Two KilledIn Shooting



Argument Over Gambling Debt Ends In Death


STwo men are dead as a result of an old west
shoot-out here in Port St. Joe Tuesday night.
Gene Daniels, age 47, and Claude Thomas, Jr.,
age 27, were both pronounced dead on arrival at
Gulf. Pines Hospital about 9:30 Tuesday night,
after the shoot-out in front of the Cozy Bar on Main
Street in North Port St. Joe.
Details of the shooting were still sketchy
Wednesday morning, with the matter still under
investigation by the Gulf County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, the State Attorney's office and the Port St.
Joe Police Department. Witnesses have said the
shooting resulted from an argument which started

over a gambling debt, but no further details were
available yesterday morning.
Sheriff's spokesman, Deputy Jack Davilla,
told The Star, "one of the men was shot with a 32
caliber pistol and the other was shot by a 22, but
we still are not. definitely certain which man had
which gun". Davilla said both bodies were sent to
Panama City Tuesday night, for examination by
the Medical Examiner's office, to determine the
answer to some of the questions law officials have
in the shooting.
Thomas was shot four times in the fracas and
Daniels died as the result of two shots being


pumped into his body.
Port St. Joe Police Officer James Graves said
he was parked on the side of Highway 98 about 9:30
when a car came by at high speed. "I took out
after the car, and it went to the hospital". Graves
said the car contained the body of Thomas.
"A crowd gathered quickly at the hospital,"
Graves said, "about the time I got the crowd settl-
ed down, here they came bringing Daniels in and
he was dead too".
Details of the shooting and the cause of the
altercation are still under investigation by the
three law enforcement agencies involved in the
matter.

County Board Challenges


Lake Board's Authority On Hold Court Decision In Suit
Gulf County's Board of In his order, Judge Bodiford tative budgets


The Dead Lakes Water Management Board
still has its authority over the Wewahitchka
fishing paradise on hold, after Circuit Judge Larry
Bodiford refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed
recently by a Panama City man on behalf of
several property owners at the lakes.
Judge Bodiford had granted a temporary
injuction against the Board to keep them from
removing all or a portion of the dam as a possible
solution to the continued deterioration of fish
population in the lake. The temporary injuction
was filed by Monroe Sullivan of Panama City,
enjoining the Board from making a decision to
alter the dam. Sullivan said he took his steps only
Sto prevent the Board removing a portion of the
dam before any legal action could stop them.
Sullivan has said he is not necessarily in favor
of leaving the dam intact, he just wants the
property owners to have some control over any
hasty decisions which might be made by the
Management Board.
Sullivan's attorneys, Jerry Gerde and Mayo


Johnston, argued that a 1972 law creates seven
water management districts across the. state and
repealed the 1957 legislative act which created the
Dead Lakes Management Board.
The Board's attorney, Hentz McClellan of
Blountstown, argued that the board's authority
was not specifically repealed by the 1972 law and
that the board still has authority to regulate and
dismantle the dam. This authority wvas given to the
Board in special action by the Legislature.
'The board, which was appointed this year by
Governor Bob Graham, got into a sticky situation
from lack of water in the lakes caused by drought
and an expressed need to lower the lakes to allow
water weeds to be killed by nature. One of the first
actions, by the new board was to remove the gates
from a drawdown structure at the -lakes, so the
water could flow, if even on a restricted basis,
draining the lakes.
Since that time, the Board has been
considering removal of a portion of the dam to


allow the lakes to be cleared of a large amount of
silt which has collected behind the dam,
discouraging fish from bedding and reproducing
in the lakes. Removal of the dam section would
also give spawning fish greater access to the
lakes.
The fact that the fish spawning season is
drawing near probably raised the thought the
Board might be considering removal of a portion
of the dam in just a short while.
The decision of Judge Bodiford Monday
afternoon in his quarters in Panama City,
postponed that possibility for a time at least.
The Dead Lakes Board has now petitioned the
court for a full evidentuary hearing to determine
whether the board has the authority to regulate
the lakes or whether their authority was eroded by
the 1972 law.
The Board contends they were not affected by
the law and have the right to control the lakes as
they determine.


