The Dead 'Lakes Water Management
Committeedwill test the legality of Calhoun
County Judge Jini Godwzi. Judge Godwin'
ruled: about a month ago that the Dead
Lakes committee was now an illegal body
and that their duties had been turned over to
the Northwest Florida Water Management
Committee, who, according to the Judge,
has jurisdiction over all bodies of water in
Northwest Florida, including the Dead
Lakes. "
The ruling came in a case in which a
fisherman was arrested for fishing in Dead
Lakes without a Dead Lakes fishing permit,
a 'permit which has ,been issued since the
dam at the end of the lakes was built.
Revenue from the permits pay the bonds
floated to build the dam.
Y If Judge Godwin's ruling was allowed
to standd: funds for managing the lakes and
paing for structures' built at the south end

Highland View to the western county
line.


Williams and Dr. Layne favor removing the
Dead Lakes dam and the other three,
chairman Forest Revell, Harland Pridgeon
and William Linton, favor leaving the dam
in place and finding other ways to control
the flow of water.
Floyd told the members of the commit-
tee present that no court in Gulf County had
ruled on the legality or illegality of the
permits as yet and advised that a Writ of
Mandamus be filed to have the appropriate
court in the county to clarify the matter. "It
would be a sort of 'friend of the court' suit"
Floyd said.
In the meantime, the courts will be
asked to instruct area game wardens to
enforce the license law which has been in
effect for at least 20 years.
Floyd said the court actions by the com-
mittee would clarify the license matter.
"After all, there has been no court ruling
declaring the permits invalid in Gulf
County" Floyd said, stating Judge Godwin's
ruling was valid only in Calhoun county but
cast a cloud over the license law in every
county.

Wednesday Robber

Strikes Again, Yesterday, At St. Joseph

Bay Florist Gets Quantity of Cash


An armed robber has
struck in the business section
of Port St. Joe for the third
time this month; each time
on a Wednesday.
Yesterday morning, at 9:10

f' r the day for business, the
St. Joseph Bay Florist and

armed robber and an unde-

people in the Wewahitchka area. Below is one of the many
camps on the Dead Lakes, barely visible through the trees at

taken. This was the third.
Wednesday in the month of
August in which a lone armed
robber has struck a relative-
ly small business in the
downtown section of Port St.
Joe. On August 3, a female
drug salesperson was ac-
costed by a robber as she left
the Gulf County Health De-
partment and kidnapped and
robbed. The following Wed-
nesday, an armed robber'
held up Costin's Insurance
Agency. Yesterday morning,
it was .the, St. Joseph Bay
Florist.-
Clerk Deanna Taylor saw a
short, slightly-built black
man come. into the store. He
told her he wanted money
and she answered, "Are you
.serious?"
The man showed how ser-
ious he was by taking out a
butcher knife and answering,
"Yes, I'm serious".
The robber took the money
and locked Mrs. Taylor in the
restroom after tying her
hands. He then leaked a chair
up against the door and left.
The man was described as.
being in his late teens or
early 20's. He was dressed in
a light .colored jacket-type
shirt, blue jeans and suede
shoes. He wore a bill-type
cap.
Sheriff's investigator Char-
lie Hill said the description
answers the same descrip-
tion given by the first rob-
bery victim on August 3. The
robber of Costin's Insurance
was described as being about
six feet tall.
Hill said several suspects
were rounded up in just a
short time following the
robbery, but Mrs. Taylor
said they didn't look like the


man who had held the knife
on her and taken the money.
Hill said a reward has
already posted for informa-
tion leading to the arrest and
conviction of the latest rob-
her. Rewards have also beer)


posted for information lead-

robbers in the other two
cases also.
Hill said an intensive in-
vestigation is being conduct-
ed in all three crimes.

