PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 1982
Expected to Approve $30 Million Loan Today
The Port St. Joe Port Authority will, in
all likelihood, approve an agreement to
approve the sale of $30,000,000 in revenue
notes today for financing construction of a
new port facility here in St. Joseph's Bay.
Unless all the pens in Gulf County run
dry this morning and unless every member
of the Port Authority breaks both arms
before dawn today, the documents will be
"We've been waiting nearly four years
for this moment", Port Authority chairman
George Tapper said. As a matter of fact, the
Port Authority has been building up to
the moment of signing longer than..the
duration -of the note issue.
The $30 million issue will be for a term
of three years, to get the port designed and
built and then converted to a long term issue
so port revenues can handle the repayment
of the notes.
The notes to be approved today are for a
three year term at 10 percent interest. The
interest yield is tax-free, making the issue
attractive to investors.

tangible security at the present time, they

ed the issue of the notes a special called

PORT WORK PROCEEDING
Even though the Port Authority is just
now getting-their hands on enough money to
proceed with the port project, financially,
work has still been progressing since the
first of the year.

planning and construction.
available by St. Joe Paper Company in the
fall of last year, the Port Authority has work
going on already for the new port.
According to Tapper, a feasibility study
is already underway, being conducted by
the Harris Company, one of the largest port
designers in the nation. Design work is also
going on by the Wayne Coloney Company.
All of this was started in March of this year
and is expected to take most of the.year to
complete. "We expect to 'have some work
going on by the end of the year", Tapper
Before that can happen, the Port
Authority still has to get permitting and
engineering out of the way.
The new issue of notes is expected to be
self sustaining within just a couple of
months. The Port Authority plans to invest
the money once the notes are approved and
expect to earn around 14 percent on the
"We- can do a lot of planning,
engineering and some construction on that
interest earned", Tapper said. "We'll have
up to $100,000 a month available in interest
for the next six months and that will cover a
lot of the ground we have to cover in that
time", he pointed out.
Port Authority members George
Tapper, Laura Geddie and their attor-
ney, William J. Rish, were in New York
City Tuesday and Wednesday to sign the
numerous notes i issue. Geddie and :
Rish were to return home Wednesday
afternoon and Tapper remained in New ,
York. After the Port Authority meets
today and officially approves theissue,
he is to be called by the Port Authority h
advising him of their approval. Tapper r
will then put his official signature of
approval to the issue as chairman of the
Port Authority. ::
When you consider the Port Authority
has no taxing power, owns no real estate,.
has no assets and no property, they have
done an unusual and miraculous job in:
borrowing $30,000,000, mostly on their word,
that it will be repaid.

recreation boaters who use the
area are complaining that the
commercials are taking over
the facility and pose a possible
threat if not a danger to them.
Tuesday night, one of the
commercial shrimp boat own-
ers, Bill Herring, came before
the Commission to state their
position. Herring said the ones

tying up have no other place to
Herring said, "I normally
operate out of Indian Pass and
Apalachicola, but there are no
shrimp there right now, and
we're .working in Port St.
Herring pointed out that the
small independent shrimpers
like himself, cannot afford
high dockage fees, nor can
they afford to sell to some of
the established wholesale sea-
food dealers'who control much
of the dockage in the area.
."We would go broke on these
terms", Herring said.
While Herring didn't speci-
fically say so, he intimated the
commercial boats would not
be here for much more than a
additional week or two, "until
the shrimp Ahow up in Apala-

would be moving on.
Mayor Frank Pate explain-

sion to Herring, when he said,
"We came up here tonight
with the intention of instruct-
ing our attorney to prepare us
an ordinance prohibiting comrn-
mercialboats from tying up at
the Fifth Street boat slip. So
far, I have heard no objections
to these plans from the other
members of the Board." Pate
went on to say the only reason
the proposed ordinance wasn't

