Production Inches Down


In Port St. Joe This Week


With the rest of the nation experiencing
an economy and factory production which is
inching up, factories in Port St. Joe took an
inch step backward this week, with one plant
laying off workers and St. Joe Paper
Company, the largest employer in the county,
announcing a shut down of its paper mill.
The paper mill. announced the middle of
the week that its ,mill here ih Port St. Joe
would shut down tomorrow, Friday,' for a
period. of needed maintenance, repairs and
inventory adjustments The shut down would
last for from two to three weeks, according to
the announcement. '
This is the second time the mill has been
shut down this year, after almost having to
cease operations two weeks ago, when heavy
rains in the area curtailed wood deliveries to
the point of the mill operating on the last bit of
wood in the yard before they gained some
relief.


A derailment east of Apalachicola last
week on the Apalachicola Northern Railroad
and blocking the rail line into Port St. Joe for
about two days didn't help matters either.'
Rail shipment of wood was halted for a while.
BASIC SLOWDOWN
Basic, Inc., a manufacturer of a major
ingredient used in steel mill furnace fire
.brick, has had itsproblems for nearly a year,
with only a skeleton crew on duty much of last
year. '
Early this year, the firm re-hired almost
a full crew the first of January, when the
plant's order situation picked up.
Last week, the plant reduced its force by
13 men as a temporary measure.
A plant spokesman told The Star, "Our
situation should be better this year The steel
picture is getting brighter, but it just hasn't
filtered down to us as yet"

Dead Lakes

: Newly elected Dead Lakes Water Management
District chairman William Linton tried to wield an iron
hand over what he termed "an organizational meeting"
of the Committee last Friday morning, in the Port St.
Joe Branch of the public library, 'but the audience,
heavily in favor of removing the Dead Lakes dam, kept
bringing Linton and the committee back to that point.
' "We're here to get this committee going and then we
will hear from the audience", Linton told the visitors
which filled the Library meeting room, but they would
have none of that. Every time one of them had'half a
chance, he jumped right in with wanting an explanation
as to why the committee couldn't go ahead and remove
the dam.
As an opening statement after he was named by his
fellow board members to chair the committee, Linton
stated: "I am not obsessed with taking it (the dam) out
or leaving it in." Even expressing this attitude, he took
several opportunities to point a derogatory finger at "the
old committee" which he identified as being "obsessed
- with taking it out". .
All. the members of the Committee have. been
appointed this year by Governor Bob Graham, replacing
the entire incumbent committee. One of the members,
Harland Pridgeon, who is not exactly a stranger with the
Dead Lakes and its operation, tried to smooth the waters
of controversy by saying he was in favor of conducting a
study .of the lakes. "I'll vote to tear it out if the study
shows 'its necessary. I just thought the previous board
was wrong in trying to move so fast to get rid of the dam.
I want all the information I can get",, Pridgeon said.
Pridgeon then pointed a question at .secretary-
treasurer Jerry Gates, who serves the Committee in that
capacity under the language of the bill which created the
district and asked, "Can he serve in this office without
conflict?"
Chairman Linton fielded the question and wanted to
examine the act to see if the Committee could hire its
choice for the position. He then asked Gates if he could
serve without conflict.
Gates told Linton, "There's no problem there. I'm
proud to do it. It's part of my duty and the law provides,
for me to serve."

Gates drew the fire of the committee members
because he had been highly vocal in the past for
removing the dam. He had also presided over a
meeting the previous night in Wewahitchka, to


Committee Organizes After AStruggle
' ,:rgnie :
h ", �.s 1"1"1: 0 1 l ' -


Dead Lakes Water Management Committee members Harland Pridgeon, chairman committee going. Dr. Raymond Lane of Blountstown, was absent.
William Linton, Secretary Jerry Gates, Tommy Williams and Forest Revell meet to get the


form a committee whose purpose will be to
promote and actively seek removal of the Dead
Lakes dam.
The Board members felt he had a conflict of
interest in the matter, but Gates said this would not
prevent him from doing his job as secretary-trea-
surer for the committee. "We all want the same
thing . . . to restore good fishing to the Dead
Lakes", Gates said.


