County Schools to Resiume Classes Monday Morning


Classes for the 1982-83 school term will begin
Monday morning; when pupils report to school at
8:10 a.m., local time. No surprises are in store for
either pupils or teachers, according to Superin-
tendent of Schools, Walter Wilder.
Wilder said the system expects to have around
2,400 pupils throughout the county this. year,
reflecting "a very slight" decrease in school
population. Wilder said the system may have no
decrease at all and insists that if there are any less
students than last year, the difference will be
very, very slight. "Our annual reduction of
student load is over for a few years, it appears",
he said. The Superintendent said that for the past
few years, Gulf County has had the third largest
annual decline in student population of any county
in the state.


There will be 10 less teachers in the system
this year, and they will be getting more money, if a
contract, agreed to by negotiators Tuesday
afternoon, is ratified by the teachers Friday and
by the School Board early next week, as it is
expected to be. Gulf County has reduced the
teacher population due to the continually eroding
student population over the past few years. "We
have 10 less teachers starting this new ynar",
Wilder said. The situation for Gulf County is not
unique for counties in Florida. Reduction of
teacher population this year is the normal rather
than the abnormal situation throughout the state..
Here in Gulf County, most of the teacher reduction
was realized by teacher attrition from last year.
The remainder were obtained by failure to re-new
a few annual contracts.


The only class which has been dropped this
year is the building trades class here in Port St.
Joe. All other classes will be offered just as they
were last year. "The participation in the class
dropped off to the point where we had to drop it",
Wilder said.
TEACHER CONTRACT
While the pupils may feel a little anguish over
their summer vacation coming to an end, the
teachers seem to be a content lot, after reaching
tentative agreement with the School Board's
negotiators for a wage contract Tuesday after-
noon. The two sides have. been right on the edge of
reaching agreement for several days, but finally
hammered out their remaining differences
Tuesday and arrived at a ;package both sides


agreed could be presented to their people in good
faith.
The new wage package, which will apply for
one year only, agrees to about a 14. percent
increase for the teachers. Last year, the School
Board, strapped for cash, reached agreement with
the teachers with a $700 across the board pay
increase and a promise for at least a 10 percent
increase this year.
Both Temple Watson, School Board negotiator
and Winston Wells, teacher negotiator, felt
confident their groups would agree to the package.
Under the proposed agreement, teacher pay
increases will range from $1,700 to $2,300 per year.
Starting teachers with a bachelor's degree will.
receive $12,400 from Gulf County. The maximum


salary for a teacher with a bachelor salary and
longevity will be $18,000. A teacher with a master's
degree will start at/$13,800, with a top salary of
$19,400.
Last year, the starting salary in Gulf County
was $10,600.
There were only two other questions to be
approached in the negotiation sessions. One of
these, pay for supplemental work was agreed on
with a range from a low of $266 to a high of $1,331,,
depending on the extra activity expected of the
teacher. The other question had to do with
entering some new state regulations into the local
agreement which had to do with the method of
periodically checking a teacher for evaluation of
abilities and effectiveness.

Tetatve ,Budget Reduces Taxes


Port St. Joe City Commissioners
have tentatively approved a new
budget which will reduce taxes
collected in the city and increase
expenditures over last year. The
budget is in balance, with expendi-
tures equalling or .under estimated
receipts...
Using a special one time contribu-
tion of sales tax. revenue from the
State of Florida, Port St. Joe has
applied $37,459 to its budget to reduce


tax income by that amount. Tax
payers will be asked to pay a total of
387,712 this year as opposed to $406,873
last year.
The millage rate for the City has
tentatively been reduced from 4.7 for
last year to 3.846 for the coming year.
The new budget is a conservative
effort, containing very little in the
way of capital outlay expenditures
and a 10 percent pay increase for city
employees.


Most of the increases in the new
budget are to finance projects which
must be undertaken to repair or
renovate certain City facilities. For
instance, there is a $2.5 million item in
the budget to do certain renovations to
the Wastewater Treatment Plant
which are being required by Florida's
Department of Environmental Regu-
lation. Most of the work will be paid
for'with interest earned from escrow
and construction accounts maintained


Flood Insurance Subsidies


While the average man in
the street in Gulf County was
trying to figure out how the
announced tax increase by
President Reagan will affect
him personally, another seg-
ment of the population here in
Gulf County was receiving the
unhappy news that they might
further be a "victim to the
Reagonomics syndrome.


