City Studies Franchise Bid



New Florida Power Proposal Changes Rules


An offer by Florida Power
Corporation to re,-new their
'30-year franchise with the City
at a higher yield of payment to
Tthe City was examined in
.greater depth Tuesday night.
Jerry Conrad, an executive
with the utility, based in St.
.Petersburg, came before the
:City Commission Tuesday
night, explaining the changes
which would be made in the
new franchise.
Florida Power has offered
to terminate the City's present
franchise three years early in
favor of a new 30-year pact.
Under the. old. agreement,"
which terminates in 1986, the'
City receives payment of four
percent of the electric energy
charges made in the City.
Under. the new agreement,
which Conrad says is now
More or less standard
-throughout the system, the
'City would receive payment of
7six percent of the electric
energy charge.
When the deal was first
-presented nearly a month ago.
by local manager, Jim Cox, he
'was unfamiliar with the fine
print of the new franchise, so
he summoned Conrad to Port
St. Joe to fully explain the
After the deal was fully"
-explained, the City Commis-


sion wasn't all that eager to
grasp the extra two percent
franchise payments and run.
There are some differences
in the new franchise as
opposed to the old one.
Under the present fran-
chise, the City has the oppor-
tunity to buy out the local
distribution every 10 years.
Under the new pact, this deal
would be offered only after the
30 year length of the franchise.
Under the new deal, local
electric subscribers would see
their bills increased by 1.28
percent to pay for 'the extra
revenue to the City. In effect,
the franchise would be an
increase in taxes of 1.28
percent. Conrad explained'
that the present franchise
payments were included in the
electric bill, but the Public
Service Commission now re-
quires them, to specifically
collect and notify on the
electric bill that the franchise
tax had been collected locally.
Conrad explained the increase
would amount to $1.28 per
month increase on a $100'
electric bill.
Under the hew six percent
,agreement, the City would
take in some $31,000 in in-
creased revenues 'per year.
Conrad said making 'the
change now would increase


" city revenues by $128,000 over
the period which remains on
the present franchise.
Conrad pointed out that of
107 cities on their system, all
except 25 are now operating
under the new six percent
franchise. -
LOOK CLOSER
The Commission decided


Tuesday night, the most pru-
dent thing for them to do was
to look closer at the present
deal and the proposed deal. At'
any rate,, the residents of the
City would have to vote on the
question to have it approved
for change. If any change is
recommended by the Com--
mission, this vote will be,


included on the ballot for the
Municipal Election in May.

sey had suggested the Police

Defe nds Lakes Appointments



Costin Denies Deals


Cecil G. Costin, Jr., a local attorney and a.
member of the Governor's Committee in Gulf
County, denied, by letter this week, any deals
in the 'appointment of a new Dead Lakes
Water Management Committee. Costin had
,been implicated in the matter by Water
Management secretary, Jerry Gates, in a,
letter to Attorney General Jim Smith last
week, calling for a state-wide Grand' Jury
.investigation into the matter of the appoint-
ment.
In his defense, Costin reminded General
Smith that he was in the Legislature when the
Dam was financed and built. Costin said he
was on the Appropriations Committee and
was instrumental in arranging financing for
the dam, which was being built under the
approval of the people of Gulf County.
Costin's letter stated, ". . the people of Gulf


County were almost totally behind the
construction of the dam."
Costin said the new appointments were
made because the old appointments :bad
� expired and-the group appointed came to him
armed with a petition containing "more
than" 500 names and "more than 600 letters
requesting that the Governor appoint them as.
members of the Dead Lakes Water Manage-.
ment District."
In answer to another charge, Costin said *
"I recommended" that John Robert Middle-:
mas be contacted (by those wishing appoint-
ment) also.
Costin's letter also 'mentioned a
fact which was made public late last
week in a story in the Tallahassee
(Continued on Page 6)


Mrs. B. W. Eells reached a milestone not
many people reach last week, when she
celebrated her 94th birthday, last Tuesday.
While not many people celebrate their
94th birthday, not many get a birthday
greeting 'card from the President of the
United States, either. Mrs. Eells did.
Last week, she received a special
birthday wish greeting card from President
Reagan and his wife, Nancy. The card read:
"Nancy and I are happy to send you our


congratulations for your birthday. We hope
your special day is filled with warmth and
celebration and you enjoy much happiness in
, the year to come."
Mrs. Eells has been' a resident of Port St.
Joe for many years. During the early years of.
the city, her husband, the late B. W. Eells,
was appointed director of the affairs of the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad, after it
slipped into bankruptcy during the early
years of the century. -Star photo


Starts Today n Port St. Joe



Georee Washiton Birthday Sales Event


Merchants in Port St. Joe are resuming a
tradition they started in the. Northwest.Florida
- area some 20 years ago today, 'as they'kick off a
S.-week end' of sales promotion for. George
Washington's birthday. The Washington's birth-
day sales promotion has long been a popular sales
event in the nation's capital, but was not paid'
particular attention in Florida's Panhandle until
Port St. Joe merchants started it some 20 years
ago.' . . .
In the past few years, local merchants have
not stressed the birthday sale, but decided this
year to revive it in an attempt to revive commerce
here in Port St. Joe and to attract some of their old


customers into staying in Port St. Joe to do their
buying.- . -.-..-... ., . ... -
The sales event today is being participated in by
virtually every business in Port ,St. Joe and will,
continue through the week end.
After a year or two of inactivity, the local
merchant's association plans to get back into a
more aggressive attitude this year and this week
end sale is their first step in that direction.
Nationwide economic slowdowns have affected
local businesses as well as those all over the
nation, and the merchants are using this sale and
other activities planned for the year, as an


attempt to lessen, the effect of the economic
slow-down-in 1ost SF eeoe..-- - - ..-.