Linton then plowed ahead with the business of
"organizing" in spite of attempts from the audience to
draw the Committee into a discussion of what to do about
the dam. Linton said, "We need to hire a lawyer", then
he removed Hentz McClellan from that post where he
had been serving for the past year.
Tommy Williams, one of the two new members from
Blouhtstown, cast the first of several "no" votes at that
point, voting against the dismissal of McClellan.

Forest Revell made a motion that Pat Floyd, a Port
St. Joe attorney, be named to the post and Floyd was
approved. Linton again ran into difficulty with the
audience over the manner in which he was handling the
meeting, with shouts that he wasn't doing the
chairmanship job "legally".
Linton, who had been doing a superb job of keeping
his cool, snapped, "We're going to replace the secretary

; A Need
; ,. I
There is a person in Bay County
who is intent on trying ,to get the
h3reenbelt tax status removed from
large land holders, who are using the
lands they own to grow pine trees.
According to this person, who
happens to be a real estate develop-
er, this is taking unfair advantage of
S the person who has to pay a high tax
Srite for his land which he is
developing every day so he can
* take more money on it.
We have no quarrel with a
- prson making money. We have no
barrell with a man being dissatisfied
T with his tax bracket. If you listen
hard enough, there are very -few
persons who think they are being
, treated fairly by the tax collector. In
Seven fewer cages,, the property
,owner may feel he is getting a real
break with his tax rate. In most
, cases, the property owner feels put
upon and thinks he is supporting half
the county with the tax he pays.
This particular developer in Bay
z County was pointing his finger at St.
SJe Paper Company and Southwest
Forest Industries - especially St.
Joe Paper -- because they own land
j adjacent to a tract he was develop-
ing. Reading between the lines, it
, was evident the developer wasn't
making as much money as he
wanted to with his present develop-
I ment, so he wanted some of St. Joe
Paper's land to turn into more

be the result? Who would be the

- ,The people in charge of such
things tell us that both the United
States and Russia now own enough
unclear bombs to blow each other
up. If we were to use all our bombs
on Russia, there would be no Russia
left. If Russia were to use all their
bombs on us, there would be no U.S.
lft.

' their bombs? There are no tangible
assets to gain from an all-out attack

development and make more mon-
ey. In order to get this land, he was
going to have to get it taxed at a
higher rate, thus forcing St. Joe
Paper to sell, since they would no
longer be able to keep it and harvest
a crop of pulpwood off it every 20
years. ..
"The developer claimed the land
wasn't being farmeded, thus didn't
deserve the greenbelt tax rate.'
Were the person to-be successful
in his venture, it takes very little
imagination to realize that in just a
short time St. Joe Paper Company
and Southwest , Forest Industries
would have to 'shut down their
operations for lack' of raw material.
Then, they would be in the same
position as, the developer. There
would be a pile of money out there to
be made, but it would be almost
impossible to make it without any
raw material. The developer needs
land - to' develop, The paper
company needs land - to grow pine,
trees.
'Without the pine trees, it is
almost impossible to make paper.
Without paper being made, there'
would be a lot of people out of work.
Without work, a breadwinner finds it
almost impossible to buy one those
new, modern homes that developer
is building, making that property
next door useless to him in the long
run.


out People

If we both have enough bombs to
blow the other up, what is the sense
in making more? After we or they
have obliterated the other, are they
going to do it again? Even though
there is nothingg left to bomb?
'": 'Wffi -" we get dow 't6 the
analysis of the situation, how can we
expect a nation which cannot
manage to balance its expenditures
with its income to have a common-
sense approach about such a thing
.as an atom bomb? How can we
expect a nation which is so busy
giving its attentidh to building tanks
and warships it can't find the time or
energy to devg.p 'the nation's
capability to grow enough food to
feed its people, to have any rational
thoughts about what to do with an
annihiliation device which can end
all life on earth?
We don't worry about numbers.
It is a waste of money to build more,
but when we have enough bombs in
existence to wipe out the human
race, we had better start to worrying
about what kind of people are in
control of those bombs rather than
get grey hairs about who has how
many.