was because the Board's

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR...
Feels Proposed Ordinance Infringes
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
We would like to comment,
on the morality ordinance that
has recently been proposed for
Gulf County. We feel that it is
wrong for people of authority
to have the power to impose
the very morals of the indivi-
dual. We personally think
topless dancing and nudity is
improper for' public places,
but if we do not want to go to
those places we do not have to.
It is not forced upon us. We
have no right to force our
morals on others, or to take
away others' rights to do as
they please as long as they
hurt no one else. No one has
the right to restrict or impose
morals upon society. It is
totally undemocratic. Ameri-
ca is suppose to be based on
freedom and, the rights of
everyone. So, see this i
about alot more the
ordinance its self. Ir
morals is the begin
communism. If peo
authority are allowed
tate our morals to us
time goes on they will
to control even more personal
things; Our opinions, our likes
and dislikes, and even our
friends and enemies. Morals
are not for the government to
decide upon. Morals belong to
the individual, and the indivi-
dual should be granted the
right to decide his or her own
s really morals. Who is the govern-
an the ment to say what is good or
posing bad morals?

A MAN'S WORLD
S* By Shad Phantry
We have three problems
concerning pets. I should say
pet, because the only pet we
have is a dog and the problems,
center around him. The other
two problems are a direct'
result of the main problem
that started with "Rooter." |
Rooter would not eat dog,
food. That is, he wouldn't eat
dry dog food. The canned,
meat type, he would eat, can
and all. It was just that I
couldn't afford three cans a
meal at 80 cents a can. I don't
eat that well myself...
I decided to solve this, the
main problem. My plan was
simple. I would mix table
scraps (he likes these) with
dry dog food and warm water.
so it would mix well, and
gradually reduce the table
scraps until Rooter was on 100
percent dry dog food. The plan
was simple and basic and was
working.- well. Then along
came problem Number Two.
As you probably know, we,
here in Port St. Joe, live in a
bird sanctuary. Normally,
birds are no problem, but
during the spring when there
is an abundance of our fine
feathered friends (and hung-
ry too), they can become a bit
of a problem. When you are
trying to wean your dog from
gourmet type food to dry dog
food, the birds can become a
real serious problem.
At first there were only a
few and Rooter would protec-
tively chase them away. It
wasn't long, however, until
tweet-tweet spread and the
dog pen was literally covered
with birds. The trees sur-
rounding our house were
turned into a bird restaurant
waiting line. Still, I was able to
continue the dog weening
process to a measure of
success. Rooter will now eat
dry dog food if it will survive
in the dish long enough. This
second problem has created
the third problem for which I
have no solution and des-
perately heed help on.
Because. of the continuous
access to dog food, birds have
seized our home.-They are on
the fence, in trees, on top of
the house, car and sometimes
surround our back door await-
ing Rooter's feeding time.
This is still no major catas-
trophy. The real problem is at
night. These birds have been
here so long eating dog food
that we can't sleep for them.
They sit around outside our
house and keep us awake
barking at one another. Can
anyone help us?

ties, students will receive
green information sheets that

Friday, April 23, the low
income energy assistance'
heating and cooling program

Applications received to
date are. much lower than
anticipated for this area. The
State estimates that 500,000
Florida households and more
than one million people are
eligible for energy assistance.
The program this year is a
combined heating and cooling
assistance program.. Appli-
cants do not need a doctor's
statement to qualify. This one
time payment to- help with
energy cost will not affect any
type of assistance already
received such as SSI, Social
Security, Food Stamps, Veter-
ans' Benefits, School grants,
Eligibility depends, on
family size and monthly in-
come levels. The income level
is higher this year, meaning
some applicants that where
denied last year are now
eligible this year.

224A Reid Avenue. In Wewa-
hitchka, apply at the Old
Courthouse. All applications
must be in the offices or post

documentary that says over
and over again that God keeps
and honors His Word. Nar-
rated by much loved man of
God, Dr. Grady Wilson of the
Billy Graham team, and pro-
duced by Earl Miller, creator
of the highly successful film
series, "Focus on the Fami-

God promised to return His
people, Israel,. to their home-

after World War II. He further
promised a permanent home

alike, who would accept His
Son, Jesus Christ, as their only

also makes it easier to culti-