Property owners of Cape
San Blas and other barrier
islands in Florida and along
,the Gulf Coast, learned the
government was seriously
considering cutting out the
subsidies for their flood insur-
ance coverage, now required
by law. on all structures which
are financed by government
insured institutions. The with-


drawal of the subsidy would
serve to make the flood
insurance premium much
higher for the property owner.,
Now,' with government subsi-
dies, everyone receiving flood
insurance pays the same
premium for a certain insur-
ance rating.

Governor Bob Graham


Makes Flying Visit Here


Governor Bob Graham whisked into
town last Friday and whisked right out
again after a little more than an hour of
touring Raffield Fisheries and boat
building operation.
The Governor arrived by air at the
Apalachicola Airport about 1:45 Friday
and was brought by car to Port St. Joe
where he witnessed the unloading of a
large cargo of fish by the firm, the
handling of the product and packing for
freezing. The Governor was also intrigued
with the boat building operation here
which is producing a new concept of
fishing boats designed to be multi-purpose
and fuel saving,.
While Gene Raffield, manager of the


Raffield enterprise, had Governor Gra-
ham in his office, he used the opportunity
to promote the proposed port facilities for.
Port St. Joe and point out its need to Port
St. Joe, Gulf County, the State of Florida
and the entire southeast. Raffield enlisted
the Governor's help in bringing the port to
a reality.
In commenting briefly on his visit,
Governor Graham was pleased that
someone was making use of formerly
under-utilized sea products and providing
them as food for those who had no food.
Graham had high priase for the local firm
and its inventiveness in making use of a
former discarded important source of
protein.


Objections Minimal



Trim Notices Received


Gulf County was flooded
over the week end with the
annual TRIM notices which
gave tax payers a peek at
what they could be expected to
pay this year to the tax
collector.
Mailed out last Friday by
the Property Appraiser for the
Gulf County Commission, the
notices had a wealth of
information for the property
owner, including what his or
her property had been assess-


ed at for taxing purposes and
what the different taxing
bodies of the county had
decided to tax that particular
property.
Comparisons were included
to show any increases or
reductions in valuations or
taxes levied the previous year
allowing comparisons to be
made with the proposed cur-
rent year.
Property Appraiser Joyce
Williams told The Star yester-


day there had been very few
complaints from the figures
shown on the notices. "Last
year, I was here late every
night, but this year I have
gone home at 5:00 like I'm
supposed to thus far", Mrs.
Williams said.
It's still early. Property
owners still have until Sep-
tember 7 to file any griev-
ances they might have on the
notices, but indications are

County Commissioner Eldridge
Money didn't realize it last week at
the County Commission meeting,'
but he was giving a succinct preview
of what one of the vote outcomes
would be in the September pri-
maries.
SCommissioner Money remarke-
Sed, in an off-handed way at the
S Commission meeting last Tuesday
Morning, "Is it too late to remove
S the proposal from the ballot asking if
people of the county wish to have the
entire county declared a Central
Time zone? I have had a lot of people
S:come to me who are opposed to
S that."
As the conversation went on
over Commissioner Money's ques-
tion, it was learned that his
:description of the "lot of people"
who had objected to the proposal
.was expanded into a "flock of
S peoplee, meaning there was more
Than just one or two who were
opposed to Gulf County being placed
Sin the Central Time zone.
As we all know, Gulf County now
struggles with the inconvenience of
:I having the south half of the county in
Sthe Eastern time zone, while the
northern half is in the Central zone.
, : At times this is inconvenient, but
Z the fact remains, whether or not it is


By Law or C

A question almost as volatile as
-the time zone question these days, is
.the question of using drags to
'harvest scallops in St. Joseph Bay.
- zEven those who are not partic-
iularly conservationists are attack-
ding the drags and some of those who
normally get billious at the thought
,of acid rain. from as-. far away as
-Europe raising theppH level in our
streams are using their drags every
'day.
People don't get up very tight,
Very often, as long as you are just
,talking about their money. But,
whenn you go to messing with their
wife, their bird dog, outboard motor,
shotgun, or taking any sort of
seafood from the bay, you are
treading on dangerous ground.
Only recently, the question of
allowing property owners at Indian
Pass to raise a small patch of:
Oysters in the lagoon behind their
homes and declaring the 100 square
feet or so off limits to those
gathering oysters, raised an objec-
tion such as "Ban the Bomb" could
have used to good advantage.
SThose who journey into the bay
on week ends say the drags not only
are eradicating all the scallops by
taking everything there, but they
are also destroying the grass crop in