Commissioners agreed last
Friday morning in a special
session to ask Circuit Judge
Larry Bodiford for a second
hearing, asking the judge to
reconsider his decision in the
suit against the County, filed
by Property Appraiser Joyce
Williams.
The Commission received
the official decision of the
judge in the case this past
week and considered its con-
tents in the special meeting
Friday morning. At the meet-
ing, the board's attorney,
William J. Rish advised the
Commission, "You may win
the battle, but not the war. We
just need to know where we
stand in our ability to adopt a

Gulf County Crime Rate

Among State's Lowest


Crime has taken a back seat
in Gulf County, according to a
release by the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement last
week.
Only 15 of Florida's 66
counties can boast a better
crime rate than Gulf County.
With Dade County leading
the pack with 10,457 crimes
reported per 100,000 people,
Gulf County is number 51 in


line with its rate of 2,931 per
100,000 population crime rate.
Since Gulf County's actual
population is far less than the
100,000 figuring base, the rate
equates down to about 295
crimes committed during the
past year.
In the Panhandle, Jackson,
Washington, Wakulla, Cal-
houn, Holmes and Liberty
counties had better rates than
Gulf.

oDrunk Driver Law ,..



Tough but come ...-fR:: ]


Florida's Legislature has bitten
the bullet and come up with a
drunken driving law which should
discourage people from driving and
S:drinking all at the same time. The
bill still had to be signed by the
Governor when this was written, but
the assumption was that Governor
Graham would place his signature
on the bill, causing it to become law.
There is no doubt but what
Florida needed a tough drunken
-driving law. More than a third of our
: .traffic deaths are directly attribut-
able to drunken or drinking drivers.
-About the same percentage holds
true for the thousands who are
injured, some seriously and some
resulting in serious handicaps from
auto accidents caused by drinking
drivers.
There is no way to estimate the
tremendous cost in money, suffering
Sand property, caused each year by
drinking drivers. The amount would
probably stagger the imagination.
SYet we only recently did away with a
law which forced us to get our
brakes inspected while we allowed
the much more dangerous danger-
'., ', * driver to tour the highways
m :aost unmolested.
SOne thing which can be both
,good and bad about the new drunken
driving law .is that its penalty is
mandatory. If one is proven as
driving while drunk for the first
Time, the law calls for certain
penalties to be applied. Only the
Severity is negotiable. On the second
offense, another set of penalties
applies, and so on.

Bible asks the question, 'Why seek
e. ye the living among the dead?"
The Bible is quoting the words
where the resurrected Jesus is
asking the disciples why they are
looking for him in the graveyard,
Swhen he is alive and about doing the
S business of the Father as he was sent
. to do.
S As with so many verses in the
:Bible, there is also another meaning

'I-he greater portion of the'people'of
the world worship gods which are
d4ad and inantimate objects, than
worship the true and living God.
Easter is an annual reminder of


The first offense does not send
the offender to jail. It does take
away his driver's license for 90 days
and forces him to go to classes
designed to prevent one from
driving and drinking in the future.
The new law is tough. There is
no denying that. If a person gets
caught with an 'illegal alcohol count
in his bloodstream, he is going to be
very inconvenienced for at least 90
days as well as be responsible for
paying heavy fines and costs, which
can run up as high as $500 for that
first offense. The penalty REALLY
gets, tough on the second, third, etc.,
times one is caught and found to be
guilty.
Already people who make and
enforce the law are having misgiv-
ings about this new law. They feel
many marginal drunk drivers will
get by, because the officials making
the arrests in the first place will be
reluctant to cause such a stiff
penalty to be applied against
someone who drinks and drives
maybe once .a year.
Already, the law has some stiff
penalties. Judges CAN sentence first
offenders to jail for as many as 90
days. Rarely do judges impose the
sentence because of its severity.
There will be no such choice to make
in the future, if the new law is
signed.
We're happy there is something
done about removing these hazard-
ous drivers from the highways. We
hope the cure doesn't prove to be
worse than the disease and discour-
age any future efforts to improve
upon it.



erStory

the God which sent His Son to die for
us that we might be with God in
eternity. Witnesses galore testify all
through the New Testament about
the birth, life, death,, burial and
resurrection of Christ. Many of the
witnesses are unimpeachable, yet
they still tell the same story.
Can the dead gods make this
same claim? Do they have witnesses
to the lives of their gods?
Ironically, the epitome of wor-
ship for those worshiping dead gods
is to diefor that god or its cause. The
epitome for the Christian is to live
for God in such a manner that God
will be glorified. If there is any dying
to be doie, it will be done defending
the right to worship the one and true
God.
This Easter, we all ought to
pledge to live for God and re-new our
faith in the fact that our God lives
-and causes us to live also - for
eternity.

