The Gulf county Commission and the Port
St. Joe City Commission came to a tentative
agreement last Wednesday over a solution for
the garbage problems of south Gulf county.
Under direct orders by the state
Department of Enironmental Regulation to
bring its landfill operations up to state
requirements or come up with another
method of disposal, the county and city have
agreed to combine their resources and efforts
to change the present method of garbage
disposal in order to cause it to meet the
approval of the state.
Landfill operations throughout the state
have come under fire from DER during the
past five years, particularly in coastal
counties with high water tables, such as Gulf
Under the present state formula, only one
landfill operation in Gulf county meets the
state requirements, and that one site is at
Buckhorn, near the northern county line.

Port St. Joe to handle the garbage from the
south end of the county. The device would
compact all garbage and trash from the south
end of the county and transported to the
burial site at Buckhorn for disposal.
The compacting operation is expected to
cost around $300,000 initially, including the
equipment to haul the; compacted garbage
with. The agreement reached by the county
and city would have each share equally in the
purchase price and one government agency-

The City of Port St. Joe will be offering reduced
rates on sewer services billed through the summer,
beginning with the bill customers receive on July 1.
This reduced sewer rate is offered each summer by
the City to sort of ease the expense of watering yards. To
make the reduced charge, the customer is charged an
average of his sewer charges for the other nine months
and charges the average for the months of July, August
and September, rather than the percentage of the water
bill, which is the normal procedure.
The only catch is that the customer must apply for
the reduced rates. If you desire to use your water more
during these three months but don't particularly desire
to pay the large sewer bill, just come by City Hall and
sign up. Your sewer charges will then be averaged over
the next three months. If you fail to call, your sewer bill
will be based on a percentage of the water charges which

I was invited to attend a

This, however, didn't last long
for there were many stories
waiting to be told. And stories
are always best on nights like
Fishing was one of the main
topics. I heard fishing stories

were stories of deer killed as
big as elephants-.well, small
elephants, I was not about to
mention some of my earlier
hunting days. I would have
been forever removed from
the roll of those in attendance.

grill and more drinks served,
by now at will. The conversa-
tion then turned to women. I
refuse to go into detail on this,
part of the conversation but I
will say this; some of the
stories made Clark Gable'
sound like Ned and the first
reader. John Travolta would
have been laughed from the
gathering. Bold and daring
lovers were among us and I
was unaware of it.
The steaks, potatoes, salad
and rolls were finally served
and the conversation grew
more mellow and reflective.
Great athletic accomplish-
ments were brought forth and
discussed. Comparisons of
past and current athletes were
given thorough analysis.
There was some talk about
various wives. This part was
always complimentary and
positive and, at some times,
downright loving. Respect and'
admiration was duly given.
The evening ended and with
dishes washed and house
cleaned we started home. As I
drove home I thought about
how much I enjoyed .the

looking forward to the next

Last summer the Mark 1
Club enrolled over 30 children
and ended the summer with a
fun-filled production of "The
Music Machine" which taught
about the nine Fruits of the
Spirit as taught in the Bible.
This summer's schedule will
be basically the same as last
year's: one hour of music, 30
minutes of recreation and
refreshments, and one hour of
Bible study. The children will
end the summer on Sunday,
August 21 with another fun
production of "Bullfrogs and
Butterflies", the sequel to
"The Music Machine". I

tested tor glaucoma?
A. Everyone over 35 years of
age should have their eyes
checked for glaucoma at
least every two years. If
there is a history of glau-
coma in your family, the
testing should be done an-
nually. During the glau-
F coma test, the optic nerves
are checked for damage,

A. No. Most optometrists use
a tonometer to measure the
pressure in the eye. The
eyes are lightly touched by
a small probe, or a puff of
air. A small register records
the amount of pressure in
millimeters to see if your
ocular pressure is within

If you have hunted on any of
the state's wildlife manage-
ment areas over the past few..
years, you are familiar with
the quota hunt permit applica-
tion form. Well, the old form
"bit the dust," and that's just
one of the changes in store for
hunters this year.
Eddie White, who heads up
the quota permit program for
the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commissibn, said chang-

form will be the first thing that
applicants will notice.
"The old three-part 8"x12"
form used since 1976 has been
replaced with a 3 V2"x8 %"
postcard," White explained..
"Instructions and hunt choi-
ces will appear on a separate
sheet of paper provided with
each application.'" .
