"Dead Lakes Now Officially Dead



Ousted Board Chairman, JimBozeman, Says Counties Are Losers


SYoung Man Has Pelvis

William Michael Lynch, age 20,
suffered a broken pelvis and possible other
injuries late Tuesday night, when his 1971
Mustang slammed into the. front of
Duren's Economy Stdre-on'Highway 98.
Lynch; on his way home, after getting
off from work, told investigating officers a
vehicle pulled out of Avenue A into the
path of his vehicle. He said he put on his
brakes to avoid hitting the other car and
lost control of his car. The vehicle
caroomed off a utility pole and struck a
metal post supporting an overhead canopy
at the front of the building, then spun
around, bouncing up three concrete steps,
striking the front of the building.


rasi1 i Ues.
Police say Lynch's vehicle was totaled
out in the accident, but the building wasn't
damaged, save the bent post which was
struck by the skidding car.
Lynch'-was-takenrto MunmcipaI"Hospi-
tal by the Gulf County Volunteer Ambu-
lance squad and later transferred to a
Panama City hospital with the hip injury.
The accident happened at 10:55, just
minutes before the store was to close for
the night.
According to Police Chief Roy Robin-
son, investigation of the accident is not
complete at this time. James Graves
investigated the accident Tuesday night
for the Police Department.


Former chairman of the Dead Lakes Water
Management District, Jim Bozeman, declared the
Lakes "now officially dead" late Tuesday:
afternoon, in discussing the ouster of he and other
members of the board by Governor Robert
Graham.
Membership to the board runs concurrently
with the Governor's term, who makes the
appointments to the board in the first place. "The
Governor's term expired the first of this year and
so did ours", said Bozeman, who was appointed
last year to fill a post which had been vacant due to
inactivity for several years. Bozeman was
appointed along with Wewahitchka resident Jerry
Kelly and Calhoun County residents, Clayton
Shivers. Donnell Whitfield and Gary Purvis. They
will also be replaced on the board, according to
word from the Governor's office.
Bozeman feels the turn-over in the board
membership was caused basically by a matter of
philosophy. Bozeman, Kelly and their Blountstown
co-members felt the Dead Lakes Dam should be
removed to bring the lakes back to life as a
producer of game and sport fishing. The Board
had made application to several state agencies for
permission to remove the dam and the first
hearing in allowing the committee the decision on


removal was to be held today in Pensacola.
Rumors had it that the committee would start
removal procedures immediately, today, if
permission was granted today in Pensacola
allowing them that prerogative. "That just wasn't
so", Bozeman said. "We had other agencies
involved in this thing too, and we had to contact
them before we could begin any demolition."
REPLACEMENTS
Appointed to replace Bozeman and Kelly were
Harland Pridgeon, Forest Revell and William
Linton, all of Wewahitchka. At least Pridgeon and
Linton have been very vocal as favoring leaving
the dam in place. Revell's position is uncertain to
The Star, and an attempt to reach him by phone
failed. Both Pridgeon and Linton had expressed
themselves to The Star earlier as to their position.
Pridgeon was one of the prime movers
responsible for the dam being constructed in the
first place and Linton was a former long-time
member on the same board to which he was
appointed this week.
Although the letter from Governor Graham
thanked Bozeman for his service to the
Commission and praised him for his efforts and
accomplishments, Bozeman says he still thinks


politics were involved in his removal and not just a
desire to spread around the responsibility for
guiding the future of the Dead Lakes.
.IT'S A SHAME",
Bozeman said Tuesday, "It's a shame. The
Dead Lakes will be allowed to' continue dying,
now. The people of Gulf and Calhoun counties will
be the real losers. Something really needs to be
done for the Dead Lakes. I feel now there will be no
changes made in the situation and they will
continue to die from lack of attention."
The Dead Lakes have not lacked in attention
for the past year. Beginning last spring, there was
a verbal war started over whether or not to reduce
the water level in the lakes in an attempt to try and
eradicate the prolific water weeds which have
clogged up parts of the lakes. The verbal battles
moved into the courts and then moved outside to
vandalism performed on a lake structure after
dark by various parties.
The first vandalism was in sabotaging the
gates to a draw-down structure after they had
been opened to allow the lakes to drain. Next, the
gates were removed so the lakes could continue to
drain. Next the courts told the committee to have

to say he has verbal commitments from

-project at the City's Wastewater
Treatment Plant. The work, which
Includes four projects in the plant, were

radioactive material in some inhab-
ited area.