IIIAL'(AfI


inconvenient, those people who live
in the Central zone, like it and
likewise, those who live in the
Eastern zone like their situation,
too.
If you didn't know about this
question on our September ballot,
asking if all the county should be in
the Central zone, don't be alarmed.
Regardless of how, the outcome is,
Gulf County is not about to be placed
in one time zone. It's true, the entire
county is situated in the Central
zone, but a long time ago, the
decision was made to place south
Gulf County in the Eastern zone, and
we don't see it changing, unless the
people change.
The question on the ballot was-
merely a straw ballot. It was merely"
an opinion sampler. Since we don't
have a "Harris Poll" in Gulf County'
to sample your opinion, that was the
way of doing it.
You have already answered the
straw ballot "opinion poll", accord-
ing to Commissioner Money. You
have already said all of Gulf County
will not be placed in the Central time
zone,, if you have your druthers.
Asking for your druthers was the
reason for the straw ballot in the
first place.


common Sense

the bay, which supports a multitude
of sea animal life besides scallops.
There are the mullet, the shrimp and
all types of fish which spawn, feed
and live in the shallows where the
scallops are found.
If we had a guess to make, we
would guess that the County Com-
mission will go along with those whIoI
wish the bay to be closed to drags the
year round. Currently, the drags are
outlawed from the first of April to
August 1.
Presently, the "no drag" law,
when it is in effect, is a hard task to
enforce, according to the Marine
Patrol people. It might be a little
easier to enforce if the ban law is in
effect at all times, but it will still be
tough.
Whatever it takes, whether it is
by law or common sense, we hope
the scallops can be afflicted with an
adequate conservation measure to
ensure their reasonable harvest by
those who wish to pick up a
bucket-ful from now on. Notice we
didn't say "preserved". That sounds
too much like placing- them in a
hermetically sealed jar and putting
them on the shelf until a rainy day
comes long. We're not for that with
any of our natural resources.


I was a bachelor up until the
day I was married. Honest, I
was! And I'll tell you some-
thing else, it wasn't all that
bad. Looking back I can see
where I made a lot of
mistakes, the worst of which
was asking that girl to marry,
me. Dad gummit! She said yes
and held my feet to the fire
and here I am now wondering
if I'll be able to play golf this
weekend.
The life of the bachelor is a
fun life. It can also be a very
frustrating time in a man's
life. If a man is easily swayed
by peer pressure, his life can
become a living death. But
more about tffe frustration
later. Let3 talk about the fun
times.


School

BUSs to Hit

The Road
Traffic on Florida's streets
and highways will soon be
increasing with the reappear-
ance of school buses with their
"priceless cargo" reminded
the Florida .Highway Patrol
this week.
"School buses stopping to
load and unload children will
cause additional congestion
and stopping for a school bus
will cause drivers to lose a
little time," said Lt. Colonel
Roger Collar, acting director
of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol. "However, the lives of
our youngsters are worth
more than time and this rule is
designed to protect their lives
while they are traveling to and
from school."
School buses in Florida in
1980 were involved in 1,227
accidents, seven of which'
'were fatal accidents, and 392
j'er~rabnl injury accidents: . '
Florida's school buses have
both red and yellow signal
lights on the front and rear to
warn other drivers. Yellow
flashing lights indicate that
the bus is slowing down and
ied flashing lights with the red
arm extended from the bus is
the signal for other vehicles to
stop while school children load
or unload.
When a school bus displays
a stop signal while loading or
unloading, Florida law re-
quires all drivers going in.the
same direction as the bus to
stop. Traffic moving in ithe
opposite direction must stop
unless the highway is divided
with an unpaved space at last
five feet wide or a physical
barrier.
"Drivers should view school
buses the same as they would
a caution sign and reduce u
speed when meeting or oifer-
taking a school bus in order to
be prepared to stop at any
time," concluded Collar. i