George Tapper Selected to Receive Chamber's First "Man of the Year" Award Presentation


Retiring Chamber of Commerce
president, Nolan Treglown told the
annual meeting of the organization
Monday night that the Chamber was
"in good shape" and Port. St. Joe
businessman,. George G. Tapper was
named the first annual "Outstanding
Citizen" by the group, in a tribute paid
Tapper for his long years of continued
activities for the county.
Treglown said the Chamber was
ending the year stronger than when it
started and that several significant
projects had been started by the
organization during the past year.
- Treglown also pointed to the increased
membership rolls during the past year.
Treglown said several projects initiat-
ed by the Board of Directors during the


past year would lay the groundwork for
significant activities by the Chamber in
the future.
TAPPER NAMED
In naming Tapper as the first
"Outstanding Citizen" of the county,
Treglown pointed out that the choice
was the unanimous consent of the
Board of Directors. He pointed out that
Tapper, "almost a native" of Port St.
, Joe, had spent his life-time in service to
the county, community, state' and
nation. Treglown reminded the au-
dience of Tapper's past accomplish-
ments as a county commissioner, State
Representative and State Senator..
Tapper was instrumental in creation of
the junior college movement in the
state and was the guiding' hand for


establishment.of Chipola Junior College
as the first one in this area.
More recently, Tapper has, from
his office as Port Authority chairman,
almost single-handedly secured fund-
ing of $30 million for financing planning
and construction of a new deep water
port here in Port St. Joe.. Tapper has
worked on the project for some three
years as a project he wants to see done.
Tapper was taken completely by
surprise by the presentation and was
obviously emotionally touched as he
made his acceptance of the award. He
said, "You don't know how this makes
me feel. It's easy to get recognition
away from home, but when you get
recognition at home it is most unusual
and I appreciate it very much". Tapper


remarked that his selection was, "The
best-kept secret in town. I had no
earthly idea it would be me. As a
matter of fact, I started not to come
, tonight".
Bishop Rene Gracida of Mobile,
Alabama, was on hand to congratulate
Tapper and describe him as a man who
was also always available to do what he
could for the Catholic church on every
level.. "Every community depends on
the service of its dedicated people",
Gracida said, and described Tapper as
one of these "dedicated people"
PREPARE FOR COMPETITION
Jesse W. Burt, Director of Industry
Services for the State Department of
Education's Division of Vocational,
Technical and Adult Education regaled


the audience with a humorous talk and
took an opportunity to use his humor to
stress to his audience the need to be
prepared to meet the challenge of a
more mechanized future; "We live in a
world where there's no longer any
competition for mediocrity", he said.
Burt declared the nation was going into
the greatest technical change in our
history "and some would send our
young people out into this world ill
prepared in the basics" by eliminating
vocation courses in Florida's schools.
OFFICERS INSTALLED
Clerk of the Circuit Court, Jerry
Gates, administered the oath of office
to a new officer slate for the Chamber,
in a short ceremony at the end of the
program.


Installed were: Mel MagidsOn, as.
president; Bill Altsteatter, vice presi-
dent; Dick Lamberson, treasurer; Glen
Williams, secretary and Wayne Taylor,
Jim Cox and Glen Williams as new
directors.
In assuming the office of leader-
ship, Magidson said, "Whatever is
accomplished during the coming year
is the result of many years of
groundwork laid by the officers and
boards of directors in the past."
Magidson called on the entire Chamber
membership for help in his year of
tenure.
Some 130 Chamber members, and
guests enjoyed a steak dinner in the
Commons Area of Port St. Joe High
School, prepared and served by the
Port St. Joe Lions Club.

having a chance to attend a
meeting: Those are -facts.
There are a lot of rumors
about these appointments.
On, Monday, January 24,
Ex-Chairman Jim Bozeman
told me he had phoned At-
torney Cecil C. Costin, Jr., in
Port St. Joe, to ask about the
rumor that Mr. Costin was
responsible for the appoint-
ments and Mr. Bozeman told
me Mr. Costin stated John
Robert Middlemas, of Pana-
ma City, was responsible for
the appointments. On Tues-
day, January 25, I talked to
John Robert Middlemas, of
Panama City, a friend of the
Governor's, who told me he
had nothing to do with the
appointment of the new mem-
bers.
One of the three new mem-
bers appointed, William Lin-
ton, was the Chairman of the
Dead Lakes Water Manage-
ment ,District when the dam
was built. Harland 0. Prid-
geon, another new member,
was honored at the dedication
of the dam with the following
words, and I quote, "The Dead
Lakes Dam made a reality by
the dedicated work of Harland
0. Pridgeon," end quote. Mr.
Harland 0. Pridgeon was Tax
Collector in Gulf County from


1953 to 1980.
The third new member,
Forest A. Revell, as far as I
can determine, did not partici-
pate in the building of the
dam. However, he is married
to Mr. Harland 0. Pridgeon's
niece. In addition to that
relationship, Harland 0. Prid-
geon's father and Cecil G.
Costin, Jr.'s mother were
brother and sister. Also, Mr.
William Linton and Mr. Cecil
G. Costin's uncle are married
to sisters. Finally, Cecil G.
Costin, Jr., while a member of
the , Florida Legislature in
1957, *co-sponsored the bill in
the Legislature creating the
Dead Lakes" Water Manage-
ment District and introduced
House Bill 1244, which provid-
ed the district with a method
to obtain state funding to build
the dam. Cecil G. Costin, Jr. is,
married to Lieutenant Govt
ernor Wayne Mixon's sister.
There is another .connection
between newly appointed
member Forest A. Revell and
his uncle, Harland Pridgeon.
On December 29, 1959, twelve
months after construction on
the bridge over the dam was
started, a quit-claim deed was
recorded whereby Neal Lum-

ary 19, 1983. Gates has implied
that there was misconduct in
the appointment of the three
members from Gulf County
because of their relationship
and that the dam was con-
structed in 1957 because there
was some incentive for gain on.
the part of 'these 'individuals." .
Surely, the relationship of any
Board members would not
have mattered to Gates if they
had agreed with him that the
dam should be immediately
removed. However, the other
inference on the part of Gates
that the dam was constructed
in 1957 because of an incentive
for gain for some of the
members should be addres-
sed . ..
Gates came 'from Calhounr
County to Gulf County some
years after the dam was'
constructed in 1957, or he
would have known that the
people in Gulf County were
almost totally behind the
construction of the dam.
Every candidate that ran for
the Gulf County Legislature
during 1954 and 1956 elections
advocated building this dam.
In 1956, the candidates for the
Senate in the District advo-
cated building the dam. Those
running for the Gulf County