In this fast moving world of
high finance and expensive
gifts,-it is still the little things
that mean. the 'most. If you:.
don't believe me just check it_
out with the kids. Children,
you know, are the. truth
walking and when it comes to,
real emotion they will always
come through with the stark,
naked truth!
It was Christmas two years
ago .when' we planned our
biggest Christmas yet. The
wife and I spent considerable
time planning what we would
get each child. It was a stereo
for the oldest (fourteen at the
time), plus an assortment of
smaller, less expensive gifts
"Daddy's Little Girl" didn't
ask for too much but she found
a little more under the tree
than expected. The youngest
and most active received his
usual assortment of demoli-
tion toys that we later regret-
ted buying. It all added up to
much more than either of us
could have ever imagined
receiving as a child. Like most
parents, we wanted them to
have more than we had,
especially at Christmas.

point.
SEND NOTICES
The Commission agreed
Tuesday night, to send out
notices of violation of City
.Ordinance to the occupant of
the property at the corner of
Woodward Avenue and First
Street, giving the occupant 30 '
days to clean up the refuse on I
the property or face .'court
action.
A similar notice had already
been issued for a .person
blocking the alley with debris
between Long and Williams
Avenues.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
The Commission:
-Awarded a bid for a
pick-up truck to St. Joe Motor
Company, the low bidder. St.
Joe Motor bid $7,334 01.
-Awarded a bid to Hide-A-
Way Harbor Marine at Mexico
Beach to provide a boat trailer
for the Wastewater Treatment
Plant at a cost of $1,145.
- A bid for pipe to install
three new fire plugs in North
Port St. Joe came in so high,
the Commission decided to
delay the project until the new
budget in October to include
the financing in the new fiscal
plan.


It took a lot of trips to town
to gather all those Holiday
Delights. And it was done with
loving care and consideration,
by my wife, God bless her
heart. Expense was no consi-
deration because we wanted
this to be the most unforget-
table Christmas ever. We
could hardly wait to see their
innocent little faces when we
called them hurriedly down to
the den on Christmas morn-


ing.
Almost as an afterthought
we decided to add a little spice
to the Season. We would get
our daughter the little kitten
she had always wanted but
had never had. It didn't take
much scouting to find a little
kitten. As a matter of fact, we
still get calls offering us little
kittens. There are more cats
in the world than people, I
believe.


Anyway, Christmas morn-
ing I woke up early, as I
usually do, went outside and
brought the kitten in the house
and put it.tenderly under the
Christmas tree. I then woke up
the kids.
When they came stumbling
down the stairs the sound
startled the kitten and he (I
ain't crazy- it was a HE)
dashed across the room. The
cat was Christmas for about
three hours. Except for the
oldest, we could not get them
interested in their other gifts
until mid-morning.
The cat was free. The gifts
under the tree cost more
than...well, they cost enough
that I was about to become
enraged. But I didn't.
The three most treasured
gifts I have ever received are
a shoe holder my son made for


me, an indoor-outdoor thermo-
meter my sister presented' to
me on my birthday and, more
than anything, the books my
wife will buy for me from time
to time for no other reason
than she is thinking about me.
They are not elaborate or
expensive gifts by anyone's
standard, but they mean a lot
to me and none of them are for
sale.
Please do not mistake what
I am saying. I am not opposed
to expensive gifts. If, by
chance, there'is someone out
there that has something of an
expensive nature that you just
have a cravin' to give to
someone, please feel' free to
drop-it by my house. If you
can't come by, call and I'll
come to your house and pick it
up.
Big things mean a lot, too!!!


-Making M

DON'T ASK ME how I manage to
do it. It seems to come easy. As often as
I do it it has to be easy.
:' : But, I don't do it intentionally. Each
and every one of the numerous times it
iiappens, it is an accident or an
oversight.
I'm talking about making errors.
SIdo it. I admit it. I can make those
'.--ors and it seems like I don't even
'.ia" e to try - at. least not too hard.
-']Before you say it, I want to
"nterject that the reason I make the
errors is not because I'm not trying
Shard enough -- not to.
. It's not even adequate comfort for
me to read that old cliche that goes sort
of like this-: The only person who does
nothing wrong is the person who is
doing nothing.
S Sometimes I had rather be doing
nothing rather than be doing something
arid doing the things wrong I have done.
S* I' have pulled some beauts.
-; �The problem is that when I get
.s..tarted doing things wrong, I can't
,seem to quit until I have made a mess
which would last the average person for
some weeks at a time.

