Board to Reduce


Teacher Staff


Estimated 11 Positions to be Eliminated Next Year


A continuing reduction in the birth rate and
income has forced the Gulf County School Board
to make a decision they had been putting off as
long as they could. Because of the reduction in
students and a tightening of the purse strings by
* the federal government and the state of Florida,
the School B3oard made the decision Tuesday
evening to reduce their teaching force by. 11 in
- the next school year. The Board now employs 145
teachers throughout the system. The reduction


scheduled for next year will mean a seven and a
half percent reduction in instructional personnel.
Superintendent Walter Wilder said some of
the planned reduction will come through
attrition, with two resignations already turned in
at Port St. Joe High School to become effective
before the end of the current school year. "These
two positions will not be filled", Wilder said.
Wilder said there has been a reduction of 64
students this year throughout the system, which


City Sells Piece of Land



to Material Transfer


The City Commission
agreed to sell an additional
small parcel of land to Mater-
ial Transfer, Inc., Tuesday
night, to give the new firm
more freedom in construction
of their barge basin on the
banks 6of the Gulf County
Canal for their coal shipping
operations.
The City had previously sold
the firm some two acres of
land, most of which was
submerged in. the waters of


the Canal, for construction of.
a part. of their barge basin.
Tuesday's land sale was to
give the. firm property on
which to construct a hitching
point for the barge basin. The
land sold Tuesday will have a
structure built which will be
sturdy enough to tie the
barges to and move them
about in the basin. The new
land 'sale doesn't involve ex-
cavation as the previous sale
did.


With the land sale, MTI has
agreed to install sheet piling
along the edge of their basin
property to prevent any ero-
sion from the excavation. The
City was anxious. about this
matter in previous negotia-
tions, but engineers had said
plans to reinforce the sides of
the basin with rock rip-rap
would be sufficient to protect
the City property adjoining.
The agreeinent to install the
sheet piling will enhance the


Recognize War Dead


Veterans of Foreign Wars recognized one
of Gulf County's war dead Saturday morning,
by placing a marker on the unmarked grave
of Oliver W. Campbell, a veteran of World
War II, in Holly Hill Cemetery.
S-Sgt. Campbell was born on April 18, 1921
and died January 20, 1976, Only a temporary
name plate and a concrete slab marked his
grave in Holly Hill. The VFW placed a marble


name plate on the grave Saturday in a simple
ceremony.

Hutto's Rep.

Will Visit
Congressman Earl Hutto's
office has announced that his
District Administrator, Earl
Hadaway, will be in Port St.
Joe on Wednesday, March 17,
in the Gulf County Courthouse,
Commissioners Hearing
Room, between the hours of
10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.m.,
EST, to meet with anyone
having a problem with the
Federal Government.
Anyone desiring assistance
from Congressman Hutto may
' meet with Mr. Hadaway at
this time, or they may contact

oystering. The. decision. to
close the waters temporarily
was made by the Department
of Natural Resources last
week, following a re-opening
of a closed area in Apalachi-
cola Bay..
Gulf County's closed oyster
bearing waters are all located
in Indian Lagoon, located in
the southern edge of Gulf
County near its border with
Franklin County.
Apalachicola Bay was clos-
ed to oyster harvesting on
February 6 by DNR due to
what they termed a high fecal
coliform count. Apalachicola
Bay has been closed on two
occasions this year, but Indian
Lagoon was closed last week
for the first time this year,
According to James T.
McNeill, the only large-scale
oyster producer working In-
dian Lagoon, the body of
water was closed because of
water running into the Lagoon
from the surrounding wood
lands, through mosquito con-
trol drain ditches.


Apalachicola Bay was clos-
ed when the Apalachicola
River started rising, causing
the coliform count to go up in
the Bay.
McNeill pointed out there
are no inhabitants living in-
land from the drainage area of
the Lagoon, a situation which
causes the problem with water
draining into Apalachicola
Bay. "All of our drainage
comes from the swamps",
Mcneill said.
Since there is only one Gulf
County producer of any size in
Indian Lagoon, it is unlikely
there will be the reaction over
the closing as followed the
closing of Apalachicola Bay.
Oystermen from Apalachicola
moved to Choctawhatchee
Bay and to East Bay in Bay
County to carry on their trade
when the Bay was closed.
When Apalachicola Bay is
normally closed to oystering,
it is closed from the southern
end of St. Vincent Island north
to a point about five miles
west of Apalachicola.