Commission in both 1954 and
1956 advocated on their politi-
cal cards 'the building of the
dam. The U.S. Congressman
for this District came tc
Wewahitchka and offered to
help with Federal assistance,
if necessary. The Gulf County
Chamber of-Commerce and all
major civic clubs in the county
passed resolutions asking the
Legislature to appropriate
money for the dam. As a,
member of the Appropriatiops
Committee, I assisted in get-
ting an appropriation for a
feasibility study in the 1955
session. All State agencies,
including the Game and Fresh
Water Commission, supported
the dam.
Although the dam is located
solely in Gulf County, Calhoun
County participated in the
legislation in order to assist in
financing the portion required
as matching funds for the
grant. It would have been
impossible to enforce fishing
permits on the Dead Lakes in
the area located in Calhoun
County had it not been includ-
ed in the law.

on the Governor's Committee
in Gulf County and in 1981, he

Dear Wes,
I've never written a letter to
an editor but your recent
comments. regarding an arti-
cle in Reader's Digest, critical
of public education merits a
response. The issue of private
vs public 'education and the
merits of both is of no real
concern to me. It represents a
parental preference, and the
fact that my children attend
public schools and someone
else's attend private schools is
simply an exercise of one of
our great American freedoms.
In rebuttal to your comments,
I address only your criticism
of public education and in no
way criticize or make com-
parison with private schools.
I respond as a product of
public education, as a parent
who has three children enrol-
led in public schools, arid as
Superintendent of the Gulf
County School System. In all
capacities I am pleased with
the results I see. Admittedly,
there are imperfections, be-
cause as in any other profes-
sion including lawyers, doc-
tors, editors, accountants, pa-
permill workers, secretaries,

many other things.
"Love you loads?", she
concluded and hung up.
The family week-end visit
has turned into a permanent
perch on the roost!
And that's not the worst
thing. In addition to being here
six years (who .knows how
long she will stay) she has not
been able to adjust to our
life-style. Her expensive tas-
tes have not changed. If
anything, they have grown
more exotic.

basics above, we now teach 9'
C.P.R., first aid, we feed and

the evils of drugs and alcohol,
health and personal hygiene,
we give vocational training in
welding, auto mechanics,
clerical skills, and home eco-

study programs like D.C.T.,
we test 'the students, teach
them how to drive an automo-

activities, we provide educa-
tional as well as vocational
counseling- the list could
continue on and on. Even with

"Oh, Shad, you have always

said, laughingly. "I'm just

There are other things, to be
sure! She never helps around
the house: Quite the-contrary.
One week,: shortly after she
was nestled in and I was out of
town, she hired a part-time
maid. "You can afford it," she
stated when I inquired about
the expense. "Besides, you
know I love to watch my
soap-operas during the day."
.The part-time maid is now
full-time and there is a yard
man on Saturday...I am the
yard man!
Another thing she does is
beat our children. Although
we were raised by a mother
who firmly believed in .the
adage, "spare the rod and
spoil the child," Ihave tried to
conform to the new child-
rearing techniques; talk to the
children and never, never
spank them. Her motto is,
"Beat them first and ask
questions later!"

S, FIRST, LET ME report that I had a-
:_told a week ago. It was my first cold in
-Acwbout a year or two and it didn't last for
-very long, but it played havoc while it
was here.
I didn't have to go home and go to
bed with my cold, but most of the people
here at the office wished I had, because
just about the time I was recovering,
they came down with what was left of
my cold. I shared.


My cold was one of those runny
nose colds; you know, the kind which
just runs and runs and keeps you wiping
and wiping. All day long I would drip,
drip, drip into a Kleenex. Sometimes,


the drip would drop before the Kleenex
was brought into play and I would have
to give a great big "sniff!" to keep
things from getting soggy. In just a
little over a day, I went through a big
box of Kleenex.
My cold was one of those "Mona, I

IT'S MORE THAN a year before we
will be voting for a President again, but
already there has been a candidate by
The Star office, telling the world what
he plans to do if he is elected.
It was just about this time nearly
seven years ago when former President
Jimmy Carter's wife came by cam-
paigning for him and, lo and behold, he
was elected. Mrs. Carter was a neat,
clean campaigner, who put up a good


. appearance for her husband.
I can't say as much for this latest
candidate. Harold Jacobs, of Lombard,
Illinois, was unkempt, dirty, ragged,
smelly, talked too much and his shirt
and undershirt tails were hanging out.
Jacobs made the mistake of coming
by on Wednesday, and even if I was
wont to vote for him, that little act
alone, would shy me away.
Jacobs handed us four legal pages,
handwritten with a soft lead pencil, rife
with mis-spelled words and split
sentences.
I don't think he'll make it, even if he
is early.

ATLANTA BRAVE BOB HORNER
caused a stir in the sports world
recently when it was revealed he was to
receive an annual bonus of $100,000 for
not letting his weight get over 215
pounds. This was almost like money in
the bank, everyone thought, but a close
inspection of the matter by various
sports writers, revealed that Horner
might not have such an easy time of it.
Lewis Grizzard, columnist - and


former sports writer for the Atlanta
Constitution, even went so far as to say
that Horner wouldn't make the 215 and
didn't care, anyhow, .since he was
already getting a mint of money to play
baseball at any weight, and the extra
100 grand a year would be nothing more
than pocket change to him.
Grizzard said, publicly, that Hor-
ner wouldn't make the weight because
he was a lard-butt and lard-butts hardly
ever got into sports in the first place,
intimating that Horner was only
playing on borrowed time. There would
come a day when Homer's eating
glands would over-rule his playing
glands and that would be it.
Anyhow, the latest word I read is
that Horner isn't going to get that extra
100 thou a year if he keeps his weight
down. The last word I had on this
situation was that old lard-butt Bob was
going to get socked with a fine of 100 big
ones if he went over the 215 pound
mark.
Ted Turner, filthy rich though he
may be, is intent on protecting his
investment in Homer and have it pay
off someone besides Homer in this deal.