stakes Can Teach A Lot, but It's No Fun Being Reminded


CONSIDER THE ONE I pulled last
week.
In the paper last week, I was going
to be real informative, and print a
conspicuous box near the top of the


time" meetings and would probably set
the tone for the future of the Dead
Lakes in some manner or other.
Here was a first meeting for the
new Dead Lakes Management commit-


error in reading proof
That error wasn't so bad; it was
only an hour off What's an hour
between friends, anyhow'
+ + +


the former Dead Lakes committee had
said they advocated doing. The com-
mittee was rallying the people around
their flag of dam removal, if they
wanted to rally for this cause, and I
reported the rally meeting for the
wrong day.
I called the meeting for Friday
night, at 7:00, p.m. CST (at least I got
the time right).
The meeting was actually held, in
spite of my trying to change the date, on
Thursday night.
The advertisement about the meet-
ing on the inside pages had the correct
date and was the basis for setting the
type about the meeting itself.
So, how could I get the date wrong?
It was apparently easy, since I
don't recall going to any extra lengths
to get the date wrong. I just glanced at
the calendar to see what day March 10
was and it came out of the typesetter as
Friday. It was easy.
Making a mistake is no problem at
all. Correcting them after they have
been made is the trick. It's almost like
trying to eat soup with a fork.


Or chitlins' without making a face.
I DO LEARN something everytime
I make a mistake. It's a painful and
unwelcome lesson, but I do learn
something.
First, I learn each and every time I
make a mistake, that each successive
mistake I make that particular day will
be on the same subject, every time.
I also learn that The Star covers a
lot of territory between the bay and that
imaginary line just north of Wewa,
called the county line.
The telephone rings off the hook
with, "Was that story supposed to read.
.." By the time'the tenth caller calls, I
can answer the question with the first
word out of the receiver.
I was in Jerry Gates office for 10
minutes last Thursday and the phone
rang six times while I was there with
people wanting, "Wasn't that meeting
supposed to be . . ."
++ +
I WON'T SAY I will not make
another mistake, because that would be
the biggest mistake I would ever make.
I'll just say, I'll try to keep them to a
minimum.

tant meetings of the week end concern-

Dead Lakes has been in the news lately

public service for me to do in putting

Mixing sacred hymns and
contemporary music with
equal capabilities, "His Am-

program of music, testimony
of God's love, and evidence of












' .


the happiness you can find by
knowing Jesus..Christ. The
relaxed and low-key atmos-
phere of their fine musical
program makes "His Ambas-

experience in concert:
The Long ,Avenue Baptist.
Church Praise Choir will
present a musical entitled
"The Crimson Bridge" on
Sunday, March 27 at 7:00
P.M., and again .on Monday,
March 28 at 7:00 P.M. The
uniqueness of this program
will be the choir singing from
a "Living Cross" over 26 feet


long and 12 feet high. Special
effects in -lighting and music
as well as the beautiful
narration done by the Pastor,
Dr. Daniel Duncan, promises
to make this a very special
worship service.
You will not want to miss
these excellent musical mini-
stries, so make your plans now
to see and hear "His Amb'as-
sadors" 'on Sunday, 'March 20
at 11:00 A.M. and "The Living
Cross" on'Sunday, March 27 at

Five Port St. Joe High
School students were recently
selected to attend a Presiden-
tial Classroom for Young
Americans in Washington, D.'
C. Participating were: James
Randall Brown, Stacy Ann
Creel, Tonya Michelle Cross,
Tamara Lynn Roberson, and
Bonita A. Robinson.
A. Presidential Classroom
for Young Americans is a
unique program for high,
school juniors and seniors.
The seminars conducted dur-
ing . the week-long session
brought a cross-section of
outstanding student leaders
together with leading U.S.
government policy-makers in
Washington, D.C.
During their stay in the
Nation's Capital, participants
studied the three branches of
government and the impact of
special interest groups, the
military, the diplomatic com-
munity, and the media on the
government. This year's clas-
ses have met with such
influential officials as Senator
Bill Bradley (New Jersey);
RepresentativeJack Edwards
(Alabama); General E. C.
Meyer, Chief of Staff of the
United States Army; Mr. Lem