School


Student Enrollment Down In

County; Slight Increase In City


Gulf County Schools start-
ed their new year last
Thursday morning at 8:10
a.m.; a week earlier than the
ordinary starting date.
The early start allows the
school to complete its first
semester by the Christmas
holiday break, according to
Superintendent of Schools, B.
Walter Wilder. School will
also complete its 180 days of
classroom activity earlier
than usual, according to
Wilder.
As has already been re-
ported in The Star, Gulf
County students will not be-.
able to tell very much
difference in their school


year, even though school
districts in the remainder of
the state have been lengthen-
ed.
In addition to the longer
school day, most school
districts will see a difference
in their curriculum in order
to accommodate new state
requirements for graduation
credits. Again, Gulf County
School students will hardly
notice the difference, since
their requirements were
within just a couple of
subjects meeting the new
state requirements anyhow.
Prior to the current year,
most of the state's school
districts set their own cri-


teria for graduation credits.
ENROLLMENT DOWN''
Following a trend set a few
years back, when the baby
boom was a boom no longer,
Gulf County's school system
reported a few less students
enrolling in classes at the
beginning of the new year
last Thursday.
Gulf Schools had a total of
2,198 students report for
classes. All schools except
one, in the county, showed a
decline in student enrollment
on the first day.
Both Port St. Joe Schools
reflected an increase in the
number of students this year.

Our Crime Rate



Is Going Down


According to a report from the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement, Gulf County has exper-
ienced a decrease in crime during
the past year. It was good news to
see that Gulf county had its crime
reduced some 11.4 percent below
.the year before.
* Until just recently, Gulf County
S had not experienced a single
seriouss crime during the year. By

been performed. Still, we're all sort
of fussy in that we want our
committed criminal acts solved
after they are done.
We can all sit back and
criticize our law enforcement
people for their performance. How
many of us, given the fact that a
crime has been committed, can
take that fact and put a face or a
name in the act of perpetrating that
crime? Mostly we have no idea who
commits a crime, but we expect
our law enforcement people to
know just who did it and how.
Law enforcement, like many
other activities, is a matter of using
your head, noticing things, and
being able to put two and two
together and arrive at a sensible
conclusion. All of that isn't as easy
as it sounds.
We suppose we have been as
critical as anybody toward our law
enforcement people, but if we look
at the figures put out last week by
FDLE, we see that criticism isn't
really due them. Improvement by
11.4 percent didn't set a record; it
wasn't even the best record among
the counties which showed im-
provement; but it was pretty darn
good and should earn our congra-
tulations for those who work long
hours to protect the lives and
property of the rest of us.



Picture

an automobile accident. In addition
to the life being lost,. there is
usually one or, more who are
seriously injured, who must suffer
agony and -long stretches of pain
and inactivity until they recover.
An automobile accident isn't fun
for anyone.
Accidents which really burn
our innards, are those similar to
the one in Panama City recently,
where a man and his son were
killed when their car was hit from
behind by a speeding pick-hp truck.
According tothe news stories about
the accident, the man in the pick-up
truck had as his first point of
concern after the crash the fact
that he had spilled his 6eer!
We'd like for you people to be
careful out there; those highways
are tough on those who go about
running into one another.
They are tough enough on those
of us who are just trying to survive;
to avoid being hit.


Serene Dead Lakes Stirring Up Some Turbulent Tempers

, J .o ., ,


I have dode a lot of things
in my life and accomplished
very little. What I have
accomplished I have worked
for. Oh, I have been lucky at
times, but luck has not been
my middle name...not by a
long shot! To date, however,
I have managed to come out
on top....well, some of the
time.
When I was in the ninth
grade I was the best ing-
pong player in our school. It
took two years of practice,
early in the morning land
after school, but I finally beat
the school champ. With Ihat
mental trophy safely tucked
under my belt, I gave up the
game.
The next year I tried out
for football at high school.
This time there was stiff
competition and the physical
demands were much greater.
Again, with the determina-


tion of a cat climbing a tree
after a bird, I won. It was not
easy. I would practice at
night, after I had done my
chores and 'I thought about it


day and night. I dreamt
about it and my dreams
came true. I believe that
dreams do come true!

Disagrees with Policy

of Pay In Advance


Some years ago, I was
rather proud of Robert Neu-
man for having the (if you'll
pardon the expression) guts
to take on the then poorly run
and poorly maintained cable
tv system that existed in Port
St. Joe.
However, a month ago
(July 20, 1983) I paid my bill
for July 16 through August 15,
1983, and was told there
would be a penalty charged
next month, if I did not pay
by the 15th of the month. I

"do or die" situation. You
see, with each step in life you
take, the more there is riding
on the line. When I was trying
out for football it was "do or
go home," and I just didn't
want to do that. I needed an
education. So, I did and it
was much harder than the
high school step.
My success with women is
another subject worth men-
tioning. I am not a Bert
Reynolds look-alike and this
has created some very com-
peti e and interesting chal-


lenges for me. Well, I'm not

I know Charlie is walking all over
the. neighborhood, simply because it
doesn't hurt to walk anymore. It feels
too good to quit.
One of the side benefits you get
from these spare scrap metal parts is
the cosmetic benefits.
For years, Charlie couldn't stop a
hot ground ball coming his way. He
gave it the old college try, but he


the horse. He already was assuming
the position, he just needed the height.
Now, if he goes horseback riding, he
will have to remember to bend his legs
in order to get on board.
Charlie could walk the deck of a
boat without aay trouble, since his
legs were already in position for that
swinging gait of a walk. He'll have to
remember to assume the position


now, or he'll fall overboard if the
water gets a little choppy.