I'll never forget the first

the time, I thought it was the
most phenomenal invention I
had ever seen. I still think it's

Prayers Being Answered


Dear Wesley:
I would like to take this
means to convey a special
thanks to all my friends and
neighbors in Gulf County for
their prayers and support
during my recent surgery.
On February 15, my open
heart surgery was a complete
success. On March 26, a clot
occurred in one of the three
by-passes. This came as a
surprise to me, but not to my
doctors, and, of course, caus-
ed some anxious moments.
My doctors tell me this is not
unusual, and the clot has been .


treated medically.
Recovery from open heart
surgery takes longer than I
anticipated. However, I am
progressing every day, spend-
ing limited time in the office,
and hope to be back full time
in a week or so.
It is wonderful to know that
the prayers of good people
have been, are being, and
always will be answered, for I
am walking proof.
I love you all.
Sincerely,
Ken Murphy

any other county in the Panhandle. I
feel that at least half of the population

ida rivalry. Most of the transplanted
Alabamians here in the Panhandle
have finally learned to think in terms of
Bobby Bowden and Charley Pell. It
took them a long time to forget people
like "Bear" Bryant, Pat Dye and
their predecessors. An Auburn Tiger is
almost an extinct animal here in Gulf
County, just as it is in India. Many of
our people have been removed from
Alabama for so long, they don't even


remember that the mascot of the
University of Alabama is the elephant.
Most of them think it is a box of red Tide
washing powders.
If we were to become a part of
Alabama, all of us would have to work
on accepting the fact that Bear can
walk on water and have our belief
affirmed that the South will, indeed,
rise again.
There are certain loyalties which
would be required of us to be known as
Alabamians. First we would have to
teach our people to pronounce it "Ala-
bam-er". Then we would have to
explore the contention that the navel of
the world is in Birmingham.
Alabama would have to make some
changes, too.
The people of that illustrious state
would just have to come to accept the
fact that this part of Florida (or
Alabama, if the change is made) was
the only state in the South which didn't
surrender its capitol to the Yankees in
the Civil War. We have our pride, and
the people of what is now Alabama
would have to come to respect us for


what we are. In that respect, the
Panhandle of what is now Florida
would have to be known as the supreme
part of Alabama and not a piece which
was just tacked on as an afterthought at
the last minute.
+++
IF WE WERE TO become a part of
Alabama, there is a good chance the
state would go ahead and resurface all
of Highway 71, from Gulf County to
Marianna and put it in driveable shape
once again. It could be, that were we to
become a part of Alabama, we might be
able to get on the map rather than be
stuck out in the middle of the Gulf of
Mexico like we are on Florida maps.
I feel certain, that if we were a part
of Alabama, the State would not now be
tearing up a perfectly good section of
road approaching the Highland View
bridge, just so it can be re-surfaced,
when there are so many other roads in
our part of Florida (or Alabama) which
need that re-surfacing money so much
more.
Being a part of Alabama would be
different, but the difference might be
something good.