Tucker. CBS News Correspon-
dent; Mr. Robert Ormsby,
President of Lockheed-Geor-
gia; Mr. William Lucy, Inter-
national Secretary-Treasurer
of the American Federation of
\ State, County and Municipal
SEmployees; Judge Irene Fa-
gin Scott of the U.S. Tax
Court; Ambassador Esteban
Arpad Takacs from Argen-
tina; Ambassador J. William
Middendorf II, U.S. Ambassa-
dor to the Organization of
American States; and Pearl
Bailey, former United Nations
Goodwill Ambassador.
The Classroom provides the
impetus for students to de-
velop their own opinions on
issues of concern by exposing
them to the divergent views of
the people who comprise the
political leadership in Wash-
ington, D.C. The program also
affords student leaders the
opportunity to interact wtih
their peers from all parts of
'the nation to learn about the
similarities and differences of
the American people.
A Presidential Classroom
for Young Americans is an
independent, nonprofit, non-
partisan educational organ-
zation. Over 30,000' students,.

Parents Major


SFactor In


-Guiding Child


- "Until parents set goals for
their children to strive for and"
encourage and. guide them
.toward that goal, the result of
12 years in school will be less
than satisfying", Superinten-
dent of Schools Walter Wilder
told the Rotary Club Thurs-
day.
Listing discipline and de-
velopment of a sense of
purpose at home, the Superin-
tendent identified this as the
biggest problem in the educa-
tion of youths today.
Going down a list of five
major problems faced by,
education today, Wilder point-
ed the most accusing finger at,
the home stating, "We have
them for six hours a day, five
days a week. The remainder
of the time, they are the
responsibility of their parents
and a product of their home
life".
The Superintendent said the
suspected state-wide shortfall
in,income.-of some $400 -mil-
lion for the field of education
would affect the, Gulf County
district in its budgeting for
next year. "We will probably
experience some more staff
cuts, but it will be from a
Reduction of student load as'
much as from reduced state
money'. Wilder went on to say
most of the staff reduction
would be realized through


Alabama and Georgia, giving
those states a stronger inter-
est than Florida in barge
transportation on the ACF
Waterway.
T'ri-Rivers president, R. H.
McSwean of Abbeville, Ala-
bama, said the study on which
the job figures were based did
not include agriculture or
indirect jobs outside the tri-
state area.
He said the price area
farmers pay for fertilizer and
soybeans, corn and wheat are
also affected by channel con-
ditions.
McSwean said the associa-
tion has strong hopes the
secretary will act in behalf of
the river users.
"We think the law is on our
side," McSwean said. "And
our attorneys have done a
good job of researching and
presenting the legal points."
He said the State of Florida
is currently withholding an
important permit for channel
improvements which the Flor-
ida Department, of Environ-


mental Regulation studied for
a year and found to be
harmless.
Gov. Joe Frank Harris and
Alabama Gov. George Wal-
lace have written the secre-
tary asking him to grant the
petition, and the Decatur
County Board of Commissio-
ners has adopted a resolution
supporting the move.


attrition rather than releasing
personnel from their jobs..
During his address, Wilder
touched on many . subjects
which are in the news concern.
ing education today.
The speaker pointed out that
the testing program would
take effect this year, with
issuing of diplomas depending
on whether or not the student
passes the literacy test: "The
test is-very easy and if a kid is
expecting a diploma for his
years in school, he should at
least have absorbed this much
knowledge."
Wilder said he saw future
problems in funding, and the
personnel to staff the'increas-
ed interest in science and
higher math classes. "We
have five students graduating
from Florida schoolsL this
year, qualified to teach
'science and two who will be
qualified to teach physics."
In spite of the uncertainty of
funding, the eroding of family
life, problems with curricu-
lum, laxity in discipline and
other common "gripes" with.
the school system today, the
superintendent predicted, "I
feel certain the young people'
of today going out into the
world are adequately equip-
ped and motivated to maintain
our society as we know it."


Governor Appoints Two

More to Dead Lakes Board


Two Youths

Are Arrested
Two young men were ar-
rested by'Sheriff's Depart-
ment Lt. Jack. Davilla and
charged with dealing in stolen
property, according to infor-
mation received from the Gulf
County Sheriff's office.
Davilla arrested Terry
Woullard, 18, of Port St. Joe
and a 17-year-old juvenile in
connection with the charge
which involved two stolen high.
school class rings.
According to. Davilla, two
rings, valued at a total of
$425.00 were allegedly taken
from school lockers last week.