SPEAKING OF COSMETIC ef-
fects, Charlie was short and squat,
like me, when he was bow legged. I'm
sure the bow legged condition took
from his stature somewhat and it was
to be corrected with the surgery he
had from the mechanic with an M.D.
behind his name.
I haven't seen Charlie since he
came back home. I have tried to look
him up on occasion, but he either
hasn't gotten to the spot I went to see
him or either he had just left.
Charlie was about my height,
around 5' 7", but now when I finally
run into him, I expect him to be at
least seven feet tall. There was that
much of him turned under back when
he was bow legged two months
ago.
There's no doubt about it. He can
reach up on any top shelf in town now,
without a ladder. Now, he'll have
trouble with the pigs running under


his legs rather than between them.
He'll have trouble picking up things
from the floor, since when he bends
over, his arms will be so short in
comparison to his legs, they just won't

thorough going over with the metal
detector, thinking he is concealing
some weapon with which to high-jack
the plane. He'll set off the metal.
detector for sure.
But, Charlie won't mind. No
longer will the old knees hurt every
time it clouds up, or turns cold, or they
stay in one position for too long a time,
or for no reason at all. No longer will
he be referred to as Shortyy", or have
to get a-straddle of rather than sit
down in a chair. Life will be different
and all because of a machinist with an
M.D. after his name who has a knack
for putting in those new-fangled
stainless steel joints, replacing the old
worn out bones.
Ain't science wonderful?

Dead Lakes-


between the Chipola and
Apalachicola Rivers, caus-
ing the Apalachicola River to
back up into the Chipola,
forming the lakes.
Pridgeon said the Corps
dug the Cut-off to facilitate
steamboat service to the
naval stores and lumber
operations at Wewahitchka
and further north on the
Chipola River. "Before the
cut-off, the boats had to come
up the Chipola and then go
right back down to the
Apalachicola to go north to
Columbus, Georgia," Prid-
geon said.
Pridgeon said that before
the Jim Woodruff Dam was
put in at Chattahoochee, the
Dead Lakes was regulated by
the Apalachicola River,
pointing to rings on cypress
trees as the high water mark


Letters
(Continued From Page 2)
I had received no service and
30 days were due. I requested
that they review their policy
and advise why they should
charge a penalty plus the
normal billing (if not paid by
the 15th) without having
given me one ounce of T.V.
service. '
I guess I needn't tell you
what happened today, Au-
gust 17, 1983.1 I went to pay for
the period of August 16
through September 15, 1983
and, Gulf Cable TV charged
an additional $2.00 penalty.
Based on my simple calcu-
lations, without the use of
computers, etc., Gulf Cable
T.V. has taken one giant step
too far, for those of us who
owe nobody nuthini
When a business can arbi-
trarily make a policy deci-
sion that indicated, not only
that you must pay 100
percent in advance but that if
you do not make such a
payment- yod, as the reci-
pient of the service must pay
a penalty if you're five
minutes late
Wellmll- I don't have
Cable T.V. anymore. And I
hope a few others will make a
similar decision to straighten
out a very poor policy.

