Phone Company Going Modern March 5
Manufacturer's engineers look on attentively as the
new switchboard system of St. Josephi Telephone and:
Telegraph Company, is programmed in preparation to
taking over the switching duties of the local telephone
company on Saturday night, March 5.
The new switching bank is shown in the background
and takes the place of a huge switching complex which
covers nearly half the phone company building at the
corner of Long Avenue and Fifth Streets.
The new system is completely computerized and is
expected to add many potential services to the local
system, as well as speed up and increase the diversity of
the system operation.
According tq Tim Griffin, an operations executive
with the firm, the new system features almost
instantaneous transfer of a dialed number into the
search operation and will aid in maintenance by
diagnosing its own ills.
The new switchboard is the latest in technology on
the communications market. The new system will
handle calls faster as well as make provision for more
lines to be installed. -Star photo
The Gulf. County Commis-
sion unanimously and with no
time wasted on frivolous dis-
cussion, asked their Legisla-
tive delegation to ask Gover-
nor Bob Graham to back off in
his intention to relinquish the
Dead Lakes Management
Committee of its local control
over the body of water. t
On a motion, made by
Commissioner Doug Birming-
ham, the Commission got
right to the point and instruct-
ed their attorney, William J,.
Rish to draw up a resolution to
be sent to Representative
James Harold Thompson and
Senator Dempsey Barron to
oppose turning over control of
the Dead Lakes to the North-,
west Florida Water Manage-
ment Commission. Informa-,
lion out of the Governor's
office last week was that this
was the Governor's intention
for the future of the Dead
Lakes and that the controver-
sial appointment of a, new
Dead Lakes committee was
made with the understanding
that their services would be
short-livegl: just long enough
to transfer contr0olof the lakes
over to Water Management..
In making his motion, Bir-
mingham stated he was taking
no sides on the issue of
whether or not to remove the
dam at the south end of Dead
Lakes, but he was taking the
issue of believing the question
was one to be, decided by the

Seeks Payment for
S-, Damages In Suit
from 1981 Fatal Accident aS!
Damages of an undisclosed
amount are being sought from
the insuror of the City of Port
St. Joe in a case in Circuit
Court this week. The damages
are being asked for as the
result of the death of Robert
Earl Davis, 69, in a collision
between a pick-up truck he
was driving and a City fire
Davis was killed in the
accident on February 24, 1981,
when the two vehicles collided
at the intersection of High-
ways 98 and 71. Another
victim in the accident was
Leroy Davis, Jr., now four
years old, who was paralyzed
from the shoulders down. A
-suit for damages in this case is
still to come to court.
James Graves, the volun-
teer fireman-who was driving
the truck- at the time of the
accident, and also a veteran
Port St. Joe police officer,
testified Tuesday that he
looked both ways as he
approached the intersection
and started making his left
turn into Highway 98. Graves
said both the siren and red
light on the truck were operat-
ing and that he saw no
oncoming traffic as he turned
into the intersection.
Leroy Davis, another pas-
senger in the pick-up truck
said he saw no red lights nor
heard a siren as they ap-
proached the intersection. A
second motorist, driving be-
hind the Davis truck, said she
saw no lights nor heard a siren
either, but admitted she could
have been distracted by chil-
dren in her car.
Other witnesses said the
siren and red lights were