1:28 p.m. On December 29
1959, at 1:29 p.m., one minute
later, a warranty deed was
recorded from Neal Lumber
Company for the same
amount, $2,000, to Harland 0
SPridgeon and Jack K. Prid
geon, deeding the exact same
piece of land. The boundaries

Scorner of the bridge over the

feet touching water on bott
sides of the road and bounded
Sin the middle by the road
crossing the Dead Lakes Dam
and splitting the property.
Within two months after the
bridge across the dam was
completed on September 30,
:" .1960, Mr. Harland 0. Pridgeon
filed a plat, the Harland 0.
Pridgeon Plat, containing 17
lots, number A-Q, filed in
Official Record Book 5,' Page
S504, on November 29, 1960, at
S11:06 a.m. and located at its
furtherest point no further
than 2,200.00 feet from the east
'7 corner of the bridge over the
.Dead Lakes Dam and adjoin-
ing the property he purchased
from Neal Lumber Company,
which was only 762 feet from
the new bridge. During the
time period 1959-1962, the time
period when' the bridge and
dam were being constructed,
Mr. Harland 0. Pridgeon
: made at least fifteen land
transactions within 2,000 feet
of the bridge and dam.
I only did a quick search of
the official records of Gulf
, County due to time constraints
1 and I feel there are more
transactions than that. But
what I am leading up to is the
-z connection, other-than family,
between Harland Pridgeon
and Forest Revell. On the 28th
day of May, 1965, Hailand
Pridgeon sold Forest A. Re-
vell, for $10.00, a' piece of,
Property 597 feet easterly.
from the Chipola River Bridge
- over the Dead Lakes Dam, 240
feet by 240 feet. On June 1,
1965, Jack K. Pridgeon sold to
Forest Revell for $10.00 a
piece of property 837. feet,
- easterly ,"from the Chipola
River Bridge over 'the 'Dead.
Lakes Dam and I quote from
the deed, "This parcel of land_
joins on the east side of the
piece of land bought from
Harland 0. Pridgeori."
What I, and a lot of .other
people, would like to know is
who did recommend these
parties be nominated to re-
' place the' .current members
and why were only three of the
five members replaced, when
all terms expired at the same
time. Was it simply to give the
new members a majority? On
Wednesday, January 26, I
personally contacted the Lieu-
, tenant Governor's office and
even though I was promised a
,;. meeting with' the Lieutenant
,, Governor by, his staff to
Discuss this matter with him, I
Shave been unable to obtain an
Appointment. In addition, af-
ter .contacting John Robert
Middlemas of Panama City on
STuesday, January 25, concern-
Sing this matter, I was told by
Shim he would talk to the
, Governor about my concerns
. and get back to me but he has
Failed to do so. I still do not
S believe our Governor knows
about all this. I have tried to
tell him, without success, and
c therefore I have no alterna-
t: ive, based on these connec-
Stions both family, financial,
Sand involvement with the
Construction of the dam, but to
ask Attorney General Jim
Smith, the highest ranking


. Law Officer in this State to put
-: this before the State-Wide
- Grand Jury for investigation.
. In the meantime,,I will ask the
Governor, by this letter, to
remove the recently appointed
members from the District
and re-appoint those members
just removed. Those members
-' have received undue criticism
and unjust removal from
office. The second thing they
did in their first meeting as a
Board, was accept the resig-
nation of, Harland 0. Prid-

remove all the gates from the
water control structure. The
eighth thing the Board did in
their first meeting was, and I
quote from the minutes of
November 4, 1981, "Instructed
the Secretary to write the
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, Department of
Environmental Regulation,
and Department of Natural
Resources requesting they
provide the District with any
studies of the Lake conducted
by their agency within the
past ten years and requesting
that each' agency have a
representative at the next
District meeting." By March
4, 1982, the Board received a
report from the State of
Florida, Department of Na-
tural Resources, Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission, titled Fisheries,
and Aquatic vegetation - re-
-commendation for the Dead,
Lakes. The last paragraph
reads and I quote, "An
effective drawdown: on the
Dead Lakes apparently can-


not be accomplished through
the existing structure. We,
therefore, recommend further
engineering and hydrological
studies be conducted to deter-
mine the alterations neces-
sary to allow a. maximum
drawdown of the Dead Lakes
water level. This technique
provides for the most cost
effective and biologically
sound Fishery and Habitat
I improvement for the reser-.
voir." end quote. The Board
received a report entitled
"Recommende Management
Plan for Dead Lakes as
Proposed by the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Com-
mission." This report is twel-
ve pages long and contains
many interesting facts, one
and'I quote, "A 1964 Lake and
Stream report by personnel of
the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission states: "The
sole purpose of the structure.
was to maintain natural water
.level, in Dead Lakes. and
contrary to popular belief, the
dam or spillway does not or


rather did not create any
greater area by its construc-
tion. Fluctuation may be as
high as five feet above to six
feet below_ the top of the
present dam. In actuality the
dam eliminated low, water
conditions from occurring"
end quote. This report also
had as its number one recom-
mendation the same as that of
the Department of. Natural
Resources (A study the Board
spent $3,000 on) but its number
two recommendation is just as
.important and I quote "It is
recommended that the draw-
down gates be left. in their
present opened position," end
quote. That recommendation
was overruled as a result of a
lawsuit brought., by Panama
City landowners. Now, only
one of the four: gates is open.
However, the most interesting
statistic to me in' the .twelve
page report is one with which I
doubt anyone who fishes
would argue with. In 1972,
there were four hundred forty-
four Shellcracker and se-

each year showed a decline in
those and other Spdrtfish
species. In 1978, there were
only sixty-two Shelleracker
'and forty Largemouth Bass
per acre in Dead Lakes. These
reports are available from the
above listed State Depart-
ments and are, also available
'in the Clerk's Office, Gulf
County. The dam cost less
than $300,000 to build, not
$3,250,000.00 as I have seen
quoted in the paper. An
interesting paper on dams
written about the Dead Lakes
in Wewahitchka in March 1974
(before all this controversy)
by Robert L. Lazor, Botanist,
Florida Depattment of Natur-
al Resources, who told' me
"That the minVte you dam a,
body of water it starts dying,"
related in scientific terms in
the article what he told me in
Laymen's terms in person and
I quote, "As the years go by,
the impounded body of water
begins to suffer symptoms of


old age. The reservoir begins
to fill up with weeds, the
bottom gets 'mucky due to.
silting in, and the game fish
begin to have trouble spawn-
ing due to their need for a
relatively hard bottom neces-
sary for their reproduction.
The' game fish as predators
begin to have difficulty finding
the baitfish and minnows in
the weed-infested waters.
With time,'I only those fish
species (primarily non-game)
who can spawn on vegetation
or on the silty bottom will
dominate. Bream and Bass
are forced to try and spawn
along hollow logs and in
stumps above the bottom
mucks. As the layers of muck
build up, year after year, the
impounded area becomes
highly eutrophic and the ac-
cumulated layers of ooze and,
mucks become deficient in
oxygen. Many' sulfur com-
pounds replace the oxygena-
ted soils and import the smell
of "rotten eggs: to the bottom.