stability of the surrounding
-property, including that of the
City.
Tuesday's transaction in-
volved some 7,500 square feet
for which MTI paid $3,000.
PHONE COMPANY
The Commission agreed to
issue a building permit to St.
Joseph Telephone and Tele-
graph Company to install an
underground crossing of Ave-
nue A near the Millview
Subdivision in noith port Port
St. Joe.
The phone company showed
plans to jack the cable conduit
under the street without dis-
turbing the paving. The un-
derground crossing will lead
to a junction point on the north
side of Avenue A.
SCOUTS OFFER SERVICE
Scoutmaster Pat' McFar-
land approached the Commis-
sion Tuesday. asking for the
Board's cooperation in aiding
four Scouts in Troop 47 to earn
merit badges toward their
Eagle Scout rank.
McFarland said the four
boys need only a few more
badges to qualify for the Eagle
ranking and felt the civic
project would aid the boys in
becoming more civic minded
and help the City by perform-
ing a needed project.
McFarland volunteered the
services of the four scouts to
make a study of the City and
its inhabitants and place fire
alert stickers on bedroom
windows in the City where
,older people, invalids or small
children slept as a safety
measure'in case of fire in the
home.
McFarland explained the
stickers were promoted by
fire safety organizations to
alert fire fighters of places
where incapacitated people
might be sleeping and need
aid in escaping'from a burning
home in case of fire.
The Scoutmaster 'said. the
Scouts would locate the places
where the warning stickers
were needed and install them
if the City would purchase
them.
The Commission agreed to
purchase the warning stickers
and furnish flourescent paint
to paint the top of fire plugs for
easy location at night, if the
Scouts would paint the plugs.
McFarland .said they would
perform the chore. "The boys
will be glad to do it and they'll
do you a good job", McFar-
land said.
END AGREEMENT
In other action, the Com-
mission released William S.
Quarles, III from an agree-
ment to purchase a block in
north Port St. Joe, which
Quarles had placed a binder
with the City to purchase the
property to construct low-rent
housing in the area.
Quarles was unable to se-
cure government financing for
the project, a fate which has
struck several other similar
attempts in the past.
The agreement had been in
force for a year, by which
Quarles had paid a $1,000
binder on the property and
agreed to purchase the full
block at a price of $20,000
provided he could arrange
financing for the project.
When financing was found to
be unavailable, Quarles'
$1,000 binder was returned.


accounts for about three classes. The Board had
already cut the instructional staff by two
teachers and one administrator from last year's
roster, "but more cuts will be mandatory",
Wilder said.
Wilder said the Board is anticipating a
reduction in funding in Title I education, a
program which presently employs three instruc-
tors. The Superintendent said there would be
some moving around of instructors rather than
making all the cuts from instructors of
discontinued programs.
FOOTBALL COACH HIRED
The School Board found itself in the position
of receiving resignations from both football
coaches in the county at the end of 1981, both of
which became effective early this year.
Tuesday, after receiving several applica-
tions and studying their options, the Board
decided on a replacement for football coach
Wayne Taylor at Port St. Joe High School. The
Board employed Shaw Maddox, an assistant in
the football program this past season, to take
over the head coaching position at Port St. Joe
High School. Maddox came to Port St. Joe at the
beginning of the current school year from
Bainbridge, Georgia, where he had served as an
assistant. Maddox has also coached at Colum-
bus, Georgia.
The new football coach is also serving as the
baseball coach in the current school year.
The Board still has to find a replacement for
resigned football coach Bobo Owens of Wewa-
hitchka High School.
SUSPENSION UPHELD
The School Board received the decision of a
hearing board on the matter of a suspension
without pay of Clarence Monette last spring by
tje Slperintendent and School. Board.
Monette had been suspended .for a week
without pay stemming from a charge of using
school time, material arid reproduction equip-
ment to participate in a local political campaign.
Monette asked that his punishment be sent to
a state committee for arbitration and a hearing.
The decision was sent to the School Board this
week.
The decision, according to Superintendent
Wilder, upheld the Board's decision to suspend,
but disagreed with the withholding of a week's
pay because of a technicality stemming from a
court decision made in south Florida at about
the same time Monette's case was being handled
by the local Board.
Wilder stated that the Board was not bound
to follow the recommendation of the examining
board. He said the School'Board would not make
its final decision in the case without first
securing legal advice ,on their decision and


making an intense study of the ruling made by
the committee. "Whatever we finally decide
upon, we want it to come after thorough study
and based on sound legal advice", Wilder said.
Monette was suspended temporarily by
Superintendent Wilder on May 28, 1981 and his
decision was upheld by the School Board in a
regular meeting on June 2, 1981. He was
suspended for a week without pay beginning on
May 28.