Florida Highway Trooper S.
R. Rogers, who investigated
the accident said Tuesday, he
felt the fire truck driver had
made a mistake when he
turned into the intersection.
Rogers said that in his opinion
he felt the fire truck followed
improper procedure in going
through the intersection.
Trooper Rogers also testi-
fied that Davis was travelling
an e.stmated 40 miles per
hour, five miles ever the speed
limit at the intersection, and
that he, Davis, could have
taken some evasive action to
avoid at least some of *the
severity of the impact.
Estimates Wednesday at
noon, when The Star went to
press were that the trial would
in all likelihood continue over
$1,000 as the first installment toward a
perpetual scholarship fund at Gulf Coast
Community College. Looking on is Dr. Linda
Dare, dean of students at Gulf Coast.
They wouldn't recommend it for everybody, but Willard
and Brenda Richards of Port St. Joe are happy with their,
triplets born in a Bay County hospital last week. The triplets
were only the third set born to Port St. Joe parents in the past
40 years.' ,
Mrs. Richards went.into the delivery room expecting to
have twins and wound up with three baby boys weighing a
total of 16 pounds, nine and 3 ounces. Alex Ted weighed in at
five pounds, eight and three-quarters ounces, Adam Monroe
balanced the scales at five pounds, three and a half ounces
and Aaron Gene-came in at a hefty five pounds, 13 and a half
The babies are now at home with their parents in their
Highland View home and all the family has gathered to lend a
hand with their care. According to Mrs. Richards Tuesday,
the triplets are no bother at night. "They have a schedule",
she said, "and they pretty well stick to it."
The only problem with the entire situation is that
Richards, who works at St. Joe Container, hasn't worked in
nearly a year. He was laid off in March of last year and
hasn't been called back yet.
The Richards also have another son, Jacob, who is five
years old and 'takes his turn holding one of the babies.
Back in 1946, Port St. Joe welcomed a set of triplets,
when Mr. and Mrs. Bascom Williams experienced the birth
of triplet girls, weighing a total of 17 pounds in Municipal
Hospital. One of the girls, Mrs. Linda Cox, still lives in Port
St. Joe on Palm Boulevard.
On February 21, 1963, Mr. and Mrs. Sherrill Hartley had
triplets, also at Municipal Hospital. The Hartleys, their two
boys and a girl, now live in Wewahitchka. The Hartleys have
had another son since the birth of the triplets.

Birmingham said he felt the

to make and explain his

which'has come to light. I have never
seen a need quite so serious, quite so
important nor quite so neglected as this
one. This particular need has gone far
beyond being a simple emergency. It is
now an emergency, red alert!
I am sure you will agree with me,
when I- reveal this particular bit of
stall around much longer, thinking the
situation will take care of itself, I am
fearful we will wait around until the
field gets TOO white unto harvest It is
getting dangerously close to that point
charitable attention which is needed.
-Once you see the problem, I'm sure you
will'agree with me on the solution.
The big problem is -
Harry Lee Smith needs to get
married and I am hereby committing
myself to helping find him a wife. I hope
you will join with me. The need is real.
The need is of an emergency nature.
The field is very evidently "white unto
harvest" in Harry Lee's case. If we
had sent.me for, when, lo and behold, I
ran into Harry Lee.
Knowing Harry Lee didn't have.

each and every day.
WHAT BROUGHT ALL this on?
What made me arrive at the conclusion
that Harry Lee needed to get married?
What ultimately convinced me that he
needed a helpmeet?
The revelation came about in
almost an innocent manner. The other
day I was in one of the grocery stores in
town, after a couple of items my wife
or a box of corn flakes I asked Harry
Lee, in a perfectly innocent manner,
"What are you doing in the grocery
Harry Lee, evidently thinking a
good offense is better than a good
defense, shot back with, "Well what are
you doing in here?"
I had a perfectly good excuse for
being in the grocery store. I said, "My
wife sent me after four grapefruit and
there's no better reason around for
being in a grocery store".
Harry Lee looked around to see who
was watching or listening, then leaned
close to my good ear, placed his right
hand at his mouth in a cupped fashion
and said in a low, hoarse voice, with a
trace of a sob in it, "I don't have a wife
to send me to the store. I sneaked in
when nobody was looking!"
I ASK YOU, ISN'T that pitiful?
When a man has to sneak around to get
to go into the grocery store once in a
while, it is time for someone to take
That's what I'm doing: taking
action before it is too late. Harry Lee
Smith needs a wife now. He'll soon be
too old to go sneaking into grocery
stores, or taking his own clothes to the
laundromat, or deciding on his own
what color shirt to wear on a given day,
or to take it on his own initiative to pick
his dirty underwear up out of the floor.
Such an existence is too. much for
any man. I would hate to look in Harry
Lee's bedroom right now. If I didn't
know how "conservative" he was, I
would be afraid a mountain of dirty
underwear, shirts and socks would flow
out and cover me up if I were to open
the door, since there's nobody to tell
him to pick it up every morning. As itis,
I know Harry Lee isn't going to hold
still for buying a new pair of
underwear, socks or a shirt every day
so he can have a clean one.
When a man gets so desperate he
nearly cries -in the super market
because he had no one to send him
there, things are getting pretty bad.
If we don't all get busy right quick
and find Harry Lee a wife to take care
of these necessary things for him, I'm
afraid we're going to lose Harry Lee.
Then, who would we pick on?
SO, I'M ASKING YOU now; please
join with me and put your undivided
attention to the task of finding a wife for
I'm hereby pledging to you that I
will riot rest in the matter, until Harry
Lee rents that tuxedo and puts a fresh