Most of you will remember
how it was. It was not a
different girl every night-
who could afford to date every
night? Maybe it was two or
three different ones a week.
Yeah, that sounds just about
right. That way you could be
mildly serious, but do a quick
disappearing act if the "Big-
gie" subject came up. The
"biggie" being matrimony.
Variety is the spice of the
pizza for the bachelor. It


affords him the right to call or
not to call; to be busy or
available at any particular
time, or to be nasty or nice in a
given situation. Unfortunately
for him, the girls have the
same rights. It's just that
most of the time they won't
strike like the bachelor male
will. Well, that's the way it
used to be. It's not my fault the
Women have taken over the
world of bachelordom. They
have always had control of the


marriage kingdom.
Wine, women and song. The
creed of the bachelor soon
turns to bills, babies and work.
The transition is not sudden,
but begins when he sees that
special girl or when she sees
that available bachelor and
decides she is going in for the
kill. When this happens, his
days are numbered. His life of
freedom, different girls, sleep-
ing late and eating pork-n-
beans for breakfast are over.
He must start aligning himself
to the life of the. average or
common folks. No more fun
'til two in the morning. No
more weekends trotting the
beaches. It's bacon for break-
fast, bologna for lunch and
.fried porkchops for supper-
and.a lot of hard work in
between.
I would not last one year as


a bachelor. There are far too.
many beautiful women around
and more it seems every day.
The old adage, "It ain't like it
used to be," seems more
fitting with each passing day:
There's a story about the
gangster car that dumped the
unconscious, nude and beauti-
ful body of a young lady on a
sidewalk in New York. A
crowd soon gathered and
among them was a priest and
a drunk. The priest, to protect
the vanity of the girl spoke
saying, "Those who looketh
upon the body of this woman
shall be struck blind." Where-
upon, the drunk raised his left
hand to cover his left eye and
continuing to stare said, "I'll
risk one eye."
Maybe I couldn't last one
year as a bachelor, but could I
try it for just six months?


GOVERNOR BOB GRAHAM flew
into the area last Friday afternoon and
paid a visit to Raffield Fisheries'
operation with an on-site inspection of
processing a catch of fish and two large
S fishing boats under construction in the
boat building operation.
As if it had been planned for the
Governor's visit, the Raffield fleet's
new "Fisherman's Pride" had landed
itat Ilay and was in the process of
imloading some 175,000 pounds of fish -
give or take a few pounds.
I The plant was a-buzz with activity
for the Governor's walk-through visit,
with a conveyor belt churning the fish
up out of the bowels of the boat into the
processing shed for packing and
freezing for future shipment. It may
have just seemed so from the long wait
of standing around waiting, but it
seemed to me as if he was there at least
an hour, along with a sizeable following
from the Gulf County, Mexico Beach
area, along to bend the Governor's ear
about this or that.

Highland View bridge to stick in the up
position while the Governor was at
Raffield's, but the darn thing is so
unpredictable, it wouldn't even stick
when you wanted it to ... just like it


sticks when you don't want it to.
Since the Governor came by plane,
which landed at Apalachicola and was
on a schedule, a timely sticking of the
bridge in an upright position would
have done a good job of underlining
what we have been telling the DOT for a
long time, now. Were the Governor to
get his schedule all fouled up by the
Highland View bridge, like a lot of the
rest of us have had happen, the day for


replacing that worn out bucket of bo0ts
might just have been hastened an hour
or two.

fish operation of Raffield's and its
potential to help out the world hunger
situation: That particular day, the
catch was Pogey fish, but they were
still being hauled into the plant and
prepared for processing into food, pet
food, fertilizer or what have you. The
only thing which was being wasted
about the Pogey was its smell. As the
fish were being vacuumed off the boat


breaths from the refrigerated innards
of the boat would belch over the docks
where the by-standers were taking in
all the action.
Most of those standing around,
watching the operation or who were
there just because the Governor of the
State of Florida was there, acted as if
there wasn't a thing out of place. One
gets that Pogey odor in everyday life,
you know.


It was there, in puffs and snatches
and if Ihad'a weak stomach, I would
have had to leave after a while.
Not saying it was bad, you
understand; it was just a little more

GOVERNOR BOB HAS A propen-
sity for getting in a work day here and
there. All the press will gather around,.
with their cameras grinding, the tape
recorders going full blast and the sweat
rolling. I know it wasn't from choice,
but I 'don't believe the Governor is
accustomed to sweating very much and
on these work days he gets a chance to
give those sweat glands of his a work
out. As I say, it isn't his fault. He
doesn't normally do your average
sweat-producing work and it is my
understanding he has never had to.
Still, on occasion, he volunteers and
does things which raise an honest
sweat. He calls it getting to understand
the people and what they go through to
earn a living. He's admitting he doesn't
do these things and he wants to know
what it feels like. I admire that. Like