The Soviet nuclear powered
.space ship, Cosmos 1402 was sche-
duled to fall out of the -sky Suniday.
',The Soviets said there was nothing
S..to worry about, it would disintigrate
.,.as it entered the Earth's atmosphere,
-::nd would be no problem to anyone,
anywherer.
About two weeks ago, the
Soviets were singing a different
_tune. They were laughing up their
F"sleeve at the rest of the world getting
concerned about the possibility their
space ship might enter the earth and
scatter radioactive material over a
large area of land, possibly in some
inhabited area. The Russians said,
"It's not about to fall. It's doing just
what we sent it up there to do. It's
operating at a low level because
that's the way we designed it."
We have two possibilities here:
i Either the Soviets were lying two
weeks ago, or they're lying now. If
hey were lying two weeks ago, the

If the Soviets are serious about
being concerned for the well-being of
mankind, they could have admitted
to the malfunctioning of their piece
of machinery and warned people on
earth to take certain precautions to
prevent radiation exposure if and
when their space ship .makes it
through the atmosphere and crashes
into the earth, spreading its radioac-
tive core over the landscape.
We would hope the United States
of America would sound a warning
to Russia if one ofne our space ships
posed a danger to their people. We
would hope the United 'States
wouldn't be ashamed to admit that a
piece. of their' equipment wasn't
working right; that some of its
technology could just possibly de-
velop problems.
We can understand how ma-
chines can fail. We can't understand
a reluctance to sound a warning
which might save the lives or health
of people.
Even a golfer will cry, ."fore!"
when his golf shot goes astray,
admitting that on occasion, he can
hit one wrong.



wn Theory

industry would be put back into
overdrive, too, if every American
family would just follow that trickle'
down theory. ,Just go out and buy
another car, all you American
families, and you will put the
automobile industry back:to work
overnight.
This little j maneuver, would
increase the use'of gasoline, which -
would:- increase the gasoline tax
receipts, which would increase the
need for roads being built and.
re-built and this would put all the
rest of the people in the nation back
to work building and repairing the
roads.
See what you can do with just a
little bit of cooperation? Just go out
and buy a car and all the problems of
the nation will be solved, except the
problem of what to do with the
deficit. Even if everyone was
employed, the auto industry going
full blast and the steel industry
turning out steel like doughnuts, we
think the deficit would still be with
us.
Some things can just withstand
any amount of vigorous manipula-
tion: like the movement to balance
the budget did.

Dear Wesley,
It has been a practice in the
past for Bay County mer-
chants to give gifts to the
parents of the first baby of the
year. This year they did not,
see fit to do this. I have written
the News-Herald for an an-
swer if they have one. Please


print this so we can all watch
the News-Herald for an an-
swer. If the answer does not
come or does not suit us we
can practice what you preach
about spending our money at
home.
Yours truly,

and wound up about missing something
when I didn't realize I was missing it.
' From the notoriety I have seen, I
lave really skipped a beat, missing -
lt least two important events which
have 'come along this year to capture
Sie interest of Americans everywhere.
I want to be a good American. I
strive to'be a good American. If it

'ents, then I am sorry, I won't make it

THERE, I HAVE CONFESSED my


slovenly attention to the important
things in life to you. I didn't seeE.T. As
a matter of fact, I didn't even make
plans to go, only to have them.shattered
by something else coming up.
I suppose it would be more correct
to report that I IGNORED E.T. I just let
the little bugger come along, invade the
American sensibility, and then scam-
per off into wherever he scampered off
toand I didn't even make an attempt to

the current wave of preoccupation with

even seem to be "cute" to me, much
less "adorable", as some writers have
described him.
I reckon when you get past 40 you
start slipping up when these important
things come along. Sitting at home in an
easy chair with a good book, magazine
Sor newspaper just -seems to become
more important than E.T.
I even missed "Raiders of the Lost
Ark"


Harrison Ford and his movie while it
was playing.
I don't know what I'm going to do
with me; letting all these important
things pass me by and not even blink an
eye in their direction.

COME TO THINK OF IT, I have
never played Pac Man. I don't even
know what it is. My research is so far
behind I haven't gotten around to


Having a vast ignorance of Pac
Man, I was one of the 12 people in the
country who didn't put in an order to
Santa Claus for an Intellivision or Atari
for Christmas. I am still'looking at
dumb old pictures when I turn on my
TV set. There is not a Pac Man to be
found on my video tube.
How do yod get so far behind in
these important matters?

