Spur Investigation of Count)


Gulf .County is without the services of. a
regular Sanitarian at this moment and is having
to use the services of "an officer out of the
Tallahassee office of the Health and Rehabilita-
ive Services.
(Commissioner Doug Birmingham started
the inquiry into the matter at' the County
Commission meeting Tuesday, when he asked if
the county couldn't'secure the services of a full
.^ Utimelispector toinspect and approve septic tank
installations. '"he lady coming out of Tallahas-
sde is not meeting ou needs; We need better,
':service"' Birmingham said. The 'lady coming
out of Tallahassee' is Shawn Berta with HRS,


who is doing the inspection and permitting on a
temporary basis while Winston Prather is off the
job.: Prather is the. regular inspector and
Chairman Billy Branch reported he was
presently off the job for an indefinite period of
time but nobody knew why.
The Star contacted a spokesman with the
Gulf County Health Department, which is
managed jointly by the State HRS and 'the Gulf
County Commission about the matter and found
out there was a full-scale investigation currently,
under way concerning septic tank permits and
installations in Gulf County.
According to the spokesman, Prather has


's inspector

been removed from Gulf County service and is
operating solely~in Franklin County while the
investigation is going on.
The problem is that the new septic tank law,
which went into effect in January of this year, is
not being followed in the issuing of Gulf County
permits. "We don't know if it is intentional.on the
part of the inspector or if it is ignorance of the
new requirements. That's what the investigation
is all about", according to the spokesman.
The :new law stiffened up septic tank
requirements in Gulf County, primarily because
of the delicate nature of the sensitive environ-

In his sunshine law viola-,
tion charge, Gates accused
members Harland Pridgeon,
William Linton and Forest
Revell with violation of the
law in a formal complaint
filed against them.
Gates listed two violations
of the sunshine law by the
three members. The first
violation was iri a meeting,
not advertised or open to the
public, in which the decision
was made to hire attorney
Pat Floyd to represent the
board. The second violation
was claimed to be a meeting
at which the three members
made the decision to remove
a request for a permit to
remove the Dead Lakes
Dam. The permit had been
, filed- for--by -thepesimious-
board from the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District.
In his violation charge,
Gates stated the three had
the, motion to remove the
permit request typed up at


their private meeting and
read at the public meeting
which was subsequently held
to get, the decision into the
record.
All three board, members
have denied the charges.
In his letter to Governor
Graham, Gates used some
pretty strong phrases in
asking the Governor why lie
hadn't' answered his July
letter, telling Governor Gra-
ham the problem isn't going


to go away nor is he, Gates,
going to stop his.campaign to
see the Dead Lakes dam
removed.
Gates singed the Governor
for his handling of the Dead
Lakes matter from the be-
ginning and asks that a
special prosecutor from out-
side the 14th "Judicial Circuit
be appointed to investigate
his charges against the three
present members of the Dead
Lakes Board.

Supervisor Sets Purge

Action for Voter Lists


Supervisor of Elections,
Cora Sue Robinson will be
purging the voting rolls with-
*in the next two weeks, as
provided by Florida law.
Mrs. Robinson said she will
be sending out purge cards
within the next few 'days.
Those who are being purged
but wish to remain on the
voting rolls, have only to sign
the card and send it back in.
"I will be sending out about
560 cards of people to be


puiged from the rolls"., Mrs.
Robinson said. A voter is
purged from the rolls if he
fails to vote in primary' and
general elections for a period
of time.
Two weeks after the purge
cards have been mailed out,
Mrs. Robinson has said she
will publish the names of
those who did not return
cards in the newspaper, to
make sure they receive no-
tice of their names being
purged from the voting rolls.,

The Port St. Joe City
Commission put the final
.tentative stamp of approval
on a budget plan for fiscal
1983-84 in a special session
Monday afternoon, setting
the millage rate and tax levy
for the coming year.
Although the mill rate is
less than last year, it still
is expected to bring in more
money than last year due to
increased property improve-
ments being placed on the
tax rolls this past year.
The mill rate for the new
year will be pegged at a
maximum of 3.494. Last year
the mill levy was 3.846. All of
this means that if a tax payer
is paying taxes on the same
piece of property with no
improvements since the pre-
vious year, he should get a
reduction in his taxes.
The increase in taxable
property meant that the City
would have to lower the rate
to 3.09 to bring in the same
amount of money as last
year. Various expenditures,
such as increases in em-
ployees medical insurance,
wages and installation of the
proposed garbage compact-

an ice cream truck last Thursday afternoon.


