MK 1Ranches Under Court Orders

Farm Operation Must Destroy
Dikes, Pumps; Restore Swamp
MK Ranches, located along the banks of
the Apalachicola River and covering some
30,000 acres in Gulf County, must give 9,000 of
its re-claimed acres back to the swamps,
according to a ruling in federal court in a
decision made late last week.
MK has been the target of state
environmental. organizations for the past
several years to return some of its re-claimed
lands back to its natural state and remove
dikes and pumps which were installed to
control flooding of lowlands each spring by
the Apalachicola River.
The owner of the ranch, J. T. Murff of
Memphis, Tenn., must spend up to $500,000 to
restore 9,071 acres back to its natural state.
According to 0. R. Stockman, local manager
for the cattle and farming operation, the
move would take about 2,500 acres of MK's
l cultivated lands out of production and return
it to its natural wetlands condition.
Returning the lands to its original state
will be jast about as expensive as clearing it
in the first place.
In the early 70's, MK moved into Gulf
County and began to clear huge sections of
former swampland, turning it into pasture
and grain crop operations. Lands which had
been impenetrable swamp for generations
suddenly became lush fields of grasses,
soybeans and later, rice.
To protect the lower lying lands along the
edge of the river from spring floods, MK
installed some 25 miles of dikes and several
pump stations, which were designed to let the
natural flow of the water out and keep the
flooding river on the river side of the dikes.
The pumps were used during flood times to
boost the natural stream water over the dike
and into the river, where it flowed naturally
for years and years, even before man came to
Gulf County. .
The Department of Environmental Regu-.
lation said a few years ago this must stop. The
pumped water was alleged to be polluting the
Apalachicola River and endangering the
oyster beds and seafood incubator properties
of Apalachicola Bay. Later the U. S. Corps of
Engineers took up the challenge and, last
week, were successful in getting the
government to order MK to move the dikes
and the pumps to allow for. the natural
flooding of the lowlands.
In its case against' MK, the Corps claimed
the diking and draining of about 10 percent of
the Apalachicola River floodplain deprived
oysters and- fish of an unknown quantity of
nutrients that normally would have flowed
Too, the Corps said the unnatural
drainage patterns also caused some wet
areas to flood more than usual and some dry
areas to dry out faster.
To MK, it meant maintaining their fields
while still allowing the natural drainage of.
wpter into the Apalachicola, with a- little help
at-times from MK's pumps.
0. R. Stockman, background, approaches thelarge pumps at MK years ago to control flooding and maintain natural water flow, must be
Ranches operation in central Gulf County. The pumps, put'in several dismantled now, on orders from the U.S. Corps of Engineers.
Stockman says the ranch has agreed to
the requirements of the courts, even before
the decision was made. Apparently, the
decision, signed last week by Federal Judge
Lynn C. Higby, was handed down as the result
of a compromise between MK and the Corps.
StocL.ian told The Star Monday the dikes
would he moved back and the pumps
relocated to continue the same type of flood
control, but the sensitive wetlands would be
taken outside the dike structure and allowed
to return to their natural state..
STATE TO PURCHASE
The State of Florida has helped with the
inconvenience such an operation could be for
MK Ranches. After the ranches spent
considerable time and money developing the
farmlands, with permission from the State of
Florida, they must un-do all they have done
for these 9,000 acres. The State is planning to
ease the pain and make sure the wetlands
remain wetlands in the future, by purchasing
the lands from MK at an appraised value of
$4.9 million. The purchase is being considered
at this time under the state's Conservation
and Recreation Lands program.
If the state did buy the land, the ranch
owners would continue restoration efforts,
which must be completed within two years
under the settlement.
Both Murff and the Corps of Engineers
agree that the solution to the problem is
MK ACTIVE IN CROPS
In the meantime, MK is a definite asset to
the economy of Gulf County, with some 700
acres of rice under cultivation, 217 acres of
peanuts on an experimental basis, 5,500 acres
of soybeans, 1,800 acres of wheat and a small
test plot of corn.
The corn crop is the crop with present
promise for MK and Gulf County grain
farming Stockman said the farms expect to
harvest some 110 bushels of corn per acre this
fall. He said the county average in the past i
has been around 60 bushels per acre
Stockman said as soon as the Ranch and
the State and the Corps of Engineers settle
their decisions about the future of the farms,
their operation could grow and more than
double its number of employees.
The Ranch operation claims they really
haven't polluted anything. They claim their
system has allowed the streams which were
already there to function as they have in the
past in as nearly a natural state as possible.
The Ranch says all they have done is manage
the floodwaters to keep them from' ruining

immediately upon hearing
that Judy had accepted my
courriered invitation, my
hands began to sweat. My
trips to the bathroom in-
creased to about fifteen times
a day. Sleep was nigh-on-to
impossible. The' recurring
thought was, "Why did I go
and do a stupid thing like
that?' My first date, I felt
certain, would be my last.
I was not surprised when the
evening was a total disaster. It
was impossible for me to talk
to or even look at, Judy. I did
manage some sports talk with:
my friend, but it was at best,
strained and artificial. Once
my hand accider*ally touched

problem I faced was a serious
shortage of financial means.

