City Receives




Skeptical Word


On Construction Plans


The City Commission con.
tinues to receive words ol
skepticism from E. F. Gunn,
dlerk of. the works for a
Sizeable construction project
'at the Wastewater Treatment
Plant and the plant's mana.
'ger, R. E. Simon.
Two of the main projects tc
be addressed under the con-
struction program are work
.on the dike surrounding the
.71-acre holding pond to make
'it more stable and, dredging
.solid wastes out of the pond
.which have settled in it over
the past 10 years of operation.
Both Gunn and Simon are
dubious that plans for placing
a "French Drain" around the
toe of the dike to prevent
.seepage of water through the
:dike will not be effective as
designed. Engineers have de-
signed the system, based on a
year's trial of a test strip of
-the system, but both Simon
:and Gunn feel the engineers
had access to the wrong
elevations when drawing up
plans for the drain, in particu-
lar. The only dredging ques-
tion is over the manner of
measuring what is pumped
from the lagoon so as o make
accurate payments to the
contractor as he cleans out the
pond.
An engineering study a year
and a half ago, mandated by
the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation, made the
recommendation that the
"French Drain" system be
tsed to present water seepage-
g through the dike. A 200 foot
test section was installed to
try the recommendation, and
it was found to be effective
and kept the toe area of the
dike Zrv.
As a result of the scepticism
of the two men, the Commis-
sion decided Tuesday night to
delay receiving bids on dredg-
ing the pond and delay work
on the dike until a conference
could be held with the engin-
eers within the next few days.
DOT LETTER
A letter to the City Commis-
sion from district engineer
Allen Potter 'of. the Depart-
ment of Transportation this
past week, let the City off the
hook with its wayward traffic
light at the intersection of
Highway 98 and Second Street.
Potter's letter stated that so
long as the City was willing to
upgrade the light in the future
when money became availa-
able, the DOT would continue
to cooperate with the City and
would help in improving the
signals at the intersection.
WATER EXPENSES
SClerk Alden Farris had been
instructed to work up a cost
report for providing treated
water in the City and Farris
had the report ready for the
Tuesday night meeting, even
though he wasn't present.
Farris had been taken to the
-' hospital last Thursday mor-


ning with a collapsed lung.
According to the report, it is,
costing the City an average of
$1.26 per 1,000 gallons thus far
this .year, to provide treated
water. The City sells water to
its City water customers at a


rate of $1.00 per 1,000 gallons.
Customers who receive water,
from the City through' other
water districts outside the
City limits, receive the water
for the $1.00 charge plus a 20
percent surcharge.

Fans Start Thinking "Number 1 "with Tourney Win


Blountstown's gymnasium was filled last Saturday night, with fans
cheering Port St. Joe's Sharks on to the Gulf Coast Conference championship in
a game against the Florida High Demons. The game pitted the Sharks against
one of the four teams which had defeated them in the regular season and kept
fans for both teams on the edge of their seats for the length of the contest. The i
Sharks went into the tournament as "Honorable Mention" in state rankings
after being left out of the state-wide selections all season long. After the


tournament was over, and the Sharks were the winners, they were inched up on
the state-wide selection standings in Class 2A to number 10. Blountstown, host
for the tournament and fourth on the state poll for several weeks, was beaten by
Wakulla on Friday night in an overtime game and shoved down to ninth position
on the state polls. To these fans, who surrounded the Sharks' team after they
had been presented their championship trophy after the game, the Sharks are
already "Number One" in the state. -Star photo

all. We've had discussions
about these good citizens at
Chamber meetings this past
year, and decided to present
an award to one that we
agreed best typified this kind
of unselfish, dedicated person.
We feel that in honoring one,
we honor all those who do so
much to make ours one of the
finest areas in the United
States." He said that Chamber
Directors chose the first Gulf
Countian to be honored, but


that in future years selection
will be by nomination and

minimum standards and that efforts are
continuously made to improve these conditions.
Regional standards require adequate faculties
and facilities and their effective use.
Citizens are assured of accountability and of
value for their tax dollars through the process of
-standard setting and the regular reevaluation of
SACS member institutions. Communities with
accredited schools can be confident that their
institutions compare favorable with others in the


region. Accredited schools are a "plus" for those
who are interested in relocating their families
and .businesses.
Founded in 1895, the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools is one of six regional
accrediting bodies in the United States. More
than 11,000 member public and private universi-
ties, colleges, junior colleges, occupational
institutions, secondary schools, middle schools,
and elementary schools enroll approximately
five million students. ,


