intersection of Niles Road and
Garrison Avenue.
"That's a particularly dan-
gerous intersection and the
Garrison is a virtual race- .
way" Taylor said:
Taylor was informed the
Department of Transportation
had approved the sign but the
county wanted a public hear-
ing held in the matter. They
said some opposition had been
expressed.
Taylor agreed a hearing
was needed and the County
agreed to hear any input for or
against the traffic restraint at
their night meeting on Febru-
ary 23.
OTHER ACTION
In other action, the Commis-'
sion:


-Agreed to.investigate fur-
ther a problem brought by
Otis Taylor of Douglas Landp-
ing regarding a 15 foot strip he
thought he owned.
-Heard a report by attor-
ney Rish who said the courts
had ruled in the county's favor
in a suit against General
Motors for a defective ambu-
lance vehicle. The award was
$8,600 in cash and the county
gets to keep the vehicle.
-Instructed attorney Rish
to approach the company
carrying the county's boiler
insurance about the delay in
paying a claim the county has
for lightning striking the boil-
er at the courthouse.
-Passed a resolution of
appreciation to Dr. Tom Gib-
son for his contribution of
$50,000 for the Port St. Joe


service on Saturday night).
Pastor David Fernandez
invites the entire community
to come and join in this time of

library building over the past
few years. Dr. Gibson donated
$25,000 on the construction
costs and $5,000 a year for a
period of five years on the
operational costs.
-Were informed by attor-
ney Rish that the county had
been named as a defendant in
a Writ of Mandamus by Doris
Schott asking that they show
cause why they had not
required removal of any
structures from the public
right of way at St. Joe Beach.
-Agreed to adopt a resolu-
tion asking the State of
Florida to. make regional
planning, councils partially
responsible for administering
community development
block grant funds provided the,
funds are turned over the state
for administration.

formula with his own team,
which has become famous
nation-wide under his guid-
ance and that of his predeces-
sor as one of the winningest
high school football teams in
the nation. In his six years at
Valdosta, his team has lost
only six games.
Hyder told his audience,
"You have to be tough spirit-
ually, morally, physically and
mentally to really win at
football, basketball, baseball,
tennis, or life."
"America is a football crazy
country", Hyder said. "I
wanted to play the game early


in life and I learned not to
cuss, smoke, drink, or do
drugs through athletics. Be-
cause I wanted to win, I
learned early in life to associ-
ate losing with these things
and winning with avoiding
them."
The speaker said one of the
first lessons he learned was
"You have to pass your grades
to play. I also learned that our
job is to play SO AS to win the
game. The Bible says winning
or losing is not the important
thing but entering the contest
is irtiportant."
Hyder stressed clean living

CARD OF THANKS
The family of the late Mr.
Sammie Manning would like
to thank each of you, .for
whatever expressionss of
sympathy were shown to us
during the death of our
beloved one. May God ever
bless all of you.
The Manning Family
Marie, Marcus, Lynn and
Vickie


didn't make any junk. He gave
us each a specific talent, but
he charged us with the respon-
sibility of developing it and
honing it to a fine edge and
that takes work and dedica-
tion."
Hyder spent an hour telling
his rapt audience of illustra-
tion after illustration taken
from his own life and exper-
ience of how the ones who
really succeeded in a big way
did it only because they set a
goal and spent their every
effort working to meet the
goal. "I learned this work and
discipline because it was the
only way I could participate in.
sports. I had to work at it.
Sports taught me dedication in
my life."
Hyder, who coached Geor-
gia's Buck Balew in high
school football said the quar-
terback who led the Univer-
sity of Georgia to national
championship last year and to
the Sugar Bowl this year did it
through dedication and hard
work. "Buck wasn't a natural
athlete", Hader said. "He got
where he is today because he
worked harder than his op-
ponents and respected his
teammates".
AWARDS GIVEN
During the awards presen-
tation portion of the banquet,
several members of the
Sharks, squad were presented
special recognition for ac-
complishment and received

Quarterback Chris Adkison
was voted as the Most Valu-
able Player of the year.
Adkison played in every game
this past year and was in on

expected to be a team spark
plug and missed much of the
year with a broken collar bone
was presented with the best
tackier award.
Tim Stutzman, who had a
collar bone break in the next
to last game, was presented
with the best blocker award.
Kip Altstaetter received the