Governor Bob Graham ap-
pointed Tommie Williams and
Raymond Layrie, Jr., both of
Blountstown, to the Dead
Lakes Water Management
District last week.
Williams, 39, is employed
with Elliott Communications.
He is a member of the
Blountstown Rotary Club.
Layne, 35, is a dentist. He
received a bachelor's degree
from Florida State University
in 1971 and a doctor of
dentistry from Emory Uni-
versity in 1975.
Both new appointees have
their terms expire in January
1987.
The appointments fills all
five positions of the Dead
Lakes Board.
"Consistency is the last re-
fuge of the unimaginative."

(Bainbridge is in Decatur
County.)
Supportive resolutions have
also been adopted by boards of
county commissioners in
Houston, Henry, Barbour and
Russell counties in Alabama
and Clay, Dougherty, Early,
Mitchell, Muscogee, Randolph
and Quitman counties in
Georgia.

' too, if we can legally do it".
As his first act, Floyd advised the Committee they
couldn't replace the secretary, but they could hire an
assistant, which they did. Mrs. Dorothy Taylor, a retired
civil service secretary, offered to do the job free. Again
Williams expressed his "no" vote.
Linton then told Gates the committee would like a
complete breakdown of the financial matters of the
committee by the next meeting. Gates replied that
George Core had been employed many years ago as
treasurer of the Committee and was still serving in that
capacity. "I will have him work up a report and I will
have all records of the Committee at the next meeting
:: for you to examine", Gates replied.
-.. - All of this, took nearly two hours, with constant .
conversation sessions with the audience and arguments
back and forth. Finally, the Committee decided to
adjourn their meeting after setting up a regular meeting


schedule to meet on the last Thursday of each month at
6:30 local time, rotating the meetings between
Blountstown, Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe. The next
meeting would be held on March 31 at the Calhoun
County Courthouse in Blountstown.
In the meantime, the Committee will be active in
trying to get the area closed to fishing 'around the gates
and dam because,~of the danger involved and to
determine ownership of the land involved.
The Committee also agreed to replace the fourth
gate in the drawdown structure and fix the gates so they
can be opened 'and closed. The gates will be opened
during the shellcracker bedding season so the fish can
get upstream to spawn. .
Chairman Linton suggested the committee with-
draw an application to remove the dam, which has been
filed with state agencies. The remainder of the. Board
over-ruled Linton, saying, "let the process proceed so
the public hearings can be held and get a clear-cut
opinion of how the general public feels about the
question."
The public hearings for the question have not been
scheduled as yet,

few that are frequently prescribed by physicians ...
These drugs, day in and day out, are saving lives,
curing illnesses and alleviating pain. As long as they
are considered effective they will continue to occupy a

Local Offices Crack Down


Curb Food Stamp Fraud


Recent changes in the Food
Stamp Program are making it
more difficult for persons
receiving food stamps ,to re-
ceive stamps by supplying
fraudulent information.
In an effort to curb fraudu-
lent reporting of income by
persons participating in the
Food Stamp Program, the
Gulf County Food Stamp
Offices located at 224A Reid
Avenue, Port St. Joe, and the
Old Courthouse in Wewahitch-
ka now have access to infor-
mation from the Department
of Labor. Each office is
receiving a monthly listing of
the earned income being re-
ceived by each food stamp
household member, from the
computer which records all
employment in the State. In
addition to earned income, the
list also includes any pay-
ments received from unem-
ployment compensation,
workmen's compensation and
State Retirement.
The information from the
Department of Labor files
does not replace the responsi-