Judy only ordered a coke. For
myself, I ordered water ex-
plaining that I was a vigorous

torture. Judy refused to sit on
her side of the car. It was
apparent to me that I was not

even more. One time she even
leaned on me when we round-

sure must have been 280 over
180. I almost passed out.
Upon reaching her front
door, Judy turned and said, "I
had a wonderful time." "Me
too," I shot back over my
shoulder as I sprinted toward",
the car. Poor Judy,-poor Shad.
I was almost too embarrassed
to go to school. Fear was
written all over me.
To compound matters, I ran
into my friend the first thing
Monday morning. "I've got a
message for you," he said.
"Judy said she had a wonder-

Direct Deposit for Social Security
People in the North Florida
area who receive Social Se-
curity checks can easily ar-
range to have them deposited
directly into an account at any
financial institution, Ann R.
Kinard, Social Security field
representative, for iGulf
County, said recently.
Direct deposit can be made
to an account in a bank,
savings and loan association,
savings bank or similar insti-
tution, or Federal or State
chartered credit union.
Having checks deposited.
directly into an account has
several advantages,. Ms. Ki-
nard said. They include: The
person does not have to stand
in line to cash or deposit the
check; Money is immediately
available if the person is away
from home; No check cashing
problems; No chance of a
check being stolen.
To arrange for direct de-
posit, a person should contact
the financial institution and
ask for direct deposit form
SF-1199. Completing the form
only authorizes deposits; it
does not authorize withdraw-
als from an account.
People considering direct
deposit should ask the finan-
cial institution how it will
handle direct deposit and
whether there will be any
charge for the service.
Once a person has his or her
check deposited directly, he or
she should continue to notify
Social Security of any change

Divers Threatened by "Bends"
THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, JULY 22, 1982
Quick Thinking Averts Tragedy
What began as a perfect dive trip for four
local divers ended with one almost losing his
life, and a trip to Bay Medical Center's
recompression chamber for three of them.
On Tuesday, July 13, Herman. and Pamr
Jones,-Mike Herring, and Jerry Spurlin went
diving on the "Empire Mica", a British
. tanker torpedoed by the Germans in 1942,
twenty miles south of Cape San Bias. After
making one dive on the wreck, which is in 110
'feet of water, the group decided to make
another dive in about two hours. Due to the
depth of the water, the second dive required a
decompression stop for fifteen minutes at ten
feet at the end of the dive. The dive was going
Well until they started their ascent up the
anchor line. At about twenty feet, Mike
Herring noticed that Spurlin was out of air
and offered him his regulator to breathe
from. Since Spurlin was already semi-
conscious, he was unable to buddy breathe
with Herring or use the extra tank that was
left at the decompression level as a
precaution in case someone ran low on air.
At that time, Spurlin blacked out. Herring
then got the unconscious diver to the surface
where their trouble was noticed by' the
Joneses who were already at.the ten foot leve.
Telling his wife to stay and decompress,
Jones ,went to help Herring on the surface.,
With Herring pushing and Jones pulling from
inside the boat, they succeeded in getti.ig
Spurlin into the boat.
"I thought Jerry was a goner," Jones said
"When I got him into the boat he had already
turned blue and his eyes had rolled back- he
looked awful bad."
Spurlin said later that the jolt from getting
pulled into the boat brought him around to his
senses, and started the water emptying from
Seeing that Spurlin was breathing, Jones
and Herring decided to go back down and
decompress to keep from getting the
sometimes crippling or fatal "bends "
"The 'bends', or decompression sickness,"
Jones said, "is caused when a diver does not
properly decompress and nitrogen bubbles