The City of Wewahitchka
was one of 12 Florida counties
and municipalities to be
awarded block grant federal
money in the Second District
of Florida to improve local
services, according to an
announcement this week from
the office of Congressman Don
Fuqua.
The City of Wewahitchka
was notified that it had
received a grant of $412,000.
The awards were made by
the Federal Department of
Housing and Urban Devel6p-
ment under the Small Cities
Development Block Grant
Program.
The City of Wewahitchka
had made application for
block grant funds in Novem-
ber of last year to make
needed improvements to their
water system. Application
was also made by Wewahitch-
ka for funds to make needed
repairs and improvements to
the sewer system which was
installed just a few years ago,
but the request was denied.
"While I was happy to
' support these applications,"
Fuqua said, "the credit for
actually obtaining the grants
should go to the local officials
who prepared the applications
and supported them with the
facts which convinced the
officials at HUD of the worthi-
ness of 'their projects."

missioner of the Wewahitchka
City Commission, the largest
portion of the grant money
will be spent on construction
of a ground-level water stor-
age tank. Kilbourn said plans
are to build a new 300,000
gallon capacity storage tank
on the ground and pump the:
city's water supply in and out
of the tank. The storage tank
will supplement present water
storage capacity in the City.
The extra storage capacity
also gives the city extra fire
fighting capabilities, as well
as supporting the consumable
water supply.
Kilbourn said other money
from the grant will be spent on
making repairs such as new
motors for the pumps, etc.
"We were lucky to get the
money", Kilbourn said. "We
will just make needed repairs
as far as the money will go
after the storage tank is
built."
HIGHLAND VIEW
In a related story, the Gulf
County Commission had a
block grant request turned
down last week, which con-
taiped an item to rehabilitate
and refurbish the Highland
View water system.
The County immediately
instructed representatives of
the Apalachee Planning Coun-
cil to enter an application for
grant money to be spent on the
Highland View system. In the
first application, a number .of,
items were requested for
financing through grant,
money.
The flighland View water
system has drifted into a state
of dis-repair and the treat-
ment system has virtually
degenerated to the point-
where no treatment is done in
the system which was con-
structed through a loan and
grant program about 20 years
ago. The system is managed
by a group of commissioners-
who serve for no salary and
are appointed by the Governor
of Florida.

Gulf C6. Escapes


Storm Damage
High winds and heavy rainfall lashed the Gulf
County and Port ST. Joe area Tuesday night for about
two hours, as a storm front moved into the Panhandle,
bringing twisters, water spouts and high winds to
counties adjoining Gulf.
Even though the storm was a long narrow front
which extended into the Gulf of Mexico for nearly 100
miles, its effect on Gulf County was minimal, have a
thorough wetting down Wednesday night.
According to The Star's rainfall source, Mrs. Emily
- Simmons, the Port St. Joe area had an even inch of
rainfall during the period the storm raged here between
8:30 and 10:30 Tuesday.
Sheriff Ken Murphy said that so far as his
department was able to ascertain there was no damage
from the winds which reportedly gusted up to 40 or 50
miles per hour. "We just had a few limbs and a couple
of extra pine cones blown down during the night",
Murphy said.
While the entire Panhandle area was under a
tornado watch, only two counties actually experienced
the twisters and waterspouts which blew in from out of
the Gulf.
While Gulf County has had considerably more rain
than the.one inch reported Tuesday night, it has seldom
had more than' an inch in just an hour.

Move Cautiously



with Dead Lakes


It's a crying shame the Dead
Lakes here in Gulf -County 'are
getting as mired up in. politics as
k they ar6 in silt which has washed in
and covered the lake bottom.
We think there is one thing we
Sphere in Gulf County can agree on:
Swe are all interested in the future of
* the Dead Lakes and the attributes
: which has made the lakes famous
over the past 100 years.
We believe, the ousted Dead
Lakes Management Committee was
: interested in the future of the lakes,
primarily. We believe the present
committee is interested in the lakes,
Primarily.
All of this may 'have been
-.-:started by a few Bay County people
who had property on the banks of the
lakes and were interested primarily
in the marketability of their proper-
ty. .
Why, this big fuss over whether
or not to remove the Dead Lakes
dam? There should be no fuss. The
only thing to decide should be when
and how to initiate a study to make
b certain it should or shouldn't come
but. That seems the basic question to
us.