COACHES HONORED
The team usually gives the-
coaches a gift at the end of the
season, but this presentation
was especially emotional'
since head coach Wayne Tay--
lor is stepping down from his
position this year.
Kesley Colbert, who has-
served with Taylor for 13-
years as an assistant, spoke:
for all the assistant coaches-
over the 17 years of Taylor's-
tenure in lauding the head
mentor for his dedication, his
high moral standing and his
leadership of the program
over the years.
The team presented Taylor;
with a collage of pictures-
which covered his entire foot-
ball career from his own high-
school playing days, through'
his days with the Georgiai
Bulldogs and 17 years at Port
St. Joe High School. Chris-
Adkison, who made the pre-:
sentation, remarked, "This;
even goes back to the days:
when Coach Taylor had hair"'

EXTENSION NOTES:



Time to Prune Many


Shrubs and Trees
By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director


Late winter and early spring
is the time to prune many
shrubs and trees in the yard.
Shrubs that bloom in summer
and fall generally develop
flowers on current season's
growth and should be pruned


before the first flush of growth
in the spring. Shrubs that
bloom in the spring or winter
should be pruned immediately
after flowering has finished.
Pruning is practiced to main-
tain plant health, control plant


growth, and encourage flower-
ing and fruiting. These ob-
jectives should be remember-
ed as you prune.
Pruning should encourage
plant health, not plant disease.
Therefore, it is important to


MINUTES


of the


Gulf County Commission J


The Board of County Com-
missioners of Gulf County,
Florida, met December 8, 1981
in regular session with the
following members present:
Jimmy 0. Gortman, Chair-
man, Douglas C. Birming-
ham, James L. Tankersley,
and William R. Branch.
Others present were: William
J. Rish, Attorney, George Y.
Core, Deputy Clerk, Tommy
Pitts, Admin. Assistant and
Bill Lamar, Bailiff.
The meeting came to order
at 9:00 a.m. The meeting was
opened with prayer, followed
by the pledge to the flag.
Upon motion by Comm.
Branch, seconded by Comm.
Tankersley, and upon vote it
was unanimously carried, that
the minutes for the meetings
of October 27th, November
2nd, 10th, and 16th, 1981, were
adopted as published.
The following bids were
received to sell the County one
pressure-demand air breath-
ing apparatus, approved by
NIDSA and MESA: Panama
Fire Equipment and Supply
Company, $785.00; Fire Fight-
ers Equipment Company,
$810.97, $768.29, $755.48,
$712.80; Jacksonville Fire
Equipment Company, $642.00
and $607.00; Dowling Fire
Equipment, Inc., $794.00,
$751.00 and $652.00. There was
a motion by Comm. Branch,
seconded by Comm. Tankers-
ley and it was unanimously
carried, that the Board accept
the bid of Fire Fighters, Inc.
of Jacksonville at $755.48 and
that a 'purchase order be
issued.
The Board discussed the
proposal by Time Energy
Corporation to install energy
saving equipment at the court-
house. Ivey Bailey, represent-
ing this firm offered sug-
gestions and made certain
recommendations for the use
of his equipment. He said that
the equipment now in use
must be put into first class
condition prior to his equip-
ment being installed. The
Board having heretofore re-
quested the Apalachee Re-
gional Planning Council to
study the proposal offered by
Time Energy Corporation,
Doug Buck filed a written
report on this study. Mr.
Bailey informed the Board
that his equipment would save
the county 10 percent of its
"energy consumption, this
being a guarantee in the
contract, that the saving is
projected to be up to 29
percent saving. This matter
was tabled for further study.
Upon motion by Comm.
Branch, seconded by Comm.
.Tankersley and unanimously
carried, the Board approved
and executed a contract for
services between the county
and the Florida Panhandle
Health Systems Agency for
the fiscal year ending Septem-
ber 30, 1982.
Upon motion by Comm.
Birmingham, seconded by
Comm. Branch and unani-
mously carried, the Clerk was
directed to pay the City of
Wewahitchka, from the Tu-
pelo Fire Control District
Fund, the sum of $2,873.00,
representing one-half of the
down payment on a new fire
truck, the title to show joint
ownership in the City of
Wewahitchka and the Board of
County Commissioners, but
that the City of Wewahitchka
will provide all required in-.
surance on said new truck.
William Harris, President of
PortServices, Inc. appeared
before the Board with refer-
ence to his company locating a
barge terminal, dry dock and
marine facility in Gulf County
on the U.S. Intracoastal Canal
at White City. He said the
operation would employ about
:40 people when the first
operations commence and will
employ about 100 people when
:it is in full operation; that his
company is also considering
:other locations along the canal
:that are not in Gulf County,
however, the White City site is
preferred over the others.
g After answering the questions
from the Board, he requested
the Board consider giving his
company a moratorium on
States for a ten year period and
also consider issuing indus-
trial bonds on behalf of his
company. The Board discus-
sed this request and upon