Pridgeon says his position
is to investigate what will
happen if the Dead Lakes

whatever is best for the

In this investigation, Prid-
geon said the present Dead

ed to cut two holes in the

bottom in its deepest spot.
"We plan to cut out two four
foot by eight foo* sections, to
allow the river to flow free
and carry off silt.
Pridgeon says the holes
will be cut in the dam
immediately after the legal-
ity of the Dead Lakes com-
mittee is tested by the courts.
"If we are found to be a legal
committee, we'll start work
immediately on cutting out
the panels," Pridgeon said.
He went on to say the
committee already has
someone lined up to cut out
the panels.
In the meantime, the draw-
down gates on. the' dam
structure remain open and
allowing water to run out of
the lakes. The draw-down
gates were opened, in late
1981 by the former Dead
Lakes committee, which was
replaced against its will by
Governor Bob Graham early
this, year. The draw-down
gates, have been open since
1981, except for'a short time
they were closed after they
were sabotaged late last
summer. '
In the meantime, Pridgeon
and others have.said fishing
has been better in the laker,
this year than it has been' in
several years. Still, obser-
vers say there have been no
shellcracker beds reported ini
the lakes this year.
Pridgeon said also that the
snails the shellcrackers feed
on are returning to the lakes.
Some observers say they
were killed off about three
years ago for some unknown
reason..Pridgeon said there
seemed to be more of them
this year than there were last
year..
Some observers say silt is
smothering the lakes. Prid-
geon says he and committee
chairman Forest Revell have
sampled the lake's bottom
near the dam and found no
silt.
Pridgeon says the present
commission' is pledged to
leave the gates open on the
draw-down structure. "I '
don't want to do anything to
hurt the Dead Lakes", Prid-
geQn said. "They are too
beautiful and they have been
here too long for us to
damage them intentionally."
There seems to be a lot of
people on both sides of the
issue with that same opinion.

THE LAZY EYE
Q. What is a "lazy eye"?
Why would a doctor patch.
the eye that sees more
clearly?
A. This procedure is design-
ed to force the use of the
weaker eye to strengthen
the vision in it.
Amblyopla, or lazy eye,
usually develops when a
person can't use both eyes
together, or when there is
a large difference in
visual acuity between the
two eyes. Since the im-
ages received by the
brain are so different, the
brain rejects what it re-
celves from the weaker
eyeand-over a period of
time-this continued re-
jection decreases the vi-
sion in that eye even fur-
ther. Patching the 'eye
S with bettervisual acuity
forces the brain to inter-
pret the image received
fromthe weaker eye, and
therefore forces the child
to use it. Glasses, vision
training and even contact
lenses are often used in-
stead of, or in conjunction
With, patching.
z Q. If a child keeps bumping
into things onhis left side,
could t meanthat his left
Seye isnot seing well?
A. Only a complete eye ex-
amination can det ine
- whether a child's tenden-
cy to bump into things is
vision related. If the vi-
sion in his left eye is blur-
red, or being repressed,
the bumping into things
would be vision related.

COMMODITY PROGRAM
Like all government pro-
grams, the commodity pro-
gram, which was initiated to
get rid of some surplus
cheese, is now growing, and
has more food-stuffs on its
give away program.
For this reason, the county
must now make other ar-

rangements for the operation
of the program, even though
they didn't ask for it in the
first place. In the. past,
Mosquito Control Supervisor,
Doug Kent, has' been' hand-
ling the program as a side-
line to his regular duties.
Now the program has
out-grown Kent's spare time,


so other arrangements must
be made. The Commission
will meet in the next few days
with the Community Service
committee and try to make
some arrangements where
the two Community Service
directors' in the county can
run the'program. "
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the Commission:
-Agreed to work up; plans
for use of the surplus Corps of
Engineers property at White
City, should ,the county be
successful in acquiring the
property.
-Heard Chairman Branch
report the County's land use
program had no authority to


regulate actual land use
without accompanying or--
dinances.
-Received four bids on a
new ambulance for service in
Port St. Joe. A decision will
be made ."on the bids by the
next meeting date, after they
are examined by the Ambu-
lance Commissioner and the
ambulance service director.
-Agreed 'to allow both
funeral homes to service
travel back and forth to the
Medical Expminer for autop-
'sies at a rate of $1.25 per
mile, one way.
--Agreed to purchase fill
dirt when needed and get out

Water S

Trees ,

By Ralph J. Edenftleld
County. Forester :
Ornamental shade trees
are passing through a critical
stage at this time because of
Sdry weather, and the ap-
proaching fall season. As
shade trees, particularly:
those not properly cared fobr,
go through this period they
become -weaker and are
more' susceptible to insect
anddisease attack. In view of
this, valuable shade trees
should receive an inch of
water, during one applica-
tion, each week through the

growing season.
Trees -that grow in yards
are existing under unfavor-
able growing conditions at
best. Foot traffic under tree
branches pack the soil Which
reduces oxygen, and causes
difficulty of root penetration,
of the soil for future growth.
As leaves fall they are
cleared ',away, eliminating
their usefulness as plant
nutrients, retention of soil.
moisture, and as .'a medium
for soil organisms required
for breaking down humus:
into' plant. food as well as
maintenance of soil perme-
ability. Lawn grasses under
tree branches use a good
portion of soil moisture and
added fertilizers before trees
get a chance at it. Therefore,
to have pretty healthy shade
trees, a considerable amount
of carein the form of timely
feeding and watering is re-
quired. Healthy vigorous
trees seldom have problems
with either diseases or in-
sects.