* We were never for just driving
in a piece of equipment and go to
- tearing out the dam. We 'were for
E determining what should be done
E and do it. If it meant tearing out the
Y' dam, tear it out. If it meant leaving
. the dam, leave it. If it meant opening
-'up the dam for a period of time and
-:hen re-closing, do it.
The desires of the Bay County
. residents who own property on the
: lakes matters very little to us. If



Hard Times'

We voted for President,.Reagan.
. So, regardless of things, he is o'hr
president.
We thought we needed a change
: in America. There has been nothing
happen since which has changed our
t ihind about that. We still think the
nation needed a change.
The new administration has
made changes, but they haven't,
been the cure-all they were advertis-
ed while the campaign was going on.
Like the campaign promises, we
can't understand what we heard at
the State of the Union address the
other night. The President made a
point of saying, "As we gather here
tonight, the state of our nation is
: strong, but our economy is troubl-
ed."
How ,can the nation be strong
and our economy troubled? We don't
understand that statement.
We have yet to see if the current
generation can cope with not having


they are not interested solely in the
future of the lakes, then we say let
them go back to Bay County and
leave us alone. If they are interested
in the 'lakes' future, we welcome
them to stay and help.
We repeat, we think both the
,past and. present members of the
Dead Lakes committee,are interest-
ed in the lake and its game fish
productivity. We hope they get
together and work together for this
common goal, rather than sit on the
sidelines and carp back and forth at
one another. The dam was built with
cooperation in the first place and
arriving at a solution about what to
do with it for the future should be
decided in the same manner.
Personally, we remember when
the Dead Lakes was a veritable horn
of plenty for fishing. It is no longer.
Why? We don't know, but we'd like
to.
We do remember that the
prolific fish population of the lakes
was prior to the construction of the
dam. What we don't know (and we
underscore the word "know") is
whether the dam is at fault. We need
to find out.
The only thing we are certain of
is that members on both committees
to oversee the future of the Dead
Lakes last year and this coming
' year, would fight you with fists,
clubs, or whatever necessary to
keep another dam from being placed
on the Apalachicola River. They all,
to a man, hold that the free flowing
river is best for the Apalachicola.
That should tell us something about
the Dead Lakes, too.,


Latest Version


a dollar in their pockets, with' not
havingd the material blessings at
their finger-tips which we Ameri-
cans have come to look at as
necessities. We don't know yet
whether this generation can "make
do" when they run out or share with
those around them who need basic
necessities. We don't really know yet
whether this generation can ade-
quately describe the word "necess-'
ity" even with the year or two we
have had of the latest version of hard
times.
If they can cope, then the nation
is strong, even though our economy
is troubled.
We realize the spirit of our
nation is not all monetary or
economy. We just hope there are
enough others around who know it,
and can accent the things which
make our nation strong to the point
where the unemployed will have that
faith in their country also.,

* 0*BBe A Man, My Son

l BY SHAD PHANTRY


I have some very well laid
plans about raising my child-
ren, especially my two boys.
At least I had some. Now that I
am in the very heart of the
project it seems that my well
laid plans have fallen apart
and I amn totally perplexed!
Can I tell you a little about it?
Well, same to you, fella! What
do you know?
Anyway, before my children
were ever thought of (literal-


ly) I started making plans for
the boys I knew I was going to
have. I would teach them,"
through practical experience,
the facts of life and how to deal
with them. This way, they
would not have to surfer
through the learning process
with total strangers and run
the risk of having their
personalities scarred for life.
When my first son was three
years old it was time, I
thought, for the lesson to start.
This is what I did.


One night, right before
supper, I asked him if he
would accept a one dollar bill
not to eat that night. He
readily accepted and did, not
eat. That night, after he was
asleep, I slipped into his room
and retrieved the dollar and
put it back into my wallet. The
next morning I asked him to
let me see the dollar. When he
could not find it I gave him a
whippin' for losing it. To this
day that boy will not take a
bribe.


