School Board Feeling State Pinch


Cutbacks Reduce State Funds to County By $150,000


Gulf County School Board is like a lot of us
common.folk they are suffering the shorts.
Gulf County's board, like other boards
throughout the State of Florida, was hit for the
second time by a reduction in state funds coming
to the county for school operations this month.
Superintendent of Instruction, Walter Wilder said
the two announced reductions in funds to be
available to the-board, came within a month and
will amount to about a $150,000 shortfall for GulfO
Countyin state money for the school year. "That's.
about a 4.5percent reduction in our expected state,


revenues", Wilder said. State revenues account
for a considerable amount of the total school board
.budget for any county in Florida.
"Our first cut was for two percent back
around the first of October", Wilder said. "We met
! that shortfall with a decision to reduce expendi-
tures by each school in its purchases. Then, just a
little over a month later, -here comes another
reduction of 2.5 percent last week and we're
caught- short."
Wilder said the board would attempt to meet
the reduction in funds by reducing some travel


expenditures. "We were planning to purchase two
new school buses with some of our state, money
this year. We'll just delay this purchase year.
We'll also have to curtail county field trips,
drastically regulate the travel out of the county for
athletic events and other uses of transportation."
The Superintendent said. the purchase of
school buses was not reducing expenditures. "It
merely puts off the expenditures for a year and
causes us to have to figure a way to double up on
some' iters next year."
One' thing we are not going to do is


to cut personnel", Wilder said. At the end
of the last school year, we saw fund short-
ages coming and reduced our staff then.
If we reduce staff any more, our program will
suffer drastically. Laying off of personnel will
be the last thing we will do to save money.
Wilder said the county has had some relief in
the state fund reduction this year. "We have had a
few more students report for enrollment than we
had expected or budgeted for. This gives a few
more FTE, which neans more state money to us."
'" *' '


Wilder said that for right now, the board waso1
still in pretty good shape. "We have been cut hard
and cutout some programs we thought we needed,
but still we have fared pretty well. If we have any
further cuts down the road, there's no telling what
we will have to do. It may even get so bad that a
lay-off may become a very real probability, even
though, I repeat, it will, be the last cut we will
make."
In the meantime, the School Board, like many
people in the nation today, is having to learn how
to get along with less money and less services.

Fire Damages Garbage


Trailers Fourth Time


Fire of undetermined origin damaged
two of the county's garbage collection
trailers at the Niles Road collection site
early Thursday morning.
According to Mosquito Control direc-
tor, Doug Kent, who directs the county's
collection and land-fill program, the
two trailers were found blazing early in the
morning hours. Material which had been
placed inside the trailers was burning and
had caused the tires on the vehicles to
catch fire and burn.. ..
"We had a hot fire here", Kent said.
"While it didn't destroy the trailers, the
heat took much of the temper out of the
steel, burned the tires, burned, off all the
paint and probably damaged the axles and
bearings on the wheels." Kent said
extensive repairs would have to be made
to both vehicles.
Kent said'he has no idea how the fires
started. "I'd hate to think they were set
deliberately, but this is the only one of
these sites throughout the county in which
we have had this problem".


Kent said this is the third time one of
the trailers has burned at the Oak Grove
site.
.I'd rather think they are catching fire
from people emptying their burn barrels.in
the trailers, thinking they are out. After a
while they catch back up again and cause
heavy damage to some expensive equip-
ment."
Kent said the new trailer collection
system was working well throughout the
county, both from a cleanliness as well as
an ease in handling standpoint. "If we can
get rid of this problem here at this site, we
will have as clean and effective an
operation as anybody could have", Kent
said.
The county operates about a dozen of
,the collection trailers in four collections
throughout the county. All former land-fill
sites, except the Buckhorn site' in -the
extreme north end of the county, have
.been converted to the trailer collection
operations.

6 Will Try For Jr. Miss Crown


Sixteen high school beauties have been selected as .
candidates to participate in the annual Junior Miss pageant
here 'in Port St. Joe early next month.
, Sponsored this year by the Kiwanis Club, the pageant
will be held Saturday, December 4 at 8:00 p.m., in' the
commons area of Port St. Joe High School.
The girls have already started the activities which
prepare them for the pageant and its presentation of the
youthful candidates for judging of poise, talent, appearance
Sand scholastic abilities.


