LETTERS TO THE EDITOR...
Four or five years ago the
federal Government again of-
Sfered the same forty (40) acre
tract of land located at Beacon
Hill to the Gulf County Com-
mission who again promptly
appointed another committee,
of -which I was not a member,
to formulate another plan for
the "public use" of this
property! Since that time I
have made periodic inquiries
to the Gulf County Commis-
sioners and to Billy Joe Rish,
County Attorney, as to the
status of this property.
Recently I have read in a
newspaper that the Federal
Government is now going to

As the week wound down the crowd

population increased by at :least 25
percent in Port St. Joe for, a short time.
During that week, the grocery bill
soared along- with the temperature,-
which also caused the electric bill to

western high country dwellers reason-

kept us cool, too. The westerners took
us up a mountain to walk in the snow

HARDLY ANYONE SAID a word
about the fact they received three
four-page sections in the paper two
weeks ago. That isn't the normal thing
with this wonderful newspaper. You
usually get your paper in eight-page
sections or less. But not four pages less,
as a rule.
The reason for all that wealth of
sections was because half of our
newspaper press was out of service that
week. About a month ago, a bubble'
erupted on the bottom left hand corner
, of.the section which prints page six.
Since this is normally a hard, dirty job:
to change a blanket, Willie put it off just
as long as he could.
Two weeks ago, he decided onei
Monday morning to change the offend-
ing blanket. Before. he could get the
blanket clamp undone, it was time to,
print the paper, so he had to go ahead
and print it in four-page 'sections and
put them together by hand.
It finally took a 30-ton press to get.
the clamp loose, after the press section
was dismantled and the tubular unit
which contained the blanket and the
stuck clamp, were removed from the
press. The thing was truly stuck.
Things have all been re-newed,
lubricated, re-adjusted, cleaned up,
and replaced now and both units are
clicking merrily along as they should.
The only lesson we learned out of
the operation was never to start
another blanket change on Monday.
They will, in the future, be started on
Thursday, to allow for plenty of time for
repairs if we happen to run across
another stuck clamp.

Check Your Car Before Taking A rip
Despite higher fuel prices,
the automobile is expected to
remain the most popular
means of transportation for
the American family on vaca-
tion in 1982 said the Florida
Highway Patrol recently,
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol director said, "Before you
go on vacation this summer,
S -sure to have your vehicle
serviced and checked: tires,
-Ikes, exhaust system, fan
~fets,. fluid levels; battery,
hoses, fuel line, lights, wind-
shield wipers and safety
He continued, "Pack a tool
kit, flashlight with fresh bat-
teries, pliers, a screwdriver,
electrical tape for fixing wir-
ing and hoses temporarily,
battery jumper cables, a fire
extinguisher, flares and day-
light reflectors. Make sure the
jack is in working order. Also
have a good first aid kit. Being
ready for an emergency is half
. the battle."
Other tips include keeping
your safety belt buckled and
put infants in proper restraint
devices. Obey the 55 mph
speed limit. Fuel efficiency is
from ten to 30 percent better
at 55 mph'than at 70 mph and
tests show that in a collision,
the chances of getting killed
are doubled with each ten
mires of speed over 55 mph.

tired or sleepy. Don't try tc

Insured savings and loan
institutions are now allowed to
redeem food stamps from
authorized retailers and
wholesalers in the same man-
ner as banks have in the past,
according to Ms. Cherie Mor-
ris, Southeast regional di-.
rector of the food stamp and
other family nutrition pro-
Ms. Morris said the provi-
sion was authorized by an
amendment to the Food
Stamp Act and is effective
immediately. Prior to the"
amendment, only banks were
permitted to redeem food
stamps from authorized re-
tailers and wholesalers.
She added that the amend-
ment requires that financial
institutions accepting food
stamps for redemption must
be insured by the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corpora-
tion (FDIC)or the Federal
Savings and Loan Insurance
For more information on the
new provision, Ms. Morris
suggested calling the nearest

too far in one day. If you leave
the load before dark, it will be
easier to find food and ac-
comodations. Drive defensive-
ly. Expect the other driver to
make mistakes and be pre-
pared to react quickly. Antici-
pate when you must speed up
or slow down by keeping
plenty of room between you
and the car ahead. It will save
wear and tear on the brakes
and save fuel.
Colonel Beach concluded by
adding an extra word of
caution for small car drivers,
"Occupants of smaller cars
are eight times more likely to
be injured than the passengers
of larger cars in a crash. The
mix of different sizes of
vehicles on the road makes it
wise for the driver of a small
car to be especially alert.

months. He advises gardeners
to first rake and till the soil
until the dirt is smooth, f
without clods or fresh root'
fragments. Then, water it
well, because water will help
conduct the heat. Cover the
garden area with a clear
plastic tarpaulin, and seal the
edges of the plastic into the
earth with soil. If the cover is
left undisturbed for four
weeks or more, temperatures
in the soil will reach over 120 -
degrees to about one foot deep.