New Pastor

Rev. Howard Browning, assumed his duties as pastor of
the First Baptist Church Sunday morning, preaching his first
sermon as the new pastor at the morning worship service.
Rev. Browning and his family moved into the First
Baptist pastorium on Palm Boulevard last Friday.
Rev. Browning graduated from Murphy High School,
Mobile, Alabama. He attended college at the University of
Southern Mississippi and Mobile College. He is a graduate of
Baptist Bible Institute in Graceville.
Before coming to Port St. Joe, Rev. Browning was pastor
of the Oates Avenue Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia.
He served as pastor of Howard Carlisle Baptist Church in
Panama City before moving to Georgia.
Rev. Browning is shown in the picture above, along with
his wife, Charlotte and their son, Tracy. -Star photo


Classroom Teachers Agree to Pact


Gulf County's Classroom
Teachers agreed by a lop-


sided vote in favor 'of a
compromise contract propos-


al, ironed out by negotiating
teams recently.


Abandoned Auto


This automobile ran off Highway 98 and
into the woods some time during the night
Monday night. The driver of the car, whoever
he was, took off and hasn't been seen or heard
from since.
According to State Department of Motor
Vehicle records, the car belongs to Robert
Bishop of St. Petersburg and local law
officials believe he was the driver, since a
telephone call to St. Petersburg verified that


The contract, which will
affect 145 Gulf County teach-
ers who have been working'
without a wage contract since
August of last year, was
approved by the voting teach-
ers, 123 to five.
The agreement would give
teachers an immediate $700
per year pay increase for the
current school year. In addi-
tion, the agreement provides
for a 10 percent wage increase
in the next school year.
In addition to the wage
agreement, the contract
would increase the School
Board contribution to the
hospitalization insurance cov-
erage and provide for a more
generous terminal leave pay
for teachers.
The contract is now up to the
School Board for approval.
The Board met Tuesday after-
noon.
Formal signing of the con-
tract will probably be delayed
for a few days since the
teacher's chief negotiator,
Burt Wagnon, is hospitalized
after back surgery.
Wagnon had said earlier
that the Gulf County Cl.s,,-
room Teachers Association
had hoped to negotiate a
larger pay hike for this year,
but agreed to settle for the
$700 increase in exchange for
the promise of a 10 percent
boost in pay next year, after
several proposals were made
by both sides in the negotiat-
ing process.
When it is ratified, the new
.contract will remain in force
for three years.

Bishop has left his home there and was
driving the abandoned vehicle when he left.
According to Gulf County Sheriff's
Department spokesmen, the car apparently
skidded on Highway 98 and went off into the
woods, where it became stuck in the muddy
bottom of a ditch. The driver then abandoned
the car near Ward Ridge road and hasn't been

Our telephone has rung off the

:-concerning the question of whether
or not Gulf County has lost its high

W'f-ighland View.
A story in last Tuesday's
Panama City News Herald led many
to believe that the bridge had been
scratched by Governor Bob Gra-
Sham.
- The story in the News Herald
made its comment based only on the
information contained in one letter,
written to the county by the office of
Governor Bob Graham. Receiving a
letter from Governor Graham's
office is considerably different from-

Gi'aham himself.

Gulf County called on the DOT to
proceed with building the bridge
right now, since Gulf County had the
finances arranged to put in the port.
The letter received by the
County and used as the basis for the
News Herald story, said, in effect,
the bridge at Highland View is in
pretty good shape now since the
state has spent a lot of money in
changing and repairing its lift
machinery. In view of that expendi-
ture, the State feels it cannot just
jump right at this time and replace
the bridge. The letter said the bridge
there now, even though it is not
desirable because of its method of
operation, will do the job for a time
at least.
The DOT still has not erased its
commitment to replace the bridge
with a high rise permanent span
when work on the port is started.
They have only refused to start
building the bridge right now this
year.
So far as the bridge is concern-
ed, the letter used by the News
Herald for its stor'Yieither enhances
or detracts from Gulf County's
position for receiving a new bridge
at Highland View.