Engineers Make First WWP Work Report


Pat Parrish, an engineer
with the firm of Jones and Ed-
munds and Associates of
Gainesville, made his first
report to the City commissi- n

make improvements to the
Wastewater Treatment plant.
Estimated to cost some $1.2
Million over the next three
Years, the improvements were
being considered as a requi-
site of the state's Department
of Environmental Regulation
for issuing an operating per-
mit.
The DER has been at odds
with the City for the past few
years over the amount of
suspended solids content of
the effluent sent into the Gulf
County Canal and St. Joseph
Bay and the'BOD count in the
effluent. Both limits stay right
on or slightly above or below
the limits set by DER for the
plant. The City has countered
that the limits are more


stringent than those set for
similar plants in ,the state.
One of the main corrective
items to be addressed by the
City is dredging accumulated
sludge from the bottom of the
settling lagoon at the plant,
said to be a factor in the high
suspended solids effluent.
Tuesday night, Parrish said
his firm had virtually elimi-
nated the possibility of re-cir-
culating the sludge through
"the plant; a suggestion which
had been made by the engin-
eers as a possible solution
when they first started their
work.
The engineer said the most
feasible plan now is to pump
the sludge across the Gulf
County Canal and place it in
shallow ditches for de-water-
ing. The sludge would then be
plowed into the sand.
Meanwhile, Parrish said his
firm is working with DER to


ask for a clarification of why
Port St. Joe's effluent limits
were set so high in the first
place.
Parrish said the plant is
looking at some 40 weeks of
work to get ready and pump
the sludge from the settling
pond. He said some 120 million
gallons of material must be
moved in the project.
In addition, Parrish said his
firm has inspected the inside
of the dike around the pond
while the paper mill has been
down and the pond at a low
level. He said the findings
would be analyzed and the
City advised in a short while.
Further stabilization of the
dike is one of the projects
under the improvement pro-
gram. The dike has been
tested several times and said
to be safe from collapse, but it
is still plagued with leaks in
spots, which causes the City
and DER concern.


GARBAGE
Mayor Frank Pate said the
County mosquito control de-
partment director, Doug Kent,
had contacted him with a
concern for the future of the
land-fill garbage disposal pro-
gram in the county and the.
city.
Mayor Pate said Kent was
concerned with the fact that
there is no apparent economi-
cal solution to the county's
garbage disposal program in
the south two-thirds of the
county. "The only alternative
is: to haul all trash and
garbage to a landfill in the
extreme north end of the
county", Pate said.
The Mayor said Kent is
feeling out the city 'toward
joining with the---couity4in
construction of a garbage
compaction station to prepare
garbage for hauling north to
the Buckhorn landfill site. The
compaction station would re-
duce the number of hauling


trucks and trips to the land-fill
site drastically,
Mayor Pate agreed with
City Commissioner James B.
Roberts that the county should
furnish people of Port St. Joe
the same service they provide
those people who live outside
this city. "We shouldn't have
to pay more for land fill than
people in Oak Grove, the
Beaches, White City or any-
where else", Roberts said.
"I agree' with you" Pate
said, "But we have a problem
here and I just want you to
begin thinking about a poss-
ible solution."
The Commission is now
thinking.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the City:
-Started work on a July 4
celebration to include a fire-


works display either Saturday
night, July 3, or Sunday night,
July 4.
-Tabled for two weeks a
request for a variance from H.
S. Lilius to build a carport
within five feet of the rear and


six and a half feet from the
side of his property. The
zoning code calls for 25 f: et on
the rear and 15 feet ,i: 'he
side. The matter wr.-. t.t tcdl to
investigate several verbal ob-
jections to the matter.


-Heard a report from the
Wastewater Treatment tri-
partite cost committee rec-
commending replacement of a
long 13,500 KW underground
supply cable at an estimated
cost of nearly $100,000.


Makes Deans List At Troy State


The names of Troy State
University students whose
winter quarter grades earned
them placement on the Presi-
dent's List and Dean's List
have been announced by Dr.
Edward F. Barnett, vice pre-
sident for Academic Affairs.

A total of 153 fulltime
undergraduate students were
named to the President's List,
which recognizes those earn-'
ing a 3:0 grade point average


(straight A's) on a 3.0 grading
scale. Some 155 students were
named to the Dean's List,
which recognizes those earn-
ing a grade point of 2.65 or


higher.
Named to the Dean's List
from Port St. Joe is Robert R.
Smith.

heart failure. I soon learned it
could take a lickin' and keep
on tickin'.
The first day at school, I was
pleasantly surprised to see
that I was the only one in my
room (there were four to a
room) with an alarm clock.
My pleasure, however, was
short lived. Two of my room-
mates had clock-radio alarms.
I couldn't in my wildest
picture the complexity of such
a contraption. They eventual-


ly persuaded me to let my
alarm clock run down and put
it in my closet. It not only kept
them awake at night, but they
thought it was a valuable
antique. My shame would not
let me tell them any different.
Except on extreme occa-
sions, I have never used an
alarm clock. The one my
sister gave me now sits, rust
and dust covered among my
most prized possessions; a
reminder of fonder days.