ON CLOSE EXAMINATION I
guess "Houdini" the cat and I are
somewhat alike, aside from having a
big belly.
"Houdini" has always been pro-
gramed to come to the kitchen when the
can opener turns on. He thinks
everytime the can opener starts up, it is
opening him a can of cat food.
On occasion, it is opening some-
thing else and "Houdini" is fooled.
Recently, "Houdini" and his out-
side brother cats have started eating so
much cat food, I splurged and bought


ns
eir


After the cats had gone through
about half of that case, "Houdini" got to
the point where he wouldn't come when
the can opener turned on. That cat call
was handy, too. If we wanted to put
"Houdini" outside and didn't know
where he was, just turn on the can
opener and here he'd come at a gallop
with his tail held high in the air.
After 24 cans of tuna packed in
water and oil, "Houdini" must run the
other way when the can opener comes
on. At any rate, he doesn't run toward
the can opener any more.
I think "Houdini" has had just
about as much tuna packed in water
and oil as he can take. He had just as
soon have something else for a while, if
my guess is right.
That's my problem. I have had just
about as much of this make believe
stuff as I can take. It's now time for the
real stuff. Enough of E.T. and
"Raiders" and Pac Man.
It's time to get back to reality once
more. It's time for Snuffy Smith.

EYE

OPENERS


S By

A THOROUGH EYE EXAM
0. How do I know If I've re-
ceived a complete eye
examination?
A. There are seven basic
parts to a thorough eye
examination. They In-
clude:
1. Case History-vital
statistics, general health,
medications, seeing diffi-
culties, and so on.
.2. Visual Acuity-the
measurement of how well
you see an eye chart.
3. Ophthalmoscopy-ex-
-:amination of the health of
the Inside of the eye with an
Instrument.
4. Retinoscopy-scienti-
flic measurement of the
amount of nearsightedness,
farsightedness, or
-astigmatism.
',5.Subjective-question
".nd answer procedure to
:ibttermine how your brain
Zterprets visual symbols.
t6. Ocular Motility Test-
Fietermlnation of how
smoothly and accurately
your eyes move.
7. Binocular Coordina-
tion-test of how well your
eyes work together as a
team.
Different patients have
different problems, and the
skilled optometrist supple-
ments the standard tests
with appropriate others. For
example, there are glau-
coma tests, focusing tests,
convergence and stereoptic
tests apd rpany others.

disappointments I have ever ex-
perienced in Washington.
If the Administration had
concluded earlier- that
phosphate mining in the
Osceola would be economical-
ly unfeasible and denied the,
claims of four companies
holding preferential rights to
mining leases, this issue might
have been clarified much earlier.
Secretary of the Interior
James Watt, however, had
consistently indicated an inten-.
tion even an eagerness to
issue the mining leases.
At no point during two years
while H.R. 9 was being con-
sidered by the 97th Congress
did the administration, through
either the Agriculture or Interior
Departments, suggest that min-
ing the forest would not be
feasible nor that the technology
did not exist to restore the
forest to its current functions.
With that 'history it was
something of a shock when,
Secretary Watt announced on
Jan. 13 that he would deny the
leases and the Presidenton Jan.
14 vetoed the bill indicating a
concern about provisions to
compensate the companies for
any losses they might suffer as
a result of the phosphate min-
ing ban.

three of the four gates replaced until a final
decision could be made in the matter.
Since the Governor's action came like a bolt
out of the blue the first of this ,week, Pridgeon,
Revell and Linton have not had time to re-act.
They could not be reached by telephone early this
week for comment.
The old committee, scheduled to meet Monday
afternoon in Blountstown were told their meeting
.would be illegal, and so they didn't meet.
When the appointments are all finished, Gulf
County will have the majority of membership on
the board once again. The ousted board had its
majority in Calhoun County membership.
Pridgeon stated publicly Monday that he,
favors gathering more information on the lakes
and making additional studies before making a
decision on whether or not to remove the dam.
"We want to make sure we are doing the right
thing" (if the dam is removed) Pridgeon stated.
Bozeman says he feels the dam will never be
removed with the present board.