The winner of the contest will receive a $500 scholarship
to the college of her choice and represent Port St. 'Joe in the
state Junior Miss competition, held in Pensacola each-..
February.
During the time between how and pageantnight, the girls,.
will be practicing their talent presentations, practicing their
presentations to the judges and preparing themselves to be "
graded on the several different areas of competition ..
Tickets are expected to go on sale early next week for the
pageant.


A story in an area daily
newspaper the end of the past
week set speculation to work,
ing overtime here in Port St.
Joe, with the announcement
that a shopping center would
be built on the south edge of
the Port St. Joe city limits in
Ward Ridge, with construction
to begin next July.
According to the story, the
125,000 square foot shopping
center would be built at the
intersection of State 30-A and
Ward Street, which is the
intersection of Niles Road and
Garrison Avenue presumably
on the old golf driving range
property owned by George
Tapper.
The, story in the daily
newspaper said a developer,
Harry Sanders, was going to
build three shopping centers.
- one in Panama City Beach,
another in Lynn Haven and
the one here in Port St. Joe.
Leslie Rogers, a consultant for
the project, affirmed the
announcement.


The two projects for Bay'
County may get to be a reality,
but here in Port St. Joe, the
story is sort of like Jell-o; it's
hard to get hold of.
When the story broke, the
landowner; Tapper was out'of.
town, but his office staff knew
nothing of the shopping center
plans and didn't think Tapper
did either,
Monday, Tapper was ap-
proached as to the identity of
the two principals involved in
the planned shopping center
and just how much of the story
was fact. and how much
fiction.
Tapper told The Star, "I
don't think there's much sub-,
stance to the story. I own the
.property and they haven't
come to me for some time."
Tapper said he sold an
option to the property to the
parties involved back in 1979.
"Since that time, one of the
parties has gone busted and I
have had no contact with the
other one for some. time".


Tapper said he was trying to
get them on the telephone to
talk about the matter, but had
been unsuccessful to that
point.
Tapper .pointed out that
"several outfits" had come
here in past years, looking at
the land, making surveys and
taking polls and then had
written the project off.
Other locations in and near
the, city have also been
rumored as being the future
home of shopping centers in
past years, also, but still they
remain vacant property:
A synopsis of the story is
that the daily paper, says the
shopping center will start
construction in July and take
nine or 10 months to complete.
On the other hand, George
Tapper, who owns the land in
question, says he hasn't been
contacted about the matter
and was as surprised as
anybody else to see the article
in the paper.

night on Long Avenue.
According to Police Depart-
ment reports, a car' driven by
David Ernest Soude of Hart-
ford, Ala., and a pick-up truck,
driven by James Tullis of
Jones Homestead were both
headed in a northerly direc-
tion on Long Avenue. The
truck, driven by Tullis made a
right turn into the football
field parking lot and was
struck in the rear by Soude's

i A MAN'S WORLD,



Riding the Train

* IL' BY SHAD PHANTRY


Most people today don't
remember what it was like to
ride on trains. My father was a
railroad man and because he
was my family and I could get
free passes to ride the train. If
we were going anywhere over
fifty miles from home and not
in a particular rush, we would
get Daddy to procure a "free"
pass and ride the train.
Occasionally we would take
trips just for the fun; of it!
Back in those days (and it
wasn't that long ago) the train
was "the" way to travel. The
passenger cars were not air-
conditioned and it was hot in
the summer and cold in the
winter, I can still remember
the heat during the summer,
especially when the train
would stop. And it stopped
often. The dining and club
cars were the only air-condi-
tioned cars on the train but we
didn't drink and couldn't

Comes Back
Dear Mr. Ramsey:
A letter published in the Star
by Mrs. Sally Malone was
called to my attention.
I do not know about the
other encroachments that she
-was talking about in her letter,
but I do know that she has
incorrectly stated two facts. I
am the builder of the multi-
family dwelling adjacent to
State Road 30 at St, Joe Bqach
for Dr. James A.- Carey of
Tallahassee, Florida. The 10-
cal attorney she referred1 to
simply prepared the applica-
tion, and is not the builder or
owner. No.part of this struc-
ture' will be built on the
right-of-way of State Road 30
or U.S. Highway 98.
I understand Mrs. Malone is
relying on an old project 'nap
of the StateRoad Department
of the State of Florida, which
is not an official right-of-way
map and no right-of-way has
been acquired. If she were
correct, the lots on the off-
shore side at St. Joe Beach
would be cut by 25 feet anid 50
feet of St. Joe Paper Company
property on: each side would
be taken between St. Joe
Beach and the curve near
Highland View, and some of
the buildings would have to be
removed on U.S. Highway 98
in the City of Port St. Joe.