Accidents Almost Carbon Copies of Each Other


Two accidents, almost carbon copies of
one another, happened on the same
highway, 98, on the same afternoon,
Thursday of last week, according to Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Bill Godwin.
The first accident happened about seven
tenths of a mile west of Highland View at
4:00 'p.m., Thursday. Walteri Wilder was'
driving west in a 1979 Buick and Rickey L.
Lemieux of Panama City was headed the


same direction in a 1976 Chevrolet truck,
owned by the Meadow Gold ice cream
company of Panama City.
Lemieux started passing the Wilder
vehicle, when Wilder started making a left
turn. Lemieux tried to avoid a crash with his
truck, but lost control of the vehicle, causing
it to overturn on its side in the oncoming
lane of the highway. Wilder's vehicle
collided with the truck on its left side, spun


out, and ended up on the shoulder 'of the
highway on the same side of the road.
Wilder suffered cracked ribs from the
incident, but Lemieux was not injured.
Godwin, who investigated the accident
with the Gulf County Sheriff's Department,
said charges have not been filed as yet.
Later the same day, at 7:40 p.m.,
Pamela S. Carlisle of St. Joe Beach was
driving her 1983 Nissan east on Highway 98


near the Magellan Street intersection at St.
Joe Beach. Sonja Hutchins was a passenger
in the car.
Jeff Shearer, also of St. Joe Beach, was
driving east and attempted to pass Carlisle
as Carlisle started a left turn. The two
vehicles collided, causing the Carlisle car to
overturn on the right side of the highway.
Godwin said charges are also pending in
this accident.

shot down like dogs". That was the
thinking then and it's returning here
in enlightened 1983.
A philosophy professor at the
University of Central Florida, Steve
Levensohn, says the most violent
inmates from the nation's prisons,
should all be placed in just such a
place, where they will have no chance
to get loose and prey on law-abiding
citizens. Such a move would remove
the necessity of having to put such
prisoners to death, or allowing them
to languor for years in a prison on
death row, awaiting a boring and
uncertain future.
Such a prison system should
satisfy both the victims of the crime
and the criminals as well.
Levensohn says, "Either you're

a place where he couldn't get to
another victim, it might turn around
our trend toward an anarchistic
society.
It hasn't been too many years ago
when a family could go on two weeks
vacation, leave the front door to their
home unlocked and expect to find
things just as they had left them when
they return.
No more.
Even here in Port St. Joe, where
things are still nearly civilized, a
person who goes out of his house,
intending to go to the corner store for
a loaf of bread and return straight
home, is taking a chance to leave
home and leave the door unlocked.
I don't like it, and I'm sure you
don't either. Anything which will
discourage such doings, will find
favor with me.

ankle throbbing, I gamely
continued the game.
Finally we came to the
see-saw. Two of them were
on one end and I was on the
other. I jumped so they would
think that they pushed me
into the air. When I came
back down, however, it was
like I had sat down on a hive
of bees, but the pain was
much more intense (if you
can believe that). Anyway, I
decided it was time to try and
make it to the house. I would
have never made it to the
hospital, I reasoned.
I don't play with my kids
any more. I let other kids
play with them and let them
hurt each other.
I don't let my kids play
with me- any more, either.
They just don't fit in with my