Commission asked the question,

Pastor, Wewahitchka
First Baptist Church
Did you ever hear of the
scapegoat? Well, we are living
in a scapegoat society in
America.
To get a picture of the first
record of the scapegoat read
Leviticus 16.
This passage gives an ac-
count of Aaron receiving
instructions regarding the
scapegoat:
"And Aaron shall lay both
his hands upon the head of the
live goat, and confess over
him all the iniquities of the
children of Israel, and all their
transgressions in all their
sins, putting them upon the
head of the goat, and shall
send him away by the hand of
a fit man into the wilderness:
And the goat shall bear upon
him all their thoughts unto a
land not inhabited: and he
shall let go the goat in the
wilderness."
This is indeed an interesting
Biblical passage. The goat
was an innocent creature-
even though he was still a
goat. Symbolically, uponhis
head was placed all the sins
and transgressions of the
children of Israel. Then, this
'innocent goat was sent forth
into the desolate wilderness.
Space does not permit a study
of the spiritual implications of
this passage. But we propose
to deal briefly with the ethical.
and moral thrusts of it.
Criminals and their defend-
ers in our society are creating
scapegoats to pay for the
misdeeds of criminals.
Innocent, law-abiding and
tax paying citizens are forced
to pay from $15,000 to $25,000
per year per prisoner to care
for the prison population.
Demands are increasing that
we scapegoats provide Holi-
day Inn comforts and con-
veniences for the criminals.
When President Kennedy
Swas, killed in Dallas, some
.. social architects said that all
of American society was
guilty of this murder. They
tried to make all Americans
the scapegoat for the crime of
one man. Hogwash!
Many parents try to make
scapegoats of teachers in the
public schools when children
fail, or become unruly, or get
into serious trouble with
school authorities or with law
enforcement officials.
Husbands and wives who
turn to adultery often try to
make scapegoats of their
companions because the com-
panions' "didn't understand
them."
Drunkards try to make
scapegoats of family mem-
bers saying family members
"drove them to it."
Prodigal son Christians try
to make scapegoats of other
Christians who caused them, to
stumble.


Temper tantrum addicts try.
to make scapegoats of family
members or. fellow workers
who "provoke them to it."
Thieves and robbers try to
make society their scapegoat
because society didn't "give
them a fair shake in life,"
And so it goes that the warp
and woof of our entire society


is shot through with the
scapegoat mania.
The guilty and their friends
are looking for somebody to
blame- other than the guilty.
The guts of the land are
gone! Too few people have the
backbone to stand on their
own two feet and accept the
consequences of their conduct.


Scapegoats are in abundance.
In this blessed bee-hive
called "America" scapegoat
drones are shaking the very
foundations of the ship of
state- and of society.
The time has come for every
man to be a man- to face the
music, pay the price for his
weaknesses, and profit from

The Solid Citizen

/* I By Shad Phantry


We all know it's hard to get
going sometimes. We wake up
hating to face another day of
the same old thing; call on the
same customers, go to the
same office, work with ,the
same people, or just face some
of the same problems that we
faced yesterday.
Why -should we do it?
Perhaps we do it because we
have a family that needs the
home, food, clothing, and
education. Or, perhaps we
have a wife that spends more
than she should- maybe it is
us that spends too much. Some
of us may- do it for a


combination of these reasons
or maybe we're lucky and are
motivated by the satisfaciton
of just doing a good job.
Whatever our reasons, pray
that they are strong and
motivating.ones, because we
are about to look at some
figures that may startle you.
Let's look at-some cold hard
facts that you and I are faced
with.
Take one hundred (100) men
who are now twenty-five and
let's see where these men will
be when they are sixty-five
years old:
One will be wealthy; four


will have all the money they
need; five will still be work-
ing; thirty-six will have died;
fifty-four will be dependent
upon family, friends or some
government agency for their
livelihood. (From the Institute
of Life Insurance).
. Startling facts? Yes, and
let's look at them a little
closer. I personally don't plan
on dying. The wagers I have
made with the insurance
companies just about assures
me of this, so I can mark off
.36 of these (I hope). Since I
have no wealthy relatives and
missed the Reader's Digest


the experience. Mice cannot
or will not do this- MEN will!
Are you a man or a mouse?
So, as you watch the world
go by, why not resolve to be
done with scapegoats. You
may be forced to be one
yourself but it is beneath the
dignity of a real man to make
a scapegoat of another.