CROSSED EYES


Q. Sometimes my two-year
old's right :eye turns out.
while ' his left eye looks
directly forward., Is he
cross-eyed?.
A. Your son is exhibiting 'a
primary symptom of stra-
bismus,, the technical
term for crossed eyes. By
the age of two, the eyes
should be aligned, so that,
they work as a team. Has
he been ill? Sometimes at
high fever causes a weak-
ness to develop in the mus-
cle coordination which
controls the eye's ability
to "aim". Crossed eyes
are generally not bout-'
- grown, and early treat-
ment prevents vision pro-
blem. Your son should
have a complete op-
tometric eye examination
now.
Q. Are there specific vision
conditions that causes
eyes to cross? ;
A. The most common are:
1. Excessive farsighted-
ness.
2. One farsighted and one
nearsighted or normal
eye. (The brain cannot
cope with two such
dissimilar images, and
teaches itself to ignore
the image received
from one eye. The ig-
nored eye begins to
wander out, in or up
and down.)
Q. What is the safest way to
correct crossed eyes?
A. Glasses or vision training,
or a combination of both,
are the safest ways to cor-.
rect strabismus. Surgery
should be considered only
when the other methods
are ineffective.

three out of a set of four
baseball games last week end,
including a 23-9 drubbing of
Havana on one end of a double
header Saturday afternoon.

two hits off winning pitcher,
Tony Beard which they added
to two Shark errors for their
three runs.
Port' St. Joe picked up four
runs in the first inning, two in
the second and sealed their
win with an eight run third
inning. Carrabelle scored in
the third and fourth.

The Sharks only loss of the
week came to the strong
Liberty County team Friday
afternoon. Liberty, who is
whipping everything which
walks on the field, this year,
collected 14 hits off Chris
Butts and Mitch Burke and
worked them for 11 runs to
blank the Sharks, 11-0.
Ross tossed a one-hitter for
the Bulldogs, a single by
David Beardon.
Mitch Burke was the start-
ing and losing pitcher, with a
record now of 0-2. Burke gave'
up four runs off five hits, four
walks and three strike-outs in
five innings, before giving
way to Butts who came on in,
relief in the fifth. Butts gave
up nine hits, allowed four
walks, seven runs and had one.
strike-out .
The game was 1-0, Bulldogs,
until that fateful fifth, when
Burke lost his stuff and the
Bulldogs worked he and Butts
for four runs before the'inning
was over. Librty County
picked up three more runs
each in the sixth and seventh
innings. .

'In the first game Saturday,
the Sharks and Havana were
tied, 7-7 at .the end of seven


errors again, but this game,
they collected 14 hits and put
them with five Havana errors
to gain the win.
Stacey Strickland, a fresh-
man, was the winning pitcher
for the Sharks, going. four
innings before being relieved
by Burke in the fourth inning.
Burke struck out the last three
men he faced.
The Sharks really jumped
on the Havana pitching in the
second inning, when they put
10 runs on the board, including
Burke's three run homer. The
Sharks went on to score four
more, runs in the third inning
and seven in the fourth.
The game was ended after
five, inning, because, of the
10-run rule.

Judge Rules In duPont Case


Belin, Coldewey, Thornton Allowed to Stay As Trustees
. ' ' * *' * /* * . **'* ',


TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT
Crippled children and the elderly in
Delaware and Florida are due almost $5
million because assets of the Alfred I.
duPont Trust were under-valued in 1980, a
state circuit judge has ruled. :
However, Judge Lawrence D. Fay said
Monday that three trustees sued by the two
states for alleged conflict of interest may"
continue to direct affairs of the trust
established by the late industrialist-financier.
Fay's ruling came in a suit filed by both
states contesting the way money from the
trust was distributed. The suit asked that J. C.,
Belin, W. L. Thornton and T. S. Coldewey be


removed as trustees.
Fay said any potential conflict of interest
involving the three has not been detrimental
to the old people and handicapped children
the trust was meant to serve.
A defense attorney said 'rst of the $5.
million ordered by Fay already-had been
paid. But an attorney representing Delaware
said the ruling nevertheless would have an
effect in the future.
'The duPont trust must pay all of its
income or .three' percent of its assets each
year to the Nemours Foundation, which
operates a children's hospital and a clinic for
the elderly in Wilmington. Del.. and a


children's hospital in Jacksonville.
Fay set the value of the trust as of
December 31, 1980, at $805,290,384, or
$165,294,800 more than the trustees claimed.
,Delaware and Florida had claimed the estate
was worth about $1 billion,.
The judge said that to satisfy stipulations
of a 1980 settlement on the manner the trust
should be administered, the trust mujst pay
three percent of the difference between his
evaluation and the trustees' - or $4,958,844 -
to the Nemours Foundation.
Defense attorney Fred.H. Kent, Jr., said
that in 1980, income from the trust was. about
3.5 percent of its total value, leaving only