the old Indian said, "Don't criticize
anyone until you have walked a mile in
his moccasins". The Governor puts on
other people's moccasins to find out
their problems.
I noticed last Friday, that while the
Governor seemed interested in the fish
packing operation, as he toured the
"Fisherman's Pride" where it was tied
up to the dock unloading; while he
shook hands and went up a shaky
scaffold to board a fiberglass boat hull
which was under construction in the
boat building operation; while he
peered into the hold of the "Fisher-
man's Pride, so loaded with fish the
boat was at a list from having its cargo
pumped from one side. While he did all
this, I. noticed one thing.
The Governor didn't jump in the
hold and help with the unloading; he
didn't help put the fish in the box or
wire them shut, or lug them to the fork
lift, or grind off any of the poured
fiberglass, or carry a laminated beam
on board the boat being built.
But then, last Friday wasn't a work
day; it was a visiting day, and he
visited and was well received.

Library Board


Plans Book Sale


The Gulf County Library
Advisory Board met on Mon-
day, July 19, at 4 p.m. in the
meeting room of the Gibson
Memorial Library in Port St.
Joe.
Nolan Treglon, chairman,
called the meeting to order.
The main topic of discussion
was that of funding and
budgeting. Cutbacks in library
services will be necessary
unless additional sources of
income are found. It was
suggested that the City of
Wewahitchka be contacted
about including the library in
their budget so that their
branch could be open more
hours. Several area service
clubs have been contacted
about donations for the pur-
chase of books. A used book
sale was suggested and plans

:Announce


are being made for such a sale
in October. Area citizens who
would like to contribute books
to the sale are asked to bring
them to the library.
It was decided that each
member of the Board write an
informative article about the
services of the two libraries
for publication in our local
papers. A special meeting to
make final plans for the
October Book Sale is sche-
duled for the third Monday in
September.

Hurricane List
. , . ... . . ,


: t has been 10 years since this area has
really felt the impact of a hurricane.
Florida Power estimates that at least
one-half :of its 825,000 customers have
never experienced the fury of a hurricane.
If this area is threatened by a hurricane,
there are certain things that can be done to
avoid personal danger and property
damage. To help people in their area
prepare for the storm quickly and
efficiently, Florida Power has developed a


hurricane checklist for handy reference.
As the height of hurricane season
rapidly approaches, you are encouraged to
pick up a copy at the FPC local district
office.
The checklist is easily identifiable,
waterproof, tearproof, and has a self-
adhesive backing. It can be placed on the
inside of kitchen cabinet doors, medicine
.cabinets, or near a telephone. It is free.


List of Chores fo


A:ugust Garens


BY Dr. Robert J. Black
August is a rough month for
gardening in Florida. It's too
late to plant many summer
flowers and too early for
winter varieties. And further-
more, it's just too darn hot to
Spend all day slaving in the
Syard. But don't despair, there
are plenty of easy jobs left to
do. Here's a potpourri of
easy-to-do garden chores.
Roses grow quite large in
South Florida and a late
August pruning is recom-
mended. Remove healthy top
growth as well as twigs and
branches that are dead, di-
seased, injured, unsightly or
thin and spindly. Shorten main
canes and lateral branches
removing small twigs and
some of the oldest canes.
Leave at least half the length
of each main cane that is one
to three years old. The first
flowers can be expected eight
to nine weeks after pruning.
If you're growing mums or
poinsettias for winter color,
this is the last month you
should pinch these plants to
increase blooms. Pinching
back the stem tips will pro-
mote heavier flowering be-
cause of increased branching
But, if you wait too' late,
pinching will remove flower
buds and thus reduce flowers
this fall.
It's also about time to begin
disbudding camellias to in-
crease flower size. As soon as
you can distinguish the round-
ed flower buds from the
pointed vegetative bud, twist
off all but one of the flower
buds at each fip. Be careful
not to injure the remaining
bud which should develop into
a larger flower. Sasanquas
and japonicas which are priz-


ed for multi blooms, need not
be pinched.
Common ornamentals like
oleander, hydrangeas and
azaleas can be propagated by
cuttings this time of year. For
azaleas, take tip cuttings
three to five inches long with
several leaves left attached.
Many rooting mediums can be
used such as sand or a mixture
of peat and' perlite. Place the
cuttings in the media and keep
moist by covering with a
plastic bag or use a mist
system. A rooting hormone
may hasten root growth. If
you have any cold sensitive
ornamentals, try rooting cut-
tings before winter and keep
the young plants in a protected
spot this winter. Then, if the
'ornamental freezes, you'll
have replacements for the
spring.
If you want to plant things
this time of year, try bulbs of
Louisiana iris, gingers, cri-
nums, daylilies, amaryllis and
zephyr lilies. Of course, you
can still plant woody orna-
mentals, but hurry up so that
they'll be well established
before the winter arrives.
Ifyou intend to plant winter


CARD OF THANK.
I would like to express my
deepest appreciation to the
wonderful people of Port St.

assistance, prayers and con-
cern during my illness. The
donations to the Tim Nunnery

appreciated.