Sweepstakes, odds tell me I
"ornt be" wealthy. Scratch one
more.
At the rate I'm going today,
there is no way I can hold out
and still be working when I'm
sixty-five. There goes another
five of the hundred. This
leaves two categories: the
fifty-four that will be depen-
dent on someone and the four
that will have all the money
they need.
I don't know about you, but I
don't have any family mem-
bers that would or could afford
to support me- much less
friends! The .government
scares me so much that I can't
afford to take a chance on it,
so there goes fifty-four more
positions that I don't fit into.
Now, there is one category
left with four positions; one
for me, one for you, and two
for two other men. I don't
know about you but I'm way
behind and it scares me, so
I'm going to lay this pen down
and get myself to work.

every month, trying to get rid of bugs,
the U. S. Government is going to spend
good money rounding up some stray
bugs to place on the next trip of
"Columbia", the space hopping banana
we plan to send up on its third trip on
March 22.
Space scientists want to place some
bugs in the craft to see how a trip
through space affects them.
If the trip through space is like
other traumatic experiences bugs have
.had in the past, they'll come back with
a hardier bug, more bugs and a new
outlet as a source of customers for the
pest control people.
We'll have a new version of Noah's
Ark with Columbia sailing through
space with a cargo of bugs. There'll be
two flies, two roaches, two drone honey
bees, caterpillar moths, moth pupae,
etc.


On top of the unusual experiment
will probably be a price tag which will
amount to more than Gulf County will
spend this year trying to get rid of
mosquitoes. One government agency
will spend millions trying to figure out
how to preserve insects in an unusual
environment while Gulf County is
spending thousands trying to get rid of
another kind of insect.
I read the other day where a house
fly was found in a bit of tree wax, both
of which had been there for thousands
of years. The fly survived while the
dinosaur became extinct. The fly.
survived while the saber tooth tiger bit
the dust. The house fly survived while
the mammoth just faded away (or is an
elephant just a bald mammoth?)
Whatever they find out on that
space trip for insects, we'll wager one
of the things they will find is that these
insects are particularly adaptable for
whatever is tossed their way.
If we go looking for something, let's
see if we can find out how they did it.
Then maybe we can generate our
electricity with nuclear energy without
the fear of annihiliation.

Finally, legislative intent is
expressed that the 30 percent

Specialist To Aid Elderly


To Combat Depression


SShannon Williams was re-
cently hired as the new
gerontology specialist for the
Senior Adult Guidance Pro-
gram of the Northwest Florida
Mental Health Center. Mrs.
Williams will be working out
of'the Gulf County Guidance
Clinic in Port St. Joe. She will
be.providing specialized coun-
seling for persons age 55 and

Guidance Program is to assist
older people in understanding
and dealing with the aging
process. Program counselors
work to help older clients
learn to handle depression,
anxiety, loneliness, anger, or
inter-personal conflicts. The
program also provides assist-
ance to families of older
persons to help them better
understand the difficulties and
needs of the older family

to solve their problems.
The healthy older person is
basically no more likely to
develop emotional problems
than is anyone else in our
community. However, older
people, on the average, do
encounter more stress than
younger people. This stress
tends to take the form of losses
more frequently in later life. It
is not uncommon for an older
person to have experienced
one or more of the following
losses: loss of loved ones when
family members move away,
loss of loved ones by death,
loss of income, loss of employ-
ment, loss of status, loss of
feelings of self worth. When
one or more of these losses
occur in the same person over
a relatively short period of
time, emotional difficulties
may develop. It is at times like
these that the Senior Adult
Guidance Program counselor
is able to work effectively with
the individual and-or the fami-
ly to reduce the level of
distress. If problems such as
those described above do not
go away within a reasonable
period of time, it is advisable
to seek professional help in
working them through.
The counseling services of
the Senior Adult Guidance
Program are also available to
homebound older persons.
Mrs. Williams received her
bachelor's degree in psycholo-
gy from Florida State Uni-
versity in 1979 and is presently
working toward her master's
degree in psychology at the
University of West Florida
Extension in Panama City.

his face last Friday afternoon as he welcomed
Brownie Troops 242 and 305 to their new home
in the church. Lending their talents to the


support of the girls were Carol Durham, Don

The Brownies, all 23 of them, were

County Agent to Speak At Sea Oats


The Sea Oats and Dunes
Garden Club met February 9.
Mrs. Hazel Wyman gave an
interesting program on poin-
settias.
Plans were made to start a
litter cleanup campaign this
spring.
Hostesses for the meeting