afford to eat in the dining car.
We always took our lunch and
would buy a R.C. from' the
porter that came around about
every fifty miles. They were
expensive, too! I believe they
cost 25 cents then. The cost
was no more than that.
When .I was about twelve
years old, my brother and I
took a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio.
He was older than,I by three
years and was the "Boss." We
rode there, spent the night,
and boarded the train and
returned to Pensacola: The
reason we went was just to say
we had been there, but mainly
because it was free. It took us


six days to make the complete
trip. What a way to travel!
When we boarded the train
and took our seats we noticed
a woman sitting directly
across the aisle from us. In
her arms she held a baby that-
looked to be about two months
old. The baby was crying and
the odor in the general vicinity
told us why. It was not too bad
after the train started because
it was summer and most of the
windows were up. To the
people in the rear of the car,
however,, it was, a different
story.
The complexion of the situa-
tion changed, however, when


we reached Milton, Florida, a
small town about twenty miles
north of Pensacola. The train
stopped and another passen-
ger boarded the train.
The new passenger was
a man about fifty years old.
He was dressed very con-
servatively but appeared to be
extremely tired. He was not
tired, as we soon found out,
but was about three sheets to
the wind.. In the words of the
cowboy, he was loaded!
The only vacant seat was
directly across from the lady
holding the baby. The new
passenger took his seat and'
after some visual adjustment
managed to focus in on the
lady sitting directly in front of
him. The woman, sensing his
physical state, turned away in
disgust.
"Lady," he slurred, "what-
cha got there?''"
The woman, not wanting to
be too obviously aware of his
condition, opened the blanket
that now covered the sleeping
baby,. and held it up so he


could see its face.
"My Gawd, lady!" he ex-
claimed, with a look of disgust
on his face. "That is the
ugliest baby I have ever
seen!" My brother and I held
our breath.
"And you, Sir, are the
drunkest man. I have ever
seen!" she replied curtly.
About that tim he conduc-
tor came- by and the lady
stopped him. "Will you please
have this man removed from
the train?" she demanded.
"He is drunk and has insulted
me. If he is not removed this
instant I am going to file a
complaint at the next station."
She was very upset, to say the
least!
"Settle down, lady," the
conductor said in an even,
controlled voice. "Give me a
few minutes to find him
another seat and I'll move,
him. And on the way back, if
you won't file a complaint, I'll
bring your monkey a ba-
nana."
The rest of the trip was
anticlimactic!!!

+++
THANKSGIVING WILL be and has
always been a day of enjoying family
and a good meal in our house.
I can even remember when I was a
boy and Thanksgiving was always the
time for Momma to cook up a fat hen
and make her own brand of home-made
noodles to place in the stewing hen and
its simmering flavorful fat.


She said they were too dry for her taste
and since they were too dry for her
taste, she rarely cooked one. She
cooked what she liked.
I'm in the same fix now. I eat what
Frenchie likes. That's what she cooks.
If she likes pound cake this month, or
boiled nmullet, or fried apples, or raw
cauliflower or broiled grapes, 'that's
what she cooks.
Since she cooks everything she


cooks in such a way that it is delicious
to eat, I never argue about what the
menu is. I just eat it and enjoy it.

FRENCHIE WAS BROUGHT up on
the same type cooking training as
Momma used. Frenchie's Momma is a
good cook, so, it has made no difference
which way I turned all my life, there
was always some good food sitting
' ready and waiting to be partaken of,
enjoyed and at times, put on a few
. pounds from.
If I was a skinny guy, or even slim
and trim, it would have to be the biggest
insult to a good cook in history. I believe
I would just have to be cursed with no
taste at all, or have the handicap of not
enjoying any kind of food if I were to be
allowed to have a trim and svelt figure.
If a person has any kind of
temptation to tittillate his taste buds, he
is in for girth trouble anywhere I have
ever lived all my life. Talk about your
having a natural tendency toward being
pleasingly plump I have been
bombarded with not only the opportun-
ity but also the necessity to spread my
waistline since I was weaned.


