The City Commission has
started work on the City's new
budget for the coming fiscal
year and will get further into
the financial plan in a special
meeting this morning.
The Commission took its
first tentative look at the
budget in a special session last
.Thursday, becoming familiar
with the needs for the coming
The City has received its
information from Property
Appraiser, Joyce Williams,
showing the amount of taxable
property on the rolls for the
coming year and outlining the
increased amount of taxable
property on the rolls.
According to Williams' re-
port, the City will have an.
additional $26 million on the
tax rolls this year. Most of this
increase comes', from new
construction and .imiprove-
ments to existing property.
Williams' report shows the
City will have $132,798,603 in
taxable property rolls this
year. Last year, the figure for
taxable property was $106,-
This year, it will require-
3.09 mills to collect the same
amount of tax dollars as
collected last year. Last year,
the City actually levied 3.846
mills and this year, tentative
plans are to levy 3.306 mills.
.The milUe.,y for this year
will.be a'reduction in the rate
of le"y from last year, but the
increase in valuation will

taxes received by a small
amount, based on the tenta-
tive budget plans which have
been made thus far.

in between these two statistics, since he was killed while -

Wednesday during the noon hour.

killed when he ran his

just before he hit the truck, near the dual rear wheels

Judges Ruling Stuns Both Sides of Dam Controversy
J .' ; ** 0 '. l n B, 't .Se fD C''-
: Both the proponents and. opponents for
removal of the Dead.Lakes dam were stunned
Friday by a ruling by'Calhoun County Judge
stating that the Dead Lakes Water Management
Board was serving illegally.
Judge Jiin Godwin, County Judge of Calhoun'
County, unwittingly placed thj new dimension in
the controversial subject, when he gave a ruling
regarding the Dead Lakes Board in regard to,
ruling on another matter entirely.
A 'fisherman had appeared before Judge
Godwin's court'facing a charge of fishing without
a Dead Lakes fishing permit. The fisherman's
defense Was that the fishing permits were
established by a Board which had been abolished
in 1975, when the Northwest Florida Water
Management District was created. The defendant
.claimed the.new board had' jurisdiction over the
Dead Lakes and permits established by the Dead
Lakes Board in the middle 1950's were now not
Judge Godwin had taken the matter under
consideration earlier in the month and gave his
ruling this past week end.
Judge Godwin's ruling also had the effect of
placing another facet into the fight on whether or
not to remove the Dead Lakes dam.
in a meeting filled with controversy last
Thursday night, the present Dead Lakes Board
decided,, in a three-two vote to -withdraw an
application made by a previous board to, the
Northwest Florida Water Management District
for permission to remove the dam. The subject has
been the subject of bitter controversy for the past
six months, with definite sides being drawn up on
both sides of the matter.
On the on4 side, several property owners are
bitterly opposed to removing the dam, which was
established in the late 1950's to. maintain a.
constant water level in the lakes. A group of
sportsmen- and conservationists are just as
bitterly dedicated to removing the dam, which
they claim evidence shows is killing the fishing in.
Those in favor of removing the dam showed
just how determined they are to see the act
accomplished at the meeting Thursday, which saw
virtual chaos result as the Dead Lakes committee
attempted to make the motions and take the vote
on whether or not to withdraw the removal
Hurling charges, violation of the law 'and
comments, the crowd vehemently disagreed with
the action of the Committee when they voted to
asked for removal of the application.
Now, with the spectre hanging over the entire
situation that the committee is not a valid'
committee, everyone involved has more or less:
just stood back and held its breath.
"We're just waiting to see what the Governdr:
and the Cabinet say about this", Harland
Pridgeon, a member of the threatened committee
"It was a surprise to us, but it couldn't have
come at a better time", a member of opposition to
the dam said concerning Judge Godwin's ruling.
Neither sideaseems to know what will happen
next. A ruling from the Governor, regardless of
what it may be, is sure to stir up a new battle to be
fought in the continuing disagreement.

mine came by and spotted me
sitting in the room. He hesi-

castically, "what on earth are
you doing here?. You are
suppose to be in the hospital or
at least be sick. Why aren't
you in bed?"
I tried to think quick but the
stay in the hospital had dulled
my senses. "Well, I, I..."
"Shut up!" she said deter-
minedly, "and get .out of the

Senescence is an aging pro-

this mean it's time to stop
A. As we enter the retirement
? years, it becomes more dif-
ficult to shift from seeing in
light to seeing in darkness.
The pupils of the eyes be-
come smaller, requiring'
more light to see clearly.
The lenses inside the eye
also become less clear. It
becomes more difficult to
shift from near-seeing to
distance-seeing tasks. Side
vision may diminish, or col-
ors may appear dimmer.
Many conditions can be
corrected so that you can
see more clearly. You may
require a stronger pre-
scription than the one you
'use during day. In the
meantime, keep your
glasses absolutely clean,
and avoid frames with wide;
temples (side pieces) that
block side vision.
Choose a car with a clear
(untinted) windshield. It is
preferable to use sun,
glasses for daytime driving
when necessary and get as
muchlight as you can when
you drive at night.:"
Have your eyes examined
more frequently so changes
in your visual acuity can be
uncovered and corrected.
You may be able to drive a
lot longer than you think.,