There will be a hearing
within ninety days in :the
geographic area of the Dead
Lakes, Calhoun or Gulf-Coun-
ties, to allow the opponents of
removal of the dam to present
facts and conclusions of law as
to why the dam .should not be
removed. This was recom-
mended by the Attorney of the
Northwest Florida Manage-
ment District because there
were substantial objections to
their staff's recommendation
to grant the permit to remove
the dam. Nothing could- be
fairer than a hearing, how-
ever, it is my opinion :the
hearing will never occur iftthe
newly appointed members of

'agement District are allowed
to remain in office.

In closing I would like to ask
the Governor of the State of
Florida, besides restoring the
past members to their respec-

call on the Department of

assist the Dead Lakes Water
Management District in an-
swering any questions that
anyone may still have about
the Dead Lakes.


Costin Defends Himself On Dead Lakes Appointment


(Continued From Page Two)
asked me to assist in getting
appointments to the Dead
Lakes District. He suggested
certain names,, and when I
called the Governor's office
concerning the suggestions,
the Governor's appointment
secretary recommended the
name of one of the resident
fish camp owners whom I did
not know at that time, but who
had corresponded with the
Governor concerning the
Dead Lakes on numerous
occasions. When I mentioned
the name of this owner to
Gates as a possible appointee,
he stated that this person
should not be appointed. I did
not know at that time that
Gates was motivated to try
and remove the dam. In fact, I
did not participate in any of
the controversy concerning
the removal of the dam until I
had a call from Harland 0.
Pridgeon, William Linton, and
Forest Revell, who informed
me of a meeting of a large
group of people including
resident fish camp owners
who requested that they serve
as Gulf County members of
the District. These three per-
sons asked me to secure an
appointment with the Gover-
nor for them as soon as


possible. Contacted the Go-
vernor's office and learned
that he was out of the State. An
appointment was made with
Lieutenant Governor Wayne
Mixson for them, and they met
with him concerning the con-
troversy on the Dead Lakes
and had with them more than
500 names on a petition and
more than 600. letters request-
ing that the Governor appoint
them as members of the Dead
Lakes Water Management
District. Lieutenant Governor
Mixson advised them that he
would bring the petition and
letters to the attention of the
Governor.
Since all of the other com-
missions had expired,-I re-
commended these three per-
sons to be appointed and


suggested that John Robert
Middlemas, a friend of the
Governor, be contacted also. I
was informed by one of these
persons that John Robert
Middlemas had already been
contacted by other persons
concerning the controversy,
arid he had talked with the
Governor in support of' defer-
ring any action on the removal
of the. dam until further
studies were made.
I have always felt that Gulf
County should be entitled to
three members of the Board
because the dam and the
greater portion of the Dead
Lakes are located in Gulf
County. It is my personal
feeling, that the dam should
not ve removed until a careful
study is made as to its affect,


if any, on the fishing and
water conservation in the
Dead Lakes. My thinking is'
buttressed by the fact that all
resident fish camp owners,
with the possible exception of
one, favor keeping the dam at.
this time, and it would appear
to me that it would not be
'logical that they vote against
their own economic interest.
I was advised by the Gover-
nor's appointment secretary
that the appointments of these
members, as well as the
Calhoun County members to
be appointed, would be condi-
Stioned on their agreement that
the duties of the Dead Lakes
Water Management District
be transferred to the North-
west Florida Management
District where appropriate


studies can be made concern-
ing the feasibility of maintain-
ing the dam. The Governor
was well aware of these
appointments and their in-
terest in the Dead Lakes.
Shortly after the appoint-
ments were made, Jim Boze-
man called me by telephone
and asked me why he was
removed or replace on the
Board. I advised him that his
commission had expired on
January 4, 1983, and there was
no longer a legally constituted
Board until the Governor
made appointments. I also
advised him of my interest in
seeing that the dam would not
be removed until appropriate
feasibility studies would be
the� Northwest Florida Man-
agement District, and that in


view of the controversy, the
Dead Lakes Water Manage-
ment District should be ab-
sorbed in the Northwest Flori-
da Management District so
that proper studies could be
made before any action was
taken to remove the dam. I
advised him that there were a
number of people who recom-
mended the appointment of
these persons, including my-
self. The only time I mention-
ed the name of John Robert
Middlemas to him was to
inform him that I understood
Middlemas had also talked
with the Governor concerning
this controversy in behalf of
one or more of the fish camp
owners.
I realize that you do not
have any function to call a

pating county.
I believe we were appointed
as. members of the Dead
Lakes Water Management
District because of more than
600 letters furnished to the
Governor of Florida request-
ing our appointment by people


who are interested in the Dead
Lakes including the resident
camp operators. We also had a
petition with more than 500
persons stating the reason
why they felt that the North-
west Florida Management
District should not grant any
permit to remove phe dam


until exhaustive studies were
made. We know of no State or
Federal agency that has re-
commended the removal of
the dam; however, there have
been recommendations of fur-
ther engineering and hydro-
logical studies on the part of
one agency.


It is our intention when we
assume office as members of
the Dead Lakes Water Man-
agement District to see that
the public is made aware of all
studies to be made concerning
the feasibility of the dam. We
also point out that Gulf County
was totally behind the con-


struction of this dam in 1957
when the legislation was pas-
sed. Every public and civic
body in Gulf County endorsed
the construction of the Dead
Lakes dam. In fact, all of the
candidates that ran for office
at that time endorsed the
construction of the dam. This


can be confirmed by: an
examination of "The Star"
and "The Gulf Codnty
Breeze" for the year between
1954 and 1957.