When he cried about the
spanking, I admonished him,
"Don't cry. Be a man, Son."
When he was about six I
gave him another lesson in
life. Early one Saturday morn-
ing, before anything was open,
I sent him to the store, about a
mile from the house, to get a
loaf of bread.' I gave him.
specific instructions not. to
return without the bread.
While he was waiting for the
store to open my wife and I
packed our-few belongings
and moved to another apart-
ment across town.
Early the next morning I,
reported him missing: a run-
away. When the policeman
brought him home I gave him
another whippin' for running
away from home. Again,
'Don't cry. Be a man, my
Son!"
One day not long after that I
laid a big, delicious Baby Ruth


Letters
to the
Editor


Dear Wesley,
Twenty-four hundred years
ago, the great Greek historian
and general Thucydides said
that what makes war inevi-
table is power and the fear
which power inspires. He
wrote down the small steps-
the ritual dances that lead
inevitably to war.
1.Antecedent grounds of
complaint are recited by one
community to another- the
litany of old grievances; 2.
One depicts oneself as "inof-
fensive, a victim to the
injustice of others"; 3. One
depicts on the other hand, the
violence and rapacity of our
opponent. "We would consider
it disgraceful to trample on
their moderation." But where
is their moderator? We see no
sign of it.
4. In fact, one begins to see
one's opponent as a sinister,
alien breed of men- how
widely, how absolutely dif-
ferent from ourselves; 5.
Urgently obeying "the law of
self preservation", one arms
oneself to the teeth against
this "aggressive" people. Ar-
bitration becomes a "special
word'"- a- sialling-tactic 6.
When "the preparation/of both
the combatants" ai-e "in
every department in'the last
state of perfection" each side
looks for "as good a pretext
for war as possible." By now,
almost anything will "amply
justify" a first strike.
And so according to Thucy-
dides, fear finds it's tribal art
form- War.
S"What good does it do to
build a magnificent machine
of destruction to protect one's
valued way of life; if the
process is so costly and
rehabilitating that it lays
waste our way of life as
surely as if one's enemy
triumphed on the battlefield."
Was this what President Ei-
senhower foresaw when he
warned us about the excesses
of the "Industrial, Military
Complex.?" Shouldn't we

it I put a note and on it I
wrote, "For 'Little Roost-

I wrote, "not to eat!" He
didn't even save me a bite. He
got another whippin' for not
being more observant.
All these years I have told
him, over and over, "Be a
man, my Son!"
I might have over-done it
just a wee-little bit.. Recently
"Little Rooster" got into a
little trouble and my first
question was, "who do you
think you are, acting like a
grown man?"
You know what? I think that
my sons are going to grow into
fine and outstanding men, and
they are going to do it in spite
of me and my help.-

it appears to be about half grown to me.
If we still fail to get a freeze, it'll be a
plenteous harvest.

I'M NOT GOING TO write off the
winter yet. I remember some snow we
had in February a few years back,
which effectively gave us all the winter


we wanted to have that year.
It could happen again.

I WENT TO Atlanta on Monday of
last week to see the orthopedic surgeon
and let him look at my new hip, which is
now a second hand hip: He looked at the
X-rays, said, "My, I do good work",
and sent me back home for a two year
stay.
I believe at least a fourth of Port St.
Joe was in Atlanta on Monday of last
week. Most of the furniture people were
there for the market. Many of the gift
shop operators and florist, people were
there for their own market and show. I
was there to see the doctor, get right
back on the plane planeand come straight
home. I didn't see the others who were
in Atlanta, and they didn't see me.
Monday of last week wasn't one of
your more pleasant days in Atlanta.
When I came outside to get some
transportation to the doctor's office, the
first thing I saw was snow on 'the
ground. As the plane was taxiing in
from the runway, I saw big globs of
snow lying beside the runway and the

taxi-way. I still didn't expect to see it
lying on the ground where it had fallen
naturally.
On the way to town, the first thing
the taxi driver said, was, "The weather ,
man promised us a peek at some
sunshine this afternoon and 65 degree
weather." It was then overcast and
below freezing.
When I got in a taxi to go back to the
airport, a different taxi driver greeted
me with, "The weather man lied!"
He certainly did. By then, it was
nearly 4:00 p.m., and the sky was still
overcast and it was still below freezing.

I DID A COLUMN on the weather
just about three or four weeks ago and
about the time the paper came out, the
weather had changed to just the
opposite of what it had been.
If the weather now turns off gunky,
even for this time of the year, I guess
you will just have to blame me. You
know how Mother Nature is about
teasing or criticizing: she doesn't take
it kindly.
She just might make it snow.