motion by Comm. Birming-
ham, seconded by Comm.
Tankersley, and unanimously
carried, this request is tabled
until the first meeting in
January and that the Attorney
advertise for a public hearing
on this request.
Cora Sue Robinson, Super-
visor of Elections, informed
the Board that she has purged
the list of electors as required
by Section 98.081 F.S.; that
about 900 electors did not
return their notice, which
means those names must be
removed from the voting list.
She then reminded the Board
that it has heretofore suggest-
ed that this list be advertised
and asked if she -should
advertise these names. Upon
motion by Comm. Tankersley,,
seconded by Comm. Branch
and unanimously carried, the
Board requested the list be
advertised at the expense of
the Board.
The Chairman announced
that the meeting of December
22, 1981, is cancelled because
of the Christmas holiday seas-
on.
Tommy Pitts advised the
Commission as follows:
The St. Joseph Telephone
and Telegraph Company has
increased its contract price
for maintenance of all county
radio equipment. He said the
new price is less than the
County was paying before
-contracting with- the Tele-.
:rhone Company. There was a;
motion by Comm..Tankersley';
seconded by Comm. Birming-
ham and unanimously car-
ried, that the county renew its
contract with St. Joseph Tele-
phone and Telegraph Com-
pany.
The plat of Gulf Pines
Subdivision was presented for
final approval. Mr. Pitts ad-
vised the Board that this
revised plat was handed to
him after this meeting was
'called to order this morning;
that he has not had time to
examine it to determine if all
corrections have been made
as heretofore directed by the
Board, 1ut that he has been
assured by the Engineer that
all corrections are now incor-
porated into the plat. He
recommended its final ap-
proval, subject to his verifying
all requirements. Upon mo-
tion by Comm. Branch, sec-
onded by Comm. Tankersley,
and unanimously carried, said
plat was approved and order-
ed filed in the public records of
the county after the required
filing fee is paid, subject to the
administrative assistant's ap-
proval.'
Mr. Pitts reported on the
Indian Pass' Public Board
Landing. He said it will be
necessary for the ramp be
relocated Northward to a
point near the center of the
parking area. He advised the
Board that William A. Walker,
II, is one, of the owners of
adjoining property and he
objects to this new installation
because of the tidal flow at
this'location which may cause
serious boating accidents,
which in turn, will harm the
profitable use of his property.
His other objections were: No
county personnel to answer
emergency calls; the lack of
parking space which will
probably require trespassing
on his property; the lack of
policing of sanitation and that
the swift moving water at this
site will cause his property to
washl away and erode. Mr.
Pitts advised the Board that
all of the objections set out in
the letter are likely to become
a reality at, this site. The
Board said it would be respon-
'sible for the proper operation
and care of this site and
directed Mr. Pitts to proceed
with the processing of all
required permits for the new
ramp.
Presented an invoice for
payment to Barrett, Daffin,
and Carlan, County Engi-
neers, for services rendered
through 10-31-81 on the Gulf
County Transportation study,
BDC Project No. 1454-5 in the
amount of $1,600.00. There was
a motion by Comm. Birming-
ham, seconded by Comm.
Tankersley and unanimously
carried that said invoice be
paid.
Reported on the Corley
Slough Project. He said that
the Corps of Engineers con-
tinue to play their stalling