don't want them hanging
around forty-year old men.
There's not a one of them

Septic Tank Permits


ment in the county. The land is low and sandy
and isn't the best environment for septic tank
installation. New regulations take this situation
into consideration, especially along the shore-
,line.
According to the source, at least two permits
for septic tanks which had been approved have
since been revoked because the situation didn't
meet new state regulations. One of the revoked
permits involved a large townhouse project on
St. Joe Beach which was stopped in mid-con-
struction until the matter can be resolved.
:, In the meantime, the Gulf County Commis-
"/ sion is upset over the situation because it takes
up to 60 days to get a septic tank permit now. In
the past, it wasn't unusual to apply for and
receive the permit in the same day.
INTRODUCE ORDINANCE
A suggestion that the county did not have a
viable comprehensive plan because an adoptive
ordinance had never been passed, which was
brought up at the last meeting of the
Commission, will probably be taken care of
within a month.
With Doug Birmingham expressing the lone
objection, the Commission introduced an ordin-
ance to be considered after the proper public
hearings, which will probably take about a
month. The ordinance would adopt the compre-
hensive plan, which isn't a zoning ordinance but
which presents a plan of land use for most of the
;: county. The plan was prepared some four or five
S years ago by a committee of citizens and
presented to the county. The plan was drawn up
at the insistence of the State of Florida.
' Bir~inghim objected' to the proposed
ordinance introduction because, as he said, "I
' have a problem with telling folks how they can
use their property". Of course, the comprehen-

sive plan doesn't have this power,. but
Birmingham says he fears adoption of the plan
will only be the first step toward zoning.
Other Commissioners had the same appre-
hensions as Birmingham. Everette Owens said,
"I don't want us to pass something which can't
be changed". Chairman Branch noted, "We can
make any changes we find necessary in the
future".
The adoption of the ordinance came up when
Wayne Childers, who is heading up a committee
to secure three property sites from the U.S.
Government, who has declared them surplus,
said the former Corps of Engineers property at
White City cannot be secured for recreational
purposes unless it is spelled out in the county's
comprehensive plan that the property has been
designated as a recreation area.
At the last meeting, attorney William J. Rish
told the board their comprehensive plan wasn't
"anything but apiece of paper" unless they pass
an ordinance adopting it.
So, adoption" of -the ordinance becomes
necessary if the comprehensive plan is to serve
the county any purpose. With. the free property
available to them if its use is designated in the
plan, it becomes important all of a sudden.
WANTS FRANCHISE
Glenn Stubbs, a Tallahassee developer, who
has developed a water system in the Cape San
Bias vicinity, asked the County Tuesday for an
exclusive franchise to furnish water in the area.
"We have already spent $250,000 on the
system and we're fiow planning for an additional,
300,000 expenditure on-the service, if we can get
the franchise. Naturally, we don't want' to spend
that kind of money with an intent of seeing some
return at some future date unless 'we can have


(Continued from Page 1)


some solid reason for making the investment".
In other words, Stubbs was saying he didn't want
to gamble $300,000 without some assurances of a
return on his money.
Stubbs said he had information that another
group was thinking about putting in a water
system in the area and felt the additional system
would drain off too many of the potential
customers to make either system profitable
enough to provide adequate service.
The Commission received Stubbs' proposal
with a sympathetic,attitude and said they needed
at least two weeks to consider the request and
decide what stipulations they would make of
Stubbs' company. Already, they have had
problems with private individuals putting in
installations which have later resulted in road
erosion. The Commission wants to make Stubbs'
company responsible for such matters, regard-
less of who does the work. Stubbs said such an
agreement could be worked out with no problem.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters to come before the
Commission, they:
-Approved of a bid of $40,360 from the
Excellence Company to furnish a new, ambu-
lance vehicle for the Port St. Joe squad. The bid
wasn't the lowest received, but was declared the
best one received by the Commission.
-Received seven bids to furnish 'the county
with a new backhoe for the Mosquito Contrpl
Department. Bids ranged from $102,591 to $74,651
with allowances for trade-in of an old vehicle
reducing the prices even further.
. ,'-Agreed to immediately send out letters to
the'beaches area calling for those who wished to
receive water from a newly planned system to
make deposits. The letters are to be sent out
within the next couple of weeks.

Eye
Openers

By Dr.
Wesley Grace


SMOKING AND VISION
Q. Will smoking almost two
packs of cigarettes a day
affect one's vision?
A. Many people find that
their eyes get irritated,
and often tear, when they
are in a smoke-filled
room, or if drifting'~moke
floats near them. It's
been found, in addition,
that the nicotine and car-
bon monoxide from
cigarettes can reduce the
acuity of night vision.
Nicotine, in excessive
amounts, causes the
blood vessels to constrict
and reduces the oxygen
supply to the eyes. The
presence of carbon
monoxide reduces the
blood's ability to absorb
and transport oxygen to
various parts of the body.
If the eye is not receiving
enough oxygen, the eyes'
ability to adapt from light
to darkness is diminish-
ed.
Studies have also shown
that the visual field is
sometimes narrowed by
lack of oxygen. When this
happens, the brain re-
ceives a narrower-than
normal image from the
eyes. Side vision is parti-
cularly susceptible to im-
pairment from lack of ox-
ygen.
More rare, but particu-
larly detrimental to good
vision, is tobacco
: ambloyopia (loss. of
visual sharpness and col-
or perception).
There is no hard and fast
rule about which smokers
will be affected in these
ways. We do know that
when a smoker with vis-
ual complaints about
night vision and peripher-
al vision stops smoking,
there appears to be an
improvement in the way
he or she sees at night
and side objects become
easier to see.