Tuesday night, it was de-

This brought on another

Costin---

Democrat- that the Governor's office
intends to turn the duties of the Dead
Lakes Water Management Committee
over to the Northwest Florida Water
Management District. A paragraph in
his letter contains the sentence, "I was
advised by the Governor's appointment
secretary that the appointments of
these members, as well as the Calhoun
County members to be appointed,
would be conditioned on their agree-


above the state average.
.Learning is and will contin-
ue to be a self-initiated
process. Did you ever try to
teach a child who wasn't PROF
interested in and who totally
resisted learning? There is no
surgical procedure or injec-
tion. whereby you educate
where there is no interest in
learning. Likewise, the pro-
cess takes parental support
and parental participation for Drums
maximum results. Does that
exist today? We held an
orientation folr parents at Port Rotor
St. Joe High School on Tues-
day, February 8. The event Valve,
was well publicized, however,
we had 51 parents attend out of c
a possible 1260. It will take 6 cy
greater parental involvement
if we are to achieve optimum 4 cy
educational results!
As I reflect on your criti- Press
cism of public education,
*several thoughts come to
mind. I think of the teacher Head
who has volunteered to teach
more students in an academic 6 cy
setting than is required by
state law or contract simply 4
because he wants to teach all 4
the kids in a particular grade.
His level of accomplishment is BIOcks
cited by all those who go
through his program. I think 6 cy
of the elementary teachers at
* Wewahitchka Elementary
School who spent untold per- 4 CY
sonal hours- and personal
Dollars preparing for the
transfer to a new site. They
painted bookcases and other
furnishings and, in general,
spent many hours of their own
time to assure an orderly S
transition for our children.
I'm reminded of the times I've 201 LOi
been by Port St. Joe Elemen-
tary, School and Highland
View Elementary School oh
week-ends and found many of
our teachers preparing for the
upcoming week. I'm reminded
\ of the principal who came to
my office last week near tears
because he could not solve
problems for some of his
students that were severely
affecting their ability to learn.'
These problems were home
related and could not be
successfully addressed by
school personnel. I think of the P
cold January nights a few
years ago when I was called to
the emergency room because XZH
one of our principals had been
felled by an attempted hssas-
sin. He was apparently shot
because he was attempting to
provide an appropriate atmos-
phere for one of our school
activities. I see the anxiety on
his face as he lies on a blood.
stained table unaware of the
severity of his wound. In less
than two weeks he is back at
work with renewed dedication
to make things better for our
kids. I think of a recent
evening when two of our
female teachers returned
from an out of town trip on
which they supervised a group
of students, at 1:30 A.M.; and I
recognize they volunteered for 155
this duty. I see all these things
and I'm proud to be a part of 165
public education.
Yes, we can improve and we 175
do daily- such is the nature of
our work. Please, before you 181
level criticism at public edu-
cation "come walk a mile in 1 7

Shark
Free throws did it again.
The Port St. Joe Sharks used
their dead eyes on the free
throw basket oce again last
Friday night to dump the
number state ranked Vernon
Yellow Jackets from their
lofty perch. The win by the
seventh ranked Sharks put the
Jackets down into second
place in the state polls. The
Jackets were playing without
the services of Tony Johns,
their starting center, for much
of the game, after an ankle
Injury side-lined him in the
first period.
It was Josh Jenkins' two
free throw baskets in the final
three seconds of the second
overtime period which won
Sthe game for the Sharks. With
15 points from the charity
stripe, the Sharks won by only
one after the two overtime
periods. The Jackets had only
eight points from the free
throw stripe.
, Playing before what was
probably the Sharks' largest
home crowd of the season,
despite the formidable compe-
tition with "Winds of War",
the Sharks were down by 14
big points at the end' of the
first half. Durey Cadwell,
Michael Pittman and Doug
Robinson began to hit for the
Sharks and scored six points
each tonarrow the gap. By the
end of the third period, the
Sharks had picked up eight of
their deficit at halftime.
In the fourth stanza, the
Sharks still kept up their
scoring spree and had the
score tied at the final whistle,
5858 . '
Both teams had a single*
basket in the third period and
Jenkins' two free throws were
the difference in the final
overtime. Jenkins was fouled
in hauling in a rebound of a'
missed Vernon shot.
Doug Robinson paced ;the
Sharks with 18 points. Also
scoring in double figures were
Marty Russ with .15 points,
Josh Jenkins with 11 and
Durey Cadwell with 10.

Off to State Tournament


Port St. Joe High School's grapplers, had
one of their more successful seasons,
according to coach Chris Earley. Earley said
the program had good participation and a
good effort from the boys involved.

travel to Haines City to participate in the'
state tournament. Sidney Harris, left, will
wrestle at 130 pounds and Keith Mork, center,
at 102 pounds. ' '
- Mork has the best record on this year's
team, with 16 wins and only two losses. He is

SMan Talked Out



Of Taking Life


. Some fast talking on the part of Gulf County
Sheriff Ken Murphy and a fast reaction by
Deputy Phil McLeod, are probably the two
reasons James Hurst is alive today.
Monday morning, about 9:35 a.m., James
M. Hurst, age 63, of White City, entered the
courthouse armed with a .22 caliber magnum
rifle and a .38 revolver. Mr. Hurst went to the
" Veterans Service office to demand an
attorney to represent him in a civil case.
S Sheriff Murphy was notified and when he
arrived, Mr. Hurst placed the rifle barrel
S underneath his chin, backed into a corner,
and threatened to take his own life.
Deputies Phil McLeod and James Mock
then arrived on the scene. Sheriff Murphy
continued to try to negotiate with Mr. Hurst,
who was determined not to give up his


weapons and was determined to take his own
life.
After several minutes of talking back and
forth with the Sheriff, Mr. Hurst, at one point,
removed his right hand from the trigger to
make a gesture. At that point, Deputy
McLeod grabbed him from the side, wrestled
him down to the floor, and the officers
disarmed him. Mr. Hurst was placed in
protective custody and was later transferred
to the mental health ward in Panama City for
evaluation.
No one was injured in the incident. Sheriff
Murphy commended his officers and James
Sealey, the Veterans Service officer and
everyone else involved for the calm and
professional way everyone handled the very
dangerous situation.


One Arrested In Knifing


, : Aubrey B. Funchess, Jr., age 36, Panama
i City, was arrested and charged with
aggravated battery in an incident which
occurred at the Wonder Bar on St. Joe Beach
Saturday night.