game by now requiring per-
mission from Southwest For-
est Industries for Gulf County
to assign its easement to the
United States of America, but
that this has now been done, so
it will be interesting to see
what the next hold up will be.
Reported on the Board's
efforts to acquire Government.
Lot 10 in Section 31, T6S,
R11W, being 40 acres on Dead
Man's Curve. He said this
property will soon be avail-
able for disposition by the U.S.
Department of Interior. The
Board requested Mr. Pitts to
file the proper application as
soon as it can be accepted by
the United States of America.
Mr. Pitts said that develop-
ment plans must accompany
the application.' The Board
directed that he contact the
Department for assistance in
preparing a plan for the use of
this property as a public park.
Discussed the proposed
Palm Point Boat Ramp. Mr.
Pitts said that landowners
giving the easement for the
site and access road are
requiring a survey. The Board
directed Mr. Pitts to obtain a
survey.
Mr. Pitts said that even
though he has advised each
member of the Commission
prior to this meeting, he now
announces his official resigna-
tion as Admin. Assistant and
Mosquito Control Supervisor,
effective January 7, 1982. He
said he regrets leaving the
County; that he has enjoyed
his work, which has always
been interesting and challeng-
ing; that he has always
enjoyed very good working
relations with his county com-,
missioners, other county offi-
cials and the personnel he
supervised. He said he is
accepting a position with
Material Transfer, Inc. as
construction Superintendent
and Manager of the local
operation. Each member ex-
pressed regrets that he is
leaving the Board, but pleased
that he has been chosen for
this new position. Comm.
Branch moved to advertise for
a replacement for the position
of Mosquito Control Supervi-
sor, seconded by Comm.
Birmingham, and unani-
mously carried.
Comm. Birmingham moved
to advertise to sell or trade the
Wewahitchka modular ambu-
lance in order that it may be
replaced with a van-type
ambulance, 'seconded by
Comm,.. Branch and unani-
mously carried.
Comm. Birmingham dis-
cussed the retirement of Lloyd
Whitfield, County Road Supt.
nmd other employees. He
suggested that a dutch treat
dinner be arranged to honor
these retirees with the Com-
missioners picking up the tab
for the retirees. The Board
agreed this should be done and.
the ,Chairman appointed
Comm. Birmingham to make
the necessary arrangements.
Comm. Birmingham re-
quested each member of the
Commission meet with him on
the Overstreet Highway to
inspect a problem area.
Comm. Birmingham re-
quested each member of the
Commission meet with hinm on
the Overstreet Highway to
inspect a problem area.
Comm. Branch asked the
status of securing a County
Health Officer and a Clerk for
the Wewahitchka Health Unit.
It was decided that all applica-
tions be evaluated by Dr.
Rather; that he select the
best applicant and present
said applicant to this Board
for its approval or rejection;
that only applicants from Gulf
County be considered for the(
Clerk's position.
Comm. Branch moved that
applications be received by
this Board for one courthouse
maintenance assistant, with a
beginning salary of $7,400.00,
seconded by Comm. Birming-
ham and unanimously car-
ried. The Board directed
Charlie Presley to review all
applications and make his
recommendation to the Board.
Comm. Tankersley told the
Board that there is a need for
a telephone in each voting
precinct in order that the
election officials can have
direct communication with
the supervisors office. The
Chairman requested him to

requested that the County
apply for any and all parcels
of land for sale located on the
Bay or Gulf. He stated that
unless Gulf County makes a
request to be included in the
program, there will be no
chance of receiving any consi-
deration under the program.
The Administrative Assistant
was directed to file a list of
available lands.
The Board received a copy
of the annual report of Joyce
D. Williams,. Property Ap-
praiser, for the year ending
September 30, 1981.

prune properly using the
current pruning tools. For
general cleanup hand pruning
shears are used, loopers may
be used for branches up to one
inch, a pruning saw can be
used for larger branches and
hedge shears should be used to
trim closely clipped hedges
only. All tools should be kept
sharp. Sharp tools not only cut
easier but will not bruise the
plant tissue. Bruising the
plant causes slower healing of
the wound and causes an
increase in the probability of
disease.
A clean cut should be made.
This means the cut surface
should have a smooth surface,
not a rough one that looks as if
the tissue has been torn or
pulled. Care should be taken
not to injure the plant around
the cut, or rip or tear the bark
above or below the cut. The
cambium layer, a thin layer of
cells just below the bark which
is important in wound healing,'
is easily injured. Do not twist
or turn the shears as you cut
because you will injure the
plant as well as your shears.
Painting the wounds with
tree wound dressing has lately
become a controversial prac-
tice. The standard recommen-
dation has been to paint all
wounds over one inch in
diameter with a quality tree
wound dressing to protect the
cut surface from wood-rotting'
organisms and checking
(radial cracking) upon .dry-
ing. Some research has'shown
that upon exposure to the sun,
the protective coating often
cracks, and moisture enters
the cracks and accumulates in
pockets that may occur be-
tween the wood and the wound
covering. This situation would
be even more inviting to
wood-rotting organisms, than
one with .no wound cover.
However, in situations where
aesthetics are important, the
practice is justified. If a,
pruning wound is to be pro-
tected, allow it to dry before
applying the dressing. This
will improve chances of good
bonding. Examine the coating
several times the first year.
Retreat if the coating has
cracked.
Clipping hedges require a
specialized type of pruning
and may become a continuous
job during the growing season.
There are two' important
factors to remember about
clipped hedges. The hedge
should be clipped while the
new growth is green and
succulent; also,-. the plant