Teams by Attending Games


Defeat Vernon Yellow Jackets 41-0




Sharks Start Season with Win


Both teams suffered from
the first game jitters last
Friday night, as the Sharks
took on the Vernon Yellow,
Jackets in the season opener
for both.
The Sharks brought home a
41-0 victory in their first time
to meet the Jackets, but had
a hard time getting on track
with their game plan. Penal-
ties plagued the Sharks, who
picked up 10 for the game.
Three of the' Sharks' penal-
ties came on the first series
of downs.
The Sharks were unable to
generate any appreciable
offense until late in the first
.period and carried their
momentum over into the
second period, putting six
points on the board with only
a minute and three seconds
gone off the clock. Running
from their own 39 yard line,
quarterback Chris Butts laid
a screen pass out to Mike
Pittman, and Pittman scoot-
ed up the sideline for 71 yards
and the score.
Six minutes later, the


Sharks put together a drive
on the ground from Vernon's
42 and, after a home-run pass
to Tony Gathers in the end
zone was nullified by an
offensive pass interference
call, the Sharks ground it out
to the one yard line. Josh
Jenkins then plunged over
for one of his two touchdowns
of the night. Jenkins then ran
the extra point across, and
the Sharks had a 14-0 lead.
The second half was defin-
itely the Sharks' most pro-
ductive, as they added six
more points just a little more.
than two minutes later, when
Curtis Ray boomed across
the goal line from the four
yard line..
Jenkins saved the Sharks'
shut-out when the Jackets
failed to score on their best
opportunity of the game, as
the first half was ticking off
the clock. Jenkins 'caught the
Jackets' Tony Johns who had
pulled in a Don Brown pass
and was on his way to score.
The Sharks added seven
more points in the third


quarter when quarterback
Chris Butts scored on a one
yard plunge up the middle
and kicked the extra point.
In the last stanza, the
Sharks scored twice on a one
yard dive by Josh Jenkins,.
followed by the extra point
and a one yard run by Robert
Harris, with Butts kicking
both extra points.
The Sharks racked up a
total of 399 yards offense
while the defense held the
Jackets to only 59 yards for
the entire game. The Jackets


generated more yards gained
from Shark penalties than
they did from their offensive,
punch.
Josh Jenkins, who does
most of the ball carrying for
the Sharks, had 138 yards to
his credit for the night. The
Sharks aren's just a one-run-
ner team this year. Big
Curtis Ray ran for 52.yards in
nine carries. Mike Pittman
had 13 yards'on the ground to
add'to his 71 yard TD pass
play. Quarterback Chris
Butts carried five times and


picked up seven yards.
Charles Byrd carried the ball
once and picked up five
yards. Robert Harris added
three yards.
Defensively, Michael
Quinn led the Sharks with his
eight tackles. Stan Peters
had seven tackles and four
assists. Sidney Harris hit
Jacket runners with five
tackles and had one assist.
Robert Taylor had four tack-
les and Tan Smiley, three.
*NEXT WEEK
Friday night, the Sharks


will have a night off.in their
schedule.
Friday night, September
23, the Sharks will travel to