There is an old saying that
comes from the country. It is:
"If you snooze, you lose."
Better yet: "Early to bed;
early to rise, makes a man
healthy, wealthy and. wise."
Both of these sayings are very
profound, but mean absolutely
nothing to me. I just get up in
the morning without the ring-
ing of an alarm clock in my
ear.

quarter of the year. 2) In-
structs the County to pay
$4,057 to the Property Apprai-
ser budget, which Williams
contended was withheld from
her budget, and 3) the county
is not responsible for legal
fees incurred in' the action.
The County contends that
the verdict needs further
examination, claiming their
right to pass an interim
budget until tax rolls could be
prepared. The Property Ap-
praiser's budget was funded
on the basis of the temporary
budget which was passed due
to a lack of an appraisal roll,
necessary to setting budgets-
and levying taxes.
The Commission will ask the
court to consider this right and
allow the county action for the
first quarter of this year to
stand.
The Board unanimously
agreed to call on the court to
reconsider its verdict in the
suit.

propel, correct, etc."
Therefore, morality presup-
poses the unalterable reality
Sof right and wrong.
However, situation ethics
denies that there is such a
thing as RIGHT or WRONG.
Rather, situation ethics says
that all things are relative-
that what is right for one
person may be wrong for
another, and that what is
wrong at one time and place
may not be wrong at another
time and place. This philoso-
phy declares that anything
may be right in certain
situations including adultry,
rape, murder, or theft.
All laws against crime and
immorality are based on the
standards of morality accept-
ed by the society in which the
laws are made. Most civilized
societies- do- have accepted
standards of right and wrong.
Such societies make laws
(legislate) to apprehend and
punish those who do wrong.
Even though such legislation
does not eliminate crime and
immorality, they do serve as a
deterrent and offer some
protection to the members of
society.
Therefore, all laws against
crime and immorality consti-
tute .an effort to legislate
morality (Right behavior).
So, if "you can't legislate
morality", why not repeal all
laws against assault, incest,
rape, murder, robbery, theft,
treason, etc.? Actually, all
criminal legislation is based
on morality, BUT, "you can't
legislate spirituality". Now
that jells! The inward spiritu-
al nature of man is not subject
to civil and criminal laws of
the land because spirituality'is
a strictly personal and indivi-
dual matter between a man
and his God. But morality is
.a interpersonal matter in-
volving others.
Since thousands of crimi-
nals want to violate the person
or rights of others, legislation
is necessary to deter, restrain,
or punish such people. This is
legislated morality! Who can
deny it?
"You can't legislate moral-
ity"! What a farce, what
hypocracy, what a slave!
To follow this cliche to its
logical conclusion, it would be
necessary to repeal most laws
against crime and immor-
ality. This would leave .the
Nation living by the law of the
jungle. Legislation is the most
practical way to give some
degree of protection and se-
curity against those who
would run roughshod over the
person, rights, or security of
others.
The Bible tells of a time
when there was no King
(authority) in a certain land
and that every man did that
which was right in his own
eyes. No law, no authority, no
legislation! That nation had to
pay a price they could not
afford. But this is exactly
what situation ethics pro-
poses- that every person do
that which is right in his own
eyes.
"You can't legislate mor-
ality" is the golden text of
situation ethics.
So as you watch the world go
by, think through it for
yourself. Dig for the facts:
face up to the truth. When you
hear this cliche (you can't
legislate morality) remember
it for the deceitful falsehood it