get a cost estimate on this
proposal.
Comm. Tankersley discus-
sed the need for additional
space in the Gulf County
Ambulance building and for a
shelter for the "Jaws of Life".
The Chairman said that the
Board will study this matter
for a future decision.
Comm. Branch asked if
progress was being made on
correcting the faulty paving
on Second Avenue in Beacon
Hill. Reggie Tisdale, County
Engineer, with- the firm of
Barrett, Daffin, and Carlan
being present, informed the
Board that to properly correct
the faulty section of Second
Street, that base must be
removed and replaced with a
new clay base and then
repaved by the contractor. He
said that the county has
agreed to furnish the neces-
sary clay at the counties
expense and Florida Asphalt,
the Contractor, will repave the
street at its expense; that this
will take about one month to
commence this job and only
two weeks to do the work.
There was a motion by Comm.
Branch, seconded by Comm.
Tankersley, and unanimously
carried, to approve this pro-
ject as stated and to proceed
as soon as possible.
The Board discussed a letter
from the Governor directed to
the Sheriff with regards to
certain demands as to the
employment of additional per-
sonnel and certain require-
ments as to what should be
done in and about the jail. The
Board. was very displeased
with the contents of this letter
stating that there ,must be a
severe lack. of understanding
on the part of the state, in the
day to day operating of a
small county Sheriff's Depart-
ment where there is not even
sufficient funds to pay proper
salaries to the few employees
in the department and cer-
tainly no funds to pay for
unneeded and unnecessary
functions. The Board said that
a letter will be written to the
Governor concerning this
matter.

should be trimmed so that the
base of the hedge is wider than
the top so that light can reach
the lower leaves.
Unless a shrub is a topiary,
espalier, or part of a formal
hedge it should not be closely
clipped but allowed to develop
into a naturalistic form. This
does not mean that the plant
should be left alone, but that
pruning is done to enhance the
natural beauty of the plant.
The first step in pruning is to
remove all dead, diseased, or
injured branches. Once this is
done it may be necessary to
thin out the plant. Remove
branches that cross each other
or they will obviously become
entangled. If the shrub still
looks too thick remove some of
the older branches. Remove
any branches that are distinct-
ly different from the rest of
the shrub. Cut back excessive-
ly long growth to a bud that is
four to six inches below the
average branch length. If you
wish to reduce the size of the
shrub cut back each branch
four to six inches, to a new
bud. Do hot use hedge shears
but cut each branch sepa-
rately. This will provide a
neat, informal shrub, that
retains its naturalistic shape.


Follow

Too Close;

Ruin Day

Following too closely while
driving your motor vehicle
can spoil your whole day, said
the Florida Highway Patrol
recently.
"In nearly all crashes re-
sulting from following too
closely, the following driver is
charged with causing the
accident," said Patrol. Di-
rector Colonel Eldrige Beach.
"While drivers are not sup-
posed to make sudden stops
without signalling, many
times it becomes necessary to
avoid other traffic."
The only way' to prevent
having an accident as a result
of following, too closely is to
keep a reasonable and prudent
distance between you and the
vehicle ahead.
Following too closely contri-
butes to more crashes in
Florida annually than speed,
running stop signs, disregard-
ing traffic signals or improper
passing.
"If in doubt about a safe
following distance; drop back
more from the vehicle ahead
of you," concluded Beach.

"All men mean well."
George Bernard Shaw