Keep watching for insects of

Chinch bugs and mole crickets
are very active on lawns and
. white flies, scales, aphids, and
caterpillars are damaging or-

will keep you busy for a while.

critical factor. If you leave fill
in place around a tree for an
extended period, it isn't likely
that you'll be able to save it.,
The key .to solving the
problem is preventing the
damage before it occurs,
taking steps to insure that the
tree has adequate air and
water even after the fill is
added.

EXTENSION NOTES:


Adding Soil Fill Can


Be A Problem
BY ROY LEE CARTER County Extension Director


Believe it or not, some
landscape beautification pro-
jects can wind up doing as
much harm as they 'do good.
This problem is most likely to
occur when your house is on
an uneven lot or if you are
planning one of those glamor
projects that really finishes a
landscape, examples...add a
pool, building a deck or patio,
or even creating a special
flower bed.
Quite often projects like
these involve changing the
land level around the home.
Unfortunately, even the addi-
tion of what seems like a small
amount of soil fill can have a
disastrous effect on establish-
ed trees and shrubs. My
information for this article
was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulture Specialist
Dr. Robert Black.
When you add fill around


trees and shrubs, y u .can
block some or all of thehair and
water they need to survive.
Symptoms may appear within
a month or so, or they may not
show up for several years. But
you can just about betithat if
you make a significant change
in the soil level around~a tree
or shrub, it'll be seriously
affected. and probably killed.
The damage will show up as
small yellowed leaves, a lot of
dead twigs, numerous suckers
along the main trunk! and,
sometimes, large dead, bran-
ches. The type, age and.
condition of the tree or. shrub,
the depth and type of fill
available, drainage and some
other minor factors.
Obviously, the deeper the
fill, the more serious the
problem will be. But, the type
of soil is also important. For
example, clay soil causes the


.1; I~i


most injury, it's so fine in,


texture that it almost com-
pletely shuts out air and
water. Just an inch or two of
clay fill can cause trouble. On
the other hand, you can
usually add up to four inches
of sandy soil without causing
root problems. Gravel fill is
the safest because it lets air
and water through freely.
You also need to think about
the kind of tree you have. You
can expect serious fill prob-
lems- with maple, oak and
evergreens, white elm, willow
and sycamore are hardly

Congress ordered the practice

all undeveloped barrier is-

WANT TO BUY LAND
The City City Commission was
approached Tuesday night at its
regular meeting by Material Trans-
fer, wanting to purchase a.strip of
land which lies between the Waste-
water Treatment Plant and the Gulf
County Canal. Material Transfer
made an offer of some $24,000 for the
approximately three and a half acres
of land.
MTI said they needed the proper-
ty to use for a barge tie-up location
adjacent to their plant, in order to
facilitate faster and more barge
unloading activities. They initimated
that they expected more business than
when the project was first begun,
adding additional barges to their
expected daily load.
The Commission, while wanting
to aid MTI in any way they could, was

still reluctant to part with the land
requested.

As WTP superintendent Bob
Simon told the Commission, "With our
dike so close to the canal and the
attention it is receiving from DER
presently, there is no telling what you
may have to do in the future and there
it no telling what liability you
would be letting yourself in for if you
relinquish control of that property'.'.
After a considerable discussion of
the matter, the Commission agreed to
offer a lease or use of the property by
MTI after they first submit a proposal
to the City as to what their plans are
for the area.

From Certain Extinction




Can Panther Be Saved?


Can an animal species such
as the Florida panther be
saved from near certain ex-
tinction? Biologist Chris Bel-
den of the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission isn't


sure, but is heading a research
team that is trying to learn
more about the panther in
order to save it.
Using the assistance of a
west Texas mountain lion hunt


guide, Belden and the re-
search team a year ago
caught and radio-tagged two
panthers in the Big Cypress
Wildlife Management Area
and Fakahatchee Strand of
south Florida.
This spring biologists, work-
ing in the same area, captured
and released six more pan-
thers, one a recapture from
1981.
Belden, who believes only
20-24 panthers survive in the
state today, said the animals:
are monitored from a distance.
by using radio transmitting
collars which reveal the ani-
mals preferred 'habitat and
seasonal changes.