Soon, a Navy helicopter arrived and
motioned Jones to follow. The copter landed
on Cape San Bias and flew Spurlin, along with
Herring to help out, to Bay Medical Center.
After a medical exam, Spurlin was put into
the chamber and recompressed to a depth of
165 feet which is the standard treatment for
gas embolism or severe decompression
sickness After listening to Herring's story of
the ordeal, the doctors decided it would be
best to decompress Jones and Herring at 60
feet since they had not properly decompres-
sed in order to aid Spurlin.
Spurlin spent a total of six hours in the
cramped chamber along with Herring and

What is this ugly creature?
Before you jump in and declare that is a stone crab or
other species of crab. let's see something about this animal
which is puzzling.
First, the crab wasn't taken from the Bay or the Gulf. It
was found by Wayne Childers behind the home of Rocky
Comforter. One of Comforter's employees at his funeral
home was starting up the steps of his home, when the crab
grabbed him by the britches leg and wouldn't turn loose. The
crab's skin is a grey-blue, it is leathery and he is ferocious.
As you can see by the photo, he is larger than a man's hand.
If you have any idea what kind of crab it is, settle some
curiosities by calling The. Star or Wayne Childers and gise

very important one for every-
one in the county.

After 56 Years of Service
, Montgomery Retiring
With a huff and a puff and a
hiss of steam, the snagboat
"Montgomery" has been flex-
ing its huge steel muscles
daily for the past 56 years,
keeping the navigable
streams of the southeast free
of snags and obstructions for
Beginning September I of
this year, the "Montgomery"
will be relieved of this duty
and her captain, Cleve Flem-
ing, is feeling kind of low
about seeing the boat he has
lived on and guided for some
20 years, placed on the inac-
The U. S. Army Corps of
Engineers say the old boat is
getting to be too expensive to
operate. Its $4,500 a day price
tag makes it a little too
expensive for the Corps to
maintain on the Apalachicola
River system in these days of
budget cutting and belt tight-
::Captain Fleming says the
operating expense doesn't
come from maintenance of the
56 year old "Montgomery".
"She's in perfect shape and is
still running on the same
engines which were put in.
when she was built", he
.The "Montgomery" was
built in 1926 in Charleston, S.-.
.C., at an original cost of
$200,232.00. Since that time,
she has served regularly on
the Alabama River system
and in the early 1950's, was
transferred to the Apalachi-
gla system, where she has
been ever since.
-.The Montgomery is 178 feet
lCng, and 34 feet, three inches
Wide. The snagboat -draws
only four feet of water to float
i 471 tons. It is powered by
two high pressure joy valve
-steam engines developing 167
horsepower per engine with
their 72 inch stroke.
' Even though the horsepower
-'sems nominal,. Captain.
. 'leming says she is a strong
old lady. "You can set down on
those wenches and pull the
boat under water", he said.
The snagboat carries a crew
of 16 men, whose jobs are now
uncertain. "Some of them will
go to the new snagboat and
some will be placed on other
jobs", Captain Fleming said.
One thing is for sure, the
crewmen on the "Montgom-
ery" like their job. All of them
are veterans on the boat, with
the "baby" crewman having
10 years of service.
"We can go home nearly
every night", Fleming said.
"Most of us live in the
Blountstown area, and no
matter where we are working
on the River, we are within
just a short ride of home and
we go except in special
instances when it is more
convenient to stay on board, or
we just can't get away at the
For those who stay on
board, it isn't exactly a
spartan existence. The boat
has spacious, clean accom-
modations, with a complete
galley and a well-stocked
pantry. "This old boat has
some age on it, but it has
tions", Captain Fleming
proudly points out.
The "Montgomery" is park-
ed at the Corps of Engineers
dock near the drawbridge at
White City. Tied up at the dock
directly behind the snagboat is
a tugboat -which is being
outfitted to tow a barge
carrying a crane which will be
used for snagging operations
on the river in the future.' .
Even though the crane on
the new barge looks formid-
able enough from general
appearance, up beside the
"Montgomery", it looks as if
someone is getting ready to go
elephant hunting with a sling-
shot, while the elephant gun
stays propped up in the living
room at home.
The new snagboat operates