Encephl
With the advent of warm
weather and recent heavy
raips, Florida health officials
are- asking people who are'
often outdoors to protect
themselves against Eastern
equine encephalitis, a viral
infection of the brain and
nervous system that is trans-
mitted by the bite of certain
mosquitos. So far this year,.
one probable case of the
disease has been reported in
a youngster who had recently
been camping in the Ocala
National Forest.

CARD OF THANKS
The family of the late
Kloskia Lowery, Jr. and Mrs.
Susie P. Beach wishes to,
express their appreciation to
everyone for all deeds of
kindness extended to them
during the illness and death
of their loved ones.
Thou are gone to the grave;
But we will not deplore thee.
since God is thy ransom, thy
guardian, thy love,
He gave thee, He took thee.
He restoreth thee, for death
has no sting, since the Savior
died for all of us.

mlitis
Eastern equine encephali-
tis is transmitted through th
bite of infected mosquitos.
The virus is carried by birds.
Mosquitos acquire. the virus
by biting infected birds and
occasionally transmit the
infection to another bird or,
less often,' man and, other
animals. Because the-infee-
tion is transmitted through
birds, Florid uses a system
of sentinel- chicken flocks
maintained near urban areas
by county health depart-
ments and mosquito control
districts tQ detect presence of
the disease. The chickens are
checked periodically for in-
fection by 'means of blood
tests.
Almost all human cases
reported in Florida have
been in persons who live in
rural areas or work outside
or who are active in outdoor
activities such as fishing,
hunting, hiking or camping.
Because of the popularity of
outdoor activity and unusual-
ly large populations of mos-
quitos this year, Florida
health officials are asking
persons at increased risk to
take personal preventive
measures. These measures
include avoiding exposure to
mosquitos, especially during
dusk and evening, using
mosquito repellents, wearing
long-sleeved clothing of
thickly woven materials and
avoiding freshwater swamps'
where 'the virus,-: is often
found. Elimination .of mos-
quito breeding places such as
old tires or containers of
standing water around the
house is also important.
Eastern equine encephali-
tis has been recognized in
Florida for many years.
During the past 25 years, 37
cases in humans have been
reported in Florida. In 1980,
four cases were reported, one
each in Escambia, Holmes,
Polk and St. Lucie Counties.'
Three deaths resulted. No
cases were reported for 1981
and only one case in 1982.
The sentinel chicken sur-
veillance system is operated
mainly for the detection of St.
Louis encephalitis (SLE),
another mosquito-borne di-
sease. SLE, however, has
much greater epidemic po-
tential than does the similar
Eastern equine virus. The
goal of the surveillance pro-
gram-is to prevent outbreaks
of SLE. Since the vector
mosquitos feed by preference
on avians (birds) and other
non-human species, the de-
tection of viral activity in the
sentinels usually precedes
any large-scale infection of
humans. The early warning
provided by the sentinel
chickens allows mosquito
control activities to start or
increase. i
The Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services,
county health departments
and mosquito control dis-
tricts will continue to moni-
tor this surveillance system
throughout the' summer and
fall or until no new viral
activity is found.

All earnings that a person
has over his or her working
lifetime are recorded under
that number, and if an
incorrect number is used,
that person may not receive
proper credit for all of his or'
her earnings.
People should always car-
ry their Social Security card
with them when they get a
new job and make sure the.
employer copies the name
and number just as it is
shown on the card, the
spokesperson said
If a person ever becomes
aware that he or she has
more than one Social Securi-
ty number, he or she should
contact a Social Security
'office right away. The people
there will help get the
situation cleared up so that
the person gets full credit for
all earnings.
It is against the law for a
person to use someone else's
Social Security number. It is
also against the law for a
person to give false informa-
tion when obtaining a num-
ber. Penalties include a fine
or jail sentence, or both.
It is a good idea for a
person to check his or her
Social Security record every
three years or so .to make