The President has proposed
to cut off funding for all
waterways carrying less than
five million tons of cargo
annually. Th; ACF averages
approximately one million
tons.
Probate Judge R. H.
McSwean of Abbeyille, past
president, spoke for the three-
state association at hearings
of the House and Senate
SEnergy and Water Subcom-
mittees .on Appropriations in
Washington March 29. He was
accompanied by vice presi-
Sdent J. C. Gissendaner, Chat-
tahoochee, and executive di-
rector Addle Summers, Do-
than.
Senators Howell Heflin and
Jeremiah Denton and repre-
sentative Bill Dickinson also
spoke in behalf of the associa-
tion request.
Senator Mack Mattingly and
representatives Bill Nichols,
Jack Brinkley and Charles
Hatcher submitted written
statements. Mattingly serves
on the Senate subcommittee.
Rep. Tom Bevill of Alabama is
chairman of the House .sub-
committee.
Included in the Tri-Rivers
request was $1,268,000 for
removal of rock hazards in the
Apalachicola River. McSwean
said the Corps and the Florida
Department of Environmental
Regulation seem close to
reaching an agreement on'
removing the rock. The Corps
removed similar rock forma-
tions in the Alabama and.
Georgia portions of the water-
way in 1976.
McSwean reminded the con-
gressional subcommittees
that the ACF waterway has
never been completed to the
standard authorized by Con-
gress more than 30 years ago.
Nevertheless, he said, private
industry and state and local
government have invested $3

to $4 billion in faith that the
promised barge channel
would be provided.
"Farmers in our area have
increased their production
dramatically to supply world
markets, thereby contributing-
to America's world trade
position," McSwean said.
"Fifteen years ago, soybeants
were virtually unknown, in
Southwest Georgia, Southeast
Alabama and northwest Flori-
da. Now counties along the
waterway export' 10 to 15
million bushels of soybeans
annually, only about two mil-
lion bushels of which travel by
barge,' however, because the
low" water period falls at
harvest time. None of the
increasing volume of peanuts
.exported has moved by barge
for the same reason."
Failure to, maintain the
waterway,. McSwean said,
would close some important
industries and cause substan-
tial increases in fertilizer
prices.
Some river users who would
be adversely affected are
Continental.Carbon Company,
Mississippi Chemical -Com-
pany, Kaiser Chemical Com-
pany, Great Southern Paper
Company, Alabama Kraft,
Lapeyrouse Grain Company,
RYSCO Shipyard and Ingalls
Marine Corp.
Producers and distributors,
McSwean pointed out, would
pass their increased costs on
to consumers.

New Drunk Driver Law Has Stiff Penalties


Circuit Judge Larry Bodi-
ford told the Rotary Club last
Thursday that the new drunk-
en driver law gets the drinking
driver off the streets, but
questions which are not an-
swered or addressed in the


. -. , . ..


law may cause it to be an
unpopular and contested law.
Judge Bodiford said he felt
the law was passed more on
emotion than on content.
"Everybody agrees that the
drunk or drinking driver


should be removed from the
road, but there are problems
with this law such as who
determines the application of
the penalties involved".
Judge Bodiford was partic-
ularly concerned with the


public work requirement in
the punishment section of the
bill, as well as the failure to
determine how a defendant
will get back and forth to
alcohol abuse classes, requir-
ed as part of the punishment,
if he does not have a valid
driver license.
Judge Bodiford said that one
thing the law did was to make
it more expensive to get
caught driving while intoxi-
cated. The Judge said he could
see where getting caught and
convicted could cost a defend-
ant up to $500 in fines and
court costs on a first convic-
tion. "This stiff cost is going to
allow many people who should
be convicted to either be let go
or not convicted because of the
financial hardship of the pen-
alty", Bodiford said.
In the 28 pages of the new
law, fines are set at a
minimum of $225 on the first


offense. The court costs could
rise to $500. Other minimum
required fines are $500 for the
second offense and $1,000 for
the third. Getting caught for a
third time could result in as
much as a $2,500 fine, in
addition to the court costs.
Who will determine public
work penalties, who will ad-
minister and determine re-
sults for certain mandated
tests and other penalty facets
of the bill are questions which
Share still to be answered.
SNew members taken in by
the club last Thursday were
Charles Stevens, Rand Wort-
man andJim McNeill, Jr.