Murphy, the incident occurred when Henry

SDon't Be Too


Quick to TIri


Damaged Sh


BY ROY LEE CARTER
* County Extension Director
- Don't be too hasty in prun-
-ing cold damaged plants such
as hibiscus, allamanda, poin-
-settia, citrus, rubber plants,
-philadendrons, and others.
-The extent of cold damage in
-many instances, cannot be
distinctly determined until
growth starts in spring. My
*Jinformation. for this article,
S..was provided by"Extension
S Horticulturist Dr. Robert J.
Black.
By pruning now, you may
cut off live wood. Also, the
leaves and stems- that are
dead afford some protection to
that not yet damaged. If you
prune this out. later freezes
may do more damage than
would have been done if the
dead parts were left on the
plant. If you do prune now,
cover the part remaining
during freezing weather to
protect-it.
Although the entire top of
some plants (rubber plants,
philodendron, poinsettia and
others) may have been killed
by freezing, these plants may
send up new shoots from the
roots next spring. Don't write
the' plant off until warm
weather arrives, and they
have a chance to. renew
themselves. "
-Frozen banana stalks and
bird of paradise stems. may be
removed as soon as you can
determine how much is dead.
Banana stalks become brown
and soft when frozen- new
shoots will appear from the
ground next spring. With bird
of paradise there is no true
stem, only leaf stalks. They
will turn brown soon after
freezing. You may remove,
them or leave them for
.protecting the root system
until spring. it is very doubtful
that bird of paradise plants
which were killed back to the
ground will flower next spring
or summer. Following a
freeze, it generally takes from'
12' to 15 months for the plants
to flower again
Freeze damage to citrus is
not easy to determine in its
entirety,; since damage to the
trunk may not show up for
several months following the
cold weather. Trees should be
pruned as soon as possible
after the extent of damage has
been determined. You will
know, as' a' rule, what this
damage is after the second
flush of growth following the
freeze.
It often takes this long for.
freeze damage to the trunk to
show up in the growth of the
plant. In citrus, it is possible to
have limited damage to the
foliage and severe damage to
the trunk. Remember, too,
that most citrus is grafted and,
if the tree is killed back below
where the graft was made, the
new shoots will again have to
be grafted or else you'll get
only small, poor quality fruit
from the rootstock. So, if your
citrus is killed almost to the
ground it will most probably
not grow back to produce the
kind of fruit it formerly
produced.
Damage to azaleas may be
*to flower buds and stems.
Flower bud damage will show
' . up at blooming time (few or
no flowers) and stem damage

by death of branches in late
spring or early summer. Dead
azalea branches should be'
pruned out as they occur..
Camellia damage is probab-
ly confined to flower buds and
leaf burn. Cold. damaged
flower buds will either drop
from the plant or only partial-
ly open showing a brown
center. Leaf damage on ca-
mellias will not be too lasting,
as new leaves will come out in
spring and the old, damaged
ones will drop from the plant.
Keep plants as healthy as
possible and provide as much
protection as you can during
cold weather and chances are
very little pruning of cold


damage plants will be neces-
sary. However, if all your
efforts fail and you lose a
plant, don't become, discour-
aged. From a landscape
standpoint it is better to mix
the hardy and tropical or
tender plants so that the loss
of a few tropical plants will not
destroy the effect of the
landscape planting.

Governor Would Remove Local Control of Lakes


Gov. Bob Graham wants to take
management of the Dead Lakes away-
from the local water-management
board, and. turn it over to a larger,
regional agency, the Northwest Florida
Water Management District, according
to a story in the Tallahassee Democrat
last week
Dick burroughs, a spokesman for- the
-:overnor's office, said last Thursday
S:?: that Graham will ask the next
7 L-: Legislature to abolish the dead Lakes
Water Management Board.
Burroughs' comments came after a
, Gulf County official asked for a


statewide grand jury to investigate
recent appointments by Graham to the
Dead Lakes board.
Gulf Circuit Clerk Jerry Gates, who
also is secretary to the Dead Lakes
Water Management Board, is angry
about what he terms Graham's inter-
vention in the controversy over pro-
posed removal of the Dead Lakes dam
on the Chipola River near Wewa-
hitchka.
In a four-page letter to Attorney
General Jim Smith last week, Gates
said Graham stacked the board to stop
removal of the dam.


"The clerk is making charges thit
are not true," said Burroughs. The
newly'appointed board members, Bur-
roughs said, told him they would
support abolition of the board.
Graham believes the lakes should be
under the jurisdiction 'of a large
regional agency than by "all the
squabbling among) local counties,"
Burroughs said.
"We don't care about the dam, one
way .or the other," said Burroughs,
"but we didn't want any decision made'
on it until the. water-management
district can make it."


Graham notified three members of
the board last month that their terms
had expired and that their appoint-
ments would not be renewed.
That notice, said Gates, reached the
board members only days before they
planned to apply to various state
agencies for permits necessary to
remove the dam.
All three of the newly appointed
members- a majority of the five-
person board-- favor keeping the dam.
The Dead Lakes are' a natural
impoundment of the Chipola River, just
above where the Chipola and Apalachi-


cola rivers join, A dam was built about
1958 to keep more water in the lakes
during prolonged dry spells.
It has come under attack in recent
years by environmentalists, who say it
does not allow normal fluctuation of
water levels in the lake and has
severely hurt fishing both in the lake
and in the Apalachicola River.
Graham did not renew the appoint-
ments of Jim Bozeman and Jerry
Kelley of Gulf County and J. D. Helms.
of Calhoun County.-
The three men were replaced by
Harland 0. Pridgeon, Forest A. Revell,


and William H. Lintori, all of Gulf
County.
Pridgeon, a former Gulf County tax
collector, -is one of the original
promoters of the dam and has
previously served on the Dead Lakes
board.
Gates said all three are related by
blood or marriage to former state Rep.
Cecil Costin, of Port St. Joe, who
introduced a bill in-the 1957 Legislature
to build the dam.
A spokesman for the attorney gener-
al, Don North, said Gates' letter is
under review by Deputy Attorney
General Kendrick Tucker.