'BY ROY LEE CARTER
EXTENSION DIRECTOR
Muscadines are increasing
in popularity as both a com-
.,mercial and backyard fruit.
The native southern plant
particularly appeals to many
backyard gardeners because
it successfully produces fruit
without an intensive spray
program.
I Muscadines can be estab-
lished while the plants are
dormant any time from No-
vember '15 to March 15;
December through February
is recommended, however.
Muscadine grape varieties
have three different flowers
types: perfect flowers with
functional stamens and pistils,
that produce fruit without'
cross-pollination, female
flowers that must have polli-
nation from another plant with
perfect or male flowers; and
male flowers that were for-
merly used as pollenizers for
females but do not bear fruit
are no longer recommended
Although many muscadine
varieties can be grown in
Florida the Extension Service
recommends certain varieties
for backyard gardeners.
Choose a perfect flowered
(self-pollinating) variety if
you plan to plant a single vine.
These include the Southland
(Black); Maggon (Black);
Cowart (Black); -Noble
(Black); Carlos (Bronze);
and Welder '(Bronze).:
Pistillate varieties do not
produce pollen and include the
following: Fry (Bronze); Hig-
gins (Bronze); Thomas

Revival At

Pentecostal
The First Pentecostal Holi-
ness Church, located at 2001
Garrison Avenue, Port St. Joe,
will begin Revival services on
Sunday night, Januariy 30th
through Sunday night, Febru-
ary 6.
Rev. Walter E. Poole of
Toccoa, Georgia is the invited
evangelist. Special singing
will be. presented nightly.
Pastor Barr and the church
.cordially invited the public to
attend. Services will be night-.
ly at 7:00 P.M.


(Black). Be sure and inter-
plant these varieties with
perfect flowered varieties pre-
viously listed. '
Muscadines should live for
many years under proper care
so a sturdy, wooden trellis is
necessary.
End posts should be from
five to seven inches in dia-
meter, eight feet long and set
three feet into the ground.
Line posts should be at least
four inches in diameter, seven
feet long and two feet into the
ground. Stretch No. 9 smooth,
galvanized wire from end post
to end post to support the
vines. A minimum of 20 feet of
trellis is required per plant. If
you plant more than one row,
allow 12 feet in between.
Plant your vines as soon as
possible after receiving them
in the mail or purchasing. If
planting is delayed by unfa-
vorable weather conditions,
"heel in" plants until a
suitable time. Roots should'
not be allowed to dry out.
Cover them with damp burlap
to conserve moisture. Do not
let them stand in water.
Plant your vines half way
between posts directly under
the trellis. Dig a hole no
deeper than eight inches, ten
inches wide and long enough
to accommodate roots after they
are straightened out. Cover
roots with three to four inches
of clean topsoil, pack and
water, and addf topsoil to
ground level. A mulch, such as
pine needles, will help con-
serve moisture, and discour-.
age weed growth.
Proper care during the first
two years is essential for
successful future fruit produc-
tion. Water plants as needed,
follow fertilization guidelines
and keep the area around
young plants weed free.
Vines also should be proper-
ly trained at this time. A
properly trained vine has a
trunk, twor arnd fruiting
spurs. Each plant should
produce three to four shoots
the spring after it is planted.
When shoots reach one foot
long, choose the strongest and
remove the others. Use a
string to guide the shoot to the
trellis wire. When it reaches
the top of the wire, pinch out
the tips and let the two buds
develop into two arms. Allow
shoots to grow from arms and
produce fruit.
Frequent light fertilizer ap-
plications are more desirable
for young plants than one
heavy application. Apply ferti-
lizer three times during the
first and second year. Use one
half pound of 10-10-10 or the
equivalent after the plants
have been settled by rain, add
one-eighth of a pound, of
ammonium nitrate in late
May and early July. ,

:Arbor Day Initiated In Nebraska In 1872


BY ROY LEE CARTER
EXTENSION DIRECTOR


One hundred and eleven
:years ago in Nebraska, Arbor
:Day had its beginning. On
'January 4, 1872, J. Sterling
Morton, a member of the State
1Board of Agriculture, and
later governor, introduced
and secured the adoption of
.~he following resolution:
'"That Wednesday, the tenth
S day of April 1872, be especially
set apart and consecrated to
iree planting in the state of
Nebraska and the State Board
of Agriculture hereby name it
'"Arbor Day."