BOYS AND GIRLS
A friend of mine told me that her aunt had made this
remark: "I have never sinned. I am NOT a sinnerl" Most
people would not be so daring as to say that, and I don't
think you would either. If the lady knew her Bible she
would find that the only One who never sinned was the
Lord Jesus.
How would you like to have every thought, word and
deed of yours written across the wall for other ptople to
read? I'm sure the lady wouldn't like that either. God
keeps an account of everything we have ever done.
He knows all about your Ifle from the time you were
:born. Only the Blood of the Lord Jesus can wash away
all your sins. Good works and 'good deeds will never fit
anyone for Heaven. It Is. "NOT BY WORKS OF
RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH WE HAVE DONE, BUT AQ-
CORDING TO HIS MERCY AND GRACE HE SAVED US."
Titus 3:5
If you would like to accept Jesus as your personal
Saviour right now, then In repentance before Him, tell
Him you are a lost' sinner. (All people are sinners.
jfomans 3:23 "For all have sinned.")
He knows your'heart's desire. Own Him as Lord and
.sTmply accept His FREE salvation and promise to wash
your sins away through the power of.His blood shed for
Syu on the Cross, by Faith.
: Jesus' own words: "Him that cometh to Me I will not
cast out." John 6:37
Can you ask anymore than that?

Cards of Thanks


We wish to express our
sincere thanks and apprecia-
tion to all who have remem-
bered us in your prayers and
for the many expressions of
love and sympathy.
To Dr. Simpson, a special
word of thanks for the loving
care that she gave.
Difficult hours of a lingering
illness and bereavement are
made easier by the thoughful-
ness of friends.
The Family of
Mrs. Mollie Plair.

We wish to express our
appreciation to ALL who
participated in donating blood
in my behalf. Your response
shows the true spirit of
brotherly love so lacking in
our society today.
Not only have I benefited
but the blood may mean the
gift of life to other recipients
as well.
We are fortunate to have
recently joined this communi-
ty, and God bless you ALL.
Miles and LaVesta Carney

The family of Harley Ward
wish to take this means to
thank the doctors and hospital
staff for the love and care they
rendered Mr. Ward during his
stay in the hospital. We also


thank our friends for the many
acts of kindness extended us
at the time of our sorrow when
we lost our loved one.
THE FAMILY OF
HARLEY WARD
Dearest Friends:
With deepest appreciation,
we thank each person who
assisted or expressed concern
for Michael Lynch. Each
kindness touched our lives to
make a difficult, scary event
much easier to bear! Mere
thanks seem so inadequate,
therefore, we gratefully offer
a prayer of thanks for each of
you! Special appreciation to
the Police, the Ambulance
crew, staff at Mr. Duren's
store, and staff at Gulf Coast
Community Hospital.
Prayerfully,
Family of Michael Lynch

I am so thankful to God, my
pastor, my loving co-workers,
and many friends who stood
by me and my mother, Mrs.
Portia Byrd, during her illness
in Bay Medical Center Hos-
pital. A special thanks to Mrs.
Isadora Blackshire for her
kindness. Your prayers,
cards, donations, and visits
meant so much to both of us.
I pray the Lord will spiritu-
ally bless each of you.

IN MEMORY OF
JIMMY FRED PULLAM
"My Last Letter to Jimmy"
Dear Jimmy,
In this last letter,: :
There's nothing good to say,,
things on this earth .:
are getting worse everyday.
There's floods in several
cities,
earthquakes everywhere,
wars in many nations,
and little love to share.
Jobs are hard to find,
and money's very low,
There's hate in many
families;
and greed wherever we go.
After all my thinking "
and grieving everyday,
I now can see why God
has taken you away '
Jim I'll always miss you
in everything I do,
But in my mind
And in my heart
I'll always be with you.
Well now I know you're happy
And I know you're with the
best,
So now I'll drop all sorrow
And we both can be at rest.
Before I close my letter
There's one thing I will do .
When my life on earth is ',
over
[ promise I'll come see you.
Love, Your Brother,
Jerry

,Mary, An Phillips, field
director for Girl Scouts, spoke
to the Kiwanis Club Tuesday
telling the club of some of the
aims of Girl Scouts in training
young girls.
Ms. Phillips said Girl Scout-
ing is instrumental in teaching
young girls how to manage
their time, "especially when
they have too much time on
their hands. If they know how
to do useful things when they
have the time, they aren't
getting into trouble", she said.
Ms. Phillips said Girl Scout-
ing offers quality programs
which teach values which last
a life-time and make useful
citizens and family members
of young girls.
The speaker pointed out that
it was costly to provide
adequate programs for girls in
the scouting program. She
pointed out that while it costs
upwards of $16;000 to keep a
delinquent girl in institutions,
it costs $42 per year to provide
Girl Scout programs for each
girl enrolled. Phillips said it
costs some $4,200 to. provide
Girl Scouts for the young girls
of Gulf County with the,