"The biggest problem they
face today is loss of habitat:
They need extremely large,
undeveloped wilderness areas
if they're going to survive. If
we have development in the
areas where they now exist,
they're a doomed species,".
said Belden.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic
disease which primarily at-
tacks the lungs and digestive


system.
Currently there is no test to
identify the 10 million carriers
of the CF gene. And, worst of
all, there is no cure.
Progress ,against' CF has
been made. However, when
the Cystic Fibrosis Founda-'
tion was first established
twenty-five years ago, few
children with CF lived beyond
three years of age. Today,
many patients live past their
twentieth birthday.
Donations from events like.
this made these current strid-
es possible. Your continued
support will fund research and
other services in the future.

Chickens came .to America
with Christopher Columbus
and the many colonists who
followed. You might say
chickens were among our
nation's earliest, and most
delectable, settlers.
Although there was ,soon
a flock on almost every
.farm, there was not always a
chicken in every dinner pot.
.Even during the 'first dec-
ades of this century, chicken
was still considered a special
Sunday treat. But that was
before the development of
improved feeding and breed-
ing methods. '
Today chicken is one of
the lowest-priced meats. in
the market, largely because
poultry farming has grown so
efficient. We nw .- produce
about 4 billion broilers a
year compared to only 34
million in 1934. Tender Spring
chicken is available any sea-
son and Americans enjoy it
any day of the week, not just
Son Sunday.
With the average person
eating an incredible 52
pounds of chicken each year,
it's no wonder good cooks
value creative ideas for pre-
paring it.

SCypress lumber bought on
the market today has many

matter of caution, the Division
of Forestry, suggests using
only preserved cypress if the
wood is to be exposed to
weather or in contact with the
ground.


to the Social Security maxi-
mum.,
In 1982, a person earns one
quarter of coverage for each
$340 of covered annual earn-
.ings. If 1982 annual earnings
amount to $1,360 or more, the
person earns four quarters of
coverage. No more than four
'quarters can be earned in a
year.
The amount of. covered
earnings needed for a quarter
of coverage will increase
automatically each year to
keep pace with increases in
average wage levels.
The general rule is that to be
insured, a person needs one
quarter of coverage for each
year after 1950, or after the
year a person reaches age 22,
if later, up to the year he or
she reaches 62, becomes dis-
abled, or dies. For example, a
person reaching 62 in 1982
needs 31 quarters of coverage
to be 'insured for retirement
benefits. No one ever needs
more than 40 quarters to be
insured. And, a person cannot
be insured with fewer than six
quarters.
More information about So-
cial Security credits can be
obtained at the Panama City
Social Security office. The
office is located at 30 West
Government Street and the

Troopers Face Dangers


With/the popularity of "back to basics", cooking on the up-
swing, Kikko Chicken Stew is an example of what good basic
cooking is all about. While a stewing chicken is usually used to
hiake an especially rich gravy, this recipe calls for frying chick-
en pieces. There is no need to worry that the gravy in. this stew
will be any less flavorful. Naturally brewed Kikkoman Soy Sauce
produces an equally rich and satisfying gravy for this dinner..
This all-purpose recipe ingredient is the seasoning that en-
hances food flavors without distracting from or overpowering
them. :

THURSDAY, AUG... 1, 1982

i






















The Board of County Com-
mission of Gulf County, Flori-
da, met July 13,1982 in regular
session with the following
members present: Chairman
Jimmy O. Gortman, Douglas
SBirmingham, James L. Tan-
kersley, Eldridge Money, and
Billy Branch. Also present
were Clerk Jerry Gates, At-
torney William J. Rish, Sheriff
Ken Murphy, and mosquito
control director Doug Kent.
The meeting came to order
at 9:09 a.m.
Comm. Money opened the
meeting with' prayer and
Clerk Gates led the pledge of
allegiance to the flag.
Upon motion by Comm.
Branch, seconded by Comm.
Money, and unanimous vote,
the board approved the mi-
nutes of June 8, June 22, 1982.
Jim Appleman, State At-
torney, appeared before the
board to discuss the medical
examiner and the problems
local officials and citizens are
having 'with the office. Mr.
Appleman stated that the
medical examiner was not an
Employee of the state: attor-
ney's office but was.appointed
by the Governor and the office
was regulated by a statewide
medical examiners commis-
sion. Mr. Appleman stated his
Office had been in contact with
other county commissioners
;and with the medical, exami-
ners office concerning medi-
;cal examiner problems as
related to him but he had no
,direct legal authority over the
medical examiner. He stated
'that only 10 percent of the
:autopsies performed by Dr.
:Sapala were criminal related.
,,. oComm. Birmingham then
moved the board write the
i Governor's 'office and the
i medical examiner's commis-
S sion requesting they investi-
' gate to see if autopsies per-
formed by Medical Examiner,
Or.' Joseph Sapala, are rea-
sonable and necessary.
C :omm. Money seconded the