Statewide publicity was giv-
en the occasion, and more
than -a million trees were
planted on the first Arbor Day.
Thereafter, ,the Arbor Day
tradition spread until approxi-
mately two-thirds of the states
have passed laws or resolu-
tions providing for the observ-
ance of Arbor Day. The
citizens of Florida had their
first Arbor Day celebration in
1886. In 1945, the Florida
Legislature adopted the third
Friday in January as Flori-
da's official Arbor Day. On
January 21, why don't you join
in the 96th Arbor Day celebra-
tion by planting a tree? My


information for this article
was provided by Extension
Horticulturist Dr. Robert J.
Black..
Trees, not buildings, are the
best measure of civilized
landscape. A sense of time,
history and continuity are
demonstrated in a community
in which trees survive and
more are regularly planted.
Those sections of our com-
munities where old trees do
survive- the better residen-
tial districts, parks, and
campuses are the pride of our
towns and cities. These are
areas we quickly point out to

are also some very practical
ones. Trees may be referred to
as nature's air conditioners.
They moderate the climate by
protecting areas from ex-
tremes of wind, heat, cold,
glare and drought.
Trees also purify the air.
'While humans and animals
consume oxygen and emit
carbon dioxide, growing trees
.convert carbon dioxide,'into
food and give off oxygen.
Trees also cool and humidi-
4y the air through transpira-
tion, the process of releasing
moisture through leaves and
needles into.surrounding air.
On a hot day a young tree can


transpire several tons of wat-
er. That evaporation can
produce the same cooling
effect as 10 air conditioners
running 20 hours; causing the
air to be as much as 20 degrees
cooler under the trees.
Trees purify water, protect
watersheds, control erosion
and conserve soil.
Three-fourths of the nation's
water comes from the forested
third of the country. Trees,
cushioning the impact of rain-
fall on forest floors, regulate
water flow, so provide a vital
link in the earth's water
system .
Trees reduce highway noise.


Forest Fire Record One of Best In 1982
,e.F es. Fire _, c. .f. In


:: Oh what a difference a year
can make!
After suffering through the
worst year for forest fires on.
record in 1981, Florida re-.
bounded with one of its, best
ever in 1982.
: Division of Forestry statis-
: tics just compiled show that.
S- 4,682 forest fires .occurred:
iduripg 1982, burning 102,171


acres. The figures contrast
sharply with those of 1981
when 14,034 fires burned
587,081 acres.
"Many factors caused the
,dramatic' turnaround," said
Division of Forestry Director
John Bethea. "First, more.
people were aware of the'
-potential for forest fires be-
cause of the events of '81, and


they exercised more caution.
"Maybe the biggest factor,
though, was in 1981 we didn't
get much rain statewide; in
'82 we did."
Most every part of Florida
had a serious rainfall deficit in
'81- as much as 18 inches
below average in some places.
*"In contrast,''I noted Be-
thea, "we.had above normal


precipitation at all our report-
iing stations in 1982. And about
as important as the amount
was the timing of the rainfall.
Every time an area began
dirying'0ut and a fire problem
developed, a weather system
would come through to pro-
duce rain."
Bethea expressed gratitude
to the news media throughout


the state for the coverage it
gave Florida's fire problem in
1981.
"Much of Florida's popula-
tion is transient," Betheasaid.
"They spend a few weeks or
months in Florida and the
remainder of the year some-
where else. They often aren't
aware of the threat of some-
thing like wildfire.

Still, for the services you will

say, your cable television

The rate change is being
made due to de-regulation.
Under regulation, some ser-
vices demanded a larger
charge than weie necessary to
provide that service; such as
-long distance calls.- "Some
services subsidized local iridi-
vidual telephone service,"
Mahoney said. "In the future,
each service will carry a
charge which will pay for the
service. This will mean that
the former services which
were subsidizing other ser-
vices will be reduces and the
service being subsidized will
be increased."
"Future billings will be

"The news media not only
wrote stories saying that
Florida was experiencing a lot
of fires, but they did many
articles explaining the nature
of wildfires in Florida, how
they are started and the
consequences.
"A good example is the
increased awareness people in
Florida now have concerning
muck fires. We had hundreds
of such fires in 1981 when
swamps and marshes dried
up. Most people in Central
Florida, where a majority of
them occurred, now know
about the danger :of muck
fires." '
The Division launched an
intensive .fire prevention pro-
gram during 1982, but it
recognizes that results of such
a program are difficult to
determine, especially, in a
year when other factors have
affected the potential of hav-