AFTER THE CATARACT

A'cataract is the transparent
lens of an eye that has become
clouded or opaque, and it must 4
be removed. For the patient to
see clearly again, a prescribed

eye. How this is done will de-
pend on the particular
patient's eyes and the doctor's
recommendation. The choices:
1. Glasses-These take over
:'the .Work of the missing
lens. They enlarge whatone

2. Contact Lens-W6rn on the

Friday night, the Sharks
took a narrow 60-55 win from
Havana in a close game which
appeared as if the Sharks
were going to run away from
the Gladiators in the first
period.
. The Sharks took a 20-9 lead
in the first period on fast
breaks and steals and appear-
ed to be sailing to an easy
victory. The Gladiators then
turned things around and kept
chipping away at the Shark
lead until two minutes left in
the game. Dwayne Harvin cut
the Sharks lead to four points
with two minutes to play when
he scored on a lay-up. Then,
with 13 seconds to play and the
score standing at 56-53, the
Sharks put four straight bas-
kets from free throws to give
the Sharks four points in the
last few seconds while' the
Gladiators were picking up
only two on a field goal at the
buzzer by Havana's Trent
Richardson.
Doug Robinson scored all
four of the critical free throws
and hauled in an important
rebound with a three point
lead and 25 seconds left in the
game.
The free throws won the
game for the Sharks who
collected 18 during the night.
Havana cashed in on only five.
The Sharks had three play-
ers scoring in the double
figures. Josh Jenkins, who
stood out on defense in all of
the three tournament games,
had 18 points. Doug Robinson

Plan Ahead for Effective Landscape


AY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Success of landscape plant-
ings depends greatly on site
analysis and plant selection.
The long term value of a
landscape plant depends on
how well it performs in the
planting site. Planting. site
characteristics such as
amount of sun or shade, salt
spray, exposure, water drain-
age and soil type must be
determined before plants are
selected. My information for
this article was provided by
Extension Horticulturist, Dr..
Robert J. Black.
The light characteristics of,
a planting site can be full sun,
half day 'full sun, indirect
light, broken shade, full shade
Ornamental plants can be
'selected which will grow in
almost any sun or shade level
.around the home.
The amount of light affect
rate of photosynthesis, plant
water loss, degree' of sun
scald, and ability to tolerate
dry soil and winds. Most
SY plants grown in shade require
less irrigation than plants
grown in full ,sun.
Plants protected by trees
are less subject to cold injury
than those in exposed loca-
tions because the tree canopy
reduces the radiant heat loss


from these plants. Shade
during the early morning
slows the rate of thaw and can
reduce the amount of cold
damage.
Plant tolerance of salt water
and salt spray is of particular
concern to homeowners living
in Florida's coastal areas.
Plants can be selected that are
well adapted to soils and
exposures of coastal areas.
Poor soil drainage may
cause roots of some plants to
rot while other plants are
adapted to wet areas. How-
ever, plants recommended for
wet areas which are produced
in. a well-drained nursery -soil
may not be. able to withstand
the rapid transition. The best,
solution is to correct the,
drainage problem by altering
surface or subsurface drain-
age pattern, with tiles, land
forms, etc.
A soil test should be com-
pleted before landscape plants
are selected. Select plants!
which are' adapted to the
existing soil type rather than
amending or changing soil'
conditions to suit a particular
type of plant.
Good landscape design re-
quires that landscape plants
be used to serve a definite
function. Plants should im-
prove the appearance of use-
fulness of the home grounds
Homeowners often select


plants with unusual character-
istics.. A limited number of
plants with unusual, colors or
growth habits can be used
effectively in the landscape,
but their location must be
skillfully planned.
Some plants in retail outlets
are tagged according .to
grades and standards as es-
tablished by the Florida Divi-
sion of Plant Industry. A plant
graded as a Florida Fancy is a


healthy and vigorous plant
which is very well shaped,
heavily branched and densely
foliated. A Florida No. 1 grade
is a healthy vigorous plant
which is; well shaped, well
branched and well foliated..
The Florida No. 2 is healthy,
vigorous, fairly well shaped,
and with fair branching and
fair foliage. Any plant not
meeting the above standard is
a Florida No. 3 The lower the
grade when purchased the less