The Wewahitchka Gators
managed a touchdown in the
final period on a one-yard run
by Ed Baxley to escape a
shut-out in their opening
game of the season from

night.
Coach Bobo Owens' young
charges were unable to get

and even though the score-
was 14-0 at halftime, the
Gators. were still within

Dr. Pete Imber spoke to
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday,
telling the club of the.newest
medical specialty, Family
Practice.
Imber said the new spec-
ialty was originated in the
late 1960's when hospitals
started nudging -out general
practitioners in favor of
specialists. General practi-
tioners banded together to
form the Family Practice
specialty, which Imber says,
tends to 90 percent of the
ailments of the U.S. public.
The new specialty is just
what the name implies, ac-
cording to Imber. It is a
service which caters to the
health care of most people.
The specialty offers a round-
ed all-purpose medical ser-
vce from birth to death.
"Family practitioners are
medicines' first line of diag-
nosis and treatment", Imber
pointed out.
The speaker pointed out
that .even Family Practice
specialist could function
with better results if people
went to their doctor sooner
with ailments. "The earlier
you see your doctor, the
better for you and the
doctor", Imber said. He
pointed out that most people

Good Fertilizer Program Essential Garden Part


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director.
HA good fertilizer program
is an essential part of a
vegetable garden in Florida.
Plants need fertilizer -to
develop properly and to
produce vegetables of high
quality But fertilizers can
sometimes be confusing.
What do the numbers on the


label mean? And how much
of which kind should you use?
You can improve the fer-
tility of your garden soil with
animal manures or other
kinds of organic residue. But
to do the job right in most
situations you need a com-
mercial fertilizer with signi-
ficant amounts of the three
major plant nutrients. Plants

nutrients that your soil
doesn't already have in
amounts large enough for
vegetable production.


Shirley Says School


Handled Changes


Barbara Shirley, Director
of Instruction for Gulf County
Schools, spoke to the Rotary
Club last Thursday, telling
the club members of some of
the changes made in the local
school system over the past
few years,
Mrs. Shirley said the local
system had made some dras-
tic changes in the past 10 to 15
years, from integration to
setting up standards of ac-
complishment for gradua-
tion.
Mrs. Shirley said, "I think
the. schools are presently
doing a grand job, with the
resources available to them.
We have some soft spots, but
those of us involved in the
school system can be proud
of the school system."
'Pointing to the upheaval
which has been experienced
by the school system, Mrs.
Shirley. pointed to the 'com-
parative ease with which
Gulf County had experienced
the changes, while much of
the nation was still agonizing
over the social changes
which the schools, elsewhere,
are suffering.
Mrs. Shirley said she felt it
was within the realm of
possibility. that Florida
schools could be in the top 25
percent in the nation in the
next few years. She said
adding credits from science,
mathematics and 'English
and language arts would
have 'a definite affect on
students. In addition, Florida.
schools will be requiring a
major emphasis on composi-
tion, more history, a unit in
old world history, Axperican
Government, practical arts,
performing arts and life
management. "A student
will need tomake an average


of 1.5 on a 4.0 scale in order to
pass", Mrs. Shirley said.
In order to adopt state
standards, the county will
probably have to relinquish
more control over the local
system to the state depart-
ment, she pointed out.
"In Florida, most every
county has been setting its
own standards", she said.
Gulf County is getting into
the expanded state program
this year with the introduc-
tion of courses in computer
use. "We will receive $15,000'
from the state to get started
in the program. This should
make an initial purchase of
some hardware as well as set
up the classroom program of
computer sciences", she
said. In a short while.
computer courses will be
commonplace in the school
system.

ROY SMITH, Agent


For the sandy soils that are
so common in .Florida, we
usually recommend an 8-8-88
or 10-10-10 fertilizer.
For muck and peat soils
which are already high in
organic material, we recom-
mend something like a 0-12-20
fertilizer.
If the soil in your garden
isn't typical of either of these
soil types, you should probab-
ly have your soil analyzed.
Then you can choose a
fertilizer best suited to your
needs.
You should divide the
amount of fertilizer called for
into two or three applicat-
tions. About half should be
broadcast in the garden a
week or two before planting.
The rest should be applied in


shallow furrows on both sides
of the seed rows .at planting
time. This procedure is cal-
led banding. The furrows
should be about six inches
apart and only two or three
inches deep. Spread the
fertilizer evenly in the fur-
rows and then fill with soil.
The amount of fertilizer
you place in each furrow will
vary according to the dis-
tance between seed rows.
With narrow rows you'll have
more furrows in a given
area, and just a little fertili-
zer in each one. Where the
rows are wider, you'll have
fewer furrows so you can put
more fertilizer in each. Just
be sure to apply the right
amount for your garden, and
spread it evenly through the
furrows.