ery". That's the main reason
the old boat is being retired.
The new rig has an estimated
daily operation price of $1,250,
less than half that of the
"Montgomery" It's still un-
certain as to how many crew
members will be needed on
the new boat, yet, hence the
uncertainty of the future of the
"Montgomery's" crew mem-
The future of the support
crew at the White City opera-
tion is also a little uncertain.
There are about 34 men
involved in the river mainten-
ance crew and they are all a
little anxious about the future.
The "Montgomery", and
now its successor, has respon-
sibility for maintaining a clear
channel all the way from
Apalachicola to Columbus,
Ga., on the Chattahoochee
River and to Bainbridge, Ga.,
on the Flint River.
Not only does the boat
remove snags from the river,
but it also makes repairs to
locks, docks, etc., which need
attention on the waterway.
Captain 'Fleming says the
crew works eight hours a day,
five days a week, with 90
percent of its time spent
between Apalachicola and
Chattahoochee in the Apala-
chicola River. The boat gets
active in the spring and
remains in service until late
fall, when it ties up for repdirs
in the winter months.
Captain Fleming says the
river waterway is an impor-
tant transportation link. It
said there are presently five
tugboats which travel up and
down the river system contin-
ously. "There are many more
which come over on occasion
trips, but these five boats are
at work all the time", Fleming
The future of the "Mont-
gomery" is uncertain at the
present time, but people are
busily planning a future for
the old lady which will fill her
schedule. If that's so, the
"Montgomery" will be right
at home, even though those
who have considered her
"home" for so many years
must get used to living else-
The U.S. Corps of Engineers snagboat "Montgomery"
will be placed on the inactive list in about a month, after
more than 50 years of continuous duty on the nation's
southern waterways, principally the Apalachicola River

Band Boosters and New
Director Exchange Ideas
The July meeting of the
Band of Gold Boosters was an
evening of exchanges of ideas,
information, and suggestions
for possible solutions to fund
raising projects. President
Perry McFarland welcomed
the new band director, Mr.
' Wayne Land, to the area and
pledged the support and co-
operation of his fellow officers
and members in. any areas
needed for the betterment of
the band program.
Mr. Land responded by
saying the students, parents,
school board and faculty, and
area residents he had met
made him feel this would be a
nice place to live. He believes
a positive relationship with
students and parents through
open communication will help
the individual growth of the
student and overall improve-
ment of the band unit. Sug-
gestions and ideas from sup-
porters will be welcomed, and
use of such will depend on the
capabilities of the band and
judgement of the director.
Mr. Land will be contacting
students of all band programs
concerning their membership
status for this Fall.
In closing, Mr. Land stated
he was looking forward to
presenting a well-trained,
quality band to represent the
Booster members discussed
past fund raising projects and
methods of enlisting support
from students and parents.
New uniforms and a conces-
sion stand large enough to
permanently house booster
equipment are the main 'goals
of 1982-83. An increase in
active membership is needed
if successful fund raising is to
be accomplished. Parents and
area supporters are to .be
reminded that membership in
the organization is still only
five dollars per family. With
the help of the new director, a
new slate of officers, and
complete reorganization with
the new by-laws being studied,
the boosters are looking for-
ward to an exciting year.
Mr Land and his wife, Kim,
have announced that Summer
Band Camp will begin on
August 9 and continue the
usual two weeks. Mrs. Land
has been working with the
majorettes and flags during
her husband's past seven
years as a director. She has
been the choreographer for
her groups and with 'her
training and knowledge will be
planning exciting shows to
the Sharkette's fans.
The combined efforts and
talents and hard work of the
director, sponsors, and stu-
dents should give Port St. Joe
a Band of Gold to view with
pride. If you would like to
extend a welcome to the Land
family, or need band informa-
tion, please call 229-6262.

Take Shelter When A
If a hurricane forces you
into a public shelter, remain
there until informed by those
in charge that it is safe to
return to your home.
Keep tuned to your local
radio or television station for
advice and instructions from
local government about emer-
gency medical, food, housing,
and other forms of assistance.
Do r not drive unless' you
must. Debris-filled streets are
dangerous .and roads should
be left clear for emergency
vehicles. In addition, your
presence in disaster areas
might interfere with essential
rescue and recovery work.
Along the coast, soil may be
washed from beneath the
pavement, which could col-
lapse under the weight of a

wires, and report them im-a
mediately to your power com-
pany, local police, or fire
department. Report any bro-
ken sewer or water mains to
the. water department. Be
particularly careful to prevent
fires as lowered water pres- (
.sure may make fire fighting
. Hurricanes moving inlan,..
,can cause severe flooding.
Stay away from river banks
and streams until all potential
flooding is past.
Be suspicious of water
which may have been con-
taminated. If the power has
been off, check refrigerated
food for spoilage. A freezer
should keep food in satisfac-
tory condition up to 36 hours,
provided it is kept closed.
Wrapping the freezer in blank-
,ets will help insulate the cold.
Discuss this series of ar-
ticles with your children.
Explain your family's plans
and preparations. Share your
ideas with friends, neighbors,
and relatives. Hurricane pre-
paredness is a job for every-
one in the community.
