County Goes Back to Drawing Board
With Landfill Plans
Hunt Economical Disposal Method
After nearly five years of trying to
come to a solution of what to do with
solid wastes in south Gulf County, the
Commission decided Tuesday to con-
sider going back to the drawing board
after tentatively reaching a decision.
With a notice from the Department
of Environmental Regulation that a
land-fill proposal in the south of Gulf
County had been approved in concept
on their desk Tuesday, the Board heard
the comments from their new land-fill
director, Doug Kent, that the operation
would be too expensive for the county, to
S get into. Former director, Tommy
Pitts, had already warned the Commis-
sion of the tremendous operational
costs with their plan and costs which
could run for years into the future, even
after the proposed land-fill site Ais
The DER has notified the Commis-
sion that a request for a land-fill permit
on the old Niles Tramroad had been
approved to serve all of Gulf County.
Under the County plan, solid wastes
from all collection points south of
Cypress Creek would be hauled to this
The only fly in. the ointment was
that the proposed and permitted site is
an aboveground garbage burial site, a
situation which will cause problems in
operation and in the future.
In operation, the system would
cause problems with obtaining dirt to
cover the collected solid waste with two
feet of earth every day, as required in
the permit. This burial practice would
result in the building of a giant mound,
making the property practically unus-
able in the future. Present land-fill
practices turns the land back to the
land-owner after it is filled, and tree
farming is then carried out on the land.
With the permitted burial site,
pumps must be run at all times, to keep
the area de-watered and insure that no
garbage is buried in the underground
water table. It is this high water table
which is giving the county problems in
finding an approved burial site.
Another problem is that the county
will have to purchase up to 40 acres for
garbage burial and can use the site for
only an estimated five years. In the
past years, burial sites were loaned to
the county since land-fill operations

SCong. Hutto, Senator Thoi
Two weeks ago, a story in an area daily
alarmed many people in the Port St. Joe area,
since the story speculated on whether or not Gulf
County had received news that a new bridge
across the Gulf County Canal on Highway 98 at
Highland View had been scratched by Governor
The story was based on an answer to a
resolution sent to the State of Florida by the
County Commission asking that the bridge be
built immediately, with the resulting answer
from the Governor that he couldn't recommend
Letters received this week by the County
Commission, adds assurance to the fact that the
new bridge, a high-rise span, is still in the
The immediate replacement of the bridge is
tied in to a declared need by the federal
government, a need which has not been obtained
as yet, resulting in Governor Graham's letter.
Letters from Senator Pat Thomas, Department
of Transportation Secretary Paul Pappas and
Congressman Earl Hutto, states that plans are
progressing for replacing the balky drawbridge
now spanning the Canal and attempts are going
ahead strong to get the federal government to
declare a need for a new bridge at this location.
nas, DOT Write
picture Cleared Up
Congressman Hutto said in his letter, "I
would be more than happy to work with you, the
Florida Department of Transportation, and the
Governor's Office in making this bridge a top
priority in the upcoming fiscal year".
A letter from Senator Pat Thomas said, "I
share your concern for this issue and feel that
construction of the new bridge should certainly
be a high priority upon further development and
use of the canal I have asked the Senate
Appropriations staff to assist me in reviewing
the progress of the planned construction of this
Senator Thomas also said he would explore
the matter further and keep advised on progress
being made on the new bridge.
Pappas' letter expressed much the same
thing the Governor's letter did earlier by
pointing out that since extensive repairs were
made in 1977, the operation of the present bridge
has been substantially improved. He pointed out
that as with all things mechanical, malfunctions
would continue to occur in the future.
Pappas pointed out that the Highland View
bridge has been identified in the Department's
bridge replacement program for several years.
The bridge does not presently qualify for federal
funds, but the DOT is taking steps to change this
Pappas stated; "Recently, I became aware
of the commitment made by former Secretary
Tom Webb to provide a new bridge by the time
Gulf County's port became operational. I have
discussed this matter with the Governor and he
agrees the Department should make every
attempt to fulfill this commitment."
Pappas pointed out that restricted state
funds at present severely limits DOT's ability to
fund only critical and emergency bridge repair
needs. "Replacement projects must therefore
qualify for federal aid funding as this is the only
source of funds we have to pursue", he pointed
In light of these letters, the bridge has not
been removed from the replacement plans. The
project being accomplished in the very near
future hangs on the building of the port or having
the bridge designated by the federal government
as having a need for replacement. This has been
the situation with the bridge all along. Nothing
has been changed. If any change has been made
it is in the increased interest of a need here by
those who will make the decision as to just when
the replacement work will begin.

17 reasons. One smart decision.
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, MARCH 11, 1982
vegetable crops have to eat
too. And, we have to feed
them- fertilizer, that is. But,
fertilizers can be confusing.
What do the numbers on the
tag mean? How much of which
kind should you use? And
when -and how should the
fertilizer be applied?
Florida's generally sandy
soils are notoriously infertile.
This is a major problem faced
by commercial farmers and
backyard gardeners alike.
You can improve the fertility
of your home vegetable gar-
den soil with animal manures
and other kinds of organic
matter. But, in most situa-
tions, you also need to add a
commercial fertilizer contain-
ing significant amounts of the
three major plant nutrients.
Plants need a variety of
nutrients.- But, the major
elements you must supply are
nitrogen, phosphorus, and po-
tassium. These nutrients are'
always listed in that order in
the analysis shown on the
fertilizer tag. The analysis
also indicates the quantity of
each major element contained
in the mix. For example, a
100-lb. bag of 8-8-8 fertilizer
contains eight.lbs. of nitrogen
compound, eight lbs. of phos-
phorus, in the form of phos-
phoric acid, and eight lbs. of
potassium compound called
The type and amount of
fertilizer you will need will
depend largely on the kind of
soil in your garden. Your
objective is to add only those
nutrients that your soil doesn't
already contain in adequate
amounts to support vigorous
vegetable growth. You should
remember that too much
fertilizer can be as bad as too
little. Of course, if you apply
too little, your garden will be
unproductive. But, if you add
too much, you'll waste money,
and you may even injure your
In general, a 8-8-8 or 10-10-10
analysis fertilizer is best for
sandy soils. For sandy soils,
and other soils with a low/
nitrogen content, you'll need
between two and five pounds
of fertilizer for every 100 sq. ft.
of garden space. On organic
soils, you'll need one or two
pounds per 100 square feet. If
the soil in your garden isn't
typical of either of these
common types, you should
have your soil analyzed to
determine the best kind of
fertilizer for your particular