the bicentenniel of manned air
and space flight.
I participated in the activities
with President Ronald Reagan
and U.S. Sen. Charles McC
Mathias Jr., (R-Md.), as Chair-
man of the House Committee
on Science and Technology
which has primary jurisdiction
over the nation's aviation and
space research programs.
The bicentennial will be
celebrated in events throughout
th'e nation calling attention to,
the traditional U.S. role as a
leader in development of new
aviation and space
technologies.
The bicentenniel is based on
the first manned flight in a hot
air balloon - which .was , ac-
complishedin- Francein 1783. ?
few months later the same feat
was accomplished by 'a
balloonist in Maryland.
I feel a particular kinship to
our aviation, and space pro-
grams because for 10 critical
years during the development of
the space shuttle I served as
chairman of the Subcommittee
Son.Space Science and Applica-
tions which nurtured the shut-
tle through its lean years. But I
feel the shuttle is just a stepping
stone to even greater ac-
complishments.
As I said during the White
House ceremony:
"Within my lifetime I an-
ticipate -that man will have
adapted to the space environ-
ment within a functional perma-
nent station in space and will be
using that environment for in-
dustrial purposes - many of
which ,we cannot even now
imagine."-

I I Secretary of State George
" I Firestone has announced the
| l .. establishment of a memorial
trust fund to help families of
private security guards and
investigators who are killed in
the line of duty..
Firestone conceived the Ma-
rion Parker Memorial Trust
/ jFund- named for the late
, ^Tallahassee businessman,
philanthropist, state Division
of Licensing executive and
Firestone friend, Marion
Parker- as a way of helping
members of the private se-
, .'/ curity industry. Parker was a
native of Port St. Joe.
"These people have become
an increasingly important
part of our struggle against
crime," Firestone said. "They
supplement the efforts of law
enforcement agencies, often
working long hours in life-
threatening situations for lit-
tle pay."
During the past 10 years, 15
private security officers have
died while on the job.
':"What we're trying to do
here is to show that we
appreciate the 'effort they
make and the risks they take.
ials We want them to know that, if
tragedy strikes, someone will
be there to help ease the
burden,"' Firestone said.,
Firestone established the
d non-profit trust fund by contri-
buting the first $2_000. A
second contribution of $600
was recently made by Flori-
da's Inviestigate and Security
McTrust Political Action. Corn-
mittee (FISTPAC), which had
planned to present an award
and Birmingham are brought o Firestone bt at F-
Into-the jail handcuffed toge- t Fstone's request, made the
their to prevent any untoward contribution tothe -trust fund
activities by these two "des- instead t t
peradoIs". .The trust fund will help the
S' " toahr atS


$50.00 Those locked up had to
cough up or get sponsors to
guarantee the ball to get out. "l
Somehow or other, Gulf Plui
County Sheriff Ken Murphy
was more than eager to
cooperate with this fund rais-
ing project and seemed to get o kes P
a kick out of putting the collar
on Doug Birmingham, Jimmy tok es
Gortman, George Tapper, Bil- -FREE

Dear Mr Branch:
Your inquiry directed to Se-

forwarded to this office for
response.
Approximately one and one-
half inches of the existing
pavement was removed by


milling operations on 6.92
miles 'of this project. Signi-
ficant maintenance problems
arose throughout this area as
the remaining existing pave-
ment deteriorated under nor-
mal traffic conditions. The
contractor was made aware of
these conditions and directed
to properly maintain this;
project as required by the
contract and Standard Specifi-
cations.
This project has been inac-
tive for several weeks as the
contractor has scheduled his'
forces for work on other
projects; however, frequent
inspections are conducted to
insure that the. project is
properly maintained. It is the
opinion of the Department
that the condition of repair of,
this project is satisfactory at
this time.
Recent conversations with
the contractor indicates that
construction operations
should resume on this project
within the next two weeks.
If this office can be of any:
further assistance in this,
matter, please feel free to
contact this office.
Very truly yours,
D. K. Cauley, P.E.

Flea Alert Warning


This year's mild winter in
Florida may be good news for
the tourist industry, but it's
expected to be bad news for
pet owners. A University of
Florida Extension entomolo-
gist predicts an epidemic of
fleas in the state this year.
"Florida generally has the
worst flea problem in the
country, " says Philip G. Koeh-
ler. of UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural. Sciences
(IFAS). "The sandy soils and
warm temperatures are ideal
for flea breeding. Usually,
however, winter cold fronts
move in, we get a hard freeze,
and the flea breeding slows
down. This year we haven't
had those cold temperatures
and there's been a tremendous
population of fleas building up
throughout the state."
Koehler says the flea pepu-
.lation is now so high that even
a hard freeze this late in the
season won't be enough to
prevent an exceptionally ac-
tive year for fleas.
SKoehler adds that one result
of the flea population explo-
sion is that many people who
don't own pets are reporting
flea problems. He says free-
roaming pets and wild ani-
mals are bringing their fleas
into neighboring yards, and
the fleas are transported on
shoes and pant cuffs into
homes, and offices. Cat and'
dog fleas will bite people,
although they don't reproduce
away from the host animal.
Koehler says there are
several precautions pet own-
ers and non-pet owners can
take to cope with the flea
problem.
"First, leash laws should be
enforced to keep animals from
spreading fleas," he says.


"And people should vacuum
the floors regularly to take up'
dust and organic matter
where the flea larvae breed."
"If you have a pet," Koehler
adds, "you probably need to:


use some chemical control in
the house. Dursban is good
because it has a residual
effect, and methoprene is a
growth regulator that pre-
vents breeding."

The Florida Trendline of
economic indicators mea-
sured 115.9 points in October
1982, showing its first upturn
since May, according to fi-
gures just released in the
February issue of "Florida
Trend" business magazine.
However, the October per-
formance continued to be a
mix of good and bad news,
with the monthly performance
two percent below the year-
-ago level. Mining, construc-
tion, utilities, and manufac-
tuiing sectors showed losses,
while agriculture, services
_and finance' showed strong
gains.
Florida's unemployment le-
vel stood at 9.5 percent in
December 1982, compared to
10.5 percent nationally. Dur-
ing the month, 470U000 Flori-
dians were looking for work,
an increase from 350,000 a
year earlier.
Declining interest rates
created a glimmer of hope for
the construction industry,
which saw residential activity
climb 28 percent. "Florida
Trend" reported-a dramatic
63 percent increase in the
number of single-family units
under construction.
The index also showed a two
, percent increase in traffic at
the state's five major airports.