about $1.5 million to be paid.
"We're delighted," Kent said. "We had
already paid most of that - all of the
income."
DuPont, a member of the Delaware
manufacturing family who had moved to
Florida, died in Jacksonville in 1935, leaving
an estate with a value estimated as high as
$40 million.
The estate owns and operates St. Joe
Paper Company, St. Joe Container, St. Joseph
Telephone and Telegraph Company and
Apalachicola Northern Railroad Company,
all here in Port St.. Joe.

S; The. Gulf County School
Board has taken a favorable
look at joining forces with 14
other counties to lobby, for a
more equitable funding of
small districts from state
funds.
Meeting last week in. their
meeting room in .the Court-
house, the Board is taking
the action under serious con-
sideration in order to protect
themselves from a continuous-
eroding of state funds ,-
especially state funds' coming
to smaller counties. Gulf
County was one of many
counties which saw a drastic
and sizeable reduction in state
Funds this school year after a
budget had been drawn up and
spending patterns set. "If we
hadn't instituted some cuts in
expenditures last year and
already reduced our forces
considerably, we would have
been in real trouble this year,
just like many other small
school districts have been",
Superintendent Walter Wilder
said.
Funds are distributed from
the state's 'education fund.
based on' a formula which
includes cost of living, student
load, daily attendance and
statewide population. "The
formula costs small counties'
an equal share of funds many
lihmei"Wilder aid. "We hope
our efforts will be successful
in doing something about
� this."


TABLE PLANS
The School Board has tabled
plans to continue the board's
plans to complete a new
Wewahitchka 'Elementary
School complex. A part of the
plan was completed late last
year and occupied early this
calendar year, but continuing
the plans has been shelved for
the time being.
The school construction
plans were placed on the back
burner because the county
would not have enough state
generated capital outlay funds
to do the complete project at
this time. "It would mean
levying some local taxes spe-
cifically for this. project",
Wilder said, "and with our tax
base as it presently is, we
can't just tack on a mill or two
for construction without hit-
ting a "w people real hard.
SOu.-'new $25,000 homestead
exemption has worked a hard-
shbp with us in this respect. In
the past we coulil tack on a
mill or two and maybe cost a
tax-payer six or seven dollars
a year. Now, if we tack on a


mill for any reason, the people
paying taxes feel it to the tune
of $75;00 to $100.00. That
makes a difference."
The Board will spend tte
construction delay time taking
a closer' look at available
finances for the project.,

The School Board has gone
into the roofing business in a-
small way.

recently developed areas are
frequently infertile. Flower
beds should be fertilized prior
to planting or at planting time
and repeated on a monthly
basis. Apply 8-8-8 or a similar
complete fertilizer at the rate'
of two pounds per 100 square
feet of bed area. Controlled
release fertilizers are ideal for
Florida's sandy soils. Plants
usually grow much better with
a continuous nutrient supply
and labor is reduced since
controlled release fertilizer
application frequency is less
than for rapid release fertili-
zers. Controlled release fertili-
zers can be incorporated
uniformly throughout the soil
before planting and applied on.
the soil surface of established
plantings.
Annuals purchased in com-
partmentalized plastic flats
usually have pot bound root
systems. If planted intact, the
root system will be slow to
establish in the surrounding
soil and plants wilt suffer
moisture stress. A preferred,
method is to loosen and
untangle the root system
without breaking the soil ball.
Plants recover rapidly and
establish quickly. Tall and
spindly plants should be prun-
ed to half their original size to
produce more attractive
plants with more flowers.
Weeds should be controlled
either by hand, weeding or
mulching. Black plastic mAl-
"ches should never be used
except when a layer of organic
mulch (woodchips, pine bark,
etc.) is added on top of the
black plastic mutchers. The
addition of organic .matter
over the plastic reduces heat
absorption and masks the
artificial appearance of black
plastic.
Mulching materials should
not come in contact with'plant
stems. The high moisture
environment created by mul-
ch increases the chances of
stem rot which can result in
plant death. Some annuals
such as petunias develop
yellow leaves chlorosisis)