A ten gallon hat, when
filled, can actually only hold

Blimp Flies Over

The word was passed quickly throughout
town last Friday afternoon, "The Goodyear
blimp is passing over". And sure enough it


was. The blimp cruised over Port St. Joe in a
northwesterly direction at approximately
1:30, and had many craning their necks to
watch it pass.
Port St. Joe must be in the flight path of a
regular route taken by the blimp, as it is seen
several times a year enroute.

EXTENSION NOTES:


Organic, Conventional

Gardening Discussed

By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director


S Probably the most signifi-
cant differences between or-
ganic and conventional vege-
table gardening come in the
areas of fertilization and pest
control. In order to help the
average garden determine
which source will be the most
economical to use I will
compare the two types.
Organic fertilizers are na-
tuial materials which provide
.plant nutrients only after they
:decompose sufficiently. Con-
:ventional fertilizers, on the
:other hand, are prepared
S:hemically from fossil fuels.
'Andeven though these materi-
:als are readily usable by
:pliA.ts, we pay a high energy
:prfce for them.
Organic fertilizer can come


from plants and animals, and
they can come from natural
deposits of rocks and miner-
als. Rocks, sands, and shells
are usually not very easy to
obtain. But where they are
available, they make good
sources of potash, phosphorus,
calcium, and magnesium for
organic gardeners.
These natural materials are
slow in decomposing, so they
need to be added to the soil at
least three weeks ahead of
planting time.
Phosphorus is naturally
available in rock phosphate.
This material has to be dug up
from the earth, and it's a solid,
stable rock mass that gives up
its phosphorus very slowly.,
Before it can be used, rock

SSmoky Oysters Offer Easy Gourmet Treat
Spring-like.days are venturing upon us with increasing fre-

Sto make the most of beautiful spring days than by gathering
Around the barbecue grill to cook up some tasty seafood.
: Smoke cooking on the grill lends a unique flavor to foods
and adds interest for the seasoned outdoor chef. Any grill
equipment with a hood can be used. Wet hardwood chips
placed over glowing charcoal or heated ceramic tiles pro-
Sduce both the aromatic smoke and lower temperature essen-
: tial for smoking.
The Florida Department of Natural Resources notes that
Fish and shellfish are especially recommended for smoking
S because they are naturally tender, delicately flavored, and
Cook quickly. SMOKY OYSTERS SUPREME is an excellent
recipe for beginning "smokers." The procedure is simple,
but the results are simply outstanding.
S SMOKY OYSTERS SUPREME utilizes plump, juicy
S oysters cooked in the shell with a flavorful sauce. Plan for
a about 6 oysters per person, but don't be surprised if you have

phosphate must be finely
ground, and the impurities
removed. Even then, this
powdery material may be only
slightly beneficial to plants.
Rock phosphate reacts slowly
with the acid from decaying
organic matter in the garden.
You'll probably see the great-
est benefit many seasons after
you add it.
Potassium is widely distri-
buted in nature, occurring in
rocks, soil, plant and animal
tissues, and water supplies.
For the organic gardener,
materials such as wood ashes,


tobacco stems, seaweed, pot-
ash salts, and ground rock
potash, can be used alone or in
combination with other ma-
terials to yield significant
amounts of potassium to the
soil.
One of the biggest advan-
tages of using organic fertili-
zers is that they usually
contain high levels of many
other elements needed by
plants in addition to the three
major nutrients, nitrogen,
phosphorous, and potassium.
Gypsum is rich in calcium and
sulphur marl and limestone
are good sources of calcium
dolomite contains large
amounts of calcium and mag-
nese, and magnesium.
Organic materials derived
from animals and plants can
also be good sources of plant
nutrients. Fish scrap and fish
meal, urea, and bone meal can
provide significant amounts of
nitrogen. Seaweed, tobacco
stems and soybean meal can
also improve soil fertility.
The biggest disadvantages
to using organic fertilizer is
that, for the most part, they
aren't readily available and

while compounding interest daily. Ours does.