A group of 29 people got
together Monday and took a
trip to Tallahassee to attend
the Lawrence Welk concert,
one of his last to be given on
the road before he retires.
The trip to Tallahassee
didn't go quite as smooth as
Welk's music.
Leaving here in a bus,
owned by the First Baptist
Church, the group had a fan
belt break and go through the
radiator of the bus. Driver Bill
Rich called the Hubert Rich-
ards' and the Briggs Scissons'
in Tallahassee, both long-time
Port St. Joe families. The
transplanted Port St. Joe
people contacted authorities
in Tallahassee and had the
group picked up and deposited
at the Tallahassee Civic Cen-
ter for the concert.
In the meantime, Billy Joe
Rish and Cecil Pettis had been
called and were on their way-
to Tallahassee with the Metho-
dist Church bus to pick up the
concert-goers and bring them
home. Billy Joe and Cecil
arrived about 30 minutes after
the concert and the travellers
arrived back home about 1:00
a.m., on Tuesday morning.
Despite the troubles and
with the help of people all over
the Panhandle, the concert
visitors were able to report


that they had a grand time.
Attending the concert were:
Mr. and Mrs. Norman Sulzer,
Mr. and Mrs. Ted Frary, Mr.
and Mrs. Bill Rich, Mr. and
Mrs. George Hamby, Mr. and
Mrs. William Pfost, Mr. and
Mrs. John Joe Buzzett, Hugh
Daniels, Mrs. I. C. Nedley,
Mrs. James Chewning, Mrs.

a comparatively small team,
-compared with their oppon-
ents, the Sharks used their

The Sharks had their moment of glory
after the District championship game with
the Wakulla-Wir Eagles last Saturday night,
after the Sharks won the game in overtime.

17 reasons. One smart decision.


Port St. Joe's Sharks, who
had lost several games this
year by slim margins,
reversed their trend and
bumped Blountstown and Wa-
ulla in Blountstown over the
week end to take the District
2A championship.
The Sharks edged Blounts-
town's Tigers 50-45 on Friday-
night and came back to dump
Wakulla 42-34 in overtime.
The Sharks and the Tigers
were only one point apart at
halftime Friday night, with
the Sharks in the lead, 19-18. In
the third period, the Tigers
came back to take a two point
lead, only to lose it back to the
Sharks, who scored 19 points
in the final period, while
holding the Tigers to 12.
Marty Russ and Jerry Fil-
more carried the Sharks with
their 17 and 16 points respec-
tively. Calvin Freeman
pumped 12 points through the
hoop to help the Sharks' cause.

Saturday,.both the Wakulla
War Eagles and the Sharks
decided to use the same
slow-down tactics, with the
Sharks coming out on top in
overtime to win the District
title.
Marty Russ started off hot
for the Sharks, scoring six
points in the first period, for
all the shark points. Mean-
while, the Tigers could put
only two points on the board.

press and couldn't cope with
the taller Tigers when they
went man to man.
The Sharks ended their
season with a 13-11 record.
The Sharks took a slim 8-6
lead at the end of the first
period, but after that point,'
the Tigers took over and never
were behind for the rest of the
game. The Tigers led 28-21 at
the half.
The Tigers opened up the
game in the third period and
squashed two Shark rallies to
preserve their lead and win
the game.
Michael Pittman led the
Shark scoring with 16 points
and Jerry Filmore added 12.

their 42-34 win. The Ehgles
went without a.single point in
the extra period.


Jerry Filmore started off
the second period for the
Sharks, increasing the Shark
lead, 8-2. Then Wakulla came
to life and tied the score on
three straight field goals by
Greg Rosier. With the score
tied as the half time wound
down, Jerry Filmore put the
Sharks ahead at the rest point
by two points with.a field goal.
In the third period, Wakulla
started feeding the ball to
David Manning, who scored
three times. Calvin Freeman
and Jerry Filmore kept the
Sharks in the lead with four
field goals between them. The
Eagles were making their free
shots and the Sharks weren't,
to keep the Eagles close.

a six point lead early in the
third period, but the persistent
Eagles tied the game with
only 1:38 left.
As the fourth period opened,
Will Childress scored one of
his two field goals to put the
Eagles in the lead for the first
time in the game.

six free throws while the
Sharks were getting none off
four attempts.
Late in the last quarter, with
1:16 left, Marty Russ hit two
charity shots to bring the

praiser specifically asked that
her costs and attorney's fees
.be paid by the county but that
the judge had denied these

told that all employees should
be paid according to Board
policy.

County and he thought the
Board might want to talk to
the Calhoun County Commis-
sion concerning this matter.
Comm. Birmingham agreed