Q. Are there advantages, oth-
er than cosmetic, to, wear-
ing contact lenses instead
A. Since contact lenses are fit
directly on the cornea, they
provide visual corrections
that are more natural. We
see objects truer to their
actual size. Since contacts
move with the eyes, there
are no distortions of peri-
pheral vision when looking
sideways. Side vision is fur-
ther improved because it is
not obstructed by the tern-'
pie of the eyeglass frame.
If the lens correction re-
quired for each eye is con-
siderably different, contact
lenses provide the best way
for allowing the eyes to
work as a team. Studies
have also shown that, in
some myopic patients, the
acceleration -of near-
sightedness, is slowed by

A. Generally, less frequently

It's Time to Prune Many Small Trees, Shrubs
BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Late winter and early spring
is the time to prune many
shrubs and small trees in the
yard. Shrubs that bloom in
summer and fall generally
develop flowers or current
season's growth and should be
pruned before the first flush of
growth in the spring. Shrubs
that bloom in the spring or
winter should be pruned im-
mediately after flowering has
finished. Pruning is practiced
to maintain plant health,
control plant growth, and
encourage flowering and fruit-
ing. These objectives should
be remembered as you prune.
My information for this article
was provided by Extension
Horticulturist Dr. Robert J.
Pruning should encourage
plant health, not plant disease.
Therefore, it is important to,
prune properly using the
correct pruning tools. For
general cleanup hand pruning.
shears are used, loopers may-
be used for branches up to one
inch, a pruning saw can be
I;used for larger branches,.and
y. hedge shears should be used to
trim closely clipped hedges
only. All tools should be kept
sharp. Sharp tools not only cut
easier but will not bruise the
plant tissue. Bruising the
plant causes slower healing of
the wound and causes an
increase in the probability of
-A clean cut should be made.
This means the cut surface
should have a smooth surface,
not a rough one that looks as if
the tissue has been torn or
pulled. Care should be taken
not to injure the plant around
the cdt, or rip or tear the bark
above or below the cut. The
combium layer, a thin layer of
cells just below the. -bark
which is important in wound
healing, is easily injured. Do
not twist or turn the shears as
you cut because you will
injure the plant as well as your
Painting the wounds with
tree wound dressing has lately
become a controversial prac-,
tice. The standard recom-
mendation has been to paint
all the wounds over one inch in
diameter with a quality tree
wound dressing to protect the
cut surface from woodrotting
organisms and checking (ra-
dial cracking) upon drying.
Some research has shown
that upon exposure to the sun,
the protective coating often
cracks, and moisture enters
the cracks and accumulates in
pockets that may occur be-
tween the woodrotting or-
ganisms than one with no
wound cover. However, in
situations where aesthetics
are important, the practice is
justified. If a pruning wound is
to be protected, allow it to dry
before applying the dressing.
This will improve chances of
good bonding. Examine the
coating several times the first
year. Retreat if the coating
Chipped hedges require a
specialized type of pruning
and may become a continuous
job during the growing season.
There are two important
factors to remember about
clipped hedges. The hedge
should be clipped while the
new growth is green and
succulent. Also, the plant
should be trimmed so that the
base of the hedge is wider than
the top so that light can reach
the lower leaves.
Unless a shrub is a topiary,
espalier, or part of a formal
hedge it should not be closely
clipped but allowed to develop
into a naturalistic form. This
does not mean that the plant
should be left alone, but that
purning is done to enhance the
natural beauty of the plant.
The first step in pruning is to
remove all dead, diseased, or
injured branches. Once this is
done it may be necessary to
thin out the plant. Remove
branches that cross each other
or they will obviously become
entangled. If the shrub. still
looks too thick remove some of
the older branches. Remove
any branches that are distinct-
ly different from the rest of
the shrub. Cut back excessive-
ly long growth to a bud that is
four to six inches below the
average branch length. If you
wish to reduce the size of the
shrub cut back each branch
four to six inches, to a new
bud. Do not use hedge shears
but cut each branch separate-