I DON'T PARTICULARLY enjoy
the Thanksgiving season and its cousin
just 30 days down the road Christmas
just because of the good eating,
however. I have that pleasure all year
long from one day to the next. I would
hardly know how to cope with anything
else.

to have their attention forcibly drawn to
the realization of what God has done for
us as individuals and as a nation. It
lends to conviviality and fellowshipping
with one another.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are
probably the hardest seasons in the
year to get mad or angry with one of our
neighbors or friends. We probably
make more new friends at this times,
and certainly cultivate more old ones,
than at any other time of the year.
I was not only born to enjoy and
consume good food; I was born a lover
and not a fighter. I can practice both
natural traits without any restraints at
this time of the year.

The suit, not filed here ii

Wewahitchka, filing the suit i]
favor of his son, Gerald Ake
who was said to be injured
when he rode his three-whee
motorcycle onto the school
parking lot, which was sur
rounded by a single strand
cable fence, which was des
signed to keep cars out of the
area. The cable caught Ake ir
the throat as he attempted to
drive through the parking lot.
According to Superinten-

nothing to do with the me-

Lt. Col. William Greer


Gives Talk on Revolution


"No one knows who fired
'the shot heard 'round the
world' at Lexington, April 19,
1775, but there, between the
Massachusetts Colony 'Mi-
nutemen' and British regu-
lars, the American Revolution
began," Lt. Col. William E.
Greer (Ret.) stated speaking
to St. Joseph Bay Chapter
members at the regular meet-
ing last Wednesday at the
Garden Center.
In his interesting and in-
formed address Col. Greer
described the early battles of
the war at Lexington, Concord
and Bunkers Hill. He told how
George Washington, Com-
mander of the Virginia Mili-
tia, being chosen General by
Continental Congress, led and
unified the militia of the
various colonies into an army
with a system of discipline,
rank and uniform, thus creat-
ing an "esprit de corps"; and
how Baron F. W. Von Steuben
of the Prussian Army, sent to
General Washington by Ben-
jamin Franklin during the
terrible winter at Valley
Forge assisted with provi-
sions, training and drilling of
the troops so that when the
war ended with victory at
Yorktown the Continental sol-
dier was a hardened effective
campaigner. '- I:
Col. Greer brought with him
his French army musket,
"Charleville" pattern, similar
to the 1777 model used by the
French and American troops
in the latter years of the
Revolution. With bayonet at-
tached this gun was taller than
the six foot-two inch General


Washington and much taller
than the average five foot-six
inch height of the soldier who
carried it.
Mrs. W. B. Dye, program
chairman, introduced the Co-
lonel. He served twenty eight
years in the United States
Army and has made a forty
year study of the American
Revolution. The soldier Re-
volutionary War figures in the
museum in Trenton, New
Jersey are his creation. He
designs and paints such fi-
gures as a hobby.
The National Defense report
by Mrs. W. B. Roberts stres-
sed the enduring value of the
Constitution and the need to
. know and understand our
country's history. She warned
of the need to be constantly
.alert against communist infil-.
tration in all walks of life.


Mrs. Thomas Owens report-
ed that she took the money and
gifts from the chapter to the
Veterans Hospital in Gaines-
ville.
Mrs. Swatts announced that
the Christmas Membership
Tea would be at the home of
Mrs. James Harrison on De-
cember 18.
Guests attending in addition
to Col. Greer were Mrs. E. L.
Suber of Apalachicola, Mrs.
Minnie E. Atkins, Blounts-
town, and Mrs,. Claire Parrott,
Panama City.
Garden Club members ser-
ved the Thanksgiving style
luncheon and had decorative
arrangements appropriate for
the season.
Mrs. Charles B. Smith, Mrs.
Thomas Owens and Mrs. W. B.
Roberts were hostesses for the
meeting.

End Season with Loss


Port St. Joe's young Shark
S team marked the finish of
their 1982 season last Friday
night by laying the ball on the
ground six times.
Florida High's Demons
picked it up five of those six
r times one of which resulted
in a Demon field goal and
another which stopped a
Shark scoring drive on the six
yard line.
There's not much consola-
tion in the fact,. but the
Demons, who are now 8-2 n the
season, also dropped the ball
four times and left it laying
three of those times:
The entire ball game, in-
cluding the fumble statistic,
was pretty evenly played, with
the Sharks having the. edge in
the all the statistics.
two in a building year, the
Sharks ended their season
with a 7-3 record and a blight
ray of prom ise for the next two
years to come. .The Sharks
were not humiliated in any of
the games they played all
season long, taking most of'
their losses because of lack of
a strong offensive punch.
The Sharks fumbilitis start-
ed early in the game Friday,
with three of the miscues
coming in the first period. The
second slip, a little past
midway in the quarter, start-
ed a drive for the Demons
which ended in a field goal,
kicked by Scott James, which
split the uprights for three
points. The Sharks lost the ball
on their own 20 yard line on the
second down of a series. Five
plays later, the Demons were
on the 14 yard line with fourth
and five to go for a first down
when James was called on to
kick.
Again in the third period,
the Demons called on James
early in the quarter to boot
Another three. pointer when
the Demons were stalled by a
stout Shark defense.: The
Sharks had them stopped back
near midfield, when Danny
Winchester sparked his team
with a 12 yard run which
helped move the ball to within.
Kicking range.
TWO NEAR MISSES
A close pass interference
call and a fumble cost the
Sharks two sure chances to