Daily compounding of interest makes Florida National's IRA

compounded every day-not annually or quarterly-so you earn
appreciably more for your retirement.

income, saving substantially on your tax return.
It doesn't take a lot to make a lot. Small regular deposits can
add up to a big retirement fund. As little as $100 a year depending
on your age, can grow into tens of thousands by retirement.
A better-than-money fund return of 15% (annual rate) through


June 30th really gets your IRA off to a great start and we otter
either a fixed or variable rate. The choice is yours.

or more (free regular checking with a $500 deposit) is another
great reason to come to Florida National. Your IRA is insured by

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 1982


Sharks Lose Twice


It was a tough week for the
Sharks last week, losing two
games before home fans by
big scores.
The Sharks could put only
four runs on the scoreboard
during the two games, while
opponents were ripping Shark
pitchers for 19 runs.
Last Thursday, the Wewa-
hitchka Gators started the
week of punching the Sharks
with an 11-3 win behind the
grand slam home run of Scotty
Gortman. In the very first
inning, the Gators put Thomas
on with a single, and Stripling
and Addison walked to load
the bases, when Gortman
stepped to the plate and ripped
a fast ball over the fence to
give the Gators a 4-0 lead
before the Sharks had ever


come to bat for the first time
in the game.
Pat Kerigan started on the
mound for the Sharks and
went three innings before he
was lifted for Jerry Filmore in
the fourth. Kerigan, who was
tabbed for Gortman's grand
slam, gave-up five hits and
three walks, recorded one
strike out and had seven runs
scored on his offerings. This
was. the most runs given up by
Kerigan in one game, all
season long.
Filmore. didn't stay very
long. The first batters he faced
walked in the fourth and Tim
Stutzman came on to finish the
game. Stutzman shut down the.
Wewa attack, giving up two
hits and two walks, allowing


two runs.
Chris Adkison doubled in the
first and scored on an Alan
Sisk single; Bo Burke singled
and scored on a Bearden
double in the second and
Burke scored on a ground out
in the seventh for the Shark
scores.
Mark Sears was the winning
pitcher for the Gators, and
Kerigan was the loser for the
Sharks.

Faith

Time goes by turns, and this
dull interim is short-lived,
barren, like a wintry dieam
That is about the end, land
burned of beauty
Renews itself in bursts of vivid
bloom, dark land with Indian
daggers in her breast,
After the writhings of a
century,
Brings forth pale flowers with
delicate perfume.

Just so, some day, God's kind
hand will erase
From our soiled lives the
ugliness and lust
Of generations, leaving in its .
place
Beauty for all the kindred of
the dust.

Oh, soul in agony, remember
how
Blackened, shorn, bedraggled
hung the bough
So full of fragrance and of
beauty now.

CARD OF THANKS
I can not and will not try to
express my thanks to each and
every one personally for the
concern that was given to the
family for the loss of our loved
one. So we hope this poem will
say it:
Perhaps you sang a lovely
song
Or sat quietly in a chair
Perhaps you sent beautiful
flowers
If so, w saw them there
Perhaps you sent or spoke
kind w ds
As any friend could say
Perhaps you were not there at
all
Just thought of us that day
Perhaps you prepared some
tasty food'
Or maybe furnished a car
Perhaps you rendered a ser-
vice unseen
Near at hand or from afar
Whatever you did to console
our hearts


PORT ST. JOE. Move your family into this 3 bdrm. home
in nice neighborhood, fenced back yd. Call today for an
appt. to see and complete information. Reasonable pric-
ed. 116 Westcott Circle.


We thank you so much,
whatever the part.
The family of W. J.
Mason:
The John Lewis'
The Mason's
The Clifford Williams'
The Higgins'


NOTE OF THANKS

Sincere thanks to all my
friends and Margaret Too-
mey's friends for your support
during my moments of crisis.
Your visits, telephone calls,
floral tributes, prayers, cards
and services offered were
greatly appreciated. May God
bless each of you.

CARD OF THANKS

The family of Ivey 'B'
Daniels wishes to express
appreciation for the food,
flowers, prayers, and many
acts of kindness during the
recent loss of our loved one.

THANK YOU LORD

I thank you Lord for every
gift-
And most of all Your love;
For your blessings of abun-:
dance,
Your treasures from above,

And when I feel so helpless
Lord,
I find relief in prayer:
With Your arm around my
shoulder, /
To show me that you care.