motion and it passed unani-
mously. After further discus-
sion, Comm. Branch moved a
resolution be adopted! placing
responsibility for autopsy
costs on those responsible for
them. Comm. Money second-

DON CRISP
1.. VETERANS' BENEFITS . . ."I'm proud of the military members of our
community. We should allbe APPRECIATIVE of their efforts to keep our
country SAFE AND STRONG.
2. HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION .. "Our FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS in the
Military, our VETERANS and NEWCOMERS to this area walk the same
streets as we do. They go to the same schools, pay the same sales tax.
They should be eligible for homestead exemption WITHOUT WAITING
FIVE YEARS.
3. TEENAGE DRINKING . . " ',am deeply concerned that over 3.3 million
American teenagers.have a serious drinking problem, that 8,000 young
people are KILLED EACH YEAR in Alcohol related accidents and the
40,000 teenagers each year are INJURED AND DISFIGURED in DRUNK
DRIVING CRASHES. This is an epidemic that needs prompt attention by
the legislation.
4. CASINO GAMBLING.. . "I am opposed to casino gambling in Florida.
Just because it may bring some money into our state doesn't make
gambling right. It's not the environment in which our children should
grow up. .
5., PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION . . . "In 1978, 85% of the
voters of this District said they wanted, to keep an ELECTED Public Ser-
vice Commission in a state-wide referendum. They knew what they were
talking about. Since we have had an appointed PSC, our utility rates have
gone iupby 91.6%! As your Senator, I will move immediately to give con-
trol of the PSC back to you, the consumer.
6. JOBS AND INDUSTRY .. . "Our number one priority must be new jobs
and more industry. As an active member of the Chamber of Commerce
and past president I understand what it takes to get more jobs..
7. GOOD ROADS . . . "Our District has the ONLY Metropolitan area
'in Florida WITHOUT A 4-LANE ACCESS ROAD keeping important-in-
dustry and jobs OUT of this District.


DEMPSEY BARRON
1. VETERANS' BENEFITS.. . "I don't think I owe anybody anything. I don't
believe in Veterans benefits." (Miami-Herald Interview, April 1981)
2. HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION . . . Dempsey Barron SPONSORED and
VOTED FOR the current law which'makes military personnel, veterans
and newcomers to our area WAIT FIVE YEARS before they can claim
homestead exemption.:
3. TEENAGER DRINKING . . . Dempsey Barron VOTED IN FAVOR of
LOWERING THE DRINKING AGE from 21 to 18. In 1980, Dempsey Barron
accepted campaign contributions totaling over $5,000 from liquor lob-
byists.

4. CASINO GAMBLING ... Position unclear. However, in 1980, Dempsey
Barron accepted over $3,000 in campaign contributions from the gambl-
ing lobbyists.
5. PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION . . . The most powerful man inr the
Senate didn't care about what you thought. He voted to TAKE CONTROL
AWAY FROM YOUl.Even though 85% of the. people in-this district voted
to KEEP an ELECTED PSC, DEMPSEY BARRON voted FOR AN AP-
POINTED PSC. THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE FLORIDA SENATE
TOOK- AWAY YOUR RIGHT. HE DOESN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE THE
RIGHT TO ELECT THE PEOPLE WHO SET YOUR UTILITY RATES.
6. JOBS AND INDUSTRY . . . This District has some of the HIGHEST
UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA. UNEMPLOYMENT has
steadily INCREASED during DEMPSEY BARRON's 26 years in the
Legislature. 25% of the families in this district are BELOW THE POVER-
TY LEVEL. FOUR COUNTIES in this District have LOST industry. TWO
COUNTIES in this District have had ZERO GROWTH in new industry.
7. GOOD ROADS... After 26 years inthe Legislation, with all his influence,
Dempsey Barron still has.not helped us complete the Four Laning of
Highway 231.