put touchdowns on the score
board.
In the third period, the
Sharks started a drive on their
own 32 and took it downfield on
the running of Tres Parker,
Michael Pittman and Josh
Jenkins to the Demon 34 yard'
line. .Terry Woullard had
attracted some Demon atten-
tion as he raced to the Florida
High goal line to catch a Chris
Butts. pass. Woullard jumped
for the ball with two Demon
defenders and the ball was
Stopped up into the air. It came
down in the end- zone, with
Mitch Burke hauling the ball
in for the TD. The referee saw
the play as a pass interference
on the part of Woullard rather
than a touchdown for Burke.
In the fourth period, the
Sharks had forced the Demons
to punt from their own 17 yard
line and took over on the
Florida -High 43. Tres Parker
ripped off a 13 yard run
followed by an eight yarder by
Pittman and another four
yards by Parker. Then, on the
Demons' 18, Parker took the
handoff and zoomed through
the line to the six yard line,
where two Demons hit him
and stripped the ball from his
arms for the Sharks' most
costly fumble of the night.
Parker led the Shark offense
for the night, with 85 yards in
14 carries. Michael Pittman
put on the speed for 72 yards in
12 carries' and Josh Jenkins,
the ninth grade promise of the
Sharks' future, added 31 yards
in four carries.
Willard Paul Gilbert, Mich-
aei Walding, Jay Lynn and
Seth Howell led the defense
with their tackling.
Mitch Burke intercepted one
Demon pass while Josh Jen-'
kins and Jay Lynn each
recovered a Florida High
fumble. The third Demon
fumble recovery was, smoth-
ered by the entire center of the
Shark line.

gathered under a huge tent,
set up for the occasion, to hear
public and company officials
and to watch the terminal's

Erik F. Johnsen, President
of Material Transfer, Inc.'s
parent company, Interna-

ceremonies. He told the ga-
thering that coal started mov-

gress "a superior effort by all
involved."
Mr. Johnsen commended
terminal manager Tommy
Pitts and the MTI employees,
all of whom are Florida
residents, for a "job well done
and for continuing to help us
make this terminal a blue-
ribbon operation." He also
singled out the dozen or so
subcontractors for their "de-
dication and competency,"
complimenting them for a
*"most professional perform-
ance."
He praised the prime termi-

THE SILENT



CASHREGISTER


Its ringing up your kilowatthours.


Maybe you've never ,
thought about it this way, but
every time you turn on a light
or take a hot shower or do the
laundry. you're shopping with
Florida Power. Buying
electricity. And while you may
not give these purchases a
second thought. the meter
outside your house is ringing
up those kilowatthours like a
silent cash register.
It's like any other credit
purchase. If you wait until the
bill comes at the end of the
month to tell you how much
you've spent, the total can
come as quite a shock to your
budget. That's why it makes
sense to keep track as you go
along.
Meter reading puts you
right on the money.
When you record your


meter readings at the same
time every week. you can
budget for your monthly
electric bill the same way you
budget for other expenses. It
will also help you determine
how your energy conservation
efforts are working and which
ones are really paying off for
you.
It's quick and easy.



3 5 -6 4 5
The dials on your electric
meter are like little clocks. They
alternately run clockwise and
counterclockwise. Reading
from right to left, write down
the last number the needle has
passed. The difference
between the new reading and


your last one totals your
weekly consumption. It's really
that simple.
Pick upyour free meter
reading guides.
To help you keep your
. records straight. Florida Power
will give you a supply of
specially designed meter
reading guides absolutely free.
So pick up yours today and
catch up on your reading.
After all. since you probably
buy electricity more often than
anything else, it pays to keep
checking out the cash register.
